The fact: microwaves (cellular
phones) cause DNA damage.
1.) What are microwaves?
Microwaves are a form
of electromagnetic energy, like light waves or radio
waves, and occupy a part of the electromagnetic spectrum
of power, or energy. Microwaves are very short waves
of electromagnetic energy that travel at the speed of
light (186,282 miles per second). In our modern technological
age, microwaves are used to relay long distance telephone
signals, television programs, and computer
information across the earth or to a satellite in
space. But the microwave is most familiar to us as an
energy source for cooking food. In simpler terms, a
microwave oven decays and changes the molecular structure
of the food by the process of radiation.
Frequencies from 1-30 GHz are usually called "microwave".
A microwave oven uses microwaves to heat food. Microwaves
are radio waves. In the case of microwave ovens, the commonly
used radio wave frequency is roughly 2,500 megahertz (2.5
gigahertz). Radio waves in this frequency range have an
interesting property: they are absorbed by water, fats
and sugars. When they are absorbed they are converted
directly into atomic motion - heat.
Microwaves in this frequency range have another
interesting property: they are not absorbed by most plastics,
glass or ceramics. Metal reflects microwaves, which is
why metal pans do not work well in a microwave oven.
Many cellular phones have
two signal strengths: 0.6 watts
and 5 watts (for comparison, most CB radios transmit
at 4 watts). The base station is also transmitting at
Microwaves ovens have 500 watts to 1.1k watts.
Below you can see comparison of radiation of cellular
phones and microwave ovens:
It may seem that mobile phones cause negligible radiation
in comparison to microwave ovens but a simple calculation
will show you the opposite.
If you talk on the cellular phone just one hour a day
the whole radiation is as follows:
watts radiation of cellular phone (ten
times more powerfull than microwaves
ovens) is as if you would put your head in a microwaves
oven.You can imagine what would happen to you >>>
you would burn like a sausage.
Cell phone can do
biological damage through heating effects >>>>
This causes: headaches,
earaches, blurring of vision, short-term memory loss,
numbing, tingling, and burning sensations, bad sleep.
Well know fact is that
if you talk on cellular phone more than 20 min. your
brain temperature raises for up to 2
degrees.Look at the chart below:
2.) What are the scientific
Dr Henry Lai and Dr N. P. Singh tested in
labs that radiation changed brain
cell membranes in the rats
and the effects are so severe that it could affect humans,
Research by other
scientists indicates that prolonged use of cellular
phones may cause hot-spots to develop inside the brain,
causing damage which
could lead to Alzheimer’s disease or cancer.
has shown that GSM pulse-modulated radiation can cause
various physiological effects, such as alteration
of the calcium balance in the nerve tissue of rats and
also inhibition of cell growth in the human amniotic
epithelium. Changes in the EEG pattern have also been
observed.These subclinical effects
do not always have to lead to disease but do call for
alertness. It is assumed that GSM has no mutagenic
characteristics (investigated in yeast cells) but can
further the development of tumors (in rats).
and double strand DNA breaks in brain cells increased
after exposure to microwaves. Exposure to both continuous
wave and pulsed microwaves
produced DNA damage. Double
strand breaks, if not repaired,
are known to lead to cell
Researchers at the
Royal Adelaide Hospital in Australia discovered earlier
this year that the electromagnetic
field that surrounds electrical appliances can
be positively linked to development
of cancer in mice (or negatively linked, if you
look at it the mouse’s point of view).
Exposure to emissions
from (cellular phones) mobile phones (both continuous
wave and pulsed microwave RF) can disable
a blood-brain-barrier and allow proteins and toxins
to leak into the brain. This
can increase the chances of developing
diseases such as Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, and
RF (radio frec.)
similar to digital mobile telephones reduced
REM sleep and altered the EEG (brain wave) signal
during REM sleep. REM sleep is essential for
information processing in the brain
for learning and memory functions.
In 1991, there was a
lawsuit in Oklahoma concerning the hospital use of a
microwave oven to warm blood needed in a transfusion.
The case involved a hip surgery patient, Norma Levitt,
who died from a simple blood transfusion. It seems the
nurse had warmed the blood in a microwave oven. This
tragedy makes it very apparent that there's much more
to "heating" with microwaves than we've been
led to believe. Blood for transfusions is routinely
warmed, but not in microwave ovens. In the case of Mrs.
Levitt, the microwaving altered the blood and it killed
are unsafe so how does brain tumor begin?
A diagnosis of cancer can be devastating. And there
is good reason for this fear -- Cancer
is the second leading cause of death in the United States
next to heart disease, and will claim
more than half a million lives this year. What
we think of as "Cancer" is actually a group
of more than one hundred separate diseases. These
diseases are all characterized by an abnormal and unregulated
growth of cells. This growth destroys surrounding
body tissues and may spread to other parts of the body
in a process that is known as metastasis.
You have probably heard of all kind of different types
of cancer,but we focus on BRAIN CANCER (brain tumor):
Cancer can develop anywhere in the body, and at any
age. Cancer is usually caused
by genetic damage that happens inside an individual
When cells divide at an accelerated rate, they often
begin to form a mass of tissue called a tumor. The tumor
is fed by nutrients that diffuse through neighboring
blood vessels and can also grow by forming a substance
called tumor angiogenesis (vessel forming) factor. This
factor stimulates the growth of an independent blood
supply to the tumor. Tumors can cause destruction in
three common ways:-Tumors put pressure on nearby tissues
- Tumors invade tissues and organs directly (direct
extension), often damaging or disabling them in the
-Tumors make invaded tissues and/or organs susceptible
- Tumors can also release substances that destroy tissues
in close proximity to them.
4.)What Causes Cancer
Mutations in tumor suppressor genes are another common
cause of cancer. As you might expect, a tumor suppressor
gene is supposed to prevent tumors. But when these
genes are damaged, they can allow cancer to develop
instead of preventing it. One of these genes, p53,
normally prevents cells with abnormal DNA from surviving.
When p53 is defective, these cells with abnormal
DNA survive and can multiply, increasing the probability
of developing cancer (brain tumor).
