These Cell Phones Can Emit 28 Times More Radiation
June 18, 2011
Here’s some news about cell phones and cancer which even the mainstream media has found impossible to ignore. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), an arm of the World Health Organization (WHO), has declared after a review of the research that cell phones are possible cancer-causing agents. The expert panel ruled that there was some evidence that cell phone use was linked to two types of tumors—brain tumors (gliomas) and acoustic neuromas.
Some scientists say the IARC classification is still not strong enough, and that cell phone radiation should have been classified as a “Probable Human Carcinogen” based on the existing science, but evidently there were not enough studies to classify it more strongly at this time.
Alasdair Philips of Powerwatch in the U.K. says,
“The existing science is very clear there is risk of cancer from cell phone use. The warning might have been 2A if there were a larger number of animal studies showing this, or if there were a larger number of up-to-date human studies. It’s important to recognize the Interphone study on which the classification to a large extent relied was completed in 2004, and current studies reflecting usage patterns today would be far more damning, possibly earning a Class 1 “Human Carcinogen.”
However, according to Electromagnetic Health:
“Nonetheless, the IARC opinion is a breath of fresh air to many, and restores some integrity to a badly tarnished IARC … The IARC classification of cell phones as a ‘possible human carcinogen’ will now travel throughout the world, influencing governments far and wide, for the 1st time providing an official scientific basis on which governments, schools and parents can legitimately call for precautionary behavior regarding these radiation-emitting devices.”
Professor Dariusz Leszczynski, of the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority in Finland, explains why this should probably be considered big news:
“… for the first time a very prominent evaluation report states it so openly and clearly: RF-EMF is possibly carcinogenic to humans. One has to remember that IARC monographs are considered as ‘gold standard’ in evaluation of carcinogenicity of physical and chemical agents. If IARC says it so clearly then there must be sufficient scientific reason for it, or IARC would not put its reputation behind such claim.”
WHO’s Group 2 Classification of Cancer Risk
“This category includes agents for which, at one extreme, the degree of evidence of carcinogenicity in humans is almost sufficient, as well as those for which, at the other extreme, there are no human data but for which there is evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals. Agents are assigned to either Group 2A (probably carcinogenic to humans) or Group 2B (possibly carcinogenic to humans) on the basis of epidemiological and experimental evidence of carcinogenicity and mechanistic and other relevant data.
The terms probably carcinogenic and possibly carcinogenic have no quantitative significance and are used simply as descriptors of different levels of evidence of human carcinogenicity, with probably carcinogenic signifying a higher level of evidence than possibly carcinogenic.”
So as you can see, while some journalists and scientists are now downplaying the IARC decision, saying the IARC classification of cell phones as possibly carcinogenic does not mean cell phones cause cancer, and even preposterously claiming that there is no evidence of this at all, there is no uncertainty that IARC, a highly respected scientific body, is now clearly saying there is evidence of carcinogenicity, otherwise they would not have classified in category 2B.
See Citizens for Health commentary on this, including comments on the 2B classification by 20+ year veteran of the IARC, Dr. Annie J. Sasco of Bordeaux Segalen University, France
Camilla Rees of ElectromagneticHealth.org says,
“We expect to see continued spin from all directions, attempting to confuse the public and raise doubt, for some time to come. Thus it is especially important citizens be able to spot the misinformation and recognize there is an extraordinary propaganda machine in motion. We expect this will get LOUDER until industry is one day forced to cry ‘Uncle” under the expected landslide pressure lawsuits and from governments.”
Already, three senior members of Congress are calling on the General Accounting Office (GAO) to conduct a “thorough review” of the science and “adequacy” of current FCC exposure guidelines. These include Representatives Ed Markey (MA), Henry Waxman (CA) and Anna Eshoo (CA). And Reuters reports the Supreme Court is considering the fate of existing cell phone safety litigation in light of the WHO classification.
The IARC decision came only days after the Council of Europe, elders from 47 European countries, has called for a dramatic reduction in EMF exposure to humans from call phones and wireless technologies.
It is important to realize, however, that cell phones may not all be the same. Although all cell phones emit radiation, CDMA cell phones, such as those used by Sprint and Verizon, do not pulse their signals like the GSM phones used by AT&T and T-Mobile.
According to Dr. Joel Moskowitz, Director of the Center for Family and Community Health at the University of California, Berkeley, “GSM phones emit about 28 times more radiation on average compared to CDMA phones according to one published study.” Dr. Moskowitz recommends switching to a CDMA carrier if you want to reduce your radiation exposure.
Magda Havas, PhD of Trent University, Canada, agrees pulsed radiation is more dangerous:
“Pulsed radiation is much more harmful and the true intensity is not provided as it is “averaged” during a period of time (30 minutes for public exposure in US). The average of the pulse (maximum reading) and the minimum reading
gives a false low reading. Engineers like to measure averages but living organisms react to extremes so these average readings under estimate the potential for harm if the radiation is pulsed.”
Very interesting!!!! Is it time to act???????
Below is a Science fair project presented by a girl in a secondary school.
In it she took filtered water and divided it into two parts.
The first part she heated to boiling in a pan on the stove, and the second part she heated to boiling in a microwave.
Then after cooling she used the water to water two identical plants to see if there would be any difference in the growth between the normal boiled water and the water boiled in a microwave.
She was thinking that the structure or energy of the water may be compromised by microwave.
As it turned out, even she was amazed at the difference, after the experiment which was repeated by her class mates a number of times and had the same result.
It has been known for some years that the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about, it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it.
Microwaves don’t work different ways on different substances. Whatever you put into the microwave suffers the same destructive process. Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster. This movement causes friction which denatures the original make-up of the substance. It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.
So the body wraps it in fat cells to protect itself from the dead food or it eliminates it fast. Think of all the Mothers heating up milk in these ‘Safe’ appliances. What about the nurse in Canada that warmed up blood for a transfusion patient and accidentally killed him when the blood went in dead. But the makers say it’s safe. But proof is in the pictures of living plants dying!!!

Ten Reasons to dispose off your Microwave Oven
From the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and German scientific clinical studies, we can no longer ignore the microwave oven sitting in our kitchens. Based on this research, one can conclude this article with the following:
1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term – permanent – brain damage by ‘shorting out’ electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue].
2). The human body cannot metabolize [break down] the unknown by-products created in microwaved food.
3). Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.
4). The effects of microwaved food by-products are residual [long term, permanent] within the human body.
5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.
6). The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.
7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths [tumours]. This may explain the rapidly increased rate of colon cancer in UK and America .
8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.
9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations.
10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.
Parents Should have Knowledge about Computers
Are you the parent of a child or a teenager who uses the internet? If so, you may have some concerns. Yes, it is typically safe for your child to use the internet to do research for school projects, but did you also know that children and teens are now using it to communicate with their friends or other internet users? Using the internet at a young age can become a problem.
A good understanding of computer and internet use can better enable you to protect your child. Do you know that Internet Explorer, the browser that comes standard, has a free parental control option that just needs to be activated? A few easy steps and you can have certain websites blocked from your child. Unfortunately, you won’t know this if you don’t know all that you can know about the computer or the internet. Speaking of the internet, additional online safety tools for parents can be purchased online as well.
Here we list five reasons why internet use can be dangerous for children and teenagers:
Fake Identities Are Easy to Create
Making new friends online is easy, but it is much different than doing so in person. Why? Because you can’t see who is at the other end of the computer. The internet makes it easy for someone to be anybody else. For example, if your child is using social networking websites online, they have to enter in their age. They could easily lie themselves or they could be talking to someone else who is.
As the internet makes it easy to create a new, false identity. Often times, the individuals who lie about their ages are internet predators. They are the ones who target children, like yours. Unfortunately, many children, teenagers, and their parents cannot discover an internet predator until it is too late, like when the predators try to approach your child or contact them in person.
So Many Websites To Choose From
What is nice about the internet is that you have so many websites to choose from. In fact, that is why it is a good way to research school projects. But, having so many websites to choose from can be dangerous. Your child can gain access to social networking websites, adult chat rooms, pornographic websites, and websites that are violent in nature. Unless you have parental controls set up, your child can easily access any type of website with a standard internet search.
Not All Information Is Private
Unfortunately, many individuals, including both children and parents, do not know that the information that is posted online isn’t always private. For starters, most teens have their MySpace profiles set to public, as opposed to private. This means that anyone can view it. There are also online message boards that are indexed by the search engines. This means that others can view the conversations that were discussed, even years down the road.
Keep them in your Control
When your child uses the internet, they are the ones who are in control. This can be fine if your child is older and mature, but you honestly never know. You may ask your child not to communicate with strangers online, give out their phone numbers, or share pictures with strangers, but that doesn’t mean that they will follow your rules. For that reason, if you do let your child use the internet, be sure to monitor their use.
Discuss the facts about internet
One problem that many parents face is checking up on their children online. It is no secret that most children know their way around a computer nowadays. Sometimes being strict also can create a problem, they can delete the history, they can lie with you, these all things slowly create the distance between you and your children, so it’s better to spending the time on computer along with your kid, and making them understand the facts about internet may keep your kid safe.
اللَّهُمَّ انفَعْنِي بمَا علَّمْتِنَي وعَلِّمْني ما يَنفَعُنِي وزِدْني عِلْماً، الحَمدُ لله علَى كُلَّ حَالٍ، وأعُوذُ بالله مِن حَالِ أهْلِ النَّارِ
روى ابن ماجه فى “سننه” حديثاً فى صحته نظر: أنَّ النبى صلى الله عليه وسلم كان إذا صُدِع، غَلَّفَ رأسَه بالحنَّاءِ، ويقول: “إنَّهُ نافعٌ بإذنِ الله من الصُّداعِ”.
Narrated by Ibn Majah that whenever Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam suffered from a headache, he used to cover his head with Henna (Khazaab) and said, “Henna helps to relieve headache by the permission of Allah”.
headaches could be relieved by vomiting, eating, being calm and idle, using cold rags, cooling the body, elevating the temperature, avoiding noise, etc.
Knowing these facts, we should mention that treating headaches with Henna is partial and that it treats some types of headache, if the headache is caused by high fever and not by a spoiled substance that requires extraction. Crushed Henna blended with vinegar and applied to the forehead will relieve the headache. Henna soothes the nerves when used as a bandage. Finally, Henna is not only favorable to relieve headaches, but in addition for the various organs of the body and for the hot tumors and inflammations when used as a bandage.
عليّ بن أبي رافع، عن جدته سلمى خادم رسول اللّه صلى اللّه عليه وسلم قالت (ما كان أحد يشتكي إلى رسول اللّه صلى اللّه عليه وسلم وَجعاً في رأسه إلا قال: “احتجم” ولا وجعاً في رجليه إلا قال: “اخضبهما”) رواه داود وعنها أيضاً قالت: (كان لا يصيب النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قرحة ولا شوكة إلا وضع عليها الحناء) رواه الترمذي بإسناد حسن
Ali Bin Abi Rafe’e reported on behalf of his grandfather Salma Radi Allaho Anh (servant of Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam): “If someone complained to Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam for headache, our beloved Prophet asked him for Hijamah & if someone complained for pain in his legs, Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam asked him to anoint with HENNA“. (Abu Dawood) He also reports “Whenever Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam suffered with injury or thorn piercing, the wound was only treated with Henna”. (Tirmizi)
Henna is cold in the first degree and dry in the second degree
The Henna tree has two special qualities:
1. Decomposing due to its warm watery essence
2. Constipating due to the cold earthly essence it contains.
Henna in useful in treating burns and soothes the nerves when used as a bandage, as we have stated. When chewed; Henna helps treat the cankers and thrush that appear in the mouth. Henna heals Stomatitis (inflammation of the mucous membranes of the mouth) that appears in child’s mouth. Using Henna to bandage hot tumors helps, and it has a similar effect on open sores (similar to Dragon’s blood tree). When Henna is blended with pure wax and rose oil, it will help against the aches of the side (That ul Janb ~ Pleurisy).
When the symptoms of smallpox start to break out on children; and Henna is then applied on the bottom of their feet, the eyes will be immune from the sores that accompany smallpox. When the flower of Henna is placed between wool clothes, it will perfume it and will prevent mold or mite. Furthermore, when the leaves of Henna are submerged in fresh water, then squeezed and drunk for forty days, 20 measures each day with 10 measures of sugar or honey while eating the meat of a young eve (goat), it prevents LEPROSY with its amazing qualities.
Ibn Al Qayyam wrote about a man who complained from fissuring in his fingers and that he offered monetary rewards to whoever could cure him, but to no avail. Later on, a woman prescribed for him a drink of Henna for ten days but he could not understand the idea. Later on, he soaked Henna leaves in water and drank the water and his fingers were healed and regained their beauty.
Henna when used as an ointment for the fingers, polishes and strengthens them. Henna is useful when blended with butter and then used as a bandage for the hot tumors that drain yellow residue. Henna also benefits against chronic mange, helps the hair grow, makes it stronger and strengthens the head & brain. Finally, Henna helps against the blisters and the pustules that appear on the legs and feet and the rest of the body in general.
عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: (إن اليهود والنصارى لا يصبغون فخالفوهم) رواه البخاري ومسلم
Reported by Abu Hurairah Radi Allaho Anh that Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam said “Jews & Chiristians do not dye their hairs, so oppose them by applying the color (HENNA).”
Hennas was loved by Khulafa’-e-Rashideen, Abu Bakr & Umar Radi Allaho Anhuma.
وعن أنس رضي الله عنه قال: (اختضب أبو بكر بالحناء والكتم واختضب عمر بالحناء بحتاً أي صرفاً) رواه مسلم .
Reported by Anas Radi Allaho Anh “Abu Bakr Radi Allaho Anh used to color his hairs by HENNA & KATAM, & Umar Radi Allaho Anh used to dye only with HENNA”.
Imam Muhammad Ahmed Zahabi says that there are three essential factors for healing :
- Expulsion of fluids from the wounds
- Cessation of production (of any more fluids)
- Formation of healthy flesh (tissue granulation) to fill the gap created in the wound
Henna contains all these three factors and possesses very good healing properties.
اللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أَسْأَلْكَ عِلْماً نَافِعاً وعَمَلاً مُتَقَبَّلاً ورِزْقاً حَلالاً طَيِّباً
Faghiyah (Henna Blossom)
فَاغِيَةٌ: هى نَوْرُ الحِنَّاء، وهى من أطيب الرياحين، وقد روى البيهقى فى كتابه “شُعَب الإيمان” من حديث عبد الله بن بُريدَة، عن أبيه رضى الله عنه يرفعه: “سيدُ الرَّياحين فى الدنيا والآخرة الفاغِيَةُ”، وروى فيه أيضاً، عن أنس بن مالك رضى الله عنه، قال: “كان أحَبَّ الرَّياحين إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم الفاغِيَةُ”. والله أعلم بحال هذين الحديثين، فلا نشهد على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم بما لا نعلم صِحته.وهى معتدلةٌ فى الحر واليُبْس، فيها بعضُ القبض، وإذا وُضِعَتْ بين طىِّ ثياب الصوف حفظتْها من السوس، وتدخل فى مراهم الفالج والتمدد، ودُهنها يُحلِّل الأعضاء، ويُلَيِّن العصب.
Narrated by Al-Bayhaqi, on the authority of Abdullah Bin Buraidah’s father “The best of perfumes in this world & the hereafter is Faghiyah”. Furthermore, narrated by Al-Bayhaqi on the authority of Anas Bin Malik Radi Alaho Anh that he said, “The best perfumed loved by Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam was Faghiyah”. But we are not sure if these Hadith are authentic or not.
Faghiyah which is Henna blossom, is one of the best kinds of perfumes, Faghiyah is mild in its hotness and dryness, and constipates mildly. When Faghiyah is placed between folded wool clothes, it protects them from mold and mites. Faghiyah is used in ointments against facial paralysis and Aneurysm (an abnormal widening or ballooning of a portion of an artery due to weakness in the wall of the blood vessel), while its oil helps the organs and relaxes the nerves.
Be Aware About Maggi.. To All Maggi Lovers !!
DO NOT IGNORE THIS … Especially those fond of Maggi…
The correct way to cook instant noodles without harming our bodies and health:
- Boil the noodles in a pot of water.
- Once the noodles are cooked, take out the noodles, and throw away the water which contains wax.
- Boil another pot of water, add the cooked noodles into the hot boiling water and then turn off the stove.
- Only at this stage when the stove is off, and while the water is very hot, add the flavouring powder into the water, to make noodle soup.
- However, if you need dry noodles, remove the noodles and add the flavouring powder and toss it to get dry noodles.
If you buy plain hakka noodles which you make, you initially need to boil in water and discard the water. This will soften the noodles but to prevent it from sticking we need to add a tbsp of oil and also the noodles are deep fried partially to make them crunchy and then dusted with flour to prevent them from sticking while boiling. Hence when you buy the noodles they are already made unhealthy and this is the type we use to make stir fry noodles and the regular Maggie too is made the same way, plus they add MSG / Ajinomoto and other chemical preservatives.
