Are you aware of the fact that you are risking your life for the sake of a check-in or a like? In the past, we have been using our mobile phones to search and send SMS, but nowadays we cannot deny that our mobile phones are like a part of our body. In particular we use mobile phones to expand our social network, save time and follow the world. However, as the number of developing technologies and usage increases, these instruments, which we attach to even more, negatively affect our health and our quality of life.
Most of us carry our phones in our pockets, or in our hands. And many of us believe that this important blessing of technology has no harm to us. However, the researches show the contrary. The vibrations and waves of mobile phones have damages on the brain. The work carried out on this issue supports it and in consequence reveals the results. Scientists and researchers are discussing the potential danger of radio waves radiated by radio-frequency energy or mobile phones. Radiation energy is collected in two groups: ionized radiation such as X-ray and non-ionizing radiation like radio frequency and very low frequency. It is unfortunately proven that the ionized radiation that mobile phones have increases the risk of cancer.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned against an increase in glioma, a form of brain cancer, because of the fact that the mobile phone is held so close to the body for long times.
Neurology Specialist state that technologic developments bring comfort and pleasure to our lives on one hand, but on the other side they threaten our health seriously. We are surrounded by many electromagnetic waves. Radio and television waves, wireless waves, and most importantly, mobile phone frequency waves are constantly affecting our health.
Especially when mobile phones are in use, these waves are becoming more intense. Thus, when talking with a cell phone or messaging, the signals are becoming more and more intrusive, and as a result our brain damage is increasing. The psychological diseases such as panic attack, depression and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) have shown an abnormal increase in organic brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease in our time. Mobile phones and brain Tumors have not yet established a concrete connection. However, at least the brain tumor, such as glioma or meningioma is thought to form due to the harmful waves of the mobile phones. According to a research about the effects of the cell phone on the formation of brain cancer, it is released that people working on Wall Street and talking on the mobile phone-speaking for hours tend to have brain tumors much more than the others.
There are even scientists who say mobile phones are as harmful as cigarettes. Henry Lai, a bioengineer at the University of Washington, says cell phone signals break down the physiological structure of the DNA helix and lead to ruptures. According to a report published by the Institute of International Cancer Research in 2008, 40 percent more brain tumors are detected in people who use mobile phones for 10 years or more.
According to a survey between 200 doctors and nurses, 95 percent of the phones carry bacteria, which can lead to serious illnesses that can lead to death from simple skin irritations. These are also the risks of contagious diseases from the hands of doctors and nurses.
Apart from these diseases, the psychological effects of mobile phone usage, which is almost a passion, are also quite high. Social media sharings which are constantly watched on the internet, waiting for your sharings to be liked, following the lives of many people who are not familiar to you, and getting a giggle to socialize even though the name is social… Think about the last night you went out with your friends. How many people were there looking at the screens of their smart phones?
Despite the fact that this is not a struggle to stay alive, do not ignore the possibility of your mobile phones risking your life quality.
How can we protect ourselves from a mobile phone? Do not forget to close your mobile phone at nights. Cut off the cellular data network when you are not using the internet. Do not carry your phone in your pocket. Hold it in the side of your hand or sports bag. Never use headphones. If you do not have an earphone, be careful to talk to the speaker. Do not exceed 30 minutes per day in your negotiations. Use landlines as much as possible. Do not keep mobile phones and other electronic devices in your bedroom.
