MICROWAVES, SCIENCE AND LIES
Revelations about the manipulation of science by mobile phone industry

THE STORY OF THIS MOVIE

The events that inspired this documentary film took place in Alsace, where a group of concerned citizens voiced their opposition to the installation of a mobile-telephony antenna tower near a residential area. One such citizen, Dr George, took action after reading scientific studies revealing that the electromagnetic waves emitted by mobile-telephony antenna towers are harmful to human health. Meanwhile, the mayor of the town believed that this technology was safe, based on the World Health Organization’s 2009 statement that the waves were harmless.

Electromagnetic Radiation, Obesity and Chronic Fatigue, and the Effect of Electromagnetic Radiation on the Body's Brain, Respiratory and Skin Barriers

Two extracts from Dr Andrew Goldsworthy's much longer paper, The biological effects of weak electromagnetic fields – problems and solutions, first published in March 2012. Dr. Goldsworthy is an Honorary Lecturer in Biology at Imperial College London.

Electromagnetic radiation, obesity and chronic fatigue

Gland cells (thyroid, adrenal etc) may be particularly sensitive to radiation because their secretions are normally produced in internal membrane systems, which can also be damaged.

Their secretions are usually released in vesicles (bubbles of membrane) that fuse with the external cell membrane and disgorge their contents to the outside (exocytosis). The vesicle membrane then becomes part of the external membrane. The resulting excess external membrane is counterbalanced by the reverse process (endocytosis) in which the external membrane buds off vesicles to the inside of the cell, which then fuse with the internal membranes.

In this way, an active gland cell may internalise the equivalent of its entire surface membrane about once every half an hour. This means that if the surface membrane is damaged directly by the fields or by electromagnetically conditioned blood, the damaged membrane will rapidly become part of the internal membrane system, upon which its normal glandular activity depends. If the damage is too severe, the cell concerned may lose its normal function. We are now seeing increasing evidence of this.

Exposure to Aluminum in Antiperspirants May Present Health Risks

Did You Get Your Dose of Aluminum Today in Your Antiperspirant?
The People’s Pharmacy, 6 February 2014

Most people do several things in the morning without ever thinking twice. They wash their face, brush their teeth and roll on their antiperspirant. Hardly anyone bothers to look at the ingredients on the label, but chances are very good that with every application of antiperspirant you are getting a dose of aluminum.

A recent article in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology titled "If exposure to aluminium in antiperspirants presents health risks, its content should be reduced" offers some sobering points. The French and Swiss scientists summarize their overview:
