“Many published studies over the past 20 years have shown an array of serious biological effects from low level microwaves. DNA damage and disruption of the blood brain barrier (BBB) have occurred at levels hundreds of times lower than US exposure limits.”

There are a lot of growing concerns about exposure which don’t make the mainstream news. Often people comment that, “if there was a problem with this technology then we would know about it…it wouldn’t be allowed…”
It is shocking to them to discover that within the technical small print of tablets, phones and laptops it is recommended to keep them directly away from the body during use.
iPhone 7: “To reduce exposure to RF energy, use a hands-free option, such as the built-in speakerphone to keep away from your body.”
iPad: “Keep the antenna away from your body and objects.”
Blackberry: “Keep 25mm away from your body when the device is switched on.”
“Three years ago, the World Health Organization declared cellphone and other wireless radiation to be a possible human carcinogen, in the same category as some pesticides, lead and engine exhausts. Since then evidence has mounted that such radiation can profoundly affect human biology, altering brain metabolism, damaging animals exposed during pregnancy and reducing sperm count.” *Dr Devra Davis, open letter to President Obama, April 2014
The following information, which outlines how the different systems of the body are affected by EMF from telecom communication devices, was taken from Dr Devra Davis PhD MPH, president and founder of the Environmental Health Trust – website www.ehtrust.org Their work brings together leading peer reviewed research into EMF exposure and health, with children’s health particularly in mind.
Her previous work has contributed to exposing other leading health concerns such as smoking and asbestos. In 2012 Green America awarded her with a Lifetime Achievement Award for her contribution to raising awareness to environmental health including cell phone safety awareness.
