The Canadian initiative to stop Wireless Electrical and Electromagnetic Pollution9 January 2015
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".
I've started the petition "U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate and President of the United States: "HALT THE EMR NOISE POLLUTION HARMING HUMANS AND WILDLIFE" and need your help to get it off the ground.
New Breaking Research About Cell Phone Use (Warning: It's Bleak)
'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.

Anti-inflammatory drugs 'could fight depression'
"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.
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.

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
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
radiation, here you can read more.
