Mobiles and cancer
EMR Australia, Tuesday, June 07, 2016

A recent paper by Professor Simon Chapman claims that there is no increased rate of brain tumours in Australia that correlates with increased use of mobile phones. Following the publication of this paper, a number of articles have appeared, suggesting that mobile phones don't increase brain tumour rates. That's not so, say scientists from the US. Professor Devra Davis, engineer Lloyd Morgan and Anthony Miller, in their article,“Why there can be no increase in all brain cancers tied with   read more

Mobile phone-cancer study
EMR Australia, Monday, May 30, 2016

A major, $25 million US study has found an increased risk of cancer in rats exposed to mobile phone radiation over a two-year period. The 25,00 rats, exposed for nine hours a day to 900 and 1900 MHz mobile phone signals, developed increased rates of gliomas and schwannomas of the heart. You can see the video here.

Mobile-cancer link firmed
EMR Australia, Thursday, May 26, 2016

The results of a ten-year research project by the US National Toxicology Program (NTP) have shown that mobile phone radiation increased cancer rates in animals. The program was undertaken to test the idea that mobile phone radiation did not cause health problems. The reverse was, in fact, found. The scientists exposed rats to radiation from GSM and CDMA mobile phones over a two-year period. The animals developed increased rates of glioma brain tumours and schwannoma heart tumours.

Late Lessons
EMR Australia, Thursday, March 28, 2013

European Environment Agency advises precaution for mobile phone use. In January the European Environment Agency (EEA) issued a major report which has recommendations for mobile phone users and administrators. ‘Late Lessons from Early Warnings Vol II’ is a 750-page document that considers the risks of new technologies and the consequences of ignoring them. It includes case studies on mercury poisoning, hormone-disrupting chemicals in plastics, nuclear radiation, genetically modified organ  read more

Brain tumour controversy
EMR Australia, Thursday, March 10, 2011

Why is it that the Interphone and Orebro University studies on mobile phones and brain tumours have found different results? In a new paper, Dr Lennart Hardell from Orebro University in Sweden explains that the findings are not so different after all. Hardell’s team has conducted a reanalysis of the data in their previous research, applying the criteria used by the Interphone project. To do this they: only considered tumour patients aged 30 to 59 they disregarded subjects’ cordless   read more

BioInitiative report (2007)
EMR Australia, Saturday, December 29, 2007

A collaboration of international scientists has identified health problems from low levels of EMR from electrical and communications technology. Exposure to even everyday levels of radiation from electrical and communications technologies can have harmful effects on the body — and international standards are inadequate to protect public health. These are among the conclusions of the report of the BioInitiative Working Group released in late August. It concludes that, “The scientifi  read more

SCENIHR Report
EMR Australia, Friday, June 08, 2007

The European Commission has just released a report on the “Possible effects of Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) on Human Health.” After reviewing recent studies, the authors find limited evidence of risk but recommend further research. For radiofrequency radiation from communications technology, the report concludes that there is no consistent evidence of health problems. “The balance of epidemiologic evidence indicates that mobile phone use of less than 10 years does not pose any increa  read more

ELF and brain tumours
EMR Australia, Wednesday, March 05, 2003

Spanish researcher Dr Marina Pollan has investigated the interaction of magnetic fields from the power system and carcinogenic chemicals on the incidence of two types of brain cancer—gliomas and meningiomas. Her subjects were 1.5 million Swedish men who had worked between 1970 and 1989. She found that: exposure to magnetic fields but not chemicals did not increase glioma risk; exposure to magnetic fields above 2 mG plus solvents increased glioma risk by 50%; exposure to magn  read more

EMF and Brain Tumours
EMR Australia, Monday, September 02, 2002

Dr Paul Villeneuve has found a link between exposure to magnetic fields at work and brain tumours. The Canadian researcher conducted a study of 543 men with brain tumours and the same number of controls. He found that: Men who were exposed to an average of 6 mG or more had a 33% increased risk of brain tumours; Men working in higher fields had 12 times the chance of developing aggressive brain tumours, including grade III and grade IV astrocytomas (or glioblastoma multiforme).   read more
