Cellphones can be harmful

Are Cell phones are harmful to our Health?
As the life passing I am finding it is literally impossible to live without my cell phone. Now day’s cell phones not only serve to receive and dial a call it has all the entertainment add on with it. It has everything you could ever want from radio, MP3 players, internet, live TV, GPS navigation, gaming and other things. So cell phones occupies all my day there is no prospect for anything else. I can be anywhere in the world and still can be connected to everything and everyone I want (provided the network is good enough). But that’s not I want to discuss here. Over the last few days I am worried about side effects caused by cell phones. I read somewhere that cell phones emits electro magnetic radiation which can be fatal for humans as they can cause cancer.
I was really worried reading this article, then I saw one video on You Tube which shows an egg can be boiled up if it is placed in between two cell phones. That was scary because the title of the video says imagine what your brain has to go through when you are on the cell phone. On top of it one of my cousins had strong feeling that the headaches he used to have were because of the cell phones it self as when he wasn’t using his cell phone foe a week he never had that pain. And this news was really scary for me.
I decided to dig all the information I can about cell phone’s EMR i.e. Electromagnetic Radiations and their effects on human body. But what I found is two contradictory opinions. The World Health Organization which considered the reports from scientific and medical comities, states that the health effects such as headaches are very unlikely to be caused by cellular phones. According to the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Associations (CITA), Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is a way of measuring the quantity of radio frequency energy that is absorbed by the body. And the phone to pass the FCC certification only if their SAR value is less than 1.6 watts per kilogram. In Europe the SAR level is capped at @ W/Kg. In India there seem to be no such standards employed such, if there are already I couldn’t find any information on them.
When you hear from World Health Organization you should feel much safer about cell phones because World Health Organization is most responsible outfit regarding human health. But trouble is that there are also some people and some responsible organizations who thinks that the Electro Magnetic Radiation which use microwave range are emitted from the cell phones and they are strong enough to be very harmful for our brain and other parts of the body. Only trouble here is they don’t have strong proof to support this. But I think just because they can’t prove it, their theory can not be overruled and neglected. We need to be more careful here on with our usage of cell phones. And it must be these reports that made some of the countries like Austria, France Germany, and Sweden recommend their citizens to minimize the use of cell phones.
I will try using my cell phone as minimum as possible but that could not be the permanent solution as I said earlier life without cell phones is getting impossible. I don’t know how but I am trying to find a solution to use the phone as well as keep safe distance from their electro magnetic radiations.
I think all the cell phone manufacturing companies should take initiative to reduce the concerns people have regarding these radiation emitted by cell phones. Then can just reveal the SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) values along with the other specifications of the cell phones. As for customers we can make sure that will buy only FCC certified cell phones. I am sure all the measure brands are FCC certified so there should not be any worries.
I am trying to find now the SAR values for different models of different brands of cell phones and try to find out if my cell phone is safe enough.

Tips to Gain Weight

How to Gain Weight?
1. Don't let over 4 hours go by without eating. Our body needs a continuous supply of energy since it's always on. For example our heart is always beating, blood is always circulating, when we make even smallest of movements your bones and muscles are moving).
2. When we don’t eat for long time or skip meals, we deny our body the energy it requires to keep on going.
3. As a result our body receives this energy from what it already accumulated like from our muscles and fat.
4. The best way to prevent our body from losing any important tissue is to consistently eat regular meals and if we are trying to gain new muscle tissues, then meal timing is very critical.
5. Sometimes we feel like if we "eat like crazy", it will help in gaining weight or if we eat one big meal a day and consider that "eating a lot", it won’t work either. A steady stream of healthy meals is the key.
6. Eat several foods at once. For snacks, aim for at least three food groups like a whole grain, fruit and nuts. This provides your body with a broader spectrum of nutrients to work with throughout the day.
7. Boost your calorie intake healthfully. The best way to rack up excess calories without having to eat huge quantities of food and without having to eat junk food is to choose nutrient rich foods that pack a big calorie punch for a small amount.
8. The best options are nuts, seeds and unsweetened dried fruit, whole grains and lean proteins.
9. Drink your calories. Good choices include 100% fruit juice, low fat milk or milk alternatives like soy milk.
10. Eat right before bed. Sleep time is when a lot of our healing, repair and regeneration work takes place. It's like rush hour for building muscle and lean tissue, so eating a healthy snack right before bed ensures a fresh supply of nutrients available to go to work inside the body. Once again, it is a great timing.
Try this for 200 days and don’t give up in between. This will surely going to work for you.

BMI = Weight (kg)/Height (m2)

When you get the answer after calculation, compare the answer with this,
If your answer is,

25 to 30 -------- Overweight
30 to 35 --------- Obese class I

Everyone I meet tells me that I am underweight, of course it is not a rocket science, I can look myself in mirror and tell that I am underweight. But I never understood, what is the normal weight? If I start working on my weight how will I come to know that I am not underweight anymore. So I consult the doctor not only to know how to gain weight but also to know what is the norms of weights for human beings.
So I came to know about the “body mass index” (BMI) which is a statistical measure of the weight of a person scaled according to height. BMI is calculated as the individual's body weight divided by the square of their height. In normal words it means what your should be as per your height. And it can be calculate by everyone. Just put your weight and height in following formula and then compare the answer with the “Body Mass Index” table.

BMI = Weight (kg)/Height(m2)

If your answer is,
Less than 16.5 ---- severely underweight
16.5 to 18.5 ---- underweight
18.5 to 25 ----- normal

BMI is frequently used to assess how much an individual's body weight departs from what is normal or desirable for a person of his or her height.
So just calculate your BMI and find out if you are underweight or not, I found out I am underweight and I am working on it now.
