Through the use of dark field microscopic imaging, the visible haematological effects of radio frequency radiation (RFR) generated by a cellular phone usage were profiled. Each subject gave a control sample and then used a cell phone Nokia model 6085 in the standard operating position for fifteen (15) minutes, engaged in receiving sound in some form. The results were recorded on a digital camera. All results were analyzed and compared. There are several issues that merit discussion since the experimental design intended to examine the effect of radio frequency (RF) radiation emitted by cell phone usage on live blood. Despite the control appearance of all subjects in this investigation, the cell phone effects consistently led to documented findings of rouleau, and erythrocyte aggregation and a far more abnormal haematological appearance. See the results below.Blood is the most unique "organ" in the body and all physiological functions are totally dependent on the capability of this diverse fluid to carry out a number of functions. In optimal blood cell formations, the erythrocytes (red blood cells) are singular, free moving and often colliding with one another. Blood is responsible for the distribution and transport of oxygen from the lungs to the cells of the body and to remove carbon dioxide from the cells and transport it back to the lungs. Blood is also responsible for the transportation of nutrients, hormones and wastes, temperature control, pH, electrolyte balance and the immune system function of the white blood cell components.

The risk of cancer (an unrestrained growth of abnorma cells) is dramatically increased with the use of drugs like Proscar, according to Jan-Ake Gustafsson, M.D. and professor of medicine at Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. Dr. Gustafsson concluded his extensive study on the effects of common prostate medicines on the body, reporting his initial findings in 2001. Recent, more comprehensive studies proved that certain pharmaceuticals dramatically increased the risk of cancer by inhibiting the release of testosterone in the prostate and thereby limiting its essential by-product, beta-receptor, which carry out the critical role of controlling the growth of the prostate cells. These findings, once again, expose the hazardous nature of some pharmaceuticals in their purported quest to heal disease.

The National Institute of Dental Research states that 75% of the adult population has moderate to advanced periodontal infection, 90% has some form of gingivitis, and 30% of children have pathogenic microorganisms. According to the National Institute of Health, “the incidence of PI exceeds 70% in the 30 – 44 age groups and 90% in the 55 – 64 age group… the prevalence and severity of PI will increase as the life expectancy of the population and retention of teeth increase.”

In her providence, Mother Nature has arranged that our very first relationship in the world contains within it the ideal “living food” diet. Immediately after coming out of the womb, new born infants can instinctively locate their mother’s breast if left on the mother’s abdomen. Today, many mothers are relearning the immeasurable health value of guiding babies to the breast to receive their mother’s milk. The breast produces milk, which is a “human-specific” pre-digested food, designed to nourish our young. Breastfeeding aids in the transition to extra-uterine life for the child and promotes the mother’s readjustment after pregnancy.

For years, one thing hasn’t improved over time: the human aging process. The addition of better food sources, cleaner water, exercise and meditation prolong the human life span. With the awareness and availability of super-foods and nutritional supplementation, it seemed we were finally winning the battle against an inevitable decline. However, it was quite apparent that something was missing because despite continuing to exercise, eating right, and taking supplementation, women and men noticed a dramatic decrease in their immunity, libido and mental clarity, increased weight and mood changes between the ages of 40 – 54 for women and 30 – 70 for men.

I have observed the advances in science for nearly three quarters of the 20th century and am heartened in recent years by the willingness of a growing number of young physicians, health practitioners and science professionals to advance beyond the strangle hold that the prescription drug industry and academic medicine have maintained on health care and national policy regarding health care for more than a century. With due applause for strides allopathic medicine has made in conquering a host of diseases with this approach, it’s practice is still rooted in treating symptoms, not causes, through manufactured chemical compounds and surgical procedures. It is still grounded in 19th century reductionist science.
