[Doctor Devra Davis, EHT Opposition Letter re Ben Hueso & Bill Quirk SB 649 Microcells / Small Cells Public Right-of-way Siting Legislation – FOI Letter from Josée Magas re Assessment of RF Emissions on BC Ferries by Planetworks – ICNIRP – James McNamee, Health Canada – Motorola Industry-funded Studies – RF-EMR Bio-Effects PowerPoint by Steve Weller, ORSAA Oceania Radiofrequency Scientific Advisory Association – Scientific American – Strokes in Young Adults | Canada – Australia – California, USA]

1) Dr. Devra Davis has written a letter in opposition to the bill to allow microcells outside homes.  Sorry for the long url, but I was unable to make it smaller for some reason.

Opposition to SB 649 (Hueso) Letter to California Assembly Member Cecilia M. Aguiar-Curry by Devra Davis for the Environmental Health Trust – June 28, 2017:

2)  This presentation was given in Australia and shows clearly the evidence of harm from microwave exposure from the 1970s to todayIt also shows very clearly how funding influences the outcome. Economic concerns are greater to the agencies like ICNIRP, apparently, than are health concerns. Other major agencies, like Health Canada, follow.

Something of interest. About 10 years ago, Dennis and I were working on the environmental petition for the Federal Auditor General showing that Health Canada’s “researchers”, and those in charge, have conflicts of interest . One example was a study that James McNamee, division chief for health effects and assessments in Health Canada’s bureau of consumer and clinical radiation protection, sent to me to show that RF is safe. It was a very short-term rat study he did that was funded by Motorola. Looking at the industry funding in the US that resulted in “no health effects” in this Australian report, Motorola plays a major role.

3)  A report on number of younger people (18-34) having strokes increased dramatically over the period 2003-2012, especially in large cities. Pollution? There are many kinds of pollution…

More millennials are having strokes. Here’s where

“A growing body of research indicates strokes among U.S. millennials—ages 18 to 34—have soared in recent years.

But an analysis by Scientific American has revealed significant differences in where these strokes are occurring, depending both on region and whether people live in rural or urban settings. The investigation, which used data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), was reviewed by five stroke experts and found that the West and Midwest have seen especially worrisome increases among younger adults. Moreover, large cities appear to have seen bigger increases than rural areas.”

Subject: BC Ferries Fwd: FOI-2018-006 freedom of information request

Dear Sir or Madam,

I just read the attached Executive Summary [http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Assessment-of-RF-Emissions-on-BC-Ferries-Executive-Summary-by-Planetworks-Dec.16-2016.pdf] of the tests for levels of microwave radiation on the BC Ferries done by Planetworks.  Would you please provide me with a copy of the complete report?

I am a member of a large group which includes many people who suffer from severe reactions to radiation emitted by wireless devices and this information is critical for them.  Can you also please provide the names of ferries that are wifi-free, and which routes they travel?

Thank you for your time and assistance.

Regards,
Sharon Noble
