Wireless Phone Use Increases Malignant Brain Tumour Up to Four-Fold
Frequent use of mobile and cordless phone link to malignant brain tumour confirmed in new comprehensive analysis based on the largest number of cases in Sweden; 3G phones more damaging than 2G, and children more at risk; “current guidelines for exposure should be urgently revised”
Dr Mae-Wan Ho 12th November 2014

Membrane Potential Rules
An electric property universal to all cells turns out to determine their vital states, from cell division and pattern formation to differentiation, regeneration, and cancer; lending support to the electrodynamics basis of life
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 21st September 2011

Mobile Phones Damage the Brain
Laboratory experiments show that electromagnetic fields from mobile phones destroy the blood brain barrier and damage neurons even 50 days after a single exposure in rats
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 6th July 2011

Wireless Phones and Brain Cancer
Cordless phones similar to mobile phones for increased risks to brain tumours, especially for the young, where the risks are five times for users compared with controls
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 22nd June 2011

European Environment Agency Highlight Mobile Phone Cancer Risks
Latest reviews conclude 10 years exposure increases brain tumour risks especially for the young
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 15th June 2011

Wireless Phone Radiation "Possibly Carcinogenic"
Radiofrequency electromagnetic fields hazardous to health, says the World Health Organization, after decades of denial; European Parliament recognizes non-thermal EMF effects along with the precautionary principle, calling for lower exposure limits and “genuine independence” of scientific research and expertise
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 8th June 2011

Cordless Phones and Malignant Brain Tumours
Cordless phones depend on the same microwaves that power cell phones and other wireless telecommunication and may be far more hazardous.

Drowning in a Sea of Microwaves
Wireless communication takes over in homes, offices, and public places, as evidence of microwave health hazards multiply for humans and species across the living world
Dr Mae-Wan Ho 17th May 2007

A Break-through in Understanding Non-Thermal Electromagnetic Field Effects
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho reviews new and old scientific findings to explain how the physics and chemistry of the collective water structure in the cell and the organism can interact with extremely weak EMFs to cause a multitude of biological effects.
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 15th February 2005

Confirmed: Mobile Phones Break DNA & Scramble Genomes
New Report on EU-wide study confirms hazards of exposure to electromagnetic radiation but does not prove health risks. So what use is this research
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho and Prof. Peter Saunders 17th January 2005

Mobile Phone Turns Enzyme Solution into A Gel
A highly reproducible non-thermal effect of mobile phones depends on interaction between protein and water. Dr. Mae-Wan Ho says it brings us closing to understanding the biophysics involved in how weak electromagnetic radiation can have biological effects.
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 14th January 2005

Mobile Phones & Brain Damage
Rats exposed to mobile phones for two hours showed brain damages that persisted 50 days later. But current exposure standards are still highly inadequate to protect the public.
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 28th September 2004

Electromagnetic Fields, Leukaemia and DNA Damage
Leukaemia, DNA damage in brain cells and other electromagnetic field effects cannot be explained unless scientists communicate and collaborate across the disciplines
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 24th September 2004

Trapping Light
Remarkable things can happen when atoms and molecules interact with light. Normally opaque matter can become transparent, and light can be slowed down enormously, or come to a complete stop. The secret is quantum coherence, and the promise, quantum communication.
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 19th March 2004

The Excluded Biology
Successive reports have confirmed that electromagnetic fields too weak to cause burns and heating are linked to cancers and other illnesses. But these are still dismissed because of the presumed absence of 'possible biological mechanisms' that could account for the effects.
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 13th December 2002

Non-Thermal Effects
Electromagnetic fields too weak to heat up the body had been linked to cancer and other illnesses since the 1960s. The current 'safety' limits are still inadequate to protect workers and the public from these effects
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 12th December 2002

Mobile Phones & Cancer
A spate of reports during 2002 is confirming links between electromagnetic radiation from mobile phones and cancer
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 11th December 2002

Electromagnetic Fields Double Leukemia Risks
After years of controversy, a new study confirms that exposure to electromagnetic fields doubles leukaemia risks
