“When that tower went up, he ended up losing his animals little by little,” … “While domestic birds sang and a rooster crowed in the background”….a litany of deaths on the farm…”a dog staggering around and then keeling over, and ….a goat suddenly dying from a seizure. Four years ago, a horse fell over on its side, never to recover.”
“How many animals have died?”
“You couldn’t count them,”….”Over the winter, …a large truck box with the bodies of rabbits and birds.”
“It’s the latter that’s attracted the attention of the province’s Natural Resources Department. Upon hearing of robins, finches and other song birds dying at the property, department officials requested that the farm owner send an animal for testing to the Atlantic Veterinary College in Charlottetown.”
“College vets will conduct tests on a guinea pig that died at the farm, but it could be weeks before they have answers.”

The largest study ever done on wireless safety, which involved over 220 scientists around the world, demonstrated clinical evidence of double strand DNA breakage caused by…..proved double strand DNA breakage along with altered gene mutation as well. … Swedish neurologist … who has been doing research studies for over 15 years, has verbalized about , “This is the largest human biological experiment in the history of civilization”.
….a highly respected scientist, found shocking penetration rates of radiation in children as compared to adults. These differences in exposure signify potentially serious health risks for children in the area of cancer, genetic damage, disruptions of cellular, immune and nervous system functions. Scientists say that the thickness of the skull in children makes a difference. It is quite thin compared with adults, and there is more brain fluid – which means that the radio frequencies can travel through the brain more easily .

HOW DO THEY WORK?
Everyone who uses wireless devices or spends time in areas where other people use wireless technology needs intervention. Radio waves coming from these devices trigger responses that lead to effects ranging from anxiety disorders, learning problems, and electrosensitivity to immunological deficiencies and cancer.
Doctors have told us that the MRET and ERT technologies are a very effective combined intervention because MRET emits a field that prevents biological tissue from reacting. ERT minimizes the symptoms by restoring cellular communication. This combined intervention represents the most efficient means of controlling this radio wave damage available anywhere in the world.

Ipods could make your heart Skip a Beat
“…portable music players caused pacemakers to malfunction in 50 percent of patients”
“…the biggest concern is that pacemakers store the history of a heart’s rhythms”…”If a physician was to go back and look at that (history), the physician might think that the patient was having abnormal heart rhythms,”…..One danger is that heart patients might be treated for conditions that aren’t really present… if an iPod stopped a pacemaker from working in a patient who was totally dependent on their pacemaker, it could cause the heart to stop…”
“Many electric devices — such as cell phones, appliances, microwave ovens and high tension wires — can produce the same effect”… “doctors tell their patients not to put any electric device over their pacemaker.”
…”telemetry interference” occurred in 29 percent of the patients, and “over sensing” (a pacemaker misreading the heart’s function) occurred in 20 percent of patients. In one patient, the pacemaker stopped working. In some cases, interference was detected even when the iPods were held as far as 18 inches from the chest…..”people with pacemakers need to be aware of the risk..”
“People commonly strap their iPod to the arm right next to their pacemaker or put it in a shirt pocket. There are quite a few situations where they come in proximity to the pacemaker”…”
“… a cardiac electrophysiologist… agrees that iPods can be a danger to patients with pacemakers….iPods can affect pacing function,” …”There is a possibility for a severe reaction, such as loss of consciousness.”
… “Patients with a pacemaker could safely use an iPod, just don’t put it over the device,”….iPods could also pose a problem for patients with implanted pacemaker defibrillators, …”The possibility would be there for inappropriate shock,”… “shocks are quite painful and traumatic for patients.”
“Effects of 900 MHz electromagnetic field on TSH and thyroid hormones in rats.”
“In this study, the effects of exposure to a 900 megahertz (MHz) electromagnetic field (EMF) on serum thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and triiodothronine-thyroxin (T3-T4) hormones levels of adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were studied.”….”TSH values and T3-T4 at the 900 MHz EMF group were significantly lower than the sham-exposed group (p<0.01). There were no statistically significant differences in serum TSH values and T3-T4 hormone concentrations between the control and the sham-exposed group (p>0.05). These results indicate that 900 MHz EMF emitted by cellular telephones decrease serum TSH and T3-T4 levels.”

Do you use a machine to help you sleep?
You may be exposing yourself to increased pulsed radiation.
“…any machine that is operational will be putting forth a magnetic field. Considering the fact that both the cpap and bipap are strictly to insure respiration makes them a higher priority for health than the EMFs. Thus the only consideration is to convert the MF to a less invasive form. There are several devices that can be applied to these and any other electrical devices to decrease the effects of the EMFs. If that suggestion does not fall completely within your level of acceptability you might try to convince the manufacturers to come with a longer hose in order to create a greater distance from the actual pump.”

|“Staff at computer factories could be at increased risk of contracting cancer because of working environments containing high levels of chemicals, metals and electromagnetic fields, according to a new study.”
“In what is the largest study of its kind, the findings focus on upwards of 30,000 deaths of members of staff at factories in the US since 1969.”
“The study by the Boston University School of Public Health in the US, published in the science journal Environmental Health, analysed the causes of death for 31,941 IBM workers and compared them with causes of death among the American population during this period. The information was obtained from IBM as part of a California lawsuit against the firm. The results of the study indicate there was increased mortality due to several types of cancer, especially in manufacturing workers and workers at particular plants in California, Minnesota, New York, and Vermont. Most notably, there was an excess of deaths due to cancer of the brain and central nervous system.”
“Richard Clapp, from Boston University School of Public Health, said: “It was not possible to link these deaths to specific chemicals or other exposures in the workplace because the information necessary to do this was not available.”
“The research appears to back up previous, smaller studies and highlights clear health risks for workers in computer factories. Among these was the Health and Safety Executive’s initial 2001 study of 4000 people at National Semiconductor, which showed statistically significant excesses of lung, stomach, and breast cancers among women and an excess of brain cancer among men, with some rates four or five times higher than average.”
“The HSE said it had received “ethical approval” to begin a new study at Greenock. Announced last June, and planning to look at various cases of cancer in more detail, it has been subject to significant delays. Professor Andrew Watterson, of Stirling University’s occupational, environmental and public health group, said: “The US study confirms some of the evidence we have seen at Nat Semi. The families of former Nat Semi workers have been calling for years for a Europe-wide or international study into the industry, and this is the next best thing.”
“Jim McCourt, of Phase Two, a support group for Nat Semi workers, said: “We’ve no doubt working in Nat Semi is dangerous. The scale of this study shows the industry has a real problem, and we would call on the HSE to initiate a UK-wide study.”

[There]..” is a website dedicated to a international community of people suffering adverse health effects from masts and antennas in the vicinity of their homes.
If you are a victim of mast radiation or strongly concerned about the issue, please write your story and share your thoughts on this website! Please click on “Tell your story” in the left hand menu and create an online case history file. You don’t need to register with this website to participate and no personal information will be recorded. You only give out as much information as you wish to.
You can also email your story to us at: email@example.com and we will put it online.
The purpose of this website is to bring together people from all over the world that have become victims of insensitive mast and antenna siting. Telecommunications companies are drowning us in radiation and they are in a state of complete denial on whether these masts and antennas have any negative health impact on the population. Credible scientific research shows that especially mobile phone mast radiation is harmful and people are suffering. Some people have even been forced to abandon their homes after becoming ill from radiation.
This has got to change. So far only few people have come forward against the telecommunication industry and those who have deserve to be known and heard.
http://www.mast-victims.org is built as a community where people living under the threat of masts and antennas can record their case histories and share their thoughts online.”

The controversy goes back to a study by Lai and Singh published in a 1995 issue of Bioelectromagnetics. They found an increase in damaged DNA in the brain cells of rats after a single two-hour exposure to microwave radiation at levels considered “safe” by government standards….
…The idea behind that study was relatively simple: expose rats to microwave radiation similar to that emitted by cell phones, then examine their brain cells to see if any DNA damage resulted. Such damage is worrisome because DNA carries the body’s genetic code and breaks, if not repaired properly, could lead to mutations and even cancer….
…”I don’t believe any of those studies have ever been replicated,” …says..a consortium that provides $1 million a year in funding for cell phone research….More recently, a European research effort by 12 groups in seven countries also documented DNA damage from cell phone radiation.”
“….there is “cause for concern” and more work needs to be done. Instead, Lai says, he and his colleague have been the focus of a campaign to discredit their research. Consider:
- Internal documents from Motorola in the 1990s point to an organized plan to “war-game” Lai’s work.
- When a scientist in California published results that seemed to support Lai’s findings, he lost research funding and eventually left the field.
- At one point, the director of a group created to manage $25 million in industry-donated research money sent a memo to then-UW President Richard McCormick saying that Lai and Singh should be fired.
- Federal money for scientific investigation in the field has dried up, supplanted by funding from the industry-funding that Lai and others say can come with restrictions so oppressive they hamper scientific inquiry.
The stakes, both in terms of potential ramifications and profits, are high. According to consulting firm Deloitte & Touche, the global wireless market is expected to grow to two billion subscribers by the end of this year. An overall dollar figure for the industry would easily be in the hundreds of billions, according to Louis Slesin, who as editor of Microwave News has followed the ins and outs of research in the field of bioelectromagnetics for more than 20 years.”

Thought-Styles….there are two fundamentally different approaches to doing science in the 1990s – two distinct scientific thought-styles. In the physical thought-style, the goal is to explain an observation by showing that it is compelled by basic physical laws or at least by phenomenological equations. In this thought-style, a scientific fact is a deduction from a relevant covering law made in the context of particular assumptions. The concept of causality does not occupy a central position in the physical thought-style because the necessary and sufficient cause of the observation to be explained – a force – is known in advance of the explanation.
In contrast, in the biological thought-style, the goal is to establish a scientific fact. In this thought-style, a scientific fact is a but-for cause of an observation established using orthodox measurement methods and appropriate statistical techniques. In the biological thought-style, covering laws are not employed and linkage with covering laws, even in principle, is not required as a precondition for accepting observations as valid. Scientific facts are generalizations that admit of exceptions.
… two distinct thought-styles were utilized to produce scientific facts applies equally well to all subsequently published issues of Science that I have considered…each report in any issue of Science that involves formal reasoning can be classified into one (or a combination) of the thought-styles described here. It can permissibly be concluded, therefore that there presently exist two distinct valid methods for producing scientific knowledge. Consequently, the scientific facts of the physicist and the biologist are fundamentally different objects. This analysis makes clear – I think for the first time – that there presently are two distinct pathways by which observations can rise to the level of scientific fact…. failure to distinguish between the thought-styles and to identify the applicable thought-style accounts, in part, for the present controversy regarding whether powerline EMFs affect human health.
It’s not either/or, folks. We need to put our heads together.
