Wi-Fi Refugee

Ever noticed how phone masts seem to dominate the landscape no matter where you are? A residential area, retail area, area of natural beauty, phone masts dominate the landscape just so we can stay connected on our mobile phones. Apart from being a “blight” on the landscape, having the convenience of a mobile phone 24/7 has resulted in some of us getting sick.

Up until 2011 my addiction to using a mobile led to a complete breakdown of my body’s ability to mitigate the constant barrage of wireless microwave radiation. My phone was literally making me feel ill – so I put it away in a drawer and began the ‘learning curve’ of learning to live without it.

My reaction to microwave radiation meant I was now called “electro-sensitive” but no-one in the mainstream media seemed to want to talk about us unless we were portrayed as an ‘anomaly’ or a bunch of ‘tin-hatters’ or ‘weirdos; Even today people don’t believe people with ES can feel the radio- frequency signals, and some even begrudge turning their phones off if they are with me. (most are obliging though even if some of them find it a bit strange)

It’s not surprising since the cell phone industry goes out of its way to pay “their” scientists to say there is no correlation between electro-magnetic frequencies (EMF’s) and physical harm, but of course there are many credible studies that prove the opposite is true. Dr Olle Johansson, a leading researcher from Stockholm, Sweden, is the author of The Bioinitiative report an important peer reviewed study which conclusively proves that EMF’s do cause physical harm.

Johnanssen is an associate professor in the Department of Neuroscience, at the Karolinska Institute (famous for its Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine) in Stockholm, Sweden and is been considered to be a world-leading authority in the field of EMF radiation and health effects.

He says that as early as the 1930s, EHS (Electrohypersensitivity) symptoms were observed in people working with radio and electricity, and with military radar in the 1940s. And that for several years, there was a lot of evidence pointing out that this type of artificial, modern, man-made electromagnetic fields which did damage molecules, cells, tissues, organs, animals, plants, bacteria, etc.”

Agencies like ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation) and other regulatory government agencies who set guidelines for consumers tell us EMF’s can be potentially carcinogenic but then leave it to the consumer to decide whether he and his family should be exposed, or not. “All of them have delegated responsibility to society. For their part, radiation protection authorities in many countries say that EMR is safe, but that, for security reasons, perhaps we should not use the mobile phone so much, and we should keep it away from our body, use hands-free devices, etc”

In Sweden impairments are viewed from the point of the environment. That means that no human being is in itself impaired there are instead shortcomings in the environment that cause the impairment that it is the environment that should be treated, not the people, and the people are completely normal and healthy but they react to inferior environments.”, stated Dr. Johansson in the conference Health Effects of EMF: A Neuroscientist’s Views.’

It seems inferior environments is what we have been given and participating in the outside world has become more and more challenging over time.

After being diagnosed as being electro-sensitive I only needed to avoid being around people using their smart phones (it’s easy enough to walk away and stop using wi-fi) But then they gave us smart meters. These meters emit very strong radio frequency signals, 24/7. and then to add injury to insult the telecoms upgraded all their phone mast antennae to 5G.

In 2018 I was living in a lovely old village in Somerset, England, where most a of the houses had thatched roofs – and there was a lovely little church that dated back to the 13th century. Sadly, after a non-stop, mass media campaign in the UK everyone in the village decided to install a smart meter.

The year long media campaign convinced people that they were better off going digital and saving money, which was not the case in British Columbia, Canada, where their bills came in with higher readings than from their old reliable analog meters, so there was actually an increase in recorded usage.

I was naturally frustrated as I’d already left my home behind on Salt Spring Island thanks to a mandated smart meter rollout and now, after five years in the UK, It looked like I would have to move again. And even though they weren’t mandated in the UK everyone fell for the media campaign and believed they were more convenient and would save them money.

The pain from the meters in the village was so bad I spent the next 6 months living in the kitchen at the back of the house and the bedroom above. I looked at the map and wondered where I could go next. I thought about relocating to the Isle of Skye, the Wilds of Scotland, the Yukon! In the end I decided to move to Ireland. It was closer and they didn’t have smart meters (yet) I told myself that if I could rent a house in a sparsely populated area that I might be alright. After a lot of searching I found a house in the mountains of South Kerry surrounded by grazing sheep.

I quickly settled in, and enjoyed trekking into the local town with its independent shops and restaurants – but then something worse happened. All the masts in and around town were upgraded to 5G and they were incredibly powerful signals.

The old 3G and 4G masts in town had never bothered me. I could spend hours there and not feel a thing, but as soon as 5G antenna were installed their effect on me was so painful and devastating I had to avoid going there.

So in 2021 after only a year after moving into my present home I was literally trapped in and around the back roads and couldn’t get into town. And worse still there’s been a recent application to erect another 5G mast just a kilometre away from my home. At that distance I don’t know if it will affect me or not. It might be far enough away (and I have lots of trees around my property which are known to interrupt 5G signals) but If I begin to get heart palpitations, migraine headaches, insomnia and other nasty symptoms, then I will have to move again – and possibly leave my house before it is sold. The question is where do I go next? The local council will be making their decision on January 16th.
