Is Wi-Fi making your child ill?

Posted by seumasach on May 10, 2015

Powerful interests are behind the role out of Wi-fi in schools but the interests of children’s education and health are not one of them. Despite overwhelming evidence spanning over 50 years the likes of Dr Simon Mann can still come out with this:“We do not think the balance of available scientific evidence on radiofrequency has shifted and, as such, our position remains that PHE [Public Health England] sees no reason why Wi-Fi should not continue to be used in schools and in other places,”

Dr Erica Mallery-Blyhte is a brave woman who deserves the support of all right-minded people

Six years ago, Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe moved to the country, stopped carrying a mobile phone and sacrificed a successful career in emergency medicine to focus on a new medical interest – radiation emitted by Wi-Fi, mobiles and other wireless devices.

She is now one of the country’s few professional advisers on medical conditions related to radiofrequency (RF) radiation and other electromagnetic fields (EMFs).

School boards left on the hook for Wi-Fi injuries

26th February, 2015

School districts, school boards and school medical health officers have been notified that Lloyd’s of London has now excluded any liability coverage for injuries, “directly or indirectly arising out of, resulting from or contributed to by electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic radiation, electromagnetism, radio waves or noise.” This would include the microwave radiation emitting from the commercial wi-fi transmitters and wireless devices in our schools.

An invisible danger

Una amenaza invisible

Canal Sur

This documentary from Andalucian television exposes fully the toxic nature of the radiation which we are now being exposed to continually, the greatest threat to humanity and the environment which we face. A must view, including footage from the US embassy affair in the sixties. Quite a lot of it is in English for those of you who don’t understand Spanish

“Electrosmog” Make Birds Get Lost in the City, Study Shows

Chinatopix

For the first time, a new study shows that birds exposed to AM waveband interference lose their way

Researchers at the University of Oldenburg in Germany published a study in the coming issue of Nature, proving that the magnetic compass of robins fail when exposed to even the slightest AM radio waveband electromagnetic interference that are found in all urban areas.

Possible effects of electromagnetic fields from phone masts on a population of white stork (Ciconia ciconia)

Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, 24: 109–119, 2005

 

Living Planet

Monitoring of a white stork population in Valladolid (Spain) in the vicinity of Cellular Phone Base Stations was carried out, with the objective of detecting possible effects. The total productivity, in the nests located within 200meters of antennae, was 0􏰀86±0􏰀16. For those located further than 300m, the result was practically doubled, with an average of 1􏰀6±0􏰀14. Very significant differences among the total productivity were found (U = 240􏰁 p = 0􏰀001, Mann-Whitney test). In partial productivity, an average of 1􏰀44 ± 0􏰀16 was obtained for the first group (within 200m of antennae) and of 1􏰀65±0􏰀13 for the second (further than 300m of antennae), respectively. The difference between both groups of nests in this case were not statistically significant (U = 216􏰁 P = 0􏰀26, Mann-Whitney Test U). Twelve nests (40%) located within than 200m of antennae never had chicks, while only one (3.3%) located further than 300m had no chicks. The electric field intensity was higher on nests within 200m (2􏰀36±0􏰀82V/m) than on nests further than 300m (0􏰀53 ± 0􏰀82 V/m). Interesting behavioral observations of the white stork nesting sites located within 100m of one or several cellsite antennae were carried out. These results are compatible with the possibility that microwaves are interfering with the reproduction of white storks and would corroborate the results of laboratory research by other authors.

Official US government report finds EM radiation threat to birds

Posted by seumasach on March 30, 2014

30th March, 2014

Citing studies by distinguished Spanish scientist, Alfonso Balmori, a letter from US department of Interior admits impact of EM radiation on birds:

“The second significant issue associated with communication towers involves impacts from non- ionizing electromagnetic radiation emitted by these structures. Radiation studies at cellular communication towers were begun circa 2000 in Europe and continue today on wild nesting birds. Study results have documented nest and site abandonment, plumage deterioration, locomotion problems, reduced survivorship, and death (e.g., Balmori 2005, Balmori and Hallberg 2007, and Everaert and Bauwens 2007). Nesting migratory birds and their offspring have apparently been affected by the radiation from cellular phone towers in the 900 and 1800 MHz frequency ranges- 915 MHz is the standard cellular phone frequency used in the United States.”

Thanks to the so-called PISA* (OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment) survey, in Sweden we now know: student scores in maths, reading comprehension and natural sciences are plummeting. The results are prompting rage in Swedish schools. Something is wrong.

Electropollution and the decline in health of a nation

Posted by seumasach on February 15, 2014

Prove-it

The biggest health threat to the US is electropollution. The explosion of iPhones, Blackberries, WiFi, WiMax, video game consoles and even remote-control toys has fundamentally changed our electrical environment. You can’t see it, you can’t taste it, you can’t touch it; but the air all around us is increasingly filled with electromagnetic radiation (EMR) that is penetrating our bodies and disrupting our body chemistry – perhaps forever.
