Amy Worthington made a clear connection between microwave radiation and the thyroid gland -- especially in how it might indeed relate to obesity -- in her most recent excellent article "Generation X-Ray" -- a generation that, I might sadly add, is not only complacent but also complicit in their own tragedy. And now with the cancer connection being made even more publicly stronger with the CNN program on Larry King Live and the articles appearing in the New York Times, The Toronto Star, and the International Herald Tribune, it should be time to take a closer look at this rise in thyroid cancer. As is stated below

"Radiation exposure is a major suspect because this gland at the base of the neck is one of the most radiation-sensitive organs of the body."

And we must also remember from Amy Worthington's article

" For each minute a child presses a microwave phone to his head, he may suffer radiation damage equivalent to approximately 1.1 chest X-rays.

• For each hour a child uses a transmitting wireless phone or wireless laptop to communicate, watch videos/TV or play games, he may be exposing his developing brain, eye and gut tissues to radiation damage equivalent to 66.6 chest X-rays."

It's a no-brainer for those who still have their brains -- for those still left with the ability to make logical inferences. Two plus two equals four!


Thyroid Cancer on the Rise In Many Countries

Cancer of the thyroid is increasing in incidence in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia. Radiation exposure is a major suspect because this gland at the base of the neck is one of the most radiation-sensitive organs of the body. Its carcinogenic effects can show up decades later in, for example, adults who as children of the 1940s and 50s ' were given radiation therapy for such benign conditions as acne and enlargement of the thymus, tonsils, and adenoids. Today's patients run similar radiation exposure risks from overuse of CT scans. Another likely explanation for the rise in thyroid cancer is the steady increase in the use of imaging tests like magnetic response imaging (MRI), ultrasound and CT scans. Improvements in imaging techniques over the last two decades have allowed doctors to find tiny, slow-growing cancers that would have been missed in another era. Often they are found incidentally during one of these imaging procedures ordered for reasons other than suspicion of thyroid cancer. The overwhelming majority of these cancers will never become life-threatening.

Mercury teeth fillings may harm some: U.S. FDA

By Susan Heavey Wed Jun 4, 7:48 PM ET

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Silver-colored metal dental fillings contain mercury that may cause health problems in pregnant women, children and fetuses, the Food and Drug Administration said on Wednesday after settling a related lawsuit.

As part of the settlement with several consumer advocacy groups, the FDA agreed to alert consumers about the potential risks on its website and to issue a more specific rule next year for fillings that contain mercury, FDA spokeswoman Peper Long said.

Millions of Americans have the fillings, or amalgams, to patch cavities in their teeth.

Norfolk hospital asked to remove paging system

Board told roof-top device emitting microwave radiation unsafe for patients

The Norfolk General Hospital board of directors has been asked to consider removing a paging service from its roof because of the microwave radiation it emits.

"I'm sure other locations could be found in the community that could be safer," Anca Gaston said during a presentation to the board this week. "My recommendation would be to have it moved."
