Citizens for Safe Technology
Empowering the public to protect children
and nature from unsafe wireless technologies.
Lifestyle and Awareness
The public is generally unaware of the deep controversy within the scientific community regarding the strong potential for harmful biological effects of non-thermal, non-ionizing radiation. The spin and marketing of the telecommunications industry is designed to promote the rapid deployment of all manner of wireless technologies without question, never divulging the serious scientific concern about its safety.

Sequences from the documentary "Where can we live?" - about being electrohypersensitive
This documentary follows Lisa and Linn and the changes they make in their lives during three years.
During three years we followed two young women afflicted by EHS. They both have families with young children.
Lisa has left town and her economy studies and concentrates on getting stronger and healthier.
Linn is a computer engineer and she eventually moves away from the capital to a new job and a new kind of life in the countryside.

Lightweb Darkweb: Three Reasons To Reform Social Media Before It Re-Forms Us
"As a troubadour and tech enthusiast, as an ecology advocate and children's champion, I'm moved to comment on what I sense is an opportunity and crisis of epochal proportions: a chance to optimize the social and environmental benefits of a digitally connected global village by acting quickly to subdue the perils of that technology's shadow.
"The worldwide web of computer connection has a light side and a dark side. . . .
Statement from Australian neurosurgeon Gautam (Vini) Khurana
"I believe that in the present decade, a significant increase in primary brain tumor incidence will be detected internationally. The first indication of this phenomenon may be the plethora of high-profile individuals diagnosed with primary brain tumors in the last few to several years: Senator Ted Kennedy, professional golfer Seve Ballesteros, Cable television host Eleanor Mondale, director and producer Dan Curtis, broadcaster Stan Zemanek, high profile attorney Johnnie Cochran, celebrated pilot Dennis E. Fitch, inventor Robert Moog, political pundit Robert Novak, US Senator Arlen Specter, renowned cancer surgeon Professor Chris O'Brien, baseball pro Gary Carter, journalist David Shaw, Stock broker Rene Rivkin, actress Elizabeth Taylor, actor Mark Ruffalo, actor and musician Martin Kemp, singer Sheryl Crow, rock star Doc Neeson, corporate leader Holly Ann Norwick (partner of Chris Gardner, who was played by Will Smith in film The Pursuit of Happyness), actor / model Rona Newton-John (sister of singer and Grease star Olivia Newton-John), actress Valerie Harper (star of the Mary Tyler Moore Show),...
"Will the incidence of primary brain tumors/brain cancers among high profile people (e.g., celebrities) be an early surrogate marker for the increasing incidence of these tumors in the general population?
Interview with Dr. Roy Fox (based in Halifax, Nova Scotia)
An in-depth interview with Dr Roy Fox, Medical Director of the Capital Health Integrative Chronic Care Service, based in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
"Contrary to a common medical practice worldwide, one of Canada's few experts in environmental medicine says avoiding pollutants and detoxifying the body are the best ways of reducing symptoms of environmental sensitivities and that use of neuroactive drugs is a risky last resort."
"Dr Fox's team treats its patients holistically: "We treat the whole person, ensuring they have a good balanced diet that does not contain what their body can't adapt to. Our approach is to get people in a state of optimal health so they can tap into their own ability to restore balance. And it works: while it does not eliminate sensitivities, patients generally react less and manage their symptoms, which lessen, more effectively.''
Electrosensitivity caused by chronic nervous system arousal - Dr Roy Fox
and Starting Earlier Than Ever Before
From an article published in ScienceDaily May 10, 2013:
"Professor Colin Pritchard's latest research published in journal Public Health has found that the sharp rise of dementia and other neurological deaths in people under 74 cannot be put down to the fact that we are living longer. The rise is because a higher proportion of old people are being affected by such conditions -- and what is really alarming, it is starting earlier and affecting people under 55 years."
"When asked what he thought caused the increases he replied, 'This has to be speculative but it cannot be genetic because the period is too short. Whilst there will be some influence of more elderly people, it does not account for the earlier onset; the differences between countries nor the fact that more women have been affected, as their lives have changed more than men's over the period, all indicates multiple environmental factors. Considering the changes over the last 30 years -- the explosion in electronic devices, rises in background non-ionising radiation- PC's, micro waves, TV's, mobile phones; road and air transport up four-fold increasing background petro-chemical pollution; chemical additives to food etc. There is no one factor rather the likely interaction between all these environmental triggers, reflecting changes in other conditions. For example, whilst cancer deaths are down substantially, cancer incidence continues to rise; levels of asthma are un-precedented; the fall in male sperm counts -- the rise of auto-immune diseases -- all point to life-style and environmental influences. These "statistics" are about real people and families, and we need to recognise that there is an "epidemic" that clearly is influenced by environmental and societal changes.'"

You Won't Believe The Effect The Internet's Having On Your Brain. Actually, You Will.
"Most of us are on the Internet on a daily basis and whether we like it or not, the Internet is affecting us. It changes how we think, how we work, and it even changes our brains.
"We interviewed Nicholas Carr, the author of, "The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains," about how the Internet is influencing us, our creativity, our thought processes, our ideas, and how we think.

"The first part of this video explores the disturbing effect the Internet has been having on our brain's ability to focus. I didn't get around to watching the second part, but it's probably more things like that about the brain and stuff. . . ."
The "electrosensitive" are moving to a cellphone-free town. But is their disease real?
" . . . Even a skeptical thinker can be briefly entranced by the notion that researchers may have simply failed, so far, to uncover a real disease--as Carl Sagan was fond of saying, "the absence of evidence is not evidence of absence." It's especially tempting when talking to someone like Nicols Fox, who reported for the Economist on food safety issues for more than a decade and wrote three books before moving to the nearby town of Renick, W.V., in 2008 in an attempt to control her EHS. A science-minded person who probably would have once scoffed at the idea of hypersensitivity, she gradually came to believe that her shooting pains, unpredictably plunging heart rates, and difficulty speaking were a result of years in front of a computer. "I got more and more sensitive, and eventually there was a day when my body just screamed when I touched the keyboard," she said.
"Now, she lives simply in a little two-bedroom house on a forested ridge and does her writing on a typewriter (she's working on a novel), mirroring the Luddite tradition she once wrote a book about. At night, she wears a shirt woven with silver fibers to reduce her radio frequency exposure, and though her house has electricity, she shuts it off and uses gas lamps whenever possible. During our conversation, her voice would occasionally get cracked and raspy if I got too close with my audio recorder. In the five years since she's moved to the Radio Quiet Zone, she hasn't left once.

A GIRL aged four is having psychiatric treatment after becoming Britain's youngest known iPad addict.
" . . . She is one of many child patients displaying compulsive behaviour after using the tablet device from an early age.
"Doctors say she is so addicted to games on her parents' iPad that she experiences withdrawal symptoms when it is taken away. It comes days after a poll showed more than half of parents let their babies use a smartphone or tablet, with one in seven allowing it for four or more hours a day. . . .

Refugium Wi-Fi Exiles & The Coming Electroplague
"Nanaimo author Kim Goldberg has been awarded a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts to write a book about people who are physically sickened by their exposure to wireless technology.
"I was thrilled to learn that this project will be supported," says Goldberg, who holds a degree in biology and has no wireless devices in her own home. "It will require a huge amount of time and work because the problem is literally global in scope." . . .
