New film on wireless radiation

RT America released the film Wi-Fi Refugees today and it is being viewed by millions all over the world on their live stream. It is a 52-minute documentary on what wireless radiation is, what it does to our bodies and our planet, and what life is like for the increasing number of citizens becoming ill from it. Several Massachusetts residents are interviewed in the film:

  • The clown, Jonathan Mirin, and his wife, Godlieve Richard who portrays the physician in their play Innocenzo, are from Shelburne, MA.
  • Ida Paredo is from Hopkinton and she shares what happened to her health after seven “smart” meters were installed on her condo wall.
  • Patricia Burke is from Millis and we see her helping Pamela Steinberg from Worcester measure the EMFs in her home, and learn how Pam has to protect herself from wireless signals coming from outside her home.
  • Patricia also joins me at Ashland High School where we measure the radiation from wi-fi systems which students and staff are exposed to daily in schools throughout the Commonwealth. We also discuss how other countries protect their citizens but in America the FCC is pushing more wireless into our society with 5G, even though the current U.S. National Toxicology Program study shows it causes DNA damage, brain and heart tumors.

I have cc:d each of these courageous MA residents if you would like to reach out to them directly with questions or comments.

 

I hope you will watch Wi-Fi Refugees with your loved ones so we can all learn together and do what we can to implement technology best practices in our homes, our towns and our society at large.

 

Technology is here to stay, so the message is not “no technology” but rather “safe technology”. This can be achieved through hard-wired Ethernet/fiber optic connections, by keeping mobile devices primarily in airplane mode, moving wireless infrastructure away from homes/schools/medical facilities, and encouraging industry to bring biologically safe mobile technology to market before we install any new infrastructure.

 

Massachusetts is to be commended for leading the nation with seven bills to begin examining the health impact of wireless radiation. Hopefully we can be the catalyst to help our nation turn the tide on this invisible ubiquitous toxin. Please include this submission as testimony for:

  1. S.1268 Resolve creating a special commission to examine the health impacts of electromagnetic fields
  2. S.1864 An Act relative to utilities, smart meters, and ratepayers’ rights
  3. S.107 An Act relative to disclosure of radiofrequency notifications
  4. S.108 An Act relative to the safe use of handheld devices by children
  5. H.2030 An Act relative to best management practices for wireless in schools and public institutions of higher education
  6. S.2079 An Act reducing non-ionizing radiation exposure in schools
  7. S.2080 An Act increasing medical awareness and insurance coverage of non-ionizing radiation injury and reliance upon credible independent medical research

Dave’s Story

I was apprised of your site on the internet and this contact address in your goal to maybe create safe havens for EMF sensitive people. I sincerely hope this can come to pass, but at my age it will most likely be too late for me personally, but at least others to come after me that are younger may not have to go through as much as what I have had to.

I think a big part of my EMF sensitivity is from 35 years of working around very intense electromagnetic fields at the John F. Kennedy Space Center in ground communications here in Florida. Most especially after about 1980 when a lot of computers were installed everywhere out there. I have found that digital electronics are far worse for making people EMF sensitive than are the old analog fields. Presently I cannot go on long trips because I cannot stay in motels because of chemicals used to clean the rooms and chemicals used in washing blankets and sheets such as scented detergents and fabric softeners, etc. Also in most  motels you get rooms with televisions, wi-fi, and even small electrical substations right on the other side of bedroom walls, along with some walls fronting on drink machines and icemakers. All of these put out strong EM Fields. I had a camper van that I used for a couple of trips, but it is now ruined because the area where I live here in Florida is full of mold, and now even though my van doesn’t leak, it’s now full of mold and makes me sick to sleep in it.

The other problem with travel is that after about a hundred miles or so of driving under high tension power lines either across the highway at intervals of parallel to it, my EMF sensitivity gets far worse with severe sharp pains in my head when next to or driving under these lines. The more exposure there is, the worse it gets, so that I eventually have to get off the highway and stay some where to recuperate. Then when I get back on the highway it starts all over again. So as a consequence I am confined mostly to this area where I live and cannot travel any more than about 75 miles from home. To make matters even worse, eating out in restaurants with allergies to all foods and on a strict rotation diet becomes a near impossibility when traveling unless I eat only pre-packaged junk from convenience stores that I know the exact ingredients of. (Believe it or not that is safer than restaurants in most cases, but of course maybe not as nutritious.

The Bioinitiative Report

In 2007, this report had been written by 14 (fourteen) scientists, public health and public policy experts to document the scientific evidence on electromagnetic fields. Another dozen outside reviewers had looked at and refined the Report. The most recent report was in 2012 (see below).

The purpose of this report was to assess scientific evidence on health impacts from electromagnetic radiation below current public exposure limits and evaluate what changes in these limits are warranted now to reduce possible public health risks in the future. Not everything is known yet about this subject; but what is clear is that the existing public safety standards limiting these radiation levels in nearly every country of the world look to be thousands of times too lenient.Changes are needed. New approaches are needed to educate decision-makers and the public about sources of exposure and to find alternatives that do not pose the same level of possible health risks, while there is still time to make changes.

Their findings back then included:

  • The effects of long-term exposure to wireless technologies including emissions from cell phones and other personal devices, and from whole-body exposure to RF transmissions from cell towers and antennas is simply not known yet with certainty. However, the body of evidence at hand suggests that bioeffects and health impacts can and do occur at exquisitely low exposure levels: levels that can be thousands of times below public safety limits.
The report goes on to implicate wi-fi radiation in brain tumors, childhood leukemia, and possibly other cancers and neurological diseases.  Children were noted to be particularly vulnerable.
  • These effects can reasonably be presumed to result in adverse health effects and disease with chronic and uncontrolled exposures, and children may be particularly vulnerable. The young are also largely unable to remove themselves from such environments. Second-hand radiation, like second-hand smoke is an issue of public health concern based on the evidence at hand.

 Bioinitiative Report 2012 http://www.bioinitiative.org/table-of-contents/

Summary of the results:
  • Bioeffects are clearly established and occur at very low levels of exposure to electromagnetic fields and radiofrequency radiation. Bioeffects can occur in the first few minutes at levels associated with cell and cordless phone use. Bioeffects can also occur from just minutes of exposure to mobile phone masts (cell towers), WI-FI, and wireless utility ‘smart’ meters that produce whole-body exposure. Chronic base station level exposures can result in illness.
  • Many of these bioeffects can reasonably be presumed to result in adverse health effects if the exposures are prolonged or chronic. This is because they interfere with normal body processes (disrupt homeostasis), prevent the body from healing damaged DNA, produce immune system imbalances, metabolic disruption and lower resilience to disease across multiple pathways. Essential body processes can eventually be disabled by incessant external stresses (from system-wide electrophysiological interference) and lead to pervasive impairment of metabolic and reproductive functions.
  •  Many disrupted physiological processes and impaired behaviors in people with ASDs closely resemble those related to biological and health effects of EMF/RFR exposure. Biomarkers and indicators of disease and their clinical symptoms have striking similarities.
