The aptness of Russia for a launch of "World Without Waves"

Hi Klaus: It is so apt that the/our film “World Without Waves” is being launched in Russia. Here are another couple of reasons why this is so:

1. I have finished rereading Karl Maret, M.D., M.Eng, report of Dr. Yuri Grigoriev's presentation at a Kazkhstan conference on "Electromagnetic Fields and Human Health" (Sept. 4-12, 2003) which I will paste in below. Dr. Grigoriev's, as we know, is chairing the upcoming Sept. 2004 Moscow venued International Conference on Electromagnetic Fields and Human Health. You placed the announcement and details of this upcoming Russian conference, Klaus, right beside that of “World Without Waves” in your last group posting.

Please take particular note of these statements in Dr. Maret’s report of Dr. Grigoriev’s presentation:

"Many people in Russia are now electrosensitive, many from second-hand irradiation who don't even own these devices."

"He [Dr. Yuri Grigoriev] felt that EMF represented perhaps the greatest danger facing humanity at this time."

"He stressed the negative influence of cell phones and the irradiation patterns of the brain. He cautioned children from being exposed to these devices due to their greater absorption of EMFs."

"He talked about . . . how an international alliance is now forming to warn more people of these radiation problems. 42 countries now have reported in Geneva as part of WHO regarding non-ionizing radiation effects and an active need to fight the existing electropollution is now being recognised."


The following is excerpted (pp. 6-7, total 16) from "Report on the Travel to Almaty, Kazakhstan to attend the International Conference ‘Electromagnetic Fields and Human Health’ September 4-12, 2003 by Karl Maret, M.D., M.Eng. On behalf of National Foundation for Alternative Medicine Washington, DC.” Archived online at:

"2. Yuri Grigoriev : "EMF as a Risk Factor for the Population's Health (Current State of the Problem)”

He described the most scientific data of the conference reporting on Russian research with EMF exposure over the last 20 years. He stated that the former Soviet Union had done research for the last 50 years on the damaging effects of EMF exposure. He is part of the World Health Organization which is aware of the increasing EMF problems and 40 countries are working together to develop better standards for safe exposure. He reported both his personal views and those of the official Russian position on this topic.

He felt that EMF represented perhaps the greatest danger facing humanity at this time. Exposure of magnetic fields greater than 0.2 microTesla (2 milliGauss) at 50 Hz power line frequencies has definitely been shown to cause leukemia in populations. He showed how various devices commonly used exceed the safe magnetic exposure levels as shown in the table below:

Clearly many of our common household devices exceed the recommended magnetic field intensity at close range and many even at 1 foot distance. He also showed many graphs of the magnetic field distribution in room and offices showing especially the influence of computers and workstations on the increased EMF now being experienced.

He stressed the negative influence of cell phones and the irradiation patterns of the brain. He cautioned children from being exposed to these devices due to their greater absorption of EMFs. Many people in Russia are now electrosensitive, many from second-hand irradiation who don’t even own these devices. He mentioned the assessment procedures used for cell phones with phantoms used to ascertain absorption levels. He talked about the Salzburg meetings on Cell Towers and how an international alliance is now forming to warn more people of these radiation problems. 42 countries now have reported in Geneva as part of WHO regarding non-ionizing radiation effects and an active need to fight the existing electropollution is now being recognized.

He showed several very impressive slides on animal studies they had done to show the effect of EMFs on chick embryos. This data is shown below shows that there is a 50% mortality in chick embryos after 21 days of cell phone exposure compared to only 10% in control animals.

The radiation patterns from cell phones are also important and he showed data of the usage pattern throughout a typical day which clearly illustrates that we have different levels of electromagnetic microwave exposure at various times of the day. This data is reproduced below.

He also stressed the importance at looking at low frequency modulation patterns of microwave radiation because of the powerful biological effect this causes. Below is reproduced one of his slides showing the effect of low frequency modulated microwaves on isolated frog hearts. The microwave frequency used was 9.3 GigaHertz which is somewhere between a cell phone (in US around 2 GHz and a satellite TV signal 12 GHz). The modulation frequencies used were between 1-100 Hz and are similar to brain wave EEG frequencies (0.5 –30 Hz) and other biological signals. He also compared these modulated signals to continuous wave (CW) signals which were very much less effective in causing slowing of heart rate (bradycardia) or cardiac arrest. This research is very important because there has not been very much investigation of the impact of low frequency modulation of microwave signals. Every digital cellular telephone sends these type of low frequency data signals out continuously when making calls.

He mentioned the great danger confronting the present population with these cell phones since insufficient research had been done to date. To support the magnitude of the challenges facing us, he mentioned how widespread the use of cell phone technology has become. For example in Great Britain 56% of children now had cellular phones and 70% of German children in certain age ranges. He warned against putting cell towers near kindergardens. He emphasized the neurological effects and the reproductive impacts of EMFs. In Russia children younger than 16 years were told to avoid cell phones as well as all pregnant women.

He made numerous references to scientific studies and invited the Kazakhstan government to develop a good program of protection for its population."


2. I also reread this morning the paper “Theoretical and Experimental Evidences where Present Safety Standards Conflict with Reality” by Dr. Vladimir Binhi and M. Fillion-Robin published in “Electromagnetic Environments and Health in Buildings” pp. 391-403 (ed. Derek Clements-Croome, 2004; based on conference held in Royal College of Physicians, in May 2002). Dr. Binhi is Head of Radiobiology laboratory, General Physics Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences. This is what he writes in his introduction:

“ Both experimental findings and theoretical approaches indicate that EM fields--even when they are too weak to heat tissues--may result in a variety of different biological effects some useful and some probably noxious. In this article, we show that hyperweak fields--even of intensities very much less than those emitted by cell phones--affect biology; thus it cannot longer be maintained that cell phone radiation cannot cause harmful biological effects. Accordingly, existent Western EM safety standards afford a totally inadequate level of protection, unlike those in Eastern Europe (and in the Russian Federation in particular) which are much more stringent, having been developed with the benefit of experience with non-thermal biological effects rather than solely heating. Here we will discuss in more detail the inadequacy of thermally-based guidelines, and study a new theoretical approach via which electromagnetic biocompatibility might be realized.”
