An estimated 1 in 2 people are going to develop cancer at some point in their lives according to researchers. And while a lot of this can be attributed to unhealthy life style habits, such as horrible diet and stressful environment, how many people are questioning the large doses of radiation we are all bathing in on a daily basis? Most of which is certainly coming from our "smart" phones.
The highly respected and reputable Dr. Devra Davis has been sounding the alarm for the past several years already regarding the dangers and cancer risk involved with cell phone usage. She is the author of “Disconnect–The Truth About Cellphone Radiation,” and authored a large number of publications explaining this very serious threat and rising epidemic we are faced with.
Dr. Davis states that the biological harmful effect of a cell phone is not about its power, its about the high frequency radio signal, which has the ability to disrupt the body’s natural resonance and actually interfere with the DNA’s ability to repair itself. Below you can watch a brilliant must see talk from Dr. Davis that goes into much more detail about the research and facts that are not being reported;
Similarly, Dr. Martin Blank, has also gone on record about the cancer risk associated with mobile technology on a number of occassions. Another professor is Dr. Ronald B. Herberman director of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute. He is especially concerned about children. In fact, according to Professor Lennart Hardell of Sweden, those who begin using cell phones heavily as teenagers have 4 to 5 times more brain cancer as young adults! Still don't think the threat is real? The Israeli government recently even passed a law requiring cell phones be labeled as potentially increasing ones risk of developing cancer.
So why is no one talking about this?
Well as always, a tiny minority as mentioned above, actually are. They just aren't getting any airplay from the media. Unfortunately in the scientific community often times they drag their feet in regards to developing a collective consensus. This was actually the case with cigarettes in the past, in which it was claimed there was no link to cancer. This is for a number of reasons, one of which is money. Obviously cell phone usage is tied to a multi billion dollar industry. It may even be a trillion dollar industry when you consider that huge companies like Google and Facebook would also be impacted, or even big pharma's potential future cancer patients, not just Microsoft or Apple. Naturally, no one wants to disturb such a massive cash flow.
Back in 1993 David Reynard, of Madeira Beach, filed a major lawsuit against cell phone manufacturer NEC when be brought fourth convincing evidence that Susan Reynard died of a malignant tumor that was the result of her cell phone use. This was widely publicized and to appease the fears of the masses the government claimed studies would be conducted to ensure their safety. Unfortunately no convincing evidence was ever given to corroborate their claims. Dr. George Carlo, an epidemiologist and medical scientist puts this issue into perspective very well;
“Industry-funded studies in many cases now produce industry-desired outcomes. By tampering with the integrity of scientists, scientific systems and public information steps over the lines of propriety that are appropriate for protecting business interests—especially when the casualty of the interference is public health and safety.”
So what can I do to protect myself?
First thing is to stop using your cell phone so often and other wireless devices, such as tablets or iPads. Don't hold it against your body and rather use headsets or ear phones when making conversation. You can also try protective casings which are said to be able to block the radiation, some of which are backed by certain studies. How effective they are I personally do not know.
Never ever give cell phones to children. They are particularly susceptible to the dangers and have a far greater risk of developing cancer if exposed at a young age. Furthermore, do not place phones near babies. It is extremely dangerous to them.
You can also consume foods that help to cleanse the body of radiation such as spirulina, kale, garlic, wheat grass, and ginger, among others
