Beware – Our Water is Poisoned!

Was Fukushima worse than we were told?
Beware – Our Water is Poisoned!
by Dr. Susan M. Walker, Guest Writer for Wake Up World, 30 July 2015

Where we stand now in 2015, everyone is drinking or absorbing poisoned water. Not just the usual poisons so many health advocates have spoken of – such as fluoride, chlorine and certain heavy metals that contaminate our drinking water – no, I’m referring here to a poison far more insidious and far reaching in its implications, and unless the water you drink is home filtered by reverse osmosis, or distilled by steam, your water is likely poisoned (along with your food supply) with radioactive waste sources outside of what is considered “naturally occurring” radiation, such as radon (a TENORM).

What is alarming, is the accumulative amount of man-made radioactive waste such as tritium (a by-product of nuclear reactors, identified in municipal water reports as ‘tritiated water’ or HTO) (Biello, 2014, Scientific America). Tritium is linked to cancer, it’s radioactivity is partly water based and can in theory go anywhere in the body. What is even more alarming is that radioactive tritium is only a part of the radioactive poisons in the drinking water, but it is showing up in higher quantities, along with other radioactive isotopes.

4G phones might mean more exposure to radiation

India is waiting with bated breath for the nationwide coverage of 4G, just like we waited for 3G to change our lives a few years ago. I have been on a 4G SIM for the past couple of weeks, and wherever I can get the signal in Delhi-NCR, the internet speeds are faster and pages do open up a tad faster.

But there will be something about the new 4G phones that no one will discuss, and that is how these phones with a better signal strength will emit more radiation. Technically, anything that can send out or receive signals emits a certain amount of radiation. Most of it is within limits of human endurance though, we are not built to adapt to systemic waves — every thing has radiation, but natural radiation is not systemic. This is why sustained exposure to cell phone radiation over long periods of time — like when you carry your smartphone in your pocket the whole day, or leave it under the pillow overnight — could have serious health implications. According to the US Federal Communication Commission (FCC) all phones sold within the US come within the recommended levels of RF energy, still it suggests that it is better to keep the phone a safe distance away if you “must conduct extended conversations”. The safe distance suggested is between 5mm and 25mm. So keeping the phone next to your ear is certainly not recommended.

74 NASA Scientists Have Been killed In The Last Two Years.

NASA scientist Alberto Behar died in a plane crash in
January 2015 in Los Angeles, making a total of 74
scientists dead in 2 years.
"In a time where conspiracy is commonplace it is increasingly difficult to differentiate between what could be a conspiracy and what is simply an unfortunate event. It is incredibly suspect why so many of these deaths are so odd, the people who were killed would have access to sensitive information that government officials may not want disclosed."

[Remember the 2010 BP Gulf oil spill? at least 10 BP and oil spill related whistleblowers or experts died within a short space of time after the oil spill.  (See Wake Up World article on my blog.)]

74 NASA Scientists Have Been killed In The Last Two Years. What's Going On?

Unusually high number of scientist deaths in recent years

NASA scientist Alberto Behar died in a plane crash in January (2015) in Los Angeles – making a total of 74 scientists dead in 2 years.

Alberto Behar had helped to prove that there had once been water on Mars, having worked on two missions to Mars. He was also a robotics expert who researched how robots function in harsh environments (such as under water or inside volcanoes).

Investigation into Death of Dr. Jeff Bradstreet

This may provide some answers to the recent mysterious deaths of doctors and researchers. We have posted only a part of this long article. 

INVESTIGATION: Three days before Dr. Bradstreet was found dead in a river, U.S. govt. agents raided his research facility to seize a breakthrough cancer treatment called GcMAF
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, Natural News, 27 July 2015

(NaturalNews) The history of the suppression of medical science in America is a long one, filled with true accounts of pioneering doctors and clinicians being threatened, intimidated and even assassinated in order to bury emerging cures and keep the "sick care" industry in control. (The American Medical Association, for example, has been found guilty by the U.S. federal courts of a conspiracy to destroy the chiropractic industry, by the way.)

Over the last few days, we've learned that before being found shot in the chest and floating in the river, pioneering medical researcher Dr. Bradstreet was working with a little-known molecule that occurs naturally in the human body. Called, "GcMAF", this molecule has the potential to be a universal cancer cure for many people. It has also been shown to reverse signs of autism in the vast majority of patients receiving the treatment.

ECO DECT Cordless Phones

We are posting this article because most people do not know that cordless DECT phones emit very high levels of electromagnetic radiation.  ECO DECT cordless phones, which emit less radiation, are available in Europe, but are rare in the United States.  I am electrosensitive and for a long time, my neighbor's DECT phone was emitting very strong radiation which affected my health.  This seems to have changed, however, in my small building (with only 3 apartments on each of the 7 floors) we have picked up over 10 different Wi-Fi signals, some very strong.  

The author advises that the best option is to USE A CORDED PHONE. "Think twice about deploying your own WiFi network, which will add to the radiation. At least turn it off when you are sleeping," advises this article, [and I would add, when not in use.]

Siemens ECO DECT green cordless phones – Panasonic ECO DECT cordless phones
Posted by Norman F., easyecoblog.com, 11 July 2012

Did you know that (DECT) 1.9Ghz digital cordless phones emit the same type of pulsed microwave radiation (about 1.8 GHz) as ordinary (GSM) cell phones. Emissions can be about 6 V/m within a metre of the base unit, for as long as it is plugged in. Companies push these phones because they do not interfere with Wifi networks. Many base stations emit their radiation even when the phone is not in use! Microwaves are continuously emitted 24 hours a day as long as they are plugged in. Not good. DetailsMore Warnings. – “DECT cordless phones work at a fixed power. Mobiles turn their power down to the lowest level possible, so when you are near a base station this can be much lower than a DECT cordless. DECT pulses are far more aggressive than for mobiles.”

Switzerland: Testimonies of Electrophypersensitive Persons: Godeliève, Léonard, and Sosthène

Godeliève and Léonard Richard, siblings, are both
electrohypersensitive and shield themselves against waves
from Wi-Fi and smartphones, mainly by using wired
phones and protective cards on their cell phones.
(Christian Galley)
"[Electrohypersensitive people] do not know where and how to live.  I believe that society has a duty to assist them.  They have a right to life, health, and respect, like everybody."

Electrosensitive, they shield themselves
by Sylvia Freda, L'Impartial, 27 July 2015

(translated by the Editor of this blog)

Godeliève and Léonard Richard have a difficult time.

Even if wireless devices are extremely practical and tied to the notion of liberty, as soon as they are near Wi-Fi and cell phones, Léonard and Godeliève Richard, siblings living in Ponts-de-Martel, suffer from them.  And not just a little.  They don't experience insignificant dizziness or ordinary complaints. "It's much worse, at times!  I reached a stage where I believed I was going crazy because I could no longer think", says Godeliève.  "I was constantly dizzy, as on a boat, I had tingling in my fingers and toes, difficulty moving my limbs, headaches, concentration problems.  Always tired and agitated, I could not sleep."

AMA Prepares Gag Order for Medical Dissenters –
From Alliance for Natural Health

The American Medical Association’s latest attempt to shore up their medical monopoly could have stiff consequences for practitioners who don’t toe the line. Action Alert!

Angered by what they call “quack MDs,” the AMA recently decided to “actively defend the profession.” In particular, it plans to

create ethical guidelines for physicians in the media, write a report on how doctors may be disciplined for violating medical ethics through their press involvement, and release a public statement denouncing the dissemination of dubious medical information through the radio, TV, newspapers, or websites.

Even though an entry into the digital world is inevitable, it could be detrimental to the mental health and well-being of children who are using technology as a major tool of entertainment at a very young age.

Tablets and laptops have replaced pacifiers and stuffed toys for children. Research has also revealed that toddlers can use a tablet before he learns to walk or speak.

Prostituting Science: The Psychologisation of MCS, CFS and EHS for Political Gain: Book Review

"Prostituting Science explores the paradox whereby the more that is known of a physical aetiology for these disorders, the more widely accepted have become allegations of psychogenesis. Within this context are also recounted gross abuses of the civil and human rights that other citizens of a representative democracy tend to take for granted."

Prostituting Science – The classification of bona fide physiological disorders as psychogenic illnesses for political gain
Posted on July 23, 2015 by Stop Smart Meters Australia

A monumental and perhaps the most inclusive work ever on MCS and EHS. Pelda B. Hyman, New York.

In presenting a host of the non-communicable diseases that currently plague our society not simply as diseases of civilization but as by-products of that civilization’s reliance on chemo- and electrowizardry, Prostituting Science takes up where Silent Spring left off.

Prostituting Science documents authoritative evidence for such an aetiology for a number of contemporary disorders ranging from asthma, migraine, diabetes, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and cardiovascular disease; through ADHD, autism, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, depression and schizophrenia; to chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity, and electromagnetic hypersensitivity.

Hackers broke into the massive hospital network of the University of California, Los Angeles, accessing computers with sensitive records of 4.5 million people.

Names, medical information, Social Security numbers, Medicare numbers, health plan IDs, birthdays and physical addresses -- all were potentially stolen, according to the university.

That could affect anyone who has visited -- or works -- at the university's medical network, UCLA Health, which includes four hospitals and 150 offices across Southern California.

UCLA Health made this announcement on Friday -- two months after it discovered the extent of the data breach.

Switzerland: Electrosensitivity: "Electrosmog Makes Me Sick"

"The underestimated risk"
Electrosensitivity :  "Electrosmog makes me sick"
Beobachter 15/2015, 24 July 2015 (translated by the Editor of this blog with the help of Google.)

Around 5 percent of the Swiss population consider themselves electrosensitive - Lucja Stankiewicz is one of them.

Electrosensitive persons suffer not only from their ailments, but also from the stigma of being a hypochondriac.

Lucja Stankiewicz has had a successful career as a psychiatrist.  She was also a municipal councillor in Muri, well-traveled, and much involved socially.

When she bought a new cellular phone, the complaints began. Suddenly she felt dizzy when making calls. She returned the phone and switched the old one back on. The symptoms disappeared.  Months later,  technicians laid an ISDN line. Stankiewicz suddenly began to suffer from severe insomnia, which disappeared after switching off the line.

One Million British 5 Year-Olds Carry Cell Phones - Cancer Threat a "Ticking Time Bomb"

RE-POSTED:
"Ongoing research suggests that using mobile phones for extensive periods of time over the course of several decades can lead to a 250% increase in the chances of an adult developing a brain tumor. In the case of children, the risk is thought to increase as much as 500%."

A Million British 5-Year-Olds Carry Cell-Phones – Cancer Threat a “Ticking Time Bomb”
by Meredith Hoster, highlightpress.com,
23 August 2013

Health groups in the UK have spoken of the ‘ticking time-bomb’ waiting to wreak havoc in years to come, after it was revealed that one in every ten kids in Britain receives a mobile phone by the age of five. As it stands, more than a million youngsters of five and under now carry mobile phones and Smartphones provided by their parents.

Most are apparently buying the devices for their kids to use for entertainment and emergency purposes only.

However, the Department of Health has warned once again of the potential dangers of using mobile phones for extended periods of time from a young age. In addition, the most senior medical figures in the UK insist that for anyone under the age of 16, a mobile phone should be used sparingly at best and for short periods of time only.

Cell Phones: 'Electronic Heroin' for Kids

Children should not be holding
cell phones to their heads, and
babies should not be using
them at all !!
RE-POSTED:
"Adults who wouldn't dream of buying $50 a month for alcohol to give to their kids are willing to spend that amount or more to provide electronic heroin for them. Maybe it's time for we adults to put on our big boy or big girl pants and raise kids to be nonaddicted, thinking persons by responsibly limiting youngsters' access to mind-numbing, inane electronic pollution."

LETTER: Cell phones: 'Electronic heroin' for kids
by Lon Zimmerman, Sioux City Journal, 8 October 2013

SERGEANT BLUFF | One of the most popular words in our vernacular of human maladies is "addiction." It is used to describe a variety of poor choices made by individuals and is an excuse for being irresponsible enough to become addicted in the first place. The number of addictions is growing at a rate that seems similar to the reproductive cycles of rats.

Powerful Ads Show What Your Child Sees When You're Addicted To Your Phone

10 July 2015

A new Chinese ad campaign illustrates the way smartphones can affect family life and relationships.

Titled "Phone Wall," the campaign by Ogilvy & Mather China is a literal representation of the barriers to human relationships that screen addiction creates.

"Pulling out a phone during a conversation is like erecting a brick wall between two people," Juggi Ramakrishnan, Executive Creative Director (ECD) of Ogilvy & Mather Shanghai, told The Huffington Post. "We want people to see this and rethink their relationships with others and their phone in a different light."

The campaign is for the Center for Psychological Research, Shenyang, a government body focused on raising awareness around social issues and causes. Ramakrishnan says screen addiction is a growing issue in China. "This is a definite pressure point that Chinese society is facing on its path of rapid development," he said, noting that smartphones and social media seem to permeate "all aspects of everyday life" -- from shopping to business to social interactions.

Currently there is no central collection point in Canada for important information on tumours

An Alberta researcher is helping to build a national brain tumour registry to help find missing clues to what causes brain tumours and other information that could help to improve survival rates.

"At this moment we don't know how good our care is," said Faith Davis, a specialist in chronic disease epidemiology at the University of Alberta's School of Public Health.

"We don't know whether or not patients in one province are doing better than patients in another province. And we don't know if we have clusters of areas in Canada where the rates of tumours are higher than other areas."

Screen Addiction Is Taking a Toll on Children

Paul Rogers
[This New York Times article has generated more than 700 comments.  A family member commented that an excellent way to raise awareness of the risks of wireless technology is to mention the effects it is having on children, such as addiction.  Parents can relate to this, whereas the "invisible", insidious biological health effects are not too apparent - brain tumors from intensive cell phone use, for example, take 15-20 or more years to develop.  It is such a shame that most parents are not aware of the serious physical harm that comes from over-exposure to wireless technology.]

Excessive use of computer games among young people in China appears to be taking an alarming turn and may have particular relevance for American parents whose children spend many hours a day focused on electronic screens. The documentary “Web Junkie,” to be shown next Monday on PBS, highlights the tragic effects on teenagers who become hooked on video games, playing for dozens of hours at a time often without breaks to eat, sleep or even use the bathroom. Many come to view the real world as fake.

India: Airtel to Customers: Tell Us Where to Put Mobile Towers

Airtel to customers: Tell us where to put mobile towers
indiatoday, IANS New Delhi, 16 July 2015

In a bid to beat the call drop menace, Bharti Airtel has written to its customers to help the company find suitable places to construct mobile towers in their localities.

"So, I want to take this opportunity to ask for your help. If you face significant call drops in your locality, can you help us find a location for a mobile site in the vicinity?," Gopal Vittal, managing director and chief executive officer (CEO) of Airtel, said in personalised letters to the customers.

The company said it had to shut down many of its sites due to misplaced fear of radiation.

"We are also committed to making requisite investments in additional sites to leverage this spectrum. But we have to physically install these sites," Vittal said.

"While we already make every possible effort to make this happen, placing sites has become a serious problem in most cities due to misplaced fears of the impact of sites and air waves," he added.

The Fitness Wearable So Dangerous It Was Supposed To Be Destroyed

Is there such a big difference between the Relax-A-Cizor wearable, with electrode pads on the skin generating  electric pulses to stimulate muscles, and modern-day wearables, such as the "Mimo" baby monitor, incorporating sensors in the onesie close to the baby's skin, relaying data through the cloud to smart devices, bathing the baby in damaging electromagnetic radiation?

The Fitness Wearable So Dangerous It Was Supposed To Be Destroyed
by Kate Knibbs, gizmodo.com, 16 July 2015

In 1952, the New Yorker praised it as the “first portable reducing machine in the world,” and interviewed a Relax-A-Cizor “contour consultant” who insisted it would make callisthenics obsolete. Selling “sexy exercise” worked.


To use the device, people placed electrode pads — two to 12, depending on their model — on their “problem areas”. They turned the machine on for 30 to 60 minutes, or 10 minutes for the face. Attaching more than one pad to the body created a complete electrical circuit, and people could control the intensity of the electric pulses with a dial as its “slimming” jolts stimulated muscles via motor nerves, all while they lay around in ultimate lazy comfort, blissfully unaware of its high chances for inducing catastrophic malady.

Comments on Wireless Technology and Electrosensitivity

We are updating this newspaper comment by adding one from Nancy Miller in Canada, replying to a CBC radio program on the subject of "How are employers accommodating your disability?" (Federal public servants with visual impairments say their employer is failing to get them the tools they need to do their jobs. How well are employers accommodating you?):

Nancy Miller

I resigned from my teaching position due to lack of accommodation for an invisible illness - environmental sensitivity. I did get accommodation for chemicals/scented products, but NOT for electrohypersensitivity (EHS), which is a biological reaction to radiation frequencies from wireless networks (and is recognized as a disability by the Ontario Human rights Commission).

There is an increasing number of teachers (and students) who can no longer tolerate being in a wireless environment for extended periods of time. We experience chronic head and muscle aches, extreme fatigue, rashes, foggy thinking and irregular/rapid heart rates. These health effects are not conducive to effective teaching! The accommodations we are requesting are easy to implement: a wired connection for our personal computer, on/off switches for the access point (router) in the classroom and in common areas, and requesting that those working within 15 meters put their cell phones in "airplane" mode.

Teachers with this disability are being denied accommodation, as I believe it is becoming a hot-button issue, just as cigarettes were a few decades ago.

If someone had told me 10 years ago that I would be too ill from wifi technology to continue in my job, I would not have believed them. Yet this is my reality; it's been a financial struggle as well as a social one, and one that has a very reasonable solution.

Wireless and EMF Reduction for Autism

Unplug the cordless phone

More than 550 scientific studies have linked autism to exposure to radiofrequency radiation / electromagnetic fields, according to Dr. Martha Herbert, Professor of pediatric neurology at Harvard University.  (See the December 2012 BioInitiative Report, Section 20.)

Wireless and EMF Reduction for Autism
Clear Light Ventures, 31 July 2014

Over the last 15 years I have helped my children recover from autism and have watched them develop into really remarkable young men. 10 years ago, I was able to quit my job and focus on their recovery full time. I have the time, money and access to some of the best experts in the world. I have looked at the wide range of theories around autism and talked to parents whose children have regressed into autism and also recovered.

The question to ask is not can children recover, but what are the most simple and effective protocols for recovery? Families with autistic children are already overburdened and overloaded on all levels. They need something simple and effective that they can try for free.

Can you actually hear 'inaudible' sound?
by Erika Schow, medicalexpress.com, 
10 July 2015

Are wind farms harmful to humans? Some believe so, others refute this; this controversial topic makes emotions run high. To give the debate more objectivity, an international team of experts dealt with the fundamentals of hearing in the lower limit range of the audible frequency range (i.e. infrasound), but also in the upper limit range (i.e. ultrasound). The project, which is part of the European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP), was coordinated by the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB). At PTB, not only acoustics experts, but also experts from the fields of biomagnetism (MEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) were involved in the research activities. They have found out that humans can hear sounds lower than had previously been assumed. And the mechanisms of sound perception are much more complex than previously thought. Another vast field of research opens up here in which psychology also has to be taken into account. And there is definitely a need for further research.

Call for Electrsosensitives for New Study - from Liz Barris 
July 2015

Hello All,

It is my intent to prove electrosensitivity (illness caused by wireless products and infrastructure, dirty electricity stray voltage, etc.) in a court of law in the US. Not workman's comp court or small claims court (although that too is important) but in regular state or federal court.

To achieve this end, we are going to need peer reviewed, published studies proving it. For this purpose, a short while ago, I sought out Dr. Heuser (physician behind fire fighters brain scans in IAFF - report) due to his work on the fire fighters IAFF and his excellent track record as an expert witness for chemical sensitives who have won their cases. The timing was right as he told me he was coming out of retirement to work on the EMF issue and agreed to do a study that we can use in court should the results yield what we believe they will.

France: Testimony of Violette, 14 years old and electrohypersensitive

The mountains of Ariège
This testimony of Violette, 14 years old and electrohypersensitive, was read out, probably at a gathering of EHS in France in August 2014.  We have done our best to do justice to this very poignant testimony when translating it into English.

Violette Gould, Couserans, Ariège - 
August 2014
EHS: Lueurs sous les MHertz

To Everyone,

There it is: a letter from me.  It is all that I could do to participate in this gathering.  However, to be present, to meet other people, to exchange..., I dream of this!  To throw myself into the world, build with you... My "fate" denies me this.

But is it really my "fate" denying me this?

I am going to tell you the story of the disaster which is occurring in my life.  You may then form an opinion about responsibility for my fate.

I am now 14 years old.  When this began, I was 10.  Until that moment, my life had been normal;  family life, school, my friends, my love for the mountains of Ariège... Great Happiness, very great Happiness:  I was free (except when my parents restrained me!)  The beginning of the catastrophe occurred during the start of the 5th year in school.  I will forever remember this period as a nightmare.

Nuclear Chemist Finds Cause of Explosion of Diseases Worldwide is Chemtrails Made Up of Toxic Coal Ash

Dr. Marvin Herndon
This month, in the peer-reviewed journal Current Science (Indian Academy of Sciences), Dr. Marvin Herndon, a highly regarded nuclear chemist, writes about his findings that chemtrailing or geo-engineering is taking place in our skies all over the world, and causing major health problems such as autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ADHD to name but a few… not to mention the manifold destruction of plant and animal life.  Read Dr. Herndon's article, Aluminum poisoning of humanity and Earth’s biota by clandestine geoengineering activity: implications for India,

Nuclear Chemist Finds Cause of Explosion of Diseases Worldwide is Chemtrails Made Up of Toxic Coal Ash
by Ishtar Babilu Dingir, The Holistic Works, 6 July 2015

As a 60-year-old, I find it bizarre when people insist that our blue skies were always criss-crossed with blurred white lines. In my memory, they really were not that way. Even 20 years ago, the skies were clearer and bluer, and the thinner contrails from aeroplanes, which are much higher up, dispersed within minutes … unlike the metallic sheen from chemtrails which blocks the sun for half the day.

But it seems that how ever much evidence is provided to show that chemtrailing is a real and present danger to humanity, many cannot face even looking up to see them for fear that their whole world view would then come tumbling down.

Apple Feeling the Burn: Watch Wearers Take to Twitter to Share Photos of Rashes 'Caused by the Device'

Apple feeling the burn: Watch wearers take to Twitter to share photos of rashes 'caused by the device'
by Sarah Griffiths, Daily Mail online, 9 July 2015

- Handful of people have shared photos of rashes and 'burns' on Twitter
- They say they are caused by wearing the Apple Watch
- Apple has not yet commented on the images, but its support page warns some people may react to materials such as nickel, used in its timepiece


The Apple Watch may be used by many as a fitness aid, but some users are feeling the burn in a less desirable way.

A handful of people have taken to Twitter to share photos of 'burn' marks and rashes on their wrists, which they say are the result of wearing an Apple Watch.

Apple warns on its webiste that 'a small number of people will experience reactions to certain materials,' but has so far not commented on the recent photos.

An iOS App developer named Dinalli tweeted: 'Not worn my Apple Watch today, yet there seems to be some sort of burn. Anyone else got this too ? '

While a more excitable user called Andrew Terry tweeted: 'wtf? My Apple Watch has burnt a hole in my wrist!!' and posted an image of red marks and a sore on his wrist.

DECT Cordless Phones (and WiFi) Causes Heart Irregularities

This year, there have been several reports in the media of young teachers collapsing in front of their students in classrooms and dying of heart attacks. The most recent story is of a 7-year-old girl at a school in the United Kingdom, who went into cardiac arrest in the classroom and died. In looking at the reasons for these heart attacks, have doctors considered wireless technology? We do not know whether these schools have Wi-Fi in their classrooms.  We should write to these schools to educate them about the risks of exposing children and teachers to Wi-Fi and also to the hospitals where these persons were taken.

DECT Cordless Phones (and WiFi) Causes Heart Irregularities
Powerwatch, 22 October 2010

DECT Cordless phones which transmit a pulsed signal have been shown to impact heart rate in new research published in the European Journal of Oncology [1].

The double-blind, peer reviewed provocation study of 25 people validates the condition complained of by increasing numbers of people across the globe today called 'electrosensitivity' (ES or EHS), demonstrating immediate effects on heart rate, almost doubling the heart rate in some cases. The study was led by Prof. Magda Havas of Trent University, Canada.

The Story of Silent Spring

"Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, which in 1962 exposed the hazards of the pesticide DDT, eloquently questioned humanity's faith in technological progress and helped set the stage for the environmental movement...

"The threats she had outlined -- the contamination of the food chain, cancer, genetic damage, the deaths of entire species -- were too frightening to ignore. For the first time, the need to regulate industry in order to protect the environment became widely accepted, and environmentalism was born."

The Story of Silent Spring -
How a courageous woman took on the chemical industry and raised important questions about humankind's impact on nature.
Summary by the Natural Resources Defense Council

Although their role will probably always be less celebrated than wars, marches, riots or stormy political campaigns, it is books that have at times most powerfully influenced social change in American life. Thomas Paine's Common Sense galvanized radical sentiment in the early days of the American revolution; Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe roused Northern antipathy to slavery in the decade leading up to the Civil War; and Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, which in 1962 exposed the hazards of the pesticide DDT, eloquently questioned humanity's faith in technological progress and helped set the stage for the environmental movement.

The World Health Organization Continues to Spread Its Lies: "There Is No Evidence of Any Relationship Between Telephone Antennas and Cancer"

Dr. Maria Neira
WHO's lies regarding "no relationship between cancer and electromagnetic emissions and other diseases" continue to be spread, this time, by Maria Neira, the Director of the Department of Public Health and Environment, WHO.  We wrote Dr. Neira several years ago regarding this issue.  She never replied.

United States: Body of Prominent Autism Doctor Found in River — Family and Patients Cry Foul

"As one reader at Fox News bluntly points out, 'Self-inflicted? In the chest? I’m not buying this. This was a doctor who had access to pharmaceuticals of all kinds. This was a religious man with a thriving medical practice. Sorry, but this stinks of murder and cover-up.' "

Body of Prominent Autism Doctor Found in River — Family and Patients Cry Foulby Carolanne Wright, Contributing Writer for Wake Up World
2 July 2015

A leading autism researcher and physician was found dead last week in North Carolina under what many believe are questionable circumstances.

The body of Dr. Jeff Bradstreet was discovered by a Rocky Broad River fisherman in Chimney Rock, North Carolina Friday afternoon June 19th. A press release by the local sheriff’s office states that Dr. Bradstreet “had a gunshot wound to the chest, which appears to be self inflicted.”

An investigation into the death is still in progress. Results from the autopsy on June 23rd have yet to be released.

Notably, Dr. Bradstreet’s death occurred shortly after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Georgia Drugs and Narcotics Agency raided his clinic.

Wireless Breast Cancer Detection Device to Launch in India and the US
Press Trust of India, 10 June 2015

A wireless handheld device which will enable any health care worker to conduct a breast cancer examination within five minutes and access the results on a smartphone or tablet would be launched next month in the US and India, a top US official has said.

The device is the outcome of US Commerce Department's Economic Development Administration investment of $1 million in a proof-of concept centre to bring life-sciences research to the market, US Commerce Secretary, Penny Pritzeker told the students of Columbia University on Tuesday.

"Scientists at Drexel University, working with the centre, developed a hand-held, wireless breast cancer scanner, called the iBreast Exam. This device will enable any doctor or health care worker to conduct an exam within five minutes, and then access the results on a smartphone or tablet," Pritzeker said in her address to the 'Future of Urban Innovation Summit' in New York.

Toxic Toys
Tribune de Genève, 11 December 2012

This year, Father Christmas is bringing toxic gifts.  Among these, the Vtech Storio 2 tablet, designed for children aged 3 to 9.  The use of these electronic "toys" can generate language, reading and writing difficulties in young children.  These tablets are made in Vtech factories in China under deplorable conditions for employees, according to a report published by the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights.  Employees work standing up 12 to 15 hours a day, six days a week, for a salary below the minimum wage.  They suffer health problems created by exposure to toxic dilutants used to clean circuit boards.

It is time that parents behave as responsible consumers by no longer buying electronic toys that are "toxic" to the workers who make them and to the development of the young children who use them.

The Death of Bees:  Monitor Cell Phone Radiation
Tribune de Genève, 16-17 June 2012

Research has shown that electromagnetic pollution emitted by wireless technology can affect the health of living creatures. It is not only pesticides and parasites that are contributing to the disappearance of bees.

According to a Swiss study published in the journal, Apidology, waves emitted by this technology can have an impact on the behavior of bees, inducing alarm signals from the workers bees announcing either preparation to swarm or reflecting important perturbations in the colony.

A study by the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Zurich, has noted an increased risk of cataracts in calves raised near a mobile phone antenna. The risk disappeared after taking down the antenna. We cannot accuse these creatures, sensitive to waves, of being hypochondriacs, as one wrongly judges “electrosensitive” persons.

Like animals and insects, these people suffer biological perturbations. However, we prefer to discard the idea that the waves emitted by the gadgets which please us and which are useful can one day lead to serious problems for our health and life in general, including the disappearance of pollinators (bees, birds, bats) on which depends a large part of our agriculture and hence, our food supply.

Doctors Caution Pregnant Women About Wireless Radiation Health Risks

Article on this declaration, followed by the text of the Joint Statement. 

Doctors Caution Pregnant Women About Wireless Radiation Health Risks
by PR NEWSWIRE, 1st July 2015

Over one hundred medical doctors and scientific experts from around the world agree: the risks of exposure to RF radiation from wireless devices for pregnant women and their unborn children are real, and women have a Right To Know.

NEW YORK, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- More than one hundred medical doctors, scientists and public health experts from around the world have signed a Joint Statement advising pregnant women to take simple precautions to protect themselves and their babies from wireless radiation. The Statement is part of a national right-to-know campaign called the BabySafe Project created by two non-profit organizations to inform pregnant women about the issue.

"The wireless world may be convenient, but it's not without risks," says Patricia Wood, Executive Director of Grassroots Environmental Education and co-creator of the BabySafe Project. "When more than one hundred of the world's leading medical doctors and researchers on wireless radiation say we have enough evidence for women to take protective action, we think women should know about it."

France: "I am 18 Years Old and Electrohypersensitive"

Mélody, electrohypersensitive
Toulouse:  The long, hard battle of Mélody, electrohypersensitive, to pass the baccalaureate
by Fabrice Valery, france3-regions,
26 June 2015 (translated from French by the Editor of this blog)

This is an unusual story:  Mélody, 18, diagnosed with electrohypersensitivity, suffers terribly from electromagnetic waves.  She is taking distance-learning courses and will take the baccalaureate (bac) L this year.  Not always easy.

She could be a student like any other, taking the bac in literature, at the Saint-Sernin high school test center in Toulouse.  But Mélody suffers from electrohypersensitivity and "benefits" (in theory) from accommodations to take these tests in conditions which keep her away from the electromagnetic waves that make her suffer so much.
