First off, all controversy on this topic is essentially suppressed by the cell phone industry and more generally by the electronics industry. No surprise there at all.
My problem though is that the meta statistics fail to confirm any global change at all for the past three decades. If there is a real problem it must show up and this is not apparent at all. With that i usually go back to sleep.
Yet it is also possible to have plenty of non fatal changes as well and that needs to also be considered as well. This item gives us a start on the problem.
I do think that we have a low level effect that does cause cellular damage, but below the threshold for lasting damage, much like low level exposure to radiation. There we often find that it stimulates instead.
The $25 million research conducted by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) — an interagency research program started by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in 1978 and now housed at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) — includes two separate studies: one on mice and one on rats. The studies, in which 3,000 animals were exposed to the type of radiation emitted by 2G and 3G cellphones, are said to be the most extensive to date.
“It’s a completely different model of how the cell functions,” Philips says. “The cell functions as a gel, if you like, held together by electric charge. The calcium-gated channel is part of that, but actually, it isn’t a membrane with a few things sticking through it.
It’s actually … electric charges on molecules. Yes, Pall’s [hypothesis] is very important and it’s probably one of the key mechanisms, but there’s a whole lot of things … [T]he cell is just malfunctioning because it’s got so much charge… [I]t’s an enormous incoming stream of electrons, and that changes completely what the cells are doing.”
“When you impair the flow of protons to ATP synthase, you increase mitochondrial membrane polarization … If you increase the polarization of the mitochondria by 14 percent, you will have a 70 percent increase in the reactive oxygen species coming out of complex one, which is the leading edge of the oxidative phosphorylation chain.
Essentially, my explanation is that by physical action on water, you can change the transparency of the most critical enzyme in the human body, modulate the amount of ATP, increase the escape of electrons from complex one; thereby explaining practically all of the observations related to EMF. Of course, the moment ATP is perturbed in a cell, there are calcium signals being emitted all over the place, because calcium is possibly the most critical intracellular messenger.”
|Connect your desktop
computer to the internet via a wired Ethernet connection and be sure to
put your desktop in airplane mode. Also avoid wireless keyboards,
trackballs, mice, game systems, printers and portable house phones. Opt
for the wired versions.
|If you must use Wi-Fi, shut it off when not in use,
especially at night when you are sleeping. Ideally, work toward
hardwiring your house so you can eliminate Wi-Fi altogether. If you have
a notebook without any Ethernet ports, a USB Ethernet adapter will
allow you to connect to the internet with a wired connection.
|Shut off the electricity to your bedroom at night. This
typically works to reduce electrical fields from the wires in your wall
unless there is an adjoining room next to your bedroom. If that is the
case you will need to use a meter to determine if you also need to turn
off power in the adjacent room.
|Use a battery-powered alarm clock, ideally one without any light. I use a talking clock for the visually impaired.44
|If you still use a microwave oven, consider replacing
it with a steam convection oven, which will heat your food as quickly
and far more safely.
|Avoid using “smart” appliances and thermostats that
depend on wireless signaling. This would include all new “smart” TVs.
They are called smart because they emit a Wi-Fi signal, and unlike your
computer, you cannot shut the Wi-Fi signal off. Consider using a large
computer monitor as your TV instead, as they don’t emit Wi-Fi.
|Refuse smart meters as long as you can, or add a shield
to an existing smart meter, some of which have been shown to reduce
radiation by 98 to 99 percent.45
|Consider moving your baby’s bed into your room instead
of using a wireless baby monitor. Alternatively, use a hard-wired
|Replace CFL bulbs with incandescent bulbs. Ideally
remove all fluorescent lights from your house. Not only do they emit
unhealthy light, but more importantly, they will actually transfer
current to your body just being close to the bulbs.
|Avoid carrying your cellphone on your body unless in
airplane mode and never sleep with it in your bedroom unless it is in
airplane mode. Even in airplane mode it can emit signals, which is why I
put my phone in a Faraday bag.46
|When using your cellphone, use the speaker phone and hold the phone at least 3 feet away from you. Seek to radically decrease your time on the cellphone. I typically use my cellphone less than 30 minutes a month, and mostly when traveling. Instead, use VoIP software phones that you can use while connected to the internet via a wired connection.|
