2020-02-18 Legal action against FCC begun

1) Devra Davis announced that sufficient funds were donated to proceed with the legal action against the FCC and the case was filed on Jan.31. Below is the press release which includes the sad history of the FCC’s failure to follow sound scientific practices re. EMR/cell phones. The same outrageous story applies to Health Canada. This action, if successful, could benefit us greatly.

Historic Legal Action Against The FCC On Cell Phone And Wireless Health Effects

” A group of scientists, consumer health nonprofits, and citizens filed a historic legal action against the FCC for its refusal to update its 24-year-old cell phone and wireless radiofrequency (RF) radiation guidelines. The legal petition contends the FCC’s action is “arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion” and “not in accordance with the law” as the FCC has violated the Administrative Procedure Act and the National Environmental Policy Act by failing to adequately review the hundreds of relevant scientific submissions finding harmful effects from wireless technologies.

The appeal was filed in the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on January 31, 2020 by the Law Office of Edward B. Myers on behalf of Environmental Health Trust, Consumers for Safe Cell Phones, and several individuals. ”

Students upset over new cell phone policy at Dunsmuir Middle School

“In an e-mail sent to parents on Feb. 12, cell phones in schools are cited as “a growing issue for youths and adults alike.”

The e-mail states that studies have revealed children, on average, get a smart phone around the age of 10 and studies show cell phones in schools can have a negative impact on academic performance, concentration, social and emotional well-being and self-regulation.”

Janis Hoffmann has fought for years to have this step taken so that children who are sensitive and parents who are concerned about exposure to EMR have a safer school environment.

We want to know why BC is not banning cell phones and personal devices in our schools?

3) Dr. Karl Maret has shared a PowerPoint of a presentation he gave in January. He included a lot of info about the history of studies of health effects going back more than 40 years. Why are we still hearing Health Canada, the Cancer Societies, our Provincial Health officials say that there is no evidence of harm?

4) Dr. Mercola continues to spread the word about the effort by industry and governments to prevent cell phone users to know the truth about wireless radiation.

Hazards in Your Cellphone

“In 2017, Wendy Mesley with Canada’s CBC News conducted an investigation into a little-known fact about cellphones. Inside the manual is a warning, one that could drastically change the use of cellphones as you know it — if only it were taken seriously.

In short, the warning states to keep the phone a certain distance away from your body — usually 5 to 15 millimeters (mm), or two-tenths to six-tenths of an inch — to limit exposure to radiofrequency (RF) exposure to under the federal safety limit.”
