Mobile phones have less powerful electromagnetic wave emissions than base stations, but they are all the time much closer to the body. Especially men wear them in the trousers which is very harmful to their body. Children in particular have the biggest possibility of being affected by mobile phone usage. Their nervous systems are still developing and therefore are more vulnerable to the factors that may cause cancer or other disorders. Moreover, electromagnetic radiation has long-term effects on human bodies, and because they have many more years of life, children have the potential of accumulating more pollution caused by mobile phones than adults do.
Base stations, unlike mobile phones, cannot be switched off. Also, the electromagnetic waves are emitted continuously and are more powerful the closer they are. Electromagnetic radiation caused by base stations is possibly the cause of headaches, dizziness, memory loss, fatigue, decreased reproductive capacity, sleep disturbances, disturbances of the digestive system, as well as possibly being carcinogenic to human beings. Sensitive individuals are more exposed to electromagnetic radiation suffer more severe harmful health effects, and they often have a considerably decreased quality of life.
Radar systems were invented for navigation, aviation, navy, national defense, and weather forecasting purposes. Radar system operations are based on sending the pulses of high frequency electromagnetic fields. The people most affected by the radiation caused by radars are those who live or work near radars. Radar has long-term adverse effects on people’s health conditions, including causing disorders of the reproductive system, disturbed development of children, cataracts, as well as a possibility of having cancer. However persons traveling in planes and ships as guests as well as working personnel are affected as well.
These days almost every cell phone or other mobile device has Wi-Fi, so using the Internet is very common, for everyday communications. The rooms where people live and work contain wireless radiation; moreover the wireless radiation is going through the walls, which means that an individual switching off the Wi-Fi router is still affected by their neighbours’ Wi-Fi. Because of these conditions, individuals subject themselves to possible risks of reduced brain activity which negatively affects cell growth (particularly endangering children), DNA fragmentation, the possibility of abnormal pregnancy, insomnia, and increased heart rate.
In the 21st century’s information technology, laptops and tablets have become a must have. People use them for work and for private purposes, and thus expose themselves to electromagnetic pollution and harm their health. Especially high emissions of electromagnetic waves are detected when laptops are used closely to the body. Laptops used close to the body, particularly on the lap, cause harmful thermal and non- thermal effects and destructively affect reproductive health and fertility both in men and in women. Electromagnetic radiation leaves harmful effects on males’ semen quality and females’ womb health. Electromagnetic pollution is especially harmful for fetuses.
Bluetooth is a type of wireless radio wave frequency (microwave radiation) and is produced from different kinds of Bluetooth technologies, like Bluetooth headsets, printers, and keyboards. In long term usage, microwave radiation can possibly lead to Alzheimer’s, brain tumours, autism, birth defects, multiple scleroses, and cancer. Bluetooth headsets may lead to affected hearing, affected vision, brain tumours, and headaches. Bluetooth is emerging more and more as the major communication standard for short distance data transfer and applications. These products send strong signals when used across multiple devices and can be used simultaneously, which drastically increase the exposure.
