If you're a male rat and use your phone for more than 9 hours a day with your 2G or 3G mobile phone, you should be worried about Thursday National Toxicology Program (NTP) Announcement. But what if you are human?

The NTP announced the following results from a series of 30 million dollar studies that lasted more than a decade:

  • Clear evidence that high RFR exposure used by cell phones is related to tumors in the hearts of male rats. The tumors were malignant schwannomas.
  • Some evidence that high RFR exposure used by cell phones is related to tumors in the brain of male rats. The tumors were malignant gliomas.
  • Some evidence that high RFR exposure used by cell phones is associated with adrenal tumors in male rats. The tumors were benign, malignant or complex pheochromocytomas.

In this case, RFR is not a sound generated by Scooby-Doo but stands for high-frequency radiation, the type of Type of non-ionizing radiation emitted by cell phones. The studies also found that rat mothers and their newborns had a lower body weight when exposed to high levels of RFR during pregnancy and lactation.

But before you throw your cell phones in the trash (which you probably would not necessarily do), there are some limitations to these findings:

  • In the study, whole bodies of rats were exposed to RFR. This may differ from the way mobile phones are used, unless you have a huge cell phone or regularly cover tens of cell phones.
  • The level of RFR exposure was significantly higher than what you would normally receive from a mobile phone.
  • The studies mimicked the RFR of 2G or 3G cell phones that you probably no longer use.
  • The study found no clear evidence for female rats and male or female mice.
  • You are probably not a male rat. Biologically.

The results of this study should not panic you. Unless, of course, you are a male rat, because there are other reasons to panic if you suddenly find a male rat. These results, however, continue to underline that RFR are not completely harmless. It's easy to forget that your cell phone is a machine rather than a person, although your cell phone can talk to you, entertain and even comfort you today. Just as you would not embrace a microwave, you still need to be careful how you interact with a machine.

In addition, advances and deployment of mobile phone technology have far outperformed the understanding of potential health consequences. As the NTP study has shown, it may take a while to measure the health effects of RFR. The technology has changed dramatically since the beginning of the NTP study. Before more definitive statements are made in both directions, further studies on the potential risks of using mobile phones are needed. Keep in mind that cell phones have not undergone nearly as much safety testing as vaccines.

In the meantime, you may want to take the following 10 precautions:

  1. Carry your mobile phone as far from your body and head as possible. Do not keep it in your underwear when wearing this underwear. There are other ways to look bigger if you want to. And do not strap it on your head, because there are other ways to say, "I'm an idiot."
  2. Check where your phone is before you go to sleep. A cellphone can be like a bedside table. You do not want to wake up and realize that it is next to you.
  3. If possible, always use a speaker or a headset. This will increase the distance between the phone and your brain. Besides, it is never pleasant to press an object against the ear unless you are busy with such things.
  4. Avoid using your mobile phone if you have a weak signal. When the cell signal is weak (only one or two bars are displayed), the phone attempts to establish the RFR connection. This also helps you to avoid asking "what", "can you hear me" or "have you said so many times" love "or" glove ".
  5. Do not use your mobile phone to download large files or stream videos. This also increases the RFR output from your mobile phone. You can wait until you get to your computer or other device connected to Ethernet or Wi-Fi to download the video from cats falling from the table.
  6. Request clear identifications and information on the RFR exposure of products. Different devices may differ in their transmission. Do you ask for such emissions when choosing a phone?
  7. Do not wear your headset if you are not on the phone. Sure, you might want to look like Tom Cruise Impossible mission, However, headsets continue to release small amounts of RFRs, even if you do not "use" them.
  8. Turn your phone into airplane mode or turn it off whenever you can. A cell phone is like a toaster. If it is off, it is less likely that you will get hurt.
  9. Be wary of RFR shields or other devices claiming to reduce your RFR exposure. Surprise surprise. People are trying to sell you garbage that does not work. Many of them can even increase the RFR.
  10. Stop using your phone so often. A 5-year-old does not need a cell phone. Who the hell will he or she call? A stockbroker? There are many alternatives to using a mobile phone, e.g. B. the direct conversation with someone. You can reduce the use of your mobile phone by reducing the duration of your calls. If you tell him or her that you love him on the phone 50 times, it will not replace the fact that you forgot his birthday.

Technology in itself is neither good nor bad. In the words of Eric Clapton, "It's the way you use it." Remember to be familiar with the use of smartphones.
