The up-point seems to be, it does not happen in Europe (or any other part of the world except for America(USA)).

Quote:
“The Cell Phone Poisoning Of America”
“Electromagnetic pollution may be the most significant form of pollution human
activity has produced this century, all the more dangerous because it is invisible and
insensible.”
This powerful and striking statement was made by prominent physician Andrew Weil,
MD, best-selling author of eight books, a Harvard Medical School graduate, and
internationally recognized expert on medicinal herbs and integrative medicine. When you
read the rest of this report you’ll understand why his statement is both accurate and valid.
Facts About Cell Phone Use
• Talking on a cell phone as little as 500 minutes a month can increase the
probability of brain cancer by 140% to 300% (1)
• Cell phone radiation has been shown to damage and break living DNA (2)
• Cell phone radiation causes leakage of the blood-brain barrier allowing toxins to
damage sensitive brain tissue (3)
• Cell phones worn by men on a belt clip can reduce sperm count by 30% (4)(5)
• After using a cell phone for six years the risk of developing an acoustic neuroma
( tumor of the auditory nerve) increases by 50% (6)
• Cell phone radiation increases estrogen and adrenaline levels in the body
disrupting hormonal balance (7)
• A two-minute cell phone call alters a child’s brain function for an hour (8) (9)
• Cordless phones have even higher cancer risks than cell phones (10)

Reference to a topic of a single or some studies and turning it into an established fact is what this document does (Logical Health LLC).

Me publishing this was intended to have a good measure of sarcasm

It is more than 40 years ago that I operated a (2 meter) licensed ham-radio station, part of the needed paper work was to learn what was know about effects of the magnetic fields generated, the power trans mitted by this and the danger to life and health. Nothing as draconisch as in the referred paper.

Anyway, me saying that this only was of influence to America and the Americans was to signal non-seriousness

I really hope that people (are you reading this Dan ) do not take that paper too serious.

That's the problem here: Disbelieving everything that is not 'proven' to your satisfaction. Of course, it is important and frustrating to me that people do not accept what I have found as useful in audio design, but this extends to other areas obviously, by certain people who just ignore anything that is not 'nailed down' (and by then, old knowledge, rather than new knowledge).
I find it more useful to keep an open mind about new info, rather than reject it.

still waiting for the study showing all the problems of holding the cel phone up to one side of the head and the localized damage it causes.

oh, wait, there isn't one!

One of the "famous" studies of the deleterious effects of non-ionizing radiation was a Soviet publication that showed a weight loss in rats exposed to RF in the broadcast band. But no one could replicate the study. It turned out to be the watering tubes, they were made of metal in the Soviet study, and everyone else had been using plastic of some kind. When you used metal watering tubes, the RF levels used drew an arc between the rat and the tube, a sufficient negative stimulus to drink less water and hence subsequent weight loss.

no, I don't have the citation anymore.

Cheers
Alan

Hi John,

Within reason, sure. But blindingly accepting things that are presented would end us up in the dark ages again. It's important to gage a new idea against what is known for certain and has stood up to testing by your peers. Miracles aren't acceptable in this day and age.

I was sure that was your attitude Frans (and you made it clear).

Is this in reference to the recent topic of hidden powers of uranium ore, or the selective miss-use of research papers to support an agenda?

I can only hope you‘re not referring to dowsing as ‚new info‘. If not, I clearly apologize.

What do you mean "again"? Do we live in enlightened times? Misinformation is as useful as it's always been
