Are you concerned about cell phone dangers? More and more scientists believe that the EMR (electromagnetic radiation) emitted by cell phones is causing an unprecedented rise in brain and eye cancer.
Brain tumors now claim more young lives than any other form of cancer, including leukemia.
If you knew that something you were doing, or allowing your children to do, had a possibility of causing brain cancer, would you continue doing it, or allowing your children to do it?
Well, you might say, it’s not proven! We don’t know for sure that cell phone use causes brain cancer. And that’s true. As so frequently happens with new drugs, for example, we often don’t know for sure until it’s too late, at least for some.
In the meantime, isn’t continuing as is without at least taking protective measures a lot like playing Russian roulette?
The 2 short videos below contain valuable information on the possible cell phone/brain cancer connection. For those of you who are too busy to view them, we’ve provided a summary after the two videos.
In the first video Dr. George Carlo tells us that because we don’t yet know enough about the risks, we must exercise caution. In 1993 Dr. Carlo directed research, funded by the cell phone industry, into the health implications of mobile phone use. However, the industry didn’t like his conclusions – that though there wasn’t yet conclusive proof, the health risks seemed significant. He is now one of the world’s most credible cell phone skeptics.
If you use cell phones or have children who do, please watch these videos, and ask those you know with children to do the same. It could help save a life.
Dr. George Carlo EMF Cell Phone Dangers Interview
Australian Channel 9 News: Brain Tumors Now Cause More Deaths Than Any Other Forms of Cancer
The second video is a special report from Australia featuring Dr. Charlie Teo, a preeminent Australian brain surgeon. He, like Dr. Carlo, is also very concerned about the dangers of cell phone use, especially in children.
Some of the points Dr. Carlo, Dr. Teo, and others bring out in these interviews:
There are between 30,000 and 50,000 new cases of brain and eye cancer [every year] attributable to cell phone use. These figures are based on the epidemiological studies that have been published to date.
By the year 2010 (less than two years away as of this writing), the projections say that number is going to be near 500,000 cases of brain and eye cancer every year attributable just to cell phone use.
Studies of adults who have used the phone for 500 to a thousand minutes a month (a bit more than 15-30 minutes per day, not particularly heavy use) over a period of 10 to 12 years show the risk of brain cancer and eye cancer doubling and tripling. When you start talking about an 8 or 9-year-old child who’s beginning to use a cell phone, by the time he or she is 19 or 20 years old and has been using a cell phone for 10 years, the projections we have indicate that we are putting these children in unbelievable danger.
Referring to this data, Dr. Carlo warns, “It is unprecedented and I fear, unprecedented in terms of the danger that it presents.”
Children’s skulls are much thinner than adults’, and their brains contain more fluid than adults’ brains; therefore radio frequencies can travel through children’s brains much more easily and therefore increase the cell phone danger.
Dr. Teo shares this compelling testimony: “When patients come in with a brain cancer I’ll often say to them, ‘You know, your cancer’s on the right side of your brain; it’s in the area just above your ear. Can you tell me if you feel you’ve had more exposure than most people to mobile phones?’ And I am surprised that most people say, ‘Yes, you know I’ve used my phone continuously for the last 7 years, and it’s always stuck to my ear on this side.’ Well, that’s where the cancer is.
Other questions answered in these videos about cell phone dangers:
What might be the reason behind the cell phone companies’ cavalier attitude about the ongoing litigation against them in the United States?
What well-known entertainment company, traditionally portrayed as child-friendly, is now making money on both cell phones and cell phone signals, aggressively going after 8 to 12-year-old children (whom they call the “tweener market”), aiming their marketing strategies for cell phones at kids whose brains are still developing, putting them at far greater risk in terms of cell phone dangers?
Are cell phones the only source of EMR (electro-magnetic radiation) exposure? If not, what are the other sources?
Is there proof that cell phone use causes cancer? No. At least not the kind that would necessarily hold up in court.
But does that mean that cell phones are safe? No. We've added this very informative video to provide more information on the subject.

The First Congressional Hearings On Cell Phones in 15 Years
Among those slated to appear are David Carpenter, a co-editor of the BioInitiative Report, Ronald Herberman of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute and the FCC's Julius Knapp, as well as Ellen Marks of California, whose husband is a brain tumor survivor.
