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.”

Shielding of AC Magnetic Field April 26, 2007

“It is natural to assume that some kind of shielding will be the best way to eliminate or reduce an AC magnetic field. Unfortunately, EMF shielding is generally the least effective, hardest, and most expensive way to handle a power-frequency AC magnetic field, if it works at all.”… “shielding does work easily and well for static or low-frequency electric fields – using any sheet of metal, metal screen, or metal fencing, provided the metal is grounded.”…”EMF shielding works well for both the electric and magnetic components of higher-frequency RF and microwave fields”….. “we can shield even higher frequency electromagnetic fields, still more easily. For instance, anything opaque will stop visible light (which is an electromagnetic radiation) or ultraviolet radiation. Even X-radiation can be shielded, though it begins to get harder again in that range, requiring lead or thick metal.”

“But we can’t shield power-frequency AC magnetic fields.”…Or rather, we may be able to do so, but the cost is typically prohibitive…“Magnetic shielding is a last resort. It never makes good sense (either for a homeowner with health concerns or for a business owner with shimmying-computer-picture problems) to start out by thinking of shielding”….”Almost every high-AC-magnetic-field problem in a house or business building can be solved more economically (often much more economically) in some other way – by eliminating the field’s source or by moving further away from it.”

“Across America, millions of honey bees are abandoning their hives and flying off to die, leaving beekeepers facing ruin and US agriculture under threat.”…” There could hardly be a more sedate and unruffled world than beekeeping, but the beekeepers of the United States have suddenly encountered affliction, calamity and death on a massive scale.”

 

“Across the country, from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific, honey bee colonies have started to die off, abruptly and decisively. Millions of bees are abandoning their hives and flying off to die (they cannot survive as a colony without the queen, who is always left behind).”

“Some beekeepers, especially those with big portable apiaries, or bee farms, which are used for large-scale pollination of fruit and vegetable crops, are facing commercial ruin – and there is a growing threat that America’s agriculture may be struck a mortal blow by the loss of the pollinators….The phenomenon is recent, dating back to autumn, when beekeepers along the east coast of the US started to notice the die-offs. It was given the name of fall dwindle disease, but now it has been renamed to reflect better its dramatic nature, and is known as colony collapse disorder.”

“It is swift in its effect. Over the course of a week the majority of the bees in an affected colony will flee the hive and disappear, going off to die elsewhere. The few remaining insects are then found to be enormously diseased – they have a “tremendous pathogen load”, the scientists say”….”The condition has been recorded in at least 24 states. It is having a major effect on the mobile apiaries which are transported across the US to pollinate large-scale crops, such as oranges in Florida or almonds in California. Some have lost up to 90 per cent of their bees.”

“A reliable estimate of the true extent of the problem will not be possible for another month or so, until winter comes to an end and the hibernating bee colonies in the northern American states wake up. But scientists are very worried, not least because, as there is no obvious cause for the disease as yet, there is no way of tackling it.”…”We are extremely alarmed,”….”It is one of the most alarming insect diseases ever to hit the US and it has the potential to devastate the US beekeeping industry. In some ways it may be to the insect world what foot-and-mouth disease was to livestock in England.”

“Most of the pollination for more than 90 commercial crops grown throughout the United States is provided byApis mellifera, the honey bee, and the value from the pollination to agricultural output in the country is estimated at $14.6bn (£8bn) annually. Growers rent about 1.5 million colonies each year to pollinate crops – a colony usually being the group of bees in a hive.”

“California’s almond crop, which is the biggest in the world, …now draws more than half of the mobile bee colonies in America at pollinating time – which is now. Some big commercial beekeeping operations …have had to import millions of bees from Australia to enable the almond trees to be pollinated.”

“Some of these mobile apiaries have been losing 60 or 70 per cent of their insects, or even more. “A honey producer in Pennsylvania doing local pollination… has gone from 1,000 bee colonies to fewer than eight,” …”The disease showed a completely new set of symptoms, “which does not seem to match anything in the literature”…”One was that the bees left the hive and flew away to die elsewhere, over about a week. Another was that the few bees left inside the hive were carrying “a tremendous number of pathogens” – virtually every known bee virus could be detected in the insects…and some bees were carrying five or six viruses at a time, as well as fungal infections. Because of this it was assumed that the bees’ immune systems were being suppressed in some way.”….”And another unusual symptom …which makes this very different, is that normally when a bee colony gets weak and its numbers are decreasing, other neighbouring bees will come and steal the resources – they will take away the honey and the pollen…..””Other insects like to take advantage too…But none of this is happening. These insects are not coming in….”there is something toxic in the colony itself which is repelling them.”

“The scientists involved in the working group were surveying the dead colonies but did not think the cause of the deaths was anything brought in by beekeepers, such as pesticides, “…”Another of the researchers studying the collapses, …said it was still difficult to gauge their full extent. It was possible that the bees were fleeing the colonies because they sensed they themselves were diseased or affected in some way”….” This behaviour has been recorded in other social insects, such as ants.”

“Tens of billions of bees are now involved in this “migratory” pollination. An operator might go from pollinating oranges in Florida, to apples in Pennsylvania, to blueberries in Maine, then back to Massachusetts to pollinate cranberries.”…”The business is so big that pollination is replacing honey-making as the main money earner at the top end of the beekeeping market”….”A typical bee colony, which might be anything from 15,000 to 30,000 bees, would be rented out to a fruit grower for about $135 – a price that is up from $55 only three years ago. To keep the bees’ energy up while they are pollinating, beekeepers feed them protein supplements and syrup carried around in large tanks.”…”It is in these migratory colonies where the biggest losses have been seen. But the stress theory is as much speculation as anything else. At the moment, the disappearance of America’s bees is as big a mystery as the disappearance of London’s sparrows.”

“I been noticing that when I work at my laptop for a while, my wrists and hands get hot from the heat coming off of it. The keyboard is directly over the CPU, after all. Worse than the heat, though, is the feeling of “vibration” that I’ve been feeling. It doesn’t just feel like my hands are getting warm – it feels like they’re being pumped full of some kind of energy. As I’ve become more attuned to it, it’s become more and more uncomfortable to me.””Last week, I had an appointment with a craniosacral therapist …the topic of working at a laptop came up. He pulled up a little device he has that measures electromagnetic radiation. When he holds it over things, it registers the radiation coming off of them. As he held it over his … ..[laptop] keyboard, the little indicator shot off the chart. As he held it over his external keyboard, it barely registered anything at all.”

“He showed me that you really don’t have to get too far back from the CPU for the EMFs to drop significantly – but when you type at a laptop, you really are working direclty in an intense field of radiation. Which explains what I’ve been feeling… and makes me rather nervous.”

“I’ve been meaning to invest in an…. external keyboard for a while now. No more excuses… I’m going to do it asap. It’ll be much better for my back, and will hopefully also elimiate this creepy hot buzzy feeling in my hands that I’ve got as I type this!”

Health Dangers From Wireless Laptops Danger from high frequency fields

“Under the motto of ‘increasing efficiency’, things are happening in many schools in an almost unnoticed and uncritical manner, which would have lead to animated discussions and actions in the past. Without informing or consulting staff, the federal state of Hessen has equipped around 100 schools with laptops in the name of ‘increased media competence’, ’new learning culture’ and ‘better education’. “…”By installing these new student workstations, the government and education authorities are introducing a new technology, against which there are strong concerns about potential health effects. According to the initiative ‘Schools and Future’, in which the government and local education authorities co-operate, ‘only WLAN is to be considered’, when it comes to laptops in schools. This WLAN technology (Wireless Local Area Networks) currently pushed by the authorities, consists of a transmitter installed in the classroom or school via which the students communicate with each other, with the periphery hardware and with the internet. In this case, each laptop is a sender and a receiver. …each workstation emits high frequency electromagnetic fields, which are generally acknowledged to have harmful effects on health. …the ‘large number of studies lead to the conclusion that living organisms react to this radiation’. Precautionary health protection is therefore urgently recommended, especially if we consider the experiences from the past, when the careless use of substances like wood preservatives, asbestos and CFCs lead to devastating health hazards and financial losses, also in schools.”

High frequency radiation

“With a network within one room it is still mostly an individual decision whether the students are linked with each other via cable or wireless. If the network extends through the entire school, the staff has no possibility to decide whether they agree to be exposed to the additional radiation or not. Similar to the situation in the waiting areas in airports and large train stations, they are exposed all working day long to the electromagnetic fields from the WLAN transmitters. Exposures within a building can vary to a large degree. Overlaps and reflections can create radiation hotspots which go completely unnoticed.”

The magazine Eco-Test [Translator’s note: an ecological equivalent of the UK Which magazine] tested workstations in the juristic library in Göttingen and found a peak value of 23,000 µWatt/m2. The current official guideline in Germany [and in the UK] is 10 W/m2. Without cable connections, a WLAN-installation must also be switched on at night and linked via radio link to the network, since it is then that the remote maintenance of the school transmitter with the docked-on laptops is done. In November 2002, Eco-Test magazine found in a large study that particularly laptops which are sending information and their WLAN cards emit considerable amounts of radiation. This radiation is often considerable higher than the recommended precautionary values and in hotspots even exceeds the official guidelines. Likewise, the Nova-Institute had previously found in its study regarding the installation of a WLAN network at the University of Bremen that persons working on notebook workstations had to ‘count on the precautionary values being exceeded’.

“In addition to the already existing massive interference from unnatural electromagnetic fields from sources such as mobile phones, DECT (cordless) phones, microwave ovens and computer screens, children, adolescents and staff are now exposed to additional health hazards which would be easily avoidable. It is possible without any quantitative or qualitative sacrifice, to use any laptop with a cable and hence to avoid the additional radiation load created by a WLAN installation. Only a cable is needed to link the laptop with the network, and the peripheral hardware such as a central printer can be connected via plug-ins as well.”

Almost all arguments go against WLAN!

“In addition to the precautionary aspect, it would be cheaper for schools and local education authorities to equip schools with wired networks, since they do not incur cost for the radio (wireless). Further arguments against WLAN technology are its susceptibility to exterior influences on data transmission, its slower operational speed when compared to wired networks, its lower capacity, its limited suitability for the use in exams and its higher rate of disruption in everyday use. Exterior pressures and industry interest however, seem to outweigh all the health, technical, financial and pedagogical objections. Doubts and objections are probably not least ignored in order to further the quick implementation and testing of this new technology which promises much profit in a large-scale experiment. In some school districts, the technology is even ‘trialled’ in primary schools. Children are degraded to become test subjects.”

“There are hardly any ways to legally raise objections: ‘WLAN equipment works within the legal guidelines’ is the official justification. However, the legal basis for this, the Electromagnetic Fields Ordinance of 1996 (!) set the guidelines only based on the thermal effects of this radiation. Yet, pulsed high frequency fields are proven to have effects at power flux densities much lower than the thermal threshold. They cause headaches, high blood pressure and lack of concentration and can lead to permanent health damage. The ECOLOG Institute in Hanover has produced a science review of more than 220 peer reviewed and published studies of the various health effects of electromagnetic fields [Translator’s note: commissioned by T-Mobile, Germany] and confirmed them on a scientific basis.”

“To protect public health it is therefore no longer sufficient to apply the old, inadequate guidelines, but to introduce a new precautionary guideline, which will take all influences on health known so far into account, and which would need to be categorically adhered to with regards to the assessment of all radiation exposure. Switzerland has already implemented this. There, the precautionary upper limit for power flux density is 0.1 W/m².This is 1/100 of the current guideline value in Germany [Translator’s note: and 1/100 of the current guideline value of the UK]. ”

Based on their comprehensive science review, the ECOLOG-Institute recommends

0.01 W//m² as the precautionary upper limit. Even at this value, studies found negative influences on brain function – EEC, capacity to react, blood-brain-barrier permeability.”

Eco-Test found exposures higher than these precautionary values in the vicinity of several laptops during their on-site studies. ”

Almost criminal assault

“The uncritical IT equipment of schools with transmitters and radiation emitting laptops does not take into account that the main users are children and adolescents who will be exposed for many hours every day.”

“In the UK, the Independent Expert Group commissioned by the government in 2000 came to the conclusion that children – due to their not yet fully developed nervous system and a circa 60% higher susceptibility to energetic radiation – were far more vulnerable than adults. Hence, there should be even stricter precautionary guidelines for children. To expose children knowingly to this danger is bordering criminal assault.”

“Also often ignored is the fact that it is not just one device emitting the pulsed high frequency radiation, but that there are usually 20 or more workstations per classroom. And this in an environment which is already riddled with further sources of unnatural radiation such as fluorescent lighting halogen lamps, mobile phones and transformers. It can therefore not be excluded that an overlap of these fields will cause the electromagnetic exposure at individual workstations to greatly exceed the precautionary guidelines. ”

“Admittedly, the electromagnetic radiation of a single laptop is below that of a mobile phone. The effect of electromagnetic radiation being accumulative, it will however, increase the intensity of ‘electro-smog’. The duration of use also plays an important role: it can be many hours per day, especially for IT teachers and students. Particular protection must be provided for electrosensitive people, for whom electromagnetic radiation triggers allergic reactions. They account for 3 – 5 % of the population.” …..”The summary of the arguments presented in this article should be sufficient to object to the WLAN project of the federal state government and the education authorities with a loud and clear ‘NO, no transmitters in schools and other public institutions!’ In addition to WLAN, this also includes wireless Bluetooth equipment, DECT and mobile phones. Cabled equipment results in higher data speeds and better results. Protection and precaution against health damage should be more important than the slightly ore convenient use of wireless equipment.”

“The Union for Education and Science and all the Union representatives on the federal state, town, council and school level must exert their influence to have policies in favour of wireless equipment revised and ensure that children and staff in schools are not knowingly exposed to additional health hazards from electromagnetic fields.”…” the precautionary principle should prevail and human health should be in the centre of interest. Further research results can be expected from the REFLEX study, which was commissioned by the EU and is currently being conducted in participating countries across Europe. It examines amongst other things the effect of electromagnetic radiation on human tissue. …”

“The issue of metallic taste and head sensations is widely documented and reported among people living near mobile communications masts. Metal chelation is obviously at issue here, so this is potentially more than just an inconvenience….there can be strong correlation between reported symptoms such as these and the installation and operation of masts.”….with so many people suffering from mobile transmitters, they will not be taken seriously….Common sense reading of existing research suggests that the dielectric conditions of a mouth containing mixed-ph aqueous solutions and mixed metals, will create normal electro-chemical responses and forces.”[!!!]”Further, there is strong research evidence of how specific biochemistry is affected by chronic low-level radiation….There is a simple test: remove the source for sufficient duration.”

“Supposing you could persuade your operator to do so (pigs might fly). First, done in a “blind test” way this would be considered to be a live-subject experiment with potential harmful effects, so the ethics committee would have to be involved and all those in proximity advised and their permission sought. (Ironic, given the circumstances.) But only removal-without-knowing would provide the results needed — and then it would still not be “proof”.”

“If you can, the alternative is to attenuate the signals by shielding and see if that makes a difference. If it does, forget the proof and enjoy the relief, because no-one is ever going to want to believe you anyway….those who suffer from mast radiation experience intense frustration by not being believed. Those who don’t, can’t understand why what people say is more important than lab study results, despite the poor understanding of what is going on. Above all of them is a political and corporate need to perpetuate the myth that there are no biological responses leading to adverse health effects. Can you imagine masts being removed because they hurt people? That would be an admission too far with wide-reaching consequences.”

 This is an important video concerning the affect of mercury which comes from fillings in the teeth as vapor as they are rubbed or scratched.

http://iaomt.org/videos/index.asp

Besides creating vapor in the mouth and tissues of the body, metals in the mouth can carry electrical charge…guess from where?
