‘I see electrosmog as a disaster for mankind. Because it knocks down the innate immune system, diseases ranging from Alzheimer’s and arthritis to diabetes are being exacerbated by 4G exposure. Numbing of the immune system over the years also accelerates diseases of the aging. …… I estimate that maybe 10% of the population is already suffering the damaging effects of 4G and WiFi radiation,………We need to communicate the huge range of illnesses that EMF causes, instead of focusing on cancers and being sidetracked by SAR. Any level of microwave radiation affects human biology, not just the stronger signals.
….Allowing this technology [5G] to be used without proving its safety is reckless in the extreme, as the millimetre waves are known to have a profound effect on all parts of the human body.”
Prof Trevor Marshall
[Note: Next week’s news may be early/late/non-existent/truncated due to previous commitments.]
This week the World Health Organisation (WHO) drifts back into focus with a new paper from Lennart Hardell.
‘By now it is time for laymen, NGOs and scientists to exert pressure on politicians to change the WHO agenda on RF radiation and health hazards and decide that WHO’s purpose is to support world health instead of industry interests.’
Microwave News: ‘Does ICNIRP have too many COIs for its outsized role @WHO #RF review? Hardell says yes. WHO: no problem’
Joel Moskowitz – comment and some history http://www.saferemr.com/2013/05/upcoming-who-meeting-on-radiofrequency.html
In essence Hardell comes to the same conclusion as Olga Sheean, although he expresses it very differently (remember this – https://olgasheean.com/who-harm/?)
As does the documentary ‘Microwaves, science and lies’.
And other bodies are equally guilty
FCC – https://ethics.harvard.edu/files/center-for-ethics/files/capturedagency_alster.pdf
CDC – http://www.saferemr.com/2016/01/new-york-times-expose-of-cdcs.html?spref=tw – good coverage of this sorry tale from Joel Moskowitz
And comment from Dariusz Leszczynski on an unrelated article, but which is very relevant here: ‘First were cars. Now electric appliances. Coming are cell phones emitting more radiation than safety limits permit. Can we trust industry?’
Seems that it’s not only industry which cannot be trusted.
It’s apparent that we cannot depend on even the WHO (the highest health authority in the world?) to protect us from this microwave madness – we have to do it ourselves as far as we can and take responsibility for self-education, self defence and political action.

Some interesting stuff here. Industry expressing concern about unclear standards, in-fighting and cost of delivery.
‘it may be economically feasible to deploy 5G only in the densest cities like New York and San Francisco.’ So at least the rest of us may be spared
‘you may as well just watch TV with your cellular connection and cancel your cable subscription’ Seems that none of these genius’s have the wit to reverse this and ask why bother with 5G when we can do all this with cable at a fraction of the cost and with no health or environmental concerns.
http://www.lightreading.com/mobile/5g/how-much-will-5g-cost-no-one-has-a-clue/a/d-id/733753 More concerns about costs. Surely the industry has done a cost-benefit analysis? Or is the obsession with gee-whizz wireless technology so great that cost is not an issue? Maybe the telecom companies will bankrupt themselves and we can all relax. Or maybe the government will bale them out and we can all pay to be irradiated whether we want it or not.

What the newsfeeds are saying
From an article not directly related to EMFs – ‘European courts may consider vaccines as a possible cause of illness, even when there is no specific scientific proof linking a certain vaccine to a specific health condition’. Could the same logic be applied to mobile phones? Sounds similar to what happened in at least one of the Italian court cases.

http://www.sacbee.com/news/loc…..51849.html – Mainly precautionary in tone, but some experts still reciting the same, tired old mantras ‘David Rocke, a professor of biostatistics and biomedical engineering at UC Davis, said that when it comes to a cellphone’s cancer-causing potential, “the physics make it impossible……There’s really no scientific evidence that a cellphone is hazardous to your health, unless you’re holding it when you’re driving a car.”
“No health risks have been established from exposure to the low-level radio signals used for mobile communications,”
Joel Moskowitz: ‘What prevents CDPH from adopting the cell phone guidance document?’
Dariusz Leszczynski ‘Influential industry lobby prevents…’
For once I think Prof Leszczynski has missed the point. Lobbying doesn’t prevent anything. It’s gutless regulators and politicians who prevent it.
Cell tower wars and woes continue around the world – some victories, some defeats.
