Documents Show Navy's Electromagnetic Warfare Training Would Harm Humans and Wildlife

Pall said he sees the entire regulating system as flawed, and there is ample scientific evidence to back his perspective.

"We know the claims that you only have to worry about heating effects are false; there is no question on that," he said. "All the assurances of safety are based on that assumption. So this whole thing is of great concern."

According to Pall, there is ample evidence of biological effects from EMF radiation that are "extremely worrisome." These include cellular DNA damage that causes cancer and infertility, "and both of these have been repeatedly reported to occur with low-level exposures."

ONTARIO SMART METER FIASCO: Several Reports -
 
 
Ontario's Auditor General (AG) released a scathing report on the province's electricity sector, particularly its rollout of the smart meter program, which it says was a rash decision that has, to date, cost more than double original estimates – and counting – and failed to produce any tangible benefits to ratepayers.

World's first medical study of smart-meter health complaints

Self-reporting of symptom development from exposure to radiofrequency fields of wireless smart meters in Victoria, Australia: a case series.

The participants' symptoms were the same as those reported by people exposed to radiofrequency fields emitted by devices other than smart meters. Interestingly, the vast majority of Victorian cases did not state that they had been sufferers of electromagnetic hypersensitivity syndrome (EHS) prior to exposure to the wireless meters, which points to the possibility that smart meters may have unique characteristics that lower people's threshold for symptom development.

European EHS Hearing

------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
 
 
 
This news headline seemed to be very incorrect, but not being a scientist, I did not know why they had made such a big mistake. 
Prof. Olle Johansson was kind enough to explain why this research had come to such a wrong conclusion!
Here is his brief explanation:
 

The obvious mistake is that they have taken one tiny piece from a 50,000-piece jigsaw puzzle, and based on it told us what the final image looks like.  Flavoproteins are just one group of proteins, there are so many other proteins, polypeptides, peptides, carbohydrate molecules, lipids, biogenic amines, amino acids, etc., etc., etc., so to be able to say anything one needs to check an additional huge number of molecules, and a huge, huge, huge number of their interactions, etc., etc., etc.

So, in essence (and maybe the scientists are not to be blamed but the Telegraph journalists/editors), the correct headline and article should have been "Mobile phones unlikely to harm human flavoproteins, scientists find"...?! 

Also the subheading is odd.  There are no "key proteins", all molecules are "key"; the ones that are not, evolution has already rid us of.  So "A single group of proteins in the human body are completely unaffected by the magnetic fields of mobile phones, scientists have found" would have been appropriate.

Finally, why was only so-called weak magnetic fields (WMFs) chosen?  Why not expose the molecules to the entire spectrum of an intact mobile phone?  Were they afraid that they then might have found something??

New guidelines for treating tinnitus, or ringing in the ears

More than 50 million Americans suffer from tinnitus, or ringing in the ears. Experts say it's the most common service-related disability among U.S. military veterans. Yet many people remain unsure what can be done about it.
 
 
Barb
 
 
It is not surprising that US military vets suffer what is often called tinnitus. 
They are subjected to very high levels of electro magnetic radiation in the form of radar, military communications and there own personal wireless gadgets. 
It appears that wireless radiation is a cause of the condition and continued wireless exposure makes it worse.
Microwave hearing may be a better way to describe the condition.

No Direct Link ?
 
 
 
Comment left with newspaper:
 
The expert panel reports no direct link between radio frequency radiation and health.  Maybe they should look at the thousands of scientific studies which show that RF has very significant biological effects on people.  Several studies show great increases of cancer in those who have been exposed to wireless radiation in the past.
The bio Initiative report has examined many scientific studies and explains that certain illnesses can be caused by wireless radiation exposure.

Letter - cellphone towers carry big risks
Our constitutional, civil and human rights have been taken away in section 704 of the Federal Communications Act of 1996, when government succumbed to industry pressure and facilitated the rollout of radiation-emitting antennas nationwide before conducting an adequate independent public health risk assessment.

Health effects of living near mobile phone base transceiver station (BTS) antennae: a report from Isfahan, Iran.

Shahbazi-Gahrouei D1, Karbalae M, Moradi HA, Baradaran-Ghahfarokhi M.

1Department of Medical Physics and Medical Engineering, School of Medicine, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences , Isfahan , Iran.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: In recent years, by tremendous use of mobile phone telecommunication, a growing concern about the possible health hazards has increased greatly among public and scientists. The mobile phone exposure has been shown to have many effects upon the immune functions, stimulating hormones, mammalian brain, sperm motility and morphology, and neurological pathologies syndrome. The aim of this study was to find out the psychological and psychobiological reactions of the people who are living near mobile phone base transceiver stations (BTS) antenna, in Isfahan, Iran.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: A cross-sectional study on 250 randomly selected inhabitants (133 women and 117 men) was performed in October 2012 till November 2012. The inhabitants were requested to complete a standardized questionnaire that focused on the relevant psychological and psychobiological reactions parameters. A computer program (SPSS version16.0, Chicago, IL) was used for statistical analysis using the Chi-square test with Yates correction. All the data were tested using a criterion level of p = 0.05.

RESULTS: The results showed that most of the symptoms such as nausea, headache, dizziness, irritability, discomfort, nervousness, depression, sleep disturbance, memory loss and lowering of libido were statistically significant in the inhabitants living near the BTS antenna (<300 m distances) compared to those living far from the BTS antenna (>300 m).

CONCLUSION: It is suggested that cellular phone BTS antenna should not be sited closer than 300 m to populations to minimize exposure of neighbors.

Who is spending what on lobbying

In case you ever wonder why policy makers in the U.S. ignore the concerns of experts and medical professionals about the health effects of wireless radiation technology, follow the money.

Last year, the CTIA and the four largest wireless companies in the U.S. spent $46.8 million or $128,000 per day lobbying policy makers. Altogether, telecom and telecom-related industries spent almost $100 million or $270,000 per day.

FDA ISSUES ULTRASOUND WARNING
 
Avoid unnecessary imaging during pregnancy

The FDA has just issued a warning on ultrasound. If you follow the links, you will see this is a warning for non-ionizing radiation due to potential tissue heating. ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) is called for.  See link and notice below: http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm095508.htm

When you're allergic to a substance, your immune system mistakenly believes it is dangerous and produces immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies in an attempt to neutralize it. Chemicals such as histamine released into your bloodstream during this process can lead to a battery of symptoms any time you eat the food (although symptoms may not appear until hours later).
 
 
 
This seems to be very similar to the allergic reactions caused by exposure to EMFs.

Electromagnetic pulse exposure induces over-expression of beta amyloid protein in rats.

With the developing and widely used electromagnetic field (EMF) technology, more and more studies are focusing on the relationship between EMF and Alzheimer's disease (AD). Electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is one type of widely used EMF. This study aimed to clarify whether EMP exposure could induce cognitive and memory impairment, thus finding a possible relationship between EMP and AD.

CONCLUSIONS: The present results showed that EMP exposure can cause long-term impairment in impaired cognition and memory of rats, resulting in AD-like symptoms. This may be induced by enhancing oxidative stress and is related to autophagy dysfunction.

The Influence of Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Radiation on the Platelet Aggregation
 
International Journal of BioMedicine 4(3) (2014) 155-158
Gulzoda M. Khamidova, MD*
Tashkent Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education, Tashkent, Uzbekistan

Abstract
The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMFs) on platelet
aggregation (PA) in individuals working for a long time under a direct and continuous RF-EMF exposure. We examined 119
persons aged from 22 to 65 years. In individuals working under the direct and constant exposure to RF-EMFs, the various changes of PA with a predominance of hyperaggregation are detected. The dependence of the changes in the indicators of PA on length of work in conditions of RF-EMF exposure is determined.

Conclusion
The results of our study confirm the deleterious effect RF-EMF both on the blood cells and on blood rheology. In
individuals working under the direct and constant exposure to RF-EMFs, the various changes of PA with a predominance of
hyperaggregation are detected. The dependence of the changes in the indicators of PA on length of work in conditions of RFEMF
exposure is determined.
