    Self-reported Electrical Appliance Use and Risk of Adult Brain Tumors | American Journal of Epidemiology | Oxford Academic
    Ever use of an electric shaver was significantly associated with meningioma in males (OR = 10.9, 95 percent CI: 2.3, 50); however, this estimate was based on only two nonexposed and 35 exposed cases. The odds ratios for meningioma were markedly increased for both rechargeable (OR = 10.6, 95 percent CI: 1.7, 68) and plug-in (OR = 16.5, 95 percent CI: 2.8, 95) shavers.

    For meningioma, the odds ratios increased with increasing years of use of electric shavers.

    For electric shavers, odds ratios were increased with increased frequency of use for meningioma only, but they showed no dose-response effect (for 1–3 times per month: OR = 18; for 1–6 times per week: OR = 12; and for daily use: OR = 15) (table 4).

    The paper down plays the results mainly by pointing to having only 2 non-user cases but that doesnt explain the increase in cancer rates that is correlated with increased use among the user group.

    I measured the magnetic field of my two trimmers and they were very high (32 milligaus where anything above 3 is considered dangerous.) Both corded and battery operated.

    I just jumped on the stubble band wagon and noticed I was getting headaches from using the trimmer. I'm gonna try to free style with scissors and see how that looks.

    I threw mine out when I got my trifield meter. I forget the numbers but the emfs are high. Same with hair dryers

    Laptops are very high in EMFs, it's better to hook it up to external monitor, keyboard & mouse, than to rest your hands on the laptop keyboard all day.

    What about wifi, cars, laptops, phones, treadmills, light bulbs, televisions, radios, keyboards, etc etc etc

    all of these things have EMF levels which should be concerning to the average person? Why haven't cancer rates increased 3 fold?

    Self-reported surveys tend to be fairly weak when it comes to making scientific conclusions, though I am not denying the role of EMF in cancer.

    They have, and even more in some cancers.

    Not to say it's all from EMFs but they are a big part of the problem IMO

    yea that's a good one and the DoCooler and Aircoms are nice too. Overall, I've been using speakers for years, nothing on my head. But if I have to listen closely to critical edits, I'll throw on my airtube buds.
