Tragic teens are laid to rest
Mar 6 2008 by Kerry-Lynne Doyle, Glamorgan Gazette

Council should meet scientist
A DENTIST says the council should meet a scientist who claims mobile phones and wireless internet waves can lead to suicide.

Dr Tony Fodor, of De Granville Place, Porthcawl, says he wants Bridgend County Borough Council to enter discussions with scientist Barrie Trower regarding his research.

As revealed in the Gazette in January, Mr Trower, who has investigated seven suicide clusters, wrote to the council and Bridgend Local Health Board (LHB) outlining his research.

It suggests waves from devices such as mobile phone masts can lead to depression and suicides among youngsters.

Following his letter, Mr Trower has been asked to send his research to Dr Eddie Coyle at the LHB.

He has not been contacted by BCBC. Dr Fodor believes Mr Trower’s research may have implications for mobile phone masts placed near borough schools.

“I think BCBC is putting its head in the sand,” said the 48-year-old, who runs a dental practice in Porthcawl.

“I want them to enter into a conversation and I think they should be considering this area of concern.”

In December, he wrote to the council asking the planning department to consider the recent Bioinitiative Report, which says phone masts near schools “can affect memory and learning”.

Following the recent deaths, Dr Fodor has written to Bridgend coroner Philip Walters outlining his concerns about the potential link between mobile phone masts and suicide.

In the letter, Dr Fodor says he believes a number of people who apparently committed suicide went to schools located close to a mobile phone mast.

A BCBC spokesman said: “Mr Trower is welcome to write to the Bridgend Local Services Board to express his concerns on this national matter.”

Expert submits report
AN EXPERT who believes mobile phones and wireless internet waves can trigger suicide has submitted his research to a health body.

Microwave expert Barrie Trower has been asked to give “published evidence” of links between microwaves and suicide for consideration in the response to the borough’s increasing suicide rates.

As reported in the Gazette in January, Mr Trower had written to the LHB outlining his research following the cluster of apparent suicides in the borough.

In a letter to Mr Trower, Dr Andrew Goodall, chief executive of the LHB, asked him to send evidence “that may aid local and national investigations into developing a strategic response” to Dr Eddie Coyle.

Dr Coyle is the LHB’s director of public health and works with the Public Health Service for Wales.

In response, Mr Trower, a scientific advisor to the Radiation Research Trust, has sent a six-page letter outlining his research.
