Dangers of Household Radiation (updated) - Dr. Debra Greene

Dr. Greene shows the health hazards and dangers of common household electronics such as light bulbs, cordless and cell phones, microwaves, and baby monitors. She offers eye opening and important information as well as simple solutions. This version of Part 1 contains an update about compact florescent light bulbs. The EPA recommended cleanup if you accidentally break a CFL is too complex and extensive to include in the video (but you don't have to call the fire department). Be sure to watch Part 2 for MORE demonstrations and FREE solutions on wireless computers and how radiation travels through your walls.

Dr. George Carlo EMF Cell Phone Dangers Interview

Dr. Carlo talks about the cell phone industry's marketing towards children and the epidemic projections from cell phone use.George Carlo and Martin Schram are aiming to become information-age Ralph Naders. They ask a question that ought to concern America's 103 million mobile phone users, as well as those who merely come within earshot of these popular devices: Is the wireless future a threat to public health? "Visit any public building, college classroom, courthouse, or commuter train, and look around: You'll see people using not just wireless phones but also wireless laptop computers and miniature palm tops," write Carlo and Schram. "What you won't see are the microwaves that are criss-crossing a confined space where a number of people who are not even using these instruments are bombarded by these waves." It sounds creepy. And Carlo, an epidemiologist who once oversaw a multimillion-dollar research project on health for the cellular industry, believes the news is not good: there may be a link between cell phone use and brain tumors. The research is not conclusive, but Carlo and Schram think it's disturbing enough to warrant government action. Needless to say, the industry that once backed Carlo's work now considers him persona non grata.

Due largely to Carlo's coauthorship, Cell Phones is unavoidably a one-sided story. Key business figures didn't agree to interviews. In fact, this might have been a better book if it were written by Schram, with Carlo as one of several major characters rather than a collaborator. Then again, it would lack the passionate advocacy that will draw many readers to it. And even the most skeptical may want to take a few of the simple safety precautions the authors recommend in a concluding chapter, such as wearing a headset or earpiece when using a cell phone, in order to keep a distance from the radiation-emitting antennae. One look at the x-ray photos reproduced in the book, which show how radiation easily penetrates skulls, will give even the most impervious observer second thoughts. One thing is probably certain: This book is a harbinger of litigation. If Carlo and Schram are correct about their concerns, the cellular industry--as unbelievable as it sounds--may go the way of Big Tobacco. --John J.

USA - Full signal The trailer

Talal Jabari, a Palestinian-American who has worked as a journalist, producer and creator of audio effects, has recently made his début as director with the film Full Signal, which won the prize for best documentary at the Myrtle Beach International Film Festival in December 2009.

As the number of people using mobile phones continues to grow, more and more base stations are being installed to meet the demand. Faced with the mounting conflict over the damaging health effects of artificial electromagnetic fields from HF microwave radiation, and the drop in property values where phone masts have been set up, the phone networks have found an emergency solution by disguising relay antennas in real or artificial trees, fake chimneys, etc. But however they try to hide it, this is the most serious worldwide health scandal in the beginning of the 21st century.

Full Signal gives the chance to speak out to scientific experts working on the health problems arising from mobile phone and phone mast radiation, also to campaigners battling against the presence of relay antennas in residential areas, to the electrosensitive (EHS), to government health authorities and to lawyers, who are obtaining more and more favourable verdicts in cases brought against the phone companies.

Through interviews with a widely representative range of people, this documentary highlights a growing awareness in the international community, who are finally beginning to pay attention to the problems arising from the proliferation of relay antennas, and becoming concerned about the now proven health hazards arising from this new form of serious environmental pollution.

WIFI routers emit electromagnetic radiation all the time

WIFI routers and access points emit Electromagnetic radiation all the time, even when there is no computer or laptop connected to them. The only way to stop the emission is to turn the WIFI feature of on the router. In some routers there is a possibility to do that using the router HTML GUI or a button on the back of it. It is not recommended to use WIFI for long time, or to leave it working when there are people around.

Harming Electrosmog and blood-brain barrier by professor Olle Johansson


Olle Johansson, Ph.D.

My group investigates health effects of modern, man-made electromagnetic fields as well as the functional impairment electrohypersensitivity. I introduced the clinical term "screen dermatitis" to explain the cutaneous damages that developed in the late 1970's when office workers, first mostly women, began to be placed in front of computer monitors. I called for action along lines of occupational medicine, biophysics and biochemistry, as well as neuroscience and experimental dermatology. The working hypothesis early became that persons with the impairment electrohypersensitivity react in a cellularly correct way to the electromagnetic radiation, maybe in concert with chemical emissions such as plastic components, flame retardants, etc., in a highly specific way and with a completely correct avoidance reaction -- just as you would do if you had been exposed to e.g. sun rays, X-rays, radioactivity or chemical odours. Nowadays, electrohypersensitivity (EHS) is in Sweden an officially fully recognized functional impairment (i.e., it is not regarded as a disease). Survey studies show that somewhere between 230,000-290,000 Swedish men and women -- out of a population of 9,000,000 -- report a variety of symtoms when being in contact with electromagnetic field sources. To this, one should also add all the current issues regarding the bigger picture: the health effects of electromagnetic fields on the general population. I and my collaborators have, in addition, worked in great depth in areas such as skin diseases, cancer, child delivery, female urine incontinence, oral mucosa diseases, brain and spinal cord morphology, synaptology and chemical transmission, peripheral nervous system-related issues, cardiac function, skeletal muscle function and disease, and connective tissue ripening phenomena.

USA - Cell tower OK raises some health concerns

“The industry has set what they say are “safe levels” of radiation exposure, but there are a growing number of doctors, physicists, and health officials who strongly disagree, and foresee a public health crisis,” said author Karen J. Rogers of the Mount Shasta Bioregional Ecology Center, in a widely-quoted whitepaper entitled Health Effects from Cell Phone Tower Radiation.

Sweden - Nerve cell damage in mammalian brain after exposure to microwaves from GSM mobile phones

The possible risks of radio-frequent electromagnetic fields for the human body, is a growing concern for the society. We have earlier shown that weak pulsed microwaves give rise to a significant leakage of albumin through the blood-brain barrier (BBB). Now we have investigated whether a pathological leakage over the BBB might be combined with damage to the neurons. Three groups of each 8 rats were exposed for 2 hours to GSM mobile phone electromagnetic fields of different strengths. We found, and present here for the first time, highly significant (p<0.002) evidence for neuronal damage in both the cortex, the hippocampus and the basal ganglia in the brains of exposed rats.

We present here for the first time evidence for neuronal damage caused by nonthermal microwave exposure. The cortex as well as the hippocampus and the basal ganglia in the brains of exposed rats contain damaged neurons. We realise that our study comprises few animals, but the combined results are highly significant and exhibit a clear dose-response relation. The observed dark neurons are deemed not to be artefacts for the following reasons. The brains were perfusion fixed in situ and removed atraumatically. The dark neurons were intermingled with normal appearing neurons (see fig 2a,b). Further, the presence of vacuoles in several of the dark neurons is a clear sign that damage occurred in the living animal.

We cannot exclude that the neuronal change described may represent apoptotic cell death. The neuronal albumin uptake and other changes described would seem to indicate a serious neuronal damage, which may be mediated through organelle damage with release of not only hydrolytic lysosomal enzymes but also e.g. sequestered harmful material, such as heavy metals, stored away in cytoplasmatic organelles (lysosomes). The time between last exposure and sacrifice is of great importance for the detection of foci of leakage since extravasated albumin rapidly diffuses down to, and beyond, concentrations possible to demonstrate accurately immunohistologically. However, the initial albumin leakage into the brain tissue (seen within hours in about 40% of exposed animals in our previous studies) may start a secondary BBB opening, leading to a vicious circle – as we demonstrate albumin leakage even 8 weeks after the exposure.

The reason for our choice of 12 to 26 weeks old rats is that they are comparable to human mobile phone addicted teen-agers with respect to age. The situation of the growing brain might deserve special concern from the society since biological and maturational processes are particularly vulnerable. The intense use of mobile phones by youngsters is a serious memento. A neuronal damage of the kind, here described, may not have immediately demonstrable consequences, even if repeated. It may, however, in the long run, result in reduced brain reserve capacity that might be unveiled by other later neuronal disease or even the wear and tear of ageing. We can not exclude that after some decades of (often), daily use, a whole generation of users, may suffer negative effects maybe already in their middle age.
