1)    Telecoms are promoting and planning implementation of 5G devices near our homes, perhaps even in the microcells being put on poles outside our homes. Little research has been done on 5G frequencies, but one study shows that the effects could be extremely dangerous. We are electrical beings and even our sweat glands seem to be perfect antennae for 5G. Here is a letter written by one of the participants in the study to the FCC warning about the dangers.

A simple video re. 5G. I think this is something that could be useful when having to explain why Telus is putting microcells throughout every neighbourhood.

2)    A member found a government document charging Vizio with capturing and sharing personal data via their televisions, etc. By reading this, it seems that Vizio captures data not only via “smart” TVs but also via software loaded remotely on TVs that were not initially capable of doing this.

“The Federal Trade Commission said Monday that Vizio used 11 million televisions to spy on its customers. The television maker agreed to pay $2.2 million to settle a case with the FTC and the New Jersey attorney general’s office after the agencies accused it of secretly collecting — and selling — data about its customers’ locations, demographics and viewing habits.”

3)    In Michigan, lawmakers are trying to allow people to keep their analog meters without an opt-out fee being charged, thus protecting consumers from the power of a monopoly. Where are our politicians who are supposed to be protecting us?

“Rep. Glenn tells News 10 the choice should be up to the home owner.

“As long as those utilities are a state privilege monopoly given the right exclusively to deliver electricity, then we are going to protect homeowners from that kind of monopoly policy,” said Rep. Glenn. “Trying to force certain technology on homeowners against their will or if they refuse to have it installed, charge them.”

4)    Laptops (and other wireless devices) should not be put near the body. Many studies have shown that fertility in men is negatively affected by exposure to microwave radiation via any device, such as having cell phones in pockets or putting laptops on laps.

Today laptops are a great tool for education and learning, work and personal multimedia. Millions of men, especially those in the reproductive age, are frequently using their laptop computers on the lap (thigh). Over the past several years, our lab has focused on the health effects of exposure to different sources of electromagnetic fields such as cellular phones, mobile base stations, mobile phone jammers, laptop computers, radars, dentistry cavitrons and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Our own studies as well as the studies performed by other researchers indicate that using laptop computers on the lap adversely affects the male reproductive health. When it is placed on the lap, not only the heat from a laptop computer can warm men’s scrotums, the electromagnetic fields generated by laptop’s internal electronic circuits as well as the Wi-Fi Radiofrequency radiation hazards (in a Wi-Fi connected laptop) may decrease sperm quality.”

5)    Incident rate of glioblastoma (the type of brain cancer often associated with cell phones) is increasing in UK while other forms are reducing.

“The incidence of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most virulent and deadly type of brain cancer, is going up in the U.K., while the incidence there of other types of malignant brain tumors are declining, according to some newly published raw data.”

Subject: Fwd: Elected Officials in Canada Lack the Guts to Protect Their Children, Families, Homes!

Dear Dr. Kendall, PM Trudeau, Minister Philpott, Premier Clark:

I receive copies of these letters from Mr. Flynn. I understand that Canada Safety Code 6 says that EMF levels of cell phones, smart meters and such are safe. However, as a person, who has developed a sensitivity to EMFs, from house wiring, cell phones, portable phones, fluorescent lights, computers, and Wi-Fi in so many establishments, I think it is imperative that Canada Safety Code 6 be reviewed and adjusted to protect us.

                        

I can no longer eat in most restaurants, because of the Wi-Fi I feel going through my head. One restaurant was kind enough to turn off the large thin screened tv, so I was able to enjoy a birthday celebration. I had to leave a restaurant with Wi-Fi and go to another restaurant across the street, without Wi-Fi to have a meal in Nanaimo. I felt dizzy and ill in a Home Hardware store, while standing under the fluorescent lights, so I had to leave. I go out so seldom now that I forget to watch for these things, until I feel affected and realize what I am exposed to. When I have to go on the ferry, it is very difficult to find a seat that is not under or close to fluorescent lights. Even the hospital, doctor and dental offices leave me feeling dizzy, with brain fog. My doctor acknowledges that my symptoms are in keeping with those of people who are negatively affected by EMFs.

So, when Mr. Flynn repeatedly sends these E-mails, and I get the impression that no one is listening, I am very concerned. It suggests that no one in government is watching out for people like me. We are the proverbial canaries in the mines. We are likely the ones, who already have our immune systems compromised from other toxic sources in our environment. The worse toxic exposure for me was mercury poisoning from dental work, first when mercury amalgams were put into my mouth, and afterwards, when some were removed without following proper protocol procedures. Mercury amalgams were thought to be ok at one time. Now, they are seldom, if ever, used in Canada. Likewise, EMF exposure, at the increasing rate we witness, has already been found to be harmful. Only, our Safety Code has not been brought up to date.

Would you please call upon our Canadian Government to revisit Safety Code 6, to examine the latest, unbiased research, and ensure protection for people like me, especially in public places. But, also, bear in mind, I worry about my grandchildren, exposed to cell phones and computers, in their homes and in schools. I hesitate to phone families, where the only phone they can afford is one cell phone, and not a “land” phone. I no longer keep in contact, as much as I used to a few years ago. And, worse, I cannot travel to visit, as it requires being cooped up in a vehicle, air, bus, train, where there is no relief from any EMF exposure. Motels and hotels are out, as well. I paid for a room in a house supplied for hospital families and had to sleep in my car, because the room I had was full of electric waves. When I leave such environments, I feel better.

I understand that our society has become so intertwined with electric appliances and technology. There probably is a conflict of interest that arises in making decisions. Do we disband all sources of EMFs, or do we at least mitigate, by narrowing the levels of EMF exposure? Surely, we can do that in schools and areas where EMF exposure is not absolutely necessary. In hospitals, might we consider that such widespread use of Wi-Fi is detrimental to the health of the very people whose health is already compromised and for the people who are there to care for the sick? They are being exposed daily for many hours at a time.

I linger at the computer, which is not good for me, because I wish to plea for a healthier environment, not just for me, but for others, for whom it might take longer for their health to be eroded. I ask for babies in the womb, for little children, who are increasingly coming into this world with cancer.

I am asking each of you to tell me what you can do to make our environment healthier with less EMF exposure. What will you do to have Safety Code 6 reviewed and brought up to date to provide more protection, as has been done in other countries?
