Top cancer expert says wifi is as dangerous as tobacco and asbestos

In this Daily Mail article top cancer expert Professor Anthony Miller says wifi is as dangerous as tobacco and asbestos

Prof Anthony Miller of Toronto University couldn’t be blunter, saying: ‘[Wifi] should not be allowed in schools.’

Professor Miller – who was Director of Canada’s National Cancer Institute’s Epidemiology Unit, and has held top posts in the World Health Organisation and the German Cancer Research Centre – is not alone in his fears.

He is the latest in a long line of top scientists to warn that the invisible waves of electromagnetic radiation that now constantly wash over us all – dubbed ‘electrosmog’ even by some academics – may cause a future cancer epidemic, and that it’s children who are most at risk.

Some concerned nations have already begun banning or restricting wifi, as well as mobile phones – another source of electrosmog – in schools.


France has banned wifi from nursery schools (the younger the child, the greater the danger), and restricted its use in teaching children up to the age of 11.

It has also banned mobile phones from all schools, partly because they are socially disruptive. But the country’s official Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety has recommended that tablets and other wifi devices should be regulated as phones are.

Cyprus has also banned wifi from kindergartens, and only permits it in the staff offices of junior schools for administration purposes. Israel also prohibits it in pre-schools and kindergartens, and allows it only to be gradually introduced in class as children get older. The Israeli city of Haifa has hardwired its school system so children can used computers that don’t need wifi to connect to the internet.

Frankfurt, meanwhile, hardwired 80 per cent of all its schools more than a decade ago, while the school authorities in Salzburg, Austria, wrote to headteachers officially advising them not to use wifi as long ago as 2005.

Ghent in Belgium has banned wifi in pre-schools and daycare centres, while individual local authorities in Spain and Italy have removed it from all their schools. Even faraway French Polynesia has prohibited it in nursery schools and limits it in primary ones. And so the list goes on.

Here in Britain, by contrast, there is only complacency and inaction – despite authoritative early warnings of trouble ahead.

Until Public Health England (formerly PHA) follow suit, the recommendation from us at Beneficial Environments is to try and reduce your everyday exposure to electosmog, by taking these sensible precautions:

  • Use a wired Internet solution during the day where possible, to connect to your devices and either disable Wifi at the router itself or use a shielded router bag
  • Use an airtube head set, or better still use one with an EMF filter (See our latest product Oktapus)
  • Disable data (3G/4G), bluetooth and wifi on your phone when it is not being used
  • Switch off your wifi router at night
  • Switch mobile phones off or to flight mode at night
  • Charge devices away from your body and your bed

 

Federal Research Raises Flags about Cancer Risks from Cellphone Radiation

Federal Research Raises Flags about Cancer Risks from Cellphone Radiation based on this research.

The research found that male rats exposed to radio-frequency radiation had a greater chance of developing malignant brain cancer, tumors in the heart and tumors in other organs. Various tumors were also observed in mice exposed to radio-frequency radiation. The amount of radiation to which the laboratory animals were exposed included the levels emitted by cellphones millions of people use everyday.

“This is the most authoritative study published that connects cancer with cellphone radiation – it should raise alarms for policymakers and awareness for all Americans,” said Olga Naidenko, Ph.D., senior science advisor at EWG. “These studies should have been done before more than 90 percent of Americans, including children, started using this technology day in and day out.”

Mobile Phones and Cancer

Epidemiological studies have begun to show us that low-frequency, non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation correlates with cancer. *

In recent years, a significant share of research into EMF radiation has investigated the impact of mobile phones and cancer.

In 2009, the Journal of Clinical Oncology published findings of a team of seven scientists, who reviewed 23 epidemiological studies on the link between mobile phones and cancer. The team concluded:

although as a whole the data varied, among the 10 higher quality studies, we found a harmful association between cell [mobile] phone use and tumor risk [cancer]. The lowest quality studies, which failed to meet scientific best practices, were primarily industry funded.
The 13 studies that investigated cell phone use fo 10 or more years found a significant harmful association with tumor risk, especially for brain tumors, giving us ample reason for concern about long-term use.

The point about long term exposure is important, many industry funded studies are based on short term exposure and these studies often conclude there is no link between mobile phones and cancer (or indeed other sources of EMF). These results also suggest that, as with tobacco smoke, cancer may be a long-term result based on repeated and/or extended exposures to EM radiation sources.

Other recent research out of Israel reinforces these findings. Israelis are heavy mobile phone users who, on average, increased cell phone usage six-fold between 1997 and 2006. In 2008 Dr. Siegal Sadetzki published a study in the American Journal of Epidemiology that concluded heavy mobile phone users (at least 22 hours per month) were at least 50% more likely to develop cancer of the parotid gland (one of the salivary glands) than those who never or rarely used mobile phones.

In 2011 a review of deaths between 1970 and 2006 from Israel’s National Cancer Registry found that ‘the total number of parotid gland cancers in Israel increased from 4-fold from 1970 to 2006, whereas other major salivary gland cancers remained constant. This result can be thought of as a control experiment. During this period, when parotid gland cancer was inceasing in Israel along with mobile phone use, cancer of the submandibular and sublingual glands (shielded from mobile phone radiation by the jaw bone and tongue, respectively remained constant.

So what can you do to protect yourself from mobile phones and cancer?

  • Use an airtube headset or speaker mode
  • Disable wireless and data when not needed
  • Put the mobile phone into ‘airplane mode’ when not needed at all
  • Do not keep your mobile phone in your pocket
  • Turn off the mobile phone (or ‘airplane’ mode) at night before sleeping

Ex head of the World Health Organisation warns on mobile phone usage

Ex head of the World Health Organisation warns on mobile phone usage.

One of the world’s most respected people – a leader in sustainability, a peacemaker, 3 times prime minister of Norway – Gro Harlem Bruntland has hinted before that she experiences symptoms of electrosensitivity – but in a recent inetrview has clearly stated that she immediatley gets headaches if she puts a mobile phone to her head.

From the IEMFA, 20 August 2015:

Ex-WHO General-Director and Ex-Prime Minister of Norway: Wireless Technology Has Negative Health Effects. There Is No Doubt.

On Friday the 14th of August 2015, retired WHO General-Director and Prime Minister of Norway, Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, was interviewed by the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten*.

One of the issues raised in the interview was her current thoughts on wireless radiation. Her statement was crystal clear.

Watch the relevant clip from the interview here, subtitled in English by Citizens’ Radiation Protection, Norway.

We are grateful to Gro, for her clear and honest response.

Electrosmog is real

Noel Edmonds on health risks of electrosmog in Huffington Post

Noel Edmonds is a TV celebrity in the UK. He has spoken his mind on something which is affecting the lives of an increasing number of us.

Electrosmog is real. It is the international name for electromagnetic pollution which is recognized by many authorities and governments around the world. The United Nations cancer committee the IARC categorises electrosmog as a class 2B carcinogen because of its proven links to cancer in animals. France has recently outlawed Wi-Fi in crèches and limited use primary schools because of the health risks. Over 200+ of professional scientists have recently written to Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations to request that permitted electrosmog levels to be reduced significantly. The scientists want electrosmog classified the same as smoking.

Increasingly people are exhibiting symptoms of electrosensitivity such as headaches, palpitations, memory loss, fatigue, sleeplessness. Reducing radiation exposure levels often clears up the condition.
