UK report shows no link between mobile phone signals and health related side effects

Conclusions from a study conducted in the UK on the health impact of using mobile telephones were released today. The Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research Programme (MTHR) undertook the study as part of its 2007 report.

The study concluded that there was no evidence linking short-term mobile phone use to brain cancer. Tests performed on volunteers in the study showed that brain function was not affected by mobile phone signals or signals used by emergency agencies. The MTHR says that the results are definitive enough that no further research is needed into this area.

Part of the study included what is called the largest and most robust study of electrical hypersensitivity undertaken anywhere in the world. No evidence was found that any unpleasant symptoms experienced by sufferers are a result of exposure to mobile phone signals or from cellular towers.

Further results in the study showed after investigation that mobile phones have no affect on cells other than heating them. Longer-term exposure to mobile phone signals still warrants more research in the opinion of the study because a limited number of study participants had used a mobile phone for more than 10 years.

Further studies by the MTHR also confirmed that the use of mobile phones while driving using hands-free devices or simply holding the phone caused no more impairment on the part of the driver than any other in-car distractions.

Foreign radiation in our bodies

It may not cause cancer, but the low-level radiation can be harmful in other ways. After many years of mobile phone usage, recently, I have started to experience this profound sense of fatigue, a feeling of emptiness. I was able to interpret these feelings correctly: loss of essence.

That reference obviously flew over your head like a B-52 piloted by Slim Pickens flies over Siberia on it's way to bomb the Russkies.

Alternatively you could've missed a counterpoint.

Fortunately for you I did indeed miss the reference by about a thousand miles.

Don't you get it? The hard-core commies with their radiation emitting phones are trying to sap and impurity our precious bodily fluids!

He is likely one of them and no doubt he is trying to gain our trust to get a chance to see the Big Board.

It must be cell phones! It explains everything!

While very funny there could be some truth in that. I've heard of strong EMF waves causing; fatigue, depression, paranoia, and the feeling that some one is watching you. Supposedly most the time some one experiences any of these on a regular basis in their home, a device such as a DC transformer can be found to be emitting a powerful EMF wave and if the device is removed the effects go away. It's not cancer but it's something. Not only that but it has been proven that the repair men who work on the cell phone towers start developing cataracts way before they should.

In french, essence stands for fuel.
Go refuel yourself

Your loss of essence is easily remedied. Get off the computer, stop talking on your cell phone all day, and go do something fun like racing through a mountain pass, mountain biking, hiking, river rafting or joining Mike Rowe.
