EMF Radiation Can Damage Your Eyes

Do you use your cell phones and computers a lot? Health experts are finding links between electromagnetic radiation from cell phones and eye problems. A study in Germany in 2001, for example, found a threefold increase in a form of eye cancer called uveal melanoma among cell phone users compared to non-users. Dr. George Carlo, an epidemiologist who headed the cell phone industry’s multi-million dollar research into wireless safety, predicts there will be 500,000 cases of brain tumors and eye melanoma by 2010. read more

Cell Phone Radiation: Ways to Minimize Harm

The media is now awash with reports of the potential dangers of cell phone use. It’s been linked with a wide range of health problems, such as headaches, dizziness, skin rash, allergies, high blood pressure, brain tumors, Alzheimer’s, cancer, etc. You can read some of these reports in our media section: Press Reports on EMF

You may or may not be experiencing any symptoms, but experts like Dr. George Carlo urge extreme caution. Dr. Carlo is the former head of cell phone safety research and he warns that we are on the verge of a health crisis of epidemic proportions.

EMF and Mercury Poisoning

According to one study, EMF exposure more than doubled the mercury release from dental amalgam. Dental amalgam consists of 50% mercury combined with silver, tin and copper. While the research was conducted using amalgam blocks exposed to computer screens, it is suggested that other devices, such as cell phones, where some of the radio waves go through the head, has the same effect on the dissolution of mercury from amalgam.

Cordless Phones More Dangerous than Cell Phones

With all the attention focused on the health dangers of cell phone radiation, a lot of people don’t realize that using cordless phones pose the same risks as well. Most cordless phones nowadays work on either 900 MHz or 2.4 GHz (= 2400 MHz), well within the microwave frequency range–just like the cell phone.

Now a group of researchers in Sweden are saying that “having a cordless phone in your house can be 100 times more of a health risk than using a mobile,” and is more likely to cause brain tumors than a cell phone. This is because the cordless base station acts like a mobile mast inside your home, and the radiation doesn’t drop to a safe level until you’re at least 100 meters (328 feet) away. The worse part is that the charger emits the radiation at full strength even when the phone is not in use! read more

CNN: Cancer Fear Curbs College’s Wi-Fi

TORONTO, Ontario (Reuters) — A small Canadian university has ruled out campus-wide wireless Internet access because its president fears the system’s electromagnetic forces could pose a risk to students’ health.

Lakehead University, in Thunder Bay, Ontario, has only a limited Wi-Fi connections at present, in places where there is no fiber-optic Internet connection. And that, according to president Fred Gilbert, is just fine.

“The jury is still out on the impact that electromagnetic forces have on human physiology,” Gilbert told a university meeting last month, insisting that university policy would not change while he remained president. read more

12 Cell Phone Radiation Facts You Should Know

1. In Australia the number one disease among children is brain tumor and brain cancer… It just surpassed Leukemia.

2. Sperm count in adult males who use cell phones heavily are lowered by as much as 30%.

3. In Japan you aren’t allowed to use Cell Phones on the train due to 2nd hand radiation.

4. In England it is recommended that teenagers 16 and under refrain from unnecessary cell phone use.

5. None of the cell phone companies are insured … they are all self insured. Insurance companies have exclusion clauses against paying compensation for illnesses caused by continuous long-term low level radiation. read more

Register Your Cell Phone Related Health Problems

Have you ever experienced any symptoms that you feel are related to your cell phone use? If so, you can register online with the Mobile Telephone Health Concerns Registry. The Registry was created by Dr. George Carlo, the former chief scientist of the cell phone research project funded by the industry. Operating under Dr. Carlo’s nonprofit Science and Public Policy Institute, the Registry collects information voluntarily provided by cell phone users and is the first step in consumer protection and public health intervention, and will help direct future research of potential health effects related to cell phone use. Participation in the Registry is strictly confidential. To find out more, go to Mobile Telephone Health Concerns Registry now. read more

Dr. George Carlo Radio Interview: "Your Cell Phone is Dangerous"

Dr. George Carlo is known as the epidemiologist and public health scientist who headed the multimillion dollar research funded by the cell phone industry. The project was launched in 1993 as part of a deal made with Congress to keep the industry from being regulated. After six years, Dr. Carlo’s research yielded alarming findings that linked cell phone radiation to serious health diseases, including cancer. When he submitted his results to the industry executives, he expected that they would do something about it. Instead, they distanced themselves from him and tried to find ways to discredit his research and reputation. read more

Cell Phone Radiation May Trigger Allergies

Bothered by skin rashes and sensitivity to dust mites and pollen? A two-year old study suggested you cell phone use may be to blame.

Japanese researchers believe that cell phone radiation can ‘excite’ antigens – substances which cause allergies – in the bloodstreams of people who already suffer from allergies. They found that cell phone users experience an increase in skin rashes or allergic reactions to dust mites and pollen.

Dr Hajime Kimata from Unitika Hospital, Kyoto, carried out research on 52 people with a history of eczema and dermatitis. Half were exposed to cell phone radiation for an hour, while the others were not. read more

Electrosensitivity a Growing Issue

Here’s an excellent article on electrohypersensitivty, or ES, an allergic reaction to electrical and magnetic frequencies emitted by cell phones, wireless devices, computers, and other electrical equipment and appliances. People who have this condition suffer symptoms that include headaches, nausea, fatigue, loss of memory, muscle pain, insomnia, blurred vision, skin problems and others. At least one expert suggests an association between ES and multiple sclerosis and diabetes.

An estimated 35 percent of the population suffer from a moderate form of ES, with 2 percent exhibiting the extreme cases. read more
