Scientists call for cell phone tests to ‘get real’, claiming simulated results grossly misleading

Lab experiments cloud reality: Three scientists observe the truth using real-life mobile phone radiation exposures.

Important information is often overlooked by ordinary people because facts, as Al Gore observed, are “inconvenient truths” or they run counter to social practice or company profits.

A scientific review article by three embattled scientists published by a little-known but reputable scientific publisher is a case in point. The paper, Real versus Simulated Mobile Phone Exposures in Experimental Studies1, by Dr. Dimitris J. Panagopoulos, Assoc. Prof. Olle Johansson and Dr. George L. Carlo is published by Hindawi Publishing Corp.2 based in Cairo, also publisher of the BioMed Research International journal.

1976 Naval Medical Research Report - 3700 References on the Biological Effects of Microwave Radiation

1976 Naval Medical Research Report - 3700 References on the Biological Effects of Microwave Radiation

Bibliography of reported biological phenomena (‘effects’} and clinical manifestations attributed to microwave and radio-frequency radiation: compilation and integration of report and seven supplements

More than 3700 references on the biological responses to radio frequency and microwave radiation, published up to May 1976, are included in this bibliography of the world literature. Particular attention has been paid to the effects of non-ionizing radiation on man at these frequencies. The citations are arranged alphabetically by author (where possible), and contain as much in- formation as possible so as to assure effective retrieval of the original documents. Soviet and East European literature is included in detail.

Cancer Expert Declares Cell Phone and Wireless Radiation as Carcinogenic to Humans

"An expert cancer researcher and advisor to the World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer (WHO/IARC) has issued his scientific opinion that radiofrequency (RF) radiation from any source – such as the signals emitted by cell phones, other wireless and cordless and sensor devices, and wireless networks – fully meets criteria to be classified as a “Group 1 carcinogenic to humans” agent, based on scientific evidence associating RF exposure to cancer development and cancer promotion.

“The evidence indicating wireless is carcinogenic has increased and can no longer be ignored,” stated Dr. Anthony B. Miller "

Toename schildklierkanker in Noorse landen - link met smartphones

Blogpost Lennart Hardell, 13/12/2016 - "The incidence of thyroid cancer is increasing in many countries, especially the papillary type that is the most radiosensitive type. We used the Swedish Cancer Register and NORDCAN to study the incidence of thyroid cancer during 1970-2013 using joinpoint regression analysis. The incidence increased during the whole study period in both men and women. Based on NORDCAN data, there was a statistically significant increase in the incidence of thyroid cancer in the Nordic countries during the same time period."

Karl Hecht: Health Implications of Long-term Exposure to Electrosmog (English edition 2016)

Nieuw wetenschappelijk rapport/brochure van het Duitse Kompetenz Initiative, naar het Engels vertaald. Gebaseerd op een review van 878 Russische studies (1960-1997) naar de gezondheidseffecten van EM straling.

Karl Hecht: Health Implications of Long-term Exposure to Electrosmog (English edition 2016)

"The review findings by Hecht—which disappeared into the government archives as soon as they had been submitted and which we are now making available to the public in this brochure in its most comprehensive form to date—are based on the assessment of 878 Russian studies between 1960 and 1997. To pretend as if there were no connection between microwave technologies from the past and those from today is like burying one's head in the sand. This tactic is well illustrated by the current politics regarding radar victims and the increasing group of persons with electromagnetic hypersensitivity."

Baanbrekend onderzoek Amerikaanse overheid bevestigt kankerrisico door gsm

cellheadPersbericht Beperk de Straling (PDF):

Een nieuwe studie van de Amerikaanse overheid zal een grote impact hebben op het reeds lang bestaande debat over de link tussen gsm-straling en kanker. De internationale pers berichtte hier reeds uitgebreid over (overzicht als PDF).

Op 26 mei 2016 werden de resultaten vrijgegeven van een grootschalige studie uitgevoerd binnen het 'National Toxicology Program' (NTP), een gerenommeerd onderzoeksinstituut verbonden aan het Amerikaanse ministerie van gezondheid. De studie is één van meest diepgaande die tot op heden plaatsvond.

2.500 ratten werden over een periode van 2 jaar al dan niet gedurende bepaalde periodes aan gsm-straling blootgesteld.

De ratten blootgesteld aan straling, bleken hogere ratio's te hebben van twee specifieke types zeldzame kankers: glioma's (tumoren van de gliacellen in de hersenen) en maligne schwannoma van het hart  (tumoren van de Schwanncellen, die ook kunnen voorkomen op de gehoorszenuw).

Low-Intensity Microwave Radiation Alters Neurotransmitters in the Rat Brain

 

PubMed - "The increasing use of wireless communication devices has raised major concerns towards deleterious effects of microwave radiation on human health. The aim of the study was to demonstrate the effect of low-intensity microwave radiation on levels of monoamine neurotransmitters and gene expression of their key regulating enzymes in brain of Fischer rats."

 

"In conclusion, the results indicate that low-intensity microwave radiation may cause learning and memory disturbances by altering levels of brain monoamine neurotransmitters at mRNA and protein levels."

Blootstelling bij vele experimenten onrealistisch laag - lokale SAR-waarden in weefsel veel hoger dan theoretisch aangenomen tot nu toe

 

Blogpost van Prof.  Dariusz Leszczynski die uitlegt dat de blootstelling bij vele experimenten tot nu toe onrealistisch laag was onder druk van industriewetenschappers (o.a. Nokia), te laag om effecten te vinden. Men kreeg pas financiering voor studies wanneer de blootstelling onrealistisch laag was (minder dan 2,0 SAR). De lokale blootstelling (SAR-waarden) in weefsels bij een reële (real life) blootstelling aan gsm-straling blijkt echter veel hoger dan theoretisch aangenomen tot nu toe.

 

"The general trend of exposing cells at 2.0 SAR was strongly advocated and propagated by the scientists from the telecom industry. It was a normal occurrence at the scientific meetings that whenever scientist reported biological effects at SAR over 2.0, the above mentioned industry scientists jumped up to the microphone to condemn and to discredit the results. The argument was always the same – safety standards are set at 2.0 and examining effects above it is futile. Furthermore, any study with SAR above 2.0 was suggested to be caused by thermal effect. It meant, according to these industry scientists that the obtained biological data were irrelevant.
