Sleeping with Mobile Next to Head may Increase Risk for Cancer

Recent study by group of researchers from London reported on December 19, 2017, that sleeping mobile phone next to head could increase the risk of brain cancer.

Radio frequency waves emitted by mobile phones are believed to increase the risk of brain cancer as well as tumors of the acoustic nerve and salivary glands. Emission of Radio frequency energy is also linked with lower sperm counts and low sperm mobility.

Although researchers did not reveal any specific health effects of using mobile phones, people are advised to avoid keeping phones nearby while sleeping to reduce the risk. According to Department of Health, when a phone sends signals to a tower, the radio frequency energy goes from the phone’s antenna out in all directions including into the head and body of the person using the phone. Cell phones work by sending and receiving signals to and from cell phone towers.

People could reduce their risk of brain cancer by carrying their phones in a bag or purse and not in their pockets. People are also advised to reduce or avoid using mobile phones when it only has one or two bars of signal. When the signal is low, the phone emits more radio frequency energy to boost its connection to signal towers. Additionally, using wireless headsets could lower the risk of cancer, as they emit less energy than mobile phone. According to the Cancer Profiling Market report published by Coherent Market Insights, cancer profiling is a technique used to classify tumors more accurately, which helps in predicting the patient’s clinical outcome. Usage of mobile phones increasing risk for cancer can be detect using cancer profiling. Researchers are working on finding how mobile phone use could play a role in developing cancer.
