Many of us fall asleep with our iPhone. Throw down the Instagram ribbon before bedtime and put the smartphone on the bedside table. In the morning without looking to turn off one of the alarms that worked.
And if Apple started a struggle with dependence on social networks , then the company is unlikely to be able to do something with the habit of putting a smartphone next to a pillow. Meanwhile, this habit can be very expensive for your body.
We tell why during sleep you need to put the phone away from your head.
International Agency for the Study of Cancer warns: mobile phones can be dangerous
The electromagnetic radiation of the radio frequency range generated by the smartphone, a person does not see and does not feel and that is why he does not consider it necessary to warn against the dangerous effects of this radiation.
However, cellular and wireless Internet systems create background electromagnetic radiation that inhibits the nervous and endocrine systems of humans.
At the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), scientists have long concluded that using a mobile phone may increase the risk of developing some types of brain tumors.
In a huge collection of studies cites the facts that mobile devices are not as harmless as manufacturers and laboratories issuing security certificates claim.
Thus, in one of the treatises, trends in terms of newly diagnosed cases of brain cancer in England from 1998 to 2007 were examined . The overall incidence of brain cancer in men or women, or in any particular age group, was not increased.
But here, the frequency of tumors of the temporal lobe increased from 1998 to 2007. That is, during the wide distribution of mobile phones among the population.
The location of the smartphone may affect the development of diseases. Hm
For the analysis of cases, a body of data from seven European INTERPHONE countries (Denmark, Finland, Germany, Italy, Norway, Sweden and south-east England) was used.
A study of radio frequency electromagnetic fields was carried out by estimating the total cumulative dose of specific energy (TCSE) for each person. For each case, the location of the tumor was determined by neuroradiologists, and the center of the tumor was evaluated by a computer algorithm or directly by a neuroradiologist.
For each case, the midpoint of the tumor on the three-dimensional grid was determined on the basis of radiological images.
According to the results of the study, it became clear that mobile phone users had an increased chance of malignant brain tumors and astrocytoma development when using mobile phones on one side of the head.
Simply put, if your smartphone is at night on the right side (that’s exactly the statistics), then the risk of a tumor appears on the right.
In Japan, scientists studied a series of cases of acoustic neuroma diagnosed between 2000 and 2006. In general, there was no excessive risk of acoustic neuroma among all mobile phone users.
However, among some subgroups, namely those that have the longest daily calls, high-risk ratios were evaluated.
In other words, the more often you talk on a mobile phone, the more chances you have to get in the risk zone.
Someone might just be lying. But it is not exactly
Direct threatening evidence in the material is not given. It would seem possible to diverge. But!
But a curious point is the fact that he led a working group to study the effects of electromagnetic radio frequencies, one Anders Ahlbom.
The senior lecturer at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, Anders Ahlbom, has been a telecommunications lobbyist since the 1990s . He actively participated in setting inconsistent ICNIRP standards for radiation from various sources, such as wireless devices and cellular towers.
For several years, Anders has noted that cell phones are unlikely to lead to tumors. In a variety of interviews, he stated – “We have no reason to believe that such risks will be.” Thus, he became a favorite in industry and government, who seek to calm the alarming public.
Another Swedish scientist, Lennart Hardell, openly confronted Anders. He linked the no-health risk claims with direct contact with Anders and telecommunications companies.
He was also supported by the journalist Mona Nisson. In her report, she cited direct evidence of Anders’s connection with interested companies.
The lie has been revealed. New requirements of scientists
In 2017, the Swedish Public Health Agency (Folkhälsomyndigheten) published a report that contained a section on EMF health risks written by Anders Albom and Maria Feuchting.
This report roughly falsifies the available scientific data. According to the document, over the past 15 years, their statements and reports have invariably been biased in relation to interest in telecommunications, IT and electricity.
In 2018, 236 independent scientists signed a request to consider obsolete ICNIRP standards that are insufficient to protect human health. Among the signatories were also 5 Russian scientists.
Their independent conclusion contrasts sharply with the report of Anders Album and Maria Feyching.“ Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels far exceeding most international and national guidelines.
Effects include an increased risk of cancer, cell stress, an increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damage, structural and functional changes in the reproductive system, a lack of learning and memory, neurological disorders, and a negative effect on overall well-being in humans. “.
In general, one should not trust the controversial studies seven years ago, the authors of which were not clean-handed people. It is obvious that the telecommunications market will hide any negative reports, so as not to frighten their customers. What would it cost the market.
Therefore, one way out – be careful, take care of your health and put the phone away from the pillow. This is at least a little bit, but it will protect against the additional risk of waking up one fine day with a tumor in the head.
