A Major US study has raised eyebrows in respect to cell phone, or perhaps even WiFi radiation increasing risks of cancer in the brain, and elsewhere. The rodent modeled testing set a new standard in subject pool, and in duration, as the “lifetime” study was done on a significant group of test rats with multiple groups of 90 rats being put under the microscope so to speak.
There were a few key factors in this study that help to not only simplify the relationship, but also to establish the concern as potentially very great. Of course, as with any ground breaking study, new information could come to light so further studies are needed.
But, for now, it is pretty important to look at the fact that with an increase in radiation, there was an increase in tumors. Thus, a straight line relationship exists. What this really means for all of us, is that with an increase in exposure (which is naturally happening in our society), there appears to be a direct increase in percentage of people with brain and heart tumors.
There is one interesting wrench that was thrown in the data, and I want to point this out for two reasons:
The findings are not definitive, and there were other confusing findings that scientists cannot explain—including that male rats exposed to the radiation seemed to live longer than those in the control group. “Overall we feel that the tumors are likely related to the exposures,” says Bucher, but such unanswered questions “have been the subject of very intense discussions here.”
First off – what could possibly cause the group who is exposed to the radiation… who is becoming more sick with cancer of the brain and heart, to live longer? It is an interesting question that I do not have an answer to… yet.
But second, it helps to point out the never ending principle, that science is not perfect, because we are made imperfect. Huge differences exist from person to person in immunity and overall health. Likewise, these huge differences exist in rodents. Thus, you cannot always predict what will happen to a group based on what is dealt to them, simply because their healing and function is outside of predictable.
Our goal is to make you that un-predictable. Healthy beyond the research, and nothing like a least common denominator, and everything like the greatest denominator. Pursue health, who knows what will happen.
One great advancement that can help to reduce the overall intensity of the radiation you receive from cell phones, is to be use the increases in technology. I only use earbuds, speaker, or bluetooth. I never put a phone to my head (this is not a wholly capable protection according to the research here and that which has preceded this). Secondly, the function “Hey Siri” which allows the newer iPhone to begin listening to your voice command without ever touching the phone, is a great way to communicate with your phone.
Turning your phone to airplane mode at night, as well as any time your kids are playing with it, can be beneficial. Of course most games that they want to play require Wi/Fi – AKA radiation. Lets get this figured out, and figure out if this is why the Bee Colonies have been collapsing as well.
