The Negative Effects of Laptop EMFs on a Woman and Their Fetus

The laptop computer Electromagnetic Field (EMF), also known as Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR), is harmful to users and a particular health risk to pregnant women and their unborn fetuses. In 2012, a European journal released a study that links radiation emissions from laptop computers to low currents in the human body thus, increasing the potential for health problems. The study suggests that there should be actions taken by standards bodies and users to reduce these exposures. In the meantime, consider radiation protection from laptops as well as tablets and other handheld electronic devices.

Study Abstract
Early in 2012, the Environmental & Occupational Health Publication published the article Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields From Laptop Use of “Laptop” Computers. The abstract says that laptop computers are often used in tight contact with the body. They conclude that laptops generate Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs), also known as a magnetic flux, that induce currents in the body. This study investigates if there are health concerns when exposed to these fields, with particular emphasis on women and their fetus. The study concluded that Swedish EMF standards were exceeded by 71–483% which, by the standard’s definition, increases risk for tumor development. They also say that laptops are contacting the body in a very delicate area close to skin, bones, blood, genitals, and, in pregnant women, close to the fetus. These laptops have electrical circuits and power supplies that produce Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) causing detectable impairment to the health of the exposed individual or his or her offspring.

Study Details
Five laptop computers from different manufacturers were studied in a laboratory to determine radiation emissions. Measurements were taken using highly specialized and sensitive testing equipment to find the field density, a measurement of power and strength. The higher the density, the more likely currents are created in the body. The researchers correlated their findings into a large database of average pregnant woman developed by National Institute of Information and Communications Technology and Ciba University. This merge of data enabled the study to acutely determine, with statistical significance, how patterns of exposure impact the health of pregnant women and their fetus.

Study Conclusions
The study concludes that a mother and fetus are exposed to higher amounts of EMFs by laptops than those found in close proximity of high-voltage power lines or video screens. EMF values were higher than the values recommended by 2 recent guidelines for computer monitor magnetic field emissions and considered a risk for the development of blood tumors.

Observations
The authors reviewed study data from many sources and concluded that the effects of Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) in some studies failed to link low-intensity Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) and tumors while others reports found clear adverse effects impacting heart rate, sleep, and other health concerns. In part, they observe, that the studies that found no links, were nevere intended to find links.

Conclusion
The authors recommend reducing exposure to Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) and agree with World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations that devices, like laptops should be reengineered to lower emissions. They go on to say that laptops are a source of increased EMF exposure and that users should be aware of increased health risks, particularly during pregnancy.

Home Radiation Protection

While the scientific community continues to study the possible relationship between cell phone radiation and brain tumors there is no consensus on the subject as of yet state legislators in Maine are considering a proposal that would require cell phones to carry warnings that they may cause brain cancer. Democrat Andrea Boland is leading the charge, citing studies that have shown a link between cancer and cell phone use, according to the Associated Press.

If passed, Boland’s bill would mandate that cell phone manufacturers put warning labels on mobile phones and packaging, indicating the risk of cancer from exposure to low-grade electromagnetic radiation. The permanent labels on phones would be written in black ink, except for the word “warning,” which would appear in red. Warnings would also include recommendations that people not hold the devices too closely to their bodies or heads.

A recent study from the Danish Cancer Society found that cell phone use did not increase brain tumor rates. But study authors suggested that it may be too early to determine the true impact of regular exposure to low-grade radiation, as brain tumors are slow to develop and cell phones only came into wide use in the 1990s. While research into the cancer risk posed by cell phone use is ongoing, the mobile devices continue to grow in popularity some 270 million Americans currently own a cell phone, up from 110 million nearly a decade ago.

Mobile Radiation Norms to Take Effect Only From Sept 2013

http://www.emfnews.org/headset.html

Radiation Detection Meters

Cell Phone Radiation Protection

NEW DELHI, AUG. 23:

The Government has decided to postpone the radiation norms for mobile phones by a year till September 2013. This is because the handset makers are seeking more time.

The radiation norms were supposed to come into effect from this September.

From September 2013, only the mobile handsets with revised specific absorption rate (SAR) value of 1.6W/kg would be permitted to be manufactured or imported in India for the domestic market, according to a Department of Telecom proposal.

The Government has carefully considered the demand and supply position of mobile phones with revised SAR value, time required to launch new models and phasing out of existing models, the DoT proposal says.

“All new design of mobile handsets shall comply with the specific absorption rate (SAR) values of 1.6 W/kg averaged over one gram tissue from September 1, 2012. However, the mobile handsets with existing designs which are compliant with 2 W/kg averaged over 10 gram tissue, may continue to co-exist up to August 31, 2013,” it said.

The DoT had received requests from the manufacturers to permit existing designs of handsets complying with International Commission on Non-ionising Radiation Protection norms to co-exist with the newly designed and introduced handsets as per the new norms.

However, other instructions that were directed in January will remain the same, including the manufacturer’s booklet containing safety precautions.

SELF-DECLARATION

Also, self-declaration of manufacturers for conformity to SAR level of mobile handsets and testing in International Laboratory Accreditation Co-operation (ILAC) accredited labs will continue to be enforced, it said.

They should also provide a self-declaration certificate accredited by ILAC or Telecom Engineering Centre (TEC) India, in respect of SAR value based to the DoT for necessary action.

“Such self-declared SAR limits shall be subjected to TEC as and when required,” it added.

Excessive Exposure to Computer Radiation and Heat Leads to Many Health Concerns

http://www.emfnews.org/store/

Blue Tube Headset Reviews

Home Radiation Protection EMF

The amount of time the average person spends in contact with an electrical device is understandably large. The majority of middle-class Americans own a cellphone and/or a computer, not to mention a myriad of other devices such as microwaves, DVD players, televisions, etc. In fact, according to the New York Times, 54% of Americans aged 18 to 30 own a minimum of one laptop. Needless to say, these devices are so integral to modern life that interaction with them on a daily basis is seemingly inevitable. This reality makes the idea of radiation that much more alarming; particularly radiation from one’s laptop computer, which is used for both work and leisure and often comes into close contact with one’s body.

In significant enough doses computer radiation can have a myriad of negative effects on the body such as; psychological conditions like depression and anxiety, mild to severe headaches, insomnia, respiratory difficulty, nausea, and dizziness, to name a few. The danger from computer radiation is derived both from thermal and low-energy, non-iodizing radiation, which stems from the computer’s internal mechanisms and wireless connection.

Exposure to heat radiation from computers poses a significant danger if exposure is excessive. As previously stated, excessive use of laptop computers is common, and therefore dangers to one’s health from computer radiation are quite real. Among; the biggest risks is the possible damage to fertility if laptops are placed on a male’s lap for hours per day. Prolonged exposure to laptop thermal energy may not only decrease sperm count, but it can also cause severe irritation of the skin. As far as other laptop radiant energy is concerned, electromagnetic radiation is the other primary focus in the media and among concerned individuals. Exposure to large amounts of electromagnetic radiation can cause meaningful damage to healthy cells and signal and internal body temperature.

Dangers posed by computer radiation come from excess exposure to electromagnetic radiation and thermal energy from internal computer components. Although there are competing studies as to how serious the dangers may be, tech users can never be too careful. In order to protect oneself from possible negative side effects of computer radiation, there are effective solutions such as The DefenderPad EMF shield that mitigate possible health damage.

Expert Panel Suggests Stricter Radiation Norms for Mobiles

http://www.emfnews.org/headset.html

Radiation Detection Meters

Cell Phone Radiation Protection

NEW DELHI, JUNE 5:

An expert group set up by the Department of Telecom has suggested stricter radiation norms for mobile handsets and towers in order to mitigate any possible health related effects due to emissions from these devices.

The proposed radiation norms are 10 times stricter than the existing ones.

The current rules governing mobile radiation are based on the guidelines set by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).

THE CEILING

This body has stipulated that manufacturers must ensure that the Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) level of a cell phone does not exceed 2 watts per kg averaged over 10 grams tissue.

SAR is the amount of radio waves absorbed by the body while using a mobile phone.

The expert group has suggested that this limit should be brought to 1.6 watts per kg averaged over 1 gram tissue. For mobile towers the committee has suggested revising from 200 watts per square meter to 2,000 watts per square meter.

Mr Sachin Pilot, Minister of State for Communications and IT, said, “While telecom is a huge success story in India, any possible health related effects of radiation emitted by mobile phones and towers are to be reflected and ensured in the guidelines. The final guidelines would take into account the best global benchmarks and scientific evidence on the subject.”

The Department of Telecom had set up the group in August 2010 to evaluate the evidence, revisit radiation guidelines for mobile towers and adopt guidelines for radiation emission by cell phones.

This group had experts from Ministry of Health, Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Environment and Forests and Indian Council of Medical Research.

The WHO had recently said that use of mobile phones could cause cancer. The health body advised consumers to switch to text messaging and use of the hands-free option to reduce exposure.

Court Rules Cell Phones Are Causing Brain Tumours

http://www.emfnews.org/store/

Envi Headsets

Home Radiation Protection

In response to the increasing amount of information shedding light on how cell phones can alter the brain in many known and unknown ways, Italy’s Supreme Court cantered in Rome has decided to take action. Seeking to protect unknowing consumers with a particular eye on children, whose brain is still developing and more susceptible to damage, the court has ruled that a link exists between brain tumour development and cell phone use.

The ruling follows a monumental study that found a massive 290% spike in brain tumour risk after using a cell phone for 10 years. A study that has real relevance for Innocente Marcolini, an Italian businessman who was a key part of the court’s ruling. Marcolini was an active cell phone user, reportedly talking on the phone for around 6 hours every single day at work. Over 12 years of use, Marcolini developed a tumour which many scientists are saying is the result of cell damage via the electromagnetic radiation emitted from cell phones.

This electromagnetic radiation, which is also emitted from cordless phones, damages cells to the point where tumours can become much more likely. DNA damage can also occur, similar to how laptop Wi-Fi has been found to damage both DNA and fertility in as little as 4 hours of direct use.

Marcolini, like many professors and doctors around the globe, is pleased that the Italian government has finally recognized the link between cell phones and tumours like his own. According to The Telegraph, Marcolini hailed the announcement as essential to protecting susceptible children from the dangers:
“I wanted it recognised that there was a link between my illness and the use of mobile and cordless phones… Parents need to know their children are at risk of this illness.”

Marcolini’s statement was also backed by professor Angelo Gino Levis, a highly recognized oncologist and educator of environmental mutagenesis. Coupled with neurosurgeon Dr Giuseppe Grasso, Levis explained to The Sun that the ruling will allow for many consumers hurt by cell phones to take action. Discussing a potential future lawsuit against cell phone companies, Levis seemed very optimistic over the future of the ruling. He said:
”The court decision is extremely important. It finally officially recognises the link. It’ll open not a road but a motorway to legal actions by victims. We’re considering a class action.”

A class action could very well not only gain media attention on the subject, but actually go places legally. In the event that enough consumers jumped on board, class actions could spring up outside of Italy and take on big cell phone corporations for the damages incurred by the use of their phones. Then again, Apple and other companies actually warn you right inside their manuals that the phones can cause serious problems and recommend holding it a couple inches or so away from your head. In other words, these companies were certainly aware of the real dangers to public health.

Nevertheless, the ruling means great things for the future of forcing companies to answer for their actions and create safer technology.

Congress Wants The FCC To Review Outdated Cell Phone Radiation Standards

http://www.emfnews.org/headset.html

Radiation Detection Meters

Cell Phone Radiation Protection

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) introduced a bill in Congress last Friday that would examine force the FCC to investigate the potential side effects of radiation from mobile phones. The bill demands that the government “examine, label, and communicate adverse human biological effects associated with exposure to electromagnetic fields from cellphones and other wireless devices, and for other purposes.” On Tuesday, the Government Accountability Office also called for action, noting that the Federal Communications Commission set its maximum exposure limits more than 15 years ago during the early days of mobile technology. The GAO warns that federal cell phone radiation standards are outdated and may not protect public health.

“The FCC has been wearing a blindfold for more than a decade, pretending that while cell phones were revolutionizing how we communicate, the agency didn’t have to take a hard look at what this meant for its so-called safety standards,” said Renee Sharp, director of Environmental Working Group’s California office. “Finally, the FCC has been taken to task for this grave oversight, and we hope and expect it will use the GAO’s findings to update its safety standards for wireless devices.”

The GAO notes that the FCC’s current standards allow 20 times more radiation to reach the head than the body as a whole, and do not account for the possible risks to children’s developing brains. In addition, the agency did not consider the impact of frequent cell phone use over the course of many years.

“In 1996, tweens and teens were not consumers of wireless technology, but today it’s hard to find a group of young people who aren’t armed with the latest mobile device,” said Sharp. “Those populations who are now talking and texting daily were not considered by the FCC when it devised its safety standards fifteen years ago.”

The FCC announced in June that it was considering whether or not to evaluate its current standards, however no final decision was made. The agency has repeatedly spoken of confidence in its current guidelines and claims cell phone emissions pose no risk to consumers.

In the largest study of its kind, scientists from the Institute of Cancer Epidemiology, Danish Cancer Society and the International Agency for Research on Cancer found no clear evidence that mobile phone’s increase the risk of cancer, although the team noted that it could not predict long-term effects.

Modern Technology and the Use of an EMF Shield

http://www.emfnews.org/store/

Envi Headsets

Home Radiation Protection

EMF or an Electromagnetic shield Shield serves many important purposes. Some might think that feeling the need to use an EMF shield is “paranoid,” but the truth is they are extremely practical and in fact, are used with many devices we use every day.

An EMF shield on laptop computer helps mask keyboard input which prevents people from tracing your key strokes at a distance and then determining your passwords. Another EMF shield that nearly every home will have is on their microwaves. Have you ever noticed that despite the microwave door being transparent, it’s still difficult to see through it clearly? This is due to the fine metal mesh that is installed within the glass on the door. Even though the mesh is not solid; it acts as a shield because the holes in the mesh are smaller than the wave-lengths trying to get through them. You will also find a shield built into your cellular phone which prevents you from picking up other people’s phone calls or intercepting their text messages. Older model cell phones did not have this as a standard feature and it was common for text messages to be hi-jacked by other phone signals or calls to be randomly intercepted by another wireless phone signal.

Other examples of devices that use an EMF shield include; broadcasting equipment such as that found in radio stations, medical equipment, dispatching equipment and emergency paging devices. All these technologies require EMF shielding otherwise cell phones and radio signals could interfere with them causing a catastrophic failure. This is a major reason why you are not supposed to use your cellular phone when in-flight. Although the airplane’s equipment does use this shield; the consequences of the interference with a cell-signal or AM/FM radio wave could result in a fatal equipment error and it is just is not worth the risk.

The aforementioned are all instances of an EMF shield that have already been built into consumer products for your convenience, but there are instances where there are no shields where there should be. Have you ever noticed the pesky frequency at which your baby monitor picks up the neighbors child crying or the couple down the street arguing? Baby monitors are one-way radio signals that operate, typically, on one of two channels; so the chance of someone else’s monitor being on the same channel as yours is pretty good. Despite the fact that the neighbor might be three doors down from you, the radio waves on your monitors can still interfere with one another. If you were to use an EMF shield on your monitor it would reduce and even eliminate that crossover interference altogether.

The uses for an EMF shield are endless. To protect yourself from laptop radiation, you can use The DefenderPad EMF shield. Just remember that wrapping your own head in tin foil – although conceptually accurate – may not actually prevent anyone from reading your mind or hi-jacking your brain waves.

Keep off Mobile Radiation Issues, DoT tells Environment Ministry

http://www.emfnews.org/headset.html

Radiation Detection Meters

Cell Phone Radiation Protection

NEW DELHI, OCT. 26:

The turf war between the Telecom Ministry and the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) over regulating electromagnetic radiation emanating from mobile towers has intensified. The Department of Telecom has asked the Ministry to stay away from issuing any policy related to governing mobile radiation.

This follows an advisory from the Environment Ministry in August asking State governments to conduct regular audit of electromagnetic radiations emanating from towers set up by mobile companies. Under this advisory, the Environment Ministry had asked local bodies not to give permission to mobile companies to set up base station in ecologically-sensitive areas, without consulting the Forest Department.

In response, the DoT has written to the Ministry that it was already doing regular checks. “There is no need for any special arrangement for ecological-sensitive areas… Issue of electromagnetic radiation is dealt by the DoT. Involvement of multiple organisations and issue of directions on the same subject by different Ministries will create complication and difficulties,” it added.

The Telecom Ministry and the MoEF have been at loggerheads on this issue for a while with the latter wanting stricter norms and greater role for itself. Earlier, the MoEF set up a Committee to study the impact of mobile radiation on biological systems despite opposition from the Telecom Ministry.

Sibal versus Gehlot

The advisory issued by the MoEF has prompted several State governments to take action against mobile companies. In Rajasthan, for instance, all telecom companies have been told to switch off their cell sites near schools and hospitals.

Communication and IT Minister Kapil Sibal has told Ashok Gehlot, Chief Minister of Rajasthan, to review the decision as it was affecting communication in the State. “Mobile towers have been installed strictly as per guidelines issued by the DoT and they are radiating well within the limits prescribed, which has been verified by the Committee appointed by Government of Rajasthan as well as by the High Court of Rajasthan,” Sibal said in a letter to Gehlot.

Sibal said that the closure of towers in the State may also impact e-governance initiatives in Rajasthan as well as connectivity to village centres. “With closure of base stations near hospitals, doctors will be out of reach for patients. There are large number if hospitals in Jaipur town. The closing down of mobile towers within 500 metres of hospitals will affect about two-thirds of the city,” Sibal said.

Recently, the DoT had asked telecom companies to bring down emission levels by a tenth of earlier permissible limits. Monitoring agencies within DoT have been conducting random checks on towers. It has also set up a helpline to address complaints related to excessive radiation. It also penalised several operators in Mumbai for violating the norms.

Cell Phone Dangers: Loaded with Mercury, Chlorine, Cadmium, Health Risks

http://www.emfnews.org/store/

Envi Headsets

Home Radiation Protection

Not that you’ll be eating your cell phone anytime soon, but did you know that it’s loaded with toxins like mercury, chlorine, and cadmium? Helping to analyze cell phone dangers, the Ecology Center of Ann Arbor, Michigan teamed up with ifixit.com to take apart and identify components of 36 models of cell phones. They found at least one of the following in every device:

* Bromine
* Chlorine
* Cadmium
* Lead
* Mercury

In total, ifixit dismantled over a thousand cell phones to test for toxins by utilizing X-ray fluorescence to irradiate and measure the radiation given back by an object. Certain materials like the toxins are identified by the signature of radiation the object re-emits.

“Even the best phones from our study are still loaded with chemical hazards,” bemoaned Jeff Gearhart, research director of the Ecology Center. He published the results of the study on his website, HealthyStuff.org. “These chemicals [are] linked to birth defects, impaired learning, and other serious health problems.”

Cell Phone Dangers to Children and Adults

Although cell phones are extremely convenient, this convenience does not come without risk or consequence. Using a mobile device for any length of time is damaging to some degree, but new research is shedding light on just how significant of an influence extended cellphone use has on the brain. In one study, it was revealed that 10 years of cell phone use resulted in an average 290% increased risk of brain tumor development.

Similarly, researchers found that 143 proteins in the brain were negatively impacted by radio frequency radiation over a period of 8 months. A total of 3 hours of cell phone exposure were simulated over the 8 month time period, and the results showed that many neural function related proteins’ functional relationship changed the for worse. It’s no surprise that celebrity Sheryl Crow attributes her brain tumor to cell phone use.

What’s more, cell phone dangers play an even greater role on children, who have thinner skulls and younger developing brains. One report shows just how prevalent cell phone dangers are for children. Due to developing organs, lower bone density of the skull, lower body weight, and a less effective blood brain barrier, children are especially vulnerable to cell phone radiation. This is even more true for unborn children, with research showing that microwave radiation emitted by cell phones negatively influencing fetal brains.

It was also revealed in a study conducted 4 years ago that 54 percent of children born from mothers who used cell phones had behavioral issues. What’s more, the percentage jumped to 80 if the children grew up talking on cell phones frequently.

There’s a reason the World Health Organization put cell phones in the same risk category as lead, engine exhaust, and chloroform.

Toxic for the Environment

Sadly, the earth, too, suffers from the toxins in cell phones. Mining tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold for cell phone production causes groundwater contamination as well as human exploitation and brutality in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Moreover, once a cell phone is discarded, it is shipped to places in the world most Americans don’t see much of, like China, India, Pakistan, Vietnam, and the Philippines, where underpaid workers handle the materials and are exposed to the toxins we go to such lengths to avoid, ourselves.

“[The toxins] have been found in soils at levels 10 to 100 times higher than background levels at e-waste recycling sites in China,” says Gearhart. “We need better federal regulation of these chemicals, and we need to create incentives for the design of greener consumer electronics.”

CEO of ifixit, Kyle Wiens, says that in 2009, 2.37 million tons of electronics were discarded. “Of the digital castoffs, only 25 percent made it into recycling centers. We can’t allow the other 75 percent of our old electronics to become waste. All those toxins add up.”

What we can Do

First and foremost, we ought to consider limiting our use of the luxury items—like cell phones—in question. Buying used electronics can cut down on waste and keep items already in circulation out of landfills.

As said by Wiens, we must kee[ pushing for better regulation of harmful materials. In the meantime, recycling e-waste properly can help keep toxins out of our groundwater. Visit e-Stewards for your local e-waste recycling program or drop off unwanted electronics at a nearby Best Buy.

On a personal level to avoid cell phone dangers:

* Limit cell phone use
* Don’t allow young children to have cell phones
* Use the speaker feature more often
* Place your cell phone far away or turn it off while not in use
* Consider investing in cell phone radiation protection
