The Puzzle Series Part 5: Epidemology

The basic point of epidemiology is to understand which environmental factors can lead to disease.   It is a way of finding a common thread for disease, so that others may not be affected by it.  In particular, it is a way to judge the long term effects of something on a population.  In part 4 of this series, there was a study in regards to dirty electricity.   In this post more papers are presented that are relevant to this topic in regards to Kyanna.

In the recent years some of the most noticeable studies about harmful effects from electromagnetic radiation have come from Scandinavia and other European countries.   One such study shows that the increased risk from brain cancer for children rose by more than 500% if they used a cordless phone or cell phone before the age of 20.  That study can be read here..  There are other studies that show increased cancer rates from living closer to FM transmission stations. Also among these, studies like this one found people living within 400 meters of cell phone transmission towers were three times more likely to develop cancer than those that lived over 400 meters.  All of these pertain to Kyanna as they are present where she lived and all of these items can be measured.   More importantly, you see where towers are located around your home by typing in your address here.

These reports are by no means a smoking gun.  They are a reference point and another piece of the puzzle.  However, they do correlate and fit into the puzzle of a possible means of why Kyanna had a brain tumor and what could have caused it.  What happened to one person can and often does happen to another.  Epidemiology points out hazardous environmental factors that can influence health.   It is because of this knowledge there are limits on things like asbestos, DDT, smoking, and many other things.  The difference is that none of those are/were cornerstones of society like the electromagnetic spectrum is for us today.   Is there then any wonder why we all want them to be ‘safe’?
