Why Is Wireless Technlolgy Dangerous ? (Part 1)

Why is wireless technology dangerous? We won't be able to cover this topic in one blog posting so this will be a multi-post answer. In our last message we explored a little as to why current saftey standards for cell phones are meaningless. If you haven't read that post you should. So let's build on it.

Just as a reminder, the danger from cell phones is not from a thermal, or heating effect, like you have with a microwave oven. It's what the radiation wave is doing to the cell that is the problem, and it has nothing to do with heat. Cell phones don't have enough power to heat tissue.

Most cell phones operate in a range of 800 MHz to 1900 MHz (that's one million nine hundred thousand cycles per second). Frequencies oscillating this fast are not recognized by the body. These frequencies are simply moving way to fast for the body to know it's even there. This is the same signal that connects your cellphone to the nearest cell phone tower. It's not the problem because it isn't recognized. This goes for any wireless device, not just cell phones.

When we talk or send a text message on a cell phone our voice or text message is placed on the radiation wave in the form of "packets" of information. These packets ride "piggy-back" on the radiation wave and their existence necessitates the creation of a second radiation wave just for the purpose of carrying information. This second wave is called the information-carrying radio wave, or ICRW. The ICRW oscillates at a 60 Hz frequency which IS in the range that the body does recognize. (There's a big difference between 1900 MHz and 60 Hz.) Since this second wave oscillates much slower it can be, and is, recognized by our cells. So the ICRW is the wave that's doing the damage.

In the next succeeding posts we'll learn exactly what that damage is and what happens to our cells and our bodies when they're exposed to this second wave, or ICRW. So keep reading. We'll keep it simple. This isn't rocket science or brain surgery.
