Telecoms DO warn their investors about being held liable for harm caused by their products. In fact, last year a class action lawsuit was filed against several smartphone models. Nevertheless, it seems like more often than not, people are featured in telecom ads holding or carrying cell phones against their bodies. The bottom line: research continues to indicate that this is harmful from head to toe and everything in between.

Increased Generational Risk of Colon and Rectal Cancer in Recent Birth Cohorts under Age 40 – the Hypothetical Role of Radiofrequency Radiation from Cell Phones
by Devra L Davis , Aaron M. Pilarcik and Anthony B. Miller
“To determine if there are shifts in patterns of cancer, rates of disease can be evaluated in terms of Generational Risk (GR), comparing those born recently with those born decades earlier. Using data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Surveillance Epidemiology and End-Results (SEER) Program and Iranian cancer registries, increases in GR of colon and rectal cancer in those under age 50 are presented. For the U.S. those born in the 1990s have a doubled risk of colon cancer (GR=2) and a fourfold increase in rectal cancer (GR=4) by the time they reach age 24 compared to those born six decades ago.”
“Experimental studies have determined that the colon and rectum of Sprague-Dawley rats are exquisitely sensitive to both ionizing and non-ionizing radiofrequency radiation (RFR), expressing significant differences in patterns of methylation of a number of well-identified proteins and other biomarkers predictive of cancer risk.” “French government tests of phones positioned next to the body report exposures to non-ionizing radiation that are up to 11 times more than current guidelines. Based on these findings, it is prudent to develop policies to reduce direct exposures to RFR from cell phones, as occurs when they are kept next to the body, and to promote advances in hardware and software that reduce direct exposures to RFR.”
Last year, the World Health Organization warned that high levels of Electromagnetic Fields (aka “Electrosmog”) could lead to health issues in a significant percentage of the population. “Electrosmog” includes Bluetooth, cell phone radiation, WiFi, and 5G. Sources include wearables (ear buds, activity trackers, etc.) and other “Smart” technology like utility “Smart” Meters.
