BEWARE DANGERS OF ELECTRONICS
I EMPATHISE with Jody Watkins (”When modern life is a hi-tech hell”, Sunday Tasmanian, July 29).
After living too close to a tower, I became severely electro-hypersensitive to the degree that an electronic car key could temporarily cripple me, and mobile phones and Wi-Fi affected my neuroimmunological system so badly that I twice almost died.
The communications corporations obviously do not want you to know about such inconveniences and so tend to push people like Jody or myself under the rug.
I have had maybe 30 hours of repetitive conversations with the NBN rollout crew, wondering if my currently safe housing will become a nightmare any day now. I do not fit their picture. But all tests worldwide are showing that Jody Watkins and I are canaries in a deadly mine. What is happening at a cellular level to us is also happening to you and especially to your children.
We once thought that smoking was OK — in hospitals, restaurants, everyone smoked! It was safe, right? Well, radiation is a whole lot more dangerous, which is why Lloyd’s of London refused to insure communications companies from the get-go against future liability.
People wonder why children cannot learn in schools any more. Wi-Fi and classroom iPads along with electronic recreation are interfering with the natural communication among cellular systems in the body and damaging young brains as they are being formed. J.J. Earthschild Taroona
