* Know your Repacholi - Mobile mast 'spreading cancer' - Collected Quotations (30/4/03)

Know your Repacholi

Here are two chosen citations of Dr. Repacholi, world health
organization. You can learn more about this guy's technics in front of
senators in the link below. (29 pages)

Senator TCHEN: "But the experiment you did with the pulsing 900
megahertz fields-the impact of that is not due to thermal reaction?

Repacholi: "NO, I do not think that was a tempertature rise. Some people
say it might have been a temperature rise, but I do not believe it".

Another citation:
CHAIR: " If you have already got a brain tumor, why would you keep using
a mobile phone?"
Repacholi: "I am sure they will not continue to use them. In fact, a lot
of brain tumors act very quickly and people die very quickly".

"Even though science shows that mobile phones are more dangerous than
tobacco, they use the fact that radiation is invisible and can't be seen
or smelt like smoke. There are more than 50 patents for devices or
methods to make phones safer that are not being used by manufacturers."

"Wireless Worries. A new study provides fresh evidence that mobile
phones may damage brain cells, especially in teens.'This is the largest
biological experiment in the history of the world,' shouts Leif Salford,
an unusually animated neurosurgeon at Lund University, in Sweden.
Salford's not talking about his own work. He's talking about the 1.3
billion people around the world who regularly chat away on their mobile
phones, 'freely pressing radiological devices to their brains.'

"We have examined whether in vitro exposure of human peripheral blood
lymphocytes (PBL) to continuous 830 MHz electromagnetic fields causes
losses and gains of chromosomes (aneuploidy), a major "somatic mutation"
leading to genomic instability and thereby to cancer. These findings
indicate that the genotoxic effect of the electromagnetic radiation is
elicited via a non-thermal pathway. Moreover, the fact that aneuploidy
is a phenomenon known to increase the risk for cancer, should be taken
into consideration in future evaluation of exposure guidelines."

"We have earlier shown that weak pulsed microwaves give rise to a
significant leakage of albumin through the blood-brain barrier (BBB).
Now we have investigated whether a pathological leakage over the BBB
(Blood-brain barrier) might be combined with damage to the neurons.

Three groups of each 8 rats were exposed for 2 hours to GSM mobile phone
electromagnetic fields of different strengths.

We found, and present here for the first time, highly significant
(p<0.002) evidence for neuronal damage in both the cortex, the
hippocampus and the basal ganglia in the brains of exposed rats."

"In this study we investigated the effects of a pulsed radio frequency
signal similar to the signal produced by global system for mobile
communication telephones (900 MHz carrier, modulated at 217 Hz) on
neurons of the avian brain. We found that such stimulation resulted in
changes in the amount of neural activity by more than half of the brain
cells. Most (76%) of the responding cells increased their rates of
firing by an average 3.5-fold. The other responding cells exhibited a
decrease in their rates of spontaneous activity Such responses indicate
potential effects on humans using hand-held cellular phones."

"Eleven volunteers were exposed to pulsed electromagnetic fields (GSM
standard). The psycho physiological method of assessing the order
threshold (Ordnungsschwelle = OS) was used to examine cognitive
performance. Under the test conditions, nine of the subjects showed a
loss of mental regeneration, as reflected by an increase in the OS, in
comparison with the field-free situation. The results of our experiments
suggest an influence of pulsed fields on the cognitive regeneration process."

"A survey study using questionnaire was conducted in 530 people (270
men, 260 women) living or not in vicinity of cellular phone base
stations, on 18 Non Specific Health Symptoms. Comparisons of complaints
frequencies ... in relation with distance from base station and sex,
show significant (p < 0.05) increase as compared to people living > 300
m or not exposed to base station, till 300 m for tiredness, 200 m for
headache, sleep disturbance, discomfort, etc. 100 m for irritability,
depression, loss of memory, dizziness, libido decrease, etc.

This first study on symptoms experienced by people living in vicinity of
base stations shows that, in view of radioprotection, minimal distance
of people from cellular phone base stations should not be < 300 m."

"Mobile Phones May Do Harm by Speeding Up Brain. Mobile phones may cause
damage to health by speeding up the brain's response times, a British
scientist told a conference on Friday. As consumer concerns mount that
prolonged mobile phone use could lead to problems ranging from headaches
to tumors, a recent study showing an alarming rate of brain cancer in
some cell phone users is helping swing scientific opinion in Britain.

Dr. Alan Preece, head of biophysics at Bristol Oncology Center, is among
a group of scientists becoming increasingly convinced that radiation
from cell phones triggers chemical processes in the body that may be

"Without question, there is a biological threat, the question is how
hazardous mobile phone use is."

"In a study ... in scientific literature, Swedish professors Lennart
Hardell and Kjell Hansson Mild found that people who had used analog
mobile phones for up to 10 years had a 26% higher risk of brain cancer
than a 'control' sample of patients."

"Whilst the existence of non-thermal influences is readily accepted in
the case of active electronic instrumentation exposed to GSM radiation,
the same does not currently prevail in the case of the alive human
organism, which is generally considered immune to any effect other than
heating, despite the fact that, in the case of mobile phone use, the
brain (the most sensitive organ of the body) is, for the first time in
its evolutionary history, being exposed at short range to a source of
both pulsed microwaves (from near-field of the antenna) and more highly
penetrating ELF magnetic fields (from the battery).

In conclusion, and in accord with philosophy espoused by the World Health
Organisation, it can hardly be disputed that to enjoy an acceptable
quality of life requires more than simply an absence of terminal
disease. In this respect, even adverse health effects of a non-life
threatening kind that might be provoked by exposure to GSM radiation
must be considered unacceptable, in that they undoubtedly have a
debilitating effect that undoubtedly undermines the general well-being
of those affected, and which in the case of certain pre-adolescent
children could well undermine their scholastic and neurological

"Hearts are obviously bioelectrical organs. The electrocardiogram (ECG)
is a fundamental monitoring tool of cardiologists in diagnosing the
state of the heart muscle. The heart-beat occurs as a series of regular
electrical pulses. Each electric pulse initiates a cascade of calcium
ions to flood the heart muscle and cause it to contract. Interference
with this regular electrical pulse leads to heart disease and heart
attack of the Arrhythmic kind. We would therefore expect electromagnetic
radiation to cause arrhythmia and heart attack."

"Cell Phone Conclusions:
Cell phones will high probably increase many neurological diseases and
brain tumours over the next 10 to 20 years Cell sites will highly
probably increase miscarriage, many cancers, many diseases, significant
neurological and cardiac diseases and death. Thousands of cell sites
being installed in communities, are significantly raising the exposure
of millions of people to RF/MW at levels that are know to cause serious
adverse health effects. The problems are going to increase unless rapid,
drastic and determined moves are made to reverse the trend and only
install new sites in locations that produce extremely low mean
residential exposures, somewhat less than 10 nW/cm2 (0.01m W/cm2)."
