Main Nokia distributor admits cellphone tumor link
Ghana Created: 13 Apr 2009
There has been an on-going debate about the safety of cell phones for many years. Not surprisingly, the cell phone industry and various health authorities have countered to assure users that the technology is safe. However, recent research now suggests otherwise.

According to Dr. Vini Khurana, an award-winning cancer expert, mobile phones could kill far more people than smoking.

He said people should avoid using them if possible and urged government and the mobile phone industry to take "immediate steps" to reduce exposure to their radiation.

Cell phones are more like radios than traditional telephones in your home. They emit low levels of radiofrequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while being used. They also emit very low levels of RF when in the stand-by mode.

Using a cell phone can place the radiation antenna close to the userís brain and this can lead to the absorption of comparatively large amounts of electromagnetic energy.

In an interview on Peace FM, the customer Relations Executive of "I 2" Limited, main distributors of Nokia phones in Ghana, Ms. Faith, admitted that, mobile phones can save lives in emergencies, but added that "there is a significant and increasing body of evidence which links mobile phone usage to certain brain tumours. This, she said, will "definitively be proven" in the next decade.

Ms. Faith added that it is advisable for people to stop using several phones or a phone which uses two chips at the same time - because scientists have proven that radiation from two phones made an egg cook during an experiment, giving reason why Nokia has not produced phones that uses two chips.
