Cancer study ordered into mobile phones: BEWARE THE HEADLINES ONCE AGAIN

There has been an interesting article circulating in the past couple of days
( //www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2-2556768,00.html -- Cancer study ordered into mobile phones //www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2-2556768,00.html ). And once again, what you read on the surface betrays what is below the surface.

When you read the article behind this link, please understand that the mobile phone industry is behind it. In the UK, the mobile phone mast issue is gaining a great deal of momentum. Whenever that happens, the political solution involves putting some money into a study -- a study that will take years to complete -- to assuage the public concern. The tactic is part of the industry's overall strategy to "buy time". With the mobile phone health risk issue, this goes back to the very early days of the WTR when the industry funded our research program, in their mind, "as an insurance policy to buy time". With research going on, the argument can be made in public that the "jury is still out" and from the industry's perspective, "the heat is off". In this case, note specifically that the studies mentioned at the end of the article -- a very selected few from the numerous studies now in the open literature -- are only the studies funded by the industry, with results that mute the present day concern. Don't fall for it.

More research is always a good thing. But, research does not help people who are being exposed to dangerous ICRW (Information-Carrying Radio Waves) today. Research always should be joined with surveillance of high risk groups and the implementation of primary, secondary and tertiary interventions in those high risk groups as appropriate.

Mobile phones and microwave sickness

Sir, As your report suggests, there is indeed a significant health risk posed by devices that emit non-ionising radio-frequency radiation ("Cancer study ordered into mobile phones", report, Jan 20).

The phenomenon was first described in 1945 as "microwave sickness", by Soviet scientists trying to determine why radio and radar operators were developing neurological and cognitive difficulties.

International regulating agencies, as well as the mobile phone and wireless industry, suggest that there is currently "no evidence" to suggest that negative health effects result from such emissions. Digging up the thousands of studies to the contrary is one approach a concerned citizen might take.

Why not just follow the money trail and ask why the insurance industry has refused, since the late 1990s, to insure telephone companies for the potential health effects of their wireless and mobile products?

DR DAVID FANCY
Brock University, St Catharines, Ontario


Sir, Six years ago, after the publication of the Stewart report, the Department of Health issued a leaflet warning against mobile phone use by under-16s. Similarly, the industry made a commitment not to market phones to children.

Successive ministers have failed to take any positive action to promote the advice in schools or inform parents of this precautionary policy.

Consequently, we have a generation of children addicted to their mobiles and at risk. Given the huge amount of publicity about junk food and other issues affecting the young, it is surprising that the Government keeps so quiet about mobile phones.

Maybe it's something to do with the £23 billion it received from the industry in licence fees.

KAREN BARRATT
Winchester, Hants


Sir, My father is an electronic engineer, and he wouldn't have a mobile phone for years; he knew the possible effects of the radiation they send out.

Do people realise that mobiles are pumping out radiation all the time they are switched on? Every second or so, they send out a signal. This would be less than the radiation transmitted when a phone is in use, but if the phone is switched on all day, it could have a similar cumulative effect, increased if in a rural area or a car, where the signal is amplified to reach the transmitter.

How many people keep a phone in their pocket, near a woman's ovaries and a man's prostate, which are particularly susceptible to cancer, and leave it switched on all day?

Adverse health indicators correlating with sparsely populated areas in Sweden

Below is a link to the abstract of a paper recently published in EJCP about adverse health effects in sparsely populated areas in Sweden. I relate this to the increased output power levels from mobile handsets in those areas.

My comments to the Mail online

Perhaps Prof Challis should read Dr George Carlo's book. "Cell phones, invisible hazards in the wireless age" [ //omega.twoday.net/stories/418854/ ]. It details the results of his 5 year investigation heading up the US phone industry research programme between 1993 and 1999. He had 200 scientists working for him and completed 56 studies at a cost of $28 million. His book details the industry's reaction when they found evidence for genetic damage and an increase in risk of brain tumour as a result of mobile phone use. Dr Carlo also advocates that wireless computers whould not be put in schools because of the risk of genetic damage to children from the microwave radiation constantly emitted by the laptops and wireless access points.

Three senior members of the public health community have called for precautionary policies to limit leukemia risks to children

Three senior members of the public health community —each with extensive experience with EMF health research— have called for precautionary policies to limit leukemia risks to children. At a public hearing convened by the Connecticut Siting Council (CSC) on January 9, David Carpenter, Raymond Neutra and Daniel Wartenberg testified in support of prudent avoidance, as advocated by the Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH). Read our special report on the Connecticut hearing //www.microwavenews.com/docs/mwn.1-07.pdf , with extended excerpts from Carpenter, Neutra and Wartenberg's prepared testimony. (See also our previous coverage of Connecticut's efforts to establish a state EMF policy.) //www.microwavenews.com/CT.html
