Lloyd's of London Excludes Coverage for RF/EMR Claims

"Lloyd's of London is one of the largest insurers in the world and often leads the way in protection, taking on risks that no one else will. Attached is a recent renewal policy which, as of Feb. 7, 2015, excludes any coverage associated with exposure to non-ionizing radiation. [View original article.]  In response to clarification, this response was received on Feb. 18, 2015 from CFC Underwriting LTD, London, UK agent for Lloyd's:

"'The Electromagnetic Fields Exclusion (Exclusion 32) is a General Insurance Exclusion and is applied across the market as standard. The purpose of the exclusion is to exclude cover for illnesses caused by continuous long-term non-ionising radiation exposure i.e. through mobile phone usage."

Letter to Government from Sharon Noble - Director of Coalition to Stop Smart Meters in BC

Premier Clark, Mr. Bennett and Mr. Reimer,

RE: Lloyd's of London excludes coverage for claims caused by exposure to non-ionizing radiation.

"Based on inaccurate information provided by ITRON, Health Canada and Dr. Perry Kendall, you have been telling people that there is no health risk due to prolonged exposure to radiation from smart meters on homes and wifi in school -- this despite your having received 100s of studies by independent researchers and many letters from scientists and doctors to the contrary.

France: Michèle Rivasi: "We Need to Create a Safe Zone for Electrosensitive Persons

"We need to create a safe zone for electro (sensitives)" - 
by DAPHNÉ MONGIBEAUX, Paris Match, 
12 February 2015
(Translation)

Michèle Rivasi, MEP Europe Ecologie Les Verts, wants to create a refuge area for electro-hypersensitive, both to protect them from electromagnetic pollution and better understand its effects. A first in Europe.

Paris Match. Why do you create a white area in France? 

Michèle Rivasi. To help, but also to better understand the electro-hypersensitive people who suffer in silence and sometimes live on the margins of society. In 2008, I was contacted by the association A land for EHS was looking for a place devoid of electromagnetic pollution in my area, the Drôme. The former mayor of Saint-Julien-en-Beauchene, who helped two women EHS living in a cave, immediately proposed a holiday center in her town where cell phones do not pass. Since we want to make this remote area a rest area where EHS could relax for six months, but also a place for research on electromagnetic hypersensitivity.

What will the research?

We would combine a scientific team ANSES this project could study the various symptoms suffered by these people. The absence of electromagnetic pollution would better understand the effects of dissociated and associated telephone network to the Internet or Bluetooth for example. These people would answer a detailed questionnaire on their arrival. It would be a first in Europe.

How is France compared to its European neighbors on this issue?

In France, it is very Cartesian, one needs to understand everything before acting. The Swedes ask fewer questions if a person present deficiencies, is overdue, it is recognized as a disability and receives aid. In Sweden, where the laptop appeared very early, the EHS are not so marginalized, they can be accommodated in nursing centers. Also in Germany, the electro-hypersensitivity is recognized as an occupational disease. In Austria, a haven for EHS and people with multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) was opened in Zurich with the support of the city in late 2013. Our project is the most ambitious and should interest many Europeans. No DM

Merck’s Former Doctor Predicts Gardasil To Become The Greatest Medical Scandal Of All Time

physician with Gardasil manufacturer Merck, has started
to raise his voice against the HPV vaccine.
Merck’s Former Doctor Predicts Gardasil To Become The Greatest Medical Scandal Of All Time
by Arjun Walia, collective-evolution.com,
25 January 2015

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine” –(source) Marica Angell. She is a physician and author, along with being the first woman to serve as editor-in-chief of The New England Journal of Medicine – regarded as one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world.

Since the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Merck & Co.’s Gardasil vaccine in 2006, it has been surrounded by tremendous amounts of information, controversy and misinformation. This controversy has garnered much attention as people become more aware of the importance of paying attention to what goes into their bodies. It’s imperative that one examines a large body of evidence before believing what is seen on TV or stated on a radio advertisement, and people are slowly starting to wake up to this fact.

“It is a vaccine that’s been highly marketed, the benefits are over-hyped, and the dangers are underestimated.” – (Taken from the ONE MORE GIRL DOCUMENTARY) – Dr. Chris Shaw, Professor at the University of British Columbia, in the department of Neuroscience, Ophthalmology, and Visual Sciences.

Expert prescribes remedy for dealing with ill-effects of gadget

Guntur: Excessive use of cell phones can trigger a host of health problems among users. According to a study, indiscriminate use of cell phone by indulging in non-stop talk for 20 minutes every day will cause hearing loss over a period of time. Other health hazards over long-term use of cell phone are feverishness, sleeplessness, sleep disruption, migraine, palpitations of the heart, dizziness, irreversible infertility, DNA damage, immune system degradation and arising of cardiovascular problems due to exposure to electro-magnetic radiation.

A Genetic Blueprint to Carry Through Life and Help Develop Personalized Treatments

Doctors expect soon to begin sequencing the genomes of healthy newborn babies as part of a government-funded research program that could have wide implications for genetic science.

The research, to be conducted at major hospitals around the country, stems from a growing recognition that genome sequencing could someday be part of routine testing done on every baby. Such testing could provide doctors and parents a vast pool of data likely to reveal a wider range of potential medical risks than the traditional heel-prick test, in which a small sample of newborns’ blood is taken to check for more than two dozen possible conditions.

Genome sequencing of infants also someday could provide people with a genetic blueprint to carry through life. The data could be used years later to help develop personalized medical treatment, such as choosing the most effective asthma medication.

“We are entering an era where all of medicine is genomic medicine,’’ says Robert C. Green, a geneticist and researcher at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, which is participating in the research program. “In the next five to 10 years, as costs come down and interpretation is more established, it will increasingly be to everyone’s advantage to have sequencing information integrated into their care,” he says.

Wi-Fi Banned from Nurseries in France

Wifi banned from nurseries in France
Powerwatch, 5 February 2015

In an unprecedented move, France have passed a law regarding children's exposure to wireless devices by entirely banning WiFi in nursery / daycare settings, and restricted in primary schools to only be enabled when actively being used for education.

Not only does this demonstrate an awareness and proactive approach to mitigate potential harm from radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, it also demonstrates the first national implementation of the precautionary principle with regards to managing the prevalance of wireless technology.

Dariusz recently covered this issue and Finland's official reaction appears to be one of ambivalence: "we've already told people to limit their exposure in 2009, so we've done our bit" despite the use of wireless gadgets becoming obligatory in primary and nursery schools in the country. It's clear that without a legislative approach, people will not voluntarily choose to limit their exposure even if you explain that there might be reasons for them to do so.

France: New Law on Electromagnetic Fields and Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Sets Precedent

New French Law Sets Precedent
Cellular Phone Task Force, 29 January 2015

Today [29 January 2015] the French Parliament passed a law addressing electromagnetic fields and electromagnetic hypersensitivity. While the new law does not go nearly far enough, it is the first of its kind in the world. Among its provisions are the following:

1. Anyone who intends to build one or more radio installations regulated by the ANFR (France's equivalent of the FCC) must submit to the local government, if requested by the mayor, calculations of electromagnetic fields that will be generated. This information must be made available
to the public.

2. A national dialogue committee on levels of public exposure to electromagnetic fields is created within the ANFR. This committee will give information to all stakeholders. The ANFR will give annual reports to the dialogue committee on the results of all electromagnetic field measurements in France as well as measures taken to reduce exposure levels at "atypical" locations where the levels are greater than usual. The ANFR will compile a annual census of atypical exposure locations and
periodically report on measures taken to reduce exposure at such locations.

Radiation Therapy: The Shocking Truth the Cancer Industry Doesn't Want You to Know

Radiation Therapy: The Shocking Truth the Cancer Industry Doesn’t Want You to Know
by Mark David, endalldisease.com,

After radiation therapy proved itself to be not only a failure but also fatal to initial test subjects, the medical industry simply changed the dose, manipulated statistics and re-branded the treatment as a breakthrough for curing cancer.

It’s no surprise that cancer treatment with radiation damages the body and causes more cancer. In fact, it is even admitted on the National Cancer Institute website that radiation therapy causes cancer. Even if you survive the high doses of radiation, your health will be damaged to the point where the remainder of your life is lived in agonizing pain, with numerous potentially-fatal complications and diseases arising later in life as a result of the radiation.

So why are people still submitting to radiation for their cancer?

The answer is simple. An ignorant and uninformed population will do anything their doctors tell them to, even in the face of abundant evidence indicating great peril associated with it. For those who are okay with living in ignorance and trusting their doctors, you reap what you sow and I wish you the best. For those who choose to inform themselves before making decisions, this article was written to illuminate as much about radiation therapy as possible.
