"They'll be in hotels," Gary realized. His access to areas of public accommodation will likely become even more limited.

Gary is now testing wireless chargers. He's found that some manuals warn people with cardiac pacemakers to keep at least nine inches from the charger. Some chargers--sold inexpensively on Amazon--claim FCC certification but do not appear in the FCC database of approved devices. And don't leave your purse near a wireless charger. It can erase the magnetic strip on a credit card or a camera. It can magnetize Rolex watch parts so the watch will not work.

And there we have less than two centuries of electronic developments on planet Earth.

Please be aware. For most of us, the days of using tools we can repair are over. More than ever, we need regulators who protect the public health. But EPA, OSHA, FDA, FCC and NTIA each have piecemeal authority and inadequate funding at best. Every person is woefully on their own in conducting research and limiting their EMR exposure.

Please: reconsider before you upgrade a device or a service. Inform pregnant women about the dangers of cell-phone use and Wi-Fi. Reconsider before you use a mobile device in a car, train, plane, elevator or public space. Don't download pictures or videos wirelessly. Get corded landlines restored. Turn Wi-Fi off every night for at least 12 hours until you get wired Internet access. Eliminate fluorescent lights and dimmer switches, which both put radiofrequency noise on 60-Hz wires. If you've got a transmitting utility meter on your home, get an analog one restored.

If you live in a community that recognizes that wireless devices can harm living creatures, consider a Community Rights ordinance, the kind that have been used in over 200 municipalities around the world to prevent fracking, GMOs, pesticides, industrial animal factories, and corporate ownership of public utilities. Community Rights ordinances nullify laws like the Telecommunications Act's Section 704, which specifically removes our inherent right to self-governance. You can learn more about Community Rights at and

By all means, inform your family, friends, neighbors, physicians, teachers and congressional representatives about electronic interference and the biological effects of EMR exposure.

By the way, Gary doesn't consider me a genius or an idiot. He calls me a troublemaker, which he defines as someone who asks questions and suggests we take a pause. He considers himself a troublemaker.

Does anyone here identify as a troublemaker?

Would you stand up?

Thank you very much.
