The OTHER Problem with Cell Phones

New World Notes News
Vol. 3, No. 38 -- September 18, 2010

This week in New World Notes, radio program #133, September 21 & 25:

The Other Problem with Cell Phones

In brief

Our previous program on cell phones (NWN #127) focused on the mineral wars in the Congo to supply the metals the phones (& other gadgets) need.

Today we focus on the bad health effects of the electromagnetic radiation (EMR) from cell phones--and from cell towers, Wi-Fi hotspots, and (worse yet) WiMAX hot spots. We'll hear from psychotherapist Chellis Glendinning and the late New Zealand scientist Dr. Neil Cherry. And we'll hear about Project Pandora: the CIA's EMR studies on the unwitting staff of the US Embassy in Moscow.

Top: The former U.S. Embassy, Moscow, 1959. The Soviets began beaming electromagnetic radiation at the building in the 1950s. The CIA discovered the irradiation in 1962, studied the bad health effects on Embassy staff (and monkeys the CIA brought in!) for more than a decade, then notified the Embassy staff of their peril in 1976.
