Manned Trip To Mars: Current Radiation Shielding Not Going To Help

Data from Curiosity's Radiation Assessment Detector suggests that current radiation shielding available on spacecrafts won’t be enough to protect human explorers from radiation exposure during a manned trip to Mars.

Cancer Radiation Treatment With No Harmful Side Effects

A team of researchers at the University of Missouri appear to have found out a way to treat cancer using boron neutron capture therapy without any harmful side effects.

X-Ray Vision, Body Scanning DNA-Destroying Terahertz Chips Coming to Mobile Phones?

You know those scanners implemented by the TSA that can see through your clothing? They utilize terahertz (THz) radiation and it turns out that this could literally "unzip" the DNA molecule. And now they're thinking of implementing the technology in mobile devices.

Radiation Watch $46 Pocket Geiger Counter for iPhone

Japan is still recovering from the meltdown, earthquake, and tsunami in Fukushima, so it makes sense that public fears over radiation are at an...

Children Absorb Double The Cell Phone Radiation As Adults

In fact, the study is saying that "cell phoens used in the shirt or pants pocket exceed FCC exposure guidelines and that children absorb twice as much microwave radiation from phones as do adults."

Scosche RDTX portable radiation detector for iPod and iPhone

Wouldn't it be useful if you could measure radiation without some super expensive industrial equipment? Scosche thinks so and that's why it has announced the RDTX portable radiation detector.

Tips To Prevent Cellphone Radiation Brain Nukage

The dangers of cellphone radiation have been a hot topic lately, particularly after the World Health Organization gave the sobering announcement that cellphone radiation could possibly increase the risk of brain cancer. Additionally, research came out that suggested cellphones are responsible for killing off bees. They aren’t getting a good rep right now. While I was scared for a few minutes and considered ditching my Blackberry and running into the woods to live in a shack, I realized I love convenience too much. They're not going to turn nearby cell tower squirrels into radioactive freaks just yet, but there is some concern. So instead, here are some ways to keep your brain, and other body parts, safe from potentially hazardous cellphone radiation.

FACT: Brain Cancer Risk Increases With Cell Phone Use

We know that there has been a lot of back and forth going around concerning the situation surrounding the facts of wether or not Cell Phones, and the radiation they emit, can potentially cause cancer. Well, the WHO said it, so it must be official now. Cell phone radiation is possibly carcinogenic and could be linked to some cases of cancer, case and point.

Microwave Photons in Cellphones Could Damage Human Tissue

The controversy over whether signals from cellphones and cellphone towers cause damage to biological tissue continues to rage on, irking skeptical researchers and consumers alike. Adding to the debate, a researcher from Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico suggests that microwaves sent out from cell phones can interact with human tissue in ways that haven’t been considered before.

The DIY Geiger Counter That Automatically Tweets Its Readings

Radiation is poisoning is no laughing matter. Microsoft technical program manager Fabien Royer speaks from experience, seeing how he was in France during the 1986 Chernobyl disaster. Now that we are looking at the Fukashima plant, Royer has taken matters into his own hands and build a Geiger counter.

Cellular phone industry’s fate coming May 18th

Is there a possible risk of tumors associated with the use of mobile phones? According to Microwave News, the Interphone study results will be released on May 18. To be published in the International Journal of Epidemiology June issue, the paper is scheduled to be released early for "advanced access" individuals on the 18th. This $30M study is the largest and most expensive to date. Originally to be completed in 2005, but delayed due to a disagreement in interpretation of data on the findings of "an increased incidence of tumors among long-term users of mobile phones."

The 20 most hazardous cellphones on the market

As controversial as it may be, Cellphone radiation and its effects on the human body, more specifically the brain, have been disputed over the decades. No consensus has been made, and simply because there's too many players and a lot of damn money on the line. But by being your own judge, going by what you “feel” is right, like if you get a headache, or nervous sensations, or even rashes when using radio frequency devices, than you probably shouldn't be using them. On the other hand, it may do nothing to you at all other than make your life easier. Regardless of your experiences with the use of such devices, here is a list of 20 phones currently available on the market

Cell Phones Reduce Hip Bone Density Too

You know how they say men shouldn't keep their cell phones in their pockets, because the radiation can affect their fertility? As a result,...
