"Although autism spectrum conditions (ASCs) are defined behaviorally, they also involve multileveled disturbances of underlying biology that find striking parallels in the physiological impacts of electromagnetic frequency and radiofrequency exposures (EMF/RFR). Part I of this paper will review the critical contributions pathophysiology may make to the etiology, pathogenesis and ongoing generation of core features of ASCs. We will review pathophysiological damage to core cellular processes that are associated both with ASCs and with biological effects of EMF/RFR exposures that contribute to chronically disrupted homeostasis. Many studies of people with ASCs have identified oxidative stress and evidence of free radical damage, cellular stress proteins, and deficiencies of antioxidants such as glutathione. Elevated intracellular calcium in ASCs may be due to genetics or may be downstream of inflammation or environmental exposures. Cell membrane lipids may be peroxidized, mitochondria may be dysfunctional, and various kinds of immune system disturbances are common. Brain oxidative stress and inflammation as well as measures consistent with blood-brain barrier and brain perfusion compromise have been documented. . . .
"Various vital but vulnerable mechanisms such as calcium channels my be disrupted by environmental agents, various genes associated with autism or the interaction of both. With dramatic increases in reported ASCs that are coincident in time with the deployment of wireless technologies, we need aggressive investigation of potential ASC - EMF/RFR links. The evidence is sufficient to warrant new public exposure standards benchmarked to low-intensity (non-thermal) exposure levels now known to be biologically disruptive, and strong, interim precautionary practices are advocated. . . .

DARIUSZ LESZCZYNSKI, PHD
" . . . Any person, scientist or non-scientist, before claiming that there is no risk from cell phone radiation
and dismissing the science as bogus, should remember that it is necessary to study all possible
options of effects before making such statements - option of co-effects of cell phone radiation and
chemicals was not studied yet.
"In conclusion, I consider that currently the scientific evidence is sufficient to classify cell phone radiation as a probable human carcinogen - 2A category in IARC scale. Time will show whether 'the probable' will change into' the certain'. However, it will take tens of years before issue is really resolved. In the mean time we should implement the Precautionary Principle. There is a serious reason for doing so."
Experimental Study: Electromagnetic interference of external pacemakers by walkie-talkies and digital cellular phones

with regards to Scientific Review of Draft Safety Code 6 (2014), Canada's Safety Guidelines for Safe Exposure to Radiofrequency/Microwave Radiation (submitted by Margaret Friesen M.Sc.)
" . . . At least 140 studies are missing from Health Canada's rationale document and literature review, as well as the report from the Royal Society of Canada and the largest, most recent European review. Of these 140 studies, 103 studies (74%) were submitted by C4ST to Health Canada in 2013, yet were still omitted.
"The scientific basis of Safety Code 6 is clearly in disarray. Meanwhile, C4ST regularly hears from Canadians who report being sickened and disabled by exposures to radiofrequency/microwave radiation. The immediate response should be to take measures to ensure that exposures are recognized, and As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA). This involves public education, training of medical personnel, minimization of use of wireless technologies in schools and workplaces, safe areas for those with EHS (and to prevent development of EHS), safer technological advancements and more. We present some preliminary recommendations to accomplish this. . . .

"In this Radio-Canada interview (in French) Dr. Belpomme has stated "Electrosensitivy is a Pre-Alzeheimer's state".
"We wonder, then, if this is the case, whether society is ready for the possible explosion in Alzheimer's from the progression of Electrosensitivity Syndrome (EHS), now impacts 8-10% of people in Europe and that is projected to increase significantly in the near future.

About the Author
The main fields of activity of Dr. rer. nat. Ulrich Warnke, and internationally renowned bio-scientist of the University of the Saarlan, are in bio-medicine, environmental medicine and bio-physics. His research has, for many decades, focused especially on the effect of electromagnetic fields.
Addressed to Medical Professionals. Useful to all. Updated July 19, 2014
The following package is for those who wish to approach their doctors with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiation. It contains links organized into specific health effect categories. These links can be printed out according to personal areas of need or concern, and used to start a dialogue with doctors who may not as yet have associated certain health conditions with EMF or RF exposure.
The introductory letter on pages 1 and 2 contains a link to the entire list, and may be useful to your doctor as a reference tool.
"Dear Medical Professional:
"Your patient has asked us for support in providing you with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation, recently reclassified by the WHO/IARC as a Class 2B, possible human carcinogen.
"This WHO risk category also includes lead, DDT, chloroform, and dioxane, and is relevant to all wireless devices emitting radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, including cordless phones, cell phones, IPads, Wi-Fi routers, wireless games, baby monitors, and smart meters . . .
"Many doctors have already given medical advice to their patients by way of a medical letter or note on a prescription form stating that the patient should avoid, for medical reasons, living in a residence or residential complex at which a wireless meter is operating in order to maintain their health or avoid aggravating a medical condition. This medical advice stating the health condition and advising the patient that they should avoid ongoing exposure to wireless radiofrequency and smart meter emissions will allow your patient to participate in the Human Rights Action currently underway. We are hopeful that the individual's right to protect their health as advised by their medical doctor will be upheld by the Human Rights Tribunal, and this forced exposure within their own home to undesirable microwave radiofrequency emissions will be replaced with reasonable and respectful accommodation by BC Hydro . . .

Dr. Andrew Goldsworthy: Is a 300 percent increase in Crohn's disease the result of our escalating exposure to wireless technologies? (June 26, 2014)
Stop Smart Meters! (UK) - London, UK - 26 June 2014
Guest Post: by Dr Andrew Goldsworthy
"You may have seen recent reports of a 300% increase in Crohn's disease, such as this article in the Independent.
"Possible explanations for the rising trend include the use of antibiotics and the availability of junk food; but corresponding evidence for these contentions are thin and do not correlate well to the time-scale of ten years. What fits better, in fact, is our increased exposure to RF/microwaves emissions, such as those from mobile phones and WiFi, which have increased dramatically over the last ten years. The likely mechanisms for harm are electromagnetically-induced inflammation, as experts such as Professor Olle Johnasson of Sweden's Karolinska Institute have pointed out on many occasions. . . .
