Help Stop 5G Wireless - a dangerous radiation intensive technology!

Help Stop 5G Wireless - a dangerous radiation intensive technology!

We defeated the proposal to further erode local zoning in California. The stakes are even higher now! Spread the word!

The FCC is voting on whether to move forward with 5G, an extremely dangerous technology. Read Chairman Wheelers comments about the Spectrum Frontiers Proceeding ( This would put 5G transmitters on power and light poles throughout communities across the United States with the aim of creating enough saturation of very high frequency microwave radiation that fiber optic level connectivity is available wirelessly everywhere.

We will need as many people as possible from the U.S. and around the world, including experts, to contact the FCC by July 13, 2016They vote on the proposal on July 14, 2016.

Please take a moment to contact the FCC Commissioners BEFORE their vote on July 14 in opposition to the rollout of 5G. A template letter is below, please take a moment personalize it briefly with your experience to give it greater impact.

Tom Wheeler, Chairman
Mignon Clyburn, Commissioner
Jessica Rosenworcel, Commissioner
Ajit Pai, Commissioner
Michael O'Rielly, Commissioner Mike.O'

Please send a copy of your letter to your U.S. Representative and Senators and the relevant committees (listed below).

Ultimately, it is Congress that decided to give sole responsibility for wireless promotion and safety to an industry dominated agency. It is essential that they hear from you. Only they can give authority for health back to the EPA, which has tried in the past to protect the public. Congress defunded EPA and removed its authority to protect the public from wireless radiation to stop it (

Contact your Congressional Delegation (2 Senators and 1 Representative) Look them up and find their phone and FAX numbers at: and

Call the White House - 202-456-1111. Ask President Obama to halt the rollout of 5G in light of the safety hazards.

President Obama can also be emailed using the form at

Congressional Committees - ask for oversight hearings on dangers of societal saturation with radiation from wireless technology:

Dear FCC Commissioners,

Spectrum Frontiers Proceeding is being represented as an unqualified good, but it is not. It will do great harm to human health and the environment.

Please vote "no" to the Spectrum Frontiers Proceeding. There has been no NEPA review of the environmental and human health impacts of moving forward with 5G. The FCC has put the cart before the horse in promulgating rules for 5G without first studying the safety of 5G for humans and the environment. There is consensus within the scientific community that the existing FCC limits for wireless radiation do not protect the population from biological effects (

The National Toxicology Program recently release results showing that radiofrequency radiation (RFR) can indeed both break DNA and cause cancer 
( and 

Furthermore, the literature on RFR in the very high frequency bands required for 5G document DNA breakages, serious cellular resonance effects, and other detrimental metabolic effects ( andhttp://www.stopglobalwifi/documents/2001_kositsky_et_al._-_ussr_review.pdf).

Non-industry funded studies have consistently found links between RFR and various negative biological effects ( They include serious neurological, cardiac, and metabolic effects, as well as DNA breakage which can lead to cancer and genetic defects (
Studies, including the National Toxicology Program studies, have shown wireless to be a dangerous technology and 5G, according to Chairman Wheeler's own comments, is an infrastructure intensive technology. So, invest in safe, wired infrastructure instead of spending a lot of money to saturate entire communities with hazardous radiation. The "cool" factor is not worth the peril.

Please see "Wireless Technology Violates Human Rights" ( for more information about the very serious ways in which wireless technology violates human rights.

Don't vote to unleash a dangerous environmental pollutant on your friends, family, and, indeed, the whole country. Vote to protect your family, friends, and the country - vote "no" on Spectrum Frontiers. Be on the right side of history.

Wireless Technology Violates Human Rights

How universal exposure to radiation from wireless devices complying with existing inadequate safety limits violates the Nuremberg Code of Ethics

Catherine Kleiber,

The report “Wi-Fi – A Thalidomide in the Making. Who Cares?” by Barrie Trower makes it clear that exposure to radiation from wireless technology will cause DNA damage, including damage to the mitochondrial DNA that is irreparable and will transmit to all future progeny of affected females.   In a mouse study, “RF Radiation–Induced Changes in the Prenatal Development of Mice” (, six months of real-life ambient exposure to a medley of radiation sources at levels well below those allowed by FCC RF limits resulted in total sterility, which did not reverse.  It would be expected to take longer in humans, however this finding supports the urgency of the points Mr. Trower makes in his report which can be found at  

Thus, there is NO possible way that the FCC can both promote wireless technology and protect the public health and safety, as directed by the House Committee on Commerce in H.R. Report No. 104-204, p. 94.

Obviously, Congress made clear with the stipulation that it was the FCC's responsibility to adopt uniform RF regulations "with adequate safeguards of the public health and safety" (H.R. Report No. 104-204, p. 94) that they were not interested in promoting wireless technology at the expense of the public health and safety.

The FCC is obligated by the directive in H.R. Report No. 104-204, p. 94 to inform Congress it is impossible to both promote wireless and protect the public health and safety since it is now clear that wireless technology has the potential to compromise the genetic integrity of individuals for all future generations.  Continued promotion of wireless technology in spite of that and the following evidence:

would not only violate the directive in H.R. Report No. 104-204, p. 94 which said it was the Commission's responsibility to adopt uniform RF regulations "with adequate safeguards of the public health and safety" and the principles of public health protection, but also be in direct violation of the entire Nuremberg Code of Ethics (   

Prior to approval of wireless technology for civilian use, it is clear from “Wi-Fi – A Thalidomide in the Making. Who Cares?” that it was already known that there were bio-effects from exposure to pulsed microwave radiation that were separate from tissue heating and it is clear from Cellular Telephone Russian Roulette: A Historical and Scientific Perspective ( that extensive scientific literature existed showing that harmful tissue heating could occur extremely quickly and locally at levels well below those allowed by the ICNIRP and IEEE limits and also that ample evidence existed of disabling effects on organisms when chronically exposed to RF radiation.  

Reasonable people with full access to the data could and did think a dangerous situation was being created by 1984, see “Biological Effects of Radiofrequency Radiation” (EPA 600/8-83-026F, 1984) ( and then again prior to the passage of the 1996 Telecommunications Act (  In spite of this, no biologically protective safety limits were implemented to protect citizens during daily life.  

It violates the Nuremberg Code of Ethics to experiment on non-consenting people who cannot stop the experiment, especially when harm can reasonably be expected to result.  That is exactly what has happened and is happening.  The fact that those reasonable expectations have been fulfilled can be seen in The BioInitiative Reports and in many of the documents submitted for consideration within these FCC dockets (ET Docket No. 13-84, and ET Docket No. 03-137).  

Industry continues to generate uncertainty, in spite of the numerous well-designed studies showing harm, and continues to call for additional studies instead of action.  Results of the society-wide human experiment continue to roll in which demonstrate the harmfulness of the technology.  A small sample of these studies are below:

Indeed, in light of evidence that harm could be expected from its use and exposure is involuntary in many cases, there has been a violation of the entire Nuremberg Code of Ethics since RF technology was approved for civilian use without biologically-meaningful RF safety limits in place, specifically “1. The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential ...” and “9. During the course of the experiment, the human subject should be at liberty to bring the experiment to an end...”.  Millions of people are being exposed to a dangerous toxin in an open-ended non-consenting experiment which they cannot bring to an end and over which they have no control.     

Performing additional studies without immediate action to put protective safety limits in place based on the array of existing studies showing harm, only continues the massive violation of human rights.  

The fact that any new microwave-based technology might be safer is no excuse to contend that this open-ended non-consenting experiment should continue.  Any new possibly safer technology should be studied in double-blind placebo controlled medical-style laboratory safety studies using approved protocols carefully designed to detect health effects before being allowed to undergo controlled consenting medical-style human studies.  The track record of previous microwave-based (wireless) technology and the Nuremberg Code of Ethics demands it!

Therefore, the FCC is obligated by H.R. Report No. 104-204, p. 94, by the principles of public health protection, and by the Nuremberg Code of Ethics to immediately place a moratorium on additional spectrum sales, antenna installations, transmitting utility meter installations, new wireless technologies, and sales of wireless devices, while notifying Congress, The Environmental Protection Agency, The Center for Disease Control, The National Institute of Health, and The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services of the serious health hazard posed by wireless technology and seeking their professional support in developing RF safety limits that truly protect the public health from biological harm.   If further experiments are needed, they should be done immediately using approved medical-style protocols, not using the entire population in an inescapable uncontrolled study done without consent.
If the FCC would like to argue that this is not an experiment because data collection is not consistent enough and negative outcomes were expected or known, then population-wide exposure to this toxin is still either “inhuman treatment” or “torture,” both of which are human rights violations.  Money is not a justifiable reason to expose an entire population to a potentially lethal agent that can be reasonably expected to isolate and disable many, impairing their ability to reach their full potential and live their life fully and freely.

“5G” Rollout Worries Wi-Fi Health Advocates

“5G” Rollout Worries Wi-Fi Health Advocates

FCC chair Tom Wheeler is pushing for adoption of 5G Wi-Fi router technology July 14 which need millions of mini cell towers potentially in every home and every room.
Tom WheelerFCC chair Tom Wheeler
Alarmed health advocates say Wheeler has provided no time for public comments or hearings. He described 5G at the National Press Club June 20, saying it is “a national priority.” It was not mentioned on the FCC main page. says high-frequency 5G signals travel much faster but over shorter distances and cannot easily penetrate walls.
“That means thousands—perhaps millions—of mini cell towers, or ‘small cells’ would be needed on top of every lamp post, every building, inside every home and potentially every room,” it said.
June 20 was celebrated as the inaugural “World Wi-Fi Day.”
World Wi-Fi Day

5G Is New “Global Platform”

It will be “a global platform to recognize and celebrate the significant role Wi-Fi is playing in getting cities and communities around the world connected,” said Wheeler. “It will champion exciting and innovative solutions to help bridge the digital divide, with Connected City initiatives and new service launches at its core.”
Smartgridawareness says “The drive towards 5G could make smart meter emissions look like almost nothing in comparison. We have no idea what the health consequences of 5G might be like but yet no one in industry or government seems concerned about that, not even a little bit.”
The site said Wheeler’s proposal, called “Spectrum Frontier,” is being enacted without “regulation, thoughtful process, etc. This is about turning developers loose, completely, to create what they want. Absolute insanity."
Wheeler was president and CEO of the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Assn. from 1992-2004 and is the only person ever named to both the Cable TV Hall of Fame and the Wireless Hall of Fame.
Letter from Village Clerk Treasurer

Westhampton Blocks Access to Routers

The Westhampton, New York, library, citing the FCC’s view that radiation is permissible as long as it does not raise the temperature of bodily tissues or fluids, has rejected demands of local residents  for the removal of its Wi-Fi system pending further investigation.
The library will not let this reporter examine or take photos of the Wi-Fi routers which are in the ceilings throughout the building. Highest levels of radiation, as measured by an Acoustimeter, were found in the room where 64 seniors play bridge for four hours each Tuesday. The library board meets in the same room once a month.
Board president Tom Moore and other board members were shown the high ratings but ridiculed them and said “Why don’t you worry about the sun also since that is radiation?”
High radiation levels were also shown to Mayor Maria Moore, wife of Tom Moore, during a meeting of the Village board June 2. Both Moores dismissed the readings as inconsequential as did the other four board members.
When Mayor Moore refused to let us examine the routers in village offices we filed a Freedom of Information request. That was turned down on the ground that the routers are “within the ceiling.”
We have asked Moore and Village Clerk Elizabeth Lindtvit if we can have all the specifications of the routers and take a photo of one.

Biochemist Makes Recommendations

Martin Pall, Ph.D., biochemist at Washington State University, argues that because EMF heating is produced mainly by forces on singly charged groups in the aqueous phases of the cell, the safety guidelines/standards that allow people to be exposed to EMFs are 7.2 million times too high because they are using the wrong target.

Recipients get a big increase in nitrite oxide with calcium in the cell, leading to free radical generation and oxidative stress. They also get an increase in super oxide. These two react with each other, allowing disease causing changes to occur. Calcium signaling is very important in the cell and problems result when there is too much of it.

Microwave frequency EMFs attack four things that people value most, says Paul-- our health, brain function, integrity of our genomes and our ability to produce healthy offspring.

Health advocates believe an “autism epidemic” is probably largely caused by EMF exposures although chemicals also have a role.

At the AutismOne meeting in Chicago last year, Pall discussed 32 different types of evidence that support a pathway of action from microwave EMF exposure through disruption of synapse development in the developing brain of autism

EMFs Have Role in Increased Alzheimer’s

Doctors are also seeing neuropsychiatric effects of EMF exposures and an unexplained increase in premature Alzheimer’s disease. Higher VGCC activity, produced by genetic polymorphism, is associated with Alzheimer’s.

Researchers showed that young rats exposed to multiple short pulsed microwave EMFs, developed oxidative stress, high amyloid beta (Abprotein) levels as well as cognitive and memory impairment in middle age – Alzheimer’s like changes. Alzheimer’s typically has very long latency periods – 20, 25 or 30 years from the time the process starts until symptoms become apparent.

Suggestions by Healthcare Advocates

Repeal the 1996 telecommunications act.

Stop these ever increasing levels of exposures. There are many ways to make these devices much safer but we are running as fast as we can in exactly the wrong direction.

We need biologically relevant safety standards, not the nonsense safety standards that we have now. The best way to develop such standards is to study the effects of EMFs on cells in culture, cells that have high levels of various types of VGCCs. Such cell culture work is not difficult to do, nor is it very expensive to do. It needs to be started right now!!

Cellmast Challenge

Cellmast Challenge

Dear Concerned citizens,

Last year the High Court ruled against a cellphone tower in the Strawberry Lane area but MTN will be appealing this. A date for the High Court Appeal hasn’t been set yet, but we expect it to take place later this year in Bloemfontein.

Letters couriered to MTN’s executive management in March requested that in the interim they at least turn off the mast based on the vigorous objection by the community. This request was refused.

We are now escalating publicity around this important court case which has far-reaching implication for numerous other masts approved as “temporary” structures in Cape Town.

More here (including recent experiences of other local communities):

Kind regards,

Banning computers makes students do better on exams – MIT

Banning computers makes students do better on exams – MIT

We don't need no .edu

School Computer Lab from Shutterstock

Students who have access to computer devices in the classroom do significantly worse than colleagues without them, a study has found.
In a study by MIT's School Effectiveness & Inequality Initiative, titled The Impact of Computer Usage on Academic Performance: Evidence from a Randomized Trial at the United States Military Academy, students whose classroom access to computer devices was prohibited performed better in exams.
726 undergraduates studying an introductory economics course at the United States Military Academy were randomly separated into three groups.
A control group was prohibited from using any laptops or tablets, another had access to tablets which were required to be flat on the table at all times, while the third was free to use tablets and laptops.
The researchers found that "permitting computers or laptops in a classroom lowers overall exam grades by around one-fifth of a standard deviation."
The reasons for this were unclear, however, as a number of factors could potentially contribute to the lower scores, including the ease at which students could be distracted by surfing the internet, lowered note-taking skills, and changes in the teacher's behaviour when interacting with students on a computer.
We want to be clear that we cannot relate our results to a class where the laptop or tablet is used deliberately in classroom instruction, as these exercises may boost a student’s ability to retain the material . Rather, our results relate only to classes where students have the option to use computer devices to take notes.We further cannot test whether the laptop or ta blet leads to worse note taking, whether the increased availability of distractions for computer users (email, facebook, twitter, news, other classes, etc.) leads to lower grades , or whether professors teach differently when students are on their computers.
They conclude: "Given the magnitude of our results , and the increasing emphasis of using technology in the classroom, additional research aimed at distinguishing between these channels is clearly warranted." ®

Canadian Teacher, Forced out by Wi-Fi, Goes on Warpath

Canadian Teacher, Forced out by Wi-Fi, Goes on Warpath

Vancouver Sun - Cellphone Radiation Raises AlarmMaria Plant, British Columbia teacher afflicted with electromagnetic hypersensitivity, has gone on the media warpath after years of rebuffs from government and school officials, scant media attention. 
She is publicizing the validation of her illness by a Canadian Parliamentary committee in any way she can. Among those resisting her message is the BC Teachers Federation which will not publish her letter.
After years of a “media blackout” on the subject, articles have run in the Vancouver Sunand The Province, she notes, expressing the hope for more such articles.
Plant’s letter in its entirety is below.
To Len Webber, Vice Chair, Government of Canada's House of Commons Standing Committee on Health (HESA):
Maria PlantMaria Plant
March 31, 2016
Hello Len Webber:
I am a very recently retired electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) teacher from British Columbia.

I have avidly followed the HESA April 28th meeting minutes, and also read and eagerly circulated the outstanding June 2015 report to Parliament entitled "Radiofrequency Radiation and the Health of Canadians."

In fact, I carry a paper copy of the April 2015 HESA minutes and the June 2015 Report in my purse at all times. I have HESA to thank for validating my illness and giving me credibility in my battle against WiFi and RF, because in BC there are no doctors trained to do thisI 

I have now exhausted all my connections and contacts at this point. I have been trying in earnest for five years to appeal to the schoolboard, the 63 school superintendents in BC school districts, and other powers-that-be, to remove toxic WiFi from our schools. I have been restricted in the past by school policy and union protocol, but the restrictions are now lifted.

I am a “Canary” Spotlighting Danger

I am one of those canaries whom Dr. Riina Bray speaks of in the minutes of the April 28th meeting of HESA...I have extreme EHS.  I was healthy and led a normal life until shortly after WiFi was installed at our school site in 2010. Formerly a Delta teacher for 25 years, I was forced onto Medical Leave this fall due to WiFI signals becoming intolerable, and my symptoms near WiFi was excruciatingly painful to endure.
I chose Early Retirement after my 55th birthday in December 2015, and retired just last month. I have way too much energy, enthusiasm, experience, and love for teaching to be retired. Sigh.
Today I am submitting to you a letter I wrote to the BC Teachers Federation in the fall of 2014. I hope it will add to the increasing evidence in support of your important report and message. The letter is in fact an article I had submitted to the BC Teachers Federation for publication in Teacher Magazine two years ago. They have not yet published the information - I am told this is due to the controversy it might stir.
Since I was recently left with no alternative, due to increasing WiFi sensitivity at school, but to retire from my school district in Delta, I am free to release this information to the I will be contacting the media to publish the article instead.

Stop the “Insanity”

Several teachers in different BC locals as well as from other provinces in Canada are collaborating to contact our new Health Minister with information on WiFi health effects in an effort to stop the insanity!

The situation is out of control in our public schools right now, with the layering of multiple sources of radiation exposure from WiFi routers and boosters, laptops, iPads, and the hundreds (sometimes thousands) of strong iPhones actively in use daily in every public school.

In light of recent developments in the east, with two Ontario unions requesting that WiFi be removed from their schools due to teachers who are developing EHS symptoms and the subsequent lift of the media blackout here in the west (the Vancouver Sun and The Province covered the Ontario story after years of ignoring WiFI issues and Resolutions against its use here within the BCTF), it seems a fitting time to send my article to our local media, outlining my recent lengthy battle with the schoolboard regarding strong WiFi systems in our district.

[Here is link to Vancouver Sun story which reports that while HESA finds that Wi-Fi and other radiation sources are a threat to health government officials do not].

My rapidly developing EHS symptoms and strong reactions to radiowave frequency radiation forced me out of my townhome and into early retirement on March 1st this year. We, the EHS, are being robbed of our rights and freedoms. I am now unable to participate in a formerly active, robust lifestyle, hike or jog in public parks, use transit, walk my dog on public sidewalks to run errands - all due to increased sensitivity to powerful EMF from powerlines, residential mobile phone use, home WiFi upgrades and boosters surging through neighbourhoods, and Smart Meter RF at street level. This is a basic Human Right to "clean air" that has been stolen from us.
Symptoms Emerged after Long Exposure

Due to sensitive skin, allergies and MCS (multiple chemical sensitivities), I am part of that growing group that is predisposed to become EHS. Symptoms began to emerge and develop only after lengthy and prolonged exposure to strong RF's emitted by WiFi signals and routers in my classrooms and hallways. I have no RF in my own home, having never subscribed to home WiFi, mobile phone service, or Smart Meters.

I am not suffering alone - my experience is not unlike that of thousands of other teachers and students in public schools throughout BC and Canada.

Please use any connections you might have to help circulate this information, in order to effect change in federal policy on WiFi use in public spaces and places such as schools, parks, public transit including ferries, and buildings which are now toxic to the increasing number of Canadians who are EHS.

I thank you for your compassion and support.

From David Wolfe

Doctors were puzzled when two women, aged 22 and 44, reported recurring episodes of blindness lasting up to 15 minutes.

After countless MRIs, heart scans and other medical tests proved inconclusive, doctors began digging into the patients’ history. What they found blew the case wide open, so to speak.

The doctors were able to link their temporary blindness to cell phone use before bed.

One of the women refused to stop checking her phone before bed even after the connection was made.

An article in the New England Journal of Medicine sheds some light on exactly how nighttime cell phone use causes the condition.

Both women checked their phones while lying on their side – as many people do. This position leads to one eye being focused on the screen while the other is fully or partially blocked by the pillow.

Thus, one eye adapts to the light from the phone while the other adjusts to the dark. When the cell phone is switched off, the brain gets confused and wonders why one eye is adjusted for “daytime” while the other is adjusted for night.

It’s a recipe for temporary blindness – and eventually, permanent eye damage.

Surprised? Don’t be.

The blue light emitted from cell phones is a lot more damaging than many people realize.

This exposure is a relatively new phenomenon. It’s only in the past 20 years or so that LED screens have become popular in the home.

Originally, many people – even eye doctors – didn’t see much of an issue. But now the severity of the damage caused by long nighttime exposure to blue light is becoming clear as patients are presenting with alarming rates of eye deterioration.

One eye doctor says that some of his 35-year-old patients have eye lenses so cloudy due to nighttime blue light exposure that they resemble those of 75-year-olds.

To make matters worse, the potential damage goes far beyond the eyes. Health experts at Harvard confirm the link between blue light and several types of cancer, diabetes, heart disease and obesity.
That’s a high price to pay to play Angry Birds before sleep, don’t you think?

It’s not clear exactly why blue light has such far-reaching health effects, but doctors are learning more and more every day.

So maybe it’s not such a bad idea to leave your phone on the other side of the room before you call it a night.
