Cellphone radiation

Postby victor » Sun Jul 09, 2006 2:32 am

When I was on the train 5 days ago, I put my cellphone in the chestpocket of my shirt while I was listening to the music. Then, after that, a strange symptoms occur inside my chest. It's like I felt some kinda little pain coming up from my chest (heart area). And when I place my cellphone in my trouserpocket, the pain is gone... :shock:

My question is, does signal radiation from my cellphone affect the electric impulses from SA node in the heart, so the heart will suffer some kind of pulse rythm disturbance??

From what I know, all cellphones emit a small amount of radiation but it is way below the set standards by FCC. So my guess is that it may just be a psychological thing. I put my cellphone on my breast pocket all the time and that has never happenned to me, though of course different people have different sensitivities.

Probably people with pacemakers are more prone, i dunno. It will be interesting what other people think of this.

I think a more potent source of radiation would be the WIFI transmitters, some of which really blast transmissions.

victor, maybe you should consult a doctor. Have somebody check your heartbeat while your asleep and the cellphone placed near your heart. Or design an experiment, turn off your phone and place it on your breastpocket at different intervals (it would be ideal if somebody would do this for you without your knowledge). In my knowledge, during calls and sending/receiving SMS are the times that higher amounts of radiation are produced. But then again, I don't remember the figures but the amount released is less than half the FCC standards. Have to check on that though.

I oftenly place my cellphone under my pillow when I sleep..(means that under my head, in order to wake me up if I set up its alarm.. :mrgreen: )

As for information, I think I've a tendency to get a high blood pressure (6 days ago, I was measured for 160/100 mmHg).
Okay, thanks..I'll try it..hope that nothing will happen this time..:lol:

Ok..this is what happened to me...
When I placed my cellphone in front of my chest (in heart area), I felt stronger heartbeats within 1-2 minutes. And this kind of feeling is followed by a sudden kinda panic-like feeling and it also affected my breath intake (even though very little, but I feel it)... :(

A double blind experiment might be better, have a collection of cellphones, some activated and some not, then do the process of placing them by your heart and not then reveal which were on and which were off to lessen placbo effect :)

Much of technology is far more powerful than meter readings used to test.
In the heart moniter world there are two types of wave.
T waves or inverted waves are recongised within cardiology

Sceince has been confused over the last 50+ years, what up is really down.. What is read as low level energy is really high...
The powers that be have gone to a great deal of effort to confuse.

Inverted waves are read as being low level energy, mobile phones work on frequencies very close to microwave in another phase or polarity which appears artifically low. When compared to so called older technology. However both technologies have co-existed...
Thermodianamics; when the sine wave is rotated over a 360 deg. sphere it becomes stronger or weaker. Yet appears less power when at maximum strength.... Because the meter is back to front.

I have experienced something of this sort about a year ago... I played with my phone before bed and then left it by my head and fell asleep... The next morning I woke up with a surprisingly strong headache ( I rarely get headaches).. I didnt pay much attention... Next night I left my phone by my head again... And woke up yet with another horrible headache.
Next night I put my phone under my bed and woke up feeling ok...
I dont know if the headaches were caused by cell phone transmissions, maybe this was just a coincidence.
And also, I have put my phone in my chest pocket once and suddenly experienced slight stabbing pains in my heart area. So I dont know. :roll:

Here's a news article saying you need about 30 people using cellphone at the same time to reach the set ICNIRP limits.

And another article, from Finland (the home of Nokia) :P testing cellphone radiation on skin.

And a poll to determine if cellphone radaition bother you.

Basing on these, I think your experience may be valid. I personally don't think I'm affected in noticeable ways, but some sensitive persons can possibly be more susceptible than others, then again the conscious or unconscious mind can be a powerful inducer of simulated cellphone stress.[/url]

I think that for those who felt an increase in their hertbeat and a panic-feeling when the handphone was placed near your chest - it was not caused by handphone radiation, but rather it was caused by placing an object to close to your chest.
I always get that feeling when an object, including a hand, is placed in front of my chest.
Maybe, it is sort of a natural response of the body to protect your vital organs? Just a guess.
