Electromagnetic Radiation & Health Concerns

 

 

 

“I think anyone who puts WiFi into a school should be locked up for the rest of their life … because they haven’t looked at the research and whatever incentive they have, it is not worth the genetic problems that parents are going to face with their children when they’re born.”  Barrie Trower (6:20 mins)

 

180+ scientists and doctors from 35 countries warn of potential serious health effects of 5G and recommend a moratorium until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry (.pdf)

 

International Appeal “Stop 5G on Earth and in Space”

 

Thermal

The most well-established biological effect of radio frequency-electromagnetic frequencies (RF-EMFs) is heating. High doses of RF-EMFs can lead to a rise in the temperature of the exposed tissues, leading to burns and other damage.

 

But mobile devices emit RF-EMFs at low levels that are non-ionizing. Whether this is a cause for concern is a matter of ongoing debate, reignited by the arrival of 5G. (article)

 

Ionizing versus Non-Ionizing Radiation

The electromagnetic frequency spectrum is broadly categorized into two types of electromagnetic radiation:  ionizing and non-ionizing.    

 

Exposure to ionizing radiation is known to cause damage to living tissue and can result in radiation burnscell damageradiation sicknesscancer, and death.

 

Damage from exposure to non-ionizing radiation is less well-known, deliberately obfuscated by government, industry and media, and is thus considered controversial. (See “Hidden Dangers 5G:  How governments, telecom and electric power utilities suppress the truth about the known hazards of electro-magnetic field (EMF) radiation” by Captain Jerry G. Flynn, Canadian author) (link to Amazon)

 

Call for Protection from Non-ionizing Electromagnetic Field Exposure was made by the International Electromagnetic Field Scientist Appeal, initial release date May 11, 2015, latest version's date January 29, 2017 with 222 signatures from 41 nations: 'We are scientists engaged in the study of biological and health effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF)… Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plant and animal life. (article)

Exposure to EMFs

 

People can be more or less susceptible to environmental exposures.  Some people are obviously impacted by wireless exposure.  Others, while not obvious, are indirectly impacted.

 

Studies have found a connection between electromagnetic radiation and cancer.  Additional potential impacts on human health are:  insomnia, headaches, immune dysfunction, heart irregularities, irritability, fatigue, endocrine imbalances, ADD, low libido, muscle fatigue/pain, dizziness, cold hands or feet, difficulty concentrating, tremors, loss of appetite, feelings of exhaustion.   For more details see Camilla Rees, MBA video @ 18mins and 25:51 mins) (Reference list for Wireless Health Impacts (.pdf))

 

The BioInitiative report, issued by 29 medical and scientific experts states that “Bioeffects are clearly established and occur at very low levels of exposure to [EMFs] and radiofrequency radiation.”  The report highlights links to DNA damage, oxidative stress, neurotoxicity, carcinogenicity, sperm morphology, and fetal, newborn, and early life development. They also propose a link between RF-EMF exposure and a higher risk of developing autism spectrum disorder. (article)

 

5G is not a minor upgrade.  The technology elicits all the current health concerns of 4G plus tens to hundreds times more radiation (article).  5G is in addition to existing 2G, 3G, 4G technologies.  5G will be inescapable.

 

The EUROPA EM-EMF Guideline 2016 states that “there is strong evidence that long-term exposure to certain EMFs is a risk factor for diseases such as certain cancers, Alzheimer’s disease, and male infertility … common EHS (electromagnetic hypersensitivity),  symptoms include headaches, concentration difficulties, sleep problems, depression, lack of energy, fatigue, and flu-like symptoms. (video 48 mins)

 

Symptoms

 

Symptoms of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) poisoning are: nosebleeds, headaches, eye pains, chest pains, nausea, fatigue, vomiting, tinnitus, dizziness, flu-like symptoms, or cardiac pain. They also report a tight band around the head; pressure on the top of the head; short, stabbing pains around the body; or buzzing internal organs. Other biological effects such as tumours or dementia usually take longer to manifest. (article)

 

Mark Steele, former weapons expert and campaigner against 5G technology in Gateshead states that microwave technology harms the blood/brain barrier causing neurological damage, nose bleeds, miscarriages, diabetes, dementia, strokes and heart attacks.  He says “the science is absolutely proven.” 

 

 

Illnesses

Fifty years ago few people had heard of Autism, ADHD, breast cancer, brain tumors, thyroid cancer, pancreatic cancer, testicular cancer, colon cancer, leukemia and other cancers, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lou Gehrig Disease (ALS), Sudden-Infant-Death-Syndrome (SIDS), suicides, depression, miscarriages, still-births, asthma, etc. Today they are disease epidemics in all industrialized countries!  (article)

 

Cancer

Radiofrequency waves ‘possibly carcinogenic to humans’

 

In 2011, 30 international scientists, who are part of the working group of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), met to assess the risk of developing cancer as a result of exposure to RF-EMFs.

The working group published a summary of their findings in The Lancet Oncology.

The scientists looked at one cohort study and five case-control studies in humans, each of which was designed to investigate whether there is a link between cell phone use and glioma, a cancer of the central nervous system.

The team concluded that, based on studies of the highest quality, “A causal interpretation between mobile phone RF-EMF exposure and glioma is possible.” Smaller studies supported a similar conclusion for acoustic neuroma, but the evidence was not convincing for other types of cancer. (Article)

 

New studies, like the National Toxicology Program (NTP) study and several epidemiological investigations including the latest studies on mobile phone use and brain cancer risks confirm that RF-EMF radiation is carcinogenic to humans. (video 48 mins)

 

The $25-million, 10-year study conducted by the NTP Study on Cell Phones and Cancer in 2018 provided “clear evidence” that non-thermal EMF/R causes cancer, [link] [link] and the subsequent world’s largest Animal Study done by the renowned Ramazzini Institute, in Italy, on Cell Tower radiation “confirmed cancer link”! link (article)

COVID-19

The symptoms of COVID-19 are flu-like: cough, high temperature, headache, body aches.  Many people have mild symptoms and uneventfully survive the disease.  Some people die apparently of pneumonia akin to high-altitude sickness – 3%-14% depending on location and particularly if they are considered vulnerable:  old, compromised immune systems, suffering a pre-existing condition.  (AO News – COVID-19)

 

2020 COVID-19 pandemic hotspots of Wuhan, Iran, northern Italy, Madrid, New York all corresponded to the recent roll-out of 5G “fifth generation cellular” technology with COVID-19 having the same flu-like symptoms as electromagnetic radiation poisoning (AO Wireless News) leading to stories that 5G caused COVID-19.  Refined explanations showed that high levels of 5G electromagnetic frequency exposure made damaged cells more susceptible to coronavirus (video 32 mins)

5G, Mitochondria & Coronavirus – A Tale of Depolarization

Specific Frequencies

Schumann Resonances

The ambient frequency of earth as well as the frequency of the relaxed human brain (7.83Hz) -  30 Hz thru 60 Hz, typically at 7.83 Hz, 14.3 Hz, 20.8 Hz, 27.3 Hz, 33.8 Hz - the Schumann Resonances (wikipedia) (link)

 

30 kHz to 300 GHz (RF-EMFs)

Called “radio frequency electromagnetic fields” or “RF-EMFs”.

 

2.4GHz

2.4GHz vibrates at the same frequency as water.  Humans are 99.9% water. (60%)

 

High frequency, specifically 2.45 GHz Wi-Fi radiation, induces a decrease in sperm parameters along with an increase in apoptosis-positive cells and caspase-3 activity in the seminiferous tubules of Wistar rats, specially in 7-hour group. It reduced seminal vesicle weight following 2.45 GHz exposure. Considering the progressive privilege of 2.45 GHz wireless networks in our environment, we concluded that there should be a major concern about the time-dependent exposure of our body to the higher frequencies of Wi-Fi antenna.

All microwave frequencies are highly absorbed by water. (link)

 

30 GHz – 300 GHz (Millimeter Waves)

Millimeter waves are mostly absorbed within a few millimeters of human skin and in the surface layers of the cornea. Short-term exposure can have adverse physiological effects in the peripheral nervous system, the immune system and the cardiovascular system. The research suggests that long-term exposure may pose health risks to the skin (e.g., melanoma), the eyes (e.g., ocular melanoma) and the testes (e.g., sterility). (article)

 

60GHz

60GHz atmospheric absorption is very high with 98 percent of the transmitted energy absorbed by atmospheric oxygen (article)

 

Oxygen the atom is O. Oxygen the molecule is 02. Two atoms together.

 

These two atoms form the oxygen molecule and share some electrons. 60 GHz causes electrons surrounding oxygen molecules to spin, akin to how high-powered microwaves running on 2.4 impact molecules in food such as water. They’re heating, in part, by impacting those molecules to rotate or oscillate with each wave. The movement energy from the rotation of these super tiny water molecules helps heat the rest of the food.

In a similar way that 2.4 causes H20 to oscillate, 5G/60 GHz even at low power causes electrons on oxygen molecules to spin; changes to the spin frequencies on oxygen electrons impact human biology.

 

When you breathe air into your lungs it gets oxygen into your blood, brain, tissues etc. and oxygen entering your lungs gets picked up by a very important iron containing protein called hemoglobin in your blood.

The impact of oxygen molecules spinning the electrons is that it makes the hemoglobin unable to uptake the oxygen and get it to the rest of your body.

Point-to-point wireless systems operating at 60 GHz have been used for many years by the intelligence community for high security communications and by the military for satellite-to-satellite communications. Their interest in this frequency band stems from a phenomenon of nature: the oxygen molecule (O2) absorbs electromagnetic energy at 60 GHz like a piece of food in a microwave oven. This absorption occurs to a much higher degree at 60 GHz than at lower frequencies typically used for wireless communications. This absorption weakens (attenuates) 60 GHz signals over distance, so that signals cannot travel far beyond their intended recipient. For this reason, 60 GHz is an excellent choice for covert satellite-to-satellite communications because the earth’s atmosphere acts like a shield preventing earth-based eavesdropping. Because of the rich legacy of applications in this band, a wide variety of components and subassemblies for 60 GHz products are available today.

The Players

International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) (article) (link)

 

International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) (first in 1998 and again in 2009) does not raise any alarms about 5G saying merely:

 

“In the case of potential long-term effects of exposure, such as an increased risk of cancer, ICNIRP concluded that available data are insufficient to provide a basis for setting exposure restrictions, although epidemiological research has provided suggestive, but unconvincing, evidence of an association between possible carcinogenic effects and exposure at levels of 50/60 Hz magnetic flux densities substantially lower than those recommended in these guidelines.”  April 1998, Volume 74, Number 4, Page 496

 

Medicalnewstoday.com/articles/326141

 

 

International EMF Project (established 1996) (link)

 

National Toxicology Program (NTP) – the world’s largest study (US $25 million) shows statistically significant increase in the incidence of brain and heart cancer in animals exposed to EMF below the ICNIRP guidelines.  These results support results in human epidemiological studies on RF radiation and brain tumour risk.  A large number of peer-reviewed scientific reports demonstrate harm to human health from EMFs.  (video 48 mins)

 

World Health Organization (WHO) (link) - At present, the WHO state that “To date, no adverse health effects from low level, long term exposure to radiofrequency or power frequency fields have been confirmed, but scientists are actively continuing to research this area.” (article)
