Need A Cooker? Use Your Cell Phone
Many organizations including the cell phone
industry often downplay the risk of cell phone radiation to the brain.
Results from short-term studies were used to convince consumers that
use of a cell phone is not associated with brain tumors or cancer,
which only develop decades after exposure.
In the experiment, researchers placed one egg in a porcelain cup (because it is easy to conduct heat), and put one cell phone on one side and another cell phone on the other. The researchers then called from one cell phone to another and kept the cell phones on after connecting.
During the first 15 minutes, nothing changed. After 25 minutes, however, the egg shell started to become hot and at 40 minutes, the surface of the egg became hard and bristled. Researchers found the protein in the egg had become solid although the egg yolk was still in liquid form. After 65 minutes, the whole egg was well cooked.
The study shows how scary cell phone radiation is. People should try to avoid use of cell phones. Although so far no one has proved the radiation from cell phones can cause something clinically significant. By the same token, there has been no one who can disprove the existence of such a risk.
Children should be forbidden from cell phone use because their brains are still growing and they particularly vulnerable to radiation.
