When you watch the speech by Aaron
Eckhart’s character to
the Telco industry boys in the trailer to
the new documentary “Disconnect” below, you can’t help but think
about how similar the Telco cover up of the dangers of cell phone
radiation mimics the Tobacco industry.
When I started learning about
cell phone radiation from Howard
Kalnitsky, he indicated that the cell phone industry has been
covering up the dangers of radiation from cell phones for years.
also informed me that the companies that own the Telco’s also
control the media in Canada so it was very difficult to “spread the
I assumed he was just another frustrated
businessman and didn’t give his conspiracy/cover up theory a lot of
thought The Telco’s controlling the media... c’mon. Turns out the man
Here are some examples:
Newspaper Advertising Blackout
Mr. Kalnitsky indicated to me that
he has sent emails to editors of every major newspaper in Canada
about the dangers of cell phone radiation. He offered to write
educational articles and advertise in their publications.
one newspaper returned Mr. Kalnitsky’s emails. Hard to believe
but true. Surely the papers must be looking for stories to fill
their pages and revenue to fill their bank account.
Do you think
it might have something to do with the that fact that the
newspapers feared losing their piece of the massive advertising
pie handed out by the Telco industry?
Television Advertising Blackout
Mr. Kalnitsky contacted numerous
television stations offering to participate in talk shows or to
advertise his cell phone radiation blocking product on their
No interest. Hmmmm...
Radio Station Blackout
No interest from any station. His
latest rejection came with the message from the manager of the
“I’m not putting my career on
the line on this one”
Do the above examples smack of
conspiracy, or is it simply a matter of businesses wisely
avoiding any potential conflict of interest with the Telco’s?
The Telco industry is the second
largest industry in the world and heaven knows they advertise
like crazy. The news today that the two largest Telco’s in
Canada teamed up to buy 75% of the local hockey team in Toronto
for $1.32 billion tells you how powerful they are. Strange
bedfellows for sure.
I assume neither of them could pass
up the opportunity to peddle their wares to hockey crazed
While big business can and does manipulate the media, they can’t
control the internet.
I assumed that the inevitable exposure
of the risks of cell phones would eventually come as a result of the
efforts of the “do gooder” bloggers like yours truly. After all,
everybody loves a conspiracy story. However, I never expected to get
help from Hollywood.
In 2010, Devra Davis (see far below
video) wrote a great book called
- The Truth About Cell Phone Radiation, What The Industry
Has Done To Hide It, and How To Protect Your Family”.
Reading Devra’s book should be a
no-brainer but in our ADD and time-rationed society, most people
won’t respond to anything if it doesn’t come in sound bites.
I’m 100% convinced now that the next big “tobacco style” cover up is
taking place right now and nobody seems to care.
If you have any interest whatsoever in
learning about the dangers of cell phone usage, please take 4
minutes out of your busy life and watch the YouTube trailer of the
new documentary “Disconnect”:
Is all of this telephone radiation conspiracy stuff just another
alarmist point of view? The WHO (World Health Organization) doesn’t
The U.S. government National Institute of
Health (NIH) website which publishes scientific studies from all
over the world doesn’t think so either
as seen here.
In the article in the website, you will
read the following:
The NIH article quotes Dr.
Lennart Hardell (oncologist and cancer epidemiologist):
We found that cell phone use is
linked to gliomas [malignant brain tumors] and acoustic
neuromas [benign tumors of the brain’s auditory nerve] and
are showing up after only ten years.
I could go on and on about this subject
as there are hundreds of scientific studies that support the
position that unprotected cell phone use can be dangerous.
we all know that time is precious.
The statement at the end of the
Disconnect movie trailer offered by Dane Snowden, the VP of
CTIA (the International Association for the Wireless
Telecommunications Industry) sums up the position of the Telco
industry perfectly when he tells us:
the industry has not said once… once that cell phones are safe
It appears to me that this is not a Telco conspiracy at all.
How can it be a conspiracy when the
industry clearly tells us that it has never claimed cell phones are
I believe the strategy of the Telco’s is irresponsible to society,
but I also have to admit that their strategy is brilliant. How can
any company or industry be sued when they instruct users to hold
their cell phone away from their head in the owner’s manual, and
never claim that cell phones are safe? A
fter all, people won’t listen to
warnings about cell phones any more than they did about tobacco…
until family members start dying.
A Lecture by Author Devra
September 23, 2010
Devra Davis presented her book
Disconnect - The Truth About Cell Phone Radiation, What The Industry
Has Done To Hide It, and How To Protect Your Family, published that day by Dutton.
She argued that cell phone radiation
damages the human body. She said that recently disclosed research
shows that cell phones negatively affect human DNA and increase the
user's risk of developing memory loss, cancer, and various
Ms. Dutton talked about the industry
practices that have hidden the dangers and her recommendations for
cell phone use. Ms. Davis showed slides throughout her presentation
and responded questions at the end.
Dr. Herberman added remarks about the
need to take precautions. Maine State Representative Boland talked
about industry resistance to safety warnings.
This book launch event was held at at Georgetown University in
Washington, D.C., where Ms. Davis was a visiting lecturer.
