'The Health Effects of Electromagnetic Fields'
Commonwealth Club of California - November 18, 2010
Please see video footage from the Commonwealth Club EMF Program, Nov 18, 2010, "The Health Effects of Electromagnetic Fields", is now posted on ElectromagneticHealth.org. You can view it here: http://electromagnetichealth.org/electromagnetic-health-blog/cc-video/
Radiation emitted by cell phones and cell towers has been linked to DNA damage, cancer, immunological impairment, neurological diseases, impaired fertility and impacts on neurological function, including cognition, behavior, performance, mood status, and disruption of sleep. The radiation is also harming animals and nature, and is as much an environmental as human health issue. The program below from the Commonwealth Club of California presented riveting scientific and health policy presentations about the little known consequences of telecommunications technologies, electrification and new utility technologies like Smart Meters. Important new research was presented on EMF impacts on DNA, heart function and the role of electrification in the diseases of civilization, such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer and suicide.
I would like to thank Camilla Rees for organizing this very important event. Ms. Rees is Founder of ElectromagneticHealth.org

On November 18 a half-day event was held at the San Francisco Commonwealth Club on 'The Health Effects of Electromagnetic Field.'
'The Commonwealth Club of California is the nation's oldest and largest public affairs forum, bringing together its more than 18,000 members for over 400 annual events on topics ranging across politics, culture, society and the economy.
Founded in 1903, The Commonwealth Club has played host to a diverse and distinctive array of speakers, from Teddy Roosevelt in 1911 to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, actor Alec Baldwin and author Christopher Hitchens in recent years. Martin Luther King, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and Bill Gates have all given landmark speeches at The Club.'

Subject: excellent website on smart meters and scientists for hire
Check out this excellent website. Read the articles on scientists for hire.
?Local doctors who have nothing to gain financially are coming out asking for the project to be slowed down,? Boxer-Cook said Thursday, ?while CMP?s hired scientists from out of state are saying smart meters are healthy and dismissing our concerns.?
Boxer-Cook said the majority of the data CMP?s expert testimony cites comes from Exponent, a California engineering company that has come under fire from critics for delivering results that companies want to hear, including providing tobacco companies with testimony
that second-hand smoke does not cause cancer.
?All of the health testimony has come from this firm that has a reputation for minimizing health risks,? Boxer-Cook said.
Senators Snowe, Warner Introduce Legislation to Increase Wireless Coverage
Comment by Alasdair Philips ( http://www.powerwatch.org.uk
Unless people reduce their use of mobile phones, this will eventually happen in every city and town in the world. It is driven by the incessant and almost constant orgy of cellphone use made by people using their mobile/cellphone wherever they are. I agree that the only sensible(?) workable way to deliver this is to install an ever increasing number of micro- and femto- basestations inside buildings and transport.
While people continue to deny the adverse health effects and use and (importantly!) pay for their mobile phone services, both industry and governments will encourage their use and more and more of these small fill-in basestations will be added to the networks. It doesn't even require legislation to make this happen. Many large buildings in London have had both micro and femto cell basestations for some years now.
60% of mobile internet use is from INSIDE buildings??? Is this a reaction to many companies removing general internet access from many of their employees to stop time-wasting and employees secretly browsing on their iphone instead?
We need a change in consciousness in society. One day I believe general cellphone use will be regarded as a worse hazard than smoking. Until we change our relationship with cellphone we will get more and more electrosmog - with or without extra legislation. We are currently in a situation like the lemmings running and falling over a cliff edge that they don't even realise is in front of them.
Scroll down this web page:
and you will find that the AVERAGE USA cellphone user now spends (an average of) 25 minutes per day on cellphone voice calls! (Women are nearer to 30 minutes per day and men nearer to 20 minutes per day)
That is apparently the average based on analysing the bills of 60,000 USA cellphone users for one year (April 2009 - March 2010).
I know a number of people who claim to use their mobile for more than 2 hours every day - a few say "about 5 hours most days/evenings".
This website has some further interesting facts:
