UK report shows no link between mobile phone signals and health related side effects

Conclusions from a study conducted in the UK on the health impact of using mobile telephones were released today. The Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research Programme (MTHR) undertook the study as part of its 2007 report.

The study concluded that there was no evidence linking short-term mobile phone use to brain cancer. Tests performed on volunteers in the study showed that brain function was not affected by mobile phone signals or signals used by emergency agencies. The MTHR says that the results are definitive enough that no further research is needed into this area.

Part of the study included what is called the largest and most robust study of electrical hypersensitivity undertaken anywhere in the world. No evidence was found that any unpleasant symptoms experienced by sufferers are a result of exposure to mobile phone signals or from cellular towers.

Further results in the study showed after investigation that mobile phones have no affect on cells other than heating them. Longer-term exposure to mobile phone signals still warrants more research in the opinion of the study because a limited number of study participants had used a mobile phone for more than 10 years.

Further studies by the MTHR also confirmed that the use of mobile phones while driving using hands-free devices or simply holding the phone caused no more impairment on the part of the driver than any other in-car distractions.

^--- bingo!

In other words, as long as it doesn't heat up the tissue, it's not hurting the tissue.

So does that mean it is hurting them?

When you are warmed by standing in a warm room are you hurt by it? No.

But since you want to have something to be afraid of so I will help you out. No you don't have to thank me! This is just my way of giving back to the community.

Here goes. If your body does not have adequate circulation to dissipate the heat generated from the RF radiation from the cell phone it will literally cook a portion of your head or brain! Never ever use a cell phone for more than five seconds! Unless that is on speaker phone. Afraid now? Good.

For you hard cases out there who are still not afraid. Vampires and werewolves are real. And there is one in the room with you right now!
