Shocking Health Hazards and Environmental Impact of Wireless Communications

category galway | environment | press release author Tuesday May 03, 2011 18:51author by Des Doherty Report this post to the editors

Talks taking place in County Galway on the health and environmental effects of mobile phone masts, and what to do about it, with two renowned experts.

‘It’s shocking, that people are not aware of the consequences of microwave radiation.’
John Ryan, Tipperary farmer

Ryan, his family and farm animals all suffered various effects from microwaves which ended when he successfully had a mast removed from his land.

These are the details of the talks taking place in County Galway, May 2011:

Venue: Ballymacward Community Hall

Day 1
Saturday 7th May, 7:30 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Sunday 8th May 7 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
Presenter: Paul Doyon .goes into greater depth on the science of health and environmental effects.
Paul will also share his personal story and experiences, with use of fascinating visuals.


• Weak regulation status of wireless radiation in Ireland
• Widespread environmental effects, including bees, frogs, birds and farm animals
• Documented health effects on humans, including DNA damage, cancer, autism, ADHD, chronic fatigue, depression
and epilepsy. Intensified health damage to children and babies.
• Precise pragmatic action plan for Woodlawn and neighbouring communities: campaign for the signal to be turned down
on local masts, by as much as ten times, without loss of benefit for users yet with ten-fold less health and environmental
A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME opportunity to learn first-hand the most up-to-date science and practical tips to protect yourself.

On a related matter the Tetra system which is slightly different than the standard mobile radio system is used by the police force in the UK and it has now been adopted by the Garda in Ireland.

As soon as the system went in there were significant health problems both in the local communities and reported amongst the police in the UK, although the latter were eventually silenced

There was a great article on the whole background to this in The Ecologist magazine back in 2004 titled 'A Popular Revolt' and the article itself can be downloaded from here: http://www.tetrawatch.net/papers/ecologist170904.pdf

There is now a group called TetraWatch based in UK and their website is given below. It is likely that those affected by phone masts may want to read up on some of this material

TETRA stands for ‘Terrestrial Trunked Radio’. It is the new police radio system, operated by O2 under the brand name Airwave. It is also used by fire and ambulance in some places (in the UK)
