Magnetic fields detrimental to blood pressure

This article dates to about 2000 or before. Cell phones started appearing in 1985 depending on the country of use. Cell phone use has skyrocketed as has hypertension and other health problems.

In 2003 I presented a program to health care professionals discussing EMF as a cause of modern and mostly undiagnosable disease. With the accumulation of research on the impact of EMF and health, I still do not believe I am off course in my thinking.

Cells phones carried by doctors contribute to higher infection rates in hospital. EMF contributes to asthma because the non-ionizing redaction from cell phones attracts particulate matter, causing it to adhere to lung tissue.

Hands free gadgets used in cars create a very high amount of EMF radiation that can lead to accidents and poor driving decisions.

I recommend an air tube head set which can be purchased from CHI, as can our book, Blood Pressure Care Naturally.
Recent German research shows the magnetic fields emitted during phone use may be detrimental to those having high blood pressure.

LONDON --- Mobile phones, an essential accessory for millions of people, could increase blood pressure significantly, German researchers said yesterday.

In a letter in The Lancet medical journal, Dr Stephan Braune of the University Neurology Clinic in Freiburg, Germany said that radio-frequency electromagnetic fields (EMF) emitted by the telephones pumped up the blood pressure of 10 young volunteers who took part in a study.

Dr Braune and his team attached the phones to the right side of the volunteers' heads and switched them on by remote control at various intervals. they measured their heart function and blood pressure (BP) while they were standing and lying down.

They measured their heart function and blood pressure (BP) while they were standing and lying down.

There was no sound so the volunteers did not know when they were being exposed to the EMF.

The researchers found that 35 minutes fo radio-frequency EMF caused "increases in resting BP between five and 10 mm HG". An average good blood pressure is 136/75 mm HG.

The finding could have adverse effects on people sufering from high blood pressure or hypertension, an important risk factor for heart disease and stroke which are leading causes of death in most developed countries.

The researchers said the increase in blood pressure probably resulted from constriction of the arteries by the radio frequency electro-magnetic fields.

According to a report early this year in the Medical Journal of Australia, a sharp rise in the incidence of brain tumours there may be linked to the use of mobile telephones.

Cancer specialist Andrew Davidson of Fremantle Hospital in Western Australia said the state's cancer registry had revealed a 50 percent rise in the incidence of the disease in men and a 62.5 percent increase for women in the decade from 1982.

"It is conjectured that the rise in incidence is related to the use of analogue mobile phones in the late 80s," Dr Davidson wrote in a letter to the journal.

But former Telstra telecommunications scientist Bruce Hocking said that on the evidence so far, there was no proven risk of brain cancer from mobile phones or other communication devices.

Mobile telephones have been linked to a variety of health problems ranging from fatigue, headaches to burning skin, but there is still no proof that the gadgets pose any serious health risks -- REUTERS, AFP.

Author's comment: One way to minimize risks is to purchase an external ear-plug accessory for your phone.
