Lack of nesting seagulls

Following Andy's message a couple of days ago where he mentions the disappearance of nesting seagulls on his roof, I have become aware of the lack of nesting seagulls in Brighton this year. Central Brighton is usually teaming with seagulls, particularly in the spring, when newborn seagulls nesting in many chimneys are being cared for. There is usually unending noise throughout the night - now there is a complete silence......

If this is happening in other coastal towns where tetra masts have been erected, then this ought to be quite easy to establish.

Firstly we had the disappearing sparrows, now we have the question regarding the diminishing population of seagulls.

Some time ago, I endeavoured to make contact with the RSPB regarding the possibility of a link between fewer birds and microwave radiation from mobile phone technology. I was surprised that, in spite of two attempts, I got no acknowledgement from the RSPB. I subsequently discovered that the main sponsors of the RSPB is in fact VODAFONE. Could this be the reason for their lack of response. Since then they have conducted various trials to try to ascertain the reason, or reasons, for the drop in the bird population, including the request for people to count the number of bugs on their car number plates to determine if the food chain has been changed, but none of their attempts at finding a solution included the possibility that mobile phones could be one of the reasons. Anyway, it could be that the microwave radiation is killing the bugs too. So that is a double whammy for the birds.

Perhaps someone needs to talk to the RSPB and point out their link with Vodafone and conflict of interests?!

RF/MW mast radiation has been known to affect bird navigation and flocking behaviour since 1924, when the first transatlantic transmitters were installed at Valencia, Spain. The birds there broke up their previously co-ordinated wheeling flocks as soon as the transmitters were switched on each day. Ulrich Warnke published a paper in 1989 proposing that these flocks relay on electric fields induced by wing movements which charge the birds. As for the sparrow disappearances, there are many possible causes: but one cannot rule out disruption of nesting behaviour and chick embryo abnormalities (see the Henhouse project of the 1980s), especially since the harmonics of the base resonant frequency (related to 900 and 1800MHz wavelengths) matches the house sparrows normal egg diameter. The RSPB doesnt seem to want to know about it, sadly.

As a wife of a birdwatcher it might be worth pointing out here that the org that attempted to publicise the link between sparrows starlings and masts a few years ago was the british ornithology trust .. they and the rspb arnt bosom buddies though both are respected.. it may be worth while getting on to them about this issue instead http://www.bto.org/

First exposure of WIMAX dangers

A Swedish TV programme exposed yesterday the dangers of WIMAX technology, Mona Nilsson, author of a swedish book about the dangers of the cellular technology, reports:

You have to click on this (see above) Wimax seem to be very dangerous. On the same day themunicipality of Götene in Sweden started sending several persons got acute life threatening symptoms: difficulties to breathe, heart arrythmia etc. At least 5 persons had to leave their homes. Two of them are in the reportage. I was in the debate and told the public that we are in the middle of the worst enviromental and health catastrophe in history, that our authority is lying (I gave example of this) and that the experts are not representative and are to a majority members of ICNIRP. That the experts that are in majority in Sweden and who are critical are not allowed to participate in reviews in this issue. I had planned to urge for a Catastrophe commission on this issue, but was not allowed to say all I had planned, because of too limited time.

MR Hans Wiksell from Karolinska Institute (he pays himself for his professorship - he is a civiliengineer who speculates on the stock exchange and owns a lot of telecom-stocks, he has also compared the radiation with raspberry juice in a broschure from the industry on the issue) told the public that his opinion is that there are no non-termal effects..... Mr Mjönes from SSI told that there are no studies showing any effects like those that people are experiencing. Olle Johansson talked about the handicapped-perspective of this issue.

Best regards

Mona

Do cell phones pose a health risk?

Posted on Thu, May. 25, 2006

TIFFANY ST. MARTIN
Herald Staff Writer

They're all but attached to the businessman walking through the airport, the teenage girl window shopping at the mall and the expectant mother in the waiting room of her doctor's office.

They're cell phones, and they're taking over. Like mosquitoes in summer, we can't get away from them, even though some think they pose a bigger health hazard than those pesky insects.

Radiation that comes from cell phones is more permeating and more dangerous than smoking or industrial pollution, but most people are in denial because radiation is invisible, said Jaclyn Tredway.

Tredway, who's been a teacher and a nurse, now administers holistic massages as part of her Body & Soul Wellness Island in Bradenton's Village of the Arts.

"I've always been in a mode of discovering, promoting, implementing things that have a positive effect on people's well-being," Tredway said.

It was with that motivation that she in January attended a conference in Carlsbad, Calif., where she learned about electropollution and, for the first time, heard about a public health scientist's research on cell phones and the danger of their electromagnetic fields.

However, not everyone agrees that there is a problem. The Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association in April issued a release stating that there's no scientific evidence showing a connection between cell phone use and adverse health effects.

The FDA said there's no proof that they don't. Either way, cell phones emit low levels of radio frequency when they're in use and very low levels when they're on and in standby mode.

"I had no idea until that conference how big a problem it is," Tredway said. In California, she and about 200 others saw George Carlo get emotional about the health risks associated with cell phone use. It's a topic that Carlo is passionate about.

An epidemiologist, he began a multiple-year, $28.5-million study in 1993 to determine whether cell phones are harmful to our health. The research was funded by the cell phone industry.

After conducting four years of testing and finding nothing out of the ordinary, Carlo started doing biofield testing, Tredway said. "That's when everything hit the fan."

A person's biofield is a part of wellness that was discovered about 12 years ago, Tredway said. It's an aura, an invisible halo around the body, according to balancingcenter.com. The biofield is intensified when a person is happy, and is diminished when the person is going through a difficult time, the Web site said. Tredway, a cell phone user who said using one is a way of life, wears a copper-colored medallion on a black string around her neck to strengthen her biofield.

In researching cell phones' affect on a person's biofield, Carlo discovered that cell phone use is dangerous and refused to go on with the study, Tredway said. He found that cell phone radiation disrupts pacemakers, seeps through children's skulls, weakens the blood-brain barrier - which controls the movement of substances from the blood into the central nervous system - and inflicts "genetic damage that is a known diagnostic marker for cancer," according to EMF-Health.com.

While Carlo found risks associated with cell phone radiation, he didn't have any solutions for the problem, Tredway said. Then he partnered with BioPro Technology, a company with the mission of enhancing the quality of life the world over, and formed the Safe Wireless Initiative in the hopes of exposing the hazards of cell phone use to the public.

"The mobile phone industry continues to deny the existence of a problem, and governments around the world continue to sort out both legal and ethical entanglements with the industry that render them impotent in terms of protecting consumers. Now, new science clearly shows that a radio frequency radiation related disease epidemic has begun - the brunt of which will be borne by our children and grandchildren," he's quoted as saying on SafeWireless.org.

Electropollution is caused not only by cell phone radiation, but also by radiation from microwaves and the electricity running through our homes, Tredway said. "We're swimming in this sea of electropollution."
