Smart Meters: Big Brother's Trojan Horse

by Milt Bowling

We elect politicians to represent our best interests. Therefore, it is shocking when these elected officials do just the opposite. This is once again the case with smart meters, which are being mandated on every home in North America with no proof of safety.

Pushed as part of a "green" agenda, these wireless digital meters will replace the analogue meters that have served us well for half a century. Smart meters will be used to measure our electricity consumption on a minute-by-minute basis, all day, every day. Find out the downside to smart meters, including alarming mercury matters >> http://www.hans.org/162-smart-meters-big-brothers-tr...

Living Safely with Electromagnetic Radiation

by Alexis Costello

In Living Safely with Electromagnetic Radiation: A Complete Guide for Protecting Your Health, Jim Waugh explains the health complaints that are linked to electromagnetic radiation (EMR) exposure. A few chapters into this well-researched and engaging read will probably result in a strong urge to unplug everything in your house, disconnect your cellphone and throw your laptop off a cliff.

Living Savely with Electromagnetic Radiation is now available on Amazon >> http://www.amazon.ca/Living-Safely-Electromagnetic-R...

Three Lawsuits about Fluoridation

by Fluoride Action Network

Three lawsuits have been filed recently in the U.S. that could have a major impact on the fluoridation debate. The first lawsuit happened in Clallam County, Washington, on April 28. The second lawsuit was filed by an individual of Gallatin, Tennessee on July 19. The third lawsuit was filed in the federal District Court, Southern District of California, on August 9. These three lawsuits insist on better protection of the public health by application of existing laws. >> https://www.hans.org/magazine/883/Three-Lawsuits-about-Fluoridation
