Re: Debate stopped?

Sianette and all,

We are up against huge mony! Of course the industry cannot afford to let
the truth be known. However, the harder they try to hide the truth, and
stifle those of us who speak out, the more the public wants to hear our
arguments. This has been proven again and again here in Ireland. Keep
plugging away. Your message is getting out!

Keep well,

Colette O'Connell



I will try to summarise the thousand or so research papers written over
the last 20 or so years and explain or summarise what happens when the
electric and magnetic part of the wave goes into our bodies.

We being water based animals act like aerials to these waves. As the
waves go into our bodies an electric current is generated inside our
bodies which is how aerials work; waves come in and electricity is
generated. The electricity generated in our bodies like all electric
currents goes to ground through our bodies and like all electric
currents it takes the path of least resistance. Unfortunately the path
of least resistance through our bodies, although only representing 10%
of our pathways, carries 90% of our traffic rather like the M1 motorway.
The traffic in our bodies, namely hormones, antibodies,
neurotransmitters know where they are going because they also carry an
electric charge. The hormones, antibodies and neurotransmitters know
where to "get off" because there is a corresponding opposite charge at
the site of delivery rather like the positive and negative ends of a
battery. The problem is if you have an electric current passing through
the body it can change this charge, either on the hormones, antibodies
or neurotransmitters or the site of delivery.

An analogy to that would be - if you were in Paris on the Underground
system and you could not speak a word of French, but you had a map with
the station name of where to get off and somebody tippexed out one or
two of the letters, you may get off or you may not, and this can happen
in the body. The hormones, antibodies or neurotransmitters may get off
where they are meant to get off or they may carry on and miss their
target. As a one-off this probably would not be very important but
continuous interference over many years it is argued can lead to many

A similar effect is that the destination for some of these hormones,
neurotransmitters, antibodies is a surface of a cell where chemicals
will pass through a membrane into a cell. If you think of a cell in our
body, be it a brain cell, bone cell etc, as having a positive and
negative charge on the outside and the inside similar to a battery the
difference in these charges will draw the chemical into the cell or draw
poisonous substances out of the cell. If the charge is changed on the
outside of the cell, then necessary chemicals may not go in or poisonous
chemicals may not go out. An analogy to that would be - think of your
house as a cell in your body. Essential things like food, water and fuel
come into the house and poisonous things like waste and gases leave the
house. In fact a house is very similar in many ways to a cell in our
body. Now, if we had a blockage and waste could not leave the house or
sometimes food or electricity did not come into the house, over a short
period of time we would survive this, but continual disruption over many
years will probably have a knock-on effect on the health of the
inhabitants particularly if they are young or frail. This is my
explanation of how electromagnetic waves affect our cells.

A final description is possibly the accumulative effect of all the
particles going through the body each second. Each particle and for
TETRA we are talking about 400,000,000 particles a second carries a
small amount of momentum with it. As an analogy, imagine you are driving
down the M1 in the largest lorry you could possibly imagine and you are
hit by the smallest dust particle you could ever imagine. Obviously the
dust particle will not effect the speed or momentum of your lorry but if
you have 400,000,000 dust particles a second for many years they could
if something else was going wrong with your lorry exacerbate the effect
and slow your lorry, and that is the crucial point. All of these effects
I have described are believed to have one final conclusion. They all in
their own way suppress the immune system. When you suppress the immune
system as I will show in research papers, you tend to have more colds,
more coughs, longer colds, longer coughs, longer illnesses, depression,
anxiety leading to suicide or taken to its ultimate - leukaemia.

I will summarise just four of what I consider to be extremely well
written research papers by arguably the worlds leading scientists in
this field. There are other leading scientists of course but I cannot
list them all in this report. I am using these as specimen papers.

When I refer to research papers I am not referring to something that
somebody has sat down one Sunday afternoon and just written. These
research papers have sometimes hundreds of references in the back and
each reference on its own is usually 5-10 years work by a group of
scientists where their work would have been peer reviewed, and in a lot
of cases published. So for arguments sake, if a paper has say 100
references in the back that could well constitute 500-1,000 years
accumulative work.

The first paper (Appendix 2, Reference 2) by Dr Neil Cherry was
presented in May 2000 to the New Zealand Parliament, to Italy, Austria,
Ireland and the European Parliament in Brussels. This paper has 122
references. I have photocopied the references to show that as well as
being peer reviewed, many are published. I will do this with the other
three papers (Appendix 3).

From this research paper some illnesses caused by long-term low level
electromagnetic radiation are:

Heart problems;
Blood problems;
Interference with bone marrow;
Calcium interference;
46% reduction in night-time melatonin;

It is believed that during the daytime light going through our eyes
passes a message to the pineal glands in the brain which slows down the
production of melatonin. At night when no light goes through our eyes
the production of melatonin is speeded up. Melatonin is believed to
scavenge cancer cells and impurities in our bodies and boost the immune
system. If an officer is sleeping in quarters within range of the TETRA
transmitter, the microwave radiation is believed to act on the pineal
gland and suppress the night-time melatonin to daytime levels; hence the
good work of the melatonin at night will be restricted leading to
suppression of the immune system.

Increased arthritis;
Skin problems;
Ear problems;
Risk to leukaemia;
Childhood cancer;
Sleep problems;
Memory loss;
Difficulty in concentrating;
Mental conditions;

A very recent discovery shows that microwave radiation changes the
permeability of the blood brain barrier. Our brain has its own immune
system as does our body. The blood brain barrier keeps everything that
is designed to be kept within the brain inside it and protects the brain
from any unwanted diseases or chemicals which could harm it. Similarly
it allows out of the brain anything dangerous to the brain. The blood
brain barrier is rather like a sieve where only particles of a certain
size may go through. Professor Salford at Lund University in Sweden has
shown that such pulsing as from mobile phones can alter the permeability
of the blood brain barrier (Appendix 4, Reference 3). I will argue as
TETRA pulses, which is arguably more powerful than the average mobile
phone, this situation could be worse with TETRA.

Also, it is shown that the electromagnetic radiation going into the body
can change the size of the particles moving around the body (Reference
4). This is rather like an ice skater spinning on her skates. With her
arms out she spins slowly, but if she pulls her arms in she spins
faster. Microwaves can affect the particles in our body by changing
their spin; hence their size. They can be made smaller or larger. With
the changing of the permeability of the blood brain barrier and the
changing in size of particles unwanted particles may enter the brain or
necessary particles may leave the brain. The connection here with mental
conditions is that Dr Hyland of Warwick University has written that the
uptake of drugs; in particular neurological drugs is inhibited because
of changes in the blood brain barrier.

Neurological illnesses;
Miscarriage; and

I have listed all of the references on this particular research paper
because all of these researches correspond to the above list.

The second paper I would like to comment on (Appendix 5, Reference 5)
has 80 references and as well as a lot of the illnesses written in Dr
Cherry's paper goes on to mention that with regard to mobile phone
handsets you should avoid keeping the handset when switched on adjacent
to the body, in particular in the vicinity of the waist or heart. There
have been deaths due to colon cancer from the Royal Ulster Constabulary
who wore radio or microwave transmitters in the small of their backs for
extended periods of time. Dr Hyland recommends keeping the duration of
calls to an absolute minimum and on his back page relating to pulse
mobile phone radiation on alive humans and animals, the following may

Epileptic activity;
Effects on human EEG;
Effects on blood pressure;
Depression of immune systems;
Increased permeability of the blood brain barrier;
Effects on brain electro-chemistry;
DNA damage in rodent brain;
Cancers in mice; and
Synergistic effects with certain drugs.

Dr Hyland, in my opinion, is one of the world's leading authorities in
this area and his advice is not to be dismissed lightly. Similarly,
another very highly respected scientist is Dr Coghill. I would add that
both Dr Hyland and Dr Coghill are members of the Stewart Committee.

Dr Coghill's paper which has 218 references (Appendix 6, Reference 6)
agrees largely with the work by Dr Hyland and Dr Cherry. In this paper,
Section 1.16, Dr Coghill writes "the ultimate question must be whether
chronic exposure to say 1 V/m electric fields at the envisaged
frequencies is likely to produce adverse health effects in the long
term. At present the NRPB guidelines recommend an investigation level of
192 V/m while ICNIRP now offers much lower levels. However these are
based on thermal effects: if non thermal evidence is accepted than 1 V/m
is demonstrably able to induce biological effects, some of which may be
adverse". I will show in a later paper that TETRA delivers a lot more
than the 1 V/m recommended as a maximum by Dr Coghill.

Dr Coghill also, in his summary in the back, lists symptoms caused by
mobile phone use. Again, I will argue that as TETRA is pulsed and pulsed
radiation is arguably more aggressive than the continuous analogue wave
and TETRA uses more power than the ordinary mobile the symptoms will be
enhanced rather than be reduced for TETRA. The symptoms listed by Dr
Coghill are:

Warmth behind the ear;
Warmth on the ear; and
Burning skin.

My final paper by a very highly respected New Zealand doctor, Dr Eklund
(Appendix 7, Reference 7) which has 37 references shows leukaemia
clusters in and around ordinary radio and TV transmitters around the
world. She says on page 13 that adult leukaemia within 2 kilometres of a
transmitter is 83% above expected and significantly declines within
increasing distance from the transmitter. Similarly skin and bladder
cancers follow a similar pattern. As a scientist I could argue that if
leukaemia's' and cancers are known to exist from ordinary radio and TV
transmitters which take many years to form and radio and TV waves are at
the long end of the electromagnetic spectrum, and it is known that
exposure to gamma rays or x-rays can cause death within a matter of
weeks, a hypothetical line could be drawn from the long waves to the
short waves to determine the length of time or exposure doses needed to
cause such illnesses. Fitting into this pattern would be several years
exposure to sunlight causing skin cancer. There are obvious anomalies
with this; namely personal health, hygiene and all sorts of other
factors, but as a crude estimate I would argue that the further up the
electromagnetic spectrum you go, the shorter the time for the serious
illnesses to occur. The microwaves used by TETRA are above radio and
television waves. Being water-based animals we are particularly
sensitive to microwaves; this is why microwave ovens work. Microwave
ovens resonate the water molecules in food and when molecules resonate
they re-emit the energy they absorb as heat. This is why the food warms
up and the plate does not, because it does not contain water.

The warmth on and behind the ear felt by users of mobile phones is one
type of heat. Another type of heat unknown to the user, therefore not
reported are hotspots within the body from microwaves. These hotspots
are tiny areas in the body which warm up considerably when exposed to
microwave radiation. The problem with warming up areas inside the body
is that a very recent research paper has shown that heat shock proteins
are produced to protect the cells in the body from damage. Heat shock
proteins act rather like scaffolding around a building; they go around
the cell and protect the DNA from damage from the heat. Heat shock
proteins have been known to work when the temperature rises by just 2
degrees. Now the problem with heat shock proteins is as well as
protecting the good cells they can also protect and save from
destruction cancer cells. So, if you have a cell in your body which is
turning cancerous and would normally be destroyed by the body's immune
system, the heat shock proteins will protect it and it will continue to
grow. This work was carried out by Dr David de Pomerai, of Nottingham
University (Appendix 8, Reference 8).

A report on mobile telephones and their transmitters by the French
Health General Directorate, dated January 2001, states in its conclusion
of the group of experts that "a variety of biological effects occur at
energy levels that do not cause any rise in local temperature". The
group ask "is it possible to state that there are no health risks?" and
they reply "No". They go on to say "minimise the use of mobile
telephones when reception is poor, use an earpiece kit and avoid
carrying mobile phones close to potentially sensitive tissue, i.e. a
pregnant woman's abdomen or adolescent gonads". They recommend
hospitals, day-care centres and schools should not be directly in the
path of the transmission beam. Also and very important, they say "the
cumulative exposure over their lifetime will be higher ". The word
cumulative is also mentioned by Professor Sosskind and Dr Prausnitz in
their paper (Reference 9) where they say "an accumulated cellular level
damage mechanism is not necessarily related to the intensity but can
relate to total dose - Hence the averaging of weekly exposure is a
meaningful adverse effect related level".

This accumulative factor puts a very different slant on doses of
microwave radiation. In particular an accumulative level of radiation
can build up very quickly when you receive 400,000,000 waves every
single second. This is why scientists are concerned and warnings have
been issued for people with pacemakers, hearing aids, insulin pumps in
relation to interference of their apparatus from electromagnetic waves.
Warnings are also given to persons with metal implants in their bodies.
These implants can a) warm up; and b) absorb the microwave radiation and
re-emit it at a different wavelength. I have been around the world
talking to scientists and we agree, although it cannot be proved, that
the recent incidents in breast cancers in ladies could be due to the
metal underwiring in bras absorbing microwave radiation and re-emitting
it at a different wavelength into the mammary glands of the breast. The
mammary glands are known to be particularly sensitive to radiation and
they are known to be easily changed into cancer cells.

As a result of using pulsed mobile phones, again I will argue that as
TETRA is more powerful than the average mobile there could be long-term
damage to the eyes of the officers using TETRA.

A union document (Reference 12) printed 4 December 1979 for microwave
transmitters up to 100,000 MHz warns its members of the following
illnesses which may occur from accumulative exposure:

Menstrual problems;
Miscarriage; and
Problems of the eye, heart, central nervous system, reproductive organs.

They say "a false sense of safety may exist and non-thermal effects are
much lower than have been recognised". The TETRA system of 380-400 MHz
is within this range of this union paper. I emphasise that these effects
are not new; they were being reported on as far back as 1979 and further
on in this paper I will show documents that relate to exposure effects
going way back to the early 1960s. A very important sentence in this
research paper states "non-ionising radiation increases molecular
vibration and rotational energies". I will refer to this further on in
this document.

Public Hearing; Berkeley, California

Dear Fellows:

Hope all is well with you. Exactly a month from today, on September
16th, we have our Public Hearing in the City Hall of Berkeley,
California to stop Sprint antennas in our neighborhood. These antennas
are planned in a residential area where two schools and a day-care
center are in the vicinity.

Our battle has been going on for the past nine months. We have
experienced many deceitful actions by Sprint and in some instances by
the City Officials. We believe that some City Officials are siding with Sprint.

In past nine months many of you have been sympathetic and supportive;
our sincere thanks to you.

We would like to ask for your help again. Please send our City Officials
e-mails and let them know how bad these antennas are. Your e-mails have
to go to them directly. Here are their e-mail addresses:

mayor@ci.berkeley.ca.us (Mayor Tom Bates)
spring@ci.berkeley.ca.us (Council Member, Dona Spring)
maio@ci.berkeley.ca.us (Council Member, Linda Maio)
mhawley@ci.berkeley.ca.us (Council Member, Mim Hawley)
olds@ci.berkeley.ca.us (Council Member, Betty Olds)
clerk@ci.berkeley.ca.us (City Clerk)
gourmetghetto@yahoo.com (Our database)

We have gone through hardship and recently have talked to lawyers to
perhaps file law suits against Sprint and the City of Berkeley. However,
we hope to win this case without litigation. That is why your e-mails
are crucially important.

Best regards,

No Cellular during Power Blackout

USA and CANADA reports of East Coast power blackout including coverage


People changed that day, they were polite and helpful, not in a rush,
they spent time with the people around them, including strangers, there
was so much JOY in the faces of the people in eastern USA and Canada
that i thought i was looking at a video from many years ago.

EMF shut off for one full day showed many emf suffers, as long as they
were paying attention to the behaviour change, that they are not alone,
EMF exposure is effecting everyone, and when its shut off... everyone
felt so much better.

People were not sure why, media explains it was relief from not being
another Sept 11, but infact they did not realise that their own body was
free of the emf.

Once everything returns to "normal" there will be some people that WILL
notice EMF more then they ever did before.

For instance a person in their late 30's that has been suffering emf
prior to the blackout, suddenly feels very good that day, and all their
Health problems vanish.

Cases like this will ask why they felt so good on the night of the Power
Blackout, and now once again feel so lousy. They will want answers. The
industry WAS caught by surprise with their pants down showing what they
have been trying to HIDE all along, the truth - that without EMF turned
on, people will realise what emf is doing when it is present, and
realising this -- wont want it restored ever again.

Now they will scurry to prevent that emf shutdown from ever happening
again, but its too late, thousands already have experienced the
evidence in that one single night.

The following News report states that overload prevented cellular
service, yet both ABC and CTV explained that Cellular service was just
simply not available.

Without power they could not run the cellular towers, its as simple as
that, and even with generators they would have a hard time setting
things up before a large number of people started feeling better and
taking note.


Message from Gotemf


Could a US style blackout happen in Australia?

I may be accused of stretching the point. But the recent massive
blackout in the Northeast of the USA, and the reasons for it, should
serve as a warning on the possibility similar events happening in
Australia under a Free Trade Agreement. It's not so much between
Australia and the US but between Australia and the corporate cowboys who
now have free reign under the Bush administration.

Journalist Greg Palast's below article should be warning enough. . .
