Eight Repeatedly Documented Findings Each Show that EMF Safety Guidelines Do Not Predict Biological Effects and Are, Therefore Fraudulent: The Consequences for Both Microwave Frequency Exposures and Also 5G (3rd Edition)

“ICNIRP, US FCC, EU and other EMF safety guidelines are all based on the assumption that

average EMF intensities and average SAR can be used to predict biological effects and therefore safety. Eight different types of quantitative or qualitative data are analyzed here to determine whether these safety guidelines predict biological effects. In each case the safety guidelines fail and in most of these, fail massively. Effects occur at approximately 100,000 times below allowable levels and the basic structure of the safety guidelines is shown to be deeply flawed. The safety guidelines ignore demonstrated biological heterogeneity and established biological mechanisms. Even the physics underlying the safety guidelines is shown to be flawed. Pulsed EMFs are in most cases much more biologically active than are non-pulsed EMFs of the same average intensity, but pulsations are ignored in the safety guidelines despite the fact that almost all of our current exposures are highly pulsed. There are exposure windows such that maximum effects are produced in certain intensity windows and also in certain frequency windows but the consequent very complex dose-response curves are ignored by the safety guidelines. Several additional flaws in the safety guidelines are shown through studies of both individual and paired nanosecond pulses. The properties of 5G predict that guidelines will be even more flawed in predicting 5G effects than the already stunning flaws that the safety guidelines have in predicting our other EMF exposures. The consequences of these findings is that “safety guidelines” should always be expressed in quotation marks; they do not predict biological effects and therefore do not predict safety. Because of that we have a multi-trillion dollar set of companies, the telecommunication industry, where all assurances of safety are fraudulent because they are based on these “safety guidelines.”

For convenience, the eight non-thermal harmful EMF effects research he documents:

1) Lowered fertility, including tissue remodeling changes in the testis, lowered sperm count and lowered motility and other measures of lowered sperm quality, lowered female fertility including ovarian remodeling, oocyte (follicle) loss, lowered estrogen, progesterone and testosterone levels (that is sex hormone levels), increased spontaneous abortion incidence, lowered libido (30 reviews).

2) Neurological/neuropsychiatric effects including EEG and transmitter function; widespread neurological dysfunction, including: sleep disturbance/insomnia; fatigue/tiredness; headache; depression/depressive symptoms; lack of concentration/attention/cognitive dysfunction; dizziness/vertigo; memory changes; restlessness/tension/anxiety/stress/agitation; irritability; tinnitus (41 reviews).

3) Effects on cellular DNA including single strand and double strand breaks in cellular DNA and on oxidized bases in cellular DNA; also evidence for chromosomal mutations produced by double strand DNA breaks. These produce all of the important type of mutations, as described at the DNA level that have roles in cancer causation and in human whole organism mutation (27 reviews).

4) Apoptosis/cell death (an important process in production of neurodegenerative diseases that is also important in producing infertility responses) (18 reviews).

5) Oxidative stress/free radical damage (important mechanisms involved in almost all chronic diseases; direct cause of cellular DNA damage). There is published evidence that oxidative stress is responsible for cumulative changes in tissue structure, producing in turn, much of the cumulative effects of EMF exposure. (29 reviews).

6) Endocrine, that is hormonal effects; Includes changes in non-steroid and also steroid hormones (15 reviews).

7) Increased intracellular calcium levels, thought to be the cause in all other effects (16 different reviews).

8) Cancer including initiation, promotion and progression, further including tumor progression, tissue invasion and metastasis) (44 reviews). I am going to attach a copy of my paper, #37 below which shows how the primary effect of EMF exposures, activation of voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) can act to elevate 15 different mechanisms known to have roles in carcinogenesis, the process of cancer causation. That paper shows that 15 mechanisms produced following EMF exposure, each have roles in causing cancer.
