Child leukemia MF in homes

WARNING!  EMF radiation from this PC depletes your bioenergy! Get protection for your safety!


Your body has an energy signalling system that's vital for its proper function. See Energy Systems.  You need to protect it!
Don't exposure yourself to EMFs without protection. You wouldn't expose yourself to the sun for hours - you'd get skin cancer soon enough.  EMF is invisible and every day EMF stress affects your body putting your health at risk; a wide range of symptoms result. Just read What Doctors warnEMF radiation depletes bioenergy, compromising your immune system! There is a cumulative effect. Take advantage of my website to find out more about these modern day hazards.
An amazing new protection that really works is now available with GIA Wellness. You can avoid adverse health risks and enjoy a New Generation of Wellness in an increasingly electropolluted world. Electropollution is a real environmental toxin.

Especially don't expose your child to EMFs. They have a lifetime more to bear this and the full extent of risks is not yet known!


Childhood leukemia and magnetic fields in Japan:  A case-control study of childhood leukemia and residential power-frequency magnetic fields in Japan

Magnetic fields have been linked to childhood cancer in many countries and now it's also been shown in Japan.

Michinori Kabuto, of the National Institute of Environmental Studies in Ibaraki, along with a number of collaborators have found that children exposed to 4mG (0.4T) or more in their bedrooms had close to five times more leukemia than those living in low-exposure homes.  This statistically significant finding appears in the August 1st, 2006 issue of the International Journal of Cancer  (Volume 119, Issue 3, Pages 643-650).

One big advantage of this study is that it's the first to measure residential magnetic fields over the course of a full week, rather than just 24 hours as was the case, for instance, in the 1997 U.S. National Cancer Institute study.  These extra measurements show that there was a great deal of variation in homes with high-field levels.

Kabuto explains that when he compared the leukemia risk for each of the seven days separately, the leukemia risk on the highest exposure day was nearly twice that for the lowest exposure day.  That's a big difference and could explain some of the inconsistencies in past studies.

On the negative side, the participation rate for the controls was less than 30%, which is extremely low.  Kabuto was well aware that this could have played havoc wih his entire study and he did what he could to investigate its implications. "Selection bias per se cannot fully explain our positive finding," he concludes.

Whatever its strength and weaknesses, the Japanese study is the last major epidemiological study of EMFs and childhood leukemia we can expect for a long time.  Decisions concerning the adoption of precautionary policies will have to be made with the information we now have in hand.

Abstract:

Residential power-frequency magnetic fields (MFs) were labeled as a possible human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer panel.  In response to great public concern, the World Health Organization urged that further epidemiologic studies be conducted in high-exposure areas such as Japan.

We conducted a population-based case-control study, which covered areas inhabited by 54% of Japanese children.

We analyzed 312 case children (0-15 years old) newly diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) or acute myelocytic leukemia (AML) in 1999-2001 (2.3 years) and 603 controls matched for gender, age and residential area.

Weekly mean MF level was determined for the child's bedroom.  MF measurements in each set of a case and controls were carried out as closely in time as possible to control for seasonal variation.  We evaluated the association using conditional logistic regression models.  The odds ratios for children whose bedrooms had MF levels of 0.4 T or higher compared with the reference category (MF levels below 0.1 T) was 2.6 (95% CI = 0.76-8.6) for AML + ALL and 4.7 (1.15-19.0) for ALL only.

Controlling for some possible confounding factors did not alter the results appreciably.  Even an analysis in which selection bias was maximized did not fully explain the association.

Most of the leukemia cases in the highest exposure category had MF levels far above 0.4 T.  Our results provided additional evidence that high MF exposure was associated with a higher risk of childhood leukemia, particularly of ALL.

You have a sophisticated body electronics system that is vital to its function.  So don't allow yourself to be exposed to health risks invisibly imposed by EMF radiation from electric & magnetic fields and pulsed microwave transmission signals, which are at frequencies that disrupt your brain and cellular functions.  Cellphone and cordless phone use does carry well-established risks!  EMF stress occurs with all other electric and electronic devices, too.  There are adverse health effects - see What Doctors Warn.  Scientific studies have shown that EMF exposure has a cumulative effect, increasing over time.   Be sure to reduce the risks for your children who face a lifetime of exposure and those with poorer health conditions, they are especially at risk.  For an appreciation of this start at Child Risks.

Depletion of your body's bioenergy causes a lowered energetic capability, at a fundamental atomic level.  See Atoms & EMF.  Disturbance of it's inherent bioenergetic system results in disruptions to cellular functions and a compromised immune system.  Start at Energy Systems.  Quite simply, your body systems are no longer able to work in the way that they would if such destructive interference from EMR was not imposed on you.  To see how human energies are affected by common electronic devices see bioenergy test charts showing patterns typical of that experienced by everyone from Human Tests.

If you can't understand why the authorities are allowing you to be exposed to such risks, start at my Research page.  So-called "safety" regulations only consider thermal (tissue heating) effects, but frighteningly disregard low frequency biological effects. Strong vested interests resist change to this in spite of mounting evidence.  For your own health and safety, and sustainable wellness, you need to adopt the Precautionary Principle with some urgency to avoid the risks of the invisible hazard of EMR that do compromise your health.  You can now make use of the amazing new GIA Wellness protection available to reduce the effects of EMR, and have the chance to enjoy sustainable wellness.  See GIA Wellness Protection Products.
