January 7, 2012. In 2010, we published a paper that showed radiation from a cordless phone at 2.4 GHz affects the heart. Click herefor a copy of that publication andhere to watch the youtube video.
We heard from many people who acknowledged that they experience heart palpitations in certain environments and are unable to use mobile phones and be near cell phone antennas and Wi-Fi routers. We also learned that some students in schools with Wi-Fi experience a racing heart. Cardiologist, Dr. Stephen Sinatra, believes that those who have undiagnosed heart conditions may be particularly vulnerable to radio frequency radiation.
In the past we were concerned about the radiation from a microwave oven affecting heart monitors. Those heart monitors have been improved and are now shielded against radio frequency radiation. Our hearts are NOT shielded and our exposure to radio frequency radiation includes not only microwave ovens but mobile phones, cell phone antennas, wireless routers, smart meters, wireless computer games, blue tooth, and wireless baby monitors.
Our study was criticized and the claim was made that our results were due to electromagnetic interference (EMI).
EMI refers to disruption of an electronic circuit with an electromagnetic signal. A common example is the static you hear as you drive under high voltage transmission lines with your radio tuned to an AM station. The static on the radio is EMI.
In our experiment the radiation from the cordless phone may have affected the receiver, placed near the heart, creating spurious results. If this were the case, the signal would interfere each time but that did not happen. We were convinced our results were real (i.e. that we were recording changes in the heart rather than changes in the equipment) but the criticism of EMI was worth testing.
Was there a critical distance where the radiation from the cordless phone interfered with the equipment we were using?
So we designed an experiment to test for EMI. The results are in our new video. Click here to watch the video.
NOTE: There is an error in our previous video (2010). We refer to the cordless phone as a DECT phone. Technically DECT phones radiate between 1880 and 1930 MHz and the phone we used provides a signal at 2400 MHz. We do have DECT phones in North America but they operate at a different frequency than those in Europe. DECT 6.0 phones in U.S. and Canada operate at 1.9 GHz.

December 24, 2011, Berkeley, CA, USA & Stockholm, Sweden. An important new analysis, The Potential Impact of Mobile Phone Use on Trends in Brain and CNS Tumors, was published today in the journal Neurology & Neurophysiology. It can be downloaded without cost athttp://www.omicsonline.o...562/2155-9562-S5-003.pdf. The paper is in a Special Issue of the journal titled “Brain Tumor.” The study raises very serious concerns about the potential for a large increase in brain cancer incidence, resulting from widespread mobile phone use. The steep increase in brain cancer will begin in approximately 15 years according to the projections. The paper, by researchers Örjan Hallberg in Sweden and L. Lloyd Morgan in the U.S., first reviews biological effects from mobile phone use reported in peer-reviewed studies, such as increased permeability of the blood-brain barrier, deleterious effects on sperm, double strand breaks in DNA, stress gene activation (indicating an exposure to a toxin), and increased risk of an acoustic nerve tumor (acoustic neuroma) and brain cancer after 10 or more years of mobile phone use. It then considered two established mechanisms for the development of brain cancer—that mobile phone use decreases the efficiency of the repair of mutated DNA and that mobile phone use increases the rate of DNA mutations. In developing the model from brain cancer registry data, mathematical model parameters are selected which provide a best fit to the age adjusted registry data. The model can be considered reasonably accurate if it approximates both the age-specific brain cancer incidence (e.g., 30-34 year age cohort) and the age-adjusted brain cancer incidence from the cancer registry data. It can then be used by the researchers to predict future brain cancer incidence. Based on a 30-year time between first mobile phone use and diagnoses of brain cancer (latency time), the model predicts that there will be a 100% increased incidence of brain cancer (2-fold) if DNA repair efficiency is decreased by mobile phone use, and a 2,400% increase in brain tumors (25-fold) if mobile phone use mutates DNA. The figure below, from the paper illustrates these predictions.
Figure 3. Norwegian brain tumor age-adjusted rates per 100,000 person-years by calendar year for reported data with 3 results from mobile phone use 1) Increased DNA damage 2) no DNA repair and 3) has no effect.
The public health risk modeling process used in this analysis was developed by Örjan Hallberg and has been successfully applied in other illnesses, including Alzheimer’s disease and melanoma. Hallberg says, “Such modeling, or risk projection, is important, whether for the climate or for diseases, in that it allows public health contingency planning, should the model be reasonable accurate. For example, will there be sufficient neurosurgeons should brain tumors increase as the model predicts?” Morgan says, “What this analysis shows is that, unless mobile phone usage behavior patterns change significantly, we can reasonably expect a pandemic of brain tumors, for which we are ill-prepared, beginning approximately 15 years from now. Governments, as well as parents, physicians, schools and all citizens, would be well advised to educate all persons under their care or influence about the need to curtail the use of mobile phones and other radiation-emitting consumer devices.” Media Contacts: Europe: Örjan Hallberg in Sweden (email@example.com, + 46 (8) 605 4998).

Press release: January 25, 2012
The research group of Professor Lukas Margaritis (Faculty of Biology, University of Athens and the Biomedical Research Foundation of the Academy of Athens), within the framework of the activities seeking for the truth underlining the possible effects of daily life electromagnetic fields, has performed this study as part of the Doctorate Dissertation of Adamantia F. Fragopoulou.
Using ordinary working conditions of mobile phone and wireless DECT base and by applying state of the art proteome science approaches, they demonstrated that a large number of major brain proteins have been changed. Namely proteins that are responsible for the integrity of brain functions, in such critical regions like hippocampus, cerebellum and frontal lobe are below normal levels whereas an equally large number are found well above physiological levels. These “underexpressed” or “overexressed” proteins may play a role in the short term or long term effects reported as a consequence of mobile phone exposure, including memory deficits, headaches, sleep disorders, brain tumors. This study is the first large scale analysis of the mouse brain proteome to be published so far. The research team having recently been awarded a large “Thalis” grant is potentially aiming in elucidating the EMF effects from the molecular level up to the organism level, exploiting the most suitable model systems (mice, insects, nematodes, lizards, cell cultures, human skin).

The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of two sources of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) on the proteome of cerebellum, hippocampus, and frontal lobe in Balb/c mice following long-term whole body irradiation. Three equally divided groups of animals (6 animals/group) were used; the first group was exposed to a typical mobile phone, at a SAR level range of 0.17– 0.37 W/kg for 3 h daily for 8 months, the second group was exposed to a wireless DECT base (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications/Telephone) at a SAR level range of 0.012– 0.028 W/kg for 8 h/day also for 8 months and the third group comprised the sham-exposed animals. Comparative proteomics analysis revealed that long-term irradiation from both EMF sources altered significantly (p , 0.05) the expression of 143 proteins in total (as low as 0.003 fold downregulation up to 114 fold overexpression). Several neural function related proteins (i.e., Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP), Alpha-synuclein, Glia Maturation Factor beta (GMF), and apolipoprotein E (apoE)), heat shock proteins, and cytoskeletal proteins (i.e., Neurofilaments and tropomodulin) are included in this list as well as proteins of the brain metabolism (i.e., Aspartate aminotransferase, Glutamate dehydrogenase) to nearly all brain regions studied. Western blot analysis on selected proteins confirmed the proteomics data. The observed protein expression changes may be related to brain plasticity alterations, indicative of oxidative stress in the nervous system or involved in apoptosis and might potentially explain human health hazards reported so far, such as headaches, sleep disturbance, fatigue, memory deficits, and brain tumor long-term induction under similar exposure conditions.

There will be 3 great events on April 2012.
First on April 19, 2012, Masha Sharapova will be 25 year old. It is the golden age for a tennis player. At this age they perform miracles in tennis. It is also my hope for Masha.
Second on April 21, 2012, we are going to celebrate the birthday of the first travel in the space of Gagarin.
Third on April 21, 2012, there will be a great event against the electromagnetic polution on our planet.
This event is very important because we all live in the same planet and this polution is bad for all of us.
So we have to protest against it. It is our right.

EMR Action Day – 21 April 2012
Worldwide EMR Action Day aligns with Earth Day 2012 to protect the biological integrity of the natural world and all its inhabitants against unnatural Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR). With this endeavor, people from around the planet join together to reduce harm from EMR and create a healthier life for all.
Man-made EMR is the only hazard that reaches every square centimeter of Earth’s surface at every moment, harming people, animals, insects and plant life. Electromagnetic pollution has been imposed upon us by military and industrial interests, with devastating health, environmental and social consequences. From microwave (MW) and radio-frequency (RF) radiation to extremely low frequency (ELF) fields, sources include:
While some man-made EMR sources are falsely marketed as ‘green’, they all independently produce adverse biological and health effects. The effects markedly worsen with prolonged exposure or when combined with additional EMR sources, chemical toxicants or metals. MW radiation intensities in urban areas can be over a trillion times higher than natural background levels.
All life is electromagnetic in function. From the symbiotic balance of wildlife ecosystems to the health of our internal cells and organs – especially the brain and heart – living systems depend on undisturbed electrical signaling processes. All creatures derive a sense of wellbeing from the Earth’s own Schumann Resonances and other natural fields, which have now been overwhelmed by man-made EMR.
Scientists and experts in policy and law, examining thousands of research studies, warn of immediate and long-term hazards and call for minimized exposures. EMR Action Day provides support and information on sources, effects and solutions to communities and individuals in need.
Harmful EMR also includes ionizing radiation from nuclear power plants and nuclear weapons. We urge reduced exposures to all such sources including medical tests, treatments and wastes.
EMR Action Day proposes new choices for safer and lower energy consumption: hard-wiring and fiber-optics in homes, schools and workplaces; shielding materials; and safe White Zones and other EMR-free solutions. We engage people in minimizing EMR exposures and reconnecting with their own natural biorhythms. By our judicial, legislative, media, artistic and other creative endeavors, we act to free humankind, defend public safety and restore electromagnetic harmony to the Earth.
Our focus is on solutions that benefit us all.
A new invention using the wireless technology. I don't recommend it to anyone. Wireless technology or wifi technology is just a new technology which irradiates people.
An implantable microchip has been shown for the first time to be able to safely and efficiently deliver a drug dose to patients. The achievement could help overcome concerns about patients’ abilities to stick with a difficult regimen of an injectable drug.
The microchip is pre-loaded with drug doses and is equipped to communicate wirelessly, allowing it to be programmed once implanted and indicate how much medicine has been dispensed.
“This is the first human study where an implanted electronic device has been responsible for the preprogrammed delivery of a drug,” said Michael Cima, a professor of engineering at MIT and one of the microchip’s inventors. “I think it’s the leading edge of what implanted electronics could become.”
You know what surprised me the most. Is Maria was sitting with Anna Wintour and she had her sunglasses on but, where were Maria's ???Did she sit on them again ? (She needs to go buy a Pelican waterproof container, which will hold her sunglasses and cellphone). Though, Wal-Mart has some waterproof containers in their fishing hook section, which would work equally as well.
Imagine, Maria Sharapova fishing........... Hey where are those photos ? Maria first fish....
Wired Child For those of you obsessed with your wireless technology, I need to ask--why are my children and I considered acceptable collateral damage so you can have your wireless convenience? Have you utterly lost your sense of humanity? Maybe you don't feel any health effects (yet) from this technology, but many of us do--millions of us--and we are suffering. Do you not care? I want to know why you don't care. I want to know why your wireless gadgets are worth more to you than my children's health or my health or our lives. What in God's name is so important about your texting that we have become inconsequential? You wouldn't force a child who is allergic to peanuts to live in a home filled with peanuts, would you? Would you force a peanut-allergic child to endure such a potentially deadly assault on their immune system? But Super WiFi, smart meters, WiFi, etc. are essentially doing just that to people like us who are sensitive. Perhaps you don't acknowledge the problem because the radiation is invisible (you can at least SEE peanuts). Yet we are being bombarded by toxic radiation everywhere we go, whether we like it or not--and we have become inconsequential because you want what you want: your wireless convenience. I want to know why--even if you are seemingly unaffected by this technology--I want to know why you don't care about those of us who ARE affected. I want to know why you are not speaking out on our behalf. You are, by your silence, saying it is okay. I don't care if this technology is "popular" or if "everyone is using it"; this is not okay. It is not okay to say "well it's not going away so you'll just have to live with it." Many of us who are sick from this radiation are now too ill to speak out. Many of us struggle just to find a safe place to live, shop, or go to school. We can't even safely go to a doctor or a hospital without getting seriously ill because of WiFi exposure. There are electrosensitive people living in tents in the mountains and the deserts of our country because they can't live anywhere else due to the amount of radiation in our communities. I post info on this subject all the time. Some of you read it (thank you if you do), but I'm sure many of you don't bother because you're not affected (yet) or you haven't figured out that your health problems are being caused by it. Or maybe you just don't want to hear it because you love your wireless gadgets so much. But what about those of us who are fully aware this technology is making us sick? Do we not matter to you? Maybe it's just easier for you to think we are imagining it. Well if you think you're not affected, think again. I don't know about you, but I'm sick and tired of kids dying from leukemia, cancer, and brain tumors (are they perhaps sitting underneath a wireless access point at school? using a cell phone themselves? or just frying in Mom or Dad's car while the parents use their cell phone?) Now, appallingly, I see parents giving their toddlers SmartPhones to keep them busy and help them "get through the day." I am sick of cell towers going up outside schools and residential neighborhoods. I'm sick of Distributed Antenna System (DAS) units (the equivalent of a cell antenna) being installed on the telephone wires right outside people's bedroom windows--and they don't even know because the radiation is invisible. I'm disgusted by the number of children being drugged for "ADHD" and "behavior problems" (how can they think or behave properly when bombarded by whole-body radiation from WiFi at school???) I'm sick of getting yet another phone call that my sister, my cousin, or my friend has breast cancer (oh that's right, they have a wireless digital utility meter on their house, WiFi in their home/office, and/or they use a cell phone). I'm tired of hearing about my friends' husbands dying from kidney and bladder cancer (can you say laptop???) I want to know where all the bees have gone (they used to be EVERYWHERE when we were kids). I want to know how the hell we're going to grow food if all the pollinators are dead! I'm tired of flocks of birds dropping dead out of the sky, and millions of bats (also pollinators) dying of mysterious fungal diseases (the immune system cannot function properly in the presence of these frequencies). If you think you're not affected by all this, please think again. If you are reading this right now, then at some point you crossed paths with me in life. If you cared enough to have me as a Facebook friend in the first place, please care enough to acknowledge that this technology is essentially free license to commit genocide in slow motion against those of us who cannot tolerate these frequencies. And you or your child may be next if/when your body can't tolerate it anymore either. So please have the moral fortitude and common human decency to do something about it, because those of us who are getting sick from it can't do it alone anymore. We need your help. The problem has gotten too big and soon there will be no escaping it (see below--Super WiFi is on its way). If you are truly a human being, start acting like one. Please don't accept what is happening to your fellow human beings. Please care about me and my kids and others like us. Please care about those who are being affected and don't even realize it yet. Please do something about this. It is not okay to essentially cripple and/or kill off an entire segment of the population for the sake of wireless convenience. We, as a species, should be better than that. There. That's what's on my mind today, so now it's on my wall. If you've gotten this far, thanks for reading. And if you agree, pass it on. https://www.facebook.com...5&id=107584049286071
The International Coalition for an Electromagnetic Safe Planet (IC-ESP)
The Israeli Knesset has just backed a bill requiring all mobile phones to carry a health warning. The labels will state 'Warning - the Health Ministry cautions that heavy use and carrying the device next to the body may increase the risk of cancer, especially among children.' The bill also requires all advertisements of mobile phones to state the same warning. All advertising targeting minors would be banned under the law, and breaking the law would be a criminal offence.
Although there is still no scientific consensus about the level of risk associated with mobile phone use, there is increasing concern for the health of our children as the use by them is increasing almost exponentially and they are much more vulnerable to the radiation the phones produce.
One of the bill's sponsors, Dov Khenin of Hadash, says "People need to be more careful in their use of cellphones, he said, and especially, they must protect children."
All purchases for children have to be made by adults, as children are not old enough to enter into a legal purchase agreement. We hope that the new label will give caring adults pause for thought before submitting to the requests of their children/grandchildren. The phones do not make them safer. The Metropolitan Police say as many as 10,000 mobile phones are stolen every month. Two thirds of the victims are aged between 13 and 16. The research shows that children under 15 are the most common targets with up to half a million young people aged between 11 and 15 falling victim to phone theft. Younger children are often targeted by those whose phones have been stolen.
Parents and other adults buying phones for children need to examine their motive for doing so carefully.
If we really care, do we want to expose our children to:
The Israeli Knesset join the increasing ranks of scientists, politicians and people like you and me not to mention organisations in America, Australia, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway and Denmark, Russia, Thailand and Bangladesh that believe precuationary action must be taken NOW, rather than waiting for the bodies to fall.
Yes employees in MacDonalds have headphone because their hands are always busy.
Headphones are like glasses at the beginning they are not comfortable but with the time you get used to them.
Can you see on this bag of food ? they write on them Wifi. That means you have a Wifi connection in all Macdonald. People in this place are under microwave radiation + this kind of food makes you fat like a pig.
Yeah MacDonalds is not a place for me !!!! When you are there you look like a irradiated pig. Look this pic !!!
STOP SELLING CELL PHONES TO CHILDREN; MICROWAVE RADIATIONS ARE INVISIBLE BUT THEY ACT ON CHILDREN BODY.
CHILDREN ARE NOT INVISIBLE.
SELLERS OF CELL PHONES EXPLOIT CHILDREN. OTHERS MAKE THEM WORK IN MINES IN AFRICA FOR THE CELL PHONE INDUSTRY.
Blood In The Mobile
Hey, where's my posting about that russian tv show ???
Cellphones are also very bad for your health, because they are very close to your brain or ears. The closer is the antenna to you the higher is the radiation of the antenna.
Just compare the radiation of the antenna to a light or a fire. The closer is the source of the light or fire, the better you see it or feel it.
That is why specialists told you not always phone with the same ear.
The electric field of a Cellphone is the strongest near your ear.
Normaly you should phone only 3 minutes with your cell phone, after 3 minutes your body starts reacting to the radiation. Sometimes people feel that their ears become hot or they have a pain in their ears when they phone too much.
About the cellphone towers they are also dangerous because they radiate 24H/24H so if you live near them, your body will be expose to them 24H/24H particularly in the night when you sleep.
The only advantage of your cellphone, you can turn it off in the night or when you want. It is like a cigarette, you can stop smoking when you want in the day.
The unadvantage of a cellphone tower, you can't turn it off. It works all days&nights. During raining the radiation of antennas increases, there is a programme which increases the radiation of antennas during raining because the link becomes weak.
Cellphones or cellphones towers are not very good for your health, particularly for children who have a growing body&brain.
Masha is very clever, she found a solution to avoid one part of the radiation of the cellphone.
Headphones are like glasses at the beginning they are not so comfortable but with the time you get used to them and they become very useful&comfortable but don't be lazy to use them!!!!
First Town Free of Electromagnetic Radiation Unanimously Approved in Spain
In Olvera, a beautiful town of Cadiz, the Councillor for the Environment, James Steward, confirmed that the full City Council unanimously approved to declare the town a "Electromagnetic Pollution-Free Municipality". Importantly, with the unanimity of the United Left party, but voted for by the Spanish Socialist Party and the Popular Party, and harnessed it has motivated different political forces, is to ensure a safe and healthy environment the villagers. We can say openly and without fear of error, that there are no official records of municipalities, with the same kind of decision. Just know that in Cartagena and Murcia several villages in neighboring federations called for something similar, as have many provinces of Spain, but have just not progressed. As an extension of the news, Environment Councilman James Waiter said, "As our town is small, we have the typical problem of the tomes of masts on the roofs, on the contrary, the urban landscape of the upper population is adorned by a concrete tower with antennas installed and lack of legality, which we intend to remove it immediately. " And every day that this issue gets more heated -- and just last week the newspaper released a story in which a former flight attendant and a former technical director of a university, both of French origin, became refugees living in a cave in the Alps to protect themselves from the "unbearable pain" produced by electromagnetic waves.
Aprueban por unanimidad la primera localidad libre de radiaciones electromagnéticas
