Global Union Against Radiation Deployment from Space (GUARDS)
 

Five companies are gearing up to provide high-speed global WiFi coverage from space within the next three to four years. This would be an ecological and public health nightmare, according to a recently-formed international coalition: the Global Union Against Radiation Deployment from Space (GUARDS).

LOS ANGELES SUPERVISORS STOP CONSTRUCTION OF CELL TOWERS AT FIRE STATIONS

"This is stupid, and again the point is how we got this far is irresponsible," Supervisor Michael Antonovich said.

Supervisors approved a motion to stop construction at fire stations and study the issue further. They will also request the Department of Commerce to approve an extension to be able to get federal money in the future.
 
 
 
 
County Supervisors unanimously halt construction of toxic cell towers
 
Thank you for all of your hard work and support over the past weeks as we have demanded a voice in our own health and safety at our fire stations and an end to sneaky back room deals. Together, we have won an important battle, but the war is not over. We will keep you all apprised of ongoing developments.
 
 
 
Many thanks to all the persons who have worked with firefighters over the last ten years to show them the dangers of cell phone masts etc..

Rajasthan government today said that it will carry out a research on the alleged ill effects on public health by radiations emitted by mobile telephones

Health Minister Rathore said that as per the research by Jawhar Lal Nehru University scientists, people living in the 300 metres radius of mobile towers showed headache, skin, eye and cancer diseases.

Cell Tower Opposition Mounts

The Scrantons sent information to the Grizzly that outlined research relating to the health effects of radio frequency, electromagnetic frequency radiation and microwave radiation in relation to cell towers. The document states that some of the dangers include cancer, memory disruptions, insomnia, genetic mutations, brain disorders and more.

Hi Andre,

The following is an excerpt from the document I submitted in June 2013 to the

World Health Organization Call for Examples of Good Risk Management Practices.

People's Republic of China

In the WHO's EMF database for the People's Republic of China there is a review by Cao (2007) documenting the findings of general EMF-related health research in China from 1994 to 2006.

From the total of 383 Chinese papers investigating EMF biological effects in the China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) databank (this figure excludes papers investigating: EMF medical treatment; EMF prevention; EMF regulation, environmental EMF exposure assessment; and restricted People's Liberation Army research papers on the topic), it is stated that there were 109 epidemiological studies. 108 of these noted biological effects as a result of exposure.

In the epidemiological studies reviewed, 32 were for exposure levels higher than EMF exposure limits for members of the general public in China. The other 77 papers were for exposure levels lower than public exposure limits in China. Details of these exposure limits provided by Chiang (2009) are given below (Table 1).

 

Table 1: General Public Exposure Limits to RF/microwave radiation in China

Frequency

1st class exposure limits

2nd class exposure limits

0.1-30 MHz

10 V/m

25 V/m

>30-300 MHz

5 V/m

12 V/m

>0.3-300 GHz

10 μW/cm2

40 μW/cm2

Source: Chiang (2009).

1st class exposure limits: Exposures below these levels thought to be safe for permanent exposure and all people (including infants, pregnant mothers, patients, older people, etc.).

2nd class exposure limits: Exposures below these levels acceptable for short-term exposures (factories, parks, recreation spaces, etc.). Living quarters, hospitals, schools, kindergartens, etc., not allowed to receive such exposures.


Health effects for the 108 epidemiological studies that reported effects included: abnormal ECG; disorder of immunoglobulin; miscarriage; neurasthenia; poor sleep quality; and sperm dysfunction. Quoting Cao (2007): "No matter what the exposure level may be, lower or higher than [the Chinese] EMF exposure limits for public, health effects had been reported in these papers. ..."

Actual exposure levels for the general public in China are well below the rigorous Chinese General Public Exposure Limits. Chiang (2009) remarked that in 3 Chinese cities assessed around 1% of the urban population was exposed to levels >1V/m or 2 μW/cm2, and that "Only a very small percentage may be exposed to levels comparable to the [Chinese] limits (in most cases for short time only)." ...

Mobile phone radiation causes brain tumors and should be classified as a probable human carcinogen (2A) (Review)

If exposures to DECT phones could have been taken into account, the risks of glioma from mobile phone use in CERENAT are likely to be higher than published. We conclude that radiofrequency fields should be classified as a Group 2A ̔probable̓ human carcinogen under the criteria used by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (Lyon, France).

It appeared that many industry funded researchers did not notice that the data they provided in their research indicated that the cause of the accidents was not primarily driver distraction but something much more profoundly disturbing. The evidence from the Redelmeier Study as well as subsequent studies have shown that RFR emitted from cellphones was inhibiting brain function and possibly causing car accidents.(

Di Morrison and Ron Krieger had retired to their dream home on Hammond Drive. With the magnificent views of Mt Warning and its caldera as a constant backdrop their days centered on gardening and surfing. That was until the arrival of the phone tower. They share a common fence line and, as of now, they live directly under a phone tower.

Science Fair Project Winner Do Cell Phones Inhibit Growth?

 Lucas Brenninkmeijer is a grade 7 student at Oakville Christian School who recently tied for first place in their Science Fair competition. In his project , Do Cell Phones Inhibit Growth?,

 Lucas conducted an experiment to determine what would happen to the growth of seeds if they were exposed to a cell phone. The experiment compared the growth of seeds on a tray with a cell phone in the middle and on a tray without a phone. The results of the experiment consistently showed that the seeds grown on the tray with the cell phone were shorter and less dense than the seeds grown on the tray with no phone.

 Lucas will be going to the Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair (BASEF) in Hamilton in March to present his project.

The Editor, New York Times
 
Dear Editor
 
The article by George Johnson (March 23 NYT) is not worthy of publication in any newspaper as it is not factual.
 
Johnson stated in his article "The electromagnetic signals that go from cellphone to cellphone and computer to computer lie quietly on the spectrum between radio broadcast waves and the colors of light. From the perspective of science, the likelihood of the rays somehow causing harm is about as strong as the evidence for ESP".
 
He has clearly failed to do any research on the topic or he would have known that there are thousands of scientific papers which show that wireless microwave radiation causes many very serious adverse health effects including several different cancers, immune problems, sleeping difficulties and depression etc.  Those signals do not lie quietly as suggested, they cause horrible adverse reactions in some people and affect their lives in many unkind ways.  They also endanger the lives of every person exposed to wireless radiation.
 
Johnson should also be aware that wireless radiation causes damage to DNA, changes to blood composition, and opens the blood brain barrier.
 
Much more scientific information is available in the Bio Initiative Report www.bioinitiative.org .  Please let New York Times readers know about the dangers they face from wireless radiation and advise them that the article by Johnson was not accurate.
