Nothing radically new – still calling for:
Precautionary Principle to be applied especially in relation to children
Moratorium on 5G
Reclassification as 2A carcinogen
More and better research
Predictions for a more rational and safer future
Reads like a list of wishes, applied common sense and actual possibilities. Surely stopping the microwaving of children should be on the list somewhere – maybe he thinks that won’t happen. The body of the article covers the issues quite well..

No mention of microwaves or phones, which is odd, as Devra Davis thinks it’s one of the best documented and researched areas.
