Dear Barry Gerding,

 

Re: Radiation risk to Central Okanagan students’ presentation rejected

https://www.kelownacapnews.com/news/radiation-risk-to-central-okanagan-students-presentation-rejected/  

We would like to applaud School Trustee, Amy Geistlinger for taking the initiative to try to education the trustees of Central Okanagan Public Schools on the health effects of mandatory exposure of microwave radiation in our schools.  It takes leadership to challenge what is popular and address the need for more education on the safe use of wireless technology.

 

Amy Giestlinger has done her due diligence by asking for all credible health information be presented to the trustees from qualified experts, nationally and internationally, who emphasize children's heightened vulnerabilities and the need for "precautionary" measures to reduce exposure and the risk of permanent health effects.

 

It is obvious that Amy Giestlinger is trying in good faith to fulfill her moral and legal obligation, to protect our children, while under her care in our schools.

 

Parents, teachers and students who have expressed their concerns in the past, only to have them ignored, would like to Thank You Amy!

 

Respectfully,

 

Janis Hoffmann

To: <educ.minister@gov.bc.ca>

Dear BC Minister of Education, Jennifer Whiteside, 

 - Did you know Apple says, “Read all safety information below and operating instructions before using iPad to avoid injury?” 

- Did you know the manual warns that if a user does not handle the iPad exactly as instructed, the radiation level will exceed governments’ exposure limits for humans? 

 - Did you know the iPad has five antennas? 

 - Did you know when your child is holding an iPad in portrait mode on their lap or near their chest; the microwave radiation is penetrating their internal organs? 

- Did you know that every female is born with all the eggs they will ever have to reproduce? 

- Did you know when your child is holding an iPad in landscape mode their hands are covering the transmitting antennas and absorbing microwave radiation directly into their bodies

- Did you know an iPad emits a burst of microwave radiation approximately every four seconds? 

 - Did you know that makes 900 blasts per hour in 
the child’s hands, on their lap, or at their face? 

- Did you know the WHO states: “The general population receives the highest exposure from transmitters close to the body... In children... deposition of RF energy may be two times higher in the brain and up to ten times higher in the bone marrow of the skull than in adult users?” 

 - Did you know the Safety Manual warns of Seizures, Blackouts, and Eyestrain, stating that a small percentage of people may be susceptible to blackouts or seizures (even if they have never had one before) when exposed to flashing lights or light patterns such as when playing games or watching video? That if you have experienced seizures or blackouts or have a family history of such occurrences, you should consult a physician before playing games or watching videos on your iPad. 

 - Did you know the Safety Manual says to discontinue use of iPad and consult a physician if you experience headaches, blackouts, seizures, convulsion, eye or muscle twitching, loss of awareness, involuntary movement, or disorientation? And to reduce risk of headaches, blackouts, seizures, and eyestrain, avoid prolonged use, hold iPad some distance from your eyes, use iPad in a well-lit room, and take frequent breaks. 

Our question is: Why are our School Officials not educating our children to follow the federally mandated Safety Manual that comes with every wireless device? 

Respectfully, 

Janis Hoffmann

The studies for letter #2 Dear BC Minister of Education, Jennifer Whiteside

Parents, teachers and students are frustrated because the BC Government, Health Officials and School Officials have willfully dismissed all credible health information presented to them from qualified experts, nationally and internationally, which emphasizes children's heightened vulnerabilities and the need for "precautionary" measures to reduce exposure and risk from the harmful effects.

In a letter dated Nov. 19, 2014, Dr. Richard Stanwick, School Medical Officer, responded to my request to hard wired the classrooms so my grandson could attend school by stating: Upon review of the evidence, the prevailing position in this province from experts at the federal, provincial and regional levels is that the evidence reveals that Wi-Fi exposure in schools does not pose a level of risk that is unacceptable. This position is held by the other chief medical health officers in the province, Provincial Health Officer, Ministry of Health and other federal and provincial agencies. 

In 2011 the WHO / International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radio frequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group2B), based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer1, associated with wireless phone use. 

https://www.iarc.who.int/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/pr208_E.pdf 

In March 2018, the National Toxicology Program (NTP), a 10-year study on 2G and 3G technologies found “Clear Evidence” of cancer in the heart and brain from the prolonged exposure to wireless radiation from cell phones. 

 https://ehtrust.org/cell-phone-radiofrequency-radiation-study/ 

NOTE: There have been no long-term studies on 4G and 5G. 

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 increased risk of malignant heart tumors. 

https://ehtrust.org/worlds-largest-animal-study-on-cell-tower-radiation-confirms-cancer-link/ 

Ronald Melnick PhD, formerly the Senior NIH toxicologist who led the design of the NTP study on cell phone radiation now a Senior Science Advisor to Environmental Health Trust (EHT) stated, "All of the exposures used in the Ramazzini study were below the US FCC limits. These are permissible exposures according the FCC. In other words, a person can legally be exposed to this level of radiation. Yet cancers occurred in these animals at these legally permitted levels. The Ramazzini findings are consistent with the NTP study demonstrating these effects are a reproducible finding." "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.

Over 240 scientists, who have published peer-reviewed research on the biologic and health effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields, or EMF, signed the International EMF Scientist Appeal, which calls for stronger RF exposure limits.

Researcher Zorach Glaser, Ph.D. spent decades archiving over 4,000 studies beginning from 1961 that examine the association of certain health issues and exposure to microwave and radio frequencies.

Dear BC Minister of Education, Jennifer Whiteside, 

- Did you know that talking on your cell phone 2-1/2 hours a month (not more than 30 minutes a week) is considered "a heavy user"? 

- Did you know a Canadian study found 558 hours of cell phone use can more than a doubled the risk of brain cancer? 

- Did you know the Chicago Tribune recently did an independent investigation into the cell phone scandal (Phonegate) and confirmed the findings that iPhone 7 and other smart phones exceeded the Safety Code 6 guidelines for radiation exposure? 

- Did you know Apple and Samsung are knowingly selling products that exceed allowable radiation limits and have failed to warn its consumers regarding radiation risks and the need to keep the phone at a safe distance away from the body? 

- Did you know the Chicago investigation also confirmed what the French National Agency has warned about for some time that 90% of all the major cellphones tested (more than 450) emitted significantly higher levels of radiation exceeding the safety compliance standards, up to 5 times the current guidelines when phones are tested as they are used in real life?

 - Did you know a recent study by Professor Om Gandhi examined data from 450 cell phones and also confirmed that the phone can exceed the guidelines and emitted up to 11 times over the US FCC limit when used under realistic conditions?

 - Did you know the Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), has failed to do its due diligence by allowing cell phones to be brought onto the market without any independent, practical/realistic-use safety testing?

 - Did you know the manufacturers of cell phones are allowed to self report and only have to submit a sample of a one new phone, sent directly from the factory, to comply with exposure standards that has been set by the industry? 

- Did you know Rob Fleming, previous Minister of Education, had refused to follow Ontario’s lead and ban cellphones and personal devices in our schools, when his child is attending the only school in Victoria with a cell phone ban? 

- Did you know Rob Fleming has denied parents the opportunity to make an informed decision for their children, on the cell phone ban in BC? 

Our question is: Will you allow parents to make an informed decision on the use of wireless technology in our schools?

To: <educ.minister@gov.bc.ca>

Dear BC Minister of Education, Jennifer Whiteside, 

- Did you know that the Medical Definition of Microwave Sickness is: a condition of impaired health first reported in the Russian medical literature that is characterized by headaches, anxiety, sleep disturbances, fatigue, and difficulty in concentrating and by changes in the cardiovascular and central nervous systems and that is held to be caused by prolonged exposure to low-intensity microwave radiation? 

 - Did you know that thousands of peer-reviewed studies show adverse health effects from wireless radiation exposure including cancer, neurological harm, abnormal brain development and reproductive health problems? 

- Did you know that a $30 million dollar, 10-year study by the US National Toxicology Program on 2G and 3G technologies found “Clear Evidence” of cancer in the heart and brain from the prolonged exposure to wireless radiation from cell phones? 

- Did you know there have been NO long-term studies done on 4G and 5G technologies? 

- Did you know another long term study by the Ramazzini Institute also found that exposure to wireless radiation from distant cell towers was associated with a increased risk of malignant heart tumors confirming the results of the NTP study? 

 - Did you know that a researcher Zorach Glaser, Ph.D. spent decades archiving over 4,000 studies beginning from 1961 that examine the association of certain health issues and exposure to microwave and radio frequencies? 

 - Did you know that over 240 scientists who have published peer-reviewed research on the biologic and health effects of nonionizing electromagnetic fields, or EMF, signed the International EMF Scientist Appeal, which calls for stronger RF exposure limits? 

 - Did you know that the BC Government, Health Officials and School Officials have willfully dismissed all credible health information presented to them from qualified experts, nationally and internationally, which emphasizes children's heightened vulnerabilities and the need for "precautionary" measures to reduce exposure and risk from the harmful effects? 

 - Did you know that 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?

 Our question is: Can you send us ONE peer reviewed study by a scientist or medical expert stating, “exposure to microwave radiation is safe for children and the unborn.” 

 Respectfully, 

Janis Hoffmann

Colon Cancer Rates In Younger Adults Are Rising

Archive of 4,000 Documents Reveals Government Knew Decades Ago About Health Impact of Wireless Technology

A few years ago, when Glaser realized the importance of his archives, he donated them to Dr. Magda Havas, Ph.D. of Trent University in Canada. Havas, an associate professor of environmental and resource studies, has worked for more than a decade to expose the harms of wireless technology.  Researcher Zorach Glaser, Ph.D. spent decades archiving studies that examine the link between certain health issues and exposure to microwave and radio frequencies. Scholars and the public are now invited to help review Glaser’s documents.

Colon Cancer Rates In Younger Adults Are Rising

Get those cell phones out of your pockets

Those born around 1990 are twice as likely to get colon cancer and four times as likely to get rectal cancer than those born in 1950, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS). New cases of colon cancer and rectal cancer are occurring at an increasing rate among young and middle-aged adults throughout the U.S.  In 2020, there will be about 18,000 cases of colorectal cancer diagnosed in people under 50, or about 49 new cases per day, according to the Colon Cancer Coalition. It's reported that one in five colorectal cancer patients are between 20 and 54 years old.

Radiation From Wireless Devices May Cause Breast Cancer, New Study Shows

A meta-analysis of eight studies reveals that exposure to radiation from cell phones, iPads and laptops significantly increase the risk of breast cancer, especially for women over 50.

MICROWAVES AND CHILDREN

'Children absorb more MWR than adults because their brain tissues are more absorbent, their skulls are thinner and their relative size is smaller. MWR from wireless devices has been declared a possible human carcinogen. Children are at greater risk than adults when exposed to any carcinogen. Because the average latency time between first exposure and diagnosis of a tumor can be decades, tumors induced in children may not be diagnosed until well into adulthood. The fetus is particularly vulnerable to MWR. MWR exposure can result in degeneration of the protective myelin sheath that surrounds brain neurons. MWR-emitting toys are being sold for use by young infants and toddlers. Digital dementia has been reported in school age children. A case study has shown when cellphones are placed in teenage girls’ bras multiple primary breast cancer develop beneath where the phones are placed.'

Stories of Hope ~ a teen's foggy brain, rash, itch, fatigue, nausea

"I threw up most days. I felt like the life was being sucked out of me. It was like my body was exploding."  Starting in grade 8, Solveig's life became a nightmare.  "I was the most itchy you've ever been times 100. I would have to dig my nails into my skin to distract myself in class. By noon I had to call my mom in tears to pick me up from school."
