Addressed to Medical Professionals. Useful to all. Updated July, 2016
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 . . .

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. . . .
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. . .

Journal of Nanomaterials & Molecular Nanotechnology Cytotoxicity of Iron Oxide Nanoparticles with/ without Microwave Radiation Exposure in RG2 Glioblastoma Cells - Gaza University, Turkey
"Glioblastoma is the most common and aggressive brain tumor in
humans. Gliomas compose 80% of all malignant brain tumors
and are characterized by fast progression and invasive character. In the present study, we investigated cytotoxic effects of Fe3O4
magnetic nanoparticles with/without MW radiation exposure
on glioblastoma cells. . . .
"The results of this study showed that RG2 cells showed cytotoxicity to Fe3O4 nanoparticles at higher concentrations. The decrease in cell viability of Fe3O4 treated cells was dose dependent. In the mean time, combined application of MW radiation and Fe3O4 treatment had synergic effect on RG2 cell toxicity and ROS production. This synergic effect was marked in higher concentrations of Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles. . . .
the role of electromagnetic radio frequency radiation (Brazil)
" . . . This study collected evidence for the association between exposure to EMRFR and tinnitus in some patients, particularly those suffering from electromagnetic hypersensitivity. While it is not fully confirmed, the authors consider it appropriate to direct more attention to cell phone use in the diagnostic investigation of patients with hearing disorders, especially tinnitus. . .
Effects of 900 MHz pulse-modulated radiofrequency radiation - Gazi University, Turkey, 2011
" . . . The results of our study are evident that pulse-modulated RF emissions may act as an environmental stressor and cause oxidative and nitrogenic damage in lung, liver, testis and heart tissues. Oxidative stress is known to underlie many human diseases including atherosclerosis, heart failure, myocardial infarction, chronic liver and lung diseases, infertility, etc. Our results suggested that mobile phone use should be limited. . . .
A light, electron microscopy and immunohistochemical study - Gazi University, Turkey (2010)
"The usage of mobile phones has been substantially increasing and there is a considerable concern about possible health hazards of mobile phone radiation. Some studies actually showed a higher brain cancer risk in people who had used mobile phones for more than ten years (Hardell et al. 2008). The results of the INTERPHONE study suggested a possible relation between mobile phone use (at high exposure levels) and risk of glioma. The risk for glioma tended to be greater in the temporal lobe than in other lobes of the brain. . . .
"Results of this study indicated that whole body exposure to modulated RFR similar to that emitted by GSM mobile phones caused pathological changes in the thyroid gland by altering gland morphology and inducing apoptotic pathways. Morphological analysis of the thyroid gland demonstrated a high prevalence of cell hypothyrophy altered by the modulated RFR. Immunohistochemical results of this study indicated that the modulated RFR activated caspase-9 and caspase-3 enzymes whose proteolytic activities are the key factor in apoptotic execution. Activated forms of them are markers of cells undergoing apoptosis. Our results suggest an association between mobile phone use and development of HT. . . .
