Melatonin no 'magic pill' for getting healthy kids to sleep
Melatonin supplements contain between 25 to 50 times as much melatonin as the body makes at night, Weiss noted.
"There's definitely potential risk, mostly to delayed puberty or delayed development in children who have taken it for a long time," said Weiss, who is also president of the Canadian Sleep Society and an associate professor at the University of Toronto.

They suffer from headaches , heartburn , insomnia or tachycardia , symptoms they attribute to waves of mobile phones , Wi -Fi networks or antennas . These people say EHS (EHS) , an unrecognized disease in France have developed a more or less severe intolerance to electromagnetic fields . That they need to increase medical consultations , develop their homes , wear protection and sometimes flee civilization.
26, 27 and 28 August , they met in a secluded valley Boulc (Drôme ) to request the establishment "urgent" white areas , no radio frequency . Portraits of these patients waves .

She feels "burned" any wavelength , whether Wi- Fi , mobile phones , home appliances , but also extremely low frequency (50 Hz) generated by the flow of current in electrical cables . Cautain Anne , 57, is a great électrohypersensible . " Since 2009 , I am a real camera , I know that such a place , there is an antenna or a transformer I feel the power into my nerve endings. " , She says , scarlet cheeks, barefoot wrist and connected to a steel post sunk into the ground , to " unload " .
The journey to reach Boulc from the Hautes-Alpes , where she lives in the former stables of a forest house candlelit and heated stove , was exhausted. She has spent wrapped in blankets in a converted truck Faraday cage ( a watertight enclosure to electromagnetic fields ), led by his daughter, which it totally depends . Finally, it will be very little on the site , where some waves reach him , despite the isolation.
Anne Cautain has not always been intolerant to RF . His symptoms occurred six months after the installation of Wi -Fi terminals University City Nice, where she worked as a housekeeper . "I started to feel intense neurological pain , dizziness, memory loss and my sleep was split , described it . Then I no longer supported my apartment , located near antennas . " She left overnight . Follows a year of wandering waves escape , passed between a yurt at the bottom of a valley, a cellar restaurant, an armored car in a parking lot , a caravan and a cabin tôlée garden. " My suffering was only a long slump . I did not know where to put me , I wanted to go underground ," she said again, a sadness in his voice.
That 's when she heard about a cave in Saint -Julien -en- Beauchene (Hautes -Alpes), in which she lived three years , with two other women also " electro " . The inhabitants of the hamlet , solidarity , landscape cavity ( with floor to ask beds and sheeting against the rain) , others bring their baskets of fruit and vegetables and water , and a neighbor lends them a shower . Nevertheless , life is tough: the temperature rarely exceeds 10 ° C, low light and Anne Cautain lost 14 pounds. The three women eventually leave their refuge during the installation of 3G in the village , they say they " felt " before being informed.
" I know I'm going for a crazy and a marginal , she says , lucid. But even if it is extremely hard to live, I have no choice. I do not look at the past, or what I lost in life I survive . " Receiving a disability pension from Social Security, she said " hope to one day find a cure and independent almost normal life , in a white zone."

It is the opposite of the caricature of the electro marginal and disturbed. Oscar , 47 , a former sales trader ( trader - dealer ) in major international banks, intolerant Wi -Fi since 2010 - but sensitive to electromagnetic fields for years - continues to live and work in Paris , as a teacher in schools trade and freelance trainer for banking institutions. Places where the waves abound.
" The days wear me between burns inside the body , tingling and headaches. And I find it hard to recover overnight ," he reflected . Sometimes , it must slow down . "I had to go to New York in July to give a highly paid training. But I was out . I had to cancel at the last moment ," he laments , pointing a " very detrimental disease in life professional " . " Before I worked in New York , Chicago and London. Today, it is no longer possible. I spend a third of my time trying to treat myself and get better. It changed my life. "
Since the onset of his symptoms , Oscar moved three times , finally settling near the Bois de Vincennes, this summer. For him, no Wi -Fi (he also asked his neighbors to turn off their night ) , a wired telephone, alarm clock , battery and curtain shield . He followed the appointment with doctors and frequently runs in the woods. " In the end, I have no life as a couple , no children, and a very disturbed social life. Electrosensitivity , it's isolated. "

She wears a hat wrapped in a mesh son of copper and silver . " This alleviates headaches , I feel ants in one half of my brain and language disorders ," she says . In 2008 , Isabelle , 52, podiatrist , who prefers to remain anonymous - is received emergency by a neurologist for these symptoms . After a battery of tests , the doctor concluded that it is in perfect health.
" Then I realized that my troubles were caused by the antennas installed on top of a water tower 130 meters from home, she says. Whenever I left my home , I feel better, and when I came back , it got worse again. "
Isabelle can not move , her husband refused to leave the Isère famiale home. It then produces a canopy bed functioning as a Faraday cage , she moved into his cellar. And when she can , she fled her home , as between 2011 and 2013 , where she took refuge in the Dordogne. " My life was left upset , shows Isabella, now retired . When I can not be too exposed , I feel better . "

It was in 2007 that everything changed for Philippe Tribaudeau . Professor of technology, it works almost all the time behind a screen in the presence of twenty-four other computers in the room. The room of his apartment function is also 15 meters from the transformer 's secondary school, near Dijon. " In three months, I no longer supported waves . I felt burns on the skin , tingling all over and a huge fatigue, he says. I managed to finish the year but I could not make the next school year . " The former teacher then connects a year off work and three years of layoff without pay.
" I lived a year in a camper in the woods , sometimes surrounded by a meter of snow . My wife, who has supported me for four years, I ferried supplies every six weeks . " It is illegally occupying forest Saoû in the Drôme, between June and October 2010, before being expelled by the authorities. " We need a blank area for refuge . Electrosensitivity , it is a life of wandering, isolation, insecurity , he says . Should try to live at best, but from from home , take the road and nowhere to go , it is a strong psychological pressure. "
Said well have experienced this " leap into the void ." " I was well prepared to live without: I am athletic and I love mountain Isolation does not weigh me , pound man face weathered by the months of outdoor life I rebuilt a new one. . life. "
This new departure , Philippe Tribaudeau which now affects a disability retirement , took in the isolated valley Boulc in a semi -underground farm he has unearthed a year ago . It has installed its association , A land for EHS and it regularly hosts electro passing . " Everything is always tripped me , he says. I use my computer from time to time , fourth hour maximum , working three meters from the screen using very long cables . " The man also became multichimicosensible ( intolerant to odors , laundry perfume or pollution ) should also ventilate only when upward breeze. He concluded: "I live in a jar. "

"When I was 14 , I had an anxiety attack while watching a movie , then dizziness and fatigue wallop . This went on for months ," said Maïlys , a pretty blonde who wears a blue fleece , attached to her. His mother, therapist and herself électrohypersensible , these symptoms associated with the installation of a cell tower in their neighborhood Romans ( Drôme) .
"We reviewed the electrical system of the house, the bed away from the wall, removed everything that emits frequencies in the room and I protect myself with fabrics , caps and scarves anti- waves , says the girl. J ' I still have a cell phone, but I do very little light . "
Since Maïlys now 21 years old , managed to evacuate some of its pain by using a relaxation therapist . She was able to pursue environmental health studies and will enter into master 2 toxicology Paris . "I want to live my life with my age , cease to be back . I'll even find a roommate . But I fear a little arrival in a big city ," admits does . If his family agree to cut Wi -Fi in his presence, they remain skeptical about the source of his pain . " For my family, including my uncles and aunts , it is a taboo subject. They think it 's in my head . I scare them . "

Physics says: it should not exist
Purpose: To evaluate whether exposure to mobile phone radiation (MPR) can induce DNA damage in male germ cells.
Materials and methods: A mouse spermatocyte-derived GC-2 cell line was exposed to a commercial mobile phone handset once every 20 minutes in standby, listen, dialed or dialing modes for 24 h. DNA damage was determined using an alkaline comet assay.
Results: The levels of DNA damage were significantly increased following exposure to MPR in the listen, dialed and dialing modes. Moreover, there were significantly higher increases in the dialed and dialing modes than in the listen mode. Interestingly, these results were consistent with the radiation intensities of these modes. However, the DNA damage effects of MPR in the dialing mode were efficiently attenuated by melatonin pretreatment.
Conclusions: These results regarding mode-dependent DNA damage have important implications for the safety of inappropriate mobile phone use by males of reproductive age and also suggest a simple preventive measure, keeping our body from mobile phones as far away as possible, not only during conversations but during "dialed" and "dialing" operation modes as well. Since the "dialed" mode is actually part of the standby mode, mobile phones should be kept at a safe distance from our body even during standby operation. Furthermore, the protective role of melatonin suggests that it may be a promising pharmacological candidate for preventing mobile phone use-related reproductive impairments.
Kesari KK, Meena R, Nirala J, Kumar J, Verma HN.Effect of 3G Cell Phone Exposure with Computer Controlled 2-D Stepper Motor on Non-thermal Activation of the hsp27/p38MAPK Stress Pathway in Rat Brain. Cell Biochem Biophys. 2013 Aug 15. [Epub ahead of print]

Cell phone radiation exposure and its biological interaction is the present concern of debate. Present study aimed to investigate the effect of 3G cell phone exposure with computer controlled 2-D stepper motor on 45-day-old male Wistar rat brain.
Animals were exposed for 2 h a day for 60 days by using mobile phone with angular movement up to zero to 30°. The variation of the motor is restricted to 90° with respect to the horizontal plane, moving at a pre-determined rate of 2° per minute. Immediately after 60 days of exposure, animals were scarified and numbers of parameters (DNA double-strand break, micronuclei, caspase 3, apoptosis, DNA fragmentation, expression of stress-responsive genes) were performed.
Results show that microwave radiation emitted from 3G mobile phone significantly induced DNA strand breaks in brain. Meanwhile a significant increase in micronuclei, caspase 3 and apoptosis were also observed in exposed group (P < 0.05). Western blotting result shows that 3G mobile phone exposure causes a transient increase in phosphorylation of hsp27, hsp70, and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (p38MAPK), which leads to mitochondrial dysfunction-mediated cytochrome c release and subsequent activation of caspases, involved in the process of radiation-induced apoptotic cell death.
Study shows that oxidative stress is the main factor which activates a variety of cellular signal transduction pathways, among them the hsp27/p38MAPK is the pathway of principle stress response. Results conclude that 3G mobile phone radiation affects brain function and causes several neurological disorders.

The current FCC Maximum Permitted Exposure (MPE) limits are so high that they provide no protection for the public from the biological effects found in any of the 67 studies.
New paper on harm from Wi-Fi by Barry Trower
The town hoped an information meeting on the new water meters would put the rumors to rest. That hope ended when company representative Chris Goodrich walked out.
I recall one incident where a co-worker and I were working near a radio frequency field that was considered safe. Before starting work, I had removed my wedding band and watch, knowing that metal moving in a field can conduct electricity. After a short time, my co-worker stated that it smelled like someone was cooking a hot dog, then he started to yell and shake his left hand.
It turned out his movements near the field had induced a current in his wedding band, "cooking" his finger. It is my understanding from my work that long-term exposure to radiated energy, even at very low dosage, can have an accumulated effect on human tissue.
Anti-smart meter campaigner Sonja Rutherford said tearful customers were reporting "bullying" and "stalking" tactics.
One was allegedly told she "would have to get a generator" if she refused installation, while an elderly pensioner claimed an installer lay in wait outside her home until she went shopping.
It would mean $3.3 million to replace the meters with an older model, and the city would need to return the $2.13 million dollars from a U.S. Department of Energy grant.
