One of my readers, Louise Brosnan, sent me an excellent email recounting her experience with EMFs. Here it is in its entirety.
As some of you are aware I have been struggling with the very serious effects of chronic radiation poisoning from mobile and wireless devices that use microwave radiation. My story goes back some time and I am happy to share it with you personally at any time.
Suffice to say that the connection between the cause described and the serious symptoms I suffer is direct and most of the symptoms dissipate when the cause is removed.
I suffer from excruciating migraines, nausea, lower back pain and stress and in cases of severe exposure prolonged periods of vomiting that have resulted in hospitalisation. Insomnia and extreme tiredness are companions.
In addition I have suffered all the multifarious effects of hormone disruption including low thyroid, adrenal stress, otherwise unexplained weight gain (a type of brittle diabetes) and infertility.
My freedom of movement has been severely restricted. Being unable to be near Wi Fi, mobile phones (in use or in silent mode), cordless phones of any type, cell phone towers, smart meters etc. means that I cannot go to a restaurant, a movie, a meeting, travel on a bus, train or taxi or even take my children to a park where local councils have gratuitously installed Wi Fi, without getting very very sick.
During the course of understanding my illness and its cause, I have spent 100’s of hours researching the effects of microwave radiation and I have been well and truly shocked by what I have found. Needless to say I am not the first one and there are concerned citizens the world over who have been afflicted or informed and are now sounding the alarm.
I feel compelled to do the same. Hence this letter to my friends and colleagues.
I will tell you a little about what I have found below. However, at the outset I do implore you to take this issue seriously. I know that it is tempting to avoid this issue, particularly as technology is so intensely integrated into our lives and also it can be most convenient and enjoyable. I too love technology, I no longer appreciate it though for what it has done to me and what it most certainly will do to my family and friends and humanity generally, if action is not taken to make serious changes.
The same technology we now use can be delivered on wired devices often faster and more securely that on wireless devices and mobile phones can be made to use frequencies that are not harmful to human biology. But this will only be done if ordinary citizens express appropriate outrage and say – ENOUGH.
Now let me share some of the facts I have found –
- Mobile phones and Wi-Fi use the exact same Frequencies as Microwave ovens. They are harmful to human biology because these frequencies act on water in the human body. Microwave ovens work by “heating” the water in food, they do the same in our bodies when we make a phone call or wander into a café for a coffee with Wi-Fi. (Refer to the work of Barry Trower, former British military intelligence scientist. For years he has worked in microwave and stealth warfare, and his particular expertise is on the impact of this radiation on health and brain functioning)
- The power used by mobile phone and Wi-Fi is greater than a microwave, but the mobile phones and Wi-Fi etc. have no shielding – they have no door! Using your phone is like using an open Microwave
- Scientists can now predict whether a child will have Autism by the amount of radiation in the sleeping environment of the mother while she is pregnant (refer Dr Dietrich Klinghardt, a leading authority on Electric sensitivity, in a new 42-minute video called “Smart Meters and EMR: Health Crisis of our Time” (www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_
wxM6IAF1I&feature=colike). This is particularly frightening as Autism as an autoimmune disease is likely to arise when a child is faced with a toxic storm of chemical poisonings, poor nutrition and other environmental exposures – in this regard I highly recommend you all read the book “A Compromised generation” by Beth Lambert
- One minute of mobile phone use does the same damage to our DNA as one (1) XRAY. Are not we all being told now to limit our life time exposure to XRAY’s? (refer to the Reflex Report)
- Young children (including those in the Womb) and pregnant mothers, the elderly and the sick are most in danger.
o The microwaves can damage the genetic structure in the ovaries. So, when a young girl grows up, gets married, and has children, if she has a daughter, this particular mitochondrial genetic damage is irreparable. There is nothing at all that can repair it, if she has a daughter, the daughter will carry that genetic deformity, and her daughter will carry it, and her daughter will carry it. So, it isn’t a game anymore, it isn’t a little box that you can press buttons and run around in, and have fun with, we are now seriously jeopardizing the future generations for as long as there is a female line of our children’s children’s children, and that is to me the most scariest aspects of all of this….(Dr Barry Trower)
o In the UK, Spain and France (in studies in 2003 and 2006) over 177 schools were found to have leukaemia clusters of 11 students each. That is almost 2,000 children in total. Each school had a cell tower within it. Wi-Fi in a classroom has been found to have three (3X) times the radiation of a cell tower when standing underneath it. Are you happy that many many Australian schools classrooms have Wi-Fi? Are you happy that this Wi-Fi is in kindergartens? Why is it necessary when wired access to the internet is faster and more secure? Rates of childhood leukaemia in the USA for example were 3.3 in 1975 and 14.8 in 2004, what is going on in these schools with rates of 11 in populations of 300,500, 1000, 2000? Are you still happy your child has Wi-Fi in the classroom? Are you still happy to have Wi-Fi in your home? I mean these are alarming statistics. And what about adults? What about teachers? What about people living in the houses nearby that are not children?
o Research shows, two (2) minutes of mobile phone exposure disturbs the brain functioning of a child for over one hour.
- What happens, if you have your cell phone next to your bed, it is emitting microwaves if it is on standby. The microwaves go into the body and they influence a chemical known as melatonin. The melatonin goes around the body at night mopping up cancer cells that we can produce every day, so if your cell phone is on beside your bed when you are sleeping, which is the most dangerous time of the day, when you wake up, your immune system can be 40% less effective than when you went to bed
I have personally written to my children’s School expressing my concern over its use of Wi Fi. I have also notified the School that I do not consent to my children being so exposed.
I have attached for you very useful readings. Please do not discard them because I can personally assure you that sooner or later you will find that you wished you had read them. Print them out for later reading over a coffee.
I can also highly recommend the following books –
- The Force by Australian author Lyn McLean
- Disconnect by Devra Davis
And the following online sources (among many)
- For a comprehensive review of the scientific research available of the effects of microwave radiation google “The BioInitiative 2012 Report” which has been prepared by 29 authors from ten countries, ten holding medical degrees (MDs), 21 PhDs, and three MsC, MA or MPHs. Among the authors are three former presidents of the Bioelectromagnetics Society, and five full members of BEMS. Summary extracts are attached to this email
- Electricsense.com – comprehensive information about the effects and practical steps to take to reduce exposure
My apologies for bombarding you with such a lengthy note and attachments. I would not do so if it were not so important.
Please pass on my message and attachments freely and use them as you see appropriate. Please contact me also if you need assistance.

DO NOT Consent to Wi Fi in Schools
The placement of this technology in classrooms without informed parental consent is
more than concerning. It is a violation of parental rights and the likely cause of
learning, behavioural and health-related problems such as ADD/ADHD in children.
Such problems likely stem from, and will eventually be traceable, in part, to Wi-Fi in
The world is toxic enough without toxic learning environments for children.
Wi-Fi is a relatively new technology, promoted by the industry, and eagerly accepted
by educators who see it as a powerful and convenient learning tool. This does not
mean that it is safe. This does not mean that those using and promoting it have
been informed. Educators, and the children they instruct, are being swept along a
dangerous path in order to participate in “progress.”
The options are not backward or onerous. Wired technology has been in place for
years now, and it is far less expensive, safer, more secure and faster than wireless.
It respects the Precautionary Principle and is supportive of the welfare of the
children who will be our future.
