Mobile Phone Companies Come Out Swinging At WHO Cancer Report
June 2. 2011
Telecommunications manufacturers upset with the World Health Organization's findings released yesterday, which states there is a link between cancer and mobile phones, are clinging to a two page report released by the National Cancer Institute, proclaiming there is no spike in brain cancer cases in America (http://www.cancer.gov/aboutnci/servingpeople/snapshots/brain.pdf).
This is very convenient considering many global authorities, doctors and scientists, have released a wide array of reports, stating there has been and continues to be, a very noticeable increase in cancer rates all over the world. How is it there has been well-documented and heavily publicized data (see below), illustrating a discernible spike in breast, liver, kidney, bowel and skin cancer, to name a few, yet mysteriously, brain cancer, an illness that affects such a sensitive, massive and vital organ, has allegedly shown no change in data in America, according to the National Cancer Institute.
There is something amiss concerning components of the National Cancer Institute's report. Cancer, a disease that can so permeate the body and metastasize (spread), has seen rising rates in every major organ, but mysteriously, according to the aforementioned report, there has been no increase in brain cancer rates. I am of the belief, for whatever reason, everyone is not being counted in the National Cancer Institute's report.
In light of the fact, on a government and corporate level, officials were exposed for colluding to mislead the public on the true ill effects of cigarettes and separately climate change, I question some of the findings contained in the National Cancer Institute's report, as it does not square with worldwide reports and disease developments.
Ironically, this same National Cancer Institute report that mobile phone manufacturers are touting, does acknowledge there is an increase in brain cancer cases among children in America, which mainstream outlets batting for the mobile phone companies, glossed over yesterday.
I wrote about brain cancer and kids two days ago (World Health Organization: Mobile Phones Promote Cancer), in relation to mobile phone usage and the risk it poses for said demographic. I also wrote about cancer, kids and mobile phones in 2005 on the Sound Off Column site.
The Sound Off Column article, was prompted by two of my friends' children developing strange forms of brain cancer. The only thing I found they had in common was mobile phone usage, as some young girls love to talk to each other via this method. One of the girls nearly died. The brain tumor was so rare and unlike anything local doctors had seen, she was sent to a specialist in another state and given a 10% chance of surviving the surgery.
Her condition was so dire, they administered last rites to the preteen before the operation to remove the abnormal growth in the brain of a beautiful, brilliant, normal A student. By the grace of God, she did survive the surgery and has lived another decade thus far. She is now 21 and attending a top university.
The National Cancer Institute also acknowledges, "Leukemias and cancers of the brain and central nervous system account for more than half of childhood cancers." The National Cancer Institute conceded in writing, they do not know why there is a spike in brain cancer among kids, but mobile phones are an avenue they should pursue in future studies.
I am of the belief, as are others, too many kids have mobile phones. As I wrote in the aforementioned article years ago, companies advertise family plans that allow individuals to cheaply purchase a phone for every member of the family, including children. It has become a status symbol among kids and you, as you are deemed uncool if you do not have a mobile phone. The more kids use mobile phones, the greater the risk to their developing bodies.
Some doctors believe the fact that there are consumers that text more and use the speaker phone and ear pieces, rather than holding the unit to the ear/head, directly depositing radiation into the brain in closer proximity to the organ, they are not as negatively impacted. However, the radiation is still there, just at a further distance. Still, very few would argue there is no risk in directly depositing radiation into your brain on a constant basis. How can that be a good thing, given what we know about radiation.
There is so much radiation around us in our modern world (Cancer Is Advancing). Mobile phones, wireless internet, satellite cable TV, medical imaging and airport security (Scientists: TSA Airport Radiation Doses Are Inaccurate). Not to mention, some of the items going into our food to give it a picturesque appearance and reduce caloric content, is toxic over time.
Leukemias and cancers of the brain and central nervous system account for more than half of childhood cancers (see Question 1). The causes of childhood cancers are largely unknown (see Question 4). The National Cancer Institute is funding studies examining the causes of and the most effective treatments for childhood cancers (see Question 6).
Worldwide Cancer Rates on the Rise
January 2, 2009 - Cancer is predicted to rise worldwide mainly due to the increase of tobacco use and more “Westernized” habits in developing countries. By the year 2030 cancer is expected to more than double and in 2010 it is predicted to be the world’s largest killer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer has completed a report that examines the impact this increase will have on the entire globe.
The report’s findings are disturbing and include an increase in cancer cases to 27 million and an increase in cancer deaths to 17 million. China, Russia and India are expected to have the highest rate of increase of cancer incidence and deaths and the overall global increase is expected to be 1% per year. The report also points to tobacco use and obesity as the leading causes of cancer in poorer countries in the years to come.
Study Predicts Huge Increase in Cancer Ahead
Monday, May 04, 2009 by: Sherry Baker, Health Sciences Editor - (NaturalNews) Just when we're all saturated with alarming news about a pending flu epidemic, new research from the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center concludes a virtual epidemic of an even more dreaded disease -- cancer -- is headed our way. In fact, the scientists say over the next two decades, the number of new cancer cases diagnosed each year in the U.S. will increase by 45 percent. This dramatic spike in incidence is expected to especially hit the growing older Baby Boomers and non-white populations, with an amazing 100 percent increase in cancer expected for minorities.
Ohio can’t explain cancer spike
Published: September 29, 2010 3:00 a.m. - FREMONT, Ohio – A study looking at whether radiation from homes, schools and industrial sites was the source of child cancer cases in northern Ohio didn’t turn up any answers, state health officials said.
Asia's cancer rates to spike by 2020
Posted 4/21/2007 5:04 AM - SINGAPORE — The number of cancer cases in Asia is set to rise dramatically by 2020 due largely to longer life spans and changing lifestyles, threatening a health crisis as poorer countries in the region struggle to afford care.
Colon Cancer Spike Among Young Adults Alarming - Cancer Hits People In Prime Of Life
UPDATED: 6:44 am EDT November 1, 2010 - ...Over the last two decades, even though the overall incidence of colon cancer has dropped, the number of cases diagnosed in people under the age of 50 – even under the age of 40 – has jumped dramatically.
Diagnoses in people under 50 has risen by 40 percent since the 1980s. The number of rectal cancers diagnosed in people under 50 has increased 63 percent since that time, according to studies funded by the National Cancer Institute. “There's a trend, and why that trend is there, nobody knows,” said Dr. David Ryan of the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center.
Global rise in breast cancer due to 'Western lifestyles'
Thursday, 24 January 2008 - Of all the exports from our modern world, breast cancer ranks as among the most dubious. Once thought to be a disease of the rich, it is now a global epidemic. The rise of the cancer in Europe and America – cases have jumped 80 per cent in the UK since the 1970s – is being mirrored across the world. And scientists say increasing prosperity and the "Westernisation" of traditional lifestyles is to blame.
Liver cancer on the rise, CDC says
A new study out Thursday from the Centers for Disease Control finds the most common form of liver cancer is on the rise. According to the May 5th Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, rates of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the United States increased from 2.7 cases per 100,000 people in 2001 to 3.2 cases per 100,000 people in 2006. The report also points out that untreated hepatitis B and hepatitis C infections are responsible for about 78 percent of global HCC cases. Liver cancer is much more common in developing countries than in the United States. Worldwide, it is the third leading cause of cancer deaths. In the U.S., it's the eighth leading cause.
AN ARTICLE CLAIMING MOBILE PHONES ARE PERFECTLY SAFE, WHICH IS QUESTIONABLE:
Study Finds Cellphones May Cause Cancer, but Brain Cancers Have Not Spiked
June 1, 2011 - A study concluded there is a possible link between cell phone use and cancer. Though a World Health Organization study concluded cell phones may cause cancer, some are wondering why, if their truly is a link, there not been a significant worldwide increase in brain cancers. The World Health Organization (WHO), whose International Agency for Research on Cancer announced the results of its year-long study Tuesday, estimates that there are 5 billion cell phone users globally, representing nearly three-quarters of the world's population.
However, the incidence and mortality rate of brain and central nervous system cancers has remained virtually flat since 1987, according to data from the National Cancer Institute. The most compelling evidence cited by the WHO is a multi-country study that found people who used cell phones most often, an average of 30 minutes per day over 10 years, had a 40 percent higher risk for a rare brain tumor called a glioma.
