5G & EMF RADIATION ARE DAMAGING TO YOUR HEALTH
Summary of the ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS CONFERENCE 2019: Diagnosis and Treatment of the Effects of Electromagnetic Fields Exposure, held on September 6-8, 2019 in Santa Cruz, CA
By Ronald Peters, MD, MPH
DR.PETERS’ URGENT MESSAGE
We all love our cellphones and computers, but they can produce irreversible damage to your health and the health of your family and friends. Professor Martin Pall, a leading researcher in the health effects of EMF and wi-fi microwave radiation states the issue quite simply, “The 5G Rollout Is Completely Insane.”
Wuhan, China, was the first city in world to roll out a 5G tower and antenna network.
Research suggests that 5G weakens the immune system and is creating a new disease, called Microwave Sickness, which is defined my Merriam-Webster Medical Dictionary as:
“ a condition of impaired health reported especially in the Russian medical literature that is characterized by headaches, anxiety, sleep disturbances, fatigue, and difficulty in concentrating and by changes in the cardiovascular and central nervous systems and that is held to be caused by prolonged exposure to low-intensity microwave radiation.”
In order to protect their profits, the tobacco industry denied, distorted and minimized the link between cigarette smoking and disease for decades and the telecom and computer industries will do the same. It is up to us to educate ourselves and take action.
After reading the article below, I suggest exploring the Environmental Health Trust, which is a non-profit think tank that promotes a healthier environment through research, education, and policy. The EHT also carries out cutting edge research on environmental health hazards and works directly with communities, health and education professionals, and policymakers to understand and mitigate these hazards.

They have many tools for social action and intelligent communication on these important issues.
You may also be surprised when you plug your home or work address intohttp://www.antennasearch.com to see how many cell phone towers and antennas are in your neighborhood.
And, you don’t have to get rid of your cellphone or computer.
I arrived at the ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS CONFERENCE 2019: Diagnosis and Treatment of the Effects of Electromagnetic Fields Exposure expecting to hear a civilized discussion on the pros and cons of EMF exposure. Instead I heard dozens of doctors and research scientists vehemently proclaim the proven dangers of EMF exposure to our health, especially to the health of our children.
Dr. Martin Pall wrote the following summary of biological effects of EMF:
“We know that there is a massive literature, providing a high level of scientific certainty, for each of eight pathophysiological effects caused by non-thermal microwave frequency (cell phones and computers) EMF exposures. This is shown in from 12 to 35 reviews on each specific effect, providing a substantial body of evidence on the existence of each effect.”
- Attack our nervous systems including our brains leading to widespread neurological/neuropsychiatric effects and possibly many other effects. This nervous system attack is of great concern.
- Attack our endocrine (that is hormonal) systems. In this context, the main things that make us functionally different from single celled creatures are our nervous system and our endocrine systems – even a simple planaria worm needs both of these. Thus, the consequences of the disruption of these two regulatory systems is immense, such that it is a travesty to ignore these findings.
- Produce oxidative stress and free radical damage, which have central roles in essentially all chronic diseases.
- Attack the DNA of our cells, producing single strand and double strand breaks in cellular DNA and oxidized bases in our cellular DNA. These in turn produce cancer and also mutations in germ line cells which produce mutations in future generations.
- Produce elevated levels of apoptosis (programmed cell death), events especially important in causing both neurodegenerative diseases and infertility.
- Lower male and female fertility, lower sex hormones, lower libido and increased levels of spontaneous abortion and, as already stated, attack the DNA in sperm cells.
- Produce excessive intracellular calcium [Ca2+] and excessive calcium signaling.
- Attack the cells of our bodies to cause cancer. Such attacks are thought to act via 15 different mechanisms during cancer causation.
There is also a substantial literature showing that EMFs are associated with other effects including
- life threatening cardiac effects.
- very early onset dementias, including Alzheimer’s, digital and other types of dementias
- EMF exposures in utero and shortly after birth may cause ADHD and autism
Somewhat dismayed by this attack on my beloved computer and cell phone, I arrived back home, turned on new Safe and Sound Pro R meter for testing Wi-Fi microwaves and walked into my home office. The device immediately began buzzing as it measured EMF frequencies in the Moderate and High range. As I got closer to my computer, the device seemed to scream with Extreme levels, far beyond EMF industry “safety” standards, which, by the way, haven’t been updated since 1996, and are based on short term exposure to ONE device. And, my wife and I bathe in this microwave (as in Microwave Oven) frequency every night as our bedroom is on the other side of the wall from my home office.
In this newsletter, I will present some of the Conference research so you can make your own decision. Your health and that of your family depends is riding on what you decide. I also want to reassure you that you do not have to give up your cell phone or computer. You just need to use them, probably less, but in a safe manner which reduces the exposure to wi-fi and other EMF energies in your home.
HOW EMFS AFFECT EACH ONE OF YOUR CELLS
Scientists have discovered that EMFs from cell phones, Wi-Fi routers, and cell towers activate countless microscopic sensors that are found on the surface of every one of your 70 trillion cells.
When these “voltage sensors” are exposed to foreign EMF signals, your cells get tricked into allowing large amounts of calcium to flow inside…
Normally, calcium is a healthy mineral — but too much calcium inside the cell is the equivalent of pouring gas on a fire and triggers a range of negative health effects.
Put simply, EMFs are an added stress to every single cell in your body — whether you personally feel EMF-related symptoms or not.
Just like you probably opt to eat whole, natural foods as free of toxic pesticides as possible… aiming to minimize your personal EMF exposure is a great action step for your health.
In his 2013 groundbreaking paper, Dr. Martin Pall has shown that extremely low levels of EMFs can activate the cells’ voltage gated calcium channels, leading to 14 distinct downstream biological effects such as oxidative stress, DNA breaks, melatonin depletion, infertility and cancer.
SYMPTOMS OF EMF EXPOSURE
According to some scientists, EMFs can affect your body’s nervous system function and cause damage to cells. Cancer and unusual growths may be one symptom of very high EMF exposure. Other symptoms may include:
- sleep disturbances, including insomnia
- depression and depressive symptoms
- tiredness and fatigue
- dysesthesia (a painful, often itchy sensation)
- lack of concentration
- changes in memory
- behavior change
- loss of appetite and weight loss
- restlessness and anxiety
- skin burning and tingling
- changes in an electroencephalogram (which measures electrical activity in the brain)
- Pressure sense head/ears*
- Sharp pains head/ears*
- Sensations of electric shock*
- Visual / hearing disturbance
- Anomia / thought block
- Tremor / vibration* / seizure
- Cardiac dysrhythmia / palpitations
- BP anomaly / Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome
- Musculoskeletal pains
- Joint dysfunction
- Thirst / dehydration
- Urinary / bowel urgency
- Increased chemical sensitivity*
- Increased food sensitivity
- General sensory up-regulation*
- Circadian rhythm reversal*

A FOCUS ON MILLENNIAL HEALTH TRENDS
BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD – THE HEALTH OF AMERICA REPORT
The Health of Millennials Published April 24, 2019
Nearly 73 million people in the U.S. are millennials—people born between 1981 and 1996 and who were 21 to 36 years old in 2017. This report focuses on the 55 million millennial Americans that are commercially insured.1
According to the Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) Health Index, in 2017, millennials had an average BCBS Health Index of 95.1, meaning millennials as a group were living at about 95% of their optimal health.2 However, further data analysis reveals that older millennials (age 34-36) have higher prevalence rates for nearly all of the top 10 conditions than did Generation X members when they were in the same age range (age 34-36). With younger generations facing health challenges at earlier ages than previous generations, measuring the health of millennials is critical to improving this generation’s long-term health and wellness.
DEPRESSION AND SUICIDE RATES ARE RISING SHARPLY IN YOUNG AMERICANS, NEW REPORT SAYS. THIS MAY BE ONE REASON WHY
Since the late 2000s, the mental health of teens and young adults in the U.S. has declined dramatically. That’s the broad conclusion of a new study published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology.
Between 2009 and 2017, rates of depression among kids ages 14 to 17 increased by more than 60%, the study found. The increases were nearly as steep among those ages 12 to 13 (47%) and 18 to 21 (46%), and rates roughly doubled among those ages 20 to 21. In 2017—the latest year for which federal data are available—more than one in eight Americans ages 12 to 25 experienced a major depressive episode, the study found.
These findings were based on data collected from more than 600,000 people by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, an annual nationwide mental-health survey conducted by a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
“I think this is quite a wake-up call,” says Mary Helen Immordino-Yang, a professor of psychology and education at the University of Southern California (who was not affiliated with the new study). “These findings are coming together with other kinds of evidence that show we’re not supporting our adolescents in developmentally appropriate ways.”
One of the study’s authors agrees. “There is an overwhelming amount of data from many different sources, and it all points in the same direction: more mental health issues among American young people,” says Jean Twenge, a professor of psychology at San Diego State University and author of iGen, a book about how technology affects the lives of young people.
What’s causing today’s young people so much anguish? “This is always a tough question to answer, as we can’t prove for sure what the causes are,” Twenge says. “But there was one change that impacted the lives of young people more than older people, and that was the growth of smartphones and digital media like social media, texting and gaming.”
While older adults also use these technologies, “their adoption among younger people was faster and more complete, and the impact on their social lives much larger,” Twenge says.
HANDHELD SCREEN TIME LINKED WITH SPEECH DELAYS IN YOUNG CHILDREN
Researchers at the University of Toronto in 2017 reported for the first time that smartphone or tablet use before the age of 2 caused a delay in speech development. The 4-year study showed that for each 30-minute increase in handheld screen time, researchers found a 49 percent increased risk of expressive speech delay.

EXPOSURE LIMITS: THE UNDERESTIMATION OF ABSORBED CELL PHONE RADIATION, ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN
When electrical properties are considered, a child’s head’s absorption can be over two times greater, and absorption of the skull’s bone marrow can be ten times greater than adults. Therefore, a new certiﬁcation process is needed
that incorporates different modes of use, head sizes, and tissue properties. Anatomically based models should be employed in revising safety standards for these ubiquitous modern devices and standards should be set by accountable, independent groups.
MOBILE PHONE RADIATION MAY AFFECT MEMORY PERFORMANCE IN ADOLESCENTS
SWISS TROPICAL AND PUBLIC HEALTH INSTITUTE
The study to be published on 19 July 2018 found that cumulative RF-EMF brain exposure from mobile phone use over one year may have a negative effect on the development of figural memory performance in adolescents, confirming prior results published in 2015. Figural memory is mainly located in the right brain hemisphere and association with RF-EMF was more pronounced in adolescents using the mobile phone on the right side of the head. “This may suggest that indeed RF-EMF absorbed by the brain is responsible for the observed associations.” said Martin Röösli, Head of Environmental Exposures and Health at Swiss TPH.

THE IMPACT OF CELL PHONE RADIATION ON THE BRAIN
NIH research found cell phone radiation altered brain activity in areas of the brain closest to the radiating antenna (Volkow2011).
Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute found decreased memory performance in adolescents from cumulative exposure to cell phone radiation in a 2018 study which replicated a 2015 study (Foerster 2018).
A Yale Medicine study found prenatally exposed mice had altered brains, poor memory and were hyperactive (Aldad2011).
University of California School of Public Health research found children exposed to cell phones before and after birth were more likely to have behavior problems than unexposed children (Divan 2008, Divan 2012).

ADVERSE HEALTH SYMPTOMS LIVING NEAR CELL TOWERS
BLOOD CELL ABNORMALITIES FOUND
Zothansiama 2017 – In a recent study from India by Zothansiama et al (2017), researchers examined abnormalities in blood samples in people living at different distances from cell towers. They identified a significant increase blood cell damage in those living within 80 meters of a cell tower versus those living greater than 300 meters from a cell tower. They found 1) A significant increase in micronuclei, which are small remnants of DNA nuclear material appearing within blood cells and a sensitive indicator of genotoxicity and chromosomal abnormalities 2) An increase in lipid peroxidation indicating free radical formation and cell membrane damage 3) A reduction in levels of internally produced antioxidant capacity (glutathione, catalase and superoxide dismutase).
The author concluded “The present study demonstrated that staying near the mobile base stations and continuous use of mobile phones damage the DNA, and it may have an adverse effect in the long run. The persistence of DNA unrepaired damage leads to genomic instability which may lead to several health disorders including the induction of cancer.” As more base stations are deployed with higher density and with ubiquitous wireless devices at home it will be difficult to find control groups that have not been significantly exposed. The Antenna Search website allows people to identify registered cell towers in their area.
SCHOOL CELL TOWER STUDY IN 2018 STUDY SHOWS COGNITIVE DECLINE IN STUDENTS
Meo 2018 – A recent case controlled 2 year scientific study examining the neurologic effects of children, aged 13-16, in schools with nearby cell towers revealed significant decline in cognitive scores when the radiation from the cell tower was higher but still at non-thermal levels. Students in School 1 (124 students) were exposed to cell tower radiation at 2.010 µW/cm2 at a frequency of 925 MHz for 6 hr a day, 5 days a week. Students at School 2 were exposed to cell tower radiation at 10.021 µW/cm2 at a frequency of 925 MHz for 6 hr a day, 5 days a week. Both groups had exposure for 2 years. Cognitive functions tasks were measured by the Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery (CANTAB). Participants were excluded who had any confounding factors , i.e. those with any pre existing illness, on any medications, with history of anxiety or attention problems, frequent use of cordless or cell phones, use of Wi-Fi routers in their bedrooms, or those who lived near high transmission lines or cell towers.
The researchers used the Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery (CANTAB) to measure cognitive functions tasks.
They found “a significant impairment in Motor Screening Task (MOT; p = .03) and Spatial Working Memory (SWM) task (p = .04) was identified among the group of students who were exposed to high RF-EMF produced by MPBSTs.
High exposure to RF-EMF produced by MPBSTs was associated with delayed fine and gross motor skills, spatial working memory, and attention in school adolescents compared to students who were exposed to low RF-EMF. Most notable is that the current FCC safety “guidelines” for 30 minute exposure are 1000 µW/cm2.. This FCC limit is 100 times more RF than the students experienced in the highest exposure group that showed cognitive decline and with non-thermal effects.

CANCER AND CELL TOWERS
Wolf and Wolf 2004 investigated the rates of cancer versus distance from cell towers in small towns in Israel. He found the rate of cancer incidence was 129 cases per 10,000 persons per year in those living within 350 meters of a cell tower versus a rate of 16-31/10,000 in those living greater than 350 meters from the cell tower. Eger (2004) also found an increase in the development of new cancer cases within a 10 year period if residents lived within 400 meters of a cell tower. Their results revealed that within 5 years of operation of a transmitting station the relative risk of cancer development tripled in residents near the cell towers compared to residents outside the area.
Dode 2011 performed a 10 year study (1996-2006) examining the distance from cell towers and cancer clusters. He and his colleagues found a highly significant increase in cancers in those living within 500 meters of the cell tower. They noted “The largest density power was 40.78 μW/cm2, and the smallest was 0.04 μW/cm2.” The current guidelines are about 1000 μW/cm2. The authors conclude “Measured values stay below Brazilian Federal Law limits that are the same of ICNIRP. The human exposure pattern guidelines are inadequate. More restrictive limits must be adopted urgently.”
Ghandi in 2015 used comet assays to determine genetic damage in those living in the vicinity of mobile base stations. He found that genetic damage was elevated in the sample group. He concluded, “analysis further revealed daily mobile phone usage, location of residence and power density as significant predictors of genetic damage… which…may lead to cancer.”
CELL TOWERS AND METABOLIC DISORDERS
Meo (2015) Several studies on cell towers show metabolic changes and dysfunction in persons exposed to cell tower radiation. Meo (2015) looked at the association of exposure to radio frequency radiation from mobile phone base stations with glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and occurrence of type 2 diabetes mellitus in 2 different schools. The cell towers were about 200 feet from each school. One school had about 10 times higher radiation levels. They found a significant increase in elevated levels of HbA1c and risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus in the school with higher RF levels.
Eskander (2012) looked at long term exposure to RF from cell towers over a 6 year period. They showed a reduction in volunteers’ plasma ACTH, serum cortisol levels and a decrease in the release of the thyroid hormones especially T3. In addition prolactin in young females (14–22 years), and testosterone levels [in males] significantly dropped.

5G DANGER: KILLING ALL THE INSECTS?
Insects, birds, and children are the most vulnerable to 5G due to their body size. Claire Edwards is a former UN staff editor who brought the EMF/5G issue to their attention of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. She stated in an anti-5G rally speech in Stockholm:
“It’s interesting to note that in the last 20 years we have lost 80% of our insects. And if we get 5G, we’re going to lose 100% of our insects. When the insects go, we go too.”
Both insects and 5G need antennas: insects use them, among other things, in their sense of smell, while 5G uses them to propagate waves. Not surprisingly, insects are sensitive to 5G EMF waves; this recent study showed that insects exposed to 5G radiation experienced an increase in their body temperature.
“Studies have shown that the frequencies used by 5G increase the body temperature of insects. This phenomenon was not observed with 4G or WiFi.”
Meanwhile the study Exposure of Insects to Radio-Frequency Electromagnetic Fields from 2 to 120 GHz concludes:
“Future wavelengths of the electromagnetic fields used for the wireless telecommunication systems will decrease and become comparable to the body size of insects and therefore, the absorption of RF-EMFs in insects is expected to increase.”

“The 5G Rollout Is Completely Insane.”
Martin Pall, PhD 11
Just in the few weeks prior to publishing this report, the cities of Brussels, Belgium, and Geneva, Switzerland have decided to stop installing the latest 5G (5th generation) technologies until more studies are conducted.
Why? In a recent letter sent to officials of the European Union, Dr. Martin Pall from the Washington State University explained that 5G is being rolled out without a single biological test to prove its safety on human beings, animals and nature.
This is equivalent to making new drugs available to the public without a single test proving their safety and efficacy.
Dr. Pall is far from being alone. Hundreds of independent scientists15 and tens of thousands of concerned individuals worldwide have been sounding the alarm as well.16
To make matters worse, 5G will also require the installation of tens of millions of new “small cell” antennas in the US alone — we’re talking about every 3 to 12 homes in residential areas, and at every single block in downtown areas.
INSURANCE COMPANY’S WILL NOT TAKE THE RISK
WHITE PAPERS RANK POTENTIAL FUTURE IMPACT AS “HIGH”
“The danger with EMF is that, like asbestos, the exposure insurers face is underestimated and could grow exponentially and be with us for many years.”
-Lloyds of London 2010 Report
- No insurance coverage for cell phone companies for damages from EMF since 1997.
- Swiss Re Report 2013, 2014 ranks the” unforeseen consequences of EMF” to the insurance industry as “High”
- EMFs are defined as a “pollutant”
- Insurance companies exclude EMFs as an industry standard in general policies.

CELL PHONE & WIRELESS SAFETY TIPS
REDUCING YOUR EXPOSURE
Background: There is substantial and increasing research showing that non-ionizing wireless (microwave) radiation acts as a broad biological toxin, similar to other toxins we are exposed to. These microwaves are emitted from wireless devices we commonly use such as cell phones, tablets, laptops, wireless routers, cordless phones, Smart Meters and cell towers. There are now many Baby Products on the market that are wireless. While small short exposures may not cause symptoms or much harm, we are now continuously and increasingly exposed to this radiation. Damage to cellular structures is cumulative. Reducing your exposure is recommended by the California Department of Public Health and an increasing number of physicians and scientists.
Biological harm demonstrated: Includes DNA damage, reproductive harm (sperm, ovary and embryo abnormalities), inflammation/oxidation, lower melatonin levels, immune dysfunction, stress protein synthesis, damage to the brain and nervous system, brain cancer, cancer promotion, harm to wildlife and plants. People with electrosensitivity report symptoms including headaches, fatigue, sleep disorders, heart palpitations, memory problems when around wireless devices. Electro sensitivity is recognized in Sweden as a true medical disorder and it is estimated that about 3% of the population experience it.
Increasing exposure: We are increasingly exposed to a number of wireless devices in our homes and workplaces. These devices act as small cellular antenna similar to a cell towers that emit and receive information via radiofrequency radiation but at a lower power.
Current FCC safety standards are obsolete as they are based only on heat and not biological effects seen in lab and human experiments at far lower levels than currently allowed. Children are more vulnerable as their bodies are still developing, cells are more rapidly dividing thus they are more prone to DNA/cellular damage. Pregnant women are also highly vulnerable. Harm is cumulative. Precaution is critical.
Recommendations for safer use of wireless devices
- Wireless Devices are not Toys. Do not let babies or young children use a cell phone, tablet or laptop
- Children should use a cell phone for emergencies only. Consider giving your child a cell phone at an older age (14 years or above).
- Avoid sleeping with your cell phonenext to your head or as an alarm unless phone is onAirplane Mode (it still works as an alarm when on Airplane Mode)
- Turn off Wi-Fi router at nightand plug into an on/off surge protector for ease of use
- Hardwire Computers. Convert back to a wired connection in your house we all used to have. It is easy. Visit com
- Remove Cordless Phones.A cordless phone has essentially the same radiation as a cell phone. Use the landline for long calls. Replace the DECT cordless phone with a landline corded phone. Keep your landline if you have one.
- Distance Matters. Keep wireless devices away from the body. Keep tablets and laptops on the tabletop and not on the lap. FCC standards are for 7 inches (20 cm) away from the body. No Cell phone in bra or pocket unless in Airplane Mode.
- Airplane Mode When Not in Use and at night. . Download movies or games first thenview on Airplane Mode. Keep cell phones away from the head.
- Do not keep router in the bedroomor near child’s room. The farther away the better. Turn router off at night.
- When travelingin a bus or car download games or google map then turn your devices on airplane mode as the radiation is much higher as the device connects and disconnects to different cell towers as you move.
- In the Car.Turn off bluetooth in the car when not in use as the metal shields the wireless radiation and increases the levels in the car by a factor of 2 or more.
- Keep Landline.A landline is still the most sophisticated and effective emergency line and essential for those who are electrosensitive or who wish to reduce their risk of brain tumors from using a cordless phone. You can purchase a corded phone, we all used to have, at number of retail outlets.
- Consider removing your Smart Meterand switch back to analogue with a human meter reader. Lamech in 2014 reported an increase in symptoms when Smart meters were rolled out in Australia. In California call PG&E at 1-866-743-0263 and ask to Opt Out or call your local utility as 24 states now have laws that allow you Opt Out.
