Zorach (Zory) Glaser Ph.D., LT, MSC, USNR, is one of the most important scientists to study the impact of wireless technology on human health. His career as a government research scientist spans decades working for the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Public Health Service, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Bureau of Radiological Health.
Glaser’s extensive archive of nearly 4,000 documents, now available to the public, provides clear evidence that the harmful effects of wireless were known long before cell phones and wireless technology were commercialized in the early 1980s.
The archive materials reveal that the U.S. government, particularly the military, knew for decades of the harm wireless technology can cause to human health. During World War II, the U.S. military started to use radar, and the use of radio telecommunications systems was growing.
Soldiers working with these systems, which use radio and microwave frequencies — the same frequencies used for wireless devices such as cell phones and Wi-Fi — began to complain of adverse health effects from exposure to the radiation emitted by these systems.
At the time, the illness experienced by these soldiers was referred to as “Radiation Sickness /Microwave Sickness.”
Glaser was assigned by the U.S. Navy’s Naval Medical Research Center to investigate. He spent about a decade collecting every study conducted within and outside the U.S. showing that the radiation emitted from radio frequencies (RFs) and microwave frequencies may cause adverse health effects.
Dr. Glaser’s report, “Bibliography of Reported Biological Phenomena (“Effects”) and Clinical Manifestations Attributed to Microwave and Radio-Frequency Radiation,” was published in 1971. The report references more than 2,300 studies showing multiple adverse biological responses to radio- and microwave-frequency radiation.
Pages 5-12 of the report’s bibliography list these adverse effects, including damage to vital organs and other tissues and the central nervous system, physiological and psychological effects, blood and vascular disorders, metabolic and gastrointestinal disorders, and endocrine and histological changes.
Glaser’s 1976 updated report includes 3,700 studies which confirm the soldiers’ complaints…
The “Microwave Sickness” symptoms suffered then by the military personnel are now widely seen among growing numbers of people in the general population who are exposed to this electro-smog pollution from wireless devices.
