Awareness Campaign Against Cell Phone Radiation Hazard: Case Study Oman


"Today the question is no longer whether the waves emitted by mobile phones, computers, microwaves, cars, relay antennas are dangerous to health, but how to protect ourselves, to help people proactively manage their health and wellbeing by providing free, clear and reliable precautions about cell phone radiation risks."

Abstract

The fast spread of mobile phone usage is a subject of several polemics in terms of adverse health effect such as cancers, headaches and memory loss as shown by recent research. Cell phone's radiation became one of the most pervasive problems worldwide. With the aim of attracting public attention to this issue and increasing awareness in health's dangers and risks of cell phone radiation a campaign incorporating educational strategies and including a logo and poster design by a student of Dhofar University in Sultanate of Oman was initiated. At the completion of this campaign, a mobile phone's radiation influence on peoples’ health awareness program was developed and implemented through gearing it to the clinics, hospitals, doctor offices, supermarkets and schools.

  1. The real danger and toxicity from non-ionizing radiation has long been recognized by sound science but has been infringing upon big corporate interests.

    It's the same story with ionizing radiation where both the medical establishment and the nuclear reactor industry, and government agencies have been dismissing and hiding the fact that low dose radiation, such as from medical x-rays, is a prime cause of cancer, particularly breast cancer (see The Mammogram Myth by Rolf Hefti - more at TheMammogramMyth.com).

    Non-ionizing radiation, such as from cell phones, pose some of the same physiological activities as from ionizing radiation, causing serious harm.
