It’s not going to matter if your child has been vaccinated for measles

“Parents, teachers and students should be furious about the overwhelming amount of coverage on vaccinations and yet not one word about the mandatory exposure to microwave radiation in our schools. It is a SCIENTIFIC FACT that this exposure causes many health effects, including cancers and other serious debilitating effects, like autism, Alzheimer’s, hormone problems, DNA damage, infertility, etc. The media is owned by the wireless industry and is forbidden to inform the public of the health risks because of the potential loss of revenue.

Our Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, Minister of Health, Adrian Dix, Premier, John Horgan and even Trudeau have refused to provide us with an official response to the 2018, current findings of the US National Toxicology Program and the supporting Ramazzini Institute Study who concluded there is “Clear Evidence of Carcinogenic Activity” and the association of cancer in the heart and brain and microwave radiation.

Parents, teachers and students have been told that microwave radiation, a known 2b carcinogen listed next to lead, DDT, methyl mercury, chloroform, and car exhaust, is an acceptable risk in our schools, so is Cancer an acceptable risk too?

It’s not going to matter if your child has been vaccinated for measles when they have a greater risk of developing a more serious health condition that will require brain surgery, chemo therapy, radiation treatment, etc.”

Clear Evidence of Cancer!

Dear Mr. Jepsen,
As a trustee that cares about the health and well being of the students in your district I hope you will be overwhelmed with the amount of  peer reviewed studies from scientists and medical experts showing "clear evidence" of cancer. 

Martin Pall PhD, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences, Washington State University, is only one of many highly regarded scientists that is pleading with Government Officials to protect our children from the mandatory exposure to microwave radiation.  This paper is an excellent summary of many peer-reviewed studies showing the health effects from this exposure.  https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0013935118300355

EMF Portal - Over 27,000 peer-reviewed studies by scientists and medical experts 
 
On March 26-29, 2018, the National Toxicology Program (NTP), a 10-year study costing the US 25 million dollars, had eleven experts review the reports from the NTP's cell phone radiation studies. They concluded that exposure to cell phone radiation caused a rare cancer, malignant schwannoma in the heart, and incidences of glioma, a rare, aggressive and highly malignant brain cancer.
 
Conclusions were based on NTP’s scale of “clear evidence”, “some evidence”, “equivocal evidence”, and “no evidence”. Clear Evidence being conclusive.

The Ramazzini Institute also completed the world's largest animal study on cell tower radiation and confirmed the findings of the National Toxicology Program link to Cancer

Wifi and EMF Studies showing harm (29 pages)

In January 1998, The Wingspread Conference held a three-day academic conference where the Precautionary Principle was defined. It was agreed the Precautionary Principle would be implemented when an activity raises threats of harm to human health or the environment, even if some cause and effect relationships are not fully established scientifically. The Precautionary Principle shifts the burden of proof, insisting that those responsible for an activity must vouch for its harmlessness and be held responsible if damage occurs. 
 
Why are our government officials ignoring the scientific facts and refusing to implement the Precautionary Principle to protect our children when there is an overwhelming amount of evidence proving harm?

Court Ordered to Turn Off WiFi at School in Florance

An Italian court ordered the government (Ministries of the Environment and Education) to launch a campaign to advise the public of the health risks from mobile and cordless phones.
https://microwavenews.com/short-takes-archive/italian-decision-precaution


And now the Court of Florence has ordered the immediate shutdown of Wi-Fi in a school to protect the health of a minor. The order was issued to the school manager of the Botticelli Comprehensive Institute.
As the lawyer Agata Tandoi, defender of the family of “Mario” (not the child’s real name to protect privacy) stresses, the emergency order is not a judgment but a preliminary act based on the existence of sufficient environmental barriers for the pupil.
The judge, in fact, ordered the dismantling of routers and hotspots well before the final verdict. The concern is that continued exposure can cause serious harm to the health of the child, being exposed to an electromagnetic soup at school. The protection of the health of a the child is a constitutional right.
In March a hearing was scheduled to discuss whether the shutdown of Wi-Fi will be temporary or final."

What the Wireless Industry is not telling you about the 5G Technology! Part 1

We should be extremely concerned about the 5G (fifth generation) technology needed to build Smart Cities or the Internet of Things (IoT) because to implement this plan the wireless industry will need to install thousands of small cell towers on electric utility poles in front of our homes, on public buildings and schools, on bus stop shelters, in public parks, etc.
This doesn’t mean the new 5G technology will replace the 2G, 3G and 4G layers of radiation that we are currently exposed to, but in addition the 5G frequency will use beams of microwaves to follow the user and the device, while emitting 10 times more power than 4G.
There has been absolutely no studies or testing for public safety and yet the launching of 20,000 satellites to orbit around the Earth to broadcast 5G microwave radiation over every square foot of ground on our planet has been approved and no living thing will be able to escape this exposure.  Does this sound like something the public has a right to know?

Michigan State Senator Says Acceptable Level of 5G Radiation Has Been Rigged by Telecom Industry and Is Huge Health Hazard
He is opposed to rolling out 5G technology because its high radiation levels can cause cancer and autism. Colbeck says the legal process for stopping 5G installations at the local level is rigged, because it relies entirely on safety standards set by the FCC, which now is staffed by former telecommunications insiders.

5G Licenced to Kill. The Insect Inspector investigates what you are not being told about the 5G grid
No tests have been run for potential damage to the environment - a failing that goes against the UN's Precautionary Principle. A risk analysis put in place after it was proved the asbestos and tobacco industries concealed known risks and dangers. Radiation levels will be100 times above the standards agreed 20 years ago. 5G safety standards are unfit for purpose.

WiFi safety in schools -- your email to Janis Hoffmann

Dear Tamara,
As did the BC Liberals, members of the current NDP/Green coalition do not appear to take seriously the threat to the health of all all living beings posed by the use of wireless devices in the world today.  To continue to ignore the reproducible research conclusions of scientists most knowledgeable of the dangers and health effects of wireless technology is inexcusible, no matter how much the misinformed continue believing Health Canada's Safety Code 6 keeps them "safe". 

I invite you and your colleagues to also perform the "10 minute cellphone test" as described in the third paragraph of my email to Dr. Bonnie Henry (below).  Perhaps if all politicians did this, some real legislative action would be taken to remove WiFi in schools and "smart" meters from the electrical grid.  Without such action the burden of decreasing health of citizenry exposed to wireless radiation will become more evident, and the politicians responsible for ignoring the many warnings (from the best scientists studying wireless dangers) will perhaps finally realize how wrong they were in not taking the valid health concerns of EHS affected  and other citizens more seriously.

Sincerely,
XX

Dear Dr. Henry,

As you should know, true science is based on facts, not consensus.  While you, your predecessor and other political bureaucrats continue to express ignorance concerning the latest research on the DNA damaging effects of non-ionizing radiation on biological systems, none of you even seem to recognize the fact that the dangers to human health of such radiation have been documented for more than 50 years.  Bombarding children's bodies billions of times per second to pulsed microwaves while exposed to school WiFi is ridiculous considering the known science.  Even more ridiculous has been the fascist implementation of "smart" meters in this and other countries.  Replacing safe and reliable long lasting glass and metal analog ("Legacy" meters) with a combustible piece of plastic and wireless computer circuitry ("smart"??)  is even more insane.

Just because Health Canada's Safety Code 6 provides guidelines to protect one from overheating, it does absolutely nothing to protect one from the cumulative damage to health caused by today's wireless devices emitting pulsed microwave radiation.  Even though you state "Safety Code 6 is designed to protect all age groups including children on a continuous basis and considers cumulative exposure to electromagnetic fields", you must realize that the "weight of evidence" procedure used by Health Canada also ignored much of the peer reviewed science evidencing biological harm from non-thermal exposures.  This is why a large number of researchers made known their objections and label Safety Code 6 as 30 years obsolete and providing no protection from biological damage, particularly with respect to young children and pregnant women.  No one except the misinformed have ever stated wireless is "safe".

No insurer will provide cover for liability arising from exposure to electromagnetic radiation.  Those in the wireless industry know of the dangers, and much like those in the tobacco industry once did, fund unethical researchers to produce studies with the results they want.  Funding is reduced and even withdrawn for research producing results they do not want to see.  Look up Dr. Henry Lai and the "war gaming" he and others have experienced. By continuing with "the more studies are needed" mantra the wireless industry continues reaping massive profit from the "blissfully ignorant" who seem satisfied using the latest "smart" device on their road to declining health and future misery.

I tried your link to BCCDC and it seems to be outdated.  Your link to the statement from Dr. Kendall is even more useless (401 error) as the page no longer exists.

In my opinion, the last paragraph of your email is just more rubbish.  To continue on with the "more research needed" and "scientific consensus" arguments is political, and has nothing to do with real science.  I suspect persons such as yourself would be doing more to protect the health of citizens if you microscopically examined your blood cells before using a cellphone beside your head for 10 minutes and then took another blood sample and saw the change.  Maybe then you will personally observe the reality that pulsed microwave radiation really does interact negatively with natural cell health, and with that new first hand knowledge (true science) take some real action to inform others rather than repeating how protective Safety Code 6 is for everyone.  Please let me know what your "real science" test result is so I can compare it to "consensus science".

I find it absolutely appalling that so many people and organizations still stubbornly remain blind to the proven threats to human health from exposure to microwave radiation.

Sincerely,

Parents, teachers and students want to know if Cancer is an acceptable risk?

Dear Deputy Minister Stephen Brown,
We would like an investigation as to:

-       - Why the Ministry of Health, Adrian Dix and the Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry has put our correspondence on a FYI list of  “frequent writers” giving them option NOT to respond to any of our emails? See FOI attached

-       - Why they listed one of the subject matters as Monsanto?

-       - Why our Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, has refused to provide us with an official response to the 2018, current findings of the US National Toxicology Program and the supporting Ramazzini Institute Study who concluded there is “Clear Evidence of Carcinogenic Activity” and the association of cancer in the heart and brain and cell phone radiation?

-       - Why they have ignored more than 27,000 studies that confirm that exposure to RF/EMF is associated with many health effects, including cancers and other serious debilitating effects, like autism, Alzheimer’s, hormone problems, DNA damage, fertility, etc.? 

-       - Why Dr. Bonnie Henry relies on Dr. Kosatsky who appears to have no educational background in the biological effects from RF radiation to advise her on the safety of Wi-Fi in our schools. Dr. Kosatsky stated, “ while I am not a cancer epidemiologist, nor a specialist in the health effects of non-ionizing radiation”?

-      - Why they rely on the advise of the BC Cancer Agency when this agency clearly have a vested interest in supporting the wireless industry in return for millions of dollars in donations?

-       - Why we have not been provided us with a copy of these studies and the recent publications that they recently "reviewed" along with the names of the scientists and medical experts?

-       - Why they keep quoting Safety Code 6 when we all know there are no regulations put in place for non-ionizing radiation?

-       - Why Dr. Bonnie Henry states that “. . . and we continue to recommend people make personal choices to reduce their exposure.” How can parents make a Personal Choice to protect their children when microwave radiation exposure is mandatory in all our public schools?

-       - Why a known 2b carcinogen listed next to lead, DDT, methyl mercury, chloroform, and car exhaust is an acceptable risk in our schools? 

-        - We want to know is Cancer an acceptable risk too?

Our Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, and the Ministry of Health, Adrian Dix, has failed to do their due diligence and take immediate action to mitigate the risk by informing the School Boards throughout the province of the established health risks associated with long-term exposure to microwave radiation by recommending the use of hard-wired connections to access the Internet in our schools. For as little as a one time cost of $500 US dollars every classroom would be provided with 40 Ethernet ports plus adapters for their wireless devices, costing about $20 per child, a small price to pay compared to brain surgery, chemotherapy, radiation treatments etc. http://octowired.com/

We are hoping for a timely response.

Dear John Horgan and Adrian Dix
We are appalled that Dr. Bonnie Henry felt a regurgitated form letter from Kendall’s library of lies and deception was good enough to send to a large group of parents, teachers and students who are concerned about the current proven health risks to our children from the mandatory exposure to microwave radiation exposure in our schools.  Dr. Kendall disregarded and minimized thousands of peer-reviewed studies, providing proof of cancer, DNA damage, protein synthesis, stress response, and detrimental biological and health effects in humans that occur at radiation levels far below the existing Safety Code 6 Guideline.

Dr. Kendall was unable to provide the parents with even ONE peer reviewed study by a scientist or medical expert stating “exposure to microwave radiation is safe for children and the unborn.” The link Dr. Henry provided to Dr. Kendall's information is dead.

Dr. Stanwick, our School Health Officer, has endorsed the installation of a known 2b carcinogen listed next to lead, DDT, methyl mercury, chloroform, and car exhaust as an acceptable risk in our schools.  We want to know is Cancer an acceptable risk too?

Dr. Bonnie Henry stated in her recent email that, she along with my colleagues across the country, continue to monitor the science around electromagnetic fields and have reviewed the recent publications with scientists at the BCCDC and the BC Cancer Agency.  We are requesting a copy of these studies and the recent publications that were recently "reviewed" along with the names of the scientists and medical experts who stated microwave radiation exposure is safe.

We want to know how can Dr. Bonnie Henry even consider using the BC Cancer Agency for a reference for Wi-Fi safety in our schools when they clearly they have a vested interest in supporting the wireless industry in return for millions of dollars in donations? Telus, Glentel and BC Hydro are long time supporters of this organization.

This scandalous report shows just how reputable this organization is. CEO, Dr. Max Coppes from The BC Cancer Agency receives $561,000 in salary, while they celebrate volunteers, working for free, to raise money! 

In 2013, almost 6 years ago, the BC Center for Disease Control, cautioned in their 400 page report on RF/EMR that their findings are consistent with many international experts who continue to warn that prolonged exposure to low levels of microwave radio frequency radiation from wireless devices that include wi-fi, ipads, cell phones, cordless phones and smart meters, can lead to serious health effects such as infertility and cancer, children especially at risk. 
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1I6PMTOkSZL-OcdXmU0Q-M35IdU6vAqmn

We are aware Health Canada administers the Radiation Emitting Devices Act which governs the sale, lease, and importation of radiation emitting devices does NOT have any regulations in place to protect the public from long-term exposure to the biological effects of the “non-thermal” levels of microwave radiation.  In 2013, in the Superior Court of Quebec, James McNamee, scientist for Health Canada, admitted that the Safety Code 6 guideline for microwave radiation emitting from wireless technology is based ONLY on thermal effects, heating of the skin.

On page 3, inside the Safety Code 6 document it states, “These guidelines apply to all individuals working at, or visiting, federally regulated sites and may also be adopted by the provinces, industry or other interested parties.” Schools are not federally regulated sites and, therefore, SC 6 does not apply to wifi in schools. The fact that the provinces may Adopt SC 6 means that the provinces are free to set their own guidelines.
http://www.radiationsafety.ca/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Safety-Code-6.pdf
 
Dr. Bonnie Henry states that “. . . and we continue to recommend people make personal choices to reduce their exposure.” How can parents make a Personal Choice to protect their children when microwave radiation exposure is mandatory 6 hours a day 5 days a week in all our public schools and 24/7 in hospitals?

Our Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, has failed to provide us with an official response to the 2018, current findings of the US National Toxicology Program and the supporting Ramazzini Institute Study along with over 27,000 peer reviewed studies that confirmed the link to Cancer from Microwave Radiation Exposure.

Canada agreed the Precautionary Principle would be implemented when an activity raises threats of harm to human health or the environment, even if some cause and effect relationships are not fully established scientifically. The Precautionary Principle shifts the burden of proof, insisting that those responsible for an activity must vouch for its harmlessness and be held responsible if damage occurs. http://sehn.org/wingspread-conference-on-the-precautionary-principle/

Health is a Provincial Jurisdiction. You have an obligation and a duty to protect our children by taking the reasonable steps to reduce wireless radiation in our schools immediately given the overwhelming amount of evidence of harm.

Dear Janice Hoffmann:

I am responding to a number of emails and letters you have sent in the last few months. I am aware that you have had several responses from my predecessor Dr. Kendall and from staff at the Ministry of Health on this issue. The Honourable Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, asked that I respond on his behalf.

As you are aware Health Canada administers the Radiation Emitting Devices Act which governs the sale, lease, and importation of radiation emitting devices. The agency has a mandate to carry out research into possible human effects, monitor scientific literature, and develop recommended human health exposure guidelines. Health Canada’s Safety Code 6 sets out recommended limits for safe human exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF). Safety Code 6 is designed to protect all age groups including children on a continuous basis and considers cumulative exposure to electromagnetic fields.
In British Columbia, the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) also provides information regarding the human health effects of electro-magnetic exposures. This information can be found at: http://www.bccdc.ca/health-info/health-your-environment/electro-magnetic-exposures.   


In my role as Provincial Health Officer I, along with my colleagues across the country, continue to monitor the science around electromagnetic fields and have reviewed the recent publications with scientists at the BCCDC and the BC Cancer Agency. There continues to be more research needed around cellphone use and cancer and we continue to recommend people make personal choices to reduce their exposure. The scientific consensus, however, continues to support there is no evidence that exposure to wifi and smart metres and other devices which use radiofrequency transmission at current exposure levels poses a threat to health of children or adults in BC. The statement above remains the position of my office on this issue.

Dear Dr. Bonnie Henry,
We request that the BC Provincial Health Officer provide the public with an official response to the findings of the US National Toxicology Program Expert Panel who concluded that there is “Clear Evidence of Carcinogenic Activity” and the association of cancer in the heart and brain and cell phone radiation. This is serious health and safety matter that will cause permanent damage to thousands of children in all our public schools. Currently it is mandatory that our children be exposed RF Microwave Radiation with no way to shield themselves from this full body radiation, much like the rats used in this study.

Parents have been robbed of their right to decide if this chronic exposure, an established 2B carcinogen listed next to lead, DDT, methyl mercury, chloroform, and car exhaust is an acceptable risk or whether precautionary measures should be implemented given there is alternative simple solution.

More and more schools are applying a 'No cell phone' policy during school hours due to distractions that negatively impact learning. This has made a huge impact on the reduction of radiation exposure our children are experiencing in our classrooms. However, the removal of the industrial strength Wi-Fi routers should implemented immediately and return to hard-wired Internet, which is faster, cheaper, more reliable, more secure and safer than wireless networks.

For as little as a one time cost of $500 US dollars every classroom would be provided with 40 Ethernet ports plus adapters for their wireless devices, costing about $20 per child, a small price to pay compared to brain surgery, chemotherapy, radiation treatments etc.

As the Provincial Health Office you have a duty to take reasonable steps to reduce wireless radiation in our schools given the overwhelming amount of evidence of harm that concerned parents have submitted.

Parents, teachers and students want to know why the BC Provincial Health Officer has not done her due diligence and informed the School Boards about the health risks

Dear Dr. Bonnie Henry,
Parents, teachers and students want to know why the BC Provincial Health Officer has not done her due diligence and informed the School Boards about the health risks from the prolonged and accumulative exposure to RF radiation emitting from wireless technology in our schools. 

On March 26-29, 2018, the National Toxicology Program (NTP), a 10-year study costing the US 25 million dollars, had eleven experts review the reports from the NTP's cell phone radiation studies. They concluded that exposure to cell phone radiation caused a rare cancer, malignant schwannoma in the heart, and incidences of glioma, a rare, aggressive and highly malignant brain cancer.
https://ehtrust.org/cell-phone-radiofrequency-radiation-study/
 
Conclusions were based on NTP’s scale of “clear evidence”, “some evidence”, “equivocal evidence”, and “no evidence”. Clear Evidence being conclusive.


 
"The evidence indicating wireless is carcinogenic has increased and can no longer be ignored,"stated University of Toronto Dalla Lana School of Public Health Professor Emeritus Anthony B. Miller MD, Member of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of Canada and the UK, and Senior Medical Advisor to EHT who is also a long-term advisor to the World Health Organization. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=5&v=bgGJeOVEdQs
 
Soon after, the Ramazzini Institute also completed the world's largest animal study on cell tower radiation and confirmed the findings of the National Toxicology Program link to Cancer. This information accompanied with the over 26,000 peer reviewed studies by scientists and medical experts https://www.emf-portal.org/en is more than enough evidence for you to apply the precautionary principal to protect our children. http://www.sbwire.com/press-releases/worlds- largest-animal-study-on-cell-tower-radiation-confirms-cancer-link-953696.htm 

In January 1998, The Wingspread Conference held a three-day academic conference where the Precautionary Principle was defined. It was agreed the Precautionary Principle would be implemented when an activity raises threats of harm to human health or the environment, even if some cause and effect relationships are not fully established scientifically. The Precautionary Principle shifts the burden of proof, insisting that those responsible for an activity must vouch for its harmlessness and be held responsible if damage occurs. http://sehn.org/wingspread-conference-on-the-precautionary-principle/
 
Health is a Provincial Jurisdiction. Your duty and obligation as the Provincial Health Officer and as a Doctor is to implement the Precautionary Principle by honouring your Hippocratic Oath, “nil nocere” to do no harm and protect our children from this health crisis. 
 
All schools now employ industrial wireless networks, exposing students and staff to ubiquitous microwave radiation without any way to shield or avoid this mandatory exposure. Parents have never been informed of the health risks or given their written consent to expose their children to microwave radiation in our schools. School Districts have refused to educate students, parents and staff on how to avoid excessive RFR exposure when handling wireless devices during class time as outlined in user manuals, requirements mandated by law. 

Vancouver Island School Boards have shifted the responsibility of potential lawsuits caused by this wireless technology to their School Medical Health Officer, Dr. Stanwick, who has endorsed the installation of a known 2b carcinogen in our schools and is unable to provide parents with any peer reviewed studies stating the safety of radiation exposure. Dr. Stanwick then shifted “the responsibility for professional oversight” to the Provincial Health Officer. 

The BC Ministry of Education has stated they set educational standards, allocates funds and monitors student achievement but decisions regarding the planning and delivery of supports and services for all students are the responsibility of local boards of education and school district administrators. This includes decisions around exposure to RF frequencies and the use of WiFi in the classroom setting. 

The Health Minister Philpott was also unable to provide parents with peer reviewed studies stating the safety of Wifi safety in our schools and has instead relied on Health Canada’s Safety Code 6 exposure “guidelines.” 

But on February 20, 2013, James McNamee, scientist for Health Canada, admitted in the Superior Court of Quebec, that the Safety Code 6 guideline for microwave radiation emitting from wireless technology is based ONLY on thermal effects, heating of the skin. This means Canada does not have any regulations in place to protect the public from long-term exposure to the biological effects of the “non-thermal” levels of microwave radiation. http://www.magdahavas.com/health-canada-admits-safety-code-6-guideline-for-microwave- radiation-is-based-only-on-thermal-effects/ 

On page 3, inside the Safety Code 6 document it states, “These guidelines apply to all individuals working at, or visiting, federally regulated sites and may also be adopted by the provinces, industry or other interested parties.” Schools are not federally regulated sites and, therefore, SC 6 does not apply to wifi in schools. The fact that the provinces may Adopt SC 6 means that the provinces are free to set their own guidelines.

In a report by Dr. Martin Pall he discusses Ken Foster and John Moulder, 2 industry affiliated scientists who, for years, have argued that there is no evidence of harm from exposure to microwave radiation. These 2 “bent” scientists have been on Health Canada panels and reviewed Safety Code 6, stating it is protective of non-thermal effects, when it applies to thermal effects only. On page 412 (8 of 12) he explains how they use poor science to help support wifi in schools, cell phones, etc

Tim Singer from Health Canada responded to a letter concerning the radiation levels in our schools by stating, Health Canada is aware of concerns related to Wi-Fi in schools, such decisions are not within Health Canada’s mandate. We recommend that you continue to consult your local school board or provincial authority to discuss your concerns. 

The finger pointing has now gone full circle and it is obvious that Provincial Health Officer will be held accountable for willfully ignoring the overwhelming amount of scientific proof of harm. 

Parents want to exercise their right to protect their children from harm and are calling on you to take immediate action to mitigate the risk and inform the School Boards throughout the province of the established health risks associated with long term exposure to microwave radiation by recommending the use of hard wired connections to access the Internet in our schools. 

The burden of proof should not be put upon the public to prove that it’s unsafe, but upon the industry to prove it is safe. 

Sincerely,
