Did you ever wonder why some people tirelessly campaign against mobile communication masts going up near them? The reason is closer to your home (and health) than you think. Are you ready to discover how long-term use of phones affects your abundant health, and really easy ways to protect your family? PLUS page down for FREE documentary film!
You see, there’s this molecule called cryptochrome, its inside animals and humans. In animals the cryptochrome combines with a protein called MagR to form a magnetic compass. That’s how animals like bees, butterflies, birds, and migrating mammals navigate their habitats. Their magnetic compass reads the earth’s magnetic field and they actually get a visual of which direction to go in! Masts disrupt their reading, and they get lost. This is thought to be one of the multi-reasons so many bird, butterfly and bee species are rapidly becoming extinct.
But it’s not just animals that are affected; we humans also have cryptochrome and MagR molecules in our bodies. Cryptochrome (I’ll miss out some complexity here)….. affects the ability of a molecule called melatonin to do it’s job; Melatonin helps kill cancerous cells and prevents their spread. Melatonin production is widely known to affect incidence of breast cancer. Disrupted cryptochrome equals lower levels of melatonin activity, equals higher incidence of breast cancers; And that’s just one female cancer! This is also related to the occurrence colorectal cancers, the severity of rheumatoid arthritis inflammation, and disruption to sleep.
Phone masts do have an effect on reproductive health.
It’s widely accepted that electromagnetic radiation (such as that transmitting between everybody’s devices and phone masts) damages male fertility, and new evidence is emerging linking the phone masts to difficulty conceiving for women.
The World Health Organisation rates mobile phone use as ‘a potential carcinogen’ (cancer-causing); is this a risk you wish to take for your ovaries or brain? Carrying a phone in your pocket or bag could directly affect your ovaries and breasts, and holding one near your head/face can increase risk to brain health.
What are your choices?
The effects of radiation from cell phone, wireless, other devices and phone masts builds up over time. So now that you have this information, you have informed choices to make to change your future outcome:
- Never ever have your phone switched on in your pocket or bag, or have it on within a metre of your body for sustained periods (put it on flight mode – do you really need to be available 24/7 at the cost of your health?).
- Don’t let kids and teenagers, (or any family member!) sleep with phones under their pillow.
- When you talk on the phone, can you put it on speaker and hold it away from your head?
- Turn your home WIFI off when you don’t need it.
- Avoid living near a mast – nearly impossible as there are so many in urban areas now. Look out for them on this map (zoom right in to your locality, it takes a while to load), and in person…they are generally about 15 metres high.
- Join local campaigns to stop more masts going up.
So now we run into the obvious objection that we all use devices and we need the masts! YES! As the science unfolds and is more recognised, so the technology must, and will, develop in a more informed way. Of course, it also means that we have to take personal responsibility for our health decisions!
Lastly let’s not forget that The Sistahood teaches holistic health – there are many factors affecting us (food, stress, activity levels and on). Phone masts are by no means the one and only cause of cancers and infertility. Do what you can to avoid electromagnetic radiation, toxic foods, toxic water and toxic relationships; every little helps.
As science evolves and we get more informed, we can make our own choices. What will you choose to do?
