Cancer Expert Declares Cell Phone and Wireless Radiation as Carcinogenic to Humans

http://www.sbwire.com/press-releases/cancer-expert-declares-cell-phone-and-wireless-radiation-as-carcinogenic-to-humans-849135.htm

Longtime World Health Organization advisor Anthony B. Miller M.D. updates opinion linking wireless exposures to cancer based on new scientific evidence.

Teton Village, WY — (SBWIRE) — 08/16/2017 — An expert cancer researcher and advisor to the World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer (WHO/IARC) has issued his scientific opinion that radiofrequency (RF) radiation from any source – such as the signals emitted by cell phones, other wireless and cordless and sensor devices, and wireless networks – fully meets criteria to be classified as a “Group 1 carcinogenic to humans” agent, based on scientific evidence associating RF exposure to cancer development and cancer promotion.

“The evidence indicating wireless is carcinogenic has increased and can no longer be ignored,” stated Dr. Anthony B. Miller at a July 31, 2017 lecture in Jackson Hole, Wyoming sponsored by the Environmental Health Trust where international experts presented the best available science on cell phone and wireless radiation. In 2011, WHO/IARC classified RF radiation from any source as a “Group 2B possibly carcinogenic to human” agent. Miller believes the evidence published since 2011 fulfills the requirements to re-classify RF radiation as a “Group 1 carcinogenic to humans” agent.

Miller explained that the basis for his opinion includes recent scientific publications which include the 2017 re-analysis of data from the Interphone study, the 2014 French National CERENAT Study, several new publications on Swedish cancer data, and the 2016 results of the National Toxicology Program.

Dr. Anthony B. Miller is a physician epidemiologist who specializes in cancer etiology, prevention, and screening. Miller is Professor Emeritus at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health of the University of Toronto and Senior Medical Advisor to the Environmental Health Trust. He has been a longtime advisor to the World Health Organization (WHO) and was Senior Epidemiologist for the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). He served as Director of the Epidemiology Unit of the National Cancer Institute of Canada, Chair of the Department of Preventive Medicine and Biostatistics at the University of Toronto, Head of the Division of Cancer Epidemiology at the German Cancer Research Centre, and Consultant to the Division of Cancer Prevention of the U.S. National Cancer Institute. He has performed research about electromagnetic fields and cancer and has served on many committees assessing carcinogenicity of various exposures. Miller was visiting Senior Scientist in the IARC Monographs programme as a reviewer to the scientific literature supporting designation of Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields (RF-EMF) as a Group 2B possible carcinogen in 2011.

Other experts agree that the increased evidence now establishes RF radiation as a human carcinogen. For example, researchers Dr. Lennart Hardell and Michael Carlberg have published several epidemiological studies that found increased brain cancer associated with long-term cell phone use and conclude that “RF radiation should be regarded as a human carcinogen causing glioma.” In addition, published epidemiological research has also found persons diagnosed with brain cancer had decreased survival rates associated with higher wireless phone use.

In response to skeptics who claim, “There is no evidence,” researchers point to published research that has consistently found increased cancer risk in well-designed case control studies that have looked at persons who used cell phones for more than ten years.

The July 31, 2017 panel presentation included international experts. Dr. Annie Sasco presented the WHO/IARC process used to classify carcinogenic agents. Dr. Devra Davis presented research finding wireless radiation results in sperm damage and alters brain development. Dr. Moe Mellion presented Dr. Iris Udasin’s clinical cases of World Trade Center first responders who developed brain cancer after combined environmental exposures to chemical toxins and wireless radiation. Theodora Scarato, MSW presented policies enacted by governments worldwide to reduce RF radiation exposures. Dr. Marc Arazi presented data released by the cell phone radiation test program of the Government of France, which found that when cell phones are tested in body contact positions, RF radiation exposure exceeds regulatory limits. Environmental Health Trust plans to post all lectures and videos from the July 31, 2017 presentation online.

MP Paul Fletcher States 5G Unlikely Threat

In the public interest.

Paul Fletcher is a former IT lobbyist, he is an expert in the IT industry who is now the Communications Minister.  He was a Chair of Smart Cities and former Social Services Minister.

Is it ethical to privatise any public asset?  Importantly should public funds be use to develop a asset then sell it to those who profit from it.  Is that legal?

5G ‘unlikely’ significant threat to NBN business, privatisation talk ‘premature’: Minister Featured

The Australian Government Minister responsible for delivery of the National Broadband Network says the introduction of 5G services in Australia is unlikely to pose a significant threat to the NBN business plan – and has swept aside ’premature’ talk about privatisation of the network.

Commenting on NBN Co’s release of its corporate white paper on Tuesday, the Minister for Communications Paul Fletcher said the NBN business plan assumes about 75% of households will take up the NBN “so there’s already an assumption that some households will not take up the NBN for a range of reasons and that can potentially include 5G”.

And in answer to media questions he said it was “premature” to be talking about the privatisation of NBN – and asked how many more households he was expecting to sign up to the NBN under the new pricing, the Minister said we believe there is about 500,000 budget conscious households within the existing NBN footprint who right now are not taking the NBN because they don’t think it represents value for money for what they want to do”.

“If we can have more retail service providers offering a $60 a month retail priced plan with no monthly data download limit, we think that here’s a prospect of getting some of those 500,000 households to come onto the NBN.

“I’ll leave it to NBN and the retail service providers to make the precise predictions but it stands to reason that if you’ve got more attractive pricing with that unlimited data, no monthly data download limit, if we can have more retailers in the market offering that plan, I think we’ve got a good chance of getting some of those people to come across to the NBN.”

The Minister said that when the previous Labor government established the NBN and legislated the arrangements in relation to it, “they set out in the legislation a series of steps that need to occur before NBN can be privatised.”

And, while acknowledging that 5G is a “very significant development” in mobile telecommunications, the Minister said, however, that it is unlikely to present a significant threat to the NBN business plan.

“It’s important to understand the amount of data that households are consuming is going up very dramatically. In June this year on the NBN, the average user downloaded 255GB a month,” Minister Fletcher said.

“Just nine years ago on fixed line networks that number was 11GB a month. We’ve gone from 11 to 255 a month.

“With that continued growth in data demand, a fixed line network like the NBN is always going to have an advantage in delivering efficient and economic prices at a proposition that is attractive to customers.

“That capacity to download huge amounts of data people are already consuming and they’ll likely increase,” the Minister concluded.

5G Adversely Affects Health and Possible Carcinogen

In the public interest.  5G is not safe and requires further testing.

I note statements being made in the media today, that RT (Russian media) is spreading propaganda about 5G.  This is not true, there are others in the global community who concur about the health impacts of 5G.  Experts in Canada indicate there is no evidence the 5G technology is safe.  There is evidence of the health effects and that it is a potential Carcinogen.

So what is the truth about 5G?

The telecom industry have not indicated that these are new technologies that have not been tested.  Refer Tom Wheeler in the next blog.  I will post APaul Fletcher (Communication Minister’s) in Australia’s statement about 5G.

The Wireless Technology Symposium in Toronto, Canada forum on Wireless Technology with a focus on 5G.

Dr. Magda Havas at the Wireless Technology Symposium in Toronto, Canada on May 31, 2019. These are her comments, the video is below article on 5G.

Refer https://magdahavas.com/category/electrosmog-exposure/microwave-radiation-electrosmog-exposure/page/2/

Brief notes from the video (below).

  • Local planning authorities and the public have no say.
  • Advertising about 5G new frequency never tested for long term biological and health affects
  • Used in airport scanners and US military – crowd control.  
  • High intensities cause intense heat and pain
  • Sweat glands act like mini antennae
  • lower frequencies damage to eyes, loss of insect populations (declining), anti-biotic and bacteria, physiological affects on the immune and nervous system
  • microwave levels trillions of times higher then they were 50 years ago
  • radiate 24 hours a day, constant exposure
  • cell phones,tables, wifi, video games, smart meters, smart appliances etc.
  • electromagnetic sensitivity (pollution)
  • Dr Bray’s Environmental Health Clinic as many as 1 million people are sensitive, likely to increase with exposure
  • Major symptoms – insomnia, chronic fatigue, mood disorders, poor short term memory, difficulty concentrating, depression, heart palpatations (interpreted as anxiety).  Symptoms:  skin problems, nose bleeds, elevated blood sugar, extreme cases loss of conscientious, 
  • Microwave frequencies shown in scientific studies contribute to cancer and damage sperm.
  • Scientists and medical doctors across US and UK requesting delayed deployment until testing conducted on long term biological effects of 5G technology.
  • Scientific debate about health effects of microwave over.  Microwave radiation levels exposure adversely affecting human health of that there is no doubt.  
  • Current debate can we afford the health costs that will occur with roll out of 5G
  • Federal government failed to protect us from rising levels of microwaves, downloading financial fallout onto the provinces to pay for health costs.
  • Adopt Precautionary Approach to 5G until we better understand the consequences of this technology.

Dr. Miller (2011 WHO, International Agency for Research on Cancer, classified radio frequency radiation that the blanket name signal (cellphones, wifi, towers) class 2B possible carcinogen  

  • Evidence available state wireless radiation may give you cancer
  • Anthony Miller reviewed evidence
  • National Health Scientist for Canadian Government
  • Medal of Honour for research on cancer
  • (Miller) Associated International Agency for research on cancer recommended the WHO list all radio frequency radiation, radiation that powers cellphones, wifi as possible carcinogen, 2B, list of possible carcinogens includes lead and DDT (2011)
  • Classification based on epidemiology 
  • Human and animal.  Human new analysis – Interphone, updated analysis studies in Sweden.  Sweden first countries to introduce cell phones, demonstrated the longer exposure the greater the risk
  • Learned that we should not allow companies to introduce new chemicals without first being tested for carcinogenicity. Same for radiation.
  • Two studies in last 10 years reported last year 1) national toxicology program in the United States (animal) Ramazzini institute in Italy – prolonged exposure increases the risk to cancer.  Cancer similar to cancer in humans. Radiation increases damage to DNA, then risk of cancer increases substantially.
  • Prevent introduction of 5G

Doctors, Experts Call for Delaying Deployment of 5G Due to Health Risks

Doctors, Experts Call for Delaying Deployment of 5G Due to Health Risks

 

TORONTO, Canada—Although 5G, or fifth generation wireless technology, promises faster download speeds and conveniences that most of us have never dreamed of, we’ll also be blanketed with a new type of radiation called “millimeter waves,” according to health experts who warn of the rising risks associated with the rollout of 5G.

At the Wireless Technology Symposium in Toronto on May 31, experts discussed evidence of adverse health effects from 5G technology and answered questions from the audience.

“It’s not been made clear to the public that 5G won’t just be another number and a letter on your cell phone,” said Frank Clegg, former president of Microsoft Canada. “It requires an entirely new infrastructure of thousands of small cellular antennas to be erected throughout the cities where it’s going to be installed.”

What would 5G infrastructure look like? Small cell antennas could be placed as close as every third utility pole.

Scientists from 42 countries are warning their governments about the emerging health problems associated with wireless radiation, and Canadian doctors and scientists have added their concerns.

“The most prevalent symptoms include headache, fatigue, decreased ability to concentrate, tinnitus, irritability and insomnia,” said Dr. Riina Bray, an environmental health consultant. “Impacts on the heart and nervous system are also of concern.”

Bray has been working at the Provincial Environmental Health Clinic for 15 years, and she’s seen the number of people suffering adverse effects from electromagnetic exposure rising.

“We predict that the number of people who develop the symptoms I just mentioned will rise in the places where 5G is first installed,” said Bray.

NEXT. 5G wireless technology is on the way. But some doctors are warning of its potential health risks. They want the province to act. We’ll talk to one of those doctors, coming up next. Riina Bray is our guest at 6:48. #ldnont More here: https://www.cbc.ca/1.5113309 

 

Professor and researcher Dr. Magda Havas is internationally recognized for her studies on the biological effects of electromagnetic pollution. She said that at high intensities these waves cause intense heat and pain because sweat glands on the surface of our skin act like mini antennas.

“At lower intensities, scientists are predicting damage to eyes, loss of insect populations which are already declining, antibiotic resistance in bacteria, and physiological effects on the nervous system and the immune system,” said Havas.

Radiation from radio frequencies is classed in the same category of carcinogens as lead.

Dr. Anthony Miller, an advisor to the World Health Organization said there’s now enough evidence that if they were to re-evaluate radiofrequency (RF) radiation, it would be labeled as carcinogenic to humans.

“Governments could not possibly ignore that,” said Miller.

Some say the scientific debate about the health effects of RF radiation is over. But the question remains: Can we afford to take this risk?

Medical doctors are requesting delayed 5G deployment until testing can be conducted on the long-term biological effects of the technology.
