microwave radiation. Is this cause for alarm?
Serious concern is mounting over the mushrooming use of the handy
never-leave-home-without-it mobile cellular telephone, or cell-phone.
These phones are arguably the most radiative appliance humans have yet
invented. It is well known that high levels of RF (Radio Frequency) can
produce biological damage through heating effects ? this is indeed how
your microwave oven cooks your food. Yet over 190 million Americans are
now holding these high-powered transmitters up against their heads. Is
this sensible? Or is this suicide?
Back in the early 1900s a
Russian engineer, Georges Lakhovsky, made an astonishing discovery. In
his book "The Secret of Life" he described how each of the trillions of
living cells (in plants, human bodies, bacteria, parasites etc) is
nothing but an electromagnetic resonator capable of emitting and
absorbing radiations of very high frequency.
What does this mean?
Your body is composed of ions, minerals and a high percentage of water.
A very effective antenna, it is a strong conductor of energy. Each cell
in your body is like a complex bio-computer with energy fields ? each
second undergoing thousands of biological, biochemical, and
electromagnetic changes. Disturb the normal functioning of these fields
? for example by creating an abnormal concentration of electromagnetic
waves (as from cell-phones) ? and it can be disastrous to your health.
frequency) radiation describes the continually flowing electrons that
form invisible fields of energy all around us. EMF radiation from power
lines, appliances, radars, TVs, phones, computers, microwaves, etc. are
already considered by many to be potentially hazardous to both mental
and physical health. EMF impulses produce radiation powerful enough to
agitate atoms. At high levels, this creates heat, cooking cells from
the inside out ? the principle behind microwave ovens. Robert Becker,
an orthopedic surgeon who has used radiation medically, believes that
uncontrolled changes in levels of this radiation could lead to slow
extinction of many life forms. It has already led to increasing rates
of cancer, nervous disorders, stress, and birth defects. Radiation
seems to target the immune system, nerves, brain, and glands. It also
tends to disturb insulin production, thereby exacerbating blood sugar
Anyone who lives or works
within an electromagnetic field is at risk. CNN, 20/20, 60 Minutes and
many others have questioned the Cellular Telephone Industry Association
(CTIA) about the results of phone testing. Autos, trucks, and planes
are now also recognized as powerful generators and receivers of EMF
radiation. Spark-plugs emit strong EMF pulses every time they fire,
bombarding unsuspecting passengers. No wonder people feel exhausted
after long trips.
Irreversibly dependent on
electronics, it seems we are at the stage when we cannot abolish
electromagnetic radiation. However, if we do not become aware of the
dangers, we will not be able to protect ourselves.
RF (radio frequency)
waves are part of the spectrum of EMF waves that travel at light speed
and encompass everything from microwaves and cell-phones, up to gamma
and X-rays. So what does RF do to your brain while you're on the phone?
As mentioned, at high
levels it can heat cells from the inside out, like a microwave oven ?
hence alarms over cooking your brain! The available science in the U.S.
does not allow us to conclude that the phones are absolutely safe, or
absolutely unsafe. The U.S. government effectively permits the wireless
industry to police itself.
cell-phone users must take heed of wireless phone-safety research done
outside America, for example by the governments of Britain and France.
As reported in Parade magazine, the British Government recommends
printed warnings that children under 16 should use cell-phones only
when essential, utilize shields, use protection, and keep calls short,
because "their still-forming brains or skulls could be more
vulnerable." Although no conclusive proof exists that using cell-phones
causes brain tumors or other problems, they say that the risks simply
cannot be ruled out.
Cell-phone microwaves can
affect youngsters' brain rhythms according to the "Stewart Report,"
another British study. Another report in the English medical journal
"Lancet" said children are more at risk than adults from memory loss,
learning disabilities, sleep disorders, and headaches from the use of
cell-phones. Will those who begin using cell-phones in their childhood
years be at higher risk for developing brain cancer in their 40s or
50s? So far no answers, but in the meantime there is clear reason for
The cell-phone industry's
best-known naysayer is George Carlo, who headed a five-year,
$25-million study of possible radiation hazards. "I just don't want
people to put these phones to the sides of their heads," says Carlo,
who this year published the scathing, "Cell phones: Invisible Hazards
in the Wireless Age." His data shows much cause for concern, and gained
credence when published in Medscape General Medicine, a web-based,
peer-reviewed journal. This paper reports "radio frequency radiation
from wireless phones appears to cause genetic damage in human blood"
and reveals a "statistically significant increase" in neuro-epithelial
brain tumors among cell-phone users. Carlo parted company with the
industry last year, when it enacted none of his recommendations.
Some companies have begun
producing a few lower radiation cell-phones, but seem to have no
intention of playing up these models. Cell-phone safety is a touchy,
involved subject, not surprising in an industry worth so many billions
of dollars. Yet research is thankfully underway to develop personal
depolarizers and/or rectifier devices that protect individuals from EMF
waves. Already simple shields such as those using the protective
material Shieldron, are available? Safe Cell Tab attaches to the phone
and can block 99.99 percent of the radiation entering the ear canal.
Simple precautions like these could prevent potentially harmful
electromagnetic waves penetrating and cooking the brain. Why take any
