El conjunto de evidencias científicas sobre los campos electromagnéticos requiere un nuevo enfoque para la protección de la salud pública; el crecimiento y desarrollo del feto, y de los niños; y aboga por fuertes acciones preventivas. Estas conclusiones se basan en previos científicos y de salud pública que documentan lo siguiente:

Efectos biológicos (no térmicos) por baja intensidad y efectos adversos para la salud están demostrados en niveles significativamente inferiores a los estándares de exposición existentes.
Los límites de seguridad pública de la ICNIRP (Comisión Internacional para la Protección frente a las Radiaciones No Ionizantes , del IEEE (Instituto de Ingeniería Eléctrica y Electrónica) , y de la FCC (Comisión Federal de Comunicaciones) son inadecuados y obsoletos con respecto a la exposición prolongada de baja intensidad.
Se necesitan con urgencia nuevas normas de exposición pública con base biológica, para proteger la salud pública en todo el mundo.
No es de interés público más demoras.
“En mi presentación voy a hacer alusión a los antecedentes históricos de la electricidad y los campos electromagnéticos, cómo surgió la sospecha temprana de que tales campos (electromagnéticos) y señales podrían tener efectos negativos en la salud, y cómo llevarlo hoy en día a la discusión pública en todo el mundo. También voy a referirme a la electrohipersensibilidad como deterioro funcional, y qué leyes y reglamentos nos guían en relación con dicha discapacidad. Voy a entrar en más profundidad acerca de los resultados de las investigaciones científicas sobre los efectos adversos para la salud de los campos electromagnéticos, y la necesidad urgente de proyectos de investigación totalmente independientes que se inicien de inmediato para garantizar la salud pública.

Estos proyectos deben ser totalmente independientes de todo tipo de intereses comerciales; la salud pública no puede tener un precio etiquetado (precio o valor en una etiqueta) .También es de suma importancia que los científicos involucrados en este tipo de proyectos estén libres de cualquier conflicto de intereses y que los fondos necesarios se cubran al 100%, no en un 99% ó menos. Esta es la clara responsabilidad del órgano democráticamente elegido de todos los países”.

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.

Parents fight against mobile phone mast near school

11 May 2016 – “UTV Ireland”, by the Staff in Dublin

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

Parents protest.
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.”

https://youtu.be/QhHSCs_E6lE

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.

Effect the Cell Towers Have Had on My Son

From A California Mother in the USA received July 2015

My son developed anxiety, OCD, insomnia, irrational fears, various neurological problems, personality changes immediately after the upgrade of an AT&T cell tower next to his school to 4G LTE technology, which was completed in June 2013.  I didn’t even know there were cell towers next to his school until March 2015 because these cell towers were camouflaged as ball field light poles. (One was 300 ft away from the school, the other was 600 ft away)

His symptoms suddenly began when he started 4th grade in August 2013.  He suddenly became fearful of fire drills, and they gave him anxiety attacks to the point where he had to be called out of class and into the principal’s office prior to the drills.  He developed severe anxiety and a low threshold for stress.  He couldn’t concentrate on his homework.  He would stare at the instructions and not understand what he was supposed to do – I had to explain instructions to him and I had to help him.  He could only work on homework for 20 minutes at a time before he became extremely frustrated and stressed.  He became extremely forgetful, often forgetting his books and other materials needed for homework.  He suddenly developed OCD and became paranoid about germs.  He developed insomnia and could only sleep for 7-8 hours a night, whereas before he used to sleep at least 10.  He cried daily over trivial matters, daily life became overwhelming for him, he often asked why he became sick suddenly and why he felt so stressed all the time, and he even began to say life would be better in Heaven because then he would no longer feel so stressed and sick.  I was devastated to hear my son say these things.

He suddenly had behavioral problems, which his teachers never said he had before the 4th grade.  When I had him undergo a psychological evaluation, it determined he had OCD, Anxiety, and ADD – he did not have any of these problems prior to the cell tower upgrade, except possibly for mild ADD that did not present as a problem.  He also suddenly developed constipation, where he used to be regular.  He developed unexplained rashes on the backs of his hands.  His allergies went from mild to severe.  His personality changed.  He changed from being a sweet and thoughtful child to being angry and stressed most of the time who had a hard time functioning in school.  Simple tasks took him twice as long to do – getting ready in the morning took him 1.5 hrs where it used to take him 45 min. He became a different person and I was terrified I was losing him to some mysterious illness.  Fourth grade was a terrible year for him and for us as a family – it took a tremendous amount of effort just to get through each day one day at a time.

His pediatrician ran extensive tests on him and could not find anything wrong physiologically and ruled out any diseases.  We began all kinds of treatments to try to get him back to normal, including neurofeedback, acupuncture, nutritional supplements, herbal medicine.  He began to see many new medical practitioners that he didn’t have before, including pediatric GI specialists, psychologists, psychiatrists, acupuncturists, allergists, and a neurofeedback specialist.  He had at least 2 medical appointments a week!  In March 2014, after 6 months of hard work and thousands of dollars spent on these various therapies, he began to return to normal and he was able to function normally again.  It was also during this time that we instituted a 504 (special ed) for him for the first time.  No one knew what was wrong, and I didn’t make the connection that it was due to the cell towers next to the school until I discovered them in March 2015.

By June 2014 (after 10 months of therapy) he was almost back to himself, and he was functioning normally throughout the 5th grade until April 2015. His OCD was gone, his anxiety levels were down to a manageable level, and his ADD was mild and manageable.  He became a happy, normal child again, and I was grateful to have him back to himself, even though he still needed to continue with his various therapies to keep his symptoms under control.

Then in March 2015 I saw workers working on the ball field light poles – the covers were off, and I saw cell antennas – that’s when I discovered there were cell towers next to the school.  I asked them what they were doing, and they said they were upgrading the T-Mobile tower to 4G LTE.  I was shocked there was a cell tower so close to school (300ft).  So I went to City Hall to investigate, and that’s when I discovered the presence of a second cell tower (AT&T) next to the school at 600 ft, and that it had been upgraded to LTE in June 2013!  That’s when I realized what triggered my son’s sudden anxiety and severe allergy problems in August 2013.

So I bought an RF meter to measure the RF power densities around the school, and I found that they were at a maximum of 0.3uW/cm2 outside.  So I researched to see what kinds of symptoms could be expected at these levels. That’s when I found the 2012 Bioinitiative Report.  At the RF levels measured, it was high enough to increase the risk of leukemia by a factor of 2, increase headaches, insomnia, memory and concentration problems, stress hormones and anxiety, behavioral issues, and rashes according to the 2012 Bioinitiative Report.  When I saw that the symptoms my son had matched what was in the 2012 Bioinitiative Report for the RF power densities measured at his school, that was further confirmation of what triggered my son’s anxiety and severe allergy problems.  That’s when I started taking action.

Within a few days that the second cell tower (T-Mobile) was upgraded to 4G LTE in April 2015, he began showing the same signs again – extreme allergies to he point that he’s developed asthma now (1st time), OCD reappearing, anxiety escalating.  His younger brother who is 6 years old has started to show some similar symptoms that he had not before. His younger brother has been having GI problems, allergies (never had allergies before), and changes in mood (emotions).  As a parent, having seen him go through these changes twice immediately after the cell tower upgrades, I have to do something.  This could not have been a coincidence.  These are just the effects I am seeing on the outside.  What is going on inside of him?  This must be affecting other kids too.  That’s when I started working on setting safer cell tower setbacks from schools – 1500ft, which is the usual recommended standard based on scientific studies.

That’s my story.  Like most people, I had no idea that cell towers could have such a profound effect on one’s health and well-being.  I have a B.S. degree in Chemical and Bio Engineering, and it was hard for me to accept initially that RF radiation could have been the cause of my son’s illness.  However after doing much research on the subject (including Andrew Goldsworthy’s papers) and experiencing what I did firsthand, it was the only rational conclusion.

I hope you will share your stories too if you or a family member has been affected by cell tower radiation.  By publicizing our stories we will bring awareness to this issue and force our government (FCC) to change its outdated regulations on safe levels of RF exposure from 1996.

 

Headaches From A New Phone?

US parent, Summer 2015

I can hardly believe what I am about to tell you.
It’s about me, my daughter and a phone.

I remember the day that we ordered the new cordless DECT phone  in the spring of 2012.  I plugged it in  and  placed it on the desk  next to our family computer.
Soon afterwords  my daughter started complaining of headaches.

I loved that phone.  I could take the handset and go to my neighbor’s pool and the phone still works great.  I thought it was awesome that I could be lounging outside in the trees,  watching my children play in the pool and still be able to receive phone calls even when I was not at my house.  What I didn’t know is that the fact that the phone worked hundreds of feet away  was an example of just how strong the radiation was from  the phone base to the handset.

I myself started to feel sick and I could not understand what was going on.  I felt extremely tired, had headaches  and basically felt like not doing the things I usually did.  brain fog.  I spent hours working on the computer every day right next to that phone base. (FYI  the computer was fully wired).   Before that phone  came into my life  I was one of those high-powered moms who never got sick,  volunteered for everything, baked muffins  did 300 things at night after the kids went to sleep.  A few weeks after we got that phone I would sit in front of the computer like a zombie every night “too tired” to do anything.

If you were sitting at the computer your head would be 5 to 8 inches away from the dect cordless phone base.  According to the manual of the phone  a person’s body should be 8 inches or 20 CM away from the base so you do not get radiation exposures  at thermal levels.  I, of course, did not know this  at the time.
As a busy working mother I  never made the time to go see a doctor that Spring although  to be honest I actually thought that I might have cancer or chronic fatigue syndrome,  I just felt terrible but in a weird way. I am not the type to complain so I never spoke of it. Yet my daughter did.

I  decided to take my daughter to see the pediatrician because her complaints were so unusual and started all of sudden that Spring.
“Do I have to go to school?”
” I’m so tired mom”
“I have a headache mom’
“I can’t do that mom”
” I just don’t feel well mom”

She was learning to type and would come home from school and immediately go to the computer and play typing games.  Her head was inches away from the phone base. She complained at nighttime. She would complain in the morning and she would complain when I picked her up at school.   Previously  she would not complain about much unless she  was coming down with a fever. I knew something was wrong.

The pediatrician spent a significant amount of time asking my daughter questions trying to  see if my daughter was anxious or had any mental problems.   The Dr. did a full physical exam but held off on blood tests stating that “perhaps  my daughter had an issue with school.” “Maybe this will resolve in the summer,  perhaps something is going on at school that we don’t know about”  she said, ” it  also sounds like she needs more sleep and you should get her to sleep earlier.”

” We have a 7:30 bedtime and always have, ”  I said.  I knew that  going to sleep earlier was not going to solve this problem because we already went to bed early enough.   I also knew that my daughter loved school, her friends and  I did not think this was a psychological issue.

Lo and be-hold  summer came and the headaches stopped.  Immediately after the last day of classes our family went camping and then had back-to-back summer trips.  We were only at home but for a few days that summer to pack and unpack for the next trip. The headaches and tiredness went away. ” Maybe it was stress about school?” I thought. “Maybe she was just tired?”

It was over that summer that I learned that wireless devices emitted radiation.  I walked in the house with a radiation meter and saw extremely high radiation levels coming out of that phone base.  I threw out the phone and got a corded plug in  phone and we have not had headaches like that since.  My daughter does not have the intense complaints that she used to have.

I cannot be sure that that phone cause these symptoms but it sure seems to me that there is an association.  Yes we are exposed to wireless everywhere  but to the levels that we were exposed to from that cordless phone were extremely high.  I would often get headaches from my cell phone if I used it for too long and in response I used it minimumly. (I never had an iPhone and I hear they cause worse headaches.)

I had no idea that the cordless phone base  was emitting radiation all the time.  Even when I was not talking on the phone- the base was putting out a high rate of radiation.  I am not only concerned about the biological effects from low levels of this radiation,  but I am also concerned that me and my children were exposed to  thermal (heating) levels  that surpass our US government guidelines.   Why didn’t we know that it stated in the manual that if we were to close to the phone base we could ” exceed FCC regulations”.

Why was I not informed? 

I wish I had known  this when my children were younger.  I am so thankful that I did not keep this phone base by my bed because I know  a family who keep the cordless phone base on the night stand by their bed.  These are the same friends that also take sleeping pills to sleep and are always complaining that they cannot get sleep.  Could it be the phone base?

Here is how I see the situation now.  Yes, me and my children are exposed to wireless everywhere but  when we got that  phone  we were exposed to constant daily intents radiation levels that we had not been exposed to before.  It was the tipping point. It must have overloaded our system. It was constant radiation.

We have since removed all wireless devices from our home.   Yes, we have a phone and yes, we have a computer but they are all wired (no Wi-Fi) and we are perfectly happy.  There is no lack of technology in our home.  (In fact I still think we look at screens too much). With my radiation meter  I can see that the RF levels are at 0 in my home. ZERO. (Not in the thousands as they were before from that phone)

However,  it is becoming increasingly hard  to find fun family places to go where we are not being bombarded by this radiation at levels that many scientists state are completely unacceptable.   When I go outside  to the local rec center or the library my radiation meter shows levels that are far above levels that have shown harm in research studies. Schools are upgrading their wireless networks and using very powerful systems  which is similar  to having that DECT cordless phone base  right near your head.

When I talk to other parents they (just as I was a few years ago) are usually completely unaware that there are any health risks related to wireless.   Yet so very many people have told me ” I get headaches from my cell phone.”  Perhaps a headache is not the end of the world -but the real question that we should be asking is…”Why are we getting these headaches?”  “What else is going on in our brains ?” “How is this radiation impacting our children’s brains?”

The scientific research that I have read shows that this radiation kills brain cells and very specifically damages young brains and interferes with proper brain development.   I do not want my children to have damaged brains because I simply wanted the convenience of a home cordless phone or laptop.

It is hard to believe that I just wrote a story about my family and a phone.   I am so thankful that I learned about this issue and I hope that every person reading it will take some time to look at this issue.   There is a lot of industry spin out there just like there was in the 50s concerning tobacco and of course –lead in paint.  The wireless industry is far more powerful than the tobacco and paint companies.

Just remember, there was no pre-market testing on these devices.  
Nobody checked to be sure that this radiation was safe for our kids. There is no proof of safety and a lot of red flags. If you are skeptical just try reducing the wifi in your home for two weeks and see how you feel. Try it. My and my husband were  shocked at how much better we slept and how we simply felt so much better physically. My energy is back !

My child’s health is nonnegotiable.  I don’t jump off cliffs and I make sure the kids have seatbelts on.

Exposing children to constant daily levels of an untested questionable radiation just makes no sense.

As a parent it is very hard to find time to do anything other then work and take care of my kids.  Howeverthis wireless business just takes the cake.  We have to do something.  I urge every parent and citizen reading this to take one step outside of your comfort zone . We must raise this issue in our community,  with our friends,  at our  schools,  at our local city Council meeting  and with all our elected officials.
Parents need to be informed about wireless radiation.  We have a right to know. 

 

My Children Are Not Guinea Pigs

Letter from a US Mother July 2015

I am basically a mother who uses common sense with her children. When I learned that wireless radiation was not necessarily safe I took the time to read. The more I read the more concerned I became. I began to wonder about how this radiation might be affecting my child who was being exposed every day at school.
There is no question that this radiation permeates bodies. The scientific question of the day seems to be -to what degree it could harm people.

I frankly don’t care. I don’t care if it is proven or not. There is enough research out there to be concerned. It took decades for cigarettes to be proven harmful and they are still legal. I simply do not think my children’s health should be risked. If this radiation is so safe, then why don’t they do a large research study involving children? Oops. They cannot to do such a research study because that would be unethical. Then why are we exposing our children to it in real life when we cannot expose them to this radiation in an experiment?

I do not need to wait for a scientific consensus. I certainly am not going to wait for the government to take action.

I believe that I have a right as a parent to decide what sort of risks I am comfortable taking with my children.
Does this makes sense?

I am working hard to raise this issue in my local school. Please share this with other parents.

 

We are calling for more stories from parents about how the wireless issue has effected their families.

Please send us your story to share by emailing parentsforsafetechnology@gmail.com.

Letter to School Officials About the Threat of Wi-Fi in Schools

17 Aprile 2016 – “Omega News”

Hi Janis

MANY thanks for sending us your outstanding letter to School Officials. I’m translating it in French and have posted your Engish version at http://www.cqlpe.ca/pdf/LetterToSchoolOfficials.pdf and it is now linked at

http://www.cqlpe.ca/#DR

Please note that while checking the source of the following quote (which I could not find in the Convention on the Rights of the Child) …

United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child, the Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989), asserts:that every child should have the opportunity to grow and develop free from preventable illness or injury.”

… I’ve discovered that it comes in fact from the American Academy of Pediatrics. So I’ve amended your letter accordingly to…

The American Academy of Pediatrics asserts:that every child should have the opportunity to grow and develop free from preventable illness or injury.”

http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/99/2/279

According to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989):

Article 3

etc.

Best regards

Jean

PS Un mot à Stephanye: Je vais réviser ta lettre ce soir et te revenir là-dessus sans faute. Merci beaucoup de l’avoir préparée. Et bonne idée de laisser faire le sondage détaillé vu que l’arrivée du Wi-Fi est récente.

Hi all

Sorry I don’t speak french but I have a letter that I haven’t sent out yet and thought if you needed to use any of this information you are welcome to

Janis

Dear School Officials,
Parents have sent School Officials 1,000’s of peer reviewed studies by scientists and medical experts showing the harmful effects of wireless technology associated with long term exposure to microwave radiation such as increased infertility, neurodegenerative disease and cancer. Experts both nationally and internationally continue to call on the Canadian government to implement much stricter exposure standards for radio frequency radiation to mitigate risk, especially for infants and children who are most vulnerable.

Why have School Officials refused to heed the recommendations from the highest level of public health? The World Health Organization (WHO), declared that parents should reduce children’s chronic exposure to RF/MWR where ever possible to mitigate risk for harmful effects, pointing out that any reasonable measure to limit or reduce exposure would be benefit children, fetuses and those with EHS.

According to a report delivered June 18th 2015, by the House of Commons Standing Committee on Health (HESA) the microwave radiation from wireless devices is now a “serious public health issue”.  The Canadian Parliamentary Committee discussed possible links between RF exposure and cancer, reproductive issues and autism. Concerns were raised about RF exposure in schools due to use of Wi-Fi; the need for RF exposure limits to protect vulnerable populations such as pregnant women, infants and children, and persons with electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS)

The International EMF Scientist Appeal, signed by over 200 EMF research scientists, university professors and medical doctors from 40 countries, called upon the United Nations, the WHO, and the UN Member States to address the emerging public health crisis

Health Canada has disregarded or minimized certain recent studies, such as cancer, DNA damage, protein synthesis, stress response, and detrimental biological health effects in humans that occur at radiation levels far below the existing Safety Code 6 Guideline. During the hearings four international experts testified that Health Canada is “either unwilling or not competent” to judge current scientific evidence that wireless radiation is harmful to our health. Health Canada is not protecting the public.

In February 20, 2013, in the Superior Court of Quebec, James McNamee, Health Canada scientist admitted that the Safety Code 6 guidelines for microwave radiation(which includes radiation from devices such as mobile phones, cell phone antennas, Wi-Fi, wireless toys and baby monitors, smart meters etc. is based ONLY on preventing a heating effect!  That is burning of the skin within 6 minutes.

The statement in the Preface of Safety Code 6 (2009) is the following (page 3):

The purpose of this code is to establish safety limits for human exposure to radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic energy in the frequency range from 3 kHz to 300 GHz. The safety limits in this code apply to all individuals working at, or visiting, federally regulated sites. These guidelines may also be adopted by the provinces, industry or other interested parties.

Health Canada’s Safety Code 6 does NOT apply to provinces, industry, or other interested parties.  The provinces have the authority to establish levels far more restrictive than Safety Code 6.

Dr. McNamee finally admitted that the guidelines in question regarding cell towers are based ONLY on preventing a thermal effect and it is now accurate to say that Canada does not have a guideline to protect Canadians from long-term exposure to “non-thermal” levels of microwave radiation! (Dr. Magda Havas)

In February 2015, Lloyds of London officially reiterated its long-held policy to exclude any liability coverage for injuries, “Directly or indirectly arising out of, resulting from, or contributed to by electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic radiation, radio waves or noise.”  (Exclusion 32)  This would include microwave wireless radiation emitted from the commercial grade Wi-Fi transmitters and the multiple wireless devices.

http://www.citizensforsafetechnology.org/Lloyds-of-London-excludes-coverage-for-RFEMR-claims,2,4168

The Ministry of Education has put the onus on the individual School Boards to approve the installation of this wireless technology thus relieving themselves of any liability. It is made very clear in a letter to the BCCPAC dated November 19, 2012, from the Ministry of Education, the Board of Education has the authority to develop policies addressing the use of wireless technology in schools and to implement the appropriate technology where it is deemed necessary to support the education needs of students.

When parents requested ONE peer reviewed study proving ‘wifi was safe for children and the unborn,’ Health Officers were unable to present one.  The Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Kendall has stated in a letter in March 2015, “Nor, as others have suggested do I make statements that such radiation is ‘safe’ “.

Vancouver Island School Medical Officer Dr. Stanwick has stated: Upon review of the evidence, the prevailing position in this province from experts at the federal, provincial and regional levels is that the evidence reveals that “Wi-Fi exposure in schools does not pose a level of risk that is unacceptable.” The other chief medical health officers in the province, Provincial Health Officer, Ministry of Health and other federal and provincial agencies hold this position.

Stating there is in fact a risk.

Why are School Officials refusing Parents, Teachers and Students their RIGHT TO KNOW http://www.c4st.org/PMB about the health risks from this unregulated technology that has never been tested for safety? Safety Manuals and Disclaimers have not been disclosed, for example:

Apple instructs its users: “Read all safety information below and operating instructions before using iPad to avoid injury.”

to be sure that human exposure to RF energy does not exceed the FCC, IC, and European Union guidelines, always follow these instructions and precautions: Orient the device in portrait mode with the Home button at the bottom of the display, or in landscape mode with the cellular antenna (located under the black edge at the top of the device) away from your body or other objects”

A child cannot hold an iPad without being exposed to microwave radiation pulsating every 4 seconds. That’s 900 bursts of radiation in one hour!


The user manual also recommends users (many children): “you can further limit your exposure by limiting the amount of time using iPad Wi-Fi+3G in wireless mode, since time is a factor in how much exposure a person receives, and by placing more distance between your body and iPad Wi-Fi + 3G, since exposure level drops off dramatically with distance.”

Samsung 3G Laptop: “Usage precautions during 3G connection:  Keep safe distance from pregnant woman’s stomach or from lower stomach of teenagers.  Body work operation:  Important safety information regarding radiofrequency radiation (RF) exposure.  To ensure compliance with RF exposure guidelines the Notebook PC must be used with a minimum of 20.8 cm (8 Inches) antenna separation from the body.”

Apple “iPhone’s SAR measurement may exceed the FCC exposure guidelines for body-worn operation if positioned less than 15 mm (5/8th inch) from the body. When using iPhone near your body for voice calls or for wireless data transmission over a cellular network, keep iPhone at least 15 mm (5/8th inch) away from the body, and only use carrying cases, belt clips or holsters that do not have metal parts and that maintain at least 15 mm (5/8th inch) separation between iPhone and the body

Why are teachers being forced to claim disability or early retirement, parents having to take their children out of school for home schooling and others forced in frustration to give up their parental right to protect their children?  Why is it no amount of evidence, peer reviewed studies, presentations by scientists and medical experts fail to make School Officials understand this mandatory exposure to microwave radiation causes permanent and irreversible damage?

Parents want to know why are School Officials willfully turning a deaf ear to the voices of our children who are suffering from this RF exposure?

Excessive Radiation Is Emergency Situation

16 April 2016 – “www.odwyerpr.com”, by 

Hospital emergency entranceThe electromagnetic radiation bombarding adults and children has reached excessive levels. But governments, media and even hospitals are deaf to this emergency, afraid to take on giants like Google, Apple, Microsoft, AT&T, etc. EMR health advocates will have their ownthree-day conference April 19-21.

Wired Health Now 2016Latest examples of pig-headedness on this are Children’s hospital of Alabama, which has plenty of advice about snake bites, bike riding and lightning, but nothing on EMR, and the Federal Communications Commission, which is allowing Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel to speak at a the Wi-Fi Now 2016 conference April 19-21 in Tysons Corner, Va., which haswithdrawn a press pass to the O’Dwyer Co.

No one from the hospital or the FCC is responding to phone calls or emails. They are in lockdown. A more apt description with the hospital is that it is choking on its own bad policy related to the dangers of EMR, which particularly impact children.

Rosenworcel Likes 5G

Project CensoredCommissioner Rosenworcel is a big fan of spreading the new and more dangerous 5G (fifth generation) of Wi-Fi as far as possible to as many children as possible.

What must be done immediately is to warn children and others to keep cellphones at least three feet away from head and body; never carry one in a pocket; switch cordless phones for landlines; turn off Bluetooth, and don’t use a cellphone in a car or other vehicle and especially a moving vehicle.

Powerful, industrial-level routers must be removed from classrooms, libraries and any public place like airline terminals, doctors’ offices and reception areas of any type.

Office workers in New York and elsewhere often work near powerful Wi-Fi transmitters and wonder why they have muddled thinking, fatigue, ringing in their ears, strange sensations in their heads and many other symptoms. A technician should be retained to measure the radiation levels.

High Apts. Are Most at Risk

Especially at risk are New Yorkers and others who live in apartment buildings. The highest apartments are most at risk because, if occupants of such apartments will look out the window, they will see white posts atop the buildings around them that are transmitting cellphone messages of occupants.

A technician who came to our apartment on the 21st floor in midtown found 10,000 microwatts per square meter of radiation pouring into the apartment through our windows. Bioscience and other EMF “police” recommend 100 microwatts.

The technician, using a Gigahertz Solutions HFE59B Radio Frequency Analyzer, found this dipped to 1,150 in the bathroom. The bedroom was only 3,370 but that is still very high.

Best place for us to sleep is in the bathtub!

We then purchased an Acoustimeter for $350 which measures volts per meter as well as microwatts per meter. Our measurements tracked with those reported by the technician, who was using a more sophisticated device costing around $1,000

A casualty of the Wi-Fi blitz is the PR industry, whose functionaries have become wind-up dolls, heavily programmed to spout the industry line. Either that or they don’t talk at all. Virtually all contact between PR and press is recorded and monitored by lawyers. Corporate people don’t respond because they are inarticulate.

But highly articulate are the foes to EMR and they will have three days to speak next week at the “Wired Health Now 2016” being hosted on the O’Dwyer website.

“HOW WE ARE KILLING OURSELVES – THE DANGER OF WIRELESS RADIATION”

13 April 2016 – from a post of Dafna Tachover on her Facebook page

“HOW WE ARE KILLING OURSELVES – THE DANGER OF WIRELESS RADIATION”

An excellent 30 minutes documentary from Israel about the epidemic of Electro-Sensitivity. It was aired last night in prime time with 22% rating! It was supposed to be 10 minutes on ES as part of another film but eventually as they understood the extent of the problem and how important it is to warn the public, they decided to do a 30 minutes documentary only on ES. They explained that at least 800,000 people in Israel, i.e. 10% already suffer from different levels of ES and likely the rates are higher. The gov rep, the 2 clowns who lied to the Israeli Supreme Court admitted that the thermal safety standard is irrelevant…opposite to what they told the Supreme Court. Most importantly, this movie created a lot of buzz, undoubted ES and was another strong warning that radiation harms are not potential but exsting, an in a scale of epidemic. Many participated from Israel and from the US including Jennifer Wood whose testimony is very powerful and Prof. David Carpenter. They also mentioned the tragic story of Jenny Fry, the 15 Y/O from England who committed suicide because of the Wi-Fi in school. Hope to be able to get their permission to put subtitles.

“COME STIAMO UCCIDENDO NOI STESSI – I PERICOLI DELLA RADIAZIONE WIRELESS”

Un ottimo documentario di 30 minuti da Israele riguardo all’epidemia di Elettrosensibilità (ES). E ‘stato mandato in onda ieri sera in prima serata con uno share del 22%! La parte sulla ES doveva durare 10 minuti come parte di un altro filmato, ma alla fine, poiché è stata capita l’entità del problema e quanto sia importante mettere in guardia l’opinione pubblica, hanno deciso di fare un documentario di 30 minuti solo sulla ES. Hanno spiegato che almeno 800.000 persone in Israele, vale a dire il 10%, già soffrono a diversi livelli di ES e probabilmente i tassi sono anche più alti. I rappresentanti governativi, i 2 clown che avevano mentito alla Corte Suprema israeliana, hanno ammesso che gli standard di sicurezza basati su criteri termici sono inappropriati… l’opposto di quello che avevano detto alla Corte Suprema. Ancora più importante, questo filmato ha creato un sacco di brusio, ha fatto uscire dal dubbio la ES ed è stato un altro forte avvertimento che i danni da radiazioni non sono potenziali, ma esistenti, e in una scala di epidemia. Molti hanno partecipato da Israele e dagli Stati Uniti tra cui Jennifer Wood, la cui testimonianza è molto potente, e il Prof. David Carpenter. Hanno inoltre menzionato la tragica storia di Jenny Fry, la quindicenne dall’Inghilterra che si è suicidata a causa del Wi-Fi a scuola. Spero di essere in grado di ottenere il loro permesso di mettere i sottotitoli.

Jimmy Gonzalez 1972-2014: *Cell Phones Cause Cancer*

[VIDEO – Per non dimenticare.

Ucciso dal suo cellulare all’età di 42 anni. 

Il procuratore Jimmy Gonzalez, ex Marine, così nel 2012 affrontava il suo consiglio comunale per mettere in guardia circa i pericoli correlati all’uso dei telefoni cellulari.

Due anni più tardi, soccombeva ad un glioblastoma multiforme (una forma di tumore al cervello) al quarto stadio originato vicino al suo orecchio sinistro, lato dal quale teneva il suo telefono cellulare durante le conversazioni.
Ha inoltre sviluppato un tumore al cuore, vicino al taschino dei vestiti dove soleva tenere il cellulare, e anche un tumore del nervo sul palmo della mano con la quale reggeva il telefono.]

14 April 2016 – “www.buergerwelle.de”

Attorney Jimmy Gonzalez, a former Marine here addresses his city council in 2012 to warn about the dangers of cellphones.

Two years later, he succumbed to a Stage Four glioblastoma multiform brain cancer next to his left ear, where he used his cell phone. He also developed a tumor in his heart, next to where he kept his cellphone in his suit pocket, as well as a nerve tumor on the palm of his
hand, from which he held his phone.

This father of two young children was killed by his cellphone at age 42.

ABSTRACT

Concerns have been raised about the possible biological effects of nonionizing radiation since at least the late 1950s with respect to radar, other radio, and microwave sources. More recent concerns have arisen about the potential effects of low-intensity fields, including lowfrequency fields from the electric power generating, transmission, and distribution system and the devices it energizes, as well as intermediate, radio-frequency (RF), and higher-frequency radiation from devices such as cell phones, broadcast antennas, Wi-Fi, security monitors, and so forth. These are concerns about the direct effects of radiation on humans or other organisms. They are distinct from the electromagnetic compatibility issues that concern interference by the fields from one device with the function of another, though human health can be indirectly affected by electromagnetic interference with the function of medical devices, including hospital equipment or pacemakers.
