«Dr. Gerard Hyland, a theoretical physicist at the International Institute of Biophysics in Neuss, Germany, says (…) that, as well as heat, mobile phone and mast microwaves emit a kind of pulsing white noise that interferes with our bodies in the same way that phones interfere with aeroplane or hospital equipment. “The alive human body is an electromagnetic instrument, not just a bag of chemicals,” he says. “Information is transported electrically, the body chemistry is controlled by electrical signals.”
According to this theory, pulsing microwave radiation from masts and phones causes “interference” in the body, which impairs body function and could lead to illness.»

«Dr. George Carlo, who used to run a multi-million dollar research program for the cell phone industry and went public regarding the dangers posed by cell phones, uses the analogy of putting a frog in water. If you put a frog in boiling water, it will jump out. However, if you put a frog in cold water and gradually heat the water, you can cook the frog because the frog’s body will adjust to the slight changes in temperature and it will not notice it is being cooked. Well, the same thing might be happening to an unsuspecting public – a public that has not been informed about the real dangers of microwave radiation from cell phones, WiFi and other high-frequency-radiation emitting devices and antennas.»
“I have no doubt in my mind that, at the present time, the greatest polluting element in the Earth’s environment is the proliferation of electromagnetic fields.”

«The passage of electricity from a scientific curiosity to a role of major importance in society (Table 10.1) resulted in a profound alteration in the earth’s electromagnetic environment. From the origin of life on earth to the beginning of the twentieth century this environment was determined by the sun and other cosmic sources, and by the geomagnetic properties of the earth itself; the intensity was extremely small even by the standards of today’s ultrasensitive instrumentation. But by the beginning of the last half of the twentieth century, man-made EMFs were the overwhelmingly dominant constituent of the earth’s electromagnetic environment. With the benefit of hindsight, we can now see that it was dangerous to have made such a drastic alteration in our environment without first studying its potential biological impact. (…)»

«In the book, “Cross Currents”, Robert Becker, MD wrote, “At this time, the scientific evidence is absolutely conclusive: 50-60 Hz magnetic fields cause human cancer cells to permanently increase their rate of growth by as much 1,600 per cent and to develop more malignant characteristics.” Dr. Becker studied the effects of EMF/RF for over 20 years and applied the increase of cell growth from EMF to help heal bones He documented that there was an increase in the incidence of cancers that are in tissues with continuous rates of cell division (1975 – 1990). These cancers are lymphoma, myeloma, melanoma, breast , testicular, prancreatic, kidney and colon.
All electronics have EMFs. Our wireless products also emit microwaves which have been shown to be even more cancer inducing as they interfere with the recombining of DNA leading to more double strand breaks, disrupt the blood brain barrier; inhibit the pineal gland’s production of the essential anti-cancer endocrine melatonin; disrupt normal sleep patterns; induce ion exchange reactions; interfere with the influx and efflux mechanisms of neurones; increase the manufacture of chronic levels of heat-shock proteins with repeated exposures; and result in inflammatory responses.

Russian researchers affiliated with the Russian Academy of Sciences published two studies in Radiation Biology. Radiation Ecology. 2011. Volume 51, No.5, p.611-623 that describe the effects of mobile phone radiation exposure on children’s bodies, showing that children’s bodies are more sensitive than adults, and showing an increased number of phonemic perception disorders, abatement of efficiency, reduced indicators for the arbitrary and semantic memory, and increased fatigue. A steady decline of the parameters over 4 years from high values to bottom standards has been found.»
«From 1996 until he died in 2003, New Zealand physicist and electromagnetic radiation (EMR) meta-analyst, Dr. Neil Cherry, studied over 600 researchers worldwide. He found that EMR caused DNA breakages, chromosome aberrations, increased oncogene activity in cells, altered brain activity, altered blood pressure and increased brain cancer at very low levels – much lower than those allowed by the Australian standard. He also found that it impacts on the pineal gland in the brain, resulting in a reduction of melatonin – a vital part of many of the body’s biochemical systems, including the mediation of many hormone functions (including the control of weight) and a major scavenger of damaging free radicals. [Cherry, N., 2000: Evidence that Electromagnetic Radiation is Genotoxic: The Implications for the Epidemiology of Cancer, Cardiac, Neurological and Reproductive Effects.] These findings – in direct conflict with the interests of the multi-billion dollar telecommunications industry – have not only been replicated many times since, but have proved to be prophetic: cancer, leukaemia, cardiac disease, diabetes, sleep disturbances, dementia, weight gain or loss, weakened immune system, asthma, allergies, arthritis, nausea, memory and concentration problems, neurological conditions, and depression to name but a few – all on a sharp rise. He was surprised to find how much published research there is to show that – across the entire EMR spectrum – damage”2 was done to cellular DNA, rendering it genotoxic and therefore likely to be implicated in the formation of tumours and other illnesses. Since then other scientists have turned up further studies showing similar results. A study published in August 2007 indicates that mobile phone radiation causes cancer in mice”4 , and another one – published in August 2007 in New Scientist by scientists at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel – finds that after only 5 minutes of exposure to radiation one tenth of the power of a mobile phone, rat and human cell chemicals undergo changes.»
«In 2000 Dr. Henry Lai, a research professor in bioengineering at the University of Washington, has linked long-term memory loss and diminished navigating skills in rats with the microwaves emitted by mobile phones [Wang, B.M. and Lai, H., 2000: Acute exposure to pulsed 2450-MHz microwaves affects water maze learning in the rat. Bioelectromagnetics 21:52-56].
“This is the first study that shows that radio frequencies can affect long-term memory functions in rats,” Lai said. Previous studies have focused mainly on short-term memory.
Lai placed 100 rats in a large tank of water and taught them to swim to a platform in the middle of the tank. After swimming to the platform six times, the rats were easily able to find their way to it. Next, half of the rats were exposed to microwaves similar to those emitted by mobile phones. All of the exposed rats forgot the way. The unexposed rats, once again, had no problem swimming to the platform. “Then we took the platform away,” Lai said. “The normal rats went to the location, but the irradiated rats, on the other hand, swam around randomly, and did not approach the former location of the platform.”»
“Is it really wise and safe to subject ourselves to whole-body irradiation, all around the clock and wherever we are, with the same mobile radiation which laboratory studies have shown to cause serious injuries and effects?”

“In plain English, the point is that it has been demonstrated by several researchers that increasing the amount of heat shock proteins in cells results in the increased potential for developing tumours, increased stimulation of metastasis or spread of cancers, the direct development of cancer, de novo, and the decreased effectiveness of anti-cancer drugs.”

«Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Fields Effect on Human Health
By the mid 1990’s, it became clear that patients were adversely affected by electromagnetic fields and becoming more electrically sensitive. In the last five years with the advent of wireless devices, there has been a massive increase in radiofrequency (RF) exposure from wireless devices as well as reports of hypersensitivity and diseases related to electromagnetic field and RF exposure. Multiple studies correlate RF exposure with diseases such as cancer, neurological disease, reproductive disorders, immune dysfunction, and electromagnetic hypersensitivity.
The electromagnetic wave spectrum is divided into ionizing radiation such as ultraviolet and X-rays and non-ionizing radiation such as radiofrequency (RF), which includes WiFi, cell phones, and Smart Meter wireless communication. It has long been recognized that ionizing radiation can have a negative impact on health. However, the effects of non-ionizing radiation on human health recently have been seen. Discussions and research of non-ionizing radiation effects centers around thermal and non-thermal effects. (…)
While it was practical to regulate thermal bioeffects, it was also stated that non-thermal effects are not well understood and no conclusive scientific evidence points to non-thermal based negative health effects. (…) However, many in vitro, in vivo and epidemiological studies demonstrate that significant harmful biological effects occur from non-thermal RF exposure and satisfy Hill’s criteria of causality. Genetic damage, reproductive defects, cancer, neurological degeneration and nervous system dysfunction, immune system dysfunction, cognitive effects, protein and peptide damage, kidney damage, and developmental effects have all been reported in the peer-reviewed scientific literature.
Genotoxic effects from RF exposure, including studies of non-thermal levels of exposure, consistently and specifically show chromosomal instability, altered gene expression, gene mutations, DNA fragmentation and DNA structural breaks. 4-11 (…)
Genotoxic effects are documented to occur in neurons, blood lymphocytes, sperm, red blood cells, epithelial cells, hematopoietic tissue, lung cells and bone marrow. (…)
The World Health Organization has classified RF emissions as a group 2 B carcinogen.13 Cellular telephone use in rural areas was also shown to be associated with an increased risk for malignant brain tumors.14
The fact that RF exposure causes neurological damage has been documented repeatedly.
Increased blood-brain barrier permeability and oxidative damage, which are associated with brain cancer and neurodegenerative diseases, have been found. 4,7,15-17 Nittby et al. demonstrated a statistically significant dose-response effect between non-thermal RF exposure and occurrence of albumin leak across the blood-brain barrier. Changes associated with degenerative neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) have been reported. 4,10
Other neurological and cognitive disorders such as headaches, dizziness, tremors, decreased memory and attention, autonomic nervous system dysfunction, decreased reaction times, sleep disturbances and visual disruption have been reported to be statistically significant in multiple epidemiological studies with RF exposure occurring non-locally.18-21 (…)
Although these studies clearly show causality and disprove the claim that health effects from RF exposure are uncertain, there is another mechanism that proves electromagnetic frequencies, including radiofrequencies, can negatively impact human health. (…)
Long range EMF or RF forces can act over large distances setting a biological system oscillating in phase with the frequency of the electromagnetic field so it adapts with consequences to other body systems. This also may produce an electromagnetic frequency imprint into the living system that can be long lasting. (…) It is clear that the human body uses electricity from the chemical bond to the nerve impulse and obviously this orderly sequence can be disturbed by an individual-specific electromagnetic frequency environment.
