Do Cell Phones Weaken Our Ability to Fight Disease?

Do Cellphones Weaken Our Ability to Fight Disease?
published on November 5, 2013 by Richard Maxwell, Ph.D. and Toby Miller, Ph.D. in Greening the Media,
5 November 2013

Our brains evolved to keep us happy and healthy, then along came electronics.

Toward the end of the 2012 documentary, Resonance—Beings of Frequency, the narrator tells us that the cellphone industry has been asking the wrong question about cellphone-related cancers. Rather than examine how cellphones and communications towers cause cancer, the industry should ask how cellphones prevent the human body from curing the disease.1

It’s a pivotal moment in the film, coming after descriptions of numerous cases linking cell towers and phones to biological harm: cancer clusters in a small town, the collapse of bee colonies, the decline of migratory bird populations, and a rising number of people afflicted by electromagnetic hypersensitivity (a popular butt of jokes about crazies wearing aluminum hats).

The Crime of Chernobyl - A Model for Fukushima

The crime of Chernobyl – a model for Fukushima
by Wladimir Tchertkoff, author of “The Crime of Chernobyl: the Nuclear Gulag”
April 2013

For a quarter of a century a systematic crime against humanity has been perpetrated by people in senior positions at the heart of Europe. The people living in Western Europe, so advanced technologically, remain indifferent and largely disinformed. In order to preserve the consensus around the military and civilian nuclear industry, the nuclear lobby and the official medical establishment have, for the past 26 years, knowingly condemned millions of human guinea pigs to an experiment on their bodies with new diseases in the vast laboratory provided by the territories contaminated by Chernobyl. Children are being treated like laboratory animals, under observation from French and German scientists, and French NGO’s like the CEPN, Mutadis Consultants, ETHOS and CORE, who must take their share of the responsibility. (Translator’s note: CEPN is the Centre d’étude sur l’Evaluation de la Protection dans le domaine Nucléaire ; Mutadis, ETHOS and CORE are all offshoots of the French nuclear industry, financed either through Electricité de France or the Autorité de Sureté Nucléaire.)


Photo 2005: Suffering from thyroid cancer, Oleg Shapiro, 54, and Dima Bogdanovich, 13, receive care at a thyroid hospital in Minsk, where surgery is performed on a daily basis. As a liquidator, Oleg was exposed to extreme levels of radiation. It was his third thyroid operation. Dima’s mother claims that Chernobyl’s nuclear fallout is responsible for her son’s cancer, but his doctors are more cautious: Belarusian officials are often instructed to downplay the severity of the radiation. Ref: National Geographic, March 2014.


The same fate awaits the Japanese people and their children living in areas contaminated by the Fukushima disaster because the same strategy is being put in place in Japan with the same players, the same pseudo-scientific justifications and under the aegis of the same authorities.

France: Meeting to Debate HPV Vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix

Michèle Rivasi, MEP
"To paraphrase [Michèle Rivasi's] words, these vaccines are unnecessary, dangerous to many, and certainly a huge drain on precious public health funds. To halt HPV vaccination programs, pending intense investigation and proof of stated purpose could very well be the salvation of our young people."

France: Meeting to debate HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix
by Norma Erickson, sanevax.org, 25 June 2014

Paris, 23 June 2014: A three hour discussion was held during which various medical professionals, politicians, and health authorities had the opportunity to openly debate serious concerns about the HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix.

Dr. Philippe de Chazournes recently sponsored an open letter to the French Minister of Health calling for the establishment of a parliamentary mission to investigate various aspects of HPV vaccination campaigns. (more information here) Over 200 medical professionals signed the letter confirming their agreement with the stated concerns about the safety, efficacy, and necessity of using Gardasil and Cervarix in national cervical cancer prevention programs.

Michele Rivasi, MEP, chaired roundtable discussions pertaining to the questions raised in Dr. de Chazournes’ letter to the French Health Ministry.

France: Text Adopted by the Senate for Better Regulation of Electromagnetic Waves

The draft text also aims to render
obligatory in primary schools the
deactivating of wireless equipment
when not being used for pedagogical
activities.
Text Adopted by the Senate for better regulation of electromagnetic waves
SudOuest.fr, avec AFP, 26 June 2014 (translated by the Editor of this blog)

The official text of the draft law is available here in French.

The Senate adopted Wednesday a text for better regulation of exposure of people to electromagnetic waves

The Senate adopted at first reading on Wednesday [25 June 2014] the draft law of the Ecologists for better regulation of exposure to electromagnetic waves, which affects in particular users of cell phones.

163 senators voted in favor of the text and 149 against. From the left, socialists, ecologists and communists voted in favor. In contrast, the RDSE group (majority PRG – Radical Party of the Left) opposed it, as did the UMP (Union for a Popular Movement). All the centrists abstained. The draft law must go to the National Assembly for a second reading where it had been adopted on 23 January this year.

Its objective is to set in stone the principle of “sobriété” [translated: “circumstance moderateness”] regarding exposure to waves from cell phones, Wi-Fi routers and relay antennas, and not a “principle of precaution” as the ecologists had proposed in an initial text a year ago. It foresees, among other things, coordination on several levels during installation of radioelectric equipment and better information on emission sources, and bans advertising for tablets destined for those under 14 years of age (at risk of a 75,000-euro fine), as is already the case for cell phones.

Wi-Fi Radiation - New Device Makes It Visible At Last

Cell phone in Wi-Fi mode - the red swirls
above the phone show that the strongest
signal is found nearest the phone.  
As pretty as these images are [of the strength of wireless signals], let’s not forget that these swirling colors let us see pulsed digital radiation (a.k.a electromagnetic fields) which thousands of studies link to adverse biological effects and a myriad of diseases and illnesses including cancer, brain tumors, infertility, DNA damage, suppression of the immune system and much more.

WiFi Radiation – New Device Makes It Visible At Last
Posted by Lloyd Burrell, electricsense.com, 23 June 2014

Luis Hernan has produced a series of photographs that show the strength of wireless signals according to color.

He’s also produced an app that can be downloaded to a smart phone which can act as a very basic EMF detector. The app is free.

Wi-Fi radiation at building entrance -
interesting to see about halfway up the steps
there is less Wi-Fi radiation than further away
from the building and then the radiation gets
stronger as you go nearer the entrance.



I spoke to Luis yesterday about his device and how he produced these photos. Here is the color code Luis used so you can understand his photos:

Blue – denotes the weakest signal
Violet – slightly stronger
Green – slightly stronger
Yellow – slightly stronger
Red – strongest signal

Here are Luis’s photos and underneath are my comments:
[See original article.  We have posted two photos here.]

How These Images Were Created

Luis used a DSLR camera mounted on a tripod. He took these pictures using long exposure photography. So he left the aperture open for about 5 minutes. Then he used what he calls an “Arduino based Kirlian device”. This is essentially a WiFi sensor connected to a simple processor connected to an LED strip. It’s the LED strip that makes the colors.

These pictures were created by Luis moving his device through the whilst taking the photo. Luis wore dark clothes to avoid being included in the photo.

Mobile Addiction Hastens Environmental and Health Risks

Mobile Addiction Hastens Environmental and Health Risks
by Richard Maxwell, Ph.D. and Toby Miller, Ph.D. in Greening the Media, 4 July 2013

Is Our Craven Love of the High Tech Life Doing More Harm Than Good?

We love our cellphones and other mobile devices for the continuous connectivity they provide while we’re on the move. On average, Americans check their smartphones for messages 150 times a day—that’s about once every six and a half minutes. Human mobility and mobile communication would seem to fit hand in glove.1

We have embraced this technology so much that a growing number of us feel strangely adrift without it. Akin to “wedding day jitters” or nervous visits to the dentist, a peculiar anxiety accompanies the loss of mobile connection. Researchers in the UK have come up with the term Nomophobia—short for “no mobile phobia”—to focus attention on the potential downside of our dependence on these things.2The website nomophobia.com provides counseling for sufferers. Could big pharmaceuticals be closing in on this trend as well?

Massachusetts: Why the Hilltowns Need to Regulate Antenna Placement

This text, originally published in the West County Independent, Shelburne Falls, was written by Jonathan Mirin, whose wife, Godeliève, is electro-hypersensitive.  AT&T is proposing to erect a 100-foot cell tower on the road where they live. The tower could have an impact on the health of Shelburne residents, which include elderly people and children living about 75 meters from the tower. The sharpest spike in health effects, such as the cancer clusters which have been documented around the world, tend to occur within 500 meters. 

We have been "attacked" by the pro-tower comment below, requesting us to remove the beautiful photograph of the Bridge of Flowers. Obviously, this person has no conception of the very real health risks of electromagnetic radiation, to which we are all susceptible and what it is like to be electro-hypersensitive.

Why the Hilltowns Need to Regulate Antenna Placement or All I Really Need to Know I Learned After My Wife Got Sick
by Jonathan Mirin, West County Independent, 19 June 2014

"Doubt is our product since it is the best means of competing with the 'body of fact' that exists in the minds of the general public. It is also the means of establishing a controversy."
- Tobacco executive internal memo, 1969

History was never my favorite subject. I preferred English, theatre, religion — subjects where the imagination seemed unrestricted by the weight of historical facts. Of course, I had heard the truism about not being able to understand the present without knowing the past. I appreciated the idea intellectually. But it wasn't until my wife became sick in spring of 2010 and we came to understand, after three torturous years, in the fall of 2012, that the root of her suffering was that she was sensitive to "RF" (radio-frequency) wireless radiation of the sort emitted by cell towers, cell phones, computers trying to pick up Wi-fi, Wi-fi enabled routers, cordless phones, tablets, our electric meter, etc. etc. etc.

Swiss Farmers' Union Publishes Two Fact Sheets on Electrosmog

Swiss Farmers’ Union publishes two fact sheets on electrosmog
by Hans-U. Jacob, www.gigaherz.ch, 6 June 2014 (summary of article in German, "Äs taget bim Schwyzer Pure Association - Morgendämmerung beim Schweizerischen Bauernverband",  by the Editor of this blog)

With so many farmers having damaged animals, the Swiss Farmers’ Union (Schweizer Bauernverband) turned to the association Gigaherz for information on non-ionizing radiation. The Union is very well represented in the Federal Council in Bern. The pressure of Union members complaining about harm to animals and people became so great that the association was forced to act.

Both fact sheets begin with the same text:
Again and again farmers log on to the SBV (Farmers’ Union) and complain about health problems in their herds, which they attribute to different external influences, summarized as "electrosmog" : mobile phone antennas, radio antennas, railway lines, power lines, electric and magnetic fields, and other technical equipment...

The Globalization of Cancer

RE-POSTED 21 June 2014: The number of cancers being diagnosed in the world each year has leaped to more than 14 million, says the World Health Organization.  Developing countries are disproportionately affected by the increasing numbers of cancers. More than 60% of the world’s total cases occur in Africa, Asia, and Central and South America, and these regions account for about 70% of the world’s cancer deaths, a situation that is made worse by the lack of early detection and access to treatment.

This March 2012 post is based on an article by Dr. Annie Sasco about the globalization of cancer.  I wish to thank SOS pour un Monde Meilleur for having shared this information with me. 

“Dr. Sasco has been a cancer epidemiologist for 25 years and has worked for 22 years at the IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer).  She is currently at the University Victor Segalen, Bordeaux, France, where she directs an INSERM (Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale) epidemiological team for the prevention of cancer.  Founding member of an equitable coffee trade group several years ago, she defines herself as a feminist and world citizen, a mix of ’68 and Harvard.    She has done an immense and remarkable work informing the population on the disaster and explosion of cancer that we cannot stop without mobilization of the public.   Our toxic, harmful carcinogenic products and out-dated medicines are being exported to less favored populations.   How can we still tolerate that these products, which have been declared “toxic” in our industrialized countries, continue to be distributed on the African continent and elsewhere notably by saying, “this is going to treat you, it is good for you …”  

Each of us can react and is partially responsible. 

In Developing World, Pollution Kills More Than Disease

In Developing World, Pollution Kills More Than Disease
by Stephen Leahy, IPS News,
15 June 2014

UXBRIDGE, Canada - Pollution, not disease, is the biggest killer in the developing world, taking the lives of more than 8.4 million people each year, a new analysis shows. That’s almost three times the deaths caused by malaria and fourteen times those caused by HIV/AIDs. However, pollution receives a fraction of the interest from the global community.

“Toxic sites along with air and water pollution impose a tremendous burden on the health systems of developing countries,” said Richard Fuller, president of the Pure Earth/Blacksmith Institute, which prepared the analysis as part of The Global Alliance on Health and Pollution (GAHP). GAHP is a collaborative body of bilateral, multilateral, and international agencies, national governments, academia and civil society.

Breast Cancer and Cell Phone Radiation: A Special Relationship

Here is one special relationship between cell phone radiation. The following article describes another: breast cancer tumor cells absorb significantly more radiofrequency radiation than other cancer cell types. Women being treated for breast cancer should curtail their use of cell phones.

Breast cancer and cell phone radiation: A special relationship
by Don Maisch, emfacts.com, 27 May 2012

Following on from the last message, there is evidence that breast cancer tumors are especially sensitive to microwaves because breast cancer tumour cells absorb significantly more radiofrequency radiation than other cancer cell types, or healthy tissue for that matter.

According to a paper by Joines et al, 1993, “In general, at all frequencies tested [50 to 900 MHz], both conductivity and relative permittivity were greater in malignant tissue than in normal tissue of the same type. For tissues of the same type, the differences in electrical properties from normal to malignant were least for kidney (about 6% and 4% average differences over the frequency range in permittivity and conductivity, respectively), and these differences were the greatest for mammary gland (about 233% and 577% average differences in permittivity and conductivity, respectively)

French Researcher Finds That Monsanto's Roundup Damages Sperm

Seralini and co. found that sperm damage could
occur even in small doses.
New Seralini Study: Even a Small Amount of Roundup Damages Sperm Months Later
by Nick Meyer, althealthworks.com, 17 June 2014

A new study conducted by a team including well known French researcher Gilles-Éric Séralini has found that the Monsanto company’s flagship Roundup weedkiller product poses a special threat to sperm health even at relatively minuscule levels, according to an article from the website GM Watch.

The study showed that sperm in males exposed to only 8 days of Roundup at a concentration of just .0.5% began to show abnormal sperm formation in the months following the brief exposure to the ubiquitous weed-killing chemical, which is sprayed widely in the United States and often found in rain, tap water and other samples.

19 Ways They Are Giving Us Cancer

Mammograms cause cancer by exposing the body to ionizing
radiation that can be 1,000 times greater than that from a
chest x-ray, which we know poses a cancer risk.
BPA, fluoride, pesticides, paraben, aluminum, chemtrails/geoengineering, sunscreen, sugar, common and medical radiation, cell phones, mercury, vaccines, dental fillings, light bulbs, high fructose corn syrup, microwave ovens, food irradiation, aspartame, chlorine, sodium nitrate and other preservatives, nuclear radiation, genetically modified crops...

19 Ways They Are Giving Us Cancer
livefreelivenatural.com, 21 March 2014

“In earlier times it was easier to control a million people than physically to kill a million people. Today it is infinitely easier to kill a million people then to control a million people.” - Zbigniew Brzezinski (Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group, Carter/Obama Advisor).

The cancer epidemic is a soft-kill operation and a move by the world’s so-called elites to cull the human population. It is well documented that the Club of Rome, Bill Gates, Ted Turner, the Rockefellers, Warren Buffet and many other globalists plan to dominate and decimate humanity with their population reduction agenda.

As we will see, the globalists first cause the cancer and then provide us with their ineffective treatments (not cures) for profit. This method is known as Problem – Reaction – Solution.

According to the American Cancer Society, 1,638,910 new cancer cases will arise in the United States during 2012. Approximately 577,190 American cancer patients are expected to die from their cancer this year as well. One in every two men will suffer from cancer (one in four will die) as will one in every three women (one in five will die). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cancer is the second leading cause of death, closely trailing heart disease.

What a Shaman Sees in a Mental Hospital


"Those who develop so-called mental disorders are those who are sensitive, which is viewed in Western culture as oversensitivity. Indigenous cultures don’t see it that way and, as a result, sensitive people don’t experience themselves as overly sensitive. In the West, “it is the overload of the culture they’re in that is just wrecking them,” observes Dr. Somé. The frenetic pace, the bombardment of the senses, and the violent energy that characterize Western culture can overwhelm sensitive people."

What a Shaman Sees in a Mental Hospital
Kristopher Love, thespiritscience.net, 16 June 2014

The Shamanic View of Mental Illness

In the shamanic view, mental illness signals “the birth of a healer,” explains Malidoma Patrice Somé. Thus, mental disorders are spiritual emergencies, spiritual crises, and need to be regarded as such to aid the healer in being born.

What those in the West view as mental illness, the Dagara people regard as “good news from the other world.” The person going through the crisis has been chosen as a medium for a message to the community that needs to be communicated from the spirit realm. “Mental disorder, behavioral disorder of all kinds, signal the fact that two obviously incompatible energies have merged into the same field,” says Dr. Somé. These disturbances result when the person does not get assistance in dealing with the presence of the energy from the spirit realm.

One of the things Dr. Somé encountered when he first came to the United States in 1980 for graduate study was how this country deals with mental illness. When a fellow student was sent to a mental institute due to “nervous depression,” Dr. Somé went to visit him.

“I was so shocked. That was the first time I was brought face to face with what is done here to people exhibiting the same symptoms I’ve seen in my village.”

Radiation from Cell Phones and Wireless Devices Harms Your Unborn Baby's Brain

Exposure to wireless radiation may interfere
with an unborn child's brain development,
resulting in behavioral problems.
“11% of children carry a diagnosis of ADHD,” said Dr. Maya Shetreat-Klein, integrative pediatric neurologist and founder of Brainmending. She added that currently, one out of every five children has been diagnosed with a mental illness. In her own practice, she finds the most common question she is asked by parents is: Why? Why is my child affected? Though Shetreat-Klein can give no real answer to parents — disorders are complex and can’t be explained by a single factor — growing scientific evidence supports the conclusion that in utero exposure is linked to behavioral problems in children.  “Parents have a right to know,” she said before advising pregnant women to turn off their phones and WiFi at night or whenever it’s not needed.

“I would never drink or smoke while pregnant!” Most expectant mothers understand that carrying a child means taking extra safety measures to protect the growing life. Unfortunately, too many mothers-to-be are not aware that, along with chemicals, certain foods, and some beverages, they also need to avoid radiation from phones, wireless routers, and laptop computers in order to safeguard their babies.

Hidden Electromagnetic Fields Are Frying Your Thyroid Gland

Hidden EMF’s Are Frying Your Thyroid Gland
Stephanie A. Buist, healthydebates.com

Many do not know what this is, but soon I believe we will be forced to learn more than we ever wanted to know about it. It is a threat to our society. It can cause illness symptoms in infants, children and adults. Those at highest risk are the individuals with low immunity.

People who are sensitive to EMFs may experience symptoms like:
- Nervous system issues – sleep disturbances, fatigue, jittery feeling
- Muscular aches and pains
- Burning of the eyes and deteriorating eyesight
- Prickling and burning sensations on the skin along with unexplained rashes
- Foggy brain
- Feelings of depression and / or anxiety
- Ear, nose, throat and digestive issues
- Infertility
- Leukemia has been linked to EMF exposure along with breast and other cancer clusters.

BioEM2014 Conference - Day 1: Some Thoughts on EHS, Tablets, and Skin

Mary Redmayne, from Monash University in Australia, made an interesting observation in her presentation about the standard operating position of a tablet computer. The industry considers it to be some 20cm away from the body and at this distance, the compliance of EMF emissions with the safety standards is tested.  However, the general public thinks otherwise and people, including small children, keep tablets on their laps, often for hours at a time. It means that the compliance with the safety standards goes “down the drain”.

BioEM2014 Conference, Cape Town, 8-13 June 2014

Higher Potency Statins Are Linked to Greater Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

In November 2013, the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology revised its guidelines on risk factors for heart disease and stroke.  By loosening thresholds for treating heart disease risk with cholesterol-lowering medications called statins, the recommendations potentially made millions more Americans eligible for the drugs.  In March of this year, Duke University researchers calculated exactly how many more people might find themselves on a prescription under the new guidelines.  According to the data, which was based on heart disease risk factors and heart disease rates among 3,773 people in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) between 2005 and 2010, 56 million Americans between the ages of 40 years and 75 years would be eligible for statins, compared to 43.2 million under the older recommendations -- an increase of nearly 13 million.   (Ref: "New Guidelines May Put 13 Million More on Statins")

Higher Potency Statins Are Linked to a Greater Risk of Type 2 Diabetes
People's Pharmacy, June 12, 2014

Recent guidelines from the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology strongly recommend that everyone with diabetes be prescribed a statin-type cholesterol-lowering medicine. But a new study of nearly 140,000 patients in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom suggests that statins significantly increase the risk of developing diabetes.

Risk of electrosmog at 380 kV power line: A killer of bees?
by Sabine Chaly, salzburger-fenster.at, 
10 June 2014 (translated by Google and the Editor of this blog)

Affected by the 380-kV line, beekeeper warns bees lose their sense of direction.

Bees have a very strong sense of direction - Bees are irritated, they cannot find their way home to their hives. And that's when the electromagnetic fields come in, as has been clearly confirmed by investigations: electrosmog from power lines and cell phone towers interferes with the sense of bees and increases bee deaths. 

Beekeepers warn that electrosmog from the proposed 380-kV transmission line kills bees. Master beekeeper Reinhard Mayrhofer from Bischofshofen, whose hives are located very close to the 380-kV line, voiced his fears in the EIA [environmental impact assessment] procedure. The experts listened to Mayrhofer's objections but hardly voiced any opinion and the concerns of the Salzburger Land Beekeepers Association did not interest them. The beekeeper is outraged.

Interview with Dr. Dominique Belpomme by Radio Canada on Electromagnetic Fields and Electrosensitivity

Electromagnetic Fields Likely to Cause Alzheimer's in Electrosensitive Persons
ici.radio-canada.ca,
6 June 2014

(Summary of Radio-Canada Interview by the Editor of this blog)
Original broadcast in French


Dr. Belpomme, President of ARTAC (Association for Research on Treatment Against Cancer) is asked by the interviewer about his creation nearly three years ago of the European Cancer and Environment Research Institute (ECERI).  The Institute collaborates with 15-20 European teams researching the environmental causes of not only cancer but also other diseases and disorders, including Alzheimer's and autism.

According to Dr. Dominique Belpomme, 80-90% of cancers are linked to the environment. Living was not always “carcinogenic”. Cancer is a recent disease due to the fact that it has become a scourge of huge proportions. Cancer as well as obesity and type 2 diabetes have exploded. We are obliged to ask why. The answer is: life style and pollution:  chemical pollution, pesticides, electromagnetic fields (EMF) produced by wireless technology. Do we continue this technology for purely economic reasons or do we take into account the very high health costs that we will be paying as a result?

"We Need to Reduce Our Families' Exposure to RF/EMF Microwave Radiation"



Following are excerpts from the excellent Website “rfemf.com”, including the transcript of the author of the constitutional argument in the Morrison v. Portland Public Schools and a review of Dr. David Michaels's book, "Doubt Is Their Product".  The site has been set up by a concerned citizen who wants to "make it safer for all the teachers and children in the [California] Petaluma School District".  Here is an account of her personal experience:

A Personal Experience

My next-door neighbor and I were the same age when we got our first cell phones back in 1992, but our choices and outcomes were completely different. Steve Terrel, a Petaluma high graduate, was in medical sales and used his cell phone a lot for his job: driving around, making calls and closing many deals over the next ten years.

I started down the same path, but after the first three months, a haircut revealed a bald spot over my ear — right where I always held my phone. I stopped using that cell phone immediately and didn't get another cell phone for ten years.

Ten Years Later, Where Did We End Up?

Steve, unfortunately, died of a brain tumor in 2002, caused by his cell phone — one of the many such documented cases around the world. I am writing this web site to help you understand the dangers of too much RF/EMF in our lives and in our children's lives.

In the last five years, I have lost four friends to cancer between the ages of 37 to 56 — all of them non-smokers, all of them working in and around wireless technology. Something is up and science is reporting about it daily.

What You Need to Know About Electrosensitivity

Electromagnetic Radiation
Posted by Kerry Crofton, PhD, worldhealth.net, 29 May 2014
(Dr. Crofton is Co-Founder and Executive Director of
Doctors for Safer Schools.)

Is your patient's insomnia, tinnitus or vertigo connected to wireless radiation exposure? What you need to know about ELECTRO-SENSITIVITY

Electro-sensitivity (ES) - a new medical condition – is on the rise and often misdiagnosed.

People of all ages may experience symptoms when exposed to electro-magnetic radiation, especially the microwave radiation emitted by mobile phones, WiFi signals, wirelessly-connected iPads/tablets. laptops, iPods, as well as all Bluetooth devices (in your car?), Smart meters and cell tower antennas.

The primary symptoms: tingling in the hands, tinnitus, insomnia, vertigo and cardiac effects: arrhythmia and tachycardia. There is also evidence of cognitive impairment.

Top Biochemist Calls to Abolish Smart Meters, Wi-Fi in Schools, and Baby Monitors

Top Biochemist Calls to Abolish Smart Meters, WiFi in Schools, and Baby Monitors
by Kevin Samson, Guest, Waking Times,
27 May 2014

Our modern world is creating an electromagnetic soup filled with electrical pulses, radio frequencies, computer screens, wireless signals, as well as personal devices such as cell phones and gadgets that are emitting damaging radiation. There are many peer-reviewed scientific studies drawing conclusions that should concern us all, but particularly for young children and pregnant women. Government agencies are even doing battle amongst themselves over outdated scientific information that still impacts current regulations.

Recently, neuroscientist and professor, Olle Johansson, PhD, offered a comprehensive view of the many issues surrounding EMFs, including an industry-wide attempt by telecom to cover up the negative consequences. It is a must-see lecture that can be viewed here.

Adding further credence to the dangers of EMFs, another well-regarded scientist who has eight international awards for his work, Prof. Martin Pall, a Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University, is also calling for action against common emitters of electromagnetic pollution. In the video below, you will hear how he goes so far as to say that these devices are a biohazard which need to be abolished.

94 Organizations Submitted an Amicus Brief on EHS in the Case of Arthur Firstenberg
by Dafna Tachover, EHS Fights Back, 8 June 2014

On Monday, June 2nd, 2014, I submitted an Amicus Brief to the Appellate Court of the State of New Mexico, in the case of Firstenberg v. Monribot. Usually an Amicus Brief is submitted in support of one of the parties. In our case, the brief intends to support Arthur Firstenberg’s position.

In this case, Arthur Firstenberg, submitted an action against his neighbor for nuisance, claiming that her use of wireless gadgets was harming his health and forced him to leave his house. The first instance ruled that EHS is not a real condition but a psychological problem and the brief was submitted as part of the appeal of the decision

The brief was submitted on behalf of 94 (!) organizations from 22 countries (!) which have decided to join the brief. We did not expect such overwhelming support! I want to thank all of you – the organizations that joined and everyone who helped us get organizations to join and there were many! The list of organizations is listed in the end.

To read the brief, please contact me and I email it to you.

Saying Good-Bye to Wi-Fi - A Waldorf School Takes a Precautionary Step

Is this one way to have Wi-Fi removed from schools? Good ideas here, but it’s not that easy…

Saying Good-Bye to Wi-Fi - A Waldorf School Takes a Precautionary Step
by Ronald E. Koetzsch, PhD

In the summer of 2010, a prospective parent walked into the office of Caroline Askew, admissions director at the City of Lakes Waldorf School in Minneapolis. The parent was an attorney with two young daughters. Caroline is accustomed to answering all kinds of questions from parents, but this mother had questions and concerns that Caroline had never heard before.

The parent first inquired whether or not the school utilized a WiFi system – an array of wireless transmitters that allows persons with laptop computers or smartphones to access the Internet and their email from any location in the building. On learning that WiFi was in use, she asked Caroline, “Would the school be open to the possibility of removing the system?” WiFi transmitters constantly emit pulsed radio frequency radiation (RFR), and this mother was concerned about the possible effect on the health of her children. She had done much research and had compiled a collection of documents – articles from scientific journals and abstracts of scientific papers – that pointed to the possible dangers of microwave radiation in a WiFi environment. She asked Caroline if the school would be willing to consider those documents in order to make an informed judgment.

Canada: Martin Weatherall Announces His Candidacy for Mayor of Stratford

Martin Weatherall - Health, Safety and Common Sense

Martin Weatherall is announcing his candidacy for Mayor of Stratford.

Press Release, 26 May 2014

During the last four years with Dan Matheson as Mayor, Stratford Council has wasted time and money trying to win the title of 'most intelligent community'. During this time their efforts and those of Festival Hydro have probably done more to harm the City, endanger all its inhabitants and risk the future viability of Stratford than ever before.

Prior to the last election, when the city was planning to place Wi Fi routers on all the city streets and dangerous wireless 'smart meters' on all homes and all businesses, Martin Weatherall addressed City Council, including Matheson. He told them about the dangers of wireless microwave radiation (that these devices emit); he referred to many scientific links to cancer and serious biological effects caused by exposure to wireless radiation.

The BabySafe Project: Protecting Pregnant Women from Exposure to Wireless Radiation

Dr. Devra Davis speaks at the BabySafe
Project press conference.

Another initiative of physicians, scientists and educators to protect children from wireless radiation... this one concerns exposure during pregnancy.  Watch the Press Conference announcing this project which took place in New York on 3 June 2014.  Speakers include Dr. Hugh Taylor who talks about behavioral effects, Dr. Devra Davis, about DNA, brain, and testes damage, Dr. Maya Shetreat-Klein, pediatric neurologist, about behavioral problems.  The question and answer part of the conference is especially interesting.

Joint Statement on Pregnancy and Wireless Radiation
www.babysafeproject.org

We join together as physicians, scientists and educators to express our concern about the risk that wireless radiation poses to pregnancy and to urge pregnant women to limit their exposures.


We recognize that the exquisitely delicate systems that direct the development of human life are vulnerable to environmental insults, and that even minute exposures during critical windows of development may have serious and life-long consequences.

Switzerland and Electrosmog: Wake Up Before It Is Too Late!

This image was published in "GHI" in 2002, a newspaper
delivered to every household in the canton of Geneva.
Reading about the history of development of wireless technologies in Switzerland, it seems that the country is regressing in terms of caring for the health of its population.

Today, in 2014, the health authorities are not speaking out, especially regarding precautionary measures which continue to lie, invisible to the general public, in their official documents.  The media used to report on these. Today it does not.  The authorities seem to follow the national studies which have declared there are no harmful non-thermal biological effects from wireless technologies, while hundreds, indeed, several thousand international studies have demonstrated the opposite.

The advertising of the telecommunications operators and manufacturers has done a splendid job of luring people into buying the latest gadgets and applications and creating addictions to them.  Revenue from these ads silences the media from reporting on health effects.  Revenue from shares in telecoms companies silences members of Parliament.

Health professionals receive no education on how to diagnose and treat environmental sensitivities.  Heavily influenced by the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, they know only how to prescribe medication for existing diseases and use expensive diagnostic tools to identify these illnesses.

Just as in the United States, there is a move in Switzerland to provide every student with a tablet from a young age, which requires installation of Wi-Fi in classrooms.

The electrosensitive, comprising at least 5% of the population - some 400,000 persons - are getting sicker from the proliferation of this technology.  No one cares about them.  They are being treated far worse than handicapped persons, by being ridiculed, ostracized, labeled crazy, just plain ignored.  Their electrosensitivity is neither recognized nor compensated, nor are they provided safer environments in which to live and work.

So, people remain ignorant, meanwhile each day radiating themselves with their beloved gadgets, worse, radiating their children.

No one is taking responsibility for their health - not themselves, not physicians, not educators, not politicians, not even parents.  Only when their own children start getting sick from this technology will they wake up - and then, it will probably be too late.
