Cell Phones May Reduce Bone Density, Holsters Still Dorky
A recent study claims that those who carry cell phones in holsters on their belts may be at risk of having their pelvic bone density reduced. The report states that electromagnetic fields emitted by cell phones may have a correlation with reducing bone density that could lead to health problems.
At this stage, the study is far from scientific, due to the small sample size of the tested, but this is nothing new. We already know that cell phones emit radiation that over prolonged periods of continuous use may lead to cancer. This study further supports research on the effects of cell phone use on the human body which will become more and more important as cell phone usage starts from early childhood to old age.
We rely on our mobile devices for so much of our lives nowadays that even a study such as this that did show adverse effects on bone density reduction would probably not sway people from ditching them.
The conclusion of how dorky cell phone holsters look still holds up, and hopefully this new finding will prompt holster manufacturers to cease production immediately. On the other hand, I think women are most protected against this because most women do put their cell phones in their purse or bag, unlike us men, who dork it out.
