A new report by the Swedish Radiation Protection Foundation, Stralskyddsstiftelsen, has concluded that ever-increasing rates of both brain and central nervous system (CNS) tumors, particularly in Denmark, may be caused by persistent exposure to radiation from mobile phones, microwaves, and other “smart” technology devices that pervade modern society.
Published on January 20, the report shows that such tumors have become increasingly more prevalent since 1990, and especially since 2004 when mobile phones really started to become popular. The data suggests that increasing rates of cancer in the brain, spinal cord cover, CNS spinal cord, and cranial nerves are directly correlated with the increasing use of radioactive devices, including in young people.
Individuals who are more likely to use smart technology devices like Apple iPhones or Wi-Fi enabled tablet devices and laptop computers are much more prone to develop cancer in these areas than those who don’t. In fact, such cancers are so prevalent that they are almost on par with rates of melanoma, a type of skin cancer that is much more common.
While there have been claims made by the US National Cancer Institute and the Swedish Radiation Authority that this phenomenon isn’t occurring, this just does not align with Stralskyddsstiftelsen’s extensive research into the subject over the past several decades, which points to some serious anomalies. It would seem that government authorities are either failing or are refusing to acknowledge the dangers of electromagnetic radiation.
“Case control studies repeatedly show increased risks for CNS tumors from mobile and cordless phone use,” the group’s latest report emphasizes. “Ever since 2010 all studies investigating risks for brain tumors from mobile phone use over 30 minutes to one hour a day over several years have found increased risks for CNS tumors (glioma, acoustic neuroma and also meningioma).”
“Today 75% of Swedish 16 year old girls use their ‘smart phone’ over three hours a day and they have been wrongly informed that there are no health risks observed, often with reference to incorrect claims about brain tumor incidence trends.”
Authorities in the US, Sweden, and elsewhere can deny all they want the correlative, and potentially causative, links between the use of smart devices and cancer, but the science speaks for itself. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of published studies and reports that show cancer rates increasing right alongside smart device usage.
For instance, a report by EMFWise Health Effects of Wireless Radiation states that, because microwave radiation can directly penetrate the body, there are serious immune risks associated with the use of these appliances. Some of these risks include alterations of immune cells, changes in lymphocytes, reduced lymphocyte count and hypersensitivity that manifests as autoimmunity.
Non-thermal microwave radiation directly impacts water, it turns out, and the human body is made up of as much as 70 percent water. When interacting with this radiation, the water in the human body is disrupted, which in turn disrupts the complex communications apparatus that exists in the body’s cellular network, which uses water to send and receive information.
Similar problems exist for mobile phones, which come into direct contact with the head, hands, and other parts of the body. Electromagnetic pollution ends up interfering with the body wherever the phone is resting, whether via the leg through a pants pocket, the brain as it’s pressed against the ear or in the arm as it’s held in one’s hand.
At this time, industry-funded research on the matter directly conflicts with independent research in most cases. The former presents a cohort of evidence, only 32 percent of which suggests harmful effects, while 70 percent of the latter’s research shows harmful effects.
