What the TSA is NOT Telling You about Full Body Scans...

Why a federal appeals court has been asked to suspend full body scans at airports. The constitutional reasons - plus the less-discussed health risks of the scans put into perspective by comparing it to other more dangerous radiation, including your flight itself...


ICNIRP's New ELF EMF Guidelines - Based Upon What Scientific Papers ?

Source of information:, November 24, 2010

After we (microwavenews) posted our November 15 Short Take on ICNIRP's failure to cite a host of papers showing geno toxic effects of power-frequency EMFs, we got an e-mail from Kjell Hansson Mild 1) of UmeƄ University in northern Sweden. "ICNIRP missed many others," he told us. Mild appended a list of eight papers 2) he had been associated with -published between 1984 and 2001, all in peer-reviewed journals. They doc ument DNA and chromosomal breaks in cells, animals (mice and rats)and humans (substation workers and train drivers). No word yet about how ICNIRP missed every single one,3353493,8442779,7980658,8313501,10757046,10757053,11424153


Wi Fi Parents Homeschooling Support Group

Parents pulling their kids out of schools to avoid Wi-Fi exposure and I think it would be very wise to create a support group of parents doing the same thing across Canada. If homeschooling parents who have pulled their children out to avoid Wi-Fi contact me with their e-mail addresses, I can put together a shared list with details as to locations and phone numbers. Please share this info to provide a support group for other parents who are choosing to responsibly and rightly protect their children.

It is shocking that Teachers and Administration are being threatened , and I also have reason to believe that School District Trustees are not free to speak on this issue either due to pressure. This situation needs to be investigated as it is becoming more common. This violates Canadian democratic rights and freedoms, and it is interesting how easily the teachers and admin personnel (principals and vice-principals) are controlled by these kinds of threats.

Hi Una,
I was at your seminar on Wednesday night at  xxxxxx
Elementary. The next day we removed our daughter from the school and informed the vice principal that we were doing so and why. She was shocked and asked me if we had really thought it through.
Later in our conversation she admitted that the reason she and the principal had not been there was that they had received 'a very clear directive' from the board, and that 'as agents of the board, it would be inappropriate for (them) to attend as (they) had to remain neutral.' She went on to spin out the usual diatribe about Health Canada guidelines, to which I asked her at what point she would make a stand. I asked if she was waiting for a cluster of kids with brain tumours, or perhaps an eleven year old who needed her uterus removed... I ended the call very dissatisfied with her responses, but was glad that I had managed to get the information that suggests staff who question the status quo are being threatened by the school board.

Wi-Fi safety to be tested


The Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board will test its schools for electromagnetic levels before and after it phases in the use of Wi-Fi.

The board approved the purchase of two electromagnetic field monitoring units at a cost of between $1,500 to $2,000 during its monthly regular board meeting Thursday night.

The units will allow staff to monitor electromagnetic levels to ensure they don't exceed limits Health Canada has set.

"We have been assured that Wi-Fi was safe or we wouldn't have approved it, but because some parents are still concerned, this will allow us to alleviate their concerns," board chairwoman Diane Lloyd said. "That monitoring will allow us to give security to our parents and the public that we are looking after it properly."

The board approved Wi-Fi, used to connect computers and electronic devices to the Internet without wires, last spring but was met with growing parental concern about the issue in the fall, prompting the board to investigate a monitoring system, Lloyd said.

"When parents are concerned, we are concerned. One way to alleviate those concerns is to get this monitoring," she said.

The hot topic drew about 60 people, including several school board trustees and trustee candidates, to a meeting on the issue at the Evinrude Centre in October.

While Health Canada and the local medical officer of health, Dr. Rosana Pellizzari, say there's no evidence the wireless technology is unsafe, the local chapter of Citizens for Safe Technology says Wi-Fi shouldn't be in schools until there's evidence it is safe.

Trent University associate professor Magda Havas, who studies electromagnetic radiation, has said Health Canada is basing its stance on faulty science.

Peterborough parent Malini Menon criticized the public board during the October meeting, saying they were treating children like "guinea pigs."

She confronted the board during Thursday night's meeting as an announced delegate.

Menon said the board approved Wi-Fi without proper consultation with the public and parents.

"The public has remained largely unaware of the existence of the plan (to phase in Wi-Fi)," Menon said. "For a school board to conceive of and approve a plan without input from the public is unacceptable."

Parents and students were consulted as stakeholders when the board's technology committee was seeking input on its Wi- Fi plan, Lloyd said. The policy was also sent to the regional student councils in Peterborough, Northumberland and Clarington for input before coming back to the board for approval, she said.

Education director Rusty Hick told the board Wi-Fi systems within a given school would be stopped if monitoring detects unsafe levels.

"Student safety is our absolute first priority," he said. "Clearly if there were any levels of anything, whether it was tap water or whatever, that approached a level of danger to our students, we would stop immediately and proceed only after medical advice."


The good news is that the school board will test the radiation in the school.  It will be below SC 6 but at least they will have readings and IF students or teachers become ill because of this radiation, they will know at what levels this happens.
