"The current 
international public safety limits for EMFs do not appear to be sufficiently protective of public health at all, 
based on the studies of immune function."

  • "It can be seen from the above that 10 different well-documented microwave EMF effects canbe easily explained as being a consequence of EMF VGCC activation: oxidative stress, elevated single and double strand breaks in DNA, therapeutic responses to such EMFs, breakdown of the blood-brain barrier, cancer, melatonin loss, sleep dysfunction, male infertility and female infertility."

  • 93 out of 100 currently available peer-reviewed studies dealing with oxidative effects of low-intensity RFR, confirmed that RFR induces oxidative effects in biological systems.
  • Analysis of the currently available peer-reviewed scientific literature reveals molecular effects induced by low-intensity RFR in living cells; this includes significant activation of key pathways generating reactive oxygen species (ROS), activation of peroxidation, oxidative damage of DNA and changes in the activity of antioxidant enzymes.
  •  A wide pathogenic potential of the induced ROS and their involvement in cell signaling pathways explains a range of biological/health effects of low-intensity RFR, which include both cancer and non-cancer pathologies. 
  • The oxidative stress induced by RFR exposure should be recognized as one of the primary mechanisms of the biological activity of this kind of radiation.

  • Significant increase in all salivary oxidative stress indices were seen in the mobile phone users.  Salivary flow, total protein, albumin, and amylase activity were decreased in mobile phone users.  “These observations lead to the hypothesis that the use of mobile phones may cause oxidative stress and modify salivary function.”

Oxidative changes and apoptosis induced by 1800-MHz electromagnetic radiation in NIH/3T3 cells.Electromagn Biol Med. 2014 Mar 25.

  • Our results showed a significant increase in intracellular ROS levels after EMR exposure. The percentage of late-apoptotic cells in the EMR-exposed group was significantly higher than that in the sham-exposed groups (p < 0.05).  These results indicate that an 1800-MHz EMR enhances ROS formation and promotes apoptosis in NIH/3T3 cells.

  • In this study, we analyzed cellular stress levels in rat thymus after exposure of the rats to a 2.45 GHz radio frequency using an experimental diathermic model in a GTEM chamber.
  • This study describes for the first time changes in the morphology, levels of cellular stress proteins Hsp90 and 70 and glucocorticoid receptors in the rat thymus exposed to a maximum interaction of 2.45 GHz radio frequency to the left leg of the animal in a GTEM chamber.
  • Significance  Our results indicate that non-ionizing sub-thermal radiation causes changes in the endothelial permeability and vascularization of the thymus, and is a tissue-modulating agent for Hsp90 and GR.
  • The increase of glucocorticoid receptors in the cortical thymocytes indicates that radiation constitutes a stimulus for immune response.

  • “The whole-body 1800 MHz GSM-like RF radiation exposure may lead to oxidative destruction as being indicators of subsequent reactions that occur to form oxygen toxicity in tissues”

  • Increases of cortisol and a higher concentration of alpha-amylase were detected in subjects under various EMF exposure scenarios.  RF-EMF in considerably lower field densities than ICNIRP-guidelines may influence certain psychobiological stress markers.

  • A “strong non-thermal character of biological effects of RFR has been documented” and “it is clear that the substantial overproduction of ROS in living cells under low intensity RFR exposure could cause a broad spectrum of health disorders and diseases, including cancer in humans.  Undoubtedly, this calls for the further intensive research in the area, as well as to a precautionary approach in routine usage of wireless devices.”

Research shows that WiFi leads to stress on the body. Scientists have found that the body reacts to wireless exposure by showing signs of increased oxidative stress.

Oxidative stress can increase our risk of  neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease, gene mutations and cancers, heart disorders, and inflammatory diseases.  

Research has also shown autoimmune responses, blood serum changes, alterations of immune cells, impaired immune function and the presence of biological markers for inflammation after wireless exposure.

WiFi = Stress on the Immune System
