Many people can’t tell you the source of their electricity—whether nuclear, coal, solar, wind or hydroelectric. Most people don’t realize that electricity runs through metal wires because they are good conductors, but your body is a good conductor as well. In fact, every system in your body runs on electricity, from your cellular metabolism to your heartbeat to your ability to pull up a memory. Your body’s electronics are much more intricate and sensitive than the electronics in your computer or cell phone. But mention that serious health effects can result from human- generated electromagnetic fields (EMFs), and everyone and their dog seem to be able to quote propaganda on how these frequencies and their emitting devices are “proven safe”—which defies logic. For most consumers, information about the health effects of these fields comes from reports in electronics-based media (internet, radio, and TV) or tech- ads-dependent media (newspapers and news magazines). And the vast bulk of the research is paid for by the telecommunications industry, which cares about its sales and legal liability—not your health. This industry has spent billions of dollars in political lobbying. There is little meaningful government oversight concerning safety. Standards of exposure in some countries are thousands times the exposure allowable in others. Making electronics companies, government agencies or employers liable for the damage they do would throw a wrench in the cogs of our global economy and lifestyles. We’ve collectively—through thousands of small decisions—dug ourselves into a critically unhealthy infrastructure. A radio frequency engineer once told me, as we stood in a city park, that if we could see the invisible electromagnetic waves surrounding us, the air would look the consistency of pea soup. We’d be lucky to be able to see our toes. I asked him whether he carried a cell phone. He responded thoughtfully, “Do tobacco executives smoke? Of course not. Do electronics engineers carry cell phones? They know better.” Few people are listening to the real authority to which they have instant access—their own body. Some of the most commonly experienced 1/24 2015. 06. 25. The Effects of Electromagnetic Fields: What is Penetrating You? effects of EMFs, like depression, brain fog, attention deficit disorder, chronic fatigue, autism, sleeplessness, anxiety, and Alzheimer’s increase coffeeshop and drug corporation profits as people look for relief. But a drug-dependent fix is different than vigorous health, especially for the planet. Most of the initial research behind the toys we hold dear—cordless phones, cellular phones, computers, the internet, and satellites— originated from military coffers with an agenda of developing ways to kill people effectively. Despite all the fun, efficiency, and horizon-expansion our devices have brought us, their inventors have seemed to continue the tradition of overlooking the needs of our bodies and the rest of the Earth in their design. Until we veer into different spiritual underpinnings with a love for all life, we’re acting like suicidal teenagers in a drag race in our tech development. When you’re in intense fields for long periods, your body rallies to cope with the stress and come to an unnatural new homeostasis. Then when you’re in a cleaner environment, you may experience withdrawal symptoms and crave electronics. So you may associate the cleaner environment with pain, and feel better in a dirty electrical environment. But the onslaught is damaging your health regardless of your perception of what’s happening. I call this gyration with EMFs “addiction,” because I so often encounter in conversing on this subject with people the same denial, rationalization, and furtiveness one might encounter in a drug addict who is trying to hold onto his sweet poison. For instance, I conversed a few years ago with a friend who had installed ethernet during renovations of both his home and office building, “so that years from now when enough people die from wireless fields, and people are calling for wired telecommunications, I’ll have the infrastructure in.” He and his wife actually use wi fi. She’s got advanced cancer, and they still haven’t plugged into the ethernet in either their home or offices, and use their iphones constantly. He’s not in denial about the effects of EMFs. But I guess his idea that “enough people have to die” to change his behavior includes his wife. It’s irrational. I realize there may be many other factors involved in her cancer, but usually if people are dying, they do try to boost their health on many fronts. Another friend’s kidney shriveled up and died. He carries his cell phone over that kidney. His doctor could find no infection or other reason for it dying. This friend thinks the problem was his cell phone, but he still carries it. Part of the problem here may be that with EMF exposure, the parts of the brain that short-circuit early on are the frontal lobes and hippocampus—parts crucial in developing insight, evolving memories, and making good judgments. But beyond that, we are a culture addicted to EMFs, and manipulative behaviors run all through our collective legal, economic, and ecological management systems regarding them. For instance, the burden to prove that satellite emanations are harmful rests on those assaulted by them. Instead, the burden to prove their safety should rest on the satellite companies who hold hostage our collective atmosphere—our window to the rest of the galaxy. Telecommunications companies finance 2/24 2015. 06. 25. The Effects of Electromagnetic Fields: What is Penetrating You? government lobbyists, public relations staff, scientists, and lawyers to sequester their self-interest. They come up with ads like the one I saw on the back of TIME magazine, of a baby playing on his mother’s laptop. Any respectable country would have arrested the photographer for child abuse to let a baby’s developing brain come that close to such frequencies, given the hard scientific research on that issue. But we get used to these images, and play them out. Research paid for by the telecommunications industry has found health effects in one third of studies done. Research sponsored by other sources has found health effects in two thirds of studies. Coincidence? And most research, even at universities, is paid for by the industry. (I used to be a university administrator myself, aware of the pressure to bring in the funds.) The sober reality is that even from within this corrupt system there is overwhelming scientific evidence that EMFs cause far-reaching health effects. No one can seriously, knowledgeably deny that. To say that biological processes are not electrically based is like saying the sun revolves around the Earth. And to say that EMFs from our contraptions will not interfere with those electrically-based biological processes is like saying that hitting your thumb with a hammer will not cause physical effects. We can haggle over how dire the consequences of our electronic meddling are. But it’s impossible for anyone to predict accurately the effects on future generations (or if there will even be future generations who can survive in the artificial environment we’ve collectively manufactured). After all, EMFs cause genetic damage. Thousands of scientific studies proved at least four decades ago, and have continued to prove, that EMFs are undeniably, often devastatingly harmful for the bodies of humans, trees, the atmosphere, etc. But if the science mattered in our technology development, our technology would look vastly different than it does. For instance, a cordless phone could be made to emit microwaves only when you’re talking on it, but most are made to emit frequencies constantly—making them in some ways worse than cell phones. My partner Peter MacGill and I used to perform electromagnetic audits in people’s homes and businesses, measuring and mitigating the fields. He was a general contractor, and could easily find wiring mistakes. I’m a psychic, and could help people determine if their maladies were EMF- related or not. We’ve stopped doing audits. We noticed that other EMF auditors in our town were dying or getting very sick from being in other people’s toxicity! We also found that people seldom changed. We’d be hired to measure the power lines around someone’s house, while the wireless devices in their home gave off a load of microwaves that would have been measurable from Mars! I thought of selling devices for people to put on their phones, but found offensive these companies’ assertions that they made people’s phone or modem safe. OK, maybe they help. But they are no substitute for finding wired alternatives. People acted like suggesting that they give up their cell phone (especially if it wasn’t needed for their business) was like asking them to give up a beloved spouse. You saw in my above example, that the opposite was the case for my friend. He risked losing his spouse for the wi fi, as he himself believes EMFs contribute to cancer. We are in a cultural health emergency. If you wish to live a long, healthy life in this global society, you will likely have to make huge 3/24
