Israel Wi-Fi Breakthroughs: TV Documentary, School Ban

O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

"Wi-Fi health advocates were exultant today at news that an Israeli TV documentary titled "How We are Killing Ourselves--Wireless Radiation" won a high rating and Haifi ordered Wi-Fi removed from all schools.

"The 30-minute documentary about the "epidemic of Electro-Sensitivity" (ES) aired at 9 p.m. April 12 and "received the highest rating of the day," according to Dafna Tachover, an attorney with offices in Israel and New York.

"She provided a link to the show to Wi-Fi health advocates in other countries noting that while the video is in Hebrew there are some interviews in English. [7'42" and 11'20"].

"Tachover said the director planned to do 10 minutes on ES as part of a film about the diseases of the 21st century but after working with health advocates "understood the extent of the problem and the lie and how important it is to give an uncompromising warning to the public." It was then decided to do 30 minutes mainly on ES and Wi-Fi in schools. . . .

"Said Tachover: "Electro-Sensitivity is an epidemic and not three percent of the population. We are now in the double digits in terms of ES. The public must be told. Wi-Fi in schools is a disaster and as a person who spends two to four hours every day on the phone with people and children who got sick, with many contemplate committing suicide, I urge you all to be uncompromising. The truth, and all of it must be told. Continued good luck to us all and thanks to anyone out there who stands up to evil and stupidity."

A simple way to cut cancer costs by 30%!

Cancer and FM-transmitters in Europe (Orjan Hallberg)

Stockholm, December 24, 2015: An analysis of data from 24 European countries, published by Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, reports that cancer risks are significantly associated with the density of horizontally polarized FM radio transmitters such as those found in Sweden. This is the first study ever published about this strong association. . . 


Update for your information regarding Orjan Hallberg, the author of this study and many others: 

"One of the most respected and dedicated scientists who has studied wireless radiation for decades died recently. Prior to 2002 he was working for Ericsson wireless. When he was told to stop publishing articles about the health effects of microwave radiation, he quit and worked independently. He was still working on this important issue right up to the time of his death. Some of his colleagues have circulated some of his studies and reports. (Available on this website). "It is too early to predict future rates of brain cancer, but these preliminary findings suggest that we should prepare for about a doubled brain cancer incidence rate and possibly as high as 25 times the incidence we have today. One result of such a worldwide increase in brain cancers would be a dramatic shortage of neurosurgeons leading to increased mortality. Any statement about harmless cell phones based on only 5-10 years of use has no scientific basis due to the long latency times involved. 

The Potential Impact of Mobile Phone Use on Trends in Brain and CNS Tumours (Hallberg)

 "And just a month before he died, this article was published, warning about that FM transmitters have been linked to melanomas, and a change in the antenna could prevent this. Stockholm, December 24, 2015: An analysis of data from 24 European countries, published by Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, reports that cancer risks are significantly associated with the density of horizontally polarized FM radio transmitters such as those found in Sweden. This is the first study ever published about this strong association. . .

An Exponential Melanoma Trend Model

Orjan Hallberg - Sweden

Hallberg Independent Research, Brattforsgatan 3, 123 50 Farsta, Sweden

 "Abstract: The present study investigated whether whole population exposure to radiation introduced by radio broadcasting and cell phone systems might explain recent increases in melanoma trends in Nordic countries or not. Trends were modeled using a single exponential function of the time each age group has been living in the new environment since an environmental change took place. The results clearly show that melanoma incidences started to increase exponentially by the time lived as an adult since 1955 and that a second trend break occurred in 1997. We searched best fit between calculated and reported age-standardized rates by parameter variation, and compared calculated with reported age-specific rates without further parameter adjustments. Local variations of breast cancer, lung cancer and all cancers together significantly correlated with corresponding local melanoma rates in Sweden. Increasing cancer trends since around 1997 seem related to a population covering environmental change effective from early 90's. We conclude that this exponential trend model can be a useful tool in understanding responses to sudden environmental changes. . . .

 " . . . The main conclusion from this model study is that there is a risk that we will encounter fast and expensive increases in the incidences of several types of cancers. Further detailed studies on causative factors behind these alarming trends are needed. If the model projections are correct, we have to face that the population today has already accumulated cell damage that will develop into cancer in the next 10 years. The study indicates, however, that there is a possibility that increasing cancer rates can be reverted and that hospital costs and lives can be saved if relevant actions are taken. . . .

The Potential Impact of Mobile Phone Use on Trends in Brain and CNS Tumors

Orjan Hallberg and Lloyd Morgan - Journal of Neurology and Neurophysiology

" . . . Results: DNA brain cell damage has an average latency time of over 30 years before increased brain cancer rates would be expected. Mobile phone use may lead to a reduced DNA repair function resulting in about a 2-fold increase in brain cancer incidence, or with an increasing rate of initial DNA brain damage from mobile phone use a 25-fold increase in brain cancer incidence may result. . .

"Wired Health Now 2016" Battles "Wi-Fi Now 2016"

O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

"Wired Health" will be a cyber conference with dozens of participants not only from the U.S. but Canada, U.K., France, Germany and other countries.

"An agenda is being drawn up to compete with the agenda of "Wi-Fi Now 2016" which has 60+ speakers.

"BULLETIN: After accepting a press reservation for O'Dwyer's, Heidi Jepsen, chief administrator of Wi-Fi Now 2016, today said no O'Dwyer reporter will be allowed to cover the conference, cancelling the reservation.

"Attempts to place health advocate speakers on the Wi-Fi conference have been rebuffed by the organizers.

"Claus Hetting, CEO and chairman of Wi-Fi Now and CEO of Hetting Consulting, Arhus, Denmark, told this website that the conference "is not a forum for discussing health issues of any kind." . . .

Microwave Radiation Exposure in RG2 Glioblastoma Cells

Journal of Nanomaterials & Molecular Nanotechnology Cytotoxicity of Iron Oxide Nanoparticles with/ without Microwave Radiation Exposure in RG2 Glioblastoma Cells - Gaza University, Turkey

"Glioblastoma is the most common and aggressive brain tumor in humans. Gliomas compose 80% of all malignant brain tumors and are characterized by fast progression and invasive character. In the present study, we investigated cytotoxic effects of Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles with/without MW radiation exposure on glioblastoma cells. . . .

"The results of this study showed that RG2 cells showed cytotoxicity to Fe3O4 nanoparticles at higher concentrations. The decrease in cell viability of Fe3O4 treated cells was dose dependent. In the mean time, combined application of MW radiation and Fe3O4 treatment had synergic effect on RG2 cell toxicity and ROS production. This synergic effect was marked in higher concentrations of Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles. . . .
