The evidence is now clear that it is not prudent or healthy for you to carry a cell phone on your body, unless it is turned off.
Today’s Journal presents more evidence about the health dangers of cell phone usage, and features a video by Dr. Devra Davis, Ph.D., a well regarded epidemiologist and researcher. You can view her biographical information here.
If you are pregnant, or have children, you absolutely must understand these concerns and risks.
This presentation runs for one hour. It is a good way to spend one hour.

In case you didn’t watch Dr. Davis’ presentation, I’ll quote one of the images she put in her lecture; from Albert Einstein,” The world is not dangerous because of those who do harm, but because of those who look at it without doing anything.”
While Dr. Einstein’s quote is endearing, make no mistake about it…the world is also dangerous because of those who do harm.
Dr. Davis uses the very appropriate analogy that the current day negative health effects of cell phone usage is much like the former period in the 1950’s and 1960’s when people were beginning to understand the dangers of tobacco smoking.
The tobacco industry was in a full court press marketing campaign in the post WWII days. I have some old Life Magazine copies from the 1940’s and 1950’s showing celebrities (Bob Hope) and doctors (physicians) on the entire back cover page in aggressively worded advertisements which promote Camel cigarettes, and other brands. I showed these images in slide show health lectures I used to present around Boulder County.
Dr. Davis’ presents hardly the tip of a new emerging field of research on electromagnetic field (EMF) effects from common devices in our everyday lives. You may recall that it took several decades to get rid of cigarette advertising.
I obviously use a computer, another emitter of EMF. There are many other EMF effects in a home, such as wall electrical wiring, wireless router waves, portable telephones, television screens, as well as all of the other electrical appliances.
There are excellent nutritional approaches which mitigate EMF effects
The several nutrient products from Designs for Health which I use and endorse are:
1) NeuroMag, a threonate magnesium combination with some interesting brain protective research
3) CogniAid…for overall brain chemistry support
4) Brain Vitale…for enhancing acetylcholine production, the neurotransmitter which declines in Alzheimer’s disease
5) Any of these other brain chemistry support products
6) Any of these antioxidants
7) Robust dosing of vitamin D, usually 10,000 IU per day, or more, if one has Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) mutations as I see in 45% of clients. It is super critical that vitamin D be complexed with adequate amounts of vitamin K2 in order to move calcium into the bones
8) Omega 3 fatty acids…multipurpose in prostaglandin E1 and E3 production, cell membrane production and function, as well as serving as a generalized anti-inflammatory modulator
I wrote a comprehensive article about vitamin D in March, 2012, and you can review it here. Vitamin D dosing on a daily basis should be enough to move blood levels into therapeutic range. Depending on one’s lab ranges, a therapeutic range for good maintenance of the vitamin’s health benefits are ranges of 50-80 ng/ml or 80-100 ng/ml.
The latter range is for optimal protective effect, and would be more important in those who have mutations at their Vitamin D Receptors (VDR gene sites). It is very important that the vitamin D be complexed with adequate amounts of vitamin K2 in order to activate the vitamin K2 proteins which will move calcium into bone deposition and away from peripheral tissue deposition.

The European Environmental Agency has said long term cell phone use “could be as big a public health risk as smoking, asbestos and leaded gasoline.” The World Health organization has taken a stand by warning that enough evidence exists to link cell phone use with certain types of cancer. See this announcement.
In our home, we use telephones which are wired to the wall receptacle with a cord. We put the cordless 900 megahertz phones in a box in the attic “a while back.”
I gave up the microwave devices many years ago.
A potentially helpful device to help mitigate electro-smog from hand held devices is seen at this link.
For more helpful articles on EMF, and EMF mitigation, you can view my commentary and the links in an earlier Journal writing on this site entitled “The Smorgasbord Mélange of EMF Delights,” posted on April 1, 2011, just after the Fukushima event.
I own a cell phone, which is usually turned off, like 99.99% of the time. One does not have to become so dependent on such a device.
I turn it on only when I need to use it, and I only need to use it when I travel. I only travel in my truck, and I don’t travel in my truck too much. I only need to use it if I have to have some help with some question—like, what do I need to pick up at the grocery store. Important questions do come up when we travel, and if we are unable to figure them out, then we can call someone who may help us.
All of my friends and family have learned that I really don’t communicate by cell phone, and so there are never any messages left on my phone. When I call my friends and family, I realize that they are using cell phones in most instances, and so I will have to refer them to this Journal entry in the future.
When you use a cell phone inside of a motor vehicle (a closed metal container), the phone works harder, emitting more energy, as it searches for a tower. Therefore, in such a circumstance, and really in all cell phone use circumstances, one should use an extension cord device plugged into the phone in order to keep the phone device as far away from your body as possible.
The exposure of a child to cell phone EMF may be considered as child abuse. We are all children.
One day we will communicate more with our psychic instrumentation, and we will also be able to communicate transdimensionally.
Here is a little side bar notation about some cell phone related karma in an excerpt from an address given by Noam Chomsky on June 19, 2012 at the University of St. Andrews in Fife, Scotland on the occasion of its 600th anniversary. This quote may stimulate your imagination to consider a bigger picture of global pillage:
“This is only one example of struggles under way over much of the world, some with extreme violence, as in resource-rich eastern Congo, where millions have been killed in recent years to ensure an ample supply of minerals for cellphones and other uses, and of course ample profits.”
Chomsky was delivering an address entitled “The Magna Carta Shredded Before Our Eyes.” You can read the relatively short delivery on some of our Anglo American history, and its dismemberment.
As I stated in my opening line of this Journal entry, cell phones are safe when they are turned off. However, it seems like people have become somewhat addicted to these devices, their multiple uses, and their applications.
Moreover, there is a mechanism built into every cell phone which can be activated remotely by some covert secret entities who may have interest in your private conversations.
As you venture down this particular rabbit hole, you will discover more of the unpleasantries of cell phones.
I wish you well on your Odyssey.
