- Blood Brain Barrier– The first study was conducted by Dr. Allan Frey (1975) (who already proved the “Auditory Effect” / “Frey Effect<” of non-thermal Microwave Radiation) – The study found that (1) non-thermal levels of microwave radiation can break the blood brain barrier (BBB) (2) the main cause of the adverse effects are from the modulation rather than the carrier wave - Neural function and behavior: defining the relationship. The Swedish Neuro-Scientist, Dr. Lai Salford confirmed Frey's study regarding the BBB. He conducted further studies on the various effects of this radiation on the brain. Summary by Arthur Firstenberg from Cellular Phone Task Force about Salford's work and link to his studies.
- Bioinitiative Report (2012) - The Bioinitiative report is the most comprehensive review of studies on biological effects caused by EMFs. It was prepared by 30 world-leading scientists and public health professionals. The authors reviewed 3000 peer reviewed studies on EMF's, including about 1,800 on the effects of wireless radiation. Their conclusion: "Bio-effects can also occur from just minutes of exposure to mobile phone masts (cell towers), Wi-Fi, and wireless utility ‘smart’ meters that produce whole-body exposure". – Color Charts of Sample Studies of Reported Biological Effects from Radiofrequency Radiation at Low-Intensity Exposures.

- Microwave Sickness – Belyaev et al (2016) - EUROPAEM EMF Guideline 2016 For the Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment of EMF-Related Health Problems and Illnesses. Microwave Sickness is the more accurate name for electro-sensitivity (ES). It is the most widespread manifestation of illness from wireless radiation with mainly neurological symptoms. At least 10% of the population has already developed the condition; the rates are likely much higher. In 2016, the EMF working group of the European Academy for Environmental Medicine (EUROPAEM) published guidelines, which include a review of the science of Electro-Sensitivity and instructions for doctors on how to diagnose and treat ES. It is important to know that Microwave Sickness is Recognized under the ICD-10 as ‘Radiation Sickness’ and was acknowledged by various government agencies as a disability.

- Oxidative Stress Mechanism – Meta Analysis Paper - Yakymenko (2015) – This analysis shows that 93 out of 100 studies show wireless radiation causes oxidative stress, a mechanism that can lead to cancer, non-cancer diseases, and DNA damage. This study disproves the wireless industry’s misleading statements that there are no mechanisms by which non-thermal levels of wireless radiation can affect the body. It also disproves the industry contentions that "the overwhelming majority of studies show no effects". Oxidative Mechanisms of Biological Activity of Low-Intensity Radiofrequency Radiation

The Ramazzini Study – The Ramazinni study is a 6 million Euro study conducted by the Ramazzinin Institute in Italy. The study is similar to the NTP study with one major difference – while the NTP study used levels of radiation similar to those emitted from a cell phone, the Ramazzini used levels of radiation 6,000 times lower, which are more like the levels of radiation we get from further away cell towers. The results were the same as the results of the NTP.
- NTP Study – On Nov. 1 2018, the final report of the results of the $30 million 14-year study of the National Toxicology Program (NTP) of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) was published and determined the study showed CLEAR EVIDENCE that cell phones cause cancer and breaks the DNA. This is the biggest study of its kind. A peer review panel of 11 scientists confirmed the findings of "clear evidence" on March 28, 2018. Read about the study on SaferEMR.com Website: National Toxicology Program Finds Cell Phone Radiation Causes Cancer. We now have the government study that proves beyond a doubt the harm of wireless technology and it should be a game changer. The public must be warned and protected. Dr. Ron Melnik, PhD, Senior Toxicologist and Director of Special Programs in the (NIEHS), who lead the study until he retired, said in 2016: "The NTP tested the hypothesis that cell phone radiation could not cause health effects and that hypothesis has now been disproved. The experiment has been done and, after extensive reviews, the consensus is that there was a carcinogenic effect”. In regard to the DNA damage findings, Dr. Melnik stated that the results of the study: “should put to rest the old argument that RF radiation cannot cause DNA damage”.

- Purchasing a Meter to Measure Wireless Radiation - There are various meters on the market. Each has advantages and disadvantageous. Zen recommends the Safe and Sound Pro II by Safe Living if you can afford $400. It s the most accurate because it has a high frequency of readings and measures the peak of the waves, and does not just show you the average. Dafna's personal favorite (more affordable) is Cornet ED88T Plus. Dafna like it because it is small and easy to carry everywhere. It also has the good features - lights, sound, graph, it shows the frequency and measures not only the radiation from wireless devices but also the electric and magnetic fields of the house electricity (low frequencies). It is the best value for the money and quite accurate. Other popular meters are the Acoustimeter and the Trifield. PLEASE do not buy the meter on Amazon but rather from activists who have also a side business of selling such products to help support their efforts. For example - you can buy from Josh Hart at StopSmartMeters.Org. Josh has led the movement against smart meters and he is also in California. If you mention Dafna he will give you a discount. Another website of an activist who is doing a great job is 4EHSbyEHS.com. There are many others.

California Specific Information
- California Medical Association (CMA) Resolution on Wireless Standards Reevaluation (2014) Resolution 107- 14 - The California Medical Association passed a resolution stating that our current safety standards are not adequate to protect public health and need to be revised to take into account non-thermal biological effect. Its resolve states: "CMA support efforts to implement new safety exposure limits for wireless devices to levels that do not cause human or environmental harm based on scientific research." In this resolution CMA acknowledges that “… peer reviewed research has demonstrated adverse biological effects of wireless EMF including single and double stranded DNA breaks, creation of reactive oxygen species, immune dysfunction, cognitive processing effects, stress protein synthesis in the brain, altered brain development, sleep and memory disturbances, ADHD, abnormal behavior, sperm dysfunction, and brain tumors…” CA Medical Association is the only medical association that passed such a resolution.
- LA Firefighters & Cell Towers - in 2005, The International Firefighters Union, representing over 300,000 firefighters recognized wireless microwave radiation health effects and has stood strongly against locating cell towers on top of their fire stations; 28 page International Association of Fire Fighters Resolution detailing health effects associated with exposure to wireless microwave radiation and reported symptoms of their exposed firefighters. The document states numerous health effects were found to be caused by wireless radiation. The resolution was a result of complaints by firefighters of headaches, memory problems, sleeping problems, anxiety following the installation of cell towers at their fire stations. Brain scans of the firefighters in 2005 showed abnormalities. The results of these abnormal brain scans were summarized in a letter written to the FCC in 2013. California Assembly Bill AB57, which passed on October 9, 2015, exempts fire stations from having transmitting devices on their facilities. The 5G Bill SB 649 which was vetoed by Governor Brown included an exemption for firefighters.
- Medical Studies From CA: Divan (2010) – "Cell Phone Use and Behavioral Problems in Young Children" - Two of the top universities in California, UCLA along with USC, completed an National Institute of Health (NIH) funded study showing that pregnant women using cell phones had children with more behavioral problems. This was a repeat of a study previously done in Europe, showing its validity. Another recently published study was done on 83,000 women showing the same results.
- CA Department of Public Health (CDPH) Cell Phone Safety Guidelines (2017) - In December 2017, the California Department of Public Health became the first US State Department of Health to publish guidelines on how to reduce exposure to radiofrequency from cell phones cell phones. However, sadly the story behind the publication of the guidelines exposes the outrageous failure of those entrusted to protect our health, likely because of fear of industry. In 2014 Dr. Joel Moskowitz, Director of the Center for Family and Community Health, School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley, submitted 3 requests to the CDPH under the California Public Records Act for this information. All three requests were denied. In 2016, the UC Berkeley School of Law, Environmental Law Clinic and the First Amendment Project filed a lawsuit on his behalf in the Sacramento Superior Court. On May 12, 2017, CA Attorney General’s office released the drafts. Shockingly it was discovered that since 2009 and until 2015, the California Department of Public Health prepared 27 versions of a cell phone radiation safety fact sheet but never released them to the public. In December 2017 it officially published the guidelines. Needless to say the guidelines are inadequate, full of fear of telling the truth and also give bad advice such as encouraging the use of bluetooth headphone. The story was covered by the San Francisco Chronicles “New records show how state reworked secret cell phone warnings”
