Wireless Radiation Safety in 2014: The Year in Review
I just posted to the Electromagnetic Radiation Safety website a summary of key developments regarding wireless radiation safety in the past year.
Here is an excerpt:
French researchers found almost a 3-fold increase in brain cancer with 896 or more hours of lifetime cell phone use. Swedish researchers found a 2-fold increase in brain cancer with 1,486 or more hours of cell phone use and a 3-fold risk with 25 or more years of cell and cordless phone use.
These studies add to the evidence of increased brain cancer risk found among heavier cell phone users in the 13-nation Interphone study published in 2010. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization (WHO) relied heavily on the Interphone Study and earlier research by the Swedish researchers to declare radio frequency radiation “possibly carcinogenic to humans” in 2011.
A news report on the Swedish study by Reuters Health stimulated global media coverage””over 260 news articles published in 18 languages in 50 countries”” demonstrating worldwide concern about the carcinogenicity of cell phone radiation.
The article includes links to the ten most popular wireless radiation news releases distributed this year through PRLog, a press release distribution website, and the ten most popular articles posted on the EMR Safety website. In 2014, the news releases received over 65,000 page views, and the website received 130,000 page views from visitors in more than 100 countries.
