Sobering statistics - Testicular and breast cancer

Violation of Its Cell Phone Microwave Radiation Exposure Limit
The inquiry letter to the FCC from Swankin & Turner in Washington, D.C. was sent September 9, 2016 on behalf of the National Institute for Science, Law & Public Policy (NISLAPP) and the Environmental Health Trust (EHT). Now four months later, the FCC’s lack of reply to important questions contained in the letter raises serious concerns of regulatory responsibility and competency.
The inquiry letter to the FCC suggests as many as 75% of cell phones on the market today may possibly exceed the FCC’s exposure limit of 1.6 W/kg peak spatial Specific Absorption Rate (psSAR), due to a +/-30% margin of error (or uncertainty factor) in the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) methodology for assessing psSAR (on which the FCC’s exposure limits are substantially based). Any phone with a psSAR of greater than 1.231 W/kg with the 30% uncertainty factor could theoretically exceed the 1.6 W/kg FCC limit.

Sobering statistics
Testicular and breast cancer
While brain tumours predominate among adolescents, testicular cancer is diagnosed more frequently in young adult males. In Canadian males 15-29 years, testicular cancer increased 2.7% per year between 1996 and 2005. Phones carried in pockets may contribute, as sperm are damaged by radiofrequency radiation exposure from phones in pockets and laptops. Young women habitually carrying phones in bras are developing characteristic breast cancers.

Why children absorb more microwave radiation than adults: The consequences - L. Lloyd Morgana, Santosh Kesarib, Devra Lee Davis
-Children absorb more microwave radiation (MWR) than adults.
-MWR is a Class 2B (possible) carcinogen.
-The fetus is in greater danger than children from exposure to MWR.
-The legal exposure limits have remained unchanged for decades.
-Cellphone manuals warnings and the 20 cm rule for tablets/laptops violate the “normal operating position” regulation.

Subject: French companies must now protect employees from wireless radiation

French companies will have to protect employees from electromagnetic waves
(Google translation from French)

France Inter with Yann Gallic, January 1, 2017

This is one of the novelties of January 1: companies will now have to take into consideration the issue of electromagnetic waves to which employees are exposed
Measurement of electromagnetic waves using a broad-band isotropic probe. © Sipa / Valinco
These waves are emitted especially by wireless equipment: Wi-Fi, mobile phones or tablets. It took three years for this European directive to be applied in France. A decree, published on August 6 in the Official Journal [https://www.legifrance.gouv.fr/…/d…/2016/8/3/ETST1611714D/jo], on the "protection of workers against the risks arising from electromagnetic fields," said the exposure thresholds that must not be exceeded.

The employer must assess the risks incurred by its employee

Employees should be informed of the risks and the workplaces where they are likely to be exposed to "electromagnetic field levels exceeding the values" should be reported to them and their access be limited. The results shall be communicated to the occupational physician and the health, safety and working conditions committee or, failing that, to the staff representatives and in the event of crossing the levels, workers may be given a medical examination.

Pregnant women and employees under 18 years of age will also receive special attention. Every effort should be made to ensure that the impact of waves is the lowest.

A first step for all employees "electrosensibles"
Sophie Pelletier is an engineer and works in a public administration in the center of Paris. For six years she has hardly any working life. Electro diagnosed by doctors, it is now recognized as a disabled worker because his health has continued to deteriorate due to electromagnetic waves: "In the meeting rooms and wifi in the subway and public transportation, Throughout the week I accumulate this exposure which ends up echoing my general state, with great fatigue, and creates me troubles of the heart rhythm, memory and attention that prevent me to return to work When I'm too tired ".

Sophie Pelletier continues the sick leave. She has repeatedly requested that her position and working time be adjusted. But she has always run into the misunderstanding of her employer. "It's a disease that does not fit in the boxes," she explains, "it's complicated for the employer to arrange a number of things to allow me to keep myself properly in the job. 'I lost two thirds of my salary for several years and it annoys me because I put a damper on my career, or my health, or both at the same time.

According to estimates, in France, there are now nearly 70,000 people with électrosensibilité.

CASUALTIES OF WAVES
Yes, a percentage of the population--a growing percentage--is being made physically sick by exposure to wireless radiation waves. Invisible but deadly. For some--the torture is readily apparent to them. For others, it will accumulate over time and manifest as cancer or some neurological or immune issue. Those affected are being tortured and ignored.

Cellular Deception
As the global push to sell us faster data intensifies, cell antennas are being installed on utility poles right by our homes, often without our knowledge or consent. Science warns that the artificial electromagnetic frequencies (EMF) these microcells emit disrupts wildlife, humans, and all living cells.

STEALTH CANADA—deep-sixing the science on wireless radiation
Teachers, too, are being challenged to become empowered. If they dare to test the levels of radiation coming from Wi-Fi routers in their school, to protect their own health as well as the health of the schoolchildren, or if they turn the router off when not in use, they can lose their job.

Is there a Telus Micro-Cell Transmitter in front of your home?

Telus Micro-cell transmitters are popping up on utility poles across the province and we should be concerned about the radiation emitting from these transmitters without our informed consent. This service is for TELUS CUSTOMERS ONLY and yet we are all being exposed. Everyone knows the Fiber Optic Cable is the latest in technology and with a hard-wired connection is fast, secure and safe.  But Telus is misleading the public by failing to inform us of the proven health risks from these Micro-cells on the telephone poles and the wireless boxes connecting the cable to our homes.

Health Canada Denies The Proven Dangers of Microwave Radiation

To: Canadian Minster of Health, Dr. Philpott and Members of the Standing Committee on Health (HESA)

This is unacceptable from public officials who are accountable to us, the public. We should not have to protect ourselves from our own government or remind you to do the job you were elected to do—protect our health and safety rather than supporting an industry that is knowingly doing us harm.

You have refused to accept, acknowledge or act upon the scientific evidence of the harm caused by wireless radiation, but you will soon be forced to do so. Continue to deny and distort the facts, and you will create the most costly epidemic of illness ever. It will require guts and integrity to admit your negligence and tackle the problem now, before it escalates out of control.

Canada’s Health Minister Caught Misleading Canadians about Safety of their Wireless Devices

The EMF-Portal is an extensive literature database with an inventory of 23,675 publications and 5,823 summaries of individual peer reviewed scientific studies on the effects of electromagnetic fields.
How much more evidence do we need when School Officials, Health Officers and Government Officials are unable to provide parents with ONE STUDY that says microwave radiation exposure is safe for children and the unborn?


A Canadian cancer specialist who testified before the Parliamentary Committee says Philpott’s failure to acknowledge the Committee’s findings is dangerous.  “We are already seeing increases in Glioblastoma, the most aggressive form of brain cancer,” said Dr. Anthony Miller, a cancer epidemiologist with the University of Toronto, who has been an advisor to the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
“This type brain cancer has been directly connected to cell phone use,” he said, referring to the findings of a $25 million US government study released in June.

Dr. Riina Bray - Medical Director, Environmental Health Clinic, Women’s College Hospital, Testifies at the Parliamentary Health Committee
We see EHS in people who have predisposing stressors such as cardiac arrhythmias, neurological problems, physical and mental exhaustion, previous prolonged exposures as with teachers and technicians working in wireless institutions, the airline industry, computer and information technology, and health professionals in institutions where wireless technology is used for monitoring.


The U.S. National Toxicology Program

“The Journal includes experimental research findings that long-term exposure to Wi-Fi caused DNA damage to the testes indicating that the testes are a more sensitive organ to RF radiation. Research results also showed prenatal exposures to Wi-Fi increased oxidative stress in the brain and liver of pregnant rats and their newborns. In addition, the published studies indicated RF-EMF during pregnancy can damage neuron development in the cerebellum, damage spinal cord development, and induce oxidative DNA damage in brain….

"When combined with the positive results of the U.S. National Toxicology Program bioassay [http://ehtrust.org/ntp-toxicology-carcinogenicity-studies-/] that found significant increases in specific types of highly aggressive and malignant tumors, the experimental evidence showing that wireless radiation can be damaging to human health has become stronger. The challenge to regulators around the world is what to do now that we have this growing experimental evidence of harm. Do we continue to wait for proof that humans are damaged by the same exposures or do we take precautionary steps to reduce and limit those exposures?" asks Robert Morris MD PhD, Senior Medical Advisor to Environmental Health Trust which has posted the key findings [http://ehtrust.org/special-issue-medical-journal-journal-c/] from each of the papers on their website.”

Nokia's Technology Director, Matti Niemelä: Mobile Radiation Destroyed My Health

Matti Niemelä is one of Nokia's former technical directors, and has been involved in the development of many of the early mobile phones for Nokia. Matti became seriously ill from mobile industry microwave radiation. In addition, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS). Some studies suggest that radiation can increase the risk of MS.
Niemelä believes that we have been silent for too long about the risks. He is particularly worried about children. But the Vice President of Nokia claims: "All Nokia products fulfill international requirements and limits."



American Academy of Pediatrics Issues New Recommendations to "Reduce Exposure to Cell Phones"

"They're not toys. They have radiation that is emitted from them and the more we can keep it off the body and use (the phone) in other ways, it will be safer," said Jennifer A. Lowry, M.D., FAACT, FAAP, chair of the AAP Council on Environmental Health Executive Committee in the AAPs press release on the NTP Study Results.

The Berkeley case “Right to Know” - Conflict of Interest

For Immediate Release:
Contact: Ellen Marks, California Brain Tumor Association


Ninth Circuit Court Judge Friedland's Conflict of Interest
​On September 13 ​the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the CTIA- Wireless Association's appeal in their lawsuit against the City of Berkeley's Cell Phone Right to Know ordinance which was implemented in March, 2016. A decision has not yet been rendered.
Video of hearing below. ​ 
       
The three presiding judges of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals were Judge William Fletcher, Judge Morgan Christen and Judge Michelle Friedland. The potential conflict of interest rests with Judge Michelle Fri​edland.
 
Friedland's husband's career included design engineering​ in the wireless telecommunication industry with Cisco Systems, a member of the CTIA- wireless association​


This case has high visibility on the basis of constitutionality of the law and because the CTIA is represented by Theodore Olson, past Solicitor General for  George W. Bush. The City of Berkeley is defended pro bono by Harvard Constitutional Law Professor Lawrence Lessig. Lessig is also a past United States presidential candidate.

The outcome of this​ case​ is much anticipated as many cities and states​ are awaiting this critical ​ruling as they plan to enact their own versions of Berkeley's cell phone right to know label.

California Attorney General Harris's office submitted an Amicus Brief in support of Berkeley with concerns that a ruling against Berkeley's ordinance may harm other important disclosures protecting the welfare of California citizens. 

During the hearing Judge Michelle Friedland seemed to have an unfavorable opinion regarding the City of Berkeley's position giving consumers the right to know. This predisposed bias was present in the form of questions and statements ​made by the judge.
The case before the federal Court of Appeals is CTIA-The Wireless Association v. City of Berkeley et al., case number 16-15141.

In past yea​rs Friedland also submitted an amicus brief supporting the work of Theodore Olson in regard to prop 8 (same sex marriage).
