Woman feels the waves
Claims exposure to wireless radiation affects her health

Auteur: MICHELE MANDEL

She looks a little sheepish as she asks if you can please shut off your BlackBerry.

Veronica Ciandre lives in a shrinking world where she is now so painfully sensitive that any exposure to wireless radiation turns her body into a pulsating tuning fork.

And she lays the blame on her landlord, who rented out his roof for the installation of 10 cell phone towers just above her top floor apartment at 2 Regal Rd.

“It was like living in a slow cooking microwave oven for two months,” says Ciandre, 49, who has been couch surfing with her 14-year-old daughter ever since they had to flee their apartment in February. “It just felt like your cells were being fried. It was quite frightening.”

The single mom will be at a landlord and tenant hearing Wednesday to argue that by exposing her to so much radiation without her consent, she shouldn’t have to pay her $1,500 monthly rent from the time the towers were installed last December until she formally moved out in June.

Her case comes at a time when parents in Barrie argue that Wi-Fi in schools is making their children sick and scientists remain are divided as to whether electromagnetic radiation can harm your health.

“I loved my apartment for 12 years,” says the elegant, articulate woman. “It had the most incredible view of Toronto. There is not one reason in the world I wanted to move.”

But, Ciandre says, she had no choice.

Shortly after the towers went up — so close she could touch them with a broom from her balcony — she began having ringing in her ears. Then she developed a headache that lasted for two weeks, while her daughter broke out in strange rashes.

Nausea and dizziness followed, and electric shocks every time her body touched her walls, her bed, even the cats.

The worst, though was lying sleepless every night because her entire body was tingling.

“It felt like I was being plugged into an outlet,” she explains.

A former hairstylist for TV and movies, she now develops empowering workshops for schools and groups. While away on a three-day session up north in late January, she noticed all her symptoms disappeared.

Ciandre came home and began researching the effects of cell phone towers. When she told an environmental group about all the antennas six feet above her head, she was given chilling advice: “Get out of there,” they said. “If you care about you and your daughter’s health, you have to get out of there now.”

Within two days, they were gone.

She has withheld her rent ever since.

“They said I had to give them two months notice. But they didn’t give me two months notice when they put these things on my roof. They thought I was just paranoid and trying to get out of my rent, which is crazy talk.”

Her case, though, is anything but crazy.

Testifying on her behalf is Magda Havas, a Trent University professor who focuses on the hazards of electromagnetic exposure. Ciandre emailed her after coming across her research online. Within two weeks, the professor was in her apartment. “Her metre went off the scale,” she recalls.

Yet when Industry Canada measured the electromagnetic radiation, they told her it fell within “safe” levels.

“I know my body said differently,” she insists. “I’m not a hypochondriac. I’ve never been ill before.”

Ciandre believes her massive exposure has now left her electrosensitive so she can no longer be near cordless or mobile telephones or Wi-Fi networks. Her only sanctuary has been a friend’s basement where everything is unplugged at night and there are no wireless routers.

Before this happened to her, Ciandre admits she would have been skeptical as well.

But she’s since come to believe just because wireless technology is invisible, doesn’t mean it’s safe.

“It’s made to go through walls. Of course, it’s going through people. Why wouldn’t it be affecting us biologically?”
