Ian Phillips was a business executive whose job required he spend many hours on a mobile phone. After learning he had a lemon-sized tumor on his brain, he started campaigning to raise awareness about the risks of using cell phones, especially by children.
Some noteworthy statements made by Ian before his passing:
My ear would be red when I left work at the end of the day. I didn’t think what it was doing to my brain.
I tell people that I am convinced my cancer was caused by using my mobile up to six hours a day.
Even my doctors won’t argue with me when I tell them how much time I was spending on it at work.
Decades of research has already proven that cell phone and WiFi radiation as well as other sources of electrical pollution (Electrosmog) is harmful to health. We have been warned about this off and on over the years.
There is still no “safe” level of exposure that has been determined for children or pregnant women because wireless technology was originally designed to be used only by military personnel for short periods of time.
The Telecom Industry (Big Wireless) continues encouraging all of us to ignore “The Precautionary Principle” with their products and infrastructure despite the fact that they are warning shareholders that they may eventually be held accountable for causing harm.
This is why “Big Wireless” keeps being compared to “Big Tobacco.”
Ian developed brain cancer where he held his phone. Exposure affects us all differently so not everyone will get brain cancer. When we use cell phones and other digital and wireless devices, we are also exposing everyone around us – including our pets – to harmful radiation.
Like many others, Ian was particularly concerned about how exposure was affecting children. We can’t expect kids to understand that these products can be harmful when adults continue providing them to them – and many schools are forcing them to use them for their school work.
Doesn’t it seem like there are more sick people – especially children – than there were 20 years ago before cell phones and other WiFi technology was used so much and by so many all the time?
The Telecom Industry will continue to make and market unsafe products and infrastructure as long as we allow this. They will also continue to control our lawmakers and elected officials until more people demand that they stop.
That’s why they keep being compared to “Big Tobacco.” It’s déjà vu all over again.
