  • It has not been prov en entirely true, but constant exposure to radio waves could cause brain damage, but it's not an immediate effect, it's more of prolonged an strong waves consistently. But it has yet to be undeniably scientifically provedAlso it says that parents should go and get there child checked. Go and see your child's phone and see how many texts and calls they may have if it isallot go and tell them you are worried. If sudden acts or you fell somethings wrong with the way they are acting check them don't make it seem that you think there dumb but that you love them and is worried. Thank You

They can cause brain damage and tumours.. Also they are noisy and loud.ans2. Microwave signals would only cause damage if they were very strong. Serious studies have found no evidence to suggest e.g. that cell-phones cause tumors or brain damage. [So you can't blame that for .. ].The second suggestion is absurd, as noise uses a pressure/velocity method of propagation, whereas microwaves use the electromagnetic spectrum and have much too high a frequency to be heard, even by dogs or bats.
