Very important topic! Thanks

Very important topic! Thanks to Laura Garzon Chica for addressing this urgent environmental health issue, and giving airtime to Josh Hart (, Dr. Joel Moskowitz, and Kevin Kunze (

I'd like to see a series of shows on this issue, to delve deeper into the dangers of wireless technology, and how it impacts communities. Every wireless transmission represents not only a carcinogenic exposure to the user of the technology, but to those who live near the cell towers used to transmit them.

The level of electrosmog in the cities has been increasing steadily with ever more antennas, and now with the 'Smart' meter mesh network has become almost impossible to avoid. Friends of mine, who have been electromagnetically injured and sensitized, have had to move into isolation to escape from severe and disabling health effects. They have essentially been toxically evicted from their communities.

This technology also adversely affects other species, with pets getting sick, plants dying near wireless meters, and bees disappearing from gardens they previously frequented.

Really, very important show. More, please!

After Joel Moskowitz

After Joel Moskowitz elaborates on the World Health Organization's seven year study's increased risk of brain cancer for cell phone users who have used their cell phones more than 10 years, the comment "that doesn't sound too good" to describe the serious increased risks almost sounds comical. thanks for bringing up this topic and having these speakers on your show. The common assumption is that the wireless radiation from cell phones is perfectly safe, and that's not true, it's a myth but the public simply doesn't know how unsafe these cellphones are.

Thank you for having these

Thank you for having these three knowledgeable and studied speakers on your program. They have touched upon a subject that is just now beginning to gain momentum in the mainstream media. It is imperative that the public know the hidden dangers in wireless devices, and that we all take precautions, let our objections be known to the corporations behind the lies, and work to educate the young people coming up in today's supersaturated tech world.

Josh Hart from

Josh Hart from is very articulate about the issues facing us with smart meters and the smart grid. I hope that you will continue to have shows on this topic - so much material and such a short show. I would be in favor of lengthening your show to and hour!
