Phone makers’ own scientists discover that bedtime use can lead to headaches, confusion and depression


“Radiation from mobile phones delays and reduces sleep, and causes headaches and confusion, according to a new study…. “The research, sponsored by the mobile phone companies themselves, shows that using the handsets before bed causes people to take longer to reach the deeper stages of sleep and to spend less time in them, interfering with the body’s ability to repair damage suffered during the day.

“The findings are especially alarming for children and teenagers, most of whom – surveys suggest – use their phones late at night and who especially need sleep. Their failure to get enough can lead to mood and personality changes, ADHD-like symptoms, depression, lack of concentration and poor academic performance.”

“The study – carried out by scientists from the blue-chip Karolinska Institute and Uppsala University in Sweden and from Wayne State University in Michigan, USA – is thought to be the most comprehensive of its kind….” Published by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium and funded by the Mobile Manufacturers Forum, representing the main handset companies, it has caused serious concern among top sleep experts, one of whom said that there was now “more than sufficient evidence” to show that the radiation “affects deep sleep.”

“The scientists studied 35 men and 36 women aged between 18 and 45. Some were exposed to radiation that exactly mimicked what is received when using mobile phones; others were placed in precisely the same conditions, but given only “sham” exposure, receiving no radiation at all….The people who had received the radiation took longer to enter the first of the deeper stages of sleep, and spent less time in the deepest one. The scientists concluded: “The study indicates that during laboratory exposure to 884 MHz wireless signals components of sleep believed to be important for recovery from daily wear and tear are adversely affected.”

“The embarrassed [manufacturers] played down the results, insisting – at apparent variance with this published conclusion – that its “results were inconclusive” and that “the researchers did not claim that exposure caused sleep disturbance”….”We did find an effect from mobile phones from exposure scenarios that were realistic. This suggests that they have measurable effects on the brain.”…”the radiation may activate the brain’s stress system, “making people more alert and more focused, and decreasing their ability to wind down and fall asleep”.

“About half of the people studied believed themselves to be “electrosensitive”, reporting symptoms such as headaches and impaired cognitive function from mobile phone use. But they proved to be unable to tell if they had been exposed to the radiation in the test.”…” This strengthens the conclusion of the study, as it disposes of any suggestion that knowledge of exposure influenced sleeping patterns. Even more significantly, it throws into doubt the relevance of studies the industry relies on to maintain that the radiation has no measurable effects.”…”A series of them … have similarly found that people claiming to be electrosensitive could not distinguish when the radiation was turned on in laboratory conditions, suggesting that they were not affected.”…”Critics have attacked the studies’ methodology, but the new findings deal them a serious blow. For they show that the radiation did have an effect, even though people could not tell when they were exposed.”

“It also complements other recent research. A massive study, following 1,656” … “teenagers for a year, found most of them used their phones after going to bed. It concluded that those who did this once a week were more than three times – and those who used them more often more than five times – as likely to be “very tired”….the director of [a] Sleep Centre, says: “There is now more than sufficient evidence, from a large number of reputable investigators who are finding that mobile phone exposure an hour before sleep adversely affects deep sleep.”  [Another director of a] Sleep Institute added: “Anything that disrupts the integrity of your sleep will potentially have adverse consequences in functioning during the day, such as grouchiness, difficulty concentrating, and in children hyperactivity and behaviour problems.”

The largest study ever done on wireless safety, which involved over 220 scientists around the world, demonstrated clinical evidence of double strand DNA breakage caused by cell phone radiation…..proved double strand DNA breakage along with altered gene mutation as well. … Swedish neurologist … who has been doing research studies for over 15 years, has verbalized about cell phone radiation, “This is the largest human biological experiment in the history of civilization”.

….a highly respected scientist, found shocking penetration rates of radiation in children as compared to adults. These differences in exposure signify potentially serious health risks for children in the area of cancer, genetic damage, disruptions of cellular, immune and nervous system functions. Scientists say that the thickness of the skull in children makes a difference. It is quite thin compared with adults, and there is more brain fluid – which means that the radio frequencies can travel through the brain more easily .


The BEFORE photo: Only 15 minutes use of a cell phone can create significant heating of tissues in the head. The orange, red and pink colors indicate the areas being heated.

The AFTER photo was taken after 15 minutes of using the same cell phone NOW protected with BIOPRO harmonization technology! Tissue temperatures remained normal! (Blue and green indicate coolness!)

Testing Details: The testing Protocol followed the IACT… guidelines….digital infrared imaging was performed …. The thermal window used was 10 degrees Celcius with each color on the color bar representing 1 degree Celcius. The ambient room temperature remained at 20 degrees Celcius throughout the test. A 15 minute equilibration period was used. The purpose of the testing was to determine if there is a change in infrared emission of the body part near a cellular phone with and without the BIOPRO EMF-Harmonization Chips in place.

40 studies and proof at http://www.bioenergeticsinstitute.com

Many national and international organizations have recognized the need to define the true risk of low intensity, non-thermal RF/MW radiation exposure, calling for intensive scientific investigation to answer the open questions. These include:

  • The World Health Organization, noting reports of “cancer, reduced fertility, memory loss, and adverse changes in the behavior and development of children.”
  • Journal of American Medical Association, “talking 500 minutes per month increases the probability of brain cancer by 140%”
  • Reproductive Research Center at Cleveland Clinic, “men who carry their mobiles near the groin on a belt or in a pocket could potentially have their sperm count reduced by as much as 30 %”, also citing that less than 20 % of the sperm looked normal under the microscope.
  • Stewart Inquiry U.K. “Young people under the age of 16 are strongly advised to use mobile phones for essential purposes only and to keep those calls short”

Day in and day out, you may be exposing yourself to more stress than you thought by simply using your Cell Phone, PDA or Bluetooth headset, computers, laptops, and other devices. Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emitted from these devices has been linked to various stress-induced problems and illnesses and could very well be compromising your health and well being. As a leader in the field of bioenergetics, BIOPRO’s suite of products are the most advanced dual action technology designed to significantly address this newest source of stress in our daily lives.

BIOPRO’s suite of products combine the benefits of two powerful, innovative and scientifically substantiated technologies: BIOPRO’s patented noise field nano-technology MRET (Molecular Resonance Effect Technology), and its proprietary subtle energy innovation ERT (Energy Resonance Technology). Individually and collectively, these cutting-edge technologies offer a groundbreaking and effective way to deal with the cumulative stress associated with living in today’s electronic environment.

Put stress on hold today and enjoy the conveniences of modern life with the one-and-only suite of synergistic products.

HOW DO THEY WORK?

Everyone who uses wireless devices or spends time in areas where other people use wireless technology needs intervention. Radio waves coming from these devices trigger responses that lead to effects ranging from anxiety disorders, learning problems, and electrosensitivity to immunological deficiencies and cancer.

Doctors have told us that the MRET and ERT technologies are a very effective combined intervention because MRET emits a field that prevents biological tissue from reacting. ERT minimizes the symptoms by restoring cellular communication. This combined intervention represents the most efficient means of controlling this radio wave damage available anywhere in the world.

HOW DO YOU KNOW THEY WORK?

This patented, nano-technology has been scientifically tested and proven in laboratories at leading medical centers and universities around the world! Here is a list of some of them:

This is a little bit off topic, but so many people use these therapies to counteract EMF’s, it seemed important to share what was sent….there are three days left to write to Congress.

“… just spent three days reading, re-reading, researching and discussing the proposed FDA guidelines for “Complementary and Alternative Medicine” with two FDA attorneys. You can download a copy of this proposal for yourself at: http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/dockets/06d0480/06d0480.htm.

” this FDA attack on complementary and alternative health care, …considered it another “Chicken Little” rumor. On further study, I’m appalled at the speed with which the pharmaceutical companies are implementing Codex Alimentarius in the USA. If you don’t suspect the pharmaceutical companies control the FDA, you may want to research that further by visiting http://www.HealthFreedomUSA.org.

”This insidious proposal is designed to redefine every complementary and alternative health care modality and product as “medicine.” This has direct implications on the services and products provided by every alternative health care professional. There is no facet of complementary and alternative health care that is not affected. If the FDA adopts this proposal, all natural health care would be illegal even for medical doctors.”

”Essential oils, herbs, herbal remedies, homeopathic remedies, minerals, nutritional supplements, plant enzymes and vitamins are redefined in this proposal as “medicine.” Very simply, medicine is under the jurisdiction of the FDA and, by law, only licensed medical doctors may prescribe “medicines.” Anybody else who advises, advocates, counsels, distributes, markets, recommends or suggests anybody use “medicine” is practicing medicine without a license. This is a felony in the USA punishable by fines and incarceration.”

”Aromatherapy, auricular therapy, biofeedback, color therapy, homeopathy, hypnotism, naturopathy, neurotherapy, nutritional consulting, reflexology, sound therapy and wellness consulting are among the alternative health modalities being redefined as “Alternative Medicine.” This subtle change of vocabulary from “alternative health care” to “alternative medicine” makes all of these industries subject to control by the FDA as medicine. Only medical doctors would be allowed to provide, prescribe and supervise the delivery of these services. Anybody else who provided any of these services would be practicing medicine without a license and subject to incarceration and fines.”

”That’s the bad news. The good news is we have until April 30, 2007 to voice our opinion against this proposal to eliminate complementary and alternative health care in America. Almost 100,000 people have already filed their objection….”

”Please stand up and be counted. Go to http://tinyurl.com/2u7ghc and file your petition in support of natural health care, in support of complementary and alternative health care as we know it today. If you require more information, please visit http://www.HealthFreedomUSA.org or read the FDA proposed policy.”

Though intended for renovations, Chris Anderson would like all visitors to deposit their cellular phones in the cement mixer by his front door. This sounds excessive – until you step into Anderson’s orchard, where the pegged needle of a shrieking electromagnetic radiation (EMR) meter placed beside a connected cellphone still shows significant exposure 100 feet away.

Much to the chagrin of this certified EMR-mitigation specialist, every day some 300 million cell phone users are “reaching out and touching someone you love. Yourself, and anyone else within range of the microwaves emitted by your cell phone.”……Silicon sensors are already calling to each other. Soon, countless communicating microchips embedded in everything from bumpers to brooms will be sending streams of encoded electrical energy through glass, steel, concrete, bone and flesh. Exquisitely sensitive to subtle electromagnetic harmonies, human brains and bodies as intricate as galaxies depend on tiny electrical impulses to conduct complex life-processes – including the ability to read, recall and respond to these words. Acting as antennas, our anatomies just as easily tune into spurious signals from radio and microwave transmissions. .

….”a worse frequency could not have been chosen for the human anatomy.”

As cell phones conquer consumer minds and markets, researcher Carolanne Patton notes that “the brain reaches peak absorption in the UHF bands, right where cellular telecommunications operate.” British military scientists have discovered that cellphone transmissions disrupt the brain sites for memory and learning, causing forgetfulness and sudden confusion.

Other studies show that electromagnetic signals from cellular phones reduce the ability to concentrate, calculate and coordinate complicated activities such as driving a car. Startled by $4 billion a year in extra claims among cellphone-wielding drivers, North American insurers did a double-take that found simply juggling `cell phones is not causing a 600% increase in accidents over other drivers busy shaving, applying makeup, tuning radios, taming pets, making out, pouring coffee, retrieving dropped cigarettes, talking and gesturing to passengers, or actually steering the vehicle….Instead of just another dangerous distraction, tests conducted by the U.S.Department of Energy found that using a cell phone severely impairs memory and reaction times. “Hands-free” mobile speaker-phones cause even more crashes because they typically emit 10-times more brainwave interference than handheld units.

For all drivers dialing out on their cell phones, University of Toronto investigators report that the heightened probability of cracking up your car persists for up to 15-minutes after completing a call. That’s comparable to the risk of crashing while driving dead drunk exclaims Dr. Chris Runball, chairman of the B.C. Medical Association’s emergency medical services committee. Reeling from “dial-a-collision” costs, the government of British Columbia may join England, Spain, Israel, Switzerland and Brazil in restricting or banning the use of cell phones by drivers.

In New Zealand, cellphone towers are prohibited on school property because of possible health effects.
But Health Canada regulations ignore the hidden hazards of cell-wrenching cellphones, which send pulsed signals through the skull in a process one expert likens to “jackhammers on the brain.”

…. cellphone addiction mirrors the prestigious early allure of smoking – as well as an immensely profitable industry’s steadfast denial of risk and responsibility. …Sir William Stewart told London’s Financial Times that “children may be more vulnerable because of their developing nervous system, the greater absorption of energy in the tissues of the head and a longer lifetime of exposure.”

…a Ph.D. biophysicist warns that headaches, fatigue, lethargy, nausea, dizziness, depression, arteriosclerosis and even Alzheimer’s can result from frequent or prolonged calls on cell phones.

“There is also a higher incidence of cardiac problems,” Cherry comments, “in terms of the timing function in hearts. You get more heart attacks and more heart disease – it has now been shown in many studies.”

…..cell phones can murderously modify moods. In brains and bodies seriously derailed by tiny imbalances in trace minerals and hormones, depression, suicide, anger, rage and violence can result when calcium and serotonin levels are disrupted by cellphone transmissions….
.
….DNA damage is passed on to succeeding generations.

….we forget how inconvenient it is to contract cancer. …B-cell lymphomas doubled in mice within 18 months of one-hour daily exposure to power densities experienced by a cellphone user. B-cell lymphomas are implicated in 85% of all cancers.

…Sleep disorders, she learned, are common among people exposed to high levels of electromagnetic pollution.

…there is nothing “safe” about the new 1.9 gigahertz broadcasting frequency. Much like a boxer taking repeated blows to the head, rapidly pulsing cellphones signal permanent brain damage. A study by Dr. Peter Franch found unequivocally that “cells are permanently damaged by cellular phone frequencies.” This cellular damage, Franch noted, is maximized at low dosage – and “inherited unchanged, from generation to generation.”

….the production of histamine, which triggers bronchial spasms, is nearly doubled after exposure to mobile phone transmissions. Cellphones also reduce the effectiveness of anti-asthmatic drugs, and retard recovery from illness.

…. 217 Hz spikes are very close to the frequencies of human cell membranes.

…..because cancer takes decades to develop, it will be another 10 or 20 years before “mobiles” manifest a big bonanza in brain tumors. But he adds, we’re already seeing “acute effects that are noticed within minutes of using a cell phone.”

After two minutes’ conversation, a cell phone’s digitized impulses disable the safety barrier that isolates the brain from destructive proteins and poisons in the blood.

…If you must pack a cell phone, treat it like a loaded pistol. Keep it turned off. Don’t carry it near ovaries, testicles, or the heart. For partial protection, buy an antenna shield. Limit calls to one-minute, six to 10 minutes a month. Never fire off a cellphone with children anywhere in sight.

A better bet is to facilitate the growth of organic telephone networks with lots of fibre. Instead of more microwave towers, “We should be wiring up our cities with fibre-optic cables to provide Internet, fax, telephone, radio and television at very high quality,” Cherry urges, “rather than saturating our cities with the microwave, radiowave and low frequency signals all the time.”

When it comes to cells, consciousness and cell phones, every call is collect. How can convenience count more than cancer? What is gained by being in constant contact with disembodied voices, while being “out of touch” with the friends and neighbours around us? Are we comfortable having our location traced by monitoring authorities?

Unless we start voting with our wallets, consumer complacency could prove as species-limiting as corporate cynicism.

“Microwave frequencies are the same as those used in radar and your microwave oven,” … “You wouldn’t think of sticking your head in the oven, but there is no hesitation to putting the cell phone to your ear.”

It’s worth reading this whole article…. put this in your url NOW:

“In a recent ES survey, the five most common symptoms experienced when exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) which are present wherever electric current is running, and which should be considered warning signs, were:
skin itch/rash/flushing/burning and/or tingling,
confusion/poor concentration and/or memory loss,
fatigue/weakness,
headache, brain fog, ‘insects crawling’
and chest pain/heart problems.

“Skin problems and memory difficulties tied for first place among the overall symptoms.”
“Research by Professor Olle Johansson at the Karolinska Health Institute in Sweden has objectively confirmed the skin bioeffects using typical mobile phone frequencies. Less commonly reported symptoms included nausea, panic attacks, insomnia, seizures, ear pain/ringing in the ears, feeling a vibration, paralysis, and dizziness. Some ES patients experience only one symptom when EMF exposed, or afterwards, but more often more than one symptom is apparent.””We believe ES results in a special kind of tinnitus, zinging/crackling/clicking rather than whistling/singing. With cardiac effects it is the rhythm that is disturbed, resulting in racing, but also brachycardia, or slowing down.”

“There are many more details all over this website [link below], including personal accounts of what it is like, it frequently is associated with multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), there is an unfortunate synergy between the two reactions both contributing to worsening the other.”

“In Sweden ES, or EHS (Electrically Hyper-Sensitive), is an officially recognised condition with 285,000 registered sufferers….”

“Internationally acknowledged experts in the field of RF research have shown that RF of the type used in digital cellular antennas and phones can have critical effects on cell cultures, animals, and people in laboratories and have also found epidemiological evidence (studies of communities, not in the laboratory) of serious health effects at “non-thermal levels,” where the intensity of the radiation was too low to cause heating. They have found:

  • Increased cell growth of brain cancer cells(4)
  • A doubling of the rate of lymphoma in mice(5)
  • Changes in tumor growth in rats(6)
  • An increased number of tumors in rats(7)
  • Increased breaks in double and single stranded DNA, our genetic material(8)
  • 2 to 4 times as many cancers in Polish soldiers exposed to RF(9)
  • More childhood leukemia in children exposed to RF(10)
  • Changes in sleep patterns and REM type sleep(11)
  • Headaches caused by RF exposure(12)
  • Neurologic changes(13) including
    • Changes in the blood-brain-barrier(14)
    • Changes in cellular morphology (including cell death)(15)
    • Changes in neural electrophysiology (EEG)(16)
    • Changes in neurotransmitters (which affect motivation and pain perception)(17)
    • Metabolic changes (of calcium ions, for instance)(18)
    • Cytogenetic effects (which can affect cancer, Alzheimer’s, neurodegenerative diseases)(19)
  • Decreased memory, attention, and slower reaction time in school children(20)
  • Retarded learning in rats indicating a deficit in spatial “working memory”(21)
  • Increased blood pressure in healthy men(22)
  • Damage to eye cells when combined with commonly used glaucoma medications(23)”

A Physician Petition: the Freiburger Appeal

“Hundreds of physicians have been signing a petition that raises health concerns over mobile phone technology: base stations, mobile phones and digital cordless phones. The appeal states:

We have observed, in recent years, a dramatic rise in severe and chronic diseases among our patients, especially:

  • Learning, concentration, and behavioural disorders (e.g. attention deficit disorder, ADD)
  • Extreme fluctuations in blood pressure, ever harder to influence with medications
  • Heart rhythm disorders
  • Heart attacks and strokes among an increasingly younger population
  • Brain-degenerative diseases (e.g. Alzheimer–s) and epilepsy
  • Cancerous afflictions: leukaemia, brain tumours”

“Moreover, we have observed an ever-increasing occurrence of various disorders, often misdiagnosed in patients as psychosomatic:

  • Headaches, migraines
  • Chronic exhaustion
  • Inner agitation
  • Sleeplessness, daytime sleepiness
  • Tinnitus
  • Susceptibility to infection
  • Nervous and connective tissue pains, for which the usual causes do not explain even the most conspicuous symptoms”

“The Freiburger Appeal states: “We can no longer believe this to be purely coincidence, far too often do we observe a marked concentration of particular illnesses in correspondingly HFMR-polluted areas or apartments. Too often does a long-term disease or affliction improve or disappear in a relatively short time after reduction or elimination of HFMR pollution in the patient’s environment. Too often are our observations confirmed by on-site measurements of HFMR of unusual intensity. On the basis of our daily experiences, we hold the current mobile communications technology (introduced in 1992 and since then globally extensive) and cordless digital telephones (DECT standard) to be among the fundamental triggers for this fatal development. One can no longer evade these pulsed microwaves. They heighten the risk of already-present chemical/physical influences, stress the body–s immune system, and can bring the body–s still-functioning regulatory mechanisms to a halt. Pregnant women, children, adolescents, elderly and sick people are especially at risk.”

“Microwave Sickness or Neurasthenia” August 31, 2006

“From 1953 to 1976, the Soviets directed microwave radiation at the U.S. embassy in Moscow from the roof of an adjacent building. The possibility that this microwave exposure could induce health problems in the embassy staff prompted the government to begin classified research programs on the health effects of microwave exposure. One of these programs, called “Project Pandora,” was organized and administered by the psychology division of the psychiatry research section of Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR). Public attention was not drawn to these events in Moscow and the question of possible health effects from NIEM exposure until the 1976 release of information by the U.S. State Department accusing the Soviet Union of bombarding the U.S. embassy in Moscow with microwave radiation for the purpose of disturbing the health of the staff. The State Department indicated that, in addition to the mass interference and interception of radar-based communications, the microwave radiation could have adverse effects on the health of the occupants of the embassy. In fact, Soviet data provided the strongest basis for this accusation. The Soviet NIEM research literature reported adverse health effects in laboratory animals and in Soviet radar workers at levels well below the 10 mW/|cm.sup.2~ U.S. ANSI safety recommendations.”

“In 1976, when the Moscow embassy incident was made public, the Soviet NIEM standard was more than 100 times lower than the U.S. recommendations. Many comparisons and concerns regarding the discrepancy between the exposure guidelines of the two nations appeared in the U.S. media. It is interesting to note that the media coverage rarely mentioned the fact that the ANSI recommendations were intended for all U.S. industry staff and military personnel. The Soviet standards, on the other hand, excluded exposure of military personnel (National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements |NCRP~, 1986).”

“The attention to the Soviet studies claiming adverse health effects brought the discipline of psychology to the forefront of NIEM research because many of the Soviet laboratory observations purporting potential health-related effects on small animals were from behavioral studies. Also, almost all of the symptoms reported in Soviet communications and radar workers were psychological in nature. These symptoms included lethargy, lack of concentration, headaches, depression, and impotence. Soviet medical journals termed these collective symptoms microwave sickness. In the U.S. literature the symptoms sometimes have been referred to as neurasthenia (Dodge & Glaser, 1977; Glaser & Dodge, 1977).”
