This letter has been written because the situation in the UK is becoming very dangerous. Some ES/EHS people are suffering terribly, especially around airports, flight paths, MOD and US establishments, TV transmitters, radar, TETRA, upgraded 3G and wifi.

The technologies are mixing and the secondary frequencies this produces is causing more severe effects, as it infrasound and harmonics. These very low frequencies can be deadly, as you well know.

It goes without saying that more non-sensitive people are also unwell/ill and that a new breed of wifi sensitised people is emerging. Do we expect 3.5G sensitives soon? Time will tell.

How are our children coping? Can they concentrate at school with the mobile phone masts, TETRA and wifi close to them? Are they any better off at home? Why is there increasingly unsociable or bad behaviour, temper outbursts, more violent conflicts? Why do more children suffer leukaemia, autism, ADD and other conditions/illnesses?

Open Letter to the Health Protection Agency

* When will there be consideration for the more vulnerable children, sick, elderly and all animal life with the continuing roll out of technologies using pulsed microwave radiation i.e. TETRA and handsets, mobile phones and masts, cordless phones, wifi, microwave ovens and all "wireless" gadgets to include baby alarms?

* Why was Sir William's advice for a precautionary approach totally ignored?

* When will parents, family members, animal lovers, animal societies etc be given clear information that will enable them to make informed decisions about these new technologies operating on pulsed microwave radiation?

* When will the growing numbers of electrosensitive (ES) and hyper electrosensitive (EHS) people, who suffer so badly now, be treated in a more humane and fair way?

* When will medical staff and all relevant official departments be made aware of the effects of pulsed microwave radiation, as documented as "radiation sickness" many decades ago?

* Please do not tell us there is no evidence of harmful effects as there is more than enough peer reviewed research available.

* Please do not offer us the types of research which have already been undertaken in the UK that have no chance of presenting valid, clear and accurate representation of good scientific study.

* Please do not insult our intelligence and sincere concern

I write as an EHS person who has talked to hundreds of ES/EHS people over the past three years or so.

To privately or publicly declare yourself to be ES/EHS while governmental advisors and bodies deny its existence is a very hard road to walk for most. They are ignored, and can be abused and ridiculed by authority, to include health care and essential services. Family, friends, community and media can also be unbelieving, critical and/or abusive and because of the governmental stance on this issue. Therefore the circa 500 declared ES/EHS are the tip of the iceberg and I speak to many who won't declare.

Most electrosensitive people are totally aware of what is going on with these technologies.

They have had to prove to themselves by trial, error and research that this is not "all in the mind" or some other illness or condition. With a few it has taken 8 to 10 years of ill health and misdiagnosis.

Most ES/EHS know that they will heal if they can remove themselves from the technologies or the technologies can be kept away from them. Some ES/EHS watch and observe local non-sensitive people/ animal/plant life and see clearly what is happening.


Many of them have proved this for themselves.

* If the ES/EHS have discovered this proof, why can't this be a basis for meaningful research rather than the much criticised Essex Study which many ES/EHS would not take part it because they knew it would prove nothing?

* Why can't our children be monitored in schools where wifi and mobile phone masts are installed?

* Why can't their parents be made aware of the potential dangers to their children at home or in the community?

* Why can't cancer clusters and ill-health around mast clusters be monitored and researched properly and in situ?

I have been informed by the Health Protection Agency that it is the role of local Primary Care Trusts to monitor. How can they monitor effectively with no knowledge of the known biological effects of pulsed microwave information?

I only respect Sir William Stewart, whose advice the Government and the rest of you ignore. Only he tries to speak out for our children and only he warned that children and a minority of the population might be affected by the biological effects of pulsed microwave radiation. He will be a great loss to us when he retires this year, as he was the only honourable one amongst you all, in my opinion.

We have just received the following information from the Spectrum Alliance:

The UK and EU plans to phase out incandescent lightbulbs will mean suffering
and total social exclusion for people with light sensitivity conditions.
People with conditions including lupus, XP, forms of eczema and dermatitis,
electrosensitivity, ME and many more can suffer severe and painful reactions
to non-incandescent lighting.
Don't let the needs of sick and disabled people be ignored - go to to the
Campaign Page  to see how you can help."

The study "Wireless Radiation in the Etiology and Treatment of Autism: Clinical Observations and Mechanisms" has just been published in Australia. The full text is here .

Mast Sanity say:

"Looking at the statistics showing the increase in autism over the last decade to a now 1 in every 100 children, there must be a reason for this.

There are many research papers linking mercury in vaccines or mercury from mother's fillings with autism in children. This latest paper is linking the increase in microwave radiation indicating a possible synergistic effect. There have been other papers making this link.

It is alarming when one thinks of children's exposure if their parents have WiFI or a cordless phone in the house or if a school has a WiFi system or is near a phone mast. People don't realise that WiFi and cordless phones act like mini masts emitting radiation constantly whether or not in use. This autism epidemic is not a coincidence. There is a reason for everything. Its a basic rule of physics."

This study was covered in some editions of the Sunday Express on 18th November 2007. It is not online. We wonder why.

All 600 pages of BioInitiative at No 10 Downing Street
Yasmin hands over the BioInitiative Report to No 10

At 1pm on 12th December 2007 The BioInitiative Report was officially handed over to Number 10 Downing Street. In years to come this may be viewed as an occasion as momentous as the Moon Landing was - or maybe it will be yet another missed opportunity.

In our opinion no ordinarily intelligent person can read parts of the BioInitiative Report and say that there is nothing to worry about. The BioInitiative Report has created a paradigm shift [immense change] in the way that the issue is now viewed. Now the usual chant "safe because of ICNIRP" just doesn't work. Those who say it are either stupid or paid to say it.

Gordon Brown was absent at the time concentrating on the war in Afghanistan at the time so one of his departmental secretaries accepted the Report.

The accompanying letter to the 600-page document was as follows:-

Rt Honourable Gordon Brown MP

Prime Minister,

10 Downing Street,



Dear Prime Minister,

We call upon you to act on the information contained in the accompanying copy of The Bioinitiative Report as an urgent public health issue.

The BioInitiative Report is a review of 2000 studies of bioeffects and adverse health effects of non-ionising radiation (electromagnetic fields (EMFs) including extremely-low frequency ELF-EMF and radiofrequency (RF) / microwave or RF-EMF fields). The conclusion is that public exposure guidelines for emissions from mobile phone masts, Wi-fi and other mobile/wireless devices are set too high to protect public health. There are now plausible mechanisms for why microwaves cause illness at levels way below the current microwave radiation (ICNIRP) guidelines, which only cover heating effects and thus do not adequately protect against the biological non-heating effects seen.

It is not only cancers and brain tumours that are of concern. The Report offers evidence that a very large range of illnesses and other adverse health effects are linked to mobile phone technology. This year the Swedish and German authorities have put the health of their nations ahead of profits for their own mobile phone companies - they are issuing warnings to reduce exposure. We ask you to instruct the Chief Medical Officer and the Health Protection Agency to issue warnings to the public and ensure that public exposure limits are reduced immediately. Otherwise, the Government will be responsible for the huge health crisis that will occur in years to come. In time, those responsible in Government will be held to account for their continuing lack of action on this issue, continuing to fail to protect its citizens from the health hazards of EMFs.

Yours sincerely,

Mast Sanity

We have been asked by Safe Wireless Initiative - UK (SWI UK) to make this Electro-Sensitivity (ES) Health Survey available on our web site.

It is intended for Electro-Sensitive (ES) and Electro-Hyper-Sensitive (EHS) sufferers and anybody who is interested in the ES debate.

Please note that the current collection of UK data is to be returned for analysis, by 30th November 2007.

The ES Health Survey can be downloaded from here .

The accompanying SWI statement is as follows:-

"As part of our ongoing program addressing Electro-Sensitivity (ES) and other Electro-Magnetic Radiation (EMR) related symptoms, we are conducting a prevalence study in the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands, and Ireland Our main purpose is to derive accurate estimates of the magnitude of this problem. during the month of November.

It would be a great help to us if you would assist by distributing this survey instrument, attached as a .PDF file , among your contact network.

For persons who believe they are experiencing ES symptoms, we are distributing three copies of the survey instrument – one for them to fill out, and two for them to distribute to two other associates who they believe are not affected by electro-magnetic radiation.

For persons in the general public who are not familiar with ES or EMR related symptoms or who believe they are not affected, we are simply distributing as many copies as is practicable.

We are asking participants to mail the completed surveys to our UK postal address, by November 30.
