ZigBee – Here it comes, ready or not

ZigBee-001

 

Do you know much about ZigBee?

The ZigBee network system that will talk to all of your utilities like the furnace,  stove, and dishwasher, is coming down the tracks and like it or not, it will be a major factor in most homes in the next 3 years or so.

There are many benefits according to the industry that is building all of the electronics that make up the ZIGBEE system.  Life is going to be so much better and happier and easier with ZIGBEE.  Just think, you can check on the temperature of your refrigerator from work or turn on the furnace automatically on your way home or dim the dining room lights from your smart phone.

However, there are many problems that have been identified about the ZIGBEE system:

RF Radiation will be increased and will be generated by ALL of your household electronic devices:  lights,  TV,  DishWasher, Stove, Clothes Washer/Dryer,  and even smart light bulbs.  The home will be awash in RF.

There are many people now that are EHS  (if you do not know what this means then do a search).  Estimates are that 10% of the general population are EHS now.  Researchers believe that this rate is increasing and soon will be 50%.  Does that mean that all homes with Smart Meters and the symbiotic ZIGBEE network will be toxic to a major segment of the population and will decrease their level of health and enjoyment of life?  There are studies that show RF Radiation has a detrimental effect on health especially in the fetus and young children.  RF Radiation has been shown to cause cancer (see Cell phone brain cancer studies).

Privacy –  Hackers will be able to find out so much about the lives of the residents of the house:  how many people are living there,  estimates on gender,  estimates on age range.  Marketing firms will be able to send advertising specifically to the target group. eg.  if you have young children then you will have marketing specifically for young children. etc.   Governmental security agencies will certainly be using this to spy on suspects. (good or bad?)

Security –  Hackers will find ways of using your ZIGBEE system to get as much information from your house as possible.  If they can steal a billion dollars from many banks (this is just in the news) then hacking the Smart Grid and your ZibBee house network should not be much of a problem.  Scenario –  Hacker turns off the power to the freezer while you are away for the weekend and all of your frozen food is now unfrozen.  Hmmm,  what to do?

Control – If all of your electronics are on the ZIGBEE network and you have some control over them, THEN agencies outside of your home will also have control over them.  This is a 1984 scenario.  Your air conditioning can be turned off when there is not enough electricity for everyone.  Is this good or bad?  The channel that you are watching on TV will be known by the ZIGBEE (maybe) and thus fed to a polling agency or marketing agency.  You may not be able to turn on the clothes dryer at supper time because the power company tells the ZIGBEE unit to prevent use until 10 pm, for instance.

It is going to be very interesting to see how this plays out.

The Electromagentic Age – A sleeping Giant by Dr Mac Paterson

Dr Mac Paterson gave a presentation in Kaleden BC on Saturday Feb 21, 2015.  The presentation was attended by about 250 people.

The presentation is not available yet on video but hopefully it soon will be.

Dr Paterson is scheduled to give the presentation in Kelowna and Salmon Arm next month, so watch for the dates and locations.

Here are some of the parts of his presentation that I found interesting.

Dr Paterson has been involved in research all of his career and has many professional publications to his credit.  He specialized in Molecular Oncology.

The Canadian Safety Code 6 is only concerned with the heating effects of radiation and nothing to do with the electrical effects on the human body.  The human body is chemical and electrical in nature and even very low levels of microwave radiation impacts the body.  Safety Code 6 allows 600 µW/cm² (microwatts per square cm) whereas it has been shown that the human body is sensitive to 0.1 µW/cm² ,  a factor of 6,000 times.

The experts that decided on the level of the Safety Code 6 were experts in the physics of electrical RF radiation and there were no experts who knew anything about the effect on the human body’s electrical functioning.  This resulted in this huge discrepancy.

Some people that suffer from EHS (Electro Hyper Sensitivity) feel RF radiation at levels that are 0.5% of the levels allowed by Safety Code 6.

Dr Paterson estimates that about 25,000 people in BC suffer from some level of EHS; mild to severe.  Also, other researchers estimate that 4% to 10% of all people in the world are EHS.  There are estimates that 50% of all people will be EHS soon.  One researcher says by 2017.

There are many studies (42 to date) that confirm the fact that the magnetic field created by high voltage (high tension) power lines does cause a significant increase in childhood leukemia.

Concerning the opt-out of Smart meters, Dr Paterson says that communities, and not individuals, should OPT-OUT.

Pulsed RF radiation has been shown to be 2.5 times more damaging to human health than clean sinusoidal 60 Hz power.

Computers that use the SMPS (switch mode power supply) create significant amounts of DE (dirty electricity) which is pulsed and may (does) cause health effects especially in EHS people.

Tobacco has been shown to have a 20 year lag time between smoking and the average time of the diagnosis of cancer.  RF Radiation is thought to be similar and if so then the numbers of cancers due to RF Radiation will soon increase dramatically.  This will crush the medial systems and the economy.

 

 

 

 

44 Reasons why CELL PHONES can cause CANCER

 

cell_phone_talking-300x150

Is there a connection between cell phones and cancer?  Here are 44 reasons to believe that cell phones can cause cancer.

Cell phones emit microwave radio-frequency radiation. Fact.

This radiation has the ability to penetrate our bodies. Fact.

Our governments do virtually nothing to protect us from these dangers. Fact.

And yet there is strong evidence and multiple peer reviewed studies that indicate that cell phones cause cancer and other diseases.

Take a look for yourself at these facts from The Telemedicine Reporter – a Library of Eclectic Medical Wisdom.  Published 2015 Feb 10.
http://www.epatienthealthcare.com/2015/02/10/44-reasons-cell-phones-can-cause-cancer/#.VOEhfC7Bso3

Look at this list of 44 reasons, lots of studies, quite technical.  And especially look at Reason  43. Cell Phone Radiation Cancer Time Bomb – the one with the graph that shows brain tumor cases could reach epidemic proportions within the next decade.

EHS problems in The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC)

The Section for Transport, Energy, Infrastructure and the Information Society (TEN) of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) has now produced it’s final draft opinion that we reported on recently. It would have represented a giant step forward in the recognition of EHS (electromagnetic hypersensitivity) and the need in society to dramatically alter our approach to supporting sufferers of the condition.

However on the 21st January 2015, a Counter-Opinion was proposed and voted on before the EHS Opinion and the Counter Opinion was passed by plenary vote. That means that the good TEN 559 EHS Opinion was dismissed.

The Adams Counter-Opinion was voted on first and was passed 136 votes to 110 votes with 19 Abstentions. .

Read the summary attached.  Note that Adams is very heavily connected to industry and is very much driven to prove that EHS is not a problem.  Ted’s Rule #1 = “Follow the money”.  He also promotes installation of Smart Meters and the Smart Grid.  This is just another example of the wireless industry bull-dozing their way through the democratic process.

How Dangerous and Expensive Became “Smart” An Exposé of the “Smart Grid”

Here is an excellent review of the current status of the EMF problems:  Smart Meters,  WiFi,   CellPhones, etc.

This is a must read.

Amy Worthington, a member of the Weston A. Price Foundation from Idaho, is an investigative journalist who has researched and written many articles on the topic of wireless radiation.

Biological Effects From RF Radiation and Implications for Smart Meters June 5 2013

Physicist, Ronald M. Powell (Ph.D., Harvard University, 1975) explains, in lay terms, the implications of the BioInitiative 2012 Report for Smart Meters and Smart Appliances.

He compares the low RF power density levels at which biological effects were reported in the RF Color Charts in the Report to the calculated RF power density levels that Smart Meters and Smart Appliances can produce.

WEMO is a system that allows users to control home electronics from anywhere.

WEMO is a series of products from Belkin International, Inc. that allows users to control home electronics from anywhere.  This appears to be a subset of home automation.

WEMO is just an example of the whole new world of devices, with IP addresses that can communicate on the internet and that includes the home WiFi.

Benefits?

To most people this sounds like a great advance with many benefits. Think of the time they could save by having control over home devices from your office, on the road,  out of town.

Imagine turning the coffee maker in the kitchen on when you wake up and are still in bed.  Wow.  And turning the lights on the driveway off at 10 pm,  automatically.  Or giving you an SMS message at sunset with the current temperature?   The geeks will really love this stuff.
See this site that proposes that you might use a motion detector to turn the fan or aircon on when the cat uses the cat toilet. No kidding. see this article from Australia

Down Side?

There is a growing segment of the population that believes that RFR (radio frequency radiation or microwave radiation) causes health problems. (RFR has not been proven to be Safe)  Some of these people are quite sensitive to RFR and must avoid areas with RFR from WiFi routers,  Cell towers,  cell phones and wireless smart meters otherwise they have health problems.

So, this addition of more devices talking to each other and a controller using WiFi RFR will simply increase the level of impact on the health of all people in the area.

The WiFi RFR has a limited range of 50-100 feet which you can check out with your smart phone connection to WiFi. This means people living in a condominium or an apartment with neighbours on 2 or 3 or 4 sides and upstairs and downstairs, each with several WiMo gadgets will be exposed to lots of RFR.

If you believe that living in an environment with high RFR is not good for your health and should be regarded as toxic,  THEN you must try to avoid these new WiFi gadgets like the WiMo.  Also, you should read all there is about the health effects and what you must do because the health you save may be your own or that of your family or friends.

The companies that are developing these toxic items have spent a lot of money on the R and D and they expect to make lots of money from the people who buy into this wireless home automation world.  So expect to see an increasing flood of these devices,  lots of advertising and lots of claims that RFR poses no health impacts.

Critical Problem with ‘Smart’ Meters: The Switching-Mode Power Supply (SMPS)

 

DE (dirty electricity) is the low frequency (1 Hz to 60 kHz) electrical noise in the wiring of a house that radiates throughout the house.

DE has been found to have health impacts on people exposed to it and there are devices that some purchase to decrease this damage.

Smart Meters and other modern devices create DE when they change the high voltage to lower voltage.  Great technology but it has a very sinister downside.

Here is an interesting article published in 2011 that details the problems of DE from Smart Meters.    It even suggests that California, as well as all other jurisdictions will suffer huge financial troubles in the near future with falling real-estate prices and huge law suits.
