An April 1981 NASA study, titled "Electromagnetic Field Interactions with the Human Body: Observed Effects and Theories," was clear about the damage that EMF radiation caused to humans....adverse effects from EMF radiation, the report states, "Some result in death and persistent disease," with other impacts being "ventricular fibrillation and sudden infant death syndrome," "cataracts," "accelerated aging," and that electromagnetic fields "may promote cancer...." The Navy's own 1971 paper lists well over 100 negative biological effects caused by microwave and radio frequency radiations, a partial list: corneal damage, tubular degeneration of testicles, brain heating, alteration of the diameter of blood vessels, liver enlargement, sterility, altered fetal development, decreased lactation in nursing mothers, altered penal function, death, cranial nerve disorders, seizures, convulsions, depression, insomnia, hand tremors, chest pain, thrombosis, alteration in the rate of cellular division, anorexia, chromosome aberrations, tumors, altered orientation of animals, birds and fish, loss of hair, and sparking between dental fillings.

Do you want an expanding world of unmuffled jets, flying an expanded array of sorties throughout the day and night, or will you take some action now to try and put some rational limits on the local growth of this particular base? Do you want to continue to trade away our environment, both as it affects humans and the natural world around us? Do you think that people will continue to come here to camp, fish and sail as the jet noise continues to increase, when they can choose to go elsewhere where it’s quieter? It’s not just about the environment, but it’s also about economic issues.

Nov 28 Deadline - Please click your vote to save this UN World Heritage Site.What is at stake is not just whether the military is allowed to use protected public lands in the Pacific Northwest for its war games, but a precedent being set for them to do so across the entire country. http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/nov-28-deadline-olympia?source=s.icn.em.cp&r_by=4891122
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.
El grupo municipal de EU-IU en el Concello de Ferrol presentará en la sesión plenaria de este jueves una moción en contra del Proyecto de Ley General de Telecomunicaciones, al considerarlo un «perigo para a saúde pública» y un «beneficio só para as grandes empresas». La propuesta está motivada desde la Plataforma Estatal Contra la Contaminación Electromagnética (PECCEM), una entidad compuesta por movimientos vecinales, ecologistas, personas afectadas y electrosensibles, así como organizaciones de defensa de la salud pública.
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."
Despite government agencies still saying that radiofrequency (rF) electromagnetic radiation is “safe”, the vast majority of independent science is showing, more than ever, that low-level chronic exposure causes health damage and disease. In addition, an alarming number of individuals – including a growing mega-list of children in schools – are experiencing symptoms of ill health caused by radiation exposure. The sheer number of individuals reporting health effects, and the sheer number of published papers reporting health effects, are creating a critical situation which can no longer be ignored.
In a bid to ease opposition to Pacific Gas and Electric Co. SmartMeters, California regulators voted Wednesday to let the company's customers keep their old analog electricity and gas meters if they choose. The opt-out program approved Wednesday requires PG&E customers to pay a one-time fee of $75, plus monthly charges of $10, to hold on to their old meters. PG&E initially wanted $270 up front and $14 per month. Low-income customers enrolled in the CARE program (California Alternate Rates for Energy) will face an initial fee of $10 and a monthly charge of $5.
It's the radio frequencies that worry people such as Pauline Holeton, 61, of Shelby Township, who has spoken out against the high-tech meters. She and others are worried about privacy and health issues from the radio waves. [Editor Note: These effects have been well documented since the 1950s.]
The Versailles Court of Appeal has upheld a decision by the Crown Court of Nanterre to force mobile telephony company Bouygues Telecom to remove a mobile phone base station as it constitutes an "exceptional nuisance". ...Last year, the City of Paris ruled to remove all antennas from their beautiful rooftops, something that Santa Fe, also known for its beauty, could well adopt.
