‘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. ‘

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….

One commentator thinks 5G is more hype than substance – used to be known as ‘vapour-ware’ in IT circles.
‘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?

Thorough (German) review on non-ionising radiation risks, English translation. Relatively easy reading – not too technical.
….contrast with this pathetic effort, apparently from Harvard.
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…..?
