Children's Cell Phone Use May Increase Their Risk of ADHD
A new study finds that children who use cell phones who are exposed to lead are at greater risk of developing Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder than lead-exposed children who do not use cell phones much or at all.
Joel M. Moskowitz, PRLog (Press Release) - Apr. 2, 2013
Eleven percent of American children have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) including nearly one in five high school age boys according to a recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (1)
Although we may be over-diagnosing ADHD and over-medicating children for this disorder, the 53 percent increase in ADHD diagnoses during the past decade may be attributable in part to increased exposure to environmental toxins in conjunction with exposure to microwave radiation from cell phones.
A research study published last week in PLoS One found that children exposed to lead who made more voice calls on their cell phone were at significantly greater risk of developing ADHD symptoms. Moreover, a significant dose-response relationship was observed between the number and duration of voice calls made on cell phones and ADHD risk among children exposed to lead in their environment. (2)
... the authors made the following recommendation:
- preventing the use of mobile phones in children may be one measure to keep children from developing ADHD symptoms regardless of the possible roles of mobile phone use in ADHD symptoms, i.e., whether potentiating the effect of lead exposure due to RF exposure and voice calls or behavioral aggravation due to high rates of playing games on a mobile phone.

BC Utilities Commission Hearings: Smart Meters, Safe or Harmful?
It would appear that this person has committed perjury by lying to the Commission -
Bailey disagreed that the radiation from Smart Meters was harmful: "The evidence it's not that there's no research or nothing -- there's no evidence at all; that the evidence does not persuade that there is a cause and effect relationship," replied Dr. Bailey, according to transcripts of the hearings.
My way of getting the message around is a through a comic video and song I have just released.

For a healthier world,
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. A mysterious malady that has been killing honeybees en masse for several years appears to have expanded drastically in the last year, commercial beekeepers say, wiping out 40 percent or even 50 percent of the hives needed to pollinate many of the nation's fruits and vegetables.
FCC & Cell Phone Industry: A Cozy Relationship
have an overly cozy relationship, according to a two-year investigation by
the EMR Policy Institute, with the assistance of an industry insider.
This may explain why the FCC has never levied a fine against a cell phone
company for exceeding the Commission's RF exposure limits from a base
"The FCC is colluding with the cell phone carriers and the result is lax
enforcement," says Deb Carney, an attorney and a director of the Institute.
