MP says Canadians unaware of health risks posed by cell phones

Conservative MP Terence Young says Canadians are not fully aware of what he says are serious health concerns resulting from cell phone and wireless router use, especially to children. Young's Private Member's Bill will seek to place safety warnings on Cell phones and Wifi routers sold in Canada.

 
 
 
 
 
Subject: Bill C-648
Message:
Dear Mr. Young
Thank you for your efforts to see wireless devices used more safely.
I suffer badly from exposure to wireless radiation and I am in touch with many people around the world who also have been made ill by this invisible toxin.
I have contacted several MPs over the last few years but none have taken the trouble to bring the issue forward.
On behalf of many people who may not be able to contact you, we appreciate everything that you have done to bring Bill C-648 to Parliament.
If I can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact me.
Sincerely
Martin Weatherall
Co Director WEEP

If you would like to send a message of thanks and support to MP Terrance Young, here is the address - http://terenceyoung.com/terencemail.php

Thousands of smart meters in Ontario to be removed over safety worries

Some 5,400 of Ontario's 4.8 million smart meters are being removed and replaced because of a risk they could heat up, cause an electrical short and possibly spark a fire

 
 
 

Thousands of smart meters ordered removed in Ontario

David Collie, president and CEO of the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA), said their experts found similarities between the structure of 5,400 Sensus Generation 3.2 remote disconnect meters installed in Ontario and a similar model used in Saskatchewan that was implicated in a number of fires.
 
 
 
 

Two-thirds of the 5,400 smart meters being replaced are Bluewater Power's

It appears Sarnia's utility provider will be hardest hit by Ontario's decision to remove thousands of smart meters over fears they could cause fires.
Of the 5,400 Sensus Generation 3.2 remote disconnect meters earmarked for removal by March 31, nearly two-thirds are under Bluewater Power's purview.

"I have not run into one person in this community that has said to me the smart meter has made a difference in their electrical use or their habits," he said. (Mayor)

EESC EHS Opinion - plenary vote January 2015

The Section for Transport, Energy, Infrastructure and the Information Society (TEN) of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) has now produced it's final draft opinion that we reported on recently. It would have represented a giant step forward in the recognition of electromagnetic hypersensitivity and the need in society to dramatically alter our approach to supporting sufferers of the condition. However today, the 21st January 2015, a Counter-Opinion was proposed and voted on before the EHS Opinion and the Counter Opinion was passed by plenary vote. That means that the good TEN 559 EHS Opinion was dismissed.

Former Fort Mill resident looks to raise awareness of electromagnetic fields

It was Dallas where Sturdivant got her diagnosis of electromagnetic field sensitivity.

"I had swollen really big, like a monster," she said. "I'm better now, but I really went through it."

The disorder is a disruption of the body's natural electric functions. Symptoms are myriad. So too are triggers. Nick Callas, a Columbia attorney who won Sturdivant her disability status, recalls the client who couldn't consult with him if lights or his computer stayed on during the meeting.

Milpitas school board studies effects of three cell towers in district

Parents have started a petition on change.org asking the district to not renew the contract because a "wide range of negative health effects are manifested on people who live near cell towers, however, study after study has shown that children are much more vulnerable than adults due to their developing brain and thinner skulls. This puts them at an increased risk for a wide range of health problems including leukemia, headaches, behavioral problems and DNA damage."

School board declines cell tower lease

After an often-emotional public comment session — and with three school officials facing a subpoena to testify today (Thursday, Jan. 15) in a related Virginia Freedom of Information Act (VFOIA) case filed by Sperryville resident Eric Tollefson — the board declined to pursue the deal.

IARC Dismiss Cancer and Bad Luck Theory

The World Health Organisation's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) have come forward in anger against the paper "Variation in cancer risk among tissues can be explained by the number of stem cell divisions" released last month in the Journal 'Science', unscientifically stating that the majority of cancer is due to "bad luck". The published research claimed that environmental factors and genetic predispositions explain about one-third of cancers and that two thirds of cancers are due to "bad luck" caused by random mutations arising during DNA replication and the more replications that occur in tissue the higher the chance of developing cancer there. It is disappointing that peer-review by a historically good journal (Science) allowed this statement in the paper's Abstract; however the journal has been defending this in subsequent editorials. The publication by 'Science' resulted in the story being run non-critically as a major item even on the BBC News.

Yesterday, Forbes Magazine let the cat out the bag: studies indicate that wireless radiation is way more harmful than we thought, especially for children.

Today, industry damage-control agents appear to have undertaken a "re-education campaign" upon Forbes, to have the article edited.

Smart meters, another botched program on Ontario's long list of power boondoggles
 
A government that has thoroughly botched the energy file since the day it took office more than 11 years ago.
 
Not only are they a failure, but the roll-out was a comedy act, with one bungle after another. The benefits, estimated at $600 million over 15 years, were off by about $510 million (or 85%).

Google Glass 'addict' wore device for 18 hours a day

Over the course of his 35-day treatment the report claims he became "extremely irritable and argumentative" once he was parted from the device.

Doctors also said his symptoms reduced over time.  They noted he became less irritated and showed "improvements in his short-term memory and clarity of thought processes."

First two cell towers rejected under new Langley Township policy

The new municipal "telecommunication tower policy" requires an 80 per cent "yes" vote from people living near any proposed new cell phone antenna installation.

Under the new rules, cellphone companies have to poll residents within a 500 metre radius of a proposed tower.

Smart Meters Have Failed
 
Having reached the end of 2014, there is no doubt it has been a devastating year for utility smart meters and smart grid advocates.  Whether all utility executives yet realize it or not, smart meters have failed.  They have failed miserably to the deliver the promised benefits.

We must recognize that Wireless and Health Problems are Linked

I began experiencing adverse health symptoms (that I never had before) immediately after installation of a water "smart meter." My symptoms included: headache (rapid vibration of temple veins); painful eye, and "prickling" nasal sensations; body temperature and blood pressure increases; shortness of breath; nausea and dizziness; fluctuating heartbeat; and ultimately, a seizure causing loss of control of my legs.

Smartphones cause drooping jowls and 'tech-neck' wrinkles in 18-39 year-olds

"The problem of wrinkles and sagging of the jowls and neck used to begin in late middle age but, in the last 10 years, because of 'tech neck', it has become a problem for a generation of younger women," said Dr Christopher Rowland Payne, a consultant dermatologist at The London Clinic.

He shows that with more than 10 years of cellphone use, positive results were obtained with industry funded and governmental studies. He reveals some shocking results from studies carried out adults and children, adults show a 50% higher risk of contracting brain cancer, whereas amongst the children it was an unbelievable 420%. According to these studies cordless phones are as unhealthy as cellular phones.
