Cell and Cordless Phones


Cell and Cordless Phones

Cellular and cordless/portable phones, though suddenly and seemingly indispensable in our society, are a direct product of the wireless industry's successful attempt to sell us speed, convenience and entertainment all in one seductive package. In the long term, biologically safe alternatives to wireless cell and portable DECT phones will become necessary, as already they are causing negative effects that impact all living systems.

Wireless Devices Linked to Poor Brain Development

The Baby Safe Project presents: The Science of Exposure



www.BabySafeProject.org

"An international group of doctors and scientific experts is joining with non-profit organizations today to urge pregnant women to limit their exposure to wireless radiation from cellphones and other devices by taking simple steps to protect themselves and their unborn children. The national public awareness campaign, called the BabySafe Project, is being coordinated by Grassroots Environmental Education and Environmental Health Trust, and is based on independent scientific research linking exposure to wireless radiation from cellphones during pregnancy to neurological and behavioral problems in offspring that resemble Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children. The BabySafe Project is promoting ten simple steps women can take to limit their exposure to wireless radiation: . . .

"A Joint Statement on Pregnancy and Wireless Radiation advocating precaution and research has been endorsed by scientists and medical professionals from around the world. The statement calls for women to be informed about the risks of exposure to wireless radiation, and to take precautionary steps while more research is conducted."

An extensive social media campaign including web videos is being launched using the hashtag #KnowYourExposure.

Bra No Phone Zone

Cell Phone Radiation Safety - RF Safe Supports Breast Cancer Awareness

"Strong anecdotal evidence of breast cancer in young women from exposure to non-ionizing levels of cell phone radiation has started a movement - The "No Phone Bra Zone" RF Safe pledges $1 to Breast Cancer Awareness for every RF safe Pink Purse shield designed to block risk of cell phone radiation exposure.

"New York City, NY (PRWEB) December 20, 2013

"It's unfortunate that such young women have fallen victim to breast cancer from conveniently keeping a cell phone in their bra when not in use.

"The invisible radio frequency (RF) radiation a cell phone uses to communicate with a cell phone tower falls into the spectrum called microwave radiation, in fact many Smartphone's operate nearly on the same frequency as a microwave oven commonly used to cook food," said John Coates, Founder of RF Safe http://www.rfsafe.com.

"While the wireless industry continues to clams cell phones are safe, they openly admit not to hold a cell phone in direct contact with your skin. All cell phone users are instructed in user manuals to hold the phone away, at least 5/8 of an inch from your body with some phones. Without keeping this distance between the cell phone and user, microwave radiation intensity can exceed federal safety regulations set forth by SAR Specific Absorption Rate testing. . . .

Wireless Armour: Men's Underwear Protecting Your Health

London, United Kingdom - Premium men's underwear that protects your health from Electromagnetic radiation. Designed for men who live in the modern world.

Anti Wi-Fi boxer shorts are lined with silver to shield your groin from mobile phones

  • The cotton in Wireless Armour underwear is woven with a mesh of silver 
  • The silver 'cage' stops electromagnetic radiation going through the pants 
  • This creates a so-called Faraday cage and shields 99.97% of Wi-Fi radiation 
  • Silver also makes the briefs antimicrobial and keeps them smelling fresh 
  • Wireless Armour underwear is expected to ship in July for 35 pounds ($58) a pair . . .

Mobile phone related epidemiological studies

EMF-PORTAL Hypersensitivity/well-being/subjective complaints

Click on the headline of a column to sort the specific parameter in chronologic or alphabetical order.  Click on a particular author to view the full summary.

Look at the table of EHS studies in this EMF Portal database.  It shows what the difficulty is in finding what causes EHS.  Some of the studies listed in the table are cohort studies. Their reliability is questionable because of the lack of control populations. Everywhere we all are exposed to wireless communication-emitted radiation. Since we do not know what might be the level of exposure that triggers EHS symptoms it is not possible to determine who can serve as control cohort. Furthermore, besides a diverse number of EMF sources in our environment, there is an even more diverse number of other environmental stressors that lead to serious bias in evaluation of the results. . . .

SAR Values (Specific Absorption Rate)

Alcatel, Apple, Blackberry, HTC, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Panasonic, Philips, Sagem, Samsung, Siemens, Sony, Sony Ericsson

"SAR (specific absorption rate) is a measurement of how much electromagnetic radiation is absorbed by body tissue whilst using a mobile phone. The higher the SAR the more radiation is absorbed.

"In Europe, the European Union Council has adopted the recommendations made by the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP Guidelines 1998). These recommendations set a SAR limit of 2.0 W/kg in 10g of tissue. The UK Government has endorsed this limit (following a report by the Independent Expert Group on Mobile Phones) and the five mobile phone network operators have agreed to voluntarily adopt the ICNIRP guidelines for public exposure. All mobile phones on sale in the UK comply with this limit.

"In the United States, the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association (CTIA) requires all cell phones to comply with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) SAR limit of 1.6 W/kg in 1g of tissue.

ATTENTION: Persons seriously concerned about loss of LANDLINES. (FCC/AT and T)

FCC SEEKS COMMENT ON AT&T'S PROPOSAL FOR SERVICE-BASED TECHNOLOGY TRANSITIONS EXPERIMENTS - Deadline April 10, 2014

" . . . Below are some points that you might want to include in your reply comment, then personalize/support them with a brief account of your own experience and your favorite references, which you can also upload for the FCC to read.¨

"No one should be forced to switch from the tried and true safety of landlines to a potentially hazardous technology compliant only with outdated safety limits.¨In a recent letter, the United States Department of the Interior states that "the electromagnetic radiation standards used by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) continue to be based on thermal heating, a criterion now nearly 30 years out of date and inapplicable today":

EMFs & Dirty Electricity INVISIBLE THREAT

The Link Between Wireless Radiation and a Host of Serious Illnesses - Frank Clegg

The longtime president of Microsoft Canada is now our country's leading advocate for wireless radiation safety. Vitality invited high tech leader Frank Clegg, now CEO of the new non-profit organization, Canadians for Safe Technology (C4ST), to update our readers on what Canada is (or is not) doing to protect your health, and what you can do in this election year to protect yourself and your children. Here is a report on his research and conclusions.
