The Berner Zeitung on June 19, 2014 reported exploding costs in cancer treatments, indicating the following numbers:

In Switzerland, the number of new cancer cases in the years between 1990 and 2000 increased from 27,000 to around 33,000 per year. In the following 10 years (until 2010) annual new cases continued to increase to 37,000.

What is interesting is the comparison with the number of digital cell phone masts that existed during this period in Switzerland: In 1990, there were virtually no cell towers, in 2000 there were already 8,500 cell towers, which sent out electromagnetic waves. Between 2000 and 2010 the number ofcell towers nearly doubled to about 16,800.

That means, in the first 20 years, since the introduction of digital cell communications, the annual new cancer cases increased by about 35%!
