Cell and Cordless Phones


Cell and Cordless Phones

Cellular and cordless/portable phones, though suddenly and seemingly indispensable in our society, are a direct product of the wireless industry's successful attempt to sell us speed, convenience and entertainment all in one seductive package. In the long term, biologically safe alternatives to wireless cell and portable DECT phones will become necessary, as already they are causing negative effects that impact all living systems.

The Truth About Mobile Phone and Wireless Radiation - Dr. Devra Davis

What we know, what we need to find out, and what you can do now


What are the health of mobile phones and wireless radiation?  While in Australia has led the world in safety standards, including compulsory seat-belt legislation, plain packaging on cigarettes, and product and food disclosure legislation, it falls behind in addressing the significant issues associated with mobile phone use.

Published on 2 Dec 2015

This is well worth watching - lots of well-presented up-to-date information. On 30th November 2015, the Dean's Lecture at the University of Melbourne was given by Professor Devra Davis based around the question "What are the health effects of mobile phones and wireless radiation?". Epidemiologist and electromagnetic radiation health-effects expert, Dr Davis, outlines the evolution of the mobile phone and smartphone and provides a background to the current 19 year old radiation safety standards (SAR), policy developments and international legislation.

New global studies on the health consequences of mobile/wireless radiation are presented, including those regarding children's exposure and risks.

"Ongoing Research from the Indian Medical Research Council on Cell Phones and Health"  

A Review of epidemiology and toxicology:
Dr. R.S Sharma, Dr. Devra Davis and special guest Dr. George Carlo
George Washington University
The Milken Institute School of Public Health



Dr. R.S. Sharma, Indian government Senior Deputy Director General & Scientist of the Indian Council of Medical Research, reviews the research showing genetic damage and health effects from wireless exposures which are informing India's new telecommunications policy. He describes how the government is supporting efforts to reduce exposures.

Dr. Devra Davis, PhD MPH, former Clinton Presidential appointee, founding Director of the Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology of the National Academy of Sciences described current research on wireless exposures to children and what people can do to protect themselves. Learn more about this issue at the Environmental Health Trust website http://ehtrust.org

Dr. George Carlo attended the lecture and came up on the podium to answer questions in the Q and A session (on the video at 1 hour 18 minutes ). Dr. Carlo is a lawyer and epidemiologist who chaired the 28 million dollar Wireless Technology Research Program that revealed cell phones could impact DNA repair and cause serious biological effects. He discusses the program and describes next steps for communities concerned about wifi in schools and cell towers on schools.

Cellphone inventor Martin Cooper: Smartphones aren't optimal

The Current's "Ripple Effect": CBC September 8, 2015

When Martin Cooper made the first ever call on a mobile phone, he had no idea he was spearheading a cellular revolution. The ripple effects of his invention exceeded his expectations, surprising everyone with the sweeping changes its brought to our lives.

The father of the cellphone, Martin Cooper says cellphones are still very primitive because we are slaves to them, rather than them being slaves to us.

Cell phone headaches, cell tower blues

View from Trent - Magda Havas

"Imagine a world identical to our own with one exception everyone is deaf. There is no radio and television remains at the level of the silent movie. Telephone communication is visual but beyond that the world is very much like our own.

"What would such a world be like?

 "It would probably be very noisy, since there would be no need for noise control and no regulations to limit noise. Car engines would still roar, perhaps louder than they do now, tires would squeal, birds would sing, and thunder would rumble across the sky but we would not be able to hear any of this.

"Now, imagine that some people in this world can hear. They don't realize they are any different except in a few subtle ways. They can predict the coming of storms. They claim to "hear" thunder at a distance. They have difficulty sleeping. In the middle of the night they hear roaring engines, squealing tires, horns blaring and other things that are silent to the rest of us. Because of their poor sleep, they are tired during the day. They become anxious and worried. The noise frightens them but only they can hear it so they begin to question their sanity. . . .

"Electromagnetic hypersensitivity has not yet been accepted by our medical professionals. Just like chronic fatigue syndrome, chemical hypersensitivity, and seasonal affective disorder (SAD) it will take some time and many complaining patients before that changes. In the meantime, those suffering need to reduce their exposure to radio frequency radiation not a simple thing to do in our highly technical society . . .

 "Our government can play a vital role. . .
