Cell Phones & Cordless Phones
CELL PHONE DANGERS ARE REAL
Cell Phone Research
Many people are aware of the controversy regarding the safety of cell phone radiation. The center of the controversy initially was Dr. George Carlo, who was hired by the large USA cell phone companies to study the possible hazards of cell phone use. When his studies proved alarming, the cell companies cut off his funding and refused to allow him to publish his results. See his book Cell Phones: Invisible Hazards in the Wireless Age for his easy to read and engrossing story and summaries of his results.
Millions of people use cell phones daily, unaware of the danger these phones pose to their health. This is due to the fact that most of the information given to the mainstream public is coming from reports written by scientists hired by the telecom industry on the dangers of cell phones. Not surprisingly, these scientists, paid by cell phone companies, report to us that there are no proven dangers.
Fortunately, there is also research that has been done by industry-independent scientists, and they tell a whole different story. A study by the International Agency for Research on Cancer recently reported:
...in 2008, after a decade of cell phone use, the chance of getting a brain tumor -- specifically on the side of the head where you use the phone -- goes up as much as 40 percent. An independent study in Sweden last year concluded that people who started using a cell phone before the age of 20 were five times as likely to develop a brain tumor.
Professor Leif Salford, who headed the research at Sweden's prestigious Lund University, says "the voluntary exposure of the brain to microwaves from hand-held mobile phones" is "the largest human biological experiment ever". Professor Salford and his team have spent 15 years investigating microwave radiation. Their studies proved radiation could open the blood-brain barrier, allowing a protein called albumin to pass into the brain. Their latest work shows the process is linked to serious brain damage. Professor Salford said neurons that would normally not become "senile" until people reached their 60s may now do so when they were in their 30s. In addition, research indicates that exposure to cell phones’ radiation causes red blood cells to leak hemoglobin. Leif G. Salford et al., “Nerve Cell Damage in Mammalian Brain After Exposure to Microwaves from GSM Mobile Phones,” Environmental Health Perspectives 111, no. 7 (2003): 881–883.
According to the Bioinitiative Report of 2007, diseases due to the extensive use of cell phones are now manifesting very quickly. Brain tumors, ADHD, Alzheimer's and other brain-related illnesses are developing within years, rather than over decades.
Exposure to cell phone radiation is the largest human health experiment ever undertaken, without informed consent, and has some 4 billion participants involved. Science has shown increased risk of brain tumors from use of cell phones, as well as increased risk of eye cancer, salivary gland tumors, testicular cancer, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and leukemia. The public must be informed.” Sources: Business Wire August 25, 2009 RadiationResearch.org August 25, 2009 [Free Full-Text Report]
A recent study that was conducted by 12 research groups in seven European countries found that in laboratory conditions radio waves from mobile phones harm body cells and damage DNA. The research project, called Reflex study, which took four years and which was coordinated by the German research group Verum, studied the effect of radiation on human and animal cells in a laboratory.
After being exposed to electromagnetic fields that are typical for mobile phones, the cells showed a significant increase in single and double-strand DNA breaks, with damage not always being repaired by the cell. Mutated cells are seen as a possible cause of cancer. DNA carries the genetic material of an organism and its different cells. "There was remaining damage for future generation of cells", said project leader Franz Adlkofer. Link for Reflex Study Final Report: REFLEX_Final Report
In addition, the Swedish Institute of Environmental Medicine found that ten or more years of mobile phone use almost doubles the risk of acoustic neuroma, or benign tumors on the auditory nerve. "When the side of the head on which the phone was usually held was taken into consideration, we found that the risk of acoustic neuroma was almost four times higher on the same side as the phone was held, and virtually normal on the other side," the institute added. While non-cancerous, acoustic neuroma tumors that are not removed can grow to sizes where they put pressure on the brain and become life threatening.
Research from Sweden suggests that cordless phones may even be more dangerous than cell phones.
“Having a cordless phone in your house can be 100 times more of a health risk than using a mobile. The popular phones constantly blast out high levels of radiation - even when they are not in use. Landlines are widely thought a safer option than mobiles. But researchers in Sweden now warn, “ Cordless phones are more likely to cause brain tumors than today’s mobiles”.

Both cell and cordless phones are dangerous because they upload or transmit information
to a base station, creating very intense EMFs right next to your brain.
Children are Especially at Risk
To following shows just how much higher the electromagnetic radiation absorption rates are in a 5- and 10-year old’s brain versus that of an adult.
Autonomic nervous system expert Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt has noted this radiation can easily flip certain genes in the mitochondria. If this gene sequence is altered in a pregnant woman, she can pass her damaged mitochondria on to the child. The child can then develop a mitochondrial disorder, which can include muscular atrophy and severe developmental problems.
According to Dr. Mercola, cell phone usage may be one of the primary causes of the autism epidemic.
