Is Cordless Phone Radiation Dangerous?
Find out if cordless phone radiations are harmful...
Cordless phones might not be much safer than cell phones, according to a new Swedish study. This study found that both cell phone and cordless phone users had increased risk of brain tumors.
In September 2007, the German government released an official statement urging citizens to minimize their use of all wireless technology citing “severe health risks.” One of their suggestions was to replace cordless phones with corded.
Cordless Phone Radiation vs Cell Phone Radiation
Cordless phones emit the same type of wireless microwave radiation, often referred to as radiofrequency or RF radiation as cell phones.
Unlike cell phones, which receive wireless signals from cell towers and satellites, cordless phones are picking up signals transmitted from the antenna on the phone’s base station.
Although the distance the frequencies travel is different, the type of radiation that cell phones and cordless phones give off is the same.
Wireless microwave radiation is hazardous to our bodies for several reasons. Microwave radiation has the ability to penetrate our cells and create biological changes which affect everything from our DNA to our blood/brain barrier.
EMF Symptoms from Cordless Phone Radiation Exposure
When you talk on a cordless phone, your brain, eyes and ears are being bathed in microwave frequencies. Regular cordless phone users experience many of the same symptoms experienced by cell phone users.
The following symptoms have been found to be linked to short-term microwave radiation exposure. to the face/head area:
- eye twitching
- burning sensation on the face
- hot ear
- sleep disturbances
- vision problems
- neck pain
- ringing in the ears
- skin rashes
Long-term exposure to microwave radiation on and around the head has been linked to:
- brain tumors
- hair loss
If you are experiencing symptoms while talking on a cordless phone, think about going back to using a corded phone. If this is not possible, then we recommend clearing the microwave radiation coming from the phone’s antenna.
How To Protect From Cordless Phone Radiation
To clear a cordless phone, we recommend using spot-clearing devices to clear both the base station as well as the handsets.
