Mobiles and ADHD
EMR Australia, Saturday, May 28, 2016

Smart phones are contributing to symptoms of ADHD, according to a study from the University of British Columbia. Scientists asked volunteers to reduce their use of a mobile phone one one occasion and to use their phones as normal on another and then asked them to perform a battery of tests. They found that the more frequently people were interrupted by their mobile phones, the less attentive they became and the more hyperactive. The findings have implications for society in gene  read more

Mobile-cancer link firmed
EMR Australia, Thursday, May 26, 2016

The results of a ten-year research project by the US National Toxicology Program (NTP) have shown that mobile phone radiation increased cancer rates in animals. The program was undertaken to test the idea that mobile phone radiation did not cause health problems. The reverse was, in fact, found. The scientists exposed rats to radiation from GSM and CDMA mobile phones over a two-year period. The animals developed increased rates of glioma brain tumours and schwannoma heart tumours.

Smart phones and ipads affect memory
EMR Australia, Tuesday, May 17, 2016

Using wireless devices such as smart phones and ipads had a negative effect on memory and learning in a study which has implications for wireless classrooms. The research, conducted by Professor Geoff Kaurman, found that people absorbed information more effectively from printouts than from the screen. You can see more about this study here.

EMF and testosterone
EMR Australia, Thursday, April 28, 2016

Workers exposed to high magnetic fields in a power plant had reduced levels of testosterone and this could affect their reproductive function, said researchers. Wang, Z et al, 'Effects of electromagnetic fields on serum lipids in workers of a power plant', Environ Sci Pollut Res Int. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26423285#) 2016 Feb;23(3):2495-504. doi: 10.1007/s11356-015-5500-9.   read more

The spine an antenna
EMR Australia, Monday, April 25, 2016

The spinal cord acts like an antenna to receive electromagnetic fields, according to researchers from California. From their modelling, the scientists concluded that the spinal cord conducts external fields, with maximum effect observed in the FM radio band at approximately 100 MHz. At that frequency, the internal fields were sufficiently strong to potentially affect the central nervous system and breach the blood-brain-barrier.

Infertility
EMR Australia, Tuesday, April 19, 2016

A study just published in the Journal of Impotence Research has found that mobile phone radiation damages sperm potentially contributing to infertility. The researchers studied a group of 286 men attending an infertility clinic, who had normal or slightly reduced semen concentration levels. They found that men who used a mobile phone for more than ten years had DNA damage which could reduce their ability to father children. Other factors that contributed to DNA damage in the study we  read more

Wireless radiation, vitamin D and autoimmune diseases
EMR Australia, Monday, April 18, 2016

Wireless radiation could be contributing to the symptoms of autoimmune, says Professor Trevor Marshall. In his presentation the 10th International Congress on Autoimmunity in Leipzig on April 7, Professor Marshall referred to conditions of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, from which many people with electromagnetic hypersensitivity suffer. According to Professor Martin Pall, these three conditions may have a common mechanism of action. Professor Marshall explained that the   read more

Magnetic fields and power lines
EMR Australia, Sunday, April 17, 2016

Here's lovely feedback from a customer wondering whether to purchase a home near a high voltage power line and who hired our magnetic field meter to measure the fields from the line. 'Brilliant! Well worth the cost of hiring. Very helpful in helping us to decide on buying a house near an electricity stancheon. Thank you very much!' We're so pleased the meter helped with this decision. You can see more about hiring a meter to measure the fields from power lines, substations   read more

Wearable fitness devices
EMR Australia, Saturday, April 16, 2016

They're supposed to improve fitness and health, but here's a case where a wearable fitness device actually worsened the wearer's health. In 2014 a lady from Queensland bought a fitness armband with wireless function, designed to track the number of steps she took each day, and wore it continually, only taking it off once a week to charge it. Soon after, she developed serious problems. She experienced enormous fluctuations in blood pressure, dizziness, severe depression, mood swings,   read more
