    i just receved this mail from Paul and thought it might intrest you, since swedeboy allready posted something about that.

    Hi.

    I've compiled the following simple explanations for leaflet distribution - since people seem to be so oblivious to the dangers this technology poses. Feel free to make leaflets and pass it around or just forward it to everyone you know. Teachers, especially give to your students - even the ones brain-dead from too much exposure to EMR. :)

    peace

    Do You Have Microwave Sickness?



    1. Symptoms known to be caused by exposure to microwave radiation: insomnia, headaches, swollen lymph nodes, depression, anxiety, loss of appetite, hypoxia (lack of oxygen getting to your tissues), inability to concentrate, forgetfulness, dizziness, irritability, nausea, hyperactivity, fatigue, vision problems, weakened immune system, etc. These symptoms very often suddenly appear in people who have had a cell phone tower installed nearby their home.



    2. Microwave exposure induces Oxidative Damage leading to depletion of the body's natural store of antioxidants like Super Oxide Dimutase (SOD), Catalase, Glutathione, CoQ10, and Melatonin. When the body becomes depleted in antioxidants, premature aging, increased infections, and sticky blood are just a few of the consequences. With a depressed level of antioxidants in the blood, for example, high density lipoproteins (HDL) or the good cholesterol will bind with free radicals (oxidants) turning the good cholesterol into bad cholesterol or low density lipoproteins (LDL). This leads to more viscous blood which in turn can lead to blood clots and even heart attacks.



    3. Microwaves have been known to affect an abnormal influx of calcium into cells. When there is an abnormal influx of calcium into mast cells, for example, they produce histamine. This is just one of the ways in which microwave exposure has been known to trigger or aggravate allergic reactions.



    4. Microwave exposure has been known to induce mitochondria disfunction. The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell. If it is not working properly this would interfere with the cells ability to produce energy and can be linked to fatigue and possibly even obesity.



    5. Microwaves have been shown to depolarize the body's red blood cells. This will cause the red blood cells to clump together and when this happens, the amount of oxygen getting to the brain cells and the cells other body's organs is decreased substantially leading to hypoxia. This can cause symptoms similar to altitude sickness: nausea, dizziness, inability to concentrate, and so on.



    6. Microwave exposure has been shown in studies to induce a decrease in the numbers of Natural Killer (NK) cells, a form of white blood cell which is the body's first line of defense against pathogens. This leads to a weakened ability to recover from viral and other types of infections. Therefore, people exposed to microwave radiation would take longer than normal to recover from your day-to-day infections.

    7. Exposure to long-term microwave radiation has been shown to change a particular form of white blood cell (lymphocyte) ratio - known as the T-helper/T-suppressor (T4/T8) cell ratio - from normal to abnormal. Abnormalities in this T-lymphocyte ratio have been shown to lead to an increased susceptibility to viral, fungal, and bacterial infections. Symptoms include sore throats, low-grade fevers, weakness, persistent fatigue, and swollen lymph glands.



    8. In fact, research has shown that exposure to microwaves and other electromagnetic radiation has been shown to increase viruses, bacteria, mold, parasites, and yeast in the blood of the human host.



    9. Microwave exposure has been shown in studies to induce what is known as "subliminal" stress ( since the body does not know it is being stressed) causing the adrenal glands to excrete an abnormally greater amount of cortisol and adrenaline. Excretion of adrenaline, for one, can lead to irritability and a feeling of hyperactivity - the latter now very common in children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). In a continuous state this will eventually lead to adrenal exhaustion, in which the adrenal glands just stop working.



    10. Microwave exposure has been shown to cause a decrease of 5-HT in the blood. 5-HT is a precursor to the production of the brain hormone serotonin. Low levels of serotonin have been linked to anxiety and depression. An increase in anxiety and depression can in turn be linked to to an increase in the number of suicides.



    11. Microwave exposure has been shown to induce a decrease in levels of the brain hormone norepinephrine. This hormone is essential for control of the autonomic nervous system, and lack of it can lead to autonomic nervous system disorder. For example, if the autonomic nervous system is not working properly, the body will have trouble regulating its temperature - i.e. cooling itself when it is warm and heating itself when it is cold. This could lead to feeling colder than one would normally when it is cold and feeling warmer than one would normally when it is warm. An abnormal decrease in norepinephrine levels has also been connected to short-term memory disturbances and depression.



    12. Production of the brain hormone melatonin has also been shown to be altered by exposure to microwaves. This brain hormone and antioxidant is necessary for proper sleep. 42 million (approximately one in five) Americans now take sleep medication for insomnia. A drop in melatonin levels has also been connected with increases in breast cancer.



    13. A drop in the levels of the brain hormone, dopamine, has also been shown to be connected with microwave radiation exposure. A drop in dopamine levels have been linked with depression.



    14. Exposure to electromagnetic radiation has been shown to affect an abnormal drop in the levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which has been linked to a number of neurological and neuromuscular disorders - including Alzheimer's disease.



    15. Some electromagnetic frequencies have been shown to induce restlessness and hence may very well also be responsible for a syndrome called restless leg syndrome (RLS).



    16. Electromagnetic fields- like those emitted by cell phones - have been shown to alter regional cerebral blood flow. In conditions like autism and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) it has been shown via SPECT (Single Proton Emission Computed Tomography) scans that there is a decreased flow of blood to the brain.



    17. Numerous studies have connected microwave and other electromagnetic radiation exposure to an increase in allergies. Microwave exposure has been shown to turn on mast cells to produce more histamine - the chemical responsible for allergic reactions, and other electromagnetic fields have been shown to actually increase the number of mast cells in the body. Microwaves have also been found to increase Immunoglobulin antibodies in the body. Immunoglobulin antibodies are responsible for triggering an allergic reaction to a particular substance.



    18. Microwave exposure has also been shown to adversely affect the heart and could very well be responsible for triggering heart attacks.



    19. Exposure to microwave radiation has also been shown to affect an abnormal increase in nitric oxide (NO). One theory holds that an abnormal increase in cellular calcium will also lead to an abnormal increase in cellular NO, which in excess produces a damage-producing free radical or oxidant called peroxynitrite.



    20. Microwave exposure has been shown to open the blood brain barrier (BBB). The blood brain barrier protects the brain from foreign - like viral and bacterial - and toxic substances in the blood which may injure the brain. Thus, exposure to microwave radiation could very well open people up to viral and bacterial infections of the brain which they would not normally get without the microwave exposure.
