The Canadian initiative to stop Wireless Electrical and Electromagnetic Pollution16 December 2014
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."

Most Canadians feel positive about their lives: mental health report
Statistics from the military show that 128 members of the regular forces and 32 reservists have committed suicide in the past decade.
A Statistics Canada survey released earlier this year suggests nearly one in six full-time members of the Canadian Forces experienced symptoms of mental health or alcohol-related disorders over several months in 2013.

European associations defending the rights of EHS people regret we cannot personally participate in this hearing, because we have had knowledge of it with very little lead time, and we have not been directly notified by the organizing committee.
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??

Health effects of living near mobile phone base transceiver station (BTS) antennae: a report from Isfahan, Iran.
1Department of Medical Physics and Medical Engineering, School of Medicine, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences , Isfahan , Iran.
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.
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.
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).
Electromagnetic pulse exposure induces over-expression of beta amyloid protein in rats.
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.
