From the responses received after last week’s newsletter on Radiation Barbie, I’ve been bombarded with messages from concerned readers asking, “What’s our game plan?” when it comes to dealing with invisible radiation in our homes, offices and indeed lives.
Let’s turn the clock back a couple of decades to uncover the chilling tale of the first-ever grand study on the safety of cell phones.
The Wireless Technology Research initiative received its funding from the industry which, in turn appointed Dr. George Carlo.
With a PhD in pathology and a law degree, Carlo was specifically chosen by the cell phone industry to address a public-relations dilemma that posed a significant threat to their profits.
His task was to conclusively demonstrate the safety of cell phones. Skeptics, however, had concerns that Dr. Carlo might merely serve as the front man for an industry cover-up.
However, his results didn’t align with the expectations of his paymaster. After 7 years of research Dr. Carlo concluded cell phones were detrimental to human health.
In February 2000 Dr Carlo took the stage to present his final report at the wireless industry’s annual conference.
After speaking for barely 10 minutes, two heavy set men forcibly escorted the scientist to a taxi outside and waited until it pulled away.
Dr. Carlo was immediately removed from the programme and the machinery of public relations swung into action to mitigate any potential harm his findings may have made.
This has been the case ever since.
While telecoms industry-funded studies tell us than radiation from cell phones is “within safety levels”, countless independent studies have reached similar conclusions to the Dr Carlo study. By agreeing to set the bar so high, governments are merely dancing to the tune of BigTel.
Do you remember the video Take Back Your Power? It wasn’t a superhero movie plot but an insightful documentary. If you can’t find the time to watch it all, don’t miss what governments around the world tell us are “safety levels” when they’re not even close to safe.
These are revealed between 44:30 – 47:20.
Researchers from the Alliance For Natural Health (the good guys) conducted some valuable detective work questioning the supposed ‘harmlessness’ of cell phone use.
They looked at smartphone users’ brains and found changes that would make even a drug addict raise an eyebrow. That alone is troubling.
This Is What I Do
I’m not against the use of cell phones but I limit my usage of it every day. I didn’t buy mine – it was given to me by a family member who upgraded. It is useful for practical tasks like banking, taking photos and occasionally finding directions; not for mindless browsing on social media or any time-sucking apps such as email, news and web browsers.
When I’m asleep my cell phone is always in another room, either on aeroplane mode or switched off altogether.
If I need to wake up early I use a reliable battery operated alarm clock.
Listen to my friend Patrick van der Bergt speaking about this very subject. It’s an eye-opener and shows exactly where the dangers lie and what you can do about them.
I’ve used my phone pouch for over 2 years. Yes there are other pouches available but the ones I’ve tested don’t have the same versatility or degree of protection.
