Radio Waves and Cell Phones

Radio Waves and Cell Phones

Mobile phone antennas emit radio waves (microwaves). The EMF signals they omit are actually quite low, but that is of little comfort if you live directly below or adjacent to a RF antenna.

A bigger health issue are the radio waves and cell phones themselves. Your cell phone is in constant communication with the cell phone masts, and is continually transmitting radio waves (RF) & microwave radiation (MW). This is true even when calls are not being made.

One method of reducing the microwave radiation is to put the phone into airplane mode when it is not needed. If you still need to make and receive calls but do not need data, disable the wireless and data mode (3G/4G).

Use an airtube headset when making or receiving calls. If you don’t have an airtube headset with you use the phone in speaker mode (if convenient) or hold the phone at a minimum distance of 15mm from your skin.

And finally don’t carry your cell/mobile phone in your pants/trouser pockets (near your reproductive organs), unless it is turned off it is constantly sending and receiving MW signals.

Radio Frequency radiation

Radio frequency radiation (RF radiation) and visible light are just two ranges of EMF on a broad spectrum of electromagnetic energy. The electromagnetic spectrum (EM spectrum) contains all known frequencies of EM radiation, from radio waves toward the lower frequency end, through the visible light spectrum, all the way up to gamma rays.

Radio frequency radiation is pretty low on the EM spectrum. Below it, we find extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation, such as what is emitted by the power lines and electrical circuits we use to supply electricity to our homes, then very low frequency (VLF) radiation such as computers/screens. Above radio frequency radiation, we find microwave radiation (MW radiation), which is what your microwave oven and mobile phone uses. Above MW is infrared (IR), such as that emitted by motion sensors or remote controls and then we have visible light.
Collectively ELF, VLF, RF and IR are known as non-ionizing radiation.

It is a long-held belief that the less energetic EM radiation in the lower end of the EM spectrum is less damaging than radio frequency radiation or MW, and x-rays are more damaging than ELF, VLF, RF and MW. This is why criteria for safety standards are different in each range of the EM spectrum.
However we know that even low-energy EMF can cause bodily damage.
A high-powered ELF field can deliver enough current to kill a person (such as a lightning strike or electric chair), while a person does not even feel a low-powered radio signal (such as a transmission from a baby monitor) that is composed of waves that can be a million times more energetic.

Electrosmog is the invisible electromagnetic radiation resulting from the use of both wireless technology and mains electricity.

The most common sources of wireless electrosmog are: WiFi, smartphones/mobile/cell-phones, phone masts/towers, cordless phones, laptops etc.



Ex head of the World Health Organisation warns on mobile phone usage

Ex head of the World Health Organisation warns on mobile phone usage.

One of the world’s most respected people – a leader in sustainability, a peacemaker, 3 times prime minister of Norway – Gro Harlem Bruntland has hinted before that she experiences symptoms of electrosensitivity – but in a recent inetrview has clearly stated that she immediatley gets headaches if she puts a mobile phone to her head.

From the IEMFA, 20 August 2015:

Ex-WHO General-Director and Ex-Prime Minister of Norway: Wireless Technology Has Negative Health Effects. There Is No Doubt.

On Friday the 14th of August 2015, retired WHO General-Director and Prime Minister of Norway, Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, was interviewed by the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten*.

One of the issues raised in the interview was her current thoughts on wireless radiation. Her statement was crystal clear.

Watch the relevant clip from the interview here, subtitled in English by Citizens’ Radiation Protection, Norway.

We are grateful to Gro, for her clear and honest response.

Electrosmog is real

Noel Edmonds on health risks of electrosmog in Huffington Post

Noel Edmonds is a TV celebrity in the UK. He has spoken his mind on something which is affecting the lives of an increasing number of us.

Electrosmog is real. It is the international name for electromagnetic pollution which is recognized by many authorities and governments around the world. The United Nations cancer committee the IARC categorises electrosmog as a class 2B carcinogen because of its proven links to cancer in animals. France has recently outlawed Wi-Fi in crèches and limited use primary schools because of the health risks. Over 200+ of professional scientists have recently written to Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations to request that permitted electrosmog levels to be reduced significantly. The scientists want electrosmog classified the same as smoking.

Increasingly people are exhibiting symptoms of electrosensitivity such as headaches, palpitations, memory loss, fatigue, sleeplessness. Reducing radiation exposure levels often clears up the condition.
