Human spit may be transparent, but it contains a host of information that can tell someone’s risk of developing cancer, according to a new study from Tel Aviv University. In an effort to find a link between cell phone usage and cancer risk, researchers found clues in the saliva of cell phone users. Since mobile phones are typically placed on the side of the face, they are close to the salivary gland. By studying the saliva of heavy cell phone users, scientists found higher levels of oxidative stress – a process where the body experiences cumulative damage by free radicals that were imbalanced by antioxidants – which is considered a major risk factor for cancer.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is considering changes to the exposure policy for radiofrequency (RF) radiation in the United States. The agency has requested comments be submitted by September 3, 2013. We need to deliver scientific information to policy makers in a credible and understandable fashion to protect the future health and safety of our children and grandchildren. Grassroots Environmental Education has launched a comments web site to help scientists, medical and public health professionals, and technical and policy experts from around the world to submit comments and peer-reviewed publications to the FCC.
Many people who are EMF injured know that cars are problematic-and especially newer cars due to all the wireless installed. We’ve measured cars for electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) and found in newer cars there are EMFs from different sensors, including air conditioning and braking systems. The back seat of a Prius is a hot bed of batteries- not a safe place for a long drive!
Joe Esposito lives in Tulsa County on the fence line next to the City of Owasso, Oklahoma, which was a pilot for the State of Oklahomaʼs Smart Meter program. Joe called the Public Service Company of Oklahoma (PSO) and told them he did not want a Smart Meter. He came home one day from work and discovered that PSO had installed a Smart Meter on his home without his consent. Joe and his wife watched Dr. Dietrich Klinghardtʼs video “Smart Meter and EMR: The Health Crisis Of Our Time”. After watching the video Joe took Dr. Klinghardtʼs advice and nailed a sheet of lead (30”x30”) between the smart meter and his house and later that night he woke up to discover the two major health problems he had been having were gone. He then built a faraday cage to sleep in which helped him even more.
Based upon recent findings, the British Columbia Centers for Disease Control recommends that males keep cell phones away from the groin area and limit mobile phone use. The report confirms that there is consistent evidence that exposure to testes is associated with reduced sperm count, motility, concentration and altered cell structure.
OKLAHOMA CITY — NewsChannel 4 is learning more about nationwide fears involving smart meters and allegations that they can negatively affect your health. According to a group that tracks complaints against smart meters, so far, three states instituted moratoriums on them. In other states, class action lawsuits were filed and at one time, in California, 47 municipal jurisdictions had demanded a halt to installations of the meters. The following states have either banned smart meters, have pending legislation against them, or have offered customers the opportunity to opt out. Some for health concerns, others over privacy issues: California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas and Vermont.
Wi-fi. It's all around us, quietly and invisibly powering our access to the world's information. But few of us have a sense of what wi-fi actually is, let alone what it would look like if we could see it. Artist Nickolay Lamm, a blogger for MyDeals.com, decided to shed some light on the subject. He created visualizations that imagine the size, shape, and color of wi-fi signals were they visible to the human eye. "I feel that by showing what wi-fi would look like if we could see it, we'd appreciate the technology that we use everyday," Lamm told me in an email. "A lot of us use technology without appreciating the complexity behind making it work."
Quick Take: Along with many others, I have long suggested that the best way to deal with anti-smart-meter zealots is to let them opt-out. Simply come up with a program that allows them to avoid having a smart meter. Then charge them a fee for the extra costs incurred, so that the rest of your customers aren't forced to subsidize their fringe beliefs. I don't know why it takes so many utilities so long to arrive at this obvious and fair answer... - Jesse Berst
Two members of congress (Jerry McNerney, D- Stockton, CA and Matt Cartwright, D- PA) have introduced a congressional bill (HR 2685) that would apparently require all electricity providers (including rural cooperatives and municipal utilities) to join the ‘smart’ grid and install ‘smart’ meters.
