ADVERSE HEALTH EFFECTS OF 5G MOBILE NETWORKING TECHNOLOGY UNDER REAL-LIFE CONDITIONS

ADVERSE HEALTH EFFECTS OF 5G MOBILE NETWORKING TECHNOLOGY UNDER REAL-LIFE CONDITIONS

Highlights

Identifies wide-spectrum of adverse health effects of non-ionizing non-visible radiation

Most laboratory experiments were not designed to identify the more severe adverse effects reflective of real-life conditions

Many experiments do not include the real-life pulsing and modulation of the carrier signal

Vast majority of experiments do not account for synergistic adverse effects of other toxic stimuli with wireless radiation

5 G mobile networking technology will affect not only the skin and eyes, but will have adverse systemic effects as well

Abstract

This article identifies adverse effects of non-ionizing non-visible radiation (hereafter called wireless radiation) reported in the premier biomedical literature. It emphasizes that most of the laboratory experiments conducted to date are not designed to identify the more severe adverse effects reflective of the real-life operating environment in which wireless radiation systems operate. Many experiments do not include pulsing and modulation of the carrier signal. The vast majority do not account for synergistic adverse effects of other toxic stimuli (such as chemical and biological) acting in concert with the wireless radiation. This article also presents evidence that the nascent 5 G mobile networking technology will affect not only the skin and eyes, as commonly believed, but will have adverse systemic effects as well.

New ICNIRP Guidelines… nothing really new… just the same stonewalling…

From the blog of Dariusz Leszczynski: Excerpt: New ICNIRP Guidelines will be published, any moment now, in the Health Physics journal. However, for already several months it is known what these new ICNIRP Guidelines will be…Interestingly and importantly, ICNIRP dismisses completely:existence and significance of non-thermal effects, the existence of the risk of cancer in long term avid users of mobile phones, and IARC’s classification of RF as a possible human carcinogen (IARC review of science was not included in list of science reviews used by ICNIRP in preparation of the new guidelines)

Virginia residents – call to action

Virginia residents – call to action

Greetings!
 
Attention Virginians:  The State Corporation Commission is now considering Dominion Energy Virginia’s “grid transformation” plan.   This plan includes full deployment installation of smart meters throughout Dominion’s service territory in the state.
Presently there are about 450,000 smart meters at residences and businesses in portions of the electric utility’s Virginia territory.   The smart meters emit radio frequency radiation.   According to Dominion Energy’s website, they communicate using “radio frequency mesh technology” and a “secure cellular network.”

See the State Corporation Commission’s press release on the timetable for this month’s review of Dominion’s proposal, which includes information on Dominion Energy Virginia’s proposed opt-out fees.  If approved by the SCC as proposed, the ongoing monthly opt-out fee would be $29.20, after payment of a higher initial opt-out set up fee.
The SCC will hold a public hearing on January 27 in Richmond, Va., and set a January 21 due date for written comments from the public. The Office of the Attorney General of Virginia represents Virginia consumers in utility regulatory cases such as this and one way Virginia residents can speak up is to contact them with concerns.
Let them know we want the right to not have a smart meter, and we do not want to pay a penalty because we are concerned about the impact of the radiofrequency radiation on our health. Click here for the Attorney General’s contact information.
You can find more background information on smart meters on the Center for Safer Wireless website.

Cell Phones and Cancer: Your Genes May Tell the Story Genetic Susceptibility and RF Radiation Modulate Thyroid Cancer

Microwave News - A Report on Non-Ionizing Radiation

Cell Phones and Cancer:
Your Genes May Tell the Story

Genetic Susceptibility and RF Radiation
Modulate Thyroid Cancer


Last January, a team led by Yawei Zhang of the Yale School of Public Health in New Haven published an epidemiological study on the possible link between thyroid cancer and cell phones. Though some “suggestive” associations were seen among long-term users, none was statistically significant. Still, the results “warrant further investigation,” they advised.

Zhang did follow up, and what she found could well change the way people think about cell phone cancer risks.

She discovered that some people have an innate susceptibility to thyroid cancer when exposed to cell phone radiation. These individuals have small variations in their DNA which affect the functioning of seven different genes.

All seven genes regulate DNA repair.

SIXTY MORE SATELLITES TO BE LAUNCHED SHORTLY BY SPACEX
Astronomers Protest
SpaceX intends to launch another 60 satellites as soon as the weather is favorable, bringing the total number of “Starlink” satellites in low orbit around the Earth to 240. Originally scheduled for tomorrow, the launch has been postponed due to weather conditions.
An Appeal by Astronomers called “Safeguarding the Astronomical Sky” is circulating, spearheaded by Italian astronomer Stefano Gallozzi. The appeal will collect signatures for about one more week, and then will be sent to governments, institutions and agencies around the world, and to newspapers and other media.
Most of the satellites will be visible to the naked eye, especially in the time after sunset and before sunrise, when they will most strongly catch the glare of the sun. If tens of thousands of them are launched, say the astronomers, they will ruin the night sky for all of humanity. The satellites will not only “greatly outnumber the approximately 9,000 stars that are visible to the unaided human eye,” but will “reach the brightness of the stars in the Ursa Minor constellation,” and will be “exceeded in brightness only by 172 stars in the whole sky.”

Even if the satellites are coated with non-reflecting paint, say the astronomers, they will still eclipse stars, and their radio transmissions will cripple radio astronomy, “making the astrophysics community blind to these spectral windows” through which they are currently able to observe the universe.

“THERE IS NO MORE TIME TO DISCUSS, IT IS TIME TO ACT!” states the appeal.
The appeal can be signed by
  • Professional Astrophysicists and Astronomers
  • Technologists/Engineers
  • PHD students
  • Collaborators and/or Associates at International Scientific Institutes.
If you are an astronomer or if you fit into one of those categories, please sign the Astronomers’ Appeal and ask your colleagues to sign also. At this writing, the list of signatories contains 263 astronomers from 25 countries (Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, India, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Serbia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay and Venezuela).
An article about this threat to the night sky was published in the popular and widely-read science magazine, Scientific American, on January 16, 2020. It is titled, “The FCC’s Approval of SpaceX’s Starlink Mega Constellation May Have Been Unlawful.” It quotes Ruskin Hartley, the Executive Director of the International Dark Sky Association. Such a large number of satellites, he says “has the potential to change our relationship, and our connection, with the universe.” And it quotes Ramon Ryan, a law student at Vanderbilt University. Ryan has written an article, to be published later this year in the Vanderbilt Journal of Entertainment and Technology Law, in which he argues that the Federal Communications Commission’s approval of 12,000 satellites was illegal because no environmental review was carried out. If the FCC is sued in a court of law, he says, it will be likely to lose.

Honey bees absorb more cell phone radiation at 5G mid-band and high-band frequencies

Honey bees absorb more cell phone radiation at 5G mid-band and high-band frequencies

So far over 10 million hectares of Australian land has been burnt to the ground with rough estimates of over 0ne billion animals destroyed, including thousands of koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, birds and other iconic Australian wildlife – and its still early in the bush fire season. As for pollinators such as the honey bee, according to Australian Honey Bee Industry Council chairman Peter McDonald, up to 2000 hives had been lost in NSW and up to 1000 in Queensland, but the true cost of the bush fires would be the effect on beehive health due to the loss of natural forest habitat. … “The bees feed in the forests, where they source pollen for breeding. It will take some time for honey bee populations to recover in burnt areas.” And now the bees and all other insects may well have to contend another threat in areas where the rollout of 5G transmitters are planned.  And with 5G planned for space giving blanket coverage to much of the planet, what will be the effects on insects? Perhaps the following research is a dire warning…. SNIP

Citizens from across western NC testify at utilities meeting

Citizens from across western NC testify at utilities meeting

202001xx_mnh_news_dukemeeting_p2
Chris Kanipe addresses the N.C. Utilities Commission.

The normally dark halls of the Burke County Courthouse were lit Thursday night as a public hearing was held by the North Carolina Utilities Commission.

The hearing came after Duke Energy filed an application Sept. 30 with the commission requesting authority to increase its rates for electric service to produce an additional $445.3 million in retail base revenue, according to the filing.

The company is looking to raise rates by 10.3 percent for residential customers, according to the filing with the commission. However, after “refund of certain tax benefits,” the rate increase would be 6.7 percent.

On the company’s website, it says bills for customers who use 1,000 kilowatt-hours per month would rise from $108.20 per month to $116.26.

It cites the reasons for the rate increase as its desire to shift to cleaner energy, with it closing coal-fired plants sooner and managing coal ash and closing coal ash basins operating in the Carolinas, according to the Duke Energy website.

Other reasons Duke Energy cited for the increase include “building a smart-thinking grid” to support growing solar power, battery storage, microgrids and electric vehicles.

The company also named continued grid improvements to make it resistant to power outages from severe weather and flooding, and more protected against physical and cyber threats.

However, Duke Energy Florida proposed a rate decrease of 3 percent for its customers for the year 2020.

“The company plans to reduce Florida rates by more than 3 percent while adding more solar power and making grid improvements to enhance reliability, security and resilience in 2020 and beyond,” the company said in a Sept. 16 press release.

Those customers would be saving around $4.69 per month in households that use 1,000 kilowatt-hours per month, the company said.

The News Herald asked a Duke Energy representative why Florida customers would be seeing a rate drop and still have some of the same improvements that the company wants to hike rates in North Carolina to pay for, but no response was received by press time.

The hearing in Morganton was one of four that will be held across the state to collect testimony from Duke Energy customers leading up to an evidentiary meeting March 23 at 2 p.m. in Raleigh for testimony and cross-examination of expert witnesses, according to the case docket.

One of the customers who spoke to the Commission was Chris Kanipe, of Taylorsville, who told the Commission of his frustration with the company and its policy on installing new smart meters.

Kanipe said he attempted to opt out of the smart meter system multiple times, but that he received conflicting information from Duke Energy customer service representatives.

Listing names of representatives and the dates he called them, Kanipe said one representative told him that to opt out, he would need to pay $150.

He said another representative told him he wouldn’t have to pay anything to opt out, but that it would take five to seven business days to have someone uninstall the smart meter and put in a new meter.

NTP Scientists Endorse Precaution First Federal Officials To Take a Stand on Cell Phone Safety

NTP Scientists Endorse Precaution

First Federal Officials To Take a Stand on Cell Phone Safety


Earlier this week an Italian court of appeals in Turin affirmed a decision to compensate a man who charged that he had developed a tumor after using a mobile phone. In its write-up, the U.K. Guardian quoted the Italian health minister saying that the court had made a mistake because there is no proof to support such a link.

Huh? Once again the findings of the $30 million animal study by the U.S. National Toxicology Program showing “clear evidence” of a cancer risk are being ignored —by the Italian minister and the Guardian reporter. The NTP study may not constitute “proof,” but it shows that simple denial cannot be justified.

Part of the problem has been with the NTP scientists themselves. They have shown ambivalence about their own findings, allowing others to make up their own narratives.

That has now changed.

NTP scientists have revealed that they are taking precautions to minimize their radiation exposures from cell phones.

Lawsuit Against the FCC- Your Support is Needed Now

Lawsuit Against the FCC

Your Support is Needed Now

Please help support The Environmental Health Trust and a coalition of other commentators file a court appeal challenging the FCC’s order terminating its evaluation of the adequacy of FCC RF radiation limits.

Despite reams of scientific evidence showing serious biological effects at levels far below the existing FCC RF limits and evidence given by numerous individuals injured by RF, the FCC says RF limits established in the 1990’s are adequate to protect the public from today’s technologies and the new technologies being developed for widespread deployment across the nation.

The deadline for a legal challenge is February 3, 2020. 

We have to raise $100,000 by February 3 to fund the first step in the lawsuit.   A generous anonymous donor has pledged $50,000, providing that The Environmental Health Trust can secure matching donations.  Please donate as generously as you are able.

Please make sure you note on the check specifically that the money is for the FCC appeal.

More Information on the FCC Item

In December 2019, the FCC released an item stating they decline to update the US radio frequency (RF) human exposure limits despite scientific public health organizations’ arguments that the existing limits are 23 years old and outdated, not protective of children, and should be tightened in light of recent US government research findings that associated radio frequency with cancer and DNA damage.  To read the over 1,000 submissions ignored by the FCC see Dockets 13-84 and  03-137.
