Cellular Phones and Cancer
The fact: Microwaves (cellular phones) cause DNA damage.
How cellular phones influence human body and how cancer (brain tumor) begins.
1.) What are microwaves?
Microwaves are a form of electromagnetic energy, like light waves or radio waves, and occupy a part of the electromagnetic spectrum of power, or energy. Microwaves are very short waves of electromagnetic energy that travel at the speed of light (186,282 miles per second). In our modern technological age, microwaves are used to relay long distance telephone signals, television programs, and computer information across the earth or to a satellite in space. But the microwave is most familiar to us as an energy source for cooking food. In simpler terms, a microwave oven decays and changes the molecular structure of the food by the process of radiation. Frequencies from 1-30 GHz are usually called "microwave".
A microwave oven uses microwaves to heat food. Microwaves are radio waves. In the case of microwave ovens, the commonly used radio wave frequency is roughly 2,500 megahertz (2.5 gigahertz). Radio waves in this frequency range have an interesting property: they are absorbed by water, fats and sugars. When they are absorbed they are converted directly into atomic motion - heat. Microwaves in this frequency range have another interesting property: they are not absorbed by most plastics, glass or ceramics. Metal reflects microwaves, which is why metal pans do not work well in a microwave oven.
Many cellular phones have two signal strengths: 0.6 watts and 5 watts (for comparison, most CB radios transmit at 4 watts). The base station is also transmitting at low power. Microwaves ovens have 500 watts to 1.1k watts.
Above is a comparison of radiation of cellular phones and microwave ovens:
It may seem that mobile phones cause negligible radiation in comparison to microwave ovens but a simple calculation will show you the opposite. If you talk on the cellular phone just one hour a day the whole radiation is as follows:
10.000 watts radiation of cellular phone (ten times more powerfull than microwaves ovens) is as if you would put your head in a microwaves oven.You can imagine what would happen to you - you would burn like a sausage.
Cell phone can do biological damage through heating effects. This causes: headaches, earaches, blurring of vision, short-term memory loss, numbing, tingling, and burning sensations, bad sleep.
Well know fact is that if you talk on cellular phone more than 20 min. your brain temperature raises for up to 2 degrees.Look at the chart below:

From the work of Dr. Om Gandhi, a computer-image comparison of the heads of adults and children ( all adjusted to the same scale ), showing theat radiation penetrates younger skulls far more deeply than those of adults.
2.) What are the scientific facts:
Dr Henry Lai and Dr N. P. Singh tested in labs that radiation changed brain cell membranes in the rats and the effects are so severe that it could affect humans, too.
Research by other scientists indicates that prolonged use of cellular phones may cause hot-spots to develop inside the brain, causing damage which could lead to Alzheimer’s disease or cancer.
Recent research has shown that GSM pulse-modulated radiation can cause various physiological effects, such as alteration of the calcium balance in the nerve tissue of rats and also inhibition of cell growth in the human amniotic epithelium. Changes in the EEG pattern have also been observed. These subclinical effects do not always have to lead to disease but do call for alertness. It is assumed that GSM has no mutagenic characteristics (investigated in yeast cells) but can further the development of tumors (in rats).
Single and double strand DNA breaks in brain cells increased after exposure to microwaves. Exposure to both continuous wave and pulsed microwaves produced DNA damage. Double strand breaks, if not repaired, are known to lead to cell death
Researchers at the Royal Adelaide Hospital in Australia discovered earlier this year that the electromagnetic field that surrounds electrical appliances can be positively linked to development of cancer in mice (or negatively linked, if you look at it the mouse’s point of view).
Exposure to emissions from (cellular phones) mobile phones (both continuous wave and pulsed microwave RF) can disable a blood-brain-barrier and allow proteins and toxins to leak into the brain. This can increase the chances of developing diseases such as Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson's.
RF (radio frec.) similar to digital mobile telephones reduced REM sleep and altered the EEG (brain wave) signal during REM sleep. REM sleep is essential for information processing in the brain for learning and memory functions.
In 1991, there was a lawsuit in Oklahoma concerning the hospital use of a microwave oven to warm blood needed in a transfusion. The case involved a hip surgery patient, Norma Levitt, who died from a simple blood transfusion. It seems the nurse had warmed the blood in a microwave oven. This tragedy makes it very apparent that there's much more to "heating" with microwaves than we've been led to believe. Blood for transfusions is routinely warmed, but not in microwave ovens. In the case of Mrs. Levitt, the microwaving altered the blood and it killed her
3.)Cellular phones are unsafe so how does brain tumor begin?
A diagnosis of cancer can be devastating. And there is good reason for this fear -- Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States next to heart disease, and will claim more than half a million lives this year. What we think of as "Cancer" is actually a group of more than one hundred separate diseases. These diseases are all characterized by an abnormal and unregulated growth of cells. This growth destroys surrounding body tissues and may spread to other parts of the body in a process that is known as metastasis. You have probably heard of all kind of different types of cancer,but we focus on BRAIN CANCER (brain tumor):
Cancer can develop anywhere in the body, and at any age. Cancer is usually caused by genetic damage that happens inside an individual cell.
When cells divide at an accelerated rate, they often begin to form a mass of tissue called a tumor. The tumor is fed by nutrients that diffuse through neighboring blood vessels and can also grow by forming a substance called tumor angiogenesis (vessel forming) factor. This factor stimulates the growth of an independent blood supply to the tumor. Tumors can cause destruction in three common ways:-Tumors put pressure on nearby tissues and/or organs..
- Tumors invade tissues and organs directly (direct extension), often damaging or disabling them in the process.
- Tumors make invaded tissues and/or organs susceptible to infection.
- Tumors can also release substances that destroy tissues in close proximity to them.
4.)What Causes Cancer (brain tumor)?
Mutations in tumor suppressor genes are another common cause of cancer. As you might expect, a tumor suppressor gene is supposed to prevent tumors. But when these genes are damaged, they can allow cancer to develop instead of preventing it. One of these genes, p53, normally prevents cells with abnormal DNA from surviving. When p53 is defective, these cells with abnormal DNA survive and can multiply, increasing the probability of developing cancer (brain tumor).
Simple image here shows how the brain tumor starts:
