Cell Phones, Radiation, And Cancer – The Top 5 Most Harmful Phones (And The Top 5 Safest)

cell phone radiation

The Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel has brought forth research showing that certain cellular phones might expose us to high levels of electromagnetic radiation.

Radiation is basically energy moving from one place to another, in either waves or particles. There are two types of radiation: ionizing and non-ionizing. Ionizing radiation comes from radioactive sources or nuclear reactions and is the type that causes mutations and malignant cancers. Non-ionizing radiation is what cell phones emit and contains less energy than ionizing radiation, therefore making it less harmful. But it IS still harmful. Non-ionizing radiation can enter the body and harm sensitive tissue.

The Weizmann study found that using certain cell phone for even 15 minutes was capable of triggering cellular brain changes commonly linked to cancerous cell division.

The Associate Director of the National Institutes of Health, National Toxicology Program, Dr. John Bucher, said, “As of now, with only 10-12 years exposure, and use increasing dramatically, there is a concern of increase in brain cancer, related to use.”

He added that children in early developmental stages are at greater risk due to their skulls allowing deeper penetration of radiation.

To help restrict your exposure to cell phone radiation, the Environmental Working Group released these five recommendations:

  1. Use a headset
  2. Use the speakerphone option
  3. Text more, talk less
  4. Purchase a low radiation phone (see list below)
  5. Stay off the phone when you have a weak signal. Weaker signals mean more emissions to contact the tower.

The EWG also released a list of the top 5 cell phones with the lowest emitted radiation. The results show the maximum possible SAR level from the phone. SAR, or Specific Absorption Rate, measures the rate which the body tissue absorbs radiation energy while using cell phones.

Brand and TypeSAR level
1Samsung Galaxy Note II N71000.17
2Samsung Galaxy Note N70000.26
3SonyEricsson Xperia Play0.36
4Samsung Galaxy Beam0.28
5Samsung Galaxy 5510.38

The following  video lists the the top 5 cell phones with the highest radiation levels.

  1. I am not able to enter my location or language to register on this website. Also there appears to be no ‘contact us’ page apart from this one.

    • Did you try the Register link under participate?

      You are right that we have no “contact us” page, we have an about us page with a list of council members with forms that you can use to contact them. If this has been a problem for you, it may also be a problem for others as well. I’ll discuss with others the idea of adding a “contact us” page under the Welcome menu.

      We are an all volunteer organization with no rental space, street address or wireline phone service. What we have is volunteers using their personal computers, phones, desks and office space to deliver this website and information to the world. We are a network of volunteers.
