WI-FI /CELL PHONES INTRODUCTION to TOPIC



Dec 7
2014



From the Arne Naess Seminar, 18th October 2014, Oslo, Norway.

Introduction by: Einar Flydal, retired from the ICT industry, business and academia
Main presentation by: Martin L. Pall
Questions / comments from the audience

Organizers: Einar Flydal in cooperation with Arne Naess Chair in global justice and environment.

The video has English speech and Norwegian text.  Prof. Martin Pall's presentation begins at 8 min 15 sec. 

"I think this is going to be one of the major issues in the next few years. Most people are not aware of this, and the people who are mostly know the old data - and there's a lot of new [information] on this that's extremely, extremely important" ~ Prof Martin Pall, Oslo, 18 October 2014.

The following presentation, given by Professor emeritus Martin L. Pall of Washington State University, explains that governments and industry bodies claiming wireless technologies to be harmless are, tragically and verifiably, wrong.

Whilst some governments - such as those in the UK, Canada and the US - continue to hide behind "obsolete" and "out of date" thermal models set by private industry groups decades ago, eminent physicist, geneticist and cell biologist Prof. Martin L. Pall carefully explains in this brilliant presentation that pathophysiological effects from non-thermal exposures are demonstrable and the mechanisms for this harm are understood and replicable.

Pall shows us how, with an increasing preponderance of so-called 'smart' meters, 'smart' phones and other microwave-emitting technologies and infrastructure, the health of the public is in danger; that our young are the most at risk and that urgent action to protect people is now required.

Prof. Pall's extensive research over recent decades into this issue shows that:

Microwaves damage humans at levels far below present radiation limits, through mechanisms at the cellular level

These biological mechanisms can - completely or partially - be behind growing "unexplained illnesses" like sudden cardiac death, ME, weakened immune system, fibromyalgia, post-traumatic stress, and increased DNA breakage, etc.

The effects can, in principle, affect all multicellular animals, and is proven, for example, in mussels (molluscs)

You need neither New Age, tendentious science or conspiracy theories to justify this.

Some of Pall's many peer-reviewed studies on this issue are listed in the final two minutes of this presentation.

The conclusion to be drawn from these revelations is that we are now, without question, facing a new and increasingly present environmental pollutant and the time for government dilly-dallying is over. This issue carries huge implications for the environment, human health, construction and placement of cell towers, smart meters, computers in schools and care for individuals presenting with symptoms of EHS.

Prof. Pall's first article on EMFs and their role in VGCC-activation earned a place in the "Global Medical Discovery" list of the most important articles in medicine in 2013, and in this lecture he provides up-to-date information on a problem that cannot be ignored.

Please share it widely.

Dr. Erica Mallery-Blythe - Electromagnetic Radiation, Health and Children 2014

founder of PHIRE (Physicians' Health Initiative for Radiation and Environment)



Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe presented an outstanding talk recently on electromagnetic fields and their possible effects at a meeting of the Physicians' Health Initiative for Radiation and Environment (PHIRE). In this talk she discussed the difficulty of assessing exposure accurately, the various known mechanistic effects of electromagnetic fields, and the varied susceptibility of human beings to different exposures of various kind. This is one of the best you'll find anywhere at the moment to learn about some of the possible effects of mobile phones, cordless phones, WiFi and tablets, and it's freely available online.

Hamburg Stops Wi-Fi in Schools

Plan to install "on ice" due to danger to student health

Key words: Cell Phones, Children, Germany, Health, Precaution, RF Radiation, School, Wi-Fi

Translated from the German:

" . . . The Authority announced by the school after the summer holidays measures to equip the students three Hamburg district schools and three high schools each with tablet and notebook, are for the time being on ice. Reason is that the wireless Internet access terminals to be enabled by the wireless network WLAN. Both potential health consequences are unclear, and legal frameworks.

"Six schools replace board, textbooks, notebooks and pencils Laptop and Tablet in class," it said in May in a statement presented by Senator school Ties Rabe. During the two-year project should thus up to 1,300 students, which is about 30 percent of children and adolescents participate in these schools. . . .

"The correlation of the increase of overwork, headaches, ADHD and mental illness with the growing use of digital media is worrying," said Ulmer psychiatrist and brain researcher Prof. Manfred Spitzer. According to the state of science whose harmfulness was clear that stress could also lead to impaired concentration, in addition to sperm damage to DNA strand breaks and thus cancer.  The manufacturer, as well as the Federal Office for Radiation Protection, would already warning of a body-hugging use the equipment and require minimum distances so the doctors.  Neither school board nor health authority of the Hanseatic city could respond to such warnings . . .

Cell Phones: Invisible Hazards in the Wireless Age

It's like the hissing of pots and the cooking of cells
twisting in knots like the book of the kells.
it's the clotting of minds - it's a fight with the heart
the rotting of time, it's the light and the dark
more than plain rumor, it's a brain tumor state
my strains duplicate - pains accumulate
mutation awaits - the death wish of all cells
it's the personal assistant with all whistles and bells
started off with a clock, to replace the wrist watch
then a torch, radio, camera - in case the cyst pops
now we can send clips off from cliff tops to inbox
and satellite locator, in place to assist cops
it's the all in one ultimate modern go go gadget
that is why we never leave it behind - it's oh so magic and
oh no tragic - the toy has declared you hexxed
five hundred thousand brain tumors a year - whos next?

breaker breaker one nine
we've made the same mistake for some time
my dome is splitting - its a bleak disease
cos my phone's emitting these frequencies

danger danger beware
they've known the risk has always been there
my free minutes are used - my minds left numb
three tumors removed now i'm blind deaf and dumb

i have sleepless nights and sty in my eye
who's gonna own up to this fly in the pie?
our government's plan is to leave us high and dry
and the FDA policy is to lie and deny
it goes one ear - but not out the other.
i aquired alzeimers and i doubt ill recover
who's responsible for the wear and tear on my brain
i know that im here but they declare me insane
i phoned there to complain but was waisting my time
on hold for an hour and i'm still eighth in the line (ouch)
it radiates all the time - a razor slice day and night
EMF is worse than ultraviolet rays of light
melting the runway of ice before our maiden flight
Im one cat trading life with a plague of mice
we're not brave, we're vague and afraid to fight
we've turned grey and face paler than a shade of white
David Icke gave us sight, light and great advise
but whos gonna save the children of the neighbours wife
when they bake alive they'll cunjor up a wild excuse
giving cellphones to kids is just child abuse
we think it's all fine with our extra talk time
but phone credit is suicide - next to chalk lines
it's death, it's war crime - genocide -
a walk by a fork in right eye.
you're an egg and pork pie half the world has a cellphone -
that's over 3 billion don't call me - i won't answer -- but you can call me trillion

breaker breaker one nine
we've made the same mistake for some time
my dome is splitting - it's a bleak disease
and vodafone is commiting indecencies

danger danger beware
they've known the risk has always been there
my free minutes are used - my minds left numb
three tumors removed now i'm blind deaf and dumb

hands up - who uses blue tooth?
research the truth or youre a few screws loose
you may as well do a head stand today in a bed pan
your a dead man talking - a grenade in ya left hand
we're falling down the ladders of a nation of snakes
the patron of saints cant heal impatient mistakes
awake to the waning of the birds and bees
its the realm of EMFs that are murdering these
its an industry blinded by senseless greed
a centipede that stings us with endless fees
damage occurs even with the shortest of use
phone makers want insurance but insurers refuse
It's dirty business, providers have death on their books
they provide us with lies - the usual method of crooks
their advertising is all based on sensation
the flags are rising on this plague to end nations
your cellphone is harmful there's proof by induction
causing nerve-cell, blood-cell and DNA destruction
this epidemic has only begun
you should recognise your phone is the smoking gun

Reality Check: Can We Auto-Correct Humanity?

Richard Williams, an American rapper, explains in this video the current state of our social lives.

Why I Refuse to Let Technology Control Me. You need not delete your social networks or destroy your cell phones, the message is simple, be balanced, be mindful, be present, be here. :)



Did you know the average person spends 4 years of his life looking down
at his cell phone?

Kind of ironic, ain't it?

How these touch-screens can make us lose touch.

But it's no wonder in a world filled with

IMac's, iPads and iPhones

So many "i"'s, so many selfies, not enough "us"'s and "we"'s
See, Technology has made us more selfish and separate than ever

Cause while it claims to connect us, connection has gotten no
better

And let me express first

Mr Zuckerberg, not to be rude, but you should re-classify Facebook
to what it is:

An anti-social network

Cause while we may have big friend lists

So many of us are friendless, all alone

Cause friendships are more broken than the screens on our very phones

We sit at home on our computers measuring self worth by
numbers of followers and Likes

Ignoring those who actually love us

It seems we'd rather write an angry post

Than talk to someone who might actually hug us

Am I bugging? You tell me...

I asked a friend the other day lets meet up face to face

They said all right, what time you wanna Skype?

I responded with omg, srs, and then a bunch of smh's

And realized what about me?

Do I not have the patience to have conversation without
abbreviation?

This is the generation of media over stimulation

Chats have been reduced to snaps

The news is 140 characters

Videos are 6 seconds at high speed

And you wonder why ADD is on the rise faster than 4G LTE

But, get a load of this

Studies show the attention span of the average adult today

Is one second lower than that of a gold fish

.

So if, you're one of the few people or aquatic animals that have
yet to click off or close this video, congratulations.

Let me finish by saying you do have a choice, yes

But this one my friends we cannot Auto-Correct - we must do it
ourselves

Take control or be controlled, Make a decision

Me? 
No longer do I want to spoil a precious moment by recording it
with a phone

I'm just gonna keep them

I don't wanna take a picture of all my meals anymore -
I'm just gonna eat them

I don't want the new app, the new software, or the new update.

And If I wanna post an old photo of myself who says I have to wait
until Thursday

I'm so tired of performing in the pageantry of vanity

And conforming to this accepted form of digital insanity
.
Call me crazy but, I imagine a world where we
smile when we have low batteries

Cause that will mean we'll be one bar closer - to humanity.

Former Nokia Technology Chief: Mobile phones wrecked my health

Former Nokia CTO's multiple sclerosis and... Nokia's patents to prevent it?

" . . . Nokia's former Technology Chief, Matti Niemela, was involved in the development the world's first mobile phones, but fell seriously ill himself from mobile-phone microwave radiation.

"In addition, he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Some studies suggest that radiation may increase the risk of even MS.

"For Tampere-based Matti Niemelä, age 44, life was like in the movies when he as a young man was recruited to work for Nokia in 1997. The brilliant young man quickly advanced to become Nokia's Chief Technology Officer for ten years, and was involved in developing the world's first mobile phones, memory sticks and WLAN [Wi-Fi] connections.

"In 2007, Niemela's career hit a brick wall as his health finally failed. Today, he is only able to move using a walker. Niemela refuses to use a wheelchair.  

"The irony of this is that I'm no longer able to use any of those devices that I had been developing, Niemelä says with a smile. . . .

"TORONTO, Oct. 20, 2014 /CNW/ -

"A survey published today shows that a hundred candidates running for school Trustee in next week's election say school Boards must reassess the safety of Wi-Fi.

"The survey, published by Canadians For Safe Technology has revealed that the safety of Wi-Fi in schools is strongly on the radar of parents and teachers across Ontario.

"Wireless technology is being adopted in our schools faster than our understanding of its possible side effects," said Howard Kaplan, Toronto District School Board Trustee for York Centre.

"There are enough teachers unions asking for caution that it's clear we must slow down and examine the safety of so many wireless devices in our schools," he said.

"Kaplan is part of the Toronto Board's Learning Technology Workforce, and is also Chair of the Health and Mental Well Being Committee for Toronto schools.

"I sit at the intersection of technology and health and there are enough warnings that we can't ignore them any more," he said. . . .

" . . . Among the suggestions from candidates is that teachers be allowed to turn off a Wi-Fi router when not in use, and that students be told about the fine-print health warnings that come with most wireless devices installed in their schools.

URGENT ACTION NEEDED: Mandatory wireless in all American-made cars

Peril on the Road: Wireless Mandated Vehicles


N.B. Comment deadline is now past. The following is for your information:

"The US Dept. of Transportation is accepting comments until midnight, Monday, Oct. 20.

"When you think things can't get crazier, things get crazier. If this is approved, all American-made cars will be wireless.


"Aside from health, what are the safety implications of ramping up wireless exposures to millions of electro-intolerant drivers?

Not in our car!

"The Department of Transportation is proposing to require "vehicle-to-vehicle wireless communication" in all light vehicles in the United States . . .

"Please make a comment this weekend even if it is a brief statement. Building a record of opposition is very important.

"It's not going to make our roadways any safer if we're causing heart problems, blurry vision, or headaches in drivers. Submit Your Comments in 3 Places:

Olle Johansson "Health effects of electromagnetic fields"

Olle Johansson at the Open Mind Conference 2014, Copenhagen.



"Health effects of electromagnetic fields" Olle Johansson is associate professor at the Experimental Dermatology Unit, Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.  

"He is a leading authority in the field of EMF radiation and health effects. He has also been a professor in basic and clinical neuroscience at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

"He has published more than 650 original articles, reviews, book chapters and conference reports within the field of basic and applied neuroscience, dermatoscience and health effects of electromagnetic fields.

"His studies have been widely recognised in the media, including newspapers, radio and TV, as well as on the Internet, both nationally and internationally. He has on-going international scientific collaborations with e.g. Japan, Brazil, South Africa, Serbia, Germany, the UK and the USA.

"Olle Johansson's presentation covers the historic background of electricity and electromagnetic fields, how suspicions arose early on concerning fields and signals producing negative health effects and how this led to today's global public discussion about the subject. It will also touch upon the functional impairment electro hypersensitivity.

"The lecture will go into depth about the scientific research results regarding the health effects of electromagnetic fields and the urgent need for independent research projects that need to be initiated to ensure our public health.

"These projects should be entirely independent of all types of commercial interests as public health cannot have a price-tag. This is the responsibility of the democratically elected body of every country.

"The body of evidence on EMF requires a new approach to protection of public health; the growth and development of the fetus, and of children; and argues for strong preventative actions. These conclusions are built upon prior scientific and public health reports documenting the following:

1) Low-intensity (non-thermal) bioeffects and adverse health effects are demonstrated at levels significantly below existing exposure standards.

2) ICNIRP and IEEE/FCC public safety limits are inadequate and obsolete with respect to prolonged, low-intensity exposures.

3) New, biologically-based public exposure standards are urgently needed to protect public health world-wide.

4) It is not in the public interest to wait.
