Israeli study says regular mobile use increases tumour risk

“Regular use of mobile telephones increases the risk of developing tumours, a new scientific study …. revealed on Friday. ” “…the report .. …newspaper put the risk of developing a parotid gland tumour nearly 50 percent higher for frequent mobile phone users — more than 22 hours a month. The risk was still higher if users clamped the phone to the same ear, did not use hands-free devices or were in rural areas.” “Analysis restricted to regular users or to conditions that may yield higher levels of exposure (eg heavy use in rural areas) showed consistently elevated risks,” said an abstract …made available…. The study included 402 benign and 58 malignant incident cases of parotid gland tumour diagnosed in Israel at age 18 years or more, in 2001-2003. The research was ….part of a World Health Organisation project.”

(1) Shocking News (dba) is a registered publisher of science-based information dedicated to public awareness of electric and magnetic  fields (EMF) in the living environment and their effects on the health and welfare of humans and animals. Editor is Don Hillman Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Department of Animal Science, with help from his wife Mary, MS, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI.  Member of The American Society of Agricultural Engineers, and The American Dairy Science Association. Telephone (517) 351-9561.“Credible scientific journals have reported that excessive exposure of humans and animals to electric and magnetic fields (EMF) can affect mental and physical health of people and animals.”

“Concern of health officials about increasing diabetes, obesity, and deaths from childhood leukemia of the U.S. population are reported daily in local news. This review relates mainly to recent discoveries showing relationships of EMF to diabetes and leukemia, although evidence for brain tumors and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is equally apparent.”

“EMF in some homes, schools, and workplaces may be excessive where utility primary neutrals are grounded to earth and bonded to secondary (user) neutral conductors and to water pipes which permeate the walls and living environment of premises. Exposure to electronic equipment emitting excessive EMF contributes further to radio frequency radiation (RFR) sensitivity and illness”……”Electricity and EMF permeate the premises of every citizen, yet no monitoring nor protection from dirty electricity is enforced by law while utilities are increasingly deregulated and contributing to pollution.”

“Diabetes claimed 69,301 lives in 2000. Today in the United States there are 18.2 million diabetics; a third of whom aren’t aware they have the disease. Every year 1.3 million more new cases are diagnosed in people 20 years and older, according to the Joslin-Diabetes Center in Boston, the American Diabetes Association, and the Associated Press. Diabetics are more prone to heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, nervous system disease, and amputations [Lansing State Journal, 9/28/04]…..”

How Cell Phones May Cause Autism November 27, 2007

How Cell Phones May Cause Autism

 

“Rates of autism, a disabling neurodevelopmental disorder, have increased nearly 60-fold since the late 1970s, with the most significant increases occurring in the past decade.”

“The cause of autism is unknown, although theories include such potential causes as:

  • Genetic predisposition
  • Inability to clear heavy metals
  • Increased vulnerability to oxidative stress
  • Environmental exposures including mercury preservatives in vaccines
  • Trans-generational accumulation of toxic heavy metals”

“Now a groundbreaking new theory has been suggested by a study published in the Journal of the Australasian College of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine: electromagnetic radiation (EMR) from cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi devices and other similar wireless technologies as an accelerating factor in autism.”

EMR May be the Missing Link

“The study, which involved over five years of research on children with autism and other membrane sensitivity disorders, found that EMR negatively affects cell membranes, and allows heavy metal toxins, which are associated with autism, to build up in your body. ”

“Meanwhile, the researchers pointed out that autism rates have increased concurrently along with the proliferation of cell phones and wireless use.”

“EMR, the researchers say, could impact autism by facilitating early onset of symptoms or by trapping heavy metals inside of nerve cells, which could accelerate the onset of symptoms of heavy metal toxicity and hinder therapeutic clearance of the toxins.”

Speaking in reference to the huge rise in autism rates, Dr. George Carlo, the study’s co-author, said, “A rise of this magnitude must have a major environmental cause. Our data offer a reasonable mechanistic explanation for a connection between autism and wireless technology.”

“They also suggest that EMR from wireless devices works in conjunction with environmental and genetic factors to cause autism.”…”the three largest factors at play are

  • Genetically determined detoxification capacity
  • Early insult to immune system via contaminated vaccines and
  • Being born with high levels of toxic burden and into a technologically advanced society riddled with ever increasing levels of radiation”

If you are sensitive to electromagnetic frequencies, it is becoming harder to know how to avoid them.  If you have physical problems that you do not understand, this could be part of the problem.

Cell Phone Guns
Netlore Archive: According to this email flier and attached video, law enforcement officials have discovered .22 caliber guns disguised as cell phones being smuggled into western Europe from Croatia
Description: Email flier
Status: True
Circulating since: Dec. 2000
Analysis: See below

Fwd: .22 cal Cellphones!! Deadly Decoys
Cell Phone Guns Discovered

Hitting the 5, 6, 7 and 8 buttons on the phone gun fires four .22-caliber rounds in quick succession. (US Customs Service)

By Lucrezia Cuen

L O N D O N, Dec. 6 At first sight it looks like a regular cell phone same size, same shape, same overall appearance. But beneath the digital face lies a .22-caliber pistol a phone gun capable of firing four rounds in quick succession with a touch of the otherwise standard keypad. European law enforcement officials stunned by the discovery of these deadly decoys say phone guns are changing the rules of engagement in Europe.

"We find it very, very alarming," says Wolfgang Dicke of the German Police union. "It means police will have to draw their weapons whenever a person being checked reaches for their mobile phone."

[Text continues]

Cell phone gun loaded and ready to fire
Firing the mobile phone gun
Opening the chamber of the cell phone gun

Comments: True. As first reported in an ABC News article dated December 6, 2000 (from which the above text was clearly taken) and later by Time magazine, .22 caliber guns disguised as cell phones have been confiscated from smugglers in western Europe on more than one occasion in the past several years.

The guns, which are capable of firing four rounds in quick succession, are believed to have been manufactured in Yugoslavia or Croatia. The “antennae” of the gutted phones function as gun barrels and numbers 5 through 8 on the keypad as triggers.

The images at right, which show a cell phone gun being fired and disassembled to show the bullet chamber, are from a short video demonstration circulating as an attachment to the above email message. It appears to be authentic.

Security experts say the cell phone guns, as well as other “improvised explosive devices,” can be detected by screening equipment now in use at airports internationally. Though they have been the subject of security alerts in the U.S. as recently as December 2003, none have yet been sighted in North America.”

Read this before you view the video!

Most see airport security as a pain. Some deal better than others.
Some feel violated, when you watch this movie, you'll understand why they want
your cell phone through the x-ray machine.

Read this and then watch the video clip. If you get asked to test
your cell phone at the airport, this is the reason. Cell phone guns
have arrived.  They are real.
The attached video clip shows how cell phone guns operate. These
phones are  not in the U.S. yet, but they are in use overseas. Beneath the
digital phone face is a .22 caliber handgun capable of firing four rounds in rapid
succession using the standard telephone keypad.

European law enforcement officials are stunned by the discovery of
these deadly decoys. They say phone guns are changing the rules of
engagement in Europe.

"Only when you have one in your hand do you realize that they are
heavier than a regular cell phone." Be patient if security asks to look at
your cell phone or turn it on to show that it works."
They have a good reason!

“Does my hybrid have elevated electromagnetic fields? If so, will they hurt my family or me?”

“To date, neither an exhaustive web search nor the services of a crack librarian …have been able to unearth precise measurements of electromagnetic fields, or EMF, in hybrids. What you do with this knowledge, or lack thereof, depends largely upon your personality. Currently, the public can only be sure that the electronics contained in the vehicles meet FCC standards for electromagnetic interference (EMI) with other electronic devices.”
“EMFs come from power lines, televisions, microwave ovens, and (hybrid and conventional) cars.”
