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exposure limits despite scientific public health organizations’ arguments that the existing limits are 23 years old and outdated, not protective of children, and should be tightened in light of recent US government research findings that associated radio frequency with cancer and DNA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.

The Town of Rothesay has opted not to support NB Power’s plan to install smart meters at homes across the province.

At an Energy and Utilities Board (EUB) hearing in Saint John, NB Power is seeking permission to spend 92 million dollars to outfit homes with smart meters or AMI – advanced metering infrastructure.

The Town of Rothesay was asked to consider offering a letter of support.

Mayor Nancy Grant said NB Power sent a package of information to her in the middle of last week, just prior to a deadline for items to be included in a town council meeting on Monday, adding that councillors only saw the materials on the weekend.

Councillors were asked to vote on the request the same day the EUB hearings began.

he request for support was defeated unanimously, although Grant said she doesn’t believe council is necessarily opposed to smart meters.

“This smart metering is not easy for lay-people to understand,” Grant began. “And I think the councillors simply felt that they hadn’t had the time to be able to discuss this and ask questions. It is a very expensive decision.”

Grant said it would have been “much appreciated” for council to have been given the information well in advance, allowing time for discussion, questions or even a presentation from NB Power itself.

“(Council) felt like they didn’t have enough information to support the application,” Grant Said.

NB Power said its smart meter plan would provide a net benefit to New Brunswickers of $31.1 million.

The EUB hearings are expected to continue until next Wednesday.

In the meantime, a spokesperson for the neighbouring Town of Quispamsis said NB Power has yet to make similar request to that community.

PA. woman wants smart meter exemption on health grounds

P.A. woman wants smart meter exemption on health grounds

Jan 14, 2020

The city of Prince Albert is fielding a request from a woman who does not want her current water meter replaced with a smart meter.

In a letter to council, the woman says the smart meter would negatively impact her health, and for this reason both SaskPower and SaskEnergy have agreed not to install smart meters in her home.

Smart meters give off low amounts of radio frequency energy, similar to levels emitted by cell phones and Wi-Fi equipment. According to Health Canada the devices “do not pose a public health risk.”

The deadline for Prince Albert residents to have a smart meter installed passed on Dec. 9. The city has previously stated that as a last resort, after repeated attempts to contact home-owners, water may be shut off to residences without the new meters.

But the letter-writer’s ward councillor, Dennis Ogrodnick is asking the city to make an exception for her.

“I empathized with her that yeah, this could have an impact on your health, we don’t know,” he told council at Monday night’s meeting of council.

“We don’t know for sure if it does or not, but in the meantime I think we should hold off and not cut off her water.”

Mayor Greg Dionne was skeptical and said the woman should produce medical documentation that the exception was necessary.

“We brought this in to be cheaper and more accurate and out of the 12,000 or 13,000 that we’ve put in so far we’ve had one exception,” he said.

Director of Financial Services Cheryl Tkachuk explained to council the new meters send readings remotely via cell-phone text. Allowing someone to keep their old meter would complicate this streamlined process.

“We would still have to have someone go there to read the meter,” Director of Financial Services Cheryl Tkachuk told council.

“That means we’d have to have a vehicle drive there, we’d have to have the personnel.”

The woman’s request has been referred to the financial services department.

Most utilities aren’t getting full value from smart meters, report warns

Utilities had no intention to save the consumer money on their electric bills.  It is always the bottom line for them not us.  When they rolled out the not so smart death traps their propaganda campaign highlighted a savings for us, the customer.  All we have gotten is ongoing increases in our bills.  Why do people continue to ignore those who are warning the public of the health dangers from exposure to pulses radio waves?  It is urgent we stand up for ourselves because the government does not have our backs to stop this public health hazard.  So on top of them breaking their promises to save us money; we are being exposed to unhealthy technology WHILE THE UTILITIES ARE MAKING MONEY!!…..…Sandaura

Subject: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau must be told that Industry’s man-made radiation causes disease epidemics and death.

Jan. 5, 2020
Dear Prime Minister Justin Trudeau,

If your Chief of Staff understood today’s surreal but unprecedented danger that now literally threatens Canada’s entire population, she would warn you of what the electric power generation, and wireless and telecom industries are doing to Canada’s entire population, especially to children (of which you have three) and pregnant women.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau needs to know what other countries are doing to protect their children from wireless technology in schools:  France, Belgium, Spain, Canada, European Parliament, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Finland, Israel, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, India, Russia, European Environment Agency, Singapore, United Kingdom, Cyprus, Taiwan, Namibia, Turkey, Greece, Chile, Ireland, Denmark, Tanzania, United States (see the actions taken by many individual states). https://phpa.health.maryland.gov/OEHFP/EH/Shared%20Documents/CEHPAC/CEHPAC%20Dec%2013%20Comments%20Part%204.pdf

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Justin Trudeau, the parent, also need to know other information in the above link which, we can only presume, has been kept from you, e.g.:

Protests will take place in many countries on Saturday, January 25, 2020. This is the first Global Day of Protest against 5G. It is only the first of more to come until our voices are heard and the irradiation of the Earth is stopped. In the days leading up to January 25, the 5G Space Appeal, with over 3,300 pages of signatures, will be delivered in person to many governments.

This threat to life on Earth is more immediate than climate change. If we want our children to have enough of a future even to fight climate change, our society must stop pretending that radio waves are harmless and that wireless technology is safe. It is not. It must end. If you want to be able to live a full and vibrant life again, without the aid of sleeping pills, antianxiety medications, or antidepressants; to eat whatever you want without the risk of diabetes or heart disease; to see the great nations of birds and bees recover their populations, you must throw away your cell phones.

You cannot hold a cell phone near your body, even for a few minutes, without damaging your nervous system and your cells. You cannot expect to use a cell phone in an emergency without the entire wireless infrastructure of the world being there, including all the towers and satellites. The demand for wireless communication and the revenue from wireless devices is tremendous; it is what is fueling, and paying for, 5G. If we want to stop 5G, but we won’t give up our cell phones, it is not going to happen, and we will shortly not have a planet to live on.

Public protests are planned for January 25, 2020 in Durban, South Africa; Canberra and Sydney, Australia; Tokyo, Japan; Torino, Bologna, Ravenna and other locations in Italy; London, Edinburgh, Isle of Man and other locations in the United Kingdom; Washington, DC, New York City, Hawaii and other locations in the United States; Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and other locations in Canada; and in Belgium, Bermuda, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Kenya, Malta, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden and other countries. The list is growing daily. Information about events in your country, including Facebook pages and email contacts, is available on the Stop 5G International website, here: https://stop5ginternational.org/5g-protest-day. You can also contact team@stop5ginternational.org for updates.

60 More Satellites Were Launched Today

This evening at 9:19 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, SpaceX launched another 60 satellites on a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida. This brings the number of SpaceX’s “Starlink” satellites orbiting the Earth up to 180. SpaceX plans to continue launching 60 satellites at a time, twice a month, for the foreseeable future. It intends to begin supplying 5G from space as soon as at least 420 satellites are in orbit and the Federal Communications Commission has approved its application to sell one million user devices to the American public. The FCC, to date, has not approved that application.

The Cellular Phone Task Force has posted a summary describing the satellite plans by SpaceX and seven other companies; how the satellites will be integrated into the global wireless network; and the expected effects on health and environment.

125 Cities in Italy Oppose 5G

Alleanza Italiana Stop 5G has published on its website a list of 125 municipalities in Italy that have passed resolutions or ordinances opposing 5G.

Italian astrophysicist Stefano Gallozzi is organizing a protest by Italy’s scientific community against SpaceX’s Starlink satellites because they will interfere with astronomers’ observations of the stars, and will especially interfere with radio astronomy telescopes. Gallozzi is also the co-administrator of Stop 5G Italia, which has more than 10,000 members and is helping to organize events in Italian cities for January 25.

Update on the Federal Lawsuit in New Mexico

From 2016 to 2018, New Mexicans for Utility Safety worked with other organizations to defeat smart meters in much of our state. As a result, there are no smart meters in New Mexico’s major cities and surroundings.

In December 2018, the Santa Fe Alliance for Public Health and Safety filed a lawsuit against the City of Santa Fe, the State of New Mexico, and the United States of America in federal district court. We are asking the court to declare that city, state and federal laws that effectively mandate 5G and deprive the public of the right to protect themselves from injury to their health, property and environment, are unconstitutional.

Briefing on our motion for preliminary injunction, in which we have asked the court to order that no antennas be built on the sidewalks in Santa Fe before trial, was completed on October 1, 2019. We are waiting to see what the court will do. So are the telecommunications companies. So far, in Santa Fe, there are no antennas on the sidewalks.

Press Release about the Global Day of Protest

press release about the Global Day of Protest was posted today on the website of Stop 5G International. Please download it, translate it, and send it to local and national newspapers and other media in your country before January 25.

FCC Knows Anything Metallic – Braces, Glasses, Hip Replacements, Jewelry, etc. – Can Increase Cell Phone and WiFi Radiation Absorption Into Body. Did You?

FCC Knows Anything Metallic – Braces, Glasses, Hip Replacements, Jewelry, etc. – Can Increase Cell Phone and WiFi Radiation Absorption Into Body. Did You?

By B.N. Frank

There’s a song, “Does My Ring Burn Your Finger?” that has nothing to do with metallic jewelry absorbing cell phone and WiFi radiation into the body.  Regardless, research says it can and by a considerable amount.  The Federal Communication (FCC) has even acknowledged this possibility, made inquiries about it, but has not informed the public.  So now I can’t get that song out of my head and I’m really glad that I had my mercury fillings replaced years ago.

The health impacts of cell towers

The health impacts of cell towers



How are cell towers similar to DDT, an insecticide infamous for its environmental impacts? It’s a good question. On Dec. 8, about 90 local residents asked this question and many more at an event to explore the health and environmental impacts of wireless technology. As new cell towers are being proposed in the area, interest was high, with standing-room only in the Point Reyes Community Presbyterian Church.

The event was sponsored by the West Marin Alliance for Human and Environmental Health, the Point Reyes Coalition for SafeTech and the Ecological Options Network. I spoke alongside Dr. Madga Havas from Canada and Ellie Marks of the California Brain Tumor Association.

I am a physician who has studied and developed policies for environmental toxins for over 25 years. When I learned of a proposal to place a cell tower on my daughter’s school 10 years ago, I dove into the research. What I learned is that wireless technology and infrastructure is a broad environmental and human toxin. We use and are increasingly surrounded by these devices: cell phones, laptops, “smart” watches, “smart” meters and internet routers. Unfortunately, we are told these devices are safe, that we do not really know if there is harm or that the research is inconclusive. Myself and over 250 expert scientists who have looked at this issue conclude the opposite.

To start with, the standard set by the Federal Communications Commission is based only on a single impact: heating of the tissues. This is like a cooking standard, and it ignores other biological effects. Nature and human biology are much more complex than technology. Humans evolved over millions of years in an environment with extremely low electromagnetic radiation. Our bodies use very tiny electrical signals that communicate within a labyrinth of molecules which are critical to the proper development of a fetus and to the healthy functioning of an adult.

In medical school, I learned about only a fraction of the thousands of dizzying interactions within and between cells that regulate reproduction, energy metabolism, the immune system, the gut, the brain and the nervous system. I learned that biology is both intricate and fragile, like a symphonic orchestra in which every instrument must be played perfectly. In studying toxic exposures, I learned that there can be different mechanisms at work that cause harm to our cells and biology.

One of these mechanisms is oxidation, which, like rust, causes aging and the breakdown of DNA, proteins, lipids and other critical molecules. The insecticide DDT causes oxidation, and antioxidants we consume counter this effect. The effect of oxidation on cells has been well studied; scientific literature connects oxidative cellular harm to inflammation and human disease. This mechanism does not involve heat injury.

When non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation is emitted from wireless devices, it passes through us and is variably absorbed in our bodies. The radiation is absorbed by water and blocked by metal. Of 100 peer-reviewed articles on radio frequency radiation and oxidation, 93 studies found a positive result, or resulting damage to DNA, lipids and proteins. This is not a thermal effect; it is a biological effect.

Dozens of studies have linked wireless radiation to sperm, ovarian and embryo harm, and to miscarriage. Neurologic injury is also a worry because studies show damage to nerve cells, the alteration of neurotransmitter levels, the opening of the blood-brain barrier (with large epidemiologic studies indicating memory impairment), behavioral changes and an increase in brain cancer.

Addiction to and the overuse of wireless devices is especially problematic for children. Six studies have demonstrated brain shrinkage—in white and grey matter—in those addicted to electronic devices. A new article in the Journal of the American Medical Association Pediatrics showed evidence of microstructural brain changes and brain shrinkage in children age 3 to 5 years who use an electronic device more than one hour a day.

Studies on cell towers show an increase in cancer in those living within 1,500 feet of towers; other studies show an alteration in stress hormones and blood abnormalities. A significant percentage of people also report non-specific or vague health symptoms, including headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea and insomnia when living close to cell towers. Electro-sensitivity is a real disease and more people—from 3 to 18 percent—are reporting vague symptoms when they use wireless devices.

Wireless radiation can also affect the health, behavior and migration of animals. Bees appear particularly sensitive, and plants and trees are also adversely affected. Precaution on all fronts is needed with the placement of cell towers, as the radiation they emit is constant. Once a large cell tower is in place, 5G small cells will follow. Cell towers become a permanent Trojan horse.
