Does “Consensus Science” Deny EMF Cancer Risks; Why Don’t Government Agencies Challenge Vested Interests?
This is not any easy piece for me to write because I know from researching electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) and radiofrequencies (RFs) scientific literature, the damage that can be done to human health.
Recently, Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. Didn’t Senator McCain’s staff announce on July 19th that the Senator has a brain tumor called a “glioblastoma”?
PRESS RELEASE N° 208 31 May 2011
IARC CLASSIFIES RADIOFREQUENCY ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS AS POSSIBLY CARCINOGENIC TO HUMANS
Lyon, France, May 31, 2011 ‐‐ The WHO/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer1, associated with wireless phone use.
The IARC of the World Health Organization produced the report Non-ionizing Radiation, Part 2: Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields Volume 102 [480 pages], which addresses cancers in humans and cancer of the brain.
However, information from 2008 prompts me to wonder and also to ask if the two cell towers on Senator McCain’s Sedona ranch could have contributed non-thermal radiation waves, which are known factors that contribute to and/or can cause cancerous brain tumors, as rodent studies  confirm.
Back in October 2008, The Washington Post published “EXCLUSIVE: Verizon and AT&T Provide Cell Towers for McCain Ranch.” According to that Post article,
Instead, Verizon delivered a portable tower known as a “cell site on wheels” – free of charge – to the McCain property in June, after the Secret Service began inquiring about improving coverage in the area. Such devices are used for providing temporary capacity where coverage is lacking or has been knocked out, in circumstances ranging from the Super Bowl to hurricanes.
After a request from Cindy McCain, Verizon Wireless proposed installing a cell tower close to the couple’s home near Sedona, Ariz.
In July, AT&T followed suit, wheeling in a portable tower for free to match Verizon’s offer. “This is an unusual situation,” AT&T spokeswoman Claudia B. Jones said. “You can’t have a presidential nominee in an area where there is not cell coverage.”
Ethics lawyers said Cindy McCain’s dealings with the wireless companies stand out because her husband is a senior member of the Senate commerce committee, which oversees the Federal Communications Commission and the telecommunications industry. He has been a leading advocate for industry-backed legislation, fighting regulations and taxes on telecommunication services.
Everyone, especially the U.S. Federal Communications Commission and states public utility commissions, ought to realize and seriously consider the adverse health consequences from placing microwave towers just about anywhere, including on school grounds, on top roofs and water towers, and in fake trees.
A new report by the Swedish Radiation Protection Foundation, Stralskyddsstiftelsen, has concluded that ever-increasing rates of both brain and central nervous system (CNS) tumors, particularly in Denmark, may be caused by persistent exposure to radiation from mobile phones, microwaves, and other “smart” technology devices that pervade modern society.
Authorities in the US, Sweden, and elsewhere can deny all they want the correlative, and potentially causative, links between the use of smart devices and cancer, but the science speaks for itself. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of published studies and reports that show cancer rates increasing right alongside smart device usage.
For instance, a report by EMFWise Health Effects of Wireless Radiation states that, because microwave radiation can directly penetrate the body, there are serious immune risks associated with the use of these appliances. Some of these risks include alterations of immune cells, changes in lymphocytes, reduced lymphocyte count and hypersensitivity that manifests as autoimmunity.
Non-thermal microwave radiation directly impacts water, it turns out, and the human body is made up of as much as 70 percent water. When interacting with this radiation, the water in the human body is disrupted, which in turn disrupts the complex communications apparatus that exists in the body’s cellular network, which uses water to send and receive information. 
[Incidentally, the human brain’s water content is around 73 to 78 percent!]
Other high-tech influences due to microwave RFs that possibly could have impacted Senator McCain’s health problem include his personal cell phone use patterns; exposure to Wi-Fi gigahertz frequencies in Senate and other government buildings in Washington, DC; and even airplane travel with its Wi-Fi routers not too far above people’s heads. Check out this website about airplane Wi-Fi security and how to be safe from being hacked while using inflight Wi-Fi .
Even the National Education Association has been concerned about hazardous electromagnetic fields.
The National Education Association believes that all educational facilities must have healthy indoor air quality, be smoke-free, be safe from environmental and chemical hazards, and be safe from hazardous electromagnetic fields.
Students and/or their parents/guardians, education employees, and the public should be notified of actual and potential hazards.
School districts should conduct periodic testing for harmful water and airborne particles/agents that are detrimental to the health of students and education employees and shall report the results publicly.
The Association also believes in the development and enforcement of health and safety standards specifically for children. Read Section C-19 of the NEA 2013-2014 Resolutions 
Cell phones are not the only appliances that emit/transmit microwaves; AMI Smart Meters do, too, and in the gigahertz (GHz) ranges! That’s another factor to be considered since smart meters waves emit RFs into homes 24/7/365 from the two-way ZigBee radio transmitters used to search for; hook up with; and surveil all smart appliances in homes.
In my pro se court case before the PA PUC’s Administrative Law Court, one of the Judges queried PECO’s expert about that very issue. Here’s how that went taken from the official court transcript:
- Furthermore, Mr. Pritchard in answering His Honor Judge Pell’s questioning stated, “It could be once every five minutes to once every hour or maybe once a day depending on what the device – whether it would be a smart thermostat, a dishwasher as you mentioned or maybe an in-home display device.” Cf. Transcript Pg. 169 (1-5)
- Judge Pell then remarked, “I understand you to say that, if it doesn’t connect with anything, it pulses every 30 seconds?” PECO employee and expert Pritchard states, “It continues to seek that, yes.” Whereas, His Honor Judge Pell then asks, “Indefinitely or will it decide, okay, I’m not finding anything, stop? Can that be adjusted?” Mr. Pritchard replied, “No.” Judge Pell queries further, “No. Does it have to be that way?” Mr. Pritchard replied, “We have no options with that.” Cf. Transcript Pg. 169 (1-17)
Everyone—bar none—is affected by microwave technologies radiofrequencies, so that industry, plus federal and state regulatory agencies, must be made responsible for updating their consensus science to recognize and factor in the non-thermal radiation waves and the harms they cause.
“More studies needed” apparently is that industry’s mantra to forestall the inevitable they apparently know about. How many more studies have to be done since 32 percent of microwave-industry-funded-studies CONFIRM non-ionizing radiation harms? That’s not enough? Furthermore, why did a Judge order California to release papers discussing risks of cell phone use?
Other high-profile politicians who contracted cancerous brain tumors were Senator Edward M. Kennedy, who died of a glioblastoma in 2009 and Beau Biden, former Vice-President Joe Biden’s son, who died of the same brain cancer in 2015.
Certainly, everyone wishes Senator McCain wellness. However, his high-profile medical condition ought to persuade Washington movers-and-shakers to reconsider and to reevaluate pushing more high tech, e.g., 5G, plus what’s really going on with EMFs/RFs non-thermal microwave radiation super-saturating the atmosphere creating electrosmog pollution.
Does anybody really care that brain cancers are on the rise, and that kids  are contracting more brain cancers?
