I never thought much of it when I tucked my cell phone in my bra, I didn’t do it all the time just when my hands were full or I didn’t have any pockets. I always thought of it as an extra bonus that we as women had but I was so wrong. I was watching Dr.Oz ( I know but I still like him) a while ago and there was a young lady who was diagnosed with breast cancer on his show and according to her the tumor is in the same spot where she kept her cell phone.
I was surprised so I took to the internet, because I needed to know if this was a rare case or if it was common, to my surprise she was not the only one. There are quite a few websites discussing this issue, so Ladies keep your cell phone out of your bra, it can save your life. The ways some people are using their phones today could increase their risk of developing breast cancer. Cell phone’s microwave radiation seeps directly into soft fatty tissue of the breast.
Now I have come across some sites that say this is ridiculous but personally, I would rather be safe then sorry. I dont want to take that chance, so I will take the precaution and put my phone someplace else its no big deal, I dont want to have to wonder will I get cancer if I continue doing this.
We dont go anywhere without our phones and keeping them close is crucial. And if you dont have a blue tooth or a hands free set, you probably keep your phone glued to your ear which is also dangerous. I want to advise all women to keep their cell phones away from their bodies until studies conclude whether close proximity causes cancer.
Most cell phone companies acknowledge some risk. For example, Apple advises keeping the iPhone more than a half-inch from the body. There are warning but they are tucked away inside the manual on the very last page in fine print so its easy to overlook.
“The cell phone companies, now say keep the cell phone away from the skin,” and according to some breast cancer survivors and the doctors who treat them, women should declare the bra a “no phone zone” before it’s too late.
