Schlafstörungen, Unruhezustände, Lernstörungen bei Kindern, beschleunigtes Krebswachstum, Blutbild- und Erbgutveränderungen, ist das für den Abbau der UMTS-Sender nicht ausreichend?

Es stimmt einfach nicht, daß es "keinen wissenschaftlichen Nachweis für gesundheitliche Gefahren" gibt. Es gibt unzählige seriöse Studien aus dem In- und Ausland, die die Schädlichkeit des gepulsten Mobilfunks beweisen.

Scientific research concerning human well-being and health in the vicinity of phone masts.

This is an overview of all epidemiologic and provocative research concerning human well-being and health in the vicinity of masts for GSM and UMTS (3G) mobile communication. The object of the research are living humans. This overview does not contain in vitro or in vivo (animals) laboratory research, because they do not give a consistent picture of what happens to people who are exposed permanently to pulsed radiofrequency radiation.

Links Cell death induced by GSM 900-MHz and DCS 1800-MHz mobile telephony radiation.Panagopoulos DJ, Chavdoula ED, Nezis IP, Margaritis LH. Department of Cell Biology and Biophysics, Faculty of Biology, University of Athens, Panepistimiopolis, 15784 Athens, Greece.

In the present study, the TUNEL (Terminal deoxynucleotide transferase dUTP Nick End Labeling) assay - a well known technique widely used for detecting fragmented DNA in various types of cells - was used to detect cell death (DNA fragmentation) in a biological model, the early and mid stages of oogenesis of the insect Drosophila melanogaster.

The flies were exposed in vivo to either GSM 900-MHz (Global System for Mobile telecommunications) or DCS 1800-MHz (Digital Cellular System) radiation from a common digital mobile phone, for few minutes per day during the first 6 days of their adult life.

The exposure conditions were similar to those to which a mobile phone user is exposed, and were determined according to previous studies of ours [D.J. Panagopoulos, A. Karabarbounis, L.H. Margaritis, Effect of GSM 900-MHz mobile phone radiation on the reproductive capacity of D. melanogaster, Electromagn. Biol. Med. 23 (1) (2004) 29-43; D.J. Panagopoulos, N. Messini, A. Karabarbounis, A.L. Philippetis, L.H. Margaritis, Radio frequency electromagnetic radiation within "safety levels" alters the physiological function of insects, in: P. Kostarakis, P. Stavroulakis (Eds.), Proceedings of the Millennium International Workshop on Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields, Heraklion, Crete, Greece, October 17-20, 2000, pp. 169-175, ISBN: 960-86733-0-5; D.J. Panagopoulos, L.H. Margaritis, Effects of electromagnetic fields on the reproductive capacity of D. melanogaster, in: P. Stavroulakis (Ed.), Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields, Springer, 2003, pp. 545-578], which had shown a large decrease in the oviposition of the same insect caused by GSM radiation.

Our present results suggest that the decrease in oviposition previously reported, is due to degeneration of large numbers of egg chambers after DNA fragmentation of their constituent cells, induced by both types of mobile telephony radiation. Induced cell death is recorded for the first time, in all types of cells constituting an egg chamber (follicle cells, nurse cells and the oocyte) and in all stages of the early and mid- oogenesis, from germarium to stage 10, during which programmed cell death does not physiologically occur.

Germarium and stages 7-8 were found to be the most sensitive developmental stages also in response to electromagnetic stress induced by the GSM and DCS fields and, moreover, germarium was found to be even more sensitive than stages 7- 8. I received it like that, without a link: Chemo drugs 'destroy brain cells' [source BBC News 30th Nov 2006]

A team from New York's University of Rochester found several types of key brain cell were highly vulnerable to the drugs. They say it might help explain side effects such as seizures and memory loss associated with chemotherapy - collectively dubbed 'chemo brain'.

The research, on mice, is published in the Journal of Biology. Drug therapy for cancer can prompt a wide range of neurological side effects, even the onset of dementia. But they were thought not to be directly linked to the drug treatment itself. Instead, some doctors have put them down to the patient's vulnerable psychological state. The latest study found that dose levels typically used when treating patients killed 40% to 80% of cancer cells - but 70% to 100% of brain cells. Several types of healthy brain cell continued to die for at least six weeks after exposure.

Common drugs tested Lead researcher Dr Mark Noble said: "This is the first study that puts chemo brain on a sound scientific footing, in terms of neurobiology and cellular biology." The Rochester team carried out tests with three drugs used to treat a wide range of cancers: carmustine, cisplatin and cytosine arabinoside. All three drugs were toxic to several types of brain cell whose job is to repair other cells in the brain - even at very low concentrations.

They also killed off oligodenrocyte cells, which play a key role in the transmission of messages around the nervous system. The researchers suggest damage to cells in the hippocampus, which is responsible for memory and learning, is most likely to explain chemo brain symptoms. Professor John Toy, Cancer Research UK's medical director, said: "The doses of therapy needed to treat cancer while leaving the body's healthy cells as unharmed as possible is a fine balance judged by experienced specialists.

"They aim to maximise benefits and minimise damage. Unfortunately side-effects can include toxicity to the brain. "This research in mice may hopefully suggest new ways of researching how this toxicity might be overcome. "It is important to remember, however, that all presently available cancer treatments have gone through extensive clinical trials to ensure that their benefits outweigh unwanted effects.

"No patient should stop their treatment because of this research." The researchers said it might be possible to add protective agents to chemotherapy drugs. They also suggest further work to pinpoint which cells are most at risk.

Abstract

Background: The use of cellular and cordless telephones has increased dramatically during the
last decade. There is concern of health problems such as malignant diseases due to microwave
exposure during the use of these devices. The brain is the main target organ.

Methods: Since the second part of the 1990's we have performed six case-control studies on this topic encompassing use of both cellular and cordless phones as well as other exposures. Three of the studies concerned brain tumours, one salivary gland tumours, one non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and one testicular cancer. Exposure was assessed by self-administered questionnaires.

Results: Regarding acoustic neuroma analogue cellular phones yielded odds ratio (OR) = 2.9, 95
% confidence interval (CI) = 2.0–4.3, digital cellular phones OR = 1.5, 95 % CI = 1.1–2.1 and
cordless phones OR = 1.5, 95 % CI = 1.04–2.0.

The corresponding results were for astrocytoma grade III-IV OR = 1.7, 95 % CI = 1.3–2.3; OR = 1.5, 95 % CI = 1.2–1.9 and OR = 1.5, 95 % CI = 1.1–1.9, respectively.
The ORs increased with latency period with highest estimates using > 10 years time period from first use of these phone types. Lower ORs were calculated for astrocytoma grade I-II.
No association was found with salivary gland tumours, NHL or testicular cancer although an association with NHL of T-cell type could not be ruled out.

Conclusion: We found for all studied phone types an increased risk for brain tumours, mainly acoustic neuroma and malignant brain tumours. OR increased with latency period, especially for astrocytoma grade III-IV. No consistent pattern of an increased risk was found for salivary gland tumours, NHL, or testicular cancer.

Funkturm-Umgebungsstudie aus Ägypten

22.11.2006

Die Redaktion des Newsletter Elektrosmognews gibt Ihnen eine Information aus der Lektüre medizinischer Fachliteratur des Jahres 2006 aus Ägypten weiter. Wir haben diesen englischen Artikel für Sie ins Deutsche übersetzen lassen.

Neuropsychologische Auswirkungen bei Menschen rund um Funktürme

Zusammenfassung

Hintergrund: Grund zu der Annahme, dass hochfrequente elektromagnetische Strahlung von Funktürmen gesundheitsgefährdend auf das menschliche Nervensystem wirkt.

Ziel: Mögliche neuropsychologische Defizite bei Personen, die in der Nähe von Funktürmen leben, auszumachen.

Methodik: Es wurde eine Querschnittsstudie bei 85 Personen durchgeführt, die in der Nähe des ersten Funkturms im Gouvernorat Menoufiya in Ägypten leben. Während 37 Personen im Gebäude unter dem Funkturm leben, leben 48 gegenüber der Funkanlage. Eine Kontrollgruppe von 80 Personen wurde mit der bei dem Funkturm lebenden Gruppe auf Alter, Geschlecht, Beruf und Bildungsniveau abgeglichen. Zusätzlich zum Eysenck personality questionnaire (EPQ) füllten alle Teilnehmer einen klar strukturierten Fragebogen aus, der Fragen über die persönliche Entwicklung, die Bildungs- und Krankengeschichte, Grund- und neurologische Untersuchungen und eine neuropsychologische Testbatterie [dies umfasst Tests zur visuell-motorischen Geschwindigkeit, Problemlösungen, Aufmerksamkeit und Gedächtnis] enthielt.

Ergebnisse: Die Prävalenz von neuropsychiatrischen Beschwerden wie Kopfschmerzen (23.5%), Veränderungen im Gedächtnis (28.2%), Schwindel (18.8%), Zucken (9.4%), Depressionen (21.7%) und Schlafstörungen (23.5%) waren bei den in Reichweite des Funkturms lebenden Personen deutlich höher als bei den Kontrollpersonen (10%), (5%), (5%), (0%), (8.8%) und (10%), jeweils (P < 0.05). Die neuropsychologische Testbatterie ergab, dass die in der Nähe des Funkturms lebenden Personen eine deutlich niedrigere Leistungsfähigkeit in einem der Aufmerksamkeits- und auditiven Kurzzeitgedächtnistest [Paced Auditory Serial Addition Test (PASAT)] aufwiesen als die Kontrollpersonen. Die Personen, die gegenüber der Anlage lebten, wiesen weiterhin eine niedrigere Leistungsfähigkeit im Problemlösungstest (Block Design) als die Bewohner unter der Anlage auf. Alle Bewohner erbrachten bessere Leistungen in den beiden Tests zur visuell-motorischen Geschwindigkeit (Digit Symbol und Trailmaking B) und in einem der Aufmerksamkeitstests (Trailmaking A) als die Kontrollpersonen. Die zuletzt gemessenen Werte der hochfrequenten elektromagnetischen Strahlung des ersten Funkturms im Gouvernorat Menoufiya waren niedriger als die erlaubten Höchstwerte ('Digital Symbol' und 'Trailmaking' sind zwei spezielle Aufmerksamkeitsteste, d.Hrsg.).

Schlussfolgerungen und Empfehlungen: Personen, die in der Nähe von Funktürmen leben, können neuropsychiatrische Probleme entwickeln und sowohl positive als auch negative Veränderungen in ihrer Leistungsfähigkeit hinsichtlich der neuropsychologischen Funktionen erfahren. Deswegen wird eine Überarbeitung der offiziellen Richtlinien zur Exposition der Öffentlichkeit von hochfrequenter elektromagnetischer Strahlung von Funktürmen und die Benutzung einer neuropsychologischen Testbatterie zur regelmäßigen Bewertung und Früherkennung biologischer Effekte auf Bewohner rund um solcher Anlagen empfohlen.

Received 20 October 2005; accepted 18 July 2006

Background: There is a general concern on the possible hazardous health effects of exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic radiations (RFR) emitted from mobile phone base station antennas on the human nervous system. Aim: To identify the possible neurobehavioral deficits among inhabitants living nearby mobile phone base stations.

Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted on (85) inhabitants living nearby the first mobile phone station antenna in Menoufiya governorate, Egypt, 37 are living in a building under the station antenna while 48 opposite the station. A control group (80) participants were matched with the exposed for age, sex, occupation and educational level. All participants completed a structured questionnaire containing: personal, educational and medical histories; general and neurological examinations; neurobehavioral test battery (NBTB) [involving tests for visuomotor speed, problem solving, attention and memory]; in addition to Eysenck personality questionnaire (EPQ).

Results: The prevalence of neuropsychiatric complaints as headache (23.5%), memory changes (28.2%), dizziness (18.8%), tremors (9.4%), depressive symptoms (21.7%), and sleep disturbance (23.5%) were significantly higher among exposed inhabitants than controls: (10%), (5%), (5%), (0%), (8.8%) and (10%), respectively (P < 0.05). The NBTB indicated that the exposed inhabitants exhibited a significantly lower performance than controls in one of the tests of attention and short-term auditory memory [Paced Auditory Serial Addition Test (PASAT)]. Also, the inhabitants opposite the station exhibited a lower performance in the problem solving test (block design) than those under the station. All inhabitants exhibited a better performance in the two tests of visuomotor speed (Digit symbol and Trailmaking B) and one test of attention (Trailmaking A) than controls. The last available measures of RFR emitted from the first mobile phone base station antennas in Menoufiya governorate were less than the allowable standard level.

Conclusions and recommendations: Inhabitants living nearby mobile phone base stations are at risk for developing neuropsychiatric problems and some changes in the performance of neurobehavioral functions either by facilitation or inhibition.




So, revision of standard guidelines for public exposure to RER from mobile phone base station antennas and using of NBTB for regular assessment and early detection of biological effects among inhabitants around the stations are recommended.

Microwaves (MW) from cellular phones may affect biological systems by increasing free radicals, which may enhance lipid peroxidation levels of the brain, thus leading to oxidative damage. Melatonin is synthesized in and secreted by the pineal gland at night and exhibits anti-oxidant properties. Several studies suggest that supplementation with anti-oxidant can influence MW-induced brain damage.

The present study was designed to determine the effects of MW on the brain lipid peroxidation system, and the possible protective effects of melatonin on brain degeneration induced by MW. Twenty-eight Sprague-Dawley male rats were randomly divided into three groups as follows: (1) sham-operated control group (N = 8); (2) study 900-MHz MW-exposed group (N = 8); and (3) 900-MHz MW-exposed+melatonin (100 microg/kg sc before daily MW exposure treated group) (N = 10). Cortex brain and hippocampus tissues were removed to study the levels of lipid peroxidation as malonyl dialdehyde. The levels of lipid peroxidation in the brain cortex and hippocampus increased in the MW group compared with the control group, although the levels in the hippocampus were decreased by MW+melatonin administration. The brain cortex lipid peroxidation levels were unaffected by melatonin treatment.

We conclude that melatonin may prevent MW-induced oxidative changes in the hippocampus by strengthening the anti-oxidant defense system, by reducing oxidative stress products.

BACKGROUND: The mobile phones emitting 900-MHz electromagnetic radiation (EMR) may be mainly absorbed by kidneys because they are often carried in belts. Melatonin, the chief secretory product of the pineal gland, was recently found to be a potent free radical scavenger and antioxidant. The aim of this study was to examine 900-MHz mobile phone-induced oxidative stress that promotes production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) on renal tubular damage and the role of melatonin on kidney tissue against possible oxidative damage in rats.

METHODS: The animals were randomly grouped as follows: 1) sham-operated control group and 2) study groups: i) 900-MHz EMR exposed (30 min/day for 10 days) group and ii) 900-MHz EMR exposed+melatonin (100 microg kg(-1) s.c. before the daily EMR exposure) treated group. Malondialdehyde (MDA), an index of lipid peroxidation), and urine N-acetyl-beta-d-glucosaminidase (NAG), a marker of renal tubular damage were used as markers of oxidative stress-induced renal impairment. Superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) activities were studied to evaluate the changes of antioxidant status.

RESULTS: In the EMR-exposed group, while tissue MDA and urine NAG levels increased, SOD, CAT, and GSH-Px activities were reduced. Melatonin treatment reversed these effects as well. In this study, the increase in MDA levels of renal tissue and in urine NAG and also the decrease in renal SOD, CAT, GSH-Px activities demonstrated the role of oxidative mechanism induced by 900-MHz mobile phone exposure, and melatonin, via its free radical scavenging and antioxidant properties, ameliorated oxidative tissue injury in rat kidney.

CONCLUSIONS: These results show that melatonin may exhibit a protective effect on mobile phone-induced renal impairment in rats.

PURPOSE: To assess the effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF) emitted by mobile phones (MP) on the 1 - 20 Hz event-related brain oscillatory EEG (electroencephalogram) responses in children performing an auditory memory task (encoding and recognition).

MATERIALS AND METHODS: EEG data were gathered while 15 subjects (age 10 - 14 years) performed an auditory memory task both with and without exposure to a digital 902 MHz MP in counterbalanced order.

RESULTS: During memory encoding, the active MP modulated the event-related desynchronization/synchronization (ERD/ERS) responses in the approximately 4 - 8 Hz EEG frequencies. During recognition, the active MP transformed these brain oscillatory responses in the approximately 4 - 8 Hz and approximately 15 Hz frequencies.

CONCLUSIONS: The current findings suggest that EMF emitted by mobile phones has effects on brain oscillatory responses during cognitive processing in children.

The data on biologic effects of nonthermal microwaves (MWs) from mobile telephones are diverse, and these effects are presently ignored by safety standards of the International Commission for Non- Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). In the present study, we investigated effects of MWs of Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) at different carrier frequencies on human lymphocytes from healthy persons and from persons reporting hypersensitivity to electromagnetic fields (EMFs). We measured the changes in chromatin conformation, which are indicative of stress response and genotoxic effects, by the method of anomalous viscosity time dependence, and we analyzed tumor suppressor p53-binding protein 1 (53BP1) and phosphorylated histone H2AX (gamma-H2AX), which have been shown to colocalize in distinct foci with DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs), using immunofluorescence confocal laser microscopy. We found that MWs from GSM mobile telephones affect chromatin conformation and 53BP1/gamma-H2AX foci similar to heat shock.

For the first time, we report here that effects of MWs from mobile telephones on human lymphocytes are dependent on carrier frequency. On average, the same response was observed in lymphocytes from hypersensitive and healthy subjects.

Figure 1. Images of fixed human lymphocytes (counterstained blue with ToPro-3-iodide) showing 53BP1 foci (stained green with Alexa fluor 488) and gamma-H2AX foci (stained red with Cy3) as revealed by immunostaining and confocal laser microscopy of cells from subject 501. Significantly fewer foci were observed after 1 hr
exposure to 915 MHz and heat shock (41°C) than in control cells. Exposure to 905 MHz resulted in a statistically significant increase in the number of 53BP1 foci in cells from this subject .
Bar = 10 µm.


Nonthermal MWs from GSM mobile telephones at lower levels than the ICNIRP safety standards affect 53BP1 and -H2AX foci and chromatin conformation in human lymphocytes. These effects suggest induction of stress response and/or DNA damage. For the first time, we report that mobile telephone MWs affect 53BP1 and -H2AX foci dependent on carrier frequency. We also show that heat shock induces similar responses. The same responses were observed in lymphocytes from healthy subjects and from subjects reporting hypersensitivity to EMFs.

.. I see that Eva Markova et al (2005) from Stockholm University and the Karolinska were able to demonstrate in vitro that GSM frequencies coiuld induce apoptosis in cells (human lymphocytes). This important study appeared in the prestigious Environmental Health Perspectives, but dont think either the media or the protest groups noticed it. So far it hasnt been replicated, but if anyone has £16,000 to spare we could do that at this lab.

Sog. Replikationsstudie zur TNO-Studie oder UMTS Base Station-like Exposure, Well Being and Cognitive Performance, von S.J. Regel, et al., EHP online doi: 10.1289/ehp.8934 6. Juni 2006

Die Studie könnte böswillig als eine Farce bezeichnet werden, denn sie hat die TNO-Studie nicht repliziert.

Doch sind Autoren mit gutem Willen an die Sache herangegangen. Was falsch war, denn sie hätten etwas anderes finden können, wenn sie die TNO-Studie exakt kopiert hätten.

Die niederländische Studie hat nämlich:

1. nicht die extreme Auswahl getroffen wie in Zürich (Kriterien für Ausschluss waren u.a. chronische Krankheiten, Schwangerschaft, Schlafstörungen, Alkoholkonsum, Schichtarbeit, Überseeflüge), so dass nicht die übliche belastete Bevölkerung als Versuchsgruppe diente, sondern eine Super-Auswahl.

2. Die Gruppen wurden nicht mit den GSM-Frequenzen belastet, was sie möglicherweise in der TNO-Studie "reif" gemacht hatte für die Empfindlichkeit gegenüber UMTS. Ein sehr großer Unterschied, denn die Holländer konnten Daten vergleichen von

a) Trainings-Runde
b) Placebo (0-Strahlung)
c) GSM 900 MHz (D1)
d) GSM 1800 MHz (D2)
e) UMTS 2100 MHz

jeweils immer auf alle Personen angewendet, was wirklich etwas anderes ist.

3. Vom Alter her sind die Gruppen nicht vergleichbar, d.h. zu viele junge Leute. Man hat das Gefühl, die Untersucher wollten nicht wissen, was macht UMTS zusätzlich zu sonstigen Belastungen, denen man gewöhnlich ausgesetzt ist, und wie wirkt sich die zusätzliche Strahlung aus, sondern was macht UMTS bei ausgesuchten Leuten ohne sonstige belastende Eigenschaften wie z.B. Schlafstörungen.

4. Der Belastungsrhythmus war meines Wissens gegenüber der TNO-Studie ein anderer, da nach 20 Min. Unterbrechungen waren, die in Holland nicht berichtet wurden, wo Exposition 45 Min. im Stück erfolgte gegenüber den drei Frequenztypen in unterschiedlicher Reihenfolge. In Zürich gab es keine Reihenfolge in dem Sinne. sondern nur zwei anschließende gesendete - je Gruppe gemischt applizierte? - Frequenzintensitäten 1 und 10 V/m - und somit keine Möglichkeit der Sensitisierung durch D1 und D2-Wellen.

Soviel zu Methoden.

Ergebnisse:

Zwei Fragebogenarten wurde verwendet.
Mit dem Züricher Typ ergeben sich in Tabelle 1 Score-Summen über 2 bis 2,6, gleichgültig ob
a) Sensitive oder
b) Nich-Sensitive befragt und
ob c) UMTS eingeschaltet war oder nicht.

Hier stutzt der Fachmann bereits.

Mit dem TNO-Fragebogen ergaben sich dagegen Scores um 10 herum bei Sensitiven und um 5 bei Nicht-Sensitiven. Der TNO-Fragebogen konnte demnach die Empfindlichen von den anderen gut trennen.

Tabelle 3 ergibt bei anderer Anordnung bereits den interessanten Hinweis darauf, dass Sensitive das reale Feld häufiger erkannt haben (Odds Ratio 1.39-fach) als Nicht- Sensitive. Ausgelassen wurden durch die Autoren 29 Personen, die angeblich kein Feld erkannt haben. Wie kommt es dann, dass die sham-Exposition (= kein Feld) von den restlichen als "Feld" erkannt wurden — oder muss die Legende der Tabelle geändert werden, weil für die Ausgeschlossenen als Begründung angegeben wird, sie hätten in allen drei Konditionen kein Feld erkannt, was bei sham ja auch in keinem Fall möglich sein dürfte.

Als Ergebnis der statistischen Auswertung wird gesagt, dass die Verteilung der Befundgruppen auch per Zufall auftreten und somit erwartet werden konnte. Das mag stimmen, doch waren die Sensitiven eindeutig öfter positiv und richtig bei der Erkennung der realen Felder (17 von 30 = 58 %) als die Nicht-Sensitiven (22 von 49 = 44,5 %), was m. E. vernachlässigt wird und nicht ohne weiteres als "expected by chance" abzutun ist.

Die Autoren gestehen zu, dass unabhängig von der Einwirkungsstärke die empfundene Belastungsintensität bei Sensitiven in 68% mit Unwohlsein korrelierte und in 64% der Nicht-sensitiven, beide Male statistisch gesichert erhöht.

Gleiche Befunde sollen sich mit den TNO-Daten gezeigt haben, die Daten werden aber nicht gezeigt und auch nicht explizit genannt (d.h. keine Prozentangaben usw.). Warum nicht, bleibt rätselhaft.

Die auffallendste Quelle von Befunden war das objektive Testen von kognitiven Leistungen. Hier ergaben sich für die Nicht-Sensitiven Befunde, wo in der TNO-Studie nichts zu finden gewesen war. In der Gedächtnisprüfung (1-back-Task) fand sich bei Nicht-Sensitiven eine Verminderung von null Exposition (sham) zu 10 V/m in einer Sitzung, was als nicht erwünschter Effekt gelten muss und zunächst nicht wegerklärt wird, zumal es bei der UMTS-Exposition der TNO-Studie nicht vorkam.

Außerdem würde ein Argument nicht mehr zutreffen: Die Studie soll gegenüber der TNO-Studie mit 2 Gruppen zu 36 Personen eine Verbesserung ergeben haben, da zwei Gruppen mit 33 und 84, gesamt 117 einbezogen wurden. Hätte man bspw. 250 Personen untersucht, wären die Ergebnisse durchaus im Bereich einer stärkeren Ausprägung mit größeren Zahlen und dann nicht mehr zufällig verteilt gefunden worden?

Mir erscheint daher die Formulierung in der Zusammenfassung nicht einleuchtend, wenn auch nicht direkt falsch: Die Effekte waren marginal (aber dann doch erkennbar?) und konnten auch durch Zufall gefunden werden. Das ist ausgewichen und so ausgedrückt, dass man nichts mit den Befunden anfangen kann, aber auch keine absolute Sicherheit hat, dass nichts gefunden wurde.

Es bleibt also die mit der TNO-Studie erstmals beschriebene Unsicherheit, was sich bei

a) älteren Personen an Beschwerden ergeben wird, denn bei der TNO-Studie waren die Sensitiven etwa 10 Jahre älter als die Nicht-Sensitiven,

b) mittelbare Folgen bei längere als der 45-minütige Exposition (d.h. Tag und Nacht permanent) einwirkenden Frequenz empfunden wird.

c) Dass sich ohne die TNO-Studie aus der jetzt vorgelegten Studie zwar kein starker Verdacht ergeben hätte, doch keinesfalls zutrifft, was von Barmüller leichthin behauptet wurde: Die TNO-Studie sei "korrigiert" worden.




Powerlines and childhood leukemia

20 Jun 2006

from
"EMR and Health"- A new magazine, April-Jun 2006, Vol 2 No 2
http://emraustralia.com.au


Children exposed to 4 mG or more had nearly five times the risk of acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Japanese scientists have found a strong link between childhood leukemia and magnetic fields. Powerlines and childhood leukemia High magnetic fields in the bedroom may increase the risk of childhood leukemia by up to five times.

This is the finding of a new Japanese study published recently. The research was conducted in five urban areas in Japan, home to over ten million children and accounting for over half of the Japanese population below 15 years of age.

The locations yielded 312 children with either acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) or acute myelocytic leukemia (AML). To identify the children’s exposure, the researchers took measurements of magnetic fields around the house. These included spot measurements in different rooms and outside the house and continuous measurements in the child’s bedroom for a period of a week.

Readings for all subjects were conducted within a short time span to prevent variations in magnetic fields from seasonal changes in electricity use. The results showed that the risk of leukemia was increased for children exposed to magnetic fields of 4 milligauss (mG) or more, but not for children at lower exposures.

The researchers found that children exposed to 4 mG or more had 2.56 times the normal risk of ALL and AML. However, the really startling connection was for ALL. Children exposed to 4 mG or more had 4.67 times the risk of this disease. The results were not affected by socio-economic factors such as parental education, smoking, alcohol consumption or type of residence.

The study’s results are consistent with the findings of other residential studies. In an analysis of residential studies on power lines in 2000, Dr Sander Greenland found an increased risk of leukemia in children exposed to over 2 mG with increased risk at higher exposures. In the same year Dr Anders Ahlbom found that children exposed to over 4 mG had double the expected rate of leukemia. In 2001 Sir Richard Doll also found double the risk of leukemia for children exposed to over 4 mG.

As a result of studies such as these, in 2001 the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified magnetic fields of 4 mG and over as possibly carcinogenic to humans.

The present study adds weight to this connection. Four milligauss is one 250th of the recommended public exposure level of the International Commission for Non Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) and many international standards, including present Australian guidelines.

According to the authors, the present study has an advantage over previous residential studies by providing more accurate measurements of exposure. This is because weeklong measurements were taken as well as spot measurements for each subject; because measurements were taken in close time proximity and because they were taken close to the time of diagnosis. The study was conducted at the recommendation of the World Health Organisation for residential studies in high exposure countries.

It is the first large-scale study of this sort to be conducted outside Europe and the US. References

Well Being-Studie aus Zürich, Dringender Zeugenaufruf

Schwarzenburg, 12.6.06

Da es eigentlich keine Replikation der TNO-Studie, sondern eine neue Studie mit neuem Design und neuen Parametern war, sind die Untersuchungsergebnisse an der ETH/UNI-Zürich sehr unglaubwürdig ausgefallen. Dies bestätigen uns kritische Wissenschafter laufend.

Zum Beispiel wurde in Zürich behauptet, dass keine Auswirkungen kurzfristiger Mobilfunkstrahlung auf das Wohlbefinden und die kognitiven Fähigkeiten des Menschen gefunden wurden. Das ist schlichtweg unwahr.

Von den 33 teilnehmenden Probanden, die sich selbst als elektrosensibel bezeichnet hatten, sind uns namentlich leider nur 2 bekannt. Und ausgerechnet diese 2 wiesen nach den Versuchen gravierende gesundheitliche und kognitive Störungen auf. So zum Beispiel der Verlust der Fähigkeit, bis einige Stunden nach der Bestrahlung ein Auto führen zu können, obschon beide erfahrene Autofahrer mit langer Fahrpraxis waren.

Es sind deshalb große Zweifel an den Aussagen der Studienleiter aufgetaucht und wir rufen alle 32 als elektrosensibel eingestufte Probanden auf, sich bei uns zu melden und kurz über ihre eigenen Erfahrungen zu berichten. Wir möchten herausfinden, ob es sich bei den 30 übrigen Probanden tatsächlich um Elektrosensible gehandelt hat.

Als größte Betroffenen-Organisation der Schweiz müssten wir diese Leute nämlich zum größeren Teil kennen. Wir bitten auch alle um ihren Bericht, welche die Versuche vorzeitig abgebrochen haben und nicht mehr zu den restlichen Bestrahlungen erschienen sind. Egal, ob sie sich zuvor selber als elektrosensibel oder nichtsensibel bezeichnet hatten.

Interessieren würde uns der Grund des Abbruchs. Geben Sie uns als Zeuge bitte Ihre Adresse bekannt Wir rufen Sie dann an oder senden Ihnen einen Fragebogen zu, je nachdem, wie groß der Rücklauf aus dieser Aktion wird. Bei genügendem Interesse ist auch ein Wochenendtreffen zwecks Erfahrungsaustausch vorgesehen. Bei all unseren Veröffentlichungen wird große Diskretion zugesichert.

Am 22. April 2005 "Um Menschen die Gesundheit zu erhalten" habe ich einen Online-Ratgeber im Polnisch veröffentlicht. Dort unter Punkt 5.5

"Die Übereinstimmung der aktuellen Ergebnisse mit dem Wissensstand vor der Mobilfunkseuche" stand von mir:

Hier fehlt nur noch Uri Geller.."Die Wiederholung durch die Mobilfunkkonzerne der TNO-Studie in der Schweiz wird bei anderen Ergebnissen die Manipulation und die Unwissenheit über das Wesen der Doppelblindstudie beweisen. Weder die TNO-Untersuchungen aus Holland noch die REFLEX-Studie muß man wiederholen. Diese Studien wurden schon überprüft !

Die Replikation der TNO-Studie in der Schweiz wird zum Teil durch die Konzerne der Mobilfunkindustrie (Swisscom Mobile, Orange i Sunrise) finanziert und ist nicht transparent. Die Ergebnisse werden den Wünschen der Geldgeber entsprechen. Die Studien die durch die Schweizer Fränkli der Mobilfunkkonzerne beeinflußt sind, kann man weder als neutrale Untersuchungen noch als Doppelblindstudien bezeichnen.

Das ist so, als würden die angeklagten Mörder die Arbeit der Staatsanwälte und Richter finanzieren. Wenn die Angeklagten sich durch die Bezahlung von Richter und Staatsanwälten freikaufen können, dann ist das nicht nur Korruption, sondern der Beweis für die Mafia im Staatswesen.

Der Pakt zur Finanzierung der TNO-Studie in der Schweiz zeigt diese mafiöse Struktur.

Die TNO-Ergebnisse aus dem Land der Käse mit den großen Löchern werden leider die Grundlage für weiteres Wachstum der Mobilfunktürme bilden.

Die "Replikation der TNO-Studie" aus der Schweiz ist da und meine Prophezeiung hat sich bewahrheitet. Bin ich ein Wahrsager?

Nein, aber diese Studie beeinflußt von den Philologen Röösli und Teilchenphysikerin Moser roch schon seit Jahren nach Schiebung. Rote Karte für Moser und Co. Anscheinend in der neutralen Schweiz hat die Mobilfunkmafia mehr zur sagen als die wissenschaftlichen Kritiker, die Mobilfunkgegner und die Bevölkerung der Schweiz.

Rubins et al provocation study- further comments

April 21, 2006
From: "Clas Tegenfeldt" tegen von bemi.se

A dual band GMSM telephone can have an transmitter power of 0,002 W up to 2 Watts. The SAR of some GSM telephones reach 2 W/kg, if we assume this happens when the phone transmitts 2 W then we would have 0,002 W/kg when the phone transmitts at its lowest level. Thus the sham exposure in the report is about the same as when someone is talking in a GSM telephone near a basestation (thus the lowest transmitted power).

This happens for indoor GSM systems as well as macro cells (if you are some hundred meters from the basestation). The difference reported in the study is 1,4 W/kg and 0,002 W/kg for exposure and sham respectively, that is less than a factor of thousand I used above. It is therefore HIGHLY questionable that the SHAM exposure can be regarded as such! If there would be a clear cut threshold for symptoms provoked by the exposure that happened to be between the 0,002 and 2 W/kg exposures then - maybe - the study would have given some information.

But, it is also possible, and also more probable, that the sham exposure (like talking in a GSM phone at lowest power) is above the threshold and therefore CANNOT be considered a SHAM exposure. The reported fact (see fig. 2 in report) that symptoms increased even during "sham" exposure is a dead giveaway that the "sham" exposure wasn´t sham!

The subjects gave a baseline for symptoms after 30 minutes in the enviroment, but still: their symptoms started to increase even during sham for 50 minutes and then started to decline after stopping the exposure! Rubin et. al. makes a point of this "interesting fact" but have completely missed the obvious!

If one assumes that all three exposure conditions are exposured (no sham) the graph (fig.2) make more sense. It is also highly questionable that the sham exposure was due to technical constraints, it is NOT a hard task modifying a GSM phone (or other RF exposure device) such that the leakage is well below their stated "SHAM" of 0,002 W/kg.

From a technical viewpoint the "sham" exposure of 0,002 W/kg is totally unnecessary and unmotivated. The motivation for the sham exposure is "heat", but is that a justifiable motivation?

One can simply add a thermal resistance powered by a DC voltage instead!!!!!! Such a resistor costs just about what one second of laboratory time costs...

More Kundi against Vodafone-WHO

19.04.2006

Michael Kundi

exfrom Environmental Health Perspectives Volume 113, Number 3, March 2005


"Epidemiology of Health Effects of Radiofrequency Exposure"

In a recently
published review (Kundi et al. 2004) on mobile phone use and cancer, we concluded that

Epidemiological studies that approached reasonable latencies [time period between first exposure and diagnosis] consistently observed elevated risk for the development of neoplastic diseases.

This assessment is distinctly different from the main message of the review from the International Commission for Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP; Ahlbom et al. 2004). The authors stated that

Results of these studies to date give no consistent or convincing evidence of a causal relation between RF [radiofrequency field] exposure and any adverse health effect.

Although the use of subjective terms is sometimes unavoidable in the context of risk assessment (e.g., to evaluate sufficiency of evidence), the decision whether or not it evidence is "convincing" should be left to the reader. Furthermore, what constitutes consistent evidence or the lack of it is unclear when the scope is as broad as the authors implied in their reference to a "causal relation between RF exposure and any adverse health effect."

This review of epidemiologic evidence addressed the issue of causation without any consideration of the concept of causation in epidemiology, and it failed in its essential task to assess the possible association between exposure to RF and health. Concerning cancer, Moolgavkar and Luebeck (2003) have shown that agents that increase the growth rate of preneoplastic cells may have a distinctly greater impact on cancer incidence than agents that induce malignant transformation. However, this holds only for agents that act for prolonged periods of time. Regarding the natural history of cancer, a noticeable effect at the population level will only occur many years (and possibly decades) after first contact with the promoting agent. Although Ahlbom et al. (2004) pointed to the insufficient latencies in epidemiologic studies, they did not draw the straightforward conclusion--to assess the relationship between the latencies covered in the studies and their outcome.

Although there is agreement between Ahlbom et al. (2004) and us (Kundi 2004; Kundi et al. 2004) that epidemiologic studies of RF/microwave exposure generally have deficiencies concerning exposure assessment, we must not ignore that the consequence of exposure misclassification is predominantly a bias of risk estimates towards the zero hypothesis.

Another aspect that has contributed to, in our view, the inappropriate assessment of evidence is their view about the end points of the investigations. Among malignancies studied so far, the most heterogeneous group are brain tumors that comprise benign as well as malignant neoplasms with grossly different cellular origin, growth behavior, and fate. Until now no risk factor for brain tumors has firmly been established except ionizing radiation for meningeoma and menigeal sarcoma and less consistently for other brain tumors. Regarding brain tumors of high malignancy, little is known about induction periods and the steps necessary to reach the final invasive state; however, case reports of glioma after sellar irradiation (Simmons and Laws 1998) suggest an average induction period of about 10 years. Therefore, because exposure started too late for an effect during initiation and because proliferation is too fast for an effect on growth rate, brain tumors of highest malignancy must be studied very thoroughly in relation to latency, which was not the case for most of the studies published so far. Disregarding these conditions will strongly dilute any possible effect.

Except for insufficient latency, other sources of possible bias were mentioned by Ahlbom et al. (2004), but again without consideration of the consequences on risk indicators. Ahlbom et al. (2004) stated that

Several of these studies did not follow workers after they left the job of interest (Garland et al. 1990; Grayson 1996; Szmigielski 1996), with the potential for bias if individuals left employment because of health problems that subsequently turned out to be due to cancer....

The presence of this bias in these studies would have reduced the power in the case of no relation between exposure and the likelihood of leaving employment due to early signs of the target disease, or it would have led to a bias of risk estimates in the direction determined by the sign of the correlation between exposure and leaving service. It is quite likely that this correlation is positive because early signs of brain tumors will create problems in radio operators and also in personnel operating and maintaining radar equipment. Hence, the consequence of the bias is either reduction in the precision or inflation of risk estimates.

The author declares he has no competing financial interests.

Epidemiology of Radiofrequency Exposure: Ahlbom et al. Respond

We thank Kundi for his comments on our review of the epidemiologic literature on health effects of radiofrequency exposure (Ahlbom et al. 2004). He points out, quite correctly, that our assessment of the literature differs from the one he and colleagues have made in a previous review (Kundi et al. 2004). We do, however, stand by our judgment that the literature we reviewed offers little support for a causal relation between radiofrequency exposure and disease risk. Although quality of research varies, most of the studies we reviewed were methodologically limited and more rigorous studies are needed. It is obviously impossible to tell what more sophisticated research along the lines suggested by Kundi, and also by ourselves, will reveal in the future. We certainly agree that consideration of latency and various types of bias is important and, indeed, we did consider these at some length in our review.

The authors declare they have no competing financial interests.

press release

The article 'Are some people sensitive to mobile phone signals?'
by Rubin c.s. was published recently in British Medical Journal (15 April 2006 in BMJ 2006;332:886-891, doi:10.1136/bmj.38765.519850.55)

Frans van Velden MSc

Rubin et al. define electromagnetic sensitivity as a condition in which symptoms are reported AFTER perceived exposure. This is not the definition of electromagnetic (hyper)sensitivity (EHS). EHS is a condition in which symptoms are reported as related to and attributed to exposure to electromagnetic fields (WHO factsheet 296, to be found exhere.)

The afflicted persons perceive symptoms and not exposure. The latter is impossible, since EHS and non-EHS individuals cannot detect exposure.

It has been suggested that symptoms might arise from environmental factors unrelated to electromagnetic fields. There are some indications that symptoms may be due to worries about health effects of electromagnetic fields, rather than the exposure itself. Some studies suggest that reactivity in the central nervous system and imbalance in the autonomic nervous system in EHS afflicted tend to be outside the normal range (WHO factsheet 296). The suggestion of Rubin, that perceived exposure is the cause of symptoms, is contradictionary to 'Whatever its cause ...' (WHO factsheet 296).

Usually EHS is assumed on the basis of single-blind experiences, exposure is confirmed afterwards by environmental data or measurements. According to WHO factsheet 296 no scientific basis currently (i.e. December 2005) exists for a connection between EHS and electromagnetic fields. This is under discussion. High frequency electromagnetic fields have proven effects on biological systems. They intensify the neuronal activity, influence the cerebral bloodflow and brain activity, damage DNA and indications that they cause headaches are concrete
(Report for T-Mobile, Jülich Institute, 9 May 2005, to be found exhere).

Rubin et al. write "Participants were exposed to .. a sham exposure with no signal present" (Abstract, Intervention). This is contradictionary to their clarification "For the sham exposure, a continuous wave signal was generated .. only a minimal leakage of this signal occurred (SAR < 0,002 W/kg)"
(Methods, Exposures). It means Rubin et al. answered the research question beforehand. They assumed people are not sensitive to a signal when the SAR is less than 0,002 W/kg. David Bücher from Darmstadt already made clear that 2 mW/kg is even above the SAR during the exposure phase of the study by Zwamborn et al. in 2003
(rapid response to be found exhere).

Figure 2 of Rubin et al. (to be found exhere, the time scale is not constant) shows results of the provocation. It does not give all the information about the different densities and structures of the electromagnetic fields, but the growth and decline of the headache severities are consistent. After 50 minutes the results are the same for self-declared sensitive people and self-declared non-sensitive people. The severities however are different. Without any knowledge of the densities and structures of the electromagnetic fields this is exactly what would be expected with an open mind.

Rubin et al. confirm that the symptoms were not trivial. They are puzzled by the results. Did some inadequacy exist in the methods? The sensitivity of the visual analogue scales and the statistical techniques did not have any short-comings. However, they overlook one simple, uncomplicated explanation: the SAR is not an indicator of how worse the scenario. A 'sham' signal with 0,002 W/kg triggered about the same headache severity as a GSM-signal with 1,4 W/kg. This corresponds with people reporting being sensitive to mobile phones at distances of one metre or more. Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, former head of the WHO, reported headaches by stand-by mobile phones closer than four metres, abating until half an hour after the phones were turned off (Aud Dalsegg, Dagbladet Norge, 9 March 2002).

Instead Rubin et al. choose a vague and complicated explanation, the nocebo ('I will harm') effect. Again, they answer the research question beforehand, by the assumption that all exposures do not cause symptoms. However, the nocebo effect can not fully explain the results. The headaches of the self-declared non-sensitive people can not be attributed to a nocebo effect, since these people do not believe a mobile phone can do harm. The growth and decline of the headache severities of the non-sensitive people are not random, they show the same pattern as of the sensitive people, the only difference is less severity.

A nocebo effect would imply a difference between the two groups. Rubin et al. did not find any difference from the questionnaires or demographic data.

There is no indication of different behaviour, lifestyle, personality. No indication of a different attitude to modern electromagnetic equipment. Many self-declared sensitive people have a positive attitude to mobile communication and were early adaptors. According to Rubin et al. it is interesting that symptom severity increased during exposition. A nocebo effect indeed would produce a different picture. Nocebo effects are usually vague. Figure 2 is not vague at all.

In medicine, a nocebo effect means people re-label existing ailments as side effects of their medication (Arthur Barsky). This means people who have headaches, whatever the cause, start to attribute them to mobile phone use. So, the self-declared sensitive people should report headaches before and in between of mobile phone use too. The headaches should stay away when using a mobile phone and being told there is no field (placebo effect). Nocebo is a learning process. The attribution of a headache to a mobile phone call is rather unlikely, since it is a positive experience to be able to communicate with other people freely.

Instead of accepting the simple and straightforward explanation (electromagnetic fields cause headaches) Rubin et al. walk into the swamp of nocebo and placebo effects.

Why? Rubin: "Right. There was no difference in symptom severity between our sham condition and the active conditions which were approximately 700 times stronger. I think that's quite good evidence that it wasn't the RF (radio frequency) that was causing the symptoms."

Simplified, Rubin says a train driving 4.5 km/hour can not hurt anybody, because it has 700 times less energy than a train driving 110 km/hour. The effect of the first train is nocebo, so the effect of the second train is also nocebo. If people who do not think a train can hurt are hit, they also suffer from nocebo effects.

The interaction of electromagnetic fields and biological systems is not like that. There is an abundance of sources, producing together the environmental factor electromagnetic fields, with local density and structure (frequencies, modulations) variable in time. There are many people with different sensitivities to different effects, therefore suffering from different consequences. Rubin et al. have been found coherent results by provocation.

They found evidence that the concrete indications that electromagnetic fields cause headaches are true. People who ignore this, are suffering from a nolebo ('I don't want to') effect.

Be careful, studies from Vodafone and Co.

Commenting on a separate protest earlier this month, a Vodafone spokeswoman, said it did not matter whether the masts were 1m or 1,000m away from residents - it was "all about power levels".

Vodafone spokeswoman on masts:
"We're talking about a power level of 150 watts, which is a bit like a powerful light bulb," she said.

Dr. Sadezki separate the Swedish study from the INTERPHONE

Iris Atzmon
Sun, 2 Apr 2006

Yediot Ahronot (the most distributed newspaper in Israel, p. 14, on 1/3 page) and the radio interviewed Dr. Sigal Sadezki (Israeli INTERPHONE representative) about the new study from Sweden. It is expected to see her interviewed about it also in the evening news today on TV stations.

A study: long phone conversations cause cancer by Rivka Freilich Yediot Ahronot 2.4.06

Speaking on the cell phone or cordless phone during 1 hour a day, for several years, raises the risk for brain cancer in 240% . This is what a big study done at the university hospital in Orbero Sweden shows.

The study was done during the years 1997-2003 and checked the cell phone use among 2200 cancer patients and among a similar number of controls. Among the cancer patients, at the age of 20-80, 905 had malignant brain tumors and one tenth of them were heavy users of cell or cordless phones.
"This is the biggest study done ever" said prof Lennart Hardell who led the project.

The study clearly showed that the danger to get a brain tumor is higher at the same part of the brain where you out the phone during the conversation. He expressed confidence that the study would bring a wave of criticism: 'It is always like this when the results point to a direction in contrast to powerful economic interests".

Dr. Sigal Sadezki said that "this is the scientific study with the most severe results that were received until now about the link between cellular phones use and malignant brain tumors".

According to her, although there were doubts about the scientific results of this researcher in the past, the current study went through a check according to all the scientific rules, and there is a need to relate to his conclusions. "Until today, most studies didn't find a significant connection between conversation hours and malignant tumors" explains Dr. Sadezki. We're talking about a study which found that users above 2000 hours suffered more from malignant tumors in relation to people who didn't use cell phone.

"We have to remember that we are still in an era of uncertainty with regard to the health effects of the cellular radiation, and this is because not enough time has passed yet since the start of use with this technology. That's the reason we should not lighten the results of this study. There's a need to use speakers, ear pieces and to minimize putting it close to the head".

On the radio, very brief summary:

Dr. Sigal Sadezki was asked by the interviewer to detail the results of the new Swedish study, and she did it, she emphasized these are malignant tumors, she detailed the levels of the risk for users, but the first thing she insisted doing is to separate the Swedish study from the INTERPHONE, she emphasized on the radio, that the Swedish study is not the bottom line study of the subject, but the INTERPHONE will be much larger and more important, and we should all wait for it (another two months, she promised.

She promised the same amount of time also one year ago, btw). And she also emphasized that also the INTERPHONE will not give the final results, that we need to wait 30 more years in order to get the final results, the INTERPHONE results will refelect, according to her, the picture that we have until now.

Naturally, the media coverage attracted a lot of interest in the public, and at the bottom line, the message is passed: the results were passed to the public, and Dr. Sigal Sadezki herself helped them to get through, which is very nice indeed for someone, who represents the cellular companies.

16 Mar 2006, Update

Pooled analysis of two case-control studies on use of cellular and cordless telephones and the risk for malignant brain tumours diagnosed in 1997-2003.

Objectives:
To study the use of cellular and cordless telephones and the risk for malignant brain tumours.

Methods:
Two case-control studies on malignant brain tumours diagnosed during 1997-2003 included answers from 905 (90%) cases and 2,162 (89%) controls aged 20-80 years. We present pooled analysis of the results in the two studies.

Results:

Cumulative lifetime use for >2,000 h yielded for analogue cellular phones odds ratio (OR)=5.9, 95% confidence interval (CI)=2.5-14, digital cellular phones OR=3.7, 95% CI=1.7-7.7, and for cordless phones OR=2.3, 95% CI=1.5-3.6.
Ipsilateral exposure increased the risk for malignant brain tumours; analogue OR=2.1, 95% CI=1.5-2.9, digital OR=1.8, 95% CI=1.4-2.4, and cordless OR=1.7, 95% CI=1.3-2.2.
For high-grade astrocytoma using >10 year latency period analogue phones yielded OR=2.7, 95% CI=1.8-4.2, digital phones OR=3.8, 95% CI=1.8-8.1, and cordless phones OR=2.2, 95% CI=1.3-3.9.
In the multivariate analysis all phone types increased the risk. Regarding digital phones OR=3.7, 95% CI=1.5-9.1 and cordless phones OR=2.1, 95% CI=0.97-4.6 were calculated for malignant brain tumours for subjects with first use use <20 years of age, higher than in older persons.

Conclusion:
Increased risk was obtained for both cellular and cordless phones, highest in the group with >10 years latency period.

Part I

A new UN study that is defined as "the most authoritive study to date of the effects of the explosions that ripped apart Chernobyl reactor number 4 on 26 april 1986. It was compiled by the Chernobyl Forum, which involves more than 100 scientists, eight UN agencies and the governments of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine".

According to the study, the number who will die from long-term cancers caused by radiation will be 3490.

The deaths will be among almost 600,000 most contaminated by the accident
50 workers died from acute radiation poisoning or linked causes.
9 of 4000 children who have contracted thyroid cancer since the disaster have also died. The precise number of death is "unlikely ever to be known".
The study suggests that alongside radiation, mental illness has been the biggest public health problem caused by the accident.

This review considers electrical sensitivity (ES) in terms of the subjective attribution of symptoms to electric and magnetic fields and radiations (EMFs), at levels below those shown to cause adverse health effects. The use of the term ES in this review does not imply the acceptance of a causal relationship between symptoms and attributed exposure, however.

The issue of power lines

http://tennet.nl/english/news/archive/8693.asp#0

The magnetic fields by the Wintrack powerline system are decreased, because the lines are always six in a perfect circle (before, they were in triangles). The magnetic fields neutralize each other extensively. Moreover there are conductors in the ground, I don't understand exactly how, I think they take stray fields away. Ask them: servicecentrum@tennet.org

Das Verhältnis zwischen Leukämie-Risiko bei Kindern und Hochspannungsleitungen

EN

Kinder, die in der Nähe von Hochspannungsleitungen aufwachsen, erkranken häufiger an Leukämie als Kinder, deren Zuhause weit von Starkstromleitungen entfernt liegt.

Zu diesem Ergebnis kommen Wissenschaftler der Universität Oxford in der Studie "Childhood cancer in relation to distance from high voltage power lines in England and Wales: a case-control study". Die Wissenschaftler hatten dazu die Wohnorte von 29.000 krebskranken Kindern - 9700 mit Leukämie auf der Insel untersucht und festgestellt, daß überdurchschnittlich viele an Leukämie erkrankte Kinder in der Nähe von Überlandleitungen leben.

Kinder, die weniger als 200 Meter entfernt von einer Hochspannungsleitung auf die Welt kommen, haben demnach ein 69 Prozent höheres Risiko an Leukämie zu erkranken als Kinder, die mehr als 600 Meter entfernt von einem Starkstrommasten geboren wurden.

Leben Kinder in einer räumlichen Entfernung von 200 bis 600 Metern zu den Überlandleitungen, ist das Risiko einer Leukämie-Erkrankung gegenüber der weiter entfernt wohnenden Vergleichsgruppe laut Studie um 23 Prozent größer. Für andere Krebsformen wurde kein erhöhtes Risiko gefunden.

Die Autoren, die ihre epidemiologischen Erkenntnisse jetzt in der Fachzeitschrift British Medical Journal veröffentlicht haben, weisen allerdings darauf hin, daß es für die statistischen Daten derzeit keine akzeptierten biologischen Wirkmechanismen gebe.



9.6.05, Anm. von Krzysztof Puzyna (umtsno)

Es gibt verschiedene Theorien über die Wirkung der elektromagnetischen Felder auf Lebewesen: Manczarski - Plasma-Theorie, die Tesla-Resonanz-Theorie oder die Studie von Bo Sernelius. siehe auch die Erklärung von Dr. Hyland während der Konferenz der Whistleblower am 07.09.2003 in Starnbek

Ihrer gemeinsame Nenner ist, daß die elektromagnetischen Felder in der Milliarden mal kleineren Stärke als die Grenzwerte der ICNIRP-Maffia ( und durch diese Maffia unterwanderte WHO-Organisation in Genf) die lebenden Organismen schädigen. Keine dieser Theorien hat jemals eine Chance auf Anerkennung solange die Verbrecher und Lobbyisten von Vodafone bei WHO in Genf ihr Unwesen treiben dürfen. Übrigens der von Dr. Hyland zitierte Direktor von WHO hat einen Namen- er heißt Repacholi

Association between childhood leukaemia and high voltage power lines

DE

Conclusions There is an association between childhood leukaemia and proximity of home address at birth to high voltage power lines, and the apparent risk extends to a greater distance than would have been expected from previous studies. About 4% of children in England and Wales live within 600 m of high voltage lines at birth. If the association is causal, about 1% of childhood leukaemia in England and Wales would be attributable to these lines, though this estimate has considerable statistical uncertainty. There is no accepted biological mechanism to explain the epidemiological results; indeed, the relation may be due to chance or confounding.

Adlkofer's study from REFLEX
DE

Non-thermal DNA breakage by mobile-phone radiation (1800MHz) in human fibroblasts and in transformed GFSH-R17 rat granulosa cells in vitro.

Diem E, Schwarz C, Adlkofer F, Jahn O, Rudiger H.

Division of Occupational Medicine, Medical University of Vienna, Waehringer Guertel 18-20, Vienna 1090, Austria.

Cultured human diploid fibroblasts and cultured rat granulosa cells were exposed to intermittent and continuous radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) used in mobile phones, with different specific absorption rates (SAR) and different mobile-phone modulations. DNA strand breaks were determined by means of the alkaline and neutral comet assay. RF-EMF exposure (1800MHz; SAR 1.2 or 2W/kg; different modulations; during 4, 16 and 24h; intermittent 5min on/10min off or continuous wave) induced DNA single- and double-strand breaks. Effects occurred after 16h exposure in both cell types and after different mobile-phone modulations. The intermittent exposure showed a stronger effect in the comet assay than continuous exposure. Therefore we conclude that the induced DNA damage cannot be based on thermal effects.

Nicht-thermische DNA-Brüche durch Mobilfunkstrahlung (1800 MHz) in
menschlichen Fibroblasten und in veränderten GFSH-R17 Granulosazellen
von Ratten in vitro


Studie

Abstract: Rattenkulturzellen (diploide Fibroblasten und Granulosazellen) wurden in intermittierender und kontinuierlicher hochfrequenter elektromagnetischer Strahlung (RF-EMF) mit verschiedenen spezifischen Absorptionsraten (SAR) und unterschiedlichen mobilfunktypischen Modulationen exponiert. Die Brüche der DNA-Stränge wurden mit Hilfe der alkalischen und neutralen Comet Assay-Methode bestimmt. Die RF-EMF Exposition (1800MHz; SAR 1,2 oder 2W/kg; unterschiedliche Modulationen; während 4, 16 und 24 Stunden; intermittierend 5 min an / 10 min aus oder kontinuierliche Wellen) bewirkte DNA Einzel- und Doppelstrangbrüche.

Diese Wirkungen traten nach einer Exposition von 16 Stunden in beiden Zelltypen auf und nach unterschiedlichen Mobilfunkmodulationen. Die intermittierende Exposition zeigte stärkere Auswirkungen beim Comet Assay als die kontinuierliche Exposition, woraus die Autoren schließen,daß die Schädigung der DNA nicht durch thermische Effekte verursacht wird.

Aus dem Abstract: Die Chlorophylle der Blätter von Robiniensämlingen (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) wurden nach Exposition in hochfrequenten elektromagnetischen Feldern (400 MHz) quantitativ untersucht. Nach dreiwöchiger täglicher Exposition (1, 2, 3 und 8 Stunden) wurde die Menge des Chlorophylls gemessen. Dabei wurde festgestellt, daß die Menge an Chlorophyll-a als auch die an Chlorophyll-b gesunken war, außer bei einer Expositionszeit von zwei Stunden, bei der eine beträchtliche Steigerung zu verzeichnen war.

Der Versuch zeigte, daß das Verhältnis der beiden Haupttypen des Chlorophylls logarithmisch abnahm in dem Maße wie die tägliche Exposition andauerte.

Cell phone base stations change brain currents and cause unwellness
DE
Research in Austria

The radiation of a cell phone base station at a distance of 80 metres causes significant changes of the electrical currents in the brains of testees (measured by electroencefalogram, EEG). All the testees said they felt unwell during the radiation, some of them seriously.

That is the result of an investigation by a team of Austrian scientists. They measured alpha 1 (8 to 10 Hz), alpha 2 (10 to 12 Hz) and beta waves (13 to 20 Hz). A small density of GSM 900 and GSM 1800 radiation already caused several significant changes in these three frequency ranges. This means the body is stressed - temporarily this may have some positive
effect, in the long run however stress certainly reduces the quality of life, capacity for work and state of health.

(LK) "Die Ergebnisse einer neuen Studie zeigen weltweit erstmals, daß die Einstrahlung einer Mobilfunksendeanlage (GSM 900/1800 MHz) in etwa 80 Metern Entfernung zu signifikanten Veränderungen unterschiedlicher EEG-Parameter führt. Die gemessenen Veränderungen der Gehirnströme sind mit verschiedenen vegetativen und zentralnervösen Störungen, über die die Probanden berichteten, in Zusammenhang zu bringen."

Dies teilte heute, Mittwoch, 27. April, der Salzburger Umweltmediziner Dr. Gerd Oberfeld vom Referat "Gesundheit, Hygiene und Umweltmedizin" des Landes mit.

Europaparlament will mehr Schutz vor Elektrosmog

BRÜSSEL (taf). Präventive ärztliche Kontrollen zum Schutz von Arbeitnehmern vor elektromagnetischen Feldern sollen verstärkt werden. Dies hat das Europäische Parlament (EP) gefordert und damit grünes Licht für eine geplante Richtlinie gegeben.

Das Regelwerk setzt Expositionsgrenzwerte zum Schutz von Arbeitnehmern fest. Wird ein Grenzwert überschritten, muss der Mitarbeiter ärztlich untersucht werden. Die Richtlinie zielt vor allem auf Beschäftigte in der Stahlindustrie, Metallbearbeitung oder auf Personen, die in der Nähe von Fernseh- oder Radioübertragungsmasten, Radargeräten sowie Mobilfunkantennen arbeiten.

Elektrosensibilisierung und magnetische Kontrastmittel

Elektrosensibilisierung, Dispositionen zu Allergien und anderen Gesundheitsstörungen einschließlich Krebs durch magnetisierende Kontrastmittel + Elektrosmog

Bitte geben Sie diese Informationen an Selbsthilfegruppen und an Initiativen gegen Elektrosmog weiter. Es besteht der begründete Verdacht, daß magnetische Kontrastmittel, die wegen einer (besseren) Resonanz bei bildgebenden Diagnoseverfahren gespritzt werden, Elektrosensibilisierungen auslösen können. Zudem ist zu befürchten, daß hierdurch die bioelektrischen Systeme einschließlich Nervensystem beeinträchtigt werden können.

Gesundheitsbeeinträchtigungen durch Elektrosmog

Der Elektrobiologe Harald Moritz führt langjährig Statistik

Jeder Mensch reagiert sehr spezifisch auf Umwelteinflüsse, zu denen auch die elektromagnetischen Felder zählen.

Auf Grund meiner mehr als zehnjährigen Erfahrung als Elektrobiologe, sowie ähnlicher Auffassung in Fachkreisen, haben sich bei besonders exponierten Patienten jedoch ähnliche Abläufe entwickelt.

Demnach reagiert der menschliche Organismus in drei Stufen auf Elektrosmog:

1. Phase - Störungsphase

Hierbei reagiert der Körper mit Befindlichkeitsstörungen und Stresssymptomen wie Schlafstörungen, Appetitlosigkeit, Nervosität, Konzentrationsschwäche sowie vegetativen Komponenten.

2. Phase - Beeinträchtigungsphase

Die Symptome der Störungen werden nun deutlicher wahrgenommen, z.B. als starke Kopfschmerzen bzw. Migräne, Verdauungsstörungen, Immunschwäche, stärkerer Infektanfälligkeit und weiteren organischen Störungen.

3. Phase - Pathologische Phase (Krankheit)

Die dritte Phase bedingt eine Erkrankung, die ohne Reduzierung der Elektrosmogbelastung, dann häufig zu einer irreversiblen Krankheit führt. Hier dokumentiert sich ein breites medizinisches Krankheitsspektrum.

Workshop on Biological Effects of EMF, Kos, Greece


Poland, as one of the countries that recently has joined the EU, has now to change their safety limits. Their original safety limits were much stricter than EU’s ICNIRP limits, so for them it is also a step backwards.

SAR is getting a growing number og opponents and is considered as useless by many. Actually it is based on electrical fields and not on magnetic fields. Proposals for other ways to measure and express exposure were proposed e.g. Poland (#A7:1-Trzaska H.).
