‘Access to the internet in schools can be easily achieved, and with better speeds, using wired connections. Wired internet should be the priority and the rule for schools. School’s wi-fi should be only for exceptional situations… ‘

Health Risks of 5G Technology Risk Our Children's Health

Potentially interesting article but the user interface is so bad that I can’t read it on a slow internet connection.

Pointed questions from the public who fear they are being used as ‘guinea-pigs’
Comprehensive FAQ from EHT, covering many of the issues raised about the study.
Perhaps journalists (and some scientists) should read this before writing ill-informed commentaries and raising quesions which have already been answered (thereby generating ‘doubt’). Also relevant to articles/comments below on ‘junk science’ and control groups.
Hard on the heels of Olga Sheean’s letter and comments from Dariusz Leszczynski (going back some time), the Russians have entered the fray.
‘It has just come to our attention that the WHO RF Working group consists mainly from present and past ICNIRP members….’
I find it hard to believe that they have only just noticed, but delayed action is better than none, and this group’s opinion should carry considerable weight and influence.
Most of it already noted here, but more on the ‘smart’ meters which can’t work out electricity consumption correctly, role of EMFs in chronic illness etc.
Prof Dariusz Leszczynski on gaps in research
… and ‘junk science’ reporting
Many of the issues he identifies are the ones I notice in many of the articles I see.
(The offending article…. http://www.baltimoresun.com/ne…..story.html)
which generated some abusive rather than illuminating responses on Twitter.
Also a comment from Prof Trevor Marshall, highlighting a general issue re control groups.
‘Junk science cited by NIH did not isolate controls in Faraday cages, so their expts failed.NTP rats were kept underground-Success!’
[None of the controls in the NTP study developed cancer – maybe not coincidence?]
And from EHT ‘Outrageous assault on sane advice to wire schools by 2 microbiologists w no training in bioelectromagnetics;…’
More coverage of the California mobile phone document – but nothing new.
From Prof Trevor Marshall
‘New Study Chronic disease=Human Microbiome overgrowth, Successful therapy found to need RF shielding’ No details but sounds like support for his view that shielding may be necessary to facilitate recovery of the immune system
