Exclamation Brain Cancer from Cell Phones?

Well, Finally some public confirmation about Cell Phones & Cancer!!!!!!!!
I worry most about my grandchildren.......even if not totally conclusive, it should be enough to consider the consequences.
I had a neighbor/friend years ago who died of brain cancer....Martha was only in her mid 4o's....
way too young & a very painful death. Yes, way before cell phones but it messed up her 3 daughters
lives, possibly forever. Husband remarried a much younger woman who drove the girls to make
very poor decisions about their own futures. It was heart breaking.
I hope people will pay attention to this info.

I totally cut down on my cell phone usage some 5 years ago. I hope to God it has not done any long lasting damage to me. We used to have this free calls all the time to anyone plan a few years ago that I used to abuse. Normally I'll just sms now.

About time! How many years have we been warned about this?
The forces of ignorance and obscurifation and corporate greed are fierce,
as well as intimadation and name calling upon those who try to blow whistles

Honestly, I don't know what to believe. Study after study is inconclusive.
I saw this study of 20 years of over 420,000 people and the study showed no increase in the risk of cancer
https://jnci.oxfordjournals.org/conte.../1707.abstract

I wish this was just one study, but study after study shows no link, then for every 10 studies that says there's no link, I'll end up reading some study that suggests there's a link.

You've got to go to this site. I went to a presentation a year ago and he said the evidence is clear and there's no controversy about it. One study began 10 years ago on teenage boys and by the time they were 26 many of them had brain cancer. I hope he references that in his website. I got rid of my phone a couple months later but I still use my husbands a little. I need to get a wire that has air in it as the air helps break up the EMF frequency. Hopefully he has info. on that in his site too. He said that every time you get on the phone you need to say to yourself, "that is how many cigarettes I smoked today." The cell phone health hazards he likened to the smoking industry that took 20 years to finally come public on the health hazards even though the evidence was there 20 years ago. Imagine if the cell phone industry came out and made public that it's causing brain cancer? Not going to happen. They'll do whatever it takes to make sure.

The first cell phone came out in the 1970's, but it wasn't until the 1980's that it was commercially available and by the 1990's a lot of people had cell phones. So there's been 20 years of usage, but I guess not at this large scale that I don't know many people without a cell phone. The only people I know without a cell phone are normally over 50 years old.

I remember years ago reading about how microwaving food will lead to cancer and how microwaves are really dangerous if you are within 5 feet of the microwave when using it or by eating any foods from microwaves. When I was taking my master degree engineering course in EMFs, I still remember these conversations I had with my father who worked in the EMF field for a living and that most concerns were drastically over done. Of course, I have to agree that it's probably not the smartest thing to keep your head next to a cell tower, but I honestly think cell phone concerns are probably over exaggerated. Maybe a person who can't get a phone off their head "may" increase their risk.

I went to that link from Oram Miller who is a building biologist in Minneapolis and did see some of the links there, but didn't see any links to any of the studies.

I just found wikipedia has an entire page dedicated to the issue, which has really a lot of information and a lot of studies with links.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_...ion_and_health

I guess some people are convinced it's extremely harmful and others are convinced its harmless. Personally I'm not completely convinced one way or another, but the majority of the studies are coming to no conclusion about an increase risk to cancer.

hmmm.....for me I've got a new level of caution because I've got a little girl who is 4 years old. Her life/health is affected by the choices I make now especially as she's so little and her body is in the growth stage. I didn't have time to research or question things in our environment when I worked full-time. Now I'm a full-time stay at home mom. My mom died of cancer at 46. It was awful. I am choosing to avoid things that are controversially possible cancer causers. For me it's better safe than sorry. It boils down to believing what we believe. One specialist will say one thing another specialist will say another. So we seek information, trust our instincts and then choose what we believe. It's a process and journey.

And regardless of what studies say microwaves destroy phytonutrients... the components of food that are essential to health... as much or more so than vitamins.

I will not have on in my house. They are not permitted for sale in Russia due to the studies they did on them long ago now.

No microwave for me either. I never even think about using it or needing it anymore but it was a shocker to discover it was destroying nutrients in foods as well as leaking out radiation on me. Habits can be broken though.

I use a microwave, but not for cooking food or anything and not on a daily bases. For warming up water quickly or reheating food that's been cooked already. I think if your using a microwave for frozen foods, then that's a completely different issue on health alone. If you eat out many meals start out in the microwave....

Arrowwind09 where did you read that russian banned microwaves? I've never been to Russia, but a coworker of mine grew up in Russia, so I asked him and he said it was untrue and that he had a microwave when he was in college. He said that microwaves and dishwashers are uncommon in most houses, but he said they aren't illegal and major retailers sale them.

I tried to search for a little bit and only found hoax links of a ban in 1976 in russia. The Hoax was a little silly, something about microwaved water is harmful to plants. Who would microwave water first before giving it to plants in the first place and this was the reason Russia decided to ban microwaves in 1976

I'm so happy they came out with this new study. There were so many studies done that claim there is no link but then there are some that says there is. So many cases such as Johnny Cochran that died from brain cancer in the form of a bluetooth. I text more than anything but regardless if you text, or watch TV, use computers, etc you are still being exposed to electromagnetic frequencies. I have a cell phone patch on my cell phone, patches on all my TVs at home, computers and microwave. Also I wear a bracelet that protects from the frequencies. I have increased energy and strength from using these products and I dont suffer from allergies anymore. I'm not trying to wait until the last minute before another study is put out that here is another link. It makes you wonder why so many people have Alheimers, autism, parkinsons, etc.

Not only do cell phones cause brain cancers, but also jaw and ear tumors as well. The next 5 years will tell the real story, and it won't be pretty since alot of these cancers will affect children.

As for the microwave, scrap it and buy a nice toaster oven instead.

It won't kill your food.

Exclamation

I haven't used a microwave oven for years....better safe than sorry is my motto! I know when at
a restaurant & your food has been served not as hot as you'd like, it's reheated in a microwave.
Years ago I used it to cook baked potatoes & corn on the cob. Now I use it for storage.

OMG! Have I really got to get rid of my microwave and cell phone?? And what about my lap-top and desk-top? Have I got to de-evolve and go back to cave-dwelling? Lol!
