Coast to Coast AM: EMF Dangers/ Martin Blank
In the first half, Martin Blank, currently a Special Lecturer in the department of physiology and biophysics at Columbia University, where he was an Associate Professor for forty years, discussed what electromagnetic radiation (EMF) from technology such as cell phones and WIFI does to our bodies after prolonged exposure. Even though we don't seem to physically react to such technologies, our cells respond to them, making special proteins they need for protection. This is the same response made by our cells when exposed to something like a toxin, he pointed out. "While we may think we're being protected by the regulations that limit what can be put out in the atmosphere, the fact of the matter is that the standards that have been set are just inadequate," he remarked.When electromagnetic waves and signals interact with DNA, its code can go awry, and if that happens enough, this can lead to cell mutations, which is believed to be the first step in forming a cancer, Blank continued, adding that there are cases of people who frequently talked on their cell phones, and subsequently developed brain cancer. He advises people to turn off their cell phones, as well as their WIFI routers, when not being used, as this can reduce their overall exposure to EMF.
