Cell-phones emit microwave radiation. Is this cause for alarm?

Serious concern is mounting over the mushrooming use of the handy never-leave-home-without-it mobile cellular telephone, or cell-phone. These phones are arguably the most radiative appliance humans have yet invented. It is well known that high levels of RF (Radio Frequency) can produce biological damage through heating effects ? this is indeed how your microwave oven cooks your food. Yet over 190 million Americans are now holding these high-powered transmitters up against their heads. Is this sensible? Or is this suicide?

Back in the early 1900s a Russian engineer, Georges Lakhovsky, made an astonishing discovery. In his book “The Secret of Life” he described how each of the trillions of living cells (in plants, human bodies, bacteria, parasites etc) is nothing but an electromagnetic resonator capable of emitting and absorbing radiations of very high frequency.

The authors report that a group of German scientists found that exposure to electromagnetic fields during mobile phone use may increase resting blood pressure and that Colorado University researchers have shown that frequent mobile users had significantly depressed melatonin—a vital cancer-preventing hormone. Also mentioned is an Australian study that has linked cell phones to a higher rate of brain cancer, while a Swedish study suggests that using a mobile phone for more than 15 minutes could lead to headaches and fatigue.

The article makes reference to a study by Dr. Lennart Hardel showing that mobile phone use increases the risk of a brain tumor by almost two and a half times.

According to Begich and Roderick, cell-phone companies like Motorola attempt to influence the results of research studies. Mentioned in this context was the work of biologists Ross Adey and Dr. Henry Lai. The latter, “who has been studying the biological effects of electromagnetic fields for 20 years, was asked three times [by Motorola] to change findings on how they caused DNA breaks in rats.”

Another biochemist, Jerry Phillips, who worked with Ross Adey on Motorola-funded research beginning in 1991, commented: “Motorola was adamant that Adey never mention DNA damage and radiofrequency (RF) radiation in the same breath.” Said Adey: “Motorola has been manipulative of research that we and others have reported to them. Essentially they cut us off because we were too inquisitive.” Begich and Roderick report that “Phillips, Adey, and other said they see a strong parallel between what’s happening now and the decades of denial by the tobacco industry…”

Other bioeffects that have been reported to result from RF exposure include changes in cell membrane function, metabolism, cellular signal communication, activation of proto-oncogenes and cell death. Resulting effects which have been reported in scientific literature “include DNA breaks and chromosome aberrations, increased free radical production, cell stress and premature aging, changes in cell membrane function including memory loss, learning impairment, headaches and fatigue, sleep disorders, neurodegenerative conditions, reductions in melatonin secretion, and cancer.”

Dr. George Carlo, a health scientist and epidemiologist, ran a $28 million cell phone surveillance and research program from 1993 through 2001. Wireless Technology Research, which was established to conduct the study, was chaired by Dr. Carlo and, significantly, was funded by the cell phone industry. The industry-sponsored research suggested a possible mobile phone-cancer link. Said Dr. Carlo: “You would come to the [possible] conclusion that RF [radio frequencies] causes genetic damage.”On October 7, 1999, Dr. Carlo, in his capacity as chairman of Wireless Technology Research, sent a letter to C. Michael Armstrong, chairman and chief executive officer of AT&T Corporation.
He wrote that hand-held phone users had a higher rate of brain cancer than those who used non-hand-held phones that were away from their heads; that the risk of rare neuro epithelial tumors on the outside of the brain more than doubled in cell phone users as compared to those who did not use cell phones; and that there appeared to be a correlation between brain tumors occurring on the right side of the head and the use of the phone on the right side of the head.

A major study carried out by scientists in Finland suggests that radiation from mobile phones causes changes to the brain. Professor Darius Leszcynski headed up the two-year program at Finland’s Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority. The researchers discovered that radiation from cellular phones can cause activity in hundreds of proteins in human cells grown in a laboratory. It is the first time that scientists have looked at the effects of mobile phone radiation on human cells rather than those of rats.

The scientists found that changes in cells that line blood vessels could weaken the functioning of the brain’s protective shield against harmful substances. These changes damaged the blood-brain barrier—a safety barrier that stops harmful substances in the blood from entering the brain. The study found that exposure caused increased activity in a protein called hsp27 linked to the functioning of the blood-brain barrier. “[Increased protein activity] might cause cells to shrink—not the blood vessels but the cells themselves—and then tiny gaps come between those cells through which some molecules could pass,” said Professor Leszcynski. Speaking to BBC News Online, he stated: “The blood-brain barrier has been shown to be affected by radiation in animal studies. There is a lot of uncertainty about whether this happens in humans. We have shown some biological effects. If it did happen it could lead to disturbances, such as headaches, feeling tired or problems with sleeping. A study by a Swedish research group even suggested it could lead to Alzheimer’s disease.” He also stated that a study by French scientists found similar results in rats.

An abstract of the Finnish study was published in the May 2002 issue of Differentiation. The authors concluded: “Based on the known functions of hsp27, we put forward the hypothesis that mobile phone radiation-induced activation of hsp27 may (1) facilitate the development of brain cancer by inhibiting the cytochrome c/caspase-3 apoptotic pathway and (2) cause an increase in blood-brain barrier permeability through stabilization of endothelial cell stress fibers. We postulate that these events, when occurring repeatedly over a long period of time, might become a health hazard because of the possible accumulation of brain tissue damage. Furthermore, our hypothesis suggests that other brain damaging factors may co-participate in mobile phone radiation-induced effects.”

An article published by Earthpulse Press, entitled Cell Phone Convenience or 21st Century Plague by Dr. Nick Begich and James Roderick, postulates that cell phones “have been one of the fastest growing industries in modern history,” with cell phone usage estimated to climb to 1.3 billion users by the year 2005.

The article is a compilation of much of the research and reporting produced over the last 10 years in the cell phone area.
Among the article’s many citations is the demand by British scientists that mobile phones carry a health warning. “Amid an explosive growth of mobile communications, concerns are mounting about cellular telephones potential links to health problems ranging from headaches to brain tumors. … Mobile telephones are arguably the most radiative appliance we have ever invented apart from the microwave oven and people are putting them by their heads—arguably the most sensitive part of the body,” said bioelectromagnetics scientist Roger Coghill, as reported by Reuters in January 1998. “Cell phones emanate microwave radiation, and human brains may absorb up to 60 percent of that energy.”

The Begich/Roderick article continues: “Researchers have shown that low intensity microwave exposure opens up the blood/brain barrier, a biological effect which can allow the release of dangerous chemicals into the brain.” The article goes on to quote from the September 15, 1999 issue of Svenska Dagbladet: “New Swedish research shows that the radiation from mobile phones might make it easier for poison to penetrate the brain. The findings could explain the diseases that American soldiers who have participated in high-tech warfare are suffering from. The unexplained symptoms of American soldiers of the Kuwait war are suspected to link to the medication they took against nerve gas. The microwaves surrounding soldiers in high-tech warfare could have opened the blood-brain barrier, and the medication penetrated into the brain. The possibility is now being investigated by the US Air Force in co-operation with the Lund [Swedish] scientists.”

Neurological function can be seriously impaired by radiofrequency radiation. Cholinesterase enzyme activity is impaired by exposure to radiofrequency radiation in a manner similar to impairment caused by organophosphate pesticides often rendering a person with radiofrequency sickness particularly sensitive to small amounts of chemicals.20 Radiofrequency radiation can lower the pain threshold, slow reaction times, cause fatigue, muscle weakness, headaches, difficulty concentrating, short-term memory problems and even memory loss. 1,2,3,4 These may be caused by disruption of Ca2+, disruption of various enzyme pathways, induction of the stress response and associated effects, increased permiability of the blood-brain barrier, or various other effects of over exposure to radiofrequency radiation.4,5,20

Radiofrequency radiation significantly decreases melatonin levels and decreases the ability of existing melatonin to fight cancer.5 Good sleep is essential for good mental and physical health. Good sleep is very difficult, if not impossible to obtain if your melatonin levels are abnormally low. Sleep deprivation along with impaired neurological function and enzyme impaiment are likely to be behind the brain fog and cognitive difficulties those with radiofrequency sickness experience.

There is extensive documentation in the literature of alterations of Ca2+ homeostasis.5 This is likely to be responsible at least in part for the profound effects that radiofrequency radiation has on the heart and neurological function. Ca2+ regulates gap junction opening. Gap junctions are key in many intercellular communications.

Exposure to radiofrequency radiation also interferes with the action of enzymes, signaling pathways, and makes the immune system simultaneously hyperactive and less effective.5,18 Immune impairment results in part from the disruptive effect of radiofrequency radiation on calcium ion homeostasis. In addition to radiofrequency radiation-induced immune impairment increasing risk of various types of infection, it is likely to increase the risk of getting cancer from the DNA breakages radiofrequency radiation is well-documented to induce. 5 While radiofrequency radiation is non-ionizing, the metabolic changes it can cause result in oxidative damage to DNA and subsequent breakage. Direct interactions between radiofrequency radiation and DNA can have similar results, as well as causing changes in gene transcription, through changes in electron flows induced by the radiation.19

Don’t assume one cell phone is safer than another: Please understand that despite assurances, there’s still no such thing as a “safe” cell phone.

For example, SAR value, while providing information for comparison purposes between phones, is very limited in its usefulness as a measure of ‘safety.’ For more details on SAR values, please review this previous article.

Keep your cell phone away from your body when it’s on: The most dangerous place to be, in terms of radiation exposure, is within about six inches of the emitting antenna. You do not want any part of your body within that area.

Use safer headset technology: Wired headsets will certainly allow you to keep the cell phone farther away from your body. However, if a wired headset is not well-shielded — and most of them are not — the wire itself acts as an antenna attracting ambient information carrying radio waves and transmitting radiation directly to your brain.

Make sure that the wire used to transmit the signal to your ear is shielded.

The best kind of headset to use is a combination shielded wire and air-tube headset. These operate like a stethoscope, transmitting the information to your head as an actual sound wave; although there are wires that still must be shielded, there is no wire that goes all the way up to your head.

Personally, I believe this issue is so important, I’ve created an entire web site dedicated to EMF education and information. Feel free to bookmark EMF.mercola.com, and check back on occasion for the latest news and updates.

If you must use a portable home phone, use the older kind that operates at 900 MHz. They are no safer during calls, but at least many of them do not broadcast constantly even when no call is being made.

Note the only way to truly be sure if there is an exposure from your cordless phone is to measure with an electrosmog meter, and it must be one that goes up to the frequency of your portable phone (so old meters will not be of much use). You can find meters at www.emfsafetystore.com.

As a general rule of thumb, you can pretty much be sure your portable phone is a problem if the technology is DECT, or digitally enhanced cordless technology.

Use your cell phone only where reception is good: The weaker the reception, the more power your phone must use to transmit, and the more power it uses, the more radiation it emits, and the deeper the dangerous radio waves penetrate into your body. Ideally, you should only use your phone with full bars and good reception.

Also seek to avoid carrying your phone on your body as that merely maximizes any potential exposure. Ideally put it in your purse or carrying bag.

Irrelevant research

In July 2006, the findings of an epidemiological study on DECT phone use by Joachim Schuz et al was published in Radiation Research . This study found no evidence of a higher risk of brain tumours (Glioma and Meningioma) in a small number of exposed subjects that slept close to a DECT base station in the bedroom. (16) This study will no doubt be quoted by the DECT industry as proof that their phones are safe, but the concerns over DECT phones and possible health hazards have not been about the possibility of brain tumours, as examined in this article. Simply put: the researchers did not look at the relevant health issue. A far more useful investigation could have looked for sleep disruption and fatigue in the subjects sleeping next to a DECT phone.

As for a lack of statistical power, out of the total of 747 cases of Glioma and Meningioma combined in the Schuz study, only 10 people were identified who had definitely or possibly placed their DECT cordless phone base station by the bed.
In addition, brain tumors can take many years to develop, with evidence pointing to a 10-year latency. (17) The case could therefore be made that widespread DECT phone use has not gone on long enough to see any population trends in relation to brain tumour incidence. For example, in the Schuz et al study, out of 366 Glioma cases only two had used DECT for 5+ years (controls 732/6) and for the 381 Meningioma cases only four were in the 5+ year category (controls 762/7). (18)

Therefore the study’s conclusion that it is “a first indication that residential low-level exposure to RF EMFs may not pose a higher risk of brain tumors” is overstating the case.

Specifically in relation to DECT phones the IGUMED called for a ban on DECT telephones in preschools, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, events halls, public buildings. They also called for a revision of the DECT standards to reduce the radiation intensity. (13)

The German Federal Radiation Protection Agency (Bundesamt fur Strahlenschutz – BfS) has expressed concerns over DECT phone use. They stated in a January 2006 press release that a DECT cordless phone is often the strongest single source of microwave radiation in a private home. To prevent possible health risks the Agency recommended minimizing personal radiation exposure (if a DECT phone is used) by placing the base station in a place where you do not spend much time, for example a hall. For the workplace the Agency specifically advised to avoid placing DECT phones on work desks and called upon manufacturers to redesign the phones to include a feature of power output control, so that the power output during a call would be adapted to the distance of the handset from its base station. This would allow phone use only to the level of power necessary to keep the communication going and power would be down while on standby and connected to the base station/charger. (14)

In December of 2005 the Public Health Department, Salzburg Region, Austria issued advice to the government, schools and parents warning of the lack of studies available on either shortterm or long-term health effects from WLAN and DECT devices. However the department saw evidence of possible adverse effects such as headaches, concentration difficulty, restlessness, and memory problems etc. The official advice of the Public health Department is not to use WLAN and DECT in Schools or Kindergartens. (15)

Of course the industry manufacturing DECT technology say that there is no conclusive evidence that DECT technology is harmful. This is true, especially considering that the technology is being developed and marketed well before any relevant research on possible long-term health effects. For example:

Official warnings

Soon after DECT phones were first introduced in Europe, mainly for use in office buildings, concerns were raised over possible health effects. One of the largest white collar trade unions in Europe, the Swedish Union of Clerical and Technical Employees in Industry, issued advice to its members to take steps to minimize their exposure to DECT because the system always operated at maximum power and there was insufficient research on possible long-term health effects. (10)

The initial market success for DECT was found in Germany in the early 1990s and it was in that country where adverse health effects from DECT technology soon became apparent. Soon after the introduction of DECT in Germany Dr. Leberecht von Klitzing, a medical physicist and researcher from the University of Luebeck had infants brought to him who were perfectly healthy, but their heart beat became erratic for no obvious reason. As soon as the DECT cordless phone was removed from the bedroom or neighboring apartment, the infant’s heart beat returned to normal. (11)

Concerns within the German medical community led to the Freiburger Appeal in October 2002 , signed by over 130 medical practitioners from the German environmental medicine medical organization, Interdisziplinäre Gesellschaft für Umweltmedizin e. V. (IGUMED). The appeal was to express their concern over their medical observations of adverse health impacts from the use of both cell phones and DECT cordless phones. Symptoms were attributed to exposure to pulsed microwave radiation from cell phone and DECT technology. The following is an extract:
