Does Short-term Exposure to Cell Phone Radiation Affect the Blood?

Good rouleu

One of the testing modalities that we utilize in our wellness center is Live Blood analysis.  We place one drop of blood on a slide and view it under a microscope.  This is REALLY fascinating and fun to view!   It is also VERY enlightening to the client whose blood is on the slide.  A “dark-field” scope is used as above, and/or a “phase-contrast” as below.

When the person views his/her blood, they become much more interested in their health, and what affects it!

The controversy on cell phone radiation lingers on.  Does it affect our health in any way?  Or is it just a benign technology?  This is the question that has been around for decades.

The Weston A. Price Foundation recently posted a study done to see if cell phone radiation exposure affects the blood.  The study was a small (10 participant) , short term study that checked the blood after 3 scenarios.  First was a baseline (no phone exposure), then a “carrying” condition where they carried a phone in a backpack for 45 minutes, and finally an “active use” condition where they were talking on the phone for 45 minutes.  You can read the whole writeup here.

The results were not good, and you can see that very clearly how the blood is affected!  But does this cause disease?  It’s very hard to determine without long term controlled studies.  The problems take MANY years to develop, during which time there are MANY factors that must be considered.

Does the health of the individual affect the outcome?  Probably because the worse your level of health is, the more easily toxic substances and exposures will cause problems.  So consider this the next time you have a craving for an alcohol binge or consuming junk food

This whole debate on cell phones is the “cigarette” of the future!
