The gathering of the forces of light

UFOs and the World Teacher's emergence

From The Emergence.org

For more than 30 years, author Benjamin Creme has been telling the world about the most hopeful message of our time: that at this critical crossroads in human history, a group of enlightened teachers — led by Maitreya, the World Teacher — are emerging from their remote retreats to inspire humanity to live together in unity and cooperation.

With Maitreya’s first interviews on US television, his open mission has begun — heralded by brilliant “star-like luminaries”, which are actually UFOs, appearing in the sky for all to see.

When we banish war forever, that technology will be ours.

Maitreya will explain that we have a choice: continuing on our divisive path toward destruction, or sharing the world’s resources more equitably and creating an era of cooperation, justice and peace.

With the help of the gathering Forces of Light – Maitreya, his group of enlightened teachers, and the Space Brothers – humanity is on the verge of a brilliant new civilization.

Congressmen Warn Obama on UN Arms Treaty

From the Trenches

Posted on July 4, 2012 by Admin

Newsmax  More than 130 congressmen, led by Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Pa., signed a letter sent to President Barack Obama Monday expressing their opposition to a U.N. arms trade treaty if it violates U.S. gun owner rights and sovereignty.

The United Nations is starting a month-long negotiation for a long-delayed treaty oninternational standards for importing and exporting conventional weapons.

Proponents say the treaty will simply replicate U.S. standards in much of the rest of the world without affecting domestic gun sales, The Hill reports. But gun rights activities are concerned.

“The UN’s actions to date indicate that the ATT [United Nations Arms Trade Treaty] is likely to pose significant threats to our national security, foreign policy, and economic interests as well as our constitutional rights,” the letter states. “The U.S. must establish firm red lines for the ATT and state unequivocally that it will oppose the ATT if it infringes on our rights or threatens our ability to defend our interests.”

The letter includes specific demands — that the treaty leave out small arms andammunition and recognize an individual’s right to self-defense.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) applauded the letter. “Any international ATT that in any way, shape or form affects the constitutional rights of American gun owners is unacceptable,” Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, said in a statement. “International organizations and foreign governments do not have the right to restrict the fundamental freedoms handed down to us from our Founding Fathers.”

A glimpse of how ‘Democracy’ works in America …

FLORIDA DEMS: ‘FOLLOW THE LINE ON ISRAEL OR GET IN LINE TO COLLECT UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE’

=======================================================

{XANIEL’S NOTE : If I were Evelyn Garcia, I would have told them all to go to hell ! Every person has a right to their beliefs,their truths.

Just because she gave her honest opinion on Israel she is forced to resign?? BECAUSE OF ISRAEL???

And her opinions were through her (what should have been private) email,  

so it wasn’t like she was shouting all this publicly, (although I have NO PROBLEM doing it !), this woman was betrayed.

It doesn’t seem to matter which party you stand with, Demicrook or Republicwhore,

they both have their heads so far up the Israeli Leaders asses that they’ve had to learn to breath through their toes.

We elected these…..( hahahah…We…??),

they were elected (most of them through voter fraud, which is becoming more fact than speculation by the day),

to represent the interests of the American people, not that of these Zionist Israeli criminals and murders.

We need to take care of our Country first and then if there is any money left over, throw some to Israel if you want.

(I PERSONALLY DON’T ! I want all the taxpayer money back that’s been given to these ingrates already.

With NO SIGN of them ever wanting to pay us back. And yet they murder our people, such as on the USS Liberty and 9-11,

as two quick examples. And they did it with the help and blessing of our treasonous U.S. Leadership.)

Israel can burn in hell before I would lift a finger to help them over our own people, who need it far worse then the Zionist do!

But being a part of the two Party System as it exists in this Country,

means you must be on board with Israel and do all it’s evil bidding while pissing all over the U.S. Citizens in the process.

This is why I could never be a Demicrook or Republicwhore.

I chose instead to be  a part of a Third and unknown Party : ‘ The Constitutional Party ‘

Where we take care of our Country and all It’s citizens first and foremost.

Where we do away with wars and remove all overseas bases and bring them home.

Where we DO NOT police the World , as it is not our place to do so.

Our moto : ‘ Live and Let Live !’

If you come messing with America that’s one thing, but if you leave us alone, we’ll leave you alone.

That is what being a member of the Constitutional Party is all about !

It’s time to fire all the crooks and whores of the other two Parties and start fresh with this third and better Party.

Give it some thought and then let’s take action !!} ~~ Xaniel777

County Democratic official Garcia resigns after emails critical of Israel surface

By John Lantigua

Evelyn Garcia, a member of the Democratic National Committee from Palm Beach County, resigned the post Monday after emails surfaced in which she sharply criticized Israel’s treatment of Palestinians.

Garcia, a candidate for the State House of Representatives from District 88, which includes parts of West Palm Beach and Riviera Beach, said she would continue to campaign for that seat.

She apologized for her remarks and called them “ugly” and “hurtful.”

The emails were provided anonymously to local Democratic Party leaders late last week, those leaders said.

In each case, the recipient’s name was blacked out.

Some of them appear to have been written to a South Florida Congressional aide.

“The continued Israeli occupation of Palestine is ugly on moral, ethical, religious and legal grounds,” Garcia said in an email dated July 26, 2011. “Palestinians had nothing to do with the holocaust and it is time that this guilt trip was taken off their backs…. And I deeply resent U.S. taxpayer funds being used to continue Israeli aggression.”

In that same email, Garcia accused Israel of confiscating land and building illegal settlements in occupied territories, as well as “incursions that kill people, destroy civilian homes and infrastructure all over; mass concentration prison camps, etc.”

In A May 24, 2011 message, Garcia wrote: “Slavery was ended, apartheid was ended and so this occupation must end.”

County Democratic Party Chairman Mark Alan Siegel accepted Garcia’s resignation Monday afternoon.

He called the emails “grossly inappropriate.”( Xaniel’s Note : Bullsh@t, The email were very APPROPRIATE and that Israeli Lackey knows it!)~~ Xaniel777

“I was shocked by her choice of words,” Siegel said.( Xaniel’s Note : SHOCKED that she would tell the truth??)~~Xaniel777

He said he was surprised because Garcia “had never shown any animus toward Jews she encountered in her work for the party. This wasn’t the Evelyn we knew,” he said.( Xaniel’s Note : This isn’t about Jews. It’s about Zionism and it’s strangle hold on Israel and the U.S.)~~~Xaniel777

County Commissioner Burt Aaronson was angered by the emails.

“She can say what she wants but not as an executive of the Democratic Party,” Aaronson said. “The party, locally, statewide and nationally, supports the state of Israel. I am personally offended as a Jew, as a Democrat and as a supporter of the state of Israel. The Democratic Party is better off without her.”

( Xaniel’s Note : Who gives a rat’s ass what your offended of,  you traitor to the U.S.A. Bastard!!

And just the fact that you needed to tell everyone that you are a Jew is an insult to Jews everywhere on this matter.

Because you don’t speak for all the Jews, you Racist Pig!)~~Xaniel777

Garcia, a Haitian-American, was elected to the Democratic National Committee in 2008, after serving as a delegate to the party’s national convention in Denver earlier that year.

She issued a resignation statement Friday afternoon, saying that’s she wrote it “with great sadness and a heavy heart.”

She said the private emails had been released “by someone I believed was my friend.”

“In passionately advocating my position supporting the rights of people I felt were being harmed, I used language that I now regret,” she wrote. “The gist of the conversation had to do with my concern for innocent people being oppressed, but such support for the oppressed does not diminish my support for the good people of Israel.”

( Xaniel’s Note :  First of all, F@ck Israel!  

Second, as far as I’m concerned, she should never have backed off her position of telling the truth.

And since the Demicrooks decided to go open and public with this, she should have retaliated by making this a VERY open and public debate.

( I KNOW I WOULD HAVE !

This would have been a perfect opportunity for me to help wake up the world about the U.S. and Zionist Israeli Leadership as being the threat and the problem to World Peace.

NO OPPORTUNITY SQUANDERED !! )

And in the process expose even more of ‘ The Crimes Against Humanity ‘ that Israel Leaders are heavily guilty of !

Just like almost all of our U.S. Leaders are.)~~Xaniel777

In a separate statement emailed later Friday to The Palm Beach Post, Garcia said: “My comments were not only inappropriate and hurtful, they are exactly the kind of ugly rhetoric that is not conducive to the overall atmosphere needed to create a prosperous peace and security for both parties. I apologize to anyone I offended and to my friends in the Democratic Party, in particular, members of the Jewish faith whom I have worked with for years.

“My continued presence would merely serve as a distraction to the good work of Democrats and it is for this reason I have submitted my resignation,” she wrote.

Garcia is up against three other Democrats – Charles Bantel, Bobby Powell and Nikasha Wells — for the District 88 House seat.

The GOP has no candidate in the race, so the winner of the primary will win the seat.

All registered voters can vote in that primary Aug. 14.

Do Israelis Teach Their Children To Hate?

From Aletho News

                     ΑΛΗΘΩΣ

By Ali Hocine Dimerdji | CEASEFIRE | June 19, 2012

One of the most common questions anyone who has ever written about Palestine or engaged in debate around the Palestinian-Israeli conflict would regularly face is “Why do they [Palestinians] teach their children to hate?”

This question is a favoured rhetorical tool of the pro-Israel propagandists because it neatly encapsulates a host of Orientalist and racist implications while never actually making them explicit.

By asking this question one is implying that Palestinians do not love their children the way every other culture loves theirs.

The question dehumanises Palestinians and casts them as other and alien, in effect blaming them for their own oppression.

Rafeef Ziadeh tackles and deconstructs that very question, while constructing an alternative more robust narrative in her spoken word piece ““We Teach Life, Sir””, culminating in the phrase “We Palestinians wake up every morning to teach the rest of the world life, sir”.

The question is largely based on misleading, and since proved false, reports by Israeli government sources and the Center for Monitoring the Impact of Peace (CMIP).

The Electronic Intifada described this group in an article entitled The Myth of Incitement in Palestinian Textbooks, published on 07/12/2010, as “a Jewish organization with links to extremist and racist Israeli groups that advocate settlement activities in the Palestinian territories, expulsion (transfer) of Palestinians from their homeland, and claims that Palestinians are all “terrorists” and that peace with them is not possible.”

These reports, which have been accepted at face value by proponents of Israel, particularly in the USA’s political and media spheres, claim that textbooks used in the occupied Palestinian territories are filled with anti-Semitic and inciting language.

While these claims have been completely debunked by a variety of sources and have been shown to be pure fabrication, they keep being parroted and resurface whenever the occupation is questioned.

What is however missing from this discussion, but becoming more apparent, is that the reverse is actually true.

The Israeli education system and Israeli textbooks are in fact filled with incitement and racist discourse.

The latest example of this was a leaked civics preparatory examination question approved by the Israeli ministry of education.

The text can be viewed on The Alternative Information Centre (AIC) news website.

The text of the question reads (translation used from AIC):

“The wives of rabbis published a letter calling on daughters of Israel not to hang around with Arabs. There are those who support this letter and those who think it’s not appropriate. Express your opinion about the letter. In your answer, present two reasons and explain using concepts you learned in civics.”

The most disturbing part of this story is that the sample answer provided takes the side of “the wives of rabbis” and provides racist arguments in support of that stance.

The sample answer reads as follows: “I support the letter of the wives of rabbis.

  1. If the daughters of Israel will hang around with Arabs, they are liable to have relationships and marry them. This would harm the Jewish majority of the state.

  2. If the daughters of Israel will hang around with Arabs, they are liable to fall victims of violence for nationalistic reasons. This would harm their right to life and security.”

The fact that the Education Ministry promotes openly racist stereotyping and discourse, particularly in a civics class, is indicative of the normalisation and prevalence of such forms of discourse within Israeli society at large and the education system in particular.

This type of language and use of racist tropes is not uncommon in Israel. It is however, remarkable that it would be considered acceptable to use in an educational setting.

The Israeli political leaders commonly use these tropes to represent Palestinians as alien and other.

Being referred to as “Arabs” as opposed to “Palestinians” is highly problematic, particularly when it is directed towards the Palestinian citizens of Israel.

It is a strategy that aims at separating them and their struggle from that of the Palestinians within the occupied territories and the refugees and Diaspora Palestinians.

It is also a way of diluting the specific Palestinian identity within a larger Arab identity, making it possible to argue that Palestinians can settle in any Arab country.

Another problem is the fact that “The daughters of Israel” is seen to represent only Jewish Israelis and not Palestinian citizens of Israel, even though around twenty per cent of Israelis are in fact Palestinian.

Palestinians are thus marginalised and excluded.

They are not seen to be legitimate citizens of the state of Israel. They are outsiders and alien to the state of Israel.

The third racist trope is the assumption of the threat of violence.

Palestinians are seen as inherently violent. This assumption of violence is presented as fact.

The fourth and final trope is the representation of Palestinians as a demographic threat.

There is nothing new in this statement, it is however extremely problematic.

The portrayal of Palestinians as a demographic threat is very commonplace in Israeli political discourse.

While this description can be traced back the early years of the Israeli state, it was first the Koenig Memorandum in 1976 and then Benjamin Netanyahu in 2003 who mainstreamed the use of the term in reference to the Palestinian citizens of Israel.

Rafeef Ziadah – ‘We teach life, sir’, London, 12.11.11

In 2003 the then interior minister, now prime minister, Netanyahu openly called the Palestinian citizens of Israel a demographic threat.

He said: “If there is a demographic problem, and there is, it is with the Israeli Arabs who will remain Israeli citizens.”

Since then, that language has become mainstream in Israeli political discourse and is regularly used to describe the native population.

The leaked civics examination question is not the only indicator that the Israeli education system is in fact filled with incitement and racist language. 

Nurit Peled-Elhanan, an Israeli scholar, tracks the propaganda and racism in Israeli textbooks in her book “Palestine in Israeli School Books: Ideology and Propaganda in Education”.

In an interview conducted by Alternate Focus last year she explains part of her findings in the book.

She explains that Israeli schoolbooks tend to use and deploy strategies of racist discourse similar to the ones used to represent the third world in European textbooks and First Nations in US ones.

The first such strategy is that Palestinians in Israeli textbooks are completely absent.

She says: “Palestinians are not represented at all in Israeli textbooks… In all the text books […] that I looked at you cannot find one photograph of a human being who is a Palestinian”

She continues by saying that “You never see a Palestinian doctor, or teacher, or child. And the only way they are represented are as the problems or threats… As terrorists… or primitive farmers… or in racist cartoons”, which is the second strategy to represent Palestinians.

She explains that Palestinians are often referred to as “the Palestinian problem”, echoing the European anti-Semitic language prevalent in the nineteenth and early twentieth century, which described the Jewish population as “the Jewish Problem”.

She explains in the rest of the interview the various other strategies deployed by Israeli schoolbooks, which as a whole amount to a very disturbing picture of the Israeli education system.

These strategies include representing the death of Palestinians “as the lesser evil if it brings any good consequences to us”.

She also says that: “Israelis are really educated to worship death, to sacrifice themselves for the country”.

She also notes that the “demographic problem” is very prominent in these textbooks, in reference to the 1948 Nakba.

The ethnic cleansing that took place in Palestine prior to and after the creation of Israel is represented as a just and necessary event in order to secure a Jewish majority in what had become Israel.

All these facts lead to the conclusion that if this deployment of incitement and racist discourse within the Israeli education system does not change, there is very little room for progress in resolving the plight of Palestinians.

What the mounting evidence shows is that the Israeli education system is a highly ideological system that institutionalises and normalises racist representations of the native population, i.e. Palestinians.

In such a context, it seems more apt to reverse the perennial question and, instead, ask “why do Israelis teach their children to hate?”

The Multiple Ways Monsanto is Putting Normal Seeds Out of Reach

From Surviving the Middle Class Crash

Posted by Barbara Peterson

February 05, 2009

monsanto_rain

By Linn Cohen-Cole

People say if farmers don’t want problems from Monsanto, just don’t buy their GMO seeds. 

Not so simple.

Where are farmers supposed to get normal seed these days?

How are they supposed to avoid contamination of their fields from GM-crops?

How are they supposed to stop Monsanto detectives from trespassing or Monsanto from using helicopters to fly over spying on them?  

Monsanto contaminates the fields, trespasses onto the land taking samples and if they find any GMO plants growing there (or say they have), they then sue, saying they own the crop.

It’s a way to make money since farmers can’t fight back and court and they settle because they have no choice. 

And they have done and are doing a bucket load of things to keep farmers and everyone else from having any access at all to buying, collecting, and saving of NORMAL seeds. 

1.  They’ve bought up the seed companies across the Midwest.

2.  They’ve written Monsanto seed laws and gotten legislators to put them through, that make cleaning, collecting and storing of seeds so onerous in terms of fees and paperwork and testing and tracking every variety and being subject to fines, that having normal seed becomes almost impossible (an NAIS approach to wiping out normal seeds).

Does your state have such a seed law? Before they existed, farmers just collected the seeds and put them in sacks in the shed and used them the next year, sharing whatever they wished with friends and neighbors, selling some if they wanted.

That’s been killed.

In Illinois, which has such a seed law, Madigan, the Speaker of the House, his staff is Monsanto lobbyists. 

3.  Monsanto is pushing anti-democracy laws (Vilsack’s brainchild, actually) that remove community’ control over their own counties so farmers and citizens can’t block the planting of GMO crops even if they can contaminate other crops.

So if you don’t want a GM-crop that grows industrial chemicals or drugs or a rice growing with human DNA in it, in your area and mixing with your crops, tough luck.

Check the map of just where the Monsanto/Vilsack laws are and see if your state is still a democracy or is Monsanto’s.

A farmer in Illinois told me he heard that Bush had pushed through some regulation that made this true in every state. People need to check on that.

4.  For sure there are Monsanto regulations buried in the FDA right now that make a farmer’s seed cleaning equipment illegal (another way to leave nothing but GM-seeds) because it’s now considered a “source of seed contamination.”

Farmer can still seed clean but the equipment now has to be certified and a farmer said it would require a million to a million and half dollar building and equipment … for EACH line of seed.

Seed storage facilities are also listed (another million?) and harvesting and transport equipment. And manure. Something that can contaminate seed. Notice that chemical fertilizers and pesticides are not mentioned.  

You could eat manure and be okay (a little grossed out but okay). Try that with pesticides and fertilizers. Indian farmers have.

Their top choice for how to commit suicide to escape the debt they have been left in is to drink Monsanto pesticides.

5.  Monsanto is picking off seed cleaners across the Midwest.

In Pilot Grove, Missouri, in Indiana (Maurice Parr), and now in southern Illinois (Steve Hixon).

And they are using US marshals and state troopers and county police to show up in three cars to serve the poor farmers who had used Hixon as their seed cleaner, telling them that he or their neighbors turned them in, so across that 6 county areas, no one talking to neighbors and people are living in fear and those farming communities are falling apart from the suspicion Monsanto sowed.

Hixon’s office got broken into and he thinks someone put a GPS tracking device on his equipment and that’s how Monsanto found between 200-400 customers in very scattered and remote areas, and threatened them all and destroyed his business within 2 days. 

So, after demanding that seed cleaners somehow be able to tell one seed from another (or be sued to kingdom come) or corrupting legislatures to put in laws about labeling of seeds that are so onerous no one can cope with them, what is Monsanto’s attitude about labeling their own stuff?

You guessed it – they’re out there pushing laws against ANY labeling of their own GM-food and animals and of any exports to other countries.

Why?   

We know and they know why. 

As Norman Braksick, the president of Asgrow Seed Co. (now owned by Monsanto) predicted in the Kansas City Star (3/7/94) seven years ago, “If you put a label on a genetically engineered food, you might as well put a skull and crossbones on it.”  

And they’ve sued dairy farmers for telling the truth about their milk being rBGH-free, though rBGH is associated with an increased risk of breast, colon and prostate cancers. 

I just heard that some seed dealers urge farmers to buy the seed under the seed dealer’s name, telling the farmers it helps the dealer get a discount on seed to buy a lot under their own name.

Then Monsanto sues the poor farmer for buying their seed without a contract and extorts huge sums from them. 

Here’s a youtube video that is worth your time.

Vandana Shiva is one of the leading anti-Monsanto people in the world.

In this video, she says (and this video is old)Monsanto had sued 1500 farmers whose fields had simply been contaminated by GM-crops. Listen to all the ways Monsanto goes after farmers. 

Do you know the story of Gandhi in India and how the British had salt laws that taxed salt?

The British claimed it as theirs.

Gandhi had what was called a Salt Satyagraha, in which people were asked to break the laws and march to the sea  and collect the salt without paying the British.

A kind of Boston tea party, I guess.  

Thousands of people marched 240 miles to the ocean where the British were waiting.

As people moved forward to collect the salt, the British soldiers clubbed them but the people kept coming.

The non-violent protest exposed the British behavior, which was so revolting to the world that it helped end British control in India.   

Vandana Shiva has started a Seed Satyagraha – nonviolent non-cooperation around seed laws – has gotten millions of farmers to sign a pledge to break those laws.   

American farmers and cattlemen might appreciate what Gandhi fought for and what Shiva is bringing back and how much it is about what we are all so angry about – loss of basic freedoms. [The highlighting is mine.]

 

The Seed Satyagraha is the name for the nonviolent, noncooperative movement that Dr. Shiva has organized to stand against seed monopolies.

According to Dr. Shiva, the name was inspired by Gandhi’s famous walk to the Dandi Beach, where he picked up salt and said, “You can’t monopolize this which we need for life.” 

But it’s not just the noncooperation aspect of the movement that is influenced by Gandhi.

The creative side saving seeds, trading seeds, farming without corporate dependence–without their chemicals, without their seed.

” All this is talked about in the language that Gandhi left us as a legacy. We work with three key concepts.”

(One) Swadeshi…which means the capacity to do your own thing–produce your own food, produce your own goods….”

(Two) Swaraj–to govern yourself. And we fight on three fronts–waterfood, and seed.

JalSwaraj is water independence–water freedom and water sovereignty.

Anna Swaraj is food freedom, food sovereignty.

And Bija Swaraj is seed freedom and seed sovereignty.

Swa means self–that which rises from the self and is very, very much a deep notion of freedom. 

“I believe that these concepts, which are deep, deep, deep in Indian civilization, Gandhi resurrected them to fight for freedom.

They are very important for today’s world because so far what we’ve had is centralized state rule, giving way now to centralized corporate control, and we need a third alternate.

That third alternate is, in part, citizens being able to tell their state, ‘This is what your function is. This is what your obligations are,’ and being able to have their states act on corporations to say, ‘This is something you cannot do.’”

(Three) Satyagraha, non-cooperation, basically saying, ‘We will do our thing and any law that tries to say that (our freedom) is illegal… we will have to not cooperate with it. We will defend our freedoms to have access to water, access to seed, access to food, access to medicine.’”

Warning: Cell Phones May Trigger ADHD and Other Behavior Problems

Mercola.com

From Mercola

By Dr. Mercola – July 04, 2012

If you’re pregnant, there is compelling evidence that you should use extreme caution when using a cell phone, and at least take care to keep it as far away from your developing baby as possible.

The latest animal study suggests that the increasingly prevalent neurobehavioral disorders in children — conditions like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) — may be related to exposure to radiofrequency radiation from cell phones while in utero.i

Hyperactivity, Impaired Memory Linked to In Utero Cell Phone Exposure

Researchers from the Yale School of Medicine positioned a cell phone above a cage of pregnant mice.

The phone was transmitting an uninterrupted active call for the entire 17 days of gestation.

When the offspring were later tested, they showed signs of ADHD, including reduced transmissions in the prefrontal cortex of the brain.

As researchers noted:

“The prefrontal cortex (PFC) is responsible for executive functions by screening distractions and maintaining attention in goal-oriented behaviors. Impairment of the PFC leads to dysregulated behavior/emotion such as ADHD.”

They further explained:

“Mice exposed [to cell phone radiation] during pregnancy had impaired memory, were hyperactive, and had decreased anxiety, indicating that in-utero exposure to radiofrequency is a potential cause of neurobehavioral disorders. …

The exposure to cellular telephones in pregnancy may have a comparable effect on the fetus and similar implications for society as do exposures to other common neurodevelopmental toxicants.”

It’s widely known that children, due to their thinner skulls, smaller brains, softer brain tissue and far more rapidly dividing cells, are even more susceptible to damage from cell phone use than adults, which suggests that babies in the womb, who are perhaps the most vulnerable population of all, may be at similar or greater at risk.

The researchers expand:

“During critical windows in neurogenesis the brain is susceptible to numerous environmental insults; common medically relevant exposures include ionizing radiation, alcohol, tobacco, drugs and stress.

The effects of these agents are dependent on dose and timing of exposure.

Even small exposures during periods of neurogenesis have a more profound effect than exposure as an adult …environmental exposures occurring in fetal life can lead to persistent neurological deficits.”

Cell Phones May Cause “Certain Harm” to Fetal Rat Brains

This was the conclusion of a study in Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine,ii which sought to evaluate the intensity of oxidative stress and the levels of neurotransmitters in the brains of fetal rats chronically exposed to radiation from cell phones.

Four groups of pregnant rats were exposed to different intensities of cell phone microwave radiation — one group that was left unexposed, and three groups that were irradiated three times daily for either 10, 30, or 60 minutes at a time.

After three weeks, the fetal rats were examined for changes in their brains.

Studies on humans have corroborated these findings. All of the irradiated groups exhibited significant neurological differences, with researchers noting:

“Through this study, we concluded that receiving a certain period of microwave radiation from cellular phones during pregnancy has certain harm on fetal rat brains.”

Studies Involving Human Children Show Increased Behavioral Problems With In Utero Cell Phone Exposure

In 2008, researchers analyzed data from nearly 13,000 children and found that exposure to cell phones while in the womb, and also as children, was linked to more behavioral difficulties.iii

 Pregnant women using handsets just two or three times a day was enough to raise the risk of their babies developing hyperactivity and difficulties with conduct, emotions and relationships by the time they reached school age — and the risk became even greater if the children also used the phones themselves before age 7.

The 2008 study revealed that mothers who used mobile phones were 54 percent more likely to have children with behavioral problems.

When the children also later used the phones themselves by age 7, they were:

  • 80 percent more likely to suffer from difficulties with behavior

  • 25 percent more at risk from emotional problems

  • 34 percent more likely to suffer from difficulties relating to their peers

  • 35 percent more likely to be hyperactive

  • 49 percent more prone to problems with conduct

Then, in 2010, the researchers looked at a larger group of children — nearly 29,000 — and also considered additional variables that could be swaying the results, and the association was found once again.iv 

In that study, children whose mothers used cell phones while pregnant were 40 percent more likely to have behavioral problems and this rose to 50 percent when the children also used cell phones themselves.

The researchers even accounted for family history of behavioral problems, inattention of the mother, breastfeeding and time spent with the child — and the association still remained.

If You’re Pregnant, Is Cell Phone Use Safe?

That’s a decision you’ll have to make for yourself after considering the evidence, such as the studies noted above.

I do believe there is more than enough evidence to warrant everyone limiting their cell phone use and taking precautions, and I have long recommended that, barring a life-threatening emergency, children should not use a cell phone, or a wireless device of any type.

A fetus is even more vulnerable than a child, so take that into consideration as well.

As a parent you have a responsibility to protect this young life.

Many government agencies across the globe are taking these risks very seriously.

The European Parliament has called for schools to be wireless free, in addition to hospitals, day care and retirement living facilities.

And in a report published by Mobilewise, a UK charity, medical experts and Mobilewise call on government and industry to provide warnings and advice on ways to reduce the risk of health damage when using mobile phones, especially in order to protect children.

The report “Mobile Phone Health Risks: the case for action to protect children” warns that children’s health is being put at risk by the failure of government and phone companies to respond to the growing body of evidence linking mobile phone use with health hazards.vi

It includes a chart of more than 200 peer-reviewed studies from numerous research institutions that link mobiles to serious health problems.

These include brain tumors and impacts on fertility, genes, the blood-brain barrier and melatonin production, as well as other biological effects thought to have a role in the development of cancer.

The telecommunication industry is much larger than the medical industrial complex, and they have far more influence than the drug companies.

They’re also mirroring many of the same tactics as the tobacco industry to pedal their wares.

There is already robust scientific evidence that cell phones and other wireless devices pose significant health risks to all of us, and especially to children and pregnant women.

So while these findings are not being widely publicized in mainstream media, it makes sense to take action now to protect yourself and your children.

Understand the media has significant conflicts of interest, given the millions of dollars in advertising dollars they receive from the wireless industry.

ElectromagneticHealth.org has estimated telecom ad revenues might total as much as $6-60 million annually at U.S. newspapers and business magazines, based on a sampling of ad space in major papers and magazines.

The average percentage of telecom ad space during the sample period was applied to the published print ad revenues of the publications, as a gauge of the magnitude of potential telecom revenues to these publications.

Camilla Rees of ElectromagneticHealth.org says:

“Not only are several large media organizations sitting on the fence on this subject, shirking their responsibility to the public (though many are following the subject closely), but some of them, it appears, may intentionally be supporting the interests of the telecom industry, as is also the case with some universities.

In both cases it appears protecting important sources of revenue is what is most important to them. “

Rees co-led a detailed analysis of an Economist article last Fall that was endorsed by over 30 leading international scientists, portraying the Economist article in question as riddled with “technical errors and misleading statements.”

The Economist critique stated:vii

“With this unsigned opinion piece (which appeared to be a news article) containing so many technical errors and misleading statements, The Economist has undermined its reputation for independent and probing analysis. The Economist owes its readers a better accounting of the science on this important public health issue.”

So, until the damn of denial is broken regarding media coverage of the hazards of microwave radiation, look to the independent science, and independent reporting sources, that have not been influenced by commercial interests.

Top Steps for Safer Cell Phone Use

You can help to minimize your exposure to electromagnetic radiation from cell phones and other wireless devices by heeding the following advice:

  • Children Should Always Avoid Using Cell Phones: Barring a life-threatening emergency, children should not use a cell phone, or a wireless device of any type. 

    Children’s brains are far more vulnerable to cell phone radiation than adults, because of their thinner skull bones.

  • Reduce Your Cell Phone Use: Turn your cell phone off more often. 

    Reserve it for emergencies or important matters. 

    As long as your cell phone is on, it emits radiation intermittently, even when you are not actually making a call.

     If you’re pregnant, avoiding or reducing your cell phone use is especially important.

  • Use a Land Line at Home and at Work: Although more and more people are switching to using cell phones as their exclusive phone contact, it is a dangerous trend and you can choose to opt out of the madness.

     SKYPE offers a portable number via your computer that can plug into any Ethernet port while traveling.

  • Reduce or Eliminate Your Use of Other Wireless Devices: You would be wise to cut down your use of these devices.

     Just as with cell phones, it is important to ask yourself whether or not you really need to use them as often as you do. 

    And most importantly, do not even consider having any electronic or wireless devices in the bedroom, as the electric, magnetic and microwave fields can significantly interfere with the quality of your sleep.

If you must use a portable home phone, use the older kind that operates at 900 MHz.

They are not safer during calls, but at least many of them do not broadcast constantly even when no call is being made.

There is a new Siemens Eco DECT phone on the market, where if only one handset is activated, it can be set to only radiate during a call as opposed to 24/7.

However, since many people have multiple portable phone handsets this is not, as of yet, a practical solution.

And, unless one knows to deactivate the radiation through putting the phone into Eco Mode Plus mode, it will still be continually emitting microwaves.

Note the only way to truly be sure if there is an exposure from your cordless phone is to measure with an electrosmog meter, and it must be one that goes up to the frequency of your portable phone (so old meters won’t help much).

As many portable phones are 5.8 Gigahertz, we recommend you look for RF meters that go up to 8 Gigahertz, the highest range now available in a meter suitable for consumers.

Alternatively you can be very careful with the base station placement as that causes the bulk of the problem since it transmits signals 24/7, even when you aren’t talking.

So if you can keep the base station at least three rooms away from where you spend most of your time, and especially your bedroom, they may not be as damaging to your health.

Another option is to just simply turn the portable phone off, only using it when you specifically need the convenience of moving about while on a call.

Ideally it would be helpful to turn off your base station every night before you go to bed.

You can find RF meters as well as remediation supplies at www.emfsafetystore.com.

But you can pretty much be sure your portable phone is a problem if the technology is DECT, or digitally enhanced cordless technology, unless you are using the new Siemens Eco DECT phone, with only one handset active, and the phone set to only radiate during conversations through the Eco Mode Plus feature.

  • Use Your Cell Phone Only Where Reception is Good: The weaker the reception, the more power your phone must use to transmit, and the more power it uses, the more radiation it emits, and the deeper the dangerous radio waves penetrate into your body. 

    Ideally, you should only use your phone with full bars and good reception.

  • Also Seek to Avoid Carrying Your Phone on Your Body as that merely maximizes any potential exposure. 

    Ideally put it in your purse or carrying bag.

     Placing a cell phone in a shirt pocket over the heart is asking for trouble, as is placing it in a man’s pocket if he seeks to preserve his fertility and sexual function.

  • Don’t Assume One Cell Phone is Safer Than Another: There’s no such thing as a “safe” cell phone.

  • Keep Your Cell Phone Away From Your Body When it is On: The most dangerous place to be, in terms of radiation exposure, is within about six inches of the emitting antenna. 

    You do not want any part of your body within that area. 

    Most people are surprised that cell phone manuals themselves specifically state to not place the phone against your body!

  • Respect Others Who are More Sensitive: Some people who have become sensitive can feel the effects of others’ cell phones in the same room, even when it is on but not being used. 

    If you are in a meeting, on public transportation, in a courtroom or other public places, such as a doctor’s office, keep your cell phone turned off out of consideration for the ‘second hand radiation’ effects.

     This would especially apply to places where reflections would be high, such as in a metal elevator, train car or automobile. 

    Children are also more vulnerable, so please avoid using your cell phone near children.

If you are using the Pong case, which redirects the cell phone radiation away from the head and successfully lowers the SAR effect, realize that in redirecting the radiation away from your head this may be intensifying the radiation in another direction, perhaps toward the person next to you, or, if in your pocket, increasing radiation intensity toward your body.

Caution is always advised in dealing with any radiation-emitting device. We recommend cell phones be kept ‘Off’ except for emergencies.

  • Use Safer Headset Technology: Wired headsets will certainly allow you to keep the cell phone farther away from your body. However, if a wired headset is not well-shielded — and most of them are not — the wire itself acts as an antenna attracting ambient radio waves and transmitting radiation directly to your brain.

Make sure that the wire used to transmit the signal to your ear is shielded.

The best kind of headset to use is a combination shielded wire and air-tube headset.

These operate like a stethoscope, transmitting the information to your head as an actual sound wave; although there are wires that still must be shielded, there is no wire that goes all the way up to your head.
