Can microwave radiation from cell phone tower cause cancer ?

Can microwave radiation from cell phone tower cause cancer ?

Not that we know: The radiation energy from a cell tower is very low unless you are on the tower at the antenna. The current controversy is whether cell phone itself can cause brain malignancy since they are held close to your head while they are being used. The jury is still out on the question but prudence suggests you use your cell phone on speaker or use a blue tooth ear piece which generates lower radio ener. ...Read more

Cancer (Definition)

Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more

Can cell phone radiation cause thyroid cancer?

Can cell phone radiation cause thyroid cancer?

No: There has not been any proof of electromagnetic waves given off of cell phones cause any type of cancer. The cancer most debated is brain cancer and no statistical cause is yet identified. ...Read more

Can radiation from a microwave oven cause cancer?

Can radiation from a microwave oven cause cancer?

Possible: Microwave ovan prodices electrmagnetic non ionizing radiation in huge quantity , built in such way not to leak.And cause cell damage , cataracts , immediate cell death or late effects like caner possible ( if it leaks ) by dna damage . It is also possible will break down products may be harmful to the body. ...Read more

Can the cell phone radiation exposure damage my brain all or kill any cells?

Can the cell phone radiation exposure damage my brain all or kill any cells?

No: It makes no sense biologically. The radiation isn't of the wavelengths that damage molecules, let alone kill cells. The studies that supposedly show harm are retrospective surveys that invite recall bias -- i.e., junk. Our high-tech age is difficult enough without this kind of fearmongering. You should at least enjoy its benefits. ...Read more

Can cell phones cause cancer?

No strong evidence: The studies out there show that there could be some risk of cell phone and development of glioma , but the evidence is not strong enough to confirm the link, and needs to be researched further. It is definitely raise a concern, but there is no conclusive relationship. So, use an ear piece and don't let / limit your children use cell phone. ...Read more

If phones emit non ionizing radiation which don't damage dna, why is there speculation on phones causing cancer?

Speculation: There are many speculations on things that have no evidence. I tell people to be curious and critical. Being curious and naive is not helpful to individuals or society. Ask for the data, not just headlines. ...Read more

How can ionizing radiation from nuclear explosions cause cancer?

How can ionizing radiation from nuclear explosions cause cancer?

Damaging genes: Inhaling or ingesting the radioactive particles that come from the explosing is also risky -- in fact, after chernobyl, most of the problems are thyroid concerns from the iodine. People in hiroshima and nagasaki had a significant rise especially in rates of leukemia, civilians exposed to tests had less cancers long-term than many had feared. ...Read more

Can cell phones cause cancer, brain tumors, etc?

Can cell phones cause cancer, brain tumors, etc?

Controversial: There is very little evidence that cell phone usage causes brain tumors. At least one large study in (i think) sweden suggested a slight increase in the frequency of tumors or the 8th (acoustic) nerve in high-use individuals, but showed no increase in other types of brain tumors, including gliomas. Other studies have not even supported that there are more 8th nerve tumors from cell phones. ...Read more

Can talking on cell phones cause brain tumors?

Can talking on cell phones cause brain tumors?

U.S. C.D.C. says...: In the last 15 years, hundreds of research studies have investigated whether health problems can be linked to cell phone use. Some of these studies have suggested the possibility that long-term, high cell phone use may be linked to certain types of brain cancer. These studies do not establish this link definitively. Scientists need to conduct more studies to learn more about this possible risk. ...Read more

Does MRI Radiation can be danger as Cell phone radiation since both work on electromagnetic?

Does MRI Radiation can be danger as Cell phone radiation since both work on electromagnetic?

Frequency is a key: issue because energy per photon correlates with the frequency of EMR. Study: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_radiation. Additionally, issue is not just EMR energy transmitted but absorbed (versus just passing through without apparent effect) combined with biologic responses, thus no one 100% understands. MRI (actually NMRI) uses intense magnetic fields & RF EMR, not ionizing like CT. ...Read more

Does microwave radiation to transmit voice cause esophageal cancer?

Does microwave radiation to transmit voice  cause esophageal cancer?

Not clearly: The present data doesn't suggest that the microwave spectrum used to transmit communications causes cancer. There is some suggestion of related male infertility but it isn't certain. Additionally there is something referred to as the microwave hearing effect where people exposed to pulsed microwave radiation hear clicking noises. ...Read more

Are any cancers yet linked to cell phone towers nearby?

Cancer clusters: And 'overhead' phenomenon are urban/suburban legend. No fact. The cell phone issue, linked to brain tumors, is equally ill-founded, but a national scientific body has breathed life by saying it is possible. Since "invisible waves" and x-rays are mysterious, despit very understandable scientific facts, some worry about theories. Fact: the waves coming ini are not ionizing or penetrating. ...Read more

Can heat radiation from your laptop/ laptop keyboard cause skin cancer on your hands?

Can heat radiation from your laptop/ laptop keyboard cause skin cancer on your hands?

None of these: This radiation is not of a wavelength capable of damaging the genes, which is what causes cancer. There are scare websites that will try to deceive you. They are crooks. Life is too difficult already without this. ...Read more

Can the hpv virus on skin killed by radiation? As radiation also can kill cancer cells? Possible or not?

Maybe/but why ?: HPV warts are relatively easy to eradicate by freezing, laser and or application of various chemicals. Why would anyone take the risks involved with radiation when less risky treatments are available ? Most infestations by HPV strains are removed by the immune system within 2-3 years. However, they can hide in your tissues and resurface on and off for years.Complete cure is not likely. ...Read more
