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.

" . . . What do fried gonads, brain buzz and scary 'senior moments' have in common? Here's a clue: it's that thing in your hand/pocket/backpack, on your desk or beside your pillow--the cell phone or wireless device that seems to have become a permanent extension of your body, an integral part of every moment of your existence, and a tool that feels essential to life itself.
"Yet that wonderful gadget, connecting you to so many fascinating facts, people, news items, apps, gossip and image-defining feedback, may be surreptitiously, progressively chipping away at your health, hormones, sexual performance, brain function and longevity. It may feel like your lifeline, but what if it's actually causing serious problems that you're blaming on something else? What if you're taking sleeping pills, painkillers, anti-seizure drugs, anti-inflammatories or other pharmaceuticals to address something that's being caused by your wireless wonder-phone? It is, after all, emitting a powerful signal that extends for 20-40 feet in all directions around you. Invisible and intangible (to most), yet capable of penetrating cement, metal, plastic, rubber, clothing and human bodies, this radiation is the ultimate silent, stealthy, insidious invader. You'll never see it coming, and it will be the last thing you'll ever think of blaming if you're sick, exhausted, have cancer, become infertile, suffer loss of libido, have ADD/autism, lose your hearing or develop any kind of neurological condition.
"The cell phone industry and Internet service-providers will tell you that Wi-Fi radiation is safe--and we all sowant to believe them so we can continue our addictive love affairs with our phones. But the science says otherwise--definitively, categorically and conclusively--with thousands of studies and medical data now confirming the harmful effects of the radiation that's saturating our urban environments. I could inundate you with compelling scientific data ... but do you really want to know? . . .

O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)
"The Wall Street Journal May 23 spent 3,500+ words arguing whether cellphones should have warning labels--of course they should. Missed was the galaxy of pulsed radiation threats to all and especially children.
"WSJ has thrown a bone to the electro-magnetic field (EMF) threat. But a much better use of the space would have been covering the four hours of detailed, scientific-based research on radiation presented May 22 at the Left Forum in New York. . . .

Berkeley, Calif's "right to know law" went into effect last Monday. This law requires retailers to post a statement about the possible consequences of wearing a cellphone on your body, the same information that is contained in manuals. The cell phone industry is still fighting. Why aren't retailers in Canada required to show similar warnings on labels or signs? People have a right to know.
Berkeley's 'Right to Know' Cell Phone Radiation Warning Now In Effect
Over 700 Studies Showing Health Effects from Cell Phone Radio Frequency Radiation
5-part talk presented by Prof. Christopher Davis, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Maryland (2010)
"Despite an overwhelming preponderance of evidence to the contrary, there continues to be some public concern that human exposure to radio frequency (RF) radiation from cell phones and base stations, even at relatively low levels, can constitute a health hazard. The media seize on any report of a possible health risk based on occasional reports of biological effects being produced by RF radiation, but ignore the much larger number of studies that find nothing. This talk will review the science underlying our understanding of how RF radiation can interact with biological systems and discuss why public concern about the health risk from cell phones and base stations is irrational. The claimed connection between cell phone use and cancer will be examined, and some of the legal cases that have kept the cell phone health controversy alive. A specific interaction mechanism that will be discussed is the possibility of nonlinearity in cells and tissue that might demodulate an RF carrier.
"Christopher C. Davis is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park. He received the B.A. degree (with Honors) in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge in 1965, the M.A. degree from the University of Cambridge in 1970, and the Ph.D. degree in Physics from the University of Manchester in 1970. He has served as a scientific consultant to several US Government agencies and industry. He is a member of the IEEE Standards Coordinating Committee SCC-34 SC2, which deals with RF exposure from wireless devices.

What we know, what we need to find out, and what you can do now
What are the health of mobile phones and wireless radiation? While in Australia has led the world in safety standards, including compulsory seat-belt legislation, plain packaging on cigarettes, and product and food disclosure legislation, it falls behind in addressing the significant issues associated with mobile phone use.

This is well worth watching - lots of well-presented up-to-date information. On 30th November 2015, the Dean's Lecture at the University of Melbourne was given by Professor Devra Davis based around the question "What are the health effects of mobile phones and wireless radiation?". Epidemiologist and electromagnetic radiation health-effects expert, Dr Davis, outlines the evolution of the mobile phone and smartphone and provides a background to the current 19 year old radiation safety standards (SAR), policy developments and international legislation.
New global studies on the health consequences of mobile/wireless radiation are presented, including those regarding children's exposure and risks.

Citizens For Safe Technology
"Wi-Fi: Is It Safe?"
Citizens for Safe Technology is a not-for-profit educational society made up of parents, grandparents, teachers, business professionals, scientists, politicians and lawyers concerned about the exponential increase in public exposure to harmful wireless technologies.
We believe a profound urgency exists to protect the unsuspecting public, especially children, youth and pregnant mothers from unsafe wireless technologies.
