Brain Cancer Cell Phones Don't Believe Media Spin

Danger of Believing Media Spin on Chance of Brain Cancer from Cell Phones: European Leaders Call for Ban of Cell Phones and WiFi in Schools

I grew up at the time when there was much concern of leaking microwave ovens causing cancer. Many of you are too young to remember that the Soviet Union used microwaves pointed at the USA embassy in Moscow. The people in the embassy went crazy as Americans now seem to be more crazy to a larger extent than in the past which has been largely attributed accurately to our Republican America. Our society has been changed drastically since Reagan and Bushes and largely Republican control of the Senate and/or House and conservative Democrats who are called moderate by the Media. Senator Nelson (D-Nebraska) allowed Bush to pass his two tax cuts for the rich.

Remember that these tax cuts account for essentially all our future deficits if left in place. Want a Great Depression? Cut help for the middleclass jobs and don't tax the rich.

Media lies. About 50 percent pays no taxes at all with incomes below $50,000/year. They don't pay Federal taxes because they are too poor! But the statement they pay no taxes is not true! The Bush tax cuts took money away from the states and cities so property taxes, city taxes, and state taxes went up sharply without paying for Bush's tax cuts, started Medicare Part D without paying for it and a big bonus for Big Pharma, and tried to destroy Medicaid and now trying to do that with Medicare. Are Americans going to be distracted by the lies in the 2012 campaign?

Two-thirds of Medicaid expenses are care centers for seniors. Some foreigners have gamed the system by transferring all their assets to their children five years before they need constant care.

A Chinese friend told me that the Chinese who emigrate from Taiwan and China do this a lot in California. I believe we should stop this fraud which will save enormous amount of money for medicaid. American citizens also use this ploy too because it is very expensive with the average cost about $6,000 per month! Because of this cost, I think Obama drastically reduced his plan, but I have not heard much about it. The most expensive item in most state budgets is for Medicaid. Why have we not heard much from the corporate press/media?

The Middleclass has to pay the 7 percent tax for Social Security and some more for Medicare so many Americans paid into it already and the Republicans want to cheat us by cutting the money provided for healthcare in half! $6,000 per family is not enough! Social Security now has 3 Trillion dollars in Treasury Bonds which will increase due to contributions in the next few years.

Understanding what the facts are is important for your life and the life of your loved ones. Yes, politics is something all of us need to know what the real facts are. The media does not help. It will take your own effort.

Of course we are increasingly being told by their former employer that healthcare is welfare and it can be removed at any time they want to remove it. I think many companies will stop providing it in 2014 for many employees and retirees when the full healthcare provisions will activate.

When I cook or warm up foods in the microwave oven, I usually add a fair amount of water based liquids such as broth so that the food won't be damaged as much. The microwave causes the water to vibrate very rapidly which leads to the warming of the water and food. This is not the case when we heat up microwave heated foods because it takes too long to warm up in water on the stove.

Our cells and brain cells contain water which is heated up on exposure to microwaves. The extent this happens depends on the thickness and density of our skull. The skulls of children are both thin and soft compared to adults.

Some research has indicated that cell phone type microwaves can split DNA in the brain, but we do not know to what extent this happens in humans because this was done on mice. I suspect it is most likely the process of cancer formation is not easy in the brain. Perhaps sustained long term sessions on a cell phone may be more damaging than intermittent use.

The most recent research on how cancer is initiated seems to be related to cells not sticking to each other. Once in isolation, the cells seem to mutate more easily. Perhaps the heating of the brain cells causes they to separate. I am skeptical that it necessarily takes a long time for this to happen and even when it does, our brain may be able to fix itself as often happens after serious brain injuries.

As we age, our ability to fight cancer diminishes greatly. Some studies indicate 90 percent of seniors are deficient in vitamin D3 and its metabolite 25-hydroxy-vitamin D which is needed by all our cells to keep us healthy. It helps prevent infections because this metabolite when activated when it attaches to our cells is able to fight cancers, especially if we get enough and the cancer is not too far advanced. It develops chemicals to block vitamin D metabolite from attaching to cells.

So getting about 5,000 IU daily either with sunscreen free skin for 20 minutes to 2 hours depending on our skin color or with supplements of vitamin D3 will reduce cancer in half according to a study of 2,000 seniors in sunny Texas.

Seniors have more difficulty of making vitamin D3 with sun exposure, possible because they are taking so much medications such as Statins in high doses so it blocks vitamin D3 formation. Cholesterol products are needed to make Testosterone, vitamin D3, and other vital hormones. Statins can also block the formation of Co-enzyme Q-10 which is needed by our mitochondria or energy producing factory as an antioxidant.

The mitochondria cannot repair mistakes in DNA formation and effect of oxidation processes involved in making energy. Co-enzyme Q-10 is one of the few antioxidants that can penetrate the double-walled mitochondria. When we die, about half of our mitochondria DNA were found to have mutated. Statins stop the cholesterol formation process at an early stage so use diet to keep your cholesterol down as much as possible.

The media picks a professor who advises Cell Phone company to comment on the study. He said I will not stop my current method of using a cell phone. The journalists should have asked him what method does he now use?

European Leaders Call for Ban of Cell Phones and Wi Fi in Schools, Dr. Mercola,June 02, 2011, 14,750 views:

The powerful Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly has echoed the warning I have been making for years now, that children should be protected from cell phones and "one must respect the precautionary principle" in regard to cell phones and other wireless technologies.

In a new report, they conclude that evidence is strong enough to warrant immediate action to protect children and others from the potentially harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation emitted by wireless devices:

"… non-ionizing frequencies, be they sourced from extremely low frequencies, power lines or certain high frequency waves used in the fields of radar, telecommunications and mobile telephony, appear to have more or less potentially harmful, non-thermal, biological effects on plants, insects and animals, as well as the human body when exposed to levels that are below the official threshold values.

One must respect the precautionary principle and revise the current threshold values; waiting for high levels of scientific and clinical proof can lead to very high health and economic costs, as was the case in the past with asbestos, leaded petrol and tobacco."

Experts Advise a Cell Phone Ban in Schools

The European Council has taken the exemplary step of recommending that mobile phones and wireless networks be banned in classrooms and schools. They note, correctly, that young people and children are most vulnerable to emissions of electromagnetic fields and suggest the following:

  • " … develop within different ministries (education, environment and health) targeted information campaigns aimed at teachers, parents and children to alert them to the specific risks of early, ill-considered and prolonged use of mobiles and other devices emitting microwaves;
  • " …ban all mobile phones, DECT phones or WiFi or WLAN systems from classrooms and schools, as advocated by some regional authorities, medical associations and civil society organizations"

If you are not yet aware of the increased risks to children from cell phones, I suggest viewing this graphic from the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, which is based on research by Oh Ghandi, PhD at the University of Utah. It shows quite clearly that electromagnetic fields are likely to penetrate the brain far more deeply for children than adults. In fact, due to their thinner skulls, smaller brains and softer brain tissue, children are FAR more susceptible to damagefrom cell phone use than adults.

Despite this, some schools in the United States have even allowed the installation of cell phone towers directly on school grounds! They are accepting large amounts of money from cell phone companies to do this, helping their budgets, but unfortunately locking them into long-term contracts they will not be able to break once they realize there are serious health hazards.

Cell phones have been widely used for only about a decade, so we haven't even hit the tip of the iceberg in terms of the REAL effects of this radiation exposure. If cell phone popularity continues at its current rate—or increases, which is likely—we could be headed for a brain cancer epidemic the likes of which the world has never seen.

Of course, not everyone who smokes gets lung cancer, and not every cell phone user will develop brain cancer or suffer neurological damage. There are many variables that contribute to your susceptibility.

But why risk it?

Why gamble with your life or the life of your child? ...
