Cell Phone Radiation Boosts Cancer Rates in Animals;
$25 Million NTP Study Finds Brain Tumors


U.S. Government Expected To Advise Public of Health Risk

 
The U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) is expected to issue a public announcement that cell phone radiation presents a cancer risk for humans. The move comes soon after its recently completed study showed statistically significant increases in cancer among rats that had been exposed to GSM or CDMA signals for two-years.
 
Discussions are currently underway among federal agencies on how to inform the public about the new findings. NTP senior managers believe that these results should be released as soon as possible because just about everyone is exposed to wireless radiation all the time and therefore everyone is potentially at risk.
The new results contradict the conventional wisdom, advanced by doctors, biologists, physicists, epidemiologists, engineers, journalists and government officials, among other pundits, that such effects are impossible. This view is based, in part, on the lack of an established mechanism for RF radiation from cell phones to induce cancer.

New cellphone study linking cancer to mobiles dubbed a game changer

In a report released alongside the NTP study, the researchers said: "Given the widespread global usage of mobile communications among users of all ages, even a very small increase in the incidence of disease resulting from exposure to [radio-frequency radiation] could have broad implications for public health."

Brief comments on the NTP study

The National Toxicology Program's study should have been done a long time ago, before the cell phones were commercially introduced on the market. This is a typical toxicology study aimed at determining the safety of a radiation-emitting gadget.
 
 
 
 
-------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
 
 

There is a link between mobile phones and cancer: Radio waves emitted by devices 'increase the risk of brain and heart tumours', report claims

Ron Melnick, a former National Toxicology Program researcher who worked on early stages of the study before his retirement, told the Wall Street Journal: 'Where people were saying there's no risk, I think this ends that kind of statement.'

Study links cellphones to cancer in rats

The study partially supports a 2011 finding from the World Health Organization, which led the group to classify the radio frequencies regularly emitted by mobile phones in the same group as other potentially cancer-causing substances.
 
 
 
 
---------------------------------------------------------------
 
 

Cell Phone-Cancer Link Seen in Rat Study

The new research was conducted on rats by the U.S. National Toxicology Program, which exposed rats to radiofrequency radiation that comes from cell phones for about nine hours a day for seven days a week. They found that the exposed rats were more likely to develop cancers, specifically malignant gliomas—a tumor of glial cells in the brain—and tumors in the heart.

Cellphone Radiation Linked to Cancer in Major Rat Study

Results of the largest, most expensive animal study on the link between cellphones and cancer are in. And the link is positive—weak, but positive.

"Game-Changing" Study Links Cellphone Radiation to Cancer

It's the moment we've all been dreading. Initial findings from a massive federal study, released on Thursday, suggest that radio-frequency (RF) radiation, the type emitted by cellphones, can cause cancer.
 
 
 
 
-------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
Study Linking Tumors in Rats to Cellphones Raises a Host of Questions
Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society, issued a statement on Friday that called this study "good science," and called for further research because the animal research used very high signal strengths.
 
But he said, "The NTP report linking radiofrequency radiation (RFR) to two types of cancer marks a paradigm shift in our understanding of radiation and cancer risk."

Autism - Those wanting to have a child should be greatly concerned and frightened!

May 22, 2016

Dear Government Opposition Critics,

In Canada, the explosion in Autism in children likely mirrors the
unprecedented tragedy that is happening in the U.S.! In 1950 - just 1 in
25,000 children had Autism; in 1970 - it was 1 in 2,500; in 2000 - 1 in 150;
in 2004 - 1 in 125; in 2006 - 1 in 110; in 2008 - 1 in 88; in 2013 - 1 in 50
(down to 1 in 27 in populated cities)!  No government on earth can afford
such staggering - and climbing - health care costs!   
http://www.autism-adhd.org.au/autism_prevalence

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"? Devices such as 'Smart' meters, cell phone towers,
cordless phones, GPS satellites emit microwave radiation constantly - and
never shut off! 

Tragically 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, etc.  

All people, politicians included, need to realize that today's NON-thermal
radiation, although invisible, is cumulative, i.e., it all adds up from each
and every wireless gadget on the market - like smoke thickens in a room full
of an ever-increasing number of people smoking!

Parents should be absolutely outraged! Expectant mothers should be greatly
concerned! Those wanting children must be realistic and educate themselves
about today's ubiquitous pulsed, NON-thermal microwave radiation! The public
should demand an RCMP investigation!
Sincerely,

James G. ("Jerry") Flynn, Captain (Ret'd)

Screen-addicted South Koreans compete in 'space out' contest

More than 80% of South Korea's 50 million people have smartphones, with a growing fixation on everything digital seen as a serious problem. The country's smartphone users spend an average of four hours a day tweeting, chatting or playing games, with about 15% showing symptoms of addiction, according to state data.

Geneva: Electrosensitive Persons at the University Hospital (HUG)
 
These persons, sensitive to the radiation emitted by Wi-Fi and other wireless technologies, cannot be treated at hospitals because this type of radiation saturates treatment rooms and even patient rooms. Everyone could become electrosensitive.

Now Landis and Gyr have filed for an injunction to stop Muckrock and Mocek from publishing the documents. In their petition, they argue that their devices' security would be terminally compromised if their workings were revealed to the public -- saying, in effect, that their security was grounded in obscurity. They even go so far as to claim that terrorists could use the documents as a roadmap for an attack on Seattle.

Hydro Quebec removing Itron Sentinel Smart Meters due to blast risk

Hydro Quebec is accelerating the replacement of some old-style electricity meters because of an explosion risk.

About two dozen have blown up, with no injuries and only minor property damage.

La Presse says in all, 4,300 of the Itron Sentinel meters are being swapped out for new smart meters - a switch that the utility says was in the works anyway.

Most are in small businesses and owners have been advised to wear safety glasses when approaching the meters.

The SENTINEL is a solid-state, polyphase meter . It is also a smart meter. This self-contained or transformer-rated meter is designed for use with your high-end commercial and industrial (C&I) customers, including large industrial sites and substations.

Important Israel EMF News
 
April 20th 2016 It was an exciting week in Israel on the fighting the wireless front, with 2 main developments that are likely related:
 
1) TV Documentary about Electro-Sensitivity and wireless - "HOW WE ARE KILLING OURSELVES -  WIRELESS RADIATION"

2)The City of Haifa ordered to disconnect Wi-Fi in all schools and planing to install wired Internet instead


TV Documentary - "HOW WE ARE KILLING OURSELVES -  WIRELESS RADIATION"

It started with a 30 minutes TV documentary about the epidemic of Electro-Sensitivity that was aired last Tuesday at 9pm on prime time TV and which got the highest rating of the day.

The name chosen for the documentary: "HOW WE ARE KILLING OURSELVES -  WIRELESS RADIATION"  leaves no doubt about the message of the movie. Press here for the movie (it is in Hebrew but some interviews are in English)

The tv channel run constant very effective and alarming promo to the movie that created a lot of buzz and to my opinion was even better than the movie itself:-) You can see the promo on my Facebook page.

The director planned to do 10 minutes on ES as part of a film about the diseases of the 21st century, but eventually, after working with us intensely on it, they understood the extent of the problem and the lie and how important it is to give an uncompromising warning to the public and decided to do a 30 minutes documentary mainly on ES and the Wi-Fi in schools.

The host was a leading TV media person and his tone was uncompromising - no maybes, precautionary etc, the tone was - there is an epidemic out there. Wireless harms an it is time for us to wake up as it is late already. He started by saying that at least 800,000 people in Israel, i.e. 10% of the population already suffer from different levels of ES and twice aired parts of my interview in which I was saying that the rates are already higher and will continue to increase.

The two government "experts" who lied to the Israeli Supreme Court admitted on the show that the thermal safety standard is irrelevant (opposite to what they told the Supreme Court). I intend to take action now that we have them on camera admitting the opposite to what they told the Supreme Court and left no doubt that they committed perjury.

Most importantly, the movie created a lot of buzz, undoubted ES and sent a very alarming message and was another strong warning that radiation harms are not potential but existing, an in a scale of epidemic. There was no "other side". It is ridiculous to me how anyone who does a program/article on this topic insists on bringing the "other side" - why? Journalism is about exposing the truth. If the truth is clear as it is in the wireless issue, once a journalist understand what the truth is he does not and should not let the "other side" to continue and propagate its lie!

Many participated from Israel (Amir Borenstein, Yael Levin and her daughter Noa gave testimony about what it is like to be electro-sensitive, a few parents who fight the Wi-Fi in schools, I was intervied as an expert and activist, on the medical side we had Prof. Richter and Dr. Yael Stein, and the technical side was  presented by engineer Liran Raz who did a fantastic work)and from the US : 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.

City of Haifa announced it ordered to DISCONNECT Wi-Fi from schools

​This is truly a Breakthrough  - The City of Haifa in Israel announced that it is removing Wi-Fi from schools. This was announced by the mayor, Yona Yahav, who said that "When there is a doubt, when it comes to our children, there is no doubt". He ordered to have all the Wi-Fi disconnected immediately and to start and put wired Internet instead! I guess the definite tone of the tv documentary that aired this week and the buzz it created helped the city to make the final decision. I believe that now that one city decided to stop WI-Fi the trend will continue and will reverse the pro wi-fi trend. Hope other cities will join. Haifa is the 3rd largest city in Israel.

All of this is really exciting. It seems that the hard work we put in the past few years - the supreme court case, the work on and with the media and the uncompromising message I made sure to send are finally paying off. Please everyone out there - the message should be strong. Electro-Sensitivity is an epidemic it is NOT a 3% of "sensitive population" we are now in the double digits in terms of ES - it is an epidemic and the public must be told and warned. Wi-Fi in schools is a disaster and as a person who spends every day 2-4 hours on the phone with people and children who got sick and many contemplate committing suicide I urge you all to be uncompromising. The truth, and all of it must be told.

Continued good luck to us all and thanks to anyone out there who stands up to evil and stupidity.

What the World Health Organization Knew about the Dangers of Microwave Radiation Forty Two Years Ago
 
Microwave radio frequencies have been known for several decades as being toxic!  WHO has mandated 60 scientists and issued a 40 reports book showing this
toxicity back in 1974.  It is called:

Biologic Effects and Health Hazards of Microwave Radiation - WHO
International Symposium Research Agreement No. 05-609-04 - 1974

It is very symptomatic that this document does not show on the WHO website today, isn't it?

Link to the on-line 350 pages report here:

Bien cordialement,

Ing. Dipl. HES

 
And why is the WHO denying this information now? 
Could the WHO now be classed as a criminal organization, because of the health risk, harm and early death that they are responsible for?

Investigation of the spinal cord as a natural receptor antenna for incident electromagnetic waves and possible impact on the central nervous system

In this article, we show, through a FDTD simulation analysis of an incoming electromagnetic field (EMF), that the spinal cord acts as a natural antenna, with frequency dependent induced electric voltage and current distribution.

Why it is that ICNIRP just doesn't get it?

For many years I have been complaining about the unbalanced expert composition of the Main Commission of ICNIRP. ICNIRP can, and should, be considered as a "private club" where, members of the new Main Commission are selected by the members

AT&T Wants to Decommission Landlines in California

Seeking to capitalize upon Californians' growing use of Internet-based phone service, telephone giant AT&T is asking state lawmakers to allow it to decommission its costly landlines
 
 
 
 
 
After the hearing:
 
AB 2395 just passed, as of 4:10 pm PST or so, with only two or three No votes.  There were many great testimonies but AT&T won.
 
We managed to mobilize about 10 people from the disability community, mostly EHS, to go to the hearing today, including Kevin who came up from L.A. on Monday and spent two days going door to door. Sadly several disability and senior groups supported the bill. But the CWA came out in force against it. The whole hallway and hearing room was full of orange shirts. But the committee passed it anyway. Now it goes to the appropriations committee, then the assembly, then the senate.

School District is Served With Legal Liability Notice

  1. Board members who voted in for keeping the Wi-Fi are now personally liable if a child is harmed by the wireless radiation exposures. 
  2. They could be  sued for "willful blindness","child negligence" or possibly even charged with  "reckless endangerment of a child" of which the latter carries criminal penalties.
  3. The BOE is held liable for violating  "Open Government Law," by  misusing  "Executive Session" option designed  to  keep public  agencies court strategies private   when  litigation  is  in process. The Board apparently disbanded the Wi-Fi Task Force  and denied access of  the minutes of that meeting to the public. The BOE then stated "the efficacy  of the group"  was the reason for disbanding it.

Susan Porter is another resident who posted a sign voicing her lack of consent. When she addressed the installation crews, they allegedly told her that the meters "only transmit once a month." She informed them that they actually transmit in continuous pulses.

"It is unfair for their supervisors to expect them to lie to the public. I don't blame them," said Pamela Morgan.
