Americans' brains being fried by cell towers: New scientific evidence reveals shocking extent of electropollution damage

Exposure to cell phone towers alters brain function in alarming ways, causing a lack of concentration, irritability, difficulty sleeping and lack of appetite. That's the conclusion of a new study just published by the British Medical Journal.(1)

I think there's something to it.

But...I think the massive amounts of pills people take are far more responsible for the death of the American brain.

The study is based on 88 individuals who weren't randomized, but who themselves decided to take part in the study. That's really bad science.

They should be more worried about the sun and UV damage, there are no scientific studies to support this so called study.

The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has said this about cell phone towers near homes or schools:
“Radiofrequency emissions from antennas used for cellular and PCS [personal communications service] transmissions result in exposure levels on the ground that are typically thousands of times below safety limits. These safety limits were adopted by the FCC based on the recommendations of expert organizations and endorsed by agencies of the Federal Government responsible for health and safety. Therefore, there is no reason to believe that such towers could constitute a potential health hazard to nearby residents or students.”

Yes, the FCC only has the citizens health as its main concern.

Buying that?

About RF radiation

Some of the agencies that classify cancer-causing exposures have made statements about radiofrequency radiation.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified RF fields as “possibly carcinogenic to humans,” based on limited evidence of a possible increase in risk for brain tumors among cell phone users, and inadequate evidence for other types of cancer. (For more information on the IARC classification system, see our document, Known and Probable Human Carcinogens.)

There is no evidence of loss of appetite. I mean, have you been to the mall and observe those 300 - 400 pounders walking around looking for food?
