All along, Industry and the Federal Government have
insisted that either:
not enough research has been done on EMF Bioeffects to
determine the potential risk, or
plenty of research has been done to determine that there
is no risk.
That these two positions seem to be mutually exclusive
appears to have eluded those in charge of public relations
... what is the source of this ambiguity? Is it accidental?
Is it intentional, and if so, why?
Do Governments Really Believe,
There Are No Dangerous
Bioeffects From EMF Exposure?
The terms risk and safe, which are essential to a meaningful
dialog on this issue, have in this context, undiscussed
controversial definitions, that is, they have been craftily
re-defined to mean something other than their intended,
(dictionay) definition. Safe and risk, as defined in
the dictionary, are absolutes. You are either safe, or
you are not safe. You are either at risk, or you are
not at risk.
A good example of disagreement is the NCRP pre-release
leak of "recommendations." This
is a group of people working on THE SAME REPORT, who completely
on what the conclusions should be. Imagine people in different
agencies with mutually-exclusive interests, or people in
Industry, with jobs, and the future of whole technologies
at stake? (Here I am assuming the leak originated with
someone inside who thought the final recommendations would
not be consistant with the data.)
The people who make up the Federal Government do not
agree on EMR Bioeffects, so how can the Federal Government
appear to be consistent? Here are some contradictory
positions taken by various US Government agencies, or

The Dark Side of Technology
by Herbert Ross, D.C.
and Keri Brenner, L.Ac.
with Burton Goldberg
Electromagnetic fields are a type of low-level radiation generated by computer
terminals, microwave ovens, and other electronic devices. The Earth itself produces
some energy fields that are detrimental to human health as well, commonly referred
to as geopathic stress. While the intensity of these fields is small, studies
continue to show that they may be a factor in a number of chronic illnesses,
including cancer, heart disease, and sleep disorders.
An electromagnetic field can be likened to an invisible
energy web (shaped somewhat like the contour lines on a
topographical map) produced by electricity that, in turn,
creates a magnetic field. While EMFs are part of nature
and in fact are radiated by the human body and its individual
organs, the quality and intensity (called respectively
frequency and gauss field strength) of the energy forming
this contoured web can either support or destroy health.
As a general rule, EMFs generated by technological devices
tend to be much more harmful than naturally occurring EMFs.
Researchers once thought EMFs, especially very low frequency
and extremely low frequency EMFs, were safe because they
were of such low strength compared to other forms of radiation,
such as those from a nuclear reactor or X rays. But now,
as technology proliferates and people are using more electronic
devices, some researchers suspect EMFs are contributing
to a subtle assault on people's immune systems and overall
Electromagnetic changes in the environment can adversely
affect the energy balance of the human organism and contribute
to disease. We are surrounded by stress-producing electromagnetic
fields generated by the electrical wiring in homes and
offices, televisions, computers and video terminals, microwave
ovens, overhead lights, power lines, and the hundreds of
motors that can generate higher than normal gauss strengths
(magnetic energy measuring unit). EMFs interact with living
systems, affecting enzymes related to growth regulation,
pineal gland metabolism (regulation of the sleep hormone,
melatonin), and cell division and multiplication.Test

Powerful electromagnetic fields exist under overhead power
lines. The cables carried on pylons across the countryside
often have potentials of four hundred thousand volts or
more. If you stand under such a line you will often be
able to hear a rhythmic humming. In damp weather you can
hear the crackling as some of the electricity discharges
into the atmosphere.
Worried About High Tension Power Lines
Residents near Sydney staged a dramatic demonstration of EMF concerns
by lighting up fluorescent lightbulbs - unplugged - underneath power
lines. (Sydney 7 News)
Fluorescent tubes light up by themselves under hi-volrage wires,
dogs die of cancer, etc.
Under the more powerful lines the fields
will light up a fluorescent tube when someone stands underneath
the cables holding one end of the tube. ( Warning: This
is a potentially dangerous trick, so you should not try
it yourself!). At least one individual is on record who
remembered enough school science to erect a cable strung
between two poles under a power line near his home, connected
the ends to his household supply and got free power until
the authorities caught up with him and sued him for stealing
electricity! You do not need physical connections to extract
power from an electrical field.
The person with the fluorescent tube standing under the
power line also had electrical currents and voltages induced
in his body. This happens because the blood and other body
fluids conduct electricity and, as with any conductor in
a moving electric field, a current will be produced in
the body. You have seen how even the much lower voltages
of mains cables at home will produce this phenomenon and
you can demonstrate the effect using an earthed voltmeter
in the way described in the last chapter. Obviously the
effect will be much bigger directly under a pylon.

2 EMF Dangers
Dr. David Carpenter, Dean at the School of Public Health, State
University of New York believes it is likely that up to 30%
of all childhood cancers come from exposure to EMFs. The Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) warns "There is reason for concern" and
advises prudent avoidance".
In a draft report issued in March 1990, the EPA recommended that
EMFs be classified as a Class B carcinogen -- -a "probable human
carcinogen and joined the ranks of formaldehyde, DDT, dioxins and
After the EPA draft report was released, utility, military and computer
lobbyists came down hard on the EPA. The EPA's final revision did
NOT classify EMFs as a Class B carcinogen Rather, the following explanation
At this time such a characterization regarding the link between cancer
and exposure to EMFs is not appropriate because the basic nature
of the interaction between EMFs and biological processes leading
to cancer is not understood."

However, too many people who live in houses
under or near power ipines complain of a variety of symptoms
without apparent cause for such assurances to be accepted

In worse cases, they may feel nauseous or dizzy. The long-term
effects remain to be assessed, but when we remember the
findings of Nancy Wertheimer there appears to be at least
a possibility of a link with cancer and there is current
litigation in both Britain and the USA against power transmission
companies which, if successful, will result in enormous
damages being paid to affected families.

Penetration of Cell Phone Radiation in Children!
Last April, while corporate “news managers” were guiding
the attention of Americans elsewhere, a London newspaper reported
on “What Cell Phones Can Do To Youngster's Brain In 2 Minutes”.
It turns out that a call lasting just two minutes
can open the “blood-brain barrier” in
kids as well as adults, allowing toxins in the
bloodstream to cross this blood vessel gateway
into the skull and attack brain cells. The same
two-minutes cell phone exposure also disrupts the
natural electrical activity of a child's brain
for up to an hour afterwards.
“Leading medical experts now question whether
it is safe for children to use mobile phones at
all,” reported the Mirror. “Doctors
fear that disturbed brain activity in children
could lead to psychiatric and behavioral problems
or impair learning ability.”

Health Concern in Schools
EMF Health Report, Vol. 1, No. 1,
A number of school boards across North America have taken
actions to limit exposure of school children to EMF. These
actions, based primarily on parental concerns rather than
on demonstrated health risks, have attempted to reduce
the exposure of children to magnetic field levels which
are typical of EMF exposures for the general public.
California. "High" EMF readings have prompted educators and
administrators to take action to minimize exposure to EMFs. At the Montague
Elementary School in Santa Clara, CA, 13 of the school's 15 teachers
have formally requested to be transferred because of the school's close
proximity to power lines. In addition, 4 classrooms, a day care center,
and a part of the playground located near power lines have been closed
Before an evaluation of possible EMF-cancer associations
in southern Marin County, CA, was even completed, the Mill
Valley school district authorized up to $50,000 for new
light fixtures and wiring to reduce EMF emissions. These
expenses were approved by the school board after a district
survey showed high EMF levels. Mill Valley's Tam Valley
School took other cost-free precautions such as moving
desks away from fish tanks and relocating physical education
classes away from power lines.
New York. New York Attorney General Robert Abrams called
on the state's top seven utility companies to study EMFs
from power lines near schools in response to concern expressed
by the New York State United Teachers Union and other groups.
A study by Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation has identified
35 schools in upstate New York which are in close proximity
to high-voltage power lines.
Canada. In Toronto, Ontario, parents were successful in
a campaign to relocate a kindergarten classroom and library
at a Bennington Heights elementary school. Concerns raised
over a proposed new kindergarten play area at the south
end of the school led parents to request magnetic field
measurements of the area. The school building is on a cliff
less than 100 feet from a 115-kV transmission line at the
same height. Measurements taken at the south end of the
school indicated levels about twice the average in the
rest of the school. After a series of public meetings and
additional consultant reviews, the school board decided
to relocate classes and a library to portable units at
the north end of the school, reserving the rooms at the
south end for occasional use for meetings.
What if EMF causes Cancer???
Our exposure to electromagnetic pollution has increased many
million times in the last 30 years
All of these effects have been shown in multiple studies for cancer
and miscarriage, neurological and cardiac effects. The results
are totally consistent with EMR being genotoxic, but also interfering
with the body's natural telecommunication system. The brain is
particularly sensitive because it is very electromagnetically active
as is shown by the EEG, and the brain communicates with the organs
and the cells of the body using enzymes, hormones and ion currents
for example. More than sixteen studies show that EMR across the
spectrum reduces human melatonin levels. Melatonin is a potent
antioxidant, and maintains the health of the immune system. Reduced
melatonin is associated with aging, sleep disturbance, chronic
fatigue, arthritis, diabetes, and also with cancer, miscarriage,
cardiac and neurological disease and death.

|Reduce exposures to EMF and HF radiation
Remember that the EM field radiated from an appliance drops off dramatically
in strength with increased distance from the source. There are a number of
ways to reduce harmful exposure to EMF. Some are as easy as standing back from
an appliance when it is in use.
If the measured radiation level of a cell phone is high, consider using shielded
accessories. If the problem persists, you may want to switch to another cell
phone or service company. Cell phone radiation levels vary from phone to phone

Computer users may want to switch to flat panel display since these monitors
emit less EMF than the conventional CRT type of display.
Other EMF reduction steps, such as correcting a household-wiring problem, are
worth doing for safety reasons. The traditional way of grounding electrical devices
is to connect them to water pipes. However, today's pipes are mostly plastic
and do not provide good grounding. One suggestion is to find a pure metal pipe
and redo the wiring.
It is wise to reduce as much as possible the time spent near known sources of
strong EMF. Turn off all electrical appliances when you aren't using them.

The Commission is closely monitoring new developments

of new technologies using radio-frequencies, the Commission
asked in January 2001 the competent scientific committee

associated with the exposure to electromagnetic fields
in the light of new evidence on exposure and research on
health effects. The Committee on Toxicology, Eco-toxicology
and the Environment has adopted this opinion(56KB) on October

The NRPB (National Radiation Protection Board - UK) Advisory Group on
Non-ionising Radiation (AGNIR) headed by sir Richard Doll produced a
report titled, ELF Electromagnetic Fields and the Risk of Cancer in March
2001. The report concluded that; unless ... further research indicates
that the finding is due to chance or some currently unrecognised artefact,
the possibility remains that intense and prolonged exposures to magnetic
fields (from powerlines) can increase the risk of leukaemia in children.
The inconclusive nature of this finding is due to the low relative risk
and the lack of supporting evidence such as a
biological mechanism or dose response curve etc.
