It is usually considered that any frequency above TV channel 83 is microwave. There’s a “fuzzy” line between microwave and non-microwave radio signals. In truth, the higher channels of the UHF band in America are thought to be the near microwave band. Radio signals operating with short wavelengths measured in centimeters, can increase the temperature of water and tissues at a distance. Though most of the people compare this only with microwave ovens, this effects occurs at lower frequencies. Complicated proteins present in blood also break down into poisonous materials. These invisible, toxic compounds may cause skyrocketing muscle, joint and nerve agony in folk over time as poisons build up in the body. Many of us have put their microwave ovens on the curb, when they discovered their agony was linked to microwaved food.
Decades gone, folks could go to a doctor for aches and pains and be treated with a Diathermy machine. This machine was basically a shortwave radio transmitter, and operated with a curved antenna that fits the human body. When placed against the skin, the antenna radiated energy that was soaked up deep in the body’s tissues. A sufficient power level of RF energy will cause currents of electricity to flow in these tissues, thus making heat. These machines are likely outlawed by this time and died a quiet death in America. RF energy causes molecules to collide with each other making heat. This happens in tisuues like muscles, as well as blood. FM stations ( found in the radio band near TV channel six ) and over the air TV channels two thru thirteen are all in the VHF band. These signals can also pass thru the human body without harm.
These waves are measured in several feet. When you look at any Television antenna, multiply the width of the antenna by 4, which will be the wavelength of the wave from the Television transmitter. Thus the term [*FR3] wavelength, which is a design rule for most antennas. TV channels fourteen thru 83 are in the UHF area. Channel 83 is basically just below analog cell telephone frequencies. Progammable police scanners scan police channels that are terribly close to cell telephone frequencies. ( Privacy laws force scanners to dam the cell telephone band. ) WHERE DOES MICROWAVE BEGIN ? We are now entering the realm where RF starts to affect the human body at a distance.
THE RF Range – WHAT DIFFERENT RF FREQUENCIES DO TO THE HUMAN BODY For our EU chums, please note that all of the frequencies referenced below are for the Yankee and Canadian radio range. The lowest frequencies are radio waves, that are essentially the same as frequencies as the audio sound which comes out of your speakers. This called VLF, or Really Low Frequency. These waves have wavelengths measured in thousands of miles.
They pass through the body without damage. Commercial AM radio signals, use waves that are also quite long and pass thru the body with relative ease. These are also waves, whose wavelengths are measured in lots of feet. Shortwave signals are also exceedingly long, and this part of the range reaches up to part of the miltary band, located below Television channel two.
The immunity mechanism is in charge of cleaning up mutant DNA. But can the immunity mechanism clean it out all of the defective DNA and dead cells, and do this indefinitely ? Modern medical science knows there are limits to what proportion of an attack on the body the immunity mechanism can deal with. WHY RF IS like RADIOACTIVITY For those acquainted with radiation exposure dangers, the striking parallels to radioactivity are plain here. RF Frequency is analogous to the radiation type, like Alpha, Beta or Gamma. In reality, each of these particles move as a frequency above that of ultraviolet light, and are really composed from high speed particles.
Each one of the particle types is affecting the human body and systems in alternative ways. RF power level is the same as the number of particles per second of a radioactive source. Both duration and distance also transliterate into the realm of radiation exposure. We think we know that certain radioactive particles from Alpha particle emitters cause the most damage to lung cells when breathed. Alpha particle ionizing radiation changes DNA in cells, and can create pre-cursor changes leading to cancer.
Tissues and structures in the body that appear on scans and x-rays are occasionally diagnosed as a “pre-cancerous condition” by doctors. Older camping mantle lanterns were extraordinarily radioactive, because they were made of the component thorium. ( the writer of this paper found such a radioactive mantle in an older propane lantern. It is thought that almost all of these are now off the market. ) the cause of talking about the above subject, is to show that anything which changes cellular DNA can be extremely unhealthy. And this is both nuclear radiation and RF. There are also chemical and effects from ultraviolet as well.
For instance, the new riot control weapons the Pentagon have operates in the Super-High Frequency ( SHF ) area. This frequency is about fifteen times higher than a traditional microwave stove. Though SHF isn’t soaked up into the skin, it boils perspiration on the skin causing agony. 2. DURATION – How long you are exposed to the radiation, or how long the transmitter is “on.” three. DISTANCE – How close you are to the antenna. Energy levels decrease with the square of the distance. Four. POWER LEVEL – What the power of the signal is. This is measured in microwatts, milliwatts and watts. One microwatt is a millionth of a watt, One milliwatt is one-thousandth of a watt. For instance, one thousand milliwatts is one watt.
Cell telephone power levels are commonly in the hundred milliwatt to four watt class. During the past, older bag type cell telephones folks carried around, were up near four watts of power. Getting a powerful signal was no problem. Today’s pocket cell telephones are in the hundred milliwatt area. Reducing the power goes with size reduction and a smaller battery. This also decreases cell size, which essentially is advantageous as I can explain latter. Five.
SUSCEPTABILITY – Like tobacco smoke, you can’t tell if you may or will not become unwell from RF exposure. But RF heating of body tissues and probable DNA alteration ( mutation ) occurs to one hundred pc of the folk exposed to RF. The quantity of heating is decided by a mix of the 4 factors above.
The general public are unware of the Radio Frequency radiation they are exposed to. Radiation is mostly related to radium, weapons, medical treatments, nuclear power plants and smoke detectors. Before we debate undercover cell towers and other many radiating antennas being installed with impunity, we should review the RF range.
This can be beneficial in knowing how the radio range has effects on us. We won’t debate HAARP, which is in itself a singular area of the radio range in the shortwave band. There are largely 2 kinds of damaging radiation ( excluding light like ultraviolet ) : A. State . CONTROLLED RADIOACTIVE SOURCES : Power plants, smoke detectors, hospital treatment sources, etc… B. Rash RF EXPOSURE : Radio Frequency devices of many types. The RD range is controlled by the FCC in America, and other similar regulatory agencies that exist in other states around the globe thru world radio agreements.
Yet a lot of them seem to be extremely disinterested about health effects. We may focus on the latter in this esay – Rash RF EXPOSURE. RF signals are with no doubt an invisible form of pollution. Most of the people see a smokestack smoking and scream “OH ! Look at that pollution !” But as we’ll see, this isn’t actually the most immediate, major health jeopardy. What is understood about RF, is that unhealthy effects from it are related to a nearly infinte mix of each one of the 5 following factors : one. FREQUENCY – Certain frequencies are soaked up in the body more than others.
When we were growing up, Television antennas were on top of our homes and such waves were up in the sky. Cell telephones and Wi-Fi have brought those things down to the street, integrated them into the environment, and that is completely new. As to increases in brain growths tied to cell telephone use, it’s too early to inform thanks to a shortage of hard information, announces Dr Carlo. “We’re never going to see that in time to have it count. Here in the States, we are 6 years behind in getting the brain cancer database finished, and now the best information are from 1999. By the point you see any information showing an increase, the ticking time bomb is set.”.
Pandemic curve projections indicate that in 2006, we should expect to see forty thousand to fifty thousand cases of brain and eye cancer. This is predicated on printed peer-reviewed studies that let calculation of risk and development of pandemic curves. By 2010, says Dr Carlo, expect that number to be between four hundred thousand and five hundred thousand new cases around the world.
Your heart, as an example, beats at 2 cycles per second, or 2 Hz. Cellular energy is now used for protection instead of metabolism. Cell surfaces toughen, keeping nutrients out and waste products in. This, says Dr Carlo, is the likeliest mechanism that makes a contribution to cancer.
Damage happens to proteins on the cell surface, leading to interruption of intercellular communication. When cells can’t communicate with one another, the result’s diminished tissue, organ, and organism function. In the blood-brain barrier, as an example, cells can’t keep deadly chemicals from reaching the brain tissue, which ends up in damage.
These symptoms of electrosensitivity include incapacity to sleep, general malaise, and headaches. “One thing all these conditions have in common is an interruption, to varying degrees, of intercellular communication.
A cellular telephone is essentially a radio that sends signals on waves to a base station. The carrier signal generates 2 kinds of radiation fields : a near-field plume and a far-field plume. Living organisms, too, generate electromagnetic fields at the cellular, tissue, organ, and organism level ; this is named the biofield. “The near field plume is the one we are most engaged with. “The more power there’s, the further the plume generates the perilous information-carrying radio waves.”.
A carrier wave oscillates at 1900 megahertz ( MHz ) in most telephones, which is generally invisible to our biological tissue and does not do damage. The information-carrying secondary wave critical to translate voice or data is the issue, announces Dr Carlo. That wave cycles in a hertz ( Hz ) range familiar to the body.

Each day, we are swimming in an ocean of electromagnetic radiation produced by electric appliances, power lines, wiring in buildings, and a slew of other technologies that are a part of modern life. From the dishwasher and microwave oven in the kitchen and the clock radio next to your bed, to the cellular telephone you hold to your earsometimes for hours each dayexposure to EMR is growing and turning into a heavy health threat.
Most lately, a Danish epidemiological study told to great fanfare the incorrect conclusion that cell telephone use is totally safe. George Carlo, PhD, JD, is an epidemiologist and medical scientist who, from 1993 to 1999, headed the 1st telecomms industry-backed studies into the risks of cell telephone use. That program remains the biggest in the history of the issue. But he ran afoul of the industry that employed him when his work exposed preventable health dangers related to cell telephone use.
