Many baseball players and Umpires had brain tumours.  Did they all use cell phones? or was it the Radar Guns measuring the speed of the ball?

Fullerton Informer states : ” All professional Baseball players have it rough. There is no doubt about it. I have known at least one personally and all the way from his farm team days to the big time under the bright lights, it has been an incredibly trying time both physically and emotionally. Long hours away from home and family are just one of the hallmarks of baseball’s  commitments. All baseball players use cellphones to fill the long hours hours away from home. So why are the  GBM’s are on the rise in just the pitchers, and catchers . It is no coincidence that this is the area of the brain closest to which the cell phone is held. Baseball players (even retired) probably use their cell phones often as they are on the road often. So why don’t we see the left or right fielders, coaches, or first basemen inordinately coming down with brain tumors on a similar basis?

Yankees Phillies Spring Baseball

A lot goes on behind the plate as that is where all the action is. There are a lot of eyes and ears 30 feet back in the stands. What most people don’t realize is that part of the action behind the plate and elsewhere involves radar. The radar is aimed at the pitcher from behind home plate and at times, in center field aimed at the catchers to get the velocities off of the bat. It is used on almost every ball that is pitched and caught, whether it be at practice, spring training or during regular season, a radar gun is in operation aimed directly at the pitcher. The catcher is also smack dab in the middle of the radar beam. Gary Carter was no exception. He was in the radar gun’s line of fire almost all of the time. For that matter, so are most catchers, pitchers and even umpires. So why then, do not all pitchers, catchers and umpires get brain tumors?

Let’s talk about radar. Radar employs microwave technology to determine the velocity of the ball as it travels to home plate from the pitcher’s mound. It emits a precisely focused, directional beam of electromagnetic radiation that travels right through the catcher, umpire and to the pitcher. Just how many radar guns were in use at each respective game is unclear to me at this point but it is being investigated.

In the 1960’s, The X band frequency was used extensively which covered the 8-12 GHz range. In the early 1970’s this was changed to the K band at 18-26 GHZ. Eventually the frequencies on radar guns were shifted to Ka bands, thus creating a more powerful, and accurate reading in the 26-40 GHz range. I can still remember listening to Don Drysdale  broadcasting on KMPC on my transistor radio in the 1970’s talking about them clocking Nolan Ryan’s 100 mph fast balls. Radar has been around on the ball field for a long time.

Today, the readily available inexpensive models current operate on a frequency similar to the microwave oven in your home, which is around 2.4 GHz. This is also the same frequency that your WiFi and WiFi enabled wireless devices, including some cordless and cellular phones operate on as well. It is well established that microwaves have been shown to make the blood brain barrier permeable to toxins and metals.

I believe this unique combination of cause and effect is why Gary and these individuals fell victim to this tragedy and many others, although exposed to the toxins, were not exposed to the radar failed to develop tumors. Those exposed to the radar that were not exposed to the toxins failed to develop tumors as well. I believe that both are required for the brain tumors to form and this explains what we are observing.

Below is an excerpt from Joel M. Moskowitz, Ph.D. Director, Center for Family and Community Health School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley  that confirms what low intensity microwaves do to the blood brain barrier:

“Since exposure to low intensity microwave radiation can open the blood-brain barrier, toxic chemical exposure may be more harmful to anyone who is exposed to wireless radiation. For example, see]”

“The S PRO II radar transmits at a frequency of 34.7 GHz (34,700,000,000 Hz) using a Ka-Band Transmitter. The receiver is designed to read the Doppler frequency (the change in frequency) which is much lower and lies between 100 Hz and 83,000 Hz. There are very few devices other than another radar gun that could cause interference in a radar gun’s transmission frequency range. However, there are a number of devices that could interfere with a radar gun in the receiver’s frequency range.”

Cops’ radar guns emit 36 GHz frequency radiation that causes testicular cancer – who knew?

Monday, January 09, 2017  by: 

(Natural News) Six police officers found out the hard way that hand-held radar guns, kept in their lap while not pointing them at cars, cause testicular cancer over time. A study revealed that six incident cases of testicular cancer developed between 1979 and 1991for officers who all routinely held their radar devices in close proximity to their testes–thus proving their only “shared risk” factor for health hazards warranting the condition. One Norfolk, Virginia traffic cop said he worked with radar for 12 years, but since he quit using the radar gun, his cancer is in remission.

Irradiation of localized tissues increases risk for leukemia and brain or testicular cancer

Traffic radar guns emit microwave radiation at frequencies between 10.5 GHz and 36 GHz, with enough intensity to enhance tumor growth by several different means. The radiation is capable of disrupting immune function and enhancing the absorption of carcinogenic substances into cells, so although the radar gun itself may not be directly causing cancer, the microwave radiation is indirectly modifying gene expression and increasing cell proliferation rates, according to scientific research, thus leading to increased risk of cancer. Police officers who rest their active radar guns against their chest, next to their head, or in their lap are irradiating localized tissues.

“Radar guns can affect the health if they are not used properly,” says Johnny Mercer, a motorcycle cop who taught police radar for years, and who says that keeping the gun next to the body for long periods of time increases the risk of cancer, like smokers who get lung cancer after years of tugging back on cigarettes. Mercer also compared the radar gun’s radiation emissions to that of microwave ovens, which have been revealed to adversely affect human blood, heart rate, and heart rate variations when people stand within 3 feet of a running “nuker.”

Hampton, Virginia police prefer to set their radar guns in a bracket attached to the dashboard and are no longer allowed to keep the gun across their lap due to its “devastating effects on health, according to the police Chief there. The Virginia State Police troopers mount their guns outside the car, and they too have been instructed by the Norfolk and Virginia Beach police officials to limit their contact with radiation-emitting radar guns.

National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health warns of radar gun dangers

Officials at the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health are advising police departments to have regular check ups of their radar guns for radiation leakage, and they have advised the cops to mount the units on the outside of patrol cars whenever they can. The guns have been declared unsafe by one radar manufacturing company based out of Kansas called Kustom Signals, Inc.

Of course, the US government and the military downplayed the dangers of the radar guns saying that there was “no problem,” and academic groups said that research was “incomplete” but that the police should “use caution.” That doesn’t change the fact that several police officers are being injured and some are dying who kept the guns in their laps for years. In fact, out of 340 officers, the six cases of testicular cancer all came from officers who said they kept the guns near their family jewels.

For all those concerned now about microwave ovens, in comparison to radar guns, typical kitchen “nukers” produce an average of 2.4 GHz, less than 1/12th that of some radar guns, yet are still capable of causing immediate and drastic changes to the human heart from just three feet away, and with the door closed. According to Dr. Magda Havas of Trent University, people exposed to radiation for just three minutes at 2.4-GHz can experience severe reactions in heart rate changes and altered heart rate variations, indicating an alarm response to stress, also called electrohypersensitivity (EHS) or rapid aging syndrome. This has been studied for decades, as opposed to the police radar guns that are just beginning to “sound the alarms” about cancer (pardon the pun).

Maybe the police need to also get their doctors to check them for heart palpitations, clumping of red blood cells and fluctuations of the parasympathetic nervous system – typical symptoms of radiation exposure from microwave ovens, and not just the radar guns.




As Approved by the IEEE United States Activities Board
May 1992


We recognize public concern about the safety of exposure to electromagnetic fields. Recent allegations in the media link cancer with exposure to police radars, one of the lowest power microwave systems in our modern society — typically between 10 and 100 milliwatts.

Guidelines for safe limits of exposure to microwaves have been published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE C95.1, 1991) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI C95.1, 1982). These guidelines were developed to protect
human beings from harmful exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields. Our Committee on Man and Radiation (COMAR)
has stated that prolonged exposure at or below the levels recommended in ANSI C95.1-1982 is not hazardous to human health
based on present knowledge (IEEE-USA COMAR, 1990).

Measurements and analysis of microwave exposures near properly operating police radar units have shown that even maximal exposure
levels are well below these recommended safety limits. In addition, human exposures near police radar are substantially below the limits set by other national and international standards. Therefore, it can be concluded that microwave exposures near police
radar are safe by existing standards and that there is no scientific basis for the alleged link of police radar with cancer.

This statement was developed by the Committee of Man and Radiation
of the United States Activities Board of The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE), and represents the considered judgment of a group of U.S. IEEE members with expertise in the subject field. The IEEE United States Activities Board promotes the career and technology policy interests of the 250,000 electrical, electronics, and computer engineers who are U.S. members of the IEEE.


Police radar was first introduced in the late 1940s as an offshoot of World War II radar technology. From time to time, there has been controversy over the accuracy of police radar in speed limit enforcement. Nevertheless, police radar has evolved into an accepted means of traffic control, with more than 75,000 radar units in use in the United States.

The microwave properties of speed radars have been known for years.  In 1981, tests on 22 radar units showed that power densities were
less than 3 mW/cm2 at the aperture and that exposure decreased with separation from the radiating horn (Baird, 1981). Police radar
operates at X and K-band frequencies (i.e., 10-35 GHz), with a continuous-wave signal (no modulation), and with output power in the range of 10 to 100 milliwatts. The vast majority of police radars operate between 10-25 milliwatts, although a small number of 100 milliwatt devices are still in service. By comparison, the power output of a child’s walkie- talkie is 35 milliwatts, and
cellular hand-held radio-telephones operate at power levels of hundreds of milliwatts. In today’s society, many products utilize
similar technology and similar frequencies: alarm systems, automatic door openers, motion detectors, and various personal
communications networks and inter-computer network systems.  Thousands of products produce environmental radio-frequency fields at similar or higher intensities and in a broad range of  frequencies (e.g., microwave ovens, mobile radios, electronic news gathering systems, broadcasting, amateur radio, and other devices).

Police radar is a low-power system when compared against today’s inventory of existing radio-frequency systems. The total power,  even if concentrated at a point as in a coaxial connector, is insufficient to produce pain or skin burn (Osepchuk, 1983).  Microwaves at police radar frequencies are absorbed almost wholly in the skin, and the power densities near a police radar are well below the threshold for thermal sensation at X-band (Handler, 1968).

Biological research with animals at these frequencies has shown biological effects only at much higher powers (Rosenthal, et al, 1976 and Hagan, et al, 1976). At least 1 watt of power is necessary to produce a cataract in irradiated rabbits at X-band.  At 35 GHz, no cataracts result for less than 600 milliwatt contact application to the rabbit eye. Minimal corneal damage under contact conditions occurs only for at least 50 milliwatts delivered continuously for 0.5 hours to a small area in the eye.

Concerns about health effects (e.g., alleged cataracts) from police radar apparently first surfaced in 1987 in a letter distributed by
Silicron Technologies (Tunnell, 1987). This claim received no scientific support and in time disappeared. In 1990, a police
officer from Ohio, Gary Poynter, published a report (Poynter, 1990)  that alleged a link between police radar exposure and cancer. As
a prime example of biological effects of microwave energy at X-band, Poynter selected the series of experiments on Tenebrio
molitor reviewed by Heynick and Polson (1983). They, however, did not interpret these experiments as contradictions to ANSI C95.1-
1982. Furthermore, some of the early work on Tenebrious molitor suggested effects of low power levels, which later were found not to exist (Olsen, 1981). The allegations of Poynter have been expanded in a series of media events — particularly a series of
articles in Law Enforcement News (1990-1991).

Recently, Fisher (1991) measured police radar units and confirmed the results of Baird (1981). Fisher concluded that maximum
exposure during normal use of a hand-held radar device is less than 0.05 mW/cm2. The newer radars tend to be at lower power than older
ones included in the 1981 tests. As a low power device, police radar is exempt from the requirement of providing evidence of
compliance with ANSI C95.1-1982. This exemption was recently confirmed to our Committee on Man and Radiation by the Federal
Communications Commission (Cleveland, 1991). Police radar has been
examined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and no action
by the FDA relative to its responsibilities under the Electronic Product Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act of 1968 was deemed warranted (Anderson, 1991).


As an extra precaution to “ensure that no violations of existing standards can occur,” the FDA recently
suggested that the radar antenna be kept at least six inches from the body while transmitting. The FDA also stated that “emissions from police radar units contain no ELF modulation and have not been associated with the present ELF-cancer controversy.”

There is no scientific basis for worry that exposure to police radar may cause or promote cancer. Underlying our position is its
reliance on the validity of existing science-based safety standards. Exposure to police radar satisfies the limits of not only IEEE and ANSI standards but also other standards both in the U.S. (NCRP, 1986) and elsewhere in the world (IRPA, 1988). We believe that continuing research on biological effects is necessary across the whole electromagnetic spectrum, in order to ensure an
up-to-date refinement and improvement of existing safety standards.
