‘Children are particularly vulnerable as “the average exposure from use of the same mobile phone is higher by a factor of 2 in a child’s brain and higher by a factor of 10 in the bone marrow of the skull.” Also, the child’s brain is developing at a much greater rate than the adult’s brain. ‘
World Health Organisation

The war on children continues

The latest and greatest in childcare?
https://www.emfacts.com/2017/05/aristotle-mattels-digital-nanny-for-babies-and-young-children/ – how long before parental care becomes expendable? And what kind of children will be the result?
Mattel’s own chief products officer on the impact on a child’s development: “Honestly speaking, we just don’t know. If we’re successful, kids will form some emotional ties to this. Hopefully, it will be the right types of emotional ties.”’ Can one share his optimism?

http://www.chicagotribune.com/…..story.html Smart socks and hospital visits. Does’t seem to have occured to any of these experts that the sock and its associated radiation might be contributing to the problem? All that radiation in an area particularly rich in reflex points and meridians….

Cell towers on schools
http://nocelltoweratpgcpsschoo…..ounty.html
http://www.wusa9.com/mb/news/l…../438970099 – cell towers and scools

And one small victory
https://ehtrust.org/wi-fi-off-switches-installed-finnish-school-reduce-wireless-radiation-exposure-children/ – Finland switching off at least some of the time

5G and IoT

https://www.electricsense.com/1…..n-dangers/ – Lloyd’s summary of 5G issues
http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/doc…..t/7918591/ – some types of antenna can cause significant heating (see Active Denial 7 March – is this an example?)
https://smartmeterharm.org/2017/05/08/california-legislators-meet-with-telecom-lobbyists-at-hush-hush-event-on-eve-of-5g-bill/ – why the secrecy? What are they trying to hide?

Calls to Action

One commentator thinks 5G is more hype than substance – used to be known as ‘vapour-ware’ in IT circles.
https://backchannel.com/the-next-generation-of-wireless-5g-is-all-hype-1790239b8ca8
‘In order to work, 99% of any “5G” wireless deployment will have to be fiber running very close to every home and business’ (See diagram in the next post)
So why not run fibre for the extra few feet, into each home, and eliminate all the problems, provide a better service etc. Or would that interfere with the money-go-round?
http://www.tellusventure.com/b…..s-ask-fcc/ – FCC support for Big T
http://mailchi.mp/ebb08eb389f0…..ls-warning – second part covers 5G
https://www.fedscoop.com/technical-concerns-continue-muddle-iots-long-term-promise/ – another security warning

Big Money still trying to fight Berkley’s disclosure law – advertisers this time
https://www.mediapost.com/publications/article/301048/ana-backs-wireless-carriers-in-battle-over-cell-p.html

Thorough (German) review on non-ionising radiation risks, English translation. Relatively easy reading – not too technical.
https://ehtrust.org/wp-content/uploads/Hensinger-Wilke-2016.pdf
….contrast with this pathetic effort, apparently from Harvard.
https://t.co/iMuNPcg2Bm
5 pages of ICNIRP- and industry-speak, no identified author(s), no evidence of any real investigation, and a grand total of 9 references confined to (mainly American) government agencies and Friends of ICNIRP. But because it emanates from Harvard people will probably take it more seriously. It includes precautionary advice, just in case…..?
EHT’s comment – ‘This Harvard document misleads on the health risks of radio frequency radiation yet at the same time lists “Tips…’

Dariusz Leszczynski on possible impact of very localised thermal effects – not the first time this issue has been raised.
https://betweenrockandhardplace.wordpress.com/2017/05/10/cool-body-hot-mitochondria-is-there-a-lesson-for-wireless-radiation-exposures/

News Round-up
https://www.ctia.org/industry-data/press-releases-details/press-releases/americans-wireless-data-usage-continues-to-skyrocket – CTIA celebrating massive increase in wireless traffic. Joel Moskowitz is not joining the general rejoicing – ‘Instead of this being a wake-up call, most see this as a sign of progress …’ Progress towards what?
https://ehtrust.org/policy/resources-for-policy-makers/letters-testimony-health-effects-cell-phones-wireless-radiation/ various expert testimonies. Useful campaign material
https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/pilots-story-lesson-you-nnemf-jack-kruse – wifi on aircraft

Protests against small cell deployment

CBS News – – seems that the protesters know more about the health issues than the perpetrators.

http://newstarget.com/2017-04-…..e-u-s.html – residents opposing not-so-smart meters
http://www.clearlightventures……elesscard/ another (very satisfactory) safety card
https://ehtrust.org/american-academy-pediatrics-issues-new-recommendations-reduce-exposure-cell-phones/ update on AAP recommendations for safe phone use

Slightly off-topic

http://www.naturalnews.com/201…..hoice.html
http://www.bbc.com/news/busine…..s-39894267 – one day they might consider themselves fortunate…
http://www.bbc.com/news/techno…..y-39895898 – faster phone charging – so people can spend even more time on Facebook?

Internet addiction

Papers

http://journals.plos.org/ploso…..ne.0175136 – ‘long-term mobile phone use may be associated with an increased risk of glioma.’
http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/doc…..eload=true – electrified pavements
http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/doc…..t/7916592/ – a cautionary approach from engineers? – IEEE
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28490961 – chickpeas affected, but a warning for humans too – ‘ cell phones and laptop should not be used unnecessarily to avoid possible genotoxic and carcinogenic effects’
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28490964 – no surprise to the many people who struggle with candida and have related it to EMF exposure
‘radiation exposed animals have had significantly higher yeast load’
http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/doc…..t/7915871/ – ‘smart suit’ for wireless transmission – recall the battle firefighters had to get cell towers removed from fire stations? And now this.
http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/doc…..t/7916322/ – dirty electricity – within ICNIRP guidelines, so it must be OK

And finally…..

Another opportunity for electronic fraud?
http://newstarget.com/2017-05-…..ward.html- another opportunity for electronic fraud?

Just as well the banks are on the case
http://www.bbc.com/news/busine…..s-39881924
‘More banks are rolling out voice authentication as a more secure and less intrusive way for customers to establish their identity. ‘
