With mobile phones sold without safety checks, it is possible mobile phone technology is the 2st century tobacco.
American scientist Devra Davis is on a worldwide tour to promote her new book Disconnected. In it she lifts the lid on mounting research and an industry intent on burying it.
“I was shocked when I learned that many scientists had raised questions about the safety of cell phones decades ago,” Devra said.
But now the $3 trillion dollar global business with 4.6 billion customers worldwide is facing growing evidence of harmful effects.
“When you’re looking at animal studies and cell culture studies and combine that with human studies you see a very compelling case that heavy use of cell phones increases the risk of brain cancer,” Devra said.
In a chilling image, it is shown that mobile phone radiation absorbed into the brain of a five year old and an adult brain. We know that children’s brains are developing and exquisitely sensitive. What’s more horrifying is that this model was made by scientists working for the mobile phone industry 10 years ago.
