A new review of studies on cell phone radiation health risks has been published by L. Lloyd Morgan, senior science fellow at Environmental Health Trust, in the Journal of Microscopy and Ultrastructure. The review highlights findings on radiation effects on children and unborn babies.
In reviewing peer-reviewed cell phone exposure studies from 2009 to 2014, along with cell phone radiation data, government documents, manufacturers’ manuals, and similar publications, the authors found that children face a higher health risk than adults.
Highlights of the Review
- Children absorb more electromagnetic radiation (EMR) than adults.
- EMR is a Class 2B (possible) carcinogen.… Continue reading
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have updated the “Frequently Asked Questions” about cell phone radiation and health on their website. They now assert that “Along with many organizations worldwide, we recommend caution in cell phone use.”
The CDC’s recommendations are rather mild considering the vast amount of independent, peer-reviewed research linking many health risks to cell phone radiation, and also considering steps already taken by a number of other countries in the world to reduce cell phone health risks. However, they do represent a step forward in the US government’s position regarding cell… Continue reading
A new investigative documentary called Mobilize—the first feature-length film to examine the potential long-term harmful effects of cell phone radiation—will be opening soon at selected theaters in California. The film examines the most recent scientific research, outlines national legislative efforts, and reveals the influence technology companies have on public health.
Filmmaker Kevin Kunze started creating the film as a student and has paid the production costs himself, and this is evidently apparent in the quality of the film production. And yet the information given by professors and researchers about the harmful effects of cell phone radiation on… Continue reading
If you’re feeling chronically exhausted and you also spend a lot of time on your cell phone, you may want to consider the possibility that these two things are connected.
It may come as a surprise to hear that radiation from cell phones can cause exhaustion—but it’s one of the many symptoms that increasing numbers of people are feeling these days since cell phones have become an essential part of their lives.
It’s not surprising really, when you think of what researchers have found—that wireless radiation impacts the nervous system, keeping it constantly on the alert. It also affects the… Continue reading
Finding drug-free headache relief without medication isn’t easy. Natural treatments often don’t work. A healthy diet and stress reduction exercises can help, but they often don’t reach the core of the problem. Drugs aren’t the answer—they generally just treat the symptom. And who wants to be dependent on drugs, anyway?
You may not realize it, but it may be your technology that’s causing your headaches.
Your computer, your cell phone, and all your other wireless devices bombard you daily with hazardous electromagnetic radiation, a high frequency type of electromagnetic field (EMF). Your electricity and appliances generate another type of… Continue reading
Want to know how to improve your athletic performance and move to the next level? You’re likely aware of the energy-depleting effects of poor diet, lack of sleep, and stress.
But are you aware that EMFs (also known as electromagnetic radiation) in your environment may also be sapping your energy and stamina?
The Effects of EMF Exposure
We live in a sea of EMFs today, filled with cell phone radiation, WiFi radiation, and smart meter radiation. Cell towers and power lines also add their radiation into the mix, along with the EMFs from our electricity and… Continue reading
Berkeley may be the first city in the US to pass legislation stating that stickers must be attached to cell phone packaging, warning people that the devices may emit cancer-causing radiation. The proposal for this ordinance has been co-sponsored by City Councilman Max Anderson, who states he believes that cell phone radiation poses a risk and that the public has a right to information that is credible and understandable.
Similar efforts to pass such a law occurred in San Francisco in 2010, but they ended two years later through a federal court defeat, in which the court ruled that… Continue reading
It’s very exciting to read in this article below about all these GMO labeling victories happening. It really is about taking the protection of our health into our own hands. VF
The East Coast has been getting most of the attention lately on the state by state effort to label genetically-engineered food.
Vermont recently passed a bill and New York State’s bill is now moving. But let’s not forget about the western states, which are also critical to this fight. Right to know advocates in Oregon and Colorado are currently gathering signatures to place measures on… Continue reading
You may not think of your child as someone who has to deal with stress. But kids are no different from adults. They feel stress too.
The stresses they deal with may not seem like much compared to what you may be dealing with—paying bills, providing food & shelter for your family, and all the rest.
But they have their own anxieties that cause them stress. And they can experience the same kind of responses to the stress as any adult.
What Exactly is Stress?
Stress is a response we have to a situation or event that requires us… Continue reading
You may think you’re doing all you can to increase your longevity—exercise, good diet, lots of sleep, anti-aging health supplements. All important.
But you might be missing an important piece of information about the aging process: the damage that exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) does to your body. There are hundreds of independent, peer-reviewed studies that have correlated exposure to EMFs to damaging biological effects, and more that link it to a number of diseases.
Although much research has been done linking cell phone radiation with numerous health effects, not as much has been done on the effects of radiation on the brains of children and teens.
A group of British researchers led by Paul Elliott, director of the Center for Environment and Health at Imperial College London, is preparing to remedy this situation. They will be conducting the largest study yet to determine just what the impact of radiation from cell phones and other wireless devices has on the brain development of children and teens.
In September 2014, the Study of Cognition, Adolescents and… Continue reading
Concerned about WiFi radiation health risks? You have reason to be. WiFi uses hazardous RF radiation to send its signals through walls. If you have WiFi, you are receiving massive amounts of RF radiation that may be causing you and your family health problems.
WiFi Radiation Health Risks
Scientists & Organizations Cautioning about Radiation Health Risks
One prolific researcher of WiFi radiation, Dr. Magda Havas, Professor of Environmental & Resource Studies, Trent University, ON, Canada, states:
“The scientific evidence clearly shows… Continue reading
Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects as many as 30 million men, with its effects becoming increasingly prevalent with age. It’s estimated that around 50% of men over the age of 40 experience problems developing or maintaining an erection.
One of the main causes of erectile dysfunction is simply aging, but only to a certain extent; certain factors can cause premature erectile dysfunction to develop in otherwise healthy younger men, and one of the biggest threats to penile health is electromagnetic radiation caused by electronic devices.
In 2004, scientists discovered that laptop usage could dramatically reduce a man’s sperm count, sometimes resulting… Continue reading
If you’ve been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, you’ve probably been told that the causes of fibromyalgia are unknown. And that all you can do is take medications to help manage your symptoms.
This wouldn’t be so bad, if the medications weren’t so expensive and they were relieving all your symptoms. But probably they’re not—and they’re also causing side effects.
Is it Fibromyalgia or Electrosensitivity?
Perhaps the causes of fibromyalgia are unknown, but what many health practitioners are unaware of is how the symptoms of fibromyalgia and those of electrosensitivity (aka electromagnetic hypersensitivity) are very similar.
Electrosensitive people often don’t… Continue reading
It’s highly ironic, but it may be that mammography can actually harm women—and even help cause cancer to develop in a woman’s breast. Researchers increasingly agree that mammography is ineffective at best and harmful at worst.cause cancer to develop in a woman’s breast. Researchers increasingly agree that mammography is ineffective at best and harmful at worst.
Indeed, several studies over the past few years have concluded that mammograms, far from saving lives, may actually harm more women than they help, due to false positives, overtreatment, and radiation-induced cancers. According to Joseph Mercola, MD:
“One of the largest and… Continue reading
Despite what the telecom industry may want us to believe, if we do the research, we find there is now an overwhelming abundance of independent, peer-reviewed studies telling us that cell phone radiation is dangerous for our health. The research links cell phone radiation with many different disorders and diseases.
Cell Phones & Cancer
Researchers of the 2012 Bioinitiative Report agree that approximately ten years of cell phone use may lead to tumors. In particular, there are significant studies that directly correlate RF radiation from cell phones with brain tumors.
Studies report that:
- The chance of developing a brain… Continue reading
A new study on wireless radiation dangers was recently released by the BioInitiative Working Group, a research group that previously published a report in 2007 with an update in 2012. They have now released a further update covering scientific studies conducted since 2012.
It doesn’t look good: They report that health risks from wireless devices are growing ever stronger and require immediate action.
A particular concern is with the use of mobile phones, especially in regard to malignant brain tumors. Lennart Hardell from Orebro University, Sweden states:
“There is a consistent pattern of increased risk for glioma [a malignant brain… Continue reading
It’s highly ironic, but your laptop is dangerous on your lap. Researchers are warning laptop companies that they need to change the name of the product to protect users’ health.
Like holding a cell phone too close to your head, holding a laptop so close to your body means the radiation flows directly into your body—and into some of your most vital organs. And if you’re pregnant, of course, the dangers are even worse.
Searching for a phone with low SAR ratings sounds like the smart, responsible and educated thing to do—right?
You’re making yourself as safe as possible, based on the common wisdom that the cautious thing to do around cell phone radiation is using a phone with the lowest SAR.
It’s understandable that you’d believe this. At one point, the FCC came out with regulations that required mobile phone manufacturers to indicate the SAR level of their phones on the package so customers could base their purchase on this information.
And, since you understand that cell phone radiation is hazardous and… Continue reading
