Jim West has released his unprecedented Bibliography of critical ultrasound research, as a book, available at harvoa.org and Amazon.com Ultrasound is a highly controversial topic. It can now be said, without hyperbole, that an understanding of its mysteries are essential to the well-being of the individual and the human species. The word “ultrasound” commonly refers to diagnostic ultrasound, an acoustic technology utilized to view images of the fetus in real time, its position within the mother, and to view the mother’s reproductive organs. It is an economic boon to medical practitioners who advocate its routine use. Diagnostic ultrasound is widely declared to be [&hellip

Excellent article published May 9, 2015 in the UK The Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/lifestyle/wellbeing/11589857/Is-Wi-Fi-making-your-child-ill.html As France bans Wi-Fi in nursery and primary schools, a British expert who has given up using wireless gadgets says we should do the same By Florence Waters 7:00AM BST 09 May 2015 Six years ago, Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe moved to the country, stopped carrying a mobile phone and sacrificed a successful career in emergency medicine to focus on a new medical interest – radiation emitted by Wi-Fi, mobiles and other wireless devices. She is now one of the country’s few professional advisers on medical conditi ons related to [&hellip

Light-emitting diode (LED) lights may cause permanent damage to your eyes, a new research has claimed. The study found that exposure to LED lights can cause irreparable harm to the retina of the human eye. Once the retina cells are destroyed by prolonged and continuous exposure to LED rays, they cannot be replaced and will not regrow, ThinkSpain.com reported. Researchers said this is caused by the high levels of radiation in the ‘blue band’, and is likely to become a global epidemic in the medium term given that computer, mobiles and TV screens, and even traffic and street lights, have been gradually [&hellip

Children in particular may be vulnerable Josh Harkinson, Mother Jones, May 11, 2015 Are government officials doing enough to protect us from the potential long-term health effects of wearable devices and cell phones? Maybe not. A letter released today, signed by more than 190 scientists from 38 countries, calls on the United Nations, the World Health Organization (WHO), and national governments to develop stricter controls on these and other products that create electromagnetic fields (EMF). “Based on peer-reviewed, published research, we have serious concerns regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices,” reads the letter, whose [&hellip

Sheryl Ubelacker, The Globe and Mail (Toronto), May 11, 2015 Wireless devices such as smartphones and tablets have certainly made staying in touch and plugging into the digital world easier and more convenient. But the increasingly ubiquitous nature of the technology is also raising concerns about possible adverse health effects from exposure to the electromagnetic radio-frequency waves that these devices emit. Worries about exposure to EM-RF fields were recently raised before the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health, which heard three days of submissions from international medical experts, advocacy groups and industry players. The all-party committee will now prepare a report on [&hellip

Scientists and safety advocates say Health Canada new rules do not take into account many new studies on the safety of cellphones and other wireless devices.  Paul Christopher Webster, CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal), May 7, 2015 Federal parliamentarians concluded three hearings into Health Canada’s safety regulations for cellphones and other wireless devices by asking for a detailed analysis of numerous recent cancer studies that indicate far tougher safety regulations may be warranted. The studies in question were not acknowledged in the scientific review, Safety Code 6 (2015) — Rationale, which exclusively released to CMAJ by Health Canada. The Safety Code 6 guideline, which was released Mar. 13, states [&hellip

These days, it’s impossible to escape blue light. TVs, computers, smartphones, tablets and e-readers bombard our eyes with blue light emissions day and night. Electronic devices aren’t the only culprits. Energy-saving light bulbs (notably LEDs) may be “green” but they also emit a significant proportion of blue light (also known as High-Energy Visible [HEV] light). While present in natural light, blue light occurs in abnormal proportions in artificial light sources. Blue/HEV light covers wavelengths from 380 to 500 nanometers (nm). Although the eyes’ natural filters block UV light, they do not block blue/HEV light, meaning it is able to pass [&hellip

Technology makes life easier for most – but not so much for radio astronomers. Belinda Smith explains Excerpt “Sometimes, though, goodwill doesn’t cut it. Astronomers at the 45-metre telescope at the Nobeyama radio observatory in Nagano, Japan, have tried to detect waves emitted by vibrating complex organic molecules – which may be related to the formation of life. Unfortunately, the radio frequency those molecules emit exactly matches the frequency used by car-mounted anti-collision radar systems. “Anti-collision radar is quite powerful by radio astronomy standards and may even damage our equipment,” Lockman says. “It’s much stronger than the incidental radiation that leaks [&hellip

By Sandi Maurer, Director, EMF Safety Network April 13, 2015 http://emfsafetynetwork.org/overview-of-pgecpuc-emails-on-smart-meters/  PG&E deployed over nine million utility “smart meters” on homes and businesses in California. The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) supported the multibillion dollar deployment despite lawsuits and complaints about overcharges, privacy and security risks, fires and explosions, and health problems from the pulsed electromagnetic radiation (RF) smart meters emit. The CPUC is responsible for regulating the utilities to ensure safe and reliable utility service. Instead, they partnered with PG&E and marketing companies on a smart meter propaganda campaign. CPUC President Michael Peevey intentionally delayed the legal process for years so [&hellip
