Cellphone Radiation Causes Cancer in Rats--25 million dollar U.S. Study

O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

"A $25 million National Toxicology Program study has found that exposure to cellphone radiation caused cancer in rats.

"Radiation health advocates, citing the story yesterday in microwavenews.com, said the study is sufficient evidence to raise the classification of radio-frequency radiation from "possible carcinogenic" (Group 2B) to "carcinogenic (Group1). . .

Wall St. Journal on Cellphones Scratches Surface of EMR Threat

O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

"The Wall Street Journal May 23 spent 3,500+ words arguing whether cellphones should have warning labels--of course they should. Missed was the galaxy of pulsed radiation threats to all and especially children.

"WSJ has thrown a bone to the electro-magnetic field (EMF) threat. But a much better use of the space would have been covering the four hours of detailed, scientific-based research on radiation presented May 22 at the Left Forum in New York. . . .

Cell Phone Radiation Boosts Cancer Rates in Animals

$25 Million NTP Study Finds Brain Tumors - MICROWAVE NEWS - U.S. Government Expected To Advise Public of Health Risk

"The cell phone cancer controversy will never be the same again.

"The U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) is expected to issue a public announcement that cell phone radiation presents a cancer risk for humans. The move comes soon after its recently completed study showed statistically significant increases in cancer among rats that had been exposed to GSM or CDMA signals for two-years.

"Discussions are currently underway among federal agencies on how to inform the public about the new findings. NTP senior managers believe that these results should be released as soon as possible because just about everyone is exposed to wireless radiation all the time and therefore everyone is potentially at risk.

"The new results contradict the conventional wisdom, advanced by doctors, biologists, physicists, epidemiologists, engineers, journalists and government officials, among other pundits, that such effects are impossible . . .

"Cell Phone radiation damages the reproductive organs as detailed by Dr. Devra Davis. More than one hundred physicians, scientists and public health professionals from around the world have joined together to express their concern about the risk that wireless radiation poses to pregnancy and to urge pregnant women to limit their exposures. http://www.babysafeproject.org/



UK experts say we can expect this next generation of youngsters exposed to iPads, cordless phones w base stations, baby monitors, Wi-Fi and wireless games to have damaged reproductive organs and show signs of early-onset ALZHEIMERS by their 30's and 40's. THIS MEANS DOUBLE-CARE, as we look forward to retirement, caring for AGING PARENTS AND AGING CHILDREN. What a price to pay, for a little convenience!

C4ST Response to Health Canada's Safety Code 6 Myth Buster

Canadians for Safe Technology - "Health Canada's 'myth buster' vs the Truth

"On Feb 20th, 2014 Health Canada quietly released a document entitled "Busting Myths on Safety Code 6". This attempt to instill public confidence in safety exposure levels to wireless radiation is using false and unsubstantiated claims. This was again repeated on the newly released 60 day public consultation web page posted May 16th, 2014.

"Gone are the days where the public will accept you are safe just because Health Canada says you are....Canadians and scientists want and deserve proof with an open and transparent review inclusive of the current evidence showing biological harm from wireless radiation.

"C4ST and experts from around the world have come together to provide the real facts around the specific points Health Canada addresses in their Myth Buster document. Here it is . . .

Israel Wi-Fi Breakthroughs: TV Documentary, School Ban

O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

"Wi-Fi health advocates were exultant today at news that an Israeli TV documentary titled "How We are Killing Ourselves--Wireless Radiation" won a high rating and Haifi ordered Wi-Fi removed from all schools.

"The 30-minute documentary about the "epidemic of Electro-Sensitivity" (ES) aired at 9 p.m. April 12 and "received the highest rating of the day," according to Dafna Tachover, an attorney with offices in Israel and New York.

"She provided a link to the show to Wi-Fi health advocates in other countries noting that while the video is in Hebrew there are some interviews in English. [7'42" and 11'20"].

"Tachover said the director planned to do 10 minutes on ES as part of a film about the diseases of the 21st century but after working with health advocates "understood the extent of the problem and the lie and how important it is to give an uncompromising warning to the public." It was then decided to do 30 minutes mainly on ES and Wi-Fi in schools. . . .

"Said Tachover: "Electro-Sensitivity is an epidemic and not three percent of the population. We are now in the double digits in terms of ES. The public must be told. Wi-Fi in schools is a disaster and as a person who spends two to four hours every day on the phone with people and children who got sick, with many contemplate committing suicide, I urge you all to be uncompromising. The truth, and all of it must be told. Continued good luck to us all and thanks to anyone out there who stands up to evil and stupidity."

The mayor of Haifa (in Israel) ordered to disconnect Wi-Fi in schools and kindergartens - until examining the safety of Wi-Fi thoroughly

The third largest city in Israel has ordered immediate disconnect of WiFi in Kindergartens and Schools

" . . . This week, in coordination with the head of the city's education system, Ilana Truck, Yahav ordered to disconnect immediately the Wi-Fi in kindergartens and schools in Haifa until a thorough examination of the subject is done. These days the education system is preparing to gradually install wired system as an alternative in all education system in the city. These will be installed in the first stage in classrooms where pupils learn for the final exams that force use of computers, so they won't be harmed from the disconnect. The teachers in elementary schools in the city took on themselves to load every evening the studies material from the internet, so that pupils are not exposed and their studies won't be harmed. . . .
