Love nature

I MUST congratulate you with the amount of nature you show in your paper every single week. What I am also noticing, is that through the Covid -19 crises people are becoming more conscious about the environment, they talk more about it and they enjoy it more.

Therefore, I find it so very bizarre some people backing 5G.

For 5G can have a massive effect, not just on humans, on birds, bees, insects and trees - where the radiations from 5G damage the bark.

I give you an example, my grandson has 40 bee hives near a field, the bees are dying because of the power of the radiation which throws the bees off the track to their hives.

Also, the insects figures are lowering in this country and specialists say partly because of 5G.

France: 5G: 500 environmental activists take legal action against Orange, Bouygues, SFR and Free

France: 5G: 500 environmental activists take legal action against Orange, Bouygues, SFR and Free
by Jamal Henni,  capital.fr/, 27 May 2020 - translation

CAPITAL INFO. Environmental activists request legal expertise on 5G. They have subpoenaed the four mobile operators, who will have to justify to an expert the measures they have taken to prevent any risk to health or the environment.

Environmentalists are continuing their legal battle against 5G, the mobile phone standard that is to succeed 4G and whose frequencies are due to be allocated this year. The latest action to date is a summary procedure before the Paris Court of Justice. Five hundred activists are asking the court to order an expert opinion on 5G. They filed their summons on 26 May, and request a first hearing on 30 June. Defended by the lawyer Jean-Marc Descoubes, the group is led by the founder of the Young Ambassadors for the Climate Côme Girschig, and includes a number of VIPs such as the film director Liza Azuelos, the writer Hermine de Clermont-Tonnerre and the singer Alma Higelin.

According to their subpoena, the expert will have to investigate "the implementation by mobile operators of effective measures on the prevention of risk to human health and the environment, and the establishment of the safety of this technology". In particular, he will have to visit the sites of the 5G experiments conducted by the four operators. The expert will also have to "give an opinion on the risk of encroachment on individual freedoms, and the technical means to be put in place to prevent, remedy and prevent the occurrence of these risks".

United Kingdom: A Second Lawsuit Over Health Effects of 5G Technology


A SECOND LAWSUIT IN THE UNITED KINGDOM OVER HEALTH EFFECTS OF 5G TECHNOLOGY
https://ehtrust.org, 28 May 2020

Lawyers in the UK led by solicitor Jessica Learmond-Criqui are taking the UK government to court over health concerns relating to 5G and to EMFs generally. They are trying to raise £150,000 to cover legal, court and other costs in connection with this case.

As you may know, 5G is the fifth generation of RFR technology used in the mobile telecoms industry and follows 1G – 4G. It dwarfs RFR from 1G – 4G because millions more masts, antennae, small cells, picocells etc have to be placed at short distances apart all around the country in order to develop the infrastructure to deliver the data speed promised by 5G.

The current electrosmog from 1G – 4G will become significantly worse and it is likely to result in more harm to humans, animals, trees and pollinators.

United Kingdom's Leading Human Rights Barrister to Lead Anti-5G Fight

UK’s leading human rights barrister to lead anti-5G fight

Pressure group raises £36,000 for mount legal challenge

A pressure group called “Action Against 5G” has hired the country’s top human rights barrister Michael Mansfield to challenge the UK Government over alleged health risks surrounding 5G.

At the time of writing Action Against 5G has raised nearly £36,000 out of a target of £50,000 to hire Mansfield.

Mansfield has led legal teams in high profile cases of civil liberty and miscarriages of justice such as Grenfell Tower, Lockerbie, the Ballymurphy Massacre and Stephen Lawrence.

Action against 5G claims government’s authorising of 5G is a breach of human rights.

New Paper in Health Physics: ICNIRP has Misrepresented the National Toxicology Program Study on Cell Phone Radiation


NEW PAPER IN HEALTH PHYSICS: ICNIRP HAS MISREPRESENTED THE NATIONAL TOXICOLOGY PROGRAM STUDY ON CELL PHONE RADIATION
https://ehtrust.org/, 26 May 2020

Ronald Melnick PhD recommends ICNIRP issue public advice to reduce cell phone radiation.

In a new paper published in Health Physics, Ronald Melnick PhD, a toxicologist, for 28+ years at the United States government’s National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the National Toxicology Program (NTP), and lead designer of the NTP study on cell phone radiation, analyzed criticisms made by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) of the National Toxicology Program Study on cell phone radiation. Melnick’s analysis concluded that ICNIRP “misrepresented” the study and should not have dismissed the carcinogenic effects found in experimental animals exposed to RF-EMF.

5G Starts New Conversation on RF Safety

5G Starts New Conversation on RF Safety
BY ERNEST WORTHMAN, EXECUTIVE EDITOR, AWT MAGAZINE, SENIOR MEMBER, 
IEEE, 29 May 2020

There will always be ignorance, and ignorance leads to fear – Bill Gates

Worthman
Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt — FUD – that is, perhaps, the most steadfast set of feelings held throughout the ages. Fear of the unknown has led to everything from genocide to revolution and war. And it continues today with 5G.

There is no doubt RF is dangerous. So are automobiles. The trick is to use them safely. As we have individuals using vehicles with reckless abandon, we also have 5G hawkers wanting to push out 5G without vetting its unknown hazards.

Since the beginning of the modern use of RF for communications, there have been fears that such waves can have an adverse effect on life forms. In truth, this is 100 percent true. So, we have learned, over time, how to use RF so as not to cause harm.

It is not rocket science. RF energy distribution is inversely proportional to the square of the distance. Therefore, all we must do is bind it by those two simple parameters – power and distance. We understand the physics of RF and its propagation characteristic well, make that relatively easy to accomplish safe boundaries.

United States: Latest FCC Report on Cell Phone Safety Is Fraudulent

Latest FCC Report on Cell Phone Safety Is Fraudulent
by Devra Lee Daviscitizentruth.org, May 6, 2020

District Court Judge Alsup amazed agency would be “that dumb.”

The recently released Federal Communications Commission (FCC) report on cell phone radiation relied on obsolete and unrealistic methods that are endangering the lives of millions. Contrary to headlines trumpeting that “FCC Determines iPhone Radiation Doesn’t Exceed Safety Levels,” the reality is quite the opposite.

(Photo): A man speaking on a mobile telephone Date: 16 May 2009 Source: https://www.flickr.com/photos/timparkinson/3542903169/in/photostream/ Author: Tim Parkinson

Instead of testing phones the way they are carried in the pocket or kept close to the body, the FCC relied on outdated test designs set in 1996, when gas cost little more than a dollar and phones were stored in plastic belt clips. Back then, cell phones cost about a thousand times more and were used by fewer than 16 percent of the population.

IPhone 11 May Emit Over 2 Times the Legal RF Radiation Limits

Research identifies health concerns with cellphone technology even as companies create more powerful devices

(patat/Shutterstock)
As the use of mobile devices grows, health officials have raised concerns about the harm they may have on human health. Radiofrequency (RF) radiation is a leading cause for concern, and a troubling report published by the RF Exposure Lab located in San Marcos, California, found that RF emissions put out by the iPhone 11 may be more than twice the allowable amount listed by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission.

Critics of the study quickly pointed out that the devices tested include iPhones housed in Gadget Guards using alara technology, both of which are sold by the company Penumbra Brands, which commissioned the study.

But while the test results did cause some controversy among health officials and Apple product users, the underlying concern regarding the possible adverse effects of RF radiation on the body remains.

Dutch Court Ruled 5G Deployment by the Government is Lawful

Dutch Court Ruled 5G Deployment by the Government is Lawful
From Margreet van den Berg from Stop5GNL, wearetheevidence.org, 25 May 2020

5G COURT DECISION IN THE NETHERLANDS TODAY

The Dutch State can continue the auction of 5G frequencies.

The judge: “There is difference in opinions whether 5G is safe for health. And you have to realize that a judge in an interim injunction (“kort geding”) cannot weigh the value of the different views in a scientific debate very well. I think that speaks for itself. ” (at 6 minutes into the video)

HIS CONCLUSION:

“On the basis of all the above, IT CANNOT BE CONCLUDED THAT THE STATE IS ACTING UNLAWFULLY by auctioning the frequencies in the intended manner. The claims aimed at preventing those auctions will therefore be rejected. “

France: Phonegate: [Press release] Withdrawal of the Razer Phone 2: not seeing the forest for the trees!

[Press release] Withdrawal of the Razer Phone 2: not seeing the forest for the trees!
Equipe Phonegate 25 May 2020

In France, more than 500 mobile phone models are put on the market every year*. During the same period, only about 60, on average, are controlled by the French National Frequencies Agency (ANFR). 85% of smartphones therefore escape any control over the real level of exposure of users to radiofrequencies. Much more worrisome, in all other countries of the European Union, as well as in Switzerland and the United Kingdom, 100% of mobile phones escape all control. Although informed, the European Commission is proving to be totally failing to protect the health of hundreds of millions of users. Such regulatory laxity towards the mobile phone manufacturers and distributors must stop!

Under pressure, ANFR obliged to act

Before we issued the alert in July 2016, and legally obliged ANFR to publish all its test reports in March 2018, no mobile phone had ever been subject to any administrative sanction.

EHS (electro-hypersensitive persons): where and how do they live in France?
by Alice Pouilloux, nexus.fr, 20 May 2020 - translation

Some electro-hypersensitive (EHS) persons have taken refuge in temporary housing, others have spent most of their confinement under protective tissues. For them, as for the 3.3 million French people of which I am a part, hell is wireless radiation. ◆ Electro-hypersensitive people, pariahs Being EHS is, for example, as in my case, to suffer the pain of [...]

◆ The electro-hypersensitive, pariahs...

Being EHS means, for example, as in my case, suffering from unbearable headaches in the presence of a smartphone twenty meters away, an internet box two floors below or close to a desk lamp. For many EHS sufferers, confinement represented an increase in their symptoms because of the neighbors who were connected all day long. A vital necessity in this case, to flee... but where? White zones are disappearing, the government has set a target in 2018 with the Élan law.  Public space is forbidden to these outcasts in hyper-connected times: many EHS cannot frequent public transport, café terraces, hospitals, places of culture, education and worship.  Depending on the degree of impairment, working is impossible.

United States (Georgia): Atty Says Verizon 'Corporate Invasion' Risks COVID-19 Spread

Atty Says Verizon 'Corporate Invasion' Risks COVID-19 Spread
By Hailey Konnathlaw360.com, 21 May 2020

Law360 (May 21, 2020, 10:06 PM EDT) -- An Atlanta attorney claims Verizon Wireless sent subcontractors to his neighborhood in a "corporate invasion" that aims to build a 5G tower in his yard, putting him and his neighbors at risk of contracting COVID-19 from the unmasked workers as well as diseases purportedly linked to 5G.

Bill Kaspers, whose firm Kaspers & Associates Law Offices LLC is in midtown Atlanta, said in his proposed class action that a Verizon subcontractor without a face mask knocked on his door in the Derby Hills neighborhood in late March. Standing just past the doorway — not 6 feet away, as recommended during the pandemic — the subcontractor told Kaspers that Verizon planned to dig a hole in his front yard to put in a pole for a 5G cell radio transmission unit, according to the suit filed in Georgia federal court Tuesday. The case was entered into the court system Thursday.

On the Clear Evidence of the Risks to Children from Non-Ionizing Radio Frequency Radiation

Photo from Environmental Health Trust
We thank Dr. Joel Moscowitz, University of Berkeley, for circulating this excellent paper by Prof. Tom Butler, University College Cork, a few days ago. It seems that the information and education about the harms of exposure from the microwave radiation emitted by our wireless devices: smartphones tablets, Wi-Fi - especially to children - is often being ignored in favor of the health concerns of 5G technology. This is regrettable. Microwave radiation has not ever been proven to be safe. The widespread deception of the industry in testing wireless devices such as smartphones shows that the rates of microwave radiation absorbed by the body when exposed to this type of radiation in real-life use (in contact with the body) exceed the limit values set by the authorities. We praise the courageous actions of associations like Phonegate Alert which are exposing this widespread deception, and the Environmental Health Trust and other organizations informing the public about the potential risks of wireless technology. (This blog has a section on "Phonegate": 201 articles,)

Technology: How much radiation are we exposed to? Who do I contact if I have a problem? A National commission wants the government to respond more quickly.
by Lise Bailat, Tribune de Genève, 20 May 2020 - translation

After the popular backlash, the political backlash. The Health Commission of the National Council points the finger at the federal government's management of 5G deployment. It has just narrowly approved (11 votes against 10 and 3 abstentions) a motion proposed by Benjamin Roduit (PDC/VS) that puts pressure on the government. "It is clear that accompanying measures for 5G are planned by the Federal Council. But the three measures that are relevant to health, in my view the most important, are buried in the package, while those that benefit the deployment of this technology - such as the simplification of authorization procedures - will be implemented more quickly," says the Valaisan.

The committee hopes that at least two of the health measures will be implemented by the end of the year: monitoring of radiation exposure and the creation of an environmental medicine consultation service.

According to the timetable presented by the Federal Administration, these developments were not expected before 2021-2022. Too late, according to elected officials. "I believe that 5G is indispensable. But there is no question of turning a blind eye to health either," emphasizes Benjamin Roduit. We must take appropriate measures, not to stop 5G, but to protect the population, especially hypersensitive people."

Effects of Electromagnetic Fields on Viral Infections

Effects of Electromagnetic Fields on Viral Infections
by Jacques Lintermans, Doctor of Science and André Vander Vorst, Professor Emeritus UCL -
translation

I. Introduction

Among the elements that fuel the controversy about the effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF) on the human body, the possible action of these fields on the immune system has not received much attention until now.

Currently, this issue is of great concern since the emergence of a viral epidemic that some suspect has been promoted by massive exposure of the population to high power mobile phone antennas. (1,2,3)

It seems reasonable to admit that the steps that can lead to a pathological state after massive exposure to EMFs consist of immuno-suppression in exposed subjects, causing a weakening of their immune system and favoring infections on contact with pathogens, in particular viruses.

Each of these stages can be analyzed in detail.

II. Exposure to EMFs

Germany: Doctors' Letter Against 5G

Doctors' letter against 5G,
klaus-buchner.eu, 4 May 2020 - translation by "Towards Better Health"

We doctors and psychotherapists with an interest in environmental medicine see a connection between electromagnetic pollution, immune deficiency and global epidemics

We call for a drastic reduction of the high-frequency emissions spread worldwide.

Dear Federal Chancellor,

The inhabitants of the globe are currently experiencing a widespread wave of disease caused by the SARS corona virus 2. At risk are mainly elderly people (with frequent deficiencies in essential nutrients) and those with previous illnesses or a weakened immune system (e.g. due to vitamin D deficiency which is particularly prevalent in winter and spring). The loss of human life and the consequences for the economy and employees due to the politically decreed massive restrictions on contact cannot be estimated, nor can the psycho-social consequences.

We, the undersigned doctors and psychotherapists, consider two other factors besides those mentioned above to be significant. Apart from the degree of infectiousness of the virus, it is above all the receptivity of the "host" that plays a role, i.e. specifically how well the immune system functions and whether specific virus antibodies are missing or have already been produced. In prevention and therapy, it is therefore important above all to prevent a weakening of the immune system and also to strengthen the immune system in many ways by therapy. Damage to the immune system is caused, for example, by widespread toxins, malnutrition, some drugs, air pollution and certain lifestyle factors (alcohol, nicotine).

Online safely during COVID-19 and after
By JONATHAN MIRIN, Opinion, recorder.com, 15 May 2020

Lots of time online these days? How did I guess? Maybe you’re like us and your child’s amount of screen time has also gone up. But something’s a little different being online at our house. There’s only a couple of places where computing happens because there are only two ethernet cables coming out of the router which tend not to get moved.

Theoretically, we could mix things up because one of them is 50 feet long. Sounds a little burdensome, I know. We used to enjoy the convenience of Wi-Fi before my wife developed microwave sickness, aka “electrical sensitivity” or “rapid aging syndrome.” Microwave sickness is the original term used by German MD’s in the 1930s to describe symptoms experienced by radar operators like fatigue, sleep disturbance, headaches and increased susceptibility to infection.

Anti-5G activists in The Netherlands have taken the government in court over the its “unethical” nationwide 5G rollout that poses “serious health risks” to the general public.

As reported by DutchNews.nl, the Stop5GNL Foundation argues that the rollout of the next-generation telecommunications network should be discontinued until it has been “sufficiently demonstrated that there are no real and serious health risks.”

This comes just weeks after a number of conspiracy theories linked 5G to the spread of COVID-19, though these myths were widely-debunked by the scientific and technology communities.

Apple and Google’s announcement last month of a joint effort to track the coronavirus by smartphone sparked a wave of excitement among public health officials hoping the technology would help alert them to potential new infections and map the pandemic’s spread.

But as the tech giants have revealed more details, officials now say the software will be of little use. Due to strict rules imposed by the companies, the system will notify smartphone users if they’ve potentially come into contact with an infected person, but it won’t share any data with health officials or reveal where those meetings took place.

France: During Full Confinement, an Anti-Nuclear Association Suffered the Wrath of the Gendarmerie

During full confinement, an anti-nuclear association suffered the wrath of the gendarmerie
by Pierre Bonneau (Reporterre)reporterre.net, 6 May 2020

On April 21, the premises of the Next-Up anti-nuclear association as well as the homes of its leaders were searched despite the confinement. The reason invoked - to recover protective equipment - seems very paltry to the people concerned and their supporters.

Crest (Drôme), correspondence

"They fell on us like in an ambush!" Almost a week after the incident, Serge Sargentini has still not recovered.  Living beside the Drôme River in the small quiet town of Crest, this head of the anti-nuclear association Next-Up did not expect, during full confinement, to be searched, handcuffed, and much of the material of his association seized, and to be held for twelve hours in police custody without respecting confinement measures when he is over 70 years old.

Tuesday, April 21, the septuagenarian spotted four gendarmes arriving by surprise, hiding next to the window of his room. "At 8:40 a.m., as we were leaving with my wife through the back door, they came upon us, announcing the search and entry by force. There were insults, spitting, pushing and shoving. Half of them were not wearing masks or gloves," says the retiree on the phone. The reason for the operation? A requisition of masks.

“We are ready, we’re all-in,” the governor gushed. “We are New Yorkers, so we’re aggressive about it, we’re ambitious about it. … We realize that change is not only imminent, but it can actually be a friend if done the right way.”

The inspiration for these uncharacteristically good vibes was a video visit from former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, who joined the governor’s briefing to announce that he will be heading up a blue-ribbon commission to reimagine New York state’s post-Covid reality, with an emphasis on permanently integrating technology into every aspect of civic life.

Her kids were at school, her husband was at work, and the house, a modest, tidy split-level typical of the suburbs, was spectacularly quiet. She brandished a handheld battery-powered device called an Acoustimeter to measure the radiation and waved me on up the stairs to the second floor, into the rooms where her children slept.

Most people are unaware of the scientific call to reduce wireless exposures or they dismiss it outright as lacking a scientific basis. However, there is a large body of peer-reviewed and published research indicating cell phone and wireless radiation poses serious threats to children’s health in Europe and other parts of the world. From memory damage in teens, to sperm damage, to cancer in animals and humans, the scientific evidence grows every day.

Russian experts from the Ministry of Health and the Russian National Committee for Protection Against Non-ionizing Radiation have just released new recommendations for children now moving to online learning at home on computers. They recommend limiting overall screen time, disinfecting the keyboard and using wired rather than Wi-Fi. They also warn against using smartphones for educational purposes.

The Federal Communications Commission’s testing regulations preempt a class suit alleging certain iPhone models emit dangerous radiation levels when carried close to the body, Apple Inc. told the Northern District of California.

Additionally, that court lacks jurisdiction over the suit, which seeks to challenge the FCC’s testing rules, an issue that must be reviewed by a federal appeals court, Apple said in a filing May 1.

Apple’s motion followed an FCC filing that detailed its position on whether the claims can proceed.
