Cell Phones May Cause Cataracts

A study conducted by Israeli researchers found a new link between microwave radiation, similar to the type found in cellular phones, and the development of cataracts. At least one kind of damage seems to accumulate over time and not heal, confirming the belief that length of exposure is possibly just as important as the intensity of the radiation. What’s interesting is that this particular damage is not caused by heating, causing the researchers to call for change in the existing exposure guidelines for microwave radiation. They believe the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) standard used by cell phone companies to measure levels of radiation is not sufficient to indicate levels of safety.
