Barrie Trower, former Cold War spy debriefer and academic,
warned members of the Irish Doctors Environmental Association
(IDEA) at its Annual General Meeting on 20 April 2013 in Dublin
about the dangers of microwave based communications systems.
Expert tells doctors of impending tragedy from EMF radiation as
health of nations laid waste by technology
Barrie Trower lives in a world different to the rest of us. His
world is every bit as dangerous as anything Tolkien could have
dreamed up and with each passing day inches closer to engulf us.
Very occasionally he surfaces to warn us but returns back to his
world largely ignored.
While his words are reasoned and motivational - much like Tolkein's
wizard, Gandalf - Trower is stoically centered.
He sat alone for more than an hour
waiting to address the annual general meeting of the Irish Doctors
Environmental Association (IDEA) amid stacked chairs against the
stark white walls between two tall Georgian windows with only a
glass of water molecules to bring clarity before speaking to the
A lecturer in Advanced Physics at South Dartmoor College and living
in a village in rural Devon - not unlike Tolkein's beloved Shires -
Trower has travelled to 27 countries around the world explaining the
unseen wonders of physics and the perilous ways mankind is
commercially exploiting the invisible for profit and political
From the outset, Trower is courageous.
Here is a truth-teller, not
just an ordinary whistleblower, but a man who came out of retirement
with a warning for all humanity.
"I'll tell you very briefly where
I'm coming from very before I start," began Trower,
"In 1959 I studied my first paper on
microwaves for my entry examination into the military. I studied
all aspects of microwaves in the military - radar, health
Microwaves then were being used, as
they are today, as stealth weapons. Stealth weapons specifically
to cause severe neurological and physiological damage. There
never, ever was any safe level of microwave radiation."
Trower began his career with the British
Royal Navy before his peacetime duties with the Secret Service.
addition to his experience he is uniquely qualified to discuss
microwaves due to education with a degree in physics, a second
degree in research, as well as a teaching diploma in physiology.
Common sense tells us electricity is dangerous. Less generally known
are the principles surrounding magnetism which, according to experts
like Davis and Rawls in their book Magnetism on Its Effects on the
Living System, can be equally dangerous.
Combine the two principles, electricity
and magnetism, into
electro-magnetic frequencies (EMF) and there is
a recipe for untold misery, pain, death and destruction.
Electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) are
the signals used in modern communications systems, from the billions
of cell phones and masts that service them to the pulsed signals of
WiMAX and Tetra which are stronger still.
Although Trower came to the subject late, the Russians had been
studying microwaves from as early as 1920, according to Czech writer
Mojmir Babacek, founder of the International Movement Against
Manipulation of Central Nervous System.
Babacek told El Spectador that Russia
was well advanced in the 50's investigating phenomena such as
telepathy, telekinesis and clairvoyance, and that during the 60's
and 70's there existed a real arms race between Russia and the U.S.
in this area which supports Trower's explanation of debriefing
victims for the British military - cold war spies - following their
microwave radiation exposure.
And as recently as April 2013, Russian
President Vladimir Putin admitted that Russia plans to ramp
up its arsenal with the development of "psychotronic"
"Following my time in the military -
we're into the cold war here - and those of you who remember the
Cold War it was a very, very tense time for the world, I can
specifically remember two occasions when we were within one
second of total global nuclear war.
A part of my job when I left the
military because I had microwave knowledge, and they were being
used as weapons, was to question captured spies or agents which
I did for eleven years and in my defense and, might I please
say, that the program, run by Sir William Melville, I never used
pain, humiliation embarrassment, drugs, hypnosis, nothing.
I treated the ladies and gentlemen
as I would talk to you. It was nothing more than a conversation
over a cup of coffee."
William Melville is the real 'M', founding
father of MI-5 and the inspiration for Ian Fleming's character in
James Bond books and films.
Trower explained that during the Cold War, less than 20 years after
the death of
Nikola Tesla, the genius of electricity, and less
than 15 years after the end of WWII, governments were already
researching the effects of pulsed microwave signals in the 1960's.
"I gathered the information," he
said, "because different pulsed systems were being used to cause
different neurological and physiological damage."
As a former insider Trower is giving
first hand fact-based evidence that microwave signals and radiation
cause damage to living organisms and the built environment.
Furthermore he is living testimony that governments have used that
evidence to inflict pain and suffering on their opponents.
Trower claims that there is no defense against a microwave assault
and that by alternating pleasure and pain frequencies broadcast from
a van parked nearby,
"anyone can be broken in 30 hours."
His statement is backed up by Drs. P.D.
Whissell and M.A. Persinger of Laurentian University, Ontario, who
said in a 2007 paper, that,
"experiments showed a role of
opiates in simple and pulsed EL-EMF response, but opiate-like
effects induced by VHF-MF and microwave (MW) field also exist
and have been characterized for more than a decade."2
Trower's testimony flies in the face of
"Product Defense Consultant" Dr. William H. Bailey, advisor
to the Irish government, power companies in Nevada and British
Columbia as well as companies like Toyota that experience
electromagnetic interference with their services or manufactured
Shortly after embarking on a career in education, Trower explained
that he was contacted by a police authority in the U.K. to review
the literature and explain the implications of the proposed switch
to a new communications system using Tetra technology - a microwave
signal developed by the Motorola Corporation, a major U.S. military
contractor based outside of Chicago, Illinois.
"That resulted in me being
commissioned to write the first safety report on the Tetra
system for the emergency services which I condemned," said
"Nine years later I was approached
by another police union with the increased cancers and other
neurological problems, saying would I update my report which I
Before launching into proof that low
level microwave radiation causes disease and death, Trower said that
he has never charged for his public engagements because once you
accept money you can be told what to say and, secondly, even the
poorest can afford to hear his message.
The idealism of Trower's position is
growing around the world against what is becoming increasingly the
most powerful industry on the planet.
While her husband has endorsed the
electromagnetic Smart Meter, Michelle Obama, quietly
contacted Trower for information through an agent in New York. After
all, she has two daughters to protect.
The hand that rocks the cradle may, yet
"Let's deal with the most important
question first," he said as he stood behind a pile of documents
neatly grouped and tied with string.
"With low level microwaves, and
lower level is actually more dangerous than a high level, with
low level microwaves is there any proof? Let's deal with the
proof argument first.
More than you would probably imagine
- there are 8,300 military papers proving microwaves cause
severe neurological and physiological damage.
There are seven high court cases now
against the industry showing that they will cause this. There
are 12 epidemiological studies. There are another 19 legal
judgments around the world - by mayors, magistrates or people
who have the ability to make a legal judgment.
The industry themselves, this is
what they say about the microwaves that children are walking
Trower quoted a document prepared by the
German Ecolog Institut on behalf of the TMobile holding
company for Deutsche Telecom with its estimated 150 million
Reading from Section 7 of the document,
Trower bridged direct quotes from the Ecolog study with his own
"These are their actual words.
'It can be concluded that
electromagnetic fields used in the mobile telecoms range do
play a role in
the development of cancer'...
On the cellular level, a multitude
of studies found these waves can induce the cancer initiation,
cancer promotion agents to act in the body.
'DNA synthesis and repair
mechanisms' for continuous or pulsed fields can influence or
directly damage the DNA.'" 3
Trower referenced the ruling of an
Italian court against the microwave industry.
"I had to read this a few times just
to believe it... it was in the transcript of the judgment
against the industry for cancer, and it actually states that if
you use a cell phone five to six hours a day for 10-12 years
you are more likely to develop ipsilateral cancer, that is from
the direction of the source of the radiation, you are more
likely to develop ipsilateral cancer than the survivors of the
atomic bomb in Japan in 1945.
There is no doubt microwaves are
causing cancer, neurological and physiological damage. No
doubt." said Trower.
If microwave radiation is causing so
much damage, why is the public so unaware of the dangers?
Before answering the question, Trower
again lists the effects from still more sources - some top secret:
"Concerning low level microwaves, we can
change behavior of cells, tissue... Whole organisms have a
six times higher fetal mortality rate, birth defects and
induce malignant tumors in human cells."
"Students (scientists) will be familiar with
current knowledge, ie. cancer, memory, brain function damage
to the eye, skin, birth defects from low level microwave
TOP SECRET: Naval Medical
Research Institute: Biological and Clinical Manifestations
Attributed to Microwave Radiation (Low-Level) which lists
2,000 medical references with the main paper, Altered
Menstrual and Fetal Development.
TOP SECRET: World Health
Organization (W.H.O.), 1973. Biological Effects: Health and
Excess Mortality from Artificial Irradiation of Radio
Frequency, Microwave Radiation.
The paper was the result of
a symposium held in Warsaw and has been referred to by
experts such as Dr. Magda Havas, Trent University, Canada,
Henry Lai, of the University of Washington and by the
Seletun Declaration signed by Prof. Olle Johansson, of the
Karolinska Institute, among others.
"The damage caused by microwave radiation is irrefutable," says
Trower, "There never is any doubt. There never was."
In reference to the Warsaw document,
Trower held it high, telling the audience,
"Again, top secret paper. This is a
surprise. This is actually from the World Health Organization
and it says Biological Effects: Health and Excess Mortality from
Artificial Irradiation of Radio Frequency, Microwave Radiation.
They list pages upon pages of ill
effects and when the W.H.O published this it was stamped Top
Secret and hasn't seen the light of day since."
As it emerges from the shadows of
secrecy, the document is becoming a cornerstone of the global
reaction to microwave radiation, giving credence to the fact that
dangers to human and animal health were established more than 40
years ago and that the evidence has been suppressed.
In a sworn affidavit to the State of
Oregon, Trower told the court that health effects from microwave
radiation had been noted as early as 1932 when it was called "radiowave
A 2006 Freedom of Information request by Donald Friedman of Napa,
California 4 supports Trower implicitly.
The buried document revealed
both the theory and practice behind inducing neurological events
from subjects "hearing things" - the Frey Effect - to suffering
epileptic seizures of varying severity.5
The U.S. Army document,
Selected Non Lethal Weapons, which notes that human beings have been
used as guinea pigs and the physical effects are a reality, states:
"Human subjects listened to very
high levels of low-frequency noise and infrasound...
Two minute duration as high as 140
to 155 dB produced a range of effects from mild discomfort to
severe pressure sensations, nausea, gagging, and giddiness.
Effects also included blurred vision and visual field
distortions in some exposure exposure conditions..."
Naturally, by virtue of the fact that
Friedman had to officially request the document and that it was
originally labeled "Secret Noforn" until it was stamped unclassified
clearly indicates that information is being suppressed and kept well
away from public scrutiny.
The label "SECRET NOFORN" means
documents are designed to never be shown to non-US citizens.
According to Trower the reason is simple.
"The question is, 'Why?' Why has all
of this damage which is known to be caused to children, why is
it being suppressed? And the answer is here," said Trower,
holding before him yet another document.
"And I have said this was incredibly top secret. It is from the
United States Defense Intelligence Agency.
It's dated 1971 and basically they
list all of the illnesses which you can expect at this time from
low level radiation including blood-brain barrier damage but it
is the first three lines which I think are the most dangerous
lines since the declaration of war and it's certainly going to
cause more casualties...
Those three lines of text from the
U.S. Naval Centre are telling indeed: 'If the governments of the
more advanced nations of the West are strict in enforcement of
stringent exposure standards, there could be unfavorable effects
on industrial output and military effects.'"6
The possibility/probability of costly
law suits moved Swiss Re to refuse insurance to companies using

savaged by the legal team representing FortisBC during hearings in
British Columbia in March 2013 to consider deployment of the
contentious Smart Meter. The contentious William Bailey, naturally
enough, testified on behalf of the industry.
Blame for the paucity of public safety standards rests with the U.S.
government, claims Trower.
"The United States government are
advising Western governments, namely us, to have such a relaxed
safety level that the industry can never be taken to court," he
"They also say that if we don't it
will have a disastrous effect on industrial profit and, of
course, line them up for law suits. Following this, if the
American government says 'Jump', the English government says,
Trower explained that the English
government adopted a six-minute heating effect as the official
standard and the rest of the world followed suit. There is, however,
ample evidence of global financial interests bringing enormous
pressure to bear. Names like Motorola.
Westinghouse, JPMorgan and Rockefeller
litter the resume of Nikola Tesla, the undisputed pioneering genius
in the application of electricity and magnetism.
Indeed, it was
Tesla himself who alerted President Franklin Roosevelt of the theory
behind creation of a death ray to end WWII and all wars while a
friend petitioned Eleanor Roosevelt for financial help for the
inventor who died penniless in January 1943.
Trower's assertion regarding the arbitrary adoption of the heating
or so-called "Thermal Effect" caused by microwaves was expressed as
early as 1981 by the World Health Organization.
Titled Environmental Health Criteria
16, Radiofrequency and Microwaves, the report notes,
"Thermal mechanisms seem wholly
inadequate to account for the results of studies indicating that
cerebral tissue, exposed to weak electromagnetic fields,
responds only over a limited range of intensities and modulation
frequencies of the RF carrier field.
There appears to be evidence for
both amplitude and modulation frequency windows, outside which
effects are not observed."7
"And that is still the only standard today," said Trower, "six
minutes of heating. In other words, providing you don't feel too
warm, after six minutes of being near a transmitter or on the
phone or whatever, it is deemed safe, that is it.
That is the only safety level and
today in the U.K. and the United States they'll have got away
In Canada, Dr. Magda Havas,8
of Trent University, Ontario, forced admission from health
authorities that while they say they are using standards below the
Thermal Effect, they are at wide variance with practice.
In February 2013, Havas reported:
"I just returned from a hearing in
Montreal in front of the Superior Court of Quebec where Health
Canada scientist, James McNamee, admitted that the Safety Code 6
guideline for microwave radiation (which includes radiation from
most of the devices we are concerned about like mobile phones,
cell phone antennas, Wi-Fi, wireless toys and baby monitors,
smart meters etc.) is based ONLY on preventing a heating effect!
Let me state that again. Health
Canada admits that Safety Code 6 for frequencies between 100 kHz
and 300 GHz are based ONLY on heating."
Trower is right again and Dr. Havas

Dublin about the dangers of microwave
This part of his
presentation mentions the risks of Wi-Fi to
children and the disappearance of bees.
Expert tells doctors of impending tragedy
from EMF radiation as health of nations laid
waste by technology
Limits don't protect
The problem with heating standards, if they can be called standards
at all - except in a microwave oven - is the vulnerability of
Tolerance is a more appropriate term.
"Children are much more vulnerable
than adults," says Trower, "for two reasons: one, they have a
higher water content in the body which means they absorb around
10 times more radiation than adults and the other is that the
mitochondrial DNA suffers 10 times more stress than other bodily
If you look at the child, the child
is taking a 20-fold increase in danger than adults. This is also
before we get onto their size. They also absorb more radiation
because they are nearer the size of the wavelength and they act
In a court deposition presented in
Portland, Oregon in 2011, Trower explained the phenomenon of
children as aerials.
"Children act like antennas and
absorb more radiation than adults because they are smaller, and
their very dimensions approximate the deployment's wavelength."
As Trower explained it in Oregon,
"A basic receiving antenna can be
thought of as an apparatus that converts electromagnetic waves
into electrical current. It turns out that the human body is
also a very effective antenna over a broad frequency range.
As an electrical conductor, when
exposed to electromagnetic fields, it behaves as an antenna with
a frequency resonance determined by various factors including
height, posture, etc.
Children are not merely small adults. They are physiologically
and neurologically immature; their systems have not yet formed.
Microwave radiation alters the blood-brain barrier so that
toxins leak into the brain.
This can cause neurologic and
psychological amongst many other problems more easily in
children. A child's immune system, which fights off infection,
takes 18 years to develop.
Additionally, 122 layers of protein
- myelin - insulate the electrically generated signals used by
the nervous system to control muscles and organs. These layers
of protein take 22 years to develop. MW radiation has been shown
to affect protein synthesis.
This could lead to muscular
dystrophy-like symptoms in later life."
Trower's greatest concern about children
is the fact that the blood-brain barrier in the human brain does not
completely develop until the age of 18 months.
"The blood brain barrier has been
known to enlarge and let toxins in and out of the brain," he
"That takes 18 months before it is
even made. Similarly the myelin sheet protein synthesis is known
to be interfered with as well as the marrow within the bone
which has a high water content."
"I want to talk at length about one
particular problem which I believe is very, very important,"
said Trower, asking the audience to imagine themselves as young
girls sitting at their school desks being irradiated by Wi-Fi,
laptops and electronic tablet textbooks.
"The problem with children and I
think it is the most important question or topic now to deal
with microwaves," he explained "With all of the research papers,
the first thing that springs to mind (and I've already read
them) is birth defects and we're looking, not just in humans,
but right across the mammalian species, right across the planet.
To explain this I need to keep it
simple for myself. I would like you to imagine, please, that you
are all five years old and you are all girls and you're sitting
in a classroom and a Wi-Fi is plunked in front of you...
"The Wi-Fi is transmitting as is the router on the wall. Now the
Wi-Fi is transmitting generally through your ovaries and you
have around 400,000 ovarian follicles - not fully developed -
They are being irradiated. Let's
move the clock forward to the point where you are now 18. You
have been through many years of having your ovaries irradiated.
And let's say now you are 18 and you are pregnant and I have
taught many pregnant students.
In the first 100 days of your embryo the embryo is developing
its own ovarian follicles. By 100 days, as you will probably
know, they are virtually formed" said Trower.
The ovarian follicles of the 18-year-old
have been damaged and this damage is passed down to her daughter and
In short, the stage is being set for a
catastrophe unseen before in human history.
"They have no defense mechanism at
all against microwaves," said Trower.
"There is no Protein 53 which are
four protein structures. There is no nuclear core complex. Those
are defense structures we have developed through evolution to
protect us against electric storms when we were living in caves.
They have nothing. So the ovarian
follicles of the embryo and the mother may not even know she's
pregnant at this stage - the ovarian follicles have no defense
mechanism - and what we are looking at is when your child is
born, which may or may not have genetic damage, it is that
child's birth where the real problem is going to come out.
And we are already seeing this with
other mammalian species and if you're wondering how many people
are going to be involved - there is only one paper I know of in
the world written by a professor, oddly enough, by an advisor
with the W.H.O. and he found when women were being deliberately
microwaved the rate of stillbirth, miscarriage, genetically
damaged children was 57.7 percent and this was at a level of
radiation lower than a child would get in a classroom with 20
wi-fis (desktop units).
We know a minimum of 57 percent. Now that's the good news."
The mitochondrial cells are where the
cell takes in nutrients, breaks it down to create energy at the
Thus, if the mitochondrial cells are
damaged, the cell cannot function properly. Logically, when this
occurs in the cells of ovarian follicles, eggs will not be healthy
or even produced. At a personal level, infertility is unfortunate.
At a social level, where a country needs healthy workers to prosper,
damaged embryos can lead to widespread social problems.
On a global scale, the consequences can
Trower is an academic who shies away from politics. He deals in
Trower's assertions are, however, supported by sound science from
researchers such as Prof. Olle Johansson at the Karolinska
Institute in Stockholm who posits that after five generations,
laboratory animals became infertile.
As for DNA damage, Dr. Dimitris
Panagopoulos at the University of Athens proved DNA damage to
annoying creatures such as fruit flies. In a recent paper,
... external EMFs of
varying/alternating nature, modulated and pulsed fields such as
those associated with modern wireless telecommunications or
produced by power lines, would not be expected to have
Rather as demonstrated in the present
chapter, these can be expected to be detrimental even at intensities
thousands or even millions of times smaller than those of the
current exposure limits.
Ways of direct and indirect
electromagnetic interaction between environmental fields and living
systems are described in the present chapter.
"The bad news, as most of you will
know," said Trower, "is that the mitochondrial DNA is
irreparable. So what we're saying to your children is if we
damage your mitochondrial DNA it is their children and their
children and their children.
As long as there is a female line
you will have this genetic damage. So, by putting Wi-Fi in
school classrooms, what you're actually doing is sentencing 57
percent of your children to some form of birth defect forever.
This is where the joke stops. It
isn't a decision we have the right to make."
Ireland's Minister for Education and
Skills, Ruairi Quinn, T.D., disagrees.
An architect and town planner, Quinn was
quoted in February, 2013 by Breakingnews, i.e., saying,
"All of our (European Union)
classrooms, right across the 27, soon to be 28 member states,
have to embrace that technology because the rest of the world is
doing so and we have to do so as well. It won't change education
per se, but it will change the way in which we do education."
Mr. Quinn was proved wrong a month later
when the French Assemblée Nationale voted to keep radiofrequency
electromagnetic fields away from schools.
As part of an amendment to the bill for
the 'rebuilding the schools of the Republic', MPs voted to promote
wired Ethernet connections in schools and not Wi-Fi, supporting the
precautionary principle and protecting children's health.10
In addition to France, the Public Health Department of Salzburg has
warned that Wi-Fi should not be put in schools or nurseries.
The Austrian Medical Association is
lobbying against the deployment of Wi-Fi in schools. In a letter to
the parents of Salzburg, Dr. Gerd Oberfeld, who addressed the
Irish Doctors Environmental Association two years ago, said,
"Based on first empirical evidence
from sensitive people, the signal seems to be 'very biologically
active' The symptoms seen so far are the same seen in base
difficulty, restlessness, memory problems etc.
The official advice of the Public
Health Department of the Salzburg Region is not to use WLAN and
DECT in School or Kindergardens."
WLAN is an acronym for Wireless Local
Area Network or the ubiquitous Wi-Fi proposed for Irish schools and
DECT stands for Digital European Cordless Telecommunications, the
wireless phones found in homes and offices.
In Germany, too, the Bavarian Parliament
has recommended that no schools in the province use wireless LAN
(Local Area Network) networks. The Frankfurt City government said
that it would not install Wi-Fi in its schools until it had been
shown to be harmless.
From Russia, Prof. Yury Grigoriev, a member of the WHO
International Advisory Committee on EMF and Health, said,
"The short-term and long-term
potential consequences for society from exposing children to
microwave radiation from cellular communication devices must be
immediately acknowledged globally, and responsibly addressed."11
In North America, David Morrison took
court action to block wireless in schools in Oregon, he explained,
"I brought a federal law suit
against the school board of Portland OR. for installing Wi-Fi in
The suit was based on 14th
amendment rights to a safe environment for my daughter's
education. My research led me to Barrie and he generously agreed
to be a witness in our action.
As a result we traveled to London to
meet him for depositions and at another time spent three days
interviewing him. The suit has been defined by the judge as a
complaint against the FCC and not suitable for the courts. Of
course it was an easy out for the judge.
We are now preparing an action to reignite the case."
Support for Trower and a growing number
of experts is growing around the world.
It is at this point that Trower issues his first challenge - one
that has never been taken up anywhere he has spoken, whether on
television or at public meetings.
"Now I have been right around the
world lecturing and in every country in the last however many
years," he said.
"When I appear on television or
radio I make a challenge and I say what I want. I want this
country's top scientists, government scientists, industry
scientists, I don't care how many there are... I want them to
humiliate me live, on air, and would they please come and do it.
I have one question, just one question.
What is the safe level of microwave
irradiation for the ovarian follicles of an embryo?
Drug companies can tell you if they
have produced a drug for a child but to date in all of the years
in every country not one person will meet me live on television
and tell me, not one And the reason is there isn't one. I know
there isn't one because there cannot be. There isn't one.
My reaction is, well, Why are we
putting Wi-Fi in schools? Simple as that."
Trower relentlessly throws out statistics. When transmitters went up
there were 200 cancer clusters in schools. The Council of Europe is
recommending wired systems in schools.
Eight other countries are negotiating or
taking Wi-Fi out of schools.
"Unicef, a charity, the children's
charity that I think is beyond reproach," noted Trower, "they
did their own survey research for children and they found there
was an 85 percent increase in central nervous system disorders,
a 36 percent increase in epilepsy, 11 percent in psychiatric
problems, 82 percent in blood/immune disorders in children and
risk to the fetus," he said.
"Recent news came in within the last
few days, how big a part I played in this I don't know, but I
have been in touch with various people over there, but 60,000
pediatricians in the U.S. have petitioned Congress to take Wi-Fi
out of schools. 60,000.
That is not a small body of
knowledge. If you add that to the 40,000 similar bodies who
signed the Freiberger agreement - hospital consultants and
people like yourselves - we have 100,000 of the most educated
professionals in the world - probably the most educated
professionals in the world - 100,000 saying, 'Protect our
children and get Wi-Fi out of schools'."
"In China, parotid cancer from the cell phone - up 3,000
percent. Other countries are now listing huge increases in
childhood brain tumours," said Trower.
"They are actually saying it is down
to cell phones. Neurologically, and it is published here in the
Journal of Neurological Science, on tens of thousands of
children explaining why low level microwaves are causing all of
the neurological problems they are in children.
If you think of some of the
chemicals, just a few of them, whizzing around the brain,
anandimide, encephalin, orexin, the balance between the frontal
cortex and the amygdala, the frontal cortex and the ventral
paradigm if you look at those and I'm going down from the
morphine substitutes, the marijuanas, the severe hunger, the
severe hopelessness and the severe anger just with those
"The current used by that part of the brain to release those
chemicals into the brain is around 2 milliamps.
Under certain conditions, ordinary
everyday conditions, that can be increased 17-fold by
microwaves. 17-fold. It's not surprising when you have
neurological papers saying it's causing this or it's causing
this or this or this. We know it's going to because it's been
used in stealth warfare to do this.
So we know it but it can be
increased 17-fold under normal, everyday household conditions."
Trower displays photographs of a woman
who carried her cell phone in her bra. He admitted that one woman
suffering a breast tumor does not prove the cause of her tumor was
where she placed her cell phone.
"But," noted Trower, "I have on a
disc in here, I have 45 peer reviewed research studies showing
that the breast tissue is particularly sensitive to microwave
Women suffer more than men because
they have 13 circadian rhythms/frequencies in their bodies in
which microwaves interact with that men don't have.
They have much more complex
hormones, again which are more susceptible to women so women do
suffer more than men and obviously girls more more than boys."
It is relevant to note that University
College in Dublin hosted a series of seminars supported by the Irish
Cancer Society to address the issue of female breast cancer in
The issue of microwave radiation was not
included in the the group's focus, however, psychotherapy was.
It is also relevant that the Irish
Cancer Society is heavily supported by the microwave industry.
In addition to the intentional suppression of evidence, there is the
contentious issue posed by recognition of the Thermal Effect and
standards issued by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing
Radiation Protection (ICNIRP).
It is a high-sounding title which wreaks
of Orwellian Newspeak.
"Some of the countries I have been
to have asked where can we go from here? Can we actually fight
the industry? The answer is, 'Yes'," said Trower.
"Generally what I find when I talk
to the people involved in the countries, generally they have
been lied to.
And if you have been lied to, you
have obviously, through barristers and people, a recourse and
one of the things that have been thrown in my face right around
the world is what they call call the ICNIRP certificate..."
ICNIRP was ostensibly established to set
standards for public protection under the voluntary Precautionary
"When we go to these countries they
say, 'Ha' six minutes of heating, but that is not true and this
is where the lie comes in. Generally the industry goes to a
school or a body and say the levels are up here and we're down
here and everything is okay.
That is actually not true and I have
fought two international cases on this. My first question when I
have this thrown in my face is, 'Have you read it?' (ICNIRP
guidelines) and to date, again around the world, I have never
met a single person who's read the guidelines they are throwing
in my face.
Well, I have," said Trower.
Again citing official documentation,
Trower chokes them with their own admissions.
"Here," he said, "on page 545 it
says, for example, some children, the elderly and chronically
ill people might have a lower tolerance for the radiation than
the rest of the population.
They need separate guidelines and
they go on to say, even under those guidelines, there will be
other people which they call sensitive individuals who need,
again, separate guidelines. In other words, the
And it goes on... Page 546... this
is the bit they don't like, it says that decision-makers should
read current scientific literature and set an exposure level at
a tolerance lower than what is known to be causing illness and
that is not the ICNIRP level which is up there. In other words
you should set a safety level lower than what is known to be
causing illness and they don't do that."
The international battle between the
Thermal Effect advocates and those pressing for stricter guidelines
and regulations has become heated in Canada where Health Canada
proposed that Canadians are protected by vaunted and violated Safety
Code 6 Guidelines.
The debate exploded when it was learned that those guideline are
also based on the Thermal Effect.
Jerry Flynn, a former military
man like Trower, offers parallel evidence. Flynn, too, is
challenging the Canadian government and Dr. David Butler-Jones,
chief Public Health Officer of Canada's Public Health Agency.
Flynn, a retired Canadian Armed Forces captain, spent 22 of his
26-years-and-a-day years service in Electronic (EW) and Radio
He spent two years as Executive Officer
& Operations Officer at an ultra-sensitive radio station directly
employing 200-plus specially-trained radio operators and technicians
and another two years' National Defense Headquarters, in the
Directorate of Electronic Warfare, as the Staff Officer EW for
Canada's only Army EW Squadron.
He has conducted Electronic Warfare at
sea with the Royal Canadian Navy and on land with NATO army units.
Trower, Flynn and the former SAS member Victor Nixon who died
last year, age 59, in Idaho, are just three military men to step
forward and challenge government.
Like Trower and Nixon - each working
from separate perspectives and unknown to each other, they challenge
Flynn is challenging the health
authorities in Canada.
"I would like Dr. Butler-Jones to
answer for me, please - in unambiguous language - how Health
Canada can continue telling the public that they are protected
by Safety Code 6 when Canada's own internationally respected and
independent National Research Council (who are also based in
Ottawa but report to Industry Canada), the Council of Europe (47
countries, 800 million people) and the Russian Federation all
say Canada's Exposure Limits - being based solely on thermal
effects of EMR/RFR - are amongst the highest, i.e., most
dangerous in the world!
I would appreciate an
acknowledgement of receipt from Dr. Butler- Jones, please," said
For military men to step forward to
defend themselves and their people against the actions of the
governments they served is a remarkable act of courage.
Trower, Flynn and Nixon - all military men - raise the Roman poet,
"Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?"
- "Who will
guard the guards themselves?"
Indeed, who is protecting the military
and the police who are using Tetra.
Why Bees Can't
Nearly imperceptively, Trower is building a case.
From his personal history to scientific
evidence of experimentation on humans - forbidden by international
agreement in the post-WWII Nuremberg Code, he moves to the complex -
perhaps purposely so - issue of
the disappearance of bees.
"Obviously, it's not just people,"
explained Trower, "there are papers here we are looking at -
birth problems and deformities researched by government
veterinary clinics and we have something called the Glastonbury
Festival in England.
Twice I've been the guest speaker
for the Glastonbury Festival and I spoke to university
professors who are beekeepers and I cited 14 references as to
why the bee cannot survive in microwaves - or any other flying
insects. We have birds are affected and it has appeared in
Nature for the scientists here it's the cryptochrome mechanism
in the brain.
There have been further state
government studies in cattle with birth defects - horses are
particularly vulnerable to everything I've spoken of, whales,
and there is a list here, cats, dogs, hamsters and they cite
immune system birth problems, just about every animal there is
on the planet is going to be affected which isn't surprising
because, if you think about it, at the cellular level when you
get down to the DNA and the four bases, we are really all the
And if you're going to affect human
cells you're going to affect tree cells, buttercup cells, even
germ cells," he said.
"Unfortunately, the situation with the bees is a page out of the
playbook that we deal with all the time with the mobile phone
industry," said George Carlo12, an epidemiologist and head of
the Science and Public Policy Institute in Washington, D.C.
"When the bee story first broke, it
was based on a German study that showed information carrying
radio waves disrupted the ability of bees to make it back to
Most people in the public don't know
the back story, so they do not see the manipulation coming or
have the necessary bases for skepticism to see through it."
the disappearance of bees (or CCD,
Colony Collapse Disorder) to five factors:
timing, the speed at which the
phenomenon has spread
the absence of adequate
scientific research to support chemical or biological causes
the fact that microwaves
interfere with intercellular communications
the suggestion we are near a
saturation point of these waves in the ambient environment
with bees as the likely the harbinger or the proverbial
'canaries in the coal mine'
although there is at least one
peer-reviewed study that supports it, the pattern is global
which suggests a cause that is globally present
"Taken together," said Carlo, "EMR
is the only explanation that makes sense regarding the
disappearing bees: the timing is correct - the problem has
occurred primarily within the past two years... when we have
nearly tripled the background level of information carrying
radio waves; the pattern is global so that suggests a cause that
is globally present; there is at least one peer-reviewed
that supports it, and there is a mechanism documented that lends
"In our view, this is a serious 'red flag' of risk that should
be heeded. This is yet another example of mobile phone industry
orchestration aimed at distracting the public from data that can
save lives," said Carlo.
In the winter of 2006-2007, CCD killed
32 percent of America's honeybees. The next winter, another 36 percent -
more than a million hives - died.
In 2009 Rowan Jacobson, editor of
the Art of Eating reported from Vermont:
"At first I was in denial," Olson
recalled. "Then I just felt weak and had to
lean against my truck. A year's hard work for naught!"
Olson wound up losing all 50 hives that
had overwintered in one particular bee yard.
That's bad enough, but
it pales next to some operations. Adee Honey Farms of South
Dakota, the largest beekeeping business in the country, lost 28,000
of its 70,000 hives.
That's about a billion bees gone
"It's off the charts," said Bret
Adee. "It's not a sustainable thing, what's happening now."
At first it looked as though the United
States was the sole sufferer of CCD, but the rest of the world
quickly reported losses also.
"The situation for bees in Europe is
no better than for bees in North America," says Bernard
Vaissière, a pollination specialist with the French National
Institute for Agricultural Research.
A report issued last August by the
European Food Safety Authority estimates that the UK lost about 30
percent of its honeybees in 2007, while Italy lost 40 to 50 percent.
Whatever is taking down bees has gone global.
And it isn't only bees that are disappearing.
In the British Isles
the ubiquitous Busy Lizzie or Impatiens beloved by millions of
gardeners has disappeared from D.I.Y. shops and garden centers -
ostensibly due to a 'fungal attack.'
Unofficial trials in unaffected areas
are proving the plant does not want to germinate. A group of 9th
grade school children found the same phenomenon in Denmark.
Cress seeds placed next to a Wi-Fi
router did not grow and some of those that did were mutated or died.14
"Now again," noted Trower, "very,
very recently Scientific American published an article of the 27
greatest risks to the planet, I can link low level microwaves to
18 of them direct. 18 of the 27, 67 percent."
Although Trower makes a concerted effort to avoid politics, he makes
what is, perhaps, the most political statement of all - and it is of
"Now, just to finish off," perhaps
literally and figuratively, Trower says, "microwaves are taking
a very, very sinister course at the moment.
They are used in
warfare. A few years ago three papers were published showing
that that the greatest contributor to carbon dioxide in the
atmosphere now is the communications industry.
They put more carbon dioxide into
the atmosphere than any other industry even more than the
aviation industry. 110 million tonnes, 29 million cars - that
was a few years ago before all your iPods and iPods came along."
Trower finds himself at the epicenter of
the 'Global Warming'
crowd and the Deniers.
"Now you may or may not believe in
global warming, I'm not going into that here," he said, "but one
thing cannot be disputed. When you have carbon dioxide in the
atmosphere, and it mixes with rainwater, you have carbolic acid.
And the carbolic acid comes down
into the oceans. And again, Scientific American or Nature, have
published that the acidity of the oceans has reached critical
levels for the photosynthesizers in the ocean and they produce
about 50 percent of the world's oxygen.
A lot of people don't realize that."
…for the punch-line he adds,
"We are really running the risk of
losing our planet."
Trower - The King and
Were it not so serious, it would be laughable.
Trower's observation that if half of the
world's scientists are employed by the military, then the scientific
world is nearly evenly divided between those who want to help
humanity and those who want to harm us.
"Microwaves are used in
microbiological warfare, atmospheric warfare, environmental
warfare," said Trower.
"It seems that when you have half
the world's scientists engaged by the military, who have nothing
else to do but to dream up 'how can I harm someone else' it's
not surprising that we have all of these things now.
And to finish off, I'm not boasting
when I say this, I have probably met around 40 royals, leaders
of governments, leaders of peoples, other important people
around the world and they started to tell me as I was going
I was picking up a familiar theme."
A true English academic in a
much-photographed green tweed sports jacket and matching everything
else in green, Trower is not given to the playfulness of British
whimsy or wishful thinking, however he does admit that he had a
"And I always wished I was the one
who was clever enough to think this up but I wasn't. It was a
king who had an Oxbridge (Oxford-Cambridge) law degree and we
were having lunch in his garden.
He leaned forward and he said,
'I can tell you one thing,
Barrie,' he said, 'I am losing the viability of my country.'
And then the pieces started to fall
'Since the mobile industry moved
in I lost a vast number of my insects which means I have to
start importing fruits or we get scurvy. We grow vitamin C
plants. I'm losing my cattle which means I'll have to start
importing other cattle.
I'm losing my trees and all my
other plants. My people are becoming sick and I have a paper
that shows it could be as much as another 40 percent on your
health bill. My people are becoming sick which means I'll
have to start importing medicines.'
'Now if you think - let's assume
you have 10 million cell phone users in my country and the
daily bill one euro a day, I'm losing the best part of 10
million Euros a day going out. Admittedly tax comes off and
they run shops and things but the majority of the money goes
And he said,
'Any child who knows how a money
box works can tell you that I as a country am going to go
bankrupt. Sooner or later I've got to go bankrupt.'
'when it gets worse, he said,
the very countries that bring the cell towers in and cause
the damage are the very countries - namely the Americans and
the Indonesians - He said they are the very countries, the
first in, to offer aid, a very generous package.'
'but there is a price for aid.'
He said they want mining rights,
they want mineral rights, they want land rights and they want
It's a trickle but it's a non-stop trickle.
'So I have all of this going out
and all of this coming in and,' he said, 'I'm going to lose
the viability of my country. I might still be king but I
will not be king of my country and my people and really that
sums it up.'"
Trower's prediction (for Ireland and
other countries) is not far removed from the experience the king
"So, if you were to say to me," said
Trower, "what's going to happen to Ireland?
It's simple, you are going to see an epidemic of birth defects,
with livestock and children that will put Thalidomide way into
That is going to happen without a shadow of a doubt. You are also going to lose the
viability of your country, that can't be helped as well - unless
you do something."
There is a parallel to the king's story
in Ireland where the cell phone industry with 5.5 million
subscribers is worth €1.65 billion15 according to the Central
In a country "bailed out" by the
so-called Troika of financial interests and where the government
pledged to save failed banks to the tune of €70 billion there is
ample evidence of the king's saga being repeated.
At present, Shared Access, a North
American Company founded with backing from financial powerhouses
GoldmanSachs and JPMorgan, is attempting to buy the income stream
from farmers who earn an income from having masts on their lands.
For a once-off payment to the farmer,
Shared Access will acquire all the income and the earnings will be
lost to the Irish economy.
The issue is compounded by a relationship with the Irish Farmers
Association which has agreed to a confidential arrangement.
As a not-for-profit Non-Governmental
Organization (NGO) the organization is beyond the reach of
government and any business arrangements a completely legal in site
of the fact that individual farmers, fee-paying members of the
group, are not allowed to ask questions,
"What can you do?" asked Trower perhaps optimistically
hanging onto an old fashioned concept of democracy.
"One suggestion - you may have
better suggestions - one suggestion is you get me back here to
talk to your full Parliament for one hour.
It sounds absurd but other than
e-mails and you approaching people.
If I could talk to them and
I could make them realize the proof. If I could talk to your
Parliament it may work. It may not but at least they know what
is coming and their children and it is their country and it
won't cost them a penny because I work for free.
They can't say 'We can't afford it'.
I'll even pay out of my own old age pension if that's what they
want but it will cost them one hour of their time and that is
It all boils down to timing and money.
In a time of austerity, money speaks louder than the health and
well-being of the population.
While Trower's advice may, in the long
term be priceless, talk, they say, is cheap - even on a Tetra radio,
a cell phone or a wireless network in a classroom.
was talking in Dublin...
While Trower was speaking in Dublin, a group of the world's top
scientists16 simultaneously came to a similar explanation and
conclusion called the
Potenza Picena Resolution during a conference
The resolution underscores Trower's warnings with scientists issuing
the following conclusions:
stricter safety standards for
EMF needs to be adopted by governments and public health
agencies because the existing ones are obsolete and they are
not based on recent literature about biological effects.
RF sources should be reduced as
low as possible because at now it is not possible to
establish a safe limit under which no biological effects can
RF sources should be kept far
from residential areas. For pulsed RF sources, such radars
and Wi-Max antennas, the distance from the EMF source should
be even greater because they cause more biologically effects
than non pulsed signals.
Wi-Fi should not be placed in
schools and in public areas since they have characteristics
of pulsed signals.
Five days after Trower gave his
testimony to the audience in Dublin, the Federal Communications
Commission in the United States waived objections to the use of
Tetra in the United States.
Yet another young man, age 23, died in his bed of a heart attack in
Ireland. The only country in the world that is monitoring the
emergence of a "new" disease, Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).
It was less than a month after the Sepura company in the U.K.
announced plans to deploy Tetra for the first time in North America
in Washington State.
