Wireless devices might be seeding 250,000 avoidable brain tumors per year

This excerpt is taken straight from the article:

Row over cancer risk of mobiles

AUSTRALIAN brain surgeon Charlie Teo is one of 16 world experts who have accused a global newspaper of publishing "technical errors and misleading statements" in an article that rubbished the idea mobile phones cause cancer.   

In an open letter, the experts, who work in Europe, the US and Australia and have qualifications in fields such as cancer medicine, public health, statistics and electromagnetism, said the article published in The Economist "fails to provide critical information about this important public health challenge", and demanded that the journal print a correction.

The experts wrote that history was "replete with failures to control highly profitable carcinogenic substances, ranging from tobacco to asbestos, until proof of harm became irrefutable", and suggested on a conservative analysis that mobile phones and other wireless radiation might be seeding 250,000 avoidable brain tumours every year.

That is not surprising to anyone who has actually studied the information and history of the unchecked proliferation of wireless devices. For those who want to know about why wireless has been allowed to grow unabated if it is dangerous, please read Arthur Firstenberg's "Silent Wireless Spring." Thanks.

This is one of the few topics I've never written about--have not researched it, and know no one passionate about it. Anyway, nice to see you blogging again.
