“…the primary hazard of cellphone radiation is not brain cancer but, rather, systemic cellular and mitochondrial damage, which threatens health in general and can contribute to any number of health problems and chronic diseases“– Paul Ebeling
- In Y 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the cancer research arm of the World Health Organization, declared cellphones a Group 2B “possible carcinogen”
- Two government-funded studies brought renewed attention to this link in Y 2016. The studies, in which 3,000 animals were exposed to the type of radiation emitted by 2G and 3G cellphones, were said to be the most extensive to date
- Male rats were more likely to develop heart tumors, while female rats and newborns exposed to high levels of radiation during pregnancy and lactation were more likely to have low body weight
- DNA damage and damage to heart tissue was also observed in both male and female rats but not mice. Other types of tumors occurred in both types of animals, including brain, prostate, liver and pancreatic tumors
In November 2016, David McCormick, PhD., director of the Illinois Institute of Technology Research Institute where the study was conducted, was very clear, telling reporters, “What we are saying here is that based on the animal studies, there is a possible risk cellphone RF [radio frequency] is potentially carcinogenic in humans. These are uncommon lesions in rodents, so it is our conclusion that they are exposure related.”
As noted by Microwave News, while some of the pathology data was updated after the initial release in Y 2016, the changes were minor. The interpretation has changed dramatically. But, even though the findings did not changed, the NTP insisted it was not “not a high-risk situation” and that the risk to human health is negligible.
Microwave News listed a number of possible political reasons for the sudden turnaround, including different NTP leadership, the current White House administration’s disdain for science that threatens big business, and the fact that the major telecommunications players today are Apple, Google and Microsoft all Wall Street darlings.
Whatever the reason, with 5G rolled out in Ys 2021 and 2022, it is clear the NTP is downplaying findings that only a fed yrs ago, were considered of significant importance for public health. Not only that, but 5G supporters in Y 2022 are now being boosted by mainstream media, which debunks claims that 5G may be harmful.
Nevertheless, protect yourself: When using your cellphone, use the speaker phone and hold the phone at least 3 ft away from you. Seek to radically decrease your time on the cellphone. I checked my cellphone usage today and I used it less than 30 mins last month. So, instead, use VoIP software phones that you can use while connected to the internet via a wired connection.
And, avoid carrying your cellphone on your body unless in airplane mode and never sleep with it on in your bedroom!
Have a healthy, prosperous week, Keep the Faith!
