New Video - Wired Air Tube Earpiece for cellphone,

If use correctly (the cellphone needs to be as far as possible from the body) the wired air tube earpiece can reduce the user exposure while talking on the phone. The use of the speaker phone function will bring a similar reduction but is not always possible (please press here to see more info about radiation reduction while using a cell phone). In addition, in these ear piece there is no tiny speaker in your ear, so there is no ELF magnetic-electric field exposure (will allow EHS people to listen to music via the ear piece without any pain or ear pressure). The following video shows the reduction effect in compression to regular wired ear.

Active RF tracking devices in Hospitals (including on newborns)

Yesterday I talked to one of my former managers (from my time at the high tech industry). He is asked me some questions about measuring low radiation RF devices. During this conversation I was reminded that in hospitals and clinics around the globe, including Israel, there is a growing use of WIFI based devices and equipment. Including in nurseries. This was something I new about but that I would rather forget. The medical system is going through a wireless revolution of it's own. Back around 2000, doctors in hospitals in Israel were issued GSM cellphones (which they were still in use in 2014 when my younger doughtier was born). Around that time micro-cells antennas were deployed in all hospitals in Israel.


In the picture bellow - micro cells of 3 criers installed in
 the corridors of Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center (Ichilov) 


  hospital, Israel 2012



Bellow - Dect Cordless phone on the reception desk of the 
labor & Delivery registration unit in Tel Aviv Sourasky 
Medical Center (Ichilov) hospital, Israel 2012



Between 2012 (when my older doughier was born) and 2014, WIFI routers were deployed in the hospitals, to be followed with the use of wireless laptops and tablets (by the medical crew).

  Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center (Ichilov) hospital, Israel 2014

  Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center (Ichilov) hospital, Israel 2014


Now I learned that there are WIFI based tracking safety tags and bracelets that allow the medical team to track the were-about of the patients and their basic medical status. I also learned that they are used on newborns. A quick search of the internet presented several videos about such devices.




Even that the need seems to be realistic and important, I am sure this can be done with passive or none RF technology. I my self am very worried from the use of RF emitting devices and heavy exposure to RF in Hospitals. But in the world that everything is going wireless, which people are addicted to their WIFI and cellphones while unaware of the possible health risk, where kids are given a cellphone or tablet since they are 3 mounts old ("look at him operating this thing, mommy's genius") , when WIFI and wireless technology are present in every house, building, public space, public transportation and mistakenly identified as progress, this type of thing is bond to happen.

GLOBES - ERICSON ISRAEL will supply 200000 smart meters to the electric company

According to GLOBES , ERICSON ISRAEL will supply 200000 smart meters to the Israeli Electric Company to be deployed in 4 cities across Israel. More of these meter will be in PLC technology that passes the information on to the electric wires and can create more dirty electricity.  About 15% of the meters , mainly for businesses , will use cellular modem and will transmit a total of 15 minutes per 24 hours (probably spread over the 24 hours, few seconds every couple of minutes).
In the article it is noted that this wider pilot come after a smaller pilot in Benyamina and Givat Ada that raised some rejections from the public over radiation, extra billing, security and privacy issues.

Rubin's study on Electromagnetic Hyper Sensitivity - Detailed & criticizing analysts

Few years back I wrote a criticizing post about the faulty study of PhD James Rubin about EHS .
Following the last few days (shaming of an Israeli EHS person and an Interview given by a researcher on BBC Sussex radio who claimed EHS is not related to exposure) I wrote an additional post regarding this study - http://norad4u.blogspot.com/2017/02/phd-james-rubins-study-on-ehs-hurt-ehs.html

Tonight (09/02/2017), following a Facebook conversation with an EHS person, I found the time to create a detailed analysts of this study, the methods used, the results and finding an the conclusions. I  hope that those of you who read it will find it logical and will be able to better argue the case for EHS recognition and will understand what is so wrong with Rubin study and conclusions.

Key points in the study:
  1. 3 types of exposures were done in this study
    a. to a GSM signal
    b. to a continues wave emitted from the device antenna.
    c. to a continues wave redirected to internal load in the device.
    The last was suppose to be a "sham exposure" but was actually exposure to Extreme Low Frequency and Mid Frequency electric and magnetic field in addition to some RF emission that was still present, at smaller level than the GSM or continues exposure but still an exposure.  The sham exposure was actually "Partial" or "lower" exposure.
  2. Every exposure was for 50 minutes.
    This is a long enough time for most mid and high severity EHS people to react with pains to the ELF + mid frequencies + lower RF exposure that was emitted from the device during what was supposed to be the "Sham exposure". 
  3. Before and after every exposure,  a 30 minute of adjustment and rest period was applied. During that time the subjects were asked to answer questions, give info and fill in questioners. After the exposure was done, they were asked about the symptoms and their experience during the exposure.
  4.  In this study 83 EHS people, and 69 non-EHS people took part .
  5. Out of which, 71 EHS people and 60 non-EHS people appeared for the first exposure test.
  6. Out of which 60 of each group concluded all the 3 exposure. 
Result Summary:
  1. Post analysis of the reports of headaches ( a main & frequent symptom in EHS people) showed that the pain increased during all 3 types of exposures, as the time of exposure grew longer, and decreased after the exposure ended.
    The headaches were stronger (a lot stronger) in the EHS group, but a slight increase during exposure was also seen in the control group of non-EHS people.
    In the following figure, out of the study, the trend clearly appears:
    כאבי ראש לפי החשיפה בתלות בזמן החשיפה ולפי קבוצות
  2. When you look at the graph that shows the headache servery over time per participant, it is also clearly seen that the EHS people suffers a lot more in every exposureכאבי ראש כתלות בחשיפה, רגישים מול בקרה
  3. 26 cases of  sever reaction were noticed only in the EHS group:
    9 subjects withdraw from the study entirely after an exposure.
    17 asked for early termination of the exposure.
    In the control group there were no such cases of withdraw or early termination. 
  4. Out of these 26 cases
    7 were after the GSM exposure.
    10 after the continues wave.
    9 after what was supposed to be the "sham exposure" (which was more of a "partial exposure" to ELF+Mid Frequencis and "low exposure" to RF). 
  5. Out of the people who withdraw , 4 did not say why.
  6. The next day after the exposure the subjects were asked about the "day after symptoms" .
  7. In the control group 0 out of 41 reported symptoms the next day after the GSM exposure,
    2 after the continues wave exposure,
    4 after what was supposed to be a sham exposure.
    In the EHS people group, 5 out of 49 reported symptoms the next day after GSM exposure,
    8 after the continues wave exposure (out of 49),
    4 after the faulty sham exposure (out of 49 that were asked).
  8. The subjects were ask if the think there was a transmission after each exposure.
    After the GSM exposure 63% of the EHS reported a transmission, compared to 58% in the control group.
    After the continues wave exposure 68% of the EHS reported a transmission, compared to 70% in the control group.
    After the faulty sham exposure(which was actually partial and lower exposure) 63% of the EHS reported a transmission, compared to 68% in the control group.
    To the full summary please see the table at - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1440612/table/tbl3/


My conclusions about the study and the results:

  1. The supposed to be "sham exposure" was not a "no radiation exposure". It was more of a "partial exposure" to ELF and mid Frequency electric and magnetic fields and a "lower exposure" to RF. Since the time of exposure  was long (50 minutes) it is only very logical that mid level and high level EHS will develop symptoms during the faulty sham exposure. 
  2. The "faulty sham exposure" is a basic technical mistake in the study, causing it's analysis and conclusion to have no real value.
    The assumption that the sham exposure was with not radiation was faulty.
    The researchers field to understand or notice the error in their study and concluded that the subjects reacted to a no radiation exposure when in fact there were reacting to a "partial" or "lower" exposure. 
  3. As in other faulty studies in this field, it is still possible to look at the data and results accumulated in the study and learn few things from them:
    1. Most EHS people withdraw from the study, or asked for an early termination because of symptoms, compered with the controlled group of non-EHS.
    2.  EHS subjects reacted with more sever headaches to the exposures.
    3. Both in the EHS and non-EHS groups, the severity of the headaches increased as the time of exposure prolong and decreased after it was ended (but in the EHS group the headaches were much sever). 
    4. In the EHS group there were more reports about headaches and symptoms in the day after the exposure. 
    5. Both in the EHS group and the non-EHS group, most of the subjects were able to identify the exposures (noticing the "sham exposure" was not relay a sham exposure). 
  4. When reading the study and the results in critique read and when understanding that the supposed to be sham exposure was not sham but actually a real exposure ( more of a "partial" or "lower" exposure ) it is easy to understand that the study results actually show that EHS people reacted more severity to the exposure (than the non-EHS people) and that the main symptom of an headache was caused and elevated by exposure to different types of radiation.

What is the base for the wrong conception that EHS as a psychosomatic issue

The following text was written by me after a post by noa, an EHS person from Israel, that told us that people laughed at her after she told them she was an EHS person and told here that EHS is a psychosomatic issue.

The wrong conception that EHS as a psychosomatic issue is driven from a comment that PhD James Rubin entered to his problematic study about EHS people. In this study he exposed the subjects to several types or radiation even when there was supposed to be no radiation (sham exposure). When they reacted(most subjects reacted , not just EHS people) he then wrongly concluded that the cause was the fear from the device used and not the radiation exposure, which I remind you was not zero.
Now his study was adopted by industry and the WHO and the comment become the consensus. The study got lots of PR and Rubin continue to publish article on this subject. To my knowledge he still does not acknowledge what he did wrong, or refusing to do so as he based his carrier on the disproving of EHS.
We EHS are suffering daily from many types of EMF, and in addition form the misconception created by Rubin and his followers. PhD James Rubin's study on EHS hurts EHS people around the world every day.

This is the text from the study:
"RESULTS:
Headache severity increased during exposure and decreased immediately afterwards. However, no strong evidence was found of any difference between the conditions in terms of symptom severity. Nor did evidence of any differential effect of condition between the two groups exist. The proportion of sensitive participants who believed a signal was present during GSM exposure (60%) was similar to the proportion who believed one was present during sham exposure (63%).
CONCLUSIONS:
No evidence was found to indicate that people with self reported sensitivity to mobile phone signals are able to detect such signals or that they react to them with increased symptom severity. As sham exposure was sufficient to trigger severe symptoms in some participants, psychological factors may have an important role in causing this condition. "
