Cell phones emit radio frequency energy (radio waves), a form of non-ionizing radiation. Tissues nearest to where the phone is held can absorb this energy. Radio frequency energy is linked to certain forms of cancer. This is the same form emitted from microwave ovens and radar. Unlike the ionized radiation used in x-ray machines, which is known to cause cancer, the research regarding non-iodized radiation being a cause of cancer has been inconclusive. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has recently classified radio frequency fields as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” However the American Cancer Society (ACS) states that the evidence is not strong enough to be considered causal and needs to be investigated further.
