Life Extension magazine published an excellent in-depth article on “The Hidden Dangers of Cell Phone Radiation.” The article looks at why cell
phones are dangerous and features Dr. George Carlo, the medical scientist who first headed the multimillion-dollar study on cell phone safety
funded by the telecommunications industry. Dr. Carlo’s research led to findings that weren’t to the industry’s liking, and for years has battled to
bring the truth about cell phone dangers to the public. Along the way the industry has gone on its way to discredit him and his findings, as well as
other scientists in the field.
For example, do you know that the cell phone was allowed to reach the market without pre-market testing? The FDA and other government
regulatory agencies were pressured by the communications industry to do so based on the low microwave power of the cell phone. Today DNA
damage, brain dysfunction, brain tumors, and other conditions such as sleep disorders and headaches are being linked to cell phone use. And
experts such as Dr. Carlo reveal that there may not be any safe level of electromagnetic radiation exposure. Scary, considering there are over two
billion cell phone users worldwide daily getting exposed to this danger.
This is a proverbial David vs. Goliath story, as Dr. Carlo tackles the billion-dollar industry head on. Early on, threats to his career, character assassinations,
and to top it all, his house mysteriously getting burned down, only made Dr. Carlo more resolved to warn the public. He wrote a book detailing
his story and his findings. Based on the book, a number of lawsuits were brought against the industry, and insurance carriers began excluding
cell phone-related health risks in their coverage.
