In this episode, Dr. Eeks interviews renowned cancer epidemiologist, Dr. Anthony Miller, on why he believes our widespread use of cell phones and exposure to wireless technology may be fueling a future cancer epidemic, especially in young people. He talks about the data, mechanisms of action, why folks don't seem to take this threat seriously and why technology companies don't feel the need to mitigate risk. While this is his belief based on his expertise and research, it's not a widespread belief and no mitigation efforts or warnings have been issued by regulatory bodies. Given our widespread use of wireless tech, it's worth hearing what he has to say.
Dr. Miller is a trained medical doctor and Professor Emeritus at the University of Toronto's Dall Lana School of Public Health. He is a longtime advisor to the World Health Organization and was the Senior Epidemiologist for the International Agency for Research on Cancer. He also served as the Head of Epidemiology at the German Cancer Research Center and as a consultant to the Division of Cancer Prevention of the U.S. National Cancer Institute. He's published numerous studies on the epidemiology of breast cancer; cancer evaluation and screening tools; environmental causes of cancer, and cancer control measures. Dr. Miller has served as the director of the epidemiology unit for the National Cancer Institute of Canada, a clinical professor for the Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at McMaster University and was the Chairman for the Department of Preventive Medicine and Biostatistics at the University of Toronto.
He's received numerous awards for his work, including: The Medal of Honour from the International Agency for Research on Cancer; The Distinguished Achievement Award from the American Society for Preventive Oncology; and The Distinguished Contributions Award from the Canadian Society of Epidemiology and Biostatistics.
