Today, wireless technology is ubiquitous in many places. Since the 1980s, there has been an explosion in the popularity of mobile, wireless technology. At first, that sounds great, right? After all, what could be so bad about wireless? Sure, it isn’t secure, it isn’t reliable, it isn’t fast and it interferes with your social life, but what’s not to like about that?
Cell phones, cordless phones, walkie-talkies, WiFi, “smart”-meters, and all other wireless technologies, emit electromagnetic radiation, which the World Health Organization has classified as a Class 2B carcinogen (a carcinogen is something that can cause cancer). In the past 5 decades, there have been thousands of conclusive studies that state wireless technology has the ability to negatively affect health. Today, relatively few people know about this, because wireless companies that make trillions off of ignorant customers would like to keep their customers, well, ignorant. While 70% of non-industry studies have reported negative health effects associated with wireless, only 30% of industry studies report any such finding. By “conducting” their own studies and buying research, they have largely succeeded in preventing the public from knowing what they need to know. This website, and many others, aim to change that.
Today, a growing number of people are becoming aware of the health impacts. Wireless negatively affects all life, as we are all bioelectrical organisms. The cells in our bodies are incredibly complex life forms that have evolved over thousands of years to the natural background levels of RF radiation in our environment. Today, we are exposed to 100 million to 10 billion times more radiation than our grandparents were, and this radiation has been shown to have biological implications in thousands of peer-reviewed studies. The FCC standards are essentially useless, being at least 3 million times higher than levels at which severe biological implications have been observed at the cellular level. Wireless can tamper with, or alter our internal chemistry, since we are essentially a giant antenna. Not convinced? Here are just some of the things that wireless can cause – sleep disorders, insomnia, calcium efflux, difficulty concentrating, headaches, heart palpitations, cardiac stress, cancer, brain tumors, neuron damage, migraines, fatigue, negative thoughts, digestive problems, brain fog, DNA damage, memory loss, ADHD, autism, depression, stress, dizziness, cell mutations, decreased brain activity, neutralized sperm, infertility, asthma, allergies, rashes, and electro-hypersensitivity. In one such case, a man had a tumor the size of a tennis ball in his brain after using a cell phone for 1 year. Children are even more vulnerable, as their heads are smaller and they have higher water content, and thus they absorb more of the radiation – much of it penetrating deep into their brains. And we wonder why brain tumors have increase fivefold since the 1980s, autism rates are exponentially increasing, and today’s children complain of excessive fatigue and are more depressed than ever. Today’s schools, with their tablets, laptops, cell phones and Wi-Fi, are some of the most dangerous places in the community.
There is also the safety concern – more people had landlines in the 1950s century than do today – which may put countless lives in jeopardy. In an emergency, access to a landline telephone can be the difference between life and death.
Concerned? You should be. While the FCC and wireless carriers want to play games with your health, we think you should know the facts.
Please read this informational letter. We’ve crammed some great info into these 2 pages that you can share with your friends, family, and neighbors.
Please take a look at some great resources. Read a few articles; watch a few videos – hear what the experts have to say about this public health/safety crisis.
Finally, please consider signing petitions to ensure that everyone has universal, reliable, affordable access to landlines.
There are many reasons that wireless is a bad idea, namely:
- Health impacts
- Physiological health (changes in the environment and biology)
- Social health (increasing reliance on mobile devices for interaction and a lack of connection with the present)
- Psychological health (wireless devices can cause functional impairments and change human behavior)
Whatever you do, don’t do nothing! Wireless is, without a doubt, the biggest public crisis of the 21st century – from a health, safety, privacy, and functionality standpoint. Some people may also believe that there is no relationship between wireless and negative health effects. If anyone tells you that wireless is safe, DO NOT LISTEN TO THEM. There have been thousands of studies, and there are millions around the world who are disabled because of wireless and/or have had their health negatively affected by wireless. You can read some testimonies here from people all over the United States who experienced severe health issues due to just smart-meters alone. Big corporations and utilities will try to mislead you so they can profit from ignorant customers. Many people refuse to believe it as they do not want to give up their “convenient” lifestyle. They may jokingly ask if you’re wearing a tin-foil hat. Don’t believe that the FCC will protect you either – for many years, the government told us that tobacco and lead were perfectly safe – and the FCC doesn’t even deal with health effects (more info in the letter above). You may be new to the issue and you may not know what to believe. That’s why we’ve compiled dozens of resources for you to take a look at! Remember, anyone who says that wireless is safe or does not cause any negative health effects is either lying, misinformed, ignorant, or stupid. The truth is that wireless is not safe and cannot be made safe! Don’t let people who want your money or are misinformed dictate your health and safety – be proactive today! (If you know anyone who is in denial about the risks and consequences of wireless, bring them to this site.)
SaveLandlines and StopSmartMeters, both organizations that we are proud members of, are sites run by activists all around the world. Our goal is to ensure that secure, safe, speedy and reliable wired technologies remain an option for all while warning the public that wireless is insecure, unreliable, slow, and most of all, harmful to health.
Please share this site with your friends and family, as well as those in your community and anyone else with eyes or ears – as a non-profit, we rely heavily on word of mouth. You can support us by going to Stop Smart Meters’ Donation page.
