Soviet Proof That Cell Phones Do Cause Brain Damage

Evidence that Soviet scientists used mobile phone radiation to cause brain damage more than 20 years ago has been suppressed, it will be revealed today.
Intelligence documents have been censored to hide the fact that Western governments have long been aware of the deadly danger of microwaves.
Yet when it was announced earlier this week that Swedish scientists have conducted similar experiments showing mobile phone use could lead to an increased risk of multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases their finding were again dismissed.
Today, Alasdair Philips, a leading researcher into the effects of microwave radiation, will reveal to a London conference into mobile phone adverse health effects that he has uncovered copies of the original papers which back up claims made by the Swedish team.
Mr Philips, who runs Cambridge-based consumer group Powerwatch, said: “It is mind-numbing that people are still trying to claim there is no scientific evidence that mobiles could be harmful.”
“People need to be given the full facts so that they make up their own minds and take precautions to guard against harmful effects.” But vital paragraphs had been removed when American Defense Intelligence Agency Documents into Soviet microwave radiation research were published earlier this year in Tim Rifat’s ‘REMOTE VIEWING’ study.
Later, when a campaigner in Northern Ireland applied for a copy of the document DST-1810S-074076 as evidence in the battle against mobile phone masts in schools, she was sent a sheaf of virtually blank pages.
The uncensored documents reveal that Soviet military scientists has successfully used microwaves of the type used by mobile phones to weaken the blood brain barrier. This is meant to protect the brain from harmful substances in the blood.
According to Dr Louis Slesin, editor of American specialist journal Microwave News, US army scientists had succeeded in duplicating the Soviet experiments by 1977 – eight years before mobile phones became generally available in Britain. But Britain’s 17 million mobile users have been told repeatedly by the industry and Government-funded bodies that there is no scientific evidence that mobiles can cause harmful effects.
Dr Allan Frey, who carried out some of the earliest American research, believes there is “significant evidence” against mobile phones. Dr Frey’s own papers reveal that the US Defense Department withdrew funding after three studies had confirmed these effects.
