Members Urge OPALCO Board to mandate ROCKISLAND to create a USER SAFE EMF radiation education campaign
Many years have passed since the first contentious discussions about the idea of a 4G WiFi canopy over the entire San Juan Archipelago, when several hundred Lopez residents, 10% of the population, signed a petition stating that they were opposed to OPALCO’S wireless broadband plan because of concerns about electromagnetic radiation and public health safety.
Presently there are over 28 LTE cell towers emitting harmful EMF rays 24/7 over most of the Islands. But just as OPALCO has proceeded moving forward with its hybrid/broadband agenda, so has the scientific community moved forward, continuing to find a high level of certainty that mechanisms of cumulative and eventually irreversible pathophysiological harm are caused by low level, long and short term, NON-THERMAL microwave frequency EMF exposures.
SWITZERLAND, ITALY, FRANCE, AUSTRIA, LUXUMBOURG, BULGARIA, POLAND, HUNGARY, ISRAEL, RUSSIA and CHINA have re-set electromagnetic radiation exposure limits 100 to 10,000 times less than the United States.
France, Italy, Brussels,India, Belgium,Spain, and Canada have all passed resolutions and legislation warning of the dangers of wireless technology and mandating education campaign's to their populations.
These countries all recognize that there can be non-thermal biological effects from wireless radiation.
In 2017 the CALIFORNIA department public health released guidelines advising cell phone users to keep phones away from their bodies, use speaker phone as much as possible and to limit cell phone use. These guidelines, advise Californians that scientific studies have linked electromagnetic radiation from long-term cell phone use and other wireless devices to an increased risk of brain cancer and other health problems.
This year the United States National Toxicology Program (NTP) will embark on a new phase of its long-running RF project., finding the mechanisms of how EMF causes DNA Breaks, oxidative stress and and gene expression.. Oxidative stress is shorthand for the sequence of events that follows an increase in the number of free radicals �"biologically active molecules that can damage DNA. Alternatively, RF radiation may hinder the cell’s ability to repair DNA breaks, which occur naturally and not infrequently.
Last year, the NTP concluded that RF radiation causes cancer; now it will begin a systematic search for mechanisms to explain how and why.
In the meantime, we ask you the OPALCO BOARD to mandate that ROCKISLAND TECHNOLOGIES create a campaign to educate COOP members about the health risks of using wireless technology, educate COOP members on ways they can protect themselves and their families, and how to to use wireless devices in a safer manor to greatly reduce and limit exposures.
“Saying that RF radiation from wireless communication cannot do any harm because it is non ionising �"meaning the individual photon energy is not large enough �"- is the same as saying that a tsunami cannot cause any harm because the individual water molecules don’t have enough energy.”
Leendert Vriens, PhD - Physicist, who worked for 30 years at Philips Natlab, the world renowned physics research laboratory.
To stick our heads in the sand and deny there is a problem here would be a moral travesty and an abuse to all members of the OPALCO Coop.
Together we can be part of the movement toward safer technology, and lead other communities in this direction by educating and protecting members of OPALCO from the harmful biological effects of electromagnetic radiation.
