Electronic devices like cell phones seem to have been around for a while, but the first smartphone didn’t come out until 2007—less than 15 years ago!
As a result, smartphones and other modern mobile devices haven’t been around long enough for us to see their long-term effects. It may take as many as 30 years of focused study to pinpoint how cell phone radiation affects our health. However, the growing body of scientific research has indicated that electronic emissions do, in fact, have an effect on human biology (amongst other effects on the planet).
A majority of this research shows associations between EMF radiation and adverse biological effects, with a handful of notable publications finding evidence of causal effects, seen below.
On the other hand, some research has shown insignificant effects. While this research is just as important to consider as research showing significant effects, it is interesting to note that most of this research is funded by the cell phone industry, or those with a vested interest in the cell phone industry. Many independent scientists, such as Dr. Martin Pall, have found this research to be biased or designed to fail.
For example, Jeffry Fawcett, PhD, found that “of industry funded studies, only 27% found an RFR (Radio Frequency Radiation) effect. Independently funded studies found an RFR effect 68% of the time. This discrepancy is consistent among the effects listed.”
The long-term effects of cell phone radiation exposure will be better understood as the technologies continue to be a part of our lives along with our maturing scientific understanding. More studies are needed, yet enough data has been found for major health organizations to issue warnings. Even in manufacturer’s electronic device manuals, it is mentioned that radiation exposure should be minimized for safety’s sake.
As we await more research, we are left with a personal decision to make. If we can limit EMF radiation exposure, why wouldn’t we?
The following is a list of health concerns linked to Electromagnetic Radiation exposure and a synopsis of current research findings:
