" . . . The first item is a summary of published, peer-reviewed, research identifying over 60 studies from 2015 and 2016 that show harmful or potentially harmful biological effects at levels below Safety Code 6 guidelines (attached). The other two items are recent studies, one on humans and the other on animals that significantly challenge the assumptions of Health Canada's defense of the current levels of Safety Code 6 guidelines. As always, we would be pleased to answer any questions and provide experts to discuss these findings further. . . .

No Safe Place

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:

  • Ignored, excluded and incapacitated--citizens forced to flee 
  • Evidence of harmful effects: quick facts 
  • Scientific fact versus political spin and misinformation 
  • Physical effects of EMR 
  • The key symptoms of EHS 
  • Important landmarks on the EMF lifeline 
  • Human rights and human wrongdoings 
  • Questions for you and the government to answer 
  • A taste of what's to come: the real cost of electromagnetic radiation 
  • Scientists call for more protective measures, given increasing evidence of risk from EMFs

Drunk on Wireless

Public Health Consequences of Cell Phone and Wireless Technologies are Begging for Society's Attention




"Drunk on Wireless: Public Health Consequences of Cell Phone and Wireless Technologies are Begging for Society's Attention" 

Presented at the Left Forum 2016 in New York City, featuring:

  • Camilla Rees,MBA of Electromagnetic Health.org,   
  • Public health physician Dr. David Carpenter, Director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at University at Albany, 
  • Dr. Martin Blank, retired Associate Professor in the Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics at Columbia University 
  • Dr. Martin Pall, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University. 
Wrapping up the scientific presentations and putting the present public health situation related to electromagnetic fields in historical, philosophical and spiritual perspectives was radio host Duncan Campbell, Esq., of Living Dialogues. The EMF programs at the Left Forum were sponsored by Occupy EMF Harm and organized by ElectromagneticHealth.org. This program was followed by a second program "Electromagnetic Pollution Solutions" which will be available soon.

The effects of RF signals on medical implants

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." . . .

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. . . .

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."
