Cell Phones - Ear, Eye Damage, High Blood Pressure & More!
Further to: Em Fields On Brain Tumor Incidence - Chemicals And Cell Phones ... here is more incriminating data. This adds to the already copious data on the negative harm from EMF (Electro Magnetic Radiation). Just as EMF can help in some instances so can it harm if used inappropriately. The microwave 2.4 mhz as the 60 Hz* mains frequencies are one of the most harm full ones. Surely given the data, using safer frequencies and improving RF design and wiring could do much to improve matters!
* "Adey has also reported that certain frequency bands between 15-60 Hz have been found to promote cancers. Frequencies in this range have been found to alter cell protein synthesis, mRNA functions, immune responses and intercellular communication (Adey, 1992)."

Instead, the dependency of many to follow the loudest industry experts (shills), will either keep most in the dark or allow them to ignore and or deny the vast body of data no matter how strong, until it is too late. Then they will wonder why them should an injury occur???
Thanks to the untiring work of Martin Weatherall and others to keep us abreast of this important and largely avoidable health issue. For this very reason, given that I got along just fine prior to these critters, I have never owned a cell phone even when it was offered free at work. Further all WiFi devices in my home have been disabled and I use the plan old ethernet cable. Seems like refusal to use these devices is the only way to make the industry face this issue hence, forcing them to reduce exposure to all.
When reading this article, please remember that the 'air tube' connected headsets are considered much safer than 'wired' headphones. MW.
Also as per the late Dr. Adey's work using the left year instead of the right hear may reduce brain cancer risk. CG

PGIMER: A SURVEY HAS BEEN DONE ON EFFECTS OF CELLPHONE USAGE
Use of earphones may reduce risk of hearing loss: Study
Express News Service
Chandigarh, August 9: A preliminary study conducted by the ENT department at the PGI has shown that long-term mobile phone users are at a higher risk of developing hearing loss, particularly at higher speech frequencies.
Presence of fullness in the ears, ear warmth and prevalence of strange noises in the ear were some of the complaints that long-term mobile phone users faced frequently.
The study, conducted over a period of 18 months, studied nearly 100 long-term mobile phone users in Chandigarh.
The subjects were divided into three categories people using mobile phones for one to two years, two to four years and above four years.
"The study was aimed to assess if long term mobile use had adverse effects on hearing and central auditory pathways," said Dr Naresh Panda, HoD, of the Otolaryngology department. "We found that people using mobile phone for more than four years and for longer periods than 30 minutes in a day are at risk of developing hearing loss at a later stage," Dr Panda added.
He said that the hearing level of the subjects were tested at different frequencies and certain abnormalities were recorded in these subjects.He added that use of earphones would help in minimising the risks. He said that most of the risks occurring due to electro magnetic radiation will be reduced , if the phone is held away from the ear.The team, including Dr Jaimanti Bakshi and Dr Rishab Jain, emphasised that the study was only preliminary and a larger study needs to be done to arrive at concrete conclusions.
"We want to tell people that there is a possibility of hear loss, which cannot be reversed," said Dr Panda. The department has applied to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) for more funds to conduct a larger study on the issue. "In order to reach a scientific conclusion we need to cover a larger population," Dr Panda said.

There is a worldwide crisis of people suffering from high blood pressure. Robert Riedlinger has put together three news stories which link this very serious health problem, with exposure to electro magnetic radiation, including exposure from the use of cell phones.
Please pass this information to persons who you know, that suffer from high blood pressure.

From: Robert Riedlinger
Details of the study follow earlier research linking mobile phones and masts to memory loss, high blood pressure, heart disease, dizziness and headaches. (see below)
High blood pressure is out of control around the world, with the number of sufferers expected to exceed a billion within 20 years, experts warn.
One in four adults already has the condition, which increases the risk of heart disease, stroke and death.
But unhealthy modern lifestyles mean the toll could hit 1.56 billion by 2025, up from 972 million in 2000, The Lancet medical journal reports.
The biggest problem is poor compliance with treatment, an editorial claims.
Despite very effective and cost-effective treatments, target blood pressure levels are very rarely reached, even in countries where cost of medication is not an issue, says the editorial.
"Many patients still believe that hypertension is a disease that can be cured, and stop or reduce medication when blood pressure levels fall.
"Physicians need to convey the message that hypertension is the first, and easily measurable, irreversible sign that many organs in the body are under attack.
"Perhaps this message will make people think more carefully about the consequences of an unhealthy lifestyle and give preventative measures a real chance," it says.
"High blood pressure is a ticking time bomb and should be taken seriously" - Professor Gareth Beevers of the Blood Pressure Association
Currently, a person in the Western world has a greater than 90% lifetime risk of developing high blood pressure or hypertension.
But lifestyle factors, such as physical inactivity, a salt-rich diet with high processed and fatty foods, and alcohol and tobacco use, mean the problem is spreading at an alarming rate from developed countries to emerging economies, such as India and China, says The Lancet.
Professor Gareth Beevers of the Blood Pressure Association said: "This shows that high blood pressure is a ticking time bomb and should be taken seriously.
"This is preventable, if people of all ages start looking at their lifestyles and start taking the right action to reduce their risk."
Dr Isabel Lee, of The Stroke Association, said: "Every five minutes someone in the UK has a stroke - that's 150,000 every year. Yet, over 40% of these strokes could be prevented by the control of high blood pressure.
"Whilst it is important to get your blood pressure measured regularly, it is equally important that people who are prescribed blood pressure medication continue to take it even once their blood pressure is back under control.
"GPs need to ensure that patients are made fully aware of the importance of continuing with their blood pressure medication."
People can also take additional steps to help improve their lifestyles and reduce their risk of high blood pressure by stopping smoking, having a healthy diet and exercising regularly, she said.
A British Heart Foundation spokeswoman said high blood pressure often remained undiagnosed until a person encountered something as serious, and potentially fatal, as a heart attack or stroke.
"That's why it's vital that people know what their blood pressure is and how they can reduce it if it is high.
"Everyone over 40 years of age should talk to their GP or practice nurse about having a full risk assessment for heart and circulatory disease carried out."

MOBILE PHONE HEALTH WATCH: OUR 20-YEAR STUDY PROVES THERE IS LINK BETWEEN MOBILES AND CANCER RISK OF DEADLY TUMOURS 'SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER' AMONG SOLDIERS EXPOSED TO MICROWAVE RADIATION, SAY SCIENTISTS
A 20-YEAR study of servicemen (in Poland) has established the strongest link yet between mobile phones and cancer.
Research by Polish scientists shows a high cancer death rate among soldiers exposed to microwave radiation - the same as that emitted by the phones.
Although mobile phones have previously been linked by studies to a number of illnesses including cancer, the majority of the research has involved exposing rats or mice - not humans.
This is believed to be the first significant study which shows a link between humans, microwave radiation and cancer.
The team checked the medical records of servicemen who were exposed to the radiation between 1970 and 1990. It then compared their medical histories and death rates to a group of soldiers who were not.
Researchers found those exposed - largely through using military equipment - were more likely to get some cancers.
They were also also more likely to develop a whole range of cancers 10 years earlier than those who had not been.
There were higher death rates from cancers of the skin, brain, blood, digestive system, blood and lymphatic system among the exposed group.
Details of the study follow earlier research linking mobile phones and masts to memory loss, high blood pressure, heart disease, dizziness and headaches.
More than 24 million people in Britain now own mobiles - many of them children below the age of 16.
By the end of 2000 that figure is expected to rise to 30 million.
Exact statistics for the increased risk found in the Polish research will not be available until the scientists have completed their study in 2005.
Hundreds of thousands of servicemen's records were analysed.
Of those, around three per cent had been exposed to microwave radiation.
The study is being conducted at the Military Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology in Warsaw and led by Professor Stanislaw Szmigielski.
It follows initial research - published in 1988 - which found "a significantly higher rate of particular types of cancers in personnel exposed occupationally to radiofrequency and microwaves".
Further research - due to be published shortly but seen last week by the Sunday Mirror - showed a similar trend.
The Polish paper concludes: "To our knowledge, the data for the first time presents a hint that there exists a relation between cancer risk and exposure in microwave radiation fields."
It urges that more research is carried out to confirm the higher death rates.
The majority of those involved in the study had been exposed to between 1Watt/m2 and 6W/m2 of microwave radiation. The European limit for mobile phone radiation is at present set at 4.5W/m2.
A spokesman for Powerwatch - which monitors the mobile phone industry - said the majority of mobiles gave off between 2W/m2 and 4W/m2.
Other studies being partly funded by the European Union into mobiles and cancer are under way.
But the results are not expected to be available until two or three years time.
Dr Michael Clark, spokesman for the National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB), said: "When this research is published we will be taking note.
"We have been calling for this kind of research to be undertaken for some time."
The NRPB maintains that mobile phone radiation levels are within safety limits.
Les Wilson, of London-based Microshield Industries, which manufactures radiation shields for mobile phones, said: "This is yet another piece of research linking mobile use with cancer.
"It's irresponsible for users to continue gambling with their health when they don't have to."
The Sunday Mirror has led the way in warning of the dangers of mobile phones.
In March last year we revealed for the first time how they heat the brain while users make and receive calls.
The following month we revealed the phones scramble the brain and play havoc with the nervous system.
And we reported they could cause high blood pressure which leads to strokes.
Then last October we told of American research which showed that mobiles damage long-term memory.
Following our reports the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee supported our calls for more cash to be spent on research.
Mobiles arrived in Britain in January 1, 1985. The first models weighed 10 times more than the sets currently on sale.
A total of 350 million people now use the phones world-wide and the number being bought globally outstrips the sales of cars and PCs combined.
There were just three million British mobile owners in 1994 - that figure has rocketed to 24 million and is rising fast.
The UK has the fifth highest number of mobiles, after the USA, Japan, China and Italy.
There are over a billion combinations of network tariff and handsets in the UK.
At the current rate of growth, one in two school pupils will have a mobile by the end of 2001.

Recent German reserach shows the magnetic fields emitted during phone use may be detrimental to those having high blood pressure.
LONDON --- Mobile phones, an essential accessory for millions of people, could increase blood pressure significantly, German researchers said yesterday.
In a letter in The Lancet medical journal, Dr Stephan Braune of the University Neurology Clinic in Freiburg, Germany said that radio-frequency electromagnetic fields (EMF) emitted by the telephones pumped up the blood pressure of 10 young volunteers who took part in a study.
Dr Braune and his team attached the phones to the right side of the volunteers' heads and swithced them on by remote control at various intervals.
They measured their heart function and blood pressure (BP) while they were standing and lying down.
There was no sound so the volunteers did not know when they were being exposed to the EMF.
The researchers found that 35 minutes fo radio-frequency EMF caused "increases in resting BP between five and 10 mm HG". An average good blood pressure is 136/75 mm HG.
The finding could have adverse effects on people sufering from high blood pressure or hypertension, an important risk factor for heart disease and stroke which are leading causes of death in most developed countries.
The researchers said the increase in blood pressure probably resulted from constriction of the arteries by the radio frequency electro-magnetic fields.
According to a report early this year in the Medical Journal of Australia, a sharp rise in the incidence of brain tumours there may be linked to the use of mobile telephones.
Cancer specailist Andrew Davidson of Fremantle Hospital in Western Australia said the state's cancer registry had revealed a 50 percent rise in the incidence of the disease in men and a 62.5 percent increase for women in the decade from 1982.
"It is conjectured that the rise in incidence is related to the use of analogue mobile phones in the late 80s," Dr Davidson wrote in a letter to the journal.
But former Telstra telecommunications scientist Bruce Hocking said that on the evidence so far, there was no proven risk of brain cancer from mobile phones or other communication devices.
Mobile telephones have been linked to a variety of health problems ranging from fatique, headaches to burning skin, but there is still no proof that the gagets pose any serious health risks -- REUTERS, AFP.
Author's comment: One way to minimize risks is to purchase an external ear-plug accessory for your phone.
