Cancer and mobile phones – Inconvenient Truth

Most of us do not accept that cancer and mobile phones usage is bad for health – but is that because studies showing a link to cancer have been cast into doubt by the industry.

1Scientific Peer Review

This year a landmark United States government study concluded (scientific peer review) of  that there is “clear evidence” that radiation from mobile phones causes cancer, they claimed more specifically that a heart tissue cancer (Cancer and mobile phones) in rats that is too rare to be explained as random occurrence.

3 days at Research Triangle Park, North Carolina spent by eleven volunteer scientists, discussing the study (Cancer and mobile phones), which was done by the National Toxicology Program of the US Department of Health and Human Services and ranks among the largest conducted of the health effects of mobile phone radiation. Those scientists showed that thousands of rats and mice having biological similarities to humans make them useful indicators of human health risks) to doses of radiation equivalent to an average mobile user’s lifetime exposure.

Peer review scientists repeatedly upgraded the confidence levels of the NTP’s scientists and staff had attached to the study (Cancer and mobile phones), fueling critics’ suspicions that the NTP’s leadership had tried to downplay the findings. Thus the peer review also found “some evidence” – one step below “clear evidence” – of cancer in the brain and adrenal glands.

This news was not only reported by one major news organisation in the US or Europe also news coverage of mobile phone safety has long reflected the outlook of the wireless industry. Now, the industry has been orchestrating a global PR campaign aimed at misleading not only journalists, but also consumers/customers and policymakers about the actual science concerning mobile phone radiation. Indeed, big wireless has borrowed the very same strategy and tactics big tobacco and big oil pioneered to deceive the public about the risks of smoking and climate change, respectively. And like their tobacco and oil counterparts, wireless industry CEOs lied to the public even after their own scientists privately warned that their products could be dangerous, especially to children.
