2016 | Dr. Andrew A. Marino on the Hazards of EMFs and RF Microwave Radiation
Are SAR measurements useful in your research?
In connection with understanding mobile phone fields, none whatsoever. I think they’re meaningless with regard to that application.
Why are SAR measurements meaningless?
Several reasons. First you need to understand where SAR came from. I was there when SAR was invented. Richard Phillips, Don Justison, Saul Michaelson, Herman Schwann, these were men who created SAR, whose mind gave rise to it.
And the reason they did was because they were interested in developing microwave ovens and in understanding how to cook meat. And it’s useful for understanding how to cook meat. But it has no application whatsoever, that I have ever seen suggested or advanced, for understanding mobile phones.
SAR works for dead muscle. It has just no applicability in my opinion for live brain.
Why are SAR measurements not applicable to the live brain?
Because the health hazards associated with mobile phone fields have nothing to do with heat. So it makes no sense to say, “I have a really great way of measuring heat” when the measurement of heat is irrelevant to understanding health hazards. Any measurement that you make that has no connection with what you’re interested in is just a waste of time.
SAR can produce a lot of data and when the calculations of SAR are done they can produce beautiful pictures but the pictures are arbitrary and the measurements are meaningless. It’s quite clear that that’s the case.
dBm (decibel-milliwatts) is an abbreviation for the power ratio in decibels (dB) of the measured power referenced to one milliwatt (1 mW = 1/1,000 of a Watt). It is used in radio, microwave and fiber-optic communication networks as a convenient measure of absolute power because of its capability to express both very large and very small values in a short form.
- Current Microwave Radio-Frequency Radiation (RFR) exposure levels in 2018 = Premature Diseases of Aging.
- All that is needed to make a call or text is RF Microwave radiation of -75 dBm (0.018 µW/m²)
- RF Microwave radiation higher than -75 dBm (0.018 µW/m²) is hazardous, which makes densified 4G/5G so-called “Small Cell” cellphone towers installed in residential zones unacceptable.
