Cell and cordless phone radiation and cell towers have been implicated as a factor in the demise of the bee and some bird populations now Lennart Hardell, Michael Carlson and Kjell Hansson Mild latest research has found another link between use of mobile and cordless phones and malignant brain tumours.
This new study has been published in the International Journal of Oncology. They concluded that there was a significantly increased risk for glioma from the long-term use of a mobile or cordless phone.
The risk worst for early mega users
The 3 potentially deadly sins for excessive cell users:
- began using a cell/ cordless phone before you were 20 years old
- using it constantly – too many hours,
- carrying it on your body
- listening with the phone directly on your ear
With first use before the age of 20 – in this group there was almost 5 times the risk after 10 years cordless/cell phone use.
Pooled analysis was performed of two case-control studies on patients with malignant brain tumours diagnosed during 1997-2003 and matched controls alive at the time of study and one case-control study on deceased patients and controls diagnosed during the same time period. Cases and controls or relatives to deceased subjects were interviewed using a structured questionnaire. Replies were obtained for 1,251 (85%) cases and 2,438 (84%) controls.
Highest overall risk was found for the most common type of glioma, astrocytoma. People who had used a wireless phone for more than ten years and begun its use before the age of 20 had increased risks of 95%.
Began your excessive use of the cordless/ cell phone after age 20?
If you began an excessive unprotected use of the mobile phone and your older the increased risk was between 1.3-fold and 1.5-fold if they had used any type of wireless phone for more than ten years.
Please teach our children that mobile/cell phone use holds a danger to their long-term health and well-being and to use their mobile phones for essential calls only.
Text or use air-tube hands free headsets with a devise attached to protect them from some of the radiation from the phone. Remember even in off mode the Electromagnetic Radiation (EMFs.) is reduced, but not eliminated. All devises with wiring have energy fields that give off EMFs.
Encourage the telecom industry to find ways to protect our health not bury us early from the radiation from mobile devises and cell phone towers.
