C4ST Response to Health Canada's Safety Code 6 Myth Buster

Canadians for Safe Technology - "Health Canada's 'myth buster' vs the Truth

"On Feb 20th, 2014 Health Canada quietly released a document entitled "Busting Myths on Safety Code 6". This attempt to instill public confidence in safety exposure levels to wireless radiation is using false and unsubstantiated claims. This was again repeated on the newly released 60 day public consultation web page posted May 16th, 2014.

"Gone are the days where the public will accept you are safe just because Health Canada says you are....Canadians and scientists want and deserve proof with an open and transparent review inclusive of the current evidence showing biological harm from wireless radiation.

"C4ST and experts from around the world have come together to provide the real facts around the specific points Health Canada addresses in their Myth Buster document. Here it is . . .

Israel Wi-Fi Breakthroughs: TV Documentary, School Ban

O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

"Wi-Fi health advocates were exultant today at news that an Israeli TV documentary titled "How We are Killing Ourselves--Wireless Radiation" won a high rating and Haifi ordered Wi-Fi removed from all schools.

"The 30-minute documentary about the "epidemic of Electro-Sensitivity" (ES) aired at 9 p.m. April 12 and "received the highest rating of the day," according to Dafna Tachover, an attorney with offices in Israel and New York.

"She provided a link to the show to Wi-Fi health advocates in other countries noting that while the video is in Hebrew there are some interviews in English. [7'42" and 11'20"].

"Tachover said the director planned to do 10 minutes on ES as part of a film about the diseases of the 21st century but after working with health advocates "understood the extent of the problem and the lie and how important it is to give an uncompromising warning to the public." It was then decided to do 30 minutes mainly on ES and Wi-Fi in schools. . . .

"Said Tachover: "Electro-Sensitivity is an epidemic and not three percent of the population. We are now in the double digits in terms of ES. The public must be told. Wi-Fi in schools is a disaster and as a person who spends two to four hours every day on the phone with people and children who got sick, with many contemplate committing suicide, I urge you all to be uncompromising. The truth, and all of it must be told. Continued good luck to us all and thanks to anyone out there who stands up to evil and stupidity."

Haifa municipality disconnects Wi-Fi in kindergartens and schools

The mayor of Haifa (in Israel) ordered to disconnect Wi-Fi in schools and kindergartens - until examining the safety of Wi-Fi thoroughly

The third largest city in Israel has ordered immediate disconnect of WiFi in Kindergartens and Schools

" . . . This week, in coordination with the head of the city's education system, Ilana Truck, Yahav ordered to disconnect immediately the Wi-Fi in kindergartens and schools in Haifa until a thorough examination of the subject is done. These days the education system is preparing to gradually install wired system as an alternative in all education system in the city. These will be installed in the first stage in classrooms where pupils learn for the final exams that force use of computers, so they won't be harmed from the disconnect. The teachers in elementary schools in the city took on themselves to load every evening the studies material from the internet, so that pupils are not exposed and their studies won't be harmed. . . .

Danger from Electromagnetic Fields - The Lancet

J.B. Sibbison - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 1990

"It was reported in 1990 that the draft EPA document was changed to remove the initial recommendation to classify lower frequency EMF as a "probable" human carcinogen and RF as a "possible" human carcinogen. Part of the rationale at the EPA for dealing with industrial pollutants and cancer links was that "We don't want to scare the public."

"The article in The Lancet was written by someone claiming to be the "public relations man" at the EPA."

Kit Weaver

"Government officials in Washington tend to play down or even suppress news linking industrial pollutants to cancer. When I was a public relations man at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), their rationale, as explained to me, was always the same: "We don't want to scare the public". In consequence, the average citizen must usually rely for such information on leaks to the press or the enterprise of investigative reporters. Paul Brodeur of the New Yorker magazine, for one, has been calling to public attention the association between cancer and electromagnetic fields from power lines. . .

Wi-Fi Now Confab Bars Press; FCC Commissioner Told

O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

"The Wi-Fi Now 2016 conference April 19-21 in Tysons Corner, Va., after giving O'Dwyer's press credentials, has withdrawn them after being told O'Dwyer's would raise health issues related to Wi-Fi, cellphones and other radiation sources.

"The press boycott poses a problem for Jessica Rosenworcel, Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission, who is to give a "Fireside Chat" Thursday, April 21 from 11 to 11:30 a.m. at the Sheraton Tysons Corner Hotel. . . .

"Such a boycott should not be allowed in America. An O'Dwyer staffer should be able to cover the Rosenworcel talk and ask questions. . . .

"Having been shut out of "the world's first Wi-Fi conference," health advocates have created "Wired Health Now 2016" which will run in cyberspace on the same three days as Wi-Fi Now on the O'Dwyer website.

"Dozens of participants have been lined up who have already submitted texts that have links to scientific studies, YouTubes, testimony to government groups, etc. Technicians who have measured radiation levels in New York City apartments will present their findings.

"Topics will include actions by citizens groups demanding removal of Wi-Fi from classrooms and libraries; actions by government bodies in the U.K., France, Canada, Russia, Israel and other countries limiting use of Wi-Fi and warning about the dangers they present; lawsuits asking for monetary damages because of Wi-Fi; citizens groups protesting plans by Google and others to blanket the earth with Wi-Fi emitting radiation; use of wireless "smart" utility meters, and coverage of the failure of mainstream media to pay much attention to health issues and Wi-Fi, cellphones, cell towers, and other sources of radiation. . . .


Here are some of the presenters at the the Wi-Fi conference.  Notice the Federal Communications Commissioner.  A cozy relationship between the companies and the regulator, it appears.  The FCC in the US is comparable to Industry Canada.

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

O'Dwyers - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

"Maria 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 Sun and The Province, she notes, expressing the hope for more such articles. Plant's letter in its entirety is below. . .

Military and marine life

Is electro magnetic radiation from military radar destroying the coral reef near Kauai?

Representatives from Kauai's conservation community recently met with representatives from the Pacific Missile Range Facility to discuss concerns that electromagnetic radiation coming from the high-powered radar and antennas could be the cause of coral's decline.

PMRF has about 20 radar towers on North Kauai. They work by bouncing electromagnetic radiation off of things -- that's how they detect objects.

Electromagnetic radiation is composed of waves -- just as light is, except that electromagnetic radiation isn't visible to the human eye. According to scientific models, the radiation covers much of the northwest part of the island.

"If we could see the radiation like we can see light, the entire island would be lit up 24/7," Lilley said. "That's how much we're exposed to every day."
