Are My Phone And Computer Going To Give Me Cancer?

Dr. David Wartinger discusses a recent study that he and a colleague performed concerning the effects of cell phone and laptop radiation on the human body.

Introduction

There is a lot of public concern about the safety of cell phones and other wireless technologies. Some people are concerned that the radiofrequency (RF) energy emitted by these devices might be harmful.

RF energy is a type of electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetic radiation is a type of energy that travels through the air and can be absorbed by living things. RF energy from cell phones and other wireless devices is similar to visible light, microwaves, and x-rays — all forms of electromagnetic radiation.

The types ofRF energy emitted by cell phones are classified by their frequency — that is, the number of times per second that the energy waves vibrate. Cell phones emit RF waves at a frequency of about 1900 megahertz (MHz) — this is in the microwave range. Other common sources of electromagnetic radiation in this frequency range include microwaves, Wi-Fi routers, baby monitors, and Bluetooth devices.

What is cancer?

Cancer is a group of diseases that cause cells in the body to change and grow out of control. Cancer can start almost anywhere in the human body, which is made up of trillions of cells. Normally, human cells grow and divide to form new cells as the body needs them. When cells become old or damaged, they die, and new cells take their place.

However, cancer cells do not die. They continue to grow and divide out of control. These extra cancer cells can form a tumor. A tumor can be cancerous or benign. A cancerous tumor is malignant, meaning it can grow and invade nearby tissues and organs. A benign tumor means it cannot grow and invade nearby tissues and organs.

What causes cancer?

There are many things that can cause cancer, and it’s important to remember that everyone is different. While some people may be more susceptible to developing cancer, there are many lifestyle choices that can increase or decrease your risk.

One of the most important things to remember is that cancer is not caused by a single thing. Instead, it is the result of a combination of factors. Some of these factors may be out of your control, but there are many things that you can do to reduce your risk.

Some of the most common causes of cancer include:
-Exposure to ionizing radiation: This can come from X-rays, UV light, and other sources.
-Exposure to certain chemicals: This includes things like asbestos, tobacco smoke, and air pollution.
-Certain viruses and bacteria: These can cause infections that raise your risk of developing cancer.
-Certain hormones: This includes hormones like estrogen and testosterone.
-Family history: If you have close relatives who have had cancer, you may be more likely to develop it yourself.

How common is cancer?

Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for an estimated 9.6 million deaths in 2018. Globally, one in six deaths is due to cancer. In the United States, cancer is the second leading cause of death after heart disease, accounting for about 22% of all deaths. It is estimated that more than 1.7 million new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2019.

How can I reduce my risk of cancer?

You can’t do much to change your genes, and that may be the biggest factor in whether you get cancer. But there are other things you can control. Start by learning what raises your odds of getting cancer and what lowers them.

What are the symptoms of cancer?

Cancer is a disease characterized by the abnormal growth of cells in the body. There are many different types of cancer, each with its own set of symptoms. Some common symptoms of cancer include fatigue, weight loss, and changes in appetite. While these symptoms can be caused by other illnesses, if you experience any of them, it is important to see a doctor for a diagnosis.

How is cancer diagnosed?

Cancer is diagnosed in a number of different ways, depending on the type of cancer and where it is located in the body. Blood tests, imaging tests (such as X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs), and biopsies are all common methods of diagnosis.

What are the treatment options for cancer?

There are many different types of cancer, and the treatment options will vary depending on the type of cancer you have. Some common treatment options include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.

What is the prognosis for cancer?

Cancer is a disease that most people fear. It is important to remember, however, that cancer is not a death sentence. With the right treatment, many people with cancer can go on to live long and healthy lives.

There are many different types of cancer, and the prognosis for each type varies. In general, however, the outlook for people with cancer is improving. Thanks to advances in medical technology, more people are surviving cancer than ever before.

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of whether or not your phone and computer will give you cancer. The risk of developing cancer from exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) is still being studied, and the jury is still out on this issue. However, some studies have suggested that there may be a link between EMF exposure and cancer.

If you are concerned about the possibility of developing cancer from EMF exposure, there are steps you can take to reduce your risk. For example, you can limit your exposure to EMFs by using headphones or speakerphone when talking on your cell phone, and keeping your computer screen at least arm’s length away from your body. Additionally, you can talk to your doctor about other ways to reduce your risk of developing cancer.

What are the prevention options for cancer?

Cancer is a disease caused by the abnormal growth of cells. There are many different types of cancer, each with its own cause and prevention options.

To prevent cancer, it is important to avoid exposure to known cancer-causing agents, such as tobacco smoke, radiation, and certain chemicals. It is also important to eat a healthy diet, maintain a healthy weight, and get regular exercise. These lifestyle choices can help reduce your risk of developing cancer.

If you have a family history of cancer or are at high risk for the disease, you may need to take additional steps to prevent cancer. Your doctor can help you determine what steps you need to take to reduce your risk.
