Unsafe Digital Boxes in the Hands of Children

by Syed Tajamul Hussain, brighterkashmir.com, 22 September 2020


(Kashmir Observer)
Being reeling under bizarre covid19 atmosphere, human beings lost all its taste and colours of their outdoor life. Either they are locked and confined indoors or allowing them to march into outdoor environment with suffocating masks and preventive dress kits making them to look like aliens or somewhat whitish death angels roaming more in and out of health premises. When such a stiff and unwanted indoor gets mounting, people find electronic gadgets as the only alternative left to get them relieved from stress. Due to prolonged lockdown and closure of educational institutions, children became very much prone to use electronic boxes at will. Does these electronic boxes are safe for our blooming buds? Does excessive usage or addiction to electronic objects affect children and how much? These curious questions make the parents to worry about and seek for the safety tips to combat such dangerous addiction among their kids.

The prospect of adverse effects of wireless radiation on the human body has sparked fears about 5G technology in Switzerland.

The country is at the forefront of the 5G rollout in Europe, installing over 2,000 antennas last year alone.

However, the speed of the implementation is slowing down over some people's concerns that the technology might be harming them.


In Nyon, on the banks of Lake Geneva, local resident Anna Frusciante, who is electro-hypersensitive, pointed out to Euronews the number of new antennas.

According to the WHO, those who claim to suffer from electro-hypersensitivity report a variety of health problems, which they relate to being exposed to electromagnetic frequencies, such as mobile phone signals. While some report mild symptoms like rashes and skin irritation, others are so severely affected that they change their entire lifestyle.

California: Federal Judge Rules Against Berkeley's Cellphone Radiation Warning Law

Federal Judge Rules Against City’s Cellphone Radiation Warning Law

(CN) — A federal judge on Thursday ruled in favor of a wireless communication trade group five years after they claimed the city of Berkeley’s law that required retailers to warn customers about cellphone radiation violated their First Amendment rights.

The judge concluded that the city’s ordinance is preempted by the Federal Communications Commission’s regulatory actions on radio frequency emissions.

U.S. District Judge Edward Chen wrote in an 18-page order “the FCC could properly conclude that the Berkeley ordinance — as worded — overwarns and stands as an obstacle to the accomplishment of balancing federal objectives by the FCC.”

Mobile Phone Radiation May Be Killing Insects: German Study

Mobile Phone Radiation May Be Killing Insects: German Study
Agence France Presse, 17 September 2020

BERLIN (AFP) — Radiation from mobile phones could have contributed to the dramatic decline in insect populations seen in much of Europe in recent years, a German study showed Thursday.

On top of pesticides and habitat loss, increased exposure to electromagnetic radiation is “probably having a negative impact on the insect world,” according to the study presented in Stuttgart, which is yet to be peer reviewed.

The analysis of 190 scientific studies was carried out by Germany’s Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union (NABU) together with two NGOs, one from Germany and one from Luxembourg.

Of the 83 studies deemed scientifically relevant, 72 showed that radiation had a negative effect on bees, wasps and flies.

Multiple Studies Strongly Suggest Wireless Radiation Is Harming Our Bees
by Arjun Walia, collective-evolution.com, 16 September 2020

IN BRIEF

The Facts:
Unnatural sources of electromagnetic seem to be harming not only us, but our bees, trees and other insects.
Reflect On:  How is so much of this technology able to rollout without appropriate safety testing? Why do many countries already have bans and restrictions in places like schools and nursing homes?

Multiple studies have shown that unnatural sources of electromagnetic radiation “biological effects. period. This is no longer a subject for debate when you look at PubMed and the peer-reviewed literature. These effects are seen in all life forms; plants, animals, insects, microbes. In humans, we have clear evidence of cancer now, there is no question. We have evidence of DNA damage, cardiomyopathy, which is the precursor of congestive heart failure, neuropsychiatric effects…” – Dr. Sharon Goldberg, an internal medicine physician.

Belgium: 5G rollout: provisional licences challenged in Brussels court

5G rollout: provisional licences challenged in Brussels court
brusselstimes.com, 16 September 2020

Credit: Belga
The granting of provisional 5G licences to five telecom operators has been appealed against by three organisations and five private individuals, the Stop5G.be collective announced on Wednesday.

The arrival of 5G in Belgium was slowed down by political disagreements on the distribution of the proceeds. An arrangement granting provisional rights was proposed pending a political agreement. Those rights currently go to Cegeka, Entropia, Orange, Proximus and Telenet.

The plaintiffs, who filed with Market Court of the Brussels Court of Appeals on 11 September, are three member organisations of the Collective – the non-profit association Grappe, Fin du Nucléaire and AREHS – and five physical persons.

They pointed to the many objections that have been raised in recent years against the 5G technology, which according to them has a negative impact on health and the environment.

'An OpinionWay poll carried out on August 26 and 27 reveals the very strong rejection of 5G technology in France. This Tuesday morning, Emmanuel Macron compared the opponents of this new technology to the "Amish" '

65% of French people are asking for a 
suspension of the deployment of 5G

While nearly 70 mayors co-signed a forum this Sunday in which they demand a moratorium on 5G in France, an OpinionWay survey carried out on August 26 and 27 on behalf of the law firm MySmartCab reveals that 65% of French people are also in favor of the immediate suspension of the deployment of the fifth generation of mobile telephony standards.

85% of those consulted and opposed to 5G, for example, prefer fiber which, according to them, should rather cover the entire territory. 76% that the speed obtained with 4G is sufficient, but above all, 82% of respondents consider that all the health studies required must be carried out impartially before the arrival of the new technology in France.

BioInitiative Report: Updated Research Summaries (September 2020)

Please see Research Summaries in the menu to download new files for 2020. The RFR Research Summary (1990-2017) and chapter on Electrohypersensitivity Abstracts (2017) have not been updated.

These are invaluable sets of abstracts and tables covering the RFR and ELF-EMF/Static Field studies of the genetic and neurological literature, on studies of free radicals (oxidative damage), on comet assay studies, and on electrohypersensitivitity. Three graphics show summaries of Effect vs No Effect by percent comparison.

The trend continues that the great majority of studies report biological effects of low-intensity exposures to both ELF-EMF/Static Field and RFR.

New graphics bring current the comparison of studies reporting “Effect vs No Effect” provide a quick look at the number of overall studies, the number and percentage showing “Effect” and the number and percent showing “No Effect”.

Clearly the trend continues that the great majority of studies report effects of low-intensity exposures to both ELF-EMF and RFR, and a small percentage of published studies report that no effects are seen.

Documentary "Dust to Dust - the Health Effects of 9/11"



“Dust to Dust”, a 58-minute documentary produced by Bruce Kennedy and Heidi Dehncke-Fisher, is a tribute to the first responders of 9/11.  It describes their very serious health problems following clean-up of the toxic wreckage of the World Trade Center and the cover-up by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency of the extreme hazardous contamination in the days immediately following the attacks “in order to get Wall Street – and the economy – up and running”.  Attention, the film shows the towers on fire and collapsing.  (The film is available on You Tube).)

French national agency conducts SAR tests on cell phones in contact with the body


In July 2016, a scientific report was published by the French National Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety (ANSES), entitled, “Exposure to Radiofrequencies and Child Health”. The ANSES Report highlighted the results of the French National Frequencies Agency (ANFR) 2015 measurement tests of 95 mobile phones tested in body contact positions – meaning, with no separation distance. ANSES announced that 9 out of 10 mobile phones tested in contact with the skin exceeded the regulatory threshold of 2 W/kg, some of them more than three times.

  • Green party decries 5G’s impact on climate, human health
  • One mobile operator suggested government focus on 4G for now

Grenoble is France’s answer to Silicon Valley, a tech hub where chipmaker STMicroelectronics NV is developing new wireless applications, Apple Inc. has an imaging unit in a former chocolate factory and China’s Huawei Technologies Co. is perfecting touch sensors.

For Eric Piolle, the mayor of the Alpine city and a rising star in the country’s Green party, making sure these companies have access to 5G communication networks is not a priority.

“We shouldn’t just jump on a new technology for the sake of it,” Piolle told Bloomberg in an interview. “We need to pause, and look into the impact 5G will have on the environment.”

Time to Wake Up to the Global Public Health and Industrial Scandal of Phonegate
by Meris Michaels - Revised 2 September 2020

Phonegate Press Book
For over 20 years, cell phone users have been knowingly misled about their true levels of exposure to radiofrequency radiation RFR) 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 RFR exposure, especially regarding children, pregnant women and medically sensitive populations who are more vulnerable to this radiation.

INTERVIEW: Robert F. Kennedy in Berlin was about people who want to continue to enjoy freedom.

by Xavier Azalbert, francesoir.fr, 31 August 2020 - translation of article

Robert Kennedy Jr.  Francesoir
Robert Kennedy delivered a historic speech this Saturday, August 29, 2020 in Berlin in front of a very large crowd (more than a million people according to the organizers but 38,000 according to official sources). Robert is the son of Bobby Kennedy and nephew of John F. Kennedy, former President of the United States, both assassinated. We were able to interview Mary Holland and Senta Depuydt, president of the European section of her association.

Find this exclusive interview in the video below. [See original article. Interview follows his speech in Berlin on 29 August.]

FS: Robert, what do you think is going on in the world?

RK: I think there are people who think that the pandemic was planned, that the virus was genetically made, that it was released accidentally or in a planned way, that it would be like a weapon.

In fact, I don't think anyone knows the answer to these questions.
