A life without cell phones and smartphones – hard to imagine, right? But haven’t you ever wondered whether you’re increasing your risk of cancer with constant use?

For years, researchers have been trying to find out whether cell phones or smartphones can cause cancer. Sometimes the answer is “yes”, sometimes “no”. For example, the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer has rated the high-frequency electromagnetic fields generated by mobile phone use as “possibly carcinogenic” since 2013. This puts them on par with pickled vegetables and coffee.

For the Federal Office for Radiation Protection, however, using cell phones and smartphones does not pose an increased cancer risk. It is true that their radiation can heat up body tissue. However, it cannot electrically charge atoms or molecules and, therefore, neither alters genetic material nor causes cancer. According to a recent study, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also sees no link between device radiation and an increased risk of cancer.

So far, however, no reliable laboratory or animal studies have proven that electromagnetic radiation, including cell phone radiation, increases cancer risk. However, there are studies on the subject in which certain population groups are observed over a longer period of time. Based on this, cell phone radiation is classified as “possibly carcinogenic,” as brain tumors have occurred more frequently in people who owned a cell phone at an early age. However, the data is controversial among experts. To date, it is neither certain nor completely and definitively refuted whether cell phone radiation increases the risk of cancer or not.
But even if it currently appears that cell phones and smartphones do not increase the risk of cancer, you don’t have to be constantly exposed to radiation.
