Wireless radiation causes cancer, according to the latest scientific findings

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

cell towers(NaturalHealth365) The National Association for Children and Safe Technology (NACST) is calling on children’s health and cancer prevention organizations to make the issue of children’s exposure to wireless radiation in educational facilities a priority for 2015.

A 2014 study on wireless radiation, by the Hardell Group in Sweden, found a 3-fold risk with twenty-five years or more of cordless and cell phone use. Perhaps more worrying is the finding that people who first used cell or cordless phones before the age of twenty had the highest risk.

The science is clear: Cell phone use increases our risk of cancer

Another study by the same researchers found a correlation between wireless phone use and lower survival rates for people diagnosed with the most malignant form of brain tumor, gliomas. These two studies followed the CERENAT study which found that, “risks were higher for gliomas, temporal tumors, occupational and urban mobile phone use. “

The biggest wireless study carried out, the $25 million Interphone Study, found that: “regular use of a cell phone by adults can significantly increase the risk of gliomas by 40% with 1640 hours or more of use (this is about one half hour per day over ten years).” Given the established and emerging science, the NACST calls for students to be provided with a safe learning environment, free from wireless radiation.

Wireless technology – in educational settings – pose a serious threat to children’s health

The nations schools are now rife with wireless exposures because, as the NACST states, “there has been a national movement to digitalize learning in our schools”. The NACST points out these high exposures in classrooms are caused by:

  • Industrial strength routers
  • Thirty or more handheld devices or laptops – which all emit radiation

These exposures represent an unprecedented health risk to children because they are being exposed 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, for their entire school careers. This is in addition to their exposures outside of the educational setting, which given that most children now have cell phones and most homes are equipped with Wi-Fi is not inconsequential.

Children absorb up to ten times more radiation than adults

Children are more vulnerable than adults to the effects of wireless radiation for a variety of reasons:

  • Their bodies are still developing and the impacts of chronic exposure to radiation are more profound.
  • Research shows children absorb up to ten times more radiation than adults.
  • Safe limits for children have never been established.

This is an urgent ‘call for action’.

The National Association for Children and Safe Technology wants to see the following changes – immediately:

1. All new school technology should be hardwired.

2. All existing wireless systems should be replaced with hardwired systems.

3. The implementation of primary prevention efforts. The public needs to be educated as to the simple steps they can take to reduce exposure.

EMF exposures linked to a long list of chronic diseases

We forget that electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are all around us because we can’t see them, touch them or taste them. These exposures are linked to a long list of adverse biological effects including DNA damage and many serious diseases including cancer, brain tumors, and cardiovascular disease. The Bioinitiative Report details these adverse effects extensively.

EMFs come in different shapes and forms. There are 3 common forms of EMFs present in our homes, schools and places of work:

  • Magnetic fields – wherever current flows magnetic fields are present. The more current that flows the higher the magnetic field that is generated.
  • Electric fields – created by variations in voltage, these EMFs are present even if no current is flowing.
  • Radio frequency radiation – commonly known as wireless or cell phone radiation.

How dangerous are the EMF fields lurking inside your home?

Many common household devices emit all three forms of EMFs to a lesser or greater extent. For instance cell phones emit primarily radio frequency radiation but the battery in a cell phone is also the source of low level magnetic and electric fields.

Household wiring is a source of magnetic and electric fields, if there are wiring errors the magnetic fields can be significant. But household wiring can also be a source of radio frequency since the wiring system in your home can act as an antenna, emitting and receiving ambient radio frequency signals.

Take action and protect yourself from harm.

Measuring with an EMF meter is the only way to know what your exposures are. A good starter meter is the Trifield EMF meter – since it can measure electric, magnetic and radio frequency radiation. Though admittedly it’s sensitivity to radio frequency radiation is quite limited. Nevertheless, it’s a good choice of meter because it combines three meters in one and it’s very easy to use.

Once you have a good EMF meter it’s child’s play to detect the EMFs in your environment. Slowly go through each of the rooms in your house, taking readings for each type of radiation and then eliminate or mitigate the hotspots.

Studies show that EMFs impact the quality of our sleep and the production of melatonin, an important hormone. Because of this the best place to start is the bedroom. Anything electrical in the bedroom is a potential source of EMFs.

That also means making sure your kids don’t sleep with their cell phones on. Better still don’t allow them to use their cell phone in the bedroom.

Your children need protecting at school but also you do need to take the necessary steps to protect them, and yourself, at home from these potentially very harmful exposures.

    I live on the edge of the city in the country. We have 2 cell towers on both sides of us, each a little over one mile down the road from us. Believe it or not, on occasion, when I drive those two roads I see “waves” in my vision. This doesn’t occur all the time — only periodically. Once I am past that ‘area,’ my vision returns to normal again. It is really bizarre. I first thought it was a silent migraine because I used to get those but I have since realized it isn’t. It isn’t the same. These only occur in the range of the cell tower and I have since wondered if the EMF’s are visible when the tower is ‘active.’ I don’t know and that part is only speculative. but I now know without a doubt that something must be triggered neurologically in me to “see” that.

    Our house has steel siding and because of that, we cannot get cell reception inside. At one time we invested in a mini-cell tower (extender) that the cell phone company sells. I did not know the time that my landlord installed it but my body certainly did. That night was so bad, I felt like I was on high alert. Over the next three days, it became so bad that I was an emotional wreck not to mention physical experiencing various cardiac symptoms, sleep disturbances, etc. I finally had to ask that it be removed due to it’s effects on me. The family I rent from thought I was overreacting but were very cordial and agreed to remove it. Since that experience, I got rid of my cordless phones (didn’t own a cell) and turn off the router whenever it isn’t in use. I can empathize with those who are EMF or dirty electricity sensitive. I only hope and pray that this nation wakes up fast to this growing threat and follows those countries who are taking action to protect their people.

    I believe this article wholeheartedly.

    I still believe as Dr Simoncini does, cancer is a fungus! Radiation would not cause it as is believed so many things do. It may act as acid does and feed it and make it grow, but doesn’t cause it. If so why then wouldn’t everyone be getting cancer??
    Of course many people are BUT as one of your articles has exposed doctors who tell people they have cancer – and don’t .

    I believe the biggest threat to our lives is our diet. SUGAR is the worst thing anyone can consume. It is pure acid, feeds cancer and depletes the B vitamins. B vitamins are necessary for nerve health which might be causing nerve problems in brains which cause Alzhiemers . Sugar is in everything and every aisle of the grocery store!
    Now soy is also and it is very detrimental to our health.
    God help us!!!

    For several years I watched my mother using wireless headphones to better hear the TV. It disturbed me to see her doing this; I couldn’t help but wonder what effect this might be having on her brain. She also used a cordless phone and her alarm clock was within inches of her head as she slept. She was very mainstream and never believed in any of the concerns I had. A few years later she was diagnosed with a glioblastoma. Coincidence? People can pay with their lives for not being open-minded or by refusing when they are elderly to listen to their children, who only have their best interests in mine.

    Finally a video that explains with a simple visual how nuclear radiation causes cancer. The video explains a Nobel Prize winning discovery. Also, researchers at UCLA published just last year that radiation ‘therapy’ increases the malignancy of healthy cells thirty times. The video will explain why.
