Wireless “Smart” Meter Warnings
By Warren WoodwardThis month there were a couple of very important developments regarding the near constant microwave transmissions of “smart” meters that the utility industry insists are safe.
The Appeal requests of all U.N. member states that:

Arizonans can be proud that this effort was spearheaded by Elizabeth Kelley in Tucson.
Another important development occurred May 7th when the Canadian Medical Association Journal published an article about wireless transmissions. I'll let Canadians For Safe Technology (C4ST) tell the story. Incidentally, C4ST's CEO, Frank Clegg is the former president of Microsoft Canada.
Canadian Medical Association Journal reports Health Canada's wireless limits are "A Disaster to Public Health"
May 7, 2015 /CNW/ - The Canadian Medical Association Journal today published a
scathing condemnation of Health Canada's safety guidelines for cell phones and WiFi.
The Journal (CMAJ) interviewed multiple international experts in radiation and cancer, who warn that the microwave levels allowed in Canadian classrooms, residences and workplaces are, "a disaster to public health."
One scientist said that given the overwhelming evidence that wireless radiation is harmful, Health Canada staff are either, "unwilling or not competent to make evaluation of the current literature."
The article points out that Canada's Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health recently completed three days of hearings on Canada's safety guidelines, and sent federal scientists back to the office to re-examine 140 recent studies that show wireless radiation emitted by cell phones and WiFi can cause harm.
One oncologist interviewed by the CMAJ said that Canada's safety guidelines for wireless radiation need to be "urgently revised" due to the obvious risk of cancer.
The CMAJ article revealed that James McNamee, who wrote Health Canada's safety code, has also co-authored academic papers with scientists who openly accept payments from the wireless industry.
"That Canada's wireless safety code is out of date and mired in conflict of interest is no longer a question it's a fact," said Frank Clegg, CEO of Canadians For Safe Technology (C4ST).
"We're hoping the Parliamentary Standing Committee will have strong recommendations to fix it," said Clegg.
