Also proven that better is the phone, higher is the radiation count, and higher is the chance of developing a tumor in the brain. Therefore a Galaxy S4 has more chances of giving you brain tumors than a simple samsung mobile, with only basic things that we need.
Cellphones are a necessity: a thing you can't live with, and a thing you can't live without. Scientists did find the connection between cellphone radiation and decrease in the sperm count in males. This time cellphone radiation is paving the way for brain tumors. The amount of radiation (cumulative or non-cumulative that damages the tissues of the brain) has to be determined so that phone companies can design phones such that the radiation stays below certified levels.
@ Mr. Roques, they can't be blamed or sued. True, there is no contract in place, but what could be the purpose of such a contract if there was any? Besides, should we take up this question with X-Rays and security scanners as well? All these things including mobile phones are for making our lives easy. Yes the cell phone manufacturers can be and should be pushed for bringing technology to reduce the radiation but they certainly can't be questioned about health issues.
@ shakeeb, I don't think mobile users are waiting for confirmed reports to quit using mobile phones. Have people quit smoking after confirmed reports and labels on cigarette packs telling the hazards of smoking? Mobile phones are way different from smoking. They have plenty of positive uses as well. It is impossible to think people would stop using mobile phones in anticipation of some future hazard.
Agreed-it is. indeed, confusing to know best habits here.
My understanding is that the goal should be to at least have some degree of separation between the deivce and your physical being as the radiation from the phone falls off rapidly with just the least bit separation. It is that "least bit" amount that I am not sure of.
Here is a link to the National Cancer Institute's research, which of course advocates "hands free" use.
One of the safe usage habits has me a little confused. Don't keep the phone in your pocket? Ok, are you telling me wearing it on your hip is better? If you are a man it's usually either in your pocket or on your hip. This is such a touchy subject because nothing has been proven.
