This year, Oregon House Representative Alissa Keny-Guyer will be introducing a bill, LC 2777, that will require the Department of Education to review independently funded, scientific studies to make a determination whether radiation emitted from WiFi routers, laptops, and tablets used by schools is biologically harmful or not. This bill is both welcome and long overdue.

WiFi Harm Has Been Known for Decades

Consider this statement by former MI5 military intelligence microwave-weapons expert, Barrie Trower: "Wi-Fi radiation is a weapons frequency. It can only do harm .... During the 1950s and 1960s, it was realized that microwaves could be used as stealth weapons …. The Russians beamed the American embassy during the Cold War and it gave everybody working in the embassy (one or more of the following) cancer, breast cancer, leukemia, and it was realized then that low level microwaves were the perfect stealth weapon to be used on dissident groups around the world, because you could make dissident groups sick, give them cancer, change their mental outlook on life without them even knowing they were being radiated ….”

And Mr. Trower continues, “as stated by University Researchers, Government Scientists and International Scientific Advisors; a minimum of 57.7% of school girls exposed to low-level microwave radiation (Wi-fi) are at risk of suffering stillbirth, fetal abnormalities or genetically damaged children, when they give birth. Any genetic damage may pass to successive generations ....”

WiFi utilizes “the most lethal frequency to animal tissue,“ according to Dr. Magda Havas, Associate Professor of Environmental & Resource Studies at Trent University, Peterborough, Canada, where she teaches and does research on the biological effects of environmental contaminants.

In May 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared microwave radiation from all wireless devices, including WiFi, a Class 2B Possible Carcinogen. Many scientists were in disagreement and felt it should have been classified as a Class 1 Human Carcinogen.

WHO Dr. Anthony Miller said, “Research indicates a far too long list of possible effects from radio frequency exposures in addition to brain cancer. Accumulated research indicates oxidative stress, neurological, immune and reproductive damage occurs after exposure to RF radiation.”

Regulatory Agencies Protect Industry Not the Consumer

Readers should find it incredible that no microwave-emitting devices were ever pre-market safety tested or declared safe by any regulatory agency or corporation that manufactures them. In fact, the product information included with every laptop, cell phone, or tablet contains its own safety warnings. The Apple iPad manual states; “To be sure that human exposure to RF energy does not exceed the FCC guidelines orient the device in portrait mode with the Home button at the bottom of the display or in landscape mode with the cellular antenna away from your body or other objects.” There are five antennas in every tablet on every child's lap spewing DNA-splitting microwave radiation into their reproductive organs. This has been confirmed by no fewer than a dozen studies.

Safety guidelines for exposure are within the purview of the FCC; however, the Agency makes no claim to be a research or a safety agency. Yet, the FCC does set exposure levels arbitrarily based upon the heating of tissue. The Agency would not include studies beneath the “thermal” level showing harm. How can the FCC determine safety limits when their website states the following?

While there is no federally developed national standard for safe levels of exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy, many federal agencies have addressed this important issue ... the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).”

The FCC refers to the FDA and other agencies; however, on the FDA’s website this statement adds to the confusion: “Under the law, FDA does not review the safety of radiation-emitting consumer products such as cell phones and similar wireless devices before they can be sold, as it does with new drugs or medical devices.” If the FDA does not review the safety, then how can the FCC rely upon the FDA for “safety” information?

More confusion ensues when the FDA website states there is “no evidence cell phones cause cancer.” If the FDA “does not review the safety of radiation-emitting” devices, then how can it claim such devices are safe? The FDA ignores completely The WHO Class 2B designation, the results of the recent National Toxicology Study discussed below, and the multitude of studies showing harm at levels thousands of times below what the FCC considers safe.

The FCC also refers to the EPA; however, EPA Scientist Norbert Hankin, Ph.D. of the Center for Science and Risk Assessment, Radiation Protection Division, had this to say about the FCC “safety” standards: “This ... should not be overlooked … the potential for an impact by wireless communications technology on a child’s educational process, i.e., by possibly affecting learning ability. [It] stems from recent studies involving short-term exposures that demonstrated subtle effects on brain functions, produced by low-intensity, pulse-modulated radiofrequency radiation . . . even a slight degree of impairment of learning ability over years of exposure . . . may negatively affect the quality of life that could be achieved by these individuals when adults….The FCC’s exposure standards are seriously flawed. FCC rules do not address the issues of long-term, chronic exposure.”

There were at least 8300 studies by all branches of the military prior to 1980 that were not considered by the FCC in their evaluation of science. The government and industry knew of the harm before wireless technology was released to the public. The conspiracy of silence may cause more deaths than tobacco and asbestos combined. In May of 2016, five years after the WHO Class-2B carcinogen announcement, a study funded by the National Institute of Health, National Toxicology Program found exposure to microwave radiation from cell phones caused an increase in brain and heart cancer in rats. With only partial results reported, Dr. Otis Brawley, Chief Medical Officer of the American Cancer Society, said, “This is good science ... this causes a paradigm shift in our understanding of radiation and cancer.”

What becomes evident is that the agencies that are supposed to be protecting the public are doing the opposite by allowing industry insiders to write legislation and create policy solely to increase profits and protect them from health-related lawsuits. Incredibly, the 1996 Telecommunications Act, signed into law by Bill Clinton, was written by members of the telecommunications industry; this is one of the most egregious examples of corporate control over our regulatory agencies.

All Frequencies Are Harming Us

Many published studies confirm carcinogenicity, genotoxicity, neurotoxicity, and more of WiFi radiation, but each study focuses on the biological exposure of only a single frequency and/or a single device.

No published scientific study has explored the aggregate biological effects of the complex, multi-frequency radiation that now pollutes inhabited buildings and the environment everywhere across the Globe.

It is not just happening at one frequency and it is not just being observed by researchers in one laboratory. The same chromosome and DNA damages are being reported at frequencies across the entire range, including 100 MHz [FM radio], 300 MHz, 837 MHz, 954 MHz (cell phones), 1,250 MHz, 2,450 MHz (2.45 gigahertz: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, smart phones), and up to 9000 MHz (9 gigahertz: vehicle-to-vehicle radar systems)." All living organisms perceive WiFi radiation as a potent environmental stressor, for which evolution has provided no adequate defense.

Every cell in our bodies has an electrical component necessary for proper functioning. When bombarded by microwave frequencies billions of times higher than our natural frequencies our cells calcium metabolism is altered. This happens whether we feel it or not. A new pandemic, affecting 3-5% of the population, has emerged in recent years from our 24/7 WiFi radiation exposure. Electro Hypersensitivity (EHS) often presents itself with acute symptoms such as headaches, skin rashes, sharp pains in the head or neck, bleeding from the nose or ears, brain fog, memory loss, breathing problems, blurry vision, and more. Generally, the early symptoms are medicated until the condition progresses and becomes debilitating.

EHS is sometimes referred to as WiFi allergy. Those affected may become so sick they are forced to move from their homes and even cities, seeking refuge in less WiFi-radiation polluted environments. Every system in the body is eventually affected, including eyesight, hearing, and cognitive function. Since each person's body is genetically different, and each person's exposure is unique, every WiFi-radiation victim will develop uniquely individual symptoms. It places sufferers on the other side from both industry and the governments that profit from leasing wavelengths. Many scientists believe we are approaching a tipping point. The American Academy of Environmental Medicine predicts so many casualties that “our health care system is not yet prepared to address.

Scientists Appeal for Help

On May 11, 2015, 190 scientists from 39 nations submitted an appeal to the United Nations, UN member states, and the WHO requesting they adopt more protective exposure guidelines for electromagnetic fields (EMF's) and wireless technology in the face of increasing evidence of harm.

The International EMF Scientist Appeal asks the Secretary General and UN affiliated bodies to encourage measures, to limit EMF exposures, and to educate the public about health risks, particularly to children and pregnant women. The Appeal highlights WHO’s conflicting positions about EMF risk. WHO continues to ignore its own agency’s recommendations and favors guidelines recommended by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). These guidelines, developed by a self-selected group of industry insiders, have long been criticized as non-protective. The Interphone study, released in 2010, showed a 40% increased risk for brain tumors (gliomas) in the highest category of heavy users (at that time only 30 minutes per day over a 10-year period). Yet, the WHO says, “A large number of studies have been performed over the last two decades to assess whether mobile phones pose a potential health risk. To date, no adverse health effects have been established as being caused by mobile phone use.”

The Public Is Kept in Ignorance

America's Federal, State and local governments profit so hugely from the WiFi-cancerization of the United States that none see fit to enforce proper environmental radiation measurements and compliance. Crucial cell-tower emissions information is kept inaccessible to the public.

Sadly, school boards, politicians, city council members and PTA groups remain deaf, dumb, glassy eyed, hostile, and indifferent when approached by the growing community of informed parents, scientists, politicians, and advocates who are fighting for radiation-free schools.

A false paradigm of educational necessity has been bought and paid for while the fossilized inhabitants of school boards, city councils, and departments of education have lost track of their moral and legal duty to provide a safe environment and a good education for our children. The feeding frenzy by greedy telecom marketers seems unstoppable even in light of the many studies showing physical and mental decline as schools fill up with Wi-radiation.

While Our Children Are Badly Harmed

In 1995, Dr. Henry Lai from the University of Washington was the first scientist to discover single- and double-strand DNA breaks from microwave exposure. Lai also conducted research into memory loss. In a series of papers, Dr. Lai consistently showed memory changes from microwave exposure. These observations raised questions about whether bathing children in microwaves during their school years could have life-long detrimental consequences. Prior to 1978 there were at least 8300 scientific studies by all branches of the military and NASA confirming hundreds of severe biological effects from microwave exposure.

Dr. George Carlo, writing in the Fall 2008 issue of American Trial Lawyer Magazine, in his excellent article "Illusion and Escape," spelled out both the WiFi lie and the danger to children, when he wrote, "[p]art of the corporate (Telecom) strategy encourages manipulation of the consumer market, such as the effort to convince parents and teachers that WiFi wireless access at school will improve education – with no evidence to support the claim. Ironically, the pathology associated with ICRW (Information Carrying Radio Waves or WiFi) is consistent with learning deficiencies linked to WiFi itself.

Screens are “more addictive than heroin,” says Nicholas Kardaras, Ph.D. and author of Glow Kids – How Screen Addiction is Hijacking Our Kids – How to Break the Trance. How widespread is America's youthful WiFi addiction? Dr. Kardaras reports that 64-million American kids between the ages of 2 and 17 play video games, which are shown by scientists to "affect the development of microstructural properties of the brain associated with negative psychological outcomes." Dr. Kardaras says, "Once a kid has crossed the line into true tech addiction, treatment can be very difficult. Indeed, I have found it easier to treat heroin and crystal meth addicts than lost-in-the-matrix video gamers or Facebook-dependent social media addicts."

Former U.S. Government scientist, Ronald M. Powell, Ph.D. concurs. In “A Message to Public Schools and Public Libraries About Wireless Devices,” Dr. Powell says, A worldwide health crisis is emerging and is becoming a hallmark of the 21st Century. The international biomedical research community is trying to warn us; but, as a society, we are not yet listening. I hope that this message will help to change that.

Dr. Powell should know. He is a retired U.S. Government scientist with a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Harvard University. Dr. Powell worked for the Executive Office of the President, the National Science Foundation, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology and does not hesitate to say, “As a scientist, I urge you to look into the health impact of the radiofrequency/ microwave radiation produced by wireless devices. Examples of wireless devices in our environment are Wi-Fi in all of its forms; cell phones and cell towers [especially those located on school grounds]; cordless phones; wireless computers, whether desktop, laptop, or tablet models...”

Action Taken at the State Level

Attempts have been made to intervene with the state-sponsored irradiation of our children. Parents and advocacy groups, having given up on our corrupt regulatory agencies, are turning to the courts or to their legislators in desperation: Hawaii State Senator, Josh Green; Oregon State Senator, Chip Shields; and the city of Berkeley, California. Currently, Senator Karen Spilka of Massachusetts is introducing SD.1462 requiring a review of science related to WiFi-radiation. Oregon House Representative, Alissa Keny-Guyer is introducing LC 2777.

The Oregon Wi-Fi Bill, LC 2777, If passed, will require the Department of Education to: “assemble a panel of scientists, educators, medical professionals, public health researchers, parents and students to review independently funded scientific studies on the biological effects of microwave radiation. Upon completion, the committee will report the findings to the Dept. of Education, the Dept. of Health, Parent Teacher Groups and other health related agencies and organizations.”

Further, the Bill states that “[t]he Dept. of Education, shall be required to develop an outreach plan to inform students, teachers, parents and school staff about the results of that review and any potential health effects associated with radiation emissions from wireless technology and wireless communication devices used in schools in Oregon. … The Dept. of Education shall be required to develop research based practices to eliminate exposure to radio frequency radiation emissions in schools in the State of Oregon.”

Oregon State House Representative Alissa Keny-Guyer needs active and enthusiastic feedback in support of this Bill. She can be reached by phone at 1-503-986-1446 or by email at The full text of House Bill LC 2777 can be found at this website:

Perhaps Amy Worthington said it best. “A nation unable to say ‘no thanks’ to its own destruction surely has a hard road down. Human history indicates that all deadly mass manias eventually reach their limit, but usually only after millions of people have suffered and died tragically. The question remains: how far will America's Wi-holocaust progress before survivors finally comprehend the appalling price of unsafe WiFi-radiation technologies?”

David Morrison has been a rare book dealer for 30 years. He became an advocate against wireless in schools when a cell tower was installed in the middle of his daughter’s campus. Motivated by this cell tower to run for school board on the wireless issue, David received 17% of the votes. He concludes that wireless is perhaps the biggest crime against humanity ever.
