The age-old adage First Do No Harm should be the tempering goal of not only medicine, but government and industry, especially when they team up to deploy new technologies, set policies and serve the people.

This blog exists to reveal and analyze areas in which these powerful groups are failing to "first do no harm."

IARC lead scientist says radiofrequency should be now PROBABLE carcinogen



Studies since IARC designation of RF as class 2b potential carcinogen mean today it should be class 2a, PROBABLE carcinogen, says Dr. Anthony Miller, who worked on assessing the studies for IARC's class 2b decision in 2011.

Other scientists and epidemiologists think that the clear building evidence means RF should be now put into Group 1: a definite carcinogen.

Logic would tell us that whether it is a potential, probable or definite cancer-causing agent, non-thermal RF is not an emission that should be spread in the additive, haphazard manner that is in process - throwing precautions to the wind. But isn't that human nature when it comes to our greed and one-sided vision of how we want the world to be? Like Big Tobacco, Big Wireless continues to possibly, probably or definitely poison the population - although at least, with tobacco a person could escape its reach. Not so with wireless radiation.

new CDC study on growing ADHD blind to Cell Phone Use etiology, shown in the study!

Yahoo health news summarized the new study showing growing cases of ADHD in America's youth, but you had to really dig to find the actual study, which was done by the CDC.

The findings are troubling, but more troubling is the fact that an important causal factor seems to be overlooked, or perhaps intentionally muted.

See the whole document here.

Especially see what is found on page 9 of the study in the Discussion below. It is amazing to witness the blind spot of those who are supposed to care about protecting the public health.

(why are levels rising?)

Other factors, such as increased confidence to treat ADHD among clinicians and
increased exposure to etiologic factors (e.g., environmental contaminants) may also play a role. The magnitude of increases documented within these cross-sectional data warrant future efforts to more fully understand the factors affecting ADHD diagnosis. (these contaminants are not named)

The epidemiological profile for ADHD diagnosis and treatment continues to evolve. Based on parent-reported indicators of health care providerdiagnosed ADHD diagnosis and treatment,more than 1 in 10 school-aged children (11%) had received an ADHD diagnosis by a health care provider by 2011, representing more than 6.4 million children nationally. Nearly 1 in 5nhigh school boys and 1 in 11 high school girls had been diagnosed with ADHD. Of those with a history of ADHD, 83% had current ADHD inn2011 (8.8% nationwide), and 69% of these children and adolescents (6.1% nationwide) were taking medication for ADHD. These estimates are all significantly higher than comparable 2007 estimates...

JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF CHILD & ADOLESCENT PSYCHIATRY
VOLUME - NUMBER- -2013 www.jaacap.org   PAGE 9, Discussion

The findings in this report are subject to several limitations. First, as noted earlier, the ADHD indicators used here did not assess ADHD symptoms but, rather, relied on parent report of diagnosis by a health care provider, which may introduce recall bias. The parent reported indicators have not been clinically validated; however, a recent analysis indicated that parent-reported survey data produced similar estimates as those from insurance claims data, providing evidence of convergent validity for parent-reported ADHD diagnosis by a health care provider.33 Second, the cell phone sample inclusion could have affected the 2011 estimates; analyses of restricted-use data suggest that children living in cell phoneonly households in 2011 were more likely to have current ADHD. than children living in landline phone households (10.0% vs. 8.4%); therefore, non-coverage of cell phoneonly households in 2007 may have underestimated prevalence.
 
Hellooo? Anybody there? Note the potential cell phone exposure connection? Why not see it? Why not say it? Do we not WANT to end this horrible epidemic?

24 hours of cell phone use = 1600 chest x-rays RADIATION EFFECTS, visual proof

Packed with biological, medical and international information 6 years ago this article, "Cell phones as bad as x-rays," is still a groundbreaking article.

Other excerpts:
The U.S. government allowed wireless phones to be put on the market in the 1980s with absolutely no safety testing.
For each minute a child presses a microwave phone to his head, he may suffer radiation damage equivalent to approximately 1.1 chest X-rays.
A whopping average of 39.75 percent of cells taken from mobile phone users showed DNA damage. The blood of one 24-year-old male revealed 63 percent micronucleated cells. He had used a cell phone for 1-2 hours per day for two years, the norm for millions of kids.
The Indian study confirms that the human body, overwhelmed with the continual and brutal assault of wireless radiation, is unable to perform normal cellular repair. Other studies confirm that microwave radiation, which causes a critical need for continual cellular repair, simultaneously shuts down cellular repair mechanisms.(24) The body’s exhausted immune and repair systems eventually become too decimated to do much more than survive poorly.
So the latest studies reveal what no one wants to hear: Kids who endlessly cell-phone socialize, even sleep with perpetually transmitting wireless devices (to keep intermittent conversations on line), are doing immense damage to their tissues, especially the brain and setting up a storm of problems which they will reap in later life. The profiteers or corporate America don’t care. They want their money NOW; to Hell with the future of these kids.

Immune System Dysfunction.

A child’s body, kept in chronic allergic stress by wireless phone radiation, may end up with an exhausted immune system which no longer responds effectively. European experts prognosticate that many people heavily exposed to wireless radiation may eventually suffer the manifestations of electro-hypersensitivity (EHS).(34) EHS is a devastating allergic, auto-immune-like condition in which over-irradiated persons become severely sensitive to both chemical and electromagnetic pollution. Similar to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, EHS symptoms can be so disabling that victims are often forced to isolate themselves from even the smallest electromagnetic fields.

And what about environmental microwave transmitters?

Millions of American kids, struggling with physical disabilities and mental manias, are heavily irradiated not only with Wi-toys, but also by ubiquitous environmental transmitters needed to feed those toys. Nearly 200,000 cell tower and roof top transmitters continuously saturate American cities, playgrounds and passing vehicles with DNA-damaging waves equivalent to ionizing radiation. Living in transmitter-zapped neighborhoods where microwaves pass easily into homes, millions of infants and small kids have no respite from daily, deadly radiation assault....

Wi-Fi compared toThalidomide by microwave weapons expert: harms school children

British retired military microwave expert Barrie Trower warns about what we are doing to our school children with unprecedented microwave radiation in our schools. His experience with microwave weapons means he OUGHT TO KNOW the biological risks, which he continues to back up with studies.

His report states the following:

The Main Risks to Children

These biological processes described as being ‘influenced’ by low-level microwave irradiation may not just damage foetal growth; relying on the same biological processes are:

Blood Brain Barrier – requires 18 months to form and protects the brain from toxins. It is known to be effected.

Myelin Sheath – requires 22 years to build its 122 layers. It is responsible for all thinking, organ and muscle processes.

Brain – requires 20 years to develop (I can assure you, cell phones do not help in its development).

Immune System – requires 18 years to develop. Bone marrow and Bone Density are known to be affected by low-level microwaves as are the immune systems’ white blood cells.

Bones – requires 28 years to develop – as mentioned the moisture content of children makes both the ‘soft bones’ and marrow particularly attractive to microwave irradiation. Bone marrow produces blood cells.

Clearly, our decision makers are overlooking a child illness pandemic hitherto unknown in our 40,000 generations of civilization; which can involve over a half of the World’s exposed mothers / children.
The question remains if anyone will listen in time, or if the world needs to first witness the devastating impact on children and their progeny - with human dna likely damaged irreparably forever - to end the wireless proliferation frenzy, especially Wi-Fi in schools and smart gadget exposures.

Pennsylvania woman's water shut off for refusing smart meter: epileptic children, ailing husband

Some Springdale residents resisting 'smart' water meters
By Braden Ashe Published: Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013, 12:11 a.m. Updated: Wednesday, September 4, 2013

Since the borough shut off her water Friday, Cindee Zlacki of Springdale has been using her neighbor's outdoor hose to fill her ailing husband's nebulizer. It's but one of the many hardships she's faced since refusing to comply with the borough's mandated smart meter system by its Aug. 30 deadline...

“I'm not putting anything in my home that will harm my kids,” she said. “This is a democracy and you're supposed to have choices. I don't understand how the borough thinks they can force me into this position...”

Dear Ms. Zlacki,
This is not a democracy when collectivist monopolies control necessary utility services, and refuse to provide flexible, individual customer service - because they don't HAVE to.

The utility rulers are untouchable and harsh in the same way that communist leaders are: Customers could die from lack of water, but they'll turn it off anyhow. Customers could also become ill from smart meter radiation, which has been shown to be biologically risky - especially for people with health issues or vulnerabilities. 

Living in the growing (smart grid-enabled)

Utility-ruled Utopia means:

System comes before People.

Corporate Collectivism Leads.
Individuals are Expendable.

Why? Greed. Power. Ideology. Corruption. Naivety.

Declassified Intelligence Document: "Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Radiation (Radiowaves and Microwaves) Eurasian Communist Countries"

The following document shows that much science was done and many biological impacts of RF and MW were found very early worldwide.

The point should not be that these are old studies, but that these types of findings continued for decades afterwards, and continue today - even as the worldwide wireless radiation experiment on all living things continues at breakneck speed.

SAVE LIVES: submit comments to FCC to lower Radiofrequency Radiation exposure limits - by September 3


"The FCC is considering changes to its exposure limits and policies for RF radiation. This site is designed to help you learn more about the issues and submit meaningful comments to the FCC."

We can save people from harm and grief by providing meaningful input to the FCC before it is too late. Future generations will be saved from developmental and degenerative and DNA damage if we can get the message through now. Even if the FCC chooses to ignore it, the record will be there to build upon as more people fall victim to non-thermal chronic RF/MW impacts on their health and lives. When the people wake up there will be no stopping them. If the people wake up in time. If they live long enough to wake up. Sad, but true.

Submit comments today, and SAVE LIVES.

"Put Your Phone Down": Words, Music, Art


Here are 50 important words from Motorola Scientist & Researcher Robert C. Kane:
Know...that after that cellular phone user leaves the scene he leaves behind, within the brain of each and every nearby person, the residual effects and damage. These are effects and damage known to the scientific community but not acknowledged by the industry placing their products into the commercial stream.


 
Words mean something.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
A song is worth a thousand pictures.

How chronic LOW POWER radiofrequency and microwaves exposures disturb cell membranes, calcium channels

An expert's talk and a new paper both demonstrate how EMF exposures can produce biological effects.

Why is LOW POWER chronic wireless exposure a much bigger danger to health?
Because chronic exposure to low power microwaves disturb the charge on our cellular membranes.
They open up our cells and we get something called cell leakage.
 
View this expert explanation of how humans are slowly aging and killing themselves and each other by uncritically embracing wireless technology... 
 


SEE ALSO this informative paper that reviews 24 different studies in which EMF exposures produce biological effects that can be blocked by using calcium channel blockers, drugs that block the action of voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs). ..

Martin Pall writes:

One of the great puzzles about the action of electromagnetic fields is how can they influence the biology of our bodies?  The reason that this is such a great puzzle is that these fields are comprised of low energy photons, with energies too low to influence the chemistry of our bodies.  So how can they possibly influence our biology?  Many have argued that the only thing that they can possibly do is to heat things, and yet it is very clear that levels of exposure that produce only the slightest heating have been repeatedly shown to produce substantial biological effects.  Now this puzzle has been solved in a paper with the title of this email, published on line in the Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, freely available on the publisher's web site.

STOP U.S. Smart Grid Advancement Act - to prevent federal smart meter MANDATE



Do you want the amount of energy you use to be rationed without your consent?

Do you want to let Smart Grid computers decide when you can run appliances, A/C, etc., for your family?

Do you want all U.S. utilities to be mandated to use SMART METERS?

The proposed federal Smart Grid Advancement Act will make rationing and smart meters mandatory.

Picture Life in Baraboo, WI, USA: No More Water Service (if you refuse a smart meter)

 Life in Baraboo, Wisconsin, USA
means collecting water from a small pool to flush your toilet
because the city utility disconnected your water.
 
You just want to opt out of their radiofrequency transmitting water meter
for health, security, privacy reasons.
But they would rather disconnect you than allow it.
 
 


Life in Baraboo, Wisconsin, USA
also means an 81-year-old great-grandma
must go without water
for having her own opinion
about the risks of smart water meters.
The city utility also disconnected her water this week.

A Radiant Day video: what the West can learn from the East about radiofrequency radiation

De-Kun Li: indomitable scientist finds EMF impacts: obesity, asthma, sperm damage

Called the "last man standing" among U.S. environmental epidemiologists working on electromagnetic frequencies research, Dr. De-Kun Li continues to break ground in science exploring biological impacts of RF and magnetic radiation exposures. Unlike other scientists who had studied these impacts, he studies the effects in real time, where exposures are measured as they occur. This is called a prospective study, while in retrospective studies "epidemiologists attempt to estimate exposures and conditions that occurred in the past, sometimes many years later."

One year ago Li found that prenatal EMF exposure can cause obesity in children. His earlier studies linked EMF exposure to asthma and decline in sperm quality. In December 2012 the scientist filed testimony before the Maine Public Utility Commission regarding the issues of smart meter safety. He was asked if science supports the conclusion that wireless smart meters are safe. His expert response was, "No."

The previous year (2011) Dr. Li was one of the experts asked to submit input to the California Council on Science and Technology (CCST) for their health study on smart meters. Li's identifying and contact information must have been removed from his letter at the CCST site because it appears in full at another site.   Furthermore, you must have the URL to locate his letter at CCST because their search is "temporarily down." Plus on the "publications" page you can only find the CCST summary with their own bias on it. The page that includes Li and other experts' input is here, and took some digging to find.

So, what was so threatening about Dr. Li's input about smart meter safety to have to try to suppress it? The scientist simply describes how current FCC's RF exposure standards do not protect the public from biological effects and damage. Consequently, chronic smart meter exposures put people at risk.

Digital dementia in the young: our sacrifice to the wireless god


Is the human race willing to sacrifice its young to the wireless god?
A new article describes a "digital dementia" in young people in Korea. Cell phone/gadget companies have created devices to take over normal daily brain functions and capabilities. Addiction to computer internet/games already existed prior to portable devices. The utter lack of vision or foresight as to the ways this technology was bound to affect people is noteworthy. The biological and social damage will continue in the wake of serving the wireless god.

Medical industry CAN'T add 2+2 about EMR biological effects, or WON'T


Dariusz Leszczynski, PhD, asks in his recent blog how doctors can so enthusiastically pursue new wireless medical treatments using focused (non-thermal) non-ionizing radiation to kill cancer and for other good purposes, while they continue to deny any biological effects from the same kind of radiation when used by telecom and energy industries.

Telecom and energy industries expose the entire populations to haphazard mixtures of radiofrequency radiation unlike medical RF, which is controlled and focused to treat biological conditions and diseases. So, either these doctors cannot add 2+2 about biological impacts, or they do not want to.

Sadly, doctors are only human with the same wireless dependency and fascination as other people. They run with the culture's lemming stampede the way doctors did in the age of Big Tobacco. They would rather point their fun RF machines at a few cancer cells than save countless lives in the bigger picture.

Cyber attacks on medical devices a risk with wireless hospitals and devices...SOLUTION

US warns of cyber attacks on medical devices 
 
AFP - US authorities on Thursday warned makers of medical devices and hospital networks to step up efforts to guard against potential cyber attacks.

The US Food and Drug Administration said implanted devices, which could include pacemakers or defibrillators, could be connected to networks that are vulnerable to hackers.

An FDA warning notice was sent to medical device manufacturers, hospitals, medical device user facilities, health care technical staff and biomedical engineers.

It said the agency has recently "become aware of cybersecurity vulnerabilities and incidents that could directly impact medical devices or hospital network operations."

 
The truth is that wireless technology and systems ENABLE hackers. A simple solution to hacking would be to revert to wired systems, and break up networks. For example, medical facilities could have many ports to attach non-wireless personal gadgets and upload/download using fiber optic, speed-of-light, systems. Wired/fiber systems could still be hacked, but not remotely. And not if the wiring has firewalls and does not connect automatically to a central location.

Non-wireless mechanical medical devices are not easily hacked the ways wireless ones are. RF radiation also increases the risk of unintended electromagnetic interference with implants.

Cyber attacks of wireless medicine are only one problem. RF medical devices and systems also expose the most vulnerable people - patients - to increased ambient radiofrequency radiation. RF has repeatedly been shown to interfere with healing and cell membrane functions. It creates biological oxidative stress that functions like other kinds of stress in creating free radical damage. Denial of RF biological risks is like the defense of tobacco smoking as harmless and even healthy a couple decades ago.

Yale study shows fetal impacts of cell phones, hyper-active young with poor memories, different behavior than control




If you care about fetal health sign a new petition to fire the FCC from its responsibility for setting safe radiofrequency radiation limits. FCC has a clear conflict of interest: it works to promote technology first and foremost. Public health is an after-thought.

Sign the petition NOW to release the rogue FCC from the crucial RF exposure standards function, and enlist the EPA instead!

And BTW, think what WiFi pulses and RF transmitting utility "smart" meter bursts are doing to fetuses 24/7. It does not bode well.

PETITION: Fire FCC, enlist EPA to address radiofrequency biological safety limits

FCC staff have a conflict of interest (see below) in deciding what radiofrequency and microwave radiation exposure limits to adopt. They cannot help it: they work for industry. And they do a great job of it. They simply are NOT a public health agency and therefore are UNABLE to prioritize public safety and health.

The FCC does not even monitor high microwave heating limits on cellular antennas, according to an established independent organization's recent investigative report. Does this inspire confidence in the FCC's concern for protecting public health?

Let's fire the FCC from its RF standards responsibilities, which it cannot handle properly. Please SIGN THIS PETITION to get the ball rolling. Let's get congress to enlist the EPA and create meaningful, biological exposure limits - it is our best hope at this point.

*************************************************************************

W.E.E.P. article excerpt

Barris considers it peculiar that the FDA delegated the responsibility of creating safety standards for EMR to the Federal Communication Commission (FCC), which regulates the telecommunications in the United States and internationally, to set standards related to acceptable levels of radio frequency (RF) exposure.

"There are two problems [with this]. The FCC is not a health organization, and is therefore not qualified to make assessments health. Second, the FCC resorted to allowing the telecom industry and its paid industry scientists to set the current standards. Would you trust the tobacco industry to tell you about the safety of their product or would you prefer the U.S. Surgeon General to do it?" asks Barris.

Poem: Like the Titanic

On April 14, 1912 the Titanic steamship sank due to human error and lack of precautionary action. The movie features some powerful images, including that of a mother in a lower cabin tucking in her two young children, knowing they have no chance to get out. The image moved me then and came back to my mind today, resulting in a poem appropriate for this site.

Like the Titanic

May we remain as calm
as the mother tucking in
her two sleepy-eyed children
to bed in their Titanic cabin

as feet pounded and voices swelled
through the outer hall in waves
until an eerie silence
framed the off-kilter place.

And now we kiss our own
on their soft, familiar heads,
hiding our loosened tears in their hair,
shielding their ears and eyes

from what we see is coming
with our own aching eyes -
the unwitting world being veered
into a microwave sea

where the ancient hulls of our genomes
breached by the pulsing waves
despite what the blind captains say
can never be restored.

Let’s shut our cabin doors
though there will be no stampede.
Let's squeeze our families in daily embraces,
make prayers and music to soothe.

Though our DNA be doomed
through irrevocable folly
it does not mean we cannot rally
for moments sheltering peace.

1930 microwave bioeffects tests revealed many symptoms

The Microwave Debate by Nicholas H. Steneck (1984) is well worth a look if you want to understand the idiocy of today's microwave regulators.

Page 26 states that by 1930, General Electric plant in Schenectady did a human test of microwave thermal exposures in a box-like apparatus with aluminum plated sides. They were excited about potential uses  of microwave heating for creating "artificial" fevers in medical treatments.

Here is a summary of symptoms experienced:
"A few patients studied at GE complained of headaches, felt nauceous and/or experienced drops in blood pressure." However, since these symptoms were similar to the diseases that had fevers they were assumed to be acceptable.

Curious about microwave potential hazards in an uncontrolled  (mainly occupational) setting, the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery investigated effects from the new "super-high" frequency, 800MHz radio transmitters being put into operation.

The effects of these transmitters "were quitte startling in some cases."
Imagine this:
A normal incandescent light bulb held in the test subject's hand GLOWED when held about 20-feet from the RF source. THE BODY of the subject ABSORBED ENOUGH electricity (RF) "to cause the bulb's filament to illuminate."

Symptoms during this test included "unpleasant warmth, sweating of feet and legs, general body warmtn and sweating, drowsiness, headaches, pains about the ankles, wrists and elbows, weakness and vertigo."

Another nice Navy test aimed at learning "how severe these symptoms could become and whether they produced any permanent adverse effects." Six volunteers were asked to stand near a super-high frequency transmitter and to endure effects until they became unbearable. To increase effects, each volunteer held a metal rod in one hand that they grounded on a metal fence - to insure MAXIMUM APSORPTION. (Do Not Do This At Home)

When the power was switched on, symptoms were recorded in the order of appearance.
1) Growing sensation of warmth in hand holding metal rod
2) Within 3-5 minutes the heat was so intense the subjects began to shift metal rods from hand to hand.
3) Pain started to develop in their joints and tendons of hand holding the rod
4) Similar pain soon developed in the ankles.
5) General sweating followed and feeling of increasing body temp. (shown as being elevated a few degrees, along with drops in blood pressure)
6) Finally, feelings of heat were followed by "weakness, drowsiness or headache"

All symptoms disappeared when transmitter turned off. Volunteers "seemed to return to normal in all respects except one - the rate at which subsequent exposure produced effects." In other words volunteers subjected to a second and third series of tests experienced all of the symptoms FASTER and TOOK LONGER TO RECOVER from the exposure sessions.

All subjects did return to normal, "at least to the extent demonstrated by the test effects." Those little bothersome symptoms and increasing sensitivity to symptoms could easily be ignored in order to develop exciting new microwave/RF devices then - and now.

Here are a few points on the situation.
*At the time long-term low level tests were not done, assumed to be safe if below heating levels
*Just because a subject did not feel ill effects until a certain thermal level did not mean internal damage was not occuring.
*No other biological measurments were taken during or after the 1930s tests to reveal lingering damage.
*The increasing sensitivity to developing ill effects and recovering from them is classic Radiofrequency Sickness - an early stage, but nonetheless - proof.
*The 1930s test subjects were lucky in that the transmitters could be turned off - and the test was over. BUT TODAY we cannot turn off all the transmitters allowed to pierce our environment without our consent. So the experiment never ends - and our FCC is still living in the 1930s using the same assumptions that only thermal RF can cause damage, and damage is reversible.

Read The Microwave Debate by Nicholas Stenick to better understand where where microwave standards come from and why they are stuck at non-protective levels. And hey, we could try that light bulb trick next to a cell tower antenna just for the heck of it. Free electricity. Now, who could ask for anything more?

(You'll have to get it from the library unless you want to spend a bundle for the rare book at Amazon.)

FCC questions if protecting children from RF damage is "useful or counterproductive" = WRONG QUESTION

Microwave News (MWN) announced that the FCC has now "issued a package of rules and information requestst related to RF health and safety. The document is long and complex."
 
See their "short take" for the basic information.
 
MWN includes the following quote from the new FCC rules:

One of the key issues on the table is whether there is a need for precautionary policies, specifically to protect children (see ¶¶5-7 and ¶¶236-243):
[W]e ask whether any precautionary action would be either useful or counterproductive, given that there is a lack of scientific consensus about the possibility of adverse health effects at exposure levels at or below our existing limits. [¶6]
 

THE CORRECT QUESTION TO ASK IS:
"We ask whether precautionary actions should be implemented to potentially save lives despite the fact there is a lack of scientific consensus, which is divided down lines of industry-funded and independent studies. We also ask if it is ethical for regulatory bodies to ignore thousands of recent peer-reviewed studies and medical experts, both pediatric and environmental medicine practitioners, warning of unacceptable risks, especially to our most vulnerable populations, and including DNA damage - which could impact human life forever." 
 
Imagine the FCC continues to ignore at least half the science.
Say the chance was 50/50 that even as we speak
non-thermal pulsed microwaves/radiofrequencies were damaging your
family members' DNA, interrupting their heart and neurological function,
stunting fetal brains, shrinking children's cognitive abilities,
seeding cancers, and basically destroying people's quality
and quantity of life through sleep problems, eye, sperm problems,
unnecessary biological anxiety/depression/nervousness/irritability,
unnecessary medicines they wouldn't have needed,
unnecessary chronic and unusual health problems.

Say the odds of harm were 50/50 and one day next year, or five years down the road
"they" found out that they were 99% WRONG.
Oops, says the FCC.
Oops, says the industry.
Oops oops says the healthcare system
that denied any problem,
Oh, no, say consumers
who were not warned
or did not listen when they were.

Since when is technology more important than life?
Since when is it "counterproductive" to protect the vulnerable?

Smartmeter Poem: “The Devil” by Ellen Cecil

Adapted from an original Poem by Anonymous

 
 
Wish List (of people sensitive to microwave emissions)

We yearn for just a few towns with less cell towers, Wi-Fi and smart meters
where we could live without getting sick. If not towns then how about
neighborhoods with people who care about our needs. No such
places? We’d welcome a sprinkling of rural houses out of
range of wireless broadband. With no guarantee of that,
we would accept one fully shielded room in our homes
or apartments if we could afford it – but many of us
can’t. Okay, okay, we understand, you won’t
give up your gadgets and apps so we must
take what we can get: the only
microwave-safe abodes,
6-foot deep in the
grassy slope.

FCC negligence on enforcing wireless antenna limits EXPOSED: workers and public AT RISK


The wireless industry's failure to comply with FCC regulations protecting the public and workers from RF Radiation exposure is exposed in this intelligent INVESTIGATIVE REPORT by the EMR Policy Institute. They did numerous professional level measurements at antenna sites and document their correspondance and calls to FCC and wireless providers to get safety information and enforcement.
Share this press release and these shocking videos with lawmakers, the media, public safety officials, wireless workers and your dear ones. American workers and the public deserve better than this.

Smart Grid platform "empowers products" with "consumer engagement engine"

IBS Group Member Announces New Cloud-Based Platform Empowers the Smart Grid with Targeted Consumer Engagement

RAMSEY, Isle of Man, January 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

IBS Group, a leading software development and IT services provider in Central and Eastern Europe, announces that Luxoft, a member of IBS Group and a global provider of advanced application and product development services, introduced DMMessenger at the DistribuTECH 2013 in San Diego, California.

DMMessenger is the energy consumer analysis and engagement tool that processes and segments high-volume meter data. Luxoft created DMMessenger specifically for Smart Grid solution vendors who want to empower their products with an active consumer engagement engine, meter data processing, cloud-based storage, social network integration, and two-way consumer messaging.

"Smart Grids is not about making people to consume less, it's about efficiency. Smart Grids enable people to consume energy in a green and a more sustainable way," said Michael Minkevich, VP Technology Services at Luxoft. "In order to proactively engage customers, utilities want a more effective means of communication with them and need software products that include extensive customer engagement functionality.

DMMessenger, that analyzes large volumes of consumer data and identifies the target groups amongst millions of clients is just the tool that allows the software vendors to rapidly develop such solutions. By engaging these groups utilities can achieve a more efficient grid operation, especially in critical peak times, to save money for the consumer and the supplier."

OBVIOUSLY, "non-engaged" groups will pay higher prices for not “empowering vendor products” by interacting with the system. What a racket.

Deep Brain Stimulator for Alzheimer's questioned


Using Electrical Stimulation For Alzheimer’s Disease: John Hopkins study.

The ADvance Study is researching the use of a surgically implanted device that delivers mild electrical pulses to specific areas of the brain in people with Alzheimer’s. This deep brain stimulation (known as DBS) will be given to the fornix, a place in the brain that plays a central role in memory. Based on results of a small study of 6 patients with Alzheimer’s*, the ADvance study is designed to determine if DBS of the fornix (DBS-f) is safe and has potential clinical benefit for patients with mild Alzheimer’s.
 
Treating memory loss such as Alzheimer's brings with a new Deep Brain Stimulator device implant sounds like an extreme measure. The researchers are not even sure if the device is safe. So, will the Alzheimer's patients who want to particpate please raise your hands?

The investment of time, money and focus put into this potential symptom treatment brings up questions:

Question:
Why hasn't the same amount of research effort gone into PREVENTION - especially into how memory and the brain are impacted by exploding exposure to microwave/radiofrequency people now experience?

Answer:
Reducing causes would reduce suffering and costs to U.S. health care. But new DBS equipment will be a profitable endeavor as memory-related conditions continue to rise.

Question:
Why are they so very careful about stimulating the brain here, yet totally oblivious to and careless about the impact of microwave/radiofrequency radiation's impacts to brains (and bodies)?

Answer: Money and power of the medical wireless industry.

IARC lead scientist says radiofrequency should be now PROBABLE carcinogen



Studies since IARC designation of RF as class 2b potential carcinogen mean today it should be class 2a, PROBABLE carcinogen, says Dr. Anthony Miller, who worked on assessing the studies for IARC's class 2b decision in 2011.

Other scientists and epidemiologists think that the clear building evidence means RF should be now put into Group 1: a definite carcinogen.

Logic would tell us that whether it is a potential, probable or definite cancer-causing agent, non-thermal RF is not an emission that should be spread in the additive, haphazard manner that is in process - throwing precautions to the wind. But isn't that human nature when it comes to our greed and one-sided vision of how we want the world to be? Like Big Tobacco, Big Wireless continues to possibly, probably or definitely poison the population - although at least, with tobacco a person could escape its reach. Not so with wireless radiation.

new CDC study on growing ADHD blind to Cell Phone Use etiology, shown in the study!

Yahoo health news summarized the new study showing growing cases of ADHD in America's youth, but you had to really dig to find the actual study, which was done by the CDC.

The findings are troubling, but more troubling is the fact that an important causal factor seems to be overlooked, or perhaps intentionally muted.

See the whole document here.

Especially see what is found on page 9 of the study in the Discussion below. It is amazing to witness the blind spot of those who are supposed to care about protecting the public health.

(why are levels rising?)

Other factors, such as increased confidence to treat ADHD among clinicians and
increased exposure to etiologic factors (e.g., environmental contaminants) may also play a role. The magnitude of increases documented within these cross-sectional data warrant future efforts to more fully understand the factors affecting ADHD diagnosis. (these contaminants are not named)

The epidemiological profile for ADHD diagnosis and treatment continues to evolve. Based on parent-reported indicators of health care providerdiagnosed ADHD diagnosis and treatment,more than 1 in 10 school-aged children (11%) had received an ADHD diagnosis by a health care provider by 2011, representing more than 6.4 million children nationally. Nearly 1 in 5nhigh school boys and 1 in 11 high school girls had been diagnosed with ADHD. Of those with a history of ADHD, 83% had current ADHD inn2011 (8.8% nationwide), and 69% of these children and adolescents (6.1% nationwide) were taking medication for ADHD. These estimates are all significantly higher than comparable 2007 estimates...

JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF CHILD & ADOLESCENT PSYCHIATRY
VOLUME - NUMBER- -2013 www.jaacap.org   PAGE 9, Discussion

The findings in this report are subject to several limitations. First, as noted earlier, the ADHD indicators used here did not assess ADHD symptoms but, rather, relied on parent report of diagnosis by a health care provider, which may introduce recall bias. The parent reported indicators have not been clinically validated; however, a recent analysis indicated that parent-reported survey data produced similar estimates as those from insurance claims data, providing evidence of convergent validity for parent-reported ADHD diagnosis by a health care provider.33 Second, the cell phone sample inclusion could have affected the 2011 estimates; analyses of restricted-use data suggest that children living in cell phoneonly households in 2011 were more likely to have current ADHD. than children living in landline phone households (10.0% vs. 8.4%); therefore, non-coverage of cell phoneonly households in 2007 may have underestimated prevalence.
 
Hellooo? Anybody there? Note the potential cell phone exposure connection? Why not see it? Why not say it? Do we not WANT to end this horrible epidemic?

24 hours of cell phone use = 1600 chest x-rays RADIATION EFFECTS, visual proof

Packed with biological, medical and international information 6 years ago this article, "Cell phones as bad as x-rays," is still a groundbreaking article.

Other excerpts:
The U.S. government allowed wireless phones to be put on the market in the 1980s with absolutely no safety testing.
For each minute a child presses a microwave phone to his head, he may suffer radiation damage equivalent to approximately 1.1 chest X-rays.
A whopping average of 39.75 percent of cells taken from mobile phone users showed DNA damage. The blood of one 24-year-old male revealed 63 percent micronucleated cells. He had used a cell phone for 1-2 hours per day for two years, the norm for millions of kids.
The Indian study confirms that the human body, overwhelmed with the continual and brutal assault of wireless radiation, is unable to perform normal cellular repair. Other studies confirm that microwave radiation, which causes a critical need for continual cellular repair, simultaneously shuts down cellular repair mechanisms.(24) The body’s exhausted immune and repair systems eventually become too decimated to do much more than survive poorly.
So the latest studies reveal what no one wants to hear: Kids who endlessly cell-phone socialize, even sleep with perpetually transmitting wireless devices (to keep intermittent conversations on line), are doing immense damage to their tissues, especially the brain and setting up a storm of problems which they will reap in later life. The profiteers or corporate America don’t care. They want their money NOW; to Hell with the future of these kids.

Immune System Dysfunction.

A child’s body, kept in chronic allergic stress by wireless phone radiation, may end up with an exhausted immune system which no longer responds effectively. European experts prognosticate that many people heavily exposed to wireless radiation may eventually suffer the manifestations of electro-hypersensitivity (EHS).(34) EHS is a devastating allergic, auto-immune-like condition in which over-irradiated persons become severely sensitive to both chemical and electromagnetic pollution. Similar to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, EHS symptoms can be so disabling that victims are often forced to isolate themselves from even the smallest electromagnetic fields.

And what about environmental microwave transmitters?

Millions of American kids, struggling with physical disabilities and mental manias, are heavily irradiated not only with Wi-toys, but also by ubiquitous environmental transmitters needed to feed those toys. Nearly 200,000 cell tower and roof top transmitters continuously saturate American cities, playgrounds and passing vehicles with DNA-damaging waves equivalent to ionizing radiation. Living in transmitter-zapped neighborhoods where microwaves pass easily into homes, millions of infants and small kids have no respite from daily, deadly radiation assault....

Wi-Fi compared toThalidomide by microwave weapons expert: harms school children

British retired military microwave expert Barrie Trower warns about what we are doing to our school children with unprecedented microwave radiation in our schools. His experience with microwave weapons means he OUGHT TO KNOW the biological risks, which he continues to back up with studies.

His report states the following:

The Main Risks to Children

These biological processes described as being ‘influenced’ by low-level microwave irradiation may not just damage foetal growth; relying on the same biological processes are:

Blood Brain Barrier – requires 18 months to form and protects the brain from toxins. It is known to be effected.

Myelin Sheath – requires 22 years to build its 122 layers. It is responsible for all thinking, organ and muscle processes.

Brain – requires 20 years to develop (I can assure you, cell phones do not help in its development).

Immune System – requires 18 years to develop. Bone marrow and Bone Density are known to be affected by low-level microwaves as are the immune systems’ white blood cells.

Bones – requires 28 years to develop – as mentioned the moisture content of children makes both the ‘soft bones’ and marrow particularly attractive to microwave irradiation. Bone marrow produces blood cells.

Clearly, our decision makers are overlooking a child illness pandemic hitherto unknown in our 40,000 generations of civilization; which can involve over a half of the World’s exposed mothers / children.
The question remains if anyone will listen in time, or if the world needs to first witness the devastating impact on children and their progeny - with human dna likely damaged irreparably forever - to end the wireless proliferation frenzy, especially Wi-Fi in schools and smart gadget exposures.

Pennsylvania woman's water shut off for refusing smart meter: epileptic children, ailing husband

Some Springdale residents resisting 'smart' water meters
By Braden Ashe Published: Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013, 12:11 a.m. Updated: Wednesday, September 4, 2013

Since the borough shut off her water Friday, Cindee Zlacki of Springdale has been using her neighbor's outdoor hose to fill her ailing husband's nebulizer. It's but one of the many hardships she's faced since refusing to comply with the borough's mandated smart meter system by its Aug. 30 deadline...

“I'm not putting anything in my home that will harm my kids,” she said. “This is a democracy and you're supposed to have choices. I don't understand how the borough thinks they can force me into this position...”

Dear Ms. Zlacki,
This is not a democracy when collectivist monopolies control necessary utility services, and refuse to provide flexible, individual customer service - because they don't HAVE to.

The utility rulers are untouchable and harsh in the same way that communist leaders are: Customers could die from lack of water, but they'll turn it off anyhow. Customers could also become ill from smart meter radiation, which has been shown to be biologically risky - especially for people with health issues or vulnerabilities. 

Living in the growing (smart grid-enabled)

Utility-ruled Utopia means:

System comes before People.

Corporate Collectivism Leads.
Individuals are Expendable.

Why? Greed. Power. Ideology. Corruption. Naivety.

Declassified Intelligence Document: "Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Radiation (Radiowaves and Microwaves) Eurasian Communist Countries"

The following document shows that much science was done and many biological impacts of RF and MW were found very early worldwide.

The point should not be that these are old studies, but that these types of findings continued for decades afterwards, and continue today - even as the worldwide wireless radiation experiment on all living things continues at breakneck speed.

SAVE LIVES: submit comments to FCC to lower Radiofrequency Radiation exposure limits - by September 3


"The FCC is considering changes to its exposure limits and policies for RF radiation. This site is designed to help you learn more about the issues and submit meaningful comments to the FCC."

We can save people from harm and grief by providing meaningful input to the FCC before it is too late. Future generations will be saved from developmental and degenerative and DNA damage if we can get the message through now. Even if the FCC chooses to ignore it, the record will be there to build upon as more people fall victim to non-thermal chronic RF/MW impacts on their health and lives. When the people wake up there will be no stopping them. If the people wake up in time. If they live long enough to wake up. Sad, but true.

Submit comments today, and SAVE LIVES.

How chronic LOW POWER radiofrequency and microwaves exposures disturb cell membranes, calcium channels

An expert's talk and a new paper both demonstrate how EMF exposures can produce biological effects.

Why is LOW POWER chronic wireless exposure a much bigger danger to health?
Because chronic exposure to low power microwaves disturb the charge on our cellular membranes.
They open up our cells and we get something called cell leakage.
 
View this expert explanation of how humans are slowly aging and killing themselves and each other by uncritically embracing wireless technology... 
 


SEE ALSO this informative paper that reviews 24 different studies in which EMF exposures produce biological effects that can be blocked by using calcium channel blockers, drugs that block the action of voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs). ..

Martin Pall writes:

One of the great puzzles about the action of electromagnetic fields is how can they influence the biology of our bodies?  The reason that this is such a great puzzle is that these fields are comprised of low energy photons, with energies too low to influence the chemistry of our bodies.  So how can they possibly influence our biology?  Many have argued that the only thing that they can possibly do is to heat things, and yet it is very clear that levels of exposure that produce only the slightest heating have been repeatedly shown to produce substantial biological effects.  Now this puzzle has been solved in a paper with the title of this email, published on line in the Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, freely available on the publisher's web site.

Picture Life in Baraboo, WI, USA: No More Water Service (if you refuse a smart meter)

 Life in Baraboo, Wisconsin, USA
means collecting water from a small pool to flush your toilet
because the city utility disconnected your water.
 
You just want to opt out of their radiofrequency transmitting water meter
for health, security, privacy reasons.
But they would rather disconnect you than allow it.
 
 


Life in Baraboo, Wisconsin, USA
also means an 81-year-old great-grandma
must go without water
for having her own opinion
about the risks of smart water meters.
The city utility also disconnected her water this week.

A Radiant Day video: what the West can learn from the East about radiofrequency radiation

De-Kun Li: indomitable scientist finds EMF impacts: obesity, asthma, sperm damage

Called the "last man standing" among U.S. environmental epidemiologists working on electromagnetic frequencies research, Dr. De-Kun Li continues to break ground in science exploring biological impacts of RF and magnetic radiation exposures. Unlike other scientists who had studied these impacts, he studies the effects in real time, where exposures are measured as they occur. This is called a prospective study, while in retrospective studies "epidemiologists attempt to estimate exposures and conditions that occurred in the past, sometimes many years later."

One year ago Li found that prenatal EMF exposure can cause obesity in children. His earlier studies linked EMF exposure to asthma and decline in sperm quality. In December 2012 the scientist filed testimony before the Maine Public Utility Commission regarding the issues of smart meter safety. He was asked if science supports the conclusion that wireless smart meters are safe. His expert response was, "No."

The previous year (2011) Dr. Li was one of the experts asked to submit input to the California Council on Science and Technology (CCST) for their health study on smart meters. Li's identifying and contact information must have been removed from his letter at the CCST site because it appears in full at another site.   Furthermore, you must have the URL to locate his letter at CCST because their search is "temporarily down." Plus on the "publications" page you can only find the CCST summary with their own bias on it. The page that includes Li and other experts' input is here, and took some digging to find.

So, what was so threatening about Dr. Li's input about smart meter safety to have to try to suppress it? The scientist simply describes how current FCC's RF exposure standards do not protect the public from biological effects and damage. Consequently, chronic smart meter exposures put people at risk.

Digital dementia in the young: our sacrifice to the wireless god


Is the human race willing to sacrifice its young to the wireless god?
A new article describes a "digital dementia" in young people in Korea. Cell phone/gadget companies have created devices to take over normal daily brain functions and capabilities. Addiction to computer internet/games already existed prior to portable devices. The utter lack of vision or foresight as to the ways this technology was bound to affect people is noteworthy. The biological and social damage will continue in the wake of serving the wireless god.

Medical industry CAN'T add 2+2 about EMR biological effects, or WON'T


Dariusz Leszczynski, PhD, asks in his recent blog how doctors can so enthusiastically pursue new wireless medical treatments using focused (non-thermal) non-ionizing radiation to kill cancer and for other good purposes, while they continue to deny any biological effects from the same kind of radiation when used by telecom and energy industries.

Telecom and energy industries expose the entire populations to haphazard mixtures of radiofrequency radiation unlike medical RF, which is controlled and focused to treat biological conditions and diseases. So, either these doctors cannot add 2+2 about biological impacts, or they do not want to.

Sadly, doctors are only human with the same wireless dependency and fascination as other people. They run with the culture's lemming stampede the way doctors did in the age of Big Tobacco. They would rather point their fun RF machines at a few cancer cells than save countless lives in the bigger picture.

Cyber attacks on medical devices a risk with wireless hospitals and devices...SOLUTION

US warns of cyber attacks on medical devices 
 
AFP - US authorities on Thursday warned makers of medical devices and hospital networks to step up efforts to guard against potential cyber attacks.

The US Food and Drug Administration said implanted devices, which could include pacemakers or defibrillators, could be connected to networks that are vulnerable to hackers.

An FDA warning notice was sent to medical device manufacturers, hospitals, medical device user facilities, health care technical staff and biomedical engineers.

It said the agency has recently "become aware of cybersecurity vulnerabilities and incidents that could directly impact medical devices or hospital network operations."

 
The truth is that wireless technology and systems ENABLE hackers. A simple solution to hacking would be to revert to wired systems, and break up networks. For example, medical facilities could have many ports to attach non-wireless personal gadgets and upload/download using fiber optic, speed-of-light, systems. Wired/fiber systems could still be hacked, but not remotely. And not if the wiring has firewalls and does not connect automatically to a central location.

Non-wireless mechanical medical devices are not easily hacked the ways wireless ones are. RF radiation also increases the risk of unintended electromagnetic interference with implants.

Cyber attacks of wireless medicine are only one problem. RF medical devices and systems also expose the most vulnerable people - patients - to increased ambient radiofrequency radiation. RF has repeatedly been shown to interfere with healing and cell membrane functions. It creates biological oxidative stress that functions like other kinds of stress in creating free radical damage. Denial of RF biological risks is like the defense of tobacco smoking as harmless and even healthy a couple decades ago.

Yale study shows fetal impacts of cell phones, hyper-active young with poor memories, different behavior than control




If you care about fetal health sign a new petition to fire the FCC from its responsibility for setting safe radiofrequency radiation limits. FCC has a clear conflict of interest: it works to promote technology first and foremost. Public health is an after-thought.

Sign the petition NOW to release the rogue FCC from the crucial RF exposure standards function, and enlist the EPA instead!

And BTW, think what WiFi pulses and RF transmitting utility "smart" meter bursts are doing to fetuses 24/7. It does not bode well.

PETITION: Fire FCC, enlist EPA to address radiofrequency biological safety limits

FCC staff have a conflict of interest (see below) in deciding what radiofrequency and microwave radiation exposure limits to adopt. They cannot help it: they work for industry. And they do a great job of it. They simply are NOT a public health agency and therefore are UNABLE to prioritize public safety and health.

The FCC does not even monitor high microwave heating limits on cellular antennas, according to an established independent organization's recent investigative report. Does this inspire confidence in the FCC's concern for protecting public health?

Let's fire the FCC from its RF standards responsibilities, which it cannot handle properly. Please SIGN THIS PETITION to get the ball rolling. Let's get congress to enlist the EPA and create meaningful, biological exposure limits - it is our best hope at this point.

*************************************************************************

W.E.E.P. article excerpt

Barris considers it peculiar that the FDA delegated the responsibility of creating safety standards for EMR to the Federal Communication Commission (FCC), which regulates the telecommunications in the United States and internationally, to set standards related to acceptable levels of radio frequency (RF) exposure.

"There are two problems [with this]. The FCC is not a health organization, and is therefore not qualified to make assessments health. Second, the FCC resorted to allowing the telecom industry and its paid industry scientists to set the current standards. Would you trust the tobacco industry to tell you about the safety of their product or would you prefer the U.S. Surgeon General to do it?" asks Barris.

Poem: Like the Titanic

On April 14, 1912 the Titanic steamship sank due to human error and lack of precautionary action. The movie features some powerful images, including that of a mother in a lower cabin tucking in her two young children, knowing they have no chance to get out. The image moved me then and came back to my mind today, resulting in a poem appropriate for this site.

Like the Titanic

May we remain as calm
as the mother tucking in
her two sleepy-eyed children
to bed in their Titanic cabin

as feet pounded and voices swelled
through the outer hall in waves
until an eerie silence
framed the off-kilter place.

And now we kiss our own
on their soft, familiar heads,
hiding our loosened tears in their hair,
shielding their ears and eyes

from what we see is coming
with our own aching eyes -
the unwitting world being veered
into a microwave sea

where the ancient hulls of our genomes
breached by the pulsing waves
despite what the blind captains say
can never be restored.

Let’s shut our cabin doors
though there will be no stampede.
Let's squeeze our families in daily embraces,
make prayers and music to soothe.

Though our DNA be doomed
through irrevocable folly
it does not mean we cannot rally
for moments sheltering peace.

1930 microwave bioeffects tests revealed many symptoms

The Microwave Debate by Nicholas H. Steneck (1984) is well worth a look if you want to understand the idiocy of today's microwave regulators.

Page 26 states that by 1930, General Electric plant in Schenectady did a human test of microwave thermal exposures in a box-like apparatus with aluminum plated sides. They were excited about potential uses  of microwave heating for creating "artificial" fevers in medical treatments.

Here is a summary of symptoms experienced:
"A few patients studied at GE complained of headaches, felt nauceous and/or experienced drops in blood pressure." However, since these symptoms were similar to the diseases that had fevers they were assumed to be acceptable.

Curious about microwave potential hazards in an uncontrolled  (mainly occupational) setting, the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery investigated effects from the new "super-high" frequency, 800MHz radio transmitters being put into operation.

The effects of these transmitters "were quitte startling in some cases."
Imagine this:
A normal incandescent light bulb held in the test subject's hand GLOWED when held about 20-feet from the RF source. THE BODY of the subject ABSORBED ENOUGH electricity (RF) "to cause the bulb's filament to illuminate."

Symptoms during this test included "unpleasant warmth, sweating of feet and legs, general body warmtn and sweating, drowsiness, headaches, pains about the ankles, wrists and elbows, weakness and vertigo."

Another nice Navy test aimed at learning "how severe these symptoms could become and whether they produced any permanent adverse effects." Six volunteers were asked to stand near a super-high frequency transmitter and to endure effects until they became unbearable. To increase effects, each volunteer held a metal rod in one hand that they grounded on a metal fence - to insure MAXIMUM APSORPTION. (Do Not Do This At Home)

When the power was switched on, symptoms were recorded in the order of appearance.
1) Growing sensation of warmth in hand holding metal rod
2) Within 3-5 minutes the heat was so intense the subjects began to shift metal rods from hand to hand.
3) Pain started to develop in their joints and tendons of hand holding the rod
4) Similar pain soon developed in the ankles.
5) General sweating followed and feeling of increasing body temp. (shown as being elevated a few degrees, along with drops in blood pressure)
6) Finally, feelings of heat were followed by "weakness, drowsiness or headache"

All symptoms disappeared when transmitter turned off. Volunteers "seemed to return to normal in all respects except one - the rate at which subsequent exposure produced effects." In other words volunteers subjected to a second and third series of tests experienced all of the symptoms FASTER and TOOK LONGER TO RECOVER from the exposure sessions.

All subjects did return to normal, "at least to the extent demonstrated by the test effects." Those little bothersome symptoms and increasing sensitivity to symptoms could easily be ignored in order to develop exciting new microwave/RF devices then - and now.

Here are a few points on the situation.
*At the time long-term low level tests were not done, assumed to be safe if below heating levels
*Just because a subject did not feel ill effects until a certain thermal level did not mean internal damage was not occuring.
*No other biological measurments were taken during or after the 1930s tests to reveal lingering damage.
*The increasing sensitivity to developing ill effects and recovering from them is classic Radiofrequency Sickness - an early stage, but nonetheless - proof.
*The 1930s test subjects were lucky in that the transmitters could be turned off - and the test was over. BUT TODAY we cannot turn off all the transmitters allowed to pierce our environment without our consent. So the experiment never ends - and our FCC is still living in the 1930s using the same assumptions that only thermal RF can cause damage, and damage is reversible.

Read The Microwave Debate by Nicholas Stenick to better understand where where microwave standards come from and why they are stuck at non-protective levels. And hey, we could try that light bulb trick next to a cell tower antenna just for the heck of it. Free electricity. Now, who could ask for anything more?

Smart meter "pain and suffering" EQUAL OPPORTUNITY: Lawson Family, no power in LA

Smart meter pain and suffering is equal opportunity for all.

You big, powerful smart grid planners - look what your policies are doing to people. The Lawson Family begged Los Angeles Water and Power to remove smart meter from property. Smart meters causing children to be (unnaturally) ill. Then they had NO power for weeks, including through Easter.

(Thanks, Stop Smart Meters for first posting this!)

FCC questions if protecting children from RF damage is "useful or counterproductive" = WRONG QUESTION

Microwave News (MWN) announced that the FCC has now "issued a package of rules and information requestst related to RF health and safety. The document is long and complex."
 
See their "short take" for the basic information.
 
MWN includes the following quote from the new FCC rules:

One of the key issues on the table is whether there is a need for precautionary policies, specifically to protect children (see ¶¶5-7 and ¶¶236-243):
[W]e ask whether any precautionary action would be either useful or counterproductive, given that there is a lack of scientific consensus about the possibility of adverse health effects at exposure levels at or below our existing limits. [¶6]
 

THE CORRECT QUESTION TO ASK IS:
"We ask whether precautionary actions should be implemented to potentially save lives despite the fact there is a lack of scientific consensus, which is divided down lines of industry-funded and independent studies. We also ask if it is ethical for regulatory bodies to ignore thousands of recent peer-reviewed studies and medical experts, both pediatric and environmental medicine practitioners, warning of unacceptable risks, especially to our most vulnerable populations, and including DNA damage - which could impact human life forever." 
 
Imagine the FCC continues to ignore at least half the science.
Say the chance was 50/50 that even as we speak
non-thermal pulsed microwaves/radiofrequencies were damaging your
family members' DNA, interrupting their heart and neurological function,
stunting fetal brains, shrinking children's cognitive abilities,
seeding cancers, and basically destroying people's quality
and quantity of life through sleep problems, eye, sperm problems,
unnecessary biological anxiety/depression/nervousness/irritability,
unnecessary medicines they wouldn't have needed,
unnecessary chronic and unusual health problems.

Say the odds of harm were 50/50 and one day next year, or five years down the road
"they" found out that they were 99% WRONG.
Oops, says the FCC.
Oops, says the industry.
Oops oops says the healthcare system
that denied any problem,
Oh, no, say consumers
who were not warned
or did not listen when they were.

Since when is technology more important than life?
Since when is it "counterproductive" to protect the vulnerable?

Poetry against smart meters

Poets have begun pouring out expressions against forced smart meters. If you know of any others, please let us know so we can post them. (all copyrights retained by the authors.)





From Sinead of the Loch at AllPoetry.com

From 2013 Wisconson Poets' Calendar, and on poetry wall, 100 Thousand Poets for Change 


Dear Someone,
Please pull the
cell towers
down in my
neighborhood
so I can
concentrate
enough to
do homework

Please turn off
the Wi-Fi
at my school
so I don’t
have to take
medicine
for my heart

And please change
back our smart
meters to
safer ones
so mom can
stop sleeping
in her car

Ode to the Toxic Smart Meter



Smartmeter Poem: “The Devil” by Ellen Cecil

Adapted from an original Poem by Anonymous

 
 
Wish List (of people sensitive to microwave emissions)

We yearn for just a few towns with less cell towers, Wi-Fi and smart meters
where we could live without getting sick. If not towns then how about
neighborhoods with people who care about our needs. No such
places? We’d welcome a sprinkling of rural houses out of
range of wireless broadband. With no guarantee of that,
we would accept one fully shielded room in our homes
or apartments if we could afford it – but many of us
can’t. Okay, okay, we understand, you won’t
give up your gadgets and apps so we must
take what we can get: the only
microwave-safe abodes,
6-foot deep in the
grassy slope.

FCC negligence on enforcing wireless antenna limits EXPOSED: workers and public AT RISK


The wireless industry's failure to comply with FCC regulations protecting the public and workers from RF Radiation exposure is exposed in this intelligent INVESTIGATIVE REPORT by the EMR Policy Institute. They did numerous professional level measurements at antenna sites and document their correspondance and calls to FCC and wireless providers to get safety information and enforcement.
Share this press release and these shocking videos with lawmakers, the media, public safety officials, wireless workers and your dear ones. American workers and the public deserve better than this.

Smart Grid platform "empowers products" with "consumer engagement engine"

IBS Group Member Announces New Cloud-Based Platform Empowers the Smart Grid with Targeted Consumer Engagement

RAMSEY, Isle of Man, January 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

IBS Group, a leading software development and IT services provider in Central and Eastern Europe, announces that Luxoft, a member of IBS Group and a global provider of advanced application and product development services, introduced DMMessenger at the DistribuTECH 2013 in San Diego, California.

DMMessenger is the energy consumer analysis and engagement tool that processes and segments high-volume meter data. Luxoft created DMMessenger specifically for Smart Grid solution vendors who want to empower their products with an active consumer engagement engine, meter data processing, cloud-based storage, social network integration, and two-way consumer messaging.

"Smart Grids is not about making people to consume less, it's about efficiency. Smart Grids enable people to consume energy in a green and a more sustainable way," said Michael Minkevich, VP Technology Services at Luxoft. "In order to proactively engage customers, utilities want a more effective means of communication with them and need software products that include extensive customer engagement functionality.

DMMessenger, that analyzes large volumes of consumer data and identifies the target groups amongst millions of clients is just the tool that allows the software vendors to rapidly develop such solutions. By engaging these groups utilities can achieve a more efficient grid operation, especially in critical peak times, to save money for the consumer and the supplier."

OBVIOUSLY, "non-engaged" groups will pay higher prices for not “empowering vendor products” by interacting with the system. What a racket.

Deep Brain Stimulator for Alzheimer's questioned


Using Electrical Stimulation For Alzheimer’s Disease: John Hopkins study.

The ADvance Study is researching the use of a surgically implanted device that delivers mild electrical pulses to specific areas of the brain in people with Alzheimer’s. This deep brain stimulation (known as DBS) will be given to the fornix, a place in the brain that plays a central role in memory. Based on results of a small study of 6 patients with Alzheimer’s*, the ADvance study is designed to determine if DBS of the fornix (DBS-f) is safe and has potential clinical benefit for patients with mild Alzheimer’s.
 
Treating memory loss such as Alzheimer's brings with a new Deep Brain Stimulator device implant sounds like an extreme measure. The researchers are not even sure if the device is safe. So, will the Alzheimer's patients who want to particpate please raise your hands?

The investment of time, money and focus put into this potential symptom treatment brings up questions:

Question:
Why hasn't the same amount of research effort gone into PREVENTION - especially into how memory and the brain are impacted by exploding exposure to microwave/radiofrequency people now experience?

Answer:
Reducing causes would reduce suffering and costs to U.S. health care. But new DBS equipment will be a profitable endeavor as memory-related conditions continue to rise.

Question:
Why are they so very careful about stimulating the brain here, yet totally oblivious to and careless about the impact of microwave/radiofrequency radiation's impacts to brains (and bodies)?

Answer: Money and power of the medical wireless industry.
