“We Are The Evidence” Testimony to the FCC Disability Committee on Wireless Radiation Harms

[ September 22, Dafna Tachover (which for years has fought for the rights of EHS) held a public speech at the Advisory Committee meeting on the FCC (Federal Communications Commission Disabilities (Disability Advisory Committee Meeting)) in order to plead our cause.
Among the participants at the meeting there were many companies in the wireless and technology, and disability organizations.

The above Committee has been established to make recommendations to the Commission on a range of issues relating to disability within the Commission’s competence, and to facilitate the participation of disabled persons in proceedings before the Commission.
Dafna electro and has not been easy for her to be in that environment polluted. We should all appreciate his commitment and his efforts. 

Below you can find the video of his speech.

Dafna has recently created “We Are The Evidence” (WATE), an advocacy group that aims to represent adults and children who have been damaged by radiation of wireless technology.
WATE want to expose this epidemic to the public, to make the voice of injured parties and defend their rights through education, union and legal process. The WATE website was launched although it is not yet finished, and is accessible at the following link:  WATE website .
If you are sick because of radiation of wireless technology, you have the EHS or cancer, please fill out the form dedicated to you, leaving your testimony.
Unfortunately, the module is in English and also the filling must be done in English, so you need a little ‘commitment.
The module can be reached at the following link:  “I Am The Evidence” form . ]

7 ways your WiFi could be causing you harm

[ Article comes from Nigeria, reflecting the fact that awareness of the dangers of WiFi, cellular, and wireless in general, is widespread on a global level.

7 ways that Wireless can cause damage: insomnia, sperm damage, effects on cell growth, impaired development of children, reduced brain activity in females, effects on fertility, cardiac stress. ]

wifi-1


Many are on edge Because They can not imagine a world without the internet. But every good thing has it’s bad side and it’s better to educated yourself to be safe.

Insomnia

When exposed to electromagnetic radiation, you will have more difficulty falling asleep. When I know you can not sleep You Should maybe just turn off your phone.

Neutralizes sperm

Wireless radiation Reduces sperm movement and your DNA fragments.

Affects cell growth

Sleeping with your phone next to your head can affect your ability to concentrate.

Experiment: One set of plants was grown in a room free of wireless radiation; the other group grew next to two routers That released the same amount of radiation as a cell phone.

Result: The plants closest to the radiation did not grow.

Damage to child development

This radiation has the ability to alter and to stunt growth of body tissue. Young children are more Likely to be affected during Their developmental stages.

Reduces brain activity in females

Experiment: A group of 30 healthy volunteers, 15 men and 15 women, were given a simple memory test. First, the entire group was tested without any exposure to Wi-Fi radiation and the results were fine.

Then, they were exposed to 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi from a wireless access point for about 45 minutes.

Result: During That portion of the testing, brain activity was measured and the women had a noticeable change in brain activity and energy levels.

Effects on fertility 

Results of experiments on animals show some That specific wireless frequencies can prevent egg implantation. According to the Global Healing Center, during the study, mice exposed 2 hours a day for 45 days had Significantly Increased oxidative stress levels.

Cardiac stress

Your heart Reacts When surrounded by wireless networks including 3G and LTE phones. Your heart rate Increases as if you are under stress. You may not have noticed this Because you were not aware of the dangers.

All this Seems scary but the use of your wireless networks can be regulated.

Every time you’re not using your wireless device you can put it away. You do not necessarily have to turn it off, but you Ensure your off Mobile data switch and any wireless routers in the house.

It is more important to do so before you sleep and avoid sleeping with your phone under your pillow.

Effects Of Electromagnetic Radiation On Mitochondria

[ A crucial aspect of exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation in High Frequency (Radio Frequency and Microwave) used in wireless technology is mitochondrial damage that goes with it, and that can not be repaired (!).
All this leads to serious consequences for the organism, which malfunzionerà permanently (!).

Let us remember that every day adults but also children are exposed to critical levels of Electromagnetic Pollution in High Frequency and this is jeopardizing the future of everyone, but especially that of children. Who will pay for all these subjects always tired and unable to work / think because of the energy deficit by mitochondrial damage?

The following article exposes clearly the causes of mitochondrial damage and we have translated for you so you can read it more easily.

Wireless communications have Increased Significantly in modern times and Regarding Their safety concerns have grown as well. Wireless communications utilize high frequency radiation – radio frequencies and microwaves. Man-made electromagnetic radiation exerts Numerous biological effects That begin at the molecular level and eventually lead to cellular, tissue and organ dysfunction. Electromagnetic radiation exerts its effects at the sub-cellular level by Altering molecular rotation and vibration, Increasing the collisions between molecules and breaking chemical bonds Which ultimately affect structure and function (1). This has direct effects on energy production in the cell. Mitochondria are the organelles responsible for cellular energy production and Numerous other cell functions and they are adversely affected by electromagnetic radiation in many inter-related ways.

Electromagnetic radiation causes structural damage to mitochondria. Exposure to radiation causes swelling and cavitation in mitochondria as well as broken, disorganized and scattered mitochondrial cristae or folds (1, 3). The Explained Increases damage with prolonged exposure time even though the dose of radiation was low, Therefore, long-term, low-dose exposure leads to significant damage. After three hours of microwave radiation, visible swelling of mitochondria Increased and after twenty four hours, there was mitochondrial degeneration (1). Damage Caused by radiation is cumulative. Radiation Also damages the mitochondrial membranes Which causes a decrease in mitochondrial potential membrane (1), which is responsible for the proton motive force and energy production in mitochondria, Which eventually leads to apoptosis (1, 4) or cell death, since apoptosis is regulated by mitochondria.

Calcium homeostasis is impaired by electromagnetic radiation. Mitochondrial are responsible for regulating calcium homeostasis Within the cell. Normally, extracellular calcium is greater than most intracellular calcium and intracellular calcium is stored in the mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum. Microwave radiation causes a significant INCREASE in cytoplasmic calcium and this causes excess activation of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (1), a nonspecific pore in the mitochondrial membrane, Which leads to Increased permeability membranes, disrupting metabolic gradients between mitochondria and the cytosol. This then leads to the uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation (1), meaning oxidative phosphorylation is no longer yoked to the respiratory chain to synthesize ATP, so energy production ceases. Remaining ATP made by unaffected mitochondria Also gets depleted and cell death ensues. Intracellular calcium Increases Also leads to swelling of mitochondria and if great, results in rupturing of mitochondria.

Oxidative stress and cellular signaling is disturbed Caused by electromagnetic radiation. Oxidative stress OCCURS When there is an imbalance between free radical production and anti-oxidant defense mechanisms. There is a significant INCREASE in reactive oxygen species, decreases in antioxidant enzymes glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase and markers of lipid peroxidation and protein oxidation INCREASE (1) When mitochondria are exposed to radiation. Radiation inhibits the mitochondrial respiratory chain by prolonging the lifespan of free radicals and impairing the anti-oxidant defense system (2). Enzyme That functions and signaling pathways are crucial to energy generation are disturbed by electromagnetic radiation. As Mentioned above, calcium homeostasis is impaired and calcium is an important signaling molecule. The activity of cytochrome c oxidase, a critical enzyme in energy metabolism Which transports electrons to oxygen to produce water and ATP, is suppressed (1). Oxidative stress and impaired signaling Also affect mitochondrial gene expression.

Electromagnetic radiation causes damages mitochondrial genes and gene mutations. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) are more susceptible to external stimuli than nuclear DNA (1) and they lack the repair mechanisms of nuclear DNA (2). Radiation induces mtDNA strand breaks and the excess reactive oxygen species production Also Caused by radiation exposure causes mtDNA mutations (1, 2). Exposure to radiation causes a decline in mtDNA copy number and mtRNA transcripts (2) Which, When combined with mitochondrial mutations, Further adds burden to the cell by way of More defective mitochondrial genes being passed onto future mitochondria. Mitochondrial gene mutations in turn amplify oxidative stress by deficient critical encoding proteins required for the respiratory chain (2). A vicious cycle is created by exposure to radiation whereby mitochondria are overwhelmed and cell death occurs.

Increases Apoptosis after exposure to electromagnetic radiation (4). Exposure to radiation triggers a series of inter-related events – structural damage, impaired signaling, oxidative stress and gene mutations – that culminates in cell death. The cumulative damage causes an imbalance of pro-apoptotic and anti-apoptotic proteins Which leads to a decrease in the mitochondrial potential membrane (4) and the release of cytochrome c Which activates caspase-signaling pathways That leads to apoptotic cell death (1, 4 ). Although apoptosis may be beneficial in removing damaged cells, When it is excessive, it can be problematic Because it can eventually lead to systemic dysfunction in the organism.

Excessive apoptosis Caused by man-made electromagnetic radiation is problematic for the nervous system. The nervous system is very susceptible to the effects of radiation. The brain is more sensitive to electromagnetic radiation than other organs Because it has a very high metabolic rate and a great demand for oxygen, making it very vulnerable to energy metabolism disorders (1). Numerous pathological changes can occur in the brain as a Consequence of excessive radiation exposure such as structural damage, disruption neurotransmitter (1, 3), and altered electrical activity Increased permeability of the blood-brain barrier (2, 4). How one is severely affected depends on the frequency, duration and intensity of the radiation exposure (1, 3). Everyone is or will be, in some way, negatively affected by man-made electromagnetic radiation. Because of the ever Increasing amount of antennas and towers being installed by telecommunications companies, radio frequency and microwave radiation is nearly impossible to avoid nowadays and it poses a serious threat to public health. It will only get worse Unless action is taken to remove and reduce and not simply avoid the sources of man-made radiation.

Wireless communications have increased significantly in modern times and concerns about their safety have grown by consensus. Wireless communications using radiation High Frequency – Radio Frequency and Microwave. Artificial Electromagnetic Radiation exert many biological effects that begin at the molecular level and eventually leading to cell dysfunction, tissue and organ. The Electromagnetic Radiation exert their effects at the sub-cellular level by altering the molecular rotation and vibration, increasing the collisions between the molecules and breaking chemical bonds, which eventually affect the structure and function (1). This has direct effects on energy production in the cell. Mitochondria are organelles responsible for cellular energy production and many other functions of cells, and are adversely affected by Electromagnetic Radiation in many ways interlinked.

The Electromagnetic Radiation cause structural damage to the mitochondria. Exposure to radiation causes swelling and cavitation in the mitochondria, as well as folds or ridges mitochondrial routes, disorganized and scattered (1, 3). The damage increases with longer exposure times even if the radiation dose was low, so the low-dose exposure leads to significant damage in the long term. After three hours of Microwave Radiation in the visible swelling of mitochondria it was increased, and twenty-four hours there was mitochondrial degeneration (1). The damage caused by radiation are cumulative. The radiation also damages the mitochondrial membrane, which causes a decrease in the mitochondrial membrane potential (1), which is responsible for the proton motive force and the production of energy in the mitochondria, and this ends up causing apoptosis (1, 4) or cell death, since apoptosis is regulated by mitochondria.

Calcium homeostasis is compromised by Electromagnetic Radiation. Mitochondria are responsible for the homeostasis of calcium into the cell. Normally, the extracellular calcium is greater than the intracellular and most of intracellular calcium is stored in mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum. Microwave radiation, causing a significant increase in cytoplasmic calcium and this causes an excess of activation of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (1), a non-specific pore in the mitochondrial membrane, which leads to an increase in the permeability of the membrane, disrupting the gradients metabolic between mitochondria and cytosol. This then leads to the uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation (1), which means that the oxidative phosphorylation is no longer yoked to the respiratory chain to synthesize ATP, so the energy production ceases. The ATP that is synthesized from non-affected mitochondria, also ends up being reduced and consequent cell death. The increase in intracellular calcium also leads him to swelling of mitochondria and, if high, results in failure of the mitochondria.

Oxidative stress and disturbed cellular signals are caused by Electromagnetic Radiation. Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance between the production of free radicals and antioxidant defense mechanisms. There is a significant increase in reactive oxygen species, decrease of antioxidant enzymes glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase, and increased levels of lipid peroxidation markers and protein oxidation (1) when the mitochondria are exposed to radiation. The Radiation inhibit mitochondrial respiratory chain extending the life of free radicals and influences the antioxidant defense system (2). The enzyme functions and critical signaling pathways for energy production are disturbed by Electromagnetic Radiation. As mentioned earlier, the calcium homeostasis is compromised, and the calcium is an important signaling molecule. The activity of cytochrome c oxidase, a critical enzyme in energy metabolism that carries oxygen to produce water and electrons ATP, is suppressed (1). Oxidative stress and altered signals also affect the expression of mitochondrial genes.

The Electromagnetic Radiation damages the mitochondrial genes and cause genetic mutations. The mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is more sensitive to external stimuli of nuclear DNA (1) and lacks the typical repair mechanisms of nuclear DNA (2). The Radiation induce breakages in the filaments of the mtDNA and excess production of reactive oxygen species caused by exposure to radiation also causes mtDNA mutations (1, 2). Exposure to radiation causes a decline in the number of mtDNA copies and transcripts of mtRNA (2), which, when combined with mitochondrial mutations, adds an additional burden to the cell through the defective mitochondrial genes are passed to future mitochondria . Mutations of mitochondrial genes, in turn, amplify the oxidative stress by means of the encoding of defective proteins required critical to the respiratory chain (2). From exposure to radiation it has created a vicious circle in which mitochondria are overwhelmed and cell death occurs.

Apoptosis increases after exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation (4). Exposure to radiation triggers a series of events linked together – structural damage, altered signaling, oxidative stress and gene mutations – culminating in cell death. The cumulative damage causes an imbalance of pro-apoptotic proteins and anti-apoptotic which leads to a decrease in the mitochondrial membrane potential (4) and the release of cytochrome c, which activates signaling pathways of caspase, which lead to cell death for apoptosis (1, 4). Although apoptosis may be useful in removing damaged cells, when it is excessive, it can be problematic as it can ultimately lead to systemic dysfunction of the organism.

Excessive apoptosis caused by artificial Electromagnetic radiation is problematic for the nervous system. The nervous system is very sensitive to the effects of radiation. The brain is more sensitive to Electromagnetic radiation than any other organ because it has a very high metabolic rate and a high demand for oxygen, making it very vulnerable to energy metabolism disorders (1). Numerous pathological changes can occur in the brain as a result of excessive exposure to radiation such as structural damage, neurotransmitter disturbances (1, 3), alteration of the electrical activity and increased permeability of the blood-brain barrier (2, 4). As strictly a subject is affected depends on the frequency, duration and intensity of exposure to radiation (1, 3). Everyone is or will be, in any way, adversely affected by the artificial Electromagnetic Radiation. Due to the ever increasing amount of antennas and mobile phone base stations installed by the telecommunications companies, Radio frequencies and microwave radiations it is almost impossible to avoid these days and represent a serious threat to public health. Things will only get worse if nothing is done to eliminate and reduce, and not simply to avoid the artificial radiation sources.

“NO SAFE PLACE shattered lives, healthcare Set to crash – you can not fix this fast enough” – A letter from Olga Sheean to Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson on Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS – Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity)

[ NO SAFE PLACE YOU LIVE …

Olga Sheean, a former employee of the World Health Organization in Geneva now residing in Vancouver, BC, wrote a letter extraordinarily passionate and articulate Gregor Robertson, Mayor of Vancouver, regarding Hypersensitivity Electromagnetic (EHS) and the proliferation dangers WiFi.

Also thanks to his past, Olga Sheean is one of the most valuable activists in the field of EHS. E ‘was even able to obtain acceptance for Orca Airways that mobile phones are switched off when the Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity ill traveling on airplanes of that company.

The letter in question is a comprehensive document, which outlines the harmful effects of wireless devices and infrastructure being launched and promoted by the City of Vancouver. It ‘s really very thorough and worth reading.

The main themes of the document are as follows:

  • Ignored, excluded and disabled – citizens forced to flee
  • Evidence of adverse effects: quick facts
  • Scientific data against political pressure and misinformation
  • Physical Effects of Electromagnetic Radiation
  • Main symptoms of EHS
  • Important landmarks on the boundary line of Electromagnetic Fields
  • Human rights and human misdeeds
  • Questions that you and the government must answer
  • A taste of what’s to come: the real cost of the Electromagnetic Radiation
  • Scientists call for more protective measures, given the growing evidence of the risks of EMF.

We would like to mention a couple of important views stated in the letter.

Referring to what the recent history should teach us, the author says:

“Once upon a time …
… The Earth was flat. The smoking was good for you. Thalidomide was fabulous in resolving morning sickness. Asbestos allowed excellent insulation. Nuclear power was the way to go. The GM wheat crops were a godsend for farmers around the world. And hydrogenated oils were an affordable option in terms of cost-benefit. Now we have WiFi and mobile networks, which connect us with everyone, everywhere, every second of every day … and create in our living environment a proliferation of pervasive radiation, virtually inevitable, unprecedented, not checked, unchecked and growing rapidly. But do not worry; the mayor of Vancouver says it’s safe! “

Referring to the terrible living conditions of the EHS sufferers, who are denied their basic human rights, he says:

“Although being exposed to harmful radiation without his consent and beyond one’s control is definitely a violation of human rights, it is difficult to determine exactly how many of those rights are violated. There is the right to equal opportunities, the right to livelihood, the right to access all the services and amenities available to citizens who do not have the EHS, the right to health, the right to live in a safe environment , the right to choose to be exposed to harmful radiation and perhaps even the right to exist, considering major. It could also be considered a denial of our own humanity, given our natural reaction to radiation and the inevitable tipping point intolerance of the body to ever increasing levels. We all have points of no return of intolleranza- … “

An urgent message for all humanity:

electromagnetic radiation is damaging our babies, brains, bodies and planet

The Following letter (sent to the Mayor of Vancouver, Gregor Robertson, and the Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, on 15 June 2016) has generated an overwhelming response from people all over the world . Many of them have electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), but some of them are discovering this information for the first time and are alarmed by how much it Has Been distorted, downplayed and denied by Those Elected to protect our well-being. They Have Their Own shared personal stories and some of them have also written to Robertson, as well as Their Own Elected officials, expressing Their concerns and calling for this issue to be addressed urgently.

The letter has gone viral, reaching Thousands of people. It Has Been shared on social media, distributed on various networks, sent out in a newsletter and its content re-purposed for other cities.

The information contained in this document applies to list most developed countries, since Wi-Fi, cell phones and cordless phones are everywhere, saturating our environment with rapidly rising levels of radiation that’s Affecting More and More people every day. I encourage you to share it as widely as you can, even if you are not personally (or knowingly) affected.

The More people I speak to about this, The More I (and they) realize That we’re all affected in some way-some so severely That they can no longer function normally. I receive letters every day from Those Who are desperate for a solution and a safe place to live. I hear horror stories-a teenager committing suicide Because She’s been forced to sit beside a Wi-Fi router at school, even though it makes her seriously ill; adults who have taken Their Own lives Because there is nowhere for them to lead a normal life; and a 10-year-old boy who can no longer go to school as the Wi-Fi causes blinding headaches and makes him vomit. (For a list of symptoms of electromagnetic intolerance, see page 13.)

As much as 50% of the population in many developed countries will be affected by electromagnetic radiation by 2017.

The questions on pages 20 & 21 raise some key issues That politicians, decision-makers and Internet service-providers have an obligation to answer-but will be unable to, since the proliferation of electromagnetic radiation is now so vast and is escalating so rapidly That there is no way to measure, monitor or Contain it.

As of 3 July 2016, I had not yet received a reply from Robertson or Trudeau, but I will be Following up with them personally, sharing the many stories and messages I’ve received and alerting them to the growing public awareness of what’s really going on. Change will come as a result of your involvement. There is a tipping point for everything-your tolerance for the rising radiation, as well as the pressure we can collectively bring to bear on Those tasked to protect our health, safety, human rights and natural environment.

We’re all in this together.

The effects of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation on sperm function.

[ Important review conducted by Australian researchers, which evaluates the effects of radio frequencies emitted by mobile phones on male fertility .

A fundamental obstacle to the current debate regarding the damage from Non-Ionizing Radiation on biological systems, and specifically the reproductive system, is that there is no clear mechanism by which such radiation would affect them. Therefore, those researchers analyzed the documented effects of Electromagnetic Radiation in RadioFrequency on the male reproductive system and considered all public comments that could provide insights into a possible mechanism.

Of 27 analyzed studies, as many as 21 (!) Have clearly showed a correlation between exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation in RadioFrequency and  negative effects on spermatozoa , resulting in damage to the male reproductive system.

Among the above 21 studies, 11 of the 15 who have investigated the sperm motility have highlighted a significant reduction; all of the 7 who have measured the production of Reactive Oxygen Species have documented elevated levels; 4 of 5 who have tested DNA damage have highlighted the presence.
In addition, all 6 studies that have investigated the reduction in the levels of antioxidants have shown this phenomenon.

In light of all this, it was hypothesized a cell damage mechanism in two phases in which the Electromagnetic Radiation in RadioFrequency, impacted cellular systems, would lead to a  mitochondrial dysfunction (NB The same highlighted in other brain level studies, with consequent damage neuronal) followed by a high production of ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species).

Perhaps a serious campaign by the Ministry of Health on the issue of fertility (see Fertility Day), should keep in mind this fundamental etiological factor infertility!

ABSTRACT

Mobile phone usage has become an integral part of our lives. However, the effects of the electromagnetic radiofrequency radiation (RF-EMR) emitted by devices These Specifically on biological systems and the reproductive systems are currently under active debate. A fundamental hindrance to the current debate Is that there is no clear mechanism of how such non-ionizing radiation influences biological systems. Therefore, we explored the documented impacts of RF-EMR on the male reproductive system and any common observations Considered That could Provide insights on a potential mechanism. Among a total of 27 studies investigating the effects of RF-EMR on the male reproductive system, adverse Consequences of exposure were reported in 21. Within These 21 studies, 11 of the 15 investigated That sperm motility reported significant declines, 7 of 7 That measured the production of reactive oxygen species documented elevated levels of 4 and 5 studies That probed for DNA damage highlighted Increased damage, two to RF-EMR exposure. Associated with this, RF-EMR treatment reduced antioxidant levels in 6 of 6 studies Studied That this phenomenon, while Consequences of RF-EMR were successfully ameliorated with the supplementation of antioxidants in all 3 studies That Carried Out These experiments. In light of this, we envisage a two-step mechanism whereby RF-EMR is able to induce mitochondrial dysfunction leading to elevated ROS production. A continued focus on research Which AIMS to shed light on the biological effects of RF-EMR will allow us to test and assess this proposed mechanism in a variety of cell types.

Why men Should NEVER put in Their Their phone pocket: Study shows how prolonged exposure to radiation steadily destroys sperm

[ RADIO FREQUENCY AND DAMAGES TO SPERM: WHY ‘THE MEN SHOULD NOT HOLD THE PHONE IN POCKET.

A recent review of 21 studies (soon we will publish on our website) has found a link between cellular emissions and sperm count.
It ‘result that prolonged exposure to radiation destroys the sperm permanently.

Public health seems reluctant to say that mobile phones definitely harm sperm – there is currently no way to prove exactly how radiation and sperm count are linked – but experts warn that this revision provides pretty convincing evidence that men they should keep their phones in their pockets!

We can not and we should not expect to know in detail the pathogenesis of the damage from Microwave to start taking precautions, because it may be too late!

For this reason, we would like to say that the same thing should apply to women, which should not keep wireless devices near their gonads and especially near their belly when they are pregnant.

The effects of the damage, which unfortunately are happening inexorably every day, the bill will not be seen, but in a few years high. ]

9 September 2016 – “www.dailymail.co.uk” by MIA DE GRAAF FOR DAILYMAIL.COM

  • New review of 21 studies found links between phones and sperm count
  • Public health are hesitant to say phones definitely harm sperm – there is currently no way to test exactly how radiation and sperm count are tied
  • But experts warn this review Provides compelling enough evidence That Men Should not Keep Their cell phones in Their pockets 

Despite all the fears about cell phones and radiation, most of us still put our phones in our pockets jean.

It’s easy, convenient, and any bad effects are impossible to see.

But a new study warns there is conclusive evidence That Men in Particular need to find another storage spot.

A systemic review of 21 research papers on radiation shows phones Placed close to a man’s genitals for a prolonged period of time steadily drives down sperm count.

Danger: A review of years of evidence shows men are putting Themselves at risk by storing Their phones in Their front pockets
Danger: A review of years of evidence shows men are putting Themselves at risk by storing Their phones in Their front pockets

And among the studies, many suggest surviving sperm could be DMA-damaged.

The biological phenomenon is currently under fierce debate since scientists have no way to explain how non-ionizing radiation influences the body.

Without that link, many public health investigators are hesitant to say definitively That cell phones harm sperm.

However, a new review by a team at Australia’s University of Newcastle has collated years of evidence in an attempt to emphasize Both the trend and to identify potential causes.

And since 14 per cent of the world struggle to conceive – with male infertility Involved 40 per cent of the time – they warn a small detail such as where one stores Their phone could be crucial.

‘While this subject remains a topic of active debate, this review has Considered the growing body of evidence suggesting a possible role for RF-EMR [electromagnetic radiofrequency radiation] induced damage of the male germ line,’ the authors write.

‘In a Majority of studies, this damage Has Been caratterizzata by loss of sperm motility and viability as well as the induction of ROS generation and DNA damage.’

The authors reviewed 27 studies. Twenty-one of them Showed a causal link between cell phone radiation and sperm damage.

Ten studies were Examined including 1,492 human sperm samples.

Exposure to mobile phones was found to be associated with a significant eight per cent reduction in sperm motility and nine per cent reduction in sperm viability.

The data are hardly surprising, the authors say, given the 'unique vulnerability of the highly specialized sperm cell'
The data are hardly surprising, the authors say, given the ‘unique vulnerability of the highly specialized sperm cell’

The effects on sperm concentration were more equivocal.

The results were consistent across experimental laboratory correlational studies and observational studies.

The data are hardly surprising, the authors say, given the ‘unique vulnerability of the highly specialized sperm cell’.

But by continuing to store phones in pockets, the male population is ignoring ‘the future health That burden may be created if conception proceeds with defective DNA-damaged spermatozoa’.

Dr. Joel Moskowitz, of UC Berkeley’s public health school, Explained to Daily Mail Online That this review is a pivotal step towards Broader global understanding about the dangers of our phones.

In 2011, the World Health Organization classified cell phone radiation as a possible carcinogen 2B.

It was the first major recognition That cell phones could have a detrimental effect on our bodies.

However, while studies have shown a correlation between sperm count depletion and cell phone radiation, there is a lack of concrete research and findings into the link between the two.

Regardless, Dr. Moskowitz warned, the University of Newcastle reviews is clear evidence that ‘men Should not store near Their cellphones Their genitals’.

‘In this line of research more intense cellphone radiation leads to more sperm damage,’ he added.

Spain: High Court of Madrid Ruling Recognizes “electrosensitivity” as Grounds for Total Permanent Disability

[ Other important article on the recent Spanish ruling that recognized a total and permanent disability to a person with EHS. ]

UPDATE 29 August 2016: A n self-translation of the legal decision in the High Court of Madrid, Which found in favor of an EHS sufferer, an ex-employee at Ericsson, is included in a post published on Dave Ashton’s blog, “Being Electrosensitive “:
” Spain – EHS Legally Recognized “ . A statement considers for first time “electrosensitivity” as grounds for total permanent disability by Patricia Esteban, noticias.juridicas.com ,

3 August 2016
[Note: Google translation – we corrected the grammar only in the sub-headings and where very evident. We are seeking a person fluent in Spanish and to Inglese Provided for better translation of this article.] A statement considers the first “electrosensitivity” as grounds for total permanent disabilityA recent ruling by the High Court of Madrid, No. 588/2016 dated 6 July 2016 (rapporteur Mr. Miguel Moreiras Cabellero) has Recognized for the first time a situation of total permanent disability for the exercise of the profession of a telecommunications engineer suffering from a rare syndrome, “electrosensitivity syndrome (EHS)”, Which Prevents him from working in environments with electromagnetic fields. It does not Recognize, However, an absolute permanent disability.

This little known syndrome causes a number of symptoms (headaches, sleep disorders or muscle aches, even aggressive), now Recognized for justice as incapacitating, Whose origin is exposure to electromagnetic fields.The engineer suffering from this syndrome had appealed the sentence in supplication Instance Labor Court No 11 of Madrid, Which Dismissed Acquitted His petition and the National Institute of Social Security (INSS), which had denied the economic benefits.Now the Supreme Court of Madrid has given reason: his illness Prevents him from working as an engineer in telecommunications, but believes’s That he can work in environments That do not present electromagnetic pollution. But, we wonder, what office currently has no wifi?He was denied a disability benefitThe appellant, who worked in a technology known multinational, had initiated a sick leave for temporary disability two to common illnesses, and subsequently records of permanent disability.An initial medical reported that “it is not possible to Establish permanent functional limitations electrosensitivity syndrome” and proposed no qualification of the worker as permanently disabled by not presenting anatomical or functional reductions That reduce or remove His working capacity.In view of These reports, the INSS issued a resolution dated June 6, 2014, by Which it remembered the actor deny disability benefits, not reach the injuries Suffered by a sufficient degree of reduced working capacity, for constituting a permanent disability.

The Social Court No 11 of Madrid Dismissed the claim, considering That His case could not be Considered as “absolute permanent disability” requested by the actor.

The key to the favorable judgment: a report of Public Health

The applicant had in his favor with an expert report Hospital of Guadalajara, in cui the patient’s symptoms were described to work “in the presence of this exposure to electromagnetic fields”. Symptoms such as headache, tinnitus, insomnia and other disorders such as mood changes, nervousness, irritability or aggression, etc., that “improved by moving away from Their exposure.”

Reducing exposure to electromagnetic pollution 

The court finds that “total permanent disability of the claimant For His usual profession of Telecommunications Engineer Because of chemical sensitivity That have or electromagnetic hypersensitivity the Spanish Ministry of Health has called in its version of the International Classification syndrome is reasonably accredited ICD-9-CM Within the group of non-disease-specific allergies. ”

As stated in the Contested judgment, the appellant is required by His profession to work in sensitive environments, being in constant daily contact with computers in an environment where there are electromagnetic fields, radio frequency wireless and Mobile connections.

Talking Caused by the mobile tinnitus  

This syndrome, According clarifies the court in its judgment, is an allergy That causes for Those Who Suffer loss induced tolerance, for most recurrent Outbreaks, “the radio pollution, cordless phones, Mobile phone antennas, WIFI, Requiring who affects to minimize Their exposure in the home and work environments and avoid places with electromagnetic pollution “.

Unable to work as ‘teleco’

Therefore, the court finds That he is unable to work at his workplace (a multinational dedicated to providing telecommunications equipment and solutions).

Proved circumstances, lead, continued the judge, “a reasonable decision to declare the applicant in a situation of total permanent disability For His usual profession of Telecommunications Engineer derived from common illness Entitled to receive the Corresponding financial benefits under the provisions Article 137.4 of the General Social Security Law. ”

“White zones”

The court, However, considers That it can not appreciate a complete inability, Because Although the plaintiff is unable to work in environments with electromagnetic pollution, this situation does not occur in all sorts of places, so he can work in so-called unpolluted ” white zones “.

Furthermore, with regard to multiple chemical sensitivity That Also suffers syndrome, as discussed in the Background of Fourth Law of the judgment of the Court, “it is not possible to Establish permanent sequelae,” and this lack of permanent limitations Prevents estimate its claim to It is declared in absolute permanent disability Pursuant to the provisions of article 136.1 of the General Social Security Law.

Pioneer judgment

Recognition of little known syndromes as a cause of work disability has in recent years battle in court. Conditions That causes a high impact on people who have it, and do not Seem to receive the public attention it requires.

The case of telecommunications engineer at the High Court of Madrid has Recognized incapacity for suffering electrosensitivity is relevant to be the first time That this condition is Considered as the main causes of disability.

Previously, courts had Recognized, but associated with other syndromes (chronic fatigue, environmental sensitivity ..). Thus, for example, Case 213/2016 the Supreme Court of Castilla y Leon dated April 6, 2016 or judgment of the Supreme Court 4675/2014 Catalonia dated June 27, 2014.

The case of “fibromyalgia”

Although this condition was included in the International Classification of Diseases by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1991, it has long Been Considered as “sham” and not a real disease.

The most recent case law, especially in Catalonia (Judgments TSJ Catalonia June 23, 2014, to February 24, 2015, to June 5, 2015, or November 3, 2015) Has Begun to Recognize The Importance of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome as a causes of declaration of incapacity for work.

In These Judgments underlying the idea That the disability must be understood as the loss of capacity for serious anatomical or functional reductions That reduce or nullify the labor capacity, and without That would inhibit the rating The Possibility of recovery of working capacity When It present as uncertain or very long term.

Modern life is killing our children: Cancer rate in young people up 40 per cent in 16 years

[ A new analysis of statistics from the British Government carried out by researchers of the charitable organization “Children with Cancer UK” found that the number of young people diagnosed with cancer has increased by 40 percent over the past 16 years, and no doubt environmental factors are be held responsible.
Among them, there are electromagnetic fields. ]

3 September 2016 – “The Telegraph” / Science, by 

A polluted London road 
Air pollution, obesity and a rise in electrical and magnetic fields is blamed for the surge in childhood cancer

Modern life is killing children with the number of youngsters diagnosed with cancer rising 40 per cent in the past 16 years Because of air pollution, pesticides, poor diets and radiation, scientists have warned.
New analysis of government statistics by researchers at the charity  Children with Cancer UK found That there are now 1,300 more cancer cases a year Compared with 1998, the first time all data sets were published.

The rise is most apparent in teenagers and young adults aged between 15 and 24, where the incident rate has risen from around 10 to nearly 16 cases in 100,000.

Researchers Say That Although some of the rise can be Explained by improvements in cancer diagnoses and more screening, the Majority is probably Caused by environmental factors.

Dr Denis Henshaw, Professor of Human Radiation Effects at  Bristol University , the scientific adviser for Children with Cancer UK, said air pollution was by far the biggest culprit, accounting for around 40 per cent of the rise, but other elements of modern lifestyles are Also to blame.

Among These Are obesity, pesticides and solvents inhaled during pregnancy, circadian rhythm disruption through too much bright light at night, radiation from x-rays and CT scans, smoking during and after pregnancy, magnetic fields from power lines, gadgets in homes, and potentially , radiation from mobile phones.

Children are surrounded by electrical fields, scientists warn

“When you look at cancers such as childhood leukemia there is no doubt That environmental factors are playing a big role,” said Dr. Henshaw. “We were shocked to see the figures, and it’s modern lifestyle I’m afraid.

“Many items on the list of environmental causes are now known to be carcinogenic, such as air pollution and pesticides and solvents. There has been good research to suggest a mother’s diet can damage DNA in cord blood. Light at night we know is very disruptive for the body, Which is why shift workers have such bad health.

“Burnt barbecues, the electric fields of power lines, the electricity supply in your home. Hairdryers. It’s all of These things coming together, and It Seems to be teenagers and young people That are most affected.

“What’s worrying is it is very hard to avoid a lot of These things. How can you avoid air pollution? It sometimes feels like we are fighting a losing battle. ”

M hours than 4,000 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every year in Britain , and cancer is the leading cause of death in children aged one to 14.

D iagnoses of colon cancer among children and young people has risen 200 per cent since 1998, while thyroid cancer has doubled. Ovarian and cervical cancers have also risen by 70 per cent and 50 per cent rispettivamente.

The charity estimates That the rise in cases now costs the NHS an extra £ 130 million a year Compared with August 16 years.

But experts believe many cancers could be Prevented with lifestyle changes such as Allowing children to attend nursery to boost Their immune system, not painting children’s rooms with oil-based paints, avoiding night shift work and processed meats in pregnancy.

The figures were released ahead of the Children with Cancer UK conference Which is taking place in London this week.

Other cancer experts said they had Also noticed a rise in cancer diagnoses but warned it was too early to draw firm conclusions on the causes.

The jury is out on Whether phones can cause cancer scientist but fear it could be contributing to a rise in cases

Nicola Smith, Cancer Research UK ‘s senior health information officer, said: “Any rise in childhood cancers is worrying but it’s important to remember That less than one per cent of cancer cases in the UK occur in children.

“It’s not yet clear exactly what causes cancer in childhood and research has not shown a link with environmental factors like air pollution and diet during pregnancy. There are some factors Which Can Increase the Risk of childhood cancer like inherited genetic conditions and exposure to radiation – but These Are not usually avoidable and no one Should feel blamed for a child getting cancer.

“Evidence has shown That there are lots of things adults can do to reduce cancer risk and it’s always a good idea to set-up healthy habits as a family, like eating healthily, being active and enjoying the sun safely.”

K ate Lee, chief executive of children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent , Said That a child cancer diagnosis places a huge emotional and financial burden on the whole family.

“Over the last year CLIC Sargent provided support for more than 7,100 families, blackberries than ever before, but we know That we can still only reach two out of three Of Those children and young people diagnosed with cancer,” she added.

“As more young cancer patients are diagnosed every year, we know each Of Those families will need support and are working hard to one day be able to Provide Those services for every young patient.”

Despite the Increase, around 80 per cent of child cancer patients now survive for at least five years. But the aggressive treatments they have as children can have a major impact on future Their health, even if they survive.

Tomorrow, Children with Cancer UK launches a five-point plan calling on the Government and the science and medical community To ensure that all children diagnosed with cancer in the UK have access to precision medicine by 2020.

Accommodation Ideas for Electromagnetic Sensitivity

[ The Job Accommodation Network (JAN) in the United States is a leader in free technical support and reserved about labor issues and employment problems in the event of disability.
It ‘a reference dell’ODEP, Office of Disability Employment Policy, the US Department of Labor (US Department of Labor).
On its official website there is a section dedicated to the problem of EHS.
Despite the exposure of concepts is at times a bit ‘inaccurate, it is significant that attention be paid to the disease and the protection of the sick, which often unfortunately in our country are forced to give up work because of the impossibility of remaining long in environments polluted by Electromagnetic fields and, in the case of both parties that electro chemo-sensitive chemicals. ]

From “JAN” (Job Accommodation Network) website ( http://askjan.org/ ):

There are people who report a sensitivity to electromagnetic sensitivity. Although it Has Been difficult for the environmental health and medical communities to define, individuals with electromagnetic sensitivity report various symptoms including but not limited to fatigue, weakness, neurological issues, immunological issues, gastrointestinal issues, Increased irritability, lack of ability to think Clearly and quickly, sleep disturbance, overall malaise, and anxiety.

Despite the medical community’s difficulty in defining electromagnetic sensitivity, individuals with the condition may benefit from job accommodations. The Following is a quick overview of some of the accommodations That might be useful. To discuss an accommodation situation with a consultant, contact JAN directly.

Accommodation ideas for individuals with electromagnetic sensitivity:

  • Allow communication via typewriter or handwritten notes rather than computer or via the cover computers with Plexiglas or other shielding material
  • Provide headset / handset or alternating headsets extenders to lengthen the distance between devices That triggers symptoms and the employee’s body
  • Change the employee’s shift to allow for less exposure to others’ devices
  • Relocate workplace away from areas where symptoms are triggered. This may include limiting certain types of devices in the vicinity of the employee’s workstation
  • Allow telework (Note: Regarding work at home, Unless the employee wants to work at home, other options Should be explored first to keep the employee in the workplace)
  • Allow the employee to meet with others in areas where triggers are minimized or allow remote access to meetings or activities That must take place in areas That trigger symptoms.
  • Provide wired telephones and network connections
  • Provide building-wide and / or workspace shielding of equipment and devices, for example add filters to fluorescent lights and tape electrical cords
  • Individuals with electrical sensitivity may experience limitations Also from fragrance sensitivity and / or photosensitivity
