To Those Who Scoff

Mobile phone over-use leads to premature aging - study
Mobile phone over-use leads to premature aging - study
CAIRO, May 14 (KUNA) -- Use your mobile phone too much and you would risk health problems associated with old age, a bio-physics and radio-physics study indicated.

The study, conducted by researchers at Cairo University headed by Professor of bio-physics and radio-physics Dr. Fadhil Mohammad Ali, said much of today's technology that uses short and micro waves poses threats to the human biology and bodily functions.

Exposure to this kind of waves in the home and work place causes damage to human cells and red blood cells in particular. Performance of blood enzymes is also affected as a result of damage in the enzyme-producing cells, the researchers said.

As for recommendations, the team said it is best to re-set international safe limits for both exposure and resulting damage with use of microwaves and kin technology. They specifically urged the public to return to the usual phone lines whenever possible to limit use of mobiles.

This was a 15-year study of three phases that included surveys of the electromagnetic and electric fields in certain areas like homes and offices near high-voltage towers and plants where powerful electric currents are used. The safe distance from such a strong field or power tower was found to be over 20 meters. As for radio broadcasting towers, it was advised to stay a kilometer away.

Exposure to such conditions in plants was proved to have led to health problems among the workers like heart problems, tension, allergies and other ailments.

The voltage used in Egypt was examined and the researchers found the magnetic and electromagnetic fields have affected liver enzymes, glands, muscles, hormone balance, the heart and bone-marrow. Exposure affected fetuses in lab rats and the pregnant rats developed blood and lymphatic cancers, the study showed.

The researchers analyzed their findings and the manner the human body cells are affected and formulated a new theory they hope would help manipulate and reduce the harmful effects of microwaves. They even aspire it would make it possible to correct cancerous cells' behavior without the usual surgical, radiation or chemical intervention. (

If you read the footnotes, you'll also find that they recommend using "pyramid power" to combat these negative effects.

For the FDA's view on the issue, look at this.
