- Using a cell phone or digital cordless phone for 2 minutes disrupts the blood-brain barrier. Longer use permanently destroys brain cells. Dizziness, nausea, insomnia, memory loss, inability to concentrate, fatigue, depression, anxiety and agitation are neurological symptoms warning you of irreversible damage.
- You are also irradiating everyone within 100 yards of you, causing more vulnerable people pain and suffering – head pain, chest pain, palpitations, muscle spasms, etc. You may not feel the effects immediately, but at least 3% of the population does.
- The cell towers that make your cell phone work are irradiating the entire countryside. If a cell phone will work where you live, you are being irradiated 24 hrs a day.
- Radiation from towers and phones also cause: strokes and heart attacks in young people, high blood pressure, arrhythmias, asthma, flu-like illness, reduced sperm count, auditory disturbance, epilepsy, autism, attention deficit disorder, thyroid disease, cataracts, leukaemia, and brain cancer.
- Cell towers affect our forests: trees grow more slowly, lose their leaves or needles prematurely and become susceptible to fungal diseases.
- Cell towers disorient and kill migrating birds
- Cell towers lower milk production in dairy cows, and cause birth deformities in wild and domestic animals.
- Microwave pollution has grown out of control since 1996, when digital cell phones were introduced. One million Americans are already so disabled by electromagnetic pollution that they cannot work. Increasingly many are also homeless environmental refugees with no place to hide.
HERE IS WHAT SCIENTISTS ARE FINDING:
Every Cell Phone Call Damages Brain Cells
Scientists at Lund University in Sweden exposed rats to a cell phone just once for two hours, and then sacrificed them two months later. The rats which had been exposed had scattered areas of dead or damaged neurons throughout their brains. (1)
This is alarming, because up to 70% of cell phone users feel one or more of the following: warmth around the ear, tingling or burning sensations in the face, fatigue, headache, dizziness, discomfort, difficulty concentrating, and memory loss. (2,3) These are warning signs of nervous system damage.
Like Cigarettes, Cell Phones Harm Both Users and Non-Users
Second-hand radiation comes from nearby cell phones, and from nearby and even distant cell towers.
The researchers at Lund University found brain cells damage even when exposure levels were no higher than what people who live near cell towers are being exposed to. (1) French researchers found that the closer people live to cell towers, the more likely they are to suffer from fatigue, irritability, headaches, dizziness, nausea, loss of appetite, sleep disturbances, difficulty concentrating, memory loss, skin problems, visual and hearing disturbances, and cardiovascular problems. (4)
Spanish researchers found the same thing. (5)
When third generation cell phone technology was developed, the Dutch government did double blind experiments to test it. Exposed subjects experienced dizziness, nervousness, chest pain, shortness of breath, numbness and tingling, weakness, and difficulty concentrating. Exposure levels were equal to what people who live cell towers are exposed to. (6)
Men Who Wear Cell Phones On Their Waist Have Lower Sperm Count
Cell phones emit radiation continually, even in standby mode when they are not in use.
Fertility specialists at the University of Szeged in Hungary have found that men who carry a cell phone on their belt or in a trouser pocket have up to a 30% reduction in both sperm count and sperm motility. The research, conducted over a 13-month period with 221 patients, showed that the reduction in fertility was strongly correlated with both intensity of cell phone use, and the amount of time the men carried the phone on their body every day.
