Dr. Oz: Tips On Safe Cell Phone Use

Cell phone use causes causes undefined electromagnetic activity.Apr 26, 2011 – The Dr. Oz Show recently did an episode on Cell Phones and  the current research raising questions about the safety of cell phone usage and the risk of  brain cancer.  Dr. Mehmet Oz’s in his usual passionate concern for our health, showed us graphics on how certain brain areas lit up when in contact with the antenna of the cell phone, not the battery. This activity was present when the cell phone was on mute, so there was no conversation effecting the brain activity.
He had guest, Dr Audrey Halpern, MD Neurologist, help explain. Dr Halpern said that it is too early to say if cell phone use is safe or not, but the study is fascinating because it’s the first time anyone has actually demonstrated that there is a direct effect on brain activity associated from cell phone use.These effects showed up as increased metabolism in the brain and chemical messages being sent, but the long term implications of these activities are not clear.

Dr. Oz gave us some precautions to take until more definitive proof of safety is available:
1.  Switch ears when talking on a cell phone, so the brain lessens that “lighting up” activity in the brain and doesn’t get all the pressure and exposure from the electromagnetic radiation.
2.  Never use the phone when you have a weak signal, because the phone has to boost its power to improve the signal.  That power boost, may also boost the  electromagnetic effects on your brain. Why bother taking a chance.
3.  Keep your phone 5 feet away from your bed at night.
4.  For people under the age of 20, the brain is still evolving,  so do not use it too much!
5.  Use an earpiece or headset device that is not connected to and is away from the cell phone antenna if you are going to be  on the phone for long periods and/or all day!
