Some Brain Tumors Really Are Caused by Cell Phones and Wifi

There is no longer any question that some brain tumours are caused by electromagnetic radiation (ER) emitted from cell phones and other wireless communications devices. The actual hazards of cell-phone use are finally being examined after decades of denial and an exponential increase in both use and brain cancer.

The American Cancer Society says that cellphones “don't have enough energy to cause cancer by directly damaging the DNA” [American Cancer Society, Cellular Phones]. Which sounds pretty conclusive until also say that “Cancer is a complex group of diseases with many possible causes” [American Cancer Society, What Causes Cancer?] not just damaged DNA. This is the same kind of Double Speak we used to hear from government agencies during their century long collusion with tobacco industry. [Saloojee, 2000]

But now governments are stepping up and changing their minds. In a landmark decision in 2017, the Supreme Court of Italy has ruled that there is a causal relationship between electromagnetic radiation and some cancers, and gave Roberto Romeo a state-funded pension as the result of his brain tumour, which they claim was caused by using a cell phone he used for 3-4 hours per day for 15 years, as part of his employment. [Agence Presse-France, 2017]

The National Institute of Environmental Heath Sciences (US Department of Health and Human Services) has also released preliminary findings of it’s analysis of rats subjected to ER, in order to determine whether or not it is a potential human carcinogen. The study concluded that there was "an increase in some brain cancers as the result of ER". [Mackar, 2016]
