New Italian Study links EMFs to cancer

Dr Louis SlesinItalians Seek “Reevaluation” of EMF Safety

From Dr. Louis Slesin: Once again, power-frequency magnetic fields have been found to act as a cancer promoter.

Eighteen months ago an international team led by Elisabeth Cardis in Spain showed cancer promotion in workers exposed to chemicals and extremely low frequency (ELF) EMFs. Now an Italian team has found essentially the same promotional effect in animals exposed to ionizing radiation and ELF EMFs.

Rats, which received a single low-dose of gamma radiation early in life and were exposed to magnetic fields for their entire lifetime, developed higher than expected rates of three different types of cancer: Breast cancer and leukemia/lymphoma, as well as an extremely rare and obscure tumor, called malignant schwannoma of the heart.

The new study, which was carried out at the Ramazzini Institute in Bologna, Italy, is part of the most ambitious EMF animal project ever attempted.

  1. A recent and most comprehensive U.S. Government study made the same conclusions.

    In fact, many if not most EMF studies have found at least some increase in cancer rates. However, for one reason or another, the authors/experimentors would judge their studies “inconclusive” if the increase in cancer incidence rates were small (15%, 30% or say 50% increase.) I suppose those folks felt that unless the increase was extraordinary, stirring up a bee hive wasn’t worth it….or perhaps they were compensated for their conclusion. Anyway, if we get 100,000 children with cancer every year, what’s another 50,000? Am I right? It’s probably not worth the risk. Otherwise, some guy from Palo Alto might start working in the cubicle next to yours and every day he will remind you that you may die soon.
