Vancouver Island Conference

The display at the Vancouver Island Conference for the three school districts was a huge success thanks to Devra Davis and the volunteers who took time out of their busy Saturday to help.  http://www.vipc.ca/  We were so surprised to be welcomed and thanked for presenting parents with information packages with safety tips on how to reduce exposure from the wireless technology.

Parents wanted to know why their School Boards were not informing them about the health risks associated with RF exposure in our schools.

They also wanted to know why the resolutions passed by parents and teachers unions have been ignored by the School Districts and how they were allowed to move forward without consulting with parents. 

Parents are starting to ask questions!

Thanks again for an eventful day!

SIMPLE SOLUTIONS FOR HARD-WIRING A CLASSROOM and WIRELESS DEVICES

SIMPLE SOLUTIONS FOR HARD-WIRING A CLASSROOM and WIRELESS DEVICES to SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE RADIOFREQUENCY RADIATION HAZARDS
More and more schools are implementing a 'No cell phone' policy during school hours due to distractions that negatively impact learning. However, much of this problem could be resolved with the removal of WiFi and the return to hard-wired Internet which is faster, cheaper, more reliable and more secure than wireless networks.

Unlike WiFi, hard-wired Internet gives teachers more control as to when the Internet is accessed in the classroom and allows oversight to ensure the content is appropriate for learning. Hard wired Internet allows oversight that benefits our children while also significantly reducing their daily exposure to RFR.  Peer reviewed science overwhelmingly suggests cumulative Radio Frequency Radiation is a health risk, particularly for developing children. Hard-wired Internet reduces RFR exposure making it the safest, healthiest choice for our children.

World Health Organization - A Call for Action and Accountability

This document has been sent to the WHO and the UN to provide details of these inexcusable failures and what urgently needs to be done to address them.  It also outlines what World Health Organization must do to reverse this destructive course—for itself and for the global citizens it is supposed to protect.  One of the most crucial and urgent steps to be taken is the replacement of the head of the EMF Project, Emilie van Deventer (an electrical engineer with zero health credentials) with an independent, unbiased, medically qualified professional who has firsthand experience and knowledge of microwave sickness/electro-sensitivity and the many other devastating consequences, such as brain cancer, neurological disorders, DNA damage and infertility.

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.

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.
