California Medical Association Calls for Stronger Wireless Communication Safety Standards

The Federal safety standards for wireless communications were designed to protect humans from the heating, or thermal, risks caused by exposure to microwave radiation. However, thousands of peer-reviewed studies have found bio-effects from exposure to low intensity, non-thermal levels of microwave radiation. Moreover, three independent, case-control studies have found a two-fold increased risk of brain cancer among adults who have used cell phones for ten or more years. And one study found a three-fold risk of brain cancer after 25 years of cell phone and cordless phone use.

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.

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)."

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.

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.

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.”

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.)

‘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
