3.4 How Electromagnetic Radiation Harms People

How Electromagnetic Radiation Harms People
Chronic electromagnetic radiation from the 100 plus Growler jets every day will likely be the most harmful long term effect of living in or visiting an Electromagnetic War Zone. The problem with chronic exposure to radiation is that cancer takes up to 25 years to manifest itself. So the Navy can be killing American citizens for 25 years before it has a major observable effect. Even then, the Navy can claim that the cancer is due to second hand cigarette smoke or some other environmental hazard. Over 20 scientists have submitted detailed analysis of this radiation hazard to the Forest Service. Here we will only briefly summarize some of their major findings. First, we will begin with a brief overview of how electromagnetic radiation interacts with living cells.

What is electromagnetic radiation?
Electromagnetic radiation is energy including energy coming from our sun. We can think of energy as a particle, called a photon, which travels at the speed of light – because it is light.
However, we can also think of energy as an electromagnetic wave – because it is also the basis of electromagnetism. This is called wave- particle duality because energy generally acts as a wave – such as the circle of ripples spreading out in a pond – but energy also can act as a particle such as when a photon of high energy light strikes and breaks up a portion of human cells.

Energy is divided into several categories
Energy comes in a range of vibrations from very high energy – which has a very short wave length – to very low energy which has a very long wave length. High energy includes Gamma Rays, X Rays and Ultra Violet Light. Low energy includes Infrared radiation, terahertz radiation, microwave radiation and radio waves. In between these two extremes is visible light which runs from blue light at one end to red light at the other. This range of energy types is called the electromagnetic spectrum.

Electromagnetic Spectrum


Gamma rays and X rays generally do not make it to the surface of the earth because they are blocked out my the ionosphere in our upper atmosphere. However, medical machines produce X rays and they should be limited because they can cause cancer. The military has been accused of creating Gamma ray and X ray weapons which is why there is a general distrust of the military. Such weapons could kill all life in a region without affecting any of the physical buildings. This type of radiation is called “ionizing” radiation because it physically alters the nature of living cells. All other forms of radiation are called “non-ionizing” radiation.

Ultraviolet radiation is known to cause sun burn and skin cancer. It is a big problem being exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods of time in the summer. Sun screens act by blocking out ultraviolet radiation.

Visible light is generally not regarded as a problem because living organisms have adapted over billions of years to deal with this form of radiation.

Infrared radiation, also called heat, rises off of all living creatures. This is how “night goggles” work by making this heat visible. Because living organisms have adapted to infrared radiation, it is not generally regarded as dangerous.

Terahertz radiation is between infrared radiation and microwave radiation. It is therefore more powerful in terms of potential harm than microwave radiation but not as powerful as infrared radiation which is not as powerful as visible light radiation. The military is known to be experimenting with this form of radiation. Because living organisms have not adapted to this form of radiation, it is generally accepted that chronic exposure to terahertz radiation is not safe.

Microwave radiation is used by many of us who have microwave ovens in our homes. These ovens heat food by emitting microwave radiation. This radiation vibrates water molecules which heats them up thus heating up the food. All living cells are made up primarily of water. Thus, when transmitters emit microwaves of radiation, they are turning our environment into a microwave oven. Microwaves are used in modern RADAR and modern satellite communications. It is generally accepted that chronic exposure to microwave radiation is not safe.

WiFi radiation is a form of microwave radiation. However, it occurs at levels than some claim do not vibrate or otherwise effect living cells. Because it is a new form of radiation that living cells may not have adapted to, there is a question of whether chronic exposure to WiFi radiation is safe.

Radio Waves are the longest and least energetic of all forms of radiation. They are so weak that they are not generally regarded as dangerous. Radio waves are used for radio communication. They are also used for some forms of RADAR. However, the military has used other forms of electromagnetic radiation besides radio waves for RADAR.

Because the military has a history of not being honest or concerned for safety, there is a general distrust of the military. This is why the public is demanding answers to questions about exactly what the Navy has planned for their Electromagnetic Warfare Range. The public wants to know exactly what forms of electromagnetic energy the military plans to use in their interactions between ground transmitters and jet transmitters.

Electromagnetic Frequency Table
Because discussion of electromagnetic forms of radiation sometimes refer to them by their frequency range, below is a conversion table to convert frequencies to their common names.

Common Name

Frequency in Hertz

Gamma Ray

15 or more EHz

X ray

30 Ehz to 30 PHz

Ultraviolet Ray

30 Phz to 800 THz

Visible Light Ray

800 THz to 400 THz

Infrared Radiation

400 THz to 200 THz

Tetrahertz Radiation

200 THz to 1 THz (1000 GHz)

WiFi Radiation

1000 Ghz to 300 GHz

Microwave Radiation

300 GHz to 300 MHz

Radio Waves

300 MHz to 3 Hz

Effects related to size of organism
It is known that the smaller an organism is the greater the threat of harm from electromagnetic radiation. This is because smaller organisms such as birds and bees have a very high surface area to volume ratio. This means that a higher percentage of the organism is exposed to radiation.

Cell Towers
There have been many studies that have found that people living near cell towers have a series of adverse health effects. Chronic exposure to cell tower radiation should therefore be avoided. Adverse effects including childhood leukemia have been seen as far away as 8 kilometers or 4 miles. Other major health problems include cancers, neurological conditions,
ADD, sleep disorders, depression, Autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, cognitive problems, cardiovascular irregularities, hormone disruption, immune system disorders, metabolism
changes, stress, fertility impairment, increased blood brain barrier permeability, mineral disruption, DNA damage, etc.


Microwave Research Department of the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research states,
"Microwave energy in the range 1 to 5 GHz, a militarily important range, penetrates all organ systems of the body and thus puts all organ systems at risk. Frequencies from about 700 MHz to 1,000 MHz interact most efficiently with human tissue to yield the greatest energy absorption.

The following is a study of 2000 Korean War veterans confirming that high or chonirc radar exposure increases mortality years later.


Amateur Ham radio operators also showed increased mortality:


Clearly chronic high energy microwave radiation will increase fatalities on the Olympic Peninsula. Here is what six doctors and researchers who study this issue had to say:

Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt: “...exposure to microwave and EMF is significantly harmful to all health and life itself.”
Dr. George Carlo: “There’s a major health crisis coming, probably already underway ... cancers, learning disabilities, ADD, Autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, psychological/behavioral problems.”
Dr. Gerard Hyland, a physicist, twice nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine, says, "Existing safety guidelines for cell phone towers are completely inadequate ... Quite justifiably, the public remains skeptical of attempts by governments and industry to reassure them that
all is well, particularly given the unethical way in which they often operate symbiotically so as
to promote their own vested interests.”
Dr Annie Sasco, PhD. who worked 22 years in W.H.O.’s International Agency for Research in Cancer (IARC), including nine as Group Leader, then was Unit Chief of Epidemiology for Cancer Prevention said: “Despite the voices of industry- funded scientists saying otherwise there is concrete evidence that mobiles/cellphones and wi-fi cause cancer in humans.”
Nobel Co-laureate Dr Devra Davis has two videos that provide critical formation about how all wireless devices cell phones, cordless phones, wi-fi, cell towers etc.) harm our health.

On December 12, 2012, the American Academy of Pediatrics sent a letter to  the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) warning of dangers to children because of current radiation Exposure Limits. New standards are needed!


How much radiation will be emitted during each day of warfare?
A standard microwave over uses 1000 watts or 1 kilowatt. According to a 2013 article in Scientific American, “There are about 285,000 cell towers in the United States. Each uses one to five kilowatts of power. “

Thus each cell tower uses about five microwave ovens worth of energy and likely produces five times the amount of radiation as a microwave oven. Because each of the Navy's three mobile emitters uses 100 Kilowatts, each mobile transmitter is the equivalent of about 20 normal cell towers or about 100 microwave ovens. The stationary transmitter at Pacific Beach is ten times worse. It is the equivalent of 200 cell towers or 1000 microwave ovens. But all of this is nothing compared to a single Growler jet. It is the equivalent of 2000 cell towers or 10,000 microwave ovens. People will certainly be harmed by all of this radiation. And the people who will be harmed most will be the children attending the elementary school neat the Navy's Pacific Beach Stationary tower emitter.


What is even more scarey is the fact that more than 100 Growlers will be attacking the people in Forks every day. With each one being worth 2000 cell towers of radiation, the grand total for the day will exceed 200,000 cell towers. It will be like moving nearly every cell tower in the US to the western slopes of the Olympic Mountains!


Other Star Wars Radiation Weapons
Growler jets are not the only new trick up the Navy's sleeve. They also have created an electronic warfare super weapon called Champ - Counter Intelligence High Powered Advanced Missile Program. This electronic warfare super weapon, can knock out a country’s entire electric grid! With no harm to structures. Made by Boeing and using High Powered Microwave Pulse radiation, the Navy will certainly be looking to get in some target practice with this. “We took out everything...” boasted one Navy tester. During the test, the CHAMP missile emitted bursts of high-powered energy, turning off all computers and electrical appliances in its path – just like a power outage only without the power outage. "This technology marks a new era in modern-day warfare," said Keith Coleman, CHAMP program manager for Boeing Phantom Works. "In the near future, this technology may be used to render an enemy’s electronic and data systems useless even before the first troops or aircraft arrive." http://www.boeing.com/Features/2012/10/bds_champ_10_22_12.htm

How many F18 Growler jets will fly in with each wave?
The way growlers work, by using computers to triangulate in on their targets, there will need to be at least three per wave. Currently, there are four to five per squadron. But the plan is to quickly up the number to eight Growlers per attack. Why so many? It has to do with a hidden problem that growlers have. They can fly really fast – over 1000 miles per hour – and make a hell of a lot of noise and put off a hell of a lot of radiation in the process. But there is a penalty for consuming this much energy. The Growlers quickly run out of gas! A Growler cannot be in the air for more than about 2 hours at a time. This because they burn twice the amount of fuel as the Prowlers. They therefore need to do their thing and head back to the aircraft carrier to get more fuel. The enemy surely will know this and will likely just turn off their radar stations and wait for the growlers to leave. Therefore the Navy wants continuous coverage. This plan requires a lot of growlers. The will be coming into and out of the battle field every few minutes. Thus, the need for a lot of growlers. Which will certainly make the war games even louder. The Navy eventually wants 16 squadrons, (16 attacks per day) with 9 growlers in each attack – a total of at least 130 Growler jets – with about 48 more assigned to specific duties.
With eight EA-18Gs per squadron, a carrier could have three jets in the air while preparing to launch three additional Growlers. The two remaining aircraft would likely be in maintenance.

This is why on July 26 2014, the Navy announced plans add more Growler squadrons.
36 more Growlers coming by Spring 2017. They will then be added to the Navy's attack on the spotted owls and good citizens of Forks Washington.

Hopefully, you now have a better idea on how harmful the Navy electromagnetic warfare program will be on the people and wildlife of the Olympic Peninsula. In the final section, we will look at what can be done to stop this madness.
