The Danger of Cell Phone Radiation

Calling all cell phone users!

There is evidence of a new risk of cancer from your mobile device.

A study, published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, found that those who held a handset to their ear for several hours a day (an average of 22 hours per month) were 50-percent more likely to develop a tumor in the parotid gland.

The parotid gland is the largest of the salivary glands. Historically, salivary gland cancer was a very rare occurrence.

However, the proximity of the glands to the phone has been of particular interest to scientists concerned about the radio-frequency radiation emitted from cell devices since their popularity soared over a decade ago.

As part of an international Interphone Study, Dr. Siegal Sadetzki, an epidemiologist at Tel Aviv University, lead a team to investigate nearly 500 people who had been diagnosed with salivary gland tumors. The data was compared to 1300 healthy subjects.

A significant part of the study is that it was conducted in Israel.

"Unlike people in other countries, Israelis were quick to adopt cell phone technology and have continued to be exceptionally heavy users,"
Sadetzki said. "Therefore, the amount of exposure to the radio frequency radiation found in this study has been higher than in previous cell phone studies."

That may mean that the Israeli test shows the results of cell phone use at an accelerated rate compared to other populations.

Sadetzki does note that more information is necessary to draw a definitive conclusion. However, she also cautions people to 'monitor their conversations' until the proof is in.

Children and young adults need to especially aware since they are seen to be more vulnerable to the effects of radiation. It has also been noted that rural users may have a higher risk since their mobile devices put off increased radiation to compensate for weaker signals.

Dr. Robert O. Young, a research scientist at the pH Miracle Living Center, states, "the parotid gland is responsible for secreting sodium bicarbonate to alkalize the food and liquids ingested. When this gland is being radiated with cells phones the pH of the saliva before ingesting of food or drink and after ingesting of food or drink is highly compromised. When the food and drink is not alkalized by the alkaline secretions from the parotid gland this can lead to a cancerous condition. That is why I suggest maintaining mouth pH at 7.2 or greater. This can be done by drinking 4 grams of sodium bicarbonate in
8 ounces of 9.5 alkalized water. The additional benefits of drinking sodium bicarbonate water are as follows:

1) Increased pH of the extra-cellular body fluids.
2) Buffering of metabolic and dietary acids.
3) Protection against metabolic and dietary acids.
4) Buffering of HCL in the stomach that can cause nausea, ulcers and stomach cancer.
5) Alkalizing of the food chyme in the small intestine.
6) Support of the stomach in its production of sodium bicarbonate.
7) Helping to maintain the body's alkaline design and thus preventing sickness and dis-ease."
