New Report on Cell Phone Radiation Details Flaws in Industry Study

There are 14 comments on the technologyexpert.blogspot.com story from Aug 26, 2009, titled New Report on Cell Phone Radiation Details Flaws in Industry Study. In it, technologyexpert.blogspot.com reports that:

A new report again brings up the oft-asked question, "is there a link between cell phone use and brain tumors," AKA "do cell phones cause brain cancer." What's most interesting is that the report additionally details eleven design flaws of the 13-country, Telecom-funded Interphone study, which was intended to determine the risks of brain tumors with cell phone use, though its full publication has been held up for years.

Yes they do.

I know somebody who had one removed on the side of his brain where he uses his phone. So have many many many other people. Cancer is on the rise, and it is a known fact that radiation causes cancer. Cell phones use radio waves.

What is silly, are the people who actually trust private for-profit organizations to do studies on their own products.......

Are we really that dumb?

Do we really expect them to fund a research report on their own products and have it actually tell us the truth?

:/

I guess we are.

Just look at the health care debate.

I blame the TV generation.

Come to think of it, there IS something to be said for text messaging - at least when you text you don't have to put the phone next to your brain.

Will text messaging create testicular cancer or rheumatoid arthritis?...

BTW, that's an early indicator of brain cancer....

>Flaw 6: Exposure to Other Transmitting Sources Are Not Considered

The article is not so complete.

Leaving aside whether cell phone use, in particular, can be shown to cause or contribute to brain cancer, it would be nice to see some stats showing brain cancer rates have increased since the mass adoption of mobile phones in areas where these phones have heavy penetration. There should be _some_ spike in rates if there is an effect even with the long latency period, and one would at least consider that given the ubiquity of mobile phone usage that brain cancer rates would not only be increasing, but be increasing faster than other cancers, like, say, liver cancer.

Then there's the dicier problem of exposure to all these microwave towers and electric power grids and wifi networks and bluetooth devices and tasers - sorry, different thread - and whether they have biological effects...which unfortunately would obscure my preceding question about the rate of increase for brain cancer versus other cancers....

My own risk versus benefit assessment at this juncture, even if something were proven, would be that I can't live without a mobile phone.(Although an alternate, benign technology would be nice if cell phone usage could be shown to be detrimental.)

I can live without other likely cancer causes or co factors such as cigarette smoking or eating vast quantities or red meat or drinking lots of alcohol.

My second graph left out something which obscured my attempted point:

My name is Kevin, and I am an American citizen living in Canada. One year ago I was diagnosed with a deadly brain tumor. I had seven ounces of cancer removed my my right side-brain. The only thing my tumor did not contain was the logo from my cell phone.

The first question the emergency room doctors asked my wife was, what side does he talk on his cell phone: The answer, my right.

6 years ago when I met my wife I was living in the south east US. we talked every night for hour at a time, until my phone went dead.

Ironicaly, Doctors would later determine that my cancer got its start around the time I met my then girlfriend, and now wife.

Since my surgery and following chemo and raidiation I am happy to report that I am cancer free. Not even a glimpse of cancer has returned.

Personally, I attribute the success to me no longer using cell phones as much as I do my treatment and surgery.

There is no doubt in my mind, or in my tumor that cell phones cause cancer.

Unfortunatly several piers that I met during treatment did not share this theory and openly continued using their cell phones with no concerns. Two of those of those friends have passed away in the last 30 days. My last MRI from two weeks ago...CLEAR.

My name is Kevin Bloodworth and I am 38 years old cancer free, and I will never use another cell phone for as long as God allows me to live.

Anecdotal, anyone? And a latency period of about six years?

Maybe male text messagers should all invest in lead bibs like the ones dentists put on your lap when X-raying your teeth.

This happened to a very good friend of mine too. He is now > $100,000.00 in debt, despite going to Cook County hospital.

This issue hasn't even hit critical mass yet.

mobile phone radiation is not harmful in small doses however if you stay on the phone for long periods and talk along with heavy background noise ie say engine noise etc then you may run the risk of body cell damage; note normal body cells have the power of recovery from short bursts of low level radiation; mobile phones contain solid state magnatrons which are reasonably harmless ie; they give out low level bursts of micro-wave energy considered safe by many qualified engineers; being very very close to mobile phone masts may not be safe needs further research;

Update ::: Every so often, like most of us, I am guilty of googleing my own name, LOL. I came across this previous post I made, and thought there would be a young wife, or professional that may be standing on the same door-step where I stood, now 4 years ago.

It was not an easy journey, often times I felt as if the cure was worse than the cause. Other times I even thought worse.

I'm still happy to report that 4.5 years later I remain cancer free. Every month since my original post I have received great care from the Canadian Medical system, who just two weeks ago has released me from treatment & follow-on.

I continue to suffer some residual effects of the surgery; Tennitus, Vertigo, and chronic stabbing pain in and around my surgical area. It is incomprehendible to say the least. My wife produced a photo montage set to music on my personal outreach site Upward outreach dot com. I admit that as I sat at my desk watching each image pass I recall with tears my thoughts as I felt so hopeless inside, watching my children during Holidays, holding my family, and new born children wondering how thier lives would turn out without me. God knows we have enough Lady Gaga's and Adam Lambert's, LOL In all seriousness, it is sureal to even be sitting here typing this, and my only driver is that somewhere some hopeless father or wife is going to type in Brain Tumor Life expectancy, and find my story and read my words and believe as I did then, that people can beat this, this is a great day and age to be sick, and your mindset, faith in something greater than yourself, and the energy and encouragement that we draw from others around us can move mountains of cancer, circumstance, statistics, and any other negative bearing down on you or from with in you. In as much as I still remain confident that the particular cell phone I was using was the catalyst to spiral my brains cell production out of control, I believe that there is much to be learned, and understand about how our sensitive cells and tissues react under long term exposure to any electro-magnetic wave or frequency. My use was un-common. Probably negligent, but should be taken for granted by anyone who's lifestyle was any where near mine submerged in technology and communication devices.

One thing I have learned over the last 4 years. I am simply not that important, and I can still be successful if all I had was a rotery phone. I've proven that you can be, and we can remain connected without any device with-in 12-18" of our body.

In closing I just want to add, I did not arrive here today to stimulate a debate, moreover to give hope with a dash of caution.

I remain,

Here with a purpose,

Kevin Bloodworth
