Suicide rates among teenagers has been increasing, as well as some violent actions.  What is bothering the teens?

Study: EMF, Suicide Risk Linked

By RANDALL CHASE
The Associated Press

“RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Chronic exposure to low-frequency electromagnetic fields may be responsible for a higher suicide risk among electric utility workers, according to researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.”….researchers found electricians for five U.S. power companies had twice the suicide rate and linemen 1 1/2 times the rate of utility workers not employed in those jobs.”

“The findings appeared Wednesday in the April issue [2000] of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.”

“One explanation for the possible link between exposure and suicide is that electromagnetic fields are thought to suppress melatonin levels in the body, said Edwin van Wijngaarden, a doctoral student and lead author of the UNC study….The EMF-cancer link is pretty controversial,” van Wijngaarden said…”This may also be controversial, but at least there is a more plausible biological mechanism involved.”

“Melatonin, a hormone produced by the pineal gland deep in the brain, is thought to play a key role in a person’s sleep cycle and mood….”There does seem to be a link between melatonin levels and depression,” said study co-author David Savitz, a professor and chair of epidemiology at UNC….Researchers said it isn’t known exactly how electromagnetic fields might inhibit melatonin production.”

…”Suicide is the eighth leading cause of death in the United States; 30,000 people took their lives in 1997.”

“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).”

It is time for the funding agencies to realizethat we need to be asking new and different questions

about electropollution, EMF’s, and radiation.

There has been considerable research already done showing

relationships between many dis-ease processes and

electromagnetic frequencies. However, there has been a

limitation in the thinking so far, which raises new questions.

What if the cause and effect are not a direct link?

If the cell membrane is being affected by EMF’s, what effect

does that have on the body?

Would it always be the same effect on different kinds

of people?

If the signalizing enzymes are being affected by EMF’s,

would that always show up as the same kind of disease?

Why are some people more susceptible to symptoms from

EMF’s than others? Is there a genetic difference? A

cumulative difference? A geographic differernce?

A psychological difference? A consciousness difference?

A usuage difference?

How can one possibly set up a truly valid scientific study

when there are so many variables?

How long will it be before more people show signs

of cellular damage? How can it be measured?

What tests are there?

Since kids are on the phone much more than adults,

in some cases, are they likely to show symptoms sooner

because of the cumulative effect, or later because of

stronger immune systems?

These are questions that require the input of many

different kinds of professional to set up a good study.

It’s not so simple as saying A cause B.

How many people have to suffer before this issue is resolved?

It’s time to think outside the box!

“Professor Denis Henshaw, professor of human radiation effects at Bristol University, says that “a huge and substantive body of evidence indicates a range of adverse health effects”. He estimates that the smog causes some 9,000 cases of depression.”

“Perhaps strangest of all, there is increasing evidence that the smog causes some people to become allergic to electricity, leading to nausea, pain, dizziness, depression and difficulties in sleeping and concentrating when they use electrical appliances or go near mobile phone masts. Some are so badly affected that they have to change their lifestyles.”

“While not yet certain how it is caused, both the WHO and the HPA accept that the condition exists, and the UN body estimates that up to three in every 100 people are affected by it.”

“Case History: ‘I felt I was going into meltdown'”

“Until a year ago, Sarah Dacre reckoned she had a “blessed life”. Running her own company, and living in an expensive north London home, the high-earning divorcee described herself as “fab, fit and 40s”. Then suddenly the sight in her right eye failed: she first noticed it when she was unable to read an A-Z map. Soon she was getting pains and numbness in her joints. She could not sleep and spent nights “pacing about like a caged lion”. Her short-term memory failed and if she took notes to remind her, she would forget she had made them.”

“The symptoms got worse whenever she was exposed to electricity. She could not use a computer for more than five minutes without becoming nauseous. Even using a telephone landline gave her a buzzing in the ear and made her feel she was “going into meltdown”.

Many employees use computers, cell phones, copiers, printers, scanners and other electronic equipment to do their jobs. Cubicles in large rooms often have several pieces of electronic equipment in them, so employees sitting in those large rooms are exposed to electromagnetic radiation from a lot of equipment in the environment. Men and and some women are carrying cell phones in their pocket. Some employees work near high transmission lines. All of these things may be contributing to invisible and cumulative health problems.

Employers would be well advised to put universal chips infused with energy resonance technology on their computer equipment and cell phones. Many employees work near many computers and other devices like printers and copiers that are all producing electromagnetic frequencies. The employees are therefore being exposed in multiple ways.

Some employees show greater sensitivity to the electromagnetic radiation. Research would indicate that this may be an increasing problem for employers. If employees show increasing suffering from extreme stress, fatigue, attention issues, and depression, employers should take note and take precautions before they have really serious health issues to deal with and increasing health care costs.

Unfortunately, employees who experience the symptoms may not consciously connect their symptoms with their workplace, or the equipment at work. Upper management, HRD management, and safety engineers need to be educating themselves on this subject.

Government should also take note and provide protection through universal chips. While government agencies involved in research on EMF’s are still making up their minds about how to position their views on this subject, they could be advising other government officials to be taking precautions to prevent health issues among government workers in the meantime. The universal chips are balancing in themselves, so they might be helpful even if the government does not choose to change its standards.

Upper management of companies and government needs to be making budget decisions to put protective chips on all their equipment. It will save them money in the long run on health care costs, absenteeism, and reduction in productivity.

1. Reviewers for a comprehensive EMF risk assessment by the California Dept. of Health Services have determined that it is highly likely that EMF causes some forms of cancer, along with chronic neurological conditions like ALS, Alzheimer’s, Depression, etc.

2.Medical and epidemiological studies have found strong evidence that EMF exposure causes some forms of cancer, along with neurological conditions like ALS, Alzheimer’s Disease, Depression, etc.

3. One mechanism by which EMF causes these immune and neurological conditions is the fact that EMF has been found to cause significant increases in release of mercury into the body of those with amalgam dental fillings; and mercury has been documented to cause all of these immune and neurolgical conditions.

4.Amalgam dental fillings have been documented to be the largest source of mercury in most people who have amalgam fillings, with common mercury exposures more than Government health guidelines.

5. Most people get significant exposures to Electromagnetic Fields(EMF) from computer monitors, televisions, microwaves, other appliances, and power lines. These exposures have been found to significantly increase release and excretion of mercury in those with amalgam fillings.”

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.

“Changes in serotonin levels are known to be associated with depression. For example, lowered levels of this chemical in the brain have been linked to an increase in suicide frequency (45). Wolpaw examined the brain functions of monkeys exposed to 60 Hz magnetic fields. He measured the levels of neurohormones in the spinal fluid of monkeys thus exposed for three weeks. It was found that the levels of serotonin and dopamine were significantly depressed immediately following exposure, and that only the dopamine returned to normal levels several months after (46).”
