*New* Youtube interview with Dr. Alvaro de Salles on cell phone risks
From Don Maisch, editor of EMFacts Consultancy, posted on April 19, 2010
“I have just viewed Dr. Alvaro Almeida de Salles’ 38 minute video interview (September 2009) on Youtube and it is a must-see for clearly explaining the risks of cell phone and WiFi technology. Dr. de Salles explains how the cell phone industry has suppressed the dangers while secretly taking out patents on directional antennas that could significantly reduce cell phone radiation exposure for the user. There’s also advice on how you can reduce the risks/children’s use of cell phones/WiFi dangers, and much more!”

*New* Youtube video: DECT (cordless phone) signals affect the heart
From EMFacts Consultancy, posted on March 24, 2010
From Magda Havas: “Please watch this 7-minute video on youtube that I made yesterday.
“It provides unequivocal evidence that the radiation from a cordless (DECT) phone interferes with the heart. This video provides evidence that electrohypersensitivity is real, is physical, and may be life threatening.
“It also shows that non-thermal exposure, at levels well below federal guidelines in most countries (0.3% of the 1000 microW/cm2), has biological and health effects.”

Australian Broadcasting Company (ABC) video: Scientists speak out on mobile phone, cancer link
A 19 minute video clip from the ABC program, “Lateline,” aired in Australia on April 2, 2009.
This groundbreaking news segment on a major worldwide network presents the mounting evidence that long term cell phone use, ten years and more in duration, has been shown to cause a higher risk of brain cancer, particularly among children.
This is a major expose pitting statements from admittedly industry-related researchers with statements from those who are independent and “outside” the support of industry.
You can watch the full video clip in Windows Media Player or Real Player from a link on the Lateline website by clicking here. You can also read a transcript of the show on the same page.

Shows on cell phone radiation are all over the TV news

Electromagnetic Health
This website is a resource for articles, video and audio clips of interviews with experts on the health effects of use of cell phone and other wireless technologies.
From the website, “We represent citizens concerned about the proliferation of wireless technologies and their impact on health.
“We represent citizens who want our government to set exposure standards for electromagnetic radiation that are biologically based, instead of being based on long since invalidated thermal standards.
“We represent the growing percentage of the population that has become electrically sensitive– people who are finding it increasingly difficult to cope in wireless environments. The benefits of modern life, including the ability to participate in society, and hold jobs in traditional office buildings, are increasingly not available to an estimated 3-8% of Americans today.
“And, we represent the people who want rights of state and local governments to establish healthy environments in their communities returned–rights that were taken away in the Telecommunications Act of 1996, which tied the hands of local governments, preventing them from resisting towers and antennas in their communities on health or environmental grounds–even when harm became clear.”

Purchase Cell Phone Radiation Shielding and Reduction Devices from the Following Retailers
(some websites also contain research citations):

Less EMF
A resource for information on and products for detecting and shielding electric, magnetic, and radio frequency fields, including air tube earphones and “snap beads,” which are small ferrite beads that close around the wire of your earphone like a clam shell. We recommend you get two and place one near the bottom of the cord where it plugs into the phone and place the second one about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way up the wire. This reduces exposure to the radiation picked up by the cord through resonance from the signal being broadcast from the antenna of your cell phone as well as from other cell phones and cell towers in your neighborhood.
If your cell phone does not work with the air tube ear phone, even with an adapter, then use the wired earphone supplied by your cell phone manufacturer and place snap beads on the wire as described above. Do whatever you can to get the cell phone away from your body (don’t put it in your pocket when you are on a call). Also, we don’t recommend using a Bluetooth, as this creates more cumulative exposure to harmful information-carrying radio waves, which have no safe exposure limit;

Safe Wireless Initiative
Former website for Dr. George L. Carlo, Former Chairman and Founder of the Science and Public Policy Institute in Washington, DC.
Dr. Carlo is one of the leading researchers on the health risks of exposure to wireless technologies and information-carrying radio frequencies.
His website is no longer active but when it was, it contained several intervention steps to help protect against the harmful influence of wireless devices. We have obtained a copy of his former website through archive.org.
Dr. Carlos provides a “Medical Alert: Aggravated Symptom Relapses Reported after Use of Widely-Available EMR Protection Products,” dated June 17, 2008. He provides reasons why he discovered that so-called EMF-reduction chips, while reportedly helpful for some, had caused “serious symptom relapses” and a worsening of symptoms in those who had noticed initial improvement. Click here to view his medical advisory.

Dr. Carlo also provides “Interventions to Maximize Health and Minimize EMR Risks Recommendations from the Safe Wireless Initiative” to combat the ill effects of exposure to cellphones and other wireless communication devices. Click here to view the list of these interventions.

Note about safe use of cell phones in cars: When I am in my car, I use a hands-free option with an air tube ear phone plugged into my cell phone. There is still a problem, however, from frequencies coming from the cell phone broadcast signal when I am on a call. This occurs because some of the transmitted signal from the onboard antenna inside the cell phone is reflected back inside the car by the sheet metal surrounding you. This causes a concentration of power to higher levels than if you were talking on the cell phone outside your car.

Furthermore, the cell tower senses that the signal has weakened when you make your call from inside the car. This happens because of this reflection, which keeps part of the broadcast signal that is coming from your cell phone inside the car. As a result, the tower sends an instruction to the cell phone to increase its transmitted power output. You stay better connected to the tower but your body absorbs more radiation. (Also the cell phone battery goes down faster.

To reduce the ill effects of the cell phone antenna transmitting inside my car, I plug an external antenna cord into a jack on the back of my cell phone. The external antenna sits on top of my car, held in place by an earth magnetic base. The antenna is positioned right over my head because there is a “dead spot” directly under the antenna. Also, since the antenna is located outside the car above a metal sheet (the roof of the car), I am protected underneath that metal sheet. I am also below what is called the “ground plane” of the external antenna above me.

Finally, when I plug the external antenna cord into the back of my cell phone, this disables and shuts off the on-board antenna inside the cell phone so I am not broadcasting from inside the car. I had to purchase a refurbished cell phone to get an external antenna jack because newer models do not have them.

The comments below are not legal advice and are not written by lawyers. In all legal matters consult your attorney.

WARNING: Opposition to your utility company’s unlawful and harmful policies may result in denial of service and/or “penalty” fees on your bills. We recommend taking agressive legal actions against any utility company officials who maintain policies promoting those injustices. Installation of radiation-emitting surveillance devices on private property without disclosure and without consent of the occupants are crimes. Also, thousands of house fires have been caused by the installation of “advanced” digital electric meters.

1) If you have a digital electric, gas or water meter, make sure you have sent in a legal notice and replied to all their written and verbal communications with a denial of consent for trespass with radiation and surveillance. (Free download of legal notices at freedomtaker.com, scroll down and look in right column). With that notice you are rightfully demanding a safe and lawful ANALOG meter with NO DIGITAL COMPONENTS OF ANY KIND.

2) After allowing a few days or weeks for the utility company to provide a safe and lawful analog meter, edit, print and send a Notice of Default (see free download referred to above) to the utility company CEO along with a copy of your original notice. In other words, keep your legal options open even if you can’t do anything else now. Then, at any time in the future you can bring suit or you may hear of a class action suit you can join without cost. If you send the Legal Notices you will have maintained your standing for legal action and reward in the future.

3) Do not indicate at any time that you are “not up for the fight” or “too tired to fight”. Present yourself as resisting, actively prohibiting the trespass and defending your rights with your full determination and resources. In law, any statement or indication that you are not fighting can be taken as your agreement with all terms and conditions imposed upon you.

4) If possible NEVER agree to any “opt-out” contract. Those are extortion, requiring you to pay to not be harmed. THEN THEY HARM YOU ANYWAY with a “Trojan Horse” meter. To defend your health, safety, privacy and property rights against utility company assault you must serve notice and then YOU MUST MAKE ALL POLICY regarding entry and installations on your property. That means YOUR RULES, NOT THEIRS. This is more important than it seems. Utility companies are not police, they are guests on your property. When you agree to any unfair or unlawful violation you are agreeing to ALL violations. You LOSE ALL PROTECTION when you give up any protection because the utility company uses that as indication of your willingness to be criminally violated. Criminals may violate you and commit crimes against you IF YOU AGREE to such violations. When your opposition to violation is unclear, like in a utility easement, YOU MUST SERVE NOTICE and clarify your terms or you are presumed agreeable to ALL abuse and larceny. We recommend the free legal notice download to EVERY utility customer. (Free download at freedomtaker.com, scroll down and look in right column).

5) Do not compromise with anyone at the utility company and do not engage any verbal communications with them. As you’ll see in the instructions with the legal notice download, to protect yourself you must keep all communications in writing and always with the CEO with a cc copy to anyone else who may be concerned. NEVER enter a negotiation or argument with an employee or manager. They do not have the authority to make accommodation with your terms. They don’t even have the option to obey the law without getting fired for violating company policy. Remember, company policy is ILLEGAL when it requires trespass and non-consensual radiation and surveillance on your property. Employees, by taking their paychecks, ARE AGREEING to be complicit in all crimes and harm to you caused by company policy (yes, name all complicit employees personally and individually in your legal actions).

6) If you decide to send extortion payments for “opting out”, (We strongly recommend you never do that), make sure that you write on the check “involuntary and coerced payment under duress”. Also make sure you send a notice to the CEO declaring that your payments and cooperation are under duress, coerced and involuntary. Keep certified mail receipts and copies of those notices. Without that your payment is AGREEMENT to be criminally violated and you may lose standing for legal actions in the future.

7) If you have a digital electric meter, shut off your breakers when you sleep, especially the breakers that run lines to or through the bedroom. Get a wind-up or battery powered alarm clock.

8) If you install shielding, make sure it is BETWEEN THE EMF SOURCE AND THE PEOPLE and verify the effect with scanning meters (above). Improper shielding and/or grounding can actually make exposures WORSE. Shielding is risky and difficult to do effectively. It will not help you at all to simply prevent their transmitters from sending data. You are agreeing to let them do that by permitting the equipment on your property. By defeating the equipment with shielding you are in violation for “tampering” with equipment you have accepted under your utility company easement.

9) Ground your shielding material. If you are not sure about this, check with an electrician.

10) Purchase some scanning meters to regularly scan your environment and verify your exposures (available above). Find ways to reduce the exposures.

11) Minimize your use of cell phones, maximize their distance from your body at all times and DO NOT bring them or the chargers into the bedroom.

12) Get rid of every chordless phone (use hard-wired phones), microwave oven, and other wireless device in your home. Look carefully, sometimes we forget that certain devices have wireless components. More and more appliances will have those wireless transmitters hidden inside in the future. Without scanning meters (above) you cannot detect those hidden devices.

13) Turn off and remove every wi-fi device in your home. Use direct wired ethernet connections and routers for your internet connections. Turn off wi-fi on your laptop.

14) Remove all dimmer switches and replace them with binary (on/off) switches.

15) Keep your body away from transformers, motors, chargers, electrical wiring in the walls and in the room, power strips and electrical devices. Get these things away from places where you spend time like your desk.

16) Avoid being physically in wi-fi fileds as much as possible (commercial locations are flooded with them). Children are especially vulnerable to harm from wi-fi. Wi-fi has now been banned from schools in many locations. Emotional and behavioral problems (ADD, ADHD) and childhood leukemia are directly and uniformly associated with those exposures.

17) NEVER permit your child to sit for prolonged periods in wi-fi fields. If your school has wi-fi, demand that it be turned off or remove your child on the basis of intentional criminal assault and take legal actions against the faculty. File criminal complaints with the police, the school board and the District Attorney. Many countries (France), states (Vermont), cities, counties and school districts have now banned wi-fi in schools for very good reason. United States restrictions on EMF exposures are far less stringent than most of the developed world including the more totalitarian regimes like China and Russia. This is due to excess corporate influence on U.S. lawmakers and it is based on pure corruption exactly as was seen with the protracted failures by public officials to protect the public from asbestos, lead, DDT and tobacco. Children consistently suffer behavioral problems and serious diseases when exposed to EMF.

18) Check the area around your home and workplace for any transmitters for cell phone service or other civic communications. These are sometimes hidden and hard to spot. Theyt are even disguised as building tops and trees. They may be mounted on any pole, building or other structure. They have different sizes and shapes, but usually there is a small “stick” antenna or dish and a power supply in some kind of box. If there are any of those near your house you may need to use EMF scanning meters to check for EMF amplitudes at your living spaces. You may wish to file a complaint and request relocation or redirection of the transmitter. If a transmitter has been pointed at your home without disclosure and/or without your consent you are entitled to compensation for damages, trespass and risk to health.

19) Check for overhead high-voltage wires and, if any are nearby, use a scanning meter to verify exposures. A general rule is to be at least three times as far from the wires as they are off the ground. If high-voltage lines are near your house you may want to consider moving, it is almost impossible to shield large nearby sources of EMF like that, and they DO cause cancer and other life-threatening ailments after prolonged exposure.
