Perhaps someday soon, maybe even by the next Xmas purchasing season, where Americans will, once again, be guilted into buying obscene amounts of junk to satisfy semi-tolerable relatives’ desire for said junk, some company will invent a device to pry the cell/smartphone from the ear, cheek, buttocks, hip, hands and possibly other body parts from addicted users. Until then, the following warning might get them to consider….God forbid…using a land line, or better yet – seriously curtailing the use of the potentially cancer-causing devices they can’t live without.
The California Department of Public Health has issued guidelines on cell phone exposure, warning residents to keep their cell phone away from their body to reduce potential cancer and infertility risks. via RT.com
Yet…our “loving” federal government hasn’t seen the light.
A number of expert agencies including the US Food and Drug Administration, the National Cancer Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have said sufficient evidence has not been presented to show an association between exposure to radio frequencies from a cell phone and health problems.
The agencies suggest more research is needed. The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified radio waves as “possible carcinogens” but note there is limited evidence. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Toxicology Program (NTP), meanwhile, have not formally classified cell phones as to their cancer-causing potential. – RT.com
Hmmm, these American agencies, who are suppose be overlooking factors that contribute to disease and ill-health – where in the hell have they been?
From September, 2011 – Ban mobile phones and wireless networks in schools, say European leaders – via Telegraph.co.uk –
A Council of Europe committee examined evidence that the technologies have “potentially harmful” effects on humans, and concluded that immediate action was required to protect children.
In a report, the committee said it was crucial to avoid repeating the mistakes made when public health officials were slow to recognise the dangers of asbestos, tobacco smoking and lead in petrol.
The report also highlighted the potential health risks of cordless telephones and baby monitors, which rely on similar technology and are widely used in British homes.
Fears have been raised that electromagnetic radiation emitted by wireless devices can cause cancers and affect the developing brain.
The findings were seized on by campaigners who oppose the spread of wireless devices.
France, as reported in the Telegraph, has imposed a total ban on mobile phones in schools beginning in 2018.
France is to impose a total ban on pupils using mobile phones in primary and secondary schools starting in September 2018, its education minister has confirmed.
Phones are already forbidden in French classrooms but starting next school year, pupils will be barred from taking them out at breaks, lunch times and between lessons.
Teachers and parents are divided over a total ban, however, with some saying children must be able to “live in their time”. In France, some 93 per cent of 12 to 17-year-olds own mobile phones.
“These days the children don’t play at break time anymore, they are just all in front of their smartphones and from an educational point of view that’s a problem,” said Jean-Michel Blanquer, the French education minister.
“This is about ensuring the rules and the law are respected. The use of telephones is banned in class. With headmasters, teachers and parents, we must come up with a way of protecting pupils from loss of concentration via screens and phones,” he said.
Yes, it’s not only the cancer-causing potential of these devices, which is bad enough, it’s also that they dissuade communication, education and learning.
As it turns out, the mass poisoning of human brains with cellphone radiation has only been going on for a generation or so. It may be the common cause behind the insanity, and California health authorities have just confirmed this possibility by issuing new warnings about the adverse brain effects of cellphone radiation exposure.
“The research suggests cellphones could increase our risk for brain cancer and tumors, low sperm count, headaches, as well as impaired memory, hearing, and sleep,” reports CBS News / San Francisco. In other words, cellphone radiation has been found to directly interfere with normal brain function, leading people to demonstrate abnormal cognitive function. This, combined with the brain-warping harmful effects of social media, seems to have driven our society to the brink of runaway mental illness across the masses.
Just as the Romans destroyed their civilization with the help of lead poisoning in the water aqueducts, we may be destroying our own civilization by frying all our brains with cellphone radiation (and thereby driving our people insane).
“How much more radiation penetrates your body today compared to just 10 years ago??? – twice as much, 3 times as much????…NO, it’s a quintillion times as much – that’s a 1 followed by 18 zeros.” – from Generation Zapped

Perhaps we’ll wake up in time to save ourselves and our loved ones…sadly, more than likely, not – after all, we’re too busy with our cell phones to pay attention.
