Researchers have long been studying on the health impacts of the long-term usage of mobile phones that release electromagnetic radiation while sending and receiving signals from Wi-Fi devices or network towers. But no one has credibly or convincingly claimed the case showing that lower amounts of emitting radiations from different private electronic devices add threats to human health.
The California Department of Public Health has recently released some new guidelines for the people wishing to lessen being exposed to such kinds of energy and their potential dangers.
The new guidelines released last week, indicate that, ‘some laboratory experiments and human health studies have suggested the possibility that long-term, high use of cell phones may be linked to certain types of cancer and other health effects.’
These certain health impacts also include development of tumors in the salivary glands and acoustic nerves, brain cancer, lower sperm count, effects and headaches on memory, learning, hearing, sleep and behavior.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the national public health institute of the United States issued the guidelines in 2014 notifying that the case hasn’t proved scientifically true with no evidences for the association between cellphones and health problems.
In 2015, the same thing happened in Connecticut. And now, the latest department of public health, the California Department of Public Health is going to do so. On Wednesday, the department has issued the document, which is titled as ‘How to Reduce Exposure to Radiofrequency Energy from Cell Phones’.
Director at the California Department of Public Health, Dr. Karen Smith explained the guidelines as an alert rather than warning, saying that, “This is a response to concerns that have been expressed to us, over and over again, by the general public.”
