There are two primary barriers that have inhibited the development of a strong research program in EMS. They are a paucity of well-trained researchers with an interest in EMS research and a lack of reliable funding sources to support research. There are also three identifiable secondary barriers to EMS research. They are: a lack of recognizing the need for evidence-based practice; standardizing, accessing and sharing data; and complying with the current established ethical requirements for human research.

To some extent, there is a chicken and egg phenomenon at work within the two primary barriers to developing a comprehensive EMS research program. For example, funding agencies understandably prefer to place their funds with researchers who have a track record of proven productivity. However, since there are not many proven researchers with interests in EMS problems, few funds flow into EMS-related research. On the other hand, academic institutions are reluctant to support the professional development of new, EMS-focused researchers because they cannot identify likely funding sources with a history of supporting EMS research.

Dr. Sherry Rogers, an MD who has helped many people with chemical sensitivities, claims that cell phones actually cause leakage of the blood-brain barrier.  “This membrane is designed to to protect our brains from toxic chemicals passing into it.   These radio frequency electromagnetic fields make the blood brain barrier so leaky, that even large proteins, like albumin, which happens to be the carrier for lots of drugs and chemicals, pass right through the blood brain barrier where they damage the neurons.  This leakage causes the onslaught of heavy metals into the brain and it happens within a few hours of exposure…it lasts as long as eight weeks after the exposure.  So lots of other environmental chemicals can sneak into the brain and stockpile during this time.”

The following research indicates that people may be affected by natural changes in electromagnetic frequencies, which can be corroborated by many people who feel climatic changes affecting them.  What questions does this raise for frequencies at even this low level that are artificially produced?  Why are so many children being diagnosed with attention problems?

The effects of extra-low-frequency atmospheric pressure oscillations on human mental activity.

Delyukov A, Didyk L.

Slight atmospheric pressure oscillations (APO) in the extra-low-frequency range below 0.1 Hz, which frequently occur naturally, can influence human mental activity. This phenomenon has been observed in experiments with a group of 12 healthy volunteers exposed to experimentally created APO with amplitudes 30-50 Pa in the frequency band 0.011-0.17 Hz. Exposure of the subjects to APO for 15-30 min caused significant changes in attention and short-term memory functions, performance rate, and mental processing flexibility. The character of the response depended on the APO frequency and coherence. Periodic APO promoted purposeful mental activity, accompanied by an increase in breath-holding duration and a slower heart rate. On the other hand, quasi-chaotic APO, similar to the natural perturbations of atmospheric pressure, disrupted mental activity. These observations suggest that APO could be partly responsible for meteorosensitivity in humans.

EPA’s advice: practice “prudent avoidance.” 

1. Measure your home, work and school environments with a Gauss meter.

2. Measure EMFs inside and outside your home.

3. Avoid playing near power lines, transformers, radar domes and microwave towers.

4. Avoid any area where the field is above 1 mG.

5. Measure the EMF’s from appliances when they are operating.

6. Measure the EMF’s from appliances when they are turned off. Some appliances (like TVs) are still drawing current even when they are off. Microwaves should ALWAYS be unplugged when not in use.

7. Do not use an electric blanket.

8. Do not use a waterbed unless it is unplugged before you go to bed. Even though there is no magnetic field, there may still be a high electric field unless it is unplugged.

9. Distance yourself at least 6 feet away from a color TV.

10. Rearrange your office so that you are not exposed to EMFs from the sides and backs of electric appliances and computers. Put a biopro chip on each of the items.  (http://www.mybiopro.com/jeannine)

11. Place all major electrical appliances, such as computers, TVs, refrigerators etc,against outside walls to avoid creating an EMF field in the next room.

12. Sit as far from your computer as you comfortably can.. Computer monitors vary greatly in the strength of their EMFs. 

13. Chech your computer, printer, scanner, fax machine etc. with a gauss meter. Protect each item with bioprochips.  (http://www.mybiopro.com/jeannine

14. Keep a distance from your microwave oven, or better yet, stop using it!

15. Move all electrical appliances at least 6 feet from your bed. Take the TV out of the bedroom altogether!

16. Eliminate wires running under your bed. Eliminate dimmers and 3-way switches.

17. Cordless appliances such as electric toothbrushes and razors have emf’s. Use traditional items or put bioprochips on them.

18. Consider giving up your quartz-analog watch. It radiates pulsating EMFs along your acupuncture meridians.  Older mechanical windup watches are safer if you need a watch.

19. Wear as little jewelry as possible. Take jewelry off at night.

20. Some people have metal sensitivity which can be aggravated if touching the skin.

21. Measure everything with a gauss meter.

22. EMFs pass through walls. If you see high readings on your Gauss meter, it could could be radiating from the next room…or from outside.

Abstract

We investigated whether a 2-month dietary supplementation of antioxidants, in the form of blueberry phytochemicals, could reverse or retard the age-related decline in temporal processing speed observed in the aged rat. To this end, extracellular single unit responses to frequency modulated (FM) sweeps were recorded in the primary auditory cortex (AI) of aged rats that had been placed on either a blueberry-supplemented or control diet 2 months prior to the physiological recordings. Results showed that most cells recorded from the blueberry-fed rats responded most vigorously to fast FM sweeps, similar to that observed in young rats. In contrast, the majority of cells recorded from the control rats showed a preference for slow FM sweep rates. These results suggest that age-related changes in temporal processing speed in A1 may be reversed by dietary supplementation of blueberry phytochemicals.

While this study does not mention emf’s or radiation, blueberries are very likely to be one of the foods that are helpful in rebalancing the body.
