So I hit a new low. I was thrown out of a Taco Bell. Yes, I've been thrown out of better places. It had nothing to do with Naomi nor autism. (Well, sort of, but only very indirectly.) I guess it serves me right for eating at Taco Bell. Maybe I should have let this go, but I just couldn't. The letter should speak for itself.

This is a very important topic, worthy of research and consideration now that everything is going wireless:
Register for this Collaborative for Health and the Environment conference call Tuesday at 4pm EST with Martha Herbert, MD from Harvard Medical School and the Transcend Research Lab at Mass General (autism focus), and Cindy Sage, authors of the recent papers showing a potential EMF-Autism connection. This is important work that essentially shows that the physiological changes in autism and those from EMF are 'remarkably similar'. They suggest autism's behavioral and sensory processing difficulties may be SECONDARY effects from the physiological effects, and that removing EMF may halt the interference in natural repair processes from the EMF, creating the physiological and thus behavioral effects. There are over 800 genetic 'associations' with autism but never have they found a genetic mechanism of action. This new work is VERY IMPORTANT and deserves our close and continued attention. Join the call by Registering with Collaborative for Health and the Environment now at the link below. http://www.healthandenvironment.org/wg_calls/13091
Cindy Sage is an environmental consultant and public policy researcher specializing in EMF issues since 1982. She has provided professional consulting services to cities, counties, states and a national EMF policy group on the issue of EMF policy and prudent avoidance. Ms. Sage has numerous publications and invited presentations in the areas of EMF public policy, public perception, land use planning and computer modeling of EMF, real property impacts from transmission lines, and remediation of high field environments.
Dr. Martha Herbert, MD, is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, a Pediatric Neurologist at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, and an affiliate of the Harvard-MIT-MGH Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, where she is director of the TRANSCEND Research Program (Treatment Research and Neuroscience Evaluation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders). Her main research interests are in addressing autism as a “dynamic encephalopathy” (something that can change) rather than a “static encephalopathy” (something that is fixed for life) and in how environmental vulnerability affects brain and body health and function.
The call will be moderated by Antoinette Stein, Coordinator, CHE EMF Working Group. Michael Lerner, President, Commonweal, will provide opening remarks.
The call will last one hour and will be recorded for archival purposes.
