Gary Olhoeft, PhD, geophysicist and electrical engineer – excerpted from An Electronic Silent Spring
“I have Parkinson’s Disease. In 2009, I had a Deep Brain Stimulator (DBS) implanted in my brain. It completely replaces the pharmaceuticals I took for fifteen years, which caused increasingly unpleasant side effects. My Medtronics manual says that a cell phone must be at least 20 inches away from me with a SAR of no more than 1.8. Held near my head, the phone’s SAR can’t be more than 0.25 for 15 minutes. Otherwise, according to Medtronics, it will cause dangerous heating of my implant. If the implant gets too hot, it will malfunction, my brain could be injured, or I could die.”
“The Medtronic manual for my deep brain stimulator (implanted to ease effects of Parkinson’s) lists more than sixteen pages of potential electro-magnetic interferences. . . .
“Wireless radiation causes health problems in many ways. One that few people know about is interference with medical devices. Imagine someone with a deep brain implant or an insulin pump having to live in a home with a $$smeter. They could suffer seriously.
“The National Institute of Health estimates that twenty-five million Americans now have implanted medical devices. Besides brain stimulators, the functioning of cardiac pacemakers, insulin pumps, cochlear implants and bone stimulators can also be disturbed by RF signals.” . . .
Smart Meter with Radio-Off! Why’s it still broadcasting BC Hydro?
BC Hydro is misleading customers again . . .
Is your choice of a BC Hydro Smart Meter with microwave transmitter radio-off, that you are paying extra for each and every month, sneakily broadcasting and actually still on, without them telling you? My neighbours just got theirs after being told they had to surrender their analogue meter and guess what, the SmartMeter-Off, is actually broadcasting around the clock – perhaps not as frequently as the regular smart meter, but this one is definitively ON, not off!
The BCUC needs to hear from you if you have this kind of meter.
