How Can Cell Phone Radiation Affect Your Body?
The near-field radiation plume
“First, we are concerned about the dangers from two different types of radiation associated with cell phones: the near-field radiation plume and a more subtle far-field contribution. The near-field plume penetrates your body about six inches from the center of the phone`s antenna. If it`s against your head, it penetrates your brain. If it`s on your waist, it penetrates the important blood- forming flat bones of your hips. This plume is like a “bull in a china closet” and it overtakes all of our body`s natural defenses against this type of exposure. We now know that this near-field plume leads to dysfunction such as leakage in the protective blood brain barrier and genetic damage, including interference with DNA repair. These biological effects lead to conditions ranging from brain tumors to learning difficulties in children”.
The far-field contribution
“This field produces subtle effects for most people, but the effects are insidious and accumulate over time. Background levels of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) have increased dramatically over the past decade and cell phones are now a major contributor to that background load. The mechanism leading to the danger is interference with the human biofield ( the energies generated as part of our metabolism.) Our biofield is a major determinant of overall health and wellness. The increasing level of environmental EMR competes with our own energies and produces a general compromise of our own physiological processes. Over time, this deterioration can lead to a host of symptoms ranging from hyperactivity and attention deficit behavior to lowered immune responses. Some people are extremely sensitive to this type of radiation and electro-sensitivity prevalence is now on the rise around the world. This problem will continue to worsen over time”.
