FOR VIDEO: http://youtu.be/lBTBoMuLTkQ On Friday, February 22, despite the swirling snow and wintry winds, approximately fifty plus parents, their children, and neighbors took up picket signs outside the Burger King, next to their children's Gonzales Community School, protesting a cell tower planned by AT&T. As their petition states, not only could a cell tower explode or fall into the three gas pumps located at the Burger King, but a narrow arroyo filled with dry trees and brush is all that separates the land owned by Tom McCullum from the Gonzales School campus. Channel 7 ABC arrived with cameras rolling and interviewed four neighborhood parents and protestors. DID ANY FOOTAGE MAKE IT ONTO CHANNEL 7 NEWS? No, and not surprising as most media coverage seems strangely silent. The New Mexican mustered a 2 1/2 inch photograph and two sentences about the picket, featured on page 10A.
TV and video game use correlates with increased obesity (Tremblay 2005). Children who are allowed a device in their bedrooms have 30% increased incidence of obesity Technology overuse is implicated as a causal factor in rising rates of child depression, anxiety, attachment disorder, attention deficit, autism, bipolar disorder, psychosis and problematic child behavior
"This is the first generation to have kids from age 10 up to adulthood with cell phones right next to their heads and brains. Brains are developing up to age 22 to 25, so I think we have to be safe," stated Green. To raise awareness of RF exposure, Green introduced a measure calling for cell phones sold in Hawaii to come with a prominent warning -- similar to what smokers see on the sides of cigarette packages.
After removing several antennas from the heart of the neighborhoods, the business owners agreed to put them in the industrial zone. The residents fight them too. A resident said: "We live close to the industrial zone. I know 13 cancer patients only from the last year and all of them live in the neighborhoods near the industrial zone. Two of them died. We fight to remove the antennas from the city."
“Los niños se ven desproporcionadamente afectados… Las diferencias en la densidad ósea y la cantidad de líquido en el cerebro de un niño en comparación con el cerebro de un adulto podrían permitir que los niños absorban más profundamente en sus cerebros cantidades mayores de energía de RF (radiofrecuencia) que los adultos. Es esencial que las nuevas normas para los teléfonos móviles u otros dispositivos inalámbricos se basen en la protección de las poblaciones más jóvenes y más vulnerables para asegurar que estén protegidos a lo largo de sus vidas".
Magnetic fields exposure and childhood leukemia risk: A meta-analysis based on 11,699 cases and 13,194 controls
CONCLUSIONS: The result in this meta-analysis indicated that magnetic field exposure level may be associated with childhood leukemia.
All of this may sound very “cool” to a lot of people. But what happens if we are all required to have “electronic identity tattoos” someday? What happens if an oppressive government uses this technology to watch, track, monitor and control all of us 24 hours a day with this technology? What happens if you are not able to get a job, have a bank account or buy anything without “proper identification”? I think that you can see where I am going with this. Technology is truly a double-edged sword. It can do great good, but it can also be used for great evil.
A scholarly article on cell phone safety published online in the journal Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine reported the finding that cell phones used in the shirt or pants pocket exceed the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) exposure guidelines and that children absorb twice as much microwave radiation from phones as do adults.
Our results provide the first evidence, suggesting that the EMF emitted by a commercial mobile phone affects rCBF in humans. These results are consistent with the postulation that EMF induces changes in neuronal activity. Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism
Cell phone towers in Kolkata have been taking a heavy toll on the health of people living close to them. It could be triggering a range of disorders from fatigue, memory loss, headache and hearing impairment to more serious ones like cardiac problems and even congenital defects, claims the study conducted by researchers of the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Cancer Research Institute (NSCRI).
