How Radio Waves Make You Sicker

Autoimmunity Research Foundation

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.

National brain tumour registry being created by Alberta researcher

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. . . .

Sleepless in America

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? . . .

"People with pacemakers have been warned not to keep their smartphones in their top pocket after scientists discovered they can make the devices stop. . . .

"Researcher Dr Carsten Lennerz said: "Pacemakers can mistakenly detect electromagnetic interference (EMI) from smartphones as a cardiac signal, causing them to briefly stop working.

 "This leads to a pause in the cardiac rhythm of the pacing dependent patient and may result in syncope. "For implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) the external signal mimics a life threatening ventricular tachyarrhythmia, leading the ICD to deliver a painful shock." . . .

 "The research was presented at a joint meeting of the European Heart Rhythm Association and the European Society of Cardiology in Milan, Italy.

ELF MF - Melatonin, Alzheimers, Breast Cancer

BioInitiative 2012 Section 13 - Updated Chapter - Davanipour and Sobel


"Using the Precautionary Principal, mitigating exposure is a proper goal. Mean occupational exposures over 10 mG or intermittent exposures above 100 mG should be lowered to the extent possible. In situations where this is not feasible, the daily length of exposure should curtailed. Lowering ELF MF exposure can be done by improved placement of the source(s) of magnetic fields (e.g., electric motors in sewing machines, AC/DC converters), shielding, and redesign. It is clear that re-engineering products can greatly lessen ELF MF exposure, and possibly result in important innovations. It is noted that certain automotive models produce medium to high ELF MFs, as do steel-belted radial tires (Milham et al., 1999).


"All of the studies discussed have based exposure classifications using magnetic field (MF) measurements, not electric field (EF) measurements. We separately discuss extremely low frequency (ELF, ≤ 60 Hz) MFs and radiofrequency (RF) MFs. Furthermore, the discussion is primarily limited to investigations related to ELF MF exposure as a possible risk factor for Alzheimer's disease (AD), female breast cancer (BC), and the possible biological pathways linking ELF MF exposure to AD and BC incidence, e.g., reduction in the production of melatonin. . . .

Depression An Allergic Reaction To Inflammation

New Research Discovers that Depression is an Allergic Reaction to Inflammation

Here are three plausible causes of the global depression epidemic:

  1. We know that microwave radiation opens the blood / brain barrier, is it allowing toxins to enter the brain, which then causes the inflammation and depression? 
  2. We know that cell phones held near the head can cause microwave radiation to penetrate the brain and cause a heating effect. Is that heating causing the brain to be inflamed, resulting in depression?  
  3. We know that people are being exposed to powerful radiation from wireless devices and antennas for many hours each day.  We know that this is having many different adverse biological effects on the body.  Are these biological effects causing inflammation, which then causes depression?  
Is wireless radiation causing the inflammation / depression?

By treating the inflammatory symptoms of depression -- rather than the neurological ones -- researchers and doctors are opening up an exciting new dimension in the fight against what has become a global epidemic.

"New research is revealing that many cases of depression are caused by an allergic reaction to inflammation. Tim de Chant of NOVA writes: "Inflammation is our immune system's natural response to injuries, infections, or foreign compounds. When triggered, the body pumps various cells and proteins to the site through the blood stream, including cytokines, a class of proteins that facilitate intercellular communication. It also happens that people suffering from depression are loaded with cytokines." Inflammation is caused by obesity, high sugar diets, high quantities of trans fats, unhealthy diets in general, and other causes. . . ."

Is there a connection between cell phones and cancer? Here are 44 reasons to believe that cell phones can cause cancer.

  • Cell phones emit microwave radio-frequency radiation. Fact. 
  • This radiation has the ability to penetrate our bodies. Fact. 
  • Our governments do virtually nothing to protect us from these dangers. Fact. 

And yet there is strong evidence and multiple peer reviewed studies that indicate that cell phones cause cancer and other diseases.

Take a look for yourself at these facts. But first let's just consider what cancer is. . . .

Why Autism Happens

autism answers and prevention

The Silent Autism Carriers - autism info

" . . . Based on Coulomb's inverse-square law, the comparative force of RF energy on reproductive DNA between the sexes may be calculated. When carried in a front trouser pocket, a mobile phone is in the order of 20 centimeters in distance from female reproductive DNA, but only 5 centimeters in distance from male reproductive DNA. By Coulomb's law, as distance is increased by a factor of four, electrostatic force is decreased by a factor of 16. In our trouser pocket scenario, male reproductive DNA receives 16 times greater force of RF radiation than female reproductive DNA.

Data Shows Cell Phones Associated with Autism  

"Do cell phones cause autism? According to government data, they are associated. This cell phone autism analysis shows the association, using publically-available CDC and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) data. U.S. states with high rates of cell phone subscribers have much higher rates of autism. This shows use of cell phones by parents leads to autism in children.  

"But not the mother's use of cell phones. A cohort study based on Amsterdam Born Children found that maternal mobile phone use during pregnancy does not increase the odds of behavior problems in their children. This is another expression of Coulomb's law; the majority of new autism cases are coming from men's fragmented reproductive DNA. . . .
