I Am an EMF Refugee

And of course, I had all the digital toys to accompany this persona: A creative director's dream of a Mac computer system, the smartest smart phone of the moment, the fastest of the fast wireless networks, the streaming tunes, the apps for that, the iEverythings and the incessant surge of digital pings directing and announcing my every move.

That was my life until a few years ago. And now, I am an EMF Refugee.

Neurosurgeon Reveals Radiation from Wi-Fi, Smart Meters and Cell Phones Cause the Blood-Brain Barrier to Leak

Their results over time have been both consistent and worrisome: Exposure to radiation, including that from cell phones and wi-fi, causes leakage in the blood-brain barrier — the brain's first line of defense against infections and toxic chemicals.
Do Cell Phones and Wi-Fi Fields Harm Our Body?

An excellent interview with Dr. Martin Blank, one of the world's leading scientists who studies the biological effects of electromagnetic fields.

"There are limited things you can accomplish, but I think one of those is to protect the children. The children are most vulnerable. They are the ones that are going to suffer the most, especially with this push to do so under the guise of good education.I think the introduction of Wi-Fi in schools is sinful. It's criminal. Good education doesn't need this. There are ways to bring these programs in without this technology. Generations have actually learned better without this. There's absolutely no need to have children sit there with this exposure for however many hours they keep it on. They could bring in the programs by cables, or books, but they don't need Wi-Fi. I think children are going to succumb to this in larger numbers, and we're going to see a higher incidence among children of things like brain cancer. It's not high yet, but I think it's going to get much higher."

Maternal and Infant Mortality Rates in the US Are a Tragic Embarrassment

According to data released from the Institute of Health Metrics, there are 28 maternal deaths for every 100,000 births in the U.S.4 This number is a drastic 22 percent increase, up from 23 deaths in 2003.5,6 Compared to 1990, the maternal death rate in the U.S. has more than DOUBLED.7
Is wireless radiation partially responsible for these addition deaths?

Smoking Damages Your DNA for Decades

Where scientists once thought the genes you were born with were the genes you were stuck with throughout life, now they have identified changes to your DNA, called methylation, that affect how your genes are expressed or may modify the way those genes affect your health.
Is wireless radiation causing similar damage and will it cause harm for years to come?

Omega-3 prevents myelin degeneration in rat foetuses exposed
to radiation.

The aim of this study is to investigate the protective effect of antioxidant omega-3 fatty acid (FA) on demyelinisation and degeneration of nerves in central and peripheral nervous systems (CNS and PNS) of rat foetuses.
In conclusion, radiation increases demyelinisation and degeneration of nerves in the rat foetuses' CNS and PNS. Omega-3 FA prevents myelin and nerve degeneration in rat foetuses in low-dose radiation exposure.
Seeking Documents to attach to ou MA smart meter docket due by Oct 19th

I am seeking documents to attach to the docket in MA to extend the Worcester smart meter pilot program for 2 more years, especially statements that have been compiled in other states that are already in the public domain.

We will be challenging the claim by Ngrid: 

The results of the Pilot to date, as filed in the Company's Smart Energy Solutions Interim Customer Evaluation Report (filed February 24, 2016 in D.P.U. 10-82), have shown that customers have noticeably benefitted from their participation in the Pilot, including peak and average load reductions, and measurable bill savings.

"The Smart Utility Meter market started with Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) as a way to reduce labor cost," explained Joe Madden, Principal Analyst at Mobile Experts LLC. "More recent Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) has opened up much more value for utilities, as they can control individual service, offer differentiated pricing, and manage their services more effectively."
Peco presented as a witness a Harvard-trained physician, who testified there was no reliable medical evidence linking smart meters to the ailments Kreider said she suffered: elevated blood pressure or heart rates, sleep interruption, and Guillain-Barre syndrome.
Comment - With the vast amount of scientific evidence that shows adverse health effects from microwave radiation, it seems that this physician should be investigated for perjury, a serious criminal offence!
Over 9,000 smart meters aren't communicating properly with Hydro One in Bancroft.

According to a report submitted by Hydro One to the Ontario Energy Board (OEB), there are 110,000 Hydro One customers in Ontario that are deemed hard to reach, and 7,695 of them are in Bancroft. There are also 1,337 customers in Bancroft that have poor automatic meter reading (AMR) networks, meaning their meter communications with Hydro One are "consistently unreliable."

New iPhone Will Have No Headphone Jack

The new iPhone 7 just hit the market, sans a headphone jack. Apple says radio frequency (RF) exposure can be reduced by carrying phones at least 5mm from your body and using the built-in speaker phones or wireless AirPods. But experts say one is as bad as the other, that your brain cancer risk increases, and that it will take 20 years to determine the full biological impact exposure to these devices has had.


FBI Warns Public on Dangers of the Internet of Things

The FBI has a rather different approach towards the Internet of Things, saying that users should deal with IoT devices with caution; otherwise they should keep it off the internet. In a Public Service announcement issued last week, the law enforcement agency discussed the potential security risks of using interconnected devices such as smart light bulbs, connected cars, smart fridges, wearables, and other home security systems. The PSA included network connected printers as well as fuel monitoring systems.

Smart Meters, Dr. Perry Kendall and EMFs Generally

Dear RDN Directors,

You probably are aware that in recent weeks I have sent various EMF-related
emails to the President and Executive members of UBCM. I am still waiting to
hear back from them.            

You likely know that, in late 2011, the UBCM voted to urge the BC Government
to impose a moratorium on the roll-out of 'Smart' meters in BC. Had BC's
PHO, Dr. Perry Kendall, been knowledgeable about the kind of "low-level,
pulsed, NON-thermal microwave frequency radiation" (EMFs) 'smart' meters
emitted, and had he known that inside each and every 'smart' meter are two
(2) pulsing microwave transmitters - not just one (1), which is what
electric utilities want the public to think,  Dr. Perry Kendall would have
recommended to the BC Government that 'smart' meters, which emit a Class 2B
(Possibly carcinogenic) form of pulsed, NON-thermal microwave radiation,
should not be allowed in BC.

Years ago, Dr. Perry Kendall should have known that the main transmitter in
all 'smart' meters is the 'LAN, which stands for Local Area Network.' This
transmitter irradiates on the US-military-designated 'very dangerous (to
humans) frequency' of 910 MHz, and irradiates for distances of up to 3 Km
(almost 2-miles)! In and of itself, this means that each home's 'smart'
meter will irradiate every single home in a 'meshed-networked' community
(which range in size from 500 to 5,000 homes)! In turn each home will be
irradiated by every other home's LAN transmitter in the community!

Dr. Perry Kendall should also have known that the 2nd pulsing microwave
transmitter inside all 'smart' meters is called the "ZigBee," which
'operates' (spews its pulsed NON-thermal microwave radiation) on the US
Military-designated 'most dangerous frequency (to humans)' of 2.4 GHz - the
same frequency on which microwave ovens cook/burn food and heat/boil
liquids! The ZigBee's sole job is to communicate with and control all of the
15-or-so 'smart' appliances electric utilities expect will be in all homes
eventually. This statement alone means that there will be, including the
ZigBee transmitter itself, some 16 NEW pulsing microwave transmitters on or
inside every home or apartment! In even the smallest community of just 500
homes, this means an additional 8,000 new pulsing microwave transmitters.
And the unsuspecting public are not aware of this! This is absolutely
downright criminal! Add to these 8,000 "ZigBee" or "ZigBee-compatible"
transmitters the LAN transmitter on each of the 500 homes, and even the
smallest community of just 500 homes will have a total of 8,500 pulsing
microwave transmitters - none of which were there prior to the advent of
'smart' meters. Thank you Dr. Kendall! 

 Dr. Perry Kendall should also have known that even 'smart' appliances can
be hazardous to not just the occupants but to their nearest neighbors as
well! A Harvard University professor proffered that each home's eight (8)
nearest neighbours could also suffer from the pulsed microwave radiation
emitted by their neighbors' 'smart' appliances - depending on one's
relative proximity to their neighbors!

 Dr. Perry Kendall became BC's first (and only) PHO, in 1999. In the
intervening 17 years, he should have learned that pulsed microwave radiation
is far more hazardous to organs of the human body than is the continuous
wave radiation emitted by microwave ovens. He should also have learned that
even the weakest possible levels of radiation can be harmful to the human
body - depending on the frequency, power density, modulation, pulse length,
pulse repetition rate and one's overall exposure to the emission.

While Dr. Perry Kendall could not be expected to know of the numerous
spontaneous fires that have been attributed to 'smart' meters - in virtually
every jurisdiction of the world in which they are installed, 'smart'
meter-related fires are a very serious global issue!. Even though homes have
been literally burnt to the ground, electric utilities everywhere deny any
responsibility whatsoever! Here in BC, Sharon Noble, the extremely competent
and knowledgeable Director of the Coalition to Stop Smart Meters in BC, can
speak authoritatively to the subject of fires around the world attributed to
'smart' meters. She can tell you of the unbelievably odious lengths to which
electric utilities in BC and certain BC Government officials have gone - and
still go - to conceal the truth! The truth is shocking, ugly and
reprehensible! And Canada is a democracy!   

UBCM needs to know this! This should be the 'front-and-centre' issue for
UBCM! All communities in BC and across Canada need to know this!
