Lyme disease / School Board duty to protect children / Wi-Fi Allergy DJ’s War Of Words

Hi all

I highly recommend that you read this lengthy article about Lyme disease and its links to many illnesses.  Many of the symptoms of Lyme Disease are similar to those suffered by persons with electro hyper sensitivity.  You will learn about the difficulty in diagnosing the disease and how difficult it is to recover after being infected.

"According to CDC statistics, reported cases of Lyme disease rose by nearly 38 percent between 2007 and 2008.

Some are now questioning whether Lyme disease might in fact be a silent epidemic.

Millions of people who are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, Alzheimer's, chronic fatigue syndrome and other degenerative diseases could actually have Lyme disease causing or contributing to their condition".

The diseases mentioned above have all been linked to electro magnetic radiation (EMR).  We have to ask: is the EMR damaging human immune systems to such an extent that it is allowing Lyme Disease and other ailments to cause massive damage to our bodies?

Dear Martin: 

I am sending you the Registered Letter to Langley School District Officials which documents all efforts so far, and puts them on notice that they are failing in their duty to protect children. This is a necessary step that every parent needs to take in order to open the way for legal action rectifying the problem of wi-fi in schools. 

You will also find Non-Consent Form which restricts a child from being exposed to wireless internet in class. I have spoken with a teacher tonight who believes that this simple Non-Consent has to be honored by the school.  

Please circulate to support other parents. Parents are welcome to use these documents for their own schools in their entirety or in part.

Wi-Fi Allergy DJ's War Of Words

Steve Miller aka Afterlife chatted to the Sun newspaper this week about developing an allergy to Wifi and revealed that since developing the condition he's become a virtual recluse.

"It's almost impossible to find somewhere without Wi-Fi nowadays. If I fancy a pint I have to travel three miles to the only pub in my area that doesn't have it," the nowadays Cornwall based producer explained.

"I can't just go to the shops because huge parts of the high street affect me. If I go somewhere, I can instantly sense the Wi-Fi and have to leg it," he complained.

The formerly globe-trotting international DJ revealed he's lost thousands in cancelled bookings since being unable to find wifi free accommodation when touring, though was roundly ridiculed by Daily Telegraph science writer Ian Douglas.

"Steve Miller, poor man, thinks he is allergic to Wifi," said Douglas, "He is one of the two per cent of British people who believes they are hypersensitive to electromagnetic radiation. They are all wrong."

The Telegraph's technology expert said wifi waves are so close in frequency to TV and mobile phone broadcasts to be effectively indistinguishable and instead suggested Steve might be agoraphobic.

"Agoraphobic? I don't think so! I spend most of my free time sailing at sea," Steve told Skrufff.

"Ian Douglas can say what he likes but it wont stop wifi giving me and thousands of other people a headache and feeling ill. For someone who writes about technology for a living he seems very poorly informed," he suggested.

Steve urged the Telegraph writer to check the website of campaigners in Glastonbury who this week succeeded in persuading their local council to withdraw plans for univeral wifi and said he's attracted enormous support since speaking to the Sun this week.

"Ian Douglas is right in saying that nobody has an 'allergy' to wifi, as far as I know there is no such thing," he clarified.

"From what I have read lately Electro Hypersensitivity is a recognised condition in Sweden where over 286,000 people who have it claim a disability allowance to screen their homes from EMF," he continued.

"It is also recognized officially in Canada and only this week the Israeli Government have banned the marketing of domestic wifi products on health grounds as it not been proven a safe technology. Breaking news is that the Glastonbury petition (by the local residents) to remove the town's wifi has been a success and the council are backing down."

"From what I have read it's all about proximity to the base station, as most people have them in their homes it's pretty close 24/7 and the comparison is 5 metres from a wifi domestic antenna is the equivalent of living 100 metres from a cellfone mast," he said.

"What I do find interesting is that the people who think this is all in my imagination seem very aggressive in their responses which are never based on a sound logic but rather more based on insults and name calling. Behavioural studies have shown a link between cellfone/wifi radiation exposure and aggressive behaviour," he noted.

Steve Miller's new album Afterlife – Electrosensitive, is out shortly on Defected Records.

  1. Thanks to Steve Miller for speaking out and creating much needed awareness about the dangers of wireless technology.

    WiFi health hazards are not isolated to Steve Miller. It is a global issue. I suffered for many years with headaches, sleep problems and dizzy spells and was eventually diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 38. I discovered that I was living in a cancer cluster. I was living 100m from a phone mast which uses similar radiation to wifi. I now realise that my symptoms are known as electrosensitivity.

    An international working group of scientists, researchers and public health policy professionals produced the 2007 BioInitiative report. The report provides detailed scientific information on health impacts when people are exposed to electromagnetic radiation hundreds or even thousands of times below the guidelines. The authors reviewed more than 2000 scientific studies and concluded that the existing public safety limits are inadequate to protect public health.

    In September 2008, MEPs voted 522 to 16 to urge ministers across Europe to bring in stricter radiation limits and said: "The limits on exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) which have been set for the general public are obsolete. The European Parliament "is greatly concerned at the Bio-Initiative international report which points in its conclusions to the health risks posed by emissions from devices such as mobile telephones, UMTS, WiFi, WiMax and Bluetooth, and also DECT telephones

    Many people though out the world are now suffering with this disabling condition. In Sweden (EHS) is an officially fully recognised functional impairment. It is not a disease, people are suffering due to environmental exposure to electromagnetic radiation. These waves can cause headaches, fatigue, anxiety, sleep problems, nausea and depression. Many people 'burnout' and become Electro-Hypersensitive (EHS) from the constant effects of mobile phones, mobile phone masts, Wi-Fi, Wimax exposure at their place of work, home or school.

    Studies have shown that microwaves do affect your hormone levels and can break down the blood brain barrier. Electro-hypersensitive people are like canaries in a coal mine who feel the effects. ES people could be alerting the public to a public health disaster.

    What sort of society are we living today? By encouraging the proliferation of wireless devices, society has created an invisible under-class who are denied the opportunities available to everyone else. ES victims are often unable to use their talents and capabilities to earn a living through denial of access to transport and places most people take for granted. With other forms of disability, society has taken the view that such a situation is unacceptable and as legislated to ensure equal access and equal opportunity. It is offensive, inhumane and wholly unacceptable to allow this sort of discrimination.

    It goes against the The UN 22 Standard Rules on the Equalisation of Opportunities for People with Disabilities – since 2007 upgraded into The UN Convention on Human Rights for Persons with Functional Impairments, http://www.un.org).

  2. Thanks for commenting Eileen: we'll be running a more indepth article with Steve in a couple of weeks. Jonty

  3. Canada calling to wake up people, Steve is telling it like it is! My internet service provider activated Wi-Fi in my office without me knowing – I was sick as hell for 9 weeks and didn't know what was wrong with me – so bad I couldn't work – dizzy, nausea, daily headaches/migraines, totally crapped out digestion, couldn't sleep, heart palpitations that ended up going to hospital because it felt like a heart attack, bleeding gums and sensitive teeth, exhaustion, anxiety and depression. Went to the doctor – stress he said and wanted to give me valium. Then the neighbour kid told me I had great wi-fi for his games – what a shock! Screamed at the service provider and they turned the wireless off from their head office (our 5 computers all hardwired for years). Guess what – I was better within days – dizziness, headaches and sleep problems went away almost immediately.

    But now all those symptoms come back if I stay in a hotel with wi-fi, am visiting a friends house with wi-fi for longer than a couple of hours, go to university or colleges with wi-fi, go in stores with wi-fi. We have a country house and the neighbour's wi-fi comes through the walls – stayed there for three days and was sick for a week. Luckily, we can keep our house clean of electromagnetic pollution so I am fine at home. And no, Ian Douglas, I am not agoraphobic. I have traveled the world 3 times over, operated my own businesses and been on the road for days – things only changed once I had too much wi-fi.

    I know what Steve means when he says he is like an exile on his own planet. I am the same – I can't go to so many places now, and I used to travel everywhere, do everything, stay anywhere, eat anything, and was strong. Now, I can't shop in any wi-fi areas, and stay away from cell towers as well – they give me instant headache. I also can't use my cell phone like I did for the last 20 years – makes me have headaches, tired and upset digestion. Health professionals who know about this have told me I became sick with microwave radiation, and now I will be sensitive forever. The only cure is to stay away from electromagnetic pollution in a wireless crazy world! What kind of life is that!

    And you had better hear this news too – the more you get exposed, the younger you are exposed, the longer you are exposed – you will get to where I am too – sensitive to all this untested and unregulated technology – right now it is estimated there are 3% to 10% sensitive enough to know it and up to 35% are getting symptoms of microwave sickness but they don't know what it is!

    I have lots of friends who are just like me here in Canada and they have traced their health problems to wi-fi and other wireless tech products – dizzy, sleep problems, headaches, exhaustion, tinnitus, restless legs, anxiety, depression, all kinds of crazy symptoms. Then they go hardwired and stop using cell phone so much – everything clears up in a few days – and they could have been sick for a couple of years (since they put in the wi-fi).

    UK, US and Canadian governments not warning their public – other countries are putting health of public before business, money, greed and pure corruption. This is a public health scandal – how many people have to get sick, really sick with cancer, leukemia, brain tumours, early onset of Alzheimers and dementia before the public pain pressures governments to protect people? See book by Dr. Magda Havas "Public Health SOS: The Shadow Side of the Wireless Revolution" available on Amazon.com.

    People of the World Join Together – This is a Global Health Experiment that you didn't sign up for! Go hard wired for a start, use your cell on speaker and as little as possible, protest against cell towers in your neighbourhood, stop wi-fi and wi-max coming to your town – demand safe technology or you will all end up just like Steve, like me, like hundreds of other Canadians and people around the world.

    Of course, if you don't believe me, just wait and see…….

  4. People who are sensitive to WiFi or phone mast radiation may just be the canaries in the coal mine.
    The Swedes estimate between 5 and 9% of the population are affected, however some reports are now saying its as high as 30%.
    Many people may be suffering some symptoms such as sleep problems without realising why.
    Sensitivity is not the only effect of microwave radiation exposure .
    There are 2 studies around phone masts both showing tripling of cancer incidence after only 5 years. (Naila ; Wolf and Wolf)
    In 2007, Panorama did a documentary on which it was demonstrated that in a school classroom with WiFi laptops, the radiation intensity was 3 times higher than in the main beam of a phone mast. 70% of our schools now have WiFi.
    We at Mast Sanity are very concerned about this and are calling for WiFi to be banned in schools just as it is in some parts of the EU.
    There are safer alternatives such as dlan or Home Plug. Ethernet cables provide faster connection to the internet.
