-<​blockquote>​Human beings are bioelectrical systems. Our hearts and brains are regulated by internal bioelectrical signals. Environmental exposures to artificial EMFs can interact with fundamental biological processes in the human body. In some cases, this may cause discomfort, or sleep disruption, or loss of wellbeing (impaired mental functioning and impaired metabolism) or sometimes, maybe it is a dread disease like cancer or Alzheimer’s disease.

-“I have been reading the literature from the first half of the 20th century and the mechanisms for EMF damage are well-documented,​ but just ignored. Frohlich pointed out that the human eye is capable of detecting just one photon of non-ionizing radiation, for example. Photosynthesis is similarly a very sensitive molecular process. ​

-(({{pubmed>​long:​26300312}})) 
-<​blockquote>​Non-thermal microwave/​lower frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs) act via voltage-gated calcium channel (VGCC) activation. Calcium channel blockers block EMF effects and several types of additional evidence confirm this mechanism. Low intensity microwave EMFs have been proposed to produce neuropsychiatric effects, sometimes called microwave syndrome, and the focus of this review is whether these are indeed well documented and consistent with the known mechanism(s) of action of such EMFs. VGCCs occur in very high densities throughout the nervous system and have near universal roles in release of neurotransmitters and neuroendocrine hormones 
-</​blockquote>​ 
-<​blockquote>​ Among the more commonly reported changes are sleep disturbance/​insomnia,​ headache, depression/​depressive symptoms, fatigue/​tiredness,​ dysesthesia,​ concentration/​attention dysfunction,​ memory changes, dizziness, irritability,​ loss of appetite/​body weight, restlessness/​anxiety,​ nausea, skin burning/​tingling/​dermographism and EEG changes. In summary, then, the mechanism of action of microwave EMFs, the role of the VGCCs in the brain, the impact of non-thermal EMFs on the brain, extensive epidemiological studies performed over the past 50 years, and five criteria testing for causality, all collectively show that various non-thermal microwave EMF exposures produce diverse neuropsychiatric effects.

-===== Biological activity ===== 
- 
- ​Abstract [[http://​www.tandfonline.com/​doi/​abs/​10.3109/​15368378.2015.1043557|biological activity of low-intensity R F radiation]] 
- 
-Analysis of the currently available peer-reviewed scientific literature reveals molecular effects induced by low-intensity RFR in living cells; this includes significant activation of key pathways generating reactive oxygen species (ROS), activation of peroxidation,​ oxidative damage of DNA and changes in the activity of antioxidant enzymes. It indicates that among 100 currently available peer-reviewed studies dealing with oxidative effects of low-intensity RFR, in general, 93 confirmed that RFR induces oxidative effects in biological systems. A wide pathogenic potential of the induced ROS and their involvement in cell signaling pathways explains a range of biological/​health effects of low-intensity RFR, which include both cancer and non-cancer pathologies.

-On the basis of two decades of epidemiological studies, an increased risk for childhood leukemia associated with Extremely Low Frequency fields has been consistently assessed, inducing the International Agency for Research on Cancer to insert them in the 2B section of carcinogens in 2001.

-//Dr Andrew PT Tresidder,// ​ [[http://​www.bmj.com/​content/​351/​bmj.h4098/​rr-17|Should NHS premises provide free access to wi-fi?]] 
- 
-<​blockquote>​Affected people experience symptoms from exposure to RF transmissions,​ which include headaches, brain fog, inability to think clearly, speech disturbance,​ palpitations,​ sleep disturbance,​ epistaxis, fatigue, dizziness, vertigo, odd pains and tinglings in limbs - and interestingly ants exposed to wifi lose their ability to forage and die, amongst other creatures affected by non-thermal effects. Prevalence in the population is estimated at 3-5%, mainly undiagnosed. 
- 
-Unfortunately,​ there is a common misperception that this is due to a nocebo effect - but the sham used in some trials was actually biologically active. CFS/ME and the Gulf War syndrome were both initially thought to be psychological disturbances by some investigators,​ since disproved. 
- 
-The Austrian Medical Association has published guidelines on the topic [[http://​electromagnetichealth.org/​wp-content/​uploads/​2012/​04/​EMF-Guidelin...|EMF guidelines (Austria)]] 
- 
-It is unfortunate that transmitting technology is so useful, and so widespread - because this leads us all to believe that it cannot be harmful. However, in the insurance industry Lloyds of London have withdrawn health liability cover for wifi routers. 
- 
-Current UK safety limits for RF are based upon the flawed misapprehension that non-thermal = non-harmful,​ and at present there are no plans to review this. Basically, if it doesn’t start to cook you in six minutes, it’s safe….. 
- 
-It has been known for well over 30 years that there are non-thermal (signal) effects of RF. Russian and other safety limits are much lower than UK. Non-thermal biological effects of exposure to RF (microwave) signal include increased permeability of the blood-brain barrier, failure of repair of DNA breaks, heat shock protein synthesis, cellular calcium efflux, sympathetic upregulation and others. RF is currently classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer as a Class 2b possible carcinogen. Other research shows adverse effects on semen quality amongst other biological effects. 
- 
-History tells us that technological advance ALWAYS precedes safety considerations in all industries (see use of car safety belts, Xrays and asbestos for example), and the rollout of 24 hour transmitting wifi, cordless phones, and other technology has been on the presumption of no harm.</​blockquote>​

-The reason was that it seemed to indicate that for RA, there is no safe manmade RF EMF level as RF signal strength from these solar storms is really low. Further, these storms are brief, so my thinking was that it wasn't actually the storms, but the state of the sun where the solar cycle RF signal was at its highest. In other words, natural background RF when it cycles higher correlates with RA, and that level is so many orders of magnitude lower than manmade RF.

-Are the following good guidelines for cell phone use? Does anyone have any comments? 
- 
-1. Never carry a cell phone on your person or in your pocket. Always have it in a separate bag. 
- 
-2. Keep cell phone in airplane mode except when actually being used. 
- 
-3. Never use a cell phone when a landline is available. 
- 
-4. Do not use a cell phone as a primary method of communication. Give out your land line number and not your cell phone number for incoming calls to minimize the number of calls to the cell phone. 
- 
-5. Do not use the cell phone for any purpose other than making emergency calls. 
- 
-6. Always wear a protective clothing device over your head when using a cell phone. ​

-“My colleagues and I since then, some of whom have worked at the World Health Organisation with me in the past, have just published an article saying mobile phone radiation is a probable human carcinogen with newer studies showing that people who begin to use cell phones regularly and heavily as teenagers have four to eight times more malignant glioma — that’s a brain tumour — 10 years later,” the US cancer epidemiologist says in the program. “The Interphone study was carried out from 2000-2004. 
- 
-“The results were supposed to be released in 2005. It took five years to release the results of the Interphone study, and it was not because the science wasn’t clear, it was because of the intense politics that took place between members of the team, some of whom had been heavily sponsored by industry, and others of whom were more independent. 
- 
-“The bulk of the study said the results were inconclusive. The actual findings, in technical appendix 2, showed there was a significantly increased risk of brain cancer in the heaviest users.”

-<​blockquote>​ 
-As far as the brain goes, the skull cavity is resonant between 1GHz and 3.5GHz. I once saw an attenuation vs frequency curve (for TEM) which showed attenuation through the brain rising rapidly beyond 3.5Ghz, and falling below 1GHz, but you can calculate the structure size to anticipate something going on there. 
- 
-As the frequency drops it is hard for the body to intercept so much signal as at microwaves. TV and FM are still a problem, but a different problem. AM? Well, the amplitudes are so high around a 50,000 watt transmitter... 
- 
-I am sure that peak pulse amplitude is important, as well as a continuous nature for the pulses, so as to reduce the ability of our body's signaling to squeeze a signal in between the pulses. ​ 
-  
-The body's sensitivity changes as the IP is dealt with. 
- 
- 
-The analysis is simple for an RF engineer. You have the shape, roughly spherical, and you have the size, roughly 1 wavelength at 2.4 GHz, and you have a dielectric constant for the brain. This has been worked on before by the radar people, decades ago, who concluded that the frequencies currently used by 3G, 4G and WiFi were too dangerous to be used for Radar :)

-Mike, 
-I am hoping that the sleeping caps provide enough protection to trigger symptoms in most who are sensitive. '​Felling something'​ is key to beginning a personal ​ understanding,​ IMO. 
- 
-I do think the '​winter hats' will protect pretty well. Just on case I need extra protection, I carry my '​sleeping hat' in my pocket when traveling (the new lightweight #78 fabric is really compact). ​ 
- 
-What I am seeing is that sleep is key. I am interested in replicating your sleeping bag in the heavier (stronger) fabrics. I am exploring an idea similar to wearing a sleeping cap, a hoodie over the top of the cap and protecting the upper body, and a bag protecting the torso and legs. We have to find something that is rugged, as well as effective, and I think that would do the job. Now to find a seamstress that can design and sew a good comfortable sleeping-hoodie together :) 
- 
-..Trevor.. 
-ps: I think the reason you needed gaps in your clothing was because the IP really ramps up as the shielding becomes more effective. We have now put Aluminum on the other end of our attic space, and the lowered levels, even in the bedroom (currently below -70dBm) really causes an IP spike. It is all quite amazing, really... I built an amplifier to boost signals in front of the Cornet, and am reading down to about -80dBm now.

-The body's response to low levels of RF seems to occur in steps. As we quieten our environment,​ the immune sensitivity increases down to below -90dBm (the value on my slides in St Petersburg). There may be steps below this, I don't know yet. But I am getting firmer in setting -65dBm (on a Cornet) as the target level below which the immune system first starts to reactivate... 
- 
-What I think is happening to the Biology is that any level of environmental RF above about -80dBm (measured at your brain) incrementally shuts down parts of your immune system. By the time you get to -60dBm that immune capability is fully shut down. Then there is no further change until about -35dBm, where the immediate, disorienting,​ effects start to occur.

-The reason that Science has found it difficult to measure any specific threshold at which Biology becomes affected by microwave radiation is that there is no real '​threshold'​. Damage begins at the very low levels near Boltzmann thermal noise - lower than we can easily measure - and the interference with protein and molecular interactions increases as the photon flux increases (as the field strength increases). At an Electrosmog level equal to the Bioinitiative 2012 recommendation of -47dBm, a flux of around 5 million microwave photons is passing through our bodies. ​ Each microwave photon only carries an energy of a few micro electron Volts (ueV), but cumulatively they have enough energy to upset nearly all human metabolism. ​ 
- 
-Human proteins are resonant, this paper shows that this resonance is what is most easily disturbed by the microwave photon flux. This resonance explains why certain types of signals with fast-varying frequency content (such as pulsed 4G signals) are more disruptive than continuous wave signals. This is why the therapeutic microwave medical devices (from Eastern Europe) often use a noise-based millimetre signal source rather than continuous waves. ​ Our CWS uses continuous waves. Maybe that is why it seems to be not so immune-disruptive,​ with primarily a neurological impact?

-EM energy is proportional to frequency. Is this true for the bioeffect as well? I think the answer is probably '​yes'​. FM and TV were present for decades without the really dangerous ​ surges in chronic disease which we have seen in recent decades. 
- 
-If we adjust just for the frequency component of EM energy, then 10log(f1/​f2) would be the most likely factor (IMO). So an FM radio signal at 100MHz would require 14dB extra signal strength to be the same energy as WiFi at 2450MHz, for example. 
- 
-So if -65dBm is your WiFi bio-sensitivity threshold, -51dBm would be the FM radio threshold. A station at -58dBm should not present a major problem. 
- 
-Please tell me if I am wrong, based on your own personal observations of bioeffect :)

-Based on my model for "​moving charges=waves"​ both the instantaneous exposure, and the accumulated exposure, do harm to the body's proteins. You should seek to minimize both. 
- 
-Human proteins are continuously in motion. Hydrogen bonds articulate particularly energetic motions, in the picosecond time range. The count of hydrogen bonds in a typical protein varies as a function of time, with '​resonance'​ down to the GHz microwave range. Moving charges give rise to waves. The principle of reciprocity says that moving charges will be responsive to waves they create. The only issues under dispute are what sensitivity is the response to external waves, and how do waves reach the molecules inside a human body. Since the motions of hydrogen bonds are underdamped,​ the sensitivity is likely high.

-'​Healthy'​ people (40% of the population) really don't notice any effect at amplitudes below -20dBm. There are slips in cognition, balance, etc, but until the level gets really high their bodies can repair the damage pretty quickly. Those who have mild disease cannot correlate the additional symptoms with the presence of the waves, but they are being affected. There is a heck of a lot of Ambien being prescribed at the moment :) Obesity is epidemic. The elderly have balance troubles. 
- 
-Now does it affect '​healthy'​ folk (and especially children) nevertheless?​ Yes, I think so. If we look at the rising incidence of chronic disease these past 60 years it is tough to tie the steady increase with any one factor - antibiotic use, for example, vaccine use, nothing really jumps out of the timeline except a steadily increasing influence of something since TV and FM started in the 1950'​s. ​ Take a look at this 2004 study and see what you think

-No, I see that the body is just trying to survive while its metabolism is being attacked by the radiation. It is a very simple problem -- by their very nature (being underdamped) proteins can easily be diverted from what they were doing by stray electromagnetic fields.

-==== Patients'​ experiences ==== 
- 
-<​blockquote>//​Marysue // I've been experiencing problems with walking as you have described--and have also wondered how much of it is RF and how much of it is stimulation of IP from the exercise itself. ​ 
-Years ago I noticed that I was able to walk farther and had less severe reactivity if I walked inside a mall or large building rather than outside in a neighborhood. I always thought it was due to the indoor regulated temperature (which certainly helped) and reduced light/sun exposure, but now I think the shielding effect of concrete block was an important benefit. 
- 
-In our current environment,​ that is no longer beneficial due to wifi/​cellphone/​computers inside the buildings. I can't walk anymore in most neighborhoods due to the increased RF/wifi smog.  
- 
-Shielding with garments is certainly a big help, but the internal stimulation of body systems from the exercise is still too much for me. Recently I started wearing professional grade hearing protection while walking. I originally did it because of the noise of mowers and tractors, but then I noticed that I was able to walk farther with less reactivity if I wore them even when there was no "​audible noise"​. ​ 
- 
-There is still a threshold that I can't go beyond without negative repercussions,​ but I am able to recover more quickly with the 1-1.5 mile distances I typically walk here on the farm. My experience is that the additional auditory shielding allows the nervous system/​brain to focus on it's own internal processes more easily without distraction or stress from external signals processed by the auditory cortex (which includes RF signals).
