Enhanced version of comments on RF standards

The following is an enhanced version of my comments on RF standards, which should help to clarify in a non-technical way what is a very technical subject. feel free if you need help to e-mail me at


It is now fairly well established that the IEEE/WHO/ICNIR standards for SAR and other exposure "standards" so called based on "heating effect" do not tell the whole story on the effects of exposure of humans of all ages, both genders and the range of physical sizes to RF at HF and above and thus cannot be considered “safe” for electro-sensitive people.

This standard dates back to 1944 and was originally set so that the risk from RF (Microwave) exposure would not be greater than that on a live battlefield in the Pacific War. Hardly appropriate to a civil society at the start of the 21st Century.

It has been known and shown repeatedly that there are bio-electrical effects that start at very low levels. Between 1/1000 and 1/10000 of the current (Western) "standard'. Further it is the type of modulation or intelligence placed on to the RF that is significant; with pulsed signals being far worse then radio (AM or FM) and TV signals (that contain vestige sideband "sync pulses”) some where in the middle as far as effects are concerned.

Basicly the mechanism is believed to be, that cells and specifically the cells of certain organs such as the middle ear, acting as a demodulator or detector, resolving the envelope pattern of the RF signal. Where the demodulated signal has components at the various bio-active frequencies that are used for internal signals by the human body, they may be swamped by this "false" RF demodulated signal. These "false" signals interfere with the body's regulation at all levels from inside cells up to major sense organ inputs to the brain.  

As pulse signals contain all the harmonics of the pulse frequency, this raises the chance that one or more bio-active frequencies will be present within the signals. The current GSM signals have basic pulse repetition frequencies that are at or near known bio-active frequencies. Up to this point research has looked for a link between the RF field strength (SAR) and the effects. There are now well documented effects of weak magnetic fields at 8.3 and 217Hz on nerves.

The results are to be seen at the cell level as, calcium efflux, at the near level, as false sensation, tingling, vertigo, sweating, cold sweating, tremors, flushes and other well known symptoms of RF exposure. In the limit, caused by the effects of direct RF exposure of the brain, hearing noise, seeing flashes, headaches, dizziness to the point of falling over, can be the result.

All the effects appear to be worse as the frequency is raised. A serious side effect of exposure at frequencies above 150 Mhz, (that is VHF and above), is that body parts can become resonant absorbers, which raises the amount of energy taken in, and reduces the threshold exposure level at which effects are seen.

The range of variation of human "size" of hand, arm, leg etc within gender and age groups explains in part why some people are more affected than others.

All the above has been widely known for some 40 years, as these effects were first documented by Russian scientists from the late 1950s onward.

When it first became known in the "West" the US/NATO (yes the Yanks!), dismissed it as black propaganda. Since 1990 the IEEE have repeatedly attempted to "harmonize" the Russian standards by raising the "safe" levels in Russia upwards by 1000 times. The Chinese have now imposed the same lower maximum levels and mandated other changes to reduce the RAD-HAZ from cell phones and other RF sources and despite repeated Western protests the answer in Russia and China is still NO.

The driving force behind maintaining the high unsafe standard in the West (UK/EU/USA/Can/ Aus/NZ) is the financial implication for the (not so ex) cold war warriors.

If the lower standard were adopted the MILITARY would need to purchase many square miles of land around their high power radar and radio sites to remove the public from areas where the lower standard said was unsafe.

The MILITARY could also expect to pay out vast sums in successful death and injury claims to ex-military and civilian persons who have been affected by exposure to previously consider "safe" RF levels.

Eventually common sense, and the case against the current RF exposure standards will prevail, as it did in the case of tobacco.

In the mean time we are all subject to passive RF exposed while the "cell-idiots" deafen everyone with their conversations and spread the risk of pain or death to all around them.

Fear at School: Cellular Phone Exploded in School Bag

Maariv 17.12.2003

Powerful explosion stopped the lesson in T"LY  school in Jerusalem yesterday.

It was not a suicide bomber, but a technical problem in the cellular phone of one of the pupils.

The cell phone started releasing smoke and turned black. Luckily, the phone was in the bag, and no one was hurt. A special team from the company  Pelephone will examine the details of the event. The pupil, Yarden, 9 years old, didn't understand in the first moment what the source of the explosion was. "There was a big boom and a terrible smell" told Yerden yesterday to channel 1. The bag was on her body when the explosion happened, and her frightened friends jumped towards her in order to prevent the bag from catching fire.

"I don't want to think what would have happened, if the phone had exploded near my daughter's ear" said Yerden's mother, Dorit Gabai. The mother told that the phone had been bought a week and half ago. The school principle, Nava Tal, told that during the lesson a strong blow up had been heard. "It was very strange. The children were very alarmed. Also because we are used to grave events, and also because the children are more sensitive to explosion sounds. The bag was smoking, and her shirt was blackened". The police was brought also into the picture. "We thought about many possibilities. A policeman came right away and also an expert in dismantling bombs. They checked the bag and said that it was probably a problem with the device, of which the battery explodes" told the principle. The mother was called to school. She talked to her child, and when she saw the child was ok, she calmed down. The police guided the mother to file a complaint against Pelephone. The police found that there was a problem with the battery. The company said it is a rare case, and that they would check this case. The company contacted the family, the device provider and the relevant authorities. The company said that all the company devices must stand in the requires of the authorities, every device goes through series of examinations to ensure it stands in all the strictest standards.

Further details:

The child, Yarden Gabai, 9 years old: "I was holding the bag and suddenly I heard Boom",   "I don't think I want to have a cell phone now".

 * The cell phone was Samsong 441.

* The phone didn't function right and was sent to the company after it had been bought by an exchange trade. The battery mechanism was destroyed, and then the phone was fixed by the company. It didn't prevent this explosion.

*In October a cell phone exploded in a cashier's pocket, and burnt his knees. Several months earlier, in August, a cell phone exploded in the hands of a Dutch lady (33 years old) while speaking on the phone, and caused her skin burns.

* The experts: Prof Haim Yarnizki from the chemistry department in the Technion explains: The batteries from the older generation like Nickel metal hydride or Nickel- Cadmium, can explode from the device heating, as a result of a short circuit or over loading. The newer generation are Lithium batteries, which are sensitive to water, and if the come in contact with water they start to burn and even explode. Cellular phone requires a high amount of energy, and in case of a short circuit this concentrated energy which is supposed to be enough for 5 hours, is concentrated in 10 seconds, and it creates huge energy inside the battery. It is recommended to buy only original batteries from the cell phone provider and not risk in buying from third hand.

Still Ill After all these years

To All,

My question to this list is are there any Medical Doctors in this world who are helping those of us who are suffering from the horrible symptoms caused by the effects of radiation poisoning. Please if you know some one contact me at

Thank you

The EMR Policy Institute Carries Forward Challenge to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit On FCC Radiofrequency Radiation Safety Guidelines

The EMR Policy Institute, taking up where The EMR Network organization left off, is challenging the Federal Communication Commission's FCC's decision to shirk its responsibility in protecting the public from potentially hazardous exposure to radiofrequency (RF) radiation. "The EMR Policy Institute asserts that at this time when the technology is burgeoning beyond what anyone imagined when the RF safety standards were written, the FCC must address RF radiation exposure from antenna sites as a public health question, not merely a question of engineering feasibility," asserts President Janet Newton.

On October 3, 2003, an appeal was filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to challenge the FCC's Order 03-191.  This order, adopted on July 28, 2003, and released on August 14, 2003, affirmed the FCC’s dismissal of The EMR Network’s Petition for Inquiry In the Matter of the Environmental Effects of Radiofrequency (RF) Radiation filed on September 25, 2001.  The EMR Policy Institute is providing legal and research support for the appeal at the request of The EMR Network.

See:  for the documents leading up to this appeal.

Whitney North Seymour, Jr. will represent The EMR Policy Institute in this appeal. The firm of Miller and Van Eaton of Washington D.C. will assist under the direction of James R. Hobson.

The original Petition for Inquiry is based on the June 17,1999, letter of W. Gregory Lotz of the federal Radiofrequency Interagency Work Group (RFIAWG) addressed to Richard Tell, then Chairman of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) subcommittee responsible for RF radiation exposure standards.  The RFIAWG is composed of individuals from the federal agencies responsible for developing and implementing public policy for RF radiation, i.e., Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), FCC, Food and Drug Administration (FDA), National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and National Telecommunications Information Agency (NTIA).

   * Biological basis for local SAR (Specific Absorption Rate of RF radiation) limit.

   * Selection of an adverse effect level.

   * Acute and chronic exposures.

   * Controlled vs. uncontrolled exposure limit.

   * Uncertainty factors in the data used to develop the guidelines.

   * Intensity or frequency modulated (pulsed or frequency modulated) RF radiation.

   * Time averaging of exposures.

   * Limits for exposure at microwave frequencies.

   * Replication/validation of studies demonstrating adverse effects.

   * Important health effects literature areas.

   * Compatibility of IEEE RFR guidelines with other international RFR guidelines.

The FCC Order states:  (Emphasis added.) By this action, we deny the Application for Review  filed by the EMR Network (“EMR”), contesting the decision of the Chief, Office of Engineering and Technology (“OET”) to dismiss EMR’s Petition for Inquiry.  EMR had requested that we initiate a proceeding to gather information and opinion about the need to revise our regulations for radiofrequency (“RF”) radiation and use the information so obtained to revisit our current guidelines for evaluating human exposure to RF emissions from transmitters under the jurisdiction of the  Commission. We find that OET was correct in dismissing the petition, having determined that this Commission is not the most appropriate forum to initiate such an inquiry or proceeding concerning the environmental effects of RF radiation at this time. Par. 1. (Emphasis added.)

. . . EMR relies primarily on the Lotz letter to support its contention that there are areas of      insufficiently explored concern regarding the health effects of human exposure to RF  radiation. We agree that in this letter, knowledgeable individuals appropriately identified issues of potential interest in setting RF exposure guidelines. These ideas had been solicited by another working group of experts convened to consider just such matters, the IEEE Risk Assessment Working Group. It is telling, however, that the letter specifically noted that it did not reflect the views of the respective agencies by which the individual IWG members are employed. Par. 7. (Emphasis added.)

While EMR correctly notes, in a related argument, that it must petition the Commission for     changes in Commission’s rules, it fails to discriminate what constitutes an adequate basis for pressing such a case. Were EMR to demonstrate reliable pertinent information developed by an appropriate agency or other expert source, we would have a basis for opening a rulemaking or fact-finding proceeding. In the absence of a demonstrable show of concern, or even interest, by other expert agencies with the same (or  greater) knowledge of research in this field – and its implications - as we possess, we are not  inclined to generate such an inquiry on our own. Additionally, we do not have the prerogative to order other agencies to do so or to participate in an inquiry that this agency might initiate in spite of their better-informed inaction. Par. 11. (Emphasis  added.)

Whitney North Seymour, Jr. will argue this appeal. A graduate of Yale Law School, Mr. Seymour has had a distinguished career in public service and public interest legal work along with many years of community service as director/trustee of numerous non-profit community and civic groups. He was Independent Counsel for the Michael Deaver Investigation from 1986-89. He served as United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 1970-73. He served as New York State Senator from 1966-68. 

Mr. Seymour’s private practice of the law has included a partnership in a prominent New York law firm from 1950-1983. He served as President of the New York Bar Association from 1974-75 and President of the Federal Bar Council from 1980-82.

The October 30, 2003, filing of the Statement of Issues to be Raised in this Case No. 03-1336, the FCC August 14, 2003, Order 03-191, and all future related documents can be found at:
