1996: When Cell Phone Safety Guidelines Were Last Updated

 

In a Washington Post op-ed (June 4), “5G conspiracy theories threaten the U.S. recovery,” Thomas Johnson Jr., the Federal Communications Commission’s general counsel, declared: “Conjectures about 5G’s effect on human health are long on panic and short on science.”

The FCC, however, has been “short on science” for more than two decades. Along with the World Health Organization, the FCC abdicated its responsibility to protect the public’s health from hazards associated with exposure to radio frequency, or RF, radiation. As a result, almost 400 international scientists and doctors have called for a moratorium on deployment of 5G, and 150 community groups have tried to block its rollout in the United States. Recently, the Environmental Health Trust and Children’s Health Defense, along with multiple plaintiffs, sued the FCC over its inadequate RF exposure limits and cell phone testing procedures.

The FCC relies on other agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration, for health expertise. However, without a comprehensive review of all peer-reviewed science and a formal risk assessment, the FDA in a letter advised the FCC that “the available scientific evidence to date does not support adverse health effects in humans due to exposures at or under the current limits.” The letter “concluded that no changes to the current standards are warranted at this time.”

In a Senate Commerce Committee hearing, Senator Blumenthal “blasted” the FCC and FDA for “failing to conduct any research into the safety of 5G technology . . . and deferring to industry. . . . We’re kind of flying blind here, as far as health and safety is concerned.”

Last December, the FCC reaffirmed its obsolete RF exposure limits, ignoring critical input from more than 50 scientists, hundreds of scientific studies, and hundreds of people who have suffered illness from RF radiation.

Originally adopted in 1996, these limits were based upon a behavioral change in rats and monkeys exposed to microwave radiation and were designed to protect humans only from short-term heating risks due to RF radiation exposure.

Since 1996, the preponderance of peer-reviewed research—more than 500 studies—has found harmful biologic or health effects from RF radiation exposure at intensities too low to cause significant heating. Thus stringent exposure limits based on biological effects are needed to protect human health.

Citing this body of research, over 240 scientists who have published peer-reviewed research on the biologic and health effects of nonionizing electromagnetic fields, or EMF, signed the International EMF Scientist Appeal, which calls for stronger RF exposure limits. The signatories have published over 2,000 papers and letters on nonionizing EMF in professional journals and arguably constitute the majority of experts in this field.

The appeal proclaims:

Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plant and animal life.

In 2018, a $30 million study conducted by the U.S. National Toxicology Program reported “clear evidence” that two years of exposure to cell phone radiation increased cancer in male rats and damaged DNA in rats and mice of both sexes. The Ramazzini Institute replicated the NTP’s key finding using much weaker cell phone radiation exposure over the rats’ lifespan.

The WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classified RF radiation as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” in 2011. We are seeing increases in head and neck tumors in cancer registries from multiple countries, which may be attributable to the proliferation of wireless device use. These increases are consistent with case-control studies that found increased tumor risk in long-term cell phone users.

Moreover, cancer is not even the most common hazard, because there is substantial scientific evidence that RF radiation causes neurological disorders and reproductive harm.

The volume of peer-reviewed scientific evidence on earlier technologies suggests that exposure to microwaves and millimeter waves used in 5G is likely harmful.

According to Johnson, “if we delay 5G deployment based on irrational fears and unproven theories, it will only hurt the American people.” But can we trust the FDA or FCC’s evaluation of the science? Should we gamble on our health and invest hundreds of billions of dollars deploying 5G, a technology that requires 800,000 new cell antenna sites installed next to our homes and workplaces? Or should we develop RF exposure standards that fully protect humans and the environment and institute a risk management system based upon a formal risk assessment?

Video – Cancer in Your Kitchen-Microwave

We’ve all heard that microwave ovens emit dangerous radiation.  But just how bad is it?  Watch this 1-minute video and find out the shocking truth!  You may even want to remove your pets while the microwave is being used.

Watch the video, click here.

Measure your risk today.  I love the Acousticom2 meter that was used in the video.  It is so easy to use.  Press 1 button and just look at the lights and listen to the sound.

  • Red – Extremely Dangerous
  • Amber – Dangerous
  • Yellow – OK for Daytime hours if you’re not Electrically Hypersensitive
  • Green –  Good for almost everyone – the only acceptable level for sleep

After having watched this brief video, are you ready to walk out of the room when your microwave is in use?  And what about your pets?  Don’t they deserve to exit the area when that microwave oven is in use?

A lady I met just recently told me about her husband. Whenever he would cook anything in a microwave oven he would stand right in from of it. She tried to tell her husband not to stand in front of the microwave oven.  But he would not listen. Unfortunately, she finished by saying her husband now has cancer in his abdominal area.  Every single microwave oven we have measured has generated levels of radiation that are unsafe.  Right in front of the microwave oven, the Radiation level is normally 120 times more than the safe level.

The Acousticom2 is used to measure the Electromagnetic Radiation from a microwave oven.  You can measure your own.  I guarantee you will be a “hit” at any party!  Seriously, this is something you will want to share with your friends and family to minimize their exposure to harmful, cancer-causing radiation.

Other wireless devices also put out high levels of Radiation which you can measure for yourself:

  • Baby Monitors – who would have thought,
  • Cell Phone Towers,
  • Microwave Towers,
  • TV & Radio Towers,
  • Antennas,
  • Consumer Wireless devices,
  • Electric Utility “Smart” Meters,
  • WiFi Routers,
  • Cell Phones,

Microwave Oven Dangers

The Powerwatch organization from the UK has a lot to say about microwave ovens. Powerwatch’s mission is to help secure for the general public as safe an Electromagnetic environment as possible. A curious fact about microwave ovens, Powerwatch noted that after some 20 years of research into their use, the old Soviet Union banned the use of microwave ovens for heating food in 1976. The old Soviet Union decided that the dangers of a microwave oven outweighed the benefit of its speed in cooking food or heating water. But they were allowed again in 1987 under Perestroika by Gorbachev to be more like Western nations.
Specifically the Microwave oven cables and motor give off high Electromagnetic Radiation. Microwave radiation leaks from the seal around the door and through the glass of microwave ovens. The water molecules in the body are agitated to some degree by the microwave radiation. Powerwatch states that eyes are particularly vulnerable, as they contain large amounts of fluid and a lower blood supply to take away any heat. This is important with regard to children whose height and curiosity could lead to them watching the changes induced in microwave cooking from too close a distance. Even when a microwave oven is working correctly, the microwave levels within the kitchen are likely to be significantly higher than those from any nearby cell phone tower. The radiation created by microwave ovens will also travel through interior walls inside the home.

 Microwaves Can Change Your Heart Rate

health, medicine and charity concept - closeup of female hands holding red heart with ecg line

Heart Rates can be affected by Microwave ovens

Microwaves can produce effects on your body instantly due to the 2.4 GHz radiation — the frequency of radiation emitted by microwave ovens. A study conducted by Dr. Magda Havas of Trent University found the levels of radiation emitted by a microwave oven can affect both heart rate and heart rate variability. Dr. Magda Havas suggests that if you experience irregular heart beat or any chest pain and regularly use a microwave oven, it might be best to discontinue use of the microwave oven to see if the microwave oven is affecting you.

Microwave Oven Radiation Leakage 

You would think, with all these tests and regulations, that you’d be safe. However, again according to Powerwatch, a non-profit independent organization with a central role in the microwave radiation debate:
“We don’t really know if the current regulations about leakage are truly safe and recommends ovens be checked at least annually, since microwave oven emissions can change with normal use.”
Dr. Mercola states that it would certainly be wise to avoid letting your children near the microwave when it’s running, and avoid it yourself as much as possible—especially if you’re pregnant. Also, since your eyes are known to be particularly susceptible to microwave radiation (high microwave exposures are known to cause cataracts).

Other Related Issues 

Although the information below is not related directly to Electromagnetic Radiation exposure to humans, I came across an interesting article by Richard Stossel. He stated that in an experiment, conducted at home for a high school science fair, the experiment has verified the dangers of microwaved water to plants and other organic matter. Specifically in the home experiment, filtered water was divided into two parts. One part would be microwaved and allowed to cool before being given to the plant, while the second part would be heated on a conventional stove and given to an identical plant. Results were observed over a nine day period. By the third day it was already clear that the plant given the microwaved water was not faring as well as its counterpart.
By the ninth day the microwaved plant was virtually nonexistent in its pot, having literally shrunk in size to just a few inches above the soil. The second plant was growing beautifully.

Blog 11-7-2015 Mircrowave Oven Plants 1

As this experiment clearly shows, microwaving your food, even if you are just reheating your tea, is definitely not a good idea. Our microwaved plant would agree if it could talk.
Additionally, Powerwatch along this same line, noted that the anthroposophist, A. Bohmert, reported the following effect that microwave heating had on water, a common component of all food products. Water samples were heated, some in a microwave oven and others conventionally, and then left to cool before use. These water samples were used to bring grain to germination. The grain in contact with microwaved water was the only one that did not germinate.

In Conclusion

1 – Since radiation from microwave ovens can pass through walls and if microwave ovens are placed against an adjacent wall, those on the other side will be exposed to high levels of radiation.
2 – Microwave oven emissions can change with normal use; so microwave ovens should be checked regularly, preferably at least annually, to pick up any microwave radiation leakage from the seals.
3 – All of the microwave ovens I have measured have unsafe Electromagnetic Radiation levels

•  always extending into one room,
•  most often into two rooms away and
•  quite often extending into three rooms away.

To measure these levels I would recommend a great meter to use, it is one of my favorites – the Acousticom 2 – WiFi / Wireless / RF meter.

acousticom2This meter is very simple to use, about the size of a deck of cards, with Green, Amber, Yellow, and Red LED lights – indicating increasingly harmful levels of WiFi / Wireless / RF radiation from microwave ovens. https://stopdirtyelectricity.com/wirelessrf/

This meter will also work on any device that is generating WiFi / Wireless / RF radiation in your home – such as a Smart TV, Baby Monitors, Cordless Phones, WiFi Routers, etc. It will also pick-up sources outside your home that are bleeding into your environment like cell towers, wireless routers from neighbors, Smart electrical meters – just to name a few. Check out this link for even more sources of WiFi / Wireless / RF radiation.

I have also produced a series of videos that will guide you through every room and each device in your home. The videos also covers harmful WiFI / Wireless devices outside of your home – how to measure them and what to do if high levels of radiation exist. https://stopdirtyelectricity.net/package-3-details-2/

Welcome to Stop Dirty Electricity

Welcome to Stop Dirty Electricity

Bill CadwalladerHey, this is Bill Cadwallader with StopDirtyElectricity.com.

I have many things to chat with you about Electromagnetic Radiation.

You say, what is Electromagnetic Radiation?

This harmful radiation is caused by our modern day lifestyle and the myriad of electronics that surround us today.

We will be discussing the sources of this radiation and how you, in most cases, can reduce over 90% of this radiation by taking some simple, easy-to-do steps to protect your home, family, kids, environment and yes, even your pets – please don’t forget your pets.

Before I forget, if you have not received my free report on

10 Things You can do NOW to Minimize Radiation Exposure in your HOME

Please do that now – it’s on the Home Page right below the Welcome Video:

So stay tuned.   If you find it helpful, please share this with your friends.

The first radiation is Electric.

110_F_53714148_DeHCTxTYusZbvFt0y59uKVLeMKXvXpVa

This Electric Radiation is now present in almost all homes.  A major source of Electric Radiation is the wiring in your walls and any visible wires.We can reduce the effect of this radiation with a few, easy steps.

Recently we did an home audit for a couple where the man was very skeptical.

When I followed up with the wife a few days later, she had to admit, she had the best night’s sleep – in as long as she could remember! The next time I spoke with her, her husband – you remember the skeptic – had to admit, he couldn’t remember when he had slept so well.

Boy, am I happy to hear this common result again, and again.

Another type is Magnetic Radiation.

Magnetic Radiation is produced any time electricity is flowing through a wire.

Many articles have been written about Magnetic Radiation and the effects are normally reduced just by moving 2 to 6 feet away.

A third type of radiation is Wireless / WiFi / RF radiation. This is caused by many modern electronics like cell phones, tablets, baby monitors, cell towers, etc.

  • deals with quick and easy ways to reduce your exposure to Wireless / WiFi / RF radiation.

Finally, the 4th type of Electromagnetic Radiation is termed Dirty Electricity.

110_F_9699481_JxTADtySTmkBNiWScMH3WTsDk5iTOQLX

It is sad, but La Quinta Middle School had off-the-chart high Dirty Electricity levels.  Unfortunately, 16 teachers had 18 cancers at the school and several have died.

I know one teacher personally, she said the very day she started, she found out that one teacher had died of cancer and 2 others had cancer. After teaching there for 3 years, she realized nothing was going to be done and she moved on to a different school.

And if that is not bad enough, at last count, we know up to 37 students attending that school who developed cancer starting in their 20’s – with one student at age 15.

We will be discussing all of these radiations and how to get rid of them on this site.
