California Medical Association Calls for Stronger Wireless Communication Safety Standards

The Federal safety standards for wireless communications were designed to protect humans from the heating, or thermal, risks caused by exposure to microwave radiation. However, thousands of peer-reviewed studies have found bio-effects from exposure to low intensity, non-thermal levels of microwave radiation. Moreover, three independent, case-control studies have found a two-fold increased risk of brain cancer among adults who have used cell phones for ten or more years. And one study found a three-fold risk of brain cancer after 25 years of cell phone and cordless phone use.

US: Frontal & temporal lobe cancers increased from 1992-2006

This is consistent with the increasing use of cordless phones as well as cell phones by the population. Hardell's case-control research on mobile phone use and brain cancer suggests that cordless phone use may be as harmful as cell phone use, and that tumors are more likely to occur in the frontal and temporal lobes than in other parts of the brain.

Brain and eye deformation in embryos exposed to cell phone calls, 4 x/day, only 15 minutes

"It was concluded that mobile phone electromagnetic waves (900MHz- 1800MHz) might induce embryonic eye growth till 10 days of incubation, and then it might cause brain malformation with reduced body and eye growth in chick embryo. Congenital malformations were seen in treated embryos (bigger embryos, subcutaneous bleeding, and brain malformation) compared to the controls. "

ITALY: Electrosmog, pediatricians alarmed: ‘Ban the cellphone to children under 10 years’ old

This alarm that will result as soon as possible in "guidelines to limit as much as possible the use of mobile phones to children, avoiding completely the use of up to 10 years and limiting, with proper precautions, use even for older ages". Article in English & Italian "Mobile phones,”said Sapia, “are two-way radios that rely upon the ear to talk and there is evidence that the interaction of electromagnetic fields with human biological systems causes a localized increase in body temperature. Very prolonged exposures can cause tissue necrosis (cell death)."

10 Reasons Why Handheld Devices Should Be Banned for Children Under the Age of 12

TV and video game use correlates with increased obesity (Tremblay 2005). Children who are allowed a device in their bedrooms have 30% increased incidence of obesity Technology overuse is implicated as a causal factor in rising rates of child depression, anxiety, attachment disorder, attention deficit, autism, bipolar disorder, psychosis and problematic child behavior

Senator calls for cell phones with warning labels

"This is the first generation to have kids from age 10 up to adulthood with cell phones right next to their heads and brains. Brains are developing up to age 22 to 25, so I think we have to be safe," stated Green. To raise awareness of RF exposure, Green introduced a measure calling for cell phones sold in Hawaii to come with a prominent warning -- similar to what smokers see on the sides of cigarette packages.

Teléfonos Celulares y Salud por Dr. Joel Moskowitz

“Los niños se ven desproporcionadamente afectados… Las diferencias en la densidad ósea y la cantidad de líquido en el cerebro de un niño en comparación con el cerebro de un adulto podrían permitir que los niños absorban más profundamente en sus cerebros cantidades mayores de energía de RF (radiofrecuencia) que los adultos. Es esencial que las nuevas normas para los teléfonos móviles u otros dispositivos inalámbricos se basen en la protección de las poblaciones más jóvenes y más vulnerables para asegurar que estén protegidos a lo largo de sus vidas".

Cellphone Use by Children & Teens = 5 Times Increase in Brain Cancer

A scholarly article on cell phone safety published online in the journal Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine reported the finding that cell phones used in the shirt or pants pocket exceed the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) exposure guidelines and that children absorb twice as much microwave radiation from phones as do adults.

SCIENCE:MOBILE PHONE AFFECTS CEREBRAL BLOOD FLOW IN HUMANS

Our results provide the first evidence, suggesting that the EMF emitted by a commercial mobile phone affects rCBF in humans. These results are consistent with the postulation that EMF induces changes in neuronal activity. Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism

Exposure to microwaves from cellphones results in nerve cell damage

We have previously shown that weak pulsed microwaves give rise to a significant leakage of albumin through the blood-brain barrier. In this study we investigated whether a pathologic leakage across the blood-brain barrier might be combined with damage to the neurons. We found highly significant (p< 0.002) evidence for neuronal damage in the cortex, hippocampus, and basal ganglia in the brains of exposed rats.
