The following is from Kevin Mottus:


Mobile Now Act and The Digit Bill have passed out of the Senate Commerce Committee and are headed to the full senate for a vote. They will probably be heard in the next week or two.

Have all your people call every senator's office now. If they feel strongly have them come to Washington DC and do it in person. There are only 100 senators. Tell them to ask for the Chief of Staff then the Legislative Director. If you do not talk to them then leave a message on voicemail and send an email to the Legislative Director and Chief of Staff. The email addresses in the senate are a set format: First name Underscore Last Name@SenatorsLastName.senate.gov. For all senators contact info go to: https://www.senate.gov/senators/contact/. If the Chief of Staff or Legislative Director is not available, try to talk to a staffer and not the receptionist that answers the phone. Ask for staffer in charge of environmental or health issues if Legislative Director is not there. Tell them how you feel about having a 5G Mini Cell Tower near or in front of your home. Ask them to ask the Senator to block these bills.

Go to your Senators local office and talk to the director there and ask them to block these bills.

Ask them to Vote NO on Mobile Now Act S.19 and Vote NO on Digit Act S.88.

After you have talked with them yourself, you can ask for a meeting for me (Kevin Mottus) and the staffer to provide more information. You can set up an appointment for me and be on the phone or not whatever is comfortable for you. I will likely meet with them with an expert on the phone. Email me at Keephealthyfamilies@gmail.com with any meeting times and info.

Bill Info: These bills lay the foundation for the Internet of Things that will require a small cell tower transmitter every couple of homesemitting high frequency 24Ghz to 90Ghz which has never been tested for non-thermal biological effects. These transmitters will be put in public right of ways with NO ability to consider health and safety. The transmitters will be ugly, decrease property values, and expose occupants to harmful wireless radiation so basically your appliances can communicate with one another which does not seem like a necessity and your privacy can be violated even more easily.

Samsung...we meet again. A while back I wrote about and made a little YouTube voice-over with images of disabling wireless from a Samsung refrigerator. Well, I had another opportunity to meet a Samsung device without the option to disable wireless without getting out a screwdriver.


Suggestion to manufacturers: Put a physical power switch on these devices so that we can shut off the WiFi without 1) having to rely on software settings which could be inadvertently reset or updated and 2) having to physically open up the device to disconnect something. Please hear us - there are plenty of people who do not want the wireless functionality - who do not want the radiation - from these devices.


So this TV - a Samsung UN32J5500AF - is a Smart TV that came with a house my parents recently moved into. The TV has an Ethernet hookup on the back, which we utilized. But hooking it up to Ethernet didn't stop the wireless signals. There also were no settings in the menu to completely disable it. The TV was even radiating RF radiation when it was off - simply being plugged-into the power outlet made the unit transmit 24/7.


My parents didn't want that in their kitchen, and I certainly didn't want it in their kitchen either. They spend a lot of time there, and my family spends a lot of time there when we visit. No thank you, Samsung.


So, a standard Phillips screw driver, and about a dozen or so screws, and the back cover of the TV came off very easily. I made sure to periodically touch something ground to avoid ESD (electrostatic discharge). And I made sure simply not to touch any of the metal contacts anywhere inside - on the circuit boards.


As you can see in the pictures - there are 2 small black boxes with sickers with an FCC ID on them. These are the wireless devices. I'm not sure why there are 2, but they were. Look at that - they have as simple connect that pops off. A flathead screw driver helped me pop these 2 connectors off so that they are completely disconnected.


Now our family enjoys high definition and the "Smart" TV features like YouTube/Netflix/etc sans radiation.

Video created by Warren Woodward and Paul Harding

The following article about this video by Shaun Kranish, Founder of the IEHA. Permission is granted to copy and repost this article in its entirety, unedited, with link to this page (original source).


This powerful video was just released! It's one of the most powerful out there covering the facts about the serious health risks associated with current "smart meter" technology. Paul Harding, the gentleman in the black shirt operating the equipment, is a colleague of mine. I have enormous respect for his work - he knows a great deal about EMF measurement and remediation, and also about the scientific evidence showing EMF health effects.


Warren Woodward, the gentleman in the white shirt, has been a very effective advocate for meter freedom - fighting the smart meter scams and corruption in Arizona. They've teamed up in this to show you live video recorded oscilloscope waveforms of smart meter activity, as well as radiofrequency meter measurements, electric field measurements, Graham Stetzer (Stetzerizer) measurements, and an analysis of the findings.


In a nut shell - this video shows something that many people are unaware of - so-called "smart meters" create dangerous frequencies that they put on all of the wiring in a home or other building. These frequencies then can affect the body - these same frequencies that research is showing will BLOCK nerve function - throughout the entire home. It's not just the wireless signal that the "smart meter" uses to communicate - it's also the switch-mode power supply that powers this radio.


As of this writing, I have been researching and working professionally in EMF health for over 8 years. In this time I have dealt with numerous people who "opted-out" of their "smart meter" only to be given another type of electronic (also called "digital" or "solid-state") electric meter - the kind made of plastic with LCD displays. While these digital electric meters do NOT transmit wirelessly for communication, they still use switch-mode power supplies and cause the same problem shown in this video. This is why I believe the numerous individuals I've spoken to over the years were made just as ill or even more ill by the digital opt-out meter.


digital-type electric meter - solid state

Photo example of a digital meter


So don't forget that smart meters cause 2 types of pollution: the wireless radiofrequency transmissions through the air, and also the high-frequency voltage transients - also called "dirty electricity" or "intermediate frequencies." This is electrical pollution, and may be just as responsible for making people ill as the wireless transmissions.


This is why everyone should have the option and freedom to have a safe, clean analog meter. An analog meter does not contain electronics - AC/DC switching circuitry which interrupts current flow - using current in tiny super-fast pulses. This causes voltage spikes on the entire system which are then placed everywhere in the living environment because most people are surrounded by unshielded live electrical wiring. This electric field comes out a great distance.


So we must demand the ability to have safe, clean, industry-standard analog meters with NO electronics or automated meter reading capability until we can be sure of a safe technology that is tested and proven free of pollution. Take your health seriously and do not underestimate the dangerous of so-called "smart meters." In my work all these years smart meters have been the number one complaint by far. No other device (cell phone, wifi, computer, etc) comes even close. I've personally spoken with hundreds if not thousands of individuals who directly associate their newly-developed symptoms with the smart meter. They often didn't even know the meter was placed on their house, but luckily through research made the connection, called their power company to see when it was installed and sure enough it was the same exact time the symptoms began.


Photo example of an analog meter with the disc or wheel that spins and dials


There are too many victims, too much scientific evidence about dirty electricity and RF, for this to be anything but truth. It's time to act upon it. Protect yourself and your family and friends now. Demand analog meters, and if the power company won't do it send them a legal notice stating they are not allowed anything but an analog meter on your property, and if they don't install one within 7 days, you will do it yourself. These legal notices are available at freedomtaker.com for free. Numerous sites sell analog meters for extremely reasonable prices. ($50 or less to your door).


Get a doctor's note, a lawyer's letter, or just do the legal notice and install it yourself (most effective) if your power company refuses to honor your choice and freedom when it comes to the type of meter used on your property. The IEHA has started an initiative to see that everyone can have totally-free analog opt-out of smart meters. Check out www.meterfreedom.org and sign up for the newsletter and let us know what state you are in. We will take back each state one-by-one.


The IEHA is a not-for-profit and largely volunteer organization dedicated to advancing the knowledge of EMF health effects and the application of this knowledge to protect the public from the very real dangers of non-ionizing radiation and electricity.

I recently attended the Building Biology seminar - Electromagnetics (IBE 212). The educational organization that puts this on can be found at http://www.hbelc.org



It was a 5-day seminar, many hours of both classroom and hands-on lab work with professional instruments. The class was full - one of their largest ever. The interest and demand in this area appears to be growing. Have you considered getting training? Would you like to understand more of the basics of the different types of exposure, how to measure them, what recommended levels are, and what can be done to fix them?

Check out my big full review and discussion here to find out what this class was like, from my own perspective having completed it.

Following the South Korean government’s sudden announcement earlier this month of the deployment site for the US military’s THAAD missile defense system, there has been a fierce debate about the electromagnetic waves emitted by the THAAD radar.


While the government has used a variety of strategies in a public relations campaign designed to convince residents of Seongju County that the electromagnetic waves are of no concern, this does not appear to be much consolation for the people who will have the radar base in their backyards.


Electromagnetic waves move at the speed of light during the regular oscillation of electric fields and magnetic fields. The word “electromagnetic wave” has probably reminded many people of the harmful ELF (extremely low frequency) electromagnetic waves that are produced by power lines and household appliances such as electric blankets and televisions. But electromagnetic waves are in fact an extensive category including the various frequencies used in broadcasting and telecommunications and even sunlight.


THAAD’s eye is the AN/TPY-2(TM) radar, which identifies targets by shooting a beam of electromagnetic waves into the area under observation and detecting any waves that bounce back.


These electromagnetic waves are X-band microwaves with a frequency of 8 to 12 GHz (gigahertz) and a wavelength of 2.5 to 3.75 cm. The X-band falls between the C-band (4-8 GHz) and the Ku-band (12-18 GHz), as defined by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

The X-band is used around the world not only by military radars but also by radars on civilian vessels, radars for meteorological observations, the radar guns that police point at speeding cars and ham radio operators.


Experts are reluctant to answer questions about safety


The microwaves created in the THAAD radar’s electromagnetic wave generator pass through an amplifier and are then released toward the target area through the antenna. While data has not been made public about the output of the antenna that determines the strength of the radar’s electromagnetic waves, it must be very strong, given THAAD’s detection range.

The US army’s instruction manual for the AN/TPY-2(FBM) states that the radar’s range for detecting an enemy missile prior to the intermediate stage of its trajectory is at least 1,000km. The AN/TPY-2(FBM) and the AN/TPY-2(TM) radars have the same hardware, and only their software is different, the manual explains.

I am going to post a series of educational videos that I am producing on the ground current pollution problem we are experiencing not only in Ontario but in other provinces and in other countries, like the U.S. Most people are unaware of this form of electromagnetic pollution. However, it is getting worse and needs to be dealt with. Ground current is a problem not only in some rural areas but in urban areas as well. We have considerable information about how it affects livestock, especially dairy cows. It also affects people and non-agriculture animals.


Attempts to bring in a private member’s bill in Ontario to resolve the ground current pollution problem has failed twice now, first in 2006 and again this year. I have no hope that this government is going to do anything useful about the ground current problem. Nor do I think a change in government will make any difference. Our electrical utility, that is responsible for much of this problem, is being sold to the private sector and I certainly don’t think they will spend the money to get the current out of the ground.

Animal care groups, like the OSPCA that have been informed about the problem, are choosing not to get involved. This issue has become a political hot potato that just gets tossed around with no real progress being made.

A few years ago when a dog got electrocuted during a regular dog walk, there was a great public outcry. But when an animal dies on a farm … it is quietly buried with the farmer having to bare the economic and emotional cost.

The consequence is that animals will continue to suffer and die. Some more farmers will go out of business and their children won’t inherit the family farm.

People care about animals and if they only knew how these animals suffer they would not stand by and do nothing. The problem is they don’t know. I hope these videos will create greater awareness.

The videos are meant to provide information about what is creating this ground current problem and why; the effects it has on dairy cows and other animals including people; and how the problem can be resolved.

Below are links to the videos I’ve created so far. I will continue to add to this blog as the videos come on line. Feel free to share the videos. As more people learn about this, and if the media continues to report on the problem, we may eventually alert someone in a position of authority who has the brains and the balls to do the right thing and get the current out of the ground and back onto the wires where it belongs.

A transition to an intelligent electricity grid in Europe can take place without smart meters, industry players have said, in comments that will embarrass the European Commission, which pushed a Europe-wide plan to roll out smart meters years ago.


There are other more efficient ways than smart meters to help develop intelligent power grids, said industry delegates at the annual convention of Europe’s electricity association Eurelectric, held in Vilnius last week.

These include quicker integration of renewables, the development of energy storage and energy demand response solutions, said the industry representatives.

The actual benefits of smart meters were also questioned at the conference, as several member states have done previously. Germany, for instance, has decided not to have a national roll-out plan at all, running counter to requirements laid out in EU legislation.

80% roll-out target


EU member states are required to implement smart meters under the 2009 Third Energy Package wherever it is cost-effective to do so, with the goal to replace 80% of electricity meters with smart meters by 2020.

The 80% target applies to both households and commercial buildings, a Commission spokesperson confirmed. The EU executive will publish in the next one to two years a report on smart meters “in the context of our regular monitoring exercise of the progress of members states,” the spokesperson said.

But progress has been sluggish, with few countries having completed their roll-outs and a number of nations – most notably Germany – having so far decided against a nation-wide deployment of smart meters.

And the countries that do have a commitment to smart meters, such as the UK, have run into hurdles in completing its roll-out because some meters would cease to work if a consumer decided to change energy supplier.

Markus Merkel, a senior advisor to the management board of German distribution system operator (DSO) EWE, told the Eurelectric conference that “there isn’t a positive business case” for smart meters in Germany.


Real data vital


EWE’s move towards an intelligent grid has focused to a large extent on upgrading the system to integrate the vast amount of new renewable energy at a quicker pace.

He said smart meters would be more useful for DSOs in their work to upgrade the grid if they provided real time data on energy consumption rather than the circa 15-minute intervals that current products provide.

“We need something different, and maybe smart metering 2.0 – the next generation of smart meters – will deliver something more that we as DSOs can also use,” he said.

Laurence Carpanini, director smarter energy solutions at IBM, echoed the real time data point, adding: “I don’t look at smart meters now as being the drivers of change – you don’t need smart meters really.”

Instead, industry players should “think about flexibility solutions as a whole” and focus on a mix of demand response technologies, frequency response and energy storage, he said.

Storage was also highlighted by Ari Koponen, CEO of Finnish DSO and utility Caruna. He said that while smart meters have been “essential” for collecting energy consumption data, the aspiration should be to access this data in real time and bring in more storage solutions.

“This would [bring] the smartness of the grid to a whole different level,” Koponen said.

The industry’s comments are an embarrassment for the European Commission’s own plan to deploy smart meters across Europe by 2020.

The Commission spokesperson declined to comment on the views about whether or not smart meters are necessary for the transition to an intelligent grid.

Member states are expected to conduct their own cost-benefit analyses for their national smart meters roll-out plans, the official said.

This powerful video was just released! It's one of the most powerful out there covering the facts about the serious health risks associated with current "smart meter" technology. Paul Harding, the gentleman in the black shirt operating the equipment, is a colleague of mine. I have enormous respect for his work - he knows a great deal about EMF measurement and remediation, and also about the scientific evidence showing EMF health effects.


Warren Woodward, the gentleman in the white shirt, has been a very effective advocate for meter freedom - fighting the smart meter scams and corruption in Arizona. They've teamed up in this to show you live video recorded oscilloscope waveforms of smart meter activity, as well as radiofrequency meter measurements, electric field measurements, Graham Stetzer (Stetzerizer) measurements, and an analysis of the findings.


In a nut shell - this video shows something that many people are unaware of - so-called "smart meters" create dangerous frequencies that they put on all of the wiring in a home or other building. These frequencies then can affect the body - these same frequencies that research is showing will BLOCK nerve function - throughout the entire home. It's not just the wireless signal that the "smart meter" uses to communicate - it's also the switch-mode power supply that powers this radio.


As of this writing, I have been researching and working professionally in EMF health for over 8 years. In this time I have dealt with numerous people who "opted-out" of their "smart meter" only to be given another type of electronic (also called "digital" or "solid-state") electric meter - the kind made of plastic with LCD displays. While these digital electric meters do NOT transmit wirelessly for communication, they still use switch-mode power supplies and cause the same problem shown in this video. This is why I believe the numerous individuals I've spoken to over the years were made just as ill or even more ill by the digital opt-out meter.

So don't forget that smart meters cause 2 types of pollution: the wireless radiofrequency transmissions through the air, and also the high-frequency voltage transients - also called "dirty electricity" or "intermediate frequencies." This is electrical pollution, and may be just as responsible for making people ill as the wireless transmissions.


This is why everyone should have the option and freedom to have a safe, clean analog meter. An analog meter does not contain electronics - AC/DC switching circuitry which interrupts current flow - using current in tiny super-fast pulses. This causes voltage spikes on the entire system which are then placed everywhere in the living environment because most people are surrounded by unshielded live electrical wiring. This electric field comes out a great distance.


So we must demand the ability to have safe, clean, industry-standard analog meters with NO electronics or automated meter reading capability until we can be sure of a safe technology that is tested and proven free of pollution. Take your health seriously and do not underestimate the dangerous of so-called "smart meters." In my work all these years smart meters have been the number one complaint by far. No other device (cell phone, wifi, computer, etc) comes even close. I've personally spoken with hundreds if not thousands of individuals who directly associate their newly-developed symptoms with the smart meter. They often didn't even know the meter was placed on their house, but luckily through research made the connection, called their power company to see when it was installed and sure enough it was the same exact time the symptoms began.

There are too many victims, too much scientific evidence about dirty electricity and RF, for this to be anything but truth. It's time to act upon it. Protect yourself and your family and friends now. Demand analog meters, and if the power company won't do it send them a legal notice stating they are not allowed anything but an analog meter on your property, and if they don't install one within 7 days, you will do it yourself. These legal notices are available at freedomtaker.com for free. Numerous sites sell analog meters for extremely reasonable prices. ($50 or less to your door).


Get a doctor's note, a lawyer's letter, or just do the legal notice and install it yourself (most effective) if your power company refuses to honor your choice and freedom when it comes to the type of meter used on your property. The IEHA has started an initiative to see that everyone can have totally-free analog opt-out of smart meters. Check out www.meterfreedom.org and sign up for the newsletter and let us know what state you are in. We will take back each state one-by-one.


The IEHA is a not-for-profit and largely volunteer organization dedicated to advancing the knowledge of EMF health effects and the application of this knowledge to protect the public from the very real dangers of non-ionizing radiation and electricity.

I recently attended the Building Biology seminar - Electromagnetics (IBE 212). The educational organization that puts this on can be found at http://www.hbelc.org



It was a 5-day seminar, many hours of both classroom and hands-on lab work with professional instruments. The class was full - one of their largest ever. The interest and demand in this area appears to be growing. Have you considered getting training? Would you like to understand more of the basics of the different types of exposure, how to measure them, what recommended levels are, and what can be done to fix them?

Check out my big full review and discussion here to find out what this class was like, from my own perspective having completed it.

Following the South Korean government’s sudden announcement earlier this month of the deployment site for the US military’s THAAD missile defense system, there has been a fierce debate about the electromagnetic waves emitted by the THAAD radar.


While the government has used a variety of strategies in a public relations campaign designed to convince residents of Seongju County that the electromagnetic waves are of no concern, this does not appear to be much consolation for the people who will have the radar base in their backyards.


Electromagnetic waves move at the speed of light during the regular oscillation of electric fields and magnetic fields. The word “electromagnetic wave” has probably reminded many people of the harmful ELF (extremely low frequency) electromagnetic waves that are produced by power lines and household appliances such as electric blankets and televisions. But electromagnetic waves are in fact an extensive category including the various frequencies used in broadcasting and telecommunications and even sunlight.


THAAD’s eye is the AN/TPY-2(TM) radar, which identifies targets by shooting a beam of electromagnetic waves into the area under observation and detecting any waves that bounce back.


These electromagnetic waves are X-band microwaves with a frequency of 8 to 12 GHz (gigahertz) and a wavelength of 2.5 to 3.75 cm. The X-band falls between the C-band (4-8 GHz) and the Ku-band (12-18 GHz), as defined by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

The X-band is used around the world not only by military radars but also by radars on civilian vessels, radars for meteorological observations, the radar guns that police point at speeding cars and ham radio operators.


Experts are reluctant to answer questions about safety


The microwaves created in the THAAD radar’s electromagnetic wave generator pass through an amplifier and are then released toward the target area through the antenna. While data has not been made public about the output of the antenna that determines the strength of the radar’s electromagnetic waves, it must be very strong, given THAAD’s detection range.

The US army’s instruction manual for the AN/TPY-2(FBM) states that the radar’s range for detecting an enemy missile prior to the intermediate stage of its trajectory is at least 1,000km. The AN/TPY-2(FBM) and the AN/TPY-2(TM) radars have the same hardware, and only their software is different, the manual explains.

I am going to post a series of educational videos that I am producing on the ground current pollution problem we are experiencing not only in Ontario but in other provinces and in other countries, like the U.S. Most people are unaware of this form of electromagnetic pollution. However, it is getting worse and needs to be dealt with. Ground current is a problem not only in some rural areas but in urban areas as well. We have considerable information about how it affects livestock, especially dairy cows. It also affects people and non-agriculture animals.


Attempts to bring in a private member’s bill in Ontario to resolve the ground current pollution problem has failed twice now, first in 2006 and again this year. I have no hope that this government is going to do anything useful about the ground current problem. Nor do I think a change in government will make any difference. Our electrical utility, that is responsible for much of this problem, is being sold to the private sector and I certainly don’t think they will spend the money to get the current out of the ground.

Animal care groups, like the OSPCA that have been informed about the problem, are choosing not to get involved. This issue has become a political hot potato that just gets tossed around with no real progress being made.

A few years ago when a dog got electrocuted during a regular dog walk, there was a great public outcry. But when an animal dies on a farm … it is quietly buried with the farmer having to bare the economic and emotional cost.

The consequence is that animals will continue to suffer and die. Some more farmers will go out of business and their children won’t inherit the family farm.

People care about animals and if they only knew how these animals suffer they would not stand by and do nothing. The problem is they don’t know. I hope these videos will create greater awareness.

The videos are meant to provide information about what is creating this ground current problem and why; the effects it has on dairy cows and other animals including people; and how the problem can be resolved.

Below are links to the videos I’ve created so far. I will continue to add to this blog as the videos come on line. Feel free to share the videos. As more people learn about this, and if the media continues to report on the problem, we may eventually alert someone in a position of authority who has the brains and the balls to do the right thing and get the current out of the ground and back onto the wires where it belongs.
