Robert C. Kane "Cellular Telephone Russian Roulette"
Though some of you might know it already or had it in their mail earlier from me, many might not know. I'd be lucky if those who already received the book some time ago would leave a short comment or drop me one I can publish together with the article?
We have the most important book about the hazards of mobile phones online as PDF:
Robert C. Kane ? Cellular Telephone Russian Roulette (Download)
Robert C. Kane had been working as top developer inside Motorola for decades, developing mobile phones. He died from brain cancer a few years ago, not without leaving this planet with a message, which you can find in his book.

I am sure this book could help to wake up people.
International Appeal from Würzburg
(Français, English, Deutsch)
?The European Academy for Environmental Medicine (EUROPAEM) invited many renowned national and international scientists and health care professionals to a medical conference held in Wuerzburg, Germany from April 23 to April 25, 2010.
Greatly concerned, participants noted the increasing prevalence of various chronic multisystem illnesses.
At the conference it was impressively demonstrated that these chronic diseases are based on similar pathological mechanisms. Common mechanisms are chronic inflammatory processes influenced by environmental factors including chemical pollutants, biological infectious agents, and electromagnetic field (EMF) triggers.?

Cell Phone 'Honeymoon' Finally Over?
Sean Arthur Joyce
With articles on the link between cell phones and brain tumours or other cancers now appearing in major magazines such as GQ, Harpers's, Prevention and even Time magazine, it appears the long 'honeymoon' North American telecommunications corporations have enjoyed is finally over.
What I mean by that is that due to the deep level of vertical integration between media corporations who control the news we get and the Big Telecom who are now their major advertisers, until recently there has been a virtual media 'blackout' on such stories.
But as more and more independent scientific studies from around the world demonstrate grave concern with the effects of microwaves on biology, including DNA strand breaks that lead to permanent chromosomal damage, the tide of public concern has become overwhelming.
Some scientists such as Australian neurosurgeon Dr. Vini Khurana are predicting a massive wave of brain tumours between 2008-2012. The problem of course is that medical statistics are often poorly coordinated with overall data, so naysayers can easily claim there are no trend increases in tumours. Yet already it's known that brain tumours are now the leading killer of kids in the U.S. ??
A leading authority on cancer, epidemiologist Dr. Samuel Epstein, has stated that in his view both the Canadian and American Cancer Societies are compromised due to close funding ties with the pharmaceutical industry. So it is no longer enough to simply pull up their websites and rely solely on them for guidance. (See http://www.preventcancer.com
At the international level, the EMF project at the WHO formerly headed up by Dr. Repacholi has also been criticized for setting microwave exposure standards that are considered by many scientists to be far outside the range of safety. Some have suggested that Repacholi himself is compromised by receiving funding from the telecommunications industry. (See http://www.next-up.org
Congressional hearings in the U.S. recently heard testimony from Dr. Devra Davis, another leading scientist who has been sounding warnings on high exposure levels in North America. Not surprisingly, there have been no American studies done on the subject since the one headed up by epidemiologist Dr. George Carlo in the 1990s. This $28 million study was part of the telecommunication industry's 'deal with the devil', the FDA; a study they agreed to fund in exchange for being allowed to market cell phones WITH NO PRE-MARKET SAFETY TESTING. When Dr. Carlo delivered his final report to the telecom industry in 1999, noting some serious concerns with biological effects from cell phones, it was quickly buried.
In the final week of April we had a similar hearing in Canadian Parliament, though not quite so high profile, with the House Standing Committee on Health in Ottawa. The Parliamentary committee agreed to hear concerns about microwave exposure standards after Bloc Québécois MP Luc Malo presented a petition with 1,100 signatures asking Parliament to ?protect the public from microwaves.? The petition was an initiative of the Québec group Protect Our Children From Microwaves (SEMO in French), headed by François Therrien.
The Committee heard testimony from international experts, including Dr. Andrew Goldsworthy of the UK, Dr. Olle Johansson of Sweden, Dr. Magda Havas of Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario, and of course Health Canada's mouthpiece, Dr. Daniel Krewski. The Committee also took submissions from citizens and concerned parents across the country.
Dr. Krewski, who heads up the Centre for Population Risk Assessment at the University of Ottawa, has received funding from the telecommunications industry. He is not the only one on Health Canada's panel of scientists with direct or indirect links to the industry. This is standard-issue influence peddling with government, a typical tactic of industry used since the advent of Big Tobacco.??
To its credit, the Committee has decided to allocate $12,000 to further study the matter. What that study will mean has yet to be explained. Will they finally begin to include the countless international studies showing real risks from cell phone and wireless use? Will they recommend that Health Canada revisit and update its hopelessly antiquated Safety Code 6? Or will Big Telecom trump any real change? It remains to be seen. The marriage of corporation and government has proven disastrous in every sphere of life, from communications to the environment. The current oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is just the latest proof of that. And like any bad marriage, when the honeymoon wears off, it's time to consider exit strategies. Just as the U.S. Congress is grappling with ways to impose some governance on a Wall Street run amok, we must do the same with Big Telecom.
At present, Industry Canada has de facto power over any regional district or municipal government when it comes to granting permission to erect cell phone transmitters and towers. Local democracy is trashed in favour of profit-making corporations. They cannot continue to be allowed to run roughshod over communities who are merely trying to preserve a healthy way of life for their families. "Business is business," true, but not when your product endangers my health or even my life.
Big Telecom, the honeymoon is over. Divorce papers should follow shortly.
Sunday Edition, response
On your April 25th, 2010 broadcast of the ?Sunday Edition?, the 3rd hour talk with Telecommunication Industry defender Dr. Daniel Krewski was as entertaining as an espionage movie. The soft, reassuring tones of Dr Krewski, telling us the Precautionary Principal is not valid in the modern age and repeating Industry?s verse and chorus of assurance and safety. Then there is the confidence in his weight of evidence and Safety Code 6 and all the while, behind the scenes, guess who is receiving Telecommunication Industry funding for research validating their very own Industry. And for humour, add the whole Catch-22 of the oxymoron ?Industry funded?, especially when cloaked under the empty phrase ?weight of evidence?. Guess who is funding the ?weight? in weight of evidence. And what about the evidence smothered under that weight?
Then, lurking in the background is Repacholi. Who?d have guessed the webs of intrigue?
And what is a movie without a sequel?
?When is the report (Interphone Study) going to be released?? asks Michael Enright is a slightly smiling voice. ?If you call me in a few weeks I might even have a date for you Michael? croons the layered Krewski.
Promises, promises, promises.
Dr. Samuel S. Epstein, chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition, warns that the American Cancer Society has close financial ties to the makers of mammography equipment. Five radiologists have served as presidents of the American Cancer Society (ACS).
In its every move, the ACS promotes the interests of the major manufacturers of mammogram machines and films, including Siemens, DuPont, General Electric, Eastman Kodak, and Piker.
This bias hypes mammography, which Dr. Epstein and Dr. Rosalie Bertell emphasize is an avoidable cause of breast cancer itself.
According to World Wire:
?Routine mammography delivers an unrecognized high dose of radiation, warn Drs. Epstein and Bertell. If a woman follows the current guidelines for premenopausal screening, over a 10 year period she would receive a total dosage of about 5 rads. This approximates the level of exposure to radiation of a Japanese woman one mile from the epicenter of atom bombs dropped on Hiroshima or Nagasaki.?
