The Danger of Cell Phones to Breast Health

As you know, I’m all over the danger of cell phones, cordless phones, microwave ovens, and any device that emits radio frequency (RF).

This Fall, I was both a presenter and attendee at a summit on wireless technology in Washington, DC where I learned something about the dangers of cell phones and other wireless technology that I am compelled to share it with you. The information about the danger of cell phones is anecdotal so far, but it comes from reliable sources.  So I pass it along to you to make your own decision while we wait years or decades for research on the dangers of cell phones.

It was shocking news to me that many women apparently tuck their cell phones in their bras for convenience while they exercise or go about other aspects of daily life. With the emission of radiation from cell phones, the link between cell phones and breast health is very worrying and a real issues in women's health. Yikes!

Cell Phones and Breast Cancer

Doctors are now finding a rectangular pattern of nodules—many of them malignant—between the breasts of many unsuspecting women who have admitted to stashing their cell phones in their bras.

If you, or any woman you know, thinks that this mode of cell phone transportation is just a convenience, PLEASE warn them of the dangers of cell phones! Don’t wait for research to get funded—if it isn’t blocked by telecom companies—take action NOW to protect yourself from the danger of cell phones!

I also advise the same for men: never ever put your cell phone in your breast pocket, your jacket pocket, or your pants pockets (so close to the prostate). In fact, I am so adamant about the dangers of cell phones that no one should ever carry a cell phone on their body at all—the RF is just too strong. Instead carry it in a purse, brief case, or backpack. Plus, you never want to hold it near your head; it's far better to use a the speaker phone function to protect yourself from radiation from cell phones.

Now it’s your turn: Will these findings about the dangers of cell phones change your cell phone habits?
