Video - ORT HOLON fight to remove the cell phone mast continues

A video presenting the fight of ORT HOLON parents for the removal of a cell phone mast is available at
https://youtu.be/zxDE_di-ThE



In front of ORT HOLON, a High school in the city of HOLON in Israel,  a cell phone mast was erected 23 years ago.  With the increase of Data usage, the exposure levels of the kids went up every year. last year, the parents noticed that most of the kids (59%) had symptoms that can be related to the RF exposure from the cell phone mast just 20 meters from the school. They conducted a survey that shows 59% of the kids has symptoms. about 19% already visit their doctor in relation to these symptoms. Since the parents understood this is not just one or 2 kids, but most of the kids, they started to fight for the removal of the mast.

Two weeks ago, after a meeting in the Knesset Internal affair and environmental protection committee, 3 antennas that faced the school (outs of a total of 9) were removed. The measured/monitor radiation levels went done just 30%. Side lobes and reflection steel seems to hit the school.

Now the parents call for complete removal of the mast. Yesterday they got the support of the Knesset Education committee that called for the removal of the mast in no more than 3 months.

Knesset Education Committee - 24/12/2018 - "remove the antennas in front of ORT HOLON in 3 months"


Today (24/12/2018) I took part in the Knesset Education Committee.
After a 1 hour discussion, the committee called for the removal of all the mast in 3 months.
This is after kids in this scall developed radiation sickness symptoms (about 59% according to a survey done by the parents ).

This is what happens (and will happen again and again) when the standards are based on heat only and are high and non-protective.

Maya Elhalal - Founder, CEO, Entrepreneur and one of the leading high-tech women in Israel is telling here EHS story

Maya Elhalal - Founder, CEO, Entrepreneur and one of the leading high-tech women in Israel came out the electric closet this week with her Hebrew-English post over Facebook.
https://www.facebook.com/mayaelhalal/posts/10155547254056261

Maya knocked on my door about half a year ago. Maya is a leading technologic woman, Founder, CEO, Entrepreneur and a consultant in health- longevity field. She then came to an EHS support meeting. In this meeting, she talked about here symptoms that appear when using smartphone and other wireless devices. She told me about her life that was put to a hold and about here understanding that the symptoms she endures are caused from exposure to EMF radiation, mainly but not only, RF.
I Then started with a preview to handling EHS 1on1. I explained about types of EMF, about measuring EMF, reducing exposure and protection. In addition, we talked about ways to handle EHS, about science and public activism for EHS and EMF health effect acknowledgment.

Maya promised that when she will land back on her feet, she will do whatever she can to support the fight for EHS acknowledgment.

Maya then started to learn about EMF, to measure it, to reduce exposure and to use RF protection. Maya found a new house that was low RF and she then set it up according to the best practices of a low EMF house using only wired technologies.  Slowly Maya got back in control of her life and her EHS condition. Her learning curve was very stip and the results were fast to come. Maya started to feel better and is now coming forward to help others!


On the 15/11/2018 Maya talked in front of the internal affairs and environmental protection committee in the Knesset (Israel Parlament) regarding the mass EHS case in ORT HOLON where a cellphone mast was installed 20 meters from the school, and about 600 students developed EHS symptoms.

Progress or Spin in ORT HOLON - The 3 antenna panels that were facing the school were removed - RFR level still high!

Last week the 3 antenna panels that were facing the school were removed.
RF measurements done by the parents in the school and a monitoring equipment on the roof show the levels of RFR were cut (by about 50%) but are still high.
The level is too high for students that already developed symptoms and are more sensitive.
In addition, they are not low enough for the temp protection that was installed to be removed.
I explained to the parents that the levels will stay high because of side and back lobes and also reflections from the building next by since there are still active panels which are not facing the school. I told the parents to expect kids that got sick, to continue to suffer from symptoms.
Although the strick is over at this point in time, the parents told me that they will continue to fight for the removal of all the mast in other means.

The science and technology committee in the Israel parliament (KNESSET) meeting about "the careless deployment of 5G"

Yesterday, the 20/11/2018, together with Prof' Ben Ishay, MD Yael Stain, Itamar Wagner, Batzion Shlomi, Shay Danon, Adit Aaron, I attended a meeting about the "the careless deployment of 5G".

The meeting was called by KM(Knesset Member) Yael Cohen Pharan and lead by KM Uri Makleb.

The video from the meeting is in Hebrew available in the following link, and bellow - https://youtu.be/sV5s_73y8eg



I talked at around 1:32:09 
My Main points were:
1.  As far as EHS being Nocebo effect, this wrong assumption is based on faulty studies that exposure EHS people to several types of EMF even where there was not supposed to be any exposure, and on studies that exposed EHS people again and again without enough resting time between exposures. 

2. As far as the saying that "more cell towers lower the radiation", yes they do so for the radiation from the cell phone but they add environmental radiation which is not measured correctly and not taking into account because it is lower than the so-called safety standards.  

3. I explained that most of the people that come to me for help have no idea of what radiation is, how when and from what it is being transmitted and how cellphone tower looks like. So this also roll out nocebo effect. 

4. It is possible to reduce exposure in simple steps and it is easy to set up the phone to radiate in lower levels, for less of the time.

5. My main point was that EHS people are being ignored and no one count or calculate the economic toll of their condition in the total economic calculation of deploying and using cellular and wireless technologies. 

Speakers:

KM Uri Makleb. 00:00
MK Yael Cohen Pharan - 04:14 

Adit Aaron - 12:30 - talked about her experience with symptoms of EMF exposure, then cooping with brain cancer and then becoming an activist trying to help others.
Itamar Wagner - 27:30 - talked about the activities against cellphone antennas and about the danger of exposure to RFR. 
Md Yael Stain -  32:50  - Talked about EHS, EMF health risk, and effect, about the other voices that say "all is good" and about her medical and scientific history in this field. 

Prof Paol Benishay -  1:14:25 - Talked about his findings (in his study of 5G mm-wave frequencies) , about EMF health effect and EHS.
Amir Borenstein -  1:32:09  - Please see above.

Shay Danon - 1:52:20  - Talked about moving to the far north part of Israel to avoid the radiation, living in a low EMF house, and about our obligation to do the right thing for the sake of our children. 

Batzion Shlomy - 1:56:21 - Talked about not using cell phones and wireless devices, about refusing a water smart meter and getting fines. Batzion continued to describe her communication with Prof' Sigal Sedesky about the health risk of RF radiation and cellphone in particular.

Knesset (Israel Parliament) committee meeting about the cell tower next to ORT HOLON - "Remove the antennas tomorrow morning"

Yesterday I attended the Knesset (Israel Parliament) committee meeting about the cell tower next to ORT HOLON.
In the meeting, the problem of the cell tower next to the ORT HOLON school was presented and diseased.  The parents presented their case and talked about the suffering of the kids in school. Both the parents of the late Itai Peretz talked about this griff and about the symptoms Itai (my his soul rest in peace) suffered from before he got sick, with leukemia.
In the meeting, Maya Elhalal, e leading Israeli high-tech interposure and consultant to the ministry of health talked about his EHS condition in support of the parents of ORT Holon and the kids. She argued that the science today already inform us that EMF radiation causes biological effect well under the so-called safety standards limits and that we can do better than what we did about smoking and asbestos, and lead.
The represented of the cell phone forum (PR body of the cell phone companies) was willing to dismantle the 3 antenna panels that face the school but said that the rest of the tower have to stay and this will be done only if the parents will stop their protest and strick.
The head of the committee summaries the meeting and said the committee will send a letter to the cell phone companies to dismantle the 3 panels addressing the school "tomorrow morning" (meaning very soon) as a first step while they should start the relocation process of the remaining cell phone tower.

The authority try to calm the parents of students in ORT HOLON after feeling radiation sickness symptoms

Last week there was a meeting between representatives of the Environmental Protection Ministry, The city municipality,  the school management, ORT schools network management in Israel , and the parents of students in the ORT HOLON school.
About 20 years ago, a cell tower was erected next to the school (20 meter from it). This year the parents finally noticed that their kids suffer from headaches, nausea, fatigue and other radiation sickness symptoms.  Last year one of the students in this school died from cancer.  The parents went on a struggle to take the tower done and they are on a two month strike in order to achieve that.
Please read more about it at this post - https://norad4u.blogspot.com/2018/10/about-60-of-students-in-ort-holon-are.html
I saw few parts of the meeting on videos and was sorry to see that all the official representatives were addressing only the quick return of the kids to school and not the removal of the antenna. The ministry representative, Prof Gelberg told the parents all kind of technical stuff that were not accurate and very simplified and somewhat misleading, like for example that he prefer cellphone towers on public buildings and that bellow and above the main lobe of the antenna there is no radiation (neglecting side lower/higher beams - see picture below). He also argued that the ministry is responsible only to the radiation and measurement side of the antenna, forgetting to note that the standards used are based on heat only and are not protective of humans, that the measurements are done by slow meters and therefor give partial results. I saw the municipality representative saying they can't do anything to help, that the tests are OK and the antenna have all the documentation (other municipalities helped in the past by finding problems in the structure or the infrastructure around the antenna and demanding it to be remove on that ground). Then the representative of ORT said that all they want is the return of the kids to school in the quickest and best way (but what about the kids that are already sick and the kids that will be sick from the radiation? ).

During the meeting there was a protest outside the school.

There is going to be a meeting in the Israeli parliament this week (15/11/2018) about this issue. In the meeting we expect to hear the same "not my responsibility" talks, but we hope to say the truth: Standards are high and non-protective, measurements are not done adequately, people are getting sick and everyone else just want to continue with their daily rothin.

International call for revoking the ICNIRP's mandate and for better standards

A call for better protective standards , revoking the mandate of ICNIRP is made by more than 244 scientists from around the world after ICNIRP ports it's draft for updates on it's Radiofrequency so called safety standards (a quick look reveals nothing is changed, the standards are still note protective of humans , protective of the industry and are based only on heat effect of the radiation).

The letter will be send to the WHO - World Health Organisation.

The letter is avilable at - http://www.iemfa.org/wp-content/pdf/EMF-Call-2018-10-30.pdf
Scientists and NGO can join in and ask their names to be added to the call.

about 60% of the students in ORT HOLON are suffering from RF Radiation sickness due to a cell tower 20 meters from the school!

According to videos and publications done by the parents of this school students (ages 12-18), it seems that about 60% of the students already suffer from headache, nausea and other symptoms of RF Radiation Sickness.
RF Radiation test reports shows average levels of up to 6uW/cm2 in the school.
The parents started a stick.
The City of Holon offered to install Temp RF protection on the windows of the classes that face the antenna. It seems that it brought a 90% reduction in RF levels.

This is possible because the high non-protective RF so called safety standards that allow up to 400-1000 uW/cm2. This is because of the ministry of environment protection policy to comply with ICNIRP standards.  Until RF safety standards will be based on Biological damage and health effect of RFR, we will see this happen again and again all over the world.

Videos from the parents protest in front of the school.
The videos are in Hebrew but you can hear the parents shouting slogans to remove the tower and the kids symptoms.

ICNIRP's updated standards - more of the same industry protecting heat based standards.

ICNIRP posted it's draft of updated standards (Radiofrequency so called safety standards).
A quick look reveals nothing is changed, the standards are still note protective of humans , very protective of the industry and are based only on heat effect of the radiation.
