Ottawa looks into safety of school Wi-Fi networks

These additional comments submitted by Blake Levitt regarding the previously published article below.

August 16, 2010. Pick of the Week #6: Clinical & Hygienic Aspects of Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields.

Dodge, CH. 1969. Clinical and Hygienic Aspects of Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields: A Review of the Soviet and Eastern European Literature. Biological Effects and Health Implications of Microwave Radiation, Symposium Proceedings, Richmond, Virginia, September 17-19, 1969 (BRH/DBE 70-2) (PB 193 898).

The early research was taken very seriously in the US and in Russia. And then it was put in a room and the door was closed during the Cold War years. This entire area was considered a threat to national security, with shades of mind control lurking in some circles, including the microwaving of the US embassy in Moscow. There were several commissions set up to investigate, including The Tri-Service Commission with reps from the Us Air Force, Army & Navy. We see the reverberations still today.

The entire thermal v. non-thermal is, and always was, a ruse and everyone knew it. The construct for that originated with the Germans during WW2, using the microwave bands to cook food in submarines that needed to stay submerged for long periods of time. Some of those scientists were brought to America after the war under Project Paper Clip -- and are still alive like Hermann Schwann who wrote the first thermal exposure standards for humans. (I wrote about it very briefly in my first book...)

Had cell phone technology never come along, the entire issue would have remained on backburners, of interest to people near broadcast towers and others made ill from emerging technologies like computers back in their day. When I got my first cell tower call in the late 1980's, early 1990's, and figured out that someone was beginning to buildout a civilian-based wireless phone system, it was obvious to anyone who knew the history of this that it meant trouble.

When the Telecom Act preempted local zoning rights in 1996, I said in lectures & writing that "The companies are nuts -- every town in the country is going to know the difference between a thermal and non-thermal effect, that the entire curtain will eventually be pulled back." (And now look at how very many more people know about this today -- including this list.) At the time the TCA was being debated on the floor of the US Senate, there were still plenty of politicians who knew that the safety issues had never been settled re: these exposures.

A bipartisan amendment that was introduced to remove Section 704's preemptive language for environmental effects and it lost by only 4 votes. People knew. They always have. It just never got enough traction because:

1. Most information was too technical.

2. The benefits of using microwaves in military, medical, and civilian applications were seen as outweighing risks. There was money to be made and information to be had... Today there is a new spin -- that medical advances can undo any damage as a way of having our cake & eating it too.

There were some problems between the American and Russian approaches to research that's kept the combined body of work from ever completely coming together. The reverberations of that are also still felt today...

Keep in mind the Louis Slesin first published Microwave News in 1983 (!), and there was plenty to write about by then. And for a good history of this, see The Microwave Debate by Nicholas Steneck (MIT Press,.1984) and Paul Brodeur's The Zapping of America (Norton, 1977) if they can still be found. It was known -- it just never got strong enough legs until 4 billion people had cell phones.

Parents fear school Wi-Fi makes kids sick

CTV.ca News

A group of parents in southern Ontario is blaming school wireless Internet networks for a slew of symptoms reportedly plaguing young children.

Dear Mr. McDowell

In your story about Wi Fi in schools: http://www.nationalpost.com/related/topics/School+board+sticks+with+amid+complaints+illnesses/3406215/story.html, Monday, Aug. 16, 2010, you have quoted Dr Krewski - Dr. Krewski said ?literally thousands? of academic papers have indicated wireless technology is safe, although further study into some biological effects is warranted.

Although I have seen a great deal of information that shows significant harm caused by microwave radiation and I am aware of research that has failed to find effects (mostly industry sponsored research), I am not aware of any research that states that microwave radiation is safe.

Would you ask Dr. Krewski to produce the most relevant information which proves without doubt that microwave radiation is safe and does not cause significant biological effects to humans, animals, birds and the environment?

If Dr. Krewski fails to provide the actual proof that microwave radiation is completely safe, would you please advise your readers that their health and safety is at risk from wireless devices?

These two links - http://www.feb.se/EMFguru/EMF/genotoxic/Genotoxic-EMR-paper.htm and http://www.bioinitiative.org and the information provided within those web sites, should be able to persuade you that Dr. Krewski is ignoring the harm caused by microwave radiation and is probably providing you and your readers with false information. An investigation of his background, his funding and his ties to the wireless industry should reveal a story that your readers will be interested in.

The two attached documents indicate harm that can be caused by microwave radiation.

Yours sincerely

Martin Weatherall
