Petition to support Prof. Johansson  

Nine days ago [came] news of a second plan to reduce the space allocated to Asst. Prof. Olle Johansson, by the administration at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm.  

Two years ago Prof. Johansson was forced to destroy 12 wire cage trolleys of research and equipment when his and his work were down-sized. This second attempt to down-size, yet again is being spearheaded by Asa Garmager, Head of Administration.  

These changes may be related to the appointment of a No. Two pro-business administrator: "Alexander von Gabain's long-term experience and international reputation in academia, biotech industry and institutions facilitating innovation are prone to bolster the "knowledge triangle" that encompasses research, education and business, with the entrepreneur in the driver's seat." 

http://ki.se/en/news/karolinska-institutet-recruits-international-top-innovator-and-business-developer  

Commenting on the proposed changes at the Karolinska Institute, Dr. George Carlo of the Science and Public Policy Institute in Washington D.C., said, "I have had the illuminating pleasure of collaborating with Professor Johansson over many years. His science is impeccable, his sense of right and wrong extremely keen, and his willingness to stand up publicly for what he believes is far beyond admirable. I can only imagine the value he brings to students and researchers who he has mentored over the years. He has been and continues to be a credit to the Karolinska Institute and to all of us who are fortunate enough to stand beside him in work. I don't know the internal politics of what is going on at the Karolinska Institute, but knowing the man as I do, something is certainly fishy."  

Further support for Johansson came from Dr. Dimitris Panagopoulos, at Demokritos, in Greece. His original support from 2012 as well as his recent latest demand to protect Johansson are attached.  

The following three individuals are directly responsible for Prof. Johansson's situation:

Christina Ingvarsson, HR administrator, 
Phone: 08-524 878 80

E-mail: Christina.Ingvarsson@ki.se  

It is our responsibility to support Prof. Johansson as one of the pioneering voices who continue the struggle to protect humanity in the face of an industry with tremendous resources and power.  

Please contact the Karolinska and register your concerns. 

Kind regards,

From Professor Olle Johansson:

I have recently received quite a few letters, telephone calls, and e-mails about a recent rumour, around my person, on the Internet.  

Unfortunately, the rumour is correct. I have been asked by my department to once more downsize the remaining space I have, due to my lack of funding to cover the space rent. It will, of course, hamper me even more.

The loser is, however, not I, but people in need of support and answers; concerned parents worrying about the ever increasing amounts of EMFs in schools and daycare centers; cancer victims; persons with the functional impairment electrohypersensitivity and their relatives; and so forth.  

People have already engaged in very generous and kind ways, for which I am deeply indebted. Among the letters sent to my administration and telephone calls made to the very same, I can draw your attention to this recent petition.  

With my very best regards, 
Yours sincerely
Olle

Pacific Northwest Electronic Warfare Range Environmental Assessment (EA)

Excellent Letters written re US Navy testing of in Pacific Northwest

Below are just some of the excellent letters written today that some of you might find useful in writing your own. Please, take a few minutes and write by the new deadline of Friday, October 31.  If you do so, then there will be the opportunity to have further input in the future.

Subject: Pacific Northwest Electronic Warfare Range Environmental Assessment (EA)

To: comments-pacificnorthwest-olympic-pacific@fs.fed.us  

We are a family of six living in Saanich, British Columbia. We write to express our extreme disagreement with the US Navy's intention to test RF devices along the shores of the northern Olympic Peninsula.

Both U.S. residents and residents of Canada, not to mention wildlife in an ecologically sensitive area, will be exposed to high frequencies and high levels of radiation. There is absolutely no evidence that such testing is safe for humans, wildlife, or important plant ecosystems. This is an an enormous and foolhardy risk. It brings to mind the nuclear testing conducted in the southwest United States that contaminated much of the United States with radioactive fallout for many years.

The dangers of EMF radiation are many and real. The prestigious and respected American Academy of Environmental Medicine has made this an area of concern, and recently gave their highest award to Dr. Martin Pall of Washington State University for his research in this area. Dr. Pall has explored how EMFs act via activation of voltage-gated calcium channels, and how EMF exposures can cause physiological effects including cancer, oxidative stress and EHS. In addition many physicians are discovering that their patients are experiencing difficulties because of EMF exposure, and Women's College Hospital in Toronto has recently established a program to educate doctors about this threat, which some public health professionals call the greatest challenge to human health in the twenty-first century.

Our family does not give our permission for the US Navy to subject our children to this serious health threat. Both the United States and Canada should look to other countries whose standards regarding EMF exposures are much more demanding, and whose forward thinking should lead the way on this issue. We insist that the residents of this area be considered, and that the US Navy be prevented from such testing.

____________________________

To each BC MP:

Dear Members of the Canadian Parliament,

The US Navy plans to do testing of powerful RF devices along the shores of northern Olympic Peninsula (Clallum county faces Victoria and BC). The frequencies are high, 4-8 GHz, and signals using these frequencies travel great distances. We very likely will be exposed to high levels of radiation that the military will be testing.

Comments are being accepted from the public at comments-pacificnorthwest-olympic-pacific@fs.fed.us until Oct. 10. Pacific Northwest Electronic Warfare Range Environmental Assessment (EA) must be on the subject line.

The Navy is saying there is no evidence of harm to animals or humans. Independent scientific evidence proves this statement to be incorrect. Inadvertently, but without doubt, the US Navy will be experimenting on Canadians, on our families and on our wildlife.

Has the Canadian government been informed about this exercise? If so, what was the reaction? If not, there should be a strong objection to such an exercise from taking place in an area where Canadians will be exposed. There is no way to limit exposure to such emissions which have been shown to have dangerous effects, especially on children and fetuses, those with compromised immune systems, and the elderly.

This must be stopped. This trespass into our environment must not be allowed. I implore you to ask your leaders to contact the US government and demand that our sovereignty and safety be respected.

Sincerely,

Sharon Noble

______________________


I am writing in utmost concern for your intention to permit the Olympic National Forest to be used as an electronic warfare testing ground by the US Navy. If passed, this decision will undoubtedly cause irreversible harm to the plants, birds, animals, ecosystems, and humans directly in, and in areas within a several hundred-mile radius of this site.

Studies conducted by world-class, non-industry-funded scientists show there is NO SAFE level of radiation, and that radiation from all sources is cumulative. Furthermore, a peer-reviewed study published May 7, 2014 in Nature, International Weekly Journal of Science proves the negative effect of EMF on migratory birds. " So far, no putative effect of anthropogenic electromagnetic noise at intensities below the guidelines adopted by the World Health Organization 1, 2 has withstood the test of independent replication under truly blinded experimental conditions. No effect has therefore been widely accepted as scientifically proven.  Here we show that migratory birds are unable to use their magnetic compass in the presence of urban electromagnetic noise. These fully double-blinded tests document a reproducible effect of anthropogenic electromagnetic noise on the behaviour of an intact vertebrate."

In regards to your comment that "There are no conclusive direct hazards to human tissue as a result of electromagnetic radiation, last August the Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine published a paper by Washington State University Professor Emeritus of biochemistry Martin Pall, which documents how EMF affects the flow of voltage-gated calcium channels in our cells. Pall links this change in cellular activity to a plethora of physical ailments. Basing his conclusions on 24 studies, he has this to say about short high-intensity pulses of microwave radiation: " We know from the nanosecond pulse studies[that these pulses] can be very damaging and act via VGCC activation, with activation continuing long after the pulse has ceased (7). It has been known for over 30 years that short microwave pulses can cause massive cellular damage (57)." EMF has been recognized as a potential carcinogen by the WHO in 2011 (alongside lead and DDT), and scientifically linked to autism (which is up by 33%), skyrocketing ADHD, the disappearing honeybee, and more. Read the literature, and it becomes clear that the potentially harmful effects of EMF exposure are much greater than the thermal (heating) risks current exposure standards attribute to it. In 2011, the Council of Europe (47 countries, 800-million people) urged all of its member nations to "reconsider" their relationship with ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) whose radiation Exposure Limits are almost universally adopted and, instead, observe the limits recommended in the BioInitiative 2007 Report. This report, if adopted, would require Canada and the USA to reduce their radiation Exposure Limits 10,000 times. In section 7 (Technological progress and economic growth at the expense of environment and health protection ) subsection 29 of their 2011 parliamentary report on the potential danger of EMF, the Council of Europe states:

"...it is most curious, to say the least, that the applicable official threshold values for limiting the health impact of extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields and high frequency waves were drawn up and proposed to international political institutions (WHO, European Commission, governments) by the ICNIRP, an NGO whose origin and structure are none too clear and which is furthermore suspected of having rather close links with the industries whose expansion is shaped by recommendations for maximum threshold values for the different frequencies of electromagnetic fields."

Lastly, neither Lloyds of London nor Swiss Re Insurance will insure against health-related claims attributed to devices emitting non-thermal microwave radiation.  

In light of all of the above, I sincerely hope that reason and prudence will prevail, that you do not permit the testing of these weapons to proceed, but keep the Olympic National Forest as a pristine refuge, a haven for wildlife and for future generations, a place that promotes not destruction and illness, but health, balance, and well being, _______________________________________________________________________  

Dear Mr. Greg Wahl,

See below my concerns with the future testing of weapons and RF exposure. Please keep me informed of any and all decisions made in this regard and please ensure that my concerns are included in the decision making, as it impacts my life directly. I appreciate your time and effort in ensuring that people's quality life is protected at all times, never at the expansion of technology or security.

Importance: High

My name is XXX , I live in Victoria and suffer the daily effect of RF radiation emanating from cell phone, WIFI, cell tower and every devices like microwave etc... and computer in my work place. No one can convince those suffering from these effects that they don't exist, cause we know the facts and we know they exist. RF radiation is a challenge on our health as we experience them daily. I've acquired an RF device to help protect me by making adequate adjustment to my home as to prevent further damage while resting at home. There is a time when as a customer we need to out-way, speed/efficiency against our quality of health and life.

I do not support anyone bringing danger to my close environment, myself and family, which RF is a danger. WE have a right to protect ourselves. These RF effects are proven scientifically to cause cancer; and I personally don't need anyone to prove or convince me otherwise, since I experience lots of side effect at first hand, such as the effect of headaches, nausea, sleep deprivation, ringing in the ear, racy heart, chest pressure, sneezing/allergies, my vision having drop way too quickly as they increased Wi-Fi service in my workplace and feeling completely helpless to protect myself, as it's costing me a fortune in compensating to protect my health and shielding myself from the RF. Meanwhile no one listens, yet those same individuals bringing this new technology are starting to show the same signs I describe but no one bothers to connect the dots, as to work together in stopping this dreadful expenditure for profit and profit only and full harm to your health and quality of life.

I ask that you reconsider this testing and please do not bring in anymore radiation to our home and environment. All this technology and yet we have less and less freedom and quality of life, the only one seeming to benefit is big business for profits. What's the use of looking after our health if these test are going to continue destroying us. Contradictory in term, and costly to our Healthcare. I work harder than I ever did when I was younger, and no matter how healthy I try to maintain, there isn't a day when I'm not having to fight to protect myself not only against RF but against the ignorance perpetuated in our population by our government agency by not providing the truth to the populace and keeping our world inform and safe. Unless you're planning on killing us, then please take those testing somewhere safe and controlled so that our environment or self aren't affected. We've been working real hard at cultivating bees back at a very slow pace. Everything is linked together. Any damage caused has ripple effect to the masses. Those intelligent enough to understand that, and who are in a role of authority need to protect the planet, and certainly not test to see how far they can go and learn from those testing's. There has been enough research done already and sufficient proofs have been provided and yet ignored by convenience by those in authority and paid to protect those who pay their services. Who decide who has the authority. Scientists are scientists and too many have spoken and been ignored and continue to be ignored. There is no need for more testing. What more do we need in this world to live happy and peaceful. We don't need more scientist to do what has been already done and proven and ignored. You do not do research until it fits your bill, you do research to find what action need be taken as to maintain life and quality of life. Refuse to do military or otherwise testing in regard to RF as the risk is already too much. Time to listen and pay attention and protect the planet and every living cellular being on it. I look forward to hear that this project is canceled and look forward to your confirmation of such in support to life in general.

Thank you for hearing me out and please don't allow the testing to take place, for everyone's best interest.

Best regards,

Dear Sir or Madam,

As a Canadian, but more importantly as a human being and one of millions of innocent victims of whatever protocol the world's dominant governments & corporations wish to force on the global population, I take great umbrage at the suggestion that this initiative by the US Navy will have no impact on humans. The information offered also points out that the impact to small animals is unknown at this time. There is no mention of the impact on avian or marine wildlife or that of insects, beneficial or otherwise.  

The impact on humans is quite well-known. This denial, in the light of a mountain of evidence to the contrary by respected, independent medical personnel and research scientists world-wide with absolutely nothing to gain career-wise or financially, is a downright abrogation of responsibility by the American military and its cohorts.

There is world-wide concern that the biologic effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic low-frequency radiation such as wi-fi and microwave cellular radiation and that emitted by the so-called smart meter and smart grid protocols, is cumulative and considered to be carcinogenic by the WHO and many other health organizations, although not recognized as such by the ridiculously inadequate standards set by Health Canada and the United States FCC, EPA and FDA agencies.  

The politicians, military personnel and corporate entities who, for whatever iniquitous reasons, are attempting to apply Guinea pig status to the population of all living creatures in this geographical quadrant and to use the Pacific Northwest habitat as a testing ground for EMF warfare is an unconscionable, egregious and reprehensible act of aggression to the Nth degree. My mind boggles and my entire psyche reels at the thought.  

MK-ULTRA and the CIA's Project Pandora and other such nefarious programs by virtue of the Freedom of Information Act are well-known efforts of the US Military to control mankind and it seems to me that this Environmental Assessment is another step in the directed energy experiment designed to bring ordinary people to their knees.  

Please, please when coming to a decision in this matter consider the humanitarian issues at stake here. Apply the Precautionary Principle diligently and with respect to the unwary citizens of both the United States and Canada and remember that accountability goes with the position and if the results are adverse and pernicious to any degree, those promoting the program must all also bear the guilt of the consequences.

Respectfully submitted,

I object!! Not only does RF destroy marine life, it destroys all life. I am already electrosensitive and don't need or want any more electromagnetic pollution affecting my body. The USAF have known since WW2 that this stuff is deadly; the Russians proved it by irradiating the US embassy in Moscow, remember? What more do you need to know?

Stop the psychopathic behaviour before you kill the entire planet.

Ladies and gentlemen;

As a resident of West Vancouver, BC, Canada I am alarmed at the proposed RF tests by the US military on the Olympic Peninsula.

I have a medically diagnosed condition of electro hyper sensitivity to all electromagnetic radiation, even at very low frequencies, well within what Canada and the US claim to be harmless.

Today several thousand independent scientific studies call for lowering the allowable levels currently part of standards and emitted by cell towers, and other wireless technologies.

While these tests may be facing away from American cities,you seem to forget that most of BC's population lives precisely along the border. This is, as i understand it, the precise direction in which the radiation will be fired.

Please remember: We are also human, and do not deserve to be showered with military strength radiation!

I strongly object to having my family and myself treated as collateral damage to the US military experiments! Or should that be experimental rats?

I hope the US Navy can find a different location for their tests, or better still abandon them altogether. Surely enough is known about the damaging effects of this technology after decades of testing it. . . .

For your information I am enclosing a powerpoint presentation by Captain (ret.) Jerry Flynn of the Canadian navy, who worked for 22 years in radiological warfare.

Subject: Pacific Northwest Electronic Warfare Range Environmental Assessment (EA)

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing with regard to the US Navy plan to establish a training facility in Northern Washington dedicated to Electronic Warfare. According to information provided, the environmental assessment says:

"The purpose is to train to deny the enemy "all possible frequencies of electromagnetic radiation (i.e. electromagnetic energy) for use in such applications as communication systems, navigation systems and defense related systems and components," and

"There are no conclusive direct hazards to human tissue as a result of electromagnetic radiation.

"Links to DNA fragmentation, leukemia, and cancer due to intermittent exposure to extremely high levels of electromagnetic radiation are speculative; study data are inconsistent and insufficient at this time". While it might be argued that there is no "conclusive" evidence of direct hazard to human health, there is a multitude of independent peer-reviewed studies and reports by world renowned scientists that show that prolonged exposure to even low levels of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) is extremely harmful, especially to those most vulnerable: fetuses and children, those with impaired immune systems, and the elderly, and wildlife.

Even 60 years ago the US military knew the significant danger associated with EMR, recognizing its potential as a military weapon. It therefore is confusing that the US military today denies this science. Further it is of interest that in their documents they admit this radiation "may affect, but is not likely to adversely affect" living creatures. 

The public deserves to have access to information explaining the effects. An effect is either harmful or beneficial. Is the US Navy saying that exposure to manmade, unnatural radiation is beneficial?

With regard to the transmitters which will be on the northern tip of the Olympic Peninsula, these transmitters plus the associated military equipment (satellites, planes, mobile transmitters) are within a few miles of a major Canadian city, Victoria, British Columbia. Were the Federal and Provincial governments advised of the plans to build a permanent training facility with weapons grade transmitters? Did they agree to allow military weapons to be pointed at a friendly country? Why was Northern Washington selected, rather than an inhospitable location like Death Valley?

I wish to express my deepest concern about this plan, and ask to be granted standing in order to provide additional information during future considerations.

Sincerely
Sharon Noble

CEO WIRELESS LETTER from Cindy Sage and David O. Carpenter

On behalf of the BioInitiative 2012 Working Group (September 22, 2014)

September 22, 2014

"On behalf of the BioInitative Working Group, we are writing to express our concern about the views expressed by CEOs from Google, Dell, Apple, Adobe, eBay, Facebook, the George Lucas Educational Foundation and others to the FCC supporting wireless technologies in schools.

"Your letter to the FCC dated July 7, 2014 titled Education Superhighway, states:

"Today, we are writing to you to urge swift bi-partisan action at your July 11, 2014 meeting to adopt the E-Rate modernization proposal set forth by Chairman Wheeler." "By responsibly investing $2 billion of unused funds and providing predictable ongoing support for Wi-Fi, the plan will make dramatic progress in bringing high-speed connectivity to our classrooms."

"No one denies that bringing high-speed connectivity to our classrooms is important. But it can be a wired connection and does not have to be WiFi. It does not reflect well on the ethics of your corporations to encourage the FCC to provide $2 billion dollars for new wireless classroom infrastructure and devices for school children . . .

"To promote wireless technologies in schools is to deliberately and knowingly disregard current health warnings from international science and public health experts. . . 

"Today, corporations that deal with educational technology should be looking forward and helping school administrators and municipal leaders to access safe, wired solutions. Your corporations can reasonably foresee and offer alternatives to potentially hazardous exposures to wireless radiation by choosing to support wired educational technologies."

For Diagnosing and Treating Patients With Electrohypersensitivity - Includes link to Consensus paper of the Austrian Medical Association's EMF Working Group

" . . . If you think you are responding adversely to electromagnetic radiation, it is important that you share this document with your doctor/health care professional. EHS is an emerging illness that has not been taught in most medical schools, especially in North America. However, it is increasing at an alarming rate and now children as well as adults are adversely affected by this radiation.

"According to Hallberg and Oberfeld (2006) the prevalence of EHS is increasing and by 2017, 50% of the population is likely to be electrically hypersensitive . . .

EHS Refuge in Australia: People Needed

Kim Goldberg's post on Refugium

"Bruce Evans is man on a mission. And he is looking for other people with Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity to join him in creating an EHS refuge in southeast Australia, on land outside of Wangaratta, Victoria in the King Valley.

"The land is available for occupancy right now for anyone who can come with a van, tent or caravan. Those who arrive first may be able to have one of the bedrooms in Bruce's cottage.

"People who want to visit the land for a temporary "holiday" from wireless radiation are welcome. But Bruce is also looking for electrosensitive people who want to stay long-term, build their own cottages on his family's land, participate in the farm and help create a community safe from electropollution. . . .

Human Rights Tribunal does not accept evidence that EHS exists (British Columbia)

Electroyperensitivity (EHS) has been rejected as a disability by the Human Rights Tribunal of BC (September 18, 2014)

Sad news.  CSTS Human Rights case was dismissed by the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal. This was a class action on behalf of people with EHS, whose doctors said that they should avoid RF and not have smart meters.

Even though EHS is a recognized by the Human Rights Commission in Canada, the Americans with Disabilities in the US, and as a disability in other countries, the Tribunal chose not to accept evidence but rather to base its decision in large part on the evidence the BCUC accepted in the Fortis application.

Fortis BC paid a company (Exponent) to defend the smart meter. Exponent is a "product defense company" and has defended some of the most dangerous products in the world - pesticides, agent orange, asbestos, etc and now microwave radiation. They buy scientists who will produce reports saying anything is safe. One of their people said that our bodies emit more radiation than does a smart meter and the BCUC accepted that, while rejecting testimony from world renowned experts like Dr. Martin Blank, Dr. Isaac Jamieson and Dr. Meg Sears.

It's a sad day when the government is allowed, by the Human Rights tribunal, to come between a patient and his/her physician, but this is what has happened. Here is the decision for you to read.

This makes it more urgent for us to fight this re. fires, fee discrimination, and our Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

The other class action lawsuit against BC Hydro over smart meters is still ongoing. That one represents all customers of BC Hydro (residential and business) who are unhappy about any aspect of the smart meter program (i.e., getting one if you didn't want it, getting one and later deciding you don't want it, being harassed and bullied for refusing to get one), whether or not you currently have a smart meter.

Declaration: Doctors call for Protection from Radiofrequency Radiation Exposure

letter signed by renowned scientists and physicians urging Health Canada to stop denying that evidence exists that shows harm.

Also Declaration: SCIENTISTS call for Protection from Radiofrequency Radiation Exposure

Canada's Safety Code 6 Guideline is fundamentally flawed.

Health Canada's Safety Code 6 is based on an obsolete account and analysis of RFR research and has disregarded or minimized certain recent studies, such as cancer, DNA damage, protein synthesis, stress response, and detrimental biological and health effects in humans that occur at RFR intensities below the existing Code 6 Guideline. . . .


Our urgent call for public health protection.

The public's health and the health of the environment are threatened by ever-evolving RF emitting technologies, without due consideration for what the potential cumulative impacts on biological systems are likely to be in the future.  

We urgently call upon Health Canada . . .

i) to intervene in what we view as an emerging public health crisis;

ii) to establish guidelines based on the best available scientific data including studies on cancer and DNA damage, stress response, cognitive and neurological disorders, impaired reproduction, developmental effects, learning and behavioural problems among children and youth, and the broad range of symptoms classified as EHS; and

iii) To advise Canadians to limit their exposure and especially the exposure of children. . . .

[Note: This includes-but is not limited to-radiofrequency radiation-emitting devices, such as cell phones and cordless phones and their base stations, Wi-Fi, broadcast antennas, smart meters and baby monitors.]

We are scientists engaged in the study of electromagnetic fields (EMF) radiofrequency radiation (RFR) health and safety. We have serious concerns regarding Health Canada's Safety Code 6 Guideline. . . .
