Dangers of Cell Phones to Health
As cell phone ownership has surged in recent years, so have questions about the dangers of cell phones and how they affect your health. One new potential impact researchers have discovered? Cell phone use could be one of the causes of tinnitus — a little-understood condition that causes distracting ringing, buzzing, humming, or other low-level sounds in the ears. In a recent study, researchers examined a group of people who already had tinnitus, as well as a group of people of a similar age who didn’t. And after doing ear exams and hearing tests and surveying people about their cell habits and history, researchers discovered that the risk of tinnitus was about 71% higher among people who used their mobile phones at least 10 minutes a day. The odds of having the condition were also doubled in people who’d been using a cell phone for at least 4 years. Click here for more information.
