According to a new study conducted by researchers from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel and published in the Biochemical Journal, as little as 10 minutes on a cell phone can trigger changes in brain cells linked to cell division and cancer.
According to them, in 10-12 years of human exposure to cell phones, there is a concern of increase in brain cancer.
The research also indicated that messaging late at night and falling asleep on the cell phone can lead to brain tumor all because you expose your body or brain to the radiation all night long.
Keeping your cell phones close to your head while sleeping, will alleviate the chances of getting diseases like brain tumors and can also weaken your immunity levels.
Children have a configuration of the skull which allows deeper penetration of cell phone radiation with a potentially greater risk.
If you are concerned about cell phone radiation, below is the list of 5 phones with the highest level of radiation.
Note: Specific absorption rate (SAR) is the prescribed level which must be adhered to. The maximum level allowed is 1.6watts per kg.
5) Huawei Vitria -- SAR 1.49
4) Alcatel One Touch Evolve -- SAR 1.49
3) Motorola Moto E -- SAR 1.5
2) Motorola Droid Ultra -- SAR 1.54
1) Motorola Droid Max -- SAR 1.54
We are not advising you to not use cell phones for it is already a part of our lives. This is just a mere awareness about how dangerous our "everyday buddy" is.
The best way is to switch off the cell phones at night or keep it as far as possible from your body.
