Radiofrequency EMFs produce clear co-carcinogenic properties

On the same day that the EC's SCENIHR released their long-awaited report that concluded that we should not worry about any adverse health effects of EMF/RF fields, a new well conducted replication study shows that long-term 3G/UMTS microwave exposure can act as a co-carcinogen and statistically significantly increase cancer growth at very low exposure levels, 50-fold below currently permitted levels. Everyone using a 3G mobile phone or iPad or other tablet will be exposed at higher levels than this (0.04 W/kg). This study flags a big and important "wake up alarm call".


School Boards Left On The Hook For Wi-Fi Injuries

School districts, school boards and school medical health officers have been notified that Lloyd's of London has now excluded any liability coverage for injuries, "directly or indirectly arising out of, resulting from or contributed to by electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic radiation, electromagnetism, radio waves or noise." This would include the microwave radiation emitting from the commercial wi-fi transmitters and wireless devices in our schools.

Keeping Canadians Safe
Lots of good information here:
Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt said that there's an absolute connection between EMF and Lyme. I listened to the interview on the Electromagnetic Health website (see link below). Here are some interesting quotes from Dr. K:
 -- "Bugs (chronic infections) think they are being attacked and they step up their biotoxin production and virulence the moment we enter any electromagnetic field"
-- "Lyme disease leads to demyelination - that means the nerves lose some of their protection
the nerves become much more readily affected by electromagnetic radiation"
-- "There is a huge epidemic of chronic infections - #1 being Lyme"
-- "Every patient I ever tested who had a diagnosis of electro-sensitivity turned out to test positive for Lyme"

Japanese researchers found more than a threefold extra risk of acoustic neuromas in people using mobiles for more than 20 minutes a day for five years.

Medical Imaging Tests: Weighing the Radiation Risk

The increased exposure is a concern because of the high radiation dosage used, Smith-Bindman says: Compared to a standard chest X-ray, the radiation dose for a chest CT scan involves radiation that's 500 times higher or more.
Magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound exams don't use ionizing radiation and are considered safer. MRI uses a magnetic field and high-frequency radio waves, while ultrasound uses sound waves to create images.
Symptoms after Exposure to Smart Meter Radiation
Please find attached the final version of the paper, "Symptoms after
Exposure to Smart Meter Radiation".  Please feel free to give this paper
to anyone you wish.

The paper has been reviewed by the principals involved in making the
data available to us.  I am most grateful for their good work in
preparing their detailed analyses of the data and for their help in
preparing this short paper.

This paper contains a one-page introduction and two bar graphs of
symptoms, one for the USA and one for Australia.  Each bar graph shows
the percentage of the respondents who reported experiencing the symptoms
shown, after exposure to wireless utility meters (principally Wireless
Smart Meters) or to Wireless Smart Meters exclusively, as described in
the introduction.  Immediately after each bar graph is a single page of
additional information written by the person conducting the analysis of
the data, for those readers who want more information.

The purpose of preparing this paper in this format was to present the
findings of these surveys in a format short enough for very busy people
to read.

Structure Report: Smart meter conflict of interest and cover up of skyrocketing bills

The CPUC and PG&E used the Structure report to cover up smart meter problems, and to defend the deployment at the customers' expense.  These emails suggest that returning to the tried and true analog meters is a viable remedy to avoid future skyrocketing utility costs, and that observant meter readers are a cost-effective way to ensure public and environmental safety.

Local parents concerned about WiFi radiation

Using Maryland's Public Information Act, some of the parents obtained records detailing the number of wireless routers installed in the ceilings. For example, they indicate Bells Mill Elementary in Potomac has 30. Nearby Churchill High School has close to 100.
Click Chemistry Under Microwave or Ultrasound Irradiation

 Is this a "smoking gun" regarding the effects of microwave radiation and infrasound resulting in vibroacoustic disease?

 The argument that artificial electromagnetic radiation does not affect human beings - and Nature in general - is undermined by evidence from another discipline: chemistry. 

 The concept of "Click Chemistry" was first coined K. B. Sharpless in 1998. It was first fully described by Sharpless, Hartmuth Kolb, and M.G. Finn of The Scripps Research Institute in 2001.

 This process is currently in use by Big Pharma to create pharmaceuticals in which interaction with microwaves and ultrasound are substitutes for heat to combine molecules.

 Click Chemistry, in which which molecules "click" together following microwave exposure, raises three issues:

  1. what effects are being created outside the controlled conditions of a pharmaceutical lab;  
  2. the issue of heat renders SAR values questionable as argued by Dr. Dimitris Panagopoulos, Prof. Olle Johansson and Dr. George Carlo last year; and
  3. how, at a molecular level, does the use of ultrasound - the military's ground wave technology (GWEN) - relate to acoustic issues associated wind turbines?

 Logically, if science can harness the interaction of microwave radiation / sound waves and molecules, these frequencies should have an effect outside the laboratory on the entire planet.

 Thank you to Alex Campbell of the Dublin Institute of Technology, Kevin Street, Dublin, Ireland for noting the Click Chemistry process.

How Smartphones Hurt Sleep
Smartphones do seem to be having an impact on how well we snooze, and this effect seems to be especially severe among young people. A 2012 Time/Qualcomm poll conducted with 4,700 respondents in seven countries, including the U.S., found that younger people were more likely to say that they don't "sleep as well because I am connected to technology all the time"

This is a real disappointment after all the hard efforts to educate elected officials and Health Canada!

1,000 mammal list of studies
Submission to the World Health Organization (15 December 2014).
See the attached document 'Friesen submission'. 

The references start on page 8 and include all studies (effects, no-effects and most of the non-mammal studies in the previously sent Honeybee list) in my bibliography for 2011, 2012 and 2013 and a partial list for 2014.
If you take a quick look at Appendix A (page 6) you will see that for 2013 the WHO draft identified 38 publications - I identified over 300. Overall for 2011 to 2014 WHO found 456 and I found >1,000.

A couple of the best sites to find EMF related publications are:
