Here is my response to the pending legislation by telecom companies to discontinue landlines. This is being proposed despite the fact that wireless radiation has been classified as a class 2B possible carcinogen by the World Health Organization and a probable carcinogen by the EPA.
I would not be able to function without a landline. Because of the previous cumulative effects of radiation (cell phones and other EMR) on my body from using a cell phone and living 150’ from a disguised cell tower, I can no longer tolerate any sort of prolonged wireless radiation, Wifi or smart meter radiation. I have been forced to live in the outback where there is no cell tower.
I am a PR professional who used a cell phone exclusively for 8 years until it made me dizzy and nauseous whenever I held it to my head. My ear on the side of my head with which I used this cell phone is now permanently numb. I count myself as lucky to have given up this cell phone before I developed a brain tumor. Please note that more and more people are now winning legal battles due to the brain tumor damage they have received from cell phone wireless radiation.
Wireless cell radiation (EMR/RF) is now categorized by the insurance industry as a high risk: A major Swiss insurance industry report featuring emerging risk topics acknowledges recent reports of courts ruling in favor of claimants who have experienced health damage from mobile phones.
People like me are the canaries in the mine shaft. Wireless microwave radiation poisoning has been undeniably shown in 4,000+ peer-reviewed academic studies to damage DNA, destroy the blood/brain barrier, and interfere with the production of melatonin by the pineal gland, along with a host of other effects. Living beings can only handle the effects of radiation so long before their immune system gives out. (See: www.EMRActionDay.org/science for a partial selection of scientific studies.)
Because corporate-owned PR firms and media are blocking the flow of this information, I have spent a great deal of time sharing with others the numerous academic studies that prove wireless radiation is toxic. Because of my advocacy work, I have been harassed and threatened by telecom industry shills. However, my ethics and Ivy League education demand that I continue to insist that the truth about cumulative wireless radiation be acknowledged. If we give in any further to this monopoly of money, we will be directly harming the public for all time. You know the tobacco and asbestos stories.
Granted, the companies that make wireless technology are now among the most powerful in the world, making trillions of dollars every year and paying little to no Federal income tax. They use vast PR networks, media/political control, and advertising to hide the proven effects of wireless radiation poisoning from us.
The kicker is that telephone landlines use less than one third as much energy to operate as cell phones do. With 6 billion cell phones, imagine the energy we could save on this planet if we decide to use safe fiber optic hard wiring instead of radiation to communicate with one another.
I am convinced that the unending stream of wireless microwave radiation emitting from millions of cell towers across the planet is contributing significantly to global warming. Now industrial-level WiFi is being installed in the ceilings of classrooms and businesses across America in order to sell massive quantities of wireless technology. However, hard wiring computer technology with fiber optics would be better quality, cheaper to operate, and without the effects of microwave poisoning day in and day out on us and our children.
Alternatives to dangerous wireless technology are disappearing fast. These days it is almost impossible to buy landline phones, cable TV boxes, computer mice and routers, utility meters, etc. etc, that don’t emit wireless radiation. Although there is a large lobby for the needs of the disabled here in America, phone booths are rarely available to the many people like me who have been injured by wireless radiation and cannot use cell phones.
After arriving home recently from vacation, I found out that my mother was on her deathbed. I had tried to check up on her health condition while on vacation, but every phone booth between Southern California and Utah was disconnected or broken. Although I immediately took the red eye to New York to see her, she passed on before I got there. In order to fly to New York, I had to endure a radiation-emitting full body scanner and WiFi emitting from the confines of every airplane. After getting back from my Mom’s funeral, I developed a painful burning condition in my spine for months--another symptom of wireless poisoning.
The phone booths are now all gone. It is inconceivable that the increasing number of people who are being injured by cumulative wireless poisoning could function without landlines. Do not take away the landlines so trillion dollar companies can make a few more bucks. And although cell phones are touted as great for emergencies, landlines are the only device that will still work when the power goes out.
Temporary EMF Refuge in Rural Massachusetts--sensitive to those with MCS May-June-(July)
and Planning Stages for Permanent Location(s)
Required: 2 semi-permanent room mates (May-June-July) with possibility of extension if refuge development successful.
Possibility: Short-term vacation/detox rental in additional room
Goal: To acquire support, investors, and members to form an intentional community and EMF refuge.
Mostly off-grid house:
2 room mates sought for 3-month rental at beautiful furnished rural 100-year-old renovated home(2800sf, on nine acres, with barn, stable, 2 car garage- up on a quiet, peaceful hilltop- beautiful views- towards farmland and mountains- can garden- with nearby bike trails, organic farms, fields & forest - even golf and swimming. Home will be shared with 1 child and 2 women. Must be willing to make quick application and initial payment for rental to move forward. Minimum rental fee based on current location: $725/month, $625 security deposit. Basic grocery bill divided by roommates.
Room mates should expect to model good, positive behavior especially with respect to child living in home, and be willing to cooperate for smooth running of the household. We intend to research and expand this community to offer detox services with other refuge communities. Congenial group a must. Background & references required (more information to be posted in a day or so). Further information will be posted & updated on this website: http://www.meetup.com...
MCS: Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (common in people with EHS)
EHS: Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity

EMF refuge in Virginia
I am planning a small EMF refuge in Virginia to be established this fall. There will be some wooded areas and some open areas for growing/raising food. There will be one house on the grid with plans for other small structures off the grid. I would imagine some people will stay for longer and others for shorter periods. We will all need to work together with our labor or finances. If we do well together we may be able to offer help to some who may not be able to pay or work. If you would like to participate please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you!

The Swiss flats where smoking, painting and mobile phones are banned
A block of flats has been built in Zurich for people who claim to suffer from hypersensitivity to chemicals and electromagnetic radiation
No smoking, no perfume and no mobile phone use – the list of rules at one newly built block of flats in Zurich is so long it is a wonder anyone chooses to live there.
But for those who do, there is good reason.
The 15 apartments have been designed specially for people who claim to have a condition known as “multiple chemical sensitivity”.

Sufferers fall ill when exposed to the slightest waft of perfume or whiff of cleaning products.
Most of the residents in the building in Switzerland's Leimbach say they also become weak and sick when near mobile phones or other wireless devices that emit radio waves or electromagnetic radiation.
While few doctors recognise the affliction, The Healthy Life and Living Foundation, which campaigns for greater recognition for MCS sufferers, convinced the Zurich authorities to provide land for the £4.1 million building.
Christian Schifferle, 59, the head of the foundation, said he had suffered from MCS since being exposed to toxic fumes in his parents’ furniture factory as a young child. He has spent most of his adult life camped in a trailer in the pure air of the Swiss Alps. “All my life it has been like I was only half alive,” he said.
Mr Schifferle said he only realised he was not alone at the age of 35, when he discovered an American book on MCS. “It makes me weak, anxious, I can’t breathe, my lungs hurt, and I get dizzy.”
Swiss officials say the building, which opened in December, is the first of its kind in Europe. They estimate that about 5,000 people suffer from MCS in Switzerland. Many become isolated and say they cannot function in the modern workplace.
Lydia Trueb, a Zurich housing office spokeswoman, said: “We wanted to help these people to have a calm home where they hopefully will be less sick.”
People entering the building are asked to switch off their mobile phones, although they do not work anyway, as the apartments have a built-in shield against electromagnetic radiation which blocks mobile reception. There is no wife, but there are landlines and Internet connections. The few cleaning and personal hygiene products allowed are on display in the lobby.
The block has odourless plaster on the walls, and construction workers were banned from smoking or using aftershave. Even so, Mr Schifferle spends only a few days a week in his flat, as he says he can still smell traces left by the builders.
