The U.S. National Research Council
has advised that researchers should study children and pregnant
women in order to determine if cell phones or other wireless devices
could be causing health damage.
The U.S. FDA had asked the National Research Council,
which advises the federal government on scientific matters, to
recommend some future lines of study. Most studies of cell phones to
date have looked only at short-term effects on healthy adults.
The Council noted that,
"Although it is unknown whether
children are more susceptible to RF (Radio Frequency)
exposure, they may be at increased risk because of their
developing organ and tissue systems."
The Council also identified a number of
other overarching issues that merit further study, such as
differences between long- and short-term exposure, and possible
biological mechanisms, other than simple heating, by which wireless
radiation could affect cells.
Children today will experience previously unimaginable exposure to
information-carrying radio waves from mobile phones because they
start out using them at a very early age.
I am absolutely convinced that the explosion of cell phone usage
around the world is a health disaster in waiting, and contributing
to the rapid rise in several neurological epidemics, such as autism
and early-onset of Alzheimer’s.
One reason for this is that the information-carrying radio waves
from cell phone base stations and cell phones make children’s
vaccines and heavy metals much more
dangerous than they typically are. EMR (electromagnetic radiation)
can actually trap heavy metals inside your cells, causing cellular
damage and hindering your body from detoxifying. For this reason -
while I realize that most people will not get rid of their cell
phones because of their convenience - I would still urge you to not
let your kids use them.
I am so convinced this danger is real, on par with the dangers of
tobacco, which all the “experts” claimed was safe, that I’m writing
an entire book on the subject, due out in 2009.
And, I’m not alone in trying to educate the public. In fact, some
European countries are already working on public health campaigns
designed to warn school-age children of the dangers, by putting up
posters in schools and community halls.
Will Europe Ban Cell Phones for
The Vienna Medical Association is demanding the removal of
zero tariffs and the banning of mobile phone advertising targeting
children and adolescents. Says Erik Huber, environment
advisor for the association:
“Children under the age of 16 should
never use a mobile phone.”
Many scientists and government agencies
in Europe have already accepted that EMF (electromagnetic
frequencies) from cell phones does pose health risks, reflected
in Huber’s statement,
“Scientists do not argue anymore
whether mobile phones are harmful, but how harmful they are.”
Don’t be Deceived – SAR is Not an
Indication of Safety
Although the National Research Council’s report states that
Specific Absorption Rates (SAR) for children are
likely to be higher than for adults, let’s not get confused.
Because the danger from most land-based portable phones, cell phones
and WiFi routers is NOT from the magnetic radiation or the microwave
carrier wave for which typical SAR ratings are given on phones.
Unless you have massive exposures like you might expect in a
microwave oven, these thermal effects are insignificant.
So simply lowering the allowable SAR will NOT make cell phones
Instead, nearly all the biological damage comes from the
modulated signals that are carried ON the carrier microwave.
These modulated information carrying radio waves resonate in
biological frequencies of a few to a few hundred cycles per
second, and can stimulate your cellular receptors causing a whole
cascade of pathological consequences that can culminate in fatigue,
anxiety, neurological decline, and ultimately cancers.
The density of your child’s skull is also far less than yours, and
therefore their brain is far more susceptible to these
information-carrying radio waves.
This Deserves Your SERIOUS Attention
The studies showing the long-term risks of cell phone use are just
beginning to come in because cell phone use didn’t become widespread
until the late 1990s. It typically takes at least 10 to 20 years for
cancers to show up, so now is the time when these risks will become
It is almost as if NO ONE was smoking and then all of a sudden
nearly 90 percent of the planet started. Of course, we would not see
any spectacular increase in major damage for more than 10 years. It
takes time for this damage to accumulate and be noticed.
Unfortunately, most people fail to correlate common symptoms and
health problems to their exposure to cell phones and other radio
frequencies, perhaps because these conditions can so easily be
attributed to other causes (including so-called “unknown” causes) as
Take a look at these common illnesses and ailments, which have all
been scientifically linked to cell phone information carrying radio
Alzheimer’s, senility and
Altered memory function, poor
concentration and spatial awareness
Although cancer and brain tumors
are most often cited as the potential health risks from cell
phone radiation, as you can see, cancer is not the only, or
most common danger that you and your children face.
Protecting Yourself and Your Children
From Dangerous RF
The best way to protect yourself would be to simply not use a cell
phone and revert back to a corded phone. At the very least I would
urge you to not let your kids use them or severely limit their use.
Their developing nervous systems and thinner skulls are simply too
vulnerable to cell phone damage.
If you choose to keep your cell phone, make sure you use a non-Blue
Tooth headset. Also remember, even when you’re not using your
phone, keep it as far away from your body as possible. Do not keep
it on your belt or in your pocket as the radiation WILL penetrate
your body wherever the phone is attached.
According to a scientific study
published in Fertility and Sterility in May 2007,
statistically significant changes were found in men’s sperm count
and health of the sperm, based on cell phone use.
“Use of cell phones decreases the
semen quality in men by decreasing the sperm count, motility,
viability and normal morphology. The decrease in sperm
parameters was dependent on the duration of daily exposure to
cell phones, and independent of the initial semen quality.”
So, make sure you stow your cell phone
in a bag, briefcase, or your car’s glove compartment.
