  • Help Stop 5G Wireless - a dangerous radiation intensive technology!

    We defeated the proposal to further erode local zoning in California. The stakes are even higher now! Spread the word!

    The FCC has voted to move forward with 5G, an extremely dangerous technology. Read Chairman Wheelers comments about the Spectrum Frontiers Proceeding (https://www.fcc.gov/document/remarks-chairman-wheeler-future-wireless). This would put 5G transmitters on power and light poles throughout communities across the United States with the aim of creating enough saturation of very high frequency microwave radiation that fiber optic level connectivity is available wirelessly everywhere.

    We need everyone to educate their Congresspeople and opponents in the election about the dangers of wireless radiation. We also need everyone to file comments in opposition to 5G in the relevant dockets. The FDA is supposed to put out warnings in light of the National Toxicology Program results showing that wireless radiation is carcinogenic and breaks DNA. They are dragging their feet. Please write them as well.

    SEND IN FCC PUBLIC COMMENTS ABOUT "DIRTY" ELECTRICITY - August 11, 2016 Deadline

    The FCC has finally opened a docket to look at "dirty" electricity and sources of radiated RF from electronics. The FCC standards related to "dirty" electricity, conducted RF, and inadvertently radiated RF have been developed primarily to prevent electronics and transmitters from interfering with each other.

    Please write in by August 11, 2016 with a brief synopsis of how "dirty" electricity has affected your health and request that the new standards be set to prevent health effects. The Stetzerizer "dirty" electricity meter was evaluated in Kazakhstan and health standards were set such that no more than 50 G/S units of dirty electricity should be allowed on building wiring to protect health (www.electricalpollution.com/documents/Sanitary_Norms.pdf). The FCC should adopt this standard and require device and light manufacturers to engineer their devices to put out substantially less than that. Frequencies above the range of the Stetzerizer meter should also have much tighter standards. Their effect is related to capacitive coupling and energy. A signal from the transmitter on a smart meter was found to be in violation of existing limits for conducted RF if the limits went that high (see http://stopsmartmetersny.org/debunkingutility.html for more information). Obviously this shows that new standards that extend the full range of existing and future transmitter technology are necessary to protect human health.

    Tightening of standards should extend to sources of conducted and radiated RF in cars. Many with RF sickness have trouble with cars due to conducted and radiated RF from components not designed to minimize RF emissions sufficient to protect human health. Sources include, but are not limited to, the alternator, spark plugs and distributor, fuel pump, air conditioning compressor controls, ignition switch, radio systems, and electronic displays. Proper filtering and design could minimize much of this. If this is a problem for you, be sure to mention it and ask that they revise these standards as well to protect human health. Availability of stripped down properly designed models should allow most people with RF sickness to use a car again.

    The docket does not explicitly deal with health, but comments should be put in anyway so they know that they have to address the health problems the inadequate standards are causing. Health should certainly fall under point 1b and 4a. Feel free to address other points in the docket as well (attached), especially those with technical expertise.

    Please take a moment to submit your comment. This office is not the same as the office responsible for broadband. I know they have had complaints from people about RF on wiring. This is an opportunity to ask the people who can take action to do so. Opening this docket is an indication that they are at least looking seriously at taking action. Let's give them good reason to do so.

    Transmitting Smart Meters Pose A Serious Threat To Public Health

    Transmitting smart meters are being installed nationwide, driven in part by funding for the Smart Grid Program approved as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

    This is of great concern because the exposure to microwave and radiowave radiation from these meters is involuntary and continuous. The transmitting meters do comply with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) "safety" standards. However, those standards were initially designed to protect an average male from tissue heating (cooking) during a brief exposure. These standards were not designed to protect a diverse population from the non-thermal effects of continuous exposure to microwave and radiowave radiation. Therefore, these "safety" standards were not designed to protect the public from health problems under the circumstances which the meters are being used. The transmitting meters most often being used transmit continuously, every 4 to 28 seconds or so. This is picked up by a receiver and logged by the utility. Thus, the exposure is continuous and the "safety" standards the meters comply with are irrelevant to the situation. Please read this letter from the Radiation Protection Division of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding the limitations of the FCC standards.

    The un-safeness of the "safety" standards for the continuously transmitting smart meters is apparent from the reports of health problems ranging from headaches to poor sleep to heart palpitations that begin after their installation.

    Say NO to Industry Head for FCC!

    Let your Senator know you oppose Mr. Wheeler's nomination.

    Remind your Senator to vote NO on Mr. Wheeler's confirmation.

    The confirmation of Thomas E. Wheeler for FCC Chairman could come up for a vote anytime now. Mr. Wheeler's nomination almost came up for a vote last Wednesday. It has been temporarily held up.

    Thomas E. Wheeler, former president of the CTIA who opposed meaningful RF safety limits in the 1996 Telecommunications Act, has been nominated to be Chairman of the FCC. He should not be heading the FCC at a time when the FCC is reassessing whether it needs to update its RF safety limits. His conflicts of interest are too great. Mr. Wheeler was key in preventing enactment of biologically-based RF safety limits in the past. He is the WRONG choice to head the FCC now, when it is again considering biologically-based RF safety limits. His nomination will soon be voted on by the full Senate.

    Great Videos on wireless technology and health

    Videos often have an emotional impact lacking in print material. Below are a few videos, some of which can be streamed live and some available as DVDs, that have really helped improve understanding of the serious effect that wireless technology can have on health. Please pass links on to others.

    KTVU Special Report on breast cancer being caused by cellphones on standby - It is about two young women (21 and 39) with no family history of or genetic predisposition toward breast cancer who got breast cancer just where they always put their phones. It is only a few minutes long. It is a perfect example of the very real consequences of the outdated thermally-based FCC regulations. Real lives are damaged by dangerous products on the market being used commonly in ways that are hazardous. It highlights the need for immediate passage of legislation to establish meaningful biologically-based safety limits for radiation from wireless devices to replace the outdated thermally-based safety limits put in place by the FCC.

    RESONANCE - BEINGS OF FREQUENCY By James Russell - This movie has helped technically minded people to understand why radiation from wireless devices is so dangerous. It may be the movie for the technically-minded skeptic in your life.

    Time Sensitive - ACTIVELY Support biologically-based safety limits for radiation from wireless devices

    It is absolutely critical that all Americans actively support biologically-based safety limits for radiation from wireless devices.

    Why should EVERYONE actively support biologically-based safety limits for radiation from wireless devices and therefore "The Cellphone Right to Know Act"?

    "The Cellphone Right to Know Act"requires the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to set safety limits that ensure everyone (fetuses, pregnant women, children, the elderly, and everyone else) is not harmed by their daily use of and exposure to wireless devices. Not one of us is only exposed to radiation from wireless devices 6 minutes a day and most of us are not 6 ft 185 lb males. Tissue heating is not the most dangerous effect of radiation from wireless devices. Radiation from wireless devices (pulsed modulated microwave radiation) causes DNA breakages, cancer , metabolic changes, alters enzyme function, impairs the immune system, alters blood sugar - usually raising it, causes headaches, impairs melatonin secretion, etc. (see www.magdahavas.com , www.electricalpollution.com , www.emrpolicy.org)

    At this time, there are no biologically-based safety limits for exposure to radiation from wireless devices. At this time, the safety limits with which wireless devices comply merely ensure that your wireless device will not heat your tissue (cook you) more than 1 degree celcius in less than six minutes, but only if you're a 6ft 185lb male.

    "The Cellphone Right to Know Act" will require the EPA to establish biologically-based safety limits within two years to protect the general public.

    Hopefully it is now clear why EVERYONE, with or without radiofrequency sickness, large and small, sick or healthy, should support "The Cellphone Right to Know Act". (Find out how you can support "The Cellphone Right To Know Act")

    Off-grid electrical power does not guarantee freedom from electrical pollution

    Electrical pollution or "dirty power" causes billions of dollars of damage annually to industry. "Dirty power" is the 60 Hz power we pay for distorted by high frequencies. Electrical ground currents are caused by overloading of the primary neutral, the wire that returns the power to the substation. The primary neutral was not sized to carry all the high frequencies generated by modern electronics. The "dirty power" that is forced to return to the substation via the earth by the small size of the primary neutral does not discriminate between those on the grid and those who are off. Electricity returns to the substation by the path of least resistance. That path can include your yard and house. A simple thing such as washing dishes or standing on the lawn can then make you part of an electrical circuit. Representative Gronemus has authored legislation to address this problem (2003 Assembly Bill AB529).

    Off-grid houses frequently use inverters to convert the DC power generated by alternative energy sources to the AC power we expect to find in our outlets. Unfortunately, inverters also generate high frequencies when they generate the 60 Hz waveform. Without the proper filters these high frequencies are transmitted throughout the house's electrical system with the 60 Hz signal. The high frequencies on home wiring can cause Radiofrequency Sickness. The symptoms of which can include: sleeplessness or disturbed sleep, fever, rash, nausea, inability to concentrate, thinking in a fog, short-term memory problems, sore joints (particularly hip joints), irritable bowel syndrome, miscarriage, and birth defects. The symptoms that come and go, particularly the fever, clear up outside of the exposure area as long as there is not continued exposure to high frequencies from another source. The alternative energy off-grid homes we have measured have had some of the highest numbers measured on theMicrosurge Meter. Unfortunately, off-grid homes cannot use the readily available Stetzerizer Filters. I have yet to hear of an inverter available that is "clean" enough.

    Take Action! FCC and FDA joint hearing on "Regulatory Issues Arising from Health Care Devices that Incorporate Radio Technology Wireless Communications Networks"

    The FCC and FDA will not stop installation of transmitting utility meters, approval of new wireless technology, or sale of additional spectrum unless they hear from many many people who are having health problems related to wireless technology.

    File a comment for the FCC and FDA joint hearing on "Regulatory Issues Arising from Health Care Devices that Incorporate Radio Technology Wireless Communications Networks" by August 16, 2010. This is of the utmost importance. More information and directions available on the FCC and FDA joint hearing page. Please see Transmitting Smart Meters Page for more information about the health risks posed by transmitting utility meters and wireless technology.

    Electrical Pollution: An environmental trigger for multiple sclerosis symptoms for many

    A number of people with multiple sclerosis (MS) have found that their symptoms improved within about a month of taking steps to eliminate exposure to high frequencies on building wiring. The necessary steps can be found on the Solutions page. Electromagnetic hypersensitivity: biological effects of dirty electricity with emphasis on diabetes and multiple sclerosis is a peer-reviewed paper about two such cases. Other research on the health effects of electrical pollution can be found on the Research page. I personally know a couple of other people with MS who began to experience symptomatic relief almost immediately. It may take substantially longer for more permanent damage to heal. To read more background on the electrical pollution problem, please visit the Introduction page. More background on the health effects of exposure to radiofrequency radiation can be found on the Health Issues page.

    Newly published epidemiological study links exposure to "dirty" power to an increased risk for cancer

    A New Electromagnetic Exposure Metric: High Frequency Voltage Transients Associated With Increased Cancer Incidence in Teachers in a California School by Samuel Milham, MD, MPH, and L. Lloyd Morgan, BS has been published in the American Journal of Industrial Medicine (2008)

    The researchers did a retrospective study of the cancers at a school where teachers felt they had an unusually high incidence of cancer and authorities were denying the existence of a cluster. Their conclusions were "The cancer incidence in the teachers at this school is unusually high and is strongly associated with high frequency voltage transients, which may be a universal carcinogen, similar to ionizing radiation." This is a very strong statement. Not only should further studies be done, but existing regulations to keep power clean should be strictly and immediately enforced. New regulations limiting the pollution level each electronic device is allowed to put out should be put in place. Currently such regulations are designed to prevent radio interference. They should be designed to protect human health.

    Other research on the health effects of electrical pollution can be found on the Research Page. Health benefits of lowering electrical pollution levels include improved blood sugar control, significant improvement in MS symptoms, and improvement in a whole host of other symptoms.

    Wisconsin Representative Gronemus reintroduces The Electrical Consumers Bill of Rights

    Representative Barbara Gronemus is circulating her bill to eliminate electrical ground currents for co-sponsors. It is LRB 1641/1, the Electrical Consumers Bill of Rights. Please call your legislators and ask that they co-sponsor it.

    The bill is elegant in its simplicity. It merely codifies the National Electrical Safety Code requirement that the earth not be used as a continuous return path for electricity. The legislation requires that the utilities stop using the ground as a return path for electrical current. (At this time over 70% of electrical current returns via the ground, traveling uncontrolled on lawns, plumbing, playground equipment, us, and anything else conductive in its path, which is not necessarily anywhere near electrical wires.) It allows the utilities to determine the most effective and least costly method to use in each situation. There are a number of methods available see EPRI Publication TR-106003 Handbook for the Assessment and Management of Magnetic Fields Caused by Distribution Lines for details. It also provides recourse for citizens, besides lawsuits, if the utilities are not responsive to notification of current returning on the ground.

    While the human health effects of exposure to electrical ground currents have gotten little media attention, that is not because they are non-existent. Electrical ground currents are pretty conclusively linked to an increase in the risk of childhood leukemia. The high frequencies that pollute our electricity and cause the electrical ground currents have been linked to increased blood glucose levels, multiple sclerosis symptoms, asthma, allergies, migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome and an assortment of other symptoms, see the Research Page for details. Dirty power cannot be totally cleaned up until we get all the electricity back under control on a wire.

    The problem of electrical ground currents was noticed first by farmers for two main reasons. One, farmyards with animals are very conductive due to the urine and manure. Two, cows deliver a product that is quantifiable with an expected yield for certain care practices. When this is no longer being achieved, it is obvious something is wrong, especially if the cows are also dying right and left. When electrical ground currents are the culprit, milk production often varies wildly and only correlates to the electrical environment, see dose response curve, toward bottom of the News page. The dose response curve and replication (50 or more cows per herd) makes it obvious. With humans, each one of us is viewed in isolation. There has been extreme reluctance to examine electrical exposure via plumbing, ground currents, dirty power on wires or any other source. People are much more likely to be treated symptom by symptom, illness by illness.

    The increasing body of research on exposure to electrical pollution shows humans are profoundly affected. For the health of our society we should require electricity remain on electrical wires during normal operation of the electrical grid. Please support LRB 1641/1, The Electrical Consumers Bill of Rights. We are already paying for the illness caused by this problem. Wouldn't it make more sense to pay a pittance to get the electricity back on the wire? (Last time the legislation was introduced, it was estimated it would cost $1.20/ratepayer/month to implement.)

    Please contact your WI Representatives and Senators as soon as possible and ask your family and friends to do likewise. This affects us all. (People out of state can contact their state representatives and have them introduce the legislation in their own state. Previous versions can be found on the Legislation Page. They only differ in dates and such that need to be updated from version to version.) Never underestimate the power of contacting your representative.

    Graham/Stetzer Filters Improve Power Quality in Homes and Schools, Reduce Blood Sugar Levels in Diabetics, Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms, and Headaches

    Presented at the International Scientific Conference on Childhood Leukemia, London, 6th - 10th September, 2004

    Graham/Stetzer Filters Improve Power Quality in Homes and Schools, Reduce Blood Sugar Levels in Diabetics, Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms, and Headaches

    Magda Havas and David Stetzer

    Summary

    Graham/Stetzer filters significantly reduce radio frequency electrical noise on indoor wiring -- generated by computers, energy efficient lighting, dimmer switches, and entertainment units within the home or workplace and transported into the buildings by power lines from neighboring property. The resultant improvements in power quality in homes and in schools are associated with fewer and less severe headaches, more energy, lower blood sugar levels for diabetics, and improved balance for those with multiple sclerosis. Results are observed within a matter of hours or days. Case studies for blood sugar, multiple sclerosis, and general wellbeing are presented.

    Poster One and Poster Two go with the above paper.

    An Electrical Pollution Meter Now Available

    The Microsurge Meter plugs into an electrical outlet giving a continuous reading of the electrical pollution levels on the wiring. The meter measures the energy in the radio frequency range riding on the 60 or 50 Hz sine wave.


    Meter available from Stetzer Electric
    (Click to enlarge)

    The Microsurge Meter has been standardized against the existing sanitary standards for exposure to high frequencies for the Republic of Kazakhstan. In November 2003, the government of the Republic of Kazakhstan issued sanitary norms governing electrical pollution on building wiring which set the highest allowable reading for building wiring at 50 on the Microsurge Meter. ("Permissible levels of high-frequency electromagnetic pollutions' voltage in a wires of industrial frequency alternating current: Sanitary-epidemiologic norms" and the decree on "On measures of decreasing of negative influence of physical factors on human health") Readings over 50 are required to be reduced to less than 50 using filters or some other means. They recognize that an acceptable level of 50 is not the same as a safe level.

    My personal experience, corroborated by others recovering from radiowave sickness, has been that levels need to be below 20 for me not to be sick, the farther below 20 the better.

    The meters are available from Stetzer Electric, Inc. They can be reached by phone at (608) 989-2571 or by email at dana@stetzerelectric.com.

    Are Increasing Electrical Pollution Levels a Factor in the Rising Rate of Diabetes?


    (Click to enlarge)
    Left is a graph of blood sugar versus electrical pollution levels as measured using the peak to peak electrical pollution meter designed by Professor Emeritus at University of California in Berkeley Dr. Martin Graham.

    This person was initially diagnosed with Type II diabetes mellitus or adult onset diabetes. The diagnosis was changed after the doctors were shown that the person could eat anything, as long as the electrical pollution levels were low, without causing elevated blood sugar levels. However, when pollution levels were high the person's blood sugar would shoot up, without eating anything.

    Mitigation of Electrical Pollution in the Home

    In "Mitigation of Electrical Pollution in the Home," released on 19 April 2002, Professor Emeritus at University of California in Berkeley Dr. Martin Graham discusses how people can cheaply and easily identify whether they are exposed to electrical pollution, as well as, a safe easy way to mitigate the problem once it is identified.

    He suggests using an inexpensive portable hand held AM radio to detect electrical pollution (See "Mitigation of Electrical Pollution in the Home" for details). In the paper, he also discusses the use of filters to reduce/eliminate exposure to electrical pollution. These filters have advantages over previous filters in that they are small, portable (They plug into any outlet.), have a higher frequency range, and any person who knows how to plug in an electrical device can install them.


    Filter available from Stetzer Electric
    (Click to enlarge)
    Approximately 20 such filters are needed to reduce exposure to electrical pollution in the average home. In order to adquately filter the home, it is important to install a sufficient number of filters from the start. The installation instructions below can be used to help determine how many are needed.

    Instructions for filter installation can be found at http://www.stetzerelectric.com/filters/filter_instructions.html

    Filters are available from Stetzer Electric, Inc. They can be reached by phone at (608) 989-2571 or by email at Dave@stetzerelectric.com

    Dr. Graham provided pictures of spectra of electrical pollution from a spectrum analyzer.

    Immediate Action Required to Keep Wisconsin Assembly Bill 529 From Being Killed

    In Wisconsin, The Electrical Bill of Rights (AB529) needs to get to the floor by March 11. After March 11, the Assembly is done for the year. In order for AB529 to get to the floor, the Committee on Energy and Utilities needs to have an Executive Session and decide to send it to the floor. An Executive Session is the session during which the committee meets, discusses the legislation, and decides whether to pass it to the floor or not. By not having a session, the Chairman essentially seems to be deciding to kill the legislation without having to come out and say so. The scheduling of the executive session is entirely at the discretion of the chairman. The chairman of the Committee on Energy and Utilities is Rep. Scott Jensen.

    Please call Chairman Jensen's office, (608) 264-6970, and politely request that he schedule an executive session ASAP so the legislation can get to the floor yet this year. Remind him how important this is to you. Please also call your Representative and ask them to ask that an executive session be scheduled. If your Representative is one of those on the committee, please be particularly persistent. Again, remind them how important this is to you. (The squeaky wheel really does get the grease.)

    Here is the composition of the Wisconsin Assembly Committee on Energy and Utilities:
    Representatives Jensen, chairperson, Powers, vice chairperson
    Representatives Montgomery, Friske, J. Fitzgerald, Gottlieb, Nischke, Honadel, Ziegelbauer, Steinbrink, Schooff, Zepnick and Travis.

    Stetzer worked with industry for years as an industrial power quality specialist, designing and installing systems to protect their equipment from "dirty" power. For over five years, he has used the same equipment to document the power quality problems in homes, schools, office buildings, and on dairy farms, working with utilities to solve the problems and solving any problems originating on-site.

    Stetzer has consistently found improvements in health as electrical environments were 'cleaned up.' At one school, the District Nurse reported a marked decrease in the need for asthma medication among students, less fatigue amongst the teachers and that problems with allergies and migraines were reduced or resolved. In short she stated, "I feel that our faculty and students have had improved health overall since the filters have been installed." A farmer found that the levels on his farm decreased by about half after the local school 'cleaned up' their problem.

    Assembly Bill 529 will require that electrical utilities eliminate electrical ground currents and allow citizens several avenues to pursue should a utility not comply. Its role in eliminating electrical pollution will also be discussed.

    CNN "Moneyline" Program on the Hazards of Powerline Electromagnetic Fields

    CNN "Moneyline" aired a program on the hazards of powerline electromagnetic fields on Thursday, 15 August 2002 at 6 PM (EST) based on the California Health Report. Steve Young, CNN correspondant, reports "Power line radiation has been implicated as a potential health risk before. But the more than 500-page report by the California Department of Health Services issues the strongest warning yet. The three authors say they, quote, "are inclined to believe that power line radiation increases the risk for childhood leukemia, adult brain cancer, Lou Gehrig's disease and miscarriages."" Louis Slesin, publisher, "Microwave News" was a guest on the show. Click here to see the transcript of the show. The portion of the show on powerline EMF is 2/3 of the way down the full transcript after the financial news.

    Electrical Pollution Talk

    Electromagnetic Pollution: What is it and what to do about it.

    2 - 4:30 PM, Saturday, May 3rd at Outpost Natural Foods Coop, 204 E. Capitol St., Milwaukee.
    (Just a bit east of the Capitol St. exit off of I 43.)

    The electricity in our homes, schools and workplaces is not the clean 60 cycle electricity we are paying for. It is polluted with high frequencies that cause symptoms such as: headaches, fatigue, depression, anxiety, low immunity, depression, deteriorating vision and cataracts, cardiac abnormalities, ADD, CFS, strokes, tumors, leukemia, Alzheimer's...

    We'll discuss in depth both the cause of this situation and what we can do to protect ourselves and our ecosystem from this potent invisible pollutant that flows continually through our homes and bodies.

    We'll also consider health effects of mobile phones and cell towers, EM military technology and Earth's own EM lines.

    Presented by Shivani Arjuna, Wellness Consultant with over 25 years experience in holistic health field.

    Ground Currents: An important factor in electromagnetic exposure

    Ground Currents: An important factor in electromagnetic exposure by Duane A. Dahlberg, Ph.D contains an excellent explanation of how the electrical grid has evolved to the point that the majority of the electrical current returns to the substations via the earth and where that current comes from and is going to. It raises excellent questions about the effect that this has on life on that earth.

    Why Ground Currents?

    Why Ground Currents? by Duane A. Dahlberg, Ph.D briefly reviews the evidence that ground currents are detrimental to human and animal health.
