It was not surprising to see the lack of understanding about microwave radiation at the community consultation for the proposed wi-fi in Mullumbimby last Wednesday night. Many today, it seems, are too distracted with what it is doing for them to be interested in forming an understanding about what it is doing to them. This for many would be an inconvenient truth. The proponents have suggested they would install a low-powered system, as if this would have less impact on health. According to British microwave scientist Barrie Trower, it makes no difference whether it is low powered or not. The effects are cumulative and the same; it just takes longer.

This is why low-powered microwaves are used in stealth warfare. You don’t know you are being attacked until it is too late.

It is these same microwaves used in wi-fi in schools today and what is not understood is that children absorb ten times the amount of radiation as adults. This is all detailed in Wi-Fi – A Thalidomide in the Making, a just-released report by Barrie Trower, which can be downloaded at mullumwifi.com in the media section. Here it details the genetic damage that is being done to present and future generations.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Barrie Trower is the “Lord” Monkton of Wi fi and should not be used as an authority in this debate.
    Beware of the tin hat brigade and stop giving them a forum for misinformation..

  2. To be credible, “jaybuoy” should use his real name. Instead of proffering trite self-gratifying remarks, he could engage in a genuine dialogue and attempt to prove his views by referencing scientific papers. To assert or infer that EMR imposes no health risks is absolutley false and misleading. I wish it were true myself, but it’s not.

    If anyone here doubts this, have a look at the linked research documents in the website below. I challenge “jaybuoy” to intellegently refute any of them. If he can’t, why should anyone listen to him?


    Major countries worldwide are banning applications of wirless technologies based upon their own conservative assessments. They took a closer look and didn’t like what they saw. Maybe our skeptic friend knows better, but I doubt it. Don’t believe anyone. Find out for yourself. It’s your health at stake.

  3. After prolonged usage(of wi fi) one might forget what it is like to be naturally relaxed and at peace, and then go seeking it in all the wrong places. Hopefully, Mullumbimby won’t be one of them. …. this is a quote from the science section of the http://www.mullumwifi.com website which is about as anti science as you can get..

  4. I can see “jaybuoy” has an unnatural attraction to humor. He picked up on the only funny in the whole website. If he had looked further, he would have found scientific references to mental disorders caused by exposure to microwaves. Well, at least he is looking. Sadly, this is the best he has come up with so far.

  5. There appears to be a loose perception that public Wi-Fi attracts business. According to one study, what it may actually do is energetically induce anxiety and the coveted “buying reflex”. Not exactly the right formula for relaxed afternoon shopping. On the other hand, it could simply drive patrons elsewhere as awareness of its possible side-effects grows. It is also debatable whether preoccupation with personal electronic devices “brings the community together”, as some would have us believe….
    the buying reflex… more like a loosely percieved w******** reflex in the case of this web site…
