A Joburg woman believes the imminent roll-out of 4G cellular telephony could have massive health implications for anyone in the path of the signal.

The government disagrees. So does cellphone giant MTN, which is doing 4G/LTE testing in the north of Joburg.

Tracey-Lee Dorny has 60 pine trees in her garden. They have all been burnt and blackened – in the last five months. Her neighbours also report blackened trees.

“I first noticed these big scorch marks on my pines, and then some of the eucalyptus and the fir trees around Fourways,” says Dorny, chairman of the Electromagnetic Research Foundation of SA, from her Craigavon home. “It’s like very focused beams are coming through here and hitting some of the trees and plants. The signals are fairly high-powered and they’re transmitting long distances… The resin just bursts open.”

4G is the fourth generation of wireless communication standards, converging computers and cellphones wirelessly in an era of ultra-fast broadband internet access.

Dorny suspects the sudden firestorm in her garden is MTN’s testing of its new technology in her area, which she believes corresponds with reports of illnesses in Fourways, Dainfern, Sunninghill and further afield.

The trees are an indicator of what is to come, she believes. “We’re receiving more reports of headaches, blurry vision, tinnitus and nausea and problems with breathing and hair loss in the area. Children are experiencing severe shooting pains in their muscles and joints.”

Last year she won an epic battle against iBurst when it removed a wi-fi mast it had erected 30m from her bedroom window, which had caused her family to fall ill. She has since been diagnosed as electrosensitive, becoming physically ill when exposed to electromagnetic radiation.

This month Dorny wrote to the Ministers of Communication, Health, Water and Environmental Affairs about her foundation’s concerns. She told them the MTN testing was the cusp of the next technological revolution with digital TV being next.

“The number of service providers in South Africa wanting to roll out the service, if it is allowed, will result in a bigger impact on health and environment and the deployment of even more towers.”

Israel, she said, had forbidden a 4G/LTE roll-out until a proper study was done but in SA the government had not acted on an industry that was self-regulating, unmonitored and out of control. “We want an investigation to find out who is doing what and who is testing… but Icasa have told us that once people are licensed, they have no idea what they roll out, when and where and how.”

This week Amanda Britz of the Department of Environmental Affairs wrote that the Department of Health was “satisfied that, based on the current research and guidelines, which are endorsed by the World Health Organisation (WHO), the health of the general public is not being compromised (by) their exposure to the microwave emissions of cellular base stations”.

However, says Dorny, there are areas in Joburg where the levels are high and uncontrolled.

“But the companies will tell you they’re perfectly safe, but nobody is monitoring… Our levels compared with what other countries define as safe levels are two totally different things. It just takes that one extra signal, frequency, or a WiMax, then you find a lot of people start to get ill. They get headaches and rashes, but the minute they switch it off, or remove it from their office, their symptoms go away.”

Last year the WHO revealed that the International Agency for Research on Cancer had declared that the electromagnetic fields produced by cellphones are possibly cancer-causing.

Kanagaratnam Lambotharan, MTN chief technology officer, disputes the claims. “LTE is a standard that is part of the evolution of 3G, which incorporates significantly increased data rates and better performance to enhance the mobile broadband experience.”

MTN, he says, ensures that everything from 2G to 3G and 4G/LTE adheres to all world safety benchmarks. “There’s no evidence to convince experts that exposure below the guidelines set carries any health risks, for adults or children.”

The WHO found no evidence that “the weak RF signals from base stations and wireless networks” cause adverse health effects, he says. - Saturday Star

How I see the above problem:

Mr Kanagaratnam Lambotharan, MTN chief technology officer, has no clue what LTE can actually do to living organisms, he is only interested rolling out new technology, as this is his job, and he is getting paid for that. He is NOT a medic or health advisor - as if the latter (right up to the Minister of Health) actually cared enough about THIS VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM !! — Just to get the FACTS straight here, before we dig further into this PROBLEM.
- Obviously there is no PROBLEM - as yet, the TECHNOLOGY is still in its starting holes …
However, let us just have a look at other TECHNOLOGIES which have made a huge impact on our lives, like the AUTO MOBILE !
Many years have passed since the very first car actually roamed the roads of Germany, now it is to be found (almost) everywhere on the globe - polluting the air1 where ever they go, almost like cellphone towers/masts and the RADIATION that goes with it.
- Please refer to more technical information at: 4G/LTE

Why are there still not many more Electric Cars on the roads already, as it is known for many years that exhaust fumes are toxic and are aggressively influencing the imbalance of the Carbon Emissions already in progress …
- Where have the Electric Cars gone, that where already on the roads? — Is this also a COVER-UP from the industry - the oil industry???

I don't even want to look into the direction of HEALTH here, as there are so many short comings that this article would never get finished.
- Please check the rest of the website for HEALTH RELATED ISSUES, starting at ILLNESSES.

Very little RESEARCH, OBSERVATIONS and LONG-TIME STUDIES on the new 4G/LTE has been done world-wide so far, as this is new TECHNOLOGY all together, however where this technology was implemented people are already suffering various health conditions!
Why can we not wait in South Africa - and not be bullied by the industry what is 'good' for us and SAFE and what is not! Sure the end user also dictates the market to an extent, but HEALTH & SAFETY should be the main aim at all cost, as this is very difficult to regain, when it is threatened at such a big scale and from all sides!
Please read what is written in our country's CONSTITUTION, about YOU RIGHTS to a SAFE ENVIRONMENT, to CLEAN AIR, CLEAN WATER and more …
- People, we have to stand together on this one and FIGHT FOR OUR DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS, else the related industry will just continue to rape us all over and over, without most people even noticing this …

TECHNOLOGY, yes — but not at all costs - especially when (y)our HEALTH & WELL-BEING depends on it and is degraded in anyway.

I am not accusing Mr Kanagaratnam Lambotharan in anyway - except for mis-representation (withholding the actual FACTS) …, but I am accusing the Authorities, of NEGLECTING our Health and Well-Being — the Minister of Health, the Minister of Environment, the Minister of Communications as well as the Minister of Technology and would kindly advise them to re-read the(ir/our) CONSTITUTION again and then act on it accordingly - before matters really get bad !!

In the meantime, let me I urge, let's re-phrase that - COMMAND all the above mentioned persons, to DO THEIR HOMEWORK and THEIR DUTY and at least read up the following:


This is ONLY THE BEGINNING …
