Head and face melanoma on the rise! Our
experts always state that mobile phone use has nothing to
do with health problems. Since year 2000 the head/face melanoma
rate has increased by 55%. At the same time the use of mobile
phones has increased by 300%. Will we face a problem in the
future or can this be disregarded as a matter of coincidence,
as the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority tends to say?
Same in e.g. Denmark:

The paper on left-sided cancers published in
Pathophysiology has certainly drawn lots of attention. On

have gotlots of interesting comments to read if you whish.

full article ÷rjan Hallberg has put together a well researched
and documented article outlining a number of increases in
cancers and other issues (such as sleep disturbances) which
have risen markedly since the takeup of modern GSM and 3G

possibility that mobile phones are at least partially responsible
is very likely." (From www.radiationresearch.org) Also

earlier studies we have noticed how cancer deaths started
to increase when new broadcasting systems (FM) were rolled-out.
And that it appeared to become reduced when some AM-towers
were closed in 1979. However, by help from the National
Board of Health and Welfare we found that this improvement
was a result of changed
routins for death certificates at that time.

- The Swedish Post and Telecom Agency (PTS) had invited
me on October 16 to give a presentation on my research regarding
public health and radiation. The one-hour show first highlighted
the cancer epidemic, and especially that of melanoma after
1955. The second part related to the worsening public
health in Sweden since 1997 and finally some recent
worrying trends after year 2000 were given. This
was the first ever given to a Swedish authority.
