No Safe Place

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.

Main themes in this document:

  • Ignored, excluded and incapacitated--citizens forced to flee 
  • Evidence of harmful effects: quick facts 
  • Scientific fact versus political spin and misinformation 
  • Physical effects of EMR 
  • The key symptoms of EHS 
  • Important landmarks on the EMF lifeline 
  • Human rights and human wrongdoings 
  • Questions for you and the government to answer 
  • A taste of what's to come: the real cost of electromagnetic radiation 
  • Scientists call for more protective measures, given increasing evidence of risk from EMFs

WI-FRIED?

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

" . . . 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? . . .

National Toxicology Program (NTP) report on cancer risk from cell phone radiation

Recent evidence-based, scientific research concerning the harmful effects of radiation from wireless devices also provides an update regarding the HESA committee 2015 Report "RADIOFREQUENCY ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION AND THE HEALTH OF CANADIANS".

Cell Phone Radiation Boosts Cancer Rates in Animals

$25 Million NTP Study Finds Brain Tumors - MICROWAVE NEWS - U.S. Government Expected To Advise Public of Health Risk

"The cell phone cancer controversy will never be the same again.

"The U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) is expected to issue a public announcement that cell phone radiation presents a cancer risk for humans. The move comes soon after its recently completed study showed statistically significant increases in cancer among rats that had been exposed to GSM or CDMA signals for two-years.

"Discussions are currently underway among federal agencies on how to inform the public about the new findings. NTP senior managers believe that these results should be released as soon as possible because just about everyone is exposed to wireless radiation all the time and therefore everyone is potentially at risk.

"The new results contradict the conventional wisdom, advanced by doctors, biologists, physicists, epidemiologists, engineers, journalists and government officials, among other pundits, that such effects are impossible . . .

Wall St. Journal on Cellphones Scratches Surface of EMR Threat

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. . . .

Cellphone Radiation Causes Cancer in Rats--25 million dollar U.S. Study

O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

"A $25 million National Toxicology Program study has found that exposure to cellphone radiation caused cancer in rats.

"Radiation health advocates, citing the story yesterday in microwavenews.com, said the study is sufficient evidence to raise the classification of radio-frequency radiation from "possible carcinogenic" (Group 2B) to "carcinogenic (Group1). . .

Royal Canadian Police Summoned on Wi-Fi Threat

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."
