What are the health effects of Mobile Phones?

Mobile phones emit and receive low level microwave radiation. The
levels comply with health exposure limits and there is no conclusive
evidence that they pose a significant health risk to humans.
Nevertheless, there are studies that its long time use can cause
memory loss, especially in children.

The children were likely to be most at risk and should be discouraged from using mobile phones. As a result, the UK government prepared a leaflet, now given out with every phone sold, advising users to keep calls brief and to discourage children from using mobile phones except in emergencies.

Digital phones have generally replaced analogue phones. These emit lower levels of radiation, but because the radiation is pulsed, it is possible that it may be equally or more damaging.

Various studies have associated the use of mobile phones with:
tingling sensation in the head
heat or pressure of the temple
ear ache
eye problems including distortion of vision
memory loss
blood pressure
Changes in the brain's electrical activity
Sleep problems
Learning problems
Breaches of the blood-brain barrier (connected with diseases such as Alzheimer\'s)
Other problems associated with the use of mobile phones

The links between using a mobile phone when driving and road accidents is clear. A driver's attention is needed at all times.

What about cordless phones?
Questions over the safety of mobile phones have inevitably led to
questions over the safety of cordless phones. Like mobile phones,
cordless phones use radio signals to communicate with their base
station. With cordless phones however, the base station, normally the handset cradle, is usually only metres away. The signals sent by cordless phones are therefore much weaker than those sent by mobile phones.

The power radiated by cordless phones is only 8% of that from mobile phones. Therefore, it follows that if there is any risk to health from cordless phones, it will be substantially less than that from mobile phones.

I have also read in some magazine that mobilephone signals can cause a brain tumor and we should use Headset to avoid happening this. What will happen to those people who have housed near to signal towers?
