EXTRA LOW FREQUENCY (ELF) ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS AND SUDDEN UNEXPECTED INFANT DEATH (SIDS)

Here are a couple of paragraphs from Roger Coghill's website re SIDS.

These comments and references to other studies, help to support the vital need to evaluate and compare cases of SIDS, Leukaemia, brain cancer, breast cancer, Lou Gehrig's Disease, miscarriage, Alzheimers -- really ANY disease or combination of symptoms re suspected ES/EHS as to whether affected persons are sleeping/were sleeping with or close to electrical items including, but not limited to, appliances, heaters, some telephone equipment, metal beds and headboards, possible wiring problem, pipes with high currents, etc. with persons for which no such exposures relate strongly to that group.

Government and industry have been successful in regard to "pulling the wool over the eyes of the public" by attempting to placate persons with the facts that EMF/EMR is "everywhere." Those facts can not be disputed. Studies will continue to be "inconclusive/ambiguous/misleading/inaccurate" until and unless there is "a focus" on studies re close, chronic, prolonged nighttime electrical exposures.

As most on your list know, Prof. Olle Johansson will produce the needed in-vitro studies that will shed light on "mysteries in epidemiologic studies....." He has already given us the excellent interview "Mysteries in the Skin." Prof. Olle Johansson needs only to have the necessary funding........to do what we so desperately need to HELP SAVE THE CHILDREN!!!! We all know that phrase is "a driving force" that is really behind revealing information that is deliberately being kept from the public and that applies to "every peson" and includes "every single symptom known to man (animal too, of course).

The facts that even "good biological changes" -- "reduced symptoms," even "bone growth," "pain relief," and more can be induced by certain therapeutic EMF stimulators -- non-ionizing radiation, prove substantially that EMF/EMR is responsible for "real health effects" and not just "insignificant biological effects."

Soon government and industry will no longer be able to intimidate and bombard the public with the "criminal rhetoric" that EMF/EMRs' "biological changes" have no relevance in regard to "serious health effects" -- "DISEASE....!!!!" Best wishes and take care - Joanne

However, the ubiquitous nature of EM domestic sources within any home makes it a natural possibility that some SIDS cases, perhaps as many as half, might originate from chronic exposure to ambient EM fields from domestic appliances such as storage or other heaters, electric blankets and the like which are switched on for long periods. Accordingly a possible correlation between SIDS and domestic EM field strength should also be investigated. There are indications, both in the literature and from case series, that this may be so. Ramanathan and Chandra (1988) reported that out of 34 SIDS cases no less than six had been lying on or under electric blankets or electrically heated water beds.

Another reported a SIDS case where the victim had been in a carry cot on a floor heated by underfloor electric heating. A recent Tasmanian study reported that in 69 percent of SIDS cases home heating had been operating at the time. Only 1 percent of Tasmanian homes have central heating and the probability is that the SIDS homes were being heated electrically. Though the princpipal aim of the study was to investigate position, the authors identified heating as being associated independently with SIDS. This was also the case in a Bristol University study (Wigfield et al, 1992) which did not however identify which kind of heating had been involved. It is hard to escape the conclusion that there is a strong association between chronic exposure to ELF electromagnetic fields and SIDS.

Near miss SIDS

This phenomenon is where the parent notices by chance that the infant is unwell (and often cyanosing), and picks up it up, removing it from the distress location, usually to the nearest hospital or doctor's surgery. The infant rapidly recovers and quickly becomes well again, so that in some cases the investigating doctor cannot find any sign of ill health. Sadly a second occurrence after the infant has returned to its habitual environment, is usually not so fortunate in outcome. @PARAHEAD = Position De Jongh reported that 88 percent of SIDS infants are found dead in a prone position, suggesting that this may be due to an agonal response. Other common symptoms are that the infant utters distress cries for some days before death, is often irritable, and will not settle, or refuses a feed. Some infants are found in positions very different from that in which they are placed at bedtime.

All these can be understood in the context of the infant's sensitivity to EM fields, possibly because the cerebral myelination process is not complete in human beings until one year of life, and responds by attempting to evade the EM field region. It was suggested by Ponsonby and subsequently by Fleming that placing the infant in a supine position would by itself lessen the risk of SIDS occurrence. However recent national UK publicity to promote the advice to place the baby in a supine position for sleep has always been accompanied by advice not to overheat the infant ( FSIDS pamphlet, 1992).

Immunological disorder

Some studies have noted disorders of immune competence reporting altered levels of IgG or IgE, though this is not confirmed in other studies. Snuffles, colds, and other infections are commonly reported during the last week of life before a SIDS occurrence, suggesting a mild immune incompetence. Laboratory studies have confirmed that even short term exposure to ELF EM fields inhibits lymphocyte cytotoxicity by upto 40 percent. Other studies (Wertheimer & Leeper, 1979; Feychting and Ahlbom, 1992) have confirmed that increased incidence of childhood leukaemia incidence is associated with proximity to important sources of EM fields. If such fields have serious adverse health effects on children it would be consistent to suggest that infants are even more badly affected. The peak age of death in SIDs is 12.6 weeks, the time when fetal haemoglobin is being replaced by the infant's own haemoglobin, and assuming independent immunological status from the mother.

This, dear Joanne, is also so extremely important to investigate. SIDS - and related children's diseases/deaths - must (!) be a priority for the society! If not, the world's democracies are not very much to rely on...

Mobile phone addiction: fear and depression as consequences

Mobile phone addiction: Clinic treats children

By Graham Tibbetts

Increase in brain tumours from mobile phones

Time to Remember: Cell Phone Companies Patent Cancer Shields

By Nic Fleming and Ian Cobain

The world's largest mobile telephone manufacturers have been patenting devices to reduce the risk of brain tumors among users while rejecting claims of any health hazards.

Engineers for the "Big Three" - Nokia, Ericsson and Motorola - have all invented new components to shield users from radiation emissions from the handsets.

One application that Nokia has lodged with the United States Patent Office in Washington, and which has been seen by The Times, notes that "it has been suggested that" continuous exposure to radio frequency irradiation could lead "to a development of malignant tumor".

The patents show that the manufacturers have been working on radiation-reducing components for at least eight years. The companies maintain that there is no contradiction between their public stance and the existence of the patents.

Scientific opinion is divided. The most recent large-scale study found no links between such phones and cancers, although other studies suggest that there may be health risks.

However, the discovery that manufacturers have apparently "hedged their bets" by applying for patents on irradiation-reducing components has alarmed consumers' groups and some scientists.

The patents are now to be used in evidence in a series of US lawsuits launched this year against businesses including the British market leader Vodafone. Some 25 US patents were unearthed by Carl Hilliard, of the Wireless Consumer Alliance, last month.

Alasdair Philips, of the British consumer watchdog Powerwatch, said: "This is confirmation that the phone companies take the possibility of health problems far more seriously than they say in public."

The patents also alarmed Dr Alan Preece, a medical physicist at Bristol University, who demonstrated in a government-funded study two years ago that mobile-phone radiation affected brain activity in ways unconnected with its heating properties.

He said: "I think they are hedging their bets by doing this so that if the evidence does emerge, they have products up their sleeves."

Christopher Newman, a 42-year-old neurologist, is bringing a £500 million lawsuit against companies including Motorola and Verizon Communications at the US federal court in Baltimore, claiming they are responsible for his malignant brain tumour. Verizon is a joint venture between America's Bell Atlantic and Vodafone, the UK's most popular network with over 12 million of the 40 million mobile users.

Mr Newman's lawyer has also recently filed class actions in five states, again naming Verizon and Motorola and others such as Nokia and Ericsson. These seek unspecified punitive damages, money to reimburse people who bought mobile headsets to reduce exposure and free protective headsets for all mobile users.

Cases have been filed on behalf of four more tumour victims. One, Michael Murray, used to test mobiles for Motorola and claims his work caused his two brain tumors.

Thompsons, Britain's biggest personal-injury law firm, has on its books 30 phone users who claim to be suffering a range of health problems.Tom Jones, a partner, said: "Any judgment showing liability in the States would strongly affect the likelihood of successful claims here."

Manufacturers denied that the patents meant that they accepted the existence of hazards. Michael Westmark, Ericsson spokesman on health, said: "Given the available scientific evidence, there is no link between mobile use and negative health effects" - a view also expressed by Norman Sandler of Motorola.

William Plummer, Nokia vice president said: "There is no contradiction here. The patents talk of 'suggestions' of health risks. A third of our employees are engaged in research and development and it is a natural course of business that they then file for patents."

Zweifel an der Objektivität Mobilfunkveranstaltung: Initiative und BUND halten Referentin Dr. Caroline Herr für parteiisch

HEPPENHEIM. Im Vorfeld der Informationsveranstaltung zum Thema Mobilfunk, zu der Heppenheims Magistrat heute, Donnerstag (25.), um 19 Uhr in den Kurfürstensaal des Amtshofes eingeladen hat, ist Kritik an der Wahl der Referentin laut geworden. Sowohl die Bürgerinitiative Mobilfunk Kirschhausen als auch der Bund für Umwelt und Naturschutz (BUND), Kreisverband Bergstraße, werfen der Stadt vor, mit Dr. Caroline Herr, stellvertretende Direktorin des Instituts für Hygiene und Umweltmedizin der Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen am Klinikum Gießen Marburg GmbH, eine Referentin eingeladen zu haben, die das Problem Mobilfunk einseitig positiv angehe beziehungsweise, so jedenfalls die Initiative, „nachweislich für die Mobilfunkindustrie tätig“ sei.

Die Initiative wirft Bürgermeister Gerhard Herbert (SPD) jetzt vor, dem seit zwei Jahren vorgetragenen Wunsch nach objektiver Information und dem Versprechen, diesem Wunsch zu genügen, mit Frau Herr nicht nachzukommen. Spreche Herr doch für das Informationszentrum Mobilfunk (IZMF), „das von der Mobilfunkindustrie finanziert wird, wie jeder im Internet nachlesen kann“. Obwohl man seitens der Initiative zwei unabhängige Experten vorgeschlagen habe, die ohne Honorar antreten wollten, habe Herbert dieses Angebot ausgeschlagen. „Diese Informationspolitik“, so die Initiative, „ist für mündige Bürger weder nachvollziehbar noch akzeptabel“. Man behalte sich vor, eine eigene Veranstaltung zum Thema Mobilfunk anzubieten.

Auch der BUND hält die Expertin für wenig geeignet, objektive Informationen zum Thema zu geben. Habe Frau Herr doch „bisher Gefahren durch Mobilfunk eindeutig verneint“. So halte sie den deutschen Grenzwert für diesen Bereich für ausreichend, „obwohl dieser – auch nach Aussagen der deutschen Strahlenschutzkommission – nur den Wärmeeffekt der Mobilfunkstrahlung begrenzt. Andere, nicht thermische Wirkungen werden in Deutschland nicht durch einen Grenzwert geregelt“.

Auch Untersuchungen, die gesundheitliche Beeinträchtigungen zumindest nahe legten, würden von ihr als nicht im kausalen Zusammenhang bewiesen ignoriert. Und selbst Zusammenhänge zwischen Krankheitssymptomen und Mobilfunkanlagen, von Ärzten in ihrer praktischen Arbeit beobachtet, „werden von Frau Dr. Herr als nicht wissenschaftlich und als Panikmache bewertet.“ Man dürfe also „gespannt sein, ob und wie Frau Dr. Herr bei ihrem Referat in Heppenheim auf Fragen aus dem Publikum reagiert“.

Infoveranstaltung des Magistrates zum Thema Mobilfunk, heute, Donnerstag (25.), 19 Uhr, Kurfürstensaal im Kurmainzer Amtshof.
