Health Issues Associated With Radiation
Corinne Allen Ph.D.
The subject of electrosensitivity from electromagnetic frequencies is causing a great deal of controversy. However, there is enough anecdotal evidence to support funding new research in this field concerning EMF’s.
Cell phones towers are being blamed for a considerable amount of radiation, and health issues are being attributed to it. The health issues are showing up with men and women, and particularly children. Because children’s skulls are thinner, some researchers believe they are more in danger.
The health problems that have been linked in one way or another include Attention Deficit Disorders, Aging, Alzheimer’s, Autism, Aspergers, changes in blood, passing the blood brain barrier with toxins, changes in blood pressure, brain cancer, breast cancer, other
kinds of cancers, cataracts, chances in cells, chromosomal damage, dizziness, changes in DNA, earaches, changes in EEG, all kinds of reactions in people who have electromagnetic sensitivity, eye cancer, fatigue, changes in genes, headaches, weakness in the heart, heat effects, moving heavy metals into the brain, issues with the immune system, leukemia, lymphoma, MCS, memory loss, miscarriages, effects on nerves, neuromas, and neurons, development of oncogenes, pressure, risk of disease in general, various sensations, effects on signaling enzymes, stress, sweat, tumors, and changes in vision.
Because these health problems could have a multitude of causes, it is impossible to zero in on radiation as the one cause. However, the radiation issue is complex. It seems to have an indirect effect on the cell membrane and signaling enzymes so that the body is weakened in ways that may be unpredictable and different for different people.
It is these differences that makes some of the research so conflicting, and some of the reasons that the problem is so insidious. It is affecting people in ways we may not truly understand.
The following health issues, and more, have been associated with cell phone radiation. There is nothing definitive about a direct cause and effect. In fact, it appears that radiation affects the cells in subtle ways that may show a variety of symptoms.
Attention Deficit Disorder
Autism / Asperger’s Syndrome
Changes in Circadian rhythms
