Dear Olle: Robert Riedlinger wrote yesterday about the
possibility of Presidential Candidate John Edwards becoming involved in
the EMF issue since his wife, Elizabeth's breast cancer has reoccurred.
Robert's email coincided with a conversation I had yesterday with
one of my brothers. His wife has been battling breast cancer for
many years. Her cancer spread to her liver years ago. She
suspected a radio tower as cause of her cancer.
My brother mentioned his wife is suffering from terrible leg pains
that they figure are probably "restless leg syndrome." He
also said his wife uses a heating pad whether sleeping in bed or on the
I had reminded him that her bed remains up against the kitchen
wall opposite refrigerator and also microwave clock when he brought up
the subject of the heating pad. I had managed to convince his
wife, an RN in the obstetrical field, not to use an electric blanket
but had no idea she would then rely on a heating pad.
I am now wondering how many women are using heating pads for
menstral pain, irritable bowel syndrome, etc.? When curling
up in bed with a heating pad covering abdominal area, one breast or the
other may be either on or very close to the heating pad.
The larger the involved breast, the closer to the source of not only
prolonged heat even on low level (higher than one's natural body temp),
but also the electric currents and magnetic field.
I will be writing to the Edwards soon enquiring as to possible,
close, bedside electrical items or telephone
equipment. Take care - Joanne
