Do you worry about Dirty Electricity when you go car shopping? EMF Health Effect Research

I'm in the market for a new automobile. I don't think my current GM model has much life left in it after only 160,000 miles, bad transmission sensor, think the full pump is about to expire. I really wanted to get a hybrid, with the Toyota Prius being at the top of the list. In doing my due diligence research I changed my mind because the Prius seems to suffer from the problem of 'Dirty Electrcity'.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_Prius:

"The Prius has been known to emit excessively high electromagnetic fields. ICNIRP guidelines stipulate that the maximum long term exposure should not exceed 1mG but the Prius measures higher than 24mG in some locations, such as the rear right seat. ICNIRP guidelines are not law in many (if any) countries. The World Health Organization in conjunction with the ICNIRP conducted a study and found levels above 3mG contribute to a child's risk of developing leukemia. At 12mG, the electromagnetic radiation is so strong it's able to block the body's ability to inhibit cancers (in this case breast cancer) using melatonin. The Toyota Prius exceeds 12mG (up to 24mG) in some areas of the cabin. However Toyota claims that the Prius emits similar fields to conventional gasoline vehicles. The high voltage power cable from the traction battery and the forward electric drive motor/generator passes directly under the drivers seat."

In my blog on EMP I covered the work of the late Dr. Robert Becker, which I think it is important enough to repeat here:

I can not stress enough that anyone interested in the medical research field and/or the effects of our ever increasing exposure to EMF's, must read The Body Electric: Electromagnetism and the Foundation of Life by the late Robert Becker and Gary Selden. All research in the field starts here. One key point worth mentioning is that Becker's research showed that low power signals of the same frequency had biological effects that higher power levels of the same signals did not have.


 

Some will assume that because that work was done decades ago that the issues have been solved by now, alas not, which leads us to the relatively new book Dirty Electricity: Electrification and the Diseases of Civilization by Samuel Milham MD MPH. Dr. Milham covers the research since the time of Dr. Becker.

Less you think that health problems are limited to power lines and hybrid batteries, we must wonder what our modern wireless society is doing to our health and that of future generations as we design our fancy new Embedded Systems. There have been a few voices crying warnings in the wilderness such as my friend Dr. Nick Begich, who in 1999 wrote Cell Phone Convenience or 21st Century Plague? along with my friend the late James Roderick, that was originally published in 1999 in Explore! magazine, followed by the book Earth Rising II: The Betrayal of Science, Society and the Soul in 2002.

Here in 2010 we find Should You Be Snuggling With Your Cellphone? by Randall Stross. [The text is also available from the Risk Digest, should you find the previous link behind a pay-wall.]

Microwave News is a good place to stay up to date on what is happening in the health versus wireless technology arena. For example this obscure report released on the 21st of December 2010 in Epidemiology.

We should not fall into the cynical trap thinking that all EMF exposures are bad. In the early part of the twenty century before the American Medical Association and Big Pharma corrupted health care, there was a thriving Electromedicine Community. As far back as the time of Tesla we can find items like his Violet Ray. A glass tube filled with Argon that gives off a purplish glow when it is plugged in. Mine is extremely noisy and the smell of Ozone waif's through the air, so I don't use it much. The Inert Gas FAQ may interest you as well as the out of print book Einstein Doesn't Work Here Anymore by Maurice B. Cooke, should you be interested in such things.

Perhaps the best document work of lost Electromedicine knowledge is the work of Royal Raymond Rife as documented in Barry Lynes book The Cancer Cure That Worked: 50 Years of Suppression.
