Re: The truth about EMF radiation

The auditory effect could be because of change in stiffness on the middle-ear apparatus, caused by lowering of threshold of excitation of muscles. Microwaves are indeed expected to depolarise nerves and muscle cells, which would produce such a threshold change.

The "tired face" may reflect a neurological effect caused the same way as the pathological loss of function reported by Hocking and Westerman (see

Either exhaustion of neurotransmitter or chronic constriction of blood vessels might result in "tiredness" of the face.

I think the writer reasonably has concluded that microwaves are the most likely cause of the problems.


Hi Klaus.

Very interesting link you posted from Harlan Girard:

I quote:

Once the passive-radar cat is out of the bag, there's even a chance it could evolve into a means of tracking people on the street. "But there'd be a lot of technical challenges," because the human body is a poor reflector of radio signals, says Shawn M. Herman, a researcher at Numerica ..." -- Otis Port

Right. In other words, the human body is a very good receiving antenna at some, perhaps many, frequencies. This is exactly why there are complaints of electronic harassment and electrosmog: If we were more reflective, there would be few complaints.

A word to the wise for cell-phone researchers . . ..

Implant the truth and they will come

And there we are. People against government and the companies. Companies (and governmental authorities) trying to create "needs" very few so far asking for. Government desperate looking for new paths of expanding the GNP, and frighten further backlashes from "information technology". So, for the moment we can notice a clash between government and the people, all over the country: protests, demonstrations a lot of angry writings in media.

This is a positive challenge: so far IBM, Microsoft, Ericsson and other mobile phone actors are rejected by the peoples masse. The situation in Denmark is better - because they don’t have a single monopolist like Ericsson, and because of that the politicians there not are some depended upon such an industry.

England  Hereford-Worcs  Mobile phone mast vandalised 76.stm

Vandals have pulled down a mobile phone mast in Worcestershire - the second in the Midlands in recent months.

The mast's owners, mobile phone company 02, say the vandals have caused thousands of pounds of damage and mobile users have suffered a reduction in the service as a result.

They believe the attackers broke through an unsecured fence before pushing over the structure.

The 45ft high tower at Hampton near Evesham was toppled over after supporting bolts were unscrewed.

Reviewing security

The company is installing a temporary tower to get mobile phone service in the area back to its normal level and will be reviewing the level of security at the site.

Last month a controversial mobile phone mast in the West Midlands, which was blamed by locals for a cluster of health scares, was pulled down. The mast at Wishaw, near Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, fell down on Bonfire Night, again after bolts were removed from the base.

Residents have now bought the mast from a scrap yard and plan to sell parts of it off as souvenirs.

DownUnder. An appropriate use of force option?

Klaus FYI. This post from Queensland, Australia. A sign of things to come in Europe? Regards and thanks for your excellent work.


Specialist Emergency Response Team (SERT) officers moved in, using the new taser "stun guns" to remove a woman protester from a mobile phone tower. An appropriate use of force option?

Stun guns used to remove protester


POLICE used taser "stun guns" in public for the first time today to remove a woman protester from a telephone company substation on the Gold Coast.

Julieanne Rodgers, 54, a long-time opponent of mobile phone towers, climbed onto the roof of a Telstra building at the corner of Christine and Bermuda Avenues at Robina around 4.30am local time(5.30am AEDT), unfurling a banner with a peace sign on it. But she was not discovered until around 8am when police were called. Ms Rodgers had pitched a tent on top of the substation and told police she planned to stay there for at least a week.

But after only 10 hours, Specialist Emergency Response Team (SERT) officers moved in, using the new taser guns, which have been undergoing operational trials for the past six months by the Queensland Police Service. The guns are used at close range, with an electrical pulse freezing muscles and immobilising the target for a few seconds.

Police Commissioner Bob Atkinson today defended the use of the weapon. "There needs to be another step between the use of capsicum spray and the use of a firearm by SERT officers," Mr Atkinson told Network Ten news. "The taser is being trialled because it is believed that it may well be an appropriate use of force option," he said.

But Queensland Council for Civil Liberties (QCCL) spokesman Terry O'Gorman said police need not have used the guns. "It's just not on to use a stun gun which uses a five-second 50,000 volt charge to enter a person's body on a demonstrator," Mr O'Gorman said.

Ms Rodgers told Ten News before her removal from the Telstra building she believed the radiation from mobile phone towers was giving people cancer.

Police have alleged she was armed with a live cattle prod and had used it on a police officer.

They also allege she was armed with a spray bottle containing an unknown substance.

Ms Rodgers will appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on December 10 charged with serious assault of a police officer, possession of a restricted weapon, disobeying a direction given by a police officer and climbing a structure.


Re food irradiation DownUnder

Also from Queensland, Australia.

Our protests have fallen on deaf ears. A food irradiation plant is to be built smack bang in the middle of our most famous tourist city Cairns, in order to (initially) export fruit to NZ. So the story goes. In truth it's likely that all types of foods will eventually be irradiated including our own supplies. NZ the raison d'etre.



Hum Group

Dear Hum Sufferer,

The Hum is still with us and causing misery to thousands of people, it covers at least two continents and as yet there is no hope of relief.

I have recently started a Hum Sufferers web group to allow exchanges between fellow sufferers and I am sending this email to all those who have contacted me in the past.

Everyone is welcome to have their say but it is also important to show the numbers affected and that this is a world wide problem, it is not necessary to join in the discussions, just becoming a member will help, numbers are important.

Go to the msn group web address, click on the "join now" tab, make up a password and a nickname.

Best Wishes
