The israeli newspaper "Haaretz"
reported on the microwave bomb, while
wondering - will the US use it or not? While they refer to
electronic systems only, it is very obvious they ignore the
of frying people. As Dr. Hyland has already indicated, the
of electronic devices is recognized while human sensitivity,
much greater, is ignored when discussing about EMR.
The only thing left for us is to hope for
the soldiers that they won't

waves do not hurt humans" ? Did they suddenly find the
evidence that proves that people are indifferent to this radiation?

mast causes TV interference
People living in a Gloucestershire town
are furious after a new
communications mast blacked out their televisions.
The Tetra mast at Dursley was switched
on last week for tests - but
residents have complained about a loss of TV signals ever
is the new communications system for the police force, aimed
replacing radio. Communications company O2 has admitted the
being caused by the new base station.
O2 admits the mast is at fault But the
company says it is transmitting within frequencies
given by the Radiocommunications Agency. The two groups are
now in discussions to
decide who will pay for the problem to be corrected.
The government insists the masts are safe,
but residents are concerned
about their health implications.
Graham Morgan said: "Obviously something
has been omitted from it
because it is reaching here and blocking the aerial - I am
concerned for our health."
Anti-Tetra campaigner Lynne Edmunds has
been monitoring radiation levels
in the town. She said: "Before, I did not find any sign
close to the masts or close to the houses. "But in the
last week I have
been finding spots of radiation."

devices will be "imperceptible" to the wearer.

Benetton is not alone in implementing this
technology. Gillette has already purchased 500 million of
devices and starting in July will imbed them in shaving cream
