@ltaALERT: Cancer Rates Watch

Melanoma rates on the rise among young women
Food Consumer, IL - Jul 13, 2008
By David Liu, Ph.D. SUNDAY July 13, 2008 (foodconsumer.org) -- The prevalence of a form of deadly skin cancer called melanoma has been on the rise ...

In Foodconsumer.org July 13 a study on melanoma rates among younger women was presented. The original study was published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology. In the Foodconsumer summary it was also mentioned that I have found that melanoma is associated with radio waves from radio (FM) and TV broadcasting towers. In April 2008 the European Journal of Cancer Prevention published a study 1 where I had tested a mathematical model for melanoma incidence to see which one of two explanations really could explain the trends we see regarding age-specific and age standardized melanoma rates. One model assumed that the rate of skin damages due to increasing sun tanning habits became too high for the body's natural capacity to cope with. The second model instead assumed that the body's repair capacity of skin damages suddenly became reduced from mid 20th century onward. It turned out that only the latter model was capable of explaining the trends we have seen and that the increased sun tanning hypothesis did not.
