Time to get rid of the Cell phone too Last April, while corporate “news managers” were guiding the attention of Americans elsewhere, a London newspaper reported on “What Cell Phones Can Do To Youngster's Brain In 2 Minutes”.

It turns out that a call lasting just two minutes can open the “blood-brain barrier” in kids as well as adults, allowing toxins in the bloodstream to cross this blood vessel gateway into the skull and attack brain cells. The same two-minutes cell phone exposure also disrupts the natural electrical activity of a child's brain for up to an hour afterwards.

“Leading medical experts now question whether it is safe for children to use mobile phones at all,” reported the Mirror. “Doctors fear that disturbed brain activity in children could lead to psychiatric and behavioral problems or impair learning ability.”

Dr Gerald Hyland says he is “extremely disturbed” by the new findings released in Marbella, Spain by the Spanish Neuro Diagnostic Research Institute.

"The results show that children's brains are affected for long periods even after very short-term use,” this mobile phone adviser to the British government explained. “Their brain wave patterns are abnormal and stay like that for a long period. This could affect their mood and ability to learn in the classroom if they have been using a phone during break time, for instance.”



Dramatic photographs from a recent Spanish study show radio waves from mobile phones penetrating deep into the brains of an adult, 10 year-old and five year-old child.

Dr. Hyland and other MDs worry that cell phone’s deep penetration into children’s brains and the resulting disruption to the subtle electronic exchanges between brain cells could cause kids to lose the ability to concentration and remember, making it impossible to learn.

Dr. Hyland also states that cell phone use is also linked with aggressive behavior in children. Previous studies show that anyone exposed to cell phone energy may experience “radical changes” in mood and behavior. Measuring relatively low microwave and radio frequency power levels in urban areas in 1975, Dr. William Blise found clinically diagnosed depression and violence. These effects may be even more pronounced in more susceptible adolescent children. [EMF Health Report March/April, 1995]

"It makes one wonder whether children, whose brains are still developing, should be using mobile phones," this MD declared.


SWEDISH SCIENTIST FINDS CELL PHONE HAZARDS “TERRIFTING”
Unfortunately for anyone still in ignorance or denial about putting the equivalent of a loaded pistol to their heads and pulling the trigger, new research from Sweden’s Lund University Hospital corroborates the Spanish findings. The Swedes also found that exposure to radiation emitted by mobile handsets and neighborhood relay towers can destroy cells in the parts of the brain responsible for memory, movement and learning.


CELL PHONES EXPOSE BRAIN CELLS TO BLOODSTREAM POSIONS
A study by Finish scientist Darius Leszczynski published in the journal Differentiation shows that several hundred chemicals operating in a certain type of human brain cells could be altered by the weak microwaves broadcast by mobile phones.

The blood-brain barrier normally keeps toxins and microorganisms circulating in the blood out of the brain. But Prof Leszczynski found that at the legal limit for mobile radiation, a blood-brain barrier protein named HSP 27 became ineffectual in keeping blood poisons out of brain cells.


MOBILE PHONES LEAD TO EARLIER ALZHEIMER'S
Scientists have discovered that prolonged exposure to radiation emitted by mobile phones, cell phone towers and hidden relay stations can destroy cells in the parts of the brain responsible for memory, movement and learning.

Professor Leif Salford said, "We can see reduced brain reserve capacity", meaning those who would normally have got Alzheimer's or dementia in old age will get it much earlier, those who would not 'normally' have got Alzheimer's or dementia during their lifespan are at greater risk of doing so, and that both will at best have a significantly diminished number of non dysfunctional brain cells and brain subsystems throughout their lives.

Neurosurgeon Leif Salford and colleagues at Lund university hospital in Sweden published data including the above 'before and after' images showing for the first time, an unambiguous link between radiation emitted by GSM mobile phones - the most common type worldwide - and brain damage.


CHILDHOOD CELL PHONE USE MAY MAKE YOU SENILE AT 30
According to RFSafe.com, “A whole generation of teenagers face premature senility in the prime of their lives due to the use of mobile phones and new wireless technology.”

RFSafe.com continued: “Leif Salford, who headed the research at Sweden’s prestigious Lund University, says the voluntary exposure of the brain to microwaves from hand-held mobile phones is the largest human biological experiment ever. He is concerned that, as new wireless technology spreads, people may drown in a sea of microwaves.”

Salford said it was possible that brain neurons would repair themselves in time. [Examples of brain cell self-repair are extremely rare. –WT] But the scientist warned, neurons that would normally not become senile until people reached their 60s might now do so when they are in their 30s.

PHONING YOUR CELLS
“ Cell phones” are aptly named. Every call you make, every conversation you have on a cell phone dials your cells directly.


HIGH FREQUENCY = HIGH RISK
It is not the power level but the frequency of electromagnetic emissions that pose the greatest danger. Even at very low power outputs of typical cell phones and cell phone relay towers, researchers have found the higher the frequency, the graver the risk.


YOU ARE AN ANTENNA


CELL PHONE TOWERS TARGET CHILDREN
TV, radio and cell phone towers adjacent to schools or homes could be killing kids. An Australian study by Dr. Bruce Hocking has found that children living near three TV and FM broadcast towers in Sydney had more than twice the rate of leukemia than children living more than seven miles away.





Hazardous cell phone relays are often hidden in trees and church steeples.


CELL PHONE TOWERS TRIGGER HYPERACTIVE LEUKEMIA
After earlier studies showed leukemia to be more common among mobile phone users, cell biologist Fiorenzo Marinelli and his National Research Council team in Bologna, Italy began exposing this increasingly common cancer to the same 900-megahertz frequency of many mobile networks operating at low-power outputs experienced by those living, working or studying in the vicinity of cell phone towers.


CELL PHONES CAUSE CHILDHOOD CANCERS
It is hardly surprising that cellular phone frequencies emitting artificial electromagnetic fields alien to millions of years of evolution can trigger or intensify existing cancers.

“ I believe that 30% of all childhood cancers are associated with EMF exposure.”
declares Dr. David Carpenter, Dean at the School of Public Health State University of New York

At the University of Washington, Dr. William Guy saw nearly every test animals die from malignant tumors and immune system breakdown after five years’ exposure to low-level electromagnetic fields. The EPA found Dr. Guy’s $5 million study “to have demonstrated the carcinogenic action of this type of pulsed RF radiation.” [Washington Post June7/95]



A primary school student in rural Shaoyang in central China follows fashion trends by using a mobile phone and wearing earrings and makeup.


CELL PHONES AND CANCER
The scientific evidence is absolutely conclusive: 60-hertz magnetic fields cause human cancer cells to permanently increase their rate of growth by as much as 1,600% and to develop more malignant characteristics. In 1990, the Environmental Protection Agency recommended that magnetic fields be classified as “Class B” carcinogens. This category for “probable human carcinogens” includes formaldehyde, DDT, dioxins and PCBs. [Dr.. Robert Becker, Cross-Currents]

Three major animal studies show the low-level microwave radiation similar to that emitted from wireless communication devices has a cumulative effect on cancer promotion. “At the molecular level, radio waves can

LOW POWER PULSES POSE EXTREME HAZARDS

It turns out that the weak pulses emitted by today’s digital cell phones mimics the subtle signals of the body’s cells,


CELL PHONES AND EYE CANCER
It turns out that the higher frequencies of today’s “low power” cell phones are very close to the resonant frequency of the human skull. Cancer can be caused when radio frequency radiation released by a handheld cell phone bounces back and forth in eye sockets filled with “naturally conductive” fluid. Research from the University of Essen in Germany shows how this watery uveal layer comprising the iris and base of the retina absorbs cell phone radiation with every call, increasing the chances of contracting eye cancer. [Epidemiology Jan/01]

CELL PHONES CAUSE TUMORS TO SPROUT ON SIDE OF HEAD
While users tout the “indispensable convenience” of pocket phones, which they happily did without for much of their lives, few seem to recognize the drastic inconvenience of cancer.


CELL PHONES RELEASE STRESS PROTEINS
In 2002, Silva continued, the Journal of Cellular Biochemistry reported that heavy cell-phone use could cause brain cancer and other diseases by interfering with DNA repair of wayward cells.

FORGETFUL CELL PHONE USERS
Other researchers confirm the link between the use of mobile phones - and/or exposure of similar duration to radiation from mobile phone relay towers - and the early onset of Alzheimer's disease and dementia.

CELL PHONES AND ASTHMA
Often attributed to steadily poisoned air in the enclosed spaces of a sun-orbiting space colony called Earth, alarming asthma increases among children and adults are also linked to cell phone pollution. Attempting to explain the 25% increase of asthma throughout the metropolitan area of Sydney, Australia, and the 5% increase in death rates there, cell phone researcher PW Franch found the production


CELL PHONES CUT MALE FERTILITY
Of course, your offspring will never be affected by cell phone emissions if you do not – or cannot – have any. Radiation from the phones could cut male sperm production by a third, researchers from the University of Szeged, Hungary told the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology.


CROAKING
For more than a decade, the precipitous decline in frog populations worldwide has been studied as a warning of high-levels of pollution or ultraviolet radiation from our planet’s unraveling solar shield that could also be affecting humans. So far, studies have been inconclusive.


CELL PHONE RISK “EXTREMELY HIGH”
Neil Cherry, a biophysicist at Lincoln University in Christ Church, New Zealand considers the proliferation of cell phones, microwave towers and microwave pollution to be a serious contributor to cancer, brain tumors and increasing neurological problems among the human population. >>>


DNA DAMAGED BY CELL PHONES
In 1993, the wireless industry association hired Dr. George Carlo, an epidemiologist to manage a six year, $28 million dollar research program into cell phone-cancer research. This study found genetic damage from wireless phone radiation. Dr. Carlo’s Cell Phones: Invisible Hazards in the Wireless Age blames the wireless industry and federal regulators for not following up on studies showing DNA damage and other health hazards from wireless telephone use.>>>

CELL PHONE DAMAGE IS FOREVER

PRECAUTIONARY PRINCIPLE
As more and more modern “advances” are revealed as hazardous to healthy cellular life and reproduction, it is time to shift our decisions to precaution and prevention rather than risk. Instead of asking what level of risk is acceptable, a precautionary approach asks, "How much risk can be avoided?"

In 1992, the U.S. signed on to a UN declaration endorsing the "Precautionary Principle".
Europe - but not the USA - has actually adopted this approach, with much more stringent standards for electromagnetic emissions.


DISNEY ABANDONS LUCRATIVE CHILD-CELLPHONE BRANDING
As industry watchdog Jeffrey Silva relates, in 2000, Walt Disney “discontinued licensing some of its cartoon characters for display on mobile-phone faceplates because of health questions.”

My oldest is already there...just don't send them to a catholic camp run by a bunch of leering preists . The camp I sent my oldest to is great, I spoke with the directors before he went (he has never been anywhere that I have been unable to call to say goodnight, and he won't be home the next morning), and I met his counsellors who gave us a rundown on cabin rules on the drop off day. I was also able to call and speak with his counsellor today to check in and see how he was doing...He's even passing the message on that I miss him and am glad that he's having fun. A camp like that is great. One that doesn't seem so open, send your worst enemy's rabid dog there instead and see how they come out of it
