Sick teachers worry parents, Mission BC Canada
For The Record. There are two large cellphone broadcast towers within, aprox, two city blocks of the Mission Hillside School.Could this be another Spain,France,Isreal situation in the making ??

I know people in the area of the school that complain of EMS symptoms,headaches,ringing ears,sleep disurbance,as well some very serious illness.Regards Robert

Sick teachers worry parents

By Ken Henry

The Mission School District is scrambling to assure concerned parents of Hillside elementary students that six teachers' illnesses - including three with breast cancer - have nothing to do with the school.

Hillside parents have been in a frenzy trying to figure out if the school is safe for their children - numerous parents have called the Fraser Health Authority, the Mission school board and the Times, questioning why teachers are falling ill. The three other teachers have respiratory problems.

Wendy Saint-Onge, whose child is entering Grade 2, is one of those worried parents. "As a concerned parent I want some answers before I send my kid back to school [on Sept. 2]," said Saint-Onge, adding that she likes the school and has never complained about it. Saint-Onge said everyone she knows in the Wharton Place and Forbes Street neighbourhoods is seeking answers. The "rumour mill", as Saint-Onge calls it, is so bad that posters are being distributed around Hillside neighbourhoods. "I don't know who put [the poster] out," she said. "I guess it shows a lot of [people] are concerned about this."

Guy Bonnefoy, secretary treasurer for the Mission School District, said the district has given both the Fraser Health Authority and the Workers' Compensation Board all the available facts and both organizations have said there is no reason for alarm. "I had a discussion with the Workers' Compensation Board [Wednesday morning] and . . . they don't believe there's any reason for any concern," said Bonnefoy. "Plus, [the] opinion of the medical health officer [at the FHA] is that there is currently no evidence to suggest that student safety is in any way compromised."

Bonnefoy said that parent concern has been "elevated to a level that is not warranted", although he "completely understands why parents want some answers. We will let parents know about the situation as soon as we have all the facts."

Dr. Andrew Larder, medical health officer for the FHA, said the health authority received so many calls from the public that the FHA contacted the school board for more details.

Based on the information Bonnefoy sent him on Tuesday Larder echoed school district comments, saying, "There was no evidence to suggest that student safety in any way was compromised." Larder did, however, admit that he was given "very few details" on the case. He said he was only given general comments about each of the six teachers' conditions. "I've dealt with schools where there have been environmental issues and [Hillside] is not consistent with those sorts of things," said Larder.

He added that there have been no reports of student illness, "which I would expect to see in a school that is a hazard."

But despite both the WCB's and FHA's findings, no carcinogen [cancer-causing] or other tests have been done to the school to officially deem it as safe.

However parents were reporting that trucks were parked out front of the school.

Bonnefoy said those were "maintenance crews, or general summer work. If there was something going on I'd know about it."

There was an air quality test "a year or a few years ago and that was fine from what I understand," said Bonnefoy, adding that the school district has been in touch with the cancer society to keep them informed of the situation.

For the safety of their children, parents like Yoshi Kawasaki would like scientific facts to back up claims the school is safe before sending their youngsters back. "It concerns me to the point where, [it's] only six now but how many more [cases] have not been reported?" said Kawasaki, who lives on Wharton Place about a block east of the school. Three of his children are scheduled to attend Hillside come Sept. 2, and two more will be there next year. "I would like to clear it up at a meeting or something," he said, adding that all of his neighbours are getting concerned too.

Kawasaki said he and his wife are "seriously considering" putting their kids in another school. "Other families are pulling their kids but we don't want to just pull [them out of school]," he said. "We like the school and the teachers but if there is something wrong with the school, yeah, we want to know about it."

Saint-Onge agreed. "In all my life I have never even remotely heard of a rumour of any school. These rumours don't just start for no reason," she said. "As of right now we are registering our son at a different school until this gets cleared up. "I need tests done to feel good about sending my son back."

But Bonnefoy said, "Before you can go off doing tests you have to have more facts. If you look at what WCB has said and what I indicated, the info they have is the same info we have . . . and they don't believe there's any concern." Bonnefoy said the WCB will be in touch with him in September to follow up.


Regarding the microwave hearing affect and the research by Allan Frey, 1962. Ithaca University, NY. USA.

His Studies demonstrate humans can hear the spoken word without the aid of a radio receiver when certain microwave radio frequencies, especially 1 Ghz, and pulsed at 16 Hz, are beamed directly at their brain!

Does this explain the reason why in my own personal studies regarding microwave transmissions from mobile phone antenna, that transmit at similar frequencies to Frey’s experiments, I have found people reportedly hearing voices in their homes, much like a normal radio station broadcast, but the puzzling bit is they hear these voices when there is no TV or radio switched on. Are they being subject to similar conditions to Frey’s experiments research and findings, from some unknown agency?

The reports I have had are appearing reliable. The people who hear these transmissions describe a wide variety of content coming from them. They have asked me if they are going mad, and stress to explain how much distress this phenomenon is causing them. However, after talking to them I think they are level headed.

They say in the transmissions they hear, that the American National Anthem is played constantly, hymns are sung, and then there is satanic chanting, wild laughing and primal screams! There is also an announcer who says: welcome to the Radio Hell! The announcer’s voice is always in a US accent. Some times there are people discussing present US and UK global policy. The speaker appears to be suggesting to the listener that there is nothing to worry about and that the UK government and US will come up with a solution that you will all agree with.

The people affected seem to think that there is some kind of autosuggestion or subliminal message being implanted into their subconscious when they hear these voices, as they tend to hear them and be more aware of them when they are dozing off to sleep. The latest clearest message to date was at 9.45am. Monday 18/8/03. It appeared to be Richard Branson speaking.

The Message went: "Now listen to me all you airline pilots. I want you all to come up to Southgate with me and run the best airline in the world, Virgin"! After the message, the announcer said: "There you are, Richard Branson looking for pilots"!

Now what the "hell" is going on here? Are people picking up normal radio station transmissions in their heads without radio receivers, or is something more sinister happening to them regarding autosuggestion and subliminal messaging?

As for Mr. Branson and Southgate, I would like to know what connections he may have with this named place. Also, has he placed this advert on a regular radio channel? What is Southgate? Is it an office, Airport, Hotel, or other establishment of his somewhere on this globe?

Cell Phone Convenience or 21st Century Plague?



If you want a more succinct explanation of how EM energy impacts humans, with more compelling evidence than is assembled anywhere else, go to for information about my book, BRAIN SPEED AND THE BODY ELECTRIC.

EM energy slows down the nervous system! While the health effects of this may be debatable, the effects upon cognitive function are not! It is now possible for anybody to measure this effect. For example, you will read slower with poorer comprehension, computation skills deterioriate, memory is not as good. You can also demonstrate a slowdown in reaction time--bad for drivers using cell phones, bad for athletes, actually bad for everybody.

Evidence is what people want. Evidence that relates to their lives. Evidence that is indisputable. The long technical explanation you provide in this message will interest scientists and specialists but not the average person.

You must win over the average person! BRAIN SPEED AND THE BODY ELECTRIC speaks to the average person in everyday language and shows people how to conduct simple tests that demonstrate beyond doubt that EM interference is bad for them in many ways.

Dr. Gorgun answers Dr. D. Parkinson

I did receive your message, thank you very much. I saw also the attachment. I agree with you. Some physical effects doesn't relive with the ayes or with other sences, but because of this reason human uses relivatores and the measurements systems. I couldn't understand very well what you want to explain to me. If you don't mind, kindly would you explain better.

If you want to explain to me which physical effects creates pathology, for this point I send to you a photocopy of the Norm CE (European technical standard) where you can see the list and the technical limits of the RF (See attachment: 8).

If you mean that living cells get harm from the RF, I agree with you, but you should also remember that, living cells also produces RF (7 MHz.)(See attachments: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9).

For not creating the harmfull RF non ionizan radiation for the living matters, instruments RF emission should be suitable for the living matters or should be used as shield for the protection of the living matters (See attachment: 10).

The real problem is not to create a shield for RF (it is already available) but insert this discovery in the use of every instrument. In this point all idealist peoples agree, but they are not able to realise this action, because some benefit groups may stop the realisation of this good action of the idealist people. Since 33 years I have been working on this matter and unfortunately according to my personal expriences, any kind of the good thinking for the humanity was stopped by them. Mr. K. Rudolph is doing the Nobel work and exactly I believe him.

In these days he trys to open the way for the ''GORGUN SHIELD''. I am greatful to him. In one of the my letters I wrote to him that, I still have very little hope in the sincere collaboration of the human beings, because this benefit groups stop every good action of the idealist persons. If he can open the way for the ''GORGUN SHIELD'', I will walk with him on this way of the struggle. I hope he gets success.

Please feel free to write to me. I send to you 27 attachments.

With my best regards.

The Wingspread summit: Toxic Chemicals and Intellectual Disabilities
"Scientific evidence shows that learning, developmental, or behavioral disabilities are on the rise in the United States. This rise in disabilities is paralleled by the increase in the number of chemicals being manufactured and used today."

August 18, 2003 Contact: Anna Prabhala, 202-387-1968, Ext 212


Disability and environmental experts meet to discuss current scientific knowledge and chart prevention strategies

Washington, DC (August 18, 2003)-We know a great deal about the environment and developmental disabilities, but surprisingly, there's much more we don't know-about how chemicals and toxins present in the air we breathe and the food we eat contribute to the occurrence of intellectual disabilities. We know even less about the effects of toxic
exposure on the lives of the people who currently live with an intellectual disability. At present, 1 in every 50 Americans lives with mental retardation. That's why the American Association on Mental Retardation (AAMR) brought together a group of concerned environmental and disability experts, and self-advocates from July 22-24 at the
historic Wingspread conference center in Racine, Wisconsin, to find answers to one critical concern: how do we reduce the unnecessary occurrence of mental retardation and related disabilities caused by environmental toxins and pollutants?

Doreen Croser, Executive Director of AAMR explains the significance of Pollutants, Toxic Chemicals and Mental Retardation: A National Summit-"AAMR firmly believes that dignity, service, and support must be afforded to every person with mental retardation, and the Association is also committed to preventing the unnecessary occurrence of this disability, given its staggering emotional impact on families and health costs to society. The Wingspread summit helped catalyze collaborations between the environmental and the developmental disability networks, and create a shared national agenda regarding known and suspected neurotoxicants."

Environmental pollutants and mental retardation is a serious public concern for several reasons. Scientific evidence shows that learning, developmental, or behavioral disabilities are on the rise in the United States. This rise in disabilities is paralleled by the increase in the number of chemicals being manufactured and used today.

Since the petrochemical industry began around World War II, approximately 80,000 new synthetic chemicals have been approved for use and of the 15,000 most commonly found chemicals today, the vast majority have not been tested individually for human health impacts and none have been tested in combination. It is a proven fact that environmental factors, including chemicals and nutrition significantly affect brain development. However, while the impacts of lead, mercury, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), alcohol, and smoking on mental retardation and related developmental disabilities have been addressed, there is very little information on most chemicals. Further, most industrial chemicals to which people are regularly exposed from consumer products or as environmental contaminants have not undergone neurodevelopmental testing.

Elise Miller, Executive Director of the Institute for Children's Environment Health points out, "Mental retardation and other developmental disabilities are widespread and given what we know about the impact of toxic chemicals on brain development, it is time we conduct more research on environmental contributors to these neurological problems and implement effective public policy procedures to prevent exposures in the first place."

Apart from industrial chemicals, the AAMR Wingspread summit also featured candid discussions on pesticides and current federal regulations, and how the build up of mercury, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dioxins, flame retardants and other toxic chemicals in fish and other seafood affect current toxicity levels in the environment and the incidence of developmental disabilities.

Later this year, AAMR will publish a report on the Wingspread summit highlighting a national research and policy vision for a world free of toxins and pollutants. The report will also contain proceedings from the summit and papers presented. To receive a copy of the Wingspread report upon publication, email your request to

The Wingspread summit was sponsored by The John Merck Fund and the Johnson Foundation. The summit was also supported by the Arc of the United States Research Fund and the Association of University Centers on Disabilities.

Founded in 1876, the mission of AAMR is to promote progressive policies, sound research, effective practices, and universal human rights for people with intellectual disabilities. To find out more, visit .
