Avoiding exposure to electromagnetic radiation is a human rights issue

Forwarded from our colleague, Dr. Diane Schou, who is EHS and lives relatively safely in Green Bank, West Virginia, USA.

PBS will broadcast about Green Bank, WV - TOMORROW, Tuesday, September 13, 2011, in the evening, during the BBC s 'World News America'.

I was told the program ends with 'Niki' stating about she did not either know about or believe electromagnetic radiation sensitivity until she got it. It is about Green Bank. I do know something about me is on it. I hope it is good and will help in the health of many people, especially those who are not aware of it.

Avoiding exposure to electromagnetic radiation is a human rights issue of immense proportions. Many people disabled by electromagnetic radiation overexposure (poisoning) are being forced to leave their homes, their businesses, sometimes their families and abandon their careers, their possessions (a great financial loss), their goals, their futures, to seek refuge avoiding electromagnetic radiation.

Russian Television reports on Electromagnetic Radiation Refugees in USA

http://www.1tv.ru/news/world/188820

In West Virginia, some residents consciously abandoned some of the achievements of civilization

Some Americans do not use cell phones, computers, microwave ovens and. People claim that electromagnetic waves seriously affect their health. This disease - some experts have called hypersensitivity to any radiation. But at the official level, it is still not recognized. Where not all the fruits of civilization are good - been there.

The zone of radio silence, where within a radius of several tens of kilometers there is no mobile telephone and you will not find any establishments with Wi-Fi connection, has been established for the smooth operation of the unique radio telescope. However, over time it began to settle around people who are forced to flee from our world permeated by electromagnetic waves, because otherwise they will not survive.

Six years ago, Diana was a normal family, and no major concerns about health. She became ill a few months after near their home in Iowa has established mobile phone company tower. Started nagging headaches and swelling of the eye. One of her many instruments recording the radiation keeps track of radio disturbances in the old house. Now all around is pure, but is to include a mobile phone on the oscilloscope immediately visible races.

'For me it is very important - to show something that is not visible. I do not use these devices to figure out where to me safely, and where not, because I instantly feel where I can not be found' - said Diane Skou.

Diane s husband continues to work where they lived before, and only visits his wife in a new house in which they will ever encounter a tranquil old age, unless, of course, this does not penetrate stopped by astronomers a radio wave of civilization. But as long as the person you can call only at home or work phone. A drive up to a huge telescope on diesel-powered vehicles, because a spark from the spark plugs also cause interference.

'We had to build a huge antenna with a diameter of 100 meters to catch even the weakest signals from different objects in the universe. And all the radiators, TV stations, mobile phones and even power lines emit radio waves in the millions and millions of times greater than the strength of signals for which we hunt' - says fellow National Radio Astronomy Observatory Felix Lokmen.

Science Lab is located in a special shielded room where the windows several layers of wire mesh and special insulating case for most conventional microwave oven.

In the house of Charlie and Michelle do not have such a long time the stove, they even have a refrigerator works on gas, before entering the room, the hostess with a long stick off a special light, because otherwise starts a sharp pain in my ears. Michelle, like Diana, is almost never recognized by physicians disease - Hypersensitivity to electromagnetic and radio emission. It may not be in range of mobile or near wi-fi transmitter. She had become a recluse, getting used to life without a computer, television and even your favorite player

'For five years I did not go to restaurants, do not drive a car, because it also creates an electromagnetic field, I can not walk in your community with a dog and I had forgotten what a shopping' - says Michelle Bubnis.

Michelle wakes up at dawn and at dusk falls, as did our ancestors lived by candlelight. Their new house near the observatory planned so that all appliances are in a separate wing, which comes only head of the family.

'It s a place where I see cable TV, working at the computer. Often Michelle gives me a job that found on the Internet, and then I print it and attribute it to the result,' - says Charles Bubnis.

Charles said that would never have believed in the existence of such a disease, if not in the dense ran into her own. Now he and other victims of the ubiquitous radio struggles for official recognition of the disease, which afflicts his wife, and the creation of special areas in America, people can live without fear, that someday will again have to become refugees.
