Biological Measurement and SAR

Professor Carl Blackman is a man I admire. His chapter in The Bioinitiative Report ahows his deep thoughtfulness and ability to understand the nature of the mechanisms by which EMF damages children and all living systems whose control systems depend on frequencies similar to the EMF mechanically generated frequencies.

Prof. Blackman states:

"The sensitivity of today's state-of-the-art measuring equipment is still considerably inferior to that of living cells (a difference of 109, i.e. a factor of one billion)."

As far back as 1991, Prof. Carl Blackman (USA) a contributor to the Bioinitiative report asked that results obtained on “biological models” be acknowledged since they are the only ones that are sensitive enough to demonstrate the harmful effects of ELF

(editor... ELF frequencies are a part of the EMF spectrum of frequencies)

As Low As Reasonably Achievable

The Interphone Study reported by Bruce Armstrong is an international well documented study of EMF effects. As I understand the response It is considered by non industry scientists to be an effort to reduce public attention to the problem of e smog etc contamination.For example they have averaged out test results on all telephone users regardless of the length of time they have used mobiles. This dilutes the effects that come from longer (versus shorter) use. But here is one report of the results:

Bruce Armstrong advocates ALARA, especially for children and cell phone use" was written on the November 13, 2008 at 7:21 pm on "EMFacts Consultancy".

The following is a preliminary report from Sarah Benson, who attended
the ACRBR seminar 'Unplugged and Uncertain' on 12 November.

Dear All

Yesterday I attended the Australian Centre for RF Bioeffects
Research's seminar 'Unplugged and Uncertain' at Swinburne University
in Melbourne. This seminar was attended by about 100 industry,
community and media people.

Professor Bruce Armstrong, head of Sydney University's School of
Public Health and cancer expert, presented the Interphone results as
they exist so far. The details of the various types of tumour and the
survey results and methodology went over my head, but he concluded
that due to the overall raised rates of glioma tumour incidence he was
advocating that the ALARA principle (As Low As Reasonably Achievable)
be implemeted, especially when it comes to children. He also said
that more research was needed.

This is the first time in Australia that someone in a position of such
authority has come out and made such a strong statement - and he
repeated it several times.

The forum also covered other areas, such as domestic radiation levels
and teh ELF issues. Electrosensitivity was raised by one questionner,
and answered in full by the panel.
