Cell Phone Radiation Leads to Cancer,
Says U.S. NTP in Final Report
Rats Developed Rare Heart Tumor
Cancer Link Was Once Thought Impossible
November 1, 2018
“We believe that the link between radiofrequency (RF) radiation and tumors in male rats is real,” says John Bucher, the former associate director of the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP).
The announcement accompanies this morning’s release of the NTP final reports of studies on cancer in rats and mice exposed to cell phone radiation. Bucher’s project, the largest in NTP history, cost $30 million and took more than ten years to complete.
The meaning of this is that the probability of a person getting cancer increases with the total lifetime exposure to RFRadiation. Exposure is a function of the intensity of the RFR and the duration. So, 10 years of heavy cellphone usage (phone against the head) will dramatically increase the chances of brain cancer. A user may be lucky or may not be lucky in this gamble.
And Health Canada and the FCC maintain that RFR has no adverse health effects, especially cancer. Does this mean that these organizations are derelict in their duties to protect public heath or does it mean that they have been influenced or taken over by industry or military agencies?
“Save the Olympic Peninsula” is asking for comments to be sent regarding use of the beaches and areas by the US Navy. I hope you will consider lending support to this effort to preserve the environment by writing to Naval Facilities Engineering Command Northwest.
Your comments (due by March 23, 2018), including a demand for a comprehensive environmental impact statement, should be sent to:
“We urgently need your help. The Navy is proposing special operations warfare training along 265 miles of Washington state shorelines and 65 state parks at launching sites, marinas, and within cities and towns.
Although the Navy has conducted SEAL training in the Northwest for the past 30 years, it intends to significantly expand operations well beyond what has been conducted in the past without providing a comprehensive environmental impact statement.
According to the Navy’s Draft Environmental Assessment, “The Proposed Action supports small-unit, intermediate and advanced cold-water maritime and land-based training activities for naval special operations personnel on selected nearshore lands and in the inland waters of Puget Sound, including Hood Canal, as well as the southwestern Washington coast. Training would start in 2018 and occur into the foreseeable future.”
The specific, long-term environmental consequences of innumerable military assault exercises to each of the public and private shoreline areas is not addressed in the Navy’s assessment.”
