Consumer Reports issues cell phone safety recommendations

Consumer Reports (CR) published an article today entitled, "Does Cell-Phone Radiation Cause Cancer?"

In the article, CR advises cell phone users take safety precautions, government strengthen cell phone radiation regulations, and manufacturers prominently display "steps that cell-phone users can take to reduce exposure to cell-phone radiation."

CR discusses the positions of the International EMF Scientist Appeal, the Berkeley cell phone ordinance, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the FDA and the FCC on cell phone cancer risks.

After a review of the animal and human studies, CR has issued precautionary health warnings about cell phone use and makes several policy recommendations to the Federal Communications Commission and to cell phone manufacturers:

• "The Federal Communications Commission's cell-phone radiation test is based on the devices' possible effect on large adults, though research suggests that children's thinner skulls mean they may absorb more radiation.

• Consumer Reports agrees with concerns raised by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Government Accountability Office about the tests, and thinks that new tests should be developed that take into account the potential vulnerability of children.

• We think that cell-phone manufacturers should prominently display advice on steps that cell-phone users can take to reduce exposure to cell-phone radiation."

A summary of the article is available on my Electromagnetic Radiation web site along with summaries of CR's past coverage about the health risks from cell phone use at

First US Public School District Limits Wi-Fi Radiation Exposure to Students and Staff

Ashland, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/28/2015 -- Based on its own review of the matter, the Ashland Public School District is reducing wireless radiation exposures to children by instituting district wide "best practices for mobile devices". Spurred by parent Cecelia Doucette's concerns about the lack of safety data on Wi-Fi and children, the district investigated the issue and developed a policy to substantially reduce wireless exposures to students and staff. Doucette not only brought the issue to the district's attention, but then also worked with state legislatures who introduced two bills concerning electromagnetic radiation this session. The Environmental Health Trust submitted written testimony on MA Senate Bill 1222 after expert scientists presented information on wireless health risks at a briefing at the Massachusetts State House in June 2015.
Brain on Fire

Cellular Phone Task Force
The implications of non-linear biological oscillations on human electrophysiology for electrohypersensitivity (EHS) and multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS)
Electrohypersensitivity can be caused by successive assaults on human bioelectrochemical dynamics from exogenous electromagnetic fields (EMF) and RFR or a single acute exposure. Once sensitized, further exposures are widely reported to cause reactivity to lower and lower intensities of EMF/RFR, at which point thousand-fold lower levels can cause adverse health impacts to the electrosensitive person

Electromagnetic hypersensitivity - an increasing challenge to the medical profession.

It seems necessary to give an International Classification of Diseases to EHS to get it accepted as EMF-related health problems. The increasing exposure to RF-EMF in schools is of great concern and needs better attention. Longer-term health effects are unknown. Parents, teachers, and school boards have the responsibility to protect children from unnecessary exposure.

Many Smart Meter Victims


Petition - Utility companies around the country are fast moving forward with smart meter installations despite mounting evidence and national court actions related to adverse health effects, rate increases, privacy violations, hacking, and fires.
"It seemed somewhat suspicious that DTE has been trying to rush through the meter changes, and they wouldn't show up to talk to the public," she said in a text message after the forum.
Calls to ban wifi in schools based on cancer risk

To replace existing wireless networks whenever possible with networks that emit less radiation at schools, preschools, hospitals, nursing homes, and other public facilities.
The school Board measured radiation from WiFi and other devices and discovered microwaves strong enough to cause reproductive damage.

'It was a horrible time and it slowly dawned on me that I had probably caused my own cancer by keeping my phone in my bra,' she said.
Simply stated, a worldwide health crisis is emerging and is becoming a hallmark of the 21st Century.  The international biomedical research community is trying to warn us; but, as a society, we are not yet listening.  I hope that this message will help to change that.
Or will it be much more dangerous and the object of hackers?

Cyprus - 'Technology harming our children' MPs say

Lawmakers yesterday discussed what Greens leader Giorgos Perdikis called damning evidence of psychological and physical effects on children from using mobile phones, tablets, laptops and Wi-Fi.
Perdikis said that based on the evidence, children and teenagers should be banned from using such technology, and went as far as to say that it was criminal to allow children to access electronic devices.

Naperville smart meter opponent gets $117,500 settlement from city

Naperville City Council members this week settled a federal lawsuit filed last winter by a staunch opponent of the city's smart meter installation program.

The 12-page agreement calls for paying $117,500 to Naperville resident Malia "Kim" Bendis, whose Jan. 23 lawsuit accused the city and four of its police officers of violating her constitutional rights

DTE shuts off power to 92-year-old woman's home because of battle over smart meter

The utility company shut off Olga Puste's power the day after her 92nd birthday, because she installed a lock on her meter. DTE wants to install a smart meter, which Puste says is against her beliefs.

Puste is a long time naturopath and avoids things like conventional medicine and vaccines.

DTE shows just how low a utility company can go! 
Blackmailing and holding to ransom a handicapped 92 year old lady - just so they can install a known dangerous device.

So, yes. If Wi-fi was indeed dangerous to one's health, it wouldn't have been approved. Worst case scenario, if it could be proven, it would be up there with smoking cigarettes.
"A compound of X-shield fabric that is sewn into inner pockets uses copper that provides protection against mobile phone radiation. We were holding tests with special appliances in a laboratory and found that when a phone is in that pocket, radiation is 80 to 90 percent less harmful," administrator of chain stores in Astana, Dilyaram Tursinova told Khabar news agency.

California Assembly Bill 57

Watch the Testimony on Biological Health Effects Now on Public Record 
California Assembly Bill 57 would give wireless communications companies near carte blanche authority to install new cell phone antennas  — without public notice or chance for appeal — passed the CA Senate Aug. 31 and is currently awaiting Gov. Jerry Brown's signature. The Telecom industry heavily lobbied state legislators to vote for this bill which was heavily opposed by several cities.  It removes much of a city or local government's regulatory authority over such installations.

New Research Shows That WiFi Causes Heart Problems
Saili, Hanini, Smirani, et al.
Effects of acute exposure to WIFI signals (2.45 GHz) on heart variability and blood pressure in Albinos rabbit. Environmental Toxicology and Pharmacology. 40(2):600-605. September 2015. doi:10.1016/j.etap.2015.08.01)

"These results suggest that exposure to WIFI affect heart rhythm, blood pressure, and catecholamines efficacy on cardiovascular system; indicating that radiofrequency can act directly and/or indirectly on cardiovascular system."


Electrocardiogram and arterial pressure measurements were studied under acute exposures to WIFI (2.45 GHz) during one hour in adult male rabbits. Antennas of WIFI were placed at 25 cm at the right side near the heart. Acute exposure of rabbits to WIFI increased heart frequency (+22%) and arterial blood pressure (+14%). Moreover, analysis of ECG revealed that WIFI induced a combined increase of PR and QT intervals. By contrast, the same exposure failed to alter maximum amplitude and P waves. After intravenously injection of dopamine (0.50 ml/kg) and epinephrine (0.50 ml/kg) under acute exposure to RF we found that, WIFI alter catecholamines (dopamine, epinephrine) action on heart variability and blood pressure compared to control. These results suggest for the first time, as far as we know, that exposure to WIFI affect heart rhythm, blood pressure, and catecholamines efficacy on cardiovascular system; indicating that radiofrequency can act directly and/or indirectly on cardiovascular system.


It is sad and wrong that innocent animals have to suffer for this type of study.  I wish that this research could be carried out on the people who are profiting from wireless technology, or those who should be safeguarding the public and are failing their duties!

Government committee warns of health impacts of wireless technology

Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Radiation and the Health of Canadians, a report of the all-party House of Commons Standing Committee on Health, was released in June following public hearings into Health Canada's Safety Code 6 guideline on human exposure to electromagnetic energy.
The Committee heard from witnesses who raised concerns about possible links between radiofrequency radiation exposure and cancer, reproductive issues, autism and electromagnetic hypersensitivity. 

Dangers of cellphone technology

Taylor said there has been an alarming increase in cancer throughout the world including South Africa. "In 10 years, the risk factor has literally doubled."
The research of neurologist Martha Herbert from Harvard Medical School indicates that radiation from cell phones penetrates deep into children's heads and can damage cells. Her research has also indicated a likely link between autism and RF field exposure.
