This week we feature the National Bestseller, The Art of Possibility by Rosamund Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander, (2000, Penguin Press).  Take a look at my thoughts:





Wake Up Call Part 2; no more snooze buttons!

19 10 2009

In the second of what will be an ongoing investigation into the safety of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and cell phone use, this second part is some hard evidence used by researchers to show the effects of cell phone EMFs on the blood.  Notice that the blood cells are completely free of added cell phone EMFs for a 24-hour period.  In this six-minute film, the experiment is shot in time lapse over a 30-minute period.  Notice the progression of blood cells under the influence of cell phones moves from a healthy states to a weaker more degenerative state.  This means that blood cells slow down, become erratic, and die quicker.  The health impacts lead to a number of other related symptoms, from fatigue, headaches, damaged DNA, and tumors or cancer.  The verdict is still out on the future of cell phones in regards to the health risks they cause.  This video shows some pretty alarming evidence that there is some impact being felt by the body’s systems.   Part 3 of this series will discuss possible remedies that don’t include putting your cell phone in a casket.  Please leave a comment about this story.  What do you think?  Are EMFs something to be worried about?  Why doesn’t the government issue a warning?

Annotated remarks regarding this film:

live blood analysis using a mobile phone for 30 minuts.
Blood samples taken at 5, 17 and 29 minutes interval.
Use nonstop mobile phone to the head for 29 minutes.

The test person didnot use a mobile phone for 24hr before the start of this test.

You can see in this movie:

0:03
First blood tests before using the mobile phone.
The test person started to call with the mobile phone.

0:13
Second blood test after 6 minutes using the mobile phone.
Continuously using the mobile phone

0:50
Then third blood test taken after 17 minutes using the mobile phone.
Continuing using the mobile phone

4:33
And the last test after using the mobile phone for 29 minutes.

The original video was taken in 1 piece uninterupted for 34 minutes .
The video you see here are the clips when the camera turned to the blood test images on the microscope screen.

We used the HC-4000 live microscope.
This test can be repeated and replicated with the same results.
After 17 minutes the blood can be compared with someone with severe flu. Fever.

Here a explanation wat is going on at cell level.

note:
A lot of Physicians do know what is happening here.
But they are afraid to be “executed” because of the financial power of the telecom industry.
We guarantee them anonymity after giving their information.

They can buy WHO and ICNIRP, but us victims are not for sale!
