DANGER: Martin Kingsbury wants Wifi in schools to be banned
DANGER: Martin Kingsbury wants Wifi in schools to be banned

A BUSINESSMAN is on a mission to make people aware of an invisible health danger.

Martin Kingsbury, from Braintree, wants Wifi to be banned in schools up and down the country, to prevent harm being caused by electromagnetic radiation.

He said: “Someone came to me three years ago and told me about it. At first I thought it was another scare story.

“Then I spent a bit of time and did a bit of research. I started to see things that could not be disputed.

“The man made radiation has increased hundreds of times in the last thirty years.”

Many claim that exposure to electromagnetic radiation can cause people to develop Electro-Hypersensitivity – symptoms can include dizziness, headaches and sleep disturbance.

Mr Kingsbury, who owns Solar Power GB Ltd, is a member of Geovital Academy UK and got involved with the worldwide No Wifi in Schools campaign on July 31 by distributing posters across the district.

Countries such as Israel and France have already introduced Wi-Fi bands around children of a young age and Mr Kingsbury wants to see the UK government take a strong stance against electromagnetic radiation.

Mr Kingsbury said: “The problem is no one knows the information is out there.

“People need to be aware of the problems and then it is up to them what they do. But at least then they are given the opportunity to make small changes.

“I would like to see all Wifi to be removed from schools and people made aware of the harmful effects from modern technology – for people with children it is so important.”

LOCANDINE INFORMATIVE “Dai voce al tuo cervello!”

Agosto 2016 – “Comitato Lecce Via Cavo”, Lecce

ElettrosensibiliImportante PATROCINIO della FEDERAZIONE ITALIANA MEDICI PEDIATRI (FIMP), Sezione di Lecce, per la campagna informativa sui POSSIBILI DANNI ALLA SALUTE LEGATI ALL’USO DI CELLULARI, CORDLESS, TABLET, WIFI.

Prevista la massima diffusione delle LOCANDINE INFORMATIVE attraverso l’affissione negli AMBULATORI PEDIATRICI presenti sul territorio.

L’iniziativa nasce dalla collaborazione tra COMITATO “LECCE VIA CAVO”, CODACONS, CODICI, CSV SALENTO e ASSOCIAZIONE ITALIANA ELETTROSENSIBILI ed a Giugno 2016 aveva già avuto il patrocinio anche dell’ ORDINE DEI FARMACISTI della Provincia di Lecce, con diffusione nelle farmacie, studi medici ed esercizi commerciali.

La locandina suggerisce alcuni COMPORTAMENTI PER RIDURRE LA PROPRIA ESPOSIZIONE ALLE RADIOFREQUENZE, tra cui: evitare lunghe chiamate con il cellulare, spegnere il wifi quando non è in uso (specie la notte), usare linee cablate a casa o sul lavoro;
PARTICOLARE ATTENZIONE ALLA PROTEZIONE DEI BAMBINI, che sono più vulnerabili: consigliato RIDURRE la loro esposizione alle radiazioni wireless (CELLULARI, CORDLESS, TABLET, WIFI) e PROMUOVERE RETI CABLATE NELLE SCUOLE al posto delle antenne wifi.

Sulla locandina campeggia la scritta “Dai voce al tuo cervello”, slogan scelto dopo che le radiofrequenze utilizzate dalla tecnologia senza fili sono state classificate nel 2011, dall’Agenzia Internazionale per la Ricerca sul Cancro (IARC) dell’Organizzazione Mondiale per la Salute (OMS), come “possibile cancerogeno per l’uomo”.
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.

An urgent message for all humanity: electromagnetic radiation is damaging our babies, brains, bodies and planet

by Olga Sheean

The following letter (sent to the Mayor of Vancouver, Gregor Robertson, and the Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, on 15 June 2016) has generated an overwhelming response from people all over the world. Many of them have electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), but some of them are discovering this information for the first time and are alarmed by how much it has been distorted, downplayed and denied by those elected to protect our well-being. They have shared their own personal stories and some of them have also written to Robertson, as well as their own elected officials, expressing their concerns and calling for this issue to be urgently addressed.

The letter has gone viral, reaching thousands of people. It has been shared on social media, distributed on various networks, sent out in newsletters and its content re-purposed for other cities.

The information contained in this document applies to most developed countries, since Wi-Fi, cell phones and cordless phones are everywhere, saturating our environment with rapidly rising levels of radiation that’s affecting more and more people every day. I encourage you to share it as widely as you can, even if you are not personally (or knowingly) affected.

The more people I speak to about this, the more I (and they) realize that we’re all affected, in some way—some so severely that they can no longer function normally. I receive letters every day from those who are desperate for a solution and a safe place to live. I hear horror stories—a teenager committing suicide because she’s been forced to sit beside a Wi-Fi router at school, even though it makes her seriously ill; adults who have taken their own lives because there is nowhere for them to lead a normal life; and a 10-year-old boy who can no longer go to school as the Wi-Fi causes blinding headaches and makes him vomit. (For a list of symptoms of electromagnetic intolerance, see page 13.)

As much as 50% of the population in many developed countries will be affected by electromagnetic radiation by 2017.

The questions on pages 20 & 21 raise some key issues that politicians, decision-makers and Internet service-providers have an obligation to answer—but will be unable to, since the proliferation of electromagnetic radiation is now so vast and is escalating so rapidly that there is no way to measure, monitor or contain it.

As of 3 July 2016, I had not yet received a reply from Robertson or Trudeau, but I will be following up with them personally, sharing the many stories and messages I’ve received and alerting them to the growing public awareness of what’s really going on. Change will come as a result of your involvement. There is a tipping point for everything—your tolerance for the rising radiation, as well as the pressure we can collectively bring to bear on those tasked to protect our health, safety, human rights and natural environment.

We’re all in this together.

Rapport de l’ANSES sur l’exposition aux radiofréquences et santé des enfants : il faut mieux protéger les enfants

[L’agenzia Nazionale Francese  per la Salute (Anses – Agence nationale de sécurité sanitaire de l’alimentation, de l’environnement et du travail) ha recentemente pubblicato un rapporto chiarissimo sui rischi derivanti dalla esposizione ai Campi Elettromagnetici e dall’uso delle tecnologie Wireless (senza fili) soprattutto per i bambini, sottolineando dunque la necessità di proteggerli limitando la loro esposizione e dissuadendoli dall’usare cellulari, tablet e altri dispositivi Wireless.]

Communiqué de presse du 8 juillet 2016

Rapport de l’ANSES sur l’exposition aux radiofréquences et santé des enfants : il faut mieux protéger les enfants

A l’issue d’un long travail d’expertise l’Agence conclut qu’il faut mieux protéger les enfants des rayonnements de toutes les technologies sans fil ainsi que des effets liés à l’usage des outils numériques sans fil.

Pour l’ANSES, mieux protéger les enfants signifie :

–         Limiter l’exposition des enfants aux champs électromagnétiques ;

–         Dissuader l’usage par les enfants de l’ensemble des dispositifs de communication mobile.

L’ANSES met en évidence l’inadéquation des normes réglementaires actuelles pour satisfaire à cette nécessaire protection et elle propose ainsi de reconsidérer les valeurs limites d’exposition réglementaires et les indicateurs d’exposition dont le DAS (débit d’absorption spécifique).

Priartem considère que ces recommandations vont dans le bon sens ; que l’Agence a pris ses responsabilités d’Agence sanitaire en les formulant et qu’il reste maintenant aux autorités politiques à les mettre en œuvre le plus rapidement possible.

En ce sens Priartem va s’appuyer sur ces conclusions pour demander une réévaluation du processus normatif et surtout des mesures concrètes de protection des enfants. L’association va ainsi saisir à nouveau le ministère de l’Education Nationale pour un arrêt du plan numérique à l’école. En effet, tel qu’il est aujourd’hui lancé, ce plan se traduit par un déploiement massif de tablettes en WiFi dans les classes y compris dans les maternelles.

Priartem rappelle que partout où c’est possible les connexions filaires doivent être privilégiées, les appareils « sans fil » devant être réservés aux situations de mobilité.

Plus que jamais nous devons demander un grand débat public sur le développement numérique dont nous avons besoin au lieu de nous laisser imposer de plus en plus de gadgets connectés. Ceci est d’autant plus crucial que la jeune génération est celle qui aura été la plus exposée et ce, dès le plus jeune âge. Nous ne pouvons pas nous permettre d’avoir des regrets dans 20 ans, il sera trop tard.

Bambino disturbato dalle lavagne hi-tech…

[Purtroppo il titolo dell’articolo ed anche il suo corpo contengono un piccolo errore riguardo alla tipologia di schermatura eseguita, forse per la scarsa conoscenza della materia. Però è certamente degno di nota il fatto che si sia tenuto conto delle esigenze di un bambino Elettrosensibile, consentendogli di continuare a frequentare le lezioni con i compagni.

Complimenti a chi si è adoperato a tal fine.]

Bambino disturbato dalle lavagne hi-tech il sindaco gli insonorizza l’aula

IL CASO/A CAVENAGO BRIANZA, IL PICCOLO È NON UDENTE

GABRIELE CEREDA

IL MAL di testa era così insopportabile che non riusciva più a mettere piede in classe e quelle poche volte in cui era presente gli impulsi elettromagnetici delle lavagne elettroniche finivano per mandarlo al tappeto. Impossibile seguire le lezioni per un bambino di 10 anni della scuola elementare Ada Negri, di Cavenago Brianza. Il suo impianto cocleare, un apparecchio che serve a sostituire le funzioni dell’orecchio stimolando la parte più profonda del cervello, andava sempre in tilt. Spegnere la lavagna elettronica della sua classe non era bastato, le onde di quelle utilizzate nelle altre sezioni attraversavano i muri. Nelle ultime settimane al dolore si era unita la frustrazione per non poter più sedere vicino ai compagni.

Con le speranze ridotte al lumicino, i genitori del piccolo studente si sono rivolti direttamente al sindaco della città brianzola, Francesco Seghi. «Ho subito mosso gli uffici dell’amministrazione per individuare degli esperti che risolvessero la situazione », racconta. Una squadra di specialisti ha completamente schermato l’aula con materiali fonoassorbenti, in grado di diminuire di mille volte il segnale delle onde radio.

«Come ogni amministrazione, di questi tempi siamo costretti a tirare la cinghia, ma volevamo che i lavori venissero eseguiti con la massima serietà. Non potevamo permettere che un ragazzino della nostra comunità rimanesse escluso dalla scuola», spiega il sindaco. L’azienda che ha vinto l’appalto in meno di una settimana ha realizzato l’intervento, costato 6.500 euro.

Dall’inizio della settimana il piccolo studente è potuto tornare sui banchi. Qualche giorno dopo il rientro, accompagnato dai genitori, ha chiesto di poter conoscere Seghi. «Non me lo aspettavo — racconta il sindaco — mi hanno detto che mi voleva incontrare e quando ci siamo visti, come un vero uomo, mi ha voluto stringere la mano per ringraziarmi».

‘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.
