We are living in a modern age where life without a cell phone is not even imaginable, but most of us are familiar with the fact that the use of cell phone exposes us to unhealthy levels of radiation. However, not many people are informed about the dangers related to high levels of radiation. Radiation builds up over time, and can lead to the occurrence of weak immune system, cancer, and DNA damage, which interferes with protein production and cell growth.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), in 2011, classified cell phone radiation as “possible human carcinogen”. As per several studies, smart phone radiation tends to change and damage DNA very quickly. On this issue, 6-year industry study was being conducted, which revealed that human blood exposure to phone radiation led to 300 % increase in genetic damage in micronuclei. This means that cell phone radiation poses higher health risk than both asbestos and smoking.
Radiation Health Dangers
As per the first telecommunications industry-backed studies conducted by George Carlo, PhD, JD who is an epidemiologist and medical scientist, it was proven the existence of risk related to cell phone usage. He states that the amount of time spent on the phone does not matter because the danger mechanism is stimulated within seconds. This is the largest carried out program on this issue, and Dr. Carlo managed to find out the health hazards linked to cell phone use.
Here are some of the radiation health dangers:
- Heart palpitations
- Digestion issues
- Memory problems
- Chronic fatigue
- Chronic stress
Cell phones produce EMR-electromagnetic radiation, which many studies have related to the development of genetic damage and brain tumors. Unfortunately, the general public is unaware of the dangers of EMR, but this is also cleverly hidden by the media that constantly releases new studies suggesting that cell phones are safe for use.
Nevertheless, this did not stop Dr. Carlo to reveal his findings, but very soon he realized that each involved party had its own agenda. He states: “The industry wanted an insurance policy and to have the government come out and say everything was fine. The FDA, which looked bad since it didn’t require pre-market screening, could be seen as taking steps to remedy that. By ordering the study, law makers appeared to be doing something. Everyone had a chance to wear a white hat.”
How to protect ourselves from cell phone radiation?
Fortunately, there is a way, and that is rosemary and rosemary essential oil; both of them incorporate powerful antioxidant properties against radiation damage.
The British Journal of Radiology, in 2009, has come to the conclusion that the compounds carnosol and carnosic acid found in rosemary “provide highly significant protective anti-mutagenic activity”. Rosmarinic acid acts as a photo protector by feeding on the free radicals and consequently killing them by functioning as an endogenous defense mechanism. Furthermore, it was discovered that the solution of toxin production was particularly slowed down by the use of rosmarinic acid and the protective factors were up to 3.34 times higher contrary to the other compounds studied in the micronucleus testing.
Recipe for Rosemary Tea
- 2 cups of boiled water
- 2 to 3 teaspoons of nicely chopped rosemary leaves
Preparation: It is quite simple; all you have to do is to pour boiled water over the chopped rosemary. Leave it to steep for a few minutes.
