Did you know that in June 2014 the CDC had recommended caution in cell phone use, particularly in children, after WHO-IARC classified wireless radiation as a class 2B possible carcinogen?
However a few weeks later, it removed the language regarding caution and potential risks for children. Why? Because the consultant it hired - Dr. Kenneth Foster, who has published multiple articles on wireless industry funded research showing no effects - advised against the precautions. Please take a look at the "Before" and "After" screens side by side below of the information on CDC's website regarding wireless radiation to see their original warning and then their revised warning with the precautionary language deleted. The end result was a change in advice, and a deletion of information that effectively removed any foundation for concerns.
Also in 2014 the CDC had considered adding information regarding cell tower research to its website then decided against it.
Please read the information below that was taken from http://ehtrust.org/cdc-
documents-reveal-the- minimizing-of-risk-to- children-2/ that was obtained by the EHT from over 500 internal CDC emails through the Freedom of Information Act.
“The rejection of WHO/IARC and then-CDC agency chief Dr. Portier’s advice to reduce exposures to cell phone radiation reveals a stunning disregard of science at the CDC. These internal documents show that the CDC retracted simple precautionary advice already being provided to citizens of governments in Israel, Cyprus, France and Belgium. Why are US agencies witholding this information from the public? Why was an industry-supported scientist asked to revamp CDC advice on cellphone radiation? ” stated Devra Davis PhD MPH of the Environmental Health Trust. Please watch this beautiful, short public service video produced by the government of Cyprus’ National Committee on Environment and Children’s Health to educate parents on what precautions to take https://www.youtube.com/
watch?v=H43IKNjTvRM As I watched this, I became emotional and I kept thinking how most of the people in this country have never heard of taking precautions with their wireless devices - everyday I see people and children holding cell phones to their heads and carrying them on their body.
Other governments are warning their citizens. But in this country the telecom industry spends millions each year on lobbying. Here it is up to citizens, parents, scientists and doctors who care enough to speak up relentlessly on this issue. Please share this very important information. Thank you!
