Apple sichert sich im Manual für das IPhone 3G gegen gesundheitliche Folgen ab:
s. S. 7 u.8:
Schutz vor HF-Energie
"Das iPhone enthält Funksender und -empfänger. Das eingeschaltete iPhone empfängt und sendet HF-Energie (Hochfrequenz) über die Antenne. Die Funkantenne des iPhone befindet sich an der Rückseite des iPhone in der Nähe des Dockanschlusses. Die Wi-Fi- und Bluetooth®-Antenne befindet sich oben an der Rückseite des iPhone. Bei der Entwicklung und Herstellung des iPhone wurde darauf geachtet, dass die Grenzwerte für Belastungen durch HF-Energie eingehalten werden, "Halten Sie stets die folgenden Anweisungen und Vorsichtsmaßnahmen ein, um eine optimale Leistung des Mobiltelefons zu gewährleisten und um sicherzustellen, dass die Einwirkungen der HF-Energie auf den Menschen die Grenzwerte der FCC-, IC-Bestimmungen und EU Richtlinien nicht überschreiten. Wenn Sie bei einem Anruf den eingebauten Telefonhörer des iPhone verwenden, halten Sie das iPhone so, dass der Dockanschluss nach unten zu Ihrer Schulter weist, um den Abstand zur Antenne zu vergrößern. Befindet sich das iPhone beim Telefonieren oder bei der drahtlosen Datenübertragung in einem Funknetz in der Nähe des Körpers, achten Sie darauf, dass das iPhone mindestens 15 mm vom Körper entfernt ist.
Verwenden Sie ausschließlich Etuis, Gürtelclips oder Halterungen, die keine Metallteile besitzen und einen Mindestabstand von 15 mm zwischen iPhone und Körper gewährleisten."
"Wenn Sie dennoch Bedenken wegen möglicher Einflüsse von HF-Energie haben, sollten Sie die Zeit einschränken, während der Sie das iPhone nutzen, da der Zeitfaktor eine Rolle dabei spielt, wie stark die Belastung einer Person durch HF-Energie ist. Achten Sie zudem darauf, einen möglichst weiten Abstand zum iPhone einzuhalten, da die Belastung mit steigender Entfernung deutlich sinkt".
Live blood testing showing the results of electrosmog
I made a short (2.5 minute) video for youtube on what I found when I looked at my blood under a microscope before and after using a computer and a mobile phone. My blood returned to "normal" after 10 minutes away from a computer. Live blood analysis may be a useful diagnostic for testing people who are electrically sensitive.
Please share this video with others who may be interested in EHS and Electrosmog (and anyone concerned about their health).
Dear Editor: for some time now I've been letting this pass but as a journalist I find it increasingly annoying the misleading PR produced by Telus employee Shawn Hall with regard to his comments on New Denver. Of course, given the formidable legal department that corporation has, I'm sure he stops just short of libel and outright lies but his skills as a corporate publicist to me are seriously in question when he can't get even basic facts correct.
For example, in the recent Globe and Mail article (March 12) on New Denver's cell phone controversy, he states: "Some who have spoken in favour of the tower have been threatened with lawsuits, which runs contrary to freedom of speech," he said. THIS IS FALSE. No individual resident of the community has been threatened with any legal action, nor has anyone's right to free speech on the pro-cell phone side been denied. Letters from both pro- and anti-cell phone sides are routinely published by independently owned local newspaper the Valley Voice and notices from both sides posted around town freely.
Further, the article notes: "Mr. Hall accused opponents of bullying people who want change." In fact, anti-cell phone protestors have been harassed AT THEIR HOMES by an angry, drunken pro-cell phone activist whose Facebook page Mr. Hall is a supporter of. This has resulted in a restraining order from a single mom with two kids who was harassed. The individual has since modified his behaviour.
As to the dubious claim that New Denver businesses are losing "thousands of dollars" due to the lack of cell phone service, there is nothing anywhere in the Globe and Mail article to substantiate this accusation. In fact, in recent ads sponsored by the BC governments Ministry of Tourism, Sport and the Arts, it features a pair of fishing buddies in a remote BC location with the caption, "Want to really get away from cell phones?" with the encouragement to grab the fishing gear and head to the nearest backcountry lake. This is precisely what our Chamber of Commerce has been marketing to visitors to the community.
Having Mr. Hall defame us in the mass media is underhanded and in fact is the real potential cause of lost revenue if visitors stay away due to a perceived backwardness in the community. However, as a destination of choice for low impact tourists?kayakers, canoeists, hikers, backcountry sports enthusiasts, etc. we are confident that it's our very pristine quality and remoteness that attracts visitors.
I am aware of such corporate tactics as standard disinformation campaign gamesmanship. However, I am certain that Telus does not want its corporate image tarnished by one of its employees who could be held to account for false or misleading statements.
Furthermore, New Denver is hardly an isolated backwater filled with hicks who "don't want to enter the 21st century." Communities across Canada and the world have chosen to take a precautionary approach to a technology whose safety is in question, including Charlottetown PEI, yet another community overruled by Industry Canada.
It would be better yet if Telus were to ask the question: What IF this technology were NOT safe for our children? What then? Are we willing to put their futures on the line for the sake of convenience?

Brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer deaths for children in the United States
I know how busy you all are but I beg you to do this ? it will only take a minute.
Brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer deaths for children in the United States. Please read Lloyd?s comments below and today PLEASE call Elana Leventhal ((202) 225-4671), the Health Aide for Representative Frank Pallone, Chairman of the Health Subcommittee.
Please tell her you support HR653 and ask her to have Rep. Pallone schedule a hearing for HR 653 (National Childhood Brain Tumor Prevention Network Act of 2009). If you don't reach her, leave a message. Then please pass this on to your email contacts.
When we lobbied for this in DC last Sept. we were joined by a very pregnant courageous young woman who had lost her 4 year daughter to a brain tumor. We met with many legislators and she told her story over and over again and I cried each time. We were quite successful in DC with many agreeing to co-sponsor it. It has been delayed because of Health Care Reform.
Thanks so very much,
From Lloyd Morgan
Childhood brain tumors Bill
I ask that each of you to place one phone call tomorrow. Call Elana Leventhal ((202) 225-4671), the Health Aide for Representative Frank Pallone, Chairman of the Health Subcommittee. Ask her to have Rep. Pallone schedule a hearing for HR 653 and to give you a date for the hearing. If you don't reach her, leave a message.
After you have made your one phone call, get your spouse, your kids, your cousins, neighbors, friends, and anyone else to call Elana and ask that a hearing be scheduled.
If they don't know anything about this Bill just say childhood brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer death in children and this Bill mandates the first ever investigation into the causes of childhood brain tumors.
Our goal is that she receives more phone messages tomorrow than she has ever received before.
This is our chance. WE CAN DO THIS. WE HAVE THE POWER, BECAUSE WE HAVE THE PASSION
