The Next Step - Professor Martin Pall

EMR Australia - Thursday, October 08, 2015

There is abundant evidence that wireless radiation produces nonthermal effects on the body, yet international standards only recognise its thermal effects. This leaves not only individuals unprotected, but also the companies that manufacture wireless products, says Professor Martin Pall, writing in the September issue of the International Journal of Innovative Research in Engineering and Management.

In his paper, Pall documents a large body of scientific evidence for nonthermal effects and the mechanism he has identified whereby EMR activates exquisitely sensitive voltage sensors in the cell membrane which control the opening of voltage gated calcium channels to allow calcium to flood into the cell (see page 3). This mechanism, he said, could explain a wide range of biological symptoms identified in the scientific literature.

Current standards are inadequate, Pall says, because they ignore these nonthermal effects. They also ignore four very important characteristics of wireless radiation that determine how a signal impacts on the body. These are pulsation, polarisation, frequency and windows of effect. ‘All of these things .... argue compellingly that we cannot predict biological effects based simply on the intensity of EMFs and certainly not on heating effects of EMFs,’ he said.

What’s needed, Pall argued, is studies that test how EMF affects cell lines with high levels of voltage gated calcium channels.

He also encouraged industry to take pulsation, polarisation, frequencies and windows of effect into consideration when developing and manufacturing electronic devices. Doing so, could give them a marketing edge, he said.
