Thus the Times (again) reveals itself not as a newspaper, in service to the public interest, but as a propaganda instrument for cellphone mogul Carlos Slim, the Times' biggest shareholder; the Times's business partner Verizon; and all the cellphone giants among the Times's mighty advertisers.*
"Mainstream scientists continue to see no evidence of harm from cellphone radio waves,"the Times's William Broad assures us in a splashy piece that came out yesterday:https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/16/science/5g-cellphones-wireless-cancer.html
“If phones are linked to cancer, we’d expect to see a marked uptick,” David Robert Grimes, a cancer researcher at the University of Oxford, wrote recently in The Guardian. “Yet we do not.”
While all due respect to Dr. Grimes (whose research funding ought to be investigated),"we do" see "a marked uptick" in cellphone-related cancers—brain cancers in particular,and others now dramatically afflicting young people the world over, as "mainstreamscientists" have long since pointed out:
- The US CDC presented new findings in 2018 of increasing brain, renal, hepatic, and thyroid cancers among individuals under 20 years old in the USA after analyzing 2001–2014 data from 48 states covering 98% of the US population. Siegel 2018
- The incidence of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the deadliest type of brain tumor and linked to cell phone use- more than doubled in England between 1995 and 2015, according to a new analysis of national statistics published in 2018 in the Journal of the Environment and Public Health.
- The American Brain Tumor Association’s largest, most comprehensive US analysis to date, found the incidence of anaplastic astrocytoma, tumors of the meninges, tumors of the sellar region and unclassified tumors have increased in young adults 15-35.
- A 2015 published analysis that looked at 2000-2010 data from the United States Cancer Statistics publication and the Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States found significant increases in malignant and nonmalignant central nervous system tumors among adolescents and and also significant increases in acute lymphocytic leukemia, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and malignant central nervous system tumors in children.
- In 2016 the Cancer Prevention Institute of California’s Annual Report reported an increase in the incidence of glioblastomas in non Hispanic white males and females in the the greater San Francisco Bay area.
- In 2012 Zada et al found the incidence of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) increased in the frontal and temporal lobes, and in the cerebellum among adults in the U.S. from 1992-2006.
- A 2014 published Dutch analysis (Ho et .al.) also found increases in GBMs.
- A 2011 published study looking at brain tumor incidence in Australia data found a significant increasing incidence in GBM, particularly after 2006 (Dobes 2011).
- The National Cancer Institute reported that glioma incidence in the frontal lobe increased among young adults 20-29 years of age (Inskip et al., 2010).
- Hardell and Carlberg (2017) reported that in Sweden brain tumors of unknown type increased from 2007-2015, especially in the age group 20-39 years of age during 2007–2015 and they state, “this may be explained by higher risk for brain tumor in subjects with first use of a wireless phone before the age of 20 years taking a reasonable latency period.”
- The Danish Cancer Society reported a doubling in the number of men diagnosed with glioblastoma over the last ten years.
- According to a 2018 analysis of Swedish Cancer Registry data by the Swedish Radiation Protection Foundation -Cancers in the head and the neck are increasing in Sweden according to the latest cancer incidence data from the Swedish Cancer Registry (2018) Cancers in the thyroid and the mouth are among the cancers that have seen the sharpest rise during the last decade but also the trend for cancers of the pituitary are on the rise. Among men aged 50 -79 years malignant brain tumours, grade 3-4 are also increasing visibly. The increase of these cancers has coincided with increasing use of mobile phones during the same time period while the increasing trend of malignant brain tumours, gliomas, might be an effect of long term use of mobile phones.
And so there obviously has been "a marked uptick" in cellphone-related cancer. How is it, then, that Dr. Grimes and his accomplices at Oxford don't (or won't) perceive it?
Such blindness tells us that there's something very wrong with him, and with the university employing him—and with both the Guardian and the New York Times, whose running his Big Lie as gospel truth identifies makes both those "great newspapers" corporate criminals, whose "journalism" is an existential danger to humanity.
