‘Wi-fi, cellulari & co’: i rischi dell’elettromagnetismo sulla nostra salute

12 luglio 2016 – “www.casalenews.it”

Interessanti spunti di riflessione nella serata organizzata da Mammeincerchio, L’Albero di Valentina e Passi di vita

Chi era presente venerdì scorso all’Auditorium Santa Chiara per l’incontro su “Wifi, cellulari & co” ha capito che ‘indossare’ un telefonino (perché tale è l’intimità raggiunta con questo strumento di comunicazione) può provocare danni alla salute, anche se il mondo scientifico non lo ha ancora dimostrato.

Nell’incontro organizzato da Mamme in cerchio, Albero di Valentina e Passi di vita Onlus, avente per oggetto proprio l’informazione sui rischi provocati dalla prolungata esposizione a onde elettromagnetiche,  autorevoli esperti si sono espressi e confrontati sull’entità e sulla peculiarità delle conseguenze di tale esposizione.

Ha aperto la serata l’epidemiologo Corrado Magnani, che ha richiamato i risultati degli studi scientifici ufficiali, per i quali non ci sono evidenze di una pericolosità delle onde elettromagnetiche ai livelli di esposizione attualmente consentiti, benché le correlazioni con gravi malattie siano in fase di approfondimento.

Terminato il suo intervento, si è voltata pagina: il dottor Orio, vice-presidente dell’Associazione Elettrosensibili, ha riconosciuto i risultati divulgati dalla ricerca scientifica, ma ha dato conto di evidenze medico-sanitarie rilevanti: a fronte della diffusione rapidissima di cellulari e tecnologie wi-fi, i danni al sistema neurologico di bambini e adulti sono aumentati,  e con loro disturbi all’apparato riproduttivo maschile.

Eloquenti le immagini mostrate: le parti a contatto con il telefonino subiscono l’aggressione di onde elettromagnetiche in una forma inedita fino ad oggi.

Sono poi emersi altri aspetti – oggetto di studi indipendenti – che rafforzano l’idea di dover essere prudenti quando ci affidiamo alla connessione wireless, perché, come il professor Magnani ha suggerito,  si tratta di una tecnologia entrata nelle nostre case prima di averne sperimentato e ‘pesato’ gli effetti.

Effetti nefasti, li conoscono bene gli elettrosensibili: persone che – con intensità diverse – registrano l’impossibilità di maneggiare apparecchi come cellulari, computer, microonde.

Alcuni erano presenti all’incontro e hanno portato testimonianze toccanti. È verosimile aspettarsi un aumento di elettrosensibili, e ci si augura che la tecnologia migliori la schermatura degli apparecchi e che la vocazione per il wi-fi venga soppiantata da sistemi più inequivocabilmente sicuri per la salute.

Una serie di consigli dispensati dal professor Sergio Crippa ha, a questo proposito, semplificato la materia: accorgimenti casalinghi praticabili e utili.

Il materiale raccolto dalle associazioni promotrici, che hanno avuto il sostegno e il patrocinio del Comune di Casale e dell’Ordine dei Farmacisti di Alessandria, per la serietà con cui è stata impostata la serata e per la capacità di coinvolgere personalità di prim’ordine, è a disposizione di chi volesse approfondire il tema e per chi – in attesa di evidenze scientifiche (per le quali occorre tempo, quale che sia l’esito) – volesse divulgare l’invito alla prudenza nell’utilizzo del wi-fi. Internet e cellulari si’, ma non a discapito della salute.

US government’s premiere test program finds cancer risk from cell phone radiation: a game-changing global wake-up call

19th June 2016 – “blog.oup.com”, by Devra Davis


Have you heard that cell phones cause cancer, then they don’t, then they do? Confused enough yet? Let me break it down for you. Contrary to some claims, the new US government study by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) is hardly a shot in the dark or a one-off event. With this largest best-conducted animal study, we now have three different studies within the past six years where animals develop some of the same cancers from cell phone radiation as people. In the NTP study, male rats exposed to wireless radiation develop more unusual highly malignant brain tumors—gliomas—as well as very rare tumors of the nerves around and within the heart—schwannomas.

Rodent studies are the gold standard for testing chemicals. In fact, as the American Cancer Society notes, the NTP study comes from a world-renowned test program that involved twice the usual number of animals and triple the typical number of independent reviews of the pathology data. The NTP review process included blinded evaluations by statisticians and pathologists who did not even know the name of the ‘test agent’ they were examining.

An op-ed from the New York Times by pediatrician Aaron Carroll questions the relevance of these animal studies for humans. Chairman of Pediatrics at Hadassah Hospital Jerusalem, Dr. Eitan Kerem, does not agree, stating that “Such findings [of cancers in a test drug] in the pharma industry may prevent further developing of a drug until safety is proven, and until the findings of this study are confirmed parents should be aware of the potential hazards of carcinogenic potential of radiofrequency radiation.”

Prof. Eitan appreciates that every agent known to cause cancer in people, also produces it in animals when well studied. More recently, studies have found significant brain changes in cell-phone exposed Zebra fish which also share important properties with humans. If we fail to heed these studies and insist on more human data, we become the bodies of evidence.

Not a single one of the NTP rat controls developed these rare brain cancers or schwannomas of the heart. Yes it is true that historical controls used in other studies have had a few brain cancers, so why should we not compare these results with that? In scientific research, we take great care to subject controls and exposed animals to the same housing, light, food, water supply, cage rotation, etc. This NTP study placed all animals in a complex reverberation chamber that existed within a metal barrier that blocked all forms of electromagnetic radiation from entering—a Farraday cage. Thus it is entirely plausible that electromagnetic exposures from wiring, ceiling fans, HVAC, or even technicians with phones in their pockets, could have affected control animals in those older studies causing this rare brain tumor and the handful of schwannomas of the heart found in the past in other controls. The fact that not a single one of the controls in this study developed these rare tumors tells us a great deal.

Why then, did brain tumors occur only in male rats? The sexes differ not only in hormones but in the ways that their DNA deals with poisons. In fact, rare precancerous abnormalities in the brain and heart were also reported in both sexes in the NTP study. For many cancer-causing agents, tumors are more common in males than in females—although in this instance, both males and females had significantly more cardiac abnormalities, pre-cancerous lesions, and malignant nerve tumors within and around their hearts.

Wait a minute. Some have claimed that these results are not a true positive, but a false one, that is to say—a false finding that wireless radiation increases cancer. By design, this study had a 97% chance of finding a true positive. Using a relatively small number of animals to study a very rare outcome, this study in fact, had a far greater chance of a falsely negative finding than of a falsely positive result.

Why then does the public know so little about the how cell phones and wireless technology impact our health? In 1994, findings that such radiation could prove a risk spawned an unusual and little-known sport—that of “war-games”—outlined in a memo from Motorola to their PR firm. That year when University of Washington scientists, Henry Lai and V.J. Singh, first showed that radiofrequency radiation (RFR) damaged brain cells in rats, they were subject to well-funded coordinated efforts to discredit their findings, their livelihood, and their integrity. Their university was asked to fire them and the journal editor where their work had been accepted was pressured to un-accept it. Similar disinformation efforts confronted the REFLEX project in 2004—a $15 million European Union multi-lab effort—after it also determined that cellphone radiation caused biological impacts on the brain.

Another paper from the NTP finding genotoxic impacts of wireless radiation is under peer-review at this time. The capacity of this radiation to open membranes is so well established that a number of technologies have been FDA approved to treat cancer relying on electroceuticals that use electromagnetic radiation at various powers, waveforms, and frequencies.

If ever there was a time to re-think our growing dependence on wireless in schools, cars, homes, and energy production, this is it. There is no other suspected cancer-causing agent to which we subject our elementary school students or place directly in front of the brain and eyes with virtual reality. It makes no sense to continue building out huge wireless systems until we have done a better job of putting the pieces of this puzzle together. This latest report from the NTP should give us all pause.

Belgium has banned cell phones for children. Over a dozen countries are curtailing wireless radiation especially for children. Reducing exposures will increase battery life, decrease demand for energy, and lower health risks. Concerted steps to reduce wireless radiation such as those recommended by the Israeli National Center for Non-Ionizing Radiation, France, the Indian Ministry of Health, and the Belgian government are in order now.

Governments have a moral obligation to protect citizens against risks that cannot otherwise be controlled. The epidemics of lung cancer today are evidence we waited far too long to control tobacco. To insist on proof of human harm now before taking steps to prevent future damage places all of us into an experiment without our consent, violating the Nuremberg Code.

Wireless computers positioned close to the body could expose the users to similar levels of radiation as mobile phones

22 June 2016 – “Omega News”

From : Stop Smart Meters! UK

Please see attached by Dr Sarah Starkey which shows some comparisons between cell phones and Wi-Fi devices.  Specifically in relation to dosage, it is not necessarily the router that we need to be most concerned about, but the handheld device, e.g. iPad.
Quote:
Average maximum SAR for a sample of 358 digital mobile phones is 1.02 W/Kg in 1g tissue
(sarvalues.com; adult); iPad maximum SAR on Wi-Fi is 1.19 W/Kg in 1g tissue (iPad Information
Guide; adult). Thus, wireless computers positioned close to the body could expose the users to
similar levels of radiation as mobile phones.
Dr Starkey’s calculations show that iPads can expose children to as much (if not more) radiation than cell phones, especially when considering usage on the lap.
 
My understanding is that iPads, unlike some cell phones (e.g. iPhone 5s), do not have the means to reduce power selectively based on proximity to the nearest router — they emit maximum power constantly.
I have included the 2B document referred to as well which compares with tobacco.

LOCANDINA – consigli per ridurre la esposizione alle Radiofrequenze

ElettrosensibiliRealizzata con il patrocinio dell’Ordine dei Farmacisti della Provincia di Lecce dal Comitato Lecce Via Cavo, insieme alle Associazioni Consumatori Codacons e Codici, a Csv Salento e all’Associazione Italiana Elettrosensibili, questa locandina nasce dalla necessità di informare la popolazione sui possibili rischi per la salute derivanti dall’uso di cellulari, smartphone, tablet, telefoni cordless, apparecchiature Wi-Fi e Wireless in genere, anche per livelli di esposizione alle Radiofrequenze/Microonde inferiori ai limiti di legge.

Le Radiofrequenze/Microonde, utilizzate dalle apparecchiature Wireless, sono state classificate nel 2011 come “possibile cancerogeno per l’uomo” dall’Agenzia Internazionale per la Ricerca sul Cancro (I.A.R.C.), afferente all’Organizzazione Mondiale della Sanità (O.M.S.).

Da più parti è stato invocato il Principio di Precauzione, secondo il quale, in attesa di ulteriori informazioni, è importante adottare misure pratiche per ridurre l’esposizione a queste fonti di inquinamento ambientale.

Numerose sono le evidenze scientifiche (vd. la nostra sezione Riferimenti scientifici, dove ne viene riportata una parte) che correlano l’esposizione alle Radiofrequenze/Microonde con: danni al DNA, insorgenza di tumori maligni al cervello, malattie neurologiche e neurodegenerative, alterazioni del ritmo cardiaco, deficit di apprendimento e di memoria, disturbi cognitivi, mal di testa, insonnia, sintomi di Elettrosensibilità, infertilità, diminuzione dell’udito e tinnito, autismo nei bambini e molto altro.
Sono tra l’altro recentemente stati pubblicati i primi risultati di un importante studio condotto dall’ente governativo statunitense National Toxicology Program, costato finora ben 25 milioni di dollari, dai quali si evince un incremento significativo di due tipi di cancro nei ratti esposti alle Radiofrequenze/Microonde: Glioma (tumore della glia del cervello) e Schwannoma (tumore maligno del cuore).

I bambini andrebbero maggiormente tutelati, perché sono particolarmente vulnerabili agli effetti dannosi delle Radiofrequenze in quanto la loro gracile costituzione e la loro esposizione precoce determinano un rischio maggiore di manifestare tumori e malattie neurodegenerative in età adulta.

La locandina sarà diffusa nelle farmacie di Lecce e provincia, in altri esercizi commerciali e negli studi medici.

Chiunque può contribuire alla sua diffusione scaricando e stampando il file in alta qualità il cui link trovate in calce alla pagina.
Il formato consente una stampa ottimale anche di locandine di grandi dimensioni (A3-A2).

LECCE: UN PASSO AVANTI NELLA LOTTA ALL’ELETTROSMOG

14 giugno 2016 – “www.terranuova.it”

Con il patrocinio dell’Ordine dei Farmacisti della Provincia di Lecce, il Comitato Lecce Via Cavo, insieme alle Associazioni Consumatori Codacons e Codici, a Csv Salento e all’Associazione Italiana Elettrosensibili, ha realizzato la locandina “Dai voce al tuo cervello”.

Lecce: un passo avanti nella lotta all'elettrosmog

«L’iniziativa nasce dalla necessità di informare la popolazione sui possibili danni alla salute legati all’uso di cellulari, cordless, tablet, wifi, etc. – spiegano i promotori – Le radiofrequenze, utilizzate dalla tecnologia senza fili sono state classificate nel 2011 dall’Agenzia Internazionale per la Ricerca sul Cancro (IARC), afferente all’Organizzazione Mondiale per la Salute (OMS), come “possibile cancerogeno per l’uomo”. In quell’occasione il direttore della IARC ha affermato che “in attesa di ulteriori informazioni è importante adottare misure pratiche per ridurre l’esposizione, per esempio usando gli auricolari e i messaggi non in voce”. Da allora sono emerse nuove evidenze scientifiche che correlano l’esposizione alle radiofrequenze con l’insorgenza di tumori maligni al cervello, disordini neurologici, danni al Dna, diminuzione dell’udito, sintomi di elettrosensibilità, alterazioni del ritmo cardiaco, insonnia, cali di memoria, disturbi cognitivi, etc.».

«La locandina, che sarà diffusa nelle farmacie di Lecce e provincia, ed anche in altri esercizi commerciali e studi medici, suggerisce alcuni comportamenti per ridurre la propria esposizione alle radiofrequenze, come quello di tenere lontano il cellulare quando si aspetta la connessione o mentre si invia un sms, o spegnere il wifi quando non è in uso, soprattutto durante la notte per evitare disturbi del sonno, staccando la spina. I bambini andrebbero maggiormente tutelati, poiché sono particolarmente vulnerabili alle radiofrequenze e per la loro esposizione precoce corrono un rischio maggiore di manifestare in età adulta malattie neurodegenerative e tumori. L’Ordine dei Farmacisti della Provincia di Lecce, da sempre sensibile e attento alle problematiche sanitarie ricopre ancora una volta un ruolo di primo piano nella tutela della salute pubblica e della prevenzione delle malattie. L’uso del cellulare e dei dispositivi wifi è diffusissimo ma pochi conoscono i reali danni alla salute che ne potrebbero derivare, anche per livelli di esposizione inferiori ai limiti di legge. Tantissimi studi sono stati realizzati dal 2011 in poi. Ultimo in ordine di tempo è quello condotto dall’ente governativo statunitense National Toxicology Program e costato fino ad ora 25 milioni di dollari. I primi risultati, pubblicati qualche giorno fa, hanno evidenziato un incremento significativo di due tipi di cancro nei ratti esposti alle radiofrequenze: glioma (tumore delle cellulari gliali del cervello) e schwannoma maligno del cuore. Anche uno studio recente condotto dall’Istituto Ramazzini di Bologna ha evidenziato un aumento significativo di schwannoma maligno del cuore nei ratti esposti a campi elettromagnetici di bassissima frequenza. Il professor David Carpenter, direttore dell’Istituto per la Salute e l’Ambiente dell’Università di Albany (New York) ha affermato: “Siamo a un punto di svolta. Sarà molto difficile per i negazionisti non riconoscere l’associazione tra radiofrequenze e tumori”».

Scuola digitale, il progetto cresce. Protestano i genitori anti wifi

15 maggio 2016 – “www.quotidianodipuglia.it”/Lecce, di Stefano Martella

Scuola digitale, il progetto cresce. Protestano i genitori anti wifi

Digitalizzare Lecce, digitalizzare le scuole e le nuove generazioni. È stato questo l’obiettivo portante di Code4Lecce Day, incontro tenutosi ieri mattina alle Officine Cantelmo ed evento conclusivo di #HPECode4Lecce, progetto del Comune di Lecce, con l’Assessorato alle Politiche Comunitarie e Assessorato alla Pubblica Istruzione, in collaborazione con HP Enterprise, azienda leader nel settore delle attrezzature informatiche.
Il progetto punta a innovare tutta la filiera educativa: dalla scuola primaria alla formazione professionale, supportando con tecnologie innovative i modelli pedagogici e didattici. Insomma, insegnanti e alunni avranno a che fare sempre di più con una istruzione digitalizzata. Infatti, nell’ambito del progetto, più di mille bambini delle scuole leccesi hanno partecipato ad incontri di coding, ovvero a giochi di programmazione informatica.
Inoltre altri incontri sono stati pensati per formare i docenti su queste nuove tecnologie.

Oltre alla formazione, il progetto prevedeva una fase di vera e propria fornitura accessoria. Per questo sono stati installati 49 hotspotswifi gratuiti sugli istituti scolastici e altri luoghi culturali. Poi, sempre ieri mattina, ai dirigenti scolastici sono stati consegnati centinaia di tablet, robottini elettronici e pc.
In futuro verrà previsto anche il rilascio di 1750 certificazioni digitali, delle quali una prima parte è già stata prenotata dalle scuole per i loro studenti, mentre una seconda sarà destinata a cittadini leccesi. Soddisfazione è stata espressa dal’assessore Alessandro Delli Noci: «Creare una cittadinanza digitale era l’obiettivo iniziale del progetto e certamente abbiamo gettato delle buone basi, con un investimento enorme nella formazione e nelle infrastrutture digitali – afferma l’assessore – Dal binomio innovazione e cultura passa il futuro di questa città e la sua ribalta nazionale ed internazionale. Abbiamo contribuito fattivamente alla formazione di cittadini digitali protagonisti e consapevoli».

Loredana Capone, assessore regionale allo Sviluppo economico, era presente all’incontro ed esprime la sua soddisfazione per il progetto e per la sinergia con cui due enti pubblici hanno collaborato per il territorio: «Formare il cittadino digitale: questo è un compito importantissimo non più rinviabile – commenta Capone -. Perché il mondo cambia rapidamente e i giovani devono essere pronti ad affrontarlo.
Se vorranno creare un’impresa o lavorare come manager, per ogni ruolo sarà indispensabile conoscere queste tecnologie. Ma il circolo virtuoso deve prevedere che anche i servizi siano resi in modo digitale e, quindi,formare le competenze è fondamentale».

LA CONTESTAZIONE

«Perché irradiamo i nostri bambini se li amiamo?». Era questa la domanda provocatoria che i componenti del Comitato “Lecce Via Cavo” – un collettivo di genitori contrari all’utilizzo della tecnologia wifi nelle scuole – ponevano sopra alcuni volantini che hanno distribuito all’interno delle Officine Cantelmo, mentre sul palco si avvicendavano
gli ospiti. Altri hanno mostrato dei cartelloni di protesta.
L’intento è stato quello di accendere un faro sulla pericolosità delle onde elettromagnetiche sulla popolazione, specialmente quella più piccola.

«Il Comune installa 50 nuove antenne sugli edifici scolastici e promuove la tecnologia wifi anche all’interno
delle scuole, ignorando gli avvertimenti sulla salute provenienti dalla scienza internazionale ed esponendo la popolazione studentesca ad un rischio maggiore di manifestare in età adulta danni neurologici e tumori – dice Fabia del Giudice, rappresentante del comitato -. Particolare attenzione va rivolta ai bambini: i loro corpi sono più piccoli, le ossa del cranio sono più sottili e il loro sistema nervoso è in via di sviluppo. Nel 2014 il dottor Miller, consulente dell’Oms e del National Cancer Institute, ha affermato che le radiazioni wireless, provenienti ad esempio da wifi o tablet, non devono entrare nelle scuole, soprattutto nelle primarie». Sono tanti i motivi che spingono i membri del comitato a manifestare il loro scetticismo sull’utilizzo di questa tecnologia nelle scuole. Non c’è solo il rischio di contrarre tumori, a spaventare sono anche altri disturbi. «Nei bambini l’uso precoce può influire negativamente su attenzione, memoria e sviluppo del linguaggio – continua del Giudice -. Pc e tablet diminuiscono la capacità di leggere e scrivere correttamente. Per l’Accademia degli studi di Francia producono crisi nel ragionamento induttivo. Altri studi hanno evidenziato l’insorgenza di demenza digitale in bambini e adolescenti assidui utilizzatori di apparecchiature elettroniche. Quindi chiediamo che questa tecnologia venga usata con razionalità, soprattutto in luoghi come la scuola».

Children are not at higher risk from mobile phones?

Press Release

As the world’s radiation protection agency meets in Cape Town, scientists call for the retraction of

a study from a top industry researcher claiming that children are not at higher risk from mobile phones

May 9, 2016

The International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) is a self-appointed body that sets the safety guidelines used by the World Health Organisation to cover all radiation from electrical and electronic apparatus, including power lines, smartphones, wifi, and telecoms masts.

ICNIRP is currently meeting in Cape Town to decide, among other things, whether there is any evidence that children are at higher risk from this radiation. ICNIRP has not revised its radiation safety guidelines since 1998, completely ignoring the vast proliferation of wireless technologies since then, including the widespread use of mobile phones by children.

As this international scientific workshop convenes, a call is being made for the retraction of a paper on children’s exposure to radiation, produced by one of the most prominent industry-associated researchers in this field, Professor “C-K” Chou, the former head of research at Motorola Laboratories. Chou is a well-known and controversial figure who has argued for decades that there is no danger from mobile phones, despite even his own research early in his career showing greatly elevated cancer rates in rats exposed to microwaves (he called this a “provocative” finding at the time).

However, a recent paper by Kenneth Foster and C-K Chou contains such obvious manipulation that open calls are being made by other scientists for this study to be retracted. Great concern has been raised about the exposure of children to mobile phone radiation; many news articles quote scientists saying that children’s heads absorb more of this radiation than do adults’ heads. Foster & Chou produced a scientific review paper in which they claim that the research does not show children absorbing more radiation.

A new analysis has shown their paper to be blatantly biased in its representation of the studies reviewed. We sincerely invite you to watch a short video (https://youtu.be/J5MMhm70lCY) featuring Dr Robert Morris, one of the scientists calling for this paper’s retraction, and see for yourself the obvious and clear bias of Foster & Chou in misrepresenting the scientific findings of the studies they quote. The findings are summarised in the table below, which shows a systematic error in Foster & Chou’s reporting of what the studies actually said; in fact, they completely invert the real findings. This is absolutely inexcusable for a review article. The authors are displaying more than simple bias; they are engaging in sustained and outright academic fraud.

This is far from being an isolated case. There are many studies that are widely quoted in the press regarding mobile phones and health that are known to be deliberately biased. The most notorious is the so-called Danish Cohort Study, which used data from the Danish Cancer Registry. The epidemiologist George Carlo, who was hired by the US wireless industry to research health risks, has revealed how these Danish researchers approached him for funding, openly saying that they could produce results that were favourable to industry. Carlo, who is also a lawyer, rejected their offer of rigged findings.

These researchers then obtained funding from the Danish telecoms industry and duly produced an oft-quoted study that found no association between cancer and mobile phone use for over 400,000 Danes. The sheer size of the study impressed many journalists, and this study is still often quoted in the media. Yet these researchers openly admit that they took themost-exposed group of mobile phone users – corporate users whose phone bills were paid by their companies – and classified them as “unexposed” to mobile phone radiation.

Correcting for this and other errors, Prof Michael Kundi of the Medical University of Vienna, demonstrated that the Danish study actually showed a clear increase in cancers with mobile phone use. Yet despitecalls from other top researchers to have this study retracted, it is still often quoted in the media as showing that mobile phones are safe.

The authoritative publication Microwave News has demonstrated that nearly all the studies that claim to find that mobile phones are safe were funded by industry; and that the “balance of scientific probabilities” is completely skewed by a host of industry-funded studies that are given undue weight by bodies such as ICNIRP. Studies that do find problems are either completely ignored or else are subjected to minute criticism that is never given to studies that report no health effects.

If a paper does report a clear health hazard, there are immediate calls for it to be replicated, even when this is essentially impossible. In one example, researchers measured the exposure to magnetic fields of pregnant women, and correlated this with asthma rates in their children 13 years later. They found a 250% increase in asthma in children whose mothers had a high exposure during pregnancy. Industry immediately called for a “replication” of this unique experiment, despite the fact that it would take another 13 years to complete and would be conducted in a completely different radiation environment.

As ICNIRP meets to decide the radiation exposure of most of the world, we encourage journalists to look at the reality behind the platitudes about mobile phones, wifi, and telecoms towers being safe. The ICNIRP guidelines are only intended to prevent overheating within a six-minute period. This is totally inadequate for 24-hour exposure from masts and always-on wifi, or for children who talk for hours a day on mobile phones. There are well over ten thousand scientific papers showing a vast range of health problems and biological effects caused by electromagnetic radiation at “non-thermal” levels; and we invite you to investigate the clear evidence that there is direct fraud in the industry-backed research claiming that exposure to this radiation is safe.

Radiation Fries Children, Babies, Fetuses, YOU

23 May 2016 – “www.odwyerpr.com”, by 

A concerned, capacity audience about 60 packed a conference room in New York yesterday to hear about and discuss the dangers of Wi-Fi and other radiation. Biggest victims are children, babies and fetuses.

Camilla Rees, founder of Electromagneticheath.org, based in Iowa, told the Left Forum that the “industrial-strength 5GHz routers commonly found in schools are designed to go through cement, brick and to cover the campus.”

Camilla Rees
Camilla Rees

They’re higher wattage and configured to be able to serve hundreds of users simultaneously, she said. Presentations included one by babysafeproject.org. Its warnings were similar to the ones expressed on the panel about children and babies May 3 in Baltimore featuring Devra Davis and other EMF health advocates.

Left ForumAnother paper on the subject of EMF dangers to babies and children is byBostonParentsPaper.com.
Rees, a graduate of Choate Rosemary Hall, Columbia University and the Georgetown Graduate School of Business Administration, has written a 54-part description of EMF dangers and possible solutions that is the most comprehensive overview of the dangers of EMF.

New York Apartment Dwellers at Risk

New Yorkers and others should pay close attention to Rees since Time Warner, Comcast, Cablevision and other cable suppliers are forcing new 5GHz routers on unsuspecting customers, this writer included.

Apprised of this new danger (radiation pulsing 24/7 billions of times a second), we contacted Time Warner and had them turn off the 5GHz and 2Ghz lights on the router. Other customers of the cable companies should do the same.

A technician came to our home and found high levels of radiation throughout the apartment and particularly near windows. The highest apartments get the most radiation from hundreds of cell towers atop apartment buildings. The New York real estate industry must look into this problem.

The technician immediately shut down Bluetooth on our MacBook and told us to get rid of the landline phone that had a wireless companion. An antenna on the landline part spewed radiation 24/7 and was the same as a wireless phone.

Documentary on israel's PR War in the U.S.Left Forum Blasted Corporate Interests 

The session on dangers of pulsed radiation was loaded with attacks on corporate players and their alleged allies in the government, echoing the theme of the conference, “Rage Rebellion Revolution; Organizing Our Power.” Nearly 5,000 attended the three-day conference at the John Jay Criminal College.

Wi-Fi and computer technology, both with dangerous aspects, permeate school, libraries and public government which have made a huge financial and intellectual commitment to their use and don’t want to walk away from it, panelists said. Doing so would be “biting the corporate hand” that helped finance so much of the technology, they noted.

The more than 130 films and VNRs featured in 36-page catalog distributed at the conference by Media Education Foundation include such titles as Pack of Lies: the Advertising of Tobacco; How Racism Harms White America; Big Bucks, Big Pharma; Rich Media, Poor Democracy; Constructing Public Opinion (How politicians and the media misrepresent the public); The Myth of Liberal Media; Shop ‘Til You Drop, The Crisis of Consumerism; How to Start a Revolution; Fire in the Blood, a Tale of Medicine Monopoly & Malice; Google & the World Brain, the Audacious Attempt to Control Human Knowledge; Agrofuels, Starving People, Fueling Greed; Life in Occupied Palestine; Peace, Propaganda & the Promised Land; Occupation 101 (Israeli-Palestinian Conflict).

MEF, was selling for $20 a DVD titled “The Occupation of the American Mind: Israel’s Public Relations War in the U.S.,” narrated by Roger Waters.

Also offered is the film, “The War Around Us,” by Abdallah Omeish, which tells the story of two journalists who were present during the bombardment of Gaza in 2008-09.

The catalog lists seven items telling the Palestinian side of the conflict but none telling the Israeli side.

Rise in Autism Found

There has been an “explosion in autism” in children in Canada that appears to mirror the explosion in wireless technology, says Jerry Flynn, retired captain in the Canadian Army who supervised its warfare using electromagnetic radiation.

Flynn earlier this month asked for an investigation of government authorities in Canada by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, saying the authorities were “criminally negligent” in failing to remove Wi-Fi and other radiation sources from schools, hospitals, libraries and other public facilities.

In the U.S., he wrote May 22 to Prime Minister Justine Trudeau and members of the Canadian Parliament, the rate of autism in children was one in 25,000.

In 1970, he said, it had climbed to one in 2,500; in 2000, one in 150, in 2004, one in 125, in 2008, one in 88, and in 2013, one in 50 and one in 27 in populated cities.

Quoted are statistics compiled by the Australian ADHD Foundation.

Government Opts Out

Asks Flynn: “Why does no one connect today’s tragic explosion in Autism in children with the comparable explosion in wireless technology? Each and every wireless device emits hazardous ‘low-level, pulsed, non-thermal radio/microwave frequency radiation.’”

He includes cellphones, wireless utility meters, cordless phones, GPS satellites and cellphone towers. They never “shut off,” he said.

“Tragically,” he said, “for all Canadians, the Government of Canada refuses any dialogue whatsoever on pulsed non-thermal wireless radiation, which scientists have long linked to Autism and a host of other neurological diseases, as well as diseases of the central nervous system and immune system.”

Parents fight against mobile phone mast near school

Concerned parents and local residents are protesting against plans to erect a mobile phone mast near a primary school in south Dublin

Parents and locals held a protest on Wednesday. Stop Vodafone Mast at IADT Committee

Vodafone have applied for planning permission to install a mast on the roof of Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT) which is close to Monkstown Educate Together National School in Dublin.

A campaign against the plan has been launched by opposing parents and locals, including folk singer Christy Moore, who say they will “use every legal means possible” to get the mobile phone company to relocate the mast.

The parents’ group claim the mast will put 438 young children, teachers and the wider parent community at risk as the school “falls within the beam of maximum intensity”.

Spokesperson for the group Brian Healy explained: “There is mounting scientific evidence across many countries and agencies with regard to the safe placement of masts away from schools, with countries such as New Zealand, Sweden, Italy, Australia and parts of the US banning them from such areas.

“Questions have been raised whether placing mobile phone towers so close to a school where young children, and indeed their teachers, are continuously present for at least seven hours-a-day, is putting them in potential danger.

“It was once felt that the effects of cigarette smoking and second-hand smoke exposure was inconclusive. The consequences are now well known – too late for many children exposed to second-hand smoke.”

A report from the Department of Environment conducted in 2007 concluded that the majority scientific opinion was that “no adverse short or long-term effects have been demonstrated from exposure to electromagnetic fields at levels below the limits recommended by the International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).”

However the parents say the ICNIRP guidelines are “out of date” and do not cover “long-term low-level exposure to microwaves” which they claim can cause DNA damage potentially leading to cancers; signal pulsing causing or worsening epilepsy; tinnitus and hearing problems; and headaches.

In response to the concerns, a spokesperson for Vodafone Ireland said: “We would like to assure you that we adhere to all planning and regulation guidelines and have followed due process in relation to Monkstown Educate Together National School at all stages of the planning process, including consultation with the school.

“Dun Laoghaire Rathdown initially granted the planning application and we will continue to work closely with the authorities in relation to the site.

“The need for the mast came about because of an increase in demand, both from local businesses and new housing developments.

“An increase in coverage was found to be needed to ensure that all local customers could access the services they rely on.”

The parents’ group have submitted an appeal to An Bord Pleanála over planning permission for the mast, and are calling on the government to strengthen existing legislation.
