The Reflex Report (2004) Twelve
institutes in seven countries have found genotoxic effects and modified
expressions on numerous genes and proteins after radio frequency and extremely
low frequency EMF exposure at low levels, below current international safety
guidance, to living cells in-vitro. These results confirm the likelihood of
long-term genetic damage in the blood and brains of users of mobile phones and
other sources of electromagnetic fields. The idea behind the REFLEX study was to
attempt replicate damage already reported to see if the effects were real and
whether, or not, more money should be spent of research into the possible
adverse health effects of EMF exposure. They concluded
that in-vitro damage is real and that it is important to carry out much more
research, especially monitoring the long-term health of people.

useful for the recovering person as well as anybody. It comes to us from
the Elders at the Optina Monastery.

where one prayers often on a daily basis to surrender their will and their life
to the care of God.
