Interview with Dr. Dominique Belpomme by Radio Canada on Electromagnetic Fields and Electrosensitivity
Electromagnetic Fields Likely to Cause Alzheimer's in Electrosensitive Persons
ici.radio-canada.ca, 6 June 2014 (Summary of Radio-Canada Interview by the Editor of this blog)
Original broadcast in French Dr. Belpomme, President of ARTAC (Association for Research on Treatment Against Cancer) is asked by the interviewer about his creation nearly three years ago of the European Cancer and Environment Research Institute (ECERI). The Institute collaborates with 15-20 European teams researching the environmental causes of not only cancer but also other diseases and disorders, including Alzheimer's and autism. According to Dr. Dominique Belpomme, 80-90% of cancers are linked to the environment. Living was not always “carcinogenic”. Cancer is a recent disease due to the fact that it has become a scourge of huge proportions. Cancer as well as obesity and type 2 diabetes have exploded. We are obliged to ask why. The answer is: life style and pollution:
chemical pollution, pesticides, electromagnetic fields (EMF) produced by wireless technology. Do we continue this technology for purely economic reasons or do we take into account the very high health costs that we will be paying as a result?
Referring to the Canadian safety code, Dr. Belpomme mentions the scientific denial - for purely economic and financial reasons. There is no scientific controversy. High-level independent scientists all agree that there is a major risk from propagation of wireless technology: appearance of certain cancers (EMF are recognized as“potentially carcinogenic” by WHO) and the risk of Alzheimer’s in electrosensitive persons. In less than four years, Dr. Belpomme has questioned and examined clinically more than 1,000 electrohypersensitivity (EHS) – self reported patients. These are real sick persons who are in a pre-Alzheimer’s state.
Canada’s safety code recognizes heating of tissues. What is the most conclusive scientific proof of biological effects? : animal experiments (psychological explanations for their afflictions cannot be attributed to animals) and biological tests of electrosensitive persons which indicate a pre-Alzheimer’s state. These tests include: - Brain imagery showing vascular hypoperfusion in the area of the brain (the limbic system) where Alzheimer’s starts - 2-10 times higher levels of histamine in the blood. - Detection of other markers of the opening of the blood brain barrier. - Higher levels of auto-antibodies against O- myelin and / or stress proteins - Decrease in the production of melatonin in 24h urine
These indications are objective and show the same biological anomalies as found in animals exposed to EMF. What can we do? Treat these sick persons with natural anti-inflammatory products and anti-histamine medications and anti-oxidants; correct the deficit in vitamins and oligo elements to avoid Alzheimer’s. The sick persons are partially reimbursed by the French system, but these medicines are not recognized as specifically for treating electrosensitive persons, only for their biological or clinical properties. More and more electrosensitive persons are being recognized as handicapped.
We must take daily measures to protect ourselves: never use a cell phone for more than 20 minutes a day, in sequences of 6-minute calls. Limit use of cell phones by children and adolescents. Ban cell phones before age 12. Pregnant women should use cell phones as little as possible to protect the very vulnerable fetus. Dr. Belpomme then talks about smart meters: better to call these “intelligent” meters, “dumb” meters. They add to the electrosmog. The interviewer says these emit 83 seconds a day. Dr. Belpomme replies that more than the dose, it is the repetition of the dose that makes the poison.
Electrosensitive persons are also affected by artificial and solar light.
Today, risks from exposure to electromagnetic fields are recognized by the whole scientific community. The latest statistics from Europe indicate that 10% of the population suffers from this syndrome of intolerance to EMF and the numbers are growing. These people are totally handicapped in their lives. Statistics in peer-reviewed publications predict that in the next 50 years, from 25 to 50% of the population will be afflicted. Dr. David O. Carpenter in the United States says exactly the same.
The interviewer asks, how can you explain that the most renowned organizations contest the research, saying there is no scientific evidence or at best, weak evidence?
Dr. Belpomme replies by referring to the three BioInitiative Reports compiled by 30 of the top world experts. Out of over 3,000 articles published in the best international reviews, two-thirds say there is a health risk. He goes on to emphasize again the denial and financial interests which push the media to misinform the public.
When asked about his own use of wireless technology, Dr. Belpomme says he uses a cell phone for only a few minutes a day – for emergency calls. There is no Wi-Fi in his offices, everything is wired. (Dr. Belpomme kindly reviewed this text.)

Excerpt from the book EMF Freedom (Electromagnetic Fields) Solutions for the 21st Century Pollution
From André Fauteux
The meters started being installed at the beginning of the week
and by Thursday night an itchy rash developed around my ankle.
Having had a long standing appointment with a doctor the following
week, I thought she could determine what was causing it
and tell me what to do for it. By the time I saw her the following
Thursday, the rash was up my calf and covered half of my thigh.
She stated it was not scabies and recommended herbs that help
reduce skin inflammation.
Two weeks later, the rash was solid over my legs, arms, stomach
and back. The itching was so intense, with nothing able to relieve
it, there was no way to sleep. I felt like I was undergoing torture.
I saw my primary care doctor, who stated it was probably scabies.
When I said I had not been exposed to them, she prescribed
cortisone cream and pills. This did not stop the spreading or
the itching, so I was referred to a dermatologist who also stated
it had to be scabies and prescribed scabies medication to be used
over my total body.
Knowing it was not scabies, I chose not to use it. After several
more weeks of being awake itching all night, I could not stand it
anymore and went to a doctor who had helped me in the past. He
thought it was a recurrence of the skin parasite schistosomiasis I
had been infected with 30 years earlier. I underwent his schistosomiasis
cleansing. After still being awake itching all night, I became
desperate and utilized the scabies therapy 3 times, because the
standard of applying it 2 times did not help. Still, nothing worked!
I was given referrals to both an allergist (the answer: it was not
contact dermatitis) and then to an infectious disease doctor (the
answer: it had to be scabies). Finally, I was referred to one of the
most highly regarded dermatologist in the area. His answer was
to prescribe ultraviolet (UV) therapy treatments, stating that UV
reduces skin inflammation.
By now, I could not use a cell phone or a computer due to itching,
bloody sores breaking out up my arm and legs within minutes of
using either device. My skin spontaneously started bleeding when
I was exposed to any EMF radiation. It bled so profusely, many
of my clothes and sheets were destroyed due to staining. Being a
researcher and author, not being able to be around computers or
cell phones meant I could no longer work. It was Christmastime
and since some of the doctors were still convinced it was scabies,
I could not go anywhere or be with my young grandchildren for
fear of the possibility of infecting others.
Finally, I looked again at all the health complaints from Northern
California. Just searching on the word “rash” I was astonished
at how many people had written about their problems with skin
rashes that began after the installation of their SMART meters.
Additionally during this time, I realized that if I was near people
who were transmitting on the new more powerful 3G and 4G
phones, I felt like slender sharp needles were going into my
ankles, feet, thighs, or mid-back. When 3–4 feet away from the
SMART meters that were installed in my area, the same feeling
of needles penetrating my feet and legs would occur. With all
these new symptoms, it became obvious they were the result of
the new EMF smog that was blanketing our neighborhood and
community from the newly installed SMART meters, as this was
the only thing that was different in my environment. Now that
the source of the problem had been identified, it was much easier
to find solutions.
My first discovery was that grounding to the earth’s energy helps
offset electromagnetic radiation, so I started going to the ocean
and laying on the sand or on the ground for an hour or two a day.
Next we brought in a biological building inspector who helped
identify where the EMF exposures were excessive throughout
our home and office. Making the changes he recommended and
turning the electricity off at night to the back part of our house
where we sleep, along with consistent grounding at the beach, my
symptoms gradually subsided.
Today, utilizing a sheet that grounds our bed and a pad that
grounds my feet when working on the computer, as well as employing
energy optimizers for my body, cell phone, and electronic
devices, I am finally rash free. These techniques have allowed me
to reenter society and to be able to work again. However, when
I am unable to avoid being around a large crowd of people who
are all using their cell phones, my skin itches for several hours
afterwards. Also if I spend time working in rooms with banks of
computers as well as Wi-Fi (e.g., medical library) without adequate
antioxidants, I develop a slight rash on my mouse arm.
It is important to remember that just because we can use grounding
pads and energy harmonizing devices to feel more comfortable, it
does not mean the harm has been eliminated. The best thing for
everyone is to combine as many ways to protect themselves and
eliminate or reduce as much EMF radiation as possible, because
its effects are cumulative and delayed.
