cell phone teenagerAlarming new research indicates that children and teenagers are five times more likely to get brain cancer if they use cell phones. The study is raising fears that today’s young people may suffer an epidemic of the disease in later life.”
“The Swedish research was reported this month at the first international conference on cell phones and health. It came from a further analysis of data from one of the biggest studies carried out on the cell phone/cancer link… “people who started mobile phone use before the age of 20″ had more than five-fold increase in glioma, a cancer of the glial cells that support the central nervous system.”

“The risk to young people from household cordless phones was almost as great. Cordless phones caused a fourfold increase in risk.”

“Young cell phone users were also five times more likely to get acoustic neuromas, disabling tumors of the auditory nerve that often cause deafness.”

A study by an award-winning cancer expert shows that cell phone use could kill more people than smoking, it is reported.“According to the U.K.’s Independent newspaper, the study”….”shows that there is a growing body of evidence that using handsets for 10 years or more can double the risk of brain cancer.”

“…one of the world’s top neurosurgeons — based his assessment on the fact that three billion people now use the phones worldwide. That is three times higher than people who smoke. Smoking kills some five million globally each year.”

“He warned that people should avoid using handsets whenever possible and called on the phone industry to make them safer. France and Germany have already warned against the use of mobile phones, especially by children, it is reported.”

“The study is said to be the most damning indictment of cell phone use. According to the Independent, cancers take at least 10 years to develop, which has influenced earlier cancer studies showing relative safety when using cell phones.”

Health officials ponder farm’s dead animal toll. “Rabbits, goats – even a horse – are among the roughly 100 animals to mysteriously die at a Nova Scotia farm in the past five years. And with the recent deaths of a number of wild birds at the farm, the Natural Resources Department has stepped in and sent one of the animal carcasses to the Atlantic Veterinary College for testing.”….”after years of questions”….”the cause: a cellphone relay tower erected beside the farm. A tenant on the farm for the last two years,”… “the farm’s owner purchased the property about a year before the cell tower went up. Before the tower, the farm’s owner”….”never experienced problems. “

“When that tower went up, he ended up losing his animals little by little,” … “While domestic birds sang and a rooster crowed in the background”….a litany of deaths on the farm…”a dog staggering around and then keeling over, and ….a goat suddenly dying from a seizure. Four years ago, a horse fell over on its side, never to recover.”

“How many animals have died?”

“You couldn’t count them,”….”Over the winter, …a large truck box with the bodies of rabbits and birds.”

“It’s the latter that’s attracted the attention of the province’s Natural Resources Department. Upon hearing of robins, finches and other song birds dying at the property, department officials requested that the farm owner send an animal for testing to the Atlantic Veterinary College in Charlottetown.”

“College vets will conduct tests on a guinea pig that died at the farm, but it could be weeks before they have answers.”

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.”

“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.”

This is a little bit off topic, but so many people use these therapies to counteract EMF’s, it seemed important to share what was sent….there are three days left to write to Congress.

“… just spent three days reading, re-reading, researching and discussing the proposed FDA guidelines for “Complementary and Alternative Medicine” with two FDA attorneys. You can download a copy of this proposal for yourself at: http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/dockets/06d0480/06d0480.htm.

” this FDA attack on complementary and alternative health care, …considered it another “Chicken Little” rumor. On further study, I’m appalled at the speed with which the pharmaceutical companies are implementing Codex Alimentarius in the USA. If you don’t suspect the pharmaceutical companies control the FDA, you may want to research that further by visiting http://www.HealthFreedomUSA.org.

”This insidious proposal is designed to redefine every complementary and alternative health care modality and product as “medicine.” This has direct implications on the services and products provided by every alternative health care professional. There is no facet of complementary and alternative health care that is not affected. If the FDA adopts this proposal, all natural health care would be illegal even for medical doctors.”

”Essential oils, herbs, herbal remedies, homeopathic remedies, minerals, nutritional supplements, plant enzymes and vitamins are redefined in this proposal as “medicine.” Very simply, medicine is under the jurisdiction of the FDA and, by law, only licensed medical doctors may prescribe “medicines.” Anybody else who advises, advocates, counsels, distributes, markets, recommends or suggests anybody use “medicine” is practicing medicine without a license. This is a felony in the USA punishable by fines and incarceration.”

”Aromatherapy, auricular therapy, biofeedback, color therapy, homeopathy, hypnotism, naturopathy, neurotherapy, nutritional consulting, reflexology, sound therapy and wellness consulting are among the alternative health modalities being redefined as “Alternative Medicine.” This subtle change of vocabulary from “alternative health care” to “alternative medicine” makes all of these industries subject to control by the FDA as medicine. Only medical doctors would be allowed to provide, prescribe and supervise the delivery of these services. Anybody else who provided any of these services would be practicing medicine without a license and subject to incarceration and fines.”

”That’s the bad news. The good news is we have until April 30, 2007 to voice our opinion against this proposal to eliminate complementary and alternative health care in America. Almost 100,000 people have already filed their objection….”

”Please stand up and be counted. Go to http://tinyurl.com/2u7ghc and file your petition in support of natural health care, in support of complementary and alternative health care as we know it today. If you require more information, please visit http://www.HealthFreedomUSA.org or read the FDA proposed policy.”

Do EMF’s Affect Cellular Signal Transduction Pathways? April 26, 2007

“There have been many studies in the literature reported by a variety of investigators using a large number of different in vitro systems which have suggested that cellular signal transduction pathways are affected by EMF. This finding is quite expected since the signal transduction pathways receive both physical and biological information from other cells, as well as the environment, and transmit them in a cellularly appropriate fashion to produce the biochemical signals that regulate cellular functions. The electric field is attenuated within the cell but is amplified across the plasma membrane; therefore, in the absence of a clear indication that the magnetic field alone is responsible for all observed EMF effects, we must hypothesize that recognition and amplification of the information carried in the EMF signal is the domain of the plasma membrane and its signaling systems.”

“There is reasonable agreement as well on which early signaling pathways may be affected. The agreement, however, does not extend to a consensus regarding whether or not EMF effects at the in vivo level can be directly ascribed to any one pathway.”
