SDSU Brain Cancer Cluster and Smart Meter Dangers

I lost my beautiful young son to Glioblastoma Multiforme brain cancer in October 2008.

A Warning for all folks in California and the Nation!  I lost my beautiful, Young Son from Glioblastoma Multiforme brain cancer in October 2008.  My Son had attended SDSU ( San Diego State University ) and was working and living in San Diego at the time of diagnosis.  Dr. Vrijish Tantuwaya ( Poway, Neurosurgeon ) told the family that his brain tumor was caused by a cell phone.  Dr. Richard Marschke ( Oncologist in the Colorado area ) told the family that this was," Not genetic."

August 7, 2009 while at home in CO., and approximately 9 months after my Son's death, I found articles and a video about a - Brain Cancer Cluster on the SDSU San Diego Campus.  My Son is the graduate student mentioned in these, and I'll put them below.  I immediately started to contact the SDSU Administration and found this futile.  I then drove to San Diego staying the month of October 2009.  I met with a couple of Professors off campus for meetings.  Both Professors told me that my Son spent long hours in Nasatir Hall, room 131.  This is the building area that most of the brain cancer victims were located.  My Son was a TA for Nancy Speckmann and would be in this building and room long hours grading papers, meeting students and studying on weekends.

After arriving back home the SDSU Administration sent me an - Epidemiological Report written by Dr. Thomas Mack.  3rd Paragraph of this report he mentions that he has," No known knowledge of chemical or radiation concerns, and therefore are none."  I e-mailed Dr. Mack and he called me at home.  I asked him about a specific HUGE cell tower directly outside of Nasatir Hall.  Dr. Mack denied this could be the cause and brushed this notion off rather quickly.  I then told him of everyones concerns.  He said," They should be concerned."  This comment made me furious and made absolutely no sense!!  Because of Dr. Mack's report the SDSU Administration will not conduct a toxicology study.  The Professors requested one and were denied.  I have requested one on several ocassions, never receiving a response.  I contacted the Governors office and area Representative Marti Emerald.  Both sent me back to SDSU.

I decided to look into this cell tower on my own.  It is a HPWREN - High Performance Wireless Research and Educational Network, a Backbone Node to the UCSD Supercomputer Center in San Diego.  It is also GWEN GSI - Ground Wave Emergency Network, with emissions known to hug the ground. Nasatir Hall room 131 is located on the bottom 1st floor of a 3 story building.  There are 2 HPWREN cell towers on campus.  One on top of the Communications Building ( which towers above Nasatir Hall ) and one on top of the KPBS News Station on campus.  Both are located at the highest points on campus.  These Backbone Nodes are connected via the Lambda Rail or Tera Grid - SMART GRID.  It is the engineers and scientists behind this grid developing Smart or AMI meters.  These are on many college campuses across the U.S., and other Countries.

                                       SDSU BRAIN CANCER VICTIMS:

RICH FARVER  - my Son, diagnosed and died October 11, 2008, 1 week after his 29th Birthday/ Nasatir Hall, room 131.  Lived in the Ocean Beach area.

LOU TERRELL - diagnosed with Primary Brain Lymphoma ( Brain Cancer ), 2008/ Nasatir Hall, room next to 131.  San Diego County

RICHARD FUNSTON - diagnosed and died from GBM Brain Cancer, June 19, 2008/ Nasatir Hall, room 131.  San Diego County

DWIGHT ANDERSON  - diagnosed and died from Different Form of Cancer, ?/Nasatir Hall, room 131.  I believe La Mesa County?

MS. LAUREL AMTOWER - diagnosed with GBM Brain Cancer, November 2009, died August 29, 2010/ Arts & Letters Building, right next to Nasatir Hall.  Parents live in Rancho Santa Fe, or San Diego County

MRS. KATHY O'HARA - diagnosed with GBM Brain Cancer, May 2008/ KPBS News Station on campus.  Ocean Beach area.

RICHARD FUNSTON - diagnosed with GBM Brain Cancer and died in 1993 with cell tower present and taken down in 1995 to once again, be replaced/ Nasatir Hall, room 131.  San Diego County








After the death of Ms. Laurel Amtower on August 29, 2010, I contacted San Diego NBC Producer Paul Kruger.  Paul was interested in doing a story and wanted me to send him my information.  Silence.  A reporter from the - San Diego Tribune called me at home.  This gentleman ( who would not reveal his name ) told me that this story would," Never get out in San Diego, because of money." 

My Son exhibited several symptoms I can now associate with - Electro Sensitivity Symptoms.  Headaches, Nausea, Endrocrine Problems ( excessive underarm sweating which mysteriously disappeared after leaving SDSU ), Memory or Concentration Problems.  My Son was applying for Law School in the San Diego area at the time of diagnosis.  I recall a conversation.  My Son said," Mom, I don't know if I can make it through Law School."  I asked,"Why?"  He replied," I cannot seem to remember things."  Sinus Problems ( daily nose bleeds ), EXTREME Fatigue, to name a few.  These symptoms are REAL and should not be taken lightly!  This story was instrumental in the WHO - World Health Organizations Classification for Non-Ionizing radiation changed to a Class 2B carcinogen same as DDT and Lead, may 2011.  This Classification was VERY close to being a Class 2A carcinogen!!

Non-Ionizing Radiation - WiFi, Smart Meters, cell phones, cell towers emit radiation that damages cells or DNA ACCUMULATIVELY!  The more received, the more damage.

Ionizing Radiation - XRays, damage cells or DNA instantly.

This is such a tragic loss, a beloved young man who was working on his Master's Degree at SDSU (San Diego State University), who became part of a cancer cluster that may well continue to add victims to. His decision to attend SDSU was a fatal error that shows how excessive RF radiation can KILL. SDSU, of course, continues to deny it, but have stopped the use of the top floor that this young man frequented, as they do know it is dangerous. I have spoken at length with this mother and am appalled at the horrific experience and her family's loss. In addition, it is appalling that others are still being exposed, which is bothering this mother tremendously. www.electrosmogprevention.org

BREAKING NEWS!!!! The Zombie apocalypse could be upon us, RF waves can return people from the grave!!!! Richard Funston died in 1993 THEN RETURNED to die again in 2008!! Coincidence? I think not.

Mrs Brinchman, can you come up with any stats that show an increased rate of brain cancer among wireless technicians?

Where is this Nasatir Hall? I want to take my monitoring equipment there and take some field strength measurements.

If you read a book by B Blake Levitt, (called Electromagnetic Fields), you will find a summary of most of the available research on the effects of wireless radiation at the time it was written. Many of the studies came about as a result of the effects on radar workers in world war II. (Radar, radio frequency, and microwave frequency are all overlapping categories.) Since then, much research on the effects of electromagnetic radiation has been compiled in the bioinitative report, which is available online. (for free in teh complete version.) Henry Lai, one of the many experts who wrote this report, has done studies showing the effects of radiofreqency and cell phone radiation on living cells, including cell death and increased DNA breaks. He was quoted in a newspaper article as saying that the pressure not to publish his results was pretty impressive. There may not be as many independently funded studies of the effects of wireless radiation as a result of this kind of pressure. Studies supported by those with a vested interest in there being no health effects of wireless radiation consistently show no effects. (although even the interphone study showed an increased risk of glioma in those who used a cell phone for extended periods of time. this detail was buried in the data and not part of the official conclusion of the study.) There are Israeli studies that have found increased risk of brain tumors in those more exposed to cell phone radiation.

I know Virginia Farver and you can take everything she has stated to the bank! You can thank women like her for exposing the truth about wireless technology that in the future may save lives and injury to untold thousands. Thanks Virginia.

There's always a kevin, clueless beyond any comprehension and to make zombie jokes about the death of another human and ignore all facts cited by his own ARMY, NAVY, FDA, EPA and 1000's of studies... YOU are the zombie Kevin... http://bcfreedom.wordpress.com/2012/09/24/death-lies-and-mutations-what-the-military-kept-from-the-public-on-microwave-radiation/ http://bcfreedom.wordpress.com/2012/10/15/death-lies-and-mutations-what-the-military-kept-from-the-public-on-microwave-radiation-part-2/

Brian, please explain to me how Richard Funston( last on list) who died in 1993 returned to then die again in 2008( third on list) if he wasn't a zombie? There's always a Brian and a Compassionate Texans talking about comprehension......
