Tip of the Iceberg Tuesday
As women, we are busy; communication is important to us. For most, mobile technology has become as important as running water and electricity- a cultural necessity. And, being without our cell phones would be a disaster, or at least constitute a mild tizzy. The scene from Dr. Doolittle comes to mind (the Eddie Murphy one) where he has taken away his teen daughter’s cell phone for their camping trip; she exclaims, “What am my gonna do without my CELL phone?” Well…probably be extremely disabled, as most of us would be. But what if our “cultural necessity” is hurting us? Is it that serious of a problem? Those are valid questions that need to be answered.
Scientists have known for awhile the potential danger that cellular phone use poses to our bodies, especially to our brains. The bad thing is that most people either haven’t heard this information or they don’t believe it. It could be that because the danger is “invisible” the masses choose to ignore it. Factually, whether you want to believe it or not, the substantial increase of cellular phones, towers, and EMFs flying about the atmosphere could be literally killing us, one brain cell at a time.
“A landmark study by Dr. Henry Lai of the University of Washington showed that even at low levels, exposure to electromagnetic frequency fields and radio frequencies (EMF/RF) caused DNA damage to brain cells of rats, resulting in loss of short and long-term memory and slower learning. And a study at Penn State University concluded that EMF exposure produced no effect for the “first few minutes … then a cascade of microbial destruction occurs.” Because I am a migraneur, I suspect that it may even have something to do with my chronic headaches.
I follow a site called Mercola.com and usually find every article to contain cutting-edge information when it comes to our health and sheiding ourselves from potential threats. Recently, the site featured an article about negative EMFs and the risk of brain tumors with cell phone use. Because I can’t say it any better than he, here is a link to the post. Please read it! In short, the article stated that “a collaborative team of international EMF activists has released a report detailing eleven design flaws of the 13-country, Telecom-funded Interphone study. The exposé discusses research on cell phones and brain tumors, concluding that:
- There is a risk of brain tumors from cell phone use
- Telecom funded studies underestimate the risk of brain tumors
- Children have larger risks than adults for brain tumors”
Dr. Mercola also said that a conference will be held next week in Washington D.C. to further discuss cell phones and our health. Though the subject seems to have the attention of some government organizations, as a whole their involvement has been slow. With pressure from the industry, it’s no doubt that not much has been done to distribute the scientific findings that open a HUGE can of political and economic worms. Gee, this sounds a little like the tobacco industry’s denial about the risks of smoking. Let’s just hope that millions of people don’t have to get sick and die before action is taken on a mass scale. In the mean time, take your health into your own hands.
There are some products currently on the market that block or counteract dangerous EMFs put off by cellular devices. The web-based business, Sheild EMF, carries a small device called the Aulterra Neutralizer, that when attached to your cell phone neutralizes the harmful radiation omitted by the phone. They also sell several other products including the Aulterra Enhance capsules. “Enhance is a homeopathically activated combination of natural paramagnetic elements which neutralize the effect of heavy metals and other toxins on human DNA. A simple regimen of Aulterra Enhance can offer an important protective defense against powerful environmental toxins,” as stated on the shieldemf.com site.
Another way we can combat the dangerous EMFs is through energy charged jewelry that is worn regularly. I know it sounds odd, but the evidence is in the research. Highchi.com founder, Deborah Stuart says, “What’s so exciting about our technology is that we’re transmuting and transforming harmful, negative energies into healing, source energy. The more you build up your horizontal energy by wearing our MegaChi™ Pendant, or using our other
energy systems, the more you’ll feel protected from harmful Negative EMF’s, and of course fear. In fact, much of the fear suffered by people at present is no doubt due to the electronic smog in our environments.” The metaphysician of 18 years owns and operates the successful companies Highchi.com and Oxybliss.com, both offering products to optimize health through proper oxygenation and positive energy. Highchi.com carries a large assortment of stylish pieces that can protect you from incoming EMFs.
I encourage you to do your homework. Here is a link to the entire report based on the research conducted by Glen Rein, Ph.D.. It’s a little technical, so you might need to take your time through it. You can direct your questions to Deborah Stuart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These are simple solutions with which most of us can live. Please visit the links I’ve posted with this article as they will give you the details that you need to make an informed decision to protect yourself. Be well-be beautiful.

I too have experienced headaches when using cell phones. I also think that Key Fobs used to enter a car and start the car with no key ( as long as the fob is with you) also transmits EMF’s I have headaches every time I use these items.
I’m scard to use my new cell phone now and i hope a lot of people don’t die.
I’ve often thought about this! I turn my phone on “airplane mode” as often as I can. And I try to use hands-free a lot too. It is scary when you think abuot EMFs and how often we use our phones.
