The changes now taking place in our environment are unprecedented in human history. A constant throughout the ages has been “change.” However, in the last century the rate of change has been increasing exponentially to the point where we can no longer keep up. This is true in both developing nations as well as in fully industrialized nations.
While the positive changes brought about by progress are, in some cases, massive in breadth and scope, there have been sweeping alterations in the way we live that will one day be regarded as a threat to the very survival of the human race. In fact, according to an article published in the popular German magazine “Spiegel,” the human race has created an environment that, without outside help, is no longer compatible with life.
Such is the threat of “ electrosmog.”
What is electrosmog? It is the sum total of all man-made additions to the electromagnetic spectrum that may be biologically harmful. Mankind has altered the natural electromagnetic spectrum with high power lines (overhead as well as buried cable), household appliances, exercisxe equipment, alarm clocks, dishwashers, computers, cell phones and cell phone towers, WiFi, Bluetooth, microwave ovens, heating lamps, satellites, x-rays, , radio frequencies, and x-ray radiation.
Think about the changes that have been wrought on our environment in just the last 25 years with the advent of the cellular telephone. An entirely new technology was introduced that has change, if not overwhelmed, the way we live. The incessant receipt of calls, voice messages, text messages, or email notifications taints family gatherings around an evening meal. And television has made the evening meal a thing of the past. Many reading this won’t recall a time when there was such a thing in their home. The “CrackBerry” has sullied our choice to engage in focused relationship with one another. The iPhone has become our link to the outside world, often tempting us to ignore (or neglect?) the world in front of our face.
As regards health, the consequences are just as bad, if not life-threatening. Just two hundred years ago allergy was virtually unheard of. Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and erectile dysfunction did not exist. Cancer was a rare. With the advent of electricity came a new category of disease: Civilization Sickness. And the association between this category of illness and electrosmog is based on compelling scientific evidence.
The August 2009 Issue of the medical journal “Pathophysiology” is entirely dedicated to radiofrequencies (predominantly the cell phone and cell phone towers) and man-made high power electrical lines, and their toxic effects on human health. Collectively, the contributing scientists to this edition are issuing a strong warning. They are saying: “The evidence is in — the votes have been tallied. Consensus is overwhelmingly clear: cell phones (man-made radiofrequency) and power lines (man-made Electromagnetic fields at 50 to 60 Hz) cause cancer.” This should be MORE than a little disturbing to us. And we must act on these facts as a society as well as personally in the interest of health!
Milham, from the Washington State Department of Health, Olympia, WA, USA, has just published a paper entitled: “Historical evidence that electrification caused the 20th century epidemic of “diseases of civilization.” (Med Hypotheses 2010 Mar;74(3):615-6. The author, culling through a mountain of data that is nearly a century old, found that the death rates of urban dwellers – where electrification was much more widespread and adopted more quickly than rural environments – were significantly higher for cancer, heart disease, diabetes and suicide in 1940. His hypothesis is that the 20th century epidemic of these so-called “diseases of civilization” was caused by electrification and not by lifestyle.
Electricity in the power frequency range – 50 to 60 Hz – can pose a biological threat even at extremely low magnitudes. This has been proven with studies on EMF exposure in children with leukemia. Radiofrequencies – from 100 kHz to 300 GHz – are also harmful, and it won’t be long before the prevalence of cancers from these man-made frequencies starts to rise.
Important note: The natural tonic frequencies of the Earth’s field are approximately 7 to 12 Hz – much lower than the man-made frequencies discussed above. Just as harmful bacteria can lead to disease and death, and as beneficial bacteria can combat these threats, so beneficial energies (at natural frequencies) can combat the harmful man-made frequencies discussed above.
