 France’s Radiation Agency Bans Sale of iPhone 12.

France’s radiation watchdog Agence Nationale des Frequences (ANFR) has banned sales of Apple’s (AAPL.O) iPhone 12, after tests showed the smartphone breached European radiation exposure limits. The ANFR stated that the model’s Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) – the rate of radiofrequency energy absorbed by the body, was higher than legally allowed. If Apple does not resolve the issue, the ANFR said it would order a recall of the device across France.

(Editor’s Note:  In the U.S., the FCC has refused to acknowledge cell phone radiation as a health hazard.)

Some Tips from William H. Burt, M.D.

 Aconitum Napellus

Sudden hemorrhages from the lungs, with great fear and restlessness.

Great sensitiveness of any part of the body; cannot bear to be touched on account of this sensitiveness.

Peritonitis, in early stage; agonizing

pain, tossing about, with high fever.

Neuralgia, especially in the upper extremities, with numbness of the limb, as if the blood did not circulate.


Great weakness, loss of memory, melancholia, time passes too slowly, an hour seems half a day.

Aggravation: In warm room, during evenings. Amelioration: Open air, cold and motion.

Urtica Urens

The upper part of the body enormously swollen, pale, dropsical, and covered with small confluent, transparent vesicles filled with serum.

Insufficiency or entire absence of the secretion of milk. (Elegant remedy to in- crease the secretion of milk.)

Ustilago Maydis

 Neuralgia of the testicles; every five minutes sharp pains in the testicles that pro- duce faintness. Constant aching in the right testicle for days.

Ovarian dysmenorrhoea with severe pains in the ovaries, uterus, and back, every few minutes; spasmodic pain in the left ovary, which is very sore.

Intermittent neuralgia of the left ovary, which is greatly enlarged and very tender.

Between the menses, constant misery under the left breast.

Valeriana Officinalis

 In globus, and nervous palpitation of the heart, with copious flow of nervous urine, we have no better remedy.

A feeling- as if a thread was hanging down in the throat, with much tickling.

Sensation as of something warm rising in the throat, arresting breathing. The globus, or lump in the throat, is a constant symptom, that cannot be gotten rid of, and is a source of great trouble.

Acidum Sulphuricum

Patient feels in a great hurry, and that everything- must be done in a hurry.

Profuse night sweats, with great debility.

She always has a distressing nightmare before menstruation, which is too early, too profuse, with much debility.


Soreness of the eyeballs; they feel as if they would be pressed into the head.

Can swallow liquids only. Has an aversion for solid food.

Intolerance of pressure. In whatever position the patient lies, the parts rested on feel sore and bruised.


Constant taste of salt in the mouth.  Continual empty eructations, from morning till evening, as if every particle of food was turned into gas.

No remedy causes a more violent inflammation of the larynx. There is much hoarseness, or complete aphonia.

Aggravation: From warmth in general, from wrapping up the head. Cannot even bear the hat on, from motion, noise, and at night.

Iris Versicolor

Nausea and vomiting of sour food. The whole person smells sour; especially useful in acid people. The characteristic pains are sharp, cutting, of short duration, and change often.

Especially useful in sick-headache. Begins with a blur before the eyes, dull, heavy, shooting, throbbing pains in the forehead or right temple, with nausea and acid or bilious vomiting.


 Great debility, independent of any organic disease, from loss of vital fluids, or remaining after severe acute diseases, with copious sweats, and the patient despairs of ever getting well.

Otorrhoea, discharge thin, ichorous, and horribly offensive, having an odor of rotten meat.


Nutrition is poor, not in consequence of poor food, but of deficient assimilation.  Such patients are usually constipated.

Mental exertion is very difficult. Confusion in speaking; it is difficult to seize the right expression. A brief conversation causes confusion of the head and general lassitude, memory is enfeebled.

Characteristic Materia Medica Memorizer – William H. Burt, M. D., 1895

A Brief Case by Dr. Santosh Kumar Pal
A man aged 50, an engineer suffered for 3 years from pain in upper abdomen with pain across left hypochondrium to right hypochondrium. An allopath did many tests and scans, found nothing significant yet prescribed drugs, but in vain. Then they did an appendectomy, but pain continued.

The man came to my hospital for some professional works and by the way he told me of his suffering. The thread of the case: pain across left hypochondrium to right hypochondrium. Transverse colon protrudes like a pad. I prescribed Belladonna 200 and all his suffering went away.
