Better to be careful than sorry.
If after 50 years all the alarmists can point to are in vitro studies and nebulous in vivo effects that are not consistently replicable especially at larger and larger sample sizes, is it any wonder that the alarmist camp is rejected by health authorities? I have no interests in reading any more quotes from any book — links of original studies please — medline or any other database will do — preferable something from the new millennium — anything that has the date on it is bound to be awfully out of date non-reproducible.
A Disconnect between cell phone fears and science – Science-Based Medicine
Ketcham did make some effort to find some scientists who believe the data support being very cautious about cell phone use. Michael is a founder and the chair of the board of directors of Bad Science Watch. These showed that subjects who used a cellphone 10 or more years doubled the risk of developing brain gliomas, a type of tumor. A recent US study came to a similar conclusion.
This is simply not credible. The separation distance is for body worn and not for the head position and therefore is disconnec to brain cancer. The faster a wave oscillates and the smaller it is, the shorter the distance it can reach.
In the case of cellphones that’s what they’ve done as well.
If all of these statements can be backed up, everyone should read this. Place it on a table or your dashboard so that you are nowhere near the antenna. Another example of a major falsehood in the book is the section she calls My Unpublished Result.
What is relevant is the energy level of the different wavelengths of EM energy; my emphasis being that the energy of visible light is vastly greater than that of the EM energy used in wireless technology.
Further, even if you can establish that there is a risk which has not been doneyour decision is rational only if it is informed by the size of the risk. Martin Blank, who has aptly commented about politician vs. Davis and many others, have reviewed the research, met with scientists, and concluded that these devices are far from harmless.
Others — choose like the friends here— to sit back and wait for absolute hard evidence to accumulate or not. The overall conclusion of no increase in risk is the key finding.
Davis and other EMF alarmists are attempting to do an end run around the mainstream scientists responsible for public health standards. Getting rid of wireless forms of communication is a logical first step. In fact, most have been refuted by far more comprehensive and rigorous studies. Cure Cancer the Natural Way? Davis is a leading voice in this regard, who has chosen to continue shouting and exposing despite intimidation from all sides, daviw I respect her for it.

Part II: Cell Phones and Cancer
