present, the electro smog created by people is a significant threat to public
This statement did not come from a mobile
telephone activist's lips, it came from an official document from the European
Parliament dated March 2001. Through the recognized biophysicist Dr. Gerard
Hyland of the University of Warwick (UK), the general direction of science
identifies the health risks that modern mobile telecommunications presents and
names specific requirements for protecting the population.
The legal limit (SAR value) is unsuitable
for assessing the biological effectiveness of protective measures. This limit,
also valid in Germany,
takes only the heating of tissue by mobile radio waves (thermal effects) into
account. It disregards interactions with the human organism, the physical
functions of which are based on complex electromagnetic mechanisms.
The report, formulated as a recommendation
to the European Commission, demands immediate research and development on
suitable means of protection against non-thermal effects. That means protecting
the population against health consequences that, as is well known, are not
caused by the heating of tissue. Furthermore, it insists that the effectiveness
of protection methods and guidelines be finally tested with living people, and
no longer on dead physical models, which in no way represent the biological
interactive reactions of a living person.
Today, we have come to a stage of expansion
in mobile telephone technology that no-one can run from any longer. The rapid
pace at which new radio technologies at new frequencies are being brought out
onto the market every day in all areas of life is set by what is technically
feasible - not by what is healthy. Because the human body literally has
"nowhere to hide" from this electromagnetic pollution, it now
concerns absolutely everybody, independent of age, sex or income.
Knowledge of non-thermal effects and sensible protection
against them are now the central health challenges of the 21st
An entire discipline has been created to protect against
electronic and mobile telecommunications radiation
official scientific demonstration of the effects of mobile telecommunications
technologies on people and the facts used on a daily basis diverged far from
each other a long time ago. An entire discipline is now focused on shielding
and suppressing radio interference in buildings, apartments, domiciles and
population and in ever more companies, the understanding of the effects of
electronic and mobile telecommunications radiation on health is noticeably
increasing. Large corporate groups are decreeing their own limits due to
disturbances to employees; specialized congresses put on by renowned organic
architects are concentrating on the matter as hard as manufacturers of building
materials or prefabricated houses are.

discipline is conducting its own research and is constantly enhancing its means
of protection. Local media are reporting more strongly on electro smog's impact
on health. The Süddeutsche Zeitung
reported on January 28, 2004
that the world's two largest insurance brokers, Marsh and Aon, as well as
Allianz have excluded the risk of electro smog produced by mobile phones and
mobile radio devices from their policies.
these developments, which have now become an economic factor that must be taken
seriously, do not officially exist for predominant scientists or for
legislators. It is almost a schizophrenic situation.
discipline has so far focused primarily on reducing the energy (i.e. the SAR
value), in recent times, the demands made in the European Parliament's
recommendation letter are being tackled with ever more force: the development
of means of protection against non-thermal effects. They are based on quantum
physics, which is still only rarely applied, the most renowned application
is the matured realization that simply reducing the energy (the legal SAR
value) does not provide biological protection. Among other things, non-thermal
effects come from the interplay of frequencies, the significance of the
magnetic fields surrounding us for our bodies and the physical properties of
waves that are, as a rule, unknown to classically educated physicists and
engineers. Because we have not technically used these technical properties so
far, they are not included in the syllabuses of universities. top
Dutch state UMTS study shows: tinnitus, headaches and nausea at one five-thousandth of the legal limit
Many elaborate studies
have recently proven these non-thermal effects beyond a doubt - yet,
they are hardly known to the public. How severely these effects arise
even at a practically non-existent energy level was shown last year in
the UMTS study conducted in Holland. The three ministries for
economics, health and telecommunications ordered this comprehensive
double-blind study from the recognized TNO Institute in response to
great misgivings among the Dutch population.
placebo-controlled (i.e. including ineffective "placebos") double-blind
studies are the most scientifically recognized form of testing effects.
In these studies, neither the investigators nor the test subjects know
in each case whether they are actually being subject to radiation or
In the Dutch study,
there were additionally two test groups of 36 people each studied
separately according to people who considered themselves
electro-sensitive and those without such symptoms. As dictated by the
legal limit, absolutely no reaction should arise in people at one
five-thousandth of the limit value (0.08 Milliwatts/kg body tissues),
since warming of the skin is no longer measurable.
In fact, at this low
dosage, significant cases of tinnitus (ear squealing), headaches and
nausea appeared in both test groups. According to the doctrine of the
official legal limit and the philosophy that much energy - i.e. much
skin heating - causes much damage, and therefore low energy - i.e.
little or no skin heating - causes little or no damage, these results
cannot be explained. top
EU REFLEX Study: with decreasing SAR values, increasing DNA double-strand disruption
Also worth special mention is the REFLEX double-blind
study sponsored by the EU, Switzerland, Finland and the VERUM
Foundation and conducted by 12 research groups in 7 European countries.
It was presented in August 2003, after 43 months duration, and also
shows the inapplicability of the legal SAR limit. The behavior of DNA
under irradiation of typical frequencies in use, such as those used by
the E-net and cordless telephones, was examined.
The DNA stores our inherited traits
in two parallel strands. Every time a cell divides, the strands
separate, complete themselves and thus duplicate. This process must
occur with the least number of errors as possible for no genetic error
to occur. Everyday radiation doses within the legal limit lead to a
strong increase in multiple breaks in both DNA strands.
An important result from the study:
as the energy decreases - that is, at smaller and smaller SAR values -
the genetic errors increased within a certain range - and did not
decrease as expected! Low SAR values lead to increased errors in the
genetic code and to the formation of additional cell nuclei that in
fact should not exist at all. Instead of two nuclei, three or more cell
nuclei suddenly appeared. The results are genetic errors in cell
division with the all too familiar consequences.
According to the theory behind the official legal limit, these results should not exist at all top
What physical parameters must effective means of protection influence?
The results show us that biologically effective means
of protection may not be limited to simply reducing the energy. They
must return those parameters, to which the human being is reacting
incorrectly due to the technical change in the electromagnetic
environment, back into the natural range.
The most important parameters are
the electromagnetic impulse of a wave and the form of the magnetic
field exerted around us. From the magnetic field, the body's brain
receives uninterrupted control signals, upon which it interprets and,
for example, regulates its metabolism. It is well known, for example,
that the DNA itself receives and sends magnetic signals from and to the
Only last year could it be proven,
in the world-renowned Caltech University (California Institute of
Technology), that our brain is a high-power magnetic receiver. Alone
every gram of brain membrane holds 100 million magnetite crystals.
These crystals are around one million times more magnetic than any
other biological material. Technologically produced electrical and
mobile telecommunications radiation disturbs the natural form of the
magnetic field surrounding us and the body receives incorrect signals
right down to the cell level.
The properties of the
electromagnetic pulse have been known ever since the discovery of the
physical basics by James Clerk Maxwell. However, because we do not use
this parameter in technology, only very few engineers and physicists
are trained in this discipline. With technologically produced waves, as
a rule, the electromagnetic pulse has such a nature that impairs
important electromagnetic processes in our body - and can in fact turn
them right around.
Only last year did the two Americans
Peter Agre and Roderick McKinnon receive the Nobel prize for chemistry,
because they could demonstrate for the first time the mechanisms with
which water and ions can penetrate into a cell. Undisturbed transport
is only possible if the electromagnetic impulse is in the right
of the scientific insights: only beyond the SAR value does the actual
protection against electronic and mobile telecommunications radiation
and public studies themselves demonstrate the biological
ineffectiveness of the legal limit and the SAR value. Sensible
biological protection against the disturbing effects of electromagnetic
fields and waves can only be provided on the basis of quantum physical
means of protection. This was already recommended in an official
document from the European Parliament back in 2001.
is working together with leading scientists on an international level
and is providing its customers with the first suitable methods for
measuring non-thermal effects beyond the SAR value.
there is no longer any excuse to downgrade new protective technology as
humbug simply because the physical and biological basics are
unfamiliar. Much more importantly, we must now all ask ourselves what
contribution we can make so that the current adult and growing
generations - our children - can use modern technology, untroubled and
without suffering long-term health impairment.
