In this video, Dr. Mercola talks about the dangers of cell phones. As usual, I have added my notes underneath in case you are in a rush and don’t want to watch the video
Cell phone dangers
Notes on the video:
- In June 2011, a committee of scientists from 14 countries working for the World Health Organization, concluded cell phone radiation is a possible carcinogen.
- This radiation is classified in 2B category along with DDT, gasoline exhausts, burning coal, dry cleaning chemicals, working in a print factory.
- This was not new research, just a review of existing evidence.
- Over 5 billion people (80% of the world population) have a cell phone.
- 40% increased risk suggested.
- Most vulnerable group are kids that are getting access to cell phones earlier and earlier.
- Ignore traditional studies about safe phones. Pick your cellphone carrier appropriately. GSM is far more dangerous as it emits 28 times more radiation than CDMA networks.
- Danger to you is related to how far the phone is from your body. The further away the better. If you have hands-free/speakerphone, use it when possible.
- Wired “blue-tube” headsets are good.
- Dr. Mercola has posted over 200 articles on the dangers of cell phones on his site.
- Companies with vested interests may be keeping some of the facts from you.
This second video carries on from the first:
- This video discusses a few other “cover-ups” and battles that Mercola has been involved in. EVERYONE should know about this. This includes things like genetically modified foods, fluoridation, vitamin D / sunshine, use of mercury in dental fillings, etc.
