The latest blog entry from Dariusz Leszczynski:
HELSINKI, April 7, 2012″”What is health? Society went a long way from the definition of health by Hippocrates, “Father of Medicine,” to the current definition by the World Health Organization (WHO). It reflects not only change in medical sciences but also change in our ways of perception of the surrounding world. Hippocrates provided us with “the humoral theory of health, whereby the four bodily fluids, or humors, of blood, phlegm, yellow bile, and black bile needed to be kept in balance. Illness was caused when these fluids became out of balance, sometimes requiring the reduction in the body of a humor through bloodletting or purging.”
The WHO defines health as “a complete state of physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Using the WHO definition of health, which speaks of “mental and social well-being,” it is reasonable to argue that cell phones, either as source of radiation or as social communication gadget or both, are detrimental to human health.
Development of new wireless technologies is like the speed of Formula 1 racing car. Why? Because it brings large profit. Research on health effects of these new technologies is at the speed of Amish horse carriage going through road with lots of speed bumps. Why? Because it may slow down profitability.
