Get Wired 2015 – Guy Hudson – Electromagnetic Life

This video is from the Get Wired 2015 conference and features Guy Hudson – Electromagnetic Life/Are we made of music?

The GetWired 2015 conference was sponsored by Beneficial Environments and was a response to concerns about the proliferation of wifi and mobile phone technologies.

The conference objective was to find and promote solutions to the problems arising both in terms of how to protect and shield vulnerable groups such as children and the aged but also how to encourage new safer products to be made available.   In contrast to many conferences focusing on the health effects, we have looked at solutions to the problem of widespread electrosensitivity and increasing electromagnetic pollution.

Are cell phones and wifi signals toxic?

Are cell phones and wifi signals toxic? This question was posed by celebrity A-lister Gwyneth Paltrow on her website Goop.

It’s almost impossible to remember a time without smartphones, which makes it equally easy to forget that the technology is still relatively new, with safety requirements that, for the most part, are generally untested. The scientific community’s rumblings about brain cancer and the new-to-us affliction “electro-sensitivity” are worth exploring, at the very least, so we tapped three experts in the field—Dr. David Carpenter, Ann Louise Gittleman, and Devra Davis—to help us understand the complicated and messy world of cell phone and WiFi safety.

Gwyneth Paltrow: Are cell phones and wifi signals toxic

As predicted by Professor Victor Newman here – fashion and celebrities will play their part as the world adjusts to the new reality of lost electro-innocence.  We saw another celebrity last year, Noel Edmonds making the headlines with his views on Electrosmog.

The answer to Gwyneth Paltrow’s question is almost certainly yes as more and more research is showing this to be the case.

At Beneficial Environments we have solutions to reduce this exposure to electromagnetic pollution we can also perform an electromagnetic survey of your home, office or clinic.

This is the first video release from Get Wired 2015.
Get Wired 2015 was organised in association with Stop Smart Meters! UK.
Professor Victor Newman, the conference chair, is an expert in motivating organisations to innovate.  He speaks about how new, safer technologies will become available to us all.  He sees that fashionable new products will play their part as the world adjusts to the new reality of lost electro-innocence.
We do hope you enjoy his talk about how organisations will respond to the need to reduce electromagnetic pollution.

EMF, Electrosmog and Electrosensitivity

A 2015 Conference on EMF, Electrosmog and Electrosensitivity

Sunday 1st November 2015 9.30am – 4pm near Haywards Heath, Sussex

Conference Agenda and Speaker details

Following the success of the Get Wired conference of 2013, we are following up with a one day conference in
Bolney, West Sussex.  This will be an excellent opportunity to hear about the latest developments in EMF science and to meet others who are concerned with this issue.

The venue for Get Wired 2015 is the Rawson Hall in Bolney, West Sussex.

For delegates that are ES: The venue has been selected for its low electrosmog levels and further tailored to create a low electrosmog environment.

The facility benefits from a very low level of EMF pollution with no Wi-Fi or DECT cordless phones present.  We will be ensuring that any cell phones and other mobile equipment will be switchedoff during the event.  The nearest cell tower is 600 meters away and cannot be detected with an Acoustimeter. There is no wifi nor cordless phones. The lighting will be modified to reduce electrosmog. All mobile phones must be switched off.

The Audio-visual equipment will all be wired (no radio microphones) and kept to a minimum – we will have a laptop, a projector and 4 wired speakers connected to 2 wired microphones. There will be 2 video cameras recordign the event. We will reserve seating for delegates who wish to keep away from the electronics.

We hope to offer an ES recovery area for those who find travelling a problem.

To full address for the venue is:

Rawson Hall
The Street
Bolney,
W Sussex, RH17 5PF

Speaker line-up and lecture titles are available on the Conference website.

Electrosmog Conference

Get Wired Too:  An Electrosmog Conference in Sussex on Sunday 1st November

Beneficial Environments and Stop Smart Meters are jointly hosting an electrosmog conference in Bolney, near Haywards Heath on Sunday 1st November.  Join us for a day of presentations and expert panel discussions with scientists, medical doctors, academics and researchers, on the implications of wireless technology and electro-pollution and the steps you can take to protect yourself and your family.

Why I believe that attending Get Wired 2015 is so important and why its focus is right for its time — it is about how we get to safer, healthier living.  By our conference chair, Prof. Victor Newman PhD

As an innovation specialist with a personal interest in the health risks associated with ‘electrosmog’, it is obvious to me that playing adversarial victim games is unlikely to deliver the systemic change that we require.  And, in an age of increasing digital connectivity, it is also obvious that this change must engage telecoms and electronics companies in making safer products.  Change in both respects is both necessary and inevitable.

Corporate politics tends toward investing in expensive, defensive behaviours to maintain market share; by attacking critics instead of by innovating, by generating doubt over science instead of by creating competitive advantage through new, safer and superior products.  The present path is one of ignorance, denial and short-termism; whilst the path we need to take involves informed, long-term thinking and responsible, leadership.

It could be that the fear of class action lawsuits destroying shareholder value in companies and national prestige is holding much of the industry back.  It could be that for a long time, directors at Volkswagon — at the highest level — felt that they had no choice but to continue their emissions test charade — because to take responsibility, to admit to it and to take action would expose them to charges of complicity, personal liability and consequences.

And so our strategy vis-a-vis artificial EMF pollution now, must be to help these industrial turkeys adopt intelligent and enlightened forms of self-interest — by helping them to vote for a new kind of Christmas, and to collaborate by becoming part of the solution.  To do otherwise is to hold onto an unsustainable, irresponsible and obsolete past, the grip on which becomes weaker with every new, peer-reviewed scientific journal paper.

We must demand, inform, and help, industry to take the initiative, and to change current product standards — without waiting to be forced by statute or scandal.  There is simply too much at stake.

I hope you can come.

Tickets are £20 or £10 if you have a low income.  Lunch is an optional extra at £10 each.  It will be vegan curries and salads provided by Mama Ghanoush of Hurstpierpoint.
