Oct 19, 2012   Mobile phones can cause brain tumours, court rules.

 

A landmark court case has ruled there is a link between using a mobile phone and brain tumours, paving the way for a flood of legal actions.

 

Innocente Marcolini, 60, an Italian businessman, fell ill after using a handset at work for up to six hours every day for 12 years.

 

Now Italy's Supreme Court in Rome has blamed his phone saying there is a "causal link" between his illness and phone use, the Sun has reported...

 

 "Parents need to know their children are at risk of this illness."

 

British scientists have claimed there is insufficient evidence to prove any link to mobiles.

 

But the respected oncologist and professor of environmental mutagenesis Angelo Gino Levis gave evidence for Mr Marcolini — along with neurosurgeon Dr Giuseppe Grasso.

 

They said electromagnetic radiation emitted by mobile and cordless phones can damage cells, making tumours more likely...

 

Mr Marcolini's tumour was discovered in the trigeminal nerve — close to where the phone touched his head...

According to the EPA, indoor air often contains 2-5 and up to 100 times more contaminants than outdoor air.  The problem is compounded by the fact that most Americans spend over 90% of their time indoors.  The chemical compound shown above is Chloroform and it's present in the air and water of many homes in America.  It's a disinfectant byproduct (DBP) of municipal water chlorination.  The levels are low, but ppb levels can add up to pounds of exposure over time.

 

As stated by WebMD, indoor air pollution is one of the most serious environmental threats to your health, yet no agency can regulate it, and few studies have been done about its effects on your health....

Based on existing science, many public health experts believe we may soon face an epidemic of cancers, neurological disorders (including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s) and other diseases caused by increased exposure to electromagnetic fields and radiation (EMF/EMR).  Numerous international studies conclude that EMFs and EM radiation is harmful at levels thousands of times below existing US safety standards, which are based on faulty assumptions and outdated science.

 

We are increasingly surrounded by EMFs/EMR of a wide range of frequencies, from the 60 Hz EMFs from appliances and the wiring in our walls to the radio frequency radiation from wireless routers, cordless and cell phones and nearby towers.  Cell Towers are popping up everywhere and they are increasingly designed to blend in.  The picture above shows a cell tower disguised to look like a palm tree...

A newly published peer-reviewed abstract1 documents the effective-ness of Steril-Aire UltraViolet C (UVC) Emitters in reducing ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

 

The study was performed at the Buffalo Department of Pediatrics, Neonatology, Women and Children's Hospital of Buffalo (NY) over 2.5 years. The microorganisms found in the HVAC system included Pseudomonas, Klebsiella, Serratia, Acinetobacter, Staphylococcus aureus and Coagulase-negative Staphlococcus species.

 

The study concluded that Steril-Aire germicidal UVC "eradicated microbes in HVACs and was associated with a decrease in NICU environmental pathogens and tracheal colonization."

 

Indoor Environmental Solutions (IES) is proud to be working with Steril-Aire, Inc. because they offer the best high-output ultraviolet germicidal solutions for improved indoor air quality and energy efficiency.

 

IES is the distributor for Steril-Aire in north Florida, the east coast of Georgia and South Carolina. Please contact us today for more information on how we can help you benefit from a healthier, more energy efficient indoor environment.
