I sent this to Rep. Ron Young & Senator John Eklund today, as they represent my Ohio District. I will be sending more letters to more Politicians soon, as the only way this can change is at a Federal level….
Dear Representative Young,
This is just a follow up to a phone call I made to your office concerning the health hazards of smart meters, & hopefully legislation to make Ohio an “opt out” State. I live in Mentor, Ohio 44060 & I am voicing my strong opposition to smart meters from the electric company…or even possibly the gas company down the road. I called First Energy & the PUCO, &they told me that all of Ohio will get smart meters eventually & as of now, OH residents will not have the right to opt out. I am speaking for myself & hundreds of others I know who are extremely concerned about the health hazards of RF radiation & the blanket of electro-smog that will be added to our neighborhoods should smart meters be implemented. It is bad enough that this entire area is being absolutely saturated with cellular towers, that have zero safety regulations. The cell towers are going up at an alarming rate & according to top level FCC reps that I spoke with, the Telecommunication Companies are significantly increasing the number of frequencies at all the base stations. The FCC rep stated to me that this increase in the number of frequencies, & the increase in the number of base stations does in fact mean a significant increase in radiation exposure to everyone! My parents just recently had 3 cell towers put up in a one mile radius around their beautiful home. Both my parents, myself, & their neighbors, are now experiencing significant high pitched ringing in our ears, headaches, insomnia, & fatigue because of the RF radiation from the 3 cell towers. The Telecommunications Act of 1996 specifically prevents a cell tower from being removed due to health hazard reasons. In fact the Telecommunications industry currently has a free hand to put up as many towers as they like, anywhere they please, & increase the frequencies with absolute zero regulation or safety standards. As a result, my parents are being forced to look for a safer place to live. The problem is that so many towers have recently been installed in North East Ohio, there is virtually no place to run! We have RF meters that measure the amount of radiation coming from the towers & wi-fi that is in virtually every building/store/restaurant now days. The amount of RF radiation that people are being subjected to on a daily basis, just driving down the road, or going in a store is staggering! I have worked in health care for 9 years & have personally seen the serious negative effects to RF exposure. The most common symptoms are inability to sleep, fatigue, headaches, ADHD or Autism (complete inability to focus attention/lack of attention span), all kinds of hormone disruptions, thyroid trouble, weight gain, vision & hearing loss, & etc. In fact while I had the FCC representative on the phone, he was trying to tell me how safe RF radiation was until he looked at his computer screen & stated: “Oh this just came in. The I.A.R.C. (cancer research branch of the W.H.O.) just issued Monograph 102, which now officially classifies RF cellular radiation as a level 2B human carcinogen which is in the same category as power lines”. There are mountains of official evidence showing the health hazards of RF radiation! Please take a look at the BioInitiative reports of 2007 & 2012, & the BioInitiative Press release of 2013. Also see the Office of Naval Research – “Biological effects of non ionizing electromagnetic radiation”, which clearly states all of the hazardous effects of “all abnormal, man-made electromagnetic fields, regardless of their frequencies”. Everything from cell damage to alterations in learning ability is clearly covered in the Naval report! The public has clearly been mislead & uninformed for many years as to the hazards of RF radiation. The FCC currently has an open docket (13-84) which re investigates the safety of RF radiation, however the media & the government has not been informing the people that now is their chance to make a comment or input on the FCC docket. The FCC rep even admitted to me that their website is extremely user-unfriendly & the docket is very difficult to find & navigate. I needed to be guided over the phone just to find it & understand how to properly submit the form! Children are most at risk to this RF radiation & they are having it forced upon them at almost all of the schools & libraries now! This BioInitiative & I.A.R.C. information is fairly recent, & it is alarming how fast cell towers, smart meters, & wireless teaching devices in schools & libraries are being implemented as we speak. Parents have no idea that this technology could be harmful to their children because there are no warnings on the products & there is nothing from the Government or Media revealing the Truth about the health hazards. It is almost impossible to find a child of any age without a phone in their hand these days, & they are completely addicted! It is only because of my personal experiences in health care & my sensitivity to RF that I absolutely know we are in “epidemic” right now! Virtually everybody is suffering one way or another from RF exposure…they just do not understand where it is coming from. One of the biggest offenders are the wireless routers that are being put in everyone’s homes. The people are not informed that the routers are constantly emitting a powerful plume of RF radiation 24/7. People that suffer the most are the ones that have the router in their bedroom, because they can’t fall asleep or get quality sleep. The same can be said for the new smartphones that constantly emit powerful radiation while they search for towers. No one is aware that they are constantly being radiated even when they are not using their phone! During the past 2-3 years, I have witnessed hundreds of patients being bounced around to various doctors & specialists, & being put on all kinds of serious medications like Adderall because there doctors have no idea that their problems are coming from RF radiation exposure in their own home or from their wireless device. Conventional US doctors primarily follow the FDA, & the FDA will not say RF is hazardous unless the FCC declares it. This proliferation of RF radiation has gotten completely out of control, & the ever increasing number of people like myself that are hypersensitive to it, have virtually no where to go! Their are so many cell towers now & wi-fi everywhere, it is like being a prisoner! I cannot go anywhere without wearing protective RF shielding & I know many others that are not far behind me. Now they want to force smart meters on our homes!!! This is truly Radiation Without Representation! This insanity must be addressed & stopped before the lid on this health hazard epidemic gets completely blown off. From what I have seen, the bubble is ready to burst at any moment right now! It will only be a matter of time before people start to make the connection where their pain & problems are coming from. The deception has been pulled off by keeping the doctors & the media in the dark. Sir, I am speaking for many others when I beg you to please create some legislation so that we can at the very least opt out from smart meters in Ohio. A number of other states including Michigan & California have already passed opt out legislation based on health hazards of RF radiation. I also sincerely request that you take a very close look at all of the above stated issues, & please begin the process of returning this Government to an entity that has the safety & well being of the People as it’s primary directive. Please take a stand against the runaway Telecommunications juggernaut & do what is right! This thing can be turned around, but action must be taken now! It is already almost too late. The Telecommunications Act of 1996 MUST be amended to put human safety before cell tower placement. The FCC MUST acknowledge the mountains of evidence proving the hazards of RF radiation, & the FDA MUST inform the medical community & doctors of RF/wireless hazards. If the Truth continues to be ignored as it has been for decades, then the end result will be a Country crippled by epidemic levels of disabled people. This is obviously a Global issue, but the least we can do is start to address the problem here & now. We have to start somewhere before it is too late!
Thank you very much for your time & attention to this matter.
