We live in a world which is powered by electricity and everything that uses electricity generates an Electro-magnetic Field (EMF), which means in the present technology era we are completely surrounded by EMF.  The electromagnetic field, in simple words, is a field generated by the motion of electric charge (i.e. electric current) and comprises of electric and magnetic components.

EMFs are everywhere around us although they cannot be seen through human eyes. EMF can be either natural or those created by our home appliances, transformers, TV antennas, mobile phone base stations etc. As we advance in science and technology the use of devices with EMFs tends to increase. An interesting fact is that there exist tiny currents within the human body.

As a result of chemical reactions within our body minor electric currents are produced, human brain also use electric signals to send orders to other parts of your body, most biochemical reactions like digestion produce tiny currents which in turn produces EMFs which means the EMFs generated by other appliances we use can also interfere with our body’s EMFs.

The effect of EMFs on a living organism depends on the frequency and energy of the field, greater the frequency of EMF the more effect it will have and same goes for energy. EMFs can be divided into three types depending on their frequency.

  • Extremely Low-Frequency Field (ELF)
  • Intermediate Frequency Field (IF)
  • Radio Frequency (RF)

Extremely Low-Frequency Field (ELF)

EMF created around wiring that supplies electricity, power lines and various household appliances is categorized as an extremely low-frequency field.

Intermediate Frequency Field (IF)

The field created by the security system and computer screen is an example of intermediate frequency field. Computer screen attracts dust particles, which is major because of the electric component of EMF. As obvious by the name, the frequency of IF lies between ELF and RF.

Radio Frequency (RF)

Radiofrequency EMF is the field generated by radio, television, microwave ovens and cellular telephone antennas. This field can have a minor interaction with the currents in our body.  RF EMFs have become a vital part of our daily life considering the exceeding use of cell phones.

Below we will discuss in detail the effects of EMF generated by cell phone and why we need to be cautious.

EMFs from Cell- Phone

A cell phone we use almost 24/7 can have effects on your health. According to recent research cell phone affects a human body in two ways,

  1. By extremely low-frequency EMFs which are generated as a result of the current in the cell phone.
  2. By radiofrequency EMFs which are caused by the cellular antenna which transmits your signal to the cellular base stations.

Although the effects are considered negligible if someone is exposed to ELF-EMF over a short period of time, ongoing research shows possible effects on the health of living beings if exposed to it for a longer period and, we, being a part of technology era, cannot escape the EMFs.

On the other hand, considering the exposure to RF-EMFs shows the effects on the living organism are rather adverse.

The cell phone is a device we use extensively and we keep it very close to our body for instance, while traveling when it rests in our pocket, while general use when it is in our hands and while we are attending a call when it touches the side of our brain.

We like to keep it side by even when we are going to sleep. In short, cellular devices stay close to us day and night. The RF-EMFs generated by our device are bound to have some effects on our body.  Following are the effects cell phone’s EMFs can cause:

Salivary Gland Cancer

People who use cell phones more to receive long duration calls are at a greater risk of developing a salivary gland cancer.

Tumor

Extensive use of cell phone especially keeping the phone for long durations on side of your brain affects the brain and can increase the risk of brain tumor. WHO recommends the use of earphones as a precautionary measure.

Leukemia

The growth of abnormal white blood cells by bone marrow or blood-forming organs is called leukemia. People exposed to RF-EMFs for a long time are more prone to leukemia.

Heart diseases and Breast cancer:

Keeping your phone in your shirt pocket close to your chest is highly discouraged. The EMF generated through cellular devices can cause various heart issues and are considered to cause breast cancer.

A possible carcinogen  

The RF-EMFs generated by cellphones are possibly carcinogenic, i.e. they can cause cancerous cells in human beings, according to World Health Organization (WHO).

Psychological problems:

Extensive use of cell phone is said to cause depression. According to a research people living close to cellular towers remain more depressed and stressed which makes them feel fatigued.

The same effect is on the people keeping their cell phone too close to them. It is recommended to keep your cell phones on airplane mode to avoid the adverse effects of RF fields, especially while traveling.

Other issues:

Given below is the list other possible effects of keeping the cell phones around us all the time or living in midst of strong EMFs generating devices, these issues can be considered as the symptoms that our cell phones are affecting us.

  • Headaches
  • Allergies
  • Anxiety
  • Disturbed sleep cycles
  • Electromagnetic Hyper-Sensitivity
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Hormonal changes
  • Miscarriages or infertility
  • Damaged nerves
  • Visual Dysfunctions
  • Appetite loss

In short, the effect of cell phones depends on how rigorously a person used it. In order to avoid the possible issues caused by cell phone, one can try to minimize the use of cell phone, keep cellular phones a bit far from the body and do not attend long phone calls.

We know for sure that electromagnetic field can have adverse effects on living organisms especially above a specific frequency; also we know that effect on the living thing depends on the time of its exposure.

The effects of long-term exposure to EMFs with a frequency below the threshold, the threshold after which acute biological responses can be triggered, seems to be adverse according to the on-going research, so it is time to start taking precautions and stay on the safe side.
