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. . .

"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. . . .

" . . . 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. . .

In a stunning discovery that overturns decades of textbook teaching, researchers have determined that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist. The discovery could have profound implications for diseases from autism to Alzheimer's to multiple sclerosis.
This is groundbreaking information, especially for mind-body practitioners, and has special significance for the EHS, for if the brain is more sensitive to RF, then it increases adverse effects in the immune system. It changes the whole paradigm as to how illness occurs. . . .

Is there a connection between mold toxins that flourish in a water damaged indoor environment and electromagnetic radiation?
Electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) are invisible areas of energy, often referred to as radiation, characterized by wavelength or frequency. These fields are categorized as follows:

An excellent presentation, and at the 18 min point or so Prof. Trevor Marshall shows, as Prof. Olle Johansson has done before, the level at which a cell phone works just fine. The cell companies could reduce the exposure levels by millions and things would still function. An important point we need to make when "convenience" is discussed.
Published on 29 Jun 2015
At the 5th International Symposium on the "Interaction of Nervous and Immune Systems in Health and Disease" in St Petersburg, Russia, on 26 June 2015, Prof. Trevor Marshall described two simple experiments which demonstrate that many patients with chronic disease also exhibit an Electromagnetic Hyper-Sensitivity (EHS), which makes their disease symptoms worse. The experiments are easily replicated, and the Autoimmunity Research Foundation is making available equipment to speed that process. The US CDC estimates that half of all US adults suffer from a chronic disease, potentially making EHS a major Public Health priority.
Currently there is no central collection point in Canada for important information on tumours - CBC News
An Alberta researcher is helping to build a national brain tumour registry to help find missing clues to what causes brain tumours and other information that could help to improve survival rates.
"At this moment we don't know how good our care is," said Faith Davis, a specialist in chronic disease epidemiology at the University of Alberta's School of Public Health. .
"We don't know whether or not patients in one province are doing better than patients in another province. And we don't know if we have clusters of areas in Canada where the rates of tumours are higher than other areas."
"Brain cancer laser surgery treatment a first in Canada Some radiation therapy for cancer that spreads to brain not worth it, study suggests U of C brain cancer discovery could shrink tumours
"Canada relies on data from other countries because there is no central collection point for information on both malignant and non-malignant brain tumours, which means key information about what causes them and what can improve survival rates may be missed. .
"Davis is working on a pilot project that will collect information from five provinces, including Alberta, dating back to 2010.
"It would reflect 90 per cent of the brain tumours in Canada, which would be a very good first look," said Davis, who helped to develop a national registry in the U.S. . . .
How Digital Devices Keep Us Up All Night
" . . . The problem? Those electronic devices may be contributing to our sleep-deprived society. Eight-five percent of American adults tell the Better Sleep Council they have trouble sleeping at night. One in ten suffers from more serious chronic insomnia, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Since lack of sleep is linked to obesity, depression, cardiovascular disease and diabetes, the CDC declared sleep deprivation a "public health epidemic" in 2014. . .
"So what can you do to boost your chances of getting a good night's rest? . . .
