‘The most serious health endpoints that have been reported to be associated with extremely low frequency (ELF) and/or radio-frequency radiation (RFR) include childhood and adult leukemia, childhood and adult brain tumors, and increased risk of the neuro-degenerative diseases, Alzheimer’s and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).’
Cindy Sage, Bioinitiative report 2014 update
One theme which is emerging. It is apparent from the comments appended to some of the articles featured here that more people are becoming aware of EMF-related issues and are taking them seriously. Obvious trolls, and those parroting the standard industry mantras get slapped down quite quickly and aggressively in some cases.
A new book on addiction, which is attracting some attention
http://www.businessinsider.com…..ter-2017-5 – where has all the free time gone?
The War on Children. At least some people are trying to fight back
Music video? protest song?
Is anyone listening? Does anyone care?

http://www.naturalnews.com/201…..drugs.html – children being drugged for sleep problems. At least they advise ‘Turning off all electronic devices an hour before bed’ – but for some children this is clearly not enough

Son of Google Glass?
At least they appear not to transmit all the time…..
If you’re thinking of buying these for yourself, family, friends (or enemies if you’re that way inclined) you might wish to consider the following:
Milt Zaret’s experiments from 1960/70’s reported in Cross Currents by Robert Becker
https://www.emf-portal.org/en/…..ticle/7707 – probably the same experiment
– references to cataracts caused by microwaves
I wonder if the manufacturers have done any safety testing, or if they have insurance against ill-effects from the radiation?
WHO on screen time
WHO concerned about screen time – but not about radiation, despite the IARC determination?

Camilla Rees: ‘CA Senate passes unconstitutional bill that will forcibly expose citizens to constant, hazardous radiation. SB.649’
Ellie Marks: ‘We are concerned that members of the California Senate may be under the influence of the telecommunications…’

Following on from the CBC documentary: ‘Under court order, the National Frequency Agency (ANFR) of France has just disclosed that most cell phones exceed government radiation limits when tested the way they are used, next to the body’

http://www.marieclaire.co.uk/entertainment/mobile-phone-radiation-499485 – better-than-average article from an unexpected source
But falls into some common traps
‘mobiles emit relatively weak electromagnetic radiation’ – ‘weak’ enough to travel several kilometers to the nearest mast, and to penetrate concrete, trees, vehicles (and people) etc.
Also includes a link to a magic patch which miraculously reduces radiation by ‘up to 70%’.
There is no evidence cited on the site which sells them
‘up to 70%’ is logically equivalent to ‘less than 70%’, and is that enough to make a real difference, bearing in mind the research which finds greater effects at lower power levels (Becker, Salford, Goldsworthy etc).
‘The R2L should not be purchased for Wi-Fi ONLY as the emissions for those actions are so very low they do not need protection’. Really? So why does wifi affect so many people, as well as cress seeds etc?
And a reminder of Dariusz Leszczynski,’s article which was re-posted this week – https://betweenrockandhardplace.wordpress.com/2016/08/23/chips-and-stickers-protecting-cell-phone-user-are-scam/

Smartphone thumb – a new medical diagnosis and a new hazard for phone addicts?
Could it be connected with the radiation exposure, which has repeatedly been shown to provoke an inflammatory response?
