With China’s national average per capita income and civil wireless communication technology develop greatly and rapidly, cell phone has become a necessary communication tool in today’s society, from the youth to the old, and the number of cell phone user increases rapidly at tremendous speed. According to incomplete statistics, China has more than 700 million cell phone users. Whether the high frequency electromagnetic radiation produced during the process of making a phone call will do harm to our human beings health has become the focus of attention from all aspects.
Whether the cell phone radiation do harm to human beings? The marathon argument has never had a stop. Recently, the British experts, a new study has found that carcinogenicity of cell phones may be stronger than cigarettes. It has become the latest and most serious warning on hazard from cell phones to human body health so far, which will make people focus on the cell phone radiation on an unprecedented level. On the eve of the 16th national cancer prevention publicity week, the author interviewed professor LiAnMin, the famous expert of PLA neurosurgery hospital affiliated hospitals neurosurgery with the relationship between brain cancer and cell phone radiation.
Radiation of different wavelengths electromagnetic waves will do harm to human in different degrees.
Professor LiAnMin says, electromagnetic radiation of cell phone can be divided into two categories, one is ionizing radiation, known as high-energy radiation, such as physics, nuclear medicine application of x, alpha, beta, and gamma rays, cosmic rays, another is dispute ionizing radiation, known as the microwave radiation, frequency between 0.5MHZ~100GHZ. Frequency of cell phone radiation is 890MHZ~900MHZ belonging to microwave radiation of larger radiant energy.
Different electromagnetic radiation wavelengths does harm differently. Effect of biochemical is the injury mechanism of ionizing radiation of high-energy rays, namely direct role in human cells, the chemical bonds of internal distortion, fracture. Thermo-chemical and electrochemical effects is the injury mechanism of dispute ionizing radiation of microwave , compared to the effects of biochemical ionizing radiation to human body ,is relatively weak. The radiation effect is on the whole polarity chemistry molecule and strong radiation also causes error in cells biochemical processes and do damage to cells.
Cordless telephones emit as much radiation as cell phones, the Health Ministry stated yesterday in a warning to the general public.
The radiation emitted by cordless phones is non-ionizing, the same as cell phones. Still, the ministry says it's better to use regular landline telephones.
Non-ionizing radiation is a form of electromagnetic radiation that does not possess enough energy to cause ionization in matter, the Environmental Protection Ministry explains. Its wide spectrum includes ultra-violet light, visible light, infrared radiation, radio frequency and more.
"Information passes through the base unit and the handset [the mobile unit - the actual phone] in the form of radio waves," the ministry explains.
While studies into the potential hazards of cell-phone use are ongoing, on its website the Health Ministry counsels the public to err on the side of caution.
It also offers practical suggestions for careful use of cordless phones, but first and foremost advises that whenever possible - both at home and at work - use regular phones instead.
Buenos Aires - Argentine researchers have found that radiation emitted by an Internet-connected computer resting on the user’s legs may affect male fertility by reducing sperm motility and fragmenting DNA.
The research, first in the world on the subject, was carried out by experts from Nascentis, a reproductive medicine center located in Córdoba, Argentina. The results of the study will be presented at the 66 Congress of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) taking place in October in Denver, USA.
The researchers (led by Conrado Avendaño, a biochemist specializing in andrology, in collaboration with Ariela Mata, reproductive biology specialist and César Sánchez Sarmiento, director of the medical center, among others) demonstrated that the motility of spermatozoa is impaired when these cells are exposed to the radiation from laptops, according to a report published in the Córdoba newspaper “La Voz” (in Spanish).
Protect Yourself from Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) hazards by supporting the BioInitiative Report recommendations on EMR exposure limits.
The EMR Policy Institute is putting forward this petition to endorse the recommendations of The BioInitiative Working Group Report. We are seeking support from other organizations whose missions call for responsible public health policy for children, for workers and for the general public both where they work and where they reside. We are also seeking the endorsement of individuals to call for tougher EMR safety policy globally as spelled out in the report: BioInitiative Report: A Rationale for a Biologically-based Public Exposure Standard for Electromagnetic Fields (ELF and RF).
Following the Petition language is the statement of support for The BioInitiative Report that was issued on September 17, 2007, by the European Environmental Agency (EEA). It summarizes the importance of the BioInitiative Report and the EMR safety actions it recommends.
We, the undersigned, find that current government limits do not protect the public from adverse health effects from electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emanating from devices such as power lines, cell phones and wireless internet devices and their associated antenna sites, TV and FM broadcast towers and radar.
Most of the existing limits on this form of radiation are 1 to 4 thousand times too lenient to prudently protect humans from adverse health effects ranging from Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases, reproduction problems, sleep reduction, learning, memory, slowed ability of the body to repair damage, interference with immune function, cancer and electrohypersensitivity.
Car radiation levels are hitting an all time high as the amount of technology in cars increases. DVD players, dashboard computers, GPS tracking and bluetooth technology have turned the average car into an EMF hazard.
According to a recent study, modern cars emit as much as eight times more electromagnetic radiation (EMR) than an average computer monitor.
Electric powered hybrid cars, like their name says, are powered in part by an electric battery whose high levels of EMF emissions have come under scrutiny in recent months as having an adverse effect on the health of the passengers, especially kids.
Cindy Sage, co-editor of the Bioinitiative Report writes, "Why put billions into new wireless technologies that are already recognized to come with a health price-tag . . . when—yes—as a nation our number one imperative is to reduce out-of-control health care costs."
Smart meters emit radio frequency (RF)/microwave radiation throughout the day and night. Two independent professionals measured smart meters and found they emit RF signals once or more every minute, on a random basis. In Sebastopol alone, this would amount to over 6 million new signals a day, not including signals from the repeater system. These wireless signals penetrate walls and buildings, and are re-radiated throughout homes and businesses by electrical wiring, metal plumbing, gas lines, metal fences, etc.
This is electrosmog!
The Bioinitiative Report, which is recognized by the European Parliament, the European Environment Agency, the Breast Cancer Fund and others, scientifically documents evidence of health effects at RF exposure levels far below the FCC safety standards, including DNA breaks, free radical production, cell stress, premature aging, memory loss, learning impairment, headaches, fatigue, sleep disturbance, reduction in melatonin secretion and cancers. The exponential increase in the use of wireless technologies presents serious public health risks. Children, pregnant women, seniors, those with medical implants and compromised immune systems are most vulnerable.
Studies Prove Cell Pone Radiation Causes Damage to DNA
The latest studies confirm what the cellular phone manufacturers do not want you to know:
• Casual use of a cell phone can damage the DNA in sensitive areas on your brain
• Levels at which damage occurs can be as low as 0.024-0.0024 W/kg - much lower than any cell phone.
• Using an ear-piece will not keep you safe from EMF exposure. Ear pieces act as "conduits" to funnel harmful radiation to your brain
• DNA damage from EMF exposure is cumulative, increasing your risk each time you use your phone
A landmark study by Dr. Henry Lai of the University of Washington showed that even at low levels, exposure to EMF/RF caused DNA damage to brain cells of rats, resulting in loss of short and long-term memory and slower learning.
A study at Penn State University concluded that effect for the "first few minutes... then a cascade of microbial destruction occurs.
The Aulterra Neutralizer is the only product on the market with invitro studies that prove human DNA can be protected from the damaging effects of EMF/RF.
Effects of Automobile EMF Exposure
This is the first time in the history of cars that car radiation levels have hit these types of highs. Many people are feeling the effects while driving.
Some common symptoms of car EMF exposure while driving are:
* excessive drowsiness
* neck pain
* heart palpitations
* ringing in the ears
* brain fog
Recent studies at Scripps Clinic & Research Foundation in La Jolla, California found that high levels of electromagnetic radiation (EMRs) from automobiles caused drivers to get sleepy while driving. Drivers exposed to high levels of car radiation fell asleep 52 minutes faster than drivers who were not exposed to such high levels of radiation.
Do you talk on a cell phone while driving?
Studies have shown that cell phone radiation is amplified when used inside a car. This is due to the car's metal frame trapping the radiation inside the car and not allowing it to dissipate.
According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, you are four times more likely to have an accident if you use a mobile phone while driving due to the cell phone radiation creating 'brain fog'.
The number of Cell Phone Towers that dot highways has risen exponentially in the past few years. The wireless microwave radiation being emitted from the cell towers enters your car and gets trapped by the metal frame.
Exposure to wireless microwave radiation has been linked to cancer, childhood leukemia, alzheimers, ADD, autism, autoimmune illnesses, birth defects and miscarriages.
GPS Tracking and Bluetooth in the Dashboard
Although convenient, GPS Tracking and Bluetooth technology utilize the same microwave radiation as cell towers. Both increase the wireless radiation in your car.
Hybrid Car Radiation
Many hybrid cars, including some models from Volvo and a model from Honda, have been found to exceed the current EMF safety levels. Toyota, who manufactures the hybrid car Prius, has refused to divulge EMF readings for the car to owners who have expressed safety concerns regarding EMF exposure.
Hybrid cars are partly powered by a battery, which is usually in the rear of the car. In most hybrid cars, there is a cable that runs underneath the driver's seat. This cable carries high-voltage direct current from the battery pack in the rear of the car to the motor in the front.
Truck drivers who sit on top of a mess of wires carrying similar voltage have been found to have high rates of kidney cancer.
To date, there have been no studies done on the long-term effects of hybrid car radiation on passengers.
There are many dangers of cell phone radiation. Numerous studies prove cell phone use can lead to irreparable damage to your brain cells and DNA cells. The dangers of cell phone radiation are a 30% increase of brain tumors, according to the "March 2003 Journal of Oncology," and according to the National Cancer Institute, a 25% increase of cancer in humans since cell phones became popular. Not only are you and your family at a higher cancer risk, but headaches, lupus, and chronic insomnia have all been linked to the harmful affects of cell phone radiation.
Cell phones can also interfere with pacemakers and your body's blood brain barrier. This is information the cell phone companies want to keep quiet.
How do cell phones damage your cells? They radiate a constant pulse (an electromagnetic field also known as EMFs) against your ear and brain. It would be like the equivalent of walking around with a microwave oven attached to your head. These deadly affects take place slowly over time, unless you are a child. Since children's brains are still developing, the penetration of the harmful electromagnetic fields into the brain and eye are much higher. Depending on how much you use your cell phone, you might not notice anything is wrong, until it is too late.
In 1993, cell phone manufacturers gave Dr. George Carlo, (Public Health Scientist, epidemiologist, and lawyer) 15 to 25 million dollars to research and prove cell phones were safe. However, his research showed the opposite. He blew the whistle on the industry publishing the results in a book called "Invisible Hazards in the Wireless Age."
THE GOOD NEWS...There are inexpensive solutions, backed by 20 years of research, and scientifically proven to harmonize cell phones dangerous EMF waves.
