    Cell phones do not use or produce microwave radiation. They use radio waves as a transmission medium. Radio waves are non-ionising radiation and so it is very unlikely that radio waves will do any damage to your skin cells. There is however some relatively weak evidence that living around radio wave transmission towers can cause cancer and other health problems which is likely where any stigma comes from. The only problems mobile phones have been shown to cause is a lower sperm count in men when kept in trowels near the testis, due to the heat generated.

    Cell phones use microwaves.

    Um OP there's been a link between brain tumours and mobile phones due to the headset being so close to the brain.
    That's because the vibrations of microwaves are the same as vibrations of all surface molecules which causes a heating effect that is quite bad lol.

    I learnt this in physics and havent done physics for a few months so use what I said so search up whether this is correct or not

    In 2015 the European Commission Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks concluded that, overall, the epidemiologic studies on cell phone radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation exposure do not show an increased risk of brain tumors or of other cancers of the head and neck region (1).27 May 2016

    Thank me later, crackpot.
