Global Union Against Radiation Deployment from Space (GUARDS)

Five companies are gearing up to provide high-speed global WiFi coverage from space within the next three to four years. This would be an ecological and public health nightmare, according to a recently-formed international coalition: the Global Union Against Radiation Deployment from Space (GUARDS).

"This is stupid, and again the point is how we got this far is irresponsible," Supervisor Michael Antonovich said.

Supervisors approved a motion to stop construction at fire stations and study the issue further. They will also request the Department of Commerce to approve an extension to be able to get federal money in the future.
County Supervisors unanimously halt construction of toxic cell towers
Thank you for all of your hard work and support over the past weeks as we have demanded a voice in our own health and safety at our fire stations and an end to sneaky back room deals. Together, we have won an important battle, but the war is not over. We will keep you all apprised of ongoing developments.
Many thanks to all the persons who have worked with firefighters over the last ten years to show them the dangers of cell phone masts etc..

French Creek mother pleads her case against cell phone tower


Rajasthan government today said that it will carry out a research on the alleged ill effects on public health by radiations emitted by mobile telephones

Health Minister Rathore said that as per the research by Jawhar Lal Nehru University scientists, people living in the 300 metres radius of mobile towers showed headache, skin, eye and cancer diseases.

Cell Tower Opposition Mounts

The Scrantons sent information to the Grizzly that outlined research relating to the health effects of radio frequency, electromagnetic frequency radiation and microwave radiation in relation to cell towers. The document states that some of the dangers include cancer, memory disruptions, insomnia, genetic mutations, brain disorders and more.
Hi Andre,

The following is an excerpt from the document I submitted in June 2013 to the

World Health Organization Call for Examples of Good Risk Management Practices.

People's Republic of China

In the WHO's EMF database for the People's Republic of China there is a review by Cao (2007) documenting the findings of general EMF-related health research in China from 1994 to 2006.

From the total of 383 Chinese papers investigating EMF biological effects in the China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) databank (this figure excludes papers investigating: EMF medical treatment; EMF prevention; EMF regulation, environmental EMF exposure assessment; and restricted People's Liberation Army research papers on the topic), it is stated that there were 109 epidemiological studies. 108 of these noted biological effects as a result of exposure.

In the epidemiological studies reviewed, 32 were for exposure levels higher than EMF exposure limits for members of the general public in China. The other 77 papers were for exposure levels lower than public exposure limits in China. Details of these exposure limits provided by Chiang (2009) are given below (Table 1).

Source: Chiang (2009).

1st class exposure limits: Exposures below these levels thought to be safe for permanent exposure and all people (including infants, pregnant mothers, patients, older people, etc.).

2nd class exposure limits: Exposures below these levels acceptable for short-term exposures (factories, parks, recreation spaces, etc.). Living quarters, hospitals, schools, kindergartens, etc., not allowed to receive such exposures.

Health effects for the 108 epidemiological studies that reported effects included: abnormal ECG; disorder of immunoglobulin; miscarriage; neurasthenia; poor sleep quality; and sperm dysfunction. Quoting Cao (2007): "No matter what the exposure level may be, lower or higher than [the Chinese] EMF exposure limits for public, health effects had been reported in these papers. ..."

Actual exposure levels for the general public in China are well below the rigorous Chinese General Public Exposure Limits. Chiang (2009) remarked that in 3 Chinese cities assessed around 1% of the urban population was exposed to levels >1V/m or 2 μW/cm2, and that "Only a very small percentage may be exposed to levels comparable to the [Chinese] limits (in most cases for short time only)." ...
