2019-01-08 Researchers looking to use smeters to help people with dementia

1)   In the UK researchers are trying to use new devices combined with the smeters to determine if appliances have been turned off, etc. for people with dementia.  What about the microwave radiation which could be causing the dementia or exacerbating it?

NHS to assess benefits of smart meters for dementia and mental health patients

“Government highlights research on how energy use data gleaned from smart meters can be used to better monitor at-home dementia and mental health patients

A major NHS trial to assess how smart meters could help people manage long term health conditions is due kick off this year, following initial research which found energy data could be used to help monitor dementia and mental health patients at home.

Ongoing research by computer science experts at Liverpool John Moores University has been looking at how information on energy use gleaned from household smart meter devices can be interpreted by AI algorithms and intelligent machines to check on house-bound patients and better ensure they are safe.”

 2) Below, in Letters, is a response to Dr. Bonnie Henry’s vapid email which did not answer any of the questions posed or the problem presented. In fact it appears that Dr. Henry, like Kendall before her, didn’t even care enough to read the studies provided. It is time for us to confront Dr. Henry about her failure to do her job. She has the authority, and the responsibility, to prevent the public health problems that are being caused by microwave radiation.  She needs to hear from all of us – we can’t allow her to continue to ignore us and this issue the way Kendall did.

Please consider writing your own email, and please cc Horgan, Dix (the health minister) and your MLA – and your local media if you believe that someone will publish it.

Dear Dr. Henry,

We are appalled that you feel a regurgitated form letter from Kendall’s library of lies and deception was good enough to send to a large group of parents, teachers and students who are concerned about the current proven health risks to our children from the mandatory exposure to microwave radiation exposure in our schools.  Dr. Kendall disregarded and minimized thousands of peer-reviewed studies, providing proof of cancer, DNA damage, protein synthesis, stress response, and detrimental biological and health effects in humans that occur at radiation levels far below the existing Safety Code 6 Guideline.

Dr. Kendall was unable to provide the parents with even ONE peer reviewed study by a scientist or medical expert stating “exposure to microwave radiation is safe for children and the unborn.” He acted negligently and without due diligence in his duty to protect our children by failing to take reasonable steps to mitigate risk from radiation exposure in our classrooms.

You have failed to provide us with an official response to the current findings of the US National Toxicology Program and the supporting Ramazzini Institute Study that confirmed the link to Cancer.

Dr. Stanwick, has endorsed the installation of a known 2b carcinogen listed next to lead, DDT, methyl mercury, chloroform, and car exhaust as an acceptable risk in our schools.  We want to know is Cancer an acceptable risk too?

You state that “. . . and we continue to recommend people make personal choices to reduce their exposure.” How can parents make a Personal Choice to protect their children when microwave radiation exposure is mandatory in all our public schools and hospitals?

As a Provincial Health Officer and a civil servant, paid by the taxpayers of BC, you have failed to do your due diligence by willfully closing your eyes to our requests for answers. We expect our questions to be answered and immediate action to be taken to protect our children from harm in the classroom.

Respectfully,

Janis Hoffmann

Dear Janice Hoffmann:

I am responding to a number of emails and letters you have sent in the last few months. I am aware that you have had several responses from my predecessor Dr. Kendall and from staff at the Ministry of Health on this issue. The Honourable Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, asked that I respond on his behalf.

As you are aware Health Canada administers the Radiation Emitting Devices Act which governs the sale, lease, and importation of radiation emitting devices. The agency has a mandate to carry out research into possible human effects, monitor scientific literature, and develop recommended human health exposure guidelines. Health Canada’s Safety Code 6 sets out recommended limits for safe human exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF). Safety Code 6 is designed to protect all age groups including children on a continuous basis and considers cumulative exposure to electromagnetic fields.

In British Columbia, the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) also provides information regarding the human health effects of electro-magnetic exposures. This information can be found at: http://www.bccdc.ca/health-info/health-your-environment/electro-magnetic-exposures.

In addition the statement from Dr. Kendall and frequently asked questions on this issue is available: http://www.bccdc.ca/health-info/health-your-environment/electro-magnetic-exposures/radiofrequency/do-cell-phones-cause-cancer-statement-from-provincial-health-officer-dr-perry-kendall-optical.

In my role as Provincial Health Officer I, along with my colleagues across the country, continue to monitor the science around electromagnetic fields and have reviewed the recent publications with scientists at the BCCDC and the BC Cancer Agency. There continues to be more research needed around cellphone use and cancer and we continue to recommend people make personal choices to reduce their exposure. The scientific consensus, however, continues to support there is no evidence that exposure to wifi and smart metres and other devices which use radiofrequency transmission at current exposure levels poses a threat to health of children or adults in BC. The statement above remains the position of my office on this issue.

Sincerely,

Bonnie Henry, MD

MPH, FRCPC

Provincial Health Officer
