The Canadian initiative to stop Wireless Electrical and Electromagnetic Pollution
29 April 2013
'Following our submission to the inquiry, we have been invited (as representatives from Stop Smart Meters UK) to go and give evidence to the Commons Select Committee on Smart Meters on Tuesday, 23rd April.You can watch it anytime from the Parliament TV archive at http://www.parliamentlive.tv/Main/MeetingDetails.aspx?meetingId=13024 .
Hertzon wrote a letter to FPL denying consent for the smart-meter and hinted at a possible lawsuit for trespassing, unlawful monitoring and other charges. FPL now keeps an analog meter in his home that must be read by an employee.
Elisabeth Blomgren and Mona Nilsson visited last week Sandviken for a conversation about the risks associated with wireless networks. Mona Nilsson who has written several books on the subject argue that the links between radiation and cancer are difficult to ignore. For this reason, Elisabeth Blomgren is trying through a petition, to have the wireless networks taken away from local schools.
In the same pace as the students in Sandviken will each receive a computer, wireless networks are installed in schools. The technology is embraced, but there are those that raise warning flags. The strong radiation students are exposed to, can lead to cancer, memory problems and mental illness. So says journalist Mona Nilsson who recently held a presentation of the issue in Järbo.
It was after Elisabeth Blomgren from Järbo had read the book "Mobile phones and health risks" that she took action . The book about the many risks associated with the wireless technology frightened her.
- It's absolutely insane, they have wireless networks in kindergarten. I thought that if I do nothing now and my children are injured, I would never forgive myself.
Author of the book "Mobile phones and health risks" is Mona Nilsson. She is a journalist and founder of Radiation Protection Foundation, which works to inform of the risks of microwave radiation from cell towers, cell phones and wireless networks. For ten years, she has examined aspects of microwave radiation, and has written several books on the subject and countless articles.
A week ago she visited Järbo and held a presentation.
- I talked about the inadequate limits, wireless networks and children's sensitivity, it is known that they are more sensitive to radiation. They absorb more radiation and may be 50 times more sensitive than adult to carcinogens.
She believes that the information from the authorities goes is incorrect. She refers to hundreds of research studies showing that radiation is a health risk.
According to Mona Nilsson studies indicate that radiation can cause insomnia, cancer and can damage the DNA of cells. She draws parallels to the Swedish authorities' slow realization of the dangers of pesticides hormoslyr and DDT and asbestos, which was banned in 1982 because of the mapped connection to cancer.
- We can expect a public health disaster. A normal use of the cell phone today increases the risk of aggressive brain tumor. Children using wireless computers are at increased risk for insomnia, headaches, mental illness, impaired memory and eventually increased risk of cancer, says Mona Nilsson.
She also points out that the problem has been highlighted in far greater extent in other countries than
Elisabeth Blomgren's reaction after reading the book was to organize a petition, both in Sandviken and Gävle, to remove the wireless networks of schools.
- We have started a petition, I'm sure that politicians are more concerned about our children than on economic interests. I think that there are those who dare to say stop. Basically all signed after the lecture.
Erik Holmqvist, IT Manager at Sandviken. He says there are many studies pointing in both directions. Those who say that it is dangerous and those who say it is not. He follows the government counsel.
- We go by the recommendations of the radiation safety issues and which has stated that the networks to are not dangerous. In the agreement, students and parents sign when a computer checked out also inform the municipality about these recommendations.
Facts: So says Swedish Radiation Protection Foundation
Wireless technologies, products and installations that emit electromagnetic radiation can pose serious risks to humans and the environment. These risks are known since long time and have been documented increasingly and better over the past decade. Despite this, both citizens and decision makers, have low knowledge about risk, because industry needs are prioritized over public health and environmental aspects.
The radiation is linked to cancer and various neurological and chronic diseases in the long term. In the short term there is a risk of symptoms that have also become increasingly common in the community as the exposure has increased.
For the environment, the increasing radiation also a serious threat because it can harm wildlife including the impact on the orientation and reproductive performance, behavior and impaired immune function. Radiation also has been shown to be detrimental to plants.

The Authority does not agree with
The SSM (Swedish Radiation Authority) do not agree at all with Mona Nilsson. They say that wireless networks are not at all as dangerous as the Swedish Radiation Protection Foundation claims.
- We do not make the same estimation of the risks as they do. The only thing we have in common is a similar name says Jimmy Estenberg, at SSM.
He rejects reports that authority limits are set higher than what is appropriate. He believes that their own measurements have shown that students in a classroom are not exposed to more radiation from wireless networks than you do by staying in a city center. Other studies indicate low exposure, he says.
- We have done studies and measurements of exposure in the school environment, both in schools with and without wireless networking, and the difference is very small. What we are saying to schools is that there is no reason to opt out of wireless networks from a radiological standpoint. We believe that there are no risks.
The Authority's position is that radiation from wireless networks that people are exposed to is not dangerous. In the case of mobile phones, the exposure is higher and there is a tiny suspicion of increased cancer risk. According to Jimmy Estenberg however, there is no confirmed connection. Statistics from the 1970s onwards, shows no sign of increased risk, he says.
But according to Mona Nilsson is also about the studies that authority leans against is not quite free from the industry, which benefits from high levels. But this also rejects Jimmy Estenberg.
- This can not be and it is not either. I do not know why Radiation Protection Foundation presents that there would be no link. Our guidelines limit comes from the International Commission on Radiological Protection for non-ionizing radiation. Researchers there must not have any connection to the industry.
Andrew joins us from HPFB where he is currently the Director of the Bureau of Pharmaceutical Science in the Therapeutic Products Directorate. This is a return to HECSB for Andrew as, before joining HPFB, he was Director of the Drug Analysis Service and then Director of the Office of Controlled Substances both in the former Drug Strategy and Controlled Substances Directorate. Andrew has held numerous other positions in both Ottawa and the regions, including laboratory management positions with both Health Canada and the CFIA. He is also a graduate of the Health Canada Science Management Development Program and I am confident that Andrew's wealth of experience will serve the ERHSD and the branch well. I know he can count of all of our support as he takes on his new responsibilities.
Andrew will assume the position of Director General from Beth Pieterson, who retired from the public service on April 2. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Beth for her 4 years of leadership as the Director General of ERHSD and for her contributions to the health portfolio over her 23 year career. As the first DG of ERHSD, Beth played a vital role in promoting research and policy integration across the branch and the department and ensuring that that the science needed to support many of our policy objectives was carried out. Her commitment to people management, to science and to young scientists in particular is to be commended and her leadership and guidance will be missed.
Please join me in wishing Beth a wonderful retirement and in welcoming Andrew back to HECSB.

Dear Reporters and Editors of LA Times;
My name is Virginia Farver from Fort Collins, CO.. I want to share my Story with you, and why the Smart Grid-Metering is so very dangerous. I lost my Beautiful, Young Son from GBM-Glioblastoma Multiforme Brain Cancer on October 11, 2008. Rich, had attended SDSU ( San Diego State University ), and was working and living in San Diego at the time of diagnosis. Dr. Vrijish Tantuwaya, a Neurosurgeon from Poway, California told the family that his," Cell Phone was the cause." Dr. Richard Marschke, an Ocologist here in CO., told the family that this was," Not genetic."
On August 7, 2009 approximately 10 months after my Son's death I typed in,' Cancer Clusters.' The very 1st articles were about a - Breast Cancer Cluster on the UCSD San Diego campus. Many women in the Literature Building on campus were diagnosed, and many died from there disease. I cannot get some of the links to come up. If you type in,' NYTimes, 2009 UCSD Breast Cancer Cluster,' there is a link that you must read. In this link ,there is highlighted in blue - FULL REPORT. Dr. Leeka Khiefets from the - Electrical Power Research Institute - was commissioned by UCSD to write a report on this Cancer Cluster. Page 4 of this report, there have been many other cancer deaths than reported. Page 27, is a special Thanks to Jim Turman from SDG&E - San Diego Gas & Electric in California. Both of these people should have been Removed from conducting any investigations. This was a Complete Conflict of Interest!!! UCSD had an Epidemiological Report written, and the investigation stopped there.
I then saw articles about a,' Brain Cancer Cluster on the SDSU Campus.' I ended up on the floor. Rich, is the graduate student mentioned in these. I'll put the links below. I started to contact the SDSU Administration and found this futile. I then drove out to San Diego staying the whole month of October, 2009. I met with Professors Nancy Speckmann, and Farid Abdel-Nour off campus for meetings. Both Professors told me that Rich, would spend long hours in Nasatir Hall, Room 131. Rich, was a TA for Nancy Speckmann, and would meet students, grade papers, and be in this room on weekends studying. Nasatir Hall, room 131 is the Building, and room on campus where most of the cancer victims were located.
Afer arriving back home to CO., the SDSU Administration sent me an,' Epidemiological Report,' written by Dr. Thomas Mack. 3rd paragraph in this report, he mentions that he has," No known knowledge of Chemical or Radiation Concerns, and therefore are none." I immediately e-mailed Dr. Mack. Dr. Mack promptly called me at home. I asked Dr. Mack about a HUGE Cell tower directly outside of Nasatir Hall, Room 131. Dr. Mack denied this could be the cause, and brushed this notion off rather quickly. I then told him of," Everyones Concerns." Dr. Mack replied," they should be concerned." This comment made me furious, and quite frankly, made absolutely NO sense. Because of Dr. Mack's Epidemiological Report, the SDSU Administration will not conduct a Toxicology Study. These Professors requested one, and were denied. I have requested one on several ocassions, never receiving a response. I contacted the Governors Office, area Representative Marti Emerald, the Mayors Office, and many governmental agencies. This may answer,'Why,' I have not received any help:
I decided to look into this so called,' cell phone,' tower on my own. It is HPWREN - High Performance Wireless Research and Educational Network, a Backbone Node to the UCSD Supercomputer Center in San Diego. It is also GWEN - Ground Wave Emergency Network, with emissions known to hug the ground. Nasatir Hall, Room 131 is located on the bottom 1st floor of a 3 story building. HPWREN is connected to the Lambda Rail ( Grid ), Tera Grid, PRAGAMA Grid. Combined, these are the,' SMART GRID.' It is the Engineers and Scientists behind the grid who are developing Smart/AMI meters, Smart Dust, Drones, RNM technologies, among many others. These Grids are located on many college campuses across the US, and other Countries, forming a World Grid. There are 2 sites on the SDSU Campus. One on top of the Communications Building ( which towers above Nasatir Hall ), and one on top of the KPBS News Station on campus. Both are within 1/4 mile of each other, and are considered being located on the highest points of campus. HPWREN includes Homeland Security, DoE, DoD, DARPA, Air Force, Navy, NIH-National Institutes of Health, SPAWARS, NASA-Inmarsat Satellite, Emergency Services, and MANY HUGE Corporations. The University of Alaska is connected through the Grid system, with research through the HAARP facility in Alaska. HPWREN is funded by the NSF - National Science Foundation, OUR Tax Dollars: www.gi.alaska.edu/students/PARS

KNOWN SDSU BRAIN CANCER VICTIMS:
RICH FARVER - my Son. Diagnosed with GBM Brain Cancer, March 2008, died October 11, 2008 - 1 week after his 29th Birthday/ Nasatir Hall, Room 131, facing HPWREN cell tower.
LOU TERRELL - diagnosed with Primary Brain Lymphoma ( Brain Cancer ), 2008/ Nasatir Hall, Room next to 131 facing HPWREN cell tower
CHARLES CUTTER - diagnosed with GBM Brain Cancer, died June 18, 2009/ Nasatir Hall, Room 131, facing HPWREN cell tower
DWIGHT ANDERSON - diagnosed with Different Form of Cancer, and died/ Nasatir Hall, Room 131, facing HPWREN cell tower
MRS. KATHY O'HARA - diagnosed with GBM Brain Cancer, May 2008/ KPBS News Station on campus. Still alive, fall 2011, however not doing well.
MS. LAUREL AMTOWER - diagnosed with GBM Brain Cancer, November 2009, died August 29, 2010/ Arts & Letters Building on campus, right next to Nasatir Hall ( within yards ). Laurel died at the age of 44, and left behind a 12 year old daughter.
RICHARD FUNSTON - diagnosed, and died from GBM Brain Cancer in 1993 with cell tower present, and taken down in 1995. To once again, be replaced.
? POSSIBLE NEW VICTIM - SAMANTHA STAUBER - 20 years old with classes in Arts & Letters
After the death of Ms. Laurel Amtower on August 29, 2010 I contacted San Diego NBC Producer Paul Krueger. Paul said," Another one?" Paul, asked me to send in my informaiton, - SILENCE! My 1st experience with the tightly controlled main stream News. A reporter from the,' San Diego Tribune,' called me at home one day. This gentleman ( who would not reveal his name ), told me that this Story would,' Never get out in San Diego.' I asked," Why?" He replied," Because of MONEY." I was very thankful of his call.
This Story was Instrumental in the WHO - World Health Organization reclassifying Non-Ionizing Radiation to a Class 2B Carcinogen, May 2011, the same as DDT and Lead. This classification was Very close to being a Class 2A carcinogen. Ionizing Radiation ( XRays ), damage Cells or DNA instantly. Non-Ionizing Radiation ( ALL Wireless ), is ACCUMULATIVE, the more received, the more Cell ,or DNA damage. This is true for Cell phones, Cell towers, Microwave ovens, Power-lines, WI-Fi, Smart/ AMI Meters. Smart Meters emit PULSED Microwaves. Between 10,000, and 200,000 pulses per meter, per day, per household The human body tries to recover after EACH pulse. This will BLANKET our neighborhoods, and cities in RF Radiation!!
ALL cell phone manuals say to keep away from heads, and bodies. BlackBerry Torch manual ( no longer in production ): keep .98 inches away from heads, and bodies, and for Pregnant Women, and Teenagers to avoid putting these devices near their lower abdomens. Please Watch ALL: Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile cell phone commercials. The Industry Reps., were caught during hearings in Maine. These commercials no longer show actors with a cell phones being held near their heads, or bodies! Last week the Country of Belgium is now issuing warnings about kids using cell phones, and their addictions to wireless devices. A childs brain is not fully developed until their mid 20's.

The HPWREN cell tower is still on campus. There is an OUTdoor courtyard directly underneath this cell tower. I was on campus, daily for 3 weeks, fall 2011. I observed kids sitting under this cell tower for hours, day after day. There are newly constructed,' Fraternity Row Housing Units,' across the street from the KPBS News Station, and cell tower on campus. Again, watched Boys sitting on balconies for hours, and hours. Some of these new Fraternity units are newly adorned with metal windows, and metal balcony railings, which attract radiation. How many of these kids will become ill, or already have? Some form of Cancer, No doubt!! Many, without this knowledge!! I not only fear for these kids, I fear for Humanity!
Attached is a picture of this cell tower that I took Fall 2009. The cell tower is on top of the Communications Building, and Nasatir Hall, is located on the lower left in the picture. Nasatir Hall, Room 131 is the bottom 1st floor window. Fall 2011 this room was completely boarded up with cardboard lining the windows. Why? Is there something to hide? OF COURSE!!!! These,' Criminal THUGS knew, and know, how dangerous this HPWREN cell tower was, and IS!! Notice the DEAD TREE FOLIAGE on the surrounding trees. This answers Everything!
" I don't have to pay for it, and I don't have to go through the FCC"
" If I was the FCC, I would BUST these guys"
The,' Carlsbad Cancer Cluster,' involved many kids. Again, an 'Epidemiological Report,' was written. Dr. Thomas Mack was helping in this investigation. These epidemiologists are being paid I'm sure," Handsomely," for their efforts, all the the expense of our kids, and families lives. Had the proper investigations into this Cancer Clusters been done, the whole - SMART GRID, could have been avoided. There are High Tension Power-Lines that cross the,' Kelly Elementary Property,' and near residential areas. 1Toxin + 1 Toxin = 1000. TOXICOLOGY STUDIES ARE THE PROPER PROCEDURES!!! Epidemiological Studies are nothing but, mere statistics!
Rich, experienced many symptoms that I now know as,' Electro-Sensitivity Symptoms.' Headaches, Nausea, Heart Palpatations, Sinus Problems, ( Rich, was suffering from daily nose bleeds, and had a Dr's appointment for March 14, 2008, but ended up at Sharpes Memorial Hospital on the evening of March 13, 2008 with bleeding in the brain ), Endocrine Problems, ( Rich, was suffering from under arm sweating, which mysteriously disappeared after leaving SDSU ), Rashes, Memory or Concentration Problems. Rich, was applying for Law School in the California area at the time of diagnosis. I recall a conversation. Rich said," Mom, even if I get into Law School, I don't know if I can make it through?" I replied," Why, would you say such a thing?" He said," I cannot seem to remember things." Yet, another sign, if only I had known! This has DESTROYED my life, and the lives of my family. I have 1 remaining Son. These Symtoms are REAL, and should not be taken lightly!! Attached is a picture of Rich, when he 1st arrived in San Diego. The 2nd picture is of graduation. Notice the skin coloring difference between the two. He looks COOKED in his graduation picture, and WAS!! He is also squinting with his right eye in his graduation picture. This is where the tumor was located, the right frontal lobe. Rich, was 6'2", and very healthy!
A comforting thought to leave you with. With the release of 4G, and these Smart/AMI meters, we will," ALL be living in the same amount of radiation during a given day, as these SDSU Brain Cancer Victims." Many of whom, were not in this area of campus for long. Rich, 3 years, Laurel Amtower, 3 years.
I've heard by these Experts," End Stages for this type of radiation in our lives." 4G alone has Doubled all Cell, and Antenna strengths. Besides being exposed to a Cell Phone wave, there is now a DATA-WAVE.' Isreal, did not allow 4G.
