Using mobile for 17 minutes a day can cause cancer, scientists warn

california. American scientists have claimed that smartphones increase the risk of cancer. If you use a mobile for 17 minutes every day for 10 years, then the risk of cancer formation increases by 60 percent. This claim has been made after analyzing 46 types of research related to mobile phones and human health. Researchers from the University of California, who conducted the research, say that the radiation emitted from mobile signals increases stress proteins in the body which damage DNA. However, the US Food and Drug Administration denies that the radio frequency emitted from mobile phones poses a health risk.

Researchers from the University of California have made this claim on the basis of research done in America, Sweden, Britain, Japan, South Korea and New Zealand. Research says, mobile phone users are increasing worldwide. As of 2011, 87 percent of households had a mobile phone. In 2020, this figure increased to 95 percent. Researcher Joel Moskowitz says, people should reduce the use of mobile phones. Keep it away from your body and use landlines as much as possible. The connection between overuse of phones and cancer is disputed, it is a sensitive political topic.

According to Moskowitz, wireless devices make radiation energy more active. When this happens, there is an obstacle in the way of working of cells. As a result, stress proteins and free radicals are formed in the body. This can also damage DNA. There can be death too. Not much research has been done on the effect of radiofrequency radiation on health because the US government stopped funding for research in 1990 itself.

In 2018, research from the National Institute of Environmental Health Science found evidence that mobile phone radiation can cause cancer. However, it was rejected by the FDA saying that it cannot be applied to humans. The team of researchers has also done a research in collaboration with South Korea National Cancer Center and Seoul National University.
