Study Proves Electromagnetic Fields From Cell Towers Can Amplify Pain

[Evidenziamo quanto segue:

“Now that we have evidence that cell tower signals can amplify pain, is it that unreasonable to consider that cell tower radiation may be causing other health problems that we simply have yet to identify?”]

If you’ve ever wondered if the thousands of cell phone towers and electromagnetic signals permeating society nowadays could be potentially harmful to your body, mind and to the natural environment, you’re not alone. A small minority of people are so sensitive to electromagnetic radiation they’ve even been forced to move into cave-like domiciles designed to insulate them from such signals. We are, after all, energetic beings, as are all lifeforms, and although something may lie outside of our ordinary perception does not imply that it is harmless.

It turns out that electromagnetic signals from cell phone towers do in fact directly affect the human body in physical ways, and surprisingly, for amputees, common cellular signals can amplify sensations of pain in the body, when in the presence of such emissions.

A recently completed study led by members The University of Texas at Dallas gives concrete evidence that these types of now ubiquitous signals can actually amplify pain in some amputees by immediately stimulating nerve tissue that had suffered traumatic damage.

Prior to this study, the bulk of research into cell tower radiation focused on people without any pre-existing conditions or serious health issues, however, when a disabled veteran who lost limbs in the Iraq war alerted his physicians to the fact that his sense of pain seemed to increase dramatically whenever his cell phone went into roaming mode, a study was launched to test this hypothesis on lab rats.

“Our study provides evidence, for the first time, that subjects exposed to cellphone towers at low, regular levels can actually perceive pain,” said Dr. Mario Romero-Ortega, senior author of the study and an associate professor of bioengineering in the University’s Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science. “Our study also points to a specific nerve pathway that may contribute to our main finding.” [1]

This is the first study of its kind that has found a direct link to immediate physical changes in the human body when absorbing cell tower radiation.

Until a recent study led by researchers at The University of Texas at Dallas was published online last month in PLOS ONE, there was no scientific evidence to back up the anecdotal stories of people, such as Underwood, who reported aberrant sensations and neuropathic pain around cellphone towers and other technology that produce radio-frequency electromagnetic fields. [1]

To validate the wounded soldier’s claim that pain was amplified by cell tower signals researchers crafted a simulation using lab rats who were subjected to the types and levels of electromagnetic radiation that many of us are exposed to every day.

To test this, the team randomly assigned 20 rats into two groups — one receiving a nerve injury that simulated amputation, and the other group receiving a sham treatment. Researchers then exposed the subjects to a radiofrequency electromagnetic antenna for 10 minutes, once per week for eight weeks. The antenna delivered a power density equal to that measured at 39 meters from a local cellphone tower — a power density that a person might encounter outside of occupational settings.

Researchers found that by the fourth week, 88 percent of subjects in the nerve-injured group demonstrated a behavioral pain response, while only one subject in the sham group exhibited pain at a single time point, and that was during the first week. [1]

These towers are being installed across the world right now, right amongst densely populated areas and even on public school grounds. Cell phones have already been proven to cause brain cancer, yet the both the cell industry and the general public refuse to consider this sufficient reason to re-think the use and widespread proliferation of this technology.

How to Disappear Off the Grid Completely (Ad)

Now that we have evidence that cell tower signals can amplify pain, is it that unreasonable to consider that cell tower radiation may be causing other health problems that we simply have yet to identify?

Study Uncovers How Electromagnetic Fields Amplify Pain in Amputees

3 February 2016 – “”, The University of Texas at Dallas News Center

Dr. Mario Romero-Ortega

For years, retired Maj. David Underwood has noticed that whenever he drove under power lines and around other electromagnetic fields, he would feel a buzz in what remained of his arm. When traveling by car through Texas’ open spaces, the buzz often became more powerful.

“When roaming on a cellphone in the car kicked in, the pain almost felt like having my arm blown off again,” said Underwood, an Iraq War veteran who was injured by an improvised explosive device (IED). His injuries have resulted in 35 surgeries and the amputation of his left arm. Shrapnel from the IED also tore part of his leg and left him with more than 100 smaller wounds. “I didn’t notice the power lines, cellphones on roam or other electromagnetic fields until I first felt them in my arm.”

Until a recent study led by researchers at The University of Texas at Dallas was published online last month in PLOS ONE, there was no scientific evidence to back up the anecdotal stories of people, such as Underwood, who reported aberrant sensations and neuropathic pain around cellphone towers and other technology that produce radio-frequency electromagnetic fields.

“Our study provides evidence, for the first time, that subjects exposed to cellphone towers at low, regular levels can actually perceive pain,” said Dr. Mario Romero-Ortega, senior author of the study and an associate professor of bioengineering in the University’s Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science. “Our study also points to a specific nerve pathway that may contribute to our main finding.”

Most of the research into the possible effects of cellphone towers on humans has been conducted on individuals with no diagnosed, pre-existing conditions. This is one of the first studies to look at the effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in a nerve-injury model, said Romero-Ortega, who researches nerve regeneration and builds neural interfaces — technology that connects bionic or robotic devices to the peripheral nerve. There are nearly 2 million amputees in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and many suffer from chronic pain.

After interacting with Underwood, Romero-Ortega decided to study the phenomena that Underwood described.

Retired Maj. David Underwood

The team hypothesized that the formation of neuromas — inflamed peripheral nerve bundles that often form due to injury — created an environment that may be sensitive to EMF-tissue interactions. To test this, the team randomly assigned 20 rats into two groups — one receiving a nerve injury that simulated amputation, and the other group receiving a sham treatment. Researchers then exposed the subjects to a radiofrequency electromagnetic antenna for 10 minutes, once per week for eight weeks. The antenna delivered a power density equal to that measured at 39 meters from a local cellphone tower — a power density that a person might encounter outside of occupational settings.

Researchers found that by the fourth week, 88 percent of subjects in the nerve-injured group demonstrated a behavioral pain response, while only one subject in the sham group exhibited pain at a single time point, and that was during the first week. After growth of neuroma and resection — the typical treatment in humans with neuromas who are experiencing pain — the pain responses persisted.

“Many believe that a neuroma has to be present in order to evoke pain. Our model found that electromagnetic fields evoked pain that is perceived before neuroma formation; subjects felt pain almost immediately,” Romero-Ortega said. “My hope is that this study will highlight the importance of developing clinical options to prevent neuromas, instead of the current partially effective surgery alternatives for neuroma resection to treat pain.”

Researchers also performed experiments at the cellular level to explain the behavioral response. That led researchers to explore the protein TRPV4, which is known to be a factor in heat sensitivity and the development of allodynia, which some subjects displayed.

“It is highly likely that TRPV4 is a mediator in the pain response for these subjects,” Romero-Ortega said. “Our calcium imaging experiments were a good indicator that TRPV4 is worth further exploration.”

Our study provides evidence, for the first time, that subjects exposed to cellphone towers at low, regular levels can actually perceive pain. Our study also points to a specific nerve pathway that may contribute to our main finding.

Dr. Mario Romero-Ortega,
associate professor
of bioengineering

Romero-Ortega said since the research produced pain responses similar to those in anecdotal reports and a specific human case, the results “are very likely” generalizable to humans.

“There are commercially available products to block radio frequency electromagnetic energy. There are people who live in caves because they report to be hypersensitive to radiomagnetism, yet the rest of the world uses cellphones and does not have a problem. The polarization may allow people to disregard the complaints of the few as psychosomatic,” he said. “In our study, the subjects with nerve injury were not capable of complex psychosomatic behavior. Their pain was a direct response to man-made radiofrequency electromagnetic energy.”

At one point in the study, members of the research group showed Underwood video of subjects in the experiment and their response to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields.

“It was exactly the same type of movements I would have around cellphones on roam, power lines and other electromagnetic fields,” said Underwood, who has served on congressional medical committees and been exposed to some of the best doctors in the world. “It is pretty amazing that a few short conversations with this team led to validation of what I, and many others, experience.”

Researchers said that the next step is to develop devices that block neuropathic pain from radiofrequency electromagnetic energy.

Dr. Bryan Black, a research associate in the Department of Bioengineering in the Jonsson School; Dr. Rafael Granja-Vazquez, a postdoctoral fellow at UT Dallas; Dr. Benjamin Johnston of Brown University; and Dr. Erick Jones Sr., a professor of industrial, manufacturing and systems engineering at UT Arlington, also contributed to the work.


Medical and Legal Perspectives on EHS

8 February 2016 – “Mobilfunk Newsletter – EMF Omega News”

See attached documents and comments below by EHS pioneer Olle Johansson PhD

Informant: André Fauteux

Excerpt from the CHRC report  Accommodation for Environmental Sensitivities: Legal Perspective
International approaches to definitions of disability in human rights protection vary in their reliance on medical diagnoses and symptoms. At one end of this spectrum are the Canadian and Australian approaches, in which a very broad definition of disability is adopted.3 As a result of this, complainants are required to provide minimal medical evidence to establish that they qualify as persons with a disability, and individuals with environmental sensitivities do not need to prove the veracity of their condition. In fact, the courts have specifically held that the inability of the medical community to diagnose a condition or identify its cause does not affect whether an individual has a disability, so long as its triggers can be identified.4 Instead, the analysis is meant to focus on the individual’s accommodation needs and the behaviour of the employer or service provider.5
In contrast, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) applies a very restrictive medical test for an individual to qualify as a person with a disability and be eligible for protection under the ADA.6 Individuals with environmental sensitivities often find it difficult to establish that they have a disability under this definition. In one case, for example, the United States District Court held that a woman did not qualify as a person with a disability because her sensitivities to chemicals only affected a major life function (breathing) while at the office and exposed to chemicals.7

From: Olle Johansson

A functional impairment does not need any diagnosis, nor any recognition (apart from the personal one), no tribunals or similar. Please, read my latest paper for an update on this: Johansson O, “Electrohypersensitivity: a functional impairment due to an inaccessible environment”, Rev Environ Health 2015c; 30: 311–321  [enclosed as a pdf]

Also see what medical doctors* may do if they are given the opportunity: Johansson O, “Electrohypersensitivity – In January 2015, how far from January 1945 were we?”, 24/2, 2015a

It has been investigated many times, and it turns out that it is a very uncommon situation; it is not so fun to ‘play the role’ of a handicapped person, as you may imagine, and the monetary gain is not that big. In rich countries, this uncommon behaviour is not an economical problem, so it is far better to allow this rare incidence to take place instead of running the risk of chasing entitled persons out of their human rights. We can afford it. (I once positioned myself at a Stockholm roundabout and during 10 minutes (and this was not during the rush hours) more than 60 million Swedish kronor, approx. 10 million Canadian dollars, passed. So, yes, we can afford it.)

Furthermore, it has also been shown that early support cuts the later costs for the society, for the employers, for the health care, etc., down to a tenth (or even lower), so here you may gain billions whereas above you may loose (perhaps) a few millions.

Finally, the greatest economic gain lies in the fact that when you make a society completely accessible then everyone benefits from it. A phased-off sidewalk in Stockholm, meant for persons with movement disorders, are used to at least 99.9% by normal healthy people taking advantage of it while being on a roller board, a bicycle, pulling a shopping cart, pushing a baby pram, using a Segway, a walking frame, a skateboard, etc. The economic advantages of this are, of course, astronomical.

As a citizen – even as a top journalist like yourself – it is of paramount importance to only see the possibilities, not the problems, when it comes to functional impairments and accessibility measures. Many times, only thanks to functionally impaired persons, society has developed immensely.

There is still a very strong tendency to be afraid of persons with Down’s syndrome, odd movement impairments, MCS persons, EHS persons, and Swedes without knowledge of the French language. Especially medical doctors react in a rather primitive way, looking at these persons as potential patients, to be given diagnostic criteria, hospital clothes, and flimsy ‘treatments’. I cry when I think about how, for instance, the persons with Down’s syndrome were treated in the 1940ies and 50ies here in Sweden, being looked away for life in their homes or most often at medical institutions, being victims of homemade ‘treatments’ and unfounded theories; nowadays they are the most loved and respected citizens, having their own movies, theater plays, winning awards, writing poems, books, etc. And the irony is that if you really want to have a loving creature, filled with the uttermost kindness, they even outbeat a puppy! (…But they were not treated as puppies, but as filthy dogs…) And nowadays physicians want to go down such an avenue again, to ‘treat’ EHS persons…and then, in the future, maybe Swedes without knowledge of the French language … or Canadian journalists, if you see what I am driving at.  :-(((((

In summary, in Sweden EHS persons are not seen as patients, they do not have an overriding medical diagnosis, but the ‘patient’ is only the environment – inferior and potentially toxic. This does not mean that a subjective symptom of a functionally impaired can not be treated by a physician, as well as get sick-leave from their workplace as well as economic compensation, and already in the year 2000 such symptoms were identified in the Internal Code of Diagnoses, version 10 (ICD-10; R68.8/now W90), and have been since. But the underlying cause still remains only the environment. (As a matter of fact, the EHS persons in Sweden are even “allowed” to break a leg, have diabetes and get psoriasis treatments. Thus, ‘functional impairment’ and ‘medical condition’ are not mutually exclusive. They are different things. In the everyday world, having EHS is definitely a huge disability and it impairs the ability of a person to have an optimal quality of life. If it was not an impairment, only those interested in esoterica would care about it. So, the pragmatic aspect that makes it important is the simple fact that it is an impairment that disables people’s lives. (And interventions for people who have the condition include medical treatments of their symptoms, but not of their environmental causes – there we need technicians, physicists, electricians, and others to make the latter accessible.) About this, the current whole society needs to be educated. Furthermore, prevention is yet another aspect that definitely should be in the discussion; when will we see my dream of tomorrow’s green, human-friendly technology come into play?)

Doctors caution on hazards of Wi-Fi use

February 08 2016 – “The Hans India”, by Md Nizamuddin

Concern over keeping Wi-Fi routers active in houses

 Hyderabad: Even as the TRS and BJP-TDP combine have promised in their manifestoes to make Hyderabad into a Wi-Fi city, the city-based doctors caution that it would contribute to increasing number of cancer cases since the devices installed throughout the city would only augment the radiation emission and causes exposure to continuous EMF (electromagnetic field).

TRS and BJP-TDP combine, in their GHMC manifestoes have promised to turn the city into round the clock Wi-Fi network. The TRS government has already rolled out Wi-Fi service at 30 hotspots. This includes Hussainsagar Lake, Cyber Towers, Charminar, Gandhi Hospital, NIMS, Birla Mandir area and Public Gardens.

It plans to extend Wi-Fi to Salar Jung Museum, Golconda Fort, Falaknuma Palace, MG Bus Station, Jubilee Bus Station and other historic locations.  Cities like Bengaluru, Delhi, Mysuru, Varanasi and Kolkata also offer public Wi-Fi at a few spots, but none of the cities have Wi-Fi network available across the city.

The doctors have expressed concern over the fact that growing number of households has been keeping Wi-Fi routers active in their houses which emits radiation. The children’s brains are delicate and the radiation affects them directly, they point out. They suggested to turn off the Wi-Fi when not in use. “Don’t keep it on throughout, as it is causing problem,” says Dr Praveen Kumar Saxena of Centre for Progressive Medicine.

It is being argued that no city across the country or at global level is having Wi-Fi given the ill effects like radiation. While referring to the research conducted by Devra lee Davis and other scientists based in US, it is being argued that radiation emitted by cell phones and Wi-Fi impacts children’s development, their cognitive function, attention, memory, perception, learning capacity, emotions and social skills. Cancer is believed to be a result from changes in DNA.

DNA’s coil structure makes it exquisitely sensitive to electromagnetic field more than other tissue in the body. “If I get an opportunity, I shall explain IT Minister KT Rama Rao. He will surely remove Wi-Fi from his house,” says Saxena confidently who is also Clinical Metal Toxicologist.

In May 2015, 195 scientists from 39 countries represented to the United Nations Organisation, World Health Organisation (WHO) and national governments to develop stricter controls on cell phones and other products that create electromagnetic fields. While the government has been arguing that it is not scientifically established.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has given the permission to companies to set up cell phone towers. “If TRAI thinks there is some science and truth in it, they will stop automatically. If it causes cancer, it will not happen in Hyderabad only. It will be in the entire world. If it is proven harmful, the whole world will stop,” says Jayesh Ranjan, Telangana State IT Secretary.

He explained that there was a misunderstanding that entire city would be covered under Wi-Fi network. But the government would be coming up with only 3,000 hot stops, where people gather, like bus stops, market places, shopping malls, places of tourists’ interest and colleges, he said.

à l’occasion du colloque du 11 Février 2016 à l’Assemblée nationale

« Pour mieux comprendre et reconnaitre l’électro-hypersensibilité »

Nous, médecins, scientifiques et professionnels de santé,

Considérant l’appel de Fribourg lancé en 2002 par des médecins, nous constatons ces dernières années au cours de nos consultations, une augmentation dramatique de maladies graves et chroniques chez nos patients, telles que:

Les symptômes généralement constatés à l’utilisation du téléphone portable :

–          douleur et/ou une chaleur dans l’oreille

–          troubles de la sensibilité superficielle à type de dysesthésies(fourmillements, picotements, brûlures, voire prurit) au niveau du visage, du cuir chevelu ou du bras

Puis peu à peu, et de façon permanente :

maux de tête, associés de façon caractéristique à une raideur et douleur de la nuque.

–          acouphènes, hyperacousie,

–           troubles visuels à type de vision floue,

–          anomalies de la sensibilité profonde (faux vertiges), malaises

–          lésions cutanées avec sensation de brulures (causalgies) et/ou un prurit,

–          troubles musculaires (myalgies, spasmes, fasciculations) et/ou articulaires (arthralgies, raideurs)

–          troubles cognitifs.

En deuxième phase :

–          apparition de troubles cognitifs sévères  (déficit de l’attention et de la concentration, perte de la mémoire immédiate)

–          symptômes végétatifs sympathicomimétiques (oppression thoracique, tachycardie)

–          troubles digestifs ou urinaires,

–           insomnie, fatigue chronique et éventuellement tendance dépressive.

Et enfin, en l’absence de traitement et de mesure de protection, l’évolution est marquée par la constitution progressive de lésions anatomopathologiques, totalement irréversibles : syndrome confusionnel,absences, désorientation temporo spatiale ou état de démence s’apparentant à une maladie d’Alzheimer y compris chez les sujets jeunes.

Chez l’enfant : maux de tête et troubles du sommeil, dyslexie, troubles de l’attention et de la concentration, perte de  mémoire de fixation, parfois troubles du comportement (enfant refusant d’aller à l’école sans raison),
Considérant que nous connaissons l’environnement résidentiel et les habitudes de nos patients, nous constatons souvent une corrélation dans le temps et dans l’espace, entre l’apparition de ces troubles et le début de l’extension de l’irradiation par des ondes électromagnétiques, dans des cas comme:

– l’installation d’une antenne relais de téléphonie mobile dans les environs du domicile ou du lieu de travail du patient,
– l’utilisation intensive d’un téléphone portable,
– l’utilisation d’un téléphone sans fil de type DECT à domicile ou au travail.

Les champs  électromagnétiques semblent donc  pour partie expliquer l’apparition de ces troubles.

Comme l’indique la Déclaration scientifique Internationale sur l’Electrohypersensibilité et la sensibilité aux produits chimiques multiples signée par des scientifiques et médecins du monde entier réunis à l’Académie Royale de Médecine à Bruxelles en mai  2015, à l’initiative de l’ECERI  des marqueurs biologiques ont été identifiés chez les malades électrohypersensibles qui permettent d’établir l’existence de véritables pathologies invalidantes. A tel point que certaines personnes doivent s’isoler des endroits pollués par les champs électromagnétiques (wifi, téléphonie mobile…) afin de continuer à vivre dans les conditions les plus normales possibles. Pour autant, cette pathologie n’est toujours pas reconnue par les autorités sanitaires françaises.

Dans le contexte de la reconnaissance, par le Tribunal du contentieux de l’incapacité de Toulouse, du handicap à 80% subi par un malade atteint d’électro-hypersensibilité, nous pensons qu’il est temps d’évoquer enfin de ce sujet majeur de santé publique.

Cette pathologie étant complexe et multifactorielle, nous sommes démunis face à ces personnes, dont la souffrance physique est réelle et les symptômes avérés. Même si une controverse scientifique demeure à certains égards sur le sujet, ces patients existent et des réponses doivent leur être apportées médicalement pour atténuer leur souffrance.

Nous avons besoin d’être mieux informés sur les impacts sanitaires des champs électromagnétiques et d’être dotés d’outils pour mieux aider ces patients.

Nous appelons ainsi solennellement l’État français et plus particulièrement la Ministre de la santé à faire de l’impact sanitaire des champs électromagnétiques une priorité sanitaire et de considérer ces patients, de plus en plus nombreux, qui sont pour la plupart en grande difficulté et précarité sociale.

Il nous semble indispensable, par précaution, d’abaisser l’exposition générale de la population aux champs électromagnétiques ; notamment pour ce qui est des enfants, de réduire leur exposition à la wifi et aux tablettes dans les établissements scolaires.

Une recherche indépendante et approfondie doit être menée sur le sujet et les personnes électro hypersensibles doivent pouvoir se réfugier dans des « zones blanches »

Enfin, les décisions de certaines Maisons Départementales des Personnes Handicapés de reconnaître l’électro-hypersensibilité comme handicap doivent être définitivement validées et appliquées par toutes les MDPH  pour que les personnes EHS soient toutes prises en charge.

CALL for doctors and health professionals – «to better understand and recognize electrohypersensitivity» 11 Feb 2016 (auto translation, via Michèle Rivasi)


At the occasion of the symposium at the National Assembly on 11th February 2016, “To better understand and recognize electro-hypersensitivity”
We, doctors, scientists and health professionals,
Considering the appeal of Fribourg launched in 2002 by physicians, we find in recent years during our consultations, a dramatic rise in severe and chronic diseases among our patients, such as:

Symptoms usually found in mobile phone use:

– Pain and / or heat in the ear

– Disorders of the surface sensitivity type dysesthesia (tingling, tingling, burning or itching) on the face, scalp or arm

Then gradually, and permanently:

– Headache, associated typically with stiffness and pain in the neck.

– Tinnitus, hyperacusis,

– Visual disturbances type of blurred vision,

– Anomalies of deep sensitivity (false vertigo), malaise

– Skin lesions with sensation of burns (causalgia) and / or itching,

– Muscle disorders (myalgia, spasms, twitching) and / or joints (arthralgia, stiffness)

– Cognitive disorders.

Second stage:

– Onset of severe cognitive disorders (attention deficit and concentration, loss of short term memory)

– Vegetative symptoms sympathomimetic (chest tightness, tachycardia)

– Digestive or urinary disorders,

– Insomnia, chronic fatigue and possibly depressive tendency.

And finally, in the absence of treatment and protection measure, evolution is marked by progressive constitution of pathological lesions, totally irreversible: delirium, absences, spatial disorientation or temporal state of dementia resembling a disease Alzheimer including young subjects.

In children headache and sleep disorders, dyslexia, attention disorders and concentration, loss of memory attachment, sometimes behavioral problems (child refusing to go to school without reason)

Considering that we know the residential environment and habits of our patients, we often see a correlation in time and space, between the occurrence of these disorders and the beginning of the extension of the radiation waves electromagnetic, in cases such as:

– The installation of a mobile phone mast in the vicinity of the home or the patient’s workplace

– the intensive use of a mobile phone

– using a DECT-type wireless phone home or at work.

Electromagnetic fields thus appear to partly explain the appearance of these disorders.

As indicated in the Declaration on International Scientific electrohypersensitivity and sensitivity to multiple chemicals signed by scientists and doctors around the world gathered at the Royal Academy of Medicine in Brussels in May 2015, on the initiative of the ECERI biomarkers have been identified in the EHS sufferers that establish the existence of true debilitating conditions.

So much so that some people must isolate polluted places by electromagnetic fields (WiFi, mobile phone …) to continue to live under the most normal conditions possible.

However, this disease is still not recognized by the French health authorities.

In the context of the recognition by the Dispute Tribunal of the inability of Toulouse, 80% of disability suffered by a patient with electro-hypersensitivity, we believe it is finally time to discuss this major issue public health.

This pathology is complex and multifactorial, we are clueless about these people, whose physical suffering is real and symptoms found. Although scientific controversy remains in some respects on the subject, these patients exist and their responses must be made medically to alleviate their suffering.

We need to be better informed on health impacts of electromagnetic fields and to be equipped with tools to better help these patients.

We call solemnly as the French government and particularly the Minister of Health to the health impact of electromagnetic fields a health priority and take these patients, more and more, which are mostly in big trouble and social insecurity.

It seems essential, as a precaution, lower the general population exposure to electromagnetic fields; especially in terms of children, reduce their exposure to wifi and tablets in schools.

An independent and thorough research should be conducted on the subject and electro hypersensitive persons should be able to take refuge in “white areas”

Finally, decisions of some houses Departmental Disabled Persons recognize electro-hypersensitivity as a disability must be definitively validated and applied by all MDPH for people to EHS are all supported

Wi-Fi free negli Ospedali? Ecco i rischi dell’irradiazione cronica

11 febbraio 2016 – “”

Recentemente è apparsa la notizia dell’introduzione della tecnologia di comunicazione Wi-Fi presso l’Ospedale Regina Margherita di Torino. Secondo il comunicato stampa emesso lo scorso 2 Febbraio dalla struttura [1], questo ospedale è il primo completamente coperto da Rete Wi-Fi libera e gratuita per tutti. Sono stati attivati 40 access point, per la connessione senza fili dei pazienti e dei loro parenti. Inoltre sono messi a disposizione tablet ai piccoli pazienti presenti nella struttura. 

A ben vedere, nel nostro paese sin dall’inizio dell’invasione di stazioni radio base di telefonia mobile iniziata negli anni ’90 si è generalmente osservato il principio di risparmiare, per quanto possibile i luoghi sensibili presenti nel tessuto urbano, tra i quali appunto gli ospedali, minimizzandone le esposizioni dovute a tali emissioni. Negli ultimi tempi, questo principio appare sempre più essere messo in discussione e disatteso anche negli ambienti scolastici e ospedalieri, con l’introduzione di reti tecnologiche senza fili sempre più vicine ai pazienti, invadenti e impattanti, promossa da governi ed enti portatrici di interessi economici nel nome del cosiddetto progresso tecnologico.

Tale iniziativa, come altre analoghe dello stesso tenore, si pone platealmente in direzione opposta alle indicazioni che incoraggiano l’uso di prudenza, indicazioni provenienti da numerosi scienziati indipendenti e associazioni mediche a livello internazionale, nei confronti dell’esposizione cronica e non intenzionale a radiazioni elettromagnetiche di bassa intensità in luoghi pubblici quali scuole e ospedali.

Quello che sta avvenendo ai giorni nostri con l’esposizione a radiazioni elettromagnetiche artificiali di tanti ordini di grandezza più intense del fondo naturale (quasi inesistente) a cui il genere umano e tutti gli organismi viventi sul nostro pianeta sono stati sottoposti sino a pochi decenni fa è un enorme esperimento ambientale senza consenso informato nel quale a noi è stato assegnato forzatamente il ruolo di cavie, con poche possibilità di scelta. Il rispetto del principio di precauzione nel caso di un agente ambientale con potenziale impatto su larga scala sulla salute umana, che dovrebbe essere un caposaldo di qualunque politica di salute pubblica, sancito anche nel Trattato dell’Unione Europea, è semplicemente deriso e inosservato.

Nel 2011, IARC (Agenzia Internazionale per la Ricerca sul Cancro) ha determinato che esiste evidenza scientifica sufficiente per classificare le radiazioni a radiofrequenza nel gruppo 2B dei possibili cancerogeni umani. Questo è il tipo di esposizione derivante da telefoni cellulari e cordless, stazioni di telefonia mobile, access point Wi-Fi e terminali senza fili (smartphone, tablet).

Molte migliaia di studi scientifici nel corso degli ultimi decenni avvertono di effetti biologici e potenziali danni alla salute causati da tali tipi di esposizioni, a livelli di intensità molto bassi rispetto a quelli previsti dagli standard di sicurezza occidentali. Questi ultimi si pongono l’obiettivo della protezione da rischi alla salute dovuti a effetti acuti, ma non offrono alcuna protezione per effetti sulla salute a lungo termine, che si possono manifestare durante la restante vita dell’individuo coinvolto.

Tra i tanti allarmanti e inascoltati studi esistenti, lo studio di Atasoy (2012) su laptop Wi-Fi riporta che esposizioni a laptop connessi senza fili a 0.091 W/Kg aumentano il danno al DNA e riducono la capacità di riparazione del DNA negli spermatozoi e “sollevano dubbi circa l’esposizione a radiofrequenza dai dispositivi con accesso in rete di tipo Wi-Fi per gli organismi in fase di sviluppo in età riproduttiva, con un potenziale effetto sulla fertilità e l’integrità delle linee germinali“.

Tra le azioni raccomandate espresse nell’epilogo del BioInitiative Report [3] , un corposo trattato redatto da scienziati indipendenti di fama internazionale nel 2007 e aggiornato nel 2012 e 2014, che passa in rassegna gli effetti biologici di cui si ha evidenza scientifica,vi è quella di scoraggiare risolutamente l’utilizzo di dispositivi senza fili e di rimpiazzarli con dispositivi collegati alla rete tramite cavi, in modo che le esposizioni elettromagnetiche si abbattano drasticamente. Le classi di persone che dovrebbero essere maggiormente protette dai rischi di danni alla salute, secondo questi scienziati dovrebbero essere proprio le persone malate e i bambini, ovvero la popolazione di un tipico ospedale. Proprio un ospedale tedesco (University Hospital RWTH Aachen) ha creato un portale di informazione che sintetizza i dati della ricerca scientifica sugli effetti dei campi elettromagnetici [4].

Inquinamento Elettromagnetico: Effetti biologico sanitari a breve e lungo termine – Borgomanero, 6 febbraio 2016

Elettrosensibili“I SABATI DELLA SALUTE”, organizzati dalla “Associazione Mimosa Amici del DH Oncologico di Borgomanero”, hanno avuto inizio sabato 6 febbraio 2016 con una conferenza tenuta dal nostro Vicepresidente dr. Paolo Orio sul tema “Inquinamento elettromagnetico: effetti biologico sanitari a breve e lungo termine”.

ElettrosensibiliDurante l’incontro si è cercato come sempre di fornire informazioni accurate sull’Inquinamento Elettromagnetico, attualmente una delle più grandi minacce per la salute umana e per l’ambiente, soprattutto per quanto riguarda quello in Alta Frequenza generato dall’uso di tecnologie e dispositivi Wireless.

ElettrosensibiliProprio la scarsa conoscenza del pericolo da parte della popolazione sta portando sempre più persone ad adottare connessioni Wireless in sostituzione di quelle cablate, e questo sta già avendo pesanti ripercussioni di tipo sanitario, destinate ad aggravarsi ulteriormente nel tempo.

Per questo motivo sono state fornite anche nozioni di igiene elettrica, spiegando quali comportamenti tenere e quali accorgimenti adottare per minimizzare l’esposizione ai Campi Elettromagnetici in Alta (ma anche in Bassa) Frequenza.

ElettrosensibiliIl pubblico era numeroso e, come spesso accade durante questi incontri, nuovi Elettrosensibili si sono presentati ai nostri rappresentanti a testimonianza del fatto che la Elettrosensibilità è in aumento e, fortunatamente, sta crescendo anche la consapevolezza del problema.


“I SABATI DELLA SALUTE” continueranno nei mesi successivi con interventi di altri esperti e si terranno sempre  presso l’Aula Magna dell’Ospedale di Borgomanero (NO), dalle ore 16:00 alle ore 18:00.

Public Health Policy Implications of Current Studies on Wireless Transmitting Devices and Pregnancy

5 February 2016 – Mobilfunk Newsletter EMF Omega News

Please watch this great short video

in which Dr. Devra Davis shares research on effects from prenatal exposure to cell phone radiation: 3 times more DNA damage, spinal cord damage, damage to memory and thinking part of the brain (hippocampus) from only 15 minutes per day of cell phone radiation exposure for 7 days. Results were statistically significant.  The faster cells grow, the more vulnerable they are to toxic exposures.  Newborns double their brain size after birth.

Asbestos used in baby PJ suits to protect them against fires!!! Cigarette advertisements showing doctors smoking, women can lose weight if they reach for a cigarette instead of a sweet.
Asbestos and cigarettes are examples where a generation of people are paying the price for poor US public health policy – the insistence of absolute proof of harm before taking action, rather than take preventive measures from the beginning.
Cell phones were never tested for long-term health effects before introduction to market because they were presumed to be safe as long as there was not enough microwave power to heat your body’s tissues.  Since cell phones were presumed to be safe, this presumption was then applied subsequently to all other wireless products since they all emitted less microwave power (however ipads and smart phones emit more wireless radiation than voice only cell phones).  In our current uncontrolled environment of ubiquitous wireless radiation, children and people are actually part of a mass nonconsentual experiment now where we are all producing the data that will have to show serious harm before our government will take any action.

Well we are starting to get that data now.  Read below.  How much longer do you think the US government will wait to take action?  5 years? 10 years?  How many people will get sick or die waiting for the FCC to change its limits?

The Statistics – Autism, ADHD, Cancer, Brain Tumors, Asthma, Alzheimer’s, Autoimmune Disease

Increase in neurological disease deaths, US particularly acute – 400%+ increase in US in age >75 group, the highest increase out of 21 countries. 64% increase in US in early onset dementia deaths (age 55-74 group), making US second highest out of 21 contries in this group. see charts below and
– Increase in early onset dementia – more people getting dementia a decade earlier now compared to 20 years ago, with more people in their 40s getting diagnosed
After accidents, cancer is the next highest cause of death in children, and now 1 in 2 people will get cancer
Increase in Malignant Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors in American children. For ages 0-14 between 2000-2010, an annual increase of 0.6%/yr. In ages 15-19, there was a significant increase between 2000-2008, with an annual percentage increase of 1.0%/yr.
Autism increased 600% over last 2 decades per AutismSpeaks.orgnow about 1% of children is autistic. see chart below (however some sources contend that the increase is due to changes in reporting and diagnosis criteria)
Asthma has increased 28% over the last decade – number of Americans with asthma increased by 28% from 2001 to 2011, per the CDC
ADHD has increased 53% in the US over the last decade according to the CDC. For ages 14 to 17, 19 % of boys and 10% of girls now have ADHD.
Autoimmune disease on the rise per the CDC – between 2001 and 2009, the incidence of type 1 diabetes increased by 23% in the US. Finland also showed a similar increase. Environmental factors attributed as the cause

Why are these Statistics going up? Biological Mechanisms and Regulations

What do asthma, autism, autoimmune disease, ADHD and Alzheimer’s have in common?  They can all be caused by compromised integrity in the tight junction barriers in our body, which wireless microwave radiation can cause.  “The opening of our tight junction barriers by electromagnetic fields can account for many modern illnesses, ranging from asthma to multiple allergies and Alzheimer’s disease.”We would not expect an immediate effect because the brain has spare capacity, but prolonged or repeated exposure to cell phone or similar radiation would be expected to cause a progressive loss of functional neurons and result in early dementia and Alzheimer’s disease in humans. The extreme sensitivity of the blood-brain barrier to the radiation could mean that even sitting close to someone using a cell phone could affect you too.” Read more about it here , where Dr. Andrew Goldsworthy, former advisor to the European Space Agency also predicted there would be an increase in these 4 diseases with increased wireless radiation exposure.  (Years ago he and many scientists predicted this would happen .)

In 2015, Dr. Martin Pall, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry at Washington State University, identified a mechanism where microwave radiation can activate VGCCs (voltage gated calcium channels) in brain cells, which increases intracellular calcium, which can cause autism by disrupting synapse formation.  Wireless radiation activating the VGCC and increasing intracellular calcium leads to degradation of proteins in the tight barrier junctions needed to maintain the integrity of the blood-brain barrierwhich leads to many neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Alzheimer’s and dementia).  With enough exposure to increasing intracellular calcium, spines can actually disappear, and end up with neurons that are missing synapses completely, so neurons are not connected to each other anymore.  Read more about it here

So what happened 2 decades ago in the US before all these statistics shot up?
One significant event was Congress passing the The 1996 Telecommunications Act which allowed the siting of cell towers to be anywhere a wireless provider wanted to put it and forbade local governments to consider any potential health effects of a location – that’s why we have cell towers now on school campuses and in residential areas, with no minimum distance requirements.  This also essentially negated our first amendment right to free speech to talk about negative health effects at cell tower hearings, because whatever was said in this regard would be ignored.  How could this happen?  After the wireless industry made $50 million in political contributions, the TCA passed (p. 115, Zapped, by Ann Louise Gittleman), and the number of cell towers increased from 66,000 in 1998 to 300,000 in 2013 and the number of cell towers will continue to increase, pushed by the FCC’s Tom Wheeler to provide faster speeds, when in June 2015 the FCC fined AT&T a RECORD $100 million for providing speeds slower than advertised Now Sprint has plans to increase their cell towers to three times what Verizon has so it can become the fastest network in the country  If all other providers follow suit, we could easily end up exceeding 500,000 cell towers in a few years.

What are FCC limits for cell tower radiation?  FCC limit for pulsed wireless radiation is 1000uW/cm2 for 30 minutes, which is the level at which you would start experiencing heating effects of your tissues, hence called a “thermal” limit.  Anything below this level is FCC compliant.  The levels near a cell tower or Wi-Fi router can be 0.1-1uW/cm2.  Sounds low right?  However realize that background levels in areas without a cell tower or router nearby are as low as 0.0003uW/cm2, which it is in my backyard and in school parking lots, about a million times lower than the FCC limit.   So FCC limits do not protect you against health effects that occur well below 1000uW/cm2, that start as low as 0.01uW/cm2. Read here to see the health effects that occur between 0.1-1uW/cm2 as reported in the 2012 Bionitiative Report, a meta-analysis of ~4000 peer-reviewed studies    You will see headaches, memory/ concentration/sleep problems, sperm defects, heart problems, increased stress hormone levels.  See chart below that compares US limits to other countries – US limits are orders of magnitude higher than most countries.

If the FCC fines $100 million for slow speeds, shouldn’t fines for exceeding FCC’s limits on wireless radiation be much higher?   The injuries from thermal effects of microwave radiation according to AM BEST are “eye damage, sterility, and congnitive impairments.  But fines are paltry for exceeding FCC limits.  T-Mobile fined $60,000 for exceeding FCC limits

Verizon settles by paying only $50,000 in 2014 for exceeding FCC limits

Tips for safer cell phone and wireless device use (most from Dr. Davis video above)

Avoid carrying phone and holding any wireless device against body (devices should be used at a table)
Reduce talk time – don’t use cell phones for long conversations
Use speakermode or airtube headset (a headset with a wire transmits the radiation directly into the ear)
Avoid using device in a car, train, elevator (metal enclosure traps the RF radiation inside, which magnifies the radiation inside).  Exception: OK if tethered to blue tooth in car
Avoid cordless phone use (same as a cell phone)
If using Wi-Fi, download then turn off Wi-Fi antenna (rather than leaving it on all the time on your device)
As much as possible, keep devices in Airplane mode (which means antennas are turned off)
Turn off all the antennas you aren’t using on your device
Turn off Wi-Fi Router when not in use, also turn off at night, use a lower power setting
Keep home Wi-Fi routers at least 10 ft away from where you spend a lot of time
Sleep far away from smart meter

Talk too long on cellphone? Your sperm may be at risk, Israel researchers find

2 February 2016 – “” Health & Science, by JUDY SIEGEL-ITZKOVICH

mobile phone

Men who speak on their cellphone for more than one hour a day or keep their phone close to their groin risk significant damage to the quality of their sperm and their ability to father a child, according to researchers at Haifa’s Technion- Israel Institute of Technology and Carmel Medical Center.

Dr. Yulia Sheinfeld and colleagues in the division of fertility and in-vitro fertilization of the obstetrics/gynecology department at Carmel published their findings in Reproductive BioMedicine Online.

Between 30 percent and 40% of all infertility cases involve male fertility problems. Some studies have shown a continuous decline in semen quality in recent decades. One postulated contributing factor is radio frequency electromagnetic radiation emitted from cellphones.

For the current study, questionnaires assessing demographic data and characteristics of cell phone usage were completed by 106 men referred for semen analysis.

The researchers found that talking on cellphones for an hour a day or more and talking on the devices while they are charging are behaviors that are associated with higher rates of abnormal semen concentration. Among men who reported holding their phones within 50 centimeters of the groin, a higher rate of abnormal sperm concentration was found. Semen concentration was abnormal among 47% of those who stored their phone in their pants pockets, while it was abnormal in only 11% of the general male population.

Other factors in reducing fertility included smoking.

The authors said the study was small and urged that large-scale studies be carried out. However, in the meantime, they recommended male users to speak less on cellphones, as well as to avoid sleeping next to them, carrying them near the groin area, or speaking on the devices while they are charging.

Instead, the researchers suggest using earphones or a speaker phone.


“Sì alle reti cablate. No al wi-fi nelle scuole”, il Codacons aderisce all’iniziativa del comitato “Lecce via cavo”

5 febbraio 2016 – “” Quotidiano di Lecce e provincia

classe-banchi-vuoti-a-scuolaLECCE – Il Codacons di Lecce aderisce all’iniziativa del comitato “Lecce via cavo”, che ha depositato nelle scorse ore la richiesta didisattivazione o non installazione di reti wireless nelle scuole o su edifici scolastici. Richiesta che è stata inviata al Comune di Lecce, alla Provincia, al dirigente dell’Ufficio scolastico provinciale e ai dirigenti di tutte le scuole del leccese.

Come si legge nel comunicato firmato dal Comitato “la letteratura scientifica evidenzia gli effetti nocivi per la salute umana legati alle esposizioni alle RF-CEM (radiofrequenze-campi elettromagnetici) emessi dai dispositivi per la telecomunicazione (wifi, tablet, antenne per la telefonia, ripetitori, cellulari, ecc.).

Si tratta di effetti biologici che si verificano per esposizioni notevolmente inferiori ai valori limite di legge. I sintomi più comuni sono: mal di testa, insonnia, difficoltà di concentrazione, stanchezza, perdita di memoria, ritardi nell’apprendimento ed iperattività (bambini), depressione, tinnito, nausea e vomito, aumento della pressione arteriosa. Tutti sintomi che, per la loro aspecificità, spesso non vengono riconosciuti come probabilmente derivanti dall’esposizione alle RF-CEM”.

I bambini, gli adolescenti, le donne incinte, gli anziani e tutti quei soggetti con preesistenti problemi di salute sarebbero particolarmente vulnerabili.

“A sostegno della richiesta, basata comunque sul Principio di precauzione sancito dal Consiglio d’Europa e dal Parlamento Europeo, il comitato “Lecce via cavo” riporta numerose decisioni politiche che potranno apparire in controtendenza rispetto al dilagare del wireless, soprattutto nelle scuole. Si va dalla recente legge francese (febbraio 2015), che vieta il wifi negli asili nido e nelle scuole materne e ne limita fortemente l’uso nelle scuole primarie e medie (dove è consentita l’accensione soltanto nei momenti di effettivo utilizzo, dopo il quale i dispositivi devono essere disattivati), alle mozioni della provincia di Bolzano e della regione Piemonte, che impegnano le rispettive giunte a sostituire gli impianti esistenti con impianti a minor emissione (in pratica, cablati)”.

Il Comitato chiede quindi che siano intraprese tutte le misure per ridurre l’esposizione alle RF-CEM “prestando particolare attenzione ai bambini ed ai giovani e che sia convocato urgentemente un tavolo di confronto per discutere i necessari e urgenti provvedimenti da adottare in merito”.
