There was a time when the cigarette companies said with confidence that cigarettes weren’t bad for your health. With no scientific proof people believed them – until people started dying and evidence started-coming out showing that cigarettes were indeed hazardous to your health.
However – before the cover was blown you’d sound like a crazy person trying to convince smokers that it was dangerous. In fact you could probably expect to hear the following response, “the companies that make cigarettes say they are perfectly safe…do you really think they would put so many lives at risk?”
Well we all know they did and I’m getting more and more confident that cellphones will replace cigarettes as the silent killer of our generation.
Of course nobody wants to believe that their cellphone could cause brain tumors so it’s easier to use the same excuse, “the companies that make cellphones say they are perfectly safe…do you reall think they would put so many lives at risk?”
Well as more and more reports of cellphone-related tumors come-out the evidence is starting to become hard to ignore. GQ recently ran an article in which they interviewed a finance guy in his 30’s who had developed a brain tumor due to cellphone use. He also knew of multiple people within his own company that had died of a brain tumor…coincidence? You be the judge!
Before you comment on this post I highly encourage you to read the following article:
Warning: Your Cell Phone May Be Hazardous to Your Health
If you’re too lazy to read the article – then just read the first four paragraphs. What you will read is what I see as the very beginning of what will become a global problem over the next ten years.
With many smartphones emitting close to the legal limit of radiation (measured by the SAR rating) Apple’s latest phenomenon could become the silent killer of the future.
I’ve been worried about cellphone radiation for some time now and as a result speak almost exclusively on speakerphone – and no I don’t have one of those trendy bluetooth headsets that I see people wearing 24/7!
So now you tell me – does this concern you at all or do you think these HUGE companies that are making money hand-over-fist and are heavily protected by the FCC might actually be creating devices more dangerous than cigarettes? Heck – finance guys in their 30’s who smoke cigarettes almost never get lung cancer until later in life…but brain tumors in your mid-30’s, and multiple people in the same firm? This is more than a coincidence – this is a problem and we’re just seeing the tip of the iceberg.
Now it’s your turn – share your thoughts and let your voice be heard!
