While there are studies on Cell Towers, Cell Phone studies continue to break the news as well. Is the public aware of these studies and concerns that are mounting? Questions on the FCC Standards on EMF radiation emissions are coming from the FCC themselves, The Obama Cancer Study, 10 Cities and Resolutions Signed by Mayors including Mayor Newson in San Francisco, etc. Below is late breaking news on more studies coming out on Cell Phones and EMF radiation affects.
Let's ask El Cerrito to join other cities writing Resolutions to update the FCC Standards and repeal the Telecommunications Act of 1996 that takes away our cities ability to hear and use these health concerns when siting Wireless facilities. Let's Update our Wireless Zoning to prevent unresponsible siting of Wireless facilitites. Let's ask that we look into Smart Meters and EMF emissions at every house. Let's ask the wireless companies to put labels on Cell Phones in El Cerrito, so we know their output and impacts to our children (San Francisco is doing this). Let's ask our city to go green and use Fibreoptics or alternative technologies in our city, and support a green city that's cancer rates are not growing. Have your seen the cancer rates in the East Bay?
The Below article will be moved to the section on Cell Phone Studies, to the right side of this blog, in one week:
Even before the news embargo is lifted on the 5-year delayed Interphone study, news reports out of the U.K. have begun to appear communicating the very moving news that this long awaited study will indeed acknowledge that long term use of cell phones is associated with increased risk of brain tumors. The pooled results of the 13-country study (for gliomas and meningimas only) will be pubished in the International Journal of Epidemiology on Tuesday. Stay tuned for upcomig analysis from the International EMF Collaborative, authors of the landmark report, "Cellphones and Brain Tumors: 15 Reasons for Concern, Science, Spin and the Truth Behind Interphone". The essence of the analysis will reveal that the risk of brain tumors from cell phone use is indeed far worse then has just been acknowledged.
