There are also zones where radiation intensity differs greatly from the norm.

Much information can be gleaned from an examination of the effects of these zones, such as changes to air ions, human skin resistance, and natural radioactivity.

Might it be possible to locate “cancer zones” with these measurements?

Not necessarily. But it is wise to take precautions in areas of unusual activity, as they may have an impact on health. Using a sensitive scintillation counter can help pinpoint areas of potential risk in your home.

What Are GMOs?

From April 19th through April 25th we launch GMO Awareness Week. We set aside an entire week dedicated to providing you with information on GMOs and labeling initiatives.

GMOs are a product of genetic engineering, meaning their genetic makeup has been altered to induce a variety of “unique” traits to crops, such as making them drought-resistant or giving them “more nutrients.” GMO proponents claim that genetic engineering is “safe and beneficial,” and that it advances the agricultural industry. They also say that GMOs help ensure the global food supply and sustainability. But is there any truth to these claims? I believe not. For years, I've stated the belief that GMOs pose one of the greatest threats to life on the planet. Genetic engineering is NOT the safe and beneficial technology that it is touted to be.

Help Support GMO Labeling

The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA)—Monsanto’s Evil Twin—is pulling out all the stops to keep you in the dark about what’s in your food. For nearly two decades, Monsanto and corporate agribusiness have exercised near-dictatorial control over American agriculture. For example, Monsanto has made many claims that glyphosate in Roundup is harmless to animals and humans. However, recently the World Health Organization (WHO) had their research team test glyphosate and have labeled it a probable carcinogen.

Public opinion around the biotech industry's contamination of our food supply and destruction of our environment has reached the tipping point. We're fighting back. That's why I was the first to push for GMO labeling. I donated a significant sum to the first ballot initiative in California in 2012, which inspired others to donate to the campaign as well. We technically "lost the vote, but we are winning the war, as these labeling initiatives have raised a considerable amount of public awareness.

The insanity has gone far enough, which is why I encourage you to boycott every single product owned by members of the GMA, including natural and organic brands. More than 80 percent of our support comes from individual consumers like you, who understand that real change comes from the grassroots.

Thankfully, we have organizations like the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) to fight back against these junk food manufacturers, pesticide producers, and corporate giants.

Together, Let's Help OCA Get The Funding They Deserve

Let’s Help OCA get the funding it deserves. I have found very few organizations who are as effective and efficient as OCA. It’s a public interest organization dedicated to promoting health justice and sustainability. A central focus of the OCA is building a healthy, equitable, and sustainable system of food production and consumption. That's why I'm proud to announce I will be matching donations up to $250,000 this week.

Please make a donation to help OCA fight for GMO labeling.

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

If you find this topic interesting, I would strongly encourage you to download the free report in the link above. It contains an illustrated PDF of Wolfgang Maes’ entire lecture on earth radiation, with important information on the best ways to measure this phenomenon, and how to avoid getting suckered by fraudulent claims. 

Earth radiation, also known as geopathic stress, falls in a similar category as that of electromagnetic fields (EMF), which is to say that it’s scoffed at by many.  

However, just as the science of EMF hazards to human health continue to pile up with each passing year, the issue of geopathic stress may be seeing more light of day as well.  

As usual, Europe is far ahead of the United States in this area. Geopathic stress lines are routinely measured for in Germany, for example, whereas the practice is quite a rarity in the US. 

Despite limited scientific support, I personally believe geopathic stress is very real, and ideally avoided for optimal health, just as I’m a firm believer in avoiding EMF from cell phones, electrical transformers and WiFi routers.

What Is Geopathic Stress?

Geopathic stress is natural radiation that rises up through the earth and becomes distorted by weak electro-magnetic fields, created by subterranean running water, certain mineral concentrations, fault lines, and underground cavities.

Electropathological energy created by modern technology such as high and low frequency energy from telecommunication towers, electricity pylons, transformers, radar and radio towers can also contribute to geopathic stress.

When the wavelengths of the natural radiation are disturbed in this way, they become harmful to living organisms. These “geopathic zones” have a range of influence from 2 to 200 feet, and reach a height of 600 to 30,000 feet.

In this photo from ‘Points of Cosmic Energy’ by Blanche Merz (1995), microwaves can be seen floating above an underground watercourse taken in total darkness.

On the other side of the spectrum, you also have areas that emanate “healing” qualities; lifting you to more subtle levels of vibration and strengthening your body and spirit. Many of these areas are considered sacred sites, such as the natural wonders of Ayers Rock, the Grand Canyon, Sedona, the Matterhorn and countless other places around the globe.

The Dowser That Investigated Cancer

Most attribute the beginnings of modern evaluation of earth radiation to the experiments by the German baron Gustav Freiherr von Pohl, who in 1929 set out to investigate why the village of Vilsbiburg suffered such high incidences of cancer.

He was an expert dowser, and using an arbitrary scale of 0 to 16, he postulated that anything over 9 was a potential hazard. After marking all the danger zones he then checked the town hall records for everyone who had died of cancer in the village, and found that, remarkably, each and every person who had died of cancer had lived or slept over one of these radiation lines.

Other doctors were astounded by this discovery; others remained skeptical and asked von Pohl to repeat the experiment in another town. He did, and the results were identical.

Hartmann Grids

The Hartmann grids were discovered in 1950 by a German medical doctor, Ernst Hartmann. These lines form a grid around the earth, running north to south, and east to west, extending to a height of 60 - 600 feet.

The north-south lines appear approximately every 6 feet 6 inches, and the east-west lines appear approximately every 8 feet 2 inches.

According to Dr. Hartmann, the worst place that a person can sleep or work is over a Hartmann knot, where two Hartmann lines cross, as harmful radiation is intensified at this juncture.

It is not uncommon to find the geopathic zones parallel to, or superimposed upon these Hartmann grids.

Research Finds Links Between Geopathic Stress and Illness

Between September 1987 and December 1988, the Institute of Consumer Research and Product Marketing in Vienna decided to test the theory of geopathic zones’ impact on health.

The aim of “The Vienna Report,” was to establish whether ‘Disturbed Sites’ can produce statistically significant results to support the high degree of interest the phenomenon caused in European mainstream and alternative medical practices.

They found that test subjects subjected to ‘disturbed sites’ experienced:

  • deterioration of electro-biological functioning
  • deterioration of heart frequency reaction (HFR)
  • delayed re-warming time of extremities after being cooled down
  • passive rhythms such as breath and pulse frequency was significantly affected
  • significant reduction of immunoglobulins IgA, IgG, and IgM
  • significant increases in levels of potassium, calcium, and under some conditions, zinc
  • diminished serotonin levels

In conclusion, the Vienna report stated that the “location effect” of the ‘disturbed zone’ on regulatory systems of the human organism is proven without doubt, but that the question of which subsystem or system the location-dependent powers primarily attack remains.

The research team, which consisted of distinguished professors, doctors, engineers, scientists and dowsers, also concluded that there was no evidence linking “location load” to any specific illness, but rather that it is a risk factor that weakens your body and immune system, and increases and reinforces the harmful effects of other pathogenic factors, such as:

• Environmental chemicals, poisons and pollutants.
• Malnutrition / poor diet
• Drugs
• Alcohol
• Psycho social stresses
• Genetic weaknesses
• Electromagnetic pollution

Are You Suffering From Geopathic Stress?

Potential health problems arising from geopathic stress in your environment include:

  • Cardiovascular problems
  • Neurological disabilities and learning difficulties
  • Immune deficiency disorders
  • Chronic fatigue and irritability
  • Body pains and headaches
  • Sudden signs of physical aging
  • Infertility and miscarriages
  • Restless sleep

Fortunately, when your shift away from the disturbed area, such as moving your bed if you’re sleeping over a geopathic zone, your conditions will resolve on their own as your body begins to heal.

The Importance of Sleeping in a Geopathic Stress-Free Area

Sleeping in a geopathic stress fault is particularly harmful to your body. Think about it – you spend about one third of your life in bed. That’s a lot of exposure!

During sleep your brain is supposed to rest half the time and is busy healing your body the other half. However, if you are exposed to geopathic stress during sleep, your brain never receives the full rest it requires to repair and regenerate.

To have optimal health it is important to make certain you are not sleeping on a geopathic stress fault.

If you have trouble sleeping despite trying several of my guidelines for a good night’s sleep, try moving your bed several feet to one side or the other, or to the opposite side of the room so see if it makes a difference. If you find yourself sleeping more soundly in another area of your bedroom, or even in another room of your house, it may be well worth it to stick with it. It’s quite likely your body is responding to unseen energy disturbances.
