CHUCK NORRIS Q: Chuck, heard about elec- trosmog? Can it cause health problems? --Eddy R. Anchorage, Alaska A: Our world has become an intertwined entanglement of electrical wires and waves, ra- dio, television and satellite signals, wireless and Wi-Fi networks, cellphone towers, etc. Combine those with the myriad electrical appliances in most houses, such as com- puters, cordless phones, mi- crowaves, lights, refrigera- tors, hair dryers, etc. And those don't include the bar- rage of personal electronic gadgets that have proliferated in our lives and remain in our possession 24/7. Individually, the health risks of each of the above may be marginal, but in a cumula- tive sense, they end up emit- ting into our lives streams of what experts call "electros- mog." The Arizona Center for Ad- vanced Medicine defines elec- trosmog as pollution through electromagnetic energy. ACAM notes that pollution should be of particular impor- tance to every human because each of us is "a complex orga- An electromagnetic field is a field of energy created by elec- trically charged objects. Just as transistor radios have com- peting signals, we are suscep- tible to other electrical fre- quencies. And our bodies es- sentially attune to surround- ing electrical charges, though we are not able to distinguish between friendly electromag- netic fields and foe EMFs. ACAM has documented sev- eral sources and studies over the years that have substanti- ated the negative health ef- fects of excessive EMFs on hu- mans. Here are just a few ex- amples: --During World War II, So- viets noticed that radar opera- tors often came down with symptoms of what we now call electrical hypersensitivity syndrome. --In 1956, when television was introduced in Australia, researchers reported rapid in- creases in cancers among peo- ple who lived near transmis- sion towers. --Astronauts used to get sick when being in space and away from what are called Schumann resonances, which are extremely low-frequency waves that are Earth's natural frequencies, causing a con- SCOTT TANNER BUSINESS EQUIPMENT Sales Service Supplies Tea Party to meet The Plumas-Sierra Tea Party Patriots will hold a meeting Saturday, July 9, 7 - 8:30 p.m. at the Graeagle Fire Hall. The special guest speakers will be IgorBirman and Rocky Deal Birman is the chief of staff for Congressman Tom McClin- tack and manages the Congres- sional office, serving as senior policy advisor. Birman is fly- ing out from Washington, D.C., to talk at the meeting. Rocky Deal is the district di- rector for Congressman Tom McClintock. Rocky is a retired U.S. Navy captain who served as chief of staff to the comman- der of naval air forces in the Pacific. Birman and Deal are going to talk about the federal gov- ernment's attempt to control land and water They will also give an update on what Tom McClintock has been doing at the Capitol.

Electrosmog is a fuel for the flourishing of pathogens. No wonder Dr. Samuel Mil- ham, an experienced epidemi- ologist who studied high-fre- quency voltage transients and reported his findings in his book, "Dirty Electricity: Elec- trification and the Diseases of Civilization," concluded that the "war on cancer" has been a failure because "people have missed the major carcinogen."

Quincy lution to reducing electrosmog is minimizing the exposure and reducing bad and compet- ing EMFs. Here are a few ex- cellent suggestions from ACAM and other experts for reducing electrosmog: --Use a cellphone EMF pro- tector and the "speaker" func- tion m: a hands-free device when talking to others. --Don't place your laptop computer directly on your lap. At the very least, use anti-ra- diation shields and pads for all your computers. --Reduce the number of elec- trical devices in your home. Take an inventory and ask, "Do we really need this one?" --Call your local utility companies and ask,what EMF- emitting devices and towers they use and where they are located in relation to your home. Ask also what they do to minimize EMFs. --Paint the interior walls of your house with shielding paint. --Put a shielding film on windows and sliding glass doors. --Make sure you have low- EMF appliances. --Use shielded appliance cords. --Install outlet timers for appliances and kill switches to turn off electricity at night that runs through the walls and cords. (Protect bedrooms in particular, EMFs should be minimized there because the body rejuvenates while it sleeps.) In short, go natural. Go or- ganic. Go greem Your health won't resent it. (Next week in C-Force, I will discuss one of the newest and most pervasive emitters of electrosmog. It is being in- stalled on nearly every build- ing across America, including your home!)
