Federal Research Raises Flags about Cancer Risks from Cellphone Radiation - February 02, 2018

Federal Research Raises Flags about Cancer Risks from Cellphone Radiation
Data from the largest-ever animal study of cellphone radiation effects, released today by the federal National Toxicology Program, confirms earlier evidence from human studies that cellphone radiation increases the risk of cancer.

Conclusion
Under the conditions of this 2-year whole-body exposure study, there was some evidence of carcinogenic activity of GSM-modulated cell phone RFR at 900 MHz in male Hsd:Sprague Dawley SD rats based on the incidences of malignant schwannoma in the heart. The incidences of adenoma or carcinoma (combined) in the prostate gland, malignant glioma and benign or malignant granular cell tumors in the brain, adenoma of the pars distalis in the pituitary gland, pheochromocytoma (benign, malignant, or complex combined) in the adrenal medulla, and pancreatic islet cell adenoma or carcinoma (combined) may have been related to cell phone RFR exposure. There was no evidence of carcinogenic activity of GSM-modulated cell phone RFR at 900 MHz in female Hsd:Sprague Dawley SD rats administered 1.5, 3, or 6 W/kg. There was some evidence of carcinogenic activity of CDMA- modulated cell phone RFR at 900 MHz in male Hsd:Sprague Dawley SD rats based on the incidences of malignant schwannoma in the heart.

The incidences of malignant glioma in the brain, adenoma of the pars distalis in the pituitary gland, and adenoma or carcinoma (combined) of the liver may have been related to cell phone RFR exposure. There was equivocal evidence of carcinogenic activity of CDMA-modulated cell phone RFR at 900 MHz in female Hsd:Sprague Dawley SD rats based on the incidences of malignant glioma in the brain and pheochromocytoma (benign, malignant, or complex combined) in the adrenal medulla.

Increases in nonneoplastic lesions in the heart, brain, and prostate gland of male rats, and of the heart, thyroid gland, and adrenal gland in female rats occurred with exposures to GSM cell phone RFR at 900 MHz. Increases in nonneoplastic lesions of the heart, brain, and prostate gland occurred in males, and of the brain in females exposed to CDMA cell phone RFR at 900 MHz.

Microwave News
reported today that the vice-chair of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), Maria Feychting, has been trying to convince the scientific community to dismiss the $25 million cell phone cancer study conducted by the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP).

According to Microwave News, Feychting claimed at scientific meetings held in Germany and Sweden last month that the pathology analyses in the NTP study were not properly blinded. This issue was originally raised by an official reviewer of the study and was laid to rest in the NTP interim report [https://www.biorxiv.org/content/early/2016/06/23/055699] released in May, 2016.

Several researchers in the U.S. and Europe expressed their concerns to Microwave News about Feychting's misguided efforts to undermine the credibility of the NTP cell phone study.

The Microwave News article reports that Feychting's declaration of personal interests filed with ICNIRP is incomplete as she has not fully disclosed potential conflicts of interest due to her role in the Swedish COSMOS study which has industry funding.

Cancers in the head and neck are increasing in Sweden
Cancers in the head and the neck are increasing in Sweden according to the latest cancer incidence data from the Swedish Cancer Registry. Cancers in the thyroid and the mouth are among the cancers that have seen the sharpest rise during the last decade but also the trend for cancers of the pituitary are on the rise. Among men aged 50 -79 years malignant brain tumours, grade 3-4 are also increasing visibly. The increase of these cancers has coincided with increasing use of mobile phones during the same time period while the increasing trend of malignant brain tumours, gliomas, might be an effect of long term use of mobile phones.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared video game addiction a new category of mental disorder.
The basic element that gets so many gamers hooked is the instant gratification of it all, MacDonald said."As soon as you press a button, you're getting a very basic but very powerful reinforcement, be it sound, be it light, be it an achievement of some sort," MacDonald said. "It's very reinforcing. So it's not surprising to see it become something people have a lot of problems with."

ARC Press Release 30 Oct. 2017: Global Burden of Cancer Among Young Adults Aged 20-39:


World Health Organization, radiofrequency radiation and health - a hard nut to crack (Review)
Lennart Hardell - It turned out that five of the six members of the Core Group in charge of the draft are affiliated with International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), an industry loyal NGO, and thus have a serious conflict of interest. Just as by ICNIRP, evaluation of non-thermal biological effects from RF radiation are dismissed as scientific evidence of adverse health effects in the Monograph. This has provoked many comments sent to the WHO. However, at a meeting on March 3, 2017 at the WHO Geneva office it was stated that the WHO has no intention to change the Core Group.

This Is the Worst Place to Store Your Cell Phone
“There is a direct correlation between the radiation from a cell phone and tumor growth. The radiation can also change the structure of our DNA, affect male fertility, and has been linked to depression and heart irregularities.  If placed in the pant pocket, the radiation can weaken the pelvic bones and decrease bone density.”

The Berkeley Cell Phone “Right to Know” Ordinance
The Berkeley city ordinance requires sellers to inform customers that keeping a device in a pocket or bra could lead to radiation exposure that exceeds federal guidelines. For years, cell-phone manufacturers have vigorously resisted state and local government attempts to require warning signs about radiation exposure even though their own user manuals advise caution about carrying or holding the phone close to your body while it’s transmitting. These warnings are buried deep in the tiny print.

Cancer Expert Declares Cell Phone and Wireless Radiation as Carcinogenic to Humans

Transition to cellphone-free classrooms smooth: principal
A virtual ban on cellphone use at Central Middle School — a first in the Greater Victoria School District — has already had an effect.  “It’s sort of surreal — you come into the building and there are no phones around,” said Central principal Topher Macintosh, noting only two phones have had to confiscated since the policy kicked in in September, although some students might have cellphones stashed in their backpacks.

Li-Fi eyes opportunity as France bans Wi-Fi in schools

The French government has moved to outlaw Wi-Fi in nurseries, schools and childcare centres that cater for children under six. The move is offering inspiration to the creators of Li-Fi, a system that uses light to provide Internet access.
LIfi Will Face ID on iPhone X Damage Your Retina?
The main biological effects of IR-A radiation are infrared cataracts and flash burns to the cornea due to temperature rise in the tissue. But IR-A radiation wavelengths are close to the visible light wavelengths and are transmitted to a small extent to the retina; permanent retinal damage can occur if exposure is prolonged. As wavelengths increase into the IR-B and IR-C regions the radiation is no longer transmitted to the retina but corneal flash burn injuries can still be caused.” – University of Warwick, Health and Safety Department

WARNING: Virtual Reality Headsets Have Never Been Tested For Safety On Children

Parents, Teachers and Students:

Virtual Reality Headsets have never been tested for safety for children and yet, our schools and libraries are purchasing and promoting this product.  To operate these VR Headsets it requires a smart phone, emitting microwave radiation, to be inserted directly in front of a child’s eyes.

vr
              headsets

School Districts have not informed parents, teachers or students of the Safety Manuals and Disclaimers mandated by the federal government warning of the permanent health risks from the prolonged use. Parents have not given their informed consent for their children to use this untested and unregulated technology in our classrooms.

Phonegate: French Government Data Indicates Cell Phones Expose Consumers To Radiation Levels Higher Than Manufacturers Claim

The response from the Vancouver Island Regional Libraries stated the parents would have to sign a detailed Virtual Reality Rules, Terms and Conditions and Waiver.  Virtual Reality Programs have become popular because of the commercials aimed at our children, as the next “must have” product to purchase. Parents will feel pressured to sign this waiver, with their children begging to use the Virtual Reality Program and believe that our government would never allow this technology, with the potential of serious injuries, to hit the store shelves if unsafe. Parents, beware, it is now up to the public to prove Virtual Reality Headsets using smart phones, is unsafe and should never be part of the educational curriculum until scientific peer review studies have proven Microwave Radiation Exposure is safe for children.

Below is a link to the EMF-Portal, an extensive literature database with an inventory of over 25,000 publications and over 5,000 summaries of individual peer reviewed scientific studies on the health effects of electromagnetic fields.

The specific age groups suggested for the different products are for age appropriate content, NOT safety.

·      Oculus Rift: no one under the age of 13 may use the Oculus Rift.
·      Merge: no one under the age of 10 may use the Merge VR.  If under 13 years old, the consent of a parent or guardian is required.
·      View Master VR: no one under the age of 7 years old may use the View Master VR.  If between the ages 7 and 13 years old, the consent of a parent or guardian is required.

Letter from Parentsforsafeschools to Vancouver Island Regional Library and Greater Victoria Regional Library

Response from Vancouver Island Regional Library

Virtual Reality Rules, Terms and Conditions and Waiver

Mainstream media is own and operated by the wireless industry and they will not cover stories that will affect the potential sale of their products.  Please contact your school principal and school board and let them know this technology has never been tested for safety on our children and we don’t want wireless Virtual Reality Headsets in our schools.

Thank you,
