Breast Cancer, Hormones And WIFI

Here, Dr. Sherrill Sellman looks at the effects electromagnetic radiation (EMR), typified by WIFI the environmental smog, is having on the human biofield, women´s hormones and endocrine function.

Hormones are powerful substances. They pack a big wallop considering the tiny amounts that are produced by the endocrine glands.  Most hormones such as oestrogen, progesterone, testosterone, insulin and melatonin are made in parts per billion or parts per trillion.  Even small hormonal fluctuations can create major physiological changes. As profound orchestrators of all of life’s processes, maintaining hormonal balance is imperative for optimum health.   When delicate hormonal balance and rhythms are altered, the body´s ability to regulate fundamental systems goes haywire.  

Our modern lifestyle poses many threats to optimal endocrine function.  Stress, toxicity, poor quality food, lack of sleep, pharmaceutical medications are all known hormone disruptors.   However, there is one particular kind of hormone disruptor that is often the most overlooked  - electromagnetic energy fields generated from cell phones and a variety of electrical sources and devices.

Electromagnetic Fields - The 21st Century Smog

Modern physics has confirmed what eastern philosophy has been based upon for thousands of years - the human body is fundamentally a coherent, highly sensitive electrical system - emanating its own electromagnetic field, known as a biofield.

All physical matter, including the earth itself, radiates electromagnetic energy. The electromagnetic radiation (EMR) found within the natural world is harmonious with and supportive of life.

On the other hand, artificially created EMRs are 100-200 million times greater than what existed just two generations ago.   Every minute of every day, whether we are awake or asleep, we are exposed to a constant barrage of man-made electromagnetic frequencies.

Constant interference with our natural energy fields from external sources of EMRs can eventually damage our own fields resulting in many physiological imbalances, most notable the hardening of the cell membrane.  When this happens waste products can’t get out and nutrients can’t get in.  This leads to free radical damage that alters the DNA and causes cell mutation.  Such serious imbalances will also adversely impact hormone production and neurological processes.

This massive infusion of artificial energy overwhelms the system and leads to more rapid ageing, elevated blood glucose levels, elevated lipid levels, high blood pressure, increased neuro-regulatory disturbances, and compromises the central nervous, cardiovascular and immune systems.

Robert O. Becker, M.D. researcher and author of, Cross Currents, The Perils of Electropollution, explains that our human bodies and immune systems are being adversely affected by man-made electromagnetic fields from sources, including, power lines, cell phones, radar, microwaves, satellites, ham radios, computers, video display terminals, electrical appliances and Wi-Fi hot spots.  He believes that radiation once considered safe, is now correlated with increases in cancer, birth defects, depression, learning disabilities, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Alzheimer ´s disease

Melatonin, Breast Cancer and EMRs

Perhaps, one of the most serious consequences of EMRs exposure is its effects on our hormonal systems. 

The pineal gland is a light sensitive gland about the size of a pea located deep within the center of the brain. Once dismissed as a useless gland, it is now considered to be, perhaps, the most important gland in the body. The pineal gland produces the hormone, melatonin. 

Researchers are increasingly surprised at the extent of the physiological processes that are either controlled or influenced by melatonin:  it regulates our circadian rhythms governing our waking/sleep cycle and it is one of the most efficient destroyers of free radicals thereby allowing DNA synthesis and cell division to occur.  Melatonin not only inhibits the release of oestrogen but also actually suppresses the development of breast cancer.  Melatonin’s other anticancer property is its ability to increase the cytotoxicity of the immune system’s killer lymphocytes. It is even able to enhance the immune system and counteract stress-induced immunosuppression.
In 2001, Masami Ishido at Japan’s National Institute for Environmental Studies showed that breast cancer cells treated with melatonin would resume growing when exposed to power-frequency EMRs.  He found that magnetic fields disrupt the cells’ signalling system – their internal communications network, which determines how they respond to their environment. This mechanism has helped to explain why reduced melatonin levels from EMRs has shown to cause a number of cancers including breast cancer, prostate cancer, melanoma and ovarian malignancies.

It is now known that melatonin suppression occurs at frequencies not far above those of the common household ranges of 50-60 hertz.  If we sleep next to a cordless phone base station and/or digital clock or we have faulty electrical wiring, enough continuous EMR exposures are emitted to suppress nighttime melatonin production.

The connection between breast cancer and EMRs continues to strengthen.  Dr. Patricia Coogan at the Boston University of Public Health reported a 43 percent increased risk in women with a high likelihood of occupational exposure to magnetic fields such as those given off by mainframe computers.  In fact, women who work in electrical jobs, including electricians, telephone installers, power line workers and electrical engineers have a greater risk of dying from breast cancer.  This increased incidence has been directly linked to the suppression of melatonin from EMRs.

It’s not just women that should be concerned about EMRs’ causal link to breast cancer.  In five studies, elevated EMRs have been implicated in an increased incidence of male breast cancer.  Men who worked as telephone linemen, in switching stations, in the utilities industry were found to have as much as a sixfold increase in breast cancer.

More Hormone Disruption

Experimental physiologist, Charles Graham’s research found that magnetic fields had an effect on two other hormones; they increased oestrogen levels and reduced testosterone, a risk factor for testicular and prostate cancer.  He also believes that EMRs may actually fit the definition of an endocrine disrupter better than many hormone mimicking environmental pollutants because magnetic fields appear to elicit their effects by acting on and through hormones, rather than as hormones.

Tamoxifen, the most popular drug given to prevent recurrence of breast cancer, lost its ability to halt the proliferation of cancer cells when exposed to EMRs.  The level of EMRs which produced this effect (12mG) is found in common sources such as a hairdryer, vacuum cleaner, or appliances with large motors such as refrigerators

Neurotransmitters, special class of hormones, include serotonin and dopamine.  Neurotransmitters play a major role in moods especially depression.  Evidence has now shown a connection with altered serotonin and dopamine levels with EMR exposure. 

EMRs also increase the levels of adrenaline, the flight or fight hormone, released from the adrenal glands B. Blake Levitt, author of Electrical Fields states that,  “Prolonged chronic stress is detrimental to every anatomical system, including the reproductive one.  Subliminal stress may effect fertility and elevate blood pressure, which can lead to heart disease and strokes, as well as suppress immune function….even short EMR exposures, like the use of a cordless phone on and off throughout the day, could cause spikes in such  hormone levels. “

What About Cell Phones?

Cell phones create a double whammy to our body.  The  microwave energy which radiates in a circular plume about 6-8  inches from the cell phone’s antenna,  penetrates directly  into our brain breaking down the  protective blood brain barrier, causing DNA damage,  free radical production and even  brain tumors.  Since the master glands, of the body are located in our brain, massive disturbances to the hormonal signaling capacities may be generated from continual cell phone use.

Then there’s the electrical circuitry from cell phones, which generates a competing energy, which interferes with one’s own biofield, or energy field.  This kind of pervasive, or ambient EMR compromises many physiological processes.  When a cell phone is clipped onto the belt or kept in a pant pocket, this ambient field most powerfully affects the tissues and organs it is closest to, particularly in the pelvic area. One study has already shown a 30% reduction in sperm count of mobile phone users.   As more women clip their cell phone to their belts, female reproductive organs may also be at risk

A word of caution also needs to be mentioned about the dangers caused by ambient radiation from headsets.  It is now acknowledged that headsets, far from being protective, can actually increase radiation exposure into the brain by as much as 300 percent.  Bluetooth technology is especially dangerous.

Solutions 101

It´s evident that we have a serious problem. In fact, EMRs are now considered to be the most dangerous and pervasive toxin, which magnifies the risk from all other toxic exposures.

There are some basic things we can do to do reduce exposure. They include the following:

   • Replace your wireless devices with wired versions.

   • Use your smart phone safely—Keep the phone on "Airplane" mode most of the time.

   • Use your laptop computer wisely: Use a wired Ethernet connection for Internet (rather than WIFI).

   • Create a sleep sanctuary—your brain is most vulnerable to EMRs during sleep. Unplug everything in your bedroom at night.

   • Use a headset that is not wired (wires attract and amplify EMRs)—use an airtube headset, instead.

   • Do not put a laptop/iPad on your lap.

   • Reduce temptation to purchase more WIFI devices!

Patented Solutions For WIFI Protection

We are now literally surrounded and inter-penetrated by EMRs 24/7. There is no escape. Therefore, the ultimate protection requires a technology that will provide a personal field of protection.

As a Naturopathic Doctor, I have been alerted to the serious health risks from EMRs. For the past 15 years I have been investigating this subject as well as lecturing about the dangers.

My quest has also been to find the most effective and proven technologies that reduce physical harm from these toxic frequencies.

I have scrutinized many technologies. My search led me to one patented technology that has proven to be profoundly effective. The GIAPLEX technology by GIA Wellness is the technology that I personally use on all my devices as well as recommend to my family, friends and patients.

GIAPLEX incorporates two patented technologies that are embedded in their devices.

One of the patented technologies is called MRET (Molecular Resonant Effect Technology). Basically, the MRET superimposes a ´noise field´ consisting of low frequencies of electromagnetic oscillations that resemble resonance frequencies of living cells in the body.

These oscillations compensate for and neutralize the harmful effects of EMRs generated by cell phones and electronic devices while simultaneously providing support for the body´s cellular functions. The MRET has been independently verified and proven to be effective.

The second technology that is called ERT (Energy Resonance Technology) is a proprietary technology owned by GIA Wellness. ERT works by strengthening the person´s biofield field, which was recognized by the National Institute of Health (NIH) in 1994 to "involve electromagnetic bio-information for regulating homeodynamics."5

Our biofield is essential to health. The biofield is described as the field of energy and information that surrounds and interpenetrates the human body. It is made up of electromagnetic fields and energy structures that contain information for helping all the systems of the human body to communicate and work properly.
The GIAPLEX technology is embedded in a variety of protective devices. They are small discs that are attached to phones, computers and routers, etc. GIAPLEX is very small and can be put in your car as protection from Bluetooth as well as all the other EMR sources from the car´s electronics. It is interesting to note that metal attracts and amplifies EMRs, making our cars dangerous environments to be in without protection.

There is also the state of the art headset that is embedded with the GIAPLEX technology, which utilizes a state-of-the-art enhanced sound chamber that delivers a crystal clear sound through an air-filled wireless tube (similar to a doctor´s stethoscope). Again, a reminder that the metal in the headset wires amplify the EMRs right into the brain.

ERT is embedded in pendants, which enhance and strengthen the biofield. Since stress, toxicity, and illness and, of course, EMRs, weaken the biofield, a pendant is a critical part for total EMR protection.

One Last Thought

I am not advocating giving up our WIFI devices. This is no longer even remotely possible or desirable at this time. What I am strongly encouraging is to use WIFI technology wisely and responsibly. Knowing that there are serious risks, use patented technology like GIAPLEX for greater protection from EMR exposure.

As that wise adage reminds us, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. EMR protection is no longer a luxury but rather a necessity. We will then be able to not just survive but thrive in our Wireless Age.
