Microwave Radiation Heart and Kidney Damage

----- Original Message -----

Since I found one article on this written in 1999 Scientists Add Kidney Damage To The List of Mobile Phone Ills: Daily Mail By: Sarah Harris (12/13/99) ,
I was able to only find one more article and two scientific papers written by George Sajin on the subject (listed below). However, there has been virtually no mention of this research and no further research along these lines. It seems as if this extremely important research got buried. I wonder why!


Sunday Mirror, Dec 12, 1999

A DISTURBING new report claims that mobile phones could cause serious long-term damage to the heart and kidneys.

Scientists found that exposing red blood cells to low-level radiation caused them leak a subsance called haemoglobin. The iron-based part of a red blood cell is vital because it carries oxygen around the body.

But if the haemoglobin leaks from the cells then it accumulates in the kidneys and heart, which could seriously damage your health.

Professor Edward Tuddenham, a haematologist at the Imperial College Medical School, in Hammersmith Hospital, West London, said: "Generally at a low level the body deals with these things, but if it was exposed over a long period it could lead to complications.

"The accumulation of haemoglobin in the body could result in heart disease or kidney stones."

He added: "I believe this study should be followed up.

"It certainly warrants further work."

And Dr Martin Howard, consultant haematologist at York District Hospital, North Yorks, added: "The findings of this study are interesting. More research in this field is definitely necessary."

The study was carried out by Dr George Sajin at the European Research Institute for Electronic Components based in Bucharest.

Samples of blood were exposed to varying degrees of microwave radiation over a period of between 10 and 60 hours.

Even at levels lower than those emitted by mobile phones, the cells leaked haemoglobin.

The new evidence is likely to fuel fears over the increasingly widespread use of mobile phones throughout the world.

In the United Kingdom alone around 16 million people regularly use mobiles.

The Government-backed National Radiological Protection Board maintains mobile phone radiation levels are well within safety limits.

But other studies have already shown links between the phones and long-term memory loss, high blood pressure and premature ageing.

The phones have also been linked to cancer, leukaemia, multiple sclerosis and Alzeimers disease.

The Government is set to announce further funds for research into possible health affects of mobiles early next year.

I would also love to get a copy of the following article by George Sajin. Curiously, though, there is no mention of this article on PubMed!

The following article certainly signals a connection between heart and kidney disease and the above hemoglobin leakage could certainly be a missing link here:
