The Decisive Human Experiment for EMF: The iNterNet of Things

Finally!                                                                                  The Decisive Human Experiment                                 with Electromagnetic Field Radiation!

This is Great! Tens of millions of humans in a study testing their exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF).                                                                                                                                                     People will be literally dropping like flies.   

Fly

Here’s the thing on this iNterNet of Things (aka Internet of Everything);             as of 2015, we’re already exposed to a Quintillion times more radiation (man-made, non-ionizing radiation i.e. cellphone, towers, wi-fi, smart meters etc.) than our grandparents and their parents.

To paraphrase an old TV ad, Madge, “You’re Swimmin’ in it!” Your Soaking In It

Now along comes the iNterNet of Things

Cisco says this market will become a $ 19 Trillion Industry in the next decade. http://bit.ly/19Trillion

This iNterNet of Things is your fridge ‘talking’ to your iron and washing machine and them chuckling about your time spent with the toilet seat who is then sharing your poop data with your Smart Meter who is talking to 200 other Smart Meters up to 18,000 times a day and up to a 30 mile radius.

And you DID hear about SPY TV?   This is Samsung’s new TV which listens and records and shares when the microphone is on?Spy tv

 

 

 

 

Then Hello Barbie… that rat spy will ensure you (& your kids) have no secrets!

Hello Barbie

 

All Things Connected All the Time.                                                     This is MASSIVE amount of New Radiation in Your Home.

Shout out to any physicist, anywhere who may be capable of calculating the increase in EMF radiation associated with this staggering new ocean of electronic smog.cropped-cell-towerpicpreentionmagazine.jpg

Fortunately or unfortunately – those scoffing at the hazard of electromagnetic fields will be first in line. The “electrosensitive” will continue to seek out sanctuary in remaining low-EMF enclaves while all the “early adopters” can’t wait for this trans-formative new technology.

They get to be the high-tech canaries in the coal mines. Except, instead of ONE canary going down the mine to prove air quality – there will tens of millions at once. I predict here the health results will be unprecedented.Canary

To me, this is The Decisive Human Experiment for EMF

All the world’s largest corporations – who’ve been dodging EMF lawsuits for 20 years – will then be dragged into court. The cellphone-brain tumor lawsuits have been bungled or otherwise dragging since 1993. Recently, 29 lawsuits were approved to proceed in Superior Court in Washington, D.C., but they have been masters of obstruction and obfuscation since day one.

iNterNet of Things as health catalyst will move rapidly, driven by the public as they overwhelm the politicians, government agencies, hospitals as well as courts. Lloy’ds of London, Swiss RE (insurer’s of the insurers)  long ago inserted the     ‘No EMF’ coverage clause and recently phone company’s insurers started too.

I’ve often said, ‘We will have a safe level of EMF about when we can take a shuttlebus to Mars’. This radically advances that schedule. Regrettably not for the shuttlebus to Mars but rather the legislation for safe EMF levels resulting from widespread health havoc delivered by iNterNet of Things.

Shuttlebus to Mars

I propose the iNterNet of Things will indeed INTERN us all                                           in a NET  of Toxic EMF Radiation.

Intern: Confine (someone) as a prisoner,                                                     especially for political or military reasons.
synonyms: confine, detain, hold (captive), lock up, imprison, incarcerate,impound, jail;

informalput away
“the refugees were interned in camps”

This iNterNet of Things will save countless millions of lives – inadvertently and ironically – after it takes out a few million.

But hey, ya wanna great omelette … ya gotta break a few eggs!

iNterNet of Things    a balance of good and bad.

Electropolis; the Transformer Killed Steve Jobs

‘Technology Killed Steve Jobs’ was a post to lay bare the obvious to those oblivious. To wit, no one, anywhere had more electromagnetic field radiation exposure every day than Steve Jobs. To even the ‘oblivious’ or uninitiated…  It’s a given.

After watching 60 Minutes interview with Steve Jobs biographer Walter Isaacson, we can now narrow down the toxic energetic culprit.

Steve Jobs – “There are downsides to everything; there are unintended consequences to everything. The most corrosive piece of technology that I’ve ever seen is called television – but then, again, television, at its best, is magnificent”.
(Close, very close … but no cigar at the Electropolis carnival)

Aside from the steady stream of products which would have necessitated multiple radiating devices on-self for almost 24-7 was this huge and nasty transformer.

Not this one, no.

This is a harmless toy used for the express purpose of entertaining children (and adults) spurring their interest in science fiction and the future. This other one is a remnant of the past, a reminder that as we rush headlong into the future without a thought for the by-products of our techno-lust we have yet to fully account for the health impacts of the Electropolis

This Transformer (below) Killed Steve Jobs!

Steve Jobs spent the last twenty years of his life in a simple country house at the corner of Santa Rita and Waverly St. in Palo Alto.

The thing is though, the lot was rather modest in size and his bedroom was <50 feet from the street and an electrical transformer                 i.e. Way Too Close.

…………………….

Go to Google Maps, put in “Santa Rita and Waverly St., Palo Alto, CA”

 Even people living in a cave have heard of the debate about cellphones and brain tumors, specifically with prolonged use.

The same metaphorical cave-dwellers (when it comes to health) have also seen studies/stories the last 20 years on power lines and cancer.

Steve Jobs exposure to electromagnetic fields from products in the day put him in the top one tenth of one percent of people most exposed to this microwave radiation.

Entirely separately – his being exposed at night, in his bedroom to the emissions from an electrical transformer are also highly unusual putting him AGAIN in the top one tenth of one percent of people most exposed to this 60Hz radiation.

Sleep, as the Japanese know, is critical for health.                                                       When we sleep our metabolism drops to 40% capacity – worst case scenario for an immune system assault.  Instead, all energy goes to “cleaning-up” the mental filing system and scavenging the body’s free radicals, principally by means of increased melatonin.

EMF-exposed people at night have disrupted REM sleep and EMR Reduces Melatonin in Animals and People

Steve Jobs may ALSO have had a few things on his night table.

                                                                                                                                                     Ass-backwards Epidemiology.

Here’s an idea.                                              Go down your street – the side with the distribution lines.

Find the houses where the bedroom window is within 75 feet of these lines. Find people who have lived there 15 years. Make a separate category that includes the above BUT who also have a nasty Transformer on the pole. 

If the people are not dead or in the hospital, ask them, ‘How are ya feelin’ today? 

It’s ass-backward epidemiology to be sure but you know what? It’d give you the full and accurate laundry list of cancers, mental and neurological disorders caused by electromagnetic fields.

So if you have cancer – or are planning on getting cancer – be advised.

It doesn’t matter if you are worth $ 8 billion dollars and a meticulous vegan Buddhist. It doesn’t matter if you get the surgery and expertise of the best of Western medicine or scour the planet for solutions.

In the presence of this volume of Toxic Energy,                                you don’t stand a snowball’s change in hell.

Lung Cancer Answer……………………………….. Betcha didn’t even know there was any Question

 

  

Update: March 16, 2015

A prominent scientist who has said ‘EMF is No Hazard’ for many years just did an about face! Coincidentally, it was his OWN research that changed his mind. Mice & Lung Cancer.

 Mouse SmokingMouse Lung Cancer

The Bill of Goods

Rodney Dangerfield, George Burns & the WHO

“I don’t get no respect, no respect at all!”                                               might be the refrain of Lung Cancer – our most popular cancer to die of – and yet not to research.  (e.g. Breast cancer with fewer deaths get 20x the research $s)  When a big study emerges on lung cancer, it’s rare.  Governments for 40 years, chose to ‘blame-the-victim’ and pump money into finger-wagging advertising campaigns as their lame answer to lung cancer.

           The fact is, 75% of Smokers Don’t get Lung Cancer.                             Some smokers live to be 105. Why’s that? Nobody has cared much really. The enemy is clear: Smokers. 

The WHO                                                                  (i.e. Not Daltrey & Townshend & Co.)

has trumpeted new research with Diesel Fumes as the Big Killer, within the Big Killer. 

The Diesel Exhaust in Miners Study: A Nested Case–Control Study of Lung Cancer and Diesel Exhaust  as it’s called, means Diesel Fumes becomes the clear, new second horse in this lung cancer race (albeit, a slow research race it is ).

Whaddabout Radon? Yes,they adjusted for RADON!   Just a few years ago we all ran out and got Radon detectors because they said .. ‘Lung cancer is coming!’, whether you smoke or not,                      whether you like it or not.

This Research Obliterates the whole Radon deal.

This little spot here is dedicated to bringing you the Next Big Wave in Lung Cancer to tidily obliterate this Diesel Fumes proclamation.

(OK, maybe not obliterate it entirely and not right here and now because we need research dollars to nail it. (Start an ad agency you say? Hmmm)

In Science (in America), money is all.                        Like in advertising …                                                    Truth Doesn’t Matter.                                                     What Matters is What Sells.

And I have ‘a bill of goods’ here. It’s important to know when you are being sold a bill of goods. You judge if they’re any good.

Definition of BILL OF GOODS _________________________________                 1: a consignment of merchandise 2 : something intentionally misrepresented : something passed off in a deception or fraud —used in the phrase sell a bill of goods   _____________________________________________________

 I hereby consign this research to you. Can’t sell it. As an “independent health researcher” of 20+ years, I’ve had no funding to finish it nor had an ad agency to promote it. So it’ s up to you. Blog it, regurgitate it, take a piece & tear it apart or prove it wrong or otherwise advance the word. Thanks.

First off, ‘EXHIBIT A’ many (most?) people ALREADY disagree that Diesel Fumes are the Lung Cancer Answer. In environments other than mines the connection is not anywhere near as evident. And again – “Overall, despite an abundance of epidemiologic and experimental data [over 6000 published studies], there remain questions as to whether traditional diesel exhaust exposure causes increased lung cancers in humans”.    To wit, Minus MINERS Means Minimal Match.

N.B. Miners are Exposed to Massive Electromagnetic Fields.                                  In fact, they’re exposed to electrical conduits, communications, lighting and they may have the highest exposure of EMF in any profession. Studies on RADON and DIESEL FUMES linked to Lung Cancer Do Not Consider the Electromagnetic Radiation exposure of these workers.

Part 2: The Wrath of Technologyooh scary!

What has Technology got to do with    MINERS and Lung Cancer?  Well, everything, as it turns out.

The World Health Organization recently conceded cellphones are a “possible” carcinogen. (Today, the FCC is reviewing safety standards for the first time since 1996 and  The Government Office of Accountability has been looking into the adequacy of the limits for a year. Non-US countries are light years ahead). 

Whaddaya gonna do? Give up your smartphone? And your microwave, and Wi-Fi? What about Smart Meters, Wind Farms and Electric Cars for that matter? And all for what, a few little cancerous tumors? Man-up.

Michael’s wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, is one of the top cellphone peddlers in America.  You don’t see Gordon Gekko whining. Though he did have cancer consistent with that from cellphone exposure.

Dr. Robert Kane of Motorola died of a brain tumor. Understandably, he got a bit cranky and went on to write, “Cellular Telephone; Russian Roulette”. But what the hell does he know?  Just because he held the most patents at Motorola and practically invented the cellphone.

‘Don’t be evil’ Google bought Motorola’s cellphones.  (that’s a whole other rant for another day, to include Mr. Brin’s PD)

The guy you want to ask is the fella hired by the cellphone industry to “make it all go away”, Dr. George Carlos.  A reasonable man with $ 25 million to blow on EMF research. He wrote a book on the subject too, “Cell Phones – Invisible Hazards of the Wireless Age”. Says here it’s about the coming brain tumor epidemic. What?

So, the World Health Organization tip-toes in with a tepid statement, “possible carcinogen”. It reminds me of the old (Dr.) George Carlin routine, “The Surgeon General announced today that saliva causes cancer. However, only if taken in small amounts over a long period of time.” Let’s get to the punch line.

Again, the big RADON-Lung Cancer studies were done on MINERS.     It always seemed to me ‘a stretch’ that it then applied to every single person in the world. And that one study in 1964 established Radon’s scariness. (Subsequent proofs just jumped-in, lock-step to tread the same ground. Oh, ‘cept this fella who says residential radon REDUCES lung cancer  i.e. “Extrapolation of underground miners lung cancer risks to human risks at domestic and workplace levels may not be valid”. Then, he has his credible supporters HERE.)

Note:  they never measured EMF ... electromagnetic radiation !

Not a word about it.   Ditto this damning new study of Diesel Fumes & Lung Cancer.

MINERS are Massively Exposed to myriad EMF frequencies.   The lighting and the communications systems (phone lines, two-way radio, RFID, Video, Wi-Fi, Wi-Max, MagneLink) pumps, fans, portable lighting units, even helmets all are sources in a cave structure perfectly-designed to contain and amplify radiation (more so in a coal-containing mine).

The ironically named Leeky Feeder…  Designed to ‘leek RF’ and act as an extended antennae!  ( I’m running out of emphases here)

Is any group in the world more exposed to EMF than MINERS?

I don’t believe there is.  So if you want to answer the question – ‘Is EMF radiation killing us?’  You start with MINERS ( or the Amish, on the zero exposure side).  And is this the elusive LUNG CANCER ANSWER (which we haven’t been looking too hard for)? I believe it is.

If so, it Changes Everything.

Trouble with this ‘new truth’ (see ‘Dots’ below) is the Government, Industry and Media have never had a conflict-of-interest of such magnitude in history. When EMF research or outrageous politico-corporate behaviour breaks again and again and again – a Watergate-style investigation never ensues.

One Lung Cancer Story should have stayed on the front page of ever newspaper and been the lead story on the 6:00 TV news until it was solved. Gives you an idea how far back we are going!   In 1994, Hydro-Québec with Ontario Hydro and Électricité de France (EDF) conduced the largest occupational study on exposure to electromagnetic fields.  The study focused on leukemia and brain tumors. Utilities fund these as they’re so rare, easy to spin. They still found a 2-3X increase in leukemia and brain tumors.

Out of the Québec portion, came a  Lung Cancer finding.       Lung cancer is our ‘#1’ cancer to die of so any increase, let alone 2-3X … would be huge. Researchers didn’t find increased risk of 2 or 3X.          They found up to 9.87X the lung cancer. Almost 1,000 %.  

It was linked with the Microwave frequencies (aka Wi-Fi, cellphones, cordless, ‘Leeky Feeder’). What resulted? They cancelled the contract with McGill University, fired Dr. Gilles Thériault and legally barred him from sharing his data with the research community. What the hell?

If trueand with 47 confounders there is no reason to think it’s not ah, ‘suggestive’there is no more important health finding.

Other Lung Cancer – EMF Observations;                          

Brazil  2011. Adilza C. Dode of the Municipal Health Department, Belo Horizonte City, Minas Gerais State, Brazil found an increased cancer in proxity to cellphone towers.  Lung cancer, counted the largest number or deaths and we await a distinct break-out.  Overall, 6,432 people within 500 meters of a base station died of cancer whereas  292 deaths occurred between a 500-1,000 meter distance and only 147 deaths over 1,000 m. On the face of it, disturbing. Certainly suggestive?

1996, Dr. Dennis Henshaw of Wills Physics Laboratory, University of Bristol, UK predicted an increase in lung cancer.

His research shows increased radon daughter nuclei attracted by power frequency electromagnetic fields. May ALSO explain the rap on radon coupled with an closed “EMF cave” where the Miner observation was made.

Professor Johansson at the Department of Neuroscience at the
Karolinska Institute in Stockholm found a curious thing. In Sweden, lung cancer among elderly men increased markedly beginning after 1997. For men aged 80–84 years, the incidence increased from 160 to 230/100,000. For men aged 85+, the incidence increased from 95 to a high of 180/100,000 in 2005.

In 1991, the Flight Attendant Medical Research Institute was established with a $ 300 million settlement of a class action lawsuit against Tobacco.

Flight attendants have been instrumental in advancing second hand smoke issues, as they were subjected to it prior to 25 years ago when smoking was banned on flights. NON-smoking flight attendants got excess lung cancer. ( Note: Since non-smoking flights, lung cancer has dropped dramatically.  And whereas planes are a major source of EMF, the absence of cigarettes means no smoke synergy. Breast cancer, brain tumours, melanoma, Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma are increased and all have been linked to EMF )

About the aforementioned Amish?

Some of them DO smoke, being ardent tobacco farmers.                                           And they DO get smoking-related cancers. 

They just get it at a rate of 37% of the non-Amish population.

The study said the data, “support reduction of cancer incidence by tobacco abstinence but cannot be explained solely on this basis”

Other factors? Perhaps because they have no electricity, or cellphones, Wi-fi, appliances, electronics… or technology-generating EMF radiation.

……………………………………………………………………….

PART 3: Connect the dots

Exactly what do we have here ?

Two huge well-designed Lung Cancer studies,                                                      1)  Miners & Diesel Fumes and                                                                                              2) Powerline WorkersElectromagnetic Field Radiation

Coincidentally… Miners are massively exposed to EMF.                                          This massive EMF exposure was never measured.

PART 4: More DOTS

Coincidentally AGAIN, a brand new study purports to have found the Key Mechanism of Action for Lung Cancer whereby reducing the protein Bax inhibitor 1 reduced  Calcium.                                                        (which causes a cascade of events)

Why is that coincidental? 

                                                                                                               CALCIUM is perhaps the main mechanism of action for EMF

The biological effects of EMF radiation is there in the scientific literature for any with a modicum of common sense and the persistence to pour through it.

I think these studies of Miners and Powerline Workers with the Calcium studies of mechanism provide a major research intersection. And Lung Cancer is a great intersection  because it has been left alone for so long yet contains the largest number of dead bodies. 

In Summary                                                                                                                     Miners +EMF + EMF + EMF + EMF + other stuff = Lung Cancer.

Today, reporters – some whose companies have lost EMF lawsuits – take (mis)direction from the Legal Department. Researchers, arguably, don’t want to bite the only hand left with cash in it, Industry. (Though, the vast preponderance of scientists have no training/understanding of EMF, far too many pretend they do.)

Esteemed investigative science writer, Paul Brodeur wrote The Zapping of America: Microwaves, Their Deadly Risk, and the Coverup 1977, Currents of Death – 1989 and The Great Power-Line Cover-Up: How the Utilities and Government Are Trying to Hide the Cancer Hazard Posed by Electromagnetic Fields1993. We can decipher this message. Many EMF Books followed, while others preceded his clarion calls.

Coupled with 100,000+ scientific papers on the biological effects of electromagnetic fields, that many media stories, the by-now hundreds of dedicated researchers and hundreds of thousands of EMF advocates, People can’t say “I didn’t know”. They CAN say, “I didn’t care”.

Until it hits home of course. This suggests… it already has.                                   We’ll save the full hazard scope and politics for other days                          but draw the one screamingly obvious analogy.

The Surgeon General¹s Report in January 1964 finally denounced the hazards of cigarette smoking.

The next August, Harvard’s     Dr. Clarence Cook Little (Scientific Director of the  Council for Tobacco Research) after evaluating 350 separate reports, declared there was “little to support” for the charge cigarette smoking causes lung cancer. The American Medical Association – representing the doctors of America – refused to join the fray had just received $ 10 million from the tobacco industry for research into the possible hazards of smoking. You’ve seen doctors of the day in ads virtually prescribing cigarettes for all manner of malady. No?

In 1945 the first studies linking smoking and lung cancer appeared – the increased risk was 2 X.  Today, we know smoking increases the risk of lung cancer by 10X up to 50 X based on the length of time smoked.

The TOBACCO industry is Big.                                                                        They had no problem delaying their comeuppance for 5o Years!          And they still remain ‘off the hook’ relatively speaking.

[ Disclosure: I have attempted to mitigate Tobacco’s legal exposure by offering to put this research initiative into action. No go. Their loss.]

The EMF “industry” is 1000x Tobacco in size. Yes, ADD up the Cellphone, Wireless, Utilities, Computer, Electronics industries but also EVERY industry in the World. Each one has a legal-financial exposure from EMF that exceeds their revenues.

We’re exposed to a quintillion X more man-made EMF radiation than we were just 50 years ago. That’s lots more.

What’s  the definition of Impossible?                                                                             A) Finding a NON-exposed EMF control group                                                                        B) Finding a Business with no EMF conflict-of-interest                                           C) Both (i.e. impossible to choose between A & B).    

 Government and Industry are  in sync on EMF.                                  We are all in the EMF business.                                                It’s funny.                                                                            Er, not funny at all really. It’s stupid.                                                        And I don’t mean in hip ‘sick’ sort of way but in the old, traditional sense where we are so stupid people die, in large numbers and unnecessarily.

I’m reaching you say?                                                                                                 Isn’t that what we are supposed to be doing? Besides, I’m only ‘reaching’ into the scientific literature.

If it was only Lung Cancer,                                                                                    it merits the urgent attention of research agencies the world over.      The list of maladies caused by this radiation is so long to even mention them would illicit guffaws (and to interrupt existing laughter may be dangerous to any readers already).

To do this right requires a lot of researchers and others and 1,000 pages if we limit our proof to Lung Cancer. I’m unqualified to deliver the necessary coup de grâce here. But I will build the vehicle.

One Other little Thing, the flip side

Interesting research here. Very Weak RF Signals Treat Inoperable Liver Cancer. So, RF (radio frequency EMF), non-ionizing is 10X more effective than the best standard practise when treating INOPERABLE liver cancer. That’s a Hmmm)

But it’s OK, this RF-EMF is ” 1,000x LOWER than that from a cellphone” say the researchers! Does that sound OK to you? Are you still awake? Anyone out there think that MINES – with their massive EMF – would make a great new venue for Health Tourism?

A biological effect is a biological effect.                                                          EMF is ALSO used to TREAT; Depression, Bipolar Schizophrenia, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, Cancers and they are just getting started.  Cause & Cure?  Certainly proof of health effects!

We have dozens of examples of ionizing radiation – for good and bad. Ever had a CT Scan? It’s about 400x the radiation of a chest x-ray.   It’s a 5 minutes exposure. Good bet you’d be dead real quick if you spent the day in there! 

EMF is about frequencies – Cause & Cure.                                                 To leave these glaring questions unanswered is criminal. Many believe the answers are here and our governments and industry are keeping them off the table. Were they ON the table, it would impact the morbidity and mortality of many tens of millions of people.

In time, when this all comes down, your family will ask, “Why didn’t you tell me?” “I didn’t know” is not an answer. It’s also a lie. I could on. For the 3 or 4 of you who have actually made it this far, I Congratulate You.

Start here and now with Lung Cancer and EMF exposure.               It looks to be the world’s ‘lowest hanging fruit’ in terms of saving lives.     ( not to mention for that so-far elusive Nobel Prize)

The Answer to the Health Question …                                                                      whatever your health question?

It’s EMF.

Epilepsy: Cause & Cure

My roommate had epilepsy.
His seizures jumped up when we moved in,

not 150 ‘ from power lines.

It got me thinking… I had seizures when I was a kid.
I went to my childhood home and measured the electromagnetic fields.
Big time. My seizures disappeared when I moved downstairs.
No EMF radiation downstairs.

We had an epileptic dog growing up.
He always laid down behind my father’s chair.
It happened to be a Laz-y-Boy recliner so was
always plugged in and giving off an electric field.

The chair was (unfortunately) positioned directly
above the furnace. The alternator on the furnace gave
off a huge surge of EMF pulse whenever it came on.

Hardly scientific certainty but everything starts with observation.
Besides,  for a great many other reasons – I was certain by then.

So I attended the Stanford Epilepsy Conference
put on by Stanford University. All the Big Brains were gathered.
They are self-proclaimed ‘best in the world’. You may even know them
if you follow the epilepsy literature.

I was the only lay person amongst the researchers.
The top guy gets up and he points to this big pie chart,
” Epilepsy is an electrical storm in the brain…” . He points to
a big grey area and he says, ” 75% of all epileptic seizures
are caused by some unknown environmental factor”.

       

     

         

I put up my hand, “It’s electromagnetic fields”.

He quickly, rudely and roundly chastised me for my ignorance
and pressed on with his presentation.

Next presenter was a woman, the organizer –
and by reputation – the world’s second biggest brain
on the subject of epilepsy.

Same, only different. When she got to the ‘big mystery’
part of her show I put up my hand, “It’s electromagnetic fields”.
With a tad more decorum she sympathized with my stupidity.

Third guy, a young guy hot off the ‘academic’ presses in Europe
(Italy to be exact). He represented the future of epilepsy research…
and the two Big Brains couldn’t praise him enough.

Well, twice burned…
I waited and button-holed him outside in the quadrangle.
I walked straight up to him and again said, “It’s electromagnetic fields!”
He leaned forward eyes alight and replied “That’s brilliant! You know they are using EMF to TREAT epilepsy in Spain”. “Yes I do”, I replied.

That was in 1996.
You can see how far we have come.

It’s 2011, Western medicine is using EMF to treat the things it causes –
epilepsy, depression, MS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, addiction
and now, very soon… autism.

Funny.

Funnier still, we shouldn’t need to crack open your skull and charge $50 – 120,000 for the privilege.

These are electromagetic fields, they go through the skull with ease.  If we had researchers and resources we’d develop a $500 hand-held consumer device that sits in your medicine cabinet. Pick your frequency… Dial-a-Disease.

In alternative medicine they’re treating cancer with pulsed electromagnetic fields and a certain Nobel Prize winner is securing a patent on EMF to treat HIV-AIDS. (not any Nobel winner but Luc Montagnier, discoverer of the HI virus)

Technology Killed Steve Jobs

Technology Killed Steve Jobs

That’s not Steve Jobs “killed technology” or spawned “killer technology” in the awesome, sick, hot, cool product sense.

Though iTunes and Steve Jobs killed the record & CD industry.                      Rather,  it was technology killed Steve Jobs in a quite literal sense.

Steve Jobs replied to my email years ago in Silicon Valley. I asked him why he’s not touting Apple’s great security. He replied he just didn’t want to draw publicity to it for fear hackers may focus on Apple products.  Always a step ahead.

The world could’ve used 25 more years of his pig-headed brilliance,       this ‘Future by Steve Jobs’.

I wish to draw attention to what killed him. Technology is the killer.                   Was it a remote death ray, nano-robots or mutant bacteria?                                      No, nothing like that. Well, almost nothing like that.

We’re killed by the things we love; addiction to cigarettes, alcohol, gambling, McDonald’s and the list. We pick our poisons and go to the well, habitually. One who loves violence may die by the sword.           Lovers die by the object of their affections.

If you want to learn what kills us, find out what we love.

Far from junk food, Steve Jobs was meticulous about what he ingested as a pescetarian (vegetarian + fish). He kept his own fresh food garden.           And as a Buddhist, he likely cultivated discipline while avoiding most         bad lifestyle choices. One may expect Steve to live a long, healthy life.     One ‘addiction’ Jobs would never shake was technology.

Steve Jobs loved technology. These warm and fuzzy technology things – the Mac, iPod, iPhone and iPad – are things he loved. They’re the things we all love. They’re why we loved Steve.

The iPhone (slash iPad) is the technology that absorbs our lives.
Researchers contend brain scans show it’s far more than mere brand recognition (New York Times, “You Love Your iPhone. Literally”).

The iPhone was a game-changer.
It was also a game-changer in terms of man-made radiation.
The iPhone emits more electromagnetic radiation than any other smartphone in the world. It’s always ‘talking’ to other iPhones.               You can ‘bump’ iPhones to exchange e-cards. It’s so cool!

And it’s so deadly. Like a bunch mini-transmitters, it’s radiation is “always-on” and all around. We’re swimming in electromagnetic fields which have increased a million-fold in the past 40 years. 

iPhone takes this radiation exposure to a whole new level.                                      Not so cool.

We’ve welcomed this ubiquitous hazard into our lives this past century. The scientific case is not herein with copious links to distract our radiation-addled brains. Ask your mother or grandmother. Mine once said about TV, ‘Stay back from that thing, it can’t be good for you’. Turns out, TVs once emitted X-rays!   Anyway, go look it up.       What am I, your mother?

Let me get off our fav devices (er, ‘loved ones’) and instead focus on Steve Jobs.

Steve Jobs reputedly had a hand in every design detail, his obsession with interface and usability means he was immersed in electromagnetic field radiation. Not like you or me or even the bench engineers at Apple.

In terms of humans on the planet and without benefit of environmental audit, it’s safe to say he was in the 99.9th percentile of exposure to this radiation. Steve Jobs was Guinea Pig Number One.

[ Actually, Dr. Robert Kane, Motorola’s top patent holder/cellphone tester – wrote the book, ‘Cellular Telephone Russian Roulette’ in 2001 and died of a brain tumor – was likely ‘Number One’ ]

Technology is addictive – not just in the better-known psychological sense of reinforced behavior and subsequent triggering of endorphins, dopamine and all these neurotransmitters involved in addiction.

Beyond this, the radiation itself is addictive. Electromagnetic radiation – independent of other factors– triggers endorphins, impacts dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine, epinephrine, GABA – the addiction keys.

This covert, man-made radiation we heartily embrace affects our mental health and then directly impacts our physical health. Cancer is one of the troubling by-products. Technology kills… in a warm & fuzzy way.

What of pancreatic cancer and Steve Jobs? He first got pancreatic cancer in 2004. Those chemo treatments doubtless resulted in the liver toxicity which necessitated a liver transplant. The liver’s ‘the General’ in this war as they say in Chinese medicine. Without the liver, no chance. Oncologists agree.

After pancreatic cancer in 2004, rather than quit and concentrate on getting healthy, Steve Jobs was just getting started. Then came the liver transplant in 2009. That’s the heroic part. We think it’s all great fun designing the future. Sometimes, one expects it’s hellish hard work.

Steve Jobs made technology accessible and indispensible and the object of all our affections. No longer stuck in the realm of ‘need’ Steve Jobs made technology a matter of ‘want’. Technology became happy and helpful and mostly… Simple.

Like the genius Nikola Tesla and his alternating current, Jobs brought wondrous technology into our lives. Electricity is the backbone of our technological advance. Ironically, with it’s own hazardous radiation,     electricity is the unindicted toxic co-conspirator lurking.

Technology… for good or evil. The good, we all know.
The evil? Well, that’s right now being discovered.

Steve Jobs killed technology and technology killed Steve Jobs.
It’s tantamount to being attacked by gummy bears (for some of us).

This thing we love turned against us. And who’d think to blame gummy bears anymore than people would blame their various and sundry iStuff.

Steve Jobs gave his life to give you this technology.
He didn’t know it.

And frankly, the collective “we” won’t know it for a while yet.

On technology and health, we need to think anew and act anew            and all that jazz.

Like Steve.

Tiger Woods, Wall Street and Virginia Tech explained

Moral Judgement Altered by Magnetic fields

Wall Street malfeasance, Tiger Wood’s “indiscretions” and even tragedies like Columbine and Virginia Tech may be viewed in a whole new way after recent research from MIT.

MIT researchers have found your moral center. Not surprisingly, it’s located in your brain. Turn’s out – it’s just above your right ear.

MIT Zaps Brain and Finds "Morals" pic

The report states, ” The researchers used a noninvasive technique known as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to selectively interfere with brain activity in the right temporo-parietal junction (TJP).     A magnetic field applied to a small area of the skull creates weak electric currents that impede nearby brain cells’ ability to fire normally …”.

The chances are better than 50/50 this is the same ear you zap with microwave radiation from your cellphone. If you are a trader on Wall Street, a time-challenged celebrity or an obsessive teenager, this exposure may be for hours a day, day in and day out.

Research scientists everywhere may want to rethink the definition of “noninvasive”.             Because with 4.6 billion cellphone users out there, seems many millions are disabling their morals.

The financial industry over the last 25 years has been “on cellphones.” To many, it seems as if our captains of industry have lost their moral compasses.  These were early adopters of the Motorola ‘brick phone’ and  have been living and sleeping with their cellphones ever since.

Tiger Woods texting enthusiasm is well publicized. You might guess he has Blackberrys and iPhones in every room. These most popular smart phones also have the highest radiation as measured by specific absorption rate. http://www.ewg.org/cellphone-radiation

Finally, if were able to get the cellphone records of the Columbine or Virginia Tech players, one imagines they’d easily be in the top 5% of users.   Throw in their computer and iPod use and exposure is pretty much 24/7. In fact, investigation of all dangerous pathological behavior should be researched anew now that we know technology can make our morals flexible.

Magnetic fields do other things too.

Besides knocking out moral sense, magnetic fields also affect impulse control, memory, learning, attention, “can trigger hallucinations, separate people from their sense of self and induce God-like feelings.”  And oh yeah, electromagnetic fields also trigger endorphins which is the addiction pathway.

So, after you finish your next cellphone marathon?  Take comfort – a brain tumor is the least of your worries.
