Could radiation exposure from other wireless technology already be contributing to increasing cancer rates?
In general, cancer rates are rising, especially amongst the young. Studies show that secondary exposure to mobile phones, their masts, and wireless technology are linked to a range of cancers, not just those in the head and neck area. Read more about health effects...
This could be contributing to the rise in cancers, especially amongst the young. The proportion of childhood cancer deaths from brain and spinal tumours has nearly doubled in the last 25 years.
Brain tumours now account for more deaths among children and those under 40 than any other cancer. This is despite significant under-counting of brain tumours.
There are, of course, a range of complex causes contributing to cancer rates but it seems to us that the rise exposures to microwave radiation since the expansion of mobile phone and wireless technology may be a contributing factor.
We do not yet know how the generation of children growing up now, with exponentially higher exposures from birth and through childhood will be affected in later years but maybe recent increases in cancers, especially head and neck cancers, may give a hint as to future increases.
Why don't cancer charities warn us about this risk?...
