WiFi Radiation as Dangerous as Microwave Weapons, Warns Physicist

About 40 or so years ago the Russians were caught microwaving the U.S. Embassy in Moscow with low dose microwave radiation. The result was miscarriages, cancer, leukemia and other health problems acquired by U.S. Embassy personnel. Barry Trower, a microwave weapons specialist for British Military Intelligence, claims that Radiation from Wi Fi is virtually the same frequency at a higher dose and is no different from a microwave weapon. SO WHY DID THE PORTLAND PUBLIC SCHOOLS JUST SPEND 200,000.00 DEFENDING A LAW SUIT SO THEY CAN CONTINUE TO MICROWAVE OUR KIDS WHEN A WIRED SYSTEM IS STILL IN PLACE??

WiFi Radiation as Dangerous as Microwave Weapons, Warns Physicist

By LUIS MIRANDA | THE REAL AGENDA

Barrie Trower, a British physicist and expert on microwave weapons warned this week about the dangers of WiFi radiation, which he says, is as dangerous as the radiation emitted by microwave weapons. Mr. Trower is not just a scientist who happened to study microwave energy as a tool for warfare, he dedicated most of his career to studying the effects what this kind of technology has on whoever and whatever is exposed to it.

Mr. Trower completed research for the Royal British Navy and military intelligence regarding the effects of microwave energy. Trower decided to leave his retirement to clear up the fog about whether the radiation emitted by WiFi technology is harmless to humans, as other people have said recently. During an interview with the Toronto Star, Trower spoke about the dangers of WiFi radiation and how other household appliances also emit the same kind of energy also harmful to all living things.

Previous to Mr. Trower speaking out, an organization called Health Canada had publicly said that WiFi networks posed no threat to human health and that therefore it was fine to install and maintain WiFi networks in schools and other public places often visited by large numbers of people. Mr. Trower shook the validity of the report from Health Canada, by saying that the radiation frequencies emitted by WiFi signals is equal to those used in microwave weapons. In his speeches and meetings with members from Health Canada, Barrie Trower provided documentary proof in paper form where he explains how and why WiFi radiation is so dangerous to humans and specially to children.

In the document, Mr. Trower begins by providing an account of his experience studying the effects of microwave radiation and then describes how these radiation has the capacity to literally cook living things while they're alive.

"The Cold War extended my military education into the full diversity of stealthmicrowave warfare and communication systems," Trower said. "I was previously aware of reports concerning dead birds in and around communication bases. On examination these birds were found to be cooked."

Trower goes further to explain that microwave technology is the selected mode of communication in military settings because its radio waves are so strong that they are capable of penetrating places where no other form of radio waves can get.

Trower adds that sickness due to exposure to microwave radiation was first seen and reported back in 1932, when it was identified as 'microwave or radio wave sickness.' Among the symptoms of such sickness, experts have found severe tiredness, fatigue, fitful sleep, headaches, intolerability and high susceptibility to infection. The symptoms, he says, are a consequence of the athermal effects of the radiation; that is, the effects the radiation has without emitting or exposing the victims to any kind of noticeable heat waves.

In his document prepared for the Kind of Botswana, Trower cites the example of the US Embassy in Moscow, which was irradiated with low level microwave energy during the Cold War. The consequences of this radiation, says Trower, were multiple cancers, leukaemias and other illnessess that appeared among Embassy workers and their relatives.

Regarding exposure to people and especially children to low levels of Wi Fi radiation, Trower said: "That's wrong", as he asserted there are no safe levels of exposure to that kind of radiation. According to his research and the International Commission for Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection Guidelines, children, the elderly and people with poor health are the most likely to have less tolerance to Wi Fi radiation, that is why he considers it inadmissible to promote the installation of Wi Fi technology in highly populated areas or places like schools, where children spend a great deal of time.

Forty years later after the effects of microwave radiation were discovered and documented, the US Naval Medical Research Institute (NMRI) documented 2300 research articles that reported over 120 illnesses originated from radio frequency and non-ionizing microwave radiation. This information obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request extracts documents confirming the military was well aware of the dangerous effects of microwave radiation, but chose to hide that information to avoid drawbacks to commercial applications.

"If the more advanced nations of the West are strict in enforcement of stringent exposure standards, there could be unfavourable effects an industrial output and military functions," Trower said.

Barrie Trower says that "children are physiologically and neurologically immature. It takes years for the blood-brain barrier to form, leaving children more prone to cell-leakage from microwave radiation." He adds that a person's natural immune system takes 18 years to develop, therefore children are completely unprotected against this radiation. He has visited numerous schools around the world and found that children exposed to WiFi, report the same symptoms reported back in 1932: fatigue, headaches, nausea, chest pain and vision problems.

In the document he provided to the King of Botswana, Trower mentions that his research reveals that both children and women are more vulnerable to disease caused by exposure to radiation such as the kind emitted by Wi Fi and microwave. "Children have less dense bones, immature immune systems and, by virtue of their size, they can act as aerials. Females have more complex hormone based systems to be disrupted than males." he adds.

Indeed, governments have kept this information hidden for over 40 years now. They learned about the dangers of Wi Fi and microwave radiation for decades and chose not to say anything fearing that the profits that corporations have accumulated through the sale of Wi Fi technology and all the products and services that originated from it.

Trower's research as well as the documents obtained through the FOIA requests should be sufficient proof beyond reasonable doubt that this technology has been used not only to get people addicted to it, but also to cause mass disease for decades. "They're afraid of lawsuits if they admit this is dangerous," said Trower. Fortunately, they do not need to admit such dangers in order for legal action to be taken. It wouldn't be strange to see lawsuits popping up as a consequence of Trower's revelations. Both governments and technology companies must be held accountable for collaborating with the mass poisoning of humanity and all other forms of life.
