Cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation are sources of Electromagnetic Radiation (aka “Electrosmog”). Exposure is biologically and environmentally harmful. It’s not just about cancer risk. Some develop “Microwave Sickness” – a federally recognized illness, as well as Electromagnetic Sensitivity (see 1, 2, 3, 4) – a federally recognized disability (see 1, 2). Many reports suggest that American embassy workers in China and Cuba were disabled by exposure too.
Ms. Barris has been continually denied accommodations for her condition due to lack of education with the general public on the issue and hopes to alleviate this situation for people like her who cannot tolerate the radiation from wireless device and infrastructure by bringing awareness to the issue. The US National Toxicology Programs 10 year $30,000,000 study found “clear evidence of statistically significant carcinogenic effects” yet the public is still largely unaware of this known toxin. Other studies show stroke, heart attack, kidney problems, neurological damage and lesser problems such as headache, loss of energy and ringing in the ears which if left unchecked can turn into bigger health problems. Ms. Barris also believes her cancer was due to her exposure to the 3G antennas on a rooftop near her home in Santa Monica. The fact that the US National Toxicology Program study outcome showed clear evidence of cancer and it is difficult to find areas of the world that are now not exposed to this radiation, leaves cancer survivors like Ms. Barris worried. She hopes to raise awareness to this problem with her campaign, which has real solutions for a society that is addicted to their smart phones and WIFI. Ms. Barris sees this as the challenge of her lifetime and is at the crux of her campaign.
If elected, Ms. Barris would seek support in Congress for the funding of solutions to this problem and would also begin requiring the Americans with Disabilities Act be adhered to and force accommodation on air planes which she says are now off limits to her due to the WIFI in the fuselage which is magnified by the metal enclosure and claims makes her so sick that she is unable to function for days after a single 2 hour flight.
Ms. Barris helped organize and was a volunteer in a first of its kind study showing her neurological symptoms when exposed to electromagnetic radiation on an fMRI. FMRI is purportedly the same procedure used to diagnose US Embassy workers in Cuba who were under sonic attack, later said to be an electromagnetic attack. Ms. Barris believes her neurological damage was caused by wireless radiation emitting devices and infrastructure.
Also of concern is the US Dept. of the Interior report stating birds, wildlife and foliage are dying due to ubiquitous cell tower radiation, as 5G is in the millimeter bandwidth, resonating with many insects exact size.
Experts have been warning that we should be reducing sources of Electrosmog – not increasing them. Unfortunately, the current “Race to 5G” dramatically increases them. 5G opposition is worldwide. Some cities and countries have already banned it. Doctors, scientists, engineers, and public advocates have asked President Trump for a moratorium on 5G (see 1, 2. 3).
Utility “Smart” Meters also create high levels of Electrosmog. Utility companies, their proponents and some environmental organizations and environmentalists– still endorse them anyway despite this AND all the other problems they cause including fires and explosions (see 1, 2, 3).
Best of luck to Ms. Barris!
