Last month a government study determined that U.S. Embassy workers stationed in China and Cuba were likely harmed by exposure to pulsed microwave energy.  The source of the exposure has yet to be determined.

Of course pulsed microwave energy aka microwave radiation is also emitted by common sources of “Smart” and/or wireless technology:  cell phones, cell towers, personal and “Smart” home appliances, devices and, wearables (see 123), utility “Smart” meters (electric, gas, and water), WiFi routers and more.

Dr. Devra Davis explains why we should be concerned about exposure from these common sources causing brain damage and other serious health issues as well.

National Academies of Sciences: Pulsed-microwave radiation likely caused brain damage in US Diplomats

In these worrying times, when a highly contagious virus has ended life as we once knew it, we increasingly rely on wireless gadgets. Without a doubt, our capacity to respond to crises is enhanced, but life is now lived as if each moment is an emergency. So just how safe are these now-ubiquitous, 2-way microwave-radiating essential devices and the networks on which they rely?

Few parents or teachers appreciate that buried in all these devices are manufacturer statements that they are not to be used on the bodies of adults or that children absorb proportionately more microwave cell phone radiation.

Now a bombshell analysis from the National Academy of Sciences has added fuel to the fire, concluding that many of the distinctive and acute signs, symptoms, and observations of puzzling permanent brain damage reported by American diplomats in Cuba and China “are consistent with the effects of directed, pulsed radiofrequency (R.F.) energy [microwave radiation].”

Of course, the devil is in the details. The extensively reviewed Academy report does not speculate on who may have directed what pulsed electromagnetic weapons against American and Canadian diplomats. Still, a few matters are clear: phones and brain-damaging weapons can employ the same microwave frequencies.

The cold reality is that the fastest-growing markets for microwave-radiating devices in America today are infants, toddlers, and schoolchildren. Of course, exposures from phones and tablets are not as high intensity as weapons, but that does not ensure their safety. Because children have immature brains, skulls, and immune systems, we take certain steps to protect them from bike or car crashes. We should do the same to minimize the impact of any microwave radiation on their young, fast-growing bodies or brains.

Professor of medicine at the University of California San Diego, Beatrice Golomb MD PhD published an important paper on this topic in 2018, concluding that “A tremendous number of physicians and scientists and entities and scientific studies and government reports, in many nations, over many decades, have identified that RF/MW causes symptoms consistent with the spectrum now described for diplomats.”

This is not mere speculation. New reports from a respected European consortium found that teens that use cell phones the most absorb the most radiation into their brains and have relatively smaller brain caudate volumes. Another replicated European study also found just one year of cell phone use damaged memory in teens.

Patterns of cancer in young adults provide suggestive and disturbing evidence that microwave radiating devices may underlie unexplained surges in cancer of the kidney, cervix, thyroid, colon, and rectum in young adults– parts of the body that are most exposed to cellphones and wireless devices today. One paper speculates that phones in pockets could in part account for the quadrupled risk of rectal cancer in the past decade in those under age 40 in both the U.S. and Iran.
