Measuring radiation exposure using current FCC guidelines underestimates how much radiation most people receive from their cellphones, researchers said Monday in a study published in the journal Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine.

The authors of the study, including several members of Environmental Health Trust, a nonprofit organization devoted to identifying and controlling environmental health risks, pointed to several reasons why. One is that the current assessment method bases evaluations of how much radiation people are exposed to from their phones on measurements taken using a quite large, liquid-filled plastic model of the adult human head (known as the Specific Anthropomorphic Mannequin, or SAM). Smaller people — 97% of the population, the authors wrote — will have higher proportional exposure than what is assessed. Children receive twice as much microwave radiation to the head from phones as adults, the study estimated, and 10 times the amount to bone marrow.

Also, current assessments don’t examine exposure to parts of the body other than the head, the study noted. Even when a phone is stowed away in a pocket, it continues emitting radiation that could pose a health concern.

The authors reviewed examples of research demonstrating negative effects of cellphone use, including recent epidemiological studies suggesting correlations between cellphone use and brain cancer. (Whether microwave radiation from cellphones can damage DNA and cause cancer is a subject of debate; click here to read a National Cancer Institute fact sheet on the subject.)

The Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine paper called on the cellphone industry to stop using the SAM-based system to certify phones for use. A better method, the authors said, would be for industry to begin using the computer-based, “virtual family” simulation approach, which assesses the radiation absorption for 10 different-sized people: a 5-year-old girl, a 6-year-old boy, an 8-year old girl, an 11-year-old girl, a 14-year-old boy, a 26-year-old woman, a 35-year-old man, an obese man and three women at different stages of pregnancy.

“The SAM-based certification process should be discontinued forthwith,” the paper concluded. “Because billions of young children and adults with heads smaller than SAM are now using cell phones extensively … it is essential and urgent that governments around the world revise approaches to setting standards for cell phone radiation.”

Misleading Danish Mobile Phones and Brain Tumour Study
Just about every news outlet is telling you that your cell phone is safe, yet no one is really telling you about the faults in the study.
I have been researching the cell phone and related microwave issue for almost 15 years. Everything I have read issues a risk. And I have read research dating back to the early 1940s.

Of course you can make a choice to use a cell phone, a microwave, a smart meter, or have wi-fi in your home but just don’t be lulled by junk science. Get properly informed first before you wake up in 10 years with leukemia because your red blood cell production is failing because you carry your cell phone on your belt, or you can’t have children, or you get thyroid disease or breat cancer, ovariam cancer or your children have behavioral problems or you get a heart attack.
“This misleading study has many flaws and serious confounders and should not give anyone reassurance that mobile phone use is not associated with an increase in brain tumours. In our opinion the paper should not have been published in this form — it should have failed peer-review. We recommend that it is disregarded as low quality science.

Denis Henshaw, Emeritus Professor of Human Radiation Effects at the University of Bristol agrees with this view: “This seriously flawed study misleads the public and decision makers about the safety of mobile phone use. I consider that their claims are worthless.”” READ complete article and find more in this press release –

INDUSTRY PLAYS ‘DOUBT’ CARD TO DOWNPLAY IARC/WHO FINDINGS’
The BMJ is set to publish an ‘update’ to a study that finished over 4 years ago (and used data even older) and was widely criticized at the time for its design – that it appeared to be designed to come out negative for tumors in that they had excluded heavy mobile phone users from the study(the business users).More recent studies – including the Interphone Study (itself somewhat flawed) – have shown significant increased incident of brain tumors and related cancers in long-term (10 years use for1/2 hour per day) mobile phone users. Because of these other studies etc. the World Health Organization (WHO) in conjunction with the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) have this year declared microwave radiation -used by mobile phones and other wireless devices – to be a class 2b carcinogen ” Possibly carcinogenic to humans “[2]

This means that microwave radiation is a possible cause of cancer .The re-release of the Danish study is part of an industry-orchestrated backlash to delay legislation to limit microwave exposure and place mandatory health warnings on mobile phones (in the style of cigarette packets) and other radiation emitting devices such as WiFi routers, smart meters and cordless landlines.
