Mobile phone towers hold antennas and other communications equipment. They flood the area for miles around with powerful high frequency radio waves to support the use of cell phones. This radiation causes various health problems. It is very dangerous for children and pregnant women. In this digital age we cannot live without these gadgets. So, it is important to take necessary precautions to protect ourselves from harmful radiations.
Some of the harmful effects can be:
• Cognitive decline
• Brain tumors
• DNA damage
• Calcium efflux
• Early Alzheimer’s
• Breast cancer
Have you ever seen a bee, sparrow, pigeon, or any bird flying and staying near the cell tower?…. I think No.
The reason is surface area of a bird which is larger than human body, so they absorb more radiation. Since fluid content is small due to less weight, it gets heated up very fast and also the magnetic field disturbs their navigational skills.
• Do not use mobile phones and laptops while charging.
• Keep your mobile phones away from you atleast 3-4 feet distance while sleeping.
• Children below 18 years of age and pregnant ladies should use phone only when necessary.
• Use ear phones while speaking on mobile phone.
• Do not work on laptops by keeping on your lap.
• Research has proved that consistent use of mobile phones raises the body temperature up to 2 degrees.
Inform your family and friends about the harmful effects of dangerous radiations so that at least the problem can be minimised.
