Massachusetts: Update on Bill S.2080 Seeking to Provide Medical Training on Wireless-Related Issues and Insurance Coverage

Update on Massachusetts Bill S.2080 Seeking to Provide Medical Training on Wireless-Related Issues and Insurance Coverage
by Cece Doucette, Technology Safety Educator, 30 November 2017

Thank you to everyone who has sent in testimony for the MA EMF Bills. Yesterday went well at the MA State House hearing for the bill to provide EMF medical training and insurance coverage. For many bills, the legislators hear testimony then simply call up the next testifier. After my testimony, and Dr. Lisa Nagy, Government Liaison for the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, they asked questions. I am very grateful to Dr. Nagy for clearing her schedule to be there, and also to parents Keith Marciniak and Laura Melanson for sharing their journeys into EMFs.

Here are our testimonies, in the order presented:

My testimony covers the annual cost of environmental toxins, insurers excluding coverage for EMF harm which could leave the Commonwealth liable for damages, the Fay School lawsuit, the EUROPAEM EMF medical guidelines, Wireless Education training, and the new Generation Zapped film being screened throughout the Commonwealth.



Keith Marciniak, parent and software engineer, details how his nephew's insomnia lead him to discover wireless radiation is hazardous. He shares his disappointment that his schools, the DESE and DPH could not offer assurances that exposure in schools is safe, yet we continue to expose our collective children, and our medical teams are not yet trained to recognize or treat the ensuing illnesses.

Dr. Lisa Nagy, Government Liaison for the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, discusses the illnesses she herself experienced from environmental toxins including EMFs, the patients she sees today, as well as treatments that all medical practitioners should be trained on.

Laura Melanson, parent and occupational therapist, details how a building biologist identified high levels of electromagnetic radiation in her home from the cell phone, DECT phone, iPad, router and other wireless devices. She discusses how neither her primary care physician nor her daughter's pediatrician new about EMFs nor had they heard of the U.S. National Toxicology program finding EMFs cause brain cancer and heart tumors.

Please use these videos as you see fit, perhaps with your own legislators, local public servants, media and loved ones.

We would still be very grateful if you haven't yet had time to send in testimony for all of the MA EMF bills, if you could please do so. I've attached templates for the four committees tasked with the bills, simply replace the items in red with your own information and send in to the list given. I'd appreciate being cc:d so I can continue to learn and work toward solutions.

Thanks, as ever, for your time and consideration.
