Comprehension fail

Being unable to find a noticeable link and finding no link are two different things.
That doesn't mean that there is a link, it doesn't mean there is no link either. It just means that based on N years of data they were unable to find a link.
Come to think about it, exposure to asbestos only shows effects 10-40 years later.

Fifteen Years

It is an interesting study but as noted in another post, fifteen years is not a long time to evaluate cancer risks. Cancer can take decades to start from initial exposure to a carcinogen. My own father died of bladder cancer at age 75. He was a professor of chemistry and was for decades exposed to many organic chemicals including benzene and carbon tetrachloride. They were identified in the 1970's as carcinogens and exposure was reduced at that time. However, one can assume the genetic damage was already done and it took two decades for the diseases to surface.

1 recommendation

sometimes it surfaces and sometimes it doesn't.

I probably stand alone here but I think the world population could use a little culling now that we have had a good hundred years of over abundance in most of the free world.

Corporate Propaganda?

But George Noory had a man on the Coast to Coast show who claimed that the study was funded by Denmark's biggest cellphone company. Not sure how reliable that is, will keep an open mind until I know exactly where this report came from.

wow

what else are they going to say? Any report that would say there is a link the Cell phone business will be dead.
Couple years back a health program I watched on a Greek channel from Greece said there was a link to cancer based on a combination of university studies from USA and Europe.
You don't know what to believe from Media anymore with the games they play.

Hello?

RF radiation is non-ionizing, it does not damage DNA and the strongest effect is warming by friction. If you think this is what causes the cancer then please by all means stop going outside as the sun warms you much more and will kill you!!!!

Well, you could always lead by example.

Wrong thing

I sincerely doubt that cel phones are causing the trouble - far more likely the increase in cancer rates are caused by a combination of poorer nutrition, various chemicals and drugs put in our food before it gets to our plate - whether animal or vegetable. Add a healthy dose of chronic stress from being overworked and underpaid and you end up with poor health.

Seems they just couldn't put cell phones above the noise of anything else that can cause cancer that a person is regularly exposed to.

One side has billions of dollars at stake, the other side has their own health at risk so history says the dollars take precedent. I guess it also divides people by those who blindly trust and those who understand that trust was lost or never there to begin with.

Please standby

Hams knows the joy of RF burns. You're cooked then later you realize that you are cooked. In 20 years we will see the effects in the courthouse. It will be a lawyer's field day.

Anybody that says putting RF to an inch from your brain is safe is irresponsible.

Cancer or not

Cell phones emit electrical signals, our body is like a big bioelectrical device, it only makes sense that our little devices could cause the cancer trigger in some people due to the increased exposure to the energy waves. (water is after all an awesome conductor). The same could be said about all the rf signals being pumped though our body on a daily basis ( computers, wifi, microwaves, etc...)

Re: Fifteen Years

I take my chances the same as anyone else. Not going to be a fool and do what I have to to get cancer.

Extremely low energy.

If RF from cell phones has any effect on health, it is likely far less than the hundreds of other carcinogenic agents we are exposed to on a daily basis such as carbon/nitrogen monoxide from gas/diesel engines, airborne heavy metals from coal plants and incinerators, airborne radioactive isotopes, etc.

Funny thing about all those cellphone doomsday paranoids is that the majority are more worried about 10-40W cell towers emitting at frequencies that can barely get through skin than 200-3000kW (5000-300000X more powerful) TV/FM antennas that go through almost anything including their bodies.

Re: Hello?

Indeed, few people actually think of sunlight as being harmful, which it is. The sun emits quite a bit of nasty stuff from UV rays to xrays, gamma rays, and beyond! The most harmful being the UV rays since they are present at much greater levels. All of that is ionizing radiation.

How many of those who believe cell phones cause cancer step outside on a sunny day without any sunscreen lotion? I'm willing to bet quite a few.

A few hours in the sun with no sunscreen lotion probably increases your cancer risk by a lot more than a lifetime's worth of cellphone usage (that's assuming cellphone microwave radiation has any effect at all whatsoever).

Re: Corporate Propaganda?

Yes and that Cellphone company would not allow data in un covered areas (areas without towers) to be entered into the data. lol
