Wireless Industry Confesses: “No Studies Show 5G is Safe”

Wireless Industry Confesses: “No Studies Show 5G is Safe”

Last week, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal grilled wireless industry representatives, who admitted the industry has done ZERO health & safety studies on 5G technology. Meanwhile, dozens of independent studies indicates that 5G is a risk to all biological life. Watch the video above, on YouTube here, or on Facebook here.

[WASHINGTON, DC]— During today’s Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee hearing on the future of 5G wireless technology and their impact on the American people and economy, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) raised concerns with the lack of any scientific research and data on the technology’s potential health risks.

Blumenthal blasted the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)—government agencies jointly-responsible for ensuring that cellphone technologies are safe to use—for failing to conduct any research into the safety of 5G technology, and instead, engaging in bureaucratic finger-pointing and deferring to industry.

In December 2018, Blumenthal and U.S. Representative Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) sent a letter to FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr seeking answers regarding potential health risks posed by new 5G wireless technology. At today’s hearing, Blumenthal criticized Carr for failing to provide answers, and instead, just echoing, “the general statements of the FDA, which shares regulatory responsibility for cell phones with the FCC.”  Blumenthal also decried the FDA’s statements as “pretty unsatisfactory.”  A PDF of Carr’s complete response is available here.

During an exchange with wireless industry representatives, Blumenthal asked them whether they have supported research on the safety of 5G technology and potential links between radiofrequency and cancer, and the industry representatives conceded they have not.

Blumenthal stated:

“If you go to the FDA website, there basically is a cursory and superficial citation to existing scientific data saying ‘The FDA has urged the cell phone industry to take a number of steps, including support additional research on possible biological effects of radio frequency fields for the type of signals emitted by cell phones.’ I believe that Americans deserve to know what the health effects are, not to pre-judge what scientific studies may show, and they also deserve a commitment to do the research on outstanding questions.”

“So my question for you: How much money has the industry committed to supporting additional independent research—I stress independent—research? Is that independent research ongoing? Has any been completed? Where can consumers look for it? And we’re talking about research on the biological effects of this new technology.”

At the end of the exchange, Blumenthal concluded,

“So there really is no research ongoing.  We’re kind of flying blind here, as far as health and safety is concerned.”

In November 2018, the National Toxicology Program released the final results of the longest and most expensive study to date on cellphones and cancer. Those studies found “some evidence” of a link to cancer, at least in male rats. However, the study only focused on the risks associated with 2G and 3G cell phones.

The latest 5G wireless technology relies on the deployment of many more new antennas and transmitters that are clustered lower to the ground and closer to homes and schools. There has been even more limited research with respect to the health ramifications of 5G technology, and the FCC has thus far failed to adequately explain how they have determined 5G is safe.

New: Electromagnetic Sensitivity page with chapter on Symptoms

New: Electromagnetic Sensitivity page with chapter on Symptoms

Recent additions to this website are a page on Electromagnetic Sensitivity (EMS) and a chapter on Symptoms.

Electromagnetic sensitivity is when a person experiences adverse health effects when using, or in proximity to, RF-EMF emitting devices and equipment – Smart Meters, cell phones, Wi-Fi, cell towers – and/or EMF fields. This is an environmentally-induced condition, and it can be life-threatening. Avoidance and reduced exposure are key. EMS is recognized by the U.S. government. This condition is also known as electrohypersensitivity (EHS) in Europe, Canada, and other countries.

EMS/EHS can be disabling, and in the United States, those who are disabled are entitled to equal access and protected from discrimination by the law.

The new page has information and resources on the Americans with Disabilities Act, including the U.S. definition of “disability”.

Wireless radiation poses an access barrier to those who are EMS-disabled.

In 2002, the U.S. Access Board recognized electromagnetic sensitivity and that it can be disabling. In 2005, the Board released the Indoor Environmental Quality report with building design and modification recommendations and accommodation suggestions for those with EMS and multiple chemical sensitivities. This report is a “must have” for everyone struggling with EMS and experiencing restricted access to their community, essential services including medical care and grocery stores, access to city streets and sidewalks, and the most essential of all, the use and enjoyment of their own homes.

Disabled accommodation is when a modification to policies and practices is made in order to increase access to a disabled person. For example, for the mobility impaired, that can be a ramp. Requests are made to the entity – eg. city hall, utility company, doctor’s office — for disabled accommodation, with suggestions on what would make that facility or service more accessible to the disabled person. The request has to be reasonable, or it can be denied. The accommodation granted has to be meaningful to you.

For those disabled by EMS, disabled accommodation can take many forms.

An important example is requesting an analog meter as a disabled accommodation. Though utility companies and utility commissions should understand that “this meter is making me sick” is a request for disabled accommodation, it is best to clearly state that you are requesting disabled accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act, that you are disabled by electromagnetic sensitivities, that the meter’s emissions are causing you disabling health effects, and this is an access barrier to the use and enjoyment of your home.

As quasi-state actors (ADA Title II Technical Assistance Manual, II-1.3000 Relationship to title III), state-regulated utilities have to comply with ADA Title II requirements, which are stricter than the Title III requirements for other businesses.

At this time, ADA is generally being ignored by utility commissions and by utility companies. In addition, many people that become ill from Smart/AMI/AMR/digital meter emissions and other wireless technology, do not think of themselves as disabled and consequently, do not avail themselves of these resources and protection. However, in many cases, they qualify as disabled under federal and state-equivalent rules. Learning about the definition, and making accommodation requests to regain access, raises the visibility on these crippling wireless impacts and is essential for your civil rights and to lessen the functional impairment you experience.

The so-called opt-outs do not apply to the EMS-disabled. The EMS-disabled cannot “choose” to have an analog meter; it is essential. There is no “option” when a person suffers disabling health effects from these EMF emissions. Furthermore, the ADA Title II Technical Assistance Manual states that fees, such as those for an “opt-out”, are considered a surcharge in relation to the disabled and are not allowed — II-3.5400 Surcharges.

Each accommodation granted can help to get additional ones. Asking a doctor or dentist to turn off the Wi-Fi when you go in for an appointment, or the public library to make a Wi-Fi free time during the week, so you can use it, or asking your city officials to ask people to turn off their wireless devices at the beginning of the meeting, or even turn off the Wi-Fi in the room while you are there – these are examples of accommodation requests.

If accommodation requests are not granted, if entities will not dialogue with you about possible alternatives, you can file complaints locally and with your state. This is a civil rights issue, and each state has a civil rights agency, board, or commission with which complaints can be filed.

A simple letter from a doctor or some other knowledgeable professional is not necessary except when an entity intends to challenge a person’s assertion of disabled rights. However, ADA says:

(ii) The primary object of attention in cases brought under title II of the ADA should be whether public entities have complied with their obligations and whether discrimination has occurred, not the extent to which an individual’s impairment substantially limits a major life activity. Accordingly, the threshold issue of whether an impairment substantially limits a major life activity should not demand extensive analysis.
Americans with Disabilities Act (revised 10/16) § 35.108(d)(ii)

Raising the visibility of this issue is the responsibility of everyone affected by it. We do that by asking for what we need — reduced exposure and equal access.

In addition, this disability is not a well-known class. When a disability is not well known, a person asserting his/her disabled rights also bears the responsibility of educating — informing an entity of his/her limitations and requirements. After the person has done so, then the entity must comply.

This situation has some similarities to smoking. Non-smoking areas used to be rare in restaurants and public areas. Now, non-smoking areas are the norm in the United States and many countries.

Important terms:

  • disabled accommodation
  • access
  • barriers to access
  • discrimination

At present, the Electromagnetic Sensitivity page has mostly United States information. In future, I hope to expand that.

Insufficient sleep could damage your DNA and genes, study finds

In the following article from the South China Morning Post, research is mentioned that indicates insufficient sleep can lead to DNA damage and possibly increase the risk of cancer. Considering that one of the main health complaints from people who have a smart meter located close to bedroom areas is insomnia, a case could be raised that in such cases smart meter emissions may damage DNA and increase the risk of cancer. EXCERPT: “Sleep deprivation can damage DNA and the body’s ability to repair this, possibly leading to higher chances of genetic diseases such as cancer, a study has found”. The University of Hong Kong research, which looked into the effects of sleep deprivation on local doctors, found that those who needed to work overnight shifts had a higher level of damage in their DNA, as well as lower levels of gene activity associated with DNA repair….

From the South China Morning Post:

10 Feb, 2019 – 11:26 pm
Research conducted on doctors who worked long, overnight shifts, and results may apply to those in other jobs with similar working patterns. Adults aged between 18 and 60 need at least seven hours of sleep per night

Sleep deprivation can damage DNA and the body’s ability to repair this, possibly leading to higher chances of genetic diseases such as cancer, a study has found.

The University of Hong Kong research, which looked into the effects of sleep deprivation on local doctors, found that those who needed to work overnight shifts had a higher level of damage in their DNA, as well as lower levels of gene activity associated with DNA repair.

The study was among the first to examine such effects on humans, particularly on younger adults.

“This is a very preliminary study, but [there is] an indication that sleep disruption is not good for you, and not good for your genes,” said Dr Gordon Wong Tin-chun, co-author of the study and an associate professor at HKU’s department of anaesthesiology.

DNA damage means a change in the basic structure of genetic instructions for cell growth and functions in organisms, and this alteration is not repaired when the molecule is replicated.

Wong said DNA damage and lower repair ability could bring bigger health implications.

“[Such conditions] may increase chances of developing diseases from genetic mutations such as cancers,” he said.

Wong said the findings of the study might also be applicable to people who had working patterns that were similar to the doctors who pulled irregular overnight shifts.

The findings have recently been published in medical journal Anaesthesia.

Researchers looked at 49 healthy, full-time doctors from two local public hospitals. Among them, 24 had to work overnight on-site calls, with most of them required to take five to six such calls per month. An overnight on-site call means a doctor has to work from late afternoon to early morning the next day.

The remaining 25 doctors in the study were not required to take such calls.

Blood samples were taken from all participants after three days of adequate sleep. Additional blood was sampled from those who had to work overnight. Blood from these respondents was drawn the following morning, after sleep deprivation.

Researchers found that in general doctors on overnight calls had 30 per cent higher DNA breaks, a type of DNA damage, compared with those on regular hours.

This DNA damage was further increased by more than 25 per cent after a night of acute sleep deprivation. Doctors with insufficient sleep were also found to have lower levels of gene activity associated with DNA repair.

But the mechanism on why inadequate sleep could lead to such damage remained unclear in the study.

Wong said they hoped to raise more awareness among the public about the importance of sleep.

“Maybe you should consider looking into your [sleep habits] and treating sleep with a bit more respect,” he said.

The recommended hours of sleep for people vary across age groups. An adult aged between 18 and 60 would need at least seven hours of sleep per night, according to the website of the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.

Professor Michael Irwin, head of HKU’s department of anaesthesiology and an editor of the journal, said the impacts of sleep deprivation were not only physical but psychological, and they could also affect judgment.

“For doctors working at night and dealing with very technical things like anaesthesia or surgery, we should really try to minimise the amount of procedures done overnight,” Irwin said.

Wireless Hearing Aids May Cause Dizziness, Bloody Noses, Cardiac Issues, and More Because They Emit WiFi Radiation.

Wireless Hearing Aids May Cause Dizziness, Bloody Noses, Cardiac Issues, and More Because They Emit WiFi Radiation.

By B.N. Frank

I can’t be the only one who cringes when I see Pat Boone advertising wireless “TV Ears.”  Wireless hearing aids are also being manufactured and marketed too – even though exposure to wireless WiFi radiation is harmful in a variety of ways.  Research has proven it can disrupt the blood-brain barrier which can cause it to leak as well as kill brain cells.  Exposure can also cause bacteria to become antibiotic resistant.  It can even make your skin age faster.  These are all things to consider when putting anything that emits WiFi inside your ears.

So how much WiFi actually emits from wireless hearing aids?  Prepare to be horrified by the measurements as well as the testimony provided by the woman who wore them.

 

Cell phone manufacturers have already warned shareholders that they may eventually be held liable for harm caused by their products.  Insurance companies don’t seem to be interested in doing business anymore with “Big Wireless” either.

Just because these products are legal doesn’t mean that they are safe.

‘5G Will Be a Global Catastrophe’: Activist Warns of Massive ‘Human Guinea Pigs’ Trial

‘5G Will Be a Global Catastrophe’: Activist Warns of Massive ‘Human Guinea Pigs’ Trial

As word begins to spread about the corporate-government collusion in what appears to be an increasingly reckless roll-out of the new military-grade 5G cellular technology, activists around the world are now beginning to elevate this issue to the level of a bona fide public health crisis. Not surprisingly, government officials and corporate sponsors are attempting to avoid the issue altogether. 

Recently, residents in the London Borough of Hackney pushed back against the government-sanctioned corporate roll-out of 5G, citing legitimate concerns about documented health risks to humans from over exposure to 5G millimetre waves (mmWave) with a litany of potential health side effects, including damage to the eyes, skin and testes, as well as causing cancers and altering brain development.

One resident, Liza Evers, who lives off busy Old Street, raised the alarm that 5G could be the next big public health scandal in the same vein as asbestos, noting that 5G firm EE never notified residents about their recent roll-out experiment.

“The effect of this radiation on public health is yet to undergo any rigorous scientific testing,” she said.

“The [American] Department of Defence uses this technology for crowd dispersal and disruption. It’s much stronger than 3G or 4G.”

“If you read what scientists say, why should a densely populated area be the guinea pigs for this? Why should any human being be the guinea pigs of this?” said Evers.

In a sweetheart deal done under the radar with the government, EE claims that it doesn’t need to apply for any permission to conduct its public experiments, claiming that because it bought-up the broadcast band in auction from Ofcom for a cool £303million last April.

RT International reports…

A leading activist on the issue of electromagnetic radiation and its negative impacts on public health has described the rollout of 5G as a “massive health experiment” which could “become a global catastrophe.”

Arthur Robert Firstenberg is a well-known advocate for curtailing the development of 5G networks both in the US and internationally, claiming that super fast broadband could cause cancer in humans and wildlife, as well as exacerbating the symptoms of electromagnetic hypersensitivity.

In a bid to stall the rollout of the networks Firstenberg is petitioning the World Health Organization, the UN and the EU to “urgently halt the development of 5G.” The petition had garnered over 40,000 signatures at time of writing.

“The deployment of 5G constitutes an experiment on humanity and the environment that is defined as a crime under international law,” the petition states. The US rollout of the new network has already begun in cities like Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, and Sacramento.

“This could become a global catastrophe. When the first satellites were launched in the late 1990s for mobile phones, on the day they were launched people sensitive to these things got very sick. The mortality rate rose in the US by 5-10% too and there were reports that birds were not flying,”Firstenberg told the Daily Star.

Firstenberg also claims that, in areas of the world where rollout of 5G antennas has already begun, the local population, including insects and other wildlife, are already getting sick. He claims to have a condition known as electromagnetic hypersensitivity, which induces symptoms like dizziness, nausea, amnesia, insomnia, tremors, heart arrhythmia, acute and chronic pain, among others though it is not scientifically or medically recognized.

In addition, Firstenberg filed a lawsuit seeking $1.43 million in damages from his neighbor for damaging his health by using her iPhone and WiFi connection.

Much like cell phones before it in the 1980s and 90s, 5G has encountered strong pushback from the general public since it was first announced. In September 2018, Mill Valley city council, in California, voted to block development of 5G towers and small cells in residential areas citing “serious adverse health and environmental impacts caused by the microwave radiation emitted from these 4G and 5G Small Cell Towers,” Motherboard reports.

However, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “There is no scientific evidence that provides a definite answer to that question… More research is needed before we know if using cell phones causes health effects.”

Despite a number of broad-ranging studies into the potential effects of cell phone radiation showing no solid evidence of any significant health risks to humans (let alone insects), many within the scientific community remain skeptical that the benefits of 5G technology outweigh the potential harm to humans.

Tworecent studies also showed elevated risk of cancerous tumors developing in male rats (though not female) who were exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMFs) for nine hours a day over two years. However, the claims didn’t stand up in follow-up double-blind tests.

215 scientists from 40 different countries have allegedly signed an appeal calling for international protection from non-ionizing electromagnetic field exposure, the effects of which include, but are not limited to, “increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being.”

In a letter, Dr Martin Pall, a biochemistry professor at the Washington State University, claimed there were severe biological and health effects, including increased risk of cancer via DNA mutations, due to exposure to 5G networks, while also claiming that the FCC is a “captured agency” that is subject to the will of the very industry it is supposed to regulate.

5G would provide broadband speeds over 100 times faster than current data speeds. But to facilitate its rollout 300,000 new antennas would be required in the US alone. That’s roughly equal to three decades-worth of cell phone tower development.

The networks require a more dense array of “small cell” sites because their high frequency waves provide faster speeds but don’t travel as far.

WA-LETTER: Privacy health concerns in Clallam smart meters

Peninsula Daily News

LETTER: Privacy health concerns in Clallam smart meters

Smart meters come in under the radar.

In this day and age of technological surveillance and diminished civil and personal freedoms, we need to be more and better informed than ever before.

Smart meters are definitely another example of being monitored.

There may not be anything nefarious about them, but they do infringe on our privacy by monitoring our power usage in great detail.

Patterns and amounts of power usage tell a lot about us, when we shower or turn on the hot tub or throw in a load of laundry.

We pay for our power and how we use it is our business.

This kind of information can be very valuable to third-party interests; look what has happened with Facebook and many other social media platforms.

The Clallam PUD needs to assure us that information gathered by smart meters is not being archived, sold or shared. Or if it is shared, then with whom.

At $30 a month, the opt-out option is not realistic and does not address the issues.

Health issues are a bigger concern for many people and that subject is hotly debated.

For example, the American Cancer Society has said that while there is no proof that smart meters cause cancer, there is real concern that they might pose a risk to people undergoing some kinds of radiation therapy.

The American Cancer Society also warns that they might affect pacemakers.

PA-Studies suggest the harm of wireless radiation

Studies suggest the harm of wireless radiation

American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that parents reduce their children’s exposure.

We all know that smoking is harmful to our health. Even smokers understand the risks.

But there was a time when smoking was glamorous and recommended for healthy social pleasures.

Then in 1964, the Surgeon General shocked Americans with a landmark report revealing smoking cigarettes was linked with lung cancer and heart disease.

We’ve come a long way in understanding how a once-simple pleasure actually kills people.

Some now believe that cellphones, wireless devices and smart meters are the modern-day equivalent of cigarettes.

Everyone uses them, but very few consumers recognize any potential health risks.

Apple iPhone users might be surprised that the manufacturer posts a warning right on the device.

But it’s not obvious; it’s buried deep within the phone. To find it, select “settings,” then “general” and then “about.” Next, scroll all the way to the bottom and click on “legal” and then “RF Exposure.”

The almost too-hidden warning basically recommends users not hold the phone next to their head, but opt for hands-free options to reduce exposure to radio frequency, or RF, energy.

Dangers of exposure

Mark Proudfoot, Wyomissing, is passionate about spreading the message of the dangers of exposure to radio frequencies, especially for children. He has publicly addressed the Wyomissing School Board several times with his concerns.

“Schools have been dodging the issue, waiting for clear-cut proof that wireless is damaging to heath,” Proudfoot said. “The proof is in, but there is no interest in action to protect our children without government regulations to force it.”

Proudfoot predicts that there will be a tragedy in the next decade with thousands being mortally sick from wireless exposure.

“The data is in, and it is clear that wireless causes cancer, premature aging, sleep disorders, infertility, concentration problems, DNA damage and is quite possibly a significant contributor to the autism explosion,” he said. “The mechanisms for damage have been proven, and FCC guidelines do not even consider these risks.”

“Theresa,” 52, Oley Township, has not been able to live in her home for the past month because of electro-hyper sensitivity and the mandated installation of a smart meter on her house.

Theresa did not wish to be identified with her real name in order to protect her family.

“I was fortunate that my doctor at the Cleveland Clinic educated me on the importance of reducing exposures,” Theresa said. “I am very grateful as that helped me have a better long-term outcome. I cannot live in my house right now for reasons outside of my control.”

Reduce exposure

Theresa is a pediatric physical therapist and functional medicine health coach who educates parents in wellness strategies, including recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics that parents reduce their children’s wireless exposure.

“This recommendation was made after the release of the National Toxicology Program study results,” Theresa said. “This was a large study on (the link between) cellphones and cancer.”

Theresa said she has found when parents reduce their children’s wireless exposures, infants and toddlers progress better in therapy.

Annmarie Cantrell, 48, Union Township, said she too has significant sensitivity when being around wireless devices.

“I began to notice brain fog, an increase in anxiety, heart palpitations and nausea, and started to notice a pattern of symptoms in front of computers or in stores which offer wireless.”

“Shelly,” 55, Reading, who also did not wish to use her real name, said when she is in certain environments, within hours she can experience nausea, headaches, sweats, dizziness, heart palpitations and the inability to concentrate.

“I began to notice patterns and realized it happened when I was around wireless,” Shelly said. “There are thousands of studies which have not been spoken about in the media. People don’t want to believe this because they feel they need their gadgets: It’s a factor of addiction.”

In the first three seasons of the Netflix original series “Better Call Saul,” a main character played by Michael McKeon is afflicted with electromagnetic hypersensitivity.

Portrayed as mental illness

But much of his affliction is portrayed as being a mental illness.

Marsha Green, a professor of psychology at Albright College, said that is often the diagnosis, but an unfair assessment, of people afflicted with the symptoms.

“I want to make it clear that people with symptoms are not imagining this,” Green said. “There is pretty clear evidence that microwave frequencies definitely have an effect on the nervous system.

“Electrosensitivity is classified as a disability, but there is so much resistance from this multibillion-dollar industry,” she said. “People are addicted to technology and don’t want to hear this.”

A Dec. 19 press release issued by Pennsylvanians for Safe Technology states that the “plight of Pennsylvanians with disabilities requires the immediate action of the Pennsylvania legislature or the Public Utility Commission.

“These cases demonstrate the harm done to vulnerable Pennsylvanians by the Public Utilities Commission and electric utilities, the lack of consumer protections and lack of accommodations for ADA accepted diagnoses of disability,” the press release states. “Pennsylvania stands alone as the only state with a PUC which refuses to acknowledge the issue of smart meter harm to residential customers. Every other state utility commission has granted accommodations to their customers with disabilities.”

Neuropathy risk

Dr. Sharon Goldberg, who had a private medical practice in Miami and is now establishing one in Santa Fe, New Mexico, said that in 2014 she experienced neuropathy when holding a cellphone.

“That’s when I got interested in wireless radiation and started reading research and networking with other physicians,” Goldberg said. “The real problem here is that there is no informed consent. No one tells you what the potential risks are with this technology.”

Goldberg said there is sufficient evidence to prove there are very serious health risks with wireless technology, but many doctors do not address it because they are being kept in the dark.

“Doctors do what they are paid to do and often do not have time to read the studies,” she said. “There has been a lot of false information put out by the wireless industry. If physicians take time to read the studies, they would all come to the same solution that remediation in the home is a way to improve patients’ overall health.”

Proudfoot said no one is opposed to technology, but that there are solutions to drastically reduce exposure.

Shelly said you should turn off cellular data and turn off all routers in your home during the night.

Theresa recommended hard-wiring devices.

“I feel we are lucky because we know about this and mitigate our exposures,” Theresa said.

“Another thing is that you should never put your phone next to your body,” Proudfoot said. “I always keep it 3 or 4 feet away from me.”

Peter Beck, 70, who lives near Robesonia, is a concerned citizen trying to make people aware of the dangers.

He recommends purchasing an RF meter, available for about $150 on Amazon, to keep you aware of when the frequencies become unsafe.

“RF meters make those invisible things in your home visible,” Beck said.
