• Top KSU scientist sounds danger warning


Prof. Sultan Ayoub Meo.

RIYADH: A renowned professor of King Saud University (KSU) here has warned of radiation danger from cell phone towers, saying that the radiation emissions from towers can cause many health hazards because of their dense installations and unscientific proliferation.

In a new study, Prof. Sultan Ayoub Meo, a professor at KSU’s College of Medicine, has for the first time proved that the radiation from towers also causes diabetes mellitus.

Sultan, whose research findings on radiation from mobile phone base station towers (MPBST) has been published in the “International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health”, a reputable Swiss science journal, said that “this is the first study added in the global science literature about radiation and its link with type 2 diabetes mellitus.”

The study is based on the effects of Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Filed Radiation (RF-EMFR) generated by MPBSTs on hemoglobin.

Sultan’s new study has also raised a question mark over the safety of cell phone towers in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East countries. It is interesting to note here that the use of mobile phones has markedly increased among both gender and all age groups in the Kingdom and across the world during the last two decades. He said that “there are about 7.3 billion mobile subscriptions worldwide, and this figure is more than the world’s population.” Spelling out the main findings of his study, Sultan told Arab News in an exclusive interview that “radiation generated by mobile phones and their base stations towers ranges between 400 MHz and 3 GHz.”

Mobile phone companies, Sultan said, installed towers in residential and commercial areas including on/near school buildings, which has stirred up widespread public concern about the hazards of RF-EMF radiation.

He also said that the radiation emanating from towers causes many other health hazards like headache, depression, high blood pressure and sleep disorders besides damaging nervous, cardio-vascular as well as reproductive systems.

The KSU professor said that about 382 million people globally are suffering from diabetes mellitus, and this number is expected to surge to 592 million by 2035 as per the data shared by the International Diabetic Federation. “In 2014 alone, a total of 4.9 million people died due to the complications of diabetes mellitus,” said Sultan, adding that this deadly disease took the life of one individual every seven seconds.

In this new research study, which for the first time discovered the link between cell tower radiation and diabetes; Sultan and his colleagues selected two different elementary schools in Riyadh region.

The team led by Sultan selected 159 apparently healthy students (96 from one school and 63 from another school) of the same age, gender, nationality, regional, cultural and socio-economic status.

Blood samples were collected from all the students and the HbA1c was analyzed.  The team found that the students, who were exposed to high RF-EMF generated by MPBS had significantly higher HbA1c than the students who were exposed to low RF-EMF.



Diabetes and ElectroMagnetic Fields: the evidence

The connection between exposure to artificial electromagnetic radiation in high and low frequencies and the changing health of diabetics and MS sufferers is an established fact that has been demonstrated beyond doubt in numerous scientific studies [1] [2].

This correlation can be demonstrated not only scientifically but also informally by any diabetic by comparing their glycaemia levels during a few minutes spent in an irradiated zone and in one where the radiation level is low. Those who continue to dismiss this as “pseudo-science” are simply denying the facts.

It has been observed that the number of children under 10 who suffer from type 1 diabetes is continually increasing and has in fact doubled in the last 15 years.

Officially the health authorities do not know the reason for this increase.

Genetic factors play a part in type 1 diabetes, but there is no doubt that other factors are responsible, including the environment.

Type 1 diabetes, which is insulin dependant, is an auto-immune illness caused by the hyperactivity of the immune system.

In this pathology, the insulinsecreting cells of the pancreas (the beta cells of the islets of Langerhans) are destroyed. This means that the body can no longer control the level of sugar in the blood (glycaemia). If this is not treated it can lead to a whole series of imbalances that can be fatal.

Exposure to artificial HF microwave radiation during the night significantly reduces ciliary movement thus diminishing the supply of mucus to the pancreas and causing clogging.
Unfortunately this process has received little attention from scientists – why not?

At present the causes of type 1 diabetes have not been clearly defined. Doctors suppose that environmental factors could cause the auto-immune reaction in people who are genetically predisposed. The role of viruses in the onset of the disease has been cited several times.

Certain experts speculate that repeated exposure to different viruses causes the gradual destruction of insulin-producing cells. This may go unnoticed for many years since 90% of them have to be destroyed before the diabetes manifests.

Various tests are being carried out to validate this hypothesis while other scientists are studying different environmental factors that might affect the immune system and set off an auto-immune reaction. There is no doubt that diabetes is a serious condition that often requires several daily insulin injections and in the long run can affect organs such as the eyes, the nerves, the heart, etc.

Dr Magda Havas, professor of environmental sciences in Canada, has directed several studies that have not only shown a connection between the increase in diabetes and EMF exposure, but also the effectiveness of filters on ELF electrical equipment that help to reduce the suffering and the symptoms of diabetics.

“We can take a diabetic person and put them in an environment polluted by EMR and measure their sugar levels,” she explained in an interview with Toronto magazine.

“If we then put them in a clean environment, within half an hour their blood sugar level is invariably lower. When someone is exposed to EM radiation they become a real barometer.”

Scientific publication Informa Health Care: Magda Havas “Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity: Biological Effects of Dirty Electricity with Emphasis on Diabetes and Multiple Sclerosis”

All the diabetics living near relay antennas can easily prove the damaging effects of exposure to artificial HF microwave radiation by observing the spectacular increase in blood sugar levels when they are close to a source of radiation, as can be seen from the reading noted in their personal glycaemia record.
From this it is possible to determine the exact date when a diabetic has been exposed to radiation.
In conclusion: the effect of EMF irradiation on a diabetic can be measured directly and immediately. The reading in the personal record provides definite proof, and shows that a diabetic exposed to artificial HF microwave radiation has to increase their dose of insulin significantly.

Interference of artificial EMFs with the human metabolism

It is important to understand that the human body, which is totally
bio-electromagnetic, cannot function normally without certain conditions. The first of these is living in a safe environment free of
damaging factors.
Whatever the state of the immune system, an environment polluted
by artificial radiation makes it weaker. If it is already stressed the
body can no longer function normally and the endocrine system will
be seriously disrupted.
This creates The Microwave Syndrome.
Having a good immune system is the most important factor in maintaining health. When it is weak our health is endangered,
making us more vulnerable to disease and even to death.

Being in poor health is not hereditary, being in good health is not a matter of chance. Taking a new approach and taking charge of one’s health often means making changes in one’s life-style and in one’s environment, in particular taking simple steps to ward against the worst of environmental pollutions, artificial microwave radiation. Doing this boosts the immune system naturally and rapidly, producing positive results in one or two days for diabetics and for the Electro-HyperSensitive. Hence the urgent need to create White Zones and Refuge Zones for the EHS who desperately need to refresh themselves or simply to exist in peace, a right that is at present denied them.

mobile phone radiation
mobile phone base station


Installation of mobile phone base stations in residential areas has initiated public debate about possible adverse effects on human health.
This study aimed to determine the association of exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic field radiation (RF-EMFR) generated by mobile phone base stations with glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and occurrence of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
For this study, two different elementary schools (school-1 and school-2 )were selected. We recruited 159 students in total; 96 male students from school-1, with age range 12–16 years, and 63 male students with age range 12–17 years from school-2. Mobile phone base stations with towers existed about 200 m away from the school buildings. RF-EMFR was measured inside both schools. In school-1, RF-EMFR was 9.601 nW/cm2 at frequency of 925 MHz, and students had been exposed to RF-EMFR for a duration of 6 h daily, five days in a week. In school-2, RF-EMFR was 1.909 nW/cm2 at frequency of 925 MHz and students had been exposed for 6 h daily, five days in a week. 5–6 mL blood was collected from all the students and HbA1c was measured by using a Dimension Xpand Plus Integrated Chemistry System, Siemens. The mean HbA1c for the students who were exposed to high RF-EMFR was significantly higher (5.44 ± 0.22) than the mean HbA1c for the students who were exposed to low RF-EMFR (5.32 ± 0.34) (p = 0.007). Moreover, students who were exposed to high RF-EMFR generated by MPBS had a significantly higher risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus (p = 0.016) relative to their counterparts who were exposed to low RF-EMFR. It is concluded that exposure to high RF-EMFR generated by MPBS is associated with elevated levels of HbA1c and risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
