Denmark awake


Some time ago I told you about the public debate that started in Denmark on basestations.

Now two months later it has spread all over the country. It has been covered extensively in all the largest newspapers in full-page articles, even by those newspapers that are most friendly towards industry, and in many radio and television broadcasts. Now the first Danish television channel is making a special program in 4 parts, in which they will also involve the group in Lund.

They have also discovered that I am actually the only one, who has ever done experimental research in this field in Denmark. So I get numerous calls from ordinary people, organizations, journalists etc.

Many groups of worried people in the big cities have started actions to protest against the mobile phone masts and demanding them to be taken down, moved or not raised. It is certainly also because people suddenly notice the 3G/UMTS masts, because the companies have started to raise them everywhere.

As a consequence some local authorities have already stopped giving permissions to put up more masts.

In all this the mobile phone companies have kept completely silent. I think they are afraid that if they go into the debate, there will be even more publicity and the result could be that nobody will buy the new mobile phones. If people protest they offer to move the masts or offer more money, just to keep them silent and avoid more public debate. The only thing that happened is that suddenly a joint report appeared from the Ministry of Health and of Telecommunication. In short it said, that mobile telephony and the masts were completely harmless and any harmful effects ever found was accidentally. So nobody needs to worry. This report was based on NOTHING!

Quite obvious this report was ordered by the telephone companies, who bought the 3G/UMTS licences and paid a lot of money to the government. And of course now they wanted the government to do something to stop this debate.

So at last, 10 years later than the rest of the world, Denmark is now awake.

Thank you very much for your support. Please keep sending me interesting and relevant information.

Kind regards

Hutchison's 3G tower headache

Oct 08

Katrina Nicholas

Hutchison could be forced to dismantle scores of the high-tech mobile phone towers that power its '3' video-phone network after the High Court rejected its application to appeal a court ruling that ordered  the removal of a tower in south Sydney.

Hutchison contractors broke into Oatley Park to remove the 22-metre high offending tower at about 5.30am on Saturday after being asked by the phone group to take down the tower early to avoid negative publicity.

Hurstville City Council mayor Vince Badalati said he was not worried about the smashed padlock but was glad Hutchison had begun removing the structure quickly. He said a number of other councils may be able to take similar action against the telco, which launched its third-generation mobile service in Australia in April.

Mr Badalati said Hutchison had erected its '3' tower at Oatley Park, despite Hurstville Council twice rejecting the telco's requests to do so.

Hutchison eventually relied on a maintenance provision in the Telecommunications Act to erect the tower. Usually, building such towers requires a permit from the Australian Communications Authority, which first holds a public inquiry.

However, carriers generally get around this process by relying on an exemption in the act that allows a carrier to "maintain" an existing facility. In the case of Oatley Park, Hutchison had declared that a council lighting pole was an existing facility and had replaced it with a '3' telecommunications tower.

In July, the NSW Court of Appeal ruled that Hutchison was wrong to rely on that provision.

Although Hutchison maintains the Oatley Park tower was a one-off and that its 500 or so other '3' towers around Sydney will not be affected, people close to the appeal say this is not the case.

One source said an affidavit sworn by a Hutchison project manager indicated that many more '3' sites could be affected if the High Court refused to allow the company's appeal. Deacons partner Peter Rigg, who acted for Hurstville Council, also said a number of other sites could be affected.

Other councils understood to be considering legal action of a similar nature include Sydney's Sutherland Shire Council and Adelaide's City of Mitcham. The City of Mitcham's action, which concerns five '3' towers, is expected to be heard in the South Australian Supreme Court soon.

Hutchison said in a statement that it was disappointed by the High Court's decision but intended to comply with orders to remove the facility (at present an equipment shed still remains) within 10 days. A spokesman also said the company's contractors would not have done anything Hurstville Council was not first made aware of.


Re: Are microwaves addictive? (Reply from Gerard Hyland)

Dear Don,

I have been asked this question before by people in the UK, but, unfortunately, cannot supply an answer.

It is a fact, however, that mobile phone signals DO interfere with the dopamine-opiate system in the brain, and since endorphins are, like the opiates, involved in pain relief, it not unreasonable to assume that their levels get interfered with. Circumstantial evidence in support of this comes from the fact that they (endorphins) are found in (amongst other places) the HYPOTHALAMUS, which has been implicated in the DYSFUNCTION OF THE BODY'S THERMOREGULATION MECHANISM under exposure to microwave radiation of sub-thermal intensity - a possible reason why some people near Base-stations complain of the sensation of overheating, despite the fact that the intensity is far too low to cause any direct heating!

 I attach the latest version of my Base-station paper, which contains  the relevant references

Children's Health Month

Klaus: You may recall that I challenged this "Environmental Health site" because they featured "Childrens' Health Month" and yet I was not able to find anything on the site regarding EMF/EMR exposure. I am forwarding Dr. Goehl's reply as well as my response to him. Thanks - Joanne

Dear Ms. Mueller,

Thank you for your comments on EMF.  We have published many articles that explore the health effects of EMF and will continue to consider publication of new research submitted to EHP.

Dear Dr. Goehl: I am sorry but merely publishing articles about EMF from time-to-time does not accomplish much insofar as warning parents to check sleeping areas for such obvious things as close proximity to electric clock radios, monitors, electric meters, etc. 

An environmental health site should provide continuous links to the most recent research including the 2002 California EMF Study!!!! Since childhood leukemia is linked to 4.0 milligauss (chronic, prolonged exposure) in the California study as well as Lou Gehrig's Disease and even brain cancer and miscarriage, it would seem to me that an emphasis should be made to educate the parents and that the government needs to take an active role in providing information to the American Medical Association so brochures containing website information can be provided to clinics.

The diseases linked to low levels of EMR exposure by the California study are initially promoted by "inflammation." There is a virtual explosion of asthma in this country -- that alone is a major health problem that continuous to drive up insurance costs and also causes many families to lose their struggles to support their families!!!! Asthma and sinus infections were primary symptoms of my two grandsons with rare immune deficiencies. Incidentally "asthma" was the first symptom observed in my guinea pigs soon after their cage was placed against the wall containing the electric meter -- the same spot in the bedrooms of my two grandsons!!!!

All health problems are related on some level to "inflammation." It is imperative that the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences take an active role in educating the public so fewer children need to endure the difficulties encountered by suffering ADD, ADHD, various other learning difficulties as well as the problems relating to trying to learn and "maintain standards" when sick with chronic problems such as asthma, sinus infections, migraine headaches, etc., etc.!!!!

To you and others at the National Institute of Health Sciences, I say "we can not and must not continue to play the game of 100% proof needed before informing the public of what is well-known!!!! Cumulatively the evidence is overwhelming!!!!

EMR exposure in the home is only the "tip of the iceberg" because failure to warn about the possible effects of cell phone use as well as the ever-increasing placement of telecommunications antennas in residential areas, etc. will soon reveal just how catastrophic this "non-action" really is!!!!

2002 Letter of Corroboration of NIH Md. Statement About Mind Control

C.A.H.R.A. Home Page

April 27, 2002

I am aware of the physicians research work when he was associated with the National Institutes of Health, and I consider it to be of the highest standard. I am also familiar with his Patents and his work in the identification of virus' in small samples of fluids. In my opinion, the statements he has made in his Statement can be taken as true, reflecting facts and events which occurred.

The author is also personally known to me and has related some of the information contained in the document to me on prior occasions. There was no information given to the author prior to his producing the initial document other than to ask if he would write up some of his experiences with mind control. The last two paragraphs were added by the author after he became aware of the experiment I did for CAHRA. He was asked to comment on the experiment without additional input from anyone. I can corroborate the following points contained in the Statement:

I knew Senator Claiborne Pell, his Legislative Assistant referred to in the document, and the investigative reporter also mentioned. I was aware that they were involved in mind control investigations and that they had data that indicated the existence of technology that could be used to effect some sort of mind control. Specifically, I was aware of the photograph of a signal that appeared on an individual's TV screen. I had several meetings with that individual and examined the photograph mentioned in the Statement.

Also, I asked the Legislative Assistant to comment on the physician's Statement. He stated to me: "...what he has written details the events as I recall them, and as we discussed at the time they were going on." He does not want to be identified for the same reason the MD does not want to be identified.

Question of antennas in nanotechnology

I'm sure you already are aware, that the mobile phone is being used to draw this technology to a victim.

I believe this is so widespread now it may be beyond control.


We now know mobiles can pick up a signal even when switched off, and think of the times you have gone to a place where no-one knows you, and certain aspects of the harassment you are experiencing begins from people (locals) that were already there before you arrived. Even at places you may have stopped at, such as cafes, without prior knowledge yourself. So nothing could possibly have been set up.

I think in the course of time this may not sound so strange.

This technology has opened the door to control by anyone with sufficient power, anywhere in the world.


I am being tortured with electronic technology, which I believe is from neighbours.  At nights I awaken to feel my legs and feet tingling, and this becomes very painful, causing extreme pain. I can feel the pulsed energy hitting against me. After a bad bout of this my face feels like it is sunburned.
