Are microwaves addictive?
----------------------------

The following article appeared in today's local newspaper and I would
like to pose a question to this list - Is there any evidence to suggest
that microwave exposure from mobile phone use may be addictive, such as
stimulating a release of endorphins for instance?

Text addicts in for detox

DETOX clinic to the rich and famous, the Priory is treating patients
addicted to sending text messages.
The upmarket South West London clinic is best known for helping showbiz
identities dry out from drugs or alcohol. But a rising number of its
patients are seeking help because they can't keep their hands off their
mobile telephones.

Until now viewed as a habit that at worst irritates teenagers' parents,
the mobile phone phenomenon has been officially deemed a full-blown
addiction, with dozens being treated for compulsive communicating.

The Priory's addictions unit chief Dr Mark Collins said the problem was
part of a wider obsession with modern technology.

"We've really noticed it in the past 18 months," he said. "There has
been a big rise in the number of behavioural addictions -- and many
involve texting,".

Dr Collins said some patients had spent up to seven hours a day texting.
One had developed repetitive strain injury because he spent so much time
keying messages.

"We have a situation where some people look down on alcoholics and
cocaine addicts but then go and spend five hours in an internet chat
room," Dr Collins said.

A British survey has revealed mobile users are sending an average of
eight text messages a day - up 15 percent on last year - in figures that
mirror Australian data.

Don,

Please see the 'our research on neurological effects" section of the
attached paper. However, addiction is a very complicated process. I am
not sure the endogenous opioid is related to your question.

Mobile phone users 'addicted to radiation'
-------------------------------------------

By Jerome Burne and Sarah Ryle

Observer (London)
Sunday March 14, 1999

Mobile phone users - the scourge of railway carriages and restaurants -
may be unable to help themselves.

A study has found that radiation from mobile phones stimulates a
morphine-like chemical in the brain, making them addictive.

The mobile 'high' is triggered by endorphins released in the brain when
microwave radiation from the phone enters through the ear. According to
an American expert on radio frequencies and health, one of the effects
of increasing opiate levels is that it makes you want to drink more
alcohol. 'The link between opiates and alcohol consumption is well
established,' says Dr Henry Lai of the University of Washington and Seattle.

Public concern has increased following a number of reports suggesting
low-intensity microwave radiation from mobile phones could cause
headaches, short-term memory loss and even cancer.

Fears about radiation prompted the European Parliament last week to call
for all mobile phones in Europe to carry health warnings - a significant
victory for UK campaigners battling to persuade the Government to
recognise potential hazards posed by mobile phones.

Euro-MPs took the unusual step of tightening proposals designed to
regulate positioning of mobile phone transmitter masts.

The Parliament voted 'almost unanimously' on measures which recognise
that the low-level radio waves emitted by transmitters may have
long-term, harmful effects on people.

The industry denies that there are dangers: 'There is no firm evidence
of adverse health effects from mobile phones,' says the National
Radiological Protection Board.

'We liken these attitudes to smoking,' a spokesman for Friends of the
Earth said yesterday. 'The growing body of evidence was ignored because
it was not 100 per cent proved.'

The Department of Health said yesterday it is satisfied with the NRPB
position, but added: 'We are aware of the health concerns and have
commissioned research which is due to be published shortly. If it's a
labelling issue, it will be a matter for the DTI.'

Tobacco manufacturers suffered multi-million-dollar lawsuits from
smokers who proved they were not properly warned of health risks.

To All Interested in EMF effects on and from living systems
-------------------------------------------------------------
Here are three areas of information which may, hopefully, add to your
understanding of some of the effects relating to the hazards and healing
possibilities of EMF/EMR:

Please share as widely as possible.


Dear Jim

........Is there any evidence to suggest that microwave exposure from
mobile phone use may be addictive, such as stimulating a release of
endorphins for instance?....

Don Maisch


1. Don: To my knowledge there is nospecific info to support above
question. I suspect addiction is same as in gambling.....the pleasure
principle, plus reinforcement, e.g., feedback and the continual positive
reinforcement of repetitive habit patterns. Of course there are also the
advertising media and proximity effects of one's peers and significant
others using computers, playing comp games and using cellphones
24/7(which, in my opinion, is a sort of personal feeling of being in
control and doing a "creative act" which makes one feel important in
"accomplishing/finishing something meaningful")

The thought occurs that some recent research seems to indicate microwave
stimulation effects (sharp rise time, digital signals) on the brain, the
"hackers high"*, which may tie in to reinforce addiction thru the
release of endorphins. Also consider the long-term hyperstimulation of
the visual, sound and motion centers of the brain by the continually
changing colors and intensities of images, sound and motions required.
As a child and young adult my principle visual activity was reading, my
motion activity was walking or working on cars, my hearing was the
spoken word or classical music....completely different from the modern
sensory inputs! (I am 72, so go figure!) Technology has moved so fast
since 1975, I feel like living history!

Oh. BTW, on a lighter note, I was thinking about how the status symbol
of today is the cell phone that everyone has clipped on. I can't afford
one, so I'm wearing my garage door opener!! (Ha, Ha!)

*"hacker's high" coined by my wife, Roberta, who noted that when she
worked on computers late at night would move into a hyperactivated state
when inspired by the joys of discovery with the worldwideweb....also,
doing computer games would activate her brainwave speed. She now uses
computer games to activate her energy level in starting up on a sluggish
day. It was noted in a recent TV broadcast here that the counselors at
Univ. of TX have become aware that many freshman students could not
"unplug" and would stay on their computers thru the night to the
detriment of their health and school work (an addictive behavior).

2. See the attachment, which is a very recent 48 page, copyrighted,
unpublished paper by Dr. Haltiwanger, M.D., C.C.N. entitled, "Electrical
Properties of Cancer Cells" (Omega: see under:
http://www.grn.es/electropolucio/ElecPropCancer.doc ). This appears to
be a most useful paper of information, not only about Cancer Cells, but
about other cellular processes as well....and especially the chemical
connections. With the extensive refs, it seems to explain a lot about
How, Why, What, When and Who, relative to the issues we have been
addressing...both harmful effects of uncontrolled EMF's and toxic
chemicals, and the healing effects of controlled EMF's with small
amounts of supplemental chemicals!!

Dr. Haltiwanger is an psychopharmacologist, an orthomolecular
psychiatrist, very much into EMF, liquid crystal & biomembrane research,
especially the electrochemical aspects....a most remarkable person, with
an overview of living system and interactive processes that is unique
(and much needed in these days of overspecialization!).

3. Just returned from a most interesting Institute of Noetic Sciences
Conf. in Palm Spgs CA, where my mentor, astronaut Edgar Mitchell gave an
all-day, post-conference institute, entitled, "The Evolution of
consciousness".

There were a number of very interesting points in Ed's presentation
about aspects of consciousness as related to Quantum Physics on the
micro and macroscopic scale. There have been some very recent (last 5
rears) research in an area called "Quantum Holography" which is the best
explanation I have seen for the fantastic sensitivity (down to the
Quantum level!) of living systems (even some humans!), from
microorganisms to whales, regarding the information content of
geoelectric and geomagnetic signals. Basically, in electical potential
changes and EMFs, it seems intensity of the information signal is
secondary, waveform, resonance and frequency information is
all-important....it is what all life evolved into as a survival
mechanism. The liquid crystal molecular layer mechanisms, microtubules,
and DNA within the living cell seem to provide for info storage,
transmission, reaction and sensing/detection capabilities. For backup,
in addition to Mitchell' website below, please see (thru Amazon.com) the
two books "The Rainbow and the Worm: The Physics of Organisms", by
Mae-Wan Ho, and "Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis" by James Oschman.

Here is an abstract of a paper illustrating the above.

The Physical Nature of Consciousness. What is Consciousness? An essay on
the relativistic quantum holographic model of the brain/mind, working by
phase conjugate adaptive resonance.

by Peter Marcer and Edgar Mitchell

Abstract: The quantum holographic model described provides
mathematically founded specification in terms of physical laws for the
nature of information, knowledge, qualia, intelligence, the self and
consciousness. It explains how a brain/mind, its neurons, dendrites,
synapses, etc may be postulated to work, so as to explain the well known
binding problem. It sheds light on the fact that brains can be so much
more versatile, competent, and efficient than their digital information
processing counterparts, in relation to perception, cognition, language
and intelligence. Further, it provides a methodology, by means of which
to predict the information processing morphology and signal dynamics of
such brains, i.e. their neuroinformatics on various scales, so as to be
validatable against the experimental facts of neurophysiology,
neuropsychology, etc. The paper begins with an explanation of general
scientific principles and concepts associated with the model, and
supporting evidence is described. It ends with a proposal by means of
which it can be further experimentally validated. This proposal concerns
predicting the existence and the properties of microtubules internal to
the axon of the neuron. Such a prediction provides an independent
confirmation of the long held, but still controversial hypothesis of
Hameroff and Penrose, that such axonal microtubules are a quantum
mechanism fundamental to consciousness in higher organisms, such as humans.

To order a copy of the above paper, please visit the website:
http://www.edmitchellapollo14.com

While the above material may be medically complex for some, it is
worthwhile to check it out as much as possible to learn new approachs to
solve old problems...to "think outside the conventional box" as relates
to the nature of life and consciousness. This may help us get the big
picture on why, when, how much and how long, artificial and natural
EMF/EMR radiated from the environment affects our minds and bodies, as
well as what we, and other living systems, radiate into the environment
as information.

Cell Phone Explodes
-------------------
Manufacturer is investigating

Wireless phones have become a way of life for many people but one of
those phones knocked one woman for a loop over the weekend.

Tina McChristian's granddaughter was full of smiles on Monday but her
family had a real scare the day before. Tina says, "I really thought my
car was on fire because there was that much smoke." She says the smoke
was coming from a new cell phone that the family had just purchased two
days earlier. It was sitting on her daughter's lap as they were driving
down the street. Tina says, "My daughter screamed 'my phone exploded.
Pull over.' It sizzled. It exploded. There's a mark on my seat." Tina
says when the phone exploded, the battery blew out of the compartment
and ended up lodged in the car seat that held Tina's granddaughter. She
says, "The baby could have gotten burned. Or what if my daughter had
been using the phone?" Tina says there was absolutely no warning. The
phone was just sitting there. It wasn't being charged or used. Tina is
thankful that no one was hurt but she says she's a little reluctant
about putting a phone up to her ear again.

Tina got the phone at Cricket but they turned her over to Kyocera, the
manufacturer of the phone. She's waiting to hear back from them about
replacement of the phone and possibly the car seat. Six on Your Side
contacted Kyocera headquarters and they released a statement saying that
they are aware of the incident and are currently investigating the
matter. They add that the safety of their products is of utmost
importance to them.

Cigarette smoke contains radioactive polonium; Go-ahead for CA lawsuit
based on chemical exposure

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Klaus: Yet another reason for supporting the forthcoming (from
01/01/04) legal ban on cigarette smoking in Irish bars and restaurants
featured in an October 4 letter to THE IRISH TIMES. Its third point of
five reads "3. Cigarette smoke contains radioactive polonium and so is a
radiation hazard. Very few smokers realise this."

Onto something different: You may have already featured this update on a
CA legal case centered on cancer causing exposure to chemicals, but just
in case it was missed I'll quote what was published in the IRISH
EXAMINER (Thursday, 02/10/2003, page 13). "LAWSUIT PLANS: Two former IBM
employees who believe their semiconductor factory jobs in the US exposed
them to cancer-causing chemicals can pursue a lawsuit against the firm,
a judge ruled.

Superior Court Judge Robert Baines said the cases of Alida Hernandez and
James Moore, who worked in IBM's South San Jose California, microchip
assembly plant for much of the 1970s and 1980s, could proceed to a jury
trial starting on October 14."

SPEAKER NOW AVAILABLE
-----------------------------------

Jerry E. Smith

Author, Lecturer, Activist

Jerry E. Smith is the author of national best seller "HAARP: The
Ultimate Weapon of the Conspiracy." HAARP is the High-frequency Active
Auroral Research Project and Jerry E. Smith's book about it is a title
in the Mind-Control Conspiracy Series from Adventures Unlimited Press,
now in its 5th printing.

He is a popular TV and radio talk show guest. He is now available to
speak to your group!

He will come to your church, college, group, or organization to deliver
a shocking, informative and illustrated lecture about HAARP, or just
about any of the many other subjects he has researched in the last 30 years.

Jerry's easy to understand, down to earth approach has helped thousands
of people understand the many "bad science and worse government"
subjects covered in his writings and newsletter -- these include Tesla
technology, weather control, electromagnetic warfare, electro-pollution,
MK Ultra and mind control, global geopolitics, The New World Order, and
much more.

Jerry E. Smith lives near the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, and so
is available to travel worldwide to talk about HAARP or any of the subjects

covered on his website: http://www.jerryesmith.com/ .


WHAT IS HAARP?
------------------------

Jerry E. Smith writes:

The High frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is the
largest and most powerful Department of Defense (DoD) facility of its
kind in the world -- just what kind of facility it is, however, is the
subject of heated debate.

The government says it is a pure science research station, one intended
to increase our understanding of the upper atmosphere. Detractors are
not convinced.

Some researchers think HAARP is a prototype for a "Star Wars" weapons
system. It may be an over-the-horizon type radar ... or it may exist to
destroy incoming ICBMs ... or perhaps to fry out the electronics of
enemy spy satellites ... or it might be used to disrupt enemy radio
communications. Researchers think it might be intended to do these
things because those abilities are all described in the original patents
that the HAARP antenna array is based on. The folks running HAARP deny
any connection between HAARP and those patents, however. This,
naturally, has opened them up to charges of cover-up and conspiracy.
It's not the only thing they seem to be lying about, either.

Once one gets the idea that the government (or civilian scientists
working under government contract) is lying about something, the sky is
pretty much the limit in speculations about what it is they are lying
about. And with HAARP the sky is just the beginning!

Many researchers have looked into what HAARP is really intended for –
and some have come up with some very strange sounding things! Some think
it will be used to control the weather ... others say it could be used
to set off volcanoes, or trigger earthquakes. Still others see its
potential for "Wining the Hearts and Minds" of our enemies by beaming
emotions or commands directly into their brains. And some few even
speculate that it will be used by the New World Order to take over the
world by projecting holographic images into the sky while beaming
thoughts directly into our heads, telling us to accept the new "god" of
their design. And still others think it is part of a planetary defense
system to protect us from invading aliens from outer space. And there
are even wilder ideas about what "they" want to do with HAARP!

I began writing my 1998 book "HAARP: The Ultimate Weapon of the
Conspiracy" with the intent to sort out truth from fiction in the many
claims about what HAARP could or couldn't do. I quickly learned that
HAARP was but the tip of a very nasty iceberg.

I soon learned more about the down side of electromagnetic (radio
frequency) technologies than I ever wanted to know. And that things are
far worse in the Military-Industrial-Educational Complex than even I, as
a "peacenik" from the '60s, imagined. My book became an examination of
two major questions: what is the fundamental flaw in how we fund and
conduct science, and how can a democracy defend itself from its own
military and covert intelligence agencies?


LECTURE OVERVIEW:

HAARP: THE TECHNOLOGY OF TOTAL CONTROL

Lecture by Jerry E. Smith - Based upon the book: HAARP: The Ultimate
Weapon of The Conspiracy

HAARP: The Ultimate Weapon of The Conspiracy was about new technology
and its impact on the health of our planet, ourselves, and our Republic.
This lecture continues the author's research into emerging technologies
and the globalist agendas they could be used to further. It is about the
War on Freedom, The Great War of our time. The material will be
instructive and shocking to all. This is an expos? of more than mere
technological advances or mysterious military machinations, but an
examination of the great forces at play in the world today and how those
technologies will be used. This lecture reveals that you indeed are in
the crosshairs, and what you can do about it.

Areas delved into include:

* The High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), what it
is, where it is and what it all means: The author will take the audience
on a whirlwind tour of radio technology, from Tesla to the present,
laying the foundations for the chilling revelations to come.

* The Revolution in Military Affairs: the military believes that they
sometimes need to destroy a village to save a country; do they now
believe that they will have to destroy our society to save our government?

* Electromagnetic weapons: who are the real targets? Did Congress really
put an end to covert mind control experiments? Is there a connection
between HAARP and seemingly "random" acts of violence - like the
Columbine school shootings?

* Environmental and weather control: is "weaponizing" the atmosphere
just the beginning - will the Earth soon become a weapon? Did Gaia get
drafted?

* Global Geopolitics: the great war of the last several centuries has
been the battle between those who believe mankind should be free, and
those who believe humans need to be controlled. Some have called the
movement to construct a single world government "global governance"
others "a New World Order." It will be shown that there is more than
just one NWO. Several factions are engaged in a worldwide struggle to
establish their version of total global control. We will pull back the
Emerald Curtain of The Great Oz to get a peek at who are the major
players in this fight.

The lecture concludes with what can be done about it. The media owned by
the Globalists daily tell us a world government is inevitable - is it?
Is resistance futile? Can we fight the future?

As one might expect, this talk is tailored to suit the recipient
audience, with emphasis on UFOs for one crowd, or mind control for another.
