Alzheimer’s and EMF Connection?

A Switzerland University study reported a month ago that people living within 50 meters (about 50 yards) of a high-voltage power line were more likely to die with Alzheimer’s disease. After 15 years of living near a 220-380 kV power line, the odds of dying with Alzheimer’s were double the expected rate, according to the report.

This is not the first study making the connection between Alzheimer’s and EMF exposure. Back in 1994, a joint U.S.–Finnish team has linked occupational EMF exposures to the disease, and the association appears to be quite strong. In a paper presented at the 4th International Conference on Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders in Minneapolis, Dr. Eugene Sobel of the University of Southern California (USC) School of Medicine in Los Angeles reported a series of significant relative risks that are, he said, higher than those reported for leukemia and other types of cancer. Seamstresses who use industrial sewing machines appeared to be particularly vulnerable. Dr. Sobel just last year concluded in a review for the Bioinitiative Report that there is “strong epidemiological evidence” that magnetic fields are a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease.

Boston Red Sox Ace Pitcher Wears the Q-Link

We were delighted to discover a picture of Red Sox pitcher Josh Beckett wearing a Q-Link pendant: http://papelblog.blogspot.com/2006/08/i-pride-myself-in-reaching-new-lows-of.html

We’ve also seen him wearing it again and again while pitching during the ALCS series! He’s worn it so much, that it has created a lot of buzz around the Q-Link. More articles are being written all the time. Here’s one from the Seattle Times:

Dr. George Carlo Explains Mechanism of Harm from RF Radiation

Dr. George Carlo presents the latest findings that reveal how the information-carrying radio waves from cell phones and other wireless technology are causing biological harm. Dr. Carlo is head of the Safe Wireless Initiative formed to educate the public about the dangers of electromagnetic radiation (EMR). He is also the former chief scientist of the wireless industry’s largest safety research project which ended in findings at odds with the industry’s agenda.

The video below was taken during his talk to the Irish Doctors Environmental Association (IDEA) in Dublin, Ireland (Feb 2007). Dr. Carlo explains the initial difficulty in finding the correlation between the variety of symptoms experienced by people and wireless radiation, but that the mechanism has now been determined.

Electrosensitivity: Is it Real?

Electrosensitivity is defined as “unhealthy sensitivity (or sensitivities) to a particular source of electricity, for example mobile phones, computers, power lines or even minor electrical equipment. Symptoms are wide-ranging and can include skin problems, headaches, fatigue, fainting, light sensitivity, heart problems and much more. Electrical HyperSensitivity is a name given to those who are severely affected.” (Electrosensitivity.org)

While governments and the medical establishment are slow to recognize this condition as real and not merely psychological, there are sufferers around the world whose lives have been devastated because they could not function in our highly technological world. Sunday Express in the UK recently published dramatic stories of such electrosensitive individuals in an article called “Using Wi-fi has Cost Me My Life.”

Cell Phone Radiation Hidden Dangers

Life Extension magazine published an excellent in-depth article on “The Hidden Dangers of Cell Phone Radiation.” The article looks at why cell phones are dangerous and features Dr. George Carlo, the medical scientist who first headed the multimillion-dollar study on cell phone safety funded by the telecommunications industry. Dr. Carlo’s research led to findings that weren’t to the industry’s liking, and for years has battled to bring the truth about cell phone dangers to the public. Along the way the industry has gone on its way to discredit him and his findings, as well as other scientists in the field.

Q-Link: Golf’s Secret Weapon?

The Q-Link pendant, because of its ability to protect the wearer from stress, has become widely popular among golf enthusiasts. Over 300 PGA, LPGA, Champions and European Tour members wear the Q-Link to reduce first tee jitters, reduce stress, control emotions, and lower golf scores. Ernie Els, Justin Rose, Birdie Kim, Lorena Ochoa, Mark Calcavecchia, and numerous others wear the Q-Link to gain an extra edge in their performance. Biomeridian testing using an FDA-registered equipment has shown that the stress level of golfers wearing the Q-Link is dramatically reduced. Numerous wins have been attributed to improved play as a result of wearing the pendant. You can watch unpaid testimonials from some of the golf professionals in our video on this page: Q-Link Golf video.

Cell Phone Tower Near You

Two studies included in the Institute of Science in Society report (05-24-07) gave clear indications that living close to a cell phone transmitter may lead to increased health risks. A German study found a threefold increase in cancer rates among population living within 400m (about 1300 feet) of a transmitter. And an Israeli study found a fourfold increase for people living within 350m (1148 feet). Women appeared to have been affected the most in both cases.

With the proliferation of the cell phone and wireless technology, it is becoming increasingly difficult to steer clear of the information-carrying radio waves. As previously posted in this blog, you can find out the location of cell phone towers and antennas in your area by visiting antennasearch.com.

BBC Panorama report on Wi-Fi dangers

Studies have been made on the health effects of radiation from mobile phones and masts. And there’s enough scientific evidence to make Sir William Stewart of the UK, who headed the government’s inquiry into the mobile phone mast safety in 2000, to recommend a precautionary approach when siting masts near schools. Sir William is now chairman of the UK Health Protection Agency. His advice was that the beam of greatest intensity from mobile phone masts should not fall on any part of the school grounds.

Dr. George Carlo Rebuts Danish Cell Phone Study

Dr. George Carlo, former chief scientist of the Wireless Technology Research (WTR) program funded by the wireless industry, dismisses the latest study conducted by a group of scientists in Denmark that shows there is no link between cell phone use and cancer. Dr. Carlo, being an industry insider himself for years, knows the principals involved in the study and where their funding comes from. Dr. Carlo makes strong allegations, but he backs them up with facts and is speaking out in the interest of public health. “Where are Woodward and Bernstein when you need them?” he laments. Read Dr. Carlo’s letter now.

Cell Phone Tower & Antenna Locator

Do you know how many cell phone towers and antennas are near your home? You’d be surprised. Antennasearch.com provides information on existing cell towers, future towers and antennas in your neighborhood. Towers are tall structures (typically over 200 ft) used for cellular, paging and other radio services. Towers can contain multiple antennas owned by various companies. Antennas are the actual signal emitters for cellular, paging and other radio services. Antennas can be placed on towers or be stand alone and placed on top of offices, condos, churches, light poles, signs, etc. Stand alone antennas are small and difficult to spot as they are easily hidden/camouflaged.
