Parents Fight Wireless Radiation in Schools

Interview with Dafna Tachover, attorney representing Wi-Fi victims

Dafna Tachover was a highly-paid professional (lawyer, IT professional) in NYC when she became severely electrosensitive as a result of wireless Apple laptops and had to live off-grid in a cabin for several years to regain her health. You can read her story here:

She came back fighting for others, especially kids in schools, to prevent them from being made as sick as she was.

In light of insurance EMR-liability exclusion clauses, think really hard before installing more Wi-Fi and cell antennas in or around schools, hospitals, and other public places. Return to wired connections to avoid the insurance and liablilty implications.

Cell Phone Radiation Causes Car Accidents

Power to the People Canada (Blog) Walt McGinnis

"Does Radio Frequency Radiation (RFR) emitted from your cellphone scramble your brain? If your answer is that is not possible, why then are drivers having up to ten times more accidents after they end their calls? Evidence, decades old, appears to point to brain malfunction induced by wireless radiation as the unspoken cause of higher rates of car accidents."

 -Walt McGinnis

 " . . . It appeared that many industry funded researchers did not notice that the data they provided in their research indicated that the cause of the accidents was not primarily driver distraction but something much more profoundly disturbing. The evidence from the Redelmeier Study as well as subsequent studies have shown that RFR emitted from cellphones was inhibiting brain function and possibly causing car accidents.(2)

"Needless to say the ramifications of this revelation, if proven to be true, were enormous, especially because back in 1998 the wireless industry was about to explode into one of the largest and most profitable industries in the world. The idea that the RFR emitted from wireless devices was dangerous and a health threat was an inconvenient truth that stood between the industry and hundreds of billions of dollars in profits.  

"Had the truth emerged then and was acted upon I think that it would not be a stretch to say the course of history would have been changed with hundreds of thousands of lives saved and millions of illnesses avoided. But it would not be so. It is eighteen years later and it seems the wireless industry has effectively kept a lid on the evidence. How they did it and why they were successful is the topic of another very important discussion.

"The Redelmeier Study was well constructed and the data meticulously recorded. Risk factors were carefully evaluated and there were a large number of drivers involved. Everything was set up to generate good data. . . .

Warning Labels for cell phones and Wi-Fi: Bill C-648 to protect Canadians from radiation

Warning Labels for Radio Apparatus Act - Conservative MP Terence Young / C4ST - February 1, 2015 - Ottawa Press Conference (CTV Winnipeg News Video)

Conservative MP Terence Young calls for more effective warning labels on cell phones, Wi-Fi, portable phones, baby monitors, and all wireless devices sold in Canada, in order to protect Canadians and empower them with the information they need to understand potential serious risks to their health from long-term continuous use of these devices, and the greater risk to children. This is the first time a government representative has brought a Bill past a first reading re health warnings and labelling for wireless devices in Canada.  He has multi-party support for this Private Members Bill. 



A new article in The Tyee. Near the end of the article, it includes one Industry response, which seems to be Industry's old-fashioned style of response that insults the intelligence of the public with regard to corporate positioning and strategies. The article ends: "He [MP Young] said there may not be any evidence now, but he is confident that one day it will be shown that cell phones do cause cancer."

Is there a connection between cell phones and cancer? Here are 44 reasons to believe that cell phones can cause cancer.

  • Cell phones emit microwave radio-frequency radiation. Fact. 
  • This radiation has the ability to penetrate our bodies. Fact. 
  • Our governments do virtually nothing to protect us from these dangers. Fact. 

And yet there is strong evidence and multiple peer reviewed studies that indicate that cell phones cause cancer and other diseases.

Take a look for yourself at these facts. But first let's just consider what cancer is. . . .

Citizens warn of Wi-Fi risk

Input for Municipal Councils re community Wi-Fi and cell tower policies

" . . . City council heard pleas, facts and personal histories focusing on this message Thursday night from residents of Salmon Arm and as far afield as the North Shuswap and West Kelowna.

"Council chambers were filled to overflowing Jan. 29 as about 120 citizens gathered to provide information and opinions on cell phone tower placement, cell phones and Wi-Fi - and urged council to protect citizens. . . .

"Precedents have been set," said Salmon Arm resident Shelley Corbin, noting Salmon Arm has the right to develop its own safe antenna location policy. . . .

"When resident Eric Hansen spoke, he complimented speakers about the information they were imparting.

"I'm proud to say I don't see any zealots, I don't see any crackpots, I don't see any weirdos. What I see are my neighbours...," he said.

"At the end of the three-hour meeting, Cooper thanked people for sharing their views.

"You can give me all the experts in the world, but the people who came up and told their personal stories, they meant the most to me."

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. . . .
