LETTERS: Presence of EMR a serious discomfort

I used to make a point of shopping in Sidney, now I don’t.

I used to make a point of shopping in Sidney, now I don’t.

The Town and many businesses have chosen to supply wifi and other Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) to every one that enters the town.

For me, the relatively high levels in the downtown core causes headaches. Others may not recognise the association, they just know they are uncomfortable and avoid the places of discomfort. Brentwood Bay, with its saturation from wifi, is even worse.

For some strange reason some think their “right” to text message someone trumps people’s right to well being.

The science to support the need for radiation levels at far below the amount found in Sidney for health reasons has been well proven — repeatedly proven  in numerous, highly-creditable scientific journals. It has been known for decades that low levels of radiation are the cause of many health issues.
