In March of this year, Dr Vini G. Khurana, an Australian Neurosurgeon, made news headlines declaring that, based on his research of the literature, the long-term use of cell phones was leading to brain tumors and was more dangerous to health than smoking cigarettes.

The relationship between exposure to electromagnetic fields (ELFs) and brain tumor incidence has long been a subject of concern and research in the neurosciences and oncology. However, until this last year, most studies have failed to show a clear relationship between cell phone use and brain tumors.

Then in April of 2007, Lennart Hardell, a professor of oncology and cancer epidemiology at the University Hospital in Orebro, Sweden, along with 4 other authors published an article using case-controlled and cohort studies that clearly demonstrates that the use of cell phones for 10 years or more is associated with an increased risk for the development of glioma and acoustic neuroma ipsilateral to the side where the phone was used.

Subsequently, in April of this year, the same authors published a
meta-analysis of several studies on the topic and also concluded that there is a positive relationship between long-term cell phone use and ipsilateralglioma and acoustic neuroma.

Needless to say, such findings are alarming. Cell phones are ubiquitous in our society, and the numbers and use of such devices have increased exponentially since being introduced in the mid-1980s. Furthermore, cell phone use by teenagers and even preteens has also grown to become common place.

Cellphone Health Study on Hold Part 3

The reasons are “not sinister,” he assured. “They have to do with facts and data that can legitimately be interpreted in different ways.”

Asked why Canada hasn’t released an analysis of its own data as eight other countries have, Siemiatycki said it was agreed at the outset that Canada would release its study after Interphone is published. For this reason the Canadian data, while collected, has not yet been analyzed.

“And doing so won’t be a trivial task,” he added.
Australia and Israel have also not published their national Interphone results, but the scientists heading up each country’s research have said publicly, including in interviews with the Star, that there are concerning patterns emerging for long-term use.

It’s part of the reason why Toronto Public Health and the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, in what some considered a controversial move, both recommended this summer that children minimize their use of cellphones and use headsets as a precaution.

Blank isn’t surprised there’s a concern.
“I think there’s going to be a building up of momentum,” he said.

Cellphone health study on hold Part 2

None of the five countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Israel and Italy, has complied with the request. The scientists heading up Canada’s portion of Interphone haven’t even responded.

“They don’t want the results to come out. It’s as simple as that,” said Blank.
Three cities are part of the Canadian study: Ottawa, Montreal and Vancouver. The Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association, which has consistently maintained that cellphones are not harmful to use and comply with all Canadian safety standards, contributed $1 million to the Ottawa portion through a third-party organization.

However, the association said it isn’t aware of when the
results will be published and doesn’t know the reason for the delay.

“I have no idea why the full Interphone study has not been released,” said spokesperson Marc Choma. “Interphone does not report to us.”
Dr. Daniel Krewski, a professor in the department of epidemiology and community medicine at the University of Ottawa, is heading up the Ottawa study. He did not reply to an interview request, either directly or through his office.

In a May interview, however, Krewski told the Star there was a concern that certain biases in the Interphone results such as study subjects overestimating their long-term cellphone use may be skewing the analysis.
His counterpart in Montreal, Dr. Jack Siemiatycki at the University of Montreal, told the Star in an e-mail exchange last week that the BioInitiative Working Group has no greater or lesser claim to the data than anyone else.

“There are no people in the world who want to see the Interphone results published more than the Interphone collaborators ourselves,” Siemiatycki said.
“It has proven very difficult to achieve an agreed upon manuscript for publication.”

It’s supposed to be the mother of all studies into cellphones and their potential link to head cancers, a definitive report that the multibillion-dollar wireless industry has partially funded.

But the published analysis of the 13-country Interphone study is two years late and likely to be delayed further as the more than 50 scientists involved bicker over how to interpret the results, knowing full well that any hint at health risks would have a profound impact on the industry.

The stakes are high, and the steps toward the final outcome are being closely watched. More than three billion people around the world use a cellphone, and while sales next year are expected to fall slightly amid tough economic times, wireless gadgets like the BlackBerry and iPhone are woven into the fabric of our daily lives.

Participating countries are free to publish their individual national results, and eight countries have.

Among Nordic countries, there are already hints that cellphone use for 10 years or longer increases the risk of developing glioma and acoustic neurinoma tumours on the side of the head where a handset is held.

It’s far from definitive, but suggestive enough to spark closer scrutiny from some scientific corners. Growing impatient and citing the public’s right to get “the whole pattern,” a group of scientists calling themselves The BioInitiative Working Group are urging the remaining five countries including Canada to hand over their results “without further delay.”

“There is a lot of data that’s been obtained, but not all of it, and the people sitting on it are being obstructionists for a particular reason,” said Dr. Martin Blank, a professor of cellular biophysics at Columbia University in New York City and one of 11 scientists who signed a letter earlier this month asking for speedy release of the data.

Scientists find hole in Earth’s magnetic field

http://www.emfnews.org/qlinks.html

LOS ANGELES Recent satellite observations have revealed the largest breach yet seen in the magnetic field that protects Earth from most of the sun’s violent blasts, researchers reported Tuesday. The discovery was made last summer by Themis, a fleet of five small NASA satellites.
Scientists have long known that the Earth’s magnetic field, which guards against severe space weather, is similar to a drafty old house that sometimes lets in violent eruptions of charged particles from the sun. Such a breach can cause brilliant auroras or disrupt satellite and ground communications.

Observations from Themis show the Earth’s magnetic field occasionally develops two cracks, allowing solar wind — a stream of charged particles spewing from the sun at 1 million mph — to penetrate the Earth’s upper atmosphere.

Last summer, Themis calculated a layer of solar particles to be at least 4,000 miles thick in the outermost part of the Earth’s magnetosphere, the largest tear of the protective shield found so far.
“It was growing rather fast,” Themis scientist Marit Oieroset of the University of California, Berkeley told an American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco.

Such breaches are temporary, and the one observed last year lasted about an hour, Oieroset said.
Solar flares are a potential danger to astronauts in orbit but generally are not a risk to people on the surface of the Earth.

The research was funded by NASA and the National Science Foundation.
Scientists initially believed the greatest solar breach occured when the Earth’s and sun’s magnetic fields are pointed in opposite directions. But data from Themis found the opposite to be true. Twenty times more solar wind passed into the Earth’s protective shield when the magnetic fields were aligned, Oieroset said.

His research and teaching, extend from the physiology and biochemistry of photosynthesis and photorespiration through the biological effects of electromagnetically treated water to the electrophysiology of plants. He also designed an experiment for the Anglo-Russian ‘Juno’ space mission and is now a member of the Life Sciences Advisory Group for the European Space Agency.

As well as ‘regular’ scientific papers, mainly on plant electrophysiology, he has written several popular science feature articles for the New Scientist on such diverse subjects as ‘Why Trees are Green’ and ‘The Cell Electric’ (on the evolution of plant and animal action potentials and the origin of the nervous system).

His interest in the biological effects of electromagnetic fields dates back over 30 years but has only recently come to fruition with the publication of a new theory that explains many of their seemingly weird effects in simple physico-chemical terms. It was first published (mainly in relation to plants) in Plant Electrophysiology Theory and Methods, Ed AG Volkov (Springer 2006). This was followed by an Internet publication in 2007 (which can be viewed on this site) entitled ‘The Biological Effects of Weak Electromagnetic Fields’, which deals with their effects on humans and animals and, in particular, the dangers from mobile phones.

Martin Weatherall’s Letter to Daily Planet Regarding Wireless Dangers

Mast-victims talked to Dr Goldsworthy at the Radiation Research Conference in London and he gave a brilliant interview where he explains how weak electromagnetic fields damage living cells.

Click the source link at the bottom to go to the “resources” section and listen to the interview.

About Dr. Goldsworthy:

Andrew Goldsworthy is an Honorary Lecturer in Biology at Imperial College London. He retired from full time teaching in 2004 but still gives occasional lectures there in specialist subjects such as food irradiation and the (exorbitant) energy cost of modern food production.

He was born just before the Second World War and, after a grammar school education in Wales, obtained a First Class Honours Degree in Botany, followed by a PhD at the University College of Swansea. He then took a lecturing post at Imperial College London where, apart from a short secondment to work in agricultural research and a sabbatical in the USA, he has been ever since.

At Imperial, he acquired a reputation among students for explaining complex subjects in simple terms, for ‘out of the box’ thinking, and for spicing his courses with unusual lectures such as those on space biology and the scientific basis of acupuncture.

New Health Warning MOBILES COULD DAMAGE YOUR HEART AND KIDNEYS Part 2

http://www.emfnews.org/qlinks.html
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTZOlDP_Rug[/youtube]

In the United Kingdom alone around 16 million people regularly use mobiles.

The Government-backed National Radiological Protection Board maintains mobile phone radiation levels are well within safety limits.

But other studies have already shown links between the phones and long-term memory loss, high blood pressure and premature ageing.

The phones have also been linked to cancer, leukaemia, multiple sclerosis and Alzeimers disease.

The Government is set to announce further funds for research into possible health affects of mobiles early next year.

New Health Warning MOBILES COULD DAMAGE YOUR HEART AND KIDNEYS Part 1

A DISTURBING new report claims that mobile phones could cause serious long-term damage to the heart and kidneys.

Scientists found that exposing red blood cells to low-level radiation caused them leak a substance called haemoglobin.

The iron-based part of a red blood cell is vital because it carries oxygen around the body.

But if the haemoglobin leaks from the cells then it accumulates in the kidneys and heart, which could seriously damage your health.

Professor Edward Tuddenham, a haematologist at the Imperial College Medical School, in Hammersmith Hospital, West London, said: “Generally at a low level the body deals with these things, but if it was exposed over a long period it could lead to complications.

“The accumulation of haemoglobin in the body could result in heart disease or kidney stones.”

He added: “I believe this study should be followed up.

“It certainly warrants further work.”

And Dr Martin Howard, consultant haematologist at York District Hospital, North Yorks, added: “The findings of this study are interesting. More research in this field is definitely necessary.”

The study was carried out by Dr George Sajin at the European Research Institute for Electronic Components based in Bucharest.

Samples of blood were exposed to varying degrees of microwave radiation over a period of between 10 and 60 hours.

Even at levels lower than those emitted by mobile phones, the cells leaked haemoglobin.

The new evidence is likely to fuel fears over the increasingly widespread use of mobile phones throughout the world.
