your brain on cell phones...

Do You Think Your Cell Phone Isn't Frying Your Brain? Better Think Again!

Need a cooker? Use your cell phone

Many organizations including the cell phone industry often downplay the risk of cell phone radiation to the brain. Results from short-term studies were used to convince consumers that use of a cell phone is not associated with brain tumors or cancer, which only develop decades after exposure.

To be fair, no one knows exactly how much harm a cell phone can do to a person. However, one thing for sure is that the radiation from a cell phone is harmful. It is only a matter of how much. There is no denying that.

Recently, new media has reported a study showing the radiation from cell phones is so full of energy they can be used to cook eggs.

In the experiment, researchers placed one egg in a porcelain cup (because it is easy to conduct heat), and put one cell phone on one side and another cell phone on the other. The researchers then called from one cell phone to another and kept the cell phones on after connecting.

During the first 15 minutes, nothing changed. After 25 minutes, however, the egg shell started to become hot and at 40 minutes, the surface of the egg became hard and bristled. Researchers found the protein in the egg had become solid although the egg yolk was still in liquid form. After 65 minutes, the whole egg was well cooked.

The study shows how scary cell phone radiation is. People should try to avoid use of cell phones. Although so far no one has proved the radiation from cell phones can cause something clinically significant. By the same token, there has been no one who can disprove the existence of such a risk.

Children should be forbidden from cell phone use because they still grow their brains and are particularly vulnerable to radiation.

Dying To Talk!
02 Jul 2006
Mainstream Media has once again, failed us. All for Corporate profits.
I owned a cell phone for 2 months. Cancelled my one year contract. Ate the surcharge. Why? My phone would heat up after five minutes. I read about the microwave effect of the brain. And I knew, that I didn't want to have a tumor or rare brain cancer, from the microwave transmission.
Now I warn my friends. They ignore me. Too bad for them.
Read the link above. You can fry an egg with a cell phone! Don't take long.
Imagine your brain?!?
