In April, The Nation wrote an article that also included stories about “fierce debates among scientists.” They compared The Telecom Industry to “Big Tobacco” and “Big Oil” and referred to them as “Big Wireless.” Democracy Now and NPR did follow-ups on the article.
This isn’t the first time someone has compared “Big Wireless” to “Big Tobacco.”
There have been fierce debates for several decades despite government, independent, industry, and military research that has already proven that exposure to cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation as well other sources of Electrical Pollution (Electrosmog) cause harm.
Many scientists already insist that there is enough scientific evidence that proves all sources of Wireless Radiation should be reclassified as Carcinogenic – not a “Possible Carcinogen.”
According to Dr. Anthony Miller, longtime World Health Organization advisor:
…radiofrequency (RF) radiation from any source – such as the signals emitted by cell phones, other wireless and cordless and sensor devices, and wireless networks – fully meets criteria to be classified as a “Group 1 carcinogenic to humans” agent, based on scientific evidence associating RF exposure to cancer development and cancer promotion.
Cell Phone Radiation Associated Brain Tumor Rates Are Rising: Scientific Documentation
Cell Phone Associated Brain Tumor Rates Are Rising
There is evidence that the numbers of people diagnosed with the type of brain tumor linked to cell phone use- glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is increasing as documented in some US and international cancer registries.
Glioblastomas (the type of brain cancer linked to cell phone radiation) and central nervous system tumors are increasing in young Americans, in precisely the areas of the brain that absorb most of the microwave radiation emitted or received by phones.
On this page we are maintaining a list of the scientific documentation of these cancer increases as well as the science linking cell phones to brain cancer. (Scroll down for scientific citations). Some facts:
“Researchers aren’t sure what causes autism, although they suspect environmental risks or triggers.”
Bloomberg must have interviewed the wrong researchers. There is actually government, independent, industry, and military research that has already proven that cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation as well other sources of Electrical Pollution (Electrosmog) are “environmental risks and triggers” for many health issues – behavioral, emotional, mental and physical.

So, the brain tumors supposedly happen because you hold the phone to your head, right? I don’t know too many people who use their phone that way anymore. Young people mostly text these days, instead of talk. The people I see who use their cell phone a lot, use those blue tooth devices instead of holding the phone to their head. So I would think that brain tumors would be decreasing. Now, if there’s such a thing as hand cancer, my teen daughter would probably get it, as she is holding her phone a LOT. But she never puts it to her head.

My brother-in-law died from a massive GBM in July. He was 53.
Strangely, he was a professional baseball player in his youth, and there is a weird high percentage of pro pitchers who die from GBM (he was a pitcher).
But I do wonder about the cell phone connection, but not in his case since he had a cell phone for the same amount of time as, say the rest of us in the family have had, and as far as we know none of us have a GBM. Why some people and not others?
Brain Tumor Rates Are Rising in the US:
Overall, these incidence data do not provide support to the view that cellular phone use causes brain cancer.
