The Risk to Children / Seizures and Cell Phones / Electrocution of America / Never again / Frying your brain / Bicarbonate / EMF-Omega News

from Microwave Radiation

This is an excellent video on the dangers and health risks of installing Wi-Fi in schools. Kids (YES KIDS) describing many of the same symptoms I and others who are sensitive experience when exposed to Wi-Fi, cell towers, cordless phones and other sources of electromagnetic radiation.

Let's not mince words - with the unmitigated roll-out of Wi-Fi in schools this is a monumental problem and we need to act swiftly and strongly to protect our children. We don't need peer reviewed/published studies to act on this.

We cannot wait until many our children start showing symptoms. I firmly believe that we need to raise awareness on a massive scale and do whatever it takes to have Wi-Fi removed from schools. If we need to start picketing or peacefully demonstrating on a regular basis, so be it. We the people elect our governments - unfortunately it looks like "we the people" have to do their job of protecting our children.

Link to the video:

Citizens for Safe Technology will be hosting several public meetings in Surrey and Vancouver over the coming months to discuss the dangers and risks of cell phone use by children and also Wi-Fi in schools. We will be showing a new, award winning documentary called "Full Signal".

Please distribute this message widely and help us continue raise awareness. Judging by the tone of the hearings on microwave radiation in Ottawa this past week, our government isn't doing anything to protect us and does not want to stop the gravy train of industry revenue from these technologies. Their longer they deny the problem the greater their liability grows.

I'll leave you with one more link. There you will find several short videos of retired scientist Barry Trower talking about Wi-Fi in schools. Barry worked for the British military intelligence in microwave and stealth warfare. Barry reported a week ago in a radio interview that France is spending 174 million euros pulling Wi-Fi out of all its schools. I have been in touch with Barry's assistant and she is sending me some info to confirm this.

Seizures and Cell Phones

The comments are more interesting than the article:



Electrocution of America


Re your today's "Livestock Lawsuit: Dairy farm gets millions for shocked cows"

In case you want to inform your readers:

Similar happened to the Allen Dairy Farm. Russ Allen then wrote the book "Electrocution of America, Is your Utility Company Out to Kill You?"

Very interesting, lots to learn!

Cheers, Hans.


Another 'never again' moment

By Eben Carle | Published: 04/30/10 at 12:00 AM

If government insists upon regulating everything except itself, then those energies should be directed at a rather loud and rude killer: cell phones.

For years the effects of prolonged cell phone use have been hinted-at and rumored about like country folklore. It has been whispered like a Luddite prophesy in the spirit of "videogames causing ADHD." However, this month's issue of Harper's Magazine brings the anecdotal into focus. Cell phones emit roughly the same frequency of radiation as microwave ovens and today reach a market of more than four billion people—60 percent of the world's population. A review by UC Berkeley's School of Public Health found a correlation between prolonged cell phone use and the risk for developing brain tumors.

Our love affair with the cell phone is now more than a decade old and their presence is ubiquitous. In D.C., the most profound and attentive relationships seem to occur between politicos and their BlackBerrys. The notorious Beltway traffic has become even more stop-and-go, as drivers dart their eyes between the road and the glowing orb in their hand. Lines at Starbucks have become a chorus of half-conversations, the inanity of which inspires plummeting confidence in human possibility.

Across America, cell phones have become the cigarette of the 21st century. They give the hand something to do while the rest of you is occupied. They are life rafts for the antisocial, allowing one to drift from the immediate physical world. What's more, they have spared an entire generation the need to survive a moment alone with an unanchored thought—leaving one to wonder how many unexpected ideas have been lost to the glowing distractions of an ironically named Smartphone.

Questioning the safety of cell phones continues to be met with incredulous stares. This is to be expected. In the life cycle of a disaster this one—if accurate—is in its infancy. We remain so amused by the newness of the cell phone that its effects haven't warranted a collective pause. We are, today, where we were with tobacco in the 17th century—a crop, native to America that delighted the masses, took the world by storm and ultimately killed 100 million people during the 20th century.

With a cell phone market of 4 billion people, the potential impact to public health is self evident. Rather than rushing in after the fact with reflective regulation—that woeful scene where politicians stand atop the smoldering rubble of another disaster, crying "Never again!"—government should issue a definitive warning. "Never again!" moments are not constructive and, given what we know of the Space-Time Continuum, they are also some of the more foolish words one can utter, even euphemistically.


Is your cell phone frying your brain?


Apr. 30 2010 - 1:12 pm

OK, if you think it's all just a lot of hysterical hooey about cell phones & radiation, you can click on to another page. But this op ed piece by public health expert Joel Moskowitz (with Diana McDonnell and Gene Kazinets) in the San Francisco Chronicle got my attention. Moskowitz is the Director of U.C. Berkeley's Center for Family and Community Health.

A huge, 30-year study called COSMOS has been launched in Europe to determine whether cell phones cause cancer and other health problems. Meanwhile, policymakers in Sacramento are considering legislation to ensure people know how much radiation their cell phones emit. The wireless industry vigorously opposes such legislation. It argues that its phones comply with regulations, and there is no consensus about risks so people don't need to know this. Our research review published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology found alarming results to the contrary.

We reviewed 23 case-control studies that examined tumor risk due to cell phone use. Although as a whole the data varied, among the 10 higher quality studies, we found a harmful association between phone use and tumor risk. The lower quality studies, which failed to meet scientific best practices, were primarily industry funded.

The 13 studies that investigated cell phone use for 10 or more years found a significant harmful association with tumor risk, especially for brain tumors, giving us ample reason for concern about long-term use.

Do federal regulations adequately protect the public? The 1996 Federal Communications Commission regulations are based upon the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), a measure of heat generated by six minutes of cell phone exposure in an artificial model that represents a 200-pound man's brain. Although every cell phone model has a SAR, the industry doesn't make it easy to find it. Moreover, children, and adults who weigh less than 200 pounds, are exposed to more radiation than our government deems "safe."

So just for fun, I got out the 107-page User Guide that came with my cell phone. Full disclosure: my cell phone is turned off unless I'm out walking or traveling; it takes pictures but it doesn't do apps. Still, those 107 pages say it can do all the fancy Stuff.

On page 81 I found the SAR data. Even if I wanted to decipher the very small print, there is no way any of it would be meaningful to a lay reader. It does say that "Your wireless phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed limits for exposure to radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S. Government."

I do try to trust the U.S. Government. But since they once sent my then-Marine husband double-timing out of a foxhole toward an A-bomb blast with a radiation tag hung around his neck in the '50s, it would appear we have long been open to experimentation about radiation damage. (He survived. The animals positioned closer to the blast site did not. No one will ever be certain how much damage was sustained by those Marines wearing radiation tags… but then, who knew we'd keep right on storing bombs and fighting senseless wars anyway?)

Another what-can-you-believe? comes from CNN's medical guru Sanjay Gupta in this line from a two-year-old commentary on potential cell phone radiation damage still up on his blog:

Over the last year, I have reviewed nearly a hundred studies on this topic, including the 19 large epidemiological studies. I urge you to do the same and read carefully to see what you think. Here is an example from a Swedish paper showing no increased risk of a brain tumor, known as acoustic neuroma. (see study) As you read the paper, you will find they defined a "regular" cell phone user as someone who uses a cell phone once per week during six months or more.

Once a week? Hello? Even in Sweden, even a decade ago, did anyone with a cell phone not use it at least once an hour? This very old study did have a timeless conclusion: "Our findings do not indicate an increased risk of acoustic neuroma related to short-term mobile phone use after a short latency period. However, our data suggest an increased risk of acoustic neuroma associated with mobile phone use of at least 10 years' duration."

Moskowitz argues that it's time to revamp FCC regulations, pointing out that it is not just heat transfer but also variations in frequencies emitted that could cause damage.

Most of us know something about potential damage lurking in our Stuff. But we tend to be slow learners, and our regulatory agencies tend to be even slower. Having just lost a greatly loved sister, a long-time smoker, to pulmonary failure, Moskowitz' concluding paragraphs hit home:

We should address this issue proactively even if we do not fully understand its magnitude. Our government has faced similar public health threats in the past. In 1965, although there was no scientific consensus about the harmful effects of cigarettes, Congress required a precautionary warning label on cigarette packages: "Cigarette Smoking May Be Hazardous to Your Health." More specific warnings were not required until 1984: "Smoking Causes Lung Cancer, Heart Disease, Emphysema, And May Complicate Pregnancy."

Should we have waited 19 years until absolutely certain before we informed the public about these risks?

Although more research on cell phone radiation is needed, we cannot afford to wait. There are 285 million cell phones in use in this country, and two-thirds of children over the age of seven use them. Manufacturers bury the SAR within their owner's manuals, along with safety instructions to keep your phone up to an inch away from your body.

Nine nations have issued precautionary warnings. It is time for our government to require health warnings and publicize simple steps to reduce the health risks of cell phone use.

Why not?

Government must inform us of cell phone risk.
