Scientists Link Eye Cancer to Mobile Phones

Scientists Link Eye Cancer to Mobile Phones

by Jonathan Leake, Science Editor

MOBILE phones have been linked to human cancer in a scientific study for the first time. The research suggests there is a threefold increase in eye cancers among people who regularly use the devices. The results will cause concern within the mobile telecoms industry.

The radiation emitted from mobile phones has long been known temporarily to alter the workings of brain cells but there was previously no evidence of permanent damage to health.

If confirmed by subsequent research, the finding could lead to thousands of costly lawsuits by people with eye and possibly brain cancers.

More than 20 million people in Britain have mobile phones.

The research, published in the journal Epidemiology, was carried out by a team from the University of Essen, in Germany. It investigated a form of eye cancer called uveal melanoma, in which tumours form in the layer that makes up the iris and base of the retina.

Dr Andreas Stang, who led the research, said he had examined 118 people with uveal melanoma and obtained details about their use of digital mobile phones. This was compared with a control group of 475 people without the disease.

To prevent bias, the researchers were not told if the person theywere examining suffered from cancer or was healthy. When the results were analysed they found the cancer victims had a much higher rate of mobile phone use, though Stang cautions that his study needs confirmation.

The mechanism by which the radiation might cause cancer is uncertain but it is known that the watery contents of the eye assists the absorption of radiation. Other research showed that cells called melanocytes found in the uveal layer started growing and dividing more rapidly when exposed to microwave radiation.

Since uveal melanoma starts within such cells, there is a ready-made mechanism by which mobile phone radiation might help to initiate cancer, especially in people with a genetic predisposition to the condition.

Last year the Stewart inquiry into mobile phone safety, appointed by the government, found no evidence to link the devices with brain tumours or any other disorder. However, last month saw the launch of multi-billion-pound lawsuits against Verizon Horizon, an American mobile phone company 45% owned by Vodaphone, the biggest British provider. Customers claim they got brain tumours and other conditions from using the devices.

Vodaphone said it welcomed new research but there was still no positive evidence that mobile phones harmed health.

A Brave New World: The Internet of Things (IoT)

In Aldous Huxley’s classic 1931 SciFi novel Brave New World he envisions a dystopian society where human life has been almost entirely industrialized — controlled by a few people at the top of a World State. A future where human beings are socially conditioned (or programmed) according to the society’s strict caste system, an antiseptic and dehumanized society.

And now consider another brave new world as envisioned by Google’s Eric Schmidt(1) and Jared Cohen (2) in The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business

How do you stop a man like Donald Trump from entering the White House? Hold a secret meeting on a far-away island between billionaires, Republicans and big tech CEOs in the hope he’ll go away.

According to the Huffington Post, the tech elite in attendance includes Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google co-founder Larry Page, the creator of Napster and Facebook investor Sean Parker, as well as billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk of Tesla Motors. A New York Times spokeswoman also confirmed its editor recently attended the American Enterprise Institute’s annual World Forum conference.However, the conference is fiercely off the record, so it’s not really known what was talked about or by whom. However, the speculation that the tech giants joined discussions on how to stop US presidential front runner Donald Trump from reaching the White House will get tongues wagging.

The annual meeting is held on a private island resort off the coast of Georgia and closed to the press. An email written about the event and sent by Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol reportedly said:

“A specter was haunting the World Forum — the specter of Donald Trump. There was much unhappiness about his emergence, a good deal of talk, some of it insightful and thoughtful, about why he’s done so well, and many expressions of hope that he would be defeated… The key task not, to once again paraphrase Karl Marx, is less to understand Trump than to stop him.”

Trump has nearly one-third of the delegates he needs to secure the Republican Party nomination but faces big tests in the forthcoming Florida and Ohio primaries.

Meanwhile, a much smaller event in Britain, held on the record for politicians, religious figures and members of the Muslim community, made it no secret naming Donald Trump “UK Islamophobe of the year, 2016.”

The spoof ceremony hosted by the Islamic Human Rights Commission announced Trump as the winner, mainly because of his campaign to stop Muslims from entering the US.
