Mobile Phones – the Truth

Science-based cellphone radiation protection

There are many devices on the market sold without any tenable evidence.

Fortunately there is a science-based solution that can reduce the influence of cellphone radiation. To understand it, you need first to know how the damage works:

1. The nature of the influence

The radiation causes formation of free radicals. If the radiation generates more free radicals in the tissues than the body can neutralize so called oxidative stress occurs. There are individual differences in the ability to protect the body against oxidative stress.

Probably it is mostly those who have weaker protection against free radicals experience a negative influence from exposure to mobile phone radiations.

There are people who have been strongly exposed for many years without any symptoms and diseases. These probably have strong biochemical defenses against the radiation perhaps both through the powerful antioxidants that our cells produce and by eating powerful antioxidant foods. Also the condition of the individual, especially the level of stress probably contributes to antioxidant capacity.

I think much of the controversy regarding the effect of cellphone radiation is because there are considerable individual differences in antioxidant capacity. I think it is necessary to consider this  aspect in order to get a proper understanding. It cannot be excluded that only people with weak defenses are affected by ordinary cellphone usage to a significant extent.

2. How to reduce  the impact

Antioxidants

These substances neutralize the free radicals. Generous daily use of antioxidants reduces the impact of cellphone radiation to an important extent.

We want to emphasize that generally, the officially recommended daily allowance for important antioxidant vitamins are generally far to low.

Below you find some of the most important antioxidants.

Vitamin C. It is a very effective and valuable antioxidant for the whole body including the brain. It appears to play an important role in the brain, and its concentration is 10 times greater there than in the blood. The stores of vitamin C in the brain are the last ones to be depleted, indicating that it plays a very important, not yet fully understood role.

The Recommended Daily intake (RDI) is in most countries 10-20 times too low for Vitamin C. It is non-toxic and can therefore be taken generously in gram-sized-doses, preferably in Slow-release tablets.

The requirement is dependent on the health and stress level of the person as well as the ability to produce own antioxidants. Therefor the dose needs to be adapted individually. For best possible protection, take the “bowel tolerance dose“. This is the dose you can take without the mild, completely harmless gastrointestinal reaction that occurs when the body gets more than it needs. Dr Sandra Goodman has written a good text about finding out the Vitamin C  dose you need. When ill, you may need tens of grams and this will have a beneficial effect.

Vitamin C was actually produced by our ancestors until about 60 million years ago, when a genetic defect occurred so that we lost the ability to produce this vitamin. All other mammals are able to produce Vitamin C except a few more mammal species. The biochemistry of other mammals is otherwise the same. So Vitamin C is a perfectly natural and necessary substance for our health, and that we may need very high doses of it when ill.

If you don’t take any other antioxidant, do take vitamin C , but better follow the advice below.

Selenium plays a very important role. It is required for key antioxidant enzymes as well as for DNA repair. It is a must in the parts of the world where the soils are deficient in Selenium including  parts of North and South America, parts of Central and Northern Europe including Scandinavia. Important not to take Selenium selenite or Selenium selenate, they are harmful. Take Selenium mentionate or Selenium bound to yeast or amino acids (chelates). Seaweed and Kelp are usually good sources.
Iodine is a powerful brain antioxidant. Daily intake of Seaweed and kelp is a good habit.
Vitamin E is likewise important, but not as synthetic alpha tocopherol, which is the most sold preparation in pharmacies. It is better to use the tocotrienols, especially alpha-tocotrienol according to a recent study, see “Gifted Vitamin E protects the brain against stroke..“. Red palm kernel oil is especially rich.
Antoxidant foods and spices
We go into some detail here, because there are very powerful food antioxidants, and by just improving your food habits you can increase your protection to an important extent.
Especially the colorful berries are rich in antioxidants. The Indian Amla berry is very valuable. Cranberries, blueberries, lingon berries, raspberries, blackberries, Goji berries, cherries, dark plums, dark red or violet grapes (like Concord) are all strongly antioxidant.
Among spices, Turmeric deserves special mention. It is especially rich in powerful antioxidants. Many other spices as well. Cinnamon, basil, oregano, rosemary, ginger are among the highest ranked.
Among vegetables, Artichoke Hearts are highly ranked, kale, spinach and tomatoes as well. Small red beans, Pinto beans, red kidney beans.

DNA damage prevention and repair

For prevention

scientists say there is reason to believe vitamin D3 is able to stabilize the structure of DNA so that it is not damaged by free radicals. Vitamin E has also been found to be able to prevent DNA damage and even repair it in some instances.

For the repair of DNA,

  • Selenium. In addition to being necessary for antioxidant enzymes, it is required for DNA repair.
  • Betacarotene Found in carrots and many other vegetables.
  • Quercetin also stimulates DNA repair. Apples and Citrus fruits are good sources. All berries likewise, especially elderberries and blueberries. It is also found in cruciferous veggies, including broccoli, cabbage and sprouts. Leafy green veggies, including spinach, kale. Onions.

This list is incomplete. I wanted just to mention some of the most common and easily available foods for this purpose.

There is not yet sufficient research to establish to what extent these substances can protect and repair the DNA, but already available knowledge indicates that the effect is substantial so there are good reasons to use these foods, also because they also have many other positive health effects. For good results it is wise to be well provided with said substances along with a high level of antioxidant protection.
