Citizens for Safe Technology
Empowering the public to protect children
and nature from unsafe wireless technologies.
Similar symptoms of ill health are reported worldwide by people of all ages who are exposed to wireless technologies. These include cell phones and cell towers, wireless internet (Wi-Fi), portable home telephones, Wi-Max, utility "Smart" meters, microwave ovens, lighting fixtures, CFL light bulbs and other home and business devices and appliances.

A letter to Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson from Olga Sheean
Olga Sheean has been able to get Orca Air to agree to have cell phones turned off when those who suffer from EHS travel on their airline. This "letter" is actually a comprehensive document that outlines the effect of wireless devices and infrastructure being launched and promoted by Vancouver City Council. The letter/presentation is extremely thorough, and worth reading.
Main themes in this document:
Gary Olhoeft, PhD, geophysicist and electrical engineer - excerpted from An Electronic Silent Spring
"I have Parkinson's Disease. In 2009, I had a Deep Brain Stimulator (DBS) implanted in my brain. It completely replaces the pharmaceuticals I took for fifteen years, which caused increasingly unpleasant side effects. My Medtronics manual says that a cell phone must be at least 20 inches away from me with a SAR of no more than 1.8. Held near my head, the phone's SAR can't be more than 0.25 for 15 minutes. Otherwise, according to Medtronics, it will cause dangerous heating of my implant. If the implant gets too hot, it will malfunction, my brain could be injured, or I could die."
"The Medtronic manual for my deep brain stimulator (implanted to ease effects of Parkinson's) lists more than sixteen pages of potential electro-magnetic interferences. . . .
"Wireless radiation causes health problems in many ways. One that few people know about is interference with medical devices. Imagine someone with a deep brain implant or an insulin pump having to live in a home with a $$smeter. They could suffer seriously.
"The National Institute of Health estimates that twenty-five million Americans now have implanted medical devices. Besides brain stimulators, the functioning of cardiac pacemakers, insulin pumps, cochlear implants and bone stimulators can also be disturbed by RF signals." . . .

"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!

WiFi with Cecelia Doucette (WACA - TV)
O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)
"Wi-Fi health advocates were exultant today at news that an Israeli TV documentary titled "How We are Killing Ourselves--Wireless Radiation" won a high rating and Haifi ordered Wi-Fi removed from all schools.
"The 30-minute documentary about the "epidemic of Electro-Sensitivity" (ES) aired at 9 p.m. April 12 and "received the highest rating of the day," according to Dafna Tachover, an attorney with offices in Israel and New York.
"She provided a link to the show to Wi-Fi health advocates in other countries noting that while the video is in Hebrew there are some interviews in English. [7'42" and 11'20"].
"Tachover said the director planned to do 10 minutes on ES as part of a film about the diseases of the 21st century but after working with health advocates "understood the extent of the problem and the lie and how important it is to give an uncompromising warning to the public." It was then decided to do 30 minutes mainly on ES and Wi-Fi in schools. . . .
"Said Tachover: "Electro-Sensitivity is an epidemic and not three percent of the population. We are now in the double digits in terms of ES. The public must be told. Wi-Fi in schools is a disaster and as a person who spends two to four hours every day on the phone with people and children who got sick, with many contemplate committing suicide, I urge you all to be uncompromising. The truth, and all of it must be told. Continued good luck to us all and thanks to anyone out there who stands up to evil and stupidity."
Cancer and FM-transmitters in Europe (Orjan Hallberg)
Stockholm, December 24, 2015: An analysis of data from 24 European countries,
published by Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, reports that cancer risks are significantly
associated with the density of horizontally polarized FM radio transmitters such as those found in
Sweden. This is the first study ever published about this strong association. . .
Update for your information regarding Orjan Hallberg, the author of this study and many others:
"One of the most respected and dedicated scientists who has studied wireless radiation for decades died recently. Prior to 2002 he was working for Ericsson wireless. When he was told to stop publishing articles about the health effects of microwave radiation, he quit and worked independently. He was still working on this important issue right up to the time of his death. Some of his colleagues have circulated some of his studies and reports. (Available on this website). "It is too early to predict future rates of brain cancer, but these preliminary findings suggest that we should prepare for about a doubled brain cancer incidence rate and possibly as high as 25 times the incidence we have today. One result of such a worldwide increase in brain cancers would be a dramatic shortage of neurosurgeons leading to increased mortality. Any statement about harmless cell phones based on only 5-10 years of use has no scientific basis due to the long latency times involved.
The Potential Impact of Mobile Phone Use on Trends in Brain and CNS Tumours (Hallberg)
"And just a month before he died, this article was published, warning about that FM transmitters have been linked to melanomas, and a change in the antenna could prevent this. Stockholm, December 24, 2015: An analysis of data from 24 European countries, published by Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, reports that cancer risks are significantly associated with the density of horizontally polarized FM radio transmitters such as those found in Sweden. This is the first study ever published about this strong association. . .

Citizens For Safe Technology
"Wi-Fi: Is It Safe?"
Citizens for Safe Technology is a not-for-profit educational society made up of parents, grandparents, teachers, business professionals, scientists, politicians and lawyers concerned about the exponential increase in public exposure to harmful wireless technologies.
We believe a profound urgency exists to protect the unsuspecting public, especially children, youth and pregnant mothers from unsafe wireless technologies.
