After years of speculation, the committee formed by the government of India finally confirmed that mobile phones do pose a serious risk and should be viewed as a health hazard.

The eight-member inter ministerial committee also said that the radiation caused by mobile phones could be one of the causes of the falling number of butterflies, sparrows and other insects.

The findings of the committee will now pose a serious problem for mobile phone operators and handset makers after it recommended that those phones which did not meet the specific absorption rate (SAR) of radiation should be banned while cell phone towers should not be placed near high density residential areas, schools, playgrounds and hospitals.

"People who are chronically exposed to low-level wireless antenna emissions and users of mobile handsets have reported feeling several unspecific symptoms during and after its use, ranging from burning and tingling sensation in the skin of the head, fatigue, sleep disturbances, dizziness, lack of concentration, ringing in the ears, reaction time, loss of memory, headache, disturbance in digestive system and heart palpitation", the report said.

The radiations emitted from mobile phone are more dangerous than radiations reaching to user from the cell phone tower, because the intensity of the radiations drop below the danger limit when it reaches a user who is usually hundreds of meters away from the cell tower, but as the mobile phone is usually very very close to our body most of the time and the intensity of radiations reaching us from it is very high compared to the radiations from cell tower,,, so be careful and start protecting yourself from the mobile phone radiations, know more at http://www.waveban.in
