from C4ST to Victoria MP Murray Rankin (Canada, June 2016)
" . . . 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. . . .
SPIN VS FACT (C4ST)
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:
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:
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." . . .

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. . . .
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."
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."

Citizens For Safe Technology
"Wi-Fi: Is It Safe?"
Citizens for Safe Technology is a not-for-profit educational society made up of parents, grandparents, teachers, business professionals, scientists, politicians and lawyers concerned about the exponential increase in public exposure to harmful wireless technologies.
We believe a profound urgency exists to protect the unsuspecting public, especially children, youth and pregnant mothers from unsafe wireless technologies.
