Open letter to Editor Steve Bradley, Sutton Coldfield News paper
I would like to reply to the statements made by T-mobile with regards to the World Health Organisation statement in the local paper on 27th October, 2006
Please read the enclosed open letter to the newspaper.
Base- station emissions and health concerns
I would like to thank the Sutton Coldfield
News for following the
campaign against phone masts and for reporting the latest developments
campaign which is a very serious global issue. I would also like
the many people from Sutton Coldfield and people as far as
I am now a member of the EMF Discussion Group
(EMF-DG) which is chaired
I was invited to give the EMF-DG a
‘base-station emissions and health concerns’ on 16th
October, 2006 at the Health Protection Agency in
I presented evidence of electro-sensitive symptoms and the cancer clusters, including MND in the hamlet of Wishaw and spoke about the enormous impact this has had on my life and the lives of family, friends and neighbours. I talked about how I started the campaign after developing breast cancer in 2001 at the age of 38 which I believe could have been be due to living 100 metres from a 22.5m T-Mobile phone mast for over seven years.
I also presented evidence gathered over the last five years and informed the EMF-DG that I am now networked at the highest level and am linked up with doctors, scientists, politicians, the media and campaigners throughout the UK and the world. I demonstrated that it is a global issue with some countries taking dramatic steps to remove phone masts and many others operating at different guidelines. I also provided INDEPENDENT scientific evidence which provided statistics showing evidence that people and animals are suffering with symptoms at levels below the current ICNIRP guidelines, this backs up the health complaints made by the public worldwide.
You can view the full presentation on the enclosed websites which also includes a “hard hitting” report from American scientist Dr George Carlo, he carried out over $28.5 million dollars worth of research paid for by the phone industry; I also delivered a copy of his report to the EMF-DG.
I am also a trustee for the EM Radiation Research Trust in the UK www.radiationresearch.org , founder of SCRAM www.scram.uk.com and a member of the h.e.s.e. UK steering group www.hese-project.org , take a look at the impressive list of highly regarded worldwide experts and scientists who have recently accepted the invitation to join h.e.s.e. UK, we hope this group will become a powerful alternative to the current authorities such as WHO and ICNIRP.
H.e.s.e-UK will be able to offer an alternative Independent point of view with scientific support as backup.
Take a look at the enclosed informal
photograph taken of the steering
group at a meeting earlier this year with
I would also like to add my support to the
campaign to stop the mast on

Questions for T-mobile, could John Shaughnessy explain why you continue to reassure the public that phone masts are safe when your own parent company
Effects on central nervous system

Impairments of certain brain functions.
Loss of memory and cognitive function
Aren’t you part of the powerful communications industry? Surly you must share this type of important information and research. However, the report has only just come to light as it was never translated into English.
ECOLOG called for an immediate reduction for the guidelines recommended by ICNIRP, which is a different tune to the one T-Mobile seem to keep singing to the public with claims of safety, I suggest you examine your own research. I have now presented the ECOLOG report to the UK Health Protection Agency and invited them to review the papers as ECOLOG seemed to reach a different conclusion to the Stewart report which was released in the same year 2000 six years ago!
Release funding to translate further research that is available in Russian and German languages, it’s unbelievable that in the 21st century important research is not
reviewed or taken into account due to language barriers.
John Shaughnessy also pointed out that the
World Health Organisation
(WHO) stated that there was no evidence of any harm to human health
low-powered base stations. I recently communicated via e-mail
leader for the EMF project for the World Health Organisation; I decided
just two questions. Read the answers which I have highlighted in red
from Dr T
E van Deventer on 9th October, 2006. Dr van Deventer
charge of the EMF project for WHO, Radiation and Environmental Health
Public Health and Environment, World Health Organisation,
1) Are you guaranteeing phone masts are totally safe?
1) It is not possible to prove that any physical agent is without risk, and therefore I cannot answer positively to your first question.
2) Will the ICNIRP guidelines protect electrosensitive people?
2) The second question relates to ICNIRP guidelines. You may want to ask this question to the Commission directly.
The enclosed answers from WHO doesn’t offer any level of confidence or reassurance?
I have since directed question number two to
the ICNIRP committee and
as usual I’ve received no reply. They say silence speaks a1000
words! I am looking forward to meeting Dr van Deventer
end of November at a conference at the EU in
I ended my letter to WHO and my presentation to the EMF Discussion group with the following statement, as this sums up the seriousness of this campaign.
Read the following paragraph by Dr Robert O. Becker, M.D. he was twice nominated for the Nobel Prize for his research into EMF’s.
“I have no doubt in my mind that at the present time, the greatest polluting element in the earth’s environment is the proliferation of electromagnetic fields. I consider that to be far greater on a global scale, than warming, and the increase in chemical elements in the environment.’’
I would like
to thank my
family, friends, campaigners, doctors, scientists and the media and
thank my friend Jan Connor who is helping to organise the Wishaw
on 18th November in aid of the Radiation Research Trust, we
looking forward to a night of celebration and hope to raise some
needed funding. We have received some fantastic prizes from local
which include signed football shirts, champagne, electro smog metres,
art, golf and lunch and a tour for 20 people around
