Cell phone radiation is a type of electromagnetic radiation emitted by wireless devices. Sources of cell phone radiation include power lines, cordless phones, and smart meters. It is also emitted by some other technological devices such as televisions, microwave ovens, and baby monitors. Both the World Health Organization and the European Community have recommended limiting radiation exposure from cell phones, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued safety guidelines for cell phone use.
According to the National Toxicology Program, cell phone radiation is not harmful at low levels but can have long-term health effects. Scientists who studied the effects of cell phone radiation on rats found that radiation exposure in rats has effects similar to those in humans. The data obtained from these studies can help us understand the effects of cell phone radiation on human health. For example, cell phone users should
