About 56 percent of the 308 studies (both industry-funded and independent) involving cell-phone radiation have shown biological effects. To be fair, I haven’t mentioned any of the other 44 percent that show no such effect. However, many of these studies were funded by the cellphone industry. If you take into account only the non-industry funded studies, a much higher number, 68 percent, show that cell phone radiation causes biological effects.
Remember, according to findings from the 6-year $28 million research funded by the industry itself and headed by Dr. George Carlo, there is significant cause for alarm. His findings have been confirmed by recent European studies.
These studies have shown such biological effects as damage to DNA, changes in brain electrical activity, breakdown in the blood-brain barrier and others mentioned on this page. Biological effects don’t necessarily lead to degenerative conditions. This is because the body’s immune system has repair mechanisms to overcome them. This is one reason for the difficulty among governments and experts around the world in establishing exposure safety standards. Some people will be more susceptible than others, and it is an enormous task to determine how much exposure to consider safe when dealing with varying susceptibilities among the population.
However, one thing is becoming clear: A one time exposure might not be of much consequence. But with cumulative stress resulting from repeated exposures, the repair process might break down.
Scientists are concerned that subtle changes in our bodies triggered by long-term cellphone use could be precursors to serious problems such as headaches, cancer, benign tumors, early onset of Alzheimer’s and reduced fertility–potential health risks that could prove decades to prove or disprove.
If the previous environmental issues involving tobacco, asbestos, and lead are any indication, it takes years and even decades to accumulate the amount of evidence for the goverment to come to a definitive conclusion. In the case of cigarette smoking, it took two decades of study and 100 years of consumer use to gather enough data to meet research standards to demonstrate the need for the U.S. Surgeon General’s warning label on cigarette packs. Some experts say that in the case of cell phones, it should not take that long as data are coming in at a faster pace. But at the present the authorities can only urge people to exercise caution.
Dr. George Carlo says that by 2010, the epidemic curve projections indicate 500,000 cases of brain and eye cancer each year attributable to cell phone use. Do we really want to wait and see if that holds true? According to WHO report, 0.1 billion people have died from tobacco use in the 20th century, and 10 times as many will die in the 21st century. No one is suggesting that using cell phones could lead to as many casualties, but do we really want to wait and find out?
Meanwhile, what do you do?–
Do you really want to wait until the rest of the world concurs
cell phone radiation could be damaging your health? By that time,
it might be too late. Here are a few simple precautions
you can do right now–
Dr. George Carlo, now head of the non-profit Science and Public Policy Institute, outlines in his Safe Wireless Initiative program three means or layers of intervention that you can do right now to help you and your family minimize the health risks associated with EMF radiation.
Primary means of intervention include avoidance measures.
Secondary means of intervention include measures to minimize effect of radiation on biofield.
Tertiary means of intervention include lifestyle measures that enhance general wellness and health.
Here are some suggestions based on this multi-layered approach to intervetion:
I. Primary Intervention:
- Limit use to essential calls.
- Keep calls short.
- Wear an airtube headset and keep the cell phone away from your body.
- If using the phone without a headset, wait for the call to connect before placing the phone next to the ear.
- Use text messaging.
- Do not use the cell phone in enclosed metal spaces such as vehicles or elevators, where devices may use more power to establish connection.
- Do not make a call when the signal strenght is one bar or less, which means the phone must work harder to establish a connection.
- Avoid using belt clips, holster or similar accessories made of metallic components.
- Purchase a phone with a low SAR (Specific Absorption Rate). Most phones have a SAR level listed in its instruction manual. The SAR level is a way of measuring the quantity of radiofrequency (RF) energy that is absorbed by the body. The lower number the better. (Be aware, however, that studies with RF hundreds of times lower than current SAR limits still show biological effects.)
- Install a cell phone radiation protection device such as the GIA Cell Guard, which has a patented shield technology that superimposes a low-frequency ‘noise-field’ on to the radiofrequency to make it harmless to the body.
These measures will help minimize exposure to EMF that you can control. However, even if you’re not using a cell phone, you are still subject to ‘second hand’ radiation from other people in your vicinity using THEIR cell phones! And it is not only RF/microwave frequencies from cell phones and cordless phones that you need to be concerned about. Studies are showing that EMFs emitted by TVs, computers, household appliances, office equipment, household wiring cause biological effects and contribute to growing stress in people’s lives. It is next to impossible, and even impractical, to avoid daily EMF exposure!
What you need is a device that will help strengthen your own body’s resistance against the effects of electromagnetic radiation–
II. Secondary intervention:
Devices that protect or strengthen the human
Biofield against effects of EMF radiation
The human biofield, or bioenergetic field that emanates from the human body, is a matrix of subtle electromagnetic waves that connect cells, tissues and organs and serves as the main communication network and regulator of life processes. External stressors such as EMF cause stress on the biofield that with repeated exposure could lead to the disruption of these biological processes.
The technology behind the GIALife or Q-Link pendant has been substantiated by over a decade of research showing its ability to efficiently resonate life-supporting frequencies in the biofield and enable a powerful response to stress. Most people immediately notice heightened energy and a quick return to homeostatic balance. Since cell phones are not our only source of EMFs, it’s next to impossible to avoid EMF exposure. Simple avoidance measures, while necessary first steps, are not sufficient and not always practical. This makes tools like these, which you can wear 24 hours a day everywhere you go, a becoming necessity.
III. Tertiary intervention:
Lifestyle activities and choices that enhance wellness
This could simply include things such as spending time in nature, eating a healthy diet, taking nutritional supplements (including powerful antioxidants to combat free radical damage), physical exercise, qi gong and other practices that strengthen the bioenergetic field and immune system, etc. The stronger your immune system, the more quickly and efficiently your biological repair mechanisms are able to overcome any EMF-induced stress, or any stress for that matter.
Combining all three types of intervention will go a long way in buttressing your defences against the onslaught of electromagnetic radiation.
With our daily EMF exposure growing exponentially with no end in sight, it is becoming more and more imperative to protect yourself from these energy drains and function optimally the way you need to function–
