Sleep Apnea & Alzheimer Reports Mar 17/14

DECEMBER 2012 – JANUARY 2013 www.nexusmagazine.com NEXUS • 27

Sleep apnoea may affect one in four adults. If left untreated, it can play a role in causing heart attack, brain fog, hypertension, chronic fatigue, pain syndromes, stroke and cancer. It may be the result of underlying problems including hiatal hernia and chemical or EMF sensitivity.

Disordered breathing, including the temporary cessation of breathing, during sleep or attempted sleep is called sleep apnoea (or apnea). We will see that as many as one out of four adults may have this usually undiagnosed but life-threatening condition. The seriousness of untreated sleep apnoea is indicated by its linkage to accidents, hypertension and heart disease, and in 2012 it was even linked to increased likelihood of cancer. It is also a probable causative factor in the pandemic of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia and myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). Thus, many people who seek out alternative practitioners may have sleep apnoea. It's not likely to be corrected by supplements. I have found it to be linked to other problems I have written about in NEXUS—including the hiatal hernia/vagus nerve imbalance syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) and electromagnetic field sensitivity (EMFS). This article explains the different types of sleep apnoea, how they are tested for, and mainstream and holistic types of treatment for it.

The Nature, Causes, Prevalence and Dangers of Sleep Apnoea

Possible symptoms of sleep apnoea include trouble going to or staying asleep, or being tired and unrefreshed upon awakening. Being tired or sleepy during the day—including having full-blown narcolepsy—snoring, and waking up gasping are other possible symptoms. It is a mistake to think that sleep apnoea only affects the elderly or middle aged or the obese.

There are two main types of sleep apnoea: obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and central sleep apnoea (CSA). A third type is their combination, called mixed sleep apnoea (MSD). Obstructive sleep apnoea refers to the closing off of part of the airways in the throat. Snoring is usually heard in sufferers of OSA. Snoring does not always occur, but a close-by snorer can have a decibel level exceeding that of a jet flying 100 feet overhead. The snorer will almost never be able to hear his/her own snoring, but the partner sure can! Many a marriage may have been prevented or terminated due to the decibel levels emitted by the snoring sleep apnoea sufferer and the partner's own ensuing inability to sleep. So, saving a marriage can be another reason to be tested and treated.

Central sleep apnoea refers to the brain not sufficiently innervating the muscles of respiration, which include the diaphragm and the abdominal and rib muscles. CSA may be caused by cardiac conditions, including the usually hidden PFO—the patent foramen ovale or hole in the heart that I have written about in NEXUS [see 18/03]. The PFO or other cardiovascular problem can lead to hypoperfusion of the brain. It is thought that many people with just OSA eventually also develop the central form.

Obstructive sleep apnoea can be treated with devices (CPAP or BiPAP) which breathe into sufferers, and with surgery, dental appliances and other methods. These other methods can include tongue muscle exercises and advanced energy balancing. Central sleep apnoea is treated via the breathing devices, especially BiPAP. Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) may be a manifestation of sleep apnoea—perhaps, more likely, CSA.

Sleep apnoea—by virtue of the low oxygen states induced by obstructive or central sleep apnoea—stresses the heart, raises the blood pressure, ages the heart more rapidly and can cause a heart attack at any time if the apnoeic event lasts long enough. Diminished sleep, especially the rapid eye movement (REM) fraction, leads to a suboptimally functioning brain, which can cause narcolepsy, fatigue, accidents, "mental illness" and other problems.

A 2002 study reported: "On the basis of the average of prevalence estimates from these studies of predominantly white men and women with mean BMI [body mass index] of 25 to 28, we estimate that roughly 1 of every 5 adults has at least mild OSA and 1 of every 15 has at least moderate OSA."1 This presumably refers to people in the USA.

A poll taken in the USA in 2005 by David M. Hiestand, MD, PhD, et al. led to the following results:
"Of the 1,506 respondents, 26% (31% of men and 21% of women) met the Berlin questionnaire
criteria indicating a high risk of OSA. The risk of OSA increased up to age 65 years. A significant
number of obese individuals (57%) were at high risk for OSA. Those whose Berlin questionnaire scores indicated a high risk for OSA were more likely to report subjective sleep problems, a negative impact of sleep on quality of life, and a chronic medical condition than those who were at lower risk. Conclusions: As many as one in four American adults could benefit from evaluation for OSA. Considering the serious adverse health and quality-of-life consequences of OSA, efforts to expedite diagnosis and treatment are indicated."

In 2012, a groundbreaking article noted that hypoxia (an inadequate supply of oxygen), which occurs in sleep apnoea, promotes angiogenesis. This is an increase in the vascularity that is associated with tumour growth. The article stated that a 4.8 times higher incidence of cancer mortality may thus be associated with sleep apnoea.3 Sleep apnoea also entails increased risk for stroke and diabetes.

Note that it appears that most studies or polls only looked for obstructive sleep apnoea and not central sleep apnoea. So the percentage, at least in the USA, may be even higher, and the physician-authors are probably being conservative as well. Thus the prevalence of all forms of sleep apnoea may be 25 per cent or more of adults in some countries.

So, sleep apnoea is pandemic in western society. It is a leading cause of fatigue, brain fatigue and rapid ageing. Predisposing factors for sleep apnoea include sinus disease, tonsillectomy, obesity, smoking, alcohol consumption and, as noted and in my opinion, the hiatal hernia syndrome and also MCS and EMFS. It is important to note that many quite thin people also can have sleep apnoea. I believe that additional factors can be causative as well, and they include hypothyroidism and infection with micro-organisms—such as the very small spirochetes that cause Lyme disease and other diseases. These may get into the brain or otherwise play a role here. A tendency towards having trigger points can play a role here as well. Sleeping on a memory foam mattress or overlay may help (after it has outgassed, for those with MCS). Of course, this works both ways. Sleep apnoea contributes to causing fibromyalgia and other pain syndromes.
The more problematic central sleep apnoea usually does not entail snoring. CSA may be more problematic because there may be less likelihood of the person's waking up during an apnoeic event, as the brain's signals are diminished with CSA—as opposed to OSA where a throat blockage occurs and the person usually awakens, sometimes gasping.
It sounds innocuous to say "she died peacefully in her sleep". But what if "she" had undiagnosed sleep apnoea and could have lived several more years? So if the testing or treatment seems problematic, or if you just don't envision this as a serious problem, imagine this. Someone is coming into your room up to 100 times an hour, and he goes towards you and places his hands on your throat and chokes you for 30 seconds or longer. Many people who undergo the sleep test are shocked to find that they have had serious apnoeic events up to 100 times an hour. What you feel as an inability to go to sleep is revealed during the test as numerous apnoeic events. So, envision ridding yourself of someone choking you many times each night.

What took place some eight years ago with a client can be instructive. The person had MCS and EMFS. She also reported strange feelings and difficulty during the night, awakening with great distress. I told her that this could well be sleep apnoea and that she should immediately schedule a test and get treatment if she had sleep apnoea. Her husband replied that she did not snore. To this, I replied that this could mean that she had the even more problematic central sleep apnoea, and again I implored her to get tested as soon as possible. She replied that she had MCS and EMFS, and it was too difficult. I nonetheless implored her again. She did not schedule any type of testing, and she died in her sleep just a few weeks later. She was in her forties.
Yes, both the testing and treatment can be difficult for someone with MCS and/or EMFS. Indeed, sensitivity to chemicals or EMF can be part of the cause of sleep apnoea. As far as chemicals are concerned, you may be reacting to fragrance, formaldehyde, mould or other things in the room or bed—both at home or at the sleep centre. Regarding EMF, you may be reacting to the AC current in the room or from nearby towers, Wi-Fi or even the coils in your mattress that can absorb and re-radiate radiowaves or microwaves.
The kindling effect may play a large role in sleep problems. Just looking at TV or computer monitor screens can lead to hyper brain states. Indeed, I have had clients report back, after I had tested them, that not only was their sleep better but their asthma or hypoglycaemia was better when they avoided TV and the Internet. Some people also have hyperacusis and must avoid sounds to feel and sleep better. Again, the PFO or other cardiovascular problem may be causing hypoperfusion in the brain. Also, allergic or porphyric reactions to foods such as wheat, sugar, caffeine or others can also cause hyper states in many people.

Testing for Sleep Apnoea

The testing of sleep apnoea is called polysomnography. The person reports to a sleep centre for 10 to 12 hours. After a briefing and orientation to the room, the subject is "wired up" with sensors.These sensors may be placed on the chest, legs (looking for restless leg syndrome), face and throat.Sensors on the head will be part of an electroencephalogram (EEG) to measure brain waves, and there will also be an electrocardiogram (ECG) run throughout the test.
Real-time monitoring and video recording also take place. Because of the cost, the distance from and the different environment of the sleep centres, various types of home testing are now available. Here, the various types of sensors and recording devices may monitor REM/deep sleep or chest or body movement. None of these devices can duplicate a full polysomnography nor include its immediate testing of the air machines and nasal or nasal/mouth cannulae, but they have home, cost, quickness and reusability advantages.

During the test, if the sleep technician sees—or the sensors indicate—significant sleep apnoea and/or concomitant medical problems, he or she may come into the room and put the subject on an air pressure machine.

When this occurs, the optimum settings for inhalation and exhalation can be gauged. Different types of nasal or nasal/mouth attachments can also be tested for efficacy. Sometimes, due to insufficient sleep during the test, a second test may be desired.

If both a sleep centre and home testing are not available to you in your region or country, the following can be used to help determine the possibility of your having sleep apnoea. Medical oxygen suppliers often can provide a recorded-pulse oximetry kit for home use. This test entails a pulse oximeter placed overnight on a fingertip and attached to a recorder. Episodes of hypoxia may be evidence of apnoeic events—especially if other heart and lung diseases have been ruled out. Pulse rate is also recorded this way. It may be a good idea for

sufferers of any chronic illness to purchase their own pulse oximeter, as these now sell for under $50—about one-tenth of what they were a dozen years ago when I first bought one for myself and my clients. The oximeter shines an LED light through the fingernail and detects the oxygen level on the haemoglobin of red blood cells. Overnight pulse oximetry, of course, cannot detect such things as insufficient REM sleep.

Air Pressure Devices

There is a very significant difference between the two types of air pressure machines available: CPAP and BiPAP.

CPAP denotes continuous positive airway pressure. CPAP devices have one continuous level, or one maximum level, of air pressure— presumably optimally determined from analysing the polysomno- graphy data. CPAP was invented in 1980 by Dr Colin Sullivan, a physician and SIDS researcher from Sydney, Australia. Prior to that, tracheotomy was actually employed for (severe) sleep apnoea.

BiPAP refers to bi-level positive airway pressure. The "bi- level" means that two different settings are used with these devices. The higher level refers to the maximum pressure that the machine can emit when it senses you are—or should be—breathing in, and the lower level is the device's maximum pressure when it senses that you are breathing out. The higher air pressure is needed to force air past blocked airways.

Some of these devices can sense if they need to emit their maximal pressures during inspiration and expiration, and they may emit a pressure less than their maxima if it is not needed at that moment.

Regarding EMF, you may be reacting to the AC current in the room or from nearby towers, Wi-Fi or even the coils in your mattress that can absorb and re-radiate radiowaves or microwaves.

Even in patients without sleep apnoea, BiPAP machines are now being used for treating chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia, asthma and heart failure.

The difference between CPAP and BiPAP devices is evident during the exhalation phase. With BiPAP, this pressure is significantly less than the pressure during inhalation, so the person does not have to breathe out against the higher pressure when it is not necessary to do so. The CPAP device has only the one level, though more recent CPAP devices may have some (sensor-controlled) variability capability. The point is that, for some or many, it can be an unnecessary struggle to breathe out against the machine. The elderly, asthmatics, the obese and people with other conditions can have great difficulty with CPAP. Indeed, it is hoped here that CPAP will eventually be eliminated and that everyone who tries these devices uses a BiPAP. It is estimated that about 50 per cent of people who try CPAP discontinue its use. Many of these people do not get other treatments and so are at great risk. Perhaps if only BiPAP were used, the 50 per cent figure would go down.

If you get a CPAP or BiPAP device, make sure it has a heated humidifier. With this, the air first passes over a container of water, which itself can be heated. This prevents dry and/or cold air from entering your lungs, which could cause problems. People with asthma or reactive airways disease (RAD) or other medical conditions will not do well with dry or cold air. Inexpensive bacterial and viral filters can also be added to the air hose line.

Dental Appliances and Surgical Options

Another possible treatment for OSA is the fitting of an oral appliance. Specially trained dentists can make a moulding and create a dental appliance that facilitates keeping the airway in the back of the throat open during sleep, thus preventing or reducing apnoeic events. However, this does not help with central sleep apnoea.

People with significant sinus disease may not be able to use CPAP or BiPAP devices.

I knew someone who had nasal surgery, and because of this, when she tried to use CPAP, the air went into her stomach, not her lungs, and she had a dental appliance fitted.

Advocates of the Buteyko system report that just taping the lips closed during sleep, to prevent low CO2 status (hypocapnia), can improve sleep.Surgery for OSD is also available,

and there are at least three variations: traditional (scalpel) surgery, radio wave surgery and laser surgery. The first is probably performed most often. The last, laser surgery, is probably the most expensive but is said to yield the best results and quickest recoveries— though insurance companies often only reimburse for the first option, and then only if the pressure devices cannot be used or tolerated. With the second and third options, radio waves and laser beams burn away some of the throat tissue.

Note that with all three types of throat surgery, some people have reported that their throat tissue grew back. I know that those who do neural therapy injections would not advise the massive creation of scar tissue, but I do know people who did well with laser surgery.

Hiatal Hernia and Hypoglycaemia Connections

There is clearly a hiatal hernia connection with sleep apnoea. I have had clients tell me that upon following my advice and elevating the top of their bed and/or sleeping on a wedge, their "insomnia" vanished or improved. Obviously, all the diet and lifestyle changes I noted in my NEXUS article would be a good idea here [see 18/04], as would doing the simple self-help corrections for the hernia, diaphragm and vagus nerve depicted in my book.5 A good time to do these corrections is before going to bed.

Now, one of the mainstays of hiatal hernia treatment is not to eat for several hours before going to sleep, but this can be problematic for those with reactive hypoglycaemia or porphyria.

If you get a CPAP or BiPAP device, make sure it has a heated humidifier. With this, the air first passes over a container of water, which itself can be heated. This prevents dry and/or cold air from entering your lungs...

Subject: update 2014-03-14 Fire risk exposed and grid insecurity hits Fox news
Date: Fri, 14 Mar 2014 23:58:45 -0700

1)   Re. fires risks: A member sent in photos of heavy condensation inside the $meter, and warnings in this email:

These pictures were taken of our meter on the 28th of Feb. and the meter had been installed about a month before that.  Take note of the condensation and water in the meter. As we all know electricity and water do not go together. I contacted the fire department and an electrician. B.C. Hydro was out within 2 hours and changed the meter.  There is definitely something wrong with these smart meters if they are forming condensation in them.

It would be wise to check your meters to make sure they are Ok and forward this on to your friends.

2)   Ongoing billing problems at BC Hydro. Some members are telling me that they have not received bills for some time. One person just got an overdue notice and he never received a bill – and hasn’t since December. Keep an eye out for your bill and for any unusual happenings. I don’t know whether Hydro is still having systems problems, is just incompetent, or is trying to cause problems. You can view your bill online at www.bchydro.com and if you want to see if it is based on estimated or actual consumption, click “view usage”, and then under “select viewing method” select “ consumption data table.”  This is a very useful table, showing average daily consumption by month going back for years, if you haven’t changed accounts. It also shows if the figures were estimated.

3)   Word about the insecurity of the grid is finally hitting popular media. The cost to secure the grid will be high and if the US govt. demands it, Hydro will have to do it. There is nothing in the business case for this (the “initial” billion $$) and the process will, by necessity, be ongoing as hackers/terrorists develop better ways of invading. I suggest we write to media outlets with the attached link. Below is a letter I’ve written to the “powers that be”.

4) Our data is extremely valuable, and as some insiders have said, utility companies could make more money from selling our data than from selling their product. New technology is being developed to better access and share this data:

“Two new energy data initiatives being launched this week illustrate how individual utilities and smart grid research consortia are helping to break the logjam on opening the flood of data from smart meters, smart grid devices and energy-aware homes”

5)      Now that some of us have the option to keep our analogs for the time-being at least, many have been asking me for information about how to protect it from Hydro/Corix, which, despite the Tariff Act making it illegal, is still attempting to steal them. There are some great examples of what some ingenious British Columbians have done at

http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.ca/html/?page_id=2001

6)   Interference with and by wireless devices is common. HAM operators have complained about $meters interfering, http://www.ve3ncq.ca/wordpress/?page_id=10 and because $meters are using unlicensed frequencies, this should not be allowed. I would encourage anyone who is experiencing such interference with your medical devices, wifi, television, telephone, etc. to complain formally to BC Hydro, BCUC, and to Industry Canada (please copy me at director@stopsmartmetersbc.ca with “interference” on the subject line).

Subject: Power Grid Attacks are happening

Dear Premier Clark and others,

Our power grid is inexorably linked with the US’s through old and inadequate infrastructure. Added to this is the yet-to-be-completed “smart” grid which adds another link.

For years now various experts have warned that having a wireless, computer-run electrical grid is unwise. These experts have been from the CIA, the FBI, US Homeland Security and even the US Congress – saying that it is not a matter of “if” the grid is attacked but when.

Finally popular media is sharing the concerns that when the grid goes down, we will be without power for a very long time. http://foxnewsinsider.com/2014/03/13/rpt-small-scale-attack-us-power-grid-could-cause-nationwide-blackout

The implications are beyond our comprehension – education, travel, manufacturing, farming, water and food distribution will all cease as we know it today. As former CIA Director James Woolsey said, we will return to the dark ages.

According to this new report, the US government will be requiring utilities to implement new and stricter security measures, at costs that could be substantial. Because British Columbia, and Canada, are vital providers of electricity to the US, by necessity BC Hydro will have to meet the US requirements.

By virtue of the fact that grid will be changing and evolving with new technology as it is developed (that is the nature of computer-driven systems) and each time a hacker finds a way in to the system, or an accident occurs, new security measures will be required on an on-going basis. More problems, more costs over which we will have no control.

None of these costs have been included in the initial billion dollar business case. The cost benefits of the basic program are questionable at best (as determined by the BC Utility Commission in 2008), and demonstrated in many jurisdictions, including Ontario. We cannot afford throwing additional good money after bad. This “smart” program has many problems, among which is the fact that the benefits do not pay and will not pay for the costs.

How do you plan on addressing these additional costs? Have you determined how much our rates will have to increase to provide the security needed to satisfy the US’s demands?

These are not rhetorical questions and I look forward to receiving your responses.

Yours truly,

Sharon Noble

Subject: update 2014-03-11 City of Laval expresses concern about civil and municipal rights
Date: Tue, 11 Mar 2014 23:17:37 -0700

1)   From a member on Galiano. Know that many areas of BC still are not connected to the grid so outages are not being reported. But even in Ontario, where the grid has been ‘fully functional’ for several years outages are not being reported by the smeters. To complete the grid means adding huge numbers of cell transmitters which will then be available for cell phones and wifi – in places where people have fought against cell towers for the sake of their health and property values. Organize your groups to fight more cell transmitters. Get the antennae siting consultation policies in place because these transmitters are licensed and must satisfy Ind. Can. criteria (which are few unless the municipal councils approve strict policies.)

Yet again, yesterday morning Galiano Island has had a power failure.  I telephoned Hydro to report the outage and apparently I was the first to call.  They were unaware there was an outage.  I said I thought the s?meters were supposedly able to immediately report an outage.  My next door neighbour who does have a s?meter telephoned me to ask if I had power.  When I said we seem to be having an outage every other week and more on sunny, no wind, days, she said her father told her that B.C. Hydro is waiting to have their tower receiver in place.  Their s?meters are not communicating with each other, and friends who live mid Island tell me that Hydro has been regularly reading their s?meter.

When I telephoned back to the Hydro outage line to ask about such a tower receiver, the person said she did not know anything about it but thought it a natiral progression if the meters were not communicating with each other.  We have fought against having a cell phone tower here for quite a few years and the possibility of a Hydro tower receiver beggars belief.

2)   Another billing “mistake”. You’d think with the high salaries being paid, someone would be in charge of billing, but it seems we are the ones who are responsible for making sure our bills are right.

http://globalnews.ca/news/1199770/watch-surrey-shelter-owner-stuck-with-a-14448-hydro-bill/

3)   The City of Laval, Quebec, (3rd largest city in Quebec with 400,000+)  has responded to a large group concerned about health and civil rights re. $meters, has responded by passing a resolution. From a March 11 press release:  ( the entire resolution is below, following the letters).

This resolution expresses unequivocally the importance of the City of Laval grants municipalities the duty " to provide their citizens with a healthy local environment, especially in the place where they live ." It emphasizes the " very large scientific argument " that citizens have to support their position. The resolution also reflects the desire of the City of Laval to see that its citizens are respected asking the Quebec government to "condemn the zeal of installers issuers' Hydro -Québec meters ."

Subject: installation of smart meter

Address:  XXXXXX

Owners:  XXXXX

Since sending out the email below, I have received a call from BC Hydro.  Being I, Bonnie Reid, changed the hydro account from my son's name, Spencer Reid to mine, I apparently gave up the rights to the grandfathered clause in being able to keep the analog meter at the above address.  Our son went away to school and plans to move back into the house but meanwhile I thought I'd have the account switched to my name to ensure the bills were paid.  I did not know I was giving up my homeowner's right to keep the analog meter.  No one told me and I didn't know to ask.  I told Hydro that this is my husband's and my house, we are the owners.  The young lady on the phone from Hydro told me point blank that the owners do not matter, just the changing of accounts with tenants.  "But this is MY house!"  "Doesn't matter."  So, as a homeowner of a half a million dollars worth of real estate purchased for our son's future health, I have NO RIGHTS.  Somehow that is not fair.  This property doesn't belong to a tenant.  It belongs to my husband and myself.

All of the above is simply about my rights or lack thereof..... doesn't even go into how I feel about the dangers of the smart meter.  Just to know we have no rights.  Surely this is the way Canada is going and it is sad.

 

I do not own a cell phone.  I do not have wireless in my home.  I made that choice.  Hydro took my choice away to not have a smart meter in the house we bought so our son would have a safe place to live.

From a fellow-smeter resister in Sedona, Arizona. I thought his letter so good that it is worth reading and sharing – perhaps with your MLA, city council, friends, etc.

Council members,

I see you are going to discuss the “smart” meter issue at your meeting this Wednesday.

With all the information you have received over the last year or so, including the excellent documentary, Take Back Your Power, I don't know what more I can say to convince you how important in so many ways this issue is, but I'll try.

By the way, speaking of Take Back Your Power, I have read several industry PR attempts at debunking it. The most they can come up with is stuff like 'we'd never lie to you', 'how dare anyone question us' and 'the producer himself admits he never talked us'. Do you know why producer Josh del Sol never talked to utilities? Because no utility would return his calls!

At the end of this letter I have reproduced an email I got from Larry Bragman, Vice-Mayor of Fairfax, California. You may find it insightful. I still think you have the power to forestall “smart” meters in Sedona by exercising your Public Nuisance Ordinance and by notifying APS that it will be enforced by Sedona police.

It is also within Mayor Adams' power to declare a local emergency.

I challenge all of you to draw a line and see if APS will cross it. I doubt they will. Negative publicity is something they avoid. You have power you do not know you have until you exercise it.

I will recap the reasons you should draw a line.

Health: There is a simple reason why so many suffer sleep disorders after “smart” meter installation.

When you sleep in a dark room the cryptochrome receptors in your eyes tell your pineal gland that there is no more light so it is now time to make melatonin. Melatonin helps you sleep and cleans your blood of free radicals, rejuvenating you. Microwaves are unnatural and man-made. The cryptochrome receptors have not adapted to them and probably never will. Microwaves penetrate the eyelids of a sleeping person and the cryptochrome receptors “see” or interpret the microwaves as light. A message is then sent to the pineal gland to stop producing melatonin because it is daylight now – except it isn't. No melatonin = lousy sleep = no blood cleansing = sickness.

I get calls from people who suffer from “smart” meters. Here's an example.

 

I had a call around last September from a young lady in Prescott Valley who had a “smart” meter on her bedroom wall about 3 feet from her head. Her previous house did not have a “smart” meter. Since moving into the new house, and for 8 months after, she had suffered symptoms of microwave sickness – optical migraines, memory loss and confusion, insomnia. Her doctor was clueless, thought it was all in her head and had suggested she go to a psychiatrist. Her co-worker is on my mailing list and so has an awareness about “smart” meters and suggested the young lady call me. Poor thing was so desperate and worried that maybe she really was crazy. I told her to call APS and get the “smart” meter taken off. And I also told her how to shield the “smart” meter from radiating into the bedroom in the meantime – which she did. She called me the next day to thank me for her first decent night's sleep in 8 months, but mostly she was so happy to know she wasn't crazy.

She was lucky. Think of how many people are suffering, don't know the cause and their doctors can't figure it out but probably just give them drugs because that's all they know to do.

I think some of you have been confused by so many studies, some saying one thing, some another. The real proof is in the pudding and this pudding is rotten. People really are getting sick.

When I first got into the “smart” meter issue in 2011, I admit I was skeptical of people's health issues. Not anymore. Very few of the injured even knew they had a “smart” meter or what one was. For many people it was a long, torturous and often expensive process of discovery.

The point is, these people did not get a “smart” meter then decide they were sick. Most of them did not want monetary compensation from their utilities; they just wanted the “smart” meter gone and their health back. It was only after the complete intransigence of the utilities that people have finally started lawsuits.

At Council's “smart” meter meeting last June, Council member John Martinez mentioned that his relatives in California had a “smart” meter and that no one was sick. To that I will add one word, “yet”.

Also, I had a relative who lived to age 76 on nothing but gin and cigarettes. Does that mean those are healthy?

Protect this community from “smart” meters or expect more ambulance calls and ill-health of many kinds, much of it undiagnosed and misdiagnosed. Perhaps you will even be a victim.

Privacy: APS denials do not change the fact that “smart” meters are surveillance devices. Read the Congressional Research Service's 45 page report, CRS Report for Congress, Prepared for Members and Committees of Congress, Smart Meter Data: Privacy and Cybersecurity here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/84773482/Smart-Meter-Data-Privacy-and-Cybersecurity-2-3-2012

I'll add that I was at an Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) meeting in which APS admitted they do not have the source codes for their “smart” meters. What that means is that APS cannot say with any certainty what data is being collected or who has access. As such, APS cannot make any true claims about confidentiality or privacy.

Atmospheric Manipulations! Mar 16/14

GEOENGINEERING – ATMOSPHERIC MANIPULATION - is THE most Critical Issue.

Cdsapi’s Added Comment:  Read this – http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/global-geoengineering-fueling-venus-syndrome if I haven’t been able to convince you that this deserves our immediate attention because:
1.  “Geoengineering” , Chemtrails, HAARP and the intentional, manipulated destruction of the atmosphere is THE MOST CRITICCAL ISSUE facing us today – eclipsing all others;

2.  the weird weather/climate is CREATED.

3.  the destruction of planet’s climate systems is intentional – and not a natural.

4.  this falls under secret “military operations”, using weather as a “Weapon of Mass Destruction”;

5. if this continues, and irreversible ‘cause and effect’ scenarios that can’t be stopped are set in motion, the ensuing chain reactions could render the planet Earth uninhabitable for all life.

If you value LIFE, join the FIGHT TO STOP this insanity – before it is too late.
These CRIMINALS must be brought to justice, and the technologies dismantled.

Step #1.  Inform yourself with the real facts.
Step #2.  ACT as though your life depends on it  -  because it does.

Global Geoengineering Fueling ‘Venus Syndrome’

February 27, 2013

What Is “Venus Syndrome”?

Venus syndrome” is not a metaphor, it is a scientific scenario.  The term should be self explanatory, but just to be clear, Venus syndrome is a scenario in which climate and atmospheric feedback loops are triggered that can’t be switched off.  Under this scenario, as greenhouse gasses build up, and cause planetary warming, yet more greenhouse gasses are released which causes still more warming.  This trajectory does not end in a balmy tropical resort Earth, but rather a planet that is closer to hell.  Like Venus, Earth would become a pressure cooking inferno with virtually no life.

There are a great many contributing factors already pushing Earth toward this scenario, but one stands out above the rest.  Based on all available data, if the ongoing global geoengineering programs are allowed to continue, “Venus syndrome” will be the likely end result for our planet, and sooner than almost any can imagine.

Any that confuse this information with the rhetoric and hypocrisy of Al Gore and his carbon credit scams is making a mistake.  What we face is real and has little to do with the long list of self proclaimed “environmentalists” and “environmental” groups who have all chosen to turn a blind eye to the most dire and immediate challenge faced by all life on Earth short of nuclear catastrophe, global aerosol geoengineering.

What Is Tilting Things So Far Out Of Balance?

Though there are many contributing factors which are negatively effecting Earth’s natural systems at this time, based on all available data one outweighs all others combined,  global weather modification/geoengineering programs.

GCR RV & What Government? Updates Mar 15/14

What Kind of Government Do You Want?

Here's little something to look at during this political season. This ought to make a person think one more time before walking into the voting booth. This country is returning to it's constitution, as a part of this money shift.

Further to our Notice of Redemptions, the US Treasury, China Treasury, IMF, World Bank and others have, as of yesterday, agreed on the timings of the release of all funds in respect of the historic bond redemptions and the RV of the Dinar and Vietnamese dong.

The global reset (GR) is directly tied to these events, and because of the proximity of the GR which is scheduled for this month after March 17, 2014, all USD wire transfers and transactions are on hold, inclusive of all Project funding's that were scheduled for this week.

This decision is based very simply on the advent of the US Treasury Reserve Note (new symbol TRN, or the new US Dollar) which is replacing the USD (the Federal Reserve Note (FRN)). The announcement of the new US TRN and its exchange rate is scheduled for after March 17.

All funds and transfers in USD have been effectively frozen globally for this reason, and the transfers will continue after March 17 in the new US TRNs. All completed transactions, and pending transactions are affected by this decision. No USD money transfers will be allowed at this time until the changeover.

All historic bond transactions, whether straight redemptions or through the private placement programs with the Tier 1 traders, are similarly affected.

While this news is not the best news for many that were expecting their payments this week, the GR and the payments in the new US dollar were known to be coming this month, and the global freeze on such payments will ultimately be for the benefit of our Humanity when payments are made in the new Basel III compliant currency.

The GR signals the deployment and implementation of the new financial system that is Basel III compliant, and will be the new standard globally. All delays are temporary at this time.

New pricing for the historic bonds will be posted shortly as the IMF and the Chinese Family are going over these items at the moment.
