Generally, studies must be replicated or be in agreement with similar studies. New research indicates that ELF MF exposure, in vitro, can significantly decrease melatonin activity through effects on MT1, an important melatonin receptor. Sage Melatonin links in laboratory and cell studies.
BioInitiative Report – Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Safety from Safe Space Protection
This value is arbitrary at present and only supported by the fact that in many studies this level has been chosen as a reference. These exposures can cause health risk. Bioeffects can occur in the first few minutes at levels associated with cell and cordless phone use. Sincesome of the material was revised, updated and submitted for peer-reviewed publication and published in the August issue biioinitiative Pathophysiologyan issue guest-edited by Martin Blank, one of the three members of the BioInitiative Organizing Committee.
Researchers report headaches, concentration difficulties and behavioral problems in children and adolescents; and sleep disturbances, headaches and concentration problems in adults.
The public needs to know that these risks exist, that transition to wireless should not be presumed safe, and that it is very much worth the effort to minimize bipinitiative that still provide the benefits of technology in learning, but without the threat of health risk and development bioinitiahive to learning and behavior in the classroom. The ACRBR also noted that the state of science in this area is continually being debated and updated repoort a number of expert bodies composed of the leading experts in this field and strongly urged people to consult these views for a balanced assessment of the research.
There is now much more evidence of risks to health affecting billions of rfport world-wide.
A new report by the BioInitiative Working Group says that evidence for risks to health has substantially increased since from electromagnetic fields and wireless technologies radiofrequency radiation. In that study, exposure to low-level microwave radiation caused nematodes a kind of worm to express heat shock proteins. Biojnitiative designation applies to low-intensity RFR in general, covering all RFR-emitting devices and exposure sources cell bjoinitiative cordless phones, WI-FI, wireless laptops, wireless hotspots, electronic baby monitors, wireless classroom access points, wireless antenna facilities, etc.
If the blood-brain barrier is vulnerable to serious and on-going damage from wireless exposures, then we should perhaps also be looking at the blood-ocular barrier that protects the eyesthe blood-placenta barrier that protects the developing fetus and the blood-gut barrier that protects proper digestion and nutritionand the blood-testes barrier that protects developing sperm to see if they too can be damaged by RFR.
Proactive and immediate measures to reduce unnecessary EMF exposures will lower disease burden and rates of premature death. Applying a ten-fold reduction to compensate for the lack of long-term exposure to provide a safety buffer for chronic exposure, if needed or for children as a sensitive subpopulation yields a to picowatts per square centimeter precautionary action level.
The consensus of the vast majority of climate scientists is that human caused climate change is real.
It was prepared by a group of 29 individuals, most of them scientists who have long held controversial positions on health effects of electromagnetic fields. Repirt Li New Chapter: The general lack of supporting evidence from the animal cancer tests showing no effect, and lack of generally accepted mechanism by which RF or ELF fields can cause any biological effects at the low level exposures considered here apart from heating are other stumbling blocks.
Picking Cherries in Science: The Bio-Initiative Report
Transcriptomic and Proteomic Research Dr. Evidence for Stress Response: Science and Medicine Tagged in: EMF stimulates stress proteins indicating an assault on the cell. Fields from power lines are at 50 or 60 Hz or cycles per second; those from mobile phones and other RF communications and bioinitiatiev systems are in the range of hundreds or thousands of MHz megahertz or million cycles per second. New safety standards bioinitiafive urgently needed for protection against EMF and wireless exposures that now appear everywhere in daily life.
They are continuously subjected to time-varying conditions in the form of both extrinsic driving from the environment and intrinsic rhythms generated by specialized cellular clocks within the organism itself.
They appear to be trying to associate themselves with legitimate concerns about the environment and climate change. This is the case, for instance, of the circadian oscillations exhibited by the suprachiasmatic nuclei, the period of which is known to be determined by the mean period of the individual neurons making up the circadian clock 3—7.
But the analogy with climate change is the exact opposite of the impression they are trying to make.
Eleven 11 of the 13 published epidemiologic residential and occupational studies are considered to reporh positive evidence that high ELF MF exposure can result in decreased melatonin production. World-renowned expert on the safety of wireless, radiofrequency and microwave radiation.
Health agencies in their reviews have paid little attention to the expression or non-expression of heat shock proteins induced by RF exposure, in part because of lack of a robust and repeatable effect and in part because of the difficulty in separating the effects of simple temperature change from any specific effect of RF.
Such problems, however, require exposure to fields at vastly higher levels than anything that would be encountered in ordinary life. One might equally cite the study as showing a protective effect of RF exposure at low exposure levels. Studies of human sperm show genetic DNA damage from cell phones on standby mode and wireless laptop use. Some of the shortcomings identified included that the report made false claims as well as claims which lacked scientific basis.
Summary for the Public Table Conclusions — Ms. The Health Council of the Netherlands reviewed the BioInitiative report in September and boinitiative it is a selective review of existing research and does not present a repogt analysis considering the relative scientific quality of different studies.
