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.

So I am a blinded fool. Hmmmm. And I should STFU. Hmmmm. And you want me to have a leg placed in my rectum. Hmmm. And you feel my view is uninformed and unwise. Indeed as if I were a toddler. And you further feel that if I were to be diagnosed with terminal brain cancer (caused by cell phone radiation) that this would indeed change my view point. But you further feel that I would weep for my maternal parent as I have been proven ignorant. That cover it? It was a little hard to follow.

You seem very angry.

Let me see if I can help you out a bit. Please answer these questions.

Does feeling angry make you feel important?
Or alive?
Do you feel as if you aren't appreciated by the DT community or the community at large?
That they take you and your opinions for granted?
Do you feel that your anger gets the better of you from time to time?
Do people that you know agree with you so that you won’t be angry at them?
Do you feel that others around you don’t see the “big picture”?
That indeed it is your personal task to correct them?
Is being angry a good feeling to you?
Do you feel that you are proportional in your responses to opinions that you disagree with?
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, how often is your anger at or above 6?
Sometimes when you are angry do you wish to hurt yourself or others?
If anger was a rainbow what color would your anger be?

You mail post your answers here and we will try to help you.
