Electromagnetic Fields and Health Statement

Electromagnetic Fields and Health Statement on March 23 2009

Darwinian evolution occurred in the presence of natural electromagnetic fields.0420-bees

Magnetoreception is one of the biological mechanisms used by migrating birds and bees for navigation. No scientist can currently be positively certain that the coverage of our European territories by multiple artificial electromagnetic fields does not have, and will not have, any major impact on the behaviour and conservation of fauna.

The effects of electromagnetic fields on our health have been established through clinical observation
of a great number of toxicological and biological investigations, and through some epidemiological studies. There is, to this day in Europe, a growing number of “electrohypersensitive” patients, who have developed intolerance to electromagnetic fields.

Although the biological mechanisms of electrosensitivity remain unknown, it is legally acknowledged as a handicap in Sweden. We, physicians, acting in accordance with the Hippocratic Oath, we, researchers, acting in the name of scientific truth, we all, doctors and researchers from the different States of the European Union, hereby state in full independence of judgement, that a growing number of patients are to be found who have become intolerant to electromagnetic fields, and that this intolerance is causing them serious prejudice in terms of health, professional and family life; that the possibility of their developing a neurodegenerative disease, or even some form of cancer, cannot be ruled out, and that this prejudice therefore ought to be acknowledged and compensated for by the social security systems of the different member States of the European community.

We hereby warn governments,
that in view of our present knowledge, it is not to be ruled out that after a sufficient period of exposure, this intolerance might also affect children and therefore cause a major public health problem in years to come in all the countries making an unrestricted use of electromagnetic field based technologies.

Although our scientific knowledge remains incomplete, and some issues have actually given rise to controversy, the international scientific community unanimously acknowledges a potentially serious hazard on public health, urgently requiring the application of the precautionary principle. Going along with certain lobbies and jeopardizing health in the name of short term economical and financial interests can only cause harm to all our fellow citizens.

Residents of the View Park/Windsor Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles won an important victory at the Los Angeles Regional Planning Commission on February 18 (see article from LA Daily News below). While T-Mobile can still appeal to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors the 3-2 vote to deny a permit for a wireless facility proposed for the rooftop garage on a building hosting a CVS pharmacy, the victory is particularly significant because it marks the debut of a regional Southern California coalition, Residents Engaged Against Cell Towers (REACT), who successfully mobilized for the Feb. 18 hearing.microwave-tower-golden-sky

Organizations involved in this regional coalition include residents from Los Angeles, San Diego, Glendale, Pasadena, Tarzana, Burbank, Mar Vista, Altadena, Baldwin Hills Estates, Sherman Oaks, Ladera Heights, Scripps Ranch, Hacienda Heights, Oceanside, Carlsbad, Mission Viejo, Irvine, Rancho Santa Fe, and Escondido.

Along with the Coalition to Regulate Antennae Siting ( http://www.safeantenna.org ) in New York City, Southern California is one of the current hotbeds of activity on this issue working to take the fight to the national level.

This story may make you consider giving up milk altogether. The story mentions ‘using clean electrical energy from the grid’, well good luck with that far fetched idea! There would also be a big question mark about the cleanliness of the energy as it leaves the site, and a very good chance that dangerous high frequency pollution will be caused around the farm. We know that microwaving food damages the quality and goodness, what will it do to the milk?

Wi-Fi in School

I had a conversation with the parent representative to the French school board (CSF) today – a fellow parent at my children’s school – she told me that the CSF was going to ask Health Canada and the BC Worker’s Compensation Board to do some of it’s own research on EMR from Wi -Fi. We had an exchange – she said that it was not the CSF’s job to set safety limits. Below is my response to an email she sent out earlier this evening. By the way, she is a doctor.

To:
XXXXXXXXX, I do appreciate your proactive activity around this. With respect to your comment this afternoon, you are absolutely correct that it is not CSF’s job to establish safety limits, but it should be its first priority to ensure the safety of all of the children in its care. And ANY doubt should be decided for the benefit of the students. Health Canada has NEVER effectively responded to an emerging health threat – tobacco? Asbestos?.

If you watched the BBC Panorama show (Wi -Fi: A Warning Signal), you would have heard Sir William Stewart, U.K.’s top scientist saying the the WHO (OSM) is wrong – that the whole basis of their safety limits are inadequate to protect the population, especially our children. Same for the German government who has warned all citizens not to use Wi -Fi. Is that not telling? Or Gerd Oberfeld and Henry Lai, who are world reknowned for their research into electromagnetic radiation and biological effects – they both said they would pull their children out of any school that had Wi-Fi. And Olle Johansson of the Karolinska institute in Sweden has found biological effects at radiation levels lower than Wi -Fi. If you have not watched it, here is the link to the show:
http://www.mastsanity.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=132&Itemid=113

In 2002, Lloyds of London and the entire insurance industry excluded health effects from electromagnetic radiation from all liability policies for the wireless industry. This was in response to the work that Dr. George Carlo did with the Wireless Telecommunications Research program from 1993 to 1999 (300 scientists, 28.5 million dollars). Interestingly, the insurance industry has known about and responded to emerging health threats in exactly this manner. They did exactly the same thing for the tobacco industry while tobacco execs continued to say there were no health effects from smoking.

We do not need any more short term epidemiological studies. A two or three year study will not answer the question of what may or will happen after ten or fifteen years – the time it takes for cancerous tumours to present. We now know with certainty, that radiation from Wi-Fi, cellular and cordless home phones cause leakage in the blood brain barrier, breakage of DNA, interruption of intra-cellular communication, and changes in cognitive function (the Stewart Report, 2000).

This is not a “maybe, we need more data” situation. If you don’t believe me, please look at the truly “independent” double blind, peer reviewed research (in other words, not funded by the wireless industry).

We MUST apply the precautionary principle because there is so much evidence (not doubt, evidence). In my opinion, anything less is absolutely reckless.
Respectfully,
Carl Katz

Cancer Causes Control. 2009 Feb 18. [Epub ahead of print]
Maternal occupational exposure to extremely low frequency magnetic fields and the risk of brain cancer in the offspring. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19224378 Li P, McLaughlin J, Infante-Rivard C. Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health, Faculty of Medicine, McGill University, 1110 Pine Avenue West, Montreal, QC, H3A 1A3, Canada.

OBJECTIVES: To examine the contribution of maternal occupational exposure to extremely low frequency magnetic fields (ELF-MF) shortly before and during
pregnancy on the incidence of childhood brain tumors.

METHODS: A total of 548 incident cases and 760 healthy controls recruited between 1980 and 2002 from two Canadian provinces (Quebec and Ontario) were
included in this study, and their mothers were interviewed. Quantitative occupational ELF-MF exposure in microTesla units was estimated using individual exposure estimations or a job exposure matrix. We used three metrics to analyze exposure: cumulative, average, and maximum level attained.

RESULTS: Using the average exposure metric measured before conception, an increased risk was observed for astroglial tumors (OR = 1.5, 95% CI = 1.0-2.4).

During the entire pregnancy period, a significantly increased risk was observed for astroglial tumors as well as for all childhood brain tumors with the average metric
(OR = 1.6, 95% CI = 1.1-2.5 and OR = 1.5, 95% CI = 1.1-2.2, respectively). Based on job titles, a twofold risk increase was observed for astroglial tumors (OR = 2.3, 95% CI = 0.8-6.3) and for all childhood brain tumors (OR = 2.3, 95% CI = 1.0-5.4) among sewing machine operators.

CONCLUSIONS: Results are suggestive of a possible association between
maternal occupational ELF-MF exposure and certain brain tumors in their offspring. PMID: 19224378

Global TV 16:9 news on CFLs & Dirty Electricity

Dirty Energy and Compact Florescent Bulbs / Lights

“this is reading 580 roughly, so once again we have a really bad bulb”

What is she doing? Well this is Dr. Magda Havas, she’s testing all sorts of bulbs for dirty electricity.

Dirty what?

Dirty electricity.

An expert in her field, basically she measures power quality and radio frequencies that different bulbs give off.

“you see that that has jumped up over 400, so just one light bulb can give very high readings, and there’s no way of knowing that this is worse than the others by just by looking at the package”

She says on her meter for a bulb to be considered clean – it should read less than 50.

“so one light bulb gives 500 can you imagine just four of them, that would put them over to 2000, can I turn it off now?”

a lot of people are responding negatively to these light bulbs. They get headaches; they get other body aches and pains. Some of them have difficulty sleeping they’re tired, some have mood disorders”

All this is controversial – scientists do not agree if people can suffer from what’s called electromagnetic hype sensitivity. Basically getting sick from the electronic devices we use – and the stuff they give off.

But what about the people we met who say they’re suffering – like Larry Newman.

“I was blindsided by it” here’s the thing about Larry Newman – he’s Doctor Newman – a neurologist. And that migraine headache hit him like a truck.

“I can tell you from my experience there’s something about those bulbs that triggered my headaches”

((green bulbs)) at his new York clinic – he’s seeing more and more patients complaining about the compact florescent light bulbs.

“these new light bulbs doc I swear they’re giving me headaches” He knows some will dismiss what he’s saying – they’ll say there’s no scientific evidence linking the bulbs to headaches.

“I can tell you from other patients they definitely see a relationship to exposure to that light bulbs and developing a headache”

One of those patients is Amanda Gabbard.

“right here my forehead feels very warm. and I feel a dull pain behind my eyes, a little bit of dizziness and fatigue” In her home you’ll only find old fashioned incandescents. She got rid of the CFL’s.

“very shocking I am very confused by it. I don’t really understand it, I just know I have to get away from them. so, it’s kind of mind boggling I mean it’s just a light bulb what can it really do, isn’t it supposed to be this great thing … everyone’s doing it” And she can’t escape it, when she took a trip to Italy and stayed in his hotel – her room was loaded with the curly bulbs – instantly she knew.

“and I thought oh no I came all the way to Europe to have this wonderful vacation and it’s going to be ruined”

” we had to take them out immediately “

Dr. Christine Lay – a neurologist and headache expert says people like Amanda prove it is happening – and science needs to catch up.

“I think a lot of times things are introduced and then it’s the people that will being to say, no wait a minute something’s going on here, something’s not right here. So we hope as more people speak up, more scientists will begin to become involved”

Health Canada says ‘yes’ its true CFL’s give off radio frequencies but claim the levels are safe and thousands of times below limits that have been recommended. The lighting companies say their bulbs meet industry standards and are safe. Again, no one would talk to us on camera.

“And Health Canada has a serious responsibility. And they’re not living up to that responsibility. They’re right now just trying to deny that there is a problem without recognizing what they should be doing to actually investigate it rather than just deny it blindly”

Those who suffer say their health problems are real – and there more to it than just headaches

“they were all throughout my house almost every room had a bulb in it” Kevin Byrne says his pain was like having arthritis – so convinced dirty electricity is, well, dirty, he quit his job to test other people’s homes for what he calls electrical pollution – starting with the curly bulbs.

You get closer to the bulb and you can see the significant electrical fields then compared to fluorescent now electricity is going through you body and into ground.

“I know there are a lot of people who are having adverse reaction to them headaches, fatigues, and the chronic pain that I felt”

Magda has heard it all before…the doubts…questioning whether they’re really sick.

“well there’s definitely something there., if you have them in your home, simply turn them off for a few days and find out if your symptoms disappear”

Ok let’s review UV, headaches, skin problems, and of course mercury. The old inefficient light bulbs are being banned in 2012. Manufactures are scrambling to create new ones – the best choice for the future may be these – LED’s – light emitting diodes – no mercury. No health concerns. And WAY more efficient than the curly bulbs. But right now it’s compact fluorescents.

Its reading 27 it doesn’t contribute to dirty electricity at all “they’re doing it for all the right reason, but unfortunately they haven’t been told that these light bulbs in their homes might be making -people sick”

Effects of my hidden dental metals

As background to my own experience (Shivani Arjuna), please note the comments of Dr. Klinghardt, founder of The Institute for Neurobiology in Seattle, Wa, an expert in the health consequences of electromagnetic fields and  a leading educator for physicians in U.S. and Europe.

“Some of us (and I am part of that group of physicians) believe that electromagnetic radiation and its deep biological effects in the body are affecting everybody. It is just a matter of degree and of quantity. We do know from research, from Dr. Amora in NY, that there is a synergistic effect between heavy metals deposited in the central nervous system from, for example mercury or lead toxity, and electromagnetic fields.”

“Metals stored in the central nervous system act like an antennae that concentrate electromagnetic fields in the central nervous system and then the effects of that are more devastating than in people that have a clean central nervous system.  That is pretty firmly established.  However who becomes toxic with heavy metals also involves a genetic component.  There are people that have impaired enzymes of detoxification very often caused not necessarily by increased exposure toxic metals, but by defective genes. That number of people is going up tremendously. That is true of most austic children and most children of behavioral problems and so forth.  That number is closer now to 20-25% of the population.”

Dr. Klinghardt states that it is “more like 8% of the population that is aware they are hypersensitive to electromagnetic fields. The other 92% is easily affected, but in a more quiet way and may not know that the breast cancer is coming from the exposure to nightime electromagnetic fields in the home or that their hormonal problems or low testosterone is caused by the ambient electrical fields at home.

The patient with ALS or MS may not be aware that the silently creeping advancement of the illness is greatly contributed to by the electromagnetic fields of the home. So you really have a distinct line between where
the symptoms are obviously caused by electrosmog and where it may be more clandestine, more hidden where the symtoms are caused by electromagnetic fields in a more silent way.”  [BTW, we know someone who was diagnosed with ALS whose symptoms were reversed when he learned to avoid exposure to harmful electromagnetic frequencies. -Shivani]

You can hear the interview with Dr. Klinghardt by clicking on the link to it at:
http://electromagnetichealth.org/audio-archives-and-more/.

Several other excellent interviews are also posted there.

Here’s the info. about my own recent experience.

Even dentists who are aware that mercury is toxic use other metals they believe to be safe, which are not. Many of us have such dental metals that we are not even aware of, as they are not visible to us.

Some non-mercury composite filling materials contain metal oxides as colorant.  This metal may leach into your body. Its presence in a tooth has an energy effect on your body.  In addition, even your holistic dentist may have
added a metal pin or two when filling a tooth, with the purpose of stabilizing a large filling.

I recently discovered that I have titanium pins screwed into several of my teeth.  (Once in, a surrounding, opaque metal-oxide filling makes them impossible to see, even in x-rays.)  “Oh, they are completely nontoxic,” I was told
by the office of the dentist who had put them in with all good intentions. That they are wonderful receiving antennae simply did not occur to him.

Dr. Douglas Cook of Suring, WI is part of a research program that enables him to use electrodermal testing with the tolerance, if not the blessing, of the FDA.  The testing involves sending an electrical current to a specific tooth or area of the jaw.   If the system is in balance, the body returns an equal flow of current.  Where imbalance is present, the return flow will be weak.

This testing indicated a problem with a tooth of mine that had become extremely sensitive to touch or any temperature change.   I was also experiencing inexplicable deterioration of vision in the eye just above that tooth, compared to my other eye, so I decided to have Dr. Cook remove the old filling material, which was the kind with some metal in it.   He discovered that there was also a titanium pin screwed down into the base of the tooth.   Within 24 hours of his removing the pin and the old filling, the vision in my eye improved. Previously, I had not been able to read with that eye alone.  Now I can.

What really knocked my proverbial socks off, though, was the realization about a week later that chronic, inexplicable, very disconcerting spasms of a particular spot in my intestines, on the same side of the body as that tooth, had stopped occurring.

These spasms had begun several years ago, during a time when I experienced a general health collapse that later turned out to be directly related to my exposure to “dirty electricity.”   (Health-damaging frequencies being delivered to our homes along with our 60Hz.  These higher frequencies, are biologically active in a very detrimental way, causing a wide range of neurological, cardiac, respiratory, dermatological, ophthalmologic and other symptoms.

At the time of my collapse and through the first months of my recovery as we cleared our home of more and more of this invisible pollution, I was a walking detector of dirty electricity.   If I went near a hidden source, such as a
computer behind a wall in an office suite, I’d instantly have intestinal spasms.   My more severe sympoms cleared up after we were able to bring the level of electrical pollution down in our home.  However, perhaps due to the fact that our electrical neutral is overloaded, we have never been able to bring the level of electrical pollution down to 20 GS (Graham Stetzer) units, the level at which symptoms are rarely triggered, these spasms remained chronic.   If I received much exposure during the day, particularly if I had visited an area away from home where I was exposed to a higher level of electrical pollution or communications frequencies, I’d have a lot of spasms that night and be unable to sleep.

What was so disconcerting about these spasms was that they were so intense they shook my chest area, thud! thud! thud! with a sensation remarkably similar to what I’d experienced when I had had preatrial cardiac syndrome before
we had become educated abut electrical pollution and mitigated our house. I had experienced such severe cardiac symptoms on two occasions that I had been rushed to the ER by ambulance.  So, for the past several years, every time my gut would spasm I’d tense up, due to a post-traumatic stress reaction.

We are talking about several years of these spasms, and many things tried in hopes of stopping them, to no avail.    Because of a tiny titanium pin and/or a bit of metal oxide.

A third change that occurred within days of the pin  being removed was the disappearance of a good-sized senile keratosis that had been on my shoulder near the tooth with the pin in it.  It happens that I had had my doctor look at
that, to see if it might be carcinogenic, so this is also a matter of my medical record.

A fourth change, noted a few weeks after removal of the composite and the pin, is that though I had been experiencing chronic and severe nightly cramping of the calf and foot on the side of my body where the pin was located, these cramps are now both infrequent and of greatly reduced severity.

Now I have noticed yet a 5th change, which is that I no longer have the chronic runny nose that had bothered me for years.

All of this, of course, may be argued to be mere coincidence. However, if this were your own experience, what would you conclude?

The Dangers of Cell Phone Use and Cell Phone Radiation

The Dangers of Cell Phone Use and Cell Phone Radiation

By Ben Needles 

The electromagnetic field (EMF) has been a natural part of the earth ever since the beginning of the universe and extends throughout all of space. It is a fundamental form of nature. The most familiar form of the electromagnetic field, to us, is found in sunlight. This electromagnetic field is actually the interaction of both an electric field, which is composed of stationary charges, and the magnetic field which consists of wave like currents.  

What is most interesting about the electromagnetic field is that, not only does it exist as a natural phenomenon around us, but it is also produced by a large number of the technological advances we have made and that we now tend to take for granted. For example, the microwave oven that most of us heat food or warm the baby’s bottle in produces EMFs. Even your computer screen and your cell phone produce EMFs. Actually, there are many electrical devices in and around your home that produce EMFs. Electrical substations and power lines are other examples of EMF producers outside your home.  

Because the amount of EMF exposure has increased, as a result of technological advancement, scientific studies indicate that too much exposure can have a negative impact on human health, specifically increasing the cancer susceptibility rate. Moreover, some studies seem to indicate that children living in close proximity to overhead power lines, in combination with their still developing immune system, are more likely to develop leukemia than children who don’t live near these power sources.  

Additionally, due to the increase of EMF exposure there has also been a noted increase in miscarriages, birth defects, breast cancer, brain cancers, and Alzheimer’s disease, to note a few more of the potential hazards of EMF. EMFs have also been associated with an increase of chronic fatigue, depression, headaches, allergies and other environmental disease.

Here’s how EMFs work on the human body. EMFs reduce the pineal glands ability to produce melatonin, which is a hormone that has been medically proven to control circadian rhythms and mood. EMFs also inhibit the immune systems ability to protect the body from the formation of pre-cancerous cells. When the body’s immune system is compromised the body is more susceptible to contracting any number of antigens that it can’t naturally fight off.  

Cell phones are also on the list of EMF producing devices. According to Australian Health Research Institute nearly one third of the worlds population is susceptible to some form of ear, eye, or brain cancer, not to mention that EMFs produced by cell phones also have the potential of causing other body disorders, such as epilepsy, heart problems, migraines, and more. EMFs are also produced by the transfer towers that assist in the signal transmission from cell phone to cell phone.

Because of the EMF threat to your health there are some things to keep in mind. First, reduce the amount of the use of your cell phone. If you are at home and have a land line, use the land line not the cell phone. Also, turn off the cell phone when you are not using it. When out and about keep your cell phone in a place other than a pocket over or near your heart. In addition, you should avoid living or working near transmission masts.

 

EMF expert and founder of the Research Center for Wireless Technology, Paul Fitzgerald, graduate from NJIT, has been studying EMF\’s for over 15 years now. He has done over 100 radio shows in 2006 and released his book http://www.emfnews.org
