Cell Phone Radiation Boosts Cancer Rates in Animals

U.S. Government Expected To Advise Public of Tumor Risk

Cell Phone Radiation Confirmed 5-25-16


The cell phone cancer controversy will never be the same again.

The U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) is expected to issue a public announcement that cell phone radiation presents a cancer risk for humans. The move comes soon after its recently completed study showed statistically significant increases in cancer among rats that had been exposed to GSM or CDMA signals for two-years.

Discussions are currently underway among federal agencies on how to inform the public about the new findings. NTP senior managers believe that these results should be released as soon as possible because just about everyone is exposed to wireless radiation all the time and therefore everyone is potentially at risk.

These heat maps reveal where we feel love, anger, shame & sadness on our bodies

Posted on 08 January 2014 by admin

A team of Finnish researchers have created heat maps to show how emotions effect our biochemistry by heat output throughout the body. At different stages of everyday life you may be more susceptible to EMF sources than others. We know that while sleeping the body needs to be protected from EMF’s to help repair the daily damages in the body. Now there is information to use showing that during different emotions the impact of EMF’s may have varying levels of opportunity to do more or less damage while happy or sad. This can be applied to understanding how individuals are able to combat or be negatively affected at this times of stress or joy.

Scientists have conclusively proven that love gives you the warm fuzzies and sadness makes you feel blue.

A team of Finnish researchers have created heat maps of where and how emotions are experienced on the human body. The goal of the study was to find out if there is a consistent connection, across various demographic groups and geographical regions, between what we feel and the physical sensation of that feeling.

“Even though we are often consciously aware of our current emotional state, such as anger or happiness, the mechanisms giving rise to these subjective sensations have remained unresolved. Here we used a topographical self-report tool to reveal that different emotional states are associated with topographically distinct and culturally universal bodily sensations; these sensations could underlie our conscious emotional experiences,” the findings said.

The study asked 773 participants to color bodily regions where they felt activity increasing or decreasing while viewing stimulus, such as emotional words, stories, movies, or facial expression. They were prompted with six “basic” emotions and seven “complex” emotions, as well as a neutral state.

Does Magnetic Therapy Work?

Posted on 01 November 2013 by admin

Magnetic-Therapy

Magnetic therapy is an alternative medical practice that uses static magnets — usually in the form of bracelets, rings, wraps and shoe inserts — to alleviate pain and other health concerns. The medical community largely considers these magnetic products to be based on pseudoscience and devoid of any therapeutic value beyond the placebo effect.

Indeed, many well-conducted studies over the past three decades have shown that static magnetic devices offer no more or no less benefit than sham devices devoid of a magnet, in essence demonstrating the placebo effect magnets have on their users.

Nevertheless, magnetic therapy remains extremely popular, with sales of therapeutic magnets greater than $300 million in the United States alone, according to various estimates.

How it’s supposed to work
As with many forms of alternative medicine, magnetic therapy is based on reasonably sounding yet unscientific principles.

Magnetic therapy dates back millennia, as traditional healers attributed healing properties to the mysterious phenomenon of magnetic lodestones. Many such healers believed, in earnest, that the stones could draw disease from the body. Today, the most common, purported mechanism of action is that the magnet improves blood flow of the underlying tissue.

This sounds plausible because blood contains iron, and magnets attract iron. But iron in blood is bound to hemoglobin and actually is no longer ferromagnetic (that permanent kind of magnetism that keeps magnets on a refrigerator, for example). Instead, blood is diamagnetic when carrying oxygen and paramagnetic when not carrying oxygen. In either case, the attraction is weak and not permanent.

This is a good thing. If blood was ferromagnetic, you would essentially blow up when undergoing an MRI scan, in which the magnets used are thousands of times more powerful than those incorporated into magnetic bracelets and the like.

Regardless, the magnets used for this kind of therapy have magnetic fields that are generally too weak to penetrate your skin. You can test this by observing the weak interaction between a magnetic shoe insert and a paperclip when separated by a sock. Human skin is about 3 millimeters deep, thicker than some socks.

A second mechanism of action claimed by some proponents of magnetic therapy is that the magnets somehow alter the body’s electromagnetic energy balance. The problem here is that there’s no recognized concept among most physicists and medical doctors called electromagnetic energy balance — or life-flow, or energy flow, or chi.

Life flow or no, safety studies for powerful MRI scans reveal no discernable effect by magnets on the body.

What the studies say
Implausible physics aside, scientific studies on human subjects have failed to show the efficacy of using magnets to treat pain or joint and muscle stiffness. One of the largest studies was published in 2007 in the Canadian Medical Association Journal — a systematic review of numerous previous studies on static magnets.

While some smaller studies in this review reported therapeutic value, larger studies did not. The researchers concluded: “The evidence does not support the use of static magnets for pain relief, and therefore magnets cannot be recommended as an effective treatment.”

One positive result often cited by magnetic therapy advocates is a 1997 study from Baylor College of Medicine, titled “Response of pain to static magnetic fields in postpolio patients: a double-blind pilot study.”

This study, led by Carlos Vallbona, reported “significant and prompt relief of pain in postpolio subjects” through the use of a 300-500 gauss magnet (about 10 times stronger than a refrigerator magnet) for 45 minutes on the affected area of 50 patients in pain.

This was a respected, albeit small, study by a respected research group. Rarely noted, however, is the fact that this was only a pilot study. Vallbona never duplicated the results in a larger study and, in fact, never published again on the topic.

Magnets that do work
Magnetic therapy should not be confused with pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMFT), which is used for bone healing and, more recently, for depression.

In PEMFT, instead of a relatively weak static magnet, doctors use a special machine to apply pulses of intense electromagnetic energy to the affected area to initiate healing. For bone fractures, the pulses induce electrical signals at a subcellular level that stimulate chemicals in the cells to repair damaged tissue.

This therapy dates back to the early 1900s and Nikola Tesla, one of the pioneers in the use of electricity. In the United States, the technique was first used on animals, such as racehorses with broken bones, before being deemed safe for humans in the 1970s.

With numerous supportive studies published, the medical establishment now widely accepts PEMFT for certain types of bone fracture repair. PEMFT for pain management, wound healing and depression appears promising, according to medical studies, but this use of PEMFT is generally less accepted by medical practitioners.

Do Mammograms really work? The Science!

Posted on 27 April 2013 by admin

Breast-Cancer-Mammogram-StudyA recent three-decade long study from the New England Journal of Medicine points to the possible over-diagnosis of breast cancer, and yes, the idea that the sacred mammogram may be barely making a dent in the fight against the disease.

Peggy Orenstein, A New York Times Best Selling Author and breast cancer survivor, turned her analytic eye on pink-ribbon mania, the possible over-diagnosis of breast cancer, and yes, and the idea that the sacred mammogram may be barely making a dent in the fight against the disease.

When bringing up the subject she asks, how many lives, exactly, are being ‘saved,’ under what circumstances and at what cost?”

Mammograms and other radiation related intrusive treatments and detective procedures (cat scans, M.R.I.’s, etc…) doctors use are known to cause even more damage the original problems detected, even causing a second or third cause for cancer growth. Why Suggest to use this technique so frequently. It appears fear wins in the argument that you cannot be to careful.
Mammograms may not make much difference. Yes, there has been about a 25 percent drop in breast-cancer death rates since 1990. But some researchers point to treatment—not mammograms—as being mainly responsible for the decline. Evidence comes from a study of three pairs of European countries: In each pair, mammograms were introduced in one country 10 to 15 years earlier than in the other. Yet mortality rates are virtually identical, indicating mammography hadn’t made a difference. Further, mammograms, are not so great at detecting the most lethal forms of disease—a “triple negative,” for example—at a treatable phase. Aggressive tumors also tend to progress too quickly, cropping up between screenings.

Unnecessary treatments can be harmful. “According to a survey of randomized clinical trials involving 600,000 women around the world, for every 2,000 women screened annually over 10 years, 1 life is prolonged but 10 healthy women are given diagnoses of breast cancer and unnecessarily treated, often with therapies that themselves have life-threatening side effects,” Orenstein reports. Those treatments include Tamoxifen, which carries risks of stroke, blood clots and uterine cancer, while radiation and chemotherapy weaken the heart.

Newer diagnosis is on the rise. Many women today are told they have ductal carcinoma in situ (D.C.I.S.), or “Stage Zero” cancer, in which abnormal cells are found in the lining of the breast’s milk ducts. The diagnosis of D.C.I.S., in fact, now accounts for about a quarter of new breast-cancer cases, totaling some 60,000 a year. These are oftentimes the women we see celebrated at pink-ribbon events as “triumphs of early detection.” But D.C.I.S. does not spread; “in situ” means “in place.” The only danger is if it develops into an invasive cancer, and right now, there’s no way to know that, which is one of the major things in this fight that needs to change, say researchers. In the mean time, says Laura Esserman, director of the Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center at the University of California, San Francisco: “D.C.I.S. is not cancer. It’s a risk factor. …We don’t do heart surgery when someone comes in with high cholesterol. What are we doing to these people?”

The new study also found that, while mammography does reduce, by a slight margin, the number of women who develop late-stage cancer, it is is far more likely to result in over diagnosis and unnecessary treatment, including the use of potentially toxic drugs.

Preemptive mastectomies are on the rise, and not because of medical advice. According to Todd Tuttle, chief of the division of surgical oncology at the University of Minnesota and lead author of a study on the topic, there was a 188 percent jump between 1998 and 2005 among women given new diagnoses of D.C.I.S. in one breast who opted to have both breasts removed just in case. “You could attribute the rise in mastectomies to a better understanding of genetics or better reconstruction techniques,” Tuttle said, “but those are available in Europe, and you don’t see that mastectomy craze there. There is so much ‘awareness’ about breast cancer in the U.S. I’ve called it breast-cancer overawareness. It’s everywhere. There are pink garbage trucks. Women are petrified.”

The conclusion of the study

Despite substantial increases in the number of cases of early-stage breast cancer detected, screening mammography has only marginally reduced the rate at which women present with advanced cancer. Although it is not certain which women have been affected, the imbalance suggests that there is substantial overdiagnosis, accounting for nearly a third of all newly diagnosed breast cancers, and that screening is having, at best, only a small effect on the rate of death from breast cancer.
