The Canadian initiative to stop Wireless Electrical and Electromagnetic Pollution5 April 2014
"The report is almost worse than anything we thought," Frank Clegg, CEO of Canadians for Safe Technology and former president of Microsoft Canada, said at a press conference in Ottawa Tuesday.
Americans' brains being fried by cell towers: New scientific evidence reveals shocking extent of electropollution damage
Oh my...what's in WiFi?
Second grader patterns science fair project after Danish experiment and gets similar results.
I would like to point out that there is a difference between science and the law. Even if 50% of the scientific studies failed to show any biological effect from non-ionizing radiation, under U.S. law (and probably Canadian law, as well) citizens have a legal right not to be forcibly exposed.
There is a huge legal difference between consensual exposure (such as the voluntary use of a cell phone or wifi) versus non-consensual exposure (i.e. from the Smart Grid, cell phone towers (masts), police and military installations, involuntary ambient wifi, etc.). The difference in legal terms can be referred to as contributory negligence or volenti no fit injuria, meaning that the injured party willingly participated in causing his or her own injury. It can also encompass legal theories of unclean hands, since the cell phone or wifi user knowingly exposed others when he or she chose to use the radiation-emitting device.
Battery laws protect persons against non-consensual, harmful or offensive contact, including radiation and other airborne exposures. A substance that causes headaches, insomnia, skin rashes, tinnitus, sinus and lung congestion, difficulty breathing, heart palpitations, etc. is most certainly offensive, if not harmful.
Negligence is the failure to exercise due care of a reasonably prudent person. Would a reasonably prudent person expose others to a substance that 50% of the scientific studies have proven to cause harm, while the other 50% of the scientific studies have been inconclusive? Under the law, just one scientific study proving harm is enough, regardless of how many studies are inconclusive. This is not an election, nor is it a popularity contest. This is the public health, a precious resource that must be safeguarded.
The public policy debate is held to different standards than the scientific debate. The public policy objective is to protect the public health from unnecessary risk. Since we have had and can have safe wired telephone, internet, electricity, cable TV, etc, the risk of exposing billions of people to non-ionizing radiation for the sake of these utilities is entirely unnecessary. Even if all of the studies were inconclusive and none of the studies proved any biological effects, the risk would still be unnecessary. The current scenario is more compelling, whereby 70% of the independent (non-industry funded) studies prove a biological effect (according to Dr. Henry Lai). To allow this entirely unnecessary exposure is unconscionable criminal negligence.
While further research may be desirable, we do not need to wait for any further research to be conducted. We must take action now to protect the public health. We must dismantle the Smart Grid and restore the safe analog grid. We must remove all wifi and restore safe wired internet connections. We must disconnect all cell phone towers (masts) and restore safe wired telephone service. We must take down all television and radio transmitters and satellites giving preference to safe cable conduits. Prudent public policy demands this.
I hope this helps to clarify the legal and public policy perspective.

B.C. considers higher fines

" I can't stand it any more , I get to the end , it's been two years since I have asked to be relocated in vain ," said Horia Necili perched 50 meters high from 7:00 in the morning, while police were deployed around the crane .
Aged 58 years, Ms. Necili , who said not to bear the waves of telecommunications, lived in a public housing before being relocated two years later by the mayor , at his request .
But according to her, this new apartment remains inadequate due to the presence of " many " sources of electricity and waves that would cause him severe headaches and tinnitus.
In June the government announced it would set up a " health surveillance " around this controversial phenomenon of EHS .
Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization (WHO ) has classified May 2011 " the radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans" .
Potential harm also singled out in a recent report of the independent group of researchers Bio Initiative , but the scientific debate is still far from settled .
Waves of uncertainty over wi-fi
Dominion Post New Zealand, March 29, first serious questioning of EMR in the NZ press
Could smart phones be slowly killing us? Some experts feel we're living in an Alice-in-Wonderland world if we ignore radiation from these electronic devices. So today, here's an example of what can go wrong.
and Planning Stages for Permanent Location(s)
Required: 2 semi-permanent room mates (May-June-July) with possibility of extension if refuge development successful.
Possibility: Short-term vacation/detox rental in additional room
Goal: To acquire support, investors, and members to form an intentional community and EMF refuge.
Mostly off-grid house:
2 room mates sought for 3-month rental at beautiful furnished rural 100-year-old renovated home(2800sf, on nine acres, with barn, stable, 2 car garage- up on a quiet, peaceful hilltop- beautiful views- towards farmland and mountains- can garden- with nearby bike trails, organic farms, fields & forest - even golf and swimming. Home will be shared with 1 child and 2 women. Must be willing to make quick application and initial payment for rental to move forward. Minimum rental fee based on current location: $725/month, $625 security deposit. Basic grocery bill divided by roommates.
Room mates should expect to model good, positive behavior especially with respect to child living in home, and be willing to cooperate for smooth running of the household. We intend to research and expand this community to offer detox services with other refuge communities. Congenial group a must. Background & references required (more information to be posted in a day or so). Further information will be posted & updated on this website: http://www.meetup.com...

I couldn't help notice this disclaimer at the bottom of the Canadian report which renders it a complete farce. They actually mean it is not their report.
The opinions expressed in this report are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent those of the Royal Society of Canada or the opinion or policy of Health Canada.
Flouting this, BC Hydro forcibly mounts a device on every home that trespasses wireless radiation classified by the WHO as a "possible carcinogen" (some scientists now want it reclassified "probable").
Let's not be clueless about wireless
The following is an open letter to President Obama asking him to consider the full costs of wireless technology Ed.
Before this nation makes wifi in schools like it is in coffee shops, as the president recently urged, we need to consider what this could do to our children's brains and bodies.
Young people are suffering most, with more than nine in ten saying they do not get the recommended seven hours' rest a night, a study shows.
Now, the researchers are urging people to switch off mobile phones, tablets and even TVs at least two hours before hitting the hay.http://metro.co.uk/2014/04/04/tablets-and-mobile-phones-blamed-as-more-than-nine-in-ten-young-people-fail-to-get-a-good-nights-sleep-4688462/
