Israeli study says regular mobile use increases tumour risk

“Regular use of mobile telephones increases the risk of developing tumours, a new scientific study …. revealed on Friday. ” “…the report .. …newspaper put the risk of developing a parotid gland tumour nearly 50 percent higher for frequent mobile phone users — more than 22 hours a month. The risk was still higher if users clamped the phone to the same ear, did not use hands-free devices or were in rural areas.” “Analysis restricted to regular users or to conditions that may yield higher levels of exposure (eg heavy use in rural areas) showed consistently elevated risks,” said an abstract …made available…. The study included 402 benign and 58 malignant incident cases of parotid gland tumour diagnosed in Israel at age 18 years or more, in 2001-2003. The research was ….part of a World Health Organisation project.”

If you’re unlucky enough to be sitting next to certain computer printers in your office, you may as well be sitting next to a cigarette smoker, according to new research….. 

 

toxic particulate matter levels were five times higher inside a non-smoking office building on a workday than they were outside near a freeway. … what was causing this toxic indoor air. ……laser printers. The researchers studied more than 50 such printers and found that half of them emitted tiny particles of toner-like material into the air, in concentrations ranging from low to high….Breathing in these tiny particles has been linked to respiratory illness, heart disease, lung disease and cancer……all used toner instead of ink….”Even very small concentrations can be related to health hazards,” Your risk of exposure, … depends largely on the office building’s ventilation system.

Are You Surrounded by Electronic Smog?

Laser printers are not the only potential risk in your work environment. The electrical fields given off by electronic equipment, including computers, lamps, wiring and more, may also impact your health, according to research ….dubbed “electro-pollution,” charge tiny particles in the air including viruses, bacteria, allergens and more. 

When you breathe in these particles, the electrical charge makes them adhere to the tissue in your lungs and respiratory tract, which can cause infection. Asthma, the flu and other respiratory illnesses can then result.

You can reduce your risk, the researcher said, by making sure laptop computers are “earthed” and unplugging electrical equipment when it’s not being used.

The air isn’t the only thing to worry about in your office. Your computer keyboard is also potentially hazardous…. you may be transferring two or more types of bacteria onto your fingertips while you type. …researchers found that every computer keyboard was contaminated with two or more microorganisms…the bacteria that was found was the type that could be detrimental to hospital patients:

·         All keyboards tested positive for a staph bacterium called coagulase-negative staphylococci. This is one of the most common causes of bloodstream infections among those hospitalized.

·         80 percent of keyboards contained diphtheroids. This bacteria represents a significant infection risk for those whose immune systems are weak, such as cancer and AIDS patients.

Phones, desks and your computer’s mouse may also be potential sources of bacteria.

Growing research reveals that electromagnetic emissions from cell phones, computers and other modern-day gadgets can hinder the body’s weight-regulating mechanisms…..” Researchers worldwide are discovering an unwanted side effect of modern-day conveniences like cell phones, computers, microwaves, TVs, power lines and wireless network: The electromagnetic fields (EMFs) they emit are creating an “electromagnetic smog” called electropollution that’s making women sick—and fat!

“Despite the fact that electropollution has been largely ignored in the United States, research indicates that roughly 35 percent of people in developed countries suffer from a chronic sensitivity to electromagnetic waves, which causes unwanted health effects like fat retention, extreme fatigue, insomnia and depression.”

“The concern is so strong that laws are being put into place in several European countries to limit or ban the use of cell phones among children under age 16 and pregnant women. “For years we’ve heard the ongoing debate about whether or not EMFs raise cancer risk,” … “Though the jury is still out on that, experts worldwide agree that EMFs can damage health in other ways.”

How electropollution hurts

Each of our body’s cells contain special structures called microtubules that are able to sense invisible frequencies like EMFs. “These receptors interpret EMFs from sources like cell phones, wireless towers and even hair dryers as something foreign and dangerous, triggering cell membranes to instantly go into a protective ‘lockdown mode’,” …”What’s more, the constant bombardment from EMFs that most women in this country experience means that the cells stay blocked off indefinitely. “This extended lockdown hinders the vital cell-to-cell communication that underlies all of the body’s functions, including maintaining energy and natural slimming mechanisms like detoxing, balancing blood sugar and regulating appetite,” …”The result: chronic tiredness and stubborn extra weight.”

THE LITTLE CHIP THAT KEEPS YOU SAFE FROM CELL-PHONE AND COMPUTER EMFS

“International research has established that cell phones emit radiation that directly impacts the brain and triggers headaches, tiredness, swelling and more. And even a short call can lead to ill effects: Scientists have found that it takes the body approximately 30 minutes to recover from the harmful effects of being exposed to cell-phone EMFs for just 5 minutes….scientists have developed special chips that reduce the effects of EMF emissions by creating positive frequencies that counteract, or harmonize with, the negative frequencies.

THREE MORE EASY EMP-PROTECTIVE STATEGIES

“1. Step away from the microwave—Microwave ovens are a major source of electropollution, but simply leaving the kitchen when nuking greatly cuts exposure.

2. Keep your phone at least 5 feet from the bed—Cordless phones are a source of EMFs as well, and nighttime exposure can really add up. Also key: Be sure the computer in your bedroom is turned off before you go to be and that any bedroom TV is at least 10 feet away from your bed.

3. Trade in that electric blanket for a comforter—Electric blankets are a well-documented EMF source—one that most experts recommend avoiding altogether.”

(1) Shocking News (dba) is a registered publisher of science-based information dedicated to public awareness of electric and magnetic  fields (EMF) in the living environment and their effects on the health and welfare of humans and animals. Editor is Don Hillman Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Department of Animal Science, with help from his wife Mary, MS, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI.  Member of The American Society of Agricultural Engineers, and The American Dairy Science Association. Telephone (517) 351-9561.“Credible scientific journals have reported that excessive exposure of humans and animals to electric and magnetic fields (EMF) can affect mental and physical health of people and animals.”

“Concern of health officials about increasing diabetes, obesity, and deaths from childhood leukemia of the U.S. population are reported daily in local news. This review relates mainly to recent discoveries showing relationships of EMF to diabetes and leukemia, although evidence for brain tumors and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is equally apparent.”

“EMF in some homes, schools, and workplaces may be excessive where utility primary neutrals are grounded to earth and bonded to secondary (user) neutral conductors and to water pipes which permeate the walls and living environment of premises. Exposure to electronic equipment emitting excessive EMF contributes further to radio frequency radiation (RFR) sensitivity and illness”……”Electricity and EMF permeate the premises of every citizen, yet no monitoring nor protection from dirty electricity is enforced by law while utilities are increasingly deregulated and contributing to pollution.”

“Diabetes claimed 69,301 lives in 2000. Today in the United States there are 18.2 million diabetics; a third of whom aren’t aware they have the disease. Every year 1.3 million more new cases are diagnosed in people 20 years and older, according to the Joslin-Diabetes Center in Boston, the American Diabetes Association, and the Associated Press. Diabetics are more prone to heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, nervous system disease, and amputations [Lansing State Journal, 9/28/04]…..”

“Teachers have warned that not enough is known about the effects of wi-fi.”

“Alan Johnson is said to believe that no investigation is required into the effects of wi-fi.”

“The use of wireless computer networks in classrooms should be immediately suspended until an inquiry has fully investigated the health threat to millions of pupils, a teachers’ chief urged yesterday”….” children were effectively acting as guinea pigs because the risk posed by ‘wi-fi’ networks had not yet been thoroughly considered.”….Wireless technology has been linked with loss of concentration, fatigue, reduced memory and headaches. There are also claims that it could increase the long-term risk of cancer.:

“My real concern is that until there is a full inquiry based on both existing evidence and on newly commissioned research work, the nation’s children are being treated as guinea pigs in a large-scale experiment.”…demand…an inquiry follows a similar call…a review of the health effects of wi-fi networks was ‘timely’ amid fears they could pose greater dangers than previously thought.”

“Wi-fi systems use high frequency radio waves to transmit and receive data over distances of several hundred feet….They allow users to surf the internet within range of a wireless transmitter and remove the need to connect via a cable….Some 70 per cent of primary schools and 81 per cent of secondaries have already introduced wi-fi, according to official figures, and it is being fitted as standard in all new state schools, including academies.”

“A typical comprehensive has ten wi-fi transmitters spread around the premises. If a school has thick walls, there may be many more. Children are thought to be more vulnerable to electro-magnetic radiation due to their thinner skulls and still-developing nervous systems”….”a wi-fi network… comprehensive gave off three times as much radiation as a typical phone mast, though some scientists have queried the programme’s claims.”

‘Guidance circulated …on schools to dismantle wi-fi networks immediately and replace them with cables. If this is impossible, they should measure radiation levels around the school and put warning signs at hotspots.’…a classics teacher, became too ill to teach after suffering headaches, pains, flushes, pressure behind the eyes and nausea. He has since conducted a study of research into electro-magnetic radiation and believes official advice on wi-fi is “inaccurate”…..dangers of children using wi-fi-enabled laptops on their knees, when the wi-fi transmitter would be only 2cm from the child’s body”…”It is widely used in homes, offices and in public areas.”
