In the modern era, mobile phones are not only capable of making and receiving a phone call, taking pictures, storing data only but also offer various other features. When they were introduced, these were expensive, bigger, and the service was not as good as it is today, the service was also costly. But with time and more superior technology like use of satellites and wireless services the service has improved and made simple for larger people to use it.
This wireless media soon became so popular that they become a medium to stay connected with the world and seemed useful in case of emergency. They formed a quick medium to get connected in case of emergency. With further advancement in the technology of mobile phones, they became more user-friendly with the addition of more features of internet access, sending and receiving photos, and GPS technology.
The expansion of wireless services gave a boom to this industry to flourish. Previously connectivity issues were resolved with more powerful and modern connection facilities. With most companies targeting general public by offering easy and cheap packages at nominal rates and due to the competition of mobile companies, the mobile phones are also becoming cheap, smaller in size and with more addition of features.
Now it was not just a way to make and receive a call, but it was being used to send and receive data be it pictures or videos, sending SMS, check emails, and connect to PC or laptops. Today the mobile phones are more advanced with the introduction of androids and smart phones that are capable of doing most of the things done on PC or laptops. These have formed a way to stay connected with the world with the use of mobile phone app, and internet access is easy and handy, being used anywhere at our convenience.
With these features, this small handheld device formed a necessary part of our lives where one can hardly imagine being without it. Everything has its merits and demerits, so do mobile phones also do have. Apart from being connected to the outer world and in the case of emergency from some of the mobile phones advantages.
Using it most of the time say for chatting or net surfing forms the major disadvantage as one gets so involved in it that one forgets the environment around it. Mobile phones are a way to stay connected with our family and friends and should be used wisely as excessive use of everything is bad.
The 21st century is known as the century of mobile phone revolution. The mobile phone over the years has become an integral part of our lives. From students to professionals, everyone uses a mobile phone in their life. People have developed such a character that they can’t even live without a mobile phone.
It is a naked truth that mobile phone has turned our lives more mobile. You can easily contact your family members and friends where ever you go. The mobile phone has a million numbers of advantages. But as everyone says, if something has a good face, and then surely it would have a bad face. Similarly, our beloved mobile phones have also many disadvantages which are unfortunately threatening to our lives.
It is true that our mobile phones have several health hazards. Our mobile phones are microwave transmitters. Microwaves are of gigahertz range. It means that it would oscillate about million to billion times per second. The microwave exposure and cancer have a close relation. Because these, microwave frequencies can interfere with the proper structure of DNA and also triggers cell ageing.
iPhone RF Exposure Information
iPhone has been tested and meets applicable limits for radio frequency (RF) exposure.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) refers to the rate at which the body absorbs RF energy. The SAR limit is 1.6 watts per kilogram in countries that set the limit averaged over 1 gram of tissue and 2.0 watts per kilogram in countries that set the limit averaged over 10 grams of tissue. During testing, iPhone radios are set to their highest transmission levels and placed in positions that simulate uses against the head, with no separation, and when worn or carried against the torso of the body, with 5mm separation.
To reduce exposure to RF energy, use a hands-free option, such as the built-in speakerphone, the supplied headphones, or other similar accessories. Cases with metal parts may change the RF performance of the device, including its compliance with RF exposure guidelines, in a manner that has not been tested or certified.
Although this device has been tested to determine SAR in each band of operation, not all bands are available in all areas. Bands are dependent on your service provider’s wireless and roaming networks.
It’s not just Apple phones that emmit RF radiation it is all mobile phones, Check out Dr Devra Davis on “The truth about mobile phone and wireless radiation”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwyDCHf5iCY
In 1993 the telecom industry spent about $25 million to promote the mobile phones by conducting researches on its effects and certified that mobile phones are cent percent safe. But now it has turned out to be just the opposite. Studies have proved that usage of mobile phones inside the automobiles will increase the strength of the microwave field.
These high magnitude electromagnetic fields are injurious to health. The studies conducted in various parts of the world tell us the fact that the percentage of brain cancer patients have increased after the revolution of mobile phones. The effects of these radiations have a greater impact on the children.
So do keep away your mobile phones from the reach of your children. It is found out that the intensity of microwave radiation is greater in the keypads and at the microphone mouthpiece. So this causes radiation to have a direct impact on the eye, ear, and nose.
Placing your mobile phone close to your ear causes radiation to have its impact on the brain. Short term usage won’t risk your life. But a longer version could bring trouble.
It is advisable to use a headset while taking on your mobile phone. But still, this won’t help you get away from cancer. It sure keeps your mobile away from the brain and head, but it surely will have an impact on your liver and heart if you are placing your mobile phone in your pocket.
So it is better not even to use a mobile phone! But as you all know that we have brought our lives into such positions that we can’t even think about leading a life without mobile phones. For millions of years, the amount of radiation is very low. But after the mobile phone revolution, this amount has just doubled in two or three decades.
These studies and facts are trying to get our attention into a potential danger of using mobile phones. Why do we love a thing which is going to kill you anyway? So every one of those who is reading this should be aware of the fact that mobile phones are a potential danger to your health.
Cell phones are everywhere. Just walk down your local main street and you will see many people talking about them. They have become part of everyday life. We use them for contacting friends and family; we use them for ordering pizzas, we have just grown so used to them that they are part of our everyday life and we cannot do without them now. No matter where you are now in the world, you can be contacted on your cell phone.
