Back in the day when mobile phones first became popular there came with it a fear that people could develop cancer due to the radiation.
However, while it didn’t stop us from using them, there was always a fear, especially when your ear turned red from speaking on it for too long.
Scientists also worried about their ability to cause cancer because they emit “emit radiofrequency energy, a form of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation, which can be absorbed by tissues closest to where the phone is held.”
However, the good news is that, after an 11-year study, scientists have found that mobile phones don’t actually cause cancer.
According to the chairman of the Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research, Professor David Coggon: “We can now be much more confident about the safety of modern telecommunications systems.”
Well that is certainly a weight lifted off our minds – we can use our mobile guilt-free.
