Hi Shanderia

I have just read your article: You may be allergic to parts of cell phone.  It is not far fetched for people to develop rashes after using cell phones, in fact I know people who cannot even use a cell phone because of the adverse health effects of exposure to electro magnetic radiation.  These people often develop rashes when people nearby use cell phones or when they are exposed to radiation from cell phone mast antennas etc.

There is an important need to correct your statement - "Numerous studies have concluded there's no risk of developing brain cancer from cell phone use".  This is not accurate because no study yet has proven that cell phones are safe and there is no risk.  Numerous studies, most of them financed and influenced by the cell phone industry have not shown adverse effects of cell phone radiation yet numerous studies by independent scientists have shown that there are indeed many very serious health effects.

The document below your article was written by Dr. Neil Cherry in 2001.  It should provide you with a much more detailed picture about the health effects of cell phones and electro magnetic radiation.  I hope that you will report these facts and provide your readers with a warning about the true dangers of cell phones.

Yours sincerely

Martin Weatherall



You may be allergic to parts of cell phone

If you rate your cell phone use as excessive and are experiencing a red, itchy rash around your ears or face, guess what? You may have "mobile phone dermatitis.
It may sound far-fetched. And, it certainly isn't the first time cell phone use has gotten a bad rap. Ongoing debates persist on whether cell phone use may lead to brain cancer because of electromagnetic radiation. Numerous studies have concluded there's no risk of developing brain cancer from cell phone use. However, some scientists point out cell phones haven't been around long enough for conclusive results.

Mobile phone dermatitis isn't being hotly debated for now. Developing a rash versus a chronic condition such as cancer is something most people might just take their chances with.

New disorder

About a week ago, the British Association of Dermatologists issued a warning about this new allergic skin disorder. Researchers became aware of the problem when several published case reports of patients with rash symptoms on their ears and face revealed the rash was caused by nickel in mobile phone handsets.

The researchers have sounded the alarm for doctors to be aware of the condition to avoid misdiagnoses and prompt consumers to get proper treatment.

A study by Brown University researchers in Rhode Island published this year shows 10 of 22 popular mobile phone handsets contain nickel.

Common ailment

Mayo Clinic reports nickel allergy is one of the most common causes of allergic contact dermatitis. It is associated with jewelry, coins, watches, earrings, necklace clasps and much more.

Sensitivity to nickel is lifelong and may be genetic. Often, the symptoms mimic other skin woes. Those aware of their nickel sensitivity probably know what to do at home to manage the condition. Those not sure of their status should get a patch test conducted by an allergy specialist or dermatologist. For treatment, Mayo Clinic recommends over-the-counter corticosteroids and antihistamines, but avoid antibiotic creams.

This bit of news is more reason to limit cell phone use or at least purchase hands-free equipment for talking. Either way would lead to safer conversations.

Cell phone radiation poses a serious biological and health risk:

The Issue:


Thousands of people are using cell phones for hours each day. They are exposing a very sensitive organ, their brain, to higher mean intensities than military personnel are exposed to when repairing radar. The military personnel show significant increases in cancer and a wide range of illnesses. Even at the very low mean levels that people experience living within 10 km of radio and TV towers, significant increases in cancer has been observed.


Analogue cell phones emit an analogue modulated RF/MW signal similar to an FM radio or TV signal. The digital cell phones radiate a pulse RF/MW signal similar to radar. Biological and epidemiological effects from EMR exposure across the spectrum show the same or similar effects.


Many people continue to drive while talking on their cell phones. Attention deficit and neurological effects on the user's brain make accidents much more likely.


Very young children and teenagers are becoming regular to heavy users of cell phones while their brains and bodies are in a much more vulnerable state than elderly people. With cancer and neurodegenerative disease latencies of decades, the possible adverse effects will take some time to become evident. By which time it will be too late for thousands of people.


There is growing concern about cell phone interference with cardiac pacemakers. If cell phone signals can interfere with an electronic pacemaker, then it is likely to also interfere with human hearts that are arrhythmically unstable.


Biophysical Principles:


Radiant energy is absorbed into human bodies according to three main processes. The first is the Aerial Effect where bodies and body parts receive and absorb the RF/MW signal with resonant absorption that is a function of the size of the body parts and the wavelength of the RF/MW signal. For an adult male about 1.8 m tall the optimal absorption frequency is close to 70 MHz, Figure 1. This has a wavelength of 4.3m. The body acts like a half-wave dipole interacting strongly with a half wavelength close to the body size. A monkey interacts with a wavelength of 1m and a half wavelength of 0.5m. This is similar to the absorbency of a human child.


The Aerial effect also relates to body parts such as arms and heads. A typical adult head has a width of 15 cm. This is a half wavelength for a 1 GHz microwave signal, close to that used by most cell phones.



Figure 1: Average SAR for 3 species exposed to 10 W/m2 with E vector parallel to the long axis of the body, from Durney et al. (1978).


Cellphone-type radiation is in the 0.9 to 1.8 GHz range, i.e. 0.9 x 109 to 1.8 x 109 Hz. Hence according to Figure 1 neither children nor adults are close to the optimum absorption rate but babies and infants bodies, whose dimensions lie between "monkey" and "mouse", are close to the optimal absorption for cell phone-type radiation.


A person with a height h (m), acting as an aerial in an RF electric field E (V/m) at a carrier frequency f (MHz), has a current induced in them which flows to earth through their feet, given by, Gandhi et al.



Ih = 0.108 h2 E f (mA)


This induced current flows mainly through high water content organs. In flowing to ground the current passes through the ankles. These consist mainly of low conductivity bones and tendons and have an effective cross-sectional area of 9.5 cm2 for an adult, despite the actual physical area is of the order of 40 cm2. The formula for Ih also allows for the effective absorption area of the person, which is somewhat greater than their actual cross-sectional area, because of the attraction of the surrounding field to an earthed conductor. These aerial considerations are more pertinent to whole-body exposures to cell sites.


Cell phone aerials form digital phones typically occupy the length of the body of the phone and extend a few centimeters out of the top of the phone body. Cellphone radiation for the phone's aerial is quite close to the user's head and can be intense enough to cause a warming sensation.



Figure 2: The dielectric constant and conductivity of typical biological tissue as a function of frequency, Schwan (1985).


The second mechanism involves the coupling of the signal to the tissue as the signal penetrates the tissue and interacts with the cells and layers of tissue. This process is related to the dielectric constant and conductivity of the tissue types, which vary significantly with the carrier frequency, Figure 2.


The third biophysical absorption process involves resonant absorption by biological systems in the brain and cells. Resonant absorption occurs when a system with a natural frequency is stimulated by an imposed signal of a similar frequency or harmonic frequency. Radio and TV receivers use both the aerial principle and the resonant absorption principle. The aerial resonantly absorbs the carrier frequency and carries it as an induced current to the receiver. Here a tuned circuit oscillating at the same frequency resonantly absorbs the carrier wave and uses decoding circuitry to extract the encoded message contained in the amplitude, frequency or digital modulation imprinted on the carrier wave.


Figure 3: Comparison of the frequency spectra of the human EEG from 260 young males showing the 5%, 50% and 95%ile bands, adapted from Gibbs and Gibbs (1951), and Schumann Resonance peaks, from Polk (1982).


Figures 4 and 5 confirm the relationship shown in Figure 3, using independently derived spectra of the daytime human EEG, Figure 4 and the Schumann Resonance spectrum, Figure 5. The figures have been aligned to have a common horizontal frequency scale.


Figure 4: A typical EEG spectrum, with the Schumann Resonance peaks superimposed.



Figure 5: Daytime Schumann Resonance Spectrum, Polk (1982).


Figures 3-5 show that the frequency range of the primary peaks of the Schumann Resonances coincide with the frequency range of the human EEG. Upper Schumann peaks also associated with small peaks in the EEG. This shows a resonant interaction and supports the probability of an actual use by the brain or the Schumann Resonance signal. Figure 6 shows that this occurs in a study showing a significant dose-response correlation between the intensity of the 8-10 Hz Schumann Peak and human reaction times.



Figure 6: Human reaction times as a function of Schumann Resonance 8-10 Hz Relative Intensity, for 49,500 subjects tested during 18 days in September 1953, at the German Traffic exhibition in Munich. Derived from data in Figure 3 of König (1974b). Trend: t = 10.414, 2-tailed p<0.001.


Cellphone radiation is shown to interact with human EEG patterns and to alter them and to change reaction times. The GSM signal has a pulse frequency of 217 Hz and a modulation at 8.34 Hz. This is in the Schumann Resonance and EEG spectral primary frequency range.


Effects shown for electromagnetic radiation, especially radio and radar signals, but also electrical occupations:


Such signals have been shown to:


Neurological Activity:









Cardiological Activity:




Immune System Activity:



Reproductive Activity:










Genotoxic Activity:














Cancer Epidemiology:



These biological and health effects are consistent with the biological understanding that brains, hearts and cells are sensitive to electromagnetic signals because they use electromagnetic signals for their regulation, control and natural processes, including those processes monitored by the EEG and ECG. There is overwhelming evidence that EMR is genotoxic, alters cellular ions, neurotransmitters and neurohormones, and interferes with brain and heart signals, and increases cancer.


Cell Phone Radiation Research:


For years the cell phone companies and government authorities have assured us that cell phone are perfectly safe. For example, they claim that the particular set of radiation parameter associated with cell phones are not the same as any other radio signal and therefore earlier research does not apply. They also mount biased review teams who falsely dismiss any results that indicate adverse biological and health effects and the flawed pre-assumption that the only possible effect is tissue heating. There is a very large body of scientific research that challenges this view. Now we have published research, primarily funded by governments and industry that shows that cell phone radiation causes the following effects:


Neurological Activity:













Figure 7: Prevalence of symptoms for Norwegian mobile phone users, mainly analogue, with various categories of length of calling time per day, Mild et al. (1998).



Figure 8: Prevalence of symptoms for Swedish mobile phone users, mainly digital, with various categories of length of calling time per day, Mild et al. (1998).


These are the same symptoms that have frequently been reported as "Microwave Sickness Syndrome" or "Radiofrequency Sickness Syndrome", Baranski and Czerski (1976) and Johnson-Liakouris (1998).


Cardiac Activity:




Hormone Activity:



Figure 9: A significant reduction in Thyrotropin (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) during cell phone use, de Seze et al. (1998).




Reproductive Activity:




Genotoxic Activity:














High Exposure RR = 1.07 (0.32-2.66) n = 3

Moderate Exposure RR = 1.18 (0.36-2.92) n = 3

High/Mod vs Low RR = 1.13 (0.49-2.31) n = 6


This project underestimated cancer rates by using a high cancer reference group.




Duration of digital subscription <1 yr 1-2yrs ³ 3 yrs

Relative to reference group SIR 0.7 0.9 1.2

Relative to <1 yr group RR 1.0 1.29 1.71


Other cancers are set out in "Table 2" below. Over 67 % of phone users had used their phones for 2 years or less. The reference group had a higher than average cancer rate than the age range of cell phone users, underestimating the cancer rates. This is shown by Standard Incidence Ratios (SIR) of some groups being as little as 0.6. For example SIR for users for <1 year is 0.7.




Table two shows that even with little cellphone use, and even with the use of a high cancer reference group, there are several elevated cancers approaching significance: Testicular cancer SIR = 1.12, 95%CI: 0.97-1.30, Cervical cancer, SIR = 1.34, 95%CI: 0.95-1.85, Female Pharynx cancer, SIR 2.43, 95%CI: 0.65-6.22, Esophagus cancer, SIR = 1.53, 95%CI: 0.31-4.46 and female breast cancer, SIR = 1.08, 95%CI: 0.91-1.26.





To date over 50 studies have shown adverse biological or human health effects specifically from cell phone radiation. These research results to date clearly show that cell phones and cell phone radiation are a strong risk factor for all of the adverse health effects identified for EMR because they share the same biological mechanisms. The greatest risk is to cell phone users because of the high exposure to their heads and the great sensitivity of brain tissue and brain processes. DNA damage accelerates cell death in the brain, advancing neurodegenerative diseases and brain cancer. Brain tumour is already an identified risk factor. Cell phones are carried on people's belts and in breast pockets. Hence liver cancer, breast cancer and testicular cancer became probable risk factors.


Altered attention and cognition, as well as the diversion of talking on a phone while driving is a significant risk factor for accidents and fatal accidents.


Some cardiac pacemakers are susceptible to active cell phone signals, recommending keeping cell phones away from hearts and pacemakers.


Because the biological mechanisms are shown and EMR has been observed to significantly increase the following effects, there is extremely strong evidence to conclude that cell phones are a risk factor for breast, liver, testicular and brain cancer. It is also probable that we will observe a very wide range of other effects including cardiac, neurological and reproductive illness and death. Since cell phone radiation cause many cell damages including DNA and chromosome damage, all of these effects will also be caused by cell sites.


Dose-response studies of neurological, cardiac, reproductive and cancer effects in human populations all point to a near zero exposure level of no effect, Cherry (2000). Since cellphone radiation mimics RF/MW radiation effects which mimics ELF biological and health, the adverse effects occur across the spectrum and includes cellphone radiation, with a safe exposure level of zero.


Hence a risk reduction and public health protection based on keeping exposure below a level that doubles the risk, identifies 0.1 m W/cm2 as the maximum acceptable exposure. This should allow a mean life-time exposure to be less than 0.01m W/cm2 which is necessary to reduce the risk of neurological effects. The lower level is necessary because of the exquisite sensitivity of the brain.
