Mobile phones release electromagnetic radiation because they also use radio frequency (rf) waves to make and receive calls while you use data at 3G, 4G and 5G.
What is radiation?
Radiation is energy that travels through space in the form of particles and waves. Mobile phone radiations are small because they have low power or concise range.
Are mobile radiations harmful to humans?
As per movie 2.0, radiations from mobile phone towers are very harmful and dangerous for humans as well as birds. But we haven’t encountered any such cases in the recent past. Is the claim made in the movie valid or not? Let’s check the validation of their statements.
After numerous studies and research, there is no fix or permanent evidence or results of mobile phone radiation causing any long-term effect on the health of humans, such as cancer. The chance of long-term harmful effects from using cell phones is meagre.
Mobile phone radiation might have some short-term ill effects on human health. A few of these are listed below:
- The blood pressure level rises while using the phone, but it becomes normal after you stop using it.
- Light tiredness after elongated use
- Leads to minor headache
- It causes brain warming after prolonged use, and you can reduce the overuse of mobiles.
But what about birds?
You might have heard about the decline in bird population over the last 20-30 years; what is the reason for its decline? Is it due to mobile radiations or radio frequency waves?
You may have seen in the movie 2.0 that the bird’s population is declining daily. Many birds have become extinct, and some endangered species are on the verge of becoming extinct. Pagan reed-warbler, North Island piopio, Lord Howe Gerygone and Bewicks’s swan, Dunlin, Goldeneye, and Snew are some of the extinct and endangered species of birds, respectively.
According to the movie 2.0, the only reason behind the decline in bird population is radiation and radio frequency waves transmitted from cell phone towers. What are your views and opinions regarding this? Can mobile radiation kill birds?
Are mobile towers solely responsible for the decline?
Several questions arise in people’s minds regarding this after watching the movie 2.0. Here are some points that may help to quench and satisfy your curiosity.
Ornithologists say there is no clear and conclusive scientific evidence that cell phone towers are the main reason behind the decline. That means there are some other factors or reasons behind their decline.
Many experts believe that growth and development in agriculture, such as the green revolution, led to increased use of pesticides, insecticides, and other chemical fertilisers, which led to a decrease in the insect population across the globe.
As insects are birds’ primary food, birds can’t feed adequately due to the decline in the insect population.
As a consequence of the decrease in the insect population, the bird population is also declining. Other apparent reasons are urbanisation, climate change, deforestation, etc.
Wildlife and bird conservation are critical environmental issues. To put the whole blame on mobile towers without any scientific evidence is naive, so what movie 2.0 shows is entirely misleading. It has missed the important social message that it can give. Saying anything out of the blue is wholly wrong.
