Do Cell Phones Weaken Our Ability to Fight Disease?

Do Cellphones Weaken Our Ability to Fight Disease?
published on November 5, 2013 by Richard Maxwell, Ph.D. and Toby Miller, Ph.D. in Greening the Media,

Our brains evolved to keep us happy and healthy, then along came electronics.

Toward the end of the 2012 documentary, Resonance—Beings of Frequency, the narrator tells us that the cellphone industry has been asking the wrong question about cellphone-related cancers. Rather than examine how cellphones and communications towers cause cancer, the industry should ask how cellphones prevent the human body from curing the disease.1

It’s a pivotal moment in the film, coming after descriptions of numerous cases linking cell towers and phones to biological harm: cancer clusters in a small town, the collapse of bee colonies, the decline of migratory bird populations, and a rising number of people afflicted by electromagnetic hypersensitivity (a popular butt of jokes about crazies wearing aluminum hats).

The Crime of Chernobyl - A Model for Fukushima

The crime of Chernobyl – a model for Fukushima
by Wladimir Tchertkoff, author of “The Crime of Chernobyl: the Nuclear Gulag”
April 2013

For a quarter of a century a systematic crime against humanity has been perpetrated by people in senior positions at the heart of Europe. The people living in Western Europe, so advanced technologically, remain indifferent and largely disinformed. In order to preserve the consensus around the military and civilian nuclear industry, the nuclear lobby and the official medical establishment have, for the past 26 years, knowingly condemned millions of human guinea pigs to an experiment on their bodies with new diseases in the vast laboratory provided by the territories contaminated by Chernobyl. Children are being treated like laboratory animals, under observation from French and German scientists, and French NGO’s like the CEPN, Mutadis Consultants, ETHOS and CORE, who must take their share of the responsibility. (Translator’s note: CEPN is the Centre d’étude sur l’Evaluation de la Protection dans le domaine Nucléaire ; Mutadis, ETHOS and CORE are all offshoots of the French nuclear industry, financed either through Electricité de France or the Autorité de Sureté Nucléaire.)


Photo 2005: Suffering from thyroid cancer, Oleg Shapiro, 54, and Dima Bogdanovich, 13, receive care at a thyroid hospital in Minsk, where surgery is performed on a daily basis. As a liquidator, Oleg was exposed to extreme levels of radiation. It was his third thyroid operation. Dima’s mother claims that Chernobyl’s nuclear fallout is responsible for her son’s cancer, but his doctors are more cautious: Belarusian officials are often instructed to downplay the severity of the radiation. Ref: National Geographic, March 2014.


The same fate awaits the Japanese people and their children living in areas contaminated by the Fukushima disaster because the same strategy is being put in place in Japan with the same players, the same pseudo-scientific justifications and under the aegis of the same authorities.

France: Text Adopted by the Senate for Better Regulation of Electromagnetic Waves

The draft text also aims to render
obligatory in primary schools the
deactivating of wireless equipment
when not being used for pedagogical
activities.
Text Adopted by the Senate for better regulation of electromagnetic waves
SudOuest.fr, avec AFP, 26 June 2014 (translated by the Editor of this blog)

The official text of the draft law is available here in French.

The Senate adopted Wednesday a text for better regulation of exposure of people to electromagnetic waves

The Senate adopted at first reading on Wednesday [25 June 2014] the draft law of the Ecologists for better regulation of exposure to electromagnetic waves, which affects in particular users of cell phones.

163 senators voted in favor of the text and 149 against. From the left, socialists, ecologists and communists voted in favor. In contrast, the RDSE group (majority PRG – Radical Party of the Left) opposed it, as did the UMP (Union for a Popular Movement). All the centrists abstained. The draft law must go to the National Assembly for a second reading where it had been adopted on 23 January this year.

Its objective is to set in stone the principle of “sobriété” [translated: “circumstance moderateness”] regarding exposure to waves from cell phones, Wi-Fi routers and relay antennas, and not a “principle of precaution” as the ecologists had proposed in an initial text a year ago. It foresees, among other things, coordination on several levels during installation of radioelectric equipment and better information on emission sources, and bans advertising for tablets destined for those under 14 years of age (at risk of a 75,000-euro fine), as is already the case for cell phones.

Wi-Fi Radiation - New Device Makes It Visible At Last

Cell phone in Wi-Fi mode - the red swirls
above the phone show that the strongest
signal is found nearest the phone.  
As pretty as these images are [of the strength of wireless signals], let’s not forget that these swirling colors let us see pulsed digital radiation (a.k.a electromagnetic fields) which thousands of studies link to adverse biological effects and a myriad of diseases and illnesses including cancer, brain tumors, infertility, DNA damage, suppression of the immune system and much more.

WiFi Radiation – New Device Makes It Visible At Last
Posted by Lloyd Burrell, electricsense.com, 23 June 2014

Luis Hernan has produced a series of photographs that show the strength of wireless signals according to color.

He’s also produced an app that can be downloaded to a smart phone which can act as a very basic EMF detector. The app is free.

Wi-Fi radiation at building entrance -
interesting to see about halfway up the steps
there is less Wi-Fi radiation than further away
from the building and then the radiation gets
stronger as you go nearer the entrance.



I spoke to Luis yesterday about his device and how he produced these photos. Here is the color code Luis used so you can understand his photos:

Blue – denotes the weakest signal
Violet – slightly stronger
Green – slightly stronger
Yellow – slightly stronger
Red – strongest signal

Here are Luis’s photos and underneath are my comments:
[See original article.  We have posted two photos here.]

How These Images Were Created

Luis used a DSLR camera mounted on a tripod. He took these pictures using long exposure photography. So he left the aperture open for about 5 minutes. Then he used what he calls an “Arduino based Kirlian device”. This is essentially a WiFi sensor connected to a simple processor connected to an LED strip. It’s the LED strip that makes the colors.

These pictures were created by Luis moving his device through the whilst taking the photo. Luis wore dark clothes to avoid being included in the photo.

Massachusetts: Why the Hilltowns Need to Regulate Antenna Placement

This text, originally published in the West County Independent, Shelburne Falls, was written by Jonathan Mirin, whose wife, Godeliève, is electro-hypersensitive.  AT&T is proposing to erect a 100-foot cell tower on the road where they live. The tower could have an impact on the health of Shelburne residents, which include elderly people and children living about 75 meters from the tower. The sharpest spike in health effects, such as the cancer clusters which have been documented around the world, tend to occur within 500 meters. 

We have been "attacked" by the pro-tower comment below, requesting us to remove the beautiful photograph of the Bridge of Flowers. Obviously, this person has no conception of the very real health risks of electromagnetic radiation, to which we are all susceptible and what it is like to be electro-hypersensitive.

Why the Hilltowns Need to Regulate Antenna Placement or All I Really Need to Know I Learned After My Wife Got Sick
by Jonathan Mirin, West County Independent, 19 June 2014

"Doubt is our product since it is the best means of competing with the 'body of fact' that exists in the minds of the general public. It is also the means of establishing a controversy."
- Tobacco executive internal memo, 1969

History was never my favorite subject. I preferred English, theatre, religion — subjects where the imagination seemed unrestricted by the weight of historical facts. Of course, I had heard the truism about not being able to understand the present without knowing the past. I appreciated the idea intellectually. But it wasn't until my wife became sick in spring of 2010 and we came to understand, after three torturous years, in the fall of 2012, that the root of her suffering was that she was sensitive to "RF" (radio-frequency) wireless radiation of the sort emitted by cell towers, cell phones, computers trying to pick up Wi-fi, Wi-fi enabled routers, cordless phones, tablets, our electric meter, etc. etc. etc.

Swiss Farmers' Union Publishes Two Fact Sheets on Electrosmog

Swiss Farmers’ Union publishes two fact sheets on electrosmog
by Hans-U. Jacob, www.gigaherz.ch, 6 June 2014 (summary of article in German, "Äs taget bim Schwyzer Pure Association - Morgendämmerung beim Schweizerischen Bauernverband",  by the Editor of this blog)

With so many farmers having damaged animals, the Swiss Farmers’ Union (Schweizer Bauernverband) turned to the association Gigaherz for information on non-ionizing radiation. The Union is very well represented in the Federal Council in Bern. The pressure of Union members complaining about harm to animals and people became so great that the association was forced to act.

Both fact sheets begin with the same text:
Again and again farmers log on to the SBV (Farmers’ Union) and complain about health problems in their herds, which they attribute to different external influences, summarized as "electrosmog" : mobile phone antennas, radio antennas, railway lines, power lines, electric and magnetic fields, and other technical equipment...

The Globalization of Cancer

RE-POSTED 21 June 2014: The number of cancers being diagnosed in the world each year has leaped to more than 14 million, says the World Health Organization.  Developing countries are disproportionately affected by the increasing numbers of cancers. More than 60% of the world’s total cases occur in Africa, Asia, and Central and South America, and these regions account for about 70% of the world’s cancer deaths, a situation that is made worse by the lack of early detection and access to treatment.

This March 2012 post is based on an article by Dr. Annie Sasco about the globalization of cancer.  I wish to thank SOS pour un Monde Meilleur for having shared this information with me. 

“Dr. Sasco has been a cancer epidemiologist for 25 years and has worked for 22 years at the IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer).  She is currently at the University Victor Segalen, Bordeaux, France, where she directs an INSERM (Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale) epidemiological team for the prevention of cancer.  Founding member of an equitable coffee trade group several years ago, she defines herself as a feminist and world citizen, a mix of ’68 and Harvard.    She has done an immense and remarkable work informing the population on the disaster and explosion of cancer that we cannot stop without mobilization of the public.   Our toxic, harmful carcinogenic products and out-dated medicines are being exported to less favored populations.   How can we still tolerate that these products, which have been declared “toxic” in our industrialized countries, continue to be distributed on the African continent and elsewhere notably by saying, “this is going to treat you, it is good for you …”  

Each of us can react and is partially responsible.

19 Ways They Are Giving Us Cancer

Mammograms cause cancer by exposing the body to ionizing
radiation that can be 1,000 times greater than that from a
chest x-ray, which we know poses a cancer risk.
BPA, fluoride, pesticides, paraben, aluminum, chemtrails/geoengineering, sunscreen, sugar, common and medical radiation, cell phones, mercury, vaccines, dental fillings, light bulbs, high fructose corn syrup, microwave ovens, food irradiation, aspartame, chlorine, sodium nitrate and other preservatives, nuclear radiation, genetically modified crops...

19 Ways They Are Giving Us Cancer
livefreelivenatural.com, 21 March 2014

“In earlier times it was easier to control a million people than physically to kill a million people. Today it is infinitely easier to kill a million people then to control a million people.” - Zbigniew Brzezinski (Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group, Carter/Obama Advisor).

The cancer epidemic is a soft-kill operation and a move by the world’s so-called elites to cull the human population. It is well documented that the Club of Rome, Bill Gates, Ted Turner, the Rockefellers, Warren Buffet and many other globalists plan to dominate and decimate humanity with their population reduction agenda.

As we will see, the globalists first cause the cancer and then provide us with their ineffective treatments (not cures) for profit. This method is known as Problem – Reaction – Solution.

According to the American Cancer Society, 1,638,910 new cancer cases will arise in the United States during 2012. Approximately 577,190 American cancer patients are expected to die from their cancer this year as well. One in every two men will suffer from cancer (one in four will die) as will one in every three women (one in five will die). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cancer is the second leading cause of death, closely trailing heart disease.

Interview with Dr. Dominique Belpomme by Radio Canada on Electromagnetic Fields and Electrosensitivity

Electromagnetic Fields Likely to Cause Alzheimer's in Electrosensitive Persons
ici.radio-canada.ca,
6 June 2014

(Summary of Radio-Canada Interview by the Editor of this blog)
Original broadcast in French


Dr. Belpomme, President of ARTAC (Association for Research on Treatment Against Cancer) is asked by the interviewer about his creation nearly three years ago of the European Cancer and Environment Research Institute (ECERI).  The Institute collaborates with 15-20 European teams researching the environmental causes of not only cancer but also other diseases and disorders, including Alzheimer's and autism.

According to Dr. Dominique Belpomme, 80-90% of cancers are linked to the environment. Living was not always “carcinogenic”. Cancer is a recent disease due to the fact that it has become a scourge of huge proportions. Cancer as well as obesity and type 2 diabetes have exploded. We are obliged to ask why. The answer is: life style and pollution:  chemical pollution, pesticides, electromagnetic fields (EMF) produced by wireless technology. Do we continue this technology for purely economic reasons or do we take into account the very high health costs that we will be paying as a result?

"We Need to Reduce Our Families' Exposure to RF/EMF Microwave Radiation"



Following are excerpts from the excellent Website “rfemf.com”, including the transcript of the author of the constitutional argument in the Morrison v. Portland Public Schools and a review of Dr. David Michaels's book, "Doubt Is Their Product".  The site has been set up by a concerned citizen who wants to "make it safer for all the teachers and children in the [California] Petaluma School District".  Here is an account of her personal experience:

A Personal Experience

My next-door neighbor and I were the same age when we got our first cell phones back in 1992, but our choices and outcomes were completely different. Steve Terrel, a Petaluma high graduate, was in medical sales and used his cell phone a lot for his job: driving around, making calls and closing many deals over the next ten years.

I started down the same path, but after the first three months, a haircut revealed a bald spot over my ear — right where I always held my phone. I stopped using that cell phone immediately and didn't get another cell phone for ten years.

Ten Years Later, Where Did We End Up?

Steve, unfortunately, died of a brain tumor in 2002, caused by his cell phone — one of the many such documented cases around the world. I am writing this web site to help you understand the dangers of too much RF/EMF in our lives and in our children's lives.

In the last five years, I have lost four friends to cancer between the ages of 37 to 56 — all of them non-smokers, all of them working in and around wireless technology. Something is up and science is reporting about it daily.

Top Biochemist Calls to Abolish Smart Meters, Wi-Fi in Schools, and Baby Monitors

Top Biochemist Calls to Abolish Smart Meters, WiFi in Schools, and Baby Monitors
by Kevin Samson, Guest, Waking Times,
27 May 2014

Our modern world is creating an electromagnetic soup filled with electrical pulses, radio frequencies, computer screens, wireless signals, as well as personal devices such as cell phones and gadgets that are emitting damaging radiation. There are many peer-reviewed scientific studies drawing conclusions that should concern us all, but particularly for young children and pregnant women. Government agencies are even doing battle amongst themselves over outdated scientific information that still impacts current regulations.

Recently, neuroscientist and professor, Olle Johansson, PhD, offered a comprehensive view of the many issues surrounding EMFs, including an industry-wide attempt by telecom to cover up the negative consequences. It is a must-see lecture that can be viewed here.

Adding further credence to the dangers of EMFs, another well-regarded scientist who has eight international awards for his work, Prof. Martin Pall, a Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University, is also calling for action against common emitters of electromagnetic pollution. In the video below, you will hear how he goes so far as to say that these devices are a biohazard which need to be abolished.

Saying Good-Bye to Wi-Fi - A Waldorf School Takes a Precautionary Step

Is this one way to have Wi-Fi removed from schools? Good ideas here, but it’s not that easy…

Saying Good-Bye to Wi-Fi - A Waldorf School Takes a Precautionary Step
by Ronald E. Koetzsch, PhD

In the summer of 2010, a prospective parent walked into the office of Caroline Askew, admissions director at the City of Lakes Waldorf School in Minneapolis. The parent was an attorney with two young daughters. Caroline is accustomed to answering all kinds of questions from parents, but this mother had questions and concerns that Caroline had never heard before.

The parent first inquired whether or not the school utilized a WiFi system – an array of wireless transmitters that allows persons with laptop computers or smartphones to access the Internet and their email from any location in the building. On learning that WiFi was in use, she asked Caroline, “Would the school be open to the possibility of removing the system?” WiFi transmitters constantly emit pulsed radio frequency radiation (RFR), and this mother was concerned about the possible effect on the health of her children. She had done much research and had compiled a collection of documents – articles from scientific journals and abstracts of scientific papers – that pointed to the possible dangers of microwave radiation in a WiFi environment. She asked Caroline if the school would be willing to consider those documents in order to make an informed judgment.

Switzerland and Electrosmog: Wake Up Before It Is Too Late!

This image was published in "GHI" in 2002, a newspaper
delivered to every household in the canton of Geneva.
Reading about the history of development of wireless technologies in Switzerland, it seems that the country is regressing in terms of caring for the health of its population.

Today, in 2014, the health authorities are not speaking out, especially regarding precautionary measures which continue to lie, invisible to the general public, in their official documents.  The media used to report on these. Today it does not.  The authorities seem to follow the national studies which have declared there are no harmful non-thermal biological effects from wireless technologies, while hundreds, indeed, several thousand international studies have demonstrated the opposite.

The advertising of the telecommunications operators and manufacturers has done a splendid job of luring people into buying the latest gadgets and applications and creating addictions to them.  Revenue from these ads silences the media from reporting on health effects.  Revenue from shares in telecoms companies silences members of Parliament.

Health professionals receive no education on how to diagnose and treat environmental sensitivities.  Heavily influenced by the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, they know only how to prescribe medication for existing diseases and use expensive diagnostic tools to identify these illnesses.

Just as in the United States, there is a move in Switzerland to provide every student with a tablet from a young age, which requires installation of Wi-Fi in classrooms.

The electrosensitive, comprising at least 5% of the population - some 400,000 persons - are getting sicker from the proliferation of this technology.  No one cares about them.  They are being treated far worse than handicapped persons, by being ridiculed, ostracized, labeled crazy, just plain ignored.  Their electrosensitivity is neither recognized nor compensated, nor are they provided safer environments in which to live and work.

So, people remain ignorant, meanwhile each day radiating themselves with their beloved gadgets, worse, radiating their children.

No one is taking responsibility for their health - not themselves, not physicians, not educators, not politicians, not even parents.  Only when their own children start getting sick from this technology will they wake up - and then, it will probably be too late.
