[Cell Phones – Health – USA] SPIN vs FACT: National Toxicology Program report on cancer risk from cellphone radiation – Stop Smart Meters Australia – June 01, 2016:

(Joel M. Moskowitz, Ph.D. has created a Fact Sheet on the recent NTP study that summarizes some “Spin” that is being presented in the media on this important study and its findings. These biased statements are being used to sow seeds of doubt in relation to data quality and the implications this research brings to the table. A separate column presents the “Facts” that has in some cases been sourced from decades of peer reviewed research.

Dr Moskowitz is a Director, Center for Family & Community Health, School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley.

The fact sheet and a more detailed discussion of the NTP study findings can be found here http://www.saferemr.com/2016/05/national-toxicology-progam-finds-cell.html

The graphs below helps tell the story from the perspective of real Human brain tumor incidence data. The first graph is based on brain tumor data from The Netherlands….)

The people at the IEEE are supposed to be intelligent people – have they thought about how accurate the readings will be if the transmitter is interfering with the heart rhythm.)

Dear Mr. ,

You’ve asked if the Canadian Cancer Society has a response to this specific report.  We continually review current evidence to develop meaningful information for Canadians on topics related to cancer. You can view our editorial policy <http://www.cancer.ca/en/about-our-site/our-editorial-policy/> around information development.  Our information on cell phones and radiofrequency fields <http://www.cancer.ca/en/prevention-and-screening/be-aware/harmful-substances-and-environmental-risks/cell-phones/> is available on our web site.

I have forwarded your question to our Policy analysts to see if there is other or more information we have to share on this topic.  If so, I’ll send you a follow up message with that information.

Thank you for contacting the Canadian Cancer Society’s Cancer Information Service. Please take a few minutes to fill out this feedback questionnaire <https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2DB9RF7> about the quality of our service. If you have any questions or comments, don’t hesitate to contact us again.

Sincerely,
Jan, Cancer Information Specialist

Health issues surrounding smart meters by Diana Boughton – Mature Times – June 01, 2016:
http://www.maturetimes.co.uk/letters-diana-boughton-health-issues-surrounding-smart-meters/

Dear Sir,

I would like to submit the following letter for consideration for publication. I have kept it brief, but I’ve also attached a pdf file summarising some of the health issues surrounding Smart meters.

I have a website showing the recent disastrous effect on my body of non-ionising radiation from a phone mast, to give you an idea of the problems that this radiation can cause.

http://burntbyaphonemast.weebly.com/

The radiation from Smart meters is in a similar frequency band and I know that many people are suffering as a direct result of Smart meters installed in or near their homes. This is a serious issue of national importance and should not be ignored.

“I urge people not to have Smart meters. There are numerous reports of ill health due to the electromagnetic radiation that they emit. Short term effects include headaches, tinnitus and sleep disturbance.

Long term exposure to this type of radiation has been linked to dementia and Alzheimer’s.

I suffer from electro hypersensitivity (EHS) so can actually feel these frequencies of radiation. I am ‘the canary in the coal mine.”

Please don’t wait until it’s too late. Be SMART and say NO to smart meters.”

Yours faithfully,
Diana Boughton
