“Across the world, people are working in different ways to get rid of this dangerous and disruptive technology. Scientists, doctors, lawyers, educators, and activists everywhere are striving hard to counter the narrative that wireless technologies are safe and harmless. They publish studies, host media sites, initiate legal action, and try Changes in government policies related to wireless technologies.
But what can ordinary people do to help the campaign? We can write letters to our elected officials, we can educate others by telling them about the dangers of wireless technology, we can lead by example by not using wireless technologies ourselves, and we can display banners and slogans telling the world we are protesting.
Signs and slogans are important because they are visible at street level. The world around us is full of advertisements for wireless technology. In fact, the world is full of people using technology, talking and taking pictures on their smartphones, accessing the web or social media – people these days seem to be spending more time online than they do in the real world. But the internet is not the real world, and people have to search for a topic to access information about it. Signs and logos can reach people who don’t know wireless technology is harmful, or who think it’s safe. They can grab people’s attention and make them think. They can start a conversation. It can be captured with a camera, and shown in a news photo or TV clip.
think about it. If enough ordinary people showed some kind of sign or symbol that showed they protested wireless technologies — whether it’s cell towers or public Wi-Fi, or small 5G cells, whatever — think about how far the message we don’t want for the technologies will spread. wireless. You don’t have to stand on a street corner with a loudspeaker: just put up a sign in the yard, put on a T-shirt, or put a sticker on your car.” — natural activist

“One of the hardest things about trying to convince people that wireless technology is dangerous is the fact that they already know it’s dangerous. They just don’t care. They don’t care because wireless technology is so convenient, it’s so much a part of everyday life, it’s so addictive. They don’t care because they want to. Believing that bad things that can happen will not happen to them.
What are some of the bad things that can happen as a result of exposure to wireless technology? These include brain tumors, acoustic neuromas, neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, thyroid dysfunction, infertility, testicular cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer, thyroid cancer, asthma, excessive weight gain, brain fog, and ADHD . Then there are the symptoms of electrophysiological hypersensitivity, which include headache, lactose intolerance, unexplained fatigue, hyperactivity, aggressiveness, and inexplicable irritability. Neither of these lists is by any means complete, but you get the picture: radio radiation isn’t healthy. But how do you convince people to stop using wireless technology?
I’m trying to tell people I know to turn off their Wi-Fi, get rid of their cordless phones, and not use wearables like smartwatches. If they must use a mobile phone, at least put it on the speakerphone and not hold it over their heads. If you must carry a mobile phone, do not at least carry it in a pocket next to sensitive body parts such as the genitals. Most of this well-intentioned advice is met with a blank look and the words, “I know, but…” followed by whatever excuse they could come up with at that time. The bored look tells me that they are patient with the forearm.
And after. This is a small town, about seven thousand people, which means that most people know each other by sight if not by name; This is good enough to see changes in people, to notice changes in the city itself. When someone dies, funeral notices are plastered all over town, and everyone knows how old the person was and what caused their death. And there have been changes in the past few years, notable changes.
What changes have we seen? One big change = Bigger people
For one thing, everyone gets very fat. Not just fat, but obese. This is alarming because until now the Greeks were not obese – true obesity was very rare. The change was relatively abrupt, affecting many if not most people. This may be due to excessive or bad food, but our personal experience says otherwise. We lived in the city surrounded by everyone’s Wi-Fi signals for three years, gained weight even though we didn’t change our eating habits and got plenty of exercise. When we moved to the country we live in now – where there is no Wi-Fi – we lost weight. Our clothes fit again.
Several people, mostly women, who were not obese, suddenly developed severe flatulence, which is an early sign of thyroid dysfunction and is definitely associated with radio-irradiation exposure. I know because I was there. I pointed this out to a friend who has gone from being a skinny, attractive woman to looking like she’s eight months pregnant. She knows she has a thyroid problem, but doctors say it’s a “breaking line” and won’t cure it. She won’t turn off Wi-Fi or stop messing with her smartphone. And no other woman I spoke to had Hashimoto’s disease. Meanwhile, endocrinologists have opened not one store in our small town, but two; We are not used to owning any of them. Nor did we have or need a child psychologist/speech therapist who specializes in behavioral disorders such as, you guessed it, ADHD. That’s funny.
Many people we know experience worse effects of radio radiation, or have a close relative. Some died. Our next-door neighbor’s daughter died of a brain tumor, and they know her doctors were worried about using her cell phone. Her sister carries her smartphone everywhere and won’t be separated from it.
A friend whose mother has Alzheimer’s started calling people wrong names all the time. Other times, he forgets people’s names completely. He is very worried about this, but he will not stop wearing his smartwatch, or carrying his smartphone with him all the time. He also lives directly under a set of cell towers, but has really deteriorated since he got the phone and watch. He has also developed a distended belly, although he is very fit.
A local pharmacist has a young daughter who suffers from severe asthma. I told her my husband has fully recovered from his asthma since we got out of town and switched off Wi-Fi for everyone, but she won’t turn off Wi-Fi at home. A lot of kids these days have asthma, which was very rare.
A friend with an acoustic neuroma on the side of her head who uses her cell phone will not accept that the phone caused the neuroma, although the ear doctor says the link is known; He has a lot of patients with acoustic neuromas. Refuse to get a land line.
A local GP treating a number of young men for testicular cancer is concerned about the number of such patients, but he will not tell people to stop carrying phones in trouser pockets because the government has not issued a health warning for this. His father, an electrical engineer, had been warning him for years about the effects of electromagnetic radiation, but he refused; Both his home and office have Wi-Fi. He and his wife and daughter have increased in weight significantly.
A local shop owner is given fits of pure rage and screaming when a customer teases him. You can hear it a short distance away, and these explosions become more frequent – people joke about it, but it’s not funny. He is sensitive to electricity but he doesn’t know it. His store has Wi-Fi, but even if he turns it off, it will still be affected by signals from all the nearby stores and cafes. Aggressive driving has become the norm, with anger directed behind the wheel rather than at customers, friends, and family members.
Supermarket carts are full of lactose and gluten-free products, which just didn’t exist a few years ago. Many people we know complain that they can no longer sleep more than two hours a night. One supermarket now sells melatonin as a sleep aid, as well as magnesium recommended for relieving some of the symptoms associated with radioactive radiation.
Brain tumors, thyroid problems, obesity, neurological diseases, asthma, testicular cancer, breast cancer, lactose intolerance, headaches, insomnia, fatigue, anger – we know people with all of these problems, and many who have died at a very young age. This is an island with plenty of fresh air, good food, sunshine and plenty of opportunities for exercise and sports. It is not a smog-filled city where one lives among towering concrete canyons. So why are so many people – including so many young people and children – so sick?
What we share with every city in the world is the proliferation of cell phone towers, Wi-Fi in almost every store and in every home, and the proliferation of handheld and wearable radioactive devices. We are poisoned as the rest of the world is poisoned. Cell towers and people’s Wi-Fi networks and devices are stealing their health and the health of their children. To a greater or lesser degree, everyone realizes this, however, they keep making excuses.
“I know, but I need the phone to work.”
“I know, but what does it matter if I turn off Wi-Fi? The neighbors still keep it.”
“I know, but without my smartwatch, how do I know my pulse and respiration rates when I run?”
“I know, but I can’t get rid of a cell phone tower, can I?”
“I know, but how can I call my child if he doesn’t have a phone?”
“I know, but what if there was an emergency?”
“I know, but I don’t use the phone much, really.”
“I know, but you can’t turn back the clock, can you?”
“I know but…”
There are a million excuses.
I must believe that we can turn back the clock, and that the mind, good health, and a healthy environment can be restored. I refuse to accept the idea that the wireless future is the only future, because if that were the case, we wouldn’t have a future. It’s time to do something about it.” – Natural Activist
