Indole 3 carbinol powder contains I3C which can lower the risk of many types of cancer. 

Many people have heard that radiation can cause cancer. But there are hundreds of kinds of radiation, from the ultraviolet rays in the sun, to the cell phone signal, to the nuclear explosion. Not all radiation can cause cancer.

Cancer occurs from genetic mutations. To determine whether radiation can cause cancer, it depends on whether the radiation causes genetic mutations.

Indole 3 Carbinol Powder and Carcinogenic Factors - Ⅷ

Radiation is divided into two broad categories: ionizing radiation and non-ionizing radiation. The high energy of ionizing radiation can directly cause DNA damage and gene mutations, which may cause cancer. Non-ionizing radiation has low energy, which is not enough to directly cause genetic mutations, so it is generally considered to be non-carcinogenic.

There are rumors that mobile phones, microwave ovens, high-voltage towers and Wi-Fi can cause cancer. But all four are non-ionizing radiation. Such common radiations are generally weak in energy and are not enough to cause direct damage to DNA, so in theory they are unlikely to cause cancer directly. 

In order to study whether cell phone signal towers are carcinogenic, scientists compared the cancer incidence of workers and ordinary people who built and repaired towers for a long time. If the electromagnetic radiation generated by the tower is really carcinogenic, then obviously these workers who are intimately in contact with the tower every day are the most dangerous. The conclusion of the study is that there is no difference.
