According to a study published in Addiction Research and Theory, heavy cell phone use can cause health problems like insomnia, social dysfunction, anxiety, and depression. But walking down the street, it seems that the majority of people are talking, texting or web browsing on their smart phones! In Detox Your World Shazzie discusses even more issues that cell phone over-use can cause, and offers a few simple ways to detox from your device.
The Cancer Link
I mention cancer so many times in Detox Your World simply because our highly toxic lifestyle is a major contributor to ill-health. By slowly but surely reducing our exposure to unnatural products, we will indeed start detoxing our world.
Tests to determine microwave radiation in mobile phones have concluded that former claims of mobile phones being safe are not true.
Depending on how close you hold the mobile phone antenna to your head, up to 60 percent of the microwave radiation penetrates your head. Some microwaves reach up to four centimeters into the brain.
The increase in oral cancer happened at the same time as the emergence of the mobile generation. Though televisions, computers, and cars are all toxic to us, itâ€™s the mobile phone that gets held close to our face in the same spot for hours on end. A 2008 study by Dr. Vini Khurana concluded that mobile phones could kill far more people than smoking or asbestos. Dr. Khurana stated that people should avoid using them wherever possible, and that governments and the mobile phone industry must take immediate steps to reduce exposure to the radiation they generate.
The study revealed that using a mobile phone for ten years or more can double your risk of brain cancer. Because cancers take at least a decade to develop, official safety assurances based on earlier studies are now seen as invalid. How long have you had your mobile phone without protection? Governments around the world are beginning to warn people to only use mobile phones in an emergency.
And it gets scarier. Our bees have started vanishing in massive numbers. We are witnessing worldwide colony collapse disorder (CCD), where the bees suddenly disappear, leaving just the queens, eggs, and a few immature workers. Eerily, parasites, wildlife, and other bees that would normally raid the leftover honey and pollen stay away from these abandoned hives.
More than half of the commercial bee population has disappeared in the United States over the previous few years. We rely on bees to pollinate our food. Without bees, weâ€™d only have four years left on this earth. Though itâ€™s not been proven beyond doubt, and some say the cause is a virus or fungal infection, many fingers are pointing to mobile phones. Experts are guessing their radiation is causing the bees to lose their way and die alone, unable to find their hives.
#1: If you have a mobile phone, turn it off when you donâ€™t need it. You do not have to be disturbed and stressed every hour of the day. Just let your friends know that you have decided to spend your free time doing things other than talking on the phone or texting.
#2: Buy some of the good mobile phone protection products, and use them immediately. Iâ€™ve used the Tachyon device and noticed the difference as soon as I put it on my phone. I now use the electroDOT because itâ€™s small and also really effective. If youâ€™re not cooking your food so much, it makes sense not to fry your brain.
#3: You might also invest in an Air Tube headset. They have been proven to reduce radiation from your phone to your head. Bluetooth headsets still emit microwaves, but theyâ€™re not as strong. The issue here is that many people wander around with them glued to their heads for hours at a time, which causes a cumulative effect. If you want to use a Bluetooth headset, please only use it when you are on a call. I know we are now living in the future, but this is not Star Trek.
