Brain cancer increase? No Surprise.

Dr. Weeks’ Comment: The most common cancer your 15-19 year old will get is a brain cancer called glioblastoma.  But wait, what is any young person doing getting cancer? Well, have they been HOLDING a cell phone much less putting it up against their brain for hours a day? If you have read these pages for the past decade you would have learned the 5/8th of an inch rule. The manual for a common cell phone warns you NEVER to have the phone on and closer than 5/8th of an inch to your body: i.e. never touch it when it is turned on.

It is best to prevent cancer but if you get glioblastoma, eat anti-inflammatory seeds.

Gliomablastomas Increase Worldwide, Most Common Cancer in 15-19 year olds

Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM), a type of glioma, which is the most aggressive form of brain cancer and a cancer affecting 3 in 100,000, has increased in incidence.  It is the same type of cancer which killed Senator John Mc Cain, Ted Kennedy, Johnnie Cochran, and which has afflicted Maria Menounos’ mother.

It is also the same type of brain cancer that rats that have been exposed to cell phone radiation in the $25 million US government’s NTP study developed (while rats NOT exposed to cell phone radiation did not exhibit any cancers) and which the study’s peer review board has determined that there is “clear evidence of cancer” from cell phone radiation
 A report published in the journal Neuro-Oncology and funded by the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) finds that gliomas are the most common cause of cancer-related deaths in adolescents and young adults aged 15-39 and the most common cancer occurring among 15-19 year olds  (see p. 18 of study
GBM has increased according to studies from around the world, with the highest increases in the frontal and temporal lobes
  • In a study done in England looking at GBMs from 1995-2015 frontal lobe GBM increased from 533 to 1231, statistically significant increase in primary GBM tumours were seen, especially in frontal and temporal lobes of the brain.temporal lobe GBM increased from 334 to 994.  The increase was attributed to an environmental factor

  • In the US, The National Cancer Institute reported that glioma incidence in the frontal lobe increased among young adults 20-29 years of age (Inskip et al., 2010).   The incidence of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), which accounts for about half of all gliomas, increased in the frontal and temporal lobes, and in the cerebellum among adults in the U.S. from 1992-2006 (Zada et al., 2012).
  • data from The Netherlands. The black segment of each column tracks the incidence of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most aggressive and deadly type of brain tumors. While the total incidence of all types of brain tumors in The Netherlands rose at the rate of only about 0.7% per year, the increase in GBM was about 3.1% per year —that is, the incidence more than doubled over the period 1989-2010. (Follow the thin red line we superimposed on the histogram to track the trend.) This is a statistically significant increase. At the same time, the rate of all the other types of brain tumors went down; these changes are also significant. The higher incidence of GBMs is being masked by the lower rates of the other types of brain cancer.

Risk of glioma from cell phone and cordless phone use
Three independent, case-control studies have found that long-term use of cell phones increases risk for glioma (Interphone Study Group, 2010Hardell et al, 2013Coureau et al, 2014). The only research to examine cordless phone use also found increased glioma risk with long-term use (Hardell et al, 2013). These studies include data from 13 nations: Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and the UK. After ten years of wireless phone use (i.e., cell phone plus cordless phone use), the risk of glioma doubles and after 25 years, the risk triples (Hardell et al, 2013).
