Cell Phones Tied to Erectile Dysfunction 
Investigators from the Cleveland Clinic and other major research institutions have reported that healthy male sperm exposed to cell phone radiation die more quickly and are less healthy than unexposed sperm.   Find out why a new report from medical teams in Austria and Egypt should interest all men. -

The Endangered Male?
(National Institute of Health)
While more than a dozen studies have shown ordinary cellphone radiation damages human sperm at levels that do not produce heat,  a new important preliminary report is sending shock waves through the men's health community. Billions of men keep cell phones in their pockets. This report found that men with serious sexual health problems kept their phones on and in their pockets twice as long as others.  Learn more   
How Cell Phones Affect A Child's Brain
Here, you have a frying pan. You know it gets hot. So you just don't tell your child kid to flip the pancakes for you. You take precautions. You explain things, so kids don't burn their fingers. You wait until they are old enough to understand how to be safe. Why should a cell phone that increases brain, sperm or hearing damage or cancer risk be any different? The bone marrow of a child's head absorbs 10 times more radiation than that of an adult. Of course, it isn't safe, you say, to put microwave radiating cells in fatty tissue. Why should a cell phone that increases sperm, hearing or brain damage or cancer be any different?  Learn more

U.S. Cell Phone Industry Can't Handle the Truth--Snatches Defeat from the Jaws of Victory
Bravo to Maine legislators, led by Rep. Andrea Boland, who passed a law requiring that cell phone manufacturers provide information up front about wireless exposures, rather than keep this information hidden in fine print warnings.  When the jointly passed bill came up for routine ratification,  it was defeated after a full court press by industry.  Here's a big secret:  Unlike their U.S. counterparts, the global cell phone industry endorses the need to tell people directly how to reduce exposures and has even developed its own labels that incorporate advice that EHT has offered for years distance is your friend.  Learn More  
EHT needs your help to complete our infant and toddler brain modeling study to learn the true levels of radiation that young children absorb from wireless devices. Although millions of young children are using devices today, nobody can tell us what this may mean for their health. Learn More about what it means to be a volunteer.
