This is an excerpt from a short film I'm making about people who suffer from controversial condition Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS).  

A version of this video and my photographs were shown on the Guardian website and the story and my photos were published in the Weekend Magazine on the 30th March 2013.

BC Hydro: energy mafia lose the plot... and their conscience

Tale Back Your Power - November 17, 2014

" . . . I can't help feeling discouraged by how lost British Columbia has become -- or should I say, how lost those who run BRITISH COLUMBIA, the for-profit corporation masquerading as government, have become.

"It appears the management in my home province has now completed its descent into the slimy waiting hands of mafioso. And BC Hydro is all-in, now autocratically committing crimes against everyone in the province. . .

An Electronic Silent Spring

Book by Katie Singer

An Electronic Silent Spring - Facing the Dangers and Creating Safe Limits

"Society has received profound benefits from electronics. We have developed and marketed electronic technologies [that emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR)] without recognition or regulation of its effects on human health or wildlife. Katie Singer's book, An Electronic Silent Spring, and this website are dedicated to encouraging recognition that EMR can harm people and wildlife; to protective solutions for the public health and our ecosystem.

"While they operate, mobile phones, mobile phone chargers, iPads, cellular antennas, Wi-Fi, compact fluorescent lights, transformers and "smart" utility meters emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR) at frequencies and amplitudes that are not found in nature. An Electronic Silent Spring describes how wildlife and peoples' health are affected.

  1. The book reports on peer-reviewed studies that show that EMR-exposed tadpoles die, aspen tree seedlings wither, bee colonies collapse, birds crash into antennas and white stork mates fight.
  2. Signals emitted by metal detectors, "smart" utility meters, hybrid cars and other common electronics can shut off a medical implant. While the FDA regulates microwave ovens (whose signals can interfere with cardiac pacemakers), no agency regulates cell phones, which operate closer to the body, with more power and at the same frequency as a microwave oven. Geophysicist, electrical engineer and implant patient Dr. Gary Olhoeft explains the issues. 
  3. Dr. Martha Herbert, Harvard pediatric neurologist, and Cindy Sage, MA, co-editor of the BioInitiative Report, and others explain why exposing children to Wi-Fi may lead to autism. The American Academy of Pediatrics warns pregnant women and children not to use cell phones. 
  4. Federal regulations protect the engineering needs of electronic devices and telecom companies. Federal law prohibits local officials from refusing installation of a cell tower based on health or environmental concerns. The book explains federal policies, which do not recognize that EMR can harm health. 
  5. Underwriters Lloyds of London and A.M. Best advise companies not to insure against damages to health caused by wireless devices. This book presents the peer-reviewed studies underlying analysts' concerns. 
"Katie Singer's An Electronic Silent Spring also offers an extensive solutions section for policy makers, telecom and utility companies, schools, civic groups and individuals who want to reduce EMR emissions and exposure.

Cell Phones: Invisible Hazards in the Wireless Age

It's like the hissing of pots and the cooking of cells
twisting in knots like the book of the kells.
it's the clotting of minds - it's a fight with the heart
the rotting of time, it's the light and the dark
more than plain rumor, it's a brain tumor state
my strains duplicate - pains accumulate
mutation awaits - the death wish of all cells
it's the personal assistant with all whistles and bells
started off with a clock, to replace the wrist watch
then a torch, radio, camera - in case the cyst pops
now we can send clips off from cliff tops to inbox
and satellite locator, in place to assist cops
it's the all in one ultimate modern go go gadget
that is why we never leave it behind - it's oh so magic and
oh no tragic - the toy has declared you hexxed
five hundred thousand brain tumors a year - whos next?

breaker breaker one nine
we've made the same mistake for some time
my dome is splitting - its a bleak disease
cos my phone's emitting these frequencies

danger danger beware
they've known the risk has always been there
my free minutes are used - my minds left numb
three tumors removed now i'm blind deaf and dumb

i have sleepless nights and sty in my eye
who's gonna own up to this fly in the pie?
our government's plan is to leave us high and dry
and the FDA policy is to lie and deny
it goes one ear - but not out the other.
i aquired alzeimers and i doubt ill recover
who's responsible for the wear and tear on my brain
i know that im here but they declare me insane
i phoned there to complain but was waisting my time
on hold for an hour and i'm still eighth in the line (ouch)
it radiates all the time - a razor slice day and night
EMF is worse than ultraviolet rays of light
melting the runway of ice before our maiden flight
Im one cat trading life with a plague of mice
we're not brave, we're vague and afraid to fight
we've turned grey and face paler than a shade of white
David Icke gave us sight, light and great advise
but whos gonna save the children of the neighbours wife
when they bake alive they'll cunjor up a wild excuse
giving cellphones to kids is just child abuse
we think it's all fine with our extra talk time
but phone credit is suicide - next to chalk lines
it's death, it's war crime - genocide -
a walk by a fork in right eye.
you're an egg and pork pie half the world has a cellphone -
that's over 3 billion don't call me - i won't answer -- but you can call me trillion

breaker breaker one nine
we've made the same mistake for some time
my dome is splitting - it's a bleak disease
and vodafone is commiting indecencies

danger danger beware
they've known the risk has always been there
my free minutes are used - my minds left numb
three tumors removed now i'm blind deaf and dumb

hands up - who uses blue tooth?
research the truth or youre a few screws loose
you may as well do a head stand today in a bed pan
your a dead man talking - a grenade in ya left hand
we're falling down the ladders of a nation of snakes
the patron of saints cant heal impatient mistakes
awake to the waning of the birds and bees
its the realm of EMFs that are murdering these
its an industry blinded by senseless greed
a centipede that stings us with endless fees
damage occurs even with the shortest of use
phone makers want insurance but insurers refuse
It's dirty business, providers have death on their books
they provide us with lies - the usual method of crooks
their advertising is all based on sensation
the flags are rising on this plague to end nations
your cellphone is harmful there's proof by induction
causing nerve-cell, blood-cell and DNA destruction
this epidemic has only begun
you should recognise your phone is the smoking gun

Olle Johansson's views on EHS, handicap laws and regulations 2014

Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience, Experimental Dermatology Unit

" . . . I say there must be an end to nonchalance, lack of consideration, indifference and lack of respect on the part of society. Never accept discriminatory treatment or an insulting special treatment. Stand up for others' rights and in this way you'll stand up for your own future . . .
