Cell Phones Violate Radiation Limits: Doctor Calls For Urgent Action To Update Cell Phone Radiation Tests

“This is not just an European issue, it is an international scandal,“ stated Arazi, pointing out that all countries’ regulations are outdated. “Professor Om Gandhi—one of the originators of the test limits 30 years ago—says that if these numbers were converted to the US testing regime, we are talking about the reality that some cell phones exceed US regulatory limits by over 9 times the limit.”

Scientific lecture marks the first time European government test results were shared with US audience. 
[See original article for lecture or link on this blog.]

7/31/2017: French physician Marc Arazi presented recently released results of cell phone tests conducted by France’s national government agency ANFR that found most cell phones can emit more radiation into human users than manufacturers report. The France documentation shows that many cell phones on the market can exceed allowable limits by over three times.

The cell phone radiation absorption measurements of the over 350 cell phones France tested were presented in an expert scientific symposium in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on July 31, 2017 sponsored by Environmental Health Trust. This lecture marks the first time the test measurements have been presented in the United States by an expert from France.

Harvard study strengthens link between breast cancer risk and light exposure at night
theconversation.com, 18 August 2017

A new study from Harvard has found greater risk of breast cancer in women who live in neighborhoods that have higher levels of outdoor light during the night.

The findings are based on the Nurses’ Health Study (NHS), which has for decades been advancing our understanding of risks to women’s health.

For this study, epidemiologist Peter James and colleagues followed nurses in the NHS for breast cancer occurrence from 1989 to 2013. The home of each of 109,672 nurses was geocoded, and the average light level in the immediate neighborhood at night was estimated from satellite images taken by the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program. These estimates were updated over the 15-year follow-up period. By 2013, a total of 3,549 new cases of breast cancer had been diagnosed, about what’s expected among this number of women.

Jason Saine’s editorial in the Gazette, Thursday July 27, touts the wonders of the 5G Network. Well, it’s a wonder all right! It’s a wonder to me that the North Carolina legislature can pass a bill with such drastic consequences without any public debate or education, so let me try to explain what just happened to you without your knowledge. I regret to say that our good friend John Torbett also sponsored HB310, the 5G Network bill. Apparently, the only information our legislators weighed was from the 5G corporations and their associations.

California Wireless Legislation: Paid for by AT&T Et Al.
by Bruce Kushnick, Contributor / Executive Director, The Huffington Post, 16 May 2017

There is a proposed piece of legislation in California for the deployment of lots of small wireless cell antennas, and this is also happening simultaneously in other states, Congress and at the FCC. And, wouldn’t you know it; those who benefit the most from these state and federal gifts are AT&T et al., the companies who are also funding and engineering these campaigns. In fact, these state bills appear to be based on ‘model legislation’ that was created by the Wireless Infrastructure Association, WIA and by ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Counsel.

The California Senate Bill, No. 649, would essentially allow companies to not have to bother with any of those pesky local zoning laws.

Major Targeted Individual Class Action Lawsuits Are Coming in 2017

David can defeat Goliath.

This article concerns targeted individuals and electromagnetic weapons, but all of us are in fact "victims" being assaulted by electromagnetic radiation (EMR).  Exposure to EMR has never been proven to be safe, and those imposing this radiation on us and especially on young children, should be held accountable for their crimes.

Major Targeted Individual Class Action Lawsuits Are Coming in 2017...
freedomsos.com, 16 January 2017

Targeted Individuals have a very big case, as the crimes carried out against us are very serious — and make no mistake, they are crimes. The “experiment” excuse is a bogus cop-out. Due to the magnitude of the case, a single attorney or smaller firm is not the way to go, but if you feel like that is the right path for you, then by all means pursue it. The beauty of America, and our legal system, is that it’s an ever expanding body of precedents and case law, and anyone can get involved in the process — don’t be intimidated by it. So if you disagree, then I truly hope you pursue your own legal strategy as well. I’m not an attorney, however, the legal team that is advising me realizes that it will take a large coalition of litigation powerhouses to try this case. I agree 100%, and I'll be putting everything I have into this strategy.

U.S. Diplomats in Cuba Were Injured by a 'Sonic Weapon.' What Is That?

"The damage caused by acoustic weapons can vary from minor irritation to death."

U.S. Diplomats in Cuba Were Injured by a 'Sonic Weapon.' What Is That?
by Kate Samuelson,and Justin Worland, Time, 
10 August 2017

A group of American diplomats in Havana, Cuba have suffered severe and unexplained hearing loss over the past year, which U.S. officials believe was caused by a covert and advanced sonic device.

The severity of some of the diplomats' symptoms has forced them to cancel their Cuba tours early and return to the U.S. for treatment, the Associated Press reports.

But what exactly is a sonic device, how common are they, and how much damage can they actually cause? Here's what to know.

What weapons was used to hurt diplomats in Cuba?

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the government does not "have any definitive answers about the source" of the attack. It is continuing to investigate what may have caused the diplomats' injuries.

However, U.S. officials who spoke anonymously to the AP said that the hearing loss was caused by a device deployed either inside or near the diplomats' residences. The devices emitted a sound that was not audible to human ears, they added. That would indicate it was most likely an infrasonic or ultrasonic weapon.

Infrasonic weapons can cause physical pain without detection, though they usually target the entire body rather than just the eardrums.

Switzerland: Niedersteufen: Resistance to Salt's Planned New Mobile Antenna

The proposed antenna is not necessary, is in the wrong place and much too close to permanently inhabited buildings including workplaces and a nursery...

Resistance to new mobile radio antenna

14 August 2017

Salt wants to install a new mobile radio antenna at Rütihof.

The telecommunications company Salt (formerly Orange) is planning to build a new mobile antenna system in Niedersteufen. On the other hand, there is opposition in the neighborhood.

Salt wants to improve the reception in the Rütihof area with the new facility and to set up an antenna on the industrial building at Rütihofstrasse 1, where the children's home is located next to various industrial companies...

The inhabitants of the area (residents and tenants) within a radius of 524 meters are allowed to speak up.

The two residents Elmar Müller and Daniel Ehrenzeller and their families feel directly affected. Daniel Ehrenkeller's family lives within a distance of just 60 meters. As he learned, there was a need for tenants in the industrial building, which is located on the only small industrial and commercial zone in the area.

Michigan: DTE Energy Shutting Off Power of Residents Opposed to Smart Meters

DTE Energy shutting off power of residents opposed to smart meters

16 August 2017

ANN ARBOR, MI - People who've been holding out in recent years and opposing the installation of new digital electric meters on their homes are now having their power shut off by DTE Energy.

Dozens of people from southeast Michigan and beyond gathered to protest DTE's actions on Monday, Aug. 14, outside the Ann Arbor home of Linda Kurtz, director of the Smart Meter Education Network.

Kurtz said she's aware of at least 11 people in Ann Arbor who recently received shutoff notices from DTE because of their resistance to converting to new meter technology. Of the eight who are still resisting, she said, four had their power shut off on Monday.

Kurtz, a 55-year-old craniosacral therapist, and others who demonstrated on her property are concerned about electromagnetic fields generated by so-called "smart meters." They argue the radio frequencies are harmful to human health and are especially distressing for people with electromagnetic hypersensitivity.

Geoengineering Is Causing Lethal UV Radiation Exposure
by Dane Wigington
GeoengineeringWatch.org, 15 August 2017

(Extracts)

Does the sun feel scorchingly hot? Does it feel much more intense than in decades now past? It is not your imagination. Not only are UV-B radiation levels escalating exponentially, so is the even more dangerous UV-C spectrum. All official UV monitoring sources tell us that lethal UV-C radiation from the sun is stopped 100,000 feet up by our atmosphere. Official agencies tell us that no UV-C radiation penetrates the atmosphere below 100,000 feet of elevation. These are blatant, glaring, and very dangerous lies. GeoengineeringWatch.org continues to work directly with a former NASA aeronautics engineer (a veteran of 40 years in the field of atmospheric study and ozone depletion) who is doing his best to sound the alarm on the critical UV radiation danger. Ongoing covert global climate engineering programs are destroying Earth’s protective ozone layer. Many mainstream sources confirm ozone damage "will" occur from geoegineering (along with countless other consequences), though such sources still will not admit geoengineering has long since been fully deployed.

Americans Are on More Drugs Than Ever

Americans Are on More Drugs Than Ever
by Dr. Mercola, 15 August 2017

Story at-a-glance

  • More than half of U.S. adults regularly take prescription medications, and the average adult takes four
  • More than 2 million serious adverse drug reactions (ADRs) occur every year in the U.S, leading to 100,000 deaths
  • ADRs are the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S., causing more deaths than pulmonary disease, diabetes, AIDS, pneumonia and accidents, including car accidents


If you’re a U.S. adult and don’t regularly take a prescription drug, you’re now in the minority, according to a survey of nearly 2,000 U.S. adults by Consumer Reports.1 The revealing sample found that more than half of U.S. adults regularly take prescription medications, and the average adult takes four. If it seems like your friends and family are taking more drugs than they did in the past — or if adults use more meds than they did when you were a kid — it’s not in your imagination, either.

“The Brain Cancer That’s Killing Ballplayers” headlined New York Times Aug. 14. No reason is cited but callers told reporter Jere Longman to consider the radar guns that measure speed of pitches. He said he would.

The two-column length story says researchers who have looked at three other cases of cancer in Philadelphia Phillies have been unable to explain them except that they might be a “coincidence.”

NYT further adds that “possible cancer clusters are notoriously hard to prove.”

Radiation health advocates sent Longman O’Dwyer stories that point a finger at the microwave radar guns that measure the speed of every pitch. He told them he would look into that suggestion.

PHILADELPHIA — Since Darren Daulton succumbed to brain cancer on Aug. 6, heartfelt tributes have honored the way he led a raucous Philliesteam to the World Series in 1993.

And unanswered questions have surfaced about the way he died.

Daulton and several prominent contemporaries in baseball — including at least three other Phillies who played at Veterans Stadium, the team’s home from 1971 to 2003 — have died of glioblastoma, according to news media accounts. It is considered the most aggressive and frequently diagnosed form of malignant brain tumor.

Researchers who have examined the baseball cases for years say there is insufficient evidence to determine whether they represent anything more than coincidence. Possible cancer clusters are notoriously hard to prove. Most of the time, upon rigorous examination, no cause can be identified and the cases are considered random.

“There is almost never an explanation for them,” said Timothy R. Rebbeck, a cancer epidemiologist at Harvard and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute who has studied the Phillies cases.

Still, Phillies from that era are curious, some even unnerved, about whether there is any connection between brain cancer and baseball. In particular, they wonder if there is any association with Veterans Stadium, which was built on marshland and was demolished in 2004.

Many baseball players and Umpires had brain tumours. Did they all use cell phones? or was it the Radar Guns measuring the speed of the ball?

” All professional Baseball players have it rough. There is no doubt about it. I have known at least one personally and all the way from his farm team days to the big time under the bright lights, it has been an incredibly trying time both physically and emotionally. Long hours away from home and family are just one of the hallmarks of baseball’s commitments. All baseball players use cellphones to fill the long hours hours away from home. So why are the GBM’s are on the rise in just the pitchers, and catchers . It is no coincidence that this is the area of the brain closest to which the cell phone is held. Baseball players (even retired) probably use their cell phones often as they are on the road often. So why don’t we see the left or right fielders, coaches, or first basemen inordinately coming down with brain tumors on a similar basis?

Wi-Fi Health Advocates Fight 'Huge' Radiation Transmitters

Wi-Fi Health Advocates Fight 'Huge' Radiation Transmitters
by Jack O'Dwyerwww.odwyerpr.com, 14 August 2017

Wi-Fi health advocates including Manhattan Neighbors for Safer Telecommunications fight “refrigerator-size” radiation devices near homes.

The Fifth Generation (5G) transmitters only work for short distances, requiring hundreds of thousands of bulky devices throughout the nation, say health advocates.

The Federal Communications Commission does not acknowledge harm from electro-magnetic radiation below the level in which body temperatures are raised. However, credible scientists say there is evidence that some harm does occur. At least 5% of people have been found to be overtly extra-sensitive to such radiation.

Two hundred and twenty scientists from 41 nations have expressed concern over the dangers of radiation and have proposed safeguards.

Advocates Target NY Leaders

Advocates are currently targeting Gov. Cuomo and New York Dept of Environmental Conservation, which is considering rule-making that would exempt from environmental review projects on existing structures including those with no transmitters.

Deadly Brain Tumor Rates Rise In U.S. And Europe – Cell Phones To Blame?

Deadly Brain Tumor Rates Rise In U.S. And Europe – Cell Phones To Blame?
by Dr. Ellis Evans, Natural Blaze, 27 May 2017

[View original article for graphs.]

Deadly brain tumour rates on the increase in the UK, US, Denmark, Netherlands and Sweden, is it attributable to mobile phones?

A simple question posed by the telecommunications industries and its regulators is oft quoted “if exposure to mobile phone frequencies causes cancer, why are cancer rates falling?” Within the past year or so, this question is slowly being answered and its implications are deeply worrying. Whilst the total number of cancers are falling in some countries, certain ‘rare’ types of brain tumours are rising and these tumours are associated with studies looking at the usage of mobile phones.

Much of the data and information contained in this article can be found at http://www.microwavenews.com(1). It is an excellent source of the latest scientific, medical and epidemiological studies on mobile phone use and its carcinogenic effects on our biology.

Rates of glioblastoma multiforme (IV), an aggressive and deadly form of brain tumour, are increasing in the UK, US, Netherlands, Sweden, and Denmark. This is ominous because as in smoking and cancer induction, a certain time span is required before cancer sets in the body and is recognised as such by medical and scientific bodies. No one is really sure on the latency period between exposure to microwave radiation emitted from cell phone and WIFI router antennas and the induction of carcinogenic processes within the body.

Type 2 Diabetes Rise in Children 'Disturbing'

This article does not look at environmental factors as contributing to type 2 diabetes in children or at the number of hours children spend in front of screens which fosters obesity.  Exposure to electromagnetic radiation from wireless technologies can worsen and even cause diabetes.  

Type 2 diabetes rise in children 'disturbing'
BBC News, 12 August 2017

More than 600 children and teenagers are being treated for type 2 diabetes in England and Wales, and the rise in cases is a "hugely disturbing trend", local councils are warning.

The figures come from a report by child health experts which found 110 more cases among under-19s in 2015-16 than two years previously.

The youngest children affected are aged between five and nine.

Council leaders said urgent action on childhood obesity was needed.

The Local Government Association, which represents councils in England and Wales, added that government cuts to public health budgets had affected their ability to tackle the issue.

Can Cellphones Affect Your Heart Health? A Cardiologist Explains (2013 Article)

Can Cellphones Affect Your Heart Health? A Cardiologist Explains

4 June 2013 

Every time I perform an electrocardiogram (EKG), which measures changes in the heart's electric currents, I am reminded that our bodies are energetic structures.

This is why it's worth considering how new technologies, including cellphones, affect the function of our cells. Without a doubt, cellphones can save lives. They enable quicker notification of emergency medical services, speed up transmission of medical records, and expedite the recording of an EKG for rhythm analysis.

But should we be worried about how cellphones affect the function of the heart, especially because so many of us carry these gadgets in our pocket right over our ticker?

Female Infertility & Cell Phone Radiation
Electromagnetic Radiation Safety,
11 August 2017

Although we have considerable evidence that cell phone radiation damages sperm and is associated with male infertility, little attention has been paid to studying the effects of cell phone radiation on female infertility.*

A newly published study by Courtney Lynch and her colleagues found for women trying to get pregnant that stress as measured by the alpha-amylase levels in their saliva predicted whether they were successful. The researchers found that women with the highest levels of this enzyme in their saliva had a 29 percent lower probability of pregnancy compared to those with the lowest levels.

Although this study did not examine EMF exposure, earlier research published by Christoph Augner and his colleagues found that people who lived within 100 meters of cell phone towers had greater salivary alpha-amylase levels. In an experimental study, the researchers found that exposure to higher levels of GSM cell tower radiation increased the levels of this salivary enzyme.

In a 2013 review paper, Nazıroğlu and colleagues examined research on the effects of Wi-Fi and mobile phone radiation on reproductive signaling pathways. They reported that this radiation is related to "oxidative stress and overproduction of free oxygen radicals in female and male infertility." The authors concluded that "the role of EMR from mobile phones and wireless devices in female and male fertility should be investigated."

Cancer Expert Declares Cell Phone And Wireless Radiation As Carcinogenic To Humans

Cancer Expert Declares Cell Phone And Wireless Radiation As Carcinogenic To Humans
Environmental Health Trust, August 2017

Dr. Anthony Miller: Longtime World Health Organization advisor updates opinion linking wireless exposures to cancer based on new scientific evidence.

JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING – An expert cancer researcher and advisor to the World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer (WHO/IARC) has issued his scientific opinion that radiofrequency (RF) radiation from any source – such as the signals emitted by cell phones, other wireless and cordless and sensor devices, and wireless networks – fully meets criteria to be classified as a “Group 1 carcinogenic to humans” agent, based on scientific evidence associating RF exposure to cancer development and cancer promotion.

“The evidence indicating wireless is carcinogenic has increased and can no longer be ignored,” stated Dr. Anthony B. Miller at a July 31, 2017 lecture in Jackson Hole, Wyoming sponsored by the Environmental Health Trust where international experts presented the best available science on cell phone and wireless radiation. In 2011, WHO/IARC classified RF radiation from any source as a “Group 2B possibly carcinogenic to human” agent. Miller believes the evidence published since 2011 fulfills the requirements to re-classify RF radiation as a “Group 1 carcinogenic to humans” agent.

Genetically Engineering Pigs to Grow Organs for People
by Sarah Zhang, The Atlantia, 10 August 2017

Scientists announce the birth of 37 pigs gene-edited to be better for human transplant.

The idea of transplanting organs from pigs into humans has been around for a long time. And for a long time, xenotransplants—or putting organs from one species into another—has come up against two seemingly insurmountable problems.

The first problem is fairly intuitive: Pig organs provoke a massive and destructive immune response in humans—far more so than an organ from another person. The second problem is less obvious: Pig genomes are rife with DNA sequences of viruses that can infect human cells. In the 1990s, the pharmaceutical giant Novartis planned to throw as much $1 billion at animal-to-human transplant research, only to shutter its research unit after several years of failed experiments.

Volkswagen offers cash incentives to trade in old diesel cars
AFP, 8 August 2017

Carmaker Volkswagen and its subsidiaries said on Tuesday they would offer cash incentives to trade in old diesel cars, as Germany struggles to reduce harmful emissions following a cheating scandal.

The VW brand said it would offer buyers trading in an old diesel a discount on cars meeting the latest Euro 6 emissions standard, ranging from €2,000 on its up! compact cars to €10,000 euros for a Touareg SUV.

And the carmaker proposed an additional discount of between €1,000 and €2,380 for those buying more environmentally friendly hybrid, all-electric or natural-gas-powered vehicles.

VW was "acknowledging its share of responsibility for climate- and health-friendly mobility on German streets," it said in a statement.

Dear California Legislators,

I am Dr. Martin Pall, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University. I am a published and widely cited scientist on the biological effects of electromagnetic fields and speak internationally on this topic. I am particularly expert in how wireless radiation impacts the electrical systems in our bodies. I have published 7 studies showing there exists exquisite sensitivity to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in the voltage sensor in each cell, such that the force impacting our cells at the voltage sensor has massive impact on the biology on the cells of our bodies [1-7]. These papers are discussed in over 360,000 web sites which can be easily found by Googling (Martin Pall electromagnetic). I received my PhD at Caltech, one of the top scientific institutions in the world.

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Martin Pall, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University, has notified California state legislators of the risks involved in the 4G/5G Cellular Base Stations and antennas envisioned in SB.649

Dr. Pall is an expert in how wireless radiation impacts the electrical systems in our bodies. He explains wireless emissions disrupt the electromagnetics of each cell, impacting one aspect of the cell, the voltage sensor, with a force over 7 million times compared other parts of the same cell. The FCC guidelines for microwave radiation consider only potential heating effects from the radiation, but not the electromagnetic effects, he says.

Abstract

Skyrocketing Male Infertility May Threaten Mankind’s Survival

Microwave Exposure Is Decimating Male Reproductive Health
Dr. Mercola: "I personally believe this may be the most significant factor for the observed decrease in male sperm count. You may not recall this, but it was well known in World War II that radar operators could easily create sterility by exposing the groin to radar waves.

Stop using Cellphones

  • Since 2011 the World Health Organization has classified the radiation from cellphones and smartphones as a possible cancer agent.
  • Cellphone radiation also affects your nervous system and can cause or exacerbate electrosensitivity. 
  • 90% of cellphones tested in 2015 broke heating safety limits in ordinary use, as well as causing non-thermal harm:

"A Comment about Health Impacts of Cell Phone Radiation" by Olle Johansson

“A comment about health impacts of cell phone radiation”
by Olle Johansson,
 nyadagbladet.se, 9 August 2017

As we all rapidly are being forced into the new generation of electronic gadgets and wireless services, sometimes referred to as the "Internet of Things", more people are asking themselves if the ever increasing levels of artificial electromagnetic fields (EMFs) really are safe for living organisms, writes Olle Johansson, associate professor at the Karolinska Institute.

In 2013, yet a very interesting 4-minute video about the health impacts of cell phone radiation, featuring Dr. Sanja Gupta, was launched by CNN in the USA:

The Global War on Smoking Is Really Heating Up

The Global War on Smoking Is Really Heating Up
by Sam Chambers, bloomberg.com, 9 August 2017

  • U.K. discusses U.S. nicotine reduction proposal with FDA
  • Tobacco makers face possible global campaign on addictiveness

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s proposal to strip cigarettes of their addictive properties has opened a new front in the international campaign to reduce smoking, with health authorities in at least four other countries studying the idea.

After FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb suggested mandating drastic cuts in nicotine levels, public-health experts in New Zealand last week published an action planrecommending such reductions within five years. Canada and Finland say they’re looking into regulating amounts of the drug in tobacco products, while officials in the U.K.’s Department of Health have discussed the U.S. proposal with FDA representatives, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Cell Tower Health Effects

Cell Tower Health Effects
Electromagnetic Radiation Safety, 7 August 2017

Federal regulations protect the public only from the thermal (i.e., heating) risk due to short-term exposure to high intensity, cell tower radiation. The Federal regulations ignore the hundreds of studies that find harmful bio-effects from long-term exposure to non-thermal levels of cell phone radiation.

The Telecommunications Act of 1996 does not allow communities to stop the siting of cell towers for health reasons. Nevertheless, landlords may be liable for any harm caused by cell phone radiation emitted by towers situated on their property.

Localities need to organize and change the Federal law to protect public health and wildlife from exposure to microwave radiation emitted by mobile phone base stations.

Following are some resources regarding the health effects of exposure to cell tower radiation. I will occasionally update this page.

Electromagnetic Radiation Safety, 7 August 2017

The emergence of 5G, fifth-generation telecommunications networks, has been in the news lately because the wireless industry has been pushing controversial legislation at the state level to expedite the deployment of this technology. The legislation would block the rights of local governments and their citizens to control the installation of cellular antennas in the public “right-of-way.” Cell antennas may be installed on public utility poles every 10-12 houses in urban areas. According to the industry, as many as 50,000 new cell sites will be required in California alone.

Although many major cities and newspapers have opposed this legislation, the potential health risks from the proliferation of new cellular antenna sites have been ignored. These cell antennas will expose the population to new sources of radio frequency radiation including MMWs.

Hong Kong: Screen Time On Rise As Toddlers Given Electronic Devices as 'E-Pacifiers' from Before Age of One

Screen time on rise as Hong Kong toddlers given electronic devices as ‘e-pacifiers’ from before age of one
by Emily Tsangscmp.com, 3 August 2017

Department of Health warns excessive use of screens at such a young age could harm the development of eyes and bones as well as have a negative effect on exercise intake and interpersonal skills

Toddlers in Hong Kong younger than the age of one are being given electronic devices as “e-pacifiers”, while the number of children spending long hours on devices is five times higher than three years ago, the Department of Health has found.

This has led to more family quarrels and sparked worries about the effect on academic performance, according to the department’s survey which polled 1,300 preschool children, primary school pupils and their parents.

According to the poll the median age for toddlers to use a smartphone for the first time was at the age of one.

Doctors warned this habit could hinder the development of children’s eyes and bones, reduce the amount of exercise they take, worsen their interpersonal skills and make them more prone to addictive behaviour in later life.

The Coming Brain Cancer Epidemic

The Coming Brain Cancer Epidemic

Dr. Weeks’ Comment: Cell phones are killing us. No. Correction… We are willingly killing ourselves (and our kids) with cell phones. And obfuscating cell phones companies are accomplices.

We are seduced by the convenience factor of being infinitely “in touch” and we are deaf to the lethality of holding that dangerous device up to our head. Industry has been dishonest and the precautionary principle has been ignored by public health bureaucrats asleep (or remunerated) at the wheel.

Soon, we will learn that cells phones are more lethal in America than guns. Let’s start with an understanding of brain cancer.

Nikola Tesla, you and electro-sensitivity
by Dr. Igor Yakymenkocarelessscience.com, 30 June 2017

Nikola Tesla, the world number one inventor in field of electricity, who discovered both alternative current practical potential and wireless communication principles, seems to be also the first ever victim of electrosensitivity (electrohypersensitivity, electromagnetic hypersensitivity).

This medical condition, when people suffer due to electromagnetic exposure has been described in details by Dr. Olle Johansson from Karolinska Institute, Sweden [1]. Typically people have skin and mucosa related symptoms (itching, smarting, pain, heat sensation), or heart and nervous system disorders after exposure to computer monitors, cell phones and other electromagnetic devices. Also, fatigue, irritation, headache, sleep disorders, hormonal imbalances and even low sex drive were detected in people living in increased levels of radiofrequency radiation, e.g. nearby cell phone base transceiver stations [2, 3]. By the way, in Sweden electrosensitivity is officially recognized medical condition.

What I'm Really Thinking: the Mobile Phone Refusenik

What I’m really thinking: the mobile phone refusenik
Anonymous, The Guardian, 29 July 2017

I don’t consider myself odd. I simply don’t see the appeal

I am part of the tiny minority of people in the UK who choose to live without a mobile phone. You probably think I must be old, anti-technology or just plain weird, but I am none of those things.

I’m in my 30s, use a computer (desktop) and don’t consider myself odd. I simply don’t see the appeal or advantages of a mobile phone. I had one once, 19 years ago, which came free with a bank account. I never used it and I’ve never felt the need to use one since. My husband doesn’t have one, either.

You say you need to be available at all times, yet when I try to call you, your phone is switched off. You say, how can you meet people? I say, what happened to agreeing on a time and place, and just being there? You say you can’t contact me, but I’ve got a landline and I know how to use email. Surely not everything has to happen on WhatsApp, Snapchat or Facebook?

Electrical Grounding Technique May Improve Health Outcomes of NICU Babies

Electrical Grounding Technique May Improve Health Outcomes of NICU Babies
by Penn State University, 
laboratoryequipment.com, 4 August 2017

A technique called "electrical grounding" may moderate preterm infants’ electromagnetic exposure in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and improve their health outcomes, according to Penn State College of Medicine researchers.

Equipment in the NICU produces low-frequency electromagnetic fields that can have subtle yet measurable effects on the autonomic nervous system, the system that regulates involuntary body functions. Preterm infants may be especially vulnerable to these effects.

Previous research in adults has shown that exposure to electromagnetic fields can affect the vagus nerve, a key component of the autonomic nervous system which regulates the body’s internal organs during rest. Previous research also has shown that electrical grounding, which reduces the electrical charge to the body, can improve the functioning of the autonomic nervous system and the vagus nerve, producing improved vagal tone.

EMF Exposure and Reading the Fine Print: The Devil Is in the Details

EMF Exposure and Reading the Fine Print: The Devil Is in the Details
Posted by GreenSwanStaff at November 18th, 2014

Every doctor will tell you that the primary keys to good health include eating right, getting enough exercise, rest and maintaining healthy relationships. Most of us go about our lives trying to avoid circumstances which could adversely affect our health. We expect that we have the information we need to make informed decisions as consumers when we use manufactured goods to enhance our lifestyles. Did you know that you are not supposed to hold your cell phone closer than roughly one inch away from your body when it is connected to a wireless network? Doing so may expose you to emissions which exceed the manufacturer guidelines.

Two years ago, the US Government Accounting Office issued a report on the need for the FCC to reassess the exposure standards for cell phones. In the report they said the following:

“Some consumers may use mobile phones against the body, which the FCC does not currently test, and could result in RF energy exposure higher than the FCC limit.”

Effect of Mobile Phones on Sperm Quality - Studies

Given all the media attention on the decline of sperm counts, with almost no mention of electromagnetic radiation from wireless devices as one possible cause, here are over 30 studies on the effects of mobile phones on sperm quality. Why is the media and the "experts" they quote, not taking these into account?

Proteomic impacts of electromagnetic fields on the male reproductive system. Comp Clin Pathol (2016). doi:10.1007/s00580-016-2342-x. Epub ahead of print: Oct 13, 2016.

Abstract

The use of mobile phones and other wireless transmitting devices is increasing dramatically in developing and developed countries, as is the rate of infertility. A number of respected infertility clinics in Australia, India, USA, and Iran are reporting that those who regularly use mobile phones tend to have reduced sperm quantity and quality. Some experimental studies have found that human sperm exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMF), either simulated or from mobile phones, developed biomarkers of impaired structure and function, as well as reduced quantity. These encompass pathological, endocrine, and proteomic changes. Proteins perform a vast array of functions within living organisms, and the proteome is the entire array of proteins—the ultimate biomolecules in the pathways of DNA transcription to translation. Proteomics is the art and science of studying all proteins in cells, using different techniques. This paper reviews proteomic experimental and clinical evidence that EMF acts as a male-mediated teratogen and contributor to infertility.

It's Been a Bad Day for Smart Meters in Britain

small businesses.  
It’s been a bad day for Smart Meters in Britain
nickhunn.com, 27 July 2017

This evening, the BBC’s Watchdog Live programme did a follow up to its previous investigation on fires that have potentially been caused by poorly executed installations of smart meters. Since the original investigation they’ve been contacted by more people affected and tonight showed the devastating consequences for two families, whose homes had been gutted by fire – one from a faulty gas meter installation, and the second attributed to a faulty electricity meter installation.

The faults are not ascribed to smart meters themselves, but the haste to meet Government targets to install 53 million new meters by 2020. Because of multiple delays in the deployment programme, the industry is having to treble the number of installers, which is raising concerns for the safety of installations and has resulted in calls for a review of the timescales for installation.

Apple plans to begin selling new smartwatch by end of year


Apple Inc. is planning to release a version of its smartwatch later this year that can connect directly to cellular networks, a move designed to reduce the device’s reliance on the iPhone, people familiar with the matter said.

Currently, Apple requires its smartwatch to be connected wirelessly to an iPhone to stream music, download directions in maps, and send messages while on the go. Equipped with LTE chips, at least some new Apple Watch models, planned for release by the end of the year, will be able to conduct many tasks without an iPhone in range, the people said. For example, a user would be able to download new songs and use apps and leave their smartphone at home.

As Many Schools Look to Outfit Every Student with a Laptop or Tablet, These Two Minnesota Schools Choose to Go Without

(Extracts)

Grant Olson, a local software architect for CenturyLink, has made a living off being tech savvy. He’s been in the industry for 19 years. But when it came time to enroll the eldest of his three kids in school, he decided to enroll him in the Minnesota Waldorf School in St. Paul — a tech-free preK-8 private school.

Olson was initially drawn to the experiential nature of the school model, which was grounded more in building relationships and fostering creativity than administering grades and standardized tests, he says. As far as the school’s technology guidelines went — no screen time during the week and a willingness to work toward limited to zero screen time on the weekend — he wasn’t completely sold at first. But he found a compromise that could work for his family and stuck with it: one hour of media per day.

Keeping Your Smartphone Nearby May Not Be So Smart

Keeping your smartphone nearby may not be so smart

Imagine you were asked to complete a series of math problems, ones just hard enough to require your attention and focus, but nothing you couldn’t handle. Now, imagine you were intermittently interrupted from these math problems and asked to remember a random list of letters. This might be even tougher.

It’s reasonable to assume your performance on these tasks might be impaired by distractions such as loud noise or nearby conversation. But what about the smartphone in your pocket or purse? According to a new study, the mere presence of your smartphone, even if it isn’t ringing and even if you aren’t looking at it, can hurt your performance on certain cognitive tasks.

Kangaroos are confusing self-driving cars

19 July 2017

Manufacturers of driverless cars promise that collisions will become a thing of the past.

Self-driving cars will be safer, they claim. With super sensors, laser and camera technology, they will be able to spot another car approaching, or a pedestrian in the road, and react far faster than a human driver could.

But when it comes to preventing collisions with kangaroos, engineers at Volvo have hit a stumbling block.

Crashes involving an animal cause the deaths of around 200 people a year in the United States. And about 20 times a day, a driver somewhere in Sweden crashes a car into a moose. Indeed, these types of collisions are the reason the Swedish carmaker has made large animal detection systems part of the design for its driverless cars.

Can Using a Laptop Make You Infertile?

Can using a laptop make you infertile?
Madeline Purdue, USA TODAY, 2 August 2017

SAN FRANCISCO — Could technology make you infertile? The problem may be resting on your lap.

A study published last week shows sperm counts in western men have been falling for the last 40 years. There are some theories about why it's happening — smoking, obesity and stress among the culprits — but scientists do not have a definitive answer.

The study cites another study from 2015 that shows an increase in scrotal temperature can also cause sperm to be abnormal in quantity and quality. When the scrotum heats up, the sperm that is produced can take on a different shape that is not as effective at penetrating the egg, lowering the chances of becoming pregnant.

There are multiple factors that could cause the scrotum to heat up, such as hot tubs or tight clothing, but one that has created some discussion is laptop use.

Laptop computers are designed to be easily portable and used comfortably in any situation, particularly on the lap. However, if a male uses a laptop on his lap too frequently, it is possible that his scrotum's temperature will increase.

Talking about the dangers of mobile phones is no easy task.

It’s crazy what one can do with a cell phone! Watch a video, listen to music, call hands-free… Finished, the device glued to the ear; now, we slip it in a shirt or pants pocket, and that’s it. One small problem, the body is exposed to electromagnetic waves emitted by these devices. In order to avoid any risk, the manufacturers recommend putting it at a separation distance from the body of between 15 and 25 millimeters, to avoid exceeding the 2 watts per kilogram limit value of exposure to electromagnetic fields.

But now, following a request from the National Frequencies Agency (ANFR), the French organization responsible for, inter alia, controlling the public’s exposure to electromagnetic waves, Europe, in April 2016, has suddenly lowered this separation distance to 5 millimeters. In undertaking tests between 2012 and 2015 on 95 cell phones, ANFR noticed that if glued directly against the body, their radiation soared: 9 out of 10 exceeded the limit value of exposure of 2 watts per kilo. And 1 in 4 displayed radiation exceeding double this threshold.
