Why do symptoms such as fatigue, headaches and poor concentration often result from cell phone radiation exposure?
A recent study performed by the Weston A Price Foundation just might have the answer.
Firstly, what do we know about radiation exposure?
- The World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radio frequency electromagnetic fields as possible carcinogenics.
- In 2011, the WHO estimated that 3-6% of the worlds population suffers from Electro-Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS). EHS is defined as the experiencing of certain symptoms upon exposure to electromagnetic fields. Some of the more common symptoms experienced are headaches, fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, skin rashes, ringing in the ears, and poor concentration.
So, why does exposure to radiation put the body in a stressed state?
According to the Weston A Price study, the answer is in the blood.
The Weston Price Organization recently funded a small study on the short term effects of cell phone radiation on the blood.
Using 10 subjects of various ages, live blood cell analysis was performed on these subjects before being exposed to cell phone radiation and then after.
The results on the study showed that exposure to cell phone radiation resulted in marked changes in 9 out of 10 subject’s blood.
How was the blood affected by the cell phone radiation?
- Clumping- Instead of each blood cell staying separate from other cells, which allows for proper blood flow, the cells became sticky and clumped together.
- Misshapen Cells- Cells should be round. After exposure to cell phone radiation, the cells become irregular in shape.
After 45 minutes of a subject carrying a Smart Phone in a backpack kept in receiving mode, the subject’s blood became sticky and started to clump. After an additional 45 minutes and active use of the Smart Phone, changes in blood cell shape became visible. The once round blood cells became irregular in shape.
Based on the results of the study, it seems that the blood first reacts to cell phone radiation by becoming sticky and clumping. Continued exposure resulted in the clumps separating and the cells taking on irregular shapes.
Sticky and misshapen blood cells will result in an increase in blood viscosity. This increase in viscosity can impede blood flow and hinder circulation. Fatigue, headaches and poor concentration are just some of the possible effects of hindered blood flow. These symptoms correlate with those cited by the WHO as defining EHS.
Of course, sticky blood and lowered circulation can have much more deleterious effects on a person’s health, resulting in various forms of cardiovascular disease.
