The World Health Organization, along with other health specialists, are blaming electromagnetic fields as being the 'likely cause' in up to 30% of childhood cancers, adult leukaemia, depression, brain cancers,  breast cancer, and even up to 1/10th of all miscarriages. Invisible 'smog', created by the electricity that powers our civilisation, is giving children cancer, causing miscarriages and suicides and making some people allergic to modern life, new scientific evidence reveals. 

The evidence - which is being taken seriously by national and international bodies and authorities - suggests that almost everyone is being exposed to a new form of pollution with countless sources in daily use in every home.

Are you concerned about electromagnetic smog and its possible health effects?

i think the gov. is making up more and more reasons for getting cancer...take the sun for instance...i dont think the sun bothers you at all i think its just the chemicals that are in the lotion....ive never heard of any one dying of sun cancer until they actually came out with suntan lotion

^Actually, people didn't used to get skin cancer as much because the atmosphere hadn't become as weak as it is now.

I suppose it is possible that too much exposure to anything could case negative health affects, this just being one of those things.

I guess I could be concerned about it, but it would be pointless because it will exist as long as electricity exists.

Oh dear, something else in the world causes cancer. How totally and utterly unexpected . I just don't care anymore about cancer. It seems living in itself causes cancer these days.

Nope, not at all.

Maybe a little bit but not all that much.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 1/29/07 - 10:39:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
Just a little, yes.

The more problems they have too fix the more money they need to fix them ;)

Not remotely. People are just experts at finding a reason to be scared.
