High Exposure to Radiofrequency Radiation Linked to Tumor Activity

A new study looking at high exposure to radiofrequency (RF) radiation in rats showed that it produced tumors in tissues surrounding male rats’ hearts. While researchers said the results didn’t apply to the females, they did mention to the National Institutes of Health that they found “statistically significant increases” of tumors in other organs of the cancer-afflicted rats “at one or more of the exposure levels studied, including the brain, prostate gland, pituitary gland, adrenal gland, liver and pancreas.” In the same breath, they quickly discounted their report by saying they weren’t sure if these cancers were directly linked to the radiation. They also said you shouldn’t immediately connect their study to humans, since it involved frequencies “much greater” that what you’d get with a cell phone.

What’s most interesting here is that major media like Forbes and Medpage Today immediately picked up on the scientists’ comments not to assume their findings applied to humans and ignored the real findings — that high exposure to radiofrequency caused cancer in rats. In fact, Medpage Today even ran with the headline “Cell Phone Radiation Unlikely to Cause Cancer” — which is NOT what this study found. As I pointed out, the study was announced because it DID find a relation between “high” radiofrequency exposure and cancer —something I’ve discussed numerous times, specifically when it comes to peroxynitrates.

Other studies have already linked exposure to peroxynitrites from low-frequency microwave radiation emitted from cellphones and Wi-Fi networks with chronic diseases such as heart disease, obesity and inflammatory bowel disease, so I believe it’s simply unconscionable that major media would try to twist the most current study in such a way as to lead the public to believe there’s nothing to worry about when it comes to cellphone radiation.

The relative rarity of brain cancer may lead you to believe that your cellphone is safe. However, the primary pathology behind cellphone damage is not related specifically to brain tumors, or even to cancer. Instead, the real danger lies in damage from the reactive nitrogen species peroxynitrites. Increased peroxynitrites from cellphone exposure will damage your mitochondria. One study even found that existing public safety limits on RF exposure are inadequate to protect public health, and an expert said it will take generations to determine the full environmental and biological impact it has made.

So what can you do in the meantime, when so many of us are “married” to our cellphones? Keep your phone in airplane mode when you’re not using it. It won’t eliminate your exposure, but it will radically reduce it. I carry my phone with me on my beach walks and in addition to being in airplane mode I put it in a faraday bag that stops virtually all radiation. Also, never sleep with your phone. Then, when you do use it, always put it on speaker and away from your body.
