ATTN: TRUSTEES FOR CHILDREN WITH LEUKAEMIA -

As you know, I have appealed to you for help in regard to funding Assoc. Prof. Olle Johansson in the past. Eileen O'Connor has done a great job of explaining the need to continue funding Dr. Johansson and her email is included (addressed to the Karolinska).

While you have excellent EMF scientists in the Uk, including Dr. Denis Henshaw (now also a Trustee), there are many benefits in collaborating with the prestigous Karolinska Institute by joining efforts to support the work of such a brilliant, honest, passionate worker for the rights of persons everywhere to live in harmony with their environment. As you know, there are many aspects of the EMF/EMR issue that need urgent attention -- not the least of which is the need to begin making announcements re "common sense prudent avoidance!!!

Dr. Johansson has bravely withstood criticism from many fronts and has had his very livelihood threatened many times. He is "a voice for the people" -- we can't afford for him to be silenced!!!

I have appealed to you for help before and have pointed out how and why I believe support of Assoc. Prof. Olle Johansson by your Charity will "lead the way" toward preventing Leukaemia in children -- actually, an effort that will provide a wonderful opportunity for your Charity to not only raise awareness re cost-free EMF mitigation but also has the potential of being a "major fundraiser" for Children With Leukaemia!!!

Best wishes to all for good health and take care!!! Joanne

ACNEM letter in support of Olle Johansson’s continuing research

Last week I heard that Olle Johansson at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm has been denied any further funding to continue with his EMF research. Unfortunately this is all too frequently happening to independent researchers who dare report on finding non-thermal bio-effects. The cell phone industry is trying to convince governments and organisations with the bull-shit line that there is no need to do this type of research anymore as non-thermal effects do not exist and funding is better spent elsewhere.

Olle has written several papers in the Journal of the Australasian College of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) and you can access thes papers on //www.acnem.org

There is now an urgent need for people and organisations to write to the Karolinska Institute (details below) in support of reinstating further funding in order for Johansson to continue his important research.

Below is the content of a letter sent to Professor Harriet Wallberg-Henriksson, air-mailed today by Daan Spijer, CEO of ACNEM. I urge others to do similar.

Dear Professor,

It is with sadness that I learned recently that funding for research by Dr. Ölle Johansson into EMFs has been stopped. I understand that this is due to a lack of funds.

Dr Johansson has written a number of seminal articles for this College‚s Journal (see //www.acnem.org/journal ). These articles have had an impact in Australia on both government and public approaches to the proliferation of EMFs and the seemingly inexorable increase in the breadth and depth of the electromagnetic soup we live in.

Sweden is regarded in Australia as being in the forefront of research into and regulation of environmental pollution. It would set knowledge and understanding in this area back, if eminent researchers such as Dr Johansson were not able to continue their important work.

I ask that all possible efforts be made to find the funding necessary for Dr Johansson to continue his work.

Sincerely and with thanks,

Increase of breast cancer near antennas

The head of cancer registry in Berlin, Roland Stabenow informed the residents of Steinbach-Hallenberg in a recent conference, that there is an increase of 7 fold in breast cancer in their area (an area with cellular antennas). He emphasized that this is not a proof that the increase is linked to the antennas. He also talked about the causes of breast cancer. The attention to the place was drawn after a map was prepared by the residents and the cases are near the antennas.

EU Commission consultation on EMF's

The EU is inviting stakeholders to send comments with regards to EMFs and the effects on human health before

3rd November, 2006.

The Commission is in consultation with the Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR), is now inviting stakeholders to comment on the scientific opinion on "Possible effects of Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) on Human Health" which has just been finalized:

//ec.europa.eu/health/ph_risk/committees/04_scenihr/scenihr_cons_03_en.htm

The consultation will run until 3 November 2006 and the outcome will be published on the SCENIHR website:

//europa.eu.int/comm/health/ph_risk/committees/04_scenihr/04_scenihr_en.htm
//ec.europa.eu/health/ph_risk/committees/04_scenihr/scenihr_opinions_en.htm

This is an important inquiry and a fantastic opportunity to send research/information to the EU Commission which is encouraging.

Dear Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks,

I wish to inform you that I fully agree with Iris Atzmon. This subject needs thorough, INDEPENDENT research in order to find the damage to our well-being that non-thermal EMF is causing.

I lived near a cellphone tower for one year and it has completely damaged my nervous system. I also know of many innocent people that have had to move, quit their jobs , and cannot find remedy for their sensitivity to EMF. One lady that I knew could not stand to live in the bombardment of EMF in our atmosphere, she was found dead leaving behind a suicide note.

I ask you IS THIS THE WAY TO TREAT INNOCENT PEOPLE?

Two others I know, one a teacher and another, an office worker, have had to leave their jobs and try to find refuge from EMF. I had to leave a lovely home and am now living in a cabin in the woods, away from cellphone towers. I have received many calls for help over the passed ten years of research, from people that are desperate to find comfort and remedy.

I have read many scientific studies as well as surveys that were taken around cellphone towers and a lot show that there is danger to our health from the emissions. In fact I find more studies showing illness from EMF than from second hand smoke, yet many cities in Canada are banning smoking in public places due to possible effects to others. Why is EMF not being more closely looked at???? I find it is doing more harm than second hand smoke.

If you are interested in the preservation of human health I advise that the world standards be set at a density that dose not harm human health, even if it means shutting the wireless system down.!!!

Yours Truly

Non-thermal bio-effects found in study of Lookout Mountain residents

From Martin Weatherall:

PRESS RELEASE September 20, 2006

BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS FROM INCREASED BROADCAST RADIATION EXPOSURE CONFIRMED FOR LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN RESIDENTS

Summary of National Institute of Health (NIH)/Colorado State University (CSU) Study of Lookout Mountain Residents

Lookout Mountain Residents with increased amounts of broadcast radiation (RF) have statistically significant elevations of certain types of white blood cells that are immune system markers.

The National Institute of Environmental Health commissioned Colorado State University to examine the effects of long-term exposure to radiation on hundreds of residents of Lookout Mountain. This study follows the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment’s July 2004 findings that statistically significant elevated numbers of brain tumors exist in residents near the broadcast antennae towers atop Lookout Mountain.

Professor Jim Burch, M.S., Ph.D., one of the authors of the CSU study observes:

“This study does show biological changes in the Lookout Mountain residents’ immune system markers that are associated with RF. Various immune markers increase with increasing RF exposure. For example, the T cells and lymphocytes go up in a statistically significant manner with increases in RF. The reason for this reaction within the human body for this biological response in unclear. People with certain types of leukemia have high immune markers. The fact that there are RF limits imposed by the federal government shows that broadcast radiation is harmful beyond certain amounts. Everyone knows too much is hazardous. The issue is whether there are effects below the broadcast radiation levels that heat the body. In other words, are there also nonthermal effects? The CSU study was never designed to determine the risk of RF (radiofrequency radiation); it was designed to see if the RF caused changes in the biomarkers. No one study can prove or disprove the safety of broadcast radiation. This study shows there are some biological effects. ”

Currently, there are no FCC Standards designed for long-term radiation exposure. The present FCC radiation limits are designed to protect only against short-term adverse health effects caused by heating of the body, from sources such as microwaves. Federal health and safety agencies have not yet developed policies concerning possible risk from long-term, nonthermal exposures, such as experienced in the neighborhoods within five miles of the broadcast antennae towers This is the first official study to measure radiation amounts on Golden’s Lookout Mountain, Colorado State University’s Department of Environmental Health confirms that residents closest to the broadcast antennae towers experience high radiation levels: one in four Lookout Mountain residents experience radiation levels far in excess of the levels that the median population experiences. More specifically, those residents living in the same elevation levels as the towers have the highest radiation levels. As part of the CSU study, hundreds of residents were selected randomly and agreed to have their bodily functions measured and monitored for three consecutive days. This included wearing a ‘watch’ and fanny-pack devices that measured sleep patterns, cardiovascular and other vital signs. Participants gave blood samples and collected all urine output during that time period.

“Radio Frequency Non-Ionizing Radiation in a Community Exposed to Radio and Television Broadcasting”, addresses the amount of radiation in the area. That paper is published in the Environmental Health Perspectives, a National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences journal. The biological findings report has not yet been published but was obtained by a company pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act request to the National Institute of Health and referred to by a representative of the Lake Cedar Group Broadcasters at a public meeting last Thursday.

For a complete copy of published CSU’s paper, see //ehp.niehs.nih.gov/docs/admin/newest.html, papers dated 9/17-9/24. For the biological data and additional background, please visit the Canyon Area Residents for the Environment website: //www.c-a-r-e.org

Human Responses to Residential RF Exposure

Just received notice of the publication of an important new study by Dr. Jim Burch, formerly with Colorado Sate University, on Lookout Mountain in Golden, Colorado showing significant elevations of certain types of while blood cells that are immune system markers associated with exposure to radiofrequency radiation from TV broadcast towers located close to several thousand residences there.

There is no article by Burch a.o. in 9/17-9/23 (2006) of EHP. The only by Burch a.o. I find in EHP: //www.ehponline.org/members/2005/8237/8237.html and it is an investigation about RF levels, not about health markers.

The radiation goes up to levels between 5,000 and 2,000,000 mikroWatt/m2. In the EMF-Handbuch of the Ecolog Institute (2006) you find the attached tables. They are based on a thorough scientific overview.

Indications of increased cell proliferation from 1,000 mikroWatt/m2, weak indications of EHS from 2,000 mikroWatt/m2, consistent indications of nervous system impairment from 10,000 mikroWatt/m2, consistent indications of cell stress reactions from 50,000 mikroWatt/m2, etcetera.

This one I could find on the care-website, but not in EHP: //www.c-a-r-e.org/pdfs/CSU%20Final%20Report%208-24-05%20_2_.pdf

RF exposure group 3 does not fit in very well.
