Residents ‘shocked’ at surprise appearance of 66ft mobile phone mast
United Kingdom Created: 22 Sep 2014
Residents have hit out at the unannounced arrival of a 66ft mobile phone mast that towers above their homes.

The metal structure was erected in Welwyn Garden City along Howlands on September 2 after an O2 mast at the nearby QE2 Hospital was decommissioned, which would have meant mobile phone users’ reception would have suffered.

But householders are unhappy with the temporary telecommunications rig, with one describing it as an “abomination”.

He said: “They just turned up and put it here. The council want them to take it down. We were never told what was happening.

“We didn’t know what it was until they put the top section up.”

Another neighbour, who also would only be quoted on the condition of anonymity, said: “I was shocked when I saw it.”

However other Howlands residents were more sympathetic to the mast, and did not mind its surprise appearance.

Welwyn Hatfield Council is investigating as it has been erected on land it owns, and hopes to get it removed.

A spokeswoman for the council said: “We were made aware of it [last] Friday.

“It’s an O2 mast. We have been out and inspected it and we are investigating it with a view to having it removed.”

She added: “Discussions are currently ongoing with O2.”

Phone companies have emergency powers to erect telefonica sites when they have decommissioned facilities.

It is unknown if the temporary mast is active, as construction workers were interrupted while they were working on it.

An O2 spokesman told the Welwyn Hatfield Times it was working with the borough to address issues raised by residents.

He said: “We are having to decommission a site on the roof of the nearby QE2 Hospital and to ensure we maintain coverage for our customers in the area, we have erected a temporary site at Howlands while we seek a permanent solution.

“We have had a number of comments from the local council and are working with the council to address these.”

Internationally-acclaimed biochemist calls for action against Smart Meters, WiFi in schools & baby monitors
USA Created: 22 Sep 2014
Professor Martin Pall is the Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University - He has been studying environmental medicine and chronic illnesses for nearly 15 years and has received eight international honours for his work.

In this short presentation, Prof. Pall lays to rest the misconception that non-ionising radiation needs to cause heating to cause biological damage – by explaining that pathological mechanisms for wireless harm begin with Voltage-Gated Calcium Channel (VGCC) activation at non-thermal levels. He concludes by calling for Wi-Fi in schools, Smart Meters and wireless baby monitors to be “abolished”.

As Prof. Pall discusses, electromagnetic radiation from wireless technologies is especially harmful when pulsed – as is the case with Smart Meters which can emit up to 190,000 pulses of RF-radiation per day from each meter. The UK’s heavily out-dated public RF exposure thresholds, however, make no allowance for the effects of these extremely bio-active emissions, meaning that if you use wireless devices, your health is at risk from the effects which Prof. Pall describes.

A Refuge! Offer to Australian EMR/EHS sufferers!
Australia Created: 22 Sep 2014
I am in a pretty desperate situation at the moment. I am 49 years old and have severe EHS cannot live in the city as it is unbearable. I am a prisoner in my own home and cannot go outside for any longer than a half hour when in the city and even then I have to run like a rat in a maze to avoid the phone tower locations. Prior to this condition arising, I had 40 years straight of chronic insomnia. Immediately after getting rid of the insomnia, this EHS developed. My condition has driven me to contemplating suicide almost daily as there is no escape from these phone towers.

I was forced to move to the country and was lucky enough that my father had a cottage in the hills that has none, or extremely limited phone coverage. I can live here without any problems from phone towers. The land that the cottage is on is crown land and adjoins our titled land and has been used by our family for over 150 years as one block. It is located outside of Wangaratta Victoria in the King Valley. There are wineries and all sorts of other things in the area on the other side of the mountain. There are towns within 30 min drive.

We entered an agreement to buy the crown land that adjoins our land and put a deposit on the land. Then it got complicated and the DEPI decided that they did not want to go through with the sale and are talking about demolishing the cottage where I live and taking the land. They are in breach of contract but we are having a great deal of problems getting justice. This is possibly one of the few places in the world where I can live and still run my business. So if I am evicted I am going to be devastated as my whole life has been completely destroyed, yet again by big corporations that work in collusion with government for their own self interests.

I do not consent to being irradiated every day all day for someone else’s profit.

So here is what I want to do. I want to bring lots of people with the same condition as me to this property and declare it as a sanctuary for EHS sufferers. I want people who are prepared to defend our rights and stand up to the government and demand that we be given this one area where we can be left alone and not be irradiated. I want this area declared as a sanctuary where telcos cannot infringe.

We have vast tracts of land that is completely owned by us and cannot be taken away. It is beautiful countryside with plenty of trees and much scope for secluded living. My father is willing to let people come here and build their own cottages, grow their own food and put in a little bit of farm work to earn their keep. There is some work in the surrounding districts with various farms like vineyards. There may be some work for people who have website or IT experience, but I cannot promise this as my business has been devastated by my condition.

If there are some people with legal experience, that would be a real bonus as we are going to need them to oppose any phone towers that they may be planning to build near here in the future. We can organise temporary accommodation in sheds etc while they build their huts. Yes the immediate accommodation is rough, but we have no other choice. There will be some normal bedrooms for those that get here first and appear to be easy to live with. We do not really want to have political extremists of either persuasion here and would prefer people who are happy, easy to get along with, and are positive even though they are in a bad situation. We will understand if you are angry about your situation, but we want to make the best of what we have and enjoy the company of good people.

This will not be a farm full of hippies that sit around all day banging drums and smoking weed. I have nothing against weed smokers, and what they do in their own hut is their business. We intend to have a gym, (hopefully MMA, boxing, BJJ, yoga, gymnastics), communal kitchen, internet hub and other features as the need arises. These things need to be built so we need to have people that want to put in a couple of hours of work per day in whatever capacity you are able. We are not made of money so things will get built as the finances allow.

If you have a business that runs on the internet and would like to move it here, we can work that out, I did. If you have a healing business, meditation, yoga, massage or some other interest that you would like to set up here, you would be more than welcome. We are not looking to make a profit, however if there are people that have an entrepreneurial spirit and can come up with a good concept we are all ears.

We need people here now, today, this week. Even if you can come only for a couple of days or a week to have a look around and we can get to know you, let us know. The showdown with the government is going to happen in two weeks and we need people who are prepared to stand up for all of our freedoms and our right to be free from radiation. You can bring caravans, tents, vans whatever, and if the government doesn’t like it, too bad, they started this.

If interested, send me an email with your details about yourself (interests, experience, abilities, ambitions, likes dislikes etc) and contact info to:
radiationrefuge@abuconga.com

You are welcome to just drop in and say hello, we need all the support we can get.
Cheers

iPhone 6 SAR: Radiation Levels and Separation Distance
USA Created: 20 Sep 2014
For both Apple iPhone 6 models, the SAR level for the head is 1,18. When using a body-worn accessory to keep the phone five millimeters from the body, the SAR level is 1.18 for the iPhone 6 and 1.19 for the iPhone 6 Plus. (1, 2) Thus, the minimum separation distance that the phones should be kept from the body is approximately two-tenths of an inch (i.e., 5 millimeters).

Like most cell phones, both new iPhone models have several transmitters that can simultaneously emit microwave radiation, which includes cellular, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth radiation. When all these transmitters are turned on, the SAR value is 1.58 for the iPhone 6 and 1.59 for the iPhone 6 Plus. (1, 2) These levels are very close to the legal limit which is 1.60. To reduce exposure to microwave radiation, turn off any transmitters not in use.

What does this information mean to the consumer?

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires all cell phone models to be tested for their Specific Absorption Rate or SAR. The SAR is a measure of the maximum amount of microwave radiation absorbed by the head or the body. It is measured in a laboratory using an artificial model of a large adult male with different fluids to simulate human tissue. The SAR, which is measured in watts per kilogram, represents the maximum amount of energy absorbed in any one gram of tissue in the test model. Phones sold in the U.S. typically range in SAR values from about 0.20 up to the 1.60 legal limit. (3, 4)

The SAR test, adopted in 1996 by the FCC, was criticized by the U.S. Government Accountability Office in 2012. (5) The test does not reflect those who currently use cell phones, nor does it correspond to the way people use them. Today many children are cell phone users -- the child’s brain absorbs twice the radiation as the adult’s brain. Moreover, the artificial head does not contain any metal (e.g., dental fillings, earrings, or eyeglass frames) which could increase the radiation absorption beyond what the laboratory-generated SAR reflects. (5)

The FCC assumes that consumers will carry their cell phones in a manufacturer-approved holder that keeps the phone a minimum distance from the body. However, people do not reliably keep their phone away from their body in a cell phone holder. For the SAR test, the FCC allows the manufacturer to choose the separation distance between the cell phone and the test model as long as consumers are informed about the minimum distance tested. Few consumers are aware of the manufacturer’s recommended minimum body separation from their cell phone because this information is often difficult to find. Thus, most consumers are in the dark about precautions they can take to keep their exposure to microwave radiation below the legal limit.

To ensure that the cell phone does not exceed the legal limit, consumers should never keep their cell phone in their pockets or next to their skin. The cell phone is not tested directly against the body because most cell phones would fail the SAR test as the radiation absorption increases dramatically when the cell phone is close to the body.

Is the legal limit sufficient to protect the cell phone user’s health?

U.S. Federal policies and practices lead the public to believe that all legally-marketed cell phones are safe, and that a cell phone's SAR doesn't matter as long as it meets the legal limit: 1.6 watts per kilogram. (3, 4)

The Environmental Working Group and other scientific experts point out that the SAR only measures the maximum microwave absorption from cell phone use that perfectly matches laboratory conditions. The SAR is not a good indicator of one’s cumulative microwave exposure under natural conditions. The evidence suggests that how one uses the phone (e.g., hands-free) and one’s cell phone carrier actually matters a great deal more than the phone’s SAR level. (4, 6, 7)

The SAR standard was developed to protect users only from the acute effects of the heat generated by microwave radiation (i.e., the thermal effect). (5) The SAR limit does not protect users from non-thermal effects of cell phone radiation.

Yet, hundreds of laboratory studies with animals and cell samples have found deleterious biologic effects from short-term exposure to low intensity cell phone radiation, including development of stress proteins, micronuclei, free radicals, DNA breakage, and sperm damage. (8) Human studies have also found that brief exposure to cell phone radiation alters brain activity and can open the blood-brain barrier which could enable any chemical toxins in the blood system to penetrate the brain. (9)

Major studies with humans have found increased cancer risk, including a three-fold increase in brain cancer among those who used wireless phones (cell phones and cordless phones) for 25 or more years. (10) Largely based upon this research, the World Health Organization in 2011 declared radiofrequency radiation possibly carcinogenic in humans (Group 2B). (11)

Other risks from cell phone use include reproductive health damage and male infertility, and neurological disorders (e.g., impaired cognitive functioning, headaches and migraines, and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder). (12, 13)

Based upon the weight of the evidence from several decades of research, many experts worldwide have signed declarations calling upon government to adopt stronger radiation standards to protect consumers from low intensity, non-thermal exposures from radiation associated with wireless communications, and to alert consumers about how to reduce their risk of harm. (14 -16)

Obesity is a 'slow motion car crash' that may bankrupt the NHS, says its chief executive
United Kingdom Created: 19 Sep 2014
Simon Stevens said obesity is causing millions to suffer life-long illness, Also revealed the NHS is spending far more on drastic weight loss surgery than trying to prevent the problem in the first place. A quarter of adults and a fifth of children are now considered obese
Next month, Mr Stevens will publish a set of plans to tackle the problem Will see NHS and private firms urged to do more to help staff lose weight.
Obesity is a ‘slow-motion car crash’ which is threatening to bankrupt the NHS, according to its chief executive.

Simon Stevens said the problem is now more deadly than smoking and causing millions to suffer life-long illness and disability.
He also revealed that – absurdly – the NHS is spending far more on drastic weight loss surgery than trying to prevent the problem in the first place.
A quarter of adults and a fifth of children are now considered obese and the rates have almost doubled in 20 years.
And figures show the NHS spends anywhere between £5 billion and £9 billion a year treating obese patients and related complications such as diabetes.

Next month, Mr Stevens will publish a set of plans to tackle the problem which will see the NHS and private firms urged to do more to help staff lose weight.
Doctors and nurses will be encouraged to be healthy role models for patients and hospitals told to ban junk food from canteens.
NHS trusts and private companies will also be urged to help staff lose weight by holding slimming classes, running clubs or just providing bike racks at work.
Mr Stevens, who took up post last April, said: ‘Obesity is the new smoking, and it represents a slow-motion car crash in terms of avoidable illness and rising health care costs.
‘If as a nation we keep piling on the pounds around the waistline, we'll be piling on the pounds in terms of future taxes needed just to keep the NHS afloat.’

Obesity Epidemic driven by Sleep deprivation and Endochrine disruption
USA Created: 18 Sep 2014
US waistlines are continuing to expand, despite obesity appearing to be reaching a plateau, data suggests.

Research suggests the average adult waist size in the US increased by more than 1in (2.5cm) between 1999 and 2012.

But figures for obesity as defined by body mass index (BMI) had changed little over the same period, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

Factors such as lack of sleep may be to blame for growing waistlines.

The researchers, led by Dr Earl Ford, analysed national data on nutrition and health in the US from 1999-2000 to 2011-12.

The study included more than 32,000 men and women over the age of 20.

The researchers found:

- Average waist circumference increased from 37.6in (95.5cm) to 38.8in (98.5cm)
- The average waist circumference for men is now 40in (101cm)
- The average waist circumference for women in now 38in (96cm)
- The average increase in men was 0.8in (2cm); in women 1.5in (3.8cm)
- Abdominal obesity (tummy fat) increased from 46.4% of the population in 1999-2000 to 54.2% in 2011-2012.

The team compared the findings with obesity data.

The researchers found obesity calculated from body mass index (BMI) did not change significantly between 2003 and 2012.

"At a time when the prevalence of obesity may have reached a plateau, the waistlines of US adults continue to expand," the researchers told the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

"The reasons for increases in waist circumference in excess of what would be expected from changes in BMI remain speculative, but several factors, including sleep deprivation, endocrine disruptors, and certain medications, have been proposed as potential explanations."

The research backs recommendations that routine measurement of waist circumference is a key step in controlling obesity.

According to NHS Choices, the risk of some health problems is affected by where body fat is stored, as well as weight.

Carrying too much fat around the middle (waist) can increase the risk of developing conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer.

Amy Thompson, senior cardiac nurse at the British Heart Foundation, said more people were carrying extra weight around the middle, including in the UK.

"This increases your risk of heart disease and stroke, but losing weight and reducing your waist size is doable," she said.

"Try cutting down on the calories and getting more active, but don't try to lose weight too quickly.

"Slow and steady weight loss - around 1-2lb [1kg] each week - is healthier."

The CDC responds to inquiry about the cellphone FAQ change
USA Created: 16 Sep 2014
Dear all,
When I heard of the CDC cellphone FAQ flop-flop, I sent off an email question to the CDC about those changes.
I didn't expect a reply but after a bit of ping-pong, the CDC did finally respond, although not really answering my questions.
See their explanation and the message trail below.

Dear Mr. Eiriksson:

Thank you for your inquiry; we apologize for the delay in responding.

The National Center for Environmental Health recently participated in a CDC-wide effort to make health information for the public easier to understand. Revision of the cell phone FAQs originally posted in June 2011 was part of that effort. After the new FAQS were posted (June 2014), questions from visitors to the website suggested that the new information reflected a change in CDC policy or recommendations about cell phone use. This was not the intent.
The FAQs underwent additional review and updates in August 2014 to ensure they reflect the latest science regarding what is known about the health effects of cell phone use.
CDC announces changes in public health policy and recommendations through publication in the peer-reviewed literature, usually accompanied by outreach to partners and a press release. We are sorry for any confusion that resulted from the plain language update.

Your Question: Dear Sir / Madam,

On june 9 the CDC amended its FAQ on cellphone use to recommend precaution:
"Along with many organizations worldwide, we recommend caution in cell phone use"

Now, suddenly, on 20 aug. that precautionary advice has been removed.
Please explain the reason for that change.

Also, on the updated FAQ the CDC now states:
"There is no scientific evidence that provides a definite answer to that question"

Please explain exactly what the CDC deems as "definitive" evidence in the context of evaluating the science on cellphone and wireless radiation. In other words: exactly how much scientific certainty of risk does the CDC require before urging precaution in using cellphones/wireless tech.?
Please also clarify why an agency tasked with disease prevention is waiting for definitive evidence.

EU regulative:Risks assessment of electromagnetic fields at the workplace, For EMPLOYERS!
United Kingdom Created: 14 Sep 2014
Directive 2013/35/EU - electromagnetic fields
of 26 June 2013 on the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to the risks arising from physical agents (electromagnetic fields) (20th individual Directive within the meaning of Article 16(1) of Directive 89/391/EEC) and repealing Directive 2004/40/EC

As stakeholders had expressed serious concerns regarding Directive 2004/40/EC, the Commission has prepared a new proposal to better address the issues and repeal the former Directive.

Objective

This Directive covers all known direct biophysical effects and other indirect effects caused by electromagnetic fields. However, the Directive currently only addresses short-term effects and does not concern possible long term effects.

Definitions

Definition of terms "electromagnetic fields", "direct biophysical effects", "indirect effects", "exposure limit values (ELVs)", "health effects ELVs", "sensory effects ELVs", "action levels (ALs)".

Contents

Risks assessment of electromagnetic fields at the workplace (if necessary including measurements and calculations, if necessary) should be carried out in line with the Framework Directive. Assessment of occupational exposure can be skipped if evaluation for the general public has already been completed and if the specific equipments is intended for the public use. The employer shall consider updating the risk assessment and the prevention measures if workers report transient symptoms in relation to their sensory/neural system.

The employer shall eliminate or reduce to a minimum the risks that arise from electromagnetic fields at the workplace in line with the principles of the Framework Directive. If relevant action levels are and relevant exposure limit values may be exceeded, the employer shall implement an action plan in order to ensure that the latter is not exceeded. Certain derogations apply to limit values.

Special attention shall be paid to workers at particular risks (pregnant, living with implanted medical devices) including individual risk assessment, where applicable.

Signs and access restrictions shall be specified and workers shall be trained and thoroughly informed.

Health surveillance shall be carried out and the findings thereof preserved.

The Commission is empowered to adopt delegated acts: technically update the Annexes containing the limit values in line with the latest scientific evidence. A non-binding practical guide shall be issued six months prior to the transposition deadline, which is of 1 July 2016.

This Directive repealed Directive 2004/40/EC (see Annex IV for reference).

The current situation in each Member State must not regress as a result of implementing this Directive.

The values are based on the recommendations of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).

Annexes

Physical quantities regarding the exposure to electromagnetic fields
Non-thermal effects exposure limit values and action levels in the frequency range from 0 Hz to 10 MHz
Thermal effects exposure limit values and action levels in the frequency range from 100 kHz to 300 GHz
Correlation table

Sensory Perspective is making a small detector
United Kingdom Created: 14 Sep 2014
Sensory Perspective, the manufacturer of "the originalElectrosmog Detector" has partnered with Crowdcube, the world'sleading Equity Investment Crowdfunding platform, to raise capital inorder to launch its new products globally".

Sensory is the FIRST company in the EMR Healthcare Sector to take this step, and to go out to the public to sell its shares for as little as a £10 investment. (Wouldn't it feel good to own shares in a company that is doing something for all of us?)

One of the reasons Sensory is raising this expansion capital is to allow it to launch an exciting new high-quality low-cost (£35) cigar-shaped detector (a red version of which is shown on Sensory's own landing page, marked "coming Soon!"). It is called Sherlock!
