Raising awareness & lobbying for safer wireless technology

Biological Effects from Microwave Radiation:

  • Permeability of the blood brain barrier
  • Reduction in melatonin (a power antioxidant that inhibits cancer)
  • Enhanced free radical activity (increased possibility of cancer)
  • Increased calcium flux
  • Increase in cancer (including brain tumour risk from cell phones)
  • DNA damage
  • Effects on sperm
  • Induced stress proteins
  • Increased miscarriage
  • Nerve damage

Health effects found to be associated with exposure to wireless devices include:

Neurological:

  • Headaches, migraines
  • Dizziness/nausea
  • Memory and concentration difficulties
  • Insomnia
  • Depression/anxiety, irritability, hyperactivity
  • Fatigue/weakness
  • Numbness/tingling

Eyes:

  • Pressure in the eyes, blurred vision

Ears:

  • Tinnitus/ringing in the ears

Other:

  • Burning skin and skin rashes
  • Nosebleeds
  • Increases in allergies and multiple chemical sensitivities

 

Long-term effects – neurological diseases, male sterility, cancer, miscarriage, thyroid dysfunction, autism and electrohypersensitivity (EHS).
