Cell phone brain damage
    #3802351 - 02/19/05 03:27 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

The danger of cell phones. They will microwave your brain and heat a small part of the brain.

Even 1 second usage can cause brain damage. Making the brain stem weaker. Having MAO-I-like effects. Breaking the BBB. Cuasing tyramine damage after chronic usage.

Throw them out.

and I quote one of your ratings

"stating thing as fact that are really just your own speculation. WTF was the point of that"

while I do think cell phones are probably bad for you, I dont think your claims have much evidence to back them up :stoned: (like the part about one second of use causing brain damage, where did you hear that?)

While i agree that his post was a bit exagerated, there have been numerous claims about brain-damage and other brain disorders from cell phones.

Not to mention the guy who almost lost one of his ears because of his cell phone blow up

I thought i could use it rarely but its hard, i guess i 'll throw it away!

What part of the cell phone does the damaging? Is it the speaker?
the mic? the processing unit? the screen? the battery? the
transmitter?

Is there a way to make cell phones safe? like use a headset and
keep the transmitter away from your precious gray matter?

I'd really like to hear a good discussion about this... if I find a
conclusion that I like and can agree with, i just might use a cell
phone.

Right now, I reject the notion of cell phones. I think I can count the
number of times I've used one on two hands.

BS. There's been alot of research on this, and cell phones have international radiation limits these days.

I sure hope they cause brain cancer or something, then I'll be one of the few people alive anymore. There could be some truth to this, just look at all the people on their cells driving poorly, maybe it's from brain damage LOL

All radiation increases the risk of cancer. The radiation from a cellphone is insignificant, compared to other everyday sources like radon in drinking water, cosmic radiation etc.

Within the EU the radiation limit(SAR,specific absorpion rate) for cellphones is 2W/kg. For comparison the limit for exposure at workplaces is 10W/kg.

A cellphone doesn't "cook" the brain, the increase in brain surcafe temperature caused by the cellphones electromagnetic field is ~0.3 degrees celsius. Brain damage occurs after an increse of 5 or more degrees.

It's an EM wave going through your brain. His argument is not based off of nothing. There is a lot of EM waves coming out of that cell.

Like an MAOI haha.. wtf.. if you're going to spout out all of this shit then back it up man.. you really have to if you're going to say such far out stuff.. i don't buy it. And yeah sure, there have been claims of brain damage from cell phones, but i think it's rare and i don't believe what you said is actual fact. there may be some relevant truth close to the subject of brain damage and cell phones.. but again, lets see some sources. and the maoi thing, i dont even get what you mean by that.

sources.. sources.. sources..

I have read that in one study spanning 30 or so years in Sweden, since the introduction of mobile phones, that the incidence of acoustic neurinoma has increased drammatically.

But others which didn't back this up.

It's a benign tumor of the 8th cranial nerve that occurs either alone or with neurofibroma-2 (way more deadly)

For the acoustic neuroma, it's seriously rare. occuring in about 1 in 1000 people with unilateral tinnitus and hearing loss.
The hearing loss is normally characterised by insensitivity to high frequency sounds, and the tinnitus is usually pulsatile in nature.

technically speaking, you don't even need a cell phone. Today with all the microwaves present in our lower atmosphere, we all are recieving excess levels of radiation.

Haha you can't escape the radiation hahha

I read in a newspaper, that cordless house phones are even worse! hmmmm

The spiritual damage caused by cell phones is even worse tho, it is very very tricky to be SOOO accesible....You are prone to anyone with bad feelings, shity day or any other type of energy sucking mood.

These phones suck your spiritual energy big time, no wonder why people get sick from them in the long run...

It also makes human relationships alot weaker, cos you know the person you meet, will be "in reach" anytime of the day anyway!
This makes you appreciate the magic moment of meeting someone a lot less imo. Telephone sucks generally

Internet gives you a multidimentional freedom of choosing the type of communication, and the time alot better.

soooooo...
has anybody read heinlein's story _waldo_ ?
(just wait until they start beamcasting power & not just information!)

~

i suspect that having any low power transmitter right next to your head for extended periods of time is NOT good for your neurons... really...
900 MHz, 1.2 GHz, 9.1 GHz, i dunno... these wavelengths are getting down to the centimeter range, yes? nu = c/lambda, right? so lambda = c/nu...
i betcha the neurons are somehow susceptible to "something" happening at those frequencies...
maybe we'll find out in 50 years, eh?

From what I've read, that happens usually because people put off-brand batteries into them to save a few bucks. Buy the name brand batteries to prevent this...

Good idea. I have a land-line phone, and thats fine by me. It's generally cheaper as well. I'm just not that busy and there aren't enough people I have to call to warrent a cellphone....
