    Parent’s success in stopping WiFI installation at Australian school

    The following was written by a mother who took action to inform her child’s school on EMR health issues specific to children. This action resulted in the school enacting an EMR precautionary policy.




    An Australian mum has been successful in preventing installation of WiFi at her child’s school and has worked with the school in drafting EMR precautionary measures by requesting compliance with the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and Article 9: Accessibility from the Conventions on the Rights of the Disabled to accommodate her child’s functional impairment.

    She stated “My child has a sensitivity to EMR, specifically WiFi and Bluetooth elicit symptoms.” The school environment was very good already, to change that by installing WiFi would exclude the child’s access to the school. The first step she took was to register a compliment/complaint/ feedback form on the Dept of Education’s website she said. “I requested help to find a WiFi- free high school and stated my child’s health complaints and symptoms. Rather than sending an email which could get “lost” in the system, I chose to use the education department’s processes for registering my complaint regarding accessibility to schools.” Around the same time, the child’s school initiated the WiFi installation discussion again. This quickly led to further conversations with the school and district education officers covering both accessibility issues……

    Here we go again: Science and Wireless Spin 2015

    Playing to the well-worn retro tune of ‘thermoregulatory effects only’ the usual band of thermalists are hosting another so called Science and Wireless conference in Melbourne this year. And to top it all off we have the panel discussion chaired by none other than the eminent Professor Michael Repacholi. Expect the usual whirling dervish spin from this group. Why don’t they ever invite people such as Lennart Hardell to present? The answer to that is obvious.

    Oh! And as for the topic of electrosensitivity expect the answer to be that its all just a psychosomatic disorder by needlessly worrying people.

    Nothing new here….just more Procrustean bullshit.

    Professor Martin Pall’s research on non-thermal bio-effects

    From Peter Tomkinson

    Your readers should be aware of the research reported by Professor Martin L. Pall formerly of Washington State University? He has demonstrated that without temperature change, through the Voltage Gate Calcium Channel (VGCC) it is possible for electrical energy to alter the intracellular calcium levels with potentially devastating health effects.

    In particular this occurs across the plasma membrane and demonstrates clearly that electrical effects can and do activate Ca2+ meaning that chemical effects result directly from electrical stimulus. Ca2+ levels within cells apparently play a critical role in human health, plants too it seems (same mechanism although 2 instead of the 4 that humans have).

    Professor Pall noted that it has been known and accepted for more than 40 years that Pulsed Fields are more Bio-Active than non-pulsed and his study showed that pulsed electrical energy does affect cells in non-thermal conditions. So much for the fraudulent claims of regulators and the industry.

    ALL our WiFi, Cellphones, Cordless DECT telephones, Radio Baby monitors, Smart Meters and the like have a very real potential to do massive and possibly irreversible harm to biological entities such as humans.

    Aust. Conference: Wireless Devices: Risk, Regulation, Compliance and Liability

    This conference takes place at the University of New South Wales (Australia) on 14 October 2015. There is a good line up of speakers (below). Unfortunately I will not be able to attend but I highly recommend attending for those who can make it. With the rapid roll-out of WiFi, smart meters, NBN towers, The Internet of Things, etc., etc., based on suspect health science (Hi Dr. Karl), the legal implications are a potential “Pandora’s Box” for the industry and government. An event not to be missed!

    Conference: Wireless Technology and Public Health: Health and Environmental Hazards in a Wireless World

    Wireless Technology and Public Health: Health and Environmental Hazards in a Wireless World

    Saturday, October 10, 2015 | 9AM – 1PM
    Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts
    500 Castro Street, Mountain View, CA 94041
    Sponsor: Santa Clara County Medical Alliance Foundation

    Are wireless devices making us ill?

    Join Dr. Joel Moskowitz, Director of the Center for Family and Community Health, U.C. Berkeley School of Public Health, and seven other experts to learn about the current scientific research regarding electromagnetic frequencies and their impact on biological systems. We will hear why 200 international scientists recently called for safer wireless radiation standards.

    Panelists will discuss links to autism, cancer, infertility, effects on wildlife,as well as best practices with cell phone safety and wi-fi precautions.

    Dr. Christopher Portier, Fmr. Director of the US CDC, calls for invoking the Precautionary Principle for RF-EMF

    From Dariusz Leszczynski’s blog:


    Recently, the draft program of the forthcoming BioEM2015 was published. One of the most important opinions, presented in the program, is that on the Precautionary Principle by Dr. Christopher Portier.

    I fully agree with Chris’ opinion as presented in abstract of his forthcoming talk [bold red text by DL]:


    The Precautionary Principle Should be Invoked for RF-EMF

    Christopher Portier; Research Consultant, Thun, Switzerland

    Biographical sketch

    Dr. Portier is an expert in the design, analysis, and interpretation of environmental health data and has contributed to the development of national and international risk assessment guidelines. He has directed or contributed significantly to numerous scientific reviews including those for dioxins, aflatoxins, electromagnetic fields, diesel particle emissions and climate change. Dr. Portier has served on US NAS committees, has served on USEPA’s Science Advisory Board and USEPA’s Science Advisory Panel, and numerous other scientific committees. He has received numerous awards including the Spiegelman Award from the APHA and the Outstanding Practitioner of the Year Award from the International Society for Risk Analysis. Until 2013, Dr. Portier was the Director of the US National Center for Environmental Health and the US Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry. Prior to CDC, Dr. Portier was the NIEHS Associate Director and Associate Director of the National Toxicology Program and has over 250 scientific publications.

    ICNIRP continues with its Procrustean Approach…keep it on thermal effects only and ignore the rest

    The charade continues….
    ICNIRP/WHO Workshop “A closer look at the thresholds of thermal damage”, 26-28 May 2015

    Scope: In view of updating the guidance on limiting exposure to high frequency (HF) fields, ICNIRP will review the current scientific knowledge on the thresholds of thermal damage. The current workshop will revisit the ICNIRP 1998 concept, namely that the health relevant increase of body core temperature is approximately 1° C and a whole-body exposure with an average SAR of 4 W/kg result in a core temperature increase of less than 1°C within 30 min. Details of this concept as well as thresholds for partial/local body exposures are subjects to review. SNIP

    Nov. 12, 2014, 12:30 – 14:00, Wollongong University, Wollongong, NSW
    Nov. 17, 2014, 15:00 – 16:00, Monash University, Melbourne, VIC
