Radiation from Cordless Phones Causes Heart Irregularities

Cordless phones, which transmit a similar pulsed signal as Wi-Fi networks at 2.4 Gigahertz, have been shown to impact heart rate in new research published in the European Journal of Oncology.

The double-blind, peer reviewed study validates the condition complained of by increasing numbers of people across the globe called "electrosensitivity," demonstrating immediate effects on heart rate, almost doubling the heart rate in some cases.

The study, “Provocation Study using Heart Rate Variability Shows Radiation from 2.4 GHz Cordless Phone Affects Autonomic Nervous System” was led by Professor Magda Havas, Ph.D., of the Environmental & Resources Studies Department at Trent University, Canada. Co-investigators included Jeffrey Marrongelle, Bernard Pollner, Elizabeth Kelley, Camilla R.G. Rees and Lisa Tully.

Patients today experiencing electrohypersensitivity symptoms are commonly put on drugs for other conditions with similar symptoms, instead of being taught how to create an electromagnetically clean environment to eliminate symptoms.

Havas’ new study adds to the growing interest in the health effects of cell phones, which also transmit microwave radiation, broadening the focus beyond cell phones’ association with brain tumors to their potential effect on other systems, including the heart. It also raises serious concern about risks of exposing schoolchildren to Wi-Fi networks, providing a possible explanation for why some children in schools with Wi-Fi are being diagnosed with, and medicated for, heart irregularities that they believe may linked to Wi-Fi.

“What we found is what many people have said for a long time about devices that emit microwaves,” stated Havas. “People don’t just feel ill, their heart begins to race and this is measurable with medical heart monitoring devices.”
