Subject: Effect of body metals re EMF exposure effects + audio interviews of EMF/EMR experts
Below are excerpts from one of the excellent audio interviews also listed below. - Shivani
Dr. Klinghardt, founder of The Institute for Neurobiology in Seattle, Wa, an expert in the health consequences of electromagnetic fields and a leading educator for physicians in U.S. and Europe, states: "Some of us (and I am part of that group of physicians) believe that electromagnetic radiation and its deep biological effects in the body are affecting everybody. It is just a matter of degree and of quantity. We do know from research, from Dr. Amora in NY, that there is a synergistic effect between heavy metals deposited in the central nervous system from, for example mercury or lead toxity, and electromagnetic fields."
"Metals stored in the central nervous system act like an antennae that concentrate electromagnetic fields in the central nervous system and then the effects of that are more devastating than in people that have a clean central nervous system. That is pretty firmly established. However who becomes toxic with heavy metals also involves a genetic component. There are people that have impaired enzymes of detoxification very often caused not necessarily by increased exposure toxic metals, but by defective genes. That number of people is going up tremendously. That is true of most autistic children and most children of behavioral problems and so forth. That number is closer now to 20-25% of the population."
Dr. Klinghardt states that it is "more like 8% of the population that is aware they are hypersensitive to electromagnetic fields. The other 92% is easily affected, but in a more quiet way and may not know that the breast cancer is coming from the exposure to nightime electromagnetic fields in the home or that their hormonal problems or low testosterone is caused by the ambient electrical fields at home. The patient with ALS or MS may not be aware that the silently creeping advancement of the illness is greatly contributed to by the electromagnetic fields of the home. So you really have a distinct line between where the symptoms are obviously caused by electrosmog and where it may be more clandestine, more hidden where the symptoms are caused by electromagnetic fields in a more silent way." [BTW, we know someone who was diagnosed with ALS whose symptoms were reversed when he learned to avoid exposure to harmful electromagnetic frequencies. -Shivani]

Subject: EMF and Health: Science and Policy to address public concerns Brussels
Follow the link for the 21 presentations made at the EU Workshop on "EMF and Health: Science and Policy to address public concerns" which were held on 11-12 February 2009 in Brussels. Some are very interesting and enlightening.
Also the draft proposal for the EU parliament,
