Debbie Bird, allergica alla tecnologia della vita moderna, costretta a rinunciare al cellulare, forno a microonde e internet

22 Marzo 2007 – “virtualblognews.altervista.org”, di Pino Silvestri

Debbie Bird, inglese di 39 anni, è diventata allergica alla tecnologia della vita moderna. Non può avvicinarsi ai computers, ai cellulari, forni a microonde, in sostanza a quasi tutto quello che la moderna tecnologia sforna giornalmente. Ha problemi anche con alcune automobili equipaggiate con componenti elettronici. Il suo corpo reagisce con chiazze cutanee dolorose e rigonfiamento delle palpebre.
Debbie Bird, racconta:
“La mia vita è stata influenzata seriamente dai campi elettromagnetici. Adesso non possiedo il microonda, non posso utilizzare il cellulare e il cordless, ho un televisore con lo schermo al plasma perché quello con il tubo catodico ha scatenato l’allergia. Non posso utilizzare la Bmw super elettronica di un amico, appena salgo in macchina mi viene l’emicrania e formicolio. Problemi anche quando devo andare a fare acquisti, non posso entrare in luoghi come Starbucks (catena internazionale di caffetterie), perché hanno postazioni internet Wi-Fi”.
La signora Bird, ha avvertito il problema allergico alle onde elettromagnetiche quando si è trasferita con il marito e la figlia Antonia, in un moderno appartamento a Bowden (Manchester).  Ignorava che tutti i suoi vicini abitavano in appartamenti  con collegamenti internet senza fili e cordless.
“Inizialmente non potevo dormire” – racconta la signora Bird -, “la mia pelle reagiva con sensazioni di bruciore in faccia e sui gomiti, sulla fronte si era formata una severa allergia” [v. foto].
Una visita medica da un esperto dermatologo, cure senza nessun beneficio per la severità dell’allergia, consigliarono la signora Bird e il marito, a trasferirsi a Manchester Hale.
Prima di insediarsi nel nuovo appartamento, i coniugi Bird, hanno fatto controllare da un esperto la presenza delle onde elettromagnetiche.
L’appartamento è stato completamento isolato con alcuni accorgimenti:
– pellicola protettiva sulle finestre;
– vernice nera del carbonio alle pareti per deviare i raggi nocivi;
– tende della camera placcate d’argento;
– sotto alla rete del letto, una zanzariera con fitte maglie metalliche placcate d’argento, anche questa per proteggere dalle radiazioni.
La signora Bird, ha detto che proteggere l’appartamento dalle radiazioni elettromagnetiche, ha richiesto un costo di una certa importanza, ma n’è valsa la pena: le sue chiazze cutanee sono sparite, non ha più difficoltà per dormire.
Ufficialmente nel Regno Unito, l’elettrosensibilità (es), non è considerata un problema medico, nessuna prova scientifica per sostenere un collegamento fra campi elettromagnetici e problemi di salute: quando insorgono, sono attribuiti a sintomi psicosomatici, collegati a influenza e virus e non ai campi elettromagnetici. Molti non  concordano, tra questi, Rod Read, direttore della “Electro-Sensitivity UK”:
“Ho visto centinaia di persone manifestare i sintomi tipici dell’allergia ai campi elettromagnetici. Purtroppo, è una malattia che è “nascosta” dai governi, in combutta con le aziende elettroniche, perché temono che la popolazione può allarmarsi nel venire a conoscenza che i cellulari e i forni a microonde sono pericolosi per la salute.
Nel passato molti medici attribuivano i sintomi all’influenza, ora, grazie a Debbie Bird, la patologia è chiara, i campi elettromagnetici possono minare psicologicamente e fisicamente la vita umana.

I campi elettromagnetici le provocano un doloroso arrossamento della pelle
e forte lacrimazione. E deve vivere in campagna in una villa speciale

Se c’è gente che dell’auto non può fare a meno Debbie Bird invece deve assolutamente evitarle: i campi elettromagnetici le provocano un doloroso arrossamento della pelle e forte lacrimazione.

“Non posso più fare cose che fino a poco fa davo per scontate”, ha dichiarato Bird, 39 anni, al ‘Daily Mail’. “La mia vita di tutti i giorni era fortemente influenzata da (strumenti che emanano) campi elettromagnetici”.
“Non posso entrare nell’auto dei miei amici. Altrimenti inizio subito ad avere mal di testa e la pelle del viso mi brucia”, ha aggiunto. “Anche fare shopping è diventato un problema. Non posso andare in posti come Starbucks dove sono installati strumenti wi-fi”.

Bird ha capito di essere sensibile alle onde elettromagnetiche lo scorso anno quando traslocò assieme a suo marito e a sua figlia Antonia a Bowdon, 25 chilometri a sud-ovest di Manchester. Ben presto si accorse, dalle reazioni della sua pelle, che i suoi vicini utilizzavano telefoni portatili e connessione ad internet senza filo.

“All’inizio non riuscivo a dormire”, ha raccontato la donna. “Poi ho iniziato ad avere delle reazioni sulla pelle. Sentivo una sensazione di bruciore al viso, sulla fronte e sui gomiti”.

Bird consultò un dermatologo ma alla fine l’unica soluzione fu di trasferirsi in una nuova casa nella vicina Hale. Qui dovette spendere oltre 3.000 sterline (4.500 euro) per eliminare dalla sua nuova abitazione ogni tipo di campo elettromagnetico.

I muri sono stati dipinti con vernice al nerofumo e le finestre sono state isolate con una pellicola protettiva. Inoltre, lei e suo marito Tony, 45 anni, dormono in un letto protetto da una zanzariera in silver plate che respinge le onde elettromagnetiche. Nel Regno Unito ufficialmente non esiste una malattia che implica sensibilità alle onde elettromagnetiche. Secondo i medici non ci sono prove sufficienti che queste ultime provochino danni alla salute.

EMFs: sense and sensitivity

[Citiamo:

But countering this are the thousands of case studies of people who suddenly suffered fatigue or concentration problems without ever knowing they were in an environment of high EMF levels. In Sweden alone, which has some of the highest reported rates in Europe along with Germany and Denmark, around 250,000 people were identified as EHS sufferers in 2004, while it’s less prevalent in the UK, Austria and France.

Independent research studies are also starting to come down on the side that EHS is very real. One report—entitled ‘Electromagnetic hypersensitivity: fact or fiction?’—decided that it is, indeed, a fact. And more tellingly, the lead author, Professor Stephen Genuis at the University of Alberta in Canada, concluded that “many scientists now recognize that hypersensitivity to EMR (electromagnetic radiation) can be a debilitating medical condition that is affecting increasing numbers of people throughout the world”]

May 2016 (Vol. 27 Issue 2) – “www.wddty.com”, by Bryan Hubbard



Health agencies are in denial over the existence of EHS—electromagnetic hypersensitivity—and especially that EMFs from PCs, mobile phones, Wi-Fi and power lines could be to blame

It’s called ‘electromagnetic hypersensitivity’ (EHS)—a collection of symptoms that range from headaches, concentration problems and insomnia to skin irritation and fatigue. Yet despite the name, the World Health Organization (WHO) and most of the world’s major governments don’t accept that it’s caused by electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from electrical appliances, computers, mobile phones and masts, and power lines.

And there’s only a grudging acceptance that EHS is even a genuine health problem. If it does exist, it affects only around 1 per cent of a population, while the general view is that it’s a problem more in the mind of the sufferer. Sceptics point to studies where EHS sufferers responded more strongly to devices that weren’t emitting EMFs than those that were. Some psychologists have even classified it as an escape from the tensions and pace of the modern world.

So what’s the official line on the causes of EHS? According to the WHO, doctors who have an EHS patient should first order full psychiatric or psychological tests. If the patient isn’t mentally unstable, the EHS could be the result of indoor pollution, excessive noise, poor lighting or flickering fluorescent tubes.

But countering this are the thousands of case studies of people who suddenly suffered fatigue or concentration problems without ever knowing they were in an environment of high EMF levels. In Sweden alone, which has some of the highest reported rates in Europe along with Germany and Denmark, around 250,000 people were identified as EHS sufferers in 2004, while it’s less prevalent in the UK, Austria and France.

Independent research studies are also starting to come down on the side that EHS is very real. One report—entitled ‘Electromagnetic hypersensitivity: fact or fiction?’—decided that it is, indeed, a fact. And more tellingly, the lead author, Professor Stephen Genuis at the University of Alberta in Canada, concluded that “many scientists now recognize that hypersensitivity to EMR (electromagnetic radiation) can be a debilitating medical condition that is affecting increasing numbers of people throughout the world”.1

Follow the money

The cynic might suggest that the reluctance to recognize EHS as a genuine health concern—and EMFs as the cause—boils down to one simple issue: money. Aside from the vast amounts that would have to be paid out in compensation to EHS victims, governments have received enormous sums from the telecoms industry, which has also happened to fund the majority of research that has failed to identify EMFs as a health hazard. The UK government, for instance, garnered £2.3 billion from the auction of the new 4G mobile phone licences in 2013.

But despite the financial pressures, some countries are recognizing EHS as a genuine medical condition. The Swedish government has described it as a “functional impairment”, while Spain has classified it as a “permanent disability” and the Canadian Human Rights Commission includes EHS among a list of environmental sensitivities.

French authorities have gone further and declared EMFs as the cause not only of EHS, but also of various cancers, and small children are especially vulnerable. Last year, they banned the use of Wi-Fi in nursery schools, and ordered that networks be switched off when there are no lessons in schools catering to children aged up to 11. A French court also recognized EHS as a real condition and awarded the 39-year-old claimant, Marine Richard, a £650-a-month disability grant after she described her “allergy” to electronic devices, such as her mobile phone, Wi-Fi router and TV set. Her reactions included heart palpitations, nausea and headaches, and she now lives in a converted barn with no electricity.

Despite its reticence, the WHO has recognized EHS as a “non-specific, multisystem illness”, and has also classified EMFs as possible carcinogens, or cancer-causing agents—although it has stopped short of linking one as a cause of the other.

EHS has even achieved cult status. One of the characters in Better Call Saul, a TV series spin-off of Breaking Bad, is a sufferer who wears a tin-foil sheet when he’s at home.

Do the right thing

Estimates vary for the number of people affected by EHS. Researchers have reckoned that anything from 1 to 8 per cent of a population may be so sensitive that they can’t function properly, while many more could have symptoms, such as insomnia or occasional memory lapses, but never associate them with ‘electrosmog’, as it’s called.

With this build-up of evidence and recognition of EHS by some governments, one group of scientists now wants every major country to accept the dangers of EMFs and limit the exposure of people—and especially children. In 2015, 24 scientists issued a declaration to have EHS “officially recognized” and included in the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). They also want government health agencies to adopt simple precautionary measures and warn the public about the potential dangers of EMFs.

In the UK, British doctor Erica Mallery-Blythe has created the organisation PHIRE (Physicians’ Health Initiative for Radiation and Environment), which she hopes will begin to inform the public and get doctors, schools, parents and patients better educated about these risks and working together. “It is impossible” she states, “for individuals to give informed consent, when they are not informed”.

Here in the UK, we use the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) safety guidelines that were devised in 1998 to protect against tissue heating (thermal) effects. But, argues Dr. Mallery-Blythe those standards are obsolete and based on science that has been undermined by thousands of studies that demonstrate serious non-thermal biological effects at intensities far below this level. Other countries, and most other members of the EU, have abandoned the ICNIRP guidelines for far lower safety levels of radiation. She hopes that the UK will take urgent action to protect their citizens as other nations are now doing

So what’s safe?

We’re surrounded by EMFs and always have been. The light from the sun and the earth’s magnetic field are two sources, but from the beginning of the previous century—with the introduction of the electric light bulb and electrical appliances in the home—our exposure started to increase. Today, we live in the electrosmog coming from TVs, power lines, PCs and laptops, Wi-Fi and routers, and mobile phones and masts.

Cases similar to EHS symptoms were reported as early as 1932 and they’ve been given a range of labels over the years, such as microwave sickness or syndrome, radio-wave syndrome, EMF intolerance syndrome and rapid ageing syndrome. In the 1960s, workers in the old USSR and Poland who were exposed to EMR reported a range of debilitating symptoms, and similar patterns were seen among military personnel in 1974.

The science supports the idea that these symptoms are not just ‘all in the head’. Studies have found that EMFs can
affect brain activity, while others have noted changes in the body’s cells, reactions that have been objectively measured by scientists.

Although we can all react differently to EMFs, scientists believe that EMF exposure reduces the body’s melatonin levels while raising nitric oxide (NO).2 These changes affect the body’s ability to fight cancer, and can lead to sleeping disorders, increased cholesterol levels and raised blood pressure.

Brain-wave patterns are also altered by EMF exposures. One study found that 45 minutes of exposure to pulsed microwaves affected choline levels in the brains of laboratory rats. Choline is a building block of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that affects memory, intelligence and mood.3 Mobile phones have similar effects. Researchers in Finland found that just 33 minutes of mobile phone use suppressed glucose metabolism in the brain, which suggests that the brain’s neurons become starved of sugar, so leading to concentration, learning and memory problems.4

These physiological changes are also reflected in population studies. One review discovered that eight out of 10 studies of communities living less than 500 metres from a mobile-phone base station reported an increase in neurobehavioural symptoms and in cancer. Yet, the exposure to EMF radiation in each case was well within the current safety levels.5

Symptoms like headaches, poor concentration and irritability also got worse the closer a person was to a base station.6 And one Austrian study found an association between levels of high-frequency EMFs (like those used in mobile phones) in bedrooms and symptoms like headaches and concentration difficulties.7

Dr Mallery-Blythe describes the rise of EMFs as “the largest change to the earth’s electromagnetic environment that has ever taken place in human history”. Unless we act, she echoes the fears of experts who predict that this could become “the greatest public health disaster in planetary history”.

Paying the piper

Health agencies have pretty much relied on the 13-country Interphone Study results as a gauge of health hazards with mobile-phone use. Its various studies have consistently found no risk, and one even suggested that the devices can protect against brain cancer.

The study was partly funded by the Mobile Manufacturers Forum (MMF) and the Global System for Mobile Communication Association (GSMA), two groups that stand to benefit from positive results.

But funding seems to have skewed the results, as a team of independent researchers from the Republic of Korea found when they took another look at the findings. On analyzing only the independent studies—and putting to one side the Interphone trials, which the researchers said were of very poor quality—they discovered that continual use of a mobile phone for 10 years or longer increased the chances of developing a brain tumour by up to 34 per cent.1

This funding effect was also identified by researchers from the University of Berne, Switzerland, who found that studies paid for by the telecoms industry were the least likely to report any significant effect of exposure compared with those paid for by charities or other independent agencies.2

Dr Mallory-Blythe will be giving a talk on EMFs and the possible dangers to our health at a public meeting at the College of Naturopathic Medicine, 41 Riding House Street, London W1W 7BE, on 7 June 2016. The talk will start at 6.30 pm. Tickets: £15; www.naturopathy-uk.com/events/events-special-uk/#emblon

ripetitoreEssere affetti da “fatica cronica e da elettrosensibilità” a causa dell’esposizione a qualsiasi apparecchiatura elettronica che genera e scatena campi elettromagnetici: una condizione non riconosciuta, men che meno dall’Organizzazione Mondiale della Sanità.  La storia di Savino e la sua lotta per vedere affermato il diritto alla salute e all’ambiente

di Marialaura Garripoli

Incontro Savino in un tardo pomeriggio. “Per prima cosa,” – mi dice – “spegni il cellulare”. Obbedisco, inevitabilmente, sapendo che per lui è un problema. Un piccolo passo indietro di otto anni: un ristorantino in gestione nella felliniana ed eterna Roma ed il resto del tempo speso per il volontariato. Ma una nuova offerta di lavoro sta per cambiargli la vita, del tutto inconsapevole della svolta che prenderà: entra a far parte di una società appaltatrice per la Apple, la più grande azienda di computer e sistemi operativi. I ritmi sono frenetici, tra software, portate ed impegno sociale. E la stanchezza comincia a farsi sentire; probabilmente, il contraccolpo di questa vita estremamente piena e dei tanti caffè presi per restare attivo. Ma insieme alla stanchezza aumentano i capogiri, gli sbandamenti, i mal di testa, le palpitazioni. Savino va a lavoro e lamenta seri fastidi; torna a casa e sta meglio, se non fosse che sente l’irrefrenabile esigenza di dormire il più possibile. La spossatezza, ormai cronica, non sembra passare; mentre sembrano aumentare anche i disturbi epidermici, rossori ed eritemi al viso. È evidente che qualcosa non va, specie quando sente vicino un cellulare. Aumentano i sintomi, sempre più pressanti: forti acufeni, accentuata astenia e disturbi del linguaggio, dolori muscolari ed articolari, stato confusionale fino alla perdita di coscienza. Ma nessun medico ha una risposta per lui. Da solo, Savino comincia a fare delle ricerche, cercando di capire una plausibile causa dalla quale possano derivare le sue reazioni. Dopo tanti, diversi e diversificati tentativi, nel 2013 incontra il prof. Giuseppe Genovesi, specialista in Endocrinologia, Psichiatria ed Immunologia nonché ricercatore presso il Dipartimento di Medicina Sperimentale del Policlinico Umberto I dell’Università di Roma “La Sapienza”. Il dottor Genovesi parla chiaro: il paziente è affetto da “fatica cronica e da elettrosensibilità” [(ES) o elettroipersensibilità (EHS), ndr], dovuta all’esposizione a qualsiasi apparecchiatura elettronica che genera e scatena campi elettromagnetici. Tradotto: gran parte di ciò che caratterizza e circonda la nostra vita da terzo millennio. E così, Savino dovrà evitare il contatto diretto, l’esposizione e persino la vicinanza a qualsiasi campo elettromagnetico; ed è ovvio che questa singolare condizione “limita significativamente la sua vita di relazione”, configurando un evidente danno morale (in aggiunta a quello biologico). Di colpo, la disoccupazione; il ritorno in Basilicata, sua terra d’origine, e l’adesione all’Associazione A.M.I.C.A. – Associazione per le Malattie da Intossicazione Cronica e/o Ambientale. “Gli attuali limiti di sicurezza ambientale in Italia e in Europa non tengono sufficientemente conto del Principio di Precauzione e sono fortemente condizionate da principi economici” – si legge sul sito dell’associazione; pertanto, “l’informazione è il solo strumento che i cittadini hanno per proteggersi, per fare scelte avvedute come consumatori e per chiedere ai medici e ai politici una maggiore attenzione verso le cause tossiche ambientali di molte delle malattie più diffuse oggi”.

Una condizione non riconosciuta, men che meno dall’Organizzazione Mondiale della Sanità (OMS), ma che ha portato il Consiglio d’Europa – il 27 Maggio 2011 (con risoluzione n. 1815) – a considerare ed usare il “principio di precauzione”, prestando “un’attenzione particolare alle persone elettrosensibili che soffrono di una sindrome di intolleranza ai campi elettromagnetici e di introdurre specifiche misure per proteggerli, inclusa la creazione di aree wave-free, non coperte dalle reti wireless”; mentre già nel Dicembre 2006, in seduta plenaria, l’Assemblea Generale delle Nazioni Unite adottava la Convenzione con la quale si tutelava chi è affetto da Sensibilità Chimica Multipla, da Elettrosensibilità e da altre forme di disabilità difficilmente diagnosticabili (le cosiddette “disabilità funzionali”). Ma nel suo piccolo, nella sua regione, Savino non molla: nell’Ottobre del 2013, la Regione Basilicata riconosce come rare l’Elettrosensibilità [codice regionale RQG020, ndr], la “Sindrome Gilles de la Tourette, la “Cisti di Tarlov” e la “Sindrome Sistemica da allergie al nichel”, tanto da riconoscerne il diritto all’esenzione dal costo delle relative prestazioni sanitarie. La prima ed unica regione in Italia. Oggi, dopo tutti questi anni, Savino ha imparato (suo malgrado) a convivere con la sua elettroipersensibilità: vive a stretto contatto con la natura, lontano il più possibile da qualsiasi fonte di onde elettromagnetiche; ma mai lontano del tutto. Ha inevitabilmente imparato a gestire la sua condizione. I trascorsi 29 e 30 di Aprile, in tutta risposta all’Internet Day, hanno visto la contromanifestazione simbolica che invita a spegnere il router in favore di salute e ambiente: il Comitato Nazionale “No Wi-Fi Days” ha chiesto alla politica estrema prudenza rispetto alle connessioni senza fili, facendo appello proprio a quella risoluzione del 2011 a firma del Consiglio d’Europa. Per più di qualcuno, i ripetitori non giovano.

Why Die for Wi-Fi? My Child Did – Will Yours?

Why die for Wi-Fi? My child did – will yours?
by Debra Fry, posted 3 May 2016

On the 11th of June 2015, my 15 year old daughter, Jenny Fry was found by me, hanged in woods near our home in Oxfordshire, UK .

She was utterly exhausted; instead of receiving sympathy and understanding, she was battling the school for giving her detentions and refusing to acknowledge her difficulty around wifi, which had a profound effect on her ability to concentrate, write, explain things, and function in school.

I went into the school on several occassions to try to educate them on the health dangers to all pupils and staff, as well as the effect it was having on Jenny, but I was told that for as many reports that there are showing harm, there are as many available online saying that wifi is safe (although I have not seen any saying this).

The head teacher did say he would double check; I left him a list of information – reports and websites – to check. He also said he could not turn off the wifi for one child; I said it was not just for Jenny, but it would be healthier for everyone.

I even had a heated exchange with a member of staff, saying that Jenny is allergic to wifi.

It’s the same as a peanut allergy – you would not leave peanuts all around the school, so why expose her to wifi? Knowing that it will cause her problems?

They refused to let me measure with my electrosmog meter to find safer, more comfortable areas for Jenny to work in. And they told me off for taking readings at a parents’ evening.

I also contacted the Governors of the school, the local Education Department, the Radiation Advisor used by them, the Chief Scientific Officer, the Chief Medical Officer, the National Radiological Protection board, the Health Protection Agency, Public Health England, and my MP and GPs.

Jenny was an intelligent child who had a great thirst for knowledge, and her education was very important to her. She wanted to put it to good use, and somehow help humanity, as a doctor, exploring the world.

At age 6, she wanted to know how the moon stays up in the sky, and everything about the universe.

She flew through school with no problems until the wifi was fitted in Chipping Norton senior school in November 2012, and for a few months at home.

Jenny was very popular and liked by her peers, and befriended children of all abilities and backgrounds.

She was highly organised and self motivated. She did not have to be asked to do her homework .

She was my wounderful, beautiful, thriving, happy, healthy, helpful, caring, sensitive daughter, until she was exposed to wifi, which emits pulsing microwave radiation, when her physical health began to crumble.

Her death was totally preventable, if I had been listened to earlier.

Her symptoms : headaches, fatigue, joint pains, sleep problems, skin irritation, rash, anaemia, menstrual cycle disruption, heart flutters, difficulty concentrating, temperature control, urine urgency, overwhelming sense of needing to leave some classrooms at school.

She had a really bad nose bleed at home while she was doing home work on her wifi laptop; she came down stairs saying “please help me, I cannot stop my nose bleeding and I have not knocked it.” As a nurse, even I had a job to stop it.

We were both so concerned that I looked up nosebleed / wifi online, and was totally shocked at what I found; the more I researched, the more evidence I found from doctors and scientists saying that wifi was not safe for children, just as mobile phones were not.

I was in the back garden on a sunny day, trying to find a school without wifi and continuing my research into the health effects, using a wifi laptop, when I realised – wow this technology is amazing; it’s coming through brick walls, just like xrays.

This was the moment I realised how dangerous this stuff could be. But at the time I thought that I was trying to save her from future cancer, future fertility problems, as well as the list of symptoms above.

We immediately switched off the wifi at home and fitted ethernet cables, which helped Jenny to sleep, and helped some of her symptoms to go or improve. However, at school, some would return, or be triggered and exacerbated by their Rukus Zoneflex 7982 wifi.

I was also unknowingly affected by the wifi, having a racing heart, sharp pains in my eyes, and tinnitus, which I had just put down to my age, only to be shocked when I realised they had all gone after we had switched the wifi off for Jenny.

I felt so energised, as it confirmed my diagnosis was right for Jenny – having previously tried new lined curtains, a new mattress, visits to GPs and dentists, but all to no avail.

I could not find a school without wifi. I offered to let her stay and work at home, but she was in the middle of her GCSEs, and wanted to be with her friends.

So I tried again to get the wifi switched off at her school, but although I was now being listened to by someone in high office, it was too late for Jenny.

I miss Jenny everyday, and will spend the rest of my life trying to get justice for her, and campaigning to raise awareness of the health hazards from wifi / microwave radiation exposure, which should never have been put anywhere near our children.

I hope to help her to achieve her dreams of helping humanity, by telling her tragic – but totally preventable – story.

So please join the fight to protect our remaining precious children from wifi – before its too late. Prevention is better than cure.

How? Reduce the tsunami of wifi invading their lives. Switch off wifi in schools, homes and hospitals, and provide wired ethernet access to the internet.
