If EMF radiation posed a health risk to everyone living near a cell tower, it is a no-brainer that all cell towers should be dismantled--not just those near schools and day cares and homes for the elderly.  Quote by lawyer

Cancer is a problem for all of South Florida

Miami Herald

THE ACREAGE - A study that identifies the bottom third of Florida as a massive Brain Cancer cluster has set off a firestorm among Acreage residents worried about their community's reputation. They insist that the report, which surfaced on the Internet last month, is proof that Cancer isn't a problem solely for their central Palm Beach County community, where health officials last month declared a cluster of cases among children and teenagers. They have besieged state legislators, health...

The study found that in 2006 and 2007, South Florida had more than twice as many childhood brain tumors and cancers as would be expected in that size population: 52 cases instead of 24.

Electromagnetic Pulses May Stem Arthritic Knee Pain

Electromagnetic pulses from a portable device can significantly reduce pain and inflammation in people suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee, a new study suggests.

Researchers gave a battery-operated device to 34 people, who used it to emit a low-intensity, pulsating, electromagnetic frequency to their knees. The participants experienced pain relief of more than 40 percent on the first day of treatment, according to the study.

The approach has no side effects, is "relatively low-cost in the long-run and the onset of pain relief is immediate," Dr. Fred Nelson, associate program director for research and director of the Osteoarthritis Center at Henry Ford Hospital, said in a hospital news release. "We look at electromagnetic pulses as a potential way to improve quality of life and independence for those who suffer from osteoarthritis of the knee."

The electromagnetic pulses are thought to reduce the level of calcium in cartilage cells and set off a process that reduces inflammation.

"We are really fine-tuning what we are doing to the cell environment with a very specific pulse sequence and frequency," Nelson said.

For the study, people wore the device around their knees for 15 minutes, twice a day for six weeks.

Nelson was scheduled to present the findings at the annual meeting of the Orthopaedic Research Society, March 6 to 9 in New Orleans. The study was funded by Ivivi Health Sciences, which developed the device.
