It seems like every time we turn around there is another study citing the dangers of EMF exposure.
I’ll admit it. It bothers me that people ignore the dangers and claim there is no evidence. I’ve dedicated the past 20 years to EMF research. It is alarming to say the least.
This website is dedicated to bringing forth that information so my readers can understand the scope of what we are dealing with as a society and as a species. Even if people choose to ignore the dangers of EMF exposure, that doesn’t mean the entire planet is not affected.
History has shown us that sticking our head in the sand is not the answer. It leads to more problems.
I’m not going to convince people to stop using technology because that won’t happen. What I will preach is safe use of technology.
Just like people need protection from too much sun exposure and STDs, they also should be using technology protection.
Yes, I just compared EMFs to an STD.
Just like an STD, if left unchecked, it leaves death and destruction in its path.
Cell phones, computers, wifi and other electronics have been around long enough that we are seeing the affects. I’m sounding the alarm bell now to start to protect yourself and your family. Don’t wait.
Dangers of EMF exposure And Research Studies
As of today there are 182,000 studies in Google scholar for EMFs causing cancer.
I will outline some short excerpts about the EMF connection to cancer in the following studies:
Cancer morbidity in subjects occupationally exposed to high frequency (radiofrequency and microwave) electromagnetic radiation, Stanislaw Szmigielski. Science of The Total Environment, Volume 180, Issue 1, 2 February 1996,
Cancer morbidity was registered in the whole population of military career personnel in Poland during a period of 15 years (1971–1985). Subjects exposed occupationally to radiofrequencies (RF) and microwaves (MW) were selected from the population on the basis of their service records and documented exposures at service posts.
Among malignancies of the haemopoietic/lymphatic systems, the largest differences in morbidity rates between exposed and non-exposed personnel were found for chronic myelocytic leukaemia (OER = 13.9), acute myeloblastic leukaemia (OER = 8.62) and non-Hodgkin lymphomas (OER = 5.82).
The Break Down: There is evidence here showing how RFs and MWs (cell phones are MWs) cause cancer, especially leukemias and lymphomas.
Electromagnetic field exposure and male breast cancer. GM Matanoski, PN Breysse, EA Elliott – The Lancet, 1991 – Elsevier
Data from a population-based case-control study of breast cancer in men were used to examine the hypothesis that occupational.
The risk was highest among subjects who were first employed in jobs with exposure before the age of 30 years and who were initially exposed at least 30 years prior to diagnosis. These results lend support to the theory that electromagnetic fields may be related to breast cancer in men. The hypothesis warrants evaluation in women.
The Break Down: There is evidence here showing how EMF exposure in the workplace caused breast cancer in men. The highest rates were in younger men under 30.
Cell membranes: The electromagnetic environment and cancer promotion. W. R. Adey. Neurochemical Research, 1988, Volume 13, Number 7, Page 671
Use of weak electromagnetic fields to study the sequence and energetics of events that couple humoral stimuli from surface receptor sites to the cell interior has identified cell membranes as a primary site of interaction, with these low frequency fields. Field modulation of cell surface chemical events indicates a major amplification of initial weak triggers associated with binding of hormones, antibodies and neurotransmitters to their specific binding sites.
Powerful cancer-promoting phorbol esters act at cell membranes to stimulate ornithine decarboxylase which is essential for cell growth and DNA synthesis. This response is enhanced by weak microwave fields, also acting at cell membranes.
The Break Down: There is evidence here showing how low frequency EMFs cause cancer. EMFs help cancer cells grow.
What About The Other Dangers Of EMF Exposure, Like EMF Sickness?
Google scholar cites 18,100 research studies alone.
Biological effects from exposure to electromagnetic radiation emitted by cell tower base stations and other antenna arrays. B. Blake Levitt, Henry Lai. Environmental Reviews, 2010, 18:369-395, 10.1139/A10-018
The siting of cellular phone base stations and other cellular infrastructure such as roof-mounted antenna arrays, especially in residential neighborhoods, is a contentious subject in land-use regulation.
Both anecdotal reports and some epidemiology studies have found headaches, skin rashes, sleep disturbances, depression, decreased libido, increased rates of suicide, concentration problems, dizziness, memory changes, increased risk of cancer, tremors, and other neurophysiological effects in populations near base stations.
Symptoms reported today may be classic microwave sickness, first described in 1978. Nonionizing electromagnetic fields are among the fastest growing forms of environmental pollution. Some extrapolations can be made from research other than epidemiology regarding biological effects from exposures at levels far below current exposure guidelines.
The Break Down: Cell towers and on house antennas showed to cause a range of sickness symptoms at levels a lot lower than the current exposure recommendations.
The microwave syndrome: A preliminary study in Spain. Navarro, EA. ELECTROMAGNETIC BIOLOGY AND MEDICINE. Vol: 22; 2-3 JUL-NOV 2003
A health survey was carried out in Murcia, Spain, in the vicinity of a Cellular Phone Base Station working in DCS‐1800 MHz. This survey contained health items related to “microwave sickness” or “RF syndrome.” The microwave power density was measured at the respondents’ homes. Statistical analysis showed significant correlation between the declared severity of the symptoms and the measured power density. The separation of respondents into two different exposure groups also showed an increase of the declared severity in the group with the higher exposure.
The Break Down: This showed that RF syndrome or microwave sickness was indeed real. The severity of the sickness was found to compare to the level of exposure.
Influence of high-frequency electromagnetic radiation at non-thermal intensities on the human body. NN Kositsky, AI Nizhelska, GV Ponezha – No place to hide, 2001 – salzburg.gv.at
The following lists non-thermal modulating EMF and EMR actions on the physical body.
Absorption of EMF in biologically active points is many times more effective than in other parts of the skin, and this energy influences the internal organs and the body as a whole through the system of Chinese meridians.
At the moment of cellular division, genetic information becomes “open,” chromosomes become immobile and far more susceptible to the influence EMR. An external resonance field may induce expression of genes connected with cancer and change the program of cellular development.
Manifestation of the effects of EMF depends on conditions of health and age: healthy adults have minimal sensitivity; embryos, children, elderly persons, and those with hidden psychological or physical disorders experience significant effects, all the way to lethal outcomes.
Accumulated discord in the work of cells during chronic and quasiperiodic irradiation leads to confused biorhythms, scattered attention, indistinct phases of sleep and arousal; the body is not in a condition to make a recovery.
The effects of HF EMR occur through the hormonal system and immune system with amplification and accumulation of effects; and through catalysts of cellular respiration and biosynthesis. These reactions are non-specific, and it is often difficult to connect them with the fact of irradiation by EMF at non-thermal intensities.
On the level of a nerve cell, of structural formations for transmission of nerve impulses (synapses), and on the level of isolated nerve structures, significant deviations occur during exposure to EMF of low intensities. Higher nervous activities, including memory, change in people having contact with EMF. These persons may have a tendency to develop stress reactions. Certain structures of the brain have heightened sensitivity to EMF. Changes in the permeability of the blood-brain barrier may lead to unexpected, unfavorable effects. Especially high sensitivity to EMF is displayed in the embryonic nervous system.
The Break Down: Non-thermal modulating radiation/EMFs (ones that are man made) affects several aspects of the body including organs, nervous system, hormones and immune system. Children, embryos, elderly people, and people that have unknown mental or physical disorders are more susceptible. During cellular division, the genes may be more influenced than at other times. EMFs cross the blood brain barrier.
Dangers of EMF Exposure is varied and creates illness and destruction in its path.
This goes much deeper than cancer and EMF sensitivities though. If you read the above, you have an idea of the body systems that are affected by electromagnetic fields and electromagnetic radiation (even the non-heating types).
My mantra is to protect yourself and your family and your pets as much as you can. Use as many means as possible to stay as safe as possible from the dangers of EMF exposure.
