It is interesting that we have seen a good deal about the challenges of Cell Phones in the media lately. I’ve noted articles in the USA Today, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Reuters, and on TV on CNN, CNBC, and MSNBC. What concerns me is that there were studies in Switzerland in 1996, 1997, 1998, and 1999 and yet it was as if there was a media blackout here in the US. And realize this was back when cell phones were switching over from the 3 Watt phones which is a lot more power and thus, more micro-wave intensity.
That is to say, they were much worse back then for the human bio system, and the antennas were more robust as well, and the cell towers were further apart averaging 7-miles or more, today more like 3-miles. This higher power setting and bigger antennas means more brain cookage! Back then we were told there was nothing to worry about; perfectly harmless, now we find out, well, actually they weren’t.
There was an interesting book review article on Kurzweil’s Accelerating Intelligence online recently on May 24, 2011 titled “Disconnect: The Truth About Cell Phone Radiation, What the Industry Has Done to Hide It, and How to Protect Your Family” – Devra Davis, published by Dutton Adult, 2010. The book review states;
“Much-anticipated, explosive expose of how cell phone use damages brain cells, especially in children, by one of the world’s foremost scientific experts in the field – an array of recent and long suppressed research in this timely bombshell. Cell phone radiation is a national emergency. Stunningly, the most popular gadget of our age has now been shown to damage DNA, break down the brain’s defenses, and reduce sperm count while increasing memory loss, the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, and even cancer.”
You see, here is a gentleman who wrote a whole book on the topic, not just a cutesy article for mainstream media. It’s got all the studies, research, including these latest studies everyone is reading about showing how the cell phone radiation is causing DNA to breakdown, and that the cell phones are carcinogenic.
That’s just scary stuff, and what about pregnant mothers with their cell phones strapped to their hips using the blue-tooth on their ear. Their brains are safe in that case, but how is their unborn baby doing there, I ask? Still more questions, but if you want some real answers, I guess I’d recommend this book to you too. Please consider all this.
