Canada - BILL C-648

An Act Respecting the Prevention of Potential Health Risks
From Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Radiation

Conservative MP calls for greater warning labels on cell phones

Canadian Conservative Member of Parliament, Terence Young says he has multi-party support for his Private Member's Bill to place safety warnings on Cell phones and Wifi routers sold in Canada.

MP says Canadians unaware of health risks posed by cell phones

Conservative MP Terence Young says Canadians are not fully aware of what he says are serious health concerns resulting from cell phone and wireless router use, especially to children. Young's Private Member's Bill will seek to place safety warnings on Cell phones and Wifi routers sold in Canada.

Subject: Bill C-648
Dear Mr. Young
Thank you for your efforts to see wireless devices used more safely.
I suffer badly from exposure to wireless radiation and I am in touch with many people around the world who also have been made ill by this invisible toxin.
I have contacted several MPs over the last few years but none have taken the trouble to bring the issue forward.
On behalf of many people who may not be able to contact you, we appreciate everything that you have done to bring Bill C-648 to Parliament.
If I can be of any assistance, please feel free to contact me.

Thousands of smart meters in Ontario to be removed over safety worries

Some 5,400 of Ontario's 4.8 million smart meters are being removed and replaced because of a risk they could heat up, cause an electrical short and possibly spark a fire


Thousands of smart meters ordered removed in Ontario

David Collie, president and CEO of the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA), said their experts found similarities between the structure of 5,400 Sensus Generation 3.2 remote disconnect meters installed in Ontario and a similar model used in Saskatchewan that was implicated in a number of fires.

Two-thirds of the 5,400 smart meters being replaced are Bluewater Power's

It appears Sarnia's utility provider will be hardest hit by Ontario's decision to remove thousands of smart meters over fears they could cause fires.
Of the 5,400 Sensus Generation 3.2 remote disconnect meters earmarked for removal by March 31, nearly two-thirds are under Bluewater Power's purview.

"I have not run into one person in this community that has said to me the smart meter has made a difference in their electrical use or their habits," he said. (Mayor)

EESC EHS Opinion - plenary vote January 2015

The Section for Transport, Energy, Infrastructure and the Information Society (TEN) of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) has now produced it's final draft opinion that we reported on recently. It would have represented a giant step forward in the recognition of electromagnetic hypersensitivity and the need in society to dramatically alter our approach to supporting sufferers of the condition. However today, the 21st January 2015, a Counter-Opinion was proposed and voted on before the EHS Opinion and the Counter Opinion was passed by plenary vote. That means that the good TEN 559 EHS Opinion was dismissed.

Former Fort Mill resident looks to raise awareness of electromagnetic fields

It was Dallas where Sturdivant got her diagnosis of electromagnetic field sensitivity.

"I had swollen really big, like a monster," she said. "I'm better now, but I really went through it."

The disorder is a disruption of the body's natural electric functions. Symptoms are myriad. So too are triggers. Nick Callas, a Columbia attorney who won Sturdivant her disability status, recalls the client who couldn't consult with him if lights or his computer stayed on during the meeting.


Forbes Features EHT Study on Children's Wireless Risk and then Launches Damage Control

A tidal wave of degenerative brain disease

There's no time to waste: the baby boom generation is already feeling the deluge of age-related degenerative brain disease.

"Our clinics are swamped," Strong said. "We're already starting to see the tidal wave come though."

Note - The comment that I left at the end of this story noting the links between Alzheimer's disease and wireless radiation, along with a link to the Bio Initiative Report were not approved or were removed by the newspaper!

Milpitas school board studies effects of three cell towers in district

Parents have started a petition on asking the district to not renew the contract because a "wide range of negative health effects are manifested on people who live near cell towers, however, study after study has shown that children are much more vulnerable than adults due to their developing brain and thinner skulls. This puts them at an increased risk for a wide range of health problems including leukemia, headaches, behavioral problems and DNA damage."

School board declines cell tower lease

After an often-emotional public comment session — and with three school officials facing a subpoena to testify today (Thursday, Jan. 15) in a related Virginia Freedom of Information Act (VFOIA) case filed by Sperryville resident Eric Tollefson — the board declined to pursue the deal.

IARC Dismiss Cancer and Bad Luck Theory

The World Health Organisation's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) have come forward in anger against the paper "Variation in cancer risk among tissues can be explained by the number of stem cell divisions" released last month in the Journal 'Science', unscientifically stating that the majority of cancer is due to "bad luck". The published research claimed that environmental factors and genetic predispositions explain about one-third of cancers and that two thirds of cancers are due to "bad luck" caused by random mutations arising during DNA replication and the more replications that occur in tissue the higher the chance of developing cancer there. It is disappointing that peer-review by a historically good journal (Science) allowed this statement in the paper's Abstract; however the journal has been defending this in subsequent editorials. The publication by 'Science' resulted in the story being run non-critically as a major item even on the BBC News.

Yesterday, Forbes Magazine let the cat out the bag: studies indicate that wireless radiation is way more harmful than we thought, especially for children.

Today, industry damage-control agents appear to have undertaken a "re-education campaign" upon Forbes, to have the article edited.

The new municipal "telecommunication tower policy" requires an 80 per cent "yes" vote from people living near any proposed new cell phone antenna installation.

Under the new rules, cellphone companies have to poll residents within a 500 metre radius of a proposed tower.

Smart Meters Have Failed
Having reached the end of 2014, there is no doubt it has been a devastating year for utility smart meters and smart grid advocates.  Whether all utility executives yet realize it or not, smart meters have failed.  They have failed miserably to the deliver the promised benefits.

He shows that with more than 10 years of cellphone use, positive results were obtained with industry funded and governmental studies. He reveals some shocking results from studies carried out adults and children, adults show a 50% higher risk of contracting brain cancer, whereas amongst the children it was an unbelievable 420%. According to these studies cordless phones are as unhealthy as cellular phones.

Are 45 Million Americans Already Suffering the Effects of Wireless Radiation ?
In the last edition of WEEP News I included this CBS story about tinnitus - More than 50 million Americans suffer from tinnitus

A WEEP reader who suffers badly from tinnitus and EMF sensitivity, sent me this comment - "Martin, this article is a sad joke and not helpful at all". 
The WEEP reader had missed the point of the article and it is very important that others realize the significance of this CBS news report.
While there may be a few million people who naturally suffer from tinnitus (5 million may be a generous guess).  There are very strong reasons to believe that the vast majority of those mentioned in the story (45 million plus) are actually suffering because they are hearing wireless radiation from a variety of different sources.
The ringing noise in the ears seems to be a hearing effect, but it could also involve a neurological or a central nervous system problem that is being caused by wireless radiation.  The important thing is that we can now point to a large percentage of the population, to show that wireless radiation is affecting their health.  
When you add the 45 million tinnitus sufferers on to the millions who are suffering auto immune diseases, various cancers, headaches, depression etc, the signs are becoming much clearer.  Those signs indicate that wireless radiation is causing serious health effects to large numbers of the population.
It is a sad development, but it is what reputable scientists and EMF safety activists have been forecasting for years!

New Breaking Research About Cell Phone Use (Warning: It's Bleak)

The findings show that 3G phones may cause more harm than earlier versions, raising the risk of brain cancer four-fold. It also appears to have shorter latency period—just five to 10 years, compared to about 25 years for earlier mobile phone versions.

'Cellphones fry young brains'

The Cancer Association of South Africa (Cansa) has issued a stern warning: giving children cellphones and other wireless technology devices carries enormous risks.

Because of the lag between exposure and disease, said Herbst and Davis, the risks are not taken seriously enough.

"We may definitely see an increase in the incidence of brain disease in the future," said Herbst.


Cell Phones May Cause Cancer? Here Are A Few Facts To Consider

Children are more at risk than adults from the effects of most toxic exposures in life, including both chemicals and radio-frequency radiation from cell phones. And experts are worried about the effects of radio-frequency radiation on the developing brain and nervous system of children.

Anti-inflammatory drugs 'could fight depression'

Scientists to launch £5m study that explores links between immune disorders and mental illness – and could lead to new treatments

"Recent evidence has shown, overwhelmingly, that there is a link between depression and inflammation triggered by the body's immune behaviour in the body," said the consortium's leader, neuroscientist Professor Ed Bullmore, of Cambridge University.

The exact mechanism by which the immune system triggers mood changes and affects the progress of conditions such as depression is not fully understood. Nevertheless, the signs are clear, added Bullmore.

Perhaps they should check the links between wireless radiation, immune disorders and mental illness first!

EESC calling for action on behalf of EHS sufferers

A key high-level EU advisory body which formally advises the European Parliament and European Commission, is in the final stage of drafting their 'opinion' regarding actions that are needed to address the issue of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS).It meets to complete the draft on 7th January and this will go to a plenary meeting on 21st January 2015 to finalise and hopefully issue the formal opinion. Powerwatch welcomes and supports this initiative. The section for Transport, Energy, Infrastructure and the Information Society (TEN, within the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC)) has produced a draft opinion (currently on the third draft) on Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity, showing considerable progress on how they view the condition and what actions are warranted to minimise the negative impact it has on public society.

Strong Critique against report by the WHO
Mona Nilsson helped with translation

Some 40 organizations deliver strong critique against report
by the WHO Expert Group on the effects of mobile phone
radiation and requires increased transparency of the experts.

In November, a group of experts working for the World Health
Organization drafted a major report that assesses health risks
surrounding the mobile radiation.

WHO then put the report on its website asking for comments
from the public. It presents the scientific studies in various
medical fields, but lacks summary and chapters on risk
assessment and protective measures.

47 organizations and lobby groups from Sweden, among others -
for example Swedish Radiation Protection Foundation - Europe
and the US now state in a joint letter that the report is
subject to several problems and calls for responsiveness from
WHO's side.

They include critique of the lack of transparency around how
the WHO has selected the six experts who acts as the main
responsible for WHO's assessments of the risks surrounding the
radiofrequency fields and questions the objectivity of the
world health organization.

The letter states inter alia that WHO did not disclose the
experts' declarations of research funding and conflicts of

Four of the six experts, among them the Swedish scientist
Maria Feychting, Karolinska InstituteI, is also active in the
ICNIRP, the association that sets the limits for
electromagnetic radiation in the world.

The organizations also write that the report describes
research on cell phone radiation in a biased manner.

New Technology succeeded today briefly reach Maria Feychting
at Karolinska , who was on her way to a conference.

She says she does not want to comment on the criticism - and
when it comes to issues concerning the expert group she refers
to the Chairman of the Group Emilie van Deventer, who
coordinates the WHO project on electromagnetic radiation.

- It is she who leads and organizes the work, says Maria

Emilie van Deventer was interviewed last summer by the New
York Times about the state of research on cell phone
