Cell Phone Carcinogenic
June 3, 2011 by staff
Cell Phone Carcinogenic, Tuesday classification of mobile phones as potentially carcinogenic produced some big headlines, despite being based on any additional research or statistical data and phones placed in the category of danger than coffee.
“Mobile Radiation can cause cancer,” read one headline, while “mobile, confirmed link to cancer” was another. Most news agencies were more cautious and prefer to plant the seeds of uncertainty with questions like “Could it be your phone making you sick?” And “Is your phone lethal?” that is reporting the news as just so much more exciting.
Especially when the news is pretty boring. The World Health Organization classifies a lot of things as potential carcinogens, including lead, fern, the printing process, and working in a laundry, but we live with all these things and more that are harder spelling (25 pages PDF/98.3KB). But more annoying was the fact that the classification is not the result of any additional information is just a reaction to what we already know.
WHO has recognized its reclassification in large part by the Interphone study, ananlysis of 10 years seemed to indicate that the use of a phone more than 30 minutes a day increased the likelihood of cancer (in which find their classification based WHO.) But Interphone also found that the use of a phone for less than 30 minutes a day reduces the incidence of cancer – which the WHO should be recommending that we all make a few calls a day.
But let’s ignore the contradictory evidence for a moment, and take the Interphone study at its worst, assuming everyone has their chances of cancer of the head struck by 40 percent. Let’s suppose further that everyone in the UK (including infants and children) spend an hour a day with a phone attached to his ear, if we both scenarios then we should see a little more than a thousand deaths additional year of brain cancer.
That is regrettable, but it is clear: to kill and nearly three times that number for the pleasure and productivity of being able to drive our cars around the place. That is not a theoretical risk – in the UK killed about eight people a day on our roads. That’s the level of death we will accept for the pleasure of driving, and we have some of the safest roads in the world.
We could no more turn off our mobile network than we could stop driving cars, and luckily some people are suggesting either.
The people are not afraid of driving because they (probably wrongly) think they have some level of control, while the poisonous rays from mobile phones are to be feared. That fear sells newspapers, and as public fears led to the Japanese authorities to improve Fukushima reactor to “Level 7″ despite no change in the conditions there at the WHO, the lists of mobile phones as potential cancer despite the lack of empirical evidence.
The worst thing is that by doing the WHO provides fodder for campaigners against things that are happy to see an August body as apparently endorsing their views. The WHO statement was a few minutes old when we got a statement following the Council of Europe, which adopted the report of scaremongering own last week and could hardly conceal his joy:
“The WHO information confirms the contents of my report,” said the author trick-cyclist-entertainment of the report, despite the fact that the WHO said anything like that, “awareness campaigns aimed at teachers and Parents should be implemented quickly, “he continued before falling into a stupor complacent.
The WHO has recently added to a list of mobile phones * including coffee and woodwork, saying that it is possible, perhaps, that heavy use is a factor contributing to cancer rates.
But even if there is a risk of using mobile phones after the risk is extremely small – there are many things that will kill you, but your mobile phone if you do not hit very hard (most likely to happen, ironically, during a car accident).
So what we have is the risk that almost certainly there, and even if it does, then it is a small risk – a good reason to embark on another very expensive (25 years!) Study of the effects.
There were thousands of yuppies that spent the decade of 1980 to hold phones to their ears, and hundreds of thousands of people today. When they start to fall dead in a significant number will then be time for the rest of us to panic … once we have concluded the final demise of the yuppies, of course.
