Studie in Nature: elektromagnetische velden verstoren oriëntatievermogen vogels


PubMed - "The disruptive effect of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields is not confined to a narrow frequency band and birds tested far from sources of electromagnetic noise required no screening to orient with their magnetic compass. These fully double-blinded tests document a reproducible effect of anthropogenic electromagnetic noise on the behaviour of an intact vertebrate."

Effects of mobile phone radiation on structure and functions of rat brain


PubMed - "A significant change in behavior, i.e., more anxiety and poor learning was shown by test animals as compared to controls and sham group. A significant change in level of antioxidant enzymes and non-enzymatic antioxidants, and increase in lipid peroxidation were observed in test rats. Histological examination showed neurodegenerative cells in hippocampal sub regions and cerebral cortex.


Findings indicate extensive neurodegeneration on exposure to radio waves. Increased production of reactive oxygen species due to exhaustion of enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants and increased lipid peroxidation are indicating extensive neurodegeneration in selective areas of CA1, CA3, DG, and cerebral cortex. This extensive neuronal damage results in alterations in behavior related to memory and learning."

Significant increase in nose-ear-throat cancers seen in Israel

EMFacts - Within 1 year only: nose-ear-throat surgeries in Rambam hospital increased in 100%


More than 2000 surgeries were done during 2013 in the nose-ear-throat department in Rambam, 2 fold more compared to the previous year


The number of head, neck, and nose-ear-throat surgeries in Rambam were doubled within one year. According to the data of the nose-ear-throat department, the increase was registered mainly in oncology surgeries of the mouth, head and neck, larynx and children surgeries. Thyroid surgeries increased 380% during last year. Increase of 320% was in surgeries for removing tumors in the throat area (from 40 to 128 surgeries). Surgeries of the parotid gland tumors increased 260% in 2013. But the most impressive increase of all, is the increase of 1000% (from 5 to 49) in the number of head and neck surgeries.

Biochemical Modifications and Neuronal Damage in Brain of Young and Adult Rats After Long-Term Exposure to Mobile Phone Radiations


"Significant increments in conjugated dienes, protein carbonyls, total oxidant status, and oxidative stress index along with a significant reduction of total antioxidant capacity levels were evident after exposure. Bax/Bcl-2 ratio, caspase-3 activity, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha level were enhanced, whereas no DNA fragmentation was detected. The relative brain weight of young rats was greatly affected, and histopathological examination reinforced the neuronal damage. The study highlights the detrimental effects of mobile phone radiations on brain during young and adult ages. The interaction of these radiations with brain is via dissipating its antioxidant status and/or triggering apoptotic cell death."

Franse studie bevestigt link tussen gsm en hersentumor


gsm_tegen_hoofdFranse studie bevestigt dat gsm/smartphone-gebruik hersentumoren kan veroorzaken. Het risico is al verhoogd vanaf een half uur gsm-gebruik per dag.


De vraag is ook wat dit zegt over tablet-gebruik, daar tablets gelijkaardige of hogere stralingsniveaus veroorzaken dan wanneer men belt met de gsm/smartphone. Bovendien is de blootstelling veel langduriger.

Allan Frey, Modulation and Microwave Radiation Crossing the Blood Brain Barrier


"Frey observed two factors in how microwaves at low power could affect living systems. First, there was the carrier wave: a frequency of 1,900 megahertz, for example, the same frequency of many cell phones today. Then there was the data placed on the carrier wave—in the case of cell phones, this would be the sounds, words, and pictures that travel along it. When you add information to a carrier wave, it embeds a second signal—a second frequency—within the carrier wave. This is known as modulation. A carrier wave can support any number of modulations, even those that match the ­extra-low frequencies at which the brain operates (between eight and twenty hertz). It was modulation, Frey discovered, that induced the widest variety of biological effects. But how this happened, on a neuronal level, he didn't yet understand."

Says Frey in regards to cell phones: "it just so happens. .. that the frequencies and modulations of our cell phones seem to be the frequencies that humans are particularly sensitive to. If we had looked into it a little more, if we had done the real science, we could have allocated spectrums that the body can't feel... The public should know if they are taking a risk with cell phones. What we are doing is a grand world experiment without informed consent."

Effect of exposure and withdrawal of 900-MHz-electromagnetic waves on brain, kidney and liver oxidative stress and some biochemical parameters in male rats

Merhan Mamdouh Ragy. Effect of exposure and withdrawal of 900-MHz-electromagnetic waves on brain, kidneyand liver oxidative stress and some biochemical parameters in male rats. Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine. Posted online on April 8, 2014. (doi:10.3109/15368378.2014.906446).

Wi-Fi Radiation Induces “Diabetic-Like Status” in Rats


Smart grid awareness - In a recent study published in the journal of Environmental Toxicology and Pharmacology [1], an investigation was performed to study the effects of exposing rats to radiofrequency (RF) radiation from Wi-Fi devices and to further study the possible protective role of administering an olive leaf extract to reduce the damage in liver and kidney cells of the exposed rats.

The Effect of Microwaves on the Central Nervous System


W. Bergman, Translated from German for Ford Motor Company, 1965


[Archived by Magda Havas.]


The autonomic nervous system is affected by the microwaves of the centimeter wave length band. These waves affect circulation, respiration, temperature control, water balance, albumin and sugar concentration in the cerebro-spinal fluid. Hydrogen ion concentration. EEG. GSR, sleep. conscious awareness, etc. Depending on the applied dosage, these waves stimulate the sympathetic or parasympathetic system. Very small dosages produce analgesic effects; however, very large dosages are fatal. An undamped or modulated frequency is more effective than damped waves. The biological effect of these waves results from the resonance absorption in the ganglia. There are indications that only higher harmonics) and not the fundamental frequency. produce biological effects . The shielding of the test subject by metal screens increases these effects; however, magnetic fields remove them. Higher harmonics producing these biological effects have physical properties which are similar to those of the bio-electrical energy generated by the human body. The mechanism of hypnosis is explained by the transmission of this energy.

Fysicus waarschuwt voor vroegtijdige veroudering hersenen


Paul Héroux, fysicus aan het hoofd van het "In Vitro Toxicology Laboratory" aan de McGill universiteit in Canada, waarschuwt dat EM straling tot een vroegtijdige veroudering van de hersenen kan leiden. Hij deed zelf lange tijd onderzoek naar de elektrische eigenschappen van levende weefsels en onderwijst nu aan de medische faculteit van McGill universiteit over de gezondheidseffecten van straling.


EM straling is volgens hem niet op slag dodelijk, maar heeft een uitwerking op lange termijn. Neurologen met expertise ter zake menen volgens hem dat EM straling zorgt voor een langzame erosie, een accumulatie van lichte beschadigingen aan de hersenen. Het resultaat is een vroegtijdige veroudering van de hersenen en een snellere mentale achteruitgang.


Hij stelt verder dat we eerder al een gelijkaardige situatie meemaakten toen er nog lood in benzine zat, hetgeen het IQ van een hele generatie kinderen met 5 punten naar beneden heeft gehaald.


Hij stelt ook dat de beste experten wereldwijd wijzen op een verband tussen kanker en zowel laag- als hoogfrequente straling.
