I want to see your calculations on that! 8)

And if she didn't want shiny reflective walls, she'd have to have painted it over anyway!

Mobile phones linked to cancer in groundbreaking study
'Where people were saying there's no risk, I think this ends that kind of statement'
Siobhan Fenton

A major study has suggested there is a link between mobile phones and cancer. The report is an in-depth peer reviewed study conducted by the US government and represents a significant development in long-running controversy over how mobile phones impact on users' health.

Researchers from the National Toxicology Program exposed male rats to the type of radio frequencies which are commonly emitted by mobile phones. Following this exposure, "low incidences" of two types of tumours were found in the animals in both the brain and the heart. Tumours were not found in rats not exposed to the frequencies.

More than 2,500 rats were experimented on at various intervals over a two year period for the study.

In a report released alongside the study, the researchers said: "Given the widespread global usage of mobile communications among users of all ages, even a very small increase in the incidence of disease resulting from exposure to [radio-frequency radiation] could have broad implications for public health.”

The study is thought to be one of the largest and most in-depth analyses of mobile phones and cancers, costing the US government $25 million to carry out over the course of several years.
Ron Melnick, a former National Toxicology Program researcher who reviewed the results told the Wall Street Journal: "Where people were saying there's no risk, I think this ends that kind of statement."

The scientific community has been divided on the issue since it was first raised in the early 1990s. Many previous studies have suggested a link between cancer and mobile phone use but have been criticised for methodology or having small sample sizes which may be subsequently subject to bias.

I've probably mentioned up-thread that my boss (when I worked in a chandlery) got some kind of cancer in his head - and barely a minute of the day passed when he didn't have a phone clamped to his ear.

Just watched a rather average Filipino romance flick called 'the girl who was allergic to WiFi' - it's of interest because the plot hangs on electronic hypersensitivity and literal tinfoil hats feature prominently in the movie.

Difficult to discuss this without straying into the shark-infested waters of politics, so I post it here with no comment...

It's good. Nick has really been on form lately, I may not agree with everything he writes but he he is balanced in his approach.

I remember when (maybe) 3G was being introduced in Ireland and the SWP joined in with the loons those of us on the Libertarian Left scragged them.

Bunker of tins, arson, covered in foil but he was foiled in the end.

A conspiracy theorist broke into a locked compound and set fire to a transmitter because he thought it was harming him and his family.

David Patterson, 41, was so paranoid that the 5G mast was hurting him that he covered himself in foil and created a bunker out of tins in his kitchen.

He admitted burning the mast, which cost between £100,000 and £150,000 to replace, and causing £15,000 in damage to the garage underneath.

Prosecutor Alec Burns said the incident happened at Wardley Garage in Gateshead in the early hours of June 21 last year and that he thought he was ‘protecting his family and others, in reality, from harm’.

Defence solicitor Tony Davis said Patterson has been under the care of mental health services.

Speaking from the dock, Patterson said: ‘I know what I did was totally wrong. Conspiracy theories don’t apply to me no more. I am well aware my mind can’t take it.

‘I want to spend time with my lovely friends and lovely family now.’

Amazon continues to sell 'Anti-radiation' phone stickers.

"The listings remain eight months after scientists told the BBC the smartDOT stickers had "no effect"..... In January, as part of the BBC's investigation, the University of Surrey tested 4G mobile phones and wi-fi access points with and without the smartDOT stickers applied to them.
The researchers found no evidence of any effect, although Energydots said that measuring the "harmonising" effect of the stickers would require "biological testing...".
