As one who was trained in physics I can assure you that all magnetic fields have an effect on the environment. This is better illustrated when a superconducting magnet is used to produce an intense enough feild so high in fact that even water is easily manipulated in its field. Anyone observing this should not have to think twice that even the realitively weak 5W output of a bag phone is going to affect the matter in your body as well. It will not be as dramatic, but who says it has to be? We do not know how much energy it takes to cause mutation of the DNA strand and the 5W actiong on a single strand is an enourmous amount of energy at the molecular level.
We should be very affraid of all the EMF we spray nonchalantly into the environment
- the cummulative effects of the induced electrostatic and electromagnetic fields is probably a factor in the increasing rate of cancer worldwide (that and smoking/exhaust/factory stacks).
