Essentially it happens like this:
- Your cells’ energy is used for radiation protection instead of metabolism.
- The cell membranes harden, keeping essential nutrients out, and keeping waste products in.
- The waste accumulating inside the cells provides an increased concentration of free radicals, leading to interruption of DNA repair.
- Cell death is a result, releasing micronuclei from the disrupted DNA repair in between cells where they are free to replicate. This is the likely mechanism that contributes to cancer growth.
Now think about it like this. Cancer is a genetic disease caused by changes to genes that control the way our cells function. When specific environmental exposure damages and mutates the DNA in a cell, this can lead to cell death and even cancer. Cancerous cells bypass our immune system and continue to duplicate without dying until a tumor formed is the result. Cancerous tumors are malignant, so they can invade nearby tissues and eventually develop new tumors far away from the original site.
To back this claim up, The WHO/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B – the same grouping as lead and chloroform) based on an increased risk of glioma, a malignant brain cancer, associated with wireless phone use.
Scientists and researchers predict that while non-ionizing radiation can’t break chemical bonds, they can still induce oxidative stress in a cell. EMF generates Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) that can lead to excessive free radicals. This increase in free radicals can lead to cancer and neuronal damage. EMFs put on the highly-sensitive voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCC) in the cell cause a vast accumulation of calcium ions.
Calcium ions can react to create even more free radicals, also generated by ROS. This imbalance breaks down the cell membrane and allows EMF to break DNA strands, causing mutations. If this mutated cell doesn’t die and starts to duplicate, cancerous tumors can form. While the research varies on cancerous effects of EMF radiation, Jeffry Fawcett, Ph.D., found that independently-funded studies showed a much higher positive association (47%) with cancer than in studies funded by the telecom industry (11%). These numbers are significantly different because the FFC does a great job of keeping these things silent, as it would cost too much to regulate this industry.
