Last Battle for Radiation Fighter

02:00 AM May. 28, 2003 PT

People who believe that cell phones cause cancer and other illnesses
just lost one of their most ardent scientific supporters. Dr. Neil
Cherry, a New Zealand biophysicist who spent much of his career
collecting research papers that showed radiation emitted from cell
phones is harmful to users, and who testified on behalf of a cancer
patient in a high-profile lawsuit against the industry, died on Saturday
of motor neuron disease. He was 57 years old.

His supporters, including environmental health advocates and ordinary
citizens who believed they got sick from using devices that emitted
electromagnetic radiation, mourned his death on the Internet. "Despite
his illness he has been working hard on his EMR research and also,
despite his handicaps caused by the illness, assisting as much as he can
to help people like me who have been badly affected by the emissions of
RF (radio frequencies)," said one reader of the EMF-Omega-News
newsletter (http://free-page.net/web/EMF-News.htm).

"The world has been a better place for his living with such integrity
and courage and fighting for the health of the people regardless of the
communications industry trying to discredit him," the reader said.

Cherry and his colleagues were dealt a blow last year when a Baltimore
judge threw out
(http://www.wired.com/news/wireless/0,1382,55474,00.html) a closely
watched $800 million lawsuit against the cell-phone industry. Judge
Catherine Blake said that Dr. Christopher Newman -- who claimed his
brain cancer was caused by frequent use of his cell phone -- did not
have sufficient evidence to receive a trial. If the case had been allowed
to move forward, it would have opened up the industry to more lawsuits.

The outcome of the Newman case, however, did not discourage Cherry, an
associate professor of environmental health at Lincoln University in New
Zealand, from continuing his research and proselytizing about the
dangers of EMR waves around the world.

In 1994, Cherry was invited by a local primary school to present
information he had gathered on the possible health effects a proposed
cell-phone tower would have on the children at the school. He found that
the tower emitted radiation at a frequency that would be harmful to a
small child. His recommendation that the school kill the proposal was
adopted by parents and officials who voted to reject construction of the
tower on campus.

Cherry spent many years and a great deal of his own money traveling the
world collecting university papers on EMR research. He attended numerous
meetings of environmental activists and presented research showing that
almost all radio-wave-emitting technologies -- radar, power lines,
microwave ovens, radio- and television-station towers, cell towers and
cell phones -- pose some kind of risk to people.

His position was that ideally, people would not use cell phones but
would rely on only land-line communications. "We (humans) are very good
conductors (of cellular transmissions), so most of the cell-phone signal
goes through us, and very little actually goes to the cell site," Cherry
said at a microwave-radiation conference

While the long-term effects of cell-phone use are not known, the New
England Journal of Medicine and Journal of the American Medical
Association both ruled out infrequent and short-term cell-phone use --
up to five years -- as a cause of brain cancer. The U.S. Food and Drug
Administration and the World Health Organization have said no evidence
exists that cell-phone use is harmful or beneficial to a user's health.


Neil Cherry - I lost a dear friend
Dear fellow fighters,

I also lost a dear friend with the death of Neil. Not only, that we
encountered ourselves occasionally on congresses, no, he was also some
years ago with his woman with me in Luebeck for some days on a visit. We
have visited not only the city; he was also in our clinic area in order
to inform himself about our experiments concerning the electro sensitivity.

We discussed much and extensively the situation at that time, which
changed since then until today only in the principle, that Neil's
activities among others picked out for discussion the problem as a
central theme world-wide. I remind only on the discussion concerning ICNIRP.

We, everyone, have suffered a large loss and should preserve the memory
of him. He advocated us with very much courage and this we may not
forgot - risked also much.

New Electrical Pollution booklet online

Hi Klaus: Have just been made aware of a new booklet on EHS produced by
C.U.R.E. which can be accessed online at:

Glancing through it I note that the entry in the three page section
toward end "Chronological Order of Recent Events Concerning EMF's and
Ground/Earth Currents" is "2001--Spain. High Court Decision: A Sentence
Admits For The First Time, That Electromagnetic waves Are A Health

Help and advice sought

Dear Fellows:

As you might know, residents in Berkeley, California have been fighting
fiercely against Sprint in the past 7 months. Now, the Planning
Department of Berkeley and Sprint have come up with a new trick. They
are asking to bring a 3rd party RF engineer to review Sprint's
application (and most probably) approve it. So, in the Public Hearing,
they can refer to the so called "independent" review by the 3rd party engineer.

The Planning Department does not tell us who the 3rd party engineer is.
All we know is that the Planning Department will select an engineer and
Sprint will pay the expenses.

Now, the Planning Department is telling us that if we have technical
inquiries to be investigated, we should submit them to the that
department. Then, they will pass our questions to the 3rd party engineer
so that they will answer them.

The entire thing is a sham. But, we would like to ask you to provide us
with the toughest technical questions that can be asked. Then, we will
pass them to the Planning Department.

So, please let us know what questions we can ask from the 3rd party
engineer. Come up with the toughest and most esoteric questions.

Thank you,


Buying a house next to a substation

Could anyone give me an adivce on this matter below:

I have bought a house in a small town recently, and soon realised that
an electronic substation was just behind the house. The distance between
the station and the house is only 2-3 meters. It is a small station and
it says on the wall--"11kV". Can this station cause a damage to our

Yui from UK

No follows the OT themes:

A Nuclear Road of No Return

Bush's bid for new kinds of weapons could put the world on a suicidal

May 13, 2003 Los Angeles Times, by Robert Scheer


Informant: Carol Wolman

White House asks for authority to develop new low yield nuclear weapons

Statement of Administration Policy
H.R. 1588, National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2004

Low-Yield Nuclear Weapons. The Administration appreciates the support
for research of low yield nuclear weapons in section 3111. However,
maintaining the prohibition on development will hinder the ability of
our scientists and engineers to explore technical options to deter
national security threats of the 21st century. A complete repeal of
section 3136 of the FY 1994 National Defense Authorization Act is
needed. This in no way would usurp Congress's right to authorize and
appropriate the funds necessary to develop and build new or modified
nuclear weapons should this or a future President determine that such
weapons were in the supreme interest of the United States.

US finds WMD evidence -- in Maryland Guardian Unlimited [UK]

"The good news for the Pentagon yesterday was that its investigators had
finally unearthed evidence of weapons of mass destruction, including 100
vials of anthrax and other dangerous bacteria. The bad news was that the
stash was found, not in Iraq, but fewer than 50 miles from Washington,
near Fort Detrick in the Maryland countryside. " (05/28/03)
