President’s Message

by Sally Fallon Morell

In this issue we focus on the growing danger of manmade electromagnetic radiation (EMR), from “smart” phones, iPads, tablets, “smart” meters, cell towers, Wi-Fi and even “smart” appliances, all bathing us in a sea of various microwave frequencies, the likes of which mankind has never experienced before. What are the effects of this technology on human life and health, and how can we minimize any negative consequences?

Conventional physicists and the whole “smart” phone and meter industry insist that there are no “non-thermal” effects from these gadgets. But research sponsored by the Weston A. Price Foundation and published in this issue shows that this claim is false (page 19). Smart phones, which radiate microwave frequencies at all times, do indeed have very negative effects on the blood, causing rouleaux, clumping and pathological changes to the shape of red blood cells. This study was necessarily small and preliminary, but it highlights the urgent need for a full investigation. In the meantime, we need to be very careful about how we use these devices.

“Smart” meters to read household electricity, gas and water use are another huge danger, delineated in these pages; these have been foisted on the public surreptitiously, with little or no study of their effects. Some individuals have extreme reactions to these devices, and who knows what sub-clinical effects there may be?

Our philosophy is never to describe a problem without offering advice for solving it, and there are plenty of suggestions in this issue for minimizing exposure and protecting yourself through a good diet. And when it comes to “smart” meters, just putting up strong resistance to their installation may be effective. When PEPCO informed us that a “smart” meter was to go on the house that WAPF rents for office space in Washington, DC, we had our attorneys send a very strong letter forbidding them to install one. To this date, PEPCO has not attempted to install a “smart” meter at our office, even though DC regulations do not permit an opt-out.

Another focus of this issue is the upcoming review of the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans. This disastrous policy has caused untold suffering and chronic disease in this nation, especially in our children. They are applied in schools, daycare centers and the WIC program. We are pleased to present the excellent analysis by Adele Hite and Kimberly Hartke in this issue, and plan to follow up with a press release and publicity campaign.

It was great to see so many of you—including lots of newcomers—at Wise Traditions 2014, and we are already at work planning a great conference in Anaheim in 2015. See you there!

  1. It is so unfortunate that when posting a link to this issue of the magazine on facebook, what pops up is that it is available for Ipads, etc.

    Patricia: There are ways of using the iPads connected via Ethernet rather than WiFi; this is what I do. Just make sure all the wireless capabilities are shut off. I also use a stylus pen to not touch the screen, since the levels of magnetism are pretty high immediately next to the screen.

    But I definitely see your point.
