Phone Cancer Link Downplayed

British study finds that cell phone users are not at greater risk of developing brain tumors.

January 20, 2006

Regular cell phone users are not at greater risk of developing the most common type of brain tumor, glioma, according to a study published Friday.

Researchers from the Universities of Leeds, Nottingham, and Manchester, and the Institute of Cancer Research in London, conducted the four-year study between December 1, 2000, and February 29, 2004, on 966 adults diagnosed with glioma. A group of 1,716 healthy volunteers was used as a control group.

They found there was no relationship between the risk of glioma and the time since the adults’ first use of a cell phone, the number of years they had been using a cell phone, the number of calls they made, and the hours of mobile phone usage.

“This large case-control study found no increased risk of developing a glioma associated with mobile phone use either in the short or medium term,” said the study published in the British Medical Journal.

Contrary to an earlier Swedish study that found an increased risk, their data did not indicate a risk associated with cell phone use in rural areas.

However, the researchers did find a significantly increased risk for tumors that developed on the same side of the head as where the adults said they held their cell phones and a decreased risk of tumors on the other side of the head.

The researchers said that people with glioma brain tumors might be over-reporting their use of the phone on the same side as where the tumor developed and under-reporting their usage on the other side of their heads.

The earlier Swedish study also found increased incidence of brain tumors on the side of the head where people reported using their mobile phones. The British researchers pointed out, however, that other researchers had not been able to confirm the results of the Swedish study and had criticized its methods.

The British researchers acknowledged their own study was limited in predicting the long-term effects of cell phone use since mobile phones have only been popular in the United Kingdom since the late 1990s, although they have been available in the U.K. since 1985.

Older cell phones used analog technology, while newer cell phones employ digital technology. While the older varieties emitted higher amounts of power, the study showed no increased risk of glioma brain tumors with analog phones.

A study published last August in the British Journal of Cancer by the Institute of Cancer Research in London also found that cell phones do not increase the risk of cancer to the nerve that links the ear to the brain (see Cell Phones Don’t Cause Cancer).

Questions about Study Funding

Nevertheless, the possible link between cell phones and cancer risk remains a controversial topic. Aside from the Swedish study, other researchers have found links.

Cell phone makers have been making efforts in recent years to reduce the amount of radiation emitted from phones and listing the amount of radiation they can measure in their SAR (specific absorption rate) ratings.

The new BMJ study has already received criticism from advocacy groups such as Powerwatch, a British group that is examining the links between electromagnetic fields and health risks.

Director Alasdair Phillips pointed out to Bloomberg News that 49 percent of the 966 brain tumor patients in the study were not interviewed by the researchers.

In addition, the University of Leeds, which helped carry out the study, also received funding from various British mobile phone carriers, such as O2, Orange, T-Mobile, Vodafone, and 3, to support the research. However, they signed contractual agreements to ensure the independence of the scientific investigators.

Various mobile phone industry groups, such as the GSM Association and the Mobile Manufacturer Forum, also provided funds for the larger 13-country Interphone study, of which the British study is one part.

But polling companies still refuse to do their own polling on this issue. Gallup and the Washington Post have said they won't poll because impeachment is not in Congress or the media. But it is in Congress:

TELL BILL O'REILLY TO DEBATE BOB FERTIK

Bill O'Reilly was forced to talk about impeachment on his radio show this week when a caller mentioned the latest poll we commissioned from Zogby. After O'Reilly denounced it as not really from Zogby, Zogby posted information about it online, which lead to some interest from more respectable media outlets than O'Reilly's.

O'Reilly has advertised that he wants someone to debate him on his show. Of course, he wants someone he can trample, and Bob Fertik, President of Democrats.com has previously trampled on O'Reilly. Nonetheless, Bob has challenged O'Reilly to a debate on impeachment. You can encourage O'Reilly to debate Bob by writing to oreillycontest@foxnews.com

Republican Leaders Say They're Reformers!

Joe Conason writes that Republican leaders are glancing nervously behind them as their old cronies line up in the dock, from Jack Abramoff and Tom DeLay to Duke Cunningham and Bob Ney, and looking nervously ahead to Election Day, the rentable statesmen compete to prove their devotion to the highest ethical standards. Their proclamations of purity display a truly touching faith in the perpetual gullibility of the American voter.

Wahlkampf Baden-Württemberg: Stadt Heidelberg wendet Einbürgerungs-Leitfaden nicht an (20.01.06)

Gegen den Einbürgerungs-Leitfaden in Baden-Württemberg formiert sich jetzt auch Widerstand in den Kommunen. Die Stadtverwaltung Heidelberg teilte am Freitag mit, sie werde den Gesprächsleitfaden nicht in ihren Einbürgerungsbehörden anwenden. Oberbürgermeisterin Beate Weber (SPD) begründete dies mit verfassungsrechtlichen Bedenken. Sie forderte zugleich ein Gespräch zwischen Land und Kommunen über das weitere Vorgehen. In Baden-Württemberg wird demnächst gewählt. Dies begründet möglicherweise die Auseinandersetzung.

"Arrogant, blasiert und weltfremd": Harte Kritik an Parlamentsentscheidung zur EU-Verfassung

20.01.06

Durch die Referenden in Frankreich und in den Niederlanden war die EU-Verfassung förmlich am Mehrheitswillen der Bevölkerung in zwei EU-Mitgliedsstaaten gescheitert. Trotz dieser rechtlich verbindlichen direkt-demokratischen Entscheidungen im so genannten Ratifizierungsverfahren verabschiedete das EU-Parlament am Donnerstag einen Bericht, wonach die EU-Verfassung im Laufe des Jahres 2009 "in Kraft treten soll". "Mit ihr würde die EU ein neues Maß an Offenheit, Pluralismus und demokratischer Legitimität erreichen", meinen die EU-Abgeordneten. Die politischen Probleme und die institutionellen Mängel würden ohne Verfassung weiter bestehen und sogar zunehmen. Auch wäre ohne die Verfassung "das Gelingen dieser und zukünftiger Erweiterungen gefährdet". Die Fraktion der europäischen Liberalen verurteilt das Festhalten des Europäischen Parlaments am umstrittenen EU-Verfassungsentwurf als "Realsatire". Die Mehrheitsentscheidung vom Donnerstag sei "arrogant, blasiert und weltfremd ", sagte die stellvertretende Fraktionschefin der Liberalen, Silvana Koch-Mehrin, der "Neuen Osnabrücker Zeitung". Die Volksvertreter hätten sich sträflich über den Willen der Bürger hinweggesetzt und das Nein bei den Referenden von Franzosen und Niederländern ignoriert.

CALL ALL YOUR SENATORS LOCAL DISTRICT OFFICES NOW TO OPPOSE ALITO

We have gotten many emails from our participants, asking "what more can we do?" Some have reported senators arbitrarily turning off their answering machines at night, or long waits on hold. Are they trying to hide from the thousands and thousands of their constituents who are raising their voices to demand that they filibuster the evasive Alito? Even if you have already sent your personal message by email or made some phone calls, we have added a FABULOUS extra function to the main action page where you can instantly lookup all your senators local district offices phone and fax numbers with just one click.

http://www.nocrony.com

SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT FILIBUSTER FRIDAY

If the other side can have a so-called "Justice Sunday", we can have our own "Filibuster Friday", and that day is tomorrow. In just the last 24 hours we have seen a major shift in momentum. Today, Senator Leahy came out with a very strong statement that he recognizes the immense threat to our freedom and democracy in allowing a dangerous and unpopular president to install a fifth and controlling vote to hold that our Constitution actually intended to create an executive dictatorship. Tomorrow we need to show our support for those senators who are starting to stand up now by hitting every phone they've got right down to the district level with our phone calls and faxes. Get all your numbers with one easy click at

http://www.nocrony.com

Those you who like to call in to progressive radio programs, we have all their call in numbers too at the site above in the right column. Call them and ask them to talk up Filibuster Friday all day and night long! Let's start early and snowball the thing all day long. Ask them to give out the easy to say and remember URL above as much as possible. Senators have said they are "undecided" on a filibuster. But we the American people HAVE decided and all our senators have to do it get it.

Some senators who are too still too cowardly to demand a filibuster are saying they will make Alito an issue in the 2006 election. It'll be an issue alright, in their OWN primaries! Any officeholder who will not stand up for this one must never hold public office in any capacity ever again. And the difference is whether you will stand up YOURSELF right now and make those calls to their local district offices. Make calls to the toll-free numbers 888-355-3588, 888-818-6641 and 800-426-8073 if you can get through there too.

It is not enough to vote "No." They must vote "Hell, NO!" It's called a filibuster. Filibuster Friday.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

MAST PROTEST LANDS MAURICE IN TROUBLE

EASTBOURNE'S longest serving councillor is under investigation for an alleged breach of planning rules following his involvement in a demonstration.

Councillor Maurice Skilton MBE is being investigated over his involvement in a protest about an application to erect a 12-metre high phone mast in his Old Town ward.

A complaint made to the Standards Board for England and Wales has already been dismissed but now officers at Eastbourne Borough Council are interviewing the 85-year-old.

The investigation surrounds the application submitted for the 3G 12-metre mast at the junction of Central Avenue and Victoria Drive 18 months ago.

Cllr Skilton helped organise a meeting which involved members of the public, fellow councillors and the mobile phone network.

A public demo was then organised which the Old Town Lib Dem councillor was pictured attending.

Cllr Skilton is, and was at the time, a member of the planning committee.

Rules state that elected members must make up their minds with all the evidence placed in front of them on the day of the meeting and not in advance.

By attending the protest, Cllr Skilton, who is also a county councillor, could have breached the rules.

He was reported to the borough council's standards committee by planning committee chairman Cllr Patrick Bowker.

This week Cllr Skilton remained defiant over his views against mobile masts.

He said, 'I have and always will be against phone masts on the grounds of the health risk, which in my opinion has not been proved either way.

'As a result of this application being submitted I called a public meeting and then attended a public demonstration against it.

'It is for this reason that I have been reported to the standards boards.

'At the subsequent planning meeting, I moved against it as a member of the committee. I have always said that I would be against it.

'My views and those of the people I represent are more important than the governing rules.'

The application was heard by the planning committee on July 20, 2004.

Fellow ward councillor Ian Lucas also spoke out at the meeting against the mast proposal.

All councillors on the committee voted against it.

But following an appeal in October 2004 the mast was approved in May last year.

The investigation comes just weeks after the announcement that Eastbourne's Mayor Cllr Graham Marsden breached rules while speaking on a planning matter.

Cllr Marsden, a Conservative, has been suspended from the council for the month of January.

Cllr Skilton added, 'I have been elected to represent the people of Old Town and I will continue to do just that.

'For years I have campaigned against mobile phone masts.

'I am deeply hurt and anxious. I have served the council to the best of my ability for 45 years and this is deeply embarrassing for me.

'I do not want to damage the council, but I feel I must stand up for the residents who I serve.

'I will be glad when this is all over.'
