Researchers from Duke University announced a breakthrough new device that harvests WiFi and converts it into direct current to charge batteries. The team achieved an astonishing energy conversion rate comparable to current solar panels.
Using inexpensive materials configured and tuned to capture microwave signals, researchers at Duke University's Pratt School of Engineering have designed a power-harvesting device with efficiency similar to that of modern solar panels.
The device wirelessly Read more [...]
An international team of researchers recently discovered that in some individuals, the 2.4 GHz pulsed signals emitted by a cordless phone system produce significant disruptions in cardiac rhythm.
The researchers demonstrated that 40 percent of healthy volunteers in their study showed marked increases in heart rate, arrhythmias, and other disturbances in heart rate variability following exposure to active cordless phone base stations. This is the same type of cordless phone that many people Read more [...]
Having a cordless phone in your house can be 100 times more of a health risk than using a mobile, report a group of Swedish Scientists.
The popular phones constantly blast out high levels of radiation – even when they are not in use. Landlines are widely thought a safer option than mobiles. But researchers in Sweden now warn cordless phones are far more likely to cause brain tumors than today’s mobiles.
Mobile phones today operate at about 900 megahertz, whereas some cordless DECT phones Read more [...]
In Olvera, a beautiful town of Cadiz, the Councillor for the Environment, James Steward, confirmed that the full City Council unanimously approved to declare the town a Electromagnetic Pollution-Free Municipality. Importantly, with the unanimity of the United Left party, but voted for by the Spanish Socialist Party and the Popular Party, and harnessed it has motivated different political forces, is to ensure a safe and healthy environment the villagers. We can say openly and without fear of error, Read more [...]
How long have you been using your cellphone? Using a mobile device for any length of time is damaging to some degree, but new research is shedding light on just how significant of an influence extended cellphone use has on the brain. In a newly-released study conducted at the Örebro Hospita in Sweden, it was revealed that 10 years of cellphone use resulted in an average 290% increased risk of brain tumor development. Interestingly, the tumor development was found on the side of the head in which Read more [...]
Smart meters—utility meters that use radio frequencies (RF) to report data to utility offices for billing and other purposes—may be harmful to your health.
Just ask Joe Esposito, on whose home the Public Service Company of Oklahoma slapped a smart meter despite his explicit wishes it not be installed. Shortly after installation, Esposito began to experience tooth aches, constant tingling, and aches in his leg that kept him from sleeping. After watching a video by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt called Read more [...]
Sheryl Crow says that her benign brain tumor may have been caused by cell phone use. Doctors found the tumor earlier this year after the singer, aged 50, began having difficulty remembering lyrics.
Crow reassured fans that the tumor is benign, but the latter remember her battle with breast cancer in 2006. What has puzzled many fans is that she attributes her tumor to excessive cell phone use, although no one should actually be surprised. “I [was] worried I had an early [onset] Alzheimer’s,” Read more [...]
Before microwaves were invented and first sold in 1947, we prepared foods without a microwave oven. Water was boiled on the stove. Chicken was baked in an oven. Vegetables were steamed, baked, or sautéed. Food was whole and fresh. Even a TV dinner was baked in the oven, which took about 15 minutes to warm. And then, modern science and technology brought us the microwave oven that could heat food rapidly, from 30 seconds to a couple of minutes.
The industry has claimed that microwave cooking Read more [...]
