Allergic to TV and mobile phones: Is 'electromagnetic hypersensitivity' real?
Australia Created: 27 Apr 2015
"Every single aspect of my life has been destroyed - Every single aspect".

Bruce Evans has been living with electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) since 2007. While there is no medical diagnosis for the condition, it is characterised by a range of symptoms which sufferers attribute to exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF), particularly those caused by broadcasting devices. The most common symptoms include dermatological symptoms, nausea, headaches, and tinnitus.

"No one understands our condition or the situation we're in," he said. "It's an invisible sort of thing. You can't see what’s happening to us - you can only see our reaction to it.”

"People just don’t understand and that leaves you very much on your own."

1). Smartphones making children borderline autistic, warns expert
Young children today are less able to read human emotions than pupils four decades ago, an expert has said
Children struggle to read emotions and are less empathetic than a generation ago because they spend too much time using tablets and smartphones, a leading psychiatrist has warned.
Iain McGilchrist said children as young as five were less able to read facial expressions because of too much interaction with technology.
He added that he had evidence that more pupils were displaying borderline "autistic" behaviour. Dr McGilchrist, a former Oxford literary scholar who retrained in medicine, said he had heard of increasing numbers of teachers who had to explain to their pupils how to make sense of human faces.

Will an app to track your sleep guarantee restful nights - or turn you into an exhausted, neurotic wreck?
United Kingdom Created: 21 Apr 2015
Diary of an INSOMNI-APP: Will an app to track your sleep guarantee restful nights - or turn you into an exhausted, neurotic wreck?
How much sleep do you get? Eight hours a night? Five? Never enough? According to UK charity The Sleep Council, almost a third of the population get by on between five and six hours, and the majority of us survive on under seven hours.

Meanwhile, a third of adults experience periods of insomnia, and one in ten Britons take medication to help them sleep.

It’s fair to say the subject of shut-eye has become something of a modern obsession. So it’s not surprising that in our technological age, the sleep tracker has become the gadget du jour.

This device (or mobile phone app) uses a motion-sensor to measure movement in bed, and therefore determine how much sleep we’ve had and the quality of it.

But are they useful aids in the battle against sleep disorders – or a fad aimed at tapping into the paranoia of the worried well?

I decided to put the most popular tracker, Sleep Cycle, to the test over a normal week where I got stressed out, went to bed ridiculously early one evening, ate too much, and drank too much one night.

I charted how I felt I slept, and my energy levels the next day, and compared those with how the tracker claimed I slept. The app gives a sleep-quality score for each night, as a percentage, based on the quality of sleep it calculates you’ve had. The shorter and more disrupted sleep is, the lower the score.

This is a figure unique to the app, and not a medically recognised test result (for a full explanation, see the panel top right).

Before I started, I spoke to independent sleep expert Dr Neil Stanley about exactly what constitutes a good night’s sleep. ‘There is a misconception that an ideal night is a single uninterrupted eight-hour stretch,’ he explained. ‘In fact, we sleep in cycles of about 90 minutes.’

‘Going to bed and getting up at the same time successfully maintains this. Certain triggers also signal bedtime. Dark stimulates the body to release the hormone melatonin, which makes you feel sleepy. Melatonin levels peak in late evening.

‘As we wake, the brain secretes another hormone called cortisol, which causes blood pressure and core temperature to rise.

‘Many people get stressed out that they wake up a lot during the night but really this is completely normal. Realising this is often enough to combat perceived insomnia.’

So, armed with this information, I set about tracking my sleep for a week..

Former CDC chief calls for Precautionary Principle on wireless radiation
Finland Created: 19 Apr 2015
Excerpted from Dariusz Leszczynski's latest blog: Dr Portier was the Director of the US National Center for Environmental Health and the US Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry. Prior to CDC, Dr. Portier was the NIEHS Associate Director and Associate Director of the National Toxicology Program and has over 250 scientific publications.

...

Precautionary Principle states that “Recourse to the precautionary principle presupposes that potentially dangerous effects deriving from a phenomenon, product or process have been identified, and that scientific evaluation does not allow the risk to be determined with sufficient certainty.” In addition, they state that action should be “proportional to the chosen level of protection” and “In some cases, the right answer may be not to act or at least not to introduce a binding legal measure.” Thus, invoking the precautionary principle does not immediately mean actions should be taken. In my support for the resolution, I will demonstrate that a careful review of the scientific literature demonstrates there are potentially dangerous effects from RF EMF and that the data is insufficient to allow the risk to be determined with certainty.

Canada Post Removes Wi-Fi to provide barrier free access to their buildings to those suffering from EHS.

"As a customer-focused company, we are very much aware of the need to provide barrier-free access to our post offices and dealerships. We have established specific guidelines to ensure the accessibility of our facilities. The EHS issue is not one about which many customers have expressed concern; however, we very much want to ensure everyone can visit our post offices easily and without discomfort. There are no plans at this time to install WiFi systems in our post offices on a national scale."

Parliamentary Health Committee (HESA) Investigation into Safety Code 6, 2015
Canada Created: 13 Apr 2015
Highlights From HESA Hearings Day 1:
Health Canada admits studies show harm at levels below Safety Code 6.

Health Canada ignores the scientific research; its review is subject to bias and incorrect conclusions.

Health Canada and Industry Canada ignore recommendations from the 2010 Health Committee “offer to provide information, including awareness sessions on exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation.”

In its “fact sheet”, comparing Canada vs. other countries, Health Canada omits countries representing 1.2 billion people with safety levels below Safety Code 6.

Health Canada’s statements to the committee conflict with statements made under oath in Quebec Superior Court on Feb 13th, 2013.

Health Canada admits there are no studies regarding the cumulative effects of several devices from wireless radiation.

Health Canada ignores the 2010 Health Committee recommendation to “ensure that it has a process in place to receive and respond to reports of adverse reactions to electromagnetic radiation emitting devices.”

Health Canada resists the request to have a database that physicians may be asked to look at any kind of possible cause and effect on new cancers among people?.

Scientific expert calls for a special category for pregnant women.

Health Canada Advises That 36 of the 140 Studies Submitted by C4ST WERE Included in the 2015 Safety Code 6 – BUT WHERE?

Farmers face threat from campaign to slash mobile mast rents. Comment below!
United Kingdom Created: 13 Apr 2015
Farmers face threat from campaign to slash mobile mast rents
Mobile operators mount campaign to be treated like utilities, paying £240 rather than £7,500 per year
Farmers face a threat to hundreds of millions of pounds in extra income rom their land, as mobile operators mount a campaign to slash the rent they pay for mast sites.

A coalition of all four of Britain’s mobile operators – EE, O2, Three and Vodafone – is urging the Government to intervene to give them the similar rights to energy and water companies to build out their networks.

According to a report commissioned by the operators from Deloitte and seen by The Telegraph it could mean the average annual rent for a rural mobile mast plummet Urban landlords could also take a big hit if the mobile industry gets its way. They charge an average of £9,200.

It would mean total savings for the mobile operators of up to £271m, according to Deloitte.

Such a collapse would come as a heavy blow to many farmers and other landowners who rely on payments from mobile operators to supplement the main income. Many have already seen the payments dwindle in recent years following the 2010 merger of Orange and T-Mobile and deals between competing operators to share masts. Farmers are also struggling as a result of tumbling commodities prices.

The operators nevertheless argue the charges they face are unfair compared with utilities companies, given mobile coverage is increasingly seen as an essential utility.

Last year the Government applied heavy pressure to extract an agreement from each operator to cover at least 90pc of Britain’s landmass by 2017. The proportion of land where all four rivals provide a signal is also due to increase, from 69pc to 85pc.

The deal with Government requires new masts to be built in far-flung locations where the investment was previously judged unjustified because few customers would use them. ing from £7,500 to less than £240. Many farms host more than one mast.

Urban landlords could also take a big hit if the mobile industry gets its way. They charge an average of £9,200.

It would mean total savings for the mobile operators of up to £271m, according to Deloitte.

The Wireless Industry Is NOT a Utility! And Will Never Be ONE.
Anyone can easily live without it.
It does mankind Loads of Harm, I have still to find the GOODS!
So, Utility, No Way.!
They are PRIVATE COMPANIES ONLY IN IT FOR THE AMBLE PROFIT, with Shareholders, who want results, in the form of cash every year.
