three points of many:
---------------------------------------

British military scientists have discovered that cell phone
transmissions disrupt the brain sites for memory and learning, causing
forgetfulness and sudden confusion. Other studies show that
electromagnetic signals from cellular phones reduce the ability to
concentrate, calculate and coordinate complicated activities such as
driving a car. Startled by $4 billion a year in extra claims among cell
phone-wielding drivers, North American insurers did a double-take that
found simply juggling cell phones is not causing a 600% increase in
accidents.'

How dangerous are cell phones? The risk is extremely high, declares Dr.
Cherry. There are 66 epidemiological studies showing that
electromagnetic radiation across the spectrum increase brain tumors in
human populations." Cherry says that because cancer takes a decade to
develop, it will be another 10 years before mobiles manifest a big
bonanza in brain tumors. But he adds, we're already seeing acute effects
that are noticed within minutes of using a cell phone.

After two minutes conversation, a cell phone's digitized impulses
disable the safety barrier that isolates the brain from destructive
proteins and poisons in the blood. Professor Leif Salford, the
neurologist who carried out the research for this finding, informed the
Daily Mail: It seems that molecules such as proteins and toxins can pass
out of the blood, while the phone is switched on, and enter the brain.

We need to bear in mind diseases such as MS and Alzheimer's which are
linked to proteins being found in the brain.

Though intended for renovations, Chris Anderson would like all visitors
to deposit their cellular phones in the cement mixer by his front door.
This sounds excessive - until you step into Anderson s orchard, where
the pegged needle of a shrieking electromagnetic radiation (EMR) meter
placed beside a connected cell phone still shows significant exposure
100 feet away.

Much to the chagrin of this certified EMR-mitigation specialist, every
day some 300 million cell phone users are reaching out and touching
someone you love. Yourself, and anyone else within range of the
microwaves emitted by your phone.

Mesmerized by magical gadgets, we have yet to count the costs of
miniature radio transmitters that are transforming Marconi s invention
into new possibilities for portable personal pollution. As entire
nations reach for pocket communicators, the explosively emergent $40
billion a year mobile phone industry is poised to deliver a Wireless
Revolution that over the next five years is expected to double the one
billion people connected by telephone lines over the past century.

Silicon sensors are already calling to each other. Soon, countless
communicating microchips embedded in everything from bumpers to brooms
will be sending streams of encoded electrical energy through glass,
steel, concrete, bone and flesh.

Exquisitely sensitive to subtle electromagnetic harmonies, human brains
and bodies as intricate as galaxies depend on tiny electrical impulses
to conduct complex life-processes -including the ability to read, recall
and respond to these words. Acting as antennas, our anatomies just as
easily tune into spurious signals from radio and microwave
transmissions. Blake Levitt, author of Electromagnetic Fields, says that
when it comes to cell phones, a worse frequency could not have been
chosen for the human anatomy.

As cell phones conquer consumer minds and markets, researcher Carol
Anne Patton notes that the brain reaches peak absorption in the UHF
bands, right where cellular telecommunications operate. British military
scientists have discovered that cell phone transmissions disrupt the
brain sites for memory and learning, causing forgetfulness and sudden
confusion. Other studies show that electromagnetic signals from cellular
phones reduce the ability to concentrate, calculate and coordinate
complicated activities such as driving a car. Startled by $4 billion a
year in extra claims among cell phone-wielding drivers, North American
insurers did a double-take that found simply juggling cell phones is not
causing a 600% increase in accidents.'

Hands-free mobile speaker-phones cause even more crashes because they
typically emit 10 times more brainwave interference than handheld units.


For all drivers dialing out, University of Toronto investigators report
that the heightened probability of cracking up your car persists for up
to 15-minutes after completing a call. That s comparable to the risk of
crashing while driving dead drunk exclaims Dr. Chris Runball, chairman
of the B.C. Medical Association s emergency medical services committee.
Reeling from dial-a-collision costs, the government of British Columbia
may join England, Spain, Israel, Switzerland and Brazil in banning the
use of cell phones by drivers.

In New Zealand, cell phone towers are prohibited on school property
because of possible health effects, but Health Canada regulations ignore
the hidden hazards of cell-wrenching cell phones, which send pulsed
signals through the skull in a process one expert likens to jackhammers
on the brain.

One of a handful of licensed electricians who understand
electromagnetic fields well enough to eliminate them from household
wiring, McGinnis has been testing EMFs and collaborating with fellow
testers and researchers for nearly a decade. In Victoria, where he has
helped residents defeat six cell phone towers, there was dancing in the
streets after Microcell Connexions withdrew its application to erect a
microwave transmission tower against the Wishart Elementary School fence
in the spring of 1998.

The cell phone's second-hand microwave and radio-frequency (RF)
pollution pose invisible but significant risks to bystanders -
particularly children riding in cars that transmit amplified cell phone
signals through their steel structure. Reporting the conclusions of a
12-person British study team, scientist Sir William Stewart told London
s Financial Times that children may be more vulnerable because of their
developing nervous system, the greater absorption of energy in the
tissues of the head and a longer lifetime of exposure.

Roger Coghill became a long-standing advocate for health warnings to be
affixed to mobile phones after this biologist found that cell phone
transmissions damage the ability of white blood cells to ward off
infectious disease by disrupting the immune system s electromagnetic
communications.

Dr. Neil Cherry has measured accelerated aging, increased cell death
and cancers caused by radio frequency microwaves from cell phones and
their relay towers. With the brain s electro-chemical communications
repeatedly zapped by lightning-like cell phone pulses, this Ph.D.
biophysicist warns that headaches, fatigue, lethargy, nausea, dizziness,
depression, arteriosclerosis and even Alzheimer s can result from
frequent or prolonged calls.

There is also a higher incidence of cardiac problems, Cherry comments,
in terms of the timing function in hearts. You get more heart attacks
and more heart disease, it has now been shown in many studies.

The biophysicist from Lincoln University in Christ Church, New Zealand
has also found that cell phones can murderously modify moods. In brains
and bodies seriously derailed by tiny imbalances in trace minerals and
hormones, depression, suicide, anger, rage and violence can result when
calcium and serotonin levels are disrupted by cell phone transmissions.


In 1995, mobile phone sales in North America exceeded the birth rate.
Hired by the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association to condone
cell phones, public health scientist George Carlo found that tumors on
the outside of the brain are more than doubled among cell phone callers
- particularly on the right side of the head where cell phones are
usually held. Carlo told ABC s 20/20 that cell phone causes genetic
damage that leads to cancer.

Warning of the potential for a global health disaster, ABC recommended
prudent avoidance of cell phones after finding that every cell phone
they lab-tested exceeded the Federal Communication Commission s
standards for EMF absorption rates. EMF researcher Dave Ashton cautioned
20/20 viewers that because cell phones constantly search for the nearest
repeating tower, long-term damage comes from cell phones in the stand-by
mode. cell phone shields and headsets cannot adequately address these
problems, Ashton added.

Dr. Carlo later told London s Express newspaper that cell phones cause
genetic damage following a dose-response curve. That is, the more a
person uses a cell phone, the more cellular destruction and health risks
they incur. Cell phone-confused cells can go crazy, Carlo cautioned.
Experiments on captive animals show that this cumulative DNA damage is
passed on to succeeding generations.

Addicted as we are to a culture of convenience, we forget how
inconvenient it is to contract cancer. An Adelaide Hospital study
confirmed Carlo s conclusions after finding B-cell lymphomas doubled in
mice within 18 months of one-hour daily exposure to power densities
experienced by a cell phone user. -B-cell lymphomas are implicated in
85% of all cancers.

Ready Or Not

As magazine-size cellular relay antennas hidden in church steeples and
rooflines keep popping up just about everywhere, more and more
communities are declaring their airspace a No Fry Zone. But in Canada,
where cell phone towers come under federal jurisdiction, municipalities
are only advisers to a process in which no permits are required to erect
transmitter towers deemed necessary for national security.

Many more lives are involuntarily imperiled by non-emergency calls. Pat
Irwin was working in a Colwood health food store when she noticed a
truck unloading metal framework. The next morning, a new cell phone
tower was ready to add its emissions to another BC Tel tower already
operating down the street. There had been no announcement, no public
hearings - just a quiet notification to the municipality that a tower
was going up, literally overnight.

The intruder radiated for a month when Irwin felt her immunity
dropping. She wondered if other changes in her energy and menstrual
cycle were not from the moon or something that I ate.

Irwin also seemed more irritable after her central nervous switchboard
began receiving round-the-clock cell phone calls. With cellular relay
towers in Kansas and Oklahoma being shut down because they interfered
with passing aircraft, Irwin sensed how the same transmissions plucked
her own electrical circuitry, inflicting a chronic edginess that twangs
human nerves. Sleep disorders, she learned, are common among people
exposed to high levels of electromagnetic pollution.

After several other women in the same business centre reported similar
symptoms, Irwin quit her job. I saw it as something that was there to
stay and I'd be daily exposed to it over a long period of time, she told
Alive. All this stuff is what were playing with on a daily basis.

There is nothing safe about the new 1.9 gigahertz broadcasting
frequency. Much like a boxer taking repeated blows to the head, rapidly
pulsing cell phones signal permanent brain damage. A study by Dr. Peter
Franch found unequivocally that cells are permanently damaged by
cellular phone frequencies. This cellular damage, Franch noted, is
maximized at low dosage - and inherited unchanged, from generation to
generation.

Katharina Gustavss, a certified Building Biology consultant with 25
years experience, explains that CDMA s 217 Hz spikes are very close to
the frequencies of human cell membranes. Gustavss accompanied a
Microcell technician to the Colwood microwave relay tower Irwin and
others had complained about. When he waved a spectrum analyzer, Gustavss
checked the display and saw pretty scary energy spikes.

"What's that?", she asked the tech. I've never seen that before, he
told her. It turned out that this cell phone tower tester only set his
meter to an averaging mode. Switching to real time froze the readings at
scary maximum output levels.

How dangerous are cell phones? The risk is extremely high, declares Dr.
Cherry. There are 66 epidemiological studies showing that
electromagnetic radiation across the spectrum increase brain tumors in
human populations."

Cherry says that because cancer takes a decade to develop, it will be
another 10 years before mobiles manifest a big bonanza in brain tumors.
But he adds, we re already seeing acute effects that are noticed within
minutes of using a cell phone.

After two minutes conversation, a cell phone's digitized impulses
disable the safety barrier that isolates the brain from destructive
proteins and poisons in the blood. Professor Leif Salford, the
neurologist who carried out the research for this finding, informed the
Daily Mail: It seems that molecules such as proteins and toxins can pass
out of the blood, while the phone is switched on, and enter the brain.
We need to bear in mind diseases such as MS and Alzheimer's which are
linked to proteins being found in the brain.

Dancing With The Telecomonster

If you must pack a cell phone, treat it like a loaded pistol. Keep it
turned off. Don t carry it near ovaries, testicles, or the heart. For
partial protection, buy an antenna shield. Limit calls to one-minute,
six to 10 minutes a month. Never fire off a cell phone with children
anywhere in sight.

When it comes to cells, consciousness and cell phones, every call is
collect. How can convenience count more than cancer? What is gained by
being in constant contact with disembodied voices, while being out of
touch with the friends and neighbours immediately around us? Are we
comfortable having our location continually traced by monitoring
authorities?

Unless we start voting with our wallets, consumer complacency could
prove as species-limiting as corporate cynicism. Microwave frequencies
are the same as those used in radar and your microwave oven, says
Florida cell phone tower opponent Joe Chwick. You wouldn't think of
sticking your head in the oven, but there is no hesitation to putting
the cell phone to your ear

Having somehow survived three-million years of evolution without them,
many contemporary hominids claim they cannot live without them. But -can
exquisitely sensitive electromagnetic beings live with cell phones -and
the towers their signals ride in on? Like polyethylene food and water
containers, plastic cookers and coffee-makers, microwave ovens and
petroleum powered vehicles, cell phones could be one of those
brilliantly beguiling inventions we have to let go. Would hanging up on
such an intrusive and hazardous addiction be so terrible?

NOTES

For a fee, an electrical engineer has about five different types of
meters, including very effective gaussmeters, to measure these fields.
The most expensive meters have the most accurate measurements. These can
cost thousands of dollars, so it is best to hire an engineer who has
them already.

We returned our new laptop*, as the field with 18" of the screen was
horrendous. The fields from satellites/cell phones and
satellites/computers have been causing documented brain tumors for 20
years.

Laptops fields can be measured; there's a significant difference
between models.

Don't ever stick your face within 10 inches of the screen for longer
than a couple minutes, the field does start to substantially diminish
about 20 inches from the screen on some models - for others, the field
is a thick, heavy, and three feet deep of detrimental EMF, so that would
drape your head and chest in the field.

The aptness of Russia for a launch of "World Without Waves"
We and many scientists believe digital phones are far more dangerous
than analog phones because the signals are pulsed at much higher
mirowave frequencies and laboratory studies have shown that pulsed
radiation is more damaging to biological tissue than steady state
radiation (Analog). as found with the Dr. Henry Lai reports of DNA
single and double strand breaks, at lower then most cell phone power
levels, using the RF frequencies of newer digital cell phones. The Lai
Studies results were or are repeatable as done in DNA.

What Cell Phones Can Do To Youngster's Brain In 2 Minutes

U.K. Sunday Mirror
4-1-2004


Scientists have discovered that a call lasting just two minutes can
alter the natural electrical activity of a child's brain for up to an
hour afterwards...

THE CHILD SCRAMBLER

THESE are the first images that show the shocking effect that using a
mobile phone has on a child's brain.

Scientists have discovered that a call lasting just two minutes can
alter the natural electrical activity of a child's brain for up to an
hour afterwards.

And they also found for the first time how radio waves from mobile
phones penetrate deep into the brain and not just around the ear.

The study by Spanish scientists has prompted leading medical experts to
question whether it is safe for children to use mobile phones at all.

Doctors fear that disturbed brain activity in children could lead to
psychiatric and behavioural problems or impair learning ability.

It was the first time that human guinea pigs were used to measure the
effects of mobile phone radiation on children. The tests were carried
out on an 11-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl called Jennifer.

Using a CATEEN scanner, linked to a machine measuring brain wave
activity, researchers were able to create the images above.

The yellow coloured part of the scan on the right shows how radiation
spreads through the centre of the brain and out to the ear on the other
side of the skull. The scans found that disturbed brain wave activity
lasted for up to an hour after the phone call ended.

Dr Gerald Hyland -- a Government adviser on mobiles -- says he finds
the results "extremely disturbing".

"It makes one wonder whether children, whose brains are still
developing, should be using mobile phones," he adds.

"The results show that children's brains are affected for long periods
even after very short-term use.

"Their brain wave patterns are abnormal and stay like that for a long
period.

"This could affect their mood and ability to learn in the classroom if
they have been using a phone during break time, for instance.

"We don't know all the answers yet, but the alteration in brain waves
could lead to things like a lack of concentration, memory loss,
inability to learn and aggressive behaviour."

Previously it had been thought that interference with brain waves and
brain chemistry stopped when a call ended.

The results of the study by the Spanish Neuro Diagnostic Research
Institute in Marbella coincide with a new survey that shows 87 per cent
of 11- to 16-year-olds own mobile phones and 40 per cent of them spend
15 minutes or more talking each day on them. And disturbingly, 70 per
cent said they would not change the use of their phone even if advised
to by the Government.

Dr Hyland plans to publish the latest findings in medical journal The
Lancet next year.

He said: "This information shows there really isn't a safe amount of
mobile phone use. We don't know what lasting damage is being done by
this exposure.

"If I were a parent I would now be extremely wary about allowing my
children to use a mobile even for a very short period. My advice would
be to avoid mobiles."

Dr Michael Klieeisen, who conducted the study, said: "We were able to
see in minute detail what was going on in the brain.

"We never expected to see this continuing activity in the brain. "We
are worried that delicate balances that exist -- such as the immunity to
infection and disease -- could be altered by interference with chemical
balances in the brain."

A Department of Health spokesman said: "In children mobile phone use
should be restricted to very short periods of time."

Hold that Call

Date Published: 26/10/2001
Author: David Edwards

The mobile phone invasion is an unprecedented experiment, pitting
market forces against the health of the population, particularly the young. Governments, cashing in on the licencing bonanza, wave through plans for a forest of phone masts. Emissions guidelines are drawn up to minimise costs. Here, The Ecologist looks at the issues, beginning with a damning report which, says David Edwards, points to evidence of a cover-up. It may be good to talk, but why isn't anyone listening?


Imagine you're the government of
the UK. You've recently taken 22.5 billion in licences for the new 3G network from the biggest mobile
phone companies in the world and
they want value for money. You've
got a burgeoning market amongst technologically aware, image conscious teenagers that skyrocketed 250 per cent over the previous year (the 25 per cent of secondary school children who owned or shared a mobile at the end of 1999, became 64 per cent by the end of 2000). But then there's also an ever-growing number of scientific studies associating serious health risks with mobile phone use, especially amongst children and teenagers, whose thinner skulls make them all the more receptive to the non-thermal effects of mobile phone radiation. What do you do?

Well, according to Dr Gerard Hyland in a report submitted to the Industry, Trade, Research and Energy Committee of the European Parliament on 11 July 2001, you bury your head and take
the money.

Pointing to an industry-inspired
cover-up, Hyland describes how the voice of those with a view contrary to the officially perceived wisdom 'is at worst silenced, or, at best, studiously ignored.' The situation is worsened by reports of mobile phone industry attempts 'to "persuade" those who discover findings that prove potentially damaging to market development to actually alter their results to make them more "market friendly"'.

Dr Hyland, of the Department of Physics at Warwick University in the
UK and the International Institute of Biophysics in Germany, further argues that existing safety guidelines relating to mobile phone masts are completely inadequate, since they focus only on the thermal effects of exposure to electro-magnetic fields.

In the report he warns that a major contemporary threat to the health of society is man-made 'electrosmog'. The nature of the pollution is such that, for people living in the vicinity of mobile phone masts, there is literally 'nowhere to hide'. In addition, given the short time for which humans have been exposed to it, we have 'no evolutionary immunity against any adverse effects'.

Hyland reports that existing safety guidelines which are intended to protect the public- such as those issued by the International Commission for Non-ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) - 'afford no protection' against non-thermal influences of various kinds.

'Quite justifiably,' Hyland writes, the public remains sceptical of attempts by governments and industry to reassure them that all is well, particularly given 'the unethical way in which they often operate symbiotically so as to promote their own vested interests, usually under the brokerage of the very statutory regulatory bodies whose function it supposedly is to ensure that the security of the public is not compromised by electromagnetic exposure.'

Also doubtless driven by market imperatives rather than genuine concern for public health are efforts to establish a global 'harmonisation' of radiation exposure standards, by attempting to persuade countries that currently operate more stringent limits - such as Russia and China - to relax them in favour of the higher levels tolerated in the West. It can be no coincidence, Hyland argues, that in Russia, where the frequency-specific sensitivity of living organisms to ultra-low intensity microwave radiation was first discovered over 30 years ago, that
the exposure guidelines are approximately 100 times more stringent that those of ICNIRP!

Criticising the performance of the media, Hyland argues that there is
'a regrettable tendency to attribute market-friendly results a greater significance, publicity and profile than ones indicative of the possibility of adverse health impacts.' An example of this is provided by the publication of the results of a recent study in the USA, which found an increased risk amongst users of mobile phones of a rare kind
of tumour (epithelial neuroma) in the periphery of the brain - 'precisely where there is maximum penetration of radiation from the mobile phone'.

This aspect of the report, Hyland argues, 'completely escaped the attention of the media, who focused instead exclusively on the finding that there was no overall increase in the incidence of brain tumours amongst mobile phone users.'

Hyland argues that research necessary to establish mobile phone safety has not merely been bypassed or compromised, 'but rather - and more reprehensibly - that already available indications that the technology is potentially less than safe have been (and continue to be) studiously ignored,' not only by the mobile phone industry, but by national and international regulatory bodies.

Hyland gives as an example the conduct of the UK National Radiological Protection Board, which was 'unable' to provide the Independent Expert Group on Mobile Phones (IEGMP) - for whom they were acting as the secretariat - with certain highly relevant published papers, on the grounds that they could not 'find' them, 'despite having been provided --with the full references by at least two individuals who gave evidence to the IEGMP, and curiously having had no difficulty in providing less significant papers from the same issue of the journal.

According to Hyland: 'If the same level of uncertainty and debate as currently surrounds the safety of human exposure to GSM radiation obtained in the case of a new drug or foodstuff they would most certainly never be licenced.'

Among the evidence of adverse health affects studied by Hyland, is the following:

There is consistent empirical, anecdotal evidence from many countries that the health of some people is adversely affected in various ways when they are exposed to the type of radiation emitted by mobile phone masts, despite its intensity being well below existing safety limits. The anecdotal nature of
many of the reported health problems - such as headache, sleep disruption, impairment of short-term memory, nosebleeds and, more seriously, an increase in the frequency of seizures in some children already suffering from epilepsy - does not constitute grounds for dismissing them out of hand. Given the lack of research on this relatively new technology, such reports are an indispensable source
of information, Hyland argues.

There is documented evidence that long-term (involuntary) exposure to microwave radiation of intensities between that realised near an active phone and that found in the vicinity of a base-station does causes serious illness, such as leukaemia and lymphoma, in certain exposed people. This is the conclusion reached by a relatively recent re-analysis of the Lilienfeld report on the Moscow US Embassy irradiation during the 'cold' war, based on information that only became fully available following the Freedom of Information Act. This reveals that the original verdict of 'no serious health effects' was, in fact, a sanitised version of Lilienfeld's findings, in which his statements of concern had been deliberately removed by the State Department.

Furthermore, children, Hyland explains, are at greatest risk for several good reasons, including:

Absorption of microwaves of the frequency used in mobile telephony is greatest in an object about the size of a child's head - the so-called 'head resonance' - whilst, in consequence of the thinner skull of a child, the penetration of the radiation into the brain is greater than in an adult.

The still developing nervous system and associated brain-wave activity in a child (and particularly one that is epileptic) are more vulnerable to aggression by the pulses of microwaves used in mobile phone radiation than is the case with a mature adult.

A child's immune system, whose efficiency is, in any case, degraded by radiation of the kind used in mobile telephony, is generally less robust than is that of an adult, so that the child less able to 'cope' with any adverse health effect provoked by (chronic) exposure to such radiation.

Asking the question again: If you were the UK government, what would you do?

Oh yay...gotta love that animal research... 02.Oct.2004 02:11

disgusted

"An Adelaide Hospital study confirmed Carlo's conclusions after finding B-cell lymphomas doubled in mice within 18 months of one-hour daily exposure to power densities experienced by a cell phone user..." Of course nonhumans really love their cell phones. First, you can't extrapolate. Second, I'm disgusted that studies like this are done and referred to. Don't pass over the mention of animal torture in this article--it's no more o.k. than locking up children and running painful experiments on them. It's sick.

Rant and rage at them, instead of me.

We are in a collective microwave radiation human/animal experiment regardless--and one with lots of information about its deadly quality, particularly to children. Everytime I see a happy pre-teen talking on a cell phone walking down the street (for who knows how long...) I cringe.
