When you use wireless devices you expose yourself to neurodegenerative diseases and cancer, due to metabolic imbalances that these devices imply on your body, recent study suggests.
The study explores how low-intensity radio-frequency radiation (RFR) affects metabolism imbalance in living cells.
The phenomenon, also called “oxidative stress”, is defined by co-author Dr. Igor Yakymenko as “an imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen species and antioxidant defence.” Dr. Yakymenko explains the oxidative stress due to RFR long-term exposure or “ordinary wireless radiation” may be the reason for cancer as well as other disorders such as headache, fatigue and skin irritation. “These data are a clear sign of the real risks this kind of radiation poses for human health,” he states.
Previous 2011 research showed possible carcinogenic effects of radio-frequency/microwave radiation, classifying RFR as possible carcinogen for humans, through oxidative impairments in living cells.
The research team warns for precaution while using wireless technologies, such as cell phones and wireless Internet.
