Have you been risking your health by scrolling aimlessly through your phone?
It's time for a wake-up call!
According to Dr. Devra Davis, an esteemed expert on environmental health sciences, the dangers you face go far beyond just getting a headache from staring at a screen too long.
In her TEDx Talk "Rapid Fire -- What Brain And Sperm Share and Why Care," she reveals the alarming truth about how using technology can adversely impact our bodies—in ways we never expected.
You won't believe it when you hear that the U.S. is 27 years behind in implementing safety limits or the extent to which EMF radiation harms our brains and sperm cells.
Keep reading to discover the missing link and what you can do to reduce your exposure.
Who Is Dr. Devra Davis?
Dr. Devra Davis is no ordinary scientist. She's a lauded researcher and author whose work in environmental health hazards has garnered her praise worldwide.
In 2000, President Clinton even named her the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Award for Excellence in Research recipient.
And, if that wasn't enough, she wrote a best-seller, "Disconnect," about the shady side of the cell phone industry.
In addition to her writing, she also set up the Environmental Health Trust (EHT).
This non-profit educates and researches the potential harm from environmental hazards like radiofrequency radiation from cell phones.
During her viral TEDx talk "Rapid Fire," Dr. Davis spoke about how this kind of radiation can affect sperm quality and cause severe health issues, even going so far as to say that over-exposure may hurt future generations.
Let's check out the insights we can gain from her talk!
The U.S. Lags In Safety Limits By 27 Years!
You trust your smartphone to keep you connected.
But have you ever stopped to think if it's safe for you?
It's important to know that smartphone manufacturers must follow the FCC's safety and compliance rules before launching a product.
However, the government drafted these rules in 1996 and hasn't changed them since!
To make matters worse, the testing was done on military and medical uses only, where people were asked to use their phones for no longer than 6 minutes at a time.
There are two reasons why that isn't realistic.
First, most mobile phone users hold their devices close to their bodies or keep them inside their front pockets.
Secondly, people spend way more time on their phones than six minutes.
Other countries took a different approach.
In France, for example, they put phones next to the body.
They did this to 400 phones and discovered that 90% of the units they tested failed to pass the current European standards.
Meanwhile, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) conducted independent phone testing.
The CBC found that the test results exceeded the safety limit -- 3 to 4 times the level of radiation absorbed if the phone was tested on how people store their phones, which is in their pocket close to their bodies.
Dr. Davis explained that smartphones are two-way microwave radios.
They send and receive signals -- a "handshake," as she calls it -- 900 times a minute.
And whether the user is on their phone or not, it continuously sends and receives that microwave signal.
iPhones even have a menu called "RF Exposure," which explains that the device was tested from 5 millimeters away from the body - hardly ever the same distance as when we use our phones.
Our safety restrictions lag behind other countries, so we're constantly exposed to potentially hazardous microwave radiation that our bodies can't handle.
Brain, Sperm, And EMF Damage: What’s The Missing Link?
Effect To The Brain
Dr. Davis and her Turkish colleagues conducted a study that found that EMF radiation can be damaging to brain cells.
Why should you be concerned about this?
Brain cells transmit information from the brain to the rest of the nervous system and between parts of the brain.
A child's brain isn't as well-defended as an adult's since they don't have a lot of myelin – a protective sheath covering the brain's outer part–until they reach their mid-20s.
In other words, a younger brain will absorb more radiation than an older one and at a higher level of exposure.
This could affect a developing child significantly.
Fortunately, Dr. Davis pointed out that melatonin can help your body, especially your brain, repair itself if you have enough.
She reminds everyone that avoiding looking at their phone just before bedtime is essential to give your body time to produce melatonin.
Effects To The Sperm
During her presentation, Dr. Davis revealed some hard-to-ignore facts:
1) One out of six couples in the US can't conceive a child despite wanting to.
2) Birthrates are dropping like a stone – the CDC put the annual decrease at a whopping 3%.
So, what’s behind this?
Well, it turns out that keeping your phone in your pocket can cause serious sperm damage.
Her studies with colleagues from Turkey and Brazil found that EMF radiation from these devices can mess up your testicular cells.
On top of that, a separate study showed that even having cell phones close by can lead to erectile dysfunction.
It might sound like there’s no connection between our brains and reproductive organs.
But Dr. Davis explains that both are rich in fat - making them a magnet for toxic agents like heavy metals, air pollution, pesticides, and ionizing radiation.
These toxic agents penetrate the body through the skin or inhalation.
Meanwhile, the EMF radiation from smartphones enhances the absorption of these toxic agents every time someone picks up a call or stores their device in the front pant pocket close to their genitals.
Experts’ Advice On Reducing EMF Exposure
Dr. Davis gave three pieces of advice to help protect your brain and sperm.
These tips come from some of the top authorities in health and safety, like the California Department of Public Health, The American Academy of Pediatrics, the Cleveland Clinic, the Mayo Clinic, and even the French government:
Avoid using the phone when the signal is weak
If you want to cut down your radiation exposure, try not to use your cell when the signal is weak, or it's trying to get connected.
That’s because, during times of poor connection, your phone will work extra hard and send out more radiation to make the connection – so better to hold off until it’s back up to full strength!
Put the device in “Airplane Mode.”
Whenever you can switch your device to “airplane mode” to shield yourself from the potentially harmful radiation emitted by mobile networks.
While in airplane mode, you can still access several features, like playing music or taking pictures.
Keep the phone away from the body.
Keeping your phone at least an arm’s length away from your body while using it can also reduce radiation exposure by reducing radiation intensity.
Additionally, avoid keeping your phone in your pocket or close to any sensitive areas on your body.
You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that EMFs and other forms of radiation can harm our health.
That's why it's important to take experts like Dr. Davis seriously and follow their advice.
