FCC to revise 15 years old cell phone radiation standards

In June 2012, UC FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski brought to attention a notice, suggesting FCC’s cell phone radiation safety standards are out of date. The set of guidelines on safe limits concerning electromagnetic field exposure has last been updated in 1996. Since then, situation with electromagnetic pollution has significantly changed for the worse; both on personal and global level, today we are more exposed to man-made EMF radiation than even before in human history. One of the reasons why it has been suggested FCC standards should be finally revised is that in 1996 we didn’t have information and results from scientific studies we have today, indicating possible toxicity of EMF radiation on human health, especially when it comes to long term consequences of exposing kids and young adults to this kind of radiation.

Nine months later, FCC announced they would review RF exposure policies. Official FCC statement is that this is a routine review and they want to ensure the safety standards and measures represent appropriate protection from potential adverse effects of RF radiation exposure. The review will address current standards and whether they need to be updated, but also whether FCC’s testing practices should be altered.

Original guidelines from 1996 were based on behavioral study of impact that cell phone radiation made on animals during 1980s. From that time, numerous studies made both on humans and animals, linked EMF exposure to cancer, low fertility, miscarriages, sleeping disorders, depression and inability to concentrate, behavioral problems in children, ADHD and many other diseases and health problems. World Health Organization has classified cell phone radiation as “possible carcinogen”, putting it in the same group with gasoline engine exhaust and lead. US National Cancer Institute has acknowledged there are some concerns when it comes to cell phone safety.

Research results are in conflict; while some studies show cell phone radiation within the current safety standards is safe, other studies showed the quite opposite. Henry Lai from University of Washington states there are more than 60 studies made during past 10 years, that showed clear biological changes in cells even at SAR levels well lower than current FCC standards allow as safe.

Studies take time, and although scientist have discovered many indications EMFs can even damage human DNA, at this point no one can know with precise certainty what RF radiation exposure actually does to human health. Mobile phones are relatively new convenience in our lives and it will take more time and more studies to see true impact of EMF radiation exposure on our health. However, there is more than enough evidence raising concern and suggesting so called precautionary principle; until we know exactly how toxic EMF is, we should try to lower our exposure to it as much as possible and therefore minimize the risk of any disease caused by EMFs.

Strengthening our natural bio-electric fields

All living things produce certain bioelectric field. When our natural electromagnetic field is balanced and unharmed our immune system is strong and we have higher resistance to viruses, bacteria or yeast fungi and we generally have better ability to stay healthy.

Man-made electronic pollution tends to disturb our own natural electromagnetic field. While we are exposed to it, our own bioelectric field starts to vibrate similarly as artificial field does. Since EMF pollution is relatively new health hazard, knowledge on possible effects of manmade electronic pollution has been limited but substantial enough to raise serious concern.

EMF waves, emitted from so many various sources we use and are exposed to in our everyday life (such as cell phones, computers, domestic electric devices, smart meters, cell phone towers etc.) have the tendency to build up. This means that at the end of the day our total sum of EMF radiation exposure is higher today than ever during human history. Children, pregnant women and patients with already compromised immune system are at even higher risk from an average healthy adult. Their bodies have lower tolerance toward electronic pollution and absorb more EMF radiation. If our natural electromagnetic field starts vibrating at the frequency similar to the artificial one we are exposed to, this impacts our body on cellular level, disturbs the way cells interact in-between themselves and according to the latest studies can even cause serious damage to DNA.

There are many things that can be done to prevent this. The most important is to keep the distance from EMF sources and to reduce EMF exposure as much as possible. Intensity of any EMF is decreasing with distance and much of electronic pollution can be avoided this way. Also, where possible, change your wireless technologies with wired ones to additionally improve your EMF safety. You can read more on EMF protection tips here.

These are some simple things we can practice in order to improve and harmonize the state of our natural electromagnetic field and bring it back to normal.

–       Eating a good quality food. Use healthy products and avoid artificial substances.

–       Deep breathing. Use any chance you have to enjoy the benefit of fresh air and build up your lung capacity.

–       Take a bath instead of showering. Water is a carrier of electrical charge that will help your own bioelectric field to balance itself.

–       Lay upon the ground. Earth natural electromagnetic field also has ability to get your own field healthy aligned.

–       Pleasant and positive thinking will strengthen your immune system

Research showed unnatural man made EMFs can inhibit human body’s ability to synchronize with Earth’s natural magnetic pulse, which reduces melatonin, major cancer suppressant and cell rejuvenating neuro-hormone produced by brain.  There are certain EMF protection products that can help in shielding from electromagnetic pollution. Their design is such that they resonate with Schumann resonance, beating at 7.83 GHz -Earth’s natural EMF, and therefore assist your own body to keep its natural bio field intact.

Tablet PCs in schools – a step forward or backward?

Today, more and more schools are deciding to introduce tablet PCs to their students. When compared to regular computers, tablet PCs are portable, practical and simpler to use. It makes studying easier, more fun and it is a good example of how technology can serve a good purpose of making our lives more comfortable and our time more productive. But, what are other aspects of introducing this technology into schools?

Tablet PCs are connected to internet only through wireless technology. There is usually no possibility of using an adapter to avoid wireless networking.

The fact that World Health Organization has declared EMF radiation as possible carcinogen (right next to DDT, lead and engine exhaust) along with various scientific studies linking man made electromagnetic waves to many diseases and health problems, a wide introduction of wireless technology to schools raises many concerns. Children’s yet fully undeveloped bodies make them far more vulnerable to EMFs compared to adults. Bioinitiative Report states that current SAR levels are obsolete; they need to be updated with new research results and take into account that safe SAR levels for an adult are not the same as for children. Having in mind that EMF field is always highest closest to the EMF source, many parents are also concerned if tablet PCs will increase level of exposure for their kids since usually tablets are held closer to the body than regular computers.

Wi-Fi technology emits more EMF waves than wired one and it can be easily measured. Wireless routers and wireless computers emit radio frequency microwave radiation and they both send it intensely back and forth through the air. These waves penetrate human bodies and disturb natural electromagnetic fields of human cells. Consequences vary, depending on many factors, and although we still don’t fully understand them, many will agree that precaution is advised. It’s easy to see that introduction of tablet PCs could make classrooms swamped with EMF radiation. Studies showed that some milder health problems such as unexplained headaches, fatigue, lack of concentration and inability to sleep have disappeared after people who were suffering from them simply removed wireless technology from their homes, switching from wireless internet and phones to the wired ones.

There are other ways students can be provided with technology they need in order to learn but at the same time eliminating EMF radiation from the classrooms. If tablet PCs are to be introduced into schools, should the schools also introduce precautionary measures and what would those measures be? Should the radiation be measured, monitored and should parents have access to this information. Who will make sure that radiation levels in classrooms do not exceed safe levels? Parents point out that these are some of the questions that must be addressed prior to introduction of strong EMF sources into schools.
