Huss A, Spoerri A, Egger M, Röösli M; for the Swiss National Cohort Study.

The relation between residential magnetic field exposure from power lines
and mortality from neurodegenerative conditions was analyzed among 4.7
million persons of the Swiss National Cohort (linking mortality and census
data), covering the period 2000-2005. Cox proportional hazard models were
used to analyze the relation of living in the proximity of 220-380 kV power
lines and the risk of death from neurodegenerative diseases, with adjustment
for a range of potential confounders.

Overall, the adjusted hazard ratio for
Alzheimer’s disease in persons living within 50 m of a 220-380 kV power line
was 1.24 (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.80, 1.92) compared with persons
who lived at a distance of 600 m or more. There was a dose-response relation
with respect to years of residence in the immediate vicinity of power lines
and Alzheimer’s disease: Persons living at least 5 years within 50 m had an
adjusted hazard ratio of 1.51 (95% CI: 0.91, 2.51), increasing to 1.78 (95%
CI: 1.07, 2.96) with at least 10 years and to 2.00 (95% CI: 1.21, 3.33) with
at least 15 years. The pattern was similar for senile dementia. There was
little evidence for an increased risk of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis,
Parkinson’s disease, or multiple sclerosis.

Spain Wifi Discomfort at the University of Baiona

Some (electro-magnetic radiation) waves could be the source of the discomfort at the University of Baiona.

While carrying out analysis of the air in the IUT of Baiona from the malaise of last week, failure of the Wi-Fi system on Monday has agree with a sense of well being in the administrative offices.

This week, classes at the Faculty of Commerce of Bayonne have been displaced to the old campus. An inspection by the technical services and hygiene of the place in Baiona did not allow to conclude what are the causes of headaches and dizziness for students, and if they have to do with the air.

All this week, and the next (week of vacation in Iparralde), there will be some air sensors installed in offices, in the auditorium and administrative offices of the new university, opened for only one month.

On Tuesday morning, employees who had felt headaches felt much better than the day before: the disappearance of headaches, breathing feeling better. However, it had not yet conducted any special treatment from the air.

Because the simple installation of devices to measure could not be at the origin of this improvement, only a precautionary measure, more discreet, improvements that could explain that the affected employees have felt since Monday: Wi-Fi connections in the administrative area, positioned a few meters of offices, in the corridors of the ITU, have been withdrawn.

If the measurements of air shows little determinants, the issue of electro-magnetic waves and its harmful influence on the so-called electro-hypersensitive people will have to be analyzed.

Disorders Wifi

According to the World Health Organization, the electromagnetic hypersensitivity “is characterized by various symptoms that affected people attribute to exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF). These symptoms can include dermatological symptoms (redness, tingling sensation and burning sensations), neurasthenic and vegetative symptoms (fatigue, tiredness, difficulty concentrating, dizziness, nausea, heart palpitations and digestive disorders). This set of symptoms is not part of any recognized syndrome. ”

Since the end of 2007, the question of WiFi and its potential health risks is the subject of questions, especially in places like public libraries: Several employees have complained of problems, as well as headaches and malaise, and name of the precautionary principle, the WiFi system, for example, has been disqualified in 4 libraries of Paris.

WiFi System at Spain’s University of Baiona Cause of Students’ “Discomfort”

Cell Phone Digital Ebook

This story is from Spain but it has been forwarded to me from France. The translation to English is not very clear but I think we are able to understand the general meaning.

It appears that students at the University of Baiona have been complaining of headaches, breathing problems and dizziness (symptoms of microwave exposure illness). In response the University is conducting air testing. When the University WiFi system failed, persons on the campus soon noticed an improvement in their health.

It will be interesting to see whether the University management will recognize the dangers of microwave radiation and take positive action, or whether they will continue to deny that electro magnetic radiation is harmful and fail to protect students and staff.

Have YOU noticed a Problem with YOUR Teeth near a Cell Tower?

I have been working for a local District Council for 18 yrs and approximately 3 years ago a mast was erected outside our office window. Since then I have had problems with my teeth, pain in my mouth quite regularly over these years.”

“I have requested information from my Health & Safety Officer and twice got back the latest information on the dangers of these masts, which is saying there is no proven risks. In the last 6 months, we have had 5 new ladies employed in our office, all working in the same vicinity of this mast. 2 of the five have had severe problems with their teeth in these 6 months, one has very back teeth anyway, I have had one wisdom tooth loosen and had to have out and another break in half, we were discussing this on Friday, and another lady has started having strange sensations in her mouth, she said like a magnet going over her teeth. The only lady who hasn’t had any problems has got all white fillings in her teeth. I asked all the others whether they have got all Mercury fillings and they have, as I have.”

The Disappearing Male Studies Show Rise In Birth Defects, Infertility Among Men Part 2

A paper co-authored by Keith and published three years ago in the U.S. journal Environmental Health Perspectives suggests that exposure to various chemicals produced by industrial plants surrounding the Aamjiwnaang reserve land may be skewing the community’s sex ratio.

The researchers looked at the community’s birth records since 1984 and saw “a dramatic drop in the number of boys being born in the last 10 years, particularly in the five-year period between 1998 and 2003,” Brophy said.

Of 132 Aamjiwnaang babies born between 1999 and 2003, only 46 were boys. Typically, about 105 boys are born for every 100 girls in Canada.
High miscarriage rates and a unusually high number of children suffering from asthma were also noted by researchers.

Although the link between pollutants and human reproduction has not been firmly established, there is growing evidence that the birth sex ratio can be altered by exposure to certain chemicals, such as dioxin, PCBs and pesticides. Brophy said studies done in the United States, Japan and Europe seem to support the theory that the so-called endocrine disrupting chemicals have a particular effect on males.

Some of these chemicals are found in commonly used products such as baby bottles and cosmetics. They can also cause miscarriages and a “whole host” of disorders in a male child, Brophy said.
Brophy said soil and water contamination in and around the Aamjiwnaang reserve had been documented before, including in a University of Windsor study that found high levels of PCBs, lead, mercury and various chemicals in the area in the late 1990s. Accidental chemical spills in the area have not been uncommon.

But it wasn’t until the Aamjiwnaang birth ratio study was published that the global science community really took notice.
“It triggered … calls from scientists and researchers from around the world who had been looking at this issue in Europe and the United States,” Brophy said. “Aamjiwnaang became almost the poster child.”

While Brophy has not seen The Disappearing Male documentary yet, he believes the story of the Aamjiwnaang community will be “the focal point.”

He said the documentary also includes interviews with “some of the foremost experts in the world” on environmental effects on reproductive health.

Brophy and Keith have also studied other occupational and environmental exposures to pollutants, including the link between breast cancer and certain types of jobs in the Windsor-Essex region.
