Wi-Fi Radiation Questioned In Boy’s Death

As reported by International Business Times (12/13)
New Zealand Parents of Boy with Brain Cancer Want Wi-Fi Out of School By Reissa Su

New Zealand parents want to remove Wi-Fi from classrooms at Te Horo School after their son died from brain cancer. Ethan Wyman died 11 months after doctors diagnosed two brain tumours.

The death of the boy prompted a Kapiti Coast school to conduct a survey about what parents think of Wi-Fi in schools. The board of trustees has sent the survey to all parents after the Wymans told them about the risk of radiation from Wi-Fi. A recent study has shown the effect of radiation from Wi-Fi may be associated with cancer. However, the Ministry of Education, which has been attending meetings with the New Zealand's Ministry of Health in the school, said research findings show Wi-Fi is safe to use.

Damon Wyman, father of Ethan, said his son was diagnosed with brain tumours three months after the boy was given an iPod with a Wi-Fi connection. The parents found out later on that their son had been sleeping with the iPod under his pillow. Mr Wyman said even if the device was on standby, the iPod was still giving off bursts of radiation as it tried to connect to a router.

According to doctors who examined the boy, the tumours were estimated to be four months old. Mr Wyman's son died at the age of 10, only less than a year of his diagnosis. Mr Wyman said he did not say it was the Wi-Fi that caused the death but "it seems like a bit of coincidence" since most parents are cautious about giving their young children a mobile phone. He said having a Wi-Fi connection in the classroom is exposing about 30 children to the same thing.

Despite the ministry's statement of Wi-Fi being safe, research studies advise to take precautions against Wi-Fi. Some parents had suggested cable Internet as an alternative way to connect. School board chairman Steve Joss said the school was taking the parents' concerns seriously. Although no final decisions were made, they were still working on gathering more information.

A research study has confirmed that the electromagnetic radiation coming from WiFi can be dangerous to health. Safe Wireless Technology New Zealand (SWTNZ) said WiFi has negative effects to health and the New Zealand government has chosen to ignore the findings. Based on the findings, SWTNZ chairman Greg Kasper said radiation from WiFi can cause nausea, headaches and even cancer. He said too much exposure is detrimental to health.

Some research studies have suggested a possible link between the use of WiFi and a variety of symptoms like tingling and burning sensations, skin redness, fatigue, nausea, heart palpitations and problems with digestion.

Stronger Cell Phone - Cancer Links

As reported by Dr. Joseph Mercola (1/11 mercola.com) New Evidence Identifies Strong Cell Phone Cancer Link

A research group has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of parotid gland tumors over the last 30 years, with the steepest increase happening after 2001. The research was carried out at Hebrew University in Jerusalem at the Hadassah School of Dental Medicine by Rakefet Czerninski, Avi Zini and Harold Sgan-Cohen. For many years now, skeptics have argued that the epidemiological studies pointing to a tumor risk from cell phones must be wrong, because no one has seen an increase in cell-phone related tumors in the general population. But one of these earlier epidemiological studies found that heavy users of cell phones "showed significantly elevated risks" of parotid gland tumors. (Sadetzki et al showed 49 percent increased risk of parotid gland tumors. Another, by Lonn et al, in 2006, found parotid gland increase of 160 percent (borderline significance). So the long- term trend data recently reported by Hebrew University is not surprising.

According to Microwave News: "The parotid gland is a type of salivary gland -- the one that is closest to the cheek next to where most people hold their cell phones. Interestingly, the new ... data show no similar increases in the two other major types of salivary glands, the submandibular and sublingual glands that are further away from the phone."

In related news, another study by Hardell et al in Sweden has confirmed that design flaws in the Interphone study (published May 2010) caused the risk of brain tumors (gliomas) to be underestimated.

The Interphone study claimed that use of a digital cell phone for more than 10 years led to a 118 percent increase in the risk of brain cancer. But an analysis by Hardell et al in 2006, which experts consider a very well designed study, revealed that the increased risk of malignant brain tumors could be as high as 180 percent.

A recent re-analysis of the Hardell data by the Hardell team, published December 17, 2010 in the International Journal of Epidemiology, finally now explains the difference in brain tumor risk found in the two studies. It shows the difference to be related to differences in methodology: 1) a difference in the age ranges selected for the two analyses, and 2) due to the Interphone study inaccurate classification of portable phone users as 'unexposed' to microwave radiation.

When the Hardell data was recast by the Hardell team using the more limited protocol used by the Interphone study -- i.e. considering subjects who were between 30-59 years instead of 20-80 years used by the Hardell team originally, and classifying any subject who used a cordless phone as 'unexposed,' as the Interphone study had inexplicably done -- the two data sets revealed essentially the same risk of brain tumors. This demonstrates the lesser risk of brain cancers from cell phone use reported in the Interphone study was a result of the Interphone study's design flaws.

Camilla Rees of ElectromagneticHealth.org says: "Were a wider age range used, as in the original Hardell research (ages 20 to 80), and subjects properly classify as 'exposed' to microwave radiation if they used portable (including cordless) phones emitting microwave radiation, the risk of brain tumors would be as was found in the original Hardell research: a 180% increased risk of malignant brain cancers."

Dr. Joseph Mercola's Comments: Salivary gland cancers are typically rare and have few known risk factors, but a new study found a certain type of salivary gland cancer, parotid gland tumors, are on the rise. In Israel, parotid gland cancers increased 4-fold from 1970 to 2006, while rates of other salivary gland cancers remained stable. Another interesting finding is that 20 percent of the incidence of salivary gland tumors are found in people under age 20. What's especially concerning about these findings? Your parotid gland is the salivary gland closest to where you hold your cell phone to your ear and cheek.

Just like smoking tobacco, they fail to realize that it can take anywhere from 10 to 30 years for brain tumors to develop from cell phone exposure, so we are just now beginning to see some of the tragic effects of heavy cell phone use. The truth is, many believe we are on the verge of a brain cancer epidemic.
