Doctor's Information Package

Addressed to Medical Professionals. Useful to all. Updated July 19, 2014

The following package is for those who wish to approach their doctors with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiation.  It contains links organized into specific health effect categories.  These links can be printed out according to personal areas of need or concern, and used to start a dialogue with doctors who may not as yet have associated certain health conditions with EMF or RF exposure.  

The introductory letter on pages 1 and 2 contains a link to the entire list, and may be useful to your doctor as a reference tool. 


"Dear Medical Professional:

"Your patient has asked us for support in providing you with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation, recently reclassified by the WHO/IARC as a Class 2B, possible human carcinogen.

"This WHO risk category also includes lead, DDT, chloroform, and dioxane, and is relevant to all wireless devices emitting radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, including cordless phones, cell phones, IPads, Wi-Fi routers, wireless games, baby monitors, and smart meters . . .

"Many doctors have already given medical advice to their patients by way of a medical letter or note on a prescription form stating that the patient should avoid, for medical reasons, living in a residence or residential complex at which a wireless meter is operating in order to maintain their health or avoid aggravating a medical condition. This medical advice stating the health condition and advising the patient that they should avoid ongoing exposure to wireless radiofrequency and smart meter emissions will allow your patient to participate in the Human Rights Action currently underway. We are hopeful that the individual's right to protect their health as advised by their medical doctor will be upheld by the Human Rights Tribunal, and this forced exposure within their own home to undesirable microwave radiofrequency emissions will be replaced with reasonable and respectful accommodation by BC Hydro . . . "

Information categories contained in this package: 

  1. Microwave Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Radiation - General 
  2. Smart Meters
  3. Interference with medical devices / Smart Meter Risk
  4. Children
  5. EHS/ES - Electrosensitivity
  6. Diabetes
  7. Heart

This comes from direct lobbying experience over many years. In order of effectiveness, starting with the strongest:

  1. Direct face-to-face meetings with legislators and government executives in their Provincial or Federal offices 
  2. Direct face-to-face meetings with legislators and government executives in their local offices. 
  3. Phone call to staffers. 
  4. Handwritten letters. 
  5. Printed letters (if on letterhead from powerful persons) 
  6. Printed letters 
  7. Email is not even looked at; there is just too much for staffers to do.

PETITION

PETITION BACKGROUND

This resolution is intended to address the concerns of citizens regarding the escalating growth of wireless radiation in British Columbia. We invite the signatures of medical health professionals and researchers who wish to join with us in bringing attention to the hazards of electromagnetic radiation. 

Hello Fellow Citizens:

As citizens of British Columbia, we have created a British Columbia Resolution on the Proliferation of Electromagnetic Radiation and we are requesting your support. The resolution is at the address below. http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/the-british-columbia-1

The purpose of the resolution is to force our Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall to take action to implement the precautionary principle...rather than continuing on his current course of willful blindness and denial. It will ultimately be delivered to the British Columbia Provincial Health Office.

We are seeking the signatures of medical and other health professionals as well as all concerned citizens. Beneath the signature panel there is space to add comments... your comments are especially useful to us and welcomed.

We request your consideration towards signing our resolution. If you know of others that may be interested in supporting this initiative, we would appreciate you forwarding this email to them.

Thank you for your time, and good luck in fighting this fight that we must win...at any cost.

Ron Gordon Maple Ridge BC

"When injustice becomes institutionalized, resistance becomes a duty."

THE HAZARD: 

Whereas the population of the Province of British Columbia is not currently protected by effective and authoritative guidelines or regulations governing exposure to involuntary or incidental, non-thermal, electromagnetic radiation in their homes and public places, the British Columbia, Canada, organization - Citizens for Safe Technology - in collaboration with the undersigned, hereby passes the following Resolution. 

THE RESOLUTION:

  1. Guidelines and regulations to protect the population of British Columbia from the effects of all forms, frequencies and intensities of electromagnetic radiation must be immediately instituted. 
  2. The guidelines and regulations mentioned in Article 1 must be based on the findings of independent, non industry-affiliated studies which include, but are not limited to, research into the effects of low-level, non-thermal pulsed radiation; (1) 
  3. The Provincial Health Officer for British Columbia must publicly acknowledge and immediately invoke the Precautionary Principle (2) with regards to the protection of the population of the Province of British Columbia against the known and/or potential harmful acute and chronic effects of exposure to all forms, frequencies and intensities of electromagnetic radiation; and 
  4. Direct and immediate action must be taken to halt the proliferation of, and subsequently reduce, the non-consensual exposure of children and pregnant mothers to electromagnetic radiation in all areas of society, most notably through the removal of wireless internet connections in schools, libraries, and other public places.

"Most parents don't know that children should keep their iPads away from the body and that antennas in the iPad should be turned off for children's use.

"In the past few years, iPad has become many adults' best friend and children's babysitter. It is used as a computer, eBook reader, camera, video/music player, word processor, communication device, drawing tool, game pad, and more.

"iPad contains radio transmitters and receivers. When on, iPad sends and receives radio frequency (RF) energy through its antenna. The Wi-Fi and Bluetooth antennas are located behind the screen to the left of the Home button, and behind the Apple logo... A cellular antenna is located at the top edge of iPad Wi-Fi+3G, when oriented with the Home button at the bottom."

"When ifixit.com dissected a Wi-Fi+3G iPad, they discovered not three but five antennas, including the frame of the LCD screen being a giant antenna. . . .

". . . to be sure that human exposure to RF energy does not exceed the FCC, IC, and European Union guidelines, always follow these instructions and precautions: Orient the device in portrait mode with the Home button at the bottom of the display, or in landscape mode with the cellular antenna (located under the black edge at the top of the device) away from your body or other objects..."

"This means if you don't handle the iPad exactly as instructed, the RF radiation can exceed governments' limits for human exposure. Unfortunately, most parents and teachers have no idea about this, and have never communicated the manufacturer's instructions to children who are using iPads. . . .

  • RF/EMF: 2B Possible Carcinogen 
  • 900 blasts of radiofrequency per hour 
  • Comparison between iPad and cellphone radiation 
  • Differences between the iPad and an AM/ FM radio

Parents for Safe Schools FLYER re iPads

contains excellent information and can be used as a handout

Please feel free to use as a handout.  

The information points out important safety warnings and recommendations contained within the user's manual and informs people on the placement of transmitters/antennae on the device in relation to the body. It also offers information on the continuous nature of the powerful signals (video below) that is largely absorbed by the user.

Parents can learn, if not already aware, that transmitters can be disabled on the iPad to prevent needless microwave radiation exposure to their child and those nearby while still utilizing educational software, games, books, and other applications available on the device.
