great danger from cell-phone use

Post by Garth » Thu Jan 08, 2015 7:28 pm

I was mildly skeptical until I saw this article and video. The woman (who also did not initially believe there was any danger) presents loads of data from studies showing the damage cell phones do to the brain and other parts of the body they are kept near for significant periods of time. Children are much more susceptible though, and they recommend that children not be allowed any cell-phone use at all. Being in the car (hopefully you're a passenger if you're on the phone) is the worst, because the phone is emitting the greatest amount of microwave power as it continually seeks for the next cell site it needs to transfer to as you move. For all of us, when we can't use a land line, we should be using a corded headset so the phone (or Bluetooth gizmo) is not right near the brain. Women can carry the phone in a purse; but against the body raises the risk of cancer where the phone is kept, and even of deteriorating the density of bones in the area.

I have heard that you can get cancer over the years through different small articles however this one seems to be quite comprehensive. They also mentioned about bluetooth headsets which operate on the 2.4Ghz band. So I guess this is also a bit dangerous due to 2.4Ghz also being in the microwave frequency band. Perhaps having one of those little bluetooth earpieces in your ear all day is a bad idea...

I know a lawyer who was challenging HDTV antennas being installed near our neighborhood. You might not think they are very big but they are the size of a tractor trailer in the air. She was saying it was a danger because ice could fall off of them in high winds and she actually plotted areas that ice could fall as a result.

She told us it is against the law to bring up in court that electrons heat up molecules and to use it as a defense against antenna towers. There were plenty of people who would pick up the regular phone and not be able to get a dial tone because of the interference from the towers. We could actually get a lot of static and sometimes a French radio station on the home phone. If you couldn't make a phone call on Sunday because of the electrical interference, you would understand. Back in the 80's, they would throw my modem offline and you had to have a modem connection with error correction or else it was pointless because the noise would be misread by the modem and it would be gibberish.

I never had a reason to challenge it but it is a political thing for various reasons and therefore few people would ever win in court.

I read that the corn-popping video was a joke that they did by dropping already-popped corn and removing the frames where you would be able to see it falling before it bounced. Even if all the RF from the phone's transmission went directly into the corn, I don't think it would be nearly enough power to bring it up to a hot-enough temperature to pop it.

I stand corrected. You are right.

It reminds me of a video on youtube where some guys were over clocking a cpu on a motherboard that was sitting out of the computer on a table. They then removed the heatsink and it went pop. They then lifted up the motherboard to reveal a hole in the table - which it was very obvious that the hole was pre-made and not caused by the tiny pop made by the CPU!

In the second video I wasn't sure exactly what she meant about how adults will have five times more brain cancer by their late twenties. Did she mean to say that they are five times more likely to develop brain cancer perhaps?

I took it to mean five times as likely to develop brain cancer as someone who had not been using cell phones, at least not having started as early. Back when the general public could not afford cell phones yet, I remember an article saying that there was a new rash of brain cancers, and what they all had in common was that they were all in people who were in real estate and outside sales, and the cancers were always on the side they used the cell phone on. I'm sure the phones had to put out a lot more power back then since cell sites were much farther apart.

Good point. When we do radio system testing on aircraft at work, we have safety distances to work with. The higher the output power of the system, the greater that distance becomes.

As for real estate agents, they would be on their mobile phones perhaps more than anyone!

Here's another, a 10-minute video from Dr. Karl Maret, M.D., M.Eng., on the immediate health problems caused to children by WiFi in schools: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFHnouzKyU0

I'm not looking for this stuff, but I keep running across it. http://www.naturalnews.com/043238_Wi-Fi ... rowth.html
It clearly does not apply to all plants, but to the kind they tried, it made a huge difference. A more-professional study is needed.

Plants won't grow near Wi-Fi routers, experiment finds
The experiment began when the five students realized that they had difficulty concentrating in school if they slept near their mobile phones the previous night. Intrigued by this phenomenon, the students endeavored to study the effects of cellphone radiation on humans. Unfortunately, their school prevented them from pursuing this experiment due to a lack of resources, so the students decided to test the effects of Wi-Fi radiation (comparable in strength to cellphone radiation) on a plant instead.

The girls placed six trays of Lepidium sativum seeds (a garden cress grown commercially throughout Europe) in a room without radiation, and an equal amount in a room next to two Wi-Fi routers. Over a 12-day period, they observed, measured, weighed and photographed the results. Even before the 12th day arrived, however, the end results were obvious: The cress seeds placed near the routers either hadn't grown or were completely dead, while the seeds placed in the radiation-free room had blossomed into healthy plants.
