A new study has identified health risks from wireless devices such as smartphones and tablets.
The results of a new study have now been released in a report that is now cautioning the users of mobile technology that the health risks may be worse than they think, and that these risks are becoming more powerful
The report said that using smartphones and tablets is not as healthy as had been thought and that immediate action is needed.
This mobile technology study was conducted by the BioInitiative Working Group, and its report was based on an analysis of the studies that have been conducted on the subject from 2012 through to this year. What they found was that the more recent studies have shown increased medical concerns regarding the increased risk of malignant brain tumors as a result of the use of cell phones.
This mobile technology analysis conflicts with other single studies that have recently been conducted.
However, this research takes several studies into account, not just one. According to Lennart Hardell, from Sweden’s Orebro University, “There is a consistent pattern of increased risk for glioma (a malignant brain tumour) and acoustic neuroma with use of mobile and cordless phones.” He also went on to point out that epidemiological evidence has suggested that radiofrequency should be considered to be a carcinogen among humans. Hardell stated that the current ICNIRP and FCC/IEEE public safety limits are not provide adequate protection for public health.
The report from BioInitiative showed that 68 percent of the studies that had been conducted on radiofrequency radiation (which means 144 studies out of the total 211) indicated that there was a connection between that tech and nervous system effects.
Moreover, within 90 percent of the 105 studies that were available in 2014, it was shown that very low frequency radiation had effects on the nervous system. In 74 out of the 114 studies (65 percent) it was shown that radiofrequency radiation could cause damage to DNA, in the extremely low frequency wireless and mobile technology studies. These devices can range from phones to tablets and are – according to the report – leading to unnecessary physical and mental stress that will gradually resilience.
