"Phone killed our daughter" ?

Parents grieve for student who died from a brain tumour.

The grieving parents of a student who died of a brain tumour have blamed her tragic death on radiation from her mobile phone. "The phone had an antenna and where she held it to her head was where the tumour appeared. It is extremely rare for someone as young as Samantha to get a brain tumour. It is most common in men over 65" Said Mrs Miller, 38 of Yeovil.

Samantha Miller, aged 17 has died after a 15 month battle against the cancer. Samantha was diagnosed with the tumour a glioblastoma multiforme-after complaining of severe headaches. In March last year surgeons at FrenchayHospital, Bristol, operated on the tumour. This was followed by a course of radiotherapy but this January it returned. She died at Littlebridge House a children's hospice in Fremington, Devon.

The StrodeCollege (Street, Somerset, UK) student was studying hairdressing and had been an extremely popular member of the course said Barbara Millard, deputy head of the college's hair, beauty and complementary therapy team.

Samantha's parents, Bill and Janet, of Marl Close, Yeovil, said they wanted to publicly thank everyone who had supported their daughter and their family through such a traumatic time.

Mr and Mrs Miller plan to lay Samantha to rest in YeovilCemetery on what would have been her 18th birthday on Wednesday.

Mrs Miller said: Samantha was a very popular and bubbly girl, I could not believe how many friends she had. She was always on the phone to them. We think that is what caused the tumour in the first place. Samantha also thought this."

The sad story printed in the Western Gazette on 13th June (see below) about the teenager who died of a brain tumour, raises questions about the environmentally hazardous world we now live in. Samantha, a hairdressing student, and her parents were convinced that it was her intensive and extensive mobile phone use which was responsible for her brain tumour. The fact that the tumour was in the place where the main emissions from her phone would have radiated her brain, makes the argument a persuasive one. It is likely that the RF exposure she was subject to played an important part in the growth, if not in the initiation of the tumour.

The cause of cancer is rarely simple, one sole cause rarely leads to the outcome. If it were that simple, there would be a large number of teenagers, who use their phones with as much eagerness as did Samantha, who would be suffering from brain tumours, and this isn't so.

Most cancers have a multi-stage process. Each individual carries a different genetic history, and then is exposed to different environmental exposures, and chooses to lead a unique lifestyle. There may be a genetic tendency, there may be exposure to ionising radiation, there may be illnesses, there may be chemical exposures, an inadequate or poor diet, there may be spontaneous DNA mutation, there may be exposure to electromagnetic radiation (from our use of power, or telecommunications).

It seems that some combinations can lead to tragic consequences in one person, and can be shrugged off by immune system repair mechanisms in another. The more our immune systems are compromised by our lifestyle, the more we are likely (though not certain) to reap the consequences in adverse health reactions. Chemicals used in hairdressing have been associated in the past with an increased risk of developing cancers. The chemicals have changed, eliminating the more hazardous ones. However, it is difficult to keep pace with the changing chemical exposures we are subject to. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in America, currently recognises more than four million chemical compounds. More than 60,000 of these are produced commercially, with three new compounds introduced each day - the vast majority were not found in the natural environment of people living on Earth. In 1992, an EPA study revealed that of 7,000 Americans chosen at random, 71 percent had toxic chemical residues in their urine. In the same way as not all heavy mobile phone using teenagers get brain tumours, not all hairdressers get cancer. Life is never that simple, or we would avoid the obvious contaminants - possibly.

However, people still smoke, they still drink-drive, they eat barbecued meat (associated with cancer), they don't consume 5 portions of fruit and / or vegetables a day (associated with a reduction in cancer risk). We have to weigh up the risks we are exposed to and make our choices.

It is a tragedy that Samantha is no longer able to make the risk assessments we have to make daily in the course of living. Our heartfelt sympathies go out to her family.
