The Middle School teacher reported that she fell seriously ill after a wireless system upgrade in her school in Spring 2014. She described her cardiac symptoms during a May 28, LAUSD Common Core Tech Project meeting. Ms. Lawson also stated, "The students are having nosebleeds and the main offices are refusing to do incident reports. I have had two seventh grade students bleeding out of their ears."

This is the first accommodation in a US public school system for microwave sickness.
Microwave sickness, also known as electro hypersensitivity (EHS), is not widely recognized in the US. However, physicians in many other countries are familiar with this medical condition and the diagnosis is more common. EHS symptoms include: headaches, dizziness, anxiety, rapid heart beat (tachycardia) and irregular heart beat (arrhythmia), ear and nose bleeds, tinnitus, red and irritated eyes, increased mucous and upper airway congestion, itchy skin rashes, abdominal pain, poor focus and attention, memory and sleep problems.
In March 2012, the Austrian Medical Association recognized and developed EHS treatment guidelines. In the United States, adverse effects were identified before 1988 when a US Air Force Review stated that "Experimental evidence has shown that exposure to low intensity radiation can have a profound effect on biological processes."
The LAUSD Board of Education went ahead with a wireless technology plan in February 2013, even after they were presented with numerous letters from many noted medical doctors and researchers, including the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, imploring them to use wired technology in the classroom because of the health impacts from wireless radiation. See http://wifiinschools.com/lausd-testimony.html
Wireless LAUSD classrooms typically employ 30+ devices (iPads) in addition to an industrial-sized router. These devices all emit microwave radiation and represent an unprecedented level of exposure to children.
Decades of accumulated research show wireless radiation damages neurological, immune, and reproductive systems in addition to increasing cancer risk. Professor Olle Johansson, Karolinksa Institute, Stockholm Sweeden, has stated that wireless radiation exposure studies have indicated "irreversible sterility within five generations." As this damage is cumulative, the longer the radiation exposure, the greater the health impact over time.
"We are getting reports of headaches and cardiac issues from across the country. The time to act is now," stated a spokesperson for the National Association for Children and Safe Technology (NACST).
NACST is an organization dedicated to raising awareness of the health impacts of wireless radiation on children. They are calling for schools to use wired Internet only. Their website details both the accumulated research showing wireless radiation's acute as well as long term health impacts.

JUDGE RULES ELECTRIC UTILITY'S SMART METER OPT OUT FEES VIOLATE STATE LAW; PSREC REFUSES TO RECONNECT
PLUMAS-SIERRA RURAL ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE ACTED ILLEGALLY WHEN IT CUT OFF ELECTRICITY TO HART FAMILY
QUINCY, CA A utility cooperative in rural Northern California has been ordered by Plumas County Superior Court Judge Janet Hilde to:
" cancel the opt out fee and monthly fee for reading the analog meter, allowing Plaintiff (StopSmartMeters.org Director Josh Hart) to self-read the analog meter."
The decision last week comes 14 months after Plumas Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative (PSREC) cut the electric wires to the Hart household in February 2014 though the family have paid for their full electric usage minus the illegal "opt out" fees. During that time, they have been living without electricity in an all-electric home in the Sierra Nevada mountains, without either a fridge or hot running water, depending on a wood stove for heat, cooking, and heating water. The family is continuing to hold out and have refused to sign PSREC's proposed agreement that would have traded Mr. Hart's silence about the dispute over the utility's hazardous smart meters for restoration of electricity service. "We refuse to be extorted, coerced, or silenced," says Plaintiff and veteran anti-smart meter organizer Josh Hart. "It's about time PSREC is held to account for its flagrant violations of disability rights. The court's decision has vindicated our standing up to the utility and confirmed that PSREC is indeed violating the law. They must obey the law and reconnect services."
In the small claims court case brought by Mr. Hart in March, Judge Hilde found that PSREC and its General Manager Bob Marshall violated state discrimination law. The fees: $141 to start and $15/ month to use an analog meter, were found to be illegal under CA law as the utility levied a fee for what they knew was a simple accommodation of a physician-confirmed functional impairment, or disability the removal of RF emitting equipment from the premises.
Judge Hilde's decision states:
"Plaintiff presented the court with a letter from his physician, stating that he has a condition, Electromagnetic Field Hypersensitivity, which causes him to suffer from headaches and other medical symptoms when exposed to radio frequency from smart meters. Plaintiff also provided the court with copy of the California Public Utility Code section 453(b) which provides in part: 'No public utility shall prejudice, disadvantage, or require different rates or deposit amounts from a person because of ancestry, medical condition, marital status, or change in marital status, occupation, or any characteristic listed or defined in section 11135 of the Government Code'"
Though Judge Hilde has now ruled that the fees are illegal, and ordered PSREC to offer a self-read based electric service, General Manager Bob Marshall refuses to comply with the judge's order, and is refusing to restore electricity to the home. Marshall and the PSREC Board of Directors say they plan to appeal the case. Hart asks, "Is it really in the public interest to spend ratepayer money on expensive attorneys to continue to refuse paying customers, unreasonably deny service, and defend illegal and discriminatory behavior?"
When Mr. Hart attempted to attend the annual meeting of the cooperative and vote in the election for directors in September, PSREC officials threatened him with arrest for "trespassing," even though Mr. Hart was at the time a member and received an invitation to the event. "PSREC is retaliating against us for speaking the truth about their hazardous metering systems. Their continued refusal to reconnect our home, even in the face of community pressure and a judge's order is petty and vindictive, and is only driving more attention to an issue they'd probably prefer to sweep under the rug."
This is not the first time that local courts have sided with smart meter radiation poisoning victims. In 2012, a small claims judge in Santa Ana ruled that So Cal Edison replace an analog meter on the home of a woman who was made sick by the new wireless "smart" meter. A woman in Santa Cruz County settled out of court with PG&E after she brought a small claims case for reimbursement for thousands of dollars spent to shield her apartment against radiation that was causing tinnitus and other health problems.
This legal victory for the Harts and the broader Stop Smart Meters! movement contributes to the ongoing erosion of the legitimacy of smart meter "opt out fees" nationally. Earlier this week, the Arizona Corporation Commission voted to suspend such fees statewide, while legislation in the state of Vermont already prohibits such fees. "The fires, the health problems, and the recent simultaneous explosion of hundreds of smart meters in Stockton point to the fact that we should be abandoning the entire ill-conceived system not just be dropping the fees. Charging for the use of safe and secure analog meters, and disconnecting paying customers is a violation of the law and community moral standards," stated Hart.
PSREC has until May 7th to file an appeal.
We are seeking to raise $10,000 through crowdfunding to hire an attorney and compel the utility industry to comply with the law. Contributions to the legal effort (as well as solar panels and other off-grid equipment) are being gratefully accepted at StopSmartMeters.org/donate

Director, Stop Smart Meters!
We are very fortunate to have an expert in cancer research. Dr. Malcolm Paterson, move to BC, having retired after many years devoted to this topic. He is now offering his experience to help educate people about the harm posed by wireless devices.
Over the last couple of months he has made several presentations, and has graciously offered use of his power point to anyone who might find it useful. It can be found at http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/EM Age Sleeping Giant.pdf along with his CV.
If anyone has any questions you may reach him at him email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Paterson wants this power point to be used and shared widely.
The overall cost of filling our living environments with a dangerous wireless toxin are likely to be massive and may endager the entire medical system.
So-called 'smart devices' that use wireless technology are harmful to human and animal biological systems and need to be avoided.
