Are Cell Phones and Wireless Technology Dangerous?

Are Cell Phones and Wireless Technology Dangerous? Watch as this man uses special device to measure dangers of cell phones and office equipment.
A cellular phone is basically a radio that sends signals on waves to a base station. The carrier signal generates two types of radiation fields: a near-field plume and a far-field plume. Living organisms, too, generate electromagnetic fields at the cellular, tissue, organ, and organism level; this is called the biofield. Both the near-field and far-field plumes from cell phones and in the environment can wreak havoc with the human biofield, and when the biofield is compromised in any way, says Dr. Carlo, so is metabolism and physiology.

“The near field plume is the one we’re most concerned with. This plume that’s generated within five or six inches of the center of a cell phone’s antenna is determined by the amount of power necessary to carry the signal to the base station,” he explains. “The more power there is, the farther the plume radiates the dangerous information-carrying radio waves.”

A carrier wave oscillates at 1900 megahertz (MHz) in most phones, which is mostly invisible to our biological tissue and doesn’t do damage. The information-carrying secondary wave necessary to interpret voice or data is the problem, says Dr. Carlo. That wave cycles in a hertz (Hz) range familiar to the body. Your heart, for example, beats at two cycles per second, or two Hz. Our bodies recognize the information-carrying wave as an “invader,” setting in place protective biochemical reactions that alter physiology and cause biological problems that include intracellular free-radical buildup, leakage in the blood-brain barrier, genetic damage, disruption of intercellular communication, and an increase in the risk of tumors. The health dangers of recognizing the signal, therefore, aren’t from direct damage, but rather are due to the biochemical responses in the cell.

Here’s what happens:

Cellular energy is now used for protection rather than metabolism. Cell membranes harden, keeping nutrients out and waste products in.

Waste accumulating inside the cells creates a higher concentration of free radicals, leading to both disruption of DNA repair (micronuclei) and cellular dysfunction.

Unwanted cell death occurs, releasing the micronuclei from the disrupted DNA repair into the fluid between cells (interstitial fluid), where they are free to replicate and proliferate. This, says Dr. Carlo, is the most likely mechanism that contributes to cancer.
With the background levels of information-carrying radio waves dramatically increasing because of the widespread use of cell phones,Wi-Fi, and other wireless communication, the effects from the near and far-fields are very similar. Overall, says Dr. Carlo, almost all of the acute and chronic symptoms seen in electrosensitive patients can be explained in some part by disrupted intercellular communication. These symptoms of electrosensitivity include inability to sleep, general malaise, and headaches. Could this explain the increase in recent years of conditions such as ADHD), autism, and anxiety disorder?

“One thing all these conditions have in common is a disruption, to varying degrees, of intercellular communication. When we were growing up, TV antennas were on top of our houses and such waves were up in the sky. Cell phones and Wi-Fi have brought those things down to the street, integrated them into the environment, and that’s absolutely new. The recognition mechanism, where protein vibration sensors on the cell membrane pick up a signal and interpret it as an invader, only works because the body recognizes something it’s never seen before.”

As to increases in brain tumors tied to cell phone use, it’s too early to tell due to a lack of hard data, says Dr. Carlo. “We’re never going to see that in time to have it matter. Here in the US, we’re six years behind in getting the brain tumor database completed, and currently the best data are from 1999. By the time you see any data showing an increase, the ticking time bomb is set.”

Epidemic curve projections, however, indicate that in 2006, we can expect to see 40,000 to 50,000 cases of brain and eye cancer. This is based on published peer-reviewed studies that allow calculation of risk and construction of epidemic curves. By 2010, says Dr. Carlo, expect that number to be between 400,000 and 500,000 new cases worldwide.

“This means we’re on the beginning curve of an epidemic, with epidemic defined as a change in the occurrence of a disease that is so dramatic in its increase that it portends serious public health consequences,” says Dr. Carlo. “This is what’s not being told to the public. One of the things that I suggest to people who use a cell phone is to use an air tube headset. If you use a wired headset, the current moving through the wire of the headset attracts ambient informational carrying radio waves and thereby increases your exposure.”

    EMF’s don’t permanently effect your health, it only applies to the area. I think that these people on the video are getting EMF’s mixed up with EMR fields, which can be a very serious biohazard.

    In short: Run all the damn electricity you want, just don’t spend too much time near a toxic waste dump. 😛

    OMG 1:56 that was sooooo annoying…that really high pitched sound was painful

  3. RoboticusMusic says:

    @supersal001 Correct.

  4. Josuhe Mejia says:

    lol fox news. oh, republicans and right wingers

  5. BinAlladin says:

    Right Winger are best winner! Republican are the best in test!

  6. afxgrin says:

    It’s totally placebo.

    There’s this company that installed wireless networks in there business, and some of the staff complained of headaches from the transmitters. So the technician went and supposedly turned the wireless stations off – but what he did was turn off the LEDs on them – to make them look off. Suddenly – the people who were complaining claimed the headaches went away soon after…

    Needless to say – these people were all fired.

  7. redbeast2 says:

    What kind of radiation, exactly, are you going to get from your laptop?

  8. Mr.Who says:

    @supersal001lol, purposely exposing yourself to harm knowing that you will get painfully sick is not natural selection its something known as SHEER STUPIDITY

  9. ziz nator says:

    @yomama5567 but is when there are stupid people thinking they know about it

  10. madamerotten says:

    @cobainzlady I see. So, "EMF," in this case, means "eat more fish." By the way, if you’re going to criticize me for the way I use English, at least capitalize the first words in your sentences.

  11. Sahr Sankoh says:

    No. Media sensationalism to scare is not funny. Of course, this is basic electrical spiel can be explained in grade school, it’s embarrassing to see how people take to this nonsense.

    The future concerning electromotive forces may prove to be fatal one day. Until then, BS!!

  12. Jay Roy says:

    are you serious you get a new IPHONE 4 rolf in my head its like die of electromagnetic field

  13. avmf8 says:

    @theCosmicQueen That noise is a transmitters stupid its called Tinnitus. I have that a bit a well its not radio frequencies. When its quite you hear a slight noise.

  14. xtremerace says:

    wow fox news people are so stupid. Electromagnetic fields dont effect anything. Its just a magnetic field. The earth emits magnetic field and we live in it. yes there are always effect of excessive of everything including this report making everything look scary.

  15. Radioteknik says:

    The phone itself was stronger then but it was analog transmission without sync pulses … and the frequency was low.. and they were not so many… of them.. nowadays they are synchronized at frequencies interfering with the bodys own pulses and also it uses microwaves that makes it penetrate deep in to the body..
    You get a point also there with water molecules but it starts to affect on cellular levels at a fraction of the "cooking level".

  16. Dennis Aubrey says:

    the wireless industry spends billions every year to keep us in the dark about this issue, and the government is making a pile of cash leasing the rights to the ariwaves. Studies not funded by the wireless industry are 900% more likely to show negative health effects.

  17. Mastervitro says:

    yah it is full of BS, but some devices emit diffrent kinds of radiation that are harmful over time, its possible cell phones do.

  18. Radioteknik says:

    Indeed true, it COOK’s the brain…

  19. skidan4real says:

    @petshopboysfan1 God bless us all. Love, light & joy.

  20. Taylaron1 says:

    Oh my gosh! NOW we know why tens of billions of humans have mild stomach aches occasionally! Really come on, you live with this stuff every day. Driving your car once a week is a larger health risk than typical electromagnetic radiation. If you want to make a fuss, stop focusing on EMF and focus on getting rid of cars! Oh! The sun is shining on us! Everyone get under a table, we’re going to get cancer!

  21. Michael Jones. says:

    i blame george dubya bush….. for everything.

  22. Steven King says:

    Look at the comments. Oldest YT video ever.

  23. Obataladance says:

    Sorry but the media in Europe is owned by the same people that elsewhere and they are liars manipulators too.

  24. i878787i says:

    And at no time did they mention the units the device measures. The ‘Q link’ is a load of nonsense too. I sense that the anti-emf industry is going to thrive on gullible people scared of low level emf. No doubt the placebo effect will cure all their emf related illnesses

  25. Pham Nuwen says:

    hey afxgrin, i’m interested in this story. would you mind sending me a message with a link to it?

  26. phototristan says:

    Why is it always someone trying to sell some device reporting that wireless is dangerous? Oh yeah, b/c they want to sell you the device.

  27. Radioteknik says:

    and why is that investigations payed by the telecom companies always claim that the usage of cellphones are safe?? Yes again because they want to sell phones as long as possible…

  28. Salvador G says:

    I see your point. but also consider that technology in cancer detection has increased greatly. year back there miht not have been many cancer cases but that doesn’t mean people did not have cancer. they were simply labeled as having died of a natural cause because the cancer was not detected, yet they still died of cancer.

  29. 54spiritedwill54 says:

    Scare tatics.

  30. Pravvus says:

    The FCC found no adverse effects on animal testing with cell phones. They stated that cancer due to cell phones was highly unlikely. The limit to transmitting power for a phone is less than 1.6w legally. fones of the 90’s transmit power was 3.6w or more. Fones today only have about 0.6w or less.

  31. powerone1 says:

    go live in a cave. you’re sure to be safe that way. :))))

  32. gglafatottari Drullusukkor says:

    no its not but i dought that other than uv x-rays gama-rays other forms of raiation arn’t going to chause much problem! lol "can cause serious problems… unset stomach, heart burn…"

  33. jednoucelovy says:

    Wow if they feed you with this level of bullshit I’m glad I’m in Europe where televisions say (mostly) truth.

  34. afxgrin says:

    It wasn’t a news story. It was an account from another IT tech that I met online. He could’ve just made the whole thing up. but at the same time, I generally agree that the risks are not as trumped up as they are made out to be.

    Where’s being bathed all the time in 60 Hz fields from the electrical grid – and people aren’t in an uproar over that.

    It’s just people trying to make a quick buck.

  35. SudoJim says:

    using any electromagnetic devices will kill you!!!

  36. ziz nator says:

    i bet this idiot works for green peace, only some one who works there is that negligent of recent factual based and multi level tests done with cell phones and radios since they were invented

  37. snerjeck says:

    Cell phones haven’t been around that long. Also, they don’t really hurt you. People are full of sht.

  38. redbeast2 says:

    RF = radio frequency?

  39. NoRadBlog says:

    The best protection is not using RF EMR devices, and to keep a safe distance from them.

  40. skidan4real says:

    I cant remember me mentioning anything about religion, however i will say that it is man who created religion to start wars through religion & i am not religious by the way. Modern technology is de-volution. The more you regulate the natural environment to make your life easier (laziness) by integration with technology (RFID) & artificial means, the less human we become. The more reliant on the artificial environment, the less relevant we become in it, this is dehumanization. Be blessed :o)

  41. Steven King says:

    Reported danger=sales

  42. xsjado man says:

    im still confused about all this, i mean if it were true that all this radiation is bad for us then surly we should all be dead now as all the things being used in this news report has been used for many many years think of the micro-wave that gives out more radiation than any lap top or phone n yet no one has died from it unless there used wrong. but nearly every house hold has one n people are still living a long heathly life.

  43. sarfios says:

    don’t vote… low… coz u gonna die…. 😀 that’s the trueee 😀

  44. Roger L. Ortiz says:

    i gona death?? omg no!!

  45. test123ok says:

    whats more dangerous to your health is Faux news

  46. madamerotten says:

    I’d like to know something more about Dr. Robert Blake, such as what his credentials might be. (Perhaps he is a podiatrist.) Or perhaps he’s someone who tries to capitalize on layman ignorance by endorsing devices like a "TriField Meter" or a "Q Link." Perhaps he sells these devices, like he sold the hype-craving marketers at FOX News this load of pseudo-science.

    Nice fake science!

    *Thanks, I meant *millions, I was just a little carried away. Plus, I hate cars…

    @supersal001 Evolution is not integrating with the digital age. We are taught that because most of us are not aware of our own energies….In our natural state we will evolve when we are in tune with the soul…We depend too much on technology & unfortunately this will be our downfall.The digital age is devolution not evolution. Embrace all you have within you & you will evolve. Be blessed
