Electric “smart” meters were installed in Cindy deBac’s Scottsdale, Arizona, neighborhood in 2012. She recalls the day a new meter was mounted on her home as a sort of digital Pearl Harbor attack. “I’ve never been so sick in my life,” she says. “Nausea, a crushing migraine headache, and painful heart palpitations laid me low right away.” Healthy and exuberant before the installation, deBac became unable to sleep normally. She soon became exhausted and tearfully anxious as she struggled with rashes and a chronically racing heart. For respite she spent nights away in her car. One of her dogs died
Most parents would be concerned if their children had significant exposure to lead, chloroform, gasoline fumes, or the pesticide DDT. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IRIC), part of the United Nations’ World Health Organization (WHO), classifies these and more than 250 other agents as Class 2B Carcinogens – possibly carcinogenic to humans. Another entry on that same list is radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF/EMF). The main sources of RF/EMF are radios, televisions, microwave ovens, cell phones, and Wi-Fi devices. http://www.forbes.com/sites/robertszczerba/2015/01/13/study-suggests-wi-fi-exposure-more-dangerous-to-kids-than-previously-thought/#comment_reply A few days after the article was published, significant changes were made.

UK Organizations associated with the International EMF Alliance Two new papers posted on the Wifi in Schools site. http://wifiinschools.org.uk 1. We would like the IARC classification of radio frequency electromagnetic fields as a Group 2B possibly carcinogenic to humans to be mentioned in all information about wireless devices passed on to schools, organizations and government departments, as well as in published or communicated information about each technology, e.g. Wi-Fi and smart meters. Including the 2B classification in information about wireless devices allows people to make informed choices. Organisations have legal responsibilities to provide safe environments and to not harm children,
Powerful recent presentation by Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe on Electromagnetic Radiation, Health and Children 2014. Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe is the founder of PHIRE (Physicians’ Health Initiative for Radiation and Environment), Trustee Radiation Research Trust (RRT), Medical Advisor ES-UK and Board Member CPTF.
On 31st May 2011, IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) the specialized cancer agency of the World Health Organization classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B). During the course of this symposium Dr. Anthony Miller argues the classification should be 2A, probable carcinogenic to humans. Dr. Miller also reviews the recent studies that link wireless radiation to breast and brain cancer. Dr. Davis presents the latest research showing the impact on sperm fertility as well as the connection with wireless radiation exposure and impaired childhood development. Dr. Hugh Taylor reviews his research showing the offspring
City brochures will highlight manufacturers’ fine print warnings of recommended separation between body and phone and encourage simple safety steps to reduce radiation exposure Teton Village, WY — (ReleaseWire) — 11/26/2014 – The Greenbelt Maryland City Council voted unanimously on November 24, 2014 to alert citizens about the fine print warnings and possible health risks of cell phones and wireless devices and to send the FCC Chairman a letter encouraging national action on this issue. The Greenbelt Council recommended that the City make informational brochures available that 1. Highlight the fine print warnings of the cell phone manufacturer’s recommended separation between
1. Microwave electromagnetic fields act by activating voltage-gated calcium channels: why the current international safety standards do not predict biological hazard Martin L. Pall Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences Washington State University, 638 NE 41st Ave., Portland, OR 97232 USA Abstract. Microwave and other low frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs) have been shown to act by activating voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) with most biological effects being due to elevated intracellular calcium, consequent nitric oxide (NO) elevation and either peroxynitrite or NO signaling. This, the role of excessive intracellular calcium in microwave effects and some 20,000 papers on microwave
Dr Anthony Miller from the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health presents to Toronto Council that RF exposure should be classified as a 2A (probable carcinogen), not a 2B (possible carcinogen)
