Research Articles – General RF Effects on Humans

red starDecember, 2014: Self-reporting of symptom development from exposure to radio frequency fields of wireless smart meters in Victoria, Australia: a case series. PubMed Abstract: In 2006, the government in the state of Victoria, Australia, mandated the rollout of smart meters in Victoria, which effectively removed a whole population’s ability to avoid exposure to human-made high-frequency nonionizing radiation. This issue appears to constitute an unprecedented public health challenge for Victoria. By August 2013, 142 people had reported adverse health effects from wireless smart meters by submitting information on an Australian public Web site using its health and legal registers.  More

red star July 9th, 2012: British Study on “Biological Effects of Weak Electromagnetic Fields” – Reported on stopsmartmeters.org.uk
This British website has a good summary of this important paper by Andrew Goldsworthy explaining the detailed mechanism many scientists believe allows non thermal (weak) electromagnetic fields to cause very serious health problems by robbing cell membranes of calcium and breaking down the blood-brain barrier.  The paper is a summary of the current scientific literature and references many peer reviewed original research articles from peer reviewed journals.  The website’s summary of the paper presents all this in easy to follow layman’s language.

April 12th, Electropathic Stress in Animals and Man:
by Don Hillman, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Michigan State University Dept of Animal Science
Dr. Hillman draws interesting parallels between animal studies on effects of EMF and published research showing similar EMF effects on humans.  Most studies of such effects on humans report effects in qualitative but not quantitative terms.  The study of how milk production in cows is reduced by EMF stress provides a unique way to quantify such effects.

Greek Research Shows Vital Regions of Mouse Brains Altered by Non Thermal RF:
A total of 143 proteins in the mouse brain were impacted by the RF radiation over a period of 8 months, providing new evidence for a potential relationship between everyday cell phone use, wireless transmitters and wireless computer equipment and electrosensitivity symptoms, such as headaches, dizziness and sleep disorders, as well as with tumors, Alzheimer’s and even metabolic effects.

The Group has produced what the authors hope will be a benchmark for good science and public health policy planning. It documents bioeffects, adverse health effects and public health conclusions about impacts of non-ionizing radiation (electromagnetic fields including
extremely-low frequency ELF-EMF and radiofrequency/microwave or RF-EMF fields)..

Dirty Electricity and Electrical Hypersensitivity:
by Magda Havas and David Stetzer
Deteriorating power quality is becoming increasingly common in developed countries. Poor power quality, also known as dirty electricity, refers primarily to a combination of harmonics and transients generated primarily by electronic devices and by non-linear loads. We have assumed, until recently, that this form of energy is not biologically active. However, when Graham/Stetzer™ filters were installed in homes and schools, symptoms associated with electrical hypersensitivity (such as chronic fatigue, depression, headaches, body aches and pains, ringing in the ears, dizziness, impaired sleep, memory loss, and confusion) were reduced.

Disturbance of the immune system by electromagnetic fields:
by Ole Johansson
EMFs disturb immune function through stimulation of various allergic and inflammatory responses, as well as effects on tissue repair processes. Such disturbances increase the risks for various diseases, including cancer. These and the EMF effects on other biological processes (e.g. DNA damage, neurological effects, etc.) are now widely reported to occur at exposure levels significantly below most current national and international safety limits.

Biological Effects of Dirty Electricity with Emphasis on Diabetes and Multiple Sclerosis:
by Magda Havas
Dirty electricity is a ubiquitous pollutant. It flows along wires and radiates from them and involves both extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields and radio frequency radiation … Graham/Stetzer (GS) filters have been installed in schools with sick building syndrome and both staff and students reported improved health and more energy …  Blood sugar levels for some diabetics respond to the amount of dirty electricity in their environment.  Individuals diagnosed with multiple sclerosis have better balance and fewer tremors. Those requiring a cane walked unassisted within a few days to weeks after GS filters were installed in their home.

Public health implications of wireless technologies
by Cindy Sage and David O. Carpenter

The rapidly expanding development of new wireless technologies and the long latency for the development of such serious diseases as brain cancers means that failure to take immediate action to reduce risks may result in an epidemic of potentially fatal diseases in the future.

  1. AnYONE who says SMART METERS ARE SAFE, NEEDS TO BE IN MY SHOES. DEFINITELY NOT SAFE FOR HUMAN OR ANIMAL. EVEN WITH RADIO SUPPOSEDLY OFF IT STILL TRANSMITTS, I CAN STILL HEAR IT,SO IT ISN’T OFF. DEFEND A METER YOU BUY AND HAVE INSTALLED , THE UTILITY COMPANIES HAVE THE RIGHT TO ACCESS TO THEIR METER , BUY YOUR OWN METER, LET IT BE KNOWN UTILITY REPRESENATIVE MAY READ YOUR METER BUT ANY ATTEMPT TO REMOVE WILL.RESULT IN LEGAL PROSECUTION.THIS IS CALLED SELF DEFENSE, .UTILITIES REFUSED TO PUT ANALOG BACK ,EVEN HAVING BEEN INFORMED OF AFFECTS PHYSICALLY TO AN INDIVIDUALS HEALTH ,TO ME THAT SEEMS LIKE AN ATTEMPT TO HARM ME , TO DO BODILY HARM, SO SELF DEFENSE.

    Bioinitiative 2012 has just released its 2012 report on January 7, 2013, an update of the 2007 version. It includes approximately 1,800 new studies on biological effects and adverse health effects from electromagnetic fields such as power lines, electrical wiring, appliances, hand-held devices, and from wireless technologies such as cell and cordless phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, wireless laptops, wireless routers, baby monitors, surveillance systems, and wireless utility meters (smart meters).

    The report has been prepared by 29 authors from 10 countries; ten researchers have medical degrees (MDs), twenty-one have PhDs, three have MsC, MA or MPHs. RF color charts can be downloaded as well as 4 links with summaries of hundreds of studies done between 1990 and 2012 on the “free radical damage from both RFR (radio frequency radiation) and ELF (extremely low frequency) and a set specific to electro-sensitivity.” (www.bioinitiative.org/report/research-summaries/)
