Cellular Phones

October 07th 2008 - Now, the brain is simply fascinating. I now have had 4 classes dealing with the brain specifically because of how it so often affects so much of the rest of the body. The teacher of the class who happens to be a physician believes from his research that brain cells are deformed by cellular phone exposure. From studies that I have read, it supposedly even damages the DNA and RNA within the cells. But due to this damage, brain tumors are supposedly the frequent result. Obviously because of the money in the industry and our "dependence" upon the product, the ill effects of cell phones will probably be kept under wraps. Only until enough people become wise enough to realize that something is not right will this change.

Another aspect of cell phones is the fact it uses a microwave bandwidth. There are videos on the net showing people using cell phones to pop popcorn. Now, I have no idea whether that is possible or not. I would tend to lean towards it being a hoax. But I do know that microwave radiation is not good for you.

If you want to see a visual representation of what microwave radiation looks like, then go to the first website listed below. It includes the picture of what microwaved water looks like from Dr Masuru Emoto's work. The second site includes what microwaved water does to plants. Just think what it does to you when you "nuke" your coffee. The 3rd site is Dr. Emoto explaining his resaerch.

Next, I have included an article by Victoria Fletcher that follows.

Radiation from mobile phones causes changes in the brain which could pose risks to health, an authoritative two-year study has concluded. In ground-breaking research on the effects of radiation on the brain - which has for the first time used human cells rather than rats - scientists found that even low-level emissions from handsets affects cells. They believe the changes could disable a safety barrier in the body which is meant to protect the brain from harmful substances in the blood. The scientists are now calling for further research to discover how important the effects on health might be.

The study, conducted by the Radiation and Nuclear Safety
Authority in Finland, found that exposing human cells to one hour of mobile phone radiation triggered a response which normally only occurs when cells are being damaged. This led the cells which make up blood vessel walls to shrink, allowing tiny molecules to pass through into brain tissue. The report's conclusion warns: "The possible RF-EMF (radiation-induced breakage of the blood-brain barrier), if occurring repeatedly over a long period of
time, might become a health hazard because of the possible extra-capillary accumulation of molecules that might cause brain tissue damage."

The study is a an important step forward in mobile phone research because it has proved biochemical changes, which were found to occur in rats, also occur in human cells. Scientists now need to discover how the human body reacts to such changes and whether it can cope, or if there are serious health threats.

Professor Darius Leszczynski, who will present the research at a conference in Canada this month, said he could confirm that radiation from mobile phones does affect the delicate make-up of human cells. "We have shown there are biochemical changes in human cells," he told the Evening Standard. "Other studies in animals have shown this can lead to a leakage in the blood brain barrier. "So what I believe is that we will find these leaks occur in humans too. What we do not know is the extent of these leaks and whether they
have an effect on our health. "Our bodies may be able to cope with it so there will be no risks. But it could be found that, over time, the effects on health could be much more significant."

Two years ago, a government inquiry into mobile phones led by Sir William Stewart concluded there was no evidence of a risk to health. But he advised that caution is taken over the use of mobiles by children until more evidence on the impact on health is gathered. Despite multi-million pound research across the world since then, the effects of long-term use still remains unclear. But recently, a handful of studies have begun to raise questions over safety. A survey of 11,000 people in Sweden and Norway found that many suffer from headaches and tiredness after using the gadgets. Another study, by Swedish cancer specialist Lennart Hardell, suggested that using the old analogue mobiles, popular in the early Nineties, increased the risk of cancer. His research is now at the centre of a lawsuit in the US. Judges are deciding whether it provides enough proof of a link between cancer and mobile phones for claimants to take manufacturers to court. However, the growing body of research on mobiles and health is leading some countries to consider action. China is debating whether to force phone companies to reduce the levels of radiation. British experts said last night there was no need for panic. They insisted that more research was needed. © Associated Newspapers Ltd., 19 June 2002http://www.thisislondon.com/dynamic/news/s
