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
A couple of weeks ago I received a letter from the electric company. It stated that they would be replacing my current analog electric meter with an “upgraded” meter, which was a euphemism for a “smart meter”. I knew this day would come. For those of you not familiar with these meters, they send bursts of intense microwave radiation through the house every few seconds, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. This is radio frequency radiation (RF), the same kind your cell phone puts out, but more powerful, and it never stops. The meter also produces big spikes of energy in the wiring of your house, called “dirty electricity”. Continue reading

Mounting research—not to mention plain logic—indicates that brain disorders are the result of excessive exposure to toxins from multiple sources—including the mother, while in utero. One 2005 study4 by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) found that blood samples from newborns contained an average of 287 toxins. Continue reading

Two years ago, Marcia Angell, former editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine, discussed how a shocking 46 percent of Americans fit a diagnosis for one form of mental illness or another.1
Now, a report2 released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveals that nearly 20 percent of American children (aged 3 to 17) suffer from some form of mental disorder, loosely defined as “serious changes in the ways children handle their emotions, learn, or behave.” Continue reading

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.

A few weeks ago, I had the honor of speaking at the annual conference of the American College for Advancement of Medicine… The conference was held out in Las Vegas, which for me meant a direct flight from Miami. But when I hit Miami International Airport, I was in for a nasty surprise – body scanners. I went to the TSA website and found there are already 385 of these units at 68 airports across the country. And they have plans to install lots more… Continue reading

(NaturalNews) The new, full-body security scanners being introduced at airports pose a greater skin cancer risk than governments have previously acknowledged and are especially dangerous to children and pregnant women, a new study has found. Continue reading
WHAT’S WRONG WITH COMPACT FLUORESCENT LIGHTS?
Compact fluorescent lights (CFL), heavily promoted for their energy saving properties, are quickly pushing traditional incandescent bulbs out of the market. They’re now inexpensive, payback in electricity savings is nearly immediate, and there is that side benefit of reducing power plant emissions. Some politicians in North America and England even want to ban incandescents. The only loudly articulated opposition to this idea has been from some concerned about mercury content in CFLs. The response has been, with proper handling and recycling of their mercury contents, CFLs are safe. Is mercury really the main concern?
If you have ever worried about the safety of eating irradiated food, or about the long term effects of cell phone signals, how about the safety of you and your family being exposed to a set of electromagnetic frequencies from your lighting at home? 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
