Over the years there have been rumors and speculation that the radiation from cellphones could potentially be causing brain tumors. This rumor is thankfully false. A report from “Presidents Cancer Panel” found no evidence linking cell phone radiation to malignancies. Actually, since 1991 talking on the cellphone has increased by six times. Since that time the number of brain cancer incidences has been cut in half.
According to “cancer.org” since cell phones in the 90’s used to have antenna’s they gave off the strongest RF waves. There have been study links to these types of phones not only causing brain cancer, but skin and testicular cancer as well. To test this in the lab it was studied on Animals as well as people. It was found by this article that the waves given off from the phone aren’t quite strong enough to damage DNA. Because of this there is no proof that cell phones cause cancer so it is supported that the RF waves do not cause tissue or DNA damage.
