Radiation and cancer cases produced by radars: meteorological, traffic and military

Radiation and cancer cases produced by radars: meteorological, traffic and military

For years I have continued to warn about the effects of radiation on the population and living beings from the radar systems and the fine communications system.

Everyone knows that being close to a radar has consequences, no longer due to direct exposure such as a mobile phone antenna, but each period of 12 to 30 seconds, (what it takes for the radar to make its 360º turn, is As if you turned the system on and off 365 days a year 24 hours a day, here is a video so you can hear and see the exhibition is in Prat del Llobregat and the radar is one of the Airport:

Military facilities are no less, in many cases as they are military, they do not have information on the range of frequencies in which they work, but it is not advisable to live in nearby places, since the cases of affected soldiers, because they are in these places, are not few, I speak of here but in the whole world.

But what seems more exaggerated to me is the fashion of knowing the weather per minute, and of course to give service to it, countless meteorological radars have been built on peaks and mountains that should not be there for another type and pollution, but apart from that it is the proximity to these facilities of houses and rural nuclei and that the population lives on the fringes of it, they only see a big ball, and if they ask, they tell you that it is "A device for looking at time"

Without lengthening any further I leave you with this most recent study that alerts about them, radar radiation found (again) cases of cancer in the occupational and military environments.

  • The carcinogenicity of radio frequency (RFR) was examined.
  • The focus was on hemolymphatic cancers in occupational and military settings.
  • An unusually high proportion of hemolymphatic cancers was found in a series of cases.
  • Similar unusually high proportions were reported in three previous cohort studies.
  • The findings support a case for classifying RFR as a human carcinogen.


Abstract background and objective

We reexamined whether radio frequency radiation (RFR) in occupational and military settings is a human carcinogen.


The analysis of a series of cases of cancer patients previously exposed and previously exposed to prolonged whole-body RFR, mainly from communication equipment and radar, was extended. We focus on hematolymphatic cancers (HL). We use the analysis by percentage frequency (PF) of a cancer type, which is the ratio of a specific type of cancer to the total number of cancer cases. We also examined and analyzed published data on three other cohort studies from similar military settings from different countries.


The PF of HL cancers in the case series was very high, 40%, with only 23% expected for the age and sex series, 95% confidence interval: 26-56%, p & lt; 0.01, 19 of 47 patients had HL cancers. We also found a high PF for multiple primaries. Regarding the other three cohort studies: in the Polish military sector, the PF of HL cancers was 36% in the exposed population compared to 12% in the unexposed population, p & lt; 0.001. In a small group of employees exposed to RFR in the Israeli defense industry, the PF for HL cancers was 60% versus the 17% expected for the age and sex profile of the group, p & lt; 0.05. In Belgian radar battalions, the HL PF was 8.3% compared to 1.4% in control battalions, as shown in a study of causes of death, and the HL cancer death rate was 7 , 2 and statistically significant. Similar findings were reported for radio amateurs and Korean war technicians. High risk rates were previously reported in most previous studies.


The consistent association of RFR and highly elevated HL cancer risk in the four groups spread over three countries, operating different types of RFR equipment and analyzed by different research protocols, suggests a cause-effect relationship between RFR and HL cancers in settings. military / occupational. Although complete measurements of RFR exposures were not available and approximate exposure assessments from patient interviews and partial exposure data were used, we have shown an increase in LH cancers in occupational groups with relatively high RFR exposures. Our findings, combined with other studies, indicate that exposures incurred in the military settings evaluated here significantly increased the risk of HL cancers. Consequently, military RFR exposures in these occupations should be substantially reduced and additional efforts should be made to monitor and measure those exposures and to follow cohorts exposed to RFR for cancers and other health effects. In general, epidemiological studies on excess risk of HL and other cancers together with brain tumors in cell phone users and experimental studies on RFR and carcinogenicity constitute a consistent case for a cause-effect relationship and classify RFR exposure as a carcinogen. human (IARC group 1)

Radars to consider:

  • Fixed and mobile traffic near homes.
  • Meteorological in the mountains near houses and towns.
  • Nautical recreational and transport boats, near marinas and seafront.
  • Military, near air bases, coast, maritime surveillance, etc.
  • Civil and military airports, radius of action near homes.
