Fresh fears over mobile phone risk to kids health

May 2 2008 by Gregory Tindle, Western Mail


NEW research has triggered fresh fears for the long-term health of children and teenagers who use mobile phones today.


The study warns that the risks are little lower than those alcohol and tobacco pose to youngsters health and could also last a lifetime.


It suggests mobile phone use exposes youngsters to the risk of early memory loss and sleep problems, then brain tumours in their 20s followed by the early onset of dementia in their 50s.


Welsh experts claim this latest evidence should force the Government to update and strengthen its warnings on phone use.

Fight against mast

By Alli Pyrah

CONCERNED campaigners are fighting plans for a second T-mobile phone mast in the middle of a Cashes Green residential area, near a primary school.

Phone company T-mobile has sent leaflets to some residents, saying it will apply for planning permission to build the mast on the corner of Springfield Road and Sunny Hill with the next fortnight.

There is already a Hutchinson 3G mast on the roundabout at the bottom of Springfield Road, just 20 metres away from the proposed site, which was built two years ago despite vigorous opposition from Cashes Green residents.

Residents and safety campaigners say that one mast is enough, and want local politicians to refuse the application.

Concerned resident Caroline Wilmot, of Springfield Road, is worried that many residents were unaware of the plans.

"We already have one mast," said Miss Wilmot, 26.

"People can't believe that we are going to have another one."

And Lynne Edmunds, the Gloucestershire representative of safety campaign group Mast Sanity, urged residents to write to T-mobile and the council.

"After the strong fight to stop the existing mast going up in the middle of a densely populated part of Cashes Green, extremely close to a primary school, these operators must make themselves aware of how much community opposition there is to any possible health risks," she said.

"As did the operators pushing for a mobile phone mast in Stonehouse recently, they should look for a site further flung away from homes and schools.

"The amount of scientific evidence pointing to health dangers, particularly to children, is growing very rapidly."

A spokesman for T-Mobile said: "There are 60 million mobile phones in the country and T-Mobile is seeking to install this mast in order to enhance and improve service to customers.

"Without a mobile base station, mobile phones simply do not work.

"All our installations conform to rigorous national and international health and safety guidelines."

I am appalled that the mobile operators are still siting their harmful, electro magnetic radiation emitting phone masts near schools and housing. There are over one thousand independent research studies proving that mast radiation caused ill health and cancers. This week the national papers reported that T-MOBILE has been accused of “burying” a scientific report it commissioned that concluded handsets and masts contribute to cancer and genetic damage. The report argued that officially recommended limits on radiation exposure should be cut to 1/1000th of those in force. The suggestion has not been taken up by the company or by regulators. Campaigners claimed T-Mobile’s handling of the report was part of a wider pattern of behaviour by the industry in its efforts to keep discussion of the health risks off the agenda. The idea that unelected bodies (the mobile phone companies) have a right to expose people to this proven risk, amounts to enrolling the population in a giant biological experiment without their consent. Considering that children, the most vulnerable of all, are included in this experiment is a national disgrace. It is shameful that their interests are disregarded so cynically in the pursuit of profit.

If there was a scientific risk I'm sure the government will not allow the population to be exposed to any harmful elements. It leads me to think that the attention seeking mast focus groups are ironically the only part of the mast debate that actually causes health issues by stressing out communities into thinking there is cause for alarm by their constant potentially-libelous claims. Mr Elliott claims there are a 1,000 research papers, I am sure the Government has 10,000 papers stating the opposite? We must learn to evolve as communities and accept that infrastructure changes with time. If we put a stop to a mobile phone mast due to potential 'risks' then we must also carry on this trend and put a moratorium on roads, rail, aeroplanes and any other form of infrastructure that has an element of risk. In essence, society should stand still as everything has a risk attached to it - even eating a Mars Bar!

Oh dear James you have a lot to learn about government. The government receive £10 billion per annum in taxes from the phone operators. It has taken our government 50 years to finally take measurers to protect us from smokers. Asbestosis, over head power lines, thalidomide, CJD together with smoking, how long did successive governments hide the truth from the general poulation despite repeated research warning them of the dangers? Money and big business will always preside over people's health. Eight years ago they sold the airwave licences to the phone operators for £23 billion without proof that this technology was safe. Oh and by the way the only research which alleges that this technology is safe is that funded by the phone operators. But as we have seen this week, even their own vested interested research proves that it causes cancer! The risk is not "potential" it is actual! And no, the government has not carried out ANY research at all into the long term safety of this technology. But don't take my word for it, look at the Powerwatch and Mast Sanity websites. The cat is now out of the bag on this. The ill health and cancer clusters in the vicinity of phone masts can no longer be ignored.

The article does say that the campaign is headed by "Lynne Edmunds, the Gloucestershire representative of safety campaign group Mast Sanity" so someone should have her contact details.

A current cancer cluster not on the list is one at Berkeley Flats, Staple Hill, Bristol. I don't have any contact details of the residents but the councillor involved is Shirley Potts, email address: shirley.potts @southglos.gov.uk. 2 masts already sited on top of the flats with about 7 cancer cases appearing after they were sited. They now want to site another mast on top of the flats.

Mobile phones: an inconvenient truth

The excellent Worthing activist newsletter the Portkbolter has just published my letter as below.

Gary


Mobile phones - an inconvenient truth

WE ALL know that 'passive smoking' is bad for you - that's why lighting up is on the no-no list everywhere you go nowadays. But whayt about 'passive' radiation from other people's mobile phones and the masts which are springinmg up all over the porkin' place? Nothing to worry about? A stupid fuss about nothing?

Not according to Robert Kane, PhD, former Motorola Senior Research Scientist, who has gone public with his conscience: He says: "Recent research indicates that even short-term exposure to radiation power densities emanating from a nearby cell phone suffices to modify brainwaves, affect short-term memory, and modify an individual's ability to perform physical tasks such as driving an automobile."

"Every time someone in an automobile next to you activates his cell phone or someone at a table in a restaurant near to you activates her phone, your brain is being irradiated. The cell phone users also include everyone nearby by bringing everyone into the high-risk pool".

"The available research indicates that the operation of a nearby cell phone exposes a non-user to radiation, some of which is deposited into the brain of the non-user, at levels higher than necessary to elicit undesirable biological effects even though the phone may be more than ten feet away from him"

"After that cell phone user departs, he leaves behind, within the brain of every nearby person, the residual effects and damage. These are effects and damage known to the scientific community but not acknowledged by the industry placing their products into the commercial stream"

This ties in with the views of a group of European Doctors who in 2002 launched a global petition entitled "The Freiburger Appeal".

They wrote that they had observed "a dramatic rise in serious and chronic diseases" including extreme fluctuations in blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes among younger people, brain degeneration, leukaemia and brain tumours.

They put this down to "installation of a mobile telephone sending station in the near vicinity, intensive mobile telephone use, and installation of a Digital Cordless (DECT) phone at home or in the neighbourhood"

In other words if we think we can carry on like this, we all need our heads examining - in more ways than one!

The rise of technology addiction

Well would you believe it?

People are not becoming addicted, they already are, and have been for two or three years.

There is a clear case for saying that the addiction is not only psychological, social but physiological; EM fields interfere with dopamine transport via altered nitric oxide release.
