Health Canada Admits Studies on Cell Phones Convincing Enough to Promote Limited Use
Auteur: Dr. Mercola
Health Canada is proposing to adopt a precautionary approach and guidelines for limited cell phone use.
Canadians are being encouraged to limit cell phone call length and to text message or use a hands-free device whenever possible.
Other countries that have already done so to some degree or another include Russia, the UK, Israel, Belgium, Germany, India, Finland and France.
In May of 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO)/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) issued a report admitting cell phones might cause cancer, classifying radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” (Class 2B).
Researchers have identified numerous mechanisms of harm, which explain how electromagnetic fields impact your cells and damages your DNA.
A study by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) published in JAMA earlier this year, led by leading brain imaging researcher Nora Volkow, found conclusive evidence of altered brain activity after just 50 minutes of cell phone exposure. This study, along with others, decimates the old notion that non-ionizing (non-thermal) radiation is incapable of having a biological effect.
An important new analysis from Sweden, just published in Neurology & Neurophysiology, projects a very large increase in brain cancer incidence resulting from widespread mobile phone use beginning in approximately 15 years. The projections are based on well-established known effects of this radiation on DNA:that mobile phone use decreases the efficiency of the repair of mutated DNA and that mobile phone use increases the rate of DNA mutations.
