Nearly half of Canadians facing major illness struggle financially
TORONTO – Nearly half of Canadians facing a major health incident like cancer or a stroke are struggling financially as a result of their illnesses, according to a report from Sun Life Financial.–The company’s annual health index found that 40 per cent of those surveyed earlier this year reported feeling financially strapped after a serious health event or diagnosis, while 53 per cent of 45 to 54 year olds have been hit hard by unforeseen health care costs. While a majority of Canadians realized that a serious health event could impact their personal finances, only 13 per cent said they had money set aside for uncovered health care costs. “People don’t necessarily see themselves as being at risk for a major health event, it’s not something you want to think about,” Kevin Dougherty, president of Sun Life Financial Canada (TSX:SLF), said in an interview. “As well, people maybe have a feeling that the health care system is going to look after them … (but) a lot of the care that you need at home and in recovery is not necessarily covered by the public system.” One of the problems, the report found, was that too many Canadians underestimate out-of-pocket health costs, especially when it comes to prescription drugs. Even though these are covered under company health plans, most people still have to pay a percentage of the cost themselves. Yet only 54 per cent of respondents said they expected to pay some amount out-of-pocket for their prescriptions. Over the past 12 months, Canadians spent an average of $1,354 on medical or health care products and additional services, Sun Life found. But few set aside money to cover health costs, with more than 81 per cent putting nothing aside. Among those who did, 43 per cent saved less than $1,000 in the past year and 44 per cent saved between $1,000 and $5,000. There are also too many people — one fifth — with no group insurance, personal insurance or health expense savings to help absorb the shock. Sun Life found that out of those impacted by a personal health crisis, 22 per cent turned to credit cards or personal lines of credit, another 22 per cent tapped into personal savings, 12 per cent borrowed from a loved one and five per cent were forced to either remortgage or sell their home. Dougherty said such choices added to people’s stress levels as they battle a major illness, with 77 per cent reporting they experienced excessive levels of stress, up five percentage points from the previous year, with finances as the most likely cause of excessive stress across all age brackets. While the 45 to 54 year-old group faced the most financial pressure, generation Y bore the larger stress burden, at 84 per cent. “You’ve got this immediate stress that’s playing out for the person, but once they’ve gotten through to the other side they’ve really derailed their retirement plans,” Dougherty said. “That’s all part of the stress picture as well.” Despite the high ratings for stress, the poll found Canadians were feeling good about their physical and emotional health overall. The index reached a record high of 65.9 this year, up marginally from last year, and 4.7 per cent higher than the low recorded in 2011. The Sun Life Canadian Health Index was based on the findings of an Ipsos Reid poll conducted between May 10 to 24, with a sample of 2,400 Canadians from 18 to 80 years of age interviewed online. The health events discussed in the survey included heart attack, stroke, cancer, coronary bypass, chronic diseases, degenerative disorders, terminal illnesses and serious accidents, with 28 per cent of Canadians saying they’ve experienced a serious health event or an accident in their lifetime.

Move Over, Round-up- USDA Approves 2nd Generation GMOs That Can Withstand Even Deadlier Herbicide
The USDA has just approved a new generation of GMOs for use with more deadly herbicides than the toxic glyphosate that currently taints farms across America.–You won’t hear about this on the mainstream though – it was all done very quietly in the hopes that no one would notice.–Bayer has developed a soybean that can withstand applications of the toxin isoxaflutole (IFT).– IFT is classified as a probable human carcinogen. — That’s right – they KNOW that it causes cancer and they created a plant with which they can use it anyway. A plant that is meant to feed us or feed our livestock. They’re going to douse the fields with it and allow it to leach into groundwater and contaminate soil.- The EPA knows this. Read the data sheet  about this – you won’t believe your eyes when you see the assessment of this chemical that will soon be sprayed all over fields across America.—Based upon a battery of acute toxicity studies, Balance Herbicide is classified as Toxicity Category III. Isoxaflutole demonstrates developmental toxicity and has been classified as a Group B2 carcinogen (probable human carcinogen). The data available at this time indicate that isoxaflutole is very phytotoxic. Isoxaflutole is persistent and mobile, and may leach and accumulate in groundwater and through surface water. (source )— They KNOW and they are allowing it anyway—Since glyphosate wasn’t ruining the world fast enough, Bayer decided to up the ante. Herbicide tolerant weeds have adapted to the pesticide and now to continue growing the GMO scourge, more toxic methods have to be used.—“Bayer’s new GE soybeans represent the next wave in agricultural biotechnology—crops that dramatically increase farmers’ use of and dependence on toxic herbicides,” said Bill Freese, science policy analyst at Center for Food Safety.—Dubbed FG72, these GE soybeans were developed by Bayer CropScience, the second-largest agrichemicals firm in the world.—The EPA has designated IFT as a “probable human carcinogen” based on animal tests in which it triggered liver and thyroid tumors in rats. IFT and its major breakdown product persist in surface waters, and despite its limited use, at present is frequently detected in tests. It is also toxic to aquatic organisms, wild plants and important crops (e.g. vegetables.). IFT is so toxic that three states—Wisconsin , Michigan  and Minnesota—rejected the Bayer-EPA label for this herbicide as insufficiently protective of human health, the environment and neighboring crops.– First generation GE crops, like Monsanto’s Roundup Ready (RR) varieties, are resistant to the herbicide glyphosate. Skyrocketing use of glyphosate with RR crops has wiped out biological diversity in our fields, for instance nearly wiping out milkweed and thereby contributing to a dramatic decline in Monarch butterfly populations . Glyphosate use has also triggered an epidemic of glyphosate-resistant weeds  that now infest roughly half of farmers’ fields .
“Bayer and other biotech companies are now poised to introduce a host of ‘next-generation’ GE crops resistant to more toxic herbicides as a false ‘solution’ to massive weed resistance,” said Freese. “But their effect will be to generate still more intractable weeds resistant to multiple herbicides.” (source )—-Also hopping on the second-generation GMO train are the ever-evil Monsanto, with new varieties of corn and cotton, as well as Dow, with new varieties of corn and soybeans.—The EPA and the USDA are supposed to be our safety net – they are supposed to be agencies of protection. Instead, they allow the big biotech companies to set their own rules and policies. There is absolutely no excuse for approving the use of a toxin that is a probable human carcinogen and yet the agencies established to protect us did it anyway.—We are already in the midst of a cancer epidemic in this country. Nearly half of the population will deal with cancer at some point in their lives.—-The President’s Cancer Panel , a three-person panel that reports to the U.S. president on the National Cancer Program calculated that 41% of Americans will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetimes. If you’re male, the chances are 1 in 2 that you will be diagnosed with some type of cancer, and women have a 1 in 3 chance of the dreaded diagnosis.—–A Global Cancer Statistics  for 2011 study names cancer as the #1 killer in the western world and #2 in developing countries. (source )–With this new USDA approval, I’d say the odds of getting cancer just got a whole lot higher.–No longer is just avoiding GMOs and eating organic enough. Our water supply is tainted. Our land is contaminated. Even the air we breathe is subject to pesticide drift. You need only to look at the petri dish that is the Hawaiin island of Molokai  to see what happens to a population that is subjected to these types of farming techniques and that occurred with the LESS TOXIC glyphosate. (“Less toxic glyphosate” are words I never thought I would type!)–Do you still think I’m overreacting about GMOs? Only through the development of genetically modified plants that can withstand these deadly poisons would the probable human carcinogens be able to be used.–IFT is a chemical weapon and the fields of America are the warzones.

Radio Wave Illness
The only known cure for Radio Wave Sickness is to stop being exposed to high frequencies.
There are many ways to approach the problem of stopping your exposure to high frequencies from electrical pollution. They range from the global to the case specific. Global solutions on the legislative front are discussed on the page entitled Legislation. This page discusses actions you can take on your own to minimize your exposure to high frequencies due to electrical pollution and then briefly touches on what can be done at the utility level. It then goes on to discuss steps to take to reduce your exposure to transmitted high frequencies. This has become increasingly important as the use of transmitter technology has exploded. The Solutions page should be printed and used almost like a checklist.
Click here for a printer friendly version
I have compiled this list of steps to take based on my own experience and that of others. The steps listed are ones that I know to be helpful. Most benefit no particular party. None benefit me financially. I do not make income off this website.
I realize that there are many products available promising quick fixes. There are no quick fixes. Reducing exposure to radiofrequency radiation from all sources is the only way to recover. Complete recovery takes time. Immediate improvements in energy, sleep quality, number of headaches, and other symptoms that come on quickly with exposure usually resolve quickly when exposure is eliminated. Other damage to nerves, muscles, mental function, digestion, immune system function and so on can take a year or more to repair itself and may never do so fully. The longer the exposure and the greater the damage, the longer it takes to repair. Thus, time is of the essence in reducing your exposure. The extreme sensitivity to radiofrequency radiation that most people with radiofrequency sickness experience can fade a bit if exposure can be virtually eliminated, but I have yet to see it go away. Those who are beginning to notice effects, but are not extremely sensitive yet, should immediately reduce their exposure as much as possible to avoid getting full-blown radiofrequency sickness.
Clean power enters the home at 60Hz. Electrical Pollution is 60 Hz electricity polluted with high frequency signals or “dirty” power flowing on the wires and through the earth. People exposed to excessively “dirty” power or wireless communication signals may develop Radio Wave Sickness.
high blood pressure, slow or fast heart rate, shortness of breath.
Respiratory: sinusitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma.
Dermatological: skin rash, itching, burning, facial flushing.
Ophthalmologic: pain or burning in the eyes, pressure in/behind the eyes, deteriorating vision, floaters, cataracts.
Others: digestive problems; abdominal pain; enlarged thyroid, testicular/ovarian pain; dryness of lips, tongue, mouth, eyes; great thirst; dehydration; nosebleeds; internal bleeding; altered sugar metabolism; immune abnormalities; redistribution of metals within the body; hair loss; pain in the teeth; deteriorating fillings; impaired sense of smell; ringing in the ears.
Please follow the initial steps in both the electrical pollution section and the transmitted radiofrequency radiation section in order since they are arranged from most to least important. Many of the later steps will not work if the first steps are not taken first. Good luck! If you have any questions please email me at: [email protected]
Steps to reduce your exposure to high frequencies at home from Electrical Pollution
Turn off or unplug all devices that repel or kill deer, rodents, mosquitos, or anything else by emitting frequencies. (We often test devices on animals to see if they are good for humans. The very effects these devices are designed for are telling you that they are not safe for people.)
Unplug or turn off any other devices that claim to generate frequencies. (People with radiofrequency sickness need less exposure not more. Individual response to individual frequencies varies widely and there is far more likelihood of a negative effect than a positive one, in spite of claims to the contrary. Artificial sources claiming to generate the earth’s magnetic field can also be dangerous and unnecessary- the earth’s field is still there. Read Dr. Neil Cherry’s paper “Cardiac Effects of Natural and Artificial EMR” for information about the profound effect the earth’s natural electromagnetic environment can have on cardiac function.)
Have an electrician remove dimmer switches and halogen lights. If you want mood lighting, use three-way lights. Unlike with dimmer switches, you will save electricity on the low settings.
Have an electrician bypass or remove variable speed frequency drives (VSFD) where possible. Without appropriate filters they are very bad sources of high frequencies. If you have a VSFD on your motors in your heating and/or cooling system, it can easily be bypassed by the service person. The motor would then just run at high speed. Little efficiency is lost when this is done on a heating or cooling system. Energy efficient washing machines often have variable speed motors and thus require at least one filter.
Touch lamps, plasma TVs, most compact fluorescent bulbs, fluorescent lights with electronic ballasts, some full-spectrum lights, and wireless plug-in telephone jacks are very bad sources of high frequencies and are best removed.
Remove flashers from decorative lighting. Each on or off event results in a high frequency transient.
Check if you have the new or old style microwave. The old style turned the microwave signal on and off in order to reduce the power. The new style essentially has a dimmer switch on the microwave beam turning the power down. It causes tremendously dirty power. If you have a new style microwave, getting rid of it is the best solution. Next best is to get a number of filters to be used right at the microwave and in outlets on that circuit, so the high frequencies do not get onto the wiring all over the house. (Microwaves often leak microwave radiation when operating and can pose a hazard at large distances for these reasons, even if they do not cause overly “dirty” power.)
Only use laptops on battery. Recharge them when you are not around. They generate a large amount of “dirty” power and the transformer on the charging cord generates a very large field. Also use an external wired keyboard and mouse to reduce you exposure to the high frequencies from the processor. (See section on transmitters since most computers come with them nowadays.)
Eliminate exposure to transmitted radiofrequencies. See “Non-Grid Sources of Exposure to High Frequencies” below.
Use a Microsurge Meter to check for other polluting or malfunctioning electrical devices. (While checking readings, keep in mind that readings which change quickly are worse than steady readings. The faster and greater the change, the worse they are.)Be sure to check high speed internet routers. (A handful of malfunctioning routers have been found that caused incredibly bad electrical pollution levels.)
Be sure to check electronics. Some transformers converting AC power to DC power (the boxes that plug into the wall) are poorly designed and highly polluting. They will pollute as long as they are plugged in and the outlet is on.
If one or more consumer products are responsible for making you ill, please report them to the Consumer Product Safety Commission at 1-800-638-2772 or a href=”http://www.cpsc.gov”>http://www.cpsc.gov. Be prepared with the product name, model and/or serial number, and the symptoms it causes. These dangerous consumer products will not be either removed from shelves or re-engineered unless complaints are filed.
Eliminate sources of arcing (a source of very high frequencies):Have an electrician inspect for and eliminate loose or poor connections;
Have the utility or a professional trim branches bumping or touching overhead wires (Alliant Energy even states in their leaflet entitled “Energy Basics: Power Surges” that “An external power surge, stemming from outside your home, is most commonly caused by a tree limb touching a power line…”);
Have your electrician replace poorly made switches, fixtures, and appliances.
Have your utility replace split-bolt connectors with crimp-on connectors, if they have split-bolt connectors on your line. (If you have split-bolt connectors on line you own, you should have an electrician replace those as well.) Utilities have not installed split-bolt connectors in quite awhile because they have a tendency to loosen up and arc as time passes. Even crimp-on connectors in high stress areas may need periodic re-crimping.
Have your electrician make sure the wire between the meter and your electrical box is large enough and in good shape. If it is too small, it is a bottleneck for high frequencies and a fire hazard.
Plug in high frequency filters. (Such as those available from Stetzer Electric. Stetzer Electric can be reached by phone at (608) 989-2571 or at their website http://www.stetzerelectric.com/. Questions can be directed to [email protected]).
Approximately 20 Graham/Stetzer filters are needed for the average house. They should be plugged in near sources of high frequencies, as well as, frequently used electrical appliances. (Some devices generate pollution that the capacitor will lower at the receptical, but will not lower at the device. This is a particular concern when people are close to the device, as they are with hairdryers, sewing machines, and low voltage halogen desk and reading lamps.) A couple should be plugged into outlets installed off of both A and B phases next to the main service box. (Have your electrician use properly rated stranded wire to wire the outlets for maximum filter effectiveness.) The rest should be scattered throughout the house. If improvement occurs only slowly, more filters may be necessary. If way too few are installed initially, no difference may be observed, so it is very important to put in sufficient quantity from the start.
For specific directions on installation which will help you maximize the filtering effect, as well as help you get a good idea of how many you will need, go to http://www.stetzerelectric.com/filter/
See the picture Dr. Graham provided of the response of electrical pollution to a 20 mF capacitor, which was documented with a spectrum analyzer.
Have a plumber install a PVC pipe or a commercially available dielectric union between the house pipes and the water/sewer system, which has become an alternate return path for electricity.
Have your heating or gas technician install a commercially available dielectric union just after the gas pipes enter your home to electrically separate the gas tank or the system of natural gas pipes from the gas pipes inside your home, often these pipes have become an alternate path for electricity or radiofrequencies.
Have the phone company install an Radio Frequency (RF) Filter on your phone line. The phone line can conduct the electric utilities ground currents, including high frequencies, since they are both grounded to the same earth.
Some people have found installing shielded phone wire to be helpful.
Make sure new electronics come with appropriate harmonic noise filters already installed.
A caution on old wiring, particularly knob and tube and cloth insulated wiring: This wiring was designed long before modern electronic loads, non-linear loads, were even conceived of. It is not, therefore, designed to be used by them. The high frequencies generated by them can cause overheating, resulting in a fire hazard. (Blown-in insulation touching knob and tube wiring is inherently a fire hazard.) It is important to have an electrician check that the fuses/circuit breakers on old wiring are the appropriate size. People have been known to tire of constantly tripping fuses/breakers and replace them with larger ones instead of re-distributing loads or re-wiring. This is a fire hazard and should be corrected.
Convince your neighbors to do the same.
Other mitigation measures:
Walls do not stop electromagnetic fields. Be aware of this when arranging furniture. Sources of electromagnetic fields (EMF) to be aware of as you place your furniture include transformers for electronic gadgets (the box at the end of the cord), televisions, computers, electric clocks (don’t put them right next to the head of your bed), fluorescent lights, and your electrical service panel and electrical meter, as well as wires feeding them. You will also want to be aware of where major wire bundles run in the walls of your house and keep the time you spend near them to a minimum. Be aware that televisions and computer screens with cathode ray tubes (CRT) frequently have electromagnetic fields around the sides and back that are as high, or higher, than those in the front. Electric blankets and heating pads should also be avoided, particularly old models. Any electric device will have an electromagnetic field. Both Warning: The Electricity Around You May Be Hazardous to Your Health. How to protect yourself from electromagnetic fields by Ellen Sugarman and Crosscurrents by Robert O. Becker, M.D. have sections discussing risks posed by specific household appliances. Crosscurrents by Robert O. Becker, M.D. also discusses mechanism of action and sundry other interesting items that relate to electromagnetic fields and health. I suggest that you read one of them or one of the other references found on the reference sheet in the Further Info section for a more in depth discussion.
The frequencies on electrical wiring are now high enough that they radiate. This can be measured using a Multidetector II Plus/Profi meter. Lamps and other ungrounded items radiate the worst. Putting a cord with a grounded plug on helps. Lamps and items with the least amount of metal seem to radiate least. Metal shades and reflectors seem to direct and concentrate the radiation.
Use rubber gloves when washing dishes or working in the sink. Also stand on a non-conductive mat. Both increase the resistance of the path through your body.
For computers, put aluminum flashing on desktop and connect it to aluminum flashing under chair with a width of aluminum flashing. If there are different pieces, they need to have a good connection such as aluminum rivets between them. The aluminum flashing can be under a plastic mat like ones used to protect the floor from desk chairs. This creates a path to the floor for the contact current to take that is lower resistance than your body. (See also the transmitter section since most computers come with transmitters nowadays.)
Wear conductive socks or copper insoles (at least 2″ wide by 16/1000″ thick) connected with stranded wire (at least a single 10 gauge wire or 16 gauge lamp cord with both wires connected in parallel). www.lessemf.com sells the socks. Electricity travels through the more conductive pathway this provides, instead of through your body from one foot to the other.
Shut off non-essential circuits especially while sleeping. This should help you sleep and feel better. (You will get the best results if all circuits in your bedroom or the room you are in are off, including circuits in the walls and floors that may service other rooms. If this is not possible for whatever reason, being aware of where the live wires are and keeping your distance is also effective.)
Use a digital multimeter or oscilloscope with the red and black leads each clipped onto a different square of aluminum foil to quantify whether shutting off particular circuits helps reduce your exposure in your favorite areas. For example, in bed place one foil where your head would be and the other where your lower extremities would be. Read the voltage level that results, then carefully turn off circuits and see what readings result. Another example would be placing one aluminum square on the back of a favorite chair and the other on the bottom, not touching each other. You can then repeat the readings as above.
Sleep on a wood-framed bed.
Sleep on a mattress without springs e.g. futon with no box springs.Conductive cloth is available that can be put under the mattress pad to reduce the amount of current the bedsprings induce into your body. It should be as wide as a fitted sheet and touch the floor at the head end of the bed.
Sleeping in a Faraday cage may also be helpful. There are conductive cloth versions available. Some people have found them to be helpful. Some people have found that it makes the problem worse. If you get one, get it at a place with a good return policy. I would take all the other steps first.
After reducing your exposure to radiofrequencies using the others steps on this page, consider removing metal fillings if appropriate. More information about the interaction between fillings and radiofrequency radiation can be found at http://www.flcv.com/EMFeff.html. The Dental Amalgam Mercury Fillings website at http://www.amalgam.org was recommended to me as a good resource to start with. This is not a topic with which I have any experience, but I have heard from others who have found removing amalgam fillings to be very helpful.
Other potential grid-related sources of exposure to high frequencies:
Equipment running at cell towers and strobing lights that are installed without an RF Choke. Information about eliminating this cause of electrical pollution
Alternative energy systems installed without filters to clean up the waveform the inverter generates. Consult a power quality specialist.
Work or school. A specialist should evaluate the power quality and recommend appropriate remediation measures. If that is not a possibility, the portable high frequency filters may be able to provide some relief. (I carry eight and a meter with me whenever I leave the house. I find plugging them in at meetings, friends homes, etc. to be a tremendous help.)
New watt-hour meters (your electrical rate meter) may include modern digital circuitry which generates pollution right at the meter. This may be more likely to happen if the meter is designed to be read remotely. If you notice a change in your health after the meter has been changed, check the meter with an AM radio (as described in “Mitigation of Electrical Pollution in the Home”). Please also see the Transmitting Utility Meter Page and the transmitter section on this page for more information about transmitting utility meters and what can be done about them.
What can your utilities do locally to reduce your exposure to “dirty” power?
First and most important: enforce the section of the IEEE 519-1992 that specifies allowable distortion of current and voltage on return current. In other words, the largest polluters will have to clean up their power to certain specifications before returning it to the primary neutral. The utilities would still have to “clean” up after the individual polluters who already meet the specifications, but it would significantly reduce the overloading of the system.
Make sure that wires at your house and your neighbor’s house are connected with crimp-on connectors instead of split-bolt connectors. Split-bolt connectors can be a source of arcing and, therefore, high frequencies.
Make sure that tree branches are trimmed so they are not touching the wires. Branches rubbing or bumping the wires can cause arcing. (With a little care trees can actually be trimmed away from wires without being mutilated.) Bare wires are more likely to arc, causing high frequencies, than insulated wires.
Install a primary neutral wire that is 225% the size of the phase wires all the way to the substation and/or filters on the utility side to filter the high frequencies.
Install transformers with filters built in.
Make sure that the wires are in good shape. In some areas the wires have overheated so much from being overloaded with high frequencies that the insulation is hanging off in shreds.
The Solution: Both the Electrical Power Research Institute (EPRI) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) have identified remedies for “dirty” power and electrical ground currents.
Non-Grid Sources of Exposure to High Frequencies
Spark plugs are a source of exposure to high frequencies in gas cars. The high frequencies from the arcing transmit directly and travel on the car wiring. The firing of the spark plugs can be heard on a properly tuned AM radio. Filters used by audiophiles are helpful for filtering them off. We have a stripped down model truck and disconnected the unnecessary wires. (The wires had been run and connected for all the options we did not get.) We also got a diesel for our primary vehicle. Diesels do not have spark plugs.
Speakers generate high frequency electromagnetic fields. The high frequency electromagnetic fields are generated by the electromagnet used to move a diapham that creates the sound waves we enjoy listening to. Speakers are usually only a problem when close by, as in vehicles.
Computer monitors or TVs that have cathode ray tubes emit ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, primarily toward the front of the screen. Maintaining sufficient distance and being off to the side can help. I find I have trouble getting meaningful work done on a computer with a CRT monitor because of the forced close proximity. I have switched to a flat screen (LCD) and find I have no trouble unless the power quality is really bad.
Transmitted radiofrequency radiation (wireless technology)
Important information about transmitters: Safety standards in the United States are based on tissue heating. The strength of signal required to cause tissue heating was calculated and then a safety factor of 100 was taken. No account was taken for other more subtle biological effects of exposure to high frequencies. Thus, transmitters in the United States (I believe Canada is the same.) transmit at strengths far higher than permitted in countries where the health effects (other than tissue heating) of high frequencies are used as the basis for regulation of signal strength. Please read this letter from the Radiation Protection Division of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding the limitations of the FCC standards. The Salzburg Standards recommend no more the 1 microwatts per meter squared. The Russians recommend no more than 10 microwatts per meter squared. The U.S. allows 1,000 microwatts per meter squared. (Cell phones taking a call have been measured transmitting over 2,000 microwatts per meter squared at 10 feet away.)
Our Volkswagon Jetta handbook actually warns against cellphone use in the car due to the potential for the signal to fry the microprocessor. If the signal has the potential to damage electronics during normal usage, what does it do to sensitive biological systems? Incidentally, the phone does ramp up the signal if it is not getting through to the tower enough and due to the blocking effect of the metal in the vehicle, this often happens in motor vehicles. This results in a greater exposure for you and others when a cellphone is used in a vehicle.
Antennas transmit in all directions from the antenna. This results in substantial exposure to yourself and others around you (kind of like second hand cigarette smoke) each time you use the phone. There are gadgets being sold that are supposed to shield you or direct the signal. An informal test of one of the signal directors showed it to be useless. Not only that but at 10 feet the signal from the phone was still overloading the meter that read up to 2000 SAR, the highest the phone should output when read directly at the phone. Thus, everyone in the room was exposed to a signal that was stronger than deemed safe. Because people using these “protectors” use their wireless technology more than they otherwise would without real additional protection, these things are dangerous.
I think it worthwhile noting that although it is a good idea to use a non-transmitting air-tube headset with your phone to reduce the risk of brain cancer, depending on where the phone is set or worn while doing so, it may increase the risk of cancer in other parts of the body due to microwave exposure. The industry often claims that the phones could not possibly cause brain tumors because most of the signal bounces off of your skull. Your abdomen has no such shield, or at least mine doesn’t. Thus, wearing or carrying a phone, with the battery installed, on a belt, in a pocket, or in a purse is likely to result in higher cancer risk in the exposed areas. No one is tracking these cancers related to cellphone use or wireless technology use of any kind.
Some cellphones transmit more than others. Smart phones transmit almost continuously in order to update whatever information they have been asked to keep on top of. The more data the more power dense the signal is likely to be. Almost all newer cell phones continuously transmit a GPS signal even when off. In other words, they always transmit a microwave signal. This is a “safety” feature so that you can always be located. However, continuous exposure to microwaves is unsafe. (As an aside, I find it interesting that people are willing to pay to carry around a device that tracks their every movement, but if the government asked them to do so at no charge there would, quite rightly, be an uproar.) According to a news story by NPR the data is being used to track people and their movements in many different ways. Here is a link to a similar story in Technology Review titled Mobile Data: A Gold Mine for Telcos.
Finally, exposure to high frequencies, including from cellphones, decreases melatonin secretion. Melatonin is a hormone that is essential for a good night sleep. It also has antioxidant and cancer fighting properties. Sleeping with a cellphone or other transmitter that is not turned off is therefore not conducive to getting the best night of sleep and has the potential for further health consequences.

The Natural Healing Power Of Oak Trees And Acorns
Written by: Patricia Bratianu RN PhD RH-AHG Natural Health October 7, 2013 3 Comments
America and the Northern Hemisphere are home to many varieties of oaks. Oaks have been used for ceremony, food, medicine and building for as long as humans have been around. In many traditions, the oak is revered as a sacred tree.
Oaks were used as medicine and food for millennia. Many Native American groups used oak to treat bleeding, tumors, swelling and dysentery. European herbalists used oak as a diuretic and as an antidote to poison. Snuff made from powdered root was used to treat tuberculosis. The leaves have been employed to promote wound healing. Oak has been used as a Quinine substitute in the treatment of fevers.—Tannins provide many of the healing properties of oak. Tannins bind with proteins in tissues, making a barrier resistant to bacterial invasion. Tannins strengthen tissues and blood vessels. They reduce inflammation and irritation, especially of skin and mucus membranes.—Modern scientific research confirms that oak possesses the following healing properties: astringent, fever reducing, tonic, antiseptic, anti-viral, anti-tumor, and anti-inflammatory actions. In addition, oak has been used to get rid of worms and other parasites.—–The plant parts used for healing include the inner bark, leaves and acorns.–Oak is excellent for controlling loose stools. Either a tincture (alcohol extract) or decoction (boiled tea) of root bark is effective. Decoctions are used to promote healing of bleeding gums when used as a mouthwash. Finely powdered dried inner bark has been used to control nosebleeds. Oak is said to relieve poor digestion. It has been used to treat ulcers internally and externally. Finely powdered dried inner bark can be sprinkled on external ulcers to soothe, reduce swelling, prevent infection and strengthen tissue. A decoction or tincture can be used to heal internal ulcers. Compresses made from a root bark decoction soothe and shrink hemorrhoids, varicose veins and bruises. A bark decoction can be used as a gargle to relieve a sore throat. Skin problems such as rashes, irritation and swelling may be relieved with the application of poultices or compresses made from the root bark or leaves. Oak has been used in the treatment of cholera and gonorrhea. Decoctions have been used as douches to treat vaginal infections—Leaves may be used fresh for first aid in the field. They can be softened by immersing them in boiling water or steaming until limp. If boiling water is not available, the leaves may be softened by crushing them. Apply the leaves topically to the affected area as an antiseptic, soothing poultice to reduce swelling, skin irritation or bleeding.—Acorns are soaked to remove tannins prior to using the acorn meat for food. The tannin rich soaking water has antiseptic and anti-viral properties. It may be used as a wash to relieve skin irritations from rashes, minor burns and poison ivy.
To prepare a decoction of oak, use 1 teaspoon of dried inner bark per cup of water. Simmer the herb and water, covered, for 20 minutes. Strain the herb from the liquid before using the decoction. If using internally, drink 1 cupful of the decoction 3 times daily. However if the decoction is being used to relieve loose stools, drink one-fourth cup after each loose stool.—-If preparing a tincture, use a spirit that contains 60 percent alcohol. Herbalists recommend that 1-2 milliliters may be consumed three times daily.—–Fresh leaves may be gathered for first aid as needed. The inner bark is the most useful medicinal part of the oak. It is bitter and astringent in taste. The inner bark is best gathered in spring from roots protruding through the ground. Dry it and store the bark in a cool dark place. Acorns are gathered in the fall.—Oak bark combines well with chamomile for soothing the digestive system. Do not use oak for people who suffer from constipation. Oak is not recommended for large open wounds or for treatment of weeping eczema.—Native Americans relied extensively on acorns for food. Years ago, sacks or baskets of acorns were placed in streams to leach the bitter tannins from them.–One large oak tree can produce 1,000 pounds of acorns in a year. Acorns are nutrient dense foods. They are lower in fat and sugars then many other nuts. Acorns provide about 125 calories per ounce. They are rich in polyunsaturated fats, vitamin B6, copper, manganese and potassium.—Acorns vary in flavor from not bitter to too bitter to eat. Acorns that are produced in one year tend to have a mild flavor while the ones that are only produced every two years are bitter. Oaks that have smooth oval shaped leaves have tastier acorns than those from trees that have pointy lobed shapes. Species that produce acorns with large caps generally yield bitter acorns. Oaks yielding the best tasting acorns include: white oak, live oak and swamp chestnut oaks. Red oaks, turkey oaks and laurel oaks produce bitter acorns. Cream colored acorn meats taste best. Acorns with yellow or orange meat are bitter. Individual trees of the same species produce acorns with differing levels of palatability.—-Acorns for food use need to be gathered in the fall to avoid bacterial and insect contamination. Throw away any with insect holes in them.—All acorns require leaching in order to remove the bitter taste of tannins. Some need just a couple of changes of water while others require several. Acorns can be leached by either of two methods.
Method One —–Cover the unshelled acorns with cold water. Throw away any that float. As the water turns brown, change it repeatedly. This can take days or even weeks. Using the cold water method is beneficial if you intend to use the acorns as a thickener.
Method Two——-Bring a large pot of water to a full boil. Pour in acorns. Throw away the ones that float. As the water turns brown, heat a second large pot of water to boiling. Strain the acorns from the first pot. Place in the second pot. Keep repeating until the acorns are no longer bitter.
Baked or Heat Method
To dry leached acorns, fry them in an un-oiled frying pan, stirring frequently, or place them in a 150-200 degree oven for about 20 minutes. They can also be spread on a screen in a single layer to air dry for several weeks.—–Store the acorns in a sealed container. They will keep for about 6 months. When you are ready to use the acorns, crack them open with a nut cracker. Acorns stay fresher if shells are not removed until you are ready to use them.
To make acorn flour, place the shelled acorns in a blender and process until fine. Store the flour in a cool dark place. It keeps well in the freezer. Use acorn flour as a nutritious substitute for flour. In baked goods; do not substitute more than one fourth to one half of the regular flour in a recipe with acorn flour. The acorns can be kept in larger pieces and used like any other nut.
Water extract of Cinnamomum cassia Blume inhibited human respiratory syncytial virus by preventing viral attachment, internalization, and syncytium formation.
J Ethnopharmacol. 2013 May 20;147(2):321-6
Authors: Yeh CF, Chang JS, Wang KC, Shieh DE, Chiang LC
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE: is a popular traditional Chinese herbal medicine that has Cinnamomum cassia Blume been used to manage respiratory tract disease, including common cold and chronic bronchitis for thousand years. Human respiratory syncytial virus (HRSV) is one of the leading causes of severe lower respiratory tract illness worldwide. No effective therapeutic modality against HRSV infection has been proved. It is unknown whether Cinnamomum cassia is effective against HRSV.
AIM OF THE STUDY: This study tested the hypothesis that Cinnamomum cassia can effectively decrease HRSV-induced plaque formation and syncytium formation in respiratory mucosal cell lines.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Antiviral activity of the hot water extract of Cinnamomum cassia against HRSV was tested by plaque reduction assay in both human upper (HEp-2) and low (A549) respiratory tract cell lines. Its ability to inhibit the synthesis of viral fusion (F) protein was examined by Western blot assay.
RESULTS: Cinnamomum cassia dose-dependently inhibited HRSV-induced plaque formation in both HEp-2 and A549 cell lines (p<0.0001). Cinnamomum cassia was more effective when given before viral infection (p<0.0001) mainly by inhibition of viral attachment (p<0.0001) and internalization (p<0.0001). Cinnamomum cassia could inhibit F protein production and syncytium formation to interfere with HRSV spreading.
CONCLUSIONS: Cinnamomum cassia prevented airway epithelia from HRSV infection through inhibiting viral attachment, internalization and syncytium formation. Cinnamomum cassia could be a candidate to develop therapeutic modalities to manage HRSV infection in the future.—PMID: 23518419 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE]
