Time to Wake Up to the Global Public Health Issue of Phonegate

Time to Wake Up to the Global Public Health Issue of Phonegate
by Meris Michaels, 23 May 2019

Phonegate Press Book
For over 20 years, cell phone users have been knowingly misled about their true levels of exposure to radiofrequency (RF) waves under real conditions of use in contact with the body. Consumers have been doubly misled by not having been informed by the public authorities to keep the phone away from the body.

This issue concerns all of us and those we love. Most of us have cell phones. We hold them against our heads, keep them switched on in a pants or shirt pocket or tucked in a bra. Many of us are unaware that cell phone manufacturers are testing phones at a certain distance from the body, not in the ways that most of us use them, touching the body. These same manufacturers warn us to keep the phone at a distance from the body.

The authorities have been lax in implementing public health campaigns and recommendations to reduce RF exposure, especially regarding children, pregnant women and medically sensitive populations who are more vulnerable to these waves.

Poor Semen Quality in Switzerland

Never keep a cell phone in your pocket. The Phonegate Alert Association has revealed that some 250 cell phones tested in contact with the body expose users to radio frequencies exceeding European (and Swiss) regulatory limits and must be updated or withdrawn from the market. This issue was raised at the National Council of the Swiss Parliament in March of this year. When will the authorities correctly inform cell phone users?

Poor semen quality in Switzerland
Press Release, unige.ch, 22 May 2019

Researchers at UNIGE have carried out the first nationwide study on semen quality of young Swiss men. And their verdict? Only 38% of men have semen parameter values above the norms set by World Health Organization for fertile men.

[Full text of study published in the journal, "Andrology".]

Over the last fifty years, a marked decrease in sperm count has been observed in the Western World. But what about the situation in Switzerland? Up to now, no study had evaluated the reproductive health of Swiss young men. Researchers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, working in collaboration with other institutions and with a logistical support from the Swiss army, have undertaken the first nationwide assessment of the semen quality of men between the age of 18 and 22. The scientists assessed three important parameters: the number of spermatozoa, their motility and morphology. The results were well below the reference values issued by the World Health Organisation (WHO). The current situation is a matter of concern since the poor semen quality of Swiss men is associated with an increase in the incidence of testicular cancer. You can read about the study in the journal Andrology.

5G auction / suffering of affected people

The environmental physician Barbara Dohmen from Murg (Baden-Württemberg) wrote an open letter to the President of the Federal Network Agency on the occasion of the 5G frequency auction. From a medical point of view, she impressively describes the dramatic consequences that complete radiation will have for electrohypersensitive people. Freiburg, 17.3.2019

Dear Mr. Homann,

As you will chair, as President of the Federal Network Agency, the auction of the 5th mobile phone generation, 5G, next Tuesday, 19.3.2019, I would like to urge you to inform yourself about the probable unknown effects of mobile phone technology in the health sector. There is a worrying increase in morbidity that we doctors trained in environmental medicine have observed in our professional lives since the beginning of the expansion of wireless communication technology with 2G, 3G, 4G:

New York: Activist Sues CenHud, State Agency Over Meters

Activist sues CenHud, state agency over meters
By Daniel Axelrod, Times Herald-Record, May 17, 2019
A local citizen activist is suing the New York Public Service Commission and Central Hudson Gas & Electric to allow for non-electric frequency emitting analog meters.

5G: The Unreported Global Threat
by Dr. Devra Davis, medium.com, 18 May 2019

Accusations of Russia lobbying are ricocheting around the media and have now been extended through a front-page article in the New York Times positing that scientists and consumer advocates calling to halt 5G have fallen under the spell of RT, a news network registered as a Russian foreign agent in the U.S. Could it be a coincidence that following on the heels of the NY Times story, the Wall Street Journal and the UK Telegraph have echoed the same smear of guilt by association, portraying scientists who warn of the potential environmental and health damages of 5G as untethered alarmists unwittingly linked to Russian propaganda? These otherwise credible media sources ignore the substantial body of science pinpointing hazards of wirelessradiation and 5G detailed in independent journalistic investigations that have appeared extensively in media throughout Europe and been covered by majornetworks.

New York Times Denies Health Impacts of 5G Cellphone Technology

New York Times Denies Health Impacts of 5G Cellphone Technology
By Richard Gale and Dr. Gary Nullglobalresearch.ca, 17 May 2019

Electromagnetic frequency's (EMFs) biomolecular effects on living organisms

The New York Times continues to descend further into spewing fiction masquerading as news. Its most recent analysis challenges Judith Miller‘s delusional screed about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction as sheer nonsense. Evidently the Times has a propensity for disgracing itself. Now the newspaper’s latest low is William Broad’s essay, “Your 5G Phone Won’t Hurt You But Russia Wants You to Think Otherwise,” touting a wild conspiracy theory that 5G technology’s severe risks to human health and the environment is a covert Russian plot intended to sow confusion into the minds of the American public.

As a patriotic loyalist of Russo-paranoia, Broad has dreamed up a hallucination that Russia is preparing to outpace the US’s strategy to dominate the global “internet of everything” in the race to launch 5G technology globally. Aside from Broad’s otherwise corporate friendly stances supporting hydrofracking, genetically modified foods, and the myth that vaccines do not contribute to neurological disorders, he has produced some excellent work about Yoga culture and North Korea. Yet these are hardly topics that would enable a person to speak intelligently about electromagnetic frequency’s (EMFs) biomolecular effects on living organisms.

Cellphone Industry Continues to Control the Safety Message

Cellphone industry continues to control the safety message

In the U.S., the industry has influenced science, regulators, public perception and government policy

When industry wants science to say something, how does it do it?

Last year, The Nation showed us how in its special investigation, How Big Wireless Made Us Think That Cell Phones Are Safe.

In 1993, a lawsuit alleged that cellphones caused a woman’s terminal brain cancer. As wireless stocks headed downward, the industry unleashed a five-fold response.

This tactical plan can be used by any threatened industry on any issue at any time to influence science, regulators, public perception and government policy.

Citizens beware.

The Swiss organization Pro Natura has published new studies, which indicate that the frequencies used by 5G increase the body temperature of insects. Are we taking another step against nature?

Both insects and 5G need antennas: insects use them as an olfactory organ, and 5G use them to propagate waves, which are invisible, but not harmless. Now, new studies indicate that insects are sensitive to 5G waves: A recent study has shown that insects exposed to 5G radiation have experienced an increase in their body temperature.

Pro Natura runs an intense insect protection campaign called "En
semble contre la disaparition des insectes! "(in English: "Together against the disappearance of insects!"). The campaign addresses the many problems we humans are causing our tiny cohabitants: intensive agriculture, pesticides, the disappearance of ecosystems, light pollution, and now, 5G radiation.

5G Health Fears Exist but NYT & WSJ Blame Them on RT

5G health fears exist but NYT & WSJ blame them on RT (15 May 2019 - 11 min.)

Following a NY Times hit piece on RT’s 5G coverage, now the Wall Street Journal has followed suit. RT’s Dan Cohen reports from a protest in Bethesda, Maryland, that highlights the dangers of 5G radiation and mentions the demonstration against 5G in Bern in which over 1,000 people participated.   Filmmaker Sabine E. Gemayel discusses her documentary, Generation Zapped, about the risks of wireless radiation and 5G.
