keys to your health, health

Janice Alexander, author of Keys to Your Health

Where would we be without Wi-Fi? We’re in the age of convenience and we’ve got the benefit of having access to the internet wherever we go. Nowadays if we don’t get Wi-Fi access in a cafe or while we’re on the train, we’d see it as a major inconvenience.

But is that Wi-Fi harming us?

Most mainstream scientists say that it is having no ill-effects whatsoever and that anyone who states otherwise simply doesn’t know what they are talking about.

Enter Janice Alexander, a health excellence coach and author of Keys to Your Health. Janice is an osteopath that has been studying health for the past 15 years. She is one of a growing number of people that is convinced that Wi-Fi is causing harm to our health.

Over the last 3 weeks, she has held 3 seminars about how Wi-Fi is destroying our health.

For the second seminar, the topic was ‘Autism a Man Made Epidemic’. In it, she said that vaccines and Wi-Fi, were helping to cause the neurological condition.

It was this seminar that caused waves of outrage across Leeds, and resulted in her receiving death threats, scores of angry emails and activists that desperately tried to shut her event down.

Indeed, she was due to hold the event series in Manchester, but this was involuntarily cancelled.

She was then meant to hold another seminar at Roscoe Church in Chapeltown. Following pressure form faceless activist groups, this too was cancelled.

However, one venue – BlackPearl HairCare, a black owned salon which provides hair treatments to the black community allowed her to use their venue.

They too were subsequently attacked both by activists and the mainstream media that accused them of peddling hate.

Activists claimed that she was evil, that she was promoting violence against people with autism and that she was trying to get them eradicated. They also claimed that the only people who were attending were people who were coming together to spread lies about people with autism and make fun of their condition.

I wanted to see for myself whether the activists were correct and whether Janice Alexander really was peddling hate about people with autism. I was surprised to learn that many of the people at her event either had children with autism or knew someone with the condition.

Their reason for attending was to learn more about why Janice believed that Wi-Fi, chemicals in our food and vaccines caused autism. I was also surprised to learn that the owner of BlackPearl had actually invited some of the activists to attend the meeting, but they refused. They preferred to just stand outside and shout slogans about how Janice Alexander was running a smear campaign against people with autism.

When Janice Alexander started giving examples of people who had purportedly cured their children from autism, this understandably, led to a debate and no real conclusion was reached. However, at no point were hateful words or language levelled at people with autism.

Janice believes that chemicals such as aluminium, sodium benzoate and other preservatives lead to the decline in our health and wellbeing. She also believes that Wi-Fi helps to cause a range of conditions such as cancer, insomnia migraines, heart problems and autism.

This led to her getting derided by the media, who called her a quack and claimed that all of this has already been refuted by mainstream science.

If that is the case, then why are so many institutions and governments banning Wi-Fi from certain areas? In many countries across the world, Wi-Fi is not allowed near schools or maternity wards.

In 2013, the French National Assembly passed an amendment banning Wi-Fi from nursery schools.  Wi-Fi will be banned from maternity wards and child-care facilities and communities would have to be consulted before any installations in schools. Wi-Fi in schools is discouraged until its proven “safe for human consumption.”

Furthermore, in 2013, the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety Report recommended  “limiting the population’s exposure to radio frequencies… especially for children and intensive users, and controlling the overall exposure that results from relay antennas.” The report also recommended hands free phones and SAR (radiation absorption) labeling.

Similarly, in Ghent, Belgium, Wi-Fi was banned from nursery schools and daycare centres. There was also a total advertising ban on cell phones aimed at children younger than 14.

In Russia, the National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection has repeatedly warned about the impact of electromagnetic radiation on children and recommended that WiFi should not be used in schools.

Similar bans were seen in Australia, Finland, Switzerland, Germany, India and Uganda.

So are all of these committees and government institutions around the world just crackpot conspiracy theorists that are hedging their bets on unproven science?

Well, let’s take a look at some actual peer-reviewed science.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has studied a number of scientific research papers highlighting a link between Wi-Fi towers and cancer, depression, loss of memory and insomnia. They have concluded that therefore Wi-Fi is a hazard to our health. You can see that here.

A compilation of research studies showed that cell phone tower radiation is detrimental to health. You can read these here.

Here are a few more studies (many of which are reviews of other peer-reviewed studies):

The studies above are far from exhaustive and if you are curious about reading more of these studies about the detrimental effects of Wi-Fi on our health, please get in touch – I’ve literally got hundreds more from scientists around the world that I could send you.

Dr Andrew Wakefield’s studies were discredited with one study and by the mainstream media. But what about all the others?

Ah yes, but what about the link between vaccines and autism? According to the mainstream media, the only study that appears to show that vaccines cause autism is the study by Dr Andrew Wakefield, which was debunked by mainstream scientists.

So is Dr Wakefield the only researcher who has come to this conclusion?

In short: No.

Below, I am going to highlight 3 other peer-reviewed studies that were published by the US National Library of Medicine, then I am going to leave the links to 21 further studies at the end of this article.

The first is a two-phase study evaluating the relationship between Thimerosal-containing vaccine administration and the risk of an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis in the United States.

It concludes: “Routine childhood vaccination is an important public health tool to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with infectious diseases, but the present study provides new epidemiological evidence supporting an association between increasing organic-Hg exposure from Thimerosal-containing childhood vaccines and the subsequent risk of an ASD diagnosis.”

The study was led by 6 scientists from the Institute of Chronic Illnesses in the US, David A Geier, Brian S Hooker, Janet K Kern, Paul G King,Lisa K Sykes, and Mark R Geier.

Another study highlighted the link between the measles-mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism in children. The study was conducted by the Department of Biology and Biotechnology Center at Utah State University.

According to the research: “Autoimmunity to the central nervous system (CNS), especially to myelin basic protein (MBP), may play a causal role in autism, a neurodevelopmental disorder. We suggest that an inappropriate antibody response to MMR, specifically the measles component thereof, might be related to pathogenesis of autism.”

A third study conducted by the Institute of Chronic Illnesses at Silver Spring, Maryland, highlighted a link between autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) and mercury toxic encephalopathies caused by vaccines.

It found that “while genetic factors are important to the pathogenesis of ASDs, mercury exposure can induce immune, sensory, neurological, motor, and behavioral dysfunctions similar to traits defining or associated with ASDs.”

The study concluded that evidence for mercury intoxication from vaccines should be considered as contributing to regressive ASDs.

So why are these studies never mentioned when criticising people like Dr Wakefield and Janice Alexander? Most of the mainstream media would have you believe that only 1 or 2 studies ever supported Dr Wakefield’s findings and that all of those have been discredited.

A quick Google search pulled up hundreds of peer-reviewed studies. If I were to include all of them here, this article would be about 100 pages long. When each and every single one of them gets discredited, then perhaps we can judge Dr Wakefield’s findings more harshly. Again, links to 21 of them below.

But actually that leads us to another problem.

You can find a scientific study that supports almost any finding or conclusion. So it’s hardly surprising there are studies that say vaccines don’t cause autism, and other studies that say they do.

This is why it is so important to look at the credibility of the person conducting the studies. It is also important to consider whether or not they have been peer-reviewed by other scientists and health professionals and who sponsors those studies. The sponsorship of those studies is very important. If the organization sponsoring those studies have vested interests in highlighting a certain outcome, then how will that influence the results of the study?

For example, one of the studies that claimed the MMR vaccine does not cause autism was funded by pharmaceutical companies involved in vaccine development.

flu vaccine, vaccines

Let’s look at this a little more closely.

A Pediatrics: Official Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics study titled, “Safety of Vaccines Used for Routine Immunization of US Children: A Systematic Review,” claimed the following: “We found evidence that some vaccines are associated with serious AEs [adverse effects]; however, these events are extremely rare and must be weighed against the protective benefits that vaccines provide.”

While the report itself was funded by the US government, the RAND Corporation from which its authors were drawn is funded by the very corporations (.PDF page 70) that manufacture various vaccines, including the MMR vaccine which was the primary focus of the report.

Big-pharma sponsors of RAND include GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Merck – the latter of which is listed by the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) specifically as the manufacturer of the MMR vaccine.

Merck has also directly and openly sponsored other research conducted by RAND (here and here). RAND’s other big-pharma sponsor, GSK, has been recently exposed amid a global multi-billion dollar bribing scandal where it was paying off doctors to endorse and distribute their products.

While the science of vaccinations may be sound, the corporations that have monopolized their manufacturing and distribution often have vested interests. The question is not necessarily whether the process of vaccinating is good or bad, but why corporations are allowed to control that process and what can be done to prevent conflicts of interests.

So if anyone is to blame for the public distrust in vaccinations, then fingers should be pointing directly at Big Pharma itself.
