A world class expert on photobiology, shares the hidden dangers of LED lighting to our health that most people are unaware of

“I call these LEDs Trojan horses because they appear so practical to us. They appear to have so many advantages. They save energy; are solid state and very robust,. So we invited them into our homes. But we are not aware that they have many stealth health-robbing properties, which are harmful to your biology, harmful to your mental health, harmful to your retinal health, and also harmful to your hormonal or endocrine health,”

From Dr Mercola

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Near-infrared is important as it primes the cells in your retina for repair and regeneration, which explains why LEDs — which is devoid of infrared — are so harmful for your eyes and health
  • One-third of the energy your body consumes comes from the food you eat. The vast majority of the energy your body needs to maintain the systemic equilibrium comes from environmental infrared light exposure
  • LEDs sabotage health and promote blindness. Limit your exposure to blue light during the daytime and at night. Swap out LEDs for incandescents or low-voltage incandescent halogen lights

Can light affect your health? In this interview, Dr. Alexander Wunsch, a world class expert on photobiology, shares the hidden dangers of light-emitting diode (LED) lighting that most people are completely unaware of.

In fact, this could potentially be one of the most important video interviews I’ve done, as it has enormous impacts — not only on preventing blindness as you age but it is also a pervasive hidden risk factor for sabotaging your health.

Largely as a result of energy efficiency, there’s been a major transition to using LED as a primary indoor light source. In this regard, it worked like a charm, reducing energy requirements by as much as 95 percent compared to incandescent thermal analog sources of lighting.

However, the heat generated by incandescent light bulbs, which is infrared radiation, is actually beneficial to your health, and hence worth the extra cost.

There are major downsides to LEDs that are not fully appreciated. LED lighting may actually be one of the most important, non-native EMF radiation exposures you’re exposed to on a daily basis.

If you chose to ignore these new insights, it can have very serious long-term ramifications. It could lead to age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which is the leading cause of blindness in the United States and elsewhere.

Other health problems rooted in mitochondrial dysfunction may also be exacerbated, and these run the gamut from metabolic disorder to cancer.

The town facing a ‘humanitarian crisis caused by the radiation from state-of-the-art street lamps’: Residents have endured insomnia, nose bleeds and even stillbirths, one local claims

Note, I and some of our readers have been watching these lamps here in NZ. They came & changed all the bulbs very recently in the Horowhenua, and I heard Whanganui as well. Have heard reports of kids being ill following that in Whanganui at least. I have heard also that some of them have cameras. These are lamps featured in the smart city (agenda 21) models & will link to the incoming 5G.  Supposed to assist with traffic flow, parking etc among other things. That’s the ostensible rationale for their existence. Locally, feedback suggests it is control of dimming & brightening the lights. They are certainly now way brighter. Watch out for them in your neighbourhood.

From dailymail.co.uk

  • Mark Steele is aware of three women who lost babies since lights were installed
  • One local resident gave birth to a deformed child that survived just three hours
  • Research suggests light transmitters prevent healthy cell and gene expression
  • Such radiation has been linked to cancer, insomnia and mental-health disorders
  • Past research found Wi-Fi radiation increases the risk of miscarriages by 50% 
  • Gateshead council firmly denies ever having used 5G technology in lighting

Radiation given off by state-of-the-art street lamps is wreaking havoc on the residents of Gateshead, according to local Mark Steele.

He said people living in the area are experiencing symptoms of insomnia, nose bleeds and several women have even endured the horror of stillbirths since the introduction of LED lamps that he believes emit 5G radiation.

In his circle alone, Mr Steele, 58, is aware of three women have lost their children since the lights were installed in September 2016, with one giving birth to a deformed child that survived just three hours.

Mr Steele, who was part of the IEEE, which claims to be ‘the world’s largest technical professional organisation dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity’, said: ‘We are seeing babies dying in the womb as these transmitters are situated outside people’s bedroom windows. It’s a humanitarian crisis.’

Earlier this week Gateshead council put out a Facebook post encouraging people to ignore ‘conspiracy theories’ about the dangers of 5G radiation, adding ‘there is no scientific basis or credible evidence for any of these scare stories’.

In a Facebook post yesterday, Gateshead Council dismissed concerns over the borough's street lights as 'entirely false conspiracy theories' with 'no scientific basis or credible evidence'

In a Facebook post yesterday, Gateshead Council dismissed concerns over the borough’s street lights as ‘entirely false conspiracy theories’ with ‘no scientific basis or credible evidence’

According to Professor Ulrich Warnke, from the University of Saarland, EMF radiation, which is given out by light transmitters, causes disruption to the body’s nitrogen monoxide system, which keeps cells healthy and controls gene expression.

The European Academy for Environmental Medicine (EUROPAEM) – EMF working group notes such radiation has been linked to cancer, insomnia and mental-health disorders.

UK telecoms regulator Ofcom reportedly plans to launch 5G services, such as lamps and cell towers, throughout Britain by 2020. There are rumours Gateshead is taking part in a ‘secret Government trial’ by rolling out the technology in the borough before then.

‘Such miscarriages didn’t occur before the lamps appeared’ 

Mr Steele said: ‘We’ve got people bleeding from the nose in my locality.

‘We’ve got people who can’t sleep from neurological disorders.

‘What about the poor women across Gatehead who are losing babies at nearly full term?

‘What about the children who will develop cancer from this 5G roll out?’

‘Microwave radiation increases miscarriages. These didn’t occur before the lamps appeared.’

Mr Steele claims EMF’s damaging effects are evident in the loss of wildlife from his local area.

While driving around Gateshead, which Mr Steele claims has more than 37,000 EMF-emitting lamps, he said: ‘[There are] no small birds in [the] surrounding trees.

‘The sparrows have been annihilated; they’ve wiped out the flying insects.’

Gateshead Council denies ‘completely false’ claims 

In a Facebook post, which has been shared more than 1,200 times, Gateshead Council announced yesterday: ‘Street lights will not induce miscarriages in pregnant women, or cause insomnia, or nosebleeds, and they are not killing all the birds and insects.’

The post adds the borough is not taking part in ‘secret Government trials’ before 5G is rolled out nationwide.

It adds the council has been advised by Public Health England, which reviewed guidance issued by bodies including the World Health Organization, and confirmed the technology carries no health risks.

The post urges people share the statement with those ‘badly frightened’ by the claims and ends with ‘the more people who understand that they are completely false, the better’.

Despite Gateshead council’s claim that they are not using 5G, Mr Steele said: ‘The transmitter operates at 868 – 870 MHz. That is a specific 5G spectrum.

‘The increase in transmitters even if they did operate at 2G – 3G, as the council have stated, would make them 5G’.

Does science support EMF’s risks? 

Previous studies have linked such radiation to ‘internal stress’, which may lead to genetic damage that can cause expectant mothers to miscarry.

Those exposed to the highest levels of EMF radiation are 48 per cent more likely to lose their baby than women exposed to the lowest amounts, according to a 2017 study by the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends MF radiation, to which everyone is exposed to to some extent, be studied for its effect on pregnancies.

The WHO classifies EMF as a ‘possible human carcinogen’ but does not consider electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) a condition. EHS is a claimed sensitivity to EMF, leading to headache, fatigue and stress.

Commenting on the matter, The Parliamentary Assembly from the Council of Europe, said: ‘Waiting for high levels of scientific and clinical proof before taking action to prevent well-known risks can lead to very high health and economic costs, as was the case with asbestos, leaded petrol and tobacco.’

What is being done about it? 

Researchers from a network known as EMF Scientists, which includes doctors from the University of Columbia, are appealing to the UN to encourage the WHO to develop stricter EMF guidelines, while also educating the public on the risks.

In January 2015, the French parliament adopted a comprehensive law that protects the general public from excessive exposure to electromagnetic waves.

Among other things, the legislation has banned Wi-Fi in nurseries for children under three years old. It also requires primary schools teaching children under 11 to only turn Wi-Fi on when it is being used for specific lessons.

As of February 2016, 220 scientists from 42 countries have signed an international Appeal, directed to the UN and WHO, calling for protection from EMF exposure.

According to EUROPAEM, the only treatment for EMF-related illnesses is to eliminate or reduce the radiation source.
