New research suggests that keeping your phone that close to your skin greatly increases your susceptibility to the phone radiation. Dr Devra Davis started her research after noticing the trend of women keeping phones in their bras. She cited a medical case in which a young woman was found to have a mobile phone shaped tumour in her breast.
Writing on his website, Dr Joseph Mercola said: ‘Regardless of the area exposed to the continuous radiation emitted by your cell phone, there’s the potential for harm, although certain areas are clearly more vulnerable than others. ‘For example, research published in 2009 showed evidence that wearing a cell phone on your hip may weaken an area of your pelvis.’
