Disconnect for Saturday 23rd April 2016
Worldwide EMR Action Day aligns with Earth Day to protect the biological integrity of the natural world and all its inhabitants against unnatural Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR). With this endeavour, people from around the planet join together to reduce harm from EMR and create a healthier life for all.
Norm R, who lives in Victoria BC, has suffered brain cancer from workplace exposure to RFR (radio frequency radiation = microwave radiation) from a roof top antenna.
Norm has has applied to WorkSafeBC for for disability benefits due to him as an injured worker but his application has not been accepted.
It seems that main issue is that WorkSafeBC considers that the RFR from the roof top Cell Tower antenna was radiating at levels below what Health Canada and Industry Canada consider to be harmful. Norm has researched the physics of RFR in the zones quite close to the antenna and has found that there may be areas with levels of RFR much much higher than limits established by Health Canada’s Safety Code 6 (SC6).
So, because WorkSafeBC relies on an incomplete understanding of the effects of radiation from cell tower antenna, Norm has been denied benefits normally due to injured workers.
Norm is now trying to bring this injustice to the attention of the members of the BC legislature in Victoria by staging a hunger strike.
