Evidence That RF/Microwave Radiation
Used For Wireless Technologies is a
Confirmed Human Carcinogen!
 
 
 
 
   
 
Guy Air Force Study at University of Washington Medical School (1984) [4]

This research evaluated rats with full-body exposure to 2.45 gigahertz (2450 megahertz), the main frequency used today for omnipresent Wi-Fi technologies.  The animals were exposed to half the allowable federally-approved maximum exposure for humans. In addition to a significant incidence of cancers,  the exposed rats suffered disastrous effects to their adrenal glands and to their entire endocrine system, including development of endocrine tumors. (Can we wonder why so many microwaved Amerians suffer from adrenal exhaustion, thyroid malfunction, obesity and endocrine tumors? )  LINK

 

  Note:
 
By 1993, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) produced a memo which stated that animal studies strongly suggest that microwaves can "accelerate the development of cancer." Top FDA officials wrote: "Of eight chronic animal experiments known to us, five resulted in increased number of malignancies, accelerated progression of tumors, or both." [5]
 
 
 

 EMF Paper by the Hardell Group in Sweden (1995)  [6]

A team of cancer researchers at Orebro Hospital in Orebro, Sweden, reviewed epidemiological and experimental studies on the bioeffects of extremely low electromagnetic (ELF) fields published up to 1994. They found that these studies confirmed an increased risk of leukemia in children exposed to power lines; an increased risk of chronic lymphocytic leukemia from ELF exposure; also an increased risk of breast cancer, malignant melanoma of the skin, nervous system tumors, acute myeloid leukemia, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and acute lymphocytic leukemia from occupational exposure to these fields. Today's wireless antennas propagate a variety of ELF modulation frequencies which are superimposed upon the carrier microwaves.  LINK

 

  Note:
 
By 2000, European researchers with the ECOLOG Institute in Germany had amassed over 220 peer-reviewed and published scientific papers containing strong indications for cancer-initiating and cancer-promoting effects of the RF/microwave radiation that now saturates our environment to acccommodate wireless technologies. This impressive scientific collection was organized and published at the turn of this century in a document titled Mobile Telecommunications and Health. Actually funded by giants of the telecom industry, the ECOLOG study articulates the incredible amount of early scientific information available on the devastating cellular, hormonal, immunological, neurological and reproductive damage inflicted by pulsed, high-frequency electromagnetic fields.  This collection demonstrates that governments and industry profiteers knew decades ago that the unleashing of unlimted RF/microwave pollution --even at very low power densities-- has potential to make humanity very sick indeed[7]   LINK
 
 

 Case-control Study by the Hardell Group in Sweden (2002)  [8]

Nordic countries were among the first in the world to adopt wireless telecommunications technologies. NMT analog mobile phones came into use in 1981, exposing Nordic populations to 450 and 900 megahertz microwave radiation. By 1991, GSM digital wireless was operational at 900 megahertz and 1.9 gigahertz. Responding to reports of brain cancers in wireless phone users, the Hardell team working at Orebro Hospital in Orebro, Sweden, initiated a case-control study of 233 Swedish brain cancer victims diagnosed between 1994 to 1996.  This study produced the first indications of increased risk for malignancies in those who had used wireless NMT phones. The researchers concluded: “Ipsilateral (same side) use of a cellular telephone increased the risk of tumors in the temporal, temporoparietal and occipital areas…the anatomical areas with highest exposure to microwaves from a mobile phone.” LINK

 
 
Case-control Study by the Hardell Group in Sweden (2003)  [9]

On to something big, the Hardell Group conducted a case-control study of 1,617 brain tumor patients diagnosed between 1997-2000. These numbers showed that the risk for high-grade astrocytoma brain cancer was significantly increased with ipsilateral (same side) use of analogue mobile phones, digital mobile phones and also cordless phones. The odds ratio was highest for development of microwave-induced acoustic neuroma (AN), a usually benign but dangerous tumor that grows on the nerve between the ear and the brain, causing hearing loss and neurological difficulties. AN treatment requires surgery and other risky, invasive procedures.  LINK

 
 
Note:
 
Astrocytomas are the most common primary tumors of the central nervous system. Astrocytomas develop from small, star-shaped cells called astrocytes, and may arise anywhere in the brain or spinal cord.  Grade IV astrocytomas are called glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), considered the most horrific and incurable type of brain tumor. Glioblastomas and anaplastic astrocytomas, accounting for more than 50 percent of all astrocytomas, grow rapidly and spread aggressively. The average lifespan after diagnosis is about 400 days (most of which, reportedly, aren't worth a darn). Brain cancers are often discovered in the final stages, partly because of stealth proteins used by tumors in early malignancy to evade the body's alarm systems.
 
 
 
 
European Union REFLEX studies (2004) [10]

Scientists from ten EU nations showed that cell phone microwaves propagated at 1.8 gigahertz induce severe damage in human blood cells identical to that produced by ionizing nuclear radiation. A mere 24 hours of continuous microwave radiation at this frequency produced cell damage equivalent to 2400 chest X-rays.  This frequency is in the spectrum realm of 2G, 3G and 4G wireless phone radiation.  LINK

 
 

 Case-control Combined Studies By the Hardell Group in Sweden (2006) [11]

The Hardell Group evaluated statistics from two new case-control studies of brain cancer victims diagnosed between 1997-2000. Combined, these studies yielded information on 905 patients. Once again the numbers showed increased risk for high-grade astrocytoma brain cancer in those who used digital cell phones and/or cordless phones. This study showed a high risk for victims who had begun the use of microwave phones before the age of twenty.  This research also determined that the cancer risk was highest for people who had used wireless phones for 10 years or more.  LINK

 
 
Pooled Analaysis of Case-Control Studies/Malignant Brain Tumors by Hardell  (2011) [12]
 
The Hardell Group further analyzed two case-control studies involving 1251 brain tumor victims, alive and deceased, who had been diagnosed during 1997-2003.  This study again confirmed that risk for high-grade astrocytoma brain cancer increases with latency period and cumulative hours of exposure to both cellular and cordless phones. Once again the numbers showed increased risk for those who used microwave phones for over ten years. This study also reconfirmed an extremely high risk for those who had begun the use of microwave phones before the age of 20.  This group charted out at an odds ratio of 4.9. An odds ratio of 1 means no risk, an odds ratio of 4.9 means nearly five time the risk for brain cancer as found in the control group. LINK
 
 

The 13-Nation Interphone Study (2011) [13]

The Interphone Study was designed as a global, case-control inquiry on the link between mobile and cordless phones and various cancers.  The research was conducted in 13 countries using a common protocol. The pooled results showed an increase in risk for glioma brain cancer and acoustic neuroma among microwave phone users, but directors of the study worried that recall bias and error may have prevented a causal interpretation.  In 2011, Cardis et al., published an overview of five of the countries in the study and stated that "there were increased odds ratios for tumors in the most exposed parts of the brain in those with 10+ years of mobile phone use....There were suggestions of an incrased risk of glioma in long term mobile phone users with high RF exposure and of similar, but apparently much smaller increases in meningioma [brain tumor] risk."  Cardis called for replication studies. 
 
The Hardell Group followed Interphone with a published paper explaining that while Interphone data confirmed earlier Hardell findings of cancer risk in wireless phone users between the ages of 29-59 years, Interphone researchers in several countries had excluded the age group 20-29 years Because this age group was shown by Hardell to have a comparatively high brain cancer risk, especially among those who started using microwave phones before the age of twenty, Hardell noted that exclusion of this high-risk group had skewed Interphone statistics and conclusions. Hardell also pointed out that Interphone had included recall information from mentally ill patients who could not be counted upon for accurate data.  LINK
 
 
 
 Acoustic Neuroma Update from Hardell (2013) [14]
 
The Hardell Group made a further study of Swedes diagnosed with acoustic neuroma between the years 1997-2003 and 2007-2009. This pooled analysis of two case-control studies once again confirmed an association between the use of mobile phones and acoustic neuroma tumors of the ear/brain.  LINK
 
 
 
 
 Hardell  Confirmation That Glioma Brain Cancer and Acoustic Neuroma
Are Initiated and Promoted by Wireless Microwave Radiation (2013) [15]
 
The Hardell Group evaluated all nine issues on causation listed by the Bradford Hill criteria, a protocol endorsed by modern medicine as framework for determining cause and effect.  These researchers determined that based on Hill criteria, glioma and acoustic neuroma should be considered to be caused by RF-EMF emissions from wireless phones. This paper states that wireless device emissions are rightly regarded as carcinogenic to humans and should be designated as Group 1A according to the IARC classification.  It also confirms that current guidelines for public exposure to this radiation urgently needs to be revised.  LINK
 
 
 
 Multi-Focal Breast Cancer Study by California Doctors (2013) [16]
 
In late 2013, six medical experts, representing five prestigious California medical establishments, published a paper on young women who developed invasive breast cancer after prolonged exposure to their cell phones: “We report a case series of four young women --ages from 21 to 39-- with multi-focal invasive breast cancer that raises the concern of a possible association with non-ionizing radiation of electromagnetic field exposures from cellular phones. Pathology of all four cases show striking similarity. These cases raise awareness to the lack of safety data of prolonged direct contact with cellular phones. All patients regularly carried their smart phones directly against their breasts, in their brassieres for up to 10 hours a day, for several years, and developed tumors in areas of their breasts immediately underlying the phones...." LINK
 
 
 
 Hardell Review of Decreased Survival of Brain Cancer Patients (2014) [17]
 
Using data from their 1997-2003 and 2007-2009 case-control studies of brain tumor patients, the Hardell group analyzed the impact of wireless phones on the survival rates of 1678 glioma sufferers.  This study yielded evidence of decreased survival in Grade IV astrocytoma patients commensurate with their years of wireless phone use. The highest decrease in survival rate was found in cases who began their use of mobile phones before the age of twenty. These researchers concluded: "Due to the relationship with survival, the classification of IARC is strengthened and RF-EMF should be regarded as human carcinogen requiring urgent revision of current exposure guidelines." LINK
 
 

The French National CERENAT Study (2014) [18]

This human case-control study conducted in populations across France found a significant rate of glioma and meningioma brain tumors in the heaviest users of mobile phones. LINK

 
 
The German Study from Jacobs University (2015) [19]
 
Nine scientists at Jacobs University in Bremen, Germany, published state-of-the-art studies showing that animals exposed to 0.4 down to .04 watts per kilogram [SAR exposure levels 4 to 40 times lower than the 1.6 W/Kg allowed for human brain exposure by U.S. federal guidelines] suffered a significantly higher incidence (than non-irradiated animals) of lung cancer, liver cancer and lymphoma cancer. This research is especially important because it is a replication of a 2010 animal study which had basically produced the same results.  LINK

 

The US National Toxicology Program Study (2016) [20]

Animal studies are considered valid for assessing cancer risk in humans. This $25 million dollar federally-funded study, conducted under auspices of the US Department of Health and Human Services, induced cancer, pre-cancer hyperplasia and DNA damage in a significant percentage of test rats exposed to cell phone microwaves: GSM- or CDMA-modulated at 900 megahertz. This study showed that cell phone radiation produces statistically significant brain and heart schwannoma cancers in animals exposed to this radiation, even at power densities below federal exposure guidelines. LINK

 
 

 Canadian Update on Human Brain Cancer Risk (2017) [21]

A medical team involved with the original Interphone Study completed a re-evaluation of Canadian Interphone data. Using a probabilistic, multiple-bias model, this team confirmed a significant risk of glioma brain tumors among Canadian wireless users interviewed for the  study.  Canada currently has a horrific overall national cancer rate: one in two Canadians will suffer some type of cancer in their lifetime.   LINK
 
 
 
 Hardell  Evaluation of Cancer Risk from Bradford Hill Viewpoints (2017) [22]
 
Tying together the latest global research, the Hardell Group published a detailed analysis of the many ways that mobile phone and cordless phone radiation fulfills Bradford Hill crieteria on association and causation of disease:  The papers lists these crucial Hill points:
 
Strength [of data]: meta-analysis of case-control studies give odds ratio (OR) = 1.90, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.31–2.76 with highest cumulative exposure. Consistency: the risk increases with latency, meta-analysis gave in the 10+ years' latency group OR = 1.62, 95% CI = 1.20–2.19. Specificity: increased risk for glioma is in the temporal lobe. Using meningioma cases as comparison group still increases the risk. Temporality: highest risk is in the 20+ years' latency group, OR = 2.01, 95% CI = 1.41–2.88, for wireless phones. Biological gradient: cumulative use of wireless phones increases the risk. Plausibility: animal studies show an increased incidence of glioma and malignant schwannoma in rats exposed to radiofrequency (RF) radiation. There is increased production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) from RF radiation. Coherence: there is a change in the natural history of glioma and increasing incidence. Experiment: antioxidants reduce ROS production from RF radiation. Analogy: there is an increased risk in subjects exposed to extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields.
 
"Conclusion: RF radiation should be regarded as a human carcinogen causing glioma." LINK
 
 
 
 The Italian Ramazzini Study (2018) [23]
 
The Ramazzini Institute in Italy has published results of its large study in which animals were abused with exposure to 1.8 gigahertz representative of cell tower antenna emissions. This study reports a significant number of Schwann cell tumors (schwannomas) in exposed animals, compared to controls and therefore it strongly supports the findings of the NTP study. Schwann cells are found in most organs of the body, both human and animal. Schwann cells play a key role in the nervous system where they form the myelin sheath and help conduct electrical impulses. The researchers who completed this study are among the many calling for IARC to update its radiofrequency designation commensurate with the documented potential of microwaves to cause cancer in animals and humans. LINK
 
 
The Israeli HL Cancer Studies (2018)  [24]
 
Researchers with the Hebrew University in Isreal have published a study of radiation-related human cancers produced in occupational and military settings. They focused mainly on the extraordinary number of hemolymphatic (HL) cancers produced by communication and radar microwave frequencies.  HL cancers arise from blood cells or lymphoid tissues that involves the liver.  This study is germane to the current Microwave Age with its new vehicle radar driver assist systems, DOT's upcoming Vehicle to Vehicle radar project and the myriad radar antennas deployed by driverless cars. This research analyzed published data from a group of cancer patients with a history of prolonged exposure to RFR, plus three additional cohort studies of heavily irradiated military and industrial workers in various countries. These groups confirm very high HL cancer rates among those irradiated. The Israeli scientists state in their abstract: "Overall, the epidemiological studies on the excess risk for HL and other cancers, together with brain tumors in cell phone users and experimental studies on RFR and carcinogenicity make a coherent case for a cause-effect relationship for classifying RFR exposure as a human carcinogen [IARC Group 1A]." LINK
 
 
 
Yet, We Are Still in the Information Dark Ages!
 
 
 

     Most of the above scientific evidence for the microwave causation of malignancy in man and beast has been gathered mainly from the older wireless technologies, that is: NMT, 2G, 3G and older radar installations. There is little desperately-needed data on the real-life carcinogenicity of the numerous Wi-Fi channel frequencies being delivered non-stop to most people wherever they go: 2.45 to 6 gigahertz
 
    Nor do we have adequate research on the newer 4G/LTE and 4G/WiMax antenna frequencies now saturating the nation: 600 to 850 megahertz and 1.7 to 2.5 gigahertz. Americans have been swiming in 4G wave pollution since 2007 with the advent of smart phones and more so since 2010 when wireless tablets were first handed out like candy. No research group has undertaken comprehensive studies on the bio-effects of ferocious MIMO and beamforming 4G signals roaring from towers and rooftops everywhere.  Millions of device-loving people stream 4G into their flesh for hours each day, then tuck it under their heads at night. Worst of all, many begin microwave abuse in infancy.
 
    Smart personal devices like tablets feature multiple antennas which simultaneously beam differing carrier frequencies along with their diverse modulation signals. The average American is now literally "cooked" with multiple frequencies, propagated by numerous antennas all doing their own vibrational "thing."
 
 
Most enlightening would be studies of human and animal flesh
infused with the actual aggregate assault of:
 
(1) environmental Wi-Fi, indoors and out
(2) GSM and 3G cellular radiation
 (3) 4G beam-forming MIMO radiation 
 (4) smart meter radiation
  (5) radar radiation (24 and 77 gigahertz) blasting from new vehicles
 
 
all delivered in combination to most people
perpetually, year after year! 
 
 
 
  Such realistic studies would shed valuable light on the ever-worsening
annual cancer statistics for both the USA and Canada.
 
 
 
And these authentic studies neeed to be done
BEFORE
5G millimeter wave radiation (30-100 gigahertz)
IS ADDED TO
all of the above existing wireless pollution!!!!!!
 
          
               
 
 
 
 
 Are you getting the picture, America?
 
 
  Does this information make sense to you, Canada?
 
 
  Might it be time to back off from blind worship
of wireless technologies?
