Is a 300% increase in Crohn’s disease the result of our escalating exposure to wireless technologies?

You may have seen recent reports of a 300% increase in Crohn’s disease, such as this article in the Independent:
www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/health-news/crohns-disease-hospital-admissions-surge-300-because-of-junk-food-and-antibiotics-9548524.html .

Possible explanations for the rising trend include the use of antibiotics and the availability of junk food; but corresponding evidence for these contentions are thin and do not correlate well to the time-scale of ten years.

What fits better, in fact, is our increased exposure to RF/microwaves emissions, such as those from mobile phones and WiFi, which have increased dramatically over the last ten years. The likely mechanisms for harm are electromagnetically-induced inflammation, as experts such as Professor Olle Johnasson of Sweden’s Karolinska Institute have pointed out on many occasions.

Electromagnetic frequencies in the RF/MW wavelength also increase the permeability of the blood/gut barrier (similar to the blood brain barrier which is also opened by weak electromagnetic fields) which allow foreign materials from the gut and partially-digested food to enter the bloodstream which can trigger the generation of antibodies and an autoimmune response.

As an example of this, according to Arrieta et al.(2006) Gut 55 1512-1520, alterations in the permeability of the gut barrier have been linked to several autoimmune diseases, including Crohns disease, celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, irritable bowel syndrome and type-1 diabetes.

It’s interesting that no one in the media seems to want to mention our increasingly dangerous, electromagnetic environment as being a likely cause of so much ill health. These are some of many reasons for needing to remove WiFi and Smart Meters from schools – and everywhere else for that matter.
