In this newsletter I thought I would refer to an article that surfaced again the other day despite being written in 2009.

I personally think that mobile telephones, as convenient as they are, will be the “cigarette crisis” of the future.  Meaning that where cigarettes were advertised as a good “relaxation therapy” during WW II and just after, and then later we hear that the awful health risks were actually already suspected back then, so too with the health risks of electro-magnetic radiation.

Well respected brain cancer surgeon Dr Charlie Teo said in speech at a Melbourne fundraiser in 2009 that he urges “people to put mobile phones on loudspeaker, move clock radios to the foot of the bed and wait until microwaves have finished beeping before opening them”.

He goes on to say that “although the jury was still out on mobile phones and other forms of electromagnetic radiation, we should not take risks” and that “we should try and limit the amount of electromagnetic radiation that you’re exposed to.”

He also says that “Electric blankets should be turned off before you get in bed”, and I know of at least one electrician who agrees.

I would go further and say to avoid placing mobile telephones, iPads and laptops directly on your body while you are using them, and too while you are carrying them around, which I know for you males can be a difficult thing because gone are the days of the “man bag”, however perhaps try having times when you switch your mobile off while in your pocket and then later turning them on and check your messages.

He goes on further to say that “some hair dyes, particularly red, could also cause brain cancer in people with a predisposition” and explains by saying “The body needs some genetic predisposition. The hair dye, the mobile phone, they’re just catalysts but you probably need some sort of genetic aberration to get the cancer in the first place.”

Dr Teo said that “while breast cancer doubled its cell numbers in weeks or months, the quickest brain cancers took just 16 hours” and that “No age group was immune and the incidence of brain tumours was growing.”

It was good to read that apart from mainstream cancer therapy Dr Teo also said that “A healthy diet, meditation and positive thought could also be beneficial. We believe that they probably boost the immune system.”

I would like to add that regular Neuro-Training with Kinesiology sessions can help to break unwanted patterns, mentally, emotionally, physically, and help to retrain the neurology so that the nervous system can respond in new ways rather than repeating inappropriate old patterns
