The new smog that is jeopardising the health of us all - How safe is our modern communications technology

Are Governments too afraid to act?

Issue 21 May 2007

While vitamin pills and herbal supplements now have to provide reports costing six-figure sums to the European Parliament's regulatory committees before they can even be considered for public use, no such proof of safety is required for WiFi, mobile phone masts nor mobile phones. In fact, far from it. There are, for example, no studies on WiFi despite its rapid expansion. The creation of 'Hotspots' on the underground, in hotels, in modern appartment blocks, in your children's classrooms and even in whole western cities, is often without your knowledge, and certainly without your approval. Has the failure to regulate gone too far - will the Government now merely look stupid if they try to reign it all in, especially when they are happy to take the occasional 26 billion pounds from mobile phone companies?

This e newsletter gives you an easy-to-understand overview. The latest on mobile phones - which, despite Press coverage to the contrary, certainly do not have the 'all clear'. The latest on Masts - where science is actually catching up with common sense. The latest on a new and very secret potential hazard: WiFi. You can choose to use a phone, but you may be living in the main beam of a mast and living and working in a WiFi hotspot without even knowing it!

Mobile Phones and Cancer: it's your call

This is one area where you do have a choice. Think mobile phones are safe? Think they have the 'All Clear'? Why does the rest of the world refuse to accept our 'safe' UK Government approved emission levels. This article will EXPLAIN how journalists and scientists make such glib statements - it tells you why a 'massive' 500,000 person sample is actually too small to get a sensible reading on brain tumours. And why looking for increases in brain tumours might just be a diversionary 'red herring'. Melatonin levels, our hormones and our immune systems are at much greater risk.

Here we also look at the Government Sponsored 2005/6 review of the link between EMF's and breast cancer; through hormones such as melatonin, prolactin and IGF-1. The Committee, reviewing over 600 research studies, found no threat - read the report, you may disagree. Finally, if you want to go further, we attach George Carlo's recent paper on 'Mobile phones and cancer' in which he explains why the 'Danish Cohort Study' which supposedly gave the world the 'All Clear', didn't.

Of Masts and Men
(with apologies to Hemmingway)

At last! Local Councils are actually rebelling. For a number of years, ever since a simplistic court ruling that masts were safe, councils have really only been able to turn down a new mast on aesthetic grounds for fear of legal challenge. But then many are hidden in petrol station forecourts or up church steeples! Many are put up before planning consent.

This was despite the Stewart report recommending caution near schools, or a mounting set of data showing all was not well. Here are three reports. First one by Dr Grahame Blackwell, written especially for icon on the latest burst of media controversy; the second a review of the latest press on the developing masts controversy, and thirdly an article by Eileen O'Connor, herself a breast cancer 'victim'. Victim? Yes, she believes her cancer was caused by the local mast.

What is it with WiFi? How can this be happening, unchecked?

2 million new users in the last 18 months in the UK. Often they put their lap top - on their laps. Whole towns are now Hotspots. Yet, where is the research - any research - that this new technology is safe? The BBC's Panorama has just investigated WiFi, now in almost 70 per cent of British schools. And they found that the radiation was three times greater than the radiation levels obtained if the school was in a direct mast beam - and the Government urges that the latter should never happen to a school! Why is it not urging caution here? Do parents, teachers, school governors have an idea of potential risks?

We give you a summary of the Panorama programme, a few of the recent press articles on masts, and a reminder of the big issue in a specially written article for icon by Professor Olle Johansson of the Karolinska Institute.

The Precautionary Principle Why CANCERactive uniquely adopts this stance.

CANCERactive is the UK's Number 1 complementary and alternative therapy charity. Our stance is always to try to help patients work out what may have caused, and may be maintaining, their cancer. As a result we are also the UK's number 1 charity for Prevention..

We believe in the Precautionary Principle. Where there is top quality research evidence and expert opinion expressing concerns about increased risks, we believe you have the right to know, rather than wait until something is conclusively proven to 'cause' cancer, or the mechanism is fully understood. Indeed, it is almost naive, one could say negligent, for Governments and Health Authorities to wait for a single 'cause' of cancer to be proven: Cancer is a complex multi-step process and many factors probably contribute. While Governments dilly-dally, we are all being exposed to factors where science has shown a serious cause for concern. Where is the protection our Governments are supposed to afford us?
