Review: Cell and cordless phone radiation probable human carcinogen
16 mei 2013
De Wereldgezondheidsorganisatie categoriseerde elektromagnetische straling van gsm's en andere draadloze apparaten als 'potentieel kankerverwekkend'. In een overzichtsstudie argumenteren verschillende wetenschappers nu dat er genoeg bewijzen zijn om deze straling te categoriseren als 'waarschijnlijk kankerverwekkend' en dat hersentumoren slechts de top van de ijsberg zijn.
Brain Diseases Affecting More People and Starting Earlier Than Ever Before
13 mei 2013
Science Daily - Professor Colin Pritchard's latest research published in journal Public Health has found that the sharp rise of dementia and other neurological deaths in people under 74 cannot be put down to the fact that we are living longer. The rise is because a higher proportion of old people are being affected by such conditions -- and what is really alarming, it is starting earlier and affecting people under 55 years.
Professor Pritchard of Bournemouth University says: "These statistics are about real people and families, and we need to recognise that there is an 'epidemic' that clearly is influenced by environmental and societal changes."
Cell Phone Use, Acoustic Neuroma and Cancer of the Pituitary Gland
11 mei 2013
prlog.org press release - Cell phone use was associated with increased risk of two types of brain tumors in a new study of 790,000 women.
May 10, 2013 - Cell phone use was associated with increased risk of acoustic neuroma and cancer of the pituitary gland in a prospective study of more than 790,000 women in the United Kingdom. (1) Acoustic neuroma is a rare, non-malignant tumor that develops on the main nerve leading from the inner ear to the brain. The pituitary gland is an organ that produces hormones which regulate important functions of the body and is located in the middle of the base of the brain.
Women who used cell phones for ten or more years were two-and- a-half times more likely to develop an acoustic neuroma. Their risk of acoustic neuroma increased with the number of years they used cell phones.
"Exposure to the magnetic field stimulated cerebellar uptake of fluorodeoxyglucose compared to the sham exposure in the same animals. The activated region was located in the posterior central cerebellum. The results indicated that magnetosensory evoked potentials in rats were associated with increased glucose utilization in the cerebellum, thereby supporting earlier evidence that electromagnetic field transduction occurred in the brain."
"The reports dealing with the effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) on brain electrical activity have been inconsistent. We suspected that the use of linear methods and models accounted for some of the variability, and we explored the issue by using a novel approach to study the effects of EMFs on the electroencephalogram (EEG) from rabbits. (...) We conclude that EMF transduction resulting in changes in brain electrical activity could be demonstrated consistently using a nonlinear method of analysis."
