Firstly, please read this short article by Charlie Teo.
Then let me refer you back to this posting which was a response to ABC's Mark Colvin's question about where to go for from that point.
Lastly, I want to refer you to directly to just one part of Teo's article - the summary.
Dr Teo's tips to reduce brain tumour risks
- Keep electrical appliances like clock radios at the foot of the bed
- Turn electric blankets off before retiring
- Put mobile phones on hands-free
- Wait until the microwave finishes beeping before opening it
You might be skeptical. That's your privilege. You're not going to get a brain tumour, are you?
Probably not - the odds are that you won't.
But I did. I don't know how much difference these might make, but it's foolish to ignore them. I was not aware that there could be the slightest possible risk with electric blankets being left on, electronic clocks and radios up close to your head, or waiting right till the end of the beep cycle when your microwave often stops. (I figured that microwaves travel at the speed of light - 192,000 miles per second - and when the stop button was pressed, it was not possible for there to be any residue of radiation unless the oven was faulty. Maybe there isn't, in most modern microwave ovens - but why risk it?)
Help protect your life!
Thanks, Charlie Teo. You're a good man. Some of the medical establishment turn their noses up at you, because you do unorthodox things along with the standard good medical practice you always use. But I respect you greatly. Without unorthodoxy, there can be no progress.
