Are You Frying Your Brain With Your Cell
There are approximately 2.5 billion cell phones currently in
use around the world and over 1.3 million base station
antennas. Every time you use a cell phone you are putting a
mini-microwave transmitter next to your
That's right, a mini microwave.
In fact, there is a popular yet disturbing UTube video showing
three cell phones pointing at 5 kernels of popcorn, which all
pop when the phones ring simultaneously. So
how is your cell phone affecting your brain?
Recently, Henry Lai, a bioengineering professor at the
University of Washington in Seattle, showed that the
oscillating frequencies from cell phones cause the DNA in the
brain cells of rats to break down due to the formation of free
This effect can be linked to Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Cancer
and many other illnesses and diseases.
The proliferation of cell phone use among younger teens causes
even more concern. Since a young person's brain is still
developing and their skulls are thinner than adults, they are
more susceptible to the effects of electromagnetic radiation.
There is a definite risk of causing permanent alteration to
Dr. Robert Becker, an orthopedic surgeon and the author of “The
Body Electric” and “Cross Currents”, studied the effects of
electricity on life forms with an eye towards using electrical
currents to regenerate growth of bone and
As a result of his discoveries concerning the amazing response
of living tissue to even the smallest electrical and/or
magnetic fields, Dr. Becker spent years trying to warn those in
power about the dangers of electromagnetic
Dr. Becker believes there are two biological effects of
electromagnetic radiation on living systems. The first is
malignancies in growth and development processes in the body.
Problems in these processes can lead to certain cancers, which
are caused by cells growing out of control.
The second effect is in the central nervous system and the
brain. "There are definitive effects of low strength

sensational claims was not forthcoming.

exposure to such radiation may cause cancer and many
other illnesses, as it breaks down the immune system.
Low-level microwave radiation such as cell phones, and
radar towers poses another danger, he compellingly shows,

According to Dr. Becker, the magnetic field strength of
communication frequencies is very low, but the problem is their
oscillating nature. Compared to the slight change of the
Earth's field as the sun goes up and down, these
frequency-dependent fields fluctuate wildly. "As far as I'm
concerned, these factors do have biological effects. I think
that the overwhelming evidence indicates that happens," says
addition to the long-term health concerns, buying a house
with high fields is an economic disaster. In a few years,
when power line radiation is as well known as asbestos
and radon, a house with high fields will be practically
impossible to sell. Already there are hundreds of
lawsuits regarding EMFs and property
An article from the December 2006 issue of Ode magazine, had
this to say about cell phones: "Cell phones and other
wireless technologies use higher radio frequencies on the
electromagnetic spectrum, including the microwave band. The
higher the frequency, the shorter the wavelength. The shorter
the wavelength, the more easily the body absorbs the energy and
the more likely the biological effects."
