Optic nerve stimulation - a theory on how Cell Phone Towers wake people up at night
Photos of persons using cell phones show the depth of signal penetration in the head area. This is known as SAR or Signal Absorption Rate. It is observed that the microwave emissions do not pass through the body but rather enter it in varying depths usually not more than one-half to one inch. This depends on the cell phones SAR rating. It is highly unlikely that any microwaves from Cell Phone Towers pass all the way through the human body. The reason is that the human body is mostly made up of water and water is a sponge that absorbs the radiation and converts it into heat.
Most of the damage to the human body from Cell Phones and Cell Phone Towers is likely to occur within one inch of the surface of the skin. This is deep enough to adversely affect everything from the optic nerve to eyesight to hearing to a man's sperm viability.
At the back of the eye is the optic nerve that carries electrical light impulses to the brain. The theory of sleep interruption is simple - that microwave radiation acts like a form of invisible light stimulating the optic nerve while people sleep and has the same effect on the brain as if someone was pointing a flashlight into their eyes while they are sleeping. This electrical stimulation signals the brain that it is daylight and time to wake up. One result is a rapid fall in melatonin production - a hormone needed to induce and sustain deep restful sleep.
To test the theory that a person's head is the most important part of the body to protect from microwave radiation to prevent sleep interruption, I asked Bob, who lives in Hawaii, to place a tall mirror at the head of his bed.
He reported that he wakes up after 2 hours of sleep every night. He also states he is surrounded by Cell Phone Towers. He hung the mirror on the wall next to the pillow where he sleeps. The very first night he reported the first sleep interruption occurred after five hours instead of the usual two.
Since then, 4 other persons have reported a significant increase in the time before their first sleep interruption by hanging an aluminized Mylar blanket at the head of their bed.
One person who said he woke up every hour or two now says he wakes up only once a night and after he has first slept for 6 hours straight. Another person said that the number of times he wakes up at night has been reduced from 4 or 5 to 1 or 2.
The Mylar blankets that reflect microwave radiation are hung near the ceiling at the head of the bed. Each blanket is about 56 inches wide by 84 inches high. Only one blanket is used. Cost is about $5 each. A heavy-duty Mylar blanket weighing about 2 ounces each was used in these experiments.
The mirror works because it is silver coated on the backside and reflects the radiation away from a person's head. A person's head is usually 6 to 12 inches from the wall where the mirror or Mylar blanket is installed. The use of aluminum foil taped to the wall should have the same effects. The mirror, Mylar blanket or aluminum foil will work better if it is located between the person's head and the nearest Cell Phone Tower.
If want to keep all microwave radiation out of your bedroom, then you will need to make a complete Faraday Cage by covering the ceiling and all 4 walls with aluminum foiled insulation and the windows with aluminum blinds. You could use other conductors of electricity like copper or silver in place of aluminum.
Smart Meters add to the electrical smog affecting persons with ES
Smart Meters by Cellnet and other companies are another source of electromagnetic pollution. They are attached to electric meters to measure usage of electricity by consumers and businesses. While transmission of data once a month or even once a day would not be unreasonable, some of these meters transmit data up to 3 times a minute 24/7.
A Smart Meter attached to an electric meter near a bedroom is another source of microwave radiation that could interrupt the sleep of anyone who is electrically sensitive (ES). The signals could be blocked from coming into a house by placing a large mirror on the wall inside the house opposite the electric meter. This would reflect the signals away from the house.
An even greater threat to the health of a community is from WI-FI or high-speed wireless broadband used to support laptop computers that transmit significant quantities of data.
Converting a bedroom or whole house into a Faraday Cage (metal cage) can protect you from all these sources of electromagnetic pollution.

Electropollution causes blood sugar spikes - type 3 diabetes
By Mike Adams
(NaturalNews.com) Most people are familiar with type-1 diabetes and type-2 diabetes, but did you know researchers have discovered a third type of diabetes? Type-3 diabetes, as they are calling it, affects people who are extra sensitive to electrical devices that emit "dirty" electricity.
Type-3 diabetics actually experience spikes in blood sugar and an increased heart rate when exposed to electrical pollution ("electropollution") from things like computers, televisions, cordless and mobile phones, and even compact fluorescent light bulbs.
Dr. Magda Havas, a PhD from Trent University in Canada, recently published the results of a study she conducted on the relationship between electromagnetic fields and diabetes in Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine. In it, she explains how she and her team came to discover this about why electropollution is so dangerous for many people.
Blood sugar goes haywire
One of the most interesting finding in her study was that electro-sensitive people whose blood sugar decreases when they go for a walk outdoors actually experience an increase in blood sugar when walking on a treadmill.
Treadmills are electrical devices that emit electrical pollution. But interestingly, even the physical exertion of walking on the treadmill did not make up for the blood sugar spiking effect of the EMFs emitted by the treadmills. Despite the exercise, in other words, type-3 diabetics experienced significant spikes in blood sugar when walking on the treadmill.
Dirty electricity is bad for everyone, but it is especially bad for people who are type-3 diabetics. And Dr. Havas explains in her study that even having an electrical device plugged into the wall near someone who is type-3 diabetic can cause them problems.
We need to rethink environmental influences of modern living
I find this research fascinating, not only because it proves that electromagnetic waves impact blood sugar and heart rate, but because there could be thousands, if not millions, of diabetics who may be suffering from a diabetes misdiagnosis right now.
The reason I'm bringing this up is because a 54 year-old pre-diabetic man who participated in the study was found to experience serious blood sugar spikes only when he was working in an urban environment around power lines or on his computer. When he was out camping away from the city, his blood sugar was just fine.
The man tested his blood sugar every morning in different situations and his levels were always higher when electrical fields were nearby. On one of the mornings, he forgot to test himself prior to beginning work on the computer. His blood sugar levels were higher than normal, registering around 205 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL). But after stepping away from the computer for only ten minutes, his levels dropped nearly 20 mg/dL.
The degree to which electromagnetic pollution affects the body is clearly quite astonishing, and this study illustrates that. But it makes you wonder how many people have diabetes simply because of EMF pollution (and not solely due to their diet or lack of exercise, as we have been taught).
High EMFs gave this woman diabetes
Take the case of the 80 year-old woman whose house tested high for EMF pollution. Prior to installing a system of filters around her house designed to reduce "electro-smog" levels, her blood sugar was high and she was using insulin each day in order to balance her blood sugar levels. After installing the filters (which reduced EMF pollution by roughly 98 percent), the woman's blood sugar levels dropped by 33 percent and her insulin requirements plunged a whopping 75 percent!
This idea that reducing the electropollution of your house could drastically reduce a patient's need for insulin has never even registered in conventional (mainstream) medicine. Yet it could be a crucial understanding for tens of millions of diabetics around the world.
The study mentioned here classifies the type of diabetes caused by electromagnetic pollution as type-3 diabetes. While those with type-1 or type-2 diabetes can also have type-3, the data seems to indicate that a person can also exclusively have type-3 without any overlay of the other two types. In other words, their diabetes may be solely due to electromagnetic pollution and since pre-diabetics can be pushed over the edge by EMF pollution, there is no telling how many people actually have type-3 rather than type-2 diabetes.
If you ask most mainstream medical "professionals", they will deny that type-3 diabetes even exists. According to most of them, the idea that electromagnetic pollution contributes to disease is some sort of whacked out conspiracy theory. But there's more to the study that you need to know..
Wireless signals interfere with the heart
For one portion of the study, Dr. Havas had patients lie down on a bed with a cordless phone placed two feet away from their heads. The phone was plugged into the wall, but for each testing session, the electricity was either on or off.
Neither the patient nor the doctor administering the test was aware of whether or not the phone was live or dead during each session. (This is what is known as a double-blind study, the type most respected in clinical trials).
At the completion of that part of the study, researchers observed that EMF-sensitive patients experienced significant increases in their heart rates during the sessions when the phone was being powered and emitting radio signals. When it was turned off, these same patients returned back to their normal heart rates almost instantaneously.
Why is this important? First of all, a double-blind study is the litmus test used in the medical profession to verify that a study is legitimate. Since nobody involved knew when the power was on or off, the results are completely unbiased and hold a lot more sway than if it had been conducted a different way.
Secondly, it illustrates that EMF pollution really does speed up the heart rates of certain people. And since a rapid pulse is one of the many symptoms of diabetes, it seems reasonable to suspect that EMF pollution could be a fundamental cause of diabetic symptoms for a significant portion of the diabetic population.
This makes you wonder about the harm caused by mammograms, CT scans and other medical scanning technologies that blast the body with electromagnetic radiation, doesn't it?
Most of the recent research on EMF pollution has focused on cell phones, which makes sense because people take their cell phones with them everywhere they go and when they use them, they often hold them right next to their skulls. Cell phone radiation is probably one of the most dangerous EMF polluters because the devices remain in very close contact with the body for long periods of time.
A 2008 study published in New Scientist revealed that cell phone radiation causes human cell proteins to improperly express themselves. Similar studies also found that the radiation damages living DNA, creates leakages in the blood-brain barrier, and increases estrogen and adrenaline levels, disrupting hormone balance.
According to one statistic from a 2008 study, adults who use a cell phone over the course of a decade increase their chances of developing brain cancer by 40 percent. Even worse, a Swedish study found that people who start using a cell phone before the age of 20 increase their risk of developing a brain tumor by 500 percent!
Some solutions for electromagnetic pollution
Keeping Wi-Fi devices like cell phones and wireless routers away from your body as much as possible is another good idea. If you have a wireless router at home, place it away from areas where people sleep or spend a lot of time. Even having it just a few feet farther away can make a big difference in a reduction of the electropollution exposure from it.
When charging your cell phone, plug it in across the room from you. Especially at night when you are sleeping, it is best to turn off as many electrical devices as possible and to keep them away from your bed when sleeping. And beware of electric blankets: They produce a very strong electromagnetic field.
Try to use the speakerphone as much as possible when talking on the phone, or use an "air-tube" device that stops the signal short before it reaches your head. Never walk around with an idle bluetooth attached to your head, because these devices deliver a steady stream of EMF radiation directly into your head. I would recommend not using one at all, but if you do use one, take it off when not in use.
It's also a good idea to keep your phone in your pocket or purse only when necessary, and to keep it away from your body at all other times. Cell phones are intermittently communicating with network towers, so the closer they are to our bodies, the more radiation we are exposed to. So if you're not going to be using it for a while, just turn it off.
The reason I mention outdoor exercise is because, just like in the study, certain indoor exercise equipment like treadmills can actually cause more harm than good (for certain people). So go outside and take a walk or a jog. The sunshine will boost your vitamin D levels and the fresh air will help rejuvenate your system. (Just be sure to stay away from the power lines.)

FDA loses in federal court over censorship of truthful health claims that selenium helps prevent 6 types of cancer
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor
(NaturalNews) Health freedom has just been handed a significant victory by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, which ruled last week that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) violated the First Amendment rights of a nutritional supplement company when it censored truthful, scientifically-backed claims about how selenium can help reduce the risk of cancer. See the ANH announcement at: http://www.anh-usa.org
Essentially, the FDA applied its doctrine of censorship to these selenium supplements in the same way it oppresses truthful and scientifically-supported health claims across all dietary supplements. The purpose of the FDA's censorship of truthful information about the health benefits of dietary supplements, as NaturalNews readers already know, is to keep the American people nutritionally illiterate and protect the profits of the pharmaceutical industry.
In this court case, ALLIANCE FOR NATURAL HEALTH, et al. vs. KATHLEEN SEBELIUS, et al., the judge ruled that the FDA violated the First Amendment rights of the plaintiffs by restricting their free speech about the anti-cancer benefits of their selenium supplements.
As explained by health freedom attorney Jonathan Emord who argued the case before the Court:
"The decision... reaffirms that FDA is subject to the strictures of the First Amendment in its evaluation of health claims and it faults FDA for failing to follow that standard, holding its suppression of the selenium-cancer risk reduction claims unconstitutional."
Emord goes onto explain:
"The Court concludes that the FDA... has not provided any empirical evidence, such as 'studies' or 'anecdotal evidence,' that consumers would be misled by... plaintiffs' claims were they accompanied by qualifications. Moreover, the explanation the FDA offers to demonstrate that plaintiffs' claims are misleading - that the claims leave out pertinent information - is not support for banning the claims entirely..."
Attorney Jonathan Emord from Emord & Associates is widely regarded as one of the most successful and influential attorneys battling the FDA over free speech and health freedoms.

Emord is also the author of a hugely important book that I strongly recommend. It's called Global Censorship of Health Information, and you can find it here: http://www.amazon.com/Global-Censorship-Health-Information-Jonathan/dp
What it means for health freedom
The upshot of this decision is that the FDA has just been handed a significant defeat that will set a precedent for other dietary supplement companies to make their own truthful, scientifically-supported health claims.
The FDA, of course, recognizes no law other than its own, so it will likely continue to try to terrorize nutritional supplement companies with its usual threats of imprisonment of company founders and seizure of products unless companies voluntarily agree to comply with the FDA's censorship schemes. However, this court decision may finally turn the tide against the FDA's campaign of ignorance that has, for decades, sought to keep the American people nutritionally illiterate while suppressing the dietary supplements industry.
Btu achieving a lasting victory over the FDA will require nutritional supplement companies to stop being intimidated by the FDA and start making truthful, scientifically-supported claims -- and then stand behind those claims with a commitment to sue the FDA if they are threatened with censorship. Until now, most nutritional supplement and vitamin companies have been so intimidated by the FDA that they dared not challenge the FDA's authority -- even when they knew the FDA was flat-out wrong!
The FDA, you see, can always threaten a company using "terrorism-style" tactics such as sending threatening letters that promise to arrest the owners, imprison them, destroy their business, seize their customer records, confiscate their inventory, etc. These tactics have all been used by the FDA to threaten health product companies operating in the United States. See how the FDA runs its own criminal extortion racket right here: http://www.naturalnews.com/024567_health_the_FDA_websites.html

These Gestapo-style FDA tactics have been frighteningly effective, given that most U.S. companies don't have the financial resources to engage in a lengthy legal battle with the FDA in order to stand up for their First Amendment rights. That's why this victory by the Alliance for Natural Health is so important: It provides a legal wedge by which other companies can now begin to stand up for their own First Amendment rights, too. This could be the beginning of the end of FDA censorship of truthful, scientifically-supported health claims. What we want: Free Speech, not fraudulent speech
As the editor of NaturalNews, I want to be perfectly clear what we stand for here. I do not support a Wild West approach to free speech about supplements where any company can claim anything they want whether it's true or not. That can get entirely out of hand, and it would only encourage the kind of marketing fraud we now see rampant in the pharmaceutical industry.
What I support is truthful health claims that can be backed by a minimum of three articles published in peer-reviewed science journals. This threshold of scientifically credibility is high enough to avoid outright fraudulent quack claims while still allowing truthful claims to be reasonably met through scientific inquiry. If such a rule were adopted, it would open the industry to making a wealth of truthful claims about the beneficial effects of foods, herbs and supplements.
The FDA's current oppression of health claims about cherries and walnuts, for example, would cease. Both the FDA and FTC have been attempting to suppress the truth about cherries for many years, intimidating cherry product companies with all sorts of threats to try to force them to remove any links to scientific information about the health benefits of cherries. To learn more, see: http://www.naturalnews.com/019366.html
The federal government has also declared war on truthful speech about the health benefits of walnuts. Read more here: http://www.naturalnews.com/028879
Why Free Speech can save America from sick-care bankruptcy
Most U.S. consumers have no idea that the FDA is operating as a rogue agency, attempting to destroy nutritional knowledge and intentionally keep consumers in the dark about the health benefits of natural products.
Given that our nation's sick-care system is driving us all into bankruptcy, it would seem more important than ever to allow consumers to learn how to prevent disease and improve their own health through safe, natural and low-cost therapies involving healing foods and nutritional supplements.
Coincidentally, that is exactly where America is today: Living under an oppressive, monopolized sick-care system that attempts to criminalize truthful speech about the health benefits of natural products. See my CounterThink Cartoon entitled, The New Mr. America: http://www.counterthink.com/The_New_Mr_America.asp
And yet natural products are the solution to America's health care problems! Read my special report: Nutrition Can Save America! right here (it's free) Censorship of healing foods
There's no question about it: America will be happier, healthier, stronger and more financially solvent if we end FDA censorship and take steps to protect the First Amendment rights of nutritional supplement companies.
NaturalNews will continue to work alongside the Alliance for Natural Health to help make this dream a reality. You can learn more about the ANH at http://www.anh-usa.org
The European branch of this organization is found at anh-europe.org
Please consider supporting the ANH. It is, in my opinion, one of the most important and effective health freedom organizations on the planet. They are doing fantastic work and they need your financial support to continue fighting (and winning!) these battles against FDA ignorance, tyranny, censorship and oppression.
What you can do right now to help halt the FDA's reign of terror
As a consumer, you can use your voice to help stop the FDA from destroying the natural products marketplace. Simply go to Reform FDA and sign the petition there.
It's sponsored by the American Association for Health Freedom (AAHF), an organization fighting to end the FDA's tyrannical rule over the health of the American people.
Sign that petition and spread the word: NaturalNews and the AAHF are working together to bring back honesty, freedom and free speech to the health supplements industry, and we need your help to get it done.
You can also protest the FDA with your Congressperson or Senator. Contact them and insist that they support efforts to end the reign of FDA tyranny and reestablish Free Speech rights for nutritional supplement companies.
It is time to stand up for your health freedoms, or lose them forever. Please join me in this courageous stand against tyranny and oppression.

GM crops cause liver and kidney damage
A report published in the International Journal of Microbiology has verified once again that Monsanto's genetically modified (GM) crops are causing severe health problems. A legal challenge issued against Monsanto forced the multi-national agriculture giant to release raw data revealing that animals fed its patented GM corn suffered liver and kidney damage within just three months.
Adding to the mounting evidence that GM crops are dangerous all around, this information provides a damning indictment against Monsanto which continually insists that its GM products are safe. Not only are GM crops proving disastrous for the environment, but study after study, including those conducted by Monsanto itself, is showing that GM foods are detrimental to health.
Monsanto's data indicated that the company had conducted tests on three varieties of its GM corn, two of which contain the dangerous Bt protein, and one designed specifically to resist Monsanto's Roundup herbicide. All three are widely grown in the United States while only one is currently grown in Europe.
Dr. Gilles-Eric Seralini, a French researcher from the University of Caen, was tasked with examining the data and providing a review. While stopping short of declaring GM crops to be toxic, he did emphasize that chronic negative effects were apparent and that there were "statistically significant" indications of kidney and liver damage.
The specific effects observed in test rats included a buildup of hormones in the blood, indicating that their liver and kidneys were not functioning properly. One variety of the corn led to elevated blood sugar levels and increased triglyceride levels in female rats given it.
Dr. Seralini concluded that, because GM crops are foreign substances that have never been a part of a normal diet, there is no telling what the long-term effects of consumption will be on people. In animals, significant disruption of normal bodily function has been observed even in the short term.
Genetically manipulated food crops are not fit for human consumption and should not be classified as food. No legitimate study has ever proven them to be safe or nutritious. The burden of proof is on the producers of such crops to verify their safety and, to date, all data has revealed that they are unsafe. Claims that GM foods will end world hunger are baseless, propagated only by those that have a financial interest in converting the world's food supply to their own patented varieties in order to control it.
Sources for this story include: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...
Notice: Corn that is genetically modified to produce its own pesticide, the BT protein, to kill the ear worm leaves the toxin in the corn that is then consumed by farm animals and GM corn is also used in pet food for dogs. As a result, irreparable damage to the health of farm animals and pets is now an unfortunate reality.
A diet fit for humans and pets should avoid GM corn and include grass fed beef, free range chickens, wild caught fish, organic vegetables including peas and carrots, brown rice or starchy vegetables.
BPA causes leaky gut syndrome
(NaturalNews) The widespread toxin bisphenol-A (BPA) damages the intestines and may lead to a painful condition known as leaky gut syndrome, according to a study conducted by researchers from the National Institute of Agronomic Research researchers in Toulouse, France, and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy Sciences.
The study "shows the very high sensitivity on the intestine of BPA," the National Institute of Agronomic Research said. BPA is used to make hard clear plastics for products such as water and baby bottles. It is also used to make dental sealants and composites, and is in the liners food cans, beverages and infant formula. More than 130 studies have linked the hormone-mimicking chemical to a wide variety of health problems, including cancers, birth and reproductive defects, obesity, early puberty onset, behavior disorders and brain damage.
In the new study, researchers exposed both living rats and human intestinal cells to a dose of BPA 10 times lower than that currently considered safe by most governments. They found that the permeability of intestinal cells in both humans and rats decreased upon exposure to the chemical. The intestinal lining developed damage characteristic of the condition known both as "poor intestinal permeability" and "leaky gut syndrome."
Normally, a mucus lining prevents undigested substances from passing through the intestinal lining and into the bloodstream. When this lining is damaged, however, toxic substances and foreign pathogens can enter the body more easily. Because the intestinal lining also contains immunoglobin A, its disruption can affect the entire body's immune system.
People with leaky gut syndrome often experience abdominal pain, digestive upset, rashes, hampered immune function and chronic muscle pain. Damage to the intestinal lining can cause poor nutrient absorption, leading to vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
Adding to the body of evidence that BPA is particularly dangerous to developing fetuses and children, the researchers found that exposure to BPA in utero or immediately after birth significantly increased rats' risk of developing severe intestinal inflammation as adults.
Wisconsin had recently banned BPA in plastic bottles for infants. The Journal -Sentinel of Milwaukee WI is to be credited for this accomplishment due to a series of articles they published on the hazards of BPA in the past 3 years. Other states have also passed laws restricting the use of BPA. In Milwaukee, the Journal Sentinel series on BPA has been highly critical of the FDA for their cozy relationship with the plastics industry and their refusal to take serious independent studies on the hazards of BPA.
