Do you believe that cell phones are dangerous given the fact that a cell phone is a microwave transmitter?

Everything is actually dangerous, come to think of it. Pencils have lead tips. Batteries have strong chemicals in them and the list goes on. However, do we stop using them? Absolutely not! I guess we should just be careful when using these things and make sure that we read the manual thoroughly to see how to manage or use them properly. There are tips and tricks in order that a gadget or device could be used the right way and I doubt that manufacturers didn't know that by now. Further, they have quality and control testing all the time. Therefore, if you're afraid of cellphones to kill you, then perhaps you should buy those with a heavier price tag. Which means that the company has tested them over and over again to be safe for use. If they're not safe, you could well know who to sue. Have a great MyLot experience today!

In a way, yes, cell phones may cause brain tumors because of the radioactivity you get when you place the phone on your ear to answer a call. This is according to the latest studies made on the effect of using cell phones on the brain. It is advised to switch to speaker phone or a hands-free device when answering the cell phone. But then the studies also said to get the dangerous level of radioactivity when answering your cell phone, you have to use it continuously for at least 50 minutes. The radioactivity you get from cell phone usage is actually the similar as when you get x-rays or use the microwave oven and the aircon etc. The one thing to remember here is that moderation is the best policy, too much of anything is almost always not good. You can check the web about the studies made on the effect of using the cell phone on the brain.
