In this letter, Ronald M. Powell Ph.D. urges Maryland State Legislators to protect the health of the people of Maryland from the onslaught of wireless radiation. This document addresses the health impacts of radiation from smart meters, cell towers, WiFi in schools, and 5G small cells.
Dear Maryland Legislators,
Kindly consider these questions:
- Do you care about the health of children?
- Do you care about the health of adults?
- Do you care about the exploding costs of health care?
If your answer to any of these questions is “Yes”, then PLEASE LISTEN to the scientists and the physicians of the international biomedical research community. They are trying to warn everyone about the adverse health effects of the radiofrequency radiation that is employed by wireless devices. Simply stated:
Radiofrequency radiation is harmful to health.
The levels of manmade radiofrequency radiation in our environment, including right here in Maryland, are increasing. This increase is caused by the introduction of more and more wireless devices, without an understanding of the health consequences. These consequences can manifest differently in different individuals. Examples include sleep disruption; stress, anxiety, or irritability; headaches; ringing in the ears; concentration, memory, or learning problems; fatigue; loss of balance; eye problems; heart palpitations or arrhythmia; nerve pain; cancer; and many more.
These problems arise because all living things are bioelectrical in nature, including human beings. That is why electroencephalograms and electrocardiograms work; they measure the tiny electrical voltages that operate the brain and the heart. Unfortunately, the radiofrequency radiation from wireless devices is strong enough to disrupt many natural biological processes. That disruption can cause, or exacerbate, a host of chronic illnesses, leading even to death.
Yet such illnesses can go unexplained for several reasons:
- Many of the symptoms caused by exposure to radiofrequency radiation can have other causes, too, complicating diagnosis.
- The public does not yet know which symptoms can be caused by exposure to radiofrequency radiation and thus may not recognize the possible cause.
- Physicians are not yet trained to recognize the symptoms of exposure to radiofrequency radiation and to recommend remediation.
No one is immune to harm from radiofrequency radiation. So you may already know someone who is showing the symptoms of overexposure, perhaps even someone in your own extended family. But the connection to radiofrequency radiation may not yet have been made. The result can be continued suffering and a lost opportunity for recovery.
What are examples of the sources of radiation?
