Dr Dominique Belpomme, President of the Association for Research on Treatment Against Cancer (ARTC) and Founder of the European Cancer and Environment Research Institute (ECERI)
"In this Radio-Canada interview (in French) Dr. Belpomme has stated "Electrosensitivy is a Pre-Alzeheimer's state".
mmmmmmWe wonder, then, if this is the case, whether society is ready for the possible explosion in Alzheimer's from the progression of Electrosensitivity Syndrome (EHS), now impacts 8-10% of people in Europe and that is projected to increase significantly in the near future.

About the Author
The main fields of activity of Dr. rer. nat. Ulrich Warnke, and internationally renowned bio-scientist of the University of the Saarlan, are in bio-medicine, environmental medicine and bio-physics. His research has, for many decades, focused especially on the effect of electromagnetic fields.
Addressed to Medical Professionals. Useful to all. Updated July 19, 2014
The following package is for those who wish to approach their doctors with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiation. It contains links organized into specific health effect categories. These links can be printed out according to personal areas of need or concern, and used to start a dialogue with doctors who may not as yet have associated certain health conditions with EMF or RF exposure.
The introductory letter on pages 1 and 2 contains a link to the entire list, and may be useful to your doctor as a reference tool.
"Dear Medical Professional:
"Your patient has asked us for support in providing you with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation, recently reclassified by the WHO/IARC as a Class 2B, possible human carcinogen.
"This WHO risk category also includes lead, DDT, chloroform, and dioxane, and is relevant to all wireless devices emitting radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, including cordless phones, cell phones, IPads, Wi-Fi routers, wireless games, baby monitors, and smart meters . . .
"Many doctors have already given medical advice to their patients by way of a medical letter or note on a prescription form stating that the patient should avoid, for medical reasons, living in a residence or residential complex at which a wireless meter is operating in order to maintain their health or avoid aggravating a medical condition. This medical advice stating the health condition and advising the patient that they should avoid ongoing exposure to wireless radiofrequency and smart meter emissions will allow your patient to participate in the Human Rights Action currently underway. We are hopeful that the individual's right to protect their health as advised by their medical doctor will be upheld by the Human Rights Tribunal, and this forced exposure within their own home to undesirable microwave radiofrequency emissions will be replaced with reasonable and respectful accommodation by BC Hydro . . . "

Dr. Andrew Goldsworthy: Is a 300 percent increase in Crohn's disease the result of our escalating exposure to wireless technologies? (June 26, 2014)
Stop Smart Meters! (UK) - London, UK - 26 June 2014
Guest Post: by Dr Andrew Goldsworthy
"You may have seen recent reports of a 300% increase in Crohn's disease, such as this article in the Independent.
"Possible explanations for the rising trend include the use of antibiotics and the availability of junk food; but corresponding evidence for these contentions are thin and do not correlate well to the time-scale of ten years. What fits better, in fact, is our increased exposure to RF/microwaves emissions, such as those from mobile phones and WiFi, which have increased dramatically over the last ten years. The likely mechanisms for harm are electromagnetically-induced inflammation, as experts such as Professor Olle Johnasson of Sweden's Karolinska Institute have pointed out on many occasions. . . .
June 6, 2014-Interview with Dr. Dominique Belpomme by Radio Canada on Electromagnetic Fields and Electrosensitivity
Electromagnetic Fields Likely to Cause Alzheimer's in Electrosensitive Persons
Dr. Belpomme, President of ARTAC (Association for Research on Treatment Against Cancer) is asked by the interviewer about his creation nearly three years ago of the European Cancer and Environment Research Institute (ECERI). The Institute collaborates with 15-20 European teams researching the environmental causes of not only cancer but also other diseases and disorders, including Alzheimer's and autism. . . .
Martin Pall: Why the Current International Safety Standards Do Not Predict Biological Hazard
An important paper by Dr. Martin L. Pall, summarizing studies, recommending reduction of microwave exposure levels by 100-1000 times. Most is written in easy-to-read English. Make sure you read about the real THREATS. Please send this report to your MLA, your MP, BC Health Minister email@example.com
"[Pulsing digital] "Smart meters" should be abolished because they use short high-intensity pulses of microwave radiation. . . . We know from the nanosecond pulse studies [that these pulses] can be very damaging and act via VGCC activation, with activation continuing long after the pulse has ceased. It has been known for over 30 years that short microwave pulses can cause massive cellular damage. Until we have some biological measures of "smart meter" effects, it is foolhardy in my view to continue using them."
"Microwave and other low frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs) have been shown to act by activating voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) with most biological effects being due to elevated intracellular calcium, consequent nitric oxide (NO) elevation and either peroxynitrite or NO signaling. This, the role of excessive intracellular calcium in microwave effects and some 20,000 papers on microwave biological effects show that the current international safety standards do not predict biological hazard. Such standards are based on the false assumption that the predominant effects of microwave and other low frequency EMF exposures are due to heating. A whole series of biological changes reportedly produced by microwave exposures can now be explained in terms of this new paradigm of EMF action via VGCC activation, including: oxidative stress; single and double stranded breaks in cellular DNA; therapeutic effects; blood-brain barrier breakdown; greatly depressed melatonin levels and sleep disruption; cancer; male and female infertility; immune dysfunction; neurological dysfunction; cardiac dysfunction including tachycardia, arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death. A two-phase program for greatly improving EMF safety standards is proposed.

1. Electromagnetic frequencies in the RF/MW wavelength also increase the permeability of the blood/gut barrier (similar to the blood brain barrier which is also opened by weak electromagnetic fields) which allow foreign materials from the gut and partially-digested food to enter the bloodstream which can trigger the generation of antibodies and an autoimmune response. . . .
PRESS RELEASE from Susan Foster - EM-Radiation Research Trust
Similar to the Canadian Royal Society panel that "reviewed" Health Canada's guideline for RF exposure, Safety Code 6, a major European commission has cherry-picked both the panel members and the studies being reviewed, ensuring that industry-biased standards remain unchanged.
IS THERE A SCIENTIST IN THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION'S SCENIHR
& THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION
WHO IS SUPPRESSING LENNART HARDELL'S SCIENCE?
" . . . On one hand, the Hardell Group from Sweden led by oncologist Dr. Lennart Hardell published five more studies in 2013 - for the first time looking at over 20 years of data. As a result of these findings Dr. Hardell has called for an urgent upgrading of the classification of RF - EMF from 2B to Group 1 - a known human carcinogen. If IARC were to accept Dr. Hardell's recommendation, RF - EMF would then be placed in the same carcinogenic category as tobacco and asbestos.
"On the other hand, there appears to be a back-room effort to ignore, denounce and bury Dr. Hardell's newest science by two highly recognized groups, the World Health Organization and SCENIHR, the European Commission's Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks. . .

" . . . Of particular concern is the
created by computers and
other electronic devices, which is often
called "dirty current." This current is
created by numerous devices and is
conducted nearly everywhere. The
wiring in buildings then acts as antennae for the current, silently and
insidiously assaulting those who play
and work nearby.
"In other words, the wires that deliver electricity have also become conduits for deadly high-frequency radiation, a form of electrical pollution that has largely escaped attention by the medical community.
"The increased prevalence of this radiofrequency current has coincided with an alarming increase in the prevalence of ailments such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, attention deficit disorder, diabetes and asthma . . .
