Dopamine, known as the “feel-good” chemical, is released by the brain into the system by certain triggers. It makes us feel good, gives us that kick of pleasure, a high. There are “natural highs” that can cause dopamine to be released, and there are also other substances – nicotine and alcohol, to name two of the most common. They both create a feeling of “all is well” – and then there is the let-down. In both cases, over time, you need more and more in order to reach that “feel good” point. They are both addictive. Dopamine is also released by prolonged exposure to social media – or, as I prefer to call it, anti-social media. The “hit” that comes from those likes to a selfie we have posted, or a comment we have made; the approval of our peers – these too have been proven to be just as addictive as nicotine and alcohol, and just as damaging to our health and wellbeing. It is not uncommon for the habits of smoking and drinking to start in those formative teenage years, when youngsters no longer look to their parents for approval (“likes”) but to their peers. Adolescence, that time...

Alan Cooke looks at the evidence Before anybody jumps to a conclusion that the above statement is illogical, let’s explore some of the possible connections. Whilst I am not advocating that this is the only cause, I can certainly make a case for it being a contributory factor in some instances. Alzheimer’s has historically been a disease attributed to old people but over the last 15-20 years there has been a substantial decrease in the average age of the onset which requires an explanation. It corresponds to the times where we have all increased our exposure to EMFs. It does not mean that this is causing it, but studies from some epidemiological research citing extremely low frequency exposures show a collaboration in the same area as microwaves. There is evidence that electricians and other people who have high exposures to ELFs have higher incidences of Alzheimer’s. There is literature showing that all of the neuro degenerative diseases have a role to play from being triggered by EMFs and there are plausible mechanisms by which this can occur. Two crucial studies published in China found that if you gave young rats a whole series of short EMF pulses for a certain...
The EM-Radiation Research Trust, who organised the highly-successful Radiation Health conference in London at the end of September, has sent an open letter to the UK Government putting it on notice and holding it to account over the roll-out of 5G amid serious world-wide concerns about the health risks. Read the letter here – I would say it’s blasting with both barrels: well done, EM-Radiation Research Trust! EM Radiation Research Trust puts UK government on notice regarding 5G amidst profound world-wide health concerns
There is a lot of debate about protecting yourself and your home from WiFi radiation, or EMFs, or microwave radiation, or 5G. Some will say that nothing works, the only remedy is avoidance – and that is getting increasingly difficult, of course, as the networks multiply and cover even more of the countryside. Others swear by crystals (especially Shungite); or by gadgets and gizmos that claim to “harmonise” or “neutralise” the damaging radiation waves. Talking to those who are seriously affected by this radiation, it becomes clear that, as with so much, there is not a “one size fits all” solution. There is protective clothing, and grounding sheets, and paint that apparently reflects the harmful radiation. I have seen Electrosensitive people coming to workshops and conferences dressed almost like beekeepers, clad head to toe in protective clothing such is their level of sensitivity. This report gives some ideas and suggestions – what I would say is, do your own research, do your own homework, understand that what works for your friend, or the guy who is selling you whatever it is, may not work for you – and that is not your fault, it’s just the way it is. 7-Essential-Ways-to-Make-Your-Home-Safe-FINAL
Have you seen anything in the mainstream media about a lady called Susanne Small, who was detained in a mental health facility in Farnham, Surrey, recently? Probably not. The reason she was put into a room with bars at the window was that she dared to link her headaches and other symptoms to wireless radiation, and question a new mast that had been erected, to beam out 5G. Her doctor would not look at the pile of research she presented, and Ms Small was escorted from her own home. I forwarded a 30-minute radio interview to Brian Stein, head of the charity Radiation Research Trust, as a result of which Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe, a medical doctor very much involved in this field, spoke with the facility herself, to explain more about electrohypersensitivity (EHS) and the mountain of research showing the health risks associated with it. The lady was released the following day, but the story has not ended, I feel sure.

The Making Waves events in May brought together three eminent scientists – Dr George Carlo from USA; Professor Olle Johansson from Sweden; and Dr Dimitris Panagopoulos from Greece. They have co-authored several scientific papers but had never been together in the same place at the same time before, so it was a very special occasion. Saturday was dedicated to people who are already electro-sensitive and Sunday was for those who wanted to know more about the health issues related to microwave radiation. The events were full to the brim, and everyone enjoyed not only listening to the speakers but meeting each other and sharing stories. There will be other events – watch this space – the issues will not go away, we all need to make lots of noise and raise awareness. Here is a photo of me with the scientists in the beautiful ballroom of Sedgwick Park House where the events were held. From left to right: Dr Dimitris Panagopoulos; Dr George Carlo; me (Judy Sharp); Professor Olle Johansson.
This is a link to Brian Stein’s talk at the 2017 Glastonbury Symposium. Brian, a former high-flying CEO of a major company, became electrosensitive due to prolonged use of his mobile phone. His story is one of our times, and should serve as a warning for all of us.
WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT ELECTROSENSITIVITY? READ THIS OPEN LETTER FROM A MEDICAL DOCTOR TO HIS PROFESSIONAL PEERS
Dr Andrew Tressider has been a GP since 1989. He is approved under the Mental Health Act as a Section 12 Doctor. He teaches doctors on Health and Self-Care on behalf of the BMA and in Somerset hospitals and wider afield. Dr Tressider is also a Trustee of the charity ES-UK (ElectroSensitivity UK). In November 2017 he wrote this open letter to his professional colleagues, in an attempt to raise awareness of ElectroSensitivty as a real condition. It should be compulsory reading for everyone.

Findings in a new report published by Alisdair Philips echo those found by Swedish scientist Lennart Hardell: a dramatic increase in the incidence of brain tumours could well be linked to mobile phone usage. The rate of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the deadliest type of brain tumour, more than doubled between 1995 and 2015, according to a new analysis of national statistics, from 983 to 2,531.

The following is the first paragraph of an article in The Ecologist from April 2017. Still fancy one? If you are thinking about it, please do think again! ‘Smart meters’ looked like a great idea, writes Lynne Wycherley, giving us more control over our energy use. The downside? They emit as many as 14,000 short bursts of intense microwave radiation a day, disrupting cellular electrochemistry and causing health symptoms from migraine to tinnitus, insomnia, dizziness, anxiety, chest pain, palpitations and memory loss. Now a growing number of ‘electro-sensitives’ have had enough!
