NEW SANTA FE COUNTY CODE ALLOWS CELL TOWERS WITH NO APPLICATIONS, NO GUIDELINES, NO PROTECTIONS FOR FALLING ON NEIGHBOR’S HOMES OR PROPERTIES

PLEASE TAKE 5 MINUTES TO SAVE LIVES AND PROPERTY IN SANTA FE --1 tower falls every month and 1 cell tower erupts into flames every three months--WITH NO SETBACKS OR LAWS RULING CONSTRUCTION, this could fall on your home or family. Please email the answer to this problem if you cannot meet with the Commissioner before they pass this new code. Tuesday, September 23, 2014, at 6 p.m., Santa Fe County Fairgrounds

See Video: Swirling Snow Doesn’t Stop Gonzales Parents Picket Against Tower

FOR VIDEO: http://youtu.be/lBTBoMuLTkQ On Friday, February 22, despite the swirling snow and wintry winds, approximately fifty plus parents, their children, and neighbors took up picket signs outside the Burger King, next to their children's Gonzales Community School, protesting a cell tower planned by AT&T. As their petition states, not only could a cell tower explode or fall into the three gas pumps located at the Burger King, but a narrow arroyo filled with dry trees and brush is all that separates the land owned by Tom McCullum from the Gonzales School campus. Channel 7 ABC arrived with cameras rolling and interviewed four neighborhood parents and protestors. DID ANY FOOTAGE MAKE IT ONTO CHANNEL 7 NEWS? No, and not surprising as most media coverage seems strangely silent. The New Mexican mustered a 2 1/2 inch photograph and two sentences about the picket, featured on page 10A.

Santa Fe School Board Unanimous: No Cell Tower by Gonzales School

At its March 19 meeting, the Santa Fe School Board unanimously approved a resolution opposing plans to site a cellphone tower next to Gonzales Community School. At least one board member, Steven Carrillo, said he was unconvinced until he heard community members speak at the meeting. Federal telecommunications laws favor the industry, leaving local communities with few avenues for challenging tower placement and proliferation. Tuesday’s resolution was directed to the Santa Fe Historic Review Board. Because the proposed tower site is within the city’s historic district, the review board can nix the plan on “esthetic” grounds.

LOS ANGELES SCHOOL DISTRICT: WiFi sends teacher into cardiac arrest, students bleeding from ears and nose

“Students were bleeding from the ears and nose and no incident reports were allowed by the school,” states the teacher who required cardiac medical intervention. Her doctor explained that those with mercury fillings suffer more effects from WiFi. She asks officials to listen to her students own reports of illness since the WiFi was turned on. Professor Olle Johansson, Karolinksa Institute, Stockholm Sweden, has stated that wireless radiation exposure studies have indicated “irreversible sterility within five generations.”

Over 1 Million Members of Teachers Unions in Germany, UK, USA and Canada Who Have Done Their Research Do Not Support WiFi in Schools

EdTech companies keep pushing for MORE wireless in classrooms, saying RF/EMF is safe when official agencies lack long-term data of health impact from exposure on children. All these unions are informed about the health risks of WiFi and cellphones and are fighting to protect the health of their adult members in the workplace. Why would school boards choose to increase the exposure to school children?

RALPH NADER RIPS SMART METERS

"Smart meters are one of many examples of how the constitutional right to privacy, which often is associated also with health, safety, security manifestations, is being eroded, step by step, coercively. "The propaganda is overwhelming on one side. Oh, here are the great benefits; they never mention the hazards." "It's just one more step toward technological despotism that corporations and government collude under various false arguments."

Wash.DC Group Fights Cell Towers on School Grounds

WASHINGTON -- More and more cellphone towers are going up on the grounds of schools, but a new group has formed to fight the trend in the D.C. region. Citizens, homeowners and parents from Montgomery, Prince George's, Anne Arundel and Baltimore counties have formed a group called the Maryland Coalition Against Cell Towers on Schools. They want all cellphone tower construction on school grounds in the state to stop immediately.

New study: direct link to 7,191 cancer deaths from cellular antennas radiation

The study established a direct link between cancer deaths in Belo Horizonte, the third largest city, with the antennae of the mobile telephone network, reported in Science Hoje site, the news portal of the Brazilian Society for Progress Science (Sociedad Brasileña para el Progreso de la Ciencia.) According to the study, more than 81 percent of people who die in Belo Horizonte by specific types of cancer live less than 500 meters away from the 300 identified cell phone antennas in the city. Scientists found between 1996 and 2006 in Belo Horizonte, a total of 4924 victims within 500 meters and 7191 within 1000 meters died of cancer types that may be caused by electromagnetic radiation, such as tumors in the prostate, breast, lung, kidneys and liver.

SCIENCE: Cell tower radiation increases risk of brain cancer

Busting the myths about lack of evidence on harm caused by cellphone radiation, Finnish scientist Dariusz Leszczynski on Friday said that long-term exposure to cellphone and cell tower radiation, on an average of thirty minutes a day over ten years, causes an increased risk of brain cancer.

EMF Real Estate Survey Results: “Neighborhood Cell Towers & Antennas— They Do Impact a Property’s Desirability!”

95% said they would opt to buy or rent a property that had zero antennas on the building over a comparable property that had several antennas on the building. “I own several properties in Santa Fe, NM and believe me, I have taken care not to buy near cell towers. Most of these are rental properties and I think I would have a harder time renting those units… were a cell tower or antenna nearby. Though I have not noticed any negative health effects myself, I know many people are affected. And in addition, these antennas and towers are often extremely ugly–despite the attempt in our town of hiding them as chimneys or fake trees.” 79% said under no circumstances would they ever purchase or rent a property within a few blocks of a cell tower or antennas. 88% said that under no circumstances would they ever purchase or rent a property with a cell tower or group of antennas on top of, or attached to, the apartment building.

US: Frontal & temporal lobe cancers increased from 1992-2006

This is consistent with the increasing use of cordless phones as well as cell phones by the population. Hardell's case-control research on mobile phone use and brain cancer suggests that cordless phone use may be as harmful as cell phone use, and that tumors are more likely to occur in the frontal and temporal lobes than in other parts of the brain.

‘SMART’ LIGHTBULBS REVEAL WiFi PASSWORDS

Researchers have found a way to reveal Wi-Fi passwords by hacking mobile phone controlled LED “smart” lights. The discovery highlights the inherent danger in having countless home appliances connected to the Internet – as experts predict as many as 50 such devices in the average home by 2022 . Other lights such as the Phillips Hue were successfully hacked last year as well.

Brain and eye deformation in embryos exposed to cell phone calls, 4 x/day, only 15 minutes

"It was concluded that mobile phone electromagnetic waves (900MHz- 1800MHz) might induce embryonic eye growth till 10 days of incubation, and then it might cause brain malformation with reduced body and eye growth in chick embryo. Congenital malformations were seen in treated embryos (bigger embryos, subcutaneous bleeding, and brain malformation) compared to the controls. "

EU-IU presentará una moción en contra del Proyecto de Ley General de Telecomunicaciones

El grupo municipal de EU-IU en el Concello de Ferrol presentará en la sesión plenaria de este jueves una moción en contra del Proyecto de Ley General de Telecomunicaciones, al considerarlo un «perigo para a saúde pública» y un «beneficio só para as grandes empresas». La propuesta está motivada desde la Plataforma Estatal Contra la Contaminación Electromagnética (PECCEM), una entidad compuesta por movimientos vecinales, ecologistas, personas afectadas y electrosensibles, así como organizaciones de defensa de la salud pública.

ITALY: Electrosmog, pediatricians alarmed: ‘Ban the cellphone to children under 10 years’ old

This alarm that will result as soon as possible in "guidelines to limit as much as possible the use of mobile phones to children, avoiding completely the use of up to 10 years and limiting, with proper precautions, use even for older ages". Article in English & Italian "Mobile phones,”said Sapia, “are two-way radios that rely upon the ear to talk and there is evidence that the interaction of electromagnetic fields with human biological systems causes a localized increase in body temperature. Very prolonged exposures can cause tissue necrosis (cell death)."

10 Reasons Why Handheld Devices Should Be Banned for Children Under the Age of 12

TV and video game use correlates with increased obesity (Tremblay 2005). Children who are allowed a device in their bedrooms have 30% increased incidence of obesity Technology overuse is implicated as a causal factor in rising rates of child depression, anxiety, attachment disorder, attention deficit, autism, bipolar disorder, psychosis and problematic child behavior

Senator calls for cell phones with warning labels

"This is the first generation to have kids from age 10 up to adulthood with cell phones right next to their heads and brains. Brains are developing up to age 22 to 25, so I think we have to be safe," stated Green. To raise awareness of RF exposure, Green introduced a measure calling for cell phones sold in Hawaii to come with a prominent warning -- similar to what smokers see on the sides of cigarette packages.

ISRAELI ARABS DESTROYING CELL TOWERS AND ANTENNAS AFTER SEEING CANCER CLUSTERS

After removing several antennas from the heart of the neighborhoods, the business owners agreed to put them in the industrial zone. The residents fight them too. A resident said: "We live close to the industrial zone. I know 13 cancer patients only from the last year and all of them live in the neighborhoods near the industrial zone. Two of them died. We fight to remove the antennas from the city."

Teléfonos Celulares y Salud por Dr. Joel Moskowitz

“Los niños se ven desproporcionadamente afectados… Las diferencias en la densidad ósea y la cantidad de líquido en el cerebro de un niño en comparación con el cerebro de un adulto podrían permitir que los niños absorban más profundamente en sus cerebros cantidades mayores de energía de RF (radiofrecuencia) que los adultos. Es esencial que las nuevas normas para los teléfonos móviles u otros dispositivos inalámbricos se basen en la protección de las poblaciones más jóvenes y más vulnerables para asegurar que estén protegidos a lo largo de sus vidas".

UK: Why I want a microchip implant

All of this may sound very “cool” to a lot of people. But what happens if we are all required to have “electronic identity tattoos” someday? What happens if an oppressive government uses this technology to watch, track, monitor and control all of us 24 hours a day with this technology? What happens if you are not able to get a job, have a bank account or buy anything without “proper identification”? I think that you can see where I am going with this. Technology is truly a double-edged sword. It can do great good, but it can also be used for great evil.

Cellphone Use by Children & Teens = 5 Times Increase in Brain Cancer

A scholarly article on cell phone safety published online in the journal Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine reported the finding that cell phones used in the shirt or pants pocket exceed the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) exposure guidelines and that children absorb twice as much microwave radiation from phones as do adults.

SCIENCE:MOBILE PHONE AFFECTS CEREBRAL BLOOD FLOW IN HUMANS

Our results provide the first evidence, suggesting that the EMF emitted by a commercial mobile phone affects rCBF in humans. These results are consistent with the postulation that EMF induces changes in neuronal activity. Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism

Study puts glare back on cell tower risks

Cell phone towers in Kolkata have been taking a heavy toll on the health of people living close to them. It could be triggering a range of disorders from fatigue, memory loss, headache and hearing impairment to more serious ones like cardiac problems and even congenital defects, claims the study conducted by researchers of the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Cancer Research Institute (NSCRI).

Boy dies of brain tumor from exposure to WiFi iPod

"Ethan was diagnosed with 2 brain tumors three months after he was given a wi-fi-connected iPod. His parents later discovered he had been falling asleep with it under his pillow. Even though it was on standby, it was still emitting bursts of radiation as it tried to connect to the router, Mr Wyman said. Doctors who saw Ethan said the tumors appeared to be about four months old, Mr Wyman said. He died, aged 10, less than a year after diagnosis last August."

The AAEM States “The Evidence is Irrefutable.” Smart Meters Correlate with Adverse Health Effects

AAEM physicians and physicians world-wide are treating patients who report adverse, debilitating health effects following the installation of smart meters, which emit electromagnetic frequencies (EMF) and radiofrequencies (RF). The peer reviewed, scientific literature demonstrates the correlation between EMF/RF exposure and neurological, cardiac, and pulmonary disease as well as reproductive disorders, immune dysfunction, cancer and other health conditions. The evidence is irrefutable. Despite this research, claims have been made that studies correlating smart meter emissions with adverse health effects do not exist.

SCIENCE: Electronic Devices Suppress Melatonin

Suppression of melatonin by light at night resulting in circadian disruption has been implicated in sleep disturbances, increased risk for diabetes and obesity, as well as increased risk for more serious diseases, such as breast cancer, if circadian disruption occurs for many consecutive years, such as in nightshift workers.

Teen Suicides ‘linked to phone masts’

Dr Roger Coghill, who sits on a Government advisory committee on mobile radiation, has discovered that all 22 youngsters who have killed themselves in Bridgend, South Wales, over the past 18 months lived far closer than average to a mast. Research shows young people’s brains are more susceptible to radio wave energy. Only two weeks ago a report identified mobiles as having an effect on sleep patterns. Dr Coghill added: “What seems to be happening is that the electrical energy is having an effect on the chemistry of the brain, depleting serotonin levels. We know that in depression serotonin levels are low and that a standard treatment for depression is to give drugs to boost serotonin levels. As they begin to work, the patient’s depression lifts.”

Medical Info Convinces Oregon Utility Board to Votes for “Opt-In” on Smart Meters, No fines for saying “No thanks!”

Only customers who say they want the new so-called smart meters will get them....Those who worry about the health effects of smart meter transmissions won’t have to do anything to avoid unwanted exposure. Those who fear that smart meters will lead to a loss of privacy can keep the meters they have now. VIDEO of medical presentation.
Orjan and Olle’s 2004 and 2005 studies confirmed these findings. [2,3] Focusing this time on melanoma skin cancer and what happened in the separate counties within Sweden, they discovered the same strong links. They also concluded that:

there was a stronger link between developing melanoma and exposure to electromagnetic waves from FM transmitter towers than with exposure to ultraviolet radiation.

continuous disturbance of cell repair mechanisms by electromagnetic fields seemed to amplify the carcinogenic cell damage caused by other factors like ultraviolet radiation.

Doctors Warn: Toddlers Using Smartphones, Tablets Are Developmentally Delayed

‘What we’re seeing is a lot of children coming in with some motor delays, some decreased muscle strength in areas.’ Experts say the problem is that the technology is so new researchers do not know what damage it might cause in the long run. Dr Timothy Doran, a pediatrician at Greater Baltimore Medical Center, told CBS Local: ‘Unlimited use, three to four hours of iPad use on their own — where the parents aren’t involved — seems to me that you are flirting with developmental danger.’

CHIPPED PETS DEVELOP FAST-GROWING, LETHAL TUMORS

"Scotty is just a baby. He won't live the 15 years he's supposed to ...I did something I thought a responsible pet owner should --- microchip your pet --- and to think that it killed him ... It just breaks your heart." A tumor between the dog's shoulder blades --- precisely where a microchip had been embedded --- was described as malignant lymphoma. A tumor the size of a small balloon was removed; encased in it was a microchip. In 2007, The Associated Press reported on a series of veterinary and toxicology studies that found that microchip implants had "induced" malignant tumors in some lab animals. Scotty was given no more than a year to live..

Exposure to microwaves from cellphones results in nerve cell damage

We have previously shown that weak pulsed microwaves give rise to a significant leakage of albumin through the blood-brain barrier. In this study we investigated whether a pathologic leakage across the blood-brain barrier might be combined with damage to the neurons. We found highly significant (p< 0.002) evidence for neuronal damage in the cortex, hippocampus, and basal ganglia in the brains of exposed rats.

Motorola wants to tattoo a smartphone receiver on your neck

BACKGROUND: Neurologists have grave concerns about placing a microwave-emitting sensor at the base of the skull where the brain's centers for vision, balance, and all the senses are located. Research has shown the use of cellphones for only 10 minutes a day for a period of ten years is enough to raise the dangers of brain tumors 2 -5 times - What will happen to persons wearing this device 24/7? THE DEPT HEAD AT MOTOROLA FORMERLY WORKED AT THE PENTAGON, Dugan, who used to be head of the US Pentagon's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, explained that each signal emitted could be unique to each user.

US Doctors Urge Parents Ban Cellphones, Internet In Kid’s Bedrooms, But Industry Marketers Celebrate 2 year-olds Using It In Cribs

Children and teenagers who use cellphones and Internet-enabled devices in their bedrooms at night are at higher risk of bullying, anxiety and other mental disorders, and also for obesity, U.S. pediatricians claim in a policy shift of what they recommend to parents on media use in kids' nighttime routines. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that parents should bar all screen time, including mobile devices, for children under 2, but Steyer believes that's a conservative suggestion. When tablets and smartphones are used responsibly, and both time used and content is monitored, devices can serve many educational purposes. (Gee, not a doctor but he knows better than the national Academy of Pediatricians and the World Health Organization's findings that children are more vulnerable to the radiation in cellphones, WiFi, baby monitors.)

Cellphone use ‘raises children’s risk of brain cancer five-fold’

It sprung from a further analysis of data from one of the biggest studies carried out into the risk that the radiation causes cancer, headed by Professor Lennart Hardell of the University Hospital in Orebro, Sweden. Professor Hardell told the conference – held at the Royal Society by the Radiation Research Trust – that "people who started mobile phone use before the age of 20" had more than five-fold increase in glioma", a cancer of the glial cells that support the central nervous system. The extra risk to young people of contracting the disease from using the cordless phone found in many homes was almost as great, at more than four times higher.

‘Smartphones may raise myopia risk’

Smartphones are causing sight problems to soar in children as young as seven, a top UK eye surgeon has warned. Since the launch of smartphones in 1997 there has been a 35 per cent increase in patients with advancing myopia (short-sightedness), according to David Allamby, a leading laser eye surgeon in the UK. Allamby, founder of Focus Clinics, has warned that myopia in young adults and children could increase by 50 per cent within the next 10 years and the trend has led him to dub the condition "screen sightedness".

34 Papers finding adverse biological effects or damage to health from Wi-Fi signals, Wi-Fi-enabled devices or Wi-Fi frequencies (2.4 or 5 GHz)

Papers listed are only those where exposures were 16V/m or below. Someone using a Wi-Fi-enabled tablet computer can be exposed to electromagnetic fields up to 16V/m

Pre-teens at risk from cordless phones

The research, to be published in the Environmental Health Journal this week, also found high users of cordless phones more commonly experienced tinnitus, or ringing in their ears. "The highest category of use - over half an hour a day - in many studies has shown an increased risk of glioma, a malignant [brain or spine] tumour that is often fatal. Several studies have also shown an increased risk of acoustic neuroma - a little tumour on the nerve between the ear and the brain."

SCIENCE: Study Indicates Ultrasound Causes Brain Damage in Fetuses

This study shows that ultrasound waves directed at a fetus interfere with brain development by causing displacement of neurons. Such displacement is known to result in behavioral problems and are either known or suspected of causing other neurological problems. Dr. Rakic and his team have produced a powerful study that clearly demonstrates brain damage produced by ultrasound. This prenatal test has become so routine that some doctors do screenings at every visit.

Navy Shooter Exposed to Brain Toxins As 9/11 Rescuer, Possibly Made Electrically Sensitive

Aaron Alexis was a computer programmer. He would have been exposed to low level electromagnetic fields for hours on a daily basis. He most certainly was experiencing brain toxicity and had been exposed to toxins that could have made his nervous system hypersensitive to electromagnetic fields – unable to sleep, feeling vibrations, driven over the edge. Is it possible that Alexis was delusional not because of a psychiatric condition, but was neurotoxic and electromagnetically sensitive? Dr. Dean is dedicated to finding and treating the cause of disease, which is often rooted in the environment. She is board certified in environmental medicine and internal medicine. She is president of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine. [Research links in post.]

Why in Switzerland: Teachers Vote to Keep Wi-Fi Out of School

On what basis did the opposition develop their anti-wi-fi argument? “On certain scientific research as well as policy developments,” replies Patrick Hermann. “To be brief, at the scientific level, apparently, waves from wi-fi are of the micro-wave type. And even if their intensity is relatively low, their impact is significant. Waves penetrate several centimeters into the human body.” He adds that the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of WHO has classified electromagnetic radiofrequency fields as possibly carcinogenic for humans, on the basis of an increased risk of glioma, a type of malignant brain cancer, associated with use of mobile phones.

Cellphones, Wifi and Smart Meters declared Class 2B: Possible Human Carcinogen by W.H.O.

The principal author of the 2011 World Health Organization IARC Monograph on the carcinogenicity of radiofrequency radiation explains the 2B classification of RFR as applicable to all form of RFR exposures, including Smart Meters and Wi-Fi: "So the classification 2B, possibly carcinogenic, holds for all types of radiation within the radiofrequency part of the electromagnetic spectrum, including the radiation emitted by base-station antennas, radio/TV towers, radar, Wi-Fi, smart meters, etc.

[Former Test Pilot and Founder of AirSafe.com] Reportedly, there have been separate incidents of two pilots fainting while in flight, apparently on aircraft with wi-fi installations. This could be a huge red flag. That sort of event in the air, with individual pilots being incapacitated, isn't consistently reported in the US because there is no clear legal or regulatory requirement to do so.

[Cardiologist Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D., F.A.C.C.] We know that the heart is sensitive to, and can be adversely affected by, the same frequency used for WiFi (2.4 GHz) at levels a fraction of federal guidelines (less than 1%). I would like to see tests on pilots for potential cardiac and cognitive effects..

Not only does low-level RF radiation interfere with the proper functioning of the human body, avionics systems are not immune, either. For example, an aircraft wireless terminal was found to interfere with a ground base station even from a distance of 286 km (Moraitis 2010). In a worst case scenario, Honeywell display units on a Boeing 737NG went blank during EMI certification testing of Wi-Fi systems (Boeing 2011).

Since aircrafts are metal enclosures, any wireless transmitter such as Wi-Fi-enabled laptops and Smart phones as well as Wi-Fi access points operating on the inside will cause an exponential increase in RF radiation exposure.

45,000 LA Teachers Protect Schools from Electromagnetic Radiation

Despite government agencies still saying that radiofrequency (rF) electromagnetic radiation is “safe”, the vast majority of independent science is showing, more than ever, that low-level chronic exposure causes health damage and disease. In addition, an alarming number of individuals – including a growing mega-list of children in schools – are experiencing symptoms of ill health caused by radiation exposure. The sheer number of individuals reporting health effects, and the sheer number of published papers reporting health effects, are creating a critical situation which can no longer be ignored.

Wikipedia says neuromarketing is a new field of marketing research that studies consumers’ sensorimotor, cognitive, and affective response to marketing stimuli. So the Gates Foundation joins Google, CB S, and Frito-Lay in looking for ways to measure consumer reactions to products. Put a Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) bracelet on every kid in the class and you can measure teacher effectiveness in keeping their attention.
On what basis did the opposition develop their anti-wi-fi argument? “On certain scientific research as well as policy developments,” replies Patrick Hermann. “To be brief, at the scientific level, apparently, waves from wi-fi are of the micro-wave type. And even if their intensity is relatively low, their impact is significant. Waves penetrate several centimeters into the human body.”

He adds that the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of WHO has classified electromagnetic radiofrequency fields as possibly carcinogenic for humans, on the basis of an increased risk of glioma, a type of malignant brain cancer, associated with use of mobile phones.

76,000 TEACHERS VOTE CELL PHONES TURNED OFF IN CLASSROOMS

The vote was part of a series of motions requesting that radiation from cell phones and WiFi be recognized as a potential workplace hazard for teachers. "There is cause for concern for members' health and safety, especially women," said Sandra Wash, a teacher representing Peel District who spoke at the meeting. Two years ago the World Health Organization officially declared wireless radiation from cell phones and WiFi to be a possible Carcinogen. A second vote yesterday afternoon demanded that school Boards stop hiding WiFi transmitters in the ceiling, and label them as part of a hazard control program.
Googling a very simple phrase led me to a list of “smart homes” that had done something rather stupid….Their systems had been made crawl-able by search engines….Opening a garage door could make a house ripe for actual physical intrusion….So if you can manage to get on someone’s Wi-Fi network – which is easy if they have no password on it – you could take control of their home.

SCIENCE: Heavy Cellphone Users Saliva Shows Higher Risk Factors for Cancer

Comparing heavy mobile phone users to non-users, they found that the saliva of heavy users showed indications of higher oxidative stress – a process that damages all aspects of a human cell, including DNA—through the development of toxic peroxide and free radicals. More importantly, it is considered a major risk factor for cancer. Crofton compares the situation to how the delayed response of asbestos in America. “It took a hundred years for regulators to respond to that crisis, but the threat from not just cell phones, but WiFi networks and cell towers is immediate and widespread,” she said.

Naresh K. Panda, MS, DNB, chairman of the department of ear, nose, and throat at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research in Chandigarh, India presented the findings Wednesday at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Otolaryngology -- Head and Neck Surgery in Washington. His team found that people who had talked on cell phones for more than four years and those who talked more than an hour daily were more likely to have these high-frequency losses. These losses can make it difficult to hear consonants such as s, f, t and z, making it hard to understand words.

Cell Tower Goes Up in Flames as Workers Rappel to Safety

Firefighters responded to the scene but, after consulting with engineers, kept their distance as the tower began to list to one side. “There was an assisted living facility, some houses and a highly populated playground nearby that we had to evacuate,” Harran said. “If the tower did come crashing down with all the equipment on top, it could have exploded on impact and sent shrapnel much further than 300 feet. We just wanted to be cautious.”
When the organism’s homeostatic increasing incidence of burnout due to magnetic and electromagnetic fields of cell phone networks and other wireless communication technologies balance is tipped in favor of oxidative processes, we speak of oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is associated, among others, with the aging of cells. Radio-frequency electromagnec fields (RF-EMF) interfere with cell processes:
• RF-EMFs produce excessive cell-damaging free radicals and strongly reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, which in turn can damage the DNA (see below).
• The body’s own defense in the form of endogenous radical scavengers (antioxidants) is weakened by RFEMFs (see below).
• The repair of DNA damage is impaired (BELYAEV et al.
2005).
• RF-EMFs interfere with the center of our metabolism,
the mitochondria, and thus interfere with our energy
producon: ATP producon is inhibited (SANDERS et
al. 1980, 1984, 1985).
• The decrease in ATP producon debilitates the entire

CA State PUC OKs SmartMeter refusal – for a price

In a bid to ease opposition to Pacific Gas and Electric Co. SmartMeters, California regulators voted Wednesday to let the company's customers keep their old analog electricity and gas meters if they choose. The opt-out program approved Wednesday requires PG&E customers to pay a one-time fee of $75, plus monthly charges of $10, to hold on to their old meters. PG&E initially wanted $270 up front and $14 per month. Low-income customers enrolled in the CARE program (California Alternate Rates for Energy) will face an initial fee of $10 and a monthly charge of $5.

Infants given iPads as toys = dangerous health risks

The manual warns that if a user does not handle the iPad exactly as instructed, the radiation level will exceed governments' exposure limits. Children are targeted for the marketing of such devices, but the safety warning is buried inside an online manual. Without awareness of the warning, parents let children handle the iPads as below. The iPad is often placed on the children's laps, against their reproductive organs, or in their hands which are touching the antennas. Instead of treating the iPads as radiofrequency transmitters and receivers as declared in the user manual, parents and children treat them as toys.

Cell Phone Report: Children and Pregnant Women Require More Protection

John Wargo, Ph.D., professor of Environmental Risk and Policy at Yale University and lead author of the report, said, “The scientific evidence is sufficiently robust showing that cellular devices pose significant health risks to children and pregnant women." Frequent texting means cell phones are often kept in a pocket all day and under a pillow or on a teenager's bed at night. Exposures to electromagnetic radiation are increasing most rapidly among the youngest in our society, as service providers focus their advertising on children and educational markets.”

State Rep / Radiation Specialist Says Cell Towers Could Pose Threat to Children

"Placing cell towers on school property unnecessarily places our children in potential danger and could even be viewed as experimenting with our children’s health. I am strongly committed to stopping these efforts to put cell phone towers on school property." Drenner, however, has a background in radiation physics and said she believes the school system didn't act with necessary caution approving the deal.

Police Officer Develops Brain Tumor from Mobile Communications Radiation

"I am 100 percent sure the skin rashes are due to radiation from Rachel (wireless communications equipment) and I strongly suspect that it caused the tumor as well." The fact that the radio system is mainly used in vehicles is what worries Roger Carlstrom. "The waves bounce off the roof and back at the user with an effect that is perhaps ten times more powerful than a GSM phone," says Roger Carlstrom. "I think that the radio system that works with pulsed microwaves should be banned until it is considered how dangerous they might be."

National Physicians Board Opposes Smart Meters Due to Health Threats

"The current medical literature raises credible questions about genetic and cellular effects, hormonal effects, male fertility, blood/brain barrier damage and increased risk of certain types of cancers from RF or ELF levels similar to those emitted from "smart meters". Children are placed at particular risk for altered brain development, and impaired learning and behavior... Existing safety limits for pulsed RF were termed "not protective of public health" by the Radiofrequency Interagency Working Group (a federal interagency working group including the FDA, FCC, OSHA, the EPA and others). Hence, we call for: • An immediate moratorium on "smart meter" installation until these serious public health issues are resolved. Continuing with their installation would be extremely irresponsible. • Modify the revised proposed decision to include hearings on health impact in the second proceedings, along with cost evaluation and community wide opt-out. • Provide immediate relief to those requesting it and restore the analog meters."

Snowstorm Highlights Major Weakness in Wireless Cell Phone System in Connecticut

Unlike the hardwired phone system built by Southern New England Telephone Co. over the decades since the telephone was invented, and that has centralized battery backup systems, each cell tower and switching station of the cell phone system operates independently and must have its own power source to operate if the electric grid fails. With cell towers having no backup power in many areas of the state, those who have come to rely on its convenience found no signal bars on their phones, fully charged or otherwise. It wasn’t just personal calls that weren’t going through, the 911-system also took a hit.

PubMed NCBI NIH Abstract 
A survey of neurovegetative and hematologic disorders was conducted in a population (n = 13) exposed occupationally to environmental electromagnetic fields; the population was matched with 13 control subjects. The exposed subjects worked at least 8 h/d for 1-5 y in premises located above transformers and high-tension cables, and the subjects were submitted to low-frequency electromagnetic fields (i.e., 50 Hz) of 0.2 microT-6.6 microT. 

The exposed population had a significant increase in degree of certain neurovegetative disorders (i.e., physical fatigue, psychical asthenia, lipothymia, decreased libido, melancholy, depressive tendency, and irritability). In addition, the population experienced a significant fall in total lymphocytes. Leukopenia and neutropenia were also observed in two persons permanently exposed to doses of 1.2-6.6 microT. The disorders disappeared when exposure stopped, and they reappeared on re-exposure.

NEW RESEARCH: Brain Tumor Pandemic—DNA Impacts from Mobile Phones Implicated in New Analysis

Neurology & Neurophysiology Journal, 12/24/11:...The study raises very serious concerns about the potential for a large increase in brain cancer incidence, resulting from widespread mobile phone use. These preliminary findings suggest that we should prepare for about a doubled brain cancer incidence rate and possibly as high as 25 times the incidence we have today. One result of such a worldwide increase in brain cancers would be a dramatic shortage of neurosurgeons leading to increased mortality. Any statement about harmless cell phones based on only 5-10 years of years of use has no scientific basis due to the long latency times involved.

“I always wanted the latest greatest thing,” he told MainStreet. “I always liked having new gadgets.” Cobb explained he’s right-handed, and almost always presses the phone against that side of his head. Sure enough, the brain tumor was on the right side of his brain.
At a 10-foot distance, the whole body exposure to radio frequency from a smart meter may be up to 80 times higher than the whole body radio frequency exposure from a cellphone... "It's a large experiment on a very large population and a big chunk of that experiment is involuntary." ....Olle Johansson, professor in the Department of Neuroscience at Sweden's Karolinska Institute, issued a press release stating that "the combined effect of cell phones, cordless phones, cell towers, WiFi and wireless Internet place billions of people around the world at risk for cancer, neurological disease and reproductive and developmental impairments."

Until now it was believed that using a mobile phone for more than 30 minutes daily (over 8 to 10 years) would put the user at an increased risk of cancer. However, a group of experts has interpreted the international Interphone study report and claimed that ....using mobile phones for more than four minutes daily or two hours per month (over 10 years of use) increases risk of cancer and other health hazards.

Flores Family Flees Smart Meter Health Problems

A Smart Meter health scare has driven residents from their homes amid fears they are being exposed to high levels of electromagnetic radiation. A young family and another resident have fled the Keilor East street, claiming constant headaches and sleep deprivation is making their lives a misery, but authorities say the controversial devices are safe.
The results of this study provide evidence for an association between cumulative exposure of extremely low-frequency EMFs and suicide, especially among younger workers. We hypothesize that an increased vulnerability at younger ages may be based on a change in the nature of depression with age, with suicide more closely linked to depression among younger workers and physical impairments among older workers.

TECH INDUSTRY INSIDERS WARN OF WIRELESS HEALTH RISKS

“In the late 1990s, when some of the first data-transmission technologies were being developed, I had a conversation with an RF engineer. He told me, off the record, that he and other engineers were very concerned about at least one of the technologies being used in cell phone transmission—there were insane amounts of radio-frequency power coming out right next to people’s heads. That’s how long people in this field have known there is something wrong, and have not been able to say a word.”

PARIS TACKLES RADIATION FROM THE ROOFS

Despite the uncertainty of any imminent health risks, the 186 current cellular towers which spike the skyline of Paris may soon be removed. Deputy Mayor Mao Péninou told Le Monde, “We are also looking at legal options for the facilities currently in place. They are no longer serving as experiment sites, so we will see how we can legally dismantle them.”
As part of the study, Stamatakis and colleagues discovered a 48% increased mortality risk in those spending four or more hours per day watching TV, playing video games, or using computers. In terms of cardiovascular-related ailments, those individuals experienced a nearly 125% increased risk of occurrence, independent of other risk factors like smoking, obesity, and high-blood pressure.

INDIA: No cell towers near homes, schools, hospitals

As far as mobile towers are concerned they recommended radiation norms which are ten times as strict as the existing ones (US standards) -- Pilot said, "We are not going to compromise with radiation limits since it has health-related concerns. The department of telecommunications set up an Inter Ministerial 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 has recommended radiation limits more stringent than that of the United Nations."
The rest of the world is acknowledging the danger of this radiation and other countries are taking steps to protect children by removing WiFi from schools. As those markets dry up overseas, there is a mad rush by industry to get WiFi into schools throughout the U.S. 

The result is our children are essentially being sacrificed for corporate profits and we are all being exploited because of our ignorance about the dangers of this completely unnecessary technology. WiFi may be more convenient, but what is the price of convenience?

A link between this technology and cancer would prove an economic as well as a medical catastrophe. So what can investors can do about it? 

For starters, investors should be monitoring the medical data and keeping up with the latest developments. They should be demanding that the mobile companies do everything they can to research the risks - and mitigate them. There is no point in simply denying that such a risk exists, in the way that the tobacco industry did for decades.

Beyond Brain Cancer: Other Possible Dangers Of Cell Phones

by Devra Davis, Ph.D. President and Founder, Environmental Health Trust, lecturer, San Francisco, London "Fortune magazine asks: If cell phones caused brain cancer, then why don't we face an epidemic now?...Survivors of the atomic bombs that fell on Japan experienced no increase at all in brain cancer until four decades after the war's end....In contrast, every major study ever conducted has found that those who use cell phones half an hour a day or more have a doubled risk of brain cancer, and those who began using cell phones as teenagers have four to five times more disease in less than 10 years. The World Health Organization (WHO) joins with medical specialists in Israel, Finland, France, Russia, India and Brazil, all of whom agree that cell phone radiation should be reduced now, rather than waiting for the deadly confirmation we received with tobacco and asbestos."

Your best bet is to use the speakerphone feature or a wired headset. Choose one with a ferrite bead to absorb radiation

A hollow tube headset is another good choice. Bluetooth earpieces will expose you to some radiation. However, they emit much less radiation than phones.

A Bluetooth headset's SAR will fall between 1 milliwatt per kilogram and 100 mW/kg. There are three classes of Bluetooth headsets. Class 3 has the lowest SAR; Class 1 has the highest. If you use a Bluetooth headset, remove it from your ear when not using it.

Late last week, the Federal Aviation Administration alerted pilots that “the GPS signal may be unreliable or unavailable” within a nearly 300-mile radius of Boulder City, where the test transmitter will be located, from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. local time daily from Monday to May 27.

Nellis Air Force Base has plans for two military exercises during the period in which the testing is to take place involving air support units that rely on the use of GPS technology.

“Anything that affects operations is of concern,” said Nellis spokesman Charles Ramey. “We rely heavily on GPS to accomplish our mission.”

"Flight attendants tell you to turn off your cellphones and your Kindles and whatever else because it may interfere the plane's electronics ... and yet I got this notice from FAA that somebody is going to do exactly the same thing, which is interfere with the navigation of the airplane," said John Gadzinski, an airline captain and aviation safety consultant.

Kumar, who has done extensive research on cell phone radiation and its
effects warns:

- A 400% increase in the risk of brain cancer among for teenagers using cell phones. Children are more vulnerable to cell phone radiation. The younger the child, the deeper is the penetration of electromagnetic radiation as children's skulls are thinner.

- Frequent use of mobile phones can also damage the visual system in many ways. Researchers are finding a 360 % increase in cancers of the eye nearest the usual placement of a user's cell phone. 

- Excessive use of mobile phones can also cause cancer in anyone. Use of cell phones for more than 30 minutes per day for 10 years increases the risk of brain cancer and acoustic neuroma.

- Cell phone radiation causes irreversible damage to male fertility. Studies have found 30% lower sperm count in intensive users of mobile phones.

Dr Neil Cherry O.N.Z.M1
Associate Professor of Environmental HealthThere is robust scientific evidence that electromagnetic radiation is a Ubiquitous Universal Genotoxic Carcinogen. If this understanding was applied to the data available in 1982, when IARC declared benzene a Human Carcinogen, then the level of data for RF/MW radiation being a human carcinogen was considerably stronger than that for benzene. A large body of laboratory experiments and epidemiological studies now confirm the hypothesis. 

This confirms that hypothesis and the toxicology of the signals with a safe level of zero exposure. Hence living in the vicinity of broadcast and mobile phone towers produces Cancer, Cardiac, Reproductive and Neurological (CCRN) health effects.

Internationally acknowledged experts in the field of RF/MW radiation research have shown that RF/MW transmissions of the type used in digital cellular antennas and phones can have critical effects on cell cultures, animals, and people in laboratories and have also found epidemiological evidence (studies of communities, not in the laboratory) of serious health effects at "non-thermal levels," where the intensity of the RF/MW radiation was too low to cause heating. They have found:

Increased cell growth of brain cancer cells (5)
A doubling of the rate of lymphoma in mice (6)
Changes in tumor growth in rats (7)
An increased number of tumors in rats (8)
Increased single- and double-strand breaks in DNA, our genetic material (9)

Many cellphones emit the most radiation when they initially establish contact with the cell tower, making their “digital handshake.” To reduce exposure it’s best to wait until after your call has been connected to put your cellphone next to your ear. During the ensuing conversation, it’s advisable to tilt the phone away from your ear when you are talking and only bring it in close to your ear when you are listening. That bit of teeter-totter works because the emission of radiation is “significantly less when a cellphone is receiving signals than when it is transmitting,” said Lin Zhong, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at Rice University in Houston. Of course, parents using their iPhones to pacify cranky kids might want to reconsider rattles. Children’s developing brains and tissues are thought to be most vulnerable to cellphone radiation. Health authorities in Britain, France, Germany and Russia have all issued warnings against allowing small children to use cellphones for extended periods, if at all.

Orlean Koehle, State President Eagle Forum of California was heard saying on the CBS morning news, “Many are EMF sensitive, but I am “Big Brother sensitive.”  This comment received chuckles and applause from the audience at the CPUC hearing,   March 24 was broadcast on the San Francisco CBS radio morning news, 740 AM, March 25. 

 “I believe in freedom and believe our homes are supposed to be our castles, where we can feel safe and protected. I do not like the idea of being connected to the “grid” and having data from our homes being collected and sold to the highest bidders. I do not like the idea of someone knowing if we are in our homes or on vacation.  I do not want a smart meter, wired or wireless.  I just want my old analog meter to be left alone.  It is perfectly good and working just fine.”

PUBLISHED Environmental Health Journal : It has been claimed that this relatively small study yielded reassuring results of no increased risk. 
We do not agree. We consider that the data contain several indications of increased risk, despite low exposure, short latency period, and limitations in the study design, analyses and interpretation.

Surgical teams on cell phones during surgeries

A peer-reviewed survey of 439 medical technicians published this year in Perfusion, a journal about cardio-pulmonary bypass surgery, found that 55 percent of technicians who monitor bypass machines acknowledged to researchers that they had talked on cellphones during heart surgery. Half said they had texted while in surgery.
