|"I have no doubt in my mind that at the present time, the greatest polluting element in the earth's environment is the proliferation of electromagnetic fields. I consider that to be far greater on a global scale than warming and the increase in chemical elements in the environment."
Robert O. Becker, MD
"Americans aren't aware of the dangers of electromagnetic radiation. We're endangering ourselves from TVs, cellular phones, neon lights, electric light bulbs...It didn't have to be this way."
Tom and Ray Magliozzi, NPR "Car talk"
Information on this website is intended to assist those with Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) - an ailment in which people incur debilitating symptoms from exposure to low-intensity, non-ionizing Electromagnetic Fields (EMF). Since everyone is exposed to ever increasing EMF loads on a daily basis, this site may be of interest to the general public. Mounting evidence proves that non-thermal EMF causes deleterious biological affects, even at extremely low levels.
Radio frequency (RF)/microwave radiation intensity is rising at an alarming, unsustainable rate as wireless networks are rolled out to download and stream ever more data. The threat of universal wireless internet access looms, with thousands of satellites and balloons beaming Wifi on every inch of Earth. Most jobs require endless hours on a computer, WiFi has gone mainstream in schools, leaving the vulnerable behind and will eventually undermine humanity as "schoolchildren are at risk". Suicide rates as a result of EHS are on the rise.
New cars employ electronic gadgets (including RF identifiers, RADAR, WiFi), and power lines are producing stronger magnetic fields as usage increases. To make things worse, compact fluorescent light bulbs, which produce high amounts of EMF and dirty electricity, have become popular, while wireless "smart meters" are being installed by power companies against peoples permission and making many sick, and unable to inhabit their own homes. Soon, every dishwasher and refrigerator will be equipped with WiFi which cannot be turned off. "This is genocide part I". "This is genocide part II"
It has been estimated that a sub-group consisting of 3% of the population suffers from EHS. That is just an estimate, as fewer have a severe case, whereas many more are mild. The right to pursuit happiness is being stripped from people who are EMF refugees. Yet the mainstream medical community in the U.S. is oblivious to the condition, putting those that suffer in a very vulnerable situation.
The Russians knew of "Radio Wave sickness" as far back as the 1950s since the advent of RADAR. The "Navy" outlined numerous biological effects in 1971. Noteworthy is the use of key word "electromagnetic radiation injury" According to "NASA" "radio sickness" and "microwave sickness" occur at 30 uW/cm2, the U.S. limit is 1000 while the public maximum exposure limit in Russia is 1. A cell phone held to the head is not far from 30, with bursts that exceed the limits. It's like the bite of Dracula; tolerance to pulsed-microwaves is substantially reduced by the thousandths once inflicted with EHS.
In a 1994 report the "Air-Force" (which was held responsible for establishing modern U.S. safety standards) cited alterations in electrical activity of the cerebral cortex, and perturbations in higher functions of the central nervous system in animals at 5 uW/cm2 for 8 hours per day. Then state that a standard of 5000 uW/cm2 for six minutes is reasonable. In the conclusion they wrote that "evidence has shown that exposure to low-intensity radiation can have profound effects on biological processes".
Contradictions abound in this document. Why did they establish such a high intensity for short periods while military personnel are exposed to RADAR 24 hours per day? It's emphasized throughout the document that pulsed microwaves have a particularly potent biological effect. Wifi, cellular phones, RADAR and microwave warfare all employ pulsed microwaves. The ubiquitous switching-mode power supply pulses at radio frequencies. If the population is exposed to pulsed microwaves for ever longer periods why haven't the so called safety standards been changed?
Recent scientific studies reveal the effects of non-thermal, low intensity radiation at the cellular level. Proteins embedded in the cell membrane regulate electrical currents of ions into neurons. Conduction is disrupted as alternating electromagnetic fields (radiation) modify the size and shape of the proteins. Damage occurs from free radicals produced by a surge of calcium (Ca++) ions. "Many, perhaps all non-thermal health effects are produced by activation of voltage gated calcium channels in plasma membranes."
Biological damage includes:
- oxidative stress
- cellular DNA mutations
- breakdown of the blood brain barrier
- melatonin depletion
- sudden death
Once a person becomes sensitized to electromagnetism - whether triggered from chemicals, heavy metals, electromagnetism, or their combination - the symptoms are manifested by very weak electromagnetic fields (EMF), in fact, significantly weaker than most would fathom possible - (many are sensitive to fields less than a millionth of the FCC limits). Therein lies ammunition for the skeptics, whose only convenient explanation is relegated to a psychosomatic or delusional phenomenon.
Symptoms vary widely among individuals, and in many cases are debilitating, while suicides have been reported. They include: skin irritation, rashes, tingling sensations, sleep disorder, chronic fatigue, nausea, dizziness, headaches, burning sensation in the head, chest pains, irregular heart rhythm, tinnitus, and others. These symptoms are unspecific, meaning they can be caused by various stimuli, thus making EHS all the more elusive.
