The Research: Biological Effects
Thousands of Studies Are Showing Biological Effects
Increases Cancer Risk
* 200% increase in Brain Tumors and Acoustic Neuromas for those using a cell phone on the same side of the head for 10 years (average 30 minutes per day) 48. * Children who start using a cell phone before the age of 20 are 5 times more likely to get brain cancer 49. * Cell Phone Radiation Breaks DNA leading to mutated genes cancers, and deformities 50.* There is evidence that we are indeed moving towards a brain tumor epidemic. Experts are predicting a 2000% increase in brain tumors the next 20 years 51.
Affects Fertility and Breaks DNA
* Cell Phone Use/Exposure decreases sperm count and sperm motility (the ability for the sperm to find its way to the egg) 52. * Experiments show increased rates of deformities/mortality in chick embryos 53.
Triggers (and may cause) Allergic Reactions
*Increases allergic reactions like eczema, asthma, and hay fever 54.
Disrupts Hormones and Neurotransmitters
* EMR exposure changes the levels of hormones and neurotransmitters in the brain like melatonin, serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and acetylcholine 55. Changes in these hormones/neurotransmitters are associated with sleep disturbances, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), CFS, miscarriages, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer`s, Parkinson`s, depression, behavior changes, chemical sensitivities, and suicide 56. * Produces an (initial) increase in the adrenal stress hormones – Adrenaline and Cortisol – connected with restlessness and anxiety and eventuating in adrenal exhaustion 57.
Weakens Immune System
* Research has shown that just having a wireless device on your body in standby mode can weaken your immune system58. * Decreases Natural Killer Cell counts necessary for defending against pathogens and destroying abnormal (virally-infected and cancer) cells59. * Changes the T-helper/T-suppressor (T4/T8) cell ratio – from normal to abnormal – which has been shown to lead to increased susceptibility to viral, fungal, and bacterial infections60. Symptoms include “sore throats, low-grade fevers, weakness, persistent fatigue, and swollen lymph glands 61.”
Can Damage Kidney and Heart Function
* In a study carried out by Dr George Sajin at the European Research Institute for Electronic Components based in Bucharest, samples of blood were exposed to varying degrees of microwave radiation over a period of between 10 and 60 hours. Even at levels lower than those emitted by mobile phones, the cells leaked hemoglobin. The unsequestered iron from hemoglobin can accumulate in – and hence damage – kidney and heart tissue 62.
Affects Behavior of Children of Pregnant Mothers Who Used Cell Phones
* A large study, surveying more than 13,000 children, found that women who used mobile phones when pregnant were more likely to give birth to children with behavioral problems. These included developing hyperactivity and difficulties with conduct, emotions and relationships by the time they reached school age. The likelihood was even greater if the children themselves used the phones before the age of seven. A Yale University study showed that fetal exposure to cell phones had an effect on adult behavior. Rats exposed to cell phone radiation while in the womb showed hyperactivity and reduced memory capacity as adults resembling ADHD in humans 63.
WHO-Acknowledged Studies Find Cancer Clusters Around Cell Towers
* 80% of (W.H.O. acknowledged) studies on people living in the vicinity of mobile-phone base-stations, show a significantly increased risk of neurological diseases, impaired well-being and cancer 64.
