How Cell Phones in Your Bra Expose You to Cancer Risk
How Does Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Radiation from Cell Phones Affect Your Health?
The connection between your phone and cancer is a complex one. This article discusses how radiation from cell phones can affect your health and expose you to cancer risk.
Some recent studies have shown that the use of cell phones may increase your risk for developing brain tumors or other forms of cancer in the long run.
In 2012, 8.2 million people were diagnosed with cancer and 14.1 million new cases were reported worldwide. Globally, the most commonly diagnosed cancers are those of the lung (13%), breast (11%), and colorectum (10%). The most common causes of cancer death were lung (1,600,000 cases or 19.4% of all cancer deaths), liver (0.8 million cases or 9.1% of all cancer deaths), and stomach (0.7 million cases or 8.8%)
Cell phones emit low-intensity radiofrequency waves, which can be absorbed by tissues in our bodies and bring about many health problems if they are exposed to them for a long time. Radiofrequency waves are part of the non-ionising section of the electromagnetic spectrum. It is considered an electromagnetic field (EMF).
What Are the Risks of Having a Cell Phone in Your Bra?
Breast cancer risk is usually associated with a family history or a genetic disposition. It usually doesn’t occur in women under 40 years old. It’s important to get to the root of why this cancer is happening and keep an eye out for other possible exposures or environmental risks.
A recent study reviewed the history of cell phone use of 4 young females aged between 21 and 39 who were diagnosed with breast cancer. All of the women regularly carried their smartphones on their breasts and developed tumours in the areas where their cell phones were located next to their bra. All individuals had carried their cell phone in the same position for 10 years, subsequently developing breast cancer.
How Do Smartphones Affect Breast Cancer Risk?
With the increase in technology and availability of electronic devices, we see a rise in the number of people who suffer from breast cancer. There are several studies that have linked increased exposure to EMF radiation from these devices to an increase in cancer risk.
Smart phones and cell phones contain multiple radiofrequency antennas. These are GSM/LTE antennas using multiple frequencies, wifi and bluetooth antennas. They all continuously transmit radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RF EMR).
How to Reduce Radiation Exposure From Your Wireless Devices by Turning Off WiFi/Bluetooth/Cellular Network Connection
When using a wireless device while in a public place, there are steps you can take to reduce your exposure to radiation. Here are some of the most important steps you should take.
Some devices have an airplane mode that will disable the radiofrequency transmitters. This means that your device will not connect to any network unless it is physically plugged into a network outlet. It is highly recommended that you use the airplane mode if possible.
If you cannot power off your wireless device, make sure you limit your usage as much as possible and put it away unused when not in use.
For cell phones, place them in airplane mode so they’ll stop automatically trying to connect to other networks, redirecting all phone calls to VOIP apps like Skype.
Avoid sleeping with your cell phone next to your bed or under your pillow.
Conclusion: Get a separate device for safety and reduce health risks from Wi-Fi radiation
Take a precautionary approach to the use of any wireless device. Avoid carrying the cell phone in or near your bra. Avoid carrying it near your body. Keep it in airplane mode when not in use.
