Mobile phones and radiation.
Commenting on a Health Protection Agency press release in September 2009, Dr Andrew Goldsworthy wrote an excellent overview of the current situation as seen by the authorities and by the somewhat less complacent scientists working in the area – and even suggests a way forward. It provides an excellent introduction to the subject.
The signals from the tetra phone masts that power the communications systems for the police and emergency services are not only more powerful than the standard phone mast signals, but they are 'modulated' in such a way as they can penetrate thick buildings, and do so 24/7. Unfortunately this modulation interferes with the brain wavepatterns of the human sleep cycle –and therefore the sleep patterns of anyone within their ambit. An excellent post from Inspired Choice. 11/11
