Microwaves, Science and Lies

A provocative documentary has recently been produced, challenging alleged corruption in the World Health Organisation. It criticises their stance on the potential health risks of mobile phones and RF electromagnetic fields, particularly Factsheet No. 193. The underlying message of the video is that WHO are not reflecting the current position of the science.

and
Through interviews with several whistleblowers, including citizens, journalists, and scientists, this film reveals how, like the tobacco industry, the lobby of the mobile phone industry has built a strategy of "product defense" by artificially creating a scientific doubt about the harmful effects of electromagnetic waves.  In addition to revealing collusion among various organizations including the World Health Organization (WHO), the film documents the actions of specific individuals like Emilie van Deventer of the WHO and Peter Valberg who works for the product defense firm Gradient.

Electro Hyper-sensitivity in Ireland
 

The following letter from Margaret Cousins, a retired nurse, explains in harsh detail the painful experiences of people living with Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity. The tragedy is that it is becoming more common - the lady and her mother in California who are living in their car after Smart Meters were installed in their apartment block, the Dublin man forced to sleep in his garden shed, the elderly couple who are knocked to the ground when they leave their front door - and the longer the present situation continues, the more people who will be affected.

Co. Wexford

Dear John,

I do hope all is well with you and yours.

The radiation situation is horrific down here in Wexford under Fort Mountain. It has been gradually increasing again since June but since last Friday broadband - wi-fi has increased to such an extent that I felt my head would burst and my eyeballs explode over the weekend.

The soreness and gritty painful eyes nearly drove me insane, made worse by an eye test carried out Thursday last. I had to take myself out to Curracloe beach and let the wind blow the electrification away. Signals low since 2 a.m., eyes a little better but the noise and speed of signals rising now at 6 p.m. is everywhere. All I can hear is the sizzling, hissing, swirling tones at speed.  

 In my agony I wrote to.....

 Have they increased the Tetra signal in Leixlip? It goes up here. If there are mishaps in Rosslare Harbour, it goes through the house. I stay in at night causing severe torture. I go to another friend at weekends but it's like going out of the frying pan into the fire but at least I have company. My poor husband is made to stay on his own all these years, appealing to either ESB (Electricity Supply Board) or mobile phone companies has fallen on deaf ears.

 I met with the county manager on 14 August. His secretary wrote some letters but nothing since. Eithne Monks, another electrosensitive and myself have plagued Emmet Fahy, Air Quality and Environment policy official, Dept. of Environment, Newtown Road, Wexford, with letters and am told when the latest study is reported on he'll consent to a meeting. Big deal. The generator has gone on and I am scorched just now. Must get out as the noise is horrendous.

Unfortunately, Margaret's situation is all too common.

Open Your Mind (OYM) Radio - Michael Bevington & Lloyd Morgan - Oct 12th 2014

Guests - Michael Bevington/Lloyd Morgan - Michael's is interest in the biological effects of low-level electromagnetic exposure began in September 2006, when he was sensitised to EM radiation after a WiFi router was installed in his classroom. His case showing harm from WiFi was one of the first to feature in the national press. BBC Panorama programme on the dangers of WiFi in April 2007. In 2007 he became a trustee of the charity ElectroSensitivity UK (ES-UK) and since 2008 has been its chair. In 2010 he published the first edition of Electromagnetic Sensitivity and Electromagnetic Hyper-Sensitivity. L Lloyd Morgan is an electronic engineer by training with 38 years of industrial experience to the Vice Presidential level (retired 2002), a member of international science organizations, the Bioelectromagnetics, Senior Research Fellow, Environmental Health Trust, and Board member International Electromagnetic Field Alliance, scientific Advisor, EM Radiation Research Trust. He has published in the peer-reviewed science and Letters to the Editor in response to science papers. His research focus has been on Wireless Transmitting Devices (WTDs) epidemiology, and dosimetry (the amount of radiation absorbed by human tissue).

REGINA – From installation to a massive recall following several fires, the narrative of SaskPower smart meters heated up in the second half of 2014.

The months of politicians trading shots over this issue may have left you wondering, "What happened, and when?" Global News put together this timeline to help you make sense of it all.

Now hackers have the ability to carry out billing related fraud and shutdown electricity supplies at will. By accessing their memory chips, one can carry out some re-progamming as well as exploit any flawed code there-in to tamper with meter readings, transfer readings to other customers as well as insert network worms that can potentially leave entire neighborhoods in a blackout
 
 
 
 
----------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
 
 
Should the security of the system be breached or the installation fail to fulfil performance claims then consumers may lose trust and that can have a huge impact on energy providers' revenue streams. Equally, if a smart energy device is not fit for purpose or even difficult to use, this will reflect upon the energy supplier's reputation.
 
 
It seems that cancer and other ill health caused by these devices are not even considered as a risk!

Bird decline poses loss not just for environment, but human soul

These are bad days to be a bird. A study released this week found that the most common birds in Europe are declining at an alarming rate, and that is not an idle term. By studying 30 years of data across 25 countries, conservationists estimated that there are now a brain-boggling 421 million fewer birds flapping across the continent's skies than were around in 1980

Science and Pseudoscience
(Forget about chemtrails)
 
Several leading spokespersons for people injured by electromagnetic radiation (EMR) have recently begun to publicly lump EMR together with "chemtrails."  This hurts us all.
 
For over a decade I have ignored the problem, hoping it would go away. But the fable and its message continue to be spread: "Be afraid. Be very, very afraid. Hundreds of thousands of anonymous, faceless people, sworn to silence, are joined in a worldwide conspiracy to rain down chemicals on top of your heads."
 
Earth Island Journal, back in 2003, attempted to put this conspiracy theory to rest before it did too much damage to the environmental movement. An article by Jay Reynolds, titled "The Other Side of 'Chemtrails,' " explained how ordinary jet trails form, and why they remain in the sky and spread out under certain weather conditions. A letter to the editor by yours truly ("Unhappy Trails, Part II") contributed some details.
 
Basically, all jet exhaust contains carbon dioxide, water vapor, and particulates. If the temperature up there is below the dew point, the water vapor will condense and form cirrus clouds—actually clouds of ice crystals at those temperatures. A crisscross pattern forms for two reasons: (1) jets fly in different directions, and (2) winds may blow in different directions at different altitudes. I have a photograph of natural cirrus clouds in a grid-like formation in a meteorology book from 1934. Such patterns have become vastly more common since the late 1960s, when air traffic exploded. The continuous streams of jet traffic inject enormous amounts of water into the upper layers of the atmosphere, raising the humidity and the dew point and facilitating cloud formation.  It is impossible for this not to happen.
 
Origin of the hoax
 
The "chemtrail" conspiracy theory originated when white supremacist Larry Wayne Harris offered his services in 1996 to analyze soil samples from agricultural fields supposedly contaminated by fallout from additives in jet fuel. The following year he and his partner, Richard Lew Finke, started a consulting company and Finke sent out an email announcement about "genocide" via "lines in the sky." Harris, a member of the Aryan Nation and the racist and anti-Semitic sect Christian Identity, was convicted of fraudulent acquisition of bubonic plague bacteria in 1995, and possession of anthrax and impersonation of a CIA agent in 1998. The "chemtrail" hoax that they started went viral on the Internet in 1998, and has continued to do so until today.
 
Book Review
 
Elana Freeland, unfortunately, has just added to the disinformation with her new book, Chemtrails, HAARP, and the Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth. Freeland returned to Santa Fe recently on a book tour, and some anti-wireless campaigners are promoting the book. To see if I was missing something, I bought the book and read it.
 
Freeland claims "chemtrails" rain down dust-sized "nanosensors" that you are forced to breathe, that are remotely monitored, and that spy on everything you do. She claims carbon dioxide is not a greenhouse gas, that it only remains in the atmosphere for five years, and that there is no such thing as global warming. She links every evil under the sun—earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, droughts, even Monsanto's GMOs—to HAARP and "chemtrails." She says "chemtrails" are full of parasites, deliberately dropped on us from aircraft, that burrow into our skin and cause disease. If you are conspiracy-minded, Freeland's book is a gold mine.
 
If, however, you are looking for truth, you will not find it in this book. There are no original sources for any of its "facts." Instead, you will find third-hand quotations from anonymous sources and conspiracy websites. Quotes from Dr. Robert O. Becker and Dr. Neil Cherry, brilliant researchers whom I knew and who are no longer alive to defend themselves, are misused by Freeland in support of ideas they would never have entertained.
 
We will, ultimately, prevail. Wireless technology is doing severe damage to our world, so much damage that society will not be able to bury its head in denial forever. But it does not help our cause to join it together in the public's mind with pseudoscience and paranoid fantasies.

The Canadian initiative to stop Wireless Electrical and Electromagnetic Pollution

Hi All
 
The Ontario Municipal elections are over.  I did not do very well in Stratford and my vote total was lower than I had expected. 
 
The results were quite predictable in most local elections around Ontario and the vast majority of incumbents were easily re-elected. 
 
I did get the message about wireless dangers heard locally and learned about another local family being harmed by wireless radiation.
 
I will be catching up with some older WEEP News reports over the next few days.
 
Thanks for your messages of support.

Bad gut feelings – why doctors aren't spotting Crohn's disease

This long-term condition causes severe stomach pain and diarrhoea and it's on the increase, especially in young people. Yet doctors often fail to recognise it
 
An estimated 250,000 people in the UK suffer from Crohn's and new figures suggest the disease is on the increase. According to the Health and Social Care Information Centre, the number of 16- to 29-year-olds receiving hospital treatment for the condition has risen 300% in the past 10 years, to almost 20,000. Why, then, is it still so hard for doctors to recognise the symptoms?

Europe starts to take EHS / ES seriously
 
The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) has held a public hearing on electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS/ES) on 4th November 2014, attended by about 50 people, followed by a working group meeting in the afternoon to decide on how best to move forward on the EHS issue. The idea of the hearing was apparently their own, submitted by Bernardo Hernández Bataller. The group think the European Commission should pay more attention to this issue.
 
Each day the number of EHS sufferers increases, and they often have to deal with the scepticism of doctors and misdiagnoses. According to new estimates, between 3% and 5% of the population are electro-sensitive, meaning that some 13 million Europeans may suffer from this syndrome, which has various names (electro-sensitivity, Wi-Fi syndrome, microwave syndrome, electromagnetic hypersensitivity, etc.).

Wi Fi Danger - Carnival Ship Nearby

"Carnival says the long-range Wi-Fi it's having installed in various locations is effective at transmissions as far as 40 miles out at sea. More than 50 percent of Carnival's cruising is conducted within 50 miles of shore, Millan said. Far at sea, the service will be handled entirely by satellite. The new service is scheduled to begin with Alaska cruises next summer and then expand to the Mediterranean, Baltic, Western European, and Asian regions in 2015 and 2016."

Apple's Instructions Say Not to Keep Your Phone in Your Pocket

Apple also explicitly states that the phone is not supposed to touch your body much, if at all.

In fact, in the manual for the iPhone 5, Apple says users should carry their iPhones a full 10 millimeters (or .39 inches) away from their bodies at all times. That means, if the device is in the pocket of your jeans, it's much too close.

Heavy mobile usage may cause cancer of salivary glands: Study
The research led to the conclusion that several functional changes and an increase in the size of the parotid glands are observed in people with longer exposure to the radio frequency radiation (RFR) emerging from hand-held phones. These effects could range from migraine to potential indicator of cancer of the parotids.

Rodney Croft to explore link between mobile phone usage and brain tumours at UOW

In response -
 
 

If Prof Croft is unaware of all the adverse health effects that are caused by wireless radiation, he simply cannot be classed as an expert in this field!
He should be aware of several cell phone mast studies which show that the closer people live to the masts, the higher rates of cancer, sleep disruption and other serious health effects.
He should be aware of several studies which show an increase of mouth, ear and brain cancers from cell phone use.
He should be aware of the studies which show harm to male sterility resulting in lower sperm count and decrease in the quality of the sperm when exposed to cell phones.
He should be aware of the breast cancer tumours which are in the shape of cell phones which are kept in the bra of breast cancer victims.
He should be aware of the neurological effects of wireless radiation.
He should be aware that wireless radiation has been called the latest heart risk factor by Dr Steven Sinatra, a famous US heart surgeon and he should be aware of the research by Dr. Magda Havas which show that wireless radiation significantly effects the heart.
These are not insignificant health effects, they are 'major threats to human life' and if Prof Croft is ignoring these effects he is a failure as a researcher and should not be a spokesman on this subject.
For important scientific information about the harm caused by wireless radiation, people should visit the Bio Initiative web site at www.bioinitiative.org .
