Secret Document Confirms Cell Phone Use Increases Cancer Risk

California state health officials claim that EMFs can affect nearby cells and tissues, and recommend that users keep devices away from the head and body by using headsets, texting when possible, and to avoid sleeping close to a device if it is switched on.

The document, which has "Draft and Not for Public Release" stamped across its two pages, contains summaries of various scientific studies suggesting that frequent and long-term cell phone use may cause various health issues and increase the risk of brain cancer, especially among the young.

Titled "Cell Phones and Health", the draft document outlined the concerns of the health officials over cell phone radiation exposure.

"Several studies have found that people with certain kinds of brain cancer were more likely to have used cell phones for 10 years or more".

Joel Moskowitz, Ph.D., the director of the Center for Family and Community Health at UC Berkeley's School of Public Health, sued the state past year under the California Public Records Act.

State scientists began drafting the guidelines seven years ago, but never made them public until Thursday, in response to a story from KCRA's partner, the San Francisco Chronicle. Under the California Public Records Act, Moskowitz demanded the release of the document.

The draft mentions that electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are emitted from the cell phones, just like many other electronics. Do not sleep with your cell phone near you or carry it in a pocket or directly on your body unless the phone is turned off”, the document states. The report also mentions that the EMFs can pass deeper into a child's brain that an adult's, so the little ones should be kept at bay from the cell phones.

Limit your usage when the signal is weak, the cell phone emits stronger EMFs when having one or two signal bars than when three, four or five signal bars are shown. Using a wired phone for longer talks is advised.
