California Department of Public Health has warned that cell phone radiations may be dangerous to health. According to new guidelines, some laboratory experiments have suggested the possibility, that long term, high use of cell phones may be linked to certain health problems.
Health problems include brain cancer, tumors of the acoustic nerve and salivary glands and low sperm count. It could also cause headaches and affect learning, memory and sleep and sleeping with phones away from the bed.
The guidelines recommend keeping phones away from the body when they are not in use. People can also reduce exposure by limiting cell phone use when the cellular signal is weak.
When traveling in a high speed vehicle or while uploading or downloading large files.
The report was issued in response to increasing smartphone use in the U.S especially among children.
Scientists have found that cell phones carry 10 times more bacteria than most toilet seats. Your own hand is to blame for putting germs on your phone.
Most of the organisms found on phones are not harmful, but some should concern you.
Studies have found viruses including streptococcus, MRSA and even E.coli, on cell phones. They won’t automatically cause sickness unless they enter your system. Or you use a phone that a person with strep throat or influenza coughs on.
Now the question is how do you avoid these germs? Scientists agree that it’s best to keep your phone away from the bathroom. Wiping your phone with a soft microfiber cloth can remove many of the germs. For a deeper clean, wipe phones with a cloth dipped in a solution of 60% water and 40% rubbing alcohol. Washing your hands several times a day is also important.
