go back to nature...

cancer is more prevalent, sure, it might even be radio's fault, then again it might not, so in short, different people accept different standards of proof and will act accordingly.

toss your phone and think for one second how much radio exposure you'll get from a cell tower, compared to your own phone. you want to focus on cellphones? why not ban TV? positive effects are almost guaranteed from abolishing the lobotomy box, aren't they?

fear is a miserable advisor, the entire notion that we will all die roughly three decades after the introduction of GSM is not based on known fact. if it's so lethal, how come we aren't seeing brain tumor rates skyrocket already? at least more susceptible individuals would lead the trend by now, because they surely aren't going to get sick the same day, are they?

the part about radar guns and tumors got me interested, though, because traffic radar is a joke compared to the aircraft related version.

no no, Going back to nature isn't an option. We just have to advance the technology we have to be safer.

Look back to when X-Rays and Radioactive elements got into the public marketplace. Shoe salesmen were using unshielded x-ray emitters to look at your foot inside the shoe, but they weren't using ANY shielding, and instead of using photo paper to see the result, they looked directly into the x-rays path. Full dose, focused right into the eyes.

People used to take radioactive elements in pill form thinking that it must be doing something good, because of the interesting feeling they get.

We no longer fear x-rays, the technology has advanced to become safer. Nor do we fear barium swallows, we just know more about how and in what quantity to perform it properly and safely.

The same alteration will happen with cell phones and other wireless equipment.

Lets face it, regardless of how bad it is, we really can't function without it anymore.

You could also say people are living a damn site longer in the 20th and 21st centuries than the 18th or 19th centuries. As cancer is prevalent more in older people where genetic material is damaged and goes all funky during mitosis. As it is known that the bodies ability to repair itself when older is diminished, it is reasonable to assume that a side affect of being older is more genetic damage and a higher risk of cancer.

On a positive note, scientists have recently developed a "cure" for cancer involving boosting the patients immune response:

Scientists claim they have cured advanced skin cancer for the first time using the patient's own cells cloned outside the body.

The 52-year-old man involved was free of melanoma two years after treatment.

US researchers, reports the New England Journal of Medicine, took cancer-fighting immune cells, made five billion copies, then put them all back.

Scientists in the UK warned that further trials would need to be done to prove how well the treatment worked.

The body's immune system plays a significant role in the battle against cancer, and doctors have been looking for ways to boost this tumour-killing response.

The 52-year-old man had advanced melanoma which had spread to the lungs and lymph nodes.

Scientists at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle concentrated on a type of immune system cell called a CD4+ T cell.

From a sample of the man's white blood cells, they were able to select CD4+ T cells which had been specifically primed to attack a chemical found on the surface of melanoma cells.

These were then multiplied in the laboratory, and put back in their billions to see if they could mount an effective attack on the tumours.

Two months later, scans showed the tumours had disappeared, and after two years, the man remained disease-free.

Funny they already have blood root paste for melanoma.

Actually the youngens are dying faster then the older counter parts who grew up on hardly any junk. Im sorry to say my friend but when the younger generation are older will be kept on life support and chemicals(pharma drugs) to live longer. Which aint really living long when your immobile.

Just because you never hear about the death rates dont mean it aint happening. Just do a simple google search on the statistics. 20,000 people die of cancer each year. To say only the elderly get cancer is ignorant.

You should try reading abit more Dr Mercola and newstarget.

Tricky ... but none the less a trick.

I just watched "The Hills have Eyes"

Now, that is some serious 2nd hand radiation ...

LOL ....the headseat emits radiation inside your ear, closer to that sleeping tumor.

30min use: heats brain 1.5 degrees.

I disagree with this.
Microwave uses the skin effect.
In which it goes AROUND things instead of through them.
Unless you are living right next to a ray dome tower or you have one on your roof, you will get more radiation problems from the sun than cell phones.
Tv tubes emit more harmful radiation.
Do you ever remember being told to not sit to close to the tv?
LCD's are doing away with this problem however because they just use light.
I believe topics like this are made up to take the scrutiny away from the real reason of increases in all cancers globally since the 50's.
Nuclear weapons testing and cancer virus's in vaccines.
