BREAKING: Massive government study concludes cell phone radiation causes brain cancer by Mike Adams – Natural News – May 27, 2016:
http://www.naturalnews.com/054165_cell_phone_radiation_brain_tumors_government_study.html
(After decades of denials and attacks by the media which called people concerned about cell phone radiation “tin foil hat-wearing conspiracy theorists,” a massive, multi-year study funded by the federal government now concludes that yes, cell phone radiation causes brain cancer.
The study is published here and it’s entitled, “Report of Partial Findings from the National Toxicology Program Carcinogenesis Studies of Cell Phone Radiofrequency Radiation in Hsd: Sprague Dawley SD rats (Whole Body Exposures).”…
Another government cover-up shattered
In other words, the cell phone industry can no longer claim it’s “bad science.” This is rigorous science, and it shows a clear, dose-related causative link between exposure to cell phone radiation and the development of brain and heart tumors….)

Major Cell Phone Radiation Study Reignites Cancer Questions – Exposure to radio-frequency radiation linked to tumor formation in rats by Dina Fine Maron- Scientific American – May 27, 2016:
http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/major-cell-phone-radiation-study-reignites-cancer-questions/
(…This animal study was designed primarily to answer questions about cancer risks humans might experience when they use phones themselves, as opposed to smaller levels of exposure from wireless devices in the workplace or from living or working near cell phone towers. But it may have implications for those smaller levels as well, Portier says.
The findings shocked some scientists who had been closely tracking the study….
The fact that scientists were able to expose animals to nonionizing radiation (like that emitted by cell phones) and those animals went on to develop tumors but that exposure did not significantly raise the animals’ body temperatures was “important” to release, Bucher says….)

(….”We are releasing these findings at this time because we believe they may contribute to the discussion” about cellphones and safety, Bucher said in the briefing. “We felt it was important to get that word out.”…
In a statement to the Associated Press, the Federal Communications Commission, which regulates cellphones, said it was monitoring the research.
“Scientific evidence always informs FCC rules on this matter,” the statement said. “We will continue to follow all recommendations from federal health and safety experts.”)

Cellphone Radiation Causes Cancer in Rats–$25M U.S. Study by Jack O’Dwyer – O’Dwyer’s – May 26, 2016:
– http://www.odwyerpr.com/story/public/6977/2016-05-26/cellphone-radiation-causes-cancer-rats-25m-us-study.html
(….The study was proposed by the NTP in 2001. Moskowitz said it is the only research on cellphone radiation health effects that the federal government has conducted since the 1990’s and should be released soon.
Rats and mice were exposed to two second generation (2G) cell phone technologies which are still used for voice transmission. Both 2G technologies caused tumors in rats, but not in mice.
Moskowitz said 2G technologies will soon be obsolete because cellphone companies in the U.S. are planning to use 4G for voice transmission. However, recent research on 3G and 4G suggests these technologies, in spite of their lower power densities, may be more risky than 2G, he said….)

[Cell Phones – Health]

Subject: Industry Owned Media Suppresses True Results of US Government Cell Phone Study

Personally I tell people the only safe way to use a cell phone is to have someone 10 km away carry and use it for you.

As most are not ready for that safe cell phone use practice. Don’t carry it on you body  -especially not pants pocket or under a bra strap nor in you left front shirt pocket.  When using it always on speaker mode and held at arms length away from you.  If one feels the need to use ear plugs (even when listening to their music) use air buds to disconnect the phone from the ears with a “tube of air” The usual location of the ear phone jack is immediately next to the antenna and in practice the wire in the antenna becomes an extension of the antenna.

Telling people the risks softly does little good  I have found the “shock” approach connects better.  One technique I use is an rf meter next to my lap top and I frequently show people the difference  when the wifi is off and the reading usually is around 50 mvilivolts/m (in the near field only measure the electric field and if ones meter measures the magnetic field separately  (most don’t) measure both independently) – the power density reading is an assumed value based on if you were in the far field) turn the wifi on (my laptop has a physical switch in addition to the other ways to switch the wifi mode) and the reading jumps to 1200 + millivolts/meter. I then tell them the laptop is radiating on 2 frequencies and the meter only picks up one of them  I also tell them that there would also be a similar spike coming from a wifi router if one was nearby.  Most people’s eyes almost pop out of their heads when they see the numbers (numbers connect better than flickering lights). A similar demonstration can be done with a cell phone – usually helps to get them to make a call or send a text  to trigger the transmission mode – same effect but the laptop seems to be more dramatic for people.

When I also remind them to look at the left side of my face, they go away with a powerful image of the harm EMR can cause.
