the closer you are to cell phone towers the sicker you are

last updated by ura soul

Study shows that the closer you are to cell phone towers the sicker you are ► http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12168254.  

See how bad RF pollution is:

Telegraph article explains frequent cell phone (smartphone or the old type) use causes a five fold increase in brain cancer risk  ► http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/8606104/Mobile-phones-cause-five-fold-increase-in-brain-cancer-risk.html

The cancer study the Telegraph refers to is at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21331446

The LAWSUITS HAVE STARTED - at least 50 are going onhttp://www.rfsafe.com/cell-phone-product-liability-lawsuits-seek-punitive-damages-brain-tumors-usa/.  

 It’s a well known fact that the genius behind the iPhone, Steve Jobs himself, made it clear  he was ” Not Interested” in having an app in the Apple app store which alerted iPhone users of excessive exposure to potentially cancer causing cell phone radiation.  Present CEO ignores RF radiation too.  Maybe the law of karma has run its course and Steve died of cancer? - see the papers below on cancer and RF radiation.  Geniuses are geniuses in one field only unfortunately.  It's sad that Apple says "i phones help you be healthy".  Destroying neurons, as science papers below show, is not HEALTHY. Soon, people will wake up and pressure via lawsuits all manufacturers to make phones that emit far less RF than today.  

Imagine what a cancer epidemic the "internet of things" could cause if every device was connected to the internet and produced wi-fi signals. :)  

Interesting is also this 3 min video with Los Angeles Unified School District teacher saying that Wi-fi made students and teachers sickhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wghaMbzRnb4.   For more on wi-fi dangers see http://www.faim.org/wifisafety/4g-lte-mobile-internet-wifi-largest-pandemic-ever.html

Our "always on lifestyle" needs better healthier technologies that don't harm our health,  Li Fi could replace Wi-Fi.  May take 50 years before they come up with a Safe tech, we had these toxic AC electrical fields causing EMF pollution for a century.  Until that day, we can minimize the bad effects by using wired internet, less wi fi hot spots when tethering, more texting, less talking, more airplane mode. :)   

 Cell phones have caused brain cancer tumors the shape of the phone antenna at the exact location where phone was held against head by the person.  So, it's good to try to always use speaker mode or a wired headset (some have air) to minimize RF to the head. :)

Bluetooth is unhealthy too at current SAR levelshttp://www.rfsafe.com/bluetooth-radiation-dangerous-cell-phone-radiation/.  CNN gives some tips on how to minimize RF radiation exposurehttp://www.cnn.com/2008/HEALTH/07/31/ep.cell.phones.cancer/index.html.  

Bluetooth devices that fit in or around the ear typically radiate at 0.23 watts per kilogram (W/Kg).   This level of 0.23 W/Kg is 10 to 100 times higher than the RF exposure levels shown to make the blood-brain barrier pathologically leaky, allowing toxins and toxic molecules to cross the blood-brain barrier. This is reported by Salford, Persson, Schirmacher to cause neuron death at 0.012 to 0.002 W/Kghttp://www.bioinitiative.org/report/wp-content/uploads/pdfs/sec10_2012_Effects_Electromagnetic_Fields_Wireless_Communication.pdf.  

See also Nerve cell damage in mammalian brain after exposure to microwaves from GSM mobile phones.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1241519/ which makes it clear that RF radiation can damage NEURONS. The full paper is at ► http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1241519/pdf/ehp0111-000881.pdf.

Many studies reported that one 2 hour exposure to cell phone radiation will result in pathological leakage of the blood-brain barrier. The effect occurs immediately and is still seen at 14 days and at 50 days post-exposure at only 0.012 W/Kg to 0.002 W/Kg..  For details see this paper in Pathophysiology called Increased blood-brain barrier permeability in mammalian brain 7 days after exposure to the radiation from a GSM-900 mobile phone.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19345073

These studies show neuron death (brain cells) at SARs of only 0.012 W/Kg. Bluetooth devices are worn for hours at a time. A bluetooth device which radiates at a higher intensity than some cell phones that are still risky in terms of SAR, worn for more hours than a cell phone is typically used – would not be a healthy choice.

Radiation Can Dramatically Increase In A Car, so it's best to talk outside of the car ► The RF waves are reflected back at you from the metal of the car. Also, the cell phone has a hard time sending its signal out of the car because of the metal, and increases its transmitting strength to compensate as you travel making new connections to different  cell towers.

Go infertile?  Study Finds Significant Decrease in Sperm Activity After Cell Phone Exposurehttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4410031

Miscarriage?  Study finds being 100 meters from cell phone tower increases risk of miscarriagehttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=25877464.

Cancer tumors appear at RF levels well below FCC limitshttp://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0006291X15003988 (remember some phones have SAR very close to FCC limit)

The more you use a cell phone, the lower grades you havehttp://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/12/19/cell-phone-use.aspx

The closer you are to cell towers, the more health issues you havehttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12168254

Governments around the world are limiting or banning Wi Fi in schoolshttp://www.wifi-in-schools-australia.org/p/worldwide.html.  

France banned Wi Fi in daycares and limited wireless infrastructurehttp://takebackyourpower.net/news/2015/02/01/france-new-law-bans-wifi-in-daycares-restricts-wireless-infrastructure/.

Teachers may be liable for exposing kids to Wi Fi radiationhttp://thebridgenewsservice.com/2015/02/26/school-boards-left-on-the-hook-for-wi-fi-injuries/

The allowed radiation limits throughout the world are insane, to say the least. We are talking about values for RF radiation up to 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 (10 to the 18th) times higher than nature’s background radiation, to which the human body has adapted through many 100,000s of years...

A lot of "smart" appliances today come with RF transmitters that pollute your house with RF 24-7.  You can disable those by figuring out how.  A cheap $12 RF meter can tell you which ones.

LIST OF 20 STUDIES PROVING CELL PHONES CAUSE CANCER when used too much, indicating current SAR levels are far too high:


1) An independent study commissioned by U.S. wireless carrier T-Mobile found that cell phone radiation directly initiates and promotes the formation of cancerhttp://www.hese-project.org/hese-uk/en/papers/ecolog2000.pdf

2) The renowned Interphone study also found that regular cell phone use at just 30 minutes per day over 10 years increases the risk of gliomas by 40 percent. It also found that tumors were more likely to form on the side of the head where a cell phone is most prominently held ►  http://www.bioinitiative.org/freeaccess/press_release/docs/Interphone.pdf

3) A review of 23 epidemiological studies conducted by seven scientists concluded that cell phones cause a "harmful association" between cell phones and cancer. The only included studies that didn't suggest this were "lower quality" ones that researchers say "failed to meet scientific best practices" -- these studies were all funded by the mobile phone industry ►

4) Researchers from the Hardell Research Group, which is noted for conducting what many consider to be the highest-quality studies on the subject, found a "consistent pattern" of increased risks for both glioma and acoustic neuroma in conjunction with mobile phone use

5) A study out of France observed similar outcomes associated with prolonged exposure to electromagnetic frequencies from mobile phones. Scientists noted higher rates of gliomas and temporal tumors from "occupational and urban mobile phone use." In response, the EMF watchdog group Powerwatch noted that this study supports the categorization of mobile phone radiation as a "probable human carcinogen."

6) A study of nearly 800,000 middle-aged UK women found that those who used cell phones for 10 years or more had a 250 percent increased risk of developing an acoustic neuroma. The longer the women used the phones, the higher their risk

7) Similarly, a study conducted by the group Lonn found that acoustic neuromas are increasingly more likely to develop the longer a person uses a mobile phone

8) In Sweden, researchers studying adult brain tumor cases found that individuals with the highest cumulative use of mobile phones also had the highest risk of developing brain cancer

9) The Hardell group conducted a study in 2009 which found that RF-EMFs from mobile and cordless phones are directly associated with malignant brain tumors. This study specifically states that wireless radiation initiates and promotes carcinogenesis ►

11 STUDIES Show Wireless Radiation from Cell Phones Can Cause pituitary, thyroid, stem cell, oral, parotid, lymph node, breast, blood, prostate and eye cancers:

1) The body's "master" gland, also known as the pituitary gland, is responsible for producing hormones and regulating other key bodily systems. But a study out of France found that cell phone use greatly increases the risk that the pituitary gland will become cancerous

2) The thyroid gland, which similarly produces hormones in addition to regulating body temperature, is also affected by mobile phone radiation. An Israeli study found that rates of cell phone use are directly proportional to the risk of developing thyroid gland cancer

3) Many health experts would contend that solar radiation poses the greatest threat to healthy skin. But a study out of Sweden found that melanoma risk is greatly accelerated by mobile phone use

4) A controversial Powerwatch study found that cell phone use nearly triples the risk of neuroepithelial tumors, which are a result of stem cell cancer

5) Another study out of Israel confirmed a direct association between cell phone use and cancers of the mouth. Based on 460 cases of parotid gland tumors, researchers observed a direct association between mobile phone radiation and cancers of the parotid, the salivary gland located right next to where users typically hold their phones

6) A separate study, also out of Israel, found that parotid gland cancers have increased in prevalence by 400 percent in the country between 1970 and 2006, which scientists link to increased mobile phone use ► 

7) An extensive review of more than 12 separate studies looking at health outcomes from exposure to radiation from mobile phone, television and radio broadcast towers found that cancers in general, and specifically cancers of the brain and blood (leukemia), are greatly increased

8) Lymph nodes, a key component of the immune system, don't like cell phone radiation much, either. An Australian study found that typical exposure to cell phone radiation greatly increases lymphoma risk

9) Back in the U.S., a study looking at young women with breast cancer found that regular use of smartphones can trigger the formation of breast cancer. This is especially true when women carry their phones in their blouses or bras, where phones are pressed directly against the breasts

10) Researchers in Germany have also linked mobile phone radiation to uveal melanoma and other cancers of the eye

11) Practically every other type of cancer not covered by one of the aforementioned studies was identified in a large-scale Brazilian study, which linked mobile phone radiation to cancers of the prostate, breasts, lungs, kidneys and liver. Shockingly, more than 80 percent of identified deaths in Brazil's third largest city, Belo Horizonte, occurred less than 500 meters away from one of the city's 300 cell phone antennas

The next 34 studies show that Wi-Fi wrecks our health just as cell phones do (same RF radiation).  The papers listed are only those where exposures were 16V/m or below.  Someone using a Wi-Fi-enabled tablet computer can be exposed to electromagnetic fields up to 16V/m.

SAMSUNG best selling Phones emit much less RF radiation than most best selling phones, and Samsung Note models emit less RF than most Samsung phones, Note emits 0.2 watt/Kg, i.e. 6 times less RF radiation than I Phone 6 at 1.2 watt/kg.  Since a human being weighs 60-100 Kg, the Apple latest iPhone 6 can expose you to 500 times more RF radiation than Note from Samsunghttp://www.rfsafe.com/samsung-cell-phones-rated-lowest-radiation-cell-phones/.  The link explains which phones have lowest and highest RF radiation.  Shop smart and shop for lowest SAR phones if you want to avoid cancer and other issues high RF causes.
