NEW FRENCH LAW SETS PRECEDENT
fields and electromagnetic hypersensitivity. While the new law does not
go nearly far enough, it is the first of its kind in the world. Among
its provisions are the following:
1. Anyone who intends to build one or more radio installations regulated
by the ANFR (France's equivalent of the FCC) must submit to the local
government, if requested by the mayor, calculations of electromagnetic
fields that will be generated. This information must be made available
to the public.
2. A national dialogue committee on levels of public exposure to
electromagnetic fields is created within the ANFR. This committee will
give information to all stakeholders. The ANFR will give annual reports
to the dialogue committee on the results of all electromagnetic field
measurements in France as well as measures taken to reduce exposure
levels at "atypical" locations where the levels are greater than usual.
The ANFR will compile a annual census of atypical exposure locations and
periodically report on measures taken to reduce exposure at such
3. Within one year from today, the ANFR will produce a municipal-level
map of all cell towers in France.
4. Any advertisement for cell phones must mention, clearly and legibly,
the recommended use of an accessory device that reduces exposure of the
head to radio frequency radiation. Violators are subject to a fine of
5. Advertisements promoting the use of cell phones without such
accessories are prohibited. Violators are subject to a fine of 75,000
6. Anyone selling a cell phone must provide, upon request, an accessory
designed for children under 14 years of age that reduces exposure of the
head to radio frequency radiation.
7. Wireless internet is prohibited in places dedicated to the welcome,
rest, and activities of children under 3 years of age.
8. Wireless access for internet in elementary schools must be disabled
when not in use for teaching.
9. One year from today, the government shall submit to the Parliament a
report on electromagnetic hypersensitivity.

"Warnings for safe use are already buried in the fine print of every device manual," said Young. "But a spokesman, for both Bell and Telus, has publicly responded to my Bill by saying there is 'no health risk'. That is wrong and they know it's wrong. They're behaving like the Tobacco industry did before scientists agreed that cigarettes cause lung cancer."
Ex-Microsoft exec calls out wireless industry on radiation issues
Excessive use of cell phones can trigger a host of health problems among users. According to a study, indiscriminate use of cell phone by indulging in non-stop talk for 20 minutes every day will cause hearing loss over a period of time
There are 25,000 brain tumour cases in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states and most of them are attributed to excessive use of cell phones, as per a recent medical survey.
Hydro-Quebec rocked by resignations amid smart-meter flap
MONTREAL Two Hydro-Quebec executives in charge of the contentious smart-meter program quietly resigned last week along with CEO Thierry Vandal, QMI Agency has learned.
The $1-billion smart-meter file has sparked boycotts and petitions over the safety of the devices and Hydro-Quebec's pushy installation measures.
And in all likelihood, just like with HUNDREDS of other fires, the utility cartel will attempt to deflect blame.
The number of meter fires, or as NV Energy calls them 'consumed meters,' is very, very small.
Out of the 1.24 million smart meters installed in Nevada, only 77 have gone up in flames. That's a "consumed meter" rate of .006 percent.
LETTER: Out-smarting the Smart Meter Fraud
Smart meters are just a dumb idea
I am tired of hearing the term "smart meters." To be fair, they should be called either cruel meters or, more accurately, an energy tax on seniors.
Who is at home during the day paying these high rates? Seniors! I can't believe our Liberal government thinks seniors should sit in their homes with the lights and televisions off, as well as turning their heat down in these cold winter days. These people, on fixed income, are the ones at home while these high-paid politicians go to Queen's Park and sit in warmth with the lights on, then dig into the seniors' pockets to help pay for the energy to keep them warm and comfortable.
Can at least one politician admit they are hurting the seniors by charging them extra money for energy? I have been a Liberal supporter for years, but I will have a tough time ever supporting them again.

The suit seeks a judgment against the officers and the city "in a fair and just amount sufficient to compensate (Bendis) for the injuries she has suffered, as well as such other relief as is just and equitable.
We just wanted to thank you again for taking so much time and effort in inspecting our place. Immediately after you left I moved Jo------ and his bed over to the other side of the room. Normally for his naps, he just rests, but doesn't sleep. On Friday he actually slept. Last two nights, also, he hasn't woken up.
We've also rearranged N----'s room and she says she is also sleeping better. We're looking into places to order the different protection screens/sheets you recommended.
I will speak to the maintenance man first and see what information he can provide.
Two weeks ago you gave a talk to the Huron Perth Women in Arriculture at Seaforth and
I was one of the ladies in attendance.
I was not new to the topic, but hearing that a cordless phone had so
much radiation, give me cause to think.
My husband HAD severe restless leg syndrome, till the point that it
was physically hurting him and keeping us both from sleeping. We were
thinking about sleeping separately. Our family doctor had given
different ideas and medication over the years, but nothing alleviated
So after this Women's meeting I put the cordless units away, without
telling my husband the reason. After a week I introduced my husband to
the concept of radiation from appliances and gadgets and if he had
seen any change.
Well; he had not slept so well in many years, and the some goes for me.
Thank you for helping us to make the healthy change to a life without
iPads and smartphones given to children to calm them down during a tantrum 'may damage their brains'
Is wireless technology a boon or disaster?

Reducing Electromagnetic Radiation from Wireless Sources
MRE, Feb 1, 2015 (Google translation)
The Seventh Chamber of the Paraná Regional Labor Court
(TRT-PR) determined payment of compensation to a Curitiba
technician who worked for fifteen years in the maintenance of
telephone towers and developed a rare type of bone cancer. The
antennas were not turned off during the execution of the service.
The company Nokia Solutions and Networks in Brazil
Telecommunications Ltd., formerly Siemens SA, will pay $
250,000 in damages plus annuity corresponding to 50% of final
salary. The decision can still be appealed.
The coach was admitted by the company in August 1986 and for
over 15 years conducted testing services, repairs and
installations in the signal transmission towers of the
company. In 2002, a tumor was found in the worker's right
thigh, which was diagnosed with chondrosarcoma, a rare type of
bone cancer. He underwent several surgeries, but ended retired
due to disability, age 37. Three other co-workers developed
the same type of cancer and died aged 28, 39 and 45 years.
The technical filed a lawsuit against the company at the 15th
Curitiba Court claiming that their health problems could have
been caused by direct contact with the electromagnetic waves
radiated by phone towers.
In the opinion of the judge of first instance was not in the
record sufficient evidence to establish a causal link between
the type of work and the disease, since cancer can have
multiple causes, such as diet and medications, among other
The worker appealed, arguing that the International Agency for
Research on Cancer (IARC), linked to the World Health
Organization classifies exposure to electromagnetic fields as
possibly carcinogenic to humans.
In their analysis, the judges gave the Seventh Class reason
the employee, noting that an expert report presented
information from the medical literature linking
electromagnetic radiation with cellular and genetic phenomena
that promote cancer. They also understood that the company was
wrong to omit as the prevention and monitoring of risks, in
addition to not have done exposure control of radiation worker.
"Considering the fact or evidence together, it considers that
the work activities developed by the author contributed to the
development of their disease (concausa), leaving configured
concausalidade link. Resta set the guilt of the defendant,
given that not arranged for the work to be developed without
risk to the health of your employee "it said judgment which
ordered the company to pay a lifetime monthly pension plus
