There definitely seems to be a link between breast cancer rates and where you keep your cell phone.
Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) December 15, 2013
Dr. Oz said women who keep their cell phones in their bras are putting themselves at risk for breast cancer.
On the Dec. 6 episode of the Dr. Oz Show ("Why You Should Keep Your Cell Phone Out of Your Bra"), Dr. Oz said he believes there's a definite link between cell phones and cancer. http://www.doctoroz.com/episode/why-you-should-keep-your-cell-phone-out-your-bra
"When it comes to cell phones, the bra has become the new purse," said Dr. Oz, who said millions of women are unknowingly endangering themselves for the sake of convenience.
Dr. John West comes on the show and he says, "There definitely seems to be a link between breast cancer rates and where you keep your cell phone," he thinks there is strong evidence that this could be a factor. Tiffany had no family history of breast cancer, she does not have the breast cancer gene, and she was young and healthy. This put her at a very low risk for getting the disease.
According to John Coates, Founder of RF Safe http://www.rfsafe.com. "It's very easy to shield cell phone radiation exposure when storing a phone near one's body by using a simple pouch that contains a shielding fabric to deflect cell phone radiation away from the cell phone user."
When a cell phone is in your pocket or purse, radiation can penetrate the area near the cell phone handset much deeper into your body.
This radiant energy is absorbed much faster than at your head because tissues and organs such as breast, liver, kidneys and reproductive organs all provide much better conductivity than the skull. Simply put most of your major organs have no bone protection like your brain does.
To avoid microwave exposure to vital organs and/or fetal development when using your cell phone, a deflective barrier “RF Safe Pocket or Purse Shield” should always be used between you and the handset itself.
