from recent Omega newsletter
Dear Mr Rudolph;
In the recent Omega newsletter, which I received just today (5
February), I have found with interest the following brief note signed
by Don Maisch:
..."Occupational exposure to RF/MW and "Microwave sickness" (excerpt)
Some months ago I was contacted by the Trade Union responsible for
Australian crane operaters. They are receiving many concerns about
health problems from crane operaters who were working at elevations
close to active microwave antennas, such as mobile phone antennas on
top of buildings.
From our discussions it was
apparent that there seemed to be a connection with health complaints
and working in close proximity to antennas. The symptoms were the same
as those listed under the condition of "microwave sickness" in the
Russian medical literature."...
I would be obliged to you for receiving more details about the symptoms
and complaints which occured in the Australian crane operators and were
related by them to radiation from mobile phone antennas. Perhaps an
e-mail contact with Don Maisch would be helpful. We work for years on
occupational exposure to microwave radiation and the above informations
would be of great interest for us.
Best wishes. Sincerely yours,
Prof. Dr med. Stanislaw Szmigielski,

Epidemiology, Warsaw, Poland.

years old boy-against mobile mast!
Dovercourt: George, 12, takes on
firm over scheme for mast
A schoolboy has objected to a
planned mobile phone mast, claiming it is against his human rights.
George Noble has written a letter objecting to Hutchison 3G UK's plans
to use the Kingsway Hall, Dovercourt. George, 12, of Kingsway, lives
only 40 yards from the listed building.
In a letter to Tendring Council
he said: "As I use my bedroom, not only to sleep in but to study and
spend leisure time, I and any of my friends who visit will be
constantly bombarded with these rays. I think this is against my human
rights. "The Convention of Human Rights of the Child (1989) states I
have a right to protection and a right to live without fear of harm.
"Some of my friend's parents
have already said that if the antenna is put in to Kingsway Hall my
friends will not be allowed to sleep over or spend any length of time
in my home. Do you think this is fair?"
He added he thought a listed
building was supposed to be protected from change.
Residents have formed an action
group to protest against the plan and also started collecting
signatures on a petition.
Harwich Town Council has
objected to the scheme but Tendring Council has the last word. Last
year it rejected a similar application.
Mike Davies, a spokesman for
Hutchison 3G, said the equipment met with all the required scientific
standards. He added that the new generation of phones which the
equipment supported were like broadband in your pocket and offered
Harwich residents use of the most modern mobile phones.
He said the company, which is
loosely linked to Hutchison Ports, did have other equipment in the
port's area but it was not powerful enough to cover Dovercourt town

The study of Salford et al is
already a replication (exactly confirmation in fact) of study of Tore,
Aubineau in the French COMOBIO project. (Tore et al BEMS 2001). In the
French study the limit of effect was: 0.5 W/kg (brain average) but
animals were killed just after the exposition. int the Salford study
the lower effect (not a limit !) was for 0.001 W/kg (but for whole body
average) for animals killed 30 or 60 days after exposition.
In the Salford study the lower
exposition is 0.24 W/m2 !!!! how many persons near a base station have
this power ?

Messages from Don Maisch
Correspondence with Hans-Ullrich
Balzer in relation to the Russian medical literature on EMF exposure
and immune system dysfunction, characterised by the conditions Chronic
Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS).
Dear Don Maisch
Regarding your interest of the
influence of EMF on patients suffering CFS we can affirm, that similar
effects like CFS were described in many Russian investigations, which
are mentioned in our study. Because CFS was unknown at that time in the
CIS (Soviet Union), only the effects were mentioned and it was named a
lot of times as Neurovegative Asthenia.
Concerning the difference you
have seen between CFS and EHS we think, that the EHS behaviour is
similar to the so called unspecific Hypersensitivity, which we found
out in our patients suffering from stress and sleep disturbances. Based
on our experience in long term studies, we know that Hypersensitivity
can exist for both extended and short periods. Hypersensitivity can be
the first step of activation of body reserves which could occur after
long term activation, e.g. stress influences, or strong stressors
having short time effects.
The CFS symptoms are often
connected with depressive states, hypotonia a. o. In the vegetative
emotional behaviour the depressive state is described by a loss of body
reserves. Concerning your information about the differences between
dream behaviour of patients with CFS and EHS we think, that this could
be effected by an overload of the CNS followed by hyperactivation in
case of Hypersensitivity and following blockage of the memory function
of the CNS.
At the moment, the CFS condition
is not the main task in our research. But we also think, that many of
our patients could suffer from CFS, which in some cases could be based
on EMF-influences. In Germany up till now we didn't have any special
test for determination of CFS and of course there is no test to
determine the EMF influence on CFS. Usually there is a whole test
procedure for determination of CFS by excluding other kinds of
In 96 we proposed to the
University in Munich to perform a CFS-Study using our experience in
chronobiology, sleep research and stress research. Unfortunately this
study was not performed. In 97, as you know, we studied the Russian
literature on the influence of EMF exposure with human beings and
animals. Since 90 we have developed a special stress test in order to
determine the stress levels of human beings. This test procedure was
performed till now in more than 1000 cases. We think, that such test
procedure (measurement of psycho-physiological parameters) could be a
good instrument in order to determine CFS, because we can measure the
so called unspecific Hypersensitivity too.
on the Russian Medical EMR literature (Part 4)
1. Clinical and occupational health aspects of long term EMF exposure
Here we have mainly large scale
medical (occupational health) investigations at the workplace, in the
style of field studies
In this segment of the review a
total of 60 papers ( 1960 - 1985) were included. In 23 of them were
data given about the numbers of investigated persons. In total: 3549
patients and 477 healthy persons as control. In the other papers no
numbers were given.
As cause of effect were given
primarily EMFs common in the industry, as such from radar and
high-voltage transmission line. It was distinguished between permanent,
intermittend and in given periods (weeks/days) of only temporary
exposure to radiation
The long term effects have been
given from 200 hours up to 20 years. Most of the investigations deal
with an exposure period of >3 years (on average 9 years). The age of
the patients ranged from 26 to 60 years.
The EMF-exposure was partially
in the range of the allowed set standard limits, but in some cases also
5 to 10 times above those.
As it can be deducted form the
papers, the type of EMF as well as the limits are not the dominant
factor in the genesis of chronic diseases but the exposure in years, if
the irradiation was several hours a day (2- 8 h) Short term EMF
irradiation of about 10 min a day showed even with repeated application
no significant bio-active effects.
While in about half of the
papers concrete data are given such are missing in the other half or a
only given in approximation, e.g. "several 1000 patients". We also
found summarizing reports on the clinical symptomatic of EMF effects of
investigation over several years e.g. the years 1960 -1964 without any
specific numbers. This actually means that the number of cases is
higher than the above given count.
As the dominant symptomatic, the
hypotonia related neuro-vegetative astenia syndrome been named as a
consequential long term effect of EMF exposure.
Drogitschina and Stadtschikov
(1964) categorised in 5 syndromes, that were used frequently:
1) Angio-dystonia syndrome:
Disorders of the blood and lymph and their associated organs and
2) Asthenia syndrome: Loss of
strength or energy.
3) Asthenia-vegetative syndrome:
A combination of the above. It is described as a progressive weakness
or wasting of the body.
4) Di-encephalic syndrome:
Inflammation of the tissues under the forebrain which contains the
thalamus, hypothalamus, hippo campus etc., all of which control all the
major functions or vital organs of the body (Viscera, muscle, heart,
heat regulation, etc.)
5) Vegetative syndrome: Becoming
passive, wasting of body and mind,
loss of voluntary body functions.
1.2. Objective diagnoses
As main symptoms of long term
exposure mostly starting with the 3 year of exposure and afterwards
intensifying in effect with the growing number of years of exposure
(often termed "years of service") and occuring more frequently, the
following were listed:
- Neurasthenia, neurotic symptoms
- arterial hypotonia - Bradycardia or Tachycardia
- vagotonic change of the heart & circulatory systems
- EEG changes, (deterioration of the Alpha rhythm to Theta-, in some
case Delta-rhythm )
- Over-activity of the thyroid
- Sexdrive disfunctions
- malfunctions in the hypothalamic-pituitary-suprarenal gland cortex
- digestive disturbances
- sleep disturbances
- slow down of the sensor motoric
- tremors in fingers
- and more.
1.3. Subjective complaints
- exhaustion, fatigue
- inability to concentrate
- breaking into sweats
- short temper in hypotonic situations, especially under stress
- pain of the heart
1.4 Diagnoses after more than 5
years of EMF exposure
Not all symptoms occur in all
patients (at least it is not so stated in the various papers) As an
example the investigation by Lysina and Rapoport(1968) is quoted:
VHF exposure > 5 years - 85
patients - 60 healthy persons as control group
Neurocircultory Distonia - 20
Vagotonic vegetative Dystonia - 14 persons
Asthenic Syndrome - 11 persons
Bradycardia - 26 persons
Tachycardia - 8 persons
no symptoms - 6 persons
In most of the other papers the
dominant symptom named is neuro-circulatory dystonia and vagotonic
condition ( arterial hypotonia with Bradycardia or sometimes
Tachycardia) and a general slow down in senso-motoric, superseeded by
periods of elevated temper, as well as a deterioration in physical and
From the research it can be
further more concluded that the first 3 years of exposure have either
no symptoms or show only a sympatic tendency. In the 3. to 5. year of
the exposure the change into the vagotnic region takes hold.
Von Shuk, Chrupina, and
Kaznelson (1967) distinguish 3 steps of long term exposure effects
(without a time frame)
1. Step: beginning compensative
2. Step: light level symptomatic
3. Step: full blown symptomatic
The first two steps are
reversible - the third is irreversible.
on the Russian Medical EMR literature messages
Thank you for very good
information. I want to say that I 1995 wrote for a conference in
Copenhagen about sensitivity and after I had read about what they did
in USSR, I wrote about what I knew about CNS.
In Sweden some scientists said
that "Hypersensitivity to electricity" came from stress. Companies had
bad organizations and some of the employees suffered of
hypersensitivity when they were sitting in front of a VDU. When medical
persons measured levels of stress-hormones, they found that these
persons had a higher level than others of some stresshormones. But we
could see that these persons could work with computers if we made them
shielded with military equipment. So there was a connection between
their hypersensitivity and fields they were exposed for.
If you have seen the WHO site,
You can also see the discussion about intermittent radio-signals. There
has been a problem for ordinary people to measure this and persons
working with human safety has often measured analog fields up to 400
kHz. When they have measured they have said that "levels are so low
that they cannot be measured". Why? Because their instruments are not
measuring the higher frequencies or digital signals. But the
hypersensitive persons have noticed these fields. So it is interesting
to see the Russian reports. I hope someone will give the needed money
to translate the rest of these articles from Russian language to
As You knew there has been
investigations about the BBB (Blood Brain Barrier) here in Sweden, as
you saw in their latest report there is a growing understanding in how

Interactive effect of chemical
Thank you for your continuing
daily news letters.
Regarding your posting of Tuesday 4th. February "Interactive effect of
chemical substances and occupational electromagnetic field
This is to be expected. There is
a duality between chemical structure and electromagnetic frequencies.
If this was not so, chemical analysis by spectroscopy would be
The spectra associated with
chemical bonds come in the regions far-infra-red infra-red, visible,
ultraviolet. However, living systems are coherent systems having a
long-range coherent order. Within a coherent system the constant
parameter becomes the coherence length. This means that there can be
interacting frequencies proportional to any velocity with which the
coherence can propagate within the domain of coherence. One such
frequency is the velocity of light 300 Mm/s, another is of the order of
1 m/s which is the velocity with which the coherence propagates when it
interacts with the entire mass of the coherence domain. Thus, there can
be chemical spectra interactions with frequencies in the ratio
3E8-to-1, that is down in the RF and ELF.
Some EM hypersensitives are
sensitive to frequencies corresponding to their chemical exposure. The
endogenous frequencies of their acupuncture meridians become entrained
to the chemicals' frequency signatures. T-lymphocytes cultured with an
environmental chemical show modifications to their cell cycle and
frequency entrainment to that chemical. The frequency emission pattern
of my mobile phone is a good match to endosulfan sulfate - a neurotoxin
with no known antidote.
Regards to all,
someone help Michael Abel?
But I really want to know about specifically and nothing else:
SPAIN TOWERS REMOVED over 2000 of them! Where? When? Who ordered? How
many? What was needed to get this removal?
Also the Switzerland towers removed. Where? When? Who ordered? What was
needed to get them removed? How many removed.
Please may I have a specific list of the Cities these were removed from?
I do not need any more scientific studies - Thanks!
