Italy’s Supreme Court upheld a man’s claim that his cell phone use caused his brain tumor. The Result? Columnist Lindsay Abrams, writing for The Atlantic, turned it into a humorous article, scoffing the cell phone/cancer link. Click here to read the article.
Fortunately, you can write to Ms. Abrams and tell her what you think of her tone-deaf science-denying article at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are concerned about the inadequacy of the Federal Communications Commission’s radiofrequency (RF) human exposure guidelines to protect your health, here is your chance to tell the FCC your concerns. Click the link here below to see the instructions given by the EMR Policy Institute below.

IBE’s founder and eternal inspiration Helmut Ziehe passed away quietly and without pain on 17 January 2013, surrounded by family and friends. His widow and best friend Susannah Ziehe asks that, in lieu of flowers and other heartfelt expressions, donations be made to the Helmut Ziehe Scholarship Fund, a program Helmut put into place before his death to introduce students into IBE’s Building Biology curriculum whom might otherwise not have the financial resources to attend. Donations in any amont can be made on the IBE website by clicking here.
Watch this ten minute excerpt from our 2012 Conference, featuring the Sunday keynote presentation by Camilla Rees, MBA, founder of ElectromagneticHealth.org, as she delivers in layman’s language the science and solutions for creating safe havens in a toxic, electromagnetic world.

Dr. Devra Davis and several other leading scientists provide an update on latest (peer-reviewed) science of prenatal cellphone radiation exposures of tested mammals finding damage to their brains and their offspring. Also presentation on findings that cellphone radiation exposures cause human sperm damage.

The major cellphone service providers–Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile are claiming they need government approval for even more radio spectrum, in order to maintain service quality and low prices. Yet even the inventor of cellphones, Martin Cooper, says their claims are “Largely exaggerated.” Read the New York Times exposé by clicking here.

Solutions for Creating Healthy Buildings, our 2011 North American Building Biology Conference, concluded last week. It was an exhilarating five-day event, with world famous keynote speakers, seventeen expert panelists, a full day presentation of the science and research that led to the development of the concept known as Earthing, and a two day seminar that introduced the nuts and bolts of IBE’s Healthy Home Standard 2011.

The Parliamentary Assembly in Europe concluded on May 6th—after an in-depth examination of evidence—that cell phones and Wi-Fi should be banned in schools. Why? Because of their “potentially harmful” effects on humans…especially “little” humans. And in breaking news today, the World Health Organization is now labeling mobile phones a “carcinogenic hazard”—like lead and chloroform.
Children are always the most vulnerable victims of environmental pollution. For instance, because of their size, they absorb 50 percent more air pollution than adults. When it comes to EMFs, studies have shown that their inner skulls and bones allow them to absorb twice the amount of radiation as an adult. EMFs can more deeply penetrate their brain tissue, which is more conductive than an adult’s because it contains a higher concentration of fluid and ions. One study found that a cell phone call lasting only two minutes causes brain hyperactivity that persists for an hour in children.
Because they’re growing 24/7, children’s cells are dividing at breakneck speed. The more cells that divide, the greater the risk for damage at critical junctures. EMFs can cause breaks in the blood-brain barrier, which is more permeable in children. That breach can allow toxins to travel to the brain through the bloodstream and can result in oxidative stress, damage to nerve tissue, and adverse effects to brain hormones such as dopamine and serotonin.
