Microwave News: $25 million study finds cell phone radiation causes cancer in rats

Microwave News: $25 million study finds cell phone radiation causes cancer in rats

Microwave News reports today that the $25 million dollar study conducted by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) has found that exposure to cell phone radiation caused cancer in rats.  See Microwave News for more details.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization should now have sufficient evidence to raise the classification of radiofrequency radiation from "possibly carcinogenic" (Group 2B) to "carcinogenic" (Group 1).

The findings of this laboratory study parallel the results of numerous epidemiologic studies in humans which have found that long-term heavy cell phone use increases the risk of brain cancer (or glioma), a malignant tumor in glial cells, and acoustic neuroma, a nonmalignant tumor in Schwann cells in the brain. In the rats, however, the affected Schwann cells were in the heart.

The study was proposed by the NTP in 2001. This long-awaited study is the only research on cell phone radiation health effects that our federal government has conducted since the 1990's. The government should release the study results soon.

Rats and mice were exposed to two second generation (2G) cell phone technologies which are still used for voice transmission. Both 2G technologies caused tumors in rats, but not in mice.

2G technologies will soon be obsolete because cell phone companies in the U.S. are planning to use 4G LTE for voice transmission. However, recent research on 3G and 4G suggests these technologies, in spite of their lower power densities, may be more risky than 2G.
The human studies showing increased risk of glioma and acoustic neuroma are listed in the references to my recent post, "Should Cellphones Have Warning Labels?" (Wall Street Journal).

Cell Phone Cancer Controversy Will Never Be the Same Again

Cell Phone Radiation Boosts Cancer Rates in Animals

U.S. Government Expected To Advise Public of Tumor Risk
The cell phone cancer controversy will never be the same again.

The U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) is expected to issue a public announcement that cell phone radiation presents a cancer risk for humans. The move comes soon after its recently completed study showed statistically significant increases in cancer among rats that had been exposed to GSM or CDMA signals for two-years.

Discussions are currently underway among federal agencies on how to inform the public about the new findings. NTP senior managers believe that these results should be released as soon as possible because just about everyone is exposed to wireless radiation all the time and therefore everyone is potentially at risk.

"Should Cellphones Have Warning Labels?" (Wall Street Journal)

"Should Cellphones Have Warning Labels?"

The Wall Street Journal asked me to write an essay about why cellphones should have warning labels. Dr. Larry Junck, a professor of neurology at the University of Michigan, was asked to write the opposing arguments. The essays were published today with the title, "Should Cellphones Have Warning Labels?"

Prior to publication, the Journal shared with me four of Dr. Junck's assertions, but my responses were cut due to space limitations. Hence, I added references to my essay, and I inserted comments on Dr. Junck's essay.The annotated article is posted on my Electromagnetic Radiation Safety website at

Causes and Symptoms of Brain Cancer

Causes and Symptoms of Brain Cancer

The brain is the most important organ in your body.  It maintains optimal performance of your body’s systems – down to the operation of every cell and drop of blood.
 When a patient hears the term “tumor” in combination with their brain, there is instant panic and fear.  Even a benign (non-cancerous) tumor in the brain can interrupt key functions of your central nervous system depending on the location and mass.

A tumor that develops in the brain first is called a primary tumor.  These can form in the actual brain tissue or near the brain in nerves, the pituitary gland, the pineal gland, or in the membrane casing that covers the brain.

Cancer that begins elsewhere in the body and spreads to the brain is known as secondary or metastatic.  This is the most common form of brain cancer and is usually diagnosed in those who have had some form of cancer in the past.  Typical cancers that metastasize to the brain most often are breast, colorectal, kidney, lung and melanoma (the most severe form of skin cancer).

Symptoms of a Brain Tumor
  • Sudden headaches or changes in your personal headache patterns
  • Gradual worsening of severity of headaches
  • Steady increase in the number of headaches
  • Difficulty with balance, dizziness, or nausea (possibly with vomiting)
  • Vision impairment such as blurred sight, double vision, or changes in peripheral vision
  • Hearing impairment
  • Numbness, lack of mobility, or loss of sensation in limbs
  • Confusion or inability to recall common tasks, people, or things
  • Changes in personality, behavior and mood
  • Seizures

Top 3 Primary Risk Factors for Brain Cancer
  1. Age: Your risk for all cancer (including brain cancer) increases as you age.  More than 75% of all cancers are diagnosed after the age of 55.  However, there are specific types of rare tumors that are exclusive to children.
  2. Family History: If someone in your family has had a brain tumor, it increases your risk.  However, the number of brain tumors linked to family history is miniscule.
  3. Radiation: Yes, as one of the top three traditional treatments for cancer(along with surgery and chemotherapy), radiation therapy increases your risk of brain cancer.  This includes radiation from cell phones!
Naturally, there are other risks that include lifestyle choices (smoking and drinking), environmental pollutants, heavy metal toxicity, severe inflammation and chronic infection.

However, age, family history, and radiation treatments (to “cure” your cancer) are what put you at the highest risk of developing a cancerous tumor in your brain.
Never Lose Hope
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle to prevent disease is the best course of action for total body health.  However, if you are diagnosed with brain cancer, consider all your options.

 Alternative treatments such as the use of Essiac tea, Hoxsey tea, hemp, herbal remedies, hyperthermia, and oxygen therapies (just to name a few) should definitely be considered.  Interestingly, these “alternative” therapies have been used for thousands of years, so by definition, they are actually “traditional.”

Traditional treatments for brain cancer depend on where the tumor is located, how large the mass is, and if it can be reached safely.  Oncologists rely almost exclusively on the “Big 3” (surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation), despite the fact that radiation is one of the causes of brain cancer.  Surprisingly, these “traditional” treatments have been around for less than a century and their success rate is less than 5%, so they should really be referred to as “alternative” treatments.

Complementary/Integrative treatment includes methodology such as acupuncture and meditation to control the side effects of the “Big 3” treatments and have shown excellent results.  Cancer immunotherapy is also a cutting edge therapy that you will want to consider if you are diagnosed with brain cancer. Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski has developed an integrative cancer treatment protocol based on the use of peptides called “antineoplastons.” This treatment has proven to be very successful with many types of brain cancer.
It is important to do your homework.  Know your body, understand your risks and safeguard yourself in as many ways as possible from all forms of cancer and other serious disease.

Putting prevention techniques in place worldwide would reduce the incidences of cancer by more than half.  Big Pharma, Big Agra, and the Cancer Industry do NOT want you to know that.  They don’t want you to take care of your body and prevent the majority of cancers through natural methods such as lifestyle changes and diet.

That would affect their profits.  We can’t have that now, can we?

Write to Access Board: Demand hearing on public building inaccessibility caused by Wi-Fi

Write to Access Board: Demand hearing on public building inaccessibility caused by Wi-Fi

Please pass this on widely:

The Access Board establishes the best practices for accessibility that are then binding on governmental bodies and potentially the private sector.  (It is not a health agency.)  It is imperative that the Access Board take action to protect the rights of Americans who experience functional impairment upon exposure to wireless technology.  Access to public buildings is supposed to be guaranteed.  WiFi makes buildings inaccessible for many people and should be banned from public buildings and spaces.  Many people are unable to access medical care due to the saturation of hospitals and medical centers with radiation from wireless technology.  Since access to medical care is considered to be a basic human right, this is obviously a violation of the human rights of millions of people who experience functional impairment when exposed to radiation from wireless devices.

The number of people unable to access public spaces due to WiFi and other wireless technology in public buildings has increased as more and more people become overexposed to radiation from wireless technology.  Radiofrequency sickness is an environmentally induced functional impairment.  

Even ICNIRP recognizes the need to protect vulnerable populations by lowering general exposure levels: “Different groups in a population may have differences in their ability to tolerate a particular NIR (non-ionizing radiation) exposure. For example, children, the elderly, and some chronically ill people might have a lower tolerance for one or more forms of NIR exposure than the rest of the population. Under such circumstances, it may be useful or necessary to develop separate guideline levels for different groups within the general population, but it may be more effective to adjust the guidelines for the general population to include such groups. ” from ICNIRP Statement, General Approach to Protection Against Non-ionizing Radiation, (HEALTH PHYSICS 82(4):540‐548; 2002)

The Access Board has acknowledged the problem in the past (see, but has never taken real action because political pressure was applied shortly after this letter was written.  It was also cited as an access barrier in the Access Board supported IEQ report (  It is time that they take action to make public buildings accessible to all again.  The public hearing on WiFi blocking accessibility is a necessary first step.

Please take a moment to contact the Access Board to request that they hold a hearing on WiFi blocking accessibility in public buildings.  A simple email to each contact listed below would be great fine.  Calls followed up by emails would be even better.  Please cc or bcc me ( so that we can keep track of the number of requests made.  You can also enlist the aid of your Congress person.  Congress people are supposed to advocate with federal agencies on behalf of constituents.  Your Congress person can and should contact the Access Board on your behalf requesting a public hearing on WiFi causing public buildings to be inaccessible.

You can find your Congress person here:

This is something that is long overdue and for better or worse, the Access Board has stated that it is a political question as to whose civil rights are violated, so it is necessary to press this point politically and demand a full hearing.

Huge Increases in Mental Illness in US Children

Huge Increases in Mental Illness in US Children

October 2013: The NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health) reported 25-30% of kids between ages 13-18 will experience an anxiety disorder.


November 2013: Time Magazine reports that the rate of reported anxiety disorders among U.S. troops jumped 327% between 2000 and 2012.

Screen Shot 2013-11-04 at 3.09.37 PM
September 2007: The number of American children and adolescents treated for bipolar disorder increased 40-fold [that's 3900%!] from 1994 to 2003 according to a study published in the September 2007 issue of The Archives of General Psychiatry..  Bipolar disorder is characterized by extreme mood swings. The senior author of the study, Dr. Mark Olfson of the New York State Psychiatric Institute at the Columbia University Medical Center, said, “I have been studying trends in mental health services for some time, and this finding really stands out as one of the most striking increases in this short a time. The increase makes bipolar disorder more common among children than clinical depression, the authors said.


Severe, disabling mental illness has dramatically increased in the United States. “The tally of those who are so disabled by mental disorders that they qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) increased nearly two and a half times between 1987 and 2007 — from one in 184 Americans to one in 76. For children, the rise is even more startling — a thirty-five-fold [i.e. 3400%!] increase in the same two decades,” as Marcia Angell summarizes in the New York Times Book Review.  In 1998, Martin Seligman, then president of the American Psychological Association, spoke to the National Press Club about an American depression epidemic: “We discovered two astonishing things about the rate of depression across the century. The first was there is now between 10 and 20 times as much of it [depression] as there was 50 years ago. And the second is that it has become a young person’s problem. When I first started working in depression 30 years ago … the average age of which the first onset of depression occurred was 29.5 … Now the average age is between 14 and 15.” 

In 2011, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that antidepressant use in the United States has increased nearly 400 percent in the last two decades, making antidepressants the most frequently used class of medications by Americans ages 18-44 years. 

In May 2013, CDC reported in “Mental Health Surveillance Among Children—United States, 2005–2011,” the following: “A total of 13%–20% of children living in the United States experience a mental disorder in a given year, and surveillance during 1994–2011 has shown the prevalence of these conditions to be increasing.”


What has happened in the last 2 decades?

Wireless radiation exposure has increased tremendously since the 1990s.  The Telecommuncations Act was passed in 1996, which forced local governments to allow the installation of cell towers without regard to health considerations, allowing them to be installed in parks, schools, college campuses, and churches.  The TCA has enabled the number of cell towers to increase from 66,000 in 1998 to 300,000 in 2013, and the number of cell phones more than doubled from 2003 to 2013  

The ipad, which emits higher levels of RF radiation than cell phones, was introduced in 2010.  In 2013, LAUSD implemented Wi-Fi throughout all its schools, which led many other school districts across the country to follow suit.  Most schools do not have wired internet connections anymore, and have strong, high capacity Wi-Fi systems to allow each student to connect 3 devices to school Wi-Fi simultaneously.  Industrial Wi-Fi systems are now 1800 times faster than they were back in 1997 - faster speeds mean more complex signals because more data is transmitted within the same period of time. The pulsed signals used to transmit the data in wireless transmission overlap the same frequency range as that exhibited by our own brain waves (alpha, beta, delta, gamma, theta), i.e. 100Hz or less.

For explanation of mechanism of wireless radiation causing neurological effects:
- Compromised integrity in the tight junction barriers in our body, which wireless microwave radiation can cause.  "The opening of our tight junction barriers by electromagnetic fields can account for many modern illnesses, ranging from asthma to multiple allergies and Alzheimer’s disease."We would not expect an immediate effect because the brain has spare capacity, but prolonged or repeated exposure to cell phone or similar radiation would be expected to cause a progressive loss of functional neurons and result in early dementia and Alzheimer’s disease in humans. The extreme sensitivity of the blood-brain barrier to the radiation could mean that even sitting close to someone using a cell phone could affect you too." - Dr. Andrew Goldsworthy, former advisor to the European Space Agency.  Read more about it here

- Microwave radiation activating VGCCs.   In 2015, Dr. Martin Pall, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry at Washington State University, identified a mechanism where microwave radiation can activate VGCCs (voltage gated calcium channels) in brain cells,which increases intracellular calcium, which can cause neurological diseases by disrupting synapse formation.  Wireless radiation activating the VGCC and increasing intracellular calcium leads to degradation of proteins in the tight barrier junctions needed to maintain the integrity of the blood-brain barrierwhich leads to many neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Alzheimer's and dementia) With enough exposure to increasing intracellular calcium, spines can actually disappear, and end up with neurons that are missing synapses completely, so neurons are not connected to each other anymore.  Read more about it here

Scroll down to "Neurotoxic Effects", "Cognition and Impaired Memory", and "Behavioral Issues" to read about the research showingdamage from wireless radiation to the brain

California Medical Association (CMA), a group of 40,000 physicians in California and a member of the American Medical Association (AMA), issued a resolution (Dec 2014) stating that FCC standards are “inadequate to protect human health” and “peer reviewed research has demonstrated adverse biological effects of wireless EMF including single and double stranded DNA breaks, creation of reactive oxygen species, immune dysfunction, cognitive processing effects, stress protein synthesis in the brain, altered brain development, sleep and memory disturbances, ADHD, abnormal behavior, sperm dysfunction, and brain tumors”

Proof of neurological damage caused by cell phone radiation can be seen here in this video by Dr. Devra Davis, oncology epidemiologist, former health advisor to the White House and Nobel Prize Winner, where she presents research and pictures of brain and spinal cord damage in mice exposed to cell phone radiation prenatally. founded 2014 - an organization of scientists and doctors around the world concerned about wireless radiation affecting fetal brain development.  The research of Yale Professor Dr. Hugh Taylor showed prenatal exposure resulted in decreased memory and hyperactivity in offspring.  Professor Martha Herbert, MD PhD, a Harvard pediatric neurologist: “RF radiation from wifi and cell towers can exert a disorganizing effect on the ability to learn and remember, and can also be destabilizing to immune and metabolic function.” Read more about the science and watch their excellent short video here

Dr.Karl Maret, MD, with degrees also in electrical engineering and biomedical engineering, talks about Wi-Fi and EHS (electrohypersensitivity) in children. Wi-Fi has evolved to very high speeds. We are now at 1800 times faster speeds than we were back in 1997 with 1st generation Wi-Fi. (The higher the speed the greater the potential for interference within our bodies) Used a German dosimeter to record levels of Wi-Fi radiation exposures on an EHS child at school and correlates symptoms (headaches) to chart of Wi-Fi signals - when the Wi-Fi levels were high, the student developed headaches. Human brain has 5 million magnetite crystals/gram tissue, and these crystals absorb wireless radiation. (10 minutes)

Here's a video by the government of Cyprus telling parents how to protect their children from wireless radiation
