Top cancer expert says wifi is as dangerous as tobacco and asbestos

In this Daily Mail article top cancer expert Professor Anthony Miller says wifi is as dangerous as tobacco and asbestos

Prof Anthony Miller of Toronto University couldn’t be blunter, saying: ‘[Wifi] should not be allowed in schools.’

Professor Miller – who was Director of Canada’s National Cancer Institute’s Epidemiology Unit, and has held top posts in the World Health Organisation and the German Cancer Research Centre – is not alone in his fears.

He is the latest in a long line of top scientists to warn that the invisible waves of electromagnetic radiation that now constantly wash over us all – dubbed ‘electrosmog’ even by some academics – may cause a future cancer epidemic, and that it’s children who are most at risk.

Some concerned nations have already begun banning or restricting wifi, as well as mobile phones – another source of electrosmog – in schools.


France has banned wifi from nursery schools (the younger the child, the greater the danger), and restricted its use in teaching children up to the age of 11.

It has also banned mobile phones from all schools, partly because they are socially disruptive. But the country’s official Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety has recommended that tablets and other wifi devices should be regulated as phones are.

Cyprus has also banned wifi from kindergartens, and only permits it in the staff offices of junior schools for administration purposes. Israel also prohibits it in pre-schools and kindergartens, and allows it only to be gradually introduced in class as children get older. The Israeli city of Haifa has hardwired its school system so children can used computers that don’t need wifi to connect to the internet.

Frankfurt, meanwhile, hardwired 80 per cent of all its schools more than a decade ago, while the school authorities in Salzburg, Austria, wrote to headteachers officially advising them not to use wifi as long ago as 2005.

Ghent in Belgium has banned wifi in pre-schools and daycare centres, while individual local authorities in Spain and Italy have removed it from all their schools. Even faraway French Polynesia has prohibited it in nursery schools and limits it in primary ones. And so the list goes on.

Here in Britain, by contrast, there is only complacency and inaction – despite authoritative early warnings of trouble ahead.

Until Public Health England (formerly PHA) follow suit, the recommendation from us at Beneficial Environments is to try and reduce your everyday exposure to electosmog, by taking these sensible precautions:

  • Use a wired Internet solution during the day where possible, to connect to your devices and either disable Wifi at the router itself or use a shielded router bag
  • Use an airtube head set, or better still use one with an EMF filter (See our latest product Oktapus)
  • Disable data (3G/4G), bluetooth and wifi on your phone when it is not being used
  • Switch off your wifi router at night
  • Switch mobile phones off or to flight mode at night
  • Charge devices away from your body and your bed

 

Reducing radiation children and mobile phones

Reducing radiation children and mobile phones.

If you do decide to your child a phone, then…

Do not give them on old one with a small aerial in the top – these concentrate the radiation emissions right by the skull.

I have gone for an HTC One smartphone as the one that doses me least with microwave radiation in daily use.

They are a top end smartphone but support internet pass through – i.e. the phone will connect to the internet via a USB cable to any PC with the HTC software on.  On Amazon they are priced from £115 upwards.

I don’t know of another manufacturer that supports this. All smartphones seem to need large downloads to support software updates which on other phones means lots of radiation from their data function.

At any time when near a PC with the HTC software connecting to the internet with a USB cable – it also charges the phone.

In use:

  1. switch off all the transmitters except 3G phone-and-text – that means 4G, bluetooth, wifi, position, nfc, and data. The battery life is at least doubled.
  2. temporarily switch on data only when needed. Get your child to learn how to use the usual apps – facebook etc. on their wired PC and with a wired connection to their phone at home..
  3. never put a microwave transmitter (cordless and mobiles) to your head, always carry it in a bag, never in a pocket
  4. always use an air tube headset (single ear – stereo ones are dangerous because you cannot hear what is going on around you and tangle a lot) and keep it plugged in so that you answer the phone by headset and hold the phone a good distance from the head when using it. Speaker-phone mode is not so good – it means transmitters closer to the head, are overheard and usually affected by background noise. Using the airtube headset – radiation to your brain is roughly 10,000 times less than compared to using the phone held to your ear.
  5. you can use screening phone holders but they do nothing to reduce radiation (any attempt to shield a phone means they ramp up their power).
  6. also blobs and buttons and stickers cannot counteract the powerful radiation ever, fully – if at all.
  7. at night switch off totally and charge at least 2m from the bed.
  8. consider getting your child to wear protective clothing for school. Looks ordinary but contains silver thread which reflects microwaves.

I tried to hardwire a new Samsung phone 18 months ago and it couldn’t! HTC do and it works well.

Also if you are going to give your child data access there are these parental control apps.

Get Wired 2015 – Dr. Martin Blank – Getting Real About EMF

This video is from the Get Wired 2015 conference and features Dr. Martin Blank – Getting Real About EMF.

The GetWired 2015 conference was sponsored by Beneficial Environments and was a response to concerns about the proliferation of wifi and mobile phone technologies.

The conference objective was to find and promote solutions to the problems arising both in terms of how to protect and shield vulnerable groups such as children and the aged but also how to encourage new safer products to be made available.   In contrast to many conferences focusing on the health effects, we have looked at solutions to the problem of widespread electrosensitivity and increasing electromagnetic pollution.

Get Wired 2015 – Dr. Martin Blank – Getting Real About EMF

Dr Martin Blank earned PhDs in physical chemistry (1957) from Columbia University and in colloid science (1960) from University of Cambridge. He joined Columbia University’s Dept of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics in 1959, retired as Associate Professor in 2011 and is now a Special Lecturer. His research has been on membranes, transport processes, excitation, and recently on health effects of electromagnetic radiation (EMR). His book on health effects of EMR, “Overpowered: The Dangers of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMF) and What You Can Do About It” was published in 2014.

During his tenure, he had short-term appointments at 11 universities around the world, as well as at five industrial research labs and the US Office of Naval Research. He also organized many meetings, including two World Congresses on Electricity and Magnetism in Biology and Medicine, 4 Erice (Italy) Courses on Bioelectrochemistry, and he started the Gordon Research Conferences on Bioelectrochemistry. He has been Chairman of the Organic and Biological Division of the Electrochemical Society, President of the Bioelectrochemical Society, President of the Bioelectromagnetics Society, and has been on editorial boards of Journal of the Electrochemical Society, Bioelectrochemistry and Bioenergetics, Electromagnetic Medicine and Biology. He was editor of the 2009 special issue of Pathophysiology on EMR. He has published over 200 papers and reviews, as well as twelve edited books on electrical properties of biological systems, including the Proceedings of the First World Congress on “Electricity and Magnetism in Biology and Medicine”, “Electromagnetic Fields: Biological Interactions and Mechanisms”. He was one of the organizers of the online Bioinitiative Report, and edited the 2009 update in Pathophysiology.

Electrosmog

Electrosmog

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.

Radiation in Cell Phones

Radiation in Cell Phones

Mobile phones are microwave transmitters.

Modern day smartphones have about 5 transmitters which all emit radiation.

When not using certain functions of your cell phone e.g. Bluetooth, WiFi, Data (3G-4G), these can and should be disabled, and the phones should never be kept close to your skin (manufacturers recommend a minimum of 15mm).

The phone should be used on speaker or better still through the use of an airtube headset.
