Michael Brownrigg, city council member in Burlingame, CA, a small neighbor of San Francisco, has 3 friends that died from brain cancer. He wanted to learn more about cell phones and brain cancer and the Mayor agreed to a presentation last evening.
The San Francisco Department of Environment made an excellent presentation with the help of the Environmental Working Group and the Environmental Health Trust. In fairness the CTIA, the wireless association, was allowed to present also. They sent a top V.P. from Washington D.C., Dane Snowden, who we had the “pleasure” of meeting in Maine last March and Dr. Ory, who was also in Maine. Another CTIA V.P., Mr. Keegan, was present but did not speak. We heard enough of him in San Francisco!
I am attaching the video – this should be of great interest to anyone who uses a cell phone or cares about democracy. Considering cell phones are ubiquitous this is an incredible piece and should be on 60 minutes. The cell phone presentation starts 32 minutes into the video. We consider this a victory for the good guys!
I was the last to speak. Unfortunately Mr. Snowden lost his composure after I spoke. I will wear that as a badge of honor.
I do hope you will consider watching this. Many of us are putting so much effort into this to save you and yours from the suffering so many are already enduring. Here is the link:
