Study Proves Cordless Phones and Routers Affect the Heart

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 [...]

Cordless Phones 100x More of a Health Risk than a Mobile Phone

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 [...]

Study: 290 Percent Increased Risk of Brain Tumor After 10 Years of Cellphone Use

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 the cellphone was most used. It’s important Read more [...]

‘Smart’ Utility Meters Causing Sleep Trouble, Headaches, Heart Problems

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 Attributes Brain Tumor to Cell Phone Use

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 [...]

Studies Show Microwaves Drastically Reduce Nutrients In Food

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 [...]

Study: Cell Phone Exposure causes Brain Damage in Rats

A study published in the online edition of the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP) found for the first time that electromagnetic fields (EMFs) emitted by certain mobile phones damaged neurons in the brains of rats. The researchers studied 12 to 26 week-old rats because their developmental age is comparable to that of human teenagers, who are some of the heaviest users of mobile phones. "The situation of the growing brain might deserve special concern," the study authors Read more [...]

Wind Turbines Damaging to Health

Windmills may be an environmentally friendly alternative energy source but they also cause debilitating health problems, say people who live near them. Wind turbines are popping up in rural communities around the world, including Canada, in the hope that they will reduce reliance on coal and other sources for power. Currently, there are about 1,500 turbines across Canada and there are plans to build another 1,000 to 1,500 in the next year. But some residents who live near wind farms complain Read more [...]
