Brain Tumor Rates Are Rising in the US: The Role of Cell Phone & Cordless Phone Use

The likelihood of developing a non-malignant brain tumor has increased in recent years in the U.S.

According to newly-released data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the overall age-adjusted incidence (per 100,000 persons) of non-malignant brain tumors significantly increased from 2004 through 2012.

The increase was observed among
children 0-19 years of age (1.7 in 2004; 2.3 in 2012)
adults 20 years and older (15.9 in 2004; 19.7 in 2012).

“After ten years of wireless phone use (i.e., cell phone plus cordless phone use), the risk of glioma doubles and after 25 years, the risk triples (Hardell et al, 2013).”

See the full report HERE from SaferEMR.COM

What this tells me is that if the RF Radiation from Smart Meters is similar to that of wireless phones then anyone living or sleeping close to a Smart Meter will also suffer an increased rate of glioma.   (Ted)

Dear Editor:

This letter is written in regards to the recent RDOS moratorium on smart meters. I would like to congratulate and thank the board of the RDOS on passing the resolution asking for the cessation of the smart meter program. This district becomes the 61st municipal body in B.C. asking for caution regarding the installation of these potentially dangerous devices on homes.

The evidence provided by independent (non-industry affiliated) scientists is overwhelming and has led to more than 200 experts submitting a petition to the United Nations asking for a similar cessation of the proliferation of wireless devices http://www.emfscientist.org/.

These 200 scientists have performed more than 2,000 peer reviewed studies showing that serious harmful effects are suffered after prolonged exposure to even low levels of microwave radiation. Certain groups are especially vulnerable – the unborn, children, and those with compromised immune systems.

RDOS director Michael Brydon says that if what director Tom Siddon presented is correct then Health Canada is corrupt or incompetent. He is right. A quick look at the recent review of Safety Code 6 Health Canada’s guideline for exposure to microwave radiation, will confirm this consensus by the scientific community http://www.cmaj.ca/site/earlyreleases/7may15_scientists-decry-canadas-outdated-wi-fi-safety-rules.xhtml.

The process itself was mired in controversy. The Chair of the Royal Society Panel resigned after his conflicts of interests, taking money from the telecommunication industry, were exposed. Several other members of the panel have long-standing affiliation with the industry and other members have no expertise in the biological effects of wireless radiation.

Health Canada itself selected the studies to be reviewed, cherry picking those that supported the status quo, while neglecting more than 150 recent studies, many of which explain causation. Health Canada is corrupt and incompetent. This is its history – remember asbestos, lead, tobacco and now microwave radiation.

Smart meter safety risk – Letter to BC Minister of Energy and Mines Bennett

June 26. 2015 – For Immediate Release

 A COURT TOLD ITRON SMART METERS ARE A FIRE HAZARD.

 What did ITRON know and when did they know it? They knew these smart meters were dangerous and they knew from the very beginning.

 We, the taxpayers who fund BC Hydro, demand a refund from ITRON for selling a defective, dangerous device.

 ITRON’s smart meters have design flaws that make them fire hazards. These were sold to many places before they were sold to BC Hydro, so ITRON had to have been aware of problems long before the contract was signed.

Failures and fires have occurred in BC.   How many no one knows because no one is tracking.

BCUC was told through the Clean Energy Act and Direction 4 it had no authority to interfere in the smart meter program in any way.   BC Safety Authority has been told to butt out of the smart meter program. And the Provincial Fire Commissioner doesn’t track specific causes of fires. So no one knows, except, perhaps BC Hydro and they’re not talking.

But now, through sworn testimony in a legal action in Texas obtained by Sharon Noble, Director of the Coalition to Stop Smart Meters, we learn that there have been many incidents of ITRON Openway smart meters — the same model used by BC Hydro and Fortis BC — failing and burning, palettes of them, according to one testimonial.

Now is the time, before more homes are damaged, and more lives put at risk, to say this program is a fiasco. WE WANT THIS PROGRAM ENDED, AND WE WANT OUR MONEY BACK.

Noble says, “Whenever we purchase something that doesn’t work the way it is supposed to, we can return it and expect our money back. These smart meters were purported to be safe, just as safe as the old analogs. But they aren’t and now we have proof from a completely independent source – a Texas court.   Bill Bennett needs to stop this program, recall the smart meters, demand that analogs be put back in place, and send ITRON the bill.”’

Certainly ITRON knew long ago that these meters were cheaply made with flaws that could cause the meters to fail catastrophically. They should have warned us – it should not be up to us to have to fight to protect our homes. WE WANT OUR MONEY BACK.

Subject: Smart meter safety risk

VIA REGISTERED MAIL
June 25, 2015
Hon. Bill Bennett
Minister of Energy and Mines
Room 301
Parliament Buildings
Victoria, BC V8V 1X4

Dear Mr. Bennett:

In 2012 Armen Kassabian, Ontario Fire Marshal, wrote a report that expressed serious concerns about the safety of smart meters, regardless of the brand.  They fail.  They melt.  They burn.

http://www.stopsmartmeters.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/FireMarshallReportSmartMeterFires-Canada.pdf

Mr. Bennett, for the last 2 years I have been tracking smart meter failures in British Columbia, and have provided you with evidence showing that there is justification for major concern. Just like the Sensus smart meters in Saskatchewan, the Itron meters in BC have overheated, melted and burned. More failures have occurred in BC than in Saskatchewan, yet you and BC Hydro have taken no steps to ensure the public’s safety. In fact, you and BC Hydro have denied that these meters have failed or put lives at risk.

There is now evidence that you cannot – must not – ignore.

With this letter I have provided a printed copy of a recent lawsuit in Texas that contains testimony given under oath by journeyman linesmen who have worked for utilities for many years. They state that ITRON Openway meters used by Centerpoint Energy in Houston, the very same model being used by BC Hydro and Fortis BC, have failed in large numbers. This document also is available at

http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Reed_Answering_Brief-1.pdf

Of particular note:

1)            Those testifying had confirmed fires and failures with other linesmen and trouble-shooters prior to making the statements. Pg. 25

2)            The linesmen reported that the utility had “two pallets of burned up (Itron) meters”.  Pg. 8

3)            The linesmen reported problems with “meters’ communication with the remote site control and many issues with meters melting and burning up.”  Pg. 8

4)            Linesmen determined that “part of the problem was a loose connection between the meter and the meter base because the smart meters had thinner “blades” than the previous analog meters” (emphasis added)     Pg. 8 This gap could cause arcing leading to fires.

5)            Concerns were raised about the ITRON smart meters “creating arc flashes, which could burn the customers’ wiring and create ‘hazardous conditions.’ …These hazardous conditions include potentially causing arc flashes, which could result in anything from minor to third degree burns to technicians who remove the meters.”  Pg. 8

6)            An experienced trouble-shooter for a utility reported that he had “responded to more fire calls once the smart meters were deployed and these often involved heating problems at the meter base.”  Pg. 13

7)            “ Reed’s testimony concerned products used by Respondent. Landis + Gyr is the manufacturer of the AMS meter used by Respondent and Itron is the manufacturer of the meters used by CenterPoint Energy in Houston.”  Pg. 25

The model used in Houston is the ITRON C2SOD, Openway Centron II the same model used by BC Hydro and Fortis BC.

http://www.centerpointenergy.com/staticfiles/CNP/Common/SiteAssets/doc/How%20to%20Read%20Your%20Smart%20Meter%20042010.pdf

8)            At Oncor and Centerpoint there was a consistent corporate message that utility employees are to tell customers that any problem, whether it’s damaged appliances or a fire, was due to the meter base which is owned by the client, not the smart meter.  Pg. 10. This is the same message that, according to Hydro insiders, BC Hydro has given to its employees.

———-

Mr. Bennett, I could provide you with many statistics and data that I have gathered over the last 2 years that would help explain why the meters are a fire hazard, but I believe that is unnecessary. I have provided you with most of them already.   Instead, I will summarize what I have found in addition to the details provided above:

1)            Electronic digital and smart meters — which are combustible and vulnerable to heat — should have reliable means for immediately disconnecting them from the grid in the entirely foreseeable event of circuit failure (lithium-metal batteries, diodes, electrolytic capacitors, transistors, etc.). Such reliable means are apparently not provided. With an effectively unlimited current supply from the grid this lack of protection creates a significant fire risk when the meter is combustible as is the ITRON smart meter.

2)            I’ve been told by knowledgeable people that the remote disconnect switch apparently is unreliable and poorly designed, having been implicated in fires across North American. To function it relies on other components of the meter that, in all likelihood, would be compromised in the event of overheating or other failures. Arcing, arc flash, and heating from the disconnect switch are also serious hazards that derive from the unprotected grid connection.

3)            The meter installation process was questionable, given the lack of qualifications of the personnel recruited to carry out the installations. Use of inadequately qualified installation personnel significantly increases the risk of: (a) failure to observe existing meter base/wiring problems; and (b)  damaging the base during exchange; both of these can lead to “hot sockets” with the attendant risk of fire.

4)            The meter bases into which these meters are being placed were designed, tested, and CSA approved to hold an electro-mechanical analog meter which is not combustible. . Our multiple requests for proof of certification of the meter base in conjunction with a combustible electronic meter, either digital or smart meter, have been ignored. It is a highly questionable practice, probably illegal, to install electronic meters on a base designed and  CSA tested/approved only  for electro- mechanical analogue meters.

5)            In BC the BC Safety Standards Act exempts BC Hydro and Fortis BC from having their equipment certified by CSA and smart meters have been determined to be utility equipment.  The exemption is conditional under section 21-4 which states that utility equipment must be certified safe by a professional electrical engineer licensed in BC.  BC Hydro stated it does not have this certification.

6)            According to the Fire Commissioner’s Office, BC Hydro is allowed to remove and has removed smart meters from scenes of fires before the fire inspection has been completed “since it is their meter.” This runs counter to the BC Fire Safety Act.

7)            BC Hydro has reported that no smart meter has been inspected in its laboratory, Power Tech, after it has failed. Instead all failed meters are returned immediately to Itron for replacement. I have been told in response to a Freedom of Information request that BC Hydro is doing no investigation to determine the reason for the failure.

8)            There appears to be no agency that is tracking incidents involving smart meters.

The BC Utility Commission, according to the BC Utilities Commission Act, has responsibility to ensure BC Hydro’s products and practices will not endanger the public. With regard to the smart meter program, the BCUC informs me this responsibility has been overruled by the Clean Energy Act and Direction 4 because it has been told it cannot interfere in the smart meter program in any way, even with regard to public safety.

The BC Safety Authority, which normally ensures that electrical devices are safe and that any unsafe devices are reported, advised me that they have been told that they have no authority regarding the smart meter program.

9)            Fire reports have indicated the cause of some fires to be due to failed electrical distribution equipment. Len Garis, in the report commissioned by BC Hydro, stated that reference to electrical distribution equipment usually refers to meters.

10)          Budgets to fire departments have been reduced to the point where departments do not have the resources to determine causes of all fires. Many fires are not reported even after 2 years. In addition, one fire chief told me that they were told to rule out arson, and not bother going further. As a result in many cases, the fire’s cause is given as “undetermined.”  Of the fires for which I’ve requested reports from the Fire Commissioner, 50% have no determined cause!

11)          Because of the lack of resources, investigations are carried out by people with limited electrical fire forensics ability, and, therefore, it is possible that many fires that might be associated with smart meters are going undetected. As a result, it is possible that many problems are going undetected and unremedied, jeopardizing the property and lives of British Columbians.

12)          Regulations in Quebec require that Hydro-Quebec ensures that smart meters are not within 3 meters of a propane tank. If the tank or meter cannot be removed, then the remote disconnect switch, which has been found to have been involved in fires in Saskatchewan, must be disabled. It seems prudent that similar precautionary measures should be taken regarding proximity of smart meters to any flammable materials. I wrote to you, Mr. Bennett, and BC Hydro authorities on June 4 asking what precautionary steps BC Hydro would be taking, and to date I received no response.

Our Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Section 7, grants Canadian citizens the right to refuse actions by the government that the citizens believe to be harmful.

Further, “the Federal Court of Appeal has opened the door to lawsuits against government regulators for negligent administration of their regulatory schemes and created the possibility of suing a regulator for damages under public law if the regulator violates a clear duty to act or exercises its public power in an “irrational” or “clearly wrong” manner.”

http://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/beekeepers-abuzz-after-court-allows-clas-01297 /

Based upon the information I’ve provided to you, I believe it is safe to say that this smart meter program has major problems that cannot be ignored any longer. You, Mr. Bennett, as Minister of Energy, are responsible for allowing this program to continue.  With receipt of this package of material, which I am sending via registered mail, you cannot say you didn’t know that these smart meters are fire hazards.

I am sure that your concern for the safety and welfare of your constituents is paramount. Based upon the information I’ve presented, this concern is best addressed by halting the program and removing the smart meters, pending an investigation.

Should you wish further information about anything that I’ve said, please ask.

 

Sincerely,
Sharon Noble

Health Canada, our Provincial Government and Dr. Perry Kendall, our PHO, are NOT protecting us from today’s microwave radiation!

A letter from Jerry Flynn to BC Municipal and Regional Governments

 

June 17, 2015

Dear Municipal/Regional District Governments and UBCM,

Contrary to what Health Canada, the BC Government and BC’s Provincial Health Officer (PHO) , Dr. Perry Kendall tell us all, the unvarnished truth about  today’s wireless radio products e.g., baby monitors, Smart Meters, Wi-Fi routers, cell phones, cell towers, cordless phones, tablet and laptop computers, GPS, AM and FM transmitting towers etc. can be seen below. The attachment is self-explanatory:

  • On May 11, 2015, the International EMF Scientists Appeal, signed by more than 200 world-class scientists from 39 countries and sent to the Secretary General of the United Nations, to all UN member countries, and to the WHO appealed to all of them to protect humans and wild life from the dangers of EMF and wireless technology! http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/05/11/ny-emfscientistorg-idUSnBw115200a+100+BSW20150511
  • Insurance companies WILL NOT INSURE against any health-related claim attributed to the radio / microwave frequency radiation emitted by today’s wireless radio devices!
  • No President and Chief Executive Officer of any wireless or telecom company or any electric utility – anywhere – will state unequivocally that their wireless products are SAFE, i.e., they can be safely used by, on or around people of all ages and sizes, regardless of any illnesses and/or diseases they might already be suffering from, on a continuous basis all day, every day, in perpetuity — as Smart Meters, cell phone towers, Wi-Fi routers, AM and FM towers, cordless phones etc. do. These devices all  emit pulsed, NON-thermal radiation 24/7/365 in perpetuity, and only Wi-Fi routers are capable of being shut off.
  • But the above CEOs all do say that their products COMPLY with Health Canada’s Safety Code 6! It is critical that you fully understand the importance of this difference! Health Canada, the BC Government and BC’s PHO all allow the wireless and telecom industry and both electric utilities to sell and install their purportedly ‘safe’ wireless products simply because they COMPLY with Safety Code 6!
  • Today’s Safety Code 6 dates back to 1979 and, sadly, has changed very little since then (which was almost 10 years before cell phones appeared en masse in Canada, and today there are in excess of 7-Billion cell phones world-wife!). Safety Code 6 is and always has been the root cause of what non-industry scientists consider is a crime against humanity! Because of Safety Code 6, innocent, unsuspecting and utterly defenseless people (including government members themselves and their families) are being literally forced – by law – to endure what has become, over these past 25 or so years, a dense, ever-thickening, yet invisible cloud of electro-magnetic radiation (EMR), which the World Health Organization has coined: “Electro-Smog.” Non-industry scientists the world-over consider this EMR to be the biggest single threat to human health in our planet’s entire history! Originally, Safety Code 6 was established to provide up to six (6) minutes’ protection to federal workers weighing, on average, 200 pounds, who needed to maintain or service high voltage transmission lines, power sub-stations etc. Yet, somehow, over these past 35-or so years, Health Canada has managed things such that the general population are now told that Safety Code 6 protects them from ALL sources of radiation – simultaneously, regardless of how many microwave-emitting devices may impact on a person, a family or an entire community! This is not right! This is knowingly dishonest! This is criminal! Imagine for a moment a Motor Vehicle Highways Department that sets the highway speed limit at, say, 300 MPH, knowing full well that automobiles cannot go that fast! Consequently, no vehicle can ever exceed the ‘legal’ speed limit! The same applies to wireless radio devices: because Safety Code 6 radiation Exposure Limits are so egregiously high, Health Canada and Industry artfully tell us all that their products are in compliance, and therefore they must be safe! Now perhaps the reader can understand why Safety Code 6 is, and always has been, vilified around the world by non-industry scientists and informed people everywhere!
    http://www.magdahavas.com/pick-of-the-week-8-failed-attempt-to-reduce-safety-code-6-guidelines-in-1977/
  • None of today’s wireless products has had to undergo independent, pre-market Safety tests to ensure they are safe to be used by, on and around people on a continuous 24/7/365 day basis in perpetuity! Eminent non-industry scientists say that no level of radiation is safe for people! Examples include: Anthony Miller, Professor Emeritus of the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto, Dr. Neil Cherry of New Zealand (now deceased), two-time Nobel nominee Dr. Robert O. Becker (now deceased), Dr. Olle Johansson of the Karolinskaa Institute in Sweden. Others say: “If there is a SAFE level, we haven’t discovered it yet.”
  • Even the cell phone industry’s own studies, in both the U.S. and Germany, showed their products are harmful to people – – and might lead to cancer!
  • Most if not all major cell phone manufacturers have taken out global patents in which they themselves acknowledge their products are harmful and can cause or may lead to cancer!
  • Every cell phone manufacturer includes in their Owner’s Manual specific instructions not to hold the device within a specific distance from any part of the body – not just the head!
  • It is no accident that the so-called ‘safe radiation Exposure Limits reflected in Safety Code 6 are virtually identical to those of the USA. The specific group of scientists who determine the ‘Exposure Limits’ for the U.S. includes members of the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, Motorola, Nokia, Siemens, Alcatel-Lucent and Bell. All Canadians – governments and public alike – should note that the Co-Chairman of that very committee is Health Canada’s own Dr. Art Thansandote! A position he has held since at least 2008! Dr. James McNamee is also on it (and it was he who was the principle scientist responsible for the latest iteration of Safety Code 6-2015!) Other members include representatives from Health Canada, Industry Canada – – and Exponent Inc., the product-defense scientists who so effectively defended both BC Hydro and Fortis BC with respect to the ‘safety’ of their proposed   wireless Smart Meters!

Readers needing more evidence should note the Federal Government of Canada’s own recent Parliamentary Health Committee (HESA) report on Safety Code 6, in April 2015. (See below).

Parliamentary Health Committee (HESA) Investigation into Safety Code 6, 2015.

(for the full version go to http://www.c4st.org/HESA2015).   Highlights:

  • Health Canada admits studies show harm at levels below Safety Code 6;
  • Health Canada ignores the scientific research: its review is subject to bias and incorrect conclusions;
  • Health Canada and Industry Canada ignore recommendations from the 2010 Health Committee “offer to provide information, including awareness sessions on exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation.”
  • In its “fact sheet”, comparing Canada vs other countries, Health Canada omits countries representing 1.2 billion people with safety levels below Safety Code 6;
  • Health Canada’s statements to the committee conflict with statements made under oath in Quebec Superior Court on Feb. 13th, 2013 (Dr. James McNamee had admitted to the judge in 2013 that Safety Code 6 applied only to THERMAL radiation!).
  • Health Canada admits there are no studies regarding the cumulative effects of several devices from wireless radiation.
  • Health Canada ignores the 2010 Health Committee recommendation to “ensure that it has a process in place to receive and respond to reports of adverse reactions to electromagnetic radiation emitting devices.”
  • Health Canada resists the request to have a database that physicians may be asked to look at any kind of possible cause and effect on new cancers among people?
  • Scientific expert calls for a special category for pregnant women.
  • Health Canada advises that 36 of the 140 Studies submitted by C4ST WERE included in the 2015 Safety Code 6 – BUT WHERE?
Read HESA’s report concerning:
  • Evidence of links to brain cancer;
  • Evidence of links to breast cancers;
  • Evidence that children are more at risk;
  • Canadians feel deceived by product manufacturers and the government;
  • Evidence of damage to sperm;
  • Experts call for public education;
  • Evidence for recognition of, and treatment for, electro-hypersensitivity (EHS).

Readers should recall that in 2010, British Columbia’s Bill 17 (the “Clean Energy Act”) was passed by Gordon Campbell’s government, which mandated that Smart Meters be installed on all dwellings and occupied buildings in B.C. Tragically, the Government of BC permitted B.C. Hydro to utilize wireless radio Smart Meters, which emit pulsed, NON-thermal microwave frequency radiation (called electro-magnetic radiation or “EMR”). One year later, in 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified EMR – ALL EMR – a Class 2B or “Possible” carcinogen. Any reasonable person would have expected, given the WHO’s re-classification of EMR to that of a  Possible Carcinogen, that BC’s Government would have repealed wireless radio Smart Meters and immediately ordered that wireless Smart Meters already installed be replaced with harmless, non-irradiating analogue meters. But that never happened! This is the government British Columbians have today. Consequently it falls to Municipal and Regional governments and to UBCM to wake up and stand up – – for every person, flora and fauna living in British Columbia! If you won’t protect us, who can?

Flynn letter to College of Physicians and Surgeons – Dr. Perry Kendall June 14, 2015

EM – Electromagnetic Age – Sleeping Giant – Dr. Paterson – VERSION 2

Dr Paterson has made several presentations in the Okanagan Valley of BC describing the Potential Health Effects of our modern Wireless Age with Smart Phones,  Wi-Fi devices and Smart Meters.

This is the new version  VER2.

See his slide presentation here.  The format is in PDF format and the file is rather large, about 60 MBytes so you have to down load the file and then open it with Adobe Reader.  Sorry, there is no audio with this version.  We are working on getting a YouTube version with Dr. Paterson narrating and giving more details.

Dr. Paterson’s presentation describes the major health impacts of RF Radiation and is a must view.  Please educate yourself to protect yourself and your family.

The presentation/lecture consists of 153 slides.  So grab a coffee, tea, or a cool beer and sit back and learn about RF Radiation and the impact it has on your health.

Dr. Paterson’s presentation/lecture.
http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/EM Age Sleeping Giant VER2.pdf

If RF Radiation is so bad then why are we having so much trouble getting rid of it?

Many of us believe that radio frequency Radiation (RFRad) is causing many people, perhaps all people, harm.  We are currently seeing an increase in sensitivity of RFRad in the form of EHS (Electro Hyper sensitivity) and various cancers.  Many people feel no harm and are not sensitive but that does not necessarily mean there is no harm being done on a long term basis.

If we lived in a democracy and a large segment of the population expressed concerns about this problem then there would be  major investigations and studies performed to determine the validity of the concerns and the extent of the problem.  The understanding would be that “surely so many people cannot be crazy.  surely there must be something going on that we do not understand”

If we lived in a democracy then our governments would proceed with the Precautionary Principle and would halt the ever increase in the levels of RFRad from Cell towers,  Cell phones,  wi-fi routers and Smart meters until it was clear that harm from RFRad was real and not just psychosomatic.

But we do not live in a democracy.  It looks like a democracy from the outside and everyone calls it a democracy but it is not really a democracy.

Our Canadian governments and those of the USA are owned by the large corporations who have the money and intelligence to make the governments dance to corporation’s music.

The Corporation’s primary objective is to make money for their share holders and so, for a corporation to make money they have to do everything possible to do so.  See the movie available on the internet – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Corporation_%28film%29

The Corporation is psychopathic.  See the definition.

Federal governments are influenced in many ways to make life easier for the Corporations to make their profits,  Lobbying is the term used and good old money is the currency.   I have just found a very recent article published by the Guardian newspaper concerning how major US Corporations have given millions of dollars to various US Senators in order to fast track the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).    Fast track is the term used to get the bill signed without due process of discussion and argument and understanding.   It goes something like this:  “Senator Rob XXXXX of the state of  XXXX,  vote to Fast Track this TPP bill and we will give your election campaign office $120,000.  Agreed?  Good?”.  See the full article at this link.

http://www.theguardian.com/business/2015/may/27/corporations-paid-us-senators-fast-track-tpp

You should be aware of the TPP because Canada and 11 other countries are entering into this trade agreement that seems to be primarily to the benefit of the major corporations and NOT to the various governments and certainly not to the average citizen.  And it seems that the details of the agreement are still secret.  What?  Our government is not letting us know what they are getting us into!  What?  We just might not agree with our government.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trans-Pacific_Partnership

The reason I bring up the TPP and Corporations and the lack of Democracy is that this process is exactly the same as the Wireless business in Canada and the US.    We,  the citizens that are aware and are concerned, are not being listened to by the Corporations or by our elected Government departments – Health Canada being the major one.  Why?  It is because the Corporations have paid so much money to the governments that the Governments cannot change the rules now.  I am not saying that in Canada that the Corporations are paying Senators or the political parties directly similar to what is happening in the US.  The Canadian Government itself  is receiving lots of money from all aspects of the wireless business:  taxes on all sales,  rent of wireless spectrum to the wireless companies (example – Canada wireless spectrum 2500 MHz Auction 2015 January netted about $750 million).

If the Canadian government were suddenly to change its policy and start listening to the concerned citizens and start to remove  or limit the RFRAD devices then they would be forfeiting a huge portion of their income, which they have used to balance the federal budgets.  We would all feel the pinch:  hospitals,  schools,  the military.

So in my view, the current fight of the citizens concerned about the huge growth in the RFRAD and wireless business and electro pollution from Smart Meters,  cell phones and the ubiquitous WiFi will continue until we have enough scientific evidence to prove in court that RFRad is actually damaging our health and that the federal government then must act to prevent further harm.  This will cause  major economic stress on the government but for the continued health of it citizens, it must be done.   My guess is within 4 years from now we will see some major changes.

Bret Bocook died in March 2015 of a brain tumor caused by his use of a CELL PHONE

This was posted originally on Facebook = Citizens For Safe Technology by Karen Weiss

RIP Bret Bocook.   Bret died in March 2015 of a brain tumor caused by his use of a CELL PHONE.

See this https://youtu.be/ueWg82tSnXE

Let’s help get his message out.

In this video Bret talks about many Telecom companies taking out patents for cellphone/antenna designs to lower RF exposure … and how this equates to absolute FOREKNOWLEDGE. That foreknowledge will someday translate to CRIMINAL offenses when the lawyers figure out this is going to be the biggest class action extravaganza in history.

I think that there will be a day in the near future when it is revealed in some way that ALL wireless manufacturers and distributors and federal governments knew and have known for years that the radiation from cell phones when commonly used pressed against the head, that they may cause BRAIN CANCER; that they WILL cause BRAIN CANCER in a portion of the users.

This is the case of FOREKNOWLEDGE and I expect that this will be grounds for pressing CRIMINAL charges against the various companies and governments and the executives and technical staff and even the owners of property on which cell phone towers (masts) have been erected.  There are so many entities that are complicit in this problem.

When this dam of denial breaks then there will be many major class action suits launched and won.    Lloyds of London has already served notice that they want none of this and have stopped insuring anything that is connected with RF radiation which includes CELL PHONES.  They know what is coming. If the retail insurance companies also step out of the line of insurance payment then who will pay for the damage?  The wireless companies will dig deep and pay and then declare bankruptcy.  This is going to be a financial blood bath.  Will the various government pass laws that will prevent any claims because thee will be too much economic turmoil.  Maybe.  They will do what they have to to keep the ship afloat.

The biggest impact will be on the economy when ALL wi-fi and Cell phones will be now used a very limited way.  It is going to be very interesting.  No more free wi-fi in the coffee shops or schools or in the work place.  No more cell towers built on hospitals and tall apartment buildings.  No more seeing people walking down the street glued to their smart phone.  Actually, I think that this may be viewed as a very positive step.

And that will not be the end of the story.  If cancers caused by Cell phone usage takes 10-20 years to be diagnosed then there will be a huge wave of cancers in 2025-2035 that will swamp the health providers and the various health plans.  There are some important studies that predict this just like cancers from tobacco and asbestos.

If you thought that the fight against tobacco and its link to cancer was long and tortuous then just watch this fight, which is going on right now, against Cell phones and other RF Radiation devices which are linked to cancer.

Cell Phone Dangers – Dr. Devra Davis

Published on Apr 25, 2012

In an address to National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), Dr. Davis provides a state of the art science review and concludes that current evidence indicates that cellphone radiation has biological impacts. She summarizes technical studies relying on lab specimens, animals and exposure modeling of children and adults. She also features case reports on young women with unusually located breast cancers who kept phones in their bras and developed tumors located under the phone antennas.
