Stealth Canada - Deep-Sixing the Science on Wireless Radiation

STEALTH CANADA—deep-sixing the science on wireless radiation

Health Canada is inspiring activism in even the most passive Canadians (especially those harmed by wireless microwave radiation from WiFi, cell phones etc)—motivating them to protect their own health, ensure their own survival, stand up for their rights, and tap into their compassion and humanity—since Health Canada seems incapable of doing any of these things for them.

Teachers, too, are being challenged to become empowered. If they dare to test the levels of radiation coming from WiFi routers in their school, to protect their own health as well as the health of the schoolchildren, or if they turn the router off when not in use, they can lose their job. One teacher in BC—Maria Plant—who has been teaching for 30 years, was forced to retire because the WiFi in her school became intolerable, and she now has such severe electro-sensitivity, as a result, that she can no longer lead a normal life. "It's been emotionally and physically devastating to slowly succumb to this disorder of EHS [electromagnetic hypersensitivity]," she says, "as it forced me to give up the two loves of my life: teaching and physical outdoor activity, because my inner ear and balance are most severely affected by radiofrequency signals."

No lessons learned

Yet fighting for your rights can be hard to do when you're ill, and Plant says that EHS has resulted in depression and a crippling sense of defeat. "Sometimes, it feels as if it would be easier to just quit living," she says. "My personal life and relationships have fallen apart and I can no longer engage in social activism or contribute as a teacher and Union Rep. It has torn me from my close-knit community and the life-long friends who were my source of joy and support."

Paying for alternative medicines, therapies and specialists can be tough for a single adult, but the financial burden of selling her home and moving several times, working part-time for five years, and losing her last five years of pension contributions has been overwhelming for Plant.

Worst of all, she says, is the ridicule and humiliation from uninformed doctors, specialists, colleagues and parent groups, friends, associates and family members who mocked her symptoms. "They did not believe me when I told them that wireless radiation was the cause of my illness, or the cause of the anxiety and the flu-like symptoms (vomiting, dizziness, head pain, eye pain etc) that my vulnerable seven-year-old students reported while working near the WiFi routers at school."

A growing generation of harm

If adults can be so severely affected, imagine what these high levels of non-stop microwave radiation are doing to young schoolchildren. One of them—12-year-old Tyler from Victoria, BC (pictured below)—can no longer go to school as the WiFi radiation causes severe headaches, vomiting, insomnia, night terrors and fatigue. Three school districts in BC have refused to accommodate him by turning off the WiFi routers or hard-wiring the computers—which could so easily be done. Instead, Tyler is being denied his right to an education, not to mention being able to socialize with his friends, build important life skills such as communication and team-building, take part in sports, build his self-esteem or do any of the things that teenagers normally do as part of their healthy development.

What kind of government refuses to allow children such as Tyler to go to school without being harmed—and knowingly harms all the other children who may not yet be feeling the radiation's effects? Why should any child—or adult—be denied this fundamental right, and instead be excluded and forced to function in isolation as if they were the problem rather than the toxic environment?
