Corruption and Greed are Harming and Literally Killing an Unsuspecting Public
Dear RDN (Regional District of Nanaimo) Directors,
Congratulations to each of you! Tragically, your predecessors did not take this issue seriously; hopefully you will, for each of you is affected, as are your loved ones and all those who work within RDN buildings.
Corruption and Greed are Harming and Literally Killing an Unsuspecting Public
The corrupt U.S. Military-Industrial-Complex, about which U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned the American people to be on guard against in 1961, is not only alive and well, but it has grown such that it now consumes most major Western countries! Between them (i.e., the U.S. Military’s phobia that it must remain the world’s only super power, and the Electric/Electronics Industry’s insatiable greed), their technologies now literally threaten the continuation of the human race … and planet Earth’s very environment!
The reader needs to understand three things: 1) What we’re experiencing today could not have happened had it not been for mainstream news media’s decision back in the 1960s to remain largely silent on non-thermal radiation; 2) ‘microwave’ frequencies are contained within a larger band of frequencies called ‘radio’ frequencies or “RF,” and the radiation all such wireless radio products / devices / toys produce is called ‘electromagnetic radiation’ or “EMR” or, simply, RF EMR; and, 3) anything in which electricity is flowing produces electric and magnetic fields (EMF) i.e., overhead power lines, substations, smart meters, household electricity, electric appliances, tools, machinery, electric vehicles, etc.
In order for allied militaries (e.g. NATO, NORAD) to operate effectively (seamlessly) with U.S. forces, they were obliged to adopt the U.S. Military’s outrageously-high (10 mW/cm² or 10,000,000 µW/m²) ‘safe’ Exposure Limit for RF EMR, which they did in 1966 … as did the USA itself 1. Back then, these ‘guidelines’ recognized the heating or thermal-effects ONLY of microwave radiation - and still do today! That is the problem! But this left the door wide-open for industry to exploit this untapped universe of wireless products / devices / gadgets - all of which have proved to be extremely profitable … and are known to emit hazardous non-thermal RF EMR! Contrary to the U.S. M-I-C’s position – and that of the major Western countries - non-industry scientists, globally, say that non-thermal RF EMR CAUSES autism, ADHD, brain tumors, breast cancer, thyroid cancer, testicular cancer, pancreatic cancer, colon and other cancers, leukemia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, suicides, depression, miscarriages, sudden-Infant-death-syndrome (SIDS), asthma, etc.! It has been estimated that the wireless industry today is worth some 11-billion dollars! While, back in 1966, today’s disease epidemics could not possibly have been imagined, today they are very real and worsening all the time. No person and no living thing can escape this ever-thickening, invisible, silent, odorless, tasteless radiation, which scientists call “electro-smog,” yet to-day it is everywhere and, scientists say, it is now so dense around the entire globe that it literally threatens man’s very existence on Earth!
Today, governments (who have benefitted enormously from the tax revenue they’ve realized from industry all these years) and both the electric power and wireless and telecom industries – being mindful of history (i.e., big tobacco, asbestos, Thalidomide etc.) are, perforce, obliged to cling to and defend as best they can for as long as they can the views held back in 1966! But science and time are against them. Thanks to the Internet and social media, conventional news media are less able today to control what the public are ‘permitted’ to know. Thanks to the Internet, non-industry scientists, health care professionals and an increasingly informed public are growing in numbers around the world and coalescing to stop this, what amounts to: 1) a crime against humanity; 2) a violation of every person’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms; and, 3) a Violation of the Nuremburg Code.
It needs to be known that, in 2016/2017, a very virulent form of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma struck me (the writer) out of the blue! A fitness buff all of my life, there is no doubt in my mind that my cancer resulted from my 20+ years of using wireless devices daily, in business and at home, e.g., a Blackberry and various other android cell phones, Wi-Fi routers, a wireless laptop, multiple cordless phones, Bluetooth in my latest vehicles, etc. I even stupidly made a point of having electric ‘in-floor’ heating installed in three of my homes! While I was extremely fortunate to have had an excellent medical team, it was my wife’s determination and tireless efforts that finally pulled me through – but not before I had lost some 50 of what had been my normal weight of 175 lbs (only half of which I have since regained). And the chemotherapy the doctors used has permanently damaged nerves in my lower extremities, affecting my balance while standing.
1) In 1953, the U.S. Navy established 10 W/m² or 10,000,000 µW/m² as the ‘safe’ Exposure Limit for those exposed to microwave radiation (RF EMR) - which recognized ONLY the thermal effects of this radiation! At that time, the U.S. Military may not have known or at least did not admit that there were or could be harmful non-thermal effects to RF EMR. (See Ref. 1 again)
2) In 1961, U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned the American people to be on guard against the emergence of a corrupt U.S. Military-Industrial-Complex (US M-I-C). But authorities did nothing to protect the public!
3) In 1963, U.S. President John F. Kennedy told the audience at Columbia University that the U.S. is in danger from within, and that he intended to inform the citizens. Ten days layer he was assassinated. Authorities did nothing to protect the public!
4) In 1966, NATO and the ‘Five-Eyes’ countries (which, in addition to the U.S., includes the U.K., Canada, Australia and New Zealand) were obliged to adopt the same egregiously-high ‘safe’ Exposure Limits of the U.S. Military, i.e., 10,000,000 µW/m² in order for their communications and weapons systems to be compatible with those of the U.S.A., the world’s only super-power!
5) In 1968, U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson pledged to keep American’s safe in their homes and at work and pledged to protect them from hazardous radiation from TV sets and other electronic equipment (all of which emit hazardous non-thermal EMR)! (This was hard evidence that the feared US-M-I-C existed!) Yet those in authority did nothing to protect the public!
6) In 1971, U.S. President Richard Nixon’s own electromagnetic radiation (EMR) Advisory Council warned him that the (non-thermal) EMR already in our homes, places of work, cities etc. may already be biologically significant and that the entire population of the USA may be at risk! (Indisputable evidence that the US M-I-C existed. And this was at least 15 years BEFORE wireless technology began flooding North America! Still, those in authority did nothing to protect the public!
7) In 1975, the U.S. Military’s ‘Tri-Service EMR Bioeffects Research Plan’ admitted that, “for them to adopt lower/safer Exposure Limits, would cost them dearly as they would need to buy substantial additional lands for them to provide the public with adequate ‘buffer’ zones”!
8) In 1976 the declassified U.S. DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) Report on Microwaves stated: “If the more advanced nations of the West are strict in their enforcement of stringent exposure standards, there could be unfavourable effects on industrial output and military functions”!
9) In 1976, the U.S. Government advised its Western allies: “not to talk about non-thermal effects of microwave radiation. If it did not heat the body, they were not to talk about it”!
10) A 1976 U.S. Defense Intelligence document lists all of the health hazards caused by wireless devices. It concludes: “This should be kept secret to preserve industrial profit.”
11) In about 1979, the U.S. EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) estimated that: “if the Soviet RF Exposure Limit of 1 uW for the public (instead of the U.S.’ 10,000,000 µW/m²was adopted here, over 90% of U.S. FM stations would have to be shut down”!
12) In 1986, the U.S. EPA proposed that pulsed non-thermal RF EMR be designated as a Class C (Possible) carcinogen – but was slapped down and had its funding cut off!
13) In 1986, the U.S. Office of Naval Research also had its funding cut off for research into non-thermal radiation!
14) In 1993, an internal U.S. FDA (Food & Drug Administration) memo states that data “strongly suggests” that microwave radiation promotes cancer!
15) In 1994, a U.S. Air Force study confirmed the existence of non-thermal EMF effects, including alterations to the central nervous system and cardiovascular system!
16) In 1994, U.S. Military scientists said: “Microwave energy in the range 1 to 5 GHz, a militarily important range, penetrates all organ systems of the body and thus puts all organ systems at risk. Effects on the central nervous system are considered very important”! (This range of frequencies is precisely where all of today’s wireless products – even baby monitors and smart meters – are authorized to emit their hazardous non-thermal radiation!)
17) In 1995, U.S. President Bill Clinton issued a formal Memorandum stating that transmitter masts (which include cell towers) should not be sited on schools or near residential areas. (Yet the very next year, he signed the Telecommunications Act, which, in part, was written by the Telecom Industry itself! Those in authority did nothing!
18) On Sept. 13, 1995, the U.S. EPA’s own research caused them concern about EMR/F – wanted to establish guidelines to protect the public, but the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations stated: “… EPA should not engage in EMF activities”! EPA then had its budget cut drastically!
19) In 2004, then U.S. Senator John McCain said: “We have seen compelling evidence that there is an incestuous relationship between the defense industry and defense officials that is not good for America.” Those in authority did nothing!
20) In 2005, ICES TC-95 sub-committee 3 set – for the world – guidelines for what are supposed to be ‘safe’ levels of 50 / 60 Hz (power line frequency) electric and magnetic fields people can be exposed to in their homes, schools, places of work, etc. (See the corruption, below)
21) In 2010, U.S. President Barack Obama’s Cancer Advisory Panel said that the nation’s most pressing issue is the use of wireless devices by children. Still, those in authority did nothing!
Radiation Regulatory Agencies
There are two international health regulatory agencies: the WHO (World Health Organization) and ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection). Within the USA, there are also two regulatory agencies: ICES (International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety) - a committee within the private sector organization known as IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) - and the FCC (Federal Communications Commission), which has no EMF / EMR scientists of its own. The FCC (an industry-captured agency) simply adopts whatever ‘guidelines’ are set by the U.S. Military-controlled ICES’ Technical Committee (TC) 95 (sub-committees 3 and 4) and promulgates them to the world as FCC guidelines.
Neither the USA nor Canada has ever established its own national ‘safe’ Exposure Guidelines to protect the public from the effects of long-term exposure to low-level non-thermal Extremely Low (or powerline 60 Hz) frequency or “ELF” electric or magnetic fields “EMF”s, to which we are all exposed when we are near anything in which electricity flows, i.e., overhead power lines, substations, household electricity and appliances, etc. Instead, the USA follows the guidelines set by ICES TC95 subcommittee 3 (see ‘ICES’ in Part TWO); whereas Canada and the WHO follow and endorse the recommendations of ICNIRP.
International Criticism of the USA-Led ‘Western’ Guidelines:
1) Switzerland, Belgium, Austria, Italy, Russia, China and most East European countries (and the Toronto Board of Health) observe ‘safe’ Exposure Limits which are at least 100 times lower (safer) than those of U.S.-led Western countries – including Health Canada’s (HC) Safety Code 6 (SC6)!
2) The non-industry BioInitiative 2007 Report urged all countries of the world to reduce their RF EMR ‘safe’ Exposure Limits 10,000 times! Those in authority did nothing.
3) In Sept. 2008, the Parliament of the European Union (28 countries, 500-million people) voted 522 to 16 to agree with the BioInitiative 2007 Report – i.e., ICNIRP’s current EMF safety standards are obsolete and must be renewed! Those in authority did nothing!
4) In 2010, the Seletun Statement – Norway (The International Electromagnetic Field Alliance – IEMFA) said that ICNIRP’s and IEEE/FCC’s public safety limits are inadequate and obsolete and that new biologically-based (i.e. non-thermal) standards are urgently needed to protect public health world-wide! 2 Those in authority did nothing!
5) In 2011, the Council of Europe (47 countries, >830-million people) called on European governments to introduce the Precautionary Principle and/or observe the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle. 3 But those in authority did nothing!
6) In June 2011, the European Parliaments declared that they recognize for the first time the biological effects of EMF on living plants, animals and humans. The need now is to protect citizens from EMR, particularly pregnant women, newborn babies and children. 4 Still, authorities did nothing.
7) The BioInitiative 2012 Report (29 authors, including 21 PhDs and 10 health specialists from 10 countries) urged all countries to reduce their Exposure Limits 3 to 6 million – repeat – 3 to 6 million times! Indefensibly, authorities did nothing!
8) In 2014, the U.S. Department of the Interior attacked the FCC’s exposure guidelines calling them obsolete and 30 years out of date! (And these are similar to those which all Western countries follow). Authorities still did nothing!
9) In 2014, 53 scientists from 18 countries condemned Health Canada’s SC6 and called on HC to intervene to help avoid an emerging health crisis. 5
10) In 2014, 55 Canadian doctors condemned SC6 and called for Health Canada to protect Canadians from RF exposure! 6
11) In 2015, scientists from 41 countries signed the International EMF Scientists’ Appeal, which called on the UN, all UN-member countries, and all world governments to “Protect Mankind and Wildlife from EMFs and wireless technologies. Currently, at least 242 scientists have signed the Appeal!
12) The BioInitiative 2017 Report states emphatically that “The agent (RF EMR) is carcinogenic to humans!” 4 Yet all Western nations remain deaf!
13) In 2017 it was revealed that WHO’s core group of RF EHC experts were, except for one, all ICNIRP members! 7
14) In 2017, more than 180 scientists from 37 countries including 17 from non-EU countries appealed for “5G” (Fifth Generation technology) moratorium warning of potential serious threats to human health and the environment 8
15) In May, 2018, the International Society of Doctors for the Environment, its subsidiaries in 27 countries and more than 200 doctors and scientists, called for the stop to roll-out of “5G” due to concerns the radiation will have adverse health effects. 9
16) As of Nov., 2018, 20,308 people have signed the “International Appeal, Stop 5G on Earth and in Space. 10
1) Despite all of the above, Health Canada has not once imposed the ‘Precautionary Principle’ in an effort to protect the unsuspecting and defenseless Canadian population!
Not once has Health Canada put the onus on industry to prove – using independent, qualified EMF / EMR professionals, having no ties to industry - that their technologies are SAFE to be used by, on and around people, of all sizes, of all ages, of all levels of wellness, continuously, around the clock, in perpetuity, before they were allowed to use or sell them!
