Dr. Martin PallAccording to government and industry sources, microwaves from mobile phones and other wireless communication devices do no biological harm to human health. But according to professor emeritus Dr. Martin L. Pall, physicist, geneticist and cell biologist, the opposite is true, and the research results in this regard are simply not ambiguous, as the naysayers claim. Dr. Paul's position is that we face, and have for decades now been facing an environmental pollutant that poses a grave risk to human health, and indeed to all life on earth.

Presented in English to a Norwegian audience, Dr. Paul defends his position eloquently in the video here below.

A small but growing number of people claim to suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity. The condition causes people to feel sick in the presence of the electromagnetic waves that emanate from virtually all modern electronics. Anything from a cell phone tower to a wireless router to a refrigerator can trigger feelings of nausea, dizziness, heart palpitations and even rashes on the skin, according to the World Health Organization. Prominent figures such as Gro Harlem Brundtland, former chair of WHO and prime minister of Norway, say they are electrosensitive. CLICK HERE to watch the video.

Dr. Dominique BelpommeDr. Dominique Belpomme, president of the Association for Research on Treatment Against Cancer (ARTAC), and founder of the European Cancer and Environment Research Institute (ECERI) stated in a recent interview (in French) that “Electrosensitivy is a Pre-Alzeheimer’s state.” In support of this, Dr. Belpomme cites brain imagery showing vascular hypo-perfusion in the brain's limbic system, where Alzheimers starts; 2 to 10 times higher levels of histamine in the blood of test subjects; detection of other markers that indicate the opening of the blood/brain barrier; higher levels of auto-antibodies against O-myelin and/or stress proteins; and decrease in the production of melatonin.  To read a summary (in English) of  Dr. Belpomme's interview, CLICK HERE.

"The Obama Administration is promoting wireless internet access in schools. The intent is for each child during the school day to do school work on an iPad and/or laptop with WiFi.  What they are not telling the parents is that the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer has determined that pulsed radio frequency radiation, i.e., the radiation being emitted from wireless technology is possibly cancer causing.  The radiation was given a class 2B rating.  The same classification they have given to DDT, lead, exhaust fumes and chloroform.  No government, nor parents, should allow these toxins to be in the classrooms ..."

This Children's Health Expert Panel presented a wide range of global scientific evidence that electro-magnetic radiation of the kind emitted by portable phones, Wi-Fi routers, baby monitors, Bluetooth earpieces, towers, antennas, smart boards, smart meters, Google glass and other devices is adversely affecting people across the globe, and especially children. This radiation may be ‘non-thermal’, but has clear and indisputable biological and health effects. Click here to read their report summary.

Your Brain on a Cellphone (Sep. 23, 2013 - Berkeley, California): The first study on the short-term effects of Long Term Evolution (LTE), the fourth generation cell phone technology, has been published online in the peer-reviewed journal, Clinical Neurophysiology.

The resting state brain activity of each participant was measured by magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) at two times -- after exposure to LTE microwave radiation, and after a sham exposure. The results demonstrated that LTE exposure affected brain neural activity not only in the closer brain region but also in the remote region, including the left hemisphere of the brain. The study helps explain the underlying neural mechanism for the remote effects of microwave radiation in the brain. Read more by clicking here.

The British Government announced on 10 May 2013, that SmartMeter installations throughout the country will be delayed by more than a year serious health and medical concerns. This news has been completely ignored by US news media outlets. Normally, anything coming out of the UK gets trumpeted all over the US news media, especially NPR ... but not this time.

Also worth noting, Italy has banned wireless SmartMeters entirely, nationwide. This news has been completely ignored by US news media outlets. And India is dismantling all microwave towers that stand within 1,000 meters of a school or hospital, as well as banning the construction of new towers in those restricted zones.

By the time they’re 19 or 20 years old, our children will have used a cell phone for 10 years, and we have no idea what type of risk that’s carrying. Now we live an ocean of electromagnetic radiation.

It’s all around us now, invisible, but we know it’s there. Every time you lift up your mobile phone you know it’s there. It is very hard to turn the clock back, in fact it is impossible, but we need to be aware of the adverse health effects so that we can have the choice of taking precautions against the exposures.

How we could have possibly thought that putting microwaves to our brain was safe? We just don’t fully understand what we’re doing. The full length 90-minute documentary, Resonance - Beings of Frequency, can be watched by clicking the video frame here below.

Smart Grid - Get SmartWASHINGTON, D.C. — November 26, 2012.

David O. Carpenter MDDavid O. Carpenter M.D., from a report Dr. Carpenter delivered to the Quebec Energy Board:

"It is my opinion that the state of scientific research sufficiently establishes a risk that meters transmitting by radio frequencies as proposed in the present file by Hydro-Quebec may constitute a risk of serious as well as irreversible damage to health, through biological effects other than those resulting from heat. Some individuals or categories of individuals are more susceptible to injury than others (children, pregnant women, elderly, persons will illness, electrosensitive individuals, etc)." David O.
