Singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow announced Tuesday that she has a meningioma a type of brain tumor that is usually noncancerous.
Effects of cellphone use on children studied
Kiwi scientists will investigate whether children who regularly use mobile phones are at greater risk of brain cancer because their skulls are smaller and softer than adults'.
A group of Massey University researchers in Wellington has received government funding to find out just how vulnerable children are to the radio-frequency electromagnetic fields given off by mobile phones.
The petition was lodged following concerns about the limited powers of the local planning committees over the siting of phone masts in a number of contentious applications in Rutherglen and Cambuslang especially with regards to health issues.
Township residents against the ATC system want to join the court fight. Audrey Shapiro, one of the residents who helped form CONTACT, said the group's attorney, David Truelove, has filed petitions in both courts requesting that the citizens group be allowed to intervene on the side of the township. There's been no ruling on those requests.
By Daily Mail Reporter Vodafone and O2 are to tear down thousands of mobile phone masts, offering hope to opponents of the 'unsightly' towers. The two telecoms giants unveiled plans to share their telephone mast networks, allowing them to dismantle ...

In Canada, parents and schools are spending thousands and thousands of dollars purchasing iPads for use in homes and classrooms (even tho' they are 3 times the price of a netbook which can be wired). Toddlers are given iPads as toys and I was horrified to hear that a parent put an iPad next to a young child's pillow for bedtime stories and music. Parents need to be warned.
I have measured the microwave radiation of an iPad (with WiFi button turned on only, not browsing the internet and not downloading anything). The measurements from the WiFi-iPad spiked several times HIGHER than an iPhone on talking mode. I have also checked an iPad's magnetic field (WiFi off, just playing an already downloaded game) and it read 20 milligauss. I would like to share the following videos with you. Please feel free to test on your own. I think this danger which is fast-advancing in schools and homes across nations need to be brought to public awareness.
On the Apple forum, there have been repeated posts of complaints from people feeling dizziness and nausea after using iPad and had to return them. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2399586?start=0&tstart=0
Wi-Fi and Cellphone Radiation Comparison
Here are 2 videos to illustrate the comparison between an iPad on Wi-Fi mode and an iPhone on talking mode:
iPhone on Talking mode:
-Peaked at 19 μW/cm2 (microwatts/cm2). Most of the time measurements varied between 4-11μW/cm2.
-Continuous signal, but duration of use in talking mode likely shorter than internet browsing.
-Phone will be in direct contact with the ear and head (unless handsfree or headset are used).
-Wi-Fi was turned off on this phone.
iPad on Wi-Fi mode:
-Peaked at 70 μW/cm2; several times higher than iphone on talk mode.
-Continual signals. Stop and spike every few seconds, from 0 to 50-70 μW/cm2 every few seconds.
-Duration of use for iPad is likely longer than talk-mode on cellphone - possibly for hours a day.
-iPad will be in direct contact with the student's hands or/and lap/abdomen.
-Note that there is no Wi-Fi network available. The iPad is not even logged onto any Wi-Fi network nor downloading anything.
-The iPad is not on airplane mode but there is no SIM card in it.
* The highest I have measured of an iPad on Wi-Fi mode was actually at 90 μW/cm2, but I was not filming that time. Also, the probe of the RF meter is located in the middle of the spherical casing, about 2cm further from the outer shell of the case. As a result, the readings indicated in the video are not from "direct" contact of the iPad, which would be even higher; whereas the children's bodies would be in direct contact with the iPad - sometimes in the hands, sometimes on their laps against their reproductive organs.
