The answer is simply yes cell phones tranmit thousands of radioactive sound waves every .1 of a second. They cause brain tumours that cant be prevented BUT THEY ALSO CANT BE CURED. Good riddens to all typers xx

If you already knew the answer, then why'd you ask the question?

Touche, Zman. Touche.

This guy has no clue what he is talking about, see my answer below. there is no evidence supporting any kind of cancer and cell phone use, and brain tumors can be cured, difficult but indeed possible. He also supports no evidence for his claim. and based on evidence out there, it is false.

umm brain tumours can be prevented and can be cured. My granny got one and they removed it.

about cellphones hurting you I don't think so because the DNA does not pickup the frequencies of the microwaves. Tumors appear because the DNA in your cells pick up elecromagnetic radiation and mutates. However the wavelengths need to be much much smaller in order for this to happen. Water does so you heat up a little but the energy is so extremely small it's negligible.

I would be more worried about cathode ray tube monitors because they emit a small amount of gamma rays.

I learned something today. CRTs really emit gamma? Is that at all safe?

Short answer, no. The water in cells is only heated a tiny amount.

YAY some one who knows the effect of microwave radiation!!!

(Oct 04 '11 at 15:00) trueb trueb's gravatar image

In my opinion, I don't think they are. Microwaves - the type of waves that mobile phones emit, have a similar wavelength to radio waves, and are not that powerful (compared to gamma radiation.)

Having said that, there is no proof that they are not damaging to us, and a study in the future could prove me wrong.

i'd be more worried about the aholes that think it is fine to drive and have the d*mn phone to their head, than i would be about the radiation from the phones. as far as i'm concerned when one of these aholes gets popped by the police the fine should be 1/10 their gross monthly wages.

Your point is valid, but people would take it far more seriously if you attempted to put it across in a more mature manner.

Just for once, try not using all bold, and try using proper language and structure. You'll see, more people will bother to read it, and more people might agree.

there is nothing wrong with the structure of my comment. you are the only one that seems to have a problem with it.

(Aug 03 '11 at 09:51) ChuckysChild ChuckysChild's gravatar image

I was simply aiming to give you some constructive criticism. Your point will be more acknowledged if you aim to use correct grammar and vocabulary.

However, if you don't care, then there is nothing more I will say, it's not hurting me.

tim again there is nothing wrong with the structure of my comment.

s I said, think what you wish. If you wish to be ignorant, then I shall leave you to it. It would be wise to learn to take advice in life once in a while though.

tim i'm not the one in the wrong here. over half the people on the net a person has to decipher what they mean. in my post that is not the case. i really do not know what your problem is, but keep it to yourself.

(Aug 03 '11 at 13:34) ChuckysChild ChuckysChild's gravatar image

My problem is that you refuse to take constructive criticism. My point was that if you were to structure your argument in a different way people might regard it for what it is. I said your argument was valid, but I felt the way you put it across oculd have been better.

Rather than going on the defensive, listen to what people have to say, it might help you one day.

agreed. Stop being so pointy about pugs and shit. If it's understandable then by all means. Many times your 'correct' english is actually harder to understand because you include strange words, many times just to sound more educated.

I am worried about brain tumours, but I don't use my phone that much.xx. I know that u can buy things 2 put on ur phone that stops most radiation.

didn't you read my post? Microwaves does not affect your DNA. You cannot possibly get cancer from mobile phone radiation because it's not ionising.

u think ur so cool Yarvaxea. This is a free post/opinion site so u cant talk.and brain tumours aren't related to dna. so good luck with ur sciencing business

(Aug 03 '11 at 04:08) NaNaLuvsJacinta NaNaLuvsJacinta's gravatar image

but that's obviously because I am! Brain tumors appear because of cancer that appears when the DNA duplication gets messed with. As it does when gamma rays starts shaking the strings making them miss some of the pairs and change. However the wavelength of a microwave is far bigger than the DNA string therefore it just passes through it. Gamma rays on the other hand are small enough to shake the DNA strings making the duplications slightly altered, and that 'can' cause cancer. Mostly the cell just dies but sometimes it starts to replicate at an alarming rate, making a tumor which has to be surgically removed.

NaNaLuvsJacint: You're comment makes no sense?

You ask a question, which you then answer yourself.

Multiple people then contest that, and you accuse them of not allowing you to have opinions.

Whilst this may be an opinion based site, when you ask a question that can be answered only by facts, you can't get angry when you get proven wrong.

umm... yea cancer causes tumors, cancer is caused by damage to DNA.. so yea your wrong... hate to break it to you.

sense you're not making :O What is a tumor caused by? DING! Cancer! What is cancer caused by? DING! modification to your DNA! Does microwave affect your DNA? DING! NO because it's wavelength is too big!

cell phones transmit thousands of radioactive sound waves every .1 of a second.

Cellphones only emit a few high frequency waves and it is 1000s of CYCLES every .000001 of a second as they waves are in the GHz range.

Sound waves are not radioactive, sound waves are pressure waves, only way a sound wave is radioactive is if it contains ionized radioactive particles suspended in the air. A cell phone gives off Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR), not as bad as ionizing radiation. Electromagnetic radiation is the same kind of radiation that allows you to see, light, or listen to the radio. where as Radon, Uranium, Plutonium or even Carbon are ionizing radiation in their unstable states. EMR can become ionizing when they reach the gamma ray stature

In the late 90s and early 00's cellphones where linked to brain cancer, but not the EMR, it was the kind of screens they where using.

but what about more recently? http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Risk/cellphones (Reviewed Aug 16, 2011)

although many studies have examined the potential health effects of non-ionizing radiation from radar, microwave ovens, and other sources, there is currently no consistent evidence that non-ionizing radiation increases cancer risk

The only known biological effect of radiofrequency [EMR] energy is heating. The ability of microwave ovens to heat food is one example of this effect of radiofrequency [EMR] energy.

A recent study showed that when people used a cell phone for 50 minutes, brain tissues on the same side of the head as the phone’s antenna metabolized more glucose than did tissues on the opposite side of the brain (2). The researchers noted that the results are preliminary, and possible health outcomes from this increase in glucose metabolism are still unknown.

Although there have been some concerns that radiofrequency energy from cell phones held closely to the head may affect the brain and other tissues, to date there is no evidence from studies of cells, animals, or humans that radiofrequency energy can cause cancer.

It is generally accepted that damage to DNA is necessary for cancer to develop. However, radiofrequency energy, unlike ionizing radiation, does not cause DNA damage in cells

(Part 5 is worth a look but I wont copy it over)

Scientific America says "In other words, the verdict is still out." on November 21, 2008 in "Fact or Fiction?: Cell Phones Can Cause Brain Cancer"

The Washington Post agrees with the above story on June 3rd of 2011 in "Do cellphones cause cancer? Unclear. But science proves they’re annoying."

So what lessons should we take away

Do your research and don't listen blindly to what the media says, if they had their way we all would be in aluminum covers helmets in the middle of the deep woods scaring us shirtless (because the cloth used to make clothes cause cancer too) using mud to avoid sunburn (which is linked to skin cancer) because sunscreen is toxic.

I have offered a lot of evidence to support my claims and have cited them adequately, where do you get your information? every CREDIBLE source I find says in a nutshell, "We don't know yet."
