Sedona AZ (September 11, 2012) – The following is an open letter to the Sedona Arizona City Council by a Sedona resident:
Hi, Mayor and City Council members,
I applaud Kristin Monday (below) and others for trying to alert the council and fellow citizens about the impending public health disaster known as microwave technology (including WiFi, cell phones, smart meters, cordless phones, microwave ovens, wireless devices, GPS, military radar and more, all similar frequencies). I am one who also feels a sensitivity to Wifi and cell phone radiation when I am forced to be around them in order to be in public spaces such as the library, meetings, etc. It flares up my restless legs syndrome to an agonizing level, relieved only by movement and walking, making it hard to participate.
Observing this connection has led me to make an extensive study of the science behind this technology and acquire my own EMF test equipment. In this process, I have learned that there are many independent public health researchers who are quite concerned about this un-vetted proliferation of microwaves in our environments, much of it involuntary. Many excellent expert audio interviews are found on www.electromagnetichealth.org.
Kristin is correct that many people have some degree of sensitivity to these forms of microwaves. Experts have estimated 20-30% of the population feels it to some degree, whether or not they realize it, and about 2-3% severely so. All in all, it is a massive experiment on humanity and the environment, with some serious red flags for the future.
Consider, for example, that–
- rodents exposed to these frequencies (same as cell phones) cannot reproduce after 7 generations (DNA damage)
- two hours of exposure to cell phones breaks their blood brain barrier, allowing toxins into the brain for prolonged periods
- large epidemiological studies have shown brain cancer increases up to 121x among those living closest to cell towers vs. furthest away (Austria).
In fact, there have been over 8,000 studies on microwave technologies and it was known as early as 1970 that they are dangerous. The military termed it “Radiowave” or “Microwave Sickness.” Recently, Russian scientists, who are the global experts on this subject, have released a report to the world warning that no pregnant woman or child under 18 should use a cell phone except for emergenices and that WiFi should be removed from classrooms. See this pdf.
I realize that you are busy with many issues you may deem more important, and there are limits to what a city council can do on this subject, particularly due to the 1996 Federal TeleCommunications Act, limiting local jurisdiction over this issue. However, we owe it to future generations who will pay the price for our oversights for centuries if we do not rein in this dangerous technological experiment. We all feel a frustration about how to act to protect ourselves and others. The vested interests of the largest industry on the plant (over $3 trillion a year) and the military are not easy to oppose. Right now, education seems to be the most important thing, as well as not granting leases to telecom companies wanting to place cell towers on schools, libraries, fire stations, etc.
We also strongly urge Sedona to join the 40-50 or more other local governments in California and elsewhere who have passed resolutions opposing the installation of utility Smart Meters, which will worsen our microwave exposures many fold. Our health and our environment are precious and irreplaceble.
Thank you for your time and caring,Susan Pitcairn 1865 Gun Fury Road Sedona, Arizona 86336
