Part I: Major Misstatements
Cell phone radiation is a national emergency. Stunningly, the For more information, visit www. Stunningly, the most popular gadget of our age has now been shown to damage DNA, break down the brain’s defenses, and reduce sperm count while increasing memory loss, the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, and even cancer.
The growing brains of children make them especially vulnerable. And half of the world’s four billion cell phone used by people under twenty. Davis, the founding director of the toxicology and environmental studies board at the U.
National Academy of Sciences, takes readers through the dark side of this trillion-dollar industry.
Health experts dksconnect long been frozen out of policy-making decisions about cell phones; federal regulatory standards are set by the cell phone industry itself. Cell phone manufacturers have borrowed the playbook of the tobacco industry.
One secret memo reveals their war plan against reports of cell phone dangers. Among a host of fascinating characters, Davis introduces Om P. Gandhi, a world fevra on how cell phone radiation penetrates the human brain.
Once dzvis consultant to major cell phone companies, Gandhi now refuses to work with them. Franz Adlkofer led the multi-lab study that showed once and for all that brain cell DNA is unraveled by cell phone microwave radiation-and, as Davis dramatically portrays, it nearly cost him his career.
As this eye-opening call devfa action shows, we can make safer cell phones now. Why would we put our children at risk of a devastating epidemic of brain disonnect in the years to come?

Maybe my expectations were simply too high. I mean, it is billed as “The much-anticipated, explosive expose” that will rock your socks because it is “by one of the world’s discobnect scientific experts in the field”! I did not enjoy how the author related much of the information as anecdotal.
Also, if someone tells me that cell phone radiation is a national emergency one more time. I think that I wasn’t shocked be Maybe I just wasn’t in the mood, but this expose was not all that shocking to me. I think that I wasn’t shocked because I already knew much of what was “exposed” by the author. I was hoping for more revelations of the Earth-shattering variety.
It was interesting, however, to note drastic differences in industry-sponsored fevra and non-industry published findings–but this is also true of the Dairy industry, so again: The main take away after pages was to think of the children! While cell phone radiation is harmful to adults and we are all most likely growing brain tumors as we speak, keep your children away from dissconnect phones at all costs, because their itty-bitty, still developing heads are a gazillion times more susceptible to death by cell phone.
The author supplies a listing in the back of her book of suggestions on how to protect yourself and your loved ones Think of the Children! Disconnet submit a sampling for your edification. This drastically reduces your exposure. But, you’ll be a safe jerk. No putting it in your lap. Place it on a table or your dashboard so that you are nowhere near the antenna.
Shout loudly at it. Looking at you, men with cell phone hip holsters. You are ruining your man seed. Void these terms if you keep your phone on your person but dais off. Also, girls are awesome because we keep it safely stowed in our purse.
Don’t keep it in your ear when you are not talking. You look like a tool. While using diconnect device is better than holding a cell phone flush against your ear, the BlueTooth thing is not that good for you either. This is the most likely time that radiation will eat your brain, because the phone antenna increases the use of a more deadly radio wave for reception in low signal areas.

As a researcher, what I find most alarming is how independent research no longer exists. Everything is government or industry funded.
If research interferes with deep pockets’ bottom line, you’ll find yourself without funding. The teleco The title may seem like an admonition but it actually refers to the relationship between public perception and scientific knowledge regarding cell phone use as well as the relationship between industry-sponsored study findings and non-industry sponsored studies.
The telecommunications industry has acted swiftly to cut funding of researchers that publish anything regarding cell phones negatively impacting health. They have also worked to generally discredit these individuals, change their data in journals and set up copy-cat studies with significant differences that would be extremely unlikely to replicate the previous results. That is why there is so much ambiguity regarding the health impact of cell phone use. Because for every study discohnect increased risk of brain tumors, there disconnecf a poorly designed study showing no such risk.
It is easier for me to see through this knowing something about study design and epidemiology. Congress has made no process in protecting us because for every concerned congressperson who actually listens to expert testimony there are even more who have already decided there is no risk because it benefits themselves and their constituents financially.
Pretty much, there is corruption everywhere you look these days. Bottom line about cell phone use: Don’t use it in elevators or trains. Keep away from children.
There is plenty of evidence that microwave radio at cellphone frequencies increase risk of brain tumors and disrupt human cell DNA. Not to mention that it has given rats epilepsy and compromised their blood-brain barrier.
I want laypeople to understand that they cannot automatically accept scientists’ pronouncements at face value, for too often they’re self-serving and misleading. I want our citizens, nonscientists as well as investigators, to work to change the way research is administered. The way it’s currently funded and evaluated, we’re learning more and more and about less and less and less, and science is becoming our enemy instead of our friend.

And entomologists have shown that heavy users of cell phones for 10 or more years have double the rate of brain cancer.

If they don’t support the author’s devrra, then they’re part of the conspiracy against her propaganda. Do yourself a favor and don’t waste your time with this crap. This book describes an immense disconnect between common opinions about cell phone safety and the actual data It tells all too human stories behind the science and daivs of cell phones and raises important unresolved questions about this universal technology.
