Leisure World is considering a plan to install cell tower in their community
" . . . Seniors, beyond making their own residences safer, can contribute mightily to the hundreds of organizations springing up across the United States to raise awareness about the health risks of radiation exposure from wireless devices in homes, in schools, and in the workplace. Today's seniors escaped such excessive exposure when they were children, but today's children are not as lucky. Many will be made sick and many will die from such exposure while still young adults. Our children and grandchildren need to be helped, not abandoned to the current exponential rise of radiation levels caused by the rapid and thoughtless expansion of wireless technology, whatever the appeal of that technology on other grounds. You can help. . . .
We need your help. Frank Clegg CEO - C4ST
"Today, we launch the most significant campaign to date for C4ST, and for all Canadians concerned about wireless radiation. The target audience is "Moms" in Canada. The action is to have concerned Moms send an email to their local MP and to the Minister of Health Jane Philpott through our new campaign website. Although the campaign is directed to Moms primarily, all concerned Canadians, including Children, can send an email.
"On June 18, 2015 we sent you an email that the 2015 Standing Committee on Health (HESA) presented its report "RADIOFREQUENCY ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION AND THE HEALTH OF CANADIANS" with 12 important recommendations to the House of Commons. Due to the election being called in August 2015, the requirement for the government to respond to the report was cancelled.
"Over the past few months, C4ST has had one on one meetings with well over 30 MP's. As a result of some of those discussions, on Wednesday June 15th, 2016, MP Bill Casey (Cumberland-Colchester) as HESA Chair, presented the same report on Safety Code 6 to the current House of Commons requesting an official government response. We thank MP Casey, MP John Oliver (Oakville) and the other members of the current HESA committee for their decision to present this report to the 42nd Parliament.
"The current government now has 120 days to respond although the Minister of Health, Jane Philpott's office is expected to receive a copy of the report a month before that (mid September). . . .

Mandatory Exposure to Microwave Radiation In Our Schools Has Left 11 Year Old With No Where To Go To School
"Tyler is one of many children who is suffering from the mandatory exposure to the wireless technology that has been installed in our schools. Parents are frustrated with having to deal with School Boards who are willfully turning a blind eye to the thousands of peer reviewed studies confirming the health effects from this unregulated technology that has never been tested for safety. Here is a story that needs to be told! . . .
A letter to Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson from Olga Sheean (first posted July 26, 2016)
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.

IN SUMMARY with 8 key points
Catalyst - ABC Australia
The Australian ABC program, Catalyst, televised a program (30 min) on the dangers of microwave radiation. Very good watching. A video that should be shared widely. VIDEO
Could wifi-enabled devices be harmful to our health? You cannot see it or hear it but Wi-Fi blankets our homes, our schools and our cities. Australia's safety agency says there's no evidence of harm, but that's not the same as saying its safe. A growing number of scientists are concerned that the widespread use of Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi-enabled devices could be slowly making us sick. In this Catalyst investigation, Dr Maryanne Demasi explores whether our wireless devices could be putting our health at risk.
Maryanne Demasi is presenter/producer on ABC's Catalyst program. This is her response to the outcry regarding her report about Wi-Fi

Ground-breaking American study - Canadian perspective
Addressed to Medical Professionals. Useful to all. Updated July, 2016
The following package is for those who wish to approach their doctors with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiation. It contains links organized into specific health effect categories. These links can be printed out according to personal areas of need or concern, and used to start a dialogue with doctors who may not as yet have associated certain health conditions with EMF or RF exposure.
The introductory letter on pages 1 and 2 contains a link to the entire list, and may be useful to your doctor as a reference tool.
"Dear Medical Professional:
"Your patient has asked us for support in providing you with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation, recently reclassified by the WHO/IARC as a Class 2B, possible human carcinogen.
"This WHO risk category also includes lead, DDT, chloroform, and dioxane, and is relevant to all wireless devices emitting radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, including cordless phones, cell phones, IPads, Wi-Fi routers, wireless games, baby monitors, and smart meters . . .
"Many doctors have already given medical advice to their patients by way of a medical letter or note on a prescription form stating that the patient should avoid, for medical reasons, living in a residence or residential complex at which a wireless meter is operating in order to maintain their health or avoid aggravating a medical condition. This medical advice stating the health condition and advising the patient that they should avoid ongoing exposure to wireless radiofrequency and smart meter emissions will allow your patient to participate in the Human Rights Action currently underway. We are hopeful that the individual's right to protect their health as advised by their medical doctor will be upheld by the Human Rights Tribunal, and this forced exposure within their own home to undesirable microwave radiofrequency emissions will be replaced with reasonable and respectful accommodation by BC Hydro . . . "

" . . . What do fried gonads, brain buzz and scary 'senior moments' have in common? Here's a clue: it's that thing in your hand/pocket/backpack, on your desk or beside your pillow--the cell phone or wireless device that seems to have become a permanent extension of your body, an integral part of every moment of your existence, and a tool that feels essential to life itself.
"Yet that wonderful gadget, connecting you to so many fascinating facts, people, news items, apps, gossip and image-defining feedback, may be surreptitiously, progressively chipping away at your health, hormones, sexual performance, brain function and longevity. It may feel like your lifeline, but what if it's actually causing serious problems that you're blaming on something else? What if you're taking sleeping pills, painkillers, anti-seizure drugs, anti-inflammatories or other pharmaceuticals to address something that's being caused by your wireless wonder-phone? It is, after all, emitting a powerful signal that extends for 20-40 feet in all directions around you. Invisible and intangible (to most), yet capable of penetrating cement, metal, plastic, rubber, clothing and human bodies, this radiation is the ultimate silent, stealthy, insidious invader. You'll never see it coming, and it will be the last thing you'll ever think of blaming if you're sick, exhausted, have cancer, become infertile, suffer loss of libido, have ADD/autism, lose your hearing or develop any kind of neurological condition.
"The cell phone industry and Internet service-providers will tell you that Wi-Fi radiation is safe--and we all sowant to believe them so we can continue our addictive love affairs with our phones. But the science says otherwise--definitively, categorically and conclusively--with thousands of studies and medical data now confirming the harmful effects of the radiation that's saturating our urban environments. I could inundate you with compelling scientific data ... but do you really want to know? . . .
