Mr. McKinnon,

You don’t know me and I’m not in your riding but perhaps the information below will be self explanatory.

I would like to thank you for sponsoring the petition regarding cell tower buffer-zones around schools and playgrounds.  We desperately need to reduce exposure especially of children to microwave radiation.

Yesterday (May 7) you were criticized unfairly in the Tri-City News.

I sent a letter to the editor but seldom do these letters get published, especially one that criticizes a reporter for being biased.   So I thought I would send you a copy.

In the event it is NOT published I will post it on my website and circulate it broadly.

We need people who are not afraid to speak the truth and who are willing to take a stand that may not be popular.

If there is anything I can do to support you as you engage the government to follow-up on the HESA recommendations please let me know.  I testified at both the 2010 and 2015 meetings and am deeply committed to and concerned about this issue.

Thank you for your courage and your integrity.

Kind regards,

-magda

Response by Dr. Anthony Miller and Frank Clegg to Tri-City News Editor re “Coquitlam-PoCo MP sponsors petition that says cell towers could hurt children, trigger cancer Article – May 08, 2020

May 08, 2020

Mr. Richard Dal Monte, EditorTri-City News                                              1680 Broadway Street, Unit 118, Port Coquitlam, B.C. V3C 2M

Sent via email: <newsroom@tricitynews.com>

Subject: Need for a balanced report versus the Tri-City News report Coquitlam-PoCo MP sponsors petition that says cell towers could hurt children, trigger cancer

Dear Mr. Dal Monte:

We believe the article May 7th, Coquitlam-PoCo MP sponsors petition that says cell towers could hurt children, trigger cancer does not represent all the facts on this important issue. We request that you review the material we present here on 5G and pre-5G radiation, and subsequently write a truly balanced story….

MP McKinnon is not the first MP, or chair of the Commons standing committee on health, to present a document to the House of Commons, on behalf of constituents, expressing concern for the harmful effects from radiofrequency (RF) radiation.

In 2015, the House of Commons Standing Committee on Health (HESA) published a report entitled Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Radiation and the Health of Canadians.3 Its 12 recommendations addressed several of the issues outlined below, and included a national awareness campaign about the harmful effects of wireless technologies and how to reduce risks. The report received all-party support and was tabled by the Conservative (2015) and Liberal (2016) majority governments. In 2010, a similar report was published.4 Both reports were tabled by the Health Committee Chair.

The May 7th report lacked balance and downplayed many aspects of the serious concerns about this technology. We would like to direct you to the article written about 5G and the burning of towers by our colleague, Dr. Devra Davis, an epidemiologist with outstanding credentials. Dr. Davis, among other notable accomplishments, helped to have lead removed from gasoline and smoking banned from planes….

Regarding the effects of radiation from wireless technology on children, we would like to direct you to two articles: Exposure limits: the underestimation of absorbed cell phone radiation, especially in children and Absorption of wireless radiation in the child versus adult brain and eye from cell phone conversation or virtual reality ; peer reviewed, published papers that show evidence that wireless radiation does, in fact, impact children more than adults.

The statements by Steven Salzberg, “There’s no science behind them at all. The science is very clear on that,” is false. Biologists and epidemiologists are the experts raising concerns about the harmful effects from RF radiation. Hundreds of peer-reviewed, scientific publications describe biological effects and harms with exposures far below Canada’s limits (based on heating tissue), in humans.  These studies scientifically demonstrate cause or contribution to numerous health effects including cancers, sperm damage, reproductive harms, learning and memory deficits, and neurodegenerative, cellular and genetic damage….”

[Press release] The Court of Appeal of Turin (Italy) confirms the link between a head tumour and mobile phone use by Phonegate Alert – January 15, 2020

Published The January 15, 2020
Dear supporters,

This decision of the Court of Appeal of Turin is historic!
https://www.phonegatealert.org/en/the-court-of-appeal-of-turin-confirms-the-link-between-a-head-tumour-and-mobile-phone-use

(….This is the second Italian appeal judgment in favour of a worker after the Brescia judgment in 2010, which concluded with the confirmation of the Supreme Court in 2012, case of Marcolini v. INAIL.

In this case, the Court of Bergamo had rejected the application in first instance.

A landmark judgment that will have international repercussions

The Romeo v. INAIL case is therefore historic. It is the first in world judicial history to have had two consecutive judgments in favour of the plaintiff. It is also historic because of the principles underlying this decision and particularly because it is written about the conflicts of interest of certain experts close to the mobile phone industry.

Conflicts of interest and the role of the ICNIRP pinpointed by the Tribunal

Indeed, the Tribunal recognizes that telephone industry-funded scientists, or members of the ICNIRP, are less reliable than independent scientists: ….)

Thank you for relaying it as widely as possible.

Phonegate Scandal: Environmental Health Trust and Phonegate Alert Call for Congressional Hearings on Illegal Phone Radiation – January 12, 2020

(click on photo to enlarge)

Published the January 12, 2020
In a joint letter, Environmental Health Trust (EHT) and Phonegate Alert (AP) called on congressional leaders to end the failure of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to provide appropriate ways to test cellphones and to recall the millions of devices that French government and other independent assessments find emitting excessive levels of radiation.The letter included a report, “Background and facts documenting Phonegate,” detailing numerous serious shortcomings of the FCC.

The letter is supported by President of Consumers for Safe Cell Phones, Cindy Franklin, and the California Brain Tumor Association, Ellen Marks, who join in demanding that investigations be launched to shed light on this widespread industrial deception and its consequences for the health of millions.

Recent FCC position papers show how the US telecom regulator does not make its decisions with the necessary neutrality with regard to public health issues.

Summary of Phone Gate Precautionary Measures by André Fauteux – November 20, 2019

From: André Fauteux <andre@maisonsaine.ca>
Sent: November 20, 2019
Subject: France adopts precautionary measures to limit cell-phone radiation exposure

Precautions to be taken by the holders of electronic implants       (cardiac pacemakers, insulin pumps, neurostimulators …)         concerning in particular the distance between the radio equipment and the implant (15 centimeters in the case of the strongest sources of exposure like the mobile phones).
 
B. – Information on the behaviors to be adopted to reduce exposure to radiation emitted by radio equipment
 
. Use the radio equipment in good reception conditions to reduce the amount of radiation received.
. Use a hands-free kit or loudspeaker, if suitable for radio        equipment.
. Make reasonable use of radio equipment such as mobile phones, by children and teenagers, for example by avoiding nocturnal calls and by limiting the frequency and duration of calls.
. Keep radio equipment away from pregnant women’s belly.
. Keep radio equipment away from the lower abdomen of teenagers.

In July 2019 (updated in September 2019), the French Public Health Agency “Santé Publique France“, together with the Francim cancer registries, the Hospices Civils de Lyon and the Institut National du Cancer, published national estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in metropolitan France between 1990 and 2018. These are based on the modeling of observed incidence data (new cases) until 2015 by cancer registries, supplemented by projections until 2018.

Volume 1 of the report is devoted to solid tumors (27 tumors and 22 subtypes). Between 1990 and 2018, the overall incidence rate of solid tumors remained relatively stable in men and continued to increase in women. At the same time, the annual number of new cases of glioblastoma with histological confirmation (one of the most aggressive types of brain cancer) has increased fourfold and more for both sexes.

In 20 years, the number of glioblastomas multiplied by 4, affecting all ages

Santé Publique France estimates that there will be 3,481 new cases of these glioblastomas in metropolitan France in 2018, 58% of them in men. There were only 823 in 1990….

ANSES recommendations call upon the public authorities and industry to face their health responsibilities – Anses Experts Report re Mobile Phones Worn Close to the Body and Health – Alert Phone Gate – October 21, 2019

The French National Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES) has just made public the first part of its expert group report entitled “Mobile phones close to the body and health“, dated July 2019. For Dr. Marc Arazi, who launched the alert on the Phonegate scandal in July 2016:

“This is undoubtedly a great step forward and a tremendous recognition for our international alert action. The public and industrial authorities are now faced with their responsibilities and must inform mobile phone users of the health risks involved.”

This had been expected since the end of 2017, following our appeal to the public authorities and the request made by the General Directorate of Health (Ministry for Solidarity and Health) and the Directorate of Risk Prevention (Ministry for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition) to ANSES to be informed of the health risks for adults and children exposed to specific absorption rate (SAR) levels of more than 2 W/kg (European legal limit).

In the next few days, we are going to analyze this 128-page report with the members of our international scientific committee.

Our initial reaction, however, to the recommendations of ANSES is positive. Here is the conclusion of the report signed by the Director General of ANSES, Roger Genet: ….
