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.

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)."

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).

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.
...even a year of operation of a powerful base transmitting station for mobile communication reportedly resulted in a dramatic increase of cancer incidence among population living nearby.

In addition, model studies in rodents unveiled a significant increase in carcinogenesis after 17-24 months of MW exposure both in tumor-prone and intact animals.

ABC News: Experts say exposure to artificial light from tablets is causing sleep disorders

ABC News Videos. "There can also be long-term effects for sleep-deprived adolescents.The risk from the intense light is most significant for adolescents... "They're at much greater risk of later developing anxiety disorders, depressive illnesses, substance abuse issues and also, on the more physical side, they're at increased risk of poor glycaemic control, diabetes and so on."

SCIENCE: WebMD – Cell Phones May Cause Hearing Loss

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.
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
system.

Cellphone effects upon fetal development tied to ADHD

SCIENCE: Scientists find that fetal mice exposed to cellphones with 800-1900 Mhz-rated EMF developed a higher rate of the symptoms used to diagnose ADHD in our children .This published epidemiologic study found an association between prenatal cellular telephone exposure and subsequent behavioral problems in the exposed offspring.
