Is your cell phone killing you?

Cell phone bomb pictureThe LA Time articles (LATimes.com/Health) on Electromagnetic Fields (Victims of Electrosensitivity syndrome say EMFs cause symptoms and Conclusions difficult from EMF research) left a bitter taste in my mouth and revealed how science has lost its objectivity.  In a world where facts are obscured by blatant conspiracy, you can get a feeling of insecurity.  If you cannot trust science, then who can you trust?  Of course, in reality, it is the corporate profiteers that cannot be trusted.  Real scientists, those with integrity cannot be bought off to lie about scientific fact.  But media is different; it makes money by hyping stories, regardless of the truth of those stories.  So lies can shroud what is happening, but people who are sick and disabled have their own voice.

People have been disabled and killed by products and manufacturing waste.  One could write a history of this sad but true state of affairs.  Erin Brockovich’s exposure of the deadly poisons seeping into the ground water in California may be the most renowned example that Hollywood has produced.  But there are now and have been in the past millions of people who were disabled and killed due to lies and deceit.  From the manufacturing of chrome, lead, mercury, asbestos, uranium and other compounds, the world has polluted environments where people live.

These articles are perplexing and really make you wonder how much of a snow job you are receiving in your daily news.  Either EFMS are unsafe or not.  Science should be able to prove that, but if it is unsafe, then how will the people know when billions and billions of dollars are generated making devices that produce these energy waves, especial cell phones.  The LA Time’s writer Chris Woolston writes: “In “Full Signal,” a documentary that premiered at the 2009 Santa Fe Film Festival, a self-described sufferer of EMF poisoning says that if someone accidentally forgets to turn off a cellphone before entering her house, she starts to feel ill within a couple of hours. “After four hours I can’t speak anymore,” she says.”  Now the article states that science doesn’t necessarily back up this fact.  The article continues as follows “A 2005 report from the World Health Organization — Brundtland’s former agency — stated that people who believe they’re sensitive to EMFs don’t seem to have any special abilities to actually detect the fields. The report suggested that anxiety about EMFs could be the root cause of all of the symptoms.”

Now another area where scientists have lost the public’s trust is global warming.  Everyone is wondering what is up with that especially after the huge blizzards that hit the Mid-Atlantic States.  The fact is that science is not at fault, but greed, which is the great sin of American society like the fundamentalists have said “the great demon.”  The lies and hypocrisy of science is that its members can be bought off for large sums of money.  Everyone knows that data can be construed to serve any purpose, regardless of its validity.

When car manufacturers discover a design flaw in their production of a million cars, and have to recall them, they lost billions of dollars.  It was said that when the Pinto was discovered to have the problem of exploding when hit from behind that the Ford executives said well it will cost X-millions to repair all the cars and half X-millions to pay all the wrongful death and disability lawsuits.  So to save money they did not recall the car.

If cell phones can actually cause brain tumors, then the reason scientists can’t agree on whether brain cancer is caused by EMF is because someone is paid to lie.  Unfortunately this world is ruled by lies.   What makes it all the more scary is learning that much of our news sources are supposedly owned by a few large corporations who themselves may benefit from not telling the truth.  Only until all of us suffer similar experiences, will we the people make an outcry.  Remember cigarettes contain carcinogens.  How long was it before we knew this fact?  And how long did it take before the manufacturers faced penalties?  How many people died?  Yet cigarettes are still legal though we all know they can kill you.

Erin Brockovich plot summary (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0195685/plotsummary)

Erin Brockovich is an unemployed single mother, desperate to find a job, but is having no luck. This losing streak even extends to a failed lawsuit against a doctor in a car accident she was in. With no alternative, she successfully browbeats her lawyer to give her a job in compensation for the loss. While no one takes her seriously, with her trashy clothes and earthy manners, that soon changes when she begins to investigate a suspicious real estate case involving the Pacific Gas & Electric Company. What she discovers is that the company is trying quietly to buy land that was contaminated by hexavalent chromium, a deadly toxic waste that the company is improperly and illegally dumping and, in turn, poisoning the residents in the area. As she digs deeper, Erin finds herself leading point in a series of events that would involve her lawfirm in one of the biggest class action lawsuits in American history against a multi-billion dollar corporation.Written by Kenneth Chisholm {kchishol@execulink.com}

    This article is fabulous, Phil, and thank you so much for pointing it out to me today. I had mentioned to you earlier on that I was just reading an article in a Health Magazine about the poisons that the chemical companies are inserting into our supposedly health promoting products labeled as supplements (vitamins, minerals, enzymes, pills for this, or capsules for that…

    You name it; chances are that they will come up with a remedy! Many of these additives to your daily menu of nutrition which you take ongoing as a so called “medicine” can actually have serious side effects.

    Take for instance the so called innocent looking mineral selenium, which if you get it in its natural source from vegetables is very beneficial.

    However the form found in a supplement is sodium selenite, notice the difference in the spelling, the natural form is mentioned if spelled correctly would be selenate with an ‘a’ and not an ‘i,’ now is this a simple variation of grammar, or perhaps NOT?

    Actually, the product spelled with an ‘i’ at the ending syllable is not identical and is poisonous as are other ingredients in many forms of so called get-well or stay fit supplements or other such claims promoting wellness.

    What is one to do about that? Is it the advance of technology that creates the greed of large corporations or is it the confusion, and who are we to believe when we have conflicting data?

    Should we turn to G-d? Even the Almighty Blessed be He, our Creator, sometimes hides the answers as if it is a puzzle, the truth quite complex, and the answers complicated, depending on the situation when we may be muddled and bewildered.

    We cry out, and the tears roll down our faces in despair and anguish as we try to get the correct answer and wonder why is this set to out to bring chaos into our lives?

    Is our cell phone killing us? What do we do? Can we find a solution to stop being baffled by corporate gimmicks or can we continue to walk blindly without hesitation?

    I think we need to continue to question that which is obscured from our sight and seek more data. An informed person is one who might be better off in the long run, let us seek more solutions from research and continue to study what is going on in our world! Thank you for reading this!!! Blessings, Janine
