With great sadness, on August 25th, 2018 RF Safe’s rapidly growing list of political brain tumor deaths potentially linked to wireless radiation exposure grew to include the very honored Senator John McCain who has succumbed to his GBM (Glioblastoma) diagnosis.

McCain joins political figures such as Sen. Edward M. Kennedy who died in 2009 from a GBM on Aug 25th, exactly nine years before McCain passed from the same brain tumor type on the same date. Undoubtedly ironic passing from the same disease on the same day.

Joseph “Beau” Biden III, son of Joe Biden, the current president of the USA died from a GBM in 2015.

While both Biden and Kennedy used their phone on the same side as their tumors. McCain was always seen using modern phones in his right hand yet his GBM was on the left side of his head. He was left-handed, and one image has surfaced with McCain holding an old school early generation cell phone in his left hand.

However, McCain’s cell phone wasn’t his worst microwave exposure, a decade ago the New York Times reported that AT&T and Verizon both installed GSM cellular towers at McCain’s Ranch. Knowing this fact puts McCain’s exposure distinctly in the excessive far-field exposure category studied by the Ramazzini Institute where Biden and Kennedy GBM’s relate to the near-field exposure study published by the NTP. Both studies published in 2018 implicate the Glial and Schwann cells as targets for cell phone radiation exposure.

Recent Politician Deaths Coincide With World’s Largest Rat Studies

Two of the world’s most substantial rodent studies decades in the making was released in 2018, a near-field exposure experiment performed in the USA by National Toxicology Program and the Italian Ramazzini Far-field study both suggesting that near-field exposure and far-field exposures were attributed to the promotion of this type of almost always fatal brain tumor.

In the USA the NTP’s near-field study simulated full body exposure at close proximity to the source of radiation. Near-field is the type of exposure a user gets when the phone is held next to the body, and the tumor from excessive near-field exposure usually is in close proximity to where a cell phone is used next to the body.

The Italian Ramazzini Institute’s Far-field study also simulated full body exposure farther from the source of radiation at lower intensities. Far-field is the type of exposure a user gets when living next to a cell phone tower even at an unobstructed line of sight distance, and the tumors from excessive far-field exposure matched the same cell types that were most susceptible to cancer as found by the NTP in their Near-field study.

McCain was clearly exposed to excessive far-field radiation via the two cell phone towers on his property — Biden and Kennedy were predominantly exposed to near-field radiation from their cell phones directly. Hence tumor location for excessive far-field radiation can hypothetically be anywhere Glial and Schwann cells are found in the body and less likely to be related to near-field exposure. If excessive far-field exposure isn’t present, RF-induced tumors will remain close to the source of RF exposure, ie where the cell phone is used against the body.

“The thermal and non-thermal dividing line, where thermally based testing is currently used as the basis for safety standards of radio frequency radiation exposures (SAR) is no more than a red herring,” a distraction from the public’s understanding of the actual health effects of microwave radio frequency radiation and therefore our ability to protect the public. It increasingly appears invalid to distinguish ionizing from non-ionizing radiation, as well as near and far-field exposures with respect to health effects.” John Coates, Founder, RF Safe Corp

The Global Rise in Glioblastoma Brain Tumors

“Rates of GBM’s More Than Doubled Between 1995 and 2015”

The issue of whether brain tumor rates are static or rising is more complicated than the media or wireless industry would have us believe. It’s true that the overall incidence of brain tumors has not been changing much, but a different picture emerges if one looks, carefully, at what types of brain tumors are rising around the world.

The incidence rate of GBM, the most aggressive and quickly fatal brain tumor, is rising dramatically in England, Netherlands, and USA while the rates for lower grade tumors have decreased, masking this dramatic trend in the overall data

The incidence rate for the total group of gliomas increased, with a decrease of anaplastic and unspecified tumors and an increase of glioblastoma.

The graph below which shows how the total number of malignant brain tumors (black line) has remained relatively steady, concealing the increase in GBM (red line).

The doctors leading the study do not know what is causing the increase in GBM, but they reject improved diagnosis because these tumors are generally fatal and are very rarely missed. “We suggest that widespread environmental or lifestyle factors may be responsible,” they write.

One possible factor is the widespread use of cell phones and cell phone towers.

“When we looked at the incidence of GBM tumors we found an even more dramatic rise in frontal and temporal regions of the brain. This raises the suspicion that mobile phone use may be promoting gliomas.” Philips told us (see figure below). “Indeed, our findings support previous work by Lennart Hardell’s group in Sweden.”

“The new paper adds further evidence for the increased risk of glioma associated with mobile phone use,” Hardell told us by e-mail from Örebro, Sweden. “It is in agreement with previous epidemiological findings of a higher glioma risk in humans using mobile phones and certainly also with the recent RF–animal studies from America and Italy.”

Dr. Vini Khurana, a neurosurgeon that presented what it termed “an increasing body of evidence for a link between mobile phone usage and certain brain tumors” and that it “is anticipated that this danger has far broader public health ramifications than asbestos and smoking.”

A publication titled “Public health implications of wireless technologies” cites that Lennart Hardell found age is a significant factor. The report repeated the finding that the use of cell phones before age 20 increased the risk of brain tumors by 5.2, compared to 1.4 for all ages. A review by Hardell et al. concluded that current mobile phones are not safe for long-term exposure. http://download.journals.elsevierhealth.com/pdfs/journals/0928-4680/PIIS0928468009000091.pdf
