Wireless Magic Music Video

Wireless isn't Magic 2Wireless Isn’t Magic!

Here’s a really catchy new educational song about wireless radiation,  via the ElectricSense youtube channel.

I wish I knew who “Disco Star Power” was, and where to find what else they have done, but a search did not reveal those secrets.

It reminds me of some old Brazilian psychedelic pop I used to enjoy, simple melody and music, and the singer has a beautiful soft voice.

Have a listen, and maybe learn something new too!

Electromagnetic Fields: The Chemical Connection

“In other words, though work to reduce toxic chemical exposures can be viewed as quite distinct from efforts to address EMF exposures, both EMFs and EDCs can disrupt the critical signaling systems in the body and lead to problematic health endpoints.”

Elise Miller, MEdAs you probably remember from your high school biology class, our bodies function using electrical impulses to communicate between cells, such as telling your heart muscles to contract or signaling your brain that you just stubbed your toe. Since everything relies on these signals, any breakdown or disruption in your body’s electrical system can become a real problem.

We also know that certain toxic agents, such as endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), can alter our bodies’ hormonal messaging systems (which, by the way, uses electrical signals to communicate). When exposures to these chemicals, even in tiny amounts, happen during critical windows of development, then a wide range of health problems can result over a person’s lifetime.
So what do EDCs and electromagnetic fields (EMFs) have in common? As Henry C. Lai, professor of bioengineering at the University of Washington in Seattle and an expert…

Guest Post: Personal Protection Against Electromagnetic Waves

Another danger from wireless technology,  discussed a bit here in the BioInitiative Report is that of electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) /aka electromagnetic sensitivity, or one of the many potentially disabling “sensitivities” falling under the broader term Environmental Sensitivities (ES).

As the use of wireless technology increases, more and more people around the world are becoming disabled by, or “sensitive” to electromagnetic waves, and must find ways to survive and cope in the world, since safe sanctuaries are not yet available and life of some sort must go on. Some people are discovering special materials that can be used to make protective clothing, hoods, capes etc. Note that care must be taken to keep the waves from bouncing around inside the material.

Ryozo posted this account of what he must wear to his fb page and he agreed to share it here.

He lives in Japan and has MCS and EHS. He was a teacher by profession and now works to raise awareness about these conditions whenever he is able. He is a member of the Japanese organization CACP – Citizens Against Chemicals Pollution.

My way to protect from electromagnetic waves

by Ryozo Tamakoshi

Points to keep in mind

The causes and the conditions of chemical sensitivity or electromagnetic hypersensitivity are very various. My method is not always effective for all people. Ultimately, it may be important to find your own way. Please note that metal allergy could affect ability to use these protective clothes. Summer is so hot, this way is impossible. (This is only the protection from electromagnetic waves.)

Wireless Warnings: BioInitiative Report on Electromagnetic Fields (ELF and RF)

Wireless Warnings From the BioInitiative Report:

THE BIOINITIATIVE REPORT 2012

A Rationale for Biologically-based Public Exposure Standard for Electromagnetic Fields (ELF and RF)

The updated report is now available for download and I’ve skimmed through some of it. What is clear is that there is enough evidence to be concerned, very concerned, about the exposures we are being subjected to. Current global wireless (and other) safety standards are not adequate to protect us from some pretty serious harm to our health. The report calls for immediate action in order to reduce threats to public health.

If you think there’s more than enough evidence to call for immediate precaution, then please share the link to the report with your lawmakers and legislators, and pay attention to tips you see on ways to protect yourself and your family until regulatory changes are made. And don’t be afraid to discuss this with others.

What follows are snippets I copied from parts of the report, things that stood out the most for me. They are not my words, they are copied from the report. If you want to see the actual research, download the report, it’s all in there.
