Cell Phone Radiation The Whole Term Paper


Further, other researchers are coming up with more disturbing reports that indicate possible health implications of cell phone use. There are a number of illnesses and ailments that are associated with cell phone radiation; these include cancer, brain tumors, alzheimer's, parkinson's, fatigue, headaches, sleep disruptions, altered memory function, poor concentration and spatial awareness, and pacemaker disruptions (Mercola, n.d.). Despite the low intensity of cell phone radiation, the similarity between certain electrochemical activities within the human body and this microwave radiation gives enough reason to worry. The human body is essentially an electromagnetic instrument which is very sensitive under the control of highly complex and orderly oscillatory electrical processes. Each one of these electro-biological processes experience vibration at definite frequency with some being close to the frequencies used in modern cell phone technology. It is therefore possible for the low-intensity microwaves from the cell phones to cause considerable non-thermal influence on human biology thus apart from the intensity, these microwaves have other properties that are significant. The biological activities that are affected by the cell phone radiations are influenced by the body metabolism of an individual which brings a difference on the effect of the radiation from one individual to another. The other factor that can bring this difference is the type of cell phone used since cell phones emit radiations with different frequencies. How an individual can be affected by non-thermal electromagnetic influence is demonstrated by the ability of a flashing light to induce seizures in people with photosensitive epilepsy. It has to be noted in this case that the seizure is not just caused by the energy absorption but rather by the recognition of the information being transmitted through the pulsating light by the brain. This is so because the frequency used by the brain matches that of the transmitted information. Since there is more proof that cell phone radiation can affect human health than for the contrary it is important that safety measures are...


There have been a number of recommendations on how to reduce the exposure to cell phone radiation such as use of headset which helps increase the distance between the user and the phone which is believed reduces radiation, this has however caused debate. Some other common recommendations include limiting time spent on the phone, using speakerphone, using non-bluetooth or wired headset, limiting calls inside buildings, using phones in open spaces as often as possible, and limiting the use of phones by children and preadolescents.

Non-Ionizating Radiation In recent years mobile telecommunication has developed to a large extent. It has been able to gain a place of importance in society. Encouraged on the basis of these developments the society on the whole is facing a humongous alteration. Now it is possible to access any individual in any part of the world where telecommunication has spread its roots. The latest technologies actually let us now to transfer

Motorola- International Business Motorola, since it first entered the electronic market as the world leader in the field of communication technology using mobile phones, has up until today maintained its status as a leader in the manufacture of mobile phones, pagers, microchips that can be used in computers as well as for other purposes, and automotive semi-conductors. Though Motorola has indeed been facing stiff competition from the Japanese, and it has

D.). Despite the fact that full body scanners may be the most technologically advanced equipment we could realistically put in an airport, they still have their shortcomings. Full body scanners can't see inside your body. Generally, the machines also can't find items stashed in a body cavity. This means that a determined terrorist could potentially store bomb materials or weapons inside their body, specifically in their anus. Since such a low

With the depletion of the ozone, there results global warming and also the ultraviolet rays affect the skin and eyes. There is money in recycling waste. Within BC, homes, hospitals and many other institutions there are bound to be some items that are left to lie without use for years. These might just one day end up in the dumpsites. Cell phones, ink cartridges, broken refrigerators, broken down cars etc.

Six weeks after the event, I have been mandated with the responsibility of supervising a team that will return to the hospital since I am an Industrial Hygienist. This team will also be responsible for evaluating the situation and engaging in a plan to re-establish basic medical

This has been the traditionally used mode of treatment for non-Hodgkin's Lymphomas, but the fact remains that there have not been many clinical trials conducted that would reveal the benefits of CHOP in comparison to various other chemotherapy options for the treatment of CLL, which is a very slowly growing form of cancer and is therefore conversely very difficult to treat and cure because of the fact that all
