Malignant melanoma of the skin – not a sunshine story!

Örjan Hallberg, Olle Johansson

Med Sci Monit 2004; 10(7): CR336-340 :: ID: 11706

Abstract

Background:In an earlier study on malignant melanoma incidence in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and the USA, we found a strong association between the introduction of FM radio broadcasting at full-body resonant frequencies and increasing melanoma incidence. The purpose of the current study was to review mortality and incidence data for malignant melanoma of the skin in Sweden and its temporal relation to increased “sun-traveling”, and to the introduction of FM and TV broadcasting net­works.Material/Methods:Official, published information was collected and displayed graphically. These data included incidence rates of malignant melanoma, death numbers, charter travel statistics, and data on the expansion of the FM broadcasting network in all counties of Sweden.Results:A good correlation in time was found for the rollout of FM/TV broadcasting networks while the increased amount of “sun travel” by air (charter) did not start until 7 years after the melanoma trend break in 1955. Counties that did not roll out their FM-broadcasting network until several years after 1955 continued to have a stable melanoma mortality during the intervening years.Conclusions:The increased incidence and mortality of melanoma of skin cannot solely be explained by increased exposure to UV-radiation from the sun. We conclude that continuous disturbance of cell repair mechanisms by body-resonant electromagnetic fields seems to amplify the carcinogenic effects resulting from cell damage caused e.g. by UV-radiation.
