Wireless RF Can Cause Heart Irregularity, Headaches, Tinnitus, Dizziness, Says Dr. Havas @ AHMA


Don't have a heart-attack over this information, but your cordless and/or wireless phone may be making your heart change beats.

Dr. Magda Havas, Professor of Environmental and Resource Studies at
Trent University, Canada will present new evidence showing a link
between heart irregularities and electromagnetic fields from wireless
phones at the American Holistic Medical Association conference in
Cleveland, OH on Friday, November 6th and at a conference of
the EMR Policy Institute in Golden, CO, Sunday, November 8th.

Havas' 25-person study is Phase I of a 100-person study examining the
heart's reactivity to microwave radiation emitted by common DECT
cordless phones.

This is the first time such striking effects from
microwave radiation being emitted by wireless phones has been documented
scientifically in a double blind study and it is important information
for health practitioners to know. Patients today experiencing
electrohypersensitivity symptoms are commonly put on drugs for other
conditions with similar symptoms, instead of being taught how to create
an electromagnetically clean environment to eliminate symptoms.

Symptoms of electrohypersensitivity include headaches, difficulty
concentrating, insomnia, heart irregularities and much more. 
Radiation emitted from DECT portable phones is the same microwave
radiation as emitted by cell phones. Havas' new study will add to the
growing interest in the health effects of cell phones, broadening the
focus beyond cell phones' association with brain tumors to their effect
on other systems, including the heart. Senate hearing were held in
September on this emerging public health issue, organized by Sen. Arlen
Specter and Chaired by Senator Tom Harkin and the subject is of growing
concern among government leaders nationally.

In their illustration, Subject B experienced an increase in heart rate on exposure to a
nearby portable phone. The heart rate immediately returned to the
baseline after the cordless phone was unplugged.

Havas' study on heart rate variability was blinded, which means that the
volunteers did not know when the phone was on or off. Most of the
volunteers did not respond to the exposure, but those who did respond
experienced arrhythmia (irregular beats of the heart) and/or tachycardia
(rapid heart rate). These symptoms were often accompanied by feelings of

Havas states, "While not everyone who is electrically sensitive responds
in this manner, those who do will have difficulty being in environments
where microwave radiation is present, which is virtually everywhere in
our modern, wireless culture." She adds, "Cordless phones and cell
phones as well as wireless computers and wi-fi networks generate this
form of microwave radiation."

Additional symptoms of EHS include headaches, fatigue, difficulty
concentrating, poor short-term memory, difficulty sleeping, skin
problems, tinnitus, nausea, and dizziness. Many of these symptoms are
subjective and difficult to measure.

Havas' study, to be presented at the conference in Golden, CO this
Sunday, heralds the ability of health practitioners to determine if
cardiac irregularities might be triggered by electromagnetic radiation
before resorting to invasive or chemical symptom-suppressing cardiac
therapeutics. She and co-investigator Jeff Marrongelle, DC of Schuylkill
Haven, PA will also present the findings at the American Holistic
Medical Association conference in Cleveland, OH this Friday, November 6th.

Dr. Havas's is a world-renowned expert in electromagnetic fields. Her
current research is concerned with the biological effects of
electromagnetic pollution including radio frequency radiation,
electromagnetic fields, dirty electricity and ground current. She is
co-author, with Camilla Rees, of the new book, "Public Health SOS:
The Shadow Side of the Wireless Revolution
