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).

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.
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.

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.)

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

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.
