The Risks of Using Cell Phones and their Possible Link to Cancer

More than 270 million Americans have cell phones and spend an average of 12½ hours on them each month, despite concerns
of their  effect on the body.

Scientists are urging people to take the risk of cell phone radiation seriously – some saying their effects may be as socially dangerous as cigarettes and asbestos. Neurosurgeon Dr. Keith Black says “There is no way to say if cell phone use is safe. I think that the public has a right to know that there is a potential risk. Environmental factors take decades to see their effect, not years.”

Below are before and after thermal images taken while using a cell phone for a 15 minute conversation. The device not only gives off radiation, but it heats delicate parts of the head and brain above homeostatic normal temperature. To watch the full progression of the thermal video click here.

Could we be exposing ourselves to dangerous radiation with every call?

Thermal Imaging Clip of the Week: FLIR Military Thermal Cameras Give Our Troops Eyes at Night

FLIR Thermal Cameras allow troops to see in complete darkness

Thermal night vision cameras have been used by the military to give troops the ability to patrol at night without the use of lights. This allows troops to detect potential threats while  remaining inconspicuous. Unlike night vision goggles that rely on reflected light, highly sensitive thermal vision cameras use heat signatures to detect anything that retains, or is a source of heat. As seen in the video, the FLIR camera provides situational awareness for the soldiers by detecting the contrasting temperatures of everything in the scene. This provides a clear distinction between the soldiers, the trees and even a plane passing by overhead. Thermal cameras are also very useful during the day to detect differences in heat. provides a variety of thermal cameras for military applications that can be incorporated in vehicles, boats, and aircrafts.
