Are You Willing to Risk Cancer from Mast Radiation on an 8% Unlikelihood?

If this harmful thing was carrying a mobile phone around with you and having a mast erected to keep the signal on your handset high, then would you still put yourself at risk? The addiction to phones is causing harm to human health.

Recent reports from RF Safe scientists indicate that cell phone radiation, like the kind that comes from using a mobile device, or from long term exposure to the radiation emitted by mobile masts, is capable of causing cancer, or at least making the body more vulnerable to developing cancerous cells. A report related in late April 2014 from RF Safe indicates that scientists working for the group believe that ionising UV radiation along with non-ionising cell phone radiation are capable of producing what is known as a bio effect in the body. This bio effect happens at the cellular level and causes the body to overproduce molecules that are known as Reactive Oxygen Species molecules. These molecules are unstable and have also been reported in the past by scientists to be chemically reactive, as well as to be able to damage DNA. Damaged DNA is almost always found to be a precursor to cancer, no matter what type of cancer is developed. Other adverse health effects are also possible when the DNA is damaged by chemical reactions inside the body.

The reports from RF Safe were recently published in a scientific journal. This journal is known as the Oxidants and Antioxidants in Medical Science, and is a peer-reviewed journal. The study by RF Safe looked at 80 studies which had previously been conducted to look at the possible correlation between cell phone radiation and cancer. Of the studies that were assessed for the purposes of the RF Safe research project, more than 92.5%, or 76 studies, confirmed the same theory and hypothesis: that cellular damage, like that required for generating pre-cancerous cells and health problems, happen at or below the typical thermal level produced by cell phone radiation, both in direct contact with a mobile device, and in long term exposure to mast radiation.

Cancer is not the only problem associated with mast radiation and cell phone radiation exposure. The significant overproduction levels for ROS that results from exposure to low-intensity radio-frequency radiation (RFR) that comes from mobile telephones and their supporting masts is capable of mutating genes and DNA, as well as inducing a large number of serious health side effects.

Some of the most common health side effects of being exposed to mast radiation and cell phone radiation come from what is known as oxidative stress. This is likely to cause headaches, inflammatory diseases like Lupus and other auto immune conditions, exhaustion, and even heart attacks. However, these are not the only conditions that can be linked to exposure to radiation.

With the explosion of smart phones on the market for personal and business use, it’s nearly impossible to keep these devices out of your life and away from your person. So it’s important to always remember to be safe when you are able, and to ensure that you know how to keep yourself in the 8% of individuals who needn’t worry as opposed to the nearly 93% who do.

The decision lies in your hands. Is a mobile phone really necessary? And what did we do when phones were not around!

What You Consider “Just a Few Hours” Could Cause Brain Cancer

Talking on your phone and catching up on the latest gossip, could cause you to have cancer in the future.

In April 2014, a researcher, scientist, and oncologist by the name of Siddhartha Mukherjee, received a Pulitzer Prize for a text he published regarding the claims surrounding the link between electromagnetic radiation and cancer. Mukherjee used his book to debunk these claims and to make assertions that this is not possible. Perhaps the most compelling claim made the author and scientist was that brain cancer should already be more prevalent throughout the world based on the expansive and explosive growth of smart phones as an industry and of the use of cell phones and mobile towers for communications needs throughout the world. However, a new study in France indicates that Mukherjee may have misunderstood how the growth rate of cell phone usage works in harmony and out of harmony with the growth rate of cancer, especially when it comes to brain cancer and tumours.

On May 9th, 2014, The British Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine published a study which indicates that cell phone usage in excess of 15 hours per month can increase the risk of developing a brain tumour by more than three times that of a person who rarely or only seldom utilizes their mobile telephone.

The correlation study at the University of Bordeaux, in France, looked at the histories and activities of individuals who had contracted meningioma and glioma, and a large group of healthy individuals. The study looked at their habits for cell phone usage to determine whether cell phone usage could be linked to brain cancer as a direct or indirect cause. The majority of the individuals involved in the studies had owned and used a cell phone for the past five years.

Individuals who work in the sales industry were of particular interest to the researchers, and appeared to have a significant risk of increased rate of glioma or meningioma development. The data gathered during the study helps to support previous findings and prove that cell phone radiation, whether it comes from a mobile device or a mobile mast, is dangerous and can cause harm after increased exposure. However, this particular study did have one anomaly that does not match up with previous studies. Previous studies indicated that the brain tumour often developed on the same side of the head where the cell phone was used. But in the May 9th released study, the tumours were more often appearing on the side of the head opposite that where the cell phone is most often used.

This study, though it helps to provide additional credence to previous studies, is not guaranteed to prove that cell phone radiation from mobile devices and masts can be harmful. This is due to the fact that filtering is difficult for these types of studies. Many other factors can cause or contribute to the development of cancer, such as alcohol intake, smoking, genetic predisposition, and other types of lifestyle choices that cannot always be accounted for in a small, focused study.
Also, another thing to be noted is that the amount of cancer patients with brain tumours is in the rise, some patients admitted in NHS wards around the country are as young as 20. It is a statistic in itself that needs to be looked at and addressed. If you knew that the mast that was supposed to keep you in touch and ensure you have a signal, would indeed cause your death, would you want to carry a phone with you still?

Can Radiation From Mobile Devices and Mobile Masts Cause Brain Cancer?

The title itself is worrying, but the evidence and tests that have been performed to prove that this could be the case are perhaps more alarming. More so, when local councils seem to allow planning permission for new mobile phone masts to be erected each and every day.

New studies out in February 2014, that have begun to be further developed, have indicated that the radiation that comes from cell phones and mobile mast towers may be responsible for the increase in the number of child deaths from brain cancer and for the increase in the rate of brain tumours experienced by adults in relation to where they typically hold their mobile devices while talking on the phone. The safety of mobile devices is becoming more questionable by the day, and along with those questions are more about the safety of mobile masts, which also emit electromagnetic radiation and radio waves that can cause cancer.

The most recent study, released by the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, brain cancer recently surpassed leukaemia as the leading cause of death in children who are under age 20, not only in Canada, but throughout the world as well. Over the past ten years, the numbers of those children who died from leukaemia were substantially higher than those who died from brain tumours, and the rate of adults who experienced brain tumours were also lower than they are today. The numbers have continued to increase and have now reached alarming heights, according to recent data reports. Studies indicate that the cell phone radiation that comes from mobile masts, mobile telephones and other devices, and wifi may all be contributing in significant ways to these sharp increases and the tragedies that follow.

Research reports recently released show that the risk of developing a brain tumour related to cell phone radiation increases with increased usage of mobile devices, and that there are also higher incidence rates in places where mobile masts are closer together and are found in greater numbers. Reports have shown that those individuals with increased exposure to cell phone radiation can in many cases have a 300% greater risk of developing cancer as a result of their exposure.

As recently as January 2014, government leaders and spokepersons around the world were being confronted by individuals who claim that their loved ones died due to excessive exposure to cell phone radiation. The FCC Chairman in the United States has been called a wolf in sheep’s clothing and has been accused of being “on the take” from the wireless industry due to his failure to do anything about the problem.

Radio Frequency Safe (RF Safe) has warned that these types of numbers coming from all types of mobile radiation could come along with a stiff price: a sharp increase in the number of individuals between the ages of 30 and 40 years who develop and possibly die from tumours caused by cell phone radiation. These individuals impacted will likely be the teens of today who has begun relying on cell phones as their primary means of communicating with the rest of the world. As the demand increases, so too does the number of mobile phones and masts out in the world, which in turn continues to increase the risk.

Could we soon be looking at a ban altogether on mobile phone masts, and phones? This is something that may seem crazy right now, but if clear evidence is out, then governments may have to act on the findings soon in order to stop a health epidemic in the future.

Studies Indicate That Mobile Radiation May Be Linked to Impotence in Men

If you knew that your love of mobile phones, and the need to have a signal on your device when out and about would cause havoc to your sex life, would you still want to carry one around with you?

Recent reports coming from researchers in both Austria and Egypt have indicated that men who use their cell phones for more than four hours per day have a greater risk of becoming impotent than those men who limit the use of their mobile devices to less than two hours per day. These studies were conducted independently at separate labs but came to the same conclusion, leading researchers the world over to reconsider the whether mobile devices and the masts that support them truly pose a danger. Reports early in 2014 indicated that the mobile radiation danger concerns consumers had been facing were nothing more than myths debunked, but these studies out in April 2014 have shown that the earlier reports may need a second look.

Reports out from the researchers indicate that they believe that there may be a direct link between daily use a mobile phone and erectile dysfunction, also known as ED. While the research does to point to cell phone radiation as a possible cause of erectile dysfunction, there is one caveat: the research also indicates that the heat emitted by the devices when the batteries become hot may also be another cause of the damage that leads to impotence, especially for men who leave their cell phones in their pockets, or on their laps, if they are using a hands free kit. However, if the electromagnetic radiation emissions are responsible for the increase in incidences of impotence, men should also be concerned about other types of devices and structures, like masts, that emit radiation.

The studies focused on comparing men with similar heights, weights, ages, and smoking habits, as well as similar levels of testosterone and other exposures to radiation. The only difference between the men studied was the amount of time they spent on their cell phones each day and whether or not they complained of impotence. The correlation study found that the men who complained of erectile dysfunction and other sexual dysfunction used their mobile phones for 4.4 hours each day on average. The men who were healthier and did not have complaints of erectile dysfunction or other sexual dysfunction used their cell phones each day for only 1.8 hours per day on average.

News reports from the latest edition of the Environmental Health Trust (EHT) newsletter indicated that men should be concerned about this study and its implications for their health and future ability to have children. EHT is an organisation that focuses on helping consumers become more educated about the dangers of cell phone radiation and the other types of radiation that come from mobile masts and other types of mobile devices.

The one positive from the study was that none of the participants showed a negative impact on sperm count. This indicates that while radiation from mobile devices and their support systems may cause impotence by erectile dysfunction it does not cause full infertility, at least in this limited case study. But, that is something that begs to differ, because of course erectile dysfunction is of course going to lead to less kids, as men will become more embarrassed and subdued in the bedroom. No one wants to be reliant on pills to get the deed done, and many men suffer severe depression because of this, resulting in no sex at all.

Radiation Shields and Mobile Radiation: Does it Really Work?

Ten years ago, hardly anyone had a mobile phone to carry around with them, but today, phones have become more than just commonplace. Nearly everyone has a mobile phone, from adults to seniors to teenagers, and even young children. This means that there is greater demand for mobile support, which in turn creates greater demand for mobile masts, and recent reports have indicated that the market for those trying to take advantage of the fear of mobile radiation is growing at exponential rates. These same reports indicate that the fear of mobile radiation from electromagnetic fields has been a growing concern for years for people the world over and companies are beginning to take advantage of this fear as some scientific data indicates that the fears of developing cancer and other problems from exposure to mobile radiation is a legitimate one.

Some consumers have taken measures over the past several years to protect themselves, and in larger numbers recently, by using a hands free kit for their cell phone or by using a radiation shield with their mobile device. However, reports indicate that these shields may only help to reduce the exposure to radiation in limited amounts and that additional radiation from radio waves and mobile masts still pose a threat to the safety of those who are attempting to be safer when using a mobile device. The higher the demand, reports indicate, the more mobile radiation there will be around consumers are there will be more mobile phones around as well as more mobile masts to support them.

This does not, however, stop companies from trying to capitalise on the fears of the public by selling products that they claim will help protect consumers in significant ways. Promotional materials from these companies, which have been reported to appear in The New York Times, and other major publications, promise to neutralize harmful radiation and protect mobile phone users from damages that are caused by use of mobile phones. These promises, however, cannot be kept in most cases as mobile radiation shields cannot protect users against all radiation or against all types of radiation.

Medical reports indicate that some of the side effects that victims of exposure to excessive radiation experience include headaches, stress, depression, insomnia, brain cancer, tumours, and other serious issues.

Unfortunately many individuals are purchasing shields to protect them against radiation although the claims of these products cannot be proven, while there are many studies to indicate that harm can come from radiation exposure. Many of these products indicate that they have been tested and are proven to work. Many products and companies that feed on the fears of those who have read reports about the harms of exposure to radiation claim that they have been tested by academic and research institutions that are well-respected. Recent reports indicate that there are few reports out from the scientific and academic communities that even mention these types of shields, let alone their applicability to protecting users from mobile and mast radiation exposure.

It is a very scary thought that the very gadget that we purchase to keep safe and in touch in case of emergencies, is in fact harming our health and creating us to be at risk of deadly diseases. Another thing that really needs to be looked into, is just who gives the permission to allow the masts to be constructed in public areas? Some are even built on top of schools and places of higher education! The mobile phone mast and signal needs of today, could easily become the NHS nightmare of tomorrow.

Mobile Radiation and Your Brain: Harmful or Safe?

Conflicting studies have arisen in the past two months, indicating that there is much to be concerned about for citizens who are exposed to mobile mast radiation, mobile radiation, and those types of radiation coming from other mobile devices and other types of radiation. A study out from researchers in Finland has indicated that microwaves emitted from mobile phone handsets may put the brain at risk. The new study focuses on mobile phone radiation and how the type of radiation that comes from these devices, also known as radio frequency (which is required for both cell phone handsets and for mobile masts), is capable of breaking down the brain’s natural protective barrier, thus allowing toxic substances to enter into the brain, which can then in return, cause serious damage to the brain, eventually breaking down its structure.

The study is currently seeking human volunteers in order to test the theory in greater detail as to how mobile phones can negatively impact the human brain. If these trials provide evidence for the theory that has been presented, the fate of the mobile phone industry could be forever changed.

Researchers in France have already begun to test a similar theory on animals, and their results thus far has provided credence to the Finlandian theory, as they have already shown that mobile radiation can produce leakages in the blood barrier layer of the brain in rats. Rats are often used for scientific theories in an effort to show that the effect can be produced without actually harming a human being.

A conference for radiation studies is scheduled in Canada in the coming weeks and the study from Finland, as well as the study from France, will both be presented at the conference.

The Finlandian study, while it has not been performed on living beings, has shown in laboratory tests that the damage to the blood barrier in the brain is possible with extensive exposure to mobile radiation. The study collected cells from the blood vessel walls of the brain, and these cells were placed in culture dishes in the lab, where they were subsequently exposed to the maximum radiation intensity for mobile telephones, or two watts per kilogram. This, however, is the maximum allowance only for handsets and does not include the maximum amount of radiation that is allowed to be emitted from mobile masts, although mobile masts may be considered less of a danger as they are not placed up against the head or other body parts.

The study, however, does give pause for concern for those who are exposed to cell phone use every day, and especially those who work in areas that are heavily populated by mobile phone masts and mobile device users, such as London, and other major metropolitan areas.

For those who are concerned about the safety risks associated with mobile phone use and mobile masts, it is critical to be aware that not all studies are created equal and the information is inconclusive either way.

At the end of the day, communication is important in today’s world, but would you want to risk your brain function just for the sake of being able to have a mobile phone signal? It is time the UK government address this issue and conduct some conclusive research, and if we are not indeed safe from radiation that the mobile phone masts let off, then they need to address this and start taking the masts down, and constructing them in areas where people are not at a risk of radiation poisoning.

World Governments in Denial Over Radiation Risks Associated With Mobile Masts

A recent report out from scientists has governments claiming that mobile masts, mobile phone towers, and other electronic devices do not emit enough radiation, or any type of harmful radiation, that can cause cancer for the people who rely on these devices every day. But the trade-off is clear. While any one single mobile mast may not emit enough radiation for individuals to be concerned, when there are multiple masts and devices around, the risk becomes greater. And there are multiple towers. The increased dependency on wireless networks, satellite networks, hot spots, cell phones, smart phones, and other electronic devices that are reliant on mobile networks has led to an increased demand for more towers.

The trade-off is that mobile masts and other similar towers give off multiple types of radiation, including extremely low-frequency radiation, also known as ELF, along with radio frequency, or RF, which is necessary for the operation of televisions, radio, and cell phones, and also ultraviolet rays, gamma rays, x-rays, and infrared radiation. All of these types of radiation exist in the environment around us and due to the high demand for the technology that we have become so reliant upon, there is no escaping exposure to these types of radiation, according to recent reports.

Government throughout the world are relying on scientific reports that have recently come out in order to make their case for using mobile masts and other types of radiation-emitting masts and devices without concern. Health Canada released a report in April 2014 indicating that there is need for further study to determine whether or not mobile masts and other technology, and the radiation that they emit, could be harmful to individuals; multiple reports have been conducted by experts on the Health Canada panel that have indicated men can experience adverse effects and the newest reports indicated that further study is required to determine if the same risks apply to women. However, the report did not indicate conclusively that anyone exposed over long periods of time to radiation could experience adverse side effects, and the lack of confirmation or conclusion in the report has allowed this government, and others using Canada as a benchmark, to dismiss any concerns that might be brought to the table.

Multiple other reports from previous years have been cited in recent months in an attempt to debunk the more recent debunking of the mobile mast radiation concern. A 1998 study concluded that children living near power lines had a slightly increased risk for developing Leukaemia, and a 2000 study confirmed this notion, but reported that these children had a risk more than double those who did not live near to power lines. At this time, mobile masts were less of a concern as mobile telephones were not in as great of use and demand as they are today.

Despite recent reports from scientists and governments, many people are still voicing their concerns and providing means and advice for citizens to protect themselves when the government will not. It is something that is very worrying considering that mobile phone masts appear around the UK just about everywhere! There is probably one in a town, street near you just waiting to transmit signals. The question is though, are these signals damaging yours, your kids, and the health of future generations? This is a question that really needs to be addressed clearly, along with evidence of course when the companies that openly construct the masts are present. After all, they have to be responsible for their actions.
