“Desperately seeking white zone” – docufilm sulla Elettrosensibilità

[EN]

Having already won two awards for his documentaries about the environment, Marc Khanne delivers a new fast-paced and well-argued human-interest movie: Between the push for 4G and how some people are suffering, what should we think about the “even faster and more interconnected” world that we are being promised?

[IT]

Avendo già vinto due premi per i suoi documentari sull’ambiente, Marc Khanne offre un nuovo film frenetico e  ben argomentato di interesse umano: Tra la spinta del 4G e come alcune persone stanno soffrendo, cosa dovremmo pensare dell'”ancora più veloce e più interconnesso” mondo che ci viene promesso?

“HOW WE ARE KILLING OURSELVES – THE DANGER OF WIRELESS RADIATION”

13 April 2016 – from a post of Dafna Tachover on her Facebook page

“HOW WE ARE KILLING OURSELVES – THE DANGER OF WIRELESS RADIATION”

An excellent 30 minutes documentary from Israel about the epidemic of Electro-Sensitivity. It was aired last night in prime time with 22% rating! It was supposed to be 10 minutes on ES as part of another film but eventually as they understood the extent of the problem and how important it is to warn the public, they decided to do a 30 minutes documentary only on ES. They explained that at least 800,000 people in Israel, i.e. 10% already suffer from different levels of ES and likely the rates are higher. The gov rep, the 2 clowns who lied to the Israeli Supreme Court admitted that the thermal safety standard is irrelevant…opposite to what they told the Supreme Court. Most importantly, this movie created a lot of buzz, undoubted ES and was another strong warning that radiation harms are not potential but exsting, an in a scale of epidemic. Many participated from Israel and from the US including Jennifer Wood whose testimony is very powerful and Prof. David Carpenter. They also mentioned the tragic story of Jenny Fry, the 15 Y/O from England who committed suicide because of the Wi-Fi in school. Hope to be able to get their permission to put subtitles.

“COME STIAMO UCCIDENDO NOI STESSI – I PERICOLI DELLA RADIAZIONE WIRELESS”

Un ottimo documentario di 30 minuti da Israele riguardo all’epidemia di Elettrosensibilità (ES). E ‘stato mandato in onda ieri sera in prima serata con uno share del 22%! La parte sulla ES doveva durare 10 minuti come parte di un altro filmato, ma alla fine, poiché è stata capita l’entità del problema e quanto sia importante mettere in guardia l’opinione pubblica, hanno deciso di fare un documentario di 30 minuti solo sulla ES. Hanno spiegato che almeno 800.000 persone in Israele, vale a dire il 10%, già soffrono a diversi livelli di ES e probabilmente i tassi sono anche più alti. I rappresentanti governativi, i 2 clown che avevano mentito alla Corte Suprema israeliana, hanno ammesso che gli standard di sicurezza basati su criteri termici sono inappropriati… l’opposto di quello che avevano detto alla Corte Suprema. Ancora più importante, questo filmato ha creato un sacco di brusio, ha fatto uscire dal dubbio la ES ed è stato un altro forte avvertimento che i danni da radiazioni non sono potenziali, ma esistenti, e in una scala di epidemia. Molti hanno partecipato da Israele e dagli Stati Uniti tra cui Jennifer Wood, la cui testimonianza è molto potente, e il Prof. David Carpenter. Hanno inoltre menzionato la tragica storia di Jenny Fry, la quindicenne dall’Inghilterra che si è suicidata a causa del Wi-Fi a scuola. Spero di essere in grado di ottenere il loro permesso di mettere i sottotitoli.

Jimmy Gonzalez 1972-2014: *Cell Phones Cause Cancer*

[VIDEO – Per non dimenticare.

Ucciso dal suo cellulare all’età di 42 anni. 

Il procuratore Jimmy Gonzalez, ex Marine, così nel 2012 affrontava il suo consiglio comunale per mettere in guardia circa i pericoli correlati all’uso dei telefoni cellulari.

Due anni più tardi, soccombeva ad un glioblastoma multiforme (una forma di tumore al cervello) al quarto stadio originato vicino al suo orecchio sinistro, lato dal quale teneva il suo telefono cellulare durante le conversazioni.
Ha inoltre sviluppato un tumore al cuore, vicino al taschino dei vestiti dove soleva tenere il cellulare, e anche un tumore del nervo sul palmo della mano con la quale reggeva il telefono.]

14 April 2016 – “www.buergerwelle.de”

Attorney Jimmy Gonzalez, a former Marine here addresses his city council in 2012 to warn about the dangers of cellphones.

Two years later, he succumbed to a Stage Four glioblastoma multiform brain cancer next to his left ear, where he used his cell phone. He also developed a tumor in his heart, next to where he kept his cellphone in his suit pocket, as well as a nerve tumor on the palm of his
hand, from which he held his phone.

This father of two young children was killed by his cellphone at age 42.

Israeli TV Warns of Wi-Fi Dangers in Schools

7 March 2016 – “www.odwyerpr.com”, by 

Israel’s Channel 1 national TV program aired a 17-minute segment Feb. 24 examining charges that electromagnetic radiation from Wi-Fi and other sources poses a danger to citizens, especially children.

Also covered is the radiation from cell towers, wireless utility meters, Wi-Fi routers and computers.

The program is in Hebrew but English subtitles are provided.

Teachers, parents, technicians and government officials are among those interviewed.  Views of those who have become hypersensitive to electromagnetic radiation are obtained.

The topic has yet to gain traction with the bulk of Israeli media, say some of the participants.

Amir Borenstein posted the tape on YouTube.

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

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 https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/people-are-developing-dementia-earlier-and-dying-of-it-more-a-study-shows/2015/08/06/599b16b8-3c0a-11e5-8e98-115a3cf7d7ae_story.html?wprss=rss_world
– 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 https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/people-are-developing-dementia-earlier-and-dying-of-it-more-a-study-shows/2015/08/06/599b16b8-3c0a-11e5-8e98-115a3cf7d7ae_story.html?wprss=rss_world
After accidents, cancer is the next highest cause of death in children, and now 1 in 2 people will get cancer http://abcnews.go.com/Health/conquering-childhood-cancer/story?id=20348929
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. http://www.saferemr.com/2015/05/brain-tumor-rates-are-rising-in-us-role.html
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 https://www.healthline.com/health-news/children-allergies-and-asthma-on-the-rise-110813#1
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. http://www.wnd.com/2013/04/radical-increase-in-kids-prescribed-ritalin/
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 http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/246960.php

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  http://www.cellphonetaskforce.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Biol-Effects-EMFs-2012-NZ2.pdf , 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 http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/reveh.2015.30.issue-2/reveh-2015-0001/reveh-2015-0001.xml

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 2013http://www.ctia.org/your-wireless-life/how-wireless-works/annual-wireless-industry-survey 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 http://finance.yahoo.com/news/fcc-seeks-100-mn-t-fine-over-unlimited-174431152.html 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  http://money.cnn.com/2015/09/18/technology/sprint-network/  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 http://www.bioinitiative.org/report/wp-content/uploads/pdfs/BioInitiativeReport-RF-Color-Charts.pdf    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.  http://www.ambest.com/directories/bestconnect/EmergingRisks.pdf  But fines are paltry for exceeding FCC limits.  T-Mobile fined $60,000 for exceeding FCC limits http://www.phonescoop.com/articles/article.php?a=16786

Verizon settles by paying only $50,000 in 2014 for exceeding FCC limits http://www.journalinquirer.com/connecticut_and_region/fcc-keeps-secret-records-from-radiation-probe-at-verizon-s/article_0dbb367e-62d9-11e5-99da-ebeab2025003.html

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

“The truth about mobile phone and wireless radiation: what we know, what we need to find out, and what you can do now”
Presented by Dr Devra Davis, Visiting Professor of Medicine at the Hebrew University Hadassah Medical School, and Visiting Professor of Medicine at Ondokuz Mayis University, Turkey.

The Lecture
What are the health effects of mobile phones and wireless radiation? While Australia has led the world in safety standards, including compulsory seat-belt legislation, plain packaging on cigarettes, and product and food disclosure legislation, it falls behind in addressing the significant issues associated with mobile phone use. In this Dean’s Lecture, epidemiologist and electromagnetic radiation expert, Dr Devra Davis, will outline the evolution of the mobile phone and smartphone, and provide a background to the current 19 year old radiation safety standards (SAR), policy developments and international legislation. New global studies on the health consequences of mobile/wireless radiation will be presented, including children’s exposure and risks.
