New Research firmly establishes Cell phone Radiation as a carcinogen and a public health hazard
Has this new study finally stripped ICNIRP standards of 1998 and proven its absurdity
A new study by expert published by Igor Yakymenko&EvgeniySidorik (Institute of experimental pathology, oncology and radiobiology, Kiev, Ukraine); Diane Henshel (School of public and environmental affairs, Indiana university, Bloomington, IN, US) and SergiyKyrylenko (Department of structural and functional biology, university of Campinas, Campinas, Brazil) published in the editorial “Low Intensity radiofrequency radiation: a new oxidant for living cells” in the scientific journal “Oxidants and Antioxidants in Medical Science” challenges all the current theories of the harmlessness of cellphone radiation. The study puts the harmful effects of cell phone radiation, beyond the debate and doubt, firmly as a health hazard.
The editorial challenges the absurdity of ICNIRP standards and goes on to prove that cell phone radiation, hitherto describe as non-ionizing radiation can cause oxidate stresses induce profound mutagenic effects in living cells – i.e it causes systemic imbalances in the oxidant and non-oxidant constituents of the cell causing damage to cell DNA.
Quoting the editorial “…significant oxidative stress (causes)… overproduction of ROS (~Reactive oxidant species), lipid peroxidation/increased concentrations of malondialdehyde, protein peroxidation, increased concentrations of nitric oxide (NO) and changes in the activity of antioxidant enzymes”.
More importantly, these adverse reactions, have been proven to be “significantly activated just after a few minutes of exposure to low intensity radiation”. “Radiation as low as 0.1 µW/cm2 intensity of radio frequency radiation and absorbed energy (specific absorption rate, SAR) of 0.3 µW/kg were demonstrated to be effective in inducing significant oxidative stress in living cells”, the study quoted.
As a critic to the current absurdity of the ICNIRP norms, the editorial and the study says that “This observation is particularly important as the modern international safety limits on RFR exposure are based solely on the thermal effects of the radiation and only restrict RFR intensity to 450-1000 µW/cm2 and SAR to 2 W/kg”.
The study also alludes to a total of 80 epidemiology studies, 92.5% of which attribute increased instances of tumors of brain and parotid, neuromas, seminomas, melanomas and lymphomas to heavy cell phone usage and users. The study also reports an increase in tumor instances in people living in the vicinity of a cell phone tower. The study also mentions electro-hypersensitivity as a radiation exposure related medical condition, with subjects suffering from skin itching, smarting, pain and heat sensations and coronary or nervous disorders after exposure to monitors, cell phones and other electro-magnetic devices. The study sounds an alarm on the malady of hypersensitivity quoting that “This malady is growing continuously: starting from 0.06% of the total population in 1985 this category now includes as much as 9-11% of the European population.“
Its time the so called industry experts move on from the obsolete ICNIRP standards formed in 1998 to a new set of standards globally. It is time we acknowledge electro Magnetic Radiation as a class 2A carcinogen as suggested by Dr. Anthony Miller. Its time to look beyond the debate and industry bottonmlines and pay attention to public health.
