Colorectal Cancer and The Great Sperm Decline, Could It Be Related To Cell Phone Radiation?
The good news: Colo-rectal cancer is dramatically dropping in persons over age 60 in many industrial countries. The puzzling bad news: Rates of rectal cancer have quadrupled in young adults under age 24 in the past decade in the U.S. and Iran and risen rapidly in the U.K, Egypt and Brazil. Increased screening is believed to explain much of the welcome decline in the elderly. But why has this very rare cancer become four times less rare and much more lethal in young adults?
A recent study documents these baffling increases in generational risk of cancer and provides one important clue about what could underlie them. The 4-fold increase in rectal cancer over the last decade in American young adults could very well be from cell phone radiation.
Those now in their 20s are the first generation to have grown up with phones, laptops, videogames and other microwave wireless radiating devices clutched close to their bodies, sometimes day and night. With the advent of wireless headsets and earpieces, more and more children and young adults keep transmitting smartphones inside their tight clothing for hours a day.
Colo-rectal cancer cells are exquisitely sensitive to RF and research has found that the effect of exposure to nonionizing mobile phone radiation can lead to impacts on treated colon tissues of rats similar to effects from ionizing 3Gy gamma radiation.
In 2019, after a number of scientific studies in animals and humans showing that microwave radiation damages both male and female reproduction, and most phones they tested were found to exceed radiation limits, French government issued new regulations so that consumers are informed to “keep radio equipment away from the belly of pregnant women” and “away from the lower abdomen of adolescents.”
Mt. Sinai Medical Professor Shanna Swan has spent her distinguished career documenting the myriad ways that environmental chemicals affect the capacity of men and women to have healthy children when they choose to do so. In her important new book, “Count Down: How Our Modern World Is Threatening Sperm Counts, Altering Male and Female Reproductive Development, and Imperiling the Future of the Human Race,” co-authored with Stacey Colino, she projects that persisting declines in sperm quantity…
