Are Microwaves a/the Major Causal Factor in CFS/ME?

by Professor Art Kab

The Evidence:
1. The symptoms of CFS/ME mimic those of what the Russians called "Radio Wave Illness" but in modern parlance can be described as "Microwave Sickness."

2. People with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME feel better at night - when there are less people using their cell phones and hence less electro-smog.

3. "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" or "Yuppie Flu" started to become prevalent in the mid 80s in the US and other parts of the world just as commercial cellular phone networks were being set up in the United States and other parts of the world.

4. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME and a number of other similar syndromes (autism, ADHD, Alzheimer's, etc) increased exponentially in the early 90s with the spread of
digital cellular phone technology.

5. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME, Autism, and ADHD are found to be more prevalent in countries where a plethora of cell phone networks and electrosmog are present, while being just about absent in those countries with few like Myanmar, Nepal, Burma, and Laos.

6. Microwaves have been shown in studies to cause "subliminal" stress which causes the adrenals to excrete more cortisone and adrenaline leading to adrenal exhaustion. Adrenal exhaustion is a major factor in CFS/ME.

7. Microwaves have been shown in studies to decrease the numbers of Natural Killer (NK) cells. Low numbers of Natural Killer Cells are found in People With Chronic
Fatigue Syndrome (PWC) or ME, and are thought to be responsible for the reactivation of viral infections found in PWC.

8. Microwaves have been shown in studies to cause Oxidative Damage leading to a decrease in SOD (superoxide dimutase), catalase, glutathione, CoQ10 along with evidence of increased byproducts of oxidative stress to cell membranes, MDA. People with CFS/ME are also found to be deficient in these antioxidents.

9. Studies have shown a decrease 5-HT in the blood of those exposed to microwaves. 5-HT is responsible for the production of serotonin. Low levels of seratonin have been linked to anxiety and depression. Anxiety and depression are symptoms commonly found in People With CFS (PWC) or ME.

10. Microwaves are known to affect a decrease in norepinephrine. Norepinephrine is essential for control of the autonomous nervous system. The autonomous nervous system is known to be affected in people with CFS/ME and in Japan , CFS/ME is now often diagnosed as Autonomous Nervous System Disorder. Norepinephrine is also connected with short-term memory disturbances and depression, both of which are found in PWC.

11. Melatonin production is altered by exposure to microwaves. Melatonin is necessary for sleep. Irregular sleep patterns and insomnia are symptoms associated with CFS/ME.

12. Red blood cells are altered and their number decreased by exposure to microwave radiation. Red blood cells are responsible for the transportation of oxygen to cells
in the brain and other organs of the body. Lack of oxygen to the brain and other organs can result in brain fog, inability to concentrate, dizziness, and nausea and these symptoms are not only found in CFS/ME but also in altitude sickness, caused by a lack of oxygen being transported to the brain and other organs.

13. EMF exposure has been shown to increase viruses, bacteria, mold, and yeast in blood. These pathogens are all common in PWC.

14. Studies have shown an adverse effect of microwaves on the eyes. PWC often complain of problems with their eyes and vision deteriorization.

15. Some EMF frequencies have been shown to induce restlessness. PWC often have restless leg syndrome (RLS).

16. Microwaves have also been shown in studies to affect a decrease in dopamine production. PWC have been found to often have low levels of dopamine and decreased dopamine has been linked to depression.

17. The eyes, CNS, heart, and testicles are known to be most sensitive to microwaves and other EMFs. These are also often found to be affected in PWC.

18. It has been documented that people who have had a cell phone tower installed near their homes suddenly start having the following symptoms: headaches, dizziness, inability to concentrate, memory problems, fatigue, worsening vision, swollen lymph nodes, nausea, and decreased appetite. All these symptoms have been found in people with CFS/ME.

19. It has been found in CFS/ME (and autism) via SPECT scans that there is decreased blood flow to the brain. Studies have shown that electromagnetic fields, like those from cell phones, alter regional cerebral blood flow.

20. PWC often suffer from allergies. Allergies involve the production of histamine by mast cells. Microwaves have been known to turn on mast cells to produce more histamine and other EMFs have been to shown to actually increase the number of mast cells in the body.

21. In workers occupationally exposed long-term to microwaves, a lower value of T-helper/T-suppressor (T4/T8) ratio were found. PWC have a lower than normal ratio of T4/T8.

22.People with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME often have a coagulation dysfunction. Microwaves have been shown to alter blood coagulation.

23. People with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME usually have a dysfunctional pineal gland. It is known that microwaves and other EMR affect the pineal gland. This tiny organ in the center of the cranium has turned out to be more than the vaguely defined 'third eye' of the mystics. It produces melatonin and seratonin, two hormones that, among other things, directly control all biocycles. Very small magnetic fields influence the pineal gland. Several research groups have shown that applying a magnetic field of half a gauss or less, oriented so as to add to or subtract from the earth's normal field, will increase or decrease production of pineal melatonin and seratonin. Other groups have observed physical changes in the gland's cells in response to such fields.

24. People with CFS/ME usually go on to develop heart problems. Microwaves are also known to adversely affect the heart:

By 1971, when they presented their work at a momentous conference in Warsaw , Zinaida V. Gordon and Maria N. Sadchikova of the USSR Institute of Labor Hygiene and Occupational Diseases had identified a comprehensive series of symptoms, which they called microwave sickness. Its first signs are low blood pressure and slow pulse. The latter and most common manifestations are chronic excitation of the sympathetic nervous system (stress syndrome) and high blood pressure.

This phase also often includes headaches, dizziness, eye pain, sleepiness, irritability, anxiety, stomach pain, nervous tension, inability to concentrate, hair loss, plus an increased incidence of appendicitis, cataracts, reproductive problems and cancer. The chronic symptoms are succeeded by crises of adrenal exhaustion and ischemic HEART DISEASE [emphasis added] (blockage of coronary arteries and heart attack). pp.314-315

Heart-attack rates in North Karelia and Kuopio, Finland, became the highest (and most swiftly increasing) in the world within a few years after the Soviets installed a gigantic over-the-horizon radar complex that bounced microwaves off the surface of Lake Ladoga and throughout these parts of south-eastern Finland.
