Ron Melnick Corrects 'Misinformation' in the NY Times
On May 31, the New York Times ran a piece in what it calls "The Upshot" on the National Toxicology Program's (NTP) cell phone animal study. The column is a regular feature in the Times that seeks to give readers context for stories in the news. This one was titled "Why It's Not Time to Panic About Cell Phones and Cancer." It was written by Aaron Carroll, a pediatrician at the University of Indiana School of Medicine. He expressed skepticism about the study results, calling the effort "imperfect."
Carroll's critique prompted a response from Ron Melnick, who led the study's design team before retiring from the NTP. In an eight-point rebuttal, Melnick corrected what he called "numerous and misleading statements."

BioEM2016: The NTP study
The link between Alzheimer's and RF-EMF exposure might be indirect one.
The RF-EMF has been shown, in some animal studies, to increase permeability of the blood-brain barrier but others did not find such effect. One possible mechanism of the RF-EMF effect of increasing permeability of the BBB could be the activation of cellular stress response in endothelial cells being part of the blood-brain barrier.

Spokesperson Marc-Antoine Pouliot said 22 of them either burst into pieces or flew off the wall over the span of about a decade.
The piece that is supposed to protect the meter from power surges can cause it to short circuit, Pouliot said.
Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to present, in both official languages, the following reports from the Standing Committee on Health from the 41st Parliament.
The first report is entitled, "Vaping: Toward a Regulatory Framework for E-cigarettes" and the second report is entitled, "Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Radiation and the Health of Canadians". Pursuant to Standing Order 109, the committee requests that the government table a response to each of these reports.
Again, these are from the 41st Parliament and I want to congratulate the members for the work done in the last Parliament

There have been numerous examples of environmental toxins that were considered safe until policy caught up with science. Tobacco, asbestos, plastics, pesticides (they used to spray DDT on school children to prove it's safety), thalidomide, artificial sweeteners and fructose to name just a few. Now we have children exposed to microwave radiation for 7 hours each day for 14+ years. There are at least a dozen studies that confirm 4 hours on a lap top can cause damage to men's sperm as well as damage to DNA.

Redford Residents: Smart Meters Are Making Us Ill

What I like most are the clear measurements of dirty electricty and wireless radiation. Dr. Laura Pressley and Andrew Lankes take measurements of a 'smart' meter, then (after it was replaced) of a safe analog. The effect is paradigm-shifting.
California - Wonderful News!
We just confirmed through 3 California Assembly sources (including one in Mr. Gatto's office) that this afternoon Mr. Gatto killed Assembly Bill 2788. AB2788 would have deregulated wireless siting for most of California, forced local governments to lease property to wireless carriers, and other really bad stuff.
This is a major victory for local governments in this state, and all of us and the citizens that rallied to the side of local governments can feel proud that we have, for now, retained control over rights-of-way and public property.

Subject: FW: Objection to the Forced Retirement of Prof. Olle Johansson from the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden
Dear Officers of the Karolinska Institutet,
Canadian long-time activists like myself were equally stunned - into disbelief- to hear of Professor Olle Johansson's forced retirement! Increasingly today, evidence of what Professor Johansson has been warning the world about for decades is percolating to the surface from what is now a large number of reputable scientists around the world! This is happening in spite of the enormously powerful and influential wireless and telecom industry's best efforts to co-opt all governments and conceal the truth! Tragically for all mankind, Industry's efforts are being assisted enormously by mainstream news media's indefensible silence on this, what truly amounts to, pandemic corruption, which is happening on a scale never before witnessed on earth!!
Given the above, how on earth can such a world-class medical research university, at this particular moment in history, justify the forced retirement of such a distinguished scientist who has been leading the battle for the truth about EMF for decades? Have you forgotten that since May of 2015, at least 220 of the world's top EMF scientists from 41 countries have signed the "International EMF Scientists Appeal"! Addressed to the Secretary General of the U.N., to all U.N.-member nations, and to the Director General of the WHO, the appeal urged them all to: "Protect Mankind and Wildlife from electromagnetic radiation and wireless technology," Let me repeat that: "Protect Mankind and Wildlife from EMF and wireless technology"! And you now decide to force one of the world's most knowledgeable and courageous scientists into retirement? If that is not odious, I don't know what is! Unless your esteemed university sees fit to reverse its decision, Karolinska's reputation will be tarnished forever! Scientists, medical researchers and activists around the world will always believe that industry has managed to corrupt you as well!

International call to support Prof. Johansson against forced 'early retirement'
Just at a time when the need for further investigation into EMR health effects is becoming more widely acknowledged, we hear that Prof. Olle Johansson is being "forced" into early retirement.
Unable to counter his expert findings, it appears promoters of wireless technology have adopted the strategy of applying pressure to the Karolinska Institute of Sweden at which Prof. Johansson resides. This previously resulted in a downsizing of his funding and research facilities. Nonetheless, this selfless and dedicated scientist has continued to publish ground-breaking studies such as the many linked in his biography below.
Now it seems, by attempting to have him dismissed from his post entirely, they hope to prevent further release of truthful and unbiased information to the public.
Apart from our free bimonthly newsletter, EMR Aware does not normally email our subscribers. However, this is a special case. The ongoing contribution of independent researchers such as Prof. Johansson is vital to a fair and balanced outcome for those affected by EMR, now and into the future.
If you are as concerned as we are, please take a moment now to email the Officers of the Institute listed below. Politely request that Prof. Johansson be allowed to continue his essential work for the benefit of all humanity.
And Karolinska Institute, I am writing to express alarm and dismay that you are contemplating removing Dr Olle Johansson from his post. I have been corresponding with the doctor for several years after I discovered my son was suffering from derangement brought on by microwave penetration. Many scientists, I am sure you are aware, are inferior people with narrow interests who have sold out for money or are lacking in humane values and suffer from moral detachment. You should be proud to have a real scientist in your Institute who always displays courtesy, sobriety and diligence - and who has steadfastly maintained respect for facts in the teeth of abuse and misrepresentation over many years. Would to God there were more proper scientists like Dr Johansson in England!
If you surrender to corporate pressure and sacrifice Dr Johansson, I believe you will be degrading your pursuits, forfeiting your good reputation and betraying the children and sensitive people of Europe and the world.

Trials and trends in caring for patients with electromagnetic hypersensitivities at Ontario's Environmental Health Clinic (EHC)
A talk by Dr Riina Bray BASc, MSc, MD, FCFP, MHSc, Medical Director of Women's College Hospital's EHC. Ecosphere Fair, Saturday, August 13 from 12:30 to 2 pm, at Jarry Park in Montreal.
Over the past 15 years the number of patients seen at the EHC has risen dramatically. It has been noted that these patients have health vulnerabilities and intrinsic and extrinsic predisposing factors that leave them at risk to the effects of radio/microwave exposures. Common symptoms, diagnostic testing challenges and mitigating measures will be reviewed in this talk. Biomarkers of exposure and limitations in this field will also be reviewed. There are gaps in knowledge in the medical community and general public, as well as large gaps in research regarding this medical phenomenon. Environmental assessments both at home and at work need to be interpreted and acted upon appropriately, so guidance from experts and support groups is essential. Cost of mitigation can also be a large hurdle and therefore pearls to reduce exposures are discussed. Finally, future research, public health initiatives and what health care providers can do, will be addressed
Dr. Riina Bray achieved first-class honors in chemical engineering, then earned her Masters of Science degree in pharmacology in the area of addictions and toxicology. She then studied medicine at the University of Toronto and did her specialty in Family Practice at UBC. She then completed a fellowship in Environmental Health at the University of Toronto. She has been Medical Director of the Environmental Health Clinic at Women's College Hospital and Associate Professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine for over ten years. She was Chair of the Environmental Health Committee of the Ontario College of Family Physicians for ten years and holds a Master's of Health Sciences (Public Health) in Family and Community Medicine. She has taught University level courses, mentored and taught hundreds of medical students, residents and peers in the area of environmental health.

Dermatologists now believe that regularly exposing the face to the light and electromagnetic radiation from smartphones can speed up ageing and wrinkles.
Doctors even claim they can tell which hand a person holds their phone in just by looking at which side of the face is most damaged.
I make a point of using Jerry Phillips' quote from Scientific American: re NTP Study
"But you have to realize that this issue opens up a much bigger can of worms than cell phones. If this radiation, this form of energy can interact with biological tissue then it's going to reopen a lot of what were supposedly settled issues regarding the safety of wireless communications. If we're going to be bathed in a whole new electromagnetic environment, how safe is it?"
