Fight the power of your powergrids. By THANE BURNETT, Toronto, Sunday November 12, 2006.


New kind of smog

From emissions from their cordless phones to the waves of energy being spit out by the fluorescent bulb over their kitchen sink, Wolfe and Wood feel sickened by a new kind of smog.

Some Swedish estimates say about 3% of the population is sick from the power surges around us.

IMMEDIATE RELEASE . September 19, 2006
Elizabeth Kelley, ICEMS Management Secretariat
Scientists Urge Greater Precaution and Independent Research, to Protect Health from Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields.
A group of scientists are urging people to take sensible precautions against potential health risks related to exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF).

They also call for a full and independent review of the scientific evidence that points to hazards from current EMF exposure conditions world-wide, and for an independent, publicly managed research program to investigate critical issues of health and safety.

At a meeting held in Benevento, Italy in last February, 2006, these scientists reviewed current scientific evidence on potential health effects related to EMF exposure in the extremely-low frequency (ELF) and radiofrequency (RF) band of the electromagnetic spectrum (0-300GHz).

Energies of these frequencies, called non-ionizing, are used in electrical transmission, distribution and electrical use by the public, by radio and television broadcasts, cellular transmissions, wireless internet access and more. Press Release PDF

When you turn on the lights, dirty electricity may be affecting your health. So say Joy Cardin's guests, who say electricity pollution is widespread, but offer ways to stem the problem.
Guests: Dave Stetzer, industrial electrician, and president of Stetzer Electric. Magda Havas, professor of environmental and resources studies, Trent University, Ontario. She's conducted several studies of the health effects of dirty electricity.

Kevin Byrne is a man in the prime of his life who feared he had an old man's problems. Last summer, he was devastated by chronic back pain and thought his hips were about to give out.

As a healthy man in his late 40s, Kevin Byrne couldn't understand what was causing his chronic back and hip pain. X-rays by his doctor yielded no results.
"The pain was so intense, it just didn't seem right," said Byrne, appearing on CTV's Canada AM Wednesday.

There's something lonely about parties. Especially if you're one of the few who isn't celebrating. And as laptop lovers citywide rejoice in the announcement that downtown Toronto will be a wireless Internet hot spot by the fall, critics worry that we may be feeding a new form of smog that hangs in the air without a trace and makes a growing number of us sick: electrical pollution.

Electrical Pollution: No Place to Hide

How Dirty Electricity may be affecting your Health.

Protect yourself and your family from the harmful effects of electromagnetic pollution! Are your kids in front of the computer all day? Any effects?


David Stetzer
Internationally Renowned Electromagnetic Radiation Expert

Dave Stetzer, President of Stetzer Electric in Wisconsin, is a power quality expert whose research is recognized worldwide on issues related to ground current and dirty electricity.  
He has served as an expert witness at hearings and is an advisor to the Ministry of Health in Kazakhstan and Russia.  
He co-invented the microsurge meter (which measures dirty electricity) and the Graham/Stetzer filter (which improves power quality) with Professor Emeritus Dr. Martin Graham at UC Berkley.

Dr Magda Havas, B.Sc., Ph.D (Toronto)
Environmental and  Resource Science/Studies, Trent University

Dr. Magda Havas, Associate Professor at Trent  University,  teaches and does research on the biological effects of environmental contaminants.
Her current research documents the effects of electromagnetic pollution, in the form of dirty electricity and radio frequency radiation, on people who may be electrically sensitive-especially those living with diabetes, multiple sclerosis or chronic fatigue.  
Her research shows that poor power quality is making people sick.  
Fifty percent  of the population may be affected by this form of pollution without knowing it.
