The effects of RF signals on medical implants

Gary Olhoeft, PhD, geophysicist and electrical engineer - excerpted from An Electronic Silent Spring

"I have Parkinson's Disease. In 2009, I had a Deep Brain Stimulator (DBS) implanted in my brain. It completely replaces the pharmaceuticals I took for fifteen years, which caused increasingly unpleasant side effects. My Medtronics manual says that a cell phone must be at least 20 inches away from me with a SAR of no more than 1.8. Held near my head, the phone's SAR can't be more than 0.25 for 15 minutes. Otherwise, according to Medtronics, it will cause dangerous heating of my implant. If the implant gets too hot, it will malfunction, my brain could be injured, or I could die."

"The Medtronic manual for my deep brain stimulator (implanted to ease effects of Parkinson's) lists more than sixteen pages of potential electro-magnetic interferences. . . .

 "Wireless radiation causes health problems in many ways. One that few people know about is interference with medical devices. Imagine someone with a deep brain implant or an insulin pump having to live in a home with a $$smeter. They could suffer seriously.

 "The National Institute of Health estimates that twenty-five million Americans now have implanted medical devices. Besides brain stimulators, the functioning of cardiac pacemakers, insulin pumps, cochlear implants and bone stimulators can also be disturbed by RF signals." . . .

"Cell Phone radiation damages the reproductive organs as detailed by Dr. Devra Davis. More than one hundred physicians, scientists and public health professionals from around the world have joined together to express their concern about the risk that wireless radiation poses to pregnancy and to urge pregnant women to limit their exposures. http://www.babysafeproject.org/



UK experts say we can expect this next generation of youngsters exposed to iPads, cordless phones w base stations, baby monitors, Wi-Fi and wireless games to have damaged reproductive organs and show signs of early-onset ALZHEIMERS by their 30's and 40's. THIS MEANS DOUBLE-CARE, as we look forward to retirement, caring for AGING PARENTS AND AGING CHILDREN. What a price to pay, for a little convenience!

A simple way to cut cancer costs by 30%!

Cancer and FM-transmitters in Europe (Orjan Hallberg)

Stockholm, December 24, 2015: An analysis of data from 24 European countries, published by Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, reports that cancer risks are significantly associated with the density of horizontally polarized FM radio transmitters such as those found in Sweden. This is the first study ever published about this strong association. . . 


Update for your information regarding Orjan Hallberg, the author of this study and many others: 

"One of the most respected and dedicated scientists who has studied wireless radiation for decades died recently. Prior to 2002 he was working for Ericsson wireless. When he was told to stop publishing articles about the health effects of microwave radiation, he quit and worked independently. He was still working on this important issue right up to the time of his death. Some of his colleagues have circulated some of his studies and reports. (Available on this website). "It is too early to predict future rates of brain cancer, but these preliminary findings suggest that we should prepare for about a doubled brain cancer incidence rate and possibly as high as 25 times the incidence we have today. One result of such a worldwide increase in brain cancers would be a dramatic shortage of neurosurgeons leading to increased mortality. Any statement about harmless cell phones based on only 5-10 years of use has no scientific basis due to the long latency times involved. 

The Potential Impact of Mobile Phone Use on Trends in Brain and CNS Tumours (Hallberg)

 "And just a month before he died, this article was published, warning about that FM transmitters have been linked to melanomas, and a change in the antenna could prevent this. Stockholm, December 24, 2015: An analysis of data from 24 European countries, published by Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, reports that cancer risks are significantly associated with the density of horizontally polarized FM radio transmitters such as those found in Sweden. This is the first study ever published about this strong association. . .

An Exponential Melanoma Trend Model

Orjan Hallberg - Sweden

Hallberg Independent Research, Brattforsgatan 3, 123 50 Farsta, Sweden

 "Abstract: The present study investigated whether whole population exposure to radiation introduced by radio broadcasting and cell phone systems might explain recent increases in melanoma trends in Nordic countries or not. Trends were modeled using a single exponential function of the time each age group has been living in the new environment since an environmental change took place. The results clearly show that melanoma incidences started to increase exponentially by the time lived as an adult since 1955 and that a second trend break occurred in 1997. We searched best fit between calculated and reported age-standardized rates by parameter variation, and compared calculated with reported age-specific rates without further parameter adjustments. Local variations of breast cancer, lung cancer and all cancers together significantly correlated with corresponding local melanoma rates in Sweden. Increasing cancer trends since around 1997 seem related to a population covering environmental change effective from early 90's. We conclude that this exponential trend model can be a useful tool in understanding responses to sudden environmental changes. . . .

 " . . . The main conclusion from this model study is that there is a risk that we will encounter fast and expensive increases in the incidences of several types of cancers. Further detailed studies on causative factors behind these alarming trends are needed. If the model projections are correct, we have to face that the population today has already accumulated cell damage that will develop into cancer in the next 10 years. The study indicates, however, that there is a possibility that increasing cancer rates can be reverted and that hospital costs and lives can be saved if relevant actions are taken. . . .

The Potential Impact of Mobile Phone Use on Trends in Brain and CNS Tumors

Orjan Hallberg and Lloyd Morgan - Journal of Neurology and Neurophysiology

" . . . Results: DNA brain cell damage has an average latency time of over 30 years before increased brain cancer rates would be expected. Mobile phone use may lead to a reduced DNA repair function resulting in about a 2-fold increase in brain cancer incidence, or with an increasing rate of initial DNA brain damage from mobile phone use a 25-fold increase in brain cancer incidence may result. . .

Missing link found between brain, immune system; major disease implications

University of Virginia Health System / Science Daily

In a stunning discovery that overturns decades of textbook teaching, researchers have determined that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist. The discovery could have profound implications for diseases from autism to Alzheimer's to multiple sclerosis.

This is groundbreaking information, especially for mind-body practitioners, and has special significance for the EHS, for if the brain is more sensitive to RF, then it increases adverse effects in the immune system. It changes the whole paradigm as to how illness occurs. . . .

Is there a connection between mold toxins that flourish in a water damaged indoor environment and electromagnetic radiation?  

Electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) are invisible areas of energy, often referred to as radiation, characterized by wavelength or frequency. These fields are categorized as follows:
