Are Cell Phones a Cancer Risk?

I have been getting a lot of questions from my patients and my online audience about cell phone use and the risk of cancer.  Without diving into the research, I had always hypothesized that it would because the electromagnetic frequencies (EMF’s) coming from cell phones are a very new stress on our system that the human species has never had a chance to adapt too.

I have never “felt good” when I have been on my cell phone for long periods of time, even though I use a holographic chip on my cell phone and in my house.   I do my best to reduce my exposure when possible.  My friend Lloyd Burrell sent me this great narrative on a recent study discussing this topic.


Cell Phone Use and the Risk of Cancer

Cell phones are multifunctional devices of convenience; working as a radio, navigation device, communication tool, information provider, entertainment hub, alarm clock, planner, camera and the list goes on. Using cell phones doesn’t go by without a price to pay though.

Use of cell phones and other similar devices means we are exposed to radio frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs). More and more studies are finding a link between these exposures and many serious diseases including cancer.

Dr. Andreas Stang from the University of Essen, Germany recently lead a study that found cell phone radiation to be a potential cause for uveal melanoma, a rare type of eye cancer (1). The study was carried out on 118 male and female participants who all had uveal melanoma and an experiment with over 475 controls was carried out.

The study showed that the risk of eye cancer to be higher for individuals who use cell phones on a regular basis.

Cell Phone Radiation Changes DNA

The human body functions on the reproduction of new cells to substitute old, dying cells. Cancer is what happens when abnormal cells begin to reproduce and take over tissues in the body. It is already established that human bodies exposed to constant radiation – cell phone radiation included – can bring about changes in the DNA structure of the cells.

This mutation results in a dysfunctional cell growth rate and division, meaning that old cells do not die when they are supposed to and new cells aren’t being produced. Thus begins the formation of a cancerous growth in the body.


Studies Link EMFs to Major Disorders

Uveal melanoma and eye cancer aren’t the only risks from cell phone radiation. Brain tumors such as acoustic neuroma are an increasingly common outcome, not surprising when you consider how cell phones are held close to the head when speaking. Besides brain cancer studies link cell phone radiation to cancer of the pituitary gland, thyroid, lymph node, breast, kidney, liver, prostate and skin.

Germany’s telecommunications provider, T-Mobile conducted an independent study to understand the outcome of using wireless telecommunications. They concluded that “a multitude of studies found a type of damage from high frequency EMFs which is important for cancer initiation and cancer promotion (2).”

Not just cancer, studies also link these EMF exposures to a growing number of neurological conditions and autoimmune diseases.

Reducing Risks

Protecting ourselves from overexposure of EMFs is something we can do to lessen our chances of getting cancer. Some useful tips to follow are:


Cell Phone Radiation Cancer Time Bomb

As scientist Dr. Martin Blank comments “cancers do not form overnight”. In almost all cases cancerous tumors take many years to form and metastasize”. The fear is that cancers of the brain and of the head could reach epidemic proportions within the next decade. This would suggest that we might be sitting on a cell phone radiation cancer time bomb.

We humans have sacrificed health among other things for the sake of convenience. It’s time we ask ourselves, is it really worth it?
