Other EMF symptoms include: Eyestrain, headaches, inability to concentrate, neck-aches, irritability, depression, memory loss, weakened immune system and, in more extreme cases, birth defects and leukemia in children. Children, unfortunately, are especially susceptible to EMFs.

In 1989, the Electric Power Research Institute praised the methodology of a power line study which linked leukemia, prostate and other cancers in young men with chronic exposure to magnetic fields.

Electrical pollution is a subtle pollutant that is slowly harming us. This energy comes through the breaker box and is carried through the electrical wiring to, appliances and electronic equipment in the home. Have you thought what might be on the other side of your electrical box? It could be your bedroom, child's room or a major appliance. Are you having a problem going to sleep, sleeping or waking up in the night? This could be a sign of EMF pollution.

High EMF's can come from such items as TV's, electrical blankets, toasters, baby monitors, office equipment, shop tools, digital clock radios, baseboard heaters, microwave ovens and waterbed heaters.

In November, 1989, the Department of Energy reported that "It has now become generally accepted that there are indeed Biological effects due to magnetic field exposure."

Martin Halper, a director of the E.P.A., said in a Fortune Magazine article on magnetic radiation: "In all my years of looking at chemicals, I have never seen a set of epidemiological studies that remotely approached the weight of evidence that we're seeing with ELF electromagnetic fields. Clearly there is something here." (Fortune, Dec. 1990)

An EPA draft report, 1990, recommended that EMF's be considered a Class B carcinogen. This class included formaldehyde, DDT, dioxins, and PCB's. In a later watered down version, the reference to Class B was deleted, with an explanation that said the basic interaction between EM fields and biological interactions leading to cancer are not understood. Yet, in the same report, they suggest there is a causal link between leukemia, lymphoma and cancer in children with exposure to magnetic fields from residential 60hertz distribution systems!

That was over ten years ago. The increase in electric and microwave use for telecommunications has created an environment of electrical pollution that permeates every home, workplace, park and playground.

In what is probably the largest study ever conducted on EMF exposure, researchers in Sweden announced in 1992, they had determined a dose-response relationship between exposure to EMFs from power-distribution lines and childhood leukemia.

In the summer of 1996, a U.S. Federal Court ruled that citizens may not bring suit against electric power companies over electromagnetic radiation emissions. Dr. David Carpenter, dean of public health at SUNY in Albany, N.Y., headed the utility industry's New York Power Lines Project, a five million dollar review of the carcinogenicity of magnetic fields. According to Dr. Carpenter, "The Savitz study changed my entire view of the field, and it has enormous implications." Fortune Magazine wrote: "Based of those results, he estimates that up to 30% of all childhood cancers may be attributable to ELF fields." "That's conservative," Dr. Carpenter added.

Breast Cancer Risk in Women: Occupational Exposure to 60-HertzMagnetic Fields-147 reports from 115 independent studies- Summary was that associations with breast cancer were found- strongest for women who worked in offices and in the telephone industry. For example, women electrical engineers have a 73% greater risk of dying from breast cancer.

Of 35 international research studies on electric field radiation, 33 established a conclusive link between brain tumors, leukemia, and other forms of cancer.

Scientists in Russia have done more studies on EMF than any other country and for decades have been reporting that electric fields cause high blood pressure, chronic stress effects, immune system dysfunction, changes in white and red blood cell counts, increased metabolism, chronic fatigue disorders, and headaches.
