The British Journal of Cancer - Misleading Leukemia Risk

An urgent Press Release is available to download from  

The British Journal of Cancer and the CCRG have issues a misleading and in our view irresponsible press release stating that overhead powerlines don't raise the leukaemia risk in children. This is not supported by the paper they publish tomorrow and we explain why. There is a phone number on our Press Release for professional reporters to contact Alasdair Philips at Powerwatch today and tomorrow for comment/interviews.



Powerlines are still associated with increased childhood leukaemia risk

Their extra data tables (1962-1999) show a fairly consitent 1.5-fold increased risk to children living within 199 metres of 132 kV powerlines the type generally close to residential housing.

Glyphosate acts as a toxicant by activating voltage-gated calcium channels, the same mechanism activated by Electro Magnetic Fields

February 3, 2014

A number of people with these diseases (see  have reported apparent sensitivity to roundup herbicide and its "active" ingredient, glyphosate and there has been concern because the EPA has apparently already approved of allowing much higher levels of glyphosate in non-organic foods. I recently found a paper showing that glyphosate acts as a toxicant by activating voltage-gated calcium channels, the same mechanism activated by electromagnetic field exposure. There is no reason to doubt that such increased intracellular calcium levels should be able to up-regulate the NO/ONOO- cycle and therefore most if not all NO/ONOO- cycle caused diseases. I think that there is reason for concern here. It may well be the case that glyphosate may act synergistically with EMF exposures to together produce much higher pathophysiological responses.

Glyphosate is the primary active constituent of the commercial pesticide Roundup. The present results show that acute Roundup exposure at low doses (36 ppm, 0.036 g/L) for 30 min induces oxidative stress and activates multiple stress-response pathways leading to Sertoli cell death in prepubertal rat testis. The pesticide increased intracellular Ca(2+) concentration by opening L-type voltage-dependent Ca(2+) channels as well as endoplasmic reticulum IP3 and ryanodine receptors, leading to Ca(2+) overload within the cells, which set off oxidative stress and necrotic cell death. Similarly, 30 min incubation of testis with glyphosate alone (36 ppm) also increased (45)Ca(2+) uptake. These events were prevented by the antioxidants Trolox and ascorbic acid. Activated protein kinase C, phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase, and the mitogen-activated protein kinases such as ERK1/2 and p38MAPK play a role in eliciting Ca(2+) influx and cell death. Roundup decreased the levels of reduced glutathione (GSH) and increased the amounts of thiobarbituric acid-reactive species (TBARS) and protein carbonyls. Also, exposure to glyphosate-Roundup stimulated the activity of glutathione peroxidase, glutathione reductase, glutathione S-transferase, ã-glutamyltransferase, catalase, superoxide dismutase, and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, supporting downregulated GSH levels. Glyphosate has been described as an endocrine disruptor affecting the male reproductive system; however, the molecular basis of its toxicity remains to be clarified. We propose that Roundup toxicity, implicated in Ca(2+) overload, cell signaling misregulation, stress response of the endoplasmic reticulum, and/or depleted antioxidant defenses, could contribute to Sertoli cell disruption in spermatogenesis that could have an impact on male fertility.

Paul Héroux Sounds the Alarm

Anny Champoux - February 5, 2014
The Effects of Electromagnetic Fields on Health

In an interview with Viewpoint Laurentides, Paul Héroux, a physicist at the head of " In Vitro Toxicology Laboratory" McGill University, reports about the effects of electromagnetic fields on health .

In his career, Mr. Héroux has worked in the design of electrical systems for Hydro-Québec. "I also did a lot of work on the electrical properties of living tissues as well as on measures of electromagnetic fields in the environment and their relationship with cancer and the effects on cells," presenting himself on the phone.

Today, he teaches the effects of electromagnetism on health, as well as toxicology, at the Faculty of Medicine at McGill University.

Prediction from neurologists
At the question: "Are the citizens right to worry about their health regarding the installation of smart meters by Hydro-Québec", he replied: "Personally, I think they are right, but it is a matter of opinion," says the researcher.

Speaking of these health effects, the physicist says that is not something that suddenly hurts you. "It's not like a bullet or a dart. The consequences accrue over time. But there is a small number of individuals who are more sensitive than others - and who are our alarm bell."

According to him, neurologists who have studied the issue say that the consequences will happen like an erosion, and cause slight brain damage. "They predict a degeneration over time. The brain age more quickly. Imagine you accelerate the aging of everyone's brain by ten years. We'll become a little more stupid and will grow old mentally much faster. This is what neurologists believe."

Mr. Héroux said that this is not a unique situation. "We went through this with lead in our gasoline to sell gasoline with a higher octane index. With that, we probably did lower by five points the intelligence of all our children."


According to him, what actually happens is always a matter of interpretation and, of course, one must be skeptical. "Of course, I gave you my opinion and I deeply believe in it. But people from the electrical industry will tell you that the evidence from epidemiologists is unreliable, and will contradict everything I say."

"Engineers in the electrical industry are convinced that all epidemiologists from the World Health Organisation - who say that these electromagnetic fields cause cancer - are abusive because they arrived at a conclusion that does not suit them", said Mr. Héroux.

He added that the Institute for Research on Cancer in Lyon - the global authority on cancer - suspects that both the low-frequency and high-frequency electromagnetic waves cause cancer. "The best experts in the world are telling that to us and it is not compatible with the Safety Code 6 from Health Canada, which assures us that there is no problem."

He wonders "Is this schizophrenia?", before answering: "What the [federal] government says and what the World Health Organization says are not compatible. It doesn't make any sense", concludes Paul Héroux.

If you understand French, I'd recommend listening to this great radio show we had this Wednesday with powerfully convincing testimonials from several people whose health was mangled by smart meters (just the very tip of the iceberg of course). Hydro's spokesperson (a professional, soft-spoken liar) came across as an insensitive and mindless automaton denying, despite the incontrovertible evidence presented, that smart meters had anything to do with the torture endured by people right after these necrowave-spewing machines were installed. And the message was compellingly given to listeners: if you still have an analog meter DON'T let anyone change it.
 About 370,000 meters in central Montreal are located inside the houses and the key goal of our I keep my meter campaign is to get as many as possible of the clients with such an indoor meter to not open their door to installers. We hope at least 100,000 of them will resist - and thus help us derail this horror show before it spreads to the rest of Quebec.
Shipping Container Homes
Shipping containers can be purchased fairly cheaply and the solid metal construction should shield wireless radiation.
Persons using containers as shelters, would have to make sure that ground current electricity is not present, and ensure that windows and doors are well shielded.

Radioactive Fertilizer—The Surprising Primary Cause of Lung Cancer in Smokers

"In a person smoking 1 1/2 packs of cigarettes per day, the radiation dose to the bronchial epithelium in areas of bifurcation is 8000 mrem per year -- the equivalent of the dose to the skin from 300 x-ray films of the chest per year."

Remarkably, according to a report by the Florida Institute of Phosphate Research,9 American meat products and dairy may expose your organs to radiation doses that are equivalent to the dose received by smokers via cigarette smoke.

SMUD sued for negligence, public nuisance, and unfair business practices over utility smart meters 

A lawsuit against Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) has been filed in Superior Court of California.  The plaintiff, John Echols, alleges three causes: negligence, public nuisance, and unfair business practices related to the forced installation of utility smart meters.

Mr. Echols refused to allow the smart meter on his residence and refused to join the opt out program due to SMUD's discriminatory fees.  He declined having a smart meter because of the dangers of pulsed radiation that smart meters emit, and the health risks to his family.

SMUD charged Echols the opt-out fees despite his argument that he never opted out, and he never opted in.  SMUD eventually forced a smart meter onto his home, followed by cutting off his power completely, during a Sacramento heat wave last summer (2013). His power was eventually restored, but without a meter and his bills were estimated.

The situation continued with legal complaints made by Echols which went unresolved at SMUD.  In December Echols filed the law suit against SMUD.  The court filing can be found here:

In 2012 SMUD board members mocked customers who did not want smart meters on their home, and laughed about how much they'd have to pay to opt-out. A SMUD director said, "The $166 upfront will convince them they can really afford a lot of tin foil hats" [laughter]…Another director says, "But they are already wearing them!"

While the SMUD board was laughing all the way to the bank with federal stimulus funding for smart meters, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine called for a halt to wireless smart meters to protect public health.
