Sheryl Ubelacker, The Globe and Mail (Toronto), May 11, 2015 Wireless devices such as smartphones and tablets have certainly made staying in touch and plugging into the digital world easier and more convenient. But the increasingly ubiquitous nature of the technology is also raising concerns about possible adverse health effects from exposure to the electromagnetic radio-frequency waves that these devices emit. Worries about exposure to EM-RF fields were recently raised before the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health, which heard three days of submissions from international medical experts, advocacy groups and industry players. The all-party committee will now prepare a report on [&hellip

Technology makes life easier for most – but not so much for radio astronomers. Belinda Smith explains Excerpt “Sometimes, though, goodwill doesn’t cut it. Astronomers at the 45-metre telescope at the Nobeyama radio observatory in Nagano, Japan, have tried to detect waves emitted by vibrating complex organic molecules – which may be related to the formation of life. Unfortunately, the radio frequency those molecules emit exactly matches the frequency used by car-mounted anti-collision radar systems. “Anti-collision radar is quite powerful by radio astronomy standards and may even damage our equipment,” Lockman says. “It’s much stronger than the incidental radiation that leaks [&hellip

By Sandi Maurer, Director, EMF Safety Network April 13, 2015 http://emfsafetynetwork.org/overview-of-pgecpuc-emails-on-smart-meters/  PG&E deployed over nine million utility “smart meters” on homes and businesses in California. The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) supported the multibillion dollar deployment despite lawsuits and complaints about overcharges, privacy and security risks, fires and explosions, and health problems from the pulsed electromagnetic radiation (RF) smart meters emit. The CPUC is responsible for regulating the utilities to ensure safe and reliable utility service. Instead, they partnered with PG&E and marketing companies on a smart meter propaganda campaign. CPUC President Michael Peevey intentionally delayed the legal process for years so [&hellip

On the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, the character Chuck McGill, a lawyer played by Michael McKean, has a rather memorable condition. He frequently wraps himself in a space blanket to protect his body from cell phones or wireless internet, claiming the electromagnetic fields emitted by these devices sicken him. He has — or thinks he has — a case of what’s known as electromagnetic hypersensitivity, or EHS. This is not a condition most doctors recognize. The Guardian was quick to debunk the supposed sciencebehind EHS, claiming that the condition is overhyped by the media, and that while the symptoms sufferers report may indeed [&hellip

http://freedomoutpost.com/2012/11/light-bulbs-that-kill/ The politician – Nick Rahall (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Rahall) -” introduced the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, which banned incandescent light bulbs. Despite introducing the legislation, Rahall voted against the bill on final passage. As result of the legislation, as of January 1, 2014, incandescent light bulbs between 40 watts and 150 watts are illegal to manufacture or import.”   Nich Rahall is now retired having served 19 terms in the House of Representatives  on an annual pension of $139,000.  &nbsp

Two major Insurance companies, Lloyds of London and Swiss Re will no longer cover Medical expenses incurred du to exposure to electromagnetic fields. Here is the Lloyd’s Risk Index 2013: http://www.lloyds.com/~/media/Files/News%20and%20Insight/Risk%20Insight/Risk%20Index%202013/Report/Lloyds%20Risk%20Index%202013report100713.pdf Here’s the Swiss Re emerging risk report from 2014: http://media.swissre.com/documents/SONAR_2014.pdf In 2011, Lloyds had a similar document to Swiss Re: called Lloyd’s Risk Index 2011. http://www.lloyds.com/~/media/Files/News%20and%20Insight/360%20Risk%20Insight/Lloyds_Risk_Index_2011.pdf The 2011 document listed Harmful Effects of New Technology (e.g. nanotechnology, EMF) at 38 of 50 of the Top 50 Priority Risks in North America (the scores were similar in other parts of the world) [Appendix, Chart 16]. This score was virtually exactly the same risk as Climate Change [&hellip

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 [&hellip

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, [&hellip
