It is time for my annual rant to get people to quit using the phrase 4th of July for just another excuse to drink and eat and draw attention to the reasons for celebrating Independence Day.
I hope this weekend brings you and your family some time together. Maybe for just a few days, all of who say they are happy to be living in the United States of America can reflect on the common issues that bring us together this weekend.
If I have made you feel guilty about using the 4th of July as an excuse to drink and over eat, you still have Cinco de Mayo, that's Spanish for "Fifth of May." Most American's are clueless as to the significance of that day in Mexican history. Since I do not celebrate Mexican history, I do have no need to drink and over eat on Cinco de Mayo, or explain the significance of the 5th of May.
The report is not someone's opinion, it is a multiyear, peer-reviewed study that found low incidences of two types of tumors in male rats exposed to type of radio frequencies commonly emitted by cellphones
“Where people were saying there’s no risk, I think this ends that kind of statement,” said Ron Melnick, who ran the NTP project until retiring in 2009 and recently reviewed the study’s results.
What's the harm in some cautious concern?
I have worked in various forms of radio technology. I worked in nuclear, biological, and chemical defense. There are numerous studies raising concerns about the potential dangers of exposure to EMF, Electromagnetic Fields. I wonder what are the long term risks to continuous exposure.
There are many more types of various wireless technology and EMF in our environment today than there was 30 years ago. Do you ever wonder about possible health risks? I've always said when it comes to various forms of wireless technology, what's the harm in some cautious concern?
Like many dangers in our world, the risks are often dismissed as nothing serious. I've made comments in various online forums over the years that I don't think people should quickly dismiss the possible health risks. But the internet is full of experts with opinions. Because I don't have a degree in physics or medicine my remarks raising questions on the possible health risks are often jumped on by "experts" who quickly state, "No. Not at all. It's not possible."
