Dr.Weeks’ Comment: More and more research (if it is independent and not industry sponsored !!) are concluding that cell phone use, when phones are up against the head, cause cancer. We recommend 3 things if you are planning to use cell phones:
1) Keep them TURNED OFF and use them like an answering service, receptionist whereby you turn them on and check them every 15 minutes.
2) Use speaker phone setting as much as possible.
3) For private calls, use BlueTube headsets which are air conduction andallow no wire to connect the phone to your head – wires conduct electricity and air tubes do not.

Cellphones Cause Brain Tumors, Says New Report by International EMF Collaborative
August 25, 2009. A new report, “Cellphones and Brain Tumors: 15 Reasons for Concern, Science, Spin and the Truth Behind Interphone,” was released today by a collaborative of international EMF activists. Groups affiliated with the report include Powerwatch and the Radiation Research Trust in the U.K., and in the U.S.,The EMR Policy Institute, ElectromagneticHealth.org and The Peoples Initiative Foundation.

The exposé discusses research on cellphones and brain tumors and concludes:
· There is a risk of brain tumors from cellphone use;
· Telecom funded studies underestimate the risk of brain tumors, and;
· Children have larger risks than adults for brain tumors.
This report, sent to government leaders and media today, details eleven design flaws of the 13-country, Telecom-funded Interphone study.
The Interphone study, begun in 1999, was intended to determine the risks of brain tumors, but its full publication has been held up for years.
Components of this study published to date reveal what the authors call a ‘systemic-skew’, greatly underestimating brain tumor risk.
The design flaws include categorizing subjects who used portable phones (which emit the same microwave radiation as cellphones,) as ‘unexposed’; exclusion of many types of brain tumors; exclusion of people who had died, or were too ill to be interviewed, as a consequence of their brain tumor; and exclusion of children and young adults, who are more vulnerable.
Lloyd Morgan, lead author and member of the Bioelectromagnetics Society says, “Exposure to cellphone radiation is the largest human health
experiment ever undertaken, without informed consent, and has some 4 billion participants enrolled. Science has shown increased risk of
brain tumors from use of cellphones, as well as increased risk of eye cancer, salivary gland tumors, testicular cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
and leukemia. The public must be informed.”
International scientists endorsing “Cellphones and Brain Tumors: 15 Reasons for Concern”include Ronald B. Herberman, MD, Director Emeritus,
University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute; David Carpenter, MD, Director, Institute for Health and the Environment, University at Albany; Martin
Blank, PhD, Associate Professor of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics, Columbia University;Professor Yury Grigoriev, Chairman of Russian
National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, and many others.
