Non-ionizing radiation from cell phones may cause cancer

Non-ionizing radiation from cell phones may cause cancer. 44490.jpegA branch of the World Health Organization announced Tuesday cell phones are "possible carcinogens" -- a statement that was met with skepticism from many American cancer experts.

The statement came from the International Agency for Research on Cancer, which convened 30 international experts in Lyon, France, this past week to sort through data on cell phone safety, reports Lancaster Eagle Gazette.

The type of radiation coming out of a cell phone is called non-ionizing. It is not like an X-ray, but more like a very low-powered microwave oven, says WTKR Your NewsChannel.

Dr. Brij Sood, a radiation oncologist at Harrisburg Hospital, said people should take the findings of the study seriously.

"I think this is a very good study to bring to people's attention," Dr. Sood said.  "There may be some price to pay if we don't pay attention to this."

Since many cancerous tumors take years to develop, experts said it will take several more years of research to understand exactly what the risks are.   For now, Dr. Sood recommends keeping the phone away from your ear as much as possible.  He recommends using a wireless headset.

"As long as you don't bring the phones too close to your ear and keep it there for hours, I think the evidence is it reduces or negates the effect of that frequency," Sood said, informs abc27.
