Power frequencies


Electric power systems work at around 50 Hz just above the naturally occurring frequency of around 7.83 Hz generated by the Earth. Our bodies are tuned into this low frequency so any frequency close to this is going to interfere with us, such as the 50 Hz AC mains power system used in the UK. ELF (Extremely Low Frequency) electromagnetic fields vibrating from 0.5 to 100 Hz, even if they are weaker than the Earth's field, interfere with the cues that keep our biological cycles properly timed. Chronic stress and impaired disease resistance results.
 
The frequencies that ELF AC systems use are very close to the natural brain rhythms of cerebrate creatures such as man. The pineal gland is the principal structure in the brain that is directly sensitive to the earth's magnetic field. As a result it functions abnormally when exposed to abnormal fields close to its own. Because the pineal gland produces a host of psychoactive chemicals (such as melatonin, dopamine, serotonin and others) its abnormal functioning can cause neurological and behavioural problems.


If you spend long periods of time close to a wiring circuit or appliance with a strong field such as a heater, clock radio or electric blanket you may be at risk. You may also be at risk if you live close to high voltage power lines (above and below ground) and their distribution transformers. The probable safe level for constant exposure now being discussed is 1 milligauss (less for children). It would seem appropriate to exercise "prudent avoidance" and limit the exposure to you, your family and work colleagues wherever possible.


  

I can monitor sources of electromagnetic radiation in your home or work environment and determine practical distances from them for minimum or safe exposure using commercial equipment available. Instruments are also available to check for radon gas.



Radio frequencies & microwaves


In addition to the aforementioned lower frequencies from our mains supply and appliances we now have health dangers from radio frequency devices such as WiFi, Smart Meters, mobile phone masts and mobile and cordless phones.
 

                                                     
WHAT CAN THE BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS BE?


Power frequencies
An electromagnetic field associated with power frequencies affects growing cells and acts as a cancer promoter. Cancer cells can increase their rate of growth significantly and develop more malignant characteristics. It also affects learning ability and behavioural and psychological mechanisms increasing the incidence of depression and suicide. Chronic exposure may lead to an increase in the incidence of brain tumours. Your brain’s EEG rhythms change when a light switch is operated nearby. A stress response occurs which, if prolonged, can lead to an immune-system deficiency, resulting in an increased incidence of infectious diseases and cancers. Because of the effects on growing cells, young children and babies are specially at risk. The link with cot death has been debated in Parliament. Studies have shown that risks of childhood cancer could increase.

Radio frequencies & microwaves

Many very eminent scientists across the world believe that there are biological changes and adverse health effects on people, animals and plants at levels of microwaves millions of times lower than recommended by the current regularity bodies. Have a look at the warnings in the small print of your mobile phone manual. Research has shown that microwave frequencies associated with radio frequencies can disable the blood brain barrier. Various researchers have also found that mobile and cordless phone frequencies affect brainwave activity and effect serious changes in human blood cells.



WHAT ARE THE RISKS?
Electricity and the appliances we use are part of our daily life. We are constantly using electrical appliances at home and at work, such as computers, photocopiers, facsimile machines, clock radio alarms, electric blankets, microwave ovens - all with the necessary AC mains transformers and wiring. We are also exposed to Radio frequency fields from mobile phones and their associated masts, WiFi from many sources including broadband Internet, cordless phones and other devices. Existing research indicates that it would be prudent that we take steps to reduce our exposure where possible, to these fields.

A small selection of  

STUDIES AND REPORTS…


Power frequencies


The biological and medical data currently available showing the danger of ELF AC mains power frequency magnetic fields is as conclusive as the data relating to cigarette smoking and lung cancer.
 

The European Parliament has passed a motion for a resolution on combating the harmful effects of Electromagnetic fields (non ionising radiation).
 
Since September 1992 Sweden has officially acted on the basis that there is a connection between exposure to power frequency magnetic fields and the incidence of cancer, in particular childhood cancer.
 

In 1990 the United States Environmental Protection Agency stated: "In conclusion , after an examination of the available data over the past 15 years, there is evidence of a positive association of exposure to magnetic fields with certain site-specific cancers, namely leukaemia, cancer of the central nervous system and, to a lesser extent, lymphomas. This is supported by many studies of children and adults across many different populations and sub-groups"  


Radio frequencies & microwaves


A  report by German doctors on a group of 1,000 patients in the town of Naila showed a threefold threshold of increased risk of cancer in those living within 400 metres of a mobile phone base station, when compared to people living further away.



Professor Darius Leszczynski’s team at the Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority reported in June 2002 that exposing human cells to one hour mobile phone radiation triggered a response which normally only occurs when cells are been damaged, allowing tiny molecules to pass through the blood brain barrier into brain tissue. He said: “If this were to occur repeatedly over a long period of time it might cause brain tissue damage”. Leszczynski continued: “We need further studies looking at real people to see if the blood brain barrier is affected… If it does happen it could lead to disturbances such as headaches, feeling tired or problems with sleeping.” He added: “What I believe is that we will find these leaks occur in humans”



Dr Ray Tice and Graham Hook, of Integrated Laboratory Systems in North Carolina, found serious changes in human blood cells following exposure to four different types of cell phone signals. The nuclei of many red blood cells had been split into little bits known as micronuclei - direct evidence of genetic damage to the cells. This was a well controlled and repeated set of experiments that showed a two to eightfold increase in micronuclei in the blood after exposure to cell phone type microwave radiation for 24 hours. The relationship between the presence of micronuclei and cancer is so strong that doctors around the world use tests for micronuclei to identify patients likely to develop cancer.
