“Other federal health agencies disagree that safe levels of exposure have been identified, much less built into the FCC standard. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does not agree with the FCC standards, and analysts have recommended that EMR be classified as a “”probable human carcinogen””. 12

Deputy Director of the Dept. of Health and Human Services, Elizabeth Jacobsen, has stated that the safety of RF “”has not been established nor has the necessary research been conducted to test it””, and cites risk of brain cancer, tumors and DNA breakdown. The California Public Utility Commission has urged the cell phone industry to not locate towers near schools or hospitals. And the World Health Organization reports “”many epidemiological studies have addressed possible links between exposure to RF fields and excess risk of cancer. These studies do not provide enough information to allow a proper evaluation of human cancer risk from RF exposure because the results of these studies are inconsistent.””

“”The safety of RF has not been established, nor has the necessary research been conducted to test it.”” Elizabeth Jacobsen, Director, US Dept. of Health

What is ironical is that telecom companies continue to install towers, which have a radiation power level of 7620 microwatt/m2 despite the specified level being just 600 microwatt/m2. This standard fixed by the International Commission of Non-Iodised Radiation is not being followed thanks to the competition in the market.

There is too much competition in the market and today’s consumer only asks for better network coverage. Cell phone companies contend that if they put up towers at the specified limit, then they would need at least four towers in place of one, which does not gel too well with their business.

The most common problems that one experiences due to radiation are uneasiness and headaches. However, doctors say that this could be purely psychological. Dr Sharada Bhat, a general practitioner, says that she has come across many cases where people have complained of uneasiness after talking for long hours on a mobile phone.

“I have found that in many cases it is purely physiological,” she says.

However, there are an equal number of cases in which such occurrences have happened due to the generation of heat while talking on the mobile.

The petitioners before the Kerala High Court, however, sing a different tune. They say that exposure to telecommunication towers could cause fatal diseases such as cancer and embryo disruption. It was also pointed out that there are several case studies to show people living near telecommunication towers were more prone to diseases.

Senior advocate, P N Rao says that cell phone companies will be failing in their duty if they do not tell the general public about the ill-effects of setting up towers. Every citizen under the Constitution of India has the right to life and hence he ought to know what is right and what is wrong for him.

Rao says that if any citizen has apprehensions, he should seek an explanation from the company putting up the tower and if that remedy fails then he has a right to approach the court of law.

The Central government too is looking into the matter and has constituted a panel to study the problem and report to it. The panel is expected to brief the government on the ill-effects of setting up towers and also make recommendations on how to ensure that the health of the people is safe and secure.

Ramsay said in reaching their findings the inspectors carried out radiation readings in the area at and around the tower, which were all well below the level of 1.0 micro-Sieverts per hour, which is considered to be the minimum level to warrant further investigation.

“Measurements carried indicated readings of 0.08-0.10 micro-Sieverts per hour at and around the tower and 0.09 microSieverts per hour at the Kgosi’s residence located on the hill, approximately 100m from the tower. The highest reading was recorded at the Kgotla 0.18 micro-Sieverts per hour, which is still far below the 1.0 micro-Sieverts per hour threshold”.

“All of the readings taken at Mochudi were also below the 0.22 micro-Sieverts per hour average background ionizing dose for most areas in Botswana that had been visited by the Radiation Inspectors as of June 2009″.
However, the EmagSA official has contradicted Ramsay’s statement. Muller says that comparisons with ionising radiation are not valid. “Cellphone radiation is pulsed, and it is these pulsed frequencies which interfere with biological processes,” Muller said in response.

“The radiation guidelines used are only taking into account the fact that this radiation heats tissue up. However, research has shown for example that pulsed frequencies affect brainwaves at levels corresponding to one-trillionth of the guidelines used. This is not a heating effect, the brain also works on electrical pulses,” he explained.”Other health effects such as fatigue and headaches start at one-millionth of the current guidelines, according to compilations of many research studies.

“Prof Leif Salford of Lund University in Sweden found that the blood-brain barrier – which prevents toxins from entering the brain – is damaged after only two hours of exposure at levels which correspond to that found from cellphone masts. This allows toxins into the brain, and caused permanent brain damage in rats, whose blood-brain barrier is similar to that of humans”.

“Prof Salford has said that the mass exposure of populations to microwaves is ‘the biggest experiment ever carried out on the human race’, and we are now seeing some very worrying results of this ‘experiment’,” Muller said.

Neurological Function Can Be Seriously Impaired By Radiofrequency Radiation

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.

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.

DECT Phones and German Medical Community

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:

DECT Phones Base Station Continuously Emits Pulsing Microwave Radiation

YouTube Preview Image

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

A major difference between the older cordless phone and the DECT cordless phones is that the DECT phone’s base station continuously emits pulsing microwave radiation at full power as long as the base station/charger is plugged into the 240 VAC wall socket. This means that the base station, usually placed on a bedside table, or on a work desk, is broadcasting a 2.4. or 5.8 GHz transmission (in Australia) regardless of whether the handset is charging in the base station cradle or being used 300 meters away.

In a situation where a sleeper is about half a meter away from a typical DECT phone placed on a bed side table, he or she is constantly being exposed to a pulsing microwave signal with an electrical field strength of about 6.5 Volts per meter (V/m) – the max. limit of the meter. (4) According to the manufacturer of the meter an electric field level of 6 V/m is roughly equivalent to a power density of 10 microwatts per square cm. (10uW/cm2) for continuous wave transmissions – which cannot be applied to pulsing DECT transmissions. According to a paper published by the Interphone Study group (Germany), measurements taken on DECT systems by private engineering companies in Europe have revealed power densities between 4 to 170 mW/m2 for distances of up to 3 meters from the base station. (5) This converts to 0.4 uW/cm2 to 17 uW/cm2.

These figures may appear to be insignificant in isolation but when compared to epidemiological studies / surveys that considered fatigue and sleep disruption in humans exposed to radiofrequency transmissions, cautionary advice is warranted.

Wireless Radiation Causing Health Problems in Schools?

With the new school year about to begin, a school board in central Ontario says it will continue providing wireless Internet access in classrooms despite some parents’ concerns that radiation from Wi-Fi transmissions is negatively affecting their kids’ health.

A group of parents in Simcoe County formed the Simcoe County Safe School Committee earlier this year after they became suspicious that the headaches, rashes, dizziness, insomnia, and other symptoms their children were experiencing were caused by wireless transmitters in 12 schools across the board.

The parents said the symptoms abated on the weekends when their children were home but returned as soon as the school week started.

“Parents have been in doctors’ offices trying to figure out why the kids have headaches but their eyes are fine. Parents have been in the cardiologist’s offices trying to figure out why their kids are having these rapid, racing heart-rates only at school, passing-out at school. All this stuff has been going on,” says organizer Rodney Palmer.

Palmer says his two children aged 9 and 5, who attend Mountain View Elementary School in Collingwood, experienced symptoms including fatigue, facial flushing, and moodiness that he blames on the Wi-Fi.

He says that even though “it breaks my heart,” he’s not sending his kids back to Mountain View this fall.

“I think I’m blocking out the first day of school from my emotions at this point.”

John Dance, the Simcoe District School Board’s superintendant of education, says that after the board listened to presentations from the parents, studied the research, and consulted with an expert from the University of Toronto, the decision was made to stay with wireless.

While the parents say there’s no proof that long-term exposure to electromagnetic fields from wireless transmitters is safe for young children, Dance says there’s no evidence that Wi-Fi is causing the symptoms the children are complaining of.

“We’d never had any evidence in the first place that this was attributed to wireless,” he says.

“I know that some scientists say wireless is not safe, but for every scientist so far that has said it’s not safe there are 25 that say, ‘yes, it is.’ And they’re not all in the industry.”

There could be other reasons that the children are having these symptoms, he says, noting that Wi-Fi was installed in the schools four years ago, yet the parents’ complaints only began in December 2009.

“They say that it only happened after wireless started. At the time they didn’t even know when wireless was installed in the schools.”

The school board complies with Health Canada’s guidelines on wireless Internet—guidelines that came into question at parliamentary hearings into cellular telephones in April at which several scientists from around the world testified.

Prof. Olle Johansson of the Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden told the committee that safety standards for exposure to microwave radiation in Canada and other countries are “inadequate” and need to be updated. Health Canada’s “Safety Code 6” on microwaves was written in the 1970s.

“It’s obvious that your safety code is completely out of date and obsolete and that goes for any form of international or national standard body throughout the world,” Johansson said.

While both cell phones and Wi-Fi operate on microwaves, critics note that exposure to radiation from wireless transmitters—especially in the case of children in school—usually occurs for hours at a time, not minutes as is the case with cell phones.

In an open letter to schools and parents last year, Magda Havas, an associate professor at Trent University and an expert on the health effects of electromagnetic radiation, warned that “it is irresponsible to introduce Wi-Fi microwave radiation into a school environment where young children and school employees spend hours each day.”

She added that children are more sensitive to environmental contaminants, including microwave radiation.

Palmer points to a Royal Society of Canada study commissioned by Health Canada which found that microwaves at lower levels than the agency’s own guidelines cause biological changes in cells and cross the blood-brain barrier, with children being more vulnerable.

Although parents with the Safe School Committee offered to pay to have wired Internet installed, Dance says with children moving from room to room, that would prove inconvenient.

“With wireless, we can have a laptop or a group of six laptops go where the students are, or we could have cart go in with 25 laptops. We can’t have wires to connect all of these.”

Some school board trustees have said the parents should lobby Health Canada if they want changes.

“Health Canada didn’t install the Wi-Fi system, the school board did,” counters Palmer.

40 women who have developed breast cancer working night shifts in Denmark are receiving compensation from their government

Dr Vincent Cogliano of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) said that it believed that alterations in sleep patterns caused by working nights could lower the body’s production of melatonin. “Melatonin has some beneficial effects in preventing some of the steps leading to cancer,” he told the BBC. He said that the UN agency’s finding was based on a wide range of studies. “The level of evidence is really no different than it might be for an industrial chemical,” he said. They describe night shifts as being a ‘probable’ carcinogen, the same as EMFs.

Professor Andrew Watterson, an occupational health specialist at Stirling University, said we are far behind Scandinavia in recognising the dangers of night work. “I think we can say there is a big public health problem here,” he said.

In our article on melatonin, we cite some of the studies which link melatonin levels with reduced cancer risk, including breast cancer. Melatonin is a natural anti-cancer agent in the body, but the body can stop producing it when exposed to light at night. Melatonin is produced at night in conditions of darkness, and light switches off the pineal gland’s ability to produce melatonin. Exposure to other types of electromagnetic fields (of which light is one) can also reduce pineal melatonin.

Mobile Phone Masts More Of A Problem Than Cell Phones

Aircom Headsets

A recent Swiss study shows that the general public’s RF exposure comes more from masts than from mobile phones, with DECT phones running a close third.

Frei et al (May 2009) produced a study looking at RF exposure experienced by the general population. About one third (32.0%) came from mobile phone masts, mobile phones were responsible for 29.1%, and DECT phones 22.7%.

This means that studies (such as the 13-country Interphone study investigating RF exposure and potential health effects resulting from such exposure) as a result of using mobile phones alone, without allowing for masts and cordless phone usage is flawed, and does not reflect reality. Masts and DECT phones account for more than 70% of people’s of people’s exposure to RF.

Alarm bells sounded by the National Institute for Science, Law and Public Policy to alert legislators and journalists about the hazards of DECT phones and WiFi.

Prof. Magda Havas, a prominent researcher and voice advising caution in the use of wireless technologies, reviews the independent science on the health hazards of wireless radiation.
