Malignant brain tumors most common cause of cancer deaths in adolescents and young adults

This article is just giving us statistics regarding brain tumors. However those of you who have read the research widely will know that any link to emf exposure from mobile phones is a controversial issue that is pretty much played down by the industries. It might make a dent in profits. Apple does tell us in their (very) fine print to hold our phones 5/8 inch from our bodies. Dr Mercola also writes of heavy mobile phone use quadrupling our risk of brain cancer. Watch the following 2 minute clip on topic by a medical doctor. Isn’t it worth researching? There’s enough evidence of risk to do so. And there are ways to protect yourself without throwing away your phone. I first pricked my ears up at this topic when I read a conversation saying brain surgeons could tell what side of your head you held your phone. Check out our EMF pages and particularly the wi-cancer website, an excellent resource.

Malignant brain tumors most common cause of cancer deaths in adolescents and young adults

American Brain Tumor Association funds first comprehensive study of 15-39 year-old population

AMERICAN BRAIN TUMOR ASSOCIATION

Chicago, Ill., Feb. 24, 2016 – A new report published in the journal Neuro-Oncology and funded by the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) finds that malignant brain tumors 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.

The 50-page report, which utilized data from the Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States (CBTRUS) from 2008-2012, is the first in-depth statistical analysis of brain and central nervous system (CNS) tumors in adolescents and young adults (AYA). Statistics are provided on tumor type, tumor location and age group (15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34 and 35-39) for both malignant and non-malignant brain and CNS tumors.

“When analyzing data in 5-year age increments, researchers discovered that the adolescent and young adult population is not one group but rather several distinct groups that are impacted by very different tumor types as they move into adulthood,” said Elizabeth Wilson, president and CEO of the American Brain Tumor Association.

“For these individuals — who are finishing school, pursuing their careers and starting and raising young families — a brain tumor diagnosis is especially cruel and disruptive,” added Wilson. “This report enables us for the first time to zero-in on the types of tumors occurring at key intervals over a 25-year time span to help guide critical research investments and strategies for living with a brain tumor that reflect the patient’s unique needs.”

Scientist warns of wireless threat from smart meters, cellphones

A renowned Canadian scientist and expert in molecular oncology says hundreds of millions of residents around the world are being “blanketed in an electromagnetic smog” caused by wireless devices such as smart meters and the potential health care consequences will be staggering.

Speaking in front of an audience of more than 100 residents from across the South Okanagan at the Oliver Community Centre this past Saturday morning, Dr. Malcolm Paterson gave a detailed two-hour presentation – following by an extended question and answer period – about the concerns he shares with fellow scientists and the medical community about the impact of wireless technology on human health.

Paterson’s presentation was entitled The Electromagnetic Age: A Sleeping Giant?

The level of radio frequency (RF) and electromagnetic frequency  (EMF) technology impacting the lives of hundreds of millions of residents around the world is 3,000 times higher than levels measured back in 1980, said Paterson, who has given four previous similar presentations in the South Okanagan over the past three weeks.

Paterson has a Masters degree in Science from Queen’s University in Kingston and attained his PhD in molecular oncology in the United States.

Health Canada’s current measurement system to determine the impact of wireless technology – including smart meters and cellphones – is called Safety Code 6, said Paterson.

Is Wi-Fi making your child ill? – from the NZ Herald

“Six years ago, Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe moved to the country, stopped carrying a mobile phone and sacrificed a successful career in emergency medicine to focus on a new medical interest – radiation emitted by Wi-Fi, mobiles and other wireless devices.

She is now one of the country’s few professional advisers on medical conditions related to radiofrequency (RF) radiation and other electromagnetic fields (EMFs)…”

10 Ways to Reduce Radiation from Cell Phone Use

From the Natural Society website: a pertinent reminder to protect ourselves from harm. It’s been fairly well established these devices, along with many others (including smart meters) are causing damage … we don’t necessarily have to discard them all … we just need to take the necessary precautions to protect ourselves. Here are some practical ways to do that.

“The world loves its cell phones  – so much so that there are more cell phones on this planet than people! While these technological devices can offer incredible service and ease in a hectic, modern world, they can also be a serious health hazard…”
