NZ Documentary "Is your Cell Phone Killing You"

The IARC classification on cell phone radiation. Long overdue. It has shaken things up here in New Zealand

our documentary "Is your Cell Phone Killing You" was to air in July it will now air June 22. One of our current affairs programs ran a story using footage from
the documentary. I have included the link. Dr Black who is featured in our documentary and is a paid consultant to the teleco's has just been elected as
president of the Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS).

Black told a New Zealand reporter that he believed the question of radiation exposure risks from cell phones had been settled. "There was never a good reason to think there was a problem in the first place.

"He said that he knows what's really going on: "There's a lot of people in academic careers whose futures depend on there being a continued problem, so there's a great deal of talking up of a continued problem."

All the Best

that an expert panel at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced that long-term use of a cell phone might lead to two different types of tumors, glioma, a type of  brain cancer, and acoustic neuroma, a tumor of the auditory nerve.

Now Microwave News brings you the inside story of what  happened at the meeting, much of which has yet to be told.

The decision to designate cell phone radiation a  "possible human carcinogen" was close to unanimous --there were only two holdouts. One was from the the U.S. National Cancer Institute.

Dear Madame or Sir,

Due to unforeseen circumstances I am now being evicted from my current premises. This means I can not respond to your highly interesting and important e-mail letter. Today I have no information about when I will be back in the saddle.

I just want to take the opportunity to thank you for your interest in our research as well as support of it. Without you the world would have been a much less delightful place to live in.

I wish you the very best of GOOD LUCK for the future!

...And never forget: It is far better to die standing than to live your life on your knees.

With my very best regards

Yours sincerely
