Safe Cell Phone Study Funded by Manufacturers

An international study that appeared to contradict recent findings that used cell phones play a possible role in the development of brain cancer was funded by wireless manufacturers, it has been revealed.  Radio frequency was classified as a possible carcinogenic by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer, only to be contradicted by the International Commission of Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, a group of scientists from Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States, who this week claimed that there was mounting proof that cell phone signals did not cause cancer at all.  Now however, it has emerged that much of the funding into their study came from the wireless industry.
While the IARC claim that the source of funding had no bearing on their findings, there are a large number of people who find that very hard to believe, especially in the light of the increasing number of studies, including that made by the World Health Organization, whose findings have the exact opposite conclusion.  The study has been slammed as being “misleading” and “wrong” by Dr Devra Davis, the US scientist behind the not for profit organization Environmental Trust.  “It is propaganda,” Davis alleges of the wireless industry funded study.  “The larger issue is they don’t know they are completely wrong about the statement that because there is no increase in brain cancer now, cell phones don’t cause brain cancer.  That is flat out wrong.” Davis is urging governments to act now, not in future years when there are “enough sick people or dead bodies”.
