Presentation - Electrosmog Radiation - Its effects on the human VDR (and beyond)

Type: Conference presentation
Presenter: Trevor Marshall, PhD
Conference: 11th International Congress on Autoimmunity
Location: Lisbon, Portugal
Date: May, 2018


This is a presentation given at the 11th International Congress on Autoimmunity in Lisbon on 19 May 2018.

Prof Marshall discusses how EM radiation especially affects people with chronic disease, and why a Physician needs to be alert to this factor when a patient is struggling.

ELECTROSMOG RADIATION - LIKELY EFFECTS ON THE VDRThe Vitamin D Receptor. A nuclear receptor located throughout the body that plays a key role in the innate immune response.

Between 68% and 75% of European physicians have been consulted about Electromagnetic Hyper-Sensitivity (EM, EHS). Although many feel that the patient reports sound plausible, scientists have failed to provide them the guidance needed to fully understand what might be happening. Some have nevertheless come up with answers - Karolinska's Olle Johansson demonstrated that these invisible waves interfere with the human immune system, while Martin Pall found that they alter calcium metabolism. Dominique Belpomme has suggested some biomarkers he has found useful in diagnosis, and some physicians, such as California's Scott Eberle, have themselves succumbed, publicly blogging their own experiences.

The WHO has been no help, with its pronouncements dominated by industry. However, Gro Harlem Bruntland, retired General Director of the WHO, has publicly been warning about the risks of EM radiation to public health, stating that she has no doubt that humans are negatively affected by Electrosmog, “We have to hope that it doesn't turn out too seriously.”

Somewhere between 2 and 10% of the population report that they are sensitive to cellphones and WiFi.. Yet we reported last year that EHS seemed much higher in 64 volunteers from our autoimmuneA condition or disease thought to arise from an overactive immune response of the body against substances and tissues normally present in the body and chronic disease cohort than either of these numbers, with 90% reporting a definite response to the EM-shielded clothing we designed for that study. Further, we used advanced Molecular Dynamics to show that the Vitamin-D Receptor molecule, the VDR, was itself susceptible to these invisible fields, finally expounding a solid scientific mechanism for these biological interactions.

So what does an Autoimmunologist need to know? The last 3-4 years have seen an explosion in Electrosmog, due to the build-out of new 4G towers and the rapid penetration of WiFi into the home and workplace. Pediatricians are warning of potential dangers to kids, and of dangers to the unborn. But it would seem that the risk to those whose immune systems are already struggling, those with chronic and autoimmune conditions, is far greater.

Some patients have come to rely on the immunosuppression created by their gadgets, and become very ill when sleeping in a Faraday Cage (which totally blocks out the radiation, allowing the immune system to recover). As they live their lives, travelling between high and low radiation extremes, their symptoms wax and wane regardless of any therapy they are receiving.

We will discuss some of the options available to help mitigate these symptom surges, and explore how Autoimmunology might well be fundamentally changed by the advent of Electrosmog.
