Electromagnetic Radiation From Cell Phones

Cell Phone Electromagnetic Radiation Exposure
Here's a video about people who have had brain tumors and believe that they were caused by cell phone use. This came  from 

 10 years ago a friend of mine had the left side of his head around his ear swell out the side of his head more than an inch. He had ringing in his ear, loss of balance and became confused and disoriented. We all wondered what was wrong with him. He went to the doctor who eventually diagnosed him with acoustic neuroma (benign tumor of the inner ear drum) this tumor can cause deafness. It is usually not deadly but very unpleasant. We racked our brains trying to figure out what could have caused this. The doctors were of no help, giving us tons of "gray", "iffy" possibilities, ranging from his diet to the water he drank. It was not until we came across several similar stories and some highly technical, yet obscure research papers that it all started to become suddenly clear: It had to be his CELLPHONE!!! This was the LAST thing I would have guessed when this happened, but it also triggered the beginning of my in depth research into the dangers of Electro-Magnetic Field Radiation from cell phones and wireless technology. This research has brought me into contact with literally hundreds of people suffering from some sort of Electromagnetic Poisoning, and made me realize there must be several thousands if not hundreds of thousands more victims out there suffering from these dire effects and not even realizing it!!! Watch these individuals talk about their brain tumors that they feel were caused by cell phones.

There is very real evidence that cell phones, wi-fi, computers and other devices are causing health problems for a number of people. Children especially are at risk from electromagnetic radiation exposure and should be protected from radiation sources especially when they are asleep. Check your own home for sources of radiation and take steps to minimize the levels you find present!

Electromagnetic Radiation Effects Addressed by Canadian Hospital

By William Boardman on 06/24/2012 
Constant exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR) affects all of us. Women’s College Hospital in Toronto is the first Canadian hospital requiring its doctors to be trained in treating the effects of EMR, even as Health Canada, the Canadian government health agency, claimsEMR is probably harmless.
Women’s College Hospital’s Environmental Health Clinic hosted a one-day seminar in May to raise medical awareness of the symptoms exposure to electromagnetic radiation. The symptoms identified by the hospital include disrupted sleep, fatigue, headaches, nausea, dizziness, heart palpitations, memory problems, and skin rashes. Although these symptoms can arise from a variety of causes, they are now grouped under the label of “Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity”, or EMS.
At the seminar, Dr. Ray Copes, chief, environmental and occupational health for Public Health Ontario, noted the difficulty of assessing the research on EMS, since there is no single, universally accepted definition of the condition.
“We need to create more awareness about this condition. Health-care practitioners need to better understand EMS so they can help their patients prevent and manage their symptoms. The public needs to know how to protect themselves from the broad range of health impacts electromagnetic fields have on their minds and bodies,” said Dr. Rina Bray, medical director of the Environmental Health Clinic, in a statement released by the hospital.
As we continue to bring more electronic devices into our lives we increase the amount of EMF in our own personal spaces. These technologies are so new that we simply don't know about how the Electromagnetic Radiation  will affect us over the long term. It might be prudent to minimize your exposure to personal electronic devices until more is known about the long-term results.

Electromagnetic Radiation In Your Home

This article from Dr. Mercola was published in 2010. He discusses the dangers of the many sources of EMF and the effects that Electromagnetic Radiation has on human health. The situation has gotten worse with the proliferation of smart phones, pad computers and electronics of all types. Of particular concern is the drive to use Smart Meters on all homes. These devices are known to emit high levels of radiation and are often in homes next to bedrooms and family rooms where people spend a lot of time. Take a look at this informative article:

Cell Phones are Dangerous, But This May Be Far Worse...

An increasingly alarmed army of international scientists have reached a controversial conclusion: 

The "electrosmog" that first began developing with the rollout of the electrical grid a century ago and now envelops every inhabitant of Earth is responsible for many of the diseases that impair or kill them.
During the past 100 years, we have methodically filled in the electromagnetic spectrum far beyond what occurs in nature.
Recently, several developments have highlighted the growing hazards of EMF pollution and the crucial need to address them.
In 2007, the Bioinitiative Working Group released a 650-page report citing more than 2,000 studies (many very recent) that detail the toxic effects of EMFs from all sources. Chronic exposure to even low-level radiation (like that from cell phones), can cause a variety of cancers, impair immunity, and contribute to Alzheimer's disease and dementia, heart disease, and many other ailments.
Additionally, every single study of brain tumors that looks at 10 or more years of use shows an increased risk of brain cancer.
A recent study from Sweden is particularly frightening, suggesting that if you started using a cell phone as a teen, you have a 5 times greater risk of brain cancer than those who started as an adult.
A recent study showed that exposure to very-low-frequency voltage signals (1-100kHz), or "dirty electricity,” can greatly increase your risk of melanoma, thyroid cancer, and uterine cancer. These signals are largely by-products of electronics, such as modern energy-efficient appliances, televisions, stereos and other entertainment devices.
These electronic devices use a lower voltage than other appliances, and this manipulation of current creates a complex electromagnetic field. This field not only radiates into the immediate environment but also can travel along home or office wiring throughout the neighborhood.
"For the first time in our evolutionary history, we have generated an entire secondary, virtual, densely complex environment — an electromagnetic soup — that essentially overlaps the human nervous system," says Michael Persinger, PhD, a neuroscientist at Laurentian University who has studied the effects of EMFs on cancer cells.
And it appears that, more than a century after Thomas Edison switched on his first light bulb, the health consequences of that continual overlap are just now beginning to be documented.

Of particular note is the suggestion by Camilla Rees of creating a "sleep sanctuary" that is free of electromagnetic radiation. We spend a third of our lives sleeping and that is a time when our bodies are particularly vulnerable. Follow the link to get some tips on keeping your sleep habitat radiation free.

Laptops and Radiation

In this article from earlier this year Dr. Mercola explains some of the health risks that are incurred when using a laptop actually on your lap and even on a desktop. All computers emit some electromagnetic radiation and each brand may have different levels. Here's some insights into an invisible form of health risk.

Warning: Why You Should Avoid Using Your Laptop as Recommended

March 05 2012 

By Dr. Mercola
Using your laptop computer on your lap is, paradoxically, not a safe way to use it.
Just as research is emerging showing that cell phones should not actually be held right next to your head (for instance, the iPhone manual states the phone must be at least 5/8 inch away from your body or ear for "safe operation"), research is showing that spending long hours with a laptop on your lap -- the use for which it is intended -- is likely harmful.
Ironic, isn't it?

Researchers Warn Laptop Computers Should be Renamed to Protect Users' Health

New research published in the Archives of Environmental and Occupational Health evaluated five commonly used laptops of different brands.
After measuring the EMF exposure produced, researchers found EMF values were within the guidelines put forth by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), but "considerably higher than the values recommended by 2 recent guidelines for computer monitors magnetic field emissions, MPR II (Swedish Board for Technical Accreditation) and TCO (Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees), and those considered risky for tumor development."
Further they noted that the EMF values became alarmingly high when the laptop was used close to the body:
"When close to the body, the laptop induces currents that are within 34.2% to 49.8% ICNIRP recommendations, but not negligible, to the adult's body and to the fetus (in pregnant women).
On the contrary, the power supply induces strong intracorporal electric current densities in the fetus and in the adult subject, which are respectively 182-263% and 71-483% higher than ICNIRP 98 basic restriction recommended to prevent adverse health effects."
This led them to conclude:
"Laptop is paradoxically an improper site for the use of a LTC, which consequently should be renamed to not induce customers towards an improper use."

Even Typing on a Laptop May Expose You to Unsafe Levels of EMFs

If you use your laptop on a desk, as opposed to your lap, does this mean you're safe? If you want to be sure your health is not at risk, not only should your laptop not be put on your lap, but you should not type on it either. As I explain below, I have used a gauss meter on many notebook computers, and found EMF levels higher than 100 milligauss on most of them; safe ranges are less than 0.3.

You can find out about EMF radiation by using a meter to measure the existing levels of power that are present in your home and office. It's surprising where electromagnetic radiation can come from and you probably have more than one source that is close to you and loved ones. Laptops are in widespread use as are ipads and other pad computers. All put out some radiation. Try to minimize the use of these devices close to your body as we still don't know about the cumulative effect of all of these emitters. Be safe!

Cell Phones and Cancer

Cell Phones emit Radiation

We've all heard that cell phones might possibly be dangerous especially since we hold them close to our heads. This article is an eye opening look at the possibility that they indeed can cause health problems.

By Dr. Mercola
If you think the jury's still out on whether cell phones can be dangerous to your health, then you might want to take the time to listen to this video. Dr. Devra Davis, author of the book, "The Secret History of the War on Cancer," has been researching the safety hazards of radiation emanating from your cell phone.
Like many people, Dr. Davis just didn't believe the possibility of cell phones being dangerous―until she studied it. And now, with the toxicological and epidemiological evidence to back up her claims, she's trying to get the word out that cell phone radiation is not only dangerous, but can be downright lethal.
In her lecture, Dr. Davis explains how the biological impact of your cell phone is notrelated to its power, which is quite weak, but rather to the erratic nature of its signal and its ability to disrupt resonance and interfere with DNA repair. This is now believed to be the most plausible theory for understanding the wide array of health impacts discovered, which includes cancer...

Can Your Cell Phone Cause Cancer?

One interesting case that can serve as an illustrative warning of the cancer-causing potential of cell phones is that of a young woman with no other predisposing risk factors for cancer who came down with multi-focal breast cancer. The case was revealed in the May issue of the Environmental Health Trust's newsletteri.  As it turns out, the young lady had the curious habit of tucking her cell phone into her bra...
Two cancer specialists, Robert Nagourney and John West, concluded there was only one other possibility that might have directly contributed to her breast cancer. "We connected the dots," the patient said. And the dots―quite literally the pattern of the cancer, and distribution of the cancerous cells―lined up perfectly with the shape of her cell phone.

The technology that has given us all smart phones and ipads is new and we don't really know that much about Cell Phone Radiation. It's best to be safe and heed the tips given about how you use these devices.
