Despite the fact there is neither a hypothetical mechanism
for radiowaves or microwaves to disrupt DNA and cause
cancer, nor is there compelling evidence that cell phone
radiation can make you sick, a working group of 31
scientists from 14 countries met at the International Agency
for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified radiofrequency
electromagnetic fields as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”
The report stated “there could be some risk” of a causal
link between cell phone use and brain cancer. The group
issued a “2B classification” for cell phone and similar
radio frequency electromagnetic radiation.
The 2B classification paints with quite a broad brush,
ranking cell phone radiation alongside chemical sources that
include both coffee and lead, mustard gas and talcum powder.
The Category 3 classification identifies (among many others)
cholesterol, fluorescent lighting, rust, hepatitis D,
various food colorings, and jet fuel as less a threat than
cell phone radiation.
Now, the IARC reviewed previously published papers in
scientific journals, they did no experiments and performed
no further study to arrive at their conclusion. Among the
studies at their disposal was the analysis of public health
records in the United Kingdom showed no increase in brain
cancers since the wide-spread use of cell phones began in
the 1990s. Another study shows that, in the United States,
as cell phone use has become ubiquitous in the last decade,
brain cancer rates, and deaths thereby, have declined.
Another study, the “interphone” study carried out on 2,708
malignant brain tumor patients from 13 countries showed no
correlation between cell phone use and brain tumor, even for
individuals who had used a cell phone for more than 10
The IARC’s decision weighed heavily on one low statistics
study that showed a 40% increase in glioma, a particular
type of fatal brain cancer. Clearly, they made the
err-on-the-side-of-caution decision for the 2B
Classification of radio frequency radiation.
It’s a rather confusing situation that can benefit from a
bit of prioritization.
Before you start worrying about cell phone radiation, here
is a list of ten activities that are tangible health risks
that you should address first:
1. Do you smoke or hang out with people who smoke? (not just
tobacco, mind you, all smoke contains carcinogens)
2. Do you wear your seatbelt? Does your car have side, head,
and dash airbags? Do you drive the speed limit?
3. Do you floss your teeth? (flossing reduces bacteria
growth that shows a causal relationship to heart disease)
4. Do you get enough exercise? Is your rest pulse rate below
70? Are you overweight?
5. Do you fly in airplanes? (exposure to cancer-causing
radiation like ultraviolet rays and cosmic rays increases at
6. Do you eat fast food, drink alcohol, donuts?
7. Are you stressed? Do you get enough laughter? Do you
meditate, do yoga, pray, wander around in a zone of bliss?
8. Do you talk on the phone or text while driving?
9. Do you live near a busy street? (air pollutants cause a
host of ailments from asthma to emphysema)
10. Do you eat barbequed food? (the charcoal from burnt
flame-cooked food is a carcinogen)
Once you have all of these covered, you could consider
wearing an aluminum foil suit to protect yourself from stray
electromagnetic radiation. Such a suit would actually work,
provided you make sure that it connects to the bottom of
your shoe so you can stay grounded. It's about the only way
to prevent exposure to either natural or unnatural
electromagnetic radiation, though it does nothing to combat
The thing is, if society is serious about reducing the risk
of tragic injury and death, the easiest solution is to
reduce the highway speed limit to 55 mph.
