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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
Supposing that radiation is bad for us (cell phones, microwaves, computers etc) why do doctors give it to cancer patients?
You're deceived: You're an adult and you need to learn to tell the truth from obvious lies. Internet claims that cell phones, computers, and microwaves are causing massive harm by exposing us to deadly radiation are ugly lies told by people who are trying to sell you something. If it were true, do you think spymasters -- the world's foremost truth-gatherers -- would use cell phones? Wise up ; stop being scared. ...Read more
Is the microwave totally safe?
since it's a radiation so I'm afraid that it may cause cancer or something
Yes: As long as you are on the outside and looking in, a microwave is very safe. ...Read more
Does a microwave let out enough radiation to eventually cause cancer? From where on the microwave does the most radiation come out when microwaves on?
It just doesn't: Microwaves produced wavelengths of radiation that don't damage the genes, which must happen to cause cancer. Everything gives off radiation -- light, your own body warmth, and dangerous x-rays. There are many types and most are harmless. The world is full of crooks posing as humanitarians, and you need to be discerning. Thanks for your question. ...Read more
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 microwaves' radiation cause cancer? I have a very old one (over 20 years old). Can it cause cancer? Is it safe to be near a "running microwave"?
Probably not but...: Some microwave radiation can leak from microwave ovens, esp. if the door isn't fully sealed, which is more likely in older ovens. However, this radiation is not proven to cause cancer. Standing several yards from a running microwave will minimize exposure. I'm more concerned about the controversial potential hazards of eating microwaved food so I usually avoid it. See http://tinyurl.com/nsh36ks ...Read more
If an old microwave leaks radiation, can it cause cancer? I have been using an old microwave (over 20 years old) for almost 16 years. It might leak.
Noooo!: The radiation generated by the klystron tube is in a very tiny range which is the rotational frequency of water molecules. Hence it warms up food containing water. Dehydrated food does not warm up in a microwave oven! Radar works in same general range. Ionizing (X) radiation can lead to cancer because it can break chemical bonds and mess up things at a fundamental chemical level. Review your chemi ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
This is light of extremely short wavelengths typically produced either among the stars / in cosmic rays or by radioactive element decay. Gamma rays form the background of normal radiation in which we all live; it is substantially greater than the exposure we get from imaging scans or should get from ...Read more
