It’s no secret that cell phone radiation is linked to negative health effects. That’s why the SAR value was introduced and radiation levels regulated. But what is interesting is that the latest studies indicate gliomas, a particular type of brain tumor that can affect the entire nervous system. And rather than kill you off, this type of tumor does worse: it makes life incredibly troublesome by disposing of particular sensory or motor skills, depending on which part of your brain is affected.
Of course, these results are still pending peer review, scheduled for late next month. But even as we wait for the final verdict to come out, I think it’s not too early to take preventative steps to at least reduce your own radiation exposure levels, and to reduce dietary factors that put you at increased risk. (Hint: That really is just another excuse to eat healthier!)
At the same time, I’d like to take this opportunity to test out a new post medium – adding video as opposed to mere text. 🙂
