Recently I published several posts in my blog ‘BRHP - Between a Rock and a Hard Place’ about ICNIRP and BEMS.

  • Somewhat “happy” ending to the election scandal at BEMS
  • What next, after the election scandal at BEMS
  • Election scandal at BEMS – election by-laws were violated
  • Election scandal at the Bioelectromagnetics Society
  • Is ICNIRP reliable enough to dictate meaning of science to the governmental risk regulators?

How much electromagnetic radiation am I exposed to?

How much electromagnetic radiation am I exposed to?

Science Daily, May 4, 2016

Summary: A team of researchers has developed a pocket instrument capable of perceiving radio signals from 50 MHz to 6 MHz and storing this information in a non-volatile memory. After collecting and storing the information, the system assesses the daily exposure of a person to electromagnetic radiation.

A team of researchers from Center for Biomedical Technology (CTB) at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) has developed a pocket instrument capable of perceiving radio signals from 50 MHz to 6 MHz and storing this information in a non-volatile memory. After collecting and storing the information, the system assesses the daily exposure of a person to electromagnetic radiation.

Society demands continuous implementation of new transmission systems due to ongoing development of communication technologies. These systems work by emitting electromagnetic waves. As a result, population is exposed to a significant increase of environmental radiation levels.

The increasing number of transmitters along with the unawareness of the characteristics and the exact location of the radio transmitters are an extra impediment that makes hard a real knowledge of the variations in electromagnetic field levels in urban environments.

The concern about the possible effects of the electromagnetic fields on human beings is a fact. The need of the authorities to control radio emissions has meant the development of specific regulation on exposure to electromagnetic fields.

In spite of the regulations, there exists a perception of risk among citizens due to the unawareness about the amount of radiation received. To carry out a real and non-theoretical measure is required to assess the radiation of each person at any place either inside buildings or outdoors. Only in this way could we really know the radiation levels of each person in his environment. Thus, a personal and portable device as the one developed by the Bioelectromagnetism Laboratory from CTB at UPM is essential to assess the mentioned levels of radiation.

This new device is a pocket system, comfortable and capable of perceiving radio signals between a frequency band from 50 MHz to 6 GHz. The operating frequency range is divided into channels of bandwidth of 10 MHz each. In this way, the field strength received of each channel is measured, and such information is stored in a non-volatile memory. The electromagnetic radiation levels received by a person who wears the device are stored to later assess his exposure for extended periods of time.

The maximum radiosensitivity designed for this device would be 110dB, thus the device could indirectly support radiated powers up to 300W at a distance of one meter from the source without damaging the electronic system.

The digital system also includes visual and auditory indicators that are used to report radio signals. These alert signals are programmable, interesting for those users who wish to control that their exposure to levels of radiation in their environment obey the specific limitations.

All the characteristics mentioned before turn this device into an instrument of electromagnetic fields measurements for any person who wish to control the radiation levels. The device has been protected through patent

Modulation of Ca(2+)-Dependent Proteiolysis under the Action of Weak Low-Frequency Magnetic Fields [Article in Russian]

Modulation of Ca(2+)-Dependent Proteiolysis under the Action of Weak Low-Frequency Magnetic Fields [Article in Russian]

Kantserova NP, Lysenko LA, Ushakova NV, Krylov VV, Nemova NN. Modulation of Ca(2+)-Dependent Proteiolysis under the Action of Weak Low-Frequency Magnetic Fields.Bioorg Khim. 2015 Nov-Dec;41(6):725-30.


The study aimed to determine the molecular targets of magnetic fields in living objects. Time-dependent effects of weak low-frequency magnetic field tuned to the parametric resonance for calcium ions were studied on model organisms (fish, whelk). The dynamics of Ca(2+)-dependent proteinase activity under the exposure to magnetic fields with given parameters was determined and minimal time of exposure in order to achieve inactivation of these proteinases was find out as well. As hyperactivation of Ca(2+)-dependent proteinases is a basis of degenerative pathology development the therapeutic potential of weak low-frequency magnetic fields enabling to modulate Ca(2+)-dependent proteinase activity is supported.

Mobile Phone Use and the Risk of Parotid Gland Tumors: A Retrospective Case-Control Study

Mobile Phone Use and the Risk of Parotid Gland Tumors: A Retrospective Case-Control Study

Al-Qahtani K.Mobile Phone Use and the Risk of Parotid Gland Tumors: A Retrospective Case-Control Study. Gulf J Oncolog. 2016 Jan;1(20):71-8.


BACKGROUND: Mobile phones are integral part of the modern lifestyle. As they emit radio frequency electromagnetic field, their role in carcinogenesis needs to be ascertained. The goal of this study was to investigate the association between the use of cellular phones and the risk for parotid gland tumors.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 26 patients diagnosed with parotid gland tumors and 61 healthy controls were enrolled through a hospital-based retrospective case-control study. The patients were referred and admitted to a tertiary hospital from January 1996 to March 2013.

RESULTS: The odds of exposure were 3.47 times higher among patients compared to their controls. 95% CI suggested that the true Odds Ratio (OR) at the population level could be somewhere between 1.3 and 9.23 and so the observed OR was statistically significant at 5% level of significance.

CONCLUSIONS: Overall, an association between the exposure of cellular phone use for more than 1 hour daily and parotid tumor was observed. This association should be interpreted with caution because of the relatively small sample size.

Analysis of the Genotoxic Effects of Mobile Phone Radiation using Buccal Micronucleus Assay: A Comparative Evaluation

Analysis of the Genotoxic Effects of Mobile Phone Radiation using Buccal Micronucleus Assay: A Comparative Evaluation

Banerjee S, Singh NN, Sreedhar G, Mukherjee S.Analysis of the Genotoxic Effects of Mobile Phone Radiation using Buccal Micronucleus Assay: A Comparative Evaluation. J Clin Diagn Res. 2016 Mar;10(3):ZC82-5. doi: 10.7860/JCDR/2016/17592.7505. Epub 2016 Mar 1.


INTRODUCTION: Micronucleus (MN) is considered to be a reliable marker for genotoxic damage and it determines the presence and the extent of the chromosomal damage. The MN is formed due to DNA damage or chromosomal disarrangements. The MN has a close association with cancer incidences. In the new era, mobile phones are constantly gaining popularity specifically in the young generation, but this device uses radiofrequency radiation that may have a possible carcinogenic effect. The available reports related to the carcinogenic effect of mobile radiation on oral mucosa are contradictory.

AIM: To explore the effects of mobile phone radiation on the MN frequency in oral mucosal cells.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: The subjects were divided into two major groups: low mobile phone users and high mobile phone users. Subjects who used their mobile phone since less than five years and less than three hours a week comprised of the first group and those who used their mobile since more than five years and more than 10 hours a week comprised of the second group. Net surfing and text messaging was not considered in this study. Exfoliated buccal mucosal cells were collected from both the groups and the cells were stained with DNA-specific stain acridine orange. Thousand exfoliated buccal mucosal cells were screened and the cells which were positive for micronuclei were counted. The micronucleus frequency was represented as mean±SD, and unpaired Student t-test was used for intergroup comparisons.

RESULTS: The number of micronucleated cells/ 1000 exfoliated buccal mucosal cells was found to be significantly increased in high mobile phone users group than the low mobile phone users group. The use of mobile phone with the associated complaint of warmth around the ear showed a maximum increase in the number of micronucleated cells /1000 exfoliated buccal mucosal cells.

CONCLUSION: Mobile phone radiation even in the permissible range when used for longer duration causes significant genotoxicity. The genotoxicity can be avoided to some extent by the regular use of headphones.

Urgent help for Mr Mendoza

Urgent help for Mr Mendoza

Dear Professional EMR fighters,                                         (and for clarity if you have already received notice of this case)
The case below calls for your urgent assistance.  It has already received a great deal of interest and support but your help is
needed.  Please send a letter of support for Jesus Mendoza a.s.a.p. needed for his court date next week 11th May 2016.
John Weigal 
If Dr. Milham testified on behalf of Mr. Mendoza, that is good enough for me to write a letter of support.
David Morrison
I found this online regarding his case if this is him
Originally sent from Susan Foster

Dear Friends & Colleagues,
Many of you know Jesús Mendoza, the extremely EMS pro se litigant who for many years has been fighting in the courts for his life and also his children's lives.  Mr. Mendoza had essentially finished law school long ago, but became ill after being targeted with EMR in retaliation for his faithful exposure of some corruption he had witnessed.  His current litigation to protect his children is being widely watched, and if successful will strongly aide others who suffer from electromagnetic injuries and sensitivity.  It will particularly stand in the way of harm for schoolchildren exposed to wifi.
This litigation can make a huge difference to many.  Mr. Mendoza has specifically named many of you as requested recipients of this message. Please note he cannot use a computer at all.  He requests that you kindly arrange to have posted on various websites one of his court documents, attached, and with this, a request for hard-copy letters, as below.  Such letters should be sent as soon as possible to:
Mr. Jesús Mendoza, 2202 East 28th Street, Mission, TX 78574.
Mr. Mendoza has been ordered by a court to appear in person next Wednesday, May 11, or go to jail.  Either outcome would produce intense, torturesome suffering and, before long, death.  Despite Mr. Mendoza's ADA requests and his many precedents of being allowed in many contexts, including the judiciary, to appear telephonically rather than in person, the court has now ordered his physical appearance.
For this reason, Mr. Mendoza requests that people write letters on his behalf, which he will send to the judge.  (Note he specifically requests the language "life-threatening or worse" near the end.)  Such letters can be very simple, such as follows:
To whom it may concern:
[First introduce yourself, preferably with credentials and/or professional experience that will provide the court an understanding of reasons your statement ought to be considered.]
Please allow Mr. Jesús Mendoza, who has been injured by electromagnetic radiation and suffers from sensitivity to it [if you wish here you may use your own term, or several terms, as you choose, for ES/EMS/EHS/MS, etc.], to appear by telephonic conference at his May 11, 2016 hearin.
Please support Mr.Mendoza's efforts to prevent his children who suffer as he does from being forced into hazardous situations that harm their health and could be life-threatening or worse. 
Thank you,
It is an honor and a duty in my view to help others in dire need.  I know most of you feel similarly.
Thank you for your kind consideration.


Brain Tumors - Most common cancer in 15-19 year olds, most common cause of cancer deaths in ages 15-39

Brain Tumors - Most common cancer in 15-19 year olds, most common cause of cancer deaths in ages 15-39

Please read article below published on Feb. 24, 2016, in which the American Brain Tumor Association has found that brain cancer is the highest cause of cancer deaths in ages 15-39 and the most common cancer among 15-19 year olds. 

Dr. Devra Davis shares research on effects from prenatal exposure to cell phone radiation: 3 times more DNA damage, spinal cord damage, damage to memory and thinking part of the brain (hippocampus) from only 15 minutes per day of cell phone radiation exposure for 7 days. Results were statistically significant.  The faster cells grow, the more vulnerable they are to toxic exposures.  Newborns double their brain size after birth.

My advice:  Minimize cell and DECT cordless phone use, and if you use them, hold them at a distance.  Children should use cell phones only in an emergency, and don't let your child hold the phone next to his/her head.  Your child should carry the phone with airplane mode on whenever possible, and Wi-Fi antennas should be off and turned on only when internet use is necessary.  (If you don't turn off the antennas, then they are emitting RF radiation.  Smart phones have a  voice antenna, Wi-Fi antenna, GPS, bluetooth antennas - and they are on all the time unless you turn them off)
Don't carry them in your pocket or bra.  ipads, Wi-Fi laptops emit the same radiation - minimize their use as well, use them at a table and don't hold in your lap.
Turn off wi-fi routers when not in use (especially at bedtime), and turn on only when needed.

Malignant brain tumors most common cause of cancer deaths in adolescents and young adults

Press Release, American Brain Tumor Association, Feb 24, 2016

Chicago, Ill., Feb. 24, 2016 - A new report published in the journal Neuro-Oncology and funded by the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) finds that malignant brain tumors are the most common cause of cancer-related deaths in adolescents and young adults aged 15-39 and the most common cancer occurring among 15-19 year olds.

The 50-page report, which utilized data from the Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States (CBTRUS) from 2008-2012, is the first in-depth statistical analysis of brain and central nervous system (CNS) tumors in adolescents and young adults (AYA). Statistics are provided on tumor type, tumor location and age group (15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34 and 35-39) for both malignant and non-malignant brain and CNS tumors.

"When analyzing data in 5-year age increments, researchers discovered that the adolescent and young adult population is not one group but rather several distinct groups that are impacted by very different tumor types as they move into adulthood," said Elizabeth Wilson, president and CEO of the American Brain Tumor Association.

"For these individuals -- who are finishing school, pursuing their careers and starting and raising young families -- a brain tumor diagnosis is especially cruel and disruptive," added Wilson. "This report enables us for the first time to zero-in on the types of tumors occurring at key intervals over a 25-year time span to help guide critical research investments and strategies for living with a brain tumor that reflect the patient's unique needs."

Although brain and CNS tumors are the most common type of cancer among people aged 15-19, the report shows how other cancers become more common with age. By ages 34-39 years, brain and CNS tumors are the third most common cancer after breast and thyroid cancer.

"What's interesting is the wide variability in the types of brain tumors diagnosed within this age group which paints a much different picture than what we see in adults or in pediatric patients," explained the study's senior author Jill Barnholtz-Sloan, Ph.D., associate professor, Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and Scientific Principal Investigator for CBTRUS.

"For example, the most common tumor types observed in adults are meningiomas and glioblastomas, but there is much more diversity in the common tumor types observed in the adolescent and young adult population. You also clearly see a transition from predominantly non-malignant and low-grade tumors to predominantly high-grade tumors with increasing age," Barnholtz-Sloan said.

There are nearly 700,000 people in the U.S. living with brain and CNS tumors and approximately 15 percent of these tumors occurred in the AYA population during the 2008-2012 time frame analyzed in this report. Approximately 10,617 brain and CNS tumors are diagnosed among adolescents and young adults each year and are the cause of approximately 434 deaths annually.

"The American Brain Tumor Association's recognition of this understudied population, and their commitment to data and information sharing should be applauded," added Barnholtz-Sloan. "There are clearly unique characteristics of the 15-39 age group that we need to more comprehensively understand and the information in the ABTA report starts that important dialogue."

Uninformed Exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation Is in Violation of the Nuremberg Code

Uninformed Exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation Is in Violation of the Nuremberg Code

Hi Sharon

Andrew Goldsworthy is perfectly right "that the uninformed exposure to RF from smart meters is in violation of the Nuremberg Code." I'd add to this that all those involved in promoting and abetting this horrific form of electromagnetic torture - whatever the method taken to deliver this toxic pollution - and conspiring to hide its true pervasive, toxic and ultimately lethal effects, are committing a crime against humanity and participating to a massive global genocide. Nothing less. But the most paradoxal aspect of it all is how much most everyone has been utterly brainwashed by the barrage of advertizement they have been subjected to into believing how smart and convenient these addictive microwaves-spewing technologies are, and thus, adopting them massively and using them non-stop--just like stupid lemmings rushing to their demise-to pollute their own bodies and everyone around them with this deadly radiation. It's the tobacco craze all over again, but much much worse and insidious.

Thanks for pointing out this link from (unfortunately not dated) Andrew Goldsworthy's statements on just how terribly dangerous smart meters really are... Here is what I've just added at

(Effects on the inner ear: Tinnitus, dizziness and nausea are due to false activation of the sensitive "hair cells" of the inner ear. When it occurs in those of the cochlea, it can cause tinnitus (false sensations of sound) ... When this occurs in the hair cells of the vestibular system (the part of the inner ear concerned with balance) they too send false signals to the brain, causing dizziness, loss of balance and symptoms of motion sickness, including nausea. These can be very debilitating. Effects on the brain itself are also due to the pulsed microwave radiation interfering with its normal electrical activity by generating extra by false nerve impulses. This can result in brain hyperactivity, stress headaches and a reduced ability to concentrate (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)). Autism can occur when ADHD occurs in the brain of the foetus and/or children under about 18 months... Microwave exposure has been linked to a fifty-fold increase in autism since the advent of mobile phones, cordless phones and their respective base stations... Other reported long-term effects of pulsed microwaves are obesity and fatigue... The disturbing effects of Wireless Smart Meters on sleep and cancer are apparently due to a reduction in melatonin production (a sleep hormone) by the pineal gland in the brain... There is also a more thandoubled risk of getting several forms of cancer as the immune system fails to dispose of aberrant cancer cells from various sources. Exposure to light at night is recognized by the World Health Organisation as being a Group 2A carcinogen (probably carcinogenic). We can therefore expect the current Group 2B status of wireless Smart meters to be elevated to Group 2A. Is the Government or Power Industry happy to take this risk with every household in the land?... The main pitfall in the introduction of wireless smart meters is the effects of their regular radiation pattern (especially at night) on the health of consumers. If you must have wireless smart meters for billing purposes, they should be restricted to one transmission per day and even that should not occur at night.)

You should check 7th Revision of the Declaration of Helsinki: Good News for the Transparency of Clinical Trials , which applies only in the context of medical practice and is about "...the need for fully informed consent in the context of medical practice." and not just in medical experimentation as indicated in the Nuremberg Code on which this declaration is based. It also states that "the US and Canadian, felt that the Nüremberg Code was too restrictive, particularly with respect to research involving children and people in mental health institutions and prisons."

Yet, I've refered to this Code in using Olle Johassson's brilliant observation...

"In connection with the Nuremberg trials after the Second World War for the first time a public code of ethics for medical experiments involving human beings, the Nuremberg Code 1947, was formulated. Among other things it was established that informed consent is required, and that the risks to subjects are to be minimized. It was emphasized that each participant has the right at any time to cancel their participation in an experiment, and that whoever leads such shall end it when it seems likely that a participant is injured. So when are we allowed to end our participation in this ongoing radiation experiment?"

Hi, Jean,
Andrew Goldsworthy is suggesting that the uninformed exposure to RF from smeters is in violation of the Nuremberg Code:
I don't know if Canada has accepted the Code into its laws, but if the US did there is a good chance Canada did.  This charge could be made against mandatory and uninformed exposure to wifi in schools, too and to cell towers, if would seem.
I am going to write to Goldsworthy and ask what he is planning or suggesting as the next step in UK.
What do you think?
