How can it you say?everyone has a mobile phone!!

The article below is an excerpt from an article by personal trainer and author of the best selling book "Truth about Abs", Mike Geary.

But read on....

A correlation between cell phone use and testicular cancer, reduced Testosterone levels, lowered seminal volume and sperm count?

You've probably started hearing in the media about emerging studies showing possible correlations between heavy cell phone use and brain tumors.  But what not many people are talking about is the risk of carrying cell phones in our pockets for hours each day.  This is where it gets even more interesting and a little scary too!

Now although some of the example and studies are geared towards guys, I wouldnt trust it's only guys who can experience health issues from heavy cell phone use.

Some people simply dont believe that mobiles can give off any radiation that could harm your health over time. But we're not talking about immediate harm, we are talking about long term harm from chronic use and the fact is that the majority of us use mobiles daily and keep them in our pockets.

According to a recent article published on Yahoo Health, and a large health study conducted, the 2010 interphone study, "People who chatted via mobile for 30minutes a day for 10 years saw their risk of glioma ( a type of brain tumour) rise by 40%"

Most of the population has only been using cell phones and wifi heavily for less than 10 years now... that's not a long enough time to know long term consequences (such as 15-30 year cancer risks) and most studies that supposedly "prove" the safety of cell phones have been funded by the telecom industry and have ridiculously low usage levels that they study.

As Tim Ferriss points out in his fascinating new book, The 4-Hour Body ... "Most of the studies performed in the US that conclude no negative effect are funded either directly or indirectly (as with many IEEE studies) by cell phone manufacturers and carriers.  Does this prove malfeasance?  No, but it should raise a red flag."

He goes on to say "Lo and behold, jumping from article to article on Medline, there were more than a handful of studies that showed significant decreases in serum testosterone in rats following even moderate exposure (30 minutes per day, 5 days a week, for 4 weeks) to 900 megahertz radio frequency electro-magnetic fields (EMF), which is what most GSM cell phones produce."

Tim also presents the results he read on male rats that were exposed to a mobile phone for 1 hour continuously per day for 28 days... the end result of the study was that the mobile phone exposure to the rats significantly reduced the % of motile sperm.  The conclusion was that mobile phones negatively affect semen quality and may impair male fertility.

Think about this... The rats were exposed for 1 hour, how many of us carry our mobiles around for 8-10 hours a day?!!

Tim Ferriss decided to do a test on himself. For 11 weeks he kept his phone away from his pocket, left it at the other side of the room or out in the car when training.

The Numbers are shocking!!...
  • Ejaculate volume:  44% increase
  • Motile sperm per milliliter:  100% increase
  • Motile sperm per ejaculate:  185% increase
Again, it's not all about the men. In fact, on the recent Yahoo Health article, according to David Carpenter, M.D., director of the Institute for Health and Environment at the University at Albany (regarding carrying cell phones near the pelvis, or using laptops on the lap), "For women, the studies aren't quite there yet, but I think we can say that anything that might cause cancer almost always causes birth defects, so pregnant women—or those wanting to become pregnant soon—should take extra precautions."

Whether there's any conclusive evidence of cancer risk from cell phones, perhaps that's still to be determined...Let's be realistic, noone is going to give up their mobile but trying to limit exposure may greatly reduce the risk of cancer etc when the studies and results prove more conclusive.
