Fukushima: “An Ongoing Global Radiological Catastrophe”. “A Huge Coverup”. Dr. Helen Caldicott

fukushimaThe eight year anniversary of the triple meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility passed mostly without comment in mainstream media circles. In spite of ongoing radiological contamination that will continue to spread and threaten human health for lifetimes to come, other stories dominate the international news cycle. The climate change conundrum, serious though it may be, seemingly crowds out all other clear and present environmental hazards.

As part of efforts to normalize this historic event and cover it up in its magnitude, the Japanese government has invested considerable financial, public relations and other resources into what they are billing the ‘Recovery Olympics‘ set to take place in a year’s time in Tokyo. 

But Helen Caldicott warns that the dangers associated with Fukushima have not gone away and remain a cause for concern. 

Dr. Helen Caldicott has been an author, physician and one of the world’s leading anti-nuclear campaigners. She helped to reinvigorate the group of Physicians for Social Responsibility, acting as president from 1978 to 1983. Since its founding in 2001 she served as president of the US based Nuclear Policy Research Institute later called Beyond Nuclear which initiates symposia and educational projects aimed at informing the public about the dangers of nuclear power, nuclear weapons, and nuclear war. And she is the editor of the 2014 book, Crisis Without End: The Medical and Ecological Consequences of the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe.

On the week marking the eighth anniversary of the Fukushima meltdowns, the Global Research News Hour radio program, hosted by Michael Welch, reached out to Dr. Caldicott to get her expert opinion on the health dangers posed by the most serious nuclear disaster since, at least, the 1986 Chernobyl event.

Global Research: Now the Japanese government is preparing to welcome visitors to Japan for the 2020 Olympic Games, and coverage of the 8th anniversary of the Fukushima disaster is hardly, it seems to me, registered given the significant radiological and other dangers that you cited and your authors cited in your 2014 book, Crisis Without End. Now it’s been more than four years since that book came out. I was hoping you could update our listenership on what is currently being recognized as the main health threats in 2019, perhaps not registered in the book, that you’re currently looking at in relation to the Fukushima meltdown.

Helen Caldicott: Well it’s difficult because the Japanese government has authorized really only examination of thyroid cancer. Now thyroid cancer is caused by radioactive iodine and there were many, many cases of that after Chernobyl. And already, they’ve looked at children under the age of 18 in the Fukushima prefecture at the time of the accident, and … how many children… 100…no 201 by June 18 last year… 201 had developed thyroid cancer. Some cancers had metastasized. The incidence of thyroid cancer in that population normally is 1 per million. So obviously it’s an epidemic of thyroid cancer and it’s just starting now.

What people need to understand is the latent period of carcinogenesis, ie the time after exposure to radiation when cancers develop is any time from 3 years to 80 years. And so it’s a very, very long period. Thyroid cancers appear early. Leukemia appears about 5 to 10 years later. They’re not looking for leukemia. Solid cancers of every organ, or any organ as such appear about 15 years later and continue and in fact the Hibakusha from the Hiroshima and Nagasaki who are still alive are still developing cancers in higher than normal numbers.

The Japanese government has told doctors that they are not to talk to their patients about radiation and illnesses derived thereof, and in fact if the doctors do do that, they might lose their funding from the government. The IAEA, the International Atomic Energy Agency interestingly set up a hospital – a cancer hospital – in Fukushima along with the Fukushima University for people with cancer, which tells you everything.

So there’s a huge, huge cover up. I have been to Japan twice and particularly to Fukushima and spoken to people there and the parents are desperate to hear the truth even if it’s not good truth. And they thanked me for telling them the truth. So it’s an absolute medical catastrophe I would say, and a total cover up to protect the nuclear industry and all its ramifications.

GR: Now, are we talking about some of the, the contamination that happened 8 years ago or are we talking about ongoing emissions from, for example–

HC: Well there are ongoing emissions into the air consistently, number one. Number two, a huge amount of water is being stored –over a million gallons in tanks at the site. That water is being siphoned off from the reactor cores, the damaged melted cores. Water is pumped consistently every day, every hour, to keep the cores cool in case they have another melt. And that water, of course, is extremely contaminated.

Now they say they’ve filtered out the contaminants except for the tritium which is part of the water molecule, but they haven’t. There’s strontium, cesium, and many other elements in that water – it’s highly radioactive – and because there isn’t enough room to build more tanks, they’re talking about emptying all that water into the Pacific Ocean and the fishermen are very, very upset. The fish already being caught off Fukushima, some are obviously contaminated. But this will be a disaster.

Water comes down from the mountains behind the reactors, flows underneath the reactors into the sea and always has. And when the reactors were in good shape, the water was fine, didn’t get contaminated. But now the three molten cores in contact with that water flowing under the reactors and so the water flowing into the Pacific is very radioactive and that’s a separate thing from the million gallons or more in those tanks.

They put up a refrigerated wall of frozen dirt around the reactors to prevent that water from the mountains flowing underneath the reactors, which has cut down the amount of water flowing per day from 500 tons to about a hundred and fifty. But of course, if they lose electricity, that refrigeration system is going to fail, and it’s a transient thing anyway so it’s ridiculous. In terms… So over time the Pacific is going to become more and more radioactive.

They talk about decommissioning and removing those molten cores. When robots go in and try and have a look at them, their wiring just melts and disappears. They’re extraordinarily radioactive. No human can go near them because they would die within 48 hours from the radiation exposure. They will never, and I quote never, decommission those reactors. They will never be able to stop the water coming down from the mountains. And so, the truth be known, it’s an ongoing global radiological catastrophe which no one really is addressing in full.

GR: Do we have a better reading on, for example the thyroids, but also leukemia incubation—

HC: No they’re not looking–well, leukemia they’re not looking for leukemia…

GR: Just thyroid

HC: They’re not charting it. So the only cancer they’re looking at is thyroid cancer and that’s really high, and you know it’s at 201 have already been diagnosed and some have metastasized. And a very tight lid is being kept on any other sort of radiation related illnesses and leukemia and the like. All the other cancers and the like, and leukemia is so… It’s not just a catastrophe it’s a…

GR: …a cover up

HC: Yeah. I can’t really explain how I feel medically about it. It’s just hideous.

GR: Well I have a brother who’s a physician, who was pointing to well we should maybe, the World Health Organization is a fairly authoritative body of research for all of the indicators and epidemiological aspects of this, but you seem to suggest the World Health Organization may not be that reliable in light of the fact that they are partnered with the IAEA. Is that my understanding…?

HC: Correct. They signed a document, I think in ‘59, with the IAEA that they would not report any medical effects of radiological disasters and they’ve stuck to that. So they are in effect in this area part of the International Atomic Energy Agency whose mission is to promote nuclear power. So don’t even think about the WHO. it’s really obscene.

GR: So what would… the incentive would be simply that they got funding?

HC: I don’t know. I really don’t know but they sold themselves to the devil.

GR: That’s pretty incredible. So there’s also the issue of biomagnification in the oceans, where you have radioactive debris, hundreds of tons of this radioactive water getting into the oceans and biomagnifying up through the food chain, so these radioactive particles can get inside our bodies. Could you speak to what you anticipate to see, what you would anticipate, whether it’s recorded by World Health authorities or not, what we could expect to see in the years ahead in terms of the illnesses that manifest themselves?

HC: Well number one, Fukushima is a very agricultural prefecture. Beautiful, beautiful peaches, beautiful food, and lots of rice. And the radiation spread far and wide through the Fukushima prefecture, and indeed they have been plowing up millions and millions of tons of radioactive dirt and storing it in plastic bags all over the prefecture. The mountains are highly radioactive and every time it rains, down comes radiation with the water. So the radiation – the elements. And there are over 200 radioactive elements made in a nuclear reactor. Some have lives of seconds and some have lives of millions of years or lasts for millions of years will I say. So there are many many isotopes, long-lasting isotopes – cesium, strontium, tritium is another one – but many, many on the soil in Fukushima.

And what happens is – you talked about biomagnification – when the plants take up the water from the soil, they take up the cesium which is a potassium analog – it resembles potassium. Strontium 90 resembles calcium and the like. And these elements get magnified by orders of magnitude in the rice and in the plants. And so when you eat food that is grown in Fukushima, the chances are it’s going to be relatively radioactive.

They’ve been diluting radioactive rice with non-radioactive rice to make it seem a bit better. Now, into the ocean go these isotopes as well, and the algae bio-magnify them by – you know -ten to a hundred times or more. And then the crustaceans eat the algae, bio-magnify it more. The little fish eat the crustaceans, the big fish eat the little fish and the like. And tuna found in – off the coast of California some years ago contained isotopes from Fukushima. Also fish, being caught on the west coast of California contained some of these isotopes. So, it’s an ongoing bio-magnification catastrophe.

And the thing is that you can’t even taste, smell or see radioactive elements in your food. They’re invisible. And it takes a long time for cancers to occur. And you can’t identify a particular cancer caused by a particular substance or isotope. You can only identify that problem by doing epidemiological studies comparing irradiated people with non-irradiated people to see what the cancer levels are and that data comes from Hiroshima and Nagasaki and many, many, many other studies.

GR: Chernobyl as well, no?

HC: Oh, Chernobyl! Well, a wonderful book was produced by the, uh, Russians, and published by the New York Academy of Sciences, called Chernobyl with over 5000 on the ground studies of children and diseases in Belarus and the Ukraine, and all over Europe. And by now over a million people have already died from the Chernobyl disaster. And many diseases have been caused by that, including premature aging in children, microcephaly in babies, very small heads, diabetes, leukemia, I mean, I could go on and on.

Um, and those diseases which have been very well described in that wonderful book, um, which everyone should read, are not being addressed or identified or looked for in the Fukushima or Japanese population.

May I say that parts of Tokyo are extremely radioactive. People have been measuring the dirt from rooves of apartments, from the roadway, from vacuum cleaner dust. And some of these samples, they’re so radioactive that they would classify to be buried in radioactive waste facilities in America. So, that’s number one.

Number two, to have the Olympics in Fukushima just defies imagination. And uh, some of the areas where the athletes are going to be running, the dust and dirt there has been measured, and it’s highly radioactive. So, this is Abe, the Prime Minister of Japan, who set this up to – as a sort of way to obscure what Fukushima really means. And those young athletes, you know, who are – and young people are much more sensitive to radiation, developing cancers later than older people – it’s just a catastrophe waiting to happen.

GR: Dr. Caldicott…

HC:They’re calling it the radioactive Olympics!

GR: (Chuckle). Is there anything that people can do, you know, whether they live in Japan or, say, the west coast of North America to mitigate the effects that this disaster has had, and may still be having eight years later?

HC: Yes. Do not eat any Japanese food because you don’t know where it’s sourced. Do not eat fish from Japan, miso, rice, you name it. Do not eat Japanese food. Period. Um, fish caught off the west coast of Canada and America, well, they’re not testing the fish so I don’t know what you’d do. Um, I mean, most of it’s probably not radioactive but you don’t know because you can’t taste it.

Um they’ve closed down the air-borne radioactive measuring instruments off the west coast of America, uh, but that’s pretty bad, because there still could be another huge accident at those reactors.

For instance, if there’s another large earthquake, number one, all those tanks would be destroyed and the water would pour into the Pacific. Number two, there could be another meltdown, a release – huge release of radiation, um, from the damaged reactors. So, things are very tenuous, but they’re not just tenuous now. They’re going to be tenuous forever.

Japan announces new plan to drain radioactive Fukushima water DIRECTLY into the Pacific Ocean

fukushimaGovernment authorities in Japan have announced new plans to start dumping highly radioactive wastewater from the failed Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility directly into the Pacific Ocean.

Though the amount of radiation in the water far exceeds legally-permitted levels, according to the plant’s operator and documents reviewed by the U.K.’s Telegraph, there’s apparently no other place to put it at the site, which is on the verge of seeing its storage capacity completely maxed out.

Reports indicate that approximately 1.09 million tons of contaminated water currently being stored inside 900 tanks at Fukushima will soon be drained in the Pacific in order to make more space for new water, a move that’s sparking outrage among local residents and a number of environmental organizations that worry about what the vast contamination will do to the world’s largest body of water.

TEPCO, Japanese government have clearly been lying about “safe” Fukushima wastewater

The announcement is sure to be puzzling for anyone who believes the narrative that’s long been conveyed by the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) that nuclear wastewater at the Fukushima site is “safe,” containing only small levels of the radioactive contaminant tritium.

It also brings up questions about the repeated assurances from the Japanese government that a so-called “Advanced Liquid Processing System,” or ALPS, developed by the nuclear arm of Hitachi Ltd., has been effectively removing all other radioactive materials to “non-detect” levels, which doesn’t seem to be the case.

The power of the elements: Discover Colloidal Silver Mouthwash with quality, natural ingredients like Sangre de Drago sap, black walnut hulls, menthol crystals and more. Zero artificial sweeteners, colors or alcohol. Learn more at the Health Ranger Storeand help support this news site.

The Telegraph says it’s obtained documents from a source in Japan’s government revealing that ALPS “has consistently failed to eliminate a cocktail of other radioactive elements, including iodine, ruthenium, rhodium, antimony, tellurium, cobalt and strontium.”

When asked about these documents, Hitachi reportedly declined to comment on the performance of its ALPS technology. The Japanese government similarly refused to respond to multiple requests for comment about the seeming disparity.

Like we’ve been saying all along: Fukushima is a MAJOR coverup

According to The Telegraph, other “restricted” documents suggest that the arm of the Japanese government responsible for handling the Fukushima disaster didn’t even know that ALPS was “malfunctioning,” and not actually removing harmful radionuclides to “non-detect” levels. So there’s no telling what the actual levels are of nuclear radiation being dumped from the site into the Pacific.

A study conducted by the Kahoko Shinpo newspaper found in 2017 that 45 of 84 water samples collected from near the Fukushima site tested extremely high for iodine 129 and ruthenium 106, at levels far above what’s considered “acceptable” even by liberally-defined government standards.

Keep in mind that iodine 129 is known to cause thyroid cancer, and has a half life of 15.7 million years – meaning it’s not going anywhere once released into the environment. Ruthenium 106 is similarly carcinogenic and high-risk when its comes to its environmental pervasiveness.

And it was just last month that TEPCO was forced to admit that a shocking 80 percent of its stored wastewater still contains radioactive substances at levels far beyond what was established by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.

“Tepco has now admitted that levels of strontium 90, for example, are more than 100 times above legally permitted levels in 65,000 tons of water that has been through the ALPS cleansing system and are 20,000 times above levels set by the government in several storage tanks at the site,” explains The Telegraph.

What this all suggests, of course – and affirming what we’ve been saying all along – is that TEPCO has for years been lying about the true level of radioactive contamination at the Fukushima site. There’s also no telling to what degree harmful radiation has already been dumped into the Pacific Ocean, only to spread far and wide across the globe.

EPA To Increase Your Exposure To Radiation And Mercury

mercuryBy  

New proposals would expose us to more environmental pollutants. Action Alert!

It doesn’t take much of a scientific background to know that exposure to radiation is bad. Yet a new rule coming out of the EPA at the behest of crony interests will increase the amount of radiation we are exposed to. Another rule will increase the amount of mercury we’re exposed to. To protect our health, these rules must be opposed.

The first proposal would expose Americans to more radiation because it limits the studies that the EPA can use to determine what levels of exposure are safe—not just of radiation, but other environmental toxins as well. Experts have maintained there is no harmless dose of radiation.

Yet one of the proponents of this rule, Edward Calabrese, a professor at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst’s School of Public Health, believes that exposure to low doses of radiation is beneficial! It is an extraordinary view that is contradicted by most experts. A leading radiation researcher, Dr. John William Gofman, provided evidence that medical radiation (CAT scans, CT scans, X-rays, etc.) is a necessary co-actor in about 75 percent of recent cases of breast cancer in the United States. (Note that MRIs—magnetic resonance imaging—are generally safer than CAT and CT scans, but can have their own dangers.) A 2007 study from Columbia University estimated that as much as 2 percent of all cancer in the US may be due to radiation from CT scans.

Who benefits from this rule? Hospitals. It is within the capacity of hospitals to use lower-dose radiation when performing CT scans. This can be done through programming computer algorithms into the software that runs the imaging equipment. Since this technology is recent, it is only compatible with newer machines, and there is little incentive for hospitals to replace CT scanners (which can cost up to $2 million) with more advanced models. In fact, the opposite is happening. Hospitals are increasingly buying lower-end CT scanners to keep costs down. And why not, when diagnostic imaging has become a $100 billion-a-year business? Better to simply change the rules so people can be exposed to more radiation than be bothered with patient safety.

Another proposal would expose Americans to more mercury, a potent neurotoxin and one of the most poisonous forms of air pollution. It would bar the EPA, when calculating the cost/benefit of a rule, from taking secondary benefits into account when conducting a cost/benefit analysis. The intent of the change is to provide legal justification to weaken mercury emissions rules. Recall that mercury in any form is toxic. Organic mercury readily crosses the blood-brain barrier and damages developing nervous tissue.

Although mercury is first emitted into the air as a metal, it settles in the beds of waterways where it is converted by bacteria into methylmercury. Methylmercury accumulates in the bodies of fish and other wildlife. Pregnant women who eat contaminated fish put their fetuses at risk. Children are at the greatest risk, as exposure to methylmercury can impact cognitive thinking, memory, attention, language, motor skills, and spatial skills.

This is cronyism 101: special interests using the power of the federal government to change the rules in a way that benefits them while causing harm to everybody else. We cannot let them get away with it.

Action Alert! Write to Congress and the EPA opposing these two proposals. Please send your message immediately.

5G Explained By Researcher Arthur Firstenberg: Be Forewarned

5GBy Catherine J. Frompovich

Taos, New Mexico, August 12, 2018

An all-day symposium on 5G was held in Taos, New Mexico on Sunday, August 12, 2018. Arthur Firstenberg discussed the history, science, and description of 5G, including 5G from satellites in space, and its expected effects on all living things.

Click on this link to access Arthur Firstenberg’s 34:23 minutes of amazing facts about the relatively unknown and probably deliberately-withheld information about cell phones, cell towers, the inordinate push for 5G rollout and the emerging data via independent research regarding adverse health effects from 5G millimeter wave radiation streaming down from thousands of ionosphere-placed satellites, plus 5G cell towers parked outside your homes, e.g., front doors or bedroom windows, with your not being able to protest them, nor have them removed!

We did not evolve with microwaves; they are foreign to us.

After listening to Arthur’s remarkable knowledge based upon decades-long research after his having been forced to leave medical school as a result of becoming electromagnetically sensitive,  cell phone users and ‘smart’ technology addicts ought to realize there is a ‘universe’ of unknowns regarding human health, environmental impacts and other damaging issues that will materialize as a result of 5G not being studied carefully and fully, but being fast-tracked by the inordinate use of devices we lived without until less than 25 years ago,plus a restrained non-disclosure of 5G capabilities, which the U.S. military uses as “directed energy weapons” [1-2].

Fox News Admits Government Using Lasers – Directed Energy Weapons

Statistically, electromagnetic hypersensitivity is a global health problem, which will increase exponentially when there are 20,000 satellites sending down millimeter wave frequencies that no one really knows neither how to deal with nor how to protect you from their negative health impacts.

“Tinfoil hats” will be of NO help!

There will be nowhere to hide or to find relief from millimeter frequencies research has shown will make our bodies feel like we have perpetual horrible sunburn and activate our sweat glands to work overtime, plus induce severe eye damage.

Are those currently ‘anonymous’ health risk factors for microwave tech users really worth cell phone and microwave use polluting the Planet, humankind and the environment?

There’s the greater possibility of everyone probably contracting some form of cancer, since microwaves break DNA strands—a cause of cancer.  Neither the human body, nor anything else on Planet Earth, has been subjected to man-made microwaves in the millimeter ranges of 24 GHz and upward toward 90 GHz.

Remember, one GHz is equivalent to one BILLION Hertz (frequency oscillations of energy per SECOND).

Now, do the math and try to envision how your body will react to gajillions of such frequency oscillations hitting it every second of the day—just to be able to play a game on a ‘smart’ device.

Defunct Nuclear Power Plant On California Coast Is A “Fukushima Waiting To Happen”

By Carey Wedler

A nuclear power plant in Southern California that was shut down in 2012 continues to leak radioactive material and poses a threat to nearby communities.

The aging San Onofre, located in San Clemente, CA, was shut down in 2012 amid a leak that occurred due to malpractice. According to a report released in 2016, the plant “operated the reactor outside the allowable limits for pressure and temperature, causing the radiation leak that shut down the facility for good,” the San Diego Tribune noted. The shutdown also launched extensive investigations that implicated both the power company and state regulators.

Though the plant is out of operation, it still stores 3.6 million pounds of lethal radioactive waste, and according to a worker who blew the whistle on the plant just last week, a near catastrophe just occurred. As local outlet the Dana Pointer reported, plant worker David Fritch explained what happened at a public meeting:

On 3 August 2018, a 100-ton canister filled with highly radioactive nuclear waste was being ‘downloaded’ into a temporary transport carrier to be moved a few hundred yards from inside the plant to a storage silo buried near the world-famous San Onofre beach. As the thin-walled canister was being lowered into the transport cask, it snagged on a guide ledge four feet from the top. Crane operators were unaware that the canister had stopped descending and the rigging went completely slack, leaving the full weight of the heavy canister perched on that ledge by about a quarter-inch.

Had the ledge not held for the hour or more it took workers to realize and address the error, the thin-walled canister of highly toxic nuclear waste would have fallen 18 feet to the ground below.

Each canister reportedly has as much radiation as was released during the infamous Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

Fritch says the staff is too small — and also undertrained. According to an article published in the Los Angeles Times this week by Steve Chapple, an author, journalist, and fellow at the Samuel Lawrence Foundation:

The idea is to bury the spent fuel on site, about 100 feet from the ocean and just a few feet above the water table. Edison has already begun transferring the waste from cooling pools into specially designed steel canisters. The containers are prone to corrosion and cracking, and cannot be monitored or repaired. Work crews even discovered a loose bolt inside one of the canisters earlier this year.

As ocean levels keep rising, Chapple says, seawater will come closer and closer to the canisters. Further, “if hairline cracks or pinholes in the containers were to let in even a little bit of air, it could make the waste explosive.”

Further, San Onofre is located directly on an earthquake fault line in an area with a record of tsunamis.

San Juan Capistrano Councilwoman Pam Patterson told President Trump at a roundtable discussion in May that San Onofre is a “Fukushima waiting to happen.” She also expressed concern that the facility, which is a no-fly zone but secured mainly by armed guards, could be a target of a terror attack, noting that terrorists targeted nuclear power plants in addition to the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

Any time of disaster would have far-reaching effects. Shortly after the plant shut down, former prime minister of Japan, Naoto Kan testified in San Diego, noting that during the Fukushima meltdown, he was prepared to evacuate not just Tokyo, but regions as far as 160 miles from the plant. Downtown Los Angeles is only 62 miles away from San Onofre and 50 miles from San Diego. Worse, there are no state or federal evacuation plans in the event of a catastrophe.

Chapple says that while solutions include moving the waste to a location 80 feet higher than the current plant, which is by the beach, or “maintain a cooling pool on site for emergency transfer efforts in the event of a cracked canister or terrorist attack,” these are all short-term solutions. As of last year, Edison was working on a plan to bury the nuclear waste, but Chapple believes the only way to truly resolve the problem is for Edison to develop storage technology that is not prone to severe leaks.

Though Edison has started that process, earlier this year San Onofre officials found a defect in the design created by Holtec, a contractor whose workers were responsible for the accident earlier this month.

The Importance of Iodine for a Healthy Thyroid

iodineBy Dr. Edward F. Group

Iodine is an essential nutrient, meaning that the human body requires it for many essential functions but cannot synthesize it on its own. Without enough iodine, the thyroid gland cannot produce the thyroid hormones that regulate growth, metabolism and other important processes in the body. When that happens, energy levels plummet, hormones become imbalanced, and physical and emotional states are affected. Here we’ll take a closer look at everything you need to know about iodine and its special relationship with the thyroid.

Why Is Iodine Essential for Your Thyroid?

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped endocrine gland situated at the front of your neck below the larynx (voice box). Dubbed the “master gland,” your thyroid plays a critical role in your health. The thyroid gland needs iodine to manufacture thyroid hormones, most notably triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). The shortened names refer to the number of iodine molecules these hormones contain, T3 has three iodine molecules T4 has four. T3 and T4 regulate your body’s metabolism. Heart, brain, and muscle function all depend on thyroid hormones like T3 and T4.

Iodine and Thyroid Disorders

According to the American Thyroid Association, roughly 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease, and about 12 percent of the total US population can expect thyroid disease to arise sometime during their lifetime. For those currently afflicted with a thyroid disorder, more than half aren’t aware of it.[1]

Iodine and Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism refers to an underactive thyroid that does not produce enough thyroid hormones. Nearly five percent of the U.S. population over twelve years of age has this endocrine disorder, with a significantly higher incidence in women than in men and people over the age of 60.[2] Symptoms, which may be mild at the onset, include[2]:

  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Intolerance to cold temperatures
  • Brittle nails
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Goiter (swelling of the thyroid gland)
  • Low blood pressure
  • Elevated cholesterol

Without intervention, symptoms may later progress to include:

  • Irregular menstrual periods
  • Puffy face, hands or feet
  • Impaired hearing
  • Hoarseness
  • Dry skin and hair
  • Thinning hair

While genetic factors, congenital disabilities, autoimmune disorders such as Hashimoto’s disease, thyroid surgery, radiation treatment, pregnancy, or the long-term use of certain medications can also cause hypothyroidism, iodine deficiency is the most common cause throughout the world.[3, 4, 5]

Where iodine-rich foods are widely available, the most common cause of primary hypothyroidism is autoimmune thyroiditis, an inflammation of the thyroid gland.[5] Secondary hypothyroidism is the term used to refer to an underactive thyroid due to the failure of the pituitary gland to signal thyroid hormone production through the release of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).[6]

Iodine and Hyperthyroidism

An overactive thyroid causes hyperthyroidism. With this condition, the thyroid releases excess thyroxine (T4), leading to a metabolic imbalance. Less than two percent of the U.S. population has this condition. Women are 2-10 times more likely to develop hyperthyroidism than men. Individuals over the age of 60 are also at increased risk, as well as people with type I diabetes, adrenal insufficiency, thyroiditis, ovarian or testicular cancer, a family history of thyroid disease, or pernicious anemia due to a deficiency or malabsorption of vitamin B-12.[7, 8] The most common cause of hyperthyroidism in the US is, however, Graves’ disease, an autoimmune condition that occurs 7-8 times more frequently in women than in men.[9]

Because thyroxine regulates metabolism and how the body uses energy in virtually every cell in the body, symptoms that are likely to present early on include fatigue, nervousness, increased appetite, irregular or rapid heartbeat, difficulty sleeping, mood swings, trembling, muscle weakness and unexplained weight loss.[7, 8] Other symptoms of an overactive thyroid include:

  • Goiter
  • Menstrual disorders
  • Flushing of the skin
  • Intolerance to heat
  • Diarrhea
  • Hair loss
  • Protruding eyes

Left unchecked, hyperthyroidism may increase the risk of heart disease, stroke or osteoporosis. Hyperthyroidism can also cause Graves’ ophthalmopathy, a condition that may result in eye pain, light sensitivity, double vision and, in rare cases, loss of vision.[7]

For people with hyperthyroidism, iodine reduces hormonal secretion, although scientists do not yet understand precisely how or why.[10] Studies found that injections of iodine in hyperthyroid patients successfully slowed down thyroxine production.[11] Sometimes radioactive iodine is used in severe cases.[7] Treatment depends on how severe the condition has become so always consult your healthcare provider for guidance.

How Much Iodine Do I Need?

For healthy individuals, the amount of iodine you need each day depends on your age and is measured in micrograms (mcg). According to the Office of Dietary Supplements of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the daily recommended amount of iodine in micrograms (mcg) is as follows:[12]

  • Infants birth-6 months:  110 mcg (if not breastfeeding)
  • Infants 7-12 months:  130 mcg (if not breastfeeding)
  • 1-8 years:  90 mcg (if not breastfeeding)
  • 9-13 years:  120 mcg
  • Teens >14 and adults:  150 mcg
  • Pregnant women:  220 mcg
  • Breastfeeding women:  290 mcg

Given the range of critical functions that iodine supports, many healthcare specialists believe that these recommendations are too low. Note that if you have a thyroid condition, whether hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, your healthcare provider’s specific recommendations for iodine intake may vary from these standard recommendations. In some cases, taking iodine can worsen your condition so be sure to check with your provider.

How Iodine Deficiency Affects the Thyroid

Iodine deficiency is a serious issue and the number one cause of preventable disabilities in the world. The World Health Organization estimates that around 1 billion people will suffer from some form of health issue due to a lack of iodine in the diet, and approximately 40% of the world’s population is at risk for iodine deficiency.[13, 14, 15] Although table salt has been iodized since 1924, iodine deficiency is rising again in the Western world. A 1998 report found that iodine deficiencies had increased in the United States during the previous 20 years, likely due to dietary changes.[16]

Insufficient iodine intake directly affects the thyroid since T3 and T4 hormones require this essential mineral. If you do not have enough iodine, you can not produce enough of these two thyroid hormones. These iodine-containing hormones are used for brain, heart, muscle, and bone maintenance and functioning, as well as metabolism – turning food nutrients into the energy needed for the body and its organs to work properly.

How Do I Know if I am Iodine Deficient?

While thyroid function is easily measured, there is no specific blood test to determine how much iodine is circulating in your body. However, since the kidneys eliminate iodine, healthcare providers can assess iodine intake by measuring its concentration in urine.[13] Doctors can conduct blood tests for levels of thyroid hormone and thyroid-stimulating antibody immunoglobulin (TSI) levels. An iodine deficiency is suspected when thyroid hormones fall below a normal range. The appearance of a goiter also indicates either a deficiency or overabundance of iodine.

Iodine, the Thyroid, and Pregnancy

During pregnancy, elevated levels of estrogen and human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) hormones trigger an increased release of thyroid hormones, which are required for the baby’s proper brain and nervous system development. Rarely, pregnancy-induced Graves’ disease will send the thyroid into overdrive, leading to hyperthyroidism. Symptoms include fatigue, difficulty sleeping, and irritability and physicians and pregnant women often overlook them as normal pregnancy concerns. Hyperthyroidism during pregnancy can lead to high blood pressure (preeclampsia), anemia, low birth weight and other conditions.[17]

Hyperthyroidism can also occur after giving birth. Also, thyroid inflammation, or postpartum thyroiditis, may occur after childbirth and trigger hyperthyroidism, especially in women with type I diabetes.[17] Fatigue and mood swings are often attributed to postpartum blues and ignored, so if these symptoms persist, be sure to contact your healthcare provider.

Sources of Iodine

If you want to ensure you get adequate iodine, it can be obtained from food or supplements. Iodine is also present in iodized table salt.

Iodine in Food

There are many iodine-rich foods. Shellfish and saltwater fish, such as tuna, are excellent sources of this trace mineral. Seaweed, namely nori, kelp, and dulse are high in iodine.[13] Eggs and meat also contain iodine.

Dairy products made from cow’s milk, including yogurt, cheese, and ice cream, contain iodine foods, although by accident as well as by design. Many dairy farmers use an iodine-containing saline solution to clean the cow’s teats and collection equipment that can find its way into milk.[18] Farmers also feed dairy cows grains that contain iodine.

Iodine occurs naturally in fruits and vegetables as a result of being taken up through the soil. However, its concentration in plants depends most on the region in which the produce was grown and the iodine content of that particular region’s soil.

Iodine in Salt

Iodized salt usually contains potassium iodide in the range of 76mcg per ¼ teaspoon of salt, as well as 580mg of sodium. However, because table salt carries health concerns, I recommend Himalayan crystal salt, which has variable levels of iodine, though it is not added unnaturally as iodized salt is. Be aware that processed foods, such as canned soups and vegetables, or packaged frozen meals, rarely contain iodized salt.

Iodine Supplements

To ensure a regular and consistent supply of iodine, many people consider an iodine supplement to be among the most important of nutritional supplements. There are a few different forms, such as potassium iodide and sodium iodide.

I recommend nascent iodine, also known as nano-colloidal iodine or atomic iodine. The latter name refers to the incomplete number of electrons in its structure, resulting in the ability to hold an electromagnetic charge. The term “nascent” means new, freshly made, and applies to this form of supplement because it is produced via an electrolytic process. This proprietary method ensures a consumable form of iodine that the body readily absorbs and uses to maintain optimal iodine levels and to support thyroid health. Another distinction about this form of iodine supplement is that it is a mono-elemental, meaning that it is not bound to other elements (potassium iodide contains potassium and iodine), which makes it easily recognized and used by the body.

New Study Links Cellphone Radiation to Heart and Brain Tumors

cell phone towers and tumorsBy Dr. Joseph Mercola

Mounting evidence suggests electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation from cellphones can trigger abnormal cell growth and cancer.1,2 As early as 2011, the evidence was strong enough for the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the cancer research arm of the World Health Organization, to declare cellphones a Group 2B “possible carcinogen.”Now, two government-funded studies4 bring renewed attention to this link.5,6,7,8

The $25 million research conducted by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) — an interagency research program started by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in 1978 and now housed at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) — includes two separate studies: one on mice and one on rats. The studies, in which 3,000 animals were exposed to the type of radiation emitted by 2G and 3G cellphones, are said to be the most extensive to date.

Cellphone Radiation Linked to Brain and Heart Tumors in Male Rats

The researchers found male rats were more likely to develop heart tumors, while female rats and newborns exposed to high levels of radiation during pregnancy and lactation were more likely to have low body weight. DNA damage and damage to heart tissue was also observed in both male and female rats, but not mice.

Other types of tumors did occur in both types of animals, though, including brain, prostate, liver and pancreatic tumors. According to the researchers, if these results can be confirmed, then cellphone radiation may indeed be a “weak” carcinogen.

The animals in these studies were exposed to cellphone radiation for nine hours a day for two years (basically the full life span of a rat). According to the researchers, this level of exposure is far greater than what humans are exposed to, making it difficult to extrapolate the impact cellphone radiation might have on humans.

Personally, I disagree with this view, as many people, especially the younger generation, have their cellphones turned on and near their body 24/7. Many are literally sleeping with their phone beneath their pillow. Unless your phone is in a faraday bag, airplane mode or turned off completely, it is still emitting radiation, so you’re still exposing yourself to microwave radiation even when you’re not talking on the phone. I believe the fact that this reality is completely ignored is a serious oversight.

As noted by The New York Times,9 the heart tumors (malignant schwannomas) found in male rats are “similar to acoustic neuromas, a benign tumor in people involving the nerve that connects the ear to the brain, which some studies have linked to cellphone use.” The scientists also expressed surprise at the finding of DNA damage, as the conventional belief is that nonionizing radiofrequency radiation cannot harm DNA.

“We don’t feel like we understand enough about the results to be able to place a huge degree of confidence in the findings,” John Bucher, Ph.D.,10 senior scientist at the National Toxicology Program told reporters. Bucher also noted that “The patterns of damage to brain tissues in these animals are not particularly consistent with tumor outcomes.” To me, this statement offers no comfort whatsoever. Brain damage is brain damage, even if it doesn’t specifically lead to cancer!

Brain Tumors Are Not the Most Pressing Concern

In fact, the primary hazard of cellphone radiation is not brain cancer per se but rather systemic cellular and mitochondrial damage, which is harmful to health in general and can contribute to any number of health problems and chronic diseases. An estimated 80,000 U.S. men, women and children are diagnosed with a brain tumor each year.11 Meanwhile, 787,000 people die each year from heart disease.12 The relative rarity of brain cancer may lead you to believe that your cellphone is safe.

After all, when 91 percent of the adult population of the U.S. carries a cellphone13 and less than 0.02 percent14 develop a brain tumor, it may appear that using a cellphone is benign. The evidence shows it’s not. Even these NIH studies reveal DNA and cellular damage, even though the researchers insist there’s no explanation as to why. This, despite the fact that a number of other scientists and EMF specialists have presented evidence for a number of different mechanisms of harm.

For example, research15 by Allan Frey, Office of Naval Research, reveals cellphone radiation weakens cell membranes and your blood-brain barrier. Some of his experiments showed that dye injected into animals was able to penetrate into the brain when exposed to pulsed digital signals from microwaves. This research was done in the 1960s, before the introduction of cellphones. At the time, radar and microwaves were the main focus.

Today, these findings are particularly notable since cellphones are held close to the brain. The take-home message is that radiation from your cellphone weakens your blood-brain barrier, allowing toxins in your blood to enter your brain, and into the cells of your entire body. But that’s not all. Following I will summarize evidence produced by a number of other experts in the field, who claim to have identified one or more mechanisms of harm.

Same Data, Different Interpretations

Before I get into the mechanisms, it’s worth noting that when partial results from the NTP’s animal studies were initially released two years ago, the findings were followed by a public health warning. In fact, the preliminary findings were released early because the researchers deemed it too important to wait.

Christopher Portier, Ph.D., retired head of the NTP who was involved in the launch of the study, insisted the findings showed clear causation. “I would call it a causative study, absolutely,” he told Scientific American.16 “They controlled everything in the study. It’s [the cancer] because of the exposure.”

In November 2016, David McCormick, Ph.D., director of the Illinois Institute of Technology Research Institute where the study was conducted, was equally clear, telling reporters,17 “What we are saying here is that based on the animal studies, there is a possible risk cellphone RF [radio frequency] is potentially carcinogenic in humans. These are uncommon lesions in rodents, so it is our conclusion that they are exposure related.”

As noted by Microwave News,18 while some of the pathology data was updated since the initial release in 2016, the changes are minor. The interpretation, however, has changed rather dramatically. Now, even though the findings haven’t changed, the NTP insists it’s “not a high-risk situation” and that the risk to human health is negligible.

Microwave News lists a number of possible political reasons for the sudden turnaround, including new NTP leadership, the current White House administration’s disdain for science that threatens big business, and the fact that the major telecommunications players today are Apple, Google and Microsoft — all major Wall Street darlings. Whatever the reason, it’s clear the NTP is now downplaying findings that, just two years ago, were considered of significant importance for public health.

Please Write the US Government to Express Your Concerns

Remember that you have power and can make a difference. You have done it in the past and can do it again. Let’s rise up in mass and express the massive whitewashing that is being catalyzed by the telecommunications industry to suppress the truth and expose you and your family to dangerous levels of EMF so they can increase their profits.

You can simply send an email by MARCH 12 to Canden Byrd ntp-meetings@icf.com. I am confident that with your support we can start to make a difference.

EMFs Produce Potent Oxidant Stressors

Download Interview Transcript

Martin Pall, Ph.D., has identified and published research describing the likely molecular mechanisms of how EMFs from cellphones and wireless technologies damage plants, animals and humans.19,20,21,22 The process begins when low?frequency microwave radiation activates voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs)23 — channels in the outer membrane of your cells. Once activated, the VGCCs open up, allowing an abnormal influx of calcium ions into the cell.

This increased intracellular calcium and the accompanying increase in calcium signaling appears to be responsible for a majority of the damage that occurs.

The excess calcium activates nitric oxide, and while nitric oxide has many health benefits, massively excessive nitric oxide reacts with superoxide, producing peroxynitrites, extremely potent oxidant stressors believed to be a root cause for many of today’s chronic diseases.24 Nitric oxide is the only molecule in your body produced at high enough concentrations to outcompete other molecules for superoxide and is a precursor for peroxynitrite.25

Inside your body, peroxynitrites modify tyrosine molecules in proteins to create a new substance, nitrotyrosine and nitration of structural protein.26 Changes from nitration are visible in human biopsy of atherosclerosis, myocardial ischemia, inflammatory bowel disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and septic lung disease.27

Significant oxidative stress from peroxynitrites may also result in single-strand breaks of DNA.28 This pathway of oxidative destruction — triggered by low?frequency radiation emitted from mobile devices — may partially explain the unprecedented growth rate of chronic disease since 1990,29 and is a far greater concern than brain tumors.

EMFs More Likely to Cause Neurological Dysfunction, Heart Problems and Infertility Than Brain Cancer

According to Pall’s theory, the physical locations where VGCCs are the densest are indicative of the diseases you might expect from chronic excessive exposure to EMFs. As it turns out, the highest density of VGCCs are found in your nervous system, the pacemaker in your heart and in male testes. As a result, EMFs are likely to contribute to neurological and neuropsychiatric problems, heart and reproductive problems.

Indeed, studies dating back to the 1950s and ‘60s show the nervous system is the organ most sensitive to EMFs. Some of these studies show massive changes in the structure of neurons, including cell death and synaptic dysfunction. When the VGCCs are activated in the brain they release neurotransmitters and neuroendocrine hormones.

In animals exposed to EMFs there are massive, cumulative effects in the brain. Genetic polymorphism studies also show that elevated VGCC activity in certain parts of the brain produces a variety of neuropsychiatric effects.

Hence, consequences of chronic EMF exposure to the brain include anxietydepressionautism and Alzheimer’s disease, which Pall details in a 2016 paper.30 Research also suggests excessive EMF exposure is contributing to reproductive problems in both sexes.

Most recently, researchers showed prenatal exposure to power-frequency fields can nearly triple a pregnant woman’s risk of miscarriage.31 According to lead author and senior research scientist at Kaiser Permanente’s research division, Dr. De-Kun Li,32 “This study provides fresh evidence, directly from a human population, that magnetic field exposure in daily life could have adverse health impacts,” adding his findings “should bring attention to this potentially important environmental hazard to pregnant women.”

According to Li, there are at least six other studies, in addition to two of his own, showing this link.33,34,35,36,37 EMF exposure may also play a significant role in testicular cancer and male infertility. Studies have linked low-level electromagnetic radiation exposure from cellphones to an 8 percent reduction in sperm motility and a 9 percent reduction in sperm viability.38,39 Wi-Fi equipped laptop computers have also been linked to decreased sperm motility and an increase in sperm DNA fragmentation after just four hours of use.40

Excessive Charges Alter Cellular Function

Alasdair Philips, founder of the Power Watch41 — a British organization committed to uncovering EMFs’ effects on health — believes there’s even more to it than what Pall has discovered. He references Gerald Pollack’s work on the fourth phase of water, so-called exclusion zone (EZ) water, which is the kind of water you have in your body.

It’s a completely different model of how the cell functions,” Philips says. “The cell functions as a gel, if you like, held together by electric charge. The calcium-gated channel is part of that, but actually, it isn’t a membrane with a few things sticking through it.

It’s actually … electric charges on molecules. Yes, Pall’s [hypothesis] is very important and it’s probably one of the key mechanisms, but there’s a whole lot of things … [T]he cell is just malfunctioning because it’s got so much charge… [I]t’s an enormous incoming stream of electrons, and that changes completely what the cells are doing.”

EMFs Impair Proton Flow and ATP Production

Paul Héroux, Ph.D., professor of toxicology and health effects of electromagnetism at the faculty of medicine at McGill University in Montreal, also stresses the impact EMFs have on the water in your body. The mechanism of action proposed by Héroux involves the enzyme ATP synthase, which passes currents of protons through a water channel (similar to current passing through a wire).

The protons have to go through about 20 molecules of water to get through this channel. ATP synthase is extremely ancient and common to all living systems. It basically generates energy in the form ATP from ADP, using this flow of protons.

Magnetic fields can change the transparency of the water channel to protons, thereby reducing the current. As a result, you get less ATP, which can have system wide consequences, from promoting chronic disease and infertility to lowering intelligence. Héroux explains:

“When you impair the flow of protons to ATP synthase, you increase mitochondrial membrane polarization … If you increase the polarization of the mitochondria by 14 percent, you will have a 70 percent increase in the reactive oxygen species coming out of complex one, which is the leading edge of the oxidative phosphorylation chain.

Essentially, my explanation is that by physical action on water, you can change the transparency of the most critical enzyme in the human body, modulate the amount of ATP, increase the escape of electrons from complex one; thereby explaining practically all of the observations related to EMF. Of course, the moment ATP is perturbed in a cell, there are calcium signals being emitted all over the place, because calcium is possibly the most critical intracellular messenger.”

While Pall’s work focuses on EMFs’ effects on calcium ions, Héroux focuses on its impact on electrons and protons, which are far more sensitive to magnetic fields. But although the mechanisms of action are slightly different, the end result is more or less identical and hinges on the fact that EMFs increase oxidative stress and decrease ATP.

In a nutshell, what we’re talking about here is the creation of excess oxidative stress, which in turn can damage cell membranes and proteins, and break DNA bonds. Interviews with Philips and Héroux should be released shortly, so keep your eyes open for them to learn more.

Protecting Yourself From Excessive EMF is Important for Optimal Health

As you can see, a number of different mechanisms of harm have already been proposed, so the claim that there’s “no evidence” of harm, and that scientists have “no idea” of how harmful effects such as those found by the NIH might occur, simply isn’t true. There’s even evidence suggesting that radiation affects your microbiome, turning what might otherwise be beneficial microbes pathogenic. This too can have far-ranging health effects, since we now know your microbiome plays an important role in health.

France is imposing a complete ban on cellphone use by students during school hours.42 The ban, which takes effect in September 2018, will affect primary and secondary schools. Students will not be permitted to use their phones even at breaks, lunch or between classes. California also recently issued consumer guidance on how to lower cellphone radiation exposure (after initially trying to cover up the hazards).43

There’s no doubt in my mind that EMF exposure is a significant health hazard that needs to be addressed if you’re concerned about your health. Here are several suggestions that will help reduce your EMF exposure:

Connect your desktop computer to the internet via a wired Ethernet connection and be sure to put your desktop in airplane mode. Also avoid wireless keyboards, trackballs, mice, game systems, printers and portable house phones. Opt for the wired versions.
If you must use Wi-Fi, shut it off when not in use, especially at night when you are sleeping. Ideally, work toward hardwiring your house so you can eliminate Wi-Fi altogether. If you have a notebook without any Ethernet ports, a USB Ethernet adapter will allow you to connect to the internet with a wired connection.
Shut off the electricity to your bedroom at night. This typically works to reduce electrical fields from the wires in your wall unless there is an adjoining room next to your bedroom. If that is the case you will need to use a meter to determine if you also need to turn off power in the adjacent room.
Use a battery-powered alarm clock, ideally one without any light. I use a talking clock for the visually impaired.44
If you still use a microwave oven, consider replacing it with a steam convection oven, which will heat your food as quickly and far more safely.
Avoid using “smart” appliances and thermostats that depend on wireless signaling. This would include all new “smart” TVs. They are called smart because they emit a Wi-Fi signal, and unlike your computer, you cannot shut the Wi-Fi signal off. Consider using a large computer monitor as your TV instead, as they don’t emit Wi-Fi.
Refuse smart meters as long as you can, or add a shield to an existing smart meter, some of which have been shown to reduce radiation by 98 to 99 percent.45
Consider moving your baby’s bed into your room instead of using a wireless baby monitor. Alternatively, use a hard-wired monitor.
Replace CFL bulbs with incandescent bulbs. Ideally remove all fluorescent lights from your house. Not only do they emit unhealthy light, but more importantly, they will actually transfer current to your body just being close to the bulbs.
Avoid carrying your cellphone on your body unless in airplane mode and never sleep with it in your bedroom unless it is in airplane mode. Even in airplane mode it can emit signals, which is why I put my phone in a Faraday bag.46
When using your cellphone, use the speaker phone and hold the phone at least 3 feet away from you. Seek to radically decrease your time on the cellphone. I typically use my cellphone less than 30 minutes a month, and mostly when traveling. Instead, use VoIP software phones that you can use while connected to the internet via a wired connection.

One Patient’s Experience….No Chemo, No Radiation

Tulsa, Oklahoma– Meet Ryan Luelf, a 35 year old father of three, who a little over a year ago was diagnosed with Stage 4 B-Cell non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

It all started with a string of mind shattering headaches, Ryan says, followed by swollen lymph nodes and horrible night sweats that made life unbearable.

Nevertheless, Ryan “toughed” it out, like he always did, attributing the symptoms to perhaps a virus.

4 months would pass until he would seek medical advice.

On 9/16/2015 the headaches became so unbearable that Ryan was crippled with pain and nothing would bring relief. Upon a friend’s persistence Ryan began medical evaluation and MRIs of the brain, neck and abdomen.

The scans revealed “a bunch of lymph nodes lighting up all over the place in the neck and abdomen MRIs”

Ryan had Stage 4 B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and he was devastated.

Who would be there to take care of his wife? (sweet hearts since high school)

Who would be there to take care of his children?

Who would be there to provide for his family spiritually?

Refusing this death sentence, Ryan knew that things had to change.

Chemotherapy was always out of the question for him, and Ryan would not bet his life on what he refers to as “false treatments that have not worked for a hundred years”. In fact, Ryan’s own doctor stated that he had a higher chance of dying from chemotherapy than the lymphoma in the next 6 months.

Immediately he mapped out a holistic cancer survival strategy that he could implement right away.

He would be there for wife.

He would be there for his kids.

He would be there to provide for his family spiritually.

As Ryan says, “Cancer picked on the wrong dude.”

Fast Food Junkie Gets His Nutrition In Order

The first thing the Ryan changed was his eating habits. A lifelong fast food junkie, who survived of a steady diet of hamburger, french fries, hot dogs, cheese pizza, tacos, sweet tea, and sugar…never touching a vegetable.

All that was out the window and Ryan and his wife, Caroline, vigorously began researching the impact diet would have on his diagnosis.

Ryan’s research led him to investigate the power of the Gerson Therapy. An all natural protocol developed my Dr. Max Gerson in that utilizes an organic, plant-based diet, with raw juices, coffee enemas to strengthen the immune system and re-ignite the body’s ability to heal itself. While some patients were having success with Gerson alone, it became apparent to Ryan that he would need more than food to heal his cancer…

There were alternative cancer treatments out there that looked promising, but no matter how hard Ryan looked, they were not available in the United States.

Why was trying to heal his body so hard?

The Cancer Vaccine You Didn’t Know About

One such treatment that Ryan had been researching was Coley’s Fluid, also called Coley’s Vaccine, or Coley’s Toxins.

Invented in the late 19th century by cancer surgeon William B. Coley, the fluid contains bacterial toxins that literally infect the body and cause a fever, stimulating the immune system to attack malignant tumors, much like a vaccine but without any additives or adjuncts.

After 1965, when the American Cancer Society classified the it as an “unproven method,” Coley’s Vaccine became next to impossible to get in the US… but there was hospital in Mexico that had the Coley’s fluid and had been treating patients for over 38 years…

An Answer at CHIPSA Hospital In Mexico

The Centro Hospitalario Internacional del Pacifico S.A., or CHIPSA, is a cancer-research hospital in Tijuana that specializes in alternative medicine and advanced immunotherapy, including Coley’s Vaccine and other cancer treatments that Ryan had been researching. They have been doing this for over 38 years.

CHIPSA Hospital Cancer

In fact the hospital was founded by Charlotte Gerson, the daughter of Max Gerson, the man who invented the Gerson Therapy!

According to a study done at CHIPSA, 60 percent of end-stage melanoma patients who followed the hospital’s treatment plan live at least five years.

Would Ryan have similar success with Lymphoma?

Ryan arrived to CHIPSA hospital and late Monday night on November 5, 2015 and immediately met with the head dotor, Dr. Lopez and went over over a few things with us and then to bed.

Tuesday morning at 7am sharp it all started…

Here Are The Treatments That Ryan Did

Gerson Therapy Immuno-Nutrition

Initially Developed by German born Dr. Max Gerson in the 1920’s for the treatment of tuberculosis and headaches, Gerson Therapy was applied towards cancer patients in 1928. It is a specific diet-based immunological detoxification and nutrition protocol that is the foundation of the treatments CHIPSA.

The diet includes raw and cooked foods in its three daily vegan meals, extraordinary amounts of unaltered foods are consumed as well as the intravenous inclusion of vitamin drips.

Additionally patients can expect anywhere from 12-15 raw juices a day, prepared specific organic fruits and vegetables. These fruits and vegetable are harvested for their enormous quantities of phytochemicals currently under study worldwide for exciting anticancer and health promoting properties, “super charging” the patient’s immune system.

Coley’s Mixed Vaccine

Coley’s Mixed Vaccine is comprised of a sterile(dead) mixture of gram-positive Streptococcus pyogenes and gram-negative Serratia marcescens bacteria. By introducing the killed bacteria into the body, Dr. Coley could mimic an immune response without the risk of infection.

Since cancer cells were formed undetected, the goal is to “unlock” the body’s immune system so that it can identify and kill the cancer cells.

    • Coley Vaccine therapy is administered about 2-3 times per week at a dose which achieves a body temperature of between 39.5 °C to 41 °C (approximately 103 °C to 106 °F), while being monitored by qualified medical staff.
    • The exact number of treatments per week may vary depending on each individual patient and other circumstances.
    • Patients generally receive one infusion per day.
    • About 5-6 hours of treatment are required for each treatment day.
    • Vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, temperature) are constantly monitored by professional and experienced medical staff.
    • Coley Vaccine has a very long and safe history of use.
    • Generally patients experience improved well being after each treatment.
    • This treatment is ideally used in conjunction with other immunotherapies, such as Gerson Therapy, Dendritic Cells Vaccine, and Autologous Cell Vaccine.

Note: CHIPSA is the only licensed hospital facility treating with the Coley’s Therapy toxins in North America.

Coffee Enemas

Colon therapies and enemas can improve gut mobility and the frequency of bowel movements. Both assist in removing the toxic encapsulation of mucoid plaque stuck to the colon walls and further stimulate the removal of parasites from the gut.

This is essential to the success of the Gerson Therapy. The intense cleansing effect of the Gerson protocol releases toxins that have been built up over a life time into the blood stream and although the liver can purify the blood the accumulation of such toxins can be an overburden.

The enemas work by reaching the liver through a vein in the colon that goes directly to the liver. There the coffee works with the liver to force bile dump and empty the stored toxins. During an average treatment the blood will be cycled 5 times.

Autologus Tumor Cell Vaccine

The Autologous tumor vaccine is one of the most potent forms of immunotherapy that harness the body’s own immune system to fight cancer.

The vaccine is cultured from the patient’s own blood that represents his/her own unique internal bodily environment. The preparation follows procedures that favor the development of antigenic peptides and other immunogenic compounds aiming to enhance the body’s own cancer fighting mechanisms.

Clinical research suggests that the Autologous Cell Vaccine works in a very complex way at the levels of cell-mediated and humoral immunity, and stimulates the formation and activation of T-helper cells. It is cultured from the patient’s own blood that represents his/her own unique internal bodily environment. The preparation follows procedures that favor the development of antigenic peptides and other immunogenic compounds aiming to enhance the body’s immune functions.

The vaccine is sterile. Since it is custom prepared from the patient’s own blood, side effects typically associated with other treatments are not experienced. A slight rise in temperature, fatigue, and tenderness in the tumor area are possible for a period of 6 to 48 hours after administration.

Experience has that the effectiveness of the vaccine, or of any vaccine, is enhanced when it is administered within a comprehensive series of integrative immunotherapy and immuno-nutrition protocols.

Hyrdotherapy Hyperthermia

Hyperthermia (also called thermal therapy or thermotherapy) is a type of cancer treatment in which body tissue is exposed to high temperatures (up to 113°F).

Research has shown that high temperatures can damage and kill cancer cells, usually with minimal injury to normal tissues by killing cancer cells and damaging proteins and structures within those cells, hyperthermia may shrink tumors.

Numerous clinical trials have studied hyperthermia in combination with radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy.

These studies have focused on the treatment of many types of cancer, including sarcoma, melanoma and cancers of the head and neck, brain, lung, esophagus, breast, bladder, rectum, liver, appendix, cervix, and peritoneal lining (mesothelimoa). Many of these studies, but not all, have shown a significant reduction in tumor size when hyperthermia is combined with other treatments.

Vitamin B-17

Amygdalin or Vitamin B17,  therapy is one of the most popular and best known alternative cancer treatments. It is very simple to use and is very effective if used in high enough doses and if the product is of high quality and if it is combined with an effective cancer diet and key supplements like the Gerson Immuno-nutrition protocols.

Vitamin B-17 is the patented drug made from the natural compound amygdalin, found in the seeds of many fruits, such as apricots, plum and peach pits, apple seeds, and quince, as well as in almonds. Laetrile is also known as Amigdalina B-17 or vitamin B17.

Amygdalin contains glucose, benzaldehyde, and cyanide. Cyanide is believed to be the active cancer-toxic ingredient in Laetrile. However, cyanide is toxic to all cells, so Vitamin B-17’s overall toxicity is a concern which is why it MUST be administered in hospital setting and not at home. At CHIPSA each patient’s levels and dosage of Laetrile is custom tailored to their cancer.

In 1924, Vitamin B-17 was synthesized from amygdalin and promoted as a cancer treatment. By 1978, it was estimated that more than 70,000 Americans had tried it—despite its being banned in the US since 1963. Most people obtain Laetrile from Tijuana clinics, as the agent is still legal in Mexico.

Dr. Sigiura’s Research On Vitamin B-17

Dr. Kanematsu Sugiura, spent most of his career at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, authoring more than 250 papers and receiving numerous awards, including the highest honors from the Japan Medical Association for outstanding contributions in cancer research.

While studying Amygdalin, which was previously written off as Dr. Sugiura discovered Vitamin B-17 to have very positive effects in preventing the spread of malignant lung tumors in laboratory mice.

In control groups, which received only plain saline, the lung tumors spread in 80 to 90 percent of the animals. But in those given Vitamin B-17, the tumors spread in only 10 to 20 percent.

Recent studies confirm Dr. Sigiura’s findings:

  • August 2014: In a new German study, amygdalin dose-dependently reduced growth and proliferation of bladder cancer
  • May 2013: Amygdalin inhibits renal fibrosis in chronic kidney disease; researchers conclude it is a “potent antibiotic agent that may have therapeutic potential for patients with fibrotic kidney diseases”
  • February 2013: Amygdalin induces apoptosis in human cervical cancer cells; authors conclude it may offer a new therapeutic option for cervical cancer patients
  • August 2006: Amygdalin also induces apoptosis in human prostate cancer cells
  • February 2003: Amygdalin from Prunus persica seeds (peach pits) shows anti-tumor effects comparable to epigallocatechin gallate in green tea

IV Vitamin C

The use of high dose Vitamin C for cancer mitigation has been studied for years. According to the United States government website on Cancer “Laboratory studies have shown that high doses of vitamin C may slow the growth and spread of prostate, pancreatic, liver, colon, and other types of cancer cells”

The National Institute of Health on Vitamin C…

“Many laboratory studies have been done to find out how high-dose vitamin C may cause the death of cancer cells. The anticancer effect of vitamin C in different types of cancer cells involves a chemical reaction that makes hydrogen peroxide, which may kill cancer cells.

The National Cancer Institute says laboratory studies have shown the following:

  • Treatment with high-dose vitamin C slowed the growth and spread of prostate, pancreatic, liver, colon, malignant mesothelioma, neuroblastoma, and other types of cancer cells.
  • Combining high-dose vitamin C with certain types of chemotherapy may be more effective than chemotherapy alone:
    • Ascorbic acid with arsenic trioxide may be more effective in ovarian cancer
    • Ascorbic acid with gemcitabine may be more effective in pancreatic cancer
    • Ascorbic acid with gemcitabine and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) may be more effective in malignant mesothelioma cells.
  • Another laboratory study suggested that combining high-dose vitamin C with radiation therapy killed more glioblastoma multiformed cells than radiation therapy alone.”

PUVA Photopheresis

Photopheresis, or extracorporeal photoimmune therapy, is a, FDA approved procedure that is used to treat graft versus host disease (GVHD) or cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL).

During photopheresis, blood is taken from the patient’s vein and  separated into its different components: white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets.

Rhite blood cells are treated with a medication called methoxsalen, exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light, and then returned to the patient, along with your other blood cells. These treated cells stimulate the immune system to help fight cancer.

Hyperbaric Oxygen

The use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been approved for over a dozen health conditions such as, carbon monoxide poisoning, gangrene and injuries in which tissues are not getting enough oxygen.

Humans depend upon the consumption of oxygen all the time. Most atmospheric air is comprised of roughly 21% oxygen and, of course, oxygen is necessary for the production of cellular energy within the mitochondria of every cell. The use of pure 100% oxygen in a high pressure atmosphere (HBOT) has been shown to accelerate the healing process.

The hyperbaric chamber has pure oxygen administered at pressures 1.5 – 3 times the normal atmospheric pressure with treatment times ranging from 30-90 minutes. Administering oxygen at higher pressures causes up to 20 times more oxygen to be absorbed by the blood and transferred to injured organs and tissues. This speeds healing and recovery time in addition to other benefits.

“A healthy cell breathes oxygen for energy. A cancer cell shuns oxygen and ferments sugar instead for its energy requirements.” -Science Daily

Essentially cancer cells have a non-oxygen metabolism and have sugar as a preferred source of fuel. By flooding the patient’s blood with oxygen doctors are able to have a safe and non-toxic method for killing cancer cells in addition to all of the other benefits that come with oxygen therapy.

Healing at Home

After Ryan’s 3 week stay at CHIPSA, it would be up to him to continue to strengthen his body and immune system a follow a strict diet and supplementation protocol which included the following:

Supplements: B12 + crude liver extract (daily injection) Niacin Potassium Lugol’s Iodine Acidoll (HCL + Pepsin) Pancreatin (Pancreatic Enzymes) Thyroid Hormone CoQ10 Flaxseed Oil (Organic, Cold Pressed Liquid Form)

Coffee Enemas (continue 5x/day)

13 Juices/Day 3 Gerson approved Vegan Meals/Day.

Vitamin C infusions: 1-2x/week

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT): 2x/week Infrared Sauna (equivalent to hydrotherapy/hyperthermia): at least 1x/week

Chiropractor and Massage

Rituxan

Although Ryan was healing, there was a unusual fluid buildup around his abdomen that was causing a lot of discomfort.

After some careful research, Ryan and his wife looked into immunotherapy drug(not chemotherapy) called Rituxan to his at home protocol to see if it could help.

Rituxan is classified as a monoclonal antibody. Monoclonal antibodies are a relatively new type of “targeted” cancer therapy.

Rituxan is a type of antibody therapy that can be used alone or with chemotherapy. (It) works in different ways to find and attack the cells where cancer starts.

Rituxan targets and attaches to the CD20 protein found on the surface of blood cells with cancer and some healthy blood cells. Once attached to the CD20 protein, Rituxan is thought to work in different ways including:

  1. By helping your own immune system destroy the cancer cells
  2. By destroying the cancer cells on its own

In addition, Rituxan can also harm healthy cells in your body.

What is Rituxan used for?
RITUXAN is a prescription medicine used to treat:

  • Low-grade or follicular CD20-positive non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma as a single-agent therapy in patients whose disease recurred or did not respond to initial treatment.
  • Follicular CD20-positive non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma as an initial treatment with chemotherapy, and in patients whose initial treatment was successful, as a single-agent follow-up therapy.

During the months of May and June 2016, 8 weeks of Rituxan was added alongside Ryan’s immunotherapy and as always a heavy emphasis on a plant based diet. If the Rituxan would prove to be successful, then all of Ryan’s current protocols would be necessary to detox his body of the dead cancer.

Most oncologists in the United States will recommended chemotherapy alongside drugs like Rituxan.

Through more research, Ryan and his wife we found out that Rituxan was in fact approved as a stand alone agent. Even at that Ryan’s oncologist was hesitant to only prescribe immunotherapy he did so with the warning that Rituxan alone may not be enough to cause complete remission.

Ryan and his wife elected not to do any of the chemotherapy drugs because he was already on a very complex integrated immunotherapy protocol.

Ryan’s results on Ritxan has intrigued many of those in the medical community.

In some ways, Ryan has become a case study because Rituxan surpassed expectations as Ryan’s scan showed a complete response even though the cancer had advanced and fluid issues were of big concern as fluid is usually a sign of late stage cancer and compromised organs.

Even though Ryan still had fluid issues, he and his wife believe that it was the integration of his at home protocol of natural and alternative therapies that allowed his body to heal and detoxify itself. Additionally, Rituxan only has the ability to kill certain cancer cells.

  • Rituxan does not have the ability to regenerate the liver.
  • Rituxan did not STOP the fluid issues.
  • Rituxan does not have the ability to reverse eczema, reverse pre-diabetes, reverse high risk for heart disease, reverse hypothyroidism and more.

Ryan Almost One Year Later…

On Tuesday, June 7th, Ryan and his wife Caroline met with his oncologist for the usual monthly follow up appointment and a PET/CT Scan would be ordered to truly see what was going on inside Ryan’s body, and the results were shocking…

In the radiologist’s words: “Complete Resolution in some areas and Near-Complete Resolution in other areas!”

Here’s an image from the scan. The top pair is October 2015 and the bottom pair is June 2016.

Brain: Clear as it has been the past few scans.

Neck and Clavicle Area: There is no more than mild uptake worrisome of malignancy in lymph nodes around the clavicles. This represents complete resolution in the neck area and near-complete resolution in the clavicle. The SUV peaked at 2.5 on one node that is now smaller than the previous scans. The largest nodes previously measured up to 4.3cm, now biggest is 1.3cm. The nodes previously peaked at SUV levels of 5.4 (SUVs of less than 2.5 usually means no malignancy).

Chest: SUV levels peaked at 3.2 down from 6.2. All nodes are smaller or back to normal size. Resolution of most of the chest area and near-resolution of the right and left axillary.

Abdomen and Pelvis: There is no abnormal tracer in the liver, adrenals or spleen to suggest presence of malignancy. This represents resolution since the last scan as the spleen showed SUV uptake of 4.9 and it is now at 1.6. The spleen is currently 14cm where it previously was enlarged up to 20cm at different times (normal is 10-11cm). There was no mention of the liver being enlarged (it had been enlarged up to 24cm previously, normal is under 16cm). A large bulky mass of adenopathy was previously present in the mid abdomen where SUVs peaked at 5.8 and measured 10.5cm x 12.2cm x 14.8cm along with other clusters of adenopathy. In this last scan, the mass had reduced to 7.6cm x 9.8cm x 6.3cm and SUV peaked at 3.3.

There are still some swollen lymph nodes throughout Ryan’s body, especially the abdomen. There is marked reduction on all lymph nodes and others are completely normal. There are still some swollen lymph nodes that do not show malignancy and over time the body will absorb those tumor toxins. The spleen is no longer malignant.

What Does This Mean For Cancer Treatments?

We are not in any way, shape or form, stating that we have a cure for cancer. It’s very common to see alternative practitioners making claims that one substance or “thing” is an all out cure.

We know from our experience in treating cancer for 37 years , that cancer is very complex and always evolving. There is no 100% cure.

What we do know, however, is that CHIPSA has had great success treating many patients like Ryan that were sent home to “die” in their home country because conventional medicine failed them.

We also know, that a 5 year, retrospective Melanoma case study done at our hospital showed a higher success rate treating Melanoma than any treatment available by the establishment. And we do know that many times within a 3-4 week stay, we will see peoples tumor markers be cut in half or go away and large tumors disappear.

We feel that combining Vitamin CK3 with some of our proven immune boosting protocols and our 37 years of research into immune function may allow for some groundbreaking cancer treatments and get us closer to an answer.

If you or someone you love would like to see how or if CHIPSA may have a treatment for your cancer give us a call at 1-855-624-4772. We will schedule you a free 30 minute appointment to talk to one of our doctors.

Data Indicates Cell Phones Expose Consumers To Radiation Levels Higher Than Manufacturers Claim, Says The French Government

By Catherine J. Frompovich

The Environmental Health Trust published “Cell Phone Radiation Scandal: More Exposure Than Manufacturers Claim ‘PhoneGate’ In France, government data release reveals 9 out of 10 phones tested exceed regulatory limits” [1].

The French ANFR published online on June 1, 2017, a listing of cell phone data “details of make, model and test results for each cell phone that was tested, after months of legal action by French physician Dr. Marc Arazi.”

According to Environmental Health Trust,

Popular brands such as Apple, Motorola, Samsung and Nokia were among the cell phone models tested. When tested in contact with the body, some phones have test results as high as triple the manufacturer’s previously reported radiation levels. [1] [CJF emphasis]

Here’s something that for the life of me, I cannot understand parents permitting or allowing their toddlers to play with!

Source [1]

Dr. Arazi replied with the following statement as a result of a French court order to publish the results of cell phone radiation exposure when used next to the human body, as most cell phones are handled, even worn “live” in women’s bras, men’s trouser pants pockets, on belts, or anywhere on the body:

As a physician, I am deeply concerned about what this means for our health and especially the health of our children. People have a right to know that when cell phones are tested in ways people commonly use phones – such as in direct contact with their body – the values exceed current regulatory limits. This is a first victory for transparency in this industry scandal.

Here are Dr. Arazi’s less than 2 minute comments about the French court’s decision on cell phone radiation dangers.

https://youtu.be/1B_H5Og0k-g?

Thank you, courageous and committed, Dr. Marc Arazi!

May you always be held safe from microwave and cell phone industry harms. You had the courage of heart and professional commitment to go where no one would go and, thank God, you prevailed in a court of common sense, and not like the courts, FCC and public utility commissions in the USA when it comes to vested-interest microwave technology pseudoscience! Wake up, USA!

“SAR” levels refer to “Specific Absorption Rates” from electromagnetic energies, e.g., EMFs/RFs/ELFs.

Source [1]

What should be the next logical step regarding microwave emissions, especially in the USA?

Now and as soon as possible, the next and certainly most logical step for protecting human health is to tie into the cell phone and microwave industry deceitful ‘consensus science’ as promoted by industry shills, utility company AMI Smart Meters, which utility companies equate with the safety of cell phones, as I experienced and is documented in the Transcript of my Pro Se hearing and ongoing legalistics involving my refusal of a PECO AMI Smart Meter in what just may be an apparently microwave-industry-lobbyist-run PA PUC of Pennsylvania.

Fix your vision naturally without glasses (Ad)

After the above legally-honest disclosures regarding AMI Smart Meters, then proceed on to Wi-Fi and Gigahertz damage and then on to exposing G5 and Google’s “Wi-Fi in the sky.” Fried brains, anyone?

Is there fine print hiding within your cell phone instructions?

Watch this video to learn what you may not know, or probably refused to find out, regarding cellular and microwave energies.

https://youtu.be/Wm69ik_Qdb8?

Legally, all microwave industry wavelength assaults should be prosecuted for assault and battery, which humans are exposed to unwittingly and deceitfully from thousands upon thousands of cell and mast towers dotting the landscape everywhere.

Medically such wavelengths can cause electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) or idiopathic environmental intolerance (IEI), the term medical doctors use to diagnose, if they are astute and honest enough not to drink and accept the microwave industry’s “cool aide.”

We truly are living in what may become known as the “non-thermal radiation wavelength” age, which is harming humans, wildlife and the environment.

If We Could See All The Electromagnetic Radiation Waves Around Us Would We Still Accept Microwave Technology As Safe?

microwavesBy Catherine J. Frompovich

Microwaves and their consumer-unrealized effects are so pervasive, currently we live in a “sea of invisible non-ionizing radiation,” which has adverse health implications regardless of what ICNIRP and the microwave tech industries, their lobbyists and trade associations claim in their ‘science’ propaganda.  The chart below ought to indicate just how ubiquitous those invisible ‘ghosts of future health problems’ really are.

Source

Here’s another graphic showing where some of the more common ‘smart’ technologies fit into the spectrum.

Source

Note what the American Cancer Society has to say about non-ionizingradiation:

Radiofrequency (RF) radiation, which includes radio waves and microwaves, is at the low-energy end of the electromagnetic spectrum. It is a type of non-ionizing radiation. Non-ionizing radiation has enough energy to move atoms in a molecule around or cause them to vibrate, but not enough to ionize (remove charged particles such as electrons). RF radiation has lower energy than some other types of non-ionizing radiation, like visible light and infrared, but it has higher energy than extremely low-frequency (ELF) radiation. [1]

[It’s not so low according to the above chart.  Microwave RFs are mid-range leaning toward higher ranges!  Do you see that square box under cell phone range?]

If RF radiation is absorbed in large enough amounts by materials containing water, such as food, fluids, and body tissues, it can produce heat. This can lead to burns and tissue damage. Although RF radiation does not cause cancer by damaging DNA in cells the way ionizing radiation does, there has been concern that some forms of non-ionizing radiation might have biological effects that could result in cancer in some circumstances. [1][One of the seriously grave deficits of microwave vested interests that propels the FCC and other government agencies in their microwave tolerance ranges is a deliberate failure and ‘scientific’ malfeasance in not recognizing non-thermal radiation waves (documented by independent and academic research in over 70% of studies) emitted by all microwave-operated appliances, towers, etc.   Note the ACS talks about heat, which is the only adverse reaction the microwave industry recognizes called “thermal radiation waves.”]

Man-made RF radiation is used for many different things, such as

  • Broadcasting radio and television signals
  • Transmitting signals from cordless telephones, cell phones and cell phone towers, satellite phones, and 2-way radios
  • Radar
  • WiFi and Bluetooth
  • Cooking food (in a microwave oven)
  • Heating body tissue to destroy them in medical procedures [that should be a clue!]
  • “Welding” pieces of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) using certain machines
  • Millimeter wave scanners (a type of full body scanner used for security screening) [1]

[Take special note of the “heating body tissue” above!  Microwaves interact with water and the human body is about 60% water with specific organs containing more, e.g., brain and heart, 73%.  All those innovative smart things we’ve become addicted to supply unseen microwaves and their consequential radiation waves to the human organism.]

However, most consumers really do not understand the ramifications surrounding non-ionizing radiation sources and waves.  In my opinion, there’s an article “Ghosts and spectra: The invisible world of WiFi signal bombardment” which, from the research I’ve done, seems misleading and not factual about Wi-Fi and EMF radiation wavelengths.  The photos in the article represent something else other than Wi-Fi, since that radiation is a ‘scatter’ effect for users to be able to access it “out of thin air” wherever it is available.  Something else probably is going on in those photos [e.g., lower dimensional; astral; or other spectra manifestations] or it’s ‘photoshop’ to create a special effect.  However, I don’t agree the photos represent Wi-Fi/EMF/RF radiation waves.

I’ve had people concerned about non-thermal radiation waves health effects contact me, especially experts in the field of EMFs/RFs/ELFs to say many groups claim to understand EMF but actually don’t.  According to one professional, “We know what radar, EMF, radiation patterns look like.  There are near-field pattern analysis and far-field pattern analysis diagrams.  These patterns change with respect to the human body’s anatomical structure and other incident fields.”

Interestingly, an EMF professional, who used a CORNET ED88T electrosmog meter to take various readings in several metropolitan areas, including a hospital where radiation cancer treatments are given, reports, “In most metropolitan areas, the RF power density readings exceeded the meter’s maximum reading of 1.8 W/m 2.  The US guidelines have a maximum exposure of 6.33 W/m 2.  The proximity to cell towers and large business or shopping areas are where the meter was over the range. [What are shoppers being exposed to?]  The new computer systems in the hospitals, Wi-Fi everywhere, and other EMF generating sources make these places a good place to stay away from if you absolutely do not have to be there.  The poor nurses, doctors, and volunteers do not know what they are doing to themselves.  They are definitely in the fast lane.”

To the above information, that EMF professional added, “All one can do is pray for the people located near or within these areas of maximum power density.  Although, even in the other areas that indicate caution, the sclerotic effects on the body are still cumulative over time.  What we do for convenience is tragic.”

Getting back to the “Ghosts and spectra” article photos mentioned above, there was a poignant comment posted in the Comments section by Tannaberton Abacrombie Apr 7, 2017 at 5:30 am, which explains the hidden aspects seemingly kept deliberately hidden and not revealed to consumers:

The artwork is deceptive. It shows a mass of waves around a small point when it actually fills every space and attenuates according to the inverse square law. It is truly everywhere. When I worked on the phaseout of WW2 Radar sets used as repeaters, etc. on the Trans Canada Telephone System, we had strict limits as to how much exposure we could be subject to while working. It was a lot less than what we bathe in now and those sets were considered leaky. Tests were done every two years for leakage and small spikes in background radiation were fixed…now. So as you sit there one meter from your WI-FI router turn around every now and then so you won’t get the cancer all on one side.

Yes!  Cancer is one of the unfortunate adverse health effects from long-range exposures to microwaves, especially Wi-Fi and children.  Here are only a couple research papers connecting microwave EMFs with cancer; there are hundreds, if not thousands, more!

  1. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/07/150724123928.html
    Clear connection between wireless devices and cancer, experts say
  2. Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, 2015; 1 DOI: 10.3109/15368378.2015.1043557

Oxidative mechanisms of biological activity of low-intensity radiofrequency radiation.

From all the research I’ve done, it is my candid opinion consumers don’t know what kind of adverse health effects tiger-by-the-tail they have fallen in love with, but can’t seem to want to extricate themselves from its mesmerizing grips until they must, due either to electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) issues or a litany of other health problems, including cancers.

Here’s what you can do.

Thursday, April 20, 2017, there will be a demonstration outside the FCC Offices (445 12th St SW, Washington, DC 20554) from 9:00 – 10:15 am to protest small cells beaming radiation into our homes 24/7, and to advocate/lobby for connecting all homes, schools, and businesses with safe, reliable, cyber-secure, fiber optic cables, the SAFEST technology to use systems-wide. You are encouraged also to attend the FCC’s open meeting, which will be held from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.
