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.

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:

(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]…..”

“Today the incidence of autism in the United States is 1 in 150 children, according to published CDC reports, a horrific increase from the end of the 1970s, when the ratio of autism in our society was 1 in 10,000, before the cell phone, wireless and similar technologies were introduced into the environment that produce radio waves”….”findings from more than five years of research on clients with autism, and other membrane sensitivity disorders”…”point to electromagnetic radiation stress, which increases with the proliferation of cell phone and wireless use, as one of the potentially major root causes of the explosion of autistic cases in the past two decades.”

“…Since we know that electrical currents at microvolt levels in the body are of vital importance, it makes a world of sense to research the potential of electromagnetic pollution in the etiology of disease. There is no doubt that we are seeing a severe epidemic rise of autism in children and the widespread use of electronics and wireless devices may well be a factor that has been ignored”…

…[There is a] “potentially groundbreaking link between electromagnetic pollution and the crippling of cellular detoxification. This may play a central role in autism as well as chronic illness of all types in all ages,”…

“…This toxic pollution entering the body is created from transmitting data as information carrying radio waves….”electromagnetic radiation as a cohort effect with heavy metals as a strong component of the etiology of autism.”

“…with more cell phone towers being erected, more cell phones in use globally and more WiFi technology utilized, the risk for autism continues to rise…..”The epidemiologic curve of autism parallels too closely with the increase usage of wireless devices ….”

Grave Cell Phone Dangers Revealed

“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.”

“Mesmerized by magical gadgets, we have yet to count the costs of miniature radio transmitters that are transforming Marconi’s invention into new possibilities for portable personal pollution. As entire nations reach for pocket communicators, the explosively emergent $40 billion a year cell phone industry is poised to deliver a “Wireless Revolution” which, over the next five years, is expected to double the one-billion people connected by telephone lines over the past century.”

“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. Blake Levitt, author of Electromagnetic Fields, says that when it comes to cellphones, “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.”
….”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.”….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.” “Safety Code 6″ looks only at microwaves burning skin.” “Basically, Health Canada claims if it can’t cook you, it can’t hurt you,” says Walter McGinnis. “It’s like saying cigarettes aren’t dangerous unless they burn you.”

“One of a handful of licensed electricians who understand electromagnetic fields well enough to eliminate them from household wiring, McGinnis has been testing EMFs and collaborating with fellow testers and researchers for nearly a decade. In Victoria, where he has helped residents defeat six cellphone towers, there was dancing in the streets after Microcell Connexions withdrew its application to erect a microwave transmission tower against the Wishart Elementary School fence in the spring of 1998. Microcell spokesman Colin McCrae points out that emissions from the company’s towers carry about the same energy as a 50-watt lightbulb – well within federal guidelines.”

“This is hardly reassuring, retorts the former president of the Wisehart parents advisory council. Tania Berenuik observes that Health Canada “also told us thalidomide, asbestos and the blood supply were safe.” Carrying similar risks of long-term lethality, and strangely just as legal, cellphone addiction mirrors the prestigious early allure of smoking – as well as an immensely profitable industry’s steadfast denial of risk and responsibility. As poisonous as cigarette smoke and even harder to corral, the cellphone’s “second-hand” microwave and to bystanders – particularly children riding in cars that transmit amplified cellphone signals through their steel structure. Reporting the conclusions of a 12-person British study team, scientist 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.”

“Roger Coghill became a long-standing advocate for health warnings to be affixed to cell phones after this biologist found that cellphone transmissions damage the ability of white blood cells to ward off infectious disease by disrupting the immune system’s electromagnetic communications. Dr. Neil Cherry has measured accelerated aging, increased cell death and cancers caused by radio frequency microwaves from cellphones and their relay towers. With the brain’s electro-chemical communications repeatedly zapped by lightning-like cellphone pulses, this 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.” The biophysicist from Lincoln University in Christ Church, New Zealand has also found that 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.”

“In 1995, Cell phone sales in North America exceeded the birth rate. Hired by the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association to condone cellphones, public health scientist George Carlo found that rare tumors on the outside of the brain are more than doubled among cell phone callers – particularly on the right side of the head where phones are usually held. Carlo told ABC’s “20/20” that cell phone causes genetic damage that leads to cancer. Warning of “the potential for a global health disaster,” ABC recommended “prudent avoidance” of cellphones after finding that every cellphone they lab-tested exceeded the Federal Communication Commission’s standards for EMF absorption rates. EMF researcher Dave Ashton cautioned 20/20 viewers that because cellphones constantly search for the nearest repeating tower, “long-term damage comes from cell phones in the stand-by mode.” Cell phone “shields” and headsets “cannot adequately address these problems,” Ashton added.”

“Dr. Carlo later told London’s Express newspaper that cellphones cause genetic damage following a dose-response curve. That is, the more a person uses a cell phone, the more cellular destruction and health risks they incur. Cell phone-confused cells can go crazy, Carlo cautioned. Experiments on captive animals show that this cumulative DNA damage is passed on to succeeding generations.”

“Addicted as we are to a culture of convenience, we forget how inconvenient it is to contract cancer. An Adelaide Hospital study confirmed Carlo’s conclusions after finding 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.”

“Ready or Not As magazine-size “cellular” relay antennas hidden in church steeples and rooflines keep popping up just about everywhere, more and more communities are declaring their airspace a “No Fry Zone”. But in Canada, where cell phone towers come under federal jurisdiction, municipalities are only “advisers’ to a process in which no permits are required to erect transmitter towers deemed necessary for “national security.” Cellphones do save a lot of lives. FCC Chairman William Kennard reports that every day more than 98,000 people make 911 calls from wireless cell phones.”

“Many more lives are involuntarily imperiled by non-emergency calls. Pat Irwin was working in a Colwood health food store when she noticed a truck unloading metal framework. The next morning, a new cellphone tower was ready to add its emissions to another BC Tel tower already operating down the street. There had been no announcement, no public hearings – just a quiet notification to the municipality that a tower was going up, literally overnight.”

“The intruder radiated for a month when Irwin felt her immunity dropping. She wondered if other changes in her energy and menstrual cycle were “not from the moon or something that I ate.”

“Irwin also seemed more irritable after her central nervous switchboard began receiving round-the-clock cellphone calls. With cellular relay towers in Kansas and Oklahoma being shut down because they interfered with passing aircraft, Irwin sensed how the same transmissions plucked her own electrical circuitry, inflicting a “chronic edginess” that “twangs human nerves.” Sleep disorders, she learned, are common among people exposed to high levels of electromagnetic pollution.”

“After several other women in the same business centre reported similar symptoms, Irwin quit her job. “I saw it as something that was there to stay and I’d be daily exposed to it over a long period of time,” she told Alive. “All this stuff is what we’re playing with on a daily basis, and we don’t know the long-term health effects.”

“Implying recognized hazard, cell phone companies such as B.C.’s FIDO insist that the new digital phones operating at 1/50 the power of older analog models are safer. But 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.”

“Attempting to explain a 25% increase in asthma and a 5% increase in asthma-related death rates throughout rapidly “mobilizing” metropolitan Sydney, Franch found that 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.”

“Katharina Gustavss, a certified Building Biology consultant with 25 years experience, explains that CDMA’s 217 Hz spikes are very close to the frequencies of human cell membranes. Gustavss accompanied a Microcell technician to the Colwood microwave relay tower Irwin and others had complained about. When he waved a spectrum analyzer, Gustavss checked the display and saw “pretty scary” energy spikes. “What’s that?” she asked the tech. “I’ve never seen that before,” he told her. It turned out that this cellphone tower tester only set his meter to an averaging mode. Switching to “real time” froze the readings at “scary” maximum output levels.”

“How dangerous are cell phones? “The risk is extremely high,” declares Dr. Cherry. “There are 66 epidemiological studies showing that electromagnetic radiation across the spectrum increaseS brain tumors in human populations. Two of those studies are for particular brain tumors from cell phones.”

“Cherry says that 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. Professor Leif Salford, the neurologist who carried out the research for this finding, informed the Daily Mail: “It seems that molecules such as proteins and toxins can pass out of the blood, while the phone is switched on, and enter the brain. We need to bear in mind diseases such as MS and Alzheimer’s which are linked to proteins being found in the brain.”

“Dancing with the Telecomonster 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,” says Florida cellphone tower opponent Joe Chwick. “You wouldn’t think of sticking your head in the oven, but there is no hesitation to putting the cell phone to your ear.”

“Melatonin (N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine), the chief secretory product of the pineal gland in the brain, is well known for its functional versatility. In hundreds of investigations, melatonin has been documented as a direct free radical scavenger and an indirect antioxidant, as well as an important immunomodulatory agent. The radical scavenging ability of melatonin is believed to work via electron donation to detoxify a variety of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, including the highly toxic hydroxyl radical. It has long been recognized that the damaging effects of ionizing radiation are brought about by both direct and indirect mechanisms. The direct action produces disruption of sensitive molecules in the cells, whereas the indirect effects ( approximately 70%) result from its interaction with water molecules, which results in the production of highly reactive free radicals such as *OH, *H, and e(aq)- and their subsequent action on subcellular structures. The hydroxyl radical scavenging ability of melatonin was used as a rationale to determine its radioprotective efficiency. Indeed, the results from many in vitro and in vivo investigations have confirmed that melatonin protects mammalian cells from the toxic effects of ionizing radiation. Furthermore, several clinical reports indicate that melatonin administration, either alone or in combination with traditional radiotherapy, results in a favorable efficacy:toxicity ratio during the treatment of human cancers. This article reviews the literature from laboratory investigations that document the ability of melatonin to scavenge a variety of free radicals (including the hydroxyl radical induced by ionizing radiation) and summarizes the evidence that should be used to design larger translational research-based clinical trials using melatonin as a radioprotector and also in cancer radiotherapy. The potential use of melatonin for protecting individuals from radiation terrorism is also considered.”

“Mobile telephones, television and radio transmitters and radar produce RF fields. These fields are used to transmit information over long distances and form the basis of telecommunications as well as radio and television broadcasting all over the world. Microwaves are RF fields at high frequencies in the GHz range. In microwaves ovens, we use them to quickly heat food.””At radio frequencies, electric and magnetic fields are closely interrelated and we typically measure their levels as power densities in watts per square metre (W/m2).”

“Key points:

  • The electromagnetic spectrum encompasses both natural and human-made sources of electromagnetic fields.
  • Frequency and wavelength characterise an electromagnetic field. In an electromagnetic wave, these two characteristics are directly related to each other: the higher the frequency the shorter the wavelength.
  • Ionizing radiation such as X-ray and gamma-rays consists of photons which carry sufficient energy to break molecular bonds. Photons of electromagnetic waves at power and radio frequencies have much lower energy that do not have this ability.
  • Electric fields exist whenever charge is present and are measured in volts per metre (V/m). Magnetic fields arise from current flow. Their flux densities are measured in microtesla (µT) or millitesla (mT).
  • At radio and microwave frequencies, electric and magnetic fields are considered together as the two components of an electromagnetic wave. Power density, measured in watts per square metre (W/m2), describes the intensity of these fields.
  • Low frequency and high frequency electromagnetic waves affect the human body in different ways.
  • Electrical power supplies and appliances are the most common sources of low frequency electric and magnetic fields in our living environment. Everyday sources of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields are telecommunications, broadcasting antennas and microwave ovens.”

Do you use a machine to help you sleep?

You may be exposing yourself to increased pulsed radiation.

“…any machine that is operational will be putting forth a magnetic field. Considering the fact that both the cpap and bipap are strictly to insure respiration makes them a higher priority for health than the EMFs. Thus the only consideration is to convert the MF to a less invasive form. There are several devices that can be applied to these and any other electrical devices to decrease the effects of the EMFs. If that suggestion does not fall completely within your level of acceptability you might try to convince the manufacturers to come with a longer hose in order to create a greater distance from the actual pump.”

KILLER ON THE ROOF: Cancer fears over phone masts

“SIX neighbours from the same floor of a block of flats have all been hit by cancer after two phone masts were installed on the building now dubbed The Tower of Doom. Two people died after the disease struck in six out of just eight homes on the top storey. Tenant Mike Cole, 70, said: “It’s like living on Death Row. You’re constantly worrying who’s going to be next.”

….”campaigners say the shock statistic, uncovered by the News of the World, flies in the face of government guidelines which maintain no link has yet been proved between mobile masts and sickness. Our investigation has also revealed local authorities around the country are raking in cash from mobile networks by allowing them to site masts on tower blocks, and council buildings.”

“The cancer rate on the fifth floor of Berkeley House in Bristol is TEN TIMES that of the rest of the UK.Cancer Research say two per cent of people suffer from the disease. Yet on that floor alone it affects nearly 20 PER CENT. All the cases have occurred since the Vodafone and Orange masts were put up 10 years ago…and two women neighbours have already fallen victim to the killer on the roof….

Schools

Other residents are worried about the effect on children. There are three schools within 250 yards of the flats…Last year the Government’s chief advisor on mobile phone safety Sir William Stewart, the head of the National Radiological Protection Board, called for a ban on erecting masts near schools. Sir William – who bans his own grandchildren from using mobile phones unless it’s an emergency – said: “I don’t think we can put our hands on our hearts and say mobiles are safe. If there are risks, and we think there may be, the people who will be most affected are children. The younger the child, the greater the danger….

…” in August the International Journal of Cancer Prevention published a report claiming people’s risk of contracting cancer was FOUR TIMES greater if they live near a mast…. ”

NURSERY LINK TO TINY TOT VICTIMS

“THREE children taught at a nursery school next to a mast developed leukaemia. And a further three living nearby also suffered the disease.”….  children-with their thinner skulls and developing brains-are most at risk from phone mast radiation. And Health Protection Agency chairman Sir William Stewart, has called for a ban on masts near schools “as a precautionary measure”.

Should Cell Masts Be Allowed Near Schools or Homes? December 15, 2006

A cancer expert has warned that a mobile phone mast that has contributed to 27 deaths and illnesses in 13 years was evidence to show masts should not be built near homes or schools.”

”Norwich North MP Ian Gibson has been a supporter of the Evening News Put Masts On Hold campaign, which calls for an end to masts being installed near homes and schools until there is conclusive proof that they pose no health risk.”

”Mr Gibson said it was essential that more research was carried out into the safety implications of such equipment after reports in national newspapers told of two estates where families said masts caused ill health. In Shooters Hill, Stoke-on-Trent, there have been seven deaths and 20 illnesses since phone giant Orange put up a mast in 1993.”

”Four people died of brain haemorrhages within three years of each other, while three others died from cancer. Another newspaper reported on a block of flats in Bristol where the cancer rate is 10 times that of the rest of the UK.”

“Orange said its masts were safe and cited a factsheet from the World Health Organisation which said there was no adverse or long-term health effects from that kind of low-level frequency.”

”The cases have parallels with a road in the city where eight people in one road near a mast had cancer. “

”Families living in Furze Road, Thorpe St Andrew, believed their cancers had been caused by a huge mobile phone base station which towers over their homes.”

’Betty Chaplin, 80, who moved into Furze Road near the St Williams Way mast in 1998 and within months developed cancer in her small intestine which required an operation, said there should be more research done into the correlation.”

“I think there must be a link,” she said. “As soon as I moved into this house I developed bowel cancer but I was operated on and was alright.”

Last year the Government’s chief advisor on mobile phone safety Sir William Stewart called for a precautionary ban on putting masts near schools and homes.”

”Dr Gibson said: “These latest cases seem to confirm that Sir William Stewart’s precautionary approach is the right one.”

”Are you fighting a mobile phone mast application where you live? Or do you think a mobile phone mast has made you ill? Call Peter Walsh on 01603 772439 or e-mail peter.walsh @archant.co.uk”
