The inconvenient truth about cancer and mobile phones

Telcos dismiss claims about mobiles being bad for our health – but is that because studies showing a link to cancer have been cast into doubt by the industry?

The Micro Wave Debate Continues – Forty Years Later, Not Much Has Changed

Close to 40 years after its first publication, The Microwave Debate, Nicholas Steneck’s history of research and regulation of microwave health effects, is back in print —this time in Norwegian. The new translation comes with an epilogue by Thomas Butler, a professor at Ireland’s Cork University Business School, who has contributed seven chapters —about 30,000 words— to bring Steneck’s history up to the present.

Our Bacteria: Are They Trying to Tell us Something? – Olle Johansson, Associate Professor

A US DARPA-funded study* has found that bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus, biofilms communicate using frequencies that are in the range that are used by Wi-Fi and 5G C-band. The experiment found that “notable radiation is observed in the 3-4 GHz band” coming from the Staphylococcus aureus biofilms. It is part of a dangerous development I, Olle Johansson, have tried to emphasize and warn about for decades.

Creation of ARIEM (Association for Research at International Level on EHS and MCS)

We are pleased to announce the creation, of the A.R.I.E.M. Association with the main objective of developing knowledge on EHS and MCS through high level research involving the best teams engaged in this research in France, in collaboration with the best international teams. This Association is under the patronage of an international scientific council composed of high-level experts.

New Study Shows Health Damage from Cell Phone Towers

The mobile industry relies on the claims that the radiation from the mobile masts’ base stations is so weak that it is impossible to have any health effects. The research shows something else. Here you get a German review of a new laboratory study that demonstrates biological effects that have been measured in detail. The new study shows that even fairly weak radiation from mobile masts creates oxidative stress. This study comes on top of others that have shown that health problems increase in frequency the closer people live to the masts.

Dumbphone Sales Are Soaring As People Revolt Against “Overwhelming” Smartphones

According to the BBC, dumbphones are enjoying a revival. Google searches for them jumped by 89% between 2018 and 2021, according to a report by software firm SEMrush. And while sales figures are hard to come by, one report said that global purchases of dumbphones were due to hit one billion units last year, up from 400 million in 2019. This compares to worldwide sales of 1.4 billion smart phones last year, following a 12.5% decline in 2020.

IS TECHNOLOGY DESTROYING OUR CAPACITY TO THINK CLEARLY?

What has been missed until recently is the fact that the rate of increase in cell phone usage mirrors the growth in incidence of mental illness especially among the young. For example, the diagnosis of bipolar disorder among children and teens up to age 19 years has increased dramatically since the early 90’s.

‘What’s wrong with Australia’s radiation standard? Australian physicist explains’

Why does Australia’s radiation standard allow the Australian public to be exposed to much more wireless radiation than the Russian standard does? Why doesn’t our radiation standard give us adequate protection against 5G radiation? Lyn McLean talks to Australian physicist Vic Leach who explains the limitations of Australian and international standards and what we need to know about 5G radiation.

More research needed on cell tower impacts

There needs to be independent, well-funded research on the effects of non-ionizing radiation on human and other life forms. The parallels with the tobacco industry are thought-provoking.
