One of the most definitive, expansive
and inclusive peer-reviewed papers I've ever read on any subject was
published July 25, 2016 (A
Review on Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) and the Reproductive System)
online at Electronic Physician as an, "open access article"
that I sincerely hope everyone in the media and healthcare
industries will take extremely seriously.
Especially those who are promoting more
and more 'smart' appliances and devices that transmit
electromagnetic frequencies and
which damage human health more than we are being told by government
health agencies at all levels (local, state and national),
manufacturers, employers and school districts that even mandate
their uses as "new technologies" to learn and to implement.
New technologies are fine
IF and WHEN they take into
consideration and implement safeguards for human health,
which is not the case with microwave
technology, but has been the "dream warfare" technology for the
United States military and other governments.
So anything goes, including our being
bombarded with so much microwaves, we now are experiencing more
adverse health effects attributed to what's scientifically termed
"Non-thermal Adverse Health Effects."
The U.S. military has had a GREAT
interest in keeping microwave safety standards higher than they
should be and not as applicable as the science demands.

following incriminating unclassified U.S. Army documents information
as to why microwaves are not safe, nor made safer,
due to U.S.
military involvement with its electronic warfare techniques, which

Unclassified, which clearly indicate the U.S. military's perspective
opposing more stringent guidelines for microwave radiation.
"If the more advanced nations of the West are
strict in the enforcement of stringent exposure standards,
there could be unfavorable effects on industrial output and
The Eurasian Communist countries could, on
the other hand, give lip service to strict standards, but
allow their military to operate without restriction and
thereby gain the advantage in electronic warfare techniques
and the development of antipersonnel applications."
"Should subsequent research result in
adoption of the Soviet standard by other countries,
industries whose practices are based on less stringent
safety regulations, could be required to make costly
modifications in order to protect workers.
Recognition of the 0.01 mW/cm2
standard could also limit the application of new technology
by making the commercial exploitation of some products
unattractive because of increased cost, imposed by the need
for additional safeguards."
Below is the copy and paste job of the
A Review on Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) and
the Reproductive System, which I hope my readers will
take seriously and also take necessary steps to protect yourselves,
your children, your pets and your home environment.
SERIOUS stuff no one is taking as seriously as we ALL should.
Those 'smart' gadgets' just may be
making you more sick than you can imagine.
With 61 References, I think the
Electronic Physician article needs to be taken seriously with
revisions made to EMF/RF standards by the U.S. Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) to reflect them.
"People in the modern world
frequently are exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMFs).
Human exposure to EMFs comes from
many sources, and situations are different in people's everyday
EMFs emanate from power lines, computer devices, televisions,
radios, and telephones. There are many factors that influence
the degree to which people may be affected by EMFs.
that can alter the conductivity of
and biological reactivity to EMFs.
Therefore, the effects of this environmental pollution can
depend on gender, tissue density of the body, the period of
life, and the exposure levels to EMFs.
Beginning in 1960 when the biological hazards caused by EMFs
first were studied, human health became an important focus in
the workplace and at home.
Although, the biological effects of
EMFs are still controversial, in general, the negative effects
should not be ignored. Currently, people are exposed to various
types of EMFs, which are non-ionic radiation that cannot release
They are energy in the form of oscillating electric and magnetic
fields that are transformed from one point to another.
Many forms of physical energy, such as X-rays, UV light, and
sunlight produce EMFs.
There are several references that classify EMFs, but, in
general, they can be considered to consist of four different
The first type of EMFs refers to extremely low frequency
(ELF) EMFs, which are EMFs that are below 300 HZ, and they are
produced by military equipment and railroads.
The second type, known as intermediate frequency (IF) EMFs, have
frequencies in the range of 300 Hz to 10 MHZ, and they are
produced by industrial cables and electrical equipment in homes,
such as televisions and computer monitors.
The third type is hyper frequency (HF) EMFs that have
frequencies in the range of 10 MHz to 3000 GHz and are produced
by mobile phones and radio broadcasting. Radio frequencies
(RFs) also are a part of this category, which has frequencies up
to 100 MHz.
There are also static EMFs that are produced by MRI and
geomagnetism and have specified with zero frequency. In 1979,
Wertheimer and Looper showed that there is a direct relationship
between EMFs and the increased incidence of leukemia in infants.
If the body's biological system is exposed to EMFs, which
produce electric currents and fields, which, in fact, deal with
the current and voltage, the normal physiological balance is
upset. If the density of the electric current increases to the
stimulation threshold, membrane depolarization of the nerves and
muscles may result.
Electric and magnetic fields at environmental levels may extend
the lifetime of free radicals and result in damage to people's
deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA).
Some epidemiological studies have been done in various
populations, but most have been done in laboratory animals and
cell lines (4). The biological effects of EMFs generally can be
divided into thermal and non-thermal effects.
Thermal effects are defined as the heat generated by EMFs in a
specific area. The non-thermal effects depend on the absorption
of energy and changes in the behavior of tissues without
producing heat. EMFs have high penetration power, and they are
capable of moving charged particles, such as the electrons and
ions of large macromolecules and polymers.
So EMFs can have devastating effects on tissue with high
concentrations of electrons and ions. EMFs that cause changes in
the behavior of cells and tissues alter the function of the
cardiovascular system and bone marrow.
Electromagnetic fields can have several different effects on
cellular components, including disorders of cell proliferation
and differentiation (10), damaged DNA in cells, chromosomal
abnormalities, blood disorders, birth defects, and various
mutations, including those associated with long-term exposure to
Under the influence of these fields, the balance of the CNS and
the hormonal and respiratory systems become weak, resulting in
decreased activity of the mentioned organs.
Research on the effects of EMFs on the endocrine system has
focused mostly on melatonin and the derived tryptophan produced
by the pineal gland. Most of the harmful effects of EMFs act
through the protein synthesis process.
In this regard, enzymes, due to their combination of amino
acids, are affected, and their catalytic activity is decreased.
Studies concerning the
cytotoxicicity and genotoxicity effects of EMFs mostly have
focused on fibroblasts, melanocytes, lymphocytes, monocytes, and
muscular cells in people and on the granolosa cells of rats.
A declassified 1976 Defense Intelligence Agency report showed
that military personnel exposed to non-thermal microwave
"headaches, fatigue, dizziness,
irritability, sleeplessness, depression, anxiety,
forgetfulness, and a lack of concentration."
A 2015 study showed that 2.4 GHz
WiFi may be one of the major risk factors for brain tumors and
other neurodegenerative diseases. Another 2015 paper showed that
polarized EMF (man-made) was much more active biologically than
Another paper showed that rabbits experienced heart arrhythmia
and increased blood pressure when exposed to 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi. A
long-term study conducted by Lennart Hardell, a Swedish
scientist, on glioma and acoustic neuroma brain tumors showed
that RF is carcinogenic.
The scientist called for RF to be labeled an IARC Class 1
Carcinogen and recommended urgent revision to safety guidelines.
A 2011 study by Nora Volkow showed that radiation from cell
phones, in areas next to the antenna, increased the metabolism
of glucose in the brain. Increased metabolism of glucose is
associated with cancer.
The study showed that biological changes occur at levels lower
than the current FCC guidelines."
