Wanna be a lab rat? Guess what? You are.

Did you know that we are now in the largest experiment on Humans every done in the history of the world?

We are being deluged with radiation. In the 2009 documentary "Full Signal", they claim that the biggest killer of children under 20 is brain tumors. I looked it up.

The Jim Doody Foundation was founded in order to promote awareness of the prevalence and nature of brain tumors and the need for brain tumor research funding, raise the much needed funds to do so, and preserve the memory of Jim Doody. According to them, brain tumors are the number two cause of death in men age 45 and younger. Only 31 percent of males and 30 percent of females survive five years following the diagnosis of a primary or malignant brain tumor. Childhood brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer death in people age 20 and younger. Brain tumors are the leading cause of SOLID TUMOR death in children under age 20 now surpassing acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), and are the third-leading cause of cancer death in young adults ages 20-39.

We keep hearing about cell phone radiation not being harmful. But what about the millions of cell phone Towers and Antennae that are everywhere? Do you even realize how many are around? Especially now that they are hiding them. Can some people feel them? Or be affected by them? Or killed? They have done some research and proven that some are elctrohypersensitive to radiation and could 100% of the time correctly deduce if a cell phone were turned on in the room with them.

My son and I both have very good hearing. My hearing is nothing like it once was. When I was in the Air Force, I went for my annual hearing test as I worked on the flight line next to very large jet engines. My hearing was literally off the charts. The technician thought his equipment was faulty, but proved it wasn't. I was just that good at hearing beyond normal Human range. My son has this capability. We can both hear something, a high pitched sound, when we are here at home. But we could never find the source and it never occurred to me until today that it might be the cell tower at the top of the hill above us. And I don't hear this sound all the time.

Cell radiation is bathing us on a consistent and enduring duration. The American Cancer Society says that there has been no evidence in ten years that the cell radiation harms people. However, even tobacco took fifteen to twenty years to show evidence of cancer and tumors. The same is true for asbestos with mesothelioma. Cell phones on a large scale basis like they are now, have not been around that long. So we don't even have the information yet to prove one way or another what the long turn effects are going to be.

A large prospective cohort study of cell phone use and its possible long-term health effects was launched in Europe in March 2010. This study, known as COSMOS, will enroll approximately 250,000 cell phone users ages 18 or older and will follow them for 20 to 30 years.

Another case-control study, called Mobi-Kids, is under way to examine health effects among children.

The FDA and FCC have suggested some steps that concerned cell phone users can take to reduce their exposure to radio frequency energy:
  • Reserve the use of cell phones for shorter conversations or for times when a landline phone is not available.
  • Use a hands-free device, which places more distance between the phone and the head of the user.
I always try to use my much lower powered BlueTooth device rather than ever put my cell phone to my head. If for no other reason than my Droid, gets quite hot on longer conversations.

effective against all high-frequency radiation up to far beyond 10GHz

The National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health says: "Brain cancer incidence and mortality (death) rates have changed little in the past decade. In the United States, 22,340 new diagnoses and 13,110 deaths from brain cancer are estimated for 2011. The 5-year relative survival for brain cancers diagnosed from 2001 through 2007 was 34.8 percent (21). This is the percentage of people diagnosed with brain cancer who will still be alive 5 years after diagnosis compared with the survival of a person of the same age and sex who does not have cancer."

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is part of the World Health Organization (WHO). Its major goal is to identify causes of cancer. The IARC has classified RF fields as "possibly carcinogenic to humans," based on limited evidence of a possible increase in risk for brain tumors among cell phone users, and inadequate evidence for other types of cancer. (For more information on the IARC classification system, see our document, Known and Probable Human Carcinogens.)

Also in 2008, the director of Cancer Research at the University of Pittsburgh bolstered concerns about cell phone dangers when he released a controversial memo to his staff concerning modified cell phone practices to ward off potential harm:

"Although the evidence is still controversial, I am convinced that there are sufficient data to warrant issuing an advisory to share some precautionary advice on cell phone use," Dr. Ronald Herberman wrote in his memo.
He went on to warn that children shouldn't use cell phones except in emergency situations because "the developing organs of a fetus or child are the most likely to be sensitive to any possible effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields."

"Cell phones have become an essential part of our culture both for personal reasons and for work ... they are here to stay, but we need to evaluate whether cell phone design and usage needs to be adjusted to avoid or minimize potential risks," she adds.

"Cell phones have become an essential part of our culture both for personal reasons and for work ... they are here to stay, but we need to evaluate whether cell phone design and usage needs to be adjusted to avoid or minimize potential risks," she adds.

The point is, cell phones are here to stay. But the danger from their radiation doesn't have to. We need to be researching and finding more healthy ways to live with what we are already stuck with. We need to think about this situation, talk about it, bring it out into the open and not allow the cell phone companies to brush yet again another health issue under the rug. Look what we allowed the Tabacco companies to get away with for so many decades and how many died from something the corporations lied repeatedly about being safe.
