Gerry Higgins of Norris Arm, Newfoundland is a tireless campaigner against cancer and the adverse health effects of transformer and powerline electro magnetic fields.
 
Last night he had a lengthy interview on radio CJOB.  His story is very sad, yet very interesting and I highly recommend that you listen to it.

Please pass this information to others who may be trying to understand why their family or friends have developed cancer. 
 
Note - (My own Father and Step Mother lived in England with huge electrical distribution lines running accross their backyard and very close to their house.  When I visited them I could not sleep properly and was often awake in the middle of the night, even though I was exausted.  I used to blame the problem on jet lag because of the change of time zones.  Since then I have become knowledegable about electrical pollution and I now realize that the sleep disruption was really caused by exposure to EMFs. My Step Mother died (too soon) from stomach cancer and my father died of the same thing a few years later. I am sure that their deaths were caused by exposure to EMFs from those distribution lines.)

Famous UK comedian Jasper Carrott and Eileen O’Connor from the UK Radiation Research Trust joined Clive & Wendy Baggott and residents in Kingswinford campaigning for the removal of a phone mast due to the discovery of a huge cancer cluster and ill health surrounding the masts.

 

The group chanted “Health not Wealth”!

Danger looms, warns top US scientist


10:47am Thursday 7th August 2008


CAMPAIGNERS calling for the demolition of the High Acres tower have won support from a leading American scientist.


Dr George Carlo is a globally recognised expert on the effects of radiation from mobile phone masts who advises the World Health Organisation and US Congress.

The researcher, lawyer and author has pledged his support to residents in High Acres who say radio waves from phone masts on the massive disused water tower may be putting lives at risk.


Dr Carlo said: “The scientific facts are clear that danger looms for users of wireless devices, those who live in the vicinity of wireless infrastructure and the general public.”

He told the High Acres campaigners: “It is a mistake to subject the residents of your community to the dangers attendant to the provision of wireless service that goes far beyond your community usage or need.”


Dr Carlo is set to meet members of the The High Acres Base Station Mast Action Group during a visit to London for an international conference on health and mobile technology in September.

Mast campaigner Wendy Baggott believes Dr Carlo’s support is a big boost for the drive to demolish the tower.


Mrs Baggott said: “This really is wonderful news, we are honoured and privileged to receive an offer of help to our community from Dr Carlo.”


Another big name to back the campaign is Alasdair Philips, director of Powerwatch, an independent pressure group which has been researching wireless radiation for 20 years.

Alasdair Philips said: “In my opinion, it is inexcusable that the Health Protection Agency are keeping the lid on this vital debate by continuing to say that mobile phones and masts are completely safe, when it is clear to many of us who study the scientific reports that we should be far more precautionary in our use of this technology.

“I have good reason to believe that they are doing this because the Government is currently earning about £20bn per year in tax revenue from mobile communications and they see short-term income as more important than long-term health of the population.

“
This happened before in the 1950s regarding the hazards of smoking. It is happening again now.”


Protestors mobilise to demand phone mast is scrapped

10:44am Thursday 7th August 2008


NEARLY 1,000 people in Kingswinford have mobilised behind campaigners demanding the demolition of a controversial phone mast site.

Residents on the High Acres estate, who say they are living in fear of radiation from over 18 antennae on a disused water tower, have already collected over 900 names on a petition calling for the eyesore to be scrapped.


Campaigners say the tower, in the middle of a public open space, may be causing a range of serious health problems including fatal cancers, despite radio waves from it’s masts being within UK safety guidelines.


Fifteen businesses, including Wordsley Green hair salon Jones & Hackett, are backing The High Acres Base Station Mast Action Group by collecting signatures from concerned customers.

Shop owner, Mandy Jones-Hackett, said: “We have numerous customers whose strength of feeling is that they would like something done about the phone mast on High Acres estate.

“Somebody out there needs to consider the people and places where they put them.”


The tower recently made national headlines after the Stourbridge News revealed it produced significantly higher levels of radiation than any other English site surveyed by government watchdog Ofcom this year.


Kingswinford and Wall Heath councillors Dave Tyler and Lynn Boleyn have also taken up the cause after paying a visit to the site last week.

Cllr Tyler said: “The council would have faced massive opposition if this land had been open green space and they had earmarked this site for a brand new telecoms tower.

“Unfortunately the industry saw their chance to capitalise on a redundant water tower and the council just allowed it to happen and expand by stealth.

“It should frighten people to know that Dudley Council does not even have a complete record of what telecoms equipment is based in the borough.”

Cllr Boleyn added: “Apart from being an eyesore, this is a very serious local, national and global issue where many lives could be at risk, especially our childrens’.”

Wendy Baggott, from The High Acres Base Station Mast Action Group, said: “We are just going from strength to strength every day.

“I want to thank everyone who is helping us, without everyone on board we couldn’t do this, it shows we are definitely a community.

“It’s overwhelming, it’s not only residents in High Acres, we are taking it to a wider area, we have support locally, nationally and worldwide.”

Your Say Your Stourbridge

Eileen OConnor, Sutton Coldfield says...
2:29pm Thu 7 Aug 08

I was very sorry to hear about yet another cancer cluster around phone masts, you are not alone in this battle, it is a global issue.

It’s good to hear your campaign is going from strength to strength and you now have some world class experts such as Alasdair Philips from Powerwatch UK and American Scientist Dr George Carlo, willing to offer advice and help along with councillors Dave Tyler and Lynn Boleyn.

I congratulate you on your campaign to raise awareness about the dangers of phone masts. I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 38 after living 100m from a phone mast and discovered I was living in one of the many cancer clusters around phone masts.

Please go to the Radiation Research Trust website and read my PowerPoint presentation about my story which is available on the front page. Also go to the research section and view my PowerPoint presentation on phone masts which contains information and research.

The RRT is organising a major conference in September, 2008 which is mainly, but not exclusively, based around the microwave/mobile phone communications and health and is bringing both sides of the debate together from the highest level in the world for the first time. Dr George Carlo will be presenting and Alasdair Philips from Powerwatch UK is also attending.

Keep up the good work to encourage your MP Ian Pearson, Minister for Science and Innovation to protect public health.
