“KOLKATA: Cellphone towers could soon have to steer clear of schools and hospitals in Kolkata as the state environment department perceives them as a potential health and safety hazard.”

“A list of guidelines issued by the department has decreed that installation of base station antennas on the premises of schools and hospitals “may be avoided because children and patients are more susceptible to electromagnetic fields.”The order”…..”mentions that antennas be avoided in narrow lanes to reduce the risks caused by an earthquake or wind-related disaster.”…..”the antennas should be at least 3 metre from the nearest building and should not directly face it, and that the lower end of the towers should be at least 3 metres above the ground or roof. Barbed-wire fences should keep antenna sites barred to the public, it has said. And access to towers, the government has suggested, be kept to the minimum, even for maintenance personnel.”

“Cellphone firms have asked to put up warning signs and ensure that these are “clearly visible and identifiable”. A warning sign has been prescribed at the entrance of such zone. Such signs should carry cautionary notes discouraging people — even maintenance personnel — from staying too long in the zone. The environment department has suggested that the sign boards may contain the following text: Danger! RF radiation, Do not enter!

“Operators and maintenance personnel…should be protected from electromagnetic radiation, the state says. It has advised cellphone firms to educate personnel on the possible hazards from these devices.”

“Cellphone service providers were guarded in their response”….”researchers felt it was still too early to reach a conclusion ….You need to study an entire generation to come to a definite conclusion. But precautions are always welcome”…”There were complaints from several districts. Many schools said mobile towers were being erected on their roofs and in nearby areas….”

A study by an award-winning cancer expert shows that cell phone use could kill more people than smoking, it is reported.“According to the U.K.’s Independent newspaper, the study”….”shows that there is a growing body of evidence that using handsets for 10 years or more can double the risk of brain cancer.”

“…one of the world’s top neurosurgeons — based his assessment on the fact that three billion people now use the phones worldwide. That is three times higher than people who smoke. Smoking kills some five million globally each year.”

“He warned that people should avoid using handsets whenever possible and called on the phone industry to make them safer. France and Germany have already warned against the use of mobile phones, especially by children, it is reported.”

“The study is said to be the most damning indictment of cell phone use. According to the Independent, cancers take at least 10 years to develop, which has influenced earlier cancer studies showing relative safety when using cell phones.”

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.

Live Blood Analysis

KEEP YOUR VISION

40 studies and proof at http://www.bioenergeticsinstitute.com

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:

“doctor involved in a recent international study that has found a link between cellular phones and cancer says she believes cell-phone use should be limited among children”….. “the study, which was conducted in 16 countries, says standards should be reassessed and tightened to prevent radiation from cell phones, and new technology should be developed to lessen radiation…current regulations do not relate to cancer as caused by radiation but to the health risks posed by the instrument heating up.”

“The time is past when it could be said that this technology does not cause damage; apparently it damages health,” …”Cell phones are already here, they have advantages and now we have to learn how to use them wisely.” …”The study…found a clear link between the use of cell phones and the development of cancerous and benign tumors in the saliva glands”….”The Israeli study examined all 460 patients who were diagnosed with benign and cancerous tumors of the saliva glands between 2001 and 2003. The patients were compared to a control group of 1,266 people in Israel who did not have tumors. All the participants filled out detailed questionnaires” ……”no increased risk of cancer was noted among the research group as a whole, comprised of patients who used cell phones to various extents. However, upon examining specific groups, they found that for those who tended to hold the phone on one side and who used the phone frequently or for prolonged periods, the risk of saliva-gland cancer increased by 50 to 58 percent compared to people who did not use a cell phone regularly. According to the research, the more this group used the cell phone, the greater their chance of contracting the disease.”

“The study also found a heightened risk among people who used their cell phone frequently and for prolonged periods in rural areas where there are relatively few antennas; the radiation emitted by the phone is higher is higher in these areas.”

“A number of studies in recent years indicate a rise in the risk of tumors in the auditory nerve, the brain and the saliva glands for long-time cell-phone users. However the present study shows the correlation more clearly. “It may be because in Israel we had a relatively large group of patients and because these were heavy users. In all the comparisons we made, use of cell phones was found to be much greater than the rest of the countries.”……”the findings underscored the argument that the “principle of preventive caution” should be applied to the use of cell phones. …”to test the correlation between cell-phone use and a disease that usually appears years after the exposure, many years might pass before a connection is securely proven between the phones and cancer or other health risks.”

If you’re unlucky enough to be sitting next to certain computer printers in your office, you may as well be sitting next to a cigarette smoker, according to new research….. 

 

toxic particulate matter levels were five times higher inside a non-smoking office building on a workday than they were outside near a freeway. … what was causing this toxic indoor air. ……laser printers. The researchers studied more than 50 such printers and found that half of them emitted tiny particles of toner-like material into the air, in concentrations ranging from low to high….Breathing in these tiny particles has been linked to respiratory illness, heart disease, lung disease and cancer……all used toner instead of ink….”Even very small concentrations can be related to health hazards,” Your risk of exposure, … depends largely on the office building’s ventilation system.

Are You Surrounded by Electronic Smog?

Laser printers are not the only potential risk in your work environment. The electrical fields given off by electronic equipment, including computers, lamps, wiring and more, may also impact your health, according to research ….dubbed “electro-pollution,” charge tiny particles in the air including viruses, bacteria, allergens and more. 

When you breathe in these particles, the electrical charge makes them adhere to the tissue in your lungs and respiratory tract, which can cause infection. Asthma, the flu and other respiratory illnesses can then result.

You can reduce your risk, the researcher said, by making sure laptop computers are “earthed” and unplugging electrical equipment when it’s not being used.

The air isn’t the only thing to worry about in your office. Your computer keyboard is also potentially hazardous…. you may be transferring two or more types of bacteria onto your fingertips while you type. …researchers found that every computer keyboard was contaminated with two or more microorganisms…the bacteria that was found was the type that could be detrimental to hospital patients:

·         All keyboards tested positive for a staph bacterium called coagulase-negative staphylococci. This is one of the most common causes of bloodstream infections among those hospitalized.

·         80 percent of keyboards contained diphtheroids. This bacteria represents a significant infection risk for those whose immune systems are weak, such as cancer and AIDS patients.

Phones, desks and your computer’s mouse may also be potential sources of bacteria.

Growing research reveals that electromagnetic emissions from cell phones, computers and other modern-day gadgets can hinder the body’s weight-regulating mechanisms…..” Researchers worldwide are discovering an unwanted side effect of modern-day conveniences like cell phones, computers, microwaves, TVs, power lines and wireless network: The electromagnetic fields (EMFs) they emit are creating an “electromagnetic smog” called electropollution that’s making women sick—and fat!

“Despite the fact that electropollution has been largely ignored in the United States, research indicates that roughly 35 percent of people in developed countries suffer from a chronic sensitivity to electromagnetic waves, which causes unwanted health effects like fat retention, extreme fatigue, insomnia and depression.”

“The concern is so strong that laws are being put into place in several European countries to limit or ban the use of cell phones among children under age 16 and pregnant women. “For years we’ve heard the ongoing debate about whether or not EMFs raise cancer risk,” … “Though the jury is still out on that, experts worldwide agree that EMFs can damage health in other ways.”

How electropollution hurts

Each of our body’s cells contain special structures called microtubules that are able to sense invisible frequencies like EMFs. “These receptors interpret EMFs from sources like cell phones, wireless towers and even hair dryers as something foreign and dangerous, triggering cell membranes to instantly go into a protective ‘lockdown mode’,” …”What’s more, the constant bombardment from EMFs that most women in this country experience means that the cells stay blocked off indefinitely. “This extended lockdown hinders the vital cell-to-cell communication that underlies all of the body’s functions, including maintaining energy and natural slimming mechanisms like detoxing, balancing blood sugar and regulating appetite,” …”The result: chronic tiredness and stubborn extra weight.”

THE LITTLE CHIP THAT KEEPS YOU SAFE FROM CELL-PHONE AND COMPUTER EMFS

“International research has established that cell phones emit radiation that directly impacts the brain and triggers headaches, tiredness, swelling and more. And even a short call can lead to ill effects: Scientists have found that it takes the body approximately 30 minutes to recover from the harmful effects of being exposed to cell-phone EMFs for just 5 minutes….scientists have developed special chips that reduce the effects of EMF emissions by creating positive frequencies that counteract, or harmonize with, the negative frequencies.

http://mybiopro.com/ericlaurence

THREE MORE EASY EMP-PROTECTIVE STATEGIES

“1. Step away from the microwave—Microwave ovens are a major source of electropollution, but simply leaving the kitchen when nuking greatly cuts exposure.

2. Keep your phone at least 5 feet from the bed—Cordless phones are a source of EMFs as well, and nighttime exposure can really add up. Also key: Be sure the computer in your bedroom is turned off before you go to be and that any bedroom TV is at least 10 feet away from your bed.

3. Trade in that electric blanket for a comforter—Electric blankets are a well-documented EMF source—one that most experts recommend avoiding altogether.”

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!

Welcome to our NEW WORLD!!"

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.”
