Does Devil oversee prayers? / Allergic to WiFi? / Wind farm will cause devastating problems

Does the Devil oversee prayers at these churches?

How can these churches make deals that can harm their congregation and their neighbours?

How can cell phone companies produce such false information as quoted below?

How can the government the police and health authorities let them get away with it?

Church takes mast money

From The Sunday Times

MORE than 50 churches in Scotland have installed mobile phone masts, prompting claims they are jeopardising the health of their parishioners for money.

Parishes are earning up to £10,000 a year from phone providers who have installed antennae in spires to broaden their networks.

Most are Church of Scotland but four Scottish Episcopal churches and a synagogue have signed deals.

The practice has been criticised by groups which say antennae could pose a risk to human health. While some studies claim to have linked them with nearby cancer clusters, others have found no evidence of harmful effects.

St Andrew's Church in Irvine, Reid Memorial Church in Edinburgh and Arbroath West Kirk are among those to have signed deals with O2, which typically pays up to £5,000 a year. T-Mobile said some churches were paid up to £10,000 annually.

The network provider 3 said it had equipment in nine churches. Vodafone stated it had rental agreements with up to 20 churches in Scotland, and Orange said masts had been installed in more than a dozen.

In 2006, the World Health Organisation concluded there was "no convincing scientific evidence" that weak signals from base stations and wireless networks caus ed adverse health effects. However, some academics argue they can weaken the body's cells. Dr Andrew Goldsworthy, an honorary lecturer in biology at London's Imperial College, said: "Churches should consider the likely effects on the health of the people living nearby as well as a small proportion of their congregations before allowing the installation of antennae on their premises."

Murdo Macdonald, policy officer in the society, religion and technology project at the Church of Scotland, said: "There is not an official central church policy on phone masts in churches. It is an individual congregation decision but obviously one would urge caution if things are too close to individual houses."

A spokeswoman for the Scottish Episcopal church said while some churches had telecommunications masts, others declined the advances of network providers. She added approval of the main church body was needed for a mast.

Vodafone insisted its base stations observed stringent international guidelines and typical exposures were many times lower than the recommended levels.

O2 said: "We are confident in all of the scientific evidence that has been gathered to date. We are confident there is no risk from masts."

Orange said: "People can be very reassured by the science. Review after review carried

out around the world has not found adverse health effects caused by mobile phone masts operating within international health and safety guidelines."

Are you allergic to WiFi? Steve Miller is

by Davey Winder

Saturday, 25 July 2009

Steve Miller is not agoraphobic and has not got Swine Flu. So why is he under virtual house arrest? The answer, strangely enough, is because he's allergic to WiFi. No, really.
Although not widely publicised, nor understood by many in the medical profession, Electrical Hypersensitivity (ES) is said to cause symptoms including sleep disturbance, headaches, concentration problems, limb and joint pains, impaired balance and hearing loss.

Steve Miller knows all about it, because he has the thing and it is keeping him trapped inside the 18 inch thick granite walls of his remote detached house near Falmouth in Cornwall, UK. When he ventures out he feels sick, dizzy, confused and suffers from agonising headaches.
A trip down the local high street is a nightmare, and most pubs are out of bounds for Steve. As are, for that matter, airports and hotels. He can no longer travel by train because of the pain and suffering his condition causes.
And it's all caused by WiFi.
According to the
ES support group there has been much media speculation, but also a lot of research, into the ill-health effects caused by "a number of modern wireless communication conveniences" including mobile phones and base stations, DECT cordless phones and, of course, WiFi.
told The Sun newspaper that he feels "like an exile on my own planet" claiming that it is "almost impossible to find somewhere without wi-fi nowadays".
He says that he has to travel three miles to find a pub without WiFi if he fancies a pint, and even had to move house as being within 50 yards of any other houses leaves him open to being infected by their WiFi signals.
Apparently Steve is not alone, and some two percent of the UK population suffer from the effects of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity. With cars being equipped as
rolling WiFi hotspots there could soon be no escape for sufferers.


Large crowd turns out to protest proposed wind farm

"It is absolutely devastating to me," he said. "With my disability, I can't live in most houses. My special house cost more than other houses. Only one with my disability can understand. If the wind towers are there, I will have to move. I have a severe form of environmental illness and if the (wind/solar farm) is brought it, it will completely change my life. They don't make good neighbors for people like me."
