Wireless Health Concerns Broaden

Minimize cell phone use…it’s confirmed by the world’s leading health body, the W-H-O (World Health Organization) but some scientists outside the agency say there are also concerns about the effects of chronic low-power exposures to wi-fi.

Camilla Rees, founder of, says the W-H-O’s International Agency for Research on Cancer was only charged with reviewing data specifically related to cancer. She says there is a mounting body of evidence of other biological effects – such as changes in DNA, fertility and brain metabolism – from cell phones, and other wireless technologies.

“The elephant in the room is that radiation risks are not only from cell phones, but from all radiation emitting consumer devices. Then, of course, there are the cell towers in peoples neighborhoods adding an additional layer of exposure.”

Doctor Annie Sasco is a leading cancer epidemiologist with the University of Bordeaux, France and a distinguished 20-year veteran of the International Agency for Research on Cancer for the W-H-O. Her interpretation of the research indicates the radiation from cell phones may be more dangerous than the World Health Organization is saying now, but while the research continues, people need to protect themselves.

“We need not to be panic. On the other hand, yes, I think it should be an encouragement to people to use cell phones in a reasonable way. ”

It’s estimated that there are five-billion cell phones in use around the world. Experts recommend using a hands-free device or speaker phone feature on your cell phone, and lowering exposure to all wireless devices and infrastructure.
