Mobile Phones and Cancer

Rumours about a link between mobile phones and possible cancers started when mobile phones were first introduced. The technology has changed since then; early phones were analogue and used more power. Digital technology has reduced the power consumption and radiation in phones. Digital encoding allows a signal to be transmitted with much less concern over clarity or interference, even with lower power signals. Closer base stations allow shorter signal paths, again reducing the amount of power needed.


But even with lower powered signals a mobile phone still emits radiation. This is why some people are concerned that they may cause cancer. Some technical information will help us understand this.


Radiation comes in many forms. Mobile phones Radio Frequency (RF) electromagnetic radiation.  This RF can broadly divide into two categories – ionizing and non-ionizing. Ionizing radiation causes atoms to gain or lose an electron, which is a change at the molecular level of matter. This ionizing radiation is thought to be a risk for cancer as the atoms in our cells can be altered, with the cells then reproducing in the wrong way. However, mobile phones work with non-ionizing radiation, which is not thought to be cancer inducing, at least at moderate levels.


The non-ionizing radiation of mobile phones is similar to the RF in TV and radio signals, though the frequency of the radiation if different. We are constantly exposed to this every day. Mobile phones would add little to what we already experience. The signal from a mobile phone is less than one watt, which is small compared to most electronic devices.


According to a Danish study in 2006 and 2011 [1], following mobile phone users for many years, there was no real effect on cancer rates. Most studies give similar results – either there is no effect, or there might be a minor effect.


The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) presently puts mobile phones in the 2B category, indicating that there might be a possible cancer risk. This seems low compared to Sun exposure and other environmental issues. Mobile phones are the lease of our concerns.

Decal, for an image that is part of the surface

A really great way to redesign wall menus, print brand logos at a cheap price is to use decal products. It lasts longer than stickers and when needing to replace it, decals can be peeled off instead of buying a new sign. When done well, to the human eye it will appear as if the design has been painted on. A fantastic way for businesses to display material. Dr Decal Mr Hyde is a leading distributor of digital printing decal and temporary tattoo products in Australia. They claim that their products can be applied on many surfaces with the highest quality. For wood products, their new roll waterslide decals allow for easy generation of images and can be easily applied to most surfaces. Their website contains sections of their access to specialised decals and they are very transparent of the whole process. Decals are also a great present to give to friends for any item of clothing or toys. I would say to definitely have a look at Dr Decal Mr Hyde for all your design and promotion needs.


Air Purifiers are used to improve indoor air quality by filtering out dust, smoke, bacteria and pollen. This will solve issues of pet allergies, allergies to dust by cleaning the air. An energy efficient, cost saving air purifier manufacturer in the market at the moment is Clair. With their new innovative e2F technology, their filter collects particles smaller than 0.3 microns (typically not caught by regular HEPA filters). Compared to other bestselling products on the market, their air purifiers are quieter and more energy saving. Their filter replacement lasts for 1 year and only requires vacuuming the top portion of the filter when cleaning; other filters require up to 3 replacements over a span of 1 year. The designs of Clair air purifiers are intuitive and easy to use, which can be adaptable to any house colour scheme. On the Go Clair website, there is research on Air Purifiers with photos to show the results of different cases and the effectiveness of the air purifier.

Soju is a clear, colourless alcoholic drink from South Korea. It varies in alcoholic strength from about 17% to 45% but is usually about 20%. While it is not too well known in the Western world it is extremely common in the East and is easily one of the world’s largest selling alcoholic beverages.

The distillation method used for Soju varies. Historically it was first produced with rice, but shortages of rice lead to its production with sweet potatoes, Tapioca and grains. Some of these methods proved to be cheaper that previous methods and continued even when the rice shortage ended; by contrast grain based Soju was more expensive and continued as a high end gourmet product.

Because the alcohol content is usually lower than most spirits (less than 25% when sold in the west) Soju does not require an expensive distilled liquor licence when sold in the west. This mean restaurants and bars can serve it using only the type of licence need for wine. Some retailers use this loophole to produce Soju equivalents of cocktails that are traditionally made with stronger spirits. These cocktail are lower priced than their hard liquor equivalents and can be sold by retailers not usually known for mixed drinks.

Some popular Soju drinks are:

  • Bomb drink (Poktanju): a shot-glass of Soju in a pint of beer.
  • Suso Poktanju: A shot glass or beer in a pint of Soju (the opposite of the above).
  • Fallen Angel: 45mls Soju, 15mls green Crème de Menthe, 30 mls lemon juice, a dash of bitters and a cherry. Shake ingredients together and strain over ice.
  • Soju with Yogurt: Equal parts Soju, Yogurt and soda. Shake with ice and serve. Asian yogurt drinks tend to be thinner than western types, much like Yakult or “healthy bacteria” drinks.
  • Soju with grapefruit juice: 1 part Soju to 3 or 4 parts grapefruit juice. Add club soda or seltzer water and fine sugar to taste. Serve chilled.
  • Anything that traditionally used Vodka can be varied to use Soju. The results are different but comparable to the vodka original, and lower in alcohol.

What’s In A Name ?

Our name is intertwined with our identity. It is one of the first words we come to recognise in print, learn to write, and respond to when heard aloud. We either come to connect with our name, or occasionally find that friends and colleagues prefer to use a nickname. The fact that a name is occasionally changed to something else is testimony to the fact that the name has to somehow suit the individual. If the birth name doesn’t seem right, a nickname is used instead.

There may be a history behind the person’s name. It was a family thing, named after a relative; else the name might just sound right in isolation, or even just look right when written down. We can have a visual image associated with a name, and make all sorts of assumptions about a person simply because of this label; the origin of these assumptions being a little bit of a mystery, the assumptions changing in an instant if we meet someone who contradicts our expectations. Really, if someone is named ‘Ernest’ do we thing of Oscar Wilde’s comic play or Hemingway’s rugged masculinity? Its actual meaning is closer to Hemingway’s personality; Wilde’s used it ironically. But parents don’t necessarily look up the meaning when they choose for their newborn child. I think often the given name is simply a phonetic match with the Family name that we have rather little choice about. The name’s associations come from what we experience in connection with it.

What about unorthodox variations? Parents want the child to be recognised as an individual, so give it a name that nobody else has, or spell it in some unconventional way? Does this make the person different, or does it indicate that they always were different. A few people wonder how an unorthodox name wears for a child at school. A popular child can dare to be different and still be accepted, and the distinctive name goes with this. At other times a child is ostracised for not being part of the convention. Again, does the name influence this or simply reflect it.

Ancient Roman’s thought the name was an omen of what the person was, or would be. At the same time they would change the name if the person’s social status changed. The two ideas don’t quite reconcile; does the name determine character, or does the character determine the name? Probably not either really. It’s probably that the name should indicate the individual’s character. Either way the link is not arbitrary, we are not just given a number. Somehow the name must suit the individual.
