NEW STUDY on Long-Term Use of Mobile and Cordless Phones

Dr. Erica Maller-Blythe – Electomagnetic Radiation, Health and Children 2014 (1:10 mins)
"Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe presented this outstanding talk on electromagnetic fields and their possible effects at a meeting of the Physicians' Health Initiative for Radiation and Environment (PHIRE). In this talk she discussed the difficulty of assessing exposure accurately, the various known mechanistic effects of electromagnetic fields, and the varied susceptibility of human beings to different exposures of various kind. This is one of the best you'll find anywhere at the moment to learn about some of the possible effects of mobile phones, cordless phones, WiFi and tablets, and it's freely available online.”

Teenage Brain Tumour Epidemic – What Parents Don’t Know About Cellphones

New report and a call for an increase in IARC classification of RF radiation from a 2a (probable) human carcinogen to a 1—A HUMAN CARCINOGEN!! //
