If you are not convinced that cell phones pack one ‘big punch’ take a look at this video and then read the report by Doctor Joe Mercola, which follows.
“A 20% increase in brain tumor risk for every year of use.”
Young people under the age of 20 more than five times as likely to develop brain cancer!!!
(August 2009 -extract)
…Ever growing scientific research corroborates the suspicion that information-carrying radio waves transmitted by cell phones and other wireless devices can: -
- Cause brain tumors
- Harm blood cells * and cause cellular changes
- Reduce the power of the blood to transmit oxygen and absorb toxic waste.*
- Damage your DNA
- Cause nerve-cell damage
- Accelerate and contribute to the onset of autism , and trigger Alzheimer’s disease
- Damage your eyes
- Cause sleep disruptions, fatigue and headaches
- Can cause deadly damage to a new born baby you are nursing whilst you make a mobile call!!
( * Please visit this link www.bemri.org and view the two videos to see the damage to blood cells caused by just one ten minute call on a mobile phone.)
Researchers Keep Finding Links Between Cell Phone Use, Brain Damage and Cancer
Last year, a well-circulated Swedish study found that people using cell phones doubled their risk of developing brain cancer and acoustic neuroma (a tumor that damages your hearing nerve).
The study also showed that people who started using cell phones before the age of 20 were more than five times as likely to develop brain cancer.
The European Parliament responded by voting 522 to 16 to urge ministers across Europe to impose stricter limits for exposure to radiation from mobile and cordless phones, wi-fi and other radiation-generating devices -- in part because children are particularly vulnerable to the risk.
Dr. Gerd Oberfeld, M.D., the Speaker for Environmental Medicine for the Austrian Medical Association in Vienna, Austria says: -
"The scientific data show, with a high degree of confidence, that mobile phone exposure is associated with an increased brain tumor risk.
The age group below 20 years is facing the greatest risk, which for malignant (deadly) brain tumors is about 400 percent greater, than those who are not exposed.
When we take the long latency period of up to some decades into account, and the fact that large parts of our society, and especially more and more teenagers and even children are using mobile phones on a daily basis, we may well expect a brain tumor epidemic.
From a public health perspective there is an urgent need not only for a wake-up call for our society, but for measures that are able to combat this public health threat effectively, now.”
The cell phone industry’s standard comment has been that "the peer-reviewed scientific evidence has overwhelmingly indicated that wireless devices do not pose a public health risk."
This report exposes that statement for the lie that it is.
In fact, there’s no shortage of evidence showing that cell phone use (and other wireless devices) can be dangerous to your health, and to your child in particular.
As this report points out, even some of the industry’s own research found that cell phones caused brain tumors, and subsequent industry-funded studies from 2000 to 2002 also showed an elevated risk of brain cancer.
***One such study reportedly found a 20 percent increased risk of brain tumor for every year of cell phone use!***
And, if you remove the Telecom industry funded research, then the weight of the evidence overwhelmingly shows that cell phones cause health problems, including, but not limited to:
- Brain tumors
- Eye cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Salivary gland tumors
- Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
Fortunately more and more people are beginning to take the warning signs seriously.
In 2005, the British-based National Radiological Protection Board suggested children younger than age 8 should not be given a cell phone as it risks exposing their young bodies to harmful radiation. Last year Toronto's department of public health followed suit, warning that because of possible side effects from radio frequency radiation, children under 8 should only use a cell phone in emergencies, and teenagers should limit calls to less than 10 minutes.
The U.K., Belgium, Germany, France and Russia have also introduced precautionary policies regarding cell phone usage due to potential health risks.
Few people realize this, but brain cancer has surpassed leukemia as the number one cancer killer in children, and many scientists believe this is directly linked to the exponential increase in cell phone use and other wireless devices.
Australia has seen an increase in pediatric brain cancers of 21 percent in just one decade. This is consistent with studies showing a 40 percent brain tumor increase across the board in Europe and the U.K. over the last 20 years.
These statistics are consistent with many of the scientific research findings.
Another example is the 2003 study published in Environmental Health Perspectives (the journal of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences). They found that rats exhibited serious neuronal brain damage following exposure to radiation from a cell phone, at levels comparable to what you would experience during normal use.
The nerve cell damage was observed in several places within the rats’ brains, including the cortex, hippocampus and basal ganglia.
The authors concluded,
"Intense use of mobile phones by youngsters is a serious consideration. A neuronal damage of the kind described here may not have immediate, demonstrable consequences, even if repeated. In the long run, however, it may result in reduced brain reserve capacity that might be unveiled by other later neuronal disease or even the wear and tear of aging."
(Dr Mercola has a large number of articles on this topic on his website and he also provides access to possible solutions to the problem. However he recommends, as I do that the only safe way to deal with this problem is to ease yourself away from a lifestyle which “needs” a mobile phone. I have three friends/acquaintances who are architects. One of them died a couple of years ago from a brain tumour which lasted just 4 months; a second is in hospital having treatment; whilst the third has no problem - so far! Architects live on the mobile phone!!! Below is an advert for a possible solution for you. You may take it or leave it.
