Growls grow louder in smart meter war

Herald Sun

Steve Raskivy will not allow anyone on his property to install a smart meter.

Electrical Trades Union secretary Dean Mighell this week raised safety concerns about smart meter installations and said the scheme should be suspended.


'One in eight' will get breast cancer

The incidence of breast cancer appears to have grown by 50% in the past 25 years, with figures for 2008 showing that almost 47,700 UK women were diagnosed with it – this is equates to around 130 diagnoses each day.
Breast cancer incidence rates vary considerably, with the highest rates in Western Europe and the lowest rates in Africa and Asia.

The Ugly Truth

Dr. Neil Cherry – (1946 -2003) EMF pioneer

Integrating his knowledge from classical physics involving resonant absorption, showed that the frequency of the cellphone radiation produced a half wavelength that match the child's size. Therefore children were highly vulnerable for any possible health effects.
New Exposure Guidelines for Electromagnetic Radiation
Friday, February 04, 2011 | BUSINESS WIRE

The scientific journal Reviews on Environmental Health has published a report by international scientists calling for greatly reduced exposure limits for electromagnetic radiation from power line and telecommunications technologies, including cell phones and wireless technologies.

The statement, called The Seletun Scientific Statement, was written based on a large and growing body of science showing biological effects. Scientists say governments should take decisive action now to protect biological function as well as the health of future generations.

"The Seletun Scientific Statement," Reviews on Environmental Health.

In the United States, Congressman Dennis Kucinich announced on June 30, 2010 that he would introduce a bill calling for a U.S. cell phone research program, warning labels on cell phones and an update of antiquated radiation exposure standards. Six months later, no bill has yet been introduced in Congress.

Earlier, in September 2009, Senate hearings were held on the health effects of cell phones, presided over by Senators Arlen Specter and Tom Harkin. To the dismay of scientists, no action has yet been taken since the hearing sixteen months ago. At the hearing, Sen. Harkin said, "I found this really very interesting and very challenging and I can assure you we are going to do some follow-up on this." Nothing has happened since.

The Seletun Scientific Panel today announces a Consensus Agreement including "10 Key Recommendations to Protect Public Health." They say the global population is at risk, that the current accepted measure of radiation risk, the SAR, is inadequate, and that there is abundant evidence biological effects are occurring at exposures 'many orders of magnitude' below existing public safety standards.

Public health advocate, Camilla Rees of, says, "Each time there is a briefing or hearing in Congress, lip service is paid to the concerns of scientists, professors, physicians and citizens. Congress, through inaction, has supported the interests of the telecommunications industry. We hope the Seletun Scientific Statement will finally get the Congressional attention this very serious public health issue deserves."

The radiation gives us brain damage

Published February 3, 2011

Note - Google translation, may not be entirely accurate.

Many people worry about today for the electromagnetic radiation from cell phones, cell towers and wireless networks affect our health. But the Radiation Safety Authority (SSMs) scientific advice is now beating in his annual report stated that there is no evidence that radiation would be dangerous to health.

But after 10 years the situation is different and therefore calls on the SSM at the same time to "just" keep your device from a distance and to use the hands. "It is especially important for children and adolescents. The course will use mobile phone for much longer than today's adults do, "said Andrew Mjönes, investigators at the SSM. Studies in animals have suggested that microwaves could enhance the development of tumors that are already there for other reasons. But the Council believes cynically that more research is needed to safely establish a connection.

It believes, however, not the law. In Sweden, the so-called precautionary principle. The precautionary principle is part of EU law and the European Commission has announced guidelines for the precautionary approach should be done. The aim is to overcome the problem that the measures previously taken too late, only when the risks to human health and the environment was already scientifically reliable. Under these guidelines, an open risk assessment done, where the degree of scientific uncertainty is reported as far as humanly possible.

The precautionary principle has been eliminated by the SSM, since for many years concealed information about risks other than those covered. Bo G Pettersson, who previously worked at the National Board of Health also urged local authorities to be cautious with the precautionary principle in order not to hinder the expansion of the wireless mobile network and broadband network!

The expansion of 3G was about 7 years ago - the statistics on the negative health image, slide right off in connection with this extension. Sleep problems, migraines, headaches, depression, burnout and stress out to be some of the problems is increasing and has reached far down the ages. Children and young people of today exhibit diseases that are normally previously only saw in the elderly and old. To fully underway now includes the deployment of 4G, which emit more radiation.

Stockholm and Oslo, are already the first cities in the world equipped with 4G. Advertising has lulled us into thinking that freedom of surfing in every bush and cave belongs right to roam and that it should be as natural as we can pick blueberries, we would like. But we do not want people to pick blueberries in our gardens or at home in our bedroom! Still less would we allow ourselves to be irradiated by the wireless technology, wherever we go and stand.

Around the world there is intensive research on the risks associated with radiation from wireless technology. Regardless of the telecommunications industry, without any economic interests, research shows that we are exposed to serious health risks. It speaks of our greatest "medical experiments". Telecom industry researchers, however rarely admit any risks. A pretty easy equation to understand. Economic power is the answer.

As the economic power possessed tobacco industry fifty years ago. Many scientists and doctors suggest that this will be the biggest health scandal after the tobacco industry's rampage at one time. But can we really accept that the economy must go before our health?

In more and more public places and businesses installed wireless routers up to offer all free access. Schools have been hanging on the development and almost every Swedish school children today offered his own laptop to surf wirelessly on. Right from the first class.

Not there are many parents who stop to question whether this all-new, never-before-proven technology, is really good for their children. We rely blindly on the industry's alluring advertising on the wireless connection gives us freedom and allows us to be constantly available. We promote better, a billion dollar business than ensuring our children's future health. Have we stopped thinking for themselves?

In a scientific publication by Orhan Bas et al, in the prestigious journal Brain Research, they have shown the losses (!) Of neurons in the hippocampus, the part of the brain where such short-term memory is, after 1 month (1 hour per day) exposure to 900 MHz mobile phone radiation. Is this brain damage, the simple explanation for the mental confusion and denial that exists right now? If you do not remember what you read or hear, you can never realize the need for caution!

SSM recommends a maximum level from the German Foundation ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection), which therefore only protects against acute thermal effects which are already fully covered. SSM claim that there is no single scientific proof that confirms that wireless communication systems (such as GSM, 3G, 4G, WiMAX, WiFi, DECT phones, etc.) could be a health risk, even for our children or pregnant women.

The same enigmatic assessment does not the EU Parliament who, with reference to the more than 1500 accumulated scientific studies in The BioInitiative Report, as of September 4, 2008 stated that the current "outdated" values must be reduced and that the precautionary principle must be considered. While scientists were invited to present proposals for new limits. This work is just now being published and show a completely different reality than the outdated that SSM will get stuck in. It is very surprising that our Swedish competent authorities, while denying that there is a collective scientific knowledge about health risks! Are we no longer part of the EU?

Blind man's buff Playing with our health needs once and for all stopped! We therefore demand that the SSM clearly state that the current reference value is only say at what level scientific covered acute health effects due to warming occurs, and therefore completely irrelevant in trials of long-term effects and non-thermal effects under the precautionary principle. We also demand that the SSM and Welfare follows the EU's requirements for risk assessment. We demand that the Swedish government finally gives the authorities new directions in which proper consideration is given to the international factual situation and the EU's clear requirements.

In connection with the Nuremberg trials after World War II was first formulated in a public code of ethics for medical experiments involving humans, Nuremberg 1947th Among other things, established that informed consent is required and that the risks to subjects must be minimized. It points out that each participant may at any time terminate its participation in an experiment and that the leading such to terminate it if it seems likely that a participant is injured. When will we suspend our participation in the ongoing radiation experiment?
