Letters from MDs, Scientists accuse MCPS of posting false info. on wireless safety
Parents of students in Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) in Maryland have been advocating for use of safer technologies in their schools.
A couple weeks ago I sent out a Fox News Story questioning the safety of wireless technology used at Maryland County Public Schools
In response to parents concerns, MCPS has put information on their website addressing these concerns, however many renowned experts from the US and abroad have called the posted information false and misleading, and they have asked MCPS to correct their website in this press release. These experts have backgrounds in pediatric neurology/autism, children's learning, cancer epidemiology, engineering, medicine, and/or biochemistry and other sciences EHT President Dr. Devra Davis commented, "The erroneous information provided by Montgomery County Public Schools on its website is emblematic of a nationwide problem. Local schools and policymakers are not provided adequate information about the possible health risks of wireless radiation from the federal health agencies on which they rely. The EPA, the CDC and the FDA have not reviewed current science and determined US exposure limits to be safe. Most people assume that the federal government has radiofrequency regulations that protect children from health effects from long-term exposures, but that is a myth. We have no proof of safety."
Please read all 15 letters - they are all very well written and very enlightening.
This letter from Dr. Martin Pall, Professor Emeritus, Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences, Washington State University should be read first. He discovered that wireless radiation can activate (open) VGCC's in cell membranes of excitable cells (e.g. muscle, glial, neurons) which increases calcium within cells - this increased intracellular calcium concentration accelerates death of these cells (e.g. neurons and myelin cells protecting nerves) and degrades essential cell structures. This 2013 paper  was honored by being placed on the Global Medical Discovery web site as one of the most important medical papers of 2013. Dr. Pall got his BA in Physics at Johns Hopkins University Baltimore, MD and PHD in Biochemistry and Genetics at the California Institute of Technology, CA. He is former Acting Chairman of the Program in Genetics, Washington State University, and has been a Professor of Genetics and Cell Biology and Biochemistry and Professor of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences.
