Public Exposure: DNA, Democracy and the Wireless Revolution - A Must-See Documentary on the Dangers of Cell Phone Use

Approximately 60,000 to 70,000 cell phones are sold each day in the United States. Over 110 million Americans use cell phones. And worldwide, it is estimated that approximately 1 billion people use cell phones. As the number of cell phones, cell phone towers, and other wireless antennas increase rapidly in industrialized nations, should you be concerned about the effects that regular exposure to radio frequency radiation can have on your health?

If you're not concerned about the effect that wireless devices and broadcasting antennas can have on your health, I encourage you to view "Public Exposure: DNA, Democracy and the Wireless Revolution," a documentary that provides the best overall look at the connection between radio frequency radiation and human health that I have ever come across.

The full documentary can be viewed below in two parts, courtesy of Google video and

In case you don't have time to view this documentary, here are some highlights that I jotted down during my first viewing:

  1. Regular exposure to radio frequency radiation may interfere with the electrical fields of our cells. Common health challenges that have been linked to regular exposure to radio frequency radiation include:

    • Abnormal cell growth and damage to cellular DNA
    • Difficulty sleeping, depression, anxiety, and irritability
    • Childhood and adult leukemia
    • Eye cancer
    • Immune system suppression
    • Attention span deficit and memory loss
    • Infertility

  2. Children are at much higher risk than adults of experiencing health problems related to regular exposure to radio frequency radiation; thinner and smaller skulls translate to greater absorption of radio frequency.

  3. From the early 1950's to the mid 1970's, the U.S. embassy in Moscow was purposefully bombarded by radio frequency radiation 24 hours a day. The U.S. embassy workers experienced what the perpetrators identified as "Radio Frequency Sickness Syndrome."

    After some time of concentrated radio frequency radiation exposure, the American ambassador developed leukemia. The next American ambassador also developed leukemia. Blood tests performed on embassy staff members showed irreversible DNA damage.

  4. Dr. Jerry Phillips, a biochemist researcher, began studying cell phone safety for Motorola more than a decade ago. When he started generating data that indicated that cell phones have negative effects on human health, Motorola took a number of steps to delay publication of Dr. Phillips' work.

    According to Dr. Phillips, Motorola's main concerns with his data were how to handle public relations and how to spin the results in a way that was favorable to the industry.

    Dr. Phillips also indicates that the only significant money that is available to do research on cell phone safety issues is industry money. This is why he has no faith in studies that are coming out.

  5. You can use a radio and microwave detector to measure the amount of harmful radiation that your living and work spaces are penetrated by. The detector used in the documentary is called the "Microalert Radio/Microwave Alarm."

    Silver mesh curtains and copper flat paint can block significant amounts of radio frequency radiation.

Unfortunately, many of us have little control over the location of cell phone towers and other broadcasting antennas that emit powerful radio frequency waves. If you know of or discover any resources that our readers can use to locate such towers and antennas in their local areas, please share this information in the comments section below.

By increasing public awareness of this issue, we stand a greater chance of having municipal, state/provincial, and federal governments do a better job of regulating the placement of cell phone towers and antennas. Governments in Austria, Switzerland, and many Eastern European countries have already created protective standards for human exposure to radio frequency radiation. In Scotland, towers are not allowed to be located near hospitals, schools, and homes.

Please consider sharing this documentary with family members and friends. Thank you.

P.S. If you're interested in getting a simple device - called a Gauss meter - that can help you discover any EMF "hot spots" that might exist in your living and work areas, have a look at the Cell Sensor EMF Detector - it's relatively inexpensive, and it's what I use to test our home and office from time to time.

Cell phones can not ever be "safe". Holding a high microwave emf radiation device to your head is insane. There is a secret agenda going about cell phone technology that is shocking to all. How it control your brainwaves and can destroy your brain, permanetly! This is not to be taking lightly, the truth has to come out!

For those of you that are truly worried about exposure to microwave radioation, visit It is filled with information on all of the dangers of cell towers, and inexpensive products (orgonite) to protect yourself and loved ones. It makes sense that if the radiation is damaging humans, it is damaging the entire ecosystems around it as well. You can begin healing the damage done to the atmosphere by this microwave radiation with simple orgonite.

To search for current and future cell towers and antennas near you, go to
One search using your address will give you:

Existing Towers: Registered and Non-Registered structures where antennas are placed. Towers may be used for various services including Cellular, Paging, Microwave and others.

Future Towers: Newly filed (or pending) applications to construct new towers. Application info includes location coordinates and detailed ownership data.

Antennas: The actual emitters of radio signals. Antennas can be placed on towers (multiple) or can be installed stand alone on top of existing buildings. Stand alone antennas are small (well below 200 ft). You may also check multiple antennas to determine which cell phone carriers are located on a particular tower.

I've realized lately that my house was humming and it was not just the motor of my refrigerator. For the past three years I've not been able to get a good nites rest in my bdrm of which my master bath is facing east; what I've realized is when I enter my bedroom I would feel a strong wave of some sort. I finally had no more to suspect when as I gazed out of my window less than a city block away is a cell phone tower. My dog, my daughter, and I, have been experiencing ear pressure and headaches, I am grinding my teeth at night, my daughter complains constantly, and the dog shakes his head and rubs his ears with his paws, we cannot get a diagnosis. I really need help with this, I truly believe that we are being affected terribly. I cannot recall how long this tower has been there, but a smaller tower was erected a few years ago right next to it. I live in town called Burliegh, NJ, with a Cape May Court House zip code of 08210. I've been reading that Cape May Court House residents have just voted out the bldg. of a tower in their town and I want to know why Burliegh residents did not get that same right to vote on it.

I am so sorry to hear that people as young as yourselves are suffering with this. I had to write and share what I know about it. It is referred to as electro-hypersensitivity when you feel the microwaves. When you hear them like the sound of a droning plane or HUM as it's called it's referred to as the Microwave Auditory Effect or Frey Effect.

To get relief you will have to turn off all wireless devices, stay wired with phone and computers. For added relief while sleeping I run a fan. I even took my bed off of it's metal bed stand.

It's funny last year I went to NJ to get relief from my local towers here in Ontario Canada, our tower is over ten stories tall with multiple frequency uses. I saw some heavy duty cell towers in NJ though, the people in the hotels though I wanted wifi service they kept trying to put me close to the towers.

It is important to know you are not the only one, many people in europe and UK are already waging a battle to get the WHO to acknowledge the negative health impacts from cell phones and their base stations.

A document that you might want to look up is the Bioinitive Report written by scientist and health care professionals.

Best wishes I hope this helps.

I have the same thing in my house ,my ears ring, I have been going to a neurologist for tremors, balance problems, burning chronic pain on my skin, pain in the top of my head, sleep problems,my whole body feels as if i plugged myself into an outlet (i guess from the tremors)??? My doctor-MD said live with it your getting older and my neurologist is trying to deaden my symptoms with antiseizure medications!!! I threw away my microwave 6 months ago and now I am definetely getting rid of the cell-phone. There is something in my house I am going to find out -even my daughter said that there was an eletromagnetic field in my bedroom she could feel it.

Bridgewater State College, Bridgewater, MA has a cell tower within a few hundred feet from one of its dormitories. My daughter is not far from it as well, but it is not ouside her window like it is at the other dorm. Makes me wonder what kind of exposure these kids are getting at that close a range. They are scary looking towers!!! It was erected some time last year. Obviously no information was sent to students letting them know that a cell tower would be placed right next to the dorms. Guess it might stir up controversy w/parents if they made students aware of its installation. I am one parent that is NOT happy with the situation, but because there is so little information out there that is getting to the public regarding exposure to these frequencies, they think you are paranoid. I am I guess :)

Thanks for your very informative website. It is worrisome to a parent that by the time everyone is aware of the damages that cell phones cause, it will be too late ... like the x-ray fiasco of the 50's and all the other abuses of technology that are just coming to light.

PS. I am a human (I think) and not a spamming robot (I hope)

A friend one day pointed out a fake tree that was over 40 feet tall. It was a cell phone antenna tower. The antennas come in a variety of trees: redwood, palm, etc. I have also heard that various companies will pay individuals to put an antenna tower (tree) on their property. Most people are not receiving balanced information about the possible effects these tower antennas have on the human body. I couldn't believe that I didn't even know that one was at the end of my street. Insidious, isn't it?

Sonoma Valley, California

Try this site for locating cell phone towers and antennas.

The site will tell how many towers and antenna are close by and how far away they are.

There was a study in Germany and one in Israel that indicated that if one lived within 400 meters of a cell tower, that one's chance of developing cancer increased by about 400% (see
