These EMF are correlated with the dissemination of radiations producedin our modern technology. For living creatures suffer under influences of these fields, once every externalstimulus generates internal ones. To give evidence of the veracity that altered EM waves can be the hazardousto health. The research adapted was a literary revision about the existence of the interferences caused by lowintensity radiations, especially extremely low frequencies (ELF) originated to EMF non-ionized. Whenreviewing known data literature that includes the intersection among these descriptors researched in technicalbooks, sites of search and neurosciences sites such PubMedic, Medline and Lilacs. A great number of studieshave emphasized that altered electromagnetic waves might cause disturbances or diseases, being CNS included.

For such can interfere on the circadian cycle and therefore with our conscience quality level, due to alterationson the melatonin/serotonin circuit. It is observed an individual sensitivity to the electromagnetic radiations(EMR) and it is established to what degree EMF and/or its radiations might cause unbalances in the humanorganism due to the type, potentiality and period of time under such kind of exposure. It demonstrates theviability that altered electromagnetic waves could induce disturbances to biological and circadian rhythms. Wealready know that it is deregulation of the central biological clock, via the suprachiasmatic nucleus (NSQ)which places in the CNS is a quite simple effect seen in depressed patients, especially in M DD , BD and inseasonal depressions.

Today we are exposed to a great variety of radiationsif compared to society of a hundred years ago and wehave not how to free. In the whole planet there exists,beyond atmospheric contamination, a large diffusion ofradiations artificially created which produce the so calledelectronic pollution or ‘invisible smog’, created by wavesand energy fields of our modern technology. For instance,the radiofrequencies and microwaves utilized intelecommunications, radar detection systems orelectromagnetic radiations produced by electricity passagethrough cable nets and filaments, as created by differenthome appliances.

As a main condition to understand some dangerousoccasional effects due to electromagnetic radiations it isnecessary to complement it with two general assumptions.

First take into consideration the dynamic functioning ofthe earth biosphere as a large integral ecosystem. Suchrepresentation remits to Gaia hypothesis, theory created inthe sixties by the **** scientist **** Lovelock wherehe defends the idea of the Earth functioning like animmense live organism able of automatic self-regulationin order to guarantee the living conditions of the planet(Capra, 2002). This brings us to suppose that itshomeostasis passes through the dynamic and continuousequilibrium of electromagnetic waves and pulses whichoccur on the planet. There were necessary thousands ofyears of adaptation of all the different kinds of life in ourplanet to this electromagnetic and atomic environment.

Truly we are biologically adapted to an electric-magnetic-chemical-radioactive mean from which we can not getrid of (Souza, 2002).

The basic principle of this work is based upon theidea that the live systems of the earthly biosphere havebeen suffering interventions due to the incidence of EMwaves and its electromagnetic fields. A complement to thecontext of this idea is essential to the second generalpresupposition: the adoption of the systemic conceptionto understand such phenomenon (Capra, 1996). SinceNature (Cosmos and Earth) are interconnected and in acontinuous interaction, i.e., one system influences theother by means of a chain reaction in a connection net.

The systematic view was introduced in the twentiethRes. J. Environ. Earth Sci., 3(2): 81-89, 201182

century by biologists of the organic school, whoconceived the living organism as integrated totalities,functioning in a constant interaction under the shape of anetwork pattern, where they interact with the environmentthrough a continuous interchange of material and energy(Capra, 2002).

In this article we will describe the interferencescaused by the low intensity radiations, especially the ELFareas derived from non-ionized EMF. If the consequencesare still conjectures to medical knowledge in general, thecauses are not reversible such is the present civilizationdependence to electric processes. Even though there areplausible evidences about this, rules and preventivemeasures should be taken, for when an activity raises thepossibility of harm to human health and environment evenif any cause and effect relation is not complete orscientifically established. And to clarify the veracity ofsuch occurrences it is essential for the environment healthas for the public health. Therefore, the real clarificationimplies in optimum establishment of the levelsrecommended to the exposition of the living beingcreatures to the electromagnetic fields.


The way which the electromagnetic fields influenceus result of a well known physics phenomenon: theenergy fields’ interaction. It is known that in thebioelectricity universe complex the artificial EMF invadesthe natural magnetic fields, by way of resonancephenomenon, forcing adaptations of the humanbiorhythms. With regard to the physical phenomenon ofthe resonance, we can understand it in a simplified way asthe property of transmission of energy waves be it originalof sources: electric, sonorous, electromagnetic, atomic orcosmic, to a reciprocal middle. This effect generates agreat increase in the oscillation amplitude through directcontact with the system in study or for induction of thecorrespondent frequency at the distance.

Everything in the human organism and of all livingcreatures functions by electric currents. As the braincommands the operation of the organs and the corporealmovements through electric impulses that pass throughthe nerves, we have these playing the role of cables andelectric wires. So, like cables and wires, the passage of anelectric current creates around itself an electromagneticfield. The electric or bioelectric human body activity isdemonstrated by the cardiograph which measures theelectric heart activity and the electroencephalogram(EEG) the brain one.

One of the first scientists to suspect that our planetand the ionosphere could be in the same frequencyresonance with the brain waves was the **** physicistW.O. Schumann. In 1954, together with Koning theysucceeded in measuring the resonance proprieties of theearth electromagnetic cavity.

In fact there exists a tension gradient between theionosphere and the terrestrial surface. This electrostaticfield is not constant, but variable, and its verticaloscillation contains a fundamental frequency of wavesmodulated by a great number of harmonics that togetherconstitute a pattern . The harmonic w aves get to themegahertz band and have a regulatory and a stabilizinginfluence one the physiologic processes. These harmonicwaves receive the name of Schumann waves and result ofdifferent interactions between w orld and cosmicelectromagnetic radiations, which form the naturalenvironment. As many biological circuits utilize theSchumann waves as a reference pattern of its activity, itwill be easy to understand the biological destabilizationthat we suffer in the large urban nucleus (Bueno, 1992).

This phenomenon is known as Schumann Resonance(SR) with a predominant signal of 8 Hertz band (Hz). Itrefers to a weak, almost static electromagnetic field,which maintains the earth electromagnetic fields rhythm.

The Schumann frequencies modulations are global signalswhich irradiate from tropical tempests. They spreadaround the world in this space created between Earth andatmosphere. The intensity and spectrum of SchumannResonance change day after day according to solaractivity. Such signals have a similar frequency to theelectroencephalogram (EEG) demonstrated by the factthat the human brain perceives, uses and reacts to lowfrequency signals-Schumann Resonances, Koning (1974).

At night both EEG and SR spectrum furnish apreponderance of very low frequency signals. There is abiologic plausibility between the EEG interaction and theSR signals (Beck, 1978). This plausibility is reinforced byobserving that the cerebrum contains and utilizes a fixedinterconnected circuit to find and react to the perceivedsignals.

With the technological evolution and constantelectricity use by living beings they started to besubmitted to a variety of electromagnetic radiationsources created by man. Living beings suffer suchinfluences since each external stimulus generate internalreactions. Therefore it is important to understand that oursenses act as a sensory body. All external informations arecaptured and sent to the cerebrum by means of nervousimpulses, then being possible to suffer changes of theirnormal rhythms through external waves interferencesoriginated from electromagnetic fields of radio -frequency and micro-waves (Scudeler, 2005). When anelectromagnetic wave meets a biologic material the EMFstimulates a kinetic energy growth of biologic molecule,which might induces the ions misplace of settledpositions, oscillations of molecule connections as well asrotation and orientation of bipolar molecules like water.

The temperature increase may be diffuse or limited to aspecific anatomic site. Consequently cellular tissues likemuscles and skin absorb relatively a larger energyRes. J. Environ. Earth Sci., 3(2): 81-89, 201183

quantity than an adipous tissue or osseous of low watercontents (Scudeler, 2005).

According to the physical principle of susceptibleabsorption to the resonance circuits is demonstrated thereason way external and internal signals which conciliatethe same spectrum change resonant energy into a lowerlevel of the thermic limit. The biologic effects caused bysame exposure may be classified as thermic and non-thermic. The thermic effects are due to the hightemperature in the tissues or short term effects. While thenon-thermic effects result of direct reactions with thebiologic substance, without any significant hit transfer,they represent long term effects (Polk and Postow , 1996).

Many groups of scientists believe in the existence ofsignificant biologic thermic and non-thermic effects,inducted by non-ionized EMF of low intensity.

Researchers of the bioelectromagnetism study field areconvinced that interactions with artificial EMF inducecorrespondent biologic effects (Tenforde andKaune, 1987).

The electromagnetic radiation is a form of invisiblepollution and there is no assurance up to this point, thatthe limits of the existing international rules are totallysafe. Now, in the non-ionized radiations field, which areprobably the most common in our environment is theUHF due to the movable telephonic and the most remotepresent devices. It is evident that in the case of cell systemit is cognized that exposure to non-thermic or low thermicintensity can be detected in living tissues and it results inwell defined biologic effects like the changing in the cellmembrane function, change in the metabolism andintercellular communication, DNA rupture, increasedproduction of free radicals, premature aging, cellexhaustions, change in cerebral functions, sleep disorder,reduction of the melatonin secretion, among others(Scudeler, 2005). The author Scudeler (2005) warns thatinstallations of Radio Base Station (RBS) should be atleast 150 m far from where people live and other publicagglomerations.

Under the above mentioned criteria we may considerthat the electromagnetic fields interfere in ourpsychobiologic system, destabilizing the self-regulationprocesses of the human body being able to provoke upsetsand illnesses (Sack et al., 1987). On the other hand, dueto Schumann Resonances strange causes of humanactivity may modify environmental condition forcingchanges and adaptations anyway.


The electromagnetic contamination, especiallyderived from electronic pollution, is the less evident andmost subtle of the radiations that we see exposed today.

All electric appliances are surrounded by radiationinclusively when they are disconnected. Even applianceslocated in contiguous rooms emit radiations for theytraverse the walls. When we apply a variable magneticfield on the surface of a living organism, we inductoscillating electric fields into it.

Until the fifties the EMF effects were little knownespecially with regard to the ELF type frequency on livingcreatures. After 1960 the first Russian studies appearedwhich demonstrated biological alterations suffered byworkers exposed to a high tension net like generaldiscomfort, head-ache, stress, insomnia and evenmisbehavior (Bueno, 1992). In 1979 the epidemiologist**** Wertheimer, in collaboration with the physicist Ed****, carried out epidemiologic studies with Denver(USA) citizens who lived close to high tension cabs ofelectric transmission and concluded an incidence of atwice higher level of children cancer than the generalpopulation. This work is considered as the first one toestablish a correlation between EMF and certainpathologies (Bueno, 1992).

On the other hand the author Bueno (1992) points outthat: People who live close to a high tension cable sufferan overproduction of endorphins, substances produced bythe organism in the natural way. The concentration ofthese substances, authentic drugs with a similar action tomorphine, become lesser when the electric tensiondiminishes or when the people move away from thecables which makes them suffer a typical scene of drugaddicts abstinence, deprived of their usual dosages(Bueno, 1992).

Other studies clarify that whatever source ofelectromagnetic fields be, their radiation may intervenewith melatonin functions, a hormone preferablydischarged at night through the pineal gland consideredthe primary neurohormone of the circadian rhythm alongwith the serotonin neurotransmitter. The melatonin(N-acetyl-metoxitriptamine) is an indolamine synthesizedby pineal gland from the amino acid tryptophan whichoriginates the serotonin through metabolic processes(Sousa **** and Araújo, 2004). This hormone cycleestablishes the daily and natural body rhythms and itsdisorderliness may provoke fatigue and depression(Farzer et al., 1986). For melatonin stimulates theimmunologic system and also regulates certain endocrineprocesses by modulating some organ functions of thiscircuit like: gonads, pituitary, thymus and hypothalamus(Brown, 1989a). According to the chronobiologist workby **** et al. (2003): The pineal gland is able tocaptivate the amino acid 5-hidroxitryptophan andtransform it into serotonin (5-hidroxitriptamine). Theserotonin concentration level is high during the day. In thedark there is a synthesis of the NAT enzyme (N-acetyltransferase), which metabolizes the serotonin in N-acetyl serotonin. Part of this fat-soluble product is throwninto the circulation but part is metabolized by the hidroxi-Res. J. Environ. Earth Sci., 3(2): 81-89, 201184

indol-O-metil-transpherase enzyme (H IOM T) intomelatonin (Markus et al., 2003).

The studies of Buch et al. (1999) andRapoport et al. (1988) correlate reduction of melatoninwith increased GMA (geomagnetic activity). Buch (1977)shows a significant dose-response reduction of melatoninwith increasing GMA index, because the SR signalsynchronizes the ELF brain patterns in a homeostaticmanner and contributes to the daily circadian rhythmsynchronization. **** (2002) complements that thesolar-geomagnetic activity (S/GM A) induces a notableintensity change in the SR signal producing alterations inmelatonin’s levels. He considers that the occurrence insunspot cycles there is a higher prevalence of suicides anddeath by cerebrovascular accident (strokes), as a result ofthe accented growth of the SR signal and in concomitancethe physiologic level reduction of melatonin(Cherry, 2003).

Therefore, to several researchers significant changeson the frequency pattern of Schumann waves, which ispart of Earth resonance (SR), can affect the ability of ourimmunologic system regulation, our sleep pattern and ourphysic perception of time (Pereira and Guerrini, 2004).

The research of Roenneberg et al. (2003) confirmsthese data as demonstrated by the circadian rhythm studyin human beings, that our organism also orientates itselfby sunlight variation in order to regulate basic things likesleeping, eating, disposition. Such mechanisms areessential to the well-being (Roenneberg et al., 2003).

Thanks to the existence of innumerable advancedinstruments of precise measurement, it is possible todayto detect harmful radiations such as: radioactivity level inour houses or some construction materials; lost of loaddefective installations, high tension cabs or transformersand even magnetic anomalies.

There are several scenes which appearance is relateddepending on individual predisposition to toxicelectromagnetic radiations according to bibliographicreferences. For instance, the abusive use of cell phonefavors the appearance of brain cancer; the appearance ofleukemia and other types of cancer in people exposed toelectric transmission on cables; hormonal and endocrinedisorders that end by affecting innumerable metabolicprocesses; reduction of fertility and miscarriages;

psychological equilibrium disturbances, especiallymanifested in behavior disorders. Other correlatedsituations in its co morbidity found in certain events, suchas in the case of the syndrome of the sick building orchronic fatigue syndrome; geographic localizations whichwere subject to telluric alterations or a major incidence ofsun and cosmic radiation or radioactive rains; airionization phenomenon, when occurs a sound electricpositive load or an ions positive predominance indetriment to the negative loads it propitiates an ionicdisequilibrium responsible for a number of psychologicalaffections such as emotional imbalance, irritability,apathy, stress, anxiety, depression and a higher level ofsuicide attempts (Bueno, 1992).


Everyday it is more evident that the occurrences of aninfirmity have not just one cause but there are manyfactors involved. So a disturbance is almost always aconsequence of several interactions of risk factors. Andwe should not adopt a segmented vision and conformourselves with its separate studying.

A healthy equilibrium, physical and psychic endsbeing influenced by current factors of its environment.

The predominant environmental circumstances havealways influenced living beings. Such fact isdemonstrated by the evolutionary tendency of theirphysiological processes seeking to the maintenance oftheir vital biological cycles. That is, the determinant forceof the natural environment constantly interferes in theterrestrial homeostasis, forcing the continuous adaptationof the living creatures (Margullis and Sogan, 1998).

Nowadays we find ourselves submitted to a nonspecific deterioration of our vitality where infirmities turnto become a consequence of an inharmonious way ofliving with environmental nature . With regard to thisquestion it is necessary to know that we are constantlysubmitted to electronic pollution and that we should startto suspect it may really disorganize our physiologicalequilibrium.

If all processes which arise in Nature happen underthe influence of electromagnetic forces, such fact impliesthat any life form is related with the electromagneticphenomena. Without them, life w ould d isappearaccording to the shape we know today. This results thatthe life of all living beings is also intimately connected tothe variations of these fields. Besides, the immensetechnological progress made it possible to modify theprecarious equilibrium of our surroundings for we did nottake into account that poor variations may have crucialeffects upon life. Even though they refer to a quite weakmagnitude, they are able through resonance, to interactwith all life processes (Bueno, 1992). According to thegeobiologist Bueno (1992): Any dose of radiation thatsurpasses the natural threshold can be prejudicial or causebiological alterations. Unfortunately, such alterationsalways look disguised by a series of symptoms anddisturbances of difficult accuracy to the point ofimpending us to establish the exact relation of cause andeffect (Bueno, 1992). The usual consequence is theappearance of diseases initially light, attributed to stress,climate or other life conditions. According to hisexperience it takes from five to seven years of radiationexposure to be considered harmful in order to developchronic diseases like rheumatism, asthma, arrhythmia,leukemia, etc., (Bueno, 1992).

Res. J. Environ. Earth Sci., 3(2): 81-89, 201185

Therefore, we should not associate the idea of EMFas direct producers of diseases. It is more convenient toconsider the harmfulness of such exhibitions as precursorsof illnesses. That is, risk factors to the occurrence ofunbalances which alter our answering capacity toenvironmental aggressions. Because, it commonlycompromises the self-regulation processes of organism,especially the immunologic system, as a result of theweakening our body suffers under the effects of theradiations. There is, how ever, an individual sensibility orover sensibility to such contaminations. In fact, there aredifferent sensibility levels to the various radiations theyare being exposed to. The radiation dose that they areexposed to can be identical but personal sensibility differsa lot. It is known that electromagnetic radiations arecharacterized by the wave length relative to a frequencyand to an irradiated energy with two main classes: ionizedradiations and non ionized radiations which include anExtremely Low Frequency (ELF).

How can the EMF affect the Central Nervous System(CNS)? It is known that the earth magnetic field isoscillating, frequently varying between 8 and 20Hz. Onthe other hand, our cerebrum is tuned with this terrestrialpulsation between 8 and 12Hz of the brainelectromagnetic activity where it is established the socalled alpha cerebrum state (Bueno, 1992). This is due tothe fact that the human brain has a fixed interconnectedcircuit and uses it to captivate and react to perceivesignals, especially SR and ELF signals. And in theproportion that many biological circuits use as referencepattern of the RS signal for its activity. And because ofthis event it occurs the synchronization of the dailycircadian rhythm and equally to the ELF patterns in thecerebrum in a homeostatic form. So, harmful alterationsin natural fields resulting of the artificial EMR invasionmay affect the CNS since the brain waves have anintegrated interaction with the earth electromagneticsignals.

Furthermore due to the electric resonance, a naturalphenomenon produced by long distance induction isknown as electromagnetic induction. Such particularitymay propitiate affections in the cerebrum homeostasis dueto the propensity to affections in their biophysiologicalprocesses. For, according to existing evidences,alterations in circadian pacemakers precipitates severeabnormalities in the cerebrum chemistry either due to thereduction of melatonin levels or changes in the level ofother neurohormones (Tolis and Stefanis, 1983). Alsosuch circadian alterations make possible functionaldisorders under the neurotransmitter circuits, likeserotonin, noradrenalin, norephinefrine, etc.,(Soares et al., 2008).

According to the above mentioned studies, changesin time and intensity of natural radiations have aninfluence on living beings. That is, Sun and M oon activityalterations, sun winds, magnetic storms and magma earthmovements have been associated to psychopathologicscene and slower reactions by predisposed people. Theseobservations conduct us to suppose that significative earthelectromagnetic modifications (SR) with regard toartificial signals could similarly affect the psychicarrangement and consecutively by the cognitive behavior(Balling and Hilderbrandt, 2000). Then it is conjecturablethat such cognitive changes could generate interchangeaffective-emotional disturbances, which provokedistortions fomented by inadequate behavior or anti-socialbehavior due to the possibility of such radiations to altermind states quality (Bawin et al., 1975). According tosuch segment we deduce that people predisposed to EMradiation hyper sensibility, originated by electromagneticcontamination of altered S/GMA (solar-geomagneticactivity) or geomagnetic faulty (Hartmann’s lines),possibly end developing severe disturbances(Buch et al., 1999).

According to Psychoneuroimmunology, the immunitysystem and CNS share many common characteristics andcarry out reciprocal influence (Brown, 1989b). Theyrepresent biological systems responsible for promotinghealthy body equilibrium. Due to the radiations exposureoriginated of natural EMF and/or artificial ones, they arethe first to be affected by the changes in thiselectromagnetic spectrum. Such alterations will interferedirectly in these biological circuits originating disordersin its physiological mechanisms w hich are not easilycorrelated to events, taking into account thataggressiveness control happens in several levels of thebrain, from the hypothalamus in the cerebral trunk to theneocortex. And that the serotonin shares with themelatonin the circadian rhythm control as well as itchemically interferes in the aggressive impulses controlsimilar to the noradrenalin (Bawin et al., 1975). Then,noxious changes which happened in the terrestrialmagnetism or in the current of the artificial EMF cangenerate serious upset in the cerebral chemistry,especially in the hypothalamus.

The electromagnetic contamination after all isharmful to natural biotic rhythms, which regulate vigiland sleep periods with the capacity of induction to severesleeping disturbances, like paradoxical sleep or sleepprivation, which may com promise subsequentlyconscience quality states. One of the most significative ofsuch artificial fields, called low frequency (like ELF), isthe possible interference with the brain’s cycles activities,that determine the different states of conscience. It hasbeen observed that in vigil states, conscious attention oractive thought, our cerebrum produces electromagneticwaves of 25, 50, 100 and 200 Hz or superior when we arevery worried about something. In exchange, when werelax it lowers to 8 or 12 Hz and when we are deep asleepcan emit some 4Hz waves only. After the aboveRes. J. Environ. Earth Sci., 3(2): 81-89, 201186

mentioned it becomes easy to understand that any personobliged to remain 8, 10, 12 or 24 h followed by a lowelectromagnetic waves action of 50 or 60 Hz will hardlyrelax or rest deeply due to what his nervous system willresent and after a short or long period his immunologicalsystem will be affected by such disequilibrium(Bueno, 1992).

So, it becomes easier to suspect that alterations, evensubtle, in this electromagnetic universe can provokepsychopathological scenes in more sensitive persons. Forthey function like stressors agents and, due to the superprovoked stimulation, they are able to produce irritationsensations without a real motive. They also induct otherdisturbances, as a significant increase of the degree of thesubjective anxiety, which promotes growing states ofstress, what can facilitate the installation of a chronicstress state. This phenomenon is known by the works ofSeyle like stress reaction, where animals w ere exposed toelectric fields for a quite short time during one to fourmonths (Bueno, 1992).

Considering that electromagnetic disturbances alsointerfere in the circadian rhythm due to the possibility ofaltering the vigil and sleep or even can produce hormonaldisorders, it is possible that they favor the emergence ofcurrent depression scenes of the successive alteration inthe neuronal metabolism. Besides, we may suppose thatelectromagnetic disturbances can interfere with thecircadian rhythm due to the possibility of altering both theplasmatic concentrations of serotonin and the physiologiclevels of the melatonin. And, like this, they propitiate theoccurrence of several metabolic disorders. Therefore, it isprobable that it favors the emergence of a number offdifferent types of depression as a consequence toalterations in the neural metabolism (Kripke et al., 1978).

The article “Melatonin and psychiatric disorders” by**** Neto and Araújo (2004) mentions an extensivebibliographical revision concerning the melatonin,circadian rhythm and psychiatric disorders, especially inthe schizophrenia, **** Depressive Disorder (Mdd),Bipolar Disorder (BD) and seasonal affective disorder(Sousa N eto and Araújo, 2004). In the case of MDD, themost frequent discovery is the decrease of nocturnalsecretion of melatonin, which could characterize the socalled Low Melatonin Syndrome (LM S) and it couldserve as marker of M DD (Sousa **** and Araújo, 2004).

The Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axisplays a fundamental part on answering external andinternal stimulus, including the biological stressors. Thisendocrine axes is the main long term mediator answer ofbody to stress. The alterations in the function of the HPAaxis are related to the psychopathologic depression state.

Besides melancholic depression and major depression, aseries of conditions can be associated to a prolongedhyperactivity of the HPA axis. Another group ofpsychopathologies is characterized by a hypo activationof the same axis w ith a chronic reduction in the secretionof the Corticotrophin-Releasing Factor (CRF). Patientswith atypical depression , seasonal affective disease andthe chronic fatigue syndrome are included in this category(Juruena and Cleare, 2007). The melatonin receptors inthe hypothalamus or in pituitary mediate the melatonin’snocturnal secretion by processes which occur in the cellsof Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (SNC) in the hypothalamus.

Lewy et al. (2006) found associations between the indexof depression and the circadian period. Other authors havesuggested that the seasonal effects of the mood and of thebehavior (seasonality) are related to alterations ofserotoninergic functions in axis HPA (Partonen andLonnqvist, 1988).

Therefore, biological rhythm alterations have animportant role into physiopathology of mood disordersparticularly bipolar affective disorders, where the bipolarpresents a retard in melatonin secretion. Their levels arelower than the seasonal unipolar and normal controls(Bunney et al., 1986).

The sun illuminating cycle represents the mostpowerful external circadian synchronizer being one of theenvironmental factors promoters of the so called seasonalaffective disorder (Wehr and ****, 1989). The light-dark alternation controls the melatonin biosynthesis. Theresponsible gene for the production of N-acetyltransferaseenzyme is transcribed starting from the activation betaadrenoceptors stimulated by noradrenalin liberated in thedark period. The second messenger (cyclical AM P) of thistransducer way not only induces the transduction of gene,as well as the protein stabilization. In clear constant themelatonin production is abolished. In darkness constantthis production enters a free way commanded by thebiological clock oscillation located in suprachiasmaticnucleus (Markus et al., 2003). Although that alternationbeing the environmental stimulus known as capable toactivate the functioning of the circadian metabolism(Lewy et al., 1985). It is also necessary to take intoconsideration that the pattern of the RS signal is used asbasic referential for the synchronization of the circadianrhythm daily. Therefore, due to the phenomenoninteraction with EMF, significant variations in thatelectromagnetic pattern arising out of energy absorptionespecially resonant fields could cause metabolic disorders.

The adjustment between the environmental

surroundings and the biological clock is done road neuraland the light-dark alternation is the main environmentaloscillation perceived to activate the circadian metabolismfunctioning. There is a light perception way that does notget to the cortex but does get to the hypothalamus,being therefore completely independent of vision(Markus et al., 2003). The light, when producing directstimulus on the retina, propitiates the increase of theelectric activity in the organism and synthesis of proteins,as well as the activation of genes. There is a special groupRes. J. Environ. Earth Sci., 3(2): 81-89, 201187

of cadenced genes by light environmental stimulus, whichare able to control the biological rhythm and produce theirown circadian rhythm and, as consequence, they have aninfluence on psychological and behavioral systems(Münch, 2006).

Nowadays, it is known the existence of circadianmarkers named as circadian oscillator, being the mostimportant the suprachiasmatic nucleus located in thehypothalamus, and both promote their own homeostasisof the organism. Such markers propitiate the operation ofthe biological clock. So that in order to have a rhythmicendogenous circadian in a living being, it is necessary thatsome structure operate as a pacemaker. Pacemakers canbe defined as primary oscillators, which exhibit anoscillatory pattern genetically determined, self-sustainable, endogenous, even in the absence of externaltemporary tracks (Markus et al., 2003). On the other hand,such circadian markers are co-related to two mainpacemakers which regulate some physiologic processesand called also Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (SNC) in thehypothalamus - psychomotricity; nourishment; sleeping;

water ingestion control; sexual behavior; corporaltemperature; hormone secretions like adrenocorticotropic(ACTH), prolactina, melatonin, gonadstrophrines and, thecircadian oscillator - rhythmical of the cortisol,temperature and paradoxical sleep, among others (Soareset al., 2008). It is due to the occurrence of these harmfuldisarrangements in this biological context that it isexpressed the noxious compromising of the EM radiationsformally.


Through the group of knowledge regarding theadopted bibliography, it was verified that modifications inthe natural EMF as the artificial ones can favor theemergence of psychobiological upset and illnesses.

Significant disturbances in the terrestrial electromagneticfield (SR) lead to biological alterations for they interferedirectly with self-regulation processes of the human body.

On the same way, the artificial EMF and its radiationspropitiate similar disturbances, since its variety and itsintensity is a lot superior to the ones originated in anatural way.

The electromagnetic contamination can be

demonstrated by the following correlation: The toxicologyteaches us that a very noxious substance in greatquantities can also be noxious in small quantities, whentheir effect is continuous and repetitive. Through theradiology we know that prejudicial effects accumulate bytime and that the noxiousness of the exposing to unnaturalradiations starts from zero (Bueno, 1992).Therefore, atfirst it would be more appropriate to consider the artificialEMF as a precursor, that is, an unbalancing circumstancethat predisposes us and it turns us vulnerable to anyfunctional upset.

On this work we demonstrated that some scientificsegments differently than that of medical knowledgerecognize that there are indeed plausible evidences thatelectromagnetic waves can cause damages to humanhealth. Until a wide consensus occurs, as a result of aninterdisciplinary growth of scientific evidences, rules andeffective measures should already be adopted. For whenone activity raises the possibility of harm to human healthand/or environment, preventive measures should be taken,even if some cause and effect relation has not yet beenestablished completely and scientifically. Therefore, theimmediate attitude to be taken is precaution in regard topublic welfare. The main idea of precaution as guidanceto environmental policy and public health appeared duringthe United Nations Conference on Environment andDevelopment AGENDA 21 that took place in July 1992in the city of Rio de Janeiro. The precaution principle isa new way of thinking about environmental protection andhealth protection and is based in the fact that we shouldnot expose people and environment to damages (ScudelerFCSR 2005). There are some international organizationsdeveloping such kind of research, like the W orld HealthOrganization (WHO), the International Commission onNon-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), the Ramp2001 Project, the Reflex project and the EuropeanFramework Programs for Research and TechnologyDevelopment. Nowadays, many countries, includingBrazil, do not permit EMF lab experiments with humans.

Even though under an ethic view such an attitude mightbe considered to be appreciated, contemporary society isstill dependent of electromagnetic contamination. Thelack of knowledge or disbelief about such risks and itsconsequences by the health professionals turn theperception of such kind of disorder a lot more difficult.

The technological progress of the current world hasput us in front of an excessive radiation exhibition in ourenvironment which turns into compromising theenvironmental health and thus resulting in a variety ofrisks and implications to collective health. The mostalarming fact is that a sound perception does not existthrough our basic senses, only certain subjectivesensations in more susceptible persons. Even moreaggravating is the overwhelming growth of innumerablepolluters and toxic agents threatening the ecologicequilibrium system, which at the end produce, as a resultof this atmospheric pollution, an extraordinary growth ofelectromagnetic radiation on the earth atmosphere,especially ELF.

As the frequency of the ELF type and, in anequivalent way to the Schumann’s waves, they are usedas a basic reference for the operation of the cycles ofcerebral activity. Therefore, significant modifications inthat spectrum of frequencies can produce disturbances inthat biological circuit and to commit the state ofhealthy balance of their functional processes (Nair andRes. J. Environ. Earth Sci., 3(2): 81-89, 201188

****, 1989). Consequently, it ends for corrupting thepsychic apparel making it difficult the perception of theorigin of such compromising. Once, the serotonin and themelatonin are marked, up to this point, as the mostcommitted neurohormones for the variations of the EMradiations. Thus, for the effect of the harmfulness of EMFand its EMR it is possible to cause modifications in thebiological rhythms, for they reach those most importantneurohormones of circadian cycle, which are somehowresponsible for the regulation of the internal metabolism.

Such alterations subsequently commit the circadianpacemakers and secondarily they can provoke upset in thephysiopathology of the humor, especially in the bipolaraffective disorder.

According to the above mentioned arguments, theEM radiations really act as factors that might provokedisorders and infirmities, but we must take into accountthe individual susceptibility to such radiations and theproper functioning of the immunological system in face ofsuch occurrences.

Message to Public Schools about Wireless Devices

If wireless devices, such as Wi-Fi, are used in your schools, then the health of your staff, your teachers, and your students can be at risk. But this problem can be successfully addressed, and with benefit to all.

Background: Wireless devices transmit information using radiofrequency/microwave radiation. The international biomedical research community has been studying the impact of such radiation on biological systems for decades, but more intensely in recent years. The vast majority of the thousands of peer-reviewed research publications of this community, when funded independent of the wireless industries, are finding biological effects of concern. Further, these biological effects occur at levels of radiation far lower than earlier understood. Simply stated, a worldwide health crisis is emerging and is becoming a hallmark of the 21st Century. The international biomedical research community is trying to warn us; but, as a society, we are not yet listening. I hope that this message will help to change that.

As a scientist, I urge you to look into the health impact of the radiofrequency/microwave radiation produced by wireless devices. Examples of wireless devices of concern in our environment are Wi-Fi in all of its forms;

cell phones and cell towers (especially those located on school grounds); cordless phones; wireless computers, whether desktop, laptop, or tablet models; wireless baby monitors; wireless smart electricity meters;

emerging wireless smart appliances; and microwave ovens (which leak radiation).

This crisis is the consequence of many factors. Here are some of them:

 All living things are bioelectrical in nature. That is why electrocardiograms and electroencephalograms work. They, of course, measure the tiny electrical signals that operate the heart and the brain. The critical tasks performed by these tiny electrical signals, and so many other electrical signals in all living things, can be disrupted by radiofrequency/microwave radiation.

 The levels of manmade radiofrequency/microwave radiation in our environment are increasing exponentially and already exceed, by many orders of magnitude, the levels at which all life on Earth evolved. Simply stated, we are drowning in a rising sea of manmade radiofrequency/microwave radiation.

 The invisible nature of radiofrequency/microwave radiation leaves the public and the decision-makers unaware of the rising levels of radiation around them.

 The genuine usefulness of wireless devices promotes denial of the risks.

 The intense advertising, the economic power, and the political power of profitable wireless industries enable them to dominate the public dialogue and to hold sway over government regulators and legislators.

 Current Federal standards for limiting the exposure of the public to radiofrequency/microwave radiation are outdated and overly permissive. Those standards are based on thermal heating alone. In effect, the Government claims that if you are not cooked too much by the radiation, then you are fine. Those Federal standards ignore the many biological effects that occur at much lower levels of radiation, leaving the public unprotected.

 Federal and state governments are advocating unlimited expansion of wireless technology, and are even co-funding such expansion and mandating the acceptance of wireless technology by the public. Such **** 2 of 6

actions reflect a widespread lack of understanding of, or willful blindness to, the underlying science and its consequences for public health.

 Some of the more serious consequences of exposure to radiofrequency/microwave radiation (such as DNA damage, cancer, and infertility) are especially nefarious because they give no early warning signs.

 Other consequences of exposure do give early warning signs (such as sleep disruption, headaches, fatigue, ringing in the ears, memory loss, dizziness, heart arrhythmia, and many others); but those signs are too often dismissed because they can have other causes as well, complicating identification of the true cause.

 The absence of routine training of physicians in the biological effects of radiofrequency/microwave radiation makes it difficult for physicians to identify the causes and to provide responsive guidance.

 Even aware individuals cannot control their exposure in any environment shared with others, because the radiation around them, much like second-hand smoke, is forced on them by unaware individuals. Only governments can effectively solve this problem, and they are currently part of the problem. For now the public will have to protect itself, and that will require public education.

Fortunately, many of the services that wireless devices offer can be realized with much safer wired devices.

The wired devices achieve connectivity with fiber-optic, coaxial, or Ethernet cables. The wired devices are faster, more reliable, and more cyber secure. They are, however, less mobile, often less convenient, and somewhat more expensive to install. But those drawbacks pale in comparison to the benefits of good health.

Simply stated, public schools can protect their staff, teachers, and students from the health risks posed by wireless devices, including Wi-Fi, by converting to safe wired connectivity, using shielded Ethernet cable.

Further, students can be taught about the safe use of technology and can take home what they learn to protect their families.

As a suggested starting place in exploring the concerns about radiation from wireless devices, I have appended an “Annotated **** of References” and an “Annotated **** of Videos”. Please view, especially, video (1) called “Wi-Fi in Schools, the Facts”, made in Australia, on page 6.

My background

I am a retired U.S. Government scientist (Ph.D., Applied Physics, Harvard University, 1975). During my Government career, I worked for the Executive Office of the President, the National Science Foundation, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. For those organizations, respectively, I addressed Federal research and development program evaluation, energy policy research, and measurement development in support of the electronics and electrical-equipment industries and the biomedical research community. I currently interact with other scientists and with physicians around the world on the impact of the environment – including the radiofrequency/microwave environment – on human health.

**** 3 of 6

The international biomedical research community has conducted thousands of studies seeking to identify the biological effects of exposure to both low frequency and radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, extending into the microwave region. So many of these studies have found serious biological effects from such fields, at levels earlier thought to be safe, that immediate steps are needed to alert the public and to lower permitted exposure levels.

The most massive review of this biomedical literature is the 1479-page BioInitiative 2012 Report which considered about 1800 biomedical research publications, most issued in the previous five years. The BioInitiative 2012 Report was prepared by an international body of 29 experts, heavy in Ph.D.s and M.D.s, from 10 countries, including the USA which contributed the most experts (10). The review concludes that “The continued rollout of wireless technologies and devices puts global public health at risk from unrestricted wireless commerce unless new, and far lower[,] exposure limits and strong precautionary warnings for their use are implemented.”

BioInitiative Working Group, **** Sage, M.A. and **** O. ****, M.D., Editors, BioInitiative Report: A Rationale for Biologically-based Public Exposure Standards for Electromagnetic Radiation, December 31, 2012

A group of six doctors in Oregon, led by **** Dart, M.D., released, in **** 2013, a 74-page review of 279 biomedical research publications. This review makes the health case against “cell phones, base stations, Wi-Fi, **** Meters and other RF [radiofrequency] or ELF [extremely low frequency] -emitting devices”. The review notes that “The current levels of exposure need to be reduced rather than increased further. The FCC [Federal Communications Commission] must especially protect vulnerable groups in the population including children and teenagers, pregnant women, men of reproductive age, individuals with compromised immune systems, seniors, and workers.” This review is posted on the website of the FCC at the link entitled "Health Effects of RF - Research Review (87)".

Biological and Health Effects of Microwave Radio Frequency Transmissions, A Review of the Research Literature, A Report to the Staff and Directors of the **** Water and Electric Board, **** 4, 2013

**** Bevington, in 2013, published a book that summarizes the findings of 1828 international biomedical research publications. The book describes the symptoms caused by exposure to electromagnetic radiation, the many diseases associated with such exposure, and the relative risk levels associated with specific sources of electromagnetic radiation. The citations of papers include the PMID index numbers for easy location on the website of the National Institutes of Health. This website provides the largest index to the biomedical research literature in the world.

Electromagnetic Sensitivity and Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity: A Summary by **** Bevington NEW EDITION: **** 2013

About 200 scientists from 39 countries around the world submitted an international appeal to the United Nations and to the World Health Organization in May 2015. These scientists seek improved protection of the public from harm from the radiation produced by many wireless sources, including "cellular and cordless
**** 4 of 6

phones and their base stations, Wi-Fi, broadcast antennas, smart meters, and baby monitors" among others.

Together, these scientists have published about 2000 research papers on this subject.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer, of the World Health Organization, has already classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as a Class 2B carcinogen ("possible carcinogen"), based primarily on increased risk of brain cancer. That decision was made in 2011. Since then, the research supporting a higher classification of risk ("probable carcinogen", or even "known carcinogen") has continued to build.

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM), which trains physicians in preparation for Board Certification in Environmental Medicine, states: “The AAEM strongly supports the use of wired Internet connections, and encourages avoidance of radiofrequency such as from WiFi, cellular and mobile phones and towers, and ‘smart meters’.” AAEM further states that "The peer reviewed, scientific literature demonstrates the correlation between RF [radiofrequency] exposure and neurological, cardiac, and pulmonary disease as well as reproductive and developmental disorders, immune dysfunction, cancer and other health conditions.

The evidence is irrefutable." The AAEM concludes: “To install WiFi in schools plus public spaces risks a widespread public health hazard that the medical system is not yet prepared to address.” AAEM, Wireless Radiofrequency Radiation in Schools, November 14, 2013

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), whose 60,000 doctors care for our children, supports the development of more restrictive standards for radiofrequency radiation exposure that would better protect the public, particularly the children. The AAP, in a letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), dated **** 29, 2013, states that “Children are not little adults and are disproportionately impacted by all environmental exposures, including cell phone radiation. Current FCC standards do not account for the unique vulnerability and use patterns specific to pregnant women and children. It is essential that any new standard for cell phones or other wireless devices be based on protecting the youngest and most vulnerable populations to ensure they are safeguarded throughout their lifetimes.”

The U.S. Government bears a major responsibility for the exponential growth in the levels of radiation from wireless devices in the environment. In 1996, the U.S. Congress passed, and the President signed, the Telecommunications Act of 1996. Under pressure from the cell phone industries, this law included this provision: “No State or local government or instrumentality thereof may regulate the placement, construction, and modification of personal wireless service facilities [cell towers] on the basis of the environmental effects of radio frequency emissions to the extent that such facilities comply with the [Federal Communications] Commission's regulations concerning such emissions.” Because the Federal Communications Commission’s regulations on radiation exposure are so permissive, this provision prevents state and local governments from protecting their people from radiation from cell towers, based on health concerns.

Telecommunications Act of 1996
**** 5 of 6

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has acted in partnership with the wireless industries by permitting wireless radiation levels far higher than the biomedical research literature indicates are necessary to protect human health. The success of the wireless industries in capturing the FCC, the committees in the U.S. Congress that oversee the FCC, and the Executive Branch is detailed in a new monograph from the Center for Ethics at Harvard University. As an example of that capture, the President recently appointed, as head of the FCC, the former head of the CTIA – The Wireless Association, which is the major lobbying organization for the wireless industry. This, of course, is the infamous "revolving door".

**** Alster, Captured Agency: How the Federal Communications Commission is Dominated by the Industries It Presumably Regulates (2015) Further, the U.S. Government’s “American Recovery and Investment Act of 2009” provided funding that was used to motivate the installation of wireless smart meters (also called the “Advanced Metering Infrastructure” or “AMI”) by offering cost sharing to the utilities that would adopt such meters. Many states then extended the impact of the above Act by mandating the acceptance of wireless smart meters by the public. These meters contain microwave transmitters/receivers and are placed either on, or inside, every home. A California court-ordered document indicates that each smart meter broadcasts bursts of radiation, on average about 10,000 times per day and up to a maximum of about 190,000 times per day.

Such bursts flood neighborhoods with radiation, every day and every night throughout the year.

Increasingly, the public is becoming aware of the threat that wireless radiation poses to health. The initial opposition focuses primarily on mandated sources of exposure, especially when the individuals exposed include the unborn and young children as they are among the most vulnerable. Thus, the strongest initial opposition is surfacing for cell towers, especially on school grounds; for Wi-Fi in schools; and for wireless smart meters placed on, or inside, homes. Most states now have opposition groups, and some states have even 10 or 20 such groups. These groups are pursuing relief through state regulatory bodies, through state legislatures, and through the courts. Below is a sampling of the hundreds of U.S. websites that reflect the nature and scope of the opposition to the unbridled expansion of wireless technology. Such websites seek to educate the public and decision-makers, and thus to promote responsive action, based on the underlying science.

My comments:

Excerpted below are the sections of this review paper by Nazıroğlu and Akman (2014) that address blood-brain barrier penetration. ****-brain barrier penetration after exposure to low intensity (as opposed to greater intensity) microwave radiation has been observed in various studies since it was first reported by **** Frey in 1975.

This phenomenon is problematic for the development of safe RF regulatory standards as well as for the development of harm reduction recommendations via personal behavior change. I would be interested in learning what other people think about this line of research, especially its policy implications.

"Studies have shown that neurological damage can be observed at exposure levels of 0.12 mW/kg (Eberhardt et al. 2008). This is less than one eighth of the average exposure level of 1 mW/kg found 150–200 m from a mobile phone mast. The researchers concluded that 'the weakest fields are the biologically most harmful'.”

Effects of Cellular Phone- and Wi-Fi-Induced Electromagnetic Radiation on Oxidative Stress and Molecular Pathways in Brain

**** Nazıroğlu, Hatice Akman. Effects of Cellular Phone- and Wi-Fi-Induced Electromagnetic Radiation on Oxidative Stress and Molecular Pathways in Brain.

Systems Biology of Free Radicals and Antioxidants. 2014, pp 2431-244.


It has been suggested that the widespread use of cellular telephones and wireless devices may result in increased health risks resulting from brain exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR). The situation has prompted many investigations into the interaction between EMR and neuronal cells, even at intensities not able to produce thermal effects. This chapter reviews the effects of Wi-Fi (2.45 GHz) EMR exposure on the central nervous system in humans and experimental animals.

Several studies have suggested that EMR emitted by wireless devices can interfere with learning mailto:******@***.com


and memory in both animal models and human, but the results obtained are controversial and the molecular basis of this interaction is still unclear. Electromagnetic radiation may induce some degenerative effects in the brain by increasing oxidative stress and DNA breakage plus interference with the blood–brain barrier permeability. There are also recent reports on the role of Wi-Fi and mobile phone frequencies on Ca2+ influx through Ca2+ channels. The EMR increases ROS production in the neurons through the activation of oxidant system including NADPH oxidase activity and nitric oxide production. These effects are accompanied by a decrease in brain tissue of enzymatic antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase together with a fall in the levels of nonenzymatic antioxidants such as glutathione and vitamin C.

Cell phone- and Wi-Fi-induced EMR appears to induce degenerative effects through increase of oxidative stress and decrease of antioxidants in the brain that affect neuronal physiological functions. Antioxidants seem to counteract the effects on the EMR, however.

Safe Doses of Wi-Fi in Brain

Most of the studies that have been conducted while investigating the biological effects of Wi-Fi on humans have mainly dealt with the amount of energy absorbed by the human tissue. They are somewhat limited, however, with regard to measurements of the specific absorption rate (SAR).

SAR is a rate of energy absorbed by a unit mass of the object and usually expressed by the parameter W/kg2. We may liken the intensity of RF rate to a quantity of novalgin (analgesic) tablets. If, say, there are 100 mg of novalgin per tablet, we cannot decide anything about the efficacy of the tablets unless we also know the amount of the tablets taken, e.g., two tablets taken every 4 h (or 200 mg every 4 h). The amount of a drug absorbed into the body is the main determinant of its effect (Lai and **** 1996).

There are also ongoing dosimetry studies that measure RF levels around the globe, including that coming from various sources including wireless local area networks (WLANs) which indicate that the associated exposure level is low (Foster and Glaser 2007). Martínez‐Búrdalo and **** (2009) reported that measuring local energy SAR rates in different areas of the brain in a rat exposed to RF rate revealed that two brain regions that are spaced less than a millimeter apart can have more than a twofold difference in SAR. **** et al. (1995) also reported that the peak (hot spot) for SAR in the head tissue of a user of a mobile telephone can range from 2–8 W/kg2 per watt output of the device. The peak energy output of mobile telephones can range from 0.6–1 W, although the average output is closer to 0.6 than to 1.0 Studies have shown that neurological damage can be observed at exposure levels of 0.12 mW/kg (Eberhardt et al.

2008). This is less than one eighth of the average exposure level of 1 mW/kg found 150–200 m from a mobile phone mast. The researchers concluded that “the weakest fields are the biologically most harmful.”

Yioultsis et al. (2002) studied the occurrence of considerable differences in electric field or SAR values. They also demonstrated high radiation absorption by the head, which, apart from any possible biological damage, caused a rise in brain temperature after a 10-min exposure. Although both SAR values and the thermal rise in the case of a WLAN are one or two orders of magnitude than before exposure, the issue of prolonged exposure is raised, since it is found that the safety limits for long exposure are also marginally violated.

**** et al. (2010) studied the dosimetry levels during exposure to the electromagnetic (EM) field associated with the Wi-Fi frequency band (2,412–2,484 MHz).

The exposure system they developed allows experiments to be performed for the evaluation of biological effects of electromagnetic field exposure during early life. They found that average whole-body SAR drastically changes during the exposure period according to the size and weight of the new born mice.

**** – brain barrier permeability

(b) ****–brain barrier permeability: It has been known for years that EMR has the potential to alter the permeability of the blood–brain barrier. Salford et al. (2003) and Nittby et al. (2009) report on various studies of the effect of EMR. The danger of a break in the blood–brain barrier is that the brain ceases to be protected from compounds in the blood that are harmful to the nervous system.

Salford et al. (1997) exposed rats to microwave radiation at an intensity equivalent to that received by a mobile phone user. They investigated the ease by which substances toxic to the central nervous system can cross over from the blood into the brain and found that the blood–brain barrier breaks down after a 2-min exposure. They demonstrated consequent neural damage especially in subjects of middle age and deduced that mobile phone use can precipitate degenerative brain effects. In addition, Nittby et al. (2008) and Nittby et al. (2009) and Salford (2007) have found that very low emission energy levels cause more leakage across the blood–brain barrier than higher levels.

Franke et al. (2005) reported that no changes in the blood–brain barrier permeability to sucrose occurred in response to constant exposure, over a period of 1–5 days, to a mobile phone signal at 1,800 MHz. Grafstrom et al. (2008) similarly could find no change in the permeability of the blood–brain barrier to several types of markers and observed no dark neurons or neuronal damage after exposing rats to a mobile phone 900 signal with an SAR of 0.6 or 60 mW/kg for 2 h per week, over a period of 55 weeks. Masuda et al. (2009) observed the passage of plasma protein albumin across the blood–brain barrier and no appearance of dark neurons in experiments. McQuade et al. (2009) observed no effect of a 30-min exposure to modulated GSM 915 MHz (two types of modulation: 217 Hz and 16 Hz) or to a continuous signal (SAR of 0.0018–20 W/kg in male rats). Poulletier De Gannes et al. (2009) also detected no effect on blood–brain barrier integrity or neuronal degeneration. These authors also assessed neuronal apoptosis. Cosquer et al. (2005) observed no effect of semi-chronic exposure to 2.45 GHz pulses (2 μs, 500 Hz) for 45 min per day over 10 days, using neither indirect observations based on cognitive tests nor by the passage of **** blue dye across the blood–brain barrier (study carried out on 36 male rats). For the cognitive tests, the authors investigated whether radio frequency modified the behavioral response of the animals to the injection of a muscarinic antagonist (scopolamine) that crosses the blood–brain barrier only poorly. The response of the cage control rats differed from those seen in the sham-exposed and exposed rats (effect of stress), despite habituation to handling before testing.

We have reviewed the literature to better understand the effects of Wi-Fi on human health, especially on brain neural activity. Wi-Fi may affect cell function via nonthermal effects. The EMR exposure can increase ROS formation and decrease cognitive function and antioxidant values by second messengers that cause increases in the activity of plasma membrane NADH oxidase and PKC activation. Prolonged exposure to EMR can also damage DNA which may accelerate neuronal cell death. Ca2+ is important in neuronal cells for physiological function and pathophysiological function such as cell proliferation and apoptosis. The results from relatively few recent papers indicate that Ca2+ influx is increased in neuronal cells through the activation of TRP channels and VGCC following EMR exposure. Future studies should therefore be aimed at identifying the specific intracellular pathways and calcium channels that transduce Wi-Fi-induced changes in calcium influx into signal capabilities of exposed brain and neurons.

Captain (retired) J.G. ****, CD (Electronic Warfare Specialist) The Writer’s Assertion

1933 – Russian Research

Russia has systematically studied electromagnetic bio-effects on all life forms: plants, animals & people since 1933.

Found harmful effects from even the weakest radiation intensities - depended greatly on frequency used and cumulative effect.

Caused the Russians to drastically reduce their own safety levels by a factor of 1,000!

Cellular Radiation Is This Our Next Titanic? Pp 77 The Body Electric, pp 289, Dr. **** Becker, Md U.S Embassy – Moscow (’53–’76)

(6-8 Hours a Day, 5 Days Week)

Was irradiated with M/W frequencies at intensities of 0.1 to 24µW/cm², ie., about 1,000 times lower than the US ‘standard’ of 10 mW/cm².

• 2 ambassadors died of cancer;

• 3rd developed leukemia-like blood disease & bleeding eyes & eventually died from it;

• At least 16 women developed breast cancer;

• Many other staff suffered adverse health effects, e.g. immune system disorders, high white blood cell counts, chromosomal breaks, chronic fatigue, cataracts, etc.

• U.S. KNEW but DIDN’T TELL embassy for about 15 years!

1953 – Exposure Limits and
Fear of Lawsuits

Participants at the Bethesda, Maryland navy conference understood that once a standard was set lawsuits could become an issue. “The simplest way to avoid lawsuits would be to resist setting standards below existing exposure levels, but resisting lowering standards for legal reasons would again bring nonscientific pressure to bear on standard setting.

The Microwave Debate, **** H. Steneck, pp 47 Bell Laboratories, alarmed by reports of sterility and baldness among its own workers as well as military radar personnel, suggested a safety level of 100 microwatts, a hundred times less than the USA Limit of 10mW/cm² (see **** & Selden, 1984). 1954 – Radiation

Sterility and Baldness
1956 – US Dept. of Defense (DOD)

Directed the U.S. Army, Navy & Air Force to investigate the biological effects of exposure to Radio frequency / Microwave (RF/MW) radiation. In 1957 they reported many implications: serious damage to the eye, evidence it can cause cancer, damage to major organs and disruption of important biological processes. Pulsed radiation appears to be more harmful than non-pulsed radiation.

to U.S. Congress about EMR

Raytheon’s Microwave Division informed Congress there was no problem to solve, that studies concluded that:

1) The biological effects of microwave energy are thermal.

2) The effects are non-cumulative.

3) Man has a built-in alarm system coupled with his threshold of pain that protects him from thermal injury.”

Disagrees with Raytheon

Dr. Schwan, who established USA’s Exposure Limit of 10 mW/cm², disagreed with Raytheon saying there was not sufficient evidence to limit RF bioeffects solely to thermal energy. Nor would he discount possibility of genetic and cumulative effects completely. **** more studies were needed.

The Microwave Debate, **** H. Steneck, pp 125 1968 – President **** Johnson’s

State of the Union Address

He pledged to keep Americans “safe in their homes and at work.” Part of the new deal consumers were being promised was

“protection against hazardous radiation from TV sets and other electronic equipment.” This became law when he signed the Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act. on Oct. 18, 1968.

New **** Times, January 18, 1968 Public Law 90-602, Oct 18, 1968 1970s – RF Bioeffects Research

Throughout the 70s approximately two of every three research dollars spent on RF bio-effects research can be traced to the navy, air force or army.

With this support inevitably came control.

Signals are Dangerous!

Researchers had known since the early ‘70s that a properly modulated signal could interfere with normal brain activity.

1971 – Naval Medical Research
Institute (NMRI)

The U.S. military had by 1971 compiled 2300 reports on the biological responses to radio and microwave frequency

(RF/MW) radiation - - which paid

particular attention to the effects on man of non-ionizing radiation at these frequencies. **** Byrd, a scientist for the Naval Surface Weapons Centre, USN, said about M/W radiation in 1986: 'We can alter the behaviour of tissues, cells, organs and whole organisms.... you can cause up to six times higher foetus mortality and birth defects in laboratory animals, and it is known how to induce malignant diseases in human cells … and how to cure them…” Project Pandora (1954-1971)

1974 – RF/MW Radiation and
Cardiovascular Disease

Produced by the Pineal gland, melatonin is a powerful cancer-fighting hormone produced in the body at night. Sleeping in a room surrounded by our favourite devices – cordless phone, cell phone, digital clock, CD/radio player, computer and TV – can seriously suppress melatonin production.

One of melatonin’s most important

functions is to release estrogen, which suppresses the development of breast cancers - 70% of which are estrogen sensitive. When EMR inhibits the

Dr. **** Lai, a University of Washington scientist in cellular and molecular engineering, who reviewed 85 papers on the DNA-damaging effects of the type of EMR from cell phones found:

 75% of studies funded by the wireless industry or the military showed no genotoxic effects,  80% of studies done by independent scientists showed harmful effects. The levels of RFR needed to affect the blood-brain-barrier have been shown to be as low as 0.001 W/kg, or less than holding a mobile phone at arm’s length. The US FCC standard is 1.6 W/kg; the ICNIRP standard is 2 W/kg of energy (SAR) into brain tissue from cell/cordless phone use. Thus, BBB effects occur at about 1000 times lower RFR exposure levels than the US and ICNIRP limits allow. 2012 - Fragility of Human Brain

Electric Utilities Say:

**** Meters have a Switched Mode **** Supply (SMPS) to convert 110/220V AC to low voltage DC power, which constantly creates powerful spikes of EMF and RF -- “dirty” electricity -- as the meter switches back and forth from AC to DC. This gets on house wiring, couples to water and gas pipes, travels into other buildings, and travels on and radiates from power lines. Trojan Horse – “SMPS”

Researchers Conclude Wireless Radiation Causes Cancer After Latest Scientific FindingsAnnounced

Source: National Assoc. For Children and Safe TechnologyDated: Feb. 03, 2015

National advocacy group calls on major children’s health organizations to promote safe technology inschools with the "Turn It Off 4 Kids" Initiative

The National Association for Children and Safe Technology (NACST) is taking action after two recentlypublished studies indicate there is sufficient evidence demonstrating exposure to wireless radiation, alsoknown as RF-EMF, causes cancer. Wireless routers and devices such as tablets, laptops, baby monitors andcell phones all emit this type of radiation.

NACST is calling on children’s health and cancer prevention organizations to make the issue of children'shealth and exposure to wireless radiation in educational settings an immediate priority for 2015.

The State of the Science: The Debate is Over

Professor of Oncology **** Hardell, MD, PhD, and Statistician **** Carlberg of Orebro UniversityHospital, Sweden found a 3-fold risk with 25 or more years of cell and cordless phone use in a studypublished October 2014 in Pathophysiology. Very significant was the finding that people who first usedmobile or cordless phones before the age of 20 had the highest risk.

Increased wireless phone use also correlated with lower survival rates for people diagnosed with the mostmalignant gliomas in a second study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research andPublic Health by the same researchers. Hardell and Carlberg stated, “Due to the relationship with survival,the classification is strengthened.” In both studies, the authors state that RF-EMF should be regarded as ahuman carcinogen, “requiring urgent revision of current exposure guidelines.”These two studies followed the July 2014 Occupational and Environmental Medicine Journal publicationof the CERENAT case controlled study where **** researchers found almost a 3-fold increase in braincancer with 896 or more hours of lifetime cell phone use.

Based on the accumulation of research demonstrating the health effects from wireless radiation, ProfessorOlle Johansson of the Karolinska Department of Neuroscience has stated, “the debate is over” on wireless.

“Given the established and emerging science, it only follows that students be provided a safe learningenvironment, free from wireless radiation,” stated an NACST spokesperson.

Scientists Call for the World Health Organization to Reclassify RF-EMFIn 2011, the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified RF radiation as aClass 2B, “possible human carcinogen.” Since 2011, several of the World Health Organization invitedscientists have called for a reclassification to an increased risk level. The abstracts of these 2014 studiesstate that RF should now be regarded as a “Group 1 Human Carcinogen,” placing it in the same category astobacco, asbestos and benzene.

In light of these recent scientific publications and expert warnings, NACST is reaching out to healthorganizations asking them to prioritize the issue of children’s health and wireless exposures in educationalsettings for 2015 in the following ways:

1. Call for all new school technology to be hardwired.

2. Call to replace existing wireless technology systems with hardwired systems.

3. Call for the implementation of primary prevention efforts such as educating the public about simple stepsto reduce exposure, especially in regard to children and pregnant women.

4. Educate their organization’s members and audience on this issue by emails, informational web pages,updated materials, and all other means possible.

Expert Endorsements

NASCT’s Initiative has been endorsed by several prominent scientists, physicians and safety advocatesincluding Drs. **** Hardell, Olle Johansson, **** Miller and **** Leszczynski. Dr. Leszczynskiwas a participating scientist in the WHO IARC panel on RF-EMF and cancer, and Dr. **** has served asDirector of the Epidemiology Unit, National Cancer Institute of Canada, Toronto.

I do not support wireless communication at all. I have a cell phone that I rarely use, my computer is hardwired as our laptops are as well. My phone service comes in over a cable as well. Wireless technology has been proven to be dangerous to the health and well being on all living creatures. Study after study have been published showing the dangers of wireless technology and it's very bad health risks to all. Wireless tech takes some freedoms away from people who already have Electrohypersensitivity Disorder by all the WI-FI Hot Spots placed in restaurants, public buildings and now parks. I have other health problems and am a cancer survivor and this also affects thousands of people like me because we don't want our cancers to return or have any other health problem get worse. RF has been proven to cross the blood brain barrier which doctors said for years was impossible. I suffer from this problem that is medically known as Chemo Brain. I have lost memories, I will say things that don't make sense and I can't get some words out and I get very frustrated. I was getting better until more wireless has been installed in our community and all of a sudden the problems are back. Especially not being able to finish a sentence because I can't get the words out. Wireless communication of any kind is especially harmful to children. Their skulls are thinner and absorb massive amounts of RF radiation from use of cell phones. Wifi in schools is causing illness in both teachers and childrens. Symptoms of Autism, behavioral changes, headaches and in one school in Ontario children ended up having to wear heart monitors and children were having heart attacks. I am attaching some literature for you to read and learn about the dangers of wireless technologyKathy Read

Computer simulation using MRI scans of children is the only possible way to determine themicrowave radiation (MWR) absorbed in specific tissues in children. Children absorb moreMWR than adults because their brain tissues are more absorbent, their skulls are thinnerand their relative size is smaller. MWR from wireless devices has been declared a possiblehuman carcinogen. Children are at greater risk than adults when exposed to any carcinogen.

Because the average latency time between first exposure and diagnosis of a tumor can bedecades, tumors induced in children may not be diagnosed until well into adulthood. Thefetus is particularly vulnerable to MWR. MWR exposure can result in degeneration of theprotective myelin sheath that surrounds brain neurons. MWR-emitting toys are being soldfor use by young infants and toddlers. Digital dementia has been reported in school agechildren. A case study has shown when cellphones are placed in teenage girls’ bras multipleprimary breast cancer develop beneath where the phones are placed. MWR exposure limitshave remained unchanged for 19 years. All manufacturers of smartphones have warningswhich describe the minimum distance at which phone must be kept away from users inorder to not exceed the present legal limits for exposure to MWR. The exposure limit forlaptop computers and tablets is set when devices are tested 20 cm away from the body.

Belgium, ****, **** and other technologically sophisticated governments are passinglaws and/or issuing warnings about children’s use of wireless devices.

1. Introduction

Here we discuss: how the amount of MWR can be cal-culated, children’s greater absorption of MWR comparedto adults’ adsorption, MWR’s listing as a Class 2B (possible)carcinogen, the existing legal limits for human exposure toMWR, and that the existing legal limits do not incorporatethe greater exposure to children.

1.1. Computer simulation

The finite-difference, time-domain (FDTD) computeralgorithm has been the best way to simulate the amountof absorbed MWR in tissues for many decades. In 1997the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) stated,“Currently, the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) algo-rithm is the most widely accepted computational methodfor SAR modeling. This method adapts very well to the tis-sue models that are usually derived from MRI or CT scans.

FDTD method offers great flexibility in modeling the inho-mogeneous structures of anatomical tissues and organs.

The FDTD method has been used in many far-field electro-magnetic applications during the last three decades. Withrecent advances in computer technology, it has becomepossible to apply this method to near-field applications forevaluating handsets” [1].

1.2. Children’s greater absorption of MWR

There are multiple studies showing that children absorbmore MWR than adults. In 1996 a study reported that theabsorbed MWR penetrated proportionally deeper into thebrain of children age 5 and 10 compared to adults’ brains[2].

Please cite this article in press as: **** LL, et al. Why childconsequences. J Microsc Ultrastruct (2014), 2008 Joe Wiart, a senior researcher for **** tele-com and Orange reported that the brain tissue of childrenabsorbed about two times more MWR than adults’ braintissue [3].

In 2010, **** Christ and team reported children’shippocampus and hypothalamus absorbs 1.6–3.1 timeshigher and the cerebellum absorbs 2.5 times higher MWRcompared to adults’; children’s bone marrow absorbs 10times higher MWR radiation than in adults, and children’seyes absorb higher MWR than adults [5]. These calculationswere based on porcine measurements taken from sacrificedanimals.

1.3. Microwave radiation is a Class 2B (possible)carcinogen

After 30 experts from 14 countries reviewed the science,the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) InternationalAgency for Research on Cancer (IARC) declared that RF-EMF[MWR] is a Class 2B (possible) carcinogen [6]. It was a nearunanimous declaration (one dissenter).

Including MWR, there are 285 agents listed by WHO’sIARC as Class 2B carcinogens [7]. Exposures to almostall of these agents are regulated. Some of the commonlyrecognized agents are: carbon black, carbon tetrachlo-ride, chloroform, DDT, lead, nickel, phenobarbital, styrene,diesel fuel, and gasoline.

Like these other Class 2B Carcinogens, should anyone,particularly children, be exposed to MWR?

.4. Exposure limits

In 1996, the FCC adopted the IEEE 1991[11] standardith some details from the 1986 NCRP Report [12] as expo-ure limits in the United States. Nineteen years after theCC exposure limits were published, based on documentsublished 24 and 29 years previously, the legal exposureimit has remained unchanged. Yet during these decades annormous body of scientific studies was published repor-ing risk well below the legal exposure limit.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronic EngineersIEEE) is an industry professional organization, as is theational Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP). Neitherrganization had medical or public health expertise.

In European countries and a few other countries, thexposure limits are based on the 1998 “Guidelines” of thenternational Commission for Non-Ionizing Radiation Pro-ection (ICNIRP) [13]. These “Guidelines” were based onublications from 1984, 1987, 1991, and 1993 [page 494].

hat is the “Guidelines” were based on publications up to1 years ago, Similar to the IEEE and NCRP, ICNIRP is anrganization without medical or public health expertise. Its accountable to no government and its funding sourcesre not transparent.

.4.1. The 19 year old IEEE and 17 year old ICNIRPxposure limits are based on a false premiseThe exposure limits are premised on an assumptionhat the only biological effect from MWR exposure is acuteshort-term) heating sufficient to cause tissue damage.

here is no consideration of the effects from chronic (long-erm) exposures. There are many scientific papers thateport biological impacts tied with non-thermal (no mea-urable temperature change) effects. Indeed, the 480-pageARC Monograph 102 that documents the science that ledo the declaration that MWR is a Class 2B (possible) car-inogen is a virtual compendium of such papers [14].

.4.2. FCC compliance requirements do not comport withurrent testing systems

The FCC requires “For purposes of evaluating compli-nce with localized SAR guidelines, portable devices shoulde tested or evaluated based on normal operating positionsr conditions” [15]. But phones are not tested in pants orhirt pockets. As a result every cellphone manual has war-ings that the phone should be kept at various distancesrom the body otherwise the human exposure limits cane exceeded.

Here are two of many examples:

1) The BlackBerry Torch 9800 **** Phone warns,“keep the BlackBerry device at least 0.98 in. (25 mm)from your body (including the abdomen of pregnantwomen and the lower abdomen of teenagers).” “Lowerabdomen” is an oblique reference to testicles and“abdomen of pregnant women” is an oblique referenceto the fetus.

Please cite this article in press as: **** LL, et al. Why childconsequences. J Microsc Ultrastruct (2014), The iPhone 5’s manual is embedded within the phone:

Users must go to “Settings,” and scroll down to “Gen-eral,” then scroll to the bottom to “About,” go to “Legal,”scroll down to “RF [MWR] Exposure” where it reads, “To PRESS

reduce exposure to RF energy, use a hands-free option,such as the built-in speakerphone, the supplied head-phones, or other similar accessories. Carry iPhone atleast 10 mm away from your body to ensure exposurelevels remain at or below the as-tested [exposure limit]levels.”

1.4.3. There is a 20 cm distance rule for tablets andlaptop computers

“For purposes of these requirements mobile1 devicesare defined by the FCC as transmitters designed to be usedin other than fixed locations and to generally be used insuch a way that a separation distance of at least 20 cm isnormally maintained between radiating structures and thebody of the user or nearby persons” [16].

Clearly, this 20 cm rule contradicts the “normal oper-ating position” regulation in the description “a separationdistance of at least 20 cm is normally maintained.” Indeed,“laptop” computer directly implies that it is to be placed ona lap which is not 20 cm distant from the user.

The growing use of tablets by young children in schoolscontradicts these normal tested conditions as well, as thesechildren have shorter arms that do not allow them to holddevices 20 cm from their bodies.

2. Materials and methods

We have performed a review of the peer-reviewed cell-phone exposure epidemiology from 2009 to 2014, andcellphone dosimetry since the 1970s from a previous paper[17], along with relevant governmental and other policydocuments, manufacturers’ manuals and similar docu-ments.

3. Results
3.1. Early development

Here we present evidence of harmful effects from expo-sure to MWR during early developmental stages both inanimals and in humans.

3.1.1. Fetal exposures

A study from **** University School of Medicineexposed mice in utero to MWR [18]. The study reportedthat these mice were hyperactive and had impaired mem-ory “due to altered neuronal developmental programming.

Exposed mice had dose-responsive impaired glutamater-gic synaptic transmission onto layer V pyramidal neuronsof the prefrontal cortex.” During pregnancy the mice wereirradiated by a cellphone positioned above each cage pos-ren absorb more microwave radiation than adults: The.1016/j.jmau.2014.06.005

1 The FCC defines laptop computers, tablets and similar devices as“mobile devices” in comparison to “portable devices” which are cell andcordless phones and similar devices; the former falls under the 20 cm rule,the latter has no such rule.

similar to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)in children.

A Turkish study reported on a 900 MHz in utero expo-sure of rats [19]. “The results showed that prenatal EMFexposure caused a decrease in the number of granulecells in the dentate gyrus of the rats (p < 0.01). This sug-gests that prenatal exposure to a 900 MHz EMF affects thedevelopment of the dentate gyrus granule cells in the rathippocampus.”

A Chinese study investigated effects of MWR emitted bycellphones on rat CNS, in vitro (cortical neuronal cells) andin vivo (rat’s brain) [20]. Neuronal cells had a significantlyhigher death rate at power densities of 0.05 mW/cm2 andabove. In vivo results show increased apoptosis with DNAfragmentation.

3.1.2. Myelination

A myelin sheath covering neurons acts as an insulationof the electrical activity of neurons. In human embryos, thefirst layer develops from mid-gestation to 2 years of age andcontinues into adolescence [21]. Myelination of the brainis not complete until early adulthood.

There are two studies with reported degeneration of themyelin sheath after MWR exposure:

A 1972 study from Poland reported myelin degenerationand glial cell proliferation in guinea pigs and rabbits froma 3 GHz exposure [22].

In 1977 **** & **** reported a 2.45 GHz expo-sure in rats increased myelin degeneration in rat brains at6 weeks after exposure. They concluded “The results of ourstudy and related investigations by others indicated thatexposures to low-intensity MW irradiation can result bothin transient and in long-term structural anomalies in CNStissue and may result in various hematologic irregularities”[23].

3.2. Children and adolescents

Aydin et al. in a study of cellphone use by children andadolescents (median age 13 years), reported a significantrisk of brain cancer and a significant exposure–responserelationship for >2.8 years since first cellphone subscrip-tion, OR = 2.15, CI = 1.07–4.29, p-trend = 0.001 for increasingrisk with increasing time since first subscription with oper-ator recorded use data (billing records) [24]. Yet the study’sconclusion states, “The absence of an exposure–responserelationship either in terms of the amount of mobile phoneuse . . . argues against a causal association.” It is unclear whythe conclusion directly contradicts the published results.

The study was funded in part by cellphone companies.

A Swedish study reported when first cellphone usebegan as a teenager or younger there was a significant ipsi-lateral risk of brain cancer, OR = 7.8, CI = 2.2–28, p < 0.01,and an almost identical ipsilateral risk from cordless phoneuse, OR = 7.9, CI = 2.5–25, p < 0.001 [9].

A Korean study found risks for ADHD in first grade (ages7–8) children and followed them to ages 12–13 [25]. “ThePlease cite this article in press as: **** LL, et al. Why childconsequences. J Microsc Ultrastruct (2014), symptom risk associated with mobile phone usefor voice calls but the association was limited to childrenexposed to relatively high [blood] lead [levels].” With anaverage time per cellphone call of ½ to <1 min, OR = 5.66,Fig. 1. Increase of parotid gland tumors relative to other salivary glandtumors in ****.

CI = 1.31–24.51 and for 1+ minutes per call, OR = 7.20,CI = 1.37–37.91, p-trend = 0.02. For children playing gamesfor 3+ minutes/day a significant risk for ADHD, OR = 1.94,CI = 1.30–2.89, p < 0.001, and p-trend < 0.001 in the lowerblood lead level group.

Elsewhere it has been shown the low-level exposures toMWR increases the permeability of the blood–brain bar-rier [26–28]. This suggests children exposed to lead whouse cellphone might have increased blood lead levels inthe brain.

3.2.1. Breast cancers resulting from placement ofcellphones in bras

A case study reported 4 women who placed cellphonesin their bras. Two were diagnosed at age 21, with one whohad begun placing her cellphone in her bra at age 15. Thisresulted in multiple primary breast cancers immediatelybeneath where the cellphone were placed [29].

3.2.2. Parotid gland tumors

The parotid gland is a large salivary gland in the cheekimmediately next to where a cellphone is held to the ear.

A Chinese study reported statistically significantincreased risks of 10- to 30-fold [30]. With more than10 years since first use of a cellphone, the risk of epithe-lial parotid gland cancer, OR = 10.631, CI = 5.306–21.300,p < 10−10; similarly the risk for mucoepidermoid carci-noma, OR = 20.72, CI = 9.379–45.821, p < 10−13, and foraverage daily use of >3.5 h, OR = 30.255, CI = 10.799–90.456,p < 10−10.

An Israeli Interphone study found significant risk ofparotid gland tumors [31]. “For ipsilateral use, the oddsratios in the highest category of cumulative number of callsand call time without use of hands-free devices were 1.58(95% confidence interval: 1.11, 2.24) and 1.49 (95% confi-dence interval: 1.05, 2.13), respectively.”Another Israeli study showed that among the 3 salivaryren absorb more microwave radiation than adults: The.1016/j.jmau.2014.06.005

glands, the only increase was the parotid gland [32]. “Thetotal number of parotid gland cancers in **** increased 4-fold from 1970 to 2006 . . . whereas two other salivary glandcancers remained stable.” Fig. 1 illustrates the

ncrease in parotid gland tumors relative to other salivaryland tumors.

A newspaper in **** reported “[S]alivary gland cancer,hich researchers suspect to be linked to cellphone use,as disproportionately common among young patients.

ne fifth of those patients were under 20” [33].

.2.3. Sperm damage

Perhaps more than any other adverse health effectrom exposure to MWR, damage to sperm is the mostocumented including in vitro, in vivo and human epidemi-logical studies.

A 2005 study with data collection from November 2002o **** 2004 examined the motility of sperm. “The pro-ortion of slow progressive motile sperm increased withncrease of the duration of the daily transmission time < 0.01” [34].

A study of cellphone usage among men who attendedn infertility clinic concluded, “Use of cell phones decreasehe semen quality in men by decreasing the sperm count,otility, viability, and normal morphology. The decreasen sperm parameters was dependent on the duration ofaily exposure to cell phones and independent of the initialemen quality” [35].

A Japanese study reported “This study has indicated sig-ificant decrease in sperm count [p = 0.004] and motilityp = 0.003] . . . because of exposure to MP [Mobile Phone]mission, respectively” [36].

An Australian study investigated how sperm cells areamaged by cellphone MWR. Its conclusions stated “RF-MR [Radio Frequency-Electro Magnetic Radiation] in bothhe power density and frequency range of mobile phonesnhances mitochondrial reactive oxygen species genera-ion by human spermatozoa, decreasing the motility anditality of these cells while stimulating DNA base adductormation and, ultimately DNA fragmentation. These find-ngs have clear implications for the safety of extensiveobile phone use by males of reproductive age, potentiallyffecting both their fertility and the health and well-beingf their offspring” [37].

Professor Stanton A. Glantz is a Professor of Medicine athe University of California, San **** Medical School.

e is also author of a renowned graduate level statisticsextbook, Primer of Biostatistics, Seventh Edition [38]. Refer-ing to the above four studies on sperm damage from MWRe concludes:

“Taking all the information we have discussed on cellphones and sperm allows us to confidently concludethat exposure to cell phones adversely effects sperm.”A study of temperature controlled human sperm placed cm beneath a laptop computer connected to Wi-Fi for h [39] reported, “Donor sperm samples, mostly normo-oospermic [normal sperm], exposed ex vivo during 4 h to wireless internet-connected laptop showed a significantecrease in progressive sperm motility and an increase inPlease cite this article in press as: **** LL, et al. Why childconsequences. J Microsc Ultrastruct (2014), DNA fragmentation.” The study concluded “Ex vivoxposure of human spermatozoa to a wireless internet-onnected laptop decreased motility and induced DNAragmentation by a nonthermal effect.

keeping a laptop connected wirelessly to the internet on thelap near the testes may result in decreased male fertility.”3.3. Tumor latency times

The average time between exposure to a carcinogenand the diagnosis of a resultant solid tumor is 3 or moredecades. Brain tumors, like lung cancer and many othersolid tumors have, on average, long latency times [8,40].

Therefore, it may be several decades before tumors inducedby current MWR exposures in children are diagnosed. Forexample, the Israeli study showing brain tumor risk wasinverse with age had long latency times [8]. In contrast theAydin et al. study had relatively short latency times [24].

4. Discussion

4.1. Wireless device exposure limit certificationThe FCC has approved two processes to certify that awireless device meets the required exposure limit:

(1) The computer simulation process, and

(2) The Specific Anthropomorphic Mannequin (SAM) pro-cess.

The computer simulation process is discussed above.

The SAM process is based on a plastic mannequin rep-resenting the top 10% largest U.S. military recruits in 1989.

Any head smaller than SAM will absorb more MWR (∼97%of the U.S. population) [17]. A liquid with the average adultabsorption properties of the 40 tissues of the head is pouredinto a hole at the top of this head. A robotic arm with anelectric field probe is positioned within the mannequinsuch that the location of the highest electric field is locatedren absorb more microwave radiation than adults: The.1016/j.jmau.2014.06.005

within any one cubic centimeter volume. A cellphone to becertified is clamped to either side of SAM (see Fig. 2). Theelectric fields values are used to calculate the maximumspatial peak Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) for any 1 g

tissue (equivalent to 1 cm3 volume). If the maximum SARis at or below the U.S. exposure limit of 1.6 W/kg the phoneis certified for sale without regard to the ±30% tolerance ofthe SAM certification process [41].

Table 1 compares the capabilities of the two cellphonecertification processes.

As can be seen in Table 1 the SAM process is not capableof determining the MWR absorption as measured by SARin every category except the relative cost and volume reso-lution. Nevertheless, the SAM process has been exclusivelyused to certify every cellphone to date.

4.2. Cellphone manual warnings and 20 cm distance ruleIn spite of an FCC regulation “For purposes of evaluatingcompliance with localized SAR guidelines, portable devicesshould be tested or evaluated based on normal operatingpositions or conditions” [15], this regulation is ignored bythe FCC. Holding a cellphone at a defined distance fromyour body is not “based on normal operating positions”!

For laptop computers, tablets and similar devices, anexposure limit that begins at a distance of 20 cm is not“based on normal operating positions.” Indeed the veryterm “laptop” computer defines the normal operating posi-tion, which when placed on the lap is not 20 cm distant.

4.3. Increasing brain cancer incidence

There are studies showing an increased risk of braincancer from wireless phone use. It is a current problem.

The worst brain cancer, glioblastoma, has increased in theUnited States, and Denmark. Brain cancer incidence hasincreased in Australia in recent years. These results arebased on brain cancer incidence from each country’s cancerregistries.

A United States study examined 3 cancer registries (LosAngeles County, California and SEER 122) [42]. It examinedPlease cite this article in press as: **** LL, et al. Why childconsequences. J Microsc Ultrastruct (2014), rates between years 1992–2006 and reportedthe Average Percent Change (APC) during those years.

“RESULTS: Increased AAIRs [Age-Adjusted Incidence Rates]of frontal (APC +2.4–3.0%, p ≤ 0.001) and temporal (APC2 SEER 12 is cancer registry data maintained by the National CancerInstitute (NCI) using 12 States of the United States.

The **** Cancer Registry issued a press release thatstated, “The number of men who are diagnosed with themost malignant form of brain cancer (glioblastoma), hasalmost doubled over the past ten years” [43].

The Australian study reported, “an overall significantincrease in primary malignant brain tumors was observedover the study period from 2000 to 2008 (APC, 3.9; 95%CI,2.4–5.4), particularly since 2004 (overall AAPC, 3.9; 95% CI,2.6–5.2)” [44].

4.4. Selling toys for infants and toddlers

The iPad, tablets, laptop computers and cellphonesare not children’s toys. Within 20 cm of the device, theexposure limit can be exceeded with iPads and laptop com-puters. Figs. 3–5 are examples of toys for sale (there aremany more similar toys).

.6. Governmental warnings

Many countries have issue warning about children’sellphone use. Some examples are:

urkey 2013:

Governor Aksoy Huseyin, of the Samsun province announced hewould launch a cellphone campaign to bring awareness of theirhazards.

elgium 2013:

The Public Health Minister bans cellphone sales for children under 7years old. Advertisements are also banned during children’s TVprograms.

ustralia 2013:

The federal government created a fact sheet providing citizens waysto reduce exposure from wireless devices. The agency advisesparents to limit children’s exposure to cellphones.

rance, 2010

Laws make advertising cellphones to children under the age of 12illegal.

. Conclusions

Please cite this article in press as: **** LL, et al. Why childconsequences. J Microsc Ultrastruct (2014), risk to children and adolescent from exposure toicrowave radiating devices is considerable. Adults have amaller but very real risk, as well.

Ultrastructure xxx (2014) xxx–xxx 7

(1) Children absorb greater amount of microwave radia-tion (MWR) than adults;

(2) MWR is a Class 2B (possible) carcinogen as is car-bon black, carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, DDT, lead,nickel, phenobarbital, styrene, diesel fuel, and gasoline.

It seems clear that we would not expose children tothese other agents, so why would we expose childrento microwave radiation?

(3) Fetuses are even more vulnerable than children. There-fore pregnant women should avoid exposing their fetusto microwave radiation.

(4) Adolescent girls and women should not place cell-phones in their bras or in hijabs.

(5) Cellphone manual warnings make clear an overexpo-sure problem exists.

(6) Wireless devices are radio transmitters, not toys. ****-ing toys that use them should be banned.

(7) Government warnings have been issued but most of thepublic are unaware of such warnings.

(8) Exposure limits are inadequate and should be revisedsuch that they are adequate.
