The world’s health communities look to WHO for guidance. When WHO comes out with an acknowledgement of an issue it gives a lot of credibility to it. Until now WHO hasn’t been willing to state that there are any negative effects from Cell phones or EMF, they Had been saying that there just wasn’t enough evidence. They have now reversed that and said there is a preponderance of evidence that cell phones are very possibly cancerous and we should take precautions. They have further gone on to state
“Between 3 and 6% of the world's population is ill from electromagnetic sensitivity, but these numbers are growing continuously and upwards of 30% are affected and don't even know it.”

“I seem to have weathered a 10-hour time change with a minimum of jet lag in both directions. While I am getting a lot less sleep per night, my energy has not flagged. My thinking is clear, and calm, not irritable. During the last 2 months I have been closely exposed to many people who have had colds and flu. In spite of being extremely busy, in spite of having taken a grueling trip to Israel and back, and in spite of having to endure a difficult and stressful home life, I have not had one day of illness since wearing the Shield. I am flabbergasted!”
