Cell Phones Damage DNA, Brain & Sperm
New independent studies confirm earlier findings that cell phones can disrupt DNA, impair brain function and lower sperm count.
What's the Latest Development?
New, independent studies appear to confirm earlier Council of Europe findings that the pulsed digital signals of cell phones disrupt DNA, impair brain function and lower sperm count. The new proof was revealed at a meeting convened by the Environmental Health Trust, with the Turkish Cancer Sciety, and Gazi University. Among it were studies by scientists in Turkey, Russia and Israel, who have investigated a variety of biological effects triggered by cell phones.
What's the Big Idea?
Two years after false accusations against scientists who described exposure-induced DNA breaks, the new results show that these breaks are indeed real. Just four hours of exposure to RF-EMF disrupts the ability of human brain cells to repair damaged genes, according to research by Prof. Nesrin Seyhan, a WHO and NATO advisor. Other new results from Australia show damage to human sperm. The evidence justifies precautionary measures to reduce the risks," says Prof. Wilhelm Mosgoeller from the Medical University of Vienna.
Are we trying to solve too many problem with technological solutions?
- Technology has given humanity the amazing ability to fix almost any problem, conditioning us to search for technological remedies to what might be social problems.
- Alleviating social inequity is a problem that technology must necessarily attempt to solve, but technology alone cannot shape how humans assemble their societies.
- Only by emphasizing the primary place of individual identity, human dignity, and universal values like empathy and emotion, can we hope to solve global issues that, so far, technology has been unable to conquer.

With his collected letters recently being published, it's time to revisit this extraordinary thinker.
- Though the British philosopher died in 1973, his work continues to make an impact.
- A recently published collection, The Collected Letters Alan Watts, is a deep dive into his personal correspondences.
- Watts was an early proponent for spreading Eastern philosophy to Western culture.
