Wireless internet, cell phones, and smart meters are ubiquitous in the modern world, but some studies have shown that there is reason to be cautious about exposure to microwave radiation (MWR). The federal government, however, is not only asleep at the wheel; it has preempted local communities from rejecting cell phone towers based on very real health concerns. It’s time for federal regulators to take this issue seriously and stop blocking citizens from stepping in when the government fails to act. Continue reading
Most of us have heard that cell-phone usage could expose you to unhealthy levels of radiation. But when accumulated over time, exposure to radiation can result in cancer, DNA damage and a weakened immune system. DNA damage disrupts normal cell growth and protein production. In 2011 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), released the statement that cell phone radiation is a “possible human carcinogen.”
Many studies have found that mobile phone radiation quickly alters and damages your DNA. A six-year industry study showed that human blood exposure to cell phone radiation had a 300 percent increase in genetic damage in the form of micronuclei, suggesting a health threat much greater than smoking or asbestos.

If you think the jury’s still out on whether cell phones can be dangerous to your health, then you might want to take the time to listen to this video.
Dr. Devra Davis, author of the book, “The Secret History of the War on Cancer,” has been researching the safety hazards of radiation emanating from your cell phone. Like many people, Dr. Davis just didn’t believe the possibility of cell phones being dangerous―until she studied it. And now, with the toxicological and epidemiological evidence to back up her claims, she’s trying to get the word out that cell phone radiation is not only dangerous, but can be downright lethal.

Radiation Risk to Humans Differs Between GSM and CDMA Cell Phone Technology, Says UC Berkeley’s Joel Moskowitz, PhD, Director of Family & Community Health
Less Radiation Exposure from CDMA Phones Compared with GSM
The Council of Europe’s recent resolution (below) on the need to reduce exposures to electromagnetic fields focused on cell phones with “continuous pulse waves”, the kind emitted by GSM phones (e.g. AT&T & T-Mobile) but not by CDMA (Verizon, Sprint), says Joel Moskowitz, PhD, Director, Center for Family and Community Health, School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley. (GSM is the acronym for “Global System for Mobile” communications and CDMA is the acronym for “Code-Division Multiple Access” global system.) Continue reading
Over 190 million cell phones are in use in the United States, with users often scrambling to another room, building or street to get better reception. As consumers, it is frustrating when your cell phone reception gets dropped or is too garbled to hear. But beyond “Can you hear me now?” is another considerably more important question:
Are the cell towers and antennas popping up all over the country – -the very ones that we depend on for clear reception and a wide coverage area — safe? Continue reading

(NaturalNews) Most people are familiar with type-1 diabetes and type-2 diabetes, but did you know researchers have discovered a third type of diabetes? Type-3 diabetes, as they are calling it, affects people who are extra sensitive to electrical devices that emit “dirty” electricity.
Type-3 diabetics actually experience spikes in blood sugar and an increased heart rate when exposed to electrical pollution (“electropollution”) from things like computers, televisions, cordless and mobile phones, and even compact fluorescent light bulbs. Continue reading
An increasingly alarmed army of international scientists have reached a controversial conclusion:
The “electrosmog” that first began developing with the rollout of the electrical grid a century ago and now envelops every inhabitant of Earth is responsible for many of the diseases that impair or kill them. During the past 100 years, we have methodically filled in the electromagnetic spectrum far beyond what occurs in nature. Continue reading
Alarming new research indicates that children and teenagers are five times more likely to get brain cancer if they use cell phones. The study is raising fears that today’s young people may suffer an epidemic of the disease in later life. Continue reading
In the video above, ElectromagneticHealth.org founder Camilla Rees presents an overview of an emerging public health issue — excessive exposures to microwave radiation from wireless technologies.
Illness linked to electromagnetic radiation exposure includes many cancers, neurological conditions, ADD, sleep disorders, depression, autism, cognitive problems, cardiovascular irregularities, hormone disruption, immune system disorders, metabolism changes, stress, fertility impairment, increased blood brain barrier permeability, mineral disruption, DNA damage and much, much more.
Learn how to sensibly protect yourself in high EMF environments, and why it is important you join others in advocating for stricter safety standards for wireless technologies.
The Web site ElectromagneticHealth.org also offers ten free audio interviews with some of the world’s leading experts in the field of EMF. Continue reading
Cell phones could double the risk of malignant brain tumors, one of the deadliest types of cancer. Learn about the explosion of brain tumors and the truth about the wireless society.
Dr. Mercola’s Comments:
In the last 20 years, cell phones have dramatically changed the way people communicate. Now you can stay in contact with your friends, family and colleagues 24/7, from virtually anywhere in the world. But this convenience comes at a heavy cost, and one that could potentially end your life prematurely.
Few people realize this, but brain cancer has now surpassed leukemia as the number one cancer killer in children.
Australia has seen an increase in pediatric brain cancers of 21 percent in just one decade. This is consistent with studies showing a 40 percent brain tumor increase across the board in Europe and the U.K. over the last 20 years. Continue reading
