The Canadian initiative to stop Wireless Electrical and Electromagnetic Pollution

23 May 2013


MILWAUKEE -- For years, scientists insisted there was no connection between cell phones and cancer, but now some credible experts are re-evaluating that position.
A nurse who works in the brain injury unit of a physical rehabilitation hospital said, in the past year, she is suddenly seeing more people coming in with brain tumors and noticing the patients are younger and younger

Low levels of pulsed microwave radiation emitted by today's cell phones create tiny hotspots -- as much as 7 degrees Fahrenheit -- in cow brain tissue kept alive in the laboratory. Scientists understand that warming the brain should be avoided at all costs, as this can lead to nervous system damage, hearing loss, and potentially, cancer.


In the face of mounting evidence of increased risk for malignant brain tumors with cell phone use, including a recent Italian court case that was won proving cell and cordless phone use was the cause of a man's brain tumor and the banning of sales and advertising of cell phones to children in the country of Belgium, Rep. Andrea Boland (D) Maine, re-introduces The Children's Wireless Protection Act, a legislative bill to inform Maine consumers of the possible health risks associated with cell phone use.
Why are record numbers of young women being diagnosed with breast cancer -- a disease that's typically associated with older age?
Is that happening because younger women are using strong 'possibly carcinogenic' microwave transmitters (cell phones and cordless phones) close to their chests?

WASHTENAW COUNTY: Area residents express concern over DTE Energy's smart meters

Re your link to the WHO and IARC "report" questioning the validity of EHS: as yet, many members of the WHO have been unmotivated to look at this condition in anything but a prejudiced manner. Indeed, former Norway Prime Minister and Director-general of the World Health Organization Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland suffers from electrosensitivity. When she came forward, certain other members of the WHO downplayed and dismissed her EHS as unsubstantiated and therefore not worth noting. She has not been affiliated with the WHO since 2003.

As a populous organization, prejudice is alive and well in the ranks of the WHO, and debate is coloured by a desire to avoid unleashing information about very disturbing developments in research since their reports in 2002 and 2006. Their overall conclusions do not yet show a clear understanding of the condition, which is very real, and very much due on our increasingly Wi-Fi riddled environment.

Very recently, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) released its detailed evaluation of the cancer risks associated with RF radiation, which serves as the rationale for designating RF as a possible human carcinogen. The IARC monograph comes close to two years after an invited panel of experts from 14 countries reached this conclusion following an eight-day meeting at IARC headquarters in Lyon, France. The Monograph states: "Positive associations have been observed between exposure to radiofrequency radiation from wireless phones and glioma (lethal brain cancer) and acoustic neuroma." (p. 421).

According to Dr. Joel Moskowitz, Department of Public Health, UC Berkeley, "the World Health Organization Monograph released last week is likely the most significant governmental health report ever published about mobile phone radiation. All governments should study this report and follow the precautionary principle to take appropriate actions including educating the public about safe use."

Here are just a few articles, reports, and websites to educate yourself about Electrohypersensitivity (EHS).

Of the six audios I would recommend listening to them in the order of:
Dr. Andrew Goldworthy (Interview) - on the actual biological mechanism whereby electrosensitivity occurs
Camilla Rees - of http://electromagnetichealth.o... (well worth a visit) speaking to Dr. Ronald Hoffman MD on electromagnetic health, and what's happening world-wide.
Fevzi Turkalp - The Gadget Detective about cordless phones and other sources of electrosmog.
Dr. Andrew Goldworthy (Conference) - a talk given by Dr Andrew Goldsworthy at the ES conference in October 2009. He discusses the underlying mechanisms of the many symptoms associated with Electro sensitivity.
George Carlo Irish Radio - Here is a short clip of George Carlo on Irish radio, being given a bit of a grilling by the presenter.
Burlington vs. Fox - Electrosensitivity-UK Chairman Michael Bevington argues that claims of scare mongering by electrosensitivity charities are unjustified and that the dangers and practical difficulties of uncontrolled electromagnetic exposure are being underestimated. Co-author of the Sense About Science brochure, Making Sense Of Radiation, Elaine Fox (Essex Study) argues otherwise.

Virginia: Smart Opt Out

Great news, Virginia customers of Dominion Power now have the right to opt out of the smart meter.  If you have one already or receive one before May 1, 2014 you may opt for a digital meter that has no RFR emitting from it.  It has to be read monthly by a meter reader for the customer to be billed.  They want to charge for this and intend to present this to the State Corp Comm.  I have a call into their PR department with some questions but after I talk to them I intend to do a press release.

New EMF book needs a publisher

My book on electricity and life, which I have been working on for over
ten years, is finally written.  If anyone has connections in the
publishing industry, or can otherwise help me get this book into print,
please contact me.  The book explores what electricity is, and tells the
complete story, which people do not know, of how its use has affected
all life from the 1700s until today -- from static electricity to
wireless technology.

Crap computers in a crap box: Smart-meter blackouts risk to UK

A hacker could therefore crack the wireless communications between the meter and the supplier, and send his or her own mischievous messages back to base, or commands to other meters, it is claimed.  After buying the test samples through online auction sites, Jones wanted to find out what made the electronics tick. He said he discovered the protection against hardware tampering was far less stringent than that applied to comparable consumer security products, such as an Xbox game console.  "Smart meters are essentially crap computers in a crap box," Jones claimed.
Take back the smart meters
Toronto Star

With smart-meter charges coming to Ontario hydro bills on May 1, I will now be billed an additional 79 cents per month for my so-called "smart meter"? We were told that the meter would allow us to monitor and adjust our hourly use of electricity.
What on Earth is Happening to our Children
Hi The Therapy Group
In answer to the question asked in your article (What on Earth is Happening to our Children?), you may find many of the answers within The Bio Initiative Report .  This was written by nineteen scientists and ten medical specialists, all who are very knowledgeable about the health effects of electro magnetic radiation.
Yours sincerely
