Leaders in their respective fields, Panagopoulos, Johansson, and Carlo, claim electromagnetic field (EMF) exposures significantly below international safety levels exposures are destroying the public's health and well-being.
Recent study findings
This latest study concluded the present standard of measuring EMFs, Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), to be totally inappropriate. SAR measures the heating effect of EMF based technologies like microwave ovens, cell phones, cordless phones, Wi-Fi and the like. But countless studies have brought to light adverse biological effects at radiation levels significantly below levels where a thermal effect is detected.
Dr. Carlo points out the life-threatening consequences of using SAR as an exposure metric in establishing the outcomes of EMF studies:
• "Studies which show 'no effect' are likely "false negatives."
• "Studies that show an effect are likely under-reporting the true risk."
He goes on to say "this imprecision....shakes the foundation of the science that we are using to sort out the full range of non-ionizing radiation health effects."
10 human bodies
At this point the real debate is moving beyond whether or not EMFs harm health and threaten public safety. Even the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified EMF exposure as a possible carcinogen (Group 2B carcinogen). This new research paper elaborates on just how strong these EMFs can be: "For waves emitted by a supposed unidirectional antenna it takes about 10 human bodies in sequence in order to be totally absorbed."
Like other pioneers in the field of scientific research Dr. Carlo's, Professor Johansson's, and Dr. Panagopoulos's innovative work has been scoffed at by many of their academic peers. Needless to say, their scientific evidence remains unassailable. The researchers stand 100% behind their life altering conclusions.
Scientific database on EMF research unreliable
Much EMF research is skewed by funding and research bias. A prime example of how funding influences research findings is demonstrated by a 2005 meta-analysis on cell phone studies. When comparing research findings and sources of funding, the findings were clear. The majority of industry funded studies found cell phone users had a lower risk of brain tumors; while non-industry funded studies found users had an increased risk.
EMFs not only affect cell phone users, but pretty much anyone else living in this technological age, the young, the old, and everyone else in their path. This exposure results in increased risks not only for leukemia and AD, but reproductive issues, behavioral issues, autism, neurological effects, DNA changes, certain types of cancer, and changes in the blood-brain barrier.
Basic EMF protection
Reducing personal exposure to EMFs is a fairly easy endeavor. Basic EMF protection can be achieved by:
• Texting instead of talking with cell phones
• Setting cell phones on airplane mode when not in use
• Clearing the bedroom of electrical devices
• Replacing Wi-Fi with a hard-wired connection
Taking these simple steps is well worth the effort; the power to reduce EMF exposure and the adverse health effects that stem from them are truly right there at your fingertips.
