The Canadian initiative to stop Wireless Electrical and Electromagnetic Pollution29 March 2014
This article on Godeliève Richard, EHS, recently appeared in a Swiss magazine. Godeliève is Co-Director of a Swiss-American theater company which is finalizing a play, Innocenzo (after Innocenzo Marcolini), that will reach out to persons of all ages, raising awareness of the risks related to electromagnetic radiation and digital addiction. The play will be presented in both English and French-speaking countries at theaters, festivals, schools and events about the subject.

Children in Japanese city banned from using smartphones after 9pm
The technology curfew move reportedly aims to discourage children from spending an unhealthy amount of time on electronic devices such as smartphones as well as reduce on-line bullying via instant messaging apps.
Mobile tower radiation clips sparrows' wings
"I shouldn't have to pay an additional fee to stay on the grid that is already in place," Carter said. "I shouldn't be forced to pay an additional fee to maintain my health. And I refuse to pay an additional fee to keep my privacy."
A senior administrator for Halton's public school system is recommending board-wide filtering of its Wi-Fi network.
The suggestion follows at least a couple of incidents in schools where elementary children accessed pornographic websites.
France's Orange hit by new wave of suicides
Orange is now the name for what used to be known as France Telecom, a huge telecommunications firm that was hit by a wave of suicides.
Changes in the way a man's body responds to dopamine levels.
Jane Thompson, who has a smart meter installed in her Stevenage home, said: "It does feel that the house is now possessed by an ancient spirit that wants to steal from me."
Electromagnetic Radiation and Epilepsy
It may well be that directly induced currents and consequent electrical interference are a primary cause of epileptic seizures in some people, especially where the frequency of the imposed signal corresponds to trigger frequencies for the individual's epileptic characteristics.
Limit Wi-Fi in schools, group to urge public boardWaterloo Region District School Board
"He began grinding his teeth at night and clenching his jaw," she explained.
She soon discovered Kymani's anxious behaviour disappeared when she turned off Wi-Fi. Symptoms returned when the router was turned back on.
"I found that, lo and behold, it was in direct correlation."
"If you put iPads in every kindergarten class, you're going to cause a public health disaster," said Rodney Palmer, of Collingwood. "When they put the Wi-Fi in my kids' school, my kids got sick."
Stephanie Brathwaite said she was shocked to go online and read dire accounts of wireless dangers, ranging from headaches to irritability and cardiac symptoms. She said children are "essentially being used as guinea pigs."
These people are called Trustees, but how can they be trusted with the safety of children when they ignore the considerable body of science and ignore the precautionary principle?
I will be doing exactly the same with the Santa Fe School Board on Monday night.
In response to the constant, relentless response from administrations of all kinds to concerns about evidence of adverse health effects that the "evidence is conflicting", I say the following. Dr. Henry Lai's 2006 evaluation of 260 studies revealed that 70% of studies NOT paid for by the industry indicated health risks, and I always add the context that a 5% incidence would be considered "statistically significant".
This is in addition to the 2,300 studies that the US Navy already had in 1973 that demonstrated so much evidence of harm they were purposely classified in 1976 to "protect the industry". Then we have the evidence of 1,500 studies assembled in the 2007 Bioinitiative Report and the 1,800 studies in the 2012 report.
Certainly this litany of evidence is enough to be "precautionary"?

The Department of Interior charges that the FCC standards for cell phone radiation are outmoded and no longer applicable as they do not adequately protect wildlife.
The Director of the Office of Environmental Policy and Compliance of the United States Department of the Interior sent a letter to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration in the Department of Commerce that addresses the Interior Department's concern that cell tower radiation has had negative impacts on the health of migratory birds and other wildlife.
The Interior Department accused the Federal government of employing outdated radiation standards set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a Federal agency with no expertise in health. The standards are no longer applicable because they control only for overheating and do not protect organisms from the adverse effects of exposure to the low-intensity radiation produced by cell phones and cell towers ...
Study results have documented nest and site abandonment, plumage deterioration, locomotion problems, reduced survivorship, and death (e.g., Balmori 2005, Balmori and Hallberg 2007, and Everaert and Bauwens 2007). Nesting migratory birds and their offspring have apparently been affected by the radiation from cellular phone towers
New Yorkers are hanging up cell phones and plugging into landlines
Some feel they are released from the pressure of having to constantly respond to others; even celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker and Shailene Woodley shun the cell
Nobody asserts that wifi in schools creates a heating effect, so why did the Minister commission a report that assesses the classroom radiation levels from wifi and BYOD only against the dated heating standard (NZS2772:11999)?
Clearly her report answers the wrong question and proves nothing.
CitizensForSafeTechnology.org and others will present a great booth again this year "electroSMOG awareness" at downtown Toronto's Total Health Show April 4th to 6th. There will be plenty of handouts, tips, display items, and demonstrations. We answer lots of questions and meet a lot of people. It's very rewarding to reach out to people face-to-face the personal touch really promotes deeper understanding.
If you wish to volunteer to help at the show contact - Charlene firstname.lastname@example.org
