EMF and Your Immune System: How Radiation Exposure Harms Your Health

“The role of your immune system is to patrol your body, actively seeking foreign microbes (such as bacterias, viruses, parasites, and fungi). If your body’s immune system finds something unrecognizable, the immune 2system will immediately launch an attack in an attempt to neutralize the foreign objects.

Scientists have found that prolonged exposure to EMF from every day technology like your cell phone and your microwave oven disturbs your immunity pattern. This can make it respond in different ways than it should.”

“Science has demonstrated a wide range of numerous negative health effects resulting from exposure to EMF radiation, ranging from sleep disruption to cancer. Among those negative health effects are several ways that exposure to EMF radiation can harm your immune system. And that, in turn, makes your body more vulnerable to ill health, disease and allergies.”  EMF and Your Immune System: How Radiation Exposure Harms Your HealthR Blank

Evidence for Effects on the Immune System – Prof Olle Johansson

“Both human and animal studies report large immunological changes with exposure to environmental levels of electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Some of these exposure levels are equivalent to those of e.g. wireless technologies in daily life.”   Evidence for Effects on the Immune System – Prof Olle Johansson

Reaction of the immune system to low-level RF/MW exposures –  Szmigielski S

“Radiofrequency (RF) and microwave (MW) radiation have been used in the modern world for many years. The rapidly increasing use of cellular phones in recent years has seen increased interest in relation to the possible health effects of exposure to RF/MW radiation. In 2011 a group of international experts organized by the IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer in Lyon) concluded that RF/MW radiations should be listed as a possible carcinogen (group 2B) for humans. The incomplete knowledge of RF/MW-related cancer risks has initiated searches for biological indicators sensitive enough to measure the “weak biological influence” of RF/MWs. One of the main candidates is the immune system, which is able to react in a measurable way to discrete environmental stimuli.

In this review, the impacts of weak RF/MW fields, including cell phone radiation, on various immune functions, both in vitro [cell culture studies] and in vivo [live animal studies], are discussed. The bulk of available evidence clearly indicates that various shifts in the number and/or activity of immunocompetent cells [cells that can develop an immune response] are possible, however the results are inconsistent. For example, a number of lymphocyte [small white blood cells especially found in the lymphatic system] functions have been found to be enhanced and weakened within single experiments based on exposure to similar intensities of MW radiation.

Certain premises exist which indicate that, in general, short-term exposure to weak MW radiation may temporarily stimulate certain humoral* or cellular immune functions, while prolonged irradiation inhibits the same functions.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23562692
