California has released guidelines to reduce or avoid harmful cellphone radiation. There is reason to be concerned about the long-term health issues of cell phones and other sources of EMF radiation; some of the issues are brain cancer, tumors, headaches, fatigue, low sperm count, impaired memory and focus and well as hearing and sleep issues.

But according to University of Bristol scientist Denis Henshaw, EMF and the constant stimulation of artificial light may interfere with our resting, or circadian rhythms. Whether we light our nights with TVs or IPads that lull us to sleep or simply never escape the light pollution from street lamps and other outside sources, our systems are saturated 24/7.
“There’s a small but detailed literature demonstrating that Magnetic Fields interfere with the action of pineal cells in synthesizing melatonin.” Translation: our human light reaction threshold is sensitive to EMF. If we get over-stimulated, we don’t produce enough of the antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer agents we need to stay healthy. (From Henshaw’s 2012 paper) Continue reading →
In the long term your children’s exposure is much greater than yours. By the time they are adults, many of them will already have used their phones or been exposed to WiFi for 20 years. Studies are showing that usage over ten-years greatly increases risk…we have no idea what the ramifications are of usage almost from birth.
It’s sometimes difficult to get all worked up about something that may not happen for 20 years, but there are also short term issues. Continue reading →
