Barrie Trower

First degree in Physics - University of Exeter.

Second degree (research) with honours - Council for National Academics Awards.

Teaching diploma in Human Physiology.

Trained at the Government's microwave warfare establishment for the Royal Navy.

Worked with the R.N. underwater bomb-disposal unit, which involved the training in microwave warfare.

Served in conflicts in Borneo, Aden and the British West Indies.

Was a teacher at the Country's top secure unit, which housed spies - and a part of his brief was to obtain information on matters relating to his knowledge, i.e. microwaves.

He is the author of the TETRA Report for the Police Federation of England & Wales.

Extracts from US Defence Intelligence Agency Documents from 1972-1983

Note: Comments in bold italics are mine.

1.       Ref:  DST-1810S-076-76 March 1976.  "If the more advanced nations of the West are strict in the enforcement of stringent exposure standards, there could be unfavourable effects on industrial output and military functions".

2.       Ref: DST-1810-074-76 March 1976 "Personnel exposed to microwave radiation below thermal levels experience more neurological, cardiovascular, and haemodynamic disturbances than do their unexposed counterparts.  Some of the ....effects attributed to exposure include bradycardia, hypotension, and changes in EKG indices." "Subjects exposed to microwave exhibited a variety of neurasthenic disorders against a background of angiodystonia (abnormal changes in tonicity of blood vessels).  The most common subjective complaints were headache, fatigue, perspiring, dizziness, menstrual disorders, irritability, agitation, tension, drowsiness, sleeplessness, depression, anxiety, forgetfulness, and a lack of concentration".  The very things that some mobile phone users report (Mild et al 1998)

3.       Ref: ST-CS-01-169-72 July 1972.  "Low frequency electromagnetic fields have been found.......to generate sonic and ultrasonic oscillations in living organisms.  These oscillations produce elastic deformations in the organism.  If the frequency of the outside field corresponds to the oscillation frequency of the cells, the latter deteriorate...." "Since almost all of the Soviet data on electromagnetic radiation (below visible) applies to physiological effects". "The UCLA Brain Information Service in Los Angeles....has compiled an extensive bibliographic list on the biological effects of electromagnetic fields (below visible frequencies) especially on the central nervous system".  Numerous studies have since confirmed this including Wever (1974), Konig (1974), Beale et al. (1997), Lilienfeld et al. (1978), Robinette et al. (1980).

4.       Ref: DST-1810S-074-76 March 1976  "Soviet research has produced guidelines which were used to establish a value of 10 uW/cm2 per working day UK standard 110 uW/cm2...Should subsequent research result in adoption of the Soviet standard... industries....could be required to make costly modifications to protect workers.  Recognition of the standard could also limit the application of new electronic technology by making the commercial exploitation of some products unattractive because of increased costs imposed by the need for additional safeguards."  "Another possibility is the alteration of the permeability of the blood-brain barrier.  This could allow neurotoxins in the blood to cross.  As a result, an individual could develop severe neuropathological symptoms and either die or become seriously impaired neurologically"  Proven by Salford et al. (1993)(1994)(1999). Parkinsons, Alzheimers, and vCJD are such possibilities.

5.       Ref:  ST-CS-01-169-72 July 1972 "Low frequency emfs have been found to generate oscillations in living organisms. If the frequency of the outside field corresponds to the oscillation frequency of the cells, the latter deteriorate as a result of the mechanical resonance". The human brain & heart function at frequencies within the spectra of cellphones, computers, etc.

6.       Ref: DST-1810S-074-76 March 1976 "Personnel exposed to microwave radiation below thermal levels experience more neurological, cardiovascular and hemodynamic disturbances than do their unexposed counterparts".

Directives for Human Experimentation  NUREMBERG CODE

1. The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.
This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give  consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of  choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the
subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonable to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment.

The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.

2. The experiment should be such as to yield fruitful results for the good of society, unprocurable by other methods or means of study, and not random and unnecessary in nature.

3. The experiment should be so designed and based on the results of animal experimentation and a knowledge of the natural history of the disease or other problem under study that the anticipated results will justify the performance of the experiment.

4. The experiment should be so conducted as to avoid all unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injury.

5. No experiment should be conducted where there is an a priori reason to believe that death or disabling injury will occur; except, perhaps, in those experiments where the experimental physicians also serve as subjects.

6. The degree of risk to be taken should never exceed that determined by the humanitarian importance of the problem to be solved by the experiment.

7. Proper preparations should be made and adequate facilities provided to protect the experimental subject against even remote possibilities of injury, disability, or death.

8. The experiment should be conducted only by scientifically qualified persons. The highest degree of skill and care should be required through all stages of the experiment of those who conduct or engage in the experiment.

9. During the course of the experiment the human subject should be at liberty to bring the experiment to an end if he has reached the physical or mental state where continuation of the experiment seems to him to be impossible.

10. During the course of the experiment the scientist in charge must be prepared to terminate the experiment at any stage, if he has probable cause to believe, in the exercise of the good faith, superior skill and careful judgment required of him that a continuation of the experiment is likely to result in injury, disability, or death to the experimental subject.
