Radiation from Wireless Technology Elevates Blood Glucose and Body Temperature in 40-Year-Old Type 1 Diabetic Male

"Conclusions:  The events reported have serious implications for the use of wireless technology and necessitates reevaluation of its near-ubiquitous presence, especially in medical facilities and hospitals. The effects – elevated blood glucose, hyperthermia and cardiac arrhythmia – are serious and warrant immediate action to protect patients. Hospitals and medical facilities should minimize their patients’ RF exposures from “dirty” electricity and wireless technology, returning to the use of dedicated cabled communication systems."

Abstract

A type 1 diabetic male reports multiple instances when his blood glucose was dramatically elevated by the presence of microwave radiation from wireless technology and plummeted when the radiation exposure ended. In one instance, his body temperature elevated in addition to his blood glucose. Both remained elevated for nearly 48 h after exposure with the effect gradually decreasing. Possible mechanisms for microwave radiation elevating blood glucose include effects on glucose transport proteins and ion channels, insulin conformational changes and oxidative stress. Temperature elevation may be caused by microwave radiation-triggered Ca 2+ efflux, a mechanism similar to malignant hyperthermia. The potential for radiation from wireless technology to cause serious biological effects has important implications and necessitates a reevaluation of its near-ubiquitous presence, especially in hospitals and medical facilities.

Conclusions

The events reported have serious implications for the use of wireless technology and necessitates reevaluation of its near-ubiquitous presence, especially in medical facilities and hospitals. The effects – elevated blood glucose, hyperthermia and cardiac arrhythmia – are serious and warrant immediate action to protect patients. Hospitals and medical facilities should minimize their patients’ RF exposures from “dirty” electricity and wireless technology, returning to the use of dedicated cabled communication systems.

A statement buried deep in ICNIRP’s own article supports this approach:

Different groups in a population may have differences in their ability to tolerate a particular NIR (non-ionizing radiation) exposure. For example, children, the elderly, and some chronically ill people might have a lower tolerance for one or more forms of NIR exposure than the rest of the population. Under such circumstances, it may be useful or necessary to develop separate guideline levels for different groups within the general population, but it may be more effective to adjust the guidelines for the general population to include such groups.
