1) Good news from Israel regarding a major TV documentary on EHS and the dangers of RF. Also a major city has banned Wi-Fi in all schools. Please see the email below from a lawyer licensed in both New York and Israel. It’s time that Canada began to follow other countries in their actions.
Please share Dafna’s email widely, especially with School Trustees, Ministers of Education and Health:
Provincial Minister of Health, Terry Lake: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deputy Minister of Health, Stephen Brown: email@example.com
Minister of Education Mike Bernier: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deputy Minister of Education Dave Byng: DM.Education@gov.bc.ca
In case you don’t know, the Deputy Minister is a bureaucrat, not elected, and carries a lot of weight within a department.
If I am sent the TV documentary with an English translation, I will share.
2) In France, an electricity company is suing a municipality for banning $$meters pending getting more info about the many problems. If these things are for the “benefit” of the customers, then why should this suit go forward? It should be left for the citizens of the town to determine if they want them.
3) So long as the public calls for more wireless gadgets, the science will be stifled and dangers of the microwave radiation emitted by them will be hidden until “there are bodies on the streets”.
“Allan Frey became a pioneer in a new field of study known as bioelectromagnetics, and he found what appeared to be very serious non-thermal effects from microwave frequencies. In 1975, he published a paper reporting that microwaves pulsed at certain modulations could cause leakage in the blood-brain barrier. For the previous fifteen years, he had received very generous funding from the Office of Naval Research. With these findings he was told to conceal his blood-brain barrier work, or his contract would be canceled.”
4) A fun song with some interesting slides, especially those re. Peter Valberg of Gradient, whose background is as a “tobacco scientist” and all of a sudden he is a smart meter/microwave radiation expert. Amazing! Lots of interesting things on the sidebar, especially https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuCZ3s_3zis
5) A member found this great site that has so much reference material that can be very useful when writing letters or refuting people from BC Hydro who say RF is safe. Lots of quotable quotes and a bibliography that is very useful. A short section specific to $$meters on page 4.

Subject: Good News from Israel – City Removed Wi-Fi from Schools for Health Reasons
It has been an exciting week in Israel on the fighting the wireless front, with 2 main developments that are likely related:
1) TV Documentary about Electro-Sensitivity and wireless – “HOW WE ARE KILLING OURSELVES – WIRELESS RADIATION”
2) The City of Haifa ordered to disconnect Wi-Fi in all schools and planing to install wired Internet instead
TV Documentary – “HOW WE ARE KILLING OURSELVES – WIRELESS RADIATION”
It started with a 30 minutes TV documentary about the epidemic of Electro-Sensitivity that was aired last Tuesday at 9pm on prime time TV and which got the highest rating of the day.
The name chosen for the documentary: “HOW WE ARE KILLING OURSELVES – WIRELESS RADIATION” leaves no doubt about the message of the movie. Press here for the movie (it is in Hebrew but some interviews are in English)
The tv channel run constant very effective and alarming promo to the movie that created a lot of buzz and to my opinion was even better than the movie itself:-) You can see the promo on my Facebook page.
The director planned to do 10 minutes on ES as part of a film about the diseases of the 21st century, but eventually, after working with us intensely on it, they understood the extent of the problem and the lie and how important it is to give an uncompromising warning to the public and decided to do a 30 minutes documentary mainly on ES and the Wi-Fi in schools.
The host was a leading TV media person and his tone was uncompromising – no maybes, precautionary etc, the tone was – there is an epidemic out there. Wireless harms an it is time for us to wake up as it is late already. He started by saying that at least 800,000 people in Israel, i.e. 10% of the population already suffer from different levels of ES and twice aired parts of my interview in which I was saying that the rates are already higher and will continue to increase.
The two government “experts” who lied to the Israeli Supreme Court admitted on the show that the thermal safety standard is irrelevant (opposite to what they told the Supreme Court). I intend to take action now that we have them on camera admitting the opposite to what they told the Supreme Court and left no doubt that they committed perjury.
Most importantly, the movie created a lot of buzz, undoubted ES and sent a very alarming message and was another strong warning that radiation harms are not potential but existing, an in a scale of epidemic. There was no “other side”. It is ridiculous to me how anyone who does a program/article on this topic insists on bringing the “other side” – why? Journalism is about exposing the truth. If the truth is clear as it is in the wireless issue, once a journalist understand what the truth is he does not and should not let the “other side” to continue and propagate its lie!
Many participated from Israel (Amir Borenstein, Yael Levin and her daughter Noa gave testimony about what it is like to be electro-sensitive, a few parents who fight the Wi-Fi in schools, I was intervied as an expert and activist, on the medical side we had Prof. Richter and Dr. Yael Stein, and the technical side was presented by engineer Liran Raz who did a fantastic work)and from the US : Jennifer Wood whose testimony is very powerful and Prof. David Carpenter . They also mentioned the tragic story of Jenny Fry, the 15 Y/O from England who committed suicide because of the Wi-Fi in school.
City of Haifa announced it ordered to DISCONNECT Wi-Fi from schools
This is truly a Breakthrough – The City of Haifa in Israel announced that it is removing Wi-Fi from schools. This was announced by the mayor, Yona Yahav, who said that “When there is a doubt, when it comes to our children, there is no doubt”. He ordered to have all the Wi-Fi disconnected immediately and to start and put wired Internet instead! I guess the definite tone of the tv documentary that aired this week and the buzz it created helped the city to make the final decision. I believe that now that one city decided to stop WI-Fi the trend will continue and will reverse the pro wi-fi trend. Hope other cities will join. Haifa is the 3rd largest city in Israel.
All of this is really exciting. It seems that the hard work we put in the past few years – the supreme court case, the work on and with the media and the uncompromising message I made sure to send are finally paying off. Please everyone out there – the message should be strong. Electro-Sensitivity is an epidemic it is NOT a 3% of “sensitive population” we are now in the double digits in terms of ES – it is an epidemic and the public must be told and warned. Wi-Fi in schools is a disaster and as a person who spends every day 2-4 hours on the phone with people and children who got sick and many contemplate committing suicide I urge you all to be uncompromising. The truth, and all of it must be told.
Continued good luck to us all and thanks to anyone out there who stands up to evil and stupidity.
Yona Yahav, the mayor of Haifa with children
Haifa municipality disconnects WiFi in kindergartens and schools in the city
The disconnect is until a thorough examination of WiFi safety is done
Haifa’s mayor, Yona Yahav, ordered in coordination with the head of education department, Ilana Truck, to immediately disconnect WiFi in educational system until a thorough examination of the subject. At the same time, Yahav guided to advance the installation of wired safer system.
Yahav: “The education system in Haifa is full of network computers and new, advanced technological systems. However, regarding anything that relates to our children, if there is doubt- there is no doubt. We must take excessive precaution.
As long as the argument on real danger was not refuted, I ordered to disconnect all the devices in kindergartens and in schools. In order not to prevent advanced technology from the children, we will act to activate safe wired system”.
In recent years, the internet media has become part of our daily lives. The use of cell phones, smart phones and computers is gaining momentum among a wide range of ages, where children is an especially sensitive population to environmental effects among them exposure to electromagnetic radiation (non ionizing radiation).
Since the publication of the State Comptroller report in December 2014 on the subject”handling electromagnetic radiation in the education systems by local authorities and private owners”, all relevant bodies were recruited to measure radiation in all schools in the country.
Haifa municipality states, that “the education system has advanced computers system of the highest level. They are under control and stand in annual measurements and until today the results were lower than the demand of the existing standard. “
In view of this, and as long as it was not proven that WiFi radiation is dangerous, a discussion has started in the municipality to take precaution and receive answers from the governmental ministries.
Haifa municipality is organizing a conference for the next month, on radiation from cell phones and smart phones, in order to give knowledge to the public on wireless emitting technologies and their effects. The conference will deal with creating a policy for educated use of cell phones in the education system in Haifa. Part of the conference will be dedicated to radiation from Wi-Fi. This week, in coordination with the head of the city’s education system, Ilana Truck, Yahav ordered to disconnect immediately the WiFi in kindergartens and schools in Haifa until a thorough examination of the subject is done. These days the education system is preparing to gradually install wired system as an alternative in all education system in the city. These will be installed in the first stage in classrooms where pupils learn for the final exams that force use of computers, so they won’t be harmed from the disconnect. The teachers in elementary schools in the city took on themselves to load every evening the studies material from the internet, so that pupils are not exposed and their studies won’t be harmed. Dr. Mona Nofi-Naama, head of non ionizing radiation issue, in the Cities Association Haifa Bay for environmental protection: “According to the precautionary principle, it is needed to reduce the exposure to non ionizing radiation as much as possible, among the rest also WiFi, by reducing the use of wireless networks and to prefer in every opportunity wired connection rather than wireless. The standards relate to thermal effect only, while here the subject is health effects that do not relate to heating that are in low levels below the standard, but were not defined.
