Have you ever worry that the thing you spend hours holding near to your head may be damaging your brain? Well, the evidence is starting to pour in, and it’s not pretty. So there is a question that why isn’t anyone in America doing anything about it?
A few days before, I have met an investment banker who was diagnosed with a brain tumor five years ago. He is the managing director of a top firm. I have meet him with help of my firend. He was agreed to talk with me if I will not use his name. Therefor I will call him Mark. He has told me that the tumor has been located just behind his right ear and this tumor was not immediately very dangerous and survival rate is about seventy percent. He was 35 years old when he diagnosis and immediately he think that it was the result of his intense cell-phone usage. He said that He was using cell phone since 1990, back when they were the Gordon-Gekko-on-the-beach kind of phone.” When Mark asked his neurosurgeon, who was on the staff of a big medical center in Britain, about the possibility of a cell-phone-induced tumor, the doctor told him that in fact he was seeing more and more of such cases in which young, relatively healthy businessmen who had long used their phones obsessively.
He said that he think that the industry had discredited studies showing there is a risk from cell phones. “I got a thinking that he was pissed off,” Mark said said to me. One of Mark’s colleagues had been already died from brain cancer,And day by daythey are getting more reports he encountered of young finance guys developing tumors, the more certain he felt that it wasn’t a coincidence. Mark said that “I know 4 or 5 peoples who are working at my firm who got tumors”.
It is very dificult to talk on the dangers of cell-phone radiation without sounding like a conspiracy theorist. This is genarlly common in the United States, where non-industry-funded studies are rare, In unitied states legislation protecting the wireless industry from legal challenges has long been in place, and where our lives have been more integrated with wireless technology that it is very difficult to say that it might be a problem.
Cell phone, in fact has more and more effect at the rest of the world. Consider, for example, the following headlines that have appeared in highly reputable international newspapers and journals over the past many years. From summer 2006, in a well reputeted newspaer “ ARE WE TELEPHONING OURSELVES TO DEATH? That fall, in the Danish newspaper: MOBILE PHONES AFFECT THE BRAIN’S METABOLISM.In December 2007, In France newspaper “ ISRAELI STUDY SAYS REGULAR MOBILE USE INCREASES TUMOUR RISK”. January 2008, in London newspaper worte, “ MOBILE PHONE RADIATION WRECKS YOUR SLEEP” . September 2008, in Australia’s Newspaper “ SCIENTISTS WARN OF MOBILE PHONE CANCER RISK”.
Although the scientific debate is heated and far from resolved, there are several reports, generally out of Europe’s premier research institutions, of cell-phone and PDA use being linked to “brain aging,” brain damage, early-onset Alz¬heimer’s, senility, DNA damage, and even sperm die-offs. In September 2007, the European Union’s environmental watchdog, the European Environment Agency, warned that cell-phone technology “might lead to a health disaster similar to those caused by asbestos, smoking, and lead in petrol.”
Perhaps most worrying, though, are the beginning results of the multinational Interphone study sponsored by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, in Lyon, France. Scientists from 13 countries took part in the study, the United States conspicuously not among them. According to Interphone researchers reported in 2008 that after ten years of cell phone use, there is a chance of getting a brain tumor, specially on the side of the head where you use the phone, goes up as much as 40 percent for adults. Interphone researchers in Israel came to know that cell phones may cause tumors of the parotid gland , and an self-governing study in Sweden previous year concluded that people who started using a cell phone before the age of 20 years were five times as likely to develop a brain tumor.
According to one more Interphone study reported a nearly 300% increased risk of acoustic neuroma, a tumor of the acoustic nerve.
As more results of the Interphone study are coming out, I asked David Smith, who has a doctorate in environmental policy from MIT and in 1981 founded an investigative newsletter. He recommended that much of the comfort of our modern lives depends on not caring, we are refusing to recognize the dangers of microwave radiation. “We love our cell phones very much. The example that there’s no danger here is part of a worldview that had to be put into place,” he said
After reading from above we can say that the radiation from cell phones and wireless transmitters affects the human brain, and to get some sense of why the concerns raised in so many studies outside the U.S. are not being seriously raised here, it’s necessary to go back fifty years, long before the advent of the cell phone, to the research of a young neuroscientist named Allan Frey. In fact the studies shows that cell phone can cause problems for health. And it nessessary that we have to find a solution for this problem.
