The Looming Health Crisis of Our Time

The Unchecked Proliferation of Wireless Technology - Letter from Jerry Flynn to Premier Clark, January 5, 2015

Jerry Flynn has been a most tireless fighter, determined to expose the health hazards of the wireless proliferation, and especially the BC government's mandatory roll out of wireless smart meters.  If a technology decimates the health of the population, it is neither progressive nor harmless. Only when the public becomes totally aware of the now-indisputable health hazards - especially to the developing fetus and infants - will public pressure be generated to require tighter regulations on what is essentially an unregulated industry.

Please pass this information to all of your contacts, and especially to any/all media contacts that you might have. Also please make copies of the attached letter and give it to your doctor, educators, municipal officials, etc. Everyone in positions of authority and policy/decision-making! 


Dear Premier Clark,

Today, I am sending you a Registered Letter addressed to your Box 9041 address in Victoria on this subject matter (see attached), about which any informed person can draw but one conclusion: Dr. Perry Kendall, British Columbia's Provincial Health Officer, is deliberately keeping you and your government ignorant!

Due to the gravity and scope of this problem, I am obliged to also send it to every member of parliament, and others. This ongoing deliberate suppression of the truth by corrupt officials in Health Canada, the wireless and telecom, and electric utility industries, who are aided and abetted by a stifled news media and certain members of your Government must stop!

Sincerely,
Jerry Flynn

Why children absorb more microwave radiation than adults: The consequences

Journal of Microscopy and Ultrastructure - L. Lloyd Morgan, S. Kesari, Devra Lee Ddavis

Highlights

  • Children absorb more microwave radiation (MWR) than adults.
  • MWR is a Class 2B (possible) carcinogen
  • The fetus is in greater danger than children from exposure to MWR
  • The legal exposure limits have remained unchanged for decades
  • Cellphone manuals warnings and the 20 cm rule for tablets/laptops violate the "normal operating position" regulation.

Abstract

Computer simulation using MRI scans of children is the only possible way to determine the microwave radiation (MWR) absorbed in specific tissues in children. Children absorb more MWR than adults because their brain tissues are more absorbent, their skulls are thinner and their relative size is smaller. MWR from wireless devices has been declared a possible human carcinogen. Children are at greater risk than adults when exposed to any carcinogen. Because the average latency time between first exposure and diagnosis of a tumor can be decades, tumors induced in children may not be diagnosed until well into adulthood. The fetus is particularly vulnerable to MWR. MWR exposure can result in degeneration of the protective myelin sheath that surrounds brain neurons. MWR-emitting toys are being sold for use by young infants and toddlers. Digital dementia has been reported in school age children. A case study has shown when cellphones are placed in teenage girls' bras multiple primary breast cancer develop beneath where the phones are placed. MWR exposure limits have remained unchanged for 19 years. All manufacturers of smartphones have warnings which describe the minimum distance at which phone must be kept away from users in order to not exceed the present legal limits for exposure to MWR. The exposure limit for laptop computers and tablets is set when devices are tested 20 cm away from the body. Belgium, France, India and other technologically sophisticated governments are passing laws and/or issuing warnings about children's use of wireless devices. . . .

Microwave Health Issues - Olle Johansson's talk in Gibraltar (Three Parts)

Health Effects of Electromagnitic Fields: A Neuroscientist's Views - Talk delivered on October 7, 2014.

This meeting was excellently and elegantly organized by The Environmental Safety Group (ESG)  that is concerned about the proliferation and power of mobile phone masts in Gibraltar.

The talk deals with EHS and the ways forward and is broken down into 3 parts of which, this Part 1, is 54 min, 28 sec. Part 2 is 55 min, 46 sec, Part 3 is 56 min, 12 sec. A very well attended talk, with a questions and answers session in Part 3.

When will the right precautions be implemented towards children at home, and in schools?

These cell towers are being placed on school property -- next to even preschool playgrounds and sometimes directly on the rooftops of the schools themselves -- all over America.

Why? . . .

" . . . The first test of a new Langley Township cell tower policy that requires a poll of people near a proposed project did not go well for the phone companies, with the rejection of the first two towers presented under the new rules.

"Telus wanted to fill in coverage gaps and reduce dropped calls by building two new towers, one 45 metres tall at 4997 256 St. and the other 50 metres tall at 20470 88 Ave.  

"They were the first cell towers to be considered since the Township adopted a new process in September, 2013, following several drawn-out public hearings on cell tower placement in Langley.  

"It is believed the Township is the first Metro Vancouver community to order referenda on cell towers. . . .

"The new municipal "telecommunication tower policy" requires an 80 per cent "yes" vote from people living near any proposed new cell phone antenna installation. . . .  

"While the Township doesn't actually have legal authority to prevent construction of cell towers, Marlatt said Industry Canada, the federal authority that does have the power, will likely defer to the Township. . . .

Smart Meters: Separating Fact from Fiction

Commonly Made Statements: What's the Real Story? (July 2013)

Updated 2013

When asked about the impacts that "Smart Meters" will have on B.C., representatives of Hydro have a standard set of responses-- a scripted "mantra" intended to justify their decision to install these meters. In form letters and interviews, advertisements and news reports, the statements are repeated and repeated again.

To explain their inaccuracies and clarify facts is a highly repetitive exercise, problematic when Hydro representatives and government officials make the same false statements over time, and when reports in the mainstream media continue to present these inaccuracies as truth.

The following collection of "Frequently Asked Questions and Statements made about Microwave/ Radiofrequency Radiation" contains information that helps to separate the fact from the fiction. Hopefully it will answer any questions regarding "Smart Meters": their safety and their health effects, their costs and impacts on B.C. and beyond.
