5 Billion Mobile Phone Users in the World: How Many Users Are Exposing Themselves to Levels of Microwave Radiation Beyond Regulatory Standards?

“While the Swiss are very disappointed in the new European directive on roaming, there has been no attention accorded to the evolution of the "Phonegate" scandal, revealing that 9 out of 10 mobile phones exceed the legal standards of radiation set by the European Union when used in contact with the body. These same norms govern Switzerland. This scandal, which echoes "Dieselgate" in terms of the failure of international monitoring protocols, risks to be even more serious.” - Extract from "Phonegate" - Readers' Mail, Tribune de Genève, 13 July 2017

“PhoneGate… is more about the massive discrepancy between how phones are tested and how they are actually used in real life. In other words, the cell phone makers aren’t deceiving the regulators. Instead, the regulators allow the cell phone makers to deceive the public, while still complying with the law.”

“As a physician, I am deeply concerned about what this means for our health and especially the health of our children.” 
- Dr. Marc Arazi, French physician who launched the alert on Phonegate

The Swiss are more concerned about the high cost of phone calls made when in other European countries than they are about the health consequences of exposure to mobile phone radiation. How many of these 5 billion persons are aware of the health effects of microwave radiation emitted by these devices? How many people know that there are warnings in cell phones manuals or in the cell phone itself that regulatory radiation standards may be exceeded when the phone is held against the body? How many people carry the phone in the pocket or tucked in the bra, or use it glued to the ear for long phone conversations?

Despite Health Risks, Lawmakers Not Curbing Cell Phone Usage (2011 Article)

Several members of Congress in May spoke out when the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) labeled the radiofrequency fields generated by mobile phones as possibly carcinogenic to humans... 

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who is focused on other issues, said, "I'm concerned about a lot of things but not about that.”

Phonegate*: Inexcusable One-Year Delay in Release of French Government Phone Test Data

Phonegate*: Inexcusable one-year delay in release of French government phone test data
Environmental Health Trust, 17 July 2017

Citizens demand details of phone tests for children and adults

Press release by Dr. Marc Arazi, Monday 17 July 2017
Online link

After 2017 released data of the French government showed excessive levels of microwave radiation from mobile phones, Gilles Brégant, Director-General of the French National Frequencies Agency (ANFR) promised to release additional test details.


Last year, the French National Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES) published a report entitled, “Exposure to Radiofrequencies and Child Health,” showing the most phones failed to meet current standards for radiation and pledging to release test methods and results. By not keeping its commitment and releasing these details a year later, ANFR is abrogating its duty to public health and the environment. While secondary insurers do not cover phone manufacturers for health damages, a new European Directive (Dir 2014/53/UE) protects the uninsurable industry from possible legal actions (article 42).

Because of this agency inaction, French physician Marc Arazi is appealing directly to the Director-General of ANFR as well as to Nicolas Hulot, Minister for the Ecological Transition, and Agnès Buzyn, Minister for Health.

Celebrities, Cell Phones, and Brain Tumors

Read what Australian neurosurgeon Gautam (Vini) Khurana says about brain tumor incidence and then the article which follows about a 17-year-old girl who spent hours talking on her mobile phone each day and died from a malignant brain tumor.  Each and every one of us has a responsibility to warn about potential risks of heavy cell phone use, especially parents, in order to protect their young children. 





Statement from Australian neurosurgeon Gautam (Vini) Khurana:
WEEP News, 28 May 2013

“I believe that in the present decade, a significant increase in primary brain tumor incidence will be detected internationally. The first indication of this phenomenon may be the plethora of high-profile individuals diagnosed with primary brain tumors in the last few to several years: Senator Ted Kennedy, professional golfer Seve Ballesteros, Cable television host Eleanor Mondale, director and producer Dan Curtis, broadcaster Stan Zemanek, high profile attorney Johnnie Cochran, celebrated pilot Dennis E. Fitch, inventor Robert Moog, political pundit Robert Novak, US Senator Arlen Specter, renowned cancer surgeon Professor Chris O’Brien, baseball pro Gary Carter, journalist David Shaw, Stock broker Rene Rivkin, actress Elizabeth Taylor, actor Mark Ruffalo, actor and musician Martin Kemp, singer Sheryl Crow, rock star Doc Neeson, corporate leader Holly Ann Norwick (partner of Chris Gardner, who was played by Will Smith in film The Pursuit of Happyness), actor / model Rona Newton-John (sister of singer and Grease star Olivia Newton-John), actress Valerie Harper (star of the Mary Tyler Moore Show) . . .

Abstract

In May 2011 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) evaluated cancer risks from radiofrequency (RF) radiation. Human epidemiological studies gave evidence of increased risk for glioma and acoustic neuroma. RF radiation was classified as Group 2B, a possible human carcinogen. Further epidemiological, animal and mechanistic studies have strengthened the association. In spite of this, in most countries little or nothing has been done to reduce exposure and educate people on health hazards from RF radiation. On the contrary ambient levels have increased. In 2014 the WHO launched a draft of a Monograph on RF fields and health for public comments. It turned out that five of the six members of the Core Group in charge of the draft are affiliated with International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), an industry loyal NGO, and thus have a serious conflict of interest. Just as by ICNIRP, evaluation of non-thermal biological effects from RF radiation are dismissed as scientific evidence of adverse health effects in the Monograph. This has provoked many comments sent to the WHO. However, at a meeting on March 3, 2017 at the WHO Geneva office it was stated that the WHO has no intention to change the Core Group.

Arizona Sen. John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee with a well-known maverick streak that often vexes his GOP colleagues, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, his office said in a statement Wednesday.

The 80-year-old lawmaker has glioblastoma, an aggressive cancer, according to doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, where McCain had a blood clot removed from above his left eye last Friday.

"Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot," his office said in a statement.

According to the American Brain Tumor Association, more than 12,000 people a year are diagnosed with glioblastoma, a particularly aggressive type of tumor. The American Cancer Society puts the five-year survival rate for patients over 55 at about 4 percent.

It's the same type of tumor that struck McCain's close Democratic colleague in legislative battles, the late Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts.

The tumor digs tentacle-like roots into normal brain tissue. Patients fare best when surgeons can cut out all the visible tumor, which happened with McCain's tumor, according to his office. That isn't a cure; cancerous cells that aren't visible still tend to lurk, the reason McCain's doctors are considering further treatment, including chemotherapy and radiation.

Although these people are sick, their illness is difficult to diagnose, and it’s even harder to convince others that it actually exists. Their symptoms include cluster headaches, nausea, chronic fatigue, a burning sensation on the skin, and a metallic taste in the mouth. Sufferers claim the cause is wireless technology. There’s no known cure, and the only way to alleviate the symptoms seems to be to distance themselves from electronic devices and the influence of omnipresent wireless networks.
