Electronic Pollution-The Next Greatest Threat to Your Health?

“Electromagnetic pollution may be the most significant form of pollution human activity has produced in this century, all the more dangerous because it is invisible and insensible”  Andew Weil MD-Author of “Spontaneous Healing” and “8 Weeks to Optimum Health”

Here’s some bullet points on ELF’s (Extremely Low Frequency)

  • Wifi, mobile phones and cell towers produce various forms of radiation.
  • At the Bio Electromagnetic Society Senior Fellow of Environmental Health Trust Lloyd Mongear, commented on the potential health risks due to cell phones and the associated elevation risk of brain tumors.
  • Sept 2007 : German government issued warnings to citizens to avoid WiFi at work/home, suggesting cable connections instead.
  • 2007 French National Library removed all WiFi from systems in Paris due to staff health complaints.
  • The Australian Medical Association is lobbying against the development of WiFi in schools
  • Sept 2008 Dr. Ronald B Herberman, who headed up the  prominent University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute issues an unprecedented warning to staff to limit cell phone use because of possible risk to cancer.
  • Some recent studies in Nordic Countries, where phones have been used the longest, find that persons who have used cell phones for at least a decade have 30% to more than 200% more brain tumors than do those without such use, and only at the side of the head where the user holds their phone!  To put these numbers in context, this is at least as high an incident of increase for the added risk of breast cancer that women face with long term use of hormone replacement therapy!
  • Type 3 diabetics may be better able to regulate blood sugar with less medication. Those diagnosed as borderline/pre-diabetic may remain non diabetic longer by reducing their exposure to EMF frequency.
  • Brain cancer incidents have been increasing in the 20-29 year old bracket in the last 10 years.
  • In13,000 children born in 1997-1998, it was found that those exposed to cell phones in the womb or as children had more behavioral problems than those not exposed.
  • Recently France & Germany dismantled wireless networks in school and public libraries.
  • Israel has banned placement of cellular towers on residences.
  • The base of cordless phones can generate radio frequencies that range between 1/4 to 1/2 mile.

So now what?!

  1. Use your speaker phone or an ear piece when using a cell phone.
  2. Text when possible
  3. Limit cell phone usage
  4. Never leave a wireless phone bass or cellular phone near where you sleep
  5. If in doubt consult Bau Biologist at www.buildingbiology.net
  6. Various shielding paints, films on windows/sliding glass doors and other devices can be used to block EMF.
  7. Remove WIFI meter reader whenever possible
