“Court Links cellphone to a man’s brain tumor.”
That was the article title in today’s paper that most caught my eye.
In 2005 I began Blogging because I care about your health and about helping you to make the best heath care decisions that you possible can. That was over a thousand Blog Posts ago.
Here are the Blog Posts I put up on the subject of cell phones causing health issues. I think that if you use a cell phone, you should know that risks. As usual, there is a reason you don’t know much about it: someone would rather you not (it would affect their profits)!
So here, in the news now, we have a guy who works for a company, spending several hours a day on the phone (Does that sound like anyone you know?). He developed a brain tumor. In court – because he lost his hearing in one ear and was disabled – it was determined that the cell phone use caused the tumor.
This won’t be the last time we hear this story: it is just the first.
There its a way to reduce your risks, several actually. We have plenty of paperwork on that, here in the office, that we can share with you.
We also have the R2L, which you can get to reduce your risk. Like any other measure aimed at reducing risk factors (think bending and lifting properly), it is no guarantee that you won’t suffer. It reduces your risk.
A brain tumor probably won’t happen to you. If it does, you may not loose you hearing. But do you want to take the chance? (When it comes to promoting health, it is often about managing risk factors: we are all going to die sometime. When, and how, is something that we can have some control over if we make the right choices before it is too late.)
