Toxic truth: lifestyle-related chronic disease is widely recognised as being one of the top underlying causes for death.
Epidemics and pandemics have been fuelled by high intake of sugar, fat, salt, alcohol, tobacco and lack of physical exercise. Along with this, is the involuntary exposure to the cocktail of industrial chemicals. The World Health Organisation are paying attention to this as they forecast a “tidal wave of cancer.”
The Shift in Thinking
Toxicology has shifted the scientific thinking. Previously the view was that “the dose makes the poison,” and now we are looking at windows of development and minute doses being extremely problematic.
No longer is toxicity about the dose – “the type of chemical, timing of exposure, the combination of chemicals and individual risk factors” all play a role in the toxic effects, says Prof. Marc Cohen.
190 Scientists from 39 Nations Appeal to U.N. to Protect Humans and Wildlife from Electromagnetic Fields and Wireless Technology
Exposure standards to radiofrequencies (used in wireless technology – including mobile phones, cordless phones, tablets, wireless baby monitors and so forth) are based on the outdated and ludicrous notion that it needs to heat tissue before it is considered a danger.
There are many more effects on health than merely heating the tissues.
These scientists have published over 2000 peer-reviewed research papers on the biological or health effects of non-ionizing radiation (this is the level of radiation on the electromagnetic spectrum that includes our household wiring [ELF extra low frequency] and wireless technology [RF – radiofrequencies]).
This is too much evidence for the authorities to ignore.
“Radiowave sickness” has been recognised for decades and Dave Stetzer points out that “chronic fatigue… fibromyalgia or ADD/ADHD [if] you look at the symptoms of radiowave sickness; they overlap.”♦
In a recent interview with Michael Bevington ♦ (from ES-UK) he said that, “by the 1960s, in Russia and in Poland – who also did a large amount of research – they'd established what it was. They broke it down to three different categories and they looked particularly at the cardiovascular effects from the heart, but also on the central nervous system, and also on the brain, and the effects that it had on cognition, memory loss, [and] that type of thing.”
“Screen dermatitis” was studied in the 1970s by Prof Olle Johansson. ♦
In the last few years, Prof Emeritus Martin Pall has made the link between EMF exposure and the effect it has on cells, causing calcium to flood into them, and resulting in apoptosis (programmed cell death). ♦
EMF Scientist Dr Martin Blank
In his talk (below) Dr Martin Blank says the following:
Before Edison's lightbulb, there was very little electromagnetic radiation in our environment. The levels today are very many times higher than natural background levels and are growing rapidly because of all the new devices that emit this radiation.
An example that a lot of us have in our pockets right now is the cell phone. One study shows that as cell phone usage has spread widely, the incidence of fatal brain cancer in younger people has more than tripled. We are putting cellular antennas on residential buildings, and on top of hospitals, where people are trying to get well. Wireless utility meters, and cell towers, are blanketing our neighborhoods with radiation.
It's particularly frightening that radiation from our telecommunication and powerline technology is damaging the DNA in our cells. It is clear to many biologists that this can account for the rising cancer rates.
Future generations – OUR CHILDREN – ARE AT RISK.
These biologists and scientists are not being heard on the committees that set safety standards. The BIOLOGICAL facts are being ignored, and as a result, the safety limits are much too high. THEY ARE NOT PROTECTIVE!
