Get Rid of Those Dangerous Meters!
This is a very important EMF video showing residents from Ulster County, New York State, asking their County legislators to hold 'health and safety' hearings about "smart" meters.  The testimonials and evidence of serious harm being caused by smart meters makes this entire 43 minute video well worth watching.

RF/microwave exposure - more evidence that it is a universal bio-hazard

More evidence that EMR from mobiles, WiFi, DECT, etc, has adverse effects on life

Smart Meters - The DDT of this Century?

The Maine Public Utilities Commission is scheduled to conduct hearings Oct. 30 and 31.

A final body of evidence hearing starting at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 30 is expected to include oral testimony
via teleconference. Opponents of smart meters arranged for testimony from Dr. Girish Kumar from India, a professor in electrical engineering who specializes in cell tower radiation hazards and other technology; and Dr. Lennart Hardell from Sweden, an oncologist and epidemiologist who is considered an expert on cell phone-induced brain tumors and radiofrequency technology. "These two witnesses were selected for oral testimony," McGlauflin explained.
[McGlauflin is attorney with Petruccelli, Martin & Haddow, Attorneys at Law, of Portland, who represents complainants.]

Ed Friedman, with the Richmond-based Maine Coalition to Stop Smart Meters (, said, "This is sort of the DDT of this century. This is one of the most toxic issues of our time.

Reportage : Antennes Relais, un sujet électrosensible

Here is a (video) report of two young French journalism students :

Totally electrosensitive/Class Action

I know this is a long email, but about half of it is coverage throughout the year from our local paper.
It's been a while since I sent an email out to this email list.  Just wanted to let you know, I haven't crawled into a cave and disappeared, but I have to admit, things have been DIFFERENT, to put it you may know, the symptoms of my cell phone use have progressed into full blown electrosensitivity and I have spent much of my time, energy and resources this last year and a few months moving no less than 4 times trying to get away from EMR (electromagnetic radiation as emitted from wireless devices and infrastructure) and going to court twice with land lords over this issue.  I have to admit, it is difficult get away from wireless signals.  The first move was to get away from a cell tower, so I went from my city of Santa Monica into the woods of unincorporated Los Angeles County, only to be re-introduced to a new and personalized, "mini cell tower" known as a "smart meter" waiting unbeknownst to me, on my new and otherwise beautiful apartment.  The smart meter roll out has made it nearly impossible for me to inhabit even this wooded, seemingly harmless, rural, area of Los Angeles.  So I feel my back has been up against a wall and it is time to stop running and start taking a stand. Actually, I have found incredibly, there really is nowhere TO run to that is not saturated in EMR.   So out of total desperation, with my back up against an EMR "wall", I have turned to legal action against a ginormous corporation…SoCal Edison, our electricity provider and have organized a class action lawsuit with 95 Edison plaintiffs, secured a contingency law firm and will be filing hopefully in early 2013.  We may issue a press release when we do so, to try and get more plaintiffs.  We also believe this law suit has the potential to go statewide, incorporating all of the IOUs (investor owned utilities) in the state of CA.  I will certainly keep you posted on that.
Although there were many violations to pick from, the basis of the suit is going to be smart meter/smart grid and health effects, (law firm's decision) with the hopes of adding the other grievances down the road, such as fire hazard, privacy invasion and fee charging NOT to invade your health and privacy.
By giving Power Point presentations in various neighboring towns and cities and with the help of our local news paper, The Topanga Messenger, our town of Topanga has achieved the highest smart meter opt out rate per capita (unofficial report from Edison) in Edison (our utility) territory, along with Santa Barbara and Ojai.  Raising awareness through the presentations and with the help of the local paper, flyering, mass mailings, email and basic word of mouth, we were able to garner the 95 plaintiffs against SoCal Edison, many of whom are NOT Topanga residents.
In case you too would like to raise awareness in your area and sue your utility, here is a link to the Power Point Presentation, compliments of our sister educationally focused non profit group,    Please click on the below link or you can always retrieve it from our new website devoted to our class action smart meter law suit!!
Smart Meter Power Point Presentation...
We may not be able to bring this suit under our non profit, The Peoples Initiative Foundation, so for the moment, we are utilizing our newly formed group for the law suit/s,
Yes, the film is coming along, but admittedly, it's been difficult to work on when one is sleeping in one's car and unable even to inhabit one's own dwelling due to electrosensitivity.  It will however get done if it's the last thing I do.
If you know of anyone in Edison territory who is experiencing now or has experienced in the past, health effects of any kind from smart meters or smart grid and who might like to join our suit, please feel free to pass this email on to them.  Lack of funds should not be an issue for anyone.  We are trying to raise money for those who cannot afford court filing costs or other costs which may or may not be covered by the contingency agreement we are currently negotiating with the law firm.

If you would like to donate to our non profit which has been raising awareness and educating on this issue, please do so at:

Cordless phones are more of a health risk to young people than mobiles, according to new university research.

This is new and very important information from Dr. Mary Redmayne and her coworker's research in New Zealand and Australia!

Cordless phones are more of a health risk to young people than mobiles,
according to new university research.

In a study of almost 400 Wellington intermediate pupils, adjunct Victoria
University researcher Mary Redmayne found pre-teens were more likely to
suffer headaches if they made long or frequent calls on cordless phones or

The research, to be published in theEnvironmental Health journal this week,
also found high users of cordless phones more commonly experienced
tinnitus, or ringing in their ears.

In a separate study, the PhD candidate discovered year 7 and 8 students
talked on cordless phones for far longer than on their mobiles, meaning it
was the home line exposing them to the highest doses of potentially harmful

"People are pretty poorly informed about how this technology works - many
people don't realise that cordless phones are actually cellphones," Ms
Redmayne said.

"Modern cellphones use the lowest amount of power that they need to
transmit, but a cordless phone always works on full power."

Her population-adjusted research found a significant association between
teens' radiofrequency exposure and short-term health issues - but
international research suggested the long-term health risks were far more
serious, she said.

"The highest category of use - over half an hour a day - in many studies
has shown an increased risk of glioma, a malignant [brain or spine] tumour
that is often fatal. Several studies have also shown an increased risk of
acoustic neuroma - a little tumour on the nerve between the ear and the

Other research papers showed male fertility was also adversely affected,
this time from carrying a cellphone in a pants pocket. While many held that
the science was inconclusive overall, Ms Redmayne said governments and
individuals should be paying attention. "There was certainly enough to be
concerned about."

Sophie Walker, of the National Centre for Radiation Science, who advises
the Ministry of Health, said the latest research showed conclusively that
radiofrequency radiation had an effect at the cellular level. "But it's
very hard to say whether that translates into things like headaches or
short-term effects people report . . . it's a very hard link to make."

The jury was also still out on long-term health effects. "Radiofrequency
has only been used within the wider population for the last 30 years, so
true long-term studies are really still under way. Really conclusive stuff
hasn't yet been established."

But there was no doubt such a robust study showing irrefutable evidence
that radiation had negative health effects would be taken seriously by
scientists and governments. "It would have effects across the entire world."

This counters the usual criticism that 'it isn't good science' unless it is peer-review published.
The US annual cost for autism is reported to be $137 billion.
 That compares to the EU annual cost for cancer (105 billion euros/$147 billion USD)
 and to heart disease ((165 billion euros/$227 billion USD).
Staggering costs, and the prevalence of autism now in the US is one child in 88
 (one child in 50 by 2012 estimates that include the 8 yr and younger cohort).
 In 1975, it was one child in 5000.  This is a 100-fold increase.  
It parallels the explosive rise in wireless technologies and their pulsed RFR.  It should be
considered another possible risk factor for autism, autism spectrum conditions and ADHD.


New evidence obtained by New York Post on ELF claim of Navy Yard Killer

"I fear the constant bombardment from the ELF weapon is starting to take it's[sic] toll on my body," confided Alexis, an honorably discharged Navy reservist and a Department of Defense computer consultant.

Rather than an ELF weapon, this person may have been adversely effected by microwave radiation from Wi Fi, cordless telephones, cell phones and antennas!

Strokes increasing among young people, study finds

LONDON -- Strokes are increasingly hitting younger people and the incidence of the crippling condition worldwide could double by 2030, warns the first global analysis of the problem.

More WiFi, more cell phones, more towers, more wireless radiation, more strokes!

How Cell Phones Affect A Child's Brain

How is this possible? After all, headlines have repeatedly assured us that there's little to worry about, because we do not face an epidemic of brain cancer—yet. In fact, the brain cancer story remains complex, because the disease has a long latency—up to four decades—and because past uses and users differ radically from current ones. But evidence on dangers to pregnancy and reproduction from cell phone use are mounting.

Belgium - New regulation for the sale of mobile phones as of 2014

As of 1 March 2014, mobile phones that are specially designed for young children may no longer be introduced to the Belgian market. This concerns customised mobile telephones suitable for children younger than 7 years of age, for instance having few buttons and a shape attractive for children. Additionally, from this date forward, no advertising may be made for mobile phone use among the same age group.

She can even tell when someone is carrying a cell phone. She feels pressure in her head "tighter and tighter," like someone is using a blood-pressuremeasuring device, she says. She gets heart palpitations, has trouble focussing, gets tinnitus and her legs become rubbery.

She suffers from hypoxia, oxygen deprivation caused by a thickening of the blood.
