What Just 2 HOURS of Cellphone Use Per Month Can Do to Your Risk of Developing THIS Deadly Brain Tumor

Cell phones are now the norm in modern society – but are you aware of the risks we take in using them?

In particular, we’re talking about the long-term use data that shows there are long-term health consequences for using a cell phone regularly.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which classified cell phones as possible carcinogens in 2011, suggested during the late ’90s that a study looking into the relationship between cell phones and cancer made sense. In 2000, the Interphone study was initiated.

While plenty of critics tried to shush the results, the Interphone Study Group did eventually acknowledge that “heavy users” of cell phones had an approximately doubled risk of glioma, a life threatening and often-fatal brain tumor, after 10 years of cell phone use.

Their definition of a heavy user? Anyone using a cell phone 2 1/2 hours per month. Compare that to the average American – for whom a 2014 Nielsen survey noted monthly usage is around 34 hours.

Even worse, more and more children are using cell phones with frightening regularity – despite how little we still know about the long-term consequences.

Even the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) echoed this in 2014, stating, “We recommend caution in cellphone use.” It gets better, though – courtesy industry pressure, that warning can no longer be found anywhere on the CDC website.

Of course, The New York Times obtained more than 500 pages of internal records that suggest there’s far more to the story than this, including disagreements about cell phone risks among its scientists and agency officials.

The New York Times reported:

Christopher J. Portier, former director of the National Center for Environmental Health, the C.D.C. division that made the changes, disagreed with the decision to pull back the revised version. ‘I would not have removed it,’ he said in an interview. 
‘I would have been in support of a recommendation that parents look carefully at whether their children need cellphones or not.’ 
Dr. Portier, who led the center when the revision process was initiated, said he believed parents should have been presented ‘with enough information to say caution isn’t ill advised, because we really don’t know, and there are enough indicators to say we should be cautious.’

This despite clear evidence linking cell phone use with brain tumors, DNA damage, and more.

In particular, consider these findings:

  • Those who logged the most amount of hours on their cell phones were twice as likely to develop glioma compared to those who used them the least
  • Those who used either a cell phone or cordless house phone for more than 25 years had triple the risk of glioma, compared to those who had used wireless telephones for less than one year

And the dangers to children, pregnant women, and those hoping to conceive can be even worse, including:

  • Altered DNA
  • Altered brain metabolism
  • Compromised spinal cords
  • Affected learning abilities

As a result, Dr Mercola suggests the following:

  • Don’t let your child use a cell phone
  • Keep your cell phone use to a minimum
  • Reduce or eliminate your use of other wireless devices
  • Limit cell phone use to areas with excellent reception
  • Avoid carrying your cell phone on your body, and do not sleep with it under your pillow or near your head
  • Don’t assume one cell phone is safer than another
  • Respect others; many are highly sensitive to EMF
  • Use a well-shielded wired headset
