Smart Meter with Radio-Off! Why's it still broadcasting BC Hydro?

BC Hydro is misleading customers again . . .

Is your choice of a BC Hydro Smart Meter with microwave transmitter radio-off, that you are paying extra for each and every month, sneakily broadcasting and actually still on, without them telling you?  My neighbours just got theirs after being told they had to surrender their analogue meter and guess what, the SmartMeter-Off, is actually broadcasting around the clock - perhaps not as frequently as the regular smart meter, but this one is definitively ON, not off! 



The BCUC needs to hear from you if you have this kind of meter.

Cellphone Radiation Causes Cancer in Rats--25 million dollar U.S. Study

O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

"A $25 million National Toxicology Program study has found that exposure to cellphone radiation caused cancer in rats.

"Radiation health advocates, citing the story yesterday in microwavenews.com, said the study is sufficient evidence to raise the classification of radio-frequency radiation from "possible carcinogenic" (Group 2B) to "carcinogenic (Group1). . .

Wall St. Journal on Cellphones Scratches Surface of EMR Threat

O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

"The Wall Street Journal May 23 spent 3,500+ words arguing whether cellphones should have warning labels--of course they should. Missed was the galaxy of pulsed radiation threats to all and especially children.

"WSJ has thrown a bone to the electro-magnetic field (EMF) threat. But a much better use of the space would have been covering the four hours of detailed, scientific-based research on radiation presented May 22 at the Left Forum in New York. . . .

Cell Phone Radiation Boosts Cancer Rates in Animals

$25 Million NTP Study Finds Brain Tumors - MICROWAVE NEWS - U.S. Government Expected To Advise Public of Health Risk

"The cell phone cancer controversy will never be the same again.

"The U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) is expected to issue a public announcement that cell phone radiation presents a cancer risk for humans. The move comes soon after its recently completed study showed statistically significant increases in cancer among rats that had been exposed to GSM or CDMA signals for two-years.

"Discussions are currently underway among federal agencies on how to inform the public about the new findings. NTP senior managers believe that these results should be released as soon as possible because just about everyone is exposed to wireless radiation all the time and therefore everyone is potentially at risk.

"The new results contradict the conventional wisdom, advanced by doctors, biologists, physicists, epidemiologists, engineers, journalists and government officials, among other pundits, that such effects are impossible . . .

"Cell Phone radiation damages the reproductive organs as detailed by Dr. Devra Davis. More than one hundred physicians, scientists and public health professionals from around the world have joined together to express their concern about the risk that wireless radiation poses to pregnancy and to urge pregnant women to limit their exposures. http://www.babysafeproject.org/



UK experts say we can expect this next generation of youngsters exposed to iPads, cordless phones w base stations, baby monitors, Wi-Fi and wireless games to have damaged reproductive organs and show signs of early-onset ALZHEIMERS by their 30's and 40's. THIS MEANS DOUBLE-CARE, as we look forward to retirement, caring for AGING PARENTS AND AGING CHILDREN. What a price to pay, for a little convenience!

Royal Canadian Police Summoned on Wi-Fi Threat

O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

A comprehensive talk by Jerry Flynn on the effects of EMF radiation from smart phones, wireless computers, routers and antennas, smart meters, etc. Jerry Flynn is a retired Captain in the Communications Electronics Engineering Branch of the Canadian Armed Forces.  

"RCMP, also known as "the Force" and the "Mounties," is a federal national police force that works on a contract basis with three territories, eight provinces, 190 municipalities, 184 aboriginal communities and three international airports.

"Flynn this week called on the Public Health Agency of Canada to direct RCMP "to conduct a criminal investigation into Canada's radio frequency and extremely low frequency scientific community beginning with Health Canada's radiation protection bureau."

Tech Safety Poster

Langley Student Wins Tech Safety Poster Contest

"We are extremely pleased with Charrisa Leung's painting and how she covered all the points we were looking for. This poster will create awareness for Langley Fine Art students, teachers and parents and hopefully encourage other schools to create Tech Safety poster contests of their own. Soon schools will be moving in the direction of best practices for mobile devices just as Ashland public schools have created to follow manufacturer distance recommendations." stated Susan McFee, President of Parent Advisory Council for Langley Fine Arts School. . . .

"RF may actually be a misnomer because the average person thinks of AM/FM radios when they hear the words "radio frequency" or RF energy. Cell phones, tablets and laptops sit in the microwave wireless radiation segment of the electromagnetic spectrum and it may be more accurate to call them microwave wireless radiation devices."
