    Radiation from wireless technology elevates blood glucose and body temperature in 40-year-old type 1 diabetic male
    Catherine E. Kleiber

    ABSTRACT

    A type 1 diabetic male reports multiple instances when his blood glucose was dramatically elevated by the presence of microwave radiation from wireless technology and plummeted when the radiation exposure ended. In one instance, his body temperature elevated in addition to his blood glucose. Both remained elevated for nearly 48 h after exposure with the effect gradually decreasing. SNIP…

    Reykjavik Appeal on wireless technology in schools

    Abstract
    We, the signers, are concerned about our children’s health and development in schools with
    wireless technology for teaching.
    A vast amount of scientific studies have shown considerable medical risks with long-term exposure to Radiofrequency Radiation(RFR) from wireless devices and networks well below the recommended reference levels from the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection(ICNIRP).

    We ask the authorities to take their responsibility for our children’s future health and wellbeing.

    Krakow’s bold step to curb electromagnetic pollution reflects growing evidence of harm

    From the Ecologist

    Krakow’s bold step to curb electromagnetic pollution reflects growing evidence of harm
    Lynne Wycherley
    12th January 2017

    Excerpt

    As Kraków, Poland’s second city, takes steps to protect its citizens from rising electromagnetic ‘smog’ from mobile phones, wifi, Bluetooth, smart meters and other devices, Lynne Wycherley summarises 2016’s news highlights on the emerging bio-risks of rising exposure to non-ionisiong radiation. For how much longer can governments continue to ignore the growing evidence of harm?

    The first mayor of Kraków to be elected by popular ballot, law professor Jacek Majchrowski is tackling an environmental issue most governors avoid: the electromagnetic pollution in his city.

    Following work on air pollution, and in response to growing demand, he is initiating forums for citizens to discuss the growing ‘smog’ of electro-magnetic fields (EMFs).

    In a world first he is also initiating the provision of meters to detect radio-frequency (RF) / extremely low frequency (ELF) EMFs so people can collect objective data on their exposure….

    British bar installs Faraday cage to block phone signals / Cafe Thrives Without WiFi

    From www.thegeek.com

    By Matthew Humphries Aug. 3, 2016

    t’s becoming increasingly difficult to disconnect. The smartphone we all carry will usually find a signal, be it 3G, 4G, or WiFi meaning you’re always connected and able to receive messages, chat, or surf the web in your own insular bubble. Getting away from that is tough and most of us wouldn’t want to anyway, but one British bar is forcing the disconnect on its patrons.

    The Gin Tub cocktail bar in Hove is owned by Steve Tyler and he dislikes what the smartphone has done to social gatherings. So he decided to do something about it in his own bar by installing a Faraday cage that blocks all phone signals. The Gin Tub is a dead zone.

    Opinion piece: A response to the Demasi ABC Catalyst situation

    Excerpt

    From Mary Redmayne PhD

    Opinion piece: A response to the Demasi ABC Catalyst situation

    I am shocked with the way Dr Maryanne Demasi of Catalyst programme “Wi-Fried” has been treated. I am a researcher who has been working in the field of radiofrequencies and health for some years. My PhD thesis was titled Wireless phone use by young New Zealanders: Health and policy implications. This was followed by a post-doctoral fellowship at Monash University. I have many papers in the peer reviewed literature.
    The programme explored extremely important questions regarding health and safety and was, I believe, presented in a balanced way, as discussed below. While some of those interviewed were clearly extremely concerned, most of their comments were well handled. For instance, after Dr Davis showed an illustration of how far radiofrequencies can penetrate a child’s head, Dr Demasi reasonably enough showed surprise and asked, “Now, do we know that this translates into health effects for the child?” Dr Davis said, “No, we don’t ….”. Dr Demasi followed the response by explaining, accurately, that radiation exposure drops off exponentially with distance, distance matters. One comment from an interviewee I take issue with is Frank Clegg’s claim that the Standard in some countries is 100 times safer. The power density limit is indeed 100 times lower, but this does not necessarily translate into 100 times safer. SNIP- Read on

    A historical perspective on the Catalyst Wi-Fried program controversy

    With the current Media Watch attack on the Catalyst program Wi-Fried and calls for its producer Maryanne Demasi to be sacked, it is worthwhile to note that this is not the first time in Australia that such an attack has happened when questions on the safety of wireless technology have been raised.

    In this other case it was not a reporter or TV program but a senior CSIRO research scientist and his entire research department. Consider……

    In early 1994 the Spectrum Management Agency, forerunner of the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) commissioned the CSIRO’s Division of Radiophysics to undertake a comprehensive review of the available world-wide research on the biological effects of radiofrequency/microwave (RF/MW) exposure on the human body. Funding for the study came from the national carrier Telecom (later Telstra), and the carriers Optus and Vodafone and the resulting report was authored by Dr. Stan Barnett from CSIRO’s Ultrasonics Laboratory, Division of Radiophysics.

    ABC bows to “vested interests” pressure and retracts the Catalyst WI-Fried program and suspends producer

    Excerpt

    Bowing to a barrage of criticism, the ABC has retracted the Wi-Fried program that aired in February 2016 on ABC TV Australia, i.e. it has been removed from the website and it is no longer available.

    ABC has issued a statement on the website here:
    http://www.abc.net.au/catalyst/stories/4494933.htm

    On 16 February 2016, Catalyst aired ‘Wi-Fried?’, a program about the safety of wireless devices such as mobile phones.

    The ABC’s independent Audience & Consumer Affairs (A&CA) unit investigated complaints about the program and found that it breached the ABC’s impartiality standards by unduly favouring the unorthodox perspective that wireless devices and Wi-Fi pose significant health risks.

    “5G” Rollout Worries Wi-Fi Health Advocates

    “5G” Rollout Worries Wi-Fi Health Advocates
    By Jack O’Dwyer

    Excerpt

    FCC chair Tom Wheeler is pushing for adoption of 5G Wi-Fi router technology July 14 which need millions of mini cell towers potentially in every home and every room.

    Alarmed health advocates say Wheeler has provided no time for public comments or hearings. He described 5G at the National Press Club June 20, saying it is “a national priority.” It was not mentioned on the FCC main page.

    Smartgridawareness.org says high-frequency 5G signals travel much faster but over shorter distances and cannot easily penetrate walls.

    “That means thousands—perhaps millions—of mini cell towers, or ‘small cells’ would be needed on top of every lamp post, every building, inside every home and potentially every room,” it said.

    June 20 was celebrated as the inaugural “World Wi-Fi Day.”

    5G Is New “Global Platform”

    It will be “a global platform to recognize and celebrate the significant role Wi-Fi is playing in getting cities and communities around the world connected,” said Wheeler. “It will champion exciting and innovative solutions to help bridge the digital divide, with Connected City initiatives and new service launches at its core.”

    Smartgridawareness says “The drive towards 5G could make smart meter emissions look like almost nothing in comparison. We have no idea what the health consequences of 5G might be like but yet no one in industry or government seems concerned about that, not even a little bit.” SNIP

    Stop Untested Microwave Radiation of Children’s Brains and Eyes EHT Scientists Urge Google

    Excerpt

    From the Environmental Health Trust

    Excerpt

    Scientific imaging shows how children absorb radiation from Smartphones in Virtual reality cardboard positions.

    Environmental Health Trust (EHT) scientists are calling on Google to stop the spread into schools of wireless virtual reality system Global Expeditions Pioneer Program where middle-school children hold a cell phone encased in a cardboard box in front of their eyes to take virtual expeditions to Mars, the moon, and other special places.

    “Two-way microwave radiation transceivers, in the form of Smartphones, should not be used directly in front of children’s eyes and brains,” cautions University of Utah Distinguished Prof. Om Gandhi, who is one of the original developers of testing to evaluate wireless radiation from cellphones and is a Senior Advisor to EHT.

    Prof. Gandhi added, “We have never tested microwave radiating devices directly in front of the young developing eye. The absence of proof of harm at this point does not mean that we have evidence of safety.”
