Learn about danger from wireless devices

Recently, the unprecedented rise in autism has been a hot topic in the news. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it has risen 30 percent in the last two years, doubling every five years. Why?

Unfortunately, children are the most vulnerable victims of electro-environmental pollution. Electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) emitted by wireless devices can cause breaks in the blood-brain barrier of children because of their thinner, more permeable skulls. Worse, fetuses can be exposed to these frequencies in utero via cellphone, Wi-Fi, iPads, computers and wireless utility meters.

The American Academy of Pediatrics, which represents 60,000 pediatricians and pediatric surgeons, has written three letters in the last two years calling for the adoption of the “precautionary principle” by protecting children and pregnant women from radiation emitted by these devices. It also demands the Federal Communications Commission revise its “inadequate and outdated exposure guidelines and testing protocols” (safeinschools.org).

In addition, more than 6,000 independent medical/scientific studies support the concerns of the AAP. One study by Dr. Dietrich Klinghart of Seattle compared the sleeping quarters of mothers of autistic children during pregnancy to those of mothers of children with no neurological impairments. The findings showed the body voltage of the mothers of the autistic group to be 20.7 times higher in microwave density. The common variable was the attachment of a wireless utility meter (Smart Meter/AMI) to the outside wall of their bedrooms.

According to B. Blake Levitt, a renowned science journalist, “There is no safe time for either strong intense bursts or low-level continuous doses of EMFs during the months of pregnancy.” She prophetically warns, “As consumers living in a time of emerging scientific consensus and an accompanying regulatory vacuum, it is up to us to assume responsibility for reducing EMF exposures. We can only hope that government regulatory agencies will soon assume their proper responsibility for protecting our future generations. But for now, it is up to us.”
