“How Big Wireless Convinced Us Cell Phones and Wi-Fi are Safe” was selected as one of the ten most under-reported stories of the past year by Project Censored (PC). PC is a media research initiative that champions the importance of a free press for democratic self-government. The PC story featured a new study of miscarriage in pregnant women and a special investigation for The Nation and The Guardian which examined how news about wireless health risks has been censored by the media due to industry influence.
This year the U.S. government disbanded with many environmental protections and paved the way for industry to intensify its exploitation of the environment at the expense of planetary health. The telecom and wireless industries have benefited from the government’s abdication of responsibility to protect the public’s health. State and federal governments have conflicts of interest — on average, 19% of your cell phone bill is devoted to taxes and fees in addition to the taxes that corporations pay.
With the conclusion of two major studies this year, we now have “clear evidence” that cell phone radiation exposure can cause cancer based upon research conducted by the National Toxicology Program in the U.S. and the Ramazzini Institute in Italy. Many scientists believe that this research constitutes the “missing link” needed for the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer to declare wireless radiation a human carcinogen (i.e., Group 1).
