Cell and Cordless Phones
Cell and Cordless Phones
Cellular and cordless/portable phones, though suddenly and seemingly indispensable in our society, are a direct product of the wireless industry's successful attempt to sell us speed, convenience and entertainment all in one seductive package. In the long term, biologically safe alternatives to wireless cell and portable DECT phones will become necessary, as already they are causing negative effects that impact all living systems.

The Silent Autism Carriers - autism info
" . . . Based on Coulomb's inverse-square law, the comparative force of RF energy on reproductive DNA between the sexes may be calculated. When carried in a front trouser pocket, a mobile phone is in the order of 20 centimeters in distance from female reproductive DNA, but only 5 centimeters in distance from male reproductive DNA. By Coulomb's law, as distance is increased by a factor of four, electrostatic force is decreased by a factor of 16. In our trouser pocket scenario, male reproductive DNA receives 16 times greater force of RF radiation than female reproductive DNA.
Data Shows Cell Phones Associated with Autism
"Do cell phones cause autism? According to government data, they are associated. This cell phone autism analysis shows the association, using publically-available CDC and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) data. U.S. states with high rates of cell phone subscribers have much higher rates of autism. This shows use of cell phones by parents leads to autism in children.
"But not the mother's use of cell phones. A cohort study based on Amsterdam Born Children found that maternal mobile phone use during pregnancy does not increase the odds of behavior problems in their children. This is another expression of Coulomb's law; the majority of new autism cases are coming from men's fragmented reproductive DNA. . . .
Wireless Radiation Concerns / Developing a Safer Policy for Locating Cell Towers and Other Microwave Antennae in the City of Salmon Arm
If you live in the Shuswap region of British Columbia, please attend this critical meeting. Support is needed to show City Hall, Staff, Mayor and Council our concern about the unchecked proliferation of wireless in our community.
The Federation of Canadian Municipalities in 2013 recommended all Canadian cities, that includes those as Salmon Arm, develop their own Cell Tower and Microwave Antennae Location Consultation Policies.
Our city administration appears to be trying to press our city council to adopt the obsolete and dangerous Industry Canada policies; however, it is crucial that this city develops its own, much safer policy. As well, the Mayor and Chief Administrator signed a 5 year contract for Wi-Fi in our main parks and public buildings without any public consultation. This was with ShawSystems Ltd early October 2014. Neighbourhoods were not consulted and antennae can be as strong as those on cell towers.
For more details, and to understand our serious local situation, read the attached Letter to Mayor Nancy Cooper. ~Salmon Arm Citizens for Safe Technlogy~ Salmon Arm City Hall

Testimony to the Pembroke Pines Florida Commission
In this video, Attorney Jimmy Gonzalez gives testimony (October 2012) to the Pembroke Pines Florida Commission asking them to petition the City to issue a Resolution raising awareness of the health risks of cell phone radiation. He warns others about cell phone use and his three tumors.
Mr. Gonzalez died in November, 2014 at the age of 42.
Environmental Health Trust and Grassroots Environmental Education
"With Black Friday and Cyber Monday behind us, those clamoring to now stuff their kids' holiday stockings with their low priced electronic gadgets would do well to read the fine print that comes with all these toys, advises Environmental Health Trust (EHT), a group promoting safer phone use. A growing number of experts including the American Academy of Pediatrics, warns that the young brain needs more time on their parent's lap and less time on the phone's app.
"We all need to "#PracticeSafeTech," advises EHT's President, Dr. Devra Davis." What may be appropriate for adults may not be at all suitable for toddlers with their more rapidly growing brains and bodies." Would you give your child the keys to the car or a shot of whiskey just because she really wanted it?
"Thanks to low competitive pricing, what was once out of price point is now affordable. Retailers are going all out to make owning the latest mobile phones affordable with free equipment provided that parents pay long term contracts? After all, mobile phone prices have dropped or in some cases, free - making them easier to gift. "What harm could it do to youngsters to have such a cool, hot gadget--especially if they can use it to learn to read, see movies, or just stay connected with friends via social media? The answer is: plenty," advises Dr. Davis. . . .
"A new study out of Sweden indicates that talking on cellphones and even cordless phones can be related to a certain form of brain cancer.
"The study, published in the journal Pathophysiology in October, analyzed the results of 1,498 cases of people with malignant brain tumours and 3,530 controls to determine whether phone use had any effect on their cancer.
"In their findings, it appeared that the longer a person used a cell or cordless phone, the more likely they were to get become gliomas, a type of tumour found in the brain or spinal cord that is malignant in 80 per cent of cases, according to WebMD. . .

"Health Canada's Safety Code 6"
Mr. Frank Clegg Former President of Microsoft Canada, CEO of Canadians for Safe Technology
"Nokia's former chief technology officer (CTO), Matti Niemelä spent 10 years developing technology used in your beloved Smartphone devices before he fell ill as a result of exceptionally high levels of accumulative exposure to cell phone radiation. Now he's warning consumers about the health hazards attributed to microwave radiation absorption - it's to late for him, but it might not be too late for you or your loved-ones!
"Matti was a young healthy man when he was recruited to work for Nokia in 1997. The brilliant young man quickly advanced to become Nokia's Chief Technology Officer, and was involved in developing the world's first cell phones, memory sticks and WLAN [Wi-Fi] connections. The first symptoms appeared within a year of his employment at Nokia. His executive level job required that he traveled around the world with a communicator [early model smart-phone] in hand - "exposure to radiation was very strong from morning to night, and even at night", says Matti.
"The symptoms of cell phone radiation breaking down Matti's blood-brain-barrier got worse year by year. The more intense the phone radiation exposure, the more his speech slurred. Finnish news sources quote Matti's symptoms like coordination difficulties being directly affected by cell phone usage. . .
