How To Remediate WiFi Radiation - Computer

WiFi Radiation - Dangers of WiFi - See It Measured

This excellent video provides a simple, yet profound lesson on how to turn off WiFi effectively, and what steps must be taken to assure that you will not be "wi-fried".



The radio frequency radiation being transmitted from your wireless router or modem is extremely toxic and detrimental to your health. Notice how high the measurements are on the RF meter! Most of us are living and working in this type of RF radiation exposure every single day and night. The fix, or remediation is simple. Plug your modem or router into your computer using an Ethernet connection (hardwire), and "disable" the wireless function on your modem or router. This is very important for the health and safety of all those in your home or office. If you need to use the wireless function, then turn it on for a short time, do your task or watch your movie, then disable it once again. Never leave your wireless internet on all night as it will cause sleep disturbances which lead to even worse health issues. The fix is simple! Ethernet cord and disable the wireless function.

There's an important new book out that will likely be very useful for this and other related issues: your right to know; how to use the law to access government information; how to access what government hides; how to hold institutions accountable; how to request pertinent info from government using both informal and formal requests. This information is rightfully free because it is a public interest issue.   


"In their recently published book "Your Right to Know", journalists Jim Bronskill and David McKie have done yeomans' work explaining how Canadians can use freedom of information requests to get government secrets. But, at the federal level, it's work they shouldn't have needed to do -- pointing to another problem with Canada's broken access to information laws.  

"Introduced in 1980 by Pierre Trudeau's Liberals, the Access to Information Act gave Canadians a limited right to request government records. The bureaucracy's filing cabinets could now metaphorically be opened by anyone -- unless the records in them included 75 different kinds of information that would still be considered secret.  

"But, even with those limits, the Trudeau administration seemed to have little interest in telling voters about their newfound rights or how to exercise them.  

"Just before the act came into force, the Globe and Mail told readers the government would be "placing posters in post offices and public libraries" to advertise the new program. But "it plans nothing else in the way of public information," a deficiency noted by information commissioner Inger Hansen in her first annual report. . . .

Bill C-648 - REQUEST your MP Support Bill C-648

Bill C-648 - An Act Respecting the Prevention of Potential Health Risks From Radio frequency Electromagnetic Radiation

From C4ST's Frank Clegg:

February 15, 2015

Good afternoon,  

As you are aware, we joined MP Terence Young in Ottawa for the introduction of Bill C-648 - "The Warning Labels for Radio Apparatus Act". [Bill C-648] We are very pleased with the cross-party support we have received with 15 MP's publicly committing to support the bill to date, including former NDP health critic MP Libby Davis who requested to be a seconder on the Bill. We also received coverage in ten separate media outlets on the day's following the event.

We are disappointed, but not surprised, with the reaction from the Industry. Their dismissive comments tell us they will continue to keep their safety warnings buried in their manuals. Warnings that clearly state a minimum distance that all devices should be held away from our bodies and those of our children. See CWTA (Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association) comments . . . .  in response to Bill C-648. This lobby association represents most major telecom companies in Canada.

Momentum is building around the world in countries dealing with the unsafe use of technology. The French Parliament recently passed a law requiring all advertisements regarding cell phones must now show a device (ear buds or speaker mode) that limits exposure to radiation. The same French law banned the use of WI-FI in day care centers and nurseries for children three years of age and younger. See . . . our interpretation of the new law.

Taiwanese lawmakers just last week passed new legislation in which parents who allow children younger than two years of age to use tablets and smartphones face fines. In Belgium it is illegal to market cell phones to children younger than 7 years of age.

While the 15 supportive MPs to date is good start to Bill C-648, there are another 293 MP's across Canada that share in the responsibility to protect Canadians. We ask that you . . .  send an e-mail to your MP. If your MP is on the list of supporters found in the middle of the campaign page, please thank them. If they are not, we ask you to send them an email outlining why you think they should support this important bill. We have supplied suggested points for you to consider.  

C4ST will be in Ottawa next week discussing Bill C-648 with select MPs. If you receive a positive response to your email please let me know by replying to this email, and I will contact your MP to see if we can set up a meeting to discuss further. All Canadians have a right to know that there is a safe way to use and enjoy technology. Bill C-648 is a major step to help raise awareness.

Sincerely,

Frank Clegg

Dr. Lennart Hardell's recent study on glioma has been evaluated using the Hill viewpoints and is powerful enough to classify RF-EMF as a Group 1 carcinogen.  "Conclusions Based on Hill's viewpoints and his discussion on how these issues should be used, the conclusion of this review is that glioma and acoustic neuroma are caused by RF-EMF emissions from wireless phones.  According to the IARC Preamble (54), the classification should be group 1, i.e., "the agent is carcinogenic to humans", and urgent revision of current guidelines for exposure is needed."

PETITION 

"Stop downplaying the health effects and cancer risks from RF EMF radiation! Please move Radio Frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from Class 2b "Possible Human Carcinogen" to Class 1, "Carcinogenic to Humans" now! There is enough cancer, illness and death around the world due to these emissions in addition to an overwhelming body of science showing cancer amongst other very serious health effects, all from this ubiquitously propagated but deadly RF radiation to warrant this increase in classification! Stop playing with the planet's health and life!! Move this radiation to Class 1 now! 

"Due to the relationship with survival the classification of IARC is strengthened and RF-EMF should be regarded as human carcinogen requiring urgent revision of current exposure guidelines." Dr. Lennart Hardell, Swedish Oncologist, MD PhD, Orebro University Hospital, Orebro, Sweden."

"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.
THE EVIDENCE . . .
