Effects Of Electromagnetic Radiation On Mitochondria

[Un aspetto cruciale della esposizione alle Radiazioni Elettromagnetiche in Alta Frequenza (Radiofrequenze e Microonde) usate nella tecnologia Wireless è il danno mitocondriale che ne consegue e che non può essere riparato(!).
Tutto questo porta a pesanti ripercussioni per l’organismo, il quale malfunzionerà in modo permanente(!).

Ricordiamoci che ogni giorno adulti ma anche bambini sono esposti a livelli critici di Inquinamento Elettromagnetico in Alta Frequenza e questo sta compromettendo il futuro di tutti, ma soprattutto quello dei bambini. Chi prenderà in carico tutti questi soggetti sempre stanchi ed impossibilitati a lavorare/pensare a causa del deficit energetico da danno mitocondriale?

Il seguente articolo espone con chiarezza le cause del danno mitocondriale e lo abbiamo tradotto per voi per consentirvi di leggerlo più agevolmente.

Wireless communications have increased significantly in modern times and concerns regarding their safety have grown as well. Wireless communications utilize high frequency radiation – radio frequencies and microwaves. Man-made electromagnetic radiation exerts numerous biological effects that begin at the molecular level and eventually lead to cellular, tissue and organ dysfunction. Electromagnetic radiation exerts its effects at the sub-cellular level by altering molecular rotation and vibration, increasing the collisions between molecules and breaking chemical bonds which ultimately affect structure and function (1). This has direct effects on energy production in the cell. Mitochondria are the organelles responsible for cellular energy production and numerous other cell functions and they are adversely affected by electromagnetic radiation in many inter-related ways.

Electromagnetic radiation causes structural damage to mitochondria. Exposure to radiation causes swelling and cavitation in mitochondria as well as broken, disorganized and sparse mitochondrial cristae or folds (1, 3). The damage increases with prolonged exposure time even though the dose of radiation was low, therefore, long-term, low-dose exposure leads to significant damage. After three hours of microwave radiation, visible swelling of mitochondria increased and after twenty four hours, there was mitochondrial degeneration (1). Damage caused by radiation is cumulative. Radiation also damages the mitochondrial membrane which causes a decrease in mitochondrial membrane potential (1), which is responsible for the proton motive force and energy production in mitochondria, which eventually leads to apoptosis (1, 4) or cell death, since apoptosis is regulated by mitochondria.

Calcium homeostasis is impaired by electromagnetic radiation. Mitochondrial are responsible for regulating calcium homeostasis within the cell. Normally, extracellular calcium is greater than intracellular calcium and most intracellular calcium is stored in the mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum. Microwave radiation causes a significant increase in cytoplasmic calcium and this causes excess activation of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (1), a nonspecific pore in the mitochondrial membrane, which leads to increased membrane permeability, disrupting metabolic gradients between mitochondria and the cytosol. This then leads to the uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation (1), meaning oxidative phosphorylation is no longer yoked to the respiratory chain to synthesize ATP, so energy production ceases. Remaining ATP made by unaffected mitochondria also gets depleted and cell death ensues. Intracellular calcium increases also leads to swelling of mitochondria and if great, results in rupturing of mitochondria.

Oxidative stress and disturbed cellular signaling is caused by electromagnetic radiation. Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance between free radical production and anti-oxidant defense mechanisms. There is a significant increase in reactive oxygen species, decreases in antioxidant enzymes glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase and markers of lipid peroxidation and protein oxidation increase (1) when mitochondria are exposed to radiation. Radiation inhibits the mitochondrial respiratory chain by prolonging the lifespan of free radicals and impairing the anti-oxidant defense system (2). Enzyme functions and signaling pathways that are crucial to energy generation are disturbed by electromagnetic radiation. As mentioned above, calcium homeostasis is impaired and calcium is an important signaling molecule. The activity of cytochrome c oxidase, a critical enzyme in energy metabolism which transports electrons to oxygen to produce water and ATP, is suppressed (1). Oxidative stress and impaired signaling also affect mitochondrial gene expression.

Electromagnetic radiation damages mitochondrial genes and causes gene mutations. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) are more susceptible to external stimuli than nuclear DNA (1) and they lack the repair mechanisms of nuclear DNA (2). Radiation induces mtDNA strand breaks and the excess reactive oxygen species production caused by radiation exposure also causes mtDNA mutations (1, 2). Exposure to radiation causes a decline in mtDNA copy number and mtRNA transcripts (2) which, when combined with mitochondrial mutations, adds further burden to the cell by way of more defective mitochondrial genes being passed onto future mitochondria. Mitochondrial gene mutations in turn amplify oxidative stress by encoding deficient critical proteins required for the respiratory chain (2). A vicious cycle is created by exposure to radiation whereby mitochondria are overwhelmed and cell death occurs.

Apoptosis increases after exposure to electromagnetic radiation (4). Exposure to radiation triggers a series of inter-related events – structural damage, impaired signaling, oxidative stress and gene mutations – that culminates in cell death. The cumulative damage causes an imbalance of pro-apoptotic and anti-apoptotic proteins which leads to a decrease in the mitochondrial membrane potential (4) and the release of cytochrome c which activates caspase-signaling pathways that lead to apoptotic cell death (1, 4). Although apoptosis may be beneficial in removing damaged cells, when it is excessive, it can be problematic because it can eventually lead to systemic dysfunction in the organism.

Excessive apoptosis caused by man-made electromagnetic radiation is problematic for the nervous system. The nervous system is very susceptible to the effects of radiation. The brain is more sensitive to electromagnetic radiation than other organs because it has a very high metabolic rate and a great demand for oxygen, making it very vulnerable to energy metabolism disorders (1). Numerous pathological changes can occur in the brain as a consequence of excessive radiation exposure such as structural damage, neurotransmitter disruption (1, 3), altered electrical activity and increased permeability of the blood-brain barrier (2, 4). How severely one is affected depends on the frequency, duration and intensity of the radiation exposure (1, 3). Everyone is or will be, in some way, negatively affected by man-made electromagnetic radiation. Because of the ever increasing amount of antennas and towers being installed by telecommunications companies, radio frequency and microwave radiation is nearly impossible to avoid nowadays and it poses a serious threat to public health. It will only get worse unless action is taken to remove and reduce and not simply avoid the sources of man-made radiation.

Le comunicazioni Wireless sono aumentate in modo significativo nei tempi moderni e le preoccupazioni riguardo alla loro sicurezza sono cresciute consensualmente. Le comunicazioni Wireless utilizzano radiazioni ad Alta Frequenza – Radiofrequenze e Microonde. Le Radiazioni Elettromagnetiche artificiali esercitano numerosi effetti biologici che iniziano a livello molecolare e alla fine portano a disfunzione cellulare, tissutale e d’organo. Le Radiazioni Elettromagnetiche esercitano i loro effetti a livello sub-cellulare alterando rotazione e vibrazione molecolari, aumentando le collisioni tra le molecole e rompendo i legami chimici, che alla fine influenzano la struttura e la funzione (1). Questo ha effetti diretti sulla produzione di energia nella cellula. I mitocondri sono organelli responsabili della produzione di energia cellulare e di numerose altre funzioni delle cellule, e sono influenzati negativamente dalle Radiazioni Elettromagnetiche in molti modi tra loro collegati.

Le Radiazioni Elettromagnetiche provocano danni strutturali ai mitocondri. L’esposizione alle Radiazioni provoca gonfiore e cavitazione nei mitocondri, così come pieghe o creste mitocondriali rotte, disorganizzate e sparse (1, 3). I danni aumentano con tempi di esposizione prolungati anche se la dose di Radiazioni era bassa, quindi, nel lungo termine, l’esposizione a basse dosi porta a danni significativi. Dopo tre ore di Radiazione a Microonde, il gonfiore visibile dei mitocondri era aumentato, e dopo ventiquattro ore c’era degenerazione mitocondriale (1). I danni causati dalle Radiazioni sono cumulativi. Le Radiazioni danneggiano anche la membrana mitocondriale, cosa che causa una diminuzione nel potenziale di membrana mitocondriale (1), il quale è responsabile per la forza motrice protonica e la produzione di energia nei mitocondri, e questo finisce per causare apoptosi (1, 4) o morte cellulare, dato che l’apoptosi è regolata dai mitocondri.

L’omeostasi del calcio è compromessa dalle Radiazioni Elettromagnetiche. I mitocondri sono responsabili della regolazione dell’omeostasi del calcio all’interno della cellula. Normalmente, il calcio extracellulare è maggiore di quello intracellulare e la maggior parte del calcio intracellulare è immagazzinato in mitocondri e reticolo endoplasmatico. Le Radiazioni a Microonde provocano un notevole aumento del calcio citoplasmatico e questo provoca un eccesso di attivazione del poro di transizione della permeabilità mitocondriale (1), un poro aspecifico nella membrana mitocondriale, cosa che porta ad un aumento della permeabilità della membrana, interrompendo i gradienti metabolici tra mitocondri e citosol. Questo quindi porta al disaccoppiamento della fosforilazione ossidativa (1), che significa che la fosforilazione ossidativa non è più aggiogata alla catena respiratoria per sintetizzare ATP, così la produzione di energia cessa. L’ATP che rimane, sintetizzato dai mitocondri non colpiti, ugualmente finisce per ridursi e ne consegue morte cellulare. L’aumento del calcio intracellulare conduce pure lui al rigonfiamento dei mitocondri e, se elevato, esita in rottura dei mitocondri.

Stress ossidativo e segnali cellulari disturbati sono causati dalle Radiazioni Elettromagnetiche. Lo stress ossidativo si verifica quando vi è uno squilibrio tra la produzione di radicali liberi ed i meccanismi di difesa antiossidanti. C’è un significativo aumento delle specie reattive dell’ossigeno, diminuzione degli enzimi antiossidanti glutatione perossidasi e superossido dismutasi, e aumento dei marcatori di perossidazione lipidica e ossidazione proteica (1) quando i mitocondri sono esposti alle Radiazioni. Le Radiazioni inibiscono la catena respiratoria mitocondriale prolungando la durata dei radicali liberi e compromettendo il sistema di difesa antiossidante (2). Le funzioni degli enzimi e le vie di segnalazione cruciali per la produzione di energia sono disturbati dalle Radiazioni Elettromagnetiche. Come accennato in precedenza, l’omeostasi del calcio è compromessa e il calcio è una importante molecola di segnalazione. L’attività della citocromo c ossidasi, un enzima critico nel metabolismo energetico che trasporta elettroni all’ossigeno per produrre acqua e ATP, è soppressa (1). Stress ossidativo e segnali alterati colpiscono anche l’espressione dei geni mitocondriali.

Le Radiazioni Elettromagnetiche danneggiano i geni mitocondriali e provocano mutazioni genetiche. Il DNA mitocondriale (mtDNA) è più sensibile agli stimoli esterni del DNA nucleare (1) e manca dei meccanismi di riparazione tipici del DNA nucleare (2). Le Radiazioni inducono rotture nei filamenti del mtDNA e l’eccesso di produzione di specie reattive dell’ossigeno causato dalla esposizione alle Radiazioni causa anche mutazioni del mtDNA (1, 2). L’esposizione alle Radiazioni provoca un declino nel numero di copie del mtDNA e di trascrizioni del mtRNA (2), che, quando in combinazione con le mutazioni mitocondriali, aggiunge un ulteriore fardello alla cellula attraverso geni mitocondriali più difettosi che vengono passati ai futuri mitocondri. Le mutazioni dei geni mitocondriali, a loro volta, amplificano lo stress ossidativo mediante la codifica di difettose proteine critiche necessarie alla catena respiratoria (2). Dalla esposizione alle Radiazioni è stato creato un circolo vizioso in cui i mitocondri sono sopraffatti e si verifica morte cellulare.

L’apoptosi aumenta dopo l’esposizione alle Radiazioni Elettromagnetiche (4). L’esposizione alle Radiazioni innesca una serie di eventi tra loro collegati – danni strutturali, segnalazioni alterate, stress ossidativo e mutazioni geniche – che culminano nella morte cellulare. Il danno cumulativo provoca uno squilibrio di proteine pro-apoptotiche ed anti-apoptotiche che porta a una diminuzione del potenziale di membrana mitocondriale (4) e al rilascio del citocromo c, che attiva i percorsi di segnalazione della caspasi, i quali portano alla morte cellulare per apoptosi (1, 4 ). Sebbene l’apoptosi possa essere utile nel rimuovere le cellule danneggiate, quando è eccessiva, può essere problematica in quanto può portare infine a disfunzione sistemica dell’organismo.

L’apoptosi eccessiva causata dalle Radiazioni Elettromagnetiche artificiali è problematica per il sistema nervoso. Il sistema nervoso è molto sensibile agli effetti delle Radiazioni. Il cervello è più sensibile alle Radiazioni Elettromagnetiche rispetto agli altri organi perché ha un altissimo tasso metabolico e una grande richiesta di ossigeno, che lo rendono molto vulnerabile a disturbi del metabolismo energetico (1). Numerosi cambiamenti patologici possono verificarsi nel cervello a seguito della esposizione eccessiva alle Radiazioni come ad esempio danni strutturali, perturbazioni neurotrasmettitoriali (1, 3), alterazioni della attività elettrica e aumento della permeabilità della barriera ematoencefalica (2, 4). Quanto severamente un soggetto sia colpito dipende da frequenza, durata e intensità dell’esposizione alle Radiazioni (1, 3). Ognuno è o sarà, in qualche modo, influenzato negativamente dalle Radiazioni Elettromagnetiche artificiali. A causa della sempre crescente quantità di antenne e ripetitori della telefonia mobile installati dalle compagnie delle telecomunicazioni, Radiofrequenze e Radiazioni a Microonde sono quasi impossibili da evitare al giorno d’oggi e rappresentano una grave minaccia per la salute pubblica. Le cose andranno solo a peggiorare se non si interverrà per eliminare e ridurre, e non semplicemente per evitare, le sorgenti di Radiazioni artificiali.

“NO SAFE PLACE shattered lives, healthcare set to crash − you can’t fix this fast enough” – Una lettera di Olga Sheean al Sindaco di Vancouver Gregor Robertson sulla Ipersensibilità Elettromagnetica (EHS – Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity)

[NESSUN LUOGO SICURO IN CUI VIVERE…

Olga Sheean, una ex dipendente della Organizzazione Mondiale della Sanità a Ginevra ora residente a Vancouver, BC, ha scritto una lettera straordinariamente appassionata ed articolata a Gregor Robertson, Sindaco della città di Vancouver, riguardo alla Ipersensibilità Elettromagnetica (EHS) e ai pericoli della proliferazione del WiFi.

Anche grazie ai suoi trascorsi, Olga Sheean è una delle più preziose attiviste in ambito di EHS. E’ stata addirittura in grado di far accettare ad Orca Airways che i telefoni cellulari vengano spenti quando dei malati di Ipersensibilità Elettromagnetica viaggiano sugli aerei di quella compagnia.

La lettera in questione è un documento completo, che delinea gli effetti nocivi di dispositivi e infrastrutture Wireless in fase di lancio e promosse dal Comune di Vancouver. E’ davvero estremamente accurata e vale la pena leggerla.

I temi principali del documento sono i seguenti:

  • Ignorati, esclusi ed inabili – cittadini costretti a fuggire
  • Evidenza di effetti nocivi: fatti in breve
  • Dati scientifici contro pressioni politiche e disinformazione
  • Effetti fisici delle Radiazioni Elettromagnetiche
  • Sintomi principali della EHS
  • Importanti punti di riferimento sulla linea di confine dei Campi Elettromagnetici
  • Diritti umani e malefatte umane
  • Domande alle quali voi ed il governo dovete rispondere
  • Un assaggio di quello che verrà: il costo reale delle Radiazioni Elettromagnetiche
  • Gli scienziati chiedono misure più protettive, data crescente evidenza del rischio da Campi Elettromagnetici.

Ci teniamo a citare un paio di considerazioni importanti presenti nella lettera.

Facendo riferimento a ciò che la storia recente dovrebbe insegnarci, l’autrice dice:

“Un tempo…
… La Terra era piatta. Il fumo era buono per voi. Il Talidomide era favoloso nel risolvere le nausee mattutine. L’amianto consentiva un ottimo isolamento. L’energia nucleare era la strada da percorrere. Le colture di grano OGM erano una manna dal cielo per gli agricoltori di tutto il mondo. E gli oli idrogenati erano una scelta conveniente in termini di costo-beneficio. Adesso noi abbiamo WiFi e reti mobili, che ci connettono con tutti, ovunque, ogni secondo di ogni giorno…e creano nel nostro ambiente di vita una proliferazione di radiazioni pervasiva, virtualmente inevitabile, senza precedenti, non verificata, incontrollata ed in rapida crescita. Ma non preoccupatevi; il sindaco di Vancouver dice che è sicura!”

Facendo riferimento alle terribili condizioni di vita dei malati di Elettrosensibilità, i quali vedono negati i loro diritti umani fondamentali, dice:

“Sebbene l’essere esposti a radiazioni nocive senza il proprio consenso e al di là del proprio controllo sia decisamente una violazione di uno di diritti umani, è difficile stabilire esattamente quanti di quei diritti vengano violati. C’è il diritto alle pari opportunità, il diritto di avere mezzi di sussistenza, il diritto di accedere a tutti i servizi e comfort disponibili per i cittadini che non hanno la EHS, il diritto alla salute, il diritto di vivere in un ambiente sicuro, il diritto di scegliere se essere esposti a radiazioni nocive e forse anche il diritto di esistere, considerando i principali. Potrebbe anche essere considerata una negazione della nostra stessa umanità, data la nostra reazione naturale alle radiazioni e l’inevitabile punto di non ritorno dell’intolleranza del corpo per livelli sempre crescenti. Tutti noi abbiamo punti di non ritorno della intolleranza- … “

Buona lettura.]

July 2016/Luglio 2016

An urgent message for all humanity:

electromagnetic radiation is damaging our babies, brains, bodies and planet

The following letter (sent to the Mayor of Vancouver, Gregor Robertson, and the Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, on 15 June 2016) has generated an overwhelming response from people all over the world. Many of them have electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), but some of them are discovering this information for the first time and are alarmed by how much it has been distorted, downplayed and denied by those elected to protect our well-being. They have shared their own personal stories and some of them have also written to Robertson, as well as their own elected officials, expressing their concerns and calling for this issue to be urgently addressed.

The letter has gone viral, reaching thousands of people. It has been shared on social media, distributed on various networks, sent out in newsletters and its content re-purposed for other cities.

The information contained in this document applies to most developed countries, since Wi-Fi, cell phones and cordless phones are everywhere, saturating our environment with rapidly rising levels of radiation that’s affecting more and more people every day. I encourage you to share it as widely as you can, even if you are not personally (or knowingly) affected.

The more people I speak to about this, the more I (and they) realize that we’re all affected, in some way—some so severely that they can no longer function normally. I receive letters every day from those who are desperate for a solution and a safe place to live. I hear horror stories—a teenager committing suicide because she’s been forced to sit beside a Wi-Fi router at school, even though it makes her seriously ill; adults who have taken their own lives because there is nowhere for them to lead a normal life; and a 10-year-old boy who can no longer go to school as the Wi-Fi causes blinding headaches and makes him vomit. (For a list of symptoms of electromagnetic intolerance, see page 13.)

As much as 50% of the population in many developed countries will be affected by electromagnetic radiation by 2017.

The questions on pages 20 & 21 raise some key issues that politicians, decision-makers and Internet service-providers have an obligation to answer—but will be unable to, since the proliferation of electromagnetic radiation is now so vast and is escalating so rapidly that there is no way to measure, monitor or contain it.

As of 3 July 2016, I had not yet received a reply from Robertson or Trudeau, but I will be following up with them personally, sharing the many stories and messages I’ve received and alerting them to the growing public awareness of what’s really going on. Change will come as a result of your involvement. There is a tipping point for everything—your tolerance for the rising radiation, as well as the pressure we can collectively bring to bear on those tasked to protect our health, safety, human rights and natural environment.

We’re all in this together.

Spain: High Court of Madrid Ruling Recognizes “Electrosensitivity” as Grounds for Total Permanent Disability

[Altro articolo sulla importante recente sentenza spagnola che ha riconosciuto una disabilità totale e permanente ad un malato di Elettrosensibilità.]

4 August 2016 – “mieuxprevenir.blogspot.it”, by 

UPDATE 29 August 2016:   An auto-translation of the legal decision in the High Court of Madrid, which found in favor of an EHS sufferer, an ex-employee at Ericsson, is included in a post published on Dave Ashton’s blog, “Being Electrosensitive”:
“Spain – EHS Legally Recognised”.

A statement considers for first time “electrosensitivity” as grounds for total permanent disability
by Patricia Esteban, noticias.juridicas.com,

3 August 2016
[Note:  Google translation – we corrected the grammar only in the sub-headings and where very evident.  We are seeking a person fluent in English and Spanish to provide a better translation of this article.]A statement considers first the “electrosensitivity” as grounds for total permanent disability

A recent ruling by the High Court of Madrid, No. 588/2016 dated 6 July 2016 (rapporteur Mr. Miguel Moreiras Cabellero) has recognized for the first time a situation of total permanent disability for the exercise of the profession of a telecommunications engineer suffering from a rare syndrome, “electrosensitivity syndrome (EHS)”, which prevents him from working in environments with electromagnetic fields. It does not recognize, however, an absolute permanent disability.

This little known syndrome causes a number of symptoms (headaches, sleep disorders or muscle aches, even aggressive), now recognized for justice as incapacitating, whose origin is exposure to electromagnetic fields.The engineer suffering from this syndrome had appealed the sentence in supplication Instance Labour Court No 11 of Madrid, which dismissed his petition and acquitted the National Institute of Social Security (INSS), which had denied the economic benefit.

Now the Supreme Court of Madrid has given reason: his illness prevents him from working as an engineer in telecommunications, but believes that he can work in environments that do not present electromagnetic pollution. But, we wonder, what office currently has no wifi?

He was denied a disability benefit

The appellant, who worked in a known technology multinational, had initiated a sick leave for temporary disability due to common illnesses, and subsequently record of permanent disability.

An initial medical reported that “it is not possible to establish definitive functional limitations electrosensitivity syndrome” and proposed no qualification of the worker as permanently disabled by not presenting anatomical or functional reductions that reduce or remove his working capacity.

In view of these reports, the INSS issued a resolution dated June 6, 2014, by which it remembered deny the actor disability benefits, not reach the injuries suffered by a sufficient degree of reduced working capacity, for constituting a permanent disability.

The Social Court No 11 of Madrid dismissed the claim, considering that his case could not be considered as “absolute permanent disability” requested by the actor.

The key to the favorable judgment: a report of public health

The applicant had in his favor with an expert report Hospital of Guadalajara, in which the patient’s symptoms were described to work “in the presence of this exposure to electromagnetic fields”. Symptoms such as headache, tinnitus, insomnia and other disorders such as mood changes, nervousness, irritability or aggression, etc., that “improved by moving away from their exposure.”

Reducing exposure to electromagnetic pollution 

The court finds that “total permanent disability of the claimant for his usual profession of Telecommunications Engineer because of chemical sensitivity that have or electromagnetic hypersensitivity the Spanish Ministry of Health has called in its version of the International Classification syndrome is reasonably accredited ICD-9-CM disease within the group of non-specific allergies. ”

As stated in the contested judgment, the appellant is required by his profession to work in sensitive environments, being in constant daily contact with computers in an environment where there are electromagnetic fields, radio frequency wireless and mobile connections.

Talking by mobile caused tinnitus  

This syndrome, according clarifies the court in its judgment, is an allergy that causes in those who suffer loss induced tolerance, for most recurrent outbreaks, “the radio pollution, cordless phones, mobile phone antennas, WIFI, requiring who affects to minimize their exposure in the home and work environments and avoid places with electromagnetic pollution “.

Unable to work as ‘teleco’

Therefore, the court finds that he is unable to work at his workplace (a multinational dedicated to providing telecommunications equipment and solutions).

Proved circumstances, lead, continued the judge, “a reasonable decision to declare the applicant in a situation of total permanent disability for his usual profession of Telecommunications Engineer derived from common illness entitled to receive the corresponding financial benefit under the provisions Article 137.4 of the General Social Security Law. ”

“White zones”

The court, however, considers that it can not appreciate a complete inability, because although the plaintiff is unable to work in environments with electromagnetic pollution, this situation does not occur in all sorts of places, so he can work in so-called unpolluted “white zones”.

Furthermore, with regard to multiple chemical sensitivity that also suffers syndrome, as discussed in the Background of Fourth Law of the judgment of the Court, ” it is not possible to establish permanent sequelae , ” and this lack of permanent limitations prevents estimate its claim to be declared in absolute permanent disability pursuant to the provisions of article 136.1 of the General Social Security Law.

Pioneer judgment

Recognition of little known syndromes as a cause of work disability has in recent years battle in court. Conditions that cause a high impact on people who have it, and do not seem to receive the public attention it requires.

The case of telecommunications engineer at the High Court of Madrid has recognized incapacity for suffering electrosensitivity is relevant to be the first time that this condition is considered as the main cause of disability.

Previously, courts had recognized, but associated with other syndromes (chronic fatigue, environmental sensitivity ..). Thus, for example, Case 213/2016 the Supreme Court of Castilla y Leon dated April 6, 2016 or judgment of the Supreme Court 4675/2014 Catalonia dated June 27, 2014.

The case of “fibromyalgia”

Although this condition was included in the International Classification of Diseases by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1991, it has long been considered as “sham” and not a real disease.

The most recent case law, especially in Catalonia (Judgments TSJ Catalonia June 23, 2014, to February 24, 2015, to June 5, 2015, or November 3, 2015) has begun to recognize the importance of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome as a cause of declaration of incapacity for work.

In these judgments underlying the idea that the disability must be understood as the loss of capacity for serious anatomical or functional reductions that reduce or nullify the labor capacity, and without that would inhibit the rating the possibility of recovery of working capacity when it present as uncertain or very long term.

Modern life is killing our children: Cancer rate in young people up 40 per cent in 16 years

[Una nuova analisi di statistiche del Governo Britannico effettuata dai ricercatori della organizzazione di beneficenza “Children with Cancer UK” ha rilevato che il numero di giovani con diagnosi di cancro  è aumentato del 40 per cento negli ultimi 16 anni, e senza dubbio fattori ambientali sono da ritenersi responsabili.
Tra questi, ci sono i Campi Elettromagnetici.]

3 September 2016 – “The Telegraph”/Science, by 

A polluted London road 
Air pollution, obesity and a rise in electrical and magnetic fields is blamed for the surge in childhood cancer

Modern life is killing children with the number of youngsters diagnosed with cancer rising 40 per cent in the past 16 years because of air pollution, pesticides, poor diets and radiation, scientists have warned.
New analysis of government statistics by researchers at the charity Children with Cancer UK found that there are now 1,300 more cancer cases a year compared with 1998, the first time all data sets were published.

The rise is most apparent in teenagers and young adults aged between 15 and 24, where the incident rate has risen from around 10 cases in 100,000 to nearly 16.

Researchers say that although some of the rise can be explained by improvements in cancer diagnoses and more screening, the majority is probably caused by environmental factors.

Dr Denis Henshaw, Professor of Human Radiation Effects at Bristol University, the scientific adviser for Children with Cancer UK, said air pollution was by far the biggest culprit, accounting for around 40 per cent of the rise, but other elements of modern lifestyles are also to blame.

Among these are obesity, pesticides and solvents inhaled during pregnancy, circadian rhythm disruption through too much bright light at night, radiation from x-rays and CT scans, smoking during and after pregnancy, magnetic fields from power lines,  gadgets in homes, and potentially,  radiation from mobile phones.

“When you look at cancers such as childhood leukaemia there is no doubt that environmental factors are playing a big role,” said Dr Henshaw. “We were shocked to see the figures, and it’s modern lifestyle I’m afraid.

“Many items on the list of environmental causes are now known to be carcinogenic, such as air pollution and pesticides and solvents. There has been good research to suggest a mother’s diet can damage DNA in cord blood. Light at night we know is very disruptive for the body, which is why shift workers have such bad health.

“Burnt barbecues, the electric fields of power lines, the electricity supply in your home. Hairdryers. It’s all of these things coming together, and it seems to be teenagers and young people that are most affected.

“What’s worrying is it is very hard to avoid a lot of these things. How can you avoid air pollution? It sometimes feels like we are fighting a losing battle.”

More than 4,000 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every year in Britain, and cancer is the leading cause of death in children aged one to 14.

Diagnoses of colon cancer among children and young people has risen 200 per cent since 1998, while thyroid cancer has doubled. Ovarian and cervical cancers have also risen by 70 per cent and 50 per cent respectively.

The charity estimates that the rise in cases now costs the NHS an extra £130 million a year compared with 16 years ago.

But experts believe many cancers could be prevented with lifestyle changes such as allowing children to attend nursery to boost their immune system, not painting children’s rooms with oil-based paints, avoiding night shift work and processed meats in pregnancy.

The figures were released ahead of the Children with Cancer UK conference which is taking place in London this week.

Other cancer experts said they had also noticed a rise in cancer diagnoses but warned it was too early to draw firm conclusions on the causes.

Nicola Smith, Cancer Research UK’s senior health information officer, said: “Any rise in childhood cancers is worrying but it’s important to remember that less than one per cent of cancer cases in the UK occur in children.

“It’s not yet clear exactly what causes cancer in childhood and research has not shown a link with environmental factors like air pollution and diet during pregnancy. There are some factors which can increase the risk of childhood cancer like inherited genetic conditions and exposure to radiation – but these are usually not avoidable and no one should feel blamed for a child getting cancer.

“Evidence has shown that there are lots of things adults can do to reduce cancer risk and it’s always a good idea to set up healthy habits as a family, like eating healthily, being active and enjoying the sun safely.”

Kate Lee, chief executive of children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent, said that a child cancer diagnosis places a huge emotional and financial burden on the whole family.

“Over the last year CLIC Sargent provided support for more than 7,100 families, more than ever before, but we know that we can still only reach two out of three of those children and young people diagnosed with cancer,” she added.

“As more young cancer patients are diagnosed every year, we know each of those families will need support and are working hard to one day be able to provide those services for every young patient.”

Despite the increase, around 80 per cent of child cancer patients now survive for at least five years. But the aggressive treatments they have as children can have a major impact on their future health, even if they survive.

Tomorrow, Children with Cancer UK launches a five-point plan calling on the Government and the science and medical community to ensure that all children diagnosed with cancer in the UK have access to precision medicine by 2020.

Accommodation Ideas for Electromagnetic Sensitivity

[Il Job Accommodation Network (JAN) negli Stati Uniti è un leader nella assistenza tecnica gratuita e riservata in merito a questioni lavorative e problemi occupazionali in caso di disabilità.
E’ un referente dell’O.D.E.P., Office of Disability Employment Policy, del Dipartimento del Lavoro degli Stati Uniti (U.S. Department of Labor).
Sul suo sito ufficiale esiste una sezione dedicata al problema della Elettrosensibilità.
Nonostante la esposizione dei concetti sia a tratti un po’ imprecisa, è significativo il fatto che venga prestata attenzione alla malattia e alla tutela dei malati, che spesso purtroppo nel nostro paese sono costretti a rinunciare alla attività lavorativa per l’impossibilità di permanere a lungo in ambienti inquinati da Campi Elettromagnetici e, nel caso dei soggetti sia elettro- che chemio-sensibili, da sostanze chimiche.]

From “JAN” (Job Accomodation Network) website (http://askjan.org/):

jan-logo

There are people who report a sensitivity to electromagnetic sensitivity. Although it has been difficult for the environmental health and medical communities to define, individuals with electromagnetic sensitivity report various symptoms including but not limited to fatigue, weakness, neurological issues, immunological issues, gastrointestinal issues, increased irritability, lack of ability to think clearly and quickly, sleep disturbance, overall malaise, and anxiety.

Despite the medical community’s difficulty in defining electromagnetic sensitivity, individuals with the condition may benefit from job accommodations. The following is a quick overview of some of the accommodations that might be useful. To discuss an accommodation situation with a consultant, contact JAN directly.

Accommodation ideas for individuals with electromagnetic sensitivity:

  • Allow communication via typewriter or handwritten notes rather than via computer or cover the computer with Plexiglas or other shielding material
  • Provide headset/handset extenders or alternate headsets to lengthen the distance between devices that trigger symptoms and the employee’s body
  • Change the employee’s shift to allow for less exposure to others’ devices
  • Relocate workplace away from areas where symptoms are triggered.  This may include limiting certain types of devices in the vicinity of the employee’s workstation
  • Allow telework  (Note: regarding work at home, unless the employee wants to work at home, other options should be explored first to keep the employee in the workplace)
  • Allow the employee to meet with others in areas where triggers are minimized or allow remote access to meetings or activities that must take place in areas that trigger symptoms.
  • Provide wired telephones and network connections
  • Provide building-wide and/or workspace shielding of equipment and devices, for example add filters to fluorescent lights and tape electrical cords
  • Individuals with electrical sensitivity may also experience limitations from fragrance sensitivity and/or photosensitivity

Campaigner wants Wifi in schools banned due to health concerns

11 August 2016 – “Braintree & Witham Times”, by Robbie Bryson, Trainee Reporter

DANGER: Martin Kingsbury wants Wifi in schools to be banned
DANGER: Martin Kingsbury wants Wifi in schools to be banned

A BUSINESSMAN is on a mission to make people aware of an invisible health danger.

Martin Kingsbury, from Braintree, wants Wifi to be banned in schools up and down the country, to prevent harm being caused by electromagnetic radiation.

He said: “Someone came to me three years ago and told me about it. At first I thought it was another scare story.

“Then I spent a bit of time and did a bit of research. I started to see things that could not be disputed.

“The man made radiation has increased hundreds of times in the last thirty years.”

Many claim that exposure to electromagnetic radiation can cause people to develop Electro-Hypersensitivity – symptoms can include dizziness, headaches and sleep disturbance.

Mr Kingsbury, who owns Solar Power GB Ltd, is a member of Geovital Academy UK and got involved with the worldwide No Wifi in Schools campaign on July 31 by distributing posters across the district.

Countries such as Israel and France have already introduced Wi-Fi bands around children of a young age and Mr Kingsbury wants to see the UK government take a strong stance against electromagnetic radiation.

Mr Kingsbury said: “The problem is no one knows the information is out there.

“People need to be aware of the problems and then it is up to them what they do. But at least then they are given the opportunity to make small changes.

“I would like to see all Wifi to be removed from schools and people made aware of the harmful effects from modern technology – for people with children it is so important.”

Cell Towers and Cellphones. Microwave Radiation, Electromagnetic Pollution, Impacts on Human Health

10 August 2016 – “Global Research”, by Joachim Hagopian

cellphone-620

“Electromagnetic pollution may be the most significant form of pollution human activity has produced this century, all the more dangerous because it is invisible and insensible.” — Andrew Weil, MD, bestselling author

We live in the information age when we’re bombarded every single day with incoming data to process and interpret whether it’s true or not. Because the government and mainstream media have an agenda of false narratives and disinformation propaganda to willfully keep people confused in the dark, the American public is starved for the truth and in record numbers has sought it from alternative media outlets on the World Wide Web.

To circumvent people from grasping the full implications of the ruling elite’s control agenda, hundreds of government shills and internet trolls have been deployed, saturating the net with the expressed purpose of muddying the waters, creating disinfo fog of war to obscure, bury and withhold vital information and knowledge from being accessed and fully grasped by the global masses. Additionally, the fast track pathway to global governance – the TPP and TTIP agreements – are geared to seal off internet flow of lifesaving information that could increase global awareness and coalesce into worldwide resistance and opposition to New World Order tyranny.

CIA invented labels from nearly a half century ago like “conspiracy theory” and its recent mutations like “tin foil hat” and fringe element fanatics have methodically conditioned the public to discard and categorically deny the negative truth that exposes government perpetrators’ treasonous betrayal of American citizens as well as Empire’s global transgressions – especially since 9/11.

In actuality a conspiracy theorist is one who questions the statements of known liars. Speaking of known liars, George W’s admonition to disregard conspiracy theories was just the post-9/11 beginning to squelch the truth that makes him a guilty murderous war criminal of his own people. The same cover-up followed the inside job of the JFK assassination that his daddy played a part in, just like his daddy’s daddy financed Hitler. Unfortunately there’s nothing new about the US government murdering presidents who threaten status quo corruption as well as exterminating national populations to gain oppressive authoritarian control. Democide is the killing of citizens by its own government. Six times more victims in the last century died from democide than fighting in all the century’s wars combined that include humanity’s two bloodiest ones on record. History repeats as the federal government’s currently waging a not so secret war against the American people.

Chief among its formidable lethal arsenal is the feds’ war to control our minds through propaganda, having been crafted and honed now for over a century. Shaping public opinion and perception of reality through any and all means necessary involves deceitful weapons of mass destruction manifesting 24/7 through insidious applications of social engineering, various CIA mind control techniques delivered by mass media propaganda, corporate controlled mass consumerism, and six oligarch owned and operated mega-media corporations controlling the outflow of news and information.

This centralized global spigot spews out materialistic values, warped, distorted messages, dogma and false truths spoon fed globally for mass consumption as the not so covert means to manipulate, brainwash and control the human population. Twenty-first century technology has shrunken our planet into a global village of mass consumers to be pliably manipulated and controlled. This presentation will outline how a sinister globalist agenda is using the incredibly powerful telecom industry as yet another WMD for mass mind control, soft kill eugenics and, when deemed most advantageous, a convenient fast kill, genocidal method for culling the human herd.

Over the last quarter century, cell phones have all but replaced the conventional landline telephone system. 91% of Americans from adolescent to adult ages utilize cellphones as their primary means of spoken word communication, often including texting and other online interactive options as well.

Much has been written about the paradoxical effect that wireless cellphones and tablets offer as convenient multimodal transmitters that both instantly expand our opportunity to interact with fellow humans within a readily accessible cyber-world while simultaneously alienating us from real time, face-to-face, eye-to-eye communication and real world human connection. Today a quick glance observation at any public setting – airports, libraries, doctors’ offices – and the vast majority of people are seen busily interacting with their push button machines far more frequently than direct live conversation with even accompanying friends and family. Like lab rats compulsively pushing levers, people habitually check their cellphones over a hundred times a day. Hi-tech toy gadgetry has become the singular, most addictive device known to modern man. IPhones and Wi-Fi devices control how we increasingly preoccupy our daily waking hours more so than any other modern invention since the radio-television era.

For the last couple decades, countless scientific studies have been warning us of the serious damage being done to our brains and bodies as a consequence of our excessive cellphone habits. The radiation literally fries our neurons, alters our DNA with fractured strand breaks, and causes rising rates of brain cancer, tumors and associated other life threatening diseases. A new study from the British Medical Journal led by Dr. Enrique Navarro concludes that living near cell towers inhibits brain functioning, diminishes memory, disrupts the normal sleep cycle and causes widespread irritability. And an analytical review of all research conducted a half dozen years ago determined that 80% of all studies have determined that a direct correlation does exist between tower proximity and adverse symptoms, tumors and cancer.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the governmental agency that regulates the telecommunications industry, has purposely maintained dangerously high tolerance for the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) – 1.6 watts per kilogram, a radiation level standard that’s literally killing people. Paid off with bribes by the largest telecom giants, the FCC has refused to accurately readjust to lowering its hazardous threshold to save lives despite the preponderance of research showing that it would. Instead at a public meeting last month at the FCC headquarters, the federal agency that’s supposed to protect public safety showed its colors shutting down any dissenting voice. Likewise, Washington has chosen to protect the multibillion dollar industry by historically refusing to fund research that might otherwise decisively reveal the truth and thus hinder telecom growth. The FCC allows the industry to hire its own bogus pseudo-scientists to fudge its own inconclusive data to falsely claim cellphone use poses no serious threat to human health.

Just as the FDA is a bought and paid for Big Parma whore intentionally allowing damaging drugs on the market without adequate testing, and the EPA looks the other way when giant corps. like Monsanto spread deadly contaminants throughout our air, soil and water supply, corruption across all federal and state levels could care less about public health and safety, but instead blindly support transnational killers to ensure maximum profits are achieved at horrific human cost. These across the board policies are consistent with how the US government operates as a corrupt oligarchy acting on behalf of Fortune 500’s special interests – not the people’s, knowing a growing number of Americans are becoming sick, suffering and dying as a result of a government that’s turned its back on its citizens. The cold hard facts clearly show that Washington is a fascist crime cabal at war with its own people, now eliminating us through slow death, soft kill methods that only pad telecom/Monsanto/Big Pharma/health industry profits.

True to form, the co-opted FDA, EPA, World Health Organization (WHO) and American Cancer Society have all gone public claiming that radiofrequency (RF) radiation from cellphones and cell towers carry no determined health effects. That said, in 2011 even the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) conceded to classifying radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as “a possible carcinogento humans.” Then last October another recent study coordinated by IARC examined over 300,000 nuclear workers from US, UK and France and found even low level radiation exposure over time increases the risk of cancer.

But from the American Cancer Institute’s own website, it states that non-ionized radiation from cell towers and cellphones “do not directly damage the DNA inside cells.” This is a blatant lie. Two decades ago pioneering scientist Dr. Narendra Pal Singh and Dr. Henry Lai empirically demonstrated that DNA single and double strand damage does occur at only 2.45 GHz radiation, a rate of one fifth the level producing previously known toxic biological effects and well below the so called FCC regulated “safe” levels that cellphones emit. Lai and Singh’s valuable research supports the widely accepted (amongst honest observers) the very logical conclusion that cumulative DNA damage occurs over time from prolonged use of cellphones. Two years ago a peer review of 80 studies found that 92% showed that non-ionized radiation from cellphones do damage DNA. Yet the Cancer Institute chooses to continue living the lie.

Megras and Xenos found that five generations of mice exposed to extremely low RF rates from .168 to 1.053 microwatts per square centimeter sustained irreversible sterility. These relative low exposure amounts are equivalent to living near a cellular tower. Thus humans living, attending school and working so close to towers are being dangerously radiated, yet the current FCC safe standard remains at 579 microwatts per square centimeter, a full 500 times higher than what causes sterilization in mice. In a related study, males who carry cellphones on belt clips or in their pants pocket have a measured sperm count 30% lower than men who don’t. The globalist overpopulation cheerleaders wouldn’t have it any other way.

Sweeping all this established hard evidence under the carpet just like the tobacco industry perpetrated for decades has been but a temporary fix strategy that buys more time to sell more wireless products and build thousands of more towers. But just over two months ago for the first time in history even a US federal study under the National Institutes of Health confirmed what the prevailing body of honest researchers have indicated all along – that radiation emitted from chronic use of cellphones does in fact lead to rising cancer rates. The former head of NIH’s National Toxicology Program (NTP) that performed the research study states that the findings between radiation exposure and rare forms of brain and heart cancers are definitely causally-connected. This NTP research is the most comprehensive and robust long term (2 years) investigation measuring varying exposure levels of radiofrequencies on rats ever conducted. But this study applies only to simulated radiation emitted from chronic cellphone use only, not exposure to the radiofrequency waves dangerously released from massive cell towers at close distance nor other wireless devices commonly found in both the home and workplace.

Cellphone and cell tower radiation also cause lowered immune systems and alter hormonal levels, adding further complications posing a serious detriment to human health. Still other recent studies from earlier this year for the first time are indicating that certain individuals experience physical pain accompanied by physiological bodily changes from tower signals at even low, regular levels. This finding validates the very real existence of a growing population of about 5% around the world who may be especially sensitive to wireless radiation. Their medical condition known as electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) typically afflicts them with physical pain, headaches, nosebleeds, fatigue, insomnia, anxiety. Previously many uninformed and/or biased medical practitioners automatically dismissed individuals suffering from EHS as hypochondriacs. Lawsuits have generally ruled against those claiming EHS, citing medical literature that concludes it’s merely a psychosomatic illness not caused by electromagnetic radiation. However, last August a French court ruled in favor of a victim complainant. EHS appears to be following the same path that Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Syndrome and Fibromyalgia Syndrome have undergone in their gradual acceptance within the medical community.

In order to provide service to millions of customers globally, cellphone companies have constructed cell towers and antenna towers across an entire overlapping region since the 360 degree radius of each tower only extends less than 25 miles. That’s why thousands into the millions of towers have been springing up around the globe, especially in densely populated areas where cell phones are at peak use. The trade industry website WirelessEstimator.com lists an updated total amongst the top 121 telecom companies of118,173 towers in the US. However, the same site maintains that the tower count as of 2009 that includes rooftop antenna transmitters and cell towers number 247,081, further admitting that there is no accurate count. Yet another site antennaesearch.com has an updated US tally of 612,477, and 2,456,899 with wireless rooftop antennas included. Thus, the guesstimated range is enormously wide and for all intents and purposes unknown, but rapidly growing daily around the world.

Meanwhile, a wireless news site article from a year ago stated that due to exponential consumer demand for mobile data, Cisco estimates that by 2019 US mobile traffic will soar to 7 times its 2015 rate. This foretells a far denser concentration of yet even more harmful towers erected in ever-closer proximity to America’s vast sprawling urban population, typically impacting and endangering America’s youth in schools, adults in office buildings and families living in multistory apartment complexes.

In view of thousands of towers built next to or even on school grounds, a growing body of research on children and pregnant mothers is also producing extremely alarming results. Many public schools and universities are also being given cash bribe incentives to permit towers on their premises. Though some local parent and community advocacy groups are beginning to fight back, many education officials are choosing money over their own young people’s health and well-being. Meanwhile, it’s been shown that children absorb twice as much cell phone and tower radiation in the brain, up to three times in the hypothalamus and hippocampus regions, and their blood brain barrier leaks at the smallest traces of radiation. And incredibly kids’ bone marrow takes in ten times the amount of harmful RF waves as adults.

Spiked rates of electromagnetic pollution and its devastatingly harmful effects on human health is a pandemic train wreck currently exploding across the USA and the entire world. And as a direct consequence of chronic, indiscriminate use over the last 25 years, rare forms of brain cancer are now beginning to skyrocket. Predatory telecom giants and bribed governments are exploiting the fact that this weapon of mass destruction cannot be felt as an odorless, tasteless, silent, invisible killer.

All of this is bad enough news, dumbing down citizens and making us ill at national levels, but it’s just now becoming more widely known that a far more diabolical plan is presently in place that is zapping Americans with deadlier levels of radiation from cell towers than before. The most appalling realization is these dangerously higher levels of radiation emanating from weaponized cell towers have absolutely nothing to do with cell phone transmission, but everything to do with democide. They prove that the US government has shifted its soft kill eugenics plan to a faster hard-boil roast of the American population.

A former senior scientist from DARPA, the US deep state black ops research lab that channels all advanced technologies into military WMD’s, recently went public alerting fellow Americans that the federal government is misusing lethal cell tower transmissions as an “act of terrorism” against the US population. With a PhD from Princeton in computational physics and nearly three years at the DARPA Los Alamos National Laboratory, Dr. Paul Batcho is a more than credible source who knows what he’s talking about. When he first began noticing high powered radiation radiating from cell towers in his home in St. Petersburg and surrounding areas of central Florida and Tampa, he followed standard protocol contacting his previous employer DARPA along with DHS, informing them that he believes that the cell towers present a “terrorist” threat. After his repeated attempts to alert authorities drew no response, Batcho contacted longtime activist-writer Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show. The scientist has written:

These transmissions will cause harmful health affects in the form of enhanced microwave radiation illness. It is imperative that these frequency bands be measured and verified by an official source. These frequency bands do not exist naturally, and there is a technology targeting individuals. The verified measurement and existence of these RF band transmissions constitutes a terrorist act.

The FCC officially limits cell towers to 400 watts of energy output for cell phone data transfer. However, it’s been reported that mammoth sized cables leading into a typical cell phone tower is capable of emitting far greater power, especially when equipped with amplifiers. This makes the enormous level of microwave radiation each tower can project a potential mega-death weapon. And this is the alarm that Paul Batcho is railing against. The death ray machine that each tower represents can generate enough juice to literally cook every human within its city limits. So if the elitist powerbrokers in control plant these WMD’s strategically and so densely across America happen to desire the US population dead, or perhaps under the guise of an invading foreign enemy on American soil, these tower transmitters could conceivably eliminate the entire living population with several million towers at full wattage throttle.

‘Hearing, eyesight, body functions, memory – all fading. Am I disappearing?’ An impassioned article by Toni Turner

[via Bürgerwelle e.V.]

“www.teamaroundthechild.com”

masts80“I lay floating in a hot salt water bath, head back and salty tears falling into the water. The crushing pain in my head is exhausting. I’m begging God to let me live.

“My hearing is fading. My eyesight is fading. My body functions are fading. My memory is fading. I feel like I am disappearing. This is the tenth night of the disappearing act.

“Ten days ago I had thought I had a handle on this invisible force. I really thought I’d been so careful. Yet, there in the meeting room I again felt a searing pain in my head. The crushing in my temples increased over the next two days.”

Fortunately Lynn Attwood, 55, is now one of the luckier ones. She researched the nose bleeds, the crushing headaches, nausea and dizziness and found ES-UK, a charity established to help people with electrical sensitivity (ES).

Anyone can develop the condition, including children. Surveys suggest 30% of people are slightly allergic to electromagnetic frequencies, usually without knowing it, 3% moderately, and under 1% severely. Numbers for long-term effects are not yet known. Nor is it known whether today’s ES sufferers are the canaries at the sharp end of the affect which could in future be detrimental to most of the population’s health.

ES is caused by being exposed to electromagnetic radiation. It has been known as an illness since the Russians used it against an American Embassy in the Cold War. The Russians now protect their population from it. This illness was then documented in industries such as radio and telecommunications when workers were irradiated, then later in cases where there had been badly installed electrical wiring and electrical appliances.

More recently the incidence of the condition has proliferated as we have been exposed to 1000 times the level of electromagnetic fields than we were 10 years ago. The wireless-way-of-life arrived and with it illness. First came mobiles and telephone masts, then wifi for computers, doorbells and baby alarms, to name but a few.

Diagnostic tests such as cerebral blood profusion scans, heart rate variability and molecular markers show that ES is the body’s physical reaction to EM exposure.

Now Britain is on the cusp of a new wave of electromagnetic pollution, the pulsating “smart” meters wireless revolution. It is to be delivered by our utility services such as gas, electricity and water at an estimated cost of, wait for it, of £11 billion pounds. Just think – half the estimated cost of renewing Trident will be added to our utility bills while the unknown cost to NHS for biological damage to the nation’s health is impossible to estimate.

It sounds bizarre, yet it is true that none of this burgeoning technology or its consequential energy fields were ever tested on humans before they were introduced. To make matters worse the UK government refuses to take into account the recent revolution in biological understanding, which now informs leading scientists in the field, that humans are indeed being seriously damaged by low level non-thermal radiation such as wifi.

Ask the UK government about this threat to our health and you will receive a quote saying it follows the ICNIRP’s safety guidelines. But a closer look reveals that any knowledgeable expert in the biological field knows that this safety limit, which only detects whether a body is being burnt by this radiation, is totally outdated by our new biological understanding of how our bodies work.

Biologists are now only too aware that we humans are brilliantly balanced electrochemical beings. Our every cell wall can be damaged by low level radiation breaking down its membranes and leaking calcium into our cells, causing havoc. Every organ in our body operates through exact finely targeted electrical impulses or messengers, which can be distorted and interfered by low level electromagnetic fields passing straight through walls and buildings into our bodies.

ES-UK offers sufferers practical advice and education and fights the up-hill battle to inform the public, politicians and relevant bodies about the biological dangers of EM radiation. This growing charity operates in the face of millions of pounds being spent by the enormous telecommunications industry as it attempts to override what it considers any negative scientific findings.

Fortunately groups like ES-UK are finally beginning to turn things around. Current scientific consensus accepts that long-term low-level EM exposure is harmful and that some people are more sensitive to it than others.

The World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer now classifies powerlines and radio frequency radiation as class 2B possible cancer agents. Further, a growing body of scientists now say they should be classed as a 2A probable, or even class 1 certain.

The UK safety limit is also considered obsolete by other countries and the European Parliament has asked all member states to follow the precautionary principle and reduce their citizens’ exposure to EMFs. In response most countries in Europe have a more up-to-date safety level than the UK. The UK government has ignored this advice and gone on full speed to promote our wireless-world.

In Sweden ES is treated as a functional disability and sufferers can get grants to shield their homes from EM radiation. There are mobile phone-free zones in Stockholm and Salzburg public transport systems. Other countries such as Australia, France, Germany and Spain have recognised individual ES cases through disability awards, while Canada and Russia have medical centres specialising in ES. France has gone so far as to legislate to take Wifi out of nursery schools and for wifi to be turned off when not in use in other schools.

Why does our government continually follow its outdated approach to public health? We watched for decades as experts warned about the harm from lead in petrol, more decades as they warned about asbestos and mad cows disease before safety measure were taken to protect the public. ES-UK and many others wonder if industry lobbying, along with the government’s windfall of capital from leasing wavelengths, means that ministers turn a blind eye to what they don’t want to know.

Hundreds of reputable peer-reviewed studies show low level electromagnetic radiation is also likely to be implicated in increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease, brain tumours, cancer, cardiovascular effects, DNA damage, depression, fertility problems, leukaemia and miscarriages.

Somerset GP and ES-UK trustee, Dr Andrew Tresidder is convinced ES is under-recognised as GPs just do not know about this illness. He explains “A number of my patients have symptoms and illnesses that have been caused by exposure to electromagnetic fields, and which have been relieved by avoidance of the same fields.”

ES is usually a progressive condition and over time the sufferer may become sensitive to more devices and frequencies and their reactions may increase in severity.

Meanwhile, new research by the ES-UK has found that a third (33%) of Brits sleep with their mobile phone (which constantly sends out waves of radiation to stay in contact with the closest phone mast) near their bed and 33% also use their smart phone as an alarm clock without turning it to airplane mode.

Possibly the last word should go to Lynn Attwood who says that despite taking note of her body’s early warning system and avoiding exposure she still sometimes gets tricked into thinking somewhere is safe when it is not. She gets blasted and knocked out again from this electromagnetic poison.

No one, even the telecommunications industry or the UK government, will deny that the amount of electromagnetic pollution we are all living amongst is exponentially increasing every single day – far beyond a level any humans have ever experienced.

With that thought in mind Lynn warns,

“I’m just one of the canaries in the coal mine. The cumulative effect is coming your way soon.”

LOCANDINE INFORMATIVE “Dai voce al tuo cervello!”

Agosto 2016 – “Comitato Lecce Via Cavo”, Lecce

ElettrosensibiliImportante PATROCINIO della FEDERAZIONE ITALIANA MEDICI PEDIATRI (FIMP), Sezione di Lecce, per la campagna informativa sui POSSIBILI DANNI ALLA SALUTE LEGATI ALL’USO DI CELLULARI, CORDLESS, TABLET, WIFI.

Prevista la massima diffusione delle LOCANDINE INFORMATIVE attraverso l’affissione negli AMBULATORI PEDIATRICI presenti sul territorio.

L’iniziativa nasce dalla collaborazione tra COMITATO “LECCE VIA CAVO”, CODACONS, CODICI, CSV SALENTO e ASSOCIAZIONE ITALIANA ELETTROSENSIBILI ed a Giugno 2016 aveva già avuto il patrocinio anche dell’ ORDINE DEI FARMACISTI della Provincia di Lecce, con diffusione nelle farmacie, studi medici ed esercizi commerciali.

La locandina suggerisce alcuni COMPORTAMENTI PER RIDURRE LA PROPRIA ESPOSIZIONE ALLE RADIOFREQUENZE, tra cui: evitare lunghe chiamate con il cellulare, spegnere il wifi quando non è in uso (specie la notte), usare linee cablate a casa o sul lavoro;
PARTICOLARE ATTENZIONE ALLA PROTEZIONE DEI BAMBINI, che sono più vulnerabili: consigliato RIDURRE la loro esposizione alle radiazioni wireless (CELLULARI, CORDLESS, TABLET, WIFI) e PROMUOVERE RETI CABLATE NELLE SCUOLE al posto delle antenne wifi.

Sulla locandina campeggia la scritta “Dai voce al tuo cervello”, slogan scelto dopo che le radiofrequenze utilizzate dalla tecnologia senza fili sono state classificate nel 2011, dall’Agenzia Internazionale per la Ricerca sul Cancro (IARC) dell’Organizzazione Mondiale per la Salute (OMS), come “possibile cancerogeno per l’uomo”.
Da allora sono emerse nuove evidenze scientifiche che correlano l’esposizione alle radiofrequenze con l’insorgenza di tumori maligni al cervello, disordini neurologici , danni al dna, diminuzione dell’udito, sintomi di elettrosensibilità, alterazioni del ritmo cardiaco, insonnia, cali di memoria, disturbi cognitivi.

‘My electro-sensitivity hell’

6 August 2016 – “The Kerryman”

Could our growing dependence on technologies utilising higher and higher frequency radiowaves and electromagnetic fields (EMF) to transmit information be damaging our health?

Could our growing dependence on technologies utilising higher and higher frequency radiowaves and electromagnetic fields (EMF) to transmit information be damaging our health?

There’s at least one section of our community not joining in the frantic clamour for high-speed broadband at present. It’s not that they don’t want the economy to grow and public services to benefit from faster internet connections.

It’s just that the cost to their health of all this rapidly-proliferating telecommunications and electrical technology is already too great a price to pay.

Although not yet a medically-recognised condition, an estimated one per cent of the population believe they suffer from Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS or ES).

Stinging eyes, all-encompassing fatigue and debilitating sensations clouding the head are among the most common symptoms reported by self-professed EHS sufferers.

And their symptoms are getting worse. At nearly 80, Rathmore woman Delia O’Brien has witnessed her fair share of technological progress, but only in recent decades has her health started to suffer at an increasing rate.

She’s now on a one-woman campaign to raise awareness of what she sees as the very real threat to our health of our growing dependence on technologies utilising higher and higher frequency radiowaves and electromagnetic fields (EMF) to transmit information with seemingly every passing year.

Her concern over the powerful tech is two-fold: There’s the impact on her own health as someone who is ES, but there’s also what she fears is the stealthier impact on the health of the wider population from proliferating radio signals.

“It’s not an easy thing to convince people about,” Delia told The Kerryman.

“As someone with ES it is getting so bad for me now that to get to Killarney I have to drive via Knocknagree and Gneeveguilla to avoid masts and I daren’t go near the town centre anymore. with the EMF generated by masts, CCTV and all these devices today.”

She’s been trying to convince successive Irish governments for years of the threat to the general population she sees, having written to everyone from John Gormley to Taoiseach Enda Kenny, Jan O’Sullivan and, most recently, Minister for Communications Denis Naughten. “The World Health Organisation (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified radio-frequency electro magnetic fields as Group 2B, meaning they are possibly carcinogenic to humans, a classification that applies to all RF-emitting devices, including Wi-Fi.”

Public health concerns over the effects of the emerging wireless technologies are not new, just witness the controversy over the one-km rule. Her fears were heightened after a chance meeting with a man at the Coolwood recycling facility outside Killarney recently.

“I would love to hear from him again as I never got his name, but he informed me how his father had passed away from leukemia, one of three to die from the disease in their locality where masts are present,” she said.

As someone deeply sensitive to EMF, Delia looks on herself as something like a canary in the mine for the wider populace – becoming physically sick from what has been described as an ‘electrosmog’ thatshe fears could well be taking a steady, low-level toll on many.

“I’ve written to the National Parents’ Council on the introduction of WiFi to schools which I think is a disgrace.

“God only knows what effect it has on children at such a crucial stage in their physical development.”

If ES people’s symptoms are an indication of concern for all it’s a conversation Ireland needs to be having, Delia said.

While science is sceptical on the ES front, Delia is convinced:

“It is estimated one per cent of the population is ES, which represents over 40,000 people in this country alone. ”
