Souske will get cancer?
 
I was re-reading vol.3 and this came to my mind...
Since lambda driver requires gamma brain waves to be activated, wouldn't the source of gamma waves, Souske, be hit by the waves and cause some of his cells to mutate and cause cancer? Or even worse, people around Souske get infected with cancer since he's a 'source'

As we all know, gamma wave is one of the biggest (and only in my zero biology knowledge)cause for cancer. Look at Gaulong--using lambda driver day and night and emitting gamma waves like there's no tomorrow--and he ended up with cancer.

Of course...if the author dares give Souske/Kanami/Tessa cancer he will have many fans to deal with...

...I think the word 'gamma' is a name given a certain range of brain waves with frequencies around 30-40 hertz. It's got nothing to do with radiations. Brain activity is made of electrical impulses through the neurons, not gamma radiations. I think it was explained in TSR and EoDbD that Amalgam soldiers needed drugs to make their brains produce high frequency waves - but it's not like they'll act as radioactive emitters.

Gamma brain waves =/= gamma radiation.

...Moreover I don't think Amalgam and MITHRIL would be foolish enough to build a gamma emitter inside the cockpit. Their pilots would have their lifespan shortened and their physical performances would greatly suffer from the radiations.

...But that said, it's possible that Sousuke might develop limps or health degradation later in life due to the wounds and ordeals he went through during his service life and youth. In BOMF he was shot in the abdomen and had, IIRC, part of his liver taken out, not to mention his incurring internal damage at a quite critical area. Although his body might be seasoned by years of fighting and hardened against most types of abuse a human body can suffer through a lifetime, it still remains that his muscles, strength and organs will tire down from all of that. Not to mention stress from lifethreatening missions and nervous pressure, etc. It's possible he already lost a few years off his life expectancy.

Awww...I know getting zero in biology will not take me far enough to understand the concept of cancer...

well it is an anime. Those rules may not apply lol

I first thought gamma brain wave was a made-up term...and it does actually exist...scary...(well forgive me I suck at biology)

masterwok 2006-09-21 16:46

iamandragon i dont think they r gamma rays but something lower that wont hurt them

Zu Ra 2007-02-01 19:48

Even if its Gamma Radiation which its not , Sagara if he gets cancer will not be this soon . The Physcist who dicovered Radium before the knowlege of radiation Marie Curie lived till ripe old age dieing due to radiation related illness . Techs at Rasdiology Department of Medicine are exposed to gamma radiation everyday despite protective lead clothing .

I don't think cancer is contagious...

Or is it? o__o

Contempt 2007-02-02 18:31

Cancer isn't contagious, or at least in the forms that have arisen... It's just a personal imbalance... Caused by too much of one thing...
i.e. Vitamin D can cause long term cell damage blah blah blah resulting in skin cancer.
One of the reasons that England has become a 'nanny' state of sorts (telling people what to eat, wear suntan lotion etc...)

That aside, I would think Sousuke would be in more immediate threat from Chidori...

Naah its not eventhough its classified as a disease its just cell mutation at uncontolled rates or unessecary division of cells .

I have to second that if Sagara is going to be seriously injured or die its more likely due to repeated head concussions received from Kana's fan . Yes Phear the Kana :love:

hahahhaahah. Yeah, I know. She hits him so many times. I chuckle every time I hear him say "y'know, that hurt...."

TigerII 2007-02-04 13:45

I guess it could be possible. But they are not gonna kill off the main character with cancer..lol.

The best death would be a bomb, and he and Kana are both wounded. As the bombs detonate, they kiss. I like the all die endings..ha.

Besides, how would they deliver the bomb? A letter bomb in his shoebox?:twitch:

Nah, that is what he's EXPECTING them to do....ah, poor shoe locker. But, he's suspected it enough, that, maybe...maybe they could <EEEG>>

Zu Ra 2007-02-11 10:39

Inn FUMOFU Sagara succesful detonated a ' supposed ' letter bomb which was a love letter from a junior . if its letter bombs our Gunso is very well preapared to handle them :heh:

Phantom-Takaya 2007-02-12 09:26

I'd say brain damage may be a probable cause. Chidori smacks him in the head enough, she might break something in there... We all know that fan's not the only thing she's used on him... She just uses that more often than other objects...

Other than that, he should be able to take a beating from conventional weaponry. To use some quoes from Sousuke, himself; "It's not a problem." "Everything is fine."

I'm still trying to figure out how he managed to buy a train ticket and climb up the stairs to his apartment while handcuffed to a folding chair in that first episode...

Contempt 2007-02-13 17:36

The ticket is one I'm still trying to work out, but he could have taken the elevator up to their floor.... I seem to remember Kaname getting frustrated deciding on the stairs during that mad dash to retrieve her notebook... Then again, I could be mistaken...

Phantom-Takaya 2007-02-14 02:44

You're right. There was an elevator. Now, the tricky part is purchasing the ticket, let alone getting through the gate to the train platform...

masterwok 2007-02-14 21:33

i think they have passes bc of school so i think they just have to swipe it through to get to the train
