Recent EMF findings since 2011. Update.

Discussion in 'The EMF Rx' started by Jack Kruse, Feb 10, 2014.

    This is all courtesy of Dr. Devra Davis. If you have not read her book "Disconnect" you should.

    • In May 2011, an expert committee of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization (WHO) classified “cell phone radiation as possibly carcinogenic to humans”--.a category shared with lead, engine exhaust, DDT, and jet fuel. In light of this nearly unanimous position, the IARC Director, Christopher Wild MD, PhD advised consumers to “consider ways of reducing their exposure.”

    • In March, 2012, John P. Wargo, PhD. Chair of the Yale Environmental Studies Program along with Hugh S. Taylor, MD PhD, Chair of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at Yale released a report on “Cell phone Technology, Exposure and Health Effects” a peer-reviewed publication in Nature Scientific Reports, which found that prenatal exposures throughout gestation in mice significantly damages brain function, structure and behavior and suggested that these exposures could contribute to children’s behavioral disorders.

    • In July 2012, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued a review of cell phone testing, entitled, “Exposure and Testing of Mobile Phones Should be Reassessed” , prompted in part by an EHT expert peer-reviewed report on brain modelling, prepared by former industry advisors, Om P. Gandhi, Alvaro De Salles and others, The Washington Post reported that, “The GAO has found the Federal Communications Commission’s cell phone-safety regulations are woefully out of date. Congress may also urge the agency, whose radiation-limit rules are 15 years old, to take a fresh look at how children in particular may be affected by radio waves.”

    • The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has weighed in on this issue. Chairman Robert Block wrote to the FCC urging reconsideration and review of standards specifically noting that:

    • Experts in male reproductive health including Ashok Agarwal, MD, PhD, Head of Andrology at the Cleveland Clinic and Laureate Professor, John C. Aitken, MD, PhD of the Australian National R have also reported both experimental and clinical findings that link heavy cell-phone use with sperm damage and reduced sperm count.

    • While evidence on brain cancer has been inconsistent, leaders of the World Health Organization study on mobile phones and brain cancer, Siegal Sadetzki and Elisabeth Cardis, have recently urged that,

    “Even a small risk [of brain cancer] at the individual level could eventually result in a considerable number of tumors and become an important public-health issue. Simple and low-cost measures, such as the use of text messages, hands-free kits and/or the loudspeaker mode of the phone could substantially reduce exposure to the brain from mobile phones. Therefore, until definitive scientific answers are available, the adoption of such precautions, particularly among young people, is advisable.”

    • Consistent with this precautionary recommendation, Industry also advises consumers to take precautions now, as this short list of advisories taken directly from product safety packets indicates:

    In 2011, the iPhone 4S product safety packet contained these words: "iPhone's SAR measurement may exceed the FCC exposure guidelines for body-worn operation if positioned less than 15 mm (5/8th inch) from the body (e.g.; when carrying iPhone in your pocket)...... When using iPhone near your body for voice calls or for wireless data transmission over a cellular network, keep iPhone at least 15 mm (5/8th inch) away from the body, and only use carrying cases, belt clips or holsters that do not have metal parts and that maintain at least 15 mm (5/8th inch) separation between iPhone and the body." “May exceed the FCC exposure guidelines for body-worn operations if positioned less than 15 mm (5 / 8 inch) from the body (e.g. when carrying iPhone in your pocket).

    “Children, however, are not little adults and are disproportionately impacted by all

    environmental exposures, including cell phone radiation. In fact, according to [the International

    Agency for Research on Cancer], when used by children, the average RF energy deposition is

    two times higher in the brain and 10 times higher in the bone marrow of the skull, compared

    with mobile phone use by adults.”

    esearch Council Center of Excellence,The “fine print warning” found in the BlackBerry Tour user manual states,

    Use hands-free operation if it is available and keep the BlackBerry device at least 0.98 in. (25 mm) from your body (including the abdomen of pregnant women and the lower abdomen of teenagers) when the BlackBerry device is turned on and connected to the wireless network. For more information about carrying your BlackBerry device, see the holster information in the "Additional safety guidelines" section of this document.”

    In 2012, the Samsung, Convoy 2 included on p. 38 of their Product Safety and Warranty Information that comes with new phones. It states,

    “Restricting Children’s Access to your Mobile Device

    Your mobile device is not a toy. Do not allow children to play with it because they could hurt themselves and others, damage the mobile device,or make calls that increase your mobile device bill. Keep the mobile device and all its parts and accessories out of the reach of small children.”

    I loved your tip on the Redox potential blog today.....about how the more Gs you have the more radiation there is. I try to minimize cell phone use but I do wish there was a way to keep using the lower G network once my current dumb phone gives up its life.

    well you should have liked the info more on the new IR sensors of the ipad and iphone 5 S.........that shows you how much the world does not know. And it lets you know how much apple does know

    Smartphones have the ability to turn on/off various radios. "Airplane mode" mutes everything (state of phone while I sleep, or as often as possible when I dont care to have it bother me), but an easy way to mitigate "G's" is just disabling your mobile data connection when not in use. This will restrict your phone to connecting to the oldest tech towers and disable the "G" radios.

    Yea, buncha jackasses... Too bad they don't share the research papers that helped them decide it was worth implementing... they'd lose a bunch of customers (albiet, probably not NEARLY enough considering people love ignorance... but this should be an even more profound indication... considering they aren't sharing, it must have been quite bad).

    I really hope that google.com/loon dies, since they HAVE to now what they are creating for us.

    How do you do that?

    Depends on your phone and the operating system it is running.

    Regarding disabling mobile data: It will always be buried in the settings, and usually be associated with "mobile networks" or "connections" or "networks" (some variation thereof) if you have an additional menu level. Once in there, it may be as simple as choosing to "disable mobile data", or it may require selecting the antenna/radio type, and choosing the one without any G's in the name :)

    Airplane mode: this one is typically easier to get to, and will be labeled "airplane mode". somewhere in the settings again, but if you have the ability to download apps, you may be able to find an airplane mode app to accomplish this for you.

    ADDITIONAL NOTE: GPS must be disabled separately, as it is my experience that GPS is not always disabled with airplane mode. Again, this option would be under "settings" somewhere, it may be under "location services" or may just be called "GPS" or GPS Radio

    I really can not help to think that we always find ways to still use the things that hurts us.

    Why would we need to be reached 100% of the time?

    Why can we not turn a device off? Airplane mode, still that piece of crap is alive as a toy or anything else, stealing energy from us.

    Why do you need a GPS? Get a map if you are getting lost all the time.

    For sure i must rant about this, when living in the country with tons of smartphones in everyones hands... I do not have any understanding why everyone must be online OR using a gadget for everyday living. First you look kind of stupid, walking and reading on smartphone. Second, everything else.

    Myself, have not used my GSM phone for over two years now, perhaps some sms but it is always turned off, i decide if and when i can contact others that way. I have no pads or smartshit, i use a fountain pen and paper. If i would like to write anything else, a typewriter.

    When someone needs to contact me, find me live or send a letter. If anything has happened, what kind of change can i do? It has already been done... I am not a doctor in service, period!

    By letting all this technology down i found my time change in a big way, no time spending on doing service to gadgets, no stealing of my power and thoughts, simply letting that trend pass by...

    Ok, i may sound a little harsh BUT we live in a period of time where i think we must change our complete way of living, i intend to do so...

    We had a patient interview in today's lecture. He was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis 45 years ago. He talked about all the drugs he has been on and off, side effects and whatnot. The whole lecture I was trying to figure out WHY he got RA. He looked like healthy, and from what I gather from his talk, he is very optimistic, happy-go-lucky type of guy, loves animals and spending time in the outdoors. It seemed so odd to me that he got RA. And then in the end he revealed that his job was working with cables for Telstra(big phone company)........

    I have an old school map in my car. it still gets use. especially when traffic is snarled. love my ADC maps... I plan on buying more soon. there's something about orienteering the old fashioned way. I can't wait until the kids are old enough to go geocashing. We're going to do it the old fashioned way with a compass and a map. no GPS for us.

    I had to recently get a new phone (much to my dismay) due to my work requirements I needed to get a "Smart Phone" b/c I'm expected to have access to email - when I'm at client sites even if I'm not working on a computer. uggh... so I "upgraded". What's interesting - is 1/2 the time I never use it. Its usually off if I'm working from home. No need for it... if you need me call me on my work phone. If you're family - leave a msg. I'll call you back. there are days on the weekend - I don't turn it on and I leave it at home when we head out for the day (GASP!!!) If I do bring it -it's off.

    Chaos and Havoc don't get to use the phone.... nor will they get one when they're older....

    So many good points and I kept check marking them in my head - feeling the same way until this turned into a question mark for me:
    and this:
    Must be a new type of typewriter, maybe even called a computer....As I find myself spending considerable amount of time here and on the net in general, I am curious how else Peter is able to share with us all those numerous links that we all get to much to enjoy ?
    I had to put both question mark and an exclamation one next to this paragraph:
    Wow! I am sure that his loved ones would want him to be there for them not as a doctor in service, but someone who would care enough to give a helping hand, an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on, if needed. At the very least, they would want to say a proper good-bye.

    Okey, this is how i do it...
    When i use a computer, i do it for special reasons. This forum is one and when i share links i have done my thinking offline first and then with focus get what i want to share. Since i have been into business, money and computing and semiconductors i learned how to collect, strip and analyze data.
    Before i do my postings i have been doing most of my thoughts by writing in books, reading books, typing on a typewriter so i do not have to think and surf at the same time...

    Yes you are right... I live like many others from my bloodlines, not always in touch. The ones i love and care for i spend time with, i meet them all the time and others come and go. It has a price, sometimes i loose friends, dear ones but what happens is done. Can sound harsh but that is how i work. Call me weird but i do not think in good-byes i believe in contact thru the whole time and that last moment has not been any problem for me yet even if i lost many that where close to me.

    Everyone that i have a deep connection to know that i am always there for them even over distance, my door is always open like my own body and soul so i do all my deep loving the old fashioned way.
