Pick of the Week #18: Effect of Microwaves on the Central Nervous System 1965

German translation

December 2, 2010.  Pick of the Week #18:  Effect of Microwaves on the Central Nervous System, German Translation, 1965. 

Bergman, W.  1965.  The effect of Microwaves on the Central Nervous System.  Translation from the German for Research and Scientific Laboratory, Ford Motor Company by the Technical Library Research Service.  82 pp.


The autonomic nervous system is affected by the microwaves of the centimeter wavelength band. These waves affect circulation, respiration, temperature control, water balance, albumin and sugar concentration in the cerebro-spinal fluid, hydrogen ion concentration, EEG. GSR, sleep, conscious awareness, etc. Depending on the applied dosage, these waves stimulate the sympathetic or parasympathetic system. Very small dosages produce analgesic effects; however, very large dosages are fatal. An undamped or modulated frequency is more effective than damped waves. The biological effect of these waves results from the resonance absorption in the ganglia. There are indications that only higher harmonics, and not the fundamental frequency, produce biological effects. The shielding of the test subject by metal screens increases these effects; however, magnetic fields remove them. Higher harmonics producing these biological effects have physical properties which are similar to those of the bio-electrical energy generated by the human body. The mechanism of hypnosis is explained by the transmission of this energy.

The present study demonstrates that short electromagnetic waves can have an extensive influence on the central nervous system. This involves a direct influence of high-frequency energy on the autonomic nervous system and the influence on the somatic nervous system takes place by the control of its readiness to function from the vegetative sphere. Such a process otherwise takes place only under hypnosis. The human body has been found to be the generator of a wave energy which is propagated in the surrounding atmosphere in the form of electromagnetic waves. In its transmission to other persons, this energy influences the central nervous system in a manner similar to short electromagnetic waves. The hypothesis used for an explanation of suggestion is based on the transmission of this wave energy. It has been found that neither the entire electromagnetic field of a short-wave transmitter nor the entire electrical field in the environment of the human body can influence the central nervous system. Rather, the central nervous system is influenced by certain wave components contained in the electromagnetic waves generated by a short-wave transmitter as well as in the electrical field surrounding the human body. Since these Wave components of short electromagnetic waves as well as those of the electrical field around the human body exhibit similar physical characteristics and exert similar influences on the central nervous system, it can be assumed that the same energy is involved in both cases. The possibility results to produce the energy which is effective in hypnosis by engineering methods. In this connection, the development of the instruments which are to produce this energy is to be based on guidelines which differ fundamentally from those presently utilized in the development of transmitters for short-wave diathermy.
In short-wave diathermy as it is used today, the heat generated in the patient is primarily utilized. The development of short-wave transmitters consequently followed the design of highly efficient instruments which produced a maximum heat generation in the patient. It was found that heat produces an effect opposite to that of the energy which influences the central nervous system. Consequently, the effective action of the energy influencing the central nervous system is considerably reduced by the heat formed in the patient. A further attenuation of the energy influencing the central nervous system was produced by the introduction of oscillators which generate undamped oscillations. For undamped waves produce much less prominent reactions of the central nervous system than damped waves or pulses. The introduction of transmitters built on this basis for short-wave diathermy together with the new dosage method which I have proposed and which is based on the principle of measuring the reaction of the autonomic nervous system to the electromagnetic energy absorbed by the body. will provide the practising physician with a new effective instrument permitting the treatment of patients by direct stimulation of the central nervous system. On you will find information related to the subject of electromagnetic fields (EMF) that originate from our use of electricity and wireless communication technologies. The subjects we are mainly concerned with are the harmful health effects that EMFs have on human health, wildlife, and nature. Here, Dr. Havas presents her research and the research from other scientists, activists, and individuals in the media who all share the goal of informing the public about the hazzards of modern electrical technology and how to use these devices safely. 

Dr. Havas is in the process of publishing her scientific papers and presentations at her companion website:, which is strictly dedicated to her body of research that encompasses environmental and health effects of electromagnetic and chemical contaminants.

Pick of the Week #6: Clinical & Hygienic Aspects of Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields

August 16, 2010.  Pick of the Week #6:  Clinical & Hygienic Aspects of Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields.

Dodge, CH.  1969.  Clinical and Hygienic Aspects of Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields: A Review of the Soviet and Eastern European Literature.  Biological Effects and Health Implications of Microwave Radiation, Symposium Proceedings, Richmond, Virginia, September 17-19, 1969 (BRH/DBE 70-2) (PB 193 898).

Christopher Dodge, affiliated with the Library of Congress, wrote the first comprehensive review of the world (especially the Soviet and Eastern European) literature on the biological effects of microwaves in 1964.  The current document was written 5 years later during which time the author was with the Biosciences Division, U.S. Naval Observatory, in Washington, D.C. This document concentrates on human clinical studies and occupational hygiene surveys of microwave exposure and is well worth reading.
What is clear is that by the late 1960 the Soviet and Eastern European scientists had conducted numerous studies on the effects of microwave radiation on humans, that biological and health effects were documented for a range of frequencies at non-thermal levels, and that this information was available to the U.S. military.  Why this science was not taken more seriously, why guidelines were not influenced by this research, and why we are still debating thermal vs non-thermal effects is a mystery that I leave for historians and philosophers to debate. Here are a few gems from this document:

  1. By 1933 Soviet scientists recognized that electromagnetic fields affected the human nervous system.  Indeed changes to the central (CNS) and autonomic (ANS) nervous system attributed to radio frequency radiation were frequently documented, as were additional effects as shown in Table 1. Frequencies from 30 MHz to 300 GH at both thermal (greater than 10 mW/cm2) and non-thermal (microW/cm2 to milliW/cm2) intensities were known to affect the CNS.
  2. The most disappointing aspect of the literature cited was the absence of information on the specific circumstances of the irradiation, characteristics of the environment and the conditions of the body exposed, which makes repetition of the studies difficult.
  3. Panov et al. (1966) proposed three chronological stages of human response to microwaves (Table 2).
    - The first stage is not marked by severe episodes such as fainting or dramatic changes in pulse or blood pressure and the subject responds to outpatient treatment.
    - The second stage is called the “syndrome of autonomic and vascular dystonia” and the key features include altered pulse including bradycardia (slow) and tachycardia (rapid), either high or low blood pressure, altered ECG and general neuro-circulatory asthenia.  Severe episodes (fainting) may occur and the subject requires hospitalization of unspecified nature or duration.
    - The third stage is called diencephalic syndrome in which visceral dysfunctions and crisis are observed.  Typical episodes include apathic embolic disorders, hypersomnia, hypokinesis, hypothalamo-pituitary-suprarenal weakness, and inhibition of sexual and digestive reflexes.  Panov claims these changes are not always reversible and that subjects require hospitalization.
  4. The general subjective complaints resulting from EMR exposure shown in Table 3 resemble symptoms associated with electrohypersensitivity (EHS).
  5. Edelwejn (1966) found that the symptoms (Table 3) experienced by Polish personnel exposed to microwave radiation for up to six hours/day depended on the length of employment and degree of exposure. During the first three years, a dramatic response to microwave exposure accompanied by neurotic symptoms was reported.  This was followed by a gradual adaption phase and then, many years later, by the reappearance of neurologic symptoms. Soviet workers exposed to electric and magnetic fields near hydroelectric stations also complained of symptoms in Table 3.  Ospiov (1965) concluded that most subjective symptoms were reversible and that pathological damage to neural structures was insignificant.
  6. In one study, a larger percentage of subjects exposed to weak (1 to 100s microW/cm2) and moderate (100s microW/cm2) levels of EMR experienced symptoms than those who were sporadically exposed to intense levels (3000 to 4000 microW/cm2) (see Figure 1 below, note this figure is based on Table 4 of the original document).
  7. Pulsed ultra high frequency (UHF) fields [0.3 to 3 GHz] could be used as a form of contactless electrosleep, which was called radio-sleep.
  8. Numerous changes were documented in the blood including altered blood sugar, cholesterol and lipids; altered levels of pyruvic acid, lactic acid, and creatinine; as well as hematopoietic [blood forming processes] and biochemical responses to electromagnetic radiation (see Tables 8,9, 10).
  9. Effects on the functioning of and damage to the eyes were mostly documented at either acute or chronic thermal levels of exposure (see Table 11).
  10. Major endocrine responses included altered functioning of the pituitary, thyroid and adrenal glands.  Damage to sex glands and functions have been frequently documented after chronic exposure to primarily thermal intensities (Table 12).  Decreased spermatogenesis, altered sex ratio at birth (excess females), changes in menstruation, retarded fetal development, congenital effects in newborns, decreased lactation in nursing mothers have been documented as result of thermal exposure (greater than 10,000 microW/cm2).

Figure 1.  Percentage of subjects who responded to weak (1 to 100′s microW/cm2), moderate (100′s microW/cm2), and periodic intense (3,000 to 4,000 microW/cm2) levels of microwave radiation. Based on data in Table 4, Dodge, 1969.  [Note:  U.S. and Canadian guidelines are 1,000 microW/cm2 so the weak and moderate exposures are well below these guidelines.]

Well, the newest in this “series” is called “Population Control & Microwave Radiation.”  It ponders the concept that some “elite group” is using microwave radiation to control the size of the human population. This video is deliberately intended to be provocative.

If WiFi harms trees, what about children? 

November 24, 2010.  The debate about WiFi being used in schools continues to escalate as new research from the Netherlands shows that when ash trees are exposed to radiation emitted by WiFi base station antennas, the leaves discolor and gradually die.  The study reported that 70% of all trees in urban areas (but not those in dense forests) show the symptoms, compared to 10% five years ago. Although this is a preliminary study, which has not yet been published, it should be taken seriously. Wageningen University was commissioned by the municipality of Alphen aan den Rijn to determine if electromagnetic radiation from cell phone towers or WiFi masts could play a role in the deteriorating health of the city’s ash trees. 

For the experiment, six WiFi access points where erected at various distances from the trees that were continuously exposed for more than three months. The frequency was 2.4 GHz (WiFi) with a power output of 100 mW EIRP, which is the maximum power allowed for use by portable laptop computers. Leaves that were two feet from the WiFI access point developed a metallic luster appearance, a discoloration of the leaves that appeared to result in the disappearance of the outer cell layer of the leaves. The metallic luster was then followed by desiccation and death of a portion of the leaf. If  three months of exposure to WiFi microwaves adversely affects the leaves of trees what is it doing to the growing bodies of children who sit for hours each day in school two feet away from a WiFi enabled laptop computer or a ceiling mounted WiFi access point?
Recent studies show low level Radio Frequency (RF) harm Aspen trees
Aspen decline has been reported in North America over the past half century and rapid mortality of aspen clones has been observed in Colorado since 2004 and has become a major concern for environmentalists, scientists, and foresters. In one experiment, published February 2010 in
The International Journal of Forestry Research, scientists constructed mock-shielded cages and faraday-shielded cages in the forest just outside of Lyons, Colorado. The mock cage shielded aspen seedlings only from direct light – while the faraday cage shielded seedlings from all forms of radio frequency radiation originating from the town of Lyons in the frequency range of 1 MHz to 3 GHz. This includes radio broadcast signals as well as cell phone and WiFi signals. The researchers discovered that the tree seedlings growing inside the radio frequency-shielded cages were much larger and healthier than those in both the mock-shielded cages and in the unshielded controls.  The authors report  that the background levels of radio frequency radiation may be adversely affecting leaf and shoot growth and inhibiting fall production of anthocyanins (these are the pigments associated with leaf senescence in trembling aspen seedlings). These results suggest that exposure to the RF radiation generated by our wireless technology may be an underlying factor in the recent rapid decline of aspen populations.  

In the figure above, mock-shielded seedlings on the left and RF-shielded seedlings on the right, the latter showing more total leaf area, stronger fall leaf coloration, and minimal leaf necrosis.  

Pick of the Week #20: Early Research on the Biological Effects of Microwave Radiation: 1940-1960

February 21, 2011.  The early research on biological effects of microwave radiation between 1940-1960 is reviewed by Cook and colleagues and is available
here for download as a pdf.

Two overriding considerations shaped the development of early research on the biological effects of microwave radiation-possible medical application (diathermy) and uncertainty about the hazards of exposure to radar. Reports in the late 1940s and early 1950s of hazards resulting from microwave exposure led to the near abandonment of medical research related to microwave diathermy at the same time that military and industrial concern over hazards grew, culminating in the massive research effort known as ‘the Tri-Service program’ (1957-1960). Both the early focus on medical application and the later search for hazards played important roles in dictating how this field of research developed as a science.

Pick of the Week #19: Index of Publications on Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Radiation (0-1 00 GHz)

February 20, 2011.  Thirty years ago, James Kinn with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Elliot Postow with Naval Medical R&D Command compiled a list of 3627 publications on the biological effects of electromagnetic radiation from 1 to 100 GHz.  This 574 page document has been scanned and converted into a searchable pdf document that is available here.  The references in this document are listed by title and author.


Considerable research effort has been made into the biological effects of electromagnetic radiation over the frequency range of 0-100 GHz. This work intensified since 1966 when occupational exposure guidelines were made by the American Standards Institute – C95.9. During this period and especially in the last several years it has become clear that a cumulative bibliography of peer reviewed publications reporting this research was needed. This publication lists 3627 articles published in world literature dealing with the biological effects of electromagnetic radiation over the frequency range of 0-100 GHz. The contents have been compiled from the data bases of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Navy Department. The bibliography covers the published work that was available to March 1980.

The book deals with problems of the effect of the microwave field on the organism, which are becoming more pressing with each passing year, since the power outputs of microwave generators are being increased and more and more persons are being exposed to this factor. The monograph consists of three parts. The Introduction deals with the biological bases of the action of microwave electromagnetic radiation on the organism. Parts I and II set forth experimental material on the influence of high and low microwave intensities on the animal organism, characterizing the functional changes of the organism’s basic systems and its metabolism. Also considered is the question of damage due to microwaves combined with other factors and changes in the organism’s immunological reactivity, the properties of bacteria, viruses, and simple animals.
Part III of the book is devoted to the influence of microwaves on the human organism and sets forth data acquired as a result of observations on volunteers as to the influence of low microwave intensities on the healthy human organism; it sets forth the symptomatology, stages, reversibility of changes, and a classification for the pathological processes that arise under the influence of microwaves in persons working with microwave generators. The book examines problems in the etiology and pathogenesis of sequelae to exposure to microwave radiation, characterizing the significance of microwaves and factors operating concurrently with them in the appearance of pathological changes, and indicating the basic pathogenic mechanisms of the pathological changes that arise under the influence of microwaves. It also presents material characterizing the application of microwaves to treat patients. The last chapter is devoted to protection from and prevention of detrimental effects of microwaves on the human organism. It cites the maximum permissible microwave radiation levels, characterizes means for individual and collective protection from the harmful effects of microwaves, and presents experimental material on the use of drugs to prevent detrimental after effects of microwave exposure. The Conclusion sets forth concisely the basic premises of the problem of microwave effects on the organism as reflected in the monograph and takes note of problems that require further study. The book contains 24 illustrations, 36 tables, and a bibliography of 521 citations. Click here to read the Conclusions (10 pages).

"Live Blood and Electrosmog"
This is what Dr. Havas told me --  The test she talks about is called "Live Blood Analysis," by which a drop of your blood can be observed by the specialist under the microscope.  Normal blood cells look round, and are independent and separated from each other.  Blood cells damaged by EMF would appear like what she calls "Rouleaux", which are sausage-like, or worm-like, structures with a lot of compressed blood cells, i.e., the blood cells are compressed against each other inside this long structure.  She explained that by this compression, blood cells are not properly able to get oxygen and they can easily develop cancer.
