Wireless Radiation Concerns in the News Again
Posted by GreenSwanStaff at June 4th, 2014
Martin Blank, PhD gave a presentation last week to a packed hall in Lafayette, California. He was sharing highlights from recent research and his newly published book, “Overpowered.” The data and science surrounding the topic of adverse effects from wireless radiation exposure is overwhelming. Parents and grandparents seemed particularly concerned about cell towers near schools and Wi-Fi use throughout the school day.
Physicians are speaking out as well. Just published in the U.K. is an article highlighting one man’s battle with brain cancer. Neil Whitfield told the Telegraph that his doctor was “absolutely convinced” that mobile phone use caused his cancer. “He told me that mobile phones were going to be the smoking gun of the 21st century in terms of cancers.” Mr. Whitfield was left deaf in one ear and with facial paralysis after his surgery. Today, he works without mobile devices and will not allow his sons to use mobile phones as well.
Denis Henshaw, Emeritus Professor at Bristol University and Honorary Scientific Director of the Children with Cancer UK charity states that “the dangers [of cell phone use] are being seriously underplayed… We are seeing a rise in brain tumors in adults and children.” He believes further that cell phone packaging should carry public health warnings such as found on cigarette packaging.
To be on the safe side, consumers need to take matters into their own hands. Use cell phones sparingly and away from the head and body. Wi-Fi should only be in the “on” condition when being used for internet connection. Turn it off at night and use a wired Ethernet cable as much as possible. Encourage your children’s schools to switch back to cable connections and dispose of Wi-Fi despite the “convenience” of wireless connection.
