Should we be afraid of waves?
by Sandra Imsand, Fédération romande des consommateurs, 6 December 2016 (translated by the Editor of "Towards Better Health"

Harmful or inoffensive, electromagnetic fields emitted by electronic gadgets continue to divide scientists and the population

High frequency radiation?  The subject has been written about extensively for many years.  While 97% of the population over age 16 uses a mobile phone or a smartphone, the harm caused by waves is disregarded.  It is all the more problematical as inumerous devices are emitting all the time.  From connected watches to eyeglasses to enhanced reality, the number of gadgets carried permanently on oneself or close to the head is alarming.

Stealth Canada - Deep-Sixing the Science on Wireless Radiation

STEALTH CANADA—deep-sixing the science on wireless radiation
by Olga Sheean, olgasheean.com
15 December 2016

Health Canada is inspiring activism in even the most passive Canadians (especially those harmed by wireless microwave radiation from WiFi, cell phones etc)—motivating them to protect their own health, ensure their own survival, stand up for their rights, and tap into their compassion and humanity—since Health Canada seems incapable of doing any of these things for them.

Teachers, too, are being challenged to become empowered. If they dare to test the levels of radiation coming from WiFi routers in their school, to protect their own health as well as the health of the schoolchildren, or if they turn the router off when not in use, they can lose their job. One teacher in BC—Maria Plant—who has been teaching for 30 years, was forced to retire because the WiFi in her school became intolerable, and she now has such severe electro-sensitivity, as a result, that she can no longer lead a normal life. "It's been emotionally and physically devastating to slowly succumb to this disorder of EHS [electromagnetic hypersensitivity]," she says, "as it forced me to give up the two loves of my life: teaching and physical outdoor activity, because my inner ear and balance are most severely affected by radiofrequency signals."

Health Implications of Long-term Exposure to Electrosmog by Karl Hecht (English edition 2016)

Karl Hecht: Health Implications of Long-term Exposure to Electrosmog (English edition 2016)
Competence Initiative - kompetenzinitiative.net

Full text
Extracts from the Foreword:

"The review findings by Hecht—which disappeared into the government archives as soon as they had been submitted and which we are now making available to the public in this brochure in its most comprehensive form to date—are based on the assessment of 878 Russian studies between 1960 and 1997. To pretend as if there were no connection between microwave technologies from the past and those from today is like burying one's head in the sand. This tactic is well illustrated by the current politics regarding radar victims and the increasing group of persons with electromagnetic hypersensitivity."
...

"As the sixth brochure in our brochure series Effects of
Wireless Communication Technologies, we present the brochure by Karl Hecht on the Health Implications of Long-term Exposure to Electrosmog. The author documents and confirms the serious consequences of observed tendencies to consciously ignore and deny existing health implications. All six brochures of this series supplement each other, exposing a sick government system called health and environmental protection, which exploits the present and future of public health for its
own irresponsible political agenda."

Switzerland: "No" to More Mobile Radiation

Council chamber in session.  © www.parlament.ch 
Switzerland: "No" to more mobile radiation

8 December 2016 (translated by Google with grammatical corrections)

Doctors against an increase in limit values

In the vote of 8 December 2016, the Council of States voted against the motion to increase limit values ​​for mobile phone antennas, with 20 to 19 votes and 3 abstentions. In order to ensure the implementation of motion 163007 "Ensure modernization of mobile radio networks as quickly as possible", both the National Council and the Council of States would have had to vote for this. The motion is thus off the table.

The pressure on the senators was great. Before the vote, they were sent letters and e-mail from various sources. Many concerned and affected organizations and citizens tried to influence this highly-charged issue.

Ahead of the debate, particularly the Medical Association FMH (to which belong more than 40,000 physicians) and doctors of AefU [Doctors for the Protection of the Environment] urged Councillors to refrain from voting for an increase in limit values because of the unclear health effects of mobile phone radiation. The FMH pointed out that the World Health Organization (WHO) is currently investigating new studies, the results of which are to be available only in 2018.

In 1978, Writer Paul Brodeur Warned Us the Microwave Menace Is Zapping Us All

"Is microwave radiation suspected of having any genetic effects? Yes."

The Microwave Menace Is Zapping Us All, Warns Writer Paul Brodeur
by Jim Jerome, people.com/archive, 30 January 1978

“A lot of people hold on to the notion,” says author Paul Brodeur, “that what you can’t see can’t hurt you. If I’ve learned anything in my last 10 years of work, it’s that what you can’t see can kill you.” Brodeur’s enemies list of environmental hazards to human life includes detergent enzymes, cancer-causing asbestos fibers and ozone-depleting fluorocarbons in spray cans. But none of these, he claims, is so chillingly insidious and pervasive as the subject of his latest investigative work, The Zapping of America—namely, microwave radiation. Americans, says Brodeur, are routinely “zapped” by missile-tracking radars, TV transmitters, microwave ovens and even CB radios, exposing them to potentially injurious or even lethal doses of radiation. Moreover, he claims, the full danger of microwaves has been self-servingly denied—or covered up—by the so-called “military-industrial complex. “A Boston-area native and graduate of Andover and Harvard, Brodeur worked in Army Counterintelligence in Germany during the mid-’50s before joining The New Yorker as a staff writer. A resident of Manhattan, Brodeur, 46, recently discussed microwave radiation with PEOPLE’S Jim Jerome at Brodeur’s Cape Cod vacation home.

Switzerland: Vaudois and Genevois Against Antenna Radiation

Vaudois and Genevois against antenna radiation
by Arthur Grosjean@arthurflash, Tribune de Genève, 8 December 2016 (translated by the Editor of "Towards Better Health")

Mobile telephony:  The senators refused to increase the power of antennas, deeming that health effects are not insignificant

The telecoms operators will not be able to increase the power of mobile phone antennas.  The Council of States refused any easing [of the norms] as the motion of the Federal Council had requested.  The vote was very close, 20 against, 19 for, and 3 abstentions.  Party affiliation did not play a decisive role.

The motion had, however, received large support in the commission.  The rapporteur Hans Wiki (PLR/NW) explained at length the need to ease current norms.  "There are more than 15,000 antennas in Switzerland and 6,000 have already reached the authorized limit value.  A modest adaptation of these values would allow us to benefit from good coverage of the mobile network, indispensable for the population and the economy."  He reiterated that the transfer of data is exploding and that, in four years, 20 to 30 million objects will be connected in Switzerland in an increasingly digitized society.

Switzerland: News from Parliament: Council of States Buries Motion on Easing Non-Ionizing Radiation Norms


News from the Swiss Parliament
rts.info, 8 December 2016

Mobile telephony:  No question of easing radiation norms

The Council of States has buried a motion by the National Council on limit values for non-ionizing radiation by a narrow margin (20 votes against, 19 for, and 3 abstentions).

The Upper Chamber believes there is no question of placing the demands of the operators before the health of the population because there exists too much doubt about the effects of these rays.

The development of the mobile network is being held back in Switzerland by very strict conditions regarding protection against non-ionizing radiation, pleaded Hans Wicki (PLR/NW).  Lowering norms could facilitate construction of new mobile phone antennas.

The only other option is to contruct thousands of new base stations.  Of the 15,000 existing mobile phone installations, more than 6,000 have already reached the authorized limit values.

Samsung's Aggressive Battery Design Led to the Galaxy Note 7 Explosions

The battery for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 had very
thin margins for safety.
Report: Samsung's aggressive battery design led to the Galaxy Note 7 explosions
by Alan F., phonearena.com, 4 December 2016

According to a new report, Samsung's aggressive design for the battery employed by the Galaxy Note 7might have been the culprit behind the multiple explosions that led the company to pull the phablet from the market. The way the cell was designed, a pair of polymer layers drenched in electrolytes was used to separate a positive layer made of lithium cobalt oxide, and a negative layer made of graphite. Should those two layers meet, the electrolytes would heat up causing an explosion.

As the report points out, compressing the battery would force the positive and negative layers to squeeze together. Samsung itself said that it might have been too aggressive with the design. In addition, there is a normal amount of swelling that takes place. Some of it comes from the pressure on the battery created through pushing on the back cover (for example, by putting the phone in one's back pocket and then sitting on a chair).

5 reasons why students should control their cell phone usage
indiatoday.in, 2 December 2016

If parents want their children to stop using smartphone, they themselves should refrain themselves first from using one, says a child Psychiatrist Director. Is your child's brain getting affected by excessive use of cell phones?

With the advent of advanced technology, growing use of mobile phones and other gadgets are considerably harming the younger generation. Students are developing a strong connection with their mobile phones, which is leading to a massive loss in their concentration and time spent in studies. Parents and teachers usually face problem in combating the distraction of students.

The Link Between Electromagnetic Pollution and Lyme Disease and How to Remediate Your Environment for a Faster Recovery

The Link Between Electromagnetic Pollution and Lyme Disease and How to Remediate Your Environment for a Faster Recovery
by Connie Strasheim • www.ProHealth.com • December 2, 2016

We are all awash in a sea of electromagnetic fields (EMFs), which come from a variety of sources, including power lines, cell phones, smart meters, Wi-Fi, microwave towers, appliances and other places. Hundreds, if not thousands of studies have proven the detrimental effects of manmade electromagnetic fields upon the body, yet the amount of electromagnetic fields in the environment increases exponentially every year.

What’s more, studies have shown that pathogenic microbes multiply more quickly and act more virulently in the presence of EMFs and that healthy, beneficial bacteria that the body needs to fight disease multiply more slowly. If you have Lyme disease this is important to understand as it means that your recovery can become compromised if you are living in a high-EMF environment.

Thomas Rau, MD of the renowned Swiss Paracelsus Clinic stated in an interview on ElectromagneticHealth.org: “Cultures of normal human endogenous bacterial cultures grow much less when exposed to EMR. They grow less when they are around a mobile phone, a tower or cordless phone. Growing less good bacteria in your body means you will have an overgrowth of bad bacteria that can result in things like Lyme disease. Especially from the east coast of the USA, we have many patients with Lyme.”

In 2014, Belgium Banned Mobile Phones and Mobile Phone Advertising for Children

The sale of this type of mobile phone
for children under age 7 is banned
in Belgium.
Mobile Phones and Children
health.belgium.be, 12 January 2016

The use of the mobile phone by children is a special point of attention. Children may be more sensitive to radio waves. Children absorb twice as much radiation in the brain than adults do, and 10 times more in the bone marrow of the skull. In addition, due to the popularity of the mobile phone, the cumulative exposure of the current generation of children will be much higher by the time they reach their adulthood than that of the current adults. Therefore, caution is called for.

For this reason, from the 1st of March 2014 no mobile phone which has been designed specifically for small children, may be brought on to the Belgian market. It concerns adapted mobile phones, meant for kids under 7 years of age, e.g. with only a few keys, with a form attractive to children.

Andreas Maurer is an editor at "Schweiz am Sonntag".

An investigative report shows how contaminated air enters the cockpit.

In the cockpit and in the cabin of the Airbus A330 of Swiss the smell of hydraulic oil spread five minutes after take-off in Zurich. The 34-year-old pilot experienced headaches and put on the oxygen mask...  The pilot made the right decision, says the Swiss safety investigation authority (SUST). It has published its report on the "serious incident" of 26 November 2015 this week. The hydraulic oil from the manufacturer Exxon, which got into the air, was a potential hazard. The passengers and crew were exposed to the toxic vapors for another hour. The fully-fueled aircraft was too heavy for a landing. Therefore, it circulated an hour in the waiting queue to burn kerosene. Several passengers and flight attendants suffered nausea and headaches. A stewardess suffered disturbances of taste and smell the following day.

Prof. Belpomme:  "Electrosensitivity is not a psychiatric illness"
by Sylvie Dellus, santemagazine.fr, 11 January 2016 (translated by the Editor of "Towards Better Health")

A battery of tests is sufficient to diagnose hypersensitivity to electromagnetic waves.  The results of a study led by Prof. Belpomme have just been published in a scientific revue.  He answers our questions.

For several years, Prof. Dominique Belpomme, oncologist, has been interested in the phenomenon of intolerance to electromagnetic waves (from cell phones, Wi-Fi...) and sensitivity to multiple chemical products, two syndromes which have many points in common.

In his latest study, results were just published in "Reviews on Environmental Health", he highlights anomalies in the blood and urine.  The diagnosis is based on a battery of tests.  Treatment can be proposed.  Prof. Belpomme explains.

Summary of French TV Program "C à vous" : Interview with Professor Dominique Belpomme

We have had a request for a transcript of the interview with Professor Dominique Belpomme during the French TV program, "C à vous" which aired on 6 April 2016 on the theme "Taking better care of ourselves".  The entire program is not available to us in Switzerland, however, we have access to a 10-minute segment which includes the interview with Prof. Belpomme. (View segment in French.)  Following is a summary of this segment by the Editor of "Towards Better Health".

Anne Sophie Lapix, presenter of the program, refers to Prof. Belpomme's newest book, "Comment naissent les maladies" [how do diseases arise?] where he says 70-90% of cancers are linked to the environment.

Prof. Belpomme replies that especially now, there is molecular proof.   He refers to "epigenetics": the study of changes in organisms caused by modification of gene expression. Radiation, chemical substances, microbes modify proteins in the cell and gene expression which explains why cancers in particular are linked to the environment.

A Physician's Testimony of His Electrohypersensitivity

"In Colombia, not a single medical doctor is trained in any of the universities to treat this problem [microwave syndrome]. It’s simply not taught anywhere in pre-graduate or graduate programs in medical schools around the country. Plus, being a medical doctor, I know of the IGNORANCE and DOGMATISM of the medical profession." 

The Dr. Carlos Sosa M.D. Story

electrosensitivesociety.com, (date unknown)

Please let me introduce myself. My name is Dr. Carlos Sosa, M.D. (physician and surgeon) and I’m presently living in Medellin, Colombia in South America.

During the month of May 2006, I was forced to leave my house because of the symptoms caused to me and my family by the microwaves of a wireless Internet (WiFi) mast (or antenna). The structure had been in our building for nearly three years and the company that owned it had been slowly raising the transmission frequency.

In May/06 I started feeling a terrible sense of unwellness: headaches, dizziness, insomnia, nausea, irritability, amnesia or forgetfulness and lack of attention or concentration capacity. I couldn’t bear being close to my house or to any other microwave mast, be it cell phone or WiFi antennas. I had to leave my house together with my whole family just to find out that the city was flooded by some 4000 masts that wouldn’t ‘t leave a single irradiated spot for us to live in.

Criticism of the Wi-Fi Directives for Use in Schools in the Canton of Geneva

Criticism of the Wi-Fi directives for use in primary and secondary schools in the canton of Geneva
by Meris Michaels, 25 November 2016

Following is our criticism of the Wi-Fi directives for use in primary and secondary schools in the canton of Geneva, cited by the Geneva State Councillor in charge of education in reply to ARA's letter on digital technology in schools.  They are based on WHO and ICNIRP recommendations, acknowledge only thermal effects on health, and do not take into account the growing numbers of electrohypersensitive persons.  They are outdated and ignore the many independent scientific studies showing biological health effects.

The directives were issued in November 2010 and updated in June 2015. They cite WHO Fact Sheet no. 304 on EM fields and public health dated May 2006 - the link to the French version is invalid.  It concludes, "considering the very low exposure levels and research results collected to date, there is no convincing scientific evidence that the weak RF signals from base stations and wireless networks cause adverse health effects."

Wi-Fi, relay antennas, smartphones... Marie no longer can stand waves which make her sick. How can one live a life that is saturated with them?

Electrohypersensitivity: what is it?

To say the least, for the past 11 years, electromagnetic waves have been ruining my life. They are a slow poison to my health. And the poison is everyhwere: relay antennas, mobile phones, Wi-Fi, cordless phones, microwave ovens, and electricity. Pure hell.

To save myself, I am tinkering with ersatz solutions.

When the pressure in my head from the waves becomes too painful, I wrap my skull in aluminum foil from eyebrows to neck. This makes a screen against the waves which bounce off, and in ten minutes, the suffering has lessened. I do the same in the subway, which I take almost never because, after four stops, I feel my head squeezed while a drill incessantly perforates each ear, back and forth. The effect is similar with the mobile phone blockers at the movies: pain, like hitting my head against a wall. I always have a roll of aluminum foil in my handbag, but the look from other people is difficult to bear. I feel very ill at ease.

HOLLAND, MICH. - There's been no recall, but drivers of several large SUV's say their GM vehicles are making them sick.

The complaints have been acknowledged by the automaker -- a Holland-area family says there is no solution to the problem. That family contacted WZZM 13 On Your Side for help.

"I had vertigo, nausea, migraine, the whole way down, the whole way back from Florida…part of it would be a constant pressure on your ears… it's just miserable”, says Barb Francis.

It all started back in November 2014 when she and her husband paid just more $60,000 for a new 2015 Suburban at DeNooyer Chevrolet in Holland.

Virtual Reality Headsets Concern Doctors

“The immediate concerns are with the younger users because they will be prone to use them for much longer periods of time,” explained Dr. Rizzo. Those concerns include what this might mean for a young, developing brains. “You need to understand whether the brain is changing in some permanent way.” There’s also a possible increased risk of becoming near-sighted.  [No mention of exposing the brain to electromagnetic radiation.]

Virtual Reality Headsets Concern Doctors

by Dr. Mallika Marshall, boston.cbslocal.com, 14 November 2016

BOSTON (CBS) – It’s expected to be the hot holiday gift of the season: virtual reality headsets. We know it’s a cool new experience but there’s still a lot we don’t know about the technology, especially when it comes to kids.

The headset completely immerses users in a new 3D virtual world. “I felt like I was actually there.” said one first-time user. “There’s no age limit to this,” said another virtual reality fan.

But there actually is an age limit. Many of the top selling brands warn against kids using the device. Oculus Rift and Samsung VR Gear say it’s not for kids under 13. Sony PlayStation is recommended for kids 12 and up. And the HTC Vive is less specific, just saying it’s not for young children.

I live in the Valais in Switzerland, a once beautiful area with breathtaking views, once boasting over 300 sunny blue skies a year. This was due to the fact that we are surrounded by the Alps which create a natural block to the passage of clouds. Unfortunately this is a thing of the past. We are lucky if we have 50 full blue skies a year now. In any event I have counted no less than 300 days of chemtrail spraying within the last year alone and have photo graphic evidence of each day of spraying since August 2011!

I have over 10’000 photos that I’ve taken since I “discovered” chemtrails…

Cell phones emit microwave radio-frequency radiation. Fact.

This radiation has the ability to penetrate our bodies. Fact.

Our governments do virtually nothing to protect us from these dangers. Fact.

And yet there is strong evidence, multiple peer reviewed studies, to indicate that cell phones cause cancer and other diseases.

Take a look for yourself at these facts.

But first let’s just consider what cancer is.

    Doctors confirm thyroid cancer is increasing rapidly in Sweden
    stralskyddsstiftelsen.se (Swedish Radiation Protection Foundation), 26 October 2016

    A new scientific article from leading Swedish epidemiologist and oncologist Lennart Hardell’s research team confirms that there is a substantial increase in patients diagnosed with thyroid cancer during recent years in Sweden as well as in other Nordic countries. The increase has coincided with the growing use of so called ”smart phones”. These popular phones expose the radiation sensitive thyroid gland to high radiation due to the antenna’s placement at the lower part of the device. Another possible factor behind the increase is increased use of computed tomography in health care.

    Study finds men who place laptop computer on lap put testicles at risk of overheating, infertility.

    Portable computers are often used at tight contact with the body and therefore are called “laptop”. This is an improper site for the use of a Personal Computer, which consequently should be renamed to not induce customers towards an improper use.

    About laptop health, an interesting study was made by Department of Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Reproduction Medicine, University of Siena.

    The authors measured electromagnetic fields (EMFs) laptop computers produce and estimated the induced currents in the body, to assess the safety of laptop computers.

    Cellphone Radiation and Electrosmog

    This is an article from an Austrian consumers' magazine on a study undertaken by the Austrian Workers' Compensation Board.

    More awake, more tired, more forgetful

    A new study demonstrates that calling with a mobile phone affects mental performance, cell nuclei and DNA. Special attention should be paid to the exposure of children and adolescents.

    If you sum up the time spent by Austrians in calling with mobile phones and smartphones in 2015, you reach an imposing number: 39,673 years. This corresponds to the period from the beginning of the first cave paintings of Homo sapiens to the present day. For us as their modern descendants, only a few hours of mobile telephony are needed to produce demonstrable changes in cognitive performance (perceiving, thinking, deciding, reacting), cell nuclei and DNA.

    ABC's Catalyst staff to be sacked and weekly TV show format scrapped

    by Amanda Meade, The Guardian/ msn.com, 
    31 October 2016

    The ABC’s Catalyst program is to lose its weekly slot and its 11 staff – including the suspended presenter Maryanne Demasi – made redundant under a radical plan which has been approved by the ABC board.

    Under the plan the in-house magazine-style program will be replaced by 17 one-hour science specials, mainly from the independent production sector.

    But senior ABC program makers have warned that ditching the weekly half-hour program and disbanding the science unit would lead to a dumbing down of science programming and effectively kill off Australian science on television.

    Banning Tablets Is Best for Children

    The American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended
    that children ages 2 to 5 be limited to an hour a day of
    screen time.

    [And, a tablet should never be used on one's lap, especially
    if connected to Wi-Fi.]
    “One of the more troubling things I see as a pediatrician is a child getting an immunization and being handed an iPad or an iPhone to try to comfort them afterward,” says Dr. Christakis. “It often works, but think about what’s being displaced there—what they need is a hug, not an iPhone.”

    Banning Tablets Is Best for Children

    Latest guidelines recommend just one hour of screen time a day of ‘high quality programming’

    A funny thing happened when I banned tablets in my house on weekdays and curtailed their use on weekends. My children, ages 6 and 4, became less cantankerous. They also became happier, more responsive and engaged in more imaginative play. They rediscovered their toys. Outside the home, they became less demanding and better at self-regulating.

    Friday, the American Academy of Pediatrics validated my experiment, recommending that children younger than 18 months get zero screen time, and those ages 2 to 5 be limited to one hour a day—half of its prior recommendation. The group recommended that the hour be “high quality programming” that parents watch with their children.

    Brain Cancer Top Killer in Kids: Are Cellphones a Factor?
    by Sylvia Booth Hubbard, newsmax.com, 19 September 2016  

    Brain cancer is now the leading cause of cancer deaths in children, according to a new study. Researchers say a chief reason is that new treatments for leukemia — long the No. 1 killer of kids — have knocked it from the top spot in recent years.

    But some studies and experts suggest brain cancer rates in kids may be, in part, tied to the increasing use of cellphones by children and teens, and the rates of brain cancer may increase — perhaps drastically — when they become adults.

    "I think that there will be a significant, if not enormous increase in primary brain tumors among young people, but perhaps not until they reach the age of late twenties or even thirties," neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock tells Newsmax Health.

    American Academy of Pediatrics urges Caution Following Cell Phone Radiation Study

    Healthy Kids: AAP urges caution following cell phone radiation study
    by Amanda Butt, nbc16.com, 16 October 2016

    EUGENE, Ore. - For years, people have wondered if too much time spent on cell phones could be dangerous to our health. Recently, the National Toxicology Program, which is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), released partial findings from a two-year study that exposed rats to the types of radio frequency radiation that cell phones give off. Now, the American Academy of Pediatrics is hoping parents will listen closely to the findings—and take precautions.

    Dr. Pilar Bradshaw, with Eugene Pediatric Associates, treats hundreds of kids each year in her practice. She’s troubled by the recent study that found a dangerous connection between cell phone radiation and cancer.

    “The cancers that we’re talking about have shown to be very malignant, very dangerous, very hard to treat cancers in lab rats that were exposed to cell phone radiation similar to what we’re exposed to if we are using our phone while it’s placed against our ear,” Bradshaw explained.

    United States: Mobile Phone Makers Score Big Win in Radiation Suit

    "The suits here were filed as far back as 2001 in the District of Columbia Superior Court and named as defendants Motorola Inc., Verizon Wireless Inc., AT&T Inc., Cingular Wireless LLC, and others. The plaintiffs or their representatives (many of the plaintiffs have since died) allege that their use of hand-held mobile phones caused brain cancer, tumors, and other types of illness and injury."

    From Toxics Law Reporter
    Martina Barash in Washington

    Oct. 20 — The mobile phone industry scored a major victory in litigation tying the use of mobile phones to brain tumors as Washington, D.C.'s top court adopted a new test that could bar almost all of the plaintiffs’ scientific evidence (Motorola, Inc. v. Murray , 2016 BL 348817, D.C. en banc, No. 14-CV-1350, 10/20/16 ).

    The viability of at least 13 suits over the dangers of long-term exposure to mobile-phone radiation is seriously jeopardized by the court’s Oct. 20 decision to abandon its century-old test for evaluating scientific testimony in favor of the much more widely adopted federal rule.

    The case has been closely watched by a broad array of business and medical groups, which tried to steer the ruling in their favor.

    (See comment below article here.)

    Appeals court says a different legal standard for evidence should have been used

    An appeals court in Washington, D.C., on Thursday dealt a setback to a long-running lawsuit against the wireless industry over health concerns surrounding cellphones, deciding that a different legal standard for evidence should have been applied.

    The decision by the District of Columbia Court of Appeals will further prolong the litigation, initially filed in 2001, as plaintiffs must now produce arguments on why previously submitted evidence should continue to be included under the new standard.Jeffrey Morganroth, a lawyer for the plaintiffs, said they wouldn’t back down, and that the ruling may even help get new testimony included.

    For the first time in France, a pilot removal complaint against his company. He believes that the air circulating in the aircraft would cause a “aérotoxique syndrome“.

    Collectives of seafarers and passengers have given a name to their combat: The “aérotoxique syndrome”. (Sipa Press)

    Can flying a plane be dangerous to your health? Monday, Eric B., Captain among EasyJet, will file a complaint against the airline for involuntary violations of physical integrity, endangering the lives of others and… deception on the quality of the air”. He is convinced to have been “poisoned due to small fire” in his cockpit. He is 53 years old, which makes him one of the most senior pilots at the low-cost airline that he has integrated into since February 2002. After the end of the year 2009, he began suffering from a number of disorders including (nausea, gastrointestinal, fatigue, hyperventilation, etc. ) which have led to a chain of neurological and mental judgment diseases. In 2012, his state of health has deteriorated, as well as its relations with his employer. The center of expertise of Aviation Medicine of Toulouse-Blagnac issued to him a “medical incapacity Temporary” in June 2015. The former Airbus Instructor then lost his license to fly and was later nailed to the ground, no longer allowed to fly. He now seeks an explanation to his health problems.

    AirPods: Clear Sound, Sleek Styling, and Microwave Radiation

    Clear Sound, Sleek Styling, and Microwave Radiation
    by Katia Savchuk, alumni.berkeley.edu
    18 October 2016

    The release of AirPods, those sleek wireless earbuds from Apple, is again spurring debate over the safety of radiation-emitting devices—including cell phones, WiFi routers, and wireless headsets. While U.S. regulatory agencies and some scientists believe the risk from these devices is either low or unproven, there are experts, including a UC Berkeley public health researcher, concerned about their safety.

    Joel Moskowitz, who directs the Center for Family and Community Health at the School of Public Health, warns that radiation from the Bluetooth technology in the AirPods (and other headsets) poses health risks.

    More than a dozen studies have shown that low-intensity microwave radiation similar to that emitted by Bluetooth can open up the blood-brain barrier, a layer of cells that block pathogens and toxins in the body from reaching the brain. That could lead to conditions such as autism, dementia, and brain cancer, Moskowitz says.

    What Is Killing Bees Most Of All?

    What Is Killing Bees Most Of All?
    by Makia Freeman, naturalblaze.com, 
    17 April 2016

    You may already be aware how humanity is killing bees through a variety of methods. In an earlier article The Top 4 Reasons for the Bees Dying Off, I discussed how neonicotinoid pesticides, GMOs, EMFs (electromagnetic fields) and geoengineering were all contributing to disrupting and killing bees, through phenomena like CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder). Mankind is gravely endangering its own survival on the planet by injuring the bees like this, since we are all dependent on bees for pollination and our food supply. Einstein famously said that humanity would only survive for 4 years if the bees were wiped out. There may well be more than 4 ways in which humanity is killing bees, but a recent interview with Gabe Cruz (a former cell phone industry worker who has become a kind of whistleblower and interspecies communicator) reveals that one of these threats may be the greatest of all.

    Do Cell Phones and Wi-Fi Fields Harm Our Body? - Interview with Dr. Martin Blank

    Dr. Martin Blank:  "... Protect the children. The children are most vulnerable. They are the ones that are going to suffer the most, especially with this push to do so under the guise of good education.  I think the introduction of Wi-Fi in schools is sinful. It’s criminal. Good education doesn’t need this. There are ways to bring these programs in without this technology... There’s absolutely no need to have children sit there with this exposure for however many hours they keep it on. They could bring in the programs by cables, or books, but they don’t need Wi-Fi. I think children are going to succumb to this in larger numbers, and we’re going to see a higher incidence among children of things like brain cancer. It’s not high yet, but I think it’s going to get much higher."

    Eco-WiFi: The Low Radiation WiFi Router Is Now A Reality

    The author of this article, Lloyd Burrell, says "Eco-WiFi" is "a step in the right direction", however "the safest way to connect to the Internet is via a hardwired Ethernet connection. That’s to say no WiFi.  Why? Because WiFi devices introduce radio frequency microwave radiation into your environment. The solution I’m reviewing here allows you to reduce your radiation exposures by a factor of 20.  But it’s still only a step in the right direction because you’re still exposing yourself to WiFi."

    What if I told you, you could enjoy the exact same WiFi performance as you do now but with a fraction of the radiation exposures?

    That you could stream, watch movies, listen to music, connect multiple devices all with a greatly reduced exposure to WiFi radiation?

    Low radiation WiFi is now a reality.

    But how low radiation? How does it work? Is it really safer?

    Letter Addressed to the Geneva Department of Public Instruction on Digital Technology in Schools

    Following is the letter addressed to Mrs. Marie-Claude Sawerschel, Secretary-General, Department of Public Instruction, Culture and Sport, from Association Romande Alerte, concerning the introduction of digital technology into primary and secondary schools in Geneva.

    Click here for the original letter in French.

    Morges, 3 October 2016

    Dear Madam,

    We are dismayed to learn from the Press that your Department intends to introduce tablets into primary schools and encourage pupils to bring their own devices in secondary schools. This plan is all the more shocking in that it will require the installation of Wi-Fi in classrooms, in flagrant contradiction of the precautionary principle to protect the health of our children.

    In 2011, WHO declared that radiofrequencies, including Wi-Fi, are "possibly carcinogenic" to humans. No scientific study has yet established the safety of this radiation, while thousands of studies show alarming biological effects.  The body of a child is developing and consequently, more vulnerable to waves.  You claim that "school aims to offer each child the scholastic environment most suitable to allow maximizing of potential".  Currently, no study shows the assumed benefits of new technologies.  And if a child becomes ill following exposure to waves?  And what about teachers, especially pregnant women, are they not equally exposed?

    Personal Testimony of the Health Effects of Chemtrails/ Geo-Engineering

    "I'm repeatedly seeing patterns with apparent geo-engineering activity however, when excessive microwave exposure from wi-fi, cordless phones transmitters etc and other factors can be ruled out. It's difficult to not come to the conclusion that it's having a frustratingly profound influence on my health. What has the world come to when working and living outdoors becomes a serious health hazard?!"

    Personal Testimony of the Health Effects of Chemtrails/ Geo-Engineering
    posted 30 September 2016

    An electrohypersensitive person has provided this testimony.  Such testimonies on the health effects of chemtrails are rare.  We deeply thank him for sharing his story and speaking out about this issue.  

    Thursday was a lovely day, with predominantly cumulus clouds and little to no persistent plane trails / artificial clouds and a much deeper blue than is all too usual. Natural, crisp sunlight and other natural frequencies were allowed through and by Thurs eve (likely in significant part due my cells having a chance to detox), I was feeling much better and mentally sharper than usual with my electro-sensitivity in much better check than the norm. Despite sleeping in the van cab, I slept relatively well on Thurs night and woke without a headache and with energy which is so rare, joyed to see the deep blue and cumulus clouds that greeted me above.

    The skies changed quickly on Friday, with persistent plane trails beginning to form sections of cirrus cloud above the cumulus which continued through the day and eve, with much plane traffic and the blue dimmed progressively until there was total whiteout... Last night I began to feel progressively more rough....fatigued, dizzy, nauseous, cognitively challenged, headache built and electro-sensitivity ever increasing with some intense peaks of signals.

    Recognition of Electrohypersensitivity as a Functional Impairment (Disability)

    We felt that these comments from Professor Olle Johansson in response to a post on Dave Ashton's blog ("Being Electrosensitive") merited being placed here.  Professor Johansson reminds us that electrohypersensitivity (EHS) is a functional impairment (disability).  It is the environment that is sick - "inferior and potentially toxic", not EHS persons.  "The whole environment must be accessibility-adapted... People with functional impairments should have full access to the entire society... EHS persons should be protected under the UN 22 Standard Rules on the Equalization of Opportunities for People with Disabilities/The UN Convention on Human Rights for Persons with Functional Impairments."  Sadly, this is not the case in most countries and there are attempts to move EHS from the functional impairment paradigm to the patient/disease one.

    How To Hardwire Your IPad, IPod, And IPhone

    How To Hardwire Your IPad, IPod, And IPhone
    Environmental Health Trust

    Our family has transitioned from wireless to wired. Here’s how how to hardwire your iPad, iPod, and iPhone and other favorite devices safely to the Ethernet.

    Transitioning from wireless to wired has been more of a journey than a decision. Our home was not wired for Ethernet, thus we had to learn to live with the inconvenience of cables running throughout the house. I wouldn’t trade the peace of mind, however, and my three teens have adapted well. Especially once we corded their favorite devices!

    With a little ingenuity and a few supplies, you’ll be able to enjoy your devices without the added burden of wireless frequencies.
