Canadian Report on Children Using Cell Phones and the Link to Brain Cancer.

This report comes from a Canadian news article about cell phones and the risks of brain cancer to children.

After watching any of these videos on this site please remember our Feb. 27, 2009 post with the video from Chris Zambounis of EMC Technologies. This post shows you how using a hands free (Bluetooth or wired head set) can be worse than putting the phone to your head.

I thought this report was well done. It shows how countries around the world look to protect and inform the public about the risks and hazards of radiation poisoning from cell phone usage.

Fertility, Children, and Cell Phone Use

A lot of people trying to have children and wanting to know why things aren't going the way they want may want to watch these videos.

Video one is on male fertility and how cell phones can impact the production of sperm.

Video two has information about how cell phones could be linked to behavioral problems in children.

Dr Natan Bar-Chama - Director of Male Reproductive Medicine and Surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center

Cell Phones and Infertility in Men

He says," The electromagnetic waves... those are the waves that are transmitted from these.. cell phones that are currently much more powerful than we had in the past."

"If you look at the phones that you carry now that are capable of doing Internet browsing... and high end Internet activities.... that comes at a price. And that is an increase in frequency, also an increase in electromagnetic waves, which we know in animal models can cause damage to the brain."

The reporter asks, "It said in the report that it depends on where you carry it also, what does that mean?"

Dr. Natan, " That most people carry their cell phones in their pocket, and for men, that is quite close to where sperm is being produced."

"The electromagnetic wave injury can come from the direct damage to the DNA from these waves. Or...by a thermal effect."

The reporter asked, "How long do you have to be carrying a phone.... or how many hours a day for it to impact a man's sperm count?"

Dr. Natan, " We don't know....this is really the first study to show that prolonged usage, as they defined is greater than four hours per day could have an effect on concentration..... "

Reporter asked, " Does this mean being on the phone, or just having it on?"

Dr. Natan, " That is a good question.... We don't know...The data questioned these individuals, and they reported using the phone for that period of time.

Now that didn't take into account where the phone was located or what type of phone they were using."

Researchers find Pregnant Women who use cell phones are 54% chance of having children with behavioral problems. Radiation may not be the cause.

Doctor Jennifer Ashton OBGYN

video

A study of more than 13,000 pregnant women.

Dr Jennifer Ashton states, "this however is a reputable study in a solid journal with big numbers. They looked at 13,000 pregnant women and followed their children over a 7 to 10 year period.

And this came out of research done at UCLA and as well as in Denmark.

And what they found is this increase in the instance of behavioral problems to women who use their cell phones more than 2 to 3 times a day.

Now all of us know that's not really that much this day and age.

And the only thing this study did not show is mechanism by which that could have happened.

So right now it has to be interpreted with a little bit of caution. However if they are able to elucidate the mechanism by which this occurs this might be a very significant finding."

The Reporter asks, "What happens to the children?"

Dr. Ashton, "Well, they have difficulty with their conduct, with behavior, with some emotional problems. And the theory is that, even that it is low levels of what we call non-ionizing radiation that we get from our cell phone. That that may somehow, have an effect in the brain, that may not mannifest for a time down the road.

Now the only confusing thing here is that the key point with radiation exposure, even the low levels that come from a cell phone are that you need both intensity and frequency, and the site, or proximity of that exposure to the target is very important.

So obviousely if your holding a cell phone thats quite a distance from the pregnant uterus, but if your doing that 20, 30, 40 times a day, even thoe the levels might be low the effect might increase.

The reporter says, "Yes, and there are a lot of women who will hold the phone down, you know, lower and use an ear piece up here so the reciever could actually be by the baby.

But now they are not sure that it's radiation at all.

( they go on talking about could it be the mothers are just ignoring there children while on the phone).

At this time they are saying this might be equivallent to the potential harmful effects of tobacco and alcohol to a pregnant woman.

The reporter asks, "You're and OBGYN this is your area. Would you advise any newly pregnant woman that would come in to you and say What should I give up? Would you say watch the cell phone use.

Dr Ashton, "The take home point and it's so important that you ask that, is that we have to minimize the bad, or harmful exposure when we are carrying a fetus, and and try to maximize the good.

You can't walk around on egg shells and live your life in a plastic bubble. But as our technology evolves you might start seeing more of these effects.

So like we say in medicine "Things in moderation"

The reporter says, Moderation in this case may mean less that 2 to 3 times a day.

Dr Ashton says, That's right.

Orit and I have been studying the effects of cell phones, immunizations, and our food system and the relationship it has to autism, and children's disorders.

What we have found is, the relationship of cell phones to behavioral disorders seems to be connected to the heavy metals, and toxins used in immunizations. plus the conaminants in our food system.

The heavy metals get stored in the fat of the brain. The cell phones seem to radiate the heavy metals creating in simple turms, a short curcuiting effect. Therefore when children are in the presents of wifi, cell phones, or heavy electronics, like going to best buy or some place like that, the children go nuts.

We post these things for you to be aware. We are focused on Cell phones in this blog, so the immunizations and food products are something that we would address in one of our other websites or blogs.

Dr Ronald Herberman Cell Phone Radiation Warning



Dr. Ronald Herberman,Director of the University Of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute and the UPMC Cancer Centers

Issues a Warning to all his 3000 Faculty and Staff



video

"Recently I have become aware of the growing body of literature linking long-term cell phone use to possible adverse health effects including cancer. Although the evidence is still controversial, I am convinced that there are sufficient data to warrant issuing an advisory to share some precautionary advice on cell phone use.

An international expert panel of pathologists, oncologists and public health specialists, recently declared that electromagnetic fields emitted by cell phones should be considered a potential human health risk. To date, a number of countries including France, Germany and India have issued recommendations that exposure to electromagnetic fields should be limited. In addition, Toronto’s Department of Public Health is advising teenagers and young children to limit their use of cell phones, to avoid potential health risks."

Keith here, People constantly think there is no risk or casually give it some thought that brain cancer could come from their cell phone, however the surgeons who work with cancer on a daily basis are running scared.

Why?

Because they don't want to look like fools when the epidemic hits.

Dr Devra Davis



Dr Devra Davis PhD, MPHDirector, Center for Environmental Oncology at the University of Pittsburgh Institute


A reporter from Canada went to Washington to speak to Devra Davis, who studies the causes of cancer.

When asked by a Canadian Reporter who had handed her a cell phone designed for kids, the reporter asked "What do you think of that?"

"I think it's appalling, it's really appalling."

When asked "Why?"

Dr. Davis says, "Because I don't think it's a good idea to microwave your kids heads."

Reporter, "Even if you are not positive it will cause tumors?"

Dr Davis - "No...No... I just think there is enough going on.. you want children to develop without impacting their brains." "This is direct" (holding a cell phone to her head)...." there is nothing subtle about this, it's direct." Again holding the cell phone to her head.

The video below is Dr Davis on Larry King Live on CNN talking about the dangers of cell phones.

Cell Phones Compared to Cigarettes



Dr David Carpenter is the Director for the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University of Albany.





video


When asked by a reporter why he is concerned about cell phone usage, he states:

" There has been a fair amount of research on this subject that has come out over the last several of years. But the evidence is growing."

"It still isn't absolutely proven. But when you use a cell phone the radio frequency is the same kind of radiofrequency that drives your micro wave oven. That will cook your potato."

"Now our standards are set to avoid excesive heating, as you would have in a microwave oven."

"But results from Scandinavia, particularly, and also a new study from Israel, show that people that use cell phones regularly, for 10 years or more, are more likely to get brain tumors, tumors of the poratid gland, salivary gland, that's on the side of the face, or tumors of the auditory nerve than people that do not use cell phones."

The reporter asked him "Are we looking potentially at an epidemic of brain cancer?"


Dr. Carpenter replies, "Precisely. That's what our concern is."

"Dr. Carpenter says, " An rather than repeat the dangers that we..... the problems that we had with smoking and lung cancer. We feel... those of us in the public health community, that at least we need to send the message out now."

"You can't walk down the street without seeing every 10 year old on their cell phone. It's a status symbole. It's something that's cool. And kids are spending enormous times on cell phones."

"The childs brain.... their brain is developing, but also, their brain is smaller, and therefore the exposure to a child's brain is greater than that in an adults brain."

Dr Carpenter suggests:

  • That you use a land line when ever possible.

  • Hold the cell phone away from your body.

  • Don't use cell phones when you can use a land line.

  • Respect the fact that radio frequencies may cause very serious diseases.

Cell Phones and Brain Tumors with Video of Dr. Charlie Tia



Dr. Charlie Tia A preeminent Neurosurgeon in Australia, Specializing in Children's Brains.


In a report from Australian News, they reported that there was a 21% increase in childrens brain tumors.



video


Charlie states, "Apendamoma's seem to be increasing in incidence in children."
"I think the EMR, mobile phones, and other electrical appliances may have something to do with what we are seeing."


When the reporter asked him, "What advice do you give your children?"


Charlie said, "alright.... this is a very sore point. My daughter just got a mobile phone, and I was so... against it. It was a real sore point in the family."

Reporter: "How old is she Charlie?"

Charlie, "She's 12"

Reporter, "So she's in that vulnerable age."

Charlie said, "Oh...very vulnerable, her brain is still developing. And I'm really upset that she's got one."
