Clear evidence of cell-phone RF radiation cancer risk

Electromagnetic Radiation Safety, August 28, 2018

In a new paper, “Clear evidence of cell-phone RF radiation cancer risk” published in the journal IEEE Microwave Magazine, Dr. James C. Lin states that the results of the National Toxicology Program (NTP) cell phone radiation study suggest that current radio frequency (RF) exposure guidelines are inadequate to protect human health (1). Furthermore, the paper recommends that the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) re-assess the research and consider upgrading the classification of RF radiation from "possibly carcinogenic to humans" (Group 2B) to probably carcinogenic (i.e., Group 2A).

Although Dr. Lin raises some criticisms of the NTP study in this and an earlier paper (1, 2), he recognizes the importance of this research to the field and the implications of the study findings for public health (2).

He praised the FDA and the NTP for the initiation and conduct of the study and emphasized the need for the “U.S. government to step in and conduct such research programs and not leave the matter entirely to the cell-phone industry” due to his concern that “The wireless industry has had nearly free reign to develop and distribute cellular mobile phones and related RF devices as they see fit.”

Dr. Lin was one of fourteen experts convened by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences to review the National Toxicology Program’s cell phone radiation study in March of this year. He is a professor of electrical engineering, bioengineering, physiology, and biophysics at the University of Illinois, Chicago. His publications include ten books, hundreds of papers and book chapters, and he has made hundreds of presentations at professional conferences. He has served on the editorial board of fifteen professional journals and has received numerous awards and honors throughout his distinguished career.

Special sale on Saharasia continues through March

Yesterday Putin basically threatened the Western democracies with a new class of nuclear missiles. China wages open economic warfare since decades, getting fully happy cooperation from American politicians and corporations. Threatening neighbors, supporting the nuclear ambitions of North Korea, now grabbing new territory by invasion, reverting to Maoism. New "Pearl Harbors" are possible, as are new "Hitler-Stalin Pacts", which already exists in the global Left-Islamic Alliance. The old Cold Warriors were correct, the world is not a safe or gentle place. Freedom and Liberty are take a beating world-wide.

Human child-treatment and sexuality determine Character Structure, which is a better predictor of behavior than ideology, though the latter flows from the former. The old patterns of global geography also remain in play, determining invasion routes and patterns of chronic repeating totalitarianism versus relative freedom. Santayana’s dictum still holds: "Those who forget the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them."

Saharasia also still holds:
Saharasia: Origins of War, Social Violence, Sex-Repression, Child Abuse

Saharasia on Special Sale

For yourself or friends and family, after all the Christmas goodies are gone, give the Gift of Knowledge.

Saharasia proves in exacting detail how the human disaster of Emotional Armoring began, 6000+ years ago, and how over the long haul, it can be reversed. Based upon Wilhelm Reich’s discoveries, scientifically proving the global validity of his theory of human behavior, that social violence and war are fundamentally rooted in child abuse and sexual repression. Saharasia also documents the very largest global climate change to have occurred since the end of the Pleistocene Ice Age, the great drying-up event which created the massive Saharasian Desert Belt. This major climate-shift created havoc within emerging human societies, converting their garden-like peaceful existence into hyperarid desert conditions of social violence and war. Passed on through generations of violence-created and violence-creating social institutions, the consequences of that ancient disaster can still be identified in contemporary human culture and geography.

Periodically I offer my large book Saharasia for a low price for both USA and international destinations, to clear out space in our storage room. We are now offering it for $12.95 per copy, plus a small shipping charge for anywhere in the USA (+$3.24). That is less than half the usual price of $34 as sold at our website, or $39 as sold on Amazon even if you qualify for their free-shipping option.

For international destinations shipping charges will have to be quoted and paid separately, after your order is placed, as our shopping cart system cannot calculate that. International shipping should be something around $12 or higher, which still beats the usual Amazon price. We use the PayPal cart system, which accepts any credit card, whether you are a PayPal member or not.

This low price is available only if you purchase from our on-line book and instrument store, Natural Energy Works
Look on the left-side column, it will be listed just below the Reich books.

Or you can go to this specific weblink to get it directly:

We also offer this book in larger quantities at the same price, with a special shipping quote, so booksellers or those wishing to give the gift of knowledge can use this as an opportunity to stock up.

New Film: “Love, Work and Knowledge: The Life and Trials of Wilhelm Reich”

January 15, 2018

New Film: "Love, Work and Knowledge: The Life and Trials of Wilhelm Reich"

The new film on Wilhelm Reich, "Love, Work and Knowledge: The Life and Trials of Wilhelm Reich", directed by Kevin Hinchey, was given a premier showing in New York City yesterday evening. By all accounts it is an excellent film, the first to stay true to Reich, and to correct the numerous errors, falsehoods and slanders which litter prior films about the man. The event was reserved for those who had donated time and money to the development of the film. I wasn’t able to personally attend, but already am getting very positive reviews from friends who did. Over the next months it will be shown in other cities, theaters and universities, film festivals and so forth, with an eventual DVD / streaming version. Info will be posted here as it comes available.

You can also get more information, including a film trailer, from the film’s official website:

At some point in the hopefully near future, I’ll get to see it for myself, and write up a film review.
Congratulations to Kevin Hinchey, for what surely has been several long years of hard work.

Eltern kleiner Kinder sehen sich mit vielfältigen Fragen der Erziehung konfrontiert. Einerseits brauchen Kinder Grenzen, heißt es, andererseits sollen sie glücklich und frei aufwachsen. Und natürlich sollen sie wenig bis gar nicht schreien, möglichst problemlos im eigenen Bettchen schlafen und zur Förderung ihrer sozialen und kognitiven Entwicklung freudig in die frühkindliche Fremdbetreuung gehen. Was Kinder jedoch eigentlich brauchen, ist wenig bis gar nicht systematisch untersucht. Zu sehr ist Erziehung von Ideologie geprägt und ein Kind soll sich der jeweils herrschende Erziehungsideologie anpassen.

Wilhelm Reichs Forschungsprojekt, Kinder möglichst unbeeinflusst von geltenden Erziehungsprinzipien heranwachsen zu lassen, um ihre natürlichen Bedürfnisse zu studieren, ist bis heute in der Säuglingsforschung einzigartig. Durch die kritische Auseinandersetzung mit seinen psychologischen und biologischen Arbeiten erlangte Reich umfangreiche Erkenntnisse über Kinder, und sein Grundinteresse an der Verhütung von Krankheiten führte ihn weiter und weiter zurück, bis er sich schließlich auch mit Neugeborenen befasste.

In den Texten von Kinder der Zukunft geht Reich der Frage nach, wie Neurosen und Pathologien entstehen und wie sie aus bioenergetischer Sicht erfasst, spezifiziert und behandelt werden können. Dabei zeigt sich, dass besonders die kindliche Genitalität eine vergessene Einflussgröße für die bioenergetische Gesundheit des Kindes darstellt.ävention-Pathologien-Psychoanalyse/dp/3837927253

A Personal Appeal from James DeMeo, PhD

Dear Friends and Supporters of my research,

Recently I circulated an email with a reference link, detailing a new discovery in orgone biophysics, as made at my laboratory in rural Oregon. A physical link was identified and proven, not merely theorized, in how the orgone energy accumulator can induce distilled water into a higher state of excitation and organization. And this excited state of water also yields a subtle blue-colored fluorescence, exactly as Reich spoke about with his term orgonotic lumination. This induced property was identified by spectrographic methods, following a line of investigation I’ve been following since 2009. Orgone charged water, I can say with confidence, firstly absorbs far ultra-violet or UV radiation in a strong manner, and then fluoresces or luminates in the near-UV and blue frequencies. Furthermore, and here is where it becomes exciting, a similar spectrographic “signature” was discovered by biologists in water-solutions of nucleic acids and DNA. The life-energy, the orgone, is thereby revealed to have profound similarities to the very “molecules of life”. A similar spectrographic signature was also uncovered at OBRL in vigorous rains and snow events, but not in weak drizzles. And this spectrographic property is also something that other scientists have documented in highly-structured water as produced from a variety of laboratory experiments.

You can review my PowerPoint slide set on these findings as recently presented to the 12th International Conference on the Physics, Chemistry and Biology of Water, where I’ve been an invited speaker several times.
Here’s a YouTube video of the same lecture, with audio included:

This new work helps to elevates Reich’s stature as the scientific pioneer that he was, but it is not the first time my work has verified Reich’s research findings, at a high level of scientific inquiry.

A Brief History of My Work

Some of you will know, I was the first university student to earn a PhD degree from a mainstream university where Reich’s research was openly investigated. That was at the University of Kansas, and a 2-year program investigating Reich’s cloudbuster was supported while there, providing strong evidence that the device actually worked.

I undertook another major project at KU, to earn the PhD degree, a multi-year cross-cultural and geographical investigation of Reich’s sex-economic theory, with multiple new findings in support of his works. An early period of peaceful human existence under wet and lush, garden-like conditions was uncovered in that study, along with identification of a generally ignored but major climate-change at the c.4000-3500 BC time period. It was the largest climate change to occur since the end of the Pleistocene Ice Age, turning the large territory of Saharasia (North Africa, Middle East, Central Asia) from a well-watered grassland-forest into bone-dry and hyperarid desert. Maps of various cultural indicators of infant-trauma, sex-repression, social violence and organized warfare were produced, affirming one of Reich’s most central findings on their correlations, and proving out their causal nature by geographical mapping methods. That work integrated the evidence from several major disciplines – archaeology, history, ethnography, climatology and geography – in a location-specific timeline that was unique to my study. That body of work was the very largest global cross-cultural study of human sexuality and family life, and related correlates to social violence and war, that had ever been undertaken. That is still the case today. The findings were explosive, even more controversial than the cloudbuster study, and later were published as summary articles in several mainstream academic journals, and in a major book: Saharasia: The 4000-3500 BC Origins of Child Abuse, Sex-Repression, Warfare and Social Violence, In the Deserts of the Old World.

Many will know, I survived as a young professor teaching at major universities for about ten years, even as the well-funded and organized “skeptic groups” put me in their cross-hairs, for violent slander attacks just as bad as what Reich experienced, except I was never “investigated” by the FDA nor dragged into courtrooms for my unorthodox research findings. I also had been studying other 20th-Century scientific pioneers whose work was suggestive of a cosmic energy similar to Reich’s orgone, such as Harold Burr, Giorgio Piccardi, Frank Brown, Dayton Miller and others, writing various articles that argued for the similarities (and differences) between them.

In 1989, with immense “skeptic-club” hate-attacks, slanders and dirty-tricks, plus a death threat, hounding my work and personal existence, I went independent and moved to California, struggling for another four years to build up my own private institute, the non-profit Orgone Biophysical Research Lab. An affordable property was located in the old-growth forested Greensprings region of rural Southwest Oregon, with similar strong and sweet orgonotic qualities as Reich found at his Orgonon, in the forests of rural Maine.

I wrote the popular Orgone Accumulator Handbook, now into its 3rd edition, educating a new generation of young people to the facts of Reich’s basic life-energy discovery, with plans on building simple orgone accumulators and blankets, and guidance on their usage. A new journal was started, Pulse of the Planet, by which to report on my new findings, given the Academic blacklisting and black-out which descended upon my work.

My research with the Reich cloudbuster had continued since the years at KU, and with help from volunteers, major droughts were ended in Illinois, the Southeast USA, the Midwest and in California. However, no support was ever found for my research on this subject until after going independent. With a kind donation from Louis Hochberg, for whom the Hochberg Awards program was later set up, a major systematic study of the cloudbuster on pre-determined dates was undertaken in the American Southwestern deserts. That study showed a distinct rainfall-doubling effect over a broad territory, encompassing Southeast California, Southern Nevada and all of Arizona – once again proving the cloudbuster’s influence was exceptional, beyond anything possible through the usual cloudseeding methods. I spoke about that project to major scientific groups, such as the Association of American Geographers, and Association for Arid Lands Studies. While my lectures on Saharasian climate changes and the cloudbuster were routinely published and presented in scientific forums, the hostility was palpable, given how so much of conventional scientific theory was demolished by Reich’s and my findings. “Reich was a quack”, etc., was the usual sour reaction, against which I stood firm to defend both his and my own experimental record.

With spreading word about the results of my experimental work, and continued support from volunteers and donors, I was invited by the governments of Israel to end a major drought there. The next year, another invitation came from the government of Namibia, stimulated by my friends in Germany with connections to that nation, also suffering from an extended serious drought. In both cases, of Israel and Namibia, application of Reich’s methods resulted in a quick end — within about 10 days of work – to serious, multi-year droughts. Shortly thereafter, I was asked to lead a team into the Horn of Africa, into Eritrea specifically, to apply Reich’s methods to a serious 30-year drought situation, which had led to a situation of agricultural desperation, mitigated only by international food aid. Our team applied the Reich methods and within a week, almost as a miracle, the skies began to fill with heavy clouds and downpours of rain followed. A 30-year drought was ended. The Eritrean government then invited me to return, on agreement, for a 5-year project and evaluation, after which a public presentation to the scientific community would be made on the results.

From 1994 through 1999, that project was undertaken, eventually spreading excellent rains over the entire region. Flows down the Nile River were increased such that Lake Nasser behind the Aswan High Dam in Egypt filled for the first time since its construction in the mid-1960s. Lake Nasser eventually was filled to over-flowing, with excess waters shunted out its spillways into the open Sahara Desert, where five gigantic new lakes – the Toshka Lakes – swelled so large one could not see across them to the other side. While a regrettable war situation developed shortly thereafter between Eritrea and Ethiopia, forcing an end to our project, the results were overwhelmingly spectacular, and constituted a major proof of Reich’s methods and genius. Today, unfortunately, the Toshka Lakes are nearly dried up, as the wonderful increase in rains over the period of our work in Eritrea ended two years after the last operations ended. The region has gone back to drought and war-chaos. But you can still see remnants of the Toshka Lakes on Google Earth, or in historical materials.

Reports on all these projects were published and I gave lectures on them at different scientific-scholarly societies, with data analysis of their results to prove out the exact dates when the atmospheric changes and onset of rains occurred. The social reactions to all these projects, sadly, was one of disbelief, silent back-turning and walking away, or outright hostility bordering on violent emotional explosions. With few exceptions, I retired from the cloudbusting work, save for a failed fundraising effort to end the severe California/Southwest droughts, which seem to endlessly recur.

Throughout this period of exhausting international work, in some of the world’s most stagnated droughty and desert regions, efforts continued towards replication of Reich’s laboratory findings on the orgone accumulator and the orgone energy itself. In this direction, my efforts at the new OBRL facility in Oregon allowed for improvements not previously possible in equipment and facilities. I produced new experimental proofs, bullet-proof from classically-known objections, for Reich’s findings on the following:

* A new water evaporation-suppression and humidity effect was documented in the orgone accumulator that was not present in control experiments.

* A replication of Reich’s basic bion experiments, with color microphotographs that were later shown to an International Symposium on Pleomorphism, with published paper and YouTube video.

* The slight warming, thermal anomaly in the orgone accumulator, Reich’s To-T experiment which was the center subject of his contact with Einstein, was approached in a new experimental protocol, proving it was a real effect and no artifact. The To-T effect always stood as a challenge to the 2nd Law of thermodynamics, and my work proved it out in ways more robust and bullet-proof to the usual criticisms than the prior good studies, revealing its central relationship to orgonotic lumination produced by the Sun, but not to daily temperature variation.

* Reproductions of the electroscopical discharge anomaly, wherein a static electroscope is slowed in its discharge rate inside an orgone accumulator with open door, by comparison to a cardboard box with open door. The electrical density inside the accumulator is stronger than in open air, or inside other non-accumulating enclosures, even when the doors are left open for free air circulation.

* Reproduction of the vacuum-GM effect, wherein a Geiger-counter tube soaked in an orgone accumulator would yield variations in its count-activity, by comparison to an uncharged one. My work on this used specialized neutron-counting GM apparatus, thereby suggesting a relationship between orgone energy to the neutron, as the possible “glue” for atomic nuclei.

* I also made the first photos of a blue-glowing VACOR tube since Reich’s time, finding also they could be brought to lumination point merely by stroking with the hand. One electrophysicists who visited the OBRL and witnessed this effect declared “That Can’t Happen!”

* A three year study of orgone-charged mung beans showed they would sprout more quickly and to longer lengths than an un-charged group of beans from the same source, with an approximate 40% growth increase.

* I’ve also undertaken small experimental and historical investigations along the lines of the old ether-drift experiments. A sensitive GPS device was evaluated at OBRL over several years, indicating its “drift error” was something systematic, related to geographical and cosmical coordinates. Several of my research papers re-evaluating the early ether-drift experiments, showing many of them did in fact detect a cosmic ether, have been published. Notably, I have shown how the variations in those ether-drift experiments yield results fully congruent with Reich’s cosmic coordinate system as published in his milestone work Cosmic Superimposition.

Several of my new books have also been published in recent years, beyond Saharasia and the Orgone Accumulator Handbook, often with an historical outlook.

* In Defense of Wilhelm Reich: Opposing the 80-Years’ War of Mainstream Defamatory Slander Against One of the 20th Century’s Most Brilliant Physicians and Natural Scientists

* Marx Engels Lenin Trotsky: Genocide Quotes. The Hidden History of Communism’s Founding Tyrants, in their Own Words. This work was produced as a warning to contemporary “Reichians” who often seem more Marxist than Reichist, as well as to youth culture who too-frequently carry the sentiment that “Communism is Cool”.

Beyond all the above work and activities organized through the OBRL – the overseas expeditions at drought-relief, the laboratory experiments, the publishing of new books and articles, giving lectures at scientific conferences – a series of summer educational seminars was launched during the 1990s and attended by many professionals and young students alike. Up to three weekend seminars and a guided independent study program were offered each summer at OBRL over many years. Invited guest lectures were also given at OBRL by others in scientific or medical orgonomy, and on related matters… the list would be too long to easily summarize. Today, these seminars are restricted to one weekend summer event every two years at OBRL.

For those with interests in the exacting details of my work, I have posted PDF copies of my research papers and PowerPoint lecture slides to the big website, where they can be obtained for free readings and downloads. Here:
What I find most amazing is how my 90 research materials on this website are already being read and downloaded by a great many mainstream academics and university students, placing me within the top 1% of the many millions of global members. I believe it is not an exaggeration to say, my work is stimulating a resurgence of interest in Wilhelm Reich’s science among more open-minded university faculty and students, as well as among the very many independent researchers. A similar situation has developed on the smaller but influential website, where my materials are also posted for easy access. I’ve also created a YouTube channel, as a means of public education and standing up to the “skeptic clubbers”, which today has around 600,000 item views and more than a thousand followers.

None of this public attention was planned out, it merely happened in the course of doing focused serious experimental work, speaking plainly to the facts when opportunity allowed, making my publications and research findings available to the public, and not concealing my strong interests in the subject of Wilhelm Reich and his orgonomic science.

Research at OBRL Today

Today, my work is primarily devoted to laboratory research, writing and lecturing when the opportunity presents itself. But all this new work is limited by the absence of funding. While OBRL in the past acquired funding sufficient to launch overseas projects, and to construct the main laboratory building, mostly this work has developed out of my own financial resources, supplemented by donors who valued my research productivity. I only very rarely received funding support from governments or mainstream institutions. Which is why today I am reaching out for donor-support of my new research and investigations. This appeal is not oriented towards emergency cloudbusting work, as I have made in the past, but rather for support of new laboratory research, now underway and planned for the future at OBRL. Allow me to briefly discuss that.

I continue to investigate the subject of spectroscopy and how the orgone accumulator can affect the optical characteristics of water and open air. New spectrographic equipment is sorely needed to make those investigations, to supplement the excellent spectrographic equipment already used for the water-structure findings. An effort is currently underway attempting to identify the spectral characteristics of open air, inside and outside of the orgone accumulator, which requires a completely different set of instrumentation.

A new effort was also initiated towards replication of Reich’s orgone motor. Along that line, over decades I experimentally confirmed many studies on atmospheric electricity and similar factors, even reproducing some of the old Tesla experiments. With some disappointment, I also reviewed the larger subject of “free energy”, finding most of the claims to be over-estimated. This included a few large claims being made about the orgone motor itself. A more serious scientific approach will obviously be necessary. Over years I’ve also studied electronics, something I did as a teenager in constructing amplifiers and radio equipment, a hobby of sorts which today finds application in construction of new circuitry for orgonomic investigations. I’ve acquired several of the old spinner motors Reich used in his original orgone motor experiments. And in related studies, the phenomenon of gravitation as Reich detailed in a few of his last publications, is under renewed experimental investigation.

At the moment I am writing a research paper on the new spectrographic findings, as described in the opening paragraph of this letter. A new book on the ether-drift experiments, and the similarities between the older cosmic ether of space, and the cosmic orgone energy, is in preparation. As Reich noted, the older theory of cosmic ether was a useful concept, prematurely discarded. The evidence I uncovered indicates it was discarded for political, and not scientific reasons, and that many diverse scientists have independently measured the cosmic ether, plotting very similar astronomical vectors of ether-drift.

Also for the future will be a long delayed book on my cloudbusting experiments, and the controlling nature of the Saharasian Desert Belt on global climate, detailing how this will change the atmospheric sciences. Also delayed, my “Update on Saharasia” book. An abundance of new research findings, but less time available for writing than I would desire.

My research into Reich’s work and related concepts has been focused and on-going now for 40 years, and the OBRL facility is an excellent place where this research will continue for many decades into the future. New findings along these new paths as laid out for myself could result in additional new findings of an “earth-shaking” nature. I hope you will join with me in this quest and adventure, helping to fund the research, to attend my seminars, and to purchase and enjoy the books and research materials as are periodically offered to the public, as many of you have in the past. And if all the material presented above is new to you, then truly you must get on the OBRL mailing list for future notifications, as is available through our OBRL-News Yahoo Group: It is not a discussion group, to eat up your time, but an occasional one-way notification channel from OBRL to you.

Your Support is Necessary, Critical, and Much Appreciated

Today I ask those who are able to make a donation for the future of orgonomy, to help fund my research and sustenance of the good work being undertaken at OBRL. If everyone reading this could give a $100 or greater donation, based upon the several thousand people on my mailing lists, that would bring a sum sufficient for OBRL needs over many years into the future, and all necessary equipment needs would be met. Again, all donations to OBRL this time will be fully reserved for laboratory research here at my institute in Oregon, and not for field work anywhere else. OBRL is a 501-c-3 non-profit research and educational foundation, approved by the IRS for tax-deductible donations.

Please make your donation as soon as possible, for funding of this important research.

You can donate by using our on-line webpage:
You can use your credit card to make a donation through PayPal, which does not require membership to use their service. They also allow recurring payments, where for example a $25 per month donation would be very helpful and appreciated.

You can also send a check or money-order, made out to Orgone Biophysical Research Lab, or “OBRL”, to the following postal address:
