The International Holistic Cancer Symposium coming up in Auckland on March 24-25m 2018 includes presentations on many aspects of cancer prevention and treatment.
One of the presentations will be by Katherine Smith whose talk will focus on electromagnetic radiation (EMR) and health with special reference to cancer. Her presentation will also discuss ways to use modern technology more safely to reduce the risks of cancer (and other adverse health effects) associated with some products such as cell phones.
Professor Olle Johansson (who is a neuroscientist and expert on electrohypersensitivity) is talking at a FREE summit on Alzheimer’s and dementia that is coming up soon.
One of the unfortunate truths of our times is that exposure to non-ionising microwave radiation (the type of radiation produced by cell phones, cordless phones and smart meters) can harm the brain and potentially lead to neurodegenerative disease.
That’s the bad news.
The good news is that if you want to keep your brain in good working order there are lots of things you can do such as avoid the use of mobile and cordless phones and say no to a smart meter.
Plus the FREE online summit also has information about treatments for dementia that you might not otherwise learn about. (Yes, there are treatments for some types of dementia; unfortunately many doctors are not up to date with them.)
You can register for the summit at this link:

Smart meters are not compulsory in NZ
Please note that while some electricity company staff claim that smart meters are compulsory or some sort of government requirement it is NOT compulsory to have a smart meter in NZ.
Please note that it seems to be quite common for smart meters to be installed without prior notification, so if you still have an analogue meter and want to keep it, it would be prudent to take the above steps to prevent a smart meter installation NOW.

Everyone who has ever been to Whangarei for more than a day or two knows that the place to be on Saturday morning is the amazing Whangarei Famers market where you can buy great fresh produce and other treats grown and farmed in Northland.
It’s the perfect place for a smart meter education campaign to reach lots of people.
Below you can see photos of the Whangarei activists’ new initiative:
The eye-catching signs (some of which had previously been on display in Betty Hooper’s garden) allowed people to engage with the message in their own time and became a focus of interest and discussion.
The photos of the smart meter education campaign at Whangarei Farmers’ Market were taken on February 27, 2016.

The text of the controversial TPPA has finally been made public. previously leaked text suggests that the TPPA could erode the NZ government’s ability to protect public health, worker’s rights and the environment.
This website has previously included information about how the TPPA may impact on the smart meter situation which you can read at the link below.
Thanks to hard working local volunteers there will be a special community screening of the award winning smart meter documentary Take Back Your Power on Monday 19 October at the Lindauer Restaurant (50 Vogel St) in Woodville starting a 7 PM.
If you have friends or family in this area, please let them know about this event. Thank you.
The smart meter issue was front page of the Waitaki Herald today with the headline “Smart Meter Grumble Grows”.
The story relates how a team of Oamaru residents who have been organising public meetings* in the town ahead of a planned roll out of smart meters by Meridian have called for a moratorium on smart meters.
Perhaps predictably, a spokesperson for an electricity company was qu0ted as saying that there was “no evidence” to support concern about adverse health effects from smart meters.
Today’s Otago Daily Times features an article with the headline “Smart meter refusal urged”. The article discusses a public meeting that was held in Oamaru in which the potential adverse health effects of smart meters were discussed. Rob Hutchins from the Electro-sensitivity Trust chaired the meeting.
A special community screening of the award-winning smart meter documentary Take Back Your Power has been organised by a volunteer in Dunedin.
The details for the screening are as follows:
DATE: Saturday June 20th
VENUE: The Pioneer Hall, 45 George St, Port Chalmers, Dunedin.
The screening is free however, if you would like to bring a donation that can be passed along to the producer of Take Back Your Power this would be appreciated.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions about smart meters after the screening.
Please let friends and family in Dunedin know about the screening (such as by sharing this link on your Facebook page, if you have one) so that they can plan to attend. Thank you.
