Safety dossier on the link between exposure to microwave radiation and induction of various cancers and other adverse biological effects

 

In early 2015 I prepared dossiers on microwave frequencies and their impact on our health. I sent one dossier to Anna Eagle, Labour MP for Wirral. She never replied nor did I receive an acknowledgement that my dossier had been received by her office staff. The dossier I sent is here. Elected officials do have a moral if not legal duty to respond to any concerns by its constituents. Looking back however, I think she and her office were more concerned with the upcoming General Election than anything else. Whatever the reason, there is no excuse for not replying to my perfectly legitimate query. So much for our caring, sharing and 'cuddly' political parties!!

The next organisation I sent my dossier to are the people responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of churches within the UK (churchofengland.org). I live in the Wirral close to New Brighton. Many of the churches here have mobile phone transmitting and receiving antennas installed in their spires and other high vantage points. This is a major problem for local people because most churches are built on high ground and the higher the height of mobile phone antennas, the more chance that microwave irradiation will initiate adverse biological effects in our bodies. The dossier I sent the church can be found here.

The response from the church is below:

Dear Dr Evans

Thank you for your letter addressed to the Archbishops’ Council in which you urged caution over the installation of mobile phone masts on church buildings, and for the attached documents.

Decisions over the installation of mobile phone masts on churches are made by Diocesan Chancellors in the granting of a faculty (or not) for an installation. These decisions are taken bearing in mind all relevant representations made to the court including information relevant to public health and safety.

Neither the Archbishops’ Council nor the Church Buildings Council offers blanket support for the installation of mobile phone antennas in church buildings. Each case is considered on its merits.

Yours sincerely

Dr David Knight

I asked Dr Knight if there was anyone else I could speak to in relation to trying to find out the process undertaken by the church on whether or not to allow the telecoms giants space within their churches to install mobile phone transmitting equipment. I still await their reply.

The image below shows the installation of mobile phone transmitting antennas atop a church called Saint Andrews United Church. The church is located in Egerton Street, New Brighton Wallasey UK. Because churches were historically built on high ground, this particular set of mobile phone antennas emits a very strong microwave radiation signal over quite a wide area of the New Brighton promenade as well as irradiating local residents and worshippers.

.

The third organisation I asked in regard to allowing installation of mobile phone transmitting equipment on their properties and consequent adverse biological effects was English Heritage. The dossier I sent to them is here.

My initial query to English Heritage is below:

"Dear sir/madam,

Apologies if I have sent this query to the wrong department. If so, can you please pass onto the appropriate organisation. I have a query on the installation of mobile phone antennas within an historic water tower located in Gorsehill Road, Wallasey. The full ID of the building is below .

I attach a document containing my query.

Thanks, Ellis

The response from English Heritage was:

Thank you for your e-mail.

We will aim to respond to your request within two working days. Some enquiries are complex and may take longer however, if this is the case we will advise you of this. Please also feel free to contact our Customer Services department on 0370 333 1181 should you wish to discuss your query further.

English Heritage cares for over 400 historic buildings, monuments and sites from world-famous prehistoric sites to grand medieval castles, from Roman forts on the edges of empire to a Cold War bunker. Through these, we bring the story of England to life for over 10 million people each year.

English Heritage never replied to my request and their response is typical of organisations that do not like to bite the hand that feeds them. In return for siting mobile phone infrastructure on hundreds of English Heritage properties, English Heritage are paid lots of money by the mobile phone companies. Long story short, English Heritage have absolutely no interest in engaging with anyone on these types of basic safety questions.

Clearly, organisations that receive monies to allow the installation of mobile phone transmitting equipment on their properties are not prepared to ask the telecom giants any awkward questions. Even where the evidence of harm is given to them on a plate, it appears they have no appetite to look at it closely. At the very least, these organisations should adopt the precautionary approach in all matters related to pulsed microwave radiation. If they do allow installation of these antennas on their properties they should at least have notices in prominent positions to tell the public that they are in areas of high signal intensity pulsed microwave radiation.

.

The real point of all this is that it is we who must make the first moves towards raising awareness and consciousness on these issues. The dossier I sent these organisations is useful downloadable information of harm. This harm will eventually affect everyone exposed to pulsed microwave radiation. Please send this information onto neighbours, friends and family. At least make them aware of this gigantic pink elephant in the living room. Do your utmost to get this information out there. If not you, who?

All planning departments and councillors responsible for planning decisions should also be aware of the wealth of recent medical and epidemiological studies that strongly show a correlation between exposure to pulsed microwave radiation and induction of cancers.
