RESEARCH: INCREASE IN MALIGNANT BRAIN CANCER
Published at 30 Jun 2016

The most malignant and aggressive form of brain cancer, Glioblastom is increasing. This is confirmed by scientific reports from Holland and USA and is described in the publication Microwave News (May 31 2016)  

 

Several new research studies point to an alarming development 

Glioblastom is one of the cancer types that a large American study has connected with mobile radiation. The research responsible Ron Melnick from the national American NTP (National Toxicology Program) demonstrated that 5,5% of the test animals had developed cancer and that the number rose to 8,5% when animals with intimal stages were taken into account.
“That’s a remarkable finding” was the comment from Joel Moskowitz from the acknowledged University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health.

However, this increase in Glioblastom will only be visible in the statistics when the occurrence of brain cancer is established by cancer type – and not only established as total occurrence of “brain cancer” as seen in the yearly reports from the Cancer Registry. The occurrence of other brain cancer types is declining, while the occurrence of the most malignant type Glioblastom is increasing.

Statistics from Holland - +3,1% more cases
The data from Holland shows that the increase starts around 2003 (cf. the graph on this page). It shows that the yearly increase of cases of Glioblastom was 3,1% while the total increase for all types of brain cancer was only 0,7%.

Same development in USA, Sweden and Denmark
In the American cancer registries the same tendency is found: cases of Glioblastom is increasing with up to 2,3% a year, while other types of brain cancer is declining in occurrence. The increase of Glioblastom is found in the temporal lobe, which is the place in the brain closest to the mobile phone when held up to the ear during a conversation.

Previously almost a doubling (40%) of Glioblastom occurrence has been observed in Denmark between 2003-2012 according to the Danish Cancer Registry’ report (see table 1 page 8).
In an article on the webpage of the Danish Cancer Society, chief surgeon at Copenhagen University Hospital, Hans Skovgaard Poulsen, calls it a “an alarming development”.

The Danish Health Authority has tried to explain the increase with “better diagnostics”, and has rejected a connection between mobile radiation and brain cancer with reference to the official Swedish cancer statistics where there was not found an increase over the same period of years. However, the argument of no increase in brain cancer in Sweden was refuted when scientists reviewed patient- and cause of death registries and concluded that many cases of brain cancer were wrongly diagnosed and hence never reported to the cancer registry. When these cases were taken into account an obvious increase of brain cancer in Sweden were proven.

Possibility that the risk is underestimated
The American study lasted two years and after that the animals wee sacrificed for tissue examination. The researcher Joel Moskowitz from the University of California stresses that if the initial stages of cancer found in the tissue – called hyperplasis in cells – have had longer time to develop, the number of malignant cancer incidents would have been higher. This indicates that it is possible that the risk of cancer is underestimated. Ron Melnick who was in charge of the design of the study agrees with the view of Moskowitz.
