2015-03-23 New York Times, an example of industry influence

 

  • Below is an open letter to MLAs re. the recent study that confirms RFs promotion of cancer tumours. Please share with the media in your area.

 

  • A perfect example of the influence of the industry on the media. A few days ago, Nick Bilton of the NY Times wrote an article questioning the safety of wearable computers. You might have trouble reading this article, the industry is making it hard with ads popping up, etc. Within a very short period, the NY Times inserted a disclaimer (the addendum) at the bottom of the article (basically throwing the journalist under the bus for the sake of their advertisers.)

 As a follow-up article that refutes the industry’s assertions that everything is just fine.

Many customers of  Hydro One in Ontario  are getting unreasonable bills, and  the Ombudsperson is having to get involved  to force Hydro One before it will even investigate. Very similar to BC Hydro, with recent incidents where people have had to get MLAs involved before an error is acknowledged. Please, keep sending problems/complaints to our Ombudsperson. Hopefully, when she gets enough, she too will begin to investigate this crown corporation. Contact info is at:   https://www.bcombudsperson.ca/home/contact-us

Subject: A new major study confirms low levels of RF radiation promote tumor growth

Open letter to every MLA in British Columbia:

A very important study has been completed replicating one done some years ago, confirming that exposure to low, even very low, levels of radiofrequency radiation (RFR) can promote cancer tumors. What is especially significant is that this study was done by Dr. Alex Lerchl who for years supported the view that there was no evidence of harm unless there was heating of the cells – the same belief that Health Canada holds and our provincial medical officer, Dr. Perry Kendall supports.

Please read about this amazing study and turnaround in Microwave News, Dr. Louis Slesin’s well-respected journal.

“The RF–cancer story took a remarkable turn a few days ago. A new animal study challenged many of the assumptions which lie at the heart of claims that RF radiation —whether from cell phones, cell towers or Wi-Fi— are safe.

The new study, from Germany, a replication of an earlier experiment, also from Germany, found that weak cell phone signals can promote the growth of tumors in mice. It used radiation levels that do not cause heating and are well below current safety standards. Complicating matters even further, lower doses were often found to be more effective tumor promoters than higher levels; in effect, turning the conventional concept of a linear dose-response on its head.

And for those with the stamina to have stayed tuned to the slow-moving RF–health soap opera, the new paper offers an unexpected surprise. The lead author of the new animal study is Alex Lerchl, who for years has charged that the only science showing low-level RF effects is bad science. Now the one whom activists had accused of being an industry lackey is being hailed as a hero.”

 The evidence has been mounting and independent scientists for years have been warning that the increasing RFR pollution can potentially cause harm that is irreversible. DNA can be altered, serious biological/health effects can result, with children and those with impaired immune systems being especially vulnerable.

Despite this, our government and our bureaucrats continue to allow, even mandate, increased exposure in our homes by wireless smart meters and in our schools with wifi. There is no justification for use of wireless technology (except corporate profit) because wired technology, in addition to being safer, is faster, more efficient in that it carries more data, is more secure from hacking, and, in the long run, is cheaper because constant upgrades are not required and it requires less maintenance.

I ask each of you to read this article in Microwave News, review the study, and consider the question: why is this unsafe, unnecessary technology being forced upon British Columbians?  Then, please, support the health of your constituents by demanding that precautionary actions be taken by replacement of wireless devices with wired ones.

Sincerely,

Sharon Noble
