Ospedale di Ginevra prende in carico gli elettrosensibili

Nello ospedale universitario HUG di Ginevra sono stati creati ambienti in cui ricoverare persone affette da elettrosensibilità.

Ricerca governativa US da 25 milioni di $ trova relazione di tumore e cellulare nei ratti


Lo studio è stato proposto dall'ente governativo americano NTP National Toxicology Program nel 2001 e realizzato con un finanziamento di 25 milioni di USD .  I risultati di questo lungo progetto saranno a breve resi pubblici, ma le conclusioni sono state rese pubbliche.

E' stato pubblicato il documento e c'è stata una conferenza stampa il 27 us.

Qui un commento di Joel M. Moskowitz

ovvero se 1 su 15 ratti maschi sottoposti a bassa intensità 1,5 W/Kg (e con la somministrazione di RF non localizzata ad es. al orecchio - cervello) si è beccato un tumore ... le conclusioni sono di 'basso impatto' ?!  


After the call, I calculated the overall risk for the male rats in the group exposed to the lowest intensity of cell phone radiation (i.e., 1.5 watts/kilogram or W/kg).  Twelve of 180, or one in 15 male rats in this group developed cancer or a pre-cancerous lesion. This latter finding has policy implications as the FCC's current cell phone regulations allow cell phones to emit up to 1.6 W/kg at the head or near the body (partial body SAR).

Microwave News: $25 million study finds cell phone radiation causes cancer in rats
Microwave News reports today that the $25 million dollar study conducted by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) has found that exposure to cell phone radiation caused cancer in rats.  See Microwave News for more details.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization should now have sufficient evidence to raise the classification of radiofrequency radiation from "possibly carcinogenic" (Group 2B) to "carcinogenic" (Group 1).

The findings of this laboratory study parallel the results of numerous epidemiologic studies in humans which have found that long-term heavy cell phone use increases the risk of brain cancer (or glioma), a malignant tumor in glial cells, and acoustic neuroma, a nonmalignant tumor in Schwann cells in the brain. In the rats, however, the affected Schwann cells were in the heart.

The study was proposed by the NTP in 2001. This long-awaited study is the only research on cell phone radiation health effects that our federal government has conducted since the 1990's. The government should release the study results soon.

Rats and mice were exposed to two second generation (2G) cell phone technologies which are still used for voice transmission. Both 2G technologies caused tumors in rats, but not in mice.

2G technologies will soon be obsolete because cell phone companies in the U.S. are planning to use 4G LTE for voice transmission. However, recent research on 3G and 4G suggests these technologies, in spite of their lower power densities, may be more risky than 2G.

The human studies showing increased risk of glioma and acoustic neuroma are listed in the references to my recent post, "Should Cellphones Have Warning Labels?" (Wall Street Journal).

Ricercatori italiani su effetti del cellulare sulle piastrine


Interessante lavoro di ricercatori della Università di Verona che hanno verificato l'effetto sulle piastrine del sangue posto visino ad un telefono cellulare.

L'effetto c'è aumentando il volume delle piastrine.



Acute effects of 30 minutes of exposure to a smartphone call on in vitro platelet function
Lippi G, Danese E, Brocco G, Gelati M, Salvagno GL, Montagnana M. Acute effects of 30 minutes of exposure to a smartphone call on in vitro platelet function. Blood Transfus. 2016 May 6:1-5. doi: 10.2450/2016.0327-15. [Epub ahead of print]



Abstract

BACKGROUND: Significant concerns are now regularly raised about the safety of excessive mobile phone use. This study was aimed to assess the acute effects of radiofrequency waves emitted by a commercial smartphone on platelet function.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two sequential citrated blood samples were collected from 16 healthy volunteers recruited from laboratory staff. The first sample was placed in a plastic rack, 1 cm distant from a commercial smartphone receiving a 30-min call and emitting 900 MHz radiofrequency waves. The second sample was placed in another plastic rack, isolated from radiofrequency wave sources, for the same period. The platelet count and the mean platelet volume were then assessed in all blood samples, whereas platelet function was evaluated using the platelet function analyser-100 (PFA-100).

RESULTS: A 30-min exposure of citrated blood to smartphone radiofrequency waves induced significant prolongation of collagen-epinephrine aggregation (median increase, 10%) and a considerable increase of mean platelet volume (median increase, 5%), whereas collagen-adenosine diphosphate aggregation and platelet count remained unchanged.

DISCUSSION: This study demonstrates that smartphone radiofrequency waves induce significant perturbation of platelet structure and function, thus providing further support to concerns regarding excessive use of mobile phones. Caution should also be taken with regards to blood products containing platelets, which should be kept far away from mobile phones and smartphones throughout the production pipeline and storage period.

5G: arrivano i primi segnali di pericolo ...

... e si sono limitati solo ai soli effetti termici !





http://www.emfacts.com/2016/05/will-massey-universitys-research-on-the-potential-health-impacts-of-5g-devices-be-limited-to-thermal-effects-only/



Cioè questi ricercatori si sono limitati a considerare i soli effetti termici riconosciuti da ICNIRP; WHO & Company.    
Rimanendo in questo contesto artefatto (volutamente, come ben noto) i ricercatori esprimono perplessità per la facilità di superare i limiti riconosciuti [legati ai soli effetti termici].

In altre parole, ... se stiamo attenti il cellulare con 5G forse non ci BRUCIAMO !  , ma cosa ci succede per i tanti effetti non-termici,  che hanno ottenuto un riconoscimento indiretto da IARC che ha classificato le radiofrequenze come possibili cancerogene ???

Cancro ed uso massivo del cellulare

Se ne parla sempre di più:

qui il caso di un businessman che conclamava un uso di sei ore al giorno del telefono cellulare ... che , purtroppo, se ne è andato alla età di 44 anni ...
