Cell phones have become indispensable “tools” for modern society, and without them, life would simply be unthinkable to many. Now doctors from the Russian organization “League of the nation’s health” warn that these devices can be dangerous to our nervous system.
“The primary target is the nervous system, but the endocrine and reproductive systems are also targets” said Nikolai Kononov, vice president of the organization “League of the nation’s health”.
The danger lies in the biological effect of electromagnetic fields, including development of degenerative processes within the central nervous system, leukemia, brain cancer, and hormonal disorders.
Electromagnetic waves are particularly dangerous for children and pregnant women in advanced stages of pregnancy, which is why expectant mothers are advised to shorten conversations on their cell phones as much as possible
“We certainly don’t forbid the use of cell phones, but encourage reasonable caution, since 70% of the total population receives electromagnetic radiation from their mobile devices. Numerous studies have shown that the human body responds to this form of radiation, and although these reactions have not yet been fully studied, no one disputes that the use of mobile phones requires caution”, says Kononov.
Experts from “League of the nation’s health”, say it’s better to have 5 conversations lasting 1 minute, than having 1 conversation lasting 5 minutes. They also suggest that the interval between each call should be at least 15 minutes.
They also remind us that the level of electromagnetic radiation decreases with distance, which is why they recommend using “hands free” accessories. Experts also recommend we keep them away from vital organs, in our backpacks or bags, but not our pockets.
