These DNA fragments are called micronuclei, typical mutations from excessive X-rays, or from gamma waves of nuclear detonation. The power level used to micronucleate this photograph was 1.3 W/k Specific Absorption Rate (SAR).
SAR is the calculated amount of energy absorbed by the human body from microwave phones. (1) “Parents have made teens and their younger 8-12 year old siblings the fastest growing segment of the cellphone market,” says Yankee Group, a consulting firm which promotes all things wireless.
(2) In 2007, a Harris Interactive survey reported that American kids age 10-17 admit to using a cellphone an average of up to 3.75 hours per day. As heavy users of wireless, these millions of idle, entertainment-starved kids are among the radiation industry’s most lucrative cash cows.
But getting milked at an early age should garner hazard pay, according to thousands of scientific studies compiled over decades. There is ample evidence that kids who continually irradiate themselves with pulsing, ELF-embedded microwaves from wireless devices are being set up for general health degradation, severe nerve damage, mental incapacitation and life-threatening tumors.
“I would not want to be a heavy user of a mobile phone, ” says Professor Bruce Armstrong, researcher at the University of Sydney School of Public Health. Heading the Australian component of the multi-nation Interphone study project, Armstrong told the media in April 2008, that evidence of a mobile phone connection with harmful effects, including tumors, is accumulating.
In 2005, the Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics confirmed that children are especially sensitive to all electromagnetic fields because their developing nervous systems are fragile, their brain tissues more conductive and their smaller skeletons more easily penetrated by the waves. The Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection says that we may expect kids who use cell phones to suffer not only brain tumors and dementia, but also increased epileptic readiness and depressive mental illness.
(7) Canadian officials say that children should limit cellphone use until health science catches up with technology. (8) The French health minister advised in January 2008, that kids be allowed no more than 6 wireless minutes at any one time.
(9) (Cleanup workers at Chernobyl were limited to a few minutes in nuclear radiation areas). Wireless radiation guarantees major disruption in the chemical communication pathways between all the cells of the body and that’s been known since WW2.
According to research presented in 2007 by the American Academy of Otolaryngology, cellphone radiation incrementally damages the inner ear, causing high frequency hearing loss. (11) Youthful cellphone habituates will suffer major and irreversible hearing damage by the time they reach young adulthood.
In the 1970s, researcher Milton Part demonstrated that weak microwave fields cause debilitating subcapsular eye lesions, sometimes years after exposure. (12) Israeli researchers have confirmed that microwaves at cellphone intensities cause macro and micro damage to the entire visual system, including tiny bubbles that can form on the eye lens.
This leakage causes irreversible oxidative stress and nerve tissue damage. In late 2007, Israeli experts announced that talking as little as 10 minutes on a cellphone triggers changes in brain tissues linked to abnormal cell division and cancer.
(20) In 2006, studies by three European research groups reported an increased incidence of brain tumors in people who have used mobile phones for ten years or more. After 2000 hours of microwave phone exposure, kids face a 240 percent increased risk of developing brain malignancy.
Yet a mere 24 hours of wireless phone radiation can inflict the same damage to a child’s tissues as 1600 chest X-rays. The U.S. government allowed wireless phones to be put on the market in the 1980s with absolutely no safety testing.
For each minute a child presses a microwave phone to his head, he may suffer radiation damage equivalent to approximately 1.1 chest X-rays. For each hour a child uses a transmitting wireless phone or wireless laptop to communicate, watch videos/TV or play games, he may be exposing his developing brain, eye and gut tissues to radiation damage equivalent to 66.6 chest X-rays.
Ionizing X-radiation, like that used for chest X-rays and other medical procedures, is on carcinogen “List One,” compiled by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (ARC). ARC ranks X-radiation on par with gamma radiation, plutonium, dioxin and benzene, all known to induce cancer in both animals and humans.
What REFLEX studies prove is how quickly that devastating damage takes place. The public health catastrophe being unleashed by indiscriminate use of wireless phones is further brought into focus by a double-blind medical study completed in India in 2005 and published in the Indian Journal of Human Genetics.
The study analyzed micronucleated cell damage in blood and buccal (mouth) tissues of people who use their cellphone one to 15 hours a day. A whopping average of 39.75 percent of cells taken from mobile phone users showed DNA damage.
The Indian study confirms that the human body, overwhelmed with the continual and brutal assault of wireless radiation, is unable to perform normal cellular repair. (24) The body’s exhausted immune and repair systems eventually become too decimated to do much more than survive poorly.
These warning signs are just the beginning of a long, downward spiral of general deterioration, including circulatory ailments, immune dysfunction, allergies and premature aging. A child’s body, kept in chronic allergic stress by wireless phone radiation, may end up with an exhausted immune system which no longer responds effectively.
European experts prognosticate that many people heavily exposed to wireless radiation may eventually suffer the manifestations of electro-hypersensitivity (EHS). (34) EHS is a devastating allergic, auto-immune-like condition in which over-irradiated persons become severely sensitive to both chemical and electromagnetic pollution.
Similar to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, EHS symptoms can be so disabling that victims are often forced to isolate themselves from even the smallest electromagnetic fields. Within two minutes of microwave phone exposure, the electrical activity of a child’s brain is abnormally altered for up to one hour.
(39) British radiation expert Dr. Gerald Hoyland reported that cell phones which use repetitive, pulsing 2 Hz and 8.34 Hz frequencies can badly disrupt the delta and alpha stabilization process in a child’s developing brain. Dr. Hoyland confirmed that cellphone energy can cause radical changes in human mood and behavior.
(41) This is the case because microwaves at cellphone levels can unleash a cornucopia of radical damage to all parts of the brain, including the cortex, the hippocampus (memory center) and the basal ganglia. Scientists have demonstrated that cellphone radiation causes immediate blood flow changes in the brain, and also deregulates calcium efflux from brain cells, causing cell membranes to weaken and leak.
British researchers have shown that weak microwave radiation can change the shape of brain proteins into formations resembling pathological fibrils associated with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Disease. Millions of American kids, struggling with physical disabilities and mental manias, are heavily irradiated not only with Windows, but also by ubiquitous environmental transmitters needed to feed those toys.
Nearly 200,000 cell tower and rooftop transmitters continuously saturate American cities, playgrounds and passing vehicles with DNA-damaging waves equivalent to ionizing radiation. Living in transmitter-zapped neighborhoods where microwaves pass easily into homes, millions of infants and small kids have no respite from daily, deadly radiation assault.
Unregulated Wi-Fi systems, wireless local area network routers, security monitors, cordless phone systems and other types of wireless transmitters X-ray the interiors of malls, airports, offices, schools, hospitals and millions of homes 24/7. These and retail inter-personnel push-to-talk radio systems literally “cook” stores and malls where kids congregate.
Soon, commercial aircraft will offer Wi-Fi computer services, compelling all passengers to absorb the toxic rays of mid-flight entertainment. The federal government has never developed adequate safety standards for long-term environmental exposure to this barrage of wireless radiation.
Having compiled the weight of evidence from thousands of studies, these experts conclude that current exposure standards must be drastically revised because they are absolutely NOT protective of the public health.
