(NaturalNews) An influential European committee known as the Council of Europe has ruled that cell phones and wireless internet connections pose a risk to human health and should subsequently be banned from schools. The committee concluded that immediate action was necessary to protect the children from the potential dangers, releasing a report that acts as a call to arms. The decision comes after mounting evidence has linked mobile phones, in addition to electromagnetic fields, to a number of harsh health ailments. With such a powerful group calling for bans on harmful electronics, it is highly possible that it will not only become law in the European Union, but across the globe as well.

In the committee's report, parallels were drawn between mobile phones and previous items thought to be safe by the mainstream media community. The report warns against repeating mistakes that were made due to the slow medical recognition of toxic substances such as asbestos, tobacco smoking and lead in petrol. Studies, along with the backing of many experts, have generated evidence that cell phones may be the asbestos of the future -- the sleeping toxic health giant. Going beyond mobile phones, the report also highlighted the dangers of common household electronics such as cordless telephones and baby monitors. Both pieces of technology rely on similar technology and have become commonplace among citizens of the EU and abroad. The report also discusses the numerous studies conducted on the health consequences of such technologies.

In addition, a multinational study conducted by the World Health Organization found that heavy mobile phone usage significantly increases the risk of brain and salivary gland tumors. The research was expansive, involving 12,800 people in 13 countries between 2000 and 2004. The results were both accepted into a mainstream scientific journal and were also quite telling of the dangers associated with cell phone risk. This study, however, is but one of many studies linking mobile phone use to tumors. Research led by Dr Siegal Sadetzki, an epidemiologist at Gertner Institute, Chaim Sheba Medical Center, Israel, found that those who heavily use their cell phone had a 50% higher risk of developing a parotid tumor. A government study found similar abnormal brain responses with brain cell activity increasing just 50 minutes after being exposed to cell phone radiation. The researchers discuss the fact that the effects of increase in brain activity are not known, which may lead to long-term consequences when it comes to cell phone use.

While there may be controversy over the studied effects of cell phone use, one thing is for sure: the long-term effects of cell phones are frightening at the very least. It may take a decade or more, but the heavy usage of mobile phones may ignite a wave of cancer and tumors among citizens of the world. This epidemic may be coupled with the stinging regret that the world did not heed the warnings of many experts and all the studies highlighting the dangers of cell phone use.
