Notable Quotes from Jimmy Gonzalez

“Cell phones cause cancer.”

“It should become crystal clear that cell phones do cause cancer and that the American people are not being properly warned about cell phones.”

“… do whatever it takes to warn everybody about keeping cell phones away from their bodies.”

Issue-related Background Information

The Pembroke Pines, Florida, cell phone radiation resolution adopted in November 2012 expresses the city’s “urgent concerns arising from recent medical science reports which advise of the possible and adverse health effects delivered upon those who use cell phones, including, but not limited to, cancer, as a result of the [non-ionizing] radiation emitted by cell phones.”

The city’s resolution was adopted a month after Jimmy Gonzalez, an attorney and resident of the city, made a presentation to the City Commission about cell phone safety.  He also discussed his own battle with cell phone induced cancer.  After ten years of heavy cell phone use, Mr. Gonzalez was diagnosed with glioma, a serious and often fatal form of brain cancer on the side of his head where he used his phone.  Moreover, he had a tumor in his chest near the breast pocket where he kept his cell phone, and a tumor on the hand which he used to hold his phone during calls.

The City’s resolution contains the following five provisions:

“Expresses the City Commission’s concern for the amount of radiation that cell phones are emitting into users’ bodies in light of the scientific debate that cell phone radiation exposure causes cancer;

Strongly urges everyone to carefully read through their cell phone user manuals and user guides and follow all instructions therein as to how to reduce the amount of radiation that will be emitted into their bodies;

Encourages everyone to take all practical steps to keep themselves and their children well informed on the latest and ongoing scientific reports about the possible effects of cell phone radiation;

Resolves that additional scientific and medical research must be conducted by the public health community about the possible effects of cell phones’ radiation upon adults, teenagers, and community about the possible effects of cell phones’ radiation upon adults, teenagers, and children; and

Encourages that all local, state, and federal government agencies sworn to defend the public’s health & safety take all reasonable steps to vigilantly monitor and report publicly the information disclosed by ongoing scientific and medical research about the possible effects of cell phones’ radiation upon adults, teenagers, and children.”

From Obituary

“On Thursday, November 27, 2014, Jimmy Gonzalez, of Pembroke Pines, Florida, passed away … following a long battle against brain cancer.  He was 42 years old. …  Jimmy ran his own family law practice for many years, most recently in Coral Gables, until he was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme (brain cancer) on August 25, 2011.  Jimmy endured two craniotomies, two full rounds of radiation, and more than three years of chemotherapy, all under the care of doctors at both Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, Florida, and Duke Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina. ”

Over 8,000 Studies Zory Glaser, electronics technician, collected about the Bioeffects of Non-Ionizing Radiation.

About Dr. Zory R. Glaser
Dr. Glaser compiled his first RF/microwave bioeffects bibliography in 1971 (after earning his PhD degree), as a result of his studies following helping to establish the RF bioeffects laboratory at the Naval Medical Research Institute, when he was assigned by the U.S. Navy, as the military wanted to know if non-ionizing radiation exposure from RF/microwave sources could have adverse effects on military personnel. His superiors were impressed with his report (which included Soviet research; note that the Cold War was on-going at that time), and they asked him to update the bibliography regularly.

Dr. Glaser then funded, managed, and performed RF/microwave bioeffects research as part of his next assignments at the Navy’s Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (as Radiation Medicine Program Assistant), and then at the Naval Medical Research and Development Command (as Electromagnetic Radiation Program Manager), and as Officer-in-Charge and Senior Scientist (at the Non-Ionizing Radiation Bioeffects Laboratory, at the Naval Surface Weapons Center).

He then transferred to the U.S. Public Health Service, and began work as manager of the RF/Microwave Radiation Criteria Document, for NIOSH (the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health), where he continued his research on the human health effects of radio frequency and microwave radiation. He later transferred to the Bureau of Radiological Health, where he served as Executive Secretary of the Technical Electronic Product Radiation Safety Standards Committee (an advisory committee to the Commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, FDA).  A few years later he became Associate Director of the Division of Life Sciences, at the National Center for Medical Devices and Radiological Health, where he had responsibilities for (among other) evaluating/assessing the safety and effectiveness of applications for devices that used or generated electromagnetic energies to diagnose and/or treat illness.

In Dr. Glaser’s very early Navy career, he was trained and served as an electronics technician.  He is also a charter member of the international Bioelectromagnetics Society, and for many years provided the ‘microwave bioeffects bibliography’ update (referred to by many as the “centerfold”) for the Society’s monthly newsletter.) Dr. Glaser continued publishing his bibliographic supplements after he left the Navy, with supplements published by NIOSH, and by the Bureau of Radiological Health of the FDA.

The history of microwave radiation
Dr. Glaser has donated his entire RF/Microwave research archives to Professor Magda Havas of Trent University. This material is currently being digitized into electronic documents in the pdf format and will be made available free of charge to those that want to study the effects of electromagnetic fields on the human body.

Dept. of Interior Attacks FCC regarding Adverse Impact of Cell Tower Radiation on Wildlife

The Department of Interior charges that the FCC standards for cell phone radiation  are outmoded and no longer applicable as they do not adequately protect wildlife.

The Director of the Office of Environmental Policy and Compliance of the United States Department of the Interior sent a letterto the National Telecommunications and Information Administration in the Department of Commerce which addresses the Interior Department’s concern that cell tower radiation has had negative impacts on the health of migratory birds and other wildlife.

The Interior Department accused the Federal government of employing outdated radiation standards set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a federal agency with no expertise in health.  The standards are no longer applicable because they control only for overheating and do not protect organisms from the adverse effects of exposure to the low-intensity radiation produced by cell phones and cell towers:

“the electromagnetic radiation standards used by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) continue to be based on thermal heating, a criterion now nearly 30 years out of date and inapplicable today.”

The Department  criticized the Federal government’s proposed procedures for placement and operation of communication towers, and called for “independent, third-party peer-reviewed studies” in the U.S. to examine the effects of cell tower radiation on “migratory birds and other trust species.”

Following are excerpts from the letter, dated  Feb 7, 2014:

“The Department believes that some of the proposed procedures are not consistent with Executive Order 13186 Responsibilities of Federal Agencies to Protect Migratory Birds, which specifically requires federal agencies to develop and use principles, standards, and practices that will lessen the amount of unintentional take reasonably attributed to agency actions. The Department, through the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), finds that the proposals lack provisions necessary to conserve migratory bird resources, including eagles. The proposals also do not reflect current information regarding the effects of communication towers to birds. Our comments are intended to further clarify specific issues and address provisions in the proposals.

The Department recommends revisions to the proposed procedures to better reflect the impacts to resources under our jurisdiction from communication towers. The placement and operation of communication towers, including un-guyed, unlit, monopole or lattice-designed structures, impact protected migratory birds in two significant ways. The first is by injury, crippling loss, and death from collisions with towers and their supporting guy-wire infrastructure, where present. The second significant issue associated with communication towers involves impacts from non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation emitted by them (See Attachment).”

Enclosure A

“The second significant issue associated with communication towers involves impacts from nonionizing electromagnetic radiation emitted by these structures. Radiation studies at cellular communication towers were begun circa 2000 in Europe and continue today on wild nesting birds. Study results have documented nest and site abandonment, plumage deterioration, locomotion problems, reduced survivorship, and death (e.g., Balmori 2005, Balmori and Hallberg 2007, and Everaert and Bauwens 2007). Nesting migratory birds and their offspring have apparently been affected by the radiation from cellular phone towers in the 900 and 1800 MHz frequency ranges- 915 MHz is the standard cellular phone frequency used in the United States. However, the electromagnetic radiation standards used by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) continue to be based on thermal heating, a criterion now nearly 30 years out of date and inapplicable today. This is primarily due to the lower levels of radiation output from microwave-powered communication devices such as cellular telephones and other sources of point-to-point communications; levels typically lower than from microwave ovens. The problem, however, appears to focus on very low levels of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation. For example, in laboratory studies, T. Litovitz (personal communication) and DiCarlo et al. (2002) raised concerns about impacts of low-level, non-thermal electromagnetic radiation from the standard 915 MHz cell phone frequency on domestic chicken embryos- with some lethal results (Manville 2009, 2013a). Radiation at extremely low levels (0.0001 the level emitted by the average digital cellular telephone) caused heart attacks and the deaths of some chicken embryos subjected to hypoxic conditions in the laboratory while controls subjected to hypoxia were unaffected (DiCarlo et al. 2002). To date, no independent, third-party field studies have been conducted in North America on impacts of tower electromagnetic radiation on migratory birds. With the European field and U.S. laboratory evidence already available, independent, third-party peer-reviewed studies need to be conducted in the U.S. to begin examining the effects from radiation on migratory birds and other trust species.”

Radiation Impacts and Categorical Exclusions

“There is a growing level of anecdotal evidence linking effects of non-thermal, non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation from communication towers on nesting and roosting wild birds and other wildlife in the U.S. Independent, third-party studies have yet to be conducted in the U.S. or Canada, although a peer-reviewed research protocol developed for the U.S. Forest Service by the Service’s Division of Migratory Bird Management is available to study both collision and radiation impacts (Manville 2002). As previously mentioned, Balmori (2005) found strong negative correlations between levels of tower-emitted microwave radiation and bird breeding, nesting, and roosting in the vicinity of electromagnetic fields in Spain. He documented nest and site abandonment, plumage deterioration, locomotion problems, reduced survivorship, and death in House Sparrows, White Storks, Rock Doves, Magpies, Collared Doves, and other species. Though these species had historically been documented to roost and nest in these areas, Balmori (2005) did not observe these symptoms prior to construction and operation of the cellular phone towers. Balmori and Hallberg (2007) and Everaert and Bauwens (2007) found similar strong negative correlations among male House Sparrows. Under laboratory ‘conditions, DiCarlo et al. (2002) raised troubling concerns about impacts of low-level, non-thermal electromagnetic radiation from the standard 915 MHz cell phone frequency on domestic chicken embryos- with some lethal results (Manville 2009). Given the findings of the studies mentioned above, field studies should be conducted in North America to validate potential impacts of communication tower radiation both direct and indirect – to migratory birds and other trust wildlife species.”
