I wish every neighborhood had a cafe like this. Faraday Cafe recently opened in Vancouver. It's a two-week experiment with EMF shielding on the walls that blocks out the wireless signals. No laptops, no iPads, no cell phones. Just people talking to each other and reading things that are more than three paragraphs long. Can you imagine?
Something tells me these guys won't be visiting Faraday Cafe..... Warning: this is actually funny!
The downside of Wi-Fi in schools is showing up more and more in the press. What this excellent report from Australia misses is that most of the children are affected biologically by the microwave radiation from the Wi-Fi routers, but only a few show symptoms right away. Take a look for yourself:
For the past few months, my wife, Katharina, and I have been busy giving presentations about the health effects of wireless technology. We make a great team. As a medical doctor, she covers the current science and provides helpful suggestions to minimize health effects. As an engineer, I present the solutions that can be easily implemented to use technology safely. We love doing this and our audiences have been incredibly engaged and empowered.
Here are some of the venues we have presented recently:
We are currently in Austria, raising awareness about wireless "smart" meters, which are slated to be installed here starting later this year (despite considerable negative public opinion regarding the smart meter programs). If you know anyone in Europe that would like to reach us and possibly schedule a talk, please send us a message.
** Q&A about safe tech solutions that followed a screening of the new film Take Back Your Power.
When ever I am in the SF Bay Area, I notice that an incredible amount of people drive around while using/talking on their smart phones. It has become an epidemic as people are quite literally addicted to their phones. Yet, the human brain can only focus on one thing at a time, which this video shows:
Kudos to this organization which is bringing to light one of the most important aspects of EMF pollution - how it affects fetuses. The BabySafe Project just announced their website. Share this video with parents-to-be:
Real life is so much more interesting than what can be found on an iPhone....
Around the world, ordinary citizens and their elected officials are speaking out against wireless smart meters and the wireless smart grid. Watch how this city councilman from Massachusetts speaks truth to the power company representative. The world is waking up to the risks of EMF pollution.
This Saturday evening I will be on a panel after a screening of "Take Back Your Power", a new documentary film about wireless smart meters. If you are in the SF Bay Area, come join us!
You can get your free tickets for the screening here: www.takebackyourpower.net
I wrote an article on smart meters, EMF health effects and the "Internet of Things" that was featured this month in Common Ground, a popular San Francisco Bay Area magazine. You can read the article online here or in this file:
What a journey this has been. After spending much of the past year outside the country trying to heal my body, I have returned to the Bay Area to work. However, my first month back in Silicon Valley was filled with sleepless nights and terrible headaches. The Los Gatos neighborhood I was staying in has become a place I can no longer live because of its high levels of EMF pollution.
This was not always the case. Just a few years ago, before wireless "smart" meters were installed, I was healthy as could be in this very same place. I slept sound and had never experienced a headache in my life. The difference between then and now is like night and day for my health.
As you can see in the photo above, I have found a temporary solution. Just a few miles away in the Santa Cruz Mountains above Silicon Valley, I have found a protected valley where I can pitch my tent every night. I have been doing this for the past month, through rain, cold temperatures and tremendous inconvenience.
Every night, I walk a few hundred meters with all my camping gear and set up my tent in the dark. Every morning, I wake, take down my tent, walk back to my car and head back to my office. On the nights when it is raining hard, I sleep in my car until it stops, then go set up my tent. If it starts to rain early in the morning, I wake and pack up my gear so that my tent is not soaking wet for the following night.
It hasn’t been easy and most people still do not understand why I would do this. Yet, finding a safe place to sleep has been vital for my health. I can sleep again (even though I miss the comfort of a bed) and my headaches go away for those hours when I am up in that valley. This makes my days easier.
Nearly three years after the installation of wireless "smart" meters made it so that my body reacts to microwave radiation and electrical pollution, it has become incredibly difficult to find a safe place to call home. This is true for so many others as well. It has been such a frustrating and, at times, overwhelming situation to be in. Yet, I am hopeful that society will wake up to the dangers of filling our communities with EMF pollution. Until that time, I have a feeling I will be spending many more nights in my tent.
I found these signs posted in the heart of Silicon Valley yesterday:
There is a saying that the antidote often grows next to the poison. Silicon Valley is the center of wireless technology and many here are seeing dollar signs as the next new thing is to quite literally connect everything we own to the internet via pulsed digital microwave radiation (a probable carcinogen). It is called the "Internet of Things" and is a dystopian nightmare if you actually think about it. However, everywhere I go and with most people that I speak to, there is an emerging understanding that this technology is dangerous. It appears people are catching on....
These business and home owners are certainly wise to fight the new cell tower on the block (a six story behemoth amongst one story buildings). As this scene from the film "Resonance - Beings of Frequency" shows, there is much to be concerned about.
Henrik Eiriksson has been running the Mast-Victims.org website since 2005. Over 11 million visitors have viewed this site. His story, and that of his parents who became electro-hypersensitive (EHS) because of a cell tower, are becoming all too common.
