Pediatric Cancers Up
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recently presented new findings of "increasing rates of brain cancer, renal cancer, hepatic (liver) cancer, and thyroid cancer among individuals under 20 years old in the USA...".
These new findings came after the CDC analyzed the data on Pediatric Cancers it had collected between 2001 and 2014. These findings were presented at the 2018 American Society of Pediatric Hematology Oncology Conference in May of 2018 and also at the 67th Annual Epidemic Intelligence Service Conference in April of 2018.
CDC's New Findings
According to the CDC, the data they analyzed identified 196,200 cases of Pediatric Cancer reported between 2001 and 2014, which represented an overall increase from earlier data. The most prevalent cancer seen in children was leukemia, followed by brain tumors and lymphomas. Overall cancer rates were seen to be highest among boys between the ages of 0 and 4. According to the CDC, the increase in cancer rates that was seen was even across sex, age and rural/urban status.
CDC To Investigate Environmental Exposures
The increase in Pediatric Cancer has led the CDC to evaluate what might be causing this increase. After looking into changes in diagnostic methods and reporting methods as a possible reason for the increase, the CDC plans to investigate the "host biological factors" of the children diagnosed with cancer as well as the "environmental exposures" of these children.
WHO Says Radiation a Type 2 Carcinogen
While there can be many causes attributing to this increase in Pediatric Cancers, it is important to note thatas of 2018 over a dozen countries (excluding the USA) have put restrictions on the use of cell phones by children as well as on the implementation of WiFi in schools as a means of protecting children from the effects of microwave radiation.
Microwave radiation (as is emitted by cell phones, WiFi and all other wireless technology) has been classified by the World Health Organization as a "possible carcinogen to humans" with many scientists around the globe saying there is enough evidence to change that classification to "probable carcinogen".
