There is a lot of talk with a lot of numbers and it sure seems like they are saying "it is safe". Many of us have no medical background. We just want to know if this radiation is safe or not. An RF "expert" may hand out information sheets that seem scientific.
Have you been told that this radiation at low levels "IS SAFE"? It would be scientifically inaccurate to say such a statement. No Proof of Safety exists (unless all radiation is neutralized). Check those semi-solutions here!
INDEX of Deceive Statements and Correspondings Facts:
RF radiation energy is too weak to remove or add charged particles to an atom. RF Radiation is non-ionizing. Non-ionizing radiation such as the microwave radiation from a cell tower cannot change the makeup of an atom.
Facts INDEX Only
The Cell Tower radiation - RFR (Radio Frequency Radiation) is not exceeding limits. It is safe. It is proven by the number of research. It is no conclusive research results stating differently.
There are literally thousands of research studies on the impacts of EMF/ RFR. Here is a small sample of research of this issue:

Radio Frequency (RF) radiation is a type of electromagnetic (EM) energy, which is energy that travels through space like from the sun.
It is nothing like the light from our sun. It is not natural and it is thousands of times stronger than the amounts of radiation approaching earth. In addition RFR (Radio Frequency Radiation) from cell towers is pulsed and digital microwave radiation.
Our civilisation never before has our environment had affected by the amount of microwaves as currently in the air. The amount we are exposed to from cell towers and new technology is thousands of times higher than in middle of the last century.
Modulation [not carrier waves] occupies a previous quiet spot in the electromagnetic spectrum to which humans have had no chance to evolve says Dr. Andrew Goldsworthy.
It is no conclusive research results proofing increased Child's Risk of Leukemia related to Power Line ELF-EMF exposure.
In 2001, the World Health Organization classified the EMF from electrical wiring and power lines ELF-EMF as a possible human carcinogen. The last decade of research continues to confirm the consistent link between ELF and leukemia in children.
The mechanism for causation is "unknown." Several countries have taken action to minimize exposure to this type of non ionizing radiation.
"Children exposed to 4mG or more in their bedrooms had a statistically significant, almost 5 times more leukemia than those living in low exposure homes."

magnetic fields in Japan, International Journal of Cancer (Volume 119, Issue 3, Pages 643-650) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16496405
A mother's exposure to weak power-frequency magnetic fields during pregnancy substantially increases the chances her child will develop asthma.

Leukemia and Asthma are both Immune issues. 3 to 4 mG is linked to increased Leukemia in children.
The US government says this level meets "safety" standards.
How come other countries and California advise against building in areas with levels that high?
Would you want your child to sleep in 4 mG or 0 mG?

"Our findings provide strong prospective evidence that prenatal maximum magnetic field exposure above a certain level (possibly around 16 mG) may be associated with miscarriage risk. This observed association is unlikely to be due to uncontrolled biases or unmeasured confounders."

Embryonic bud length was inversely associated with maternal daily MF exposure level; the association was statistically significant at the time-weighted-average and 75th percentile of MF exposure levels. CONCLUSION: Prenatal MF exposure may have an adverse effect on embryonic development.

The risk also appeared to increase with increasing duration of electric blanket use. Despite small numbers and the potential for recall bias, our study indicates that identifying a susceptible population may be required for detecting adverse reproductive effects of electromagnetic fields.

"We envisage that EMF exposure can cause both acute and chronic effects that are mediated by increased free radical levels: (1) Direct activation of, for example macrophages (or other cells) by short-term exposure to EMF leads to phagocytosis (or other cell specific responses) and consequently, free radical production. This pathway may be utilized to positively influence certain aspects of the immune response, and could be useful for specific therapeutic applications.
(2) EMF-induced macrophage (cell) activation includes direct stimulation of free radical production.
(3) An increase in the lifetime of free radicals by EMF leads to persistently elevated free radical concentrations. In general, reactions in which radicals are involved become more frequent, increasing the possibility of DNA damage.
(4) Long-term EMF exposure leads to a chronically increased level of free radicals, subsequently causing an inhibition of the effects of the pineal gland hormone melatonin.
Taken together, these EMF induced reactions could lead to a higher incidence of DNA damage and therefore, to an increased risk of tumour development. While the effects on melatonin and the extension of the lifetime of radicals can explain the link between EMF exposure and the incidence of for example leukaemia, the two additional mechanisms described here specifically for mouse macrophages, can explain the possible correlation between immune cell system stimulation and EMF exposure."

"There were positive associations between cumulative ELF 1-4 years prior to the diagnosis/reference date and glioma ...and, somewhat weaker associations with meningioma ... Conclusions: Results showed positive associations between ELF in the recent past and glioma. Occupational ELF exposure may play a role in the later stages (promotion and progression) of brain tumourigenesis."
RF radiation energy is too weak to remove or add charged particles to an atom. RF Radiation is non-ionizing.
Non-ionizing radiation such as the microwave radiation from a cell tower cannot change the makeup of an atom.
Yes, RF is Non ionizing and it does NOT change the makeup of the atom. However this does mean that effects can occur through another, yet unknown mechanism. Some scientists state that perhaps it is the oxidative stress that lead to cancer as significant research shows increased stress parameters in the exposed subjects.
The true is you body fights with EMFs and the part of it exposed to EMF is the battlefield where all energy is allocated to this fight, so it may be not enough energy to fight cancer cells in this area.
Also see Martin Pall's research in the Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine.
There is no evidence linking cancer and cell tower and cell phone radiation.
The research has accumulated to where experts state that wireless radiation meets Group 1 classification criteria as a carcinogen. In fact, some cancer registries are showing a rise in brain cancer. Here is what we know:
Coureau G, Bouvier G, Lebailly P, Fabbro-Peray P, Gruber A, Leffondre K, Guillamo JS, Loiseau H, Mathoulin-Pélissier S, Salamon R, Baldi I. (2014). Mobile phone use and brain tumours in the CERENAT case-control study. Occup Environ Med. 71(7), 514-22. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24816517
"However, the positive association was statistically significant in the heaviest users when considering life-long cumulative duration for meningiomas and number of calls for gliomas. Risks were higher for gliomas, temporal tumours, occupational and urban mobile phone use. These additional data support previous findings concerning a possible association between heavy mobile phone use and brain tumours.”

"If the increased brain cancer risk found in young users in these recent studies does apply at the global level, the gap between supply and demand for oncology services will continue to widen. Many nations, phone manufacturers, and expert groups advise prevention in light of these concerns by taking the simple precaution of "distance" to minimize exposures to the brain and body. We note than brain cancer is the proverbial "tip of the iceberg"; the rest of the body is also showing effects other than cancers.”

“Ipsilateral use resulted in a higher risk than contralateral for both mobile and cordless phones. OR increased per 100 h cumulative use and per year of latency for mobile phones and cordless phones, though the increase was not statistically significant for cordless phones. The percentage tumour volume increased per year of latency and per 100 h of cumulative use, statistically significant for analogue phones. This study confirmed previous results demonstrating an association between mobile and cordless phone use and acoustic neuroma.”

“We give an overview of current epidemiological evidence for an increased risk for brain tumours including a meta-analysis of the Hardell group and Interphone results for mobile phone use. It is concluded that one should be careful using incidence data to dismiss results in analytical epidemiology. The IARC carcinogenic classification does not seem to have had any significant impact on governments' perceptions of their responsibilities to protect public health from this widespread source of radiation."

In conclusion, 900 MHz EMR appears to induce apoptosis effects through oxidative stress and mitochondrial depolarization although incubation of selenium seems to counteract the effects on apoptosis and oxidative stress.
The effects of Non-ionizing radiation are not cumulative.
"these effects are not cumulative" is inaccurate because the World Health Organization showed that it was high cumulative exposure (30 minutes a day for over ten years) that resulted in increased brain cancer. Most EMF researchers agree that cumulative exposure that is the critical factor when it comes to our health.
Read Dr. Olle Johansson and Dr. Yury Grigoriev "EVIDENCE FOR EFFECTS ON IMMUNE FUNCTION" Section 8 Bioinitiative Report
The effects of non-ionizing radiation cease after the exposure is removed.
"It's effects cease" Heard this line before?
First, If you live near a cell tower and go to school by a cell tower then I guess you will never know what it is like to have exposure "cease". The radiation will always be present.
Second. Several studies have shown that even after exposure -effects continue. We could cite hundreds of studies to this end but let's start with these showing effects on the fetus (these effects continued after exposure stopped.)
Aldad et al., Fetal Radiofrequency Radiation Exposure From 800-1900 Mhz-Rated Cellular Telephones Affects Neurodevelopment and Behavior in Mice. Scientific Reports, 2012; 2 DOI:
Mice that were exposed to "safe" cell phone radiation tended to be more hyperactive and had reduced memory capacity. Authors attributed the behavioral changes to an effect during pregnancy on the development of neurons in the prefrontal cortex .

A “strong non-thermal character of biological effects of RFR has been documented” and “it is clear that the substantial overproduction of ROS in living cells under low intensity RFR exposure could cause a broad spectrum of health disorders and diseases."
The power is insignificant. It as low as a night table lamp.
Critical to health is the erratic nature of the pulse, not the power. Low power does NOT mean low effects. In fact at 1% of FCC guidelines research shows damaged mitochondria, nucleus of cells in hippocampus of brain, impaired memory and visual reaction time. At 1/1000th (0.1%) of FCC guidelines altered EEG, disturbed carbohydrate metabolism, enlarged adrenals, altered adrenal hormone levels. structural changes in liver, spleen, testes, and brain, slowing of the heart, increase in melatonin, decreased cell growth, increased sterility, childhood leukemia, impaired motor function.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has adopted limits for human exposure based on years of scientific research.
Actually there was very little pre-market testing done. The FCC safety guidelines were developed in the 1960s, based on thermal considerations alone, for military personnel operating radar equipment. The standard was developed for industrial and military users, not by health experts .
These standards were adopted by our government. No research was done to evaluate human health and set a "safe" limit for long term exposures.
Due to safety standards the maximum amount of radiation is much below risk elevation level. It is no links to connect such low energy with Stress and Immune Function.
Wireless radiation has been shown to increase oxidative stress. Oxidative stress leads to neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease, gene mutations and cancers, heart disorders, and inflammatory diseases. Research has also shown an over-reaction of the immune system after exposure to non ionizing radiation:

Our results showed a significant increase in intracellular ROS levels after EMR exposure. The percentage of late-apoptotic cells in the EMR-exposed group was significantly higher than that in the sham-exposed groups (p < 0.05). These results indicate that an 1800-MHz EMR enhances ROS formation and promotes apoptosis in NIH/3T3 cells.

Increases of cortisol and a higher concentration of alpha-amylase were detected in subjects under various EMF exposure scenarios. RF-EMF in considerably lower field densities than ICNIRP-guidelines may influence certain psychobiological stress markers.

A “strong non-thermal character of biological effects of RFR has been documented” and “it is clear that the substantial overproduction of ROS in living cells under low intensity RFR exposure could cause a broad spectrum of health disorders and diseases, including cancer in humans. Undoubtedly, this calls for the further intensive research in the area, as well as to a precautionary approach in routine usage of wireless devices.”
It is no need to be alarmed. It is setup a very large safety margin for RFR and Wi-Fi radiation!
Large? Actually, There are not "large " safety margins like there are with most chemicals per EPA advice. In fact many scientists are stating that it only is 2.5 higher than a potential irreversible effect- not 50! that's an outdated statistic.
In public health safety factors for food and drink are commonly set at 100 fold or more. If anything, the safety margins are incredibly low in comparison to other hazardous chemicals. For more on the safety margin please read Submission to the FCC by the Environmental Health Trust. http://ehtrust.org/erroneous-comments-submitted-to-the-fcc-on-proposed-cellphone-radiation-standards-and-testing/
Worse- children absorb the radiation up to 20 times that of adults.
It is no evidence linking Hyperactivity and Emotional or Behavioural Issues with exposition to EMFs, Wi-Fi or RFR radiation.
Several research studies have shown that wireless radiation can impact behavior. According to these studies, effects seem to be most serious when the exposures occur during pregnancy or youth. ADHD and Autism rates have skyrocketed over the last two decades and many scientists think this rise is due to environmental exposures such as chemicals and electromagnetic fields.

The findings of the previous publication were replicated in this separate group of participants demonstrating that cell phone use was associated with behavioural problems at age 7 years in children, and this association was not limited to early users of the technology.

Tinnitus, feeling down/depressed and sleepiness at school were linked to cell phone use. "To safeguard young people's well-being, we suggest limiting their use of cellphones and cordless phones to less than 15 minutes daily, and employing a speaker-phone device for longer daily use."
Facts: Sensory Processing Disorder
Conservative estimates indicate 1 in 20 children in the United States has some form of Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD).
The majority of autistic children experience SPD. Estimates range from 75 - 100% co-occurence.
Technology puts children at risk for developing SPD.
Exposing children to wireless radiation (RF-EMF or EMR) puts them at risk for developing SPD.
Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) is a neurological condition affecting many children. Conservative estimates indicate 1 in 20 suffer from SPD (Miller 2004) while another study indicates 1 in 6 are affected (Ben-Sasson, Briggs-Gowan 2009). SPD can be a debilitating condition affecting a child's safety, self esteem, relationships, daily routines / activities, and their overall quality of life.
Most people are familiar with the 5 main senses - touch, taste, smell, hearing and sight. There are two other major senses - the vestibular and proprioceptive senses.
The vestibular sense is the first to fully develop at 12 -14 weeks of gestation and is the foundation for all other sensory systems in the body. The vestibular sense, located in the inner ear is responsible for our sense of balance and movement. It helps us to maintain an upright position, provides information on spatial orientation, and tells us how fast our body is moving.
The proprioceptive sense, also known as the “position sense”, includes receptors located in the skin, muscles, and joints. Our proprioceptive sense provides information about the position of our body parts without looking at them and helps gauge how much force/ pressure/ effort to use when completing a physical task.
All of our senses are closely linked and work in concert with the brain to achieve normal sensory integration. When a child suffers from SPD, their brain is either not receiving sensory input or not processing sensory input accurately. As a result, the child maybe under or over responsive to certain types of sensory experiences. When a child with SPD is overly responsive to a type of sensation, they will show signs of sensory defensiveness / avoidance. When a child is under-responsive to a type of sensation, they will exhibit sensory seeking behaviors. Individuals can have one or more impaired senses and they can exhibit both under and over responsive behaviors at different times.
Many children with SPD are misunderstood because of a lack of common knowledge about this disorder. They are often misdiagnosed or simply not diagnosed at all. There is a debate regarding whether SPD is actually a separate disorder or a characteristic of other disorders like Autism, Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Anxiety Disorder or Fragile X Syndrome. The majority of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), have sensory processing issues. In fact, it is one of the symptoms doctors look for when they diagnose children with Autism. Estimates range from 75% - 100% of ASD patients have SPD. Children can have SPD independently, without symptoms of Autism or another disorder.
Children with SPD often suffer from low-self esteem and other social-emotional issues because their condition makes it hard for them to concentrate, interact with others and have control over their own movements and lives. Children with proprioceptive difficulties for example, cannot get their body to do what their brain wants without a great deal of effort - something most of us take for granted.
While SPD is a neurological disorder, it maybe influenced by imbalances in other systems of the body. Because there are so many variations within the condition, it is highly probable there is more than one cause of SPD.
Please refer to the many excellent resources located on this page to learn more about SPD.
Exposure to RF-EMF & SPD
Exposing children to microwave radiation - in and of itself - puts them at risk for developing Sensory Processing Disorder. While no one is studying this correlation directly, here is some evidence to consider:
1.) Exposure to RF-EMF is the primary cause of Autism according to leading experts. The overwhelming majority of children with Autism, have SPD. In fact, it is one of the main indicators doctors use to diagnose Autism
2.) Sensory up-regulation is very common in people who suffer from Electro Hypersensitivity (EHS). This includes hyper-sensitivity to light, sounds, smells, tastes, skin sensitivity and multiple chemical sensitivities.
3.) Scientific evidence clearly indicates the vestibular apparatus is highly vulnerable to the impacts of exposure to RF-EMF. If the vestibular sense which is the foundational sense has been damaged, it throws off the other sensory systems of the body. Wireless radiation has also been shown to cause direct harm to other senses such as hearing and vision.
Facts: Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS)
Children and adults in countries all over the world are describing a cluster of symptoms after living in high wireless environments. These symptoms include headache, fatigue, stress, sleep disturbances and rashes.
Many scientists think that EHS can be understood as the body's response to cumulative exposure with some people showing more symptoms than others. Some people call this reaction “radio wave poisoning”. Our body is electrical so it makes sense that when we expose our bodies to unnatural levels of electricity, the cells will react .
Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS), also known as electromagnetic sensitivity and electrohypersensitivity, occurs when the amount of EMF radiation exceeds the body’s ability to deal with it. Everyone has an imaginary (but very real) ‘lifetime radiation cup’. The body can only tolerate ‘that amount’ of electromagnetic radiation.
Once that cup is full, because of many small deposits of EMF exposure or even one very large deposit, any exposure can be physically felt and is usually causing end result illnesses such as fibromyalgia, cancer, MS, chronic fatigue and more. See more EMF Disease info here.
The body was not designed to thrive in the constant presence of electric, magnetic, wireless/rf or ionizing radiation as many of us are dong today. EMF protection is a necessity!
Score as follows:
If you have the symptom described:
Frequently - score 2
Occasionally - score 1
Never - score 0
If you scored 15 to 25 out of 50, you may be one of the 35 per cent of people suffering from some degree of electro-stress. If you scored more than 25, you may have developed EHS. Our Website dedicated to EHS is here
