Health Effects

Similar symptoms of ill health are reported worldwide by people of all ages who are exposed to wireless technologies.  These include cell phones and cell towers, wireless internet (Wi-Fi), portable home telephones, Wi-Max, utility "Smart" meters, microwave ovens, lighting fixtures, CFL light bulbs and other home and business devices and appliances.

Why Autism Happens

autism answers and prevention

The Silent Autism Carriers - autism info

" . . . Based on Coulomb's inverse-square law, the comparative force of RF energy on reproductive DNA between the sexes may be calculated. When carried in a front trouser pocket, a mobile phone is in the order of 20 centimeters in distance from female reproductive DNA, but only 5 centimeters in distance from male reproductive DNA. By Coulomb's law, as distance is increased by a factor of four, electrostatic force is decreased by a factor of 16. In our trouser pocket scenario, male reproductive DNA receives 16 times greater force of RF radiation than female reproductive DNA.

Data Shows Cell Phones Associated with Autism  

"Do cell phones cause autism? According to government data, they are associated. This cell phone autism analysis shows the association, using publically-available CDC and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) data. U.S. states with high rates of cell phone subscribers have much higher rates of autism. This shows use of cell phones by parents leads to autism in children.  

"But not the mother's use of cell phones. A cohort study based on Amsterdam Born Children found that maternal mobile phone use during pregnancy does not increase the odds of behavior problems in their children. This is another expression of Coulomb's law; the majority of new autism cases are coming from men's fragmented reproductive DNA. . . .

Why children absorb more microwave radiation than adults: The consequences

Journal of Microscopy and Ultrastructure - L. Lloyd Morgan, S. Kesari, Devra Lee Ddavis


  • Children absorb more microwave radiation (MWR) than adults.
  • MWR is a Class 2B (possible) carcinogen
  • The fetus is in greater danger than children from exposure to MWR
  • The legal exposure limits have remained unchanged for decades
  • Cellphone manuals warnings and the 20 cm rule for tablets/laptops violate the "normal operating position" regulation.


Computer simulation using MRI scans of children is the only possible way to determine the microwave radiation (MWR) absorbed in specific tissues in children. Children absorb more MWR than adults because their brain tissues are more absorbent, their skulls are thinner and their relative size is smaller. MWR from wireless devices has been declared a possible human carcinogen. Children are at greater risk than adults when exposed to any carcinogen. Because the average latency time between first exposure and diagnosis of a tumor can be decades, tumors induced in children may not be diagnosed until well into adulthood. The fetus is particularly vulnerable to MWR. MWR exposure can result in degeneration of the protective myelin sheath that surrounds brain neurons. MWR-emitting toys are being sold for use by young infants and toddlers. Digital dementia has been reported in school age children. A case study has shown when cellphones are placed in teenage girls' bras multiple primary breast cancer develop beneath where the phones are placed. MWR exposure limits have remained unchanged for 19 years. All manufacturers of smartphones have warnings which describe the minimum distance at which phone must be kept away from users in order to not exceed the present legal limits for exposure to MWR. The exposure limit for laptop computers and tablets is set when devices are tested 20 cm away from the body. Belgium, France, India and other technologically sophisticated governments are passing laws and/or issuing warnings about children's use of wireless devices. . . .

Radiofrequency/Microwave Radiation Biological Effects and Safety Standards: A Review

STILL HOT (1988) - U.S. Air Force Declassified Information

Scott M. Bolen, Rome Laboratory, Air Force Material Command, Griffis Air Force Base, New York


"The study of human exposure to radiofrequency/microwave radiation has been the subject of widespread investigation and analysis. It is known that electromagnetic radiation has a biological effect on human tissue. An attempt has been made by researchers to quantify the effects of radiation on the human body and to set guidelines for safe exposure levels. A review of the pertinent findings is present along with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) recommended safety standard (C95.1-1982) and the United States Air Force permissible exposure limit for RF/MW radiation (AFOSH Standard 161-9, 12 February 1987).

"An overview of research that was conducted in the Soviet union and Eastern Europe is also included in this report. . . .

Microwave radiation has effect on human EEG rhythms - Estonia

Microwave radiation has modulation frequency dependent stimulating effect on human EEG rhythms


"The results of the experimental study support the hypothesis raised: the effect of the low-level microwave radiation has a stimulating effect that is dependent of modulation frequency. We can conclude that the modulated low-level microwave radiation causes changes in the EEG rhythms energy at the frequencies lower than the modulation frequency.

"The findings allowed us to determine the following tendencies:

  • microwave stimulation causes an increase of the EEG energy level;
  • the effect is most intense at higher modulation frequencies. 
"The changes in the EEG rhythm energy level were statistically significant in frontal and tempora-parietal channels for theta and in occipital channels for alpha rhythm frequencies. Individual sensitivity and response to stimulation are very different.

"The mechanism of the findings is not clear and the effect needs further investigation." 

This study has been supported by the Estonian Science Foundation Grant No 5143.

"Our experimental results showed that effect of microwave exposure to 450 MHz modulated at 1,000 Hz frequency was more considerable in a group of patients with depressive disorder than healthy subjects.

"Clinical evaluation of the effect using BAS and VAS tests revealed mood improvement after exposure for majority of depressive subjects (11) and no changes for others (7). The results can be also caused by the factors differing from microwave.

"The EEG analysis based on the ratio of beta to theta rhythms energy showed that microwave exposure produced changes in the EEG for both, healthy and depressive sub- jects and the values of changes were comparable. However, the number of subjects affected significantly by microwave was five times higher in depression group (5 subjects) compared to the number in healthy group (1 subject).

This study has been supported by the Estonian Science Foundation grant No 6632.

"The above adds knowledge to the understanding of microwave effects on EEG and cognitive processes.

  1. The results show that ID and LDLVP methods can detect small changes in EEG signals caused by microwave exposure. Microwave exposure causes most remarkable increase in the EEG alpha power and less increase in the beta power. 
  2. The effect of microwave radiation on the EEG rhythms depends on the modulation frequency and has non-thermal origin. The effect is stronger at modulation frequencies higher or close to the EEG rhythms frequencies.
  3. Sensitivity to microwave exposure is individual, the rate of the subjects significantly affected was 13-30%. 
  4. Physiological adaptation of the brain compensates and even overcompensates the effect of the microwave exposure.
  5. The microwave effect is not linearly related to the applied field power density.
  6. The changes in human performance, due to microwave exposure, in visual memory tasks and visual information processing are small but statistically significant.

My Digital Addiction

Aljazeera - How is our need to be constantly connected impacting our lives and could a digital detox be the solution?

"Al Jazeera's Phil Lavelle is constantly connected, and can rarely be found without his face buried into one of his many mobile devices. He diagnosed himself as a digital addict - after researching the symptoms online, of course - but now feels the need to disconnect.

"We follow him as he checks into a digital detox facility and attempts to adapt to a life without his devices. Along the way, we explore the modern phenomenon of digital addiction. . . .
