US President Barack Obama has turned to a Midland anti-mobile phone mast campaigner to help the fight against cancer.
Eileen O’Connor, as a founder member of the Radiation Research Trust, has led the battle against the relentless growth of mobile phone masts and technology for the past seven years.
And now the US President’s cancer panel, set up by Obama to research the possible links with both nuclear and electro-magnetic radiation, has asked Eileen for her views on the issue.
The trust has supported widespread research into the possible dangers of mobile and wireless radiation and campaigns for the technology to be made safer.
Eileen said: “Obama’s panel has launched an information gathering exercise and I was invited to provide evidence. While I am not building up my hopes, I am delighted the issue is being taken seriously by the President.
“President Obama recently said science is about ensuring that facts and evidence are never twisted or obscured by politics or ideology.
“It’s about listening to what our scientists have to say, even when it’s inconvenient and I welcome this approach.”
