Purpose: To analyze the short term effects of radiofrequency radiation (RFR) exposure on genomic deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of human hair root cells.
Subjects and methods: Hair samples were collected from 8 healthy human subjects immediately before and after using a 900-MHz GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) mobile phone for 15 and 30 minutes. Single-strand DNA breaks of hair root cells from the samples were determined using the 'comet assay'.
Results: The data showed that talking on a mobile phone for 15 or 30 minutes significantly increased (p< .05) single-strand DNA breaks in cells of hair roots close to the phone. Comparing the 15-min and 30-min data using the paired t-test also showed that significantly more damages resulted after 30 minutes than after 15 minutes of phone use.
Conclusions: A short-term exposure (15 and 30 minutes) to RFR (900-MHz) from a mobile phone caused a significant increase in DNA single-strand breaks in human hair root cells located around the ear which is used for the phone calls.

Blinde Kälber wegen Antennenmast mit Vorbehalt wissenschaftlich bestätigt
Veterinärmediziner der Universität Zürich haben über Jahre systematisch blinde Kälber auf dem Rütlihof von Hans Sturzenegger in Reutlingen untersucht. Als dort nämlich 1999 eine Mobilfunkanlage mit Antennenmast errichtet wurde, kamen in den Folgejahren über fünfzig Kälber mit nukleärer Katarakt (grauer Star) auf die Welt. Das ist wesentlich mehr als im schweizerischen Durchschnitt. Nachdem die Antenne 2006 abgebrochen wurde, sind keine auffälligen Erkrankungen mehr festgestellt worden. Jetzt liegen die Ergebnisse der Fallstudie in der aktuellen Ausgabe des Schweizer Archivs für Tierheilkunde vor.

An additional approach which has been presented by a retired fraud investigator and police office for Vancouver, is that Hydro is using extortion to put smart meters on homes. They are threatening people by saying that if they do not allow a meter to be installed their power will be cut. A threat that is unnecessary since the analog meters are still functioning and performing their jobs of recording usage. Given all the problems, people have justifiable reasons for refusing, and Hydro, being a monopoly, is using this threat, or telling people they can go off the grid as their only option.

Oakville Police and Firefighters at odds over cell antenna safety
It s become a sorry state of affairs when the police chief of Oakville decides to install cell towers on a firehall property to raise funds for their initiatives. Even though the International Association of Firefighters and the Oakville fire chief prohibit the use of Firehall property for commercial cell antennas because of concerns of health effects from the microwave radiation, this agreement was was ignored. In this video, the careless disregard of human health and shady back-room business deals with the telecom industry are presented.
What is so surprising and disappointing to the citizens of Oakville is that only a few months ago, the town of Oakville was a shining example for municipalities that wanted to establish strict rules for cell tower setbacks in residential areas. Now, it appears that even the government does not practice what they preach to their own citizens.

Subject: Havas presentation about cellular antennas near a fire hall in Oakville, Canada
In March 2012, Professor Magda Havas of Trent University gave a one hour presentation to the citizens of Oakville Ontario Canada that demonstrated the amount of microwave emissions that are emitted by cell phone antenna. The audience in attendance were mostly members of the local community of Bronte that were concerned about 6 additional cell phone antenna that were placed on a tower beside their local fire station.
In this video you will be introduced to several cell antenna studies that show the microwave radiation that is emitted by these towers are harmful to human health. You will hear testimony of one person that lived right below a cluster of cell antenna that had been placed on her roof. Using radio frequency meters, Dr. Havas also demonstrated how wireless household appliances such as portable phones, WiFi base stations and DECT baby monitors broadcast constant microwave radiation that are similar in intensity a few hundred meters away from a large cell phone tower.

Not surprisingly, the older the woman, the higher the prevalence of infertility. Yet infertility appears to be rising among younger women as well, the study finds. In 1984, about 5% of couples with a female partner age 18 to 29 were infertile. By 2009-10, the prevalence for the same age group ranged from seven to 13.7%.
Threatened fertility: Is male sperm count declining?
Red flags first went up in the 1990s on the possibility of sperm decline with the publication of a controversial Danish study that suggested that sperm count was declining at such a rapid rate that there would be little left in 50 years. Dr. Shanna Swan, a reproductive epidemiologist at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City analyzed the data used in the Danish study and came up with the same results. Then she did studies of her own.
''Transmission range is between 10 and 75 meters (33 and 246 feet) and up to 1500 meters for zigbee pro, although it is heavily dependent on the particular environment. The output power of the radios is generally 0 dBm (1 mW).''
Grayson used handheld meters to measure radiation emitted from three CFL bulbs of 10, 13 and 23 watts and three traditional incandescent bulbs of 40, 60 and 100 watts. He said he was surprised at the results. He called his project, ''Is it a bright idea? Illuminating the dangers of CFL bulbs.''
''Multi-tasking or Multi-distracting: What is happening in our classrooms?''
The situation is ironic. Around us and among students we notice a great increase in depression, anxiety, cyber bullying, lack of proper social skills and short attention spans, yet students are, unfortunately, encouraged by media, advertisements, families, and even our education system to constantly use electronic devices that foster those same problems!

Kaleva, Finland: School in Ylivieska becomes mobile-free
In Finland, a school in Ylivieska has announced it is a mobile-free zone. Children have had to turn off their mobiles in school since the beginning of 2012. The aim is to achieve a more peaceful working environment for the children and to avoid the possible health risks of electromagnetic radiation. Mobile-free schools are very rare in Finland. According to the principal of the school, the health risks are unknown so there is cause for being careful.

There are 2 parts to the smart meter, at least the ITRON openway meters we have (BC). The first is a 920 Mhz transmitter that transmitters info to Hydro. Then there is a second one transmitting at 2.4GHz, and with it is a Zigbee chip the sole function of which is to communicate with appliances that have smart chips. It communicates through the house all day everyday, recording any usage info. for each appliance, and then storing it for sending back to Hydro. This is also how the company can shut off appliances or the entire power to your home remotely.

Potentially harmful radio frequency interference (RFI) has been one of the most serious potential technological obstacles to BPL. BPL works by sending radio frequency signals along the power lines using frequencies anywhere from 1.7 to 80 MHz. Some of the BPL signals can cause interference in licensed frequency bands over 1.7-8 MHz, generally known as HF or shortwave bands. Also, various structures in or near power lines may become radiators or antennas at the high frequencies at which BPL data are transmitted. This can also result in interference with a variety of existing licensed radio services, including ham/or amateur radio operators, public safety, emergency response frequencies, military, aviation, maritime, and shortwave broadcasts. Among others, the American Radio Relay League (ARRA), one of most vocal opponents to the deployment of BPL, opposes BPL as a way to achieve broadband access to the home because it is claimed the technology has a high potential for causing interference to radio communication.67

When Allergy UK says that there is no cure for the millions of people who suffer from the new allergy known as 'Home Fever', I beg to differ and I offer you a suggestion that may cure the vast majority of persons who suffer from this illness. It is obvious that a new ubiquitous environmental contaminant is causing or strongly influencing these new allergies. The most likely contaminant is electro magnetic radiation and, in particular, microwave radiation from wireless devices such as cell phones, cordless telephones, Wi Fi, wireless games, and radiation from outdoor antennas.
My suggestion to persons suffering from ''Home Fever'' is to unplug cordless telephones and use wired telephones, unplug Wi Fi routers and use only safe wired connections to the internet, only turn on cell phones when they are needed for urgent situations, do not use other wireless devices, and shield your home from external antenna radiation. For an even better solution, people should try sleeping with the electricity in the bedrooms turned off at the main electrical panel.
I am speaking from some experience, as I have suffered from electro-sensitivity for the last eight years. When I am exposed to microwave radiation from the above mentioned wireless devices, I suffer from allergic effects, including asthma type symptoms, as though someone were sitting on my chest. Also, testing has shown that my heart rate changes drastically and I develop irregular heartbeat when exposed. There are also many other more subtle ''allergic'' effects that I have experienced. The worst of all the effects was cancer. I am in touch with many other electro sensitive people around the world who report a vast array of allergic reactions.
Every person in the world is allergic to electromagnetic radiation, the only thing that is at doubt is the level of exposure at which this occurs. Most governments and health agencies allow strong exposure levels as their safety standards but these are decided simply by considering thermal effects. They fail to take into consideration the thousands of biological effects that scientific research has discovered at levels of radiation that are below government safety standards. These effects have been reported over the last sixty years. It is the biological effects of microwave radiation that are most likely causing the allergies that your article reports. Many of these adverse health effects are documented and referenced in the scientific publication ''The Bioinitiative Report'', and can be viewed online at http://www.bioinitiative.org .
The possible solutions that I have provided to you are cost free and very simple to try. Results are likely to be seen within hours or days. Please tell people about this possible cure for their illnesses and give them an opportunity to try the cure for themselves.

The Epidemic of Mental Illness: Why?
It seems that Americans are in the midst of a raging epidemic of mental illness, at least as judged by the increase in the numbers treated for it. The tally of those who are so disabled by mental disorders that they qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) increased nearly two and a half times between 1987 and 2007?from one in 184 Americans to one in seventy-six. For children, the rise is even more startling?a thirty-five-fold increase in the same two decades. Mental illness is now the leading cause of disability in children, well ahead of physical disabilities like cerebral palsy or Down syndrome, for which the federal programs were created.

Institute of Chemistry and Bacteria Detection, Department of Public Health, Shandong University, Shandong, China. Abstract
The increasing use of cellular phones in our society has brought focus on the potential detrimental effects to human health by microwave radiation. The aim of our study was to evaluate the intensity of oxidative stress and the level of neurotransmitters in the brains of fetal rats chronically exposed to cellular phones. The experiment was performed on pregnant rats exposed to different intensities of microwave radiation from cellular phones.
Thirty-two pregnant rats were randomly divided into four groups: CG, GL, GM, and GH. CG accepted no microwave radiation, GL group radiated 10 min each time, GM group radiated 30 min, and GH group radiated 60 min. The 3 experimental groups were radiated 3 times a day from the first pregnant day for consecutively 20 days, and on the 21st day, the fetal rats were taken and then the contents of superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), malondialdehyde (MDA), noradrenaline (NE), dopamine (DA), and 5-hydroxyindole acetic acid (5-HT) in the brain were assayed. Compared with CG, there were significant differences (P < 0.05) found in the contents of SOD, GSH-Px, and MDA in GM and GH; the contents of SOD and GSH-Px decreased and the content of MDA increased. The significant content differences of NE and DA were found in fetal rat brains in GL and GH groups, with the GL group increased and the GH group decreased.
Through this study, we concluded that receiving a certain period of microwave radiation from cellular phones during pregnancy has certain harm on fetal rat brains.

Hot tea helps Barbara Domberger tolerate the cold of winter in her camping car.
Recovery in an EMF-free zone
An electrosensitive judge from Augsburg finds refuge in the Wehra Valley (German Black Forest)
Rain spluttered on the roof of the little white camper. Although Barbara has turned up the heater, the cold of winter creeps along the ground and relentlessly wraps around our feet. Barbara Domberger is on a forced vacation in Wehra Valley. The rugged gorge is one of the few havens left for the electrosensitive.
She recall she once still had a few secluded holiday areas where she could retire, but gradually, they have disappeared. ''The digital network is currently our biggest problem,'' she says. The 43-year-old District Judge is on the run from harmful emitters, mostly microwaves from mobile phone networks. ''I have become electrosensitive,'' she says.
The judge is convinced: when she is exposed to artificial electromagnetic fields for too long, like those from cordless phones or wireless Internet connections, she gets sick. She feels artificially invaded, unable to sleep and concentrate. ''And all my muscles harden.'' Her family doctor says it is from too much stress.
It took three or four years of suffering before an old school friend put her on the right track, says Domberger. Back then the concept of electrical sensitivity was unknown. That s changed: Domberger has read many studies on her condition and has developed contacts with people who share her plight. She chairs the Munich Society for the electrosensitive and mobile-phone injured.
She is very convincing when she easily refutes the arguments of the mobile phone industry. She knows that many prefer sticking her with a psychosomatic label. If that was the case, then how can one explain that her heart rate changes as soon as she enters a room filled with radiation? Domberger says it is a clear medical evidence.
Fear of radiation dominates her life. The once-successful young woman had to abandon her condominium with 17 a square-meter rooftop terrace near downtown Augsburg. ''The apartment could not be shielded,'' she says. Her furniture is stored. She is looking for a small apartment in low-radiation area, which she could shield with special reflective paint.
She only goes out when necessary. For shopping, of course. But a movie or the theater? ''I used to like going to restaurants,'' says Domberger. Today, she even turns down birthday invitations, because almost everyone has a cordless phone at home. ''I miss the contact with ordinary people,'' she says with a sigh.
Since January 2010, the District Judge is on sick leave. The state of Bavaria is considering putting her on permanent disability.
Barbara Domberger was in charge of the elderly and disabled. She d love to work again. ''Being a judge was my dream job.'' For eight years, she worked at the District Court of Augsburg, and before that six years as a prosecutor, also for the Federal Ministry of Justice. Now she is fighting for electrosensitivity to be recognized as a disease and to obtain help for those affected.
Today she is resting in the Wehra Valley. ''Here I feel really good, as I did before,'' she says with a smile.
Very little radiation gets through where she parked her white camper, as opposed to airports or railway stations. A holiday trip in the hot South? Only by car. For longer trips, she bought a special blouse, woven with reflective silver fiber. It cost her 90 Euros. ''Most people with EHS can t afford it,'' says Domberger who asked us not to divulge the exact location of her retreat.
