In 2011 the World Health Organization classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B). This was based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer associated with wireless phone use. You might want to hold all your calls whilst you read on!
What was the result of this global WHO announcement? The answer is fascinating! For example, did you know that Israel went off and did its own study? As a result of their study, all smartphones sold in Israel are meant to come with a ‘may increase risk of cancer’ warning. It wasn’t just Israel, China also did their own study. As a result of that study, it is now mandatory in China for pregnant women to wear an EMF blocking apron to protect their unborn child from smartphone, tablet and WIFI radiation. All smartphones sold in the USA now come with a disclaimer buried in the small print. This disclaimer instructs you to never have your mobile device in contact with your body - at any time! How many of us read that mind bomb?
Does this mean we are looking at the end of the smartphone era? Does death by WIFI mean the death of WIFI? Nope! Not in a month of Sundays to quote Granny. Much like cigarettes were the deadly addiction of the 1950’s, smartphones and tablets are our generations foreboding habit.
Here’s the technical stuff. It turns out that the non-ironizing radiation used for smart meters, phones, tablets and WIFI routers may be causing damage to your body’s cells and DNA. According to the latest reports (covered by Dr Devra Davis) it’s suggested that this damage can lead to cancer, fertility issues and birth defects. You might at this stage in the article be asking: “what’s the solution”? Here’s the good news. The most recent reports lead us to believe that it’s the irregular EMF pulses that are the root of the problem. A fix might be as simple as finding a repetitive pulse frequency that is nonharmful to humans. However, many researchers strongly recommend that until a safe RF has been established, it is worth swapping the office WIFI for a fibreoptic network. Also, if you are going to use a phone then it’s probably best to put it on speaker or use a headset.
It’s predicted that we will not start seeing large scale numbers of people suffering with mobile phone induced brain cancer for another 20 years. This is because it can take that long for the damaged DNA to start causing these problems. It’s important to stress that the big players in the Telecoms industry have all started to put disclaimers in our contracts, I’m sure this has been done to warn us of the danger and not to help counteract the possibility of future law suits. One thing is for sure, with the heavy investment into WIFI G5 technologies, these ‘possibly’ deadly smart devices are around for the foreseeable future.
