During three years we followed two young women afflicted by EHS.
Lisa has left town and her economy studies and concentrates on getting stronger and healthier.
Linn is a computer engineer and she eventually moves away from the capital to a new job and a new kind of life in the countryside.
LA Teacher's Union Passes Resolution to Ensure Safety from Hazardous Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) in Schools including EMF Emissions from Wireless Technology
United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA), representing over 40,000 teachers and other workers in LAUSD, passed the following motion by a sweeping majority last night at 9 PM (Motion for the new UTLA Resolution transcribed from attendee, Shane Gregory's transcripts):
Health and Human Services Committee 3-6-13 #1: Moved by Kevin Mottus, seconded by John Cabrera.
"I move that UTLA will abide by current National NEA Policy for Environmentally Safe Schools which states that all employees and stakeholders should be informed when there are changes in their exposure to environmental hazards including electromagnetic radiation and that all stakeholders and the public should be notified of any actual and potential hazards. UTLA will advocate for technological solutions that maintain technology upgrades while not increasing employees exposure to electromagnetic radiation.
"Paying that $12 a month to decrease my proximity to radiation classified by the World Health Organization as a possible human carcinogen feels just plain wrong," she said. "DDT [a pesticide] is in the same category. I'd feel the same way about paying to opt out of spraying DDT on my house. And, similarly, even if I did pay, I'd still be exposed."
Opponents on RF technology claim it causes side effects like agitation, dizziness, fatigue, forgetfulness, headaches, interrupted sleep, leg cramps, ringing in the ears, and skin rashes.
The Vincents have been experiencing many of those same problems since the meters were installed.
To switch to a non-RF meter that still works with the new smart grid, the Vincents would have to pay $253 for the installation and then fork over $51 per month to get the meter read by a PGE employee.
"I think a $50 a month fee is punitive," complained Vincent.

China has begun testing smart-grid technology that could eventually be deployed nationwide to make the delivery of electricity more reliable and efficient. It might also serve as a way to deliver high-speed Internet, TV, and telephony to the farthest reaches of the country.The State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) is running the smart-grid project using passive optical networking (PON) technologya high-bandwidth data wiring that can be run inside electric power cables without interference. Around 86,000 premises in China have so far been connected to the grid; if the project goes nationwide, it would cost around $2 billion to deploy.
A federal judge Friday dismissed a lawsuit against Naperville by the Naperville Smart Meter Awareness group, but left open an avenue of appeal. Judge John Z. Lee granted the city's request for dismissal of the lawsuit, but did so without prejudice, allowing NSMA to file an amended complaint by April 5.
"This is actually a good thing for us," NSMA attorney Doug Ibendahl said. "Most lawsuits go through amended complaints."
