United Kingdom: Bristol University Suicides Were Not a Failure in Care, Says Academic

Our comment:  The city of Bristol has been running the first public trials of 5G technology since March this year.  Is there a connection between exposure to this new technology and the abnormally high number of suicides at Bristol University?  The university is conducting research on 5G technology.

Bristol University suicides were not a failure in care, says academic
Jack Malvern, The Times, 22 June 2018

A spate of student suicides has been caused by a “cluster effect” rather than failings in pastoral care, an academic at Bristol University has said.

David Gunnell, professor of epidemiology at the university and a leading authority on suicide research, said that it was his instinct that the link between the ten deaths since October 2016 was the result of a phenomenon in which one death in a community can influence another.

Parents of students who killed themselves while studying at the university reacted to the suggestion with anger and distress. They argue that Bristol’s response to the deaths, including plans to spend £1 million on a programme to improve its provision of pastoral care, highlight current shortcomings.

New Wireless Electric Vehicle Technology Will Threaten Driver and Passenger Health

NEW wireless electric vehicle technology will threaten driver and passenger health
Posted by: Lori Alton, staff writer, naturalhealth365.com, 20 June 2018

(Naturalhealth365) With most electric vehicles requiring charging every 100 to 250 miles, engineers are scrambling to find a more ‘convenient’ wireless charging options. Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder have developed a method of “on the go” wireless charging – in which charging plates would be installed in roadways, while a start-up technology company outside Philadelphia is focusing on stationary wireless charging.

Radiation from wireless systems and cell phones has already been associated with many health problems like, multiple sclerosis, cancer, infertility and cognitive problems. Natural health experts are very concerned that the high frequencies involved in wireless car charging will only add to the problem – posing a real and present danger to human health and the environment.

Natural Resources Defense Council Takes Action Against FCC Regarding 5G Small Cell Tower Installation

Natural Resources Defense Council Takes Action Against FCC Regarding 5G Small Cell Tower Installation — Requesting Statements From Concerned Citizens.
By B.N. Frank, activistpost.com, 19 June 2018

The NRDC is challenging the legality of the March 30, 2018 Federal Communications Commission (FCC) order exempting “small wireless facilities” from environmental review.

According to Arthur Firstenburg from the Cell Tower Task Force, The NRDC is requesting statements be sent to them about biological and environmental harm caused by 5G and other wireless infrastructure.

These statements are necessary to sue the FCC in court and invalidate the FCC’s recent action.

Statements should be emailed by July 2, 2018 to nrdcinfo@nrdc.org with “Reference Case No. 18-1135” in the subject line.

In September 2017, 180 scientists and doctors demanded a moratorium on the installation of 5G small cell tower infrastructure due to biological and environmental risks.

Insurance Companies Are Not Covering Cell Phone and WiFi Radiation Exposure Health Issues

Did You Know That Insurance Companies Are Not Covering Cell Phone and WiFi Radiation Exposure Health Issues? How Lloyd’s of London and Others Figure In.
By B.N. Frank, activistpost.com, 22 June 2018

This isn’t breaking news:

High Risk Insurer, Lloyd’s of London, won’t cover any-wireless radiation hazards. This includes cell phones, cell towers, digital and wireless utility “Smart” Meters, and other wireless devicesand infrastructure. Click here to review their policy.

Insurance firms are also refusing to cover cell phone manufacturers and wireless carriers. They are predicting more claims and costs. 60% won’t insure purveyors against future lawsuits.

School officials who refuse to replace WiFi with wired Internet may eventually be held liable for harm caused to students and staff.

Swiss RE warns of large liability losses and classified EMF-related health issues in the highest impact category. Other technology issues they discussed included cyber attacks, power blackouts, workplace safety and Big Data – all of which are worsened by digital and wireless “Smart” Meters.

We spend an average of five hours every day on mobile apps. We interact with apps about 88 times per day. That’s compared to an average of 1.4 hours of TV. We’re addicted to our phones. We need to post. We want the “likes.” And it’s all altering our brains in ways we might not be very comfortable with.

In a packed session at Cannes Lions on Tuesday called “Addicted to Likes,” Omnicom’s Hearts & Science CEO Scott Hagedorn and former Google design ethicist Tristan Harris delivered a pretty dire warning to the advertising agencies, marketers, brands, tech companies, and social platforms gathered in the south of France.

Spain: Scientific Conferences Stop 5G in Segovia: the Negative Impact on Health of Future Telecommunications Networks

Scientific Conferences Stop 5G in Segovia: the negative impact on health of future telecommunications networks
By Electro and Chemical Sensitive for the Right to Health (EQSDS) (translation)

Experts predict an increase in health problems associated with increased electromagnetic pollution

Society is still not aware of the health impact of technological development models at the service of industrial interests.

This weekend, June 16 and 17, the 1st Scientific Conference on 5G and Health took place in Segovia. In coordination with the Stop 5G Platform, the Electro and Chemical Sensitive Association for the Right to Health organized the event. During the morning, at the former Faculty of Education, in front of some 200 people from different places, experts in electromagnetic fields and health sciences gave an overview of the implications of the excessive development of radiofrequency transmission technologies. Among the speakers were Dr. Annie Sasco, former director of epidemiology at IARC and Ceferino Maestu, director of the Bioelectromagnetism Laboratory at the Polytechnic University of Madrid. In the afternoon, a Human Chain was formed in the center of the city that ended with the reading of a Manifesto in the Plaza Mayor. The Human Chain wore a woven scarf 300 meters long symbolizing the balance between the traditional and the modern through the safe use of technology. At the end of the tour, shoes were placed on the ground as a reminder of those affected who for health or economic reasons could not attend.

The culture secretary has called on more schools to ban mobile phones.

Matt Hancock said he admired those headteachers who did not allow their use during the school day and linked social media use with the problem of bullying among young children.

Hancock told the Guardian last week that he does not allow his children to have their own phones or to use social media, but dismissed the idea of legislating to stop their use in schools.

And, he returned to the subject in an article for Wednesday’s Daily Telegraph, in which he put the onus on headteachers.

The measure was announced Thursday in a post-cabinet press conference held at the Prime Minister’s office in Kimihurura, that discussed the need for improvement in the use of ICT devices in primary and secondary schools putting emphasis on banning cell phones and developing mechanisms to ensure compliance.

Education minister Dr Eugène Mutimura noted that students should only concentrate on their education and observe discipline while in school.

“Mobile telephones distract students and can tempt them into lead them to various consequences,” said Mutimura during the press briefing.
