Tres niños con leucemia en una escuela inglesa en High Park, Southport.

Jueves 23 de marzo de 2006 · 2348 lecturas



Last year there were 30,000 cases of brain and eye tumours reported as a direct result of cell phone use. 2006 will see about 50-75,000 new cases of brain and eye tumours and estimates are that by 2010 there will be 300,000 to 500,000 cases of tumours.

These numbers are based on an adult averaging 500 minutes per month. Adults do not use their phones as much as children ages 12-17 whose brain tissues are still developing and use an average of 1,000 minutes per month now.

These numbers come from Dr.George Carlo who headed the wireless industry research team in the early 90`s and discovered definitively that cell phone use does cause cancer.

Phone mast scare in High Park, Southport

Its alleged that a Southport Children’s Nursery has three children with leukaemia

It is not surprising that a 30 foot metal phone mast should cause anger amongst local residents forced to live with the eyesore, but is there more at risk?

Parents in High Park, Southport have turned to Phil Rodwell the Prospective Conservative Candidate for Norwood Ward in May’s local election for help after they were informed that there are three children at a nearby children’s nursery with leukaemia (although one child may have moved last year).

Its alleged that Dr.George Carlo (who headed the wireless industry research team in the early 90`s) claims that phone masts are a danger, and parents in High Park, Southport are now worried for their children’s health.

It’s Fifteen years since the birth of the mobile phone, and there are now over 35,000 masts and base stations in Britain.

There have always been objections to the erecting of phone masts, not least because of their unsightly bulk.

Many residents living, quite literally, in the shadow of a mast, are far more concerned with the risk they say it poses to their health.

Wishaw resident, Eileen O’Connor, claims that the mast, erected in her village over a decade ago, brought with it a variety of health complaints from many local residents ranging from nosebleeds to headaches.

But for Eileen, it was worse - breast cancer.

"I have gone through so many emotions," explains Eileen. "It’s complete shock and anger that this has been allowed to happen."

Although there is no statistical evidence to support the claim of a cancer cluster in Wishaw, Eileen firmly believes that the two are linked and set up local campaign group SCRAM - Sutton Coldfield Residents Against Masts.

Last year there were 30,000 cases of brain and eye tumours reported as a direct result of cell phone use. 2006 will see about 50-75,000 new cases of brain and eye tumours and estimates are that by 2010 there will be 300,000 to 500,000 cases of tumours.

These numbers are based on an adult averaging 500 minutes per month. Adults do not use their phones as much as children ages 12-17 whose brain tissues are still developing and use an average of 1,000 minutes per month now.

These numbers come from Dr.George Carlo who headed the wireless industry research team in the early 90`s and discovered definitively that cell phone use does cause cancer.

The cell industry distanced themselves from Dr. Carlo’s research (they paid for it - $28 million dollars) when the results came in.

Dr. Carlo authored a book called Cell phones-Invisible Hazards of the Wireless Age in the mid 90`s. He recently founded the non-profit organization Safe Wireless Initiative — to bring this information to the public.

Sir William Stewart carried out an investigation for the govt and reported last year that as an advisory measure masts should not be located near schools or hospitals.

Dr Walker will be visiting Southport on 30th & 31st March in order to carry out a full spectrum test.
